  • Nike and the Colonial Flag

    Nike and the Colonial Flag

    Any White, non-Jew who wants to offer his opinions on both the Holocaust and US slavery has got to be a fool. Nevertheless, I’m going to do both. I’m prompted by the issue of Nike deciding not to feature the flag of the 13 original US colonies on one of its shoe styles. All countries […]

  • The Shoe On The Other Foot

    The Shoe On The Other Foot

      My kids spent a significant portion of their childhoods growing up in a little town in Idaho. It’s a lot smaller than Tikrit, or Basra or Helmand province, but little Idaho City and Boise County can serve as an illustration of a principle. What principle? Well, the principle of people of simple means resisting […]

  • Why Citizenship and National Sovereignty are Obsolete

    Why Citizenship and National Sovereignty are Obsolete

    We are all born into a world that operates on very old software. Software that was designed centuries ago and operates on principles and parameters that would be laughable if not for the human suffering and impediment to the advancement of the species it ensures. Citizenship Some people never really become aware of this, but […]

    This Post is NOT an Attack on US Veterans

    Following yesterday’s mass killing of five people at Ft. Lauderdale airport, allegedly by Esteban Santiago, who served in Iraq from April 2010 to February 2011, I wonder if Mr. Trump will issue the following press release: “Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of all US veterans re-entering the United States […]

  • Farewell to Our Killer in Chief

    Farewell to Our Killer in Chief

    Sometimes I feel like I live among Jihadists who love the killing and are so certain it’s both necessary and justified. I mean, we can’t let other countries run their own affairs. We have to bomb them until they do what we say, and sell us their resources for cheap. Because, freedom & democracy!

  • Protecting Intellectual Property

    Protecting Intellectual Property

    Those of us who come from the Libertarian, Anarchist, Capitalist, Voluntaryist or similar schools of thought are used to dealing with coercive elements who lay claim to our property, particularly in the form of confiscating our “fair share” of taxes. The coercers begin with some premise that gives them, they say, the moral right to […]

  • As Goes Greece . . .

    As Goes Greece . . .

    When the bad financial news hit the world in 2008 Greece had a debt to GDP ratio of about 113%. That’s around where the US is right now, although with the monkey numbers all these countries use it’s hard to know how bad things really are.

  • Other Pledges

    Other Pledges

    I didn’t grow up in America. But as a child I was still propagandized by my State. Every morning in the school classroom we had to stand and sing God Save the Queen, and later, O Canada  and recite The Lord’s Prayer. The implication was that, above all, our political ruler(s) must be preserved and […]

  • Please Stop Voting To Hurt Other People

    Please Stop Voting To Hurt Other People

    I get so tired of people waving national flags and bragging about how they live in Freedom. Because they don’t. Freedom is the condition of every individual having complete control over his or her life and property. Therefore, – if somebody can successfully vote to have your money taken from you, you don’t live in […]

  • Government Job Creation

    Government Job Creation

    In their never-ending quest to garner enough votes to stay in power politicians have several time-proven tactics. One of these tactics is to promise that initiatives will “create new jobs” for the community. This is how a pure government program works. They announce there will be a new $100 annual tax. However, that tax will […]
