It’s wrong to force someone to do a service involuntarily

March 1, 2014

That’s why it’s called “involuntary servitude”. The term was used for chattel slavery of recent centuries (still persisting in some places) but it also applies to any service that a victim is forced to perform under threat of confiscations or prison or anything else, by a neighbor, a neighborhood crime syndicate, a political movement or a government.

This is my reaction to somebody’s condemnation of “state’s rights”:

http://rcooley123.wordpress.com/2014/02/23/when-states-rights-are-wrong/

I say it is an outrageous wrong to require the Jewish owner of a bakery to create a cake with Nazi symbols for a Nazi celebration under threat of government-enforced extortion penalties. .

It is an outrageous wrong to require the Muslim owner of the bakery to create one that shows a pig on his imam’s grave.

It is an outrageous wrong to require a rape victim to do a birthday cake celebrating her rapist.

It is an outrageous wrong to require an Armenian print-shop owner to publish a book praising the Turkish treatment of Armenians in the early 20th century, or to require the Turkish counterpart to publish the Armenian version.

Extortion is a crime, whether an individual does it, a crime syndicate, or a government.

Compelling a person to perform a service under threat of monetary confiscation or imprisonment is a criminal violation of the victim’s rights, no matter how noble you think your cause is.

Theft is theft, it is not equality

Woman wants to force Muslim business to give her a haircut

February 28, 2014

Muslim refuses to give a woman a haircut for reasons of faith, woman sues to force the business to serve both men and women:
http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2012/11/15/woman_denied_haircut_goes_to_human_rights_tribunal_of_ontario.html

(She is a lesbian who wanted a man’s type of haircut)

This has an easy solution: the non-aggression principle.

If you believe in the non-aggression principle especially, it’s a matter of the freedom from being forced, compelled, to do something under threat.

You don’t have the right to stick a gun in my face and get me to do a day’s work without pay. Slavery for a day.

No matter what some tyrannical law says, no matter whether some illegitimate “government” or police state sycophants say….

Nobody has a right to force a Jewish bakery to sell them a cake with Nazi symbols on it.

Nobody has a right to force a woman to sell them a cake that quote Dan Brown’s favorite fraudulent “feminist gospel” with “Women cannot go to heaven”.

Nobody has a right to force a black artist to paint the slogan “Whites are superior’.

Nobody has a right to force a barber to give a service he does not want to give.

Compelling you to perform a service that you would not do voluntarily, is called involuntary by definition, as in involuntary servitude.

Fascism defined with example

February 28, 2014

A left-fascist (who would deny being “fascist” but forgets that the different labels for command-and-control governments are just meaningless team designations for the same thing) wrote this to me in another forum:

fas·cism [fash-iz-uhm] Show IPA noun 1. a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism. So… Who is this dictator that has you so terrified? It certainly isn’t Obama, because if it was you would have been imprisoned long ago.

What follows was my reply…
Well, it’s not quite visibly complete dictatorship yet, at least to most people…

“Ruling by decree”…

Much has rightly been made of President Obama’s promise to bypass Congress and act unilaterally to get things done. “I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone,” he said, threatening to sign more executive orders and blast more messages from his bully pulpit.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/daviddavenport/2014/02/24/obamas-executive-power-pen-is-already-worn-out/

38 czars and counting….bypassing Congress. Oliver North talked about a “shadow government” but Obama has brought it into the light…. “None so blind as those who will not see” –

Listen to Obama’s defense secretary tell Congress to their face that the Obama administration will decide on its own whether to go to war, although they might ask the UN for permission — and to hell with what Americans think. In other words they’ll do what they want to regardless..

Like the war against Libya without even a nod at Congress as required.. Leaving Syria alone for now only because of the uproar.. People are learning about freedom and the war machine tricks in spite of their attempts to shut it down…

100s of illegal orders to exempt friends and sponsors from Obamacare with no legal basis.

Shutting down drilling in the Gulf with “no legal authority” to do so, according to a judge who got so angry at their refusing to obey that he ordered them to accelerate the process (with judges like this, who needs enemies…

forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism


..Janet Napolitano’s Fusion Center enemies list…

…IRS audits ordered on all vocal critics,

…the slow-walking of conservative and libertarian and Christian applications,

…Sending FCC monitors into broadcast studios to interrogate them on how they select news stories in their obvious attempt to intimidate them waving the licensing authority around,

..Obama threats against the licenses of broadcast stations after some pointed questions to Biden in an interview as early as the 2008 campaign..

…NSA surveillance cover blown.. Congress is on notice… They are watching…

regimenting all industry, commerce, etc.,


“..regimenting..” Good one. Sounds like regulation for a reason.. Clinton shutting down the 2nd largest clean coal mine in the world by decree…

Obamacare, the most intrusive commands yet into all business, ordering them all to buy a product, in fact ordering every man and woman in the country to buy a product like it or not and ordering what they will be…

 and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism


Yes, begging the UN and NATO for ever more wars..

Doing the bidding of mentor and plutocrat puppet master George Soros…. Left-fascist GW dragging us into two wars, and Obama expanding to two then three then four other nations.. Pushing for war on Syra, with an eye on Iran..

He’s talking about cutting the Army’s size but make no mistake. He already said a long time ago that he wants to pour more resources into Special Forces and espionage..

 and often racism.


Yes, wanting to push abortion mills aggressively to help prenatal infanticide promoter Planned Barrenhood, wanting more government money to reduce the population of undesirables, Margaret Sanger’s eugenicist dream..

Hiring openly declared Marxists for un-vetted “czar” positions that advocate race-based action..

And announced today, getting foundations $200 million for his so-called “Brother’s Keeper” think to “bolster the lives of young men and boys of color”.. Only certain races and colors need apply.. White poor can go to hell, they don’t need mentoring even though their ancestors back 20 generations likely never owned a slave…

Blaming a policeman based on his color for responding to a burglary report..

And despite his admission to snorting coke and toking up a cloud of smoke as a young guy, HE STILL WAGES THE DRUG WAR ON PEACEFUL USERS, in which BLACKS get a higher per capita arrest rate, higher rate of conviction, and longer average prison sentences..

So... Who is this dictator that has you so terrified?


“Terrified”? You’re the one that wets his pants at the mention of the name of Jesus in the wrong public place. (Proving my point, there are some militant atheists who immediately reacted with indignation right now at the mention of the name Jesus).

You’re the one who goes hysterical at the mention of some decent citizen packing heat. You’re the one who’s terrified at the mere mention that you might not have a welfare state to coddle you (a great big confidence game that).

I’ve seen it all coming since the 1970s, and I’ve been warning the nation and the world, and it’s happening. But grace for the hour will come when TSHTF (the crap hits the fan) for those who know their God.

People like you will freak out and depending on how much you keep your senses, a lot of people are going to blame the victims. just like the Nazi’s and the Bolsheviks, they will blame the Christians.

 It certainly isn't Obama, because if it was you would have been imprisoned long ago.


Not for lack of wanting to, I’m sure..

Former left-anarchist, now anarcho-capitalist, answers criticisms

February 21, 2014

After commenting on this web page about dictator Maduro’s abuses against demonstrators and his armed forces and police shooting at them (one of their killings -with police shooting an escaping protestor in the back and– was caught on video and is posted at Univision). The author there (Roblos Ricos?) apparently blamed the killings  on “rightists”, although most of the violence was done by Maduro’s authorized armed enforcer groups, police and his own paramilitary..

After commenting about Venezuela, I noticed the anarchist references. In college, after my Marxist phase, I “progressed” to anarchism, or most would call it “left-anarchism”. My Russian teacher and me were the only ones I knew of there.

I’ve learned a lot since then. Reading one of the anarkismo links I must comment on a couple of possibly honest mistakes about anarcho-capitalists, as it seems like one that actually thinks rather than doing the echo chamber yelling at the guys not on their team.

One is that they seem to confuse Ron Paul and his son Rand. They are very different. Ron Paul is honestly and consistently pro-freedom in all his positions and votes.

Anarcho-capitalism is, in fact, totally AGAINST the abuses of big corporations, who are only able to get away with the worst abuses by hiding behind the platitudes of their cronies in government.

In fact, you can find links to information about their abuses on their well-read sites. Militarism, corporate abuses, and the like. As a matter of fact, to help un-confuse the deceitful use by political oligarchies of the language, I call the statists with the term “left-fascists”, because they have no problem pretending that you have “ownership” or title, when they can tell you what you can and can’t do with it, or simply seize it for their developer buddies like happened in the Kelo v. New London suit.

Anarcho-capitalism involves the strict application of the non-aggression principle, which is that people have the right to be free of aggression. The aggression is any act of force or threat of force to induce an action on the part of another, or fraud (which is another aggression), or the act of theft against an individual.

No worker of any proletariat wants anybody stealing from them. Every one of them aspires to better his material lot in life. In fact the very criticism is a recognition of the very fact that every person should enjoy the fruits of his own labor.

For a young couple or small family, that might mean being able to save enough (wealth, small as it may be) to invest that capital –yes CAPITAL– into a small entrepeneurial effort, such as a sandwich or ice cream truck.

(I’m also posting this comment there. After all, I used to an anarchist with similar thinking.)

Can’t have a war without soldiers

Congress rolls over for the executive (Ron Paul):
http://www.lewrockwell.com/2014/01/ron-paul/congress-rolls-over-for-the-executive/

What to do when cops pull you over:

Top brass, military and civilian, were told minutes after it started, about the “terrorist” (their word) Benghazi attack, with no mention of any video, to then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and minutes before they reported on it to the President:

Alcohol: study says it’s the “direct cause” of 80,000 deaths a year in the USA:

The countries with the highest rates of alcohol-related deaths were mostly in Central America, including El Salvador (27.4 out of 100,000 deaths each year), Guatemala (22.3 out of 100,000) and Nicaragua (21.3 out of 100,000).

Overall, men accounted for 84 percent of alcohol-necessary deaths, though the male-to-female ratio varied from country to country. In El Salvador, the risk of a man dying from an alcohol-necessary cause was 27.8 times higher than that of a woman, while in the United States and Canada, the risk was 3.2 times higher.

There were also differences in age groups for alcohol mortality between countries. In Argentina, Canada, Costa Rica and the U.S., the highest mortality rates occurred in individuals between 50 and 69 years of age. In Brazil, Ecuador and Venezuela, the highest mortality rates were seen in individuals between 40 and 49 years of age.

No Such Agency also gets info from offline computers:
…And so China wants international rules on computer spying. Hahaha. Spying for me but not for thee.
How about we all stop our governments from doing all that spying on us.

Bumper stickers: “Stop watching us”…

“The NSA: The only part of government that actually listens to you”.

And they’re already bringing criminal charges against political opponents in Wisconsin:
…Who said political authorities would ever respect free speech?

 

Gay activist control freaks for anti-Christian censorship: Free speech for me, but not for thee

April 1, 2012

“T-shirt company in crosshairs for saying no to homofest”:
http://www.wnd.com/2012/03/homosexuals-blast-t-shirt-company-over-beliefs-speech/

A human rights official in Kentucky says it might be perfectly fine for a printing company run by “gays” to refuse to print anti-”gay” literature, but a Christian company refusing to print T-shirts for a “gay” event would not have that same right.

This is the trouble with government thought police inventing “group” rights, totally tramping all over the natural human rights of individuals. Groups do not have natural rights, and using the US Constitution to do it is an exercise of Orwellian Doublethink, because the only rights recognized by, but of course not “given” by, the US Constitution, are individual rights.

One of those is the right to associate with whomever you choose, the “right of assembly“.

The Fourth Amendment does not “grant”, but recognizes, the right to be secure in your property, papers, effects, and your life. Government censorship is a violation of the natural rights of both the First and the Fourth, superior to our Constitution and recognized as such in both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution itself.

That’s the beauty of the US Constitution: it’s written in the common man’s English, and we can point to where “even the Supreme Court” obviously messes it up.

Like seizing private property from a number of individuals to give it to developers.

UN Group Under Fire For Keeping Syria On Human Rights Panel | Fox News:
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/03/08/un-group-under-fire-for-keeping-syria-on-human-rights-panel/

This group voted to keep them on the Human Rights Panel:

Watchdog group U.N. Watch said Thursday that the latest vote shows UNESCO officials are afraid that if they boot Syria from the human rights panel, “many of them would be next.”

Like I said when the entire UN voted against Honduras, including the traitorous representative from Honduras, when Honduras restored constitutional order by ousting the dictator Manuel Zelaya, it’s just a club for dictators and wannabe dictators helping build a world order where human rights are meaningless because you only get the ones they want you to get and when they want you to get them and if you are one of the ones they want to have them.

Who’s the “they”? Whoever they decide gets to decide. Like this time this panel where the majority voted to let Syria keep its say in human rights issues.

It’s time to spread the message of liberty and freedom. Ron Paul is the symbol and champion of freedom right now, but it is bigger than him.

In fact it is the Golden Rule itself.

It’s time for Golden Rule Government. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Aaron Task writes disinformation spin for the Fed

January 26, 2012

Here’s where his article appears at yahoo:

No, the Fed Does NOT ‘Print Money’: Just Explain It:

http://finance.yahoo.com/blogs/daily-ticker/no-fed-does-not-print-money-just-explain-150433185.html

This is from the “Give Me A Break” Department.

In the third paragraph, the guy couldn’t help but let slip why they are publishing this article now, probably setting the stage for a bit of another illusionist’s deceit it their bag of tricks to save the rigging somebody apparently set up for the election.

All you guys who are in your first class of Economics and Finance They Never Taught You in School, who are asking “what somebody?”, either keep your dial tuned to this station, or, just simply Follow The Money!

Hey! When Ron Paul talks about “printing money“, everybody that supports him ALREADY KNOWS he’s talking about MONEY SUPPLY, not printing presses!

Here’s LOOKING AT YOU, AARON TASK! —AND YOU KNOW THIS!

In fact, Ron Paul took note during a congressional hearing once that the Fed has stopped publishing their estimates of what they call “M3 money supply” which Aaron Task knows is more what Ron Paul is talking about when he says “printing money”, saying they could not estimate the figure anymore with sufficient accuracy. Ron Paul rightly observed that it’s a good guess that their real reason is that Americans would be shocked at the figures.

All the manipulations that Mr. Task listed that the Fed does to control the real money supply, that is what they do.

BUT HERE IS WHAT AARON TASK DELIBERATELY LEFT OUT, because I think he knows a little more than he is explaining, so I will “just explain it”.

The Fed DOES put out dollars in circulation now with electronic entries authorities by the selected persons at the Fed, and Quantitative Easing is exactly what is meant by “printing money”, meaning putting dollars into the money supply (now mostly electronic transfers anyway), which has the same effect as printing press dollar production, only worse and faster.

If buyers around the world were not eating up all this cash by using it to buy Treasury Bonds and other means, the dollar would have crashed a long time ago.

The big money players around the world have lost confidence in the stability of the dollar, and the “full faith and credit of the United States” has lost its polish, and even the guys in charge of the American economy (the administration) and the guys in charge of manipulating our money (the Fed) and the central banks around the world, have said they need to study a transition to another worldwide currency.

But they are already married to the dollar, they have gobs and gobs of dollars, and they want to get their money’s worth, so they are riding out the dollar, this “green paper pig”, a  balloon they know is about to go bust, while they work out how to do it. And whatever deal they cut, we all know that what they have in mind is making Americans pay, the American economy. They may market it here in the USA as a “tax on the rich”, but they know it will be our blood, sweat and tears they will  require.

The only presidential candidate telling the truth to the American people about all this is of course RON PAUL. The detractors are committing big sins of omission, in what they are NOT saying, what they are hiding from you. (Here’s looking at YOU, Aaron Task).

And the truth is, that every increase in the money supply is grand theft larceny from the pockets of the poor and the middle class. That’s inflation, a word that does not do justice to the value it robs from the dollars the poor use to buy food and gasoline and pay rent. This is the kind of deceitful theft that the Bible calls a “false balance”. The “false balance” was what merchants of old used to cheat their customers, like pretending they were selling you a pound of wheat when the stone they used in the balance was actually lighter than a pound and the buyer was getting less that he was told.

Proverbs 11:1 “A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight.” (Proverbs 11:1).

John 8:32  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

 

Ron Paul campaign suing the fraudulent anti-Huntsman ad is a win-win for Ron Paul’s message

“Under current law” he wins, if the courts follow the law.

There are none so blind as those who can’t see “that Ron Paul has any legitimate case”.

#1. The persons that posted that video obviously intended for it to slander Ron Paul’s good name by making it look like his campaign created it, by the names they used at the end, PLUS the author’s comment on the web site itself saying that “the campaign” had requested they not divulge any identifying information.

#2. The very first external reference back to that video was on the Huntsman campaign web site, within scant seconds of its posting on youtube.

#3. The damages are real, as the usual guilty parties in the Big Money Media figures pushed it as something from the Ron Paul campaign.

#4. The fact that they are suing based on sufficient grounds to uncover the anonymous authors of this libelous subterfuge, is already a win-win for the Ron Paul campaign, in the real world, because
(a) it demonstrates that it was not the Ron Paul campaign that posted this video, but that
…(b) they also consider it a despicable and legally actionable slander against what his message stands for, and that
…(c) it shows that somebody was out to intentionally smear the campaign, the message, and the man in an illegal and actionable way
…(c) other “fellows of the baser sort” that might consider another such subterfuge should beware that they could be hit up for damages, whether it is another candidate’s supporters, or media figure.

Establishment economists do what they’re paid to do, denounce gold standard

January 21, 2012

“rawstory” delivered up a story from AFP about a “panel” of 40 economists, “bipartisan” they said and repeated (oh yeah?), that denounced the idea of returning to a gold standard. They used the word “bipartisan” while they also mentioned that the other candidates are feebly echoing Ron Paul‘s support for a gold standard:

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/01/18/economists-pan-idea-of-new-us-gold-standard/

AFP was pathetically backwards wrong on the Honduras situation in 2009, so I’m not surprised they repeat this globalist neo-conservative disdain for using money of genuine intrinsic independent value.

And “bipartisan” my rear end! as the expression says it. How stupid do you guys think we are? Go back to your Money 101 class, even Keynes bow to “full faith and credit of” clause, it’s a Keynesian trade secret.

What people need is a medium that is immune to the political whims of bankers like the ones that own the Federal Reserve, like gold. They can’t manipulate its worth, which these Master Manipulators think is a bad thing.

When the Fed increases the money supply, it’s the big banks that get the big dollars first, and that means they and their best and biggest clients the biggest corporations can use it to multiply their own record profits. Now with more money floating around prices go up because they chase after the same production of goods and services, ==> and that is the ROBBERY BY STEALTH that is fiat currency.

These are “experts” blessed by the political rulers to give their religious blessing. It’s an “opiate for the masses” so the blind can lead the blind into the ditch.

Ron Paul is right. Golden Rule Government is the best for all of us, the poor most of all.
