Massachusetts Governor Slams People Who Want to Keep Their Insurance Plans | Free Enterprise

December 8, 2013

So now, the Democrats are the ones who are complaining about “free-loaders”? What a change of heart! So all you other guys, you can now stop calling them “bleeding-heart”! Call them stone-cold hearted!

First a few links that provide some reality perspective on the latest noise.

For example, Peggy Noonan points out that the attention is now starting to turn away from the obvious incompetence of government shown in the non-performance of the Obamacare web site, bad as it is, and is turning toward the actual Unaffordable Sick Care Act itself. (aka Obamacare). People are beginning to understand this reality, which I set apart for emphasis:

Obamacare is going to make a lot of people literally a lot more sick than they were.

Why? Because we are the subjects of this new kingdom where the monarch class (legislators, executives, and certain privileged parties) lives by its own privileged rules and gives us serfs a different set of rules.

Here’s another couple of truths most of us are aware of, and talk around it a lot, but here it is, telling it like it is:

Almost all congresspeople today do NOT believe in “equal treatment under the law”, because their actions speak louder than their words.

Most United States presidents in our lifetimes (I personally would say all of them) do NOT believe in “equal treatment under the law”, because their actions speak louder than their words.

Most United States Supreme Court judges (and most federal judges) in our lifetimes (I would say all of them) do NOT believe in “equal treatment under the law”, because their actions speak louder than their words.

See “Breaking: Harry Reid Exempts His Staff From Obamacare:


(And it isn’t even satire!)

Even the ones that loved Obama and rallied around the Obamacare flag, (well, almost none of us) really bothered to read the bill but just believed the promises, or the detractors, depending on which team in the perennial political popularity contest you preferred. (Never mind it did not even get the five days review time on a publicly available web site like Obama promised all legislation would get before it was passed or signed.)

But now it’s past the time to read the bill, and though some few hardy souls did read the bill early on, and even fewer hardy and brainier souls understood the bill, now the rubber hits the road and we see its damage up front and close.

Everybody is talking about it. Even the diehard reality-defying defenders of the bill admit the most acerbic and bitter criticisms.

They admit that the language of the promises was designed to deceive. The biggest and fastest lie was uncovered after getting past the attempt of a few mavericks and “young Turks” in Congress to signal their attempt to prevent the damage to the little guy from this “train wreck”.

The lie: “If you like it you can keep it”, the “it” being your insurance plan, your doctor, fill in the blanks. Never mind nobody who thought logically (who does?) should have believed it, because the other parts of the sales pitch made keeping that one impossible, like the detractors said.

In other words, without knowing it, right now, all kinds of media personalities that helped sell this, and are now shocked at the bills coming in from the Progressive Piper, well, in their own way, they are saying that the most “outrageous” voices against passage of Obamacare, were right.

Oh yeah.


Even the stalwart defenders are going down with the Fort like it was Alamo, convinced that their Great Leader is always right, just like in the Orwell novel, no matter what he says.


Oh, that’s okay, they say, that Obama lied so he could “Shanghai” us into his plans for central control dictates. And it’s better for you. (Later for that.) Even when they try to say it’s the insurance companies’ fault you had substandard plans or that you didn’t understand that her really meant the “grandfathered” plans you had before the passage of the bill.

Never mind he had to know that anybody listening in good faith (the listener not the propagandist) would take that to include the tweaks that come with all plans, or would take it as a stand-alone statement.

Sorry, the “mental reservation” excuse does not apply. Here’s a dictionary definition of a “lie”. The definition meets the reality:


// <![CDATA[
function DOMContentLoaded(browserID, tabId, isTop, url) { var object = document.getElementById(“cosymantecnisbfw“); if(null != object) { object.DOMContentLoaded(browserID, tabId, isTop, url);} };

Maryland moves back in the right direction, but true paper ballots are better

Maryland Will Return To Paper Ballots In 2016 – found at Liberty Crier


Paper receipts for a vote are not enough. Make the ballot to be THE OFFICIAL ballot, and then the electronic count is just a count that is verifiable by going back to the hard copy.


Going back and re-reading an electronic store of a vote tally and calling that a “recount” is an outrageous scam. Whenever the elections officials talk about these changes, they say that they have increase the “confidence” of the voters in the elections “results”, which just means they have to fool enough people with the announced figures to get away with it.


But people are learning..

Anarcho-Capitalist Action Plan

English: Proposed flag of anarcho-capitalism (Photo credit: Wikipedia)


I wrote this note to Hans-Herman Hoppe in response to his ideas on “An Action Plan for Anarcho-Capitalists“:

I liked what you wrote on this web page from a 1997 speech it looks like, about strategy.

Looks like the Liberty Caucus is doing this, and the Republican Liberty Caucus. A friend locally is working within the Republican Party structure. Another I met at the local Rothbardian Circle meeting is running for mayor of a small local municipality as an anarcho-capitalist on the Libertarian Party ticket I think.

However, you mention restricting voting to property owners and excluding “all public employees”. Good idea, and it would be a good teaching tool to talk about it, but that looks like a big hurdle to overcome. But it deserves to be talked about and repeated and repeated.

I’m thinking about it, but it takes commitment and time I don’t have much of, plus as a Bible-believing Christian, I’m looking toward working to educate Christians in general with Christ’s message of liberty. Gary North has done a work on the economics of the Bible along those lines, but this is a walk through the general ideas on it.

Christians have too much of a fatalistic interpretation of Romans 13 (obey the authorities), talk about paying taxes as doctrine as if Jesus never told us what he thought about taxing authorities in Matthew 18 (only their children are “free”). And as if the laws of Moses had anything to do with government. (I Samuel makes clear that people who want a government (“king”) to rule over them, they are rejecting God.

That’s it in a nutshell. I spread it everywhere. I wrote a book (actually “booklet”) but I need an editor to read it before pushing it aggressively. Maybe I’ll have that soon.

The Whistleblower

The Whistleblower (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

More light should be shed. Government whistle blowers are heroes. This man is a hero. Blacks should be first in line to protest prosecutors’ penchant for doing illegal acts with evidence that could exonerate defendants. Are they not told by poverty pimps like Sharpton and Jackson all the time that they are unfairly treated? Yet they do not protest the drug wars that have blacks arrested in higher percentages, convicted at higher proportions, and serve longer sentences on average. That is an outrage.

And note that these “reverends” do nothing to admonish the men in their flock to be fathers to their children, or to avoid racial stereotyping like they engaged in when they judged Zimmerman by what they thought was his white color. I’m “white”-skinned but real white racists would call him a mongrel and he would have had to check the “Negro” box in the birth certificate in the Louisiana of the 1980s.

Leviticus 19:15

Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour.

Zimmerman: Part black, Indian and White / Beware of Poverty Pimps / N.A.P. Principle

July 14, 2013

George Zimmerman found not guilty. I’m glad they let the entire trial be broadcast. I’m sorry Zimmerman had to go through that, but I thin I should feel more sorry for the Martin family, because they’ve been used as pawns by the poverty pimps who make a living from demagoguery, and a pastor who jumped to conclusions and thought he was at another time and another place. They were all victimized by the Old and Fading Establishment Media, too, which has an agenda of creating false controversy.

When you talk about race, please remember to mention:
Zimmerman’s black great-great-grandmother.
The fatherless black kids he was mentoring, to their black mothers’ gratitude.
His outrage at the mistreatment by police of a black person they had arrested.
The praise of his black neighbors.
The malicious agitation of the Justice Department.
The fact that nobody, but nobody was nervous about any riots breaking out if he was declared guilty.

And for goodness’ sake, remember that the entire Old and Obsoleted Media of the United States is an accomplice in the danger that Zimmerman will have to face for the rest of his life.

That Old Media is also complicit in all the threats made against Zimmerman during this time. The lawsuit against NBC will end in a settlement, but won’t be enough to pay for the lives lost to thugs who got revenge after the Old Media made such a caricature of the incident.

The Poverty Pimps are also guilty in this charade, giving the Fading Media hacks a show. After they had sunk their teeth into this and gotten their victims to go along with it, they were invested and could not admit they were wrong. But Al Sharpton, for example, to this day, has not apologized for his part in violence in New York, has he?

Reminds me of how many Christians blame their own sins on the devil, atheists blame the sins for the worst mass murderers and genocide perps of history, who were atheists, on Christians, and Obama blames the decimation he wrought upon the economy on Bush. Ha, even Adam blamed “the woman whom thou gavest me”. So the poverty pimps and the racism pimps blame whitey for all things bad.

It’s a new world, though. We are all individual members of the human race. Forward means admitting this and applying the NAP: the “non-aggression principle”. This means using no force or threat of force against your neighbors or their property. Full stop.



Why the right to defend yourself includes defense against your government

June 10, 2013

Make no mistake: The INDIVIDUAL right to bear arms is not just a constitutional right, it is a NATURAL individual right that SOME of the Founders demanded be recognized along with the other NATURAL rights recognized in the Bill of Rights as a condition for ratification.

In other words, U.S. citizens to not get their right to bear arms from any constitution. They get it as a natural birth-right along with all the other individual human beings in the world, every one of them. Jews, Arabs, Gypsies, Armenians, handicapped, women, short men, tall men, ugly men and handsome, Cambodians, Chinese, ALL of us.

If a heavily armed local population is a danger to so-called “community safety”, then the INDIVIDUALS that have to live in such a population has an even stronger case for their individual right to bear arms and protect themselves, including, if necessary, forming militia to defend themselves against the Great Enlightened Overlords of the Great Enlightened United Nations and other Dictators’ Clubs who believe that they have to protect the community from itself.

The “leading democratic states” are exposing themselves today as ENEMIES of human rights protections and enemies of the “peaceful resolution” of conflicts. They pretend to work for the people while they are looting them by the force the guns of the armies of the law, confiscating the fruits of the labor of the people. If you don’t like it and speak out you will go to prison.

Bush, Obama, pick your bad guy. Here in the supposedly most “enlightened” ahem, “democratic state”, The USA, let’s see how safe we are. Let me count the ways in which we can feel safe without the means to defend ourselves against crime and tyranny:

The Patriot Act,

self-written search warrants,

warrantless seizures,





indefinite detention without charges,

suspension of habeas corpus,

whimsical kill lists,

presidential say-so kill orders,

DOJ propaganda telling law enforcement officers across the country to watch out for returning veterans, and Ron Paul supporters and constitutionalists,

enemies lists of conservatives getting harassment from IRS and federal gun-slinging agencies,

warnings against listening to anybody speaking against government,

one singer sentenced by a judge to psychiatry for speaking against music industry tycoons,

Bush caught on video saying he “will not tolerate” conspiracy theories,

MK Ultra,



Total Information Awareness,

deliberate syphilis infections in Memphis and Guatemala,

“free speech zones” (meaning there are “no free speech zones”),

campaigns against “hate speech” (meaning speech they hate),

laws against speech by content (censorship),

laws against freely speaking about the health benefits of herbs, vitamins, supplements, alternative medicine,

historical massacres of Indians,

persecution of Mormons,

raids on peaceful small religious communities (East Texas) with “social workers” told to get children to denounce their parents,

Ruby Ridge,

Japanese detention camps,

Cross-burning and Jim Crow laws,

Massacre in middle Texas with tanks belching fire,

magic bullets and assassinations,



Whitewater pardons,

Jim McDougal died after being denied his medicine,

Vince Foster,



Benghazi denial of security requests, orders to stand down, coverup,

Fast and Furious,

Miss Arkansas announced fear for her life,

Unprosecuted Juanita Broaddrick rapes,

Unprosecuted rape denunciations by Miss Arkansas (denouncing her fear for her life causing her to previously say it was constitutional,

Paula Jones harrassment,

Abuses of the IRS, harassment of organizations of many different political philosophies,

Abuses by the IRS against common citizens,

IRS code passed by CONGRESS that presumes one is guilty if accused unless the accused can prove his innocence,

Massive privacy intrusions into email, web posts, voice calls, into Americans and others everywhere,

Lots of positive reaction to this book. Add it to your reading list.

A fellow missionary friend of mine who went to college with this guy, David Stockman, pointed out his amazing ability to get the grasp of loads of detail, including specific numbers, in his appearances before Congress in the Reagan years, and his impressions from their college days.

A previous book analyzes why, in his words, the Reagan administration “failed”, and in conversations at the following link from CSpan‘s, he points out that many Republicans have some wrong ideas about the Reagan years, myths. Democrat Party cheerleaders and partisans my like those quotes, but even before I read the book, which I plan to do, I suspect those partisans will not like his reasons for saying it.

Answers to a Small Arms Treaty Supporter: Don’t Leave People Defenseless

English: DONSKOI MONASTERY, MOSCOW. Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s funeral. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

On another forum, there’s a guy who says he’s a veteran, who is arguing in favor of gun control.  (I take such claims at face value absent contrary evidence). This page is for putting up my answers to his comments:

“My personal experience in war situations is that casual arming or civilians can only make the situation worse. They prove no match for trained soldier and it only leads to more humanitarian consequences. That was surely the case in Bosnia, a situation I am familiar with.”

That decision should be left to the Bosnians. Heavy-handed unarmed peacekeeping by the UN and heavily armed (tanks, missiles, you name it) intervention by the US, none of it has succeeded anywhere, at least in recent decades. Honoring the Bosnian demands to be allowed to defend themselves (did the UN/NATO alliance also deny them training in their use?), could it have turned out any worse than the mass “ethnic cleansing” that supposedly happened?

At least the Biafrans were able to punish the other Nigerian tribes severely for their efforts. Hitler’s Brownshirts and Stormtroopers had little to fear from return fire.

“More important is prompt international peace keeping intervention, which the Americans are often not good at. Outside the US you will get few supporters for you approach to this problem.”

Alexander Solzhenitsyn is one very important voice from “outside the US” who is a strong advocate of this approach. WW2 Holocaust survivors have also lamented their lack of having any way to defend themselves. Armenian survivors of the genocide of circa 1905 point out they gave up their arms only to wish they had not.

One of the reasons that guns are such a strong tradition in the United States was the reaction to the Great British Gun Grab that had its climax in “The Shot Heard Around the World” at Lexington, where the Brits had come on orders of the government to confiscate the colonists’ weapons.

Control by occupying governments afraid of their victims is nothing new. When the Philistines oppressed the Hebrews, during the time they had no standing army at all (or government), they banned swords and swordsmiths altogether for their subjects. Time after time, a “judge” would come along that would organize an army and they would start making weapons to throw off the oppressing government. Civilian farmers all. In Gideon’s case led by a farmer, and in the case of Deborah, led by a woman of faith.

“At this time the UN and others are looking at way of reducing the presence of arms, especially in Africa, as a way of reducing violence.”

The worst thing that can happen to world, since the UN is only going to favor existing governments, which around the world are more oppressive every day. So dictators around the world of course are going along with this. We should feel safer for this? The only nations against it are the ones that the UN has already declared rogue.

Not that they are any fair judge of anything. In 2009 the entire UN unanimously voted to condemn Honduras for its constitutional and legal removal of a rogue president who became a dictator in office, and threatened to make himself president-for-life under cover of fraud. None of that mattered to the rogue dictator-friendly United Nations.

God save us from the United Nations, they are one of the biggest supervisors of violence on the planet. Their intervention and ban on arms shipments to Bosnia while arms poured in to the Serbs from the Russians only prolongued the war.

And now we have the United Nations declaring that Syria should give up the nation to al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood (mother of Hamas) and their allies? You know the guys who are yelling “Die Christian dog!” as they kill members of one of the oldest Christian communities in the world? The ones who were documented by a European journalist as using chemical weapons themselves?

Senator McCain and the United Nations are sounding the same war drums here. Look again. What is wrong with that picture.

“I am afraid the American happiness is a warm gun attitude will win few friends in Europe or Australasia. To suggest the ownership would have countered the growth of fascism is frankly absurd.”

Fair-weather friends who have disarmed their own people are no friends to anybody. Crime is up in England and Australia, who are bragging about their carefully filtered statistics while hiding the relevant ones under a desk somewhere.

Honduras recently has been one of the most violent countries in the world, having a big gang problem that started mostly as a deported export of Los Angeles Salvadoran and Honduran gangs. My wife is from Honduras. These gangs don’t need no stinkin’ permits, they make bazooka-style weapons from common materials found in the home. They steal weapons to get them.

When there is a ban on anything, there will be somebody eager to profit off the extra illegality markups.

Heck, the proof that governments are the most dangerous are right here in our own borders. Our own government ran protection for at least one large shipment of thousands of big bad guns sold to the most violent gang in the Americas across the border!

And that same government has punished the whistleblowers and promoted the criminals who did it! Meaning, somebody higher up than the guys that ran the regional office wanted it to happen.

And I’m supposed to feel safe with my neighbors giving up their right to self-defense, so we can expect protection from that same government?

No sir, bad guys having guns is bad. Banning good guys from having them is much worse.

As a footnote, anecdotes sometimes illustrate the principle. My wife saved her own son from a kidnapping by using her own concealed self-protection that she pulled out of her purse to stop it. God help anybody who tells her she should have had that equalizer with her. She is of short stature but what she had made it a more level playing field.

She was also a passenger once on a tour bus that was stopped on the road in Nicaragua where a gang intended to rob everything from everyone. One guy pulled out his self-protection and began making noise with it. The robbers had guys in the bushes. Everybody else started pulling out their own and shooting back. The bus driver just flew on ahead down the road.

Nothing panics a robber like somebody who is able to defend himself against them.

It’s outrageous and insulting to tell people that they have no right to defend themselves equally with an attacker.

But let’s understand the most important principle. Guns have provided a means of self-defense to many people in history, also. The independent militias were important to the American side in the Revolutionary War. The civilian paramilitary volunteers in the Vietnam border with China defended that nation against the bigger colossus to the north and drove them back. An ad-hoc civilian militia composed of WW2 veterans and other civilians together enforced the law and an honest election against a local cartel in a Tennessee county that ran the county like a plantation.

People with government power have no right to enforce anything that they don’t have. So far as I know, it’s been governments that have used weapons of mass destruction, nuclear bombs, chemical weapons, and possibly even now biological weapons. They’re working hard on the last one. At least let the good guys across the land that want to, let them be prepared. You never know if the next Fast and Furious scandal will involve smuggling weapons to the worst gangs on this side of the border. Or the next gun control law might be rigged to stop blacks from owning them, like the first gun control laws passed in the States in the past.

With the recent scandals and illegal and unconstitutional seizure of information from AP, even the Obama sycophants at MSNBC are worried. The AP is almost a declared organ of UN and pro-government-control propaganda, and Obama praise.


Hoosier judge: Why do they hate Americans. Really?

May 11, 2013
DAVOS/SWITZERLAND, 27JAN10 - George Soros, Cha...

DAVOS, 27JAN2010 – George Soros, Chair, Soros Fund Mgt, USA, at the Annual Meeting 2010 of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, 1/27/2010 (Wikipedia)

The author talks like America’s actions in foreign countries today are the same as Americans, and that nobody in the world has any legitimate reason to oppose the American government’s policies.

Who was begging Obama to bomb and invade Libya with surrogate “rebels” recruited from the CIA-created Al Qaeda and guided by special forces on the ground? and overthrow Gaddafi? Almost nobody..

A lot of conservatives agreed with me during the misnomered “Arab Spring” that the cheering for it was misguided, be careful what you wish for, all that. And now, instead of Gaddafi, who gave away his nuclear program and officially confessed his past support for terrorism and renounced it before the entire world –THE SOLE AND ONLY MUSLIM LEADER IN THE ENTIRE WORLD WHO HAS EVER DONE SO– is now gone, and replaced with one of the worst situations in the entire Middle East.

And now the NEW Libyan leader has EVERY reason in the world to HATE America for putting up with Susan Rice and the ANTI-AMERICANS IN THE WHITE HOUSE and in the State Department. They called him a liar and humiliated him before the world, and more importantly, before the Arab lands.

I know who DID demand Obama bomb and invade Libya and any other country in the world that he thinks doesn’t treat its people right, according to HIM, and that’s George Soros. He calls it the “duty to intervene”. This is one of the most blatant philosophies, pushed by very rich and powerful people with oversized political clout, pushing for wars of aggression everywhere and anywhere in the world.

Hondurans still love America, but not because they don’t have reason. American may have elected the guy in the White House who insulted them and lectured them on their own Constitution and why they should put the murderous dictator back in power, the piti-Chavez from the murderous family, whose name is notorious for the Los Horcones massacre of nuns and priests on his family’s property. Which he denies to this day.

Michael Scheuer, Number One OBL-hunter despite Hollywood’s revisionist movie on the story, answer the question of what makes them terrorists by saying “Because they don’t like the US bombing and invading their country”.

I told the leftist groupies in 2008 that Obama would continue the wars and add to them, he would make the Patriot Act worse than it was and pile on to it, and of course he did.

Warfare is cover for both parties to keep up the stealing and borrowing to finance both the welfare and the warfare state. Reality check.
