I’m working on transferring this blog to this site. As you can see, it’s a total work in progress, but it shouldn’t look too much different from what you see here at good ole’ wordpress. On account of the fact that it’s being built using wordpress.
But have no fear, this sexy blog is not forgotten! If any of y’all are personally familiar with me, you’ll know I’ve been really busy lately. But, while I may not have been blogging, you’ll be happy to know that I’ve been busy promoting liberty. I have begun broadcasting once a week from 10pm-12am on wednesday nights. I broadcast with rick caldwell, and you can listen at Ifaq.us we’ve got about 9 shows under our belts so far (we did an annex of our 8th show because of massive content overflow). So far it has been an exceptional expierence and has grown much more quickly than I would have expected. I’ve also registered Thenewactivist.org, although I have not yet fixed it up like it needs to be. (actually, right now, it’s a picture of a hot japanese girl and a bunch of random test pages). But yeah, thats what I’ve been up to, and most of why I’ve been gone for so long.
Now, I’m all about some free markets, and thats certainly not what we have here, but lets just clear up the fact that my sentiments on government will line up very little with the apparent majority at those protests.
That being said, here is the link to 5 videos of police attacking demonstrators with rubber bullets, batons, tear gas, and pepper-spray. As a human being you possess the right to assemble, you have the right to move freely in a public space (God-willing, public spaces will disappear at some point), and you ABSOLUTELY have the right to protest self-proclaimed rulers. Pittsburgh police reported less than 50,000 dollars in property damage (link), I’d venture to say that much property damage probably occurs any given day in any major city.
The fact is, police barred entry to portions of the city so that a collection of rulers could get together and tell people how to live their lives and spend their money. There is NO justification for any of this.
Whats more disturbing is the apparent left v right trend in opinion on this subject, with many comments on the story being absolutely insane, such as this one.
CHOKE–ya left-wing filth! The first Civil War in America was between North and South. The next will be Left vs. Right, and I look forward to gettin’ in the streets with you trash, and caving yer godd*mn skulls in!
Not bothering to get into the ignorance of the fact that america NEVER had a civil war (definition here), is this really what these people are coming to? What major differences are there exactly, between “left” and “right”?
Now, there are multiple schools of thought on this, and I’m torn, no questions asked totally torn on this subject. I HATE the state, end of story, no questions about it.
So the question that remains, is should I continue my libertarian party mike stance, and refuse to take government handouts on principle, or, should I go with the logical pursuit of my goal stance, which is to suck as much as I can off the state while giving the minimum to it in order to further starve it?
PLEASE tell me what and why!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SAAAAWHEEEEET! Cops are undergoing training in several parts of the country to learn how to draw blood from potential DUI cases. AWESOME. It’s not like police already have too much authority and abuse that, lets authorize them to jab people with needles too! Hey, maybe we’ll get lucky and they’ll be authorized to check people for this SUPER-DUPER-ULTRA-LEATHAL-DEADLY-TO-THE-MAX swine flu!
They can protect and serve everyone by keeping their blood in little vials! Cause that’s not a bad idea in any way!
