    Perhaps because the SCOTUS already said it was legal. As for recent rulings, they refused to hear arguments regarding indefinite detention. What else is there to say? Flipp’n court is too busy to weigh in on a right we’ve had since the Magna Carta? That’s lunacy. The system is broke. Has been for a while. We’re just seeing it’s climax.

    There’s always a higher court that says the government can do whatever the hell they want.

    How much ya reckon it costs for the pharmaceutical companies to push a drug through the FDA?

    I don’t really think you get the gist of my objection to modern LEO’s. They carry out the arbitrary whims of communists. They tear families apart for victimless crimes. They seize property, when it’s the government’s job to protect it in a free capitalist society. They are becoming increasingly militaristic and aggressively policing rather than passively maintaining the peace. They even infringe on the 2nd amendment… The videos just add salt to injury.

    As for social workers, what era did most of their programs start, and who was lobbying for them? Yes, they’re miserable progressives, every last one of them.

    Well, your premise that Bush and Cheney went too far is only half correct. The establishment of both parties was unanimously in favor of setting up the American Stasi. Ron Paul spoke out more than any other against it. Massie, Amash, and a few other libertarian leaning R’s, along with a few decent reps across the aisle have introduced/co-sponsored legislation to rid of us this crap. The establishment of both parties has shot them all down. It really isn’t a partisan issue.

    I don’t know, man. I guess I know they exist, but it seems they’re the minority. At least today. I reckon some of the old timers here seem fairly principled. (RJJ, BryanB, perhaps you, etc.) On the other hand, I’m sick of the abuse we keep seeing practically every day. This country has been subverted by fascists/commies/socialists. They deserve no loyalty, yet receive it from the folks thoughtlessly enforcing their whims. The only semi-legitimate reason for government to even exist is to protect property and individual rights, and the only legitimate use of force is against those that initiate it’s use. Everything else is just thuggery. Seems if your statement were accurate, those dedicated to protecting and serving would stop the hyper-aggressive thugs we see on Youtube holler’n “stop resisting” while beating the crap out of someone out of anger or adrenalin. Pretty crappy job of policing yourselves, really. Either they hop in the fray, go after the guy filming their crimes, or simply tune it out/justify it somehow. I guess it would be easier to swallow if there were actually more cases of good cops putting bad cops behind bars for irrationally initiating/escalating the violence.

    “One of the things that does annoy me … is when people who are successful don’t appreciate how they got there, you meet a guy who is very rich but hates capitalism,” he said, “well, how are you going to tell the next guy you want to destroy the system that gave you that opportunity?”

    That’s awesome. I’m not sure it will be well-received by the cronies running the show, however.

    I care less about immigration than I do about altruism as an “American value”.

  • [1] July 20, 2014 at 2:56pm

    Your champion of conservatism is talking about the needs of others as an American value like any other run of the mill socialist. So piss off! Legal is just a bureaucrat deciding how many numbers we take from each country, and if you want to criticize me for my public education you might want to learn when it’s appropriate to capitalize ‘you’. Ass hat.

    “These children, while they’re here, we need to care for them well, we need to demonstrate American values.”

    Like?…

    “Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free;
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
    Send these, the homeless,
    Tempest-tossed to me
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

    Seems we’ve found ourselves in a pickle regarding our American values. Or an outright philosophical contradiction. Of course those wanting to breathe free can’t do so while being dependent on the government. My suggestion would be to end the welfare state. In the end that is the real problem.

    @Monk, Laws are just the whim’s of men. In this case an international body. We all know what the sanctions after the Desert Storm caused. If you can’t discern from history what the nature of the beast really is, and have to rely on the written edicts of others to form an opinion, you’re not really being intellectually honest with yourself. People starve to death due to sanctions. It is indeed an act of war. Reason trumps law because law is rarely formed by reason. When countries’ economies are stifled, enforced by a military, you can’t even call it an act of war? A = A, dude.

    I actually think in a education environment would be a better fit. Kind of what he’s already doing. Not much an Austrian can do in a Keynesian system. And even though the SOCIALIST security junky blood-thirsty fundamentalists don’t like him, he resonates with the younger crowd and is spreading the right ideas about property rights, capitalism and liberty. Someone will have to rebuild this country after these parasite boomers, who also seemingly want perpetual war, devour us.

    “The Russians have a major hand in the shooting downing of the Malaysian passenger jet, and for Ron Paul to say other wise, is just wrong.”

    That’s what the Obama administration and our media says. Personally, I don’t trust either.

    @Barber, “What part ‘ of invading another country’s border ‘ do you consider warrants the label ‘ calm and rational ‘ reasoning ?”

    So people that preemptively invade other countries are excitable and irrational. I agree…

    Yeah because the other two parties are just flipping awesome! … sigh.

    That’s such crap. And to think the governor of that crap state was the one the GOP was going to shove down our throats before the bridge stupidity.

    Hell, I’m a libertarian that thinks immigration is a natural right. What I don’t think is natural is stealing from people to pay for others. Now you argue this is private charity, and that is fine, however when you make it a virtue to provide for the needs of others privately, it still shows up in the public sphere and we get compassionate conservatism. Altruism and capitalism are opposing philosophies. One offers freedom the other serfdom. Glenn has contradictions in his philosophy and his leading people astray. Most middle class people are one major illness away from bankruptcy. Then they’ll have needs to be met. A vicious cycle that leads to perpetual sacrifice, and it won’t even work.
