    “At the establishment of our constitutions, the judiciary bodies were supposed to be the most helpless and harmless members of the government. Experience, however, soon showed in what way they were to become the most dangerous; that the insufficiency of the means provided for their removal gave them a freehold and irresponsibility in office; that their decisions, seeming to concern individual suitors only, pass silent and unheeded by the public at large; that these decisions, nevertheless, become law by precedent, sapping, by little and little, the foundations of the constitution, and working its change by construction, before any one has perceived that that invisible and helpless worm has been busily employed in consuming its substance. In truth, man is not made to be trusted for life, if secured against all liability to account.” Thomas Jefferson

    @Amanda, Fine let’s talk about morals. Why don’t we start with the 20 bullet holes in each of the unarmed men, and the verdict that the officer in question was convicted of felonious assault and walked. As for the protestors, why do you assume they would not have accommodated emergency vehicles or a funeral?

    @Mrs Jones, Yeah, the courts have upheld that you need a permit to exercise your first amendment rights as well, and a myriad of other bad decisions from Marbury v. Madison to Dred Scott to upholding ObamaCare. We can read the constitution, which is supposed to be the supreme law of the land, and it plainly states people have these rights. Furthermore, civil disobedience is just that, non-violent disobedience. They protested, no harm was done, and the riots everyone here was sure would take place didn’t happen.

    I read through it once, but I’m not on my game at all. Sick as a dog, and Memorial Day weekend typically puts me in a funk. My initial thoughts are there are some good points, but I’m stuck on the idea of human nature. You, with a religious point a view and me with an objectivist point of view, that seems like a sticking point. It would seem to me, if there were such a thing as human nature, people would make the same choices in the same circumstances, but they don’t unless put into a situation where no choices are given, and even then it comes down to fight or flight. I’ll read it again, when I’m in better spirits.

    @MattC, Great argument. Let’s deprive people of their natural rights because it’s an inconvenience. Not sure where the right to not have to go around protestors is located in the constitution. That’s nothing but stupid-ass sophistry.

    Sigh, There’s a NBA playoff game in Cleveland tomorrow night at 8:30 and the article says there’s only a couple dozen protestors.

    @Catb, You didn’t seem too concerned about armed militias on the highway during the Clive Bundy controversy, which also included brandishing. Just saying.

    @teleprompter, If you have any evidence, please link. Because the only information I have is from this article, which includes a few paragraphs and a couple of pictures.

    When and if this becomes something more than a peaceful protest and civil disobedience, I will renounce their actions. Until then, I’m going to stick with the idea that people have a natural right to peacefully assemble and protest, and that the constitution is on the side of those protesting and not with you neo-fascist nationalists.

    Yeah and it’s wrong. You know I don’t support the destruction of property. I don’t think there’s anyone on here that has clamored more loudly about property rights than myself, but we do live in a fascist police-state and seems we’re at a tipping point. Link your article, and I’ll check it out. Eventually. There’s a bad stomach virus going around and I am, apparently, not immune. I’ll give you feedback after I digest it among other things….

    Show me where in the first amendment it tells people when and where they can peacefully assemble and protest, and GFYS with your childish rant & name calling.

  • [5] May 23, 2015 at 4:12pm

    There comes a time where this philosophy has gotten lots of people killed. With Jade Helm, and all the commies and fascist running this country, I’m afraid we’re close here. 50-30 years ago, sure, you’re right, but I’m scared of our government myself, and scared people run.

    It’s Saturday, dude. Most people don’t work on Saturday, from the pictures this doesn’t seem to be a racially motivated protest (at least from the top picture showing more white folks than black folks), and as of right now they’re merely exercising their first amendment rights. It won’t be chaos unless the commie media agitators and the Soros-funded professional provocateurs show up.

    You’re kidding, right? He’s gone along with republicans on foreign policy much to the dismay of many libertarians. Perhaps you might elaborate.

  • [2] May 23, 2015 at 1:19am

    They don’t have to kill him. They have their ferret faced shill in there to split the vote, and brand new rules from the last convention to make sure a nominee is declared early.

    @RJJ, OK, he’s no better than Kruschev. My bad. (Not being a smart ass. I’m truly grateful for the correction)

    @Miami, He had tough choices, but ultimately concluded the ends justify the means, and the legal justification/framework is the same. Meanwhile the technology is so much more sophisticated, so yeah he’s still a dick. Then there’s TARP, “I went against free-market principles to save the free-market”, No child left behind, expansion of Department of Education, Medicare, Medicaid, the DHS, TSA, the Iraq war, destroying SEC records of their investigation of the attack itself, and on and on and on. I do you think your analysis is spot on, I just hate that guy too.

  • [5] May 23, 2015 at 12:30am

    LOL! Who negotiated the terms of the “pro business, anti worker, anti environment bill”? I hate both parties equally, so I’m not sticking up for the GOP. They can rot, as far as I’m concerned, but you are a special kind of stupid.

    You’re awesome. I don’t remember reading any of your previous posts, but I will certainly be sure to keep an eye out for any of your future posts. Good stuff. It fascinates me how religious libertarians and non-believing libertarians or objectivists have come to the same conclusions regarding the NAP. Clearly, I have more reading to do.

    I think you nailed it at first, but Bush is a dick. Post 9/11 legislation is no better than the East German Stasi under Stalin.

    “However, heroin, cocaine (crack and etc) and meth need to be stopped.”

    Stopped how? Because even though I agree these drugs are dangerous, the only solution we’ve been given so far is for government to take money from people involuntarily, to pay thoughtless brutes to kidnap them (kill them if they don’t submit) and stick them in cages (also paid for by involuntary theft) with actual violent criminals. Even with all this fascistic barbarism, the problem still exists, and is exacerbated by the rise of violent cartels. How much blood are you willing to spill to stop it, and why do you think the ends justify the means?

    Funny that Murray Rothbard’s name, the Misses Institute, or the NAP never comes up in the Blaze’s vision of libertarianism. Heck, I think the folks at Reason are soft libertarians at times, but they seem like good people and they’re a hell of a lot more libertarian than anyone at the Blaze.
