    Climbing the ladder is near impossible because Uncle Sam is at the top with a fire hose trying to knock anyone off the ladder that tries to climb it. The writer generalizes because he’s a republican and so disregards the fact that republicans are socialists too. The wealthy(incredibly both republican and democrat politicians tend to be 1%ers) stand on the platform encouraging Uncle Sam to increase the pressure because they fear being pushed off by competition or innovation. They encourage in the form of payment which Uncle Sam is happy to take. Almost every self made person I ever met while I was working said they could have never done it under todays regulations. Every small business I ever worked for saw the increased cost of regulation as the biggest hurdle to expanding. The last several years have seen a trend never before seen in America. More businesses are closing every day than starting. Entrepreneurship is what made America great and it is dying and the government is killing it. Government only has the power to take. It takes wealth through tax and liberty through law. If you think your getting something then your not paying attention. A government dependent is a slave to government. If you think your liberty has no value then go sell it to Greece, stop trying to steal mine.

    Savage, field, swinging. Shall we just say the English language is racist and outlaw it? I have no sympathy for the solon as I love seeing statists taste their own medicine but are there no adults present anymore? I’m so glad I live far away from any major population centers. There is something wrong with city folk. It must be in the water.

    It’s amazing our prisons aren’t empty considering our laws are so numerous and complex it’s nearly impossible to tell if they’ve even been broken, let alone who did it. It’s enough to make one believe or legal system is just another tool our government uses to further oppress the population and really has nothing to do with justice at all. Why doesn’t the media ever call out the government for not being able to understand or implement the very laws they pass?

    When Is It ‘Victim Blaming’ And When Is It ‘Common Sense’?

    It’s victim blaming when you place blame on the person who didn’t break the law. That is common sense. See how easy that was?

    A private company cannot force me to work for them or use their product. The government can and does. Private companies have no power in a truly capitalist society as socialist like to imply. It is only thru collusion with government(socialism) that companies attain this power. Otherwise they lose their employees and their customers. Most of the evil “Wall Street” socialists like to blame their problems on would be bankrupt and nonexistent had it not been for the socialist “to big to fail” policy. Our gestapo police force is the result of the socialist republicans war on drugs(another socialist program). The war on poverty(a democrat pet program) has made climbing the economic ladder like climbing a real ladder with Uncle Sam at the top hitting you with a fire hose. The author may prefer the republican socialist party but libertarians want “none of the above”. Government grows at the expense of liberty. Tax revenue grows at the expense of personal wealth and laws take liberty. Totalitarianism is the natural and obvious conclusion of an ever growing government. Republicans are socialists too. The government can’t solve your problems but it can and will take your stuff and your liberty. If one looks up the word slave in the dictionary it becomes obvious how our government views us. Slavery only requires obedience not ownership.

    Is that why the democrat congress trashed the economy in 08?

  • [11] August 30, 2015 at 11:16am

    It’s because Fed-Ex employees do their job. That’s why the private sector always performs better. It’s called accountability, something non-existent in government unless you’re really low level, then you might be a scapegoat.

    Obviously at least one life could be saved by outlawing baseball. Since that is the litmus test for prohibition in America I’m sure everyone would agree this madness must stop. Outlaw baseball today, save a life tomorrow.

    I’m with you. Whatever fixes things. Both paths are an uphill climb. I just don’t think prying the establishment out of their trenches would be easier than building anew right on top of them. I could be wrong though, wouldn’t be the first time. I only care if the country survives though I’ve no concern for the GOP.

    Now that the word is out the local authorities will show up wanting to see his permits.

    Think

    While the grand jury may use outside experts, they use their own not ones paid for by the accused. I stand by my statement that this is a job for a grand jury not the press and certainly not a company hired by the accused. In fact the accused has no place at the table, the DA must present enough evidence to accuse. Defense testimony isn’t even presented.

    Um… they’ve already lost to one twice.

    “Republicans are the party of limited government.”

    Actually until you start acting like it , no you are not. Republicans fear a shut down for exactly the same reason democrats do. It illustrates how useless government truly is in our day to day lives. The republicans blow every opportunity they get simply because they’re committed to big not limited government. They lie to get elected just like democrats. What 2014 campaign promise has been kept? Any?

    What if we just shut it down because it’s grossly irresponsible with our money. A so called shutdown really only amounts to a small reduction anyway. Last time the government spent more shutting down tourist attractions than they cost to operate. How much more proof do we need that government isn’t competent enough to handle money?

    The bully you speak of is the government you wish to(and have) create. A government that will hurt you and take your stuff because you smoke a joint is a bit more totalitarian than libertarians are willing to tolerate. It’s about liberty and libertarians understand that you can’t trade it for security.

  • August 28, 2015 at 4:10pm

    The GOP embracing a libertarian is no more realistic than the democrats embracing one. The GOP is all about big government which leaves little liberty. Tough to find any common ground there. If you put a good apple in a bushel of rotten ones you will only get another rotten apple. What ails the republican party can’t be fixed because the core is rotten not broken.

    People liked what Obama was saying in 08 too. Once elected however Obama relived his past and disregarded everything he said. Trump is the rights Obama. They’re going to elect him on the emotion of his words and completely disregard who he has bean his entire life. I guess we’ll just have to pray Trump(unlike Obama) is sincere. Deadlocking government is the best we can do for now anyway.

    “Though the cause of the violent assault isn’t entirely clear”
    What isn’t clear? I’ll bet it would be clear if the races were reversed.

    This will probably hurt workers in the end. Placing responsibility on the parent company will likely cause the parent companies to take more policy control. Now workers wages(among other things) will be set by an untouchable corporate executive instead of the franchise owner. How do ask for a raise from someone who you don’t know a thousand miles away with no number? It will simply create more centralized control in this business model. One need only look at government to see how well more centralization works out.

    It’s easier for the government to micromanage a handful of megacorps than millions of small companies. It’s by design.
