From NoGov4me.Net:
"Anarchy is not chaos. It is not destruction. It is simply the absence of 'government'. The agency most people erroneously identify as 'government' today is in reality a gang of lawyers, armed thugs, and con artists backed by an army of bureaucrats, which operates an immense array of protection and other rackets financed through extortion and fraud." -- Bill Malloy

I have added HaloScan comments. Click on the "Comment (n)" link below the title bar of each day to pop up a comments window. As long as you "own" your comment, with your real name and email address, I will almost certainly let it stand. If you post anonymously, and your post offends me, I may delete it. Of course, I reserve the right to delete any post for any reason. This weblog is my property. I control it. But I encourage reasoned debate, no matter how much your opinion disagrees with mine.

Joyce Lee Malcolm at Reason - Gun Control's Twisted Outcome - forbidding the use of defensive weapons, including firearms, has caused England's violent crime rate to soar above the United States. [scopeny]

The illusion that the English government had protected its citizens by disarming them seemed credible because few realized the country had an astonishingly low level of armed crime even before guns were restricted. A government study for the years 1890-92, for example, found only three handgun homicides, an average of one a year, in a population of 30 million. In 1904 there were only four armed robberies in London, then the largest city in the world. A hundred years and many gun laws later, the BBC reported that England's firearms restrictions "seem to have had little impact in the criminal underworld." Guns are virtually outlawed, and, as the old slogan predicted, only outlaws have guns. Worse, they are increasingly ready to use them.

Bob Wallace at - Guns and the Dumb - why safety training works better than prohibition when it comes to firearms. Mostly because safety training works and prohibition doesn't. [trt-ny]

I will, guaranteed, trust a 13-year-old raised with firearms over a 40-year-old who wasn't.

George W. Bush at Whitehall Palace via The Federalist - President Bush Discusses Iraq Policy at Whitehall Palace in London - a 39 minute speech given on Wednesday. Good speech. If only I weren't convinced that the whole thing was a lie. [trt-ny]

Jim Duensing at The Libertarian Enterprise - Homosexual Marriage - why we should oppose state recognition of homosexual marriage. There is nothing wrong with people having lifelong, committed relationships with other people of the same sex. The problem is that it expands the domain of government power. Instead, we should get government's tentacles out of the marriage contract. [tle]

The Libertarian Enterprise - Letters to the Editor - some conversation, mostly from smith2004, between Scott Bieser, Lehr Duquesne, and Alan R. Weiss. [tle]

Patrick K Martin at The Libertarian Enterprise - The Murder of a President; and the death of a constitution - reflections on the murder of John F. Kennedy and the ensuing government coverup. [tle]

Well, I could go on trying to be funny about it, but I won't. The fact of the matter is that we, the American people have been lied to for forty years, and we all know it. It doesn't matter who pulled that trigger or triggers in Dallas, because the important part is that members of the US government and it's agents and agencies have participated in a conspiracy to cover it up. The FBI, the CIA, the US Military, or at least the higher ups in these organizations at the time, helped to carry out a coup in this country, and we all know it. The downfall of our constitution happened on the day that the president died. The welfare/warfare state created by LBJ and the others who assisted in this crime persists to this day and drags us all ever closer to total slavery, and America knows it.

For forty years we have been dragged through Vietnam, the war on (some) drugs, radical environmentalism, the oil crises, welfare, inflation, the loss of our constitutional rights at all levels and we have done nothing. We have not rioted, we have not risen up, we have not hanged any congress-critters, refused to pay taxes, refused to sit on juries, refused to keep feeding the juggernaut that is grinding away the ideals that are America. Oh sure, a few people have acted, and too many of us applauded as these malcontents were dealt with by the minions of law-enforcement. Most of us however have sat on our butts, whining about the injustice of it all as we watch our money being stolen from us, our kids indoctrinated and our rights ignored. Why, because we all know that no matter how much we believe in the power of the individual, no matter how dedicated we are to freedom, we also know that raw physical force is one thing that is cumulative and it's on their side, not ours.
