Milton Wolf asks: Is this still America?

Milton starts off with a great Ronald Reagan quote: "“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction,” and "Public schools in San Antonio have installed video cameras, not to monitor for foul play or intruders, but to spy on kids’ eating habits."

Read the whole piece.

What has America Become

A letter to the editor of the Iosco County News Herald:


Has America become the land of special interest and home of the double standard?

Lets see: if we lie to the Congress, it’s a felony and if the Congress lies to us its just politics; if we dislike a black person, we’re racist and if a black person dislikes whites, its their 1st Amendment right; the government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and they do almost nothing for the victims; in public schools you can teach that homosexuality is OK, but you better not use the word God in the process; you can kill an unborn child, but it is wrong to execute a mass murderer; we don’t burn books in America, we now rewrite them; we got rid of communist and socialist threats by renaming them progressive; we are unable to close our border with Mexico, but have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea; if you protest against President Obama’s policies you’re a terrorist, but if you burned an American flag or George Bush in effigy it was your 1st Amendment right.

You can have pornography on TV or the internet, but you better not put a nativity scene in a public park during Christmas; we have eliminated all criminals in America, they are now called sick people; we can use a human fetus for medical research, but it is wrong to use an animal.

We take money from those who work hard for it and give it to those who don’t want to work; we all support the Constitution, but only when it supports our political ideology; we still have freedom of speech, but only if we are being politically correct; parenting has been replaced with Ritalin and video games; the land of opportunity is now the land of hand outs; the similarity between Hurricane Katrina and the gulf oil spill is that neither president did anything to help.

And how do we handle a major crisis today? The government appoints a committee to determine who’s at fault, then threatens them, passes a law, raises our taxes; tells us the problem is solved so they can get back to their reelection campaign.

What has happened to the land of the free and home of the brave?

Wednesday, February 15, 2012 Military Service makes vets less agreeable

Does military service make people who aren't vets less agreeable? Can you do military service without being a vet? Maybe being a writer for MedicalXPress makes 'journalists' less literate.

Screw you MedicalXPress! I am agreeable!

Military service changes personality, makes vets less agreeable

Fair Share Socialism

Lately we've been hearing a lot about people paying their "fair share" from Obama. This is the latest buzzword for socialism, socialism is a bad word nowadays. Mostly because it never worked. So now we have "fair share." People need to pay their "fair share" according to Obama. The problem is, is that someone's fair share is decided by the government. After they take their cut of course. And the penalty for not paying your "fair share" is going to prison.

You can't really take the moral high ground here for making someone pay their "fair share" because you are making that person pay, under threat of force and jail. So, what you are really doing is robbing that person. If that person is using more than their "fair share" of government services, then by all means, they should pay their "fair share." Maybe they have six kids, all going to a public school. Maybe they have a fleet of trucks that chew up the road a lot. In the case of the trucks, they are going to pay a larger licensing fee and weight fees, as they should. But when they have six kids, and are in a lower income level, are they going to pay more? Not even close. More likely, the person with no kids, in the house with the higher property value is going to pay for those six kids. So you're penalizing the person who doesn't have kids, and rewarding the person who had six and couldn't afford them. This is called the "fair share."

Milton Friedman on Equality

A great quote from Friedman's Free to Choose on equality:

"It is striking testimony to the changing meaning of words that in recent decades the Democratic party of the United States has been the chief instrument for strengthening that government power which Jefferson and many of his contemporaries viewed as the greatest threat to democracy. And it has striven to increase government power in the name of a concept of "equality" that is almost the opposite of the concept of equality Jefferson identified with liberty and Tocqueville with democracy."

Arizona Law Enforcement to learn about the Holocaust

I just read about a program where Arizona Law enforcement agencies are going to learn about the Holocaust.

You know, that's great. But that's not a great use of taxpayer money for training our law enforcement agencies. Stop me if you think I'm wrong, but perhaps they can, I dunno, maybe learn how to subdue a man armed with two pool cues without killing him? Maybe when we can do that without discharging our firearm, then we can bundle our happy asses off to the Holocaust class. Who set that shit up? EJ Montini?

FAIL: Benjamin Percy Tries to write about Marines and tough guys

I was just forced to read a story written by the usual suspect, a liberal college professor with an axe to grind against Bush, the military, and the high school football players that probably beat him up on a daily basis. Benjamin Percy writes Refresh, Refresh a story about a rural town that is home to a Marine Reserve Battalion. Just a few problems Benjamin. (I'm pretty sure he goes by Benjamin...another reason he got beat up daily in High School):

A small town cannot support a Marine Reserve Infantry Battalion of 1000 Marines genius. Company yes, Battalion, no.

They are called recruiters not recruiting officers. A recruiter who recruits officers is called an Officer Selection Officer. Perhaps if you bothered to do thirty seconds of research you would have figured that out.

My recruiter was a tanker named Sgt Hyde and had arms like tree trunks. I would really like him to read Percy's description of Dave the recruiter and have a Marine Recruiter to liberal douche-bag style talk with Percy the college writing instructor. I'm pretty sure that would be a short talk. Of course Percy got an award from all the other gerbil-racers for his fantastic writing. Maybe the Marine recruiters can nominate Percy for another kind of award. The kind that needs to be surgically removed.

Here's a video of Percy talking tough about sleeping on the ground as a kid. Or maybe he was passed out on the ground after being knocked unconscious during PE. You decide. Talk with a deep voice, and you too can hide your ingrown vagina.

Montini's Comfortable Stereotype

E.J. Montini of the Arizona Republic write's about his stereotype of Vets here:

Marine, vet, patriot ... and threat

The Marine Montini was talking about is Sgt Jason Prostrollo who was shot by Scottsdale police last Saturday night for attacking seven of them with pool cues. In Montini's world view, all vets are psychotic PTSD crazies who are set to go off like an IED at the slightest provocation. Now, I'm sure Montini looked around the internet a little and figured out that Prostrollo had a few issues as a kid (nothing serious) and the Marines actually straightened those issues out and he did well, going up to the rank of Sergeant and going through the rigorous screening of Marine Force Recon. But these things don't interest Montini, he wants Rambo to go crazy, that way America doesn't have to do bad things like go to war. Not only that, but Montini gets to implicitly spit on soldiers and Marines coming back from the war, without taking any heat for actually committing the act. One of those "I support the troops, but not the war" phonies.

The issues with Montini and the rest of the liberal phonies are really inside of them. They support the environment, are anti-military, anti-business and anything that makes them look like gentle, caring human beings. The reality is quite the opposite. They usually end up treating their family and friends (if they have any) like shit. They are social misfits for the most part, and will treat total strangers better than their own family. Unless those strangers don't agree with their world view. They are intolerant of differing opinions and often financially self destructive. Montini is a good example of this, he knows he is in a conservative State, that his paper is on the rocks due to their liberal bent and alienating the paper's readers, and still he and the Republic consistently decide to shit where they eat.

For more on Sgt Prostrollo's case, read here.
