news nibbles

I am putting together a handful of news stories that do not warrant their own page here. First is an interesting story of major predators becoming prey. Making it into the financial top 1% is typically a measure of one’s ruthlessness more than any other single attribute. Genius is rarely involved. The Theranos scheme clearly demonstrates that. Attending an institution like Stanford University is not an option for the lower classes like middle and below. The Elizabeth Holmes story starts with her dropping out of her second year there. While the one-percenters might otherwise respect and embrace her crafty immorality, it probably doesn’t go well that she preyed on them rather than the lower 99%-ers. But gol-dang she put on […]

testing supremes

. I’m just a sittin’ an’a rockin’ … watching the show. There isn’t a decision here. Can some people order others around? In a free society, that is. The Supreme Court appeared divided down the middle Tuesday over a Colorado baker’s refusal to design a wedding cake for a same-sex couple, the latest test in the continuing legal battle between gay rights and religious expression. Do people have a right to do or not do anything? Are the black-robed senior citizens competent or not? Are they relevant to the issue? Can any words they utter make wrong be right? Could somebody walk into my bakery and successfully get me to decorate a cake with hatred? Nope. Could nine senile […]

a large supreme, hold the anchovies

The USofA Supreme Court has ruled that concealed weapon carry licenses in any one state are valid in every other state AND that all states must issue them like the good states do. This is really good news as this country has been a hodge-podge of Luddite legislation regarding self-defense tools. While they didn’t use those words exactly, they did say essentially the same thing. Their ruling, for those who attribute supreme super powers to such things, actually says a marriage license in one state is valid in another – like state issued driver’s licenses and such. Which, obviously, would include CCWs. Of course in the feely-huggy socialist people’s paradise, warm acceptance of gay rights is just about the opposite […]

what the right to a jury means

EDITORIAL The Jury as Liberty’s Shield By Shane Smith – September 04, 2015 It’s no secret that government absolutely loathes juries. They are an obstacle, an encumbrance to greater power, and government sidesteps the jury trial any chance it gets. But a jury trial is our right as American citizens, for now, and government has to deal with it in most instances. So government settles for the next best thing: packing the jury box with the most gullible saps our society has on offer and hoping the State’s slick lawyers and judges can cajole the jurors into delivering the desired verdict. The government’s beau ideal of a juror is a sap, a sheep, a serf who knows nothing of […]

4 simple questions

While the information below is still a solid, real part of true history, the links that were included and referenced in it have been removed from the World Wide Web, as far as I can tell. You can try them. They didn’t work from my computer. The cold-case posse charged by Arizona’s Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio investigation found the same things and a lot more. Do a web search on that phrase. There is A TON of supporting evidence. On to the four questions … 1. Back in 1961 people of color were called ‘Negroes’. So how can the Obama ‘birth certificate’ state he is African-American” when the term wasn’t even used at that time? 2. The birth certificate […]

heavily armed sore losers

Casinos are big business, very lucrative and with little investment in things like manufacturing capability or raw materials. Even the little pocket casinos that litter the main roads make big money from a small handful of customers. That’s all okay. With freedom comes responsibility. Each of us is at liberty to utilize or discard our resources any way we want. We trade things we value more for things we value less. Lack of choice is for children who hopefully grow into taking full responsibility for their lives, liberties and properties. We call that “growing up”. In this same free world, the casinos are at liberty to attract, entice, reward and get money from their clientèle in whatever way they feel […]
