The Coming Constitutional Crisis

Thursday, October 23rd, 2008

The following motion was filed in US District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania on October 22nd, and entered earlier today. This is an amended filing from the earlier motions (as is clear from the text); based on the state of the case as of the 22nd. Earlier, the Obama campaign filed a motion [...]

Gunblogger conference call with Missouri Governor Matt Blunt

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

Earlier today, I participated in a conference call with Missouri governor Matt Blunt, on the subject of gun rights, John McCain, and Barack Obama. You may recall that recently, the Obama campaign worked directly with democratic party elected officials in the state of Missouri; engaging prosecutors and county sheriffs, to intimidate local media outlets, and [...]

A slight profundity

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

A question was asked of me recently: “Why don’t libertarians and real conservatives win elections”. Simple really. True libertarians and conservatives share the same electoral disadvantage: True libertarians and real conservatives, CANNOT win electorally, in a climate where everyone is allowed to vote; and that “everyone” includes the huge politically created classes (both underclass, and [...]

Ha Ha Only Serious

Monday, October 20th, 2008

This has to be John McCains Best Speech Ever Seriously, McCain delivers what is certainly the best speech he’s ever given… and it’s a comedy routine. Part 1: And part 2:

In fact, let me say unequivocally, I’m OK with more people dying, so long as we have more freedom; be it with drugs, or guns, or sex, or anything else. Are there limits? Of course there are; at the very least, my fist is limited by your nose… but doing immoral, unethical, and unconstitutional things [...]

1,2,3 Set’em Up, and Knock’em Down

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

So, last night I watched, in succession (through the wonder of teh intartubes) the RNC speeches from Fred Thompson, Rudy Giuliani, and Sarah Palin. Folks, there has not been a better slate of political speeches in my lifetime. Oh sure, Romney, Huckabee, and Lieberman were in the mix; but their contributions were meaningless and everyone [...]

A Hell of a Way to Describe the Dilemma

Wednesday, July 9th, 2008

“When it comes to picking our next president, I can’t decide if I prefer the smooth-talking, inspirational candidate who promises to give my money to people who don’t work as hard as I do, or the old, short, ugly, angry guy with one good arm who graduated at the bottom of his class and somehow [...]

Somehow, I just feel like this is appropriate right now

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008

“Comrade Members, like fire and fusion, government is a dangerous servant and a terrible master. You now have freedom—if you can keep it. But do remember that you can lose this freedom more quickly to yourselves than to any other tyrant. Move slowly, be hesitant, puzzle out the consequences of every word. I would not [...]

Anyone Else Object to Being Called a “Human Resource”

Monday, June 30th, 2008

Ahhh work, that most marvelous of pursuits that keeps food on the table. Today was my first official day of work as a full time employee of Gigantomegabankcorp North America, where I have been a contractor for 26 months. Going from Contractor to FTE means bennies, paid time off (25 days a year actually. Woo [...]

What are you REALLY voting for?

Friday, June 27th, 2008

Yesterday, the supreme court announced that the constitution actually means what it says, and that it’s OK if we want to exercise our pre-existing and fundamental rights… at least most of the time, presuming we follow the allowed restrictions… Don’t get me wrong, I’m very happy about Heller, and I think it’s a better ruling [...]

A Human Right, A Civil Right: Fundamental, Pre-existing, Strictly Scrutinized, Universal, and Incorporated

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

This morning, I’m noting a lot of ill informed …or perhaps just informed by misunderstanding of the text… opinions and statements regarding the historic Heller ruling on the scope and applicability of the 2nd amendment. This of course is unsurprising when many people of varying levels of knowledge about law, history, and firearms have just [...]

Three Words

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

Well, three words, and three thoughts associated with them… I’ve not spoken much about politics this year, specifically because when I WAS talking about it I found that it was absolutely impossible to have any kind of civil discourse with the Paulistinans, and Obamaddeans; and that the Mitt and Huck types were all heavily into [...]

A Timely Reminder

Sunday, April 6th, 2008

No matter what you think of John McCain, everything said in that video is entirely true and correct; and people should remember that whilst … I’ll be charitable and call it arguing… about politics for the next 7 months… and for the next forever for that matter.

A Personal View of the DC VS. Heller Oral Arguments

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

I watched/listened to the oral arguments in DC vs. Heller this morning, and in my view (solely based on my knowledge of the justices, and the questions and arguments raised today; which is always iffy) we’re looking at a mixed bag. Well, first the good news. It seems clear that the entirety of the court, [...]

John Adams

Monday, March 17th, 2008

Let all become attentive to the grounds and principles of government, ecclesiastical and civil. Let us study the law of nature; search into the spirit of the British constitution; read the histories of ancient ages; contemplate the great examples of Greece and Rome; set before us the conduct of our own British ancestors, who have [...]

Saw this one coming

Wednesday, October 10th, 2007

So, for the last few years, supporters of gay marriage have pretty much given up on the legislative route; and have been depending on judges to try and impose their agenda on the states. While I have no problem with the concept of gay marriage (the state should not be involved in religious marriage; and [...]

12 Steps to Mind Rape

Sunday, September 9th, 2007

The ninth circuit court has recently ruled that you can’t force someone to go to a 12 step program against their will, as a condition of their release; because it is in effect forcing someone into religious indoctrination under the color of governmental authority. For those of you who have been living in a cave [...]
