Quotes of the Week

Sorry, not much time to read this week.........
From the Light:
“If a crime is big enough, it becomes official policy. Steal $10,000 from the local bank, and you're a felon; steal $8 trillion on behalf of the banks, and you're a federal policy-maker.”
Will Grigg

“Government is neither about morality, nor immorality but always about power; either as a protector or predator and sometimes as the principle in both roles at once. When it is understood that government’s power is in reality compulsive unification then it becomes equally obvious that any nonconformity will not be tolerated.”
Tim Case

From the Darkness:
"Now that the need for urgent action is even clearer with the alarming new findings of the last three years, it is time for a comprehensive global plan that actually solves the climate crisis. 'Our Choice' will answer that call."
Al Gore, The Climate Christ, describing the his future New Testament, called “Our Choice.”

"The dollar is extraordinarily strong right now."
Barry Obama

"Our insatiable demand for illegal drugs fuels the drug trade. Our inability to prevent weapons from being illegally smuggled across the border to arm these criminals causes the death of police officers, soldiers and civilians."
Hillary Clinton [Sorry, Queeny. The only “insatiable demand” is that of the state’s appetite for still more control over the affairs of individuals.]

“This legislation represents the best of America's ideals -- offering a helping hand to our neighbors and to our country.”
Sen. Ted Kennedy, after the Senate voted to more than triple the size of Ameri-Hitler Youth-Corp.

IDF fashion statement:

The Audacious One has a flash of brilliance:

"Advertising men and politicians are dangerous if they are separated. Together they are diabolical."
Philip Adams

No need to worry about those “toxic assets.” The Audacious One will make them magically go away:

Crusaders assist with Afghan education:

Bad prospects on the business horizon:

Some remain in good spirits:

The questions are just as cliché’ as the answers:

Slippin’ into darkness. Civilization takes a ceremonial blow:

Light Flashes

Dallas deputy admits guilt in cocaine scheme

Don’t you love it when the state eats its own, while enforcing its silly, stupid, irrational laws?

Its saves us freedom fighters so much time and effort.

Fill the prisons with cops! That’s where they belong!

Irving student campaigns for an old official: Texas State Dinosaur

My first thoughts were what a waste of time debating such trivial matters.
I then realized that the more time the legislature spends arguing such irrelevant issues, the less time it has to find new ways to invade the lives and pocketbooks of peaceful individuals.

This young man may be on to something, without realizing it. It’s obvious he’s being raised a statist.

My vote is for General Motors.

Bees smother car, swarm season begins

Why doesn't Obama DO something? How are we supposed to live in utopia when our government protectors allow such things to happen?

Pass a law requiring automobile manufacturers to develop a bee-resistant auto paint. Pass a law requiring all bee colonies to register with the state before swarming to a new location.

Something MUST be done! Doing nothing is NOT an option!

`Hillary: The Movie,' now showing at Supreme Court

"Felonious advocacy?"

And they keep telling me this is a free country? The fact that someone can utter such a phrase without being attacked in kind says a lot about people’s slavish attitudes toward the state.

McCain-Feingold is nothing but a protective screen for politi-gangsters. McCain learned well from his North Vietnamese captors.

The number one priority of those in power is to STAY in power.

Geithner plans to get millions in toxic assets off books of struggling banks

So, the bankers (inspired by state regulators) make poor decisions and the taxpayer gets stuck with the bill- through more public debt and a devalued dollar.

Meanwhile, these same bankers and their supporting politi-gangsters continue to live the high life, while the lowly tax serf (and his great-great-great grandchildren) get stuck paying for their idiocy and irresponsible behavior.

The profits are privatized but the losses are socialized. Folks, this is 100%, pure FASCISM!

Broken Wylie water main leaking 3,000 gallons an hour

No surprise here. This is typical behavior when the government controls the distribution of a resource. No one actually owns the resource, so the people that claim control over it see no need for a swift repair.

If the water was actually owned by a private enterprise, the loss of this resource would not be tolerated, as it would affect the profitability of the enterprise. Repairs would be quickly completed.

When the state owns a resource it has absolutely no incentive to manage it properly.

Texas is taking a greater interest in global warming

Anthropogenic global warming is the biggest scam ever perpetrated on humanity. A well-read 10 year old can easily dispute and disprove this goofy theory.

But leave it to the state- they have no problem passing on a scam and destroying lives if they and their politically connected friends can make a few bucks on the deception.

Officials question plan to tax bailout bonuses

As much as I despise the reality of these bonuses, the fact is this legislation is unconstitutional. As Jeff Langr points out in the STR Blog, it violates Article I, Section 9- “No bill of attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.” The bill would make the 90% tax on AIG retroactive to December 31, 2008.

They also would be punished without benefit of a trial, another violation of the once sacred Constitution.

But then, since when (at least in our lifetime) has this piece of paper prevented the thieving, murderous, money-counterfeiting US Government from doing what ever it pleases.

You soldier boys in the military take an oath to “defend the US Constitution” from domestic enemies. The obvious domestic enemy that currently exists is the permanent ruling regime that occupies the District of Criminals. Their actions certainly deserve being defended against.

Come on, soldier boys, where are you when we really need you? You were absent on 9/11 and you continue to be neglectful in your duties.
No violence necessary- just evacuate and padlock the place. How hard can that be? No enraged, well-armed insurgents to deal with- just a motley collection of pointy headed, pot-bellied bureaucrats to gently sweep out the door. Bring some beer and make a party out it. Truly “serve your country” for a change!

Obama administration unveils plan to help banks

These "toxic" loans will then be wrapped up into tidy little securities to be sold to your pension fund or 401k. They then default and what's left of your retirement disappears.

Does this sound familiar? The scam worked before with no consequences. Why not do it again?

Union OKs strike at AT&T

Don't like your job? Go find another, better one. That's what honest people do.

So you work in the "landline division?" You should be thankful you still HAVE a job, considering that quickly aging dinosaur. Those jobs are doomed. You might as well be working in a buggy whip factory.

Nations Start to Agree on Paying for Climate Pledges

What are these “pledges”? Are they sacrifices to Gaia?

“In December, China, India and other developing nations failed to win agreement from industrialized nations on increasing funding by about $20 billion to help poor nations cope with the damage caused by climate change.”

You just know that ANY problem that arises related to climate (floods, drought, storms, volcanic eruptions, etc.) will be considered “caused by climate change.” You can also add AIDS (or any other disease), poverty, psychological problems, ADD, restless leg syndrome, and the heartbreak of psoriasis.

You can always find some crooked scientist to testify that “climate change” caused any or all of these problems, as well.

Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
“At the top rung of the system (in reputation, at least) are the Ivy League colleges, which have long been diploma mills producing legions of dumbasses, schemers, and charlatans by the bushel, every graduated brain stuffed with the irrational ravings of select madmen and emptied of any shred of humility. Chock full of an insatiable urge to "plan" and the ignorant arrogance to see it through, they are released upon humanity like a viral plaque to assume their rightful positions of leadership, forever after to blunder the world into one disaster or another.

From Princeton graduate Woodrow Wilson, who gave us World War One, the War on Drugs, and the income tax, to Yale and Harvard product George W. Bush, who gave us Iraq, Afghanistan, the Patriot Act, and turned America into a pervasive surveillance society, the mark of the Ivy League graduate has been nothing but bloodshed and fields filled with skull and bones, corruption of the idea of education, and a vast wasting of wealth and liberty."
C.J. Maloney

“People with varied interests quickly discover the advantages of organizing themselves into groups to lobby the state for these apparent benefits. Ego-boundary identities have proven themselves an effective means of promoting collective ends. Race, religion, ideology, economic interests, ethnicity, lifestyle, age, nationality, provide just a handful of grounds upon which to organize mass movements. Those to be organized into such groupings, as well as those who control the machinery of the state, develop a symbiotic relationship in the perpetuation of the political process.”
Butler Shaffer

“Obama is misreading the election returns. When America voted to cancel the White House lease of Mr. Bush, it did not vote Barack Obama a blank check.”
Patrick J. Buchanan

"You shouldn't always submit to authority. Our country wouldn't exist if everyone submitted to authority."
Tim Masters, after DNA evidence forced the State of Colorado to overturn his conviction for murder and free him after 20 years in prison.

“However laborious or far-fetched, the sheeple prefer to excuse rather than indict their god, the State."
Becky Akers

“While one often hears about shootings in churches, one never hears about shootings at gun shows. I wonder why.”
Jacob Hornberger

“In practically every jurisdiction in this once-free land, it is a ‘criminal offense"’ -- and often a felony -- to disarm a ‘peace officer.’ Why isn't it a crime to disarm a law-abiding citizen?”
Will Grigg

“It is an unfortunate fact that people of faith still seem to be more interested in being like other nations or in having someone fight their battles for them than they are in self-governance. Much like God promised the Israelites, we have taxes taken from us at gun point, we have seen our children conscripted, we have idly watched as government has stolen land in the name of eminent domain. And yet people of faith continue to participate in the very system that goes against the original desire for self-governance established by their own holy book. Made in the image of God, endowed with a free will, and guided by freely chosen principles, we have no need of a king.”
Lane Connelly

“The right to question the government, even from a mistaken point of view, is at the heart of America's proud heritage. When America relinquishes this understanding, it comes to adopt the features of the supposed enemy. In the name of rooting out Communists, America became just a bit more communistic. In an effort to keep an eye on violent extremists, the government resorts to violence and extremism. All the labor agitators, Muslim sympathizers and militia groups put together can never threaten American freedom and security as much as an unleashed police state in a climate of fear.”
Anthony Gregory

“Capitalism is a law established by God, just like gravity. Its foundation is in the 9th Commandment, ‘Thou shalt not covet.’ I am never free to desire to take what is my neighbor's. Not his wife. Not his house. Not his lands. Not his possessions. I can trade him for them if I have something he wants more than what he has. (Except his wife, of course...) I can buy them from him if my offer is right. But I cannot steal (or vote) away his property into my account. That is not wealth creation; it is merely re-distribution. God condemns it, and He will not be mocked by those who think that they can make socialism fly forever.”
Bill Jenkins

“As a kid, I used to fantasize about Monopoly money being real and mine for the taking. As an adult, I find that this fantasy is now a necessary prerequisite for political office.”
Jack Hunter

“How much stranger that for money we’ve chosen an unmeasurable paper standard. We measure anything and everything. People have even tried to figure out if a human soul has weight, but for money, of all things, we’d rather pretend?”
Les Lefave
From the Darkness:
"'Just say no' is the right advice to give your teenagers about drugs. It is not an acceptable response to whatever economic policies are proposed by the other party."
Barry Obama

"The U.S. gun market not only makes gun trafficking in military-style weapons easy, it practically compels that traffic because of the gun market's loose regulations and the gun industry's ruthless design choices over the last several decades."
Tom Diaz, senior policy analyst at the Violence Policy Center

"Our officers will give direct orders or commands to passengers. It is the obligation of the passenger to be compliant with those."
Mike Milne, spokesdrone for the Customs and Border Protection (CPB) agency.

"We have to continue managing our business as a business -- taking account of the cold realities of competition."
AIG chief executive, Edward Liddy, defending the company’s bonuses. [If you were truly accountable to the “cold realties of competition” you would be justifiably bankrupt and out of business!]

"We must find ways to relieve some of this stress."
Gen. Peter W. Chiarelli, vice chief of staff of the Army, in testimony before the Senate Armed Services Military Personnel Subcommittee, addressing the problem of increased military suicides.
[Perhaps this can occur if the state would lose its lust for blood and booty.]
“The depression has ended.”
Dr. Julius Klein, Assistant Secretary of Commerce

"But if President Obama doesn’t lose his nerve, the odds are that a classic counterinsurgency strategy, supported by adequate troop levels, can turn around another failing war effort."
Max Boot, on Obama’s plan to escalate the war in Afghanistan.

Light Flashes

Family gathers at bedside of actress Natasha Richardson

If only the government would pass more laws, bad things like this would cease to occur. Obviously, the skiing industry has been deregulated for too long without sufficient oversight by our government protectors.

A Department of Skiing Safety should be created, post-haste. Perhaps, a Ski Safety Czar should also be appointed. Tragedies such as this should not be tolerated.

For God’s sake, Mr. Obama, DO something!

$72K repaid to Mesquite for NYC trips

Corruption is an inherent characteristic of government. It’s the nature of the beast.

People should fight back by NOT voting and participating in the state’s sham elections.

When you vote you give legitimacy to an inherently corrupt institution that claims ownership of your life.

Bush refuses to criticize Obama in Canada

Why should he criticize him? Obama is continuing the policies of war, destruction, national bankruptcy (which he has raised several notches), corporate bailouts, torture, and spying that Bush initiated.

Monkey see, monkey do.

Dallas shopping mall seeks financial aid

Watch all the little piggys suckle on the Federal teat.Looking for a hand out and a bail out has become the new American Way. Pathetic.

If the mall has attracted two “potential buyers” why is it seeking stolen money?

Bailout money goes to firms with unpaid taxes

Government crooks helping banking and corporate crooks. Plundering one party to enrich another is a founding principle of the state. It’s a primary reason why the institution exists.

When the crime is exposed, the politi-gangsters feign mock surprise and disgust so as not to tip off their clueless constituency of their complicity- and participation in- the crime.

The timeless racket of state pillage continues due to the extraordinary talent the state has of cloaking their crimes beneath a disguise of apparent benevolence and compassion.

Master Obama is a true artist at this kind of deception and sleight of hand.

Our Neighbor: Patriot Paws

Please! Spare us the continuing myth that these confused soldier boys “fight for our freedom.” They fight for, and take orders from, the ruling regime.

If they truly are “fighting for your (my) freedom,” they are doing a pretty lousy job. I’m becoming less free every day- thanks to the ruling regime they work for, take orders from, and get paid by.

If they were truly “fighting for my freedom” they would be actively defending the US Constitution, as they took an oath to do. Instead, they openly spit on it by defending an outlaw regime and participating in illegal, unconstitutional wars.
If these soldier boys were truly “fighting for your (my) freedom,” they would be busy vacating the halls of, and padlocking the doors of, the heinous District of Criminals!

Documents raise more HOV safety concerns

Government roads are designed to satisfy the social engineers, not drivers. If this costs a few lives, the state will always justify this tragedy as a necessary cost- just as it justifies killing thousands of Iraqis in order to “free them.”

Privately built and owned roads are built to satisfy the customer and his requirements for speed, efficiency and safety.

Which type of road would YOU rather drive on?

Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
“Government, when it is examined, turns out to be nothing more nor less than a group of fallible men with the political force to act as though they were infallible. Remove the political force and these same men would be as ordinary and as reasonable as any of us.”
Robert LeFevre

“To conflate the work of Christ with the work of worldly politics is to miss the meaning of His life, death, and resurrection. To claim that a Christian must vote for a specific policy or politician, that Christians must use government to enforce our morals – to prohibit bad behavior or to force good behavior – is to reduce the work of Christ to the work of a politician. He is not too weak or insignificant for political battles; political battles are too weak and insignificant for Him. The kind of freedom and righteousness He offers is far too great, too personal, to be advanced by physical force (which all politics boils down to); politics is beneath the spiritual life, not above it.”
Isaac M. Morehouse

“I for one do not want live in a world in which I have to pay for someone else's mistakes. I don't want to live in a world in which the government has a claim on my property before I do. I don't want to live in a world in which the government determines that the environment takes precedence over my life. I don't want to live in a world in which free speech is protected, yet I have to be afraid that everything I say is "politically correct." Most of all, I don't want to live in a world in which the rights of the smallest and most important minority, THE INDIVIDUAL, are sacrificed to the mob for the public good.”
Benjamin Weingarten

“As somebody who considers the State to be nothing more than a criminal syndicate pursuing a monopoly, I consider sedition to be a fine and noble calling worthy of all decent and Godly people. But statists of the conservative stripe engage in purely situational sedition: They want to undermine our present crop of rulers in order to replace them, not to abolish State impositions on liberty.”
Will Grigg

“Capitalism is not a collection of nuts and bolts, gears and switches. Instead, it is a moral 'system.' 'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,' is all you need to know about it.And like any moral 'system,' it rarely gives the capitalists what they hope for...or what they want. It gives them what they deserve. And right now, it's giving it to them good and hard.”
Bill Bonner

From the Darkness:
"Putting the ban back in place would not only be a positive move by the United States, it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico, which is struggling with heavy violence among drug cartels along the border. I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum."
US Attorney General, Eric Holder, advocating the introduction of a new Assault Weapons Ban.

“He had an AK-47 in his hand and was trying to get away. If he were innocent, he would have sat there.”
Army Major Todd Polk, justifying killing an Afghan “terrorist” during a US raid.

“Five percent of the Taliban is incorrigible, not susceptible to anything other than being defeated. Another 25 percent or so are not quite sure, in my view, of the intensity of their commitment to the insurgency. Roughly 70 percent are involved because of the money.”
Joe Biden

“It is from this same area that al-Qaeda and its extremist allies are regenerating and conceiving new atrocities to visit upon us.”
Joe Biden, referring to Afghanistan and Pakistan. [Yep, more spectacular attacks planned and executed from caves.]

“Because my attitude is that if we capture an enemy combatant in the battlefield -- or we can use Osama bin Laden -- who may have information about a pending attack. You know what, I don't have any problem taking his head sticking it underwater and scaring the living daylights out of him and making him think we're drowning him, and I'm a Christian."
Sean Hannity
