Sunday Musings

Courtesy of Matt Walsh, and it's a good one.  You need to read the whole post, but this one simple sentence really boils down the whole "health care is a right" argument.

YOU DON’T HAVE A RIGHT TO A PRODUCT THAT MUST BE PROVIDED TO YOU THROUGH GOVERNMENTAL COERCION OF A THIRD PARTY.

This is the whole kit and kaboodle of the "rights" argument.  A right can only be a right if nobody else has to provide it.  The moment you make a claim to a "right" that someone else is forced to provide, either through goods, services or money, you are claiming that you can make that person your slave, because your "right" to whatever it is, be it health care, contraception, or food, is more important than that person's freedom to do as they wish with their goods, services or money.

This is why I call the pro-Obamacare people slavers.  They want to make slaves out of everyone, in order to provide "health care" to folks in order to harvest their votes.

Ragin' Dave's Quote of the Day, Never Back Down edition

From the comments at Vox Day:

We're often told that an institution -- the Catholic Church, the Republican Party, now Mozilla -- must compromise with liberals or perish. It's a lie. The perishing is a result of the compromise, not the alternative to it.

The Left does not want compromise, period.  The Left wants you to shut up and be a good slave that doesn't start any trouble.  You cannot compromise with a Leftist, because their default position is that you are nothing more than a revenue-generating slave, not an individual.  You are not a person, you are a number.  You are not a living, breathing human being, you are just another pawn to be used to buy votes with and keep the Free Shit Army happy.

Never compromise with a Leftist.  Never, ever, ever.  Your life will not improve through this compromise, and everyone's life around you will become less..... 

This should be required reading

The Unified Field Theory of Madness

Have your kids sit down and read it.  If they can't understand it, they're probably either too young or they've been in the publik skool sistim too long.

The theory must explain, first, the honest decency of the modern liberals combined with their astonishing indifference, nay, hostility to facts, common sense, and evidence; second, it must explain their high self-esteem (or, to be blunt, their pathological narcissism) combined not merely with an utter lack of accomplishment, but with their utter devotion to destructiveness, a yearning to ruin everything they touch; third, it must explain their sanctimoniousness combined with their applause, praise, support, and tireless efforts to spread all perversions (especially sexual), moral decay, vulgarity, and every form of desecration; fourth, their pretense of intellectual superiority combined with their notorious mental fecklessness; fifth, it must explain both their violence and their pacifism; sixth, the theory must explain why they hate the very things they should love most; seventh, the theory must explain why they are incapable of comprehending an honest disagreement or any honorable foe.

I honestly wish I had read this long before I started blogging.  This essay explains pretty much every liberal area I've ever lived, and why they always turn into crapholes of idiocy and failure.

The Leftist has only two choices here: accept reality, in which case he is no longer a Leftist, or deny reality, in which case his loyalty to the ideals of Leftism becomes rarefied and refined, and he become of their Cathari, the Pure Ones, an arhat of enlightenment.

I spoke above of the Unreality Principle. Here is where it comes into play. The Unreality Principle is the moral imperative to ignore and deny reality at all costs, and remain loyal and faithful to the consensus-made make-believe illusion-choked funhouse-mirror Wonderland of Liberal Bullshit. You must bathe in the bullshit, eat the bullshit, drink the bullshit, and stuff the bullshit up your nose as far as far can be, because from now own the offal will be feast and wine to you, and will be your baptism and your oxygen. It will feed and sustain you.

However, the Unreality Principle demands a cost. First, there is something like a daily maintenance cost: you must attend closely to whatever the social cues are telling you, and believe them and not your lying eyes. 

 Read the whole thing.  It'll be a good start to your day.

Home Again, Home Again

Jiggity-Jig.  Sorry bout the lack of postings; I had no idea I was going to be pretty much running from the moment my feet hit the ground to the point where I got back on the plane.  Time was short, to say the least.  And now I get to try to catch up, as well as do all the work I couldn't do because I was too busy hauling ass on a bunch of make-work bullshit set up by higher.

So yeah, give me a bit to see just what the world's been doing.

Boom

Thank God that states are waking up.

On Thursday, Idaho Governor Butch Otter (R) signed a bill, which would effectively nullify future federal gun laws, by prohibiting state enforcement of any future federal act relating to personal firearms, a firearm accessories or ammunition.

S1332 passed the house by a vote of 68-0 and the senate by a vote of 34-0. Alaska and Kansas have also passed similar laws.

Erich Pratt, Director of Communications for Gun Owners of America, cheered the governor’s action. “By signing this nullification bill into law, Idaho has joined an elite class of states that are telling the feds to ‘get lost’ — especially when it comes to unconstitutional gun control infringements”

Emphasis mine.

It's time for the States to tell the FedGov to piss up a rope.  Enough is enough.
