Different Floors of the House

You wanna fight? Game on.

They'll just come up with some snarky derogatory terms for you Ilya. They'll call you an imperialist Jew, they'll call you a racist homophobe. They'll call you all the "idiot" names in their arsenal. They won't debate you Ilya. They can't afford to lose this in the court of their own public opinion--let alone pay your travel expenses...

In related news there's that doctor down in Florida who hung this sign outside his office:

Now that is the type of debate I can go for.  And btw, the Orlando Sentinel took a poll asking whether or not this doctor is doing the right thing, here are the results as of 2:25 Pacific:

Poll: OK for doctor to protest health-care bill by shunning Obama voters?

Lake County urologist Dr. Jack Cassell has put up a sign on his office door reading, "If you voted for Obama seek urologic care elsewhere." What do you think?
What is your reaction to Dr. Jack Cassell's actions?
  • Good for him. Obamacare will be a disaster, and we should keep fighting it. (37461 responses)
  • 83%                                                                                                              
  • Get over it, Doc. Health-care reform was badly needed, and this is just more sour grapes from the GOP. (2528 responses)
  • 6% 
  • Prescription for trouble. No matter what you think of the health-care overhaul, doctors should not impose their political views on patients. (5175 responses)
  • 11%

Looks like both the courts of public opinion and the courts of law are going to have a hey day with this.

Libertarian Twitter Groups

Here is a website dedicated to Twitter hashtags (#) for Libertarians.  Since I'm new to Twitter I was looking around for some popular ones.  Check it out. I'll try to figure a place on this site for this kind of stuff.  Maybe.

When Anarchists Attack! (Snark Attack Alert!)

Donny: Are these the Nazis, Walter?
Walter Sobchak: No, Donny, these men are nihilists, there's nothing to be afraid of.

Tabitha Hale, the almighty righty blogger at RedState, has a hale and tabby response to the hail of tabloidesque posts on FaceCrack regarding all these silly anarchists who are threatening to crash April 15th Tea Parties nationwide.

Ooh, we're so scared.  Scared like the U.S. is scared of a British Columbian invasion.  Please don't hurt me with your...uh...menacing-ish stare.

I loves me some o' dat Tabitha Hale-you-go-girl-power-to the-tread-not-ish-type-stuff.  And I bounce on over to the Yogi-to-Redstate's-BooBoo, HumanEvents almost daily.  The Facebook responses are another matter entirely.  Right-minded folks are actually seriously thinking these anarchists will show up on April 15th blasting horns, banging drums and spreading their smells-like-teen-halitosis drivel.  Maybe.  Not.

These would be nabe kabombs, these unwashed-upper-middle-class-denizens-of-Moronland, these spoiled brat-tards with the black fingernails with the happy-napster hair dyed blacker than Nick Gillespie's are just foolish little twats on too much political drug de jour.  (Sorry Nick, I'm a fan, but the Just for Vampires look has gtg.)

In short, for those of the wee attention span:  These men are nihilists, they believe in nothing.

Tabitha points out what I mentioned on Facebook yesterday:  They are ANARCHISTS!  They don't have any business fighting against a group of people trying to limit the nanny-state fascism this country's leaders have inundated us with for seventy-plus years.

So Tabitha gets it right.  And those people freakin' out on Facebook and Twitter are just another example of the right's need-a-crisis-to-get-me-off-my-ass nitwitliness.  Are you seriously concerning yourselves to the point of stress-induced coronary about these fuckwads?  They are the hippiecrytes we've been making fun of over here in Libertarian land for decades.  They believe in nothing, they know nothing, they are nothing.

Fuck it dude, let's go bowling.

The Tenacity of Love

I hear you hate Christians and libertarians and balanced budgets and fiscal responsibility and white people and guns and heroes and hyperbole and prejudice and private property and Jesus and Gandhi and little furry kittens and honesty in reporting and actual peer-reviewed research and apple pie and unproven allegations and baseball and yourself.

But this Christian libertarian proponent of balanced budgets and fiscal responsibility is white and has heroes who wield firearms when necessary to protect private property from the prejudiced hyperbolic killers of little furry kittens and actively seeks proof of allegations and honesty in both reporting and scientific research even when it comes to Jesus and Gandhi who both would have loved baseball and apple pie and yes, even  you.  As I love you.

 I do.

 I love you.

That is all.

Oedipus in China

Here the sadness that is so, is thus:  Bodies of 21 babies found in China.  And here my day was going by so swimmingly.  I'd been cracking jokes and twittering about the silly comic book adventures of Rick Grimes in zombie land...

I hate the news. 

Do you like Freud? Freud, as in, Sigismund Schlomo.  You know, the guy with all the penis envy and all that crap?

Well, do you?

I'm indifferent.  Except when I'm not.  I think half the things I was forced to read about Freud in college were meant to encourage me to disregard him as a some sex-craved lunatic.  If there is one thing in life I simply cannot disregard...yeah...sex craved lunatics.  And dead babies floating in a river...

Here is Oedipus Rex, if you want to read it.  Freud uses the parable to posit a theory on why boys fight with their fathers and fall in love with their mothers.  And that is what all the lefty professors emphasize:  Daddy killing and Mother...er...loving.  And here is why I disregard Freud's analysis regardless of (in spite of, really) what my college Jungian proselytizers professors told me:

Oedipus was a baby!  He was an abandoned baby!  Enough with killing your father and screwing your mother!  He was a little innocent boy left to die.  All things that happen after that, happen because of that.

I have no idea how those babies got in those plastic bags, in that river, their mother's names still stamped on their admittance bands.  No idea.  And right now, I guess I don't want to know.

That's it.

What's wrong with this picture?

Yeah, o.k., those silly lefties don't like capitalism.  And yeah, they used a naughty word.  Tsk tsk.

But what else is wrong with this picture?
