Not Our Words

Bloomberg's Folly is exploiting victims of criminals with guns again. Yawn.

But they couldn't resist pointing out that the NRA does not speak for them.

Well, the NRA has never claimed to speak for every American. It claims to speak for its millions of dues paying members.

Perhaps the anti-liberty set should apply their distaste with "not our words" to their own house. "MOMentum is building!" announces MOMsanto PR flack Shannon Watts, she who presumes to speak for all mothers. She does not speak for me. And furthermore:

And now everything but the anti-gun comment has been deleted. Surprised, why no.

And then we get told that nothing we have to say matters:

Again, no surprises. The sheer degree of Orwellian double-speak and "some animals are more equal than others" elitist garbage from the anti-liberty opportunists is appalling.

Here's a screen shot of their Exalted Leader's LinkedIn page (except for the arrow, which I added.).

WTH is Thought Leadership? Is that the same thing that Eric Holder publicly touts, i.e. "brainwashing Americans" to get them to relinquish their 2d Amendment rights? Thought Leadership? More like fear mongering and emotional manipulation, with a side order of othering and demonizing their opponents, and censoring any comments that disagree with their party line. Really gives you the warm and fuzzies what some moms stand for.... NOT! And the fact that she's a former corporate shill for Monsanto just adds to her credibility... ALSO NOT!

Ron Paul: This is How Liberty Dies, With Thunderous Applause

As a Libertarian, given current events, the only appropriate post I can
think of making for Star Wars Day (May the Fourth Be With You...) is
the following:

Rebellious Reveille

Call me an extremist if you must, but at least I'm not a sheeple. Here's a little poem I wrote.

Rebellious Reveille

Fat cat politicians with their hands in countless tills
Balancing their budgets by taking away your grandma’s pills.
Next goes mortgage interest and you may just lose your home,
But Congress ain’t concerned from their patrician Capitol Dome.
Yeah, the republic is decaying and the common man is screwed.
The future’s looking scary when through average eyes it’s viewed.
We thought the American Dream trumped Malthusian economics,
But corporate greed and cronyism rendered it plain tragicomic.
It may already be too late to ever reverse the trend
Where we turn out our pockets so our overlords can spend,
But not on social safety nets or finding us a job.
Instead they’ll gladly pay a friend to build a bomb to lob.
And our inconvenient plebian selves that they’ve disenfranchised
Can be quelled as cannon fodder so the over-class survives.
Unless we throw off the chains of our financial servitude
The day will come when none of us has a job, a home or food.
The corporations get the breaks and send the jobs away
They don’t care for our future, just their personal paydays.
They do it in the name of their fiduciary duty,
But take their cut and tank the market, ripping out their booty.
And all our savings drop like rocks right along with the Dow,
Pensions, college dreams destroyed, but not their sacred cow
Of tax cuts for the rich and the corporate uber-class,
While the rest of us just take another boot right in the ass.
They’re threatening the unions and social security
While they maintain their lifestyles most assuredly.
We’re told we must buy health insurance to line their pockets more
So what if we can’t pay the rent with this illusory cure.
They hold up change and progress like it is the holy grail.
Yeah, they succeed and skim the cream and leave us the empty pail.
Wake up my people, look around, and finally take note
The robber barons stole our country and now they can buy the vote.
If we don’t find a way soon to restore our liberty
We’re heading for a cliff and a major tragedy.
Rise up and reject their glib self interested solutions
And don’t accept their profit-driven political prostitution.
By, of, and for the People is what government’s supposed to be.
Let’s find a way to make it so or we’re no longer free!
