Medical Freedom!

PROJECT MEDICAL FREEDOM: pass this on to everyone you know and post it somewhere every day until it’s no longer necessary. Tell your Senators and Congressmen and anybody else who’ll listen. that America doesn’t need to “replace” Obamacare, once it’s repealed. What America needs (to be great again) is TOTAL SEPARATION OF MEDICINE AND STATE.

Point of Interest

Last week’s protests against Donald Trump’s immigration ban may have distracted you from an important point. If I’m hearing right, and I admit I may not, Immigration officers blew off court orders to not apply Mr. Trump’s executive order to certain immigrants. If I was hearing right this is another example of an attitude shared by many Federal LEO’s that they are above the Constitution.

Even if I’m hearing wrong that attitude still exists. Border Patrol and Immigration claim that you are not “really” in the US and therefor they are not bound by the Constitution in their dealings with you. They are just being a little more blunt about their opinion in this matter and have a somewhat better argument supporting their opinion.

Donald Trump was elected on a wave of discontent with the Establishment. Part of that discontent was the disgust many people feel towards a government that consistently over reaches in its authority. We’ve felt that way with both liberal and conservative Presidents and Congresses in charge.

It is time this issue gets addressed. Mr. Trump can do much towards becoming a decent President by being the man who got Federal law enforcement under the control and acting within the law.

Paying for Tax Cuts?

Watching Fox Business News today there is much discussion about Donald Trump’s forthcoming tax cuts and the subject of how to pay for them. Pay for a tax cut? WTF!!!

Since when does a Tax Cut need to be paid for? Why must a Tax Cut Revenue Neutral? Is it perhaps because the Tax Cut isn’t a Tax Cut at all but simply shifting the tax burden from one sector of the economy to another? A true Tax Cut would of course HAVE to be paid for with a SPENDING CUT. This is something no politician is willing to even discuss.

When you get file your taxes you MAY notice you pay less but that you’re paying more at the gas pump and the grocery checkout lane. And the band played on….

People Power!
[source]

There are 10 kinds of people in the world.
Those who understand binary and those who don’t.

“The truth, indeed, is something that mankind, for some mysterious reason, instinctively dislikes. Every man who tries to tell it is unpopular, and even when, by the sheer strength of his case, he prevails, he is put down as a scoundrel.”—H. L. Mencken

“There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit (debt) expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit (debt) expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved.”—Ludwig von Mises

“I heartily accept the motto,—‘That government is best which governs least;’ and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically. Carried out, it finally amounts to this, which I also believe,—‘That government is best which governs not at all;’ and when men are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which they will have. Government is at best but an expedient; but most governments are usually, and all governments are sometimes, inexpedient.”—Thoreau, Civil Disobedience

News from Texas

Texas Senate Bill 16, eliminating the fee to apply for, replace, or renew a license to carry a handgun is in the State Affairs Committee of the Senate. it has also picked up additional co-authors. If it stays there too long you might want to write the committees members and politely ask they approve it to go to the floor.

Texas House Bill 375, calling for Constitutional Carry, was filed in November and has not even gone to committee. It's getting to be time to press your representatives on this one at least getting to committee.

Texas HB 790, legalizing double edged knives less than 5.5 inches long, is also languishing waiting to go to committee. Given that it was introduced late you may want to wait a bit before writing representatives if this is an issue you are interested in. Last session there was a bill up legalizing all edged weapons but it died at the last possible moment in a stupid manner.

In other news, Buck is bringing out a factory automatic version of its famous 110 Folding Hunter. The Buck Folding Hunter became the folding lockback knife back in the ’60’s and 70’s. “Buck Knife” became the generic term for a folding knife that locked open. Several custom companies and smiths made a bit of money remanufacting 110 Hunters into switchblades. However, this is the first time Buck has offered factory made automatic 110’s.

Buck 110’s earned a reputation as good chore knife for the working man. Most automatics, hell, most of the general run of folders out there are too light to do what the 110 does. Earlier I wrote of the need for a decent working man’s utomatic, I guess a lot of other people, including the folks at Buck, feel the same.

Letter from Tom Knapp

The Libertarian Enterprise is only 22…

…so early onset dementia doesn’t seem a likely explanation for its transformation into an authoritarian pro-Trump rag.

That leaves 1) some really bad drugs or 2) a not very well done attempt at satire.

If you guys can’t or won’t stop shitting all over yourselves in public could you at LEAST change the name so as stop smearing that particular variety of feces all over the libertarian movement too?

Best regards, Thomas L. Knapp

[ Silly Rabbit! Being NOT anti-Trump is not the same thing as being pro-Trump. We wait and see, being rational and in favor of the truth. You should try it sometime. It’s also called being polite. You should try it sometime.—Editor ]
