… and you don’t believe in natural rights.

Ok … let’s ask some questions which may even seem silly at first, but which, in the asking, will clear away some of the unhappy vagueness we tend to live with out of social politeness or the fear of seeming too radical.

So:

Do you have, let’s say, a right to breathe? If so, where does this “right” come from? An act of Congress?

Do you have a right to be served by others? If so;

Do they have a right to be served by you? If so;

Do they have a right to serve themselves by not serving you?

The questions are too general or abstract or silly or provocative you say? And anyway, it all depends, you say? Alright then, “it all depends”.

In hopes of making some kind of progress, let’s wave away any…

YOU MAY BE A PROTECTED CLASS

Suppose we lose the election in 2014, and then again in 2016.  This would lock in the hopeless change for years to come, maybe forever. It would guarantee this new post modern age of bureaucratic incompetence and statism. Do not lose heart. When God closes a door he leaves a window unlocked.  Capitalism is an elemental fact of life, like combustion, like gravity. It might not be the best future, but capitalism in some form surfaces and may still rule the day. Consider two cottage industries of the government that have flourished under the captivity: grant administration and tax preparation services.

Grant administration companies navigate the many and myriad pathways of obtaining government grants, overseeing the paperwork when you get the grant—capitalism moves from competing markets to competing for grants. Less efficient: you want your brainpower solving problems not filing papers, it is a diluted capitalism but it is therr and is a growing industry.

Tax preparation services are everywhere, and bound to grow. We compete for deductions instead of stuff that is productive, like making something—but when you are given lemons, be the guy or gal with the lemonade stand.

I have a business I am thinking of starting. Please let me know what you think, (and how much you want to invest.) The rest of  this post could be converted into a radio spot with testimonials from all of the success stories. I would call it:
ProtectedClass.com.
I would help you certify and find all of the ways in which you may be a protected class, like the following:

SEXUAL ORIENTATION

So you are a man who loves women. Why go through life as an underprivileged heterosexual, when we can certify you as a gay lesbian? You are a woman trapped in a man’s body who loves women: no life style changes needed, but all the advantages of being a protected class. Having trouble at work? The threat of a lawsuit may keep you employed until retirement.

NATIVE AMERICAN

We can help you explore your American Indian roots. Like most Americans, there are big holes in your family tree. Our researchers can fill them with dead Indians. Have you heard of the legendary wandering tribe, the one that visited Western Europe? Your ancestors not coming to the USA before the 1800′s may only be a minor logistical problem we could explain away.

MINORITY STATUS

Just because you may have blonde hair, blue eyes and think of yourself as white does not mean that you are not technically a minority for government purposes.  Thanks to the human genome project, we can compare a sample of your DNA to others and prove that you are a unique class that should be protected.

DISABILITY

Let the world know what is wrong with you;)
If every third kid can have ADD or ADHD, our doctors are guaranteed to find something wrong with you. Are you a conservative? A Christian? Do you believe in absolute truth? The government may give you credit for being brain damaged.

ILLEGAL ALIEN

We have an arrangement with a small Caribbean island country where we can grant you citizenship of their nation from your easy chair. You can keep your job and not pay taxes. Yes, you to can be an undocumented worker, get free healthcare, and have a world of programs funded by others opened to you.

Yes, we can document you being undocumented.

The NSA won’t even know you.

I am danger to the current government. I am danger to the statists. I am all in against the statists, even if we happen to share an ideology or belief—if you want to use the force of the state to make someone not supersize their soft drink, I side with a person with poor nutritional habits. I am danger not because I am powerful, or even all that influential—but because I will not relent. I am a pain in the ass that will not go away, and, well— I am not alone. There are many of us. There is an information advantage to the truth. A million voices can speak it in perfect harmony without conferring.   This is the advantage of liberty over collectivism. They need a central body to coordinate the lie. We will win. The only question: what will it cost?

I am an “Anonymous” sympathizer. You know the group: they call themselves a collective and have the slogan:

We are Anonymous. 
We are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget. 
Expect us.

I am not anonymous. I am danger. I am out there, and my name isn’t that hard to find behind my internet handle, and it is not because I don’t have skills. I like it that way. Like John Hancock making the first large and extremely legible signature on the Declaration of Independence, I want to confront the demons head on. Treading lightly is not my way. Folks like me are legion, but we would spit in your eye if you called us a collective—we are all independent thinkers who act together. I forgive. I am a Christian. I don’t forget. I suspect some pagan people think of forgiving and forgetting as the same thing. I may forgive the murdering rapist, I may lead him to Christ and save him from hell, but I would happily put the needle in his arm to administer the capital punishment required so justice is served. You don’t need to expect me, I am here, fighting the lies most every day, puzzling over new ways to extend my reach and spoil a statists free lunch.

When I first started blogging I was intimidated by all of the blogs out there, all of the “competition.” I now understand it differently. If someone gets the message and votes to impeach the village idiot Obama because he read someone elses’s blog, I am just as happy.

I am planning to expand my efforts to network with other bloggers, in an effort to get the job done. I may reblog more. I am pondering how best to get common sense to be more common.

A closing word on common sense. It is common sense to a pilot in a dive to fly straight into the ground, due to vertigo– that is why they have instruments. People caught in avalanche’s in the snow dig furiously to get out before they sufficate, often digging further down—that is why they are taught to clear a pocket around their face and spit– see which way it falls so you know which way is up.

Liberals are not dumb. They seem like it. They seem like they lack common sense. I believe we communicate that one orienting fact in the right way, we can get them out of their nose dive or digging for daylight.  I am danger to the lie.

The below linked article by Mark Davis is brilliant. He makes one bold, common sense statement I want to highlight for you because, well, common sense is so uncommon.

He mentions that the boundaries of the 1967 war should have been enforced ever since because– Israel won the war!  There is no such thing as Palestine.

News flash: the American Indians lost too.

We won the war on Iraq. I lost faith at Fallujah, when we let the terrorists escape. We should have levelled the place. It should be the eighth wonder of the world, the largest parking lot. We should have reparations for having to invade them, it should be our oil now.

We have come a long way with defeating racism in this country.  People of all races are harmed in ways they don’t see by not having friends of all races. Sounds dumb? Touchy feely? Bear with me. Ebony and Ivory in perfect harmony— but we have an ebony church and a lily white church when we worship the same God on Sundays. We don’t hang out. There are conversations we don’t have. I was in the military—centuries ahead of anyone in racial integration because it needs to be a meritocracy. My high school was racially integrated because it was a magnet school, and people came from all over to go to it. My biggest and most eye opening experience was when I had a mere taste of what it was like to be a minority. Let me paint you a picture:

I am in a high school with a mediocre swimming program. I have talent but I’m not Michael Phelps, I am good enough if I work hard I can find a college that would pay tuition to have me swim. Mom and Dad told me the only way I am going to college is on scholarship. I need to find a good AAU team with which to train if I want to get a scholarship so I can go to a college. I live in the inner city, South Philly. All of the good teams are in the suburbs—where the nice facilities are, where every high school has a pool, tennis courts and an occasional golf course. That is, every team except one—-but there is a catch.

More shootings occurred at Broad and Hunting Park than anywhere else in Philly. This is because of the projects. In an urban renewal effort, part of the projects were demolished and a state of the art swimming facility was installed two blocks west. It is where the team swims.

I was the only white kid on an African American swim team. You may have heard about this team. Years before my time, the creation of the team was a storied Herculean effort by one driven great man. It was hard because of, among other challenges, the myth. The team won a championship. Bernie Mac starred in a movie about it called “Pride.”

THE MYTH

Some may say there are many racial myths, I would say there is just one: that racial differences matter when it comes to ability. “White men can’t jump” for example. The form of the myth I am speaking about, the idea that black people can’t swim.

This was a good team. I barely kept up despite my “whiteness.” With the training I got from this team  I did win a swimming scholarship, but not to a school I wanted to attend. I eventually went to college with an academic scholarship through the navy.

The myth comes from people making bad assumptions. It seems obvious that there aren’t more black swimmers because there are not facilities where black people live, and there aren’t many black swimming role models. There are plenty of basketball hoops though. Ethiopia produces many marathon runners, but not many skii jumpers—-imagine that. It seems obvious, but the myth continues. It is a damaging myth. It is the myth behind the “master race” and final solution of the Nazi’s and white supremists, behind Planned Parenthood, slavery, and modern liberalism. Why does the myth continue?

THE BUS RIDE

There is  sense in which I placed out of high school swimming and swam in college while in high school. My AAU high school swimming team had meets with small colleges, and usually won. I attended one away meet, with Howard University.

Let me set the scene. I arrive at 5am on a saturday morning, ride the bus 3 hours to Washington DC, have an all day swimming meet with an African American college, ride back. The whole time, as one of my swimming buddies put it, I am “a spark in the night.”  I didn’t grasp at the time what a life changing, formative experience this would be— and nothing earth shattering really happened, just doing life together. It is hard to put a handle on it, just a million little things:

–music played and everybody danced. When I danced “Wow white people dance too” I heard. I am awful, but it didn’t matter— It helped that I had a certain naive quality where I didn’t know I was awful. I asked if they really thought white people didn’t dance, they said that they thought white people worked and studied all the time. Some one tried to teach me how to “pop,” the name of the dance at the time.  I sure was entertaining to watch, I was the center of attention. We laughed and laughed. It occurred to me that my black friends did alot better job making me welcome in this 1 day trek into minority status than I and my friends did with black friends who walked that dog every day.

Swimming meets have alot of down time with travel, time between events, and so on. We all brought our school books to do homework. A friend came to me for help on his homework.  I am a math nerd and will spare you the cool stuff we worked on, elementary functions and beginning calculus. The troubling part was my friend didn’t so much need help as he needed confidence. He thought he couldn’t do it himself. He was on the right track and gave up early. He thought this way because that is what other black people he admired told him. He thought I could help him because I was white.  Every time I showed him something it really set him back. He would compliment me, tell me how smart white people were. I got into a bizaare conversation with him where I was the one telling him black people were as smart as white people. You know, ironically, I lost the argument to a smarter kid— who was convinced he was the dumber kid. His argument? If black people weren’t dumber, why did they have so many programs to help them? He had specific examples and it was a long bus ride, but the one that stands out is colleges, as we were both seniors and looking at colleges. He had got admitted to a really good college that had offered him alot of aid because of his race. He thought he should go to a black college with much lower academic standards, because he reasoned  there is no way he could make it at a white college.

OJ SIMPSON AND O BAMA

The myth has prevailed, and has damaged the country. The few people affirmative action has temporarily helped has been at the expense of, as Bernie Mac’s movie calls it, “Pride”
It has put every person of color in an assumed inferior status.

There is something about the OJ Simpson case most white people never learned, despite wall to wall coverage. Most black people knew he was guilty. They thought he deserved special treatment because of the myth.

Obama is a horrible president who does very little good but can do no wrong to some, because of the myth.

MYTHBUSTING

The only affirmative action that will kill the myth is good people taking an affirmative action to step out and get to know on a personal level people of different races. Every government program that provides favoritism to a race is approving that race’s inferiority.

Iam Danger:

Perhaps sanity is contagious, and the USA will follow suit and follow science.

Make no mistake. When people talk about so-called “seperation of church and state” they are hypocrites remove a Bible that.is taught as a belief and replace it witha druid religion that is claimed to be science.

When Obama gets his third term when illegal aliens are allowed to vote and I am assigned a drone strike—- I have a place to emigrate—- legally of course.

On the day the carbon tax is repealed, the bible of global warming cries in the unusual snow:

Once – as the IPA points out - every political leader wanted a carbon tax of some sort, such was the warming hysteria:
