“Mommycrats” and “Daddylicans” – Kent McManigal

From KentForLiberty:

I think that, at least when I consider each half of the National Socialist Part separately, instead of thinking of them as “Democrats” and “Republicans”, I will think of them as the “Mommycrats” and the “Daddylicans”.  (I’m sure someone else has come up with those names before; they are too self-evident.)

Yeah, that last one sounds a little naughty, but compared to the actions of those in the party… well, I don’t think there’s anyway to make them sound worse than they are.

Anyway, the new names reflect their approach to controlling you.

Mommycrats go about it like an insane mother.

You are a baby, no matter your age, and you need constant care so you don’t get a booboo.  And so you don’t hurt your sister.  Of course, you shouldn’t pick up pointy things, or touch anything that involves fire.  Eat your veggies and … say, aren’t you getting a little fat?  No more soft drinks for you!  And, if you misbehave, just wait til your father gets home!”  (Because Mommycrats are pretty happy to let Daddylicans punish you, as long as the punishment doesn’t go too far.)

Daddylicans embrace the way of the sick father.

You are an idiot child.  You are lazy and evil, and it is up to me to beat some sense into your empty skull.  You WILL respect me.  You WILL sit there in church and keep your disgusting mouth shut no matter how irrational the message is- and don’t even consider any other message!  You will respect the family traditions and not question whether what I tell you is true.  It is truer than true because I say so.  Everyone out there is out to get you, and only I can stop them.  Buck up.  It’s not your lot to be happy- it is your responsibility to do as I say.

Of course, they often join forces to control those of us who grew up to see that we don’t need a life-long control-freak “parent”.

Man Crushed by Road Flattening Truck On Orders of Chinese Officials

From Info Wars:

Villager attempted to resist forced government relocation

A villager in northern China attempting to resist a forced government relocation by remaining on his land was brutally crushed to death by a road flattening truck on the orders of a Chinese government official.

The story, which was censored in China’s state controlled media, has caused outrage amongst users of Weibo, the Chinese version of Twitter, given it’s horrifying similarity to what happened to student protesters who were crushed to death by tanks during the Tiananmen Square protests in 1989.

The victim, He Zhi Hua, refused to accept a paltry payment from the government which has forcefully evicted Changsha Village locals in order to re-appropriate their land for commercial use.

When Hua began a protest by lying down on the spot through which construction vehicles had to pass, the local Vice Mayor ordered workers for the state-owned company to murder Hua by driving over his body with a huge road-flattening truck.

Shocking images show Hua’s pulverized brains and his mangled body in the aftermath of the state-sponsored execution.

Fearing unrest if the story got out to a wider audience, the government sent in 200 men to keep angry locals at bay and hide the remains of the body. The man’s family was offered a sum of money in order to keep quiet about the incident.

China is routinely rocked by riots staged by residents furious at the arbitrary theft of their land by the state, which under the Communist system claims that the government owns all land and that private property rights are non-existent. However, the state-owned media ensures that news of the protests does not reach a national audience.

In another similar case in Pan Jin City, when villager Wang Shi Jie tried to prevent workers hired by local government officials destroying his crops and confiscating his land before harvest, he was shot dead. When Jie’s father attempted to rush to his son’s aid, he was shot in the leg twice.

After the incident, hundreds of police officers were sent to dispose of the body and beat up villagers who complained about the man’s murder. The dispute started after it emerged that the agricultural land was being sold by the government to developers without the villagers having been notified.

Hua’s and Jie’s brave efforts in standing up to the savage Communist Party officials also brings to mind the courageous actions of Wang Weilin – otherwise known as ‘Tank Man’ or ‘The Unknown Rebel’. Weilin blocked the path of a column of Chinese tanks the morning after the Tiananmen Square massacre – footage that has become an iconic representation of the individual standing up against an oppressive state.

Property Taxes – Kent McManigal

From Kent McManigal:

Property taxes

By the time I was around 10 years old I had already developed a sense that I wanted a cabin in the mountains where I would hunt and gather my own food, make my own buckskin clothes, and just be left alone to live as I wanted (much to the eternal distress of my conventional parents).

I had it all figured out … until my parents informed me that if I didn’t pay “property tax” on the land the government would take it away from me.

Even at that age, I knew that this was ridiculous and wrong. If you own something, you OWN it. You don’t have to pay a yearly ransom to keep it!I think “property tax” is fundamentally more evil than other “taxes“. ALL “taxes” are theft-by-government at gunpoint and not justifiable, but “property tax” raises the bar for evil. And those stolen dollars are used to fund the despicable government indoctrination system.
Consider this: If you do not want to pay “sales tax” you could theoretically barter and trade for all the goods that you couldn’t produce for yourself.
Hate the “income tax”? Do what I did and reduce your income to zero (or barely above that).
But how to have a HOME and not have “property tax”? Some people claim you can avoid “property taxes” by renting. I think they are wrong. You could rent, but even then the landlord has to include the cost of the “property tax” into the rent, or he loses money- and will probably ultimately lose the house and you’ll still be out of a home. To really avoid “property taxes” you could be a squatter, or you could be a “permanent tourist”. These strategies work for some people but have their own risks and problems.
Unfortunately the desire to have a homestead is one of the strongest urges for humans. We are very territorial creatures. Governments exploit this basic human desire because they are allowed to.

Street Libertarians Handle the Police

From EPJ:

The clip below shows a police stop in East Providence, Rhode Island. It shows again what I have stated before, if you know the law, it is pretty easy to intimidate most police. Most police are first and foremost concerned about their jobs. This isn’t 100%, some coppers may try to smack you anyway, but most are thinking about their careers when being confronted by someone who appears to know something about the law. They are going to be very careful in what they attempt.

It is really mental kung fu magic. It’s time to memorize the Constitution.

Further, it is interesting to note the concern of one officer with regard to the cell phone taping of the stop. If there is one new type of law that libertarians should be concerned about, it is any law put on the books that prevents the filming of police activity, such as the law they attempted to use to stop cellphone recording of police activity in Illinois. These laws need to be stopped,

Recordings of police activities are the great leveler.

It is also interesting to note in this clip that at one point one of the cops states that there aren’t going to be any police pensions in five years—in other words, the public, even coppers, are really scared about what’s coming down the economic road.
