Libertarian hockey stick

A little money riding on the Maple Leafs

Speak Softly, and carry a Hockey Stick! Special thanks to Online Curve Fitting

Organized coercion is fond of graphs that indicate growing popularity of a pretext for forcing folks. The hockey stick analogy is by now so overused as to have become an embarrassment to pseudoscientists of the looter persuasion–mainly because it has made no impression whatsoever on thermometers. 

Voters, on the other hand, are deciding–in accelerating numbers–that the initiation of force has had its opportunity to produce results worth having. Entrenched, subsidized Kleptocracy parties are stalled. Unable to attract voters, they successfully depict each other as repellent, dangerous, socially evil. Both such parties depict the Communist Manifesto income tax and the subsidies their electioneering receives from the IRS as necessary and good.

The Libertarian party, as you see, has been growing as in the graph showing the vote shares earned since the Y2k panic and New Millerite Climate Armageddon prophesying craze set in. Based on the last 5 elections, the above amateur sigmoid replacement curve fit suggests a Libertarian majority by 2074. Leveraged spoiler vote clout will meanwhile repeal and pacify much of the violence of law you see whenever the initiation of force is the preferred modus operandi.

No violence needed, and we don’ need no steenkin revolution. Simply cast your vote for the peace and freedom platform and opportunistic politicians will make change happen or be replaced trying to keep pushing aggression and coercion. A small donation couldn’t hurt, and will definitely bear dividends. Increasing freedom is winning!

Libertarian Impersonator False Flag

Laura Ebke?

“Elected” Libertarians?

 

The Anti-Choice movement, coercive by definition, has since 1976 been attempting to infiltrate the Libertarian Party in a belated effort to defeat the Roe v. Wade decision which the Supreme Court copied from the 1972 Libertarian Party Overpopulation plank.

1972 LP plank: “We further support the repeal of all laws restricting voluntary birth control or voluntary termination of pregnancies during their first hundred days.”
Jan 22 1973, Roe v. Wade decision: “(a) For the stage prior to approximately the end of the first trimester, the abortion decision and its effectuation must be left to the medical judgment of the pregnant woman’s attending physician. …”

In the intervening 11 campaigns Prohibitionist Republicans have tried to reinstate coathanger abortions and lost five times, mainly thanks to leftover Soviet anti-energy planks still in the Democratic platform. Since the Bush Asset Forfeiture Crash and Depression, a wave of prohibition repeal not seen since 1932 sweeps the nation, and God’s Own Prohibitionists have come up with a desperate Trojan Horse strategy: Inject an antichoice state legislator into the LP as a faithless defector bearing a package deal of gifts which includes guns pointed at Planned Parenthood physicians. Sound farfetched?

In 1992 a reasonably pro-rights Republican Senator, Arlen “Magic Bullet” Specter, was running for reelection. All of a sudden a coercive male zealot, John Perry, posing as a libertarian, got into the race thanks to dereliction on the part of the Pennsylvania Libertarian Party. The slip is particularly embarrassing since Philadelphia is the cradle of the Liberal Party. That party’s prohibition repeal plank was co-opted by the Democrats in 1932, a move that resulted in Democratic victories in five consecutive elections. Like The Atlantic magazine, the LP showed the male impostor the door. This is ordinary integrity–loyalty to one’s ethical principles.

The cross-dressing Libertarian impersonator elected by Republican votes is Sen. Laura Ebke of Nebraska’s 32nd district. The Greek gifts she bears are deregulation of bribe-dominated professions and partial clemency for persons branded felons by the Kleptocracy for associating with some plant leaves. Ebke’s cold deck is an offer to hand back a tiny portion of the individual rights previously sequestered by God’s Own Prohibitionists, in exchange for Libertarian acceptance of a planted impostor whom Nebraska Libertarians voted against. Here’s the Ram Johnston gunpoint coercion position, complete with misleading label:

Let me state unequivocally my personal positionI am Pro-Life. –Laura Ebke

The set-up has already brought panhandling spam from the LP in support of this Republican bait-and-switch trap. What remains to be seen is whether this particular sting, doubtless patterned after a John Grisham novel (Runaway Jury), will lure innocent Libertarian voters into betraying the individual rights won for women when Toni Nathan and John Hospers placed our platform before the voters and conquered individual rights for women.

One expects the Wall Street Journal to come shilling for Republican infiltrators. But this particular fake libertarian switcheroo has been convincing enough to take in LP fund-raisers and Reason Magazine. Their error, which the predators exploit, is to imagine that we need sitting politicians rather than libertarian spoiler votes in order to strike down bad laws. This red herring bait serves only to reinforce reliance on people, rather than the principles voters expect the party do defend with focussed integrity.

People of Nebraska, don’t fall for it. It’s a set-up! Swap your votes for leveraged Libertarian support in other districts if you can, but do not fall for this desperate false flag maneuver! The Republican/Prohibition Axis of Evil is gulling you to increase its lopsided control over your State by switching in a double for an additional 2%.

If you ever need translations of con games, loaded dice, shapes, misspots, cold decks, marked cards, long cons, rigged roulette wheels, shiners, false cuts, daubing, crimping, holdouts, peeking, palming, middle-card deals, stacking, waving, belly-strippers, pictures, luminous readers and other sharper and grifter hustles, drop me a line.

Texas Libertarian Platform

Our system works in spite of government...

Read it, why dontcha?

Looking over the  candidate application form, the striking thing is “do you agree with the Texas LP platform?” The question is not easy to answer because the platform goes off on nitpicking tangents crammed with unexpanded acronyms. My computer literally died while I was trying to translate the thing.

Rather than lend credibility to Mark Levin and other Republican partisans, the Texas LP could put its own platform on a diet and leverage podcasts to distribute verbatim audio recordings of its content–in Spanish and English. The national platform in Portuguese takes less than half an hour to listen to. That avenue of bilingual outreach is completely unavailable to the Kleptocracy parties, mired as they are in many words and many lies. There is a differentiating advantage to be had there.

Tejas, excuse me, Texas includes a great many voters who feel comfortable with Spanish. A terse, no-nonsense platform written in accordance with Strunk & White’s Elements of Style (Omit needless words!) is easy to translate into Spanish, French Canadian, and maybe even Navajo. But a rambling spray of legalese isn’t.

Four thousand, five hundred twelve words at George Orwell’s BBC standard rate of 150 words a minute does yield 30 minutes, but why so much specific and obscure jargon?  We need to attract candidates so folks can cast spoiler votes to inform the Kleptocracy what sort of things they need to repeal. The platform could be simpler and bring us more candidates is all I’m saying.

If you think clarity isn’t oversimplification, you might appreciate my legal translation and interpreting services.

Do tariffs wreck economies?

Many words and mucho looting

Number of pages in the tariff law

Historians, economists, investors–people in the thrall of government control over the economy–urge us to believe the 1929 Crash was a leper’s bell reaction to the approaching Tariff Act of 1930. But comparison with the previous prohibition-era tariff of 1922 reveals huge differences in search, seizure and asset forfeiture powers for Coast Guard and Customs. There were large increases in tariffs on the corn wet mills made into sugar and the sugar bootleggers converted into moonshine, but not much else.

Sugar and corn tariff of 1922:

SCHEDULE 5.-SUGAR, MOLASSES, AND MANUFACTURES OF.
PAR. 501. Sugars, tank bottoms, sirups of cane juice, melada, concentrated melada, concrete and concentrated molasses, testing by the polariscope not above seventy-five sugar degrees, and all mixtures containing sugar and water, testing by the polariscope above fifty sugar degrees and not above seventy-five sugar degrees, 1&24/100 cents per pound, and for each additional sugar degree shown by the polariscopic test, forty-six one-thousandths of 1 cent per pound additional, and fractions of a degree in proportion. …

PAR. 724. Corn or maize, including cracked corn, 15 cents per bushel of fifty-six pounds; corn grits, meal, and flour, and similar products, 30 cents per one hundred pounds.

Sugar and corn tariff of 1930:

PAR. 501. Sugars, tank bottoms, sirups of cane juice, melada, concentrated melada, concrete and concentrated molasses, testing by the polariscope not above seventy-five sugar degrees, and all mixtures containing sugar and water, testing by the polariscope above fifty sugar degrees and not above seventy-five sugar degrees, 1.7125 cents per pound, and for each additional sugar degree shown by the polariscopic test, three hundred and seventy-five ten-thousandths of 1 cent per pound additional, and fractions of a degree in proportion. …

PAR. 724. Corn or maize, including cracked corn, 25 cents per bushel of fifty-six pounds; corn grits, meal, and flour, and similar products, 50 cents per one hundred pounds.

Tariffs on opium and coca leaf products did not change. 

Europeans, amid the wreckage of another of their opium wars, liquidated stocks when the US pressured Austria and Germany into passing laws against some drugs, including heroin and hemp. European stock markets peaked at about the time the Fifth Amendment was gutted so that bootlegger money could be seized under the income tax. The French stock market peaked in February, 1929, when the Naarden scandal was in the newspapers.

US stock markets followed suit when prosecutor Mabel Willebrandt–whom HL Mencken called “Prohibition’s Portia”–explained these facts about the Fifth Amendment and asset forfeiture confiscation of liquor and drug money in a syndicated column in August and September of 1929. Comprehension dawned as the First Lady of Law gave legal details of how government enforcement transformed wealth into poverty. Those same puritanical prohibition and looter laws caused money to flee banks and brokerages and the economy collapsed.

The Kleptocracy to this day attributes the crash to exaggerated reaction to the tariff, thereby distracting economists and historians from the prohibitionist measures that actually wrecked the economy. Those economy-wrecking measures prompted formation of the Liberal Party for repeal. When writing on economics, it is good practice to separate these variables. The tariff is blamed in order to avoid mentioning something more embarrassing: the sanctimonious asset-forfeiture looting that wrecked the economy and caused the Great Depression–and again in 1987 and again in 2007. Protective tariffs are ungood, but certainly not as dangerous as the communist manifesto income tax injected into the Constitution as “a replacement.”

Conservative mystics also pretend that the protective tariff did NOT cause the Civil War, when they know perfectly well that it did, just as it caused the Nullification Crisis. They then turn around and believe just as fervently that such armed extortion is “good for the economy” in the same way making beer a felony was salutary. Today a bad but impotent tariff of Abominations is blamed for the entire Crash and Depression following use of new tax laws to enforce new prohibition laws. Conservatives worship a mythical dead body invented 150 years after the fact and clothed in imaginary sermons preaching altruism and wielding whips against those who use money.

Surely one does not expect reasoned consistency from these ideologies, but rather, apologias holding their pseudoscientific policies harmless from all blame and liability for ensuing disasters. Ask yourself: have not the noble experiments of 1987 and 2007 given the lie to this superstitious evasion?

Seymour the Superstitious

Tatsuya Ishida’s Sinfest.net

When I was a child, women dressed like penguins told us children gory stories about the Path of Righteousness. This one is relevant to today’s hot topic.

4 And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.

8 And he stood and cried unto the armies of Israel, and said unto them, Why are ye come out to set your battle in array? Am not I a Philistine, and ye servants to Saul? Choose you a man for you, and let him come down to me.

9 If he be able to fight with me, and to kill me, then will we be your servants: but if I prevail against him, and kill him, then shall ye be our servants, and serve us.

10 And the Philistine said, I defy the armies of Israel this day; give me a man, that we may fight together.

11 When Saul and all Israel heard those words of the Philistine, they were dismayed, and greatly afraid.

12 Now David was the son of that Ephrathite of Bethlehemjudah, whose name was Jesse; and he had eight sons: and the man went among men for an old man in the days of Saul.

48 And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came, and drew nigh to meet David, that David hastened, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.

49 And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his eye, that the stone sunk into his eye; and he fell upon his face to the earth.

50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.

51 Therefore David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled.

59 But David was called before the Court, to answer the Philistines complaint he had vanquished by foul means. That one, said counsel for the Plaintiffs, not only drew first blood, but used an illegal basalt eyeful to slay our champion.

60 To this David replied that the challenge was Goliath’s, and that once it is decided that someone is to be killed, the moral question has been settled. The instruments of that killing are not affected by any moral or humane questions or considerations.

61 The Court ruled in favor of Respondent, and David bid goodbye to the uncircumcised Philistines and returned to bed with the King’s daughter. Together they watched a movie on the Burning Bush, titled “Swindler’s List” in which only the Pharaoh and his enforcers had basalt eyefuls.

Moral: better to have a basalt eyeful and not need it, than to need one and not have it.

Translating modern legalese is something I do with ease. Look me up.

Ticking Turing Machines

Why did British codebreakers—Polish codebreakers, actually–call their cipher machines “bombes”?

Background: before National and International Socialism signed the pact agreeing it was OK to invade and dismember Poland, Polish mathematicians were already working on breaking Enigma machine codes. These gadgets used wired wheels inserted into a cipher machine to scramble and unscramble text. Since business and Die Ewige Staat are much the same in Germanic Altrurias, commercial Enigma machines quickly evolved into military coders to meet the exigencies of the initiation of force. The initiation encountered resistance, much as in Newton’s Second Law, and war was declared.

After actual bombs rained down on British assets, the folks at Bletchley Park hired Alan Turing to work on decryption. Alan was comfortable with mechanical approaches and improved codebreaking machines the Poles called “bombes.” Why bombes?

The explanation in several Turing books that mention the name had to do with the ticking sound they made. The writers then leapt to the conclusion of ticking time bombs, nèe (or is it née?) “bombes,” Quod Erat Demonstratum. This explanation was, for some reason, facile and unsatisfactory.

Another unsatisfactory answer to a simple question was given by a couple of Brazilian students being prodded, poked, inspected and detected by Amerika’s own imitation of Germanic Altrurian officiousness. I refer, of course, to the Transport Sozialist Arbeiterpartei, affectionately dubbed the Tea Essay at U.S. airports. The unionized government employee doing the poking, prodding, inspecting and detecting produced from their luggage a plastic box with some heft to it, a wire going in and a tube coming out, and asked “Wuz dis?”

The Brazilian students knew exactly what it was: an aquarium pump to keep tropical fish from drowning—a bomba de ar.
“Eat ease a air bomb,” they replied politely–albeit none too fluently–and were immediately surrounded by semiliterate steroid abusers First Responders™ with loaded guns, handcuffs, pepper spray, clubs, nylon straps, badges and governmental impunity.

So returning to the bombes that defeated Europe’s christianizing eugenics program:
Q: what goes tick tick tick and is familiar to Polish scientists?

A: a vacuum pump.

Dallas Hippies Vote Libertarian

RETALIATE!

Resistance is utile!

Yep, it’s a nightmare for Nixon National Socialists, but voting Libertarian gets results. Your vote for a Libertarian Party candidate forces incumbent politicians to repeal bad laws. Otherwise they lose to each other. Any way you look at it, you win!

Here in this issue of an old Dallas underground newspaper is the Lee Park Massacre Saga in five-part harmony, with the names of the quarter-thousand Texas teenagers arrested and charged with Plant Leaves! The massacre occurred April 12, 1970, when the Moral Majority, eager to get those George Wallace spoiler votes away from ku-klux Dixiecrats and into the Republican column, sent the cops to beat and arrest long-haired Grateful Dead fans for daring to breathe air alongside the leafy Avatars of Satan. These are the people George Holy War Bush and Donald Trump want put to death, when not even the Republican Party platform calls for such cruel and superstitious violence.

If you find the name of anyone you know on the list of those arrested, why not ask them to register and vote for the party that wants to repeal all those violent laws and expunge everyone’s record? Remember, we don’t have to actually elect any candidates in order to change the laws. But there are dozens of dozens of elected libertarians holding office–enough to scare the daylights out of rabid republicans and dictatorial democrats. Honest elected officials are switching to the libertarian party.

The fanatical Prohibition Party never elected anyone. They barely averaged 1,4% of the vote in 11 election campaigns. But they did put the Prohibition Amendment into the Constitution and sent cops to break down doors, jail and shoot men, women, children and dogs–and confiscate their property. The Crash and Depression were the work of the entrenched parties doing their bidding.

This works in reverse now that there is a Libertarian Party earning 5% and 10% of the vote all over the map, and 3.25% according to the federal vote-counting kleptocracy. If that doesn’t sound like much to you, it is a hell of a lot to some pulpit-thumping Republican who just lost by 2%.

Want proof? In 1972 many states were trying to bring back the Comstock laws, ban diaphragms, The Pill, anything having to do with birth control. The Libertarian party platform said to leave the ladies alone. Let women and their doctors decide things like abortion. The Supreme Court copied the Libertarian Plank into the Roe v. Wade decision, striking down Dixiecrat coathanger abortion laws. The Prohibitionists and Republicans have since 1976 been trying to put a Coathanger Abortion amendment into the Constitution.

Nothing irritates these initiators of force more than this increasing vote count going to the Libertarian Party. It is your best defense against their violent usurpations against individual rights. Ours is the only party that is growing hockey-stick fashion. Our platform seeks to decriminalize hemp leaves, LSD, cactus, mushroom and other plant products known to be safer than cigarettes, alcohol, pharma meds or addictive painkillers. Portugal has a Libertarian Party and decriminalized ALL “drugs” 17 years ago. Portugal is today the most civilized country in Europe.

Kick them where it hurts

Vote libertarian. It’s the ONLY way to repeal bad laws!
