Who Wrote Roe v. Wade?

Population has doubled since Libertarian plank of 1972

1972 LP platform plank: “We further support the repeal of all laws restricting voluntary birth control or voluntary termination of pregnancies during their first hundred days.” No other American party platform had anything to say that subject when the election was held in November. Libertarian party earned just under 4000 popular votes plus one electoral vote from a state that wouldn’t let Libertarians on their ballot, thanks to Roger MacBride’s gallant refusal to cast an electoral vote for Richard Nixon on 06JAN1973.

Sixteen days after the Electoral votes were counted, the Supreme Court decision of 22JAN1973 began with (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.

Some might figure that “approximately” as 84 days (12 weeks) or 93 days (three 31-day months). Either way comes to week or two short of the Libertarian Party platform’s “first hundred days.” Yet to Libertarian magazine writer Jacob Sullum there is evidently nothing but coincidence in the fact that the Supreme Court’s a-b-c “arbitrary” decision resulted in a bell curve practically centered on the LP recommendation of 100 days. Sullum has evidently given Roe v. Wade as much thought as Clarence Thomas had when his confirmation hearings began. Thomas had heard of Roe, but could recall no opinion on it, seemed to barely know Anita Hill and couldn’t have picked Long Dong Silver out of a lineup. Here’s a lady I’ll bet Sullum couldn’t pick out of a lineup.

A month before the LP repeal abortion laws plank, women performed where doctors feared to tread

The Supreme Court opened its 1972-73 term October 2, 1972, freshly packed with three Richard Nixon appointees, and decided it would again hear arguments from Austin, Texas, to the effect that the political State lacked authority to force women into the involuntary labor of childbirth against their will. That was, like The Pill, a direct affront to the Comstock laws of 1873, which made mother’s letter to her daughter about the rhythm method cause for ten years on a chain gang. TR’s 1902 “Race Suicide” letter declared anyone so shallow and selfish as to dislike having children “in effect a criminal against the race”… The Herbert Hoover administration barred all discussion of birth control, and the “Methodist White Terror” that H.L. Mencken derided stood as rigidly against individual rights for women as it had against beer, wine and The Demon Rum. Nor was the Libertarian party the first or second with the courage to stop the bullying of women.

Before 1st arguments on Roe, a 1970 peace, laissez-faire, anti-draft, relegalization and pro-choice Buffalo party was strangled in its crib.(link)

The Buffalo Party Festival–organized when Woodstock was showing at theaters in the U.S. and Canada–was followed by hasty enactment of laws banning all rock concerts. The pro-choice Human Rights party, which also participated in 1972 local elections alleged Kleptocracy cheating.(link) The Libertarian Party was one of three already defending the individual rights–even of young people–in 1972. Our fewer than 4000 spoiler votes evidently fostered repeal of bad laws that, through normal channels, would have required ten thousand times as many votes to amount to 50% of the total. That is leveraged spoiler vote clout–an ancient technique that got the communist income tax and fanatical religious criminalization of production and trade into the Constitution as Amendments 16 and 18 by a series of political parties of the looter persuasion. Observe:

Even before 1904, parties of the looter persuasion urged predatory taxation and economy-killing criminalization of trade.(link) The Great Depression was the result. The LP has repealed laws for 50 years, and with undamaged platform planks draws 4M votes in presidential and more than that in local elections. Those votes repeal rights-violating laws day in and day out, rain or shine, year after year.

Petr Beckmann observed in 1983 that the Supreme Court is a political child of its time. “For history shows the Supreme Court supremely flexible. It approved of slavery, of racism, of the unlawful mass imprisonment of US citizens for their Japanese origin, of protecting the guilty at the expense of their victims, and of a hundred other mockeries of justice.” The court allows ignorant and brainwashed State officials to rob and endanger utility ratepayers by suppressing nuclear technology to outlaw energy production. The Berkeley Daily Gazette for December 31, 1936 features an article titled Population Pressure Seen as Biological Cause of War, written when there were 40 persons per square mile.(link) Today there are 130 people per square mile of land area, and 215,000 people were added to the population yesterday.

Today’s race-suicide girl-bulliers and anti-energy fanatics will be tomorrow’s objects of pity and derision. Like the Demon Rum and Reefer Madness prohibitionists of a century ago–their initiation of force could again wreck the economy–if not civilization.

Real Global Snowfall Trend

This is Libertariantranslator’s attempt to repost a reproducible scientific measurement by Zoe Phin. The original post is well worth visiting.(link) This is actual science by someone who shows her work, and includes the code needed to verify it is accurate in its derivation.

*** Here’s Zoe:

In a previous post, I tried measuring the global snowfall trend over the last 41 years using a pixel color technique because I couldn’t find the original data behind NASA’s public images. I have now found the higher resolution data needed to find the most accurate global snowfall trend.

The data is from here1. The results are very different, but the direction of the trend remains. It turns out that I had greatly underestimated the positive trend in snowfall by nearly 2.5x.

Translator wheedling

Trust me…

Twenty years ago I got rid of all contracts with translation agencies except for two. Beginners used to compile databases of translation companies and use those to generate personalized mail-merge letters offering to work for very little. When IBM and Microsoft released DOS 3.3, the Proprinter 2 and QuietWriter 3, translation shifted from Europe to America, and “very little” was pretty good. Over time, Europeans learned code pages and bought Windows and the market flattened with the entry of pauper labor.

The recessions that followed the Biden/Reagan Crash of 1987 and the Bush Jr Asset-Forfeiture Crash of 2008 wrecked the profitability of most middlemen. Yet translators are mostly stuck in a time machine, relying on pestering spam instead of personalized mailmerges. Every day I get propositions like:

Salutation: Dear “Hey You”
Attachment: some dreary CV in Word, which is a vehicle for macro viruses
Qualifications: no test passed, no language degree from a real university and no knowledge of math, physics or chemistry

All of these go straight to the trash. Once in a blue moon someone will address me by name, but instead of a link to their website or blog, they attach a dreary PDF. The truth is that anyone with enough language skills and entrepreneurship to be worth asking for help already has his of her own website and writes his or her own bids and NDAs. Translators who want to be taken seriously by law offices, engineering, geology, mining or oil companies, or doctors, manufacturers or what-have-you need websites with taking bilingual CVs, not spam with attachments.

I have boilerplate bids I have used for 20 years, and for a fee make these available to colleagues who will do me proud. Same goes for NDAs. For more on this see A Beginner’s Guide to Handling WIYRdos.(link) Don’t send me “Hey You” spam with Word attachments and no proof of ATA certification or a website. Instead, make your own website and/or blog–and make it attractive.

Mine have served me well for 20 years and freed me from ever again signing lengthy, one-sided “agreements” that never commit to actually paying me–much less doing it on time. Be an entrepreneur, live by your wits and build up clientele by offering satisfaction guaranteed or your money back. Pretty soon beginners will be sending you spam with Word attachments begging to be exploited.

The Unparalleled Bioweapon Attack

Does the altruistic initiation of force in defense of socialism make germ warfare attacks OK? (link)

Reason magazine had been my trusted source of news I can afford for four decades. Their investigative journalism is top-notch and often diametrically contrary to the findings of the looter press. Remember the Love Canal crisis? Of course not! Reason reported that government officials forced the owners of the sealed pit to hand it over or they’d take it by force. That was how a coercive bureaucrats got to put a children’s playground on a chemical dump. They and the Kleptocracy media then blamed laissez-faire greed when a state agency tore open one end of the pit causing leaks. That got memory-holed in a hurry.

The communist dictatorship from which the epidemic spread will not allow foreign physicians and real scientists to test blood samples of Wuhan lab workers. To the Kleptocracy media, the dictatorship controlling China–like ecclesiastical bodies of older religions–is a credible and reliable source of objectively true information that it won’t allow to be verified for reasons of faith. But isn’t China also the dictatorship that–by altruistic coercion no less deadly than that practiced by Germany’s brand of christian national socialism–killed an even greater number of people than its German counterpart?

You tell me…

Good Reading: The Adventures of a Physicist, by Luis Alvarez, is available without leaving your chair on Amazon Kindle. This is the scientist who invented the detonator for the Nagasaki bomb that ended WW2. With his geologist son Alvarez also developed the bolide impact theory of mass extinctions. The dinosaurs–and most other species–were wiped out suddenly. Alvarez explains how a meteor or comet the size of Manhattan or Tinian can again wipe out ignorant or lazy species. Remember that before voting to elect looter politicians who peddle influence and seek to ban human engineering from the solar system.

Scientist impersonators

Bernard Cohen’s article, The Disposal of Radioactive Wastes from Fission Reactors disabused me of brainwashing and propaganda which at the time were everywhere on and off of campus.(link) By the time a reactor on Three Mile Island acted up with a stuck valve, killing and injuring nobody, the looter media had quietly ignored another 79,000 premature deaths caused by pollution from coal-fired power plants. Much anti-nuclear propaganda was imported and parroted by scientist impersonators such as John Gofman, Jane Fonda, Ralph Nader, Amory Lovins, Paul Ehrlich, Henry Kendall, George Wald, Helen Caldicott, Daniel Ellsberg, Barry Commoner, Richard Hubbard, John Cobb, Hugo Sternglass, John Holdren and perhaps a dozen other scientist impersonators, ex-scientists and weak-minded Quislings converted into enemy agents by The Kleptocracy.(link) Here is a current analysis of similar machinations, albeit by a “conservative” devoutly committed to the initiation of deadly force against freethinkers and libertarians.(link)

I can easily understand how a coercive, mixed-economy Kleptocracy descended but lately from mystical monarchism given to torture, burning of heretics, violent prohibitionism, fascist girl-bullying and Creation Superstition has no trouble conjuring up a host of enemies. But none of that makes the enemies–or their proffered cures–any better than the host suffering from such brood parasitism. Soviet socialism has proven itself the same thing as Hitlerian nationalsocialism. Both sprang from altruistic German collectivism and are distinguishable only when one notices the latter is more deeply steeped in Bellamy and Lutheran hatred of all things Jewish. How different was the American Liberal Party in its 1931 platform:

Heard mention of this party lately?(link)

The Liberal Party aims at the dissolution of the Ku Klux Klan, because that society, suppressing the social and political rights of Jews, Catholics, and Negroes, is a foul vulture that is eating the heart out of the body politic; and when it was in its greatest power it continued to enroll new thousands in its membership through the encouragement which Mr. Ford gave to its propaganda with his senseless campaign of libel against the Jews.
Recent statistics based upon the census reports show that the population of the United States is nearly 125 million, some eighteen million of which are Catholics, ten million Jews, with about twenty-two million in all the Protestant churches, leaving us with the significant conclusion that some seventy-five million of our people are entirely without church affiliations of any kind. This great majority of our citizens, in the main, have no other wish than to live pleasant and useful lives, unshackled from Draconian statutes, yet they are forced to sit still and feel the chains of slavery growing constantly heavier because a small but compact and pitiless minority of ministers, supported by a narrow following, are slowly but surely, a step at a time, enacting their ideas of public morals into the laws of this land.

Church, “The Liberal Party in America, pp. 9, 20

Sure enough, even after The Kleptocracy that helped Hitler rearm Germany lost its grip on the knout of prohibitionism, its policies have dragged America backwards toward another Great Depression and away from individual rights for citizens male and female. Only in 1972, when “libertarian” sprang from the writings of Mencken into the platform and electoral vote that freed women in These States and Canada from the coercive depredations of altruistic racial collectivism, nationalist eugenic distortions of ethics and thanatological genocide and from there into the Supreme Court decision that ended Comstockism, did individual rights again become a thing in These Sovereign States. Let’s hold onto them this time. Choose Libertarian delegates committed to individual rights, not foreign terrorism, anarchist communism or warfare against the Bill of Rights.(link)

The U.S. Constitution is terse and thoughtful, and the reason the Libertarian movement originated in America. Try establishing a Libertarian Party under a 90,000-word junta “Constitution” and you will appreciate the distinction. In Canada and the U.S. there is nothing more effective than the leveraged clout of an individual’s vote for a proper Libertarian Party.(link)

What I read in the papers

“that’s an alibi for my ignorance.”

Before 1938 only Americans had a Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Still, one could buy a gun in European countries–especially the ones that still owed Americans money from the previous World War. A German was arrested for espionage in the U.S. even before Austria was joyously incorporated into the Third Reich by popular vote. Unlike the case of deeply-indebted Texas joining the Union in spite of “anti-assumption” agitation (the Union bought Texas’ annexation by paying the Republic’s debts) the $35 million Austria owed Uncle Sam went to the National Socialist Rearmament Fund in that Anschluss.(link)

Shortly thereafter, with French officials already persecuting Jews to appease German belligerence, an oppressed youth bought a pistol, walked into the German Embassy and shot Ernst Vom Rath to death in a classic Jew Kills Nazi turnabout of Man Bites Dog. Unamused by the unequal but apposite reprisal force, Hitler’s government promptly passed Commonsense Gun Control forbidding Jews to own guns and smashed out all store windows in a Kristallnacht of violence to drive home their peaceful intentions. So peaceful were christian nationalsocialist intentions that when America joined the war three years later, atomic bombs were at the top of our to-do list.

Google misread this typo(link)

Imagine Your Humble Servant’s surprise on reading the above news of Soviet “peace” infiltrators in the first week of January, 1945, when the Manhattan Project was so secret that hardly anybody even knew the names of the top three Soviet spies already infiltrated into Los Alamos and eagerly ladling out fission bomb recipes classified Top Secret! Atomic Scientist and Atom Spy had not even entered the vernacular in January 1945. Japanese planes from Iwo Jima were still bombing American runways on Saipan; only a tiny amount of enriched uranium was on hand and plutonium production had barely begun. But the following pages gave the year as 1946!

Add Rome and Positive Christian Socialism

The only remaining mystery is… whatever happened to the real January 7, 1945 Prescott Evening Courier?

We Wuz Robbed!

Robbing is our bidness; we’re The Kleptocracy!(link)

When this Iowa newspaper was published, William McKinley had been promoted from governor of Ohio to president of the United States, and the communist ideology that had founded the Republican Party had shifted over to the Democrats. William Jennings Bryan’s Cross of Gold speech was mesmerizing the masses and cleaving the Democratic Party in twain – a development big-city machine Republicans greeted with whoops of joy.

Burning crosses and looter rhetoric

Sixteen years earlier the Democratic Party platform had decried the encroachment of despotism by vote fraud. After reaffirming its opposition to laws outlawing the consumption of alcohol and drugs, the party went on to demand a free ballot and decry the surrounding of ballot boxes by troops and deputy marshals to intimidate and obstruct the election, and the false count of electoral votes which in 1876-77 had installed the candidate defeated at the polls as President.(link)

Communism regurgitates and re-swallows

Hillary Clinton ran on a platform calling for police to shoot and rob Blacks, Latinos and hepcats in general over plant leaves (just like the Republicans). She also wanted to continue sending men with guns, tanks, napalm, landmines and flamethrowers out to murder women kids houses and villages, just like Lyndon Johnson and every Republican since Johnson. Naturally she was horrified, and shrieked “fraud” after losing that election. Her sycophants ran ads begging the electoral college not to install as president the candidate who had lost at the Great Unwashed polls.(link)

The reason Donald Trump lost at the polls was that the Libertarian party ran a credible candidate on a reasonable platform. Gary Johnson was not a bomb-throwing communist anarchist cross-dressing as a libertarian, and the LP platform did not invite suicide bombers and dangerous criminals to enter These States uninspected. As a result the Libertarian party was entrusted with 4 million votes cast by honest Americans. Both halves of the Kleptocracy recoiled in horror at this development, yet dissimilated by pointing the finger at imaginary Russian hackers or Jim Crow election laws.

Sleazy looter wokeness and cruel fanaticism are STILL The Kleptocracy!

The “Fusion” Republicans feared in 1887 was not the least bit nuclear. It was the combination of a Klan-ridden, communist-infiltrated Democratic Party resorting in its desperation to an alliance with a People’s party whose main platform plank was copied from paragraph two of the Communist manifesto. Today’s Democrats have reverted to a similar coalition re-tasking racial collectivism in a different direction. Republicans in the meantime have taken to copying the formulas successfully employed by Theodore Roosevelt and Adolph Hitler, combining racial collectivism with “ethical” eugenics and religious brainwashing. Out of that we got the Panic of 1907, the Crash and Great Depression, and World War 2.

Women voters got rid of Bert Hoover, the Klan, Prohibition and The Depression

Enough women voters were attracted to the Libertarian party platform in 1972 to encourage the Supreme Court to copy our plank and rename it Roe v Wade. By infiltration and sabotage, The Kleptocracy has managed to jimmy that plank out of the platform and turn the Libertarian party into a sleazy boys club dominated by communist infiltrators. As a result, the National Socialist half of The Kleptocracy has taken over the State of Texas so that women are now hunted like fugitive slaves in a Harriet Beecher Stowe novel. This could be the wake-up call the Texas Libertarian Party needed to summon the courage to reinstate individual rights for women in the platform, and thereby attract rather than alienate one half of the population. Here is the original Libertarian plank:

We support an end to all subsidies for childbearing built into our present laws, including all welfare plans and the provision of tax-supported services for children. We further support the repeal of all laws restricting voluntary birth control or voluntary termination of pregnancies during their first hundred days. We shall oppose all coercive measures to control population growth.

Libertarian Party Platforms, 1972, 1976.
Communist anarchist and mystical Republican delegates have had their say. Their Ignoble Experiment is a monument to failure.

The Libertarian Party’s 2020 nomination of a female Quisling pressing for bloody coat-hanger abortions and an ignorant tool advocating no-borders anarchism cost the Libertarian party ballot access to half the States in the Union and more than half the votes we earned in the 2016 election against the same Republican oaf and a senile prohibitionist Democrat. There is a lesson there that ought not to be forgotten.

What Sonia Sotomayor wrote.

Under color of mysticism, Texas bounty hunters now
seek cash rewards for bullying pregnant women.

SOTOMAYOR, J., dissenting

SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES

No. 21A24

WHOLE WOMAN’S HEALTH ET AL. v. AUSTIN REEVE JACKSON, JUDGE, ET AL.

ON APPLICATION FOR INJUNCTIVE RELIEF

[September 1, 2021]

JUSTICE SOTOMAYOR, with whom JUSTICE BREYER and JUSTICE KAGAN join, dissenting.

The Court’s order is stunning. Presented with an application to enjoin a flagrantly unconstitutional law engineered to prohibit women from exercising their constitutional rights and evade judicial scrutiny, a majority of Justices have opted to bury their heads in the sand. Last night, the Court silently acquiesced in a State’s enactment of a law that flouts nearly 50 years of federal precedents. Today, the Court belatedly explains that it declined to grant relief because of procedural complexities of the State’s own invention. Ante, at 1. Because the Court’s failure to act rewards tactics designed to avoid judicial review and inflicts significant harm on the applicants and on women seeking abortions in Texas, I dissent.

In May 2021, the Texas Legislature enacted S. B. 8 (the Act). The Act, which took effect statewide at midnight on September 1, makes it unlawful for physicians to perform abortions if they either detect cardiac activity in an embryo or fail to perform a test to detect such activity. §3 (to be codified at Tex. Health & Safety Code Ann. §§171.201(1), 171.204(a) (West 2021)). This equates to a near-categorical ban on abortions beginning six weeks after a woman’s last menstrual period, before many women realize they are pregnant, and months before fetal viability. According to the applicants, who are abortion providers and advocates in Texas, the Act immediately prohibits care for at least 85% of Texas abortion patients and will force many abortion clinics to close.

The Act is clearly unconstitutional under existing precedents. See, e.g., June Medical Servs. L. L. C. v. Russo, 591 U. S. ___, ___ (2020) (ROBERTS, C. J., concurring in judgment) (slip op., at 5) (explaining that “the State may not impose an undue burden on the woman’s ability to obtain an abortion” of a “nonviable fetus” (citing Roe v. Wade, 410 U. S. 113 (1973), and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pa. v. Casey, 505 U. S. 833 (1992); internal quotation marks omitted)). The respondents do not even try to argue otherwise. Nor could they: No federal appellate court has upheld such a comprehensive prohibition on abortions before viability under current law.

The Texas Legislature was well aware of this binding precedent. To circumvent it, the Legislature took the extraordinary step of enlisting private citizens to do what the State could not. The Act authorizes any private citizen to file a lawsuit against any person who provides an abortion in violation of the Act, “aids or abets” such an abortion (including by paying for it) regardless of whether they know the abortion is prohibited under the Act, or even intends to engage in such conduct. §3 (to be codified at Tex. Health & Safety Code Ann. §171.208). Courts are required to enjoin the defendant from engaging in these actions in the future and to award the private-citizen plaintiff at least $10,000 in “statutory damages” for each forbidden abortion performed or aided by the defendant. Ibid. In effect, the Texas Legislature has deputized the State’s citizens as bounty hunters, offering them cash prizes for civilly prosecuting their neighbors’ medical procedures.

The Legislature fashioned this scheme because federal constitutional challenges to state laws ordinarily are brought against state officers who are in charge of enforcing the law. See, e.g., Virginia Office for Protection and Advocacy v. Stewart, 563 U. S. 247, 254 (2011) (citing Ex parte Young, 209 U. S. 123 (1908)). By prohibiting state officers from enforcing the Act directly and relying instead on citizen bounty hunters, the Legislature sought to make it more complicated for federal courts to enjoin the Act on a statewide basis.

Taken together, the Act is a breathtaking act of defiance—of the Constitution, of this Court’s precedents, and of the rights of women seeking abortions throughout Texas. But over six weeks after the applicants filed suit to prevent the Act from taking effect, a Fifth Circuit panel abruptly stayed all proceedings before the District Court and vacated a preliminary injunction hearing that was scheduled to begin on Monday. The applicants requested emergency relief from this Court, but the Court said nothing. The Act took effect at midnight last night.

Today, the Court finally tells the Nation that it declined to act because, in short, the State’s gambit worked. The structure of the State’s scheme, the Court reasons, raises “complex and novel antecedent procedural questions” that counsel against granting the application, ante, at 1, just as the State intended. This is untenable. It cannot be the case that a State can evade federal judicial scrutiny by outsourcing the enforcement of unconstitutional laws to its citizenry. Moreover, the District Court held this case justiciable in a thorough and well-reasoned opinion after weeks of briefing and consideration. At a minimum, this Court should have stayed implementation of the Act to allow the lower courts to evaluate these issues in the normal course. Instead, the Court has rewarded the State’s effort to delay federal review of a plainly unconstitutional statute, enacted in disregard of the Court’s precedents, through procedural entanglements of the State’s own creation.

The Court should not be so content to ignore its constitutional obligations to protect not only the rights of women, but also the sanctity of its precedents and of the rule of law.

I dissent. * * *

Libertariantranslator: Certiorari was denied largely because the “defendants” are shills overtly offering to test a law contrived to baffle scrutiny while violating individual rights. Such law-testing is common and many bad laws have collapsed under scrutiny of test cases. Yet what we are seeing today is the National Socialist males, the ones mostly packing the court on behalf of Positive Christianity, blocking the freedom of female Associate Justices to speak without interruption.

The looter media struggle to hammer all controversy into a contest between “conservative” (christian national socialist) and “liberal” (something they do not even know existed in 1931). Here are some examples of what the Liberal Party of America published in its 1931 platform under Comstock Law censorship.

On the WCTU voting to publicly shame women: Surely these cruel, meddling women are neither Christian nor temperate; rather are they controlled by a prompting of sadism—the joy that comes from inflicting pain on others.

On Opinions and Social Pressure: Now, after five years, a man can speak on these topics without being burnt at the stake–not because there is more tolerance, but because so many people have adopted his views and are not afraid to say so.

On entrenched Soft Machines: We urged the men and women of our State to throw party loyaoty to the winds and vote on a principle which the older parties consistently ignored.

On coercive redistribution: Men and women who get on the dole system will never get off it. It kills independence and respect and permanently pauperizes the citizens whose immediate needs it means to alleviate.

On “vice” entrapment: Innocent men and women are every day molested, arrested, shot, or killed in their homes, or on the public highways, by the agents who, spending the people’s money in debauchery, register under false names at hotels, purchase liquor from irresponsible persons, and drink it; gamble at night clubs, where they pay decoy money to women; and at nightfall roost on fire escapes, like foul vultures, peering into the windows of hotel bedrooms for a clue that will lead to the arrest of unwary travelers. They establish saloons and gambling dens, where they arrest their patrons with a gleeful boast of successful enforcement. They employ young girls of high-school age to get drunk and pass their nights with men under suspicion, who are to be trapped.

On national Prohibition: With murder in their hearts they put poison in alcohol to kill the people who convert it into beverage, and with the glee of a modern Borgia they have killed thousands in that way. On the high seas they shoot their fleeing prey without giving them a chance, and twenty of them at one time get drunk on confiscated liquor. And all this with the inconceivable connivance of the Government at Washington, with money appropriated by Congress for that purpose. Every week they send one thousand men and women to the penitentiary through a law which has outraged the science of jurisprudence; and under that law virtually every citizen in this land is trailed by hired spies in every step that he takes in the pursuance of his daily work, and put in danger of arrest on the mere suspicion and strong hope of his doing that which men have followed with temperate pleasure from the ancient dawn of time.

On the Supreme Court: We shall ask from them a hearing upon every question that opens the way for the examination of the subject by that body, with the hope of leading to the rejection of the Eighteenth Amendment by judicial decision as being in itself, in its statutory form, where the power to legislate has been frozen, a violation of the constitutional rights of the people.
The correction of this deplorable experiment in fanatical tyranny through an ignoble law will restore the personal liberty which has been taken away, reduce general taxation through the revenues which will accrue to the Government, provide a market for the farmer’s surplus grain, furnish employment in harvesting, handling, and transportation to a million men, put an end to the most lucrative method of political graft, destroy the foremost incentive to crime, and end the national hypocrisy which has brought upon us the contempt of the world.

The only party today that is even remotely liberal is the Libertarian Party of America.

007 Spoiler Votes

Seven Bond books became movies before the Libertarian Party published its 1972 laissez-faire platform.

Reason magazine began challenging The Kleptocracy back in 1968, and probably convinced most of our fewer than 4000 voters to back the platform. That single, conscience-driven electoral vote was a shot across the bow of a Kleptocracy busily gorging on George Wallace Dixiecrat racial collectivism, foreign entanglement warmongering and girl-bullying xenophobia. Reason helped increase that to over 4 million votes, increasing 80% per annum by 2016. This James Bond satire is a sample of their output.(link)

Since 2016, infiltrators hacking the platform for importation of terrorists and taxation of citizens to support actual confessed or in flagrante murderers have temporarily paralyzed our growth. So when in doubt about new planks or communist anarchist candidate-impersonators, why not donate instead to the Reason Foundation? It’s the one move you’ll not regret.

Prohibition II at 64

Sound familiar? See original Antifa-Chad story (link)

Republican Gov. Ronald Reagan must’ve been horrified when young people turned away from revenue-generating heroin and opium to tasteless, colorless, odorless, harmless LSD – which was legal as sea salt at the time–in 1967.

It took three years of police beatings, infiltration and extortion for governments to change domicile flower children into individuals that were often a match for their own hired muscle. The news article tells the story:

Skippies – Tough Hippies – New Los Angeles Headache. LOS ANGELES – first beatniks, then hippies, and now Skippies. Laurel Canyon in a fashionable section of Los Angeles is home base for skippies, hippie -looking youths so named by Canyon residents for their reputation for skipping out on everything – EDUCATION, JOBS AND RENT.
Unlike their hippie look-alikes, the Skippies are described as harder, tougher than early flower children. And their appearance in Laurel Canyon has coincided, authorities say, with a sudden rise in the number of brushfires and burglaries and a burgeoning narcotics problem. [Sound familiar? After another 50 years of superstitious and violent prohibition laws, the same phenomenon has spread northward all the way through Portland to the Canadian border. Clearly California voters and the Federal Kleptocracy prefer this state of affairs to freedom and individual rights.]

All of California has been smoky with brushfires for years now, while looter politicians point to the hobgoblin of global warming as the evident culprit. Voters in California have alternated between the two halves of the looter kleptocracy these past 64 years, and wildfires have increased, litter is everywhere, and bands of violent ragamuffins take over entire boroughs and bankrupt the landlords now getting the initiation of force they voted for and deserve.
Might this be a good time to rethink these policies? Surely 64 years is a valid test of the Third Law of Politics:

For every initiation of force, there is unequal yet apposite reprisal force.

Austin Texas also enjoyed a hippie subculture at that same time. Kleptocracy governors John Connally, Adolph Briscoe and Bill Clements gleefully adopted shoot-first prohibitionism and competed with federal press gangs in the incarceration of victimless youths in prison cells and involuntary servitude in Southeast Asia. Right above the Lewiston Sun Article on coercion-hardened Skippies is an article on Women being bought and sold in Soviet Turkmenistan. See if this doesn’t remind you of Texas’ new Red Republican Wife-Beating and Girl-Bullying law:

Government Assails Bride Buying Still Practiced in Soviet. MOSCOW, AP –Yazbul Yagmureva was a champion cotton picker, a hero of Socialist labor, until her parents sold her in marriage. Her father got a nice sum of rubles, some sheep and cattle. Her husband said he wasn’t going to have his wife working on a cotton-picking collective, and Yazbul was “wrenched from her beloved labors” near Bayrim Ali.
“Was her song finished?” Asked the Communist Party organ Pravda. “No. Inspired by party appeals to fight against the old ways and remove obstacles from collective labor, Yazbul found the power to go back to work again and show her abilities.
“Now she heads a team of grape growers at another collective. Her team gets the highest yield, she is the mother of six and a candidate member of the Communist Party.” (link)

Texas: Involuntary servitude and forced labor (link)

Republicans have spurned Libertarian ways and returned to their roots, so grimly portrayed by Harriett Beecher Stowe, when Red Republicans were the starry-eyed Christian Socialists transfixed by Uncle Tom’s Cabin and eager for their own place in The Kleptocracy. In 2021 bounty hunters, gun in hand, scour the Texas desert, scrubland and brush country in search of girls to bully, while male Supreme Court justices grin in amusement and the New Turkmenistani Associate Justice meekly abets their masculine dereliction.(link) After all… didn’t Texans get exactly what their majority voted for?
