SNOWBIRDS Then and Now

F. Scott Fitzgerald, Al Capone and Harrison Act

F Scott Fitzgerald and Brenda Dean confound prohibitionist censors

Another example of the Bowdlerization of American English is the way Yankee tourists have replaced the plant leaf products imported into Florida. This was about the time F. Scott Fitzgerald was replaced by Mod Squad informers and Miami Vice narcs in the American language. The above headline gives the flavor of “settled science” 100 years before Global Warming became America’s new favorite hobgoblin. Brenda Dean, gorgeous English lady with an occasionally powdered nose, turned up in news stories about how “drug parties” threatened civilization long before they were replaced by the more recent pseudoscience of Ozone Hole and Global Warming scaremongering.

If half the stories were true, there would be hardly a person alive in Peru, Ecuador, Colombia or Bolivia. All those countries are crushed into poverty and caudillo corruption by the sheer weight of exported American prohibition, pseudoscience, and violent laws. It brings to mind the saying that you may esteem a man of many words–and many lies–pretty much alike.

Now observe that the Mexican and Brazilian Constitutions each include pretty close to 70,000 words. The US Constitution is more like 5000–7500 with all the Amendments. People vote with their feet to escape countries with lengthy, convoluted and Byzantine constitutions. If those places were democracies, they could simply remove 65,000 words from their belief-encrusted looter constitutions and abolish a truckload of rights-violating laws. So why do they instead try to sneak into the USA?

This brings us to the entrenchment of looter parties. The GOP and Dems, both subsidized by the Nixon anti-Libertarian law of 1971, publish platforms that between them add up to about 70,000 words. The Libertarian Party platform is only 2700 words and takes maybe a bus ride to read from cover to cover. The Nixon scheme for using tax laws to subsidize entrenched cleptocracy campaigns, exported to South America, provided Juntas a mechanism for keeping cartels alive by throttling all possibility of libertarian spoiler vote pressure repealing bad laws. The Nixon law, like a “souvenier” left on the porch by a stray dog, leaves them no democratic alternative.

Speaking of reading during commutes, Prohibition and The Crash contains a wealth of evidence that government bungling and pseudoscience caused the Crash and Depression. The book is live on Amazon Kindle (a free app) for the cost of a mug of craft beer.

Why Ecological National Socialism?

 

national socialist child

Every European country that 80 years ago welcomed liberation from greed by Christian National Socialist altruism is again raising the banner of government control over trade and production with pseudoscience reinforced with child corn. No less corny than Soviet propaganda exploiting youths in their twenties, today’s creepy Econazi propaganda again focusses on children below the age of consent.

Energy in wartime is a primary target. The hidden persuaders brainwashing children with fear of imaginary hobgoblins are continuing warfare to replace freedom with coercion by other means. The main reason this is working is because Republican partisans are loudly defending the generation of electric power while at the same time shooting and jailing youth to force them to pay beverage excise taxes instead of enjoying plant leaf products. With friends like Dixiecrat mystical fanatics eager to coerce women of childbearing age, who needs enemies? Here is the face of the Republican party at age 165.

Republicans began as a Platonist communist movement which later joined forces with movements against chattel slavery. Uncle Tom’s Cabin featured Red Republicanism in a walk-on role in opposition to Southern policies of “Christianizing” captured Africans with a whip. Meanwhile, British and French marines were attacking imperial Chinese shorelines and rivers while Taeping Christian converts massacred from within–to dump Indian and Vietnamese opium at prices inflated by China’s ban on native cultivation. American Civil War massacres over the incompatibility of protective tariffs and colonial-style slaveholding occurred in parallel. British capital, formerly invested in American bonds, was withdrawn and shifted to finance naval attacks on China, and land warfare in India and Afghanistan in the gradual buildup to mutinies, Boxer Revolt, Republican rebellion and WWI.

Christian populists and prohibitionists saddled the nation with economy-wrecking income tax and prohibition amendments, then split. William Jennings Bryan’s ku-klux populists and drys took over the Republican party and Bellamy-Howells communists hung their feedbag of spoiler votes on the Dems. Herbert Hoover enforcement wrecked the economy and no Republicans won the top offices until after the Korean entanglement, when Nixon became vice-President and hydrogen bombs appeared in military parades.

Sending the Dixiecrat message to Washington

The face of ignorant superstition in America

After JFK was shot, Republicans exploited Southern children celebrating a reprieve from forced busing. A racial collectivist Dixiecrat movement split off from the Solid South to follow George Wallace, then switch allegiance to the G.O.P. once Wallace was crippled and Bobby Kennedy killed by gunfire.  Bombs rained down on Vietnam, in a religious war between native Asian religions and idolatrous French drug producers–at least that’s the war THEY had been fighting a century prior to U.S. meddling.

Since that time, fanatical prohibitionists have struggled to restore the intolerant theocracy of 1928 and restore Reconstruction-era Comstock laws keeping women in their place by fines and imprisonment backed by threat of deadly force. In an age of biological and nuclear weaponry, surely humanity has outgrown pseudoscience and superstition as pretexts for the initiation of force. Race-suicide eugenicist pseudoscience currently warring with imaginary global warming fear-mongering have taken science and freedom out of the picture entirely as far as old and senile kleptocracy parties are concerned. Yet those parties’ appeals to the violence of law can only endanger bystanders through their neighborhood effects. Foremost among these are the reactions of women coerced as racial breeders, and the children and grandchildren of Woodstock Nation who are fed up with being shot and jailed.

The law-changing message till-tapping kleptocrats understand is third-party spoiler votes. Communist and fascist party spoiler votes steered us into today’s mess. Anti-violence libertarian spoiler votes can steer us back out and restore Constitutional Democracy protected by the Bill of Rights. All it takes is for you to forsake fear. Voting Libertarian is hedging against violence in the same leveraged way that financial derivatives contracts are a hedge against losses caused by the sort of price swings that violence begets. Voting with integrity to make office-seekers mindful of what you value is your highly-leveraged investment in the replacement of coercion by freedom.

The Panic of 1857

Looter historians explain away financial panics, crashes, collapses and depressions the way their government sponsors expect them to. After all, who who pays the piper, calls the tune. Governments also pay for the public notices sections in the newspapers, and it pays a pauper paper to please petty politicians. Continue reading

Superstition against Science

 

First there was Mussolini’s Pope, signing Lateran treaties with Il Duce in exchange for religious indoctrination and conditioning in government schools. Then Pacelli was elevated to papal infallibility as Hitler’s Pope. Today, at long last, Herr Gavin Schmidt of the Econazi Internationale has finally managed to secure a Pope of his own, and one evidently predisposed to revive that Holiest of all Inquisitions, no less. That’s progress!

Chamberlin’sThe Bad Popes” may be due for an added chapter soon. The Dark Ages were those centuries in which Europe was dominated by Protestant, Catholic and Mohammedan warfare, torture and superstition. Eight centuries later, James Clerk Maxwell organized Faraday’s and Coulomb’s research into the equations of electrodynamics. This work proceeded even as Britain bombarded China to preserve an outlet for opium grown by Indians, themselves reduced to near-enslavement, and while tax-and-spend advocates of extortionate protective tariffs in These States bombarded, shot, pillaged and burned neighbors whose laziness had made them dependent on the exploitation of chattel slavery.

Science, not suicidal superstition, wins

Science overcame superstition when the derivative was 2.1%–The Pill saved the Planet

Yet here we are, 1867 years after the invention of the Jesus myth and actual ex-scientists, now devote their efforts to the spread of mysticism and superstition. This same ex-scientist seeks, in addition to interfere with the electrical generation that has increased human life expectancy. Earth’s population has grown from two billion–when Christian prohibition enforcers shot beer smugglers in cold blood–to 7.5 billion less than 90 years later–when Christians send men with guns to shoot people for harvesting the “wrong” plants, and to jail doctors for offering a safe alternative to coathanger abortions.

The Catholic papacy fought to have the pill banned, and today its agents control politicians who deny the individual rights of women in backward countries. Pope Francis is the person most responsible every time a woman dies for lack of medical assistance with an unwanted pregnancy. Everything that could forestall a Malthusian catastrophe or make life possible on an overcrowded planet the infallible coot opposes. Still, the Vatican burns electricity like it was going out of style, while Puerto Rico is without power.

Soviet Anthropomorphic Climate Change, 1960

A Soviet Russian slideshow precursor to The Jetsons  predicts egotistical capitalists will alter the climate for selfish profit, causing storms everywhere in the year 2017. 

This jewel turned up at The Independent Institute blog, and is sure to delight fans of Boy-meets-tractor Soviet nostalgia kitsch. The Great Disappointment that troubled anti-industrial Millerites when the Mayan Calendar Cassandras failed to deliver Armageddon, The Rapture, Tribulation and Left Behind in 2012 may well have been a slight miscalculation. Here is Soviet prophesying at its finest, crafted back when John Futuristic Kennedy debated Richard Madhouse Nixon.

The best part is reserved for last. Egotistical madmen are hiding out on an island much like Hawaii–or perhaps Aldous Huxley’s Pala. Naturally, they resort to terrorism as the civilizing forces of Ordered Liberty close on on them and cause… (drumroll, Maestro…)

You guessed it! CLIMATE CHANGE! The whole enchilada, folks, complete with tidal waves, sharknados and you-name-it ecological horrors. Will Their Brothers’ Keepers–the wise and benevolent authorities on settled science–manage to use carbon taxes and a recent breakthrough in nuclear energy to save the planet from the folly of irresponsible greed? Stay tuned…
