Laughing at the Absurdly Unimportant...

Liberty -vs- Tyranny

Heading into the long Memorial Day weekend as I scoured Memeorandum for some pertinent and pressing noteworthy news, of which there is little really, I thought what the hell just go for the most absurdly unimportant. Because I have little passion for writing commentary on the absurd (absurd IMO anyway) links rather than commentary is the order of the day.

A User's Guide To Smoking Pot With Barack Obama

Unions angry with Democrats over lack of help in Wisconsin governor's recall

Female Juror Flirts With John Edwards

Democrat compares Romney's “Latino problem” to alcoholism

Porn stars: Clinton called us over

Berlusconi party girl says masqueraded as Obama

Is the Constitution a Republican Plot?

Wisconsin recall: DNC's Debbie Wasserman Schultz sees no national impact if Democrats lose

Back to the important Sunday evening upon returning from a short break.

  1. I can't believe that somebody finally gave poor Larry the punch-line. It's about frigging time.

  2. What a strangely partisan post. Since when do you, Les, care to take part in the theater of the partisan absurd?

    Would you like a list of idiotic Republican follies? Do you actually need one? How's about idiotic follies that cost thousands of lives, trillions of dollars, all barely funded, and mostly by political gimmickry? How's that for important Memorial Day - friggin' Memorial Day - thoughts?

    You libertarians who prefer the Republicans remind me of the nice person who always falls in love with the worst sort - you're settling for something even worse than what you want to settle for in the first place. If I were a Libertarian, or an Objectivist, or a conservative, or a Republican, I would vote for Obama: for the balance of power, for the general competency of the branch, for the stability.

    The GOP is offering nothing new whatsoever.

    Obama represents a relatively acceptable status quo.

    At this point, I'd just stay the course. I don't see our congress and courts helping this country along any time soon. We have a real constitutional problem there. You Libertarians sometimes seem a little too focused on the Executive Branch, forgetting (conveniently?) that sometimes some big decisions have to come from below if you relegate the Executive to only enforcement, and with the system we have today, that's starting to look impossible. For all your small-r republicanism, you just can't seem to accept that more local government means more government with less accountability overall.

    It'd kill the country.

    Have a nice Memorial Day weekend. ;)


  3. You can sensor me as you censor others who call your political cult full of shit, but you have to read it to censor it, that's good enough. I don't have an ego problem like you, thinking everything I say must be read and followed by everyone. Only psychos NEED that.

    1. Indeed I can, and indeed I will. In fact I do not read your crap, it goes to the spam file where it belongs. I read this one in full and posted because it is a joke, just like you. You need not look far to see a psycho as you wake and look in the mirror each and every day.

    2. That's exactly what I did with the numbers fellow, Les. Didn't read a word of it, deleted it immediately. Time is money, right?

    3. Right. There is a Weather Underground alive and well in left blogistan. Just never know who can be trusted or how many wackos are really our there.

  4. Jersey: You are woefully ignorant of libertarianism. Vote for Obama? Huh? The root of libertarian is Liberty. Democrats don't believe in that anymore

    Libertarians are stuck with nowhere to go but the Big L party. If Johnson can pull in 5-10%, they may make the big time some day, but they've got to get elected to state legislatures and some house and senate seats.

    1. What you say is indeed true Silver. But the movement is growing and Johnson is really the first seasoned and experienced candidate with a successful record the party has put in the field of play. If he pulls 8 or 10 percent, and if he stays active in the party working to build state chapters it can only bode well for the liberty movement.
