"So you hate cops and government"
No, I don't like bullies and thieves, not just cops and government.
"But you have no problem enjoying the freedoms this country's police, military and government provide."
Freedom is not provided by anyone, it's the natural state of all people. Any intervention in that freedom -- like what the police, military and government do -- makes you less free by its nature.
"I really hope one of your kids is being raped one night and no cops show up."
So you admit that cops cannot protect my kids from being raped. So what good are they if they show up at all? The rape has already occurred. Also, the supreme court has ruled many times cops have no obligation to show up.
"If you don't support this country gtfo"
That's like saying if you don't support the Mets gtfo of NYC.
"Give me that address and we'll see how tough you are in person"
Violence, the last vestige of ignorance.
This guy is a case study in nationalism and hatred. He would have made a good brown shirt.

Brian Wilson I dunno about "polar opposites". All governments and - isms exist to dominate, enslave and force "citizens" into some form of pre-determined existence solely to serve the State. However, accomplished economically is academic. In the end, you pay and obey. That ain't Freedom.
DXXX TXXXX Brian Wilson Where do we start?
Brian Wilson I'll get back to you on that when I have more time and space!
OK – In response to my post "All governments and - isms exist to dominate, enslave and force "citizens" into some form of pre-determined existence solely to serve the State… In the end, you pay and obey. That ain't Freedom."
DT asked the question "Where do we start".
We start by stopping.
Stop believing in and supporting the myths, fairy tails, distortions and lies accepted without question, on faith, by rote, in denial of actual facts committed right in front of us, regardless of who we are, where we were raised or how.
The problems with Government cannot be solved by More Government!
Stop voting. It accomplishes nothing more than perpetuating the same system that's eating us alive, our loved ones and our inalienable rights. Politicians lie. Those who don't lie don't get elected. If by some glitch they get into office, they accomplish nothing and are out in the next cycle. Any objective analysis of voting will reveal: Life, Liberty and the Individual pursuit of Happiness have never been advanced as a result, regardless of what person or which Party won. Voting is merely an expensive popularity contest for those who still believe in Santa Claus, Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy.
Stop supporting legislation. Every law that actually gets passed is another bite out of Freedom. Just because it bites someone or some entity you despise is irrelevant. According to the cliché: "Sometimes you're the windshield; sometimes you're the bug." but at no time is Freedom advanced.
Stop believing in the miracle of a 3rd Party or Immaculately Conceived Candidates. The first never have and never will win any significant position in any respectable number to permanently benefit Freedom; the second has never and will never exist.
Stop supporting Secession. Yes, it's a tantalizing notion. But even if perfectly Constitutional by any means or statute, the Leviathan in the DC Swamp will never permit it without a repeat of the bloodshed and carnage produced the last time it was tried. Even if successful, the cost in Blood and Treasure would be incalculable. Only if unilaterally pursued by a majority of States might there be any marginal hope for a peaceful success? Whether such unanimity could even be accomplished in our politically fractured country today would be pragmatically impossible.
That leaves Revolution. But what kind? There are all sorts of "revolutions", from bloody and expensive to a silent coup such as the one recently attempted - and nearly successful - here. Regardless of version, all Revolutions require at least one thing: a compelling leader – or leaders – to unite sufficient numbers in principled support of the Cause.
It is not irrational to state: America is at a tipping point, rapidly running out of the time, patience or, most importantly, the political motivation to craft a workable solution to return to a reasonable basis for governance. The polarization of the two parties tasked with accomplishing this makes the conclusion obvious before beginning. Rising racial hostilities, a tiered, dysfunctional legal system that coddles the Powerful while crushing the Little Guy; government 'injustices for all', fermented in envy, ignorance and instant gratification, distilled, refined and distributed by a biased, unprincipled media blinded by its own power to influence irrespective of truth, balance and integrity.
Where do we start? Find Leaders dedicated to restoring Freedom and Liberty with the guts to accomplish it by any means. The caveat: not only will it be difficult to find and call out such individuals, but the effort itself is also dangerous. The Patriot Act and other laws provide cover for Government prefects to move swiftly, without legal accountability, against anyone fomenting plans to overthrow our current "form of Government".
Our Declaration of Independence plainly stipulates "…that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government…" (emphasis added) As Stephen Lucas' annotation states, this clause "outlines a general philosophy of government that justifies revolution when government harms natural rights."
Sadly, the Statist mindset or, at minimum, Cognizant Dissonance is firmly set in the minds of too many Americans. Any suggestion of "altering or abolishing" this corrupted Government acting destructively toward our inalienable rights is most likely to evoke gasps or horror and fear rather than resolution, courage, and initiative – beyond snarky Facebook comments anyway.
We "start" with ourselves measuring our own resolution. If sufficient, we seek out like-minded individuals amongst ourselves. An "idea whose time has come" is purported to be among the strongest forces in the Universe, compelling beyond resistance. If one agrees that Idea's time has indeed arrived, we start by acting accordingly.
If not, stay in the hand basket and enjoy what's left of the ride.

Set aside your prejudices, bias, preconceived notions and media hype.
His 8 years of living in the White House is over. He’s (mostly ) gone ... but questions remain . .
This came from a union guy in Chicago who didn't vote for Obama. A very interesting perspective!
It will be interesting to see what they put in his "Library" about his early years now that he is out of office.
In a country where we take notice of many, many facets of our public figures' lives, doesn't it seem odd that there's so little we know about Barack Obama?
For example, we know that Andrew Jackson's wife smoked a corn cob pipe and was accused of adultery; Abe Lincoln never went to school; Jack Kennedy wore a back brace; Harry Truman played the piano.
As Americans, we enjoy knowing details about our newsmakers, but none of us know one single humanizing fact about the history of our own ex-president.
We are all aware of the lack of incontestable birth records for Obama; that “document managing “ has been spectacularly successful.
There are, however, several additional oddities in Obama's history that appear to be as well managed as the birthing issue.
One other interesting thing... There are no birth certificates of his daughters that can be found?
It's interesting that no one who ever dated him has shown up. The charisma that caused women to be drawn to him so strongly during his campaign, certainly would in the normal course of events, lead some lady to come forward, if only to garner some attention for herself. We all know about JFK's magnetism, that McCain was no monk and quite a few details about Palin's courtship and even her athletic prowess, Joe Biden's aneurysms are no secret; look at Cheney and Clinton, we all know about their heart problems. Certainly, Wild Bill Clinton's exploits before and during his White House years were well known. That's why it's so odd that not one lady has stepped up and said, "He was soooo shy..." or "What a great dancer.."
It's virtually impossible to know anything about this fellow. Who was best man at his wedding? Start there. Then check groomsmen.
Then get the footage of the graduation ceremony. Has anyone talked to the professors? It is odd that no one is bragging that they knew him or taught him or lived with him.
When did he meet Michele, and how? Are there photos there? Every president gives to the public all their photos, etc. for their library, etc. What has he released? And who voted for him to be the most popular man in 2010? Doesn't this make you wonder?
Ever wonder why no one ever came forward from Obama's past saying they knew him, attended school with him, was his friend, etc?? Not one person has ever come forward from his past.
It certainly is very, very strange...
This should be a cause for great concern. To those who voted for him, you may have elected an unqualified, inexperienced shadow man. Have you seen a movie named "The Manchurian Candidate"?
As insignificant as each of us might be, someone with whom we went to school will remember our name or face; someone will remember we were the clown or the dork or the brain or the quiet one or the bully or something about us.
George Stephanopoulos of ABC News said the same thing during the 2008 campaign.
He questions why no one has acknowledged he was in their classroom or ate in the same cafeteria or made impromptu speeches on campus. Stephanopoulos also was a classmate of Obama at Columbia -- the class of 1984. He says he never had a single class with him.
He is such a great orator; why doesn't anyone in Obama's college class remember him? Why won't he allow Columbia to release his records? Nobody remembers Obama at Columbia University.
Looking for evidence of Obama's past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia University students from the period when Obama claims to have been there... but none remembered him.
Wayne Allyn Root was, like Obama, a political science major at Columbia who also graduated in 1983. In 2008, Root says of Obama, "I don't know a single person at Columbia that knew him, and they all know me. I don't have a classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia, ever."
Nobody recalls him. Root adds that he was also, like Obama, Class of '83 Political Science, and says, "You don't get more exact or closer than that. Never met him in my life, don't know anyone who ever met him. At a class reunion, our 20th reunion five years ago, who was asked to be the speaker of the class? Me. No one ever heard of Barack!
And five years ago, nobody even knew who he was. The guy who writes the class notes, who's kind of the, as we say in New York, 'the macha' who knows everybody, has yet to find a person, a human who ever met him."
Obama's photograph does not appear in the school's yearbooks and Obama consistently declines requests to talk about his years at Columbia, provide school records, or provide the name of any former classmates or friends while at Columbia.
Some other interesting questions:
1. Why was Obama's law license inactivated in 2002? It is said there is no record of him ever taking the Bar exam.
2. Why was Michelle's law license inactivated by court order? We understand that it was forced to avoid fraud charges.
It is circulating that according to the U.S Census, there is only one Barack Obama but 27 Social Security numbers and over 80 alias' are connected to him.
The Social Security number he uses now originated in Connecticut where he is reported to have never lived. And was originally registered to another man (Thomas Louis Wood) from Connecticut, who died in Hawaii while on vacation there.
As we all know Social Security Numbers are only issued 'once, they are not reused. No wonder all his records are sealed...
Please continue sending this out. Somewhere, someone has to know SOMETHING, before he reorganized Chicago?... SOMETHING!!! He just seemed to burst upon the scene at the 2004 Democratic Convention. ANYONE??? ANYWHERE??? ANYTHING???
I think soon much is going to come to light about this highly unqualified person who was President of the United States for 8 years. Soon, we will know how badly we were all doped and duped by this impostor who has basically, with much help from his minions, almost brought the greatest nation in history to its knees in ruins.
That will be his legacy.
He totally destroyed the Integrity, morals and Christian heritage of our once great country.
Who in the hell is he? Is America dumb or what?

The Big Debate among all the Brainiacs these days (Real, Faux, Wishful, Self-Anointed): Will Socialism and its Simplistic Sycophants be successful here in the bastion of (crony) Capitalism, America? From FOX to C-SPAN, WaPo to NYT, Conservative pundits pound the podium prognosticating "NEVER"! They slice and dice the Russians (of course), the "Chi-Coms" (Limbaugh varietals), Little Rocket Man, Maduro, Bernie and AOC with an admonition from noted political critics Rocky and Bullwinkle: "That trick never works!".
This is one of those rare occasions when Pundits R Us got it absolutely correct: the "Socialism Never Works" part. Never has; never will. At least, not in the sense of the True Believers and Newly Converted who stay up nights watching Rachel Maddow making Kool-Aide in giddy anticipation of its paradisiac arrival (see also Linus/Great Pumpkin, Santa Claus/Sack of Goodies). Put bluntly: there is no Freedom Fairy.
But for those jive-talkin', silver-tongued, lyin', connivin', manipulative scum out selling this poison door-to-door to children and those with child-like minds, their concept of Socialism appears to be coming along just fine! While mostly in its gestation period, the Podium Pounders are making great headway! With the litany of Spectacular Failures throughout history, how and why can this be happening?
As friend Gary Barnett writes: "Mass schooling guarantees a weak and compliant population, one that has lost the ability to think critically. It is an all-consuming addiction to mediocrity and an escape from excellence. No society can continue to be free and prosper under such conditions."
Famed economist Murray Rothbard touched on the answer: “It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.’ But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance.” — Murray Rothbard
Notice that Murray's wisdom is applicable to "Everything In General", also known as OWI (Opining While Ignorant). The eminent Tom Sowell ("Basic Economics,” “The Vision of the Anointed,” and lots more) recently stated, "…time and time again, people adopt willful ignorance regarding socialism’s track record around the world.". (Washington Times)
While not in the league of either of these brilliant minds, I can proudly say I came to a similar conclusion a few years ago, identifying "Aggressive Ignorance" as one of the four "new Horsemen of the Apocolypse" contagions already at epidemic proportions that would lead to America's Doom. In this case, "Doom" and "Socialism" are synonymous. (Come to think of it, in every case they are synonymous!)
In fact, Ignorance is the prime root of Socialism. Not from a mathematical standpoint. My amusing math skills bear witness to my inability to accurately attempt such an analogy. I am merely stipulating that the mind-boggling preponderance of Ignorance throughout the land, at all levels, within all demographics, has prepared the fallow minds of the "average" voting age citizen (and God knows how many non-citizens) to be irresistibly attracted to the Socialist's siren song of Free Stuff! Especially when Fed Gov will force the Evil Rich and Crony Corps to pay for it all from their exploitive and ill-gotten greed! Even those "Unwilling To Work" are winners! How can the BSD (Basement Snowflake Dwellers) Coalition not love that?!
Of course, rational thinkers and those who did not snore through American History .0001 know that "Land of the Free" doesn't mean what Bernie, AOC, Lie-Awatha, SpartaBookerus, and all their Snowflake followers want you to believe: voting for them – and their kind - America will finally become the Land of the Free Stuff! What the willfully, aggressively, terminally Ignorant don't realize: they're being played, lied to. Remember, That trick never works.
What do to?
MOFA- Make Orwell Fiction Again! Think while it's still legal! Help find a cure for Government! Help stamp out Ignorance in your lifetime!

The article below was forwarded by my friend, Richard Arrowwood, purveyor of the remarkable Amapola Creek family of award-winning wines. He asked me to give it a read and share my observations. Unable to locate an internet source for - "Fodder" – I will assume the author is Senator Pat Toomey, (R), PA.*

The Gillette "Toxic Masculinity" commercial not-so-subtle lecturing men (their primary clientele) about being Kinder, Gentler Wussies the company says they should be is rapidly fading into the dust of Catholics and Indians, yesterday's news. But before the Forgettable is actually forgotten, here are a couple hardly-mentioned observations about why this TV spot got its embarrassing 15 minutes of fame.
