        News & opinion from a libertarian angle

        Government IS NOT your friend!

        Invoking extremes just makes things worse. Government usually creates more problems to solve the problems it already created.

        I had a blog, a big ole political blog with all sorts of entries and spanning two blogging platforms. It went through a catastrophic data scramble. Some content was lost. So here are the old directory links. As I find it useful, I'll probably end up rewriting it and putting in the new blog. But there are some mixups.

        ?Essential Protests, Non Essential Work?

        “Our lovely and unbiased healthcare professionals are here to explain why your job and family are stupid and not a worthy reason to put lives at risk, but rubbing shoulders with 10,000 strangers to shake signs and burn cars is!”

        ?The lost neighborhood under New York's Central Park?

        “If you’ve been to New York, you’ve probably visited Central Park. But there’s a part of its story you won't see.

        It’s a story that goes back to the 1820s, when that part of New York was largely open countryside. Soon it became home to about 1,600 people. Among them was a predominantly black community that bought up affordable plots to build homes, churches and a school. It became known as Seneca Village. And when Irish and German immigrants moved in, it became a rare example at the time of an integrated neighborhood.

        Everything changed on July 21, 1853. New York took control of the land to create what would become the first major landscaped park in the US -- they called it “The Central Park.”

        In the Vox series Missing Chapter, Vox Senior Producer Ranjani Chakraborty revisits underreported and often overlooked moments from the past to give context to the present. Join her as she covers the histories that are often left out of our textbooks. Our first season tackles stories of racial injustice, political conflicts, even the hidden history of US medical experimentation.”

        ?Who Is Booker T. Washington??

        “In the years following the Civil War, Booker T. Washington devoted his life to helping blacks transition out of slavery and into freedom. While his ideas were never fully embraced in his time, today, more than a century later, they remain strikingly relevant. Derryck Green from Project 21 explains.”

        First Amendment

        “…the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

        Pinned to top until after the riots end.

        ?Graduation 2020: The Covid Class?

        “The 2020 graduating class faces challenges unlike any class before it. Uncertainty looms at every turn: job prospects, social interactions, and many other aspects of “normal life” once taken for granted. So what lessons can be learned from this unparalleled situation? Dennis Prager offers three.”

        • I'd draw the line at Coolidge myself. Although Eisenhower did "get things done" and Reagan had flair. Reagan was also part of the unofficial triumvirate that brought down the Soviet Union.

        • I'm probably not explaining this as well as I could have.

          Assume (for the moment) that Trump is exactly what we need when we need it. Assume that he does exactly what needs to be done. He can't do it without expanding the power and reach of government, and he can't do it without expanding the power of the Executive Branch and the Presidency. After his second term, Trump rides off into sunset, a beloved hero and leader of historical proportions. Everything is better, the county is on the right path, or at least the path you approve.

          What about the next President? What about two presidents later?

          Do you think that the Democrats or their successors will be permanently banned? Even if it's a Republican, do you think they won't be tempted to push just a little bit harder? For the Greater Good?

          The second amazing thing about the U.S. Constitution is that it restrains government. Nothing shows that better than the Bill of Rights. If you have to expand government to restrain it, is that really about "securing the blessings of liberty, for ourselves and our posterity?"

          Getting back to None of the Above, why does there have to be a President? Or even a quorum in Congress for that matter? Is that not just as valid a choice as Democrat or Republican?

        • If it works for you, great.

          I disagree with much of it, but tain't mine. As long as you don't demand I comply with your faith, I don't think we have a problem.

        • In my corporate clone days, there was a senior VP who was constantly pushing Trump. He tried to make The Art of the Deal required reading. Fortunately he wasn't the CEO. In dealing with that man, I had to learn a great deal about Trump and his history.

          I don't get involved in that many threads beyond a comment or two. I usually don't respond to someone who has replied first unless I have a strong opinion one way or another. I do respond when someone replies to what I have posted. Truthfully I like debating and politics. Some would (and have) say obsessed. It's one of my darker passions. These days I try to do that in a good cause.

          I don't like Biden. I wouldn't tell anyone to vote for him. But what is so bad about None of the Above?

          And did I write more of the same? That would be boring.
