Sympathy For Cops?

Today, as I was traveling through my home state, I scanned the talk radio stations in various cities as I drove through them. Every single one of the “conservative” shows I listened to–including the religious talk shows–were holding discussions on sympathy for those who many callers claimed “took an oath to serve and protect us.”

It was disgusting, listening to the nation’s slaves–who were apparently suffering from Stockholm Syndrome–talk about their slave drivers in such loving terms.

To throw some critical thinking into the mix, I attempted to call in to one of the religious shows. I sat on hold for several minutes, after I explained my position to the call screener, only to eventually be told that there was no more time to get to my call–as about a minute and a half of outro bumper music played with no talking. (I was once a radio show host. Yes, they had plenty of time.)

This week, I heard Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Dan Bongino, Glenn Beck and more basically hold ‘sympathy for the Devil’ shows, supporting cops–and, of course, several cops called in to make us think that they are all running scared, and just regular people like you and I.

For ages, cops have thrown their weight around, and basically gotten a paid vacation (suspended with pay) when they were accused of wrongdoing. Now that the spotlight is on them, and they can’t easily get away with bullying, beating or killing, they want to whine and cry about not being treated with respect. Unbelievable!

Dan Bongino–a former Secret Service Agent and former cop–even went so far as to call people who don’t support cops “cowards,” yelling that those folks were probably too scared to defend themselves against criminals.

To Mr. Bongino, I say this: I would LOVE to be able to defend myself, as I see fit, from criminals. I would LOVE to be able to walk the streets with the means to defend myself and my family, should someone pop out from behind a bush and attempt to harm us–and history proves that when people are allowed to take responsibility for their own safety, crime goes down. But ya know what? The Government you seem to love so much has taken that freedom from me, and will probably even attempt to kidnap and throw ME in a cage, if I attempt to handle my own defense. Criminals are even suing their would-be victims, after their attempts at crime are thwarted–and many of them win! Where is the justice in that?

The true cowards in all of this are you authoritarians who want police service that you think will protect YOU–at my expense (taxation)! YOU “cowards” are the ones who are doing everything you can to make cops seem like regular people, instead of the slave drivers that they really are. YOU are the ones who only have yourselves to blame for the deaths that police officers cause on a regular basis. YOU cowards are the ones who support a system of FORCE, not freedom. YOU are the ones who are too scared to defend yourselves. If you weren’t, you wouldn’t be trying so hard to defend cops. And you want to call ME a coward?

Let us also consider that the Supreme Court, long ago, determined that cops had no duty to protect civilians. The Court determined that their duty was simply to enforce the laws. That’s it. Their job isn’t to “serve and protect” YOU; it’s to serve and protect THE LAW. They are there to FORCE you to be obedient to what other people–folks who have reserved such titles as “Congressman,” “Senator,” “President,” etc.–write down on paper, controlling what you can and cannot do with your life.

Isn’t this “free” country wonderful?

Furthermore, I never contracted with these people, yet they FORCIBLY take my money to pay themselves, and to pay for things which I–and multitudes of others–do not support.

Try to go to court, to sue the government, and the courts will tell you that you have no “standing” to take action against the system.

Call your local Representative to tell him how you feel, and you will get an intern, receptionist or an answering machine.

Vote to try and change things and you will get the same thing that you have always gotten: Ever-worsening conditions. If voting actually changed anything, they would have outlawed it by now.

The system is purposely structured to make sure you can’t change it. It’s like playing Monopoly with a friend, and he starts out with all of the property cards at the beginning of the game. You can’t win.

Again, “free country,” and all that indoctrinated nonsense.

In this country, we have to get permits and licenses, which are nothing more than permission, to do just about anything important to us. We usually have to fork over our hard-earned money in order to pay for that permission, as well. I hate to break it to ya, but that’s not freedom.

We are forced to pay for permission to travel, build a house, start a business, earn a living, (in many locations) put a satellite dish on the front of our houses, etc. In many areas, we are even told what types of colors we will be allowed to paint our houses, or whether we will be allowed to have garage sales, invest our wealth, protest, have meetings in our homes, cut down a tree, park our cars in our front yards, store sofas in our garages, plant gardens or build privacy fences on our properties, sell raw milk to our friends and neighbors, add on to our houses, refuse to have harmful chemicals and metals–along with aborted fetal tissue–injected into our bodies and our children’s bodies (vaccinations), work certain types of jobs (coal mining, for instance), and so much more. Government even tells us what types of light bulbs we will be allowed to use!

And you still think you’re free? Get a clue!

People with fancy titles can write down all the laws that they want. If no one is there to enFORCE them, they don’t mean squat, and are just words written on paper. EnFORCEment does the damage and destroys freedom.

There have been a few news stories, lately, about cops being murdered. While I find it very difficult to feel sympathy for anyone who would make a career out of enslaving others, I am truly saddened to see that things have gotten to the point where people feel so angry, scared or powerless, and feel the need to kill each other in order to bring about change.

Personally, I want peace and harmony. I do not wish death on ANYONE–even those people who wear shiny badges and think they are in a special social class–but those who have chosen to become law enFORCErs are nothing more than slave drivers, and certainly do not deserve your respect or support; they deserve to be shunned and shamed. Teach your children to be strong, independent and peaceful, and get them to understand that it is not honorable to work an enFORCEment type of job.

There are surely some people who became cops thinking they would make a positive difference, but the very nature of their jobs is in direct opposition to freedom–and I will not support that, no matter how they try to justify it.

A People who use Government guns, cages and power against each other cannot claim to be “civilized”–but there are many truly civilized people in the world who are hoping that the rest of you will get there, soon, before it’s too late.

Glenn Beck and AMAC

I have been hearing Glenn Beck (national radio talk show host) broadcast his support for AMAC–an organization being touted as being a better, or more “conservative,” alternative to AARP–quite a bit, lately, so I decided to take a look at AMAC to see where they really stood on certain important issues.

This is my opinion of what I read from the AMAC website:

1)  AMAC claims to support an armed citizenry and reduction in taxation.

So far, so good.

2)  USA continuing to borrow money is a bad thing.

Right on.

3)  AMAC opposes government-funded abortion.

I firmly agree. This isn’t about the abortion morality debate; this is simply saying that if you’re going to have one, other people should not be forced to pay for it through taxation.

4)  AMAC supports income tax reductions for all wage earners.

Amen!

There are two or three other things that AMAC supports, but the thing that really turns me off to AMAC is this, taken directly from their website:

“To our members, and on behalf of many other mature Americans across the country, AMAC has already pledged to combat these funding cuts at the Federal level and to continue to educate lawmakers about the popular, robust benefit that is Medicare Advantage.  As part of what will certainly be an ongoing effort to defend MA, an AMAC letter of support for the Cassidy-Barrow initiative was submitted to the Congressional Record and can be viewed on our website and Facebook page.  The Cassidy-Barrow initiative – which has garnered the bipartisan support of more than 80 members of Congress – urges the Majority and Minority leaders of the House of Representatives to protect MA from detrimental program cuts in budget negotiations slated to occur in 2014.”

AMAC is actually fighting to stop a reported $308 billion dollar cut to Medicare Advantage!

Sorry, but I can’t go along with that. I don’t want government redistributing wealth, at all, so this is completely unacceptable.

AMAC also claims to have a Social Security Guarantee plan that would keep this socialist monstrosity of a program solvent for 75 years–without raising taxes, of course, according to their website.

Again, NO REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH! Stop propping it up, AMAC!

In my personal opinion, if organizations like AARP and AMAC were truly concerned about the well-being of Seniors, they would both advocate for an immediate end to Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, etc., push for a truly free market in heath care, and have all of the money that people have paid into that government slush fund returned to them, immediately! AARP and AMAC won’t do that, because Social Security turmoil keeps both of them in business.

I can’t understand why people fight so hard for Social Security, in the first place.

With Social Security, we constantly hear of delayed benefits (sometimes years), difficulties in applying, denial of benefits, politicians using SS as a slush fund (with lots if IOUs in it, already), no actual government obligation to pay anyone (written in the law), having to secure attorneys to secure payments, and then the benefits that do come are a drop in the bucket compared to what the People have been forced to pay in. Why in the world would you want to protect that?!

Is AMAC better than AARP? AMAC seems to be much more in line with things I support (armed citizens, tax reductions, stopping Uncle Sam from borrowing more money, etc.), but neither of them goes far enough, for me, since they both seem to want to make sure government never loses its power in the area of Social Security.

If either AMAC or AARP decide they want to shake off their support for socialism, I’ll be willing to give them another look. Until then, I can’t support either one.

Glenn Beck on Ron Bloom

Glenn Beck keeps harping on Ron Bloom, Obama’s Manufacturing Czar, who said that the free market system is nonsense and who agreed with Mao that political power comes from the barrel of a gun. I hate to say it, but the guy is right. His perspective is probably much different than mine, concerning the reasons why he feels it’s nonsense and what he would do to change it, but he’s right.

Socialists/Communists constantly try to get (ignorant) people to believe that what we currently have in the US is a free market or Capitalist system (See Michael Moore’s new movie for proof), but it’s not true. What we have is a socialist government (the majority of the federal budget is for social programs) and Corporatism–and Corporatism is very different from Capitalism.

Government destroyed the free market with such things as the Constitution’s Interstate Commerce Clause, business licensing, permits, fines, feees, regulations, ordinances, Affirmative Action, taxation/duties, sales restrictions, product bans, etc. There hasn’t been a “free market” in the US, for a very long time.

As for political power coming from the barrel of a gun, how else is political power (law and dictatorial Executive Orders) enFORCEd? Are fancy titles, like “Senator” or “Congressman” enough? How about their wealth? Good looks? No! The power of government is backed by guns and the people who wield them!

Do I support such power and enFORCEment? Absolutely not, but the fact remains that political power (government) is always backed by firepower.

Does that make you feel uneasy? Do something to change it!
