Politics / Assange And Manning . . .

. . .  according to Paul Craig Roberts. A great rant, and some bitter truth.

"Everyone who is aware of the US government’s extraordinary criminal actions at home and abroad bears a heavy weight.  The millions of peoples murdered, maimed, orphaned, widowed, and displaced by gratuitous American military aggression comprise a Holocaust of deaths based entirely on lies and false accusations in order to advance secret American and Israeli agendas. I suspect that the heavy burden of responsibility for mass murder and destruction committed in our name is the reason most Americans prefer the fake news fed to them about how good and wonderful and exceptional we are and how hard our government works to protect us from the nasty folks elsewhere."

James Patrick "Pat" Elliott Jr., age 81, of Howard Kansas, passed away May 20, 2019 at the Greenwood County Hospital in Eureka, Kansas.  He was born Mary 9, 1938 in rural Elk County, Kansas to James Patrick and Ruth (McNair) Elliott.

Pat lived in Elk County all his life except for a short period when he was very young and his parents moved to California for awhile.  He went to school in a country schoolhouse northeast of Howard and graduated from Howard High School in 1956.  Most of his family knew him as "Sonny" while growing up.

On December 30, 1961, Pat married Marcia "Janie" Scott in Moline, Kansas.  They were married 57 years, having three sons together.  Pat worked for Boeing on and off throughout the years and juggled that with farming, raising hogs, and raising cattle.

When Pat wasn't working he loved to travel.  He went on many hunting tripos to Idaho, Wyoming, and Colorado and even went on a wild hog hunt trip to Texas where he killed a Havalina one time.  He had an annual trout fishing trip he took with his brother until his health wouldn't let him go any longer.  He loved the outdoors and taught his kids and grandkids the same, teaching them how to hunt and fish.

Pat is survived by his wife, Marcia "Janie" of the home; sons, Steven Elliott of Clinton, Iowa, Chris (Cindy) Elliott of Howard, Kansas, and Jon Elliott of Howard, Kansas; his grandchildren; Larissa (Jonathan) Olson of Wichita, Kansas, Casey Elliott of Streaton, Illinois, Cody (Katrina) Elliott of Quapaw, Oklahoma, and Cody Elliott of Howard, Kansas; great-grandchildren, Sedona and Temperance; his brother Mike (Mary Katherine) Elliott of Topeka, Kansas; and his sister, Denise (Ed) Theiss of Caney, Kansas.

Politics / "Nuanced and Multifaceted" . . . . . or Uninformed?

"Americans' views on socialism are complex. While some recent data can easily lend to overstated conclusions, there are marked changes in Americans' views of socialism when taking a longer, more historical look at the data. However, exactly what Americans mean by the term is nuanced and multifaceted. While half of Americans consider socialism as bad for the country, nearly two-thirds say that the U.S. economy is more influenced by the government than the free market, or that it reflects an equal mix of the two."

Politics / The Procrustean Constitution . . .
« Last post by redcliffsw on May 16, 2019, 06:07:35 am »
A culture is an incredibly complex organism; it can never be reduced to a political or economic or some other kind of formula.  But that is precisely what we are getting more and more of here in the South and the rest of the States:  a cultural life truncated to fit within the clauses of a constitution, and we can scarcely bear going an hour without hearing the precious wisdom of Rush Limbaugh or Judge Jeanine.  But they ain’t gonna save us.

Agree . . . . and agree.

If our American liberty is to be defended, or should I say restored, then I think we must defend liberty for all Americans, including those Laurence Vance et. al. believe are a cesspool of wickedness. If one of us is chained, none of us are free. If Laurence et. al. do not support the right of the LBGTQ crowd to choose and voluntarily interact, then they do not support liberty, and are not Libertarian.

And that leaves the door open to having others come after the Rights that Laurence et. al. do cherish. And you and I both know that is already happening, has been for a helluva long time.

These days the military is very liberal - the leadership consists of New World Order types and liberal ideology. 

Yes, the military is about like our society - and they're much better prepared to defend socialism and equality than our American liberty.

Pretty judgmental by Laurence Vance on this topic. Taken from a serious Libertarian website, but not really a Libertarian statement at all. Dear Laurence, your cesspool of wickedness, as you label it, is no fault of the military (not excusing the faults it does have). The military is simply a reflection of our society, in this case.

Libertarians should judge their own lives, and not judge how others conduct themselves. Libertarianism is not about casting stones nor inventing a 21st century version of the Salem witch trials. Laurence Vance may be advocating conservative Christian beliefs. I have no problem if he is. But he should not be making any inference that his thoughts on the LGBTQ crowd are embraced by Libertarians. They should not be.
