About

 

Politics is my main source of interest, amusement and aggravation. I am a Libertarian with more conservative views, believe in the Constitution as it was written and intended and am disgusted with politicians of all parties.

  1. Anyone who can put up with living with Mike deserves something special…

    In accordance with Stacy McCain’s RULE 2…
    I’ve added your site to my version of the blogroll: Congratulations, you are an official Fellow DHS-Certified Right Wing Extremist.

  2. Thank you Bob and I agree, I do deserves something special, of course I already have something special…Mike. You know he’s reading this.

    Thank you for making me an “official Fellow DHS-Certified Right Wing Extremist”, I am proud to hold the title and will do my best to uphold the values associated with it.

    • Sorry Mayo, my settings were set to close comments after a certain period of time on old posts, I’ve fixed it, so carry on.

      Next time there’s a problem please ask me about it before you fly off the handle.

  3. Phoebe,

    It’s good to meet another fellow libertarian. I am one dyed in the wool.
    btw, I use Firefox and something installed within it will not allow me to put like on articles. JFY. I like your political leanings.

    And thx for visiting my blog.

  4. Thanks for visiting me pepperhawk. I also like your blog, few blogs really meet my specific interests but I’ll be spending a bit more time exploring yours. Thank you for adding me to your blog roll, I will do likewise.

    I also have Firefox but don’t have a problem with “like” buttons, maybe it’s something else that’s hindering you.

  5. Phoebe,
    I’ve tried fixing the doggone program that is within Firefox, even removed it and still can’t put a like anymore on anybody’s blog. It’s aggravating to say the least. I also visited Firefox’s site and got into a forum where others were having the very same issue, and it came down to “you’re just screwed now”. Not what I wanted to hear.

    Thanks for putting me on your blogroll too.

    I like to meet fellow libertarians who follow the Constitution as intended by our Founding Fathers. But I’ve gotten a lot of crap over it because others who don’t understand us, think we are “liberals”. Far, far from that indeed.

    I’ve been called an anarchist, immoral, person. Utterly ridiculous. Just because we don’t believe the government should have their noses in what we eat, drink, or smoke. Every time a libertarian speaks the first thing that person gets hung up on is marijuana. I don’t even smoke the stuff. But i don’t care if someone else does because it’s no worse than a being drunk.

    But, by the time the libertarian gets hit with that weed argument their whole principles get thrown to the wind. Therefore we must all be IMMORAL AND ANARCHISTS. Makes me boil sometimes.

  6. I know exactly what you mean, I get the same thing and most of it comes from conservatives, imagine that.

    The part that really ticks me off, the so called conservatives who say they believe in the constitution but pick and chose which parts to defend that suit their personal needs, they need to defend ALL of it or shut up. There are only a handful of congresscritters that are worthy of the office and most of them are from my state.

    We get so bombarded with the stuff that isn’t even within the jurisdiction of Congress that we don’t focus on the really important stuff, like personal liberty, and that’s how we came to be in the mess we are in. Maybe we’re starting to wake up but that begs the question, are we going to do anything about it. Sadly, probably not.

    Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves. –William Pitt

    Truer words were never spoken.

  7. Phoebe, you are absolutely right that most of the criticism comes from conservatives. I used to be in a conservative closed group on FB and I was attacked by other conservatives on there when they found out I was a libertarian. I soon left. I got sick of it. I tried to explain what a libertarian is to no avail. They don’t even want to listen, especially to the personal liberty part. It’s almost shocking as if they have no idea what the Founding Fathers meant about personal liberty.

    Yes, these so called conservatives pick and chose what parts they will follow because they also have their agenda mostly based on social mores, like pot, gay marriage, etc. It is really none of their business what these people do as long as it does not harm someone else. And the feds have no business in these matters either. Let the states put it up on the ballot for people to vote on it for bloody sake.
