"We're all unequal. And we believe that every individual has the right to be unequal."
~Margaret Thatcher.

A libertarian blog, this is a political and philosophical one first. I may post the things I find beautiful or fulfilling. I enjoy art and spiritualism as well, but this blog is primarily about the awakening and enlightenment of the civic thinker. Enjoy!

We went to this burger place for lunch (turned out to be a drag bar which was shitty in other ways) but the walls were papered with rolling stones covers and it just really becomes obvious when you see lots of magazine covers next to each other that men are treated as people and women are treated as objects.

THIS PROVES MY POINT SO HARD IT SMASHES YOU IN THE TEETH

GOSH DARN IT I HOPE YOU FEEL THE SLAP IN YOUR FACE

I mean I get what you are saying and all but remember, they weren’t forced to do that

They act like chicks are the only ones who have posed like that for Rolling Stone Covers.

And that’s just from a quick google search.

Thank you so much for that. I honestly am not against feminism at all but when people start acting like this it makes me a little mad.

Because under capitalism I am forced to sell my labor in order to subsist.

A federal judge on Saturday overturned Washington D.C.’s ban on carrying handguns outside the home, saying it was unconstitutional.
"There is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny," Judge Frederick Scullin said in an opinion.
"Therefore, the Court finds that the District of Columbia’s complete ban on the carrying of handguns in public is "unconstitutional," he added in his 19-page ruling.

When whites ask for citations and sources it reminds me of stories during slavery when whites would ask slaves if they had passes and when the slave would produce a pass the white person would rip it up in front of their face Same shit different day

Holy shit, you spoilt little baby. You’re comparing fact checking to forcible enslavement. Your victim complex is so huge it has its own gravity well.

The saddest thing is that most people will find this humorous instead of serious. We’re standing right beside one another, and yet we text others instead of actually speaking to each other. Have you ever sat down and thought about how uncomfortable we now are around one another that it’s so bad that we literally pretend to be texting someone when we’re not, just so it’s less awkward to stand beside people? What’s supposed to strengthen our bonds has taken away from it. It’s time to take our faces out of our phones and notice the world, give a kind gesture to someone, and go SEE your friends instead of just texting them.
I’m going to let that sink in.

Ah yes let me just up and leave school right in between my classes so I can go see the friend 40 miles away that i’m currently texting instead of making idle chit chat with the people around me that I don’t particularly care for.Fuck your pretentious shit.

If you are a human being and another human being decides that grabbing you and forcing you to submit to a sexual act is in their best interest, it is probably in your best interest to incapacitate that individual. All the hashtags and internet signs in the world won’t help you do that.

A small framed woman against a large framed man becomes less of a size battle when you shoot him in the face.

A drunk, grabby man becomes less of a threat when the more sober man shoots him in the stomach and runs to call for help.

An aggressive girlfriend bent on getting her way might fall to the wayside when you smash her throat and fill her face with pepper spray when you run for help.

A group of inebriated men decided that the girl walking home alone of a different color needed to get their meat inside her. Things end up different when you insert lead into their hearts.

A group of bureaucrats sit down and decide that defending yourself is illegal. Running away and calling 911 is your only option. “Piss yourself or tell him you have your period” is now your option. The Brady Campaign wants you to submit to rape instead of killing your attacker.

These people are your enemy. They care not for your safety.

Evil exists. It won’t go away. There are many situations possible when it comes to sexual assault. Both physical and legislative. And more laws won’t help you. No one is responsible for your own safety other than you, in the world we live in. Please, please learn to defend yourself, and in the case of differently abled individuals, please work on an escape plan, even if that’s just a faster way to dial 911. Protect yourself. Your life is worth more than someone who is trying to ruin or end yours.

HERE’S JUST HOW MUCH IT PAYS TO BE CONVENTIONALLY ATTRACTIVE

We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

Watch Vox’s full video to see the many other ways these unrealistic beauty standards effect where we work.

I just want to know how they categorized “attractiveness” and figured out these statistics. Beauty is almost completely subjective.

Also if this is true, what do they plan to do about it? What’s their solution?

This is true, but the best question is how they plan to legislate it. Would they penalize the attractive or the ones who treat the attractive people better?

There ought to be a law! Redistribute facial features! Or outlaw people who commit the hate crime of thinking others are attractive!

I agree and disagree at the same time. A ring is not the only proof and final testament of love. If a man is faithful, loves you and your children, and provides for you, a ring pales in comparison. Some women have rings but a non-committed spouse. I would LOVE to have a big ring, but I’m not married to the ring. I’m married to the man. 

why settle for a house
a whole house
when you can have
a ring

I’d much rather have an 8-bedroom house with someone who cares but am not married to than a ring living on the side of the highway. Ijs.

Ok but like why not have both tho?

One’s a piece of jewelry and the other is an investment in real estate?

8 bedrooms sounds kind of ridiculous for two people, though.

When people talk about the ring though, aren’t they talking about marriage? I’d rather get that ring first and sign those papers because he can buy a house, but if you’re name aint on those papers he can kick you out but if you’ve got that ring (aka marriage) you own half his shit. And I dunno, but I’d rather know I own half his shit if we split.

>if you got that ring you own half his shit

>implying we wouldn’t get a prenup before arranging a marriage

>if you got that ring you own half his shit

Fuck, if this is how people view marriage anymore, I’m out.

Where I went to high school, there was no GPA weighing for AP classes. An A in AP was still a 4, not a 5. It made sense to only take average level classes, then, if you could tolerate them.

I don’t understand how someone can have a 10 GPA. And if that is how most schools weigh APs, that’s really not too fair if it is at the discretion of each district. It’s like some schools count A+a and As the same and some don’t even have pluses and minuses.

So what you’re saying is essentially that you think schools need more federal regulation?

No, it sounds like what she’s saying is that she thinks the GPA system is flawed because it doesn’t mean anything. Sort of like most standardized measurements of academic ability.

Having both numeric and alphabetic standards for grades is dumb, especially pre-college.

nothing happened, he’s just never been that great and people are starting to realize it

He just does stencil street art. The style or talent is nothing special. What’s cool about him is the sometimes poignant, sometimes ironic, and sometimes plain ridiculous socio-political commentary he’s capable of.

We Need to Teach Kids to Use Guns

supernugget42:

No, I am not joking.

I think if we included basic marksmanship and more importantly, gun safety into the curriculum of the public school system we would see a decrease in accidental deaths and decrease the irrational attitudes we towards firearms; both the irrational fear of some, and the irrational attraction we have seen inspired by media like of Call of Duty and the Expendables. 

image

Now, what do I think we should teach kids? And when? I think it would of course have to start with safety. The root of it all has to be safety. We should teach the four basic rules of firearm safety while kids are still in elementary school. The rules are as follows,

  1. ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED

  2. NEVER LET THE MUZZLE COVER ANYTHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY

  3. KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET

  4. BE SURE OF YOUR TARGET

After teaching the basic rules and teaching safe handling of weapons, we should get kids some trigger time. Not with actual firearms, not yet. It would have to start with BB guns. They are almost without recoil, cause little to no injury even if someone is shot, and are very simple for someone to use. With eye protection and safe range policies there really is no safer way to learn basic marksmanship and safety. This should be mandatory.

Now after this basic familiarity training, everything else should be optional. Kids should be able to learn marksmanship with .22 rifles and beyond as they get older and advance through school. They don’t need to be actual classes, but weekend programs that take interested students(with parental permission of course) to get time on range with more advanced weapons and larger calibers. 

I believe such a program would demystify firearms to both the gun enthused and those that are afraid of guns. They are tools first and foremost that have a purpose. They are for sport. For putting food on the table. For defense of the family. For defense of the country. They can be fun, and they can be fascinating. But in the end if you do not treat them with respect they will bite you, or someone else. If we can teach everyone this we’ll see a safer and better society. 

A science of economics must be developed before a science of politics can be logically formulated. Essentially, economics is the science of determining whether the interests of human beings are harmonious or antagonistic. This must be known before a science of politics can be formulated to determine the proper functions of government.

Immediately following the development of a science of economics, and at the very beginning of the formulation of a science of politics, this all-important question must be answered: What is law? What ought it to be? What is its scope; its limits? Logically, at what point do the just powers of the legislator stop?

I do not hesitate to answer: Law is the common force organized to act as an obstacle to injustice. In short, law is justice

Frederic Bastiat, The Law

I snagged about five copies of The Law while I was at Freedom Fest and I’m thumbing through one again. I don’t know if there will ever be a more articulate, eloquent and concise advocate for liberty.
