    Damn. One of my biggest peeves about most of us as American Citizens is that a great portion of the populace is ready for the government to make all of their decisions for them instead of taking some responsibility for what happens to them. This entry over at The Bitch Girls mirrors my feelings on the subject.

    The Bitch Girls
    It’s Easier When Someone Else Thinks For You
    That’s what the Boston Globe wants you to believe. Let’s travel back long, long ago to July. Regular columnist Ellen Goodman was horrified at the thought that she should have to take responsibility for eating well and watching her own weight. Now she’s pissed off because she’s being given back the money she earned and told that she can probably find a better use for it than the government. What’s worse is that she claims that she supports the idea of “personal responsibility,” but this at least the second time that she’s published in a major newspaper bitching about it and claiming that it shouldn’t apply.

    CALHOUN, Georgia (CNN) — The man sought by the FBI in the abduction of three girls and charged with killing four people apparently shot himself while being pursued Thursday evening, police said.
    Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokesman John Bankhead said Jerry William Jones is in serious condition but the three girls are safe following an auto accident on Interstate 75 at the Tennessee state line.

    Good. Let him get all healed up, then fry his ass.

    ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) – Authorities in northwest Georgia were searching across the Southeast on Thursday for a man suspected of killing four people, including his 10-month-old daughter, and abducting three girls who investigators said are in “extreme danger.”
    They need to find this piece of shit, castrate him, and then burn him alive.

    CNN.com – Democrats: Bush immigration plan not enough – Jan. 7, 2004
    One of the key points of the immigration proposal that I overlooked earlier is that it is going to be administered by the Department of Homeland Security. Damn. Sooner or later they will all have to wear the Star of David, the way this sounds.
    I am not against immigration, no matter how I rant. I just think it needs to be done by following the law. If the law needs to be changed, then change it.
    I do know that if I were here illegally, I damn sure would not want the Dept. of Homeland Security to know where I was.

    CNN.com – Bush calls for changes on illegal workers – Jan. 7, 2004
    WASHINGTON (CNN) — Saying the United States needs an immigration system “that serves the American economy and reflects the American dream,” President Bush Wednesday outlined an plan to revamp the nation’s immigration laws and allow some eight million illegal immigrants to obtain legal status as temporary workers.
    Perhaps if they had legally applied for visas in the first place, they would not be illegal aliens. Notice also that he is not calling them aliens now, but illegal immigrants
    “Over the generations, we have received energetic, ambitious optimistic people from every part of the world. By tradition and conviction, our country is a welcoming society,” he said. “Every generation of immigrants has reaffirmed the wisdom of remaining open to the talents and dreams of the world.”
    On this I agree. Our nation would not be what it is today without the millions of immigrants to this country.

    “As a nation that values immigration and depends on immigration, we should have immigration laws that work and make us proud,” he said. “Yet, today, we do not.”
    Perhaps that is so, but we need to follow our current laws until they are changed. Grandfathering in thousands of people, many of whom cannot even speak english, much less pass the citiizenship test is not the way to go about it. We have thousands of non-violent drug offenders in our prisons. Our government will not realease them, but will welcome illegal aliens with open arms?
    Bush said the reform confronts “a basic fact of life and economics — some of the jobs being generated in America’s growing economy are jobs American citizens are not filling.”
    Then perhaps all of the six million unemployed need to take a good hard look, get off of welfare and unemployment and get a fucking job. ANY job is better than no job at all.

    This was an interesting read about the comparison between legislators and Governors when they run for president. Of course, running against a sitting president is already going to be hard enough for any of them.

    Pete Rose finally came clean about having gambled after 14 years. I still have great respect for the man as a great athlete. Anyone that believed him about having not gambled has no respect for facts anyway.
    Commisioner Selig has said in the past that all Rose has to do is come clean and all would be forgiven. Now we will see if he is a man of his word or not.

    Another little tidbit is that our wonderful government has added ephedra to the growing list of banned drugs.
    Sooner or later we are going to figure out that prohibition does not work. It didn’t work with alcohol, it won’t work with other drugs either. All it does is increase crime, both organised and “unorganised”, and create a huge black market for them.
    The best case scenario for us would be to repeal most of the current drug laws and pardon all of the non-violent drug offenders currently in prison. Not going to happen, but it would certainly fix all sorts of problems, not to mention save us all a shitload of tax money to boot.

    Howard Dean (and most of the other Democaratic candidates) would repeal the current Administrations tax cuts, even though that would cost me and other middle class tax payers about $2000 each. Pretty damn steep on top of the fact that I have already payed in several thousand and will be cutting the IRS a check for $1500 next month. That’s a couple months tuition for my son, and I am behind already.
    What’s really interesting is that the UN wants to create a radical tax oranization (the ITO) that would enable them to tax Americans!! Basically, they figure that it’s unfair that Americans have lower taxes than France and Germany, and need to get a piece of our economy. Sooner or later we are going to figure out that in order to preserve American sovereignty we need to get OUT of the UN and govern ourselves.

    Just finished watching the Democratic debates, figured I would post my impressions of the candidates.
    I was thoroughly impressed by two of them. Kuchinich (sp?) and Braun are both very much underdogs in this campaign. They both have principles that they seem willing to stand for and not back down. I respect that. However, both of them seem to border upon socialism and I damn sure would not ever vote for either. They both seem to be very valuable parts of our government. You have to have people that will stand up for what they believe in or you end up with everyone spouting bullshit.
    Gephardt and Leiberman just spouted bullshit. Neither would give any kind of real concrete answer as to what they could or would do as President. They are both career politicians and both will be trounced by the Republicans should either take the nomination.
    Dean came across as a bullshit artist. Like the two previous mentioned, he would never directly answer any questions with a substantial answer, but he is ready to attack everyone else for their faults.
    I was very unimpressed by Kerry.
    I liked John Edwards and I am not sure why. Perhaps it’s the hidden redneck in me. He tried to come across as the plain-spoken truth-sayer, and did a pretty decent job at it. If I were to abandon my principle of trying to always vote libertarian, I would certainly be interested in hearing more of what he has to say.
    As I posted earlier, I was dissapointed that Wesley Clark did not participate, I would really like to hear what he has to say. Al Sharpton has nothing to say that I want to hear, but I would have liked for him to participate as well.
    None of the candidates really said anything of substance, but I was glad that I got to listen to each and will have to do some more reading on each of them and their voting records.

    The Iowa Caucus Democratic debates will be on TV in just a few minutes, figured I would watch them to see what is said. Contrary to what I post most of the time, I did vote Democrat in ’92, and not at all in ’88. I have voted Libertarian since then and most likely will this year as well, as long as the Libertarian candidate isn’t too much of a fucking crack-pot. I have not seen or heard anything from any of the democratic candidates yet that really hits me, but I am always willing to listen. Too bad all nine of them are not participating. I would like to hear what Clark has too say, and Al Sharpton is always good for entertainment if nothing else.

    Came across these principles earlier this evening. This short list sums up the way I think that government should be handled:
    The Ron Paul
    FREEDOM PRINCIPLES
    Rights belong to individuals, not groups.
    Property should be owned by people, not government.
    All voluntary associations should be permissible — economic and social.
    The government’s monetary role is to maintain the integrity of the monetary unit, not participate in fraud.
    Government exists to protect liberty, not to redistribute wealth or to grant special privileges.
    The lives and actions of people are their own responsibility, not the government’s.
    Find out more information about Congressman “No” here. This is the kind of politician that I want representing me in Washington.

    Thanks to Instapundit I came across this link to a speech that Michael Crichton gave, aptly entitled “Aliens Cause Global Warming”. The entire speech, and his view on concensus versus actually scientific discovery are very good. I was particularly interested in the portions concerning second hand smoke.

    Found a fairly interesting platform comparison tool here earlier this evening. My wife and I were discussing political issues because of something she saw on TV and I hunted it down. It is interesting how different our results were. We are very different politically but that’s what keeps true democracy going strong.
    I looked at the long and short versions, went through the short one in it’s entirety. I ended up with 1 democrat, 1 republican, and 5 libertarian. No surprise to me, but I liked seeing the different comparisons. It also offers links to each parties (including Green) platform on their own web sites for your perusal.
    What I think is interesting is how people get their information, and how strongly they are influenced by that. My wife watches alot of TV, therefore her viewpoints are influenced by that. She also teaches, so has first hand experience with some issues that I would know nothing about and just make blanket statements about. On the other hand, I get 90% of my information from the Internet, and read the occasional newspaper that gets left lying around at work. I very rarely watch television. probably 4-5 hours per week, and that would be a heavy week.
