Liberty quotes

September 15, 2010

“Saying that humans cannot live without government is like saying animals could not survive without farms” — Patrick Starr

“If men are good, you don’t need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don’t dare have one.” ~Robert LeFevre

“One doesn’t have to read too much history to come to the conclusion that throughout history religion and government have skipped hand in hand down the road to tyranny.” — suijurisfreeman

“A rational anarchist believes that concepts such as ‘state’ and ‘society’ and ‘government’ have no existence save as physically exemplified in the acts of self-responsible individuals.  He believes that it is impossible to shift blame, share blame, distribute blame … as blame, guilt, responsibility are matters taking place inside human beings singly and nowhere else.  But being rational, he knows that not all individuals hold his evaluations, so he tries to live perfectly in an imperfect world … aware that his effort will be less than perfect yet undismayed by self-knowledge of self-failure.” – Robert A. Heinlein (The Moon is a Harsh Mistress)

“When you let people do whatever they want, you get Woodstock. When you let governments do whatever they want, you get Auschwitz.”  – Doug Newman

Plastic Lazarus pigs

September 15, 2010

I was at a playground with my daughter yesterday.  Some kid handed me a little plastic pig they had found and in handling it, I dropped it. 

I picked it up and said “Oops, the pig is dead” as I held it in my hand with its little feet sticking up in the air. 

A little girl of about 6 said “Jesus can make dead pigs alive again”. 

I just looked at her and said “Yeah?  Just hold onto that thought.”

Sad what lies some parents feed their kids.  Sad.  Bordering on abuse.  What happens the first time a pet (or person) the little girl loves dies and she expects Jesus to bring it back to life?  Since I can already know with absolute certainty that Jesus will not bring it back to life, I know they will have to modify the lie in order to keep her fooled and “believing”.  Sad. Cruel.  Reality is so much better, even if it isn’t always what you want to hear.

Why do I prefer much younger girls?

September 12, 2010

I think I know why I am really only interested in much younger girls.  Under 30, and that’s stretching it. 

All females seem to reach a point (or an age) where they are no longer interested in femininity.  They cut their hair off.  They stop acting like girls.  They stop dressing like girls.  They don’t try to look feminine in any way.  And they do not seem sexually attractive to me at that point.

I have to wonder, how would most women feel if after a certain age, men started wearing dresses and acting girlish.  Would they lose interest in the men at that point and only go for younger ones too?  If so, how can they fault me?
