Libertarian Commentary on the News, #13-23E: End of the week

Colorado School Recites Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic

Thanks to Linda and Scott for this.  Scott’s comment:  Sounds blasphemous; calling the unitary Congress/Administration “Allah”.

Nathan: Scott’s comment is cute.  Seems that most folks seem to be bent out of shape that “under God” is transated to “under Allah” but whatever objections you have to the Pledge spoken in some other language, this is as bogus as complaining because the word for the Father in Spanish is Dios.  “Allah” IS THE ARABIC word for God.  When the Christ’s disciples went to Arabia to start preaching the Good News, they used “Allah” for “God.”  Talk all you want about Islam – an evil and murdering, monstrous religion comparable to that of the Azteca and the Carthaginians – but do not buy the garbage about Allah being some sort of hyped-up moon god.  He is the Creator and Islam recognizes Him as such, even though they are very much mistaken about His character and attributes, and the way in which they worship Him is blasphemous and evil.  And remember that the Pledge itself is the brainchild of a socialist who would be branded as, at best, a national socialist today.  It is necessary to reject ALL kinds of evil, moral, social, and political, and not pick and choose which evil is “better” than some other kind.

Tribal Colleges: A Dubious Government Investment

Source: Tom Burnett, “The Tragedy of Tribal Colleges,” Pope Center for Higher Education, June 9, 2013.

(National Daily Policy Digest) The main emphasis for tribal colleges is on training students to serve the social services programs on a reservation — the needs of tribes determine the course offerings…

Nathan: I’ve discussed this article with a long veteran of teaching in Indian colleges, and he concurs with this:  it is welfare, not as much for students as for staff and faculty and the graduates who cannot get a job anywhere else because the bar is so insanely low.  I was very surprised to see only a few of the schools I know personally about attacked – they should have been included, except that some of what goes on is so incredible that Mr. Burnett would have been called a liar.

Quote of the Week

“I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.”
~ Robert A. Heinlein

Theft by government – Hoploclasts
Veterans’ antique guns stolen because of “mental illness” fears

(Godfather Politics)

Nathan: Read this and try not to cry.  This is the evil we have created in the heart of our nation.  Once more we have a perversion of traditional American justice.

The “messiah” – Government-run, tax-funded schools
Obama: ‘Gov’t Can Help by…Educating our Children From the Earliest Years’

(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: I seem to be pointing out a LOT this week that “I’m from the government and I’m here to help you” is a really bad lie – made again by the current resident in 1600 PA.  We have seen what having government “educate” our children for 8, 12, 13, 17 years and more has done to the children, their families, and our society.  Do we REALLY want Brave New World even MORE?  This man is lying: government can only HARM children, families, parents, and communities by controlling the children.  They will be taught lies – actually, not educated but propagandized and turned into murdering monsters.

Theft by government – Tyranny
Federal agency seized millions of healthcare records from an unnamed
California healthcare provider.

(Freedom Outpost) The lawsuit filed in mid-March by Robert Barnes on behalf of the unnamed provider stated 15 agents of the IRS seized the records of 10 million Americans of which 1 million were Californians while executing a warrant for the financial records of a former employee of the healthcare provider in March 2011.

Nathan: Just being good employees and anticipating the boss’s wishes: they know that is to be the grand climax of the centennial of the agency’s existence.  More slavery, more theft, more loss of freedoms and liberties, all courtesy of these thugs.  And people wonder why they are getting training with M16s and M4s and AR-15s.  Right.
