Libertarian Commentary on the News, #13-28B: Magician’s rabbit, practical jokes, homicide

Stupid government
Missouri:  One-Rabbit Magician regulated by USDA needs “rabbit emergency plan”

(Washington Post) The Agriculture Department requires it, citing a decades-old law that was intended to regulate zoos and circuses. Today, the USDA also uses it to regulate much smaller “animal exhibitors,” even the humble one-bunny magician. That was what the letter was about. The government had a new rule. To keep his rabbit license, Hahne needed to write a rabbit disaster plan. “Fire. Flood. Tornado. Air conditioning going out. Ice storm. Power failures,” Hahne said, listing a few of the calamities for which he needed a plan to save the rabbit.

Nathan: Yes, incredibly, that is what we are paying USDA inspectors $100K/year to do: make sure that Marty and all his magician brothers and sisters have emergency plans for their rabbits, hats, and such.  Folks, we did this to ourselves: WE sold ourselves down the river for a bowl of (pretty bad-tasting) porridge. (We as in “Americans” who can’t or won’t see the incredible stupidity of believing in government – dragging the rest of us along for their self-destructive ride, usually at gunpoint.

Congress in action
Republicans Blame Obama Funding-Cuts for 3rd Failure of U.S. Missile Defense Test

(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: Gee, politicians are sure stupid, aren’t they?  (As if we couldn’t tell from the first story.)  WHAT “spending cuts”? The reduction in the increase which leaves an increase that is STILL much greater than the official inflation estimate?  For crying out loud, people, drop it!

Congress in action
Rep. Steve King: Why Pass Border Security Bill When Obama Will Ignore It?

(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: Why indeed?  Better yet, shut Congress down – take a couple months recess and go home and talk to people and get ready for the REAL collapse.
The “messiah’s” consort

Michelle Obama Gives a Nod to ‘Walking School Buses’

Nathan: Every time you think you have figured out just how STUPID this woman and the other Tranzis who guide and fawn over her are, you discover that it is IMPOSSIBLE to overstate the stupidity.

Home front: “justice system”
Liberal Law Prof: Zimmerman Case ‘Should Never Have Been Brought in the First Place’

Nathan: I assume he just wanted a straight forward lynching.

Mama’s Note: I certainly didn’t get that from reading the article. In this case, and many others of course, “racial profiling” was absolutely appropriate. Since most of the crime being experienced in that neighborhood was actually perpetrated by young, black males, it makes perfect sense that a “watchman” would follow and question such people.

So many people get off the track here. If Martin had simply answered George, regardless of his attitude, nothing more would have happened unless the police arrived. As it was, Martin chose to attack and the rest is history. Martin made the seriously wrong choice.

Obama: ‘Jury Has Spoken’: Obama’s Justice Department: It’s Not Over Yet

(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: Heap big chief speak with forked tongue – as always.  “Will no one rid me of this meddlesome priest?”  “I’m not trying to take away your guns.”  “I won’t raise taxes on anyone making less than 250 thou a year.”

Mama’s Note: And I ask again: By What Legitimate Authority does this man, or any other, control our lives and economy in any way?

Home front – Crime
Murder? Homicide Rate Hits 30-Year Low Among 10-24 Yr Olds
(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: But as JPFO points out this age group accounts for A THIRD of gun homicides a year, so it doesn’t matter to the Hoplophobes and Hoploclasts if it is a 50-year low: they will still claim it is a war on children.

Mama’s Note: And it is my understanding that the same age group is responsible for a great deal of the shooting as well. Clearly more involved here than just the presence of guns. Wouldn’t have anything to do with the breakdown of the family, or society in general, would it? And, of course, most people older than 15 or 16 can’t logically be called “children” either.

Obama: U.S. Needs More Taxpayers; Calls for Fewer Babies But ‘More Immigrants’

(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: But you see, immigrants are BETTER than babies (unless they are immigrant babies).  You know, babies cry a lot, and they get dirty a lot, and they don’t take orders very well, and they look so cute.  We don’t need more taxpayers – we need LESS taxes, LESS spending, and less government-sanctioned killing of babies.

Nathan: A sad bunch of losers for a sadder bunch of losers: Congress.  Especially the Senate.

Krauthammer: Napolitano’s Record ‘Was the Underwear Didn’t Explode’

(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: Quite cute.  And an overstatement: she HAS no real record – nothing anyone will admit to, at least.  No one has dug deep enough in the files yet.

Mama’s Note: She has a clear record of mind numbing arrogance and dedication to every kind of tyranny. She will make a fine companion for Janet Reno in hell. I can only begin to imagine the sort of damage she will do to the university system in California, but I don’t look for that to last long. Just a sneaking hunch, but she may run for governor there.

Nathan: Gee, they still manage to fool 15%?  So how do we account for all those incumbents getting reelected?  Cheating?

Bishop: Catholic Mom Murdered by Gay Man ‘Died a Martyr for Her Faith’

Nathan: Seems a pretty accurate statement, based on the generally suppressed facts.  Kind of a reverse Matthew Shepherd case, it seems.

Stupid people – Can’t take a joke
Asiana to Sue San Francisco TV Station Over Racially Offensive Pilots’ Names

(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: Seems that no one can take a joke: the TV station fired the poor idiot who couldn’t GET the joke.  Seems like she needs a break: she is just a poor news reader, who can barely get pronunciation right.  It was FUNNY, people, and no one could look at it for more than 6 to 10 seconds and not get it.  But the mainstream media really has to scrape the bottom of the barrel these days.  Not that Asiana OR SFO seem to be any more able to avoid hiring stupid people: pilots who don’t know their own limits and fire truck drivers who drive over and kill victims.

Theft by government – Broken government
