Libertarian Commentary on the News, #13-36B: World Wars and the Home Front

Islamic wars: Arab street revolt, Syrian front – Stupid FedGov
Syria: nearly half rebel fighters are jihadists or hardline Islamists

(Daily Telegraph) Fears that the rebellion against the Assad regime is being increasingly dominated by extremists has fueled concerns in the West over supplying weaponry that will fall into hostile hands. These fears contributed to unease in the US and elsewhere over military intervention in Syria.

Nathan: Of course, the current regime in DC does NOT have any concerns about arming these people.  After all, they are not libertarians, they are not conservatives, and they are not pro-American in any way.  Oh, the irony that the same thugs in DC (and their minions) that are trying to disarm more and more Americans (for fear that many of us are terrorists in our hearts) continue to arm more and more real terrorists and drug-mobsters in Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Mexico, Columbia, and elsewhere. But that’s okay: the “messiah” can lie about it all he wants, and the media won’t call him on it.

Hoplophobes and hoploclasts – the “messiah,” liar-in-chief
Obama: ‘Gun Control—We Had 80, 90% of the Country That Agreed With It’

(CNSNews.com) Appearing on ABC News’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos” on Sunday, President Barack Obama said he had 80 to 90 percent of the country agreeing with him in favor of gun control, but the he could not get gun-control legislation enacted because of a “faction of the Republican Party.”

Nathan: The truth?  The liar-in-chief couldn’t even get 80-90 percent of DEMOCRATS to agree with his hoploclastic agenda.  But never fear, he has other, better things planned, as the next story relates.

The Abominable Act
Obamacare will question your sex life

(New York Post
)Obamacare will question your sex life. By Betsy McCaughey  ‘Are you sexually active? If so, with one  “This is nasty business,” says New York cardiologist Dr. Adam Budzikowski. He called the sex questions “insensitive, stupid and very intrusive.” He couldn’t think… article by The New York Post today reveals some disturbing new insight about the level of intrusiveness to expect from ObamaCare. The newspaper reports that every American should get ready to answer these questions from their doctor: “Are you sexually active? If so, with one partner, multiple partners or same-sex partners?” The Post story (“Obamacare will question your sex life”) points out that it isn’t just your primary care physician or OB/GYN who will ask those questions. Your cardiologist, dermatologist and other doctors will be required to ask you about your sexual activity even “if the questions are unrelated to why you’re seeking medical help.”

Nathan: A few more fields on the database of all Americans.  Funny, this administration and its supporters and Tranzis and liberals in general have REMOVED one of the most effective tools the Dritte Reich had for the control of certain politicians: the blackmail associated with sexual improprieties (perversions, to use an old biblical word).  Maybe they are aiming for the opposite:  “that evil person doesn’t even have sex, they are so twisted and warped,” or “she is bigoted towards most people, you can tell because she doesn’t have sex with everyone she knows,” or “Sexually repressed and maladjusted; he refuses to chase women OR men for sex.”  Never mind the “insensitive, stupid and very intrusive.”  Try illegal, unconstitutional, immoral and NONE of your business. Is it any wonder that Gallup finds how much we distrust and expect nothing good from Uncle Sam?

Mama’s Note: Just say NO. Do not answer their questions. And that’s even if you think you MUST go to see a doctor. Best advice? Learn what it takes to be healthy on your own, and find alternative medicine for things you can’t handle alone. Nobody can “blackmail” you if you don’t care what they or others think. It’s  your choice.

Home front – People KNOW its stupid government
Gallup: ‘Trust and Confidence’ in Federal Gov’t Lower Than During Watergate

(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: Given that expectations about government have deteriorated almost as fast as the dollar has declined in value since 1973, this means that it is REALLY bad.  But this is meaningless:  more and more, it is possible for a government, a regime, to control the entire nation with the active hatred and absolute loathing of 90% of the population.

Hoplophobes and hoploclasts
New York: Cayuga County Sheriff refuses to give out gunowner names

(Syracuse Post-Standard)

Nathan: He is “defying” a very small part of the insane New York gun control law, but I guess anything is better than nothing.  Still, this is no reason to stay in that pit of iniquity called New York State.

Killing children – Nanny State
CA Gov. Brown to Sign Bill Legalizing Non-Physician Abortions

(Breitbart)  The bill permits licensed non-physicians to perform two kinds of abortion in the first trimester–by medication, and by aspiration, which requires the insertion of medical instruments into the uterus. Though many doctors agree that non-physicians could provide medications with few risks, the idea that a non-physician would perform an invasive procedure such as aspiration strikes many as rife with risks.

Mama’s Note: Of course… no mention of the fact that the women in question would be free to take whatever “risks” they wished… or not, and nobody has to get an abortion at all. The idea that a good surgical nurse couldn’t do a simple aspiration is stupid anyway. Many of the procedures now “allowed” are much more complex and risky. I’d say the major thing at risk for these doctors is their own income and perks.

Nathan: The State continues its war on children, of course, with the bizarre idea that “licensing” someone to kill children in the womb makes it morally and legally “good.”  Just which “licenses” will get to do this?  I assume “medically-licensed” people; the monopoly remains, just shuffling the deck a bit.  As usual, this is intended to protect the “licensed professionals” and not their patients, certainly not the child.  I am sure that California alone kills more children each day than died in the gas attack in Syria.

Home front – Home attack
Man With Cerebral Palsy Attacked, Robbed

(NBC Los Angles)  An intruder knocked the victim — who was using crutches — to the ground Police do not believe the intruder was armed, said Sgt. Ray Marquez, with the Covina Police Department.

Mama’s Note: Lucky to be alive, of course. Should have been armed himself. Especially those with serious disability should not answer the door to strangers unarmed. Good grief…

Nathan: Weapons are intended to balance the field of battle.  Not just the disabled but the weak physically, the elderly, and the young are at the mercy of their attackers if weapons are NOT available (and used).  But the media and the state know that fear wins: this sort of news story gets the demand up for MORE police protection and, paradoxically, MORE disarmament of everyone, especially victims.  As does the attack on Washington Navy Yard.

Education
Teacher Quality in Online Schools

(American Enterprise Institute, via Daily Policy Digest) Having fewer non-academic duties than in traditional public schools, and aided by technology making it easier to monitor classes, cyber charter leaders spend a great deal of time offering feedback to teachers…

Nathan: Those of us who have been involved with on-line schooling, private school, and homeschooling know this is true; but the education establishment denies this.  As with the other abortion providers, this attacks their money pot.
