Taking your money at gunpoint

You pay taxes because the government forces you to. The only differences between taxation and robbery are:

  1. The government makes it legal (when they do it).
  2. The government has more window-dressing or layers of deception. For example, they’ll say that you pay taxes voluntarily. (Which is deception, because they will jail you and/or your banker if you don’t pay; and shoot you if you resist jail.)

In Seminole County, FL, they just got a little more honest. Seminole County tax collector will allow employees to carry guns.

Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg told the Orlando Sentinel that according to Florida law, he and his employees are considered “revenue officers” and are exempt from the state’s ban on the open carrying of firearms while performing their duties…

He said 15 to 20 employees will be allowed to carry firearms. Greenberg said no one will be forced to carry a weapon, adding that he “can’t imagine that they wouldn’t want to.”

The citizens, by contrast, can’t carry guns. So now the tax collectors are armed, and the citizens aren’t. (Whereas before, they met on slightly more equal terms and had to bring the police in for any physical disputes.) Roman empire, here we come!

Somebody’s Hamburger Is Burning

Looking at scenes of the violence at the G20 in Hamburg, it’s hard to believe anything other than that the left craves a violent revolution.

The rioters apparently smashed a lot of shops, burned a lot of cars, and filled the streets with debris. Echoes of what violent leftists have done recently in Berkeley, Oakland, and Portland.

Most of the British websites are covering the carnage, although the BBC seems to be whitewashing it a little. Meanwhile, the American news media is too busy wadding their knickers over trivialities to cover the rioting.

This one picture that’s been passed around the Twitters  perfectly combines the left’s violence and narcissism in one image, or would if someone were pounding on a free speech advocate with a bike lock in the background.

Sane People Not Welcome

Rush Limbaugh did a piece this week on how the impetus of the Democrat Left is to force society to accept dysfunction as normal. He has a point.

A transgender activist (oh, boy, you see those two words together and you know you’re about to hit high Octane crazy)  named Zinnia Jones went on a Twitter tear attacking straight men who don’t want to date chicks with dicks.

“I don’t see a problem with telling straight guys who are exclusionary of trans women partners that they should try to work through that.

Being exclusionary of trans women partners should be an outlier and marginal position for straight men, not some commonplace expectation.

I also don’t believe the blanket claim of ‘straight men don’t want to be with someone who has a dick!’

There’s some baseline rate for that as an actual true preference. But it’s artificially inflated by social stigma and biases.

It’s subject to the effect of *incredible* numbers of straight men who want us but refuse to ever admit to it, and cover it with transphobia.

Do the majority straight men really secretly lust for chicks with dicks, and its only society’s stigma that keeps them from dating “trans women?” Because Zinnia Jones really believes that.

Question for you homos: Would any of you be into dating a “Trans Man?” Do you agree with Zinnia Jones that “All genitals are sort of funny looking. It’s just flesh. You can probably deal with it.”? (Thus reducing all the complexities of sexuality to matters of genital anatomy.)

It this type of pure deranged, completely-out-of-touch with reality, delusional rant that is now the norm on the left. And the 21st Century Democrat Party would rather align itself with Zinnia Jones than with the working class normal people of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, or Ohio (the “bitter clingers, as Barack Obama called them). The Democrat Party has become obsessed with social justice virtue signaling to the exclusion of the practical functions of Government. It’s a fairly easy thesis to demonstrate. Democrat-run Illinois is losing population and jobs, but just initiated a massive tax increase. Democrat-Run California, too, just enacted a massive tax increase and is continuing to pour billions into a railroad project that is neither needed nor wanted by the public, but Party Elites need to signal their virtue with regard to the (increasingly discredited) theory of human-caused global warmening.  Democrats insist that the tax increases are necessary, but the low tax states of Texas and Florida seem to be doing OK. Oh, and New York City’s Democrat mayor skipped out on his mayoral duties in order to join Antifa in protesting Donald Trump at the G-20 because that kind of empty symbolism and common cause with violent hate groups is what the party is all about. Democrat policies seem to be designed particularly to drive normal, reasonable people out of the jurisdictions they control.

Indeed, Democrat strategist Mark Penn wrote an Op-Ed suggesting that the Democrat Party might want to maybe refocus on the economic and practical concerns of the middle and working class, and was promptly slammed for it by the party’s virtue-signaling activist base. (Mostly, middle-aged divorced women, or women that never found a man in the first place and are super bitter about it and the type of beta males drawn to leftist politics.)

Donald Trump made a speech in Poland defending the west’s values of pluralistic democracy and basic human rights. The Democrat Left attacked him as a fascist. And then they pushed a fake news story that the first lady of Poland refused to shake hands with him.

The Left sides with Islamic supremacy, part 2

If you missed it: last weekend, beloved left-wing Sharia advocate Linda Sarsour called for “jihad” (her word) against President Trump.

The Left promptly fell over themselves, not to denounce her use of the term; but rather to denounce anyone so bigoted as to think that the word could have a violent connotation.

Sarsour provided the necessary fig leaf, by bracketing her call for jihad with blather about how Peaceful Mohammed was totes about Speaking Truth To Power. But imagine if, during the Obama administration, a far-right Christian activist – the type who advocates Christian Reconstruction, say, and who had excused an abortion clinic bombing – had called defiantly for “holy war” against President Obama. The Left would have called for that activist’s imprisonment.

We live in a world, remember, where the Left thinks that using a crosshairs metaphor in your election advertising is direct incitement to violence; as is an Internet joke (meme) in which a corporate logo is being pounded on.

But calling for “holy war”? (which is what “jihad” means) No problem…provided the call is left-wing and/or Islamist; that is, directed against America, its President and/or the Right. Once more, Islam and the Left are allies.
