My Dog My Choice

My Dog My Choice

Perhaps you have purchased or adopted a dog, rescued a dog even. That dog is yours. If someone harms your dog, they have wronged you and can be taken to court to pay, perhaps even face criminal charges. The dog is your property, and an injustice took place. Under the ideas of John Locke, the state exists to navigate and interpret the injustices that take place. The state is therefore equipped to handle, to whatever capacity the individual state employs, the injustice that takes place. What greater injustice is there than the loss of innocent human life?

Humanization of Animals

If we were to assemble a hierarchy of the value of each animals, dogs would likely rank near the top. After all, the relationship to mankind, through domestication, is the most developed and serves the most functions out of any animal. The trainability of dogs has led to the increase of their value and capacity for humans to have an emotional connection to them. The value we therefore place on our dogs is disproportionately higher than that of other animals.

Our society has humanized animals, most specifically dogs, to rather disturbing levels. Now you do you, for your dog is your property. But the value of a dog is subjectively higher than the value of other items that are also property. For instance, numerous states have laws voiding the liability of someone who rescues a dog from a hotbox car on a hot summer day. You can damage someone’s property to save their property and face no charges.

What if the dog’s owner valued their car window above their own dog? What gives you the right to intervene? What gives the government the right to strip the dog owner the right to sue for damages? What gives the government the right to prosecute animal abuse, if animals are the property of their owners? The anarchist-capitalist crowd has no convincing answer for how animal cruelty can be addressed as they can provide with other crimes. However, the establishment of the state allows the state to address injustices which otherwise could not be interpreted well in a stateless community. Animals are property, but animal cruelty is the result of people abusing their own property for no other cause than cruelty and neglect.

What is the argument for abortion?

The main, remaining, argument for abortion is autonomy. My body my choice. The argument equates abortion to an elective surgery. After all, if they say an unborn fetus is not a person, terminating it is equivalent to Kim Kardashian-West’s butt implants. But the Left can’t describe what “it” is. If it’s not a person, what is it? Rick Santorum got silence in response when he asked this question. Pro abortionist often have not taken their beliefs to their logical conclusion.

Despite science, humans have declared something can be a separate human but not a person until increasingly arbitrary standards such as viability or now birth have been met. But even if a scientifically separate human being is not a moral person, what then is that separate human being? And more importantly, what value does a human being that’s not a person have? My body, my choice. My dog, my choice. Surely a human life is more than a dog’s life even if that human is not the moral equivalent of a person. For mankind is separated from animals, by means of divine creation or the process of evolution; these are two answers to the obvious distinction between man and beast.

Where personhood defines the value of a human being as inherently more than that of an animal, what is the value of a human being that is not a person? Just because a fetus, the pro-abortionists have declared, is not a person, does not mean that the human life does not have value. For if human beings are above animals should that also mean that human life regardless of personhood holds a superior value to animal life? So what then gives you the right to poison this human life? What then gives you the right to inject this human being with a drug that kills it? What then gives you the right to drain the amniotic fluid and dismember the human being as you rip it from the uterus?

Autonomy. That is the answer of the pro-abortion crowd.

Autonomous Tyranny

Initially I wanted to refer to this as privatized tyranny, but autonomous tyranny is a far better, far more applicable to the realms of animals and slavery. The idea that you can do whatever you want to that which is in your domain, even to the point of tyranny, is autonomous tyranny. Where else do we as a society allow autonomous tyranny to exist? The divine right of parents has long been extinguished. There are limits to parental powers and the need to mitigate the abuse of children necessitates these limits for an injustice has occurred when children are abused. The concept of owning a fellow human being has been eradicated, placing yet another limit on autonomous tyranny. So what remains?

Puppies and unborn babies. No! Because puppies have protections, we prosecute people who abuse puppies. But people who murder unborn babies have committed a far more egregious offense, for the value of human life is greater than that of a puppy whether you accept personhood when human life begins or at some arbitrary, less logically defendable point in development. Yet the argument of autonomy is the only defense these actions have in the face of the injustice committed. But because an injustice has been committed, the duty of the state is to navigate how we deal with the injustice that took place. The duty of the state is not to bankroll these injustices under the guise of healthcare. The state does not exist to accelerate injustices, for in propagating injustice, the state is elevating its own state of existence to one where it can declare what is just or unjust, rewriting the works of nature and natural law.

It is, however, the duty of the state to interpret how society deals with injustice. Among the most difficult are injustices stemming from autonomous tyranny.

Ben Carson points to Trump’s policies as proof he is not a racist

Ben Carson points to Trumps policies as proof he is not a racist

HUD Secretary Ben Carson knows about racism. He’s dealt with it throughout his life growing up in Detroit. He knows how to recognize a racist and makes an important point about President Trump as the media and Democrats continue to paint him as a bigot. His point: If you want to see whether or not Trump is a racist, look at his policies.

I’ll take that sentiment up a notch and say look at the results of his policies. The unemployment rates for black and Hispanic Americans are at all-time lows. His attempts to thwart illegal immigration are designed protect and empower legal immigrants. And the freedom to live as an American citizen regardless of race or any other element of intersectionality has never been higher. If Trump is a racist, he’s very bad at it.

The point the media and Democrats point to is a Tweet that many question whether or not it was a racist sentiment. Don’t buy into the media lies that it’s a foregone conclusion; they are using the logical fallacy of “begging the question” in order to try to convince the American people that they don’t like Trump’s Tweet. But in reality, what he said in context was not racist. Irresponsible? Yes. Inappropriate? Maybe, maybe not. The House members he was referring to have a tendency to inflame people, mostly in a negative way, and have demonstrated clearly anti-American worldviews through their own words and actions.

Secretary Carson’s point should be heeded by all Americans. If Trump is a racist, his policies certainly don’t reflect that. If he’s trying to keep minorities down, he’s failing miserably. But look at the state of minorities in Democratic cities. Different story.

What the far-Left radical socialists do not understand: They are now a small political minority

What the far-Left radical socialists do not understand They are now a small political minority

Studies have shown that the far-Left radical socialists are an ever-shrinking but excessively vocal political minority.

This is one of those columns that’s been in composition for weeks, being a number of ideas that floated about in their own eco-sphere until they attained enough weight to gel together. Oddly enough, the spark was a piece on journalist Andy Ngo in Buzzfeed ‘News’. Apparently being attacked by a mob of the fascist Left that put him in hospital was the best thing for his career, never mind the neurological aftereffects.

Much like the stopped clock being right twice a day, the Far-Left media does get things correct on occasion. They have begun to label anyone not of their ilk to be on the ‘center-right’ or Conservative as in this case.

The Hidden tribes study showed this to be a stark situation for the far-Left radical socialists, with only 8% of the country self-identifying as such. These are what the study termed to be ‘Progressive’ activists [ a misnomer in itself since they want to go back to the failed ideas of socialism of the past – but we digress]. However, they do have it correct in that most who are not of their collectivist cadres are on the Pro-Liberty Right, the country’s political majority.

The political minority that is the far-Left radical socialists: The Totalitarian Ten Percent

We’ve rounded this up to 10% for generosity and alliteration to be the Totalitarian Ten Percent as an accurate and handy moniker for those who want to ‘Rule the population’. This is the ever shrinking true believers in socialism, that dismiss the stark evidence of it’s 400 years of failure as ‘not really being socialism’ or some such nonsense. Many on the Conservative-Right have eviscerated this mythology numerous times:

The study showed the rest of the population as being the opposite of the ‘Totalitarian Ten Percent’. The people in the 90% fall into the defined categories of the rational political spectrum as being on the Pro-Liberty Right moving from the political center with ‘Traditional and passive’ Liberals, those politically disengaged, moderates and Conservatives.

Studies on ‘Political correctness’ the culture and Liberty destroying scourge of our day also show a decreasing tendency for ‘concern’ on this issue. As has been the case throughout our history, we have fixed the problems that have plagued us. The issue is that while the political majority on the right has righted these wrongs. The political minority on the socialist Far-Left has taken credit for these actions and then come up with new issues no one else care about, such as the labeling of underground cable access points as ‘manholes’. The rest of us on the Pro-Liberty political majority right don’t care, we’re too busy living our lives..

The problem of the Totalitarian Ten Percent annoying everyone else.

The problem for the political majority is that Totalitarian Ten Percent holds the attention or is part of the nation’s socialist media. While their ratings and audience are shrinking at an alarming rate for them, they have an unfortunate tendency to lash out at the rest of us. Their desperation has driven them to want to burn it all down, causing havoc and chaos, so they can step in and offer their ‘solution’. These are, of course, the usual concepts of an ‘Ideal state’ born in the Socratic dialogues of Plato’s Republic from 2,400 years ago, ideas that have failed for centuries but are now supposedly ‘new’.

This is why they want the insanity of open borders, free health care for the world, gun confiscation and strict controls on the Liberty of free speech. This is their ‘Hail Mary’ play to avoid ignominious defeat of their precious cult of collectivism. Encourage as many illegal invaders from around the world, in addition to murderous criminal gang members and drugs, to stream over the border to be newly minted citizens that can vote for all kinds of goodies with other people’s money.

Their socialist national agenda is clear to all that are listening, offer free healthcare, free college, free housing, free food, free childcare, free money and anything else they can think of. To everyone and anyone willing to pay thousands to hop a flight to Brazil and cross the Southern border.

All of this ‘paid’ for by simply – and insanely – inflating the money supply.  The funds for this extreme largess eventually being other peoples’ money. Never mind that their ‘Flat Earth’ socialist ideology has never worked in 4 Centuries, or that one way or another, it will destroy the economy. That’s a feature, not a bug for them, because in their minds, when the whole thing inevitably implodes, they will run in and offer their ‘solution’. In much the same way that they are offering the same solution to Obamacare imploding.

In the case of the inspiration for writing this, the piece from Buzzfeed ‘News’ was essentially another case of the overly vocal socialist far-Left blaming the victim. The piece also expended a number of electrons describing virtually anyone not of their collectivist mindset as Conservative or on the right, hardly attributable to some media personalities who ‘rightfully’ [pardon the pun] consider themselves to be Liberal or moderate. Thus was the inspiration for this essay.

It’s time for the rational 90% to stand up for sanity.

There are obvious problems with a small political minority of ‘neo Bolsheviks’ wanting to run everyone’s life, beginning with their complete hypocrisy [what else is new] in making demands for democracy. But then again, these are people who disdain Liberty while pretending to be ‘Liberal’ or want to go back to failed ancient ideas while being ‘progressive’. Of course, Leftists have explained that apparently ‘Liberty’ and ‘freedom’ are imaginary constructs – along with the concept of money. Illustrating just how far they have gone in losing the plot.

The Authoritarian Socialist Left would like to run everyone’s life for various reasons, social justice, global cooling, or just because they somehow are more intelligent than the rest of us [Just as them]. We of the rational 90% would just like to be ‘left’ alone, we do not care about their ever changing sensibilities over language. We do not care about their repetition of the dangers of global cooling, global warming, Climate change, climate emergency, climate crisis, or whatever it is this week. We don’t care that someone else is making a dollar more than us, the economy is humming along nicely.

Were they truly interested in democracy, Liberty or Progress, the far-Left radical socialists would advocate what works in the real world: Economic freedom. The fact that they want to impose by force a system that has never worked by undemocratic means to the detriment of Liberty should tell us everything we need to know about why they should be rejected and opposed at every turn.

Two weeks after Benghazi attack, Ilhan Omar Tweeted ‘Allahu Akbar’

Two weeks after Benghazi attack Ilhan Omar Tweeted Allahu Akbar

This is old news, of course, but bears repeating at this time. Representative Ilhan Omar has been doing everything she can over the last couple of weeks to paint herself as the victim of bigotry and someone who loves our country. And while there’s definitely some substance to the notion that crowds of Republicans shouldn’t be chanting “send her back,” it’s also understandable why so many Americans are opposed to her presence on Capitol Hill.

Even if we dismiss reports that she married her brother, called for CBP to be eliminated, said this is “not going to be the country of white people,” referred to 9/11 as “some people did something,” and is regularly praised by former KKK leader David Duke, it’s difficult to dismiss her reaction to the Benghazi attacks that took the lives of four American heroes in 2012.

I’m not going to dignify her Tweet with an opinion. She’s the one who needs to explain it. But despite her celebration, life isn’t good for the four men who lost there’s in Benghazi. Remember this, folks, as Democrats embrace her wholeheartedly.
