One argument made on television last night by a Ferguson City Councilwoman was that the Officer used "excessive force" by shooting a 6'4", 240 pound man 6 times.

6 times! She said.

...... the ignorance is breathtaking.

Wrong. With a few notable exceptions, there is very, very little I am willing to use government force to do. Technically I am a conservative, but I have a libertarian streak 10 miles wide. (And no, I am not a supported of Ron Paul.).

The left / right scale for politics should be relabeled as "Statist" (Left) vs. "Individualist" (Right). I am an Ayn Rand style individualist.

To be fair, the Crusades were started as a response to a muslim invasion of Europe. The Holy Grail stuff was just what the nobles told the serfs to get them to go fight.

Furthermore -- Vlad the Impaler was actually a hero, as he successfully defended his corner on Europe from the muslim hordes. The whole impaling stuff was the beginning of psychological warfare -- and it was VERY effective.

Boris Yeltsin did not implement free market policies, he implemented the other side of the totalitarian coin -- fascism.

Under Yeltsin, the "free" market ended up being entirely owned by a Russian oligarchy -- conveniently loyal to Yeltsin and "the Party" just like the Italian economy under Benito Mussolini.

Plus, once he had switched the government to essentially a fascist one -- still a totalitarian one -- he resigned and gave the reins to another avowed communist and former KGB member -- Vladimir Putin. Ever hear of him?

Another question -- what do you think of the Daily Beast advocating that corporations sign loyalty oaths to Obama?

Does your feeble mind understand that is a play out of the Italian Fascist book?
