Proudly Conservative

blondmisanthrope:

I don’t care about naked celebrities.

Anyone dumb enough to take naked pictures of themselves is more than asking for it.

If you have to take off your clothes to offer something, you aren’t bringing much to the table.

I would much rather see politicians bank accounts. Or sealed records becoming unsealed.

Yeah can we just get Lois Lerner’s emails or Barack’s college records? Who cares about exposed actors, just give me some exposed politicians.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

If you couldn't pick a current member of the Supreme Court, who would be your favorite member of the Supreme Court or in your opinion the greatest justice in the history of that institution?

I suppose it is a cross between these two:

I’m not a fan of the Supreme Court though.

Surely it’s not that government stifles progress, holds people in poverty, invades privacy, wastes enormous amounts of money, regulates businesses into oblivion, attacks religious liberty, and erodes personal liberty. No, it’s just that “cynical geniuses” in the Republican party have tricked…

Love me! Love your government! Ask no questions and be content.

Instead of linking directly to the drivel at Salon, here’s Steven Hayward over at the great Powerline Blog.

There are days when I wonder whether Salon is for real, or whether it’s an elaborate gag, similar to the theory that all of Paul Krugman’s and Tom Friedman’s columns are actually written by a bunch of madcap interns at the Heritage Foundation wondering how long it will take New York Times readers to figure out.

We’ve commented here before about how Uber, the app-based car service, is catching on and roiling the comfortable taxi cartels in city after city. A few taxi operators have actually been cleaning up their cars, and giving extra training to their drivers to be more polite and customer friendly. Funny how competition does that sometimes. Of course, Uber is not the only app-based car service start up; Uber is now facing stiff competition from Lyft.

Today Salon outdoes itself with “Why Uber Must Be Stopped.” Be sure to take in the artwork nearby of how they understand the story pictured nearby, but also savor the indignation that Uber and Lyft might stoop to unscrupulous practices to gain a competitive edge over each other:

And Progressives want us to be more like the UK…

This is why we need to do the opposite of whatever Europe is doing. The founders had that idea completely right.

I feel bad for people who still believe in man-made global warming. I really do.

More people carrying guns does not prevent gun violence any more than a room full of fire extinguishers can prevent a building from catching fire.

I believe the analogy would be “more people carrying guns does not prevent gun violence any more than a room full of people carrying fire extinguishers can prevent a building from catching fire;” and in which case I would say it is very reasonable that a room full of people with fire extinguishers could prevent a building from catching on fire.  Hell, one person with a fire extinguisher can prevent a building from catching on fire.  That’s the very purpose of the fire extinguisher.

But thank you for your attempt in cleverness.  It’s good that people like yourself have moved from “guns are bad because they’re scary” to attempting to use analogies to prove your point.  It’s a big step.

It is only under this law of justice that mankind will achieve — slowly, no doubt, but certainly — God’s design for the orderly and peaceful progress of humanity.

It seems to me that this is theoretically right, for whatever the question under discussion — whether religious, philosophical, political, or economic; whether it concerns prosperity, morality, equality, right, justice, progress, responsibility, cooperation, property, labor, trade, capital, wages, taxes, population, finance, or government — at whatever point on the scientific horizon I begin my researches, I invariably reach this one conclusion: The solution to the problems of human relationships is to be found in liberty.
