WRH Thought for the day

I just noted today's WRH Thought For The Day.

In order for an act to be a crime, libertarians say, someone must be harmed [and?] there must be a victim. Anything that's peaceful, voluntary, and honest should be tolerated regardless of whether we agree with it. Part of the price of our own freedom is allowing others to be free. - Scott Banister, www.libertarian.org

I do not know Scott Banister the woeful grammarian.

But this little aphorist whirligig is typical Libertarian tripe that fails at even the most rudimentary of logical levels.

The Bailout's Hubris to Nowhere

I awoke this morning with a question in my mind that seemed important. I noted it.

I then read about the $20bn overnight bailout of Citigroup Bank.

My overnight question nagged me more for an answer.

FREE Garikoitz Aspiazu !

Garikoitz Aspiazu, aka "Txeroki", is a fighter in the movement for an independent Basque nation.

Out of expediency Garikoitz Aspiazu is being treated as a civil prisoner when he is clearly a political prisoner.

The slimeball Sarkozy is bragging he caught him.

Spanish Prime Minister Zapatero, doesn't care who caught Garikoitz Aspiazu. He just wants to cut his balls off and stuff them in his mouth.

Face it. You've got to either put up, or shut up in this world.

Bald Boomers, and The Hubris of the American Oligarch in the Age of Obama

This site has a plethora of Libertarian posters that serve up libations to the reading public. Where are they?

They have failed to point out that two bald Boomers have seized control of everyone’s economic prospects.

The Age of the American Entrepreneur has been eclipsed by The Age of the Bailouts.

What does this mean for the makeup of American society and the future of everyone’s children who will inherit it?

Muslim Children Gassed at Dayton Mosque

According to fire dispatch communications, a child reported seeing two men with a white can spraying something into a window. That child was brought to the supervising firefighter at the scene.

The 300 or so inside were celebrating the last 10 days of Ramadan with dinner and a prayer session, but the prayer session was interrupted so those suffering from tearing, coughing and shortness of breath could receive treatment.

Treasury Pulled $700 billion price tag out of Thin Air

From GoergeWashingtonblogspot

Treasury Pulled the Number Out of Thin Air

You know the $700 billion price tag of the proposed bailout? Treasury pulled that number out of thin air.

As Forbes writes:

In fact, some of the most basic details, including the $700 billion figure Treasury would use to buy up bad debt, are fuzzy.

"It's not based on any particular data point," a Treasury spokeswoman told Forbes.com Tuesday. "We just wanted to choose a really large number."
