Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

Well, if they're free, I might as well take two. . .

Scalpel writes a superb analogy as to how government subsidies ruin it for everybody... even (eventually) those on the dole. His arena? Medical care.

HOT Damn...even the cops are getting in on the bandwagon about the distress in the "bargain basement."

Public awareness is coming forth...

Don't joggle my elbow, Missy; I was pro-libertarian before libertarian was kewl. Think of me as Billy Mac from Steve Miller's "Take The Money And Run"; I make my livin' off other people's taxes, but I ain't gonna let 'em escape justice.

If I could figure out a way to do it without using citizens' taxes, I would. Trust me.

But I was FURIOUS at the Raich v. Ashcroft SCOTUS ruling-- there are places that the Fed needs not to meddle. Subsidies (like Wickard) are one. Provide for the "social welfare," sure. But not through subsidies. And don't claim "interstate comerce"; it's specious.
