Yet Another Letter from A.X. Perez

Informal Survey

Here's a thought: like just about everything else in this country, the freedom movement is graying at a horrific rate—faster than it's taking in new members, anyway.

Some years ago I took a whack at a series of books for "young readers", what was meant to be the "MacBear/Lysandra Heptalogy", seven books to teach kids what they need to know to be free. I wrote two books and the publisher lost interest.

Do we have enough children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and neighbors' kids to make it worthwhile to return to this project? And (if you've read Ceres) should I write Julie Segovia Ngu's "Conchita y Desmondo" books for slightly younger readers, as I've always meant to do?

Re: "Letter from Madison MacBear"

Dear Mr. MacBear,

You said:

"Merely removing the 535 plus 9 plus 2 would not solve the problem; indeed, it would only start a host of other problems."

Obviously. Shunning would only work in a relatively free society with a free economy absent "welfare" or government interference in business. We could talk all day about the logistical difficulties.

The point was that hanging would be relatively more kind than any true free society shunning and vastly better than any form of imprisonment.

I have no problem with hanging the lot of them, at every level of "government" right down to the smallest "city council" in the country. If they collect "taxes" and dictate other people's lives, they need to stop it or pay the consequences. Soon...

I don't think many of us would be willing to wait until the idea conditions for shunning were in place anyway. Let the hangings begin!

Watch Your Backs

The last time I had gold to sell it was a couple of tenth ounces back in the eighties. I maybe made three dollars profit on the deal.

Still I do hope to be able to get a hold of a few ounces to stash as soon as i pay for, well a lot of stuff not your business. So it got my attention when I read that the Feds were outlawing the sale of gold and silver (that I work with a little more regularly) effective 15 July 2011. Turns out this ban is mostly aimed at commodity trading by people engaged in buying on margin.

Since any metal I buy is going to be in small quantities, usually coin, cash at the local dealers I figure I'm not affected. Until they pull a 1933 turn it all in or else. Of course, being a law abiding wimp, I will not be holding any precious metals. Honest.

However, if the Big G can ban trading in gold futures, what's to stop them from banning pork bellies bought on margin or speculating in gasoline deliveries for next December?

Just wondering.

Agenda 21—The glorious New Green World Order

UN Agenda 21

James Delingpole is a journalist in the United Kingdom, writing for the Telegraph, and he runs a Web log on his publisher's site, commenting chiefly on politics both foreign and domestic. A longstanding non-scientist skeptic about the anthropogenic global warming (AGW) fraud, in November 2009 his was one of the first mainstream media voices breaking the story of Climategate, a supposed "hacking" of the servers of the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit in order to put before the world at large the materials lawfully requested by inquirers under the U.K. Freedom of Information statutes—and criminally stonewalled by the administration of the C.R.U.

Kinda why that big archive went out with the file title ""

The Libertarian Enterprise maintains constant focus on the United Nation's "Agenda 21," and with that in mind there ought to be interest in one of Mr. Delingpole's recent Web log articles, titled "UN reveals its master plan for destruction of global economy." He puts his point damned well:

...Right now, indeed, it's likely that the United Nations poses a far greater threat to Western Civilisation and the world's economic future than Al Qaeda does. Have a glance at its latest report World Economic And Social Survey 2011—and you'll see what I mean.

What's that saying? "It's not whether you're paranoid, but whether you're paranoid enough."

Ignorant Fool

So Will Bunch at the Huffington Post has stated that Rupert Murdoch creating Fox News in the US is worse than the invasions of privacy carried out by in Britain News of the World.

To him promoting a conservative agenda by cherry picking facts or slanting how they are interpreted to support conservative agenda instead of being neutral (or even leftist) is as bad as actual criminal acts.

His disdain for the First Amendment is all too clear. This twisted interpretation of the First Amendment, that my ideas are protected but my opponents aren't, is common to both the left and right. Which is why we all need decent bullshit detectors.

Not Letting Go Part II

Check out This Link

In case you are wondering why I am so incensed about Gunwalker (which by the way is the nickname given to Fast and Furious when it went sideways in ways unimaginable until you factor in some truly incredible stupidity and malice and separate from Gun Runner, which was still pretty bad) I live in El Paso, Texas, USA. Right now Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico across the Rio Grande has gotten its murder rate, much of it carried out by the people who got guns through Gunwalker, down to about five a day. That's how many murders happened last year in El Paso. We're up to 14 for the year in Chucoville, that's three day slaughter in Juarez.

My Mother's house is bracketed by City Hall and Bell Hall at UT El Paso. Stray bullets from gunfights in Juarez have struck those buildings, and there is no obstruction between Juarez and my Mom's back yard. One of the people in the list this is mailed to works in Bell Hall. I drive along I-10 to and from work every day, right in the area where these stay shots hit, much of it where there is nothing between me and Mexico. Kids living in El Paso have been killed visiting relatives in Juarez.

Were the bullets that struck in EP fired from Gunwalker weapons? If anyone gets killed in the Sunset Heights and Segundo Barrio neighborhoods or driving along I-10 in that area will it be by Gunwalker weapons? Will my kin and students be shot with Gunwalker weapons?

I started commenting on the problems in Juarez vis a vis the safest city status El Paso enjoys to show that Mexico's strict gun laws don't work and that the easy availability of guns in Texas does. Now I find out that at least part of the problem is that the American Department of Justice and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives was providing weapons to murderers and extortionists in Mexico, and very possibly with the intent of ginning up evidence to put stricter gun regulations in place in the US or at least along the border, i.e. restrictions specifically aimed at my rights.

So if I seem obsessed on this now you know why.
