You're such a bore...

I don't blame you, I don't think it's your fault.

Instead of being taught to think, it seems like you were taught to feel and intuit based on your feelings.

But I don't even blame you for accepting such teaching as truth and reality and right thinking, because I understand that you were never taught to take control of your lizard brain.


Wait, I'm lizard now?  So who's Opposition?

The "War On Drugs" is a scam for funneling taxpayer's money into Law enforcement and Anti-Drug public service announcements which benefit the networks that play them.

Just another "progressive" scheme to redistribute taxpayer's wealth.

The DEA and all the other alphabet agencies all claim that what they spend is essential and that the vast powers they have been granted are necessary to protect our society from the FBI and the CIA... maybe from guys named Weinstein and Soros too.

And really, which would you prefer to have ruling over you? TSA or Hillary?

Edit: Best to mention BATFE too I think. They've added capital letters, where the others haven't.

Could it be as simple as that the guys with control over guns have been gaining more power?

What if the ATF issued regulations that said that no government employee other than civilian police and military personnel may possess or carry firearms... So all the other agencies would have to turn all their weapons over to the BATFE, right?

That's not a half bad idea I think right now...

Yes, they claim it is "essential".    But we know it is not.

Libertarians don't want anyone to rule over us. Self-ownership and self-governance precludes any person (or group of persons) ruling over us.

Makes sense to me!    Smiley

Especially unelected bureaucrats like FAA or DEA personnel.

I'm a Vulcan.

But I'm no more enthusiastic about my own planet than Earth.

People are the same hypocritical pieces of shit wherever you go. They only pretend not to be. Some people just pretend harder than others. Yes, that was meant as a double entendre. No, I apparently can't pretend hard enough.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.
