Label Worship

Maybe it’s just me, but I have always loved the Atlantic records label. The colors are striking, and perhaps there is a bit of reminiscing going on everytime I see that label. It reminds me of my old Ray Charles or Led Zeppelin 45s (that I used to collect), I suppose. As I got ready [...]

The Logisitics of Private vs Public

From the Washington Post: In Brookhaven, Miss., for example, where Wal-Mart operates a vast distribution center, the company had 45 trucks full of goods loaded and ready for delivery before Katrina made landfall. To keep operating near capacity, Wal-Mart secured a special line at a nearby gas station to ensure that its employees could make [...]

Lessons in Market Anarchism

But it is true that the worst failures of the past two weeks have been big government failures. The biggest successes, by contrast, have come out of this country’s incredibly vibrant, amazingly diverse and fantastically generous civil society. Sooner or later, it will be impossible not to draw political lessons from that paradox. Small-government, non-anarchist [...]

Martial Law

There are National Guard, police and Army checkpoints every few blocks. SWAT teams, soldiers and military squads from as far away as Puerto Rico patrol the downtown streets, stopping anyone they see. The units often do not appear to know what the others are doing. It is essentially martial law in the Big Easy, and [...]

No joke. Someone has further deified Bush. What utter sickness.

The Police State

Let new Orleans be an indicator of what is to come for America. As this audio proves, their guns are “bigger than your guns,” and by golly, they’ll let you know it. As residents tried to stay armed and at home, in order to protect such treasures as their antebellum mansions, police state droids are [...]

A Pile of Bloody Shit, for Sure

Another clueless dipshit on the State and saving marriage. There is another approach that I believe has a better prospect of improving both children’s chances and probably at least an equal chance of increasing the viability of marriages or marriage-like arrangements. By directing more resources to low-income children regardless of the family form they live [...]

A Pile of Leninist Shit

The objective of the imperialist system of today as in the past is to open up peripheral economies to investment from the core capitalist countries, thus ensuring both a continual supply of raw materials at low prices, and a net outflow of economic surplus from periphery to center of the world system. In addition, the [...]
