Don’t have a lot right now

Sorry; I don’t have a lot for you right now. I have a lot going on. Just not a lot to say. I’m feeling a lot in common with Firehand, yet at the same time (and in total contradiction) would love to ponder and elaborate upon this intriguing observation from Instapundit. But I’m not gonna. Maybe it’s Commentariat fodder?

Mostly, I’m deadlining today and maybe into tomorrow morning. But I will be back.

Meanwhile, friend Joel has the best blog post of the week, maybe of the month, maybe the year, with some damnfine comments on it as well.

    Yes, equal protection seems to be violated by inequality of enforcement… then all the LEO loopholes…

    Somehow we need to ELIMINATE the whole separate ‘law enforcement’ social class. The badge should be carried by US citizens, while today, in a court of law, it is abundantly clear that these people are not mere garden variety citizens.

    All law enforcement activity should be conducted within the limits of the law. No open carry in your state? No open carry for cops. No concealed carry? Same deal. Can I shoot my neighbors dog because I felt threatened by it after breaking and entering? No? Oh, and breaking and entering is illegal? Hmm….

    As long as we are talking about bringing cops back down to the level of the rest of us plebs I vote we also do the same to that permanent class of elitist in D.C. who also live a life of privilege the rest of us can’t imagine just because they can lie, cheat, and steal better than the rest of us.

    I agree, that post by Joel was great! I saved a copy of it to give me a reminder of what is important when I am having a rough day.

    Joel has great stuff often and the latest is marvelous. If you didn’t see the video of the bears, you missed a classic. Scroll down and play that. I almost never play videos because I can’t hear voices, but I’m glad I saw this one. What a joy. And the music is simply perfect!!!

    Don’t sweat it Claire. I’ve been delaying on reading some books because I too have recently gotten that “I’m tired and achy and fairly sick” feeling, and quite frankly, I’ve been having too much fun watching old Star Trek episodes (all series’). It was when I was actually enjoying myself reading Wikipedia articles on megascale engineering and space colonization that I realized I wouldn’t mind being a Loonie (Heinlein reference, by the way).

    Perhaps Kokesh had a point that technology will push the case for liberty forward than anything else, although I think Molyneux was more correct in his assertion that “our” morality needs to catch up with “our” technology.

    I can relate to Joel’s ideas. This is kind of a man thing; I remember talking with other guys about (intentionally) quitting our conventional job and going out doing something like that. Hell I even now spend time looking at the tiny house movement. But Joel’s post also reminds me of this:

    I guess there are a few women out there who would go for this. But not many…

    Have folks read this cop classic?
    I don’t care much about the constitutional bit, but the historical background is well worth looking at.

    Yep, I read ARE COPS CONSTITUTIONAL? years ago. I particularly liked the part about it being Wyatt Earp’s job to repair the sidewalks.

    Now I’m trying not to imagine a modern, full scale, no-knock, SWAT assault on the sidewalks. Smashed thumbs all around, just to start…

    For me, it’s that I’ve gotten to the point where we’ve said it, already. Just when am I or anyone else for that matter gonna do something? And what is it we shall do?

    Probably when the system (maybe in the form of a cop who got out of the wrong side of bed that morning) decides to war on you. It’s all individual. Ready yourself.
