The Journey of My Life and Its Future: An Open Plea to My Fellow Libertarians and My Friends

todd-andrew-barnett-3May 1993. Who thought it would have been so long ago and how long it took for me to evolve into the human being that I am today? Who thought it would take 23 years for me to reach a state where I am a different person than I was in the spring of 1993 when I graduated from Anchor Bay High School on Sugarbush Road.* (*Note: It’s now Anchor Bay Middle School South on that road.) And no, I’m not talking about the Anchor Bay High School that’s on County Line – the one that was built in 1999 when Chesterfield Township voters – who have always been the school district’s electorate – passed a $116 million bond proposal to build a new high school and upgrade the old building so that it could become a middle school. I’m talking about my old high school, which I began attending in the fall of 1989 and graduated in early 1993.

For the most part, except for a skin disease with which I struggled throughout the rest of my childhood up though my young adult years and my weight problems, I was (and still am) an obese man. I had developed some minor health issues over the years, but nothing life threatening…….up until now.

From after February 11, 2011 (the day my father James M. Barnett passed away from cirrhosis of the liver, which predated 20 years before) up until November 22, 2016 today, I had developed a number of health issues such as Type 2 diabetes, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpora (ITP, which is a blood clotting disorder, resulting in a significant loss of platelets in my blood needed to clot my blood normally), neuropathy, hepatic encephalopathy and encephalopathy (both of which is caused by non-alcoholic stage 4 cirrhosis of the liver, which is what I have), high blood pressure, an open leg wound which is nearly healed and a number of other problems that would take a while to explain. That needs to be treated with a pharmaceutical called Lactulose which removes toxic ammonia from my bloodstream; otherwise, I’d be in a hepatic coma. Stage 4 is the final stage in which liver failure results, which means I have constant fatigue, diarrhea, and at times vomiting, although the good news for me is that at my young age, if I lose enough weight and eat very healthy constantly, I improve my chances to receive a healthy new liver. Yes, I can have a liver transplant…..but only if I act fast and lose this weight.

Why? It’s simple. I’m going to say this once and *ONLY* once: I have two years to live. That’s right. I only have two years to live, according to my gastroenterologist Dr. Gurpreet Singh who’s a resident in the Henry Ford Health System.

It scares me a lot. I’ve tried many diets and many things to lose weight, and none of them seem to work. I am, however, open to dietary and nutritious suggestions for extremely healthy eating that will re-energize my wellness and my ability to live far, far longer than I ever thought possible.

I am not afraid to die, but I am afraid of how I’m dying.

I am reaching out to my colleagues in the libertarian movement. I need help with suggestions. I don’t want my life to end like this. I need all the support I can get. If any of you have any suggestions, please tell me. Liver healthy and weight loss recipes and exercise suggestions would make all the difference in the world.

To my fellow libertarian Wiccans and Pagans: please cast some healing, energy, and life-saving spells for me. Herbs and homeopathic remedies to aid in the healing of my mind, body, and spirit…..as well as my liver…..would be most welcome. I’ve never asked anyone for anything, because I don’t like to beg for welfare and help, but I don’t know exactly how much time I have. I want to live. I want to find love. I want to be successful.

My journey faces an epilogue the likes of which I never pondered. I’m not expecting sympathy and empathy, but I am expecting some compassion….or at least some morsel of it.

Please help me. I don’t mean to beg, but I must. I need all the support that I can muster. I need all the support.

When my father passed away on February 11, 2016, it made me face my own mortality. Now my mortality faces me, and I’m staring right back at it. If I die, and I hope one day I will face that time, it will be on my own terms, not on Death’s terms and not on the gods and goddesses. It will be my own.

Help me find the new meaning of my life. I’m not asking for money, but if you see me, hug me, laugh with me, pray for me, cast spells for me, and be there for me and with me. That’s all that I can expect from you. It’s all anyone can expect.

Most of all, be my friend, because I feel alone, and in my own darkest hour, I face it.

Dr. Singh says that there are presently 70,000 livers in the U.S. alone. Out of that stock only 7,000 are granted to new liver transplant patients. If I need a liver transplant, I need it sooner rather than later.

If I need to smoke marijuana, and I’m not desperate to break the law regarding that but I’m desperate to try anything including that, then I will pursue it. No government, no doctor, no bureaucracy, no insurance company – that is, *NO ONE* – has the right to decide whether I live or die. I decide that, and I choose to live. And I will fight this illness to the very end, no matter what it takes.

Will anyone do this for me? I hope so, and I’m relying on you to help me no matter the cost.

Leave the light on. We’re gonna need to use it to see it. It’s better to see where we are than to be blind in a room which we can’t see with our own eyes.

I’m in this all the way. Are you?

Bill Weld Not Only Shills for Hillary Clinton, But He Also Betrays Libertarians and The Libertarian Party

bill-weld-pic-1

Libertarian vice-presidential candidate Bill Weld, a running mate for Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson and the better half of the Johnson-Weld presidential campaign, ignited a scathing ruckus within the Libertarian Party by stating that he “vouches” for Hillary Clinton, given the fact that he has held a great deal of respect, admiration, and love for Hillary, and all those things have been absolutely apparent. This was on the heels of last week’s campaign statement by Weld in which he stated the following:

bill-welds-october-25th-statement-part-1-clip-1-10-25-2016-11-03-2016 bill-welds-october-25th-statement-part-2-clip-2-10-25-2016-11-03-2016 bill-welds-october-25th-statement-part-3-clip-3-10-25-2016-11-03-2016

Of course this was met with disgust by a number of Libertarians, including Jill Pyeatt of the Independent Political Report who was disgusted with his tone which according to her sounded like he was “giving up” and he was “kind of” endorsing Clinton.

iprs-comments-on-bill-weld-part-1-clip-1-10-25-2016-11-03-2016

After that Jill wrote the next following statement:

iprs-comments-on-bill-weld-part-2-clip-2-10-25-2016-11-03-2016

Of course, blogger and longtime on-again, off-again Libertarian activist Thomas L. Knapp of KN@PPSTER and founder of The William Lloyd Garrison Center for Libertarian Advocacy Journalism, as exemplified in the first screenshot above, took Pyeatt to task for her comments on her disillusionment with, dismissal of, and turning her back on the campaign because of Weld’s ludicrous statements. Pyeatt and Tom responded back and forth to each other, with other commenters including George Phillies, a longtime Libertarian member and activist, commenting in the thread as well.

Here are the following screenshots to prove them:

iprs-comments-on-bill-weld-part-3-clip-3-10-25-2016-11-03-2016 iprs-comments-on-bill-weld-part-4-clip-4-10-25-2016-11-03-2016 iprs-comments-on-bill-weld-part-5-clip-5-10-25-2016-11-03-2016 iprs-comments-on-bill-weld-part-6-clip-6-10-25-2016-11-03-2016 iprs-comments-on-bill-weld-part-7-clip-7-10-25-2016-11-03-2016 iprs-comments-on-bill-weld-part-8-clip-8-10-25-2016-11-03-2016 iprs-comments-on-bill-weld-part-9-clip-9-10-25-2016-11-03-2016

Of course, the campaign went to correct the media’s attention on this as they believed that the mainstream liberal statist media was spinning Weld’s statements to make them sound like he was rooting for Clinton to win.

johnson-weld-campaign-attacks-democratic-media-machine-part-1-clip-1-10-26-2016-11-04-2016 johnson-weld-campaign-attacks-democratic-media-machine-part-2-clip-2-10-26-2016-11-04-2016

The Libertarian Republic, which happens to be Libertarian activist and former Libertarian presidential candidate Austin Petersen‘s hottest libertarian news and commentary site, went on the defensive as well with the following:

the-libertarian-republic-initially-defends-bill-welds-statements-intro-clip-0-10-26-2016-11-04-2016 the-libertarian-republic-initially-defends-bill-welds-statements-clip-10-26-2016-11-04-2016

Sadly but truthfully the “statist liberal Democratic media machine” was right. Why were they right? Because, as opined by Brett Chandrashekhar on TLR, Weld is campaigning for Hillary.

Laura Meyers):

Soon after that a notice on Facebook by Carlos Sierra in the AZ for Gary Johnson Facebook Discussion Group appeared as the following:

gary-johnsons-campaign-manager-ron-nielson-defends-bill-welds-pro-hillary-statements-clip-only-11-02-2016-11-04-2016I took the liberty of dialing that number and the access, and, with my phone muted, the following discussion was made. The entire time Johnson campaign manager Ron Nielson and his motley crew of cronies didn’t waste any time making excuses for Weld, as he urged everyone to “see the big picture” and the ruckus was “a miscalculation.”



Johnson appears on Fox Business’ Kennedy to justify Weld’s demeanor on the talk show circuit:

Here are the interview appearances of Johnson on Fox Business‘ Kennedy show, in which he tries to portray a positive picture of what happened on CNN‘s New Day with Alisyn Cameroa and MSNBC‘s The Rachel Maddow Show:

Because of what Bill Weld said on the TV circuit, any chance of the LP getting 5% from the national ticket at the state level will never come to pass. This incident has proved one thing: Weld is a disgrace to the Party. He’s shilling for Clinton. He doesn’t give a damn about the Libertarian Party and/or even any of the members who are a part of the activist base in there. He’s the reason why the Party will never get anywhere – not today and not tomorrow, not even in the far future. As long as we as members of the Party keep churning out candidates like this, it will always be doomed to fail.

The Libertarian Party, because of what happened, might as well drop the ‘Party of Principle’ moniker because that principle is rather pretty homeless these days. The Party that was the home of radicals, purists, and David Nolan is now a shadow of its former self.

Weld is a turncoat in the eyes of many Libertarians. And that’s the sad, unfortunate reality that has become endemic of this political organization. It’s hard *NOT* to notice this fact, and it’s maddening to think otherwise.

The Party needs to decide what kind of a Party it wants to be. Does it want to be a Party so that it will house the hearts, minds, and souls of the member base that is ideologically pure libertarian, or does it want to be a Party so that it will operate as a statist, collectivistic entity to dilute and eviscerate its own principles, not to mention its rules, so that it can and will become a corrupt third major party?

We all might as well be tyrants, and I mean the Raspin and Ghengis Khan kind.

Leave a light on for tyranny, social engineering, and an autocratic society, right? Yup, yup, yup.

This blog piece is dedicated to Michelle “Shelly” Gregoire who has just left the Libertarian Party due to what William Weld has done and how many of  his apologists have treated her and what they said to her. This piece is a hat tip to her.

Gay Cultural Libertarian and Trump Supporter Milo Yiannopoulos Finally Admits to The Nation That He Isn’t Really A Libertarian

milo-yiannopoulos-on-cnbc

Gay “cultural libertarian” and Donald Trump backer Milo Yiannopoulos, who has been a very controversial figure in many prominent leftist and limousine liberal circles as well as many Democratic-supporting groups that champion political correctness, gender feminism, and the lethal social justice warrior movement, has come out to The Nation‘s D.D. Guttanplan that he isn’t really a libertarian at all. Libertarians, anarcho-capitalists, and anarchists have suspected this all along, and for someone like Yiannopoulos to cop to this is surprising, because up until now he has finally confessed to something that has been an albatross around his neck.

Guttanplan showcases Yiannopoulos’ answer on Libertarians and my political movement and party’s ideology by stating questions to Yiannopoulos who in return replied to him in the following:

What about the Libertarians?

What about them?

Are they not an acceptable alternative?

No. They’re a joke.

Why?

Libertarians are children. Libertarians are people who have given up looking for an answer. This whole “everybody do what they want” is code for “leave me to do what I want.” It’s selfish and childish. It’s an admission that you have given up trying to work out what a good society would look like, how the world should be ordered and instead just retreated back into selfishness. That’s why they’re so obsessed with weed, Bitcoin, and hacking.

I always thought those were the most attractive things about them.

Maybe so, but that’s why you can’t take them seriously. It’s all introspective and insular and selfish.

Here’s the entire Nation interview with Yiannopoulos:

the-nations-interview-with-milo-yiannopoulos-part-1-clip-1-10-16-2016

Let me address Yiannopoulos’s objectionable point he raised at one point during his interview, specifically the part where he claims Libertarians, and that would put me into the same column along with many of my fabulous and wonderful capital (L) Libertarians and lower-case (l) libertarians, that we are “a joke”:

Libertarians are children. Libertarians are people who have given up looking for an answer. This whole “everybody do what they want” is code for “leave me to do what I want.” It’s selfish and childish. It’s an admission that you have given up trying to work out what a good society would look like, how the world should be ordered and instead just retreated back into selfishness. That’s why they’re so obsessed with weed, Bitcoin, and hacking.

Really, Yiannopoulos? So we’re “a joke” to you, all because we’re “selfish and childish,” right? We’re all just, according to your nihilistic and narcissistic British gay ass, “obsessed with weed, Bitcoin, and hacking”? Yes, we do want to legalize weed, and no, not all Libertarians and libertarians are into Bitcoin, although many of my ilk do like that digital currency.

Hacking? No, that’s wrong, because that would principally and cardinally be the equivalent of stealing someone’s set of keys and unlocking and going into that individual’s car and driving off into the sunset (a la stealing it) without telling the car owner what you plan to do with his or her property.

Another good analogy would be is this: that would be like taking that same set of keys and using one of the unused keys and unlocking and entering that individual’s home and stealing his or her TVs, his or her Blu-Ray players, and his or her kitchen plates. That would also include his or her Corona Light beer, most of his or her recent grocery store-bought limes, his or her clothes found in one of the bedroom closets, and his or her credit cards, checks, and cash. Then that thief would put ’em all in his or her car and driving off into the sunset after leaving the house unlocked and without bothering to tell the original owners that you were at their home.

No, we don’t hack into other people’s computers. That’s a violation of private property rights. The government’s property? That might be a different story, because the State can hack into our computers and record and listen to us all the time. But we don’t do that to people who are undeserving of that. We are better than that.

It’s an admission that you have given up trying to work out what a good society would look like, how the world should be ordered and instead just retreated back into selfishness.

No, it’s not “an admission” of anything. We “haven’t given up trying to work out what a good society would look like” because that’s tantamount to social engineering, and we are not trying to engineer – meaning mold or model society – into whatever we want it to be. We want to free individuals from the State, and live and let live. We want people to be free – free of tyranny, free of control, free of taxation, free of regulation, free of central planning, free of the State’s never-ending spending sprees, free of state-imposed debt and deficits, and free of Keynesian economics.

It is about returning to true autonomy of the individual, true free(d) markets,  true minimal government, repeal of state-imposed taxation and spending, true market regulations, true market mechanisms, and Austrian economics. It’s about allowing the individual to pursue his dreams and endeavors without the permission of the State and enabling entrepreneurs and free enterprises to flourish without their need to look over their own shoulders and see whether the guns of the State will thwart their very own-self interests. That’s what *REAL* individualism and liberty are all about, not the other way around.

In our world we don’t need order. The State leaving us alone to our own devices and allowing us to learn from our own failures and our mistakes are what make us all human in the end. It’s not our job to ensure “what a good society would look like.” Human beings are not cattle to be herded, not robots to be controlled with a remote control, and so on. We are not automatons. We are human beings with our own interests and desires to seek our own individual and own sovereign dreams, wishes, and desires.

So what if we are “selfish”? Yes, we are selfish. Human beings by their own nature are selfish organic entities. So what’s your point? You are selfish too, Milo, and you know it. You are selfish because, rather than carrying on with your life to further your own individual desires without the sheer brute power of force, you want to use coercion on other people to get and have your own way. That’s your brand of selfish. You are vain, narcissistic, and a nihilist, and that makes you more dangerous than political correctness and social justice warriors combined.

I oppose political correctness, and I despise social justice warriors. But I oppose and despise narcissistic, nihilistic, and vain people who love themselves so much that they must forcefully impose that need for adulation onto other people to get what they want. Libertarians like me are not interested in that, and we shouldn’t be interested at all. That’s not what attracts me to libertarianism.

What attracts me to that movement and to the Libertarian Party….is liberty.

T.J. Brown a.k.a. That Guy T of FEE furnishes his report on his friend Yiannopoulos with the following piece:

taleed-t-j-brown-of-fee-org-on-milo-yiannopoulos-comments-on-libertarians-part-1-clip-1-10-20-2016 taleed-t-j-brown-of-fee-org-on-milo-yiannopoulos-comments-on-libertarians-part-2-clip-2-10-20-2016 taleed-t-j-brown-of-fee-org-on-milo-yiannopoulos-comments-on-libertarians-part-3-clip-3-10-20-2016 taleed-t-j-brown-of-fee-org-on-milo-yiannopoulos-comments-on-libertarians-part-4-clip-4-10-20-2016Taleed is right, and Milo is wrong. We do “want to do what we want” because, as Taleed correctly notes, it’s “within the bounds of respecting individual and property rights.” Absolutely the government “should have little to no authority to dictate what person does with their own person or property.” And absolutely Brexit vote to abandon the European Union (EU) was a resounding success!

Yiannopoulos is still stuck in that quaint old British new world order school of thought which suggests that a hodgepodge of nationalism. jingoism, xenophobia, mercantilism (which also signifies protectionism), feudalism, and a vibrant, euphemistic fetishism for a blending of militarism and economic fascism are the central core of a regimented economy and society, because enterprises and individuals of all stripes must be conditioned to worship the State the Donald Trump way. If everyone subscribes to his mindset, which is just as lethal and politically correct as the left that he claims about, he would command a great deal of power of the minds of every individual than he would deserve at the very least.

The fact that he is a renowned public speaker, journalist, entrepreneur, and an uproariously offensive social media darling in the alt-right world is an understatement. It is also an understatement to say that he employs his conservesque brand of political correctness so that all individuals would exemplify the “ordered society” for which he terribly craves.

Yiannopoulos’ Ban from Twitter and the Reasons Why It Happened

What is not an understatement is the fact that he has had his  Twitter account @Nero’s blue badge confiscated by the company and has been banned on Twitter because he harassed Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones by calling her “a black dude” and that she was “barely literate.”

Here are some of the screen shots that chronicle what followed:

milo-yiannopoulos-attacks-leslie-jones-part-1-07-20-2016 milo-yiannopoulos-attacks-leslie-jones-part-2-07-20-2016 milo-yiannopoulos-attacks-leslie-jones-part-3-07-20-2016 milo-yiannopoulos-attacks-leslie-jones-part-4-07-20-2016Of course Jones responded:

What people don’t know is that Yiannopoulos either employed a fake Twitter generator and used Jones account handle @Lesdoggg to create fake tweet or shared them with everyone on the site, making it look like she was employing a homophobic tweet against Milo.

Here’s one of the tweets in question:

One other tweet that Milo had faked was this one (which was actually a collection of two tweets rolled into one):

milos-tweet-clip-1

Here’s another fact to point out here: after Yiannopoulos was banned from the site, conservatives and many members of the alt-right community on the site feed crafted a new hashtag: #FreeMilo.

Here are a slew of conservative and libertarian Twitter users who acted out against the company for its censorship tactics:

and finally,

The reason for Milo’s Twitter ban is obviously: he did harass Jones, especially while he resorted to name-calling. While Jones herself isn’t exactly a Girl Scout herself given that she’s had a racist history evidenced on her account, she didn’t deserve the trolling and the fake account using her name bullshit which she was forced to endure.Yiannopoulos *INDEED* violated the site’s policies. How, you ask? Well, there are three rules of free speech that no one with a pulse worth their salt should *EVER* break:

  1. Never directly threat someone via Twitter or any social media platform as it is not protected by the First Amendment.
  2. Never slander someone on Twitter or any social media platform as it is not protected by the First Amendment.
  3. Never libel someone via Twitter or any social media platform as it is not protected by the First Amendment.

Did Milo directly threaten Jones on Twitter? No, he did not.

Did Milo slander Jones on Twitter? No, he did not.

Did Milo libel Jones on Twitter? Yes, he did *JUST* that.

He broke one of the three cardinal tenets of free speech: you never slander anyone by falsely attributing statements that the other writer didn’t write. If anything, it’s unethical, immoral, and it’s not even protected by the First Amendment. And it’s antithetical to everything that we hold dear in our hearts.

If anything, Leslie Jones has a legal case that she can pursue against Yiannopoulos, and with that evidence available, it’s very likely that she’ll win, and Milos would have no choice but to agree to a hefty settlement. That would be a grand price to pay.

Although I initially defended Milo over his right to free speech, I should’ve realized then that he would never defend your right to free speech as he is politically correct himself and he must be defending Trump who promises to open up the libel laws against anyone who makes a truthful claim about him, right or wrong.

It’s about time Milo states that he is *NOT* a libertarian. After all, we are talking about someone who refers to Trump as “Daddy.” He is a conservative statist who wants liberty for himself but no one else.

As libertarian and Libertarian activist Avens O’Brien recently noted on Milo due to the release of the Libertarian Republic‘s published article on him:

avens-obrien-on-milo-yiannopoulos-clip-1-10-23-2016

And, as Gary Johnson and Libertarian activist supporter Krystle Berger quips:

krystal-bergers-comment-on-milo-on-my-facebook-wall-clip-1-10-24-2016

I just wish other libertarians and conservatives who flock to and love him would see that clearly for once.

Former Libertarian National Committee At-Large Representative Wayne Allyn Root To Being Libertarian’s Mike Brokamp: Voting Libertarian “Is A Wasted Vote”

Wayne Allyn Root's February 22nd Trump Rally Opening Speech
Wayne Allyn Root’s February 22nd Trump Rally Opening Speech

Former 2008 Libertarian vice presidential contender, former Libertarian National Committee At-Large Representative, and current Republican crony backing Donald Trump Wayne Allyn Root was interviewed by  “libertarian” blog site Being Libertarian‘s Mike Brokamp to talk about why a vote for a Libertarian presidential candidate (such as Gary Johnson) and/or any other Libertarian candidate “is a wasted vote” and his support for Trump.

It’s not a surprise that Root is on the air spewing this nonsense. After all, he began supporting the Mitt Romney for President 2012 campaign while serving in his capacity as an LNC At-Large Representative and founded and headed the Libertarian National Campaign Committee (which was previously launched as the Libertarian National Congressional Committee with the national elections-registered entity Federal Elections Commission). Party insiders and leaders including Mike Blessing. then-state chair (but now currently District 1 Representative of the Libertarian Party of New Mexico, were concerned that Root at the time had been working for then-GOP presidential candidate Romney to fight Obama’s re-election bid for his second term as POTUS in 2012. (Root had left the LP later to ally himself with the Romney campaign and also run as a U.S. Senate contender and return to the GOP as a Republican. He never did run for that seat, but he left the LP, the LNC, and the LNCC to pledge his fealty to the GOP and to Romney.)

Here’s what Blessing wrote in his exclusive letter to the Independent Political Report (IPR) website:

Politically Correct Feminist/Social Justice Warrior Named Susan D’Angelo and the Impersonality of Texting: The Demonization of Calling People on Facebook Messenger

Politically Correct Feminist/Social Justice Warrior Susan D'Angelo and Facebook Sucks Pic

I’m going to come out and just say it. I don’t like texting. I’ve come to that conclusion about a while back, perhaps months ago or perhaps a year ago. Does it really matter when I’ve reached this forgone conclusion? I guess I’m old-fashioned when it comes to speaking with people, even people whom I don’t know. Not that I’m trying to be their collective best friend in the world, but I do enjoy some small talk and some decent conversation in the real world.

My hatred of texting occurs mainly on Facebook and Twitter, considering it’s the only way to communicate with people who live thousands of miles away. It’s become the next step-up from email, which debuted in the mid 1990s. First, the old-fashioned way of writing a letter with a pen and scribbling your thoughts on a sheet of paper was the standard way back when I was a child up to 1995, two years after I graduated from high school. Then it was email and going on America Online. Before you know it, Yahoo! Chat, and writing on forums. Before you know it, Facebook, MySpace (which only lasted in popularity for a few years), and later Twitter debuted. (MySpace as of today is now a shadow of its former self, but that’s not the point, is it?)

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t mind technology. But technology isn’t the point. Facebook is my focus for a legitimate reason. It has its uses. It allows us to evolve into a place that no one has ever had done before, and efficiency in society and in our lives runs rampant and without absolute question.

As for Facebook, yes, you get to meet new people online, get to know them, and establish some kind of cyber-based rapport with them. You get to create pages and groups, and you get to discuss all kinds of things – from religion to politics to your favorite drinks and foods. You get to show your cute dog and cat and kids photos, make movie and restaurant recommendations to friends, and things of that sort. There was a time when Faceboo was primarily about making great connections with all sorts of people, and those were the good old days when Facebook started out in its early years.

Thus those are the top advantages of it.

However, it also has its drawbacks (which I will detail adequately on here), and yet no one wants to point them out. Some of the drawbacks of that technology, especially when you also have Facebook Messenger, can include the following (social media can either be your best friend or your worst nightmare!).

  1. Auto-correct. I hate auto-correct. When you’re typing out a word on Facebook, your phone thinks you might mean this one other word that you don’t intend to use. It uses it in place of the word you were striving to use, thus making your message nonsensical, illogical, and downright moronic. Your sentence “This fruit is organic, not conventional” might be changed to something like “This fruit is orgy, not conventional” or some stupid crap like that. Anytime you use a word on your phone, some other word your phone chooses for you especially on Facebook throws off your intended statement, transforming into a message that you didn’t want to convey.
  2. The Impersonality of Speaking with Users. One of my pet peeves on Facebook, whether people like it or not, is the impersonality of the users who convey their messages to other people. To be honest, Facebook sucks. It’s like high school on the site, and people take sides all the time with every debate team fired up and acting very combative, confrontational, belligerent, condescending, and insulting along the way. That’s the problem with texting on Facebook, even on Messenger – people *ONLY* want to talk on Facebook via texting and *NOT* getting to know other people in a personal, friendly, and face-to-face way. It doesn’t allow you to speak to people in person. Political correctness and social justice warriors go everywhere and frequent groups and wall threads to the point where even the most innocent and most innocuous forms of conversations and off-color jokes will be taken as racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, bigoted, misogynistic, and intolerant. And then those groups of predatory individuals begin to shut you down, report you to Facebook, and more often than not, Facebook will side with them. In most cases, these people have the cops and the law on their side, not yours. Sucks, doesn’t it?
  3. Rude and Puerile Tenor of Its Users Take Place There. Very often you encounter people who are rude and very childish. Their tenor – that is, their tone – as well as their demeanor towards you online is sickening and gross. In lieu of friendly and sweet friendships, you find arguments and idle threats aimed at people, not to mention talking and gossiping about people behind their backs, thus revealing your true colors. You see people becoming obnoxious, egotistical, narcissistic, and smug attitudes by people who don’t act their age, which also reflects their maturity levels that can be measured by the digits of their own hands.
  4. Self-Absorbed and Sociopathic Behaviors. People have become narcissistic to a fault. They look at what you say and do and then pick on you and reduce you to a level of irrelevance because their beliefs, ideas, and values are more paramount than yours. It’s the “me-me, I-I” culture we live in.  All bets are off when their own vanity and intolerance of your sentiments take precedence over your concerns and values. They think that their excrement don’t stink, that they are better than you, and then they laugh about you at your expense. And let’s not forget about their abusive and threatening behaviors when they think that they are so perfect and are madly in love with themselves. That’s narcissism for you.and
  5. Cyber-bullying. Many Facebook users I’ve encountered think that they can treat you like crap, walk all over you, use you as a doormat, and be mentally and verbally abusive to you, while becoming extremely angry and negative about your activities on the site as well as your intentions. They can make fun of you, put you down, and say a lot of mean-spirited and nasty things to and about you that you normally wouldn’t put up with if you and all those same people were in the same room with one another. That’s cyber-bullying – that is, the schoolyard bully’s use of name-calling, smearing, and sandbagging to get his or her rocks off at your expense.

All of these things came to a head when a Facebook user – a feminist/social justice warrior – named Susan D’Angelo with whom I became friends because she apparently was associated with people in the libertarian movement including Victor Bozzo (an anarchist whom I associate with but am not close with at all), responded to me after I called her last night.

The following chat that transpired is the following:

susan-dangelo-becoming-belligerent-with-me-after-i-called-her-on-facebook-messenger-10-22-2016

susan-dangelo-becoming-belligerent-with-me-after-i-called-her-on-facebook-messenger-part-2-clip-2-10-22-2016

Hours – nearly 24 hours – later I found this via my other Facebook account when I went to check out her profile wall:

susan-dangelo-talking-about-me-part-1-clip-1-10-22-2016

That’s when I immediately noticed that she was talking about me. And I became completely incensed about the matter. This is what you get for hating Facebook Messenger calls and rely *ONLY* on texting. But I’ll talk more about that later.

My chat with her (which I posted in this blog) speaks for itself.

Here’s more of the discussions that she’s had with people who have no idea that they’re talking about me, and they’re snake-in-the-grass pieces of shit:

susan-dangelo-talking-about-me-part-1-clip-1-10-22-2016susan-dangelo-talking-about-me-part-2-clip-2-10-22-2016-alternativesusan-dangelo-talking-about-me-part-2-5-clip-2-5-10-22-2016susan-dangelo-talking-about-me-part-3-clip-3-10-22-2016 susan-dangelo-talking-about-me-part-4-clip-4-10-22-2016

Well, you now can see what kind of a bitch she is!

She is a feminist, thinking that any guy who calls her just wants to “rape” her or commit some “sexual assault” against her. Therefore, she’s a social justice warrior (SJW), which is a pejorative term referring to an advocate for feminism, civil rights, multiculturalism, political correctness, and identity (or sexual identity) politics. That even includes gender politics as well. She seems to think that any guy who calls her, such as Yours Truly, is someone who wants to harass – or sexually harass – her because she happens to be a woman.

She also seems to think that anyone who calls her, especially Yours Truly, is a “crazy person” or wants to “scam” her out of her money. I’m neither crazy nor do I intend to scam her. I don’t even intend to sexually harass her, let alone harass her for any reason. I told her that I hated texting, and I wanted to be pals.

She stated the following:

And it doesn’t give you the right to call me.

Let’s get something straight here, Susan. The thing is this: of course I do have a right to call you. I am perfectly and legally well-within my rights to call you. You are well-within your rights not to accept my call. She could have put it on her profile that she didn’t want people like me to call her, or she could have politely asked me not to call her again. I would have honored her request if she had done either one of those two things. But those things were epic fails on her part.

You act like I committed some heinous and egregious act of microaggression, which is by far the most laughable and most ludicrous mindset that you could possibly have as an adult woman your age, size, and height. This type of mindset you just directed at me is what conservative talk radio show host Larry Elder describes as a “victicratic” one, in which microaggression and large scales of dismissals of blatant prejudice, sexism, chauvinism, etc. are directed towards minorities and women at large. Thus it creates a “culture of victimhood,” enabling people to espouse politically-correct, alien values and lethal ideas that quash free speech and the marketplace of ideas. This “culture of victimhood” enables politically-correct opportunists to act like they are “victims” of repressed society and individuals as a whole and not having decent work, moral, and pro-freedom ethics that will enable an individual to survive in life and in perpetuity.

Sorry, but I don’t buy into that logic at all. I never have, and I never will.

After all, what are you, nine-years-old?

I Don’t know you

So what if you don’t know me? Talking and getting to know someone on the phone and figuring out why they think the way they do is what verbal communication is. That’s a value that your parents passed down to you. Or did you just happen to fall asleep on them while they were trying to deliver that precious fact to you?

What do you want

As I told you, I wanted “to be pals.” I’m not exclusively looking to have you as my girlfriend, and I’m not obsessed with you. I always talk to my friends via Messenger, and out of the ones I speak with, I call very few people to discuss what’s going on with them and so on.

Besides, if I wanted a girlfriend, I’d employ eHarmony.com or possibly Match.com. I don’t like Tinder, and I’m not on Kik (although I’m not too fond of that as well). Oh, and honey, you’re not that beautiful.  Yes, I do love Italian-American women, and I’ve met nicer ones than you who are down-to-earth. Don’t try to pull that “Italian-American women are not nice, ok?” bullshit. Just so we’re clear, I don’t fall for that cockamamie shit.

That’s not an open invitation to call.

Bitch, it’s not my problem that you didn’t tell me before that you didn’t want anyone, including me, to call you. If you didn’t, you should’ve said so. Because you failed at your job to do that, that’s on you. That’s your screw-up, not mine. And, if I come off like an insensitive and intolerant jerk to you, not my problem; it’s yours.

The fact that she flippantly responded to me, even to the point of being grossly obnoxious, is undeniable in the way that she treated me. I wasn’t being a jerk to her. But even if I were, which I really wasn’t, but let’s just say I was exactly a jerk. I shouldn’t have to apologize for calling her. That’s what the Facebook Messenger feature is there for. It keeps your cell phone number anonymous so you don’t have to give it out to people.

The call icon is represented by the following:
call-button-on-facebook-messenger-clip-1

You can even video call someone and talk to them like you are Facetiming your family, friends, relatives, boyfriends/girlfriends, husbands/wives, or work colleagues. The video call icon is represented by the following:
video-button-on-facebook-messenger-clip-1

Overuse of Facebook and smartphone and laptop technology, thanks to the company, makes verbal communications between people unneeded and unnecessary. There’s no closeness, no humanity, and no personality whatsoever. Nada.

Society has demonized people for calling people on cell phones and via social media applications, and that alone has destroyed the fun, coolness, and creativity of public discussions in person. That should *NEVER* have happened, but it has.

And you know who are the usual suspects that have made it worse than ever? The millennials. Yes, that demographic alright. And they are the reason why political correctness has resurfaced in recent years. Not only that, they are also the reason why the social justice warrior movement is alive and well in all its glory.

But that goes without saying, doesn’t it?

[Note (4:49 p.m. EST, 10/22/2016): I made some tense and mild-to-medium corrections on this piece as well as some proofreading corrections on my part. It was late last night, and now that I’m fully rested, I decided to devote some time to make these corrections as they are. Otherwise, the integrity and composition of my blog piece remain immutably intact.]

[Update (5:28 p.m. EST, 10/22/2016): I went back to my other Facebook account to check on Susan’s account, considering she has blocked my primary “Todd Andrew Barnett” account on Facebook, and I discovered the additional comments she and her amazing not-so-amazing friends made that were stated on her wall post:

susan-dangelo-talking-about-me-part-5-clip-5-10-22-2016Wow! LOL! This is getting freakier, yet better and better each time she and her pals open their mouths, particularly when their discussions continue to reference me.

Since she never asked for my permission to bitch about me on her wall post, perhaps I should consult an attorney and sue her for libel. If I want to, I can pull a Donald Trump libel suit against her faster than she can say, “Holy fucking shit!”

Yup. That’s what I thought too.

[Update (12:08 A.M. EST, 10/23/2016): More comments from D’Angelo and her freaky pals on Facebook Messenger and why they hate it so much:

susan-dangelo-talking-about-me-part-6-clip-6-10-23-2016

And the massive, never-ending insanity continues unabatedly.

Libertarian Party Member and Activist Will Coley Calls Out Former LNC Chair Candidate Charles Peralo for Being A Republican

Libertarian Party member and activist – not to mention former Libertarian Vice-President candidate and Muslims for Liberty founder  and current M4L National Director Will Coley has called out former Libertarian National Committee Chair candidate Charles Peralo for being a Republican, not a Libertarian, because he has pledged his “vote for 80% of Republican elections.” Coley has been a thorn on Peralo’s side ever since Peralo publicly accused him of allegedly encouraging a Libertarian activist named Mark Matthew Herd to instigate a temper tantrum because he was highly inebriated in the hallway of the Rosen Centre in Orlando, Florida on May 28 that weekend.

Keep in mind that the following video that Peralo references comes from talk radio show host Jason Stapleton of The Jason Stapleton Program posted on his Facebook wall, dated May 28, 2016.

Here are the Facebook posts chronicling what took place on May 29, 2016:

This is Scheurer’s post zoomed in from Facebook as a photo:

I took sides with Being Libertarian‘s Head of Media Relations staffer Mike Mazzarone (Twitter username @MJMazzarone) and Peralo against Will on the grounds that I, along with nearly everyone else, believed them. It wasn’t until Tim Yow Jr., a Michigan Libertarian and a good friend of mine, told me (as he stated in the two-above screenshots) that Peralo lied to him. He didn’t know Mazzarone, but I was wrong to accept Mazzarone’s word as I should have looked into it more before I rendered my judgment in favor of anyone or anything. I dropped the ball on that, and I was wrong.

This is what I posted on May 29 on my timeline, and I now regret having done it since:

todd-andrew-barnett-on-charles-peralo-and-his-attack-on-will-coley-part-1-clip-1-05-29-2016-10-22-2016Here’s what everyone in the comments section on my timeline said:
todd-andrew-barnett-on-charles-peralo-and-his-attack-on-will-coley-part-2-clip-2-05-29-2016-10-22-2016

On that same day, I shared my post on the John McAfee / Judd Weiss Libertarian Party Presidential Campaign 2016 Facebook group (which is a closed discussion group anyway). There I posted the following:

todd-andrew-barnett-on-charles-peralo-and-his-attack-on-will-coley-part-3-clip-3-05-29-2016-10-22-2016

Just so everyone can see, I updated that post with a 10-21-2016 statement in which I had just renounced my statement that I sent out on May 29 because of the error of my thinking and my ways.

The day I sent this post to the McAfee group, members poured in with their comments, and they are the following:


todd-andrew-barnett-on-charles-peralo-and-his-attack-on-will-coley-part-4-clip-4-05-29-2016-10-22-2016-alternativeNow last night on October 21, I posted the following to the same thread. Mazzarone responded not so kindly to me as well:

todd-andrew-barnett-on-charles-peralo-and-his-attack-on-will-coley-part-5-clip-5-05-29-2016-10-22-2016

To take my apology further, I was wrong to crucify Will for what happened. I should have listened to him and not to Mazzarone and Peralo. I wish Stapleton had clarified it, but he dropped the ball on that one.

I already apologized to Will tonight, and it went like this:

my-apology-to-will-coley-clip-1-10-21-2016


my-apology-to-will-coley-part-2-clip-2-10-21-2016

And that’s the truth.

(And,  oh yes, I’m running for Michigan State Representative, District 32, in 2018. Be on the lookout next year and the year after that.)

I’m glad Will has come out with this revelation. Why? Let me explain.

This is the same Peralo who opposes the Non-Aggression Principle (NAP), considering the NAP should not be an absolute principle that spans in and out of politics and even within and outside of the State. If he had his druthers, he would repeal the LP’s pledge that a new Party member must sign when he or she joins the Party and a renewing member must reinforce when he or she renews her dues.

Here’s Peralo’s milquetoast stand on the NAP, which is a time-honored principle (which should be treated and viewed as a directive more than anything):
charles-peralo-on-the-non-aggression-principle-at-www-charlesperalo-com-clip-1-10-22-2016

The Pledge exists for a reason, Peralo. It exists because you don’t employ force or fraud against anyone who *IS NOT* violent towards you or *DOES NOT* employ violence against you whatsoever. The only defensive aggression – or force if you wish to call it – is when someone tries to be violent towards you (i.e. taking your property, brandishes a firearm and raises it to your head and pulls the trigger (thus murdering you in cold blood), engages in rape, molestation,, , and you have a natural right to defend your person.

The goal of taxation is to repeal it, because taxation *IS* theft. But, while that is true and that is the goal to end taxation across the board, cuts in taxes to the point where it can be easily repealed can be justly, morally, legally, and swiftly taken. Anyone with a pulse worth his or her salt can neither speak out against it nor see it not coming to pass.

L. Neil Smith, a libertarian who is a former Libertarian, describes the Non-Aggression Principle (which is also called the Zero Aggression Principle like this:

l-neil-smith-who-is-a-libertarian-clip-1That’s why Charles Peralo isn’t a libertarian. He is a capital (L) Libertarian, but ideologically speaking, he’s a “Libertarian-In-Name-Only” Libertarian. That alone does *NOT* say much about him being a s0-called libertarian, but it certainly speaks volumes about his character.

As Coley succinctly put it:

[Y]our self professed new libertarian party leaders folks[.]

It’s time for the Libertarian Party to return to its principles and to preserve, protect, restore, and carry out the Non-Aggression Principle while running candidates to win. It’s time that we are *NOT* like the Democrats and Republicans. It’s time that we are a far cry from them.

That’s what we should be and what we ought to strive for, not to be a carbon copy of either the Democrats or the Republicans. What will it take for the immensely milquetoast LINOs in my Party to fathom that? Seriously!

The Videos of and Allegations Against Donald Trump


billy-bush-donald-trump-and-soap-actress-arianne-zucker-circa-2005d-jpeg

The most recent ruckus involving the surfaced videos of and allegations against Donald Trump has been a top subject of supreme discussion and debate all around the nation. Media pundits and journalists have been on record, including top Republican officials such as governors, congressmen, and senators, as blasting Trump over the comments he made circa 2005 regarding a conversation he had with then-Access Hollywood star Billy Bush (who’s a current, although now suspended, co-host of NBC‘s Today Show) – a conversation regarding a woman that Trump failed to hit on (who turns out to be none other than then-Hollywood Access lead star Nancy O’Dell) that was caught on a hot microphone in which he stated the following:* {*Note: A video is included as well.]

Donald Trump: I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it.** [**Second Note: The tape was recorded several months after he married his third wife, Melania, who was pregnant with their son Barron.]

Another Voice: Whoa!

Trump: I did try and fuck her. She was married. [Continues.]  And I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said, “I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture.” 

Trump: I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.”

 [At that point in the recording, Trump and Bush begin to notice and see Arianne Zucker, the star of Days of Our Lives who is waiting to escort them into the soap opera set of the show.]

Billy Bush: Your girl’s hot as shit. In the purple.

Trump: Whoa! Whoa! I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.

Billy Bush: Whatever you want.” 

Trump: Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.

Of course the Donald was on the Howard Stern Show circa 1997, making horrendous comments about women with whom he has had sex, referring to the acts as his “personal Vietnam,” which can be viewed in the following video:

Here’s a YouTube of that video as well:

 

It doesn’t help the fact that People Magazine journalist Natasha Stoynoff recalls her encounter with Trump, in which she claims that the Donald “sexually assaulted” her. This is how she details it:

Of course, according to an NBC News piece titled “The Allegations Women Have Made Against Donald Trump,” there have been allegations advanced by other women and individuals such as Trump’s ex-wife Ivana (who claims, as revived by the Daily Beast, that he “raped” her in 1989 but didn’t open up to that account until she reportedly told her friends about it, which basically and partly the subject of a  1993 published book titled “Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald Trump,”) Jill Harth (1992), Jane Doe (1994), former Miss Utah Temple Daggart McDowell (1997), former Miss Washington Cassandra Searless (2013), some former crew of The Apprentice, former Miss Vermont Teen USA Maria Billado , former Miss New Mexico Teen USA Victoria Hughes, other unnamed Miss USA pageants (2001), former Miss Arizona Tasha Dixon (2001), Jessica Leeds (1980s), Rachel Crooks (2005), Mindy McGillivay (2003), Kristin Anderson (1990s), The Apprentice Season Five contestant Summer Zervos (2007), former Miss New Hampshire Bridget Sullivan, and New York City resident Cathy Heller (1997). Other people include an unnamed friend of CNN reporter and OutFront host Erin Burnett (2010) and former Miss North Carolina Samantha Holvey (2006).

Once the videos and the allegations came out, it’s become a media storm ever since. U.S. House of Representative Jason Chaffetz, according to Politico, told CNN in the following video:

Even Paul Ryan can’t stomach Trump’s remarks in the videos, and he probably can’t even stomach the allegations that come with those said remarks. Trump has since attacked Ryan with a new Twitter offensive against the congressman.

Celebrities like Emmy Rossum and Rosie O’Donnell became outraged by what Donald said. And they kept tweeting, becoming angry by what they had seen and heard from a man who thinks grabbing a “woman’s pussy” is A-okay.

Here’s Emmy’s tweet on the subject:

MY THOUGHTS ON THE TRUMP VIDEOS AND ALLEGATIONS MATTER

Here’s the reality that everyone seems to be forgetting. I condemn what former President Bill Clinton did to Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey,  and Juanita Broaddrick. The fact that he had a much-publicized dalliance with a White House intern made me nauseas for days and months on end in the mid-to-late 1990s; however, it was consensual, despite the fact that it was shameful of him to cheat on Hillary at the time. But rulers in positions of powers have done that for centuries. Has anyone heard the sexual activities of England’s King Henry VIII? Did anyone know that Ann Boleyn was raped while still married to the King at the time?

At the same time I condemn what Trump has said on these videos and also condemn him for making these statements. After all, Bill Clinton and Donald Trump are morally-bankrupt, ethically-bankrupt, and anti-freedom reprehensible reprobates, and Hillary is a war machine-producing, pro-military (yet anti-troop), anti-freedom reprobate as well. They all are vicious liars – pathetic to the core, corrupt in mind, body, and soul, and evil to the bone. The Trump supporters are trying to make excuses for Trump’s putrid and repugnant behavior. That doesn’t sit well with most of the electorate, and I think that matters in the grand scheme of things.

Trump supporters say that this was “locker room talk” and that women do the same thing when they talk to other women in private, even if the conversation’s on hot mike. Personally I don’t know a single woman who has told her girl friends their version of a so-called locker room talk the following: “See that guy Tim Tebow over there? I would love to have his hot and juicy hard cock bouncing around in the back of my throat while I’m gagging off of him. I mean, who wouldn’t dream of his Ball Park hot dog squirting mozarella cheese into the back of my throat? Man, if he squirted his chewy semen into my mouth, I would swish it around like it was Crest mouthwash.”

But that’s just it. A woman would have far more dignity than that to say that about a guy whom she just saw, and a guy would have far more dignity than to say that about a woman whom he just met. No guy and girl would ever say that about anyone. I don’t know anyone who would say shit like that. Some guys and girls might joke around a bit, but they know their real limits. The questions that no one is asking are these: would anyone say these things in private, let alone in public, whether you’re on a hot microphone or not? If you were a woman, would you say them? I don’t think so. If you were a guy, would you do the same about a woman? I don’t think so either. I don’t in public and private. I’m better than that, and people should be, especially about people whom they don’t know from Adam.

Sheldon Richman, writing in his Free Association blog, pens the following:

sheldon-richman-condemning-sexual-assault-is-too-easy-the-piece-by-itself-10-14-2016

He’s right and wrong. He’s right in saying that Obama’s murders and havoc at home and abroad are the real issues, and not the sexual assault matter. But sexual assaults do matter. They matter more than anyone else will ever know.

And it’s time – high time – that we address this concern for what it is. It is a problem here in the U.S.

What I find objectionable from the left and the celebrities talking about Trump is that, while they condemn what Trump has done and it does need to be condemned, they don’t condemn what ISIS and other Arab leaders and Arab men in their native homelands do to women, as far as raping and sexually assaulting them. Rape culture is predominant there, not here. The Patriarchy exists there, not here.

Can’t we all just be honest for a change? Please? Is that too much to ask?

Real Time with Bill Maher Host Bill Maher Continues His Attacks on Gary Johnson – 10-07-2016

real-time-with-bill-maher-bill-maher-mark-cuban-james-carville-pitball-and-johann-hari

It’s becoming tiresome that HBO‘s Real Time with Bill Maher host Bill Maher has launched his attack antics on Gary Johnson again. Furthermore,  the liberal statist comic’s attempts to up his attack patterns against Johnson is both repugnant and disgusting to say the least. On Friday, October 7, he launched into a tirade against the audience *JUST* to say the following:

Bill Maher: So you know what? People [pause] don’t fuck around with this election. Don’t fuck around. I know Hillary [Clinton] isn’t a favorite to a lot of you. [Another pause] Please don’t vote for Gary Johnson or do some stupid shit like that [audience members laughing and clapping as soon as he finishes that sentence]. Gary Johnson [audience continues to clap] who [audience still clapping] as we know [clapping begins to subside] couldn’t name Aleppo, the city at the heart of the Syrian war that’s been going for five years. Couldn’t name any foreign leader. This week he was asked to name the leader of North Korea. [[He] [s]aid, “I, I’m not gonna do it.” [Audience begins to laugh at that.] Gary Johnson, I think, should not be my president. He should be my weed dealer. [Audience laughs hysterically at Maher’s punch line.]

Really, Bill? Remember when you had Gary Johnson on your show, and you interviewed him? You were immensely nice and gracious to him (which I now believe was an act on your part just because you needed to fill in a slot for an interview guest, and Johnson met the prerequisites for that interview back on July 1st this year). But let’s look at it a bit further. You told him at the end of your interview:

Johnson: What I want to be careful on is I, I don’t drink. But I don’t begrudge anyone having a drink in the evening to take the edge off. I don’t begrudge anybody having pot to take the edge off, so….

Maher: Lots of presidents were completely plod. Nixon, when he was going through Watergate, was going, “Guh, guh, guh, guh” every night. We know that. [Chuckles and laughter from the audience and from Johnson]

Johnson: People being –

Maher: Right.

Johnson: – able to make their own choices, and in my particular case, and I’m just speaking for myself –

Maher: Right.

Johnson: Like I say, 24/7 job running –

Maher: I hope you really get into the debates, because that would be great.[Loud applause from the audience and smile from Johnson] Thank you, Gary Johnson.

Gary gave you a fantastic interview for your show, and you blatantly without mercy sandbagged the man! That’s the hallmark of a liberal statist Democratic prick with an uber-inflated and unflattering ego who is a hack interviewer, a hack TV talk show host on a dumb-ass liberal statist cable network, a washed-up actor, a shitty documentarian, and a disgustingly joke-of-a-stand-up comic. You are all over the map politically, considering you change your positions so often and as much as you change your pair of socks. You have no solidly-consistent set of principles to stand by, not to mention your convictions puts a target on your back by your fellow progressives who feel that you have indeed gone too far and have become solidly puerile, insensitive, bigoted, racist, and sexist when making your pathetically lewd and deranged jokes in your stand-up segment of the show, during the panel discussions on the show, and your massively intolerable “New Rules” segment of the show as well.

Of course, Minnesota U.S. Senator Al Franken, a lifelong liberal statist Democratic and a stand-up comic (who’s planning to return to his stand-up craft while still serving his time in office), attacked Johnson as well during his interview given by Maher on the same show:

Al Franken: Gary Johnson [speaking while Bill’s audience is cheering and clapping for him]!  [Bill Maher begins to laugh as Franken steamrolls over Johnson] Gar…Gary Johnson [audience’s clapping abruptly comes to an end] did not know [Maher laughs hysterically while Franken makes his catty and snotty remarks] the name of the president of Mexico –

Bill Maher: Right.

Franken: – when he was the governor of New Mexico. [Maher and his audience laughs at Franken’s comment.]

Maher: Right.

Franken: Yeah.

Maher: [Interrupting Franken] It’s like Jerry Brown, the governor of California, not knowing the city where people go to gamble. [Several audience members chuckle.] Las Vegas. Ok, I’m sorry.

Let’s not forget Democratic strategist James Carville on Maher’s panel *HAD* to take some potshots at Gary as well in this following clip:

Carville went out of his way to say that “it is a fact” that Gary “smokes a lot of dope.” Furthermore, he says, “It is a fact he don’t know jack shit.” He defended his comments on the show, saying, “Get a life. It’s a joke. Gary Johnson is a joke. He’s a big, huge joke.”

Oh, and finally, Maher couldn’t resist to slam Gary one more time with his newest segment titled “I Don’t Know For A Fact” on Gary, and this clip of that segment captures the cruel and diabolical spirit of the smear, which is crafted in the form of a shitty joke:

Bill Maher: I don’t know for a fact that Gary Johnson has “Gary Johnson” tattooed on his arm…. [panelists and audience are laughing!]…in case he can’t name himself! I just know it’s true. [Audience claps enthusiastically!] 

This is what we come to expect from a liberal statist clod and Hillary crony who attacks and continues to attack a candidate because that Libertarian contender is a threat to the major parties, including Maher’s very own Democratic Party.

Real Time with Bill Maher Host Bill Maher and Interview Guest Comic Sarah Silverman Attack Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson By Calling Him ‘A Fucking Idiot’ – 09-30-2016

real-time-host-bill-maher-and-interview-guest-comic-sarah-silverman-call-libertarian-presidential-candidate-gary-johnson-a-fucking-idiot-photo-clip-09-30-2016

 

HBO‘s Real Time with Bill Maher host Bill Maher, while interviewing show guest and comic Sarah K. Silverman, went on a “whiny-liberal-prick-and-bitch-fest” over Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson because a poll directed at a demographic of 18 – 34 years old people was issued with results indicating Hillary Clinton was at 31%, Donald Trump at 26%, and Johnson….at 29%. That pissed off Bill Maher, who immediately with the help of Silverman called Johnson “a fucking idiot.” Of course Maher proceeded to state that Johnson was in Maher’s “basket of fucking idiots.”

Here’s the entire clip of the segment as follows:

This is what took place as the following in this transcript of the segment of the show:

Bill Maher: Now let me read the polls here on Clinton, 18 – 34 people. Clinton 31%, Trump 26, Gary Johnson….29%. Gary Johnson.

Sarah Silverman: Gary Johnson.

Maher: Gary Johnson….

Silverman: Listen.

Maher: ….is a fucking idiot. [Audience laughs and claps.]

Silverman[Talking out loud through the audience clapping] I thought he was a fucking idiot.

Maher: I like him. He’s a nice guy, but he’s another in my basket of fucking idiots.

Silverman: Listen, I…I voted, and I believe you did, in 2000 for Ralph Nader.

Maher: Yes.

Silverman: But this is not that kind of time.

Maher: [Talking over Silverman while she was making her above comment to him] But he wasn’t an idiot.

Silverman: No, he wasn’t an idiot.

Maher: [Syncing his comment with hers] Right, he wasn’t an idiot.

Silverman: But he wasn’t gonna win.

Maher: [Talking over her again] No, and it was a mistake.

Silverman: [Talking over Maher at the same time] We wanted to vote our conscience.

Maher: I admitted it.

Silverman: It was a mistake.

Maher: Ok, but Gary Johnson…can I show you a little….we put a little montage –

Silverman: [Getting excited] Mmmhmmm. [Chuckles a little]

Maher: –  of Gary Johnson together just to rem – and, and we all thought, thought he was a cool guy. You know, he smokes pot, he was [panelist Angela Rye snickers] for pot, but he does not make pot look good by the way.

Silverman: [Interrupting Bill as he says the “by the way” words] Pot doesn’t make you cool.

Maher: Right.

Silverman: Pot is cool.

Maher: Pot is cool, but –

Silverman: [interrupting Bill] It doesn’t make you cool.

Maher: But you know what’s also cool? Reading!

Silverman: [smiles and gives a slight laugh but also agrees with him]

Maher: Here’s a little bit of Gary Johnson for those thinking of voting for him.

Angela Rye: So weird.

Maher: Really? [Audience laughs cruelly] And….by the way, for the people, 29%, 18 – 34, who I assume were Bernie people, right? Ok, here’s some, uh…minimum wage…..Hillary’s with Bernie. Not Gary Johnson. He believes in no minimum wage. TPP [Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal]……he’s for that. Hillary and Bernie are against it. Citizens United…..all the money you want in politics! Gun control….[Johnson] wants none of that. Financial regulation, universal health care….he is for repealing ObamaCare. Free college….he’s against that. He’s for nothing you fucking people want!

Silverman: It’s not even like it’s any….no one’s misinforming them about him –

Maher: Right.

Silverman: – like they are….like with your friend. You know, it’s like people…..people of  [unintelligible, because Maher and two members of the panel are laughing] what, what….

Rye: You know, that’s true.

Silverman: What you were saying was exactly right. People vote because they’re totally misinformed, and that is a real thing. You know, there is something called Brexit that people voted for totally against their best –

Stephen Moore: Yaay Brexit! You against Brexit?

Rye: Are you serious? [looking at Steve]

Silverman: I, I, um…

Moore: [Talking over Silverman] Brexit is great, self-government-wise! What were you, why were you against Brexit?

Silverman: [interrupting Steve] What are you talking about? They promised…they had huge signs on the sides of buses that said, ” You know, $325 million goes to the EU [European Union] that could, could be going to our health care.

Moore: That’s….not true.

Silverman: They had *NO*  intention of sending it, no intention of Brexit voted through. Then people are Googling what Brexit is after they voted it in.

Peter Hamby: Gary Johnson -.

Maher: [Quickly interrupting Hamby] A pundit.

Hamby: A pundit!

Silverman: [Interrupting Maher] I’m passionate.

Maher: [Interrupting Silverman again] Yes!

Silverman: [Interrupting Maher once again] Oh, don’t show my neck. My neck goes crazy when I have passion.

Maher: You know, you know….

Moore: [Laughs]

Silverman: [Gives Maher a serious, dirty look]

Maher: You know what would help a lot. Exfoliating! [Then bursts in snickering laughter]

Silverman: [Smiles with her mouth open] Good! I think of you every day!

Maher: [Laughs hysterically]

Silverman: My dry brush….

Hamby: Gary Johnson is clearly unfit to be president. What exacerbates me about Gary Johnson not knowing these things – and the collective exacerbation about it – is that neither does Donald Trump.

Maher: Right.

[The audience applauses while Hamby and Maher say those things.]

Hamby: And the problem is that a year ago people should be giving Donald Trump pop quizzes: Name me five countries of NATO. What’s the difference between Hamas and Hezbollah? How does a bill become a law? [Everyone begins to speak at once] Doesn’t Donald Trump know this?

Maher: [interrupting Hamby] No, he doesn’t.

Hamby: I don’t think he does.

 

And so the entire segment ends there. But it’s not a surprise given the hostile nature of the panelists involved in the Gary Johnson – and some Donald Trump – bashing.

Because of this episode, I have cancelled my DVR subscription to Real Time. I am no longer watching the show because Maher and his weekly panel of guests galore are toxic. They are filled with hatred for liberty, hatred for liberty, and hatred for individualism and free markets. They sure do love their liberal statism. And that has become the top, cardinal hallmark of Real Time with Bill Maher.

The Aleppo incident was launched by Mike Barnicle on MNSBC‘s Morning Joe to attack Gary Johnson, disparage him, and to throw a gotcha question at him, considering he threw in the Aleppo question at Gary during his interview on the show just to catch him off-guard.

The question that Barnicle asked was the following:

What would you do if you were elected about Aleppo?

Johnson was puzzled by that question. He asked:

And what is Aleppo?

Barnicle was shocked at his answer. He asked the following interrogative to Gary:

You’re kidding?

Johnson said:

No.

Barnicle replies:

Aleppo is in Syria. It’s the, uh, the epicenter of the refugee crisis –

Johnson interrupts him:

Ok, got it.

Of course, it’s not like Johnson *REALLY* didn’t know what Aleppo was. He did acknowledge that he thought Barnicle was asking him about an acronym, although he admitted that it was no excuse, and he sincerely apologized for it. But Barnicle’s question was poorly worded and quite vague. Remember, we are dealing with a hack writer who resigned from The Boston Globe over two columns written three years apart from each other. One column contained some lines that resembled jokes that were pilfered from the late George Carlin‘s 1997 book Brain Droppings.

The following Wikipedia pic evidences that in great detail.

mike-barnicle-boston-globe-controversy-excerpt-wikipedia

 

 

 

 

Oh, as for the cancer-afflicted kids in the second column? The Globe was unable to find Barnicle’s sources and couldn’t publicly identify them, and yet Barnicle defended his column, saying that every word he wrote was true.

So we have a disgraced writer who is the co-host of a network morning TV show who plagarized from a deceased comic by stealing jokes and using them as his own without any attributions or references to Carlin and who deceived his readers and the Globe by writing a column that failed to identify the names of the kids’ parents, and only got this non-fact-checked story from a nurse whose own credibility can be measured by the digits of her hands.

And, of course, Mike Barnicle says, in a Daily Beast column, he “doesn’t blame Gary Johnson.”

As for Johnson’s “Aleppo moment ” on Hardball with Chris Matthews, he’s since apologized for that, but he did say he meant to tell Matthews that his favorite foreign leader was former Mexican president Vicente Fox. Matthews asked Gary, “Who is your favorite foreign leader?” My response to that is: What the hell of a kind of question is that? Asking a Libertarian presidential candidate who his favorite foreign leader is is like asking a vegan what his favorite meat entree is. No libertarian – not even a credible Libertarian – would willfully answer that question because he or she doesn’t have a favorite foreign leader. Johnson did reveal that Fox was his favorite, but my only criticism of him is that he should have said, “I don’t have a favorite foreign leader, because it’s a silly question, and I don’t idolize or even admire any of them, past or current.”

Oh, but we have to ignore Johnson’s great responses about our foreign policy of interventionism (which he argues should be one of non-interventionism), calling for the end of the Drug War, calling for the strong reformation of our judicial system, and restoring our free market. Oh, and yeah, he even had great answers regarding Syria, our crushing of foreign regimes and our giving those countries weapons which land in the hands of ISIS, and a free market would end climate change. How about that for a change?

Yes, Gary drew a blank on that question and the Aleppo question, but so what? Did Trump not have more embarrassing gaffes? Did Clinton not come up with the mediocre responses to those questions?

Yes, Bill Maher. Gary Johnson. He’s not “a fucking idiot.” It’s funny that you knock him down after you had him on your show for an interview, and you were even condescending to him then. It doesn’t mean anything to you that you cherry pick “facts” and present them to your audiences *AS IF* they are true, and you and I and everyone know they aren’t. You’re the one who doesn’t have his facts; I do. As a Johnson supporter, I know this, and yet you don’t.

If anything, Bill, you *ARE* a fucking idiot, and you’re another in my basket of fucking idiots.

My Resignation as Campaign Manager from the Joy Waymire for President 2016 Campaign

It’s no secret that I’ve been involved in Libertarian politics for the longest time. My earliest memory dates back to the fall of 1999 when I first joined the Libertarian Party to get involved in third party politics, including embracing the ideals, tenets, and philosophy of libertarianism. When I first joined the Party, I was ecstatic. I couldn’t wait to be involved in political campaigns, to spread the message and philosophy of libertarianism, and to educate the public on the definition of and convictions of the freedom message because it was powerful, unique, strong, and stellar, unlike the (progressive) liberal and conservative philosophies that have guided their own movements. As time went on, from 1999 throughout the Aughts, I became a champion of libertarian (and Libertarian) ideals that none of the major parties – the Republican and Democratic Parties – shared at all and that a new revolution was on the verge of launching before the American people’s eyes.

Since June 5, 2015, I was asked by Libertarian presidential candidate Joy Waymire to be her campaign manager. For months I worked with Joy to bring support for as well as supporters into her campaign, and it hasn’t been a very simple task, considering I was uncertain how much support she was receiving, and that had never been made available to me. But I was honored, eager, and anxious to be her campaign manager, despite the fact that I was completely and utterly wet behind the ears and didn’t know what I was walking into.

With all of those points in mind, here’s what I posted on my Facebook profile, officially announcing my resignation as her campaign manager after I privately emailed my resignation to her.

This is what I posted:

My Public Facebook Resignation as Campaign Manager from the Joy Waymire for President Campaign Clip (April 11, 2016) - 04-16-2016 My Public Facebook Resignation as Campaign Manager from the Joy Waymire for President Campaign Part II with Comments - Clip II - (April 11, 2016) - 04-16-2016 My Public Facebook Resignation as Campaign Manager from the Joy Waymire for President Campaign Part III with Comments - Clip III - (April 11, 2016) - 04-16-2016 - FINAL
Joy subsequently posted a response to what I posted by issuing the following:

Joy Waymire's Joy Waymire for 2016 Campaign Suspension - Clip I - (April 13, 2016) - 04-16-2016 Joy Waymire's Joy Waymire for 2016 Campaign Suspension Part II - Clip II - (April 13, 2016) - 04-16-2016

I will be her campaign manager again in 2020, and I hope the entire supporters and members will unite behind her if she wins the nomination….assuming no other candidate striking the Gary Johnson resemblance is running at that point.

2020, here we come!

The Free State Project Kicks Out Free Talk Live Host Ian Freeman Over His Support for Sexual Relations Between Teenagers and Adults

The Free State Project, a private organization that was founded by libertarian idealist Jason Sorens and subsequently organized in 2003 to bring libertarians to a state where they can gather as a community to promote economic and social activism, change economic and social policies, and unite all libertarians and freedom-loving individuals to foster and promote the ideas of liberty, chose the State of New Hampshire. Since then, it has brought in tons of activists around the country and the world, including Free Talk Live and its hosts Ian Freeman and Mark Edge who had been pimping the FSP for years on-air as well as off-the-air.

However, as of late, the Free State Project has made a decision regarding its business and personal relationships with Ian Freeman over his support and defense of the “rights” of the youth with respect to his contorted belief that it is socially tolerable and acceptable for an adult male in his 20s, 30s, 40s, or even 50s to sleep with a teenager, whether that young individual is a male or female. In other words, Ian couches the “anything goes” mentality that is usually found in limousine liberals and calls it anarchy (or, under the guise of liberty) for teenagers and adult males to consummate relationships with one another.

The Free State Project has kicked out Ian out of the group and has made it clear that Ian will not be allowed to attend PorcFest and Liberty Forum as well.

On FSP President Matt Phillip’s blog (which is part of the Free State Project as well), he drafted an open letter which details the board’s decision in great detail:

The Free State Project's Decision Regarding Its Banning and Ending Its Relationship with Free Talk Live Host Ian Freeman Part 1 - Clip - 03-17-2016

The Free State Project's Decision Regarding Its Banning and Ending Its Relationship with Free Talk Live Host Ian Freeman Part 2 - Clip - 03-17-2016

 

Thanks should go to new Free State Project president Matt Phillips for making the most difficult decision. This isn’t the most popular decision, but it was one that had to be made, regardless of the outcome that likely follows.
