    Something the state has long forgotten how to do. It meddles in far too much that it should never have gotten its grubby little hands into, and disaster is generally the result.

    So in your mind, the Constitution of the United States is a “right-wing conspiracy”? I like to think of it more of Lincoln’s words: ""to eat the bread which he has earned by the sweat of his brow". And, BTW, the ‘G’ in God is capitalized.

    You could say the same for corporations.
    Merging into monopolies so theirs no choice.
    .
    Or unfairly pricing out the small mom and pop shops.
    .
    It’s a balance, there needs to be some rules but don’t make them too far reaching, like monitoring all our phone calls period.
    .
    Plus you can’t go by, “Let the market place take care if itself.”
    .
    I am totally enjoying this week’s A&J.
    Go JImmy!

    Hey, Arlo’s a Libertarian! Who knew??

    Here’s a one-sentence definition of Libertarianism: You have the inalienable right to live your life your way without interference, provided you respect the rights and property of others. Pretty simple. It’s the Golden Rule on a political level.

    Do you know the recipe for a Libertarian salad?… Lettuce alone.

    I wonder if Arlo would be willing to run for President.

    Richard needs to shut up now!

    Right on, Arlo! Death to the State!

    If you know anything – I mean anything – about history, Richard is correct. Doesn’t anyone here remember the Great Depression? Or the French Revolution, for that matter. We all know people in need, but as individuals, we cannot support them. Government programs take “contributions” from all of us, and lends a hand. However, I do think programs such as the CCC or WPA are a better alternative to “welfare” as it is handled today. Um, too early in the morning for heavy thinking.

    Read a little history, and you will find that the state is composed of those “rich” that you are talking about. How many “poor” legislators, judges, and cabinet members can you find me?

    Speaking as a Canadian who supports government safety nets and government efforts to help up and out of generational poverty and ignorance, I think Arlo’s admonition to government is to avoid using law against things we don’t like rather as opposed to things that have to be illegal for the protection of society. Laws against marijuana, consensual sexual behaviour and laws forcing religious observation are examples. I think Arlo and Janis and Gene have consistently demonstrated celebration of diversity and compassion in their behaviour.
