Property Rights Are Needed Everywhere

Left wing peace activist Uri Avnery writes unlike the crazy right wing Jews and Christians who spout the neocon line. Uri, a Jew, wrote an article, Without Borders, which tells a different story than what we are fed from the corporate media.

Uri tells us where we get our information about the "scary" things in Arab children's textbooks:

"The ammunition is always provided by one of the "professional" institutions that deal with this matter. These are foundations of the far-right, disguised as "scientific" bodies, which are lavishly funded by Jewish-American multi-millionaires. Teams of salaried employees apply a fine-tooth comb to every word of the Arab media and schoolbooks, with a pre-ordained objective: to prove that they are anti-Semitic, preach hatred of Israel and call for the killing of Jews. In the sea of words, it is not too difficult to find suitable quotes, while ignoring everything else.
So now it is again perfectly clear: Palestinian schoolbooks preach hatred of Israel! They are breeding a new generation of terrorists! Therefore, of course, there can be no question of Israel and the world ending the blockade on the Palestinian Authority!"

Uri has something to say about the Israel-Jew indoctrination:

"When he comes out of the pedagogic mill, the Jewish-Israeli pupil "knows" that the Arabs are a primitive people with a murderous religion and a miserable culture. He brings this view with him when he (or she) joins the army a few weeks later. There, it is reinforced almost automatically. The daily humiliation of old people and women - not to mention everybody else - at the checkpoints would not be possible otherwise."

Uri is writing about borders and the Green Line; but having been a terrorist (for the Jews), he understands where the Palestinians come from. He does not succumb to the brainwashing.

Drawing lines is not a libertarian thing to do. But libertarians part ways with themselves when it comes to drawing lines at borders. Most Libertarians believe in drawing lines protecting property rights and this includes borders and lines between countries. It is this basic property right that Uri is acknowledging, whether he knows it or not.

And it bears repeating, the corporate media in the United States does not recognize or defend property rights unless it is the rights of the wealthy and corporations. (And corporations do not have rights.) The corporate media whores are getting worse when it comes to repeating lies and propaganda.

The decentralization of news will be welcome if civilization (and I use that word loosely) can exist that long.

More questions about Rumsfeld

Given that this guy already made $1 million on the bird flu scam, which is to be continued, a look into his past and the scams of those companies needs to be examined.

Brought to my attention from Keven Trudeau's second book, More Natural Cures:

January 1981-- Donald Rumsfeld, CEO of Searle, states in a sales meeting that he is going to make a big push to get aspartame approved within the year. Rumsfeld says he will use his political pull in Washington, rather than scientific means, to make sure it gets approved.

January 21, 1981-- Ronald Reagan is sworn in as President of the United States. Reagan's transition team, which includes Donald Rumsfeld, CEO of G. D. Searle, hand picks Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes Jr. to be the new FDA Commissioner.

March, 1981-- An FDA commissioner's panel is established to review issues raised by the Public Board of Inquiry.

Politics has entered the world of science and all studies need to be examined. Acid rain, global warming, AIDS, HPV, Ritalin, and chemotherapy are some of the national and international scams. State and local governments promote their scams with the same formula:


Taxpayer beware.

Libertarian Platform for City Elections

With the primaries looking at us for 2007 city elections, the Terre Haute Libertarians are developing a platform.

1. No Extra-constitutional government - This means no communist buying of buildings like a previous government did with Center City. Also no fascist government with resources going from the poor and working classes to the large corporations. As mentioned below, Hayek noticed that whether communist or fascist, the result is an anti-moral government that makes leaders behave badly. Plainly, this means no special bonds or tax abatements handed out as corporate welfare. Bids will be open to the public.

2. Protection of property rights - The reason for government is to protect rights, personal and property rights included. Libertarians will respect eminent domain, the blighting of property and other tricks to steal property for the special class, and an end to fines for so-called offenses like grass being too high.

3. Transparent Government - "The People" must know what the government is doing to be able to petition it and bid on projects. To aid citizens, we plan to televise City Council meetings. (and paid for by taxes!)

4. Minimum wage or payroll relief - For the poor and small businesses we are looking at a minimum wage for the city and county. This may end with the more libertarian payroll relief rather than a minimum wage hike (socialism?) which might put the city and county too dependent on the State and Federal governments for relief if for some reason small business is chased away. Your opinions are welcome here.

5. Healthcare for a fraction of current costs - In Greeneville, TN, my brother can visit Dr. Berry. With no third party pay, costs will be much less for the uninsured and those with high deductibles and co-pays. Pass on this site which has much valuable information on it including how to start up, to any doctors you think might be interested.


The employees of the city of Terre Haute will be a good starting point to the healthcare of the future. This is an assist to a free market in healthcare, giving higher quality at lower prices.

We hope to bring responsible government to Terre Haute which cannot be accomplished without the help of informed and involved citizens.

In 2008, county libertarians will be running on a similar platform including $100/day jury pay. This may be raised to $200/day pay with the hope of getting poor and wealthy to work together for the good of the county, developing mutual respect.
