Call me an IDKWIA

I changed my party affiliation a few days ago from  Libertarian to IDKWIA  as in  I Don’t Know What I Am. I been looking  around  various forms of libertarianism and not finding a home. I am not so extreme limited government  to be an Anarcho -Capitalist  and the Christian variety. My problem with Christian anarchism libertarianism, is they attack  not only big government but also Church governance and the Liturgy. The last straw was a libertarian podcast say one is not a Christian unless they are militant  pacifist. Christianity is not adherence  to any political belief, from pacifism, socialism, or Trump style populism. Christianity is about Jesus and the Gospel: we are sinners  Christ died for our sin and  resurrected for our justification.

I am not a Liberal, or Conservative (especially what has passed for conservatism today). The best way  to describe me I am strongly individualist, Capitalist, anti-communitarian and anti-collectivist but allows for  voluntary  association like my church.  I for a free an open immigration system, strongly support property rights, free market , free trade because  it  the individual not government or a busybody conservative  should decide where that dollar in their  pocket is spent. I am against tariffs, for limited government , support  the non-aggression principal. I am prolife as in all human and believe Just war principle.

Fireworks Ban in Portland vs COVID-19 Lockdowns

I feel the recent fireworks ban in Portland  is part of the new normal of  given the newly discovered power  grab by government  over COVID-19  Lockdowns (FYI the lockdowns case more harm and were ineffective). I was watching the Portland fire chief explaining  his action;  I saw the  same  panic  ridden urgency  and exaggerations as I did during COVID-19.

There is  a better way  than just banning them like setting up designated locations for  some to set off legal fireworks.

I propose  an act of good old American civil disobedience . Every housed grab a legal firework fountain and at 10:00pm set it off at the same time.

How to skirt the fireworks ban.  One can purchase fireworks, and  wear Antifa  label clothing and when some one asks, they can say I am protesting  injustice.

Happy Treason Day

“I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”

Letter attributed to John Adams to Abigail Adams, 3 July 1776,
Yes he said God, Guns and Illuminations I am looking at you city government of Portland and Vancouver.

The great Inaugural Capital Riot That was not

Sounds like the great inaugural  capital “right – wing “ riot  was ether a bust, an overreaction, or  a big prank, or all three. They were no  armed conservative riots, but  it did not stop the antifa left from   trashing Portland and Seattle. They  went after the Portland Democratic party headquarters. How that for biting the hand the feeds you.
