It's That Time of Year Again

By Mike Wasdin.   Exclusive to STR   The Faux of July is once again making its annual pilgrimage into the hearts and brain dead minds of all good patriotic Amerikans. As it approaches my email box has become flooded with the usual brain dead messages sent by “sheeple” from Sea to Shining Sea. One that grabbed my attention recently was a little gem about the Pledge of...

It's the Message, Stupid!

Exclusive to STR February 11, 2008 From the time I first journeyed through the rabbit hole and up until recently, I had always thought it was the message. I thought if the people could somehow hear the message, surely they would accept it . . . the message, of course, being freedom. I now know that the people have heard the message, and that message was rejected.

Exclusive to STR While listening to the President's speech on television the other morning, it became clear to me that we are totally screwed. As with all assaults on our freedoms, the Military Commissions Act was sold to us as something needed to preserve our freedoms, not take them away, and of course always labeled with a jingoistic or benevolent name as to fool the sheep. The Orwellian...

I want 'god's' job. What other profession in the universe would you get all the credit and none of the blame? If something good happens, then you would get all the credit, but if something bad happens, well that was someone else's fault. What a great job, where do I apply?

It was just a matter of time before the real problem with government was located and removed. Just like a cancer, government has isolated the problem and with the skill of a surgeon, removed the problem. The sheep err . . . I mean the people can now sleep peacefully knowing it will never happen again. It seems the whole problem with government inefficiency can be traced back to one man by the...

The headline reads, 'Waiting to Be Rescued' over a picture of thousands sitting and waiting for the government to save them, in a city that has now become a sewer. They're waiting because they don't know what else to do and have never had to think for themselves. What a pathetic people we have become that some would wait to be rescued, rather than do something to save their own life. Truthfully,...

To anyone who has ever tried to make the argument that only the government can deliver mail, I have something to say about that. I run an Internet company that sells blinds and ships them. Our main market is in the United States, but we also will ship to other places for an extra charge. Sometimes customers will want to look at a sample of the product before making a decision, and we have to ship...

So why would a middle class white boy grow up to become an enemy of the State? That's how it all began, after asking myself that very question. One day I realized that I was no longer like the others, the scared little sheep in this country. I could no longer pledge my allegiance to a fascist State, wave the flag, and recite the brain dead mantras that I used to. I knew that I could no longer act...
The Freedom Summit

There are some out there who talk about freedom, and then there are those who promote freedom. The Freedom Summit is an annual event (this year it will be semiannual) that brings together some of the brightest minds in the freedom movement today. Names such as Ron Paul, Butler Shaffer, Doug Casey, Claire Wolfe, and Nathaniel Branden, just to name a few. This year's lineup promises to be better...

One thing that I always get a kick out of is when I buy something with my fake Federal Reserve Notes, and the Cashier whips out her magic pen. You know the one I am talking about, the one that is able to distinguish between the counterfeit notes that the Federal Reserve prints, and the ones the average novice counterfeiter prints. With a swipe of the pen, they have assured themselves that the...

Chalk up one for freedom! Today a Federal judge struck down the quacks at the FDA and lifted the ban on Ephedra. What I found most amazing was the ban on this drug in the first place. There was an estimated 12 million people who consumed this drug at one time or another in their life, and about 155 deaths were 'linked' to it. Most of these deaths were never proven to be related to the use of...

About a month ago, I took some time off. Some of you may have noticed a lull in my writing. I have been giving a lot of thought to my life lately, and I have come to a realization; this whole thing is futile. No matter how much we talk and write about this, nothing will change, ever!

I have always found it laughable that when the government wants to do something to screw over humanity (which is their reason for existence), they always find a way to give it a jingoistic or benevolent name. This is nothing new, but the Nazis have gotten better at it over the years. It used to be subtle, but now it's right in our face.

All of my life I have heard people regurgitate the mantra: 'We live in a free country.' I never really thought much about it. I just figured it must be true, because . . . well, everyone else seemed to believe it. Recently I have been giving a lot of thought to the question, 'What is freedom?' I guess it's a matter of what is the determining factor.
In Worship of Pagan Gods

Someone recently said that he wished people would get back to the true meaning of Christmas. I wondered if he really believed this, because the 'true meaning' of Christmas is rooted in Pagan beliefs. Christmas, as well as Easter and Halloween, are Pagan holidays. If we were to get back to the real meaning of these holidays, we would be worshiping Pagan gods. I wonder if most religious people are...
Libertarianism Is Immoral

I consider myself an anarcho-capitalist, but I believe in many libertarian philosophies, one of them being the non-initiation of force principle. Whenever I am discussing libertarian philosophies with people, they often say, 'That's not moral.' There is a very good reason for this--libertarianism is not moral! It has nothing to do with morality. Libertarianism deals with the legal world, not the...

Last week Bill Anderson wrote an article, Capitalism and the State, which was a rebuttal to my article that I had written entitled, Mobocracy. Bill wanted to point out the 'flaws' in anarcho-capitalism. I must admit that I am confused; I was not aware that anarcho-capitalism had any flaws. Maybe I should investigate further to see if I can locate some of the 'flaws' that Bill is talking about?...

Throughout history there have been many great quotes by many great people, but one of my favorites has to be the one by Abbie Hoffman. When asked why he used the F-word so much, his response was, 'If I could not say fuck, how would I be able to say fuck the government?' No truer words were ever spoken! There was a time in this country when people had a great distrust in government; dissent was...

What's the difference between a dead skunk and a dead lawyer in the middle of the road? The skunk has skid marks in front of it! Okay, so we all have heard the jokes before, and some of them I'm sure are well deserved; truth is, most lawyers are scum. Most of them simply get paid to walk you through the system. I have always been a firm believer that when someone does something that rises above...
Rats Abandoning the Sinking Ship

Faster than a crack whore pouncing on a twenty-dollar bill, the rats are abandoning the sinking ship. First it was Attorney General John Ashcroft and Secretary of Commerce Donald Evans to submit their resignations. Today there are four more rats tendering their resignations, Secretary of State Colin Powell, Secretary of Education Rod Paige, Secretary of Agriculture Ann Veneman, and Secretary of...

War criminals are more than just the policy makers in Washington and the Middle East. More than the generals who give and follow failed policies, and more than the press corps who report the carnage. Yes, it's true that not all war criminals are part of the government. War criminals are also the sheep who fund these illegal actions through taxes. {War criminals Donald Rumsfeld and Saddam...

I have people ask me all the time, 'How do you know you are right?' I have been giving that a lot of thought lately. I thought it might be a good idea to look at the questions one by one to determine if my philosophy may be flawed. Freedom: People are born with a sense of freedom. From the time we are born, we are continuously fighting to get more freedom. When we are young, we strive to...

I don't know about everyone else, but if I have to hear one more politician or talking head say something about Democracy, I may start shooting. During and after the S-election, all I have heard is the mindless chant of Democracy. If it's not from the right wing neo-cons who 'won' the fiasco, it's from the other side whining about how Democracy was stolen. The funny part is, Democracy...
Bread and Circuses

Bread and circuses became the method that the ruling class of ancient Rome used to maintain their power and control of the people. This method kept their sheep fat and happy, even as they fleeced them and sent them off to plunder the free world. The circuses have changed from the gladiator contests live in the coliseum, to the...
