only on an purely intuitive level can you claim any of these things are related in any way.

first off, it's a single file line headed by cowards, not child rapists as you might expect.

Who Goes to Hell First?

lesson: even god hates pussies.

[disclaimer: generally don't poke fun at peoples beliefs. but when someone posts a video this absolutely certain and concise and with such ass-backwards logic, i can't help myself.]

i don't know if it's routine in most states, but i remember at my elementary school the cops came and fingerprinted all the children (voluntarily) in case they were abducted. :|

I voted other, because we don't own our real estate.  We rent it from the state.

exactly.

The Show / Re: No Historical Evidence of a Free Society

I've come to believe that if you are ever going to see a truly free society, you have no choice but to also have the largest military in the world (purely defensive of course) to back it up. If you dont have that,  whoever has the largest military in the world will inevitably come along to take you over and force their will on you.

Aren't you equally liable to domestic military abuses?
You have to pay dearly for their excursions and adventures..
Then you have to trust the integrity of congress and the president not to misuse them..
And you have to live with the possibility that someday that M-16 may be pointed at you.

If you have a football team, aren't they going to want to play football?
In fact, aren't they going to have to play football to justify having the team?

Wouldn't it be a safer bet to have the worlds largest and soundest economy that can instantly be turned into a war machine for defensive purposes instead of having a perpetual standing army?

1. nations that trade freely are less likely to feud.
2. poorer nations generally don't try to invade or annex a richer one, do they?

I don't live in Ca but I imagine illegals voting to the left is (if at all) only a small part of the problem.

Rich, uptight, 2nd generation hippies, hollywood types and such are probably tend to vote more towards a soak the rich philosophy than migrant workers. I doubt much of the impoverished 2nd gen migrant families really even participate but I could be horribly mistaken.

Pot laws and the rest of the drug war, from my perspective seem IMPOSED. As in, even if a county voted to regulate weed, the feds (as they did in oakland in early april this year) the feds would be knocking on the door instantly. Why? Because Cali, like every other state, sold off it's sovereignty and now DC calls the shots.

Besides, even if they consistently voted Republican, I doubt the landscape would look much different. It's probably systemic and not a question of dirt poor migrants.

Totally agree with Svengali eloquent synopsis.

Thanks for pointing all that out. I obviously missed the nuances of the original post. BYOB policy certainly doesn't seem unreasonable. Necessary precautions to keep someone from activities that allow a pond scum level state attorney from fleecing the property owner are okay with me.

Private campground. Couldn't care less about their rules but I respect them.
If they became too burdensome, lobby to move the event next year.
Little bit of arithmetic will show the blow that is.
That's how shit works in voluntary societies that respects private property, isn't it?

Besides, porcfest is going to end sometime. But it's happening this year. Enjoy it.

Driving up from North Alabama and dragging a friend from AZ. Mostly just to check out NH and sleep under the stars for a few nights. Excited but still really on the fence about the whole thing. Any case, I've already dropped the cash so come hell or high water I'll be driving 20+ hrs to sleep in my leaky child size Walmart tent, pick deer ticks with Lyme disease off my groin, drink warm cheap beer and meet cool people.
