Thinking is not what he's doing. At least not with the higher brain. Not sure he has one. If there ever was a reptile in a human skin, it'd be The Donald.

I like BS Libertarians. I'm using it.

Also adapts easily to "bullshit libertarians" which to me means libertarians who cloak themselves in the L word so people won't be so apt to call them evil greedhead bastards, which is what they actually are.

That's just plain silly.  :emthdown: :spamsign:

Greed head bastards exist in every political party Eddie, give us Libertarians a break.

Suppose that's true.

Unless you think Hillary  and Bill are another Mother Teresa and Gandhi, or Bush and Christie are Jesuits that took a vow of poverty.  ::) :D

Libertarian is a slippery term. You have the actual political party, which is one thing. Then you have the philosophy, which isn't exactly the same thing.

Then you can have Republicans who call themselves libertarian, and it's an excuse for whatever "tragedy of the commons" cost they want to transfer from their corporate interests  on to the backs of the public. From their leftover sludge pit to our new superfund site. Poof.

You can have Rand Paul, who is a Republican because, like his father, he accepted that the Libertarian Party ticket wasn't going anywhere. He is far closer to being a real libertarian than say, the Koch brothers. But he falls short of his father's stature.

Then you just have individuals out there longing to be free. We get a lot in this modern world (at least here in the heart of the empire) but we have given up a lot of our freedom. Too many people. That's at the heart of it, I don't care what anybody says. Less population density equals more freedom.

The difference is that no other bunch other than BSLs make it an explicit VIRTUE to be a Greed head bastard, and proudly wear the label.  Jeff mentioed how after writing his piece a whole bunch of them created their own BSL websites and revel in the idea of being "Brutalists".

I see Lefty, Yes, Hillary. Pelosi, Gore, Obama and his bride, Oprah and Buffet, they just hang their head in shame at what they are.

No shame, none whatsoever, not an iota.

Go Donald Go.  You have all the scuzz balls in a frigging Tizzy.  :emthup: :icon_sunny:

Perhaps Unc, But I doubt it. It is all about reading for comprehension and INTENT. Eddie's a Lefty, and a Right basher.

Take in the entire body of his work for comprehension.
