GOVERNOR SAVING MONEY IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES [Libertarian Party Of Illinois]

GOVERNOR SAVING MONEY IN ALL
THE WRONG PLACES

Recently, Governor Patrick Quinn announced an initiative to save taxpayers approximately $5 million a year by letting 1,000 prisoners out early.   Quinn also stated that his intention was to release only “non-violent criminals.”  News reports have indicated that among those criminals granted release were serving time for domestic battery, felony drunk driving and burglary, hardly non-violent offenses.

The Libertarian Party of Illinois feels the initiative is misguided in several ways.

First, a substantial savings in the cost of incarceration would be realized by changing the drug laws in the state.    The 2008 Annual Report of the Illinois Department of Corrections reported that nearly 23% of the prison population (10,352 inmates) were serving time for controlled substance and cannabis related crimes.  Based on the calculation of saving $5 million per year for 1,000 inmates, this would result in an annual savings of over $50 million by decriminalizing drugs and releasing all non-violent drug offenders.  In addition, sentencing those guilty of financial crimes with restitution only would save money for the prison system.

Second, the state needs to look “within” for additional cost savings for taxpayers.  Illinois’ debt is in the billions of dollars, and a $5 million savings which results in violent offenders re-appearing in the general public is both a drop in the bucket and a poor tradeoff.   Illinois needs to cut its’ bureaucracy by eliminating jobs and slashing salaries, as well as changing the pension system for public employees.  This would send a positive message to citizens in this current economic climate.              

Third, we need to allow people to feel safe when out in public.  Illinois is only one of two states (the other being Wisconsin) which does not allow concealed carry of weapons.  We would have fewer violent offenders in the states’ prisons, and the cost of running the jails would decrease as a result, if these criminals knew their potential victims could be armed and able to defend themselves.  You don’t hear about violent crimes being committed at gun shows.

The State of Illinois needs to be more fiscally sound, more prudent on what types of criminal offenses result in jail sentences, and more realistic as to the prevention of violent crimes.   This would add up to savings for taxpayers and a better rationale for who goes to jail.     

 

 

The Libertarian Party of Illinois is a political home for those who value honesty, fairness, respect, responsibility and compassion.

Brasil y Argentina, mediocres emisarios de Bolivia [JOSE BRECHNER ]

Brasil y Argentina, mediocres emisarios de Bolivia
JOSE BRECHNER
“Una relación pobre es la cosa más irrelevante de la naturaleza” 
 –Charles Lamb
 
La capacidad diplomática de Bolivia es tan rústica, extensión natural de su presidente y canciller, David Choquehuanca, que acudió a Brasil y Argentina, para que intercedan por ella en sus derruidas relaciones con los Estados Unidos.
 
Brasil dejó de ser interlocutor válido desde que Lula y Ahmadineyad se abrazaron, besaron y toquetearon en Brasilia. Y Argentina que estaba en su punto más bajo con los Estados Unidos cuando Néstor Kirchner era presidente, descendió muchos escalones adicionales desde que su mujer asumió el mando.
Cristina no sabe nada de nada con excepción de carteras, pero de lo que menos entiende es de relaciones exteriores. Desde que los demócratas norteamericanos nombraron a su nueva embajadora en Buenos Aires, Vilma Socorro Martínez, progresista, mujer y latina, como la Kirchner, para que puedan simpatizar. Todo les ha salido mal.
El antiamericanismo es parte esencial del izquierdismo latinoamericano, independientemente de quién ocupe la Casa Blanca. En la Argentina es más fuerte que en el resto del hemisferio, con 84 por ciento de rechazo a los norteamericanos, según La Nación, lo que la convierte en el país más antiamericano después de los estados árabes.        
El último choque con Washington se produjo cuando Arturo Valenzuela, chileno-americano, encargado de supervisar los lazos entre Washington y América Latina, dijo que en la Argentina no hay seguridad jurídica. El comentario no fue al garete. La multinacional Kraft sufrió agresivos embates sindicales por despedir empleados. Los piqueteros de profesión, hacen lo que les da la gana contra cualquiera, con el consentimiento gubernamental.
La Casa Rosada saltó hasta el techo por el comentario, al punto que Jorge Taiana, su Ministro de Relaciones Exteriores, pidió que Washington se retracte. Demanda típica del acomplejado político pueblerino tercermundista. Los bolivianos actuaron igual antes de romper relaciones con el Tío Sam. El resentimiento del gobierno argentino hacia Estados Unidos no es diferente al del boliviano. El primero porque se cree más, y el segundo porque se sabe menos.
Según otro sondeo de La Nación, 90 por ciento de los argentinos opina que efectivamente, no hay seguridad jurídica en la Argentina. Obviamente donde no hay seguridad jurídica tampoco puede haber seguridad física, y los crímenes son el almuerzo de cada día, explotados cínicamente por los medios sensacionalistas que viven exclusivamente de ello.
Pues bien, pese a que los gobiernos brasilero y argentino están en la lista negra, todavía están en la lista. Los bolivianos están en la cloaca de las relaciones internacionales y están pidiéndoles ayuda diplomática a sus socios ideológicos, para mejorar su vínculo con los odiados gringos.
Bolivia necesita dar trabajo a miles de obreros de la industria textil que vivían de las exportaciones a Estados Unidos. Las confecciones bolivianas se encuentran entre las de mejor calidad del mundo. Las multimillonarias exportaciones a firmas como Ann Taylor, The Gap, J.Crew, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Polo  y otras marcas de primera línea, han quedado estancadas o limitadas, debido al rompimiento de los tratados comerciales que existían antes de que Evo Morales tomara el poder.
Solidarios con su camarada socialista, Argentina y Brasil pidieron a Estados Unidos restituir a Bolivia las preferencias arancelarias del programa ATPDEA (Ley de Preferencias Arancelarias Andinas y Erradicación de Drogas) que premia los esfuerzos antinarcóticos de Colombia, Ecuador y Perú con una exención tributaria para sus exportaciones.
 
La sutil diferencia es que en Bolivia el narcotráfico está en auge, y Estados Unidos no va a cambiar su política aduanera a menos que los bolivianos abandonen la delincuencia. Eso implica la erradicación de los cocales, asunto que atañe directamente a Evo Morales que es el jefe de los productores de coca, con quienes formó su base electoral y su partido.
 
Posteriormente vendría el juicio a los fabricantes y traficantes de la droga más sus cómplices, que incluye a la policía y otras autoridades, entre ellas el presidente y sus ministros.
 
La intermediación del insincero Lula y la corrupta Kirchner a favor del narcotraficante Morales, simplemente sirve para destacar la estirpe de esos mandatarios. Nunca América Latina ha tenido gente de tan baja calaña en el poder como la actual tanda de gobernantes progresistas.

Maradona es un cabirón

Comportando como un maricon.

Se mete la coca

Dentro de su boca

Para poder hablar mierda.

Se cree chulo

Besando el culo

De los Castros, Chávez, Hollywood, y Washington

Sin tomar en cuenta

Que ya no es astro.

Su peo fue declarado feo

Por la FIFA

Y no lo dejan participar en una rifa

Del futbol.

“The Speech Of Miss Polly Baker” Ben Franklin 1747

Posted in Ben Franklin, Comentario by alvarezgalloso on diciembre 20, 2009

The SPEECH of Miss Polly Baker, before a Court of Judicature, at Connecticut in New England, where she was prosecuted the fifth Time for having a Bastard Child; which influenced the Court to dispense with her Punishment, and induced one of her Judges to marry her the next Day.

May it please the Honourable Bench to indulge me a few Words: I am a poor unhappy Woman; who have no Money to Fee Lawyers to plead for me, being hard put to it to get a tolerable Living. I shall not trouble your Honours with long Speeches; for I have not the presumption to expect, that you may, by any Means, be prevailed on to deviate in your Sentence from the Law, in my Favour. All I humbly hope is, that your Honours would charitably move the Governor�s Goodness on my Behalf, that my Fine may be remitted. This is the Fifth Time, Gentlemen, that I have been dragg�d before your Courts on the same Account; twice I have paid heavy Fines, and twice have been brought to public Punishment, for want of Money to pay those Fines. This may have been agreeable to the Laws; I do not dispute it: But since Laws are sometimes unreasonable in themselves, and therefore repealed; and others bear too hard on the Subject in particular Circumstances; and therefore there is left a Power somewhere to dispense with the Execution of them; I take the Liberty to say, that I think this Law, by which I am punished, is both unreasonable in itself, and particularly severe with regard to me, who have always lived an inoffensive Life in the Neighbourhood where I was born, and defy my Enemies (if I have any) to say I ever wrong�d Man, Woman, or Child. Abstracted from the Law, I cannot conceive (may it please your Honours) what the Nature of my Offence is. I have brought Five fine Children into the World, at the Risque of my Life: I have maintained them well by my own Industry, without burthening the Township, and could have done it better, if it had not been for the heavy Charges and Fines I have paid. Can it be a Crime (in the Nature of Things I mean) to add to the Number of the King�s Subjects, in a new Country that really wants People? I own I should think it rather a Praise worthy, than a Punishable Action. I have debauch�d no other Woman�s Husband, nor inticed any innocent Youth: These Things I never was charged with; nor has any one the least cause of Complaint against me, unless, perhaps the Minister, or the Justice, because I have had Children without being Married, by which they have miss�d a Wedding Fee. But, can even this be a Fault of mine? I appeal to your Honours. You are pleased to allow I don�t want Sense; but I must be stupid to the last Degree, not to prefer the honourable State of Wedlock, to the Condition I have lived in. I always was, and still am, willing to enter into it; I doubt not my Behaving well in it, having all the Industry, Frugality, Fertility, and Skill in Oeconomy, appertaining to a good Wife�s Character. I defy any Person to say I ever Refused an Offer of that Sort: On the contrary, I readily Consented to the only Proposal of Marriage that ever was made me, which was when I was a Virgin; but too easily confiding in the Person�s Sincerity that made it, I unhappily lost my own Honour, by trusting to his; for he got me with Child, and then forsook me: That very Person you all know; he is now become a Magistrate of this County; and I had hopes he would have appeared this Day on the Bench, and have endeavoured to moderate the Court in my Favour; then I should have scorn�d to have mention�d it; but I must Complain of it as unjust and unequal, that my Betrayer and Undoer, the first Cause of all my Faults and Miscarriages (if they must be deemed such) should be advanced to Honour and Power, in the same Government that punishes my Misfortunes with Stripes and Infamy. I shall be told, �tis like, that were there no Act of Assembly in the Case, the Precepts of Religion are violated by my Transgressions. If mine, then, is a religious Offence, leave it, Gentlemen, to religious Punishments. You have already excluded me from all the Comforts of your Church Communion: Is not that sufficient? You believe I have offended Heaven, and must suffer eternal Fire: Will not that be sufficient? What need is there, then, of your additional Fines and Whippings? I own, I do not think as you do; for, if I thought, what you call a Sin, was really such, I would not presumptuously commit it. But how can it be believed, that Heaven is angry at my having Children, when, to the little done by me towards it, God has been pleased to add his divine Skill and admirable Workmanship in the Formation of their Bodies, and crown�d it by furnishing them with rational and immortal Souls? Forgive me Gentlemen, if I talk a little extravagantly on these Matters; I am no Divine: But if you, great Men, (*) must be making Laws, do not turn natural and useful Actions into Crimes, by your Prohibitions. Reflect a little on the horrid Consequences of this Law in particular: What Numbers of procur�d Abortions! and how many distress�d Mothers have been driven, by the Terror of Punishment and public Shame, to imbrue, contrary to Nature, their own trembling Hands in the Blood of their helpless Offspring! Nature would have induc�d them to nurse it up with a Parent�s Fondness. �Tis the Law therefore, �tis the Law itself that is guilty of all these Barbarities and Murders. Repeal it then, Gentlemen; let it be expung�d for ever from your Books: And on the other hand, take into your wise Consideration, the great and growing Number of Batchelors in the Country, many of whom, from the mean Fear of the Expence of a Family, have never sincerely and honourably Courted a Woman in their Lives; and by their Manner of Living, leave unproduced (which I think is little better than Murder) Hundreds of their Posterity to the Thousandth Generation. Is not theirs a greater Offence against the Public Good, than mine? Compel them then, by a Law, either to Marry, or pay double the Fine of Fornication every Year. What must poor young Women do, whom Custom has forbid to sollicit the Men, and who cannot force themselves upon Husbands, when the Laws take no Care to provide them any, and yet severely punish if they do their Duty without them? Yes, Gentlemen, I venture to call it a Duty; �tis the Duty of the first and great Command of Nature, and of Nature�s God, Increase and multiply: A Duty, from the steady Performance of which nothing has ever been able to deter me; but for it�s Sake, I have hazarded the Loss of the public Esteem, and frequently incurr�d public Disgrace and Punishment; and therefore ought, in my humble Opinion, instead of a Whipping, to have a Statue erected to my Memory.

(*) Turning to some Gentlemen of the Assembly, then in Court.

The Maryland Gazette, August 11, 1747; first printed April 15, 1747

Fart Proudly by Ben Franklin 1781

Posted in Ben Franklin by alvarezgalloso on diciembre 20, 2009

GENTLEMEN,

I have perused your late mathematical Prize Question, proposed in lieu of one in Natural Philosophy, for the ensuing year, viz. “Une figure quelconque donnee, on demande d�y inscrire le plus grand nombre de fois possible une autre figure plus-petite quelconque, qui est aussi donnee”. I was glad to find by these following Words, “l�Acadeemie a jugee que cette deecouverte, en eetendant les bornes de nos connoissances, ne seroit pas sans UTILITE”, that you esteem Utility an essential Point in your Enquiries, which has not always been the case with all Academies; and I conclude therefore that you have given this Question instead of a philosophical, or as the Learned express it, a physical one, because you could not at the time think of a physical one that promis�d greater_Utility.

Permit me then humbly to propose one of that sort for your consideration, and through you, if you approve it, for the serious Enquiry of learned Physicians, Chemists, &c. of this enlightened Age. It is universally well known, That in digesting our common Food, there is created or produced in the Bowels of human Creatures, a great Quantity of Wind.

That the permitting this Air to escape and mix with the Atmosphere, is usually offensive to the Company, from the fetid Smell that accompanies it.

That all well-bred People therefore, to avoid giving such Offence, forcibly restrain the Efforts of Nature to discharge that Wind.

That so retain�d contrary to Nature, it not only gives frequently great present Pain, but occasions future Diseases, such as habitual Cholics, Ruptures, Tympanies, &c. often destructive of the Constitution, & sometimes of Life itself.

Were it not for the odiously offensive Smell accompanying such Escapes, polite People would probably be under no more Restraint in discharging such Wind in Company, than they are in spitting, or in blowing their Noses.

My Prize Question therefore should be, To discover some Drug wholesome & not disagreable, to be mix�d with our common Food, or Sauces, that shall render the natural Discharges of Wind from our Bodies, not only inoffensive, but agreable as Perfumes.

That this is not a chimerical Project, and altogether impossible, may appear from these Considerations. That we already have some Knowledge of Means capable of Varying that Smell. He that dines on stale Flesh, especially with much Addition of Onions, shall be able to afford a Stink that no Company can tolerate; while he that has lived for some Time on Vegetables only, shall have that Breath so pure as to be insensible to the most delicate Noses; and if he can manage so as to avoid the Report, he may any where give Vent to his Griefs, unnoticed. But as there are many to whom an entire Vegetable Diet would be inconvenient, and as a little Quick-Lime thrown into a Jakes will correct the amazing Quantity of fetid Air arising from the vast Mass of putrid Matter contain�d in such Places, and render it rather pleasing to the Smell, who knows but that a little Powder of Lime (or some other thing equivalent) taken in our Food, or perhaps a Glass of Limewater drank at Dinner, may have the same Effect on the Air produc�d in and issuing from our Bowels? This is worth the Experiment. Certain it is also that we have the Power of changing by slight Means the Smell of another Discharge, that of our Water. A few Stems of Asparagus eaten, shall give our Urine a disagreable Odour; and a Pill of Turpentine no bigger than a Pea, shall bestow on it the pleasing Smell of Violets. And why should it be thought more impossible in Nature, to find Means of making a Perfume of our Wind than of our Water?

For the Encouragement of this Enquiry, (from the immortal Honour to be reasonably expected by the Inventor) let it be considered of how small Importance to Mankind, or to how small a Part of Mankind have been useful those Discoveries in Science that have heretofore made Philosophers famous. Are there twenty Men in Europe at this Day, the happier, or even the easier, for any Knowledge they have pick�d out of Aristotle? What Comfort can the Vortices of Descartes give to a Man who has Whirlwinds in his Bowels! The Knowledge of Newton�s mutual Attraction of the Particles of Matter, can it afford Ease to him who is rack�d by their mutual Repulsion, and the cruel Distensions it occasions? The Pleasure arising to a few Philosophers, from seeing, a few Times in their Life, the Threads of Light untwisted, and separated by the Newtonian Prism into seven Colours, can it be compared with the Ease and Comfort every Man living might feel seven times a Day, by discharging freely the Wind from his Bowels? Especially if it be converted into a Perfume: For the Pleasures of one Sense being little inferior to those of another, instead of pleasing the Sight he might delight the Smell of those about him, & make Numbers happy, which to a benevolent Mind must afford infinite Satisfaction. The generous Soul, who now endeavours to find out whether the Friends he entertains like best Claret or Burgundy, Champagne or Madeira, would then enquire also whether they chose Musk or Lilly, Rose or Bergamot, and provide accordingly. And surely such a Liberty of Expressing one�s Scent-iments, and pleasing one another, is of infinitely more Importance to human Happiness than that Liberty of the Press, or of abusing one another, which the English are so ready to fight & die for. — In short, this Invention, if compleated, would be, as Bacon expresses it, bringing Philosophy home to Mens Business and Bosoms. And I cannot but conclude, that in Comparison therewith, for universal and continual UTILITY, the Science of the Philosophers above-mentioned, even with the Addition, Gentlemen, of your “Figure quelconque” and the Figures inscrib�d in it, are, all together, scarcely worth a

FART-HING.

Progresa la incursión iraní en Latinoamérica JOSE BRECHNER

Progresa la incursión iraní en Latinoamérica


JOSE BRECHNER

“Nunca subestimes el poder de la estupidez humana”. -Anónimo

Hillary Clinton advirtió severamente a Bolivia y Venezuela de las consecuencias que pueden sufrir por robustecer sus vínculos con Irán. A Brasil no le dijo nada, pero el mensaje también fue para éste; especialmente a éste.

“Estamos muy conscientes del interés que tiene Irán por promocionarse en algunos países, tales como Bolivia y Venezuela. Solamente podemos decir que es realmente una mala idea”. Dijo la Secretaria de Estado.

“Esperamos que haya un reconocimiento (por su parte) de que ése es uno de los países que más apoyan, promueven y exportan el terrorismo hoy en día en el mundo”, afirmó.
“Si la gente quiere coquetear con Irán, debería evaluar cuáles podrían ser las consecuencias para ellos y esperamos que se lo piensen dos veces; nosotros les apoyaremos si lo hacen”, concluyó.

El envío de tropas norteamericanas a Bolivia, si los iranís incrementan su presencia en ese país, sería una bendición para los pueblos agrícolas orientales, que están sensibles al socialismo cavernícola de Evo Morales quien comenzó a confiscarles sus tierras apenas fue reelegido.

El mandatario boliviano, quien al retorno de su segunda visita a Rodríguez Zapatero, comentó que estuvo en “Ginebra, España”, y en el mismo discurso añadió que los bolivianos pelearon contra todos los imperios, incluso el “Romano”, no entiende la magnitud del embrollo en el que se está metiendo, siguiendo a su mentor, y titán intelectual (comparado con él), el iluminado Hugo Chávez, iniciador del affaire con los ayatolas.

Siendo España el único país donde puede comunicarse sin intérprete, (asumimos). Lo menos que se esperaba era que Morales supiera adónde viajó, pero su arenga confirma que no sabe dónde está parado.

Así y todo, ha sido ratificado presidente, lo que da una pauta de cuál es el nivel de quiénes lo votaron, y el orgullo que sienten de ser guiados por esa lumbrera.

La exhortación directa de Clinton a Chávez y Morales, que son los más limitados intelectualmente; y el mensaje subliminal a Lula, se debe a que el brasilero está perdiendo conexión con la realidad, volcándose a sus raíces extremistas. Lo aturdió la fama, y la estupidez es directamente proporcional a la popularidad.

Lula es el amante de Ajmadineyad que salió del closet, pero no es el único que siente atracción hacia el iraní. Con excepción de los gobernantes de Colombia, Perú y Chile, que están claramente alejados del bravucón personaje, los demás sudamericanos le hacen guiños.

Argentina, por haber sido blanco de Jizbalá, enfrió sus relaciones con Teherán, de lo contrario sus lazos serían diferentes. Kirchner es la versión bolivariana light.
 “Los amigos de mis enemigos, son mis enemigos”. Si Sudamérica se arrima a los ayatolas, le incumbe al mundo libre, que debe protegerse.

Irán posee misiles de mediano alcance, y mucho armamento liviano. El mismo que regala a  Hamás y Jizbalá, servirá para armar las milicias comunistas. Además es experto en entrenar guerrilleros.

No hay que dejarse burlar por el cariño iraní hacia Sudamérica. Su verdadera meta es la conversión de las poblaciones autóctonas al Islam. Su apoyo político y económico es un disfraz para imponer su convicción religiosa, como está haciendo en la Ciudad de El Alto, colindante con La Paz, donde obligan a las enfermeras bolivianas a usar el atuendo islámico (Jihab), en un diminuto y mediocre hospital que donaron.

No nos equivoquemos, Irán es una intolerante teocracia anti occidental. Sus líderes piensan acomodarse en Latinoamérica para atacar a los Estados Unidos, aliados con los neocomunistas.
El presupuesto para defensa de Brasil es 24.000 millones de dólares; Venezuela 4.000 millones, y Bolivia 150 millones.

El gasto norteamericano es de 660.000 millones. A ningún ser racional le conviene enfrentarse con la superpotencia. Pero estos no son racionales.

TEA PARTY STRENGTH IN POLL SHOWS DESIRE FOR THIRD PARTY: LIBERTARIANS PROVIDE THE ANSWER [LP Of Illinois]

Posted in Partido Libertario/LP by alvarezgalloso on diciembre 12, 2009

TEA PARTY STRENGTH IN  POLL SHOWS DESIRE FOR THIRD PARTY: LIBERTARIANS PROVIDE THE ANSWER 

A recent poll taken by Rasmussen Reports found that Tea Party candidates beat Republicans in generic congressional match ups.  The findings indicated Democrats polling 36% of the vote, followed by the Tea Party candidate with 23%, Republicans at 18% with 23% undecided.

The report also indicated that 41% of voters nationwide say Republicans and Democrats are so much alike that a new party is needed to represent the American people, and that 60% of voters not affiliated with either major party agree that a new party is needed.

Tea parties and similar events have been held in numerous American cities over the past couple of years.  Members of the Libertarian Party of Illinois (“LP Illinois”) have been instrumental in many of these gatherings:

l LP Illinois members coordinated and spoke at the fall 2008 Chicago Tax  Protest

l LP Illinois members began organizing a 2009 Tax Day Tea Party BEFORE Rick Santelli called for it on television

l LP Illinois members helped to plan and coordinate the 2009 Chicago Independence Day Tea Party

l LP Illinois members coordinated and spoke at the 2009 Chicago End the Fed Rally

These demonstrations illustrate citizens’ loss of patience with politics as usual.  They were about excessive taxation and runaway spending and were grassroots efforts by those in favor of limited government.  The Republican Party cannot lay claim to being for small government, with its tremendous growth and the passing of the PATRIOT Act during the administration of George W. Bush.

The answer lies with the Libertarian Party.  For nearly 40 years, we have adhered to the ideals of limited government, lower taxes, personal freedom, individual responsibility and a non-interventionist foreign policy.  We are the true alternative for voters looking for a new direction.  With so many career politicians on both sides of the aisle remaining in office for decades, how can change ever be affected without a new landscape?

Despite unfair ballot access laws in the State of Illinois passed by the Democrats and Republicans which make it time consuming and expensive for third parties to appear on the ballot, LP Illinois fully expects to field a slate of energetic candidates for the 2010 state-wide elections.  We welcome the debate and the opportunity to offer the answer so badly needed.      

 
 The Libertarian Party of Illinois is a political home for those who value honesty, fairness, respect, responsibility and compassion.
