On Dogs and Tea

***Li Yongwei, a Yulin resident in his 40s, said dog was the same as any other meat. “You shouldn’t force people to make choices they don’t want to make, the way you wouldn’t force someone to be a Christian or a Buddhist or a Muslim,” he said.***

Li, a budding Lockean seems not to notice that the People’s Republic Of China has no qualms about forbidding Christianity other than under the auspices of the Party-sanctioned Church, or Falun Gong.

Only a people brainwashed that they have no national culture would defend dog meat. All Cultures Are Equally Arbitrary is the motto of our “multicultural youth”.
Multiculturalism cannot exist within an individual, other than in multiple personality disorders. (And even then, I wonder if there has ever been a case of such?)

Pigs are supposedly intelligent also. But pigs have not evolved like dogs. Dogs have evolved extreme sensitivity to humans’ emotional cues. And their facial muscles (especially Goldens) very much express their thoughts.
So, the “west eats pork and therefore cannot protest East Asian dog-eating” is not valid.
But what if it were valid. Does the fact that cultures are comprised of arbitrary symbols, signs and ethics mean they are equally as good? “Oh”, the intilecktchuel responds “‘good’ and ‘bad’ themselves are *mere* arbitrary constructions.”
And so is language. But intilecktchuels blather on endlessly spewing syllables like birdsong never perceiving that their every utterance is *merely* an arbitrary sound, or group of squiggles on a page!

WHY DO WE ALLOW CHINESE PRODUCTS TO POUR INTO AMERICA? The Miseans (neo-confederates) argue that Free Trade is based on libertarian principles. Clearly, these are principles the Framers of the Constitution knew not. Congress is given the authority to develop trade policies viz. foreign nations.
The Free Traders then try Utilitarian argument: that if each country specializes in producing that which it does well and efficiently and trades with other countries all will benefit.
But this breaks down completely when some nations keep their workers’ wages to a bare minimum. It allows the production of nearly everything to be offered for less money.
“The choice is in our hands” i.e. we can choose to not purchase Chinese products. This is not a valid argument. The Tea in the ships at the Boston wharves were taxed minisculey. The British East India Company had created a tea glut. The taxed British tea was less expensive than the smuggled product. Human nature being what it is, and not what it’s not will only rarely forgo immediate self interest in the interests of a better future or out of morality.
The Sons of Liberty unlike the future Sans Coulottes of the French Revolution and then the Reds of the Russian Revolution did not claim the right to “remold the world closer to the heart’s desire”. The American Revolution did not attempt to change human nature.
Taxed Tea was intolerable. Even if it were cheaper than smuggled untaxed tea. Human nature was not going to be changed by the Sons, but the temptation of the tea would be removed.
Same with claiming that Americans vote for cheap Chinese imports with their dollars. Perhaps so. But we have no qualms about outlawing various drugs because they are addictive. The product of coolie labor is addictive.
Boycott it, yes. But that is not sufficient. Destroy it at the docks is the Sons of Liberty’s way. The American way!

Sam Adams Or Tsingtao? OUR CHOICE!

WE CAN REVERSE THE STRANGLING OF OUR ECONOMY (and limit the economic and military power of China)

China is once again pushing at the envelope.  Our decadent press rather than report the fact, instead uses the typical Journalism School ploy of hiding the main point behind supposed questions as to “why”.  The Yahoo headline, “Why China is putting an oil rig off Vietnam coast” does not limit itself to the facts, but in even giving the news seeks to justify it.  Our media companies are all owned by a handful of interests and these interests themselves incestuously own shares in each other.  Our media is controlled by this Crony Capitalist class.   Of course there is no discussion of the actual causes of China’s trade surplus nor its consequent military and geopolitical results.
If we are to contain China and reverse America’s decline it must be done soon.  We can do it.  YES WE CAN!  But not the Obama way.  We must look back to Sam Adams and the Sons of Liberty.  Just as the American colonies were exploited by Great Britain, the American states are being exploited by a corrupt Globalist system which has captured the Federal Government.
Karen Hudes formerly an attorney for the World Bank has come forward to explain the worldwide corruption capable of actually capturing nations.  The video referred to here is an excellent interview, and is a good place to get an overview of the hideously complex web of global corruption.

The power of boycott is in OUR hands. However, to make a boycott bite there must be a sense of social opprobrium created in those who defy it. Though we talk often of the “Tea Party”, the actual Boston Tea Party was not a talking club. It was a direct action.
When the illegal Stamp Act was imposed upon the Colonies, the post of Stamp-Seller was supposed to be a lucrative patronage position given to a well-to-do Loyalist. However, the reality was was not so pretty at all.   He was burned in effigy, and was belittled on the streets. If that did not suffice, his house would soon be lacking glass in its windows. And if that was not enough… next came THE TAR & FEATHERS AND THE RAIL. Soon there were few takers of the Stamps.
The British brought in British East Indian Tea at a discounted price so that even with the tax on it, it would be cheaper than the price of smuggled tea. The SONS-OF-LIBERTY made it “uncomfortable” at the least for shopkeepers to stock the taxed tea. Again, windows would be broken, shops vandalized, names taken, homes visited. And those who bought the contraband tea were mocked and spat at. 
But ultimately the Tea was destroyed in a direct action!
Since the Federal Government treats the states as colonies, fails to protect American labor and our trade balance through the Constitutional authority given Congress, then it is up to us. 
BOYCOTT CHINESE GOODS. That is the minimal act. BOYCOTT STORES THAT SELL CHINESE MANUFACTURES. Picket the stores. Make it uncomfortable for shoppers to defy the boycott. Make the store owners, whether the owner of Walmart or the owner of The Dollar Store have always to be looking over their shoulders. Take names, burn liberty trees on their front lawns to demonstrate that we know where they live. 
Since most of the stores in which we buy Chinese goods are owned either corporately or by people remote behind gated estates, the store managers must also take the heat. Nocturnal visitations to them, and Liberty Trees ablaze in their lawns will make them seek other employment. 
FINALLY if we were to actually follow the steps Sam Adams laid out, the massive container ships that carry Chinese made manufactures themselves must be protested. Let the ports be picketed, and blockaded. Ultimately let the ships be attacked. Make the insurance costs of container ships from China act as their own tariff.
IF OUR ELECTED CONGRESS WILL NOT USE THE CONSTITUTIONAL POWERS GIVEN IT TO PROTECT AMERICAN TRADE AND WORKERS WE SHALL HAVE TO DO IT OURSELVES. 
Congress has too much time on its hands to poke into areas that are not enumerated, they must be forced to apply themselves to establishing the Trade Policy for the United States.
  Article 1, Section 8, Clause 3, of the Constitution: To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes.

HERE IS SOMETHING I JUST HAPPENED TO STEP IN, AND WILL HAVE TO WIPE OFF MY SHOES. 
THE LEGAL DICTIONARY defines the Commerce Clause: (http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Commerce+Clause+of+the+United+States+Constitution) 
”The term commerce as used in the Constitution means business or commercial exchanges in any and all of its forms between citizens of different states, including purely social communications between citizens of different states by telegraph, telephone, or radio, and the mere passage of persons from one state to another for either business or pleasure.” THE MERE PASSAGE BETWEEN STATES IS SOMETHING THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CLAIMS JURISDICTION IN?!  Will we be required to have internal passports?   If this is what law students are being taught, Karen Hudes is a miracle.

 

With every purchase we make, we are voting for the future of America.  We need just say NO and the de-industrialization and impoverishment of America stops.

 

SAM ADAMS AND THE SONS OF LIBERTY HAVE SHOWN US THE WAY TO FIGHT OPPRESSION IN AN AMERICAN WAY.  Quit drinking Sam Adams, and start acting like him.  And NO TO Tsingtao.
