Alfie Evans

1. When a doctor says A and a parent says B, I tend to go with what the doctor says. Usually the doctors are right. After reviewing Alfie's case, I believe that the boy is already brain dead and will never recover. Further treatment is a waste of resources.
2. If the doctor says it's hopeless, the parents have a right to seek a second opinion. But Italian doctors who have observed Alfie agree with the UK doctors.
3. Courts sometimes have to rule on what's in the best interests of the child. If the doctor says the child needs antibiotics and the parents say the child needs holistic organic regression therapy, the court should probably rule in favor of the doctor. But it's in the best interest of a child to live, not just receive palliative care.
4. If a patient is brain dead, not even palliative care serves any purpose. The only reason I can think of for a British court to insist that Alfie finish dying in a UK hospital is to uphold the authority of the doctors over the parents.
5. But this isn't just about socialized medicine vs private medicine. People needs to understand that life starts and stops with the brain. It's the only organ in the body that can never be replaced or transplanted. In the Baby K case, a hospital was required to keep an anencephalic infant on life support for 2 years because the mother would not accept that the baby was born brain dead.
6. Hospitals should not be required to eat the cost of keeping brain dead patients alive. Neither should insurance companies or the NHS for that matter. If Alfie's Army wanted to raise money for this hopeless case, they should have been allowed to do so.

BUILD ALL THE WALLS!



We must secure our borders. Especially our southern border. This isn’t just about people sneaking across the river, bringing in drugs and stealing our jobs. This is about preserving our language, our culture, and our way of life.

You liberals mock me, but take one trip to Clarksville and listen to how people talk. Listen to them use words like “y’all” and “ain’t”. Listen to them say “dinner” when they mean “lunch” and “supper” when they mean “dinner”. Immigration from Kentucky has corrupted our values. And Indiana is forced to accept these migrants by the federal government.

A sovereign nation needs secure borders to exist. This is a basic fact. Since the United States has never had secure borders, this so-called country is in fact still a collection of British colonies. “American independence” is the greatest lie ever told. Are we supposed to believe that a handful of farmers defeated the most powerful army in the world? If we’re so free, why do we still speak the same language as the Queen? Open your eyes to the House of Windsor’s lies.

Indiana can become the first sovereign republic in North America by building walls along all four borders. We must secure our borders against Ohio, a state where people drive like reincarnated kamikazes. We must protect ourselves against Michigan, two peninsulas filled with fanged sewer rats known as Wolverines. We must seal ourselves off from Illinois, the real home of Barack Obama. And don't even get me started on Kentucky, where the horses are better at breeding than the people.

Once the wall is built, we won’t have to turn back our clocks anymore.

Deficits still matter.

Congress and the President have lowered taxes. That is a great first step, but the second step should be to lower spending. The national debt is now $20 trilllion. There is going to be a point where people aren′t willing to loan the government money anymore. The federal government will either have to hyperinflate the dollar, default on some of the bonds, or a combination of both. Expect a HUGE debate on whether or not Social Security benefits should be available to men born after 1959 who failed to register for the draft.

Some people will claim that deficits don′t matter. If this is true, why bother with taxes at all? Just eliminate all taxes, and give everyone EBT cards on top of that. Only people who hate money could possibly oppose that. Except you all know it can′t possibly work.


Democrats won′t cut spending. Republicans will talk about cutting spending, but won′t actually do it. The real reason why Libertarians don′t win elections is because we would actually cut spending.

Joe Arpaio is granted amnesty

One of the most common arguments for building a wall to stop illegal immigration is that the immigration was illegal. These folks were quick to stress that they were not racist, and that they just wanted these immigrants to obey the law and come here legally. Even if these immigrants have jobs and are paying taxes, the pro-wall crowd wants them deported for breaking the law.

One wall won't stop a criminal from crossing a border. But three walls and a set of bars can stop a criminal from going anywhere at all. Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a man sworn to uphold the law, cheerfully broke the law instead. If you want immigrants deported for breaking the law, you should want US citizens incarcerated or fined for breaking the law.

Joe Arpaio should be subject to the same justice as anyone else. Instead Donald Trump pardoned him.

When a politician gets cancer

I can think of three possible responses. Pick the one that suits you the best and move on.
1. Express sympathy: This is a nice thing to do, especially when a member of a different party has serious health issues. When most people see you doing this, they see the human side of you. This makes them more likely to support you and less likely to oppose you in the future. This is what smart, successful leaders of all ideologies do.
2. Don't say anything: This can be acceptable as well. People get sick all the time and no one has time to comment on each piece of sad news.
3. Express glee at the politician's hardship, or imply that he somehow deserves it. When activists do this, I don't think that it helps their cause. Politicians will do things that should be criticized. They will do things that should be praised. And then they will die, and someone will miss them. You can feel gleeful about cancer and death if you want to. It just strikes me as a bad idea to express that feeling out loud.
