Sit down and
grab a drink. We've got a lot to talk about!
I delayed my trip to Taxco until next weekend. Why? Well,
I noticed that after a quiet week in Acapulco the city started to
fill up on Friday. I could hear the roar in the city from
my hilltop home and as I took my chihuahuas and our new Marketing
escapee from the US, Ken Johnson's husky/shepherd mix out for our
daily walk, I noticed that almost every house in the neighborhood
had 5-10 really nice motorcycles parked out front, each.
I bought my scooter a few months ago I knew this day was coming...
every other day I can enjoy my annointed existence. There
aren't a lot of scooters or motorcycles in Acapulco and as I fly
down the curb or on the sidewalk in the hot tropical sun and surpass
traffic, helmet-less, license-less, registration-less... and usually
a bit drunk, I feel pretty cool.
a year... at times that are never announced or scheduled, as far
as I can tell, about 10,000+ bikers descend on Acapulco for a weekend
of biking chaos. If you like bikes, this is the place to be
when they come. You've never seen so many gorgeous bikes...
and bikes of every size, shape and color, in one spot. Most
of them are incredibly cool.
So, now, as
I ride down the street as muscular guys fly by at speeds my scooter
can't even dream of, doing a wheelie, with some big booty smoking
hot latina on the back in short shorts... well, this weekend, I
feel like Urkel.
I took some
video of the festivities.
Note that when
I took this video it was around 1 am. I already know what
some US slaves are saying. My goodness! People have
their infants and children out in the middle of the night! And
where are the authorities? People are just going wherever
they want and doing whatever they want! There is nary a police
blockade in sight! And, most importantly, do they have a permit
slaves think, of course. What you are witnessing though, is
the beauty of spontaneous order. These bikers, in effect,
take over the main street. You see a few police cars come
along... and notice how nobody pays them any attention. It's
like they don't exist.
This is what
freedom looks like. No doubt, the one or two Americans in
town this weekend raced home to their hotel to complain about the
noise and chaos! Thomas Jefferson once said, "Timid men prefer
the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty."
Up north, the
indoctrinated slaves clamor for governmental order. Down here,
few if any pay it any attention. It's loud... it's noisy...
it's unpredictable. It's freedom.
SO PEACEFUL WITHOUT LAWS
As just stated,
most Americans nowadays would be aghast to see this unruliness.
Where is the police presence? Guard rails? Permits?
just show up and organize themselves. Sure it can be unpredictable.
It can even cause some mild discomfort as things change all
around you with no warning. Tempestuous sea, remember?
"Is that legal?"
US slaves would surely ask. They so easily regurgitate the propaganda
and further enslave themselves. But, legal and lawful are
two different things.
to man made rules invented by the slave owners (the ruling class).
Laws pertain to laws of the land based purely on
common sense. Natural laws are so self-evident as to need
no policing. If someone steals from, hits, kills or rapes
your friends or family you know that something horrible has happened
and something must be done to rectify it.
someone eats a marijuana infused cookie, that is considered illegal
in most places. But it is obviously not unlawful. Here's
the easy way to know how to tell the difference. If you know
someone who supports victimless crime laws, tell them to handle
it themselves. If they really think people should be kidnapped
for enjoying a plant that is deemed illegal by the overseers, tell
them to go and find people who are doing that, go into their homes,
kidnap them at gunpoint and put them in a cage in their house for
a few years. Seem wrong? Well, it isn't justified when
someone else does it for you. Not to mention, once you have
a million laws, everyone becomes a suspect.
My good friend,
Gary Gibson, Editor of WhiskeyandGunpowder.com,
stated recently on the topic of legality and "law" inforcement,
"You don't even need violence and kidnapping and rape to punish
violence, kidnapping and rape." He went on to state the case
for the government getting out of "law" enforcement... and everything,
if this motorcycle get-together occurred in the US. How many
US "laws" are broken in that video? People driving on the
wrong side of the street... no helmets... not making a complete
stop at stop signs etc... etc... etc...
So, if this
occurred in the US it'd be chaos as riot police would charge in
to "restore order" and hundreds would be kidnapped and put in cages.
Anderson Cooper would be reporting live wearing a combat helmet
and telling people how dangerous it is... it'd be front page news.
People would huddle around their water coolers talking about
what a horrible situation it was.
in Mexico, everyone just had a really good time.
This is a prime
example of how statism is chaos and destroys civilization, while
freedom is spontaneous order and is our only hope for civilization.
HIRED MURDERER DAY
to the state of affairs in the United Slaves of America, a Dollar
Vigilante subscriber mentioned to me that today is "Armed Forces
Day" in the US.
The USSA, in
particular, is especially cognizant of the importance of keeping
a monumental standing army, navy, marines, seals, air force and
more. After all, few places are as vulnerable as the US. The
Canadians, as everyone knows, are constantly sharpening their hockey
sticks from the North and threatening to invade. No one knows
better than I how the Mexicans are plotting to carpet bomb the US
with al pastor tacos and spicy red sauce... or as they sinisterly
call it, salsa rojo. And then, in a terrible turn of events,
to the east and west the US is encircled by thousands of miles of
oceans that makes it so easy for any nation just to sail right up
and take over.
It's an incredibly
precarious situation. Not to mention that the US citizenry
are the most heavily
armed people on Earth and each autumn the eighth largest
army in the world more men under arms than Iran; more than France
and Germany combined deploy to the woods of Wisconsin to keep
the deer population under control. Or the 750,000 who
were in the woods of Pennsylvania or Michigan's 700,000 hunters.
Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia, and the hunters
of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the
that is no match for... the Iraqi army! Thank goodness they
were taken out before they stormed the shores of Massachusetts like
a modern day Verdun! The horror!
So, thank you,
hired murderers of the US military on this day for keeping this
incredibly vulnerable group of people safe.
And thank you
too, Obomba, for all your efforts in keeping your serfs safe in
this incredibly dangerous world.
GOLDEN TRADER CONTINUES TO ROCK
we are here, I just wanted to send a shout-out to TDV
Golden Trader editor, Vin Maru, who did exactly what we were
hoping he would do. We have about 30% of our portfolio invested
in gold stocks, anticipating a potential bubble fomenting, but in
the TDV newsletter we don't focus on daily, weekly or even monthly
ins and outs in the market. And it is an incredibly volatile
market, as anyone following it knows.
why we created the TDV Golden Trader and brought Vin aboard. We
hoped he would help us to foresee the moments where we can get in
and out of this market, and manage the volatility.
did exactly that. He put out a blanket sell on the exact day
that the junior market began to sell off.
truly never met a better trader in the Junior markets. Ed
Bugos, TDV's Senior Analyst, is a world renowned gold mining
analyst but he is not charged with the responsibility to trade in
and out over the short term. But Vin Maru, as we know from
a lot of TDVGT subscriber correspondence, saved many subscribers
a lot of money over the last few months.
A lot of our
readers have been visiting Acapulco recently to spend some time
with the Dollar Vigilante in person... some have bought condos in
our building (AcaCondos)
and some have just stayed here for a vacation in one of the suites
in our boutique hotel (LTGPS).
We've got about a dozen people coming over the next few weeks.
We are building
a great community of like-minded people down here... and it looks
like it will continue that way. We did a couple of interviews
with some fine young, freedom minded anarchists recently. Here
is one with Josh Luther entitled "Law
is Magic". And here is one of my most favorite interviews
yet, direct from the beach in Acapulco with David Giessel entitled,
is a Self Licking Ice Cream Cone".
TO NEW RON PAUL-ITE VIEWERS
ran a marketing campaign where we invited people who like Ron Paul
to "like" our Facebook page (like
it here). We stated that we'd donate $201.20 for every
1,000 new likes we received. Since the launch, we received nearly
1,000 new likes! True to our word, we donated that amount to the
Ron Paul campaign today.
I know, many anarchist followers of us will be aghast! "How
dare you donate one penny to the political system!" they are saying.
Well, we agree.
We are anarchists. We believe the state is an unnecessary
evil. However, we support freedom and liberty in whatever form it
comes in. And as good friend to TDV, Lew Rockwell stated (here),
Ron Paul is turning more people towards the liberty movement than
anyone else alive right now.
to the 1,000 new Ron Paul-ites in our midst. Don't get too
fluxored with our anarchic rhetoric. We are all friends here.
If you realize the state is evil then we are in agreement.
Sure, many people are still of the belief that you can change
the system from within the system itself. And others, called
minarchists, believe that government is a necessary evil... but
it must be very small. They are, in effect saying, that they
like just a little bit of evil.
are still a small minority in the brainwashed west and we must stick
together. I cringed when we made our first political donation
of $201.20 today. But I did it in the spirit of freedom. I
don't support the political process, but I do support Ron Paul.
He is the freedom "gateway drug" right now and I, and we at
TDV, have thrown our support behind him.
ass and awakening the masses, Ron Paul!
