Hello from rapey Acapulco from the dollar vigilante blog
Many of you have been reading my drunken ramblings for years… and you may have picked up on the fact that I rarely comment on news events, especially those involving crime, immediately. If I had been writing in 2001 I wouldn’t have written about the events of 9/11 and what I thought really happened (ie. the truth rather than what is reported in the “news”) for years. In fact, for years, when asked about what happened, my comment was always, “I don’t know.” It takes a while to gather all the evidence (mostly gathered by others but verified by myself) and come to a rational conclusion.
Note how this is different than your average person who reads a story like, “Acapulco Gang Rape – 6 Tourists Raped at Gunpoint” (which I did finally comment on upon gathering info directly on the ground and relayed in yesterday’s Feedback Friday) will immediately post in the comments section of the site calling for their heads and/or saying, “I’ll never go to Mexico again.”
This, I believe, is because your average person has been trained for at least 12 years in government indoctrination camps not to think. Memorize, recite, be tested… but to think? That is not the point of public (and most private) schools. As Mark Twain said, “I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.”
It has most recently been well-said here in “spoken word” by a fine young free-thinking individual:
But I’ve been asked by a lot of readers to comment on the Chris Dorner “cop killer” situation. I don’t really have a lot to say until more evidence mounts except that I’m glad that I didn’t live in LA for the last few weeks. Not that it is much better now as The Onion points out (Los Angeles On High Alert As LAPD Back On Regular Duty) in what is supposed to be a spoof but sadly is closer to the truth than anything.
I will just make one comment at this time and that is about how they found his domestic slave card (driver’s license) amongst the Waco-like wreckage where he appeared to be cremated.
As the graphic above points out, it was just hours after a plane purported to have some Saudi Arabian hijackers slammed into the World Trade Center in a massive fireball so hot it eventually, according to the government conspiracy theory, imploded the entire building, that one of the hijackers passports was found in the rubble. That was enough evidence needed to… attack Afghanistan? That’s government logic for you.
But the fact that Dorner’s driver’s license was found in the rubble pictured above did make me laugh. It’s amazing how fire-proof these government slave cards are. Aside from the fact that no private entity is ever allowed to access these government-created crime scenes and the only people allowed to analyze the results are the criminals themselves, I once left my current Canadian slave card on a table with a built-in light in my house. The light must have been on for about a minute when I smelled smoke and saw my passport igniting. I quickly turned off the light and removed the passport.
Here’s how it looks today (it looks far worse on the inside on the white pages where it is obviously charred).
I often get chided by mostly Canadian and US customs criminals about it. “What? Did you try to light it on fire?” they say. I have responded more than a few times, “I’ve thought about it.”
THE CONTINUING SAGA OF TDV’ER, JUSTIN O’CONNELL
You may remember back in July of last year, at FreedomFest, of all places, now TDV employee (we only hire those who have been arrested in the US), Justin O’Connell, spilled his drink and was then kidnapped and tortured (see original article here) at a Las Vegas nightclub.
To refresh your memory, we had just entered a Las Vegas nightclub and soon after I saw Justin being taken outside. His friend soon followed in an armbar and Justin broke free of the three bouncers surrounding him to help his friend. He was then tackled by no less than ten bouncers as I watched in horror. His girlfriend was standing beside me and she (and I) wanted to help, but I just held her back and said, “He’s theirs now, nothing we can do.”
We watched as the police came in to kidnap him and his friend. After 24 hours of what he calls torture (read his account above!) he was released and ordered to return seven months later to stand up to his charges of “trespassing”. Just yesterday, he returned from his arraignment and was found guilty… for spilling his drink. He is now a convicted felon. I feel especially bad because he had asked me to write a letter he could use in court to show his innocence – not of spilling his drink, but of “trespassing” as he was charged – but he only asked a day before his court date and I am about a month behind on emails.
Here is what I would have written, however. Judge for yourself if this would have helped or hurt him.
Dear His Majesty,
I have received word from abroad that you have demanded, at gunpoint or the implication of gunpoint, that my friend and employee, Justin O’Connell (who fits the cliche of “the nicest guy on Earth”) come to some room where you are probably sitting in some fancy costume with a robe… and — I can only hope — not a wig (Although I do respect fashion and lifestyle choices).
According to him, you and some armed terrorist organization has demanded this because he spilled his drink in a Las Vegas club nearly a year ago (you need to work on that efficiency… or maybe it’s better you don’t) and after kidnapping and torturing him, you demand he drive several hours in order for you to pass judgement on him.
Well, allow me to pass judgement on you. You are a dangerous and despicable criminal. The authority you purport to hold is not recognized by myself or any thinking, peaceful persons. If a free market contract was entered into upon entering and both parties had agreed to a private arbitration system to resolve any disputes, I would respect it absolutely. What you are doing is quite literally backed by the threat of violence and it is criminal.
Aside from that, even if I did respect your authority, who is the victim here? If the hotel wishes to press charges for the drink spillage, I would also respect that. At least then it would not be the state pressing the charges and then sending the supposed infractor to a state court. That in itself renders this entire process null in that you have a conflict of interest.
Besides that, how do you sleep at night? I’d rather sell gum on the street than work in a criminal, oppressive organization that terrorizes peaceful individuals.
Go fuck yourself.
The Dollar Vigilante
Maybe it is best I wrote that too late?
Justin now writes TDV Homegrown which focuses on how to survive in the US police state… and I can’t think of a better person to do so given all the things he’s been subject to there… and now a convicted felon, as well. More street cred.
VIDEO OF THE WEEK
I recently appeared on good friend Mike Shanklin’s Voluntary Virtues Vodcast. While the main focus of the program is on voluntaryism (also known as anarchism) we got into several subjects of interest to TDV readers including taxation, war, public education, the Federal Reserve and many more topics. You can see that here.
LAST CHANCE TO JOIN ME AND OTHERS IN BELIZE FOR FOUR DAYS OF FUN AND REAL EDUCATION
In a little more than two weeks from now, I’ll be surrounded by like-minded individuals on a tropical environment in Belize called Ambergris Caye, for The Global Escape Hatch conference. I hear there is literally a handfull of openings available as it is an incredibly intimate environment in which I’ll be attending with my wife. The latest addition to the faculty — and who better to help dissolve this “man’s world” image in this small internationalization community — than the smart, successful Central American real estate mogul: Macarena Rose.
It’s sure to be a lot of fun and full of interesting connections and info on freeing yourself from the collective. Click on the links above or here to join us.
UNTIL NEXT WEEK
I’m about to fade off into the sunset in Acapulco… with hopes of possibly getting gang-raped. Not under gunpoint though, that’s just not cool. Despite all the danger and rape, freedom loving people also continue to make their way down here. If you are interested in joining us all here, just click here.
Until next time, just relax, everything will turn out alright… as long as you follow some of our tips on internationalization diversification or on how to live free in an unfree world.
