Liberty and License

One of my wingnut conspecifics tells me that “liberty” must be distinguished from “license”. “Liberty”, says he, is the freedom to do, say, think what one ought. “License” is the freedom to do, say, think as one pleases. The former is good; the latter is bad.

The wingnut reckons that doing, saying, thinking what one ought must include obedience to the state. After all, someone has to decide what ought to be done, said, thought so that we’ll know what our “liberties” are and avoid licentiousness. In other words, no individual can rightly decide what to do, say, think without reference to the will of the majority as expressed by the state. “Liberty” means, if I understand my conspecific right, the freedom to obey the state and to live in cases where the state is silent in a manner that does not offend a busybody majority. Well, he can keep that “liberty” and let me have my license. Call me a “licensarian” from here on out.

This is one way that wingnuts can talk about liberty with straight faces. The word means something else entirely when uttered by a wingnut.

Volunteer writers wanted to infiltrate evil websites:

Why isn’t the Judiciary Committee investigating child exploitation on the Internet instead of the Energy and Commerce Committee?

April 4, 2006, C-span televises the Energy and Commerce Committee’s first investigation of child exploitation on the Internet.

Ms. Parry Aftab is the Executive Director of www.wiredsafety.org and she testified under oath about a website showing a three and a half-year-old child being raped. Ms. Aftab told how wiredsafety.org is all volunteer organization and teaches children how to be aware of child molesters on the Internet.

Helpless Americans Accept Government Incompetence As The Norm
The above April 4, 2006, Energy and Commerce Committee investigation needs to be studied and written about, please. I’m not sure if any of the other days of the Energy Commerce Committee investigation meetings where even televised and that in it’s self should set off alarm bells. One of the main concerns witnesses forcefully reiterated was the lack of control the government employs towards child exploitation on the Internet. While viewing C-span I heard the same old story, no one is held accountable and American’s accepting Government incompetence has become the norm. Expert witnesses testified that child exploitation on the Internet is conservatively estimated at over a $20 billion a year business and growing uncontrollably.

Prayer and the Writing Pen
I’m a Catholic therefore I feel I have an obligation to help molested Catholic children even at the sacrifice of the Catholic leaders.

According to the LA Times the Catholic Church has spent over $3.2 billion protecting priests who molest and rape children. These extraordinary amounts of money are being spent while the Catholic Church fully realizes that millions of people are starving to death in Africa. Now the Catholic Church, with the silent help of the media, promotes Pope John Paul on the fast track to Sainthood.

I pray, “Almighty Jesus, for the sake of those molested children and those starving people in Africa, please Jesus, place your Curse of Justice on the Catholic Church and help us writing, spineless, cowards, to promote Pope John Paul as a candidate for hell Amen.”

I’m Not Just Talk, Dam Me If I Wrong:
“Thank you Jesus for not allowing me to become immune to my Countries coldness: A coldness where our government leaders talk of Your Christian values but grow corn for gasoline, not for the starving. Please Jesus, place Your painful Curse Of Justice on those deserving hypercritics and their next ten generations. Jesus, I beg you to please let Your Just-full Curse of pain be witnessed so others will learn and thus help the poor. If I’m wrong in this request of the obvious then dam me to hell.”

Writers and want 2-B’s like me could pretend to be a child and then infiltrate websites to see if molesters try and make arrangements for a meeting. Innocent websites can lead to rape as described on April 4, 2006 by Justin Berry, a witness in the Energy and Commerce Committee investigation. Listed below are innocent writing websites that could attract molesters trying to make contact with children.

My favorite writing book:
“Finding Your Voice: How To Put Personality In Your Writing” By Les Edgerton.
Page 220 says, “Too often writers forget their first task is to write for themselves and, in so doing, please themselves first.”

I use, please myself first attitude, because it makes my writing hobby and art hobby relaxing. I don’t have to please others, progress comes at it’s own enjoyable pace.

Two of the many witness at the investigation:
1. 19-year-old Justin Berry, an excellent student from Bakersfield, CA, at 13 with encouragement by molesters, started showing pictures of himself over the Internet with his shirt off. After receiving gifts (web-cam) and encouragement from Internet molesters Justin Berry started masturbating over the Internet. After a time child Internet molesters raped Justin. Justin testified under oath the rapists on more then one occasion laughed at the thought that Justin would be looked at as the victim if he went to the police. Justin is saddened that his government is unresponsive about him being raped.

2. New York Times Reporter Kurt Eichenwald, testified he helped Justin Berry clean up his troubled life. Reporter Eichenwald was also very upset about the slow involvement by the Justice Department regarding exploitation of children over the Internet and wrote articles in the New York Times about that fact. Reporter Eichenwald spoke about his Times articles at Marquette University. Marquette is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the home of United States House Judiciary Committee Chairman, James Sensenbrenner.

In Conclusion:
The United States House Judiciary Committee Chairman James Sensenbrenner, should be calling for the investigation about child exploitation on the Internet not the Energy and Commerce Committee. The Judiciary committee could make laws to put the child molesters in jail for molesting children. The Energy and Commerce Committee goes after those abusing energy and commerce laws.

Now this shows me and I ask how about you, does Sensenbrenner seem pathetic in his responsibilities? I ask you this question based on Justin Berry and Reporter Eichenwald’s statements while under oath.
