Thomas Jefferson was never much of a warrior history tells us, but yet again history is wrong. This is an image of one of the many attempts by Jefferson to battle all the manliest animals on earth while trying to teach them the ways of America.

FDR, arguable one of the best presidents of all time. Known for his program "The New Deal" and other such accomplishments, what is not not known is his many victories in battle against many different types of enemies. FDR possessed great power and technology as can be seen from his transforming wheel chair in which he slayed many foes.

Why is it that the stupidest talking points also tend to be the most heavily repeated? If I had a dime for every time I heard Somalia used as an example of libertarianism or free-market capitalism, my fortune could possibly rival that of Bill Gates.

Somalia has no form of government. That means it’s under anarchy. Libertarians and free-market capitalists do want government; they just want to limit its power over the people, especially the market. Therefore, Somalia is not an example of either libertarianism or free-market capitalism.

Unfortunately, such logic does not pervade the minds of libtarded moonbats like Sam Seder, who recently claimed that the best way to debunk libertarians is to simply let them talk.

VIDEO: How To Debunk A Libertarian: Let Them Talk
The free market does not exist. There is no unencumbered market.…Maybe in Somalia.…That’s what a free market is. It is feudalism. It is who has got more guns…or swords, and arrows. They’re the ones who are going to…accumulate the most wealth. Capitalism can only function properly with strong government controls that protect consumers and workers from the excesses of capitalism. It’s not even the excesses. It’s the operation of capitalism.
I love how he assumes that libertarianism or free-market capitalism is about allowing whoever has the most guns the right to rule, even though both philosophies reject the use of force through the non-aggression principle. As one person said in the comment section: “Well, if that's his concern then it makes no sense to grant the state exclusive monopoly on the use of the biggest, baddest guns in society, does it?”

But Seder is half-right about the free market. There has been no true free market, as all markets have had some level of regulation, which is necessary to an extent. However, there are markets which are freer than others, the perfect example being Hong Kong. From Wikipedia:
As one of the world's leading international financial centers, Hong Kong has a major capitalist service economy characterized by low taxation and free trade. The currency, Hong Kong dollar, is the eight most traded currency in the world as of 2010. Hong Kong was once described by Milton Friedman as the world’s greatest experiment in laissez-faire capitalism. It maintains a highly developed capitalist economy, ranked the freest in the world by the Index of Economic Freedom for 15 consecutive years. It is an important centre for international finance and trade, with one of the greatest concentrations of corporate headquarters in the Asia-Pacific region, and is known as one of the Four Asian Tigers for its high growth rates and rapid development from the 1960s to the 1990s. Between 1961 and 1997 Hong Kong's gross domestic product grew 180 times while per-capita GDP increased 87 times over.

The Hong Kong Stock Exchange is the seventh largest in the world, with a market capitalization of US$2.3 trillion as of December 2009. In that year, Hong Kong raised 22 percent of worldwide initial public offering (IPO) capital, making it the largest centre of IPOs in the world and the easiest place to raise capital. Hong Kong's currency is the Hong Kong dollar, which has been pegged to the U.S. dollar since 1983.

The Hong Kong Government has traditionally played a mostly passive role in the economy, with little by way of industrial policy and almost no import or export controls. Market forces and the private sector were allowed to determine practical development. Under the official policy of "positive non-interventionism", Hong Kong is often cited as an example of laissez-faire capitalism. Following the Second World War, Hong Kong industrialized rapidly as a manufacturing centre driven by exports, and then underwent a rapid transition to a service-based economy in the 1980s. Since then, it has grown to become a leading center for management, financial, IT, business consultation and professional services.
Hong Kong is but the leading example. The remaining Top 10 freest economies are Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, Canada, Ireland, Denmark, the United States, and Bahrain. As for Somalia, it isn’t even listed on the Index of Economic Freedom World Rankings. So much for it being a libertarian free market paradise!

“Looking Ahead: The Next Ten Years”
from “Speech to Conservative Central Council” by Margaret Thatcher (1986)


There has been the odd report recently that Thatcherism has run its course, and is on its way out.

As an informed source close to Downing Street, I have to report that those reports are eyewash. We're only just beginning.

We've barely got past the stage of excavation, let alone of topping out!

You may feel that the first seven years of Conservative Government have produced some benefits for Britain.

And so they have.

But the next seven are going to produce more—many more.

And the next seven after that, more still.

Let me tell you why.

Conservatism is not some abstract theory.

It's a crusade to put power in the hands of ordinary people.

And a very popular crusade it is proving. Tenants are jumping at the opportunity to buy their own council houses.

Workers are jumping at the opportunity to buy shares in their own privatised companies.

Trade unionists are jumping at the opportunity, which the ballot box now gives them, to decide "who rules" in their union.

And the rest of Britain is looking on with approval.

For popular capitalism is biting deep.

It used to be Socialists who talked of crusades.

Well, let them launch a new one on the old Socialist lines.

What about a Socialist crusade to rehabilitate that old favourite, the municipal landlord, and to lure home owners back into becoming council tenants?

Or a socialist crusade to re-nationalise Vickers, and take back the workers' shares.

Or a Socialist crusade to abolish bothersome union ballots and get back to the good old days of Big Brother.

After all, these aims are the very heartbeat of Socialism.

But you may have noticed how muted nowadays are the trumpets for such Socialist crusades.

For popular capitalism, which is the economic expression of liberty, is proving a much more attractive means for diffusing power in our society.

Socialists cry "Power to the people", and raise the clenched fist as they say it.

We all know what they really mean—power over people, power to the State.


To us Conservatives, popular capitalism means what it says: power through ownership to the man and woman in the street, given confidently with an open hand.

About the Speaker (from Wikipedia):

Margaret Hilda Thatcher, Baroness Thatcher, LG, OM, PC, FRS, née Roberts (born 13 October 1925) is a British politician, the longest-serving (1979–1990) Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of the 20th century, and the only woman ever to have held the post. A Soviet journalist nicknamed her the "Iron Lady", which became associated with her uncompromising politics and leadership style. As Prime Minister, she implemented Conservative policies that have come to be known as Thatcherism.

Originally a research chemist before becoming a barrister, Thatcher was elected Member of Parliament (MP) for Finchley in 1959. Edward Heath appointed her Secretary of State for Education and Science in his 1970 government. In 1975 Thatcher defeated Heath in the Conservative Party leadership election and became Leader of the Opposition, as well as the first woman to lead a major political party in the United Kingdom. She became Prime Minister after winning the 1979 general election.

After entering 10 Downing Street, Thatcher introduced a series of political and economic initiatives to reverse what she perceived to be Britain's precipitous national decline.[nb 1] Her political philosophy and economic policies emphasised deregulation (particularly of the financial sector), flexible labour markets, the privatisation of state-owned companies, and reducing the power and influence of trade unions. Thatcher's popularity during her first years in office waned amid recession and high unemployment, until economic recovery and the 1982 Falklands War brought a resurgence of support, resulting in her re-election in 1983.

Thatcher was re-elected for a third term in 1987, but her Community Charge (popularly referred to as "poll tax") was widely unpopular and her views on the European Community were not shared by others in her Cabinet. She resigned as Prime Minister and party leader in November 1990, after Michael Heseltine launched a challenge to her leadership. Thatcher holds a life peerage as Baroness Thatcher, of Kesteven in the County of Lincolnshire, which entitles her to sit in the House of Lords.

Anti-Ron Paul Sticker from Zazzle.com: [link]

Even though Barack Obama has failed to end the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, started military conflict in Libya, continuously extended the Patriot Act, authorized the assassination of American citizens, called for the prosecution of the growth and distribution of medical marijuana, created an economic stimulus that failed to stimulate the economy, and bailed out the banks and auto industries, Democrats would still vote for Obama rather than Ron Paul—even though he has opposed all of the above!

The reasons they have for hating Ron Paul are trivial at best. They argue that he is a Republican, even though he’s the sanest one in his party, and more anti-war and pro-civil liberties than any Democrat—including Obama! They argue that he doesn’t believe in evolution, which isn’t shocking in a country where only 39 percent do. They argue that he doesn’t believe in separation of church and state, even though he has opposed faith-based initiatives. They argue that he has “insane” and “radical” ideas like returning to the gold standard (because our current fiat currency is fairing so well!) and allowing states to set their own laws on abortion, gay marriage, and drugs—an idea based upon the Tenth Amendment.

In the end, there really is no excuse for not voting for Ron Paul. No one could reasonably compare Obama and Paul and decide that Obama was the better choice, unless, of course, they were the youthful ideologues who truly believed in his message of “Hope and Change”—even though the past term has seen very little hope or change. Of course, one can always give Obama another four years to see if such hope and change will eventually come about. My question is: can America survive for that long?

Marquis de Lafayette. Alexander Hamilton. John Laurens.

I just got this super mega fully-colored encyclopedia about the uniforms in the American Rev and holy bajeezus it's so helpful and just 10/10.

Friends on Tumblr have inspired me to draw John, who've I'm ashamed to admit I've never done before (I also hardly ever do more than one person at a time -ahem lazy ahem-) so it all added up to be a really fun/challenging/uberly researched project..Whew!

so this was not exactly the feel I was going for. I was trying so hard to beat "Ascendancy" quality wise and I failed.

It's either I polish something too much and it loses all the energy, or i leave it too unpolished, and it just looks like a sketch. At some point.. I will have to learn how get over that.
But oh well.

Have some redcoats.

So, here's my take on what Mario would look like after these last 25 years of fighting for his love.

A little battle damaged and jaded in my opinion. I might do a whole piece with all the characters in this style. We'll see.
