Judge Napolitano Cross-Examines The Declaration of Independents

|

On Friday, June 24, Fox Business Network's Freedom Watch program broadcast an interview between host Andrew Napolitano and The Declaration of Independents co-authors Matt Welch and Nick Gillespie. Nearly six minutes of independent, libertarianny goodness!

  1. I refuse to watch any interview with gillespie or welch or read any article that’s titled “declaration of independents” until it is confirmed that you are no longer hawking your fishwrap, birdcage lining, recycle bin filling, paper weight substituting foray into the publishing world. I get it, you are libertarians, you have a new book with a clever title, and it’s for sale somewhere. I’m not changing my mind and purchasing it, so let’s move on. How long can you state the same thing? For me, it’s been long enough. You’re like the knob who had a very clever one liner somewhere back in the day, but kept using it over and over until he was politely uninvited to any future event.

    1. How long can you state the same thing?

      Until you purchase the book.

      1. So

        Reason

        is

        spamming

        their

        own

        website

        then

        1. I believe it is called “shameless self promotion.”

          1. Nice graphic. Who says you can’t teach a Neu Mejican an old trick?

    2. Who the fuck are you? Shut up and go away.

      1. It’s almost as if he/she thinks they’re not on Nick/Matt’s website and is instead on one that he/she owns and maintains and lets us on it for free.

        1. I’ve never seen the handle before, and the tone is not familiar, so I feel comfortable telling this one to shut the fuck up. Fucking trolls.

  2. Is Nick wearing The Jacket???
    Corporate filters and stuff, I can’t see.

      @ I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to
      our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a
      46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get
      all this stuff, BetaSell.com

  3. Next think you know, they’re going to ask us to subscribe to some magazine.

    1. Or go on some cruise.

  4. Where is lobster girl?

  5. Gillispe is wrong. Obama didn’t win because of “Bush fatigue.”

    Obama won because he appealed ICONICALLY to racists — blacks, women, queers, Latinos.

    Obama stands as the icon for what generations of racists have been indoctrinated through public education about blackists, feminists, queerists, Hispanicists.

    For racism means organizing a group based on and arbitrary characteristic — skin color, no penis, sex fetish, foreign language — and then racing for the spoils of political privilege, typically income redistribution through welfare and job quotas.

    Dummies have been taught to confuse racism with racialism (living by the belief that people of one’s race is superior to others, aka bigotry).

    1. I see how this works. I can redefine a word and then call people it.

      You, sir, are a racist. For racism means saying stupid things.

      1. Bravo. My eyes were rolling into the back of my head. I’m glad someone pointed this out.

        Also: indoctrinate indoctrinate indoctrinate indoctrinate indoctrinate indoctrinate indoctrinate.

        Good lawd.

      2. You are right to refer to me as sir, for you should respect your superiors, always. That’s the easiest way for you to avoid getting beaten.

        Merely because you suffer from a mediocre IQ intellect and conflate racism with racialism doesn’t mean the rest of the world does.

        Racism is living by forming a group based on arbitrary characteristics and then racing for the spoils of political privilege. It’s a political doctrine, an offshoot of socialism.

        Racialism is living by the belief that one’s race is superior to others. It’s an anthropological doctrine.

        To which one of the racists do you belong, poor-minded Bee Tagger?

        Are you a feminist, a queer, a blackist or a La Raza mestizo?

    2. NRO is thattaway, dude.

  6. For some reason my brain saw “Janeane Garafolo” instead of “Judge Napolitano”.

    1. That’s funny because before I read the captions and headline the picture, on my computer anyway, was out of focus and Nick looked like a really ugly woman – and is any woman uglier outside and in that Garafolo?
