Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Movie Review: Harry's War

I watched this movie via recommendation over at Lew Rockwell. It's available on Netflix, my only source of TV these days. The plot is a little contrived: a guy inherits an army surplus "store", but how else are you going to take on the Feds? There are a lot of good lines in this movie that patriotic Americans and anti US-bankster cartel government people will like. Of course, the media actually is on Harry's side - in our day, the TV media would be on the take and the guy would have been David Koreshed-BBQ. The most important question this movie asks is "who gave them the power to tax us anyway?" Readers of this blog and the Creature from Jekyll Island know the answer to this question - a few monopoly men set up the IRS to put those not in their loop at a disadvantage and keep the edge for themselves. Don't worry, though, we've got one presidential candidate whose only paying job was infiltrating them to "know the enemy" Sun Tzu style. But here's the exciting finale with some spoilers just to warn ya:


  1. I had not seen this, but it does pose a good question. Why does the IRS not have to work within the confines of the constitution? After decades of this should we be surprised by the way the TSA operates?

  2. Because they have guns, a lot of guns. The TSA is a little more kinky with it.
