VW’s Politically Incorrect Chick Car…

There are men’s – and women’s – clothes. Different cut, different colors, different emphasis. No one sane complains that either derogates the other. If anything, the opposite. Women’s clothes make women look better; men’s also. It’s kind of the point. They are tailored to fit their different bodies and different preferences. Because the sexes are…

Cars Have Become Sail Fawns

sail-fawn-lead

Modern cars are increasingly analogous to consumer electronics. They are basically throw-aways. They are either not cost-effective to fix after a certain point or they become obsolete, insofar as not being the “latest” things. Of course this was also true in the past. A car accrued miles; eventually it wore out. But the cost to…

Road Clovers

It may be the fluoridation of the water. Possibly the chem trails. Perhaps it is an assault at the micro-genetic level. Who can say? Whatever the source, Cloverism is propagating. They are everywhere.I thought five chapters (see here, here, here, here and here) would cover it. But it seems there are still a few more…

What’s a Clover?

double cross

I get asked – what’s a Clover? Definition herewith: * Clover (noun): The root cause of every affront to liberty. The spoonful of poo that ruins a gallon of ice cream. Clovers are instinctive authoritarian control freaks. They can be found on the political left and the political right and in between. They do not believe in…

A Libertarian Lexicon

brown quote

Well, an EPautos Libertarian Lexicon! I get asked frequently about the meaning of some commonly used terms, known to EPautos regulars but less well-known to people new to this corner of the Libertarian universe. These form the core lingua franca of the dialogue here, but much more important, they serve as a convenient shorthand for conveying certain…

Why I Like The Donald and May Even Vote for Him

Billy lead

Voting amounts to answering that question about whether you’ve stopped beating your wife. There’s no winning. Best to keep your mouth shut. But – god help me –  I may just vote for Trump. Not because I like Trump – I suspect his Dear Leader tendencies – but because I love what he has done to Jeb! and…

Anarchy Works!

anarchy lead

“Anarchy” is one of those words that many people react to emotionally – having been conditioned to do so. The word has become generally synonymous with chaos and disorder. Dog eat dog. As EPautos’ king troll (Clover; see here for more about him) puts it, anarchy means “do whatever the hell you like.” Well, no. Anarchy, strictly defined,…

It Is “Just a Piece of **** Paper”

piece of paper lead

We’re supposed to revere – and follow – the Constitution. But if they don’t, why should we? By they, I mean the people who lord it over us. Our rulers. I choose the word deliberately, in the interests of editorial accuracy. We’re certainly not ruled by the Constitution. And neither are they. Consider, for instance,…

Ode to the Carburetor

carb lead

Once upon a time, there was a simple mechanical device that fed fuel to your car’s engine. It had no electrical hook-ups, was not dependent on sensors nor controlled by a computer. It was held in place by four bolts and could be physically removed from the engine in less than five minutes with basic hand…
