Cloverific Grade School Primer

clover lead

The following is interesting on several levels: First, contemplate¬†the atrocious – borderline illiterate – construction of this instruction; the Cloverific short-bus cadences: “That means you are a member of our country.” “How can you be a part of giving back for the freedom you have?” “Good citizens take part in their community… that you show…

Dear Clover…

A woman walks past a building decorated with eyes in Crimean city of Sevastopol

EPautos’ resident authoritarian apologist – Clover – let fly with the following intellectually (and grammatically) palsied, ethically crippled commentary in defense of dragnet-style, random and arbitrary “safety” checkpoints: Eric asking you to stop and talk for 10 seconds is in no way injurious to you. If you believe it is violence to be stopped then…

Vidcast: Presumptive guilt

pre crime lead

This Vidcast was inspired by my muse, Clover, whose every view seems to be based on the idea of presumptive guilt. This is an idea similar to “pre-crime” – if you remember the movie (based on the novel by the great Phillip K. Dick) but takes things a step farther. Pre-crime at least focuses on…

Corvette Clover!

Cloverina 1

Well, it was a Cloverina (female Clover). But, nonetheless – an exemplar of the species. Here’s the story: I was coming home from Lowes in my little pick-up truck, an ’02 Nissan Frontier with the four-cylinder engine. Not a hot rod by any stretch of the imagination – especially with the bed loaded down with…

Clover and The Fourth Amendment

constitution burning

A Clover – EPautos’ term for people of the left and right persuasion, who love government force and despise individual rights – wrote the following love note to me in response to a post about Florida cops randomly stopping people and forcing them to submit to an inspection of the contents of their beverage cups…

A New Species of Clover

When things start going bad, they almost always get worse. Driving, for instance. Passivity and ineptitude behind the wheel have been almost deified as the apotheosis of “defensive” and “safe” driving. Not surprisingly, passive and inept driving is now the rule rather than the exception. One can never – apparently – be too “safe.” Hence,…

Conversations With Clover – Part Deux

It is important to understand what we’re up against – those of us who oppose human interactions based on violence. And what we’re up against is . . . Clover. This Unknown Troll has plagued EPautos for years; but as annoying as he is, he does serve a valuable purpose. His posts give us insight…

“Clover” & “Gil”

The other day, Prison Planet published an article about government trolls who are paid to post disruptive comments on contrarian (anti-government/anti-corporate) web sites. We’ve long suspected such trolls have attempted to cause problems here. Now we have proof. EPautos’ most legendary troll, of course, is Clover. He’s been posting his non sequiturs here for years.…

The Speed Limit Cargo Cult

cargo cult lead

One of the oddest totemistic fetishes of our age is worship of metal signs with various symbols imprinted upon them. Speed limit signs, for instance. People are supposed to reflexively obey them – and are subject to punishment if they do not. Rarely – to paraphrase George W. Bush – is the question asked: Why…
