The State is a scurvy dog

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Tell politicians to walk the plank, to go first if they want to disarm anyone, and then keelhaul them when they refuse to mind their own business and stay out of ours. 

Or, go a different route and say "I do the job, 'n' then I get paid. Go run your little world."

Of course, politicians, bureaucrats, and their ilk are the real pirates of today. The dull gray, bad kind of pirate, not the colorful, interesting kind of pirate. And much less ethical than those disgusting Somali "pirates".

So, I guess if you want to talk like a pirate, but don't want to be saying "Arrr, hand over the booty, me hearties" or other fun quips about bungholes, chum, and treasure chests, you can say awful things like "License and registration, please" and "Taxation isn't theft; it's the price we pay to live in a civilized [sic] society".

This blog is my job. You get to decide if I get paid. 
Please consider it.
Thank you.
