    If you download and install AVG antivirus free version, you can get a fully functional trial of its PC Performance software for a month, I believe, that will find and fix a host of issues and registry problems. It is as good or better than many commercial products like Registry Repair Wizard.

    When it is done, you just remove it, though the antivirus software is still good if you like AVG.

    On an older system, I wouldn’t be surprised if it found more than a thousand mostly minor problems. But that stuff adds up.

    This is an early opportunity for voters to show the elitists that they will not tolerate their fixing of the primary race.

    The obvious thing is to loudly boycott this farce, to get the message out that the only people there are the supporters the candidates have bused in likely from out of state.

    A few observers should show up, so there can be a rough head count of people departing from buses, and holding group meetings in advance of the debate.

    Most conservative and orthodox religions have flags, and it sends a powerful message when people of faith raise their religious flag, *above* the US flag, that God is superior to man.

    Technically, it is a violation of “flag etiquette”, but such etiquette is meaningless to those who would hoist a homosexual flag, so if they complain, they can be told to “bugger off”.

    Someone made a very interesting observation about situations “the authorities hush up so as not to cause a public panic.”

    They pointed out what is never said: what exactly is a public panic?

    They reached the conclusion that a public panic is four or more people, running down a block while waving their arms and screaming. Then, when they get to the end of the block, they turn around and run in the opposite direction, waving their arms and screaming.

    They noted that a public panic sounds quite aerobic, as a form of exercise, and should be encouraged, not discouraged, by the government.

  • TRUMP NO LONGER EVEN PRETENDS TO BE A REPUBLICAN

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to libstripper

    Trump is performing a very useful service right now, and in his absence, *nobody* else would carry out this role.

    On the Republican side, this primary race was intended to be no race at all. To start with, the tiny number of big money corporate backers had no intention of permitting a challenge to their anointed candidate.

    Second, a lot of the candidates are not seriously running for the office, but for cabinet appointments by the winner. So they aren’t going to say or do anything that could cost them this job. Just mumble inanities.

    Third, the anointed candidates are all about marginalizing conservatives, the rank and file of the party. This is the ‘Empire Strikes Back’ moment, open warfare by the anti-conservatives like the Chamber of Commerce.

    But by forcing them into the light, making them say what they really think, Trump is putting them on record in ways increasingly hard to weasel out of later, when unless they get the votes of the defeated conservatives, they get nothing.

    So we should give our full support to the Trump campaign, until what he is doing stops chasing the turkeys around the pen like a yapping dachshund.

    What gets me about this raid is that it seemed to be a very “professional” job. By this I mean considerable planning and forethought, and some degree of discipline by the robbers.

    They knew it was a harder target, so planned accordingly and used two vehicles, a ramming vehicle and a getaway vehicle, with the idea that the ramming vehicle had a good chance of being disabled.

    With that much planning, they also knew that time was at a great premium, so needed to identify what would be stolen that was of high value, light and easy to carry. Once the gate was breeched, they all had to work very quickly.

    Hit by gunfire, they immediately fled and didn’t try to shoot it out, and when the one went to the hospital, he had nothing to say.

    Based on these things, I suspect the robbers were a robbery gang, likely from out of state, knew exactly what they wanted to steal and had a fence waiting to take the hot merchandise.

    I think a businessman had a better solution. Vandals had been spray painting the wall of his building next to the parking lot, so he got crafty, and put some high pressure fluid lines with spray heads inside the wall.

    So when the creeps came to tag his wall, his security guys would spot it on their surveillance camera, then open the valve in front of the tagger. A big spray of bright neon orange or green paint would blast them.

    The security guys did a video compilation for the rest of the employees, who thought it was hilarious.

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to jimbo123

    Bush has reached the summit where he has no supporters but the very wealthy and corporations. He should be running for president of the Chamber of Commerce, because he thinks they are his only constituency.

    All the millions he has accumulated so far are from a tiny number of people, about 30,000 total. And only 3% of his donations were under $200.

    While his backers probably crave something like the Rollerball (1975) Corporate Anthem of the one-world corporate government, so far the best they can come up with for Jeb Bush is Devo’s Corporate Anthem.

    This just gets weirder and weirder. The judge has long appeared to have it in for Arpaio, but refuses to recuse himself over some significant conflict of interest.

    Then Arpaio gets word from some guy that the Just Us Department is intercepting both his communications and those of the federal judge. So Arpaio launches an investigation to find out if this is true. It turns out the guy was a con artist who sold hard drives full of al-Jazeera broadcasts.

    Then the judge finds out about the investigation and is mad at Arpaio for not turning over those worthless hard drives to him.

    Another thing is that a disgraced former deputy committed suicide, and it turned out he had a huge collection of fake ID cards confiscated from illegal aliens. And the judge is upset with Arpaio for not turning all those fake IDs over to him as well.

    So the bottom line is that the whole thing has degenerated into a schoolyard spat, with the judge pushing hard to get Arpaio to resign, but being unable so far to force it, and getting angry and stomping his feet and demanding more and more unrelated things to find something he can use to force Arpaio out of office.

    In the Wallace Beery version of Treasure Island (1934), one of the last movies before the Motion Picture Production Code, they slipped in this little pirate gem:

    Why, I know some seafaring men,
    them as boarded a Spanish brig...
    ...all loaded down with
    Castilian dons and their beauteous ladies.
    And what did they do?
    Genteel like me, ye thinks?
    No. They slices them dons
    like bread loaves...
    ...and feeds them to the sharks.
    And what did they do
    to the beauteous ladies?
    Why, after courting their favor,

    as it were...

    ...saving your presence, matey...
    ...they slits the veins
    of their pearly white arms...
    ...and uses their blue blood
    to warm their rum.

    There was a colorful old Mexican anecdote of a well to do man planning a long and difficult trip, who needed a hollowed, dried gourd to carry his water. He was offered several gourds that all looked fine on the surface. So he insisted that each be filled with water first, to see if they were water tight.

    Sure enough, all but a few leaked, and of those, only one had a watertight cork. Learning from the experience, he chose his traveling companions the same way, making each carry out a difficult task. Only one proved capable of handling the pressure, and who after being chosen said he was grateful to accompany the wealthy man.

    But the wealthy man explained to him that he was not just a traveling companion, that by proving himself, he was fit to lead the trip.

    In any event, the same rule applies to all these Republican gourds hoping to get the nomination. Before anything else, they have to prove they can handle the pressure.

    Old technology. No reason to risk a flight crew, especially when the operation can have “plausible deniability”. The Israelis might even ‘spice it up a bit’ with false evidence pointing the finger at someone else.

    Importantly, an attack on Iran’s dams would be just one part of a massive unconventional operation. A “mad bomber” attack on their national infrastructure could foul up everything for months or years.

    The most sensible attacks for Israel to make are unconventional and indirect. For example, Iran has a large number of dams and reservoirs.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_dams_and_reservoirs_in_Iran

    Properly attacked, the destruction of some of these would cripple Iran in many ways, both power and water. Popping a dam upriver can knock out several dams downriver as well.

    The Israelis could easily make a robotic minisub, dropped in a dam’s reservoir late at night, which would quietly guide itself to the dam, at just the right depth, then use what amounts to a very large shaped charge to blow a hole in the dam. Water pressure alone would do the rest.

    Since Christians can obviously not win in a fight against these tyrants, at least in the short or mid term, their best bet is to evade them with strategy.

    This amounts to forming “faith based” organizations with exclusive contracts with churches that reject homosexualism.

    If people want wedding services, they have to go through one of these particular churches. If they want prescription drugs, they have to go through one of these particular churches.

    Legally, it means that Christian based businesses can no longer offer services “to the public”, but only through exclusive contracts with these churches. However, the more businesses that join these faith based cooperatives, in contracts with these churches, the better it will be for the businesses involved.

    In practical terms, cash under your exclusive control is best for either inflation or deflation or bank panic. Remember that with *any* disruption in virtual money that exists only on computer and bank instruments, paper money and coin exists only in large enough quantity to support 4% of US daily retail. In effect, it is instantly 75% deflated right now.

    Businesses *must* accept paper money and coin, because it is legal tender. But circumstances can shift rapidly so that they can and will legally refuse to accept any other form of payment.

    So think of a situation where you, where everyone, can only buy anything if they have cash. Instant, massive deflation because of money shortage.

    In Weimar Germany, some people got pension money paid to them in US dollars, worth vastly more than the hyperinflating German currency. Even at the onset, a brand new luxury car could be purchased for $150, whereas just before it would have cost say $30,000 (in 1921).

    Everybody wanted US dollars.

  • Returning To The Moon Is Ten Times Cheaper Than Thought, And It Could Lead To Mars

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to 2ndDivisionVet

    The best bet for returning to the Moon is based on the idea of “cumulative” results. That is, every mission there improves the place, so missions are not redundant, and can last on the Moon longer and be more productive.

    The cheapest and best way to do this with existing technology is to first send nuclear powered tunneling robots. Horizontal tunnel habitats in the interior walls of crater cliffs, plugged with pressure doors, solves the big problems on the Moon.

    They protect from vacuum, extremes of heat and cold, cosmic and enhanced radiation, and the very abrasive Lunar dust. The robots could begin years before people set foot on the Moon, and continue to tunnel even after the people leave, creating a larger and larger habitat. And while the people visit, they would have abundant energy from the robots nuclear power.

    Since the robots would be on a one way trip to the Moon, their landers could be designed to be cannibalized for pressure doors, structural supports, ceiling, walls and floor, all “plug and play” for that purpose, wired with electrical and other conduits.

    And, after a substantial, permanent Moon base was built, the concept could be reused to go to Mars. A far more hospitable place if improved by robots for years before we set foot on it.

    In all fairness, the mess goes back very far. In Eisenhower and Nixon’s day they were the “Country Club Republicans”; before then they were the Coolidge Republicans.

    The first conservative revolt against them was under Goldwater. The establishment hated him because he was an honest man with money, so they could neither blackmail nor bribe him.

    They insisted that if he won there would be nuclear war, but the truth is that he would have decisively ended the New Deal, broken the Democrat’s stranglehold on the South, and made the US economy both much stronger yet independent of international influences.

    .22LR is remarkably effective in most circumstances, with the added bonus of carrying more bullets.

    Yet another reason is that abdomen shots might not be immediately fatal, but are peculiar in causing deadly peritonitis a few days later, which often kills even with medical care.

    So the villain runs away, tries to tough it out for a bit, goes to the hospital where he is identified, gets a little surgery that misses a nick or two, seems to be doing fine, then suddenly gets a sky high fever too late for antibiotics to save him.

    Corporate uniformity always touts that it is cheaper, has less wastage, and that customers prefer uniformity over local variations.

    While they have some arguments with this, the flip side is also true. Uniformity also means a loss of quality, an inability to exploit local bargains, a very dedicated clientele, and lower customer satisfaction.

    Some years ago an interesting paradox happened in city planning. Cities wanted to have family friendly business districts with locally owned stores and a more leisurely pace. The problem is that this is exactly where national retail franchise chains want to be as well.

    That is, the corporate chains crave to be surrounded by small, locally owned businesses, not other corporate chains. But *all* the corporate chains want this. And are willing to fight in court to not be excluded, and they have very deep pockets.

    And once there is an opening, the corporate chains fight to take over the space of the small, locally owned businesses, pushing them out, and end up turning what had been a pleasant place into just another decaying, dirty corporate chain clog, full of unhappy minimum wage employees, and with an emphasis on “buy then get out, rush, rush, rush!”

    Which is exactly the opposite of what was wanted.

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to Kaslin

    I don’t see this as a problem. I see it as a sign of greater *honesty*

    With the fall of TV, magazines and other commercial media, comes a great liberation from advertisement. In the 1960s, ‘70’s, and ‘80’s, children were bombarded with “sex sells” advertisements, convincing many that all their peers were hypersexual, but they were sexual failures because they weren’t. Which could be cured if you will buy our product.

    But there is only a tiny fraction of that propagandistic barrage of advertisement left on the Internet.

    Certainly broad segments of the Internet are about pornography. But porn is just “the end result”. It tells you nothing about how to get there. How to attract someone sexually. What you must look like and what you have to do.

    Importantly, look at who is talking.

    The “perverted left” want children to be perverts as well, sexually active long before they are physically, intellectually, or emotionally.

    As far as Rush Limbaugh goes, he has some distorted views as well, in past attributing sex as the cause of most human activity.

    But the bottom line to all of this is likely that children today are not as neurotic about sex as were children just a generation ago. When someone asks if they have had sex, they have no compelling reason to lie and say yes.

    For a long time, the US military has vetted its disabled, who must be periodically re-evaluated to insure they are actually disabled. While this has the rare boo-boo, such as questioning an amputee whether they are still disabled, for the most part, it does police up many gold brickers.

    No reason in the world such vetting shouldn’t be used in the civilian world. Every fraud in the system deprives the legitimately disabled of benefits.

  • Trump’s Mobbed Up, McCarthyite Mentor Roy Cohn

    While there is tremendous hatred of Roy Cohn by Democrats, more than anything else it is because he was instrumental in tearing apart much of the Soviet sponsored communist infrastructure that had been built in the US. He was also a member of the U.S. Department of Justice’s prosecution team at the espionage trial of nuclear spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg.

    The bitterness of the left against Cohn, a hate-filled effort to deconstruct his life and legacy, is seen in numerous efforts to retroactively destroy him.

    Though likely homosexual himself, he owed no loyalty to homosexual communists, which he purged like all other communists; for which they call him hypocritical. No, that wasn’t hypocrisy. It was patriotism.

    The rest of the world is wising up. More and more nations are realizing that such adoptions and surrogacy are not happening for the benefit of the children, but for ulterior motives by the western “parents”. And some of these ulterior motives are downright evil.

    Unfortunately, this threat won’t work. This is because the Republican National Committee would rather a Democrat win than a Republican they hadn’t groomed.

    The RNC has long realized that there are only two political factions in the US they can tolerate: their own, multinational corporate internationalists; and socialist internationalists.

    They cannot and will not tolerate true conservatives, American nationalist-patriots, constitutionalists, and those that want to see America as the dominant superpower in the world without dependance on other nations for its power, prosperity and self-determination.

    Donald Trump makes them miserable, because they cannot just choose the candidate they want, and surround him with empty suit candidates to dissipate the real challengers to “their boy”.

    Brash and populist, Trump brings up issues that they do not want discussed, because they have no answers for them acceptable to the rank and file. And when “their boy” and the empty suits feel compelled to say what they think about those issues, they are seen as what they truly are: naked and weak, with bad and unpopular ideas.

    The weak point in the system is the notification alerts.

    Just today there is a news story about a failure of a similar notification system.

    Practice is vital in such situations. Even in karate schools, wooden or rubber knives and cap guns are common, because you have to learn the actual variables involved in their use. Knives and guns are not magical, and both have very strict rules for their proper and effective use.

    Importantly, this matters both for the “defender” *and* the “attacker”, which like in this Nicaraguan case, are just labels. The knife man was the defender until he became the attacker.

    Just a single hour of training with a friend teaches volumes, if you are both willing to play it straight. And even the imaginary bullets of a cap gun or the “slashes” and “pokes” of a piece of broomstick register in your brain as ‘hits’.

    “If this had been an actual bullet or knife, I would be bleeding right now.”

    Oddly enough, a similar discussion came up with the issue of concealed carry on campus. The idea was that students and faculty who cc’d could voluntarily join an emergency text messaging service, so that if there was a campus event, they could take up discreet concealed and covered positions near the entrance of their building, while everyone else remained in their classrooms.

    Lot of bugs in the idea, but it did raise the concept of tactical building security against an unspecified threat.

    It’s truly agonizing for the “empty suits” to be shown to be empty suits. They would much prefer blathering inanities and platitudes, with everyone in the group all winning “participation awards” like at the Special Olympics.

    This is probably their ideal answer to *any* question:

    “I think this is an issue of integrity regardless of which end of the political spectrum that I stand on. I was raised in a family to know right from wrong and politics, whether or not you fall in the middle, the left or the right, it’s an issue of integrity, no matter what your opinion is, and I say that with the utmost conviction.”

    McCain is one of the least loved politicians in Arizona. But he has both his wife, the beer heiress’s deep pockets, and big corporations that fund him; and he has psychotic, hate filled rages against anyone that challenges him.

    Make no mistake, if you cross him, he will try to not only destroy you politically, but socially, economically, legally and in any other way. He will do the same to your family and friends.

    If you crossed a Mafia don, it would be “just business”, but McCain is a psycho. If the Democrats would run a candidate who wasn’t an extremist loser, he would beat McCain by 30% or more.

    Tactically speaking, they shouldn’t be standing out in front of the recruiting station. Instead they should be a discreet distance away, with a concealed carry weapon, and immediate cover and hopefully concealment from any return fire.

    If needed, their first shots should be stabilized, and the downrange from their shots checked ahead of time.

    Finally, beware of car bombs.
