  • It’s virtually impossible to be a successful modern president [legacy creation begins]

    They missed the most important point.

    The office of the President of the United States was created with a limited set of duties and responsibilities. But over time, egotistical presidents have cumulatively usurped far more power than was ever intended for them to have. In short, they want to always be in charge, the bride at every wedding, and the corpse at every funeral. Likewise, they and their office are continually in the limelight, *at their behest*.

    This needs to end. It will end with a POTUS who realizes even before he is elected that his office is too powerful and too aggressive. He will have to work with a cooperative congress, and yet many congressmen and senators lust for that office *and* all of its powers as they are. So to reduce these powers will not be easy.

    Before he is even nominated, he must be asked the question: “Do you think the office of the president is too powerful, and if you do, how should it be limited?”

    If his response is either that the powers of the office are acceptable, or that they need to be enlarged, then he is not fit for office. Most likely, he is so self confident that he honestly believes that he can “control the power and use it wisely.”

    No, he can’t. Nobody can. The office MUST be reduced in power.

    To worry that it might become an “imperial presidency” is not irrelevant, because it *has* become that. And to thrive, this imperial presidency must end.

    Of course not. Actually he was complaining that after all that work, a patient would go on a bender, which would so scramble their brain chemistry that it would set them back months. He then went into an extended rant against alcohol.

    Importantly, this was in the 1980s, in which the number of medicines available was just a fraction of the number in use today. And some were “shotgun” solutions to “BB gun” problems, but were desperately needed. So a lot of it was experiment and guess work.

    I think they should run with this, even more, not just acting like stereotypical men, but with an open invitation to women who *like* to see men behaving in a stereotypical fashion.

    And if they want to “dress for success” with men, and compete for their attention, that is all well and good too.

    Psychiatry is really changing. Freudian psychiatry is dying out. Many psychiatrists today are quite good. I’ve known several that were top notch.

    One was a biochemical psychiatrist who would often spend six months adjusting medications for a challenging patient to help problems so rare they weren’t even mentioned in the textbooks.

    Another was an “objective” psychiatrist with Sherlock Holmes style deductive ability. He diagnosed physical diseases that Internists and even specialists would miss. Impressive to watch, he diagnosed one woman after asking what she normally ate for breakfast, which turned out to be a rare and toxic foreign dish that she just loved and ate regularly, which was killing her.

    The judge is right: the firing squad is the best way to go.

    Rifles and bullets are cheap and ubiquitous. Any LEO can pull the triggers. Appeals about the means of execution are minimal, if any. Death within a half second is almost assured.

    Using the firing squad should eliminate between 5-10 years of the appeals process, so justice is more timely.

    While in general agreement that the EPA needs reordering, as to the way to do this, I would begin by block granting most of the EPA budget to the states for Superfund clean up projects. The basic philosophy being that “reactive” clean ups are far more important than preventing “potential pollution” like carbon dioxide in the future.

    Simply put, parts of the US has been fouled, and are either currently uninhabitable or not reasonably habitable until they have been cleaned up. Or are disasters waiting to inevitably happen.

    I doubt there would be much objection to block grants for such clean ups, especially if they were far more dollar efficient than wasting money to create oppressive regulations against hypothetical future problems.

    The way around verification of age for such videos is simple. Modify the URL like so:

    That is, remove the “watch?”, and replace the equals sign after “v” with a right slash. That’s it. You will get a video that is automatically full screen.

    This usually works for “violence” videos, but if they are sexually explicit videos, it may not work. Likewise, if they are not allowed for play in the US.

    That California federal judge was absolutely right: states should immediately move to firing squads as a means of execution.

    Lethal injection is just stupid, as its purpose is not so much to execute as to make said execution aesthetically pleasant to witness.

    Electrocution and the gas chamber are also both expensive and haphazard. The guillotine and hanging are passe.

    Bullets, on the other hand, are inexpensive and ubiquitous, require no great skill or training, are very reliable, and death occurs very quickly and certainly.

    It just makes sense.

  • The KKK responds to Obama importing South American illegals

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to Oldpuppymax

    Yet another Democrat president, who by his actions, breathes new life into the KKK.

    This time, the KKK could have a lot of public support if they were able to do three things:

    1) Temporarily shut down all immigration. A ten year suspension against any more immigrants, illegal or legal. (With some waivers for those near the end of their process.)

    2) Change the law so that illegal status requires no court hearing for deportation. No legal papers, and they are on the bus. And any application for a court hearing to determine legal refugee status must be made in writing at a US embassy outside the US, not from within the US.

    3) Any unaccompanied minor children under the age of 10 will be immediately put up for adoption. Over the age of 10, their national government will be notified to either contact their parents or to take administrative control over the minor, as an orphan, when returned to them.

    4) Illegal immigrants shall be held based on nation of origin until they can be flown home, with the closest possible destination of Mexico City, at about 1,000 miles from the US border. If their home nation refuses to accept them, then they will be left in the customs area of the airport of their home nation.

  • The Immigration Surge has nothing to do with immigration

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to Sean_Anthony

    Important to all is that when a bunch of penniless and hungry illegals who do not speak English are dropped off in small towns at 3am, what in pluperfect hell do they think is going to happen?

    The answer to this is that they break into any home they can to steal food and anything else they can snatch.

    In effect, be they teenagers or adults, they are in the same position as escaped prisoners. If the homeowner is unarmed, they will either bolt, or they will assault them.

    If the homeowner is armed, they are quite likely going to die.

    And the blood of all these people is on Obama’s hands.

    I believe it was H.L. Mencken who wrote: “If man ‘A’ takes from man ‘B’ to give to man ‘C’ then man ‘A’ is a S.O.B.”

    What happens when you take a huge number of illegal aliens, without money, who do not speak English, and dump them in towns far from the border?

    What do you THINK happens, Obama, you dumbass?

    What would happen to anyone who was penniless and hungry, dropped in a strange town in a foreign country where they don’t speak the language? Do you think they are going to get help that they can’t even ask for? Do you think they will approach the police? What?

    The only practical solution to this is that they are arrested quickly, before they start breaking into homes and stealing things. Homeowners assaulted or even killed, and killing illegal aliens who have busted into their homes, every one of them have their blood on Obama’s hands.

    I don’t think that punishment would be severe enough. Her punishment should be a social one, not a criminal one, to send a message that SWATting is not just a criminal offense but so serious that it should hurt the SWATter for the rest of their life.

    As well, it shows a great need for states to crack down on spontaneous and ill prepared SWAT operations against the vast majority of people who should have never been assaulted that way.

    Hopefully, a conservative POTUS will put him in his cabinet to do an extremely difficult job: systematically auditing and disassembling federal agencies.

    This means moving from agency to agency, rooting out all the Democrats who broke the law and concocted oppressive policies against the people of the United States. While some of these agencies will be torn down to their foundation, others will be substantially downgraded, redesigned, consolidated, etc.

    Bureaucrats should tremble in fear at his very presence. And in all his jobs, he should both be able to save trillions of dollars, and pump great vitality back into the economy.

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to Clintonfatigued

    Instead of this pro-police, anti-police argument, the problem is not the police, as such, it is in the rules under which they operate, that needs significant reform.

    This begins at the state level with the passage of “police de-paramilitarization” laws. This alone will end many or even most of the problems that exist between the public and the police.

    The primary purpose of the law is to sever the direct connection between local police and the federal government, a connection that has caused a multitude of problems.

    1) States must create an official Table of Equipment for police departments. Any weapons and equipment not on the list is to be turned over to the state police, or Sheriff, if that is how the state wants to go. This also means that the federals can no longer directly fund police departments.

    2) All communications between local police departments and the federals also must go through the state police. This includes communications equipment open to federal surveillance.

    3) All SWAT operations are under the direct control of the state police. Severe restrictions should be placed on no-knock and warrantless searches. One rule already proposed in Arizona is that any evidence obtained in searches based on secret or classified information is inadmissible in state courts. Likewise, a judge must allow searches based on anonymous information.

    4) The curricular of state police academies will be rewritten to reduce confrontational behavior with the public.

    The bottom line to all of this is that police are not public masters, they are just a convenience, and all citizens of good character are expected to enforce the law.

    The purpose of the police is three fold, to compose a round the clock ‘watch’ for communities; to gather evidence of crimes having been committed; and to doggedly pursue criminal suspects.

    She should look at this as an opportunity. Get the NCIS scripwriters to come up with a plot in which she is attacked and ends up in the hospital. Use some CGI cosmetics to give her something like her usual look.

    When Edward Woodward had a heart attack during mid-season production of popular show The Equalizer, they initially wrote him out of the script by writing that he had been kidnapped. When he was still mostly bedridden, they did a rescue scene in which he was carried around on a stretcher for a short distance, to conclude the two or three parter.

    More to the point, when shooting the original Star Trek show, William Shatner was stung by a wasp on the eyelid, and they had to be very crafty, and use a ton of makeup, to hide it.

    A Cane Corso is similar to a Mastiff, often with black Labrador markings. It is a muscular dog, used both for self defense and hunting. Truthfully, seeing a 120 pound dog like that running at you, and you have a gun, you might get off a shot or two if it is attacking you. If you don’t take the shots, you could be severely injured or killed.

    Yes, I like dogs. And I like big dogs. But if you want to keep them alive, they must always be under control. As soon as you lose that control, for whatever reason, their lives can be forfeit.

    If he becomes part of the Ted Cruz bloc, he might have a long and effective time in congress. But he should steer very clear of the GOP-e, RINOs, and Chamber of Commerce; because on that path lies unemployment.

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to JRandomFreeper

    There are three kinds of plague, caused by the same bacteria. Bubonic and Septicemic plague, caused by fleas, and Pneumonic plague, caused by coughing, sneezing, and direct contamination.

    They are further distinguished because in Bubonic plague, the bacteria is transmitted from the bite to the lymphatic system. Without treatment, the bubonic plague kills about two thirds of infected humans within four days. The name Bubonic is based on the swelling of lymph nodes.

    In Septicemic plague, the bacteria instead goes into the bloodstream, causing blood clotting in capillaries throughout the body, causing tissue damage and organ failure. It is almost always fatal if untreated.

    In Pneumonic plague, the infection is in the respiratory system. Its untreated mortality rate is “very high”. In the modern world, it is the most likely to cause an epidemic, and it is almost certain that the Chinese epidemic is Pneumonic in origin.

    Even stranger, there are many Americans who are *immune* to Bubonic plague, as well as a host of other diseases, including HIV. They are descendants of people in northern Europe and England, with a cell mutation. If they have one copy of the gene, they get sick but recover, which is found in 1 in 5 Americans; and if they have two copies of the genes, they never catch the disease, which is found in 1 in 100 Americans.

However, this White-American day could not advocate despising blacks and Hispanics, especially if such speech was filled with graphic content and offensive language.

    Importantly, the “anti-government sentiment” he mentions in New Jersey, was when a member of the Bloods street gang murdered a police officer, and was in turn killed at the time by a police officer, causing the Bloods gang to call for assassinating police officers in New Jersey. Not your typical “anti-government sentiment”.

    As far as Las Vegas goes, it was the psychotic white couple who murdered two officers at lunch and several other people, dropping a Nazi flag on one and a Don’t Tread on Me flag on the other. Remember them? Total nuts. Were kicked out of the standoff at the ranch in Nevada.

    Strategically, McConnell is a nightmare for conservatism. But if replaced by a Democrat, it will be a fairly powerless freshman Democrat, whose only power will be if the Democrats get a majority.

    However, the Tea Party is so incredibly fed up with the RINOs and establishment Republicans, that they might actually leave the Democrats with a senate majority for two more years, in exchange for purging some of the worst RINOs. As long as Republicans keep the house, it will just be more of the same impasse until the Obot is gone.

    McConnell, Cochran, Graham, Alexander, and maybe one or two more might fall without conservative support. Realistically speaking, the Tea Party might take out two or three of them.

    It will also be a severe kick in the newts to the remaining Republican establishment, that they are in their last days, no matter how many multinational corporations will betray America to support them, no matter how many primaries they might cheat, they are going to be out on the street.

    And conservatives should not be in any way forgiving of them. They will either become Democrats, or get hired by some multinational for their “contacts”, but once in power, conservatives must let these corporations know that keeping them on board works against them in government contracts.

    They are lepers. Fire them. They deserve no seat at the table.

    More details: “...police believe that the two men entered the four-unit apartment building at 23 Merritt Ave., fired through the door of the first-floor apartment and entered. She said a man and his girlfriend were inside, and the pair pushed the man into a bedroom, where he kept a shotgun. The man then shot the two intruders.”

    Fired through the door implies the intruders were armed.

    While filming in Carrick, the product crew turned Merritt Avenue into “Brady Avenue” for the movie. (Which confused police.)

    N.B.: The movie they are filming is supposed to be a biographical sequel to white rapper Eminem’s movie ‘8 mile’. He was supposed to star in it, but I suspect he wisely realized that it was going to be a “Direct-To-Bargain-Bin-DVD”, so bowed out.

    With a conservative POTUS and congress, one of their critical first actions should be “An Act to Restore Federal Land Takings to the Individual States.”

    1) Exempting Indian reservations and military reservations, and a few specified “national crown jewels”, with definite boundaries, all other federal land takings, by presidential proclamation and bureaucratic regulation, congressional action, and judicial fiat, shall be returned to the individual states.

    2) Clean up of multi-state areas of environmental degradation shall be done by block grants to those states for that purpose, with no other rules than the funds must exclusively be used for that purpose, with no less than 90% used for the clean up itself, not for administrative costs or other diversions.

    3) Federal control of navigable waterways means exactly that, and the regulation of carbon dioxide, a beneficial natural gas, shall be ended as an irrational act.

    4) Land set aside for endangered species shall be species based, not geographical area based, and such species so designated can only be provided preserves if the species as a whole is endangered and there is a captive breeding for release program that effective doubles their wild numbers every 5th-10th breeding cycle. Designations of endangered shall be based solely on genetic diversity within the total population.

    The federal bias shall be for increasing the actual numbers of captive release species, not in land takings as set asides for endangered animals. Once removed from federal endangered status, the preservation will revert to the ownership of the individual state or states.

    5) States will be encouraged to redevelop and occupy rural areas in formerly federal lands, to include provision of long term supplies of fresh water, resources, transportation and communications. Such redevelopment areas will receive federal tax cessation for permanent residents for a period of ten years, if they are at least 100 miles outside a metropolitan area.

    Why choose just one?

    George Washington would be first in line to say that he was not particularly brilliant as a leader. However, he had a gift to choose brilliant people to surround himself with.

    It is deceptive to try and choose a president as a person. Instead, imagine what a “dream cabinet” of conservatives would look like.

    If we as a nation are blessed with a conservative POTUS and a conservative congress, they are also going to have to be the hardest working men and women that Washington, D.C. has seen in a century.

    Some members of the cabinet would have the sole function to *downgrade* or even close out their agency. Others will need to purge thousands of federal employees who broke the law. As well as having to revamp phone books full of nit picking and unconstitutional regulations designed to impede business and oppress the citizenry.

    Hopefully the POTUS will spend a lot of his time staying *out* of the limelight, working with congress to reduce the power of the POTUS back to more constitutional grounds.

    Then to turn the budget process into block grants for the states, the reversal of huge numbers of executive orders and other offenses, and the reorganization of the judiciary.

  • Obama: No ‘authentic’ way to be black

    Actually, to be “authentic”, black people have to dress for their economic class. And this simple idea rattles many black people down to their shoes.

    Right now, one of the biggest heartburns of the black middle class is that no one lets them ‘escape’ from association with poor blacks. After becoming financially prosperous, with a reasonably good education including graduate degrees, they are still ‘slapped down’ by being compared to and equated with poor blacks who are generally worthless and even criminal. It happens a LOT in the media.

    This would bug the heck out of anybody. “Congratulations on your Engineering degree, now back to the ‘hood with you to get your food stamps, to the soundtrack of gangster rap music.”

    Imagine a white person who had worked hard to get a good degree, only to be compared to people of low character and education who live in grungy trailers and smoked methamphetamine. “You are no different than they are.”

    So when you see a black person who is dressed middle class, who speaks good English, has a good education and wants to better themselves, realize that they likely have smoldering resentment to being patronized (often by liberals), who treat them as if they are gang bangers.

    They don’t want to be “authentically” black. They want to be “authentically” middle class.

    Biden drains soul from Putin.

    There was one photograph I saw long ago that somehow caught Biden at just the right angle to make his irises appear to be pitch black. I haven’t been able to find it again.
