    (Everybody knew what happened at his funeral, and after the initial hubbub died down, his grave became a popular site for flight officers to visit.)

    “Rudel died in 1982. During Rudel’s burial ceremony, two Bundeswehr F-4 Phantoms appeared to make a low altitude flypast over his grave. Although Dornhausen was situated in the middle of a flightpath regularly flown by military aircraft, Bundeswehr officers denied deliberately flying aircraft over the funeral.

    “Four mourners were photographed giving Nazi salutes at the funeral, and were investigated under a law banning the display of Nazi symbols. The Federal Minister of Defense Manfred Wörner declared that the flight of the aircraft had been a normal training exercise.”

    That is such an incredibly dumbass thing to do, because it invokes federal and state laws against the use of “weapons of mass destruction”, in this case, a chemical weapon.

    He was what could be called a “technical pilot”, because he truly understood aircraft, as opposed to some of the deadly combat pilots, like “Pappy” Boyington and Joe Foss, who were ‘angels of death’ in their aircraft.

    Technical pilots are a rarer breed, and extraordinarily valuable. Combat pilots win battles, but technical pilots win wars. There are also tactical pilots, like John Thach, creator of the famous “Thach weave”.

    It should also be mentioned that the Germans had a combat pilot, Hans-Ulrich Rudel, who was so experienced that he became a technical pilot, many of his ideas being integrated into the Thunderbolt II “Warthog”.

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to expat_panama

    The Trump campaign quietly let slip a huge policy idea, when it suggested that Bernie Sanders’ idea of breaking up the giant banks, had merit.

    If Trump does this, it will have to be by stealth, and he will need to get all his ducks in a row, because the giant banks will do *anything* to keep from being broken up.

    It will make the breakup of AT&T look like a cakewalk.

    It will almost have to have a subsection criminalizing *any* lobbying or even political contributions from them for the length of time it takes to tear them up.

    Truthfully, it would help Trump immensely if he had filled two or even three SCOTUS seats with reliable conservatives.

    He really went far afield with that comment. *Nobody* was criticizing Leslie Jones in that movie. What they were criticizing was that her part was so embarrassingly and offensively stereotypical, especially in the trailer, that someone remarked they could have called the movie “Madea joins the Ghostbusters.”

    Imagine if the original Ghostbusters had been written so that Ernie Hudson’s part was a “Stepin Fetchit” role? It would have been *Dan Akroyd’s* writing that would have made it that way.

    So racist credit to where credit is due.

    Does he think that the writing for this movie was racist?

    Guess what.

    “Back to Africa movement”. Simply put, the US buys a 100 year lease on a large enclave in an African nation. No problem for them, as Africa is a huge continent. Then the US builds a city with all the trimmings, including water, power, free food and some retail. As well as a big fence to keep the Africans out.

    It needs to be nice enough so that black Americans who are unhappy with life in America will want to move there for free. But no American corporation (like Planned Parenthood) will be allowed to set foot there, much less set up shop, as part of the lease agreement.

    Half of the enclave will be devoted to prisoners currently in US prisons, except for the most murderous and heinous. Their sentences will be commuted on condition they take citizenship in their new country and never return to the US.

    It will be up to those who voluntarily went there, in the other half of the enclave, to determine when and if those convicts can join them in their half.

    The voluntary emigrants will have dual citizenship for 3-5 years, then they will become just citizens of their new nation.

    They will continue to get free stuff for a limited time before the US discontinues involvement with them at all.

    I think the best solution would be for a wealthy Frenchman to arrange the kidnapping of this pig before trial. Keep him on ice for a year while he is being hormonally and surgically “transitioned” from male to female.

    And the last part of his transition should involve the use of ‘gavage’, to grossly overfeed him with a stomach tube, like a goose being prepared for foie gras.

    So a year later, he is returned to Morocco as an obese woman.

    Properly the explanation would be that because of his act of violence against the innocent, Allah put a curse on him.

    Important note to Donald Trump.

    These people do not just reject you. They reject your ideas. Conservative Republican ideas. As such, if they hold any positions of power in the Republican party, their actions today should be interpreted as vocal resignations from those positions of power.

    If they do not leave voluntarily, they *must* be fired, because otherwise they will tirelessly work to undermine your political agenda, conservatism, and the Republican party itself.

    They are asps. Do not hold them to your breast.

    If they are elected officials, they no longer deserve one thin dime of party support. Instead that support should go to a primary challenger of theirs who is supportive of both conservatism and your presidency.

  • Socialism Makes People Selfish

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to Nachum

    The most important element of socialism is *vanity*, in the old, Luciferian sense. Socialists are atheists, even if they pretend otherwise. They reject the very idea of God, because they see themselves as the center of the universe.

    From this comes not only a rejection of morality, but the affirmative embrace of the Seven Deadly Sins. Not just because they feel they can, but because they see them as the *sacraments* of their atheism. To prove to themselves that they are gods, so the rules do not apply to them.

    So it is pretty easy to see why they are such miserable people.

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to Kaslin

    The biggest worry here is that the “Military-Industrial-Intelligence-Police Complex” will once again try to “improve security” by further oppressing Americans, not our enemies.

    The disaster of the Patriot Act was that while it was sold as an anti-terrorism measure, only a tiny fraction of it is actually used *against* terrorists. The vast, overwhelming majority has been used against good American citizens, taking away freedom after freedom, stripping us of our constitutional protections and privacy, and otherwise negating over 200 years of prohibitions against government intrusion and abuse.

    The Patriot Act was not alone in this. Many other authoritarian or even increasingly totalitarian abuses have been building up for decades now.

    Ironically, while there are of course strong objections to these laws just enriching the “Military-Industrial-Intelligence-Police Complex”, by far the greatest problem is that they not only *aren’t* being used enough against our foreign enemies, but they are so *inefficient* that they waste both time and resources on utterly worthless data gathering and mindless trivia.

    Not too long ago, there was outrage at the creation of a giant intelligence center in Utah. It was condemned for the stupid amounts of intrusive information it was collecting. But the obvious problem was ignored.

    It is just a data cesspit. Information goes there where it is just archived, unused. It is as valueless as numbering and micro-engraving every grain of sand on a beach. Why?

    Because we can, and it’s not *our* money. And, oh yes, “Otherwise the Terrorists Win®”, “Global Warming®”, and “It’s for the children®”.

    Endless billions of dollars thrown down a giant rat hole, while we are at war with murderous, savage primitives.

  • Why Land and Homes Actually Tend to Be Disappointing Investments

    07/18/2016 8:21:47 AM PDT · 60 of 72
    yefragetuwrabrumuy to expat_panama

    Those states with small populations and a lot of land should create their own version of a “homestead act”, but not with just inexpensive land. With something that might prove irresistible to many people.

    A 100 year guarantee of no property tax, inheritance tax, or eminent domain.

    And a clause that if the federal government tries to take their land *or* diminish its value through use restrictions, that the state must buy it back at five times its original or current value, whichever is greatest, if the landowner chooses to sell (giving the state a strong motivation to stand up to the federals.)

    This act would have severe constraints on it, however.

    It would only apply to lots of land between 1 and 5 acres, with the only residence thereon to be the owner’s single family home. And that family must dwell there six months and one day each year. No renters or sublets. No commercial ownership, in all or part, and the land cannot be used as collateral for loan agreements. Nor (as in Florida), can it be taken because of bankruptcy.

    I’m sure there are other add-ons that could be made to this deal, so those states would have people clamoring to move there.

    There have been organized attacks against police before. And typically the police remain calm, until they don’t.

    And this is the big question. At some point the police will lose patience and *retaliate* against those attacking them. And police can be very good, often lethal, about retaliating.

    This is because police gather intelligence about their enemies. They know who their enemies are, where they live, and when best to hit them.

    Even the Italian Mafia at its peak tried very hard to avoid a ‘war’ with the police, because they knew they would lose.

    Although the risk is small, tsunamis are possible on the East Coast of the United States from a variety of sources, according to new research.

    The most likely source for an East Coast tsunami would be an underwater avalanche along the continental slope.

    An offshore earthquake of magnitude 4.5 or above could cause submarine avalanches and create dangerous tsunamis with waves higher than 26 feet. Underwater canyons and bays could focus these waves and make them even bigger.

    There are plenty of areas along the continental slope — where the North American continent ends and drops into the Atlantic Ocean basin — at risk for these landslides.

    Florida is at particular risk, as it is the “flattest” state in the US.

    The Leftist Tyrant: Looking into the mirror of philosophical psychosis

    What kind of mind actually wants to control the lives of others? What is wrong with the philosophty of a man who looks at a man, or a woman, or a child and wants to force it to unthinkingly obey his will as a slave?

    Barack Hussein Obama heads a rigid, totalitarian Democrat party that represents much that is evil in America and in the world. The Democrats have played into the astonishing hatred, bitterness and entitlement of “inferiority supremacy”, marketing hatred as if it represented “liberation” and “social justice”. The United States is awash in these seven deadly sins, status symbols of Democrats to be paraded in open intimidation and used for the recreational dehumanization and mass murder of the innocent.

    After the abortion slaughter of 59,000,000 million babies since Roe v. Wade, it was estimated that there were 15.5 million abortions of black children, what approaches a genocide almost exclusively Democrat in origin and support.

    The most frequent victims of Democrats are innocent Christians, gentle people of faith who are hated because they believe in God and want to worship him in peace. This is insanity.

  • Do White Americans Want to Keep Black Americans Down?

    07/17/2016 8:32:50 AM PDT · 68 of 99
    yefragetuwrabrumuy to Kaslin

    Republicans have always wanted to, and have, helped black Americans, despite stiff opposition and hatred by Democrats.

    So it is time for Republicans to consider that race relations between blacks and *everyone else*, not just whites, but Hispanics and Asians, have “irreconcilable differences”.

    Simply put, many slave-descended American blacks are miserable in America, and have been for a very long time. So they should be given a “good” opportunity to emigrate to where they hope to live better lives.

    The last and most successful of the “black repatriation” movements in the US was in the 1920s and ‘30s, run by a man named Marcus Garvey. His intent was to found a shipping line to take black Americans back to Africa.

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

    Today, Republicans could help organize an orderly emigration for black Americans who want to return to Africa and become citizens of an African nation. But we need to create incentives to make emigration an attractive alternative.

    The project begins with the understanding that Africa is a gigantic continent. And many of the nations within are enormous in their own right, with vast unoccupied areas.

    So the US leases a giant enclave from one of these nations. A 100 year lease. The US fences the enclave, not to keep the Americans in, but to keep uninvited Africans out, at least for a time. In the enclave, the US builds a city, with its own power, water, eventually food production, and low cost stores full of consumer goods and free food and medical supplies.

    Half the enclave is for voluntary repatriations. The other half is somewhat like a minimum security prison. This is so that US prisoners, except for life and death sentence prisoners, can have their sentences commuted on condition they leave the US for good. Then it will be up to the “free citizens” in the enclave to decide when, and if, the former felons can join them.

    Those Americans who go there will have dual citizenship for say, five years, then they will become citizens of their new homeland.

    The bottom line to all of this is to present black Americans with the chance to leave a country they do not like, for a better, more prosperous life in a new country.

    It should be so attractive that they will wait in long lines for the chance to move there.

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to Kaslin

    The difference between Old Europe and the UK and America is the difference between cultural systems with their roots in Roman Law-Napoleonic Law-French Civil Code, vs. those with their roots in Common Law.

    The entire concept of government is radically different between the two. Old Europe is culturally oriented to feudalism, in which there are two classes, the nobility and the peasantry. The law is created and maintained by the nobility, and obeyed by the peasantry. There is no democracy, no liberty, no freedom that is inherent. Only that which is given by the lords and masters for as long as they like.

    While the Democrats *adore* the Old European way of doing things, most Americans (and Brits, apparently) scorn and reject it entirely.

    In Common Law, unless something is specifically *prohibited* in the law, it is legal. Make a better mousetrap.

    In Civil Law, unless something is specifically *approved* by the government, it is inherently *illegal*. You have invented a new mousetrap. Were you *licensed* to invent a new mousetrap? If you have a mousetrap inventing license, have you sought approval for your new mousetrap by the bureaucracy? And in this case, is a new mousetrap *permitted* by the EU constitution, in its section outlining the laws pertaining to mousetraps?

    If not then you have broken the law, and you cannot do anything with your mousetrap.

    In all fairness, Cruz has always been about the “ground game”, not the big, flashy Hail Mary type scores.

    His efforts to load the platform committee was specifically to insure that neither Trump nor the RINOs could either strip it of the major conservative ideas, nor introduce liberal ones. If he had been scheming for power, he would have stacked the rules committee.

    So, now what?

    I suspect that he is working very hard behind the scenes to wrest control of the party leadership from the GOP-e and RINOs.

    Again, this is not anti-Trump, but trying to insert conservatives into the leadership at the expense of the liberals.

    Remember that money and support flow from the party to the candidates for the senate and the house. If conservatives can get control of the “purse strings”, it will pretty much be the end of establishment control over the party.

    A very solemn approach is to say that these “are the violent death throes of a dying people.”

    This isn’t just something said, but demographically accurate.

    To define terms, this does *not* mean all black people in the US. Only the majority, who are slave-descended (sd), and who embrace a toxic, self-destructive, cancerous culture.

    This does not mean recent African and even some Caribbean immigrants, who are outside of this corruption and shun it. Nor does it mean those black Americans who have uplifted themselves and their families out of it.

    Who is included:

    The 72% of illegitimate children in black America. Children who are raised in single parent families, and are thus 60% more likely to engage in criminal behavior. The origins of this is a willingness to engage in sex outside of marriage.

    The enormous per capita number of abortions by black women. It has been estimated that since 1973 Black women have had about 16 million abortions.

    Those who live in areas with horrifically high black on black homicide rates.

    Those whose families have received multi-generational government welfare.

    Except for increasing numbers of African and Caribbean immigrants being admitted to the US, which distorts the statistics, sd American blacks are a dying people.

    If America allows them to continue on their path, they will cease being a problem.

    For just the opposite reason, what they did may actually be a good idea. Here’s the logic.

    In AZ, *real* guns are ubiquitous. As such, everyone must mind their P’s and Q’s and be socially polite. But guns are serious tools and not to be played with, or “horseplayed” with.

    That is, there is no longer any place for *toy* guns.

    Toy guns are for when children cannot get nor be trained with real guns. And the rules for real guns are very serious indeed. Thus, toy guns are just accidents waiting to happen.

    A great rule for children about guns. While you have been trained about guns, you cannot even guess about the training other children have had, if any. So if one of your playmates exhibits a gun, get out of there, now.

    This rule still applies into adulthood. I have seen adults who *should* know better horseplay with guns. And when I see that, I leave the area.

    So what about toy guns? In truth, they are only for restricted areas, for use by adults that understand guns. Not the general public, and not for children.

    Children need to learn about real guns. And real guns are not toys.

    He is missing a very important point.

    He sees this as a conflict between black people and the police. What he fails to see is that the armed citizenry *are* the police.

    And the armed citizenry sees this as a conflict between the criminal classes and “the people”. And you *know* who is going to lose *that* fight.

    Last year in the entire US, governments executed only 28 murderers. In the same year, armed citizens killed violent felons in the commission of a crime in the *hundreds*.

    But this is dependent on criminals attacking armed citizens, usually one or just a few attacking one or just a few. But if there is civil unrest, suddenly the numbers will skyrocket.

    And civilians are under far fewer constraints about shooting violent criminals than are the police.

    For a tight shot group, remember the simple fact that shooting is a lot like golfing, except instead of golf clubs you are using firearms. And instead of using golf balls you are using bullets. And instead of hitting balls on a golf course with other golfers, you are shooting at the golfers.

    Lots of anecdotal examples of this are cropping up elsewhere, and almost always the police are polite, professional, and calmed when notified there is a gun, while the driver keeps his hands on the wheel.

    And, a noticeable number of times, having a gun means that the police officer just gives them a warning instead of a ticket(!) I suspect the reason being that police are learning that legal gun owners are not just law abiding, but are allied with, friendly and supportive of the police.

    Though a special note, during the current unpleasantness, it is very wise to be extra controlled in your behavior during an encounter. For instance, keep your speech slow and clear, and keep it separate from your actions. That is, do not talk and move at the same time.

    When ordered to do something by the officer, tell him where it is located, then tell him you will get it for him, and finally, announce *while* you are getting it that you are getting it, giving plenty time for him to halt you.

    For example:

    “May I see your license and registration.”

    “I am carrying a licensed (or legal) gun with me.”

    “May I see your license (and/or “where is the gun now?)”

    “My license is in my wallet, in the left rear pocket of my pants.” (or perhaps) “My gun is in a holster in the glove compartment. My registration is in the glove compartment as well.”

    “Please remove your license from your wallet and give it to me.”

    “I am reaching for my wallet in the left rear pocket of my pants.”

    “Please get your registration from your glove compartment, while leaving your gun in there.”

    “I am reaching for my vehicle registration only in my glove compartment.”

    All in all, it sounds very wooden. However, it is very calming to police officers. Something very good right now.

    (Important note: during any police encounter, be very aware of any other police officers arriving on scene. While the first officer may be very relaxed, the new ones may still be very tense and nervous.)

    The early reviews are all screaming “stinker!”, for a multitude of reasons. The only upside is the hilarious Chris Pratt, who gets just enough screen time to break through the gloom, but no more.

    To start with, the movie is extremely misandric, full of hatred and bile towards men. All the men within are depicted as “a-holes” with Pratt just being “the stupid one”. Even the great monster is a male, and they destroy it by all firing their weapons at its crotch.

    The movie is also racist, turning the usually well spoken black comedienne Leslie Jones, into a gross, ignorant, stereotypical Hollywood caricature of a black woman.

    The movie also breaks with Ghostbusters canon a lot, violating many of the “rules” of the franchise.

    The trailers were terrible, the theme music just stunk on ice, the special effects were mediocre at best and unconvincing at worst. Even the poster was bad, looking like something from a horror movie.

    But the best part was that, when criticized, everyone involved, from SONY, the director, the actresses, etc., came out to *insult* the critics as misogynistic and hateful. This is not effective “damage control”.

    The budget for this nightmare is officially $154 million.

    Release date is July 15, 2016. Be sure to watch this Hindenburg crash and burn.

    Nobody has yet poured over the statistics, but there is a good chance that falling crime rates are to a great extent because ordinary citizens are culling the herd of violent criminals at an extraordinary clip.

    The FBI regularly interviews armed robbers.

    Better than two-thirds (71%) of those robbers sampled by the FBI admitted ten or more lifetime robberies. At least 30 or more robbers admitted to at least 50 armed robberies each.

    One gave a statement that he began armed robbing at 15-16 years of age, and he estimated he had committed more than 50 robberies by the time he turned 20 years old.

    Which makes it seem obvious that every time a citizen kills a career armed robber, he may be preventing dozens of crimes in the near future. This is bound to impact the statistics.

    The black leader Marcus Garvey created the most successful “Back to Africa” movement in the US. This even went so far as to propose an entire shipping line, “The Black Star Line”, to transport black Americans for repatriation to Africa.

    However, times have changed so that a modern version of this is actually feasible. How would it happen?

    First of all, the US would purchase a 100-year lease of a large unpopulated expanse of an African country. Then using state of the art city design, build a modern city with good infrastructure, including an airport capable of jumbo jets.

    Half the city would be for “parolees” in US prisons, given their liberty on condition of permanent emigration, excluding particularly nasty criminals facing life or death sentences.

    The other half would be for black Americans seeking a new start outside of repressive America.

    The up front expense of this would be several billion dollars, as well as years of subsidies for food, fuel and other resources. And it must be a desirable enough destination for black Americans to want to go there permanently. Thus they would have dual citizenship for a time before becoming citizens of their host country.

    The city itself would be surrounded by a large fence and wall, so to interact with Africans, the Americans would have to leave the city for a time.

    The Brexit leaders are a very smart bunch.

    By stepping out of the limelight, they avoid a major pitfall of organizations, of being equated with just one individual in a personality cult. This makes it much harder for their enemies to attack their ideas by undermining the person.

    Both Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson are now well situation behind the scenes to do the “heavy lifting” in negotiating the Brexit.

    If you haven’t seen the European Parliament speeches of Nigel Farage on YouTube, I can assure you they are a hoot, as he is a very talented speaker and debater, and he rhetorically slices and dices other EP members who come across as corrupt dullards.

    To say that the EU will approach these negotiations with both their customary arrogance, yet trepidation while facing Farage and maybe Johnson, should be hilarious.

    In the face of such obstinance, in this case a “determination to murder”, direct confrontation will not work, for such people are fanatics. But what will work is the indirect route, to make them “afraid to murder.”

    For instance, what if he rumor began that when Muslims went to the hospital with critical injuries, that they died because the doctors injected them with pork fat?

    That even the word “euthanasia” was “atheist code” for sending “God believers” to Hell. And any doctor who euthanizes is an atheist “soldier against Islam”.

    I hope the next POTUS eases the rules by which disgruntled Americans can leave the US, renounce their citizenship and take another countries’ if offered.

    There are so many liberals, leftists, hotheads, malcontents, mentally ill, socialists, communists, and others who often declare their intent to leave the US, that it is downright unfair that it is difficult and time consuming for them to do so.

    I’m even supportive to the idea of crowd sourcing their departure.

    The plus side, greater gun availability.

    The potential downside is from government intentionally acting unconstitutionally, using some pretense to violate the heck out of the gun owner’s civil rights.

    What comes to mind is what happened in several large cities in the US when international financial meetings were held there. The police were told unofficially to break the law in a multitude of ways, to suppress the protests and even journalistic coverage of protests.

    Their cynical calculation was that the resulting litigation would take months, yet result in only modest fines, that would in turn be paid by taxpayers. Zero punishment for those responsible. But doing so would allow the police to:

    1) Detain protesters for days without charge, then letting them go after the conference was over.

    2) Allow police to conceal their faces, names and badge numbers while acting unlawfully, to prevent individual identification and responsibility.

    3) Allow police to use excessive force against protesters and even journalists and bystanders, sometimes called a “police riot”.

    4) Seizing and destroying cameras and video evidence as well as other electronics, like cellphones. Also localized jamming of broadcast signals and WiFi.

    5) Importing LEOs from outside the region to dress in unconventional clothing like non-uniform fatigues, to act as what amounted to paramilitaries, to conduct detentions more akin to kidnappings.

    The bottom line is that these cities got away with it, even when the bad publicity forced leaders to issue empty apologies. In a few places they were forced to make cosmetic changes to rules, but even those were quietly discarded after a year or two.

    And these abuses are not far removed from the abuses inflicted on some gun dealers in past, which shows the great disdain the authorities have for the Second Amendment.
