  • Trump or Cruz: Which Revolution Will it Be?

    11/30/2015 10:18:47 AM PST · 87 of 168

    Why not both?

    By all account, Cruz is brilliant, an idea man, a legal genius, a historian, someone who knows what to do and where and when to do it. A man with a lot of plans.

    Trump, on the other hand, is a person who takes ideas, like blueprints, and turns them into reality, while at the same time selling them to the public.

    Much of what the president does is salesmanship. Huge chunks of his time are devoted to ceremonial events and cheer leading.

    This is why Trump might be the better president, because Cruz’ time is too precious to waste on ceremonies, dog and pony shows, etc. Cruz needs to be in a place where he can maximize his ideas and bring them into reality.

    This is likely not the presidency, but as a justice on the Supreme Court, replacing a liberal. Were Trump elected, then to appoint Cruz to the Supreme Court, it would be a win-win-win for both men and our nation.

    To start with, it would make Trump’s presidency much easier, as long as he guided the nation in a conservative direction. This is because by Cruz replacing a liberal, the court would be very conservative, and for many years.

    With a firm majority, the SCOTUS could finally take the bureaucracy to task, tearing down the edifices of excess and burdensome government. Using a trick of the liberals, the states could sue the federal government, Trump’s legal council would give a tepid defense, and the court would return power to the states, again and again.

    And Cruz might be in this position for 20 or 30 years.

    Heroin is not particularly fungible. That is, just because you have a large amount of heroin, it doesn’t mean its fixed market will expand to buy it. It also requires an extensive retail network to get it to users, and to get the profits back to the suppliers.

    It actually goes beyond brains or lack thereof. When I did the cap pistol exercise with a friend, we figured out that all told, the cc holder has about 3 seconds total of non-contiguous advantage over a robber who is brandishing.

    That is a ridiculous advantage in a gunfight.

    The robber doesn’t want to shoot you, he wants to rob you and leave. He expects you to dig around in your pockets. He doesn’t know you are armed. It takes time for it to register with him that your gun is not a wallet or something, and that is only if he is facing you when you draw down on him.

    And one of those things cops don’t mention very often is that about half the guns used by criminals are non-functional. Though you can’t count on that, it is still nice to know.

    Finally, overlaid over all of that is that the robber has a brain the size of an oyster.

    The truth is she proves why concealed carry is so much better in a situation like this.

    As soon as the robber brandished and said his intent, his attention has to be all over the map. He has to watch the couple, order them to do things, watch out for police or witnesses, pay attention to his confederate and direction of escape, etc.

    All she has to do is wait for the right moment, draw on him and fire, or not, at *any* time, her choice. Very focused.

    Then he made the fatal mistake of watching her boyfriend, figuring that he was the one who would act. He had no idea if one or the other or both of them were armed.

    All of this stuff adds up big time.

    I encourage people to get with a friend and a couple of cap pistols, and do mugger-victim role play, playing it straight. It’s mind boggling how much advantage cc has over the brandished gun of a robber.

    It is true that they are civilians, but they have been given both special authority and much, much more responsibility than are other citizens.

    A great example is that police are obligated to at least try and arrest those committing major violent felonies. But under generous rules, in many situations, ordinary citizens can just kill them.

    Police are burdened with paperwork, redundant supervision and review of their actions, and need protection from their superiors with a union. But that is the price demanded of them by a distrustful public.

    I think the best response to a physician asking this is to answer their question with a question:

    “Are you now or have you ever been a member of the communist party?”

    This would be done more than anything to throw a lug wrench into their thought processes. Hopefully to teach them to act like a physician, not a commissar or zampolit.

    TribLive (or perhaps John Lott) made technical errors:

    The poll made no mention of gun licenses or permits, only “policies”. Big difference.

    Other errors: While PoliceOne did ask its 450,000 members, only 15,000 responded. 28.8% said “more permissive concealed carry policies for civilians.”

    Here is the actual poll:

    An important philosophy behind both open and concealed carry needs to be promulgated to the public:

    “The public *are* the police.”

    “The uniformed police are a convenience to the public, acting as the day and night watch, collectors of evidence, and doggedly pursuing wanted suspects for the courts.”

    “That they also respond to a ‘hue and cry’ is useful, when they can. But there are inherently far too few of them, so the public must assume responsibility for its own protection. Only the public can police in all places and at all times.”

    “In a dangerous situation, the public and police must support each other. This means the armed citizen has both the ability and responsibility to do so.”

    Physiologically speaking, children’s brains are “flexible” and adaptive to both healthy, unhealthy and addictive chemicals, the younger they are, the more flexible. This declines as they get older until their brain is fully mature, anywhere from 19-25 years old.

    In practical terms this means children should not be given unhealthy or addictive chemicals before their brains are mature. This includes nicotine, caffeine, alcohol, marijuana, narcotics, ADHD drugs, tranquilizers, depressants and stimulants, and antidepressants. And this list can be enlarged to include many other substances.

    Even giving these chemicals to children for medically necessary reasons should be done guardedly, and then only if their clinical benefits strongly outweigh their drawbacks. Which pretty well knocks out the ADHD drugs except for a tiny number of children.

    Importantly, it has been discovered that when children consume addictive substances, it not only makes it easier for them to become dependent in the future, but dependent on *other* addictive drugs and behaviors as well. *And* it makes it harder for them to quit these drugs as well.

    That is, if you can become an adult without consuming addictive substances, it is much harder to get addicted, and much easier to quit.

    Restaurants have long had to deal with this and similar nonsense.

    First are the check dodgers, who use all sorts of schemes to get a free meal then get away. At their worst, they try to foist their tab on some innocent person also there.

    Related to these are the insect droppers, who put a bug in their mostly eaten food, and refuse to pay for it. Some of these threaten the restaurant with a lawsuit while making a big scene to gross out the other customers.

    Waitresses typically spot families that try to cheat an all you can eat, because only one person orders food. Funnier is when they start putting food in their pockets, because they will often try to steal runny or juice food (Mmmm, a pants pocket full of pistachio pudding!). Lower down are those that steal tableware, salt and pepper shakers, condiment and artificial creamer cups.

    Then there are the non-tippers, who just hurt the workers, and worse, the tip snatchers, who steal other people’s tips.

    Last but not least are when really filthy vagrants come in, order and pay for a cup of coffee, and nurse it for a few hours, or want endless refills.

    Importantly, the Socialist Workers Party was seeking to dominate the UAF. “UAF commendably opposes the BNP and EDL but it is silent about Islamist fascists who promote anti-Semitism, homophobia, sexism and sectarian attacks on non-extremist Muslims. It is time the UAF campaigned against the Islamist far right as well as against the EDL and BNP far right”, said some LGBT guy.

    That’s far from universal. While some people want many guns, most people are content with one or a few. Some people also collect cars, having many, certainly more than others might think they “need”.

    So what the gun industry wants to know is when will the majority of gun owners be satisfied enough to no longer want to buy another gun? An incredibly hard question to answer.

    They can, however, clap their hands with glee whenever some ignorant socialist Democrat calls for more gun control, because they know their sales are about to jump.

  • DOCUMENT LEAK: VA GOP Establishment’s "Loyalty Oath" Scheme to Suppress Insurgents Trump & Cruz

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to 2ndDivisionVet

    Supporters of Ted Cruz should thank their lucky stars for Donald Trump. It’s hard to imagine the horrific, deep pockets vitriol and hate that would have already been directed at Cruz were there not Trump working defense.

    Cruz supporters should also note that things are typically very polite and friendly between the two men, which suggests that at the very least, if Trump is elected, Cruz will be his VP. But if not VP, my next choice, which could make a Trump presidency, would be to appoint Cruz to the Supreme Court, replacing a liberal.

    Doing so would create a steadfastly conservative court for at least a decade or two. It would strongly increase the power of the states against the federal government, as they could sue, and the SCOTUS would likely find in their behalf, taking out enormous chunks of federal power.

    Trump’s presidency would be a whole lot easier, with him doing far more of what he wanted to do rather than had to do.

    And if, through the machinations of the GOP-e and Democrats, they do manage to knock Trump out of the race, they will have spent so much money and time that they will have little left to betray Cruz, who is building a formidable base, slowly and methodically, with far less harassment.

    The gun industry must be “sweating bullets”, as it were, trying to predict the demand curve for guns.

    In 1924 the automotive industry reached a saturation point where most people who wanted cars already had cars. So they innovated “model year” changes to convince car owners that they needed to upgrade to a new car.

    This strongly trickled down through industry, especially hitting the home appliance industry which had a similar problem, that its goods were too well made, so lasted so long that they were running out of customers. So they hit on the idea of including parts in their appliances with a limited life, that would break after a length of time with normal use.

    (A consumer response to this was to figure out that when products had settings, “100%” was actually greater than 100%, so would wear out the appliance much faster than if it was run at 80%, which was closer to the ‘real’ 100%.)

    In any event, what about guns?

    Planned obsolescence doesn’t work with guns, except perhaps with minor, external parts, because guns have to function with a lot of brief, very high pressure and temperature use.

    Most users will just use them a little, but some users, especially reviewers, will use them a lot, and will spot any defect quickly, which will kill of sales.

    This means that in the harsh competition of gun manufacturers, they have to be reliant on market demand. And because most guns are very reliable, what is the saturation point?

  • Late On Your Taxes? The IRS May Be Coming For Your Passport

    11/28/2015 6:09:08 AM PST · 14 of 26
    yefragetuwrabrumuy to Red in Blue PA

    It has long been common practice in the US and elsewhere, that when someone is accused of a serious crime, they must “turn in their passport” until the legal process has worked its works.

    The difference here, perhaps, is that instead of a potential criminal charge, the passport is taken away for a civil accusation, or to prevent “debt evasion” from the government.

    This does need to be watched carefully, to insure that it *never* reaches into the domain of private debt. If it does, a debt collection agency might be able to say, “Mr. John Smith owes us $3,000, so we want his passport taken away until he pays us back.”

    This is not far-fetched, because many debt collection agencies are using the courts for indirect debtors prisons. That is, they sue the debtor, but use minimal notification to the debtor of the court date, then when they do not show up, they ask the judge for a bench warrant for contempt of court, with bail set as the amount of the debt. So they are put in jail until either they or a relative coughs up the money.

    Republicans need to plan for a “State Lands Restoration Act”, that would return the vast majority of federal land takings back to the states. Granted, there are a few “national crown jewels”, that can be kept but with very tightly fixed borders, so they can’t be used to absorb nearby state or private lands.

    Along with the restoration, there needs to be very strict limits placed on the denial of use of these lands for federal prerogatives. Be it endangered species, water, pollution, whatever, the bureaucracy should no longer be able to deny the use of these lands to the individual states based on the opinions of those who don’t live there.

    Returning this vast amount of land to the individual states would be a huge defeat to both the Democrats and the United Nations. By itself, it would set back one of their major agenda items by perhaps a century.

    The bottom line to this is that the prosecutor was willing to let Polanski walk with probation, after the psych evaluation, which was pretty much the norm for the time, given scant physical evidence. But word leaked to Polanski’s attorney that the judge was going to turn down the plea and throw him into prison for a long time, “to make an example of him”.

    So Polanski probably made the right decision to bug out.

    The girl got some justice by later suing him, and collecting at least $600k, probably more like $1m. She blamed the media, reporters, the court, and the judge for causing “way more damage to [her] and [her] family than anything Roman Polanski has ever done”, and opined that the judge was using her and Polanski for the media exposure.

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to Jacob Kell

    One of the great unknowns of American prehistory is what is now the state of Kentucky. What is known is that there is a vast number of Indian weapons buried there, as if there had been a terrible and long lasting war, much like the European Hundred Years’ War, between the large and powerful northern Indian confederation, and the large and powerful southern tribes.

    That it took place in Kentucky is obvious, because east of the Mississippi, Kentucky is the major crossroads of both North-South and East-West travel. It had this strategic value even through the US Civil War.

    Because of this great war, the area of almost the entire state was a gigantic “neutral zone”. Hunting parties could enter, but long term camping was forbidden. The Europeans became aware of this neutral zone, and it was essential to western expansion.

    When the British expelled the Scots-Irish borderers, and they came to America, the east coast was already occupied, so they were told to go inland into Kentucky, both the northern and southern routes blocked by the belligerent tribes.

    The Scots-Irish borderers were a very tough people, and quickly built powerful forts in Kentucky, so by the time the northern and southern tribes discovered their presence and tried to destroy them, it was too late. But this opened the gate to western expansion.

    The northern tribes were effectively destroyed as powerful armies by the combination of the French and Indian War, and Pontiac’s Rebellion, both of which were utterly brutal, no quarters fighting.

    The southern tribes remained, and when Andrew Jackson became president, he realized that a long and nasty war with them was inevitable, so he ordered their internal deportation, “The Trail of Tears”, kicking them west, across the Mississippi. Several of his family had been murdered by them years before, so there was a strong personal element as well.

    And when Indians whine about The Trail of Tears, it should be noted that the US Army soldiers who accompanied them died of disease at about the same proportion as did the Indians.

    In business law, there is a concept called “unconscionable”, in which the situation is so inherently unfair and unjust, that a judge can set aside a “letter of the law” ruling in favor of an equitable and fair one.

    A similar concept needs to be created in our civil law.

    It would address individuals who are litigious, lawyers who engage in barratry, “litigation for the purpose of harassment or profit”, and such cases that the judge rules do not rise to the level of a civil lawsuit.

    For example, someone buys a cup of hot coffee, then spills it on their own lap. A case by the injured party against the coffee seller is frivolous, and cannot to any extent be blamed on them, so should be dismissed outright.

    In this case, a man went to a “haunted house” amusement area, whose very purpose is to cause harmless, artificial scares. He paid money, and he got what he paid for. That is it. From the very start the judge should have dismissed the case, with prejudice.

    I see the immediate response to this is to put the fear of the NRA into these senate Democrats. That is, for the NRA to quickly create a PAC whose purpose is to challenge these Democrats in the next Democrat primary, offering to support pro-gun liberty Democrats against them.

    And, if there is no pro-gun liberty Democrat willing to challenge them in the primary, then the money instead goes to a pro-gun Republican willing to challenge them.

    Importantly, this PAC is not meant to be an exclusively NRA PAC, but designed so that other gun liberty and conservative organizations can join with it as well.

    These Democrats are sniveling cowards, so whither under pressure, if applied early and consistently. And it will also send a message to other Democrats to avoid gun control as an issue, as it is a loser.

    The big question here is drug resistance.

    Right now, there is already a DR strain of gonorrhea, found almost exclusively among black men. (The incidence of homosexuality in blacks is also much higher than for other racial groups.) And if the gonorrhea is untreated during its active phase (possibly due to failure of the antibiotics used against a DR strain), it tends to quiet down for decades before re-emerging with serious damage.

    And then, of course, is syphilis. If a DR strain of it emerges, it will be bad. It can do horrible things to the body if left untreated.

    Chris Rock made a funny comedy video, targeted at black people, entitled “How Not To Get Your Ass Kicked By The Police”. It’s still on YouTube, uncensored and with lots of bad language.

    It is funny because it is grounded in the truth.

    In fact, so well grounded that police departments around the US should have been making *serious* versions of this video and distributing them freely.

    This sounds nonsensical on the surface, until you have the harsh realization that *many* people have never had these lessons, and have not figured these things out.

    Rodney King is an excellent example. Before he was attacked by the police, he and his companion did perhaps a dozen things *guaranteed* to upset, attract, and make police respond violently. He incited the heck out of them.

    And King and his companion may not have even realized they were doing so. I know it sounds implausible, but it’s the truth.

    A serious police video would be hard pressed to put all those lessons into just an hour long DVD, but it would be a great start. The best part is that they could involve local black church and community leaders in the video to give it greater credibility, as well as to teach them, since apparently a lot of them don’t know any better either.

    Not too long ago, a police department invited a local black agitator to use their gun use video course, and it really opened his eyes up to what police encounter that results in gunfire.

    The very essence of socialism, be it internationalist socialism or national socialism, is the elevation of man over God. If you were to take The Bible, old and new testaments, and remove all references to God, attributing them instead to man, you lay the foundation for all varieties of socialism, because if God is not in charge, than man is.

    Friedrich Nietzsche’s father was a Lutheran pastor, though this likely had little to do with Friedrich’s profound atheism and hatred of Christianity, as his father died when he was five. He renounced Christianity at 20.

    Based on his exposure to the writings of Darwin, among others, he eventually characterized Christianity as *evil* in that it interfered with natural selection, helping the weak to survive, when in his mind, they should perish. Thus, over time, Christianity would cause a degeneration of society. This fed into the development of the then growing science of eugenics, that humanity must be improved by culling the weak.

    As far as Hitler goes, he definitely enjoyed the illusion, the trappings of Christianity, but in ways no true believer would embrace. For example, some of his followers rewrote the Lord’s Prayer, and some Christian hymns and psalms to instead honor Hitler, and they were not discouraged from doing so. No real Christian would tolerate this.

    This is clearly a “supporting effort” of the leftist anti gun push to deny anyone on the ‘no fly’ list their constitutional rights, even though that list is a hodgepodge with no one responsible for it, and all sorts of government and even non-government bodies able to add to it.

    You might want to reconsider.

    Psychologists have found that when Americans see the flag, they feel more patriotic for up to two weeks. And these feelings of patriotism singularly help the Republican party, with zero gain for the Democrats.

    This being said, you can continue with your boycott except for say, two weeks prior to the next elections. Then there should be American flags everywhere.

    White Americans often feel guilt about African-Americans though relatively few white Americans had ancestors who were involved in the slave trade or owned slaves.

    However, Hispanic Americans do not like African-Americans because of their bad behavior.

    Asian Americans do not like African-Americans because of their bad behavior.

    Eastern European and Russian Americans do not like African-Americans because of their bad behavior.

    Arab Americans do not like African-Americans because of their bad behavior.

    And especially, Immigrant black Africans do not like African-Americans because of their bad behavior.

    I’m seeing a big problem here, and it is not caused by what white people do. And though it is racism, it seems to be founded on realism.

    A great comparison can be found in Arizona, ironically at the Gabrielle Giffords assassination attempt.

    While this was a Democrat rally, many AZ Democrats carry guns, and there were several at the rally with concealed carry. When the madman opened fire, two or three were getting ready to shoot him, but hadn’t a clear field of fire. And one of them was moving towards the madman with intent to shoot him.

    But right then, the madman needed to pause to reload, so instead of shooting him, that cc holder tackled him.

    In the French circumstance, the terrorists were likely firing on full automatic, that empties a magazine very quickly. This would give lots of time for someone with concealed carry firing a semi-automatic pistol, to put one or more aimed rounds in as many terrorists as he had bullets.

  • The Real Thanksgiving Story: A Failed Experiment in Socialism

    Brought forward to modern times, the old rules seem to apply, even ignoring the “socialism” tag, though appropriate.

    As a great example showing how the real world works, the US military had a superb pistol, the .45 ACP. However, its stocks of these pistols were worn out. Having tried to go the NATO route with 9mm pistols, that were found wanting, the pistols *had* to be of some variety of .45 ACP.

    So from on high, the Pentagon issued an offer to *every* gun maker in the US. Make a high quality .45 ACP, and in competition we will choose the best of the lot. Soon, every gun maker in the US was making at least one model of .45 ACP. Very high quality and low price were key, and the competition was fierce. Eventually making its choice among hundreds of pistols, the Pentagon got the best of the best.

    It did not hurt the rest, either, because the market was then flooded with a huge assortment of .45 ACPs, so many of them still made a lot of money. And gun buyers benefited most of all.

    Okay, this is one way of doing things. Now look at the bad way, the way of failure.

    Once in office, Obama wanted to “go solar”, or rather, to drag the nation away from proven fuels to embrace technology that didn’t exist. Fixing what was not broken.

    His method to do this was to offer huge sums of money to a relatively small number of cronies and con artists. That is, he would go to just *one* company, give them a ton of money, and tell them to *invent* something new and untried.

    Creativity doesn’t work like that. Although many of them created many things, the vast majority was crap. And though there were many people out there in business who *might* have created something good, they were neither invited to participate, nor given any money, nor offered any money if they did produce a breakthrough.

    And many of the cronies and con artists, when results were demanded, had no problem in *faking* results.

    And it cost many billions of dollars to do things this way, and produced bupkus.

    But that is the only way Obama and his cronies believe things can be done. Since they believe that the *purpose* of government is power, and to reward their friends and punish their enemies, in retrospect to the failure, they see it as having been a smashing success.

    16 bullet holes does not always equate to being shot 16 times. For example, a single bullet can go through an arm, through part of the torso, and through the other arm, to create what appear to be six bullet holes. More typically, an entrance and exit wound from the same bullet are thought at first glance to be from two bullets.

    This being said, many police departments have “if you have to shoot, empty your gun into them” policies.

    The last event I attended in which a Democrat was also allowed to attend, they were so poorly behaved that they deeply embarrassed their parents, got roaring drunk and obnoxious, and ended up both getting punched out and put in the drunk tank by the police after they exposed themselves to children.

    While thereafter they were banished from polite company, they did serve as an abject lesson(1) to the young children of what happens when people are consumed by the seven deadly sins and become Democrats.

    (1) Abject (Adjective): Pitiful, Wretched, Vile, Untouchable

    Abject is an adjective describing something or someone in a wretched condition. That condition could be poverty, weakness, helplessness, or destruction. By extension, abject can sometimes mean “contemptible, disgusting, groveling,” so one can be an “abject sinner” or give an “abject apology.” Abject spans the spectrum from pathetic (a state to be pitied) to despicable (a state to be shunned or scorned).

    Many states have some variety of rights restoration, if an ex-con appears before a judge to ask for it. Most commonly, they want to be able to have a gun. Generally, for non-violent offenders, or even some violent offenders who didn’t use a gun, judges will restore that right.

    For the simple reason that ex-cons are high on the list of those who *need* guns for self defense.

    However, in this case, the Democrat is just having sour grapes about the win of the Republican, even though the Democrat candidate was favored.

    Don’t be too quick to judge. Even the Pentagon used the film The Battle of Algiers (1966), in 2003, which shows the French when the kid gloves come off, and how they won the battles in Algeria, but lost the “hearts & minds” war.

    An interesting film, it is balanced enough to show the ruthlessness involved on both sides. Well worth a look.

    France also still has a Napoleonic era national “Examining Magistrate”, who is often called “the most powerful man in France.” Even Napoleon himself said in jest that his was just the power of an Emperor, and that if he wanted real power, he would have been the Examining Magistrate.

    The former EM was central to the French anti-terrorism effort, as he could investigate anyone, as long as he wanted, put them in prison for a very long time, and he also deported thousands of bad Muslims.

    There is no parallel at all in the US.

    Truthfully, in the 1960s, the government traumatized young people with its irrational and unfair military draft, that left many of them easy prey for a leftist media and anti-war college professors.

    Though the truth was that only a fraction of the men would be drafted, only a fraction of that number would be put into combat arms, and only a fraction of that number would be sent to Vietnam, the great majority remaining in the US or sent to Europe. And only a tiny fraction of that number that were sent to Vietnam were killed in combat, the first major war in which slightly more died of combat injuries than died of disease. Some 58,000 died, about 29,000 in combat, averaging out to about 1,500 a year over the 20 years of the war.

    An average of 800 a year died in the 5 years of Iraqi occupation, and over 10,000 a year died in the 3 years of the Korean War, to put this in perspective.

    But the screams of leftists to the young men were, “You will lose your deferment, get drafted and be sent to Vietnam to diiiiieee!” Some leftist professors went so far as to order their students to protest the war, under threat that if they didn’t, the professor would flunk them and they would lose their college deferment.

    In any event, the propaganda worked, and young Americans turned against the war, the situation not helped by the politicization and “stalemate”-attitude of those in charge.

    This is not really different from seemingly normal girls who fall under the sway of a pimp who murders them; or girls who are attracted to increasingly abusive men, who eventually murder them; or the many girls who just self destruct with bad behavior such as alcohol and drugs until they are killed.

    Eritrea has a mix of religions, with more Muslims than any other group, but controlled by Coptic Christians.

    I suspect that this was a “Muslim dating scene” deal, in which a Muslim man approaches either a Muslim or non-Muslim woman to date him, then when she refuses, he stabs her, often to death. Muslim men do not handle rejection well.
