  • Need New Teen Athletes Classification System

    Janitor's view ^ | July 11, 2020 | Reasonmclucus
    Teen athletes have traditionally been classified as "boys" or "girls" so that girls can participate in sports without having to compete against boys who are usually stronger and faster than girls. This system worked as long as everyone agreed on which athletes were girls and which athletes were boys. Today some disagree about who qualifies as girls and who qualifies as boys. One thing hasn't changed. There are two different genetic types of athletes. One type has two "X" chromosomes. The other has an "XY" combination of chromosomes. Athletes who have an "XY" combination of chromosomes are usually stronger and...
  • How Demonstrators Can Fight Racism

    Janitor's view ^ | Black Genocide | Reasonmclucus
    Demonstrators who want to stop racism should switch from toppling old statues to facing active threats like "black genocide". Some governments pay Planned Parenthood to kill black babies with abortions so those governments won't have to deal with as many black adults in the future. Dr. Day Gardner points out that Planned Parenthood is a worse threat to black lives than the police and the Ku Klux Klan. "The KKK brutally killed about 3,500 black people since it began in 1865, [Margaret] Sanger’s Planned Parenthood is responsible for 19 million black deaths since 1973." Demonstrators should attempt to shut down...
  • Washington Redskins Name Opponents Ashamed of Own Heritage

    Janitor's view ^ | July 7, 2020 | Reasonmclucus
    Washington Celtics could replace Washington Redskins because the Irish are proud of their heritage and many North Americans are simply ashamed of their heritage. The word "redskins" is a physically descriptive term that doesn't have inherently negative characteristics. The word is one of the English translations of the Ottawa term "Oklahoma". If we consider the characteristics of the people the term "redskins" was first applied to, it's a positive term. I'm attempting to understand why some of the descendants of the people Christopher Columbus called "Indians" say they are ashamed to be called "redskins". The only explanation I can think...

    President Donald Trump lashed out at the city of New York after the Supreme Court ruled against him, granting a Manhattan prosecutor access to Trump's financial records. Trump said “This is purely political. I win at the federal level and we won very decisively and so they send it into New York... And you know what’s going on in New York. Everyone’s leaving. It’s turned out to be a hellhole. They better do something about it because people are leaving New York, but this is a political witch hunt.”

    Those of us wise to the mainstream media’s dishonest and manipulative agenda tend to focus our ire on all the poisonous fake news they produce. But, as often as they disseminate outright lies, doing so isn’t by any means their main weapon of mass deception. By carefully choosing which facts to incessantly drum into our heads and which to keep hidden, the establishment press can turn the most flagrant deception into conventional wisdom without even resorting to any overt lies. Anyone who tuned into “Face the Nation” Sunday morning witnessed a particularly despicable example as host Margaret Brennan did her...

    “Why did Nancy Pelosi wait until Juneteenth, 2020 to demand that portraits of long dead Confederacy house speakers be removed from Cancel Culture Congressional halls?” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s big whopper that she doesn’t want President Donald Trump and his supporters COVID-19 “endangered” at tomorrow’s Tulsa rally is right up there with her earlier whopper that she always prays for the president. Pelosi accused President Trump Wednesday of embarking on an “ego trip” by scheduling a campaign rally in Tulsa, Okla., which she said could put him and others in danger of contracting coronavirus. “For the president to have this...

    Just after his sixteenth birthday in June of 1776, Private Joshua Meade, the educated son of a successful surgeon, eagerly presented himself to fulfill his civic duty with the militia of Westchester County, New York. In the not-too-distant past, before his constitution failed him, Joshua's father served in the militia as a lieutenant and some of the older men recalled him as a competent and dedicated officer. On the morning of Joshua's arrival, the regiment's 459 men were preparing to make the day-long march down the Hudson River Valley to New York City to join General Washington’s Continental Army. Joshua...

    The first half of the 20th Century was one of the most devastating in human history. The people who lived through that calamitous period are called the Greatest Generation for good reason. They came of age during the Great Depression and went on to save the world from the Nazi and Japanese tyrannies. They fought hard to save the world and later built the United States into the dominant economic and military superpower on the planet. The thing about the Greatest Generation was that their lives were tough… with a great depression sandwiched between two world wars, life was simply...

    Since the weight of an AR-15 rifle varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and model to model, it can sometimes be an undesirable element for women who shoot them. A fully accessorized AR-15 can weigh upwards of 10 or more pounds with a fully loaded, high-capacity magazine. This weight can cause the shooter to lean backwards to compensate, and in turn, makes these heavier guns un-enjoyable. If you’re physically fit and do strength training, weight has a reduced affect, but supporting a heavier rifle will eventually affect the shooter causing them to focus more on the weight and less on the...

    In 1944, the War Department Basic Field Manual FM 21-75, Infantry Scouting, Patrolling and Sniping defined the sniper as “… an expert rifleman, well qualified in scouting, whose duty is to pick off key enemy personnel who expose themselves. By eliminating enemy leaders and harassing the troops, sniping softens the enemy's resistance and weakens his morale.” That definition remains consistent through the broader history of sniping, before and since, whether the weapon was a crossbow or a high-powered, telescopically sighted rifle. The sniper is an incredibly efficient fighter, compared to the typical infantryman. Consider that in World War II, American...

    Having a reliable pistol that you're comfortable with is ideal for pocket carrying. If you're a newbie and want to start with a reliable pistol while working on your skillsets before going onto a higher caliber. Why not start with a .22 cal snub nose? Some may argue that the .22 WMR is too small for personal defense. Those that think this way are looking at it from a hunter mindset, that is one shot one kill. However, for self-defense purpose the primary objective is stop the bad guy from doing bad things. There are three ways to stop...
