  • The U.S. Navy's New Ford-Class: The Worst Aircraft Carrier Ever

    07/10/2024 8:46:50 AM PDT · 35 of 83
    Lowell1775 to hardspunned

    Analogous turning points in naval history.....ends badly for investments in guessing wrong, or in prepping for the last war.

    The navies are always fighting the last war until someone “teaches” them different.

    Off the top of my head....you can fill in the battles where is was demonstrated....

    Oared galleys vs full sail.

    Variety of sail rigging.

    Carronades vs cannons

    Explosive shells vs solid shot.

    Sail vs steam.

    Propeller vs paddle wheel.

    Wooden vs iron hull.

    Steam turbine vs expansion plants.

    All big gun vs blended calibers.

    Battleships vs battle cruisers.

    Submarines vs, well....anything for awhile.

    Aircraft carriers vs well....anything for awhile.

    Guns and planes vs missiles.

    BUT

    Subs sneak until caught, then learn new “sneaks” until caught again

    Carriers hide in distance and ocean’s expanse.....BUT planes are out ranged by ship killing missiles and satellites see all....

    Carriers are obsolete against swarm missile armed peer rivals like China, or swarm drone and missile armed rivals like the Houthis....

    The loss of one carrier to America will rank as the worst military disaster in our history.....unrecoverable at $10 billion, 5,000 lives, and 10 years to build.

    We need to build lots of small, cheap, constantly evolving AI and remotely driven drones above, on and below the waters....THAT is the future.

    Plus some “jeep carriers” built on roll-on/roll-off hulls that can serve as assault ships as well....

    Nothing is fair in war...

    BTW....the ChiComs have an inferiority complex and copy everything we do....including our mistakes.

    But, WTH do I know and I do not feel strongly about it.

    ...felony murder rule...

    In this case where the death arose a consequence of police incompetence instead of a second perpetrator’s action....it is a travesty and repugnant to justice.

    Even in other cases, it is “guilt by association” and equally repugnant...a man is accountable before God only for his own actions, not those of others.

    But like other “enhanced” penalty and protected class laws, it feeds the vengeful mob while pandering politicians grab another 15 minutes before a microphone.

    But what do I know and I do not feel strongly about it.

    Hate crimes a a subset of thought crimes.

    Hate crimes are fabrication of the leftist neurotics and calculating Bolsheviks.

    The undermine social cohesion and are a bludgeon against traditional values.

    These are repugnant to the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.
    Resist them and demand they be rescinded.

    All men are created equal and stand equal before God and the law.....or the Republics is dead and we live in a caste based despotism with a newly minted “noble class hierarchy”.

    “There is no provision for a Federal police agency in the Constitution.”

    You are 100% correct.

    Normal police and criminal powers reside with the states.

    Armed Federal officers are nothing more than a standing mercenary army stationed among us...120,000 of them at last count.

    Other than US Marshals, Postal Police, and maybe Customs arming these thugs and thuglets is a very recent development.

    The Secret Service is not Constitutionally specified/permitted other than as customs/currency agents for Treasury/tariffs.....Lincoln used Pinkerton’s.

    Their body guard duties I guess would be extensions of the DC Federal/Capitol police authority over Federal lands and security.

    Yet more checks/balances torched for convenience and now accepted as normal.

  • Why The Left Hates It When You Point Out We’re ‘A Republic, Not A Democracy’

    06/18/2024 5:43:39 AM PDT · 68 of 88
    Lowell1775 to SeekAndFind

    A REPUBLIC vs a Democracy.

    The Constitution IS NOT the highest law in the land.

    CIVICS 101.

    No king, but King Jesus.

    That is what the Declaration of Independence says in so many words…..Declares Natural and God given rights are self-evident….no kings or priests or governments involved between you and those rights.

    God is mentioned directly four times.
    Four times!

    Order of precedent in Laws.
    1. Laws of Natures God (LONG) Revealed in Scripture
    2. Laws of Nature (LON) Observable in nature….the sciences!
    3. U.S. Declaration of Independence. Assertion of unalienable rights…..governments only by consent of governed, sole purpose is to preserve rights.
    4. U.S. Constitution. A Contract among the People to preserve their rights.
    5. Federal Law as delegated by “We the People”
    6. Statutory Law (passed by Congress) vs Administrative Law bureau rules/regs.
    7. Courts do not make, interpret or even apply law….THEY RENDER OPINIONS.

    WHAT IS THE HIGHEST LAW………NOT the Constitution…..It is Law of Nature’s God.

    Any subsidiary Law, Rule, Regulation or Opinion that conflict with the Law of Nature’s God is void and of no more effect than if it never existed. (Marbury vs Madison, 1903)

    8. State Constitutions (sovereign states)….subject to US on points of delegated authority...only to the extent all are subject to God!

    9. State law, state administrative code.


    The ONLY legitimacy of the US Constitution is the Declaration.

    The Constitution is merely a contract between “we the people” on how we will preserve our liberty.

    The Constitution makes or guarantees no rights.

    Read the Preamble of the Constitution.

    “WE THE PEOPLE in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our Posterity do hereby ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. ”

    There no question or debate on this. Either one knows it or one does not. Accept it or not, it is still there….it is literally Civics 101.

    The Declaration, well……it declares where that individual liberty comes from.

    AGAIN God is mentioned/appealed to as the sole source and justification of all our rights four times…..and encompassed in the “……laws of nature and nature’s God”.

    But wait. It gets better…..

    snip——————-
    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.—That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

    snip———————
    So, there you go…the Declaration is the foundational legal document of the United States.

    The Declaration, among many other self evident truths enumerated and not enumerated.

    The infamous penumbra (look it up) and the 9th and 10th Amendments

    The Constitution is not the highest law in the land….that is the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God as summarized and declared in the Declaration….which rights, BTW are”unalienable”.

    Thank God as in the Declaration for your rights and liberty……and for the right to keep and bear arms.

    There’s lots more, I have degrees in it......but...

    Rule is either in CONSENT to these LAWS, always subject to God and nature’s laws, or in tyranny by one, by a few, or by many in a mob.....democracy.

    No king, but King Jesus.

    I do feel strongly about it, but what do I know?

    “Which of the following is morally wrong?

    A: Hitting your wife
    B: Slavery
    C: Eating bacon
    D: Marrying a child

    For a certain unnamed ‘religion’, the accepted answer is C.”

    You forgot rape, lying, theft, drinking camel urine, and killing homosexuals with gay abandon...just off the top of my head...

    The homo killing thing may stem from their “butt in the air” exposure during prayers.

    But just my opinion and I do not feel strongly about it.

    The judge has rendered his opinion.....now let him enforce it.

    “If the government forbids us to do that which God commands, or requires us to do that which God forbids, we must obey God rather than men.”

    BUT ALSO

    Our defense of life and property laws need to be reformed nationally.

    Citizens MUST have their right recognized to use whatever force is necessary to protect their property when threatened, as well as their lives.

    Further.....self defense needs tilted 100% to the victim...drop the “mutual combat” and “reasonable force” BS...if anyone shoves, spits, kicks, hits, etc....throws ANYTHING at/on someone....EVERYTHING that follows is “on them”....UNLESS they surrender unconditionally and beg mercy.

    Laws of Nature and Nature’s God are a bitch...but required for an ordered society.

    No? Then why are bank, Brinks and museum guards armed?

    “The slur that the editor’s note referred to was “merciless Indian Savages.”

    They were.

    Many practiced cannibalism....the Ottawa as an example...war bands would saw strips of flesh off captives and made captive women share in the eating their children....babies a favorite.

    When the British were massacred outside Ft. William Henry (1757) “....the Ottawa tribesman feasted on their English captives much to the horror of the French, who were powerless to stop them.”

    Lowell1775 to Tell It Right

    Comments in passing.....

    All people should be taken “one at a time”.
    Jesus does and commands we do as well.

    It is really all about tribes rather races anyway (think about it).

    It is always a question of who did what or said what to whom before these frequently orchestrated “outrage” incidents.

    Sometimes disabled people are entitled a$$hats.
    Civilized people, walk away from such a$$hats.

    This event is an uncivilized act of animalistic dominance display.

    Why?

    The behavioral norms for Black Americans have been shown in study after study to be, by nature (even in infancy) more aggressive and quarrelsome....and then later in life Blacks as a group are more frequently:
    -aggressive.
    -violent.
    -impulsive.
    -lack appreciation for consequences.
    -perform a full std deviation (15pts) below whites in IQ.

    They clump more closely to the mean, and have fewer outliers of really brilliant or really dumb individuals.

    As asides,

    Hispanics of indigenous descent lay between whites and blacks in these same categories.

    Certain East Asian groupings (such as some intra-Chinese ethnics and all Japanese) lay 5 points or more above.

    Back to Blacks.....

    The lack of older black male role models (fathers in a stable family) has been shown to have created several generations of violent, undisciplined momma raised youth each more violent than the last.

    The last 15 years we are witnessing this in young black females now manifesting gang like behaviors such as this.

    But..we ARE NOT supposed to talk about this stuff....so this is all just my extensive science study reading & experience based meanderings...and what do I know and I certainly don’t feel strongly about.
