    Interesting... It does gives us both a two way street. We can better communicate with them, and they can better communicate with us. Most human / animal communication problems come from humans, not animals. We just dont know how to listen. Or maybe we have been too distracted to bother listening to what they have to say. Ive seen nothing build up a dogs self esteem and self confidence more than the dog knowing there are those of us who DO listen and DO pay attention to both wants and needs. One pleasing thing about these eye muscles is that I know damn good and well when they are smiling.

    Make no mistake, the same Quislings and collaborators are hard at work doing the same thing here. Gotta admire the ingeniousness of it. You want the existing population gone, for whatever of a million reasons these people have...but you can't do it by armed invasion. So you convince them that having children, having normal sex and raising families is old fashioned and fuddy-duddy nonsense. You poison the minds of the women and convince them that in the womb infanticide is a civil right.

    In other words, even laid back Canucks might start to kick up a fuss as they begin to realize they are at the receiving end of a genocidal "displace and replace" pogrom, unless they are carefully manipulated and propagandized. Got it.

The exchange was caught on video by the Illinois State Rifle Association and was tied to proposed fines for keeping commonly owned semiautomatic firearms in one’s home.

    That’s something the Left has never understood, and that’s why its contempt is so heavy with hate. When it spits on the flag, or tries to piss out the eternal flame, when it hoots at the old farts loping by in their berets, or yells “Women’s Lib!” outside the church, at an old-fashioned wedding (to cite just some basic examples), it does so in such a grim, serious manner—like such “pompous assholes,” as the Left would put it, if only it could judge. The true Right is never so grim. That’s why the Left hates its guts, the way a hangman must hate the victim who laughs and jokes on his way to the gallows. The Left is a conflagration. It devours and consumes in deadly dull earnest. (Even its revels, appearances notwithstanding, are as grisly an affair as one of those puppet parades out of Peking or Nuremberg.) - Jean Raspiel "Camp of the Saints"

    No, that is not what has killed comedy: stupid writing and "woke" social justice warrior-ism are what killed comedy. The choice is either cringe worthy shit (literally) jokes or nagging "wokeness". Fuck that...comedy is funny when it is poking fun at something or someone, or telling truths that could only be expressed as comedy, not thinly disguised as "The Party Line" propaganda.

    'Late Night' and the Decline of Comedy at the Box Office: Is Netflix Really to Blame? https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/comedy-box-office-dwindles-but-is-netflix-blame-1219121 6:45 AM PDT 6/18/2019 by Stephen Galloway As the Mindy Kaling movie becomes the latest to fizzle in theaters, a confluence of forces — including the streaming service’s push into the arena and the studios’ shift to genres that reap billions worldwide — puts the future of funny films in question. Comedy lovers, not to mention fans of Emma Thompson and Mindy Kaling, took succor in early June from the promising limited opening of Late Night. The picture, which Amazon Studios acquired at Sundance for a reported $13 million, debuted the weekend of June 7 to a per-screen average of $62,414, second only this year to Marvel's Avengers: Endgame. A week later, the picture fizzled when it went wide, earning $5.1 million, or $2,314 per screen (a third of Men in Black: International's per screen take, itself a disappointment), thereby proving itself the latest in a string of comedy casualties at the box office.

    What I said stands on its on. Someone posted something positive about Amash and you criticized him for something you did not criticize Trump for in this thread. And if Amash thinks the illegal investigation turned up something impeachable then the illegal investigation can be dealt with separately. Again, if an illegal investigation found credible evidence of Trump having child porn it wouldn't matter to me that the investigation was illegal. I'd still want him impeached. This isn't a criminal matter where "fruit from a poisonous tree" isn't allowed in court. Impeachment is political. But again, I don't think Trump did anything that I would impeach him for doing.

    :rolleyes: The reason I said "moderate success" is that even though he won the senate seat (Yay Rand!) he got crushed when he ran for president. So the glass was only half full. You have just as much of an attitude as you accuse purists of having. Great success in politics is Donald Trump coming out of nowhere and winning the presidency. Even though I am no Trump fan, not even in the slightest, I know that he's been far more successful in politics than Rand Paul. So no. My assessment has nothing to do with Rand being 80% (if that's even the correct percentage) or whatever. Rand was far more successful than Ron for example.

    ^That statement doesn't address a single thing I said because I never said anything about allowing 1 foreigner in let alone millions. All I have addressed is proposed methods for curbing immigration. Who did not immigrate from an anti-liberty culture? That's not what the data shows. George H. W. Bush started tightening up on H1B visas in 1990. (See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H-1B_visa#Immigration_Act_of_1990) And that's when you start seeing the precipitous drop of support for Republicans among Asians. I know that doesn't fit your worldview but it's the truth.

    That really doesn't address a single thing I said. But okay. The reality is that there is a very real risk to the "teocon" strategy. Some of us saw this back when Rand first ran and even before. At some point we risk becoming the very neocons we were fighting to defeat in the first place. Ignoring that risk is also a delusion.

    That is an over-generalization. Let's say Ron is 99% pure. Rand isn't close to 99%. Many people who were wary of Rand nonetheless were willing to get behind him. Let's say Rand was 88%. Where is Trump? 75%? 70%? At some point the product has become so diluted that you are just down to "Well...this person is arguably better than Hillary Clinton." Okay. That was true for John McCain and Mitt Romney as well. And the "defending the impure politician" ultimately morphs into "defending the impurity itself." The mental gymnastics I have seen gone through to defend bumpfire stocks alone make my head spin. I get the "don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good" idea. I also get "Beware of wolves in sheep clothing." Both concerns are valid.

    I beg to differ. Most debates on this forum these days are either directly about immigration or indirectly tied to immigration. Take the debates over the bumpfire stock ban. Nobody here things that's a good idea. But some are willing to tolerate it based on the idea that Trump needed to do it for political reasons or, even if he's just bad on the second amendment, because he's so "good" on immigration, we need to protect him. It's like the left on healthcare. Point out Obama's shortcomings? "Oh but he got us the Affordable Care Act which is the best thing since sliced cheese and don't point out the problems with it because republicans haven't come up with anything better." But hey, if you've got another example of what you're talking about with regards to this forum, please share it. I consider this thread a reaction to the cheer-leading of the possible purge of Justin Amash. Many of us have been irritating with Rand from time to time but there wasn't the "He may lose his primary *snicker snicker*" reaction that I've seen with regards to Justin. Justin's cardinal sin? Saying obstruction of justice may be an impeachable offense. I disagree with his analysis, but I also disagree with the idea that just because the investigation came about from NSA spying that means that there can be no impeachable offense ipso facto. If illegal NSA spying turned up actual admitted child porn would that be an impeachable offense? Again, I disagree with Justin's final analysis. But I don't see it as equal to NSA spying.

    I just now saw this. My response. I hope Mini-Me and Swordsmyth will read it. This is the first (and IMO most important) point to make. Just because someone disagrees with your solution doesn't mean they don't think there is a problem worth addressing. That is the position that those pushing for government takeover of healthcare take. You don't support their ideas on healthcare? You must just want people to die! They falsely claim that you don't have any proposals of your own to put forward, or if you do they are "bad" somehow. The CEO of Whole Foods put forward a free market proposal on healthcare prior to the passage of the so called "Affordable Care Act" and for his troubles he was attacked and a boycott against Whole Foods was organized. (One of those attacking the Whole Foods CEO was Max Keiser who is often on the Alex Jones show. He called for the boycott on AJ's show and AJ didn't bust him for it. Needless to say I was sorely disappointed with Alex Jones that day.) Mini-Me makes several points that I'd like to address. My thoughts in italics. 1) American culture is in decline.

    The photos was of the day after Memorial Day on Virginia Beach. I lived in NY for many years and frequent the beaches there...and even in NY (with it's filthy subways and bus terminals) I have never witnessed any of the beaches like that at any given time. I also have been to Virginia Beach many times and never witnessed the Beach looking like that either. My theory is; we are seeing a very lazy couple of generations who live like pigs and don't really care. From what I read, the Chinese realize there was not that much money in recycling. Wow, what a revelation. Because of it, lots of states are dropping their mandatory recycling laws.

    Hello. I didn't see that post by MiniMe the first time or when antifederlist reposted it as a separate thread. I will direct my response to AF's thread. Cliff notes version, MiniMe attempts to defend something (the wall) that he readily admits won't actually fix the problem that he feels needs to be fixed (uncontrolled immigration) and that's being advanced using methods he feels are unconstitutional (abusing executive power by declaring a national emergency). Really, this whole discussion reminds me of talking to Obama voters. "Yes the Affordable Care Act caused some problems and didn't really fix anything and was possibly unconstitutional....but don't you care about sick people?" If you say yes, they say "Well...what's your alternative?" You give them alternatives they shout you down and boycott you (ask the CEO of Whole Foods) and pretend you never offered any alternatives, or worse accuse your alternatives of exacerbating the problem when the opposite is true. I put forward a proposal, half in jest, that the more I think about it is really the least worst alternative. That is helping Mexico build a wall on its southern border. There's no need to declare a "national emergency" to do that. We already send Mexico money to fight a phony drug war. We send foreign aid to all of those countries. Redirect that foreign aid to Mexico building a wall to keep Central American migrants from getting into Mexico in the first place. There is no constitutional problem with that suggestion! None. Zip. Zilch. Nada. It wouldn't cost us one red cent. (Again, re-purpose drug war foreign aid money, and since Trump has tried drug smuggling to immigration, the money has already been allocated.) No U.S. ranchers have to lose additional land. There is no need for installing "face scanning cameras" at airports and along the border wall to accomplish this. It doesn't enhance the 100 mile "constitution free zone" that already exists. And Mexico's southern border is much shorter than the U.S. southern border which means the whole shebang would be much much cheaper to construct. It seems Trump almost took me up on my suggestion when he announced, then backed away from, tariffs on Mexico to get them to do more on immigration. He was addressing the same problem my proposal address but in a different manner. He ended up without any concrete results from what I can tell. So we're back to "muh wall."
