    On which part? The Trump worship or the right wing identity politics? We have both. Not the majority mind you, but a vocal minority.

    :rolleyes: Did you consider patriots flying their flags upside down when Obama was president publicly insulting American? Because I didn't. America is not a flag nor is it a song. America is its people. And it's not acceptable for American people, black or white, to be getting killed by police officers who are able to get off just by claiming they were "afraid" even if they had not just reason for their fear. Further the large scale NFL protests are because Donald Trump is a complete moron. Colin Kaepernick was already fired and Trump was demanding that he be fired. How anybody on this forum can stand with such a complete jackass, who is now showing his gun grabbing colors, is beyond me. Once police state USA starts affecting you directly, I'm sure patriotic 'Merikuns will appreciate you saluting the flag as you are hauled off to a FEMA camp.

    Thanks! So that clarifies it. We are already beyond the government banning weapons that are typical infantry issue. And to answer jllundqu, the case he was wondering about was the Heller case which upheld a ban on sawed off shotguns specifically because they are not what is a typical soldier uses.

    1) I didn't say they were "special targets" for extrajudicial killing. I said, and I quoted RON PAUL, that blacks are arrested and prosecuted for drugs at a much higher rate than they actually use drugs. Those are facts. Deal with them. 2) Black on black crime, while a problem, is on the decline as in crime in general. So is black teen pregnancy rates. 3) You have bigger things to worry about than bump stocks but that doesn't mean assaults on the second amendment should be ignored.

    You should care because banning bump stocks will not stop someone from going full auto and full auto is scary to the gun grabbers. Eventually the push will be to ban anything that can be made full auto.

    LOL. You can't read except for copying and pasting articles that agree with you. Every new territory the confederacy was to acquire had to, by the confederate constitution, allow slavery. If a state "barred" slavery, it would have to allow slave owners to "sojourn" with their slaves. Put your brain in gear. I know you have one. In the 21st century we can't keep up with who is or is not "sojourning" in our nation. There was no way with 19th century technology to be able to keep track of who had permanently moved in with his slaves and who was just "sojourning."

    :rolleyes: Wrong. Speaking for myself I was educated in private schools K-12 and my high school history teacher was a southern apologist and a blooming idiot. I'm not calling him an idiot because he was a southern apologist. When we would get our tests back I would have a C...until we went through the answers and I showed him from the book over and over again where he was wrong and I would have an A. And no it wasn't a "liberal textbook." He just didn't have a basic grasp of historical facts. And here is the fact of what we're talking about. You can couch it in "states rights" and "property rights" all you want to but at the end of the day the "property right" being argued about was human beings. Ask yourself this question. Why did the slave owning states demand a fugitive slave clause in the constitution in the first place? Seriously? I know the answer, but I wonder if you do. I doubt it.

    That was the essence of the article posted. How dare NFL players take a knee over police brutality because....blacks are killing blacks. Of course the real reason the protests spread from 5 to few hundred is because Trump is a moron and decided to attack the NFL for not firing Colin Kaepernick....when the NFL had already fired Colin Kaepernick.

    https://thelibertarianrepublic.com/ron-paul-support-black-lives-matter/ I support the black lives matter movement. I have long advocated an end to the drug war, police militarization, and other threats to liberty that disproportionately victimize African-Americans. However, I wish some of the black lives matter movement’s passion and energy was directed to ending abortion. Unborn black lives also matter. Note that later Ron Paul went on to criticize the Black Lives Matter organization for its socialist agenda. But he was early on board with the idea that there is an alarming increase in police brutality and African Americans are disproportionately affected. I will now return this forum to its regularly scheduled Trump worship and right wing identity politics.

    So you are okay with police brutality because....black on black crime. :rolleyes: Only the killings of puppies matter on RPF I suppose. Here is a stat the Walter Williams apparently is ignorant of. Violent crime in general, and that includes black on black crime, has been steadily declining for decades while shooting by police of unarmed civilians is going up. Do you have an explanation for that?

    Except this isn't the result of an "organized group." Colin Kaepernick decided to protest police brutality. He didn't where a "Black Lives Matter" t-shirt or do a press conference about social justice or anything like that. Most of the players who are not protesting were not protesting at all until Donald Trump made an asshole of himself. Seriously, if you are going to be mad at anyone over this, be mad at Trump. At the start of the season there were 5, count, 5 players protesting. Kaepernick had in effect been fired. (His contract was not renewed). Trump made the protest spread league wide by his stupid comments. And the fact is blacks are disproportionately killed by cops! Don't by the Stefan Molyneaux bvllshyt. Ron Paul laid it all out in 2008. A good proxy for the just us system is the GWOD (global war on drugs). Blacks and whites are equally likely to use drugs, but blacks are far more likely to be arrested. Of those arrested blacks are disproportionately convicted. Of those convicted, blacks have longer prison sentences. If this is a lie, Ron Paul told it. But it's not a lie. It's the facts. Blacks being disproportionately arrested equals more police encounters. More police encounters equals more chances for some unarmed person to get shot. It's not that cops are walking around looking to shoot blacks. But disproportionate enforcement of stupid laws and militarization of police are leading to predictable results.

    https://www.mail.com/news/politics/5563368-white-house-nra-congress-agree-regulating-bump-sto.html#.7518-stage-hero1-1 I told ya so. Actually Donald Trump told ya so but most of y'all didn't listen. In his book "The America We Deserve" he wrote: "I generally oppose gun control, but I support the ban on assault weapons and I support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun." Now, let's see. I bet some Trumskiites will say "But a bump fire ban isn't the same as an assault weapons ban." And I would say.....you're right. But what do you think will happen when the next mass shooter uses the "rubber band bump fire" trick? See: http://www.mynameisfoxtrot.com/journal/2014/5/7/diy-bumpfire-1022-stock.html

    :rolleyes: When has music not been part of politics? The National Anthem? The Battle Hymn of the Republic? I wish I were in Dixie? And I don't recall you complaining about Aimee Allen's "Ron Paul" song. Come on. This "celebrities shouldn't be involved in politics" argument is just plain crap. Nobody is complaining that WWF superstar "Kane" (Glenn Jacobs) is running for mayor of Knoxville Tennessee as a libertarian. (If you complain then you should do a cage match with Cain.) Republicans complain about liberal celebrities getting involved in politics, then heap praise on Ted Nugent for standing up for gun rights and Hank Williams Jr. for trashing Obama. If you don't like someone's politics you don't like that person's politics. But there's absolutely nothing wrong with using the platform you have to push what you believe whatever that happens to be. To the extent that Tom Petty was antiwar I supported his politics the same way I support the politics of the Dixie Chicks. It's funny that I keep hearing idiot teocons say "The ended their career" when the truth is that the still sell out even the larger venues in Nashville, which is the country music capital of the world. (They sold out the Bridgstone Arena which is where the Predators play. Then people bought tickets to watch the re-broadcast at theaters.) http://www.tennessean.com/story/entertainment/2017/07/05/dixie-chicks-bring-sold-out-concert-nashville-theaters/453197001/

    Or rather the vocal fans? I don't think all of the "protestors" supporting Obamacare at republican town hall meetings proves anything either. Whoever is feeling the most butthurt at any given moment is the side who "protests." I already know people who were planning on boycotting the NFL prior to Trump's statements but doing it in support of Kaepernick. As far as I know, Kaepernick hasn't been picked up. So.....who's protesting what?

    You realize that the athletes who are protesting are doing it because they feel solidarity with people who are not privileged? Kaepernick basically got fired after protesting. A small handful (like 5?) NFL players protested with him. Donald Trump decided to be the dumbass that he is and turned a marginalized fired player into a worldwide cause. The "privileged class" decided to take a knee for the underprivileged class. The only thing wrong with the "black lives matter" movement is that it's not just black people getting shot for no reason by police. It's white people. It's puppies. It could be you or your child next. Seriously. You call in a suspected rape? You walk up to the police car to give your report? The militarized police officer freaks out because he hears a bank? And you could be shot. And the police officer could get off because he claimed he was "afraid." That's some crap. That should not exist in a country that claims to be the "land of the free and the home of the brave." It should not be tolerated among a group of people who claim to "protect and serve." And whatever it takes for this to be seen as unacceptable should happen.

    Ummmm.....Colin Kaepernick did get fired. And then Trump made a total jackass of himself and called out the entire NFL and made Colin Kaepernick an overnight hero. Now I don't know your profession. But if all of the best in your profession across an entire industry said "Fvck it. We're not budging".....well I doubt they'd all get fired. Imagine the helluva team an NFL owner would have if the rest of the league fired all of the players standing (well...kneeling) with Kaepernick and one owner broke ranks and said "Screw the flag! Come play for us!" Now this is what pisses me off. While Obama was president, "patriots" were flying the flag upside down in protest. So....what's the difference? Oh...I know...I know...the flag upside down is a "sign of distress." Well...this country is in distress. And police shootings of unarmed people (and puppies) is a major cause of distress. And yes blacks are disproportionately being shot despite the lies Stefan Molyneux is spewing on the subject. That's because blacks are disproportionately stopped by police. Ron Paul had it right. Blacks use drugs at the same rate as whites but are far more likely to get arrested, convicted and spend longer in prison. So it stands to reason that blacks would be getting shot more. It's a tragedy when some white person, like the Aussie woman, gets shot too. Whites should go to "black lives matter" protests, hold up her picture and say "Her life matters too." Oh but no. The white reaction is "Blue lives matter." Ummmm.....okay. I never saw a blue person in my life (well, except for the blue man group) but okay.

    Yes because instituting a draft and excepting people involved in the very institution the war was defending constitutes a high degree of morality. :rolleyes: I suppose next time we go to war in the Middle East there should be a draft but the children of oil executives should be exempted. And Dred Scott itself was a violation of states rights. Should this country ever do the right thing and end the drug war but allow individual states to ban drugs, someone shouldn't be able to say "I know drugs are illegal in Tennessee but I'm just bringing my stash on vacation" and then pretend that's "states rights."

The War of the Dandelions

I wrote this up this morning. Enjoy. Spread if you like it.

The War of the Dandelions

In one neighborhood of small town America, a father of five was terribly distraught at the dandelions overtaking his yard. He sent his children out to pick them all, paying them a small allowance. He was so proud of his yard, that he decided he should send his children out to neighboring yards on a daily basis to help his neighbors with their own
