    I'd thought of that... just too damned tired today to go into the details. How can a guy uncharacteristically sleep for 12 hours, arising at noon, and feel exhausted? Those pornographic dreams I damnably can never recall upon waking must have had me really working it last night. I usually sleep 3-4 hours a night and feel exhausted on waking... this bit is a new one on me. Wish I could recall those damned dreams... my life is stupid.

    Oh jeez... another story from my sordid past. Went to Bass Lake for the annual Hell's Angels blowout. Richard (friend) thought it would be amusing, so we went. They were doing all manner of stupid shit, but the one that got my attention was the woman they had hanging, inverted, from her ankles in the buck. They filled her thingy with booze, inserted straws, and were taking their turns sipping away. She had been raising something of a fuss about the whole thing until the booze began leaching into her system through the various sensitive and eminently permeable membranes of that region of the anatomy. After a while she just gave up and got into a groove of sorts. I admit she was the best looking goblet I'd ever seen. Did I drink from her, you ask? I'll never tell. Well, if you offer me enough cash, I would, but...

    I am not sure I can quite agree. I think it is a valid question pursuant to a valid consideration. Have issues such as this not been discussed endlessly over the past 30 years? At what point, in the absence of any practical improvements regarding such issues, do we admit that nothing good has come of all the talk and will likely never come of it? There are ways of proving such truths, and assuming they be proven, what then? Lay back, open your legs, say "just keep me safe" (har har har), close your eyes, and think of England? At some point people are faced with the raw choice of fighting or being consumed. If they choose consumption, so be it. But if they choose otherwise, non-equivocating material action of the murdering variety is most often the only solution for the problems at hand

    Mexico is a shit hole. Mexicans in government positions are devils worthy of nothing less than the stake. No offense to Ms. Doe, but should she not have done a little research into the nature of the place into which she was to travel? I will not go so far as to say she did this to herself, but her experience should serve as a warning to decent people not to go to MX for any reason. I've been there many times and I noticed in the late 90s the change from an atmosphere of welcoming, to one of contempt for the gringo, even in places that depend upon tourists for their daily sustenance. I've been acquainted with a large number of Mexicans, having lived in CA, AZ, OR, WA, and NJ, all of which have large populations. In my experience, and just as with the people of most other nations, the average Mexican is a complete shit. However, there are elements of savagery in Mexican culture that are rivaled by few other nations. That is simple fact. I could tell you things about Yaqui Indians that would turn your stomach, for example. Again, this is a matter of simple observation with very little need to editorialize, given that the truths observed speak for themselves. MX is a very dangerous place, particularly when the gringo (and even many good Mexicans) wanders off the beaten paths. Mexico's prima facie claims to "rule of law" are a mockery of same. This is nothing new. What IS new is that the tourist areas used to be sacrosanct. Go to Cancun, Cozumel, Playa Car, etc., mind your own business and do nothing stupid and you were basically guaranteed your safety. Not anymore, as this story so hideously underscores. Let us repeat that which everyone on the planet should now know: the world is no longer in any way a friendly place. As the world on the whole moves closer and closer in practice to the progressive ideal of paradise on earth, it becomes ever less friendly and ever more dangerous in terms of the risks people must assume when traveling. Until the day comes that all this bullshit is sorted out, it behooves people (especially Americans) to stay close to home.

    I care about profits. To say "it" is all about revenue seems perplexing as I cannot quite make out what that is supposed to mean, exactly. Total revenue is a nice thing to bump upward, but it's the ratios that count... return on assets (ROA), return on investments (ROI, often confused with ROA), and return on equity (ROE). What counts is how much my invested dollar returns to me in profit. To say profit doesn't matter is nonsensical, unless you are running a non-profit organization, in which case gross revenue would still not be the figure of central significance, but rather again a ratio that would signify the overall efficiency of the operation. Since I've not been involved with non-profits, I would not know what that ratio would be called, though it may be ROA. Anyone?

    Illusory? How do you reason? "Profit" has a very specific definition where business is concerned: Given this widely accepted working definition, how do you come to the assessment that profits are "illusory"? What do you mean? There are all manner of considerations and distinctions between "profit" and "real profit". These distinctions are central to all manner of business considerations, as well as those economic.

    Not to go too far off the plantation, but Jerry Doyle became an outspoken liberty advocate. In so doing, he pissed in the cornflakes of certain interests inimical to those of free men. He wasn't exactly old and I'd not heard of any long-standing or otherwise severe health issues. This, of course, raises some question in my mind. Anyone have better dope on his personal situation?

    The CZ75 is one of the best designs going. Period. I prefer 1911s, but that is a VERY different mindset and if you are not experienced then you do not want to be carrying one. Condition 1 is nothing to take lightly and you can basically never forget about the gun like that. The CZ is a wonderful pistol and you can get them in .45 as well... which would be my preference. Regardless, you should get some help from friends or whomever who know what they are doing. How you hold the pistol, breathing, trigger pull, drawing from holster, sight picture, and so on are all important to building good muscle memory. Exercises such as Bill Drills are important for developing the ability to hit a human-sized target center of mass with strong reliability, especially under stress. This is some serious shit - if ever you are called upon by circumstance to shoot at someone. You want to make sure you hit and neutralize the threat as quickly as possible, which is the purpose of Bill and other drills. The Bill Drill simply has you drawing from holster and dumping five rounds into the black, firing as rapidly as you are able. This is not nearly as simple and easy as it may seem. It will test your draw, trigger pull, return to target, etc., under some stress. Good luck, whatever you choose.

    In home defense, the purpose of a handgun is to fight your way to a long gun. Pistol purchase comes AFTER long gun. Also, what possesses you to want a 9mm? I would recommend a .40 or .45. They hit a LOT harder. But the rifle is the real factor because the intruder may have donned armor. What a surprise it will be for you to do a Bill drill on him only to find he didn't even flinch thanks to his trauma plates. What you want is for HIM to be surprised when you drill right through his level 4 plates with a 264 Winchester Magnum, turning everything in his body cavity into slush. Think seriously on this matter before choosing.

    I'm surprised there are any parents left in places like NJ with the sense to even notice such a thing, much less "worry" about it. That said, if they are so worried, then smack the crap out of the little darling when he mouths off to... whatever it is they are talking about. I have no idea what the device is and am about as uninterested in finding out as one could possibly be. The apparent greatness of the later baby boom generation as parent appears to manifest itself in the helicopter variety... those neurotics who are raising their children to be entitled, frightened, timid, emotionally fragile little bastards who know nothing of manners, are offended by everything, and whose parents will demand you be fired or executed if you do or say anything to upset their little darling's world of bunnies, light, and unicorn poo. My friend is a teacher at Brooklyn Tech. He just finished his 33rd year - NO idea how in hell he managed it. I left after 2 with nary a nerve remaining to me. He was "investigated" FOUR times last year. This is a really big deal because lawyers are involved, or had best be if you don't want to lose your job. He was investigated for... get this, "child abuse". What did he do? He demanded to see students' homework, no lie. The little fuckers failed to do their work and he called them on the carpet. Said fuckers go to the principal and say "I don't feel safe..." The next thing you know, you're on the business end of an official investigation that could end your career and leave you without any retirement benefit. They may be stupid bastards, but the little shits are clever as all hell, and they are 100x more vicious and treacherous than Stalin and Mao put together. They know how to work the system and they look for ANY opportunity to do so. If I were forced back into a public school, I'd be in handcuffs before the first half of the first day was through.

    My question in this is how long will it be before either NH realizes the horrible "error" it has made, or the law goes before SCOTUS on appeal to be declared "unconstitutional". A law like that carries the potential to eviscerate damned near every law on the books... a very good thing, which is why Theye would go balls to the walls to put an end to that sort of thing, if perchance it were to spread to other states. I cannot begin to imagine that Theye would not have a cow over this. Surely there will be eyes on this, waiting to amend and correct if the need arises.

    The Fords are shit IMO. The F150s between something like '97 and 2006 were complete shit with all manner of problems with rot, lousy rear diffs, bad fuel pumps and so forth. I would also note that Ford frames are complete shit. There is very little torsional stiffness in them. I have seen a demonstration of this where a Ram is driven up a pair of offset ramps. As the one rear tire comes off the ground, the bed remains perfectly level. They do the same with a Ford and the unsupported side sags a good full foot over the width of the bed. I would also warn you against Fords for this: my neighbor Paul had a really nice 250. Nice until for some reason he had to change plugs. It is not possible to do it yourself, first of all because a special tool is required (plugs are SUPPOSED to last the life of the truck, har har har har...) and the dealer charges $300 per plug LABOR. If the dealer pooches and breaks the plug, the cost rises to $400 per. Now, you have to be some kind of ÜberFoolExtraodinaire to shell out $2400 for new spark plugs. If they are supposed to last the life of the vehicle, they should be warrantied for that period, IMO. I would not have a Ford truck of a vintage ca. the past 20-25 years if they paid me to haul them away. I'm also not a Chevy fan because... well, they're Chevys. But I have to give props even when it pains me. The trucks are decent, especially for the money. But a 2500 Cummins Ram is hard to beat... and yet even those have had problems. My understanding, and I never had this problem, is that the brake rotors are soft and wear quickly. As problems go, this is minor as new rotors are only about $40, meaning one could afford to replace them every year if worse came to worst. The only really bad thing I ever heard had to do with the ca. '08 vintage Cummins. A friend's brother bought a brand new big one for $65K. A week or so into his bliss, the engine quit. Turned out Cummins had told Chrysler that their non-common-rail diesel was not ready. Chrysler said that it was, that is, if Cummins wanted to continue putting engines in Dodge trucks. The high pressure injectors were $1500 apiece and friend's brother's engine had eaten all six. Dodge told him to go scratch and that he'd have to shell out almost $10K on a two week old truck for which he'd paid $65K because he MUST have put high-sulfur fuel in it. So he drove the truck back to the dealer, tossed the perplexed salesman the keys, told him "fuck you" and walked away, leaving the dealer holding the bag, which I found agreeable. I suspect those problems were corrected.

    I had a 97. I put that truck through fracking hell and it ran like a tank. The only reason I no longer have it is because I needed two columns bolted to the rear foundation of the house because it was about to come down due to my excavations thereunder. Those columns were $1500 apiece and I had no $$ so I traded my truck for a pair. Probably should have asked for three, but the basement is complete and the point now moot. It was a 1-ton and I've hauled over twice that with no complaint. The engine is bullet-proof, as was the tranny (5 sp, manual). It was 4x4 and nothing would stop it in low as it had lockers. I miss that truck sorely. A '99 w/only 97K on it, 4x4, sounds nice. Mine had over 200K and ran like new. Personally, I would not settle for RWD, but your circumstance may allow for it better than does mine.

    Race realism is not pseudo-science. You have never once looked into the issue, aside from maybe reading some articles critiquing it, which was good enough for you. I know that and so do you. It amazes me how people like you are entirely uncritical about sources that agree with your narratives but are willing to project all kinds of nefarious things onto sources that disagree with you. Why is a "race realist" source any more biased than an egalitarian source? Especially when people like Stephen Jay Gould were caught flat-out making stuff up to suit their social constructivist narrative on race? It would be a scandal if any race realist was caught doing anything like it, but when it's one of you, it doesn't matter! Not when you're "fighting racism"!

    Sure, if you live in a white area. If you live in a "vibrantly diverse" area, the criminals don't look like me and see whites and Asians as targets. I can walk around every white neighborhood in Los Angeles with a very minimal chance of getting assaulted or killed. There certainly isn't any white neighborhood I simply categorically can't go to, but there are plenty of black neighborhoods where that's true. How is that not a fact?

    That's what you have to look at, though. If the crime rate is increasing in Chicago lets say, the fact that crime is decreasing elsewhere and therefore bringing down the national data, that doesn't tell you anything about the safety and wellbeing of the people on the South Side. Crime is committed overwhelmingly by certain demographics. That's what you have to look at. The crime rate among enclaves of whites and Asians is meaningless in that respect. I wouldn't be so sure about that. Yeah, crime rates aren't directly affected by what the President says, but Obama has legitimized BLM immensely since the whole thing started. If they get their way, crime rates will get worse. Culture is downstream from power. The President giving legitimizing or rejecting these movements is very important.

    Stating facts is not "fear mongering", nor is it "propaganda". Nothing I said in that post was incorrect. Black-on-white crime isn't uncommon, the reverse is. One gets endless media attention, the other does not. There are neighborhoods that I can't go to in LA because I'd be killed. All facts. I'm not terrified. I live in a decent place, I know how to defend myself and I'm armed. I'm enraged that there are actual no-go zones for whites in major metropolitan cities. That is unacceptable. Apparently, you think there's no point in combatting criminal degeneracy until it reaches some arbitrary standard that you deem worthy. There are multiple murders daily in certain cities in this country. Most of the victims are black. That's not worth addressing? Why the fuck not?

    Sure, I've never said that crime has been rising (though it has in the short term and we'll see if that's a minor blip or the start of a trend). Thing is, the best theory about why crime has been decreasing is proactive "broken window" policing. The very thing that BLM and the like are trying to dismantle. The only real competing theory was less unwanted kids due to abortion and that was debunked by Stephen Pinker. If BLM gets their way (and they will under Hillary), this trend will likely reverse. Regardless, it sickens me that I, a man of the West, have to avoid large swaths of the city I live in because of the criminal degenerates that live there. It's such an odd thing to realize that huge neighborhoods not that far away would mean certain death for me were I to go there. That is unacceptable, regardless of the overall crime rate. Edit: also, I see the data is for reported crime. People in black neighborhoods who report crimes are hassled and it they offer to testify are essentially walking corpses. Just something to keep in mind.

    Black-on-white crime is not uncommon in diverse cities but is almost never reported on. White-on-black crime is extremely uncommon, yet reported on incessantly on the rare occasions it does happen. There are neighborhoods in LA where I can't go because I would be gunned down upon entering. They aren't white neighborhoods. "Where you from, cuz?" You hear that in LA, you're dead. But no, nothing to worry about. Exactly what threshold has to be reached in your tiny little mind until something becomes a threat? Roving gangs going from neighborhood to neighborhood, raping and killing? What does it have to come to? Line-of-duty deaths are about the same, it's true. Cop death by gunfire is up 88% https://www.odmp.org/search/year

    They closed the thread before I was able to respond to you, so I just wanted to say, I agree with all of your concerns about Rand Paul. I still think he's better than the other options, but he isn't my ideal. I'm most likely going to vote for him, but I don't blame people who won't. And if I was still going to live in NYS in 2016 (I'm moving to Virginia for college, which as we know is a swingy state) I would be less likely to vote for him. Even still, if the LP candidate is too good to pass up (Someone more like Harry Browne than Gary Johnson... the latter of which was more of a lesser of five evils) I would consider voting for them.
