    I'm too wary of Theire great capacity for theatrics to believe that "it" is burning down, pleasing as the thought is. Let us hope you prove wise in your assessment of reality, but I cannot quite accept that these people are so impossibly stupid that they would rather lose all than back off a smidge or two for the sake of letting tensions abate pursuant to saving the ship, so to speak.

    It's a satire magazine so they're hoping to use the rep the Onion has built-up to make the pizzagate look like a joke.

    Yes! The working poor managed to do it in the pre-industrial era, when productivity was so low many of them couldn't afford more than a handful of clothes in their lifetime. Today a $30k/yr salary barely covers necessities, thanks to the hidden tax of central banking and inflation, regulations driving costs of every product up etc. The employees and swamp creatures of the State are what Hoppe calls "the parasitic class". They are not "public servants" as they pretend to be, but members of a corrupt racketeering organization. They live off the products of private, productive labor using the tools and techniques of mafiosi and bandits and they do not consider themselves bound to the laws they deign to impose upon us.

    I want to share a discussion I had with liberals and anarcho-communists unfamiliar with markets and libertarian thought. I think the explanations I gave condense the libertarian view on many subjects to a size readable by people who won't read books. But first please know this: I'm not a defender of the status-quo. For a variety of reasons, there are many wealthy people who got that way by means of coercion and fraud (or by working for organizations that did). Property or controlling interests attained by those means are nothing else but stolen goods, and thus forfeitable (ethically at least, if not practically). That depends on the reason why an individual cannot afford the things he wants. If that person earned enough money to feed his family that year, but that was stolen from him, his rights have been violated. If the person cannot afford a heart-bypass procedure because he hasn't earned the resources needed for it, or didn't save up enough to buy a house adequate to the 7 children he chose to create, no rights violation has occured. The theory of rights in use at the time the Declaration of Independence was written was exclusively of negative rights. Negative rights means no-one has the right to take away what you naturally own. I.e. your life, your liberty and your property (the word "property" was originally included in the declaration). They were not construed as what now are being called "positive rights" meaning "other people have to gibs you their stuff". The right to life is your right to have the life you posess not be taken from you. It is not a right to coerce others to sustain your life.

    Roger that. The problem with getting informed about the serious sh*t going down is that going back to sitcoms, movies and video games is no-longer possible. I can't be 'entertained' any more - except for political memes and parrot videos...

    You people are thinkers, and you tend to assume other people think too. The cattle voters are not thinkers ; it seems unlikely to me that they will ever get enthusiastic about Rand - his stage presence just doesn't come-off as presidential. This is not a criticism of Rand. I think he is the best senator in the USA.

    Before Trump met Putin, he met with B..i first to get his marching orders. Rand supports the meeting on twitter and gets brigaded by the h.....a shills. https://twitter.com/RandPaul/status/1018951052958322688

    So now it is treason to come to a civil diplomatic arrangement for coexistence such that we don't have to get into another arms race and, in a moment of something gone horribly wrong, blow each other to Kingdom Come? How is it that we don't hunt these people, cape them out, and feed them to other people we despise as deeply in the hope of poisoning them?

    No, but his administration did fully transform American conservatism into a form of neoliberal cosmopolitanism. Definitely one of the most overrated presidents in US history.

    If stupid-posting held so much as 0.001% chance of resulting in death or maiming of the poster, the network would be a very different place. As things stand, it seems that behaving as if one had no brain of which to speak has become the new standard of grand virtue for mean humanity. Welcome to Lovecraft's New Dark Age; only, this one doesn't even rise to that tragic standard, but rather one attributable to nothing better than the eager choice of the average man to relegate himself to that which is base beyond the wildest imaginings of his forebears. Bleak are the prospects for humankind. Come to think of it, they may not even be that good.

    That is already addressed here. That is not evidence of chlorine gas nor chemical weapons. That reference is to previous investigations, NOT Douma. The consistency in blatant dishonesty by Zippy never ceases. We know chemicals weapons were previously used. Heck it is now basically admitted by even Washington that terrorists/rebels were behind the 2013 false flag chemical attack that was previously used as a pretext. Washington admits it wasn't Assad, which leaves the coalition of rebel terrorist forces.

    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.
