    I don't see anything wrong there. Do you have a style preference I don't use? Every Ubuntu user I've ever known personally describes it that way, ffs. The phrase means to boot from the DVD instead of the hard drive, not "to boot from a DVD to your computer". Have you really never used or made a bootable disk/flash drive? :eek:

    @Anti Federalist especially Check it out-Not even neocon rag National Review is defending the cops on this one: http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/454504/police-murder-daniel-shaver If you have the stomach for it, I want you to watch one of the most outrageous and infuriating videos I’ve ever seen. It shows the police shooting of Daniel Shaver in Mesa, Arizona. He was crawling on his hands and knees, crying, and begging police not to shoot him. An officer shot him anyway: The background is simple. Shaver was a traveling pest control worker. He was in his hotel room (a La Quinta Inn) showing off to guests a pellet gun he used for work. Police responded to a 911 call claiming that a man was pointing a rifle out a window. When police arrived, Shaver was alone with a woman. They had been drinking. The police ordered them out of the room, and they came out, raised their hands, and got on their knees. So far, thing seem routine. Police responded to a call from a concerned bystander, they were concerned that the suspect may have a gun, so they demanded to clearly see Shaver’s hands. That’s entirely fair and appropriate. Then, however, things got strange — very strange — rather than asking Shaver and his friend to keep their hands visible while police (who, at this point, had guns pointing straight at both of them) approached and applied handcuffs, they ask them to crawl towards police in a highly-specific way. The Washington Post’s account is decent, but you have to watch the video truly grasp the strangeness of the requests: Langley tells Shaver to keep his legs crossed and push himself up into a kneeling position. As Shaver pushes himself up, his legs come uncrossed, prompting the officer to scream at him. “I’m sorry,” Shaver says, placing his hands near his waist, prompting another round of screaming. “You do that again, we’re shooting you, do you understand?” Langley yells. “Please do not shoot me,” Shaver begs, his hands up straight in the air. At the officer’s command, Shaver then crawls down the hallway, sobbing. At one point, he reaches back — possibly to pull up his shorts — and Brailsford opens fire, striking Shaver five times. In fact, the Post actually sugarcoats the encounter. At one point an officer tells him “do not put your hands down for any reason,” even saying, “If you think you’re going to fall, you better fall on your face.” Then he says, “Crawl towards me.” How he can crawl without putting his hands down, I don’t know. As the sobbing man crawls, he reaches back towards his pants (perhaps to pull them up) and is immediately shot dead. He had no weapon. He had done nothing wrong. And now he’s dead. Essentially, what the police told an innocent, law-abiding, intoxicated American was this: Follow my highly-specific, very strange instructions or die. There was no need to make him crawl. The police were in command of the situation. At no point is there a visible weapon. I have seen soldiers deal with al Qaeda terrorists with more professionalism and poise. When a man is prone, his hands are visible, and your gun is trained upon him, he is in your power. At trial, the officer testified that he though the suspect was reaching for his gun, and that if he had a chance to do things over, he’d make the same decision again. In other words, he presented the classic defense. He was afraid, so he fired. I’ve written about this before. Juries time and again acquit frightened cops, regardless of whether the cop botched the situation or whether his fear was objectively reasonable. I wrote this after the Philando Castile verdict: Legally, it’s not enough for an officer to show that he was actually afraid for his life. He has to show that “a reasonably prudent person” would also have the same fear. Clever defense lawyers twist this standard into a line of argument that goes something like this: The officer was afraid, and he can explain...

    In my experience, they can't imagine how "we" would be safe (in the broadest sense) without police supposedly "protecting" us. (even though SCOTUS has repeatedly ruled that's not actually what they're accountable for)

    I am indeed surprised! I think you'd like it. It's also not a terribly long read like other Rothbard tomes.

    Your liberty to swing your arm ends at my nose. Slander and defamation are valid torts with a longstanding history in English common law.

    The reason this method of settling disputes exists is so people don't kill each other over it instead, which historically people have done quite often.

    I gave you neg rep because the thread titles in this forum are tweeted and you just made a public spectacle with an anti-Paul diatribe, when you could have asked your question in a much more civil manner. You deserved it and you should come to terms with that.

    IIRC, it was in that thread I first saw him being an ass, and -repped him. Before I pm'ed you about this, he wrote on my profile, “Wrong. Vessol is now a known liar which is quite easy to confirm. Search on my user ID and try to locate the source for Vessol's false attribution of the phrase, "bunch of stuff", to me. Well, you'll find that Vessol is the source for the false attribution. Since you're defending a known liar, your credibility is questionable.”
    Then when I pm'ed you to ask about the issue, he wote on my profile " “Instead of inquiring with Sentient Void about Vessol's lie, all you have to do is search on my UserID. You'll find the original user of the phrase in question was Vessol who falsely attributed it to me. It's not hard. I'm assuming by your question to Sentient Void that you want rumor instead of facts... ”

    He seems rather creeeepy to me. :P

    Hey, man. I want to check with you on a rumor I just heard about RPF member Vessol. According to tpreitzel, he is a "known liar". I don't know tpreitzel or his history well, so I can't vouch for his credibility. WTF is he talking about? Any truth to this?

I haven't been here on RPF in the forums or blogging, here, for quite a while, now. As it stands, I've moved my primary blogging space to its own site, at a place I call 'A Sisyphean Revolt', where I talk about politics, economics, philosophy, culture, and entertainment. My internet 'nym can be found under 'Steve Lolyouwish' at my blog and elsewhere on the 'net (Google Plus, Reddit, Twitter, etc).

On AGW, CO2 Concentration, Venus, and the playful use of Statistical Interpretation

Ah, yes. The ole AGW 'debate' (if one could honestly call it that). I apologize in advance for sullying your computer screen with another such screed, but the AGW hype-train just keeps on keepin' on, and there are some particularly glaring nosebleed-inducing dents in said hype-train for me to stay quiet on much longer.

First, let's look at the real meat of the numbers, here.

Abortion, rights and libertarianism. How to 'solve' this understandably divisive issue?

by Sentient Void on 08-01-2013 at 05:23 PM
The issue of abortion is one that is constantly brought up and debated about at length within libertarian circles. It is often if not almost always approached as a black and white issue which in my view understandably creates tension and conclusions which cause their own problems. It's time to understand and consider a different approach to this altogether.

There is a common Rothbardian argument with respect to abortion. To the mother (the right and proper owner of her private property,

FACT: The United States actually voted for 'Nobody' in 2012

by Sentient Void on 11-20-2012 at 07:34 PM
FACT: The United States voted 'NOBODY, 2012'

In *2011* the *voting age population* of the USA was 237,657,645. It's obviously even more in 2012.

61,173,739 voted for Obama.
58,167,260 voted for Romney.

That is 119,340,999 out of a total voting age population of 237,657,645.

That means that *more than half* of the population voted for *NOBODY*. Approximately 24.4% of the voting age population voted for Romney. Approximately 25.7%
