    If he is to be AG, what voice will he really have in an issue that is to be decided by Congress? He can jump up and down and scream until he wets himself - I see it making little difference. His role as AG will be an effective demotion in status to that of a mere instrument of implementation, rather than as partner in the architecture of statute and, occasionally, Law. What am I missing? ETA: Not to be a downer, but I hope we all realize just how screwed the so-called "liberty movement" is going to be when Ron Paul shuffles off that mortal coil. Cohesion is low as it stands. It stands to go a whole lot lower.

    Well, Bibi looked like absolute deathly hell this morning. Her humanity was almost vanished as she lay there, looking hollow. My friends Mike and Bonnie came to see her and we then went to dinner. When they dropped me off I decided to go back upstairs before heading home. To my surprise, she was awake and the most alert I'd seen her since the surgery. Of course, the nurse came and doped her up with Dilaudid. We watched the evil television for about half and hour and she was gone to la-la land. Until that time, I was rather unsure as to whether she was going to leave the hospital other than in a plastic bag. It is not an easy thing to see someone in such misery, but I am hoping tomorrow will be better. Her eldest daughter will come from NJ in the morning. She's a really good daughter. Thanks again, everyone, for all the prayers and well-wishing. This is one of those things for which Bibi has a genuine appreciation.

    Lets see how that ends up having worked out in just under one more week. This Logan Act nonsense is just that. But don't take my word for it. Let us examine the relevant text: Key terms highlighted. This is YASWS (Yet Another Shittily Written Statute). For one thing, proving intent is damned near impossible and inferring intent based upon action is fraught with risk to justice even in the best cases. The statute clearly states that the attempted influence must not only have been applied to officials of a state with which we are in "dispute or controvers", but that the interference must relate directly to said disputes or controversies. Has Trump done this? And even if he has, he is the incoming president. Standing upon some technicality such as his not yet having taken his oath would likely backfire on anyone attempting a swag at him with this stupid and poorly formulated jewel from the litter box of our illustrious and much esteemed Fifth Congress.

    Thanks everyone. I left Thomas Hospital ca. 5PM and she was conked. I kept hitting her PCA button every 10 minutes so she'd get all the pain meds possible. This was the worst day, but everyone from the doc on down said tomorrow stands to be a good bit better. I cannot wait for a week to have passed. I don't suppose it speaks well of me, but this has me worn out. I just don't know how people go through this. I couldn't. Wouldn't.

    2011 right side mastectomy for very late stage-3 cancer. Fast forward 5 years. Other side develops cysts of a very painful sort, but not cancerous. Had other side removed and the reconstruction all in one fell swoop. This was a big deal. Doc just left room... Turns out he is of a decidedly libertarian bent. Bright spot in otherwise tough day. Bibi's back to sleeping and I keep hitting her PCA every ten minutes so she keeps comfy while I am here.

    Wifey had 11 hours of surgery yesterday including massive reconstruction. I just came in to see her about an hour ago and almost started crying at what I beheld. I cannot fathom how people go through the such ordeals. She is one of the most brutally tough human beings you will ever meet and she was gasping weakly from the pain, which means we're it me, I would be praying for death. They just dosed her with three IV opiates and she is mercifully unconscious. Two IV anti-nausea drugs are helping her allergy to opiates. If you have any extra good thoughts to send her way, her name is Bibi and methinks she sure could use them right about now. I know this will pass, but seeing her in agony is just a terrible thing. I am not strong in these ways.

    Sure. And I wish my weenie would not measure in meters, but... As with the rest of the world, MX could choose a higher path, yet they do not. There are some very fine folks in MX. Only trouble is, they are outnumbered grossly by the brutes that revel in the vicious lower culture. Such is the world of men. It is amusing to observe the silliness of other nations such as Sweden and Norway who have cultivated this absurdly and transparently false presumption of higher evolution over the rest of the world, all as they live in accord with the lowest vision of human society: socialism. They seem to actually think the are fooling th thinking people of this world... or perhaps they actually believe their own bullshit or just do not care what the world thinks. The degenerate wretchedness of humanity assumes many forms. That of the Mexicans is rank in its artless crudity, but somewhat credit worthy for the lack of guile. The more "evolved" forms are the more dangerous, IMO, as the tyranny sports a prettier face. One gander at MX in general gives one reason to become queasy, whereas many might look to a place like Sweden and be tempted to go "Ooooooo.." I don't buy any of it. Different dust covers, same rotten tome.

    Worthless, futile efforts whose bases of action were rotten to begin with. In both cases people replaced on tyrant with another. Without an understanding of proper freedom, much less a love and desire for it, no good shall come of any rebellion. As you note, after the killing is done, what then? In every case I can immediately recall, the victors turned around and marched right back through Hell's gate. People will at times cry that they fight for freedom, but they don't even know what that means, so how can one expect anything but the same old same old? Those are the dominant truths. Don't believe me? Go look at the images from Rwanda's 100 day war. How about all them shitty old Jews being bulldozed into pits? One hundred million Chinese... 60-80 million soviets. How about the aftermath of Hiroshima - look at the worst of it and see what we are. That is the truth of mean humanity. And note that I have consistently referred to MEAN humanity - i.e., the AVERAGE. There are plenty of good people. Sadly, they are grotesquely outnumbered by the maniacal filth that befouls the planet. A few things. For one, it is nowhere near half. I would call 1% very optimistic. Do not conflate the absence of raging hot warfare on the streets of Anytown USA with goodness. The shit that goes on behind closed doors, were you to become acutely aware of it, would leave you ill. Let is not be naive. I've lived all over the USA and I've hung out in some of the shittiest places in America and I've watched people. I've observed them very closely over decades on the road as a consultant. After all, what in hell else is there to do when you live out of a suitcase for decades? I go hunting - people. I observed the real world of humans... Seattle, Portland, Phoenix, Orlando, Austin, Dallas, Charleston, NYC, Jersey City, East Long Branch, Chicago, Denver, and so on. Humans live wretched existences, far from the center of their natural selves, bent to the will of standards contrived by mad men whose intentions behind their architecture are utterly irrelevant to the reality their idiocies precipitated upon the entire world.

    Willing to stand and fight? You mean like the Freemen? Where is the fight? We should have slaughtered the tyrants going back to 1789 - shoot, back to 8000BC. Any man who attempts to violate another should be murdered with dispatch and without ceremony. Such men and, if need be, their children should be erased from the earth and all living human memory that nothing of their existences be remembered, save that their fate was that which all men who violate others risk. But no. Our forbears stood idly by, lying to themselves, probably out of rank cowardice or dull-witted ignorance. Whatever the case, it was more convenient for them to do nothing than to risk life and limb for the sake of crushing the evil that tainted their lives. But to be fair to them, many came from places with kings and other tyrants, so conditions here perhaps seemed idyllic. But we've had 228 years to observe the changes and our hindsight should be a powerful motivator for free men to rise and murder their antagonists. But there is mere silence. Therefore, we deserve the humiliations and degradations Theye heap upon us. As a matter of normative theory, you are correct. Things do not have to be this way. People could be better than they are on the average.

    That is not quite what I've done. I have asserted that the net result of civilization has, for me, proven a loss - a negative. There are all manner of cool things, but are they worth the price we pay? For me, they are not. For me, freedom is the only thing that matters. It matters to me more than health, family, love, etc. because without it all of the things that matter to me are diminished; tinted with the taint of evil that other men impose upon me, regardless of how innocuous it may seem in the eyes of others. I submit that those people, those civilians, are incapable of judging objectively because they have accepted the mastery of other men over them; they have sold themselves cheaply to their brethren as the lowest of whores, in exchange for mere trifles. They have sold their souls to men no better than themselves; no more suited to be master than they, and for no other reasons than that they are become timid, fearful, small beings not by any dint of the divine dice, but by their own choice. They have chosen slavery for themselves out of their avarice for the illusion of something that exists nowhere in reality, save the confines of their stunted minds and their souls, which they have shriveled by the work of their own wills against themselves. They chose the gilt cage for the sake of the ignorance for which they wantonly demand for themselves in favor of the deeper truths because they refuse the full cost of those truths which demand acceptance of the ugly alongside the beautiful. They lie to themselves out of mere and petty convenience for the sake of justifying their indolence, fed by their fears of being active and the result of their choosing to view such action as a curse, rather than as the divine blessing which is part and parcel of one's life. It reminds me of the domestic products ads from the 1960s that portrayed woman's life in the home as drudgery, thereby enticing them to by this cleanser and that kitchen appliance. Their Fear, Avarice, Ignorance, and Lassitude combine into a self-reinforcing juggernaut of personal corruption and debauchery in such a way as they come to crave the disease of spirit that cripples, consumes, and inevitably kills them, much as the heroin addict craves the fix he comes to worship as his raison d'être; his effective God. And just as with the addict, the poisons with which he bullheadedly imbues his life saps away his vigor and independence, reducing him to the most wretched habit imaginable, all the while lying to himself either about how wonderful or unavoidable his life is. He is a despicable coward and a parasite worthy of no regard or respect from anyone, which is largely why he gets none, save for that weak-tea lie that average men almost universally mistake for properly proportioned veneration of those around them. They talk a big talk about "respect" and yet fail to walk a single word of it beyond the metes and bounds of their narrowly delimited and paltry milquetoast-spirits. You mistake my tone, sir. It is no romanticization you catch, but my willingness to accept all that comes with being a savage, the bad as well as the good. You might argue that there is good with the bad in being civilized, just as there is with the savage life. To that I agree fully, and to which you might then ask "so why not choose civilization above savagery?", to which my response is "because with civilization, one's freedom wings away into the mists of eternity, never again to be seen nor felt."

    SEALs have used M-14s for a long time in preference to M16s in many cases. My little brother was billeted to SEAL7. AFAIK, though, he always used he M16... Then again, he never really says too much about what he does. I think a lot of the guys also expropriate AKs for CQC. Bigger bullets are your friend... when going in the right direction, anyhow. Sure. M14/1A/Garand has an inherently reliable locking system. It is big. It is clunky. It is WIDE OPEN. Unlike the AR, which has 8 fine lugs that key into a closed barrel extension, the M14/etc has a dual-lug system that locks into the receiver into two slots that are open on two sides. It is very difficult to muck that action up enough such that it will not run. It is easier to muck up (and clean) the AR pattern. I'd still take an AR over an AK any day.

    Depends on how you define "better". I liked Dead Kennedy's just fine. :) Besides, I was not familiar with any of the others you named. My grounds were in NYC. Consider CBGB, one of our hangouts. It was small. It was shitty. It was FILTHY. The bathroom was... well, it was the bathroom and anyone who'd ever gone there would know what I mean. The boys room was basically unisex as well. And despite all this, you could go see Blondie for $3 at the door. Some of the shitty, rough-around-the-edges clubs were the best. A girl I once saved from likely rape took me to Studio 54 a few times. Not my scene, though there was a lot of money and celebrities there.

    Bottom line in a nutshell: you are not really the owner of anything. A property owner should not have to defend his property in the ways described here. The only valid role of so-called "government" is to protect the rights of the people it ostensibly serves. I nothing of such protection here. Indeed, "government" is protecting the dishonest and criminal claims of thieves. Furthermore, if I suffer another to make some use of my land, why should it be that in time I lose title to that land? Adverse possession is an affront to the property rights of free men. Any man who walks upon that of another and makes use remains there at the grace and deign of the rightful owner. Short of an explicit agreement, I see no way that the interloper builds any ownership equity in the property in question. Imagine if I built a 20-story office tower on my neighbor's 400 acre parcel, just over our common border line. Even if today my neighbor is tolerant of my perfidious act, the only way I should ever be able to gain owner status of the property would be for the actual land owner and I to come to a very explicit agreement regarding transfer and the specific area over which it applies. But that's not how it works in places where adverse possession exists as a legal instrument. Another thing that stood out in a most revoltingly revealing manner was this:

    Since "government" does not exist in sé, it has no rights. To suggest otherwise is akin to saying that '3' has rights, or referring to those of a vacuum; They are fully senseless statements. This is a prime example of the power of words. Words form your thoughts. Thoughts form you reality. Therefore, words form your reality. All that needs to be done is to repeat specific words or statements in an incorrect manner such that they alter the thoughts in a desired direction, which in turn alters the reality. Theye know this very well and make use of it daily. The news outlets, for instance, will concoct some new and wholly incorrect usage of, say, a given word. They will repeat this malevolent usage over and over and in time the mental landscape shifts and before you know it, the perceptual reality of people has been altered. Reversing these falsehoods has proven virtually impossible. For one thing, people just don't care, if even they can be lead to accept that they have been lead around by their noses. Their frail, fearful, and dishonest egos refuse to accept the suggestion that they've been taken for a really big ride. At some point in our history, the false reference to "government's rights" (or "states' rights") was taken up and after a while the notion became normalized in the mind of the average American such that he now accepts this utter, bald-faced lie as truth. That is just how we as a species are wired. Tyrants know how this works and they take advantage of it to devastating effect.

    Ain't the schools' fault. It's ours for letting those things exist in the first place. Sure, but how do you expect that to happen when the parents are nothing better than textbook examples of arrested development - children themselves? I hate being such a broken record, but nothing is going to change for the better without some monumental reason for doing so. One's children turning effectively brainless, *****, and disinterested in ever becoming independent adults is apparently insufficient a concern to get parents to do something. That's where my "reset event" comes in; something so all-consumingly disruptive of life that people are presented with the immediate choice to adapt or die. If the average man knew how deep in the kimchee his life was, his mind would implode.
