    That remains to be seen. Never underestimate the power of the Stupid. At the moment, yes. Refer back to my previous reference to the Stupid. I put absolutely nothing beyond the Meaner. Consider that Amazon sells a book glorifying child rape. Then consider that they have not been put out of business and the members of their board of directors put to death at the hands of an angry mob. Thirty years ago, the thought that such a thing would be tolerated remained marginally in question. Today, well... here we are. But here's to you proving right and me the village idiot.

    I would see it so because it shows that Gate is panicking and enough of the world sees this to constitute a threat. Gates is like Pinky of Pinky and the Brain. No, he's not the Brain... he only thinks he is.

    I regard college sports as a very different proposition from the professional. I find it most interesting, if a mite perplexing, to note how it was the professional sports that chose to flirt so intimately with suicide and not the college varieties... at least so far as I am able to tell. Given what passes for sanity on the vast majority of college campuses today, one would think that if the diseases of left-thinking were to ooze their ways into sports, that it would have started in our most esteemed institutions of higher propaganda. That the pros decided to bend over for the Stupid prior to the colleges surprises me, and very little manages to do so these days.

    With respect to the relatively recent developments in American professional sports... It would appear that these various organizations are not yet twigging to the fact that a gross majority of Americans are now officially fed up with the nonsense of the so-called "progressives", or "regressive toddlers" as I like to call them. I find it fascinating that BASEBALL and FOOTBALL of all things would go communist-stupid. "American as baseball and apple pie" didn't become a standard expression because the teams and the overarching organization were proud communists, crapping on the nation that made their very existence possible. The same may be said for the NFL. That basketball took up such a stance is not surprising in the least, other than the rank and vast stupidity that it took to actually put "black lives matter" on their jerseys. But I suppose this is the predictable result of having been the darlings of so many millions of Americans for so many decades. They actually came to the oh-so-mistaken conclusion that they were important - that their opinions beyond their respective games actually mattered.

    I find that a likely correct take. These guys are sneaky in their use of language. They tell you exactly what they intend in ways that lead far too many people to interpret their words otherwise. Humans.

    And this leads me to wonder a mite about Trump's hand in all this. He must know what is going on - he is, after all, an MBA and from the school right across the street from where I did mine. Could be that he's simply unable to alter what is surely the bipartisan tide of borrow and spend. Were he to stop what has been done since at least the late 1930s, the house of cards would crash into a great smoldering heap. At the very least there would be a solidly unified bipartisan call for his head on a pike, replete with impeachment, trial, and defrocking. What I wonder is whether he sees a way out of this that doesn't result in fifty million or more dead Americans. Could be possible sell/manufacture our way out of the debt? It's not as far-fetched as it may sound on the surface. Contrary to popular belief, we can indeed continue to go on like this indefinitely so long as people remain able to feed, clothe, and house themselves decently.

    Actually, no. The question turns on the premise of who's right v. the wrong. The sovereignty of the individual, as well as the absolute nature of the principles of proper human relations, all of which are readily demonstrable as being objectively correct, define the right. Anything else is provably wrong. The relativism of the progressives is utter nonsense. Given this, those who not just refuse to accept objectively correct principles of such relations and who endeavor in materially effective ways to bring insurrection against those who live by those principles, forfeit their claims to life for precisely the reason that they strive to violate those very claims held with equal authority by their fellows. Exterminating such people is no different that a man who shoots and kills another who attempts to bring him harm. Equal rights, non-aggression and all that apply only where relations are properly and mutually respectful. The moment a man departs from such relations, he places himself in immediate peril of his very life. It matters no whit whether he does so seriously or in jest. It matters no whit whether he does so in words or more physically obvious and substantive actions. The moment one issues a threat against the property rights of another, he places his life in the hands of others and if he loses it, the doleful result rests with him solely. That is why proper manners and respecting interpersonal boundaries are so vitally important to free people. The casual ways in which people approach and treat one another is anathema to liberty. Sadly, that casualness is abetted and even advocated by law (at least in America). I could go on about the how's and whys, but that stands to be a long discussion. WE caused it. Remember, "government" doesn't really exist.

    This should surprise you in no way, given the events of the middle section of the twentieth century. It is a sad truth that the average human is a beast, only that is a gross and unjustifiable insult to beasts the world over. Human beings are the most dangerous creatures on this planet... and probably on many, many others as well. I can think of nothing so terrifyingly dangerous as a frenzied mob of humans. If you want to see a prime depiction of this, however fictional, watch the scene from The Sand Pebbles when Steve McQueen's little coulie helper is being chased by the raging mob, only to be caught, trussed up, and his chest laid open with a blade as the first gesture of blind, raging hatred just before the fun was to really begin, prompting Steve-0 to take up a Springfield and put a bullet through the poor caught bastard's heart for the sake of mercy. Oh, and in case you're wondering what life may be like after Nov. 3, consider that someone has authored a "guide" for the left that people of that bent may organize and disrupt and destroy, ostensibly in defense of free and fair elections. If you want to read it for yourselves, go here: Stopping the Coup: The 2020 Guide - Google Docs , part of the raft to be found at The Disruption Project These people are serious, well funded, sly as foxes, apparently eager to employ useful idiots as canon fodder, and therefore extremely dangerous. Will they act on their claims and other assertions? I've no clue, but I would never assume that they are hot air.

    Tempting to roll one's eyes at this, but this is how things went in places like Russia, China, and the many others that resulted in well over 250 million corpses at the hands of state-driven mobs gone wild, as well as its formal enforcers who were often employed to "tidy up" those mobs once their purposes had been fulfilled. All that in the course of about fifty years, which is a whole boat-load of murder. A curiously open-ended way of putting things, interpretable so broadly, so variably. What, I wonder, did he actually mean by it?

    There, I said it. From a purely normative, philosophical standpoint, secession is 100% pure, unadulterated FAIL. Before any of you recoil in horror, hear me out. This will be uncharacteristically short. America came together ostensibly to celebrate the basic freedoms of all men. To secede is to concede tyranny for some, which while perhaps a practical solution of sorts (a poor one, IMO), it is a show of moral cowardice and logical error to abandon those who would have freedom to their tormentors. "Well", some say, "those who are left in a blue state can just move away!" Sure they can, another practical solution based in the moral cowardice of those who claim to be freedom loving people. But ask yourself this: why should free men be forced into making the decision of either fleeing what is rightfully theirs and living under the Tyrant's boot heel? Why is that force morally superior to that of the Tyrant's? Why is it NOT morally reprehensible to concede the will of the Tyrant? Why is it morally and logically sensible to grant tyrants their space and latitude to be tyrants over free men? Just because we can do something, it does not follow that we ought.

    If that is in fact so, I can only assess that move as a gross miscalculation. It doesn't seem in Trump's character. Then again, politics seems to turn just about everyone to shyte.

    I suppose, but the effect was largely lost on millions of people due to the cringe-factor. Trump carried himself very poorly, to my grave disappointment. I would have stood back and given Biden all the rope he wanted. I would not have interrupted him even once. The "left" would have had to work world's harder to make him the bad guy, not that it would have changed any of the extremists' minds. But people on the fence, a non-trivial factor in the coming election, may well have been put off. Let us hope they saw through the noise, but given how dopey the average guy is these days, hope is the most I can muster, and only in very small quantities. We need to see a president worthy of the appellation and not a NYC pugilist.

    Sadly, Trump did it to himself. This is a smart man, so leading me to wonder why he did it. Is he really so weak in his ego that he could not see what he was doing? It is difficult to believe it, especially given that he really is a decent man. Is he playing another strategy? Plausible, but I don't see how it could be of real advantage. Trump made several righteous points, but being all flustered (understandable, given four years of unending shit he's received), but his delivery and apparent toss of self-control made lots of people cringe. What was needed that night was not Trump the Brawler, but Trump the Commander In Chief. All he had to do was sit quietly back and let Biden do his work for him. The only saving grace was that Biden was a bigger train wreck than Trump, but cold is that comfort. And as always, it is not so much what one says, as how he says it. Trump really dropped his balls on this one. I turned it off a mite past halfway as it was giving wifey and myself a giant headache. Another thing about the "debate" is that it wasn't. It was structured as a Q&A session - basically a live interview of each candidate. How the hell were Trump's peopleso inept as to accept that format? Are they idiots? Screw me, I cannot for the life of me fathom how it is that people so incapable of basic analysis are allowed to be in charge of a taco stand, much less a nation - ANY nation. We live the very definition of absurdity. In a proper debate format a thesis is defended by one side, attacked by the other. The sides fight it out, not with insults but logic, facts, and proper reason.
