    A big problem with nearly anything that human beings do centers on insufficiencies in communication. This is especially significant where politics are concerned. Consider the criminal justice system. How many of you are aware that the law dictionaries upon which lawyers and judges rely have absolutely pathetic definitions of terms such as "law" (!!!) and "crime"? Seriously guys, get your hands on copies of various law dictionaries such as Black's and Bouvier's (there are quite a few more, BTW) and look up those two terms. The definitions border on the idiotic. I have been thinking that there exists a set of terms for which scientifically rigorous definitions should exist for many reasons including but not limited to removing the ability of politicians and other agents of the Tyrant from doing what they do so successfully, which is to twist and manipulate word meanings to suit their agendas. What so you all think of the idea and would you be willing to help with it? A list of terms vital to the cause of liberty would be the first step. And if anyone has a better name for this endeavor, I'm all ears.

    I've read several accounts of nurses in various locales sending in unused swabs, every single one of them coming back as positive. While I have no way of confirming the veracity of these reports, I can also not confirm for absolutely certain that I exist. I am, therefore, given to some measure of doubt as to the actual nature of this bug. One thing of which I am confident is that we are being played like cheap fiddles.

    The problem with the article lies in his choice of terms. Attempting to force "social justice" into the libertarian mold only serves to mangle and obfuscate clear semantics and thereby clear communication. I appreciate the spirit of the passage, but in very pragmatic terms it fails, especially given the poor habits and apparently low IQ of the Meaner. IOW, I'm thinking the author is being gratuitously clever to the point many of the people who might benefit from his exposition walk away either bewildered or having grossly misunderstood the message. And I'm not sure what he means by "dwindling MAGAites". I am not convinced that Trump is losing support from his camp, but I am open to fact-based, rationally sound persuasion.

    Your quoted passage presents a semantic challenge, specifically in the use of "Lucifer". For one thing, is Luciferianism the same as "satansim"? Since that philosophy interests me not, I don't know. But if I assume they are synonyms, we then have the problem of whose definition of the term is in play. I did read LaVey's "Satanic Bible" long years ago and came to the conclusion that the silly man was simply re-branding anarchism, at least for the most part. There was nothing I can recall of the devil and that sort of rot. Of course, the work could have been a veiled presentation of some form of evil, intended for consumption by irredeemably stoopid American youngsters in seek of free shit, in this case freedom that costs them nothing. I did not, however, come away with the impression that he was peddling traditional notions of the Evil One. The passage doesn't at all sound like LaVey's voice, as I recall it. But what does the speaker mean by "doctrine of Lucifer", exactly? If it's the anarchic creed, so to speak, I have no problem with it because while I strongly subscribe to the Christian ethic, I oppose with equal force what I perceive of the evil applications and lessons of the institutions calling themselves "Christian". Notions of "sin", "original sin", and how to view and deal with basic human nature are all repugnant to me. Humans have problems enough coming up from children into adulthood without having gratuitous and undeserved guilt and shame heaped upon them, so the deprecation and abandonment of institutions who practice such barbarity seems proper to me. Evil is an interesting thing - especially when institutionalized in the sense of there being a powerful cadre working to foist it upon the world. Who can be trusted? Which avenue of belief and, perhaps more importantly, practical application is better/best? I always find myself intrigued and at the same time appalled and in some ways even afeared when I read things such as the passage you quoted. Who is the speaker? What is he truly about? Are the intentions good, v. malevolent, and if the former are they of one competent to architect such broad socio-cultural designs? Sorry to ramble, but expressions such as this intrigue me to no end precisely because they are so difficult to assess for basic value without significantly more and better information. At the end of the day, I believe that teaching children what is right is not terribly difficult. Humans complicate and distort this sort of thing almost as matters of reflex, it often seems. It is such a shame, given that doing it right is so much simpler and easier. As if life weren't difficult enough.

    Theye, having engaged in their sniffing actions to judge our "condition", assuming they deem us sufficiently softened up for the next step in humanity's devolution and diminution, one can but wonder what shall be the truly red delights to which we are to be subjected. Perhaps more war and disease to whittle down the population... i.e., the RIGHT population?

    Thus far, this latest abasement to which we have been subjected has predictably been met with nothing better than complaint. I'd find it amusing, were it not so sad. Once again I am left wondering whether there is any abuse to which we will not approve in full. With each new episode I find myself wondering less and less. But what I wonder more and more is what I would do, were I residing once again in OR or WA. I suspect I'd be in jail... At least, I hope so... not that that would do any good for anyone other than my ego, and that's not much good at all.

    Facebook is now devoid of any pretense of support for free speech. Their actions/policies betray corruption, stupidity, and so on down that list. Facebook is a publicly-traded company. Is there any way, say via class-action that they can be held to account for their corrupt and biased policies? What about their treatment of shareholders? Anyone holding shares is an owner. Can a mere employee remove an owner's ability to post? When they went public, did they not relinquish certain prerogatives WRT how they run the business? They are behaving like low-rent fascists and I would like to see them taken to the wood shed. Anyone here know what is what WRT my questions in terms of legal formality? Is there a basis for forcing them to behave in a civil and equitable manner and perhaps hitting them hard in the pocketbook? It seems to me time is ripe for putting this brand of progressive nonsense to rights. Clearly they have gone off the rails, as has Twitter. I know there is some sort of action being entertained by DoJ revolving around the question of whether these entities are "publishers" (they most certainly are), but what of other angles? I do not see how a publicly traded company can get away with this sort of thing, given the very nature of such an entity's ownership structure.

    All the while, "good" Americans stand idly by, mouths agape in horror and disgust at what they're witnessing, expecting someone else to do what they say needs doing. Until we decide we're not going quietly into that good night and that we are the solution to the trouble, the trudge to oblivion will continue.

    Cannot disagree with this. I'm thinking the Ds want Trump to win so that they can continue to wreck everything to the point that in four more years everyone is so sick of just about everything, they won't vote in a Republican for the next fifty years, giving Themme all the time they need to finish up and call the world Theire's. Yeah, Theye are FAR too wily and pragmatic to subscribe to that brand of weak-tea mentality. Obama was the convenient useful black idiot, whose utility to drive a vast chunk of Americans further into imbecility was measured and deemed right at the time. Given how well the play succeeded, I'd say they were on the money. Americans are pretty well ruined in what looks to be close to sufficient measure such that Theye will soon be able to do as they please, regardless of how many guns we may have.

    That is sort of how it feels. Well, long distance talent can make Themme accountable if they dare show their faces in public. Another thing: what we are experiencing seems to me to be a measurement action. Theye want to know just how softened up we really are. Theye concoct this Covid idiocy (though there could be other things behind it), make it verily outrageous and sit back to see what our response will be. Thus far, I estimate that we have failed miserably, to Theire endless delight and perhaps even mild astonishment at what they have accomplished. I am wondering if we have entered a new era - that of progressively turning up the heat in large increments and with increasingly outlandish fashion in the attempt to discern not even where the boundary rests, but now whether one even exists. Or are we so degraded, and I submit that most of us are, that there is no abasement to which we can be subjected that would elicit a response even hinting of the least whiff of self-respect.

    Stop watching news. It's poison. Who can say what is in Trump's mind? Nearly four years in and I still cannot make up my mind as to whether he is to be trusted. Trump's many things, but stupid is not one of them I will day, however, that Trump sucks at enlisting help. I mean, Bolton? Really? I'm not sure how he could have made the worst possible choice, short of ressurecting Mao or Stalin.

    Out of nowhere, waves of felonious behavior have swept across America and there has been very little response from "the state". Antifa riots, loots, burns properties, endanger lives, and few seem willing to stand against them. The "governments" in most of these locales appear unwilling to stop the felons, which raises the immediate question of what, precisely, is going on? How did we go from near police-state to borderline chaos in so many places, almost literally over night? What is going on here? Why would police stand down? Why are the local residents standing down? I see almost zero evidence of anyone defending against the criminal element called "antifa". It seems clear what is happening - we are being sent down a cattle chute that leads to a fork, one labeled "war", the other "capitulation". Who, and I mean what are the names, stands to profit by this? Should they not be identified to the greatest degree possible?
