    I was looking for this, and I believe Amash made a mistake to allow this code a threat to law. The apparent miniscule ramifications of the amendment are minor enough that I am not angry it got overlooked, but appearances are deceiving, and the way law works once a code is written it is cross referenced out into everything else in new law, and when bills are written to "clean up" old laws. The bill died, a danger was averted, and I hope Congressman Amash will be more careful with the walnut inside a mustard seed trick in the future. Lord knows I am sure I let a couple get by. They are hard to spot as they fly by at mach 2.

    I think this is what people are really worried about. Now it's just an EO, but that would have made it US Code. Once it is US Code, it will propagate everywhere. This ends up with the President writing legislation, which is upside down and bass-ackwards. Thank goodness the bill died.

    A lot of people do not understand that Trump is not anti establishment, he is just an Oligarch swimming outside his lane. Some people are made to be puppets and some people are made to be puppeteers. One of the puppeteers has decided to run as a puppet. The establishment wasn't angry because they were afraid he would destroy the system, the establishment was angry because he is swimming outside his lane, which is kinda rude. This fits the pattern of such easy acceptance by some of these now, and such bitter rejection by the extreme end of the philosophical neocons, who do not always walk in lock-step with the oligarchy.

    I don't understand why this is a bad thing. The tech works, and it adds a layer of security. Who is going to have the ability to read/write 8" floppies just laying around outside the security perimeter? Sure, modernize the stuff you need to, but why not keep the "key" on an 8" floppy forever? Will make it awful hard for an outside force to steal the codes or seize control over the missiles. ETA: I'd rather keep the codes on an 8" floppy which almost nobody can read, than a USB thumb drive which basically anyone can.

    Lo Ratzach means "do no murder," with ratzach a word specifically for "unrighteous killing" as opposed to "righteous killing." The KJV translation "Thou shalt not kill" is an error of degree, possible of ignorance and possibly of intent.

    If I am talking to someone who is trying to speak English, I do not speak their language, and they appear to be having trouble, I will speak more slowly and annunciate as clearly as possible (not shout lol) and watch them to try to go at their pace. One of my pet peeves is when working with a remote in India or Bangladesh and they make no effort to annunciate at all, and then get frustrated when you do not understand what they are saying.

    It's a legit peeve, if you run into someone who is not a native English speaker the LEAST you can do is use proper grammar and avoid colloquialisms. Talking is not a "let's see if I can confuse this guy" game. It is an attempt to communicate. Why would someone sabotage their own attempts to communicate by using broken English when talking to someone who may have English as a second, third, or even fourth language? I mean, I was always a stickler for using perfect and proper English when I was younger, and it was only when I became older that I really recognized the merits of participating in a common dialect, and allowed some of my English to break down in a controlled manner. However, whenever I talk to someone who is not fluent in English, I take special care to perfect my grammar syntax vocabulary and pronunciation in the hopes of achieving the best most efficient and clear communication possible. I mean, isn't that the actual goal of like 90% of all communication? Not the goal of the content, but the fact of communicating in the first place. To be clear and well understood? Sure the intent of some communication is to conflate and confuse, but that's rare and occurs under circumstances very unlikely in an ice cream shop.

    They have done so more than once, but that is off-mission. You can't expect a huge group to unabashedly get behind off-mission activity. I think it's enough that the wide majority of the org tolerates it, given it's off mission status.

    OK's are not a militia. They are a group of active and retired military and police who promise not to obey orders that are unconstitutional. If they are truly on-mission, their time at a "crisis event" will be spent convincing the cops not to pull the trigger -- which is not generally an 'arrestable' offense. He's kind of asking why a screwdriver isn't behaving like a hammer.

    Can't stand him. He decided to hate on Ron Paul when it really counted, so even when he says 'good' things I question his sincerity. I don't believe a word he says.

    I'm not convinced. Ron Paul was all but the walking talking embodiment of the Constitution in 2008 and 2012, and Petersen HATED him. In my experience people who do that are usually all talk and no walk. They like to talk about Constitutional government but hated Ron Paul because they knew he would actually DO it.

    My mother has eaten mayo on fries for decades. Myself I am partial to ranch dip on fries.....which is actually made with mayo, but also a bunch of other stuff. As to the origin of "French Fries" Google tells me that back when they were invented in Belgium they were given a French name "Les Frites" (which makes sense, French is one of Belgium's three official languages) and the American name was invented later when American GI's in Europe for WW2 took the French name and just called them "French Fries." There is evidence that France got the idea to fry potato strips from Belgium, who was already calling them by the French name "Les Frites" around 1790-1795. The French called them "Frites" and then by 1802 Thomas Jefferson referred to deep fried potato strips as “potatoes served in the French manner” during an official Presidential dinner. The Internet seems undisputed that Belgium likely invented the things something like 1690's to 1710's and used a French name for them from early on, when France still thought potatoes gave people leprosy. The food came to France and exploded into popularity around 1790-ish, like 80 years later, and by 1802 deep fried potato strips were called “potatoes served in the French manner” during an official Presidential dinner. Nevertheless Belguim remained king of frites and America forgot about them until they discovered them again in WW2 with a bunch of Belgians feeding them "les frites." GI's being GI's were likely all "Hey, that sounds French. (narrowing eyes) Are you French? French is better than German anyways. I'm gonna call these things French Fries" and THAT time the name stuck.

    Correct. Absolutely not. Violating the Constitution illicitly is not a golden ticket to violate the Constitution freely. If his version of "realism" means pissing on the Constitution, then he doesn't really want my vote.

    I am a strict Constitutionalist. If a candidate wants my vote, then they will uphold and defend the Constitution. Johnson spent most of the 2012 pissing on the Constitution. If I am still outside of my grave, then I will not vote for this anticonstitutional ass clown.

    Absolutely not. In 2012 he called gay marriage a "Constitutional right." Regardless of what you feel about gay marriage for good or for ill, it is NOT 1) a Constitutional right, and 2) the Constitution does not empower fedgov to force the states at gunpoint to recognize it. From the perspective of a strict Constitutionalist, Johnson who seems to invent new shyt to come out of the Constitution daily, is no better than the two assholes in the majors. No thanks. McAfee may not be a Constitutionalist, but at least he does not appear to be deliberately demolishing it. If the LP wants my vote in Nov, they will nominate McAfee. If the LP does not nominate McAfee, then they do not want my vote. Simple as that. :)
