    I'm too wary of Theire great capacity for theatrics to believe that "it" is burning down, pleasing as the thought is. Let us hope you prove wise in your assessment of reality, but I cannot quite accept that these people are so impossibly stupid that they would rather lose all than back off a smidge or two for the sake of letting tensions abate pursuant to saving the ship, so to speak.

    Um, you realize governments don’t create rights, don’t have? They come from your creator. The constitution was meant to make sure this government wouldn’t interfere with the rights people already have. You’re talking about a privilege. Those can be given and taken away at a whim.

    It's a strange distinction to draw between the undesirables born within the government's lines and those born outside them. Are we able to get these same tests for people born here and export them if they fail?? Perhaps America will finally fix our trade deficit!

    Importation of sunlight is detrimental to the American lightbulb manufacturers. We should create a tariff on anyone who operates their business during the day. Then, we'll all be rich thanks to the level playing field. Not to mention the national security concerns of us not being able to produce enough light bulbs to meet our needs if the sun ever stopped sending us its light. The sun is really trying to stick it to the American worker. H/T Freddy B.

    I get it - and I think Amash gets it, too. In the long view, Trump is doing the right thing here and Amash said as much. But I find it troubling how very few of us are acknowledging how "imperfect" his push for peace really is. Ron and Rand would have done the right thing, too, and would have received much of the same flavor of criticism, but the ensuing conversation would be MUCH different. The fact is this: Trump placated Russia in an obvious denial of the truth. Neither Ron nor Rand would have done that. Does Russia try to influence our elections? Of course they do. (notice I use "influence" or "meddle" and not the media's term, "interfere") All major nations try to influence elections in other countries. Hell, we have Radio Free Europe and Radio Free Asia to do that very thing! And that says nothing about our clandestine activities! The idea that Russia didn't try to influence us by sharing information is laughable. And yet, when given the opportunity to talk about this, he totally whiffed. If Obama would have done this, most of us would be able to recognize it. Amash is just giving us a reminder to take off the partisan blinders. Ron and Rand are choosing to ignore it for the larger picture - that it's better than trying to ramp up tensions like the media wants us to do.

    ?? What the hell are you talking about? I live in Ohio and my family is in Western PA. The under $50K white people are my crowd. lol Sure, many of them like Trump, but they HATE Hillary! They didn't go to the polls over immigration - they went to make sure that bitch wasn't in the White House. They would have voted for Lucifer if he had a chance to keep her from winning. We don't have immigrants taking our jerbs - we were losing our coal and steel jobs to regulation. Immigration was an issue, but it was way down the list. Top of the list??? Keeping out the Hildabeest. ETA this link: https://www.migrationpolicy.org/programs/data-hub/charts/us-immigrant-population-state-and-county Click on Total in the "Select Country/Region of Origin" box and look at the numbers by state. The states I listed are barely impacted by immigration. If you click into the states, you'll see it's even more localized and the areas most heavily impacted actually went for Hillary.

    So, I must live on the Amash planet, then. I, too, thought Trump did the exact right thing, but masterfully f'd it up. And to make it worse, he looked like a hostage reading his backtracking statement. I thought Ron and Rand were right to give Trump praise for doing the right thing, but they ignored the mistakes he made. Glad to see Amash isn't doing that. You don't go into a press conference looking like Putin's lapdog. You don't let him off the hook for "meddling" in the internal affairs of our country. If anything, you say, "Putin and I discussed ways to get the nations of the world to stop meddling in the affairs of other countries - something that ALL of our intelligence agencies do. Putin says they didn't do it?? Pfft. We ALL do it!" Would he take heat for that statement? Of course. But it's FAAAAAARRRR more accurate and it would prevent this ridiculous "rally 'round our intel community" thing you've got going on. In total, I think this is a big nothing and on the whole, it was a good thing if you take the long view. But it could have been so much better. Kudos to Amash for giving the praise and the concern.

    So, I would argue that the media have a very pro-government bias. Most times that appears to be "liberal", but they are also very pro-war. To your secondary point, you are also correct. It is in the fields where you find people who pay no price for being wrong that you find the most pro-government people. In most businesses, if you make bad decisions, you will soon go broke. These people tend to weigh the impacts of their decisions. But in journalism, education, arts, even law and politics, it doesn't matter how wrong you are as long as people are dazzled. You just ask for more. It is that mentality (Sowell called it the unconstrained vision) that figures there are no costs to being wrong - so they always want more government. "Oh, we were wrong about WMD's? Oh well, look what we're talking about this week!"

    Really? Is this what you think? That immigration was such an important issue in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Ohio??? The fact is that Hillary lost more than Trump won. And she most likely would have lost against any Republican candidate. Especially, if they spoke to the blue collar worker, which most of them were doing. As to the media, read what acptulsa said. They have a show to put on. And the best way to get ratings is to have people divided and agitated. That's why every news incident turns into a "controversy" with people lining up on either side. The media's job in the US is to make sure people are pointing the finger at each other instead of the government. Oh sure, they'll get mad at what the other party is doing with their power, but they will never take that power away from government - it's only about getting "the right team" to have the power. It's kinda sad that still, after all we've seen, that even in RPF some are still distracted by this performance art. Seriously, turn on CNN for a 1/2 hour... Look at it with an objective eye. Don't get caught up in the topic - it doesn't matter which topic they're using - pay attention to the message they're selling. They want the public to be riled up against the other party. Same with Fox, MSNBC, local news, social media, major newspapers... And whatever candidate that can draw more interest into that show is the candidate they prefer the most. It doesn't matter if they have an "R" or "D" beside their name, that's irrelevant. They'll get rewarded for how well they can keep people interested in the division show. Government will still grow in one area or the other, and when the next cycle comes up and they find a ratings candidate in the other party, they can pick back up and grow the opposite side of government.

    Have you not figured this out, yet?? When dealing with media, you need to look at line space or airtime. Those things are in limited supply and are the only things they can use to attract $$. So instead of looking at the words as "positive" or "negative", simply look at where they are spending their resources. Because they are doing it to get a return on their investments. Just like every other industry.

My personal story (pt2)

by CaptUSA on 02-24-2016 at 09:57 AM
Among my many interests was electricity and I decided that I wanted to change how the industry operates. Understanding the free market as I did, I was pissed that the coolest discovery in the history of mankind was being regulated to death by the government. I wanted to change that.

I found a job as a part-time temporary meter reader. My girlfriend went ballistic that I was quitting a salaried job for a part-time temp job, but I had complete confidence in what I was doing. Meter

My personal story (pt 1)

Iíve never used this blog feature before, but since people have wondered (and asked) about my personal story, I figured it was best to do it in here rather than the forums.

It may come across as anecdotal, but I assure you that this same type free market story is working itself out all over the country and the globe. Even in the face or increasing government interference.

I was born in Western PA the third of four boys. When I was still a baby, the second child died
