    I was probably one of the most anti-Trump people in this forum. Not for TDS reasons, but because of policy reasons. But yeah, I'm hoping he wins. And I'm hoping he starts to dismantle the apparatus of the State. I have no expectations that he'll actually do that, but the alternatives are even worse. So yeah, I'll cast my meaningless lot for the only slim shred of a hope we have available to us and I'll continue to ensure the safety, prosperity, and sanity of my own family.

The pundit expressed trepidation over the fact that Rose, a person of color with mainstream fame, spoke at the RNC, noting that she’s appealing to people in liberal circles who may be frustrated with Democratic policies. "That was probably the most dangerous speech for the Democratic coalition," Jones said about Rose’s speech while covering the first night of the convention in Milwaukee. Rose’s speech at the GOP convention provided a story of her own political conversion, explaining how she went from thinking Trump was a "racist," to supporting his movement.

    I've heard other people speculating on that as well, but I think that was based on the sound. The problem is that that sound we were hearing was filtered to listen to a speech and eliminate crowd noise and the gunshots were 150 yards away. FBI special agent in charge Kevin Rojek said Crooks used an AR-style rifle chambered in 5.56mm - I have no reason to doubt that. I personally heard from people at the event that there was no way it was a .22.

    Of course. I never thought union bosses were the target here, but the rank and file. The historic problem for the GOP is that they have been portrayed as being on the side of big business. It comes back to that dividing line where it's not the business that's the problem, but where they get their money from. If they get their money from selling a useful product or service, then there's no reason to disparage them. If they get their money through political lobbying, special favors (ahem, including import tariffs), or Fed-inflated investor money, then that hurts the worker the most. It's a tightrope walk for sure, but I know that the rank and file union workers aren't on board with this new democrat party, but they still feel like they're better than the Republicans for their jobs.

    Okay. The devil is in the details. These details to be precise. Teamsters president Sean O'Brien delivered a fiery address to close out the first night of the Republican National Convention, castigating big businesses and corporate lobby groups for "waging a war against American workers" — and calling for labor law reform. What "labor law reform" does he want?

    I've been saying for about a decade now that the GOP needed to court the labor unions. The Democrats have left their flank wide open. They focus on the elites and the working men get left behind. And then they despise workers as "unclean". Glad to see this is finally coming to fruition. FWIW, you can be pro-union, but anti-compulsion.

    Whatever you say, though not really. For one thing, he's not unassailable. For another, this can get him votes here and there. Even your omniscient ass can't know for sure unless he stops doing it. In the end, he wouldn't be the first son to do certain things the way hid dad always did.

    It's a good indicator that said individual is a Republican. Otherwise, no, he plays the endorsement game just like his dad did. Can't work to fix things if you can't stay in the workshop.

    The she he is referring to is RFKJr's campaign manager. He dismissed the possibility months ago in another thread that someone could quit the CIA, write a serious exposé of it and survive. You disproved that hypothesis.

    1 and 2 are concerning to me, too. 3 is just marketing. 4 is a bit of guilt by association. As for not having a solid ideology, that should suit Trump perfectly!

    Billions printed and given to Pfizer produced sickness, death, scarcity and want. The scarcity and want was exacerbated by trillions printed for the MIC to produce the weapons currently being used by the Ukraine.

    As usual, Trump doesn't seem to be able to focus, to get right down to the problem. And of course he won't go into his own culpability in the matter. I think you nailed it when you typed the word "panders".

    Agreed. Disagreed. Con men abound. The Bible says the End Times are full of false prophets, and that (for unspecified reasons) is God's will. The Hegelian Dialectic works because people will be hypocrites if it gives them an easy way out. Have eyes to see and ears to hear what lies beneath.

    To continue, We are on the right side of the climate debate - they want to control humanity and limit the population and choices. We know that abundant energy is a boon for humanity's prosperity! We are on the right side of allowing people to defend themselves as they see fit. They want to rob you of that. We are on the right side of economics. They want to steal wealth and give it to their powerful friends. We want people to keep the fruits of their labors and we know that individual decisions based on consequential knowledge, rather than institutional knowledge, provide for the best results for all of humanity. We are against slavery - they pretend they are, but their actions say differently.

    You'll wait for me to catch up? Pride goeth before a fall. I'm not worried about whether God will win in the end. Catch up with this: I'm trying to keep people from selling their souls to the very real power of the devil to claim them. A friend is mad at me. Once upon a time she was screwing up big time, and her kids were taken away and placed in her brother's custody. She straightened up, but her brother still didn't trust her and wouldn't let the kids and her spend time together. Her son was in puberty and feeling a real need to get re-acquainted with his mother. So, I pissed off both the brother and the sister. This gave them a common enemy, and because they had a common enemy, they started communicating again. I got her what she wanted (I did it for her son, but nevertheless) and she's still screeching autistically about me. Kind of like you're doing. She not only can't figure out the Lord's mysterious ways, she can't even figure out mine.

    Yes. It's almost like the battle between good and evil are putting on a display for us to wake us up. I'm not a religious person, either, but this seems hard to deny. The forces of evil conspired to put a killer on a roof with a clear line of sight to Trump, eluding the entire security apparatus set up to prevent that. Whether that be merely a miraculous coincidence or actual nefarious people involved in that evil doing. And then on the flip side, Trump slightly turns his head at the exact moment the bullet hits him. I don't think there are any conspiracy theories that could possibly cover that part - the forces of good performed a straight up miracle. And then Trump stands up like a boss with his ear bleeding raising his fists telling us to fight and an iconic photo being snapped at the perfect angle to capture weak Secret Service agents, the blazing American flag and a defiant Trump. It's a little hard to take it all in from a real-world perspective... It certainly does feel like messages being sent by the universe. I'm not religious, but I do see the world in terms of energy. And all energy, whether electric, chemical, emotional, or spiritual follows certain laws and there are positive and negative polarities. It does seem like we are getting a glimpse of a reality that is hidden by our common understanding.

    Assumption is dangerous. Underestimating this enemy is foolish. Just because they spoon-feed you a narrative doesn't make it so. Quite the opposite. Why is everything so weird these days? Because the media -- both that aimed at freaky progs and those aimed at Pepe frogs -- has way too many people trying to stuff others into molds, trying to make them into the cardboard cutouts the media creates and labels "the enemy". Do we have eyes to see and ears to hear each other? Try forgetting your assumptions and starting over here:

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)

by CaptUSA on 02-24-2016 at 09:55 AM
I’ve 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
