    Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying they shouldn't try it. They never let the fact that their plans were stupid stop them before. I'd hate for them not to try one more stupid plan, especially one that could so easily be their last.

    So, there are 16,410 incorporated towns with a population of under 10,000, and at a bare minimum, half again as many unincorporated settlements. That figure of 100 foaming at the mouth liberals per has me curious. Have they got twenty-five million insane people at their beck and call, or are they going to travel from town to village and expect to maintain the element of surprise?

    I'm sure the corporate press will try to keep it alive just like Jan 6th... But I think most people will find that this ruling has almost NO impact on their lives. Those who will be driven to vote in the mid terms by this issue already reside in blue states where nothing in the law will change. Meanwhile, their pocketbooks are being drained every day by the policies of those currently in power.

    Validity turns on the precise meaning of "textualism". As for tradition, that should have no part of such decisions.

    Both decisions were based on principle and textualism. There is not right to an abortion written into the constitution. There is an individual right to bear arms written into the constitution. Really, the gun issue was decided back in 2008. I'm surprised it took this long to strike down New York's gun law.

    How is it that SCOTUS decides one case based on principle (Roe), yet another (NYS licensing scheme) on "text and tradition"? What in hell goes on inside those skulls? Principle is all that matters. Lynching used to be tradition for southern Democrats, yet I can no longer gather me up a bunch o'negroes and have me a fine old-timey hangin'. The inconsistency of these people underscores the tenuous nature of our liberties when they are placed in the hands of strangers whose abilities and allegiances all stand in deep question.

    I'm sure I am mistaken, but this sort of tactic has the feel of something that would stand in violation of election statutes along the lines of "undue influence" or "coercion" pursuant to an outcome that otherwise would be unlikely.

    SCOTUS rightly kicks Roe to the curb and the "left" goes apoplectic. Those people seem utterly unwilling to ever give measured responses to any development with which they disagree. It's always exasperated cries of how the sky is falling. When I am alone in the car, I usually listen to NPR because it's good to hear how the enemy thinks. I don't listen with Bibi in the car for fear she will draw her sidearm and put the radio, and possibly some vital system of the car, permanently out of commission. With the overturn, it was the height of cheap amusement to hear the NPR drones going off about how the world was ended. Are they that egregiously ignorant? Dishonest? Both? They claimed it was the end of abortion and contraception. Neither claim is true. All the decision did was to rightly declare that there is no constitutional right to an abortion, which in my thinking strikes more at federal funding, than anything else. They are going off in similar fashion on the 2A ruling. NJ's governor and AG got up before the cameras and waved their hands for all they were worth, declaring how "most New Jerseyans" want strict gun laws and now Joizey has one of the lowest rates of gun violence in the nation, etc. NJ's crime rate is through the ceiling. Murder is high there, but I guess being cut to ribbons, beaten to death, tossed off a precipice, etc., are better than being shot. "...ronka ronka ronka...you still have to have a permit to carry a concealed weapon in NJ... ronka ronka ronka..." Honesty, basic intelligence, and smarts seem alien to these people.

    Oh, they'll comply all right, in the only way that actually matters. They'll go into "stealth" mode and stash their non-compliant magazines for "future use" (what's wrong with NOW?). The more creative among them will coat them with cosmoline, vaccuum pack them with a little dessiccant and burry them somewhere "safe." Then they'll pick up some compliant mags and when they go out shooting use those, demonstrating for all to see that thy have, in fact, bent the knee. Then, as will occasionally happen, one of them will be caught with their contraband (turned in by an angry ex, or innocently by a careless child at school) and be prosecuted and sent to prison. The rest will be all like "Hey, didi you hear about poor Bob?", but they'll just continue along their cowardly path, oblivious to the fact that their actions pretty much nullify any utility that general firearms ownership might otherwise provide. And around and around it will go.

    What? You mean San Fran Nan's "Asian hate crimes bill" wasn't enough to assuage Asian American's concerns about rising crime? Seriously? /sarcasm I suspect there will be a significant shift in the Asian American vote this fall.

    The Roe v. Wade "opinion" was written by 9 men, 8 of them white men. Men (especially white men) should have no opinion on abortion. Therefore Roe v. Wade is a invalid "opinion." Make that into a t-shirt and sell it.

    Interesting read. But it has nothing to do with the 2nd amendment. The founders were careful to put the word "congress" in the first amendment and leave it out of the 2nd.

    Okay. So what do you think is the relevance of the fact that Nunn v Georgia was a state supreme court decision that recognized that the 2nd amendment applied to the states?

    The constitution was ratified as a result of the problems that led to Shays' rebellion. You mentioned "mutual protection" among the states. (I may have your wording off, but I've got the thought.) Shays' was an unpaid Revolutionary War veteran. His local state was still oppressing him and his fellow vets with taxes, he was getting no debt relief from the merchants, and he and other vets were basically watermelon seeds that were being squeezed to hard. In short, the articles of confederation were a provable failure. Yep. There's a lot I don't like about the current system as well. But the "mutual protection" goal that you (and I) agree is necessary for a country, be it federal or confederate, cannot happen either without an individual right to bear arms or a large central military. Over the years the right to keep and bear arms has diminished at the same time the size and scope of the federal military has increased. I don't think that's an accident.

    Okay. Well part of that existence is the second amendment and I'm happy for that even though you are not. And states cannot effectively execute the "purposes of mutual defense" (as YOU put it), without either A) a large standing army or B) an individual right to bear arms. It simply cannot happen. So...which would you rather have? The 80000000 ton gorilla that is the military industrial complex that we all see going around the world brutalizing everyone, or the "800 pound gorilla", as you described it, pissing on poor New York's ability to brutalize it's own citizens? Take your pick.

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
