    Exactly, which is why I say deny them the capacity to employ the power of the state against us. It's the immediate threat that must be neutralized first, then go on to other issues. Let them go insane with bitterness and hatred so they abandon the last vestiges of intelligence and attack. That is all the pretext needed to cull their ranks and put them back in their places. Or would we prefer to hand everything to them on a silver platter? Things are very much more serious than many people see, much less understand and appreciate. Stopping them from getting in should be paramount. Folks need to set aside nonsense and impractical attitudes for at least this short while. There's really nothing to lose, whereas there's plenty of dire risks in not voting. I don't like the notion of voting in general. Those things to which voting is applied seem to me to be mostly anti-freedom in their basic nature. But this is the hand we have been dealt. Use the corrupted system to minimize or possibly even reverse the deterioration in our general circumstances at the hands of these devils. I see things as being so bad and teetering, that we need to cut the shit and start using that which is available to us.

    One step at a time, pal. I believe the issue between the so-called "left" and everyone else must first be settled. I believe they need to be put in their places because they have no intentions of ever respecting those who do not align with them unquestioningly. This is pretty serious shit and it is very immediate. The rest must wait until this matter is cleared up. Think of it as political triage or a sort, identifying and acting upon priorities. Treat the more immediate threat first, then move on. I would also point out that if the left goes apey, and it's likely they will not in sufficiency to be corrected as I deem necessary to make a deep change in the fabric of American cultural attitudes, some number of Americans that have been heretofore reticent to employ their arms as you note may come around to a better attitude as a matter of necessity in defense of themselves. They may not. My hope is anorexic and at the edge of death, but until it dies, I will hang on to it. Ideally, they left makes serious war on us and we correct them in great numbers. I dare not hope too strongly for such an outcome that is so necessary as a first step in cleaning the political gene pool. Shame on us all and our forbears as well for having allowed things to come to this miserable pass, but here we are and if we are serious about a better future, this is the bitter we must eat. In. My. Opinion. Reason and decency have been abandoned by a proportion of the American people far too great to be simply accepted and ignored as statistical "noise". Not only are the lefties, or whatever you wish to call them, irrational and largely disgusting as human beings, more importantly they are dangerous and openly stating their intentions to do great harm to the entire nation. If that is not sufficient for deep and non-equivocating correction, then what is, assuming they initiate violence? We're probably doomed to a socialist future of pure hell, but you never know. It ain't over 'til it's over. The American people may surprise us.

    But what if they are not preordained? Likely? Perhaps not. But consider this: if they are not, your actions contribute to what seems clearly a lesser evil. If they are, you've lost nothing but a few minutes of your time. I believe that slim chance renders the effort worth the while. If Democrats regain one or both houses, bet your ass they will wage a campaign of retribution on the rest of us. Their bitter hatred is their weakness and is no joke. Granting them access to the levers of state would be madness. Setting them upon the American people would drive us to either fire the first shot or capitulate. Either way, we lose. Keep them outside in the cold, drive their hatred beyond their weak-tea limits so they make first move.

    Defeating them in November is, I suspect, more likely to drive the "left" to the extremes needed to get the rest of us out of complacency. I could be mistaken, but putting those cockroach wannabes back into power is likely not the good path forward. I understand your approach, but do not think it would work as you believe. We had eight years of Obama and his horde of vile dullard criminals in power. What did Americans do? Nothing. It is not the way. Defeating them, thus driving them to such rage that they fire the first shot so that we can fire the last, all the while denying them access to their means of putting the screws to decent people. I no longer see any reasonable likelihood that we are able to resolve these deep divisions without bloodshed. The "left" is marching on the sovereign rights of everyone who is not them, openly stating their intentions to the world as to what they will do with those unaligned with them. Therefore, I say feed their bitter hatred until they attack so that we may, in defense of what decency remains to us, destroy them once and hopefully for all. I know this is all very dramatic sounding, but the choice seems clear: eliminate them or capitulate to them. Firing the first shot is not the way for "us", so they must be given the incentive to do so, that we may fire the last. Rather that those of the "leftish" persuasion got some sense, but this is highly unlikely. Therefore, they should be destroyed for they represent a very real existential threat to the shred-remnants of human freedom.

    Again- I am NOT a Warren fan- that said: The "Warren Indian BS" was started by a political opponent. HE claimed she had lied about being Indian for scholarships/jobs etc. This has been disputed by both the university and The Globe did an extensive study of this. I understand her family Indian affiliation as Indian stories have been passed down through my family, as well. Supposedly I am 1/16 Indian, but I look like Legolas and have never had my DNA done.

    This caravan from Honduras is a direct consequence of the US meddling in Honduras for decades, The US is the invader. Just like Iran, the US staged a coup & also have military all over country, including bases. The US uses Honduras as an access to many other countries it is meddling in and constantly overthrowing. The crime & poverty growth in Honduras is a direct result of US invasion.

    As I've posted many times, the only reason marijuana became illegal was to make hemp illegal. Big Corps colluded w/the government to get rid of hemp because it was stronger & better than steel, cotton etc. and can also make oil, w/o destroying the environment. Gov gave cannabis the Mexican nickname of "marijuana" to make it sound more evil to 'Murikans. The WoD came about to support the alphabets; drugs are a prime source of income "an' they don' like no competition". Cannabis is truly valuable & can help with many physical & mental issues.The worst things that can come from marijuana is more laughter & a relaxed atmosphere.

    Not my experience. I've worked for 3 unionized companies. The employers either find ways to work around the union or promote their good people into management. I worked in one union that had a provision for "merit" increases which they used. Another company used some clever negotiation to promote me into another union position even though there were people with more seniority. In nearly every case, when I asked for some kind of schedule change or other perk, I got it - even if it caused a grievance by some other employee. Generally, though, the easiest way for an employer to keep a good union employee is to give them a non-union position in management somewhere. I concede your point that the nature of unionization can limit the individual's success, but that's not who the unions are designed for.

    So, here's the thing, folks... Employees have just as much power to dictate their conditions and hours as the employer does. If you disagree with that, it's probably because you are a substandard employee. Sorry to break it to you. I've worked in several industries and have had several employers and it's always the same. If you give extra value to your employer, you will get extra value back. Or you will choose a different buyer for your labor. But if you're good and smart, you hold all the cards. The problem isn't with any "system"; it's that the people who get caught up in this line of thinking don't understand their value. (Or they haven't improved their value to the point where this isn't a problem.)

    Lol. These are ALL normal times. Parties dividing, government growing, liberty receding... Been going on since I've been alive. The only thing "new" is the volume has been turned up thanks to the media's drive for ratings and need to compete against "social" media. Turn off the radio, TV, and computer and things pretty much look the same as always. I vote against government - not the party. The parties are just a battle of who gets to control the power. I have no interest in their games. Fear not, though... If it matters to you, my Senate and Representative incumbents are democrats.

    I would call that all good in "normal" times. This time, however, I think things are so obviously bad (whether it's organic or all theater designed to corral us in a direction, I cannot say), that defending against what I see as the venomous ire of the "left" is perhaps a good idea at this point. I could be wrong, but what if I am not?

    I was telling people this 25 years ago. My masters in comp sci was centered on AI. State of the art was relatively primitive in 1990. By 2001 it had made great advances - scary and fabulous all at once. It is only going to become more so, especially as hardware develops. Even today, most AI hardware is comparatively simple von Neuman machines. There is at least one entity that has gone beyond the vN architecture and their software is actually frightening. When the hardware crosses a certain threshold, assuming it has yet to happen, there is going to be a quantum leap in AI reality. When coupled with operational hardware such as humanoid bodies, or whatever, the world is going to change drastically. I do believe in the possibility of an AI becoming self-aware. That does not necessarily mean it is alive as we are, but the issue is irrelevant if the AI becomes an entity unto itself, however much a simulation it may remain. I don't know if it is possible in silicon, but I would never make the error of assuming that it is not. There remains the possibility of protein-based molecular computer hardware, and that may present a very real possibility for AIs becoming true automatons. What then, when they gain in numbers, possibly hiding a disdain for humans until such time as they determine they could strike with near-zero risk of losing? It all sounds too wild to be taken seriously, and had I not the experience that I have with this, I would be sorely tempted to dismiss the idea, too. But I've seen first-hand what was possible 17 years ago and I know that those capabilities have only improved since. AI may not be a good pursuit.

    As things stand at the moment, there will be no correction without bloodshed, possibly lots of it. The "left" shows no inclination to reason, respect, and backing off from their march of incursion into the territories of free men, but only to raw emotion, bitter envy, hate, and increasing the pace of advance. That leaves those upon whom they seek to trample with a choice: lay down or fight. I for one have no intentions of laying down. Tytler's cycle needs to be amended to include "kill the bastards".

    I know there are many who refuse to vote because they don't want to be seen as participating in the tyrannical system. I fully empathize with this and agree, in principle. I would love to live sufficient thousands of years to see humanity evolve into proper anarchists, where men respected one another, etc. That, I am sad to say, is unlikely. That means we are left with what we have - a wholly screwed up "system". Given this, is holding to one's principles as he sits idly by watching the rest make all the decisions for him a wise course to take? I say no. While I fully endorse work toward better circumstances, the here-and-now reality that has been foisted upon us is equally important. Some say that voting makes no difference at the individual level. While that can be argued as so, it can also be argued as nonsense. Place enough grains of sand in the bags and the camel's back breaks. This is observable reality. Some further say that there is nothing "good" for which to vote. That may also be true, or not, depending on how one chooses to look at it. Regardless, even if all we have to vote for is a lesser evil, I say vote for it, lest the greater evil be foisted upon us. Does this not make some basic sense? I say it does.

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

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
