    Take multi-vitamins and extra vitamin D. Stay vertical as much as possible - even when sleeping. Get fresh air and sunshine (harder to do this time of year depending on where you are). I took ibuprofen to help with the headaches and achiness. Took about a week and a half for me. The first couple of days were the worst and they tapered off from there. It seems to hit overweight people harder, but there's not much you can do at this point. It's all about how quickly your immune system can respond. If your wife has pneumonia, she's already pretty far down the bad path, so it can take longer to clear. Most likely, you'll both be fine. Good luck and check in to let us know how it's going.

    It's the unconstrained vision - no matter who uses it. When the left uses it, they think they can foster a utopia by controlling the actions of dissenters to their master plan. When the right uses it, they think they can create the same result in global affairs. Individual liberty is always in trouble when the unconstrained vision takes hold.

    They must be crediting it with a mind of its own because it was built a truck, but keeps self-identifying as a "car". The Challenger is a cis-car.

    So, Baldwin said to someone, "If she calls for another take, I'm going to fucking shoot a blank at her"? He didn't mention that in his interview. Trump said he could shoot people and get away with it. Baldwin isn't Trump, but played him on TV. And he did, and seems to be getting away with it. Celebrity worship is hard on this country.

    Just remember that it's a perspective thing. Here, I'll give you an example... Most libertarians agree that sex between consenting adults is none of the government's business. Even if someone is getting paid for it. But depending on our own perspective, some people may find it in bad taste for, say, a Las Vegas Congressperson to flaunt it by having whores draped over his arms. One could make the case that the more it is "normalized", the more effective it will be for liberty. But you could have others (who also support that right) that may not like it being portrayed at "cutesy". Both points of view can legitimately be held. It's one of the things that make liberty so great. Billy could learn that lesson, but so could all of us.

    Agreed. His statement was stupid. And narrow-mindedly focused on his own limited perspective. Especially, since Massie is taking a lot of heat for posting that. My preferred method is to deal with that through education instead of mockery. Those who hold libertarian views are so rare these days that I'm not fond of driving more wedges between us.

    Did enlistees know they'd be required to take an experimental "vaccine" which is ineffective at preventing a disease which has a 99.9% survival rate for their demographic when they signed on the dotted line? Are they free to quit if they disapprove of the unannounced change to the contract? After all, they only just changed the dictionary to redefine graphene nanotubes full of God knows what as "vaccines". Like, since these people signed up. And how do you justify Tuskegee? Of course libertarian-minded folk can take a dim view of that crap. I find it surprising anyone could think otherwise.

    Yes, there's a wedge being driven between God and country, and deliberately so. But then again, is the country Washington, or is the country the three hundred million of us who actually do something productive? Is resisting Washington treason, or is Washington so far from the Constitution that obeying Washington is treason? For all the noise and clamour 24/7, the silent majority has never been harder to hear. You have rights guaranteed by all the first ten amendments. Against this "vaccine", the first, fourth and fifth can all apply, the first in speaking out about it, the fourth very directly, and the fifth in resisting things like vaccine passports. So far, I think the Tenth has been most powerful. I wonder if they'll keep pushing until it comes down to the Second?

    So, I'm going to say this knowing it may not be the most popular opinion... I think we need to be a little careful defining what "true libertarians" will say. We run the risk of pushing these people into the hands of the Marxist left. Based on his articles, this guy seems to be focused on the criminal justice farce of government. That's a good thing. To me, his dumbass Twitter comment is clearly centered in the urban/rural divide. Many people who grow up in the cities have been taught to fear guns - not just to respect them. When they hear shots in their neighborhood, they're not wondering who is practicing or if someone bagged a deer. They can very easily equate gun use to crime. From my perspective, this guy is suffering from the "fear culture" of the cities. But I can recognize that he's not viewing the world with the same perspective as I am. From his perspective, proper gun use (and gun display) is to protect people from their fears. Let's not fall into the trap that all true libertarians have to share the same perspective. It's never going to happen. What's worse is that we end up in a circular firing squad going after those who would support us instead of the true enemies. He started it by making a stupid statement about the rural perspective, but no need to cast him aside so quickly or turn him against us. It'd be better to educate him on how different environments create different viewpoints, but we all need the freedom to allow different viewpoints to exist. In other words, expanding the range of libertarian thought rather than reducing it.

    Talk to a lawyer about writing a letter. Which lawyer? I don't know. Try all discrimination suit specialists in the neighborhood and see if anyone bites the bait. A letter from a lawyer is an ounce of prevention that often pays off.

    More than Hunter Biden. Pelosi and Romney also have children heavily invested in Ukrainian natural gas. Which leads me to believe the puppet won't be rolling over for Putin on this. Turn the Ukraine into Vietnam? I'm counting on it. Nukes? Don't rule them out. This whole green energy/electric car snow job is there to sell natural gas. And Ukraine has lots of it.

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
