    Nothing creates diversity like freedom. A better way to put this for these dummies is, "Freedom makes America diverse." You know, since it's so important to them.

    Oh yeah, this shit is rich. The attempt at brownie points is just too funny... in a sadly sick and impossibly twisted way. Seriously, those white people who feel this way should man up and kill themselves. Anything less tells me they are just attention-whoring. Oh, and I have to admit my curiosity as to where, exactly, they are trudging. What's the upshot here? Slave auction? Dunno if Manray is still in business in Boston, but they used to have slave auctions there weekly.

    Bannon did say Trump's presidency is over- as far as a fraud, I've always though Trump talked out of both sides of his mouth- you know, the art of the deal. ;)

    There is no issue with "hate speech". ANYTHING could be labeled "hate speech", including "good morning!" The moment you start partitioning speech in this manner and accept the tacit authority of others to limit and even punish it, you embark down a very dark road that leads nowhere good. We now have several relatively recent examples of what happens when "governments" do this sort of thing, and a mountain of ca. 200 million corpses that stand in mostly anonymous testament to the truth of how badly it goes. We should note the difference between speech and verbal threats. "I hate crackers" is not the same as "I'm going to kill you". The so-called "left" are doing everything they can to conflate the two. It seems to be succeeding*.

    It can become that, yes, but it is not necessarily so. The truth is the truth. That so-called "neocons" pervert it, either by design or though ineptitude, does not alter the facts. What you point out further underscores the need to be smart, as well as to have good personal integrity. The fact that these qualities are so rare, speaks no optimistic word for the future. It makes all the difference in the world. Firstly, if you re-read what I wrote, you will see that I pretty clearly posited that the lines between "intervention" and proper defensive action have become very blurred in some cases. If I'm walking the street at 3 AM and a man begins fiddling to draw a firearm, all else equal I am well justified in taking measures to forestall with a preemptive strike. It is no different between nations; if I have truthful intelligence that NK is about to launch a nuke at me, I reserve every right to strike first. Yes, this carries its own risks and potentially problematic consequences, but them's the breaks. It is sometimes a shitty, risk-laden world and we often run the chance of getting something terribly wrong. This is one of the results to be expected in a world where people refuse or otherwise fail to mind their own. In a Golden Rule world, things are very different, but none of us live there, even if we practice as if we did. I am, in fact, against intervention in the current sense of the word. But what yesterday might have clearly stood as intervention, today may well qualify as a defensive measure.

    Great article. +rep. I think it adequately explains why I've been having such a hard time engaging in this latest "controversy". I find it extremely difficult to relate at that level of consciousness. I think many of us in this forum are experiencing the same disconnect. We are among the few.

    Hmmm... I'd caution you that this is the path of neoconnery, but I'm not sure it would make a difference. You're not really against intervention - you just want them to do it the right way? Well, that's what they ALL say. The problem, of course, is that our government can't even get our own affairs right. And even if they were to somehow intervene in a manner of which you approved, there'd be a new administration in a couple of years to do the exact opposite. In other words, you can NEVER intervene smoothly. Unfortunately, pre-crime doesn't work. And those that try it, just put a larger target on themselves. Blowback.

    I serves to point out that the notion of intervening, in the usual contemporary sense, is no longer clear. What would have in an age past unequivocally qualified as "intervention", might today clearly be seen as a defensive measure. Our technologies, coupled with our apparent determination to cleave to world-views that appear not to serve well in the context of said technologies, have complicated human relations immeasurably. What was once black and white is now washed-out grey. My normative ideals tell me to mind my own business. My practice of those ideals say the same. What has changed in time is the definition of "my business". Two hundred years ago, there was comparatively little one nation could foist upon another beyond things such as invading with troops. Today, the technological capabilities of men allow them to develop means for foisting devastation upon their neighbors without stepping a single boot across borders. Computer attacks, long range missiles, bioweapons, and so on down that list. Consider Iran or North Korea. If we accept that they are developing nuclear capabilities for the sake of, say, hurting America (just to be self-centered), then from the purely practical standpoint, traditional "non-interventionism" becomes by degrees with time more and more untenable if one's goal is not to be, say, blown to nuclear smithereens. For me, among the true practical problems today is telling when a positive action against a global neighbor is rightly defensive, vis-ŗ-vis "intervention". The nature of the problem seems not so much one's ability to tell whether a threat is real, but whether those entrusted to make such determinations can be trusted for both capacity, as well as integrity. Consider our lovely little Gulf War, Part Deux. "Oh my GOD... weapons of mass destruction..." Well, that didn't turn out to be true. Is CIA inept? Doubtful, but that's irrelevant because it's either that or they were selling a very lousy bill of goods, which means they cannot be trusted. Then the question of how extensive the rot, arises. Personally, I am not in any way inclined to lend credence to the notion that these apparent failures are the result of mistakes, accidents, ineptitude, etc. The methods of waging war are well known and that which we see today fits the patterns perfectly. Modern warfare is become more about keeping people off their mental balance more than it is about bombs and bullets.

    One can but wonder whether this more recent wave of insanity, including the "trans-<X>" phenomena, the out-of-nowhere rise of "Antifa", etc., is just another poke pursuant to massaging the wad of humanity in a new perceptual direction, or are we witnessing initiation of some end-game?.

    Guess I need to revisit this thread to give an update. We decided on Option #3. They came down on the price for us which was a big influencer. The value for the money is really unparalleled. I'll let you know how it turns out. I'm sure the education for my son will be amazing and his peers will present plenty of unique opportunities for him and us.

    Unfortunately, that's probably exactly what you'll get. The evidence for vaccines is pretty clear. There are potential cons, but when you weigh them against the pros, it's pretty damn evident. If you want a "doctor" who ignores that evidence, don't be surprised what you find. (although, it's still pretty shitty. A real doctor would try to inform your decisions but they shouldn't refuse to see you if you choose otherwise. You shouldn't have a smoking habit either, but would the doctor refuse to see you just because you choose not to listen to him?)

    I'm pretty late to this whole thing, too, but I think it's more because I'm having trouble relating to the conversation as its being had. It's all about this group or that group and feelingz and sentimentz. When you see the people of the world as individuals and judge them each by their actions, this whole thing becomes so foreign. I'm certainly one of the most vociferous critics of Trump in here, but if I were in a car surrounded by a bunch of threatening people with bats pounding on my car, I would have gunned it. Trump did the right thing by focusing on the actions of people on all sides. He deserves credit for that.

    Sorry, but the Blacks in Africa actively participated in the slave trade. If the tribes had stood together instead of warring and selling off their captives, the black slave trade would have been virtually non-existent. There is no way in heaven or hell that any Dutchman could have caught those Africans- it's was only through the warring tribes that it was feasible. But, unfortunately, soon all history will be flushed down the toilet of whoever's-winning-at-the-moment.

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

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
