    Right - she IS the democrat marco rubio. You cant prop someone like that up forever. Its like following the bull through the china shop... Sooner or later something is going to hit the floor, and break into a thousand pieces.

    Human nature isnt affected by who's president. I believe this is why congress was to be the predominant branch of government. Because human nature craves tyranny - people are easily manipulated, regardless of whether its a "D" or an "R". So, in other words, "New boss is just the same as the old boss"... Same arc, same pendulum., same economic policy, same domestic policy, same foreign policy, same welfare nonsense - the only thing that changes is who is spewing the rhetoric. Hulk Hogan, or Macho Man - they're both the same when you get down to it. The game of politics is no different - people love to pretend, and this is why voters will take a politicians word on issues. Many are waiting for "Crooked Hillary" to be indicted - any day now, right? Or wait, its everyone else working against trump, and it wont happen. There's no chance that trump was talking out his a$$, cause that's not what the republicans do - only democrats talk out of their a$$.

    You're only a dumb dumb if you dont learn from your mistakes. I had a car with a points type distributor. I got a rebuild kit and was trying to remove the rotor and shaft, but apparently it had a bend to it preventing the easy removal. So I continuously pulled as hard as I could, as fast as I could till it jammed, Then I'd push it down as hard as I could - repeating this cycle... At least until I got my finger underneath the points cam on the way down - I nearly severed the end of my middle finger off, and across the garage went the distributor chased by a string of angry obscenities. My then girlfriend, now wife, quickly left the garage, not even saying a single word... Lessons: 1. Never let a situation get the better of you, to the extent that you are not aware of where your fingers are. 2. Sometimes its worth a few bucks to just buy a new distributor, saving frustration and injury.

    Ok - so what should I label myself? I need to make sure I'm using the right label. Not ancap, and not globalist - somewheres betwixt the two. I dont think I'm intelligent enough to grasp a sovereign state that is able to exist without any government, or any concern for immigration. How is that possible? "Slab City, California"? I tend to agree with Jefferson on most issues, including government being a necessary evil that requires constraints on size, with a cyclical reset. ETA: If you were keeping illegals on your property, I would not consider them illegal aliens. I also not consider you a law breaker - its your property, you should have a right to have whoever you want on it. Am I a minarchist now?

    "immigration restrictionist"... I suppose that might be a somewhat accurate label - its a fair point of contention. While I have more in common with ancaps and anarchists, I still consider myself a minarchist. I do wish to limit who enters the country, as I believe in its sovereignty. What's particularly strange about this debate is the focus on words. I'd seen this in my gun owner's rights battles - "Assault weapons". "Undocumented immigrants" - is one of those subversive phrases used to describe what is clearly illegal activity. Why is it even necessary? Its necessary because people that use these phrases want to ignore the law. Unfortunately, no matter what side of the issue you're on, government has to manage immigration. Just like everything else they do, its a fking mess. That being said, I think its no coincidence that they are pandering to a certain class of immigrants (Mexican). One might ask why that is, but is pretty obvious and discussed heavily on other threads. What this all boils down is an assault on our sovereignty, for political or corporate gain. There's no regard to the law, or the cost that is incurred, and the rest of us (including my children, and their children) will be paying the price. I'm pretty sure that we are going to disagree on this topic, and that's ok, but I wanted to be clear as to where I am coming from. I dont see myself as being ignorant on the matter, just having a difference in opinion.

    Reminds me of Glenn Beck - remember that fking guy? I've noticed with Ben Swann, John Stossel, and Andrew Napolitano - there is a lot of pressure on journalists to spew the network's agenda. They either suck it up and maintain employment, or they move on to other things. There's definitely heavy bias in all of our media now. Some say its the death throes of the legacy media, as they try to compete with the internet. All the hyperbole, and plain circus antics, are desperate attempts to keep an audience. My conspiracy senses pick up something more sinister though, and that comes from the heavy media consolidation that has occurred over the past few decades.

    Considering that most are politically/economically illiterate, the relentless media attacks, and the fact that Rand is willing to hold his own party accountable - that's a fantastic number, and right where he needs to be. He still commands enough approval to keep his office, while being effective in shaking sh!t up.

    Even if you get this wrong, you had a 50% chance to get it right(or left). The numbers indicate that they dont even try. Even an attempt would result in 50% success for the first try, and theoretically 100% on the second. My children will be fked by the future, in so many ways. Mostly due to decisions made by boomers and the great gen, but they will have little competition when it comes to self reliance and being independent. When bears are chasing you, I guess its nice to have a few stragglers. Perhaps they'll have an opportunity to be in a position of benefit, given whatever sh!tty system exists during their lifetime?

    We should start a nationwide campaign to support a 95% shutdown. If anything, it could expose this nonsense of there being a current shutdown.

    brushfire replied to a thread Roku in Science & Technology
    I'm with you on that - in my situation though, I lost (sacrificed) my anonymity fighting for gun owners rights. While I always advocate dialogue (hence my handle), I am under no illusion that I'll always have that luxury. I also have a license to carry in IL - essentially a registered gun owner. Lastly, I'm on record for donating to several candidates - Ron and Rand, as well as volunteering for other IL candidates. For a SHTF situation, I would expect to be high up on the list of potential resistance - where I should be. I'm ready to talk, or fight... Seeing Lavoy Finicum bing gunned down while he was trying to talk, leaves me to think I will not have any real opportunities to talk. Even during good times, these are dishonorable men - one can only imagine their behavior during SHTF.

    A hacked "kodi" firestick may be your only recourse. I have a couple roku - my family loves it. I'm already on so many lists, I dont think they even give a sh!t what I watch on roku (thank you comcast). If sh!t hits the fan, they would be fking right to pursue me. They better hope they snuff me out too.

    There's so much shady sh!t going on with the deep state - people should be very concerned. Say what you will about trump, but everyone should realize that this deep state is a threat to our republic, and a menace to the rest of the world. Its a very bad situation that cannot be excused because we have someone like trump in office.

    Well... like I say - It's not meant to be a quote

    I like the Old Testament for the history of that part of the world, particularly the history of the Jews.

    I like the New Testament for the teachings of Jesus. Don't care much for the teachings of Paul.

    I think we (the West) can learn a lot from the spirituality of India regarding killing, vegetarianism, and karma.

    I consider myself 'spiritual', rather than 'religious'.

    My favorite church in town is a Hare Krishna temple

    nah... I don't think so ("don't kill" vs "don't murder")

    I like the King James Version "don't kill". He assembled the greatest biblical scholars in Europe at the time - arguably the most intensely researched translation in history.

    Plus, 'murder' implies (by definition) that we shouldn't kill humans, while 'kill' implies we shouldn't kill anything - if we don't have to. I feel the same way. Bad karma.
