    I owe you some rep Osan. Every post in this thread by you nails it. I am not panicked, but like you, I think the Rubicon may very well have been crossed, and your advise to seriously consider where we are, where we are heading, and what we each are willing to do to either support or change the path we are on is quite simply, required of us. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. We haven't lived up to that, and it seems that for the lapse, we must now pay with significant interest what could have in the past been maintained with no significant cost but with some simple diligence. There are some solid folks here. I am sure there are also agents provocateur, and probably plenty of other unsavory types, who monitor and report on discussions here. So I am not going to suggest any action beyond serious consideration of our situation. Best of luck to the white hats - I'm sure most everyone on all sides has convinced themselves that they ARE the good guys - even Zippy, as difficult as that is to contemplate.

    Yeah I think this is true. I do think there is something to be said for self-guided learning, and so I think independent study is the best answer. BUT... From my own experience, I do see some advantages to at least a smidge of the other two options. I little bit of directed study can open up areas of interest for self guided study, but left completely on my own I likely would not have been interested enough to gain that basic knowledge that led to other things that I was surprised and pleased to find myself interested in. There's also something to be said for similarly learning to do things with your hands that you might not be inclined to try on your own for whatever reason. Same as the above, sometimes I have found both and interest and something I had some natural talent at which surprised me. I would definitely put it at something like 80% self directed, 10% lectures on something not necessarily of my choosing, and 10% of learning a skill, art, etc. Of course, you could say that me making those choices is ALL self directed (i.e. at this stage of my life I see the value of being exposed to things) but maybe others would feel different, and shouldn't be forced to do things my way.

    Don't let them get to you, kahless. Very few read anything on this forum any longer. It has next to 0 impact on anything. it's a mere shadow of the great site that Bryan first built. Now, it's overrun with people pitching world government and leftists of all flavors.

    Much more concerning to me than getting rid of bump stocks is what Judge Jeanine said at CPAC. Something about tracking kids. Sounded like ALL kids, as in their behavior, etc. Now, THAT is Orwellian. She was just talking about something she thought should be done, but then again it could be something she just tossed out there to see how the audience would respond. I found it very concerning. Maybe I misinterpreted it. Don't know. But, what I do know is that conservatives/patriots tend to go to sleep when someone they think is likewise is doing the talking. When if it was a leftist, they would be screaming bloody murder.
