    Based on our respective miserable experiences in high school, where learning was actively discouraged, my wife and I have home-schooled our children. Homeschooling has definitely been the right choice for us. However, homeschooling isn't for every family. One of my son's friends, around the same age, was also home-schooled. He doesn't know anything about history, can't do basic algebra, and thinks the apostrophe is used to make words plural. He's a bright kid, but he hasn't been taught anything. It's up to the parents to make homeschooling successful.

    Thanks for the article and the video. These three academics are heroes. They've exposed the biases in the so-called Grievance Studies field. And they are likely to receive a major backlash from the SJW crowd as a result of their expose. I wish them the best of luck. The papers they wrote were ridiculous. It's very clear that these "GS" publications are lacking any serious peer review. Unfortunately, the SJW mob is likely to dismiss the expose as not relevant due to "Helen Pluckrose" being 2/3rds white male, and some on the right will smear the entire academic peer-review process, rather than recognizing that it's this "Grievance Studies" field that is the problem.

    Any bets on how long it will take before the system is either hacked, or some dimwit presses the "this is not a drill, a nuclear war has started; seek immediate cover" button, like what happened earlier this year in Hawaii?

    Thanks for the honest answer. I appreciate that. I cannot understand how someone will support Trump while also stating they believe Trump could nominate a judge that would "shred the entire Constitution and every amendment".

    That wasn't my question. My question was: Do you think Trump would nominate a judge that would "shred the entire Constitution and every amendment"?

    "Many worse judges" than the guy who stripped away the 4th Amendment? And I don't expect to get Trump to withdraw his nomination by posting here. I hope to get at least one RPF member to stop posting silly defenses of someone who has no defense, and who rightly belongs behind bars for his collusion against the American people.

    I think you pick your battles, and in this instance, I think a portion of RPF has picked the wrong battle, obscuring what really matters. I asked the other day: if it were Dick Cheney being accused of rape, would you defend him? The answer I got is yes, because he didn't rape anyone. But Cheney's actions, with the false pretense Iraq War, did cause the rape of thousands of women in Iraq, including Abeer. Iraq is unquestionably worse off than when Saddam Hussein controlled it, as are Libya and other "liberated", "regime changed" countries, where mob rule is the only rule of law. The masterminds of the "War on Terror" must pay. "But Kavanaugh didn't rape anyone!" you'll say. But it's wasted protest. No one outside of RPF will even see the defense, and most of the SJW crowd isn't reading RPF. "But if we let this happen, it will set a precedent, and the Left's attacks will continue!" you'll say. But even if you defend Kavanaugh from rape charges on RPF, the Left's attacks will continue. It's not a precedent, it's a way of life for SJWs. Defending him on RPF is wasted effort on scum who rightly belong behind bars. There are 100,000 classified documents on Kavanaugh's tenure in the MIC. These documents are protected by "constitutional privilege", according to the DOJ. Which just means they would be a PR nightmare for the DOJ and the Executive Branch if they were released to the public. OP is right: Kavanaugh is the swamp.

    I suspect that is the case. By focusing on a rape that may or may not have happened in 1982, the kangaroo court can distract the public from pesky little issues like Kavanaugh's record as a long-time Bush/Cheney crony and one of the main architects of the so-called "Patriot" Act. They've been so successful, in fact, that even long-time RPF members are openly defending this piece of shit.

    What do you mean, Swordsmith? Paypal's Terms of Service, which you must agree to before using them, clearly state: They can terminate services for any reason. It's in their terms of service.

    :D :tears: PayPal is a private company. I can't believe we're observing Alex Jones whine about discrimination from a private company, and seeking government intervention... (Actually, I can. I've known Alex Jones was a fake since at least back as far as his claim that he fucked over 150 girls when he was 15.)

    Exactly. No one who drafted the Patriot Act should be on the Supreme Court. The idea that liberty-minded individuals should support this nomination is ridiculous. That is a distinct possibility.

    I didn't "fall for" anything, as I take no position on the Kavanaugh/Ford testimonies. It doesn't matter to me whether he's lying, or she's lying, or they're both lying. You have mistaken my position, which is that I don't care whether or not either of them are lying. Kavanaugh shouldn't be a Supreme. As I said, I don't know what he did in 1982. But I know what Kavanaugh did in 2001, as one of the main architects of the so-called Patriot Act: https://71republic.com/2018/09/28/kavanaugh-supports-government-spying/

    As far as I can recall, there have never been four Attorneys General (or acting AGs) in the space of two years. That would be a record. I suspect, though, that Sessions is on his way out. At this rate, we'll have 8 or 9 AGs during Trump's administration, assuming it only lasts four years. Having Kavanaugh as the Attorney General would be just as bad as him being on the Supreme Court. We need fewer neocon shitheads in the Executive Branch.

    As I already indicated when I stated I don't know what happened between Kavanaugh and Ford in 1983, I don't know that the accusations are false. But I wouldn't support Kavanaugh for dog catcher. There was a time when you wouldn't, either, UW. From 2010 to 2014, you spoke frequently, even eloquently, about the illegal wars abroad, and the surveillance state. You even stated you personally wanted to waterboard the architects of the global "War on Terror". Something happened to you in the 2016 election. You now not only support Trump's neocon administration, you'll now even advocate for his authoritarian nominees, including the dude who helped mastermind the Patriot Act.

    :smirking: As if there were only two choices. The fact of the matter is that there are many qualified judges who didn't help write the Patriot Act, who could fill the position. The idea that liberty-minded people should support people who wrote the Patriot Act is foolish. I don't know what happened between Kavanaugh and Ford circa 1983, but I do know what happened in 2001. I won't support one of the architects of the Patriot Act.

    The wise words of Ron Paul. I remember very clearly the "babies thrown from incubators in Kuwait" lie that our own government used to persuade American citizens to support the original US invasion of Iraq. I even remember at the time being skeptical of the claim, as it made no sense for invaders to try to kill babies. I remember the way the media at that time reported this lie unquestioningly. And I remember the NYT printing a story, years later, revealing the story was, of course, false... burying the story on Page 6. Then I remember the "weapons of mass destruction" lie, years later, used to justify the second invasion of Iraq. The lies are now endless. Trump's 1.3 trillion dollar spending bill should be a wake-up call to everyone here, as if there were any doubt, that he is a big-government neocon. The federal government continues to lie to the American people. Trump lies to the American people. No wars will end while Trump is in office, and we'll just add more countries to the list of "regime change" targets. Nikki Haley's actions are proof.

    This actually started out as a discussion of Lindsey Graham's comments at the Kavanaugh hearing, and devolved into you (again) asserting that the Republicans are better than the Democrats. Aside from a few liberty-leaning Republicans, the Republicans are actually worse than the Democrats on many issues. And the same could be said about Republicans. The two-party duopoly prevents a third party from ever gaining a good foothold. You've made almost 22,000 posts in a little less than 2.5 years. That works out to about 25 posts per day, without breaks on the weekends. Is this... is this your job?

    But you're not a single-issue voter, are you? For example, when the vote for the "Patriot" Act was held in the House, 66 Democrats and 1 Independent voted no, but only 3 Republicans voted no. It was a clean sweep for Republicans in the Senate, every single one of whom voted for the Spy Programs. One of the worst bills in American history, and one which cost taxpayers billions of dollars, and it was the Republicans who nearly unanimously supported it.

    The GOP controls the House, the Senate, and the Oval Office, and you are blaming the Democrats for Republicans betraying the American people? How many fewer Democrats would there need to be in order for Republicans to not betray us? Come on, Swordsmyth! That is a lame excuse.

    I'm definitely in favor of it. In what other profession is a work appointment for life? As far as I know, life tenure is limited to high-ranking judges in the US... and popes in the Vatican.
