    I saw in yesterday's game that Ginobili is the second oldest NBA player. Oldest is Vince Carter. I didn't even know Carter was still playing. Another graphic said Ginobli is 3rd all-time in playoff 3-pointers. I guessed Ray Allen and Reggie as 1-2, but James is actually second (never would have guessed that). I think this is the last game the Spurs win. Guessing their tank is probably empty.

    Liberals and Libertarians agree that public/private collusion is a bad thing. It's just the solutions we disagree on. Human nature is human nature...Amazon isn't going to pay .01 more than they have to. Workers aren't ever going to go home at night and say, "Yes, that's a perfectly fair wage for this job that requires very little special skills." And politicians are going to use tax money to buy votes.

    Related article I read today: Censorship And Suppression Of Free Speech Online Is A ‘War Against Ideas’ http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/censorship-and-suppression-of-free-speech-online-is-a-war-against-ideas_04232018 Propaganda has TWO major parts. Most of us pick up on the "Repeat the Lie" part, but there is another major half of Propaganda for it to work, and that is to OMIT any ideas which reveal the lie or promote / teach thinking for ones self. Belief, Money, Violence A persons system of Belief can be used to enslave them just as well as it can be used to Liberate them. If the voices of those who use their words to Liberate the minds of others while only allowing a subject to have access to is ideas that Enslave them, what is the likely outcome? Propaganda is used to empower smaller groups or individuals to control entire groups.

    Agree. "Do No Evil" is just as deceptive as putting the face of Andrew Jackson on the $20 fiat currency bill when his epitaph is "I killed the Bank", referring to the 2nd Central Bank of the US. Data on people is the ability to control people, thus, Data is a New Currency to be exchanged between the elite and powerful.

    https://yro.slashdot.org/story/18/04/22/1828213/who-has-more-of-your-personal-data-than-facebook-try-google If you have a Facebook acct, then Facebook knows who you like and everything you do, on Facebook. Google on the other hand doesnt care if you have a Google account, but look at how hard they push you to have a Google account. Facebook is one website people go to. Google is one step higher, writing the software that serves many websites and other "free tools", like WP or Google Analytics. Due to the use of Google tools, Google phones, Google browsers, Google has the ability to collect an order of magnitude more information than Facebook. Much like Amazon is positioned not to take place in the market but to be the ENTIRE market, Google is positioned to BE the internet as almost everything runs on Googles "free" stuff.

    Insisting that evil Amazon should be forced into paying over a market wage means you're siding against the free market. We can agree that this isn't a free market, but moar force isn't the Libertarian solution. Let the workers starve. When they reach a point where they can't pay their bills any longer, their children are hungry at night, they will seek employment elsewhere, or they will seek a way to make themselves more valuable . Or they'll vote for people who promise to force Amazon to pay them more even though they're not worth more. Congratulations - you win. I can't stand the appeal to emotion nonsense. My life is 10 times harder than that of some guy working at an Amazon warehouse. If I can do it, so can he.

    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be 'cured' against one's will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.” -- C.S. Lewis, "God in the Dock: Essays on Theology (Making of Modern Theology)"

    Great Quote from Caitlin Johnstone: The Democratic party suing WikiLeaks for costing them the election is like an armed robbery convict suing a security camera company for getting him arrested. The emails it published are 100 percent authentic and entirely undisputed, and they consist of nothing other than Democratic party big wigs talking to one another. The documents published by WikiLeaks in 2016 showed an unquestionable violation of the DNC’s Impartiality Clause in the “us vs them” tone of the conversations in the more egregious DNC leaks, the Podesta emails showing that the DNC and the Clinton camp were colluding as early as 2014 to schedule debates and primaries in a way that favored her, and then-DNC Vice Chairwoman Donna Brazile acting as a mole against the Sanders campaign and passing Clinton questions in advance to prep her for debates with Sanders. It also revealed more broadly incriminating facts about the Democratic party in general, including the Clintons taking bribes from Qatar and Morocco and knowingly accepting funds from political bodies that arm ISIS, an email showing how a CitiGroup executive was responsible for selecting Obama’s acceptable cabinet picks, and Clinton’s infamous “public position and a private position” statement. Contrary to what their lawsuit claims, Democrats didn’t lose massively in 2016 because of a secret conspiracy between Russia, WikiLeaks and the Trump campaign to rob them of their rightful place on the throne, they lost massively in 2016 because people found out the truth about what the party is and how it operates. … The Democratic party has proven beyond all doubt that it has no interest in serving the American people and at this point exists only to protect the tiny empires of its leaders. …

    Get this: The DNC's theory of a claim against Wikileaks Press is that its rigging of primaries, rigging of debates, cheating, and lying to voters are "trade secrets". By taking the position the disclosed material are "trade secrets", the DNC is now also finally confirming that the material leaked by Wikileaks is genuine. 987846162924408832 988414622012198913 The DNC's theory should fail as a matter of law for multiple reasons: A) the DNC is not a business; to be a "trade secret" it must be used in business; B) trade secret must have "economic value"; C) fraudulent practices are not practices unknown to the public or competitors;

    So the DNC is upset that Wikileaks exposes its rigging of the primary, rigging of debates, and lying to voters. I guess the DNC thinks it has a right to cheat, rig and lie without any pesky press exposing its fraudulent dirty deeds: " WikiLeaks has hit back against a multimillion-dollar lawsuit filed by the Democratic National Committee (DNC), … seeking donations for a counter-suit, noting "We've never lost a publishing case and discovery is going to be amazing fun," … The DNC suit has drawn criticism from prominent Democrats who would like to restore dignity to the party - such as Claire McCaskill (MO), Jackie Speier (CA) and former Obama White House adviser and CNN commentator David Axelrod … Despite the fact that the DNC's bank account is running on empty, Perez says that the party "can't afford not to" pursue the lawsuit. ..."

    And is not giving SNAP and/or Section 8 to working people an intervention that distorts the labor market? There was a time--I remember it--when full time workers were not eligible for such benefits. There's yet another case of conservatives shooting conservatism in the foot. If people who don't work deserve it, how is it that people who do work don't deserve it? That's just a dog whistle argument for corporate welfare. If a person can work sixty hours a week and have to choose between being homeless and eating, or having shelter and starving, that person is not going to do that job. The only reason these people do these jobs is because the taxpayer is picking up the slack. Which means the taxpayer is enabling the CEO and the stockholders to pocket more. Yes, of course the CEO is going to do that, if the taxpayers are dumb enough to put up with it, and the stockholders won't complain either. There's nothing free market about it. People owing their souls to the company store, people working for a wage which doesn't allow them to meet their basic necessities for survival, does not happen in a free market. It does not happen. People do not work for the right to starve to death. Suggesting such a thing is 'free market' is laughable. The State is intervening in the labor transaction to Amazon's benefit. And Amazon is using political clout to ensure it continues. They are paying politicians with money that should be going to their employees. The labor market is distorted. If the State weren't making it possible for Amazon employees to survive, they would leave the company and find a way to survive. To say that libertarians should defend Amazon because it's an enterprise is laughable. When the corporations are in bed with the politicians, you have fascism, and fascism is no more free market than socialism. And the more libertarians babble about how enterprises are good no matter what--even to the point of winking at obvious distortions of markets and turning a blind eye to fascism--the less people looking for the answers the media obviously isn't giving them will look to libertarians for those answers.

Based on the idea of natural rights, government secures those rights to the individual by strictly negative intervention, making justice costless and easy of access; and beyond that it does not go. The State, on the other hand, both in its genesis and by its primary intention, is purely anti-social. It is not based on the idea of natural rights, but on the idea that the individual has no rights except those that the State may provisionally grant him. It has always made justice costly and difficult of access, and has invariably held itself above justice and common morality whenever it could advantage itself by so doing.
--Albert J. Nock
