    That it 100% tangential to the point that I'm making. I'm talking about the speech that was given at the freaking RNC. And, technically Biden got big oil to turn up the tap making 2023 the record year for U.S. oil production ever. (A fact Biden doesn't talk about much because it goes against his whole "carbon footprint" argument). But I get it. Marxist language doesn't matter anymore as long as its said in support of the guy some of us are supporting at the moment.

    I 100% disagree with "Rand is just a bad campaigner" argument. You don't get re-elected to the U.S. Senate if you can't connect with average voters. It's not like congress where you just have to win a district. Rand lost in 2016 to Trump because the Republican electorate was angry and Trump was the best at playing off that anger. There is nobody better than Trump at anger politics. If you watch the UFC, Jon Jones made former UFC champion Daniel Cormier look like he didn't even belong in the ring and DC was literally crying at the end of the fight. That doesn't mean he couldn't fight. No matter what happens this year, Donald Trump will not be running in 2028. (Thank God!) Can Rand Paul hold his own with the average GOP voter against a Nikki Haley or a Ron DeSantis? I think so. But that's the only fair metric to look at. Throw the 2016 presidential campaign into the garbage bin of history where it belongs. It's got no bearing on anything that happens going forward.

    Long video but great information. I wonder if anyone will pay attention? TLDR; JD Vance is connected to Peter Thiel who is behind the CIA funded Palantir "pre crime" software which the deep state uses to decide who is on the terror watch list.

    Make sure you post your donation against Rand so I can counter balance it with a donation for him. He and Massie were the lone voices of reason during the COVID scamdemic. And term limiting your own best senators and congressmen when the other side isn't doing that serves absolutely no purpose. Ron Paul probably wasn't invited. I'm sure he could have been in the crowd but so freaking what? Massie did a good job moderating the alternative presidential debate. As far as 2028 is concerned, who knows what America will look like by then? The economy stands a good chance of imploding regardless of what the next president, Trump or Biden, does. If Trump is at the helm a Republican won't win again for a generation. If Biden is at the helm they'll just blame his dementia and the dems will recover after a couple of cycles.

    Invisible Man and RJB's race pivot aside, I didn't see a response to Matt's actual point. The head of the Teamster's union didn't say "Let's help the working man by doing away with the income tax." He didn't say "Let's help the working man by cutting property taxes." He didn't say 'Let's help the working man by protecting his right to natural gas stoves." He said "Let's help the working man....by new labor laws." Ummmm....okay. If he had said those same words at the DNC convention some of the same people praising this "outreach to working people" would be crying foul. So.....what exactly are the principles you're fighting for? I am sure Jimmy Dore (personally avowed socialist) loved the Teamsters boss's speech. He's been very bullish on Trump recently while still pushing for "Medicare For All." I love Jimmy Dore for his straight up honesty while at the same time disagreeing with his socialist positions. But okay. Socialism per se is no longer verboten. Got it.

    In this case the vice was already illegal. It's just become difficult to enforce due to technological changes and social trends. When I was a child, requiring the porno mags at the grocery store to be shrink wrapped would not have been expensive and the only "liberty" that would have impinged on is the liberty of an adult to "look before you buy." When I was old enough to go to an adult bookstore I was disappointed to find most of the magazines were shrink wrapped not to protect children (they couldn't come in anyway) but to protect profits which means the grocery stores could have done that all along and perhaps made more money. Requiring phones to have easy to set up parental controls wouldn't be expensive. For the life of me I don't know why this already isn't a thing. Then again if it's profit uber alles, Google might not want parents blocking apps from their kids. Remember the V-chip? Did you know that's still a thing? But it's pretty irrelevant because who still watches network television? Certainly not young people. And phones have made parental controls on TVs pretty much irrelevant.

    I agree. Of course one can use a VPN to make their computer look like you're surfing from Thailand if you want. But that's extra step the average 12 year old would have to jump through. From a free market perspective this is probably the only phone parents should get their kids. https://www.thelightphone.com/lightii Anti Federalist this might be an acceptable solution for a parent that doesn't want his child sucked into the matrix but would still like him or her to have a phone for emergencies.

I think Peter Thiel with his CIA funded Palantir data mining software is at least as great of a threat to freedom as anything Bill Gates is doing. And yes I know Peter donated to Ron Paul in 2012.

    As a dad who had to co-parent after a divorce I can see the utility of minors having cell phones but I believe they should be "dumb" flip phones. It's good to have multiple ways to reach your kids to find out that the soccer game has been cancelled or moved to a different field or whatever. Also, on a whim, I tried to find the "parental controls" on my Motorola Android phone and found out their weren't any. There are "mindfulness" controls where I can set how long to be on any app before getting a warning but that's it. Ideally everything would happen without government intervention. Parents should know that giving their kids puberty blockers and/or cross sex hormones is a bad idea. But we've got some parents who are just stupid and other parents who are bullied by the "Do you want a live son or dead daughter" blackmail from unscrupulous medical professionals. I don't have all of the answers, just a lot of questions.

    The only "anti Libertarian" position that JD Vance took in the OP was being against children having access to porn...which is already illegal in all 50 states but people have given up on enforcing it because of the Internet. While I'm not sure it's possible to put that genie back in the bottle, I can sympathize with his position from an ideal perspective. I'm trying to find the Usha Vance / Bill Gates connection and so far I'm coming up empty. This is what I've found on her so far. https://www.reuters.com/world/india/indian-family-usha-vance-wife-trumps-vp-pick-known-academic-prowess-2024-07-18/ Usha Vance was a law clerk to U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts and later became an attorney at U.S. law firm Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP. She resigned after J.D. Vance was named as the Republican vice presidential candidate.

    So.....your analysis does not begin to approach the point Mr. Vance was making right or wrong. He's not talking about young adult access to porn. He's talking about adolescent (or earlier) porn! Specifically: I have been blown away by some of the research I've seen in the past year on how pornography warps young adolescent minds. We know that young adults are marrying less. They're having fewer children. They're engaging in healthy and productive relationships less and less. And we know that at least one of the causes of this is that we have allowed pornography, under the guise of libertarianism, to seep into our youngest minds through the channels of the Internet. Again, we made a political choice that the freedom to consume pornography was more important than public goods like marriage and family and happiness. We can't ignore the fact that we made that choice, and we shouldn't shy away from the fact that we can make new choices in the future. Boys (and girls in some cases) 12 years old and younger are not watching porn because they can't get married. They're watching porn because they are curious about sex and boys specifically are visually aroused by it. Some studies show that most American children have seen porn by age 12. (See: https://www.wlbt.com/2023/01/10/most-children-exposed-porn-by-age-12-study-says/) And porn is the crack of sex. It's cheap (free now) and easy to come by and leaves you to crash. I'm guessing I was 8 or younger when I first looked at porn. There was no access to the internet in 1976, but there were Playboy, Penthouse, Hustler and other magazines at the top shelf of magazine racks at some grocery and convenience stores. And yes, it did have a deleterious effect on my marriage. While it's not the only reason I'm divorced, it's a "but for" reason. Eventually local laws started requiring pornographic magazines to be shrink wrapped if they were displayed in stores that minors could enter. But not to long after that the Internet became fast enough to at first download pictures and then short videos and now to real time stream full length videos. Like the 3D printer has made gun control irrelevant, the internet has made porn control for children largely irrelevant. But it doesn't have to be that way. I thought about this when Elon Musk attacked a former Twitter executive for his academic paper about underage users on apps like Tinder and Grindr. The initial paper (yes I looked it up and breezed through it) was about content moderation on dating sites. But the same executive is now working to keep minors off of the dating sites that he's head of trust and safety of. I'm not sure what steps he's taking, but I know when I worked as an Uber driver I had to use my camera to match my face to my driver's license before driving for safety reasons. (That could kill catfishing on dating sites). About 1/3rd of states now require porn sites to take active steps to keep children off of their websites. Will this make a dent? I don't know. When the classifieds ad site Backpage got shut down for facilitating prostitution, like a hydra multiple other escort sites shot up, almost all registered overseas. But this may be different in that the states aren't trying to shut down the porn sites altogether, but just get them to limit it to kids. The big sites will either comply, or block access to certain jurisdictions until the "keep the kids out" laws become so prevalent that they're forced to comply.

    I posted this earlier, but it'd be interesting to read pre- and post-analyses of previous rallies to see if these kinds of gaps are frequent. In many industries in which I've worked, we did this with safety briefings and follow-ups, even if the job was performed without incident. I'm almost 100% sure the Secret Service would do the same. If it turns out that these security snafus happen all over the place, then it raises the potential for a nerdy kid to bumble his way through them. But seriously, I've seen concert security tighter than this.

  8. Sorry, but you have failed. That verse does not contain the words "Grace is irresistible." You can interpret it that way, but that's not what the verse says. You had to admit there was "relational language" in the Bible. Yet you have stuck to your guns that there isn't a verse that says "Have a relationship with Jesus." Likewise there is no verse that says "Grace is irresistible." If you were honest you would simply admit that. But you aren't honest.
