    Not sure about the rest of the rebel states, but Missouri indeed requires birth certificate, SSN and current utility address ( for normal citizens) and naturalization records for immigrants, so indeed we do meet the strictest ID requirements, the rub is, however, that MO will not copy and forward these documents to the fedgov as part of REAL ID.

    The fedgov already gets tax records, employment details, investment and banking data so it is not hard to realize the fedgov is databasing all this information for something- not sure what....

    Since I no longer fly, I suppose it is a moot issue- however, a MO DL will not get you onto a federal installation- so visitors to such places may be in for a surprise unless they have a passport or some other “good” gov id form.

    Maybe Trump will undo this charade.

    No dictate from our administration can nullify the constitution. The people formed the government and the people tolerate it as long it as serves the peoples purpose.

    If our administration and or congress declares any sort of martial law and suspends the rule of law evolved from the constitution it is null and void itself and as another stated, we devolve back to a state of nature at least at the federal level.

    Our military leaders need to grow a pair and grow up- we nor the world needs a conflict with Russia or any other major power, even if we would could and should win it.

    Think about the oath of office for all US elected and appointed officials and military personnel; not one of us swore loyalty to any government- rather we solely swore to defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.....

    If by some use of force or politics, our government declared the constitution suspended so would any authority of any officer of the US as there would be no authority given by the posse comitatus ( the power of the country), namely the people to do anything lawfully.

  • Debate: Trump did well, despite a big obstacle

    09/27/2016 5:31:14 AM PDT · 29 of 33
    Manly Warrior to detective

    Clinton is an experienced political insider who has 30 + years of doing this. She has a large compendium of knowledge, uses lingo familiar to diplomats and speaks in improbable specifics regarding “plans” to do everything. She used all of those assets quite well; as we expected.

    Trump simply is not a politician, he spoke like a man who has recognized the problem and it exactly what Hillary represented. Category after category, social issues, foreign affairs, security healthcare and on and on, he sees how the combined talents of Hillary et al have run the US citizen , black, white, rich poor, male female down the road to towering national debt, poor investment in infrastructure, increasing government, both in terms of influence and size and cost and damaging policies towards most segments of the population.

    He points out the problem and it is business of the “uni-party” system as usual- passing laws that line the pockets of the system while ding little, nothing or even less than nothing in many instances. He specifically stated that with all that acumen and experience, she and those like her ( career politicians) have driven the US to its fiscal, military social and cultural knees, with the only answer from the establishment being to push it to it’s belly.

    Again, I see this perspective as a non-Trump fan. I see this phenomenon as a direct result of the process- 16 candidates calling themselves Republicans offered the public simply the slightly “reddish” version of the deep blue Hillary, and the voting public spewed them all out of their collective mouths and decided to take a sip of fresh water.

    My concern, as I think it should be our collective concern, is that neither Donald nor Hillary can accomplish much ( nor should they try it alone, like king Obama has declared) without a congress that changes the laws of the nation- deregulates business where it makes sense, frees up businesses to spend money it makes here or overseas and encourages companies. both indigenous and foreign, to invest in plants, personnel and operations here rather than in those countries where they find cheap labor and costs due to unfair trade practices.

    Trumps stated that those deals were not equitable nor in the best interest of the US worker or company and I agree.

    Clinton presented an articulate, superficial and political voice, Trump show his frustration over how his nation has sold itself down the river to 3rd world benefactors for no reason other than bad politics and self serving treaties.

    Who won? Depends on whether you want a globalist mentality to continue the trundle left and down or an “it’s about our nation too” mentality that espouses sound policy decisions that would make equitable and beneficial outcomes not just for those we bend over for.....

    I firmly believe that the past two elections showed the American voter just how similar the two parties are in terms of these issues and where both parties would have led us, regardless of who won the election.

    The battle is for a congress that enforces legislation, holds itself and the administration and courts to the rule of law and becomes the activist entity is it designed to be.

    We don’t need no stinking king nor Jester.

    “I point my pistol at people all the time because they pop up out of nowhere and approach me.”

    If I acted like that, I’d be in orison. Glad I avoid cops. God Bless ‘em.

    “Sometimes they are suspects, sometimes they are good people and there has been a misunderstanding. After I point my gun at them, some of them get scared and freeze. I ask them to show me their hands and they do so. Then I ask them what they are doing. They are usually horrified. They usually explain that they didn’t mean to run up on me like that and then they explain their problem. If their problem makes sense, I would lower my gun and I would assist them. I might check them for weapons. I would immediately explain to them why I pointed my weapon at them and apologize for frightening them. Sometimes when that happens, the person responds with anger. They may curse me out and accuse me of being a rogue cop or something. In an angry manner, they explain why they ran up to me and explain their problem. If their story sounds logical, I would make sure they didn’t have any weapons on them, explain to them how the situation appeared from my perspective and we would move forward. Both of those responses are normal.”

    Again, that’s why I avoid cops, actually, most people in fact. God Bless ‘em.

    I was underwater a few times when I fired my 40 cal, I wore ear plugs first, then took them out- the water seemed to absorb the blast way more effectively than any suppressor I ever used. In the air, it seems like the blast is a whole lot of gas- under water- a medium sized balloons’ worth of a bubble- Discharging 34k psi of powder gas under more than atmospheric pressure attenuates it quite well.

    The tube they show has holes along its length- a suppressor as we know it, it is not!

    Manly Warrior to marktwain

    Ammo, even that which is not waterproofed to milspec standards is rather , well, water proof.

    I carry almost always, even canoeing and wade fishing- my carry ammo is not fancy, just plain JHP fodder, and I rotate it out into a “range box” after immersion. That ammo, about 200 rounds annually, has never failed to go bang.

    I even did a test- river water and 50 rounds of ammo for varying periods of time- some in the sun, some ambient. None of it failed to fire and function perfectly.

    As a mil type, I carried ammo immersed in swaps and torrential rain all in central and S America, never failed to fire.

    Unless this ammo was immersed for months, it is useful as range ammo unless the firer is an idiot, probably not as carry ammo though.

    Like I said, send it to me, I’ll dispose of it properly!

    Yes, wind power contributes to the net energy grid. However, in order to get that 10% you mention, the wind farm is over built by probably 80% capacity. Meaning if one turbine could produce that 10%, they built 8, since wind is so variable. So, for the price of 8 you the net effect of one. Hmmm. Someone is making a killing at consumer’s expense.

    Also, if that wind power concern is contracted to the power supplier for that 10% worth of megawatts, they also likely have an equivalent onsite or near site NG or diesel generator unit- else they charged for the net loss they are causing.....

    186k miles per sec equates to something like 3.612 x 10 to the 12th miles away- 3,612,000,000,000 miles- yeah 3.6 trillion.

    At a “leisurely” 100k mph (out of reach so far) that would be only 3.612 x 10 to the 7th- 36,120,000 years to get there- yeah 36 million years.....

    At a million miles per hour ( play star trek theme song now) that would be 36 years......

    My thoughts?

    A jury of peers convicted and sentenced such criminals; all power resides with the citizen, therefore no executive, state or federal should be able to over-ride the effective will and judgement of the people- that is what appellate and supreme courts are for- in the case of error, due process violation or otherwise unjust prosecution.

    We do not have a king ( divine rights etc), nor do our executives hold any higher power than the people via the courts and due process.

    I am clearly convinced that money, influence and power make these commutation, pardons and other extra-judicial acts fully perverted and done only for ulterior motive ( well, maybe a few little fish are included to give the appearance of altruistic action).

    Several years after Gore’s movie, I watched it. My take-away was sinply this- he was not wel connected to the capitalistic system producing oil/NG and coal energy products/infrastructure, so his intention was to simply help change the paradigm of reliance on petro fuels and ove towards an ew industrial base - one that required significant leverage of the existing manufacturing/resource base to move to another -making products that cost more, are less reliable and produce much less output than the input required or gained form employing them in the market place. Wind, solar and bio sources/machines to produce energy.

    He was simpy getting in the ground floor of his idea of a paradigm that required oil as both resource and energy to produce less efficient more costly machines and power supplies-

    Indeed, he was a capitalists’ capitalist with a twist, using the government (aka social justice/environment etc) to obtain the money (other people’s money of course) to become a major/broker owner in the new industry. Commodities like electricity, industry like solar and wind machinery, bio fuel development and use. He was/is just being a businessman, unlike most, has the hand of government to feed his investment portfolio.

    It never was about inexpensive,efficient use or generation of power, just about investment sponsored/dictated by a “save the whales/environment” government gone awry.

    Here in MO, citizens or legal aliens can obtain a DL, and we have to present citizenship documentation the first time around. Of course, legal aliens can obtain DLs too, but they must also present their credentials.

    I renewed my DL the other day, the clerk asked me if I was registered to vote, I said yes. I asked if she asked only US citizens that question and she answered “yes, the screen showed me that you were born in NY and presented a BC in 2003 when you obtained you original MO DL. Unless the screen shows US citizenship, we don’t ask.”

    If you think it vengeance and unlawful, well, I can appreciate that too, however, I dismiss that line of thought as the public good and safety remained at stake. Just when would lethal force be legitimate in this situation, when he took out one or more add’l people? They contained him, they let him know they were not going away, he had a choice. I truly doubt he would have been murdered if he had informed the deputies he was giving up.... He died in a hole resisting the lawful authority we give LEOs. Part of the social compact.

    Okay, everybody, step back and take a breath- the sheriff stated it clearly- “if you pull a gun on us, you can expect to be shot-” Meets all the requirements of a lethal force response. You’d do or at least attempt the same if you were confronted by an armed thug - so get over the LEs right to self-defense. Unlike you they go looking for the thug on our behalf. While the lethal force equation is the same for both LE and citizen, the probability of an LEO needing to face such an equation is much higher.

    I would that all Chief LEOs would communicate to their public the same message.

    Now, on the other hand, in anything other than the above equation, all LEO had better do right all the time, or they will be on the other side of the equation. Tough job, so either do it right or flip burgers somewhere safe.

    Still very bad advice. If you purchase a brand new knife, open it with gloves on, then bag it in a new zip lock for just such occasions, then, with gloves on carefully drop it on the floor next to the bad guy, carefully wipe his fingers across it etc- think again. What do you do with the gloves ( with the perps DNA/blood etc) and baggie? Evidence. Anything will be contaminated with pocket fuzz, food residue, have knicks or burrs, so signs f resharpening handle wear etc. All of these characteristics will be significant to the owner- IOW, pocket fuzz from HIS jeans, food residue matching his counter top etc. Don’t even think about a drop anything. Just do it right from the start- the perp will with the evidence he leaves on his own accord, hang himself forensically.

    Very bad advice.

    Not only do you mess with the crime scene, you deliberately plant false evidence to try to make the guilty appear more so, you place a knife that can easily be traced back to your kitchen in the hands of someone who by your story could not have obtained it as you describe. Once the CSI determines that you manipulated the scene, they begin scrutinizing it even more closely, to find any other evidence of an unreasonable shoot.

    Your comment was fine up to the point you instruct folks to commit felonies after the fact. Shame.

    Better scenario- direct the attmetping intruders to leave, tell them the cops ar eon the way, stay on the line or leave it open if you can’t. Seek a covered location, defned yourself if need be and do not ever mess with the evidence or disturb the crime scene other than to attempt to render aid if the situation appears to be secured.

    Then tell the cops that you were in fear for your life and that of your family and that you will give them a full statement after you have your attorney present. Then shut up and say nothing more related to the incident. Detectives/”CSI” will determine the exact chronology and obvious facts about the whole thing. Your story will back it up once your attorney advises you.

    Please contract with a professional firearms and self defense instructor. Carrying a properly holstered safe action type or modern DA/DAO handgun with a round chambered is very safe- holster and finger add two more layers of safety to the internals. Trust me, a modern handgun won’t fire by itself.

    As previously mentioned, actuating the slide to chamber a round under stress becomes a major bottleneck in the self defense paradigm. I believe you owe it to yourself and those you carry for to be fully prepared and ready to defend yourself w/o fear of the gun. You are the weapon, the gun is only a tool to make it work well.

    Great that you carry and are thinking.

    As a classical liberal myself, I find radical libertarianism a troubling ideology- do all the drugs you want, do whatever you want to be happy, but where is the self control aspect? I have offered the following reply to several libertarian friends- do mind bending drugs all you want, but make it lawful for me to stick a 22 bullet in your brain after you harm me or mine on the highway or at work or whatever- the civil compact requires equal footing for behavior- “your right to throw a punch ends at my nose”.

    The left, the modern liberal (leftist) and the radical libertarian, both often confuse individual liberty for absolvement of responsibility with in the civil compact-both are anathema to real liberty.

    AFA illegal drugs- it is a supply and demand equation- reduce the demand 9 social responsibility/moral living or reduce the supply ( WOD). If the negative behavior modification threat of prison, felony record or unemployment do not thwart the demand, then the supply is left to be dealt with.

    Jesus Christ is the only real solution. Only true freedom is in Him and his free gift of salvation and zoe life- abundant and free! Alas, even Christ told us we will always have our poor ( in spirit) as well in worldly wealth.

    A sports team can never win by only playing defense- they to score at least one goal.

    The best defense for a family is more than one being a lawfully armed and decently trained force.

    My wife and I know the deal. As an experienced combat veteran, my job is the mobility task, hers, if with the grand kids, is a defensive perimeter seeking to egress, if alone, we attempt to egress; situationally aware and circumstance dependent.

    Everyone know in football,soccer or any other game, the best way to protect your goal is to make the opposing team protect theirs.

    Since we are both Believers’ in the Lord Jesus as our Savior, if we both fail, we meet again, If one fails and the other survives, we meet again. We win either way? What’s in your wallet?

  • Defending against terroristic mass murder

    To put this subject into proper perspective, one must consider that bad things can and do happen to good people. That is why we carry health, life home and business insurance. Anyone who does not is considered a foolish person, or even is acting unlawfully ( in the case of some insurance requirement-like auto, home if mortgaged etc).
    Since our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is the penultimate right we all possess from the hand of our Creator, we must then consider how to insure that-when there is no practical insurance plan extant.

    Some say, “well, that is why we have government- to secure our rights- and police/law enforcement courts and due process provide all that is necessary”. Bah, silliness. All of that is needful, necessary and appropriate after the fact. Granted, in this context, police can and are fully willing to stop the terror that stalks us, however, unless one is singularly wealthy and able, armed body guards or police protective details are not a reasonable solution. “I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy”.

    Hence, we have the natural right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness- and that entails personal responsibility. How do we positively secure this right? We personally participate in the social compact- exercising our right to vote, to work, to seek opportunity and to arm ourselves with whatever lawful tools are available and use them again, within that social compact.

    When one threatens another with unlawful force, we are entitled, no, expected to resist that unlawful force to preserve our rights and most certainly our life. We, as the old natural rights authors declare, cannot forfeit our life without the loss of all rights.

    So, since we (most of us)cannot reasonable carry a cop, or a protective detail, we carry a tool, an insurance policy, if you will, that a wise and prudent man will employ only as a last resort- one would “go to court’ only after personal redress of a grievance failed, so it is with the use of arms- “go to court” so to speak, when the means of protecting that which is most vital to our natural right of survival is put at unlawful risk.

    I carry a firearm, not because I am afraid, but because I am not.

    I accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior in 1979. Since then, I have given lots of help to strangers, been in several conflicts and some civil scrapes, have never had a need greater than either resources at hand or abilities to overcome- My Lord makes my cup runeth over. I certainly do not deserve it, but He loves me so!

    Pray tell us why? Has Obama’s administration promised to not persecute his enemies? IRS, EPA, DHS, HUD, D Ed? Huh ? Huh?

    Grow up Billy boy.

    No, guys, we do not stoop to their level. If found on a battlefield, we kill them efficiently, if caught, we do right. We give them a mil tribunal, we try them on evidence, even if that only means we try them on bearing arms against lawful combatants, then we kill them via firing squad, preferably, on the ground we catch them.

    If caught via LE operations, we give them whatever the equivalent to a fair trail may be, then we execute a fair sentence based on the rule of law.

    We are not like them. At all.

    Are you for real regarding the killing of Johnson by police in contact? If he had said “uncle” and the still shot/knifed/blew up or drowned him, then I get your meaning. Not before; he was a lethal threat to anyone who appears in his line of fire. Sorry, THAT IS due process in this case and any like it.

    556 what bullet? A 45 grain varmint bullet will perform decidedly different than a 75 BTHP or a Hornady 55grn GMX copper bullet...
