  • Barack Obama BLOCKS SUPPORT to Kurds to Fight ISIS

    MarkL to Enlightened1
    It appears to me that Obama has been supporting the most radical muslim extremelists for a very long time. He sabotauged the "arab spring," refusing to support the "green recolution" in Iran, and now doing all his can to make a deal that will guarantee they'll have a nuke in a relatively short time. He supported the muuslim brotherhood every chance he had.

    And worst of all, it seems that he's blocking those who could actually be successful against isis, while actually arming isis, by sending arms to those who immediately drop them and run away.

    There should be an Amendment protecting Religion..oh wait.

    Doesn't matter... John Roberts has ruled that just because it's spelled out in the law, or for that matter, as we'll be seeing shortly, in the Constitution of the United States, words no longer mean anything.

    Words simply mean what our rulers want them to mean.

    Chief Justice of the SCOTUS, Humpty Dumpty has ruled, "When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less."

    ’The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’

    ’The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master — that’s all.”

    Who knew that our SCOUTUS decisions would be written by Lewis Carroll?

    One of the most influential rock bassists ever. I was lucky enough to get a chance to speak with him at an after show meet & greet in 2009, and he was very gracious and kind.

    Of course, everyone knows his work with Yes, but he had a number of side projects as well. In the mid-70s he had a solo album that is amazing, “Fish Out of Water.” While he never did a followup solo album, he had a side band “Conspiricy,” with long time collaborator, Billy Sherwood.

    Chris did get “back to his basics” of choral & choir music, with the Christmas album, “Chris Squire’s Swiss Choir,” the song “Silent Night, Night of Silence” is amazing. That album featured Steve Hackett of Genesis, which eventually led to a wonderful collaboration, “Squokett.”

    An incredible artist, I will greatly miss any new music from him, but am so thankful for his time on earth, and the gift of his music. May The Lord bless and comfort his loved ones, and grant him eternal peace.

    Chris Squire’s Solo works, Hold Out Your Hand / You By My Side (featuring Bill Bruford & Patrick Moraz)

    Finally, Miguel Falcao, the YouTube master of Chris Squire bass covers, sent out requests world wide for fans of Chris during his illness, and thankfully Chris lived long enough to be able to see it.

    MarkL to fso301
    I've always wondered what the breakdown of votes was in Germany during the inter-war period?

    While Europe has had state-sanctioned anti-Semitism for generations, Germany was the birth-place of "Reform Judaism.' Historically, religious Jews rarely assimilated, but Reform Judaism allowed it, and quite frankly Jews hoped that those with anti-semetic views would finally see them as Germans first. This was one of the reasons so many German Jews were slow to realize what was going on with the NAZIs. For the first time, they thought the government would protect them from the anti-semites, since they saw themselves as "good Germans" first, many of whom fought for Germany during WWI.

    They were wrong.

    What I recall from the wave of eliminating manufacturing jobs was that those displaced workers would be retrained in high-tech jobs, like IT workers.

    Now they’re increasing the number of H1-B visas, to help eliminate the jobs of those high tech workers. I wonder what new careers the IT workers at Disney will be re-trained to do... Maybe to wear the Mickey & Minnie costumes in the Disney parks for minimum wage...

    What I want is for the hundreds of displaced Disney IT workers to file lawsuits in federal court against Disney for flat-out BREAKING the law, based on the importation of lower cost workers, using the H1-B visa program.

    The law stipulates that H1-B visas are ONLY to be used when qualified citizens simply aren’t available. The fact that Disney coerced the former employees to train their replacements (otherwise, they would lose all severance, and be terminated on the spot) is evidence that the American employees WERE qualified.

    I also suggest a boycott of Disney, and all their subsidiaries, like ABC.

  • Liberal Claim That Jurassic World Is Sexist Is Hilarious

    06/13/2015 12:40:03 PM PDT · 45 of 45
    MarkL to Perdogg

    I don’t know about sexist, but Jurassic Park movies perfectly illustrate just how liberals think.

    While I think Spielberg is trying to point out capitalistic greed in the stories, here, in the 4th movie, He accidentally reveals that the whole “bring back dinosaurs” thing is a completely liberal idea.

    For instance, if you looks at the basic theme of all (now) 4 movies, it can be broken down to three parts:

    a) Scientists bring back dinosaurs from extinction.
    b) People decide it would be a good thing to go look at said dinosaurs in person.
    c) Mayhem ensues, as people run around in a panic and get eaten.

    Given just a single instance, I think that conservatives (and most people with the tiniest bit of common sense, which rules out liberals) would come to the conclusion that step A might just be a bad idea.

    But not liberals... No, they decide to try step A another two times, expecting a different outcome (JP III doesn’t count, since the dinos were “leftovers” from the first movie. On the other hand, some liberal decides it would be a good idea to go hang gliding on a remote island to see the dinosaurs, up-close & personal. Another nifty liberal idea...)

    A hallmark of liberal thought is that the screwiest ideas are actually good, the problem is that the implementation was wrong, but that the current crop of liberals are the smartest ever, and THEY will make the really bad idea work, no matter how often the same bad results occur.

    MarkL to DoodleDawg

    The law is explicit that to apply for an H1-B visa employee, there must be a case where there are no qualified citizens.

    By definition, if the soon-to-be “former” employees have to train their replacements, then the citizens being replaced MUST BE qualified for the jobs, hence the company is breaking the law.

    I hope that these Disney employees will file a law suit in federal court against Disney for breaking the law, as well as falsifying federal documents.

    I experienced a bit of the fallout of the H1-B abuse while I was looking for a job in 2005. I worked in IT, and was generally acknowledged as being one of the “best” Novell networking people in the city. Not only was I certified on nearly every one of their products, I was certified to teach Novell’s courses on those products.

    So when I was looking for a job, I went to a headhunter and saw that there was an opening for someone who was able to work with all the different products I was certified to teach! I figured it would be a slam dunk.

    Of course the headhunter wouldn’t reveal who their client was, but I later learned that to “comply” with the H1-B laws, they will often come up with ridiculous certification requirements that they’ll publish to “ensure” that they can place a foreign worker, since no citizen would have those skills. So, even though I was certified by the manufacturer to teach all those classes, I did not get the job.

    Years later I learned that the company that received the foreign worker found him completely inadequate, and they were forced to bring in contractors, who convinced management over a few years to convert completely to Microsoft. I learned that the company that had gone to the headhunter was a company where I had originally set up their networks (switching them over from IBM Lan Manager to Novell,) supported their IT department for a number of years, and even trained many of their network admins!

    Had the company known I was available, they would have hired me on the spot, but the headhunter needed to place a foreign worker.

    Remember, dangerous leftists often tell you exactly what they are going to do, while the masses simply ignore it. Mao had his little red book. Hitler had Mein Kampf. Barky had his campaign interviews.

    He promised that he would “fundamentally change” the USA. He’s only been partly successful (so far.)

    He promised a federal, “civilian” police force, as well armed and powerful as the military. I believe that the federal push to destroy public confidence, and sow fear of local and state police forces is a long planned strategy that the Obama regime hopes will begain a “grass root” call for federalizing the policing of communities.

    There’s little doubt that the destruction of the health care system was designed to do the same thing. If the SCOTUS rules that Barky-Kare was specifically written to ONLY allow state exchanges to fund the insurance subsidies (as we all saw Gruber say was the plan all-along), they hope the masses will scream for government run, single payer health care, which Barky had promised in interviews and statements, was his plan all along, just that it would take some time.

    Let’s not forget that this president is particularly petulant and more than willing to cause innocent people to feel pain, in order to force his political ideology on those who resist him. Let’s not forget how his regime put up barriers around open-air monuments in Washington, tried to keep drivers from even looking at Mt Rushmore, and even illegally closed Mount Vernon, which wasn’t a federal properly to begin with!

    Depending on what sort of work you want to have done, there are a number of different options.

    I’m not sure about rifles or shotguns, but for handguns, you might want to check with the American Pistolsmiths Guild. Ron Power and Jim Clark are charter members.

    You might also check with local police departments, and check with local competitive shooters.

    Thought it’s been many years since I’ve dealt with any gunsmiths, I’ve been very lucky to have had work done on some handguns by Ron Power (I had a Grandmaster 629, and have a 625-5), Leonard Baity for work done on a 1911, and Cylinder and Slide. I don’t know if Ron is still doing revolvers, but his S&W and Ruger revolvers are absolutely amazing. Leonard Baity built a 1911 “Pin Gun” for me, maybe 20 years ago, incredibly accurate, and his work was superb. Cylinder & Slide is also quite well known, doing very high quality work, but they were especially well known for Colt Pythons and Browning/FN High Power. Of course, for 1911s, there were Wilson Combat, Ed Brown, and Jim Clark.

    You could also contact American Handgunner magazine, if they’re still in business. I seem to recall that they used to do regular features on gunsmiths. Or maybe Brownells or PowerCustom, as both sell gunsmithing tools.

    Regarding certifications, I knew 2 local guys, both were terrific gunsmiths, both were tool & die makers by trade, but had no “official” training or certifications, though both knew and hung out with Ron Power, and I’m sure they picked up some great hints from him.

    Good luck,

Hitler is attributed to have said that he was emboldened by the lack of response to the Armenian genocide. He, an NAZI Germany were responsible for over 12 million murders. Of course, in sheer brutality, he was a piker, compared to Stalin and Mao. But since they were communists, it's been covered up by the media.

    IMHO, one of the greatest investments one can make before one decides to carry concealed, is to at least one of Mas Ayoob’s books.

Mas has a newer book, and being familiar with him (and having met him once, a long time ago), my guess is the new book is every bit as definitive on the subject, just more up to date. “Deadly Force - Understanding Your Right to Self Defense.”

    Put simply, should I ever be involved in a shooting, in the aftermath, I would do all I could to have Mas involved in my defense as an “expert witness!”

    I've been using their products (mostly computer cables, but also hdmi cables) since 2010, and I've only had 1 problem, just recently. I bought a couple of USB3.0 cables from them for portable hard drives, but the cables just wouldn't provide USB3.0 connectivity using all combinations of 2 different laptops and 2 different drives. On-line chat allowed me to explain the issue (about 10 minutes of telling them what was going on and answering questions,) and the next day I saw the credit posted to my credit card.

    Everytime I hear he's coming on F&F, I immediately go and do something else. He's is so incredibly full of himself, mister big. I really wish someone would hit him in the face with a chair again!

    Not “Nixonian,” but “Clintonian!”

    Clinton was a master of spineless, lawyerly doublespeak & gobbledegook. I was always certain that Hillary was behind all of the most down & dirty exploits of every single Clintonian fraud and lie.

    Bill was the soft face of the evil that is Hillary.

    Thank you Eric Holder & BHO.

    Has anyone else noticed that the two of them seem to be doing all they can to bring Charles Manson’s vision to fruition? “Helter Skeltor.” Bring about race riots, in order to overthrow the government. Their own version of the French Revolution, NOT the American Revolution.

    It would probably be a real pita to clean the rifle, but I love the smell of smokeless powder, and I can only imagine how wonderful that smell would be!

    I’m really hoping they block her, but I’m sure that they’ll cave to the fear of being both racist & sexist if they don’t approve her.

    She’s a big fan of “civil forfeiture,” ruled legal by the SCOTUS, a decision on par with Kelo & Dred Scott.

    It’s an abomination of the law and constitution!
