    Move the bitcoin mining operation off premises. Then you can also segregate the business expenses and get better rates and deductions, not to mention the risk of a SWAT team unintended invitation.

    Bitcoin is a worthy endeavor long term, but that also might cause an invasion some day.

  • Has Rush Limbaugh Finally Reached the End Of The Road?

    Wildbill22 to Arthur McGowan

    “I hardly listen to Rush anymore, but it’s because I don’t feel I’m learning anything. In 1988, Rush was reading the news from all over, and it was impossible for most listeners to get most of it anywhere else. Rush has been overtaken by the internet. For many years, anyone who followed FR and some other websites would learn little or nothing by listening to Rush.

    And Rush, Levin, Hannity, and most other radio hosts refuse to deal with what everyone in Washington knows: that Obama/Soetoro is almost certainly an illegal alien. And that his “birth certificate” is absolutely certainly a crude forgery.

    They all offer the excuse: “We will never get him out of office with that stuff.”

    How about this?-—Broadcast the truth, and the evidence, and let the chips fall where they may.

    There are some “conservative” radio hosts who are themselves part of the dinosaur media, and are being overtaken by others for the same reason that the Washington Compost and the New York Slimes are dying.”

    I think a lot of people feel the same. Claims of being just one of those fringe “Birthers” has shut up people on the subject, as was the intention of the left, and that is cowardice on the part of the right IMHO. The evidence is not easily discounted without the stigma from the propaganda experts on the left.

    In regards to voter fraud, I see some simple solutions that other countries seem to use;

    1). Vote then finger in ink to mark that person as voted. Don’t allow people to vote with ink on their finger.

    2). Require ID. Heck you can’t go out into public as an adult without ID, the only purpose for justifying not having it is for dishonest purposes, and make those ID s more tamper proof.

    3). Absentee ballots eliminated when someone shows up at the polls to vote. This isn’t that big a problem to resolve.

    I’m glad you think so, and am interested in your sources.

    I read the book “One Second After” which was based on a US Naval College study on exactly this, in the book it was about 4 weapons over the US, and it was pretty “Thunderdome”. I think the ending number of living survivors after one year was under 10%.

    ‘”Well bless their hearts... Poor babies”
    Remember, many of these women used their youthful good looks and sexuality to make your life miserable.’

    Someone once said, “ Everything is about sex, except sex. Sex is about power”.

    Some personal observations; Women lose their sexuality with age, as men do, but men are not dependent on sex for power. Some women don’t use sex for power, and they are called “conservative”, and their power usually increases with age.

    Then add the irony how so many conservative women stay so beautiful in their old age. And liberal older women? Ugh!! God does have a sense of humor, doesn’t he? (Or she?)

    Wildbill22 to Impala64ssa

    I have always thought liberals suffer from “projection” , and this is another example.
    You see, what this crazy person with his “I’ll shoot you” comment didn’t consciously know it but really means is that HE should not have access to a gun, and I might agree.

    I think many, maybe all liberals who are the most anti-gun are of the emotionally uncontrolled type that even THEY subconsciously know they shouldn’t ever be armed. They are too emotional and unstable, and I have liberal relatives who I think would be dangerous with a gun, and I think their fear of guns is partially based on their being unable to trust themselves with that kind of responsibility.
    -and I say this as a very pro second amendment supporter.

    And if you look at the predominance of mass shooters being liberal this seems to make a lot of sense to me.

    So maybe gun control, even strict gun control is appropriate, in regards to liberals, but liberals only.

    “This time we need to let the rest of the world fight its own cold war. We did the heavy work on the last one and we don’t owe the world a thing. Put our defense money into strategic defense, downsize our army and foreign deployments and see to our own hemisphere.”

    Putin is nothing new really. He represents exactly the same Russia/Soviet Union that we have been dealing with for a long time now.

    What IS new is Obama. He is not willing to fight. He thinks appeasement is worth any cost, and somehow we have “progressed” beyond war and conflict, however I think he is having a reality check with the realities of military power, and the true nature of the world in current events.

    Unless the leader of the United States is absolute in resolve to defend our country, then people like Putin will take what they can. And that means we have to absolutely know in our hearts that we would risk it all, and that means risking thermonuclear war, to defend our territory. So maybe nuclear weapons are not so unnecessary as Obama thought? And maybe we should look at our deterrent force, and the treaties we sign with Russia in a more realistic light? And what of the other new NATO countries who we have promised to defend in treaty? We promised thermonuclear war to defend them as well, and -when- Putin’s tanks roll over them our word and treaty will be worthless, and we will have no allies.

    Is Obama listening to the lessons of history and today’s reality? If not then YES, it is plausible that we could lose Alaska, and a lot more.

    Wildbill22 to servo1969

    Ok, in all due respect to the retired 777 captain, I have some problems with a lot of what he said.

    -At 30,000 feet you have about 15 seconds of useful consciousness, much less if a smoker or out of shape, or ill or old.

    -An average oxygen generator that fuels the passenger masks only will last about 10 to 12 minutes. 20 minutes above 25,000 is fantasy. That just won’t happen.

    -Even with the O2 generator passenger oxygen, they would have little time of useful consciousness. They are there more to keep you alive in a rapid descent after a decompression at altitude.

    The simple fact is that at those altitudes there is simply just not enough atmospheric pressure, even at 100 percent oxygen levels, to feed enough oxygen from your lungs to your bloodstream, to keep you from experiencing extreme hypoxia. That is why the pilots O2 is different from the passengers, and feeds O2 through a mask that is held firmly to seal the mouth and nose with positive pressure 100 percent oxygen. The loose mask with the bag is more to just keep people alive in the descent. And not for long.

    Wildbill22 to PotatoHeadMick

    The “dual key” was with NATO tactical nukes, not strategic.

    Great Britain has about 160 on its ballistic missile boats, France has a couple dozen more with some air delivered ones as well. Israel, no clear public numbers, but thought to be in the dozens or low hundreds, and shorter ranged.

    Both the US and Russia have around 1500-2000 strategic weapons ready to launch, with the US having maybe slightly more, but Russia has a strong advantage in tactical nuclear weapons numbers.

    In any case, in the US or Russia, try to name 100 main cities, ports and major airbases. Add some redundancy and just a few hundred weapons can eliminate either nation as a major military power. The remaining overkill is to address the unknown and make it as difficult as possible to accomplish a first strike.

    We shouldn’t eliminate any more of our deterrent, but what we do have is substantial.

    Slow down there. I am a friend, and the DU turns my stomach.

    Troll? You misread me.
    No I was serious. Many Russians have, including Vladimir Zhirinovsky, claimed Alaska was only “leased” for 99 years, or not legally bought when the US acquired it from Russia. Putin wants the USSR territories back, but he also longs for those great expansionist years of soviet past.

    I may sound a little out there, but my statement was sincere. And if ever there were an opportunity for Russia to get Alaska back, it would be now with someone as weak as Obama in power, and they would then control two thirds plus of the arctic along with all its resources.
    I have no doubt Russia has plans on expanding its base network. And I personally fear any treaty with them, given the Soviets never failed to break them. Especially when it involves reducing our nuclear deterrent in any way.

    Obama is starting to experience the reality of this world is that there is no substitute for raw military power. I don’t put much faith in him learning the lessons of that though.

    Are we really at the point of international relations between major powers being reduced to name calling? Is that REALLY all this administration is capable of because if it is we may end up in a nuclear war.

    Hillary’s “Reset/Overload” button just may be the eventual launching of nukes out of our administration’s sheer incompetence and stupidity as is ever more evident as every day passes.

    I mean, it would not be good to be in a position of nuclear inferiority with the Russians, because if they were still the evil empire Reagan stated they were they might become adventurous and try to expand their borders or perhaps try to re-establish the borders of the USSR, or dominate the Arctic or something...

    ““Sensible” gun law demands over the years...

    And to think, in 1962 Thomas J Dodd and Emaual Cellar proposed the first federal law on common firearms.

    1962; “We don’t want to take away your guns, we ONLY want to register handguns! Rifles and shotguns will not be affected”.

    1964: “We only want to register all your guns, not ban them! Only Army surplus guns will be banned.”

    1968: “We only want to register your guns, and ban “Saturday Night Specials” and small foreign handguns along with army surplus rifles!” (They got the ban on 5 shot army surplus rifles and handguns and small foreign pistols)

    1970: “We only want to ban Saturday night specials! Large handguns and rifles will not be affected!”

    1976: “We only want to ban all handguns! Long guns will not be affected!”

    1981: “The NRA is a rifle organization! They should give up their handguns, and they can keep their rifles!”- Lee Grant on GMA

    1984: “We must ban “assault Rifles, unsuitable or hunting!”

    1989: George Bush bans import of some foreign made “assault rifles”.

    1992: Assault rifle ban passed by Clinton.

    2000: first calls to ban single shot .50 cal rifles...

    More.......

    Nelson T. ‘Pete’ Shields
    Founder of Handgun Control, Inc.

    “I’m convinced that we have to have federal legislation to build on. We’re going to have to take one step at a time, and the first step is necessarily — given the political realities — going to be very modest.

    Of course, it’s true that politicians will then go home and say, ‘This is a great law. The problem is solved.’ And it’s also true that such statements will tend to defuse the gun-control issue for a time.

    So then we’ll have to strengthen that law, and then again to strengthen that law, and maybe again and again. Right now, though, we’d be satisfied not with half a loaf but with a slice. Our ultimate goal — total control of handguns in the United States — is going to take time.

    My estimate is from seven to ten years. The problem is to slow down the increasing number of handguns sold in this country. The second problem is to get them all registered. And the final problem is to make the possession of all handguns and all handgun ammunition — except for the military, policemen, licensed security guards, licensed sporting clubs, and licensed gun collectors — totally illegal.”

    -Pete Shields, Chairman and founder, Handgun Control Inc., “A Reporter At Large: Handguns,” The New Yorker, July 26, 1976, 57-58

    The Brady Center (former HCI) now has the hots to ban anything they can, including common rifles and shotguns.”

    It would provide an opportunity to get across the fact that the Constititution doesn’t guarantee actual happiness, but the opportunity to make it happen.”

    I agree with all in this post.

    I think it would get people to question what is happiness, what has government done to promote it, in the attempt to grant it, but has failed over and over again. For example, security isn’t happiness; Security as a product government attempts to produce, is a false answer to fear, and displaces responsibility for addressing the fear onto government. At a huge cost.

    Who is best in the position to make us as individuals happy, and how best to enable individuals to take responsibility for their own happiness, and how government attempts fail in that end goal. Indeed, happiness ties into individual rights and the required responsibility the left tells us we don’t need.

    LONG article, but interesting.

    Happiness is something the left requires we sacrifice for the collective. Just a little at first to avail the unfortunate.

    And from a historical viewpoint, the more power the leftist gets, the more that is required to sacrifice, until Josef Stalin is sacrificing all happiness in the name of the people.
    “The New Soviet Man” was to be the perfect communist, sacrificing all self interest in the name of the collective, a truly miserable existence.

    A great analogy of the left I read on FR is in the example of The Borg in Star Trek. Half humans, half machines, only interested in the collective, and can never think outside of the box...

    We re-elected a presidential failure of epic proportions, so this may be a lesson we have to relearn over and over again.
