  • Valdosta State Student Who Stomped US Flag Wants To Kill All White People

    I still think it would be most entertaining to lay hands on flags that leftists radicals like, and desecrate them in front of the leftists, just to watch them have a hissy fit.

    Flags such as ISIS, the Black Panthers, Black Muslim Movement, Green Anarchist, Feminist Anarchist, Army of the Nation (Palestinian), the Soviet and Chinese flags, Revolutionary Communist Party USA, Saudi Arabia, Iran and North Korea.

  • Feud between John McCain and Rand Paul worsens after NSA reform fiasco

    Arizona Republicans are basically begging the Democrats to nominate a candidate who is not a frothing Moonbat, so they can turn away from McCain. McCain has used his influence and endless money to basically buy himself the primary, replacing all precinct chairmen with his personal toadies and lickspittles.

    And any Republican who dares to run against him McCain is clear he will ruin, not just politically, but financially, and personally. McCain will destroy them and their family just out of course.

    So the only two ways Arizona can be free of this beast is either for the Democrats to put up a candidate who is not utterly worthless, or for the grim reaper to enter the race and end John McCain once and for all.

    Don’t even think that McCain is an Arizonan. He originally hailed from Virginia, and even they disavow him. His beer heiress wife, with very deep pockets, is an Arizonan, but she much prefers living in the cocktail circuit of the Beltway.

    Will no one rid us of this monster?

  • Scott Walker's GOP rips apart local democracy

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to Cincinatus' Wife

    Walker has reached an important understanding: that liberals will try to control and tyrannize at any level of government, and while, for the most part, the majority of people can elect the government they want, that government is not free to oppress the minority that didn’t support it.

    For most of the 20th Century, it was understood that the purpose of local governments was to *manage* the local area in things such as zoning, emergency services and infrastructure. However, liberals have now decided to use local government to change social policy and behavior.

    And, as state governments have become more conservative, they are now trying to restore local governments to their intended purpose, preempting their ability to socially engineer people to their whims.

    And the liberals really hate and resent this, because they believe it is their right to use government to dominate and manipulate others against their will.

    At that level it is almost certainly money. Several big name corporations gave the Boy Scouts a bunch of money for a few years, then said they wouldn’t give any more unless they changed their policy on homosexuals.

    This makes perfect sense to people like Gates, who understand big corporations and relate to them, not ordinary people. They always tell themselves that they can do “so much good” with all that money, but the truth is that it is a devil’s deal: sell your soul for wealth, but when the contract runs its course, you lose your soul.

    Actually, this should apply to both female and male actors. From 20-30 they are typically at their sexual attractiveness peak, but from there they need to branch out as having some other value than sexual attractiveness.

    Yeah, you are pretty. What else can you do? Pretty doesn’t last, so what else you got?

    A lot of male and female actors figure the only thing they can do after their peak are “mommy” and “daddy”, or even “grandparent” roles. And while there is a place for those roles, to imagine that is the only thing people over the age of 30 can do is pretty weak.

    Importantly, if a woman who has been raped wants to carry the baby to term, she absolutely must “register” the rape as criminal rape. The reason being that some rapists actually have the gall to try and claim parenthood, entirely out of hate and the wish to further traumatize and dominate their victim. Sometimes to blackmail the family of their victim to be paid to go away.

    It sounds truly twisted, and that is what it is. However, if the criminal rape has been registered, the DNA of the child is evidential against the rapist. Instead of further abusing his victim, he will find himself on trial for rape. And likely extortion.

    Though the cross is perhaps what upsets them the most, other Christian religious symbols also have some effect, like The Holy Bible, and even Holy Water. Which leads to a funny anecdote you might enjoy.

    A long time ago I paid a visit to a very old Catholic church on an Indian reservation, still used as a Catholic elementary school and church, and they also have a nice gift shop for tourists, of which they get many. And one of the items there were empty small plastic bottles labeled Holy Water. They had a stainless steel tank with Holy Water in it that could be used to fill the bottles, but I left mine empty.

    Weeks later, I was making some habanero pepper picante, and had about an extra half cup of habanero juice. Not having a small, well sealed bottle on hand, I put it in the Holy Water bottle, with the idea of providing some of my hot pepper aficionado friends a sample of what my extremely hot picante would taste like, when I met them later at a coffee shop.

    That evening, at the coffee shop, I saw a group of unhappy, Gothic dressed children, all wearing black of course. Their leader, an older boy, professed to be a Satanist and wannabee vampire. He was a rotter, and he was leading the others astray. I didn’t care for him at all.

    In any event, we got to talking, and the older boy’s bragging and pretense of menace finally annoyed me enough to ask if he was repelled by symbols of Christianity.

    This set him off, saying he was such powerful “eevil” that he was impervious to such things. So I pulled out the bottle of “Holy Water”, showing the label to him and his little friends. So, it wouldn’t hurt you if I sprinkled this on you? Of course not!, he proclaimed.

    So I gave him some good splashes, trying to avoid his eyes, being a nice guy.

    He immediately went into a Jekyll and Hyde routine, as if the Holy Water was burning him. Then he stopped and regained his composure, and said, see, it has no power over me!

    And then the habanero juice kicked in.

    After a far more realistic performance of great pain and confusion, he ran off screaming into the night, while his surprised little friends started reevaluating their relationship with him.

    Restaurants will be the hardest hit in this. Typically, in a large metro area, new restaurants have a 50% attrition (closing) rate in their first six months. Then half of the remaining restaurants close within a year. So a 75% failure rate in one year.

    Also, I wonder how soon it will be before gun liberty advocates in Texas can push for the state to go “full Arizona” in its gun laws. Arizona’s savings by having gun liberty must already be in the millions of dollars, just at the state level. Perhaps double that at the county and city level.

    This one is borderline. It is a technology class. The very definition of technology is “The application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes.”

    In this case, the teacher erred by not saying that students should use an inspirational message *from* science or technology. So yes, it was the teacher’s fault, because inspiration comes from a vast number of sources, with religion leading the pack.

    Even if the teacher had discarded other inspirational messages, be they from sports, politics, art and literature, etc., they still would be wrong for not being specific in the assignment.

    As things are now, the teacher comes across as a jerk, shunning a cross, in hate and fear, like Count Dracula.

    (N.B.: increasing numbers of anti-Christian atheists are behaving this way, freaking out at the very sight of a religious symbol. This is an interesting phenomenon.)

    For westerners, some of the important values of Sikhs they can appreciate.

    1) Monotheistic. One God only.

    2) Opposed to discrimination due to religion, race, gender, or social status.

    3) Are more realistic, less idealistic. They believe in both good thoughts and good deeds.

    4) Strong believers in secular military service, and loyalty to the army in which they serve. (The Indian Sikh regiment is one of the most decorated regiments in the world, including 14 Victoria Crosses as part of the British Army. Sikhs fought in WWI, WWII, and other conflicts.)

    5) Typically Sikhs are middle class and are attracted to entrepreneurial and professional lines of work.

    6) Both Muslims and Hindus have tried to oppress them in past, and they do fight back if attacked.

    7) Were banned from US military service in the 1980s, and the Army still strongly resists their return, but two Sikhs have been permitted to serve and deploy, a doctor and a dentist.

  • Our Crazy Treatment of the Mentally Ill

    05/21/2015 5:07:12 PM PDT · 30 of 40
    yefragetuwrabrumuy to Kaslin

    The states are no longer willing or able to institutionalize large numbers of people who need to be institutionalized. And nobody trusts the federal government to do so.

    Therefore, a remedy might be agreements between states to set up and operate multi-state asylums. Importantly, these will have safeguards to prevent people who do not need that care from being dumped there, as well as safeguards to prevent those who need institutionalization from easily being loosed.

    To start with, states pay a flat rate to set up the asylum, then pay for each person from their state institutionalized there.

    To get there, first a low level diagnosis of mental illness is made by a psychiatrist. Then an independent diagnosis is made by a different psychiatrist at county level. Then yet another diagnosis by a different psychiatrist at state level. Then finally a panel of psychiatrists from all of the states, any one of which could veto the patient being put there.

    The asylum itself is subdivided into six parts. The first part is long term care unlikely to change. Basically a coma ward for people unable to tend for themselves.

    The second part is for people who are incapacitated, but may recover to some degree, or whose condition is degenerating. There will be research and experimental therapies here.

    The third part is for those who are mentally ill, but can still function some of the time. Again, active therapy.

    The fourth part is for those who are “guilty but insane”, and who otherwise would be in prison.

    The fifth part is for those who are dangerously insane, and a serious threat to themselves and others. It is a maximum security section.

    The sixth part is administration.

    If the state refuses to execute heinous murderers, it is by default left up to the people to use the legal means at their disposal to kill such fiends.

    While police are obligated to try an arrest violent criminals in the commission of a felony crime, ordinary citizens are under no such obligation. This means citizens should discontinue any “warning shots”, or efforts to shoot to wound, or to stop firing if subjectively a criminal may be incapacitated, but they cannot determine that they are in fact incapacitated.

    For particularly foul murderers, an understanding with police might be reached that there is no pressing need for a trial with life imprisonment, that it would be far more to the point that when the opportunity presented itself that the murderer would commit suicide, without much effort to prevent them from doing so.

    However, by far it is the armed citizenry who must make up for this injustice.

    A lot of this goes back to the pseudo-religious Taiping Rebellion, which may possibly have been the second bloodiest conflict after World War II.

    Few Americans are familiar with this 14 year war, as it overlapped the US Civil War, and because Americans and Europeans were involved in its beginning and end.

    To make a long story short, American missionaries gave a religious tract or pamphlet to the wrong guy. Both crazy and incredibly charismatic, after skimming it he decided that he was “Jesus’ younger brother”.

    American historians estimate 20 million people were killed. British historians, 30-50 million.

    In any event, since then, leaders of China have been scared half to death by Christianity, even though it is obviously not a threat, and they lump other religions together as also having the potential to become murderous beyond belief.

    They have similar feelings about student uprisings, which almost destroyed their country during Mao’s Cultural Revolution. So when the leaders looked out their windows at the peaceful protesters in Tienanmen Square, a lot of them were so terrified they curled up in a fetal position on the floor and started to weep.

    His big mistake was in wanting to initiate violence. It is not legal to start a fight, but it is quite legal to defend yourself in a fight.

    For years now, small town police departments have been luring pedophiles to visit their towns with the prospect of molesting a child there. Even small towns get many major felony busts of these pedophiles after trolling them on the Internet. So why not do the same to violent Islamists?

    With some planning, culminating in Internet trolling of Jihadist websites, otherwise “peaceful, moderate” Muslims will be willing to drive a long distance to murder innocent people. That they fail in their purpose is good for everyone else; but that they fail at the cost of their own lives, is well, legal.

    In realistic terms, looking for an optimal outcome, the most important thing to do is first, to parse the agency so that its different areas of authority have different outcomes.

    1) Alcohol. Clearly there is no need for the federal regulation of ethanol, though “pure food and drug” guidelines should be given to the states so that *they* can assure that retail alcohol is potable and not poisonous. Testing alcohol for quality should be the responsibility of those states in which it is sold. No more federal alcohol taxes, but the states can tax as they see fit. The feds would still have a say for international alcohol trade.

    2) Tobacco. A similar regime, with no need for federal involvement, beyond inspection of foreign tobacco entering the US.

    3) Firearms and explosives, including chemical precursors. This is the section to be turned over to the FBI, as it is far beyond the second amendment, which should be isolated in its own area, away from things like chemical weapons, rockets and missiles, artillery and mortars, incendiary weapons, and even overlaps to some degree with biological and radiological devices.

  • How to Kill Christianity

    Clarity to things come with the understanding that socialism is nothing more than an atheistic parody of Christianity, that dispenses with the idea of God, and puts mankind in His place, at the center of the universe, creator of all things.

    Other than that, socialists love to try to co-opt The Bible, to scrub it of references to God, and pretend it is their book.

    For their part, Christians fail terribly when they assume that because socialists preach similar means of behavior, that their ends must be similar as well. So Christians easily get caught up in the schemes of socialism.

    For example, Christians imagine charity to the poor as being a righteous thing, and uplifting, that the poor might learn to improve their own lives and find righteousness themselves.

    However, the socialist version of this is so vile that it seems imagined in Hell itself. For a socialist, charity is just a means by which the socialist can get power over others and money. It strongly opposes uplifting others, as it wants their dependence. Only in poverty and ignorance are the poor useful to socialists.

    And the ends are repulsive as well. For once the socialist is in power and has wealth, as far as they are concerned, there is no more poverty. The socialists have become the new “nobility”, and they and their offspring are thereafter permanent elites, to rule over the peasants. If the peasants are poor, it is because they are supposed to be that way.

    This is a big reason that socialists hate the middle classes, as well, because they are mostly responsible for economically uplifting others.

    Christians get suckered into supporting socialism so often that it is tragic. It is a path to their downfall and loss of faith. Socialism is all about being trendy and fashionable, the shallow and the plastic. It feeds the ego, the self importance and self pity.

    But in the final analysis, socialism is just the path to death and destruction. There is no life or redemption within it, nor kindness, fairness, real charity or the love of others.

    Philosophically, socialism can be described as “the least of Hells”, Hell being “an absence of God”. As such, Milton was correct as to the motives of Satan, and his attitude is much like that of socialists.

    Here at least
    We shall be free; th’ Almighty hath not built
    Here for his envy, will not drive us hence:
    Here we may reign secure, and in my choyce
    To reign is worth ambition though in Hell:
    Better to reign in Hell, then serve in Heav’n.

    The tl;dr version. The biker gang The Cossacks, which seems somewhat affiliated with the Hells Angels, decided to do a hostile takeover of Texas, which is the biker gang The Banditos territory.

    Traditionally, the Hells Angels and the Banditos are bitter rivals.

    I would hazard to say that shooting such an offensive scoundrel would not typically be the remedy in southern etiquette. (Unless, of course, he was defiling the grave of kin, in which case it would be appropriate.)

    But horsewhipping would be culturally recognized as the appropriate remedy for something as course as tampering with sacred ground. Sadly, horse whips and the mastery of their use are far less common these days. Acceptable alternatives to horse whips do need some consideration as to their utility.
