  • As more inmates are released from prison, more parolees return

    This is a problem all over the country. But a way to alleviate it is to create “sanctuary towns”. These are basically “minimum security” rural towns where older parolees can be allowed to live out their lives.

    The security is to keep outsiders out. Between welfare and charity, their needs are met, and they can tend gardens to provide themselves fresh foods and vegetables. Eventually they might even husband chickens and pigs.

    The level of technology is reduced to minimal, and the town is run by an administrator.

    The bottom line to this is that it is a lot cheaper than trying to force them to integrate back into society. It keeps them away from vices and out of harms way for the rest of their lives.

    I suspect a good reason for them to periodically burn down everything was primitive sanitation, though they probably didn’t think that. 60-80 years is about the maximum lifespan of the oldest person in the settlement, of those who were born about the time of the last burning.

    That man from Tennessee should be commended all around for half a dozen reasons. He used his cc properly, drawing down on the crazy guy while cg was distracted, which is a huge advantage of cc.

    And then the amazing judgment, for which no one can honestly chastise him, to realize that he didn’t need to shoot. Yes, arguments can be made that he should have shot anyway; but it’s always a better night, personally, when you don’t have to kill someone.

    Hopefully, cg will get his “head candled”, and get sent to the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm to get help. Maybe if someday he is of sound mind again, he will thank heaven for that white man from Tennessee who didn’t shoot. Unlikely, but he should.

    There are subdivisions in technology, as there are branches of science, and general knowledge of what is in each group is useful.

    Likewise there is some degree of technological overlap, as there is overlap in the branches of science.

    But eventually, people need to discard information that is less useful, as long as they remember that it exists.

    A great example, for most people, is algebra. It can be extremely useful, if you need it, but most people seldom need to involve themselves with it in their daily lives.

    It is also important to realize that partisan division is *good*, because it gives scoundrels less maneuver room. Politicians are forced to voting for what they promised.

    They are easier to “whip” in the legislature, so are more responsive to voters than lobbyists.

    And, in the final analysis, when places are politically divided, the people get what they want, and its consequences. And this works far better for conservatives than it does for liberals.

  • Racism Right and Left: One Man’s Opinion

    Slave-descended black Americans (to distinguish them from an entirely different people, recent African immigrants), are in a miserable state. They have a cultural cancer that is eating out their substance, and over time is turning into S-D black “self genocide”.

    They are being strongly encouraged and enabled in this self extinction by leftists and liberals. The left has used them in multiple vile social engineering experiments, that have horribly hurt them, while at the same time vigorously helped cull their numbers in a killing frenzy akin to a pack of hyenas slaughtering a herd of trapped gazelles.

    Their ridiculously high abortion rate, the collapse of black marriage, the single parent raising of feral children, the horrifically high incarceration rate, endemic abuse of poisonous illegal drugs, and an inexcusably high number of black on black homicides, is destroying them as a people.

    When someone is acutely suicidal, telling that they are suicidal because other people think they are ugly and stupid and will never love them, “so it’s not your fault, blame them”, is just stupid and cruel. Unless you *want* them to commit suicide.

    The same thing applies to a suicidal people, with leftists continually pounding in to them that all of their problems are caused by the racism of others, that other people think they are ugly and stupid, and they will never be respected.

    Leftists want S-D blacks to self exterminate, and their schemes are working. The only survivors will be S-D black people who can rise above the lies, and abandon both leftists and liberals, especially the fake “black leaders”, as the real racists in the room.

    Japan is more than aware of this, but so is Taiwan, who likely feel that the Chinese pulled out and “dusted off” a Taiwan invasion scenario to work on Japan.

    This is a problem with “message belligerence”.

    Likewise the US Navy is keeping a very close watch on this from several angles: satellites, surface, and submarine surveillance. Oodles of very useful information can be obtained this way.

    What is missing are the ‘wild card’ actors in the region, any of those nations China has bullied and threatened in the past. Though they do not have a great reach, they do have considerable potential for mischief at Chinese expense.

    The list includes South Korea, less a ship sunk at Chinese auspices by North Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines, and others. Any of them could likely obtain a torpedo or some naval mines and carry out a low budget, high “plausible deniability” attack.

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to grey_whiskers

    Deep question: why hadn’t Communism/socialism been tried in the ancient world?

    For a very good reason. It is a child of the Age of Enlightenment (1650s - 1780s), but more so, it is a *parody* of Christianity.

    The atheistic philosophies began in earnest in those times, placing mankind at the center of the universe, yet the King James Bible (in England) and the French Bible of the time permeated these philosophers work.

    They hated God, but loved the mythology of the Bible, so tried to co-opt it to their purposes. Broad elements of what is known today as socialism, such as radical environmentalism, their hatred of civilization, the pursuit of the New Jerusalem on Earth, are all corruptions and perversions of stories taken from the Bible.

    Sadly that doesn’t work. Check out the Tueller drill. It is designed for a police officer who is prepared to be attacked, and still needs 21 feet minimum for a double tap.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tueller_Drill

    And as a civilian, not expecting a charge, you would likely need 30 feet or more. But wait, there’s more.

    The majority of the time you cannot tell ill intent. Most attacks use subterfuge to “close the gap”, but you cannot tell if it is subterfuge or someone with a legitimate reason to approach, which it is most of the time.

    This is why I often insist that if you are going to carry a gun, you also carry a knife as a complementary weapon, in that it fills possible tactical gaps you have with a gun.

    You do not wish to be casually brandishing your gun in public, but you can brandish a knife very discreetly. If they rush you within the Tueller distance, they lose. If they do not close quickly enough, you get your gun and they lose.

    Now, after all that, turn the situation around. They have a gun pointed at you, and you are within *their* Tueller distance. They do not know that you have a cc gun or a knife.

    In one instance, you just parry their gun so it is not aimed at you, and use your knife. Or gun, for that matter. If you can close to under five feet, you might be able to pull off some disarming self defense. You have some big advantages over them.

    This especially applies if they are using their gun like a nitwit. They likely believe that a gun magically imparts control and dominance over others.

    This is why I strongly advocate that states with a death penalty have a fall back ‘means’ of execution of the firing squad. It is very inexpensive, the equipment used is ubiquitous, every LEO in the state is qualified to pull a trigger.

    It is much, much harder to appeal, stop or delay. It is not “cruel and unusual”. It is fast, with little or no chance of screwing up. It doesn’t matter if the condemned is tall or short, thin or fat. Male or female.

    Properly used, it could take perhaps 5 years off the two decades or more appeals process. So faster justice.

    That is an understatement. Sucralose, aka Splenda, will massacre your good bacteria, but leave your bad bacteria, especially Enterobacter, untouched. Enterobacter is one of the top obesity causing bacterias.

    If you consume sucralose for 12 weeks, even discontinuing it for the next 12 weeks will not recover your healthy flora.

    Yeasts consume most simple sugars. Candidiasis (from Candida albicans, the commonest internal yeast) can happen about anywhere in the body, and be obvious or not, but simply means a “yeast infection”. Yeast can produce over 100 health problems, and even when you kill off a bunch of it, you get a ‘Parthian shot’ of feeling ill, because of all the toxins the dead yeast release.

    The two ways of fighting excess yeast are first, by starving it of the sugar and simple carbohydrates it feeds on, and second, by consuming substances that directly kill yeast.

    And yes, you craving for sugar is likely less you, than it is likely your yeast ‘talking’.

    A more direct approach is with clove oil or clove tea:

    http://www.thecandidadiet.com/cloves.htm

    It is quite strong, mixing a half teaspoon of powdered clove in hot water, letting it steep for a minute, then straining out the remaining powder. It does not taste good.

    And you might feel mildly ill the first few times you take it, which likely means it is working and killing a lot of yeast.

    A lot of martial artists have spent a lot of time to come up with ways to take a gun away from someone else. Just do a quick YouTube search for “how to disarm someone with a gun”.

    It works better than you might think, because a lot of criminal gunmen do not know how to use a gun properly and otherwise have the IQ of mildew. And even people who know how to use guns properly make errors that can be exploited.

    Buffets are good as an unusual event, however, Americans tend to miss out on a lot by not varying *how* they eat as much as what they eat.

    The “Midwest sit-down gorge” with either all the food on the table at once, or in a buffet line, was how farm families used to eat. At a given time, everybody would stop working, assemble in the dining room, and gorge until they were full. Then back to work.

    However, when you have a more relaxed life, you don’t have to do it that way. You can have smaller meals that take longer, more often, and enjoy them more. For a main meal, you can eat in courses, even with breaks in between courses.

    Important lesson to gun owners here.

    I had a friend who was a master sword maker. He told me that because of stupid people, he was also an expert at getting a sword out of someone’s hand before they could hurt someone else. He would sell swords at an SCA event, for example, and some guy would ask to see a blade, while standing in a crowd, mind you, and start swinging it around “to test it”, oblivious to the other people. So the sword maker was always ready to snatch a sword out of the fools’ hand.

    I mention this because there are any number of fools who behave foolishly while holding a gun. And being a responsible gun person, you may want to snatch the gun out of their hand before they can hurt someone.

    Okay, but *then* what happens?, is my point.

    Importantly, this may likely not be *your* gun, but someone else’s, and you have just snatched it out of their hand. The first inclination is feeling in the wrong.

    Don’t. Your first inclination should either to be to remove the magazine and clear the gun safely, or to open the cylinder and pour the bullets into your other hand.

    If they want to get snooty about it, which is likely the case since they are a fool, take the hit. Just be very clear and loud when telling them that guns are not toys, so do not play with them in an unsafe manner. No gun play.

    And, as in this case, be very careful to not unthinkingly brandish the gun yourself. So after the bullets are out, hold the gun in a non-threatening manner.

    An obvious counter to such incredibly advanced aircraft uses a very old military balance, between quality and quantity. If a military relies too heavily on one or the other, it becomes vulnerable to attack using the other.

    While there certainly is a need for such an advanced system, there is also a pressing need for a low cost, low tech, expendable system that can be mass produced in huge numbers.

    They do not have to be particularly fast, maneuverable or stealthy. Nor do they need a great deal of weaponry. But they need to exist in great numbers.

    Imagine a “buzz bomb” type aircraft. A very simple system that has a common conventional engine, a fuel tank, some type of weapon, even just a bomb, internal wire guidance, and a shielded modular computer brain that can be inserted just before it is used, with an even simpler ‘auto pilot’ that works if its ‘brain’ is knocked out. Its skin is made of recycled beer cans. The aircraft comes in a box and can be assembled, fueled and programmed in just a few minutes prior to launch.

    Per unit, optimally about $100,000 each. Maybe less.

    The cheapest F-35A in full production is $85,000,000 each. The Pentagon plans to build 2,443 at $160m each. Around $390 billion dollars.

    For the same amount of money as just one of these, you could make 850 of these cheap aircraft. An armada. A close to unstoppable armada. For $390 billion, you could make 3,900,000 of these small aircraft. Enough to invade another world.

  • This Conservative Historian Took on Howard Zinn, Writing ‘A Patriot’s History’

    12/27/2014 5:53:50 AM PST · 6 of 18
    yefragetuwrabrumuy to iowamark

    There is a need for another American history book, and one that would likely be banned in most of the public high schools in the US.

    As Mel Gibson’s movie, The Patriot, was a whole lot different than the little Revolutionary War history that is taught in schools today, the truth of Colonial and early America is that it was a time of savagery, in an age of savagery, and that the colonists had to be exceptionally tough people to not just survive, but prosper.

    While the colonists had taken the east coast, they were effectively blocked from moving inland by the northern and southern Indian confederations. And only by extraordinary luck were they able to make the westward expansion.

    To start with, before the colonists had arrived, the northern and southern tribes had a horrific war, so murderous that they had made what is now most of the state of Kentucky a gigantic “neutral zone”, that hunting parties could enter but was forbidden to encampment by either confederation. The reason was that Kentucky was strategically vital, for both east-west and north south travel. A great crossroads, that remained so through the later US Civil War.

    In any event, the colonists were stuck on the east coast, but just then, the British deported a very belligerent and tough people, the “Scots Borderers” to the colonies. And having no place on the east coast to settle, the colonists sent them to occupy the Kentucky region.

    Because it was a neutral zone to the Indians, the Borderers were able to move in and set up forts before either confederation wised up. And then they were tough enough to resist the brutal efforts by the confederations to kick them out. The end result was a passage west from the colonies, the beginning of westward expansion.

    Neither the northern or southern tribes were happy with this, and in the North, two ridiculously brutal wars followed: first the French and Indian War, which at times became “no quarters” slaughters; and then, with the British victory, this lead to Pontiac’s Rebellion, which was hideous, but finally broke the back of the northern confederation.

    The southern confederation remained intact, and a major threat, until Andrew Jackson, who had formerly allied with the Indians to kick out the French, turned against them an ethnically cleansed them from east of the Mississippi, an event known today as “The Trail of Tears”.

    As America expanded West, it fought for every foot of land, against the Plains Indians, and then the western Indians.

    In any event, things like these should be available at the high school level, to dispel any notions that committee meetings, hand wringing, and “Kumbaya” achieve more than diddly-squat in the real world.

    But this being said, most high schools wouldn’t permit this book anywhere near their libraries.

    The judge’s convoluted rationalizations are nauseating.

    Because a young child is raped, they have had a “sexual awakening” is nonsense. That they are later able to have sex voluntarily with others does not negate the physical or emotional damage that took place. Even worse, to say that they suffered no harm because later they agreed to incestuous sex is just repulsive. It could justifiably be called “Stockholm syndrome”.

    An analogy is that this judge is sent to prison, where he is raped repeatedly by violent criminals. After he is released from prison, the criminals look him up, and he is so emotionally subjugated to them he voluntarily agrees to be raped by them some more. The judge has had his “sexual awakening.” The courts find that he is now legally a homosexual, so cannot be raped by other homosexuals. Maybe with the logic that he can keep them out with a cork.

    Something is amiss in this situation. Examine the crime.

    (After a pistol whipping cheap shot) They then “put him face down on the ground, frisked him, and stole the victim’s concealed weapon,” the report states.

    Even the first person who commented in the news article said, “They took his gun, but not his wallet?” First red flag.

    It seems to me that they *knew* he had a cc weapon, and their intent from the start was to get it. Why else put somebody down and *frisk* them?

    This sounds like a scene from a Mickey Spillane novel.

    So unless the guy intentionally, or accidentally, flashed his gun in public, or it was obvious through his clothes, it would behoove the police to follow up with some questions to the victim, because the assumption should be that he knew his assailants.

    The location, Henry Clay and Coliseum in NOLA, by Google street view, is a residential suburban area. Side streets, lawns and houses. Not a typical mugging location either.

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to SleeperCatcher

    This could prove to be history repeating itself.

    The Whig party leadership was totally committed to business and ignored the rest of society. But it was a viable party only because of the large number of people who rejected the repulsive Jacksonian Democrat party.

    Finally, it was the issue of slavery that forced the Whig rank and file to leave and form the Republican party; because the Whig leadership just couldn’t bring itself to resolutely oppose slavery, because slavery “was good for business”. The Whig rank and file were extremely opposed to slavery, but the party leadership blocked them from power much like the RINOs and GOP-e block conservatives today.

    They would sell America off to corporate multinationals and corporate controlled internationalism, just as repulsive as the socialist internationalism wanted by the Democrats.

    Continuing with this analogy, all it takes is for there to be an agreement among conservatives to all walk out of the Republican party, and bar the RINOs and GOP-e from the new party. Sure, for one election, the Republican leadership would have its cronies pour money into them, but so many of their office holders would leave, they would likely lose all but a smattering of seats in congress.

    Whether this will come about is the question, however, because with each election, more and more RINOs and GOP-e are losing their seats. At some point it will reach a threshold where they cannot maintain their power, and the end result will be the same.

    Swedes are notoriously slow to anger, but when they do go off it is in the old berserker mode.

    For men, it is always a good rule of thumb that you should never meet a strange single woman in a private place or at an odd hour in a non-public setting. x1000 if she is underage.

    It is extra obvious, because women are trained to not do this either, with strange men.

    After midnight? Sorry, I’m working with a couple of friends (Smith & Wesson) tonight. So why don’t we meet at 2pm at the coffee shop at Main and Central?

    Get used to seeing news stories like this, because heroin use is skyrocketing, due to the reformulation of prescription opiate painkillers, making them harder to abuse. On the black market, heroin often costs a quarter of what pills do, per dose, so if they can’t get pills, they get heroin.

    As a rule of thumb, high grade white heroin comes in through the coasts, and cheaper brown heroin, for smoking or snorting, comes up from Mexico.

    “156,000 people starting heroin use in 2012, nearly double the number of people in 2006 (90,000).” (National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH)).

    They are all “celebrating” ‘Festivus’. A bitter, hate-filled pseudo-holiday for atheists, created for the Seinfeld sitcom.

    In practice, it has four parts: bitter, Keith Olbermann-type hatred of anyone better than you; lashing out cruelly at anyone nearby; cheap alcohol abuse to aggravate depression; and sneering, resentful sarcasm against anyone with religious faith.

  • Stop lying about the cops

    I think it is more important to examine the axiom of “tensions between the police and the communities that they serve.”

    False even on its surface, the majority of people in “the community” strongly support the police. So it is a minority (not ethnic minority exclusively) of people that have ‘tension’ with the police. Who are they?

    Start with “the criminals”, and their supportive families.

    As has quickly become obvious in these protests, it is less about honest black people being killed by the police, than it is about violent and dangerous black people being killed, often when robbing or trying to kill someone else.

    A large number of these protesters are demanding the right for *them* (or their family members) to rob and kill, but to not be killed themselves while doing so, or sent to prison after.

    Perhaps this is thinking that they have ‘black privilege’, a right to violate the social contract, and to abuse and even kill others without retribution. A “Never Go To Jail” card. Why? “Because we are victims”, they would say.

    It is also obvious that the overwhelming majority do not support this idea of privilege.

  • NYPD Sources: No Arrests During #ShutDown5thAve Protests, per De Blasio

    The response to this is “the ball is in the NYPD’s court”. By this I mean their rank and file, not their official leaders. Remember that they know a lot of people who used to be ultra-violent, some of whom owe the cops favors.

    I knew of one city’s PD that was oppressed by a leftist city hall, that demanded they never hit anyone, ever. So the PD reached an agreement with a local biker gang. The PD would leave the bikers alone, in exchange for which if a cop wanted some creep roughed up, he would “call a biker”. Both the cops and the bikers were very satisfied with the arrangement.

    So wit peripherally involved in the deal said that, “The bikers were rather pleased with their response time.”

    That woman has a hundred times the guts Obama ever did.

    This is what “core values” look like, if you are ever asked.

    Obesity from consuming Splenda is far less a concern than having a damaged intestinal flora. That could leave you wide open to opportunistic infections of drug resistant bacteria.

    These are already happening at a ridiculously high rate in the US.

    “Each year in the United States, at least 2 million people become infected with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics and at least 23,000 people die each year as a direct result of these infections. Many more people die from other conditions that were complicated by an antibiotic-resistant infection.” - CDC information

  • Is Obamacare Causing Health Care Rationing?

    I want a conservative congress to pass a law.

    “The American Freedom and Liberty Act”

    The law would state that any citizen of the United States who chose to do so, could elect to NOT participate in any federal program oriented to individuals, the sole exception being an actual enumeration (only) of them as a person for the purposes of the US census.

    This means that with a single declaration, an individual could remove themselves permanently from the Social Security System, Medicare, any form of welfare or food stamps, any federal databases other than criminal, no housing assistance, no food assistance, no educational assistance, no medical (Obamacare) enrollment, or any other program directed at individual citizens and others.

    The greatest part of the bill would be that they would no longer pay any Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) tax, nor any Obamacare tax, or any other tax made as an individual payment on the promise of a federal benefit return.

    Importantly, they would also not be subject to any punishment for having done so. That is, no “alternative to FICA” tax, no requirement for paperwork or identification, no denial of any publicly offered benefit. And as part of this, the states could not be compelled to force citizens to participate, either, nor could they do so voluntarily.
