  1. Let me add to this. Under the kind of genius reasoning the Quora BA person used, you can get to really silly places. For example, nowhere I know of in the Constitution does it say dead people can't vote. So that means when dead people do vote, that's Constitutional. Ta-Daa!!!! Michael

  2. Peter, It's not relevant. It's hogwash. To use an analogy, your Quora BA essentially states that once I steal your car and falsify the license on it, I now own the car. You can't get it back. You can buy it from me, though. Fraud invalidates any and all legal processes. Criminals may not like that. But that's the way it is. What is the form for the remedy to this? Since this crime was so massive, it is a first and nobody knows. But one thing is for sure. Right and wrong exist. You cannot have law and have fraud, call them the same thing and say that is Constitutional. It isn't. In other words, the Constitution was not created to be a vehicle to legitimize fraud. It was created to organize society around individual rights and checks and balances. Fraud is not a proper check or balance. It is crime, the opposite of law. Michael

  3. TG Here you go: Michael btw - If you want to know how to do that like I do, and do it really fast, here is my process. 1. Install Irfanview. It's free, fast as hell and rocks. 2. Find the image on the Internet you want to put in an OL post. Right click on it and select "copy image." (If the image is on your hard drive, copy it the way you normally do.) 3. Open Irfanview and paste image. (Click on the blank canvas and paste.) 4. In Irfanview, use the menu: Image --> Resize/Resample. 5. When the small popup called "Resize/Resample image" opens, select "Inches" and "Preserve aspect ratio (proportional)" and "Apply sharpen after Resample." Then in the "Width" field, enter 5. That will be 5 inches. (That works really well as a uniform size for OL. At least that's what I use. And it really helps when the original image is 25 inches or so.) Click OK. 6. With the image resized, select it (Crtl a) then copy (Crtl c). 7. Paste in OL post. This will put the image on OL's server and there will be no metadata or bug-uglies in the metadata in the image. This mean the image will not be deleted if a tweet is deleted on Twitter (or image originally from another site is deleted on that site). That is why you sometimes see me post a tweet with an image in it, then post the image by itself under the tweet. If Twitter deletes the tweet, I still have the image in the post and on OL the OL server. Note: Once you have selected inches and the other items I mentioned for the little popup called "Resize/Resample image," instead of going the menu route (Image --> Resize/Resample), you can simply hit Crtl r. Not only will the popup appear, the "Width" field will be highlighted. Then type 5 and click OK. Once you get the hang of this, it goes really fast. I probably should write this up or make a video and put it in the OL Corner Office.

  4. If someone like or someone who actually is MTG isn't the Speaker , it won't much matter congressionally. A senate majority with Cocaine Mitch and letter writin' Lindsey ain't no way to save a republic. (It would be better still to have an America first agenda amongst the board of Alphabet and Twitter and the FBorg).

  8. “I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.” Jefferson—and the other Founding Fathers—meant it. They did not confine their efforts to the battle against theocracy and monarchy; they fought, on the same grounds, invoking the same principle of individual rights—against democracy, i.e., the system of unlimited majority rule. They recognized that the cause of freedom is not advanced by the multiplication of despots, and they did not propose to substitute the tyranny of a mob for that of a handful of autocrats . . . . When the framers of the American republic spoke of “the people,” they did not mean a collectivist organism one part of which was authorized to consume the rest. They meant a sum of individuals, each of whom—whether strong or weak, rich or poor—retains his inviolate guarantee of individual rights. http://cultureofreason.org/style/img/theominousparallels.jpg Leonard Peikoff, The Ominous Parallels, 111 --- "The world crisis of today is a moral crisis—and nothing less than a moral revolution can resolve it: a moral revolution to sanction and complete the political achievement of the American Revolution. Evasions, equivocations and guilty apologies will not work any longer." Ayn Rand. For the new intellectual: the philosophy of Ayn Rand (Kindle Locations 879-880). New American Library.

  9. Revolution vs. Putsch The New Left does not portend a revolution, as its press agents claim, but a Putsch. A revolution is the climax of a long philosophical development and expresses a nation’s profound discontent; a Putsch is a minority’s seizure of power. The goal of a revolution is to overthrow tyranny; the goal of a Putsch is to establish it. Tyranny is any political system (whether absolute monarchy or fascism or communism) that does not recognize individual rights (which necessarily include property rights). The overthrow of a political system by force is justified only when it is directed against tyranny: it is an act of self-defense against those who rule by force. For example, the American Revolution. The resort to force, not in defense, but in violation, of individual rights, can have no moral justification; it is not a revolution, but gang warfare.
