  1. Well, the guy is in pieces sure, but can you really say murderer? That lumps in a justified hacking death , categorical dissonance? and how big is the handle, could be a hatchet ? ( some people call it a sling blade , hmmm)

  3. Here is what Marxism looks like these days. But don't forget, Marxism is a plan with a timeline, not an on-off switch. In taking over a different country, there are stages and some of them will not look like old-style Marxism until it's too late and time to execute the useful idiots. Rush Limbaugh mentioned the following article this morning. China bought the elitists in America. (btw - Lee Smith, the author, is the guy who helped Devin Nunes bust open Crossfire Hurricane and has been involved in other exposés about the Russia-Trump hoaxes.)

  5. Well well well. They kept pushing and they kept pushing and they kept pushing and then this happened. I love it. People can have the freedom to hate the USA and say so openly. But we--through the American government--should not have to pay for it. Right the fuck on... Michael

  6. It’s great too that the venues are outside and get the visual of AirForce 1 as the backdrop. I also think being physically located on airport property means federal jurisdiction and less if any chance of local jurisdictions disallowing events .

  7. Here's the bow tie on this one. VA cancels 'race cafe' event that allegedly violated Trump's executive order The interesting thing about this article is that it shows EXACTLY how the changing labels thing works with liberals. The bad guys merely stopped using the term "critical race theory" and kept doing the same horseshit while claiming to be compliant. Then acted like a victim. They always do this crap. I'm glad to see someone on the conservative/libertarian side actually look at the substance rather than just the label for a change. On the marketing side,

  8. CM, What I'm going to say below might seem like a sidestep of the issue, but it is not. 1. With the current understandings of neuroscience and modern psychology, this question is more interesting historically than it is in terms of human nature. Of, if you happen to come from a strict Lutheran family or something like that, your question is relevant since there is a lot of storytelling to align. (I don't mean that disrespectfully.) From a human nature lens, mirror neurons, fMRI scans, tons of modern psychology experiments, neutraceuticals and other brain impacting pharmac

  9. Peter's beginning: "It was pretty ugly. A small crowd outside Senator Graham’s house, though terribly nice I am sure, was found missing with empty tranquilizer darts all over the ground." Continue: A paid volunteer who had strewn jumbo shrimp and plastic silverware around accidentally on purpose tried to blame a deranged bird dog but was charged with being a bad sport. Preliminary conclusion: It was a fine mess of a tragic comedy. Ellen

  14. Peter, Here ya' go. Read it and smile. Senator Lindsey Graham: “We’ve Got the Votes to Confirm the Justice on the Floor of the Senate BEFORE the Election” (VIDEO) My favorite tit-for-tat comment I read somewhere out there went something like this: If they can impeach a president in an election year, surely the President can appoint a Supreme Court Justice in an election year.

  15. T, On the positive side, RBG was a lot more nuanced than any version you will get from the media these days. Her version of the Constitution was informed by being a woman, though. As written, the Constitution didn't even allow her to vote. But it was amended. This is why I believe she considered the Constitution a "living document" that could be changed at will rather than a document based on universal human principles. In other words, she saw the initial context as a betrayal of those principles since it didn't include women, blacks, Indians and so on, so she preferred to replace th

  17. Has MSK ever seen a Scrabble dictionary? Earth to MSK. I have quoted Mencken three times recently as follows. “For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple and wrong.” ― H. L. Mencken That clearly is not about any dictionary. However, the following is about one word in a dictionary, straw man. Look it up. MSK revels making straw men and then flaming them.

  18. Polly weighs in on Cuties. I'm watching it now, so I don't have a comment yet. I do like the title, though: Cuties & Useful Idiots. (For those who know: . For everyone else: ) Michael NOTE: I'm halfway through. If you want facts and tons of them, this is an excellent video. But here's the shocker for out neck of the woods. Polly comes down HARD on Reason magazine for promoting this film. As she shows, several big-wigs at Reason support Cuties. The Reason people call it "art." Polly calls it "soft-porn" since she can't see any artistic reason for

  19. Snopes rated, by their rating standards, the claim to be ‘outdated’. Basically the truth or falsehood has been deemed irrelevant. Lol. A website whose claim to fame is being an unbiased fact finder dismisses inquiry with a relevancy wand.

  20. It looks like the whole Marxist infiltration of the USA school system is going to take a serious fall. The jig is up when it is stated as clearly as it is by a President of the USA. President Trump even mentioned Howard Zinn as one of the evil ones. Thank God. Whew!... Now the world can start becoming sane again. It will take a while to clean the mess up, but this particular Marxist project--anti-American indoctrination in the education system--that has lasted decades just took a fatal blow Michael

  21. Jules, If you get time, read Blood Pressure by Damon Runyon. When I first read it, I couldn't stop laughing. The setting is NYC of the 1930's, around Broadway. Gamblers, gangsters and people in that world. The link goes to an Australian site and says you are not supposed to read this if you are in the USA. Just click through if something similar for Canada appears and you can read it. This is one of the short stories the musical, Guys and Dolls, was based on. It has everything to do with what we are talking about here. Except a whole lot funnier. Michael

  23. Just in case there are still people left who think Soros-bashing is based on a myth that he funds violence, watch how criticizing him for funding the crap he now funds was used to shut down Newt Gingrich on Fox News. Here is Marie Harf (Obama insider) telling Newt: "George Soros doesn't need to be part of this conversation," as she nods her head in a school-marmish control freak manner. Newt then said, very slowly. Ohhh... kaaaay... it's verboten..." Here's a slightly longer version. I feel sorry for Harris Faulkner. It's obvious she is extremely uncomfortabl

  25. Yes, that's just the sort of pincer operation I mean. Add to teaching the young fake history and killing off the old who know or learned the real history: Teaching garbage methods of thinking and NOT teaching the Enlightenment values of rationality, objectivity, and judging the merits of an idea by its truth (the meaning of "truth" being changed to "social construct"). You have a populace who are the ignorant, defenseless, and even willing subjects of totalitarian rule. Ellen

  27. CM, Hi. I don't know how to answer this in a way that speaks for Objectivism per se, but I do know how I have come to grips with this seeming dilemma. One day I decided that there would be things in my lifetime I will never know, what with the universe being as big as it is, and as tiny as it can get. I accepted that and serenity appeared. And that made me rethink a few of my either-or values. (I used to be more of a Randian fundamentalist than I am now, although I still have a worldview formed by my contact with Rand's ideas.) One of the things I rethought was love.

  28. Yup. The revolution was organized. The bad guys even indoctrinated an entire generation of mostly white people right under everyone's noses. But they left out one critical thing. Footsoldiers. They had to import the other colors and persuasions for footsoldiers, and they didn't indoctrinate the corresponding black people already living here. They just had the government give some of them some shit and left them alone until voting time would come around. Now it's showtime, the lefties have set the revolution in motion with organized riots, and reality emerged in the form of

  29. Korben, You mean this one posted by James Woods? That has nothing to do with deepfake. It's made with two pictures mounted underneath an animated GIF overlay. This was probably one of those dorky smartphone apps for Instagram or something like that. A party app. It belongs to the same category as one of those cheesy large carnival paintings with the face cut out. You go behind and put your own face in the hole and someone takes a picture from the front. That makes you look (crudely look) like you are a cowboy or a character in a movie or something like that.

  30. This video isn't a deepfake video, why are you asking about this video? The twitter video posted earlier in this thread is the one I was talking about. Duh level? I looked for the original video and I couldn't find it, if it's out there then more power to whoever can dig it up---and golly, maybe that's why nobody has posted the original, who woulda thunkit? But what is your position about the twitter video? It's not a deepfake? Is it altered? Does it have artifacts make her appear strange? I'm asking because you compared the twitter video to a video from her youtube channel

  31. Jonathan, Rand certainly was thrilled when Alan Greenspan was called by president Gerald Ford. She went to Washington, took pictures with Ford and Greenspan and all. And she was calling him "The Undertaker" in private while cheering. (She also maintained friendship with him all the way up to her death.) So she was no stickler for personality quirks when someone defended America and capitalism, even if they worked in high places in the government. I can't say since she is dead, but in my gut, I feel she would have laughed off Trump's bluster. Maybe even made one of her glowing st

  32. David, I am not talking about me personally when I say I am not seen. I don't care if you see me, Micheal, or not (except as a friend. ) I am talking about two archetypes that have emerged during this election. 1. The Trump supporter, who has not been seen for decades, but is starting to be, albeit with great resistance and resentment. 2. Anti-Trump people of different stripes, mostly elite establishment types, but there are others. They have two characteristics in common other than a dislike (or hatred) of Trump. (a) They think Trump supporters are mentally suboptimal in s
