A Boy and His Dog: The Israeli tactic of hitting a riot leader in the lungs with a .22 is unlikely to be legal, but the police really do need a medium-distance stun weapon to neutralize anyone wearing head-to-toe black before they start burning things. Either that or hit them with indelible paint in exposed areas so they’re easy to pick out later.
Alrenous: The best part is DC voted something like 93% Hillary, so those smashed windows are almost certainly democrat windows. I do hope they continue long enough to get the report of the ‘demonstrator̵ 7; saying, “hehe we’re smashing shops…oh wait that’s my shop.”
David Foster: Sam J…”I notice a problem in “If there were a company making super-charged monopoly profits, bankers would naturally invest in a competitor.” No they just buy the company and continue to stick the public.” But it doesn’t really work that way. The people who own the company that is making ‘supercharge profits’ KNOW that they are making supercharged profits, and this knowledge will be reflected in the stock price or the private market value of the company.
Steve Johnson: “As Roosevelt put it to Congress when announcing a far-reaching assault on monopolies in 1938: “The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism.”” Ha! So everything for the state, nothing outside the state is how to oppose fascism – got it.
Sam J.: I like Camille Paglia. She’s a Feminist and a Lesbian, but she doesn’t hate Men, or I don’t get that vibe from her at all. Most Feminists today hate Men.
Sam J.: This is a really, really good essay. It really brings things into focus. I notice a problem in “If there were a company making super-charged monopoly profits, bankers would naturally invest in a competitor.” No they just buy the company and continue to stick the public. Here’s another: “A lack of investment capital caused a lack of goods and services…”. Well, in the bank bail out we know that the banks got $16 Trillion, and some people have estimated $29...
Sam J.: “Thanks to trust built up between the team and the chimps, the team could safely track and video the groups – even during conflict, observing at close quarters what was happening.” There’s no way you could get me out in the woods with a troupe of wild Chimps. Those things are fiendishly strong and are known to attack people. There’s been quite a few gruesome attacks by “tame” Chimps. Here‘s one done by our loving brothers.
Bruce: Left-liberals have successfully fought to lower American prevailing wages for a half century. Their main weapon is the thought-crime accusation. No ‘populist soul’ imaginable could survive in any group doing this for a half-century. Why is Trump a Nazi? Because he wants a higher prevailing wage in America. If he gives up on this he will get strange new respect. He is an ex-D-party guy who ran a 90s Dick Gephart campaign, he supports Planned Parenthood, he’s not everyone’s...
Adar: PTSD as understood in part because of the stress as induced by chemicals flowing in the human body that ordinarily are not present. ONLY begin to flow during a time of great stress or danger. As in mortal combat. Soldier’s heart during the American Civil War. Young and robust young men just collapse dead for inexplicable reasons. Probably too much chemicals flowing like adrenaline that overwhelm the heart muscles.
Calvin: If you want to live in a safe community in the United States I am told to find a community where the predominant population is Japanese-American. For a long time the Chinese-American was the richest group in America but now supplanted by the Japanese-American ethnicity. Law-abiding citizens however are not all wealthy citizens.
