Ever Wonder How This Could Happen?

     Right Now... It is LEGAL (buying and owning a .50 caliber rifle and military ammo)
right up to the moment
you pull the trigger.
That's how the 2nd Amendment is currently enforced.

WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?


For $10,000 (almost) anybody can buy a 50 cal. rifle with armor-piercing  incendiary rounds to shoot an airport fuel storage tank or an airplane  just taking off.


NEVER MIND:"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State,..." ... the important thing is to allow gun manufacturers to sell any gun that's not a "machine gun" to practically everybody. And it's still legal to buy a bump stock and  turn your semi- into a full-automatic; i.e. a machine gun.  SO SAYETH THE NRA and Congress. 
Warning!  Political Statement!!
Republicans stole the Second Amendment. Over the course of 30 years, the right waged a war on political, legal, and academic fronts to redefine the 2nd Amendment, contrary to history, text, and precedent, as cr…

GUN TALK

All the Rage These Days (For a few days "until this one blows over")
A friend of mine wrote a column about Occam's Razor. In it he "simplified" the liberal/progressive gun regulation position like this:
- - - - - - - - "Since this shooting (Parkland), I've once again heard from non-gun owning friends of mine that have proposed that the first and best solution is for America to rid itself of all of its 300 million plus guns. They say that by doing so we will eliminate any future shootings of any kind."

I whupped up a response. Here 'tis, for your dining and dancing pleasure:

You say some of your “non-gun owning friends” think: " the first and best solution is for America to rid itself of all of its 300 million plus guns.” What wildly radical friends you have. Australians? I don’t want to be tarred with that brush. It sounds suspiciously like the “they’re coming to get your guns” (probably in black helicopters) fear meme from some of the Alex J…

Lay Out the Proof, Profs It's obviously true. Prove it!




Hey incontrovertible academic researchers, QUICK interview several thousand consistent Democrat voters ...  

...who stayed home and did not vote in 2016, ask them why. 

Then run correlations between what they say and the lies the Russian trolls were telling  about Hillary.

Prove - at the incontrovertible level that...

... THE ELECTION WAS TIPPED TO TRUMP BY THE RUSSIANS.
You owe it to America to prove this point.

These Examples from the L.A. Times, an Important Target for the Russians SUPER       LIES
Well written, Big Lie posts in "Comments" sections
These from the story about the testimony today that Russians are continuing their propaganda invasion of America. Testimony from America's top Intelligence Directors. Tues Feb 13, 2018 - Senate Intelligence Committee:

BIG LIE/COUNTER ATTACK TECHNIQUE: Flat denial. Accusations against our truth tellers. Full counter-attack on the U.S.:  "We aren't guilty, YOU are guilty." (Note, this is the same general technique President Trump uses when he doesn't like some commentary on him.)

How Stupid Did You Say?

Publications Compete To Call Trump's "Infrastructure Plan" Stupid  How Disappointed Can a Nation Be?


Trump's infrastructure plan isn't a plan. It's a fantasy Trump Infrastructure Plan Would Pay For A Fraction Of Investment
Trump’s Infrastructure Plan
Is Great Unless You Want an Actually  functioning 
Infrastructure

And from way back in 2016President Trump's Backassward Infrastructure Idea

Why in holy heck can't we just do this right?

THOSE OLYMPIC COOPERATORS

I've Been Telling You and Telling You... Russia, Iran, China, North Korea and a bunch of others are all over the Net
They are in your Twitter feed, your Facebook pages, your Instagrams and favorite sub-Reddits. They write many of the comments in the "Comments" sections of your favorite news and opinion sites. they sell you things on Amazon and the auction sites. They traffic in your financial data stolen from Equifax.   You know all that, of course. 
Here's a fine piece of journalism from a credible source about the strange variation on the cyber wars as practiced by North Korea. Even their highest class hackers are the slaves of the regime.
There are no strong borders in the cybersphere. Mostly no borders at all. Darn Fern'ers are swarming around us like mosquitoes at Texas summer sundown. The more we educate ourselves about this, the more we can watch our (and each other's) back.

MY PASSION, AS PERHAPS YOU GATHER, IS THE POLLUTION OF "COMMENTS."The big …
