2  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Re: Immigration issues - Mexican Constitution on: August 13, 2016, 04:17:23 PM
I've been going over the Mexican Constitution for some things concerning myself and my work here (the Mexican Constitution is rather sizeable).

Being that the bulk of illegal aliens in the United States of America are from Mexico, and "gringos" are often referred to as racists for attempting to enforce immigration law, it is pertinent.

Some key points:

Article 2 - specifically recognizes the rights of "indigenous peoples," but given that people with Spanish blood wrote the Constitution, proclaims Mexico as a "multicultural nation" and gives the people with Spanish blood and surnames, dominion in the same land that they took from the indigenous people.

Article 8- "Public functionaries and employees will respect the public exercise to their right to petition, as long as it is formulated in writing, in a peaceful and respectful manner. In political petitioning, only citizens of the republic have this right."

Article 9 - "Only citizens of the Republic may take part in the political affairs of the country."

Article 32 - "Mexicans shall have priority over foreigners under equality of circumstances for all classes of concessions and for all employment, positions, or commissions of the Government in which the status of citizenship is not indispensable."

Article 33 - "The Federal Executive shall have the exclusive power to compel any foreigner whose remaining he may deem inexpedient to abandon the national territory immediately and without the necessity of previous legal action." It also states: "Foreigners may not in any way participate in the political affairs of the country.

This is the Constitution for non Spanish speakers as translated by the most respected university in Mexico . UNAM

http://www.juridicas.unam.mx/infjur/leg/constmex/pdf/consting.pdf

It brings to light the blatant hypocrisy and effectively shuts off any argument that anyone from Mexico or any other Latin American country might use in order to attempt to justify illegal immigration.

Well, they are authentic socialists, as every worker's paradise has it's elites who live very well, despite the gulags, mass graves and starvation.

Hugo Chavez' daughter somehow became a multimillionaire. Must be from the success of Venezuela's economic model.

It's scientific!

I have some free time on my hands. You bring up an interesting point about old Hugo and socialists in general. I think I'm going to look into what the world's socialist leaders are worth tomorrow, just for the hell of it. I had no idea that Chavez' daughter was so successful. Venezuela's "successful" economic model. Best one I've heard all day.  grin grin grin

5  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / ABC News Live Poll on: August 12, 2016, 10:24:26 AM
I'm certain that ABC leans left, so where CNN and others are getting their numbers in favor of Hillary, I'd like to know.

Who are you Voting for?

Donald Trump (70%, 40,817 Votes)
Jill Stein (18%, 10,247 Votes)
Gary Johnson (7%, 4,176 Votes)
Hillary Clinton (5%, 2,780 Votes)
Darrell Castle (0%, 152 Votes)
Total Voters: 58,172

http://abcnewsgo.co/2016/08/abc-live-poll-who-are-you-voting-for/

This obviously won't account for voters who get "cold feet" come election day, but none of the other polls stating that Hillary is ahead account for that either. Polls can also easily be manipulated by only calling a small number of voters per state, and then calling in the conservative or liberal district one chooses. Online polls are open to everyone.

Just putting this here for everyone's entertainment.

Just because they structure the payoffs as to not be payoffs doesn't make it any less crooked.

Cattle futures!

I agree 100%. I was just looking into Mrs. Sanders' net worth and what she has done besides being let go from Burlington College after running it into the ground (maybe it wasn't her, but they did close less than 5 years after she left.


This article notes that Sanders' wife made about $160,000 a year running the college and that "virtually all of the couple’s assets are in Jane’s name, and they own a condo in D.C. and a rental property in Vermont." It is from February. Interestingly, the house in Maine that they would use to purchase the new home in Vermont is not listed. Many articles place Sanders' net worth between roughly 400K and 700K. They also fail to include his wife's earnings. Not bad for a pair of socialists.

Sanders' wife also justified the purchase of the house on the lake by stating that she had inherited a house in Maine that wasn't being used and used the proceeds from that to purchase the lake house in Vermont.

She purposely hides how much she is worth, Bernie purposely has most of the things in her name, and they're worth a lot more than they admit to.
http://fortune.com/2016/02/28/bernie-sanders-socialist-finances/

"Steady employment begins after the age of 39: In 1981, when Sanders won an election for the Mayor of Burlington, Vermont, the 39-year-old went on the public payroll — earning about $33,700 per year, according to Politico."

How one coverts that to 1.7 million dollars net worth at 74 years of age, only having worked full time for public service for 36 years, would be saving $48,571 per year since working regularly from the age of 39. His wife was making a lot of money, and I found this at Time's website "$1 Million-Plus Nest Egg" http://time.com/money/4235986/bernie-sanders-millionaire-finances/

Although Sanders and his wife’s joint tax return showed income of only a little more than $200,000 for 2014 — including his $174,000 salary," which mean that together, they were clocking her 160K (while she was at Burlington College) and his 174K (334K a year) the idea that they are socialists, and make that much off of "serving the public" is laughable.

In fairness to Bernie his net worth including real estate is around 1.7 million if this site is to be believed.  While obviously well off this is a pittance compared to many of the "insiders" in DC:

http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2016/04/17/what-is-bernie-sanders-net-worth.aspx

I will still never understand how someone accumulates 1.7 million doing nothing other than a lifetime of public service work, a carpentry job, and maybe some liberal arts 30 years ago.

La mordida!

Taking into consideration what CCP said, and having managed factories where many of my workers clocked about 65K with overtime, I haven't seen a single one of them become a millionaire. Not even one.

I'm going with what GM said on this.

That brand new, beach front, vacation home on the lake for 600K that he just bought probably has something to do with what I'm thinking. Yep... a man living modestly.

There's a Mexican general under fire right now for having two homes in Texas valued at about 1.5 million. It's raising some serious eyebrows. In the States, they don't even hide it.

Mexico does too. You're not voting here without your IFE (an ID from the Instituto Federal Electoral that EVERY Mexican is required to have specifically to combat voter fraud).

I'll add, that if you're a foreigner here, and so much as speak about Mexican politics, they can and will remove you from the country. That's why you never see any flags other than Mexican ones being flown here.

13  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Wikileaks 2016 Presidential Poll on: August 07, 2016, 04:42:17 PM
Wikileaks performed a poll with more than 117,000 people participating.

"While Trump scored 50% of the overall vote, Clinton won just 22%. Green Party candidate Jill Stein followed Clinton with 16% of the vote, and Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson came last with 12%."

http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2016/07/30/wikileaks-poll-117000-votes-trump-wins-with-50/

EDIT: The date from this poll is July 30th, 2016. Still, it speaks volumes as to what people think. Thus far, I am not aware of any media poll having Trump ahead by 28%, much less with the millenial +(wiki audience) crowd.

I haven't seen it mentioned here, so I'll bring it up.

Suppose that Russia has hacked Clinton. Suppose that they have something that Hillary really doesn't want out there, and that they use this to their advantage? How can anyone trust her with the presidency?

And, as soon as I posted this on facebook, they locked me out of my account for having @malware@ on my computer and to "fix" my computer, but my wife can get into her account no problem.

I thought, I can trust facebook, right? But I'm still not letting them into my computer to "fix" things.... so I investigate....

Facebook has recently been found to censor wikilinks as malware, but come to find, several users are having the same problem. How odd...

"Philosophy, literature, art, history and language give students a thorough understanding of how people document the human experience. Technology is a part of our human experience, not a replacement to it."

Good point Bigdog.  I would add that 'college degree equivalent' and 'graduate degree equivalent' can equal or surpass the value of the college degree.  Maybe organizations will come to recognize that. The academic material is available online at no charge, see MIT OCR and EDx.  The credential can cost a quarter million and up.  The hardest part is to get hired and up to speed with a company.  They need the credential and experience to justify the hire.  After that, key employees are known for their capabilities and achievements on the job, not their college, major or credential coming in.  Many entrepreneurs have also been able to get around traditional credentialing.  State licensing boards are constantly fighting the practice of entering a profession through an unconventional path.

The credential doesn't mean squat.

Results do though.

"Allen said he doesn’t think he has to justify himself to Trump, who has never spent time in Afghanistan or Iraq and has never served in the military."

I guess General Allen has no problem with Bill Clinton being a draft dodger.

Hillary never served either, but General Allen seems to think that "as commander in chief, she will defeat ISIS."

It must be all that experience she has landing under sniper fire is Bosnia.

Jewish Princeton Professor Emeritus on Russian US relations  was a guest on Smerconish on CNN, AND actually came out and agreed with Trump and disagreed with Clinton.   I thought ok, he is Jewish , he is from Princeton, he is a university professor and the odds are high he will bash Trump and pronounce Hillary the Queen,   
But no.  He was more neutral.  What a pleasant surprise.  And he bashed the media for jumping on Trump!!!!!!!
 Like I posted on another thread , why shouldn't we take another look at Nato?  At our relationship with Russia? 

This scholar certainly thinks this has validity:

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2016/07/30/russia_expert_stephen_cohen_trump_wants_to_stop_the_new_cold_war_but_the_america_media_just_doesnt_understand.html

Great article -

 "New York Times," which says Russian spies said to have hacked Clinton's bid...There is no evidence for that. None whatsoever. "
 Exactly. The media spits something out with ambiguous sources (not unlike people saying that ISIS agents are crossing the southern border....no hard witnessess), just take their word for it. I don't buy it.

"Putin, could do as he pleases, in that part of the world."
As opposed to the US doing whatever it wants in any part of the world with the sole exceptions of Russia, China and North Korea?

"We just say, oh, Trump wants to abandon NATO. "
I'm not seeing the problem with that at all. It should be applied to the UN as well.

Also, a bit more care in attacking Gen. Allen would have been nice-- especially when the Dems have the clip of him saying he "knows more than the generals" and of him touting the fact that he went to a military school.

No one is more supportive that the miltary than I am.


"Allen said he doesn’t think he has to justify himself to Trump, who has never spent time in Afghanistan or Iraq and has never served in the military."

General Allen also said, “We trust her judgment,” that “We know that she as no other knows how to use all instruments of American power — not just the military — to keep us all safe and free," and “She has been training for this moment for decades,” he said. “In the Senate, she worked across the aisle to support wounded warriors and our families. As president, she'll reform the VA, not privatize it. And as commander in chief, she will defeat ISIS.”

A few thoughts about that:

1.) Was hiring Wasserman Schultz the same day she was caught rigging elections "good judgement?"

2.) When she has been caught time and time again, attempting to disarm the US populace, does she really care about freedom?? That's laughable.

3.) As Commander in Chief, "she will defeat ISIS?" The US has arguably the most powerful military in the world. Desert Storm started in 1990. 9/11 was in 2001. The most powerful military in the world, and 15 years later, we're still over there pussyfooting around.

No disrespect at all for the great sacrifice of everyone that served, but just like Obama didn't get Osama, the men on the ground did, Clinton won't ever defeat ISIS, because she lacks the stomach (as do most Americans) to do what is necessary to defeat an ideology.

To date, the British, Indian, Soviet, and American militaries have all tasted Afghani defeat. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-south-asia-12024253

The only way to combat an ideology where the target has no fear of death due to what will happen to them in the hereafter AND are aggresively seeking expansion, due to the commandments of their religion, is genocide.

I've said this for years in regards to Islam, Putin just said it last week (again), “I Swear If They Bomb Russia, In Half An Hour Every Muslim Will Die” - Vladimir Putin (It's hard to find a mainstream link to that), but it's certainly the general mentality, as noted in the Beslan event where, On the third day of the standoff, Russian security forces stormed the building with the use of tanks, incendiary rockets and other heavy weapons. At least 330 hostages were killed, including 186 children, with a significant number of people injured and reported missing.

Trump was wrong in his criticism of the general, but the general is endorsing a fraud (God knows why), and that makes him a target.

If anything, Trump should have blamed Obama and by association, Hillary, for lacking the stomach to do what it takes, causing even more of America's finest their lives. I'm not the only one that has stated this. I'm pretty sure Schwarzkopf, Powell and even Petraeus have said the same thing, asking for more troops and to change the rules of engagement.

I'll add, that I DO NOT agree with Muslims entering military service in MY country, and I don't care who likes it. Anyone that has an issue with that can refer to the Fort Hood attack, and others. CAIR states that the attack "was not in keeping with Muslim teachings."

People underestimate the amount of people that do not want Muslims in the country. A quick glance at the list of Muslim terrorist attacks on wiki (only compiling data since 1980), is a damning one. (they failed to put in a spreadsheet for ease of counting, so, I took the time to do that - we cannot count the total dead because they used number such as "100+" *a liberal tactic I'm sure*) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Islamist_terrorist_attacks

Between 1980 and December 2001 - 58 attacks against civilians attributed to Islam (4685 dead)
2002 - 43 (821 dead, 2897+ wounded)
2003 - 19 (418 dead, 2321+ wounded)
2004 - 25 (1066 dead, 4016+ wounded)
2005 - 16 (348 dead, 1857+ wounded)
2006 - 8 (319 dead, 981 wounded)
2007 - 6 (621 estimated dead, 1730 estimated wounded)
2008 - 7 (350+ dead, 362+ wounded)
2009 - 4 (58 dead, 87+ wounded)
2010 - 17 (673+ dead, >1794 wounded)
2011 - 19 (765+ dead, 1700+ wounded)
2012 - 13 (788+ dead, 1961+ wounded)
2013 - 19 (768+ dead, 1839+ wounded)
2014 - 35 (2120+ dead, 1046+ wounded)
2015 - 116 (that isn't a typo and it's wikipedia's numbers) ODDLY this website, http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/attacks/attacks.aspx?Yr=2015 , took the time to do exactly what I'm doing right now and came up with DRASTICALLY different numbers, and not in Allah's favor.

2016 - 39 in the first half of the year. (Wikipedia didn't total them, so I did, and they have 1055+ dead so far, and who knows how many wounded).

I'll leave out the fact that those are only published incidents and numbers and anyone that has ever served in the military or police knows what that means.

Donald Trump is completely correct in his thoughts about Islam, he should never apologize for it, and people can say what they want, but when you have conservatively, 116 terror attacks in a year, 1000's of civilians dead, and Christians and Jews are nowhere to be found on that list in the quantities one certain religion is, people can phrase it any politically correct way they want... I won't.

America hasn't won the war on terror by design, and they know it. They are DYING to give the states away because it is one of two hurdles to a liberally run world government, brought to you by the central banking system.

My personal experience? We don't have any misconceptions about or enemies here. Obama, Feinstein, and Clinton would have us inviting them into our homes.... hell, they already send them weapons, why not feed them too?

Clinton and anyone supporting her, deserves every bad thing that is said about them.

Democrats With A Negative View of Clinton - Source The Wall Street Journal https://www.facebook.com/mrjohnson1126/posts/10207205469595295

https://m.reddit.com/r/jillstein/comments/4v9o7t/here_comes_jill_in_the_polls_nbcwallstreet/


How they'd vote:

Donald Trump - 29%
Hillary Clinton - 27%
Jill Stein - 22%
Gary Johnson - 9%

There's obviously 13% missing somewhere, but if we take Clinton's 34.43 million (staunch supporters), and split Bernie's 29.568 million to the above poll stats, we get:

Trump - 8.57 million + 61,000,000 base (based off of 2012 numbers) 69.57 million 54% of 128 million voter base
Clinton - 7.98 million + 34,430,000 (her share of the Clinton/Sanders split *staunch base) 42.41 million 33%
Stein - 6.5 million + 500,000 (her 2012 results) 7 million 5.4%
Johnson - 2.66 million - 1,270,000 (his 2012 results) 3.93 million 3.07%

13% missing of ticked off Clinton supporter votes = 3.84 million... which could shun the vote, or be dispersed amongst any candidate. 3% (I'm thinking Clinton will actually get most of these 3.8, putting her close to the 44% I had stated).

Obviously, I could be completely wrong, but I want to see how close I am when this is all over. I know most head to head polls have Hillary favored, but those polls are junk, because the election will not be a head to head race. We'll see.

Edit: Adding some poll results. CNN having Trump favored by 5 points surprises me. http://www.electionprojection.com/latest-polls/national-presidential-polls-trump-vs-clinton-vs-johnson-vs-stein.php

It is interesting to consider, in swing states : http://potus2016.org/swing-states-election-2016/

AZ, NM, CO, IA, WI, OH, PA, VA, NH, NC, GA, and FL....

That Sanders had huge support of 60% or more in states like Colorado and Wisconsin, winning both of those swing states and does surprisingly well against Clinton in several of the other swing states - 2016 primary race map - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democratic_Party_presidential_primaries,_2016#/media/File:Delegation_Vote,_2016_(Democratic_Party,_only_pledged_delegates).svg
carrying 30 to 40% of the vote in several of those states.

Sanders supporters don't even need to necessarily vote for Trump, Stein or Johnson. The mere act of staying home in several of these states, could floor Clinton fast.

What Trump I think likes about Putin is that he is a nationalist.. Russia first. 

And Trump is saying US first

I worked with some Russians who love Putin despite all the corruption, despite economic woes, why?


because he is a Russia first guy.

Wouldn't it be nice to have someone here who is in charge who feels the same way about the US.  Forget about all the phony Us flag waving and declarations on how great the US is the past staged few days.

And to have the Musllim father waving a small copy of the US Constitution around at a DNC convention is hypocracy beyond the pale.  Not for him personally but to do it as though the Democrats are Constitutionalists is just typical Clintoneasque BS.

Putin is Fantastic. I lived under him for a while. Great guy. No grey areas with him.

Trump didn't "ask" Russia to intervene in the elections.

He said; "“Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing."

That isn't "interveining." That is a truth that every American except those that have broken the law are interested in learning.

Also.... Mexico is actively campaigning against Trump, through Mexicans here and illegals in the States in an effort to sway Americans of Latino descent - we don't hear a peep in the news or here about that.

In closing, Trump's number of 47 to 40, is going to be Trump with 52% of the vote, Clinton will get 44%, based on the fact that Bernie was slightly behind Hillary with just under half the vote in polls before the emails were leaked.

It is obvious that not every Sander's voter will jump ship, but let's do some basic math for a moment... liberal polls have stated that they are likely to lose a mere 10% of Sander's supporters.

Obama had 66,000,000 voters
Romney had 61,000,000 voters (both figures rounded).
Voter turnout was at 126 million in 2012, down from the 131 million in the previous cycle. It stands to reason, with both HRC and Trump angering people severely, 131 million casting their ballots again is entirely reasonable and probable. I myself will be filling in an absentee ballot for Trump.
Most polls without any shenanigans show either party to be within a point or two (even today CNN admitted that "it was too close to call" in their poll, and we know how they do damage control for the Liberals so....

128/2 = 64 million (leaving Johnson and Stein out of it for the moment because we're factoring Sander's supporters). (Clinton 53.8 % Sanders 39.3 %) http://elections.huffingtonpost.com/pollster/2016-national-democratic-primary (which is pretty liberal and they know what they like)
HRC gets 34.43 million
Sanders gets 29.568 million (roughly).

If the liberals are admitting to a 10% loss of supporters, that's 3 million votes.
If other sources are correct, it could easily be as much as 15 million.

Most Sander's supporters that have left are voting for Jill Stein. Others are voting for Trump, just because they hate being cheated out of their voice.

Either way, if the 2012 results hold true, even using their 10% number (and not counting any Sander's supporters voting for trump, here's what that looks like:

Clinton - 62,000,000
Trump - 61,000,000 (assuming the loss is only 10%, not counting any votes in Trump's favor, assuming that wikileaks doesn't blast the Dems again, and not factoring in a Stein vote in all 50 States).

If Clinton's loss is 50% (and many think it may be just that), still not counting any votes for Trump, this is what that looks like:

Trump - 61,000,000
Clinton - 51,220,000 (giving every single missing vote to either Stein or Johnson) = Trump at 47% of 128 million, Clinton at 40% of 128 million (GC's numbers broken down)

Delving deeper, we know that many Sander's voters won't actually jump ship. I think the actual number is closer to 30% (one in three voters for Sanders) Which means, 10 million voters will either vote for Trump, Stein, or Johnson. If we assign half to Stein, and split the rest between Trump and Johnson, here what it looks like in closing:

Trump - 63,500,000
Clinton - 55,640,000
Stein - 5,469,000 (counting her .5 million from 2012)
Johnson - 3,775,000 (counting the 1.27 mil he had from 2012)

I stated that Trump would get 52% of the vote. With 63.5 million and a voter turnout of 128 milion, he'd have to be at 66.56 million (well within what he could reach with Sanders bailouts).

I stated that Hillary would be at 44% of the vote or 56.32 million voters of 128 million. Based on Barracks numbers of 66,000,000 in 2012, and a 1/3 to 1/2 of Sander's voters jumping ship, the empress could easily find herself 15 million votes short, putting her as low as 51,000,000, well within the target I have proposed.

Needless to say, these aren't electoral college votes, nor are they swing state votes.

1. Most Latinos already reside in Blue states, BUT.... they aren't interested in seeing other Mexicans other than their immediate family come and take their jobs.
2. States that have been blue could go red because of this, with purple states having an even higher turnover.
3. Trump won't get the Black vote, but at 12%-15% (19 million votes) of the population, and most based in Blue states, he doesn't need it.

Basically what I've come up with.

EDIT: It is also my basis behind stating that after two election cycles, we will indeed have a third party. One can laugh off .5 million votes or even 1.7 million votes, but when those numbers rise into the millions of votes, people start getting put on state ballots and invited to debates.

Like the monkey said when the man cut off his tail with an axe, "it won't be long now."

I do have one question though.... what's your issue with American citizens voting in their elections, as listed above (the felons)? They are American citizens last time I checked.
...

If losing your privilege to vote is one of the lawful penalties of being convicted of a felony or of certain crimes, then one has not fully paid his or her debt when released.  Has this particular penalty been struck down in any court as unconstitutional?  Oddly, it is put forward by Democrats not out of fairness but out of political advantage.  7 out of 10 felons register Democrat:  http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/jail-survey-nearly-34-felons-register-as-democrats/article/2541412

Interesting that you use the word "privilege." That's what your rights are, are they? "Privileges?"By the way, they've also shown that most wouldn't even bother voting, and this person typing this, would never vote Democrat.

By the way, they have laws against cruel and unusual punishment. Most people buy into that crap. I don't. Even arguing it or discussing it is ridiculous and leads no where.

I don't think I feel like asking your permission for my rights that YOU grant to no one, especially because you fear that it may not lead to the candidate of your choice being elected, and especially while you expect me to work and pay for it through taxes.

I think there was a war started over that once.

DDF see my post under electoral process about pro and cons of felon voting.  Your question is a good one.  Why should a felon not be able to vote once they have paid their "debt" to society?



I did see it. Unfortunately, there is not a single instance that I can think of where people are granted their freedom by the people that think they're superior, without massive conflict involved. They freed the lsaves. Look what that took.

I'll add, I read in interesting comment on there. that if you've ever driven while drinking, ever driven 15 miles over the speed limit (or anything else like that), you too are a felon that didn't get caught.

I'm not all that intereted in voting rights. I'm interested in full restoration of rights, without having to spend piles of cash that people don't have, in order to grant them that which apparently comes from a power greater than man (our rights).

Asking someone else's permission for your God given rights is just silly. If it is a case of someone committing a crime so grave (sexual, murder, treason), punish them accordingly, kill them, whatever, but don't paint them all with the same life sentence. You're just asking for a fight the moment you run across the right one, and God help people if they ever organize.

Unfortunately, in the real world, that presents some problems none of us want, but I understand it... both sides of it. not respecting someone else's rights is wrong 100% of the time.

People need to be more reasonable, and they almost never are, unless it costs them personally. That's the truth of it.

I'm no one's slave.

I'm curious as to why you feel you deserve a voice in your country, but they do not, especially when they're law abiding and pay taxes. The rights only apply to you per your perspective.... massah?

Cruz can't win.....

"Trump has won at least 159 delegates in Tuesday's contests. John Kasich has picked up at least 73 delegates — most of them for winning Ohio — while Ted Cruz has won at least 24 and Marco Rubio will get at least four.

There are still 107 delegates left to be allocated.

The overall race for delegates:

Trump: 619.

Cruz: 394.

Rubio: 167.

Kasich: 136.

It takes 1,237 delegates to win the Republican nomination for president."


The only way Cruz can even get on the ballot is for the RNC to steal the nomination from Trump, in which case.... the GOP will be sending a Clinton (God help us all), or a Communist (equally distasteful), to the Whitehouse.


I posted this a while ago. Trump will be the next president, or the GOP has to accept something even worse. The complete evisceration of the GOP party as we know it.

Pretty simple.

I hate being right and never listened too, but I'm used to it.

Here's another prediction:

Not only will Trump be the next president, but Sander's supporters (much more than the 10% reported in some polls), will be flocking to the Green Party (Jill Stein currently, unless Sanders rescinds his endorsement of Clinton, in which case, she'll cede the nomination to him) in droves. We will see three majority parties if Trump doesn't turn the States into a dictatorship, two election cycles from now.

With the difference bewteen Romney and Obama being 4,000,000 votes and Obama squeaking out the victory (assuming they didn't manipulate the vote *I'm pretty sure they did*), Clinton would have won this year in a 51/49 split. Now that she cannot count on Sander's supporters, some will vote for Trump, with a great number switching from blue to green.

Trump will win with 52% of the vote.

Clinton will get 44%.

The rest will be divided between Johnson and Stein, but with enough of an improvement to drive towards a three party political system.

It is noteable that the Democrats were busted with emails, but it is certain that the Republicans do it too, as mentioned by GM earlier, "The RNC will be more rigged than a North Korean" election and indeed, they tried.

This is my prediction. Clinton cannot win it. Trump will. Latinos in substantial numbers, mostly reside in states that are already blue. Having lived in Mexico in the status that I have here, I am priivy to certain things.... such as.... Latinos in the States won't admit it, but they report the majority of illegals there, they don't llike Mexicans taking what they view to be "their" jobs, and Mexicans in particular KNOW that the Mexican government helps illegals get there and the Mexicans in the States legally, have zero interest in seeing other Mexicans come other than immediate family members. O lot of them support Trump secretly.

You should see the line to get visas here. I'll take a picture of it tomorrow. Maybe GM can help me figure out how to post a photo of it.

By the way. The wife became a newscaster today for one of the national television stations. That will provide more insight no doubt.

The way it is.

Ambushes usually hold the upper hand. Long guns vs. handguns, the advantage goes to long guns.

After working here, i-ve almost lost any fear that I may have had previously when having ceramic plates and being armed with a FAL, Negev, ARX160, M-4, etc. A glock at that point is a pea shooter. Anyone facing someone armed witht he aforementioned, doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell, and even less, when ambushed, especially if range and accuracy, as well as amount of rounds down range are taken into acount.

As for anyone carrying long rifles or anything else, I'm wary of placing any limits, because when limits are allowed (felons for example), then all kinds of laws can be allowed, as with Mr. Loomis' comments today (someone who supposedly swore to protect the Constitution), talking about suspending YOUR rights, because HE thinks it's a good idea.

Cynthia and I had a shootout at our house here, with cartel hitmen at the door (10 dead). That is the second time I have had something like that happen at my house, and both times, lucky we didn't wind up hurt or worse. Any legislation regarding one's right to self defense is a bad idea and should NEVER be respected, especially when the ones pushing the laws, demand that they need to be armed, but others don't. I'll never agree with that. Not ever. I want every single one of you armed, even if you're mentally unstable, because my safety is MY responsibility, not YOURS. Your safety is YOUR responsibility, and there is NO ONE that can protect you....ever.

Edit: To be fair, I admit that I am a total anarchist and that most people don't want true freedom, as it is rather chaotic, so I will always be in the minority view on this. The elctricity went out here today. I liked it. A lot of people did not. I missed a few hours on the computer and know where to get my own water if I really had to. Big whoop. I'm hoping this all goes downhill and back a couple of centuries. It would be good for all of us. BLM would quit bitching and either work to feed themselves or die, as would every other non hacker.

http://edition.cnn.com/2016/07/17/politics/cleveland-police-baton-rouge-security-open-carry/

They cannot suspend Constitutional rights without serious consequences. Also, if they do not suspend them, they open the door for violence (which is present with out without suspending rights).

I'll add, that the only thing it will take to start a serious, not easily remedied low scale war in the US, is for someone to start killing people at the Republican convention.

We have arrived at the fork in the road. There is no avoiding it. Theynow are willing to take anyone's right to carry, or risk mass casualties.

Also, the police (for the most part) are poorly trained and lack any realworld experience unless they are prior military, proof of that being a reservist schooling 12 police officers in Dallas, a Marine veteran, schooling 7 officers in Baton Rouge.

To be clear, I'm not cheerleading for BLM. In fact, I loathe them. I am on the side of COMPLETE freedom, but it is also clear, that the police and government cannot win this. Anyone doubting that should study the Vietnam war, the US campaign in Iraq and especially Afghanistan, or read on the Soviet-Afghani conflict, in each case, a larger, wealthier, stronger opponent, defeated by a smaller force, with less training, finances, or inferior weapons.. Guerrilla wars cannot be won. That is where this all goes.

For the record, Kasich has denied the idea:

"On Sunday afternoon, Stephen Loomis, the president of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association, said that Mr. Kasich should temporarily suspend “open carry” for the sake of security. Mr. Loomis said in an interview with CNN that he did not care “if it’s constitutional or not.”
Mr. Kasich’s office rejected the idea as legally impossible."
38  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Science, Culture, & Humanities / Re: Education, Job training on: July 15, 2016, 11:25:00 PM
I think a post disappeared here.  I wanted to jump back in and say great story DDF(?).  It brought up many questions about companies, the training of their employees, the difficulty of relocating and considerations that go way beyond wage rates.

It did disappear. I deleted it. I don't want the details out there.

Moving companies abroad doesn't work as smoothly as people think it does. I know this from having done it.

Primary challenges that will crush relocation efforts:

1.) The lack of an established industry being in the target location (if it was there, they'd being putting something where competitors already have a head start. If it isn't there, they have to train people from scratch or import workers, neither option is viable, especially with high tech stuff).

2.) There are ITAR issues. In fact, often times, companies cannot even send blueprints or other sensitive information to themselves, once it is out of the country, which means that blueprints or other things need to have their dimensions changed and the accompanying documents transferred into "work instructions," with any relevant techincal information removed from the documents. This will, in some cases, make doing certain work outside of the US impossible.

3.) There are on-site inspections from the customers. In order to maintain AS9100 certifications (you aren't flying anything without this certification), the work instructions have to initially be transferred from the parent language to create work instructions that eliminate sensitive information, then transferred from the target language back to the parent language, noting each difference between that and the parent language. Each work instruction must be a controlled process, complete with revision control, and with each revision change, it needs to be certified by Quality, Operations, and Engineering departments. The COLLOSSAL amount of paperwork this creates costs A LOT!!!! I personally, hate it. HATE IT. So inefficient.

4.) Cultural differences. I won't get into this, but let's just say, some people that are used to a more laid back lifestyle, make less for a reason. They don't get jack s..t done.

5.) Initial workers are likely to be college graduates lacking real world experience due to the lack of skilled workers. The moment these graduates have an ounce of experience, they're off and looking for another place (or country), where they will make more than the 16,000 pesos a month they make as a fully degreed engineer. This creates a dependency on experienced floor personnel, that also, will leave, the moment they get 10 pesos a day more, and moving half a country away to make it (I've seen it happen more than once and it stings), just to make 8000 pesos a month. The US will NEVER overcome this because in order to do so, the target countries would have to have decades of experience, and if they had that, the workers would be worth more, which would bring in more money and work, which would better the economy, which would make moving the companies there unfeasible from an economic standpoint. The ONLY exception to this are fully automated factories or factories that are manual, easily trained work types, escaping for tax and labor reasons. Everything else will fail.

6.) Most importantly, and by far the biggest inhibitor, is the fact that goods produced in a weaker economy, but where the desired market is in a stronger economy, (in order to maximize profits) creates nightmares with; loss of immediate corporate control of everything in regards to the product, skyrockets logistical costs, and sends lead time through the roof, especially when the raw materials to produce products are strictly controlled.

Let's give an example of what I just stated.

Boeing wants to sell Iran (for example) airplanes, so they'll sign a contract for millions of dollars (if the customer were the US government, what I am about to describe could be even worse in terms of dollars, and include having the military take control of your factory to insure THEIR product delivery). What the signed contract will generate is a certain build rate per month, in order to meet their contractual obligations. If everything is an existing model airplane currently being built, all of the necessary quality inspection planning, blueprint revisions, work instructions, raw material requirements, etc, have already been generated and proven....if not, there is MUCH more work to be done, but to keep this easy, let's move past the paperwork part.

Purchasing will place an order for all of the materials needed to build the required number of aircraft per month. Titanium for example (of the necessary grade... 5553, Ti 6Al-4V, whatever (each have different tooling requirements due to modes of elasticity and the tooling needs to be ordered ahead of time too), this titanium almost always comes from Russia.... steel forgings, Austria, etc....and all of this needs to be ordered well in advance, flown to the States, inspected, trucked to Mexico, machined, sent back to the States, further machine perhaps (remember the part about ITAR regulations?), assembled, inspected, shipped to Boeing ON TIME, put on the plane and assembled, and if you're A DAY late on that part or build assembly Boeing WILL fine you a million or so for stopping their line, PER day. That's a lot to get right just in order to save a few dollars an hour on labor and taxes. It in many cases, is proving to not be worth it.

The US is safe as far as some industries are concerned.

As crazy as people think I am, I was sent abroad after the initial team had failed, to start up a $60,000,000 dollar aerospace facility, for a company that I worked for, for 8 years in the function of Manager of Machining Operations and Manager of Engineering, before leaving to work for the Mexican government. I know quite a bit about the subject. I have personally seen, multimillion dollar facilities shut down within months of operating in other countries, specifically due to the challenges that I have outlined above.

EDIT: Just to be a jerk, and being that the the tread is regarding education, I did this with a 9th grade education and a GED from the Hall of Justice, everything else, including the languages involved, I learned at home in my spare time, and set sales, quality and production records, proof being, I'm not known for being charming, but am known for results, hence the 8 years in until I decided that I wanted to do something more interesting for a living.

Was talking with Cynthia this morning. A member of the government here is actively campaigning, for immigrants in the States, to not support Trump. It's a fact. It's happening. Cynthia had included that fact in a news story that she just wrote and the owner took it out, for a few reasons. One reason is to be respectful of American politics, but the other reason might be to avoid American press from getting their hands on that. They would have a field day with it.


I have mixed feelings about it. I would die for the Mexican flag and people. That cannot be argued. I proven it far too many times. Having said that, I also have no political voice here, nor should I. I should accept Mexico as it is, or I should leave, because the people that were born here have a right to live as they wish excluding outside interference.


It is true that Mexico is attempting to campaign against Trump, which is blatantly hypocritical, because they don't allow it here, and they are involving themselves in foreign politics. The reason I have mixed feelings is because the money that people send back here matters. It matters because the poverty here would be even greater than it is currently, and having come to know Mexicans (not Latinos, but the people here), individually one cannot help but care for them. They have given me so much; love, opportunities that even my own government would not give to me.... the truly are a magnificent people as a whole.


The difficulty lies in the fact that I am a hypocrite, because I truly believe in national sovereignity, as does Mexico, and does the US, and many other individuals, and still, if I had to help someone better their life, maybe bending the rules, even though I myself follow them in the case of Cynthia and I, I would. How can one not help someone that legitimately is attempting to do nothing other than feed themselves? At the same time, how can one help everyone that needs help, without risking that which their own family needs to survive? Additionally, Mexicans have a right to their own land, as do Whites, and while it is obvious that Blacks and Latinos also inhabit the US, racism, "institutional racism" specifically, is always levied at Whites in particular, which is wholly unfair, if not just completely ignorant.


Many of us have grown up together in mixed communities. Texas is a great example of that, where Whites, Latinos, and Blacks have existed together for centuries, and while Latinos and Whites get along for the most part, the stain of slavery remains an excuse to many, as does the vitriol hatred that exists because of it.


Where do we go from here? No one woke up this morning and paid someone else's household bills, there are people of every color that make far more than anyone reading this ever will, and we sit here and fight amongst ourselves... to what end? How do we all fix this? How do any of us cease being a hypocrite, especially when we want to do the humanitarian thing, but also safeguard our own welfare as well? There really isn't very much racism. It's more often than not, people (of all colors) either being greedy, or people of all colors having the need to eat, and wanting to protect the security of their own family and themselves. That's what it is. How do we fix it?

The thought and thread had escaped me, especially the part where the guy mounted a pistol on a drone.

Obama built this.

Yes he did. I would have so much preferred Alan West.

The thing that pops into my mind now that this has happened though is this (people won't like it):

If a thug (a trained one), wanted to arm themselves, getting a small weapon from an officer wouldn't present too much of a challenge, and then using that weapon, to get a more powerful weapon/s.......which brings me to this -

Suppose thugs got their hands on a robot.... and had mastery of explosives (which ironically, one of the shooters in Dallas last night did have)....

How would one defend against that?

That's what I'm pondering today...... defense against robots. It's a good question. One that I'll bet most of us haven't thought of.
