Night number one of the RNC went down without a hitch. No BLM or Liberal protestors running rampant.

Amazing how well behaved people are when EVERYONE is armed.

Seems to me that being a psycho and being a radical Islamic terrorist are not mutually exclusive conditions.

No, indeed they are not. Remember, if you die a shaheed, all sins are wiped clean and you proceed directly to paradise.

There is no way to control someone that has made peace with the fact that they will die. The problem is, those people are growing in number.

Keeping them out of your country is a good start.

Agree 100%.

That still doesn't solve the domestic, multicultural problem. People simply do not ave the same values, and people on both sides of that have ceased valueing life because they know that it's cheap.

What to do with them? It isn't just fringe people either. It is people on both sides of the law.... both actively speaking about how people on the other side of the law should be killed, depending on who they are or what they've done. Violence begets violence. Always has, always will.

Theeconomy is one of the best ways to solve this.... People becoming rich goes a long way in quieting that masses.

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. Nothing bad in that.

Very impressive.  I agree.   Initiative and "can do attitude", is more often then not better, then an education in a person that has neither.
You are very entrepreneurial . Like the people on Shark Tank.  Instead of sitting at home blaming others they go out and work hard to get ahead.

6  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Re: Stephen Loomis Calls For the Suspension of Constitutional Gun Rights on: July 17, 2016, 06:00:20 PM
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."
7  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. More often than not, people will tell you that you can't do something (like own firearms for example, be a government agent, etc.) You can do whatever you damn well want to.... education is just another excuse people put on themselves. It's all bullshit.

I was surprised that they hadn't done something like this. Anytime someone is willing to die with sdomething like that, they're trying to send a message. Shooting someone these days  isn't nearly terrific enough (even children expect worse from their video games).

"Ban all of them and we will learn which ones we missed, maybe serial beheadings with a kitchen knife, ban that too."

China has had mass stabbings by adherents to the religion of peace. China does try to restrict access to knives. It doesn't work, funny enough.

Restricting anything will never work. Some people will not be controlled. Death sentences will not stop them, because they are prepared to die, and they are growing in number.

Oddly enough, one of the best places to get weapons, is by taking them from the people that have them, even if it is the military or police. Everything has a soft spot.

It makes everyone being responsible for their own saftey all that much more relevant.

By the way, anyone halfway worth their salt, already has a handwritten list, of Black Panther Party Huey P. Newton gun club jerks, with their addresses, written down somewhere. Weapons laws? That's funny.

First time using an explosive device, but I believe that bots armed with firearms have been used before, though I can't cite a case off the top of my head.

http://www.jack-donovan.com/axis/2011/03/violence-is-golden/

The article is mostly accurate.

Some people have always intuitively known this. I'd add "The cop leaned over and said to the spindly kid, “do you have any doubt in your mind about whether or not I could break your arms and take that book away from you if I felt like it?” I have a doubt, because I'd kill someone (using weapons) that attempted to harm me. If the kid had pulled out a pistol and shot the officer, he would have answered the question of "or else what?" for himself. People don't like that, because it challenges the place they have obtained for themselves within society, but it is true.

To me, everyone should be their own protector, stupid and a holes should be allowed to die off through their own demise.

Good article.

Enforce the rule of law, which most certainly includes defending our borders and deporting those who are here illegally.  With this in place, it will be time to amend the rules.  America is an unusually kind, forgiving, and generous country.


I agree 100%.

I do think (especially in the age of Facebook), that individuals and that sovereign entities involving themselves in the sovereign politics of another nation, especially when they don't allow it themselves should be addressed though. That's out of bounds.
16  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Mexican Campaigning Against Trump in the US on: July 09, 2016, 12:58:11 PM
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?

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.

The video I saw of a suspect engaging a DPD officer and killing him looked to me someone trained in CQB. So the military background isn't a surprise.

Most definitely.

I'm trying to come back and fix things so that I can work undercover there, and I'm not being a jerk saying this, because it's the truth and it will save lives. There are a LOT of people who think they're hard targets, and they're not... at all. I'm not  hard target. No one is.

People really need to rethink their training and change their mentality. Mexico has made that obvious as hell to me. Nothing worse than thinking you're invulnerable or "Operator as Fuck" when you're not, and even if you are, you're not the only one. None of us are.

Interesting to note a couple of things:

1. The perp was the first one where explosives were used to dispatch him. They couldn't safely get to him due to the structure being used (very good planning and tactics on the suspect's part).

2. People online are calling this a victory. How so?

This was a heavy loss and a GD shame.

I'll end with, this entire mess starts right from the top. Comey coming right out and slamming Clinton, Gowdy having it repeated to him, and not a single person in Congress does a GD thing about it.... The US is going to be no different than where I live and work shortly, because people put up with this from politicians.

Sometimes in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another. It is high time to declare our personal independence from any remnant of obligation to those who have spit upon the rule of law. We owe them nothing - not respect, not loyalty, not obedience.

Think about it. If you are out driving at 3 a.m., do you stop at a stop sign when there’s no one coming? Of course you do. You don’t need a cop to be there to make you stop. You do it voluntarily because this is America and America is a country where obeying the law is the right thing to do because the law was justly made and is justly applied. Or it used to be.

The law mattered. It applied equally to everyone. We demanded that it did, all of us – politicians, the media, and regular citizens. Oh, there were mistakes and miscarriages of justice but they weren’t common and they weren’t celebrated – they were universally reviled. And, more importantly, they weren’t part and parcel of the ideology of one particular party. There was once a time where you could imagine a Democrat scandal where the media actually called for the head of the Democrat instead of deploying to cover it up.

People assumed that the law mattered, that the same rules applied to everyone. That duly enacted laws would be enforced equally until repealed. That the Constitution set the foundation and that its guarantees would be honored even if we disliked the result in a particular case. But that’s not our country today.

CARTOONS | STEVE BREEN
VIEW CARTOON
The idea of the rule of law today is a lie. There is no law. There is no justice. There are only lies.

Hillary Clinton is manifestly guilty of multiple felonies. Her fans deny it half-heartedly, but mostly out of habit – in the end, it’s fine with them if she’s a felon. They don’t care. It’s just some law. What’s the big deal? It doesn’t matter that anyone else would be in jail right now for doing a fraction of what she did. But the law is not important. Justice is not important.

The attorney general secretly canoodles with the husband of the subject of criminal investigation by her own department and the president, the enforcer of our laws, shrugs. The media, the challenger of the powerful, smirks. They rub our noses in their contempt for the law. And by doing so, demonstrate their contempt for us.

Only power matters, and Hillary stands ready to accumulate more power on their behalf so their oaths, their alleged principles, their duty to the country – all of it goes out the window. But it’s much worse than just one scandal that seems not to scandalize anyone in the elite. Just read the Declaration of Independence – it’s almost like those dead white Christian male proto-NRA members foresaw and cataloged the myriad oppressions of liberalism’s current junior varsity tyranny.

There is one law for them, and another for us. Sanctuary cities? Obama’s immigration orders? If you conservatives can play by the rules and pass your laws, then we liberals will just not enforce them. You don’t get the benefit of the laws you like. We get the benefit of the ones we do, though. Not you. Too bad, rubes.

So if you are still obeying the law when you don’t absolutely have to, when there isn’t some government enforcer with a gun lurking right there to make you, aren’t you kind of a sucker?

Don’t you feel foolish, like you’re the only one who didn’t get the memo that it’s every man/woman/non-binary entity for his/her/its self?

Who is standing against this? Not the judges. The Constitution? Meh. Why should their personal agendas be constrained by some sort of foundational document? Judges find rights that don’t appear in the text and gut ones that do. Just ask a married gay guy in Los Angeles who can’t carry a concealed weapons to protect himself from [OMITTED] radicals.

The politicians won’t stand against this. The Democrats support allowing the government to jail people for criticizing politicians and clamor to take away citizens’ rights merely because some government flunky has put their name on a list. Their “minority report” on Benghazi is an attack on Trump, and to them the idea of congressional oversight of a Democrat official whose incompetence put four Americans in the ground is not merely illegitimate; it’s a joke.

Is the media standing against this, those sainted watchdogs protecting us from the powerful? Don’t make me laugh.

What do these moral abortions have in common? Short term political gain over principle. These people are so used to the good life that a society’s reflexive reliance on the principle of the rule of law brings that they think they can undermine it with impunity. Oh it’s no big deal if we do this, they reason. Everyone else will keep playing by the rules, right? Everything will be fine even as we score in the short term.

The Romans had principles for a while. Then they got tempted to abandon principle for – wait for it – short term political gain. Then they got Caesar. Then the emperors. Then the barbarians. And then the Dark Ages. But hey, we’re much smarter and more sophisticated than the Romans, who were so dumb they didn’t even know that gender is a matter of choice. Our civilization is permanent and indestructible – it’s not like we are threatened by barbarians who want to come massacre us.

Oh, wait. The last words of some of these people to their radical Muslim killers before they are beheaded will be, “Please remember me as not being Islamaphobic! And sorry about the Crusades!”

There used to be a social contract requiring that our government treat us all equally within the scope of the Constitution and defend us, and in return we would recognize the legitimacy of its laws and defend it when in need. But that contract has been breached. We are not all equal before the law. Our constitutional rights are not being upheld. We are not being defended – hell, we normals get blamed every time some Seventh Century savage goes on a kill spree. Yet we’re still supposed to keep going along as if everything is cool, obeying the law, subsidizing the elite with our taxes, taking their abuse. We’ve been evicted by the landlord but he still wants us to pay him rent.

Now it seems we actually have a new social contract – do what we say and don’t resist, and in return we’ll abuse you, lie about you, take your money, and look down upon you in contempt. What a bargain!

It’s not a social contract anymore – American society today is a suicide pact we never agreed to and yet we’re expected to go first.

I say “No.”

We owe them nothing - not respect, not loyalty, not obedience. Nothing.

We make it easy for them by going along. We make it simple by defaulting to the old rules. But there are no rules anymore, certainly none that morally bind us once we are outside the presence of some government worker with a gun to force our compliance. There is only will and power and we must rediscover our own. If there is no cop sitting right there, then there is nothing to make you stop at that stop sign tonight.

They don’t realize that by rejecting the rule of law, they have set us free. We are independent. We owe them nothing - not respect, not loyalty, not obedience. But with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we will still mutually pledge those who have earned our loyalty with their adherence to the rule of law, our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

We are a nation of laws for most of us but at the top wealthiest and connected we are a nation of lawyers:

Sorry....no longer interested in who they're electing.

I just, not five minutes ago, did this:

Just called Congressman Gowdy's office (202-225-6030), stating that:
"I would like it brought to the floor, that I want a state set aside for Americans, where we can go and start a sovereign nation, where a rule of law will apply to us all, and not just for the peasants. That the fact that there are two sets of laws, one for yourselves, and one for the common man foregoes entirely the rule of law. The fact that Comey and Lynch have completely failed to apply that law, when they have already tried and convicted others for lesser and same offenses is insufferable and will not be tolerated."
"Anne" replied that "I can certainly understand your frustration," to which I cut her off and stated"
"No ma'am, I have been respectful, and am not interested in your excuses. I want the message that I just conveyed to you, conveyed to Congressman Gowdy. You have already shown us who you are."

I also just called Texas Governor Greg Abbot as well, stating precisely the same thing, verbatim.

It's a person off of 4chan.org (a hacker chat sight) stating that they are an FBI analyst and the converstation that ensued yesterday.

Good article. I have to say, I've met several hitmen in person, even looked them in their eyes, unhandcuffed in their prison cells, alone, with his cellie present, and the blackness in their eyes. Not the type of people anyone would pick for president, so when there is an overwhelming consensus that Clinton has people killed:

" this is not the kind of case a reasonable prosecutor would make. Of course it isn't -- not if that prosecutor wants to both keep his job and stay above ground."

What in the fk is she doing as the nominee?

Patraeus got off with a 100 K fine.  Which for him is NOTHING.  He is already serving on multiple boards raking in millions.

 I am also 100% convinced he got off so easy because they needed to clear the deck for Clintons excusal.  Couldn't have him get serious punishment and then not do same for her.  

Two years of probation, $100,000 fine, and losing your career is a hell of a lot more than Clinton got.... That train just keeps rolling. Interesting to note, the CNN Liberal cheerleaders reference in their video of the "special treatment" Patraeus received.

Would someone please find and post here all the various cases of other people who HAVE been prosecuted for such things and for less?

Thank you-- I'm looking to write the rant from hell on all of this.


Patraeus, Snowden, Assange,Deutch, Berger, and more here:

http://phys.org/news/2016-01-federal-cases.html

and more here, this link being particularly interesting because Comey himself is involved, as is Holder:

https://www.fbi.gov/news/pressrel/press-releases/former-cia-officer-convicted-for-unauthorized-disclosure-of-national-defense-information-and-obstruction-of-justice

"Jeffrey Alexander Sterling, 47, of O’Fallon, Missouri, was convicted today in the Eastern District of Virginia of six counts of unauthorized disclosure of national defense information, and one count each of unlawful retention of national defense information, unauthorized conveyance of government property and obstruction of justice. Sterling was indicted on Dec. 22, 2010, and arrested on Jan. 6, 2011. Sentencing is scheduled for April 24, 2015."

This link here cites several cases and is especially good because it notes the year, administration and outcome of the case and highlights the glaring hypocrisy of this administration (11 separate cases noted):

"Do as I say, not as I do."

From a personal standpoint, I've struggled for more than 20 years now to do the right thing, to serve, to be the best I can be, and still be 2nd class, and to see this mockery from the highest offices, weapons given to cartel hitmen from Holder and other agents, and God knows what else, and we're supposed to respect that? Play by the rules?

Seriously? To that point, he hadn't been violent.... and we're concerned with anger now?

I'm angry.... I'm angry at being called racist every time I disagree with something, even though I'm not racist. I loathe liberals, but from a cultural perspective... I don't think (personally) that we belong under the same flag. I'm angry that there is a person in the Whitehouse and tons of nonhackers telling me that I have to buy insurance. Freedom? Whatever happened to that?

"Tolerate" an "angry" guy?

2. Should we really be worried about what career politicians want? (To me, career politicians are the problem.... look no further than Hilary....party is irrelevant).

Whether we like it or not we are with either him or Hillary.  I would pick him over her.  I think some on the right may not just sit back and let her take over hoping everything will crash and burn leaving the door open for a real conservative in 4 to 8 years.   I don't wish for that. 

Exactly so.... and I do.

I know what my answer is...  It's never too late and if you're letting someone tell you it is, those people need to go. Just the way it is. Oddly, you never hear these types of things happening in other more colourful countries, because they'll kill you or deport you....take your pick. The US should be no different.
