"As GM reminds us, the Chinese appear to have the capacity to simply shut our grid down."


We too can shut down theirs I believe but the consequences for us would be many, many, many times worse.

I prefer the party to be for everyone although I don't mind if he includes the "middle class" as part of everyone.  I don't know what to make of the term "worker's party".  Not good.  Sounds like Lenin:

Deputies seek marijuana thieves in home invasion
3 men sought in La Plata County crime

A home invasion eerily similar to the one that occurred Tuesday in Durango was reported a week earlier in La Plata County, law enforcement said Thursday.

In last week’s incident, three men reportedly entered a home in the 800 block of La Posta Road (County Road 213) south of Durango and stole $16,000 to $18,000 worth of marijuana, said Lt. Dan Bender, spokesman with the La Plata County Sheriff’s Office.

Upon entering the house, the suspects said they were Drug Enforcement Administration agents, handcuffed the two occupants, put pillow cases over their heads and released pepper spray, Bender said.

The robbers made a clean getaway.

“We have no suspect information at this time,” he said.

The residents were in legal possession of the marijuana, Bender said, suggesting they had a license of some kind. Efforts to reach the county Thursday for information about marijuana licenses that have been issued in that area were unsuccessful.

The victims, who were not injured, reported the incident at 3:37 a.m. Tuesday, May 17 – eight minutes earlier than this week’s home invasion and robbery, which was reported at 3:45 a.m. Tuesday.

Law enforcement officials don’t believe the incidents are connected.

“Even though there are some similarities, there’s no connection between the two cases,” Bender said.

In this week’s incident, three men entered a home in the SkyRidge subdivision, used zip ties to restrain the occupants, and planned to steal a “large amount” of marijuana, according to the Durango Police Department.

Something went wrong, and one of the suspects shot Samuel Xarius Gordon, 20, once in the abdomen. He died from his injuries.

Police found at least 10 pounds of marijuana inside the house.

Four suspects, including a getaway driver, were stopped and arrested while leaving the scene. They are being held on suspicion of first-degree murder.

The robbers from last week’s home invasion remain at large.

The Sheriff’s Office declined to release further information, saying the case remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 247-1112.

Re-posting this with greater detail.  I think this is important!  Two countries went different directions economically and we have results to compare.  Not all other things are equal, Chile has a population 17 million, Venezuela 30 million, but they have conducted a pretty good experiment.  Chile started much poorer and socialist, and are now freer, richer and healthier.  If the socialist country was outperforming the freer country, you can bet we'd be hearing about it!

5 Ways Capitalist Chile is Much Better Than Socialist Venezuela

May 24, 2016
The story of Chile’s success starts in the mid-1970s, when Chile’s military government abandoned socialism and started to implement economic reforms.
In 2013, Chile was the world’s 10th freest economy.
Venezuela declined from being the world’s 10th freest economy in 1975 to being the world’s least free economy in 2013 (other than North Korea).

1. As economic freedom increased, so did income per capita (adjusted for inflation and purchasing power parity), which rose from being 31 percent of that in Venezuela to being 138 percent of that in Venezuela. Between 1975 and 2015, the Chilean economy grew by 287 percent. Venezuela’s shrunk by 12 percent.

2. As its economy expanded, so did Chile’s ability to provide good health care for its people. In 1975, Chile’s infant mortality rate was 33 percent higher than Venezuela’s. In 2015, almost twice as many infants died in Venezuela as those who died in Chile.

3. With declining infant mortality and improving standard of living came a steady increase in life expectancy. In 1975, Venezuelans lived longer than Chileans. In 2014, a typical Chilean lived over 7 years longer than the average citizen of the Bolivarian Republic.

4. Moreover, more Chileans of both sexes survive to old age than they do in Venezuela. As they enter their retirement, the people of Chile enjoy a private social security system that was put into place by Cato’s distinguished senior fellow Jose Pinera. The system generates an average return of 10 percent per year (rather than the paltry 2 percent generated by the state-run social security system in the United States).

5. Last, but not least, as the people of Chile grew richer, they started demanding more say in the running of their country. Starting in the late 1980s, the military gradually and peacefully handed power over to democratically-elected representatives. In Venezuela, the opposite has happened. As failure of socialism became more apparent, the government had to resort to ever more repressive measures in order to keep itself in power—just as Friedrich Hayek predicted.

I didn't know Type 2 Diabetes in rats was a major issue.  wink

Let's hope our speedy, streamlined, patient health oriented FDA makes this available to humans as well!

There is a place where you can leave a message with the order.  Explain to my wife Cindy, and email me at so you and I can arrange a mutually convenient time.

I have been on this reservation.  It is a VERY low population density place with no signs of man at all most of the time as one drives along , , , though I did see a drunken Indian (please forgive the stereotype, but it is the fact here) hit and run by a car.  I saw an owl, several coyotes, eagles, and tons of prairie dogs.

Anyway, an IDEAL place for smuggling and given the narcos credo of "Plata o plomo?" (Meaning "silver or lead" i.e. Take the money or we kill you) I can't picture anyone giving the slightest of resistance.

Trust me, there is a reason the stereotype exists. See it on a constant basis.
