  1. "Vote Earth"

    Sorry - it just gets me so torqued to hear this endless barrage of mental vomit.
  2. "Vote Earth"

    You all did notice that spiffy web-site they advertised their bilge on? They don't seem to have any qualms about using the product of the mind in their attempt to destroy it. Perhaps a movement could be formed to utilize that "hour" to DOSA their sites and effectively "turn out their lights" - but I suppose that would be stooping to their level.
  3. "Vote Earth"

    Hey, if you want to tell these nazi's what you plan on doing, you can send comments here: Earth Hour Crapsite
  4. "Vote Earth"

    I pledge to burn used motor oil in my backyard and of course, cut a tree down with my chain saw.
  5. Viros and regulation of rural areas

    This is the reason I mentioned (in other posts) that the only way a group of thinking, reasonable individuals could exist freely today is if they were to personally have and control a weapon of such massive destructive properties that even the insane, power hungry governments would be hesitant to attempt anything against them. What puts Man above brute beasts (including those that take on human shape) is the ability to think, that ability alone is the only resource against government gone amok. When faced with an attack in the woods by, say a grizzly bear, you survive by out thinking the bear - I submit that is the only way we will ever win against the present day beasts that are running our government. The problem is they have the tools and weapons that thinkers have given them, so our only recourse is to have better tools.
  6. Good WSJ article advocating gold standard

    Thank you PhilO. My point is, that I, not they, will determine what actions I will or will not take, I will weigh their threats and their ability to act on them, and what action I will take. If I comply with their insidious demands it is because I value something even greater and am willing to pay even the price of the shame of a slave - but if I value my freedom above all else, then even the worse they can do to me will be worth it. That is the whole point - the ball is always in the court of the person who is willing to think.

    Ultimately, I do.
  8. Obama's brownshirt "volunteer" corps passes House

    This is the last straw. Anyone have a complete, up-to-date mailing list of the Congress (both houses) and any supporting/influential members, lobbyists, etc. so we can e-paper them with protests? Calling only goes so far. Also, I have heard that (at least in the past) that Washington considers an opinion expressed in a written, mailed envelope to represent the opinions of 10,000 persons who did not write. That could go a long way. This is perhaps the most insidious of Obama's, and the left's programs to date.
  9. Good WSJ article advocating gold standard

    let me be clear too: With respect to laws such as "the GIVE Act" referenced in another thread here:Obama's brownshirt "volunteer" corps passes House, flood your congressmen with PROTESTS! I want to say for the record, so that any governmental thug who happens to read it is clear: "I will not comply, neither I or my children." -David T. McKee
  10. Good WSJ article advocating gold standard

    True, however I think back to the pamphleteers of our Forefathers...
  11. Excellent little Java applets for math/science/engineering

    Awesome site PhilO! I have bookmarked it along with my other Java resources. For those of you that need to present complex data visually, may I recommend the Prefuse site: The Prefuse visualization toolkit
  12. Good WSJ article advocating gold standard

    Well then what do you suggest? Yes, we see from the past that this situation is not good, okay it is what it is..., a rational being does not sit, sour, and soak in self pity about what "might have been", but instead creates a plan, and then works that plan. Okay, my ideas may not be so great, I have not heard anyone else put out anything better... I am simply advocating planning for the worst, while hoping and working for the best. I most certainly do not want to have to build an underground "Ember" city, I don't want to have to face a gang of thugs - but I may have to do (or attempt) those things. If we are faced with a mob of unthinking people then what do we do as thinking people? If we are faced with a government of elitists thugs, what do we do as rational people? I for one, will do something to the best of my ability - I may fail...but I will not quit.
  13. Good WSJ article advocating gold standard

    I believe by "maintain a successful, independent life" what was meant was successful and independent "within the confines of a world gone mad". Obviously not ideal conditions, but I think with a group of like-minded individuals who have the intelligence to recognize that there are roving gangs of thugs, and "governmental" gangs of thugs, one could get by. Fire-power would be needed of course, and lets not forget that the government would also be gravely limited in its ability to enforce anything at this time as it too would be gravely damaged or even completely missing. Environmentalists will quickly become irrelevant when there is mass starvation and chaos in the streets.
  14. You used what??

    You have not really programmed a computer until you have loaded the accumulator via the front panel switches...
  15. The Good of Carrying Guns

    Agreed - except in the case of so-called "public property". And you are correct with regard to a privately owned University. I should have been clear about that point, I was speaking with regard to public places.
  16. Your Tax Dollars at Work

    What?!!? You mean to tell me that USA taxpayers can't get in on this giant banana! I feel appalled that Canada would have the audacity to fly a taxpayer funded banana over Texas (of all places) without my government spending several million dollars doing an environmental impact study first! I feel the strong need to wrap some islands in pink plastic!
  17. Jokes

    THE BEST Put Down LINE EVER For those that don't know him, Major General Peter Cosgrove is an "Australian treasure!" General Cosgrove was interviewed on the radio recently. You'll love his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children. Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you gotta love this! This is one of the best comeback lines of all time. It is a portion of an ABC interview between a female broadcaster and General Cosgrove who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military headquarters. FEMALE INTERVIEWER: So, General Cosgrove, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base? GENERAL COSGROVE: We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery and shooting. FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it? GENERAL COSGROVE: I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range. FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children? GENERAL COSGROVE: I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm. FEMALE INTERVIEWER: But you're equipping them to become violent killers. GENERAL COSGROVE: Well, Ma'am, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you? The radio went silent and the interview ended.
  18. The Messiah's incompetence is showing

    Pay no attention to the man behind the screen...or the teleprompter.
  19. Obama supports Free Market

    Perhaps the real Ellsworth is working "behind the scenes"...interesting thought, I wounder who it could be...
  20. 45 percent of world's wealth destroyed

    I hear you, same thing happened to me, my 401K is worth half what it was, same with my property and other assets. And it was not "destroyed", but stolen. From my pocket to that of (As you pointed out) "the people Schwartzman touts as our saviors, like Timothy Geithner" and their globalist friends. Hence my advocacy on another thread for "shrugging with attitude"
  21. The Messiah's Marxist buddies accused of MURDER!

    Yeah, but whatever you do, don't try to post this to any Wikipedia page! Wikipedia scrubs Obama eligibility
  22. "Going Galt"

    The atom bomb was somewhat tongue in cheek, although it certainly would serve as an effective deterrent: "I'm shrugging now...and leave me the hell alone, or else" Your describe shrugging as "removing the the sanction of the victim" - My initial point was that I was not only going to remove the sanction, but where necessary chop off the hand that reaches out to take it back from me. Perhaps it would be better called "shrugging with attitude".
  23. "Going Galt"

    Shrugging indeed can mean that, not only am I not going to cooperate with the governmental system per say and withdraw from it, but indeed can mean to actively fight against it with those same intellectual and material values. I don't see why you would think one could not go with the other - case in point from AS, Francisco.
  24. "Going Galt"

    There is a lot of talk about what shrugging could mean - let me bring up a more concrete example (no more colbalt atom bomb examples )... Today there is much discussion going on about the "Mileage Tax", a new scheme to tax productive people when they are driving their cars. Basically we are talking about a GPS based device attached to the car. Hacking, enclosing the device in a Faraday cage, etc. would be a form of "shrugging" against a blatantly evil scheme. In fact hacking the government and hamstringing it with it's own bloated regulations is both useful and entertaining. I guess you might call this "Monkey Wrench" shrugging - if done with intelligence and creativity it could be done is such a way as to demonstrate both the impotence of socialistic schemes and make you laugh.
  25. Obama supports Free Market

    I think he is a quintessential Elsworth Toohey. Barack Obama is Ellsworth Toohey and have for some time. A person who raises and spends 600 million dollars to become president has a plan.
