  1. No but I'm not nor ever have been full bore unregulated capitalism ala Libertarians. I'm realistic, we change our laws, policies and structures as time and conditions require. I'm for Realistic Capitalism, the free market and free enterprise is the most successful and efficient means of economic activity for the vast majority of the population of any group of people but people are inherently flawed and fallen, therefore a set of rules that are fixed but adjustable must be imposed, interpreted and enforced to deliver the maximum amount of benefit to the maximum amount of people while no
  2. You're both right, Conservatives are held to lower standards and Letists never encourage violence, use language that could be interpreted as violence approving or have used language that has degraded our political conversation. https://www.cnn.com/2018/10/10/politics/eric-holder-republicans-when-they-go-low/index.html http://victorhanson.com/wordpress/tag/punish-our-enemies/
  3. We're dancing around what needs to happen, basically that political persuasion should likely become a protected class on online social platforms that advertise themselves as open to all. If one is specifically and advertised as for one particular religious, ethnic or political persuasion then it could legally discriminate IMHO, but not others that are advertised for all. Eventually IMHO this is going to come to a head as Woke Capital is going to want to exclude the deplorables to crush them further: https://thefederalist.com/2021/01/11/big-corporate-uses-capitol-riots-to-push-commun
  4. Race riot seems worse to me as people physically harming each other based on skin color but I understand the outrage. I'm a Southerner, don't own a Confederate battle flag nor have displayed one and I didn't like it being in the US Capitol but keep it all in perspective. All of those guys could have been put down by the Capitol Police but weren't not because they were mainly white but because likely they had evacuated all the Reps and their staffs, they didn't want to kill a bunch of civilians even though they were acting like a-holes and I'm not sure if someone was thinking this strate
  5. The left is just wrong, I just like pointing it out. I've got no argument with someone from the left saying the same about the right. As far as making arguments to counter everyone on this forum not true. Right now I'll admit I'm running contrary to several active posters as they are to me, if we just come here to agree to each others views and agree with what others say then its not particularly interesting or worthy of anyone's attention. I'll make an argument every time against any point, thought, position or idea I don't agree with or like in a free forum where open discuss
  6. It may be the homework they turned in but it’s an F If he is unacceptable then why is this turd still on and his post still up? https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.breitbart.com/entertainment/2020/12/29/david-cross-defends-saying-i-want-blood-after-biden-called-for-healing-i-was-referring-to-menstrual-blood/amp/ You can’t play a fair game if the players aren’t treated equally Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Will respectfully disagree with you, if they cared so much about preventing users organizing violent activities, preventing organizing and the promotion of violent / false information they would have cracked down very hard sts during last summer's riots/lootings/assults on gov buildings, police departments, etc... but those brave SJWs were fighting systemic racism by looting the Walgreens, burning down a Wendy's, crashing thru private gates on to private property threatening home owners who were the wrong skin color so that's ok. As to restricting 1st amendment rights and platforms that
  8. No one but thru our everyday economic actions and choices we must support institutions that support the people and organizations that affirm and reflect our values, beliefs and existence You should not trade with your enemy beyond what is absolutely necessary Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. All true but it is sheer enraging lying hypocrisy of it all while using a law designed for a different purpose in frankly a different time (nascent beginning of widespread commercial and personal use of the internet) for a purpose no one would want have happen to them if the roles were reversed At some point those on the right must realize the current form of the left doesn’t believe they have a right to exist or to exist without being oppressed and attacked using any means at their disposal inside and outside the political sphere Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. If the Terms of Service and Community Standards were applied evenly and equally yes.. but as we see now in our Brave New World it is some rules for thee and little or different rules for me https://redstate.com/jeffc/2021/01/10/watch-high-profile-leftists-incite-violence-social-media-accounts-still-intact-n307606 Trump and other wealthy Nationalists, Populists, Patriots, etc... need to put their money where their mouth is and form a constellation of alternative technology, finance, retail, entertainment, telecommunications, services etc... to concentrate and strengthen the other side
  11. Yup, that's a viable COA. I'm a fan of platforms that can be manned or unmanned, if the risk is too great send it unmanned and hope for the best for the survivor. Unmanned could be autonomous or directed by an MCE if the electromagnetic environment allows.
  12. Enough politics and bullshit for the day, it's time to talk about planes the USAF will never get or will likely ever get built... Continuing the discussion on STOL or VTOL in this case and potential for a CSAR fixed wing platform capable of operation in contested airspace: https://newatlas.com/aircraft/samad-aerospace-q-starling-vtol-jet/ Reminds me of the Ryan Vertilift https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/9903/ryan-aeronautical-had-big-plans-for-the-vertifan-jump-jet Hypothetical profile for a CSAR mission in contested battlespace: Fly
  13. Probably so as to leading the turn with the new administration. If a somewhat sterile and strictly professional culture is what is required now due to where the overall culture is then so be it, state that plainly and clearly and don’t try to pretend your still keeping the old traditions and culture. It’s just awkward and depressing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. No - very powerful and important people made excuses, lied and shaded the truth about the violent, nihilistic and criminal behavior of their side https://www.google.com/amp/s/thehill.com/homenews/media/513902-cnn-ridiculed-for-fiery-but-mostly-peaceful-caption-with-video-of-burning%3famp https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.chicagotribune.com/columns/steve-chapman/ct-column-riots-minneapolis-police-george-floyd-chapman-20200529-fm2w4j3ntvcwnkjexceyhbnjmu-story.html%3foutputType=amp I don’t want a Reichstag Incident in America and I hope they go home Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Because if the son of George Bush got millions in shady business deals obviously peddling access and influence via family connections to powerful gov officials while simultaneously getting paid by a company in a foreign country in a business he knew nothing about the media, deep state and Democratic Party would have been cool with that too?
