Told a certain feathered animal years ago that the fed will never raise rates back even close to normal and it threw a hissy fit when faced with that assertion. The bond market will have to take over eventually to bring them back up.

You have to separate your emotions from logic and look who is actually breaking the law here. Trump may be a brash blowhard at times but the law was broken by top Dems in multiple ways showing they are the real dictators with no respect for the rule of law. Kekekek!

Not holding my breath since it's still two wings of the same bird. They do not like to go after each other.

Where is the oppression? I don't see any of it. I wish someone would oppress my rights, so that I could sue them and finally get rich.


Muh oppression is a leftoid delusion that leads to celebrating actual oppression elsewhere.

Jazz let me tell you something, Trump was spot on when he said, Americans are Dreamer too.

Liberals have lost their way don't you lecture me on Democrats and Liberalism. I grew in a Democrat household. There's nothing remotely resembles the Democrats I grew up hearing about. They stood for something and most of all stood for Americans. The Democrats, and the White Liberals that work in various tax paid positions, loathe absolutely loathe anything that resembles the America we grew up with.

I'll make no apologies for sticking by my country, because the Democrats are not the good guys anymore. They are the Commie invaders trying to drown the America that was built by my ancestors. They knife it, behead it, drown it, shoot it, and make no effort to hide their disdain for my country. And treat Patriotic people like they are Sinners and Freaks.

Good luck with that kind of Politics trying to juxtapose it onto the America psyche.

Yep. That is happening in other countries too. People denouncing the left they once grew up with and embraced, because it gave way to a cultural-marxist globalist agenda where nationalism and tribalism is outcast - or worse - criminalized. This is not just an American revolution, it is happening on many western countries. Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Hungary and Poland already sent the left packing.

This is a pointless discussion. As scoops pointed out, you have the RIGHT to comply. Of course you also have the right to demand a warrant, but fining people for their free will / choice of complying is not adding to liberty, it is taking away from it. This should be obvious. I am totally supportive if somebody is against a search demanding a warrant and then gets hurt/arrested in the process instead of the authorities getting a warrant if they needed to. But this is not what this asinine "law" is about. It is taking away the choice to comply. CA stupid.

government needs to cut it's fricken spending if it were to be fiscally conservative. I have never seen our government do that, there is no incentive to cut spending, and every agency and worthless bureaucrat wants more money and power.


I get it. But where are the Trump spending cuts? I wasn't impressed with Obama running up the debt, and I expected more from Trump. He should have cut spending first, and then cut taxes.


Agreed he should have done both. I hope the SNAP money conversion to proper food bill goes through so they stop buying booze, chips and Iphones but instead get healthy nutrition. And save billions for the taxpayer.

Somehow 60 years ago we knew inside ourselves that we weren't supposed to do something like this--it would never have crossed our minds. My father kept a loaded double barreled shotgun on top of the wardrobe--you could just see the butt sticking up. He'd take it out every once in awhile and fire it for practice. Just like the recent rapes among high school soccer teammates, it was something that never would have occurred to anyone back then. It's a growing barbarism that no laws or removal of guns can stop. Unless people once again become self-regulating, nothing is going to stop these things.


I'd have to agree with this.

I would like to know how many of those school shooters are on antidepressants, and if number of mass shootings correlate with needless medication of younger generation.


And this. SSRIs are a leading cause for such incidents as well as suicides, and their prescription has been on the rise

Also the culture of blaming others for your shortcomings. No easy fix here.

The problem has nothing to do with either party. MJ use is generally deemed safe, however SSRIs evoke homicidal and suicidal thoughts. Nobody on SSRis or derivatives should be allowed to purchase a gun. Their choice.

Looks like the shooter had an hour and ten minutes without any armed resistance (2:40 to 3:50):

https://www.news4jax.com/news/timeline-how-the-school-shooting-in-south-florida-unfolded

You can't prevent wacko kids from getting guns. If they are determined, they will get them.

What you can do is make their shooting spree damn short. We could learn a lot from the Israelis about this kind of thing.


That's true, there are plenty of incidents where armed citizens prevented mass shootings (question is by how much will any measure tip the numbers significantly if at all). The reality is that gun control will likely change nothing wrt the numbers (as you can get a gun everywhere like you can get drugs everywhere) but I also agree that you'd need much more security in schools to make them secure then. I'd focus on SSRIs, better cross-work of LEOs and schools etc. and much more security in the short-term. Maybe also overhaul checks on obtaining permits, esp. for semis.

Come to think of it, is it possible that many current societal ills are caused by anti-depressant medications? People, young and old, are dissatisfied with their lives. They take antidepressants to feel better, but does the medication also make many of them completely uncritical of themselves and their own actions? I could see this could lead to blaming everyone else for what is wrong, and then lead to rage and mass murder. It may also have the (milder) effect of people having a very high opinion of themselves and treat other people with little regard. Sort of a sociopathic effect caused by anti-depressants. And it does not just apply to men, in fact from what I see women have never been less critical of themselves than in current society.

How common is it to take anti-depressants? I personally know only one person that will admit to it, and he said he has since gotten off the meds but that it was difficult to quit. That's all the details I know. He seemed a bit hyper in 2016 -2...


This is already proven, not even a hypothesis anymore. SSRIs are known to cause homocidal and suicidal thoughts, esp. so with younger patients (< 25). If you know any of your friends taking them you can see that they initially take away the edge when heavily medicated but in the process cause heavy imbalances and eventually they lose their effectiveness and increase the condition, leading to manic depressive, homocidal and suicidal behavior. Yes you can observer that effect in women as well - while by nature less deadly - equally verbally and physically violent. Many of them do take these and they also make a good excuse for their shortcomings. If you have affected friends do not let them take SSRIs or let them get addicted to them.

MJ use is generally deemed safe, yes, but how on Earth can you honestly try and say “the problem has nothing to do with either party” when it’s fucking Republicans and their mental midget approach to governance where they must first ask Allah what he thinks? Come the fuck on

Did you even read the article?


The argument stands that the US always had that many guns but only recently there is an increase in shootings, coinciding with the increase of use of SSRIs. Most perps were on them at some point. So where's the fault of the Repubs here? I don't think the MJ discussion and this one are linked. Yeah they should and will give up their opposition to MJ. Many on the right already started endorsing it long ago. The rest will follow. Don't see a religious problem here.

Here's what I mean. Churches should be built and paid for by those who want to use it. Why make everyone pay for them through tax write offs?


Sure those write offs are debatable. However Christian church has done more good than bad hands down for society.

the distribution of preferences and abilities of men and women differ in part due to biological causes

At the level of a graduate engineer, no one will obtain the ability unless he/she has interest. That is, only an interested person would be motivated to put in the hours of study and practice needed to become an engineer. Far fewer women than men, even women of superior intellect, are attracted to STEM. Nothing to do with "inferiority."

Yep.

It is ironic that the Democrats, historically the party of the workers, have become without any doubt a tool of the elite to maintain their own righteous but wobbly sense of self-worth and that the Democrats, historically the party of the elite, now represent the working poor.


Could be. Bernie is more socialist as compared to Hillary. But chances of Bernie getting elected over Trump was not good. And the center wants the country to be more capitalistic as compared to socialist.

Also, education is the new currency to be at the top of the world. You can either let China or Germany take the lead or use our education system propel us to the top. While our primary educations leaves much to be desired , American universities are still considered elite and attract the best. No need to snark at them.


Thing is it's not that hard to reignite a nationalistic left looking out for the workers of its country. All it would take is one common sense charismatic emerging politician who also appeals to the heartland. Yet nobody in sight. Ditch identity politics, focus on real problems such as illegal immigration, taxes, healthcare etc.
