    We don’t want to be tracked by Google Analytics or anything else.
    The Blaze is one of the worst offenders regarding tracking and intrusive/annoying adverts.
    Crap, PORN sites aren’t this bad!
    Beck is a hypocrite. He denounces internet privacy invasions, yet his flagship website is one of the worst offenders on the internet!

    I’m done with The Blaze. I will no longer give such hypocrisy tacit approval by continuing to visit.

    I’ll check back in 6 months or so.

    Goodbye.

    The government didn’t have any problem with R/C model aircraft in the past because it was impractical bordering on impossible for R/C hobbyist model aircraft to record/transmit video.

    What the government fears is not the drone.

    It’s the video camera it carries.

    None of this was an issue until it became cheap & easy for anyone to own a tool that allows people to see what government is up to behind tall walls and show that recording to others.

    *That* is what government fears.

    The people they work for being able to check up on them and their activities, and hold them accountable. A nightmare for Statists.

    Here’s an idea. Herd/transport all the feral hogs in Texas down to the southern border into an area fenced off about 100 ft back north from, but open towards, Mexico’s border.

    Mexico wants to play border games? Let Mexico and the illegals talk it over with tens or even hundreds of thousands of feral hogs.

    I think that may curtail a large percentage of illegal aliens who simply walk across, and simultaneously put pressure on the Mexican government to start actually trying to halt the flood of illegal aliens across the border.

    Foo, I saw a traffic accident the other day.

    A Vespa hit a Prius at a traffic light.

    There was glitter *everywhere*!!

    As far as the up-armored car goes, I bet quite a few government officials have them, including those in the NSA. Maybe a similar but real-world test can be used to ascertain which top NSA officials are driving such vehicles?

    The problem is too much government, in this case, local municipal and city governments basically auctioning off local monopolies to cable/internet providers.

    If there were several competitors available, you could vote with your wallet over poor service. Said provider would be forced to improve service or lose customers until they eventually went belly-up if they failed to compete.

    The same holds true for other issues/behaviors/practices regarding that provider, like if they tried to double-dip, charging at both ends.

    There are also issues with backbone carriers and what have been referred to as “edge connections” between each other and with ISPs. That is beyond the scope of a single post, so I’d recommend doing some research there. It helps in understanding what the implications are of the things being proposed. (Pro Tip: It ain’t good!)

    Maybe I can put this into a form so “idiotic” that even the future-Darwin-Award-Winners, the PLO and their ilk, will grasp.

    It amazes me at times how Bill can be so oblivious and dismissive of the things Obama and the Left have done and are continuing to do to America. Talk about political thought/strategy circa 1975! That unfortunately seems to be where Bill is much of the time. The Normalcy Bias is strong with this one.

    Offtopic: Anyone having similar issues? Fox News video above plays fine, but the video at http://www.video.theblaze.com/video no longer works, when videos there used to play fine. All Flash/etc fully updated. Just stopped working the other day. Went to the page and nothing. Is the site being upgraded or something? It’d be nice if they cared enough to put some kind of notice up or something.

    Well, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

    Maybe a group of patriotic citizens, including military vets, should set up a citizen’s militia training camp right next door to the Muslim’s camp.

    Let’s see how long that Muslim training camp remains operational.

    If the government doesn’t interfere, I’m sure the Muslims will decide to vacate their training camp.

    If government *does* attempt to interfere and stop citizens from setting up a training camp, they will be forced to explain how it is that Muslims are allowed to maintain a paramilitary training camp but citizens may not set up any kind of camp.

    I wouldn’t go for any strolls through any parks, seeing as how Killary is mixed up in this.

    I’d choose to drive a 1970s-era vehicle without any computer systems as well.

    Far too many of the Clinton’s enemies (and even some supposed “friends) have mysteriously turned up dead at extremely convenient times for the Clintons.

    The best thing I can think of is to sit your kids down and teach them that if CPS or other people from the government try to talk to them and ask them questions without Mom and/or Dad there, to demand a lawyer before making any statements, no matter what the government people say to them or threaten them with. Teach them that it’s proper to demand their Constitutional Rights and to stick with the demands no matter what they are told by “authority” figures.

    It’s already court-decided legal precedent resulting from 1st & 4th Amendment cases dealing with minors in public school relating to free speech and searches, that minor children have all the Constitutional Rights of an adult. A position which the Progs themselves pushed at the time.

    Fine! Hoist them by their own petard! (Besides, it’s sooo deliciously-satisfying to watch them sputter in rage & frustration when their own hard-fought-for laws and legal precedents are thrown back in their faces!)

    If the child demands legal counsel, they’d better dang well get it, or that agency is going to be out a large sum of money and the individuals in charge possibly charged criminally under Federal civil rights laws!

    Teach them how to respond just like you would on how to respond to other dangers like deviants, molesters, and potential kidnappers.

    Government = “Bad touch”

    If they actually succeed in raising the government-mandated minimum wage, what they’ll end up with are-

    Automated fast-food Kiosks.

    And the Chinese will make them.

    They are already testing designs for the US market. I believe Japan, S. Korea, and possibly other Asian nations already have automated food kiosks in many cities.

    A fast-food job does not generate enough value to justify a level of compensation that even just an an individual, never mind a family, could live on.

    Could this move actually be a way to suppress/shut down the fast food industry and many other small businesses who depend on entry-level lower-wage workers?

    Much easier to stir up unrest and provoke violence among large numbers of unemployed and scared people. That is, if you wanted to, say, create a reason to declare a national emergency and state of martial law or similar “temporary” suspensions of civil rights and due process.

    Coming up next, Bozo The Clown will expound on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and how Jews and Muslims should think.

    I guess all that money and privilege must blind people from seeing their own ignorance & idiocy.

    “However, the group canceled the event after warnings that residents would bring their own weapons to the event if Open Carry appeared.”

    Was that a threat of armed violence? Let them come! Let them show their true colors.

    It’s a sure bet that any of SJL’s peeps that actually have the ****** to show up wouldn’t be able to hit the side of a barn from the inside, whereas I can guarantee the open-carry people can hit what they aim at.

    If you open-carry advocates back down and turn tail now, you might as well stop off at the gun store and sell all your firearms on the way home. They will have won.

    Has nobody considered the possibility of mounting a counter-protest to block these idiots from interfering with the unloading>

    If I were able, I’d be at one of these ports ahead of these idiots and be waiting for them. Is there nobody either able or WILLING to stand up to these anti-semitic haters?

    Well, LEOs would be even safer if they always dressed out for combat and patrolled in MRAPs and similar military vehicles. Let’s add checkpoints and travel permits while we’re at it.

    As I stated above, the civil rights riots of 1968 make this look like a schoolyard argument, and it was handled by police without all this military hardware.

    Honestly, if it were me out there, I’d just call in an airstrike before I rolled in in an Abrams carrying all the firepower and armor I could carry. That’s one of the reasons I’m not and should not be a police officer.

    Being a police officer means you agree to place yourself at risk of life and limb, and that you do not have the freedom to go full-combat-equipped.

    If you cannot enforce the law and maintain the peace with the tools of a police officer, you won’t be able to do it with the tools of a soldier.

    If you feel like you cannot fulfill the role of a police officer and/or refuse to expose yourself to the risks inherent in a non-militarized police force, then please stay the H311 away from law enforcement. You’re a danger to yourself, your fellow officers, and the general public. Not to mention contributing to the transformation of the US to a full police state and the destruction of Constitutional rights.

    By the way, those weapons are not “AR”s, those are modified M4s, a military infantry weapon capable of fully-automatic burst fire that is forbidden for the general public to possess. I’d prefer they used ARs.

    Oops!

    **Military weaponry and armored vehicles, along with other military assets like armed military combat helicopters and multiple-casualty battlefield weapons like anti-personnel grenades, etc. are *military* weapons designed to kill & destroy foreign enemies of the US, not enforce US domestic law.**

    Sorry, dunno how that bit at the end went missing!

  • [13] August 12, 2014 at 10:31pm

    @ Wild

    Protective gear is fine.

    Military weaponry and armored vehicles, along with other military assets like armed military combat helicopters and multiple-casualty battlefield weapons like anti-personnel grenades, etc.

    Title 18 US Code 1385 (also known as the Posse Comitatus Act) prohibits the use of the military for domestic enforcement. Turning the existing police into part of the US military by arming & equipping police to military occupation/domestic suppression levels is just as wrong as deploying the US Army/AF/Marines for law enforcement.

    I was around for the 1968 civil rights riots. They were bad in Detroit, far far *far* worse than this little dust-up. There were more people with guns back then as well, and far more fully-auto military weapons in regular people’s possession. The police used water cannons, tear-gas, billy clubs, MACE, and either a .38SP revolver or 12ga pump shotgun.

    No armored vehicles, pintel-mounted heavy machine guns, or multiple-casualty weapons.

    If you are unable to uphold the law with the tools of a policeman, you will be unable to do so with the tools of the warrior.

    You’ll just harm/kill more innocent people and help destroy a nation on your way to failing to do the very thing you try to justify military weapons for in the first place.

    I used to work for Harris Corp. I bet I could build something with the Stingray’s capabilities for a couple hundred dollars. Maybe I should build them and give them away for use by citizens against corrupt & criminal LEAs, TLAs, and government bureaucrats/politicians.

    Like the story of the Panopticon, make the power universal and available to everyone.
