    This is silly and useless as a measure of anything of value. My musical taste is all over the board, from bluegrass to traditional Gaelic to Rush to Kid Rock to Bach to Vivaldi to Metallica to the Dropkick Murphys to Beethoven to Johnny Cash to Led Zepplin.
    It just makes no sense. Nobody listens to just one group or style.

    Don’t despair too much. I know some Millenials who are avid gun shooters and who hold libertarian/conservative views. Not Hipsters of course, but normal Millenials. My son is 18 in a week, he’s a Millenial, he owns several rifles and a shotgun, has a hatred of taxes and government control, and is full blown traditional in every respect. He has many friends, and many of them fit the same mold as him, why, there are even a non-trivial amount of hunters and fishermen in his posse.

    There is always hope.

    It must truly be painful to go through life fearing things. Fear is a mind killer. Be prepared for as much as you can, but don’t live in fear, just with reasonable respect of nature and human nature. For example, I don’t fear my house will burn down when I go to work, however I do carry insurance in case it ever does. It’s just a reasonable, logical thing to do.

    We’re all going to die when our time comes, not one minute sooner nor later. Living in fear thus is depriving yourself of fully enjoying life and the people you love in it. To hell with that.

    The reason they do not talk reasonably about inequality of pay or abuse against women is easy to discern when you use, well, reason. Inequality of pay is a bogus, made up thing with no bearing on reality, and abuse of women would then beg the question of abuse against men and the fact would come out that women are as abusive as men physically, they are simply given a free pass to not have it publicized.

    All of your deflection and refusal to acknowledge a wrong, doesn’t mean that you do not know, deep in your soul, that you are participating in a culture of evil.

    Exactly. Your post amply illustrates that third wave feminism doesn’t want equality, they want superiority and subsidy on the backs of men.

    They were raised by simpletons who taught them that respect is granted regardless of merit. They simply do not know that one cannot demand respect, one can only earn it through actions.

    These are very, very confused and quite likely mentally unbalanced people we’re dealing with here.

    Note how you DIDN’T address the article, rook?

    Ah, the idiocy known as feminism. A movement that is by its nature stripping everything feminine away from women by teaching them to imitate base blue collar men. It’s shocking that any woman buys into it, but hey, why think when you can go on feeeeeeeeelings, right?

    I keep hearing this fake 23% statistic about pay. I do wonder, what is the statistic of women who enter professions such as “coal miner” and “off shore rig drill worker”? They pay really well.

    Oh, wait, I think I see where the issue is located…

    Ordering me to report that I have firearms to the government, simply because I have children, is not “better regulations”.

  • [1] October 22, 2014 at 10:22am

    That’s because you lack intellectual nuance and perspective, as well as you have a specific agenda that prohibits you from seeing any viewpoint other than that which is handed to you by your socialist betters.

  • [2] October 22, 2014 at 10:01am

    That’s a lie. I used to think the same. A friend of mine, who used to post on this site, did a compiled spreadsheet of serial killers from Columbine forward. The majority of them were, well, minorities (not necessarily black though).

    The “white men are serial killers!” meme is spread by the msm in order to keep the image of “whitey is evil” fresh in everybody’s mind.

    Their incompetence knows no bounds.

    The hell you don’t. Who are you to determine when I need or don’t need a firearm, BryanB? If the place where the protest is occurring is not a prohibited carry location then a CHL holder can carry if he so wishes. Do not presume to dictate how others should exercise their rights.

    As to this Dem piece of debris, is anybody really surprised about this? And since when did cops give people a pass when they have a belief that the person has been drinking, and is armed? If I’m armed and the police believe that I have had alcohol I guarantee you that there would be more than a “don’t walk in the street” arrest.

    Not toeing your socialist party line does not make a news outlet a propaganda source.

    Go play in the road, leftist.

  • [4] October 21, 2014 at 3:07pm

    So if we are against any socialist program, we are in fact for other socialist programs?

    Logic fail, much?

    Mein Kampf wasn’t about white superiority, it was about German superiority. Do you not think that Hitler considered Slavs and Celts to be utterly inferior?

    Your obsession with Israel has got to be exhausting. I’ll cede that one can make many valid observations about bad things that Israel has done in the past, but there comes a point where one has to do more than focus exclusively on one topic.

    Try exploring new topics NIISSon.

  • [30] October 21, 2014 at 10:19am

    Agreed, the both of you. Everybody who makes that remark is either an utterly ignorant and illiterate fool, or a con-man.

    Christianity did not “get infected by individualism”, Christianity was the bulwark upon which *rational self-interest* (which does respect and pay mind to the community one lives in) was founded. The New Testament focused the reader on his individual salvation, and stressed that each must accept Jesus into his heart individually. It did not stress collective salvation, nor is it possible for a group to sin on your behalf (nor do good on your behalf) if you’ve not consented individually to that group’s actions.

    Were it not for Christianity, individualism would be a relic made up of small pieces and parts of ancient Germanic, Celtic and Hellenic cultures, and that not even vaguely as developed as today.

    What he outlines is called “atomism”, but he’s conflating it as individualism in order to slur against these united States. In truth, he’s railing against Christianity, he just hopes we’re culturally illiterate and don’t realize it.
