    The obvious question is if he’s guilty.

    With so much sabotaging of computers by Democrats, ex-wives, etc., it’s easy for hackers to put stuff in computers.

    That might explain why Oregon and Washington drivers for at least 3 decades have speeded up when someone starts to pass them. I’ve not seen that elsewhere.

    Another common one in Oregon and Washington is for a driver to pass everyone, then slow down. Then to gun the motor when the string starts to pass them.

    Weavers are the most dangerous people on the road. On I-5 it’s “standard” for weavers to be inches from the bumper ahead and behind. If any maneuver’s required, at least three cars are immediately toast.

    Lot of people over 65 are hotrods. Back in the 1980s it was a different story.

    I haven’t seen a preponderance of any group in recent years be jerks and drive in the left or center lanes below the limit. Old, young, middle-aged, cars, trucks, pickups, etc.

    Back when I worked in northern California in the early 2000s, it was a different story. It was mainly trucks trying to pass each other while going up Siskiyou summit. I think they got a kick out of impeding traffic, or they wouldn’t do it on both lanes and the emergency lane. Three trucks slowly passing each other for 6 miles going up while driving 40 in a 65, then 55 road was quite common. Could have been ticket city, but neither CHP nor OSP could be bothered to ticket them.

    re: spravin

    “which as most people know are not treated safely or respectfully on the road because they’re smaller and don’t have a ton of metal wrapped around them. ”

    I’d say quite the opposite. When someone’s driving 20 over the limit, it’s a motorcycle. Same with a person who doesn’t signal, then gets bent out of shape because the other drivers too him at his word. One of the common maneuvers is to ignore the turn signal of someone changing lanes a couple of blocks ahead, gun the motor to come alongside and then it’s hoped the driver saw the motorcycle and stop changing lanes.

    It’s extremely rare in the west to have a car-motorcycle accident that wasn’t the motorcyclist’s fault.

    One wonders how many drivers die at the hands of a big gulp. Back before cupholders finally became drink-friendly, the stupid things would consistently lose drinks, whether small or large, even on mild curves in the road.

    When the stupid thing decided to fly into the floor, I would have to force myself to not instantly lean over and grab the thing.

    Because of that reflex, I wonder how many people don’t think, grab for the drink, and go off the road.

    Re: todd invb

    A relative was driving I-5 and didn’t want to stop at a rest area. Used an empty big gulp cup to go. Then he flipped the liquid out the window, keeping a hold on the cup. And saw the windshield wipers go on behind him. Apparently the car behind was a lot closer than he’d figured. (Tailgating).

    One time we were driving back from camping in the Ochocos. He was tailgating me and I went around a corner. Fresh cowpies around the corner on the gravel road. Too late to slow down. SPLAT.

    A pie lofted up and over the car and into his. SPLAT.

    Ooops.

    “As such, it didn’t take long for me to lose interest in trying to date and to just concentrate on my career and having fun with my friends when I wasn’t working. Indeed, it wasn’t many years after that, that I lost interest in dating altogether. It just got old being ignored or turned down for not being “evil enough.”

    Imagine if those girls had found their “ideal” men, though, and what disasters that would have been?”

    Heck, when I was in college again a year or two after that, one woman about ten years older than me asked why I didn’t have a girlfriend “as social as I was”. Well, you have to have women willing to date outside that 11% or so that they were chasing. Good grief, when BSU broke up (2 women, 20 men), I went to check the other Christian group on campus, the Navigators. I was going to go in when a troup of women, all carrying babies, went in. Not one had a wedding ring. Told me all I needed to know right there: the Emergent Church is predominantly such women, because morality is ignored and immoral lifestyles pushed. I turned around and did without a Christan group the rest of my time at university.

    sorry XGP.

    When I saw your photo, I assumed you were female, quite forgetting the term “wife” when I read your comment. No, I understand why you didn’t marry. when it’s a 4 to 1 ratio among GenX Christians by gender nationally, it meant 60% didn’t marry if they wanted a Christian woman.

    Anyway, for those who are older or younger than GenX who somehow didn’t notice what went on in this country, I’ll finish the story from the book;

    Pt. 2 :”While I wasn’t a football player or similar type like the ones wanting a perfect body sought, since I was working with heavy samples of concrete, weighing from 26 to 120 lbs, I’d put on considerable muscle on that job, despite years of biking long distance and people telling me I needed to gain weight. It didn’t take long to realize that, like in other Oregon Christian groups, the girls simply didn’t want Christian guys when all was said and done, like so many others in ministries I’d seen. They wanted guys to “party” with, to lead them into evil, to help them feel good about doing wrong things like sleeping around before marriage, partying, drugs and such. (Or to at least help rationalize doing wrong, with the usual excuses that go with that. I don’t if the Lord is impressed by excuses of “my date led me into sin” when the guy was picked by her and she made the decisions to do wrong.) “TBC

    Nationally, approximately 80% of believers in GenX are men. Why have you not chosen one of the multitude of men who have never had girlfriends (about 50% of GenX men).

    You remind me of the Chrisian groups of college age I volunteered in or took part in from 1987 to 1999 in differnet cities. Here in the northwest the typical ratio was about 10% women: 90% men.

    Also from NWF: “And so these women have wasted 15 to 25 years where they could have been happily married.

    Case in point: when I worked for an engineering outfit in northern Oregon, a number of times I went to a church in the Salem area with friends because there were actually a few women my age there (early 20s then), something rarely found in the Portland area where I worked. About 30% of the group was girls, which was much higher than any other college-age ministry I’d ever seen to that point. Trouble was, despite being in church, most of the girls were looking for the athlete or the party animal and not for the Christian guy. I was actually told that they were looking for “athletes” and so not to bother, but I thought I’d try, anyway. (The person who told me was right, of course.)

    While I wasn’t a football player or similar type like the ones wanting a perfect body sought, since I was working with heavy samples of concrete, weighing from 26 to 120 lbs, I’d put on considerable muscle on that job, despite years” TBC

    Pt 5

    “Why? Because they apparently don’t truly believe these things are wrong. At least not for women. If you don’t believe that, then look at the grocery checkout counter and leaf through a couple of the aforementioned “women’s magazines.” The popular ones are far more graphic than most men’s girly magazines. I put it to you: which sticks in the mind: a sexually-explicit story or a nude photo? For most guys, photos are out of sight, out of mind. Can’t say that for women’s pornography, can you? A story sticks in the mind. When was the last time a Feminist group complained about graphic “women’s magazines” or romance novels?

    Romance novels are typically graphic sex. Mostly consumed by women. An “exciting” story tends to stay in the mind. Such books exposed GenX young women to ideas and practices that they might never have thought of on their own, or may not have decided to do. Such books, along with the media, frequently portrayed as “normal” the idea of having sex with strangers and/or persons hardly known and it is perhaps not surprising that so many GenX adopted that viewpoint when what they read was combined with Feminist teachings in school and elsewhere.

    Feminist, thy name is hypocrite. And not even particularly good acting at that as it’s easily seen through.

    “And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” —Matthew 24:51 (KJV)”

    Pt 4

    “So, whereas most men have that inbuilt squeamishness of going to some place that sells sex stuff like videos or other goop, now they just buy DVDs and such on the net. A further reason for the popularity of internet pornography is that so many men now are hitting middle age that have no experience with women except as their catspaws. No marriages, no girlfriends, nothing. They have friends, work and the other normal social connections, but it’s just not the same. (Although they have often had to make greater social connections to community and church than many men of prior generations because of the lack of a family.) Internet pornography is a bigger temptation for those men because of that unfilled need for wife and family. It makes a rotten substitute for those husband-wife relationships that so many GenX women had no interest in, but when a person literally has nothing, sometimes anything is better.

    Women account for much of the ownership of porn companies and the production of pornography today, both nationally and internationally. It wasn’t long ago that both Penthouse and Playboy were both CEO’d by women, for example.

    Then, too, Feminists have never seemed to have a problem with porn designed for women. Be it video, websites, women’s magazines, romance novels, etc..” TBC

    Pt 3
    “and you can see the evidence of that in the city you live in, year after year— but the national “statistics” and claims by various groups don’t reflect that. All you hear from the media and “studies” is men do this and men do that. You wonder what is going on.

    I have no statistics on GenX, but I’d be very shocked indeed if GenX women didn’t purchase and/or view more visual-type porn than men, not merely the books and magazines that so many of them read from junior high or high school on. VHS rental was big when I was in junior high, high school and college and it was possible to watch the young women go into the walled off or curtained off sections of video rental places. It was too common not to notice.

    If I may digress a moment, the internet, in at least one way, was a very bad thing for men as most men wouldn’t be caught dead going into a porn shop. How many wives and girlfriends practically have had to practically drag their men into those places when the women wanted to go there? (It’s pretty obvious why men don’t like those places, but as a general group, from the late Boomers through GenX don’t seem to have that moral restriction, for whatever reason.) We guys tend to be squeamish about such— or perhaps revolted would be the word— but most women today don’t seem to have that.

    But the internet? The internet is anonymous. So, whereas most men have that” TBC

    Pt2.

    “”Women’s magazines” for many years have typically been at least partially pornographic in nature, with extremely graphic stories and articles. Add in similarly graphic “romance” novels and women account for the majority of the total pornography bought and consumed in the United States, visual and “literature.” When I was in high school in the mid 1980s and in college and afterwards, girls and later women were reading some of the most graphic of “romance” books and “women’s magazines,” but for whatever reason, that was “acceptable.” Many Christian girls and women have read such “romance” novels and “women’s magazines” and are apparently fine with them, but turn around and object to the same concepts in visual formats. Reading a graphic story about heaving bodies in coitus qualifies as porn, does it not? Romance novels and such magazines never seem to get counted in porn stats, though.

    So, it’s “OK” if a woman buys porn, but it’s evil if a man does it?

    Often this or that specific type of pornography or circumstance has been cited over the years in order to give the impression of porn being a “men only” phenomenon. Some of the statistics really do appear to have underreported women’s role in pornography sales and consumption in the past— it makes an impression on you when when you work in retail and word gets around that it’s primarily women purchasing porn, and” TBC

    What bothers me is that its a pack of lies.

    In analyzing feminsm and porn, I went to the industry itself. Women account for 51% of visual porn consumed in the U.S. Videos, disks, online porn. Add in other types of porn and about 90% is consumed by women. The industry itself knows who their customers are.

    From my book National Wave of Foolishness, Feminazism chapter (online if you want to read the entire thing.):

    “What percentage of visual-type porn, in total, is purchased by women in the U.S.? About 51% according to the industry in 2009. Hardly a surprise, given that was the estimated percentage of females in the U.S. population in 2009, but it’s a very different view than that pushed by Feminists and even some Christian groups. X-rated disks, x-rated tapes, porn magazines, porn on the internet, etc., they all are pornography that is seen/visual.

    “Women’s magazines” for many years have typically been at least partially pornographic in nature, with extremely graphic stories and articles. Add in similarly graphic “romance” novels and women account for the majority of the total pornography bought and consumed in the United States, visual and “literature.” When I was in high school in the mid 1980s and in college and afterwards, girls and later women were reading some of the most graphic of “romance” books and “women’s magazines,” but for whatever reason, that was “acceptable.” TBC

    Here’s an example.

    Admittedly, I worked for a Federal regulatory agency at one point (9 graduate law credits and legal training don’t hurt), but ignorance of the Constitution is not a reasonable thing. It’s only 8 PAGES, for goodness’ sake.

    When I worked that job for the Feds, I worked in California, and lived and did my shopping in Oregon. At one point the State of Oregon tried to collect taxes on my wages earned in California. Both states’ laws forbid that, because of the Federal commerce clause. A letter quoting the appropriate Oregon Revised Statutes was all that it took. Someone apparently didn’t know them.

  • [1] August 28, 2014 at 1:28pm

    I wonder: do you EVER look up the laws concerning the things you state? Do you ever check up to see if your ideas are correct from a factual standpoint.

    Remember the Articles of Confederation? States actually had trade wars. One state would tax an article from one state, that state would do a tax in return, and so on. The 1787 Constitution deliberately limits interstate authority to Congress.

    Before you ask, when the States make laws not allowing this or that into their states, they are also violating the Constitution’s commerce clause. It takes time to get things through the courts to overturn such grabs of authority from the feds by the states, though.

    First, you libeled Christians with the suggestion that Christians are not “honest, law abiding” because they don’t break the U.S. Constitution and the USCode.

    Second, because no one has bothered to counter your false statement, you claim the Silence is evidence of guilt. The fact is that most people just ignore what you say because you are wrong most of the time.

    THINK before you post. READ UP on the laws if it’s a legal matter.

  • August 28, 2014 at 1:21pm

    re: jrook

    are you familiar at all with sales tax? A state CANNOT tax goods bought in another state, although many states try to break the Commerce Clause.

    Congress deliberately kept sales tax in each state, not for interstate transactions.

    That handful of state that try to steal from their citizens with such things as “use taxes” are directly violating the law, both the Constitution, because of the total lack of authority of a state to regulate interstate commerce, and those laws passed by Congress.

    The internet has been deliberately kept free from interstate taxes.

    re: old and tired

    All too true.

    The system of slavery of socialism never goes away. Like Russian Knapweed, when the scourge is eradicated, the accursed stuff just keeps popping up elsewhere.

    In the 1930s, the main centers for socialism were Germany, Austria, Albania, Hungary, Greece, Finland, Rumania, Bulgaria, and the Soviet Union.

    Stuff just doesn’t die. The Soviets infected the west and now we are rapidly becoming socialist in the U.S. and EU. It’s like bubonic plague. It has outbreaks and declines, but never goes away completely.
