    Here I was thinking it would be above Boulder around 4:20pm…

    On the one hand I agree with insulhom. That the revolution “should” be at the ballot box, removing those elected representatives with whom we disagree.

    On the other hand however, with all of the unelected bureaucrats who currently hold so much of what used to be the power invested in Congress, I wonder if we truly have a “representative government” any longer.

    There’s a lot of these agencies where Congress has almost no authority to tell them what to do and in some cases little real control over funding. In other cases congress has totally abdicated it’s oversight responsibility and just throws money at the agency because anything else incites howls from the masses.

    Further, I’m not sure you can do what’s needed at the ballot box because this country wasn’t set up for an electorate that was as dumbed down as ours is. It was set up for people with a much higher standard level of education that we currently produce and with a lot more moral fiber too.

    @Sosorryforyou:

    ” I gave never seen such divisiveness and hate-filled rhetoric as I have in the past few years – and most of it from the Right.”

    Then you’re willfully blind.

    I won’t go into percentages because I’ve never done an in depth analysis of this and fed it into SPSS, but if you’re not willing to admit that the left is guilty of at least half of this, then you’re either willfully blind or a liar.

    Am I the only one here who thinks this is suspicious?

    Something about this guy’s statements doesn’t add up.

    First, if you have half a brain you don’t reveal your strategy or tactics publicly.

    Second, regardless of the veracity of the statements, why would someone who “supports” something go out on what basically amounts to a negative PR blitz about they very thing they support?

    Third, this clearly paints these guys in a bad light, which does nothing to help encourage recruitment of women, or men for that matter.

    This amounts to basically going on TV saying “Hey, there’s this movement I support and we use really abhorrant tactics like using women as human shields! You should definitely join!”.

    Just seems really strange to me. I don’t have enough info to call shenanigans, but I’m deeply suspicious.

    Two Stasi agents are sitting in a parked car.

    The driver turns to the agent in the passenger seat and asks “Are you thinking what I’m thinking?”.

    The passenger replies “Yes”.

    The driver pulls out his sidearm and points it at the passenger saying “Well then, you’re under arrest!”

    @sosorryforyou:

    Judgement aside there are tons of people who work long hours and don’t spend a ton of extra money on pre-packaged food. My wife works 50+ hours a week and I average just about 65. We still have 3 home made meals each every single day, a clean house and a nice garden. Sure, we don’t have more than a couple free hours a week, but that’s the price of working towards retiring at 55.

    Obviously everyone’s situation is different and for that widow working two jobs to support her three kids, good for her for getting out there and hitting it hard. However that mother isn’t doing what Turkey describes because she can’t afford pre-packaged food like that.

    I predict that you are correct.

    While I think his behavior is reprehensible, whatever happened to the 1st and 4th Amendments?

    Probably because the word racist is thrown around so easily by the left and the fact that there is a very virulent form of antisemitism alive and well in almost all liberal precincts.

    There’s also the fact that healthy food is expensive to the point it prices many people out of the market.

    If you live in Colorado and don’t want any of what Sapper-7 is talking about, come to Brighton.

    I fail to see how getting paid a six figure salary while getting summers off is “cheap”.

  • April 13, 2014 at 1:03am

    So what you’re saying is that any line of thought that isn’t outright liberal and approved of by liberals isn’t worth bothering to discuss?

    Your stupidity knows no bounds.

    Ripe, I don’t think either of the options you present are completely accurate, but they can both be true at the same time.

    How many other countries have we seen where a domestically powerful dictator totally wrecks a country? North Korea would be one example of many.

    Personally, I don’t think that Obama falls squarely into either category. He’s an ideological Statist who has shown himself to be remarkably effective at slowing or stopping things he doesn’t like, causing enormous amounts of trouble and somehow managing to deflect the majority of what criticism he does get.

    While his ability to advance what he wants has been sorely lacking in some cases he has shown himself to be remarkably effective at blocking things he doesn’t like and acting around the edges of other issues with what can only be called dictatorial zeal.

    A couple of examples; he’s been a total joke on dealing with Iran and Syria so there I will call him weak and ineffectual.

    He has however been very effective at illegally altering the ACA, as well as pretty good at ignoring the federal courts that ruled the Labor Relations Board’s actions to be illegal due to a lack of quorum.

    There’s nothing that says you can’t be an iron-fisted dictator and stupid at the same. Pretty much every lefty dictator on the planet has proved that again and again.

    This is obvious proof that rehab is a total scam these days.

    I’m not saying that there are not people who need or will benefit from rehab.

    What I’m saying is this, rehab is total rip off based on the current price.

    $715x30x12 = $257,400/year.

    What does that mean? I means that at current tax brackets if you make $300,000 a year you will pay $70,866.75 in taxes an have $229,133.25 left over.

    A family making $300K a year cant afford to send one drug or alcohol addled kid to this sort of treatment.

    In other words, many people are paying out the nose for a program that has at best a 10% chance (chances of AA/NA type program working) of working.

    Then there’s the cheaper programs, where you can pay $17K for 8 weeks of treatment.

    THIS IS A FREAKING SCAM PEOPLE!

    And before someone here starts talking trash, I worked in this industry because I thought I’d be able to help people. After working in it I realized that I was not helping very many but just making my boss rich by ripping off the families of addicts.

    In BJJ chokes (attacking the windpipe) and strangles (attacking the carotid and jugular) both have the same general effect.

    Generally, strangles are considered safer if they are properly applied and promptly released.

    The reason is that blood vessels that large can be “collapsed” and will reopen themselves (also why a chop to the neck is so effective, temporarily closing the vien or artery and blocking blood flow). Properly executed a strangle like this will render the person totally unconscious in 3-5 seconds, holding it after the person passes out will supposedly start to cause brain damage at around 15 seconds. Using the collar of a polo shirt, or a kimono is particularly effective.

    Chokes on the other hand are really designed to force a submission by inflicting pain on the windpipe or kill the person by crushing the windpipe. They can be applied to render a person unconscious, however this is difficult to do because the person generally doesn’t just let you choke them out, the struggle, greatly increasing the risk to themselves.

    Too bad he didn’t send her to the ICU to think about her behavior.
