@eddie, I completely agree with you but atleast you have to somehow consider. If censorship for the freedom to have gun is too much that is fine but reforming to at least reconsider their current laws with regards to gun.

Yeah, like basically lift all of the current restrictions.
No permits for pistols or full autos or silencers. No permits for concealed carry.
Something like, Freedom to keep and bear arms.. I could go along with that..

I can't personally tell why would this guy want's or plans after the attack.

How about fuck this guy? Who cares other than those trying to use it to destroy liberty?

I mean sure it sucks some people died, he is an asshole for killing a few people, but on the grand scale it is nothing at all but a useful backstory for those who seek to achieve ultimate power..

It's only 50 people, out of billions of people.
Their are like 7,700,000,000 people in the world.
Something like 150,000 people die every day.
50 people is nothing.. Insignificant..

Communism and totalitarian regimes have slaughtered 100,000,000 easy, and counting.
What did Hitler do first? Take the guns..
People are out of their minds to give up their guns over 50 people here and there..

People are so spoiled these days. It has been too long for them to remember why people need to be free and free to protect themselves.
Good times breed weak men.  The western-cultured world of good times has been breeding weak men for too long and we are seeing the signs of weak men bringing on hard times..

Watch the latest news here

HA HA No thanks..
More like "Watch the latest globalist, anti-America, anti-freedom, one world power shill propaganda here."

What this guy did was terrible, make no mistake, but all of these calls for censorship and gun control are terrible also.

This is NOT good for the cause of the right. This hurts the right, but may accelerate the left to attack the right, take rights and impose more control, to push closer to the tipping point of civil war exactly as the shooter claims he wants..

This entire situation is bad and not only has he murdered people but had done a great disservice to the right.

This guy idolizes communist china so he is probably an authoritarian lefty anyway but will be labeled right wing to propagandize just as he wants to happen..

Think for a moment that if this is some sort of false flag, "winning his money in the crypto market" is a pretty darn good way to hide where your money actually came from, you think?

This is not good and I do not want to see civil war, left vs right war, accelerated.. That would be very very not good..

There is no better example of the failure of liberal politics in my eyes.  It amazes me that these people actually want to see the rest of the country move in this direction and lambast the middle Americans that want no part of this lifestyle.  

They are enabling them..
This is the same reason you don't feed the seagulls at the beach or the gators at the golf course, because if you do they will come in droves and stay..
Creatures tend to go to the best habitat. When they create the best habitat for homeless people they come and you get a large population of them.

Climate change is real. The climate has been changing constantly since the beginning of the earth.
Their have been ice ages and major changes in sea level in history. Deserts have become rainforests and rainforests have become deserts. Land has become ocean and barren tundra has become fertile land diverse with life.

Climate change is real and my problem with it only comes when you try to blame it on me, try to say it is my fault, and then punish or hurt me and my family over it..

If you have it in you to see the big picture you can look at almost anything the left does, any action the left takes, and trace it directly back to the quest for the ultimate authoritarian one world government.

Try me.. I will show you..
I am curious to see any leftist policy that I can't relate to advancing their quest of an ultimate authoritarian one world government to gain ultimate power..
1292  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Green New Deal on: February 11, 2019, 01:00:41 AM
In my opinion the entire "Man Made Global Warming" debacle is an ingenious ploy traceable all the way up to those seeking ultimate power by creating a one world government.

At many stages it has attempted global wealth redistribution, to weaken the west and win the hearts of potential benefactor nations.
It attempts to destroy the economies of the west, making us spend money on nonsense to make us more poor so we are easier to take over.
It attempts to make us use less energy, making us weaker and easier to take over.

The CO2 theory is completely debunked in my opinion.

CO2 right now is very low compared to the history of the earth and does not correlate to historical tempature.

Infact CO2 correlates well with historical plant growth. At times in our earths history when CO2 was high/higher the earth had much more lush vegetation. Our CO2 is so low right now that plants are barely surviving compared to history.

CO2 as a greenhouse gas is also minuscule compared to other gasses in out atmosphere, most importantly water vapor.  

AGW is nothing but a scare tactic political weapon.

Neither the Mexican market nor the American market are completely free markets.
This is inherently how capitalism works though.  Companies like GM accumulate capital and buy influence over the government to shift the market in their favor.  The mythological free market cannot exist under capitalism because capital buys influence.  A company who does not actively seek to all means of shifting the markets in their favor is bound to fail in a capitalist society.

If the government has any influence over the market it is not a completely free market.
The problem you describe is caused by the market being less free due to government intervention, in a mixed economy, which is what you get when you try to compromise with socialists. In a true free market their would be no government influence to buy.

A true free market of voluntary exchange can only exist under capitalism and vice versa..
1294  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Africa isn't poor - Africa is being raped. on: February 08, 2019, 09:31:02 PM
that's what they get taught in school and there's a whole lot of whitewashing of their history and demonizing of them as peoples.

You think that is what is being taught in western school? You are terribly mistaken..
In school they teach white guilt and extreme PC culture at the expense of demonizing science..
Ninety-year-old Nobel Prize-winning scientist James Watson has been stripped of his honorary titles by a leading American research institution, after doubling down on his controversial conclusions linking race and intelligence.
Despite nearly half a century service to the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL), Watson, a world-renowned geneticist, lost all of his honorary titles of Chancellor Emeritus, Oliver R. Grace Professor Emeritus and Honorary Trustee, for refusing to retract his own scientific conclusions.

when asked more than a decade later whether his views about race and intelligence have changed, he told the PBS documentary they haven’t.

“Not at all. I would like for them to have changed, that there be new knowledge that says that your nurture is much more important than nature,” the scientist was quoted as saying in a recently previewed PBS documentary, titled American Masters: Decoding Watson. “There’s a difference on the average between blacks and whites on IQ tests. I would say the difference is, it’s genetic.”

Watson rose to international scientific fame in 1953 after helping discover DNA's double helix structure with fellow geneticists Maurice Wilkins and Francis Crick. In 1962, the team was awarded a Nobel Prize in Physiology “for their discoveries concerning the molecular structure of nucleic acids and its significance for information transfer in living material.”

If this was based on white supremacy it would never be admitted that East Asians have higher average IQs than whites..

And no white supremicist would ever admit that infact Ashkenazi Jews have the highest average IQ scores of all peoples..
Ashkenazi Jewish intelligence, often referred to as the "Jewish genius",[1][2][3][4] is a subject that explores the perception that Ashkenazi Jews on average have a higher intelligence than all other ethnic groups and excel disproportionately in many fields. Although it is generally accepted that there is a significant statistical difference in intelligence between Ashkenazi Jews and other ethnic groups, there still remains the question as to whether the difference is due to genetic factors or not. Because the relationship between human races and intelligence and the relationship between genetics and Jewish descent are both highly controversial, it has been an occasional subject of scientific controversy.

The average IQ score of Ashkenazi Jews has been calculated to be within the range of 108 to 115 under some studies, which is significantly higher than that of any other ethnic group in the world.

So am I a Jewish supremacists or Asian supremacists?

How is genetic IQ science white supremacist if whites don't even win and are topped by asians and jews?
What that is is PC Slander.. (calling me a white supremacist)

You will find that a lot of low IQs go hand in hand with poverty and a lack of education


I'm sure if you took the IQs of white American's living in trailer parks and in poverty you'd find they wouldn't score very well, but we wouldn't blame their race for that.

Poorer whites "living in trailer parks" tend to have lower IQs than rich whites living in affluent neighborhoods.

This is not blaming any race for anything
Their are very high and very low IQ examples of people from all races. Their are plenty of very low IQ asians and high IQ blacks, but this is about averages
and the average IQ of a country correlates almost perfectly to the success of that country..

Yea. The Chinese lends money to African countries. Then, when we can't pay back, they take their money back in form of our natural resources.

They are loan-sharking African countries and will control your entire country, not just take your oil..

PS: What is IQ of the Greenlanders? Why are they left out of the scores? Grey is such a dull color.

This one shows Greenland.
It must have been omitted from the other one.

Not all datasets are exactly the same but they all show a very similar pattern..

Unfortunately, almost everyone there does not have enough ability to manage these things.
it's a lot easier said than done when it comes to establishing a country that can hold itself up.
the African as we have today is a continent with confused leaders and blind followers

Denying the science is going to do nothing but keep Africa as poor as possible.
The only way you will ever find a solution to the poverty problem in Africa is if you recognize the true causes in order to develop a solution.

Go ahead and call me a Jewish supremacist if you can't handle the truth..  

Africa is being raped.
we get treated like slaves and our wealth is been enjoy by other continents.

Most importantly OP..
Stop blaming it on everyone else!
1295  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Capitalism and the exploitation of labor on: February 08, 2019, 02:02:02 AM
If you subscribe to capitalism, it seems as though you would subscribe to one of these philosophies towards labor

A. People are paid wages according to the “fair” market value of their skill and the amount of value they add
B. People do not “deserve” fair wages because no one is forcing them to accept a job for an “unfair” wage.

A. Absent any manipulation in a free market, people are paid economically competitive prices according to supply vs demand.
B. Under a free market people would compete for wages. They deserve or are entitled to nothing other than fair competition, what value they can provide in exchange for what compensation they are willing to settle for..

If you subscribe to A, then you run into issues with the variable cost of labor.  Producing a Chevy Blazer, for example, requires the same labor in the US as it does in Mexico. Therefore, it also requires the same amount of skill.  Workers in each country add the exact same value to the operation.

Neither the Mexican market nor the American market are completely free markets.

Also, just because the labor of putting cars together is happening the same in the USA and Mexico that does not mean that the technological development effort has been the same from the 2 countries.

GM workers make $2 an hour in Mexico while they make around ten times more in the US.  Why are Americans paid ten times more for the same exact work producing the same exact vehicle?  I have heard claims that people are paid more when their jobs involve more skill, more risk, or more difficulty, but none of those are true here.  

The American economy is much better and the markets are not completely free..

Well it would also be easy to think that the Mexican’s deserve less because everything costs less in Mexico but GM actually turns around and sells the cars to Mexicans at the full American price without subtracting 80% from the labor costs.  

In a free market a company should be able to charge whatever they want, whatever they think/bet will be competitive.

If you subscribe to B, you don’t believe the same work deserves the same pay to begin with and you think people have a choice, then you would seemingly be suggesting the Mexicans simply walk across the border and get the same job paying ten times more.  Well the Mexicans aren’t free to walk across the border and get the same job.  They are forced to work on their side of the border.  This is how capitalism uses borders to exploit labor.   How can you have a free market if labor cannot freely move?

Mexicans absolutely are not free to walk across the border due to our unfree market welfare state.
If their was no welfare state they would be free to come compete but would be allowed to absolutely fail if they cannot compete, or work for a very low wage.

Many people would also say “GM assumes all of the risk and is therefore entitled to run the company however they see fit.  If the cars don’t sell, they are stuck with the losses” but even that isn’t true.

December 19, 2008: President Bush approved a bailout plan and gave General Motors and Chrysler $13.4 billion in financing from TARP (Troubled Assets Relief Program) funds, as well as $4 billion to be "withdrawn later".
So we’re talking about socialized risk but no one socializes GM profits going forward.    How is GM assuming any risk when the government considers them "too big to fail"? The high paid executives not only assume no risk of failure, but seemingly get high payouts regardless of how negatively their incompetencies affect the work force and economy overall.  

 3 months later…

Rick Wagoner will leave his post as CEO of bailed-out General Motors with a $20 million retirement package, the company's financial filings show.
Under Wagoner's leadership, GM lost tens of billions of dollars, took billions in taxpayer-financed aid, and cut tens of thousands of jobs, including announced plans to cut 47,000 employees by the end of 2009.
I thought executives were paid for their skills and unique ability to "make the company go".  I thought they were paid more because they assumed all the risk.  Neither are true in this case.  The opposite is true.  Workers assumed all of the risk and the CEO took home all of the pay.  The public bailed the company out in order to keep the jobs which are now being shipped to Mexico.  

Problems caused by the welfare state which is equal to an unfree market..
In a free market GM would be allowed to fail if it couldn't compete..

In a completely free market their would be no welfare so no reason to restrict mexicans from coming to work.
In a completely free market their would be no minimum wage law.
In a completely free market their would be no welfare government bailouts for companies or people.

The reason their are so many differences across the US/Mexico boarder is neither market is free.
Absolute free market capitalism would solve all of these problems.

Is every post that mentions the name Leroy Fodor or Paul Vernon/Bao Luo a dox too?

I would really hate to see anything bad happen to thunderjet over this.. He is a very trustworthy, helpful, and positive user in my opinion. He is the one to first identify the Cryptsy stolen coins wallets before we even knew they were stolen and iirc may have been the one to bring some of the blockchain information to freeze coins that vern was trying to dump on exchanges saving a lot of coin that eventually ended up in the receivership to compensate the scam victims..

Once you are redpilled enough to recognize what is going on you can't help but to notice it everywhere..
If you like TV, your favorite actors, singers, artists, athletes, or any other famous people you should go back while you still can because once you learn about it and become awake to it it is too late for you. When you understand it it ruins almost everything and their is no going back so think hard before you give up your blissful ignorance.

Extreme harassment
For continually stalking a specific user or making threats. - yes

Asking for a no collateral loan - yes
Yes, after a warning or very unrealistic cases, but should be removed after a period of time if the user can come to the understanding of why they shouldn't do that and admit they were wrong if they just didn't know, which I think is the norm.

ANN bumping
No - Theymos said not to tag spammers/shitposters but if this "thread bumping" is a service or otherwise against the rules then report it to the mods.
If a user offers thread bumping services or any other service against forum rules. - yes
A user that appears to be breaking the rules by posting in ANN threads. - no - report.

Colluding - no
Some collusion can be seen as positive and some collusion can be seen as negative.
You can however tag someone simply because you believe they are not trustworthy.
Tag: "I do not trust this user because they are colluding with proven scammers". - yes

Leaving fake negative ratings - Yes, as a warning to others not to trust their ratings.

Loan defaults - Yes, but it should be the lender's decision or at the lenders request.

Business activity that resulted in the loss of funds by others. - no
When you invest in anything you should understand the risk that the venture will fail.
Business activity that scammed or deceived - yes
Business activity that failed - no

This is just my opinion but anyone can tag anyone for any reason they want even if it is against the advice of Theymos, but you will have to live with the results of your decisions.
You can tag Vod for "licking his boob" if you want but he and the court of public opinion will probably crush you and remove you from DT. Others may also tag you for leaving bullshit feedback.
