    Re: They are willing to destroy this country

    Do I detect a sense of humor there comrade?

    - - - Updated - - -

    A friend of mine and I used to go to this beer hall in Berkeley,near UC Berkeley,where we would spark up a loud conversation of made up references and made up people we cited as our source in this conversation. At some point someone would "Join" our conversation and agree with one of us concerning the made up subject...It was kind of mean I suppose, but you know how it is to be young and full of vinegar(also full of beer)

    Somewhat like Hunter S. Thompson who was called a gonzo Journalist,I consider myself to be something of a gonzo Pagan.

    It is interesting that humans seem to believe that they are the crown of creation,until nature drops a house on them....Just saying....

    Re: They are willing to destroy this country

    One thing should worry Conservatives,when they keep defending tRUMP,is the trickle effect. With each act,tRUMP is digging that hole we all imagine,and when he finally falls into that gaping maw,he might have a few "Others" chained to him as he plunges down,those who hitched their political wagon to the man who falls to earth.

    for Den,I am not trying to be negative here,I would love to actually have a President who brought our country up,that line "make America great again" is fine if in fact he was trying to really elevate our status in the world. As it is,he is painting us as clowns and rubes in the eyes of the other nations.

    Re: They are willing to destroy this country

    I've not been defending Trump in weeks, I just have much different criticisms than most folks do. As a matter of fact, most of my criticisms are that Trump has been kowtowing to the political establishment, flip-flopping on important issues.

    Honestly, at this point I am drifting towards outright accelerationist/NRx territory. My faith in the system has never been particularly strong, but its at an all time low. Basically, if democracy can't fix these problems then the system itself must burn.

    Really though, I see it heading that way regardless. Once mass immigration turns Texas into a blue state, we are going to see a massive immigration spiral. As generation z comes into power we are going to have polarization on a scale we haven't seen in ages, like late Weimar stuff.

    That's what I see coming, anarchy and fascism. Maybe inevitably.

    Trust is knowing someone or something well enough to have a good idea of their motivations and character, for good or for ill. People often say trust when they mean faith.

    Yeah, and your point is? He's talking about aesthetic relativism, which is another product of the enlightenment. The idea that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" or, to put another way, art doesn't need any standards or qualifications. A bed someone put in an exhibit is no less a piece of art than Michelangelo's David. Lack of standards leads to lack of quality, obviously.

    Hopefully, Mitch McConnell.

    And on the lighter side, Rush Limbough and Sean Hannity.

    Ann Coulter has already abandoned the sinking ship, clever rat that she is.

    Reminds me of an episode of Murphy Brown when Eldin has an art show,and someone mistakes a fire extinguisher for an art piece. Eldin goes bonkers and takes his art, and walks away...

    My point is that I don't agree with him. Why do you always sound so angry Den? Are we getting our wires crossed here? I may not agree with you sometimes but I'm not angry with you. Chwarae teg, butty.

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    A good Glock may be all you need unless you are feeling you would be a good sniper. Just remember a sniper will draw a LOT of gunfire,he is a priority target not unlike a machine gun. Might even draw an RPG or two. Even a close concussive round can kill you from the blast wave,does not really need to hit your body,shrapnel also comes into play.
