I think this logic is quite biased. It looks to me more like the Russians took the position that having anyone other than Clinton as US President would be in the Russian national interest. And I can easily see why they felt that way.

You have posited a syllogism, I think.

Possibly, but it doesn't make Pfeiffer right, regardless.
Indeed, Pfeiffer is assuming that Putin wanted to damage the US.  To me, it looks much more like Putin had a personal vendetta against Hillary herself rather than any strategic planning.

Funny bit of info on this.  In order to get a hunting license you have to take a class on gun safety.  But if you aren't going to hunt, then you don't need the gun safety class, and you can just go buy your large capacity semi-auto handgun and go kill people with it.  What kind of sense does that make? 

I think in order to have a handgun you should have to have a concealed carry license, and in order to have a riffle or shotgun you should have to take the hunter safety class. 

What's the logic here?  In order to have a hunting license to go shoot deer you have to take a hunter safety class, which is just about gun control (as in breath control and the like).  But to buy a gun to just have you can just go buy one so long as you are 18 and aren't a felon.  Fuckin' retarded is what it is. 
That's the kind of gun control I fully support, namely:

1.) Hitting your target
2.) Making sure it doesn't go off accidentally
3.) Making sure no one else gets hold of it

If you can't control your gun that way, you have no business owning one.

She wants a bullet-proof vest. The cops here (and I suspect everywhere else) are upgrading their body armor to a heavier type designed to stop rifle bullets.

They make some very fashionable suits.



Not sure if they will stop AR-15 fire.

Guess you heard that FL state senator who was going off on NPR about putting more people with guns on campus. Total NRA poster boy.

So...listen up y'all....you gotta (very quickly) (1)whip out your gun, (2)shoot the shooter, then (3) hide your gun before the police come. Let's practice that again, everybody.

Conservatives are now suggesting that the young people from Stoneman Douglas must be "crises actors."
I guess when you spend your days hanging out with gullible morons and conspiracy nuts who voted for Trump, you simply can't imagine intelligent, determined, articulate, and courageous young people.

I think schools generally ARE gun exclusion zones.  It's just that shooters don't obey the law.

I know from reading Carl Hiassen for years that Florida has the crookedest bunch of grifters in the legislature of any state. They pretty much all have their hands out, and they'll vote for (or against anything) for a buck, and the buck doesn't have to be legally obtained either.

I know... thank goodness that is over and done with... could you imagine how many trillions of dollars we would have wasted if we had maintained a military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan after Bush declared "Mission Accomplished"?  :'(

It's called Insurrection, and it's not about overthrowing the government, it's about making it too costly to impose control....

This is very true.  Just look at Vietnam as an example.  The FSoA had the Hueys and the Jets dropping the Napalm, the Boys in Black Pajamas just had AK-47s and IEDs.  But who won that one?

The big weapons don't really have a lot of utility in a mass insurrection.  Besides, they take a LOT of gas to get them up in the air.  If you have enough boots on the ground with AR-15s on your side, the military goes down.  You also have to realize that at a certain point military commanders will flip sides.  This happenned most recently in Crimea.  The Ukie military simply would not shoot on the Crimeans.  They left town instead.

Well their compound was surrounded by 20,000 Russians, and they were only navy/air force with only one plane serviceable at the time, and unpaid for months.  And they were offered free passage to somewhere they wanted to go.  Things will be very different when you take on the US Army in your revolutionary takeover of the US.
