But that's what Bernie Sanders is for. The real lefties. Not many left.


Yes, that is the truth.  Currently playing in Washington is Return of the NeoCon.  But Dems with identity politics can turn one group against another at will and the NeoLiberal Dem core is doing exactly that.  The core in both parties is moneyed and that controls their actions.  Now money wants war.

Bernie was shut down.

FWIW I tried to pick up my new shotgun at Cabela's yesterday and I didn't pass the FBI background check, at least the automated online version. I expect to be cleared as soon as a human looks at my application, which might take several days. But they are being careful, apparently.


Eddie, This is a serious question.  Do you think giving GW Bush the finger in 2004 would sink an FBI application if I made one?

Middle finger no. Index finger yes.

Seriously, I doubt it. Shooting a politician the finger is protected speech, imho. It wouldn't be defensible to refuse you for that.

Re: Ex-Supreme John Paul Stevens Calls for 2nd Amendment Repeal

John Paul Stevens: Repeal the Second Amendment

By JOHN PAUL STEVENS MARCH 27, 2018


Rarely in my lifetime have I seen the type of civic engagement schoolchildren and their supporters demonstrated in Washington and other major cities throughout the country this past Saturday. These demonstrations demand our respect. They reveal the broad public support for legislation to minimize the risk of mass killings of schoolchildren and others in our society.

That support is a clear sign to lawmakers to enact legislation prohibiting civilian ownership of semiautomatic weapons, increasing the minimum age to buy a gun from 18 to 21 years old, and establishing more comprehensive background checks on all purchasers of firearms. But the demonstrators should seek more effective and more lasting reform. They should demand a repeal of the Second Amendment.

Concern that a national standing army might pose a threat to the security of the separate states led to the adoption of that amendment, which provides that “a well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” Today that concern is a relic of the 18th century.


For over 200 years after the adoption of the Second Amendment, it was uniformly understood as not placing any limit on either federal or state authority to enact gun control legislation. In 1939 the Supreme Court unanimously held that Congress could prohibit the possession of a sawed-off shotgun because that weapon had no reasonable relation to the preservation or efficiency of a “well regulated militia.”


During the years when Warren Burger was our chief justice, from 1969 to 1986, no judge, federal or state, as far as I am aware, expressed any doubt as to the limited coverage of that amendment. When organizations like the National Rifle Association disagreed with that position and began their campaign claiming that federal regulation of firearms curtailed Second Amendment rights, Chief Justice Burger publicly characterized the N.R.A. as perpetrating “one of the greatest pieces of fraud, I repeat the word fraud, on the American public by special interest groups that I have ever seen in my lifetime.”

In 2008, the Supreme Court overturned Chief Justice Burger’s and others’ long-settled understanding of the Second Amendment’s limited reach by ruling, in District of Columbia v. Heller, that there was an individual right to bear arms. I was among the four dissenters.

That decision — which I remain convinced was wrong and certainly was debatable — has provided the N.R.A. with a propaganda weapon of immense power. Overturning that decision via a constitutional amendment to get rid of the Second Amendment would be simple and would do more to weaken the N.R.A.’s ability to stymie legislative debate and block constructive gun control legislation than any other available option.

That simple but dramatic action would move Saturday’s marchers closer to their objective than any other possible reform. It would eliminate the only legal rule that protects sellers of firearms in the United States — unlike every other market in the world. It would make our schoolchildren safer than they have been since 2008 and honor the memories of the many, indeed far too many, victims of recent gun violence.

John Paul Stevens is a retired associate justice of the United States Supreme Court.

Gun Rights Advocates Gather Across The U.S.

Gun rights demonstrators rallied at state capitols across the U.S. Saturday to show support for gun ownership. A group called The National Constitutional Coalition of Patriotic Americans created Facebook events for pro-gun gatherings in all 50 states, and its co-founder David Clayton told the Associated Press that organizers secured permits for rallies in 45 states. It has been three weeks since Parkland, Fla. high school students and their allies organized a day of public rallies and marches to push for more gun regulation.

Illustrated Scenes From The 'March For Our Lives'

A statement on the National Constitutional Coalition of Patriotic Americans' website announcing the events frames the day of action as a show of support for the Second Amendment and the Constitution. It also alludes to political debates about gun violence and mass shootings:

    "Modern thinkers feel the need to strip away our natural born right to self-protection by limiting the available weapons that are at our disposal. They blame mental illness without documentation. They blame everything except the sole responsible party, the person involved in the action."

Another group publicizing the events on social media was Oath Keepers. According to the organization's website, Oath Keepers is "a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders, who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to 'defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.'" The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks the activity of far-right groups in the U.S., calls Oath Keepers "one of the largest radical anti-government groups in the U.S. today."

Clayton told The Chicago Tribune that though carrying unloaded guns, when legal, was encouraged, the marches were meant to be nonviolent:

    "This is a very peaceful approach to a show of force," Clayton said. "What that means is we're not going to go there looking for a fight. We're saying, 'Look at all the people gathered here. We have a voice too.'"

Associated Press reporters counted about 100 people at the event in Cheyenne, Wyo., more than 400 at the event in Dover, Del. and more than 135 people at the event in Atlanta, Ga. Organizers of the event in Augusta, Maine told the Associated Press about 800 people showed up there.

Corey Stewart, a Republican who is now making his second run for Senate in Virginia, spoke at the event in Richmond, Va. He told NPR that though he hasn't heard an official count, he estimates that about 200 people were in attendance. He says he believes such an event is important in the current political moment because "the left is trying very hard to limit the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans."

Stewart says he emphasized arms as a tool for public safety in his speech Saturday. "The only way that we're going to prevent school shootings is by arming retired police, veterans and even teachers," he said. "The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."

Hundreds of school walkouts planned for Friday

"We're walking out to remember every single young person who has been killed by American gun violence."
by Associated Press / Apr.20.2018 / 3:01 AM ET / Updated 3:24 AM ET

Another wave of student walkouts is expected to disrupt classes Friday at hundreds of schools across the U.S. as young activists press for tougher gun laws.

The protests were chosen to line up with the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting, which left 13 people dead in Littleton, Colorado. At 10 a.m., students plan to gather for moments of silence honoring the victims at Columbine and other shootings.

From there, some students will head to rallies at their statehouses. Others will stay at school to discuss gun violence. Some are holding voting registration drives.

Organizers say there will be walkouts in every state, with more than 2,600 registered on the event's website as of Thursday. Citywide protests are expected to attract thousands in New York City and Austin, Texas. Police in Richmond, Virginia, say they expect at least 10,000 at the state Capitol.

It follows a wave of youth activism that has emerged after the Feb. 14 shooting massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Tens of thousands of students left class March 14 to protest gun violence in what historians called the largest youth protest movement since at least the Vietnam War. Days later, hundreds of thousands of teens and their backers rallied across the U.S. calling for tougher laws on guns and ammunition.

Plans for Friday's walkout began only hours after the Parkland shooting, when a Connecticut teen started an online petition calling for protests on the anniversary of Columbine. Sophomore Lane Murdock then gathered a few other students at Ridgefield High School to orchestrate the national protest.

They also have received help from Indivisible, a left-leaning nonprofit based in Washington that helps boost grassroots activism. The group says it was formed after the 2016 election to oppose the policies promoted by President Donald Trump.

"We're walking out to remember every single young person who has been killed by American gun violence," Murdock said in a statement Thursday. "We're walking out to talk about the real problems our country is facing, and the solutions that our leaders are too scared to dream up."

Administrators at many schools tacitly allowed the walkouts in March, opting not to punish participants. But some now say the leniency has expired.

At a town hall Monday, the chancellor of New York City's education department urged students not to walk out on Friday.

"You don't need to be out of school all day to make your voices known," Chancellor Richard Carranza told students at Brooklyn Technical High School. "You've already made your voices known. So I'm going to ask you to stay in school."

Even so, students at many New York schools are planning to rally at the city's Washington Square Park.

Some schools in Houston and elsewhere will give students time to share their views but have warned them not to leave campus or return to class late. Some others are holding alternative events after school. Many have simply said students are expected to stay in class throughout the day.

Students in the Washington area are planning to march from the White House to the Capitol building, where they will rally and deliver letters to Congress calling for greater gun control.

In Littleton, some survivors of the Columbine shooting planned to join with Parkland survivors for a vigil and rally Thursday evening. But there will be no walkout at Columbine, which has long canceled classes on the anniversary of the shooting. Instead, students will be called to participate in a day of service.

Principal Scott Christy said in a letter to other schools in his district that April "has long been a time to respectfully remember our loss, and also support efforts to make our communities a better place."

Toronto van: Ten dead and 15 injured as pedestrians are hit


Media captionWitnesses recall Toronto van incident

Ten people have been killed and 15 injured after a man drove a van into pedestrians in Toronto, police said.

The suspect has been named by police as Alek Minassian, 25.

A man was arrested several streets away following a tense standoff with officers on the street.

Bystander videos appeared to show the driver pointing an object at the officers, who can be heard shouting at him to get down. The man was then detained without any shots being fired.

Toronto deputy police chief Peter Yuen asked for witnesses to come forward and said there would be "a long investigation". He said separate hotlines had been set up for victims' families and for witnesses.

Police would not say if they believed the act was deliberate but Canadian public safety minister Ralph Goodale, in a tweet thanking the emergency services, referred to it as a "horrific attack".

Reza Hashemi, who owns a video shop on Yonge Street, told the BBC he heard screaming on the other side of the road.

He said the white rental van had repeatedly mounted the pavement and run into people.
Media captionAmbulance rushes to the scene in Toronto

Van rental company Ryder System Inc confirmed that one of its vehicles was involved and said it was co-operating with authorities.

The incident occurred at Yonge Street and Finch Avenue at 13:30 local time (17:30 GMT) on Monday. The crime scene encompassed a 2km (1.24 mile) stretch of Yonge Street.

About 18 miles (30km) away in the city centre, foreign ministers of the G7 leading industrialised nations - Canada, the US, Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Japan - were holding meetings.

Pictures apparently taken at the scene showed armed police and paramedics treating the injured. One orange bag, which appeared to contain a body, was loaded on to an ambulance.

Toronto police spokeswoman Jenifferjit Sidhu told CBC News that the vehicle was stopped by police.
Residents left in shock

Jessica Murphy, BBC News, Toronto

A long stretch of Yonge Street in Toronto's North York is cordoned off with yellow police tape for what police say will be a complex investigation.

There are multiple sites where people were hit. At one intersection, debris and a lone shoe mark the spot of one fatality.

In the aftermath, people who would usually be running errands or heading back to surrounding office towers and condominiums reacted with shock at what happened, sharing what they had seen or heard, even though reasons behind the incident remain unclear.

Hours after the event there is mainly just quiet, as police begin the painstaking work of piecing together what happened on a wide stretch of road on Monday lunch hour.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted from Ottawa: "Our thoughts are with all those affected by the terrible incident at Yonge and Finch in Toronto."

"Thank you to the first responders working at the scene - we're monitoring the situation closely."

One witness told City News that the driver was "hitting anything that comes in the way".

"People, fire hydrants, there's mail boxes being run over," said the unnamed man, who said he was driving behind the van during the incident.

As the van continued, the man said he sounded his horn to try to warn pedestrians. "I witnessed at least six, seven people being hit and flying in the air, like killed, on the street," he said.

Image caption Bystanders tried to help emergency responders treat the injured victims

Toronto Mayor John Tory called it "a very tragic incident". He said he had "offered any and all assistance that the city can provide to the police to help this investigation".

The US and Europe have seen an increase in driving attacks in recent years. In October 2017, a man in New York drove a van down a bicycle path, killing eight people.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/college-graduate-wears-gun-holster-with-ar-10-in-her-graduation-photos/

College grad wears gun holster with AR-10 in her graduation photos


A recent college graduate from Kent State University in Ohio is gaining attention online for graduation photos she posted on Twitter.

Kaitlin Bennett shared photos of herself wearing an AR-10 rifle strapped to her back and her graduation cap in hand. A picture of a gun and the words "come and take it" decorated the graduation cap.

"Now that I graduated from Kent State, I can finally arm myself on campus," Bennett wrote in the post. "I should have been able to do so as a student - especially since 4 unarmed students were shot and killed by the government on this campus."

Bennett is referring to the killing of four people on Kent State's campus in 1970. After days of unrest over America's invasion of Cambodia during the Vietnam War, student protesters clashed with Ohio National Guardsmen. The guardsmen opened fire, killing four students and wounding nine others.

Bennett tweeted several images from a photo shoot that she took to mark graduation. In the photos, she poses around Kent State University's campus wearing a white dress and and a gun holster around her body. She explained in one tweet that the gun is an AR-10 and it "fires at the same rate as any modern pistol," not an assault rifle.

It is a tradition at many colleges for students to decorate their graduation caps with clever sayings and personal messages. The message Bennett chose: "Come and take it," referring to her gun.

Some Twitter users replied to Bennett's photos with disapproval or worse. She posted screenshots of her exchange with an aggravated Twitter user who appeared to threatened her physically. Bennett says Twitter suspended that person's account.

"This rifle is legally owned. Assault rifles have been banned for decades. Do you not see the problem here? You say you don't want to take away legally owned guns, but had NO IDEA that the rifle pictured is legally owned," she replied to other commenters.

When someone questioned if the police would support Bennett's public display of the firearm if she were black, Bennett replied. "The black officer that was with us during this photoshoot loved it, actually. Give him a call," she wrote.

Bennett also got support on Twitter, with one person writing, "The gun offsets your dress beautifully!" "Stand your ground. You go girl a lot of us have your back," another commenter wrote.

The new graduate is one of the founders of the "Liberty Hangout" group, her Twitter bio reads. The group has been
"promoting peace, prosperity and property rights since 2015," according to its website. The college student-run organization is a right-wing group that vows to protect the Second Amendment.

Bennett said in a tweet that now that she has graduated, she is allowed to carry a gun on campus. However, Kent State's policy regarding deadly weapons states "Students, staff, faculty, and third parties doing business with the university are further prohibited from possessing, storing, or using a deadly weapon while outside on university grounds, that is owned, operated or leased by the university."

An excerpt:

Feminism has afforded women more rights and agency over the past several decades. However, from feminism’s beginnings, certain groups of men have been arguing that maybe men, not women, are society’s real victims (Gilmore 2001). The men’s rights movement (MRM) is inherently reactionary in nature, arguing concepts like reverse sexism. Men’s rights activists (MRAs) have formed coalitions around issues such as false rape accusations, circumcision, custody battles, and abortion. Historically, MRM has been a relatively fringe movement, but it has proliferated recently due to the Internet’s unprecedented capability to collect like-minded individuals in a forum to discuss their perceived grievances on a large scale. Welcome to the Manosphere, a diffuse online network of blogs, subreddits, Facebook groups, forums, and more dedicated to rejecting feminism in favor of “men’s rights.” Thanks to the Internet, the Manosphere is global, and most members never meet each other, but it is massive and rapidly growing.

The Grinnell study adds that many in the Incel Movement subreddit were also active in alt-right pages such as “The Red Pill,” “Mens Rights” and “Men Going Their Own Way.” A Quartz piece included words such as “femoids” and “Chad” as being part of a new alt-right dictionary. That same article mentions that some on the subreddit referred to Elliot Rodger as “Saint Elliot” because he “martyred” himself for the Incel cause.


It seems the INTERNET is allowing broken people to come together and cultivate their pain and maladjustments together.  One big fucked up family.  It seems 'Incels' nickname everything and everyone so they don't have to take responsibility for anything.

As to Minassian, he has written an 'app' that has been downloaded over 100 times which lets you find parking in Toronto.  He can, or rather, could code.  But where he is going he won't be touching a computer for the rest of his life.

I remember now.

RE replies with his stories of plying ballerinas with coke, and how listening is bullshit, and how women are all bimbos, and how any man who has one is pussy-whipped.

Stop misquoting me.

I never said "all women are Bimbos"EVAH.  You are manufacturing "alternative facts" to suit the model for me you have created in your head.  It is innacurate and unjustified and you need to apologize for this.

Just like the male population, at least 90% of women are assholes, but not all.  Of the remaining 10% of people of either of the tratitional genders I can tolerate as a friend, 99% of them I couldn't or wouldn't want to live in the same house with them.  You would be one of those people and it has nothing to do with your being a female, homosexual, transgender or any other fucking gender identity.  I just couldn't stand having you around all the time.

In terms of men who do keep women around to live with, I ALSO never said ALL of them were Pussy-Whipped.  You need to apologize for floating that alternative fact also.  I even presented the cultural example fact of Japanese men who aren't as often Pussy Whipped as their Western counterparts here in the FSoA.  What I do note is my historical and present experience, which is that just about every male I do know now who is married is also Pussy-Whipped.  I think this is mostly a cultural phenomena and an artifact of the Collapse of Industrial Civilization.

Please apologize for your misstatements ASAP.
