When the government considers you a dangerous man. The guy who 3D printed guns and wanted to make money selling the software to do it, is being hunted down on the other side of the world because he paid a 16 year old for consensual sex here in Austin. Now, she's a victim, poor thing. I wonder if she had to give back the $500.


Taiwan Hunts for Cody Wilson After Underage Sex Accusation
3D-printed gun creator's last known location was Taipei

(NEWSER) – Taiwan said Thursday it is looking for the owner of a Texas company that makes untraceable 3D-printed guns who is wanted on an arrest warrant tied to an accusation that he had sex with an underage girl and paid her $500 afterward. The National Immigration Agency and Criminal Investigation Bureau confirmed that Cody Wilson was in Taiwan after arriving on the island earlier this month. Division Director Kan Yen-min was quoted by the official Central News Agency as saying the bureau has yet to receive intelligence from the US regarding Wilson, but will continue seeking more information about the case. Taiwan and the US do not have an extradition treaty but cooperate extensively on legal and security matters, reports the AP.

Austin, Texas, police Cmdr. Troy Officer said Wednesday that his department is working with national and international law enforcement agencies to find Wilson, whose last known location was Taiwan's capital, Taipei. Officer said it's unclear why Wilson went to Taiwan, but he is known to travel extensively. He said before Wilson flew there, a friend of the 16-year-old girl informed Wilson that police were investigating the accusation that he had sex with the youth. Wilson is identified in the affidavit as the owner of Austin-based Defense Distributed. After a federal court barred Wilson from posting the printable gun blueprints online for free last month, he announced he had begun selling them for any amount of money to US customers through his website.

$500 afterward ?!!!

It is NOT done that way.  It is not the same thing as paying a waitress in a restaurant.  Years ago dining and dashing in restaurants used to be a problem before surveillance cameras could record the crime.  But who is going to pay for a bad meal?  It has to be that way, but sex is different.  In the oldest profession 'payment first' evolved about 5000 years ago to prevent fucking and flying, and most 'dashing' in America is from 'poor victims' who take the money and run without providing service.  Prostitution being illegal allows exploitation of men to flourish and as women can't report crimes either, a certain kind of creep does exploit some of them too.

A Hollywood fantasy hooker in a TV drama might take money after.  She will also take $500 or more.  In the real world not so much; in the real world real men don't pay $500 for sex and they have to pay up front.  That simple fact makes the Austin article bullshit.  Historically the American price seems to be tied to what a 'working' man can take home in a day.  Sheet-rock guys are not going home with $500 bucks extra in their pocket every day. 

The truth of it all is this.  In real life hookers hold the cards and they can go forever without having sex.  They do it to get paid, no other reason.  Women who have become hookers are all as adept as their mental abilities allow them to be at manipulating men.  In America hookers are in constant demand as American women have put a 'price' on their pussies so high men simply can't afford their dysfunctional and atrophied parts.  I am not talking about only money here.  American women are lost in a romantic La-La land of mentations which have no connection to the real world.  We can't all buy you horse farms or give you 'the relationship you deserve' American woman, so American Hookers run the show.  They call the shots as they have since the country began.  American women don't know what relationship they want or what relationship they can even have, so American men not being able to provide it, whatever 'it' is, is understandable.   

Our social dysfunction, produces lonely American men who in desperation will pay for sex from women who are there to exploit their desperation and who absolutely will run out with their money first if they possibly can.  While I have written this I am sure a dozen American hookers have run out with customer money and left poor desperate suckers in the lurch.  Money is always paid first.  It may have happened the other way around, men robbing hookers, once in the same time period.  The ratio is at least a dozen to one the other way.

The myth that prostitution exploits women is alive and well in America and will not die soon.  America loves superheros and myths and regarding paid sex America has firmly chosen who the victims are in these transactions.  No counter argument will ever be allowed.  Men are never exploited by hookers, it is always the other way around in America.  Sexuality must be repressed, now more than ever!  The poor suffering angels must be saved so they can then save America from the evil patriarchy.



As no evidence could show a crime was committed no investigation is possible.  Hearsay should not be enough to sustain an investigation or even start one by any prosecuting attorney who wants to keep their job in an ideal world, but this is America.  Investigations which can't possibly result in an actionable result are an inappropriate use of public funds.

Anyone,in my view, who is not in a highly defensible position with regards to his or her own assets, shouldn't blame anyone but themselves when the bad shit comes down next time.

Given my rather limited assets, I am about as bulletproof as you can get.  I can go for 2-3 years without even leaving my Cottage as long as I can get some energy to keep going.  I have plans to board up my windows and doors to keep the Zombies out.  My cottage is very defensible.  I also make friends with my neighbors, who are generally either aging cripples like me or natives.  I give away food every day to my friends here.  I am building relationships.  When TSHTF, I have much more to give away, hidden away from my Cottage.  I am worth keeping alive because of that, they'll never find it without me.  So I expect to live roughly a year after SHTF Day arrives here.  That is good enough for me.

Do you expect dentists and prostitutes to work for chickens and produce?

No, I expect them to give their services away in a Gift Economy.  It's called "Potlatch".  I can't believe you still don't grasp I don't accept or approve of the concept of "money" at all.  How many times have I hammered down on how wrong this is?  I fucking had it CARVED IN STONE on my Tombstone for crying out loud.  What do I need to do to drill this concept through your skull?

Get this this through your fucking skull, asshole.

Gift economies are far and few between, and predicated on societies that live by different rules than the one we happen to live in.

It's a great thing, gifting. I expect I do (and have done) a great deal more of that than you do, or ever have done. You don't have a fucking clue, buddy. So get off your high horse.

I have been busy at a corporate meeting for the last two days and unable to piss away nearly enough time on Diner matters.

This thread is a serious case of thread drift. Impressive, boys.

Potlatch economies do exist in some localities and might exist again, but only when barter is viable and after the money goes to shit. Which will happen in about two more nice, fat tax cuts for the robber barons and thieves  about whom Taibbi writes.

Hookers have been known to engage in barter, primarily for meth or crack. Poultry and carrots are not typically part of that barter commerce but might appear in a novelty act.

I like Matt Taibbi, he's one of my favorite journalists. But getting back to the headline, I also don't agree that WE have learned nothing. Or that the TBTF banks have learned nothing.

They learned they can get away with anything, and that the bailouts will be forthcoming if they scare the Idiot-in-Chief  and the Con-gress men enough to motivate them.

I have learned to expect more of the same, and I'm positioned for that, as best as I can do so.

Anyone,in my view, who is not in a highly defensible position with regards to his or her own assets, shouldn't blame anyone but themselves when the bad shit comes down next time.

I noticed somebody (RE?) posted an article today with some big name pundit predicting a recession in 2020. You heard that here from me maybe 1.5 years ago, and I've repeated it several times since. My only amendment is that with Trump, it could come sooner. I like 2020 much better than 2018, if I have to pick. I'm still battening hatches and will continue to do so.

My point is just that these things are predictable and cyclical....and that anyone who expects this round to be the end, is probably wrong about that.

And just because there is discrimination and profiling by cops, that does not mean that the "clueless white people" who think "anti-white discrimination" is going on are delusional. It's legislated, and its very visible to white working class people.

I would suggest that this phenomenon looks very different depending on the amount of melanin one is wearing. Gangs notwithstanding, I'll bet you a Philando Castile and raise you two Alton Sterlings that white men do not have to worry about summary execution by cop as black men.

Race has been a convenient way to divide and conquer in this country ever since the aftermath of Bacon's rebellion in this country. Nathaniel Bacon was a Virginia landowner who wanted the British to take hostile moves against the neighboring Indians so he (and others) could expand their lands. Gov. Berkeley demurred, declining to buy himself a fresh new Indian war on the western frontier, form which he and his cronies would not directly benefit, and for which he'd have to answer with the home office. So Bacon organized his own militia, consisting of white and black indentured servants and enslaved black people, who joined in exchange for freedom, and attacked nearby tribes.

IN the fullness of time, Bacon died of a fever, the rebellion was suppressed. But Virginia’s wealthy planters carefully noted that a rebel militia that united white and black servants and slaves had destroyed the Jamestown. These swells and grandees  were deeply fearful of the multiracial alliance of indentured servants and slaves. The last thing they wanted was more uprisings of a similar type.

To protect their superior status and economic position, the planters abandoned their heavy reliance on indentured servants in favor of the importation of more black slaves. And differences in Virginia laws between  “white” and “black” inhabitants began to appear. By permanently enslaving Virginians of African descent and giving poor white indentured servants and farmers some new rights and status, they hoped to separate the two groups and make it less likely that they would unite again in rebellion. They enacted laws decreeing that people of African descent were hereditary slaves, and thus property... so when Roger Taney said in Dred Scott that "a negro has no rights which a white man was bound to respect," he had 150 years of English and colonial law at his back.

Which is why, hundreds of years later, President Lyndon B. Johnson could say, "If you can convince the lowest white man he's better than the best colored man, he won't notice you're picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he'll empty his pockets for you." Johnson, as a son of Texas, understood the politics of racism from the inside, saw it in part as a ploy to divide and conquer.

Then as now.

So, pursuant to our conversation yesterday, I saw this headline on ZH this morning. Now I like ZH, because they post a lot of good economic articles and good market articles too. But they try to panic the markets to make their short-selling clients happy.

Like the macro economist whose initials are BS (how unfortunate is that?), they tend to exaggerate things when it suits them, which is really, really often.

Hmmm. Or does it? Here's the long term dollar chart.
