It's time for the new generation to speak out.

Maturity, and Extensive Life Experiences. Does give one an understanding.

One reason you normally will not have an 18-24 year old running anything.

Hopefully the Young, Inexperienced and Immature, will learn.

Each of the Fifty Sovereign States have a different interpretation.

Yes. Isn't that a problem that the US Constitution is interpreted differently between the states?
And it makes me wonder why?

janne...

The US Constitution is Not Law. Just the Foundation of Law.

All Sovereign States, as long as they don't violate the provisions of our Constitution. Can enact Any Law they wish.

Understand this: Some acts are Criminal in some Sovereign States, and not in others. Some Criminal Acts are Misdemeanor's in some Sovereign States, and Felony's in others.

If a criminal flees one Sovereign State, and in captured in another. He is subjected to Extradition. As between Sovereign Nations.

On, and on, and on....

Excepting Foreign Policy and War. Where the Federal Government (1 of 51 Governments) has absolute authority. Think of the USA as The EU on Steroids.

BTW: As with the EU. We also had a similar problem back in 1861.

BTW 2: Perhaps 1789 would be a better analogy.

Who wants to be associated to a mob sociaty?

Drumpf wants to run one. See that [fill in the blank] over there, he is [fill in the blank] and must be beaten down and devalued as a human.

Problem for Anti Trump voters:

It is a small faction of Pro Hillary/Anti Trump people who are committing most these disgusting actions and words.

Not Pro Trump.

Gary...

As the old saying goes, regarding The Left's assertions regarding Trump Supporters:

Do you believe The Left, or your lying eyes?

It the the Thuggish Left which may be enabling a Trump Victory.

Making my point.

ALL Movements have negatives.

All The Left can say is: Trump supporter's are as bad as us.

All Hillary can say is: I may be very corrupt, incompetent, and a fraud. But Trump is worse, if you can believe it, than me!

Looking more and more, like a Dangerous Trump Victory.

Secondly personal protection.
Right of self-defense US.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-defense_(United_States)
In the U.S., the general rule is that "[a] person is privileged to use such force as reasonably appears necessary to defend him or herself against an apparent threat of unlawful and immediate violence from another.

janne...


I do underatnd that is very difficult for Non Americans (and some Americans) to understand this:

The above is just a 'Starting Point'.

Each of the Fifty Sovereign States have a different interpretation.

Here, in the Sovereign State of Florida. You have no legal obligation to retreat from danger. Either within your home, or a public space. Called 'Stand Your Ground'.

In the Sovereign State of New York. You have no legal obligation to retreat from danger inside your home. But, if possible. You have a legal obligation to retreat from the danger in a Public Space.

As I understand it, the right to bear arm is to protect you from tyrannical governments, not to protect you from some criminals.

Janne...

The meaning of words, and thier application. Do change over the course of hundreds of years.

An example:

Our Declaration of Independence has the words "All men are created equal"

These words, at that time, only included only White Men.

On a hot summer day 1863. A tall, high pitched voice, uneducated man, made a "few brief remarks" and changed the meaning to 'All men, Black and White, are created equal'.

Decades later: "All men are created equal" included Women.

Yea and the best thing is the land the flag's on belongs to him so "the Donald" can't do F-A about it and if he trys with his "secret service" people the fun will start :-)

Hehehe.
The funny thing is that there is another country involved in this story about Donald's golf course.
Guess what country?

Donald doesnt realise that US laws dont apply in Europe.
No other country for that matter.

Shame on you Donald!

Throwing eggs at women, harassing wheelchair persons, chasing and tackling innocent persons, yelling...

Is effective in Europe?

Just wait till he comes over here next week to see his golf course bet he will be told by more than one person to " FU#K off back to where you came from "

Go ahead. Throw eggs at women, harass wheelchair people, chase down and tackle innocent persons, yell " FU#K off back to where you came from ".

They are enablers of a possible Trump victory.

Are they THAT STUPID???

Yes.

Wiggo posted:

Individual Freedom and Liberty MUST be placed above ALL else..

So what if one person, while exercising their "Individual Freedom and Liberty", impacts your's? What do you do?

The same as I posted. When I believe YOUR Individual Freedom impacts me, and others.

Why do you believe Your Enemies will not seize the power, you wish to have against others?

Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely

- -- Lord Acton


MK...

You are correct. Some don't understand.

If it weren't for constant campaigning the big advertising agencies would have to close down.

With The Internet and Social Media.

Does anyone care, or change their vote because of:

Campaign Lawn/Wall Signage, TV Attack Ads, Media Opinion Pieces, or Endorsements?

The Advertising Agencies, Media, Newspapers, Political Establishments, et al, are living in the last century. This also includes the Polling Companies.

Our Presidential Election may be the First 21st Century Election. Obama started this and won. Trump may have perfected and will...

The above is my fear. No... I don't believe, in this century. Last century's polling methods.

Exactly what was your point?

There is no difference in the numbers killed by deranged individuals and movements?

Numbers killed is a Red Herring?

Why?

That is a red herring because I was not talking about a mass movement but individuals inspired by hate speech. You willingly convolute issues in order to make chaos.

Nope.

A meaningful, deep response that contradicts reality.

Intellectually boring.

I just respond to silly, inconsequential logic a couple of times. And that's it.

You really need for me to state 2+2=4, and then read your disagreeing posts more than twice?

betreger...

Both you and Wiggo used to be intellectually interesting. But no more.

Moderator's...

I apologize for responding in the same manner as betreger, Wiggo and other personal attackers.

I do understand your concerns, and stated I would not respond in kind.

My bad.

ALERT !!! WARNING !!! DANGER < DANGER!!!

While looking at the SST I noticed in the top left the East coast of America has a problem !!

I Zoomed in and there it is

The North American Atlantic Current has a very big problem .

So I Google it and found this

http://www.livescience.com/46548-ocean-currents-linked-ice-age-length.html

Reading the above:

May be Natural or Man made. Our Present Knowledge and Science isn't advanced enough. They really don't know. Just Individual Scientist's Opinion.

Because of our very limited present Scientific Knowledge. Probably means we cannot really 'fix' this, and MUST prepare for the consequences.

Very silly and local people continue to die.


Many many years have passed since the American civil war. Really, is there any need for old out of date needs for a militia?

Reword that today as 'vigilanties'...? And worse as we continue to witness?...



So... Why has Obama been out-voted to save America from their own guns?

Only in America,
Martin

We are a Country that believes in the Foundation of Law. Where elections must have very limited consequences, regarding Individual Freedom.

Not 51% telling 49% what their Individual Freedoms are. Nor 90% telling 10% what their Individual Freedoms are.

Our Constitution, is neither old nor obsolete. Humans have died over thousands of years for these Individual Freedoms. Unless now, one wishes to pick-and-choose which Individual Freedoms are Obsolete. Speech? Assembly? Press? Self Defense?

The USA is a true United Nation of All Peoples on this Small Planet. Many who have fled countries that believed Individual Freedoms are transient, and subject to the whims of a majority of its people, or a Ruling Class.

Yes... ONLY IN AMERICA.

Whether anyone wants a semi-automatic handgun, or a semi-automatic rifle for personal protection.

Is an individual decision.

Neither I, anyone posting, nor The Ruling Class. Should have any authority to stop an individuals freedom of choice.

Small groups and Individuals

Clyde exactly my point, hate speech often inspires hateful behavior. Words can have consequences.
Cannot be correlated with Mass Movements, committing Mass Atrocities.

That does not address my point. I fail to understand why you live with a red herring.

What mass movement?
https://www.rt.com/usa/331355-islamic-state-fighters-numbers/
"the updated assessment is now a range of 19,000 to 25,000 fighters,” he said.

http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2015/12/07/muslims-and-islam-key-findings-in-the-u-s-and-around-the-world/
There were 1.6 billion Muslims in the world as of 2010 – roughly 23% of the global population – according to a Pew Research Center estimate.

MATH which a school teacher should have done ...
25000/1600000000 = 0.0015625%

So using your percentage for a mass movement, the Westboro Baptist Church is a mass movement of Baptists!

Hi Gary...

Whew!!!!

No need to worry. A load off my mind.

Not to many signing the petition. I bet most people don't know what the Arecibo Observatory does. Maybe add to the description that it also searches for Extraterrestrial signals if we don't get 100,000 signatures.

Just added my signature.

Very few signatures :(
