PIERS MORGAN: Take ‘hunter’ Guy Gorney’s gun away and see how brave he is | Daily Mail Online

Wednesday, March 20, 2019

The definition of cowardice is a ‘lack of courage to face danger, difficulty, opposition, pain.’ It’s excatly what American trophy-hunter Guy Gorney displayed when he killed a sleeping lion.

I agree.

(Astonishing that we agree on anything?)

Make him be like the Zulu youth, who takes a short spear and a small reed shield to kill a lion.

Seems fairer.

The Final Level of Censorship is Here: The Banning of URLs

Wednesday, March 20, 2019

So while the telcos have defended their decision to censor a wide swath of material in order to shield people from dangerous information – and have encouraged social media platforms to commit to European-style information control, Kiwis and Australians will only get to know what the technocracy approves in order to ‘protect consumers.’

​Need to “punch” Big Tech in the nose.  Either they want to have the “common carrier protection” or not.  If not, fine, let them be honest about what they are doing.  Then, they are “responsible” for the content.  Can’t have it both ways, imho.

College Cheating Scandal, by Walter E.Williams | Creators Syndicate

Tuesday, March 19, 2019

I’m not sure about what can be done about education. But the first step toward any solution is for the American people to be aware of academic fraud that occurs at every level of education.

How about getting the Gooferment out of Gooferment Skrules?

Separation of Government and Education at all levels!

That’s the way to start.

Mom Shares Story About How Her 9-Year-Old Got Sweet Revenge On Her Bully

Tuesday, March 19, 2019

Bullying is a serious problem that can cause tragic results if measures are not taken to fight against it. According to PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, more than 1 out of 5 students report being bullied in the US, which is more than 20% of all students.

When I was bullied in First Grade, my Mom said: “You stand up for yourself and take care of this.  However is up to you, but it’s YOUR PROBLEM, no one else’s.”

Hmmm, be careful what you tell a human being to do.  They just might surprise you.

Now everyone in Catholic School in that day and age had a “book bag”.  And, being a Catholic School, we always had heavy books to lug back and forth.  I think that the good Nuns and Brothers had, as an article of faith, that carrying a big heavy book would impart knowledge by osmosis.

Any way, I was friends with the only black child in my class.  Maybe that’s why I was singled out for all sorts of harassment. So the morning after my Mom’s “advice”, first thing, before we assembled in lines by class, I walked up to the biggest of my bullies and, without a word, swung my extra heavy book bag with all the oomph I could muster right “up the chute” to his crotch.  Naturally, he went down like a rag doll and started to puke.  One of the Brothers ran over and “arrested me” sending me to Brother Principal’s office. It was next to Sister Principal’s office. The Nuns coming by scowled, but more than one of the Brothers gave me a disapproving but wry grin.

My Mom was summoned.  She, obviously was expecting something, because she didn’t go to work early like she usually did.  So she arrives on scene and goes into the office with a bunch of Nuns and Brothers.  After, what seemed to be a long time, I was summoned in.  I thought I’d get expelled.

Brother Principal asked my if I was sorry for what I’d done.  My mouth, leading its own life, said: “Respectfully, Brother Principal, No.”  My Mom half smiled; the Brother who was my home room teacher, definitely grinned.  Brother Principal continued: “Well, this is very serious. Will you do it again?”  My mouth seized the opportunity: “Again, Brother Principal, with all do respect to you, my school, and my religious training, I can’t lie. Yes, I’ll do it as many times as I need to.  But, between us chickens (my maternal grandmother’s favorite phrase), I doubt that I’ll ever need to prove that I’m no push over for any size bully.”  Brother Principal was slightly taken back and said: “Well, with that reassurance, I’m inclined to let the matter drop..  Go to class and stay out of trouble.”

I felt ten feet tall.

Evidently, the bully was on “double secret probation” already, and after trip to the ER, a few days rest and home, he returned to school a week later.  By the next week, he’d been withdrawn from the school and transferred to another parish school miles away.

And, I never had anyone “mess” with me after that.

I guess my “heroic aura” — or people thought I was bat shit crazy — encompassed the school because my friends, including the black one, were also hassle-free.  In fact, the whole school was “bully free” for the three years I was at that school before we moved to the Bronx.

The lesson to me was like when first I heard that Rodney Dangerfield movie line from “Back to School” about the Dylan Thomas poem … “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night”:

“Thornton, what does that poem mean to you?”

“It means… I don’t take shit from no one. I’m gonna pass this test. I’m stayin’ in school! Who’s next?”

I might be crazy but, I felt that way that day back in Catholic Grammar School.  In the zone.  (Whatever that is!)  Whenever I’m in that “zone”, I think back to my first time in it and know I can do anything I want to, anytime, as long as Im willing to accept the consequences.

I later found a quote that sums it up.

“I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.” ― Robert A. Heinlein

Dutch Reach Project – A site to promote the Dutch far-hand habit to avoid dooring cyclists, or drivers or passengers from stepping into on-coming traffic.

Sunday, March 17, 2019

A site to promote the safer far-hand Dutch Reach habit to get out of your car. It prevents dooring ‘accidents’ / crashes that injure & kill bicyclists. You too are safer because you naturally turn & see on-coming traffic before and as you exit.

LIBERTY: State of Tennessee tests of 10th amendment guarantees against federal overreach

Legal Heavyweight Will Represent Tennessee in Appeal of Refugee Resettlement Lawsuit
By Michael Patrick Leahy
14 Mar 2019

*** begin quote ***

The Tennessee case is the only refugee resettlement lawsuit based on the 10th amendment and is the only state resettlement lawsuit still active today,” Barnett added.

Substantial program costs of this federal program have been purposely shifted to state taxpayers over the years. In effect, the federal government is commandeering state taxpayer money for its own purposes, clearly a power that was not delegated to the federal government by the constitution. In fact, the Tennessee lawsuit argues that such dragooning of state resources by the federal government is forbidden by the 10th amendment.

“Objections to intrusive federal power have been around since the beginning of the republic. Federal assertion of authority over how a state spends state taxes is an abuse of the powers delegated to the federal government vis-a-vis state governments. Let’s hope the appeals court thoroughly airs this test of 10th amendment guarantees against federal overreach,” Barnett concluded.

*** end quote ***

“We, The Sheeple” really need to repeal the Seventeenth Amendment — “direct” election of Senators.

The Dead Old White Guys put this there to allow the Senate to represent the wishes of the States they represented.  A senator who permitted unfunded mandates on their state would not be there every long.

Of course, the “federalists”, from the Hamilton school of political theater, would like the States to just dry up and blow away.  Much like the ado about the Electoral College, the “federalists” seek to change the Constitution without the bother of following the amendment process.

For extra credit, it’s left to the reader to figure out, why banning alcohol required and Constitutional Amendment and yet banning “drugs” did not?  After that, you can think about the Sixteenth Amendment aka the “income tax” one.

Argh!

Perhaps, “We, The Sheeple” will come tot eh realization that “amendments” are just “amending” away the power of “We, The People”.

Argh! Argh!
