upublic.tv Introductory Survey

Filed under: Fun, Media, Quizzes / Surveys, Social Life — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 2:01 AM (02:01)

Recently I decided that it’s time to resurrect The Weekly Sedition as a video series or radio show or podcast or whatever – something besides a simple blog.

Since I last produced a show at Channel 27, the station has switched hands, from Quote Unquote to uPublic TV. So recently I stopped by the uPublic offices to see what the signup procedures are – I was told to go to the site, which redirected me to the uPublic meetup.com group. There I had to fill out an introductory survey to join the group. Here are my answers:

Write a short bio

I was a producer at Channel 27 for a few years and am looking to get back into the game. More information is available upon request.

Please answer these questions completely. How did you find out about his group?

UPublic — From the web and another producer.

This meetup — I talked to someone at the 3rd St NW office. He told me to sign up at http://upublicans.com, which redirected to here.

Why do you want to join this group?

To learn how to develop content for Channel 27 and other media outlets, and to “get back in the game.”

How much television program production experience do you have?

About 12 years on Channel 27 through Quote Unquote.

Do you understand that you are required to attend two mandatory classes before getting access to any other resources?

Yes. Quote Unquote has a similar requirement. Most organizations are like that, and the ones that aren’t are asking for trouble.

Besides the two mandatory classes, what other classes would you like to attend?

What’s available, and what are the requirements (costs, prerequisites, etc.) ?

    Considering that this “F” grade most likely comes from the Brady Campaign or similar outfit, that’s enough of an “A” rating for me.

    I’ve been arrested in traffic like this a few times by APD. I can tell you that BCSO, RRDPS and Corrales PD aren’t much better, for varying reasons.

    I recommend reading William N. Grigg’s blog Pro Libertate — this sort of stuff is something that he covers on a regular basis.

    Some things to be said in favor of political theater:

    A. If you play your cards right, you don’t have to shell out any FRNs for it.
    B. It’s often interactive, just like a video game, only without some overpriced game console.
    C. You don’t have to sit still and be quiet the whole time.

    In other words (what Mr. Obama REALLY meant), he truly does want to confiscate all of the weapons owned by private civilians, but the current legal framework won’t let him do that.

A Question about Abortion and Homosexuality

Filed under: Philosophy — Tags: , — mikewb1971 @ 5:09 AM (05:09)

If the biotech and medical fields were to devise some sort of prenatal test, accurate to 99 percent, that could determine whether the baby-to-be was going to be heterosexual or homosexual, would it then be acceptable to abort that baby if it turned out to be homosexual?

This of course assumes that sexual orientation is a genetically-determined trait – something that has yet to be scientifically proven.

    So what are the solution(s) to problems caused by illegal immigrants that

    1. don’t violate the Non-Aggression Principle?
    2. don’t allow federal or state government to become more powerful, more intrusive or more expensive?

    Let’s avoid becoming what we’re fighting against, OK?

  2. Posted to Facebook

    National sovereignty must be derived from individual sovereignty. Otherwise it just becomes another excuse for big, intrusive, expensive government at best, and tyranny at worst.

  3. Posted to Facebook

    I personally don’t see it as a winning issue for the Libertarian Party, like I do see gun rights as a winning issue. Which was the issue that started this thread.

  4. Posted to Facebook

    More to the point, I don’t see giving more power to Washington DC or Santa Fe as the solution to any issue.

    Michael J. Weber — It’s not an issue that I’m going to get excited about.

    Michael J. Weber — Why should I answer your question when you can’t be bothered to answer mine:

    So what are the solution(s) to whatever problems caused by illegal immigrants that

    1. don’t violate the Non-Aggression Principle?
    2. don’t allow federal or state government to become more powerful, more intrusive or more expensive?

    Rheanna Butler — Did you actually ask me a question? Anyway, you didn’t answer mine:

    Do people in government serve at our pleasure, or do we exist at theirs?

    Michael J. Weber

    What is your proposal to end illegal immigration that:

    1. doesn’t violate the Non-Aggression Principle?
    2. doesn’t allow federal or state government to become more powerful, more intrusive or more expensive?

  8. Posted to Facebook

    Mark Nolan — Sixty, seventy percent of the military and law enforcement agree with me.

    So why is that these shooting sprees don’t happen so much at private schools or with homeschooling families? There are plenty of homeschooling parents who agree with me and teach their kids about gun safety and usage.

    And why don’t these sorts of shootings happen at gun shows? By your logic, guns shows should be ankle-deep in blood — plenty of guns there, with plenty of ammo.

  1. Re: Does the 2nd Amendment give one the Right to Bare Heads?

    I am getting pretty forgetful in my old age so I probably am not up to date on the 2nd amendment of the constitution. I know it says one has the right to bear arms, does it include bare heads?

    Truly an irrelevant question. In military matters, the Founders wanted the private citizenry to have parity with (if not supremacy over) the federal government.

    The same goes for the states, as quite a few state constitutions have similar (or stronger) provisions.

    How would one justify repealing this law? What sensible arguments can one give?

    Either you support the concepts of individual liberty and responsibility, or you don’t.

    What is coming next? No seat belts in cars?

    Who forces you to not wear a seat belt? Did someone break into your car and remove all of the seat belts?

    Mr. Grigg adds the following comment to the Facebook posting of this link:

    “The UN and its allied groups are seeking to establish national monopolies on firearms, and “norms of non-possession” for civilians. To see how this works, review the history of Rwanda, circa December ’93 – June ’94.”

    http://facebook.com/william.n.grigg/posts/569068303124041

    What the UN control freaks and their cronies in America’s Imperial District are seeking is the “legitimate monopoly of force.”

    Good point, Ish! The “F” rating they’re quoting here is probably from the Brady Campaign, which translates to an “A” rating for me.

  1. Re: Taking Down Blocks

    Most of my blocked list on Xanga are spammers. If they want to use “my” sites here to advertise their pills and knock-off watches, purses, etc., the least they can do is offer me a cut of the take.

  2. Posted to Facebook

    Mark, they’re more properly called _sport utility rifles_ or _military-pattern rifles_ — not many who know they’re talking about where guns are concerned take the term “assault weapon” seriously.

    But David is right — the Founders wanted the civilian populace to have military parity with (if not supremacy over) the federal government.

    How is it that those who want to deny civilians ownership of a .22LR revolver have no problems with the cops using the same sort of weapons they don’t want civilians to own, as well as body armor, armored fighting vehicles, drones, etc., etc.?

    Yes, Rex, what exactly are we missing here?

    The phrase “assault weapon” belongs in quotes because it’s a term dreamed up by gun-owner-hating bigots to sow confusion about the difference between select-fire rifles like the M16 and the semi-automatic rifles that are cosmetically identical (they look the same).
