    THE ABSURDITY OF LAW:

    It is illegal to exchange sex for money.

    However, if you also video record it and charge others to watch, then it’s legal.

    This one I missed — apologies, Todd. Still, keep up the good fight.

  3. Posted to Facebook and Twitter

    Republicans like #romney and #bush are simply unhatched Democrats. What has their type EVER repealed?

    Notes to self — check out Yuri Maltsev, Requiem for Marx.

    And couldn’t get it done. What else?

    And that’s just Bush. What did Slick Willard try to repeal while “serving” as Governor of Massachusetts?

    Exactly what does Espanola have that’s worth spending tourism dollars on?

    This is what happens every time you raise the minimum wage, as Richardson did a few years ago, and Martinez wanted to do more recently.

    If #Hillary were to re-register as #GOP, how many GOPers would vote for her? Enough to elect her, I suspect.

    Y’all are forgetting Ryan’s “let’s balance the budget in 30 years” plan from 2012. So much for “fiscal conservatism.”

    “Ecotourism” is the eco-fascist ∅10 word for a camping or hiking trip.

  12. Posted to Facebook

    Or how about here:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecotourism

    Don’t forget this paragraph:

    “The term ‘ecotourism’, like ‘sustainable tourism’, is considered by many to be an oxymoron. Tourism in general depends upon and increases air transportation, contributing significantly to greenhouse gas emissions from combustion placed high into the stratosphere where they immediately contribute to the heat trapping phenomenon behind global warming and climate change. Additionally, ‘the overall effect of sustainable tourism is negative, where, like ecotourism, philanthropic aspirations mask hard-nosed immediate self-interest.'”

    I don’t care if it’s “accepted” or not. I simply don’t think much of the concept.

    Mind you, John, while I’m NOT a Udall fan (his stances on the First and Second Amendments are repulsive), I had even less respect for the crony mercantilist infrared-emitting meat puppet that was offered as an “opponent” to him in 2014.

    Where did you get the idea that I supported either “side” of the establishment, when both the GOP and Democratic Party are nothing more than con schemes to keep everyone not in the good-ol-boy loop distracted, compliant and keeping the Ruling Classwipes fed and watered?

    Their modus operandi:

    1. Milk the donors.
    2. Get as many of their people into public office.
    3. Using their people in public office, milk everyone else.

    I for one am excited about developments such as the 80% AR-15 lowers, Cody Wilson’s Ghost Gunner desktop CNC machine, 3D printing, the fact that you can make an AK-47 using a shovel as raw material for the receiver (search for it on DuckDuckGo or Startpage) . . .

    The hoplophobes and victim disarmers always forget these points:

    1. The United States has 12,000 miles of basically unenforceable borders. If people can be smuggled in and cars smuggled out routinely, how can they stop guns from coming in?
    2. There are hundreds of millions of firearms in America’s existing stockpiles, with more being added every day. I doubt that people panic-buying guns for the past few years intend to turn them in.
    3. America has the world’s largest stockpiles of precision machine tools. You can order a lathe or CNC machine and have it delivered to your home, with the only paperwork being the sales slip, if you have the FRNs available to you. Add in the Ghost Gunner I mentioned above . . . And that sort of tech is only going to get cheaper and more versatile as time goes on.
    4. Surveys of cops and military personnel consistently yield results showing 60-70 percent of them to be on our side to a large degree. Add to this the fact that the “fusion centers” in various states are parroting the DHS / SPLC line labeling veterans as “potential terrorists.”
    5. Most of America’s food production takes place in areas friendly to gun ownership.
    6. To go from one part of “Gun Free America” (really Hoplophobatopia) to another (the “liberal” states and big cities), they have to traverse the gun-friendly turf.

    I do, though it often seems pointless. Sometimes I even vote for a candidate who’s on the ballot. Most times I vote the air or write my own name in.

    I’m curious to see how your favorite (T.rump the Chump) did.
