Around and about (from North Las Vegas this week)

  1. Trump and verse in the context of the Stasi.
  2. “Science” figures out repentence and forgiveness are useful. How clever.
  3. But, don’t dismiss science, they give you 6 foot scorpions to dream about.
  4. Of word vs deed. Gosh, I hope there is a place to spit when I actually hear someone use a term like “xe” or “zir”.
  5. Sometimes I wonder if it is the error of Star Trek and their “Prime Directive” crap that keeps us from actively opposing ISIS with little more than harsh words.
  6. This post, reminds me of an anecdote set in British colonial India. A Brit military chap is arresting some blokes for burning a woman after the death of her husband. He is informed by the outraged locals that “we have an ancient custom of doing so”. He replies his people too have an ancient custom of arresting people who burn women. Multicultural-ism is all well and good. It’s useful to understand the ways of thinking of the other guy. Doesn’t mean however, that your way of thinking isn’t actually wrong or even not better.
  7. Micro-aggressions noted. Those who promote a “theory” of micro-aggression may want claim that saying “affirmative action is racist” and/or “I believe that the most qualified person should get the job” are racist, wrong and “micro-aggresions”. They’d be 100% completely wrong. If you want to claim something true is false, go right ahead. But you’d still be wrong.
  8. Speaking racism of a more obvious sort, one of the main organs of the left gives a good one example of that.
  9. I remain confused about the Senate vote/non-vote for the Obama/Iran “deal”. If it isn’t ratified by 67 Senators, it’s not a treaty and isn’t binding. It’s not law and it’s not going to survive a President who doesn’t support it.
  10. On the basis of this, I’ve started reading this. Coincidentally I’d also picked up and started reading another book by the same author, Rob Roy.
  11. Your President’s (likely racist) legal eagles in action.
  12. An “ethical” question. My answer is no. And that the only person you can ethically suggest to sacrifice for her sake is your own.

    Well you can either give it a shot and upolad the video as is and youtube may or may not take it down depending on if slips under the radar and who owns the copyrights. From what I know the youtube copyright program works by matching video/audio clips to a database. If you have very very close to 100% match then it will say your video is copyrighted. So, in order to bypass the system you have to alter the audio or video. Search for how to get past the copyright on youtube.
