Holy moo. I'd almost forgotten about my favorite democrat. I hadn't heard +Dennis Kucinich 'a name in some time. Years ago now I recall my closest liberal friends telling me of him as a candidate for president, I seriously thought they were messing with me.
 
Where does the Fed get the money to bail these large corporations?
The federal reserve creates money out of NOTHING.
While we are losing our homes, and can't even pay our bills.

Yeah, besides the location, what the movies got really wrong is that the TMNJ are not the lovable good guys. They're out to get us.

I was able to catch Captian America, The Winter Soldier today. I wonder a lot of the time how anyone not liberty minded can like movies like that. /shrug

Also, reminded me heavily of the Nevada situation right now. Lots of spoilers I want to relate, but won't. Maybe much later.

"But suppose that centuries ago, Smith was tilling the soil and therefore legitimately owning the land; and then that Jones came along and settled down near Smith, claiming by use of coercion the title to Smith’s land, and extracting payment or 'rent' from Smith for the privilege of continuing to till the soil. Suppose that now, centuries later, Smith’s descendants (or, for that matter, other unrelated families) are now tilling the soil, while Jones’s descendants, or those who purchased their claims, still continue to exact tribute from the modern tillers.Where is the true property right in such a case? It should be clear that here . . . we have a case of continuing aggression against the true owners—the true possessors—of the land, the tillers, or peasants, by the illegitimate owner, the man whose original and continuing claim to the land and its fruits has come from coercion and violence. Just as the original Jones was a continuing aggressor against the original Smith, so the modern peasants are being aggressed against by the modern holder of the Jones-derived land title. In this case of what we might call 'feudalism' or 'land monopoly', the feudal or monopolist landlords have no legitimate claim to the property. The current 'tenants', or peasants, should be the absolute owners of their property, and, as in the case of slavery, the land titles should be transferred to the peasants, without compensation to the monopoly landlords."

~ Murray Rothbard


Bravo Mr. Rothbard!

May I be so bold as to add this account to Rothbard's robust parable?

Now, imagine that Jones is approached by Brown, with Brown saying, "If you give me a few special privileges, and perhaps even assert some additional powers to dominate Smith, I will be able to operate a business, selling to Smith, what Smith now produces for himself. If you make it difficult through your claim of rents on Smith, for Smith to produce, save and invest, and if you give me special privileges allowing me to produce more efficiently than Smith, that which Smith now produces for himself, then I can make a profit, selling to Smith, and I can share some of that profit with you, Mr. Jones. If you were to attempt to extract more rents from Smith, at a certain point, Smith will produce less, because Smith can see and understand whence his plight comes; Smith will anticipate and make all preparations to avoid further rent extractions. But if you give me some special privileges, and make some small demands on Smith, together we can extract more from Smith than rent extraction alone, because Smith will not see nor understand how what he buys from my production, came at the cost of Smith's own freedom. Now how does that sound, Mr. Jones?".

It's not the odds. It's the stakes.
Introduction
"Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good Blaster at your side, kid."

I'm just a regular guy I guess. The kind of regular guy who likes non-aggressive people following the non-aggressive axiom.

Because of this, you and I may be different.

This difference will literally be how we may see violence as, or as not, a moral premise. 

For the last three years, I have changed my life because of this. 

I feel so strongly about it that I have made it my personal responsibility to solve two types of problems that violence, or the mere threat of violence causes, which are:
  1. Not being a victim of violence by empowering people to defend themselves by the most technologically advanced means possible, and by
  2. Directly aiding those who have been the victims of violence by working as an emergency medical professional

So at its heart, if we are different in this way, I see our views on using force as the difference and I don't know if any discussions can happen by either of us forgoing this moral premise that perhaps only I bare. 

<Obama> But let me be clear </Obama> , I don't mean this to say that you are explicitly ok with violence, far from it, but I do believe if you just considered the "reason or force" axiom, that everything above it from a moral construct just falls apart. You may even come to realize the violence you participate in every day. 

Still here? 

I love analog gaming, defensive art pursuits, reading Sci-Fi and Fantasy, though lately it's been all non-fiction as I've found the psychology of stress/combat fascinating and helpful. 

Having been on G+ for a bit of time, I find that I post a lot of firearm self-defense related thoughts. If you'd like to be a part of that ramble, please let me know directly so I can add you to those circles, if by reading your own profile this reciprocal interest doesn't immediately stand out to me. Please include me in any self-defense pursuits you may have, and I do mean any form of martial arts, weapons involvement or not.

I work for one of the most prestigious civilian firearm training facilities in the United States. Know that all my postings are of my own, and not representative of my employer. Unless of course you are doing something unsafe, then by all means I will call you out on it. #drypractice I mean today. No, I'm not joking.

As of November, our range has had 62 students in violent encounters, all of which have been won by our students. If you have heard of a better record for student involved civilian violent encounters, I beg you to let me know. I'd like to train at your place too.  

I like engineering and science, and have the goals of doing these disciplines with greater wisdom. Please share with me anything along those lines. :)
