The FBI found the essential elements for at least 3 felony counts against Hillary, but did not recommend charges?  This stinks of high corruption.

"gun free" zones kill.
It is getting hard to ignore that mass public shooters keep choosing to attack locations where victims can’t defend themselves. We studied 13 different types of gun-control laws as well as the impact of law enforcement, but the only law that had a statistically significant impact on mass public shootings was the passage of right-to-carry laws. Right-to-carry laws reduced both the frequency and the severity of mass public shootings.

Proposition for debate:  A single simple universal action resolution rule is better than a plethora of rules that each apply in a specific case.

Idk. I just meant it may be interesting to think of the two extremes. And comment on it.

But i am also a little out there at the moment. So dont trust my words...

But, what i meant was. I consider Into the Odd to have a simple action resolution system, what I would consider to he special case by case would beeeeee... Hmmmm... I want to say Twilight 2000 but I barely remember it.

Is it so hard to understsnd the concept that- with freedom and liberty, there comes responsibility?
When we are free to choose our own path- as opposed to having government dictate or even a class system to determine what is your destiny- then it must be incumbent on us, individually, to make conscience decisions for ourselves. If you want to attain certain goals and standards then you must plan how to facilitate making them a reality.

Example : if the a little white house, two car garage, picket fence, wife, two kids, and a dog is your dream, it won't be given to you unless there is a silver spoon in your mouth at birth...
Equality in outcome is a false and egregious expectation of government whose role in a free soceity ends with equality of start. ... we are free to succeed as well as free to fail...
If you are taking no more effort to secure the means by with you might realize your goal than seeking employment at MacDonalds ... then you have failed your dream... flipping burgers is not and has never been advertised as a vocation. For government to insert itself into the private sector by mandating $15 wage is not a power granted it have per the constitution.
Government neither produces any goods or services but is in all ways a liability . More governmental intervention , the bigger the drain on the economy.

After all, an entity whose deficit is... $19,000,000,000,000.00. ... is not one to be giving financial advice .

Here’s 5 Facts For Your Liberal Friend Who Praises Denmark’s Socialist Utopia
Posted on January 30, 2016 by Christy Lee Parker

Today’s younger generations seem to eat it up and immediately demand we “be like Denmark” with free healthcare, free college, a $25 per hour wage, and a 35 hour work week. Then, we can join Denmark as one of the happiest countries in the world, but there’s just a few problems with that.

1. The Personal Income Tax Rate ranges from 55% to 65% in Denmark.

Yes, you read that right. According to Trading Economics, the Personal Income Tax Rate in Denmark is currently 55.60 percent, while it “averaged 61.40 percent from 1995 until 2014, reaching an all time high of 65.90 percent in 1997 and a record low of 55.40 percent in 2010.”

So, that wonderful wage of $25 just went to $8.75 to $11.25.

2. The Sales Tax is 25%.

Denmark’s sales tax is 25%. In the United States, sales tax varies by state, with 5 states having no sales tax at all, while California has the highest sales tax rate of 7.5%.

That $25 wage that looked so good until it was cut in more than half with the income tax, just got you even less. But Denmark isn’t done there.

3. Things cost more in Denmark.

Consumer Prices in Denmark are 15.88% higher than in United States, while consumer prices including rent are 4.78% higher. But the real hurt on you wallet is in restaurant prices, which are 43.93% higher than the United States. Don’t think you’ll save money eating at home either, because grocery prices are also higher. To top it off, clothing prices are four times that of the price in the U.S.

If you are in the market for a new car, you are in for quite the shocker since Denmark has a 180% car tax, meaning that $20,000 sedan will cost you $50,000 right off the bat. I hope you like riding bicycles.

4. Although their wage is higher, Danes don’t have more disposable income.

Average monthly disposable salary for Danes is about the same as the United States. Once you factor in the increased cost for goods, necessities, and entertainment, the average American is more “well off” than the average Dane.

5. Danes are “happy” because they are medicated, but their suicide rate shows they aren’t more happy than Americans at all.

While Iceland has the highest level of consumption of antidepressants, it is followed by Portugal and, yep, you guessed it, Denmark. As a matter of fact, it’s been found that the “happiest” countries take the most antidepressants. Hey, but at least their “happy pills” are given to them free from their government… and that wouldn’t be to keep them complacent or anything, would it?

Unfortunately, even with all the medications and reports of “happiness,” the suicide rate in Denmark has been about twice that of the United States for the last five decades. So, these people who are so much happier than Americans are killing themselves twice as often. While “happy” can only be subjectively reported, statics are an objective measurement, and with this suicide rate, it doesn’t support they claim of being “happier.”

In Denmark, if you use pepper spray on an attacker to avoid being raped, you can be fined about $70. This recently happened to a teenage girl who thwarted her own rape. Her rapist got away and is a free man, meanwhile, she’s facing charges and fines for defending herself.

Still sound like the utopia you imagined?
(From article)

~~~~~

Many Americans hear the word FREE , and all reasoning goes out the window.
Because the government has no money of its own, Denmark's
free healthcare, free college, etc is anything but free. There is no such thing as a "socialist paradise"

We are hearing a lot of propaganda once again frim the left before an election, and just like Obama- Hillary and Bernie will say anything to win.
Are we in better shape now than in 08?

No.

They want you to think mimicking Denmark is the answer.
Here's a news flash... we already have been headed down that road !

It's a large part of our problem.

Overall Budget Trends
Over the past 20 years, federal spending grew 71 percent faster than inflation.
Entitlement spending more than doubled over the past 20 years, growing by 110 percent (after adjusting for inflation). Discretionary spending grew by 60 percent.
Deficits have pushed up the debt each year since 2002 as federal spending exceeded revenue. Fiscal year 2012 marked the fourth consecutive year of $1 trillion deficits.
Although debt held by the public surged from 33.6 percent of gross domestic product in 2002 to 73 percent in 2012, net interest costs have held below 2 percent of GDP because interest rates have fallen to all-time lows.
In 1962, defense spending was nearly half the total federal budget (49 percent); Social Security and other mandatory programs were less than one-third of the budget (31 percent). Two major entitlement programs, Medicaid and Medicare, were signed into law by President Johnson in 1965.
In 2012 entitlements were nearly 62 percent of total spending, while defense dropped to less than one-fifth (18.7 percent) of the budget.[1]

A CBO study shows that the bottom three income quintiles representing 60% of US households are “net recipients” (they receive more in transfer payments than they pay in federal taxes), the second-highest income quintile pays just slightly more in federal taxes ($14,800) than it receives in government transfer payments ($14,100), while the top 20% of American “net payer” households finance 100% of the transfer payments to the bottom 60%, as well as almost 100% of the tax revenue collected to run the federal government.

A continued move toward Denmark's economic system will only continue the trend towards becoming a welfare state. That's what socialism is. Greater numbers of people dependant on the productivity of the few.


According to the 2012 Economic Freedom of the World report, America’s economic freedom has declined so greatly that it has plummeted to 18th place, even trailing behind Denmark. Now more than ever, America’s capitalistic society is threatened by burdensome government and a bloated entitlement state.


"It’s our duty to spread knowledge unless we want to see what happens when low-information voters cast their ballets based on fiction rather than fact once again"


The author C.S. Lewis is renowned for his insight into the tyranny of good intentions, which he described this way:

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."


We must all do our part to ensure a better economic future for our prosperity.

We must vote conservitive.

If you have a liberal friend, you've probably heard their praise for the utopia of Denmark. It's the shining socialist example of "free stuff" and "happy people," or so they'd have you believe. However, there's 5 quick facts you need to make sure that your leftist friend knows.

I told some people I know that this kind of thing happens and they accused me of making it up.  Apparently they've drunk to much San Fransicko coolaid to comprehend facts contrary to the "narrative".

My guess: The Lefto-Marxists have already clued their Ignorants in that D'Souza is a "Must Avoid" and so all of the people who need to find out the truth will be watching reruns of Friends instead. Just a hunch. Those that already know all about this, on the other hand, will probably get a few more interesting facts from watching it. As usual the divide will be split 50/50 and we can expect that media collusion and Democrat Party propaganda will ensure that the film makes no difference whatsoever. Just a hunch. Unfortunately. But I do believe so. I hope I'm wrong.

THIS IS EXCELLENT A clear understanding of why Socialism cannot succeed can be gained from this article... MLM

🔻
An economics professor at a top university made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan”. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A…. (substituting grades for dollars – something closer to home and more readily understood by all).

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.

The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.

As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. Could not be any simpler than that.

Here are possibly the 5 key points about such an experiment:

1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Democratic Socialism: At the request of 51% of voters, the government POLITELY takes the fruits of your labor and gives it to others. If you refuse, the government arrests you.
