  1. Federal court, free speech and — therapy?

    There’s something really odd in the USA.
    Has been so since separation from the U.K.

    Looks like the only states with recognisable morality are California, Maine and Massachusetts.

    Everywhere else has a far too high percentage of utter nutters.

    1. Yea, cause everyone in the UK is perfectly sane and reasonable…. news from over there does make it over here, you know.

      1. News in the US ?
        I haven’t found an honest and subjective news source there yet and certainly nothing that could be considered having international scope.
        But, what you say about the UK is true. The world is changing.

        The oddness in the USA that I experience is working side by side with obviously intelligent people that think it’s normal to rejoice in a gun culture. People who are overt church goers yet are racist, anti-semitic, gay haters and the whole bucket of crap making them shitty people.

        Coincidently, Channel 4 is showing right now a full length documentary on the wackiness of having school teachers armed in class but how the USA is actually starting to embrace this.

        And, of course, the news headline highlighted above on the judgements about gay conversion therapy.
        It’s been made illegal in the U.K. but now USA is saying it’s Free Speech.
        What kind of thought process allows that?

        Aliens from a different planet….

        1. Just sayin’ – “gun culture” is as American as apple pie and has been since long before the Revolutionary War. Since colonial days boys went to school with their books in one hand and their flintlock in the other. Back in the middle 60’s I was on my school’s rifle team. Coach ordered us to take our rifles home, thoroughly clean and lubricate them, and bring them back for inspection. I did the cleaning, but for some now forgotten reason, I left it home. When I remembered what I did, I told coach between classes and he told me, “You’re in high school now, not a kid anymore. Forget lunch, just go home and get it!” I did. I never again forgot to bring my rifle to school.

          As for arming willing, trained and able teachers, administrators and staff to carry on campus – hell yeah! Israel did this and terrorist school shootings came to an abrupt end. It’s common to see an Israeli school teacher with an Uzi and a few extra magazines. I would never teach school unarmed.

          An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a fool. A disarmed man is a slave. Lock up all the guns and you’ll still have a crime problem. Lock up all the criminals and mental defectives, and you won’t have a gun problem.

      2. @horsey:
        “Just sayin’ – “gun culture” is as American as apple pie and has been since long before the Revolutionary War.”

        That is just one reason I constantly call out your bullshit and right-wing extremist thinking. It’s clear by your post that you’re considering “gun culture” to be nearly, if not actual, what it is today.

        That is NOT THE CASE: What is “as American as apple pie is hunting for a family’s food supply and, yes, furs to keep warm (and to sell).

        What you gun lunatics refer to as “as American as apple pie” is more factually absolute craziness — bringing guns to restaurants, churches, schools and with the only intention of displaying what armament you possess in your trucks, coat racks, etc. is just fucking lunacy.

        And what every single one of you read and “understand” [sic] about the Second Amendment is again, total fucking lunacy — not to mention, total LIES.

        A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

        [LEGAL] QUESTION 1: What “militia” are YOU joining … or have joined (let alone any “well regulated militia”)?
        NONE IS THE FACTUAL ANSWER BY EVERY ONE OF YOU. There, that answers the question of WHY you need all those guns.

        [LEGAL] QUESTION 2: What “free state” are YOU “securing” … or is necessary for YOU to “secure”?
        NONE IS THE FACTUAL ANSWER BY EVERY ONE OF YOU. None of you are “securing” anything even remotely a “state” — That’s exactly what STATE NATIONAL GUARDS are for — NOT you fucking lunatics showing off your armament to each other and frightening the general population.

        I just provided the CORRECT ANSWERS to those CONSTITUTIONAL QUESTIONS and if you dispute EITHER OF THOSE, YOU ARE A LIAR and just another LUNATIC that loves guns for LUNATICS’ SAKE.

  2. US FEDERAL COURT > Judge is mistaken. It’s not a free speech issue, it’s a quackery issue.

    BRAZIL > Gee whiz, if every politician and celebrity in the USA who ever got death threats left the country, there’d be precious few of them left. Hmmm …

    TRANS STUDENTS > It is what it is. But be a bit skeptical. The CDC has never been a politically neutral advocate for public health – it’s always been run by radicalized, agenda driven Leftist docs and administrators.

    JAPAN > The times they are a changin’.

    ELLEN PAGE > Whoever that is. But then, I’m happily detached from the denizens of pop culture. Or whatever she does.

    FBI INVESTIGATES > BAMN. By ANY MEANS necessary? Really? Sounds like a threat to me. Bring it on, muthafuckers. I gotcher ‘means’ right here. Forget knives and bicycle chains, Lock and load!
    These are the same black-masked fascist ‘anti-fascists’ as Antifa. The KKK used to be the armed wing of the Democratic Party, now it’s these thugs. While I would like the FBI to keep an eye on white supremacists and neo-Nazis, all couple of hundred of them, these totalitarian communists are no less dangerous, no less violent.

    INTERNET > The Internet was the greatest transfer of power from the political and economic aristocracy, to the people, in history. Now that the Internet, along with ‘mobile devices’ affords the common man real potential for social disruption – from instantly organizing demonstrations, boycotts, and outright revolutions to providing the ‘news’ that is shaping public opinion on almost everything, it’s time for the empire to strike back. And it has. What? You expected no casualties? Silly you.

    SINGAPORE > “Leaking” private, personal health information is not a good thing, but neither is POZ people having sex with uninformed partners – that’s happened too. Prosecuting a POZ lover for not informing is little comfort once you’ve been infected. Anyway, it’s time we prosecuted the officers of companies who hold public records for not doing everything in their power to secure those records from hackers. Throw a few CEOs in prison and watch how fast security improves. Can you say, ‘overnight?’

    GIRLS’ PAIN > Any one who has ever raised a daughter is familiar with “teenage girl disease” – that recurring discomfort that all adolescent babes go through – constantly. Thankfully, adolescent boys are immune.

    PIRACY > With the coming of YouTube, all my beloved tunes are saved to my Favorites. I haven’t spent even one thin dime or one red cent on music in over a decade. They have a lot of the movies I like too -all free. I don’t need retail stores, or the Pirate’s Den.

  3. My dearest, sweetest, soft and cuddly Penboy, all loving and all nurturing, all tender and caring, read the mindset of the Founding Fathers, from the beginning until long into the 19th century, well after the ratification of the Constitution, that you may correctly discern their original intent. Behold:

    “NO free man shall EVER be debarred the use of arms.”
    – Thomas Jefferson, Virginia Constitution, Draft 1, 1776

    “What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not WARNED from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.”
    – Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, December 20, 1787

    “A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the GUN. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your GUN therefore be your CONSTANT COMPANION of your walks.” – Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, August 19, 1785

    “The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their RIGHT AND DUTY TO BE AT ALL TIMES ARMED”
    – Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Cartwright, 5 June 1824

    “I ask who are the militia? They consist now of the WHOLE PEOPLE, except a few public officers.”
    – George Mason, Address to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 4, 1788

    “The Constitution shall NEVER be construed to prevent the PEOPLE of the United States who are peaceable citizens from KEEPING their own arms.”
    – Samuel Adams, Massachusetts Ratifying Convention, 1788

    “The right of the citizens to KEEP AND BEAR ARMS has justly been considered, as the PALLADIUM OF THE LIBERTIES of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.”
    – Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States, 1833

    “Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined…. The great object is that EVERY MAN BE ARMED. Everyone who is able might have a gun.”
    – Patrick Henry, Speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 5, 1778

    “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the WHOLE BODY of the people ALWAYS possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when YOUNG, how to use them.”
    – Richard Henry Lee, Federal Farmer No. 18, January 25, 1788

    > Regarding the thought that draconian gun control is needed, behold:

    “This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty…. The right of self defense is the FIRST LAW OF NATURE: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, UNDER ANY COLOR OR PRETEXT WHATSOEVER, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction.”
    – St. George Tucker, Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Laws of England, 1803

    “Necessity is the plea for every INFRINGEMENT of human freedom. It is the argument of TYRANTS; it is the creed of SLAVES.”
    – William Pitt (the Younger), Speech in the House of Commons, November 18, 1783

    “To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them.”
    – George Mason, referencing advice given to the British Parliament by Pennsylvania governor Sir William Keith, The Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adooption of the Federal Constitution, June 14, 1788

    Sadly, the British people (and many Americans as well) have lost the wisdom of their forefathers, for today they possess neither the means or even the right of self-defense against criminal or governmental predation.

    Of additional interest:

    “A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity.”
    – Sigmund Freud
    “An armed society is a polite society.”
    – Robert Heinlein
    “There are no dangerous weapons. There are only dangerous men.”
    – Robert A. Heinlein
    ” … the right to defend one’s home and one’s person when attacked has been guaranteed through the ages by common law.”
    – Martin Luther King
    “That rifle on the wall of the labourer’s cottage or working class flat is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there.”
    – George Orwell

    And finally,

    “Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the constitution by claiming it’s not an individual right or that it’s too much of a safety hazard don’t see the danger of the big picture. They’re courting disaster by encouraging others to use this same means to eliminate portions of the Constitution they don’t like.”
    – Alan Dershowitz

    “On every occasion [of Constitutional interpretation] let us carry ourselves BACK TO THE TIME when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying [to force] what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, [instead let us] conform to the PROBABLE one in which it was passed.”
    – Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, 12 June 1823

    “A man’s rights rest in three boxes: the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.”
    – Frederick Douglass

    “Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.”
    – Daniel Webster

    1. horsey, true to [religious] form, you did what every single ignorant religious person does in any argument: flood the ‘forum’ with LOTS of total bullshit that doesn’t even close answer the questions put to YOU [plural]. Just like the ignorant religious, you’ll flood everything with anything and LOTS OF IT that simply don’t answer the questions put forth.

      I’m NOT like the the idiots you talk to on a daily basis — I don’t accept the bullshit of faith.

      There isn’t a SINGLE QUOTE that actually ANSWERS — LEGALLY — what I asked, again, LEGALLY, because NONE of those quotes came from the CONSTITUTION — but the core of my questions were VERBATIM from our Constitution.

      I’m not any lawyer, but in ANY courtroom, I’d ream you a “new one” because of your religious-based stupidity.

      1. The concept of original intent is intrinsic to proper Constitutional interpretation. The quotes I provided from Jefferson, Madison, Adams, Webster, Henry, etc. were not religious, they were political and ideological, and meant to provide you with that necessary ingredient.
        You are no longer arguing with me, you are now arguing with the Founding Fathers, and you don’t have either the standing or the credentials for that. Nobody does.

        1. AGAIN, you didn’t answer either one of my LEGAL questions — you know, what you would have to do in a COURT OF LAW. You just provided total bullshit — just like your local priest and parents did and you absorbed it like a stupid sponge.

  4. Horselips, you do realize that if the government wants to take you out they will just use a drone strike and all your guns will mean nothing. You do understand that right?

    1. Of course I do. But the government won’t be coming after me – I’m no rebel. But before we get all dizzy over the power of government, be reminded that a handful of Mujahedin fighters kept the USSR’s vaunted Red Army treed for years, and their successors, the Taliban, estimated to be around a few thousand, has stalemated not only the USA but all of its NATO allies for nearly a generation, and shows no sign of tiring. And they’ve done it with no access to modern technology or equipment, very little money, and very limited manpower.
      Same with the Syrian government. With all of its resources, including poisoned gas, combined with blank checks for technology and armaments, and manpower from Hezbollah, Russia and Iran, Assad has yet to crush a thoroughly disunited revolutionary movement never able to field more than a fraction of the forces available to him.
      After considering the mess a band of third-world illiterate tribesmen have made of the most powerful military in the known Universe, I shudder to think what kind of havoc an organized revolutionary movement, operating in a free society like the USA, having access to first-world technology, communications, and transportation could wreak. I hope the FBI keeps more than an eye on Antifa.
      Who can forget what Britain had to do to suppress the IRA Provos, and Colombia to bring the FALQ to the peace table. It took years to flush Erich Rudolph out of the woods and the Unabomber was at large for what seemed like forever. MS-13 still runs much of Chicago. Government power is very much overrated.
      Do not underestimate the power of small groups, or even individuals, believing in their cause.

  5. I wish one political post one day during my lifetime will share only good news… ;)

    Meanwhile, like a pop singer of the 70s, that pop POTUS tart also started gathering his own troop of Trumpets. Have you seen that poor sleepy kid invited at the State of the Union crematory, sorry, ceremony, just because he is bullied for sharing the same surname?

    Meanwhile, 2015 to 2018 are now officially the four warmest years ever on record, announce 4 different American and world climate agencies, and that pop tart still tweets during Northern Hemisphere winter “where is global warming when you need one?” I guess that anal douche needs an homonymous thermometer, and maybe another hot homo something in the same location if he doesn’t know that it was 49.1°C (120°F) in Australia just a few weeks ago, with some nights never going below 35.9°C (96°F).

    1. You want good news for a change? Listen to President Trump’s State of the Union speech. It’s full of good news, at least for us. I know you’re French, not American, but then,

      “Every man has two countries, his own, and France,” – Tommy Jefferson
