saltyvessels asked: I honestly want to understand what makes people like you think that the right to bear semiautomatic firearms gives you any defense against the world's most powerful military force. How could you possibly believe that you are any more safe because you have a rifle in your home? If the military really were to come at the citizenry with intent to do something, how could your relatively low-firepower do anything against thousands of armored vehicles machine guns trained soldiers etc etc??

Today, my history professor (with a specialty in historical political systems and theory) told the libertarian that we were arguing with that his ideas were “precious” and that he “needed to read more”. I couldn’t love her any more.

"Today my history professor was super condescending to her student as a way of shutting down dissenting opinions without having to make arguments and it made me feel very happy that this person whose ideas I don’t like was rudely dismissed by somebody in a position of authority because it validated my own feelings and assured me that other views must be wrong. I’m safe from having to question my beliefs… for now.”

My Dad asked me last night why I carry my 1911 in the house, what am I afraid of? I looked him straight in the eye and said, “The Goddamn Decepticons.” He laughed, I laughed, the toaster laughed, I shot the toaster. It was a good time.

Pre-school-to-Prison Pipeline: Studies confirm the dehumanization of Black childrenApril 6, 2014
Although African-Americans constitute only 13 percent of all Americans, nearly half of all prison inmates in the U.S. are black. This startling statistic has led the United Nations Human Rights Committee to publicly criticize the U.S. for its treatment of African-Americans. A number of recent studies and reports paint a damning picture of how American society dehumanizes blacks starting from early childhood.
Racial justice activists and prison abolition groups have long argued that the “school-to-prison” pipeline funnels young black kids into the criminal justice system, with higher rates of school suspension and arrest compared with nonblack kids for the same infractions. More than 20 years ago, Smith College professor Ann Arnett Ferguson wrote a groundbreaking book based on her three-year study of how black boys in particular are perceived differently starting in school. In “Bad Boys: Public Schools in the Making of Black Masculinity,” Ferguson laid out the ways in which educators and administrators funneled black male students into the juvenile justice system based on perceived differences between them and other students.
Today this trend continues with record numbers of suspensions as a result of “zero-tolerance” school policies and the increasing presence of campus police officers who arrest students for insubordination, fights and other types of behavior that might be considered normal “acting out” in school-aged children. In fact, black youth are far more likely to be suspended from school than any other race. They also face disproportionate expulsion and arrest rates, and once children enter the juvenile justice system they are far more likely to be incarcerated as adults.
Even the Justice Department under President Obama has understood what a serious problem this is, issuing a set of new guidelines earlier this year to curb discriminatory suspension in school
But it turns out that negative disciplinary actions affect African-American children starting as early as age 3. The U.S. Department of Education just released a comprehensive study of public schools, revealing in a report that black children face discrimination even in preschool. (That preschool-aged children are suspended at all is hugely disturbing.) Data from the 2011-2012 year show that although black children make up only 18 percent of preschoolers, 42 percent of them were suspended at least once and 48 percent were suspended multiple times.
Consistent with this educational data and taking into account broader demographic, family and economic data for children of various races, broken down by state, is a newer study released this week by the Annie E. Casey Foundation that found African-American children are on the lowest end of nearly every measured index including proficiency in math and reading, high school graduation, poverty and parental education. The report, titled Race for Results, plainly says, “The index scores for African-American children should be considered a national crisis.”
Two other studies published recently offer specific evidence of how black children are so disadvantaged at an early age. One research project, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, examined how college students and police officers estimated the ages of children who they were told had committed crimes. Both groups studied by UCLA professor Phillip Goff and collaborators were more likely to overestimate the ages of black children compared with nonblack ones, implying that black children were seen as “significantly less innocent” than others. The authors wrote:

We expected … that individuals would perceive Black boys as being more responsible for their actions and as being more appropriate targets for police violence. We find support for these hypotheses … and converging evidence that Black boys are seen as older and less innocent and that they prompt a less essential conception of childhood than do their White same-age peers.

Another study by researchers at UC Riverside found that teachers tended to be more likely to evaluate black children negatively than nonblack ones who were engaged in pretend play. Psychology professor Tuppett M. Yates, who led the study, observed 171 preschool-aged children interacting with stuffed toys and other props and evaluated them for how imaginative and creative they were. In an interview on Uprising, Yates told me that all the children, regardless of race, were “similarly imaginative and similarly expressive,” but when their teachers evaluated those same children at a later time, there was a discriminatory effect. Yates explained, “For white children, imaginative and expressive players were rated very positively [by teachers] but the reverse was true for black children. Imaginative and expressive black children were perceived as less ready for school, as less accepted by their peers, and as greater sources of conflict and tension.”

Anonymous asked: At what level of operatory is one permitted to wear blue jeans into combat?

cerebralzero:

Jeans are fine for militia work(olive drab or coyote cargo pants are better in my opinion though.)

PMCs sometimes wear them as well(Black Water pictured)

They are also fine if you happen to be Mike Vining

So, I think there is a flaw in the vehicle related deaths when compared to the gun related deaths. Yes, vehicle deaths exceed firearm related deaths. But this brings about two issues. 1) Guns were designed to kill and cars were not. 2) Cars get used daily far more often than…

All militants? I find that hard to believe. 

>drone strike kills 55 Al Qaeda militants

>”the identification process for those killed is ongoing”

Isn’t that like half a company

I don’t see how that’s a high number.

That’s like a pathetically small number for an entire flight. Like, that’s what, eight Hellfires?

That could be eight dead tanks.
