General Non-Firearms Discussion / Re: Antifa Escalates in Arizona
« Last post by Kaso on Today at 12:36:52 PM »
1 - Then I get to lump conservative capitalism with totalitarian fascism.  Stop dealing with black and white, and learn there are greys.
I see the fallacy of that argument being that conservative capitalism is dependent upon a free market and free will of individuals, (even to a fault) while totalitarian fascism requires a supremacy of the state and individuals working (either freely or by force) toward the advancement of the state. (And I have argued before, that there is some merit to this.)

Democratic socialism is a spectrum.  The 'stronger,' or more effective the government is at equalizing wealth, the closer it creeps to Marxist Communism, which itself IS on the far end of that same spectrum.

So yes, there are grays.  Democratic socialism is an ever-darkening gray, on the inevitable path to total blackness.

1- No, I'm not confusing anything.  Democratic socialism is to communist totalitarianism what "just the tip" is to intercourse.
2- Nope, still a good example. There's a world of difference between saying, "I think I should share more of what I have" vs someone else coming along and telling you that you MUST share what you have.

Not related to the above videos, but one thing I am starting to see as common to the left, is their apparent disinterest in reproducing.  Two conversations I recently had with liberals reinforce this: The one is a 60 year old man with one son.  His son is in a years-long stable relationship with a live-in girlfriend, and when I asked his father if he had any plans to have children, the father was dismissive and indifferent to whether he did or not.  Whereas in generations past, a father would have some interest in seeing his line continue, this modern liberal could care less.

The other example is the company attorney, who is Very liberal. (He headed the local office of Obama's '08 campaign)  We were discussing various buildings near the courthouse, and one mentioned was the Family Court.  He told me that they were the ones to do paternity testing.  Fair enough, I mentioned that I would keep that in mind if I ever need a paternity test done... To which his dead-serious response was: "Just get a vasectomy, and you will never have to worry about it."  He has one daughter himself, who is a career woman, and may or may not ever get around to having a child.

In both cases, there is a complete lack of concern whether or not their only children ever reproduces.  Having only one child is okay...  For some it is the best choice, or maybe the only choice they have.  But if you are going to only have one, either they reproduce... or your line dies.  Liberals seem not to care. :shrug

I typically dislike MGTOW, but this one made me laugh. He illuminated the hypocrisy too well.

Jordan Peterson is pretty fired up in this one regarding the culture war of preserving western society from the current collective groups with Marxist undertones.

What does off duty work entail in a hospital?

The grown up rifle pictured above is the most versatile configuration that I have ever assembled.
It does everything I need it to do and it does these things very well without a weight penalty.
Even though the 16.25" barrel pictured is sub MOA accurate, I still believe the 18.00" barrel is the best short barrel option.

 ::) Your confusion is probably due to how the accessories are arranged for the other picture.
Not everything pictured is attached to the rifle 24/7, it's all there to illustrate flexibility.

General Firearms Discussion / Re: Those times when you were Right

Have more than a few...

Kahr K9- I had heard good reviews from both internet sources and various people that I knew, including our very own Booksmart, and picked one up for those times I wanted a smaller carry pistol. I picked one up, an Elite model, and was immediately impressed with the feel, the trigger, and how it shot.

S&W K-Frames- pretty much the quintessential revolver. I have shot a lot of them of various models and they all shot well. Most had good triggers and some had great triggers.

Browning Hi-Power- Pretty much the same as the K-Frame. I can't leave them alone because a little attention from a knowledgeable gunsmith makes this my go to 9mm.

Beretta 92- This one came about because of the plethora of them in the 90's. Growing up this was the sidearm of the military and in the hands of various LEO, in reality and in the hands of TV and movie LEOs, including Walker, Texas Ranger (granted his was a Taurus PT92 but 7 year old me didn't know the difference). It was the first pistol I ever bought and taught me trigger control. Never had any problems with it.

I finally got out to pattern my one shotgun.  Results were less than ideal.
