Strange Cartoon from 50 Years Ago.
« on: September 21, 2016, 07:19:24 pm »
Once again youtube dropped a strange one in my playlist. I wasn't sure where to put it, but felt like sharing it, so here you go.



Shared merely out of curiosity. The whole "NWO" title is a bit unattractive if you ask me.

Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob

Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    Long ago, there was an actual belief in the greatness of this unique nation, and a concerted attempt to educate people on why it was a blessed place to live. 

    Now the kids are taught America is the source of all the worlds ill's. A recent interview with some Proffessor at an esteemed college said his students had no idea slavery ever existed outside the USA. That is just one of many examples.

    I was trying to explain to a staff member on my campus that the SJW movement was bad because it didn't promote equality of opprotunity, rather equality of outcome. This is bad because it is the antithesis of what our country was based upon and this is dangerously close to socialism. His reply was "Well, that's only if you consider Socialism to be a bad thing."

    As a red blooded American, I think rather piss on an electric fence than here someone utter that kind of nonsense. Who knows, maybe I'm not as tolerant as I need to be  :shrug. I consider Democide to be bad, the worst ills ever committed in the 20th century were via Government mass killings. If we consider death to be a bad thing, then Socialism is bad. If we consider that every human being has rights and that even the smallest minority needs to be defended and that the smallest minority is the individual- then by that logic, Socialism is very bad because it rejects the individual. If we believe what history has taught us that small groups with huge power and a monopoly of violence will always assert their will on others and commit horrible atrocities, then Socialism is bad. If we believe in a system where even the most selfish individual can benefit greatly because he followed his own selfish desires, yet helped society in the process by the fruits of his labour and innovative production, and we call that system capitalism. Then Socialism is very bad because it rejects this system almost entirely.

    This is just my random thoughts on the subject, but looking back, I actually like what I have so far. Perhaps I'll compile this list and make sure to chat with that professor again. I'd like to see what he has to say. We normally strike up conversation over good feminism and I like to debate him because he leans a little too far into third gen fem territory. And yes, he does the safe space and "privilege" non-sense  ::).

    I've yet to meet a safe spacer. I know I'll laugh my ass off at them. I won't be able to carry on a coherent debate or even a half way response aside from laughter and grasping for breath.

    As for a "check your privilege" schmuck, I haven't met one of those either. I know they're around though as I've heard others here talking about it. I'll make it my day's mission to push them to a frothing rage when I finally meet one.

    That won't take long.    Just tell them to check their own "privilege"  - you know, the privilege to be an idiot without fear of repercussion that was purchased for them by the collective blood, sweat and tears of everyone who ever donned the uniform of the U.S. military and fought and died for it.   Those were ACTUAL warriors - not some pouting, prancing bunch of witless wannbes who like to think of themselves as being involved in some sort of meaningful struggle.  SJW's my a**.   The only thing the "w" stands for in their case is either whiner or weenie.   :scrutiny

    Safe Spacers are strange. I was at a seminar to get educated in suicide prevention so that I could better help my clients (it also had some other mental ailments in it) and it was painful to sit through. They were trying to teach us the down and dirty on suicide, but yet were also trying to remain politically correct. News flash, punching your own card is in no way a palatable conversation. It sucks and I hate it every time I talk with someone in that state of mind, but if you are more concerned with my feelings on the subject and if it "offends" me instead of giving me the tools needed to preserve life- then I have very little respect for your course. I don't like getting spewed with bodily fluids either, but that's just part of my job. You know, you grit your teeth, remember why you can't carry Captains Wafers or Nature Valley bars in your scrubs pocket, and you press on. It's just life. You keep your edges sharp, powder dry, and never stand at the foot of the bed when the physician removes a trach tube. These lessons come from experience  :cool.

    Equality of outcome is just an unnatural concept. Nature is a competition, and some individuals are just 'better' if measured in some metric. If you try and equalize outcomes then you are holding back the 'best' in any given metric you are measuring.

    If you force equality of outcomes. Then you must push to the lowest common denominator. Which only serves to make everyone losers. It will not raise anyone to the winner's circle.

    It does make sense to attempt to push for equality of opportunity as a society. This should hopefully allow the best to rise as far as they can. Absolute equality of opportunity, like most absolutes, is just not feasible to implement. The best we can hope for is to have as few impediments as possible to an individual excelling.

    Life is not a zero sum game. We can expand everyone's opportunities by succeeding. An individual succeeding does not, in most instances, reduce other individuals opportunities.

    Socialism assumes the economy is one big pizza which needs to be split evenly so it is fair. We can grow the economy, and add more slices to the pizza. The fellows making more pizza tend to not get to keep all of the pizza they create(They must pay wages and buy supplies etc). So everyone tends to get a bit more pizza as the slices are added.

    Which is why Socialism is evil. It tries to stop individuals from having more pizza. Which everyone knows is morally wrong.

    Well that's just great .  .  .   :scrutiny    You've completely befuddled and quite possibly alienated our entire audience of slack jawed, stoner liberals.   God only knows how long it will be before another one starts hanging around in a vain attempt to try and troll us.   :bash
