Yes, “gun control is not crime control.” More gun control equals more violent crime. Cities such as Chicago prove that. The gun is the “great equalizer.” This is especially true for women and men 60+ years old. My wife and I are 60+ and we need guns to protect us from younger, more powerful criminals. Do you really want to have a knife fight with an experienced criminal, and it is not his first knife fight?
Very rich people and families who are well-connected to political power have guns. Why should ordinary citizens be denied the same rights? Most citizens cannot afford armed bodyguards, we have to defend ourselves. Most liberal TV celebrities, movie stars and liberal politicians push for gun control. However, they have bodyguards with guns and/or they own guns.
proof that gun control does not reduce violent crime
Tonight I canceled my subscription to TheBlaze TV. I no longer support the Blaze or Glenn Beck. The reasons include Glen Beck’s recent (especially last 2 months) words against conservatives and his “apology tour.” Beck now claims that Donald Trump may be dangerous for the United States. This is somewhat unbelievable but see info at this link Glenn Beck against conservatives in 2016. It seems that Beck has been against such conservatives as former Texas US rep. Ron Paul. Here is what was said in the Atlantic mag: Glenn Beck and Bee by Atlantic mag. If Beck was so wrong in his “divisive” rhetoric, then we conservatives are probably wrong in our policies and beliefs during the last 50 years. Perhaps Beck was never a true conservative during the last 10 years.
It seems that Mr. Putin is helping his country, though Communism is a failed system.
There are only two ways that Russia could have had a substantial effect on our presidential election: they spent $100 million or more promoting Trump; and they got illegal voters to vote for Trump. They did neither. H. Clinton put classified and secret information on her Email server where Russia, China, and several other countries could hack into it. Blame any hacking of her server on Hillary Clinton. Spending less than about $100 million dollars would have had little effect on this 2016 election for president. The Clinton campaign spent more than $400 million than the Trump campaign, and Hillary Clinton lost. There is no evidence that Russia spent even $10 million on Trump’s campaign. We did have some illegal voters casting votes for H. Clinton. It was the truth that hurt Clinton’s campaign and not Russia.
Donald Trump and the president of Taiwan talked on the phone this month. Jimmy Carter sold out the US (again) by pledging to China that he would not talk to the president of Taiwan. We have a treaty with free China, Taiwan, but are not supposed to talk with them at high levels. Why? See Trump calls president of Taiwan to find out the reasons.
Much of the manufacturing operations of the United States and Western Europe have gone to China since 1979. See the link above to find out some of the reasons. The US has lost millions of decent and good-paying jobs to China during the last 35 years. Both major political parties have agreed to the loss of these millions of jobs. Trump has promised to stop this tragedy.
The BRExit, British Exit, and the Donald Trump victory are similar. The old Establishments have lost power this year of 2016. Citizens want liberty and control of their countries back to the citizens.
Citizens want their borders protected and their labor markets protected. People also lock their doors at night to keep out unwanted criminals and other people. A country without borders is no country. Citizens in Britain want to take their country back; BrExit is a good move. Open borders let in terrorists and criminals into a country. This only makes sense. Too much importation of workers, be they college grads or others, leads to more unemployment and lower wages within the country.
Mr. Putin puts it in perspective and says that thousands of Russians gave their lives to free Poland from Nazi Germany. This is reasonable historic perspective. Putin talks about Russia and Poland 1938 2016
White Privilege is a term for what? Do I get lower prices in stores for being white? If I am 8% Native American, do I get a bonus or does my privilege decrease by 8%?
Will the government send me a special check for my “white privilege” or do I get no bonus? If I have a white dog, does my dog get a 10% discount at the vet’s office? Since I am white or mostly white, will my Social Security payments go up by at least 9% in 2017?
If the answer is “no” to these questions, it seems that my White Privilege is equal to zero. Hmmm.
probability of 150 amino acids arranging in the right sequence is roughly
20 ^150 x 2 ^ 149 = 20 ^150 * 2 ^ 149
1.4272E+195 * 7.14E+44 = 1.0185E+240 || 1.4272E+195 is about 10 ^195
The chance probability is therefore about 1 in 10 ^240 or 1 in 10 to the 240th power. This is also 10 ^ -240 which is 10 to the minus 240th power.
* is times
number of atoms number of seconds in
in Earth 200 million years
Total probability of arranging 150 amino acids in 200 M years with 1 interaction per second, not counting correct left orientation of amino acids
number of atoms in Earth = 10 ^50
number of seconds in 200 million years = 10 ^16
chance probability for 150 probability amino acids = 10 ^ -195
total probability = 10 ^50 * 10 ^16 * 10 ^ -195 = 10 ^ -129 or 10 to the minus 129th power; or 1 chance in 10 ^129
comparison: number of atoms in Earth = 10 ^50
“Earlier this summer, ATF released an Explosives Industry Newsletter that changed the agency’s treatment of nitrocellulose, the primary component in smokeless powders used in modern ammunition. [emphasis mine, KSS] This change had the potential to seriously disrupt ammunition supply in the United States because it changed a long-standing ATF policy that exempted properly “wetted” nitrocellulose from treatment as an explosive under federal law.
NRA and industry raised these concerns to ATF and any change in ATF’s treatment of nitrocellulose is now officially delayed. In an addendum to the earlier newsletter, ATF announced that it “will conduct further industry outreach concerning wetted Nitrocellulose. In the interim, previously authorized industry practices concerning wetted Nitrocellulose will not be affected.” ” (Source: Internet; https://www.nraila.org/articles/20160831/atf-delays-any-changes-to-nitrocellulose-regulation ; 9/25/2016.) gun powder regulation 2016
The degrading of gun powder for ammunition would be a sneaky way of gun control. The Second Amendment protects our gun rights, including ammunition.
The video below is very good. Real assault weapons after about 1960 are machine guns. That is what you need to assault a military position. The US Constitution gives us the Second Amendment to protect US citizens. This Amendment is not outdated as the other 9 of the first 10 are not outdated. The individuals who constructed these 10 Amendments are very intelligent and educated in the history of the previous 1,900 years. Our guns are used to protect US citizens against criminals and dictatorships.

I do not believe God knows everything that each person, a freewill being, will do in the future because the future has not occurred and you cannot know what freewill agents will do. Some people say that God does not know all of the future because if He did know, then God would have to change the future. Some say God cannot know because of freewill. If He does know the future of all freewill agents, then He has to change the future to protect them, which would violate freewill it seems. If the Creator knows all of the future, then why did He (at the time of the Flood) regret making mankind?
Christians and others will continue this debate about freewill and what God knows for at least a few more years.
Hillary has emotional illiteracy and fits of rage. The strange laughing is a sign of some deep problem in her mind. She may have had a stroke within the last few years and may now suffer from its side effects. She is unfit to be the mayor of a small town. See the link below for her likely psychological condition.

German, French, Swedish and other populations have tried multi-culturalism and most of it has failed. Maybe it would be a good idea to import people who have modern job skills, instead of importing thousands who need more welfare. Countries such as Germany, France and Sweden seem to be on a self-destruct mode; and some of their leaders are unrealistic and indirectly support more crime in their countries. These countries have unemployment problems; and yet they import more people who will either be put on welfare or take jobs away from the citizens. Importing more workers does not create jobs, but it usually creates greater unemployment in the US and in Western Europe. It can also lower wages for jobs that are 98% or more filled.
Britain Exit shows that people want freedom, their own country and economic prosperity in 2016.

Scientists and technicians are using AI (Artificial Intelligence) to produce “advanced intelligence.” Where will this lead them to in this world? It will lead to humans being replaced by AI and super computers. This will start to increase rapidly and geometrically by 2018-2020. The robots will replace many workers by 2020, but AI and super computers will begin replacing scientists and engineers by 2021. Some atheists and occultists will hail this as the next step in human evolution. It will be the destruction of hundreds of millions of people, and then the world will get worse.
Yes, these foolish human scientists, atheist and occult leaders, and their followers will end up as pawns to Dark Forces and a few very powerful people and super computers. It will be sad.
There is a convergence of GRIN (Genetics, Robotics, artificial Intelligence, and Nanotechnology) that is taking place in 2016 and started a few years ago. Horn wrote about it in his book Forbidden Gates. Humans have a lot to fear from GRIN during 2018-2027 (10 years from January 2018 through December 2027.) GRIN may replace from 20% to 40% of human workers in the US and Europe by July 2026–only 10 years.
The Factory of the Future back 30 years ago (1986) could produce many different products with humans, robots and computers. A factory that a few years earlier required 2,000 employees could with the Factory of the Future produce the same types and amounts of products with about 200 employees, or 10% to 15% (200 to 300.) Some industries will probably see a decrease of 40% to 85% of their employees (including workers and managers) during the next 6 years. The retail shops, including cafes, will be hit hard by replacements during the next 6 years.
AR-15s are Not assault weapons but are needed by citizens of the USA for protection. Real assault weapons have an automatic mode. Legal guns, not including for the police and military, are semi-automatic. These guns only shoot one bullet at-a-time.
See AR-15s and assault weapons 2016 Guns such as AR-15 and AK-47 were assault rifles decades ago, which ended in the 1950’s. Soldiers since 1960 have used automatic guns, some shoot 400 or more rounds per minute. If you were able to shoot 1 round per second, that would only be 60 per minute. Because of the recoil and shooter’s ability, it would be difficult to shoot even 40 rounds per minute from a semi-automatic pistol or rifle.
Rifles such as the AR-15 and AK-47 are not assault rifles but are good for civilian defense. These rifles are owned and used by many bodyguards of rich families and politicians. ALL US citizens need the right to own and carry guns for self-protection, not just the rich and politically well connected.
My Toshiba 1 Terabyte external hard drive arrived today. The price was right (about $60) and
I bought a case for it. I backed up many files and still have about 963 Gigabytes of free space.
