I'm sure some small portion of the population would be petty enough to discriminate against someone simply because they're an Atheist, but when you go out of your way and beg for controversy, people are treating you differently because they recognize a massive, moronic douchebag when they see one.

Exactly. Most of the funny looks heaped on someone wearing an Atheist, Christian or whatever shirt isn't going to be from bigots. Someone walking around in a stark white shirt with a religion or absence of religion on it in big bold letters is pretty obviously going to be wearing it to get attention and people will treat them as such.

Thats why I love the Prequels, it actually showed how fucked up the Jedi and the decayed corrupt Republic that supported them was. The real good guys of the Star Wars saga was the Empire.

While that is a reasonable point the thugs over at the ATF wont give a shit.

They literally raid factories for not correctly filing paperwork once in decades of manufacturing firearms. They hold law abiding citizens at gunpoint and zipcuff them for building 80% AR lower receivers. They banned 7n6 importation because someone made an AK pistol.

The ATF does not care about what is and what is not the law. They just want to flex their muscles as much as they can. The ATF is all about vulgar displays of power.

>A few weeks ago, we told you about “Operation Choke Point” -- an effort by Attorney General Eric Holder to put gun stores out of business.

>Basically, it works like this: The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), at the behest of Barack Obama, has declared that gun stores are “high risk” businesses. “High risk” businesses have been, up until now, a small category of supposedly disreputable businesses, which have included pornographers, sellers of drug paraphernalia, and payday lenders. alt

>The second step in the process is Eric Holder’s Justice Department’s “Operation Choke Point.” And its function is specifically to choke off any credit or credit card processing forbusinesses (now including gun dealers) who fall in the “high risk” category.

>Already, scores of gun dealers have complained that their banks have cut their credit or otherwise put pressure on them. Three articles detailing this effort to shut down gun dealers may be found here, here and here.

>The good news is this: Senator Rand Paul has just filed an amendment to the Science Justice Commerce Appropriations bill which will cut off Obama’s efforts to shut down gun stores by drying up their credit.

>The Paul language is Amendment 3292 to H.R. 4660.

>The appropriations bill is currently on the floor, but we expect the Paul amendment to be considered Friday or Tuesday. If adopted, the Obama administration would be barred from attempting to cut off credit to guns stores – just because they sell guns.

I know there's been a lot of controversy surrounding this guy's capture, so I'll be curious to hear his side of the story.

sorry deleted the orig post before i realised you'd replied.

it's a complicated argument - but when goatfucker1 is wiped out by a drone, goatfucker2 steps in cleanly and goatfuckers 3 and 4 follow loyally. by keeping goatfucker1 alive: goatfuckers 2,3, and 4 are in an uncertain situ re their chain of command. this can be manipulated into factional conflict especially when goatfucker1 re-emerges expecting their former position. in the meantime you get a period of inertia/uncertainty.

not saying that's what happened in this case, but its a silver lining to a very dark cloud.

Re vietnam: accounts mention hunting caucasians/blacks accompanying guerillas. At least three theories exist about this: first, that the rumours were just that - rumours; second, the NLF acquired advisors from the soviets or former french soldiers or; third, they were disaffected American draftees that were MIA. In any case this fell within mandate of units tasked with phoenix even if not strictly within the mission of disruption of communist political infrastructure (ratsancong) - for obvious reasons.

note: never read accounts of this elimination actually occuring, but i've certainly read reputable accounts of the contingency planning (possibly associated with AATTVN sources).

The gun lobby seems like a Goliath, but here's how to play David

By Tim Dickinson
July 14, 2014 9:00 AM ET

The NRA remains one of the most formidable forces in American political life. But it is not bulletproof. Since the massacres in Aurora and Newtown, states from New York and Maryland to Colorado and California have made modest progress against the gun lobby, passing a raft of new laws aimed at reducing gun violence. There are sharp lessons to be learned from these victories, and even more important ones to be gleaned from the playbook of the NRA itself. The seven strategies below can empower gun-control advocates to stop bemoaning their helplessness, and start carrying the day.

1. Commit to a Generation-Long Battle
The NRA is engaged in a long war. Americans committed to combating gun violence must be also.

By and large, the NRA doesn't win with flashy, high profile political fights. The gun lobby wins like the Baltimore Ravens of the Ray Lewis era, marrying competent offensive execution to a punishing defense that keeps opponents out of the red zone.

Step 1: Abandon all your anti-gunner principles to turn the law against gun owners

Step 2: Heavily arm the police and order confiscation of guns from 70 million individuals in America

Step 3: Oh my god! A civil war! Who could have predicted this!?

S&W sold us out to the Clinton administration.

Their reward was being bankrupted five times under five different sets of owners, IIRC. They're not even an American company anymore, they're owned by a British holdings firm now.
>> No. 93951 ID: 559ef9
They got 3 down and 5 for now, but I've yet to see the rest.

>Ideally, gun-control advocates would meet the NRA with a national, big-tent, big-money-and-grassroots organization all their own.

Got a loooong way to go from cryin' about it on facebook.
Anyhow, good to see that nearly all the comments are pretty much BTFO of the whiners.
>> No. 93952 ID: 1bddb7
Basically what happened was that in 2000 S&W agreed to do some gun control stuff the Clinton administration wanted in exchange for preference in government contracts.

The resulting boycott lost them 40% of their sales, a layoff of 400-800 people, the shuttering of 2 plants, a FTC anti-trust investigation into the NRA and GOA, and caused the British holdings company to sell off S&W in 2001 for $15 million (they had paid around $110 in the late 80s) to a company called Saf-T-Hammer (they make gun locks apparently) run by a former S&W guy who then went back on the agreement.

>You're watching the US military conduct what it claims is the first "successful live-fire tests demonstrating in-flight guidance of .50-caliber bullets." For the uninitiated, .50-caliber bullets are approximately the size of a Sharpie, and are used in long-range sniper rifles and machine guns.

>Now, technology developed by DARPA’s Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance (EXACTO) will transform the projectiles into miniature homing missiles.

>The agency explains what you're seeing above: "This video shows EXACTO rounds maneuvering in flight to hit targets that are offset from where the sniper rifle is aimed. EXACTO’s specially designed ammunition and real-time optical guidance system help track and direct projectiles to their targets by compensating for weather, wind, target movement and other factors that could impede successful hits." Here's DARPA's rendering of the projectile:

>EXACTO goes into greater detail, noting that "The system combines a maneuverable bullet and a real-time guidance system to track and deliver the projectile to the target, allowing the bullet to change path during flight to compensate for any unexpected factors that may drive it off course."

>We've been following the terrifying promise of smart guns for some time, but watching this live fire test was enough to make me spit up my coffee.

That would be amazing for hostage and terrorist situations where its a bad guy mixed in with a bunch of innocent human shields. Target the bad guy and be able to hit him with some Wanted bullet curving round that will only hit him with little or no chance of hitting an innocent.

Go for less lethal like you said so incase the dude targeted moves at the last second you only injure the non-target rather then killing them.

A weapon system like this sounds pretty damn practical. Just remember not to push the little red button.
>> No. 93890 ID: 63b86b
I remember this from a good long while back.

Made me think about using small arms as precision indirect fire. Your spotter goes for a walk, radios that he's ready, lases the target, you fire and bam. Some guy four miles away over a hill, in a house, takes a bullet.

Or something.

  an antimaterial rifle or HMG equiped with the system probably makes an effective screen against discovery by these. it's a pretty economical solution given that you don't need dedicated assets, helicopters, or a fuckton of munitions.

>pic related, its me
Footage of Stephen McDaniel’s (me) stalking Lauren Giddings in the hours before he strangled her offers a glimpse at the painstaking steps he took to slip inside her apartment.

His elaborate measures to kill her and elude detection have no bearing on the multimillion-dollar, wrongful death lawsuit Giddings’ family filed against him, a case all but settled this week.

Even so, the surreptitious video only further shows the lengths McDaniel went to snuff out the life of a young woman, an aspiring attorney like himself.

Kristin S. Miller, a close friend of Giddings who represented her family in the lawsuit, on Thursday deemed McDaniel’s spy video “harrowing,” and his actions “the most horrific, hideous ... premeditation I’ve ever seen.

“He was and is a coward and a loser.”

The lawsuit filed against McDaniel by Giddings’ parents essentially ended in a consent judgment filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia.

As part of the settlement, which awaits a judge’s signature, McDaniel admits liability for Giddings’ death. With McDaniel unable to seek parole in her murder for 30 years, the Giddingses reserve the right to petition for compensatory and punitive damages if McDaniel is ever released from prison.

The feminists hadn’t shown up yet, but they could, at any moment, with their protest signs and screaming. The threat of them was an infuriating and exhilarating specter throughout the weekend, a symbol of the oppression facing the men’s rights activists who had gathered to meet for their inaugural conference.

Early Friday before the opening session, a wispy trail of men — mostly white, college-through-retirement-age — waited for the doors to open outside of this Veterans of Foreign Wars outpost in suburban Detroit. One man talked about his ex-wife. A lot of guys talked about their ex-wives. Ex-wives and ex-girlfriends were often cited as the catalysts to these men’s realizations that the world had become a hostile and dangerous place for males. Such realizations are what activists sometimes call “red pill moments,” and although attendees coalesced around different issues — paternity fraud, circumcision, false rape allegations — the binding theme was that almost everyone here had experienced a version of a red pill moment.

In the months leading up to the International Conference on Men’s Issues, much of the rest of the country hunkered down on discussions of gender: a White House task force studied sexual assaults on college campuses. A shooter in Santa Barbara, Calif., killed two women and four men because, he said in a manifesto and video posted before his attack, he believed women had unjustly withheld affection from him. A #YesAllWomen campaign highlighted broader experiences of misogyny.

At the ICMI, where about 200 participants had preordered tickets, there was a parallel discussion of gender issues: Men, attendees believed, were the ones under threat of attack. This conference was their response, their rallying call to action.

“Men are second-class citizens,” said Gary Costanza, a pleasant gray-haired man from Long Island. He was particularly interested in divorce issues, saying that custody should always be split and financial child support should not exist. He just wanted the same rights as everyone else.

That’s all any of them said they wanted. The same rights as the “privileged women,” as various attendees described the female gender. The entitled, increasingly “narcissistic women.” That’s all.

Over the course of two days:

One speaker postulated that women are responsible for all domestic violence because, having all the power in relationships, they could simply choose not to marry violent men.

Equality is not the word we are looking for. The problem in contemporary society is one group becomes privileged at the expense of the other.

>> No. 93815 ID: c37c03
I don't think you understand. Maybe I should have said perceived losses? What the original group loses is being the preferred group. That CAN have an impact psychologically, but that's not the same as a concrete loss. They're different kinds of losses.

>however as of now women are the more privileged group.

Dude, unless you're in a pink collar job (where this is an actual problem, see the plight of male elementary school teachers) or living on the Island of Amazonia, no. I'm afraid women aren't the ones you can blame for all your problems right now. Yes, I know that would be easier.

The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) this morning announced uncharged mobile devices would not be allowed through to planes heading to the United States at a number of overseas airports.

TSA agents will ask travellers at checkpoints to prove their devices are powered by asking for the device to be turned on. Devices lacking power will not be allowed through.

"During the security examination, officers may also ask that owners power up some devices, including cell phones," the TSA advised in a notice on its website.

"Powerless devices will not be permitted onboard the aircraft. The traveller may also undergo additional screening."

The new security measures have been put in place to address concerns that mobile phones, tablets, laptops and other electronic devices could be used as an explosive device.

US security officials have previously identified Apple iPhones and Samsung Galaxy phones as requiring extra checks on flights to the US from airports in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

The agency had been directed to introduce the enhanced security measures at a number of unidentified overseas airports with direct flights to the US by US Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson last week.

You do know airliners are built to a higher standard than when this happened? An explosive would have to get through several layers of spaced material and it would have to punch through in certain areas which generally aren't accessible to passengers in the cabin.

This is another instance of security theater but I REALLY want to know what kind of intel they found to prompt this.

They likely found nothing; I think they might just be giving new/updated "justification" to an old rule, probably to help try and validate their continued existence.

Dumbest thing since sliced bread. Any idiot who can make a bomb out of a cell phone can fool a TSA agent just as easily. I mean, honestly, have you ever met one that you would remotely trust as security personnel?
