  1. Get the Glock in 10mm or .40 S&W ...

     

    10mm is definitely beast.

    a few comments though. ralphy is talking about carrying for possible 'sketchy' times in the near future.

    .40 is the most used caliber by LE. lots of ammo around. .45 is also the way to go. if money is an issue, be advised .45 is usually cheaper than .40. remember, if you cant feed it, it will do you no good.

     

    first handgun you are probably better off looking for a side arm you can conceal but is big enough to give you decent accuracy, as opposed to a .38 snub nose for instance. a glock 23 is a great choice, or a 30. private sales are not hard to come by in gun friendly states. although, id rather have either of the above, if a private sale 17 came up cheap, i'd hop on it.

  2. these look like they have a ton of custom options...and pretty decent baseline price.

     

    great starting place.

    all you really need is an extended mag release and it will run like champ. get a bunch of mags, even factory mags these days dont last that long. dont use aftermarket mags at all, they suck.

     

    if you want to customize, i recommend a hogue stock, a bull barrel of some sort will greatly improve accuracy.

  3. what would be a good rifle to start with?

     

    i have only handgun and shotgun experience....

     

    the crazier things get politically the more i realize that exercising our right to bare arms is important.

     

    i would like something that will have some good range, affordable and will be pretty easy for a beginner.

     

    im a believer in buy once, cry once.

    im a fan of the AR platform.

    i would definitely not ruling out an AK platform, but by the time i modify it to do what i need it to do, im at the cost of an AR15.

     

    if i were to buy one rifle to cover the most bases, i'd buy something in .308. m14 variant, FAL, AR platform, etc.

     

    there isnt much you couldnt do with a .308 battle rifle of some sort, a 18" 12g, and a side arm.

  4. I think I'm going to get a Glock 9mm one of these days, any haters wanna hate on that choice?

     

    i refuse to own a handgun that doesnt start in '4'

     

    but all kidding a side, i definitely dont want to get shot with a 9mm.

  5. just heard 1%'er michael moore, net worth of 50m or more, is calling for people richer than him to 'give back' 1 million dollars to the US government for them to squander.

    great idea.

     

    i've never heard of a bigger idiot in my life than michael moore.

  6. It doesn't counter his argument to abolish the fed, but it does explain just how complex this issue of economic policy is, humanizes the fed and describes what the fed did differently in 2008 than it's ever done before. There are two tribes of economists. There's one that agrees with AOD, and the other one, which is the majority of economists that couldn't see America without a central bank.

     

    you know in the early 19th century, most people in american couldnt see black slaves living free. the objections ranged from them being savages to 'who will pick the cotton?' little did we know that a century and a half later cotton is being picked by gps guided cotton gins. whodathunkit?

    i think the moral objection to the FED is first and foremost, the practical objections to it run a close second. the other main objection, that it causes infinitely more harm than good is also quite valid.

  7. we dont need to debate this in 2011? what does that even mean?

    the FED caused the housing collapse, they are largely responsible for extending it by still having interest rates to low.

     

    the dollar is essentially debt.

    the fed prints money out of thin air to buy treasuries and this toxic debt you are talking about. this inflation results in devaluing the dollar, higher prices and keeping this current financial collapse going. i fail to see how we dont need to discuss this in 2011. if it wasnt for the FED the government wouldnt be enabled.

  8.  

    Meanwhile yesterday they tried to go protest the Fed. The fucking fed! If you're one of those crazy tinfoil Zeitgeist movie watchers who think their dreams will be raped by shapeshifting reptilian freemasons, then you hate the central bank. The people who actually pay attention to the economy know that the Fed did an amazing thing for the US by buying a crapload of toxic assets—something that totally went against the business model they had in the great depression. It kept us out of a second great depression and yet people still think the Fed is part of this great big "Bank Cartel." Then they accused Goldman Sachs of concealing Greece's debt from investors and are currently heading a criminal investigation into the matter.

    .

     

    this is just funny.

    your are basically trying to label anyone who actually understands economics as a believer in 'reptilian freemasons' trying to take over the world.

     

    the FED didnt 'save' us from any depression, THEY CREATED IT.

    now you are saying because they bought a bunch of worthless debt, printed a bunch of money devaluing all dollars in existence

     

    the FED is perpetrating the system of debt, inflation and is largely responsible for allowing the government to get out of control. they manipulate credit artificially resulting in booms and busts. they ARE the reason for the business cycle.

     

    now you are saying that the very institution responsible for the business cycle, saved us from it. governments, GSE's, and govt protected monopolies are diseases masquerading as their own cure.

    your statements reveal your true logic:

     

    governments are good at breaking your leg, handing you a crutch and then saying: "see, if it wasnt for the government, you wouldnt be able to walk.'

  9. i think about 5-10% of these people in these occupy movements, 'get it.'

    the vast majority are ideologically on the spectrum from soft social democrats to hard marxists to anarcho-communists.

     

    there basic argument is that corporations control the government and its regulations, so we need the government to control the corporations. its circular. its impossible. the problem is GOVERNMENT. absent government, no corporation has any advantage or coercive power over anyone else.

     

    look at the new list of demands:

     

    http://occupywallst.org/forum/proposed-list-of-demands-for-occupy-wall-st-moveme/

     

    Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This demand can only be met by ending "Freetrade" by re-imposing trade tariffs on all imported goods entering the American market to level the playing field for domestic family farming and domestic manufacturing as most nations that are dumping cheap products onto the American market have radical wage and environmental regulation advantages. Another policy that must be instituted is raise the minimum wage to twenty dollars an hr.

     

    Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system. To do this all private insurers must be banned from the healthcare market as their only effect on the health of patients is to take money away from doctors, nurses and hospitals preventing them from doing their jobs and hand that money to wall st. investors.

     

    Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.

     

    Demand four: Free college education.

     

    Demand five: Begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end while at the same bringing the alternative energy economy up to energy demand.

     

    Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now.

     

    Demand seven: One trillion dollars in ecological restoration planting forests, reestablishing wetlands and the natural flow of river systems and decommissioning of all of America's nuclear power plants.

     

    Demand eight: Racial and gender equal rights amendment.

     

    Demand nine: Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.

     

    Demand ten: Bring American elections up to international standards of a paper ballot precinct counted and recounted in front of an independent and party observers system.

     

    Demand eleven: Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. Debt forgiveness of sovereign debt, commercial loans, home mortgages, home equity loans, credit card debt, student loans and personal loans now! All debt must be stricken from the "Books." World Bank Loans to all Nations, Bank to Bank Debt and all Bonds and Margin Call Debt in the stock market including all Derivatives or Credit Default Swaps, all 65 trillion dollars of them must also be stricken from the "Books." And I don't mean debt that is in default, I mean all debt on the entire planet period.

     

    Demand twelve: Outlaw all credit reporting agencies.

     

    Demand thirteen: Allow all workers to sign a ballot at any time during a union organizing campaign or at any time that represents their yeah or nay to having a union represent them in collective bargaining or to form a union.

     

    These demands will create so many jobs it will be completely impossible to fill them without an open borders policy.

     

     

     

     

    cmon, that might as well be the manifesto of the USA communist revolution.

     

    americans used to protest to keep government out of their lives. now they protest to use force against other americans to impose their will on them. they demand more from government, not to be left alone.

     

    if the people who claim this is a noble movement and is the beginning of the 'revolution...'

    everyone should be agreed on negatives... such as ending the war, stopping the bail outs, stopping assassination of US citizens, dismantling the FED. all the other stuff about massive class warfare, redistribution of wealth, having the government pay off your student loans that you were stupid enough to take on in the first place... keep all that to yourself.

     

    the protesters need to stop being like these protesters:

     

    and start being like this protester:

     

     

     

    until you realize what the problem is... 'occupying' isnt going to fix anything.

    its sort of like if someone on the right is against welfare, they dont go occupy and protest at welfare offices, they protest against the government for stealing their money to give away in their name.

    look to the source, strike the root.

  10. anyone ever go through huge plateaus of not progressing in max weight? be it for chest (like regular bench presses) or squats, arm stuff, or whatever really. i notice results in pretty much all weight lifting exercises i do for each area, but the one thing that i really haven't brought my max weight up in way too long is regular flat bench pressing. the shits wack and discouraging

     

    bench is the slowest progressing exercise of the big lifts for sure.

     

    where are you failing? bottom, top, middle? im weakest off the chest, and cambered bar presses have really helped me. floor presses and board presses also fix sticking points. this is assuming you arent over training, are going all out, etc.

  11. gold is irrational, what is its right price?

     

    I remember when Gold Oz was at USD 900 and people were saying that it would never go over USD 1000.. and at every USD 100 step people are saying the same thing.. it's too high and it will soon drop but the truth is that nobody can predict what will happen, and for the time being the price continues to go up.. there are other "smart" people waiting for the price to drop to enter but again what is the right price? when to enter? it is better to buy small from time to time.

     

    And tell me from your opinion what could lead to a gold price drop in the close to medium term, do you see any positive sign`?

     

    only way gold is dropping in significant terms is if the govt stops spending money, stops printing money and gets its house in order.

     

    in another words, this is not going to happen

  12. Yes by my example was real world, I have seen it through speaking to thousands of customers and seeing their financial records that barely any of them gave money to charity.

     

    Even the poor pay taxes on their wages, those poor would not be handing over much needed money to help others unless it is done through taxes, some might but they are more likely to be the exception not the rule.

     

    for what its worth, the 'poor' do not pay taxes on their wages. at least not in the US. approximately 50% of americans do not even pay income taxes. sure, the 'poor' have taxes with held from their pay, but they end up getting this back in a refund. if they do end up on net paying taxes, its insignificant. especially in terms of percentage of tax revenue. unless you make approximately 70K or more, you pay hardly any taxes in terms of total share of income tax revenue. the top 50% of wage earners pay 96% of taxes and the top 1% pay 1/3 of total income tax revenue.

     

    now, the poor DO pay sales tax, cigarette tax, alcohol tax, property taxes if they own property, fuel tax, etc etc etc.

     

    but this aside, the troubling part of your post is that you think the poor should be paying to pay another poor persons way. this just seems silly on its face. a poor person does not have the discretionary income that a more well off person does. not to mention, if in the UK if the poor actually do pay taxes to help other people, you are actually damaging the poor person having his money taken because he is already struggling.

     

    have you ever been to a church? the poor may throw a few bucks in the collection plate. the well to do, give 10% or more of their income to the church. some church's are small and pay their operating costs and use the rest for charity purposes or to help the people directly in the congregation. others may pay their preacher WAY to much, but i digress. now, suppose this well to do person who pays 10% of their income to the church was having his income taxed @ this rate to fund a church. would he be just as likely to pay the 10% tax as well as give another 10% to the same church? so lets suppose this person is having his money already taken by the government to help the poor, he tends to then be less likely to give to other charities as this money has already been taken for the purpose.

  13. hahaha.

    ah yes, the bill of rights only applies to certain issues the left likes, the constitution does not matter because the government can do what it wants, the declaration of independence actually was not a declaration of secession, but a declaration of the founding generations convictions for big government.

     

    the cilone version of history.

     

    want to annoy a liberal? cite the bill of rights, talk about govt being confined by the constitution, talk about the principle of non aggression, handle your own business, support yourself and take care of your family. these are extreme positions that are not proper material for modern thought... the people like cilone are the only ones who can define the conversation. saying that theft is wrong is extreme. but you know what isnt extreme? a total debt of twice the worlds gdp. thats not extreme. whats 'extreme' is someone like myself saying that its going to be a tad bit hard to pay that off. mainsteam is arguing about whether the top total income confiscated by government on its citizens should be 41.3 or 43%. which way should they be looted? discuss. that is the main stream. extreme is saying taxation should only cover those articles laid out by the federal and state constitutions you reside in. extreme.

     

    thomas jefferson was an extremist. he actually said people SHOULD rebel every 20 years. patrick henry? extremist! liberty or death! he was such a terrorist.

  14. your viewpoint is quite troubling since nearly everything that has come out of my mouth comprise the same principles and rhetoric that founded this country. have you read the declaration of independence lately? its very EXTREME.

     

    but just to show my moderate mindset, im quite willing to allow you to run your community/county/state how you want, why dont you just let me/us run ours how we want?

    i'd even be willing to have an actual debate about the merits of your policies. tell you what, once you eliminate poverty, illiteracy, and whatever problems you can conceive of in washington DC, we can THEN talk about moving to other parts of the country.

     

    i guess i'll be waiting a LONG time before we can have a serious conversation about your policies.

     

    and while you are reciting maddow and olbermann, i'll admit i am a fan of ron paul. but it must be noted i am more radical than he is.
