Re: Gun Ownership vs Homicide rate - World

Re: The growing threat from White Supremacists

And as for real threats from white supremacists, every time I go to Walmart I am reminded that some stupid, homicidal, white supremacist drove all the way from from Allen to El Paso so he could kill people who look like my son. So yeah, I keep an eye out for threats from white supremacists, among o...

Re: The growing threat from White Supremacists

This really has no bearing on anything, but when the news story broke that Grenita Lathan would leave the Houston Independent School District to take the superintendent position in Springfield, Missouri, they displayed some demographic information comparing Texas's largest school district to Spring...

Re: A Different Type of Secession Is Already Happening in the USA

IMHO, the author's use of the the term "secession" is counter-productive. He is really talking about "voting with the feet", which Americans have been doing forever. The suburban settlement pattern in particular is 70 years in the making. And some poll data ( https://www.realcle...

Re: The .45 is Unquestionably Superior to the 9mm

A German 88mm is also superior to a .45 for some things, not including portability and concealability.

Re: Its Time to Texit.

PTR, You put a great deal of thought and care into articulating your viewpoint. I agree with some of your points, but not all. Most importantly, while you make a good argument for Texit, I firmly believe that establishing Texas as an independent country is much more complex than I think people appr...

Yall ready yet? I've been binging on Hulu since Thanksgiving, watching Homeland, the original Showtime series about clandestine spy stuff. There are a couple of seasons focusing on the attempts by Russia to unravel U.S. society, U.S. elections, etc. by way of social media disinformation and muckrak...

The size of the present economy is partly the result of the stability of the current political/legal system, not to mention the relative stability of the U.S. currency and bond markets. You can't assume t...
