The best part of all of this....watching psul morph into George Boardman.....shaking his bony little fist while furiously defending establishment DC and the status quo.

Wonder what the other Green Libertarians™ (both of them) think?

Any of you guys catch psul in polyester Sans-a-Belt trousers, white patent leather shoes and a big ol white leather belt I expect photos!

Paul Emery

That's not the question at hand scenes. I asked Scott to check the economic stats Trump inherited from Obama with the stats when he left office. I provided him a link with clear information on the matter. That was a response to his applauding Trumps economy which factually does not add up, so to speak.

George Rebane

re PaulE 835am - Statistics are never free of bias and politics. Here's another recounting of Biden's performance from Karl Rove answering Biden's long 1jun22 WSJ article on his 'plan' to end inflation.

Scott O

Paul - "a response to his applauding Trumps economy"
The "Trump economy" was booming. America was once again energy independent which we had not been in decades. Lowest unemployment ever for black Americans.
The stats all showed Trump did what Obama said was impossible.
And we all know what happened.
All across the country, governors and mayors shut down whatever economy was theirs to control.
And it was no longer the Trump economy - it was the covid economy.
Paul knows all of this full well, but continues his stupid, childish game of trying to pin it on Trump.
The fact that the conservative states did far better than the Dem states is lost to Paul's hate-filled head. Those Dem states dragged the rest of the nation's economy into the gutter. All the Dems can think of is flooding the country with printed paper, saddling businesses with inane regulations and deliberately running up the cost of energy. It is going to be a painful slide downhill and we have no dot-com boom to save us this time.

Paul Emery

Thanks for agreeing on the numbers Scott. What you have now diverted to is the reason for the Trump slump and that's covid according to you. Biden certainly inherited the covid situation and you can add the Ukraine as well. Also you have price gouging on the part of the petro mobsters. the Dems have introduced a bill to deal with that but it has been blocked bu the Repubs. Figures.



Punch 1011a

"What you have now diverted to is the reason for the Trump slump and that's covid according to you."

No, punch. The reason for the "Trump slump" was the Democrat hysterics calling for shutting down everything. The Trump economy was chugging along nicely and if that continued, Trump would have won in'20 walking away.

Scott O

Paul - "and that's covid according to you."
Yeah - just me, Paul. No one else in the whole country thinks the economy tanked when a vast swath of the workforce hid in their house for months at a time.
Trump had no control over that, Paul.
Biden said he was going to end covid with his 'plan' and Trump gave him the vaxx the Dems claimed would fix everything. And more people died under Biden with a vaccine available.
"Price gouging" by the petroleum industry??!!
Funny how that just started when Biden came into office. Why didn't they do all of this a long time ago? There is no price gouging, Paul - it's a con by the Dems to deflect from what the Dems said they were going to do. They openly said they wanted high fuel prices and they set about making sure it would happen.
Have you actually read the bill?
"The legislation would give President Joe Biden the power to make it illegal for gasoline to be sold at “unconscionably excessive” prices, and would let the Federal Trade Commission seek penalties if evidence pointed to an unfair uptick in gas prices."
That language is absurdly vague. And issuing fines just because someone claims to have some evidence that "points to" a raise in price? Pass this crap and you'll end up with NO fuel. Do we want that again? There's a reason Carter was considered one of the worst POTUS's ever.


Psul: "That's not the question at hand scenes. "

'Question at hand'. lol.

The 'question at hand' is whatever a responder wants it to be.

I'm afraid that you are not the boss of us.


fish: "shaking his bony little fist while furiously defending establishment DC and the status quo. "

Wow, ain't that the truth. I guess that revolutionary stuff only felt right until the establishment started organizing Drag Queen Story Hour. There's something about those frilly (and optional) undies on hairy legs.

Truth is that everything is going to shit, and if Orange Man is your only defense, you use it.

Paul Emery


Well I say everything is going to shit if the Orange Man is your best hope. He's great for the Dems though-biggest political loser in modern history.

Don Bessee

Slapped down in the middle of recall -

"On the merits, we conclude the voters and the Legislature created a duty, enforceable in mandamus, that requires prosecutors to plead prior serious or violent felony convictions to ensure the alternative sentencing scheme created by the three strikes law applies to repeat offenders," the ruling said. "The district attorney overstates his authority. He is an elected official who must comply with the law, not a sovereign with absolute, unreviewable discretion.




Psul: "Well I say everything is going to shit if the Orange Man is your best hope."

If Orange Man were my best hope, I'd mention him over and over and over.

Trump had the value of a hand grenade thrown into The Swamp. As it turns out, his real value was not so much to steer the ship of state, the War Party would never allow that, but to highlight the illness abroad in the land. The outlines of The Swamp were briefly visible.

With the status quo back in power (was it ever out?), hope is not a thing I deal in much. 'Optimism is cowardice' said one Mr. Spengler, and I'm afraid he's right.

You'd better be off to shilling for the Establishment old son. They pay by the word.

Ya think?


Police chiefs from New York City, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Chicago, Milwaukee, Orlando and Los Angeles each expressed some concern with how their respective district attorneys or lead prosecutors, as well as their local court systems, have made significant judicial policy changes that have altered how and even whether accused criminals face justice.

Some chiefs feel like their officers bear the brunt of issues with criminals who have been ignored by other areas of society and government until they commit a crime. And even after they commit a crime, some new district attorneys have chosen not to prosecute certain misdemeanors or to eliminate cash bail. Chiefs expressed particular concern over juveniles who commit violent crimes but avoid prosecution as a result of these new policies, saying young people feel emboldened when they commit a crime and successfully get away with it.

Best Daily Quotes in awhile. Not bad.

A shit hole from hell -

The mother of a San Francisco fentanyl user said the city's liberal policies has enabled open-air drug markets and her son's addiction.

"My son, who is addicted to fentanyl and living on the streets of San Francisco, has told me that ... San Francisco is like hell because you can get everything that you want to stay addicted very, very easily and there's no pressure to get well," Jacqui Berlinn told Fox News.

Berlinn's 31-year-old son has been battling addiction and homelessness in different forms for years and has attempted rehabilitation several times. However, San Francisco's progressive policies soften the consequences for drug user and sellers, harming both the city and users alike, according to Berlinn.

At least 129 people died from overdoses in San Francisco between January and April, with the majority being fentanyl-related, according to city government data

Chesa Boudin, San Francisco's progressive district attorney, has been criticized for policies such as eliminating cash bail and gang enhancements. He faces a recall election next week.

Mayor London Breed announced in January that the city leased space in the Tenderloin neighborhood where drug users can receive meals and showers. It was initially called the Tenderloin Linkage Center and was intended to connect addicts to social services.

But only a small fraction of drug users vising the center were referred or connected to substance use treatment, city data shows. The word "linkage" was recently dropped from the center's name.

"My son told me when he first went to the Linkage Center, he couldn't believe that people were using and selling inside," Berlinn said.

"So he's in bondage to this," she continued. "We've tried to get him well, but because San Francisco makes it so hard to get off of these drugs, and they're always right there in your face, even in the Linkage Center, even in the places where you go to get help, it's really, really difficult."




“For the last six years the Left has had a leader, his supposed omnipotence equal to that of Hitler, Mao, Castro, and Stalin, one to whom all attention must be paid.” This is Trump, because the Left “couldn’t find anyone on the bench to send in, so they chose the rival team’s most powerful player and instructed the faithful that it was opposite day.”
-David Mamet


re: Gregory@6:51AM

hah, that's a good quote. You can certainly see it on these pages. It's an overused comparison, but it seems like Trump is primarily an Emmanuel Goldstein character since what is needed is not policies or philosophy to be against, but a person.

re: DonB@8:09PM Police chiefs vs. the (often Soros-appointed) legal chiefs in their cities.

Maybe it's just that police chiefs haven't got with the program. If the Left is going to produce a generation of mentally-ill children, perhaps the answer is a Legion of Social Workers. The cops need to be trained at one of those bad-kid schools where the inmates are allowed to hit the staff but not the reverse. The other angle is the use of crime as a form of reparation payment, keep all that you can steal, urban drug flow as a form of alternate economy.

Been thinkin' about what to do (if anything) about the Parkland/Uvalde/Buffalo shooters. Eighteen year olds who hadn't had the time to establish a pattern that could flag them as a bad bet under the Constitution to have a gun.

What about, you can't buy an ugly (black rifle) or concealable gun until you're a high school graduate or admitted to college or accepted into the armed forces, or until your 21st b'day?

Paul Emery


That's a tiny step n the right direction.


Gregory: "What about, you can't buy an ugly (black rifle) or concealable gun until you're a high school graduate or admitted to college or accepted into the armed forces, or until your 21st b'day?"

Sounds like a good rule for voting or drinking. Probably best just to make it for all firearms since they're largely equivalent. Consider it the price of full citizenship.

Psul: "That's a tiny step n the right direction."

lol. Those ratchets are funny things. They only turn one direction.

How about we go for Gregory's rule, but you can buy a suppressor over the counter (like any European can)?


Punchy 1109a

It's as big a step as I'll make, and if schools and police were doing their jobs better, it probably wouldn't be an issue.

The Parkland shooter was 'visited' by the police something like 70 times and didn't get busted for a felony because they were following the advice of Obama's Secy of Education to break the pipeline to prison.

Either go to school seriously or go into the armed forces. Otherwise, be thankful you can get a bolt or lever action centerfire rifle to shoot food with.


Gregory: "It's as big a step as I'll make, and if schools and police were doing their jobs better, it probably wouldn't be an issue."

David Cole gives a handy list on Taki's Magazine for such things. High efficiency erupts by simply using the reason number.

"(1) Guns: The favored “why” among leftists. If only we had stricter, European-style gun laws, these things wouldn’t keep happening!

(2) Broken families: With so much divorce and single parenthood, what else do you expect but mass shootings?

(3) Untreated mental illness: If only we could lock up the loons, we’d be safe.

(4) Overtreated mental illness: Thanks to Big Pharma, parents warp their kids’ minds with unnecessary meds.

(5) Media: Violent vidja games! Violent movies! 4Chan! And the evening news, which glorifies shooters and creates copycats.

(6) Fail male: “Society” is failing our boys. Our villages no longer raise up men!

(7) Failed safeguards: Schools unguarded, tips unheeded."



Regarding lever action rifles... they be weapons of war in exactly the same way as an M16, Springfield '06 or a Pennsylvania/Kentucky longrifle is: they've killed people in battles between opposing armies. Same crap, different millennium.

And no one now is showing up for service with an AR-15 or an AR-10.

Obviously the various countries can differ.


It's a no-brainer as gun ranges and housing get closer.


Punchy don't care if shooters go deaf which is what suppressors help eliminate.

Too many folk (including Punch?) think "silencers" actually make gunshots all but silent.


"Too many folk (including Punch?) think "silencers" actually make gunshots all but silent. "

I think it's the movies mostly. Pewpewpewpewpewpew.

It's odd that the Great State of California you end up with:

"33410 Any person, firm, or corporation who within this state possesses a silencer is guilty of a felony and upon conviction thereof shall be punished by imprisonment pursuant to subdivision (h) of Section 1170 or by a fine not to exceed ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or by both that fine and imprisonment."

Maybe it's just that 'gotta do sumthin' about it' role that government likes to play when it laminates another and another and another rule for everyone.

Guns will be abolished in California simply from the sheer exhaustion of everyone trying to figure out what's legal about what they are doing.

Just wait until more-intelligent cars keep a better eye on you. There's lots of potential law crafting there.

Mad Dogs (and Englishmen) was a great place, down to the dartboard and "Englishmen drink warm beer because they own Lucas refrigerators" and "Every part falling off this automobile is of the finest British manufacture" notices.


"do you also support their other laws concerning the possession and ownership of hand guns and and semi automatic rifles such as AR-15's? "

No, although the laws differ by country. There's also less free speech rights there. Is that a good thing?

If Swedes don't care if you buy a suppressor, why should California? At least in the freer parts of the US, a $200 tag and a bit of time allows you to buy one.

Not that you can't roll yer own.

And re Rich Howell in the Union. He is a prolific left wing party parrot.
Perhaps someone could ask him why when Trump was POTUS and the economy was booming and gas was far cheaper - "They have continued to spend, and drive, regardless of price."
Those terrible awful price gouging oil barons.
That failed to gouge when Trump was POTUS but waited until a Dem was in office just so they could cause problems.
Perhaps that Psul chap could explain.
