Clearly it was a comment on democracy.

We are constantly told what a wonderful and perfect ideal democracy is...but living in a country where a large % of the 'citizens' simply hate white people...how could a white person even like the idea of democracy?

I don't understand how you don't see that crystal clear interpretation. 

Well no...I do. Because you have been conditioned to regard any racial talk from a white person (and only a white person) as intrinsically genocidal.
Personally, I like a Republican Democracy.  I don't need people to like me, to not hate me - heck, I don't even care if they respect me.  For the most part, I just want to be left alone; and I want to have as much Freedom as is possible and have a say in choosing local and national political leaders.  So, I am good with the form of government engineered by our Founding Fathers.

I certainly don't need nor want one person to choose my leaders for me.  As for Jews, they make up a tiny fraction of the population of the United States, so they can't be this large % of citizens that hate white people.  Blacks - yeah, a significant portion of Blacks do hate Whites.  I've lived with this, as I am sure you have.  We are biologically and culturally very different, and I see it as only natural for portions of one race to dislike portions of the other - both ways. 

I don't think Hispanics harbor as much hate for Whites as a number of Blacks do.

As for  Whites hating other Whites  - There may be a tiny fraction of ultra left idiots who buy into the Black Pride things, but I really don't think there are that many of them.  They just tend to be loud and in the media.

As for regarding any racial talk from a white person as intrinsically genocidal - that's nonsense. I think you are confusing me with some others. 

Not all Blacks hate Whites either. I try to be fair when I interact with Blacks and have no problem interacting with the ones who are essentially conservative and educated.  That doesn't mean I want to fornicate with their women, or want my children dating or marrying them.  However, it is hard for me to imagine condemning every individual of an entire race based solely on their racial features.  To each his own, but I'm not willing to go there.

Why?

What's in it for me?
Again, no one ever said you had to respect their votes, depending on what you mean by "respect".  As to what you intend to do - I really don't know that, do I. 

Look, you chose to ask some open ended, poorly phrased questions.  Maybe you were drunk.  Maybe you don't have a very good command of the English language.  Or, maybe you were just irrationally venting.  I would say that you got a better response from me than what you asked for.

This was not at all obvious by in the 3 questions you asked which made up your original topic.  That is all I was responding to when I attempted to answer your questions. 

If you don't like my attempt at answering your 3 questions, then don't ask 3 questions which will elicit responses you do not care to read.

"Respect the votes"  what does that mean?  You can answer it if you want, but as it stands, it really means nothing or anything in the context of the 3 questions you asked. 

So, in attempting to answer this, I can only make presumptions about what you wrote.  If you mean you want to blog and write about how you do not respect the votes of those who hate you, you are free to do so.  Ideologically, you are not required to respect their votes and you are pretty much free to say and write whatever you want about that.

If you are asking why you can't go and summarily execute those people who hate you and thus consistently vote against you, actually you can.  You can go and execute these people to the best of your ability, until you get caught, like Dylann Roof.  Then, they will either kill you or take nearly all of your freedoms away for life.  In this scenario, what's in it for you is your life and far more freedom during your lifetime than you would otherwise have.

I was just going to say something similar, you just said it better.  You better not be shooting at people more than 25 feet away from you for a lot of reasons in most urban and suburban environments.  If I spot someone running quickly toward me in a sketchy situation, I might deploy my firearm before they get within 25 feet of me, but not shoot.   First, hitting a moving target under pressure at 25' is difficult.  Very easy to miss, and if you miss, where is that bullet going to land?  Second, ask yourself if a Jury will find that someone 50 feet away from you (who is not shooting at you) caused you to believe you were in imminent danger.  If I were on that jury, might have a hard time convincing me.

Most gun folks realize that killing another person is a BAD thing.  Something none of us ever wants to have to do. In questionable circumstances, it would way heavily on your soul as well as cost you butt-loads of money in defense costs....and that's if the shooting is determined to be justified.

I've heard the argument that both guns are equally lethal but I'm skeptical.
I think I recall answering a question like this.  In close quarters (home, for instance), I'd rather have a full-capacity semi-auto pistol.  If you are talking about defending open land, then the AR would suffice.  Personally, I'd opt for a good 308 bullpup over an AR, but that's just me.  It's just easier for me to grab my pistol and check out the house, room by room, if something goes bump in the night. It would take more time for me to get an AR into my hands and operational.

Vegas » 26 Jun 2022, 12:53 pm » wrote: In conclusion: Two questions: 

1. What if we are AI bots for a species that we are unaware of?
2. would AI bots be unaware of us?

Prediction
1. Veghead will say "you are a **** moron."
I will attempt to answer these questions by making a couple of assumptions:

First Assumption
What we call "God" could be such a species you describe.  If we take the existence of God as true, then God told us he gave mankind "free will".  We are pretty much left to our own actions and deeds which seemingly have no unified or unitary purpose.  So, even if we are machines created by the All Might, or even another race of non-humans, then we do not meet the definition of a AI Bots. There is no seeming intention to make us perform or do things for the betterment of another species.

Second Assumption
Leaving the "God" question out of it.  Let's try to go down the rabbit hole that another species created us. I would refute such a premise by pointing out a few things:
  • There is no evidence of any near-by non-human race or civilization which could travel to Earth without huge expenditures of time and energy.  Our species is uniquely tailored to every aspect of Earth, down to the cellular and even elemental level, and we are not likely to have evolved or have been created on some other planet.
  • Even assuming that some species did create us, we seem to have "free will" and are not performing any type of robotic functions to benefit any other race. So, to what end are we AI Bots performing functions for another species?  There is no evidence of this at all.
  • Who created our creators?  At some point, there would have to be a species that was not created by any other species (taking God out of the equation for a moment).  So, in examining this we must conclude that our creators evolved naturally (again, taking the Divine out of the discussion), but we did not.  This is a paradox, as there are no signs that we were created by another species, and any other creator-species (or their creators, on and on) at some point would have had to spring forth and develop on its own.  So, if this can happen to others, why could it not have happened to Humans?
Therefore, based on logic because 1) there is no evidence that Humans were created as Bots to perform some useful function for another species; 2) We appear to have free will to chart our own destinies within the confines of our own existence; and 3) at some point the creators could not have been created by others, I surmise that we were not created bots by and for an alien species.

Instead, you are right, he went on the the attack as a defensive measure.  You could see the guy shaking - he knew they had him and was just buying time to figure out how he was going to exit this fiasco.

You're 100% right about that.  But, try and tell this to a diehard 1911 fanboy, and you will get a bunch of smack thrown back at you about how it makes it a better gun.  ****!  Backstrap safeties were added at the request of some retarded army general.  1911's weren't originally designed with this.  And, after they give you 10 paragraphs on the benefits of backstrap safeties, just ask them why they were never used in Browning Hi-Powers.

Then, when you get done shoving the stupid, back-strap safeties (which can be removed, and replaced with a stationary insert, by the way) go tell a Glock Fanboy to shove that stupid trigger dingus up his ***!  I HATE GUNS WITH A TRIGGER DINGUS!!!  I'd much prefer DA/SA or a good old fashioned lever safety to that stupid trigger dingus.

Yes, there is someone who makes a lever safety for Glocks.  And, yes, you can remove the dingus. Not worth the trouble or the legal hassles.

Rant over - I need a fist full of blood pressure meds after that!!!!!!!

Yes, Joe Biden did do that. And $107/barrel is ridiculously high compared to what it was under Trump.

The functional examples of socialism I gave had small scale and genetic similarity i.e. homogeneity.  On large scales, with great diversity, socialism can NEVER work.
I totally agree with this and have been saying the same for years.  There is nothing wrong with communism (I like that word better because it more accurately describes communal living on a small scale) in and of itself.  This is the only way the Americas could ever be settled by Europeans when they first arrived.   And, it still works, like in Amish villages, on a small scale.  Homogeneity and everyone internalizing the groups set of rules and morals is key.  Differentiating the group from the "outside world" is also important. Everyone has to generally know one another and WANT to pull their own weight.  Then, it can work quite well. 

However, it was never meant to scale up.  Once you lose the commonality of purpose and familiarity of everyone in the group, it fails. For it to work, everyone must feel connected to everyone in the group.  And, there has to be an agreed method of expelling or punishing those who are disruptive or lazy.

What Xavier fails to understand is that the term "machine gun" really has no meaning outside of the law that attributes a defined meaning to the term.

Take away any legal definition of the term machine gun, and what does the phrase really mean?  A gun that is a machine? As opposed to a gun that is not a machine.  You can see  ( @Xavier_Onassis  not so much), machine gun is a nonsense term just like assault weapon is without it being defined in some law.

I know I did respond.  No, it doesn't install in the trigger assembly.  The lower receiver needs to be drilled, and the part pinned in place.  It acts like a trip - causing the hammer to drop when the bolt carrier closes.  What you described would cause a slam fire at best, but wouldn't really work to make a rifle fire reliable in full auto.  The one exception to this are open bolt guns, which use a lip on the bottom of the bolt face sort of as a timing device, instead of an auto-sear.

Gun culture isn't responsible for murder.  Murderers are responsible for murder. Yes, I have children.  I have taught them and other children how to shoot.  There are, however, children that I refuse to take shooting.  Those are the ones who are irresponsible, angry, mean, disrespectful, and obstinate.

Like you, for example, I would not teach someone like you how to shoot.
