Another great reason to concealed carry wherever you go. In fact-- this is a helluva lot more likely than encountering a shooter...

What happened in the 9 seconds of missing video?
It is an example of uncontrolled screaming not really being beneficial. It did draw the attention of a bystander at least

I don't know what to make of the author Matt Taibbi. Seemed to be the darling of the left while at Rolling Stone then more recently and enemy of the left.
Matt Taibbi from my pov he's one of America's top journalists .. you may not like everything he has to say, but he seems to try his best to get to solid facts, data and analysis .. a rare breed these days, and I am thankful we have people like him.

A solid democracy is dependent on a good discussion to determine policy .. and we simply have too many shills and manipulators in the game now.

I have no idea what he wrote in this book. Could be fair, could be just observations. Did you read it?

I didn't read it .. but honestly, from what I understand each Presidential administration has it's issues and it does not surprise me that any of the recent administrations are disfunction in some way based on all the dysfunctionality I have seen at numerous jobs / work / company I have seen from the inside ...

I'm not impressed. I think he is an opportunist. Probably explains why he's swinging in the wind going from left to right. I would not doubt if he comes out with Insane Clown 2 - the movie if Trump were elected again. JMHO based on some quick checks.

I didnt watch the entire interview, but did see enough.

Notes:
  • hes a straight shooter and as I said before, doesnt care who he pisses off
  • he goes where the story leads him
  • at 17:10 he discusses the THEN big story of Russian Collusion and his answer is pretty darn straight up.
  • Similar at the close, remember, the whole of government had lined up to frame him of Russian Collusion. Tabbi wasn;t endorsing the narrative, he was simply saying we need to find out
  • the woman interviewer is a raging liberal Trump hater

If one is looking for a 100% of the time Trump cheerleader, he aint it. Neither am I.

Uhmmm…liberals gonna liberal.
The beat down on these Democrat fucks should be fun to watch

In fact, the Hawaii Supreme Court essentially declares the entire Constitution null and void in their state, writing: "As the world turns, it makes no sense for society to pledge allegiance to the founding era's culture, realities, laws, and understanding of the Constitution."

I see Hawaii has already made page. What a shame. I love Hawaii but I HATE the liberal ass environment there. Always have. Probably lived there for 8 out of my 21 years in the Corps (well, I was probably there for 3.5 years of that actually-deployed).

As a SSgt. when I reported in for my second tour to 1/3, I had been in the company for about a week. A runner from the Company Office came to me and said that the CO needed to see me ASAP. I was like, WTF? I haven't done anything wrong yet. So I go up to the office, the 1stSgt has this 'oh brother' look on his face and I report to the Skipper. There are two Hawaiian Leo's standing there. Apparently they were there to arrest me for bringing a rifle onto the island illegally. WTF? Before I left Texas (my brothers house in Lubbock) I left all of my guns there because I knew how Hawaii was and how bad TMO in VA was. Good thing I did...I ended up having half of my household items stolen...fukers. Anyways, shit was stupid, the CO of course believed me and they called the MP's and base legal to include TMO. TMO finally admitted it was a mistake. Holy Shit...started my tour off with a bang! But yes, it is that bad over there. That was in 1995ish.

And NO we are not giving it back to 'them'. It is a state, a part of the union and there is one hell of a lot of spilled American blood there....still is....defending that damn island. NO.
