    So Scalzi isn’t becoming irrelevant fast enough for his tastes, so he’s seeking to accelerate his irrelevance? I’m well past 0.08 BAC (thank you, Makers Mark! (I’ve been working nights since 2016. Sue me.)), and still couldn’t think this up.

    Here’s the page for the Mavic Pro. Nothing on there (that I could find, anyway) about how much time it needs for the battery to recharge, or if you can swap out a depleted battery for a fresh one.

    Joining the military could also be put under leaving the state, as there aren’t any basic training programs that each of the services require a recruit to go through as part of joining located in New Mexico (that I know of).

    As far as I know, the Army, Navy and Marine Corps don’t have any sort of MOS programs located in New Mexico.

    Even with the ROTC programs at UNM and NMSU, the services require that graduates take officer basic courses (like MOS training for enlisted personnel) for their selected branch of service. Aside from the Air Force, how many of those programs are located in New Mexico?

    Better yet, move UN headquarters 500 miles to the east of its present location.

    The fact that it would be in the middle of the Atlantic is the UN’s problem.

    The phrase “Redundant Bullshit” is itself redundant when referring to most legislation, especially in the Land of Entrapment.

    Xe (ze?) flew a good ten feet through the air between getting hit by the truck and landing on the road surface.

    Maybe vis (ver?) parents (?) didn’t instill into vim (ver?) the concept of “look both ways before crossing the street” ?

    Install youtube-dl on your laptop or desktop so you can save the clip to your hard drive or an external drive, and watch this over and over again if YouTube takes it down.

Santa Claus on “Benevolent Government” — Ron Paul’s 2017 Christmas Message

Ron Paul
Friday, December 22, 2017 at 7:35am

Government is not Mother Teresa.

It’s not “caring,” or “compassionate,” or “humanitarian.”

It doesn’t “help” the poor . . . . It multiplies them.

It doesn’t “run the economy” . . . . It destroys it.

It doesn’t “spread freedom” . . . It squashes it.

Government is violent force.

Either that force is chained down by a Constitution, or like a fire, it’ll spread and burn down everything in its path.
