    Chris I gotta ask…in the sidebar ads obviously Sam is the one with the barcode on her arm, but who has the barcode on her hip?

      Jan-see the long hair? 🙂

        Ya know, I never noticed the long hair 🙂
        I just knew it was Jan from that long ago fund raiser.

        Cool, now I know which one to cover with my ad when I use it here. 🙂

    I didn’t manage to finish it, but I did not see anything in that book other than destruction.
    Did Alinsky ever suggest a system, a society that he approved of?
    In the part I did finish, it seemed to me that if he wasn’t so busy hating this country he might just have looked back and seen that Small Government Conservatism was what he wanted.

    • the point was destruction. in other books he talks about setting up a “shadow” government, (czars, regulators, ect) that steps in and gives people order and security in exchange for their freedom when the existing government falls. then in “rules for radicals” he talks about how to make that government fall.

      I do a lot of opposition research. both as a means to defeat them, and to “blend in” when I work for the Sons of Stark (as in “live free or die” general stark) infiltrating and sabotaging these organizations. it’s a fun hobby.

      “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” sun tzu

      • eon

        The left knows everything that needs to be known about how to destroy a society, a culture, a civilization- but nothing about how to build one on the ruins.

        They dream of standing limned against the ruins, silhouetted against the rising sun, as they pose. Before they start to create Heaven on Earth.

        But they never get farther than the ruins. And to cover their incompetence, they kill. And keep killing.

        It’s no coincidence that they are mystics. Their entire philosophy is based on “I believe, therefore it is so”. The corollary to which is “so let it be written; so let it be done”. They dream of being Pharaohs, or Mandarins, or Platonic philosopher-kings. Never of being leaders chosen by the people on the basis of actual achievement. Rather, they believe they are chosen by “history”, because the idea of a God more powerful than themselves is anathema to them.

        “Obey me or die” is their mantra. No matter how much they sugarcoat it, they believe in Mao’s dictum that all power grows from the barrel of a gun, which is why they want there to be no guns except those in the hands of their obedient minions. (Exactly how long those minions might remain obedient to them is something they simply don’t consider.)

        Leftism, progressivism, call it what you will. It is simply another gnosticist mystery cult, in which the Elect believe they have wisdom vouchsafed to no one else, and are therefore the only ones fit to rule and the only ones who should reap the benefits of the Utopia they dream of creating on others’ backs- and corpses.

        Keep this in mind when attempting to comprehend them.

        Well they’ve got the destruction thing down, and intentionally or not they’re pretty good at making the government fail.

        But I’m interested in that shadow-gov thing…I’m thinking Trump/Cruz must be too with different motives and methods of course; I hope they’re busily building a framework and planbook to step in, pick up the pieces, and put this old Republic back together again.

        • NotYetInACamp

          I know that Trump has gathered a good number rather incredible and competent advisers of great knowledge and insight. Some have held very responsible positions in government and business and elsewhere. The decision making would change greatly from previous administrations such as where Weinberg stopped Reagan and France’s response to the Marine’s barracks bombing, as well as the overthrow of Ayatollah Khomeini when it would have been easy. But it all is hearsay.
          I am hoping that he is considering people to plug into important positions and the massive numbers that must be stripped of positions.
          I would like a position in a quiet little supposedly backwater country where I know I would do great good for the USA and that small nation, home of my ancestral tribe. They are potentially more important than most people know.
          I reached out several ways. No response yet. i’ll try later
          OK. So maybe crushing Ayers in public argument isn’t that great. But I also did that Wong thing against the invaders of all stripes. Time will tell. There is no way that I would fit into government under someone else. Most government people usually oppress and destroy those who tell what they believe is the truth. Business and the nation thrived on it.
          I did guide my little family company great again. i want to help make this country great again, as I know almost all of you who read this want to help do also.
          The goals are still Nomination. Election. Then governing well.
          Mustering the forces should be going on all along the way.
          This is speculation from things that I have heard.

    Woo Woo – I’m with Sam.

      Need another “stoopidest politician” quote from you. Six more to go =D.

      • Polly Cy

        Since you asked so nicely – here’s one of my favorites:

        #2. “Gentlemen don’t read each other’s mail.” Secretary of State (Laater Secretary of War under Roosevelt) Henry Stimson, in 1929, when closing down DOS’s codebreaking unit. The Black Chamber had routinely and successfully been intercepting and deciphering Japanese coded diplomatic traffic. Ten years later, he admitted he might have made a small error in judgment.

    What brand of chainsaw is Zed using?

    i was going to say something relating to the “Evil Dead – Ash” but with the chainsaw, i now need to go and watch those all over again. Great movies!
    Hold it in the other hand Zed.

  • B Woodman

    Ahhh. . . but the one good thing about this evil tome, is that good men can also use it against those same enemies.
    I’m reminded of a line (or paraphrase) from Issac Asimov’s “Foundation”, “It’s a poor blaster that won’t shoot both ways”.

    • B Woodman

      I was interrupted.
      I was also going to add, Libtards HATE it when you use their own tactics against them. Especially “Rules For Radicals” RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon” and RULE 12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

      The more the Libtards gain power and attempt to rule over everything, the more they set themselves up to be the target of their own “Rules For Radicals”. In other words, the “Rules” don’t change, but the “Radicals” do, depending on who’s on top of the power struggle heap at the moment.

      Ummmm. . . .Sam. . . Zed. . . who’s on top. . ..

  • Liberals don’t so much as read as they Fetishize books over what they’re TOLD they contain. (Like their hate-fetish for Heinlein, they’ve never read him, but they’re told what’s in his books, by other libs who likewise have never read him.). But then, Everything libs know is superficial. The depths and the truth are too complex for them.

    • eon

      Dallas McCord “Mack” Reynolds was a dedicated socialist, but was one of John W,. Campbell’s favorite contributors to Astounding/Analog in the Sixties. Mainly because everything he wrote pointed out the fallacies in socialism, usually inadvertently.

      I’ve often wondered if Reynolds realized it.

    • B Woodman

      I HAVE read Heinlein, about 99+% of his stuff (I know there’s at least ONE book or story I haven’t found yet). He covers the spectrum of gooberment, from monarchy (Glory Road), to socialism (Starship Troopers), to anarchy (The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress). Love it all, some of the best written SciFi, ever. And, if you’re paying attention, or even if you’re NOT paying attention, you just might learn something.

      • Christopher Cole

        My favorite Heinlein saying:

        Be wary of strong drink, for it may make you shoot at tax collectors – AND MISS

    • H_B

      Wait, wait, WHAT?

      There is a school of thought that hates Heinlein? This is a thing? I’ve never heard of this. I’ve only ever encountered people who’ve never heard of him at all or SF fans who view him as one of the old luminaries to draw from.

      • B Woodman

        Yes. Anyone that hates Heinlein, keelhaul the bastards.

  • van der Lubbe

    Groovy!

  • B Woodman

    Saul Alinsky vs Ayn Rand.
    Now THERE’S a grudge match I’d pay plenty to see.

    • Considering they have both been at kaput for years, nothing to see. Literally, nothing to see except for a few bones and a little dust! You can see that under your couch if you have a dog. By the way, did you hear about the little boy who told his mother there was dead man under her bed? She asked him how he came up with that. He told her their preacher told them at grandpa’s funeral. “ashes to ashes and dust to dust.” And there was enough dust under her bed to have been a man!

  • For those who are into Heinlein, Isaac Asimpv was the same age and server in the same unit at the Philadelphia Navy Yard during WWII. Robert was an officer, but Issac was enlisted (but according to him, somewhat smarter. The whole group would become leaders in the Sci Fi genre. Because Robert was in the Navy and was rising rapidly, they all predicted Robert would end up an Admiral, until he contracted TB, a career killer in the confines of a wartime ship. I know, my father got TB at about the same time. Isaac wrote his Autobiography. I don’t remember the exact title, but it is something like “In Memories Yet (Still?) Green. Look it up, Chris. Put it on your sidebar. Judging from your readers, a lot will be sold!

    Please forgive typos and nonsense. First day out of hospital for new trigger finger and hand surgery. I will have to shoot left handed for the rest of the year. Don’t start anything without me!

    • B Woodman

      When I was growing up, Heinlein, Asimov, and Clarke were the Holy Trinity of SciFi authors.

      • JTC

        Visionaries all, but nothing holy about that trinity when they were alive. Now? Who knows? I speculated about that when I eulogized Arthur back in ’08:

        2008: A New Odyssey Beyond Even His Imagination

        More than a prolific author of futuristic novels, Arthur C. Clarke was in truth a visionary, or a seer of things to come, and in fact was the inspiration for things that might not have been, were it not for his insight and imagination.

        But even he was unable to imagine or comprehend the ultimate journey beyond the stars when his life on earth was done…may God accept him into Heaven and keep his soul and brilliant mind for the rest of us to meet and greet when our own time comes.

    • markm

      Sorry, but your chronology is wrong. Heinlein was 13 years older than Asimov. Heinlein joined the Navy in the 20’s and was discharged in 1934, years before WWII and years before Asimov was draft age. When the TB didn’t kill him as expected, he needed a job that didn’t require much physical exertion. First he tried local politics, and got a rude education in dirty tricks. Then he started writing.

  • Otto Didact

    Been watching “Ash vs the Evil Dead”, Mr Muir?

    • “Ash vs the Evil Dead” is a VERY good tie in, for some silly reason. I can see the fit, somehow.

  • D. Wright

    This reminds me of the covers of most of the Doc Savage books I read as a kid. No matter what sort of evil Doc was combating, one thing was pretty much guaranteed : his shirt would be torn to shreds, I always dreamed that one day I would have muscles like his. Oh well.

  • woodNfish

    Hey Chris – they aren’t liberals, they are leftists. The root word of liberal is liberty. You and I both know they do not believe in liberty. Leftists are also not progressive, they are regressive. When you call them by the labels they have given themselves you play into their PC propaganda – hide the truth behind words that are the opposite of what leftists really are. Stop being PC, stop helping them spread their propaganda, and call them what they are; regressive leftists.

    • H_B

      I think Trump’s open defiance of PC speech norms is actually his most significant contribution to the current campaign. His defense of the border gets the most commentary, but the way he’s doing it has had the most impact. After seeing that he can stand up to it, Cruz has started to do it too in recent days.

      • JTC

        It bugged me some that Cruz ragged on Trump putting out the “No Muzzies Allowed” sign. It’s an untenable policy, but ballsy as hell, and no backtracking has been the Don’s strongest suit, so instead he said the ban would be temporary. Perfect…stick to your guns and polish as needed.

        But Ted f’d up when he dissed it altogether; he better be careful if he wants to stay on the bottom of my ticket.

        • H_B

          Wait, when did Cruz do that? Did you mean Ryan? Right after the recent Paris attack, Cruz put a bill on the Senate floor for a three year “pause” in accepting refugees from dangerously-unstable (hint-hint) areas. That I’ve heard, Cruz hasn’t said anything about Trump today.

          (Though he has to be thinking “oh sure, when he says it, everyone pays attention…”_

            Not an attack at all, just the first time I’ve seen public disagreement on a major policy announcement. And Cruz’s people are girding for the attack that they believe will eventually come from Donald when Cruz starts crowding him in the polls. Personally I think they’re both too smart to take the bait and honestly believe they have discussed our dream-team ticket and maybe even my long-range hope that there will be a one-term Trump/Cruz followed by eight years of Cruz in the big chair. He just has to keep his mouth shut and continue to turn attempts to create conflict between them into an attack on media, and now more especially on the Rinos…or maybe we should now call them Ryanos…there was a big establishment GOP pow wow today where it was apparently decided that it’s time to take Trump down; I can’t wait to see it backfire.

    • B Woodman

      I prefer “Libtards” (Liberal Retards) or “Libturds” to Regressive Leftists.
      Short, sweet, easy to remember, easy to say, more in-your-face, and more likely to piss them off (a good thing).
      Regressive Leftists is more accurately descriptive, but. . . .

        How about lefturds? It is more accurate.

    Speaking of leftists and other users of irrational thought:

    “ … We all say that we have to identify the threat.

    Erdogan of turkey has said that “Islam is Islam. There are no modifiers. Democracy is the train we ride to our ultimate objective.” He couldn’t have said it any plainer. Until you recognize that Islam is a political movement masquerading as a religion, you are never going to come to grips with it.
    And as far as the strategy ……
    The Obama administration has a strategy. It is very simple. And any thinking American should be able to grasp it. It’s Anti-American. Anti Western. It is pro Islamic. It is pro Iranian. And Pro Muslim brotherhood. And with that I will yield the mike. “

    • Delilah T

      Erdogan buys crude oil from ISIS/Daesh. There are satellite photos of oil tanker trucks lined up at the Syrian-Turkish border. ISIS oil is cheaper than Russian or Saudi oil.
      Now you know why the Saudis have removed the oil production ceiling for OPEC crude.
      Prices are expected to drop back to $25 to $35/barrel – prices from the 1960s.
      Do you see why I’m so wigged out that the marone in the White House thinks more ethanol should be added to gas for your car?

      • H_B

        Erdogan is indeed bat-guano insane, for many reasons (his statement that Christopher Columbus saw a Mosque on Hispaniola and North America is thus moslem territory may be my favorite). Thing is, if Russia and Turkey got into it, with Russia’s current condition…I think Turkey could take them.

        • Delilah T

          I’m not so sure. I think Vlad Putin is more driven and smarter by a country mile than Erdogan. Not such a narrow focus.
          Erdogan sucks up to his potential future masters.
          Putin sucks up only to himself, and says “I am Russian, first. Everything else is just details.”

          • H_B

            Erdogan sees himself putting together a “Greater Turkish Empire” stretching from the Bosphorus to Western China, composing all the Azeri, Uzbek, Khazak, etc Turkish sub-ethnicities.

            And the Russian armed forces really are in terrible shape and have trouble deploying anywhere. They sent 4,000 troops and ~40 jets to Syria because that’s all they could manage. And everything stopped in Ukraine at the same time because they had to withdraw from there to move to the Middle East. They’re using unguided WWII-designed bombs dropped from Backfire bombers in Syria because that’s what they can afford for munitions.

            Turkey has an army of 500k men, ~250 F-16s/F-4s, and a group of Frigates and Missile boats that could positively erase the Russian Black Sea fleet if they felt like it.

            Seriously, I think Turkey could take them right now.

    Public Law 414
    Islam, by law, is prohibited from US immigration The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and nationality for the United States. That act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of Aliens to the US and remains in effect today. Among the many issues it covers, one in particular, found in Chapter 2 Section 212, is the prohibition of entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by “force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.” This, by its very definition, rules out Islamic immigration to the United States, but this law is being ignored by the White House.Islamic immigration to the US would be prohibited under this law because the Koran, Sharia Law and the Hadith all require complete submission to Islam, which is antithetical to the US government, the Constitution, and to the Republic. All Muslims who attest that the Koran is their life’s guiding principal subscribe to submission to Islam and its form of government. Now the political correct crowd would say that Islamists cannot be prohibited from entering the US because Islam is a religion. Whether it is a religion is immaterial because the law states that Aliens who are affiliated with any “organization” that advocates the overthrow of our government are prohibited
