Anarcho-Tyranny Update.
Interesting self-defense from Canada. Canada is decidedly unfriendly to armed self-defense compared to most American states. The fact that the defendant went outside ‘looking for trouble’ instead of staying inside his house where he was safe and calling the police may prejudice the case against him in the eyes of the jury. In the absence of any physical evidence or eye-witness testimony he may not be able to prove to the satisfaction of the jury that the car thief acted in a way that would put a reasonable person in fear of his life. In the USA the ‘furtive movement’ defense is a matter of case law. In other words if, given the totality of the circumstances in which the defender finds himself, a suspect makes a movement that looks like he is drawing a gun from concealment, the defender is not required to wait until he actually sees a gun before he shoots in self defense. That may not be so for Canada.
Otherwise in Canada, like in most U.S. states (excluding Texas), you don’t get to use lethal force to prevent the theft of property. The courts feel that since there is no death penalty for stealing. property owners should likewise not be allowed to punish thieves with death. You generally cans use less than lethal force to prevent theft. If the thief resists your efforts to thwart him by threatening you with lethal force, THEN you can use lethal force to protect yourself. A plea of self-defense is an affirmative defense, meaning that you have already admitted that you used force against another person so now it is incumbent upon you to prove to the court that it was necessary and right for you to do so to protect yourself.

Yeah, what will happen to America’s debt? It’s already so high it can never be paid back. America is effectively bankrupt. It cannot pay all the people it has promised to pay; it has way too many ‘unfunded liabilities’. So how can this possibly have a good ending?
A jubilee? In the Holy Bible (Leviticus 25:8-13), a jubilee year is a year of emancipation of all slaves and prisoners and forgiveness of all debts. It was observed every 50 years.
A ‘debt Jubilee’ might be seen as a painless way to forgive all the debts and avoid an inevitable economic collapse. Or it could bring about an economic collapse, as one man’s debt is another man’s asset. After all, economic collapses generally occur when people lose faith in the system try to pull their money out of it to keep from losing it, all at once.
So how would it work? Baltimore’s own ‘panic merchant’, Porter Stansbury, and John J. Ray of Brisbane, AU discuss the implications.

Free speech only for the Left.
I like it when Leftists like Maher tell us what they really think. Especially Leftist politicians. Then we’ll know never to vote for them. The Lefties are most dangerous when they don’t tell the truth about what they really want to accomplish.
Fair is fair. I mean Rush Limbaugh did say he hoped that Obama failed. That he did not succeed in the ‘fundamental transformation of the United States of America’ into an impoverished and weaker, but more ‘just’ socialist state.
Maher is telling us he hates Trump so much he’d gladly countenance millions of Americans losing their jobs if it would help get rid of Trump. And of course he’s telling us he doesn’t think much of the rest of America’s unwashed masses who voted for Trump either.
So it’s probably safe to say the Maher’s Leftist fellow travelers in the Deep State are likewise willing to wreck the country if it helps them get their way.

Americans Don't Know How They're Paying for Retirement
Anarcho-Tyranny Update.
Americans use guns as much as a million and a half times a year to protect lives and property. This was demonstrated in studies conducted by criminologist Dr. Garry Kleck and economist Dr. John Lott. Now even the federal Center for Disease Control (CDC) is forced to admit this is so (the CDC is decidedly Left leaning in its politics).
Most such defensive uses don’t even involve firing the gun. Rather they are like this one: the civilian defender brandishes the gun and/or takes the criminal suspect at gunpoint, either putting him to flight or holding him for police.
It’s safe to say that had this woman not had a gun she and her 17 year-old daughter would likely have ended up raped and/or killed at the hands of the shovel wielding maniac. The cops just would have shown up to collect evidence of the crime.
Extrapolate from this and its easy to see that if Americans didn’t have access to guns they would be at the mercy of the country’s violent criminal element.

“I've said it before, I know, but it bears repeating: The most amazing, astounding, astonishing statistic of the 21st century is that the annual rate of Muslim immigration into the U.S.A. increased after 9/11.”
- John Derbyshire, 07/17/2016
“Intolerance may not promote progress but it can promote survival. An intolerant Islamic world may outlast the Western world that seems ready to tolerate anything, including the undermining of its own fundamental values and threats to its continued existence.“

First ‘Mexifornia’, and soon to follow: ‘Somalisota’. When they outnumber you, you’ll get to do everything their way, and pay for it all too. You’ve got to admire the Somalis’ hutzpah. When we look at them we see people who can’t get out of their own way and made an absolutely failed hellhole out of their home country. They look at us and see people who are dying out because their womenfolk can’t be bothered to have children. So the Somalis figure to win by forfeit: the future will belong to those who show up for it. In the meantime, before the whites all die out and with the help of the Democrat Party, the Somalis will be able to live the good life on the white tax payer’s money and not worry about begetting more kids than they can support
Yep, the Somalis have sure figured out how to game our democratic system. It probably isn’t too smart to brag about it out loud like they’re doing, least more whites catch on that they are being played by these ‘refugees’ (invaders). But again you gotta admire their hutzpah. You can go along way in this world just bolstered by an abundance of unearned confidence, can’t you?

“The right to buy weapons is the right to be free.”
- A.E. Van Vogt, “The Weapon Shops of Isher”, 1951
“As an instrument of defence the pistol is undoubtedly the best weapon ever invented. While the sword, the dagger and the club require skill, agility and strength, the pistol requires very little of any of these. It renders mere physical strength of no account, and enables the weak and the delicate to successfully resist the attacks of the strong and brutal. In this connection it may be all very well to talk of chivalry, fair play, etc., and to advocate, as some do, the use of the fists alone. How is a woman to ward off the blows of a strong ruffian, or a weak and sickly man of peaceable habits and disposition to defend himself against one trained to brawls and boxing matches? And yet it is on record that during the fearful barbarities perpetrated by Nena Sahib, a delicate English girl shot five of her assailants before she was overcome! Talk of fair play! There can be no fair play with ruffians! They begin with unfair play, and it is well known that they never make an attack unless when they feel that the odds is on their side. Therefore, they are not to be treated as honorable antagonists.”
-The Pistol as a Weapon of Defence in the House and on the Road by Anonymous (1875)
Interesting comparison. Many in the gun fraternity poke fun at the Hi-Point because it looks so cheap and clunky. It can’t work. But its does and quite well thank you. So not a bad choice for someone on a tight budget seeking a home defense gun. And did we say it’s made in the USA? Anyway you can’t beat it for the price. That’s not to say that it beats the Glock in all categories, especially when it comes to durability. Glocks just do not wear out. Then a Glock only has 34 parts and if one of the parts does happen to break it is very easy to replace. You can learn how to replace every one of a Glock’s 34 parts by taking the 12 hour Glock armorer’s course. So there are reasons that Glock owns 60% of the police market in North America.
The Hi-Point pistol caliber carabine is worth consideration as well for home defense. It’s always easier to hit what you are shooting at with a shoulder weapon than it is with handgun and a pistol caliber carbine could be just the ticket for someone who has trouble handling the recoil of a shotgun as well.

"The idea that we millennials’ only hope for retirement is the end of capitalism or the end of the world is actually quite common sentiment among the millennial left."
“Why are so many failing to save? For most, it's simply a matter of logistics. They don't save any money because they don't have any. Far too many of them got crap degrees and are working crap jobs now, but still have to pay back student loans. Others are just being irresponsible—kind of like how I was in my 20s. They figure they have plenty of time, so they don't worry about retirement, not grasping the power of compound interest.”
