Editor’s Note: I have corrected the article to reflect new information.

It all started yesterday evening when I arrived at Pittsburgh International Airport in the rustbelt township of Moon, Pennsylvania for a flight to Boston.

I approached the Kiosk to print my ticket and immediately got an error, asking I go get my boarding pass from the airline’s main booth. I followed the instructions.

There, the woman typed my information in and made a phone call. After a lengthy 20 minutes, she gave me the phone and asked me to “listen” while she briefly walked away. This most likely was a way to get whatever Department of Homeland Security surveillance team to identify me and watch me through the camera.

Shortly after, my ticket printed with the dreaded SSSS – Secondary Security Screening Selection. This is the first time it has ever happened to me (I last flew less than a year ago). The SSSS list is reserved for suspected terrorists and criminals, of which I am neither. There are millions of people on the list, with random samplings finding that up to 40% of people on it have inaccurately registered records. Furthermore, a federal judge last September found that the practice is unconstitutional. I’ve been traveling largely by bus and car to work on news stories or visit friends so I was caught off guard.

Little did I know I was in for an annoying and long night, but I didn’t expect how bad it would be. I have heard from other peaceful dissidents and journalists that they have been harassed like this at the airport for the past year.

I used the restroom then approached the TSA line. They took me to a separate, cordoned off section and began the invasive and downright ridiculous process.

As one man meticulously poked and prodded my frank-n-beans from every angle, a senior citizen checked every nook and cranny of my wallet along with the bristles of my toothbrush for…I’m not sure exactly. I made sure that none of my electronics (phones and laptops) were being illegally searched, which they didn’t, they only ask you to turn them on.

In the commotion (at least 7 TSA agents surrounded me) a woman was asking me for personal information, like my latest home address. My response to her was to ask whether it was mandatory to give it to her. She did not say whether it was mandatory, but kept asking over and over again for my information and I refused to give it. I don’t have anything to hide, but the principle stands.

When the search concluded (about 20-30 minutes), they found a secondary phone I use that happened to be out of batteries. They asked me to turn it on, which I agreed to but needed to charge it. The TSA supervisor told me it was against protocol, and escorted me with all of my stuff back outside to charge my phone, telling me that I would have to do the search all over again from scratch.

At this point I was going to miss my flight. I summoned the supervisor again, who was very polite and friendly to my face, to demand a place where I can complain for my atrocious treatment and that I be compensated for my airline ticket. I informed him that I was a journalist and that being treated like a member of Al Qaeda on my way to a domestic flight was confusing and humiliating.

He gave me a TSA card and in my frustration over the bullshit I had just endured, decided to leave the airport to find different transportation to my destination that would be free of these silly theatrics.

As I walked away, a female police officer named Deb Spotts approached me to ask me why I had gone into the TSA security and back out. I told her they had asked me to go out and charge my phone. She then demanded to know why I had used the bathroom, to which I responded “to take a piss.”

She asked me for identification, and my response was to ask her if I was being detained and was free to leave over and over again. She radio’d her Sergeant, Michael Kuma, who gave the order to arrest me. Multiple police officers, including one carrying an assault weapon, grabbed me and put me in handcuffs.

The entire time I was loudly asking in front of others in the airport lobby why I was being detained, what their probable cause was, and that I wanted to call a lawyer. The police officers transporting me told me that they did not know why I was being detained, which is absurd.

I specifically told the officers that I did not consent to any search of any of my belongings, which they mostly respected. My things were put in a bucket in front of my cell and I was in there for about an hour.

Finally, Sergeant Kuma emerges with his team. I asked him for an explanation.

According to Kuma, the TSA inspectors had “felt” two bullets in one of the tight sleeves of my flight jacket. I have never owned a firearm nor have been shooting.

I asked Kuma why I was not dogpiled and detained during the TSA special suspected terrorist screening process if they thought I was trying to bring bullets on board. Kuma’s response is that bringing bullets on a flight was not illegal, which is a flagrant lie!

I then gave Kuma permission to search my jacket and show me the supposed bullets in my possession. He took his time, briefly got the jacket out of my sight, then acted like he was struggling to get the “bullets” out.

Then, all the cops smiled at me while Kuma said “oh wow, they’re only pen caps!”

He then pulled out black bullet-shaped pen caps from my jacket as I looked on in disbelief. I don’t carry or use pens at all.

These are anti-puncture caps that come pre-installed in M1A1 flight jackets.

I then obtained the Sergeant’s business card, with a phone number on the back to be able to get the police report of my illegal arrest. He told me to wait a while because it takes time to get it in the system. I will be following up on this.

These kinds of shenanigans are so stupid I’m almost tempted to laugh about this myself. This would be a joke if it wasn’t part of a wider system the federal government has in place that has no law enforcement value and is intended solely to intimidate and inconvenience journalists and people with First Amendment protected opinions they don’t like.

The big question I have, and will be investigating, is how did I get on the SSSS list, along with many others I know who engage in peaceful advocacy or dissent? Why in the last year, and all of my life, have I flown without any problems prior to this?

The Department of Homeland Security keeps the criteria for being a “selectee” very private, likely due to the civil liberties ramifications of the system as they drastically expand how many people are targeted and why. As someone who hasn’t even been harassed by the FBI or accused of anything, occam’s razor tells me that in my case and others, they are using a purely political criteria. The only scenario for what just happened is that they are deferring to the Southern Poverty Law Center for names and adding them to the list uncritically. If it came out, it would be a scandal, as the SPLC is a highly discredited, agenda-ridden and universally despised organization.

There is a small chance that it is a case of mistaken identity, but I doubt it. I will be looking into applying for the DHS Traveler Redress Inquiry Program (TRIP) and will see what they tell me.

National Justice is over the target indeed!

    Sorry to hear about this, but it’s only going to get worse. I really hate the possibility of having to spend my old age living in an H.A. Covington novel.
    Isn’t it more likely that it was the ADL rather than the SPLC? They haven’t had any adverse publicity like the SPLC has had, and they have long worked hand in glove with law enforcement including providing training and even awards for the good, umm, boys.

    Well, welcome to the club. I could go into nauseating, blood pressure exploding detail, but it is as useless as screaming at a wall(which I’ve done a few times). The one detail I will mention is one of clown suited pricks walked up to me and yelled “I’m gonna seize your money and you’re gonna miss your flight!” before he had any idea who I was or where I was going – I was just whipping post #243 that day. Yea, the fucks get some kind of pleasure and delight at fucking people over.

    What I wouldn’t give to see the look on their face when there is 7 of me, and only one of them.

  3. To me, the turning point was how Julian Assange was treated. He is de facto subjected to torture and his illegal jailing has not even been met with a single condemnation from any so-called “human rights NGO”, including RSF or Reporters Sans Frontiers which pretend to care about jailing of dissidents and those engaged in journalistic work, which Wikileaks ultimately is about.

    The entire US media not only staying silent but engaging in a long demonisation campaign and cheering Assange’s jailing was a chilling reminder of just how corrupted this class of collaborators are.

    It is important to understand that this pincer move is happening both on the left and on the right. The only common denominator is that if you are a dissident. I won’t be surprised if Unz himself is the target of a harassment campaign soon. These are dark times.

    When you go through airport security in America don’t you go through metal detectors? So you would have either had the jacket x-rayed (they can see it’s plastic not metal) or you walked through the detector and it didn’t go off. In either case the alleged cause of the police being contacted is moot because TSA would know you didn’t have any contraband on you.

    So their rational falls apart within their own narrative: a security personnel thought you had bullets in your coat that weren’t detected by x-ray or metal detector and didn’t bother following up about a security threat and let you leave before police had any contract with you?
    Yeah right.

  5. In your article several days ago, you were calling for Americans to boycott the military in order to aid and abet Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terror. This was when we were on the brink of war with Iran. You were advocating treason. You were urging Americans to give aid and comfort to the enemy in the event of war. Someone with that mindset should absolutely be considered a potential threat when attempting to board a commercial airliner.

  8. Welcome to The Rez. Many here in Indian Country are officially numbered among U.S. “prisoners-of -war.”

  9. Good luck finding out why you are on the list. Those lists have been around for about a decade, at least that’s when I first began being pulled aside for extra security, and was told by agents in two different countries that I was on a list provided by my own government. I don’t think it takes much to be put on a list, and nobody in the U.S. will verify that you are on a list, tell you why you are on a list, who put you on the list, how to get off the list, or if you have been removed from the list.

    I’ve never been a member of a political party or any sort of political group, and I have no training that would make me a threat. I don’t attend rallies or meetings, own any weapons other than inherited antiques that are unregistered and mostly of historical and sentimental value, and my hands are not bloody from anything I’ve done directly of indirectly, which is far more than almost any president, congressman, senator, high official, member of the media or Deep State, over the last 5 or 6 decades, at least, can claim.

    In the UK we are treated the same way by a corporate controlled police force..
    Below is an example the treatment we are receiving from our “Public Servants.”

  15. “The big question I have, and will be investigating, is how did I get on the SSSS list, along with many others I know who engage in peaceful advocacy or dissent? Why in the last year, and all of my life, have I flown without any problems prior to this?” – You got on that list because you publicly say ‘naughty’ things that our Bolshevik overlords don’t like. They know you quite well. As a white man, you dare to stand up for your people and their racial and cultural interests. The Jews might be able to tolerate some things, but white advocacy is not one of them.

    It really doesn’t matter that your advocacy has been peaceful. Even if you couched all your pro-white advocacy in the most charitable, flowery and gracious of words, you would still be hated and ZOG would still look for ways to harass and, ultimately, prosecute you.

    Being a non-violent political dissident gains you little favor in the eyes of a deeply oppressive and Jew-influenced government as ours. Their fear is not about any potential weapons you might own, nor that you might advocate violence against the government. They have sufficient power to deal with those kinds of problems, and they know good-and-well that you have no such intentions of a violent revolution against them.

    No, their deepest fear are your words, the truth that they hold, and the worrisome possibility that you might awaken a greater number of whites about their racial and cultural dispossession. An informed white populace that recognizes what is happening to them, and is growing more and more tired of the hatred spewed against them, is what causes them to lose sleep. Many of those within the ZOG matrix realize that the agenda against whites can only go on for so long before a serious backlash takes root.

    It’s about time whites understand that the USA has died. The very vision that our Founders had of this once great republic has vanished. Their political paradigm and worldview is of an old era, and it does not reflect the mindset or values of our Jew-bribed elected officials. The federal government stands against the white man, and it’s readily apparent for all to see. Only a fool aligns with a government bent on racially replacing him as well as erasing his history and contribution to the nation.

  16. Perhaps some friends at the ADL want to educate you? Readers should get better informed about this wretched organization here:

    https://www.unz.com/runz/american-pravda-the-adl-in-american-society/

    And for some reason, this interview with Nassim Taleb occured to me. Perhaps because of his salient points about minority rule including, “It only works when it is sneaky… If you make it visible, people automatically rebel.”

    (i.e. My hope is that as the Homeland Security staff feel more shame about exacting such vulgar intimidation they will think harder about who is giving them these sorts of orders.)

  17. Unbelievable! What happened to you was a travesty. Did you get the names and IDs of the officers?
    You should’ve recorded them with your smartphone. In any case, the US has become a dystopian police state. Actually, I envy you for getting such special treatment – if anything, it shows that you’re a true dissident who is making the higher-ups nervous. These grug-brained TSA affirmative-action hires get their jollies from patting down and humiliating ordinary citizens in more ways than one – which is why most Americans don’t have any respect for them.

  19. What was so bad about the Nazis? Why did the US invade and conquer Europe back in the 1940s? Atlantic Charter, Human rights, democracy, “Never Again” and all those other lofty ideals? What was at stake during the Cold War? Freedom, Democracy, etc. etc? What does the US stand for?

    For those who don’t know, Striker’s Twitter account was “suspended” not long ago.

    PAYPAL POGROM: TRUNEWS’ ACCOUNT CANCELLED AFTER JEFFREY EPSTEIN REPORT

    Spend the 15m to watch the entire video; at the 11m45s mark, you will hear: “I promise you, it’s coming. It shouldn’t happen in the USA, but America has been taken over. And it was done through the Jeffrey Epstein child sex blackmail operation, run by Israel.”

    The earlier TruNews video JEW COUP: SEDITIOUS JEWS ORCHESTRATING TRUMP IMPEACHMENT LYNCHING, which highlighted/named all the Jews (and there are a lot of them) involved in pushing Trump’s impeachment, resulted in TruNews being kicked off JewYouTube.

    Regardless of how you feel about the particulars, including specific allegations in recent TruNews videos about the Epstein case (e.g. KOSHER COVER-UP: U.S. RULING CLASS HIDES EPSTEIN CHILD SEX BLACKMAIL OPERATION), something is going on in America — and I believe Striker was targeted because of who he is and what he does/writes.

    At the moment, many on the Dissident Right criticize small government, non-interfering Libertarianism, saying it just enables unfettered, neoliberal, globohomo capitalism (e.g. PayPal banning TruNews, among many others) — on the other hand, too often big government, no matter how originally well-intentioned, leads to abuses like this (TSA).

    It is treasonous to serve in a military fighting unjust wars on behalf of a foreign nation whose interests are inimical to the interests of your own nation and its people.

    But you are closer to what is happening in the country than you realize. Pretty soon it will be treasonous and illegal to criticize our military efforts on behalf of Israel. And for some reason I suspect that you-Valley Forge Warrior-would celebrate such a development.

    Get off it Hasbara. Everything about that narrative has been debunked. The good guys won that battle.

    You were advocating treason.

    You were advocating an unnecessary war based on a false pretext and on behalf of a foreign country. Sounds a lot like treason to me.

    Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terror.

    Not even close. Lay off the Breitbart. Neocon Hasbara said the same of Hussein’s Iraq. 15 of 19 9/11 hijackers were Saudis. The rest were Egyptian. None were Iranian. The overwhelming majority of American casualties attributed to Soleimani in Iraq were actually committed by Muqtada al-Sadr’s militia as a response to David Patraeus’s decision to target his group; Hezbollah hasn’t killed a single American soldier since 1983, when we put troops in Lebanon where they weren’t wanted. Claims of IEDs in Iraq being linked to Iran have also been questioned. Even if true, the U.S. was an illegal occupier of Iraq as no U.N. resolution authorized it. You went where you didn’t belong, foolishly attacked local militias, and paid the price for it. Besides, the U.S. supported mass murderer Saddam Hussein in the Iran-Iraq War and killed far more Iranians as a result than any figure for Americans killed by Iran.

    Americans to boycott the military in order to aid and abet Iran

    Liar. He called for white men to boycott the military to avoid being killed. There’s nothing remotely illegal about that, and he was right anyway. Our people shouldn’t get killed based on lies.

    You were advocating treason.

    [rolleyes]

    You were urging Americans to give aid and comfort to the enemy in the event of war. Someone with that mindset should absolutely be considered a potential threat when attempting to board a commercial airliner.

    You were advocating for a war based on a false narrative on behalf of a foreign country. Sounds like treason to me; but probably not as you’re likely Israeli. No American should be considered a physical threat and harassed by the government because they have an opinion some goose stomping imbecile like yourself doesn’t like.

    Intelligent disobedience is a way of life we must teach all our warriors or first responders. The most significant thing the front line officers and soldiers and agents feel is their own powerlessness within the bureaucracy employing them. So they direct that impotent rage outwards to people who have less means to resist.

    Bullies are weak. Paradoxically, if we teach them self-respect and how to demand their orders in writing with clarity, this giving them power over their own bullies, they become strong enough to join us in dissent. We will need their acumen, skills and street presence when the time comes.

    Still butthurt you didn’t get my country to attack Iran, eh? Remember, folks. These people, no matter how “conservative” or “liberal” they act, are not on your side. They are always on their own ethnicity’s side. They are pathological liars and racists who’ll turn on you in a heartbeat if they think you’ve crossed their interests. Best to discard them all together. Example: this Israeli poster’s schadenfreude over an American being harassed by a corrupt government for opinions he doesn’t like. Things like due process and civil rights don’t mean anything to his tribe. Their group comes first in their minds. Your freedoms come far after that. Don’t believe me? Try criticizing Israel on a college campus now. Oh, right. They’ve made that practically illegal. Never mind that pesky First Amendment thing. If you call yourself libertarian or conservative (or even liberal progressive), don’t ever give me any “muh constitution” nonsense if you support that. Like I said, they are never on your side. They are on whatever side benefits them at the moment.

    People should understand there are (apparently) two separate issues here: 1) being (allegedly) randomly selected for enhanced screening, which is a longstanding practice of TSA (I’ve experienced this several times, and it also happens in Europe); 2) being on some “list” which, among other things, seems to guarantee you will receive closer screening when flying (?).

    Here “Eric Striker” describes even further harassment meted out to him, which does seem to indicate he was targeted (?) — I’ve never visited the DS, so I’m not sure what he wrote there; from what I know of the site, I have less trouble believing what has been/is published there attracts attention.

    But whatever the reason for the four S’s, my suggestion is that in the future just politely answer simple questions the TSA people ask you. These people don’t know why you got the four S’s only that you did for some reason. Be pleasant. Unlike cops they don’t have arrest authority.

    Don’t inform TSA or cops of your Constitutional rights or ask them why you were additionally screened or being detained. You made things orders of magnitude worse when you withdrew from the screening process (you said you were told to do to charge your phone). Either you misunderstood or that TSA screener gave you very bad instructions. People up to no good or are carrying contraband are notorious for fleeing the screening process.

    Getting confrontational by informing TSA and airport cops of your rights and asking about why you are being questioned/detained makes things worse. You’ll lose this game a 100 out of a 100 times. Study the book How to Win Friends and Influence People and be the embodiment of it when at a TSA checkpoint or questioned by cops or, God forbid, before a judge in a courtroom.

    I know of a woman, the wife of a prominent D.C. attorney and former federal prosecutor, who got mouthy and confrontational at a TSA checkpoint. She refused their requests, informed them of her rights, tried to withdraw from the screening process, the whole nine yards. She missed her flight to PBI and had to sit in a holding cell until the following Monday morning when she could go before a judge in federal court in Alexandria, VA. Long story short she got off with a $10,000 fine for being a pain in the ass at a TSA checkpoint.

    The secret chitlist began with the Palmer Raids right after WW1. It’s still secret, from you and me, in a way. Hoover had an official list of people to jail (or murder), Brother Martin and brother John and Brother Bobby…And of course there was a chitlist under Lincoln too…and one may suppose also under Washington.

    What’s changed in our time is that they are again acting on their list, not simply keeping it up to date.

    With regards to air travel: get the Feds entirely out of ALL commercial airline travel regulation. Abolish the F.A.A., T.S.A. , Homeland Security etc. There is NO constitutional authority for these particular scam agencies [nor for most others].

    Fully privatize all airports and airlines, so they can then freely decide on their own security levels for customers, and let customers then freely choose which airline they are willing to put their trust in and spend their money with.

    The result of anarcho-tyranny is that government swells in power, criminals are not controlled, and law-abiding citizens wind up being repressed by the state and attacked by thugs.

  58. Sam Francis: ANARCHO-TYRANNY — Where Multiculturalism Leads (2004):

    To have freedom on a stable political basis, you have to have a homogeneous culture and society, composed of people who share the same values and beliefs. If they don’t share them, you can hold them together only by force.

    “Society cannot exist,” wrote the great eighteenth century conservative Edmund Burke, “unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere, and the less of it there is within, the more of it there must be without.”

    Restraints come from within when a population shares cultural and moral values; when they don’t, external force has to provide the restraints.

    Unwilling to control immigration and the cultural disintegration it causes, the authorities instead control the law-abiding.

    This is precisely the bizarre system of misrule I have elsewhere described as “anarcho-tyranny”—we refuse to control real criminals (that’s the anarchy) so we control the innocent (that’s the tyranny).

    Mr. Striker,

    I can resonate with your experiences as I’ve been subject to the TSA Selectee List on several of occasions. All within a year, I was set aside for additional screening upon entry to the United States from Russia, Western Europe and Mexico. Furthermore, I was set aside for questioning while traveling between two Western European nations as I needed a visa for one of them.

    None of this has been a surprise to me as I’ve been under Federal investigation for the last couple of years, possibly dating back to 2015. I’ve had dozens of contacts with Law Enforcement in a multitude of states and have been escorted out of two countries (Canada and the United Kingdom). I’ve been unjustly profiled, monitored, harassed, baited, and provoked by numerous law enforcement entities. The FBI have opened up (and closed) several of Guardian Files on me. A couple of Fusion Centers have compiled “Officer Safety Reports” on me that are flagged anytime that my ID or plates are run by law enforcement. These reports become a catalyst for additional questioning and harassment. Within these reports that are used to falsely label me as a “Domestic Extremist” who holds “Anti-governmental” and “Anti-Law Enforcement” ideologies, there are requests from the FBI JTTF for a wide-array of intelligence gathering and additional notes on my associations, travel, interests, alleged political involvements, and even the books that I’ve read (or allegedly enjoy reading). They’ve labeled me as a “Survivalist”, “Outdoors Enthusiast”, “White Supremacist”, “Oath Keeper” and indirectly a “Sympathizer” of foreign governments, “terrorist” organizations, and/or causes.

    My professional background and knowledge have gifted me the ability to file complex FOIA requests in order to learn more about the inner workings of these investigations. While I’ve learned a lot from obtaining records and police reports, a great deal of the information, especially from Fusion Centers has been either denied or heavily redacted. The denied requests are listed for reasons that fall under provisions of the Patriot Act. I’ve become infuriated with the events that have transpired as my rights have been eroded and my civil liberties violated without any recourse. I’ve spoken up about these events and have verbally confronted law enforcement on multiple of occasions.

    Nonetheless, this nightmare escalated just days after my return from being in Russia for most of the summer. I was staying at a hotel for a couple of days as I wanted to see some people in another region of the country different than where I live. I stepped out to grab a coffee and return to the hotel only to be “greeted” by nearly 10 FBI Special Agents from a couple of jurisdictions. I was interrogated and stood my ground. After some time passed, additional SAs appeared with search warrants for my electronics and other items. That was nearly six months ago and all that my attorney has been able to learn is that this matter is being handled through the National Security Division of the US Attorney’s Office. They’re not releasing any of information other than that I’m under investigation (no shit).

    Again, I’ve been vocal about my beliefs and challenging the system as I believe it’s significantly flawed. None of my alleged associations or involvements are criminal, but I feel that I’m being investigated for “though crimes” and because of my background as they [FBI] deem it as an asset to others [Dissidents/Foreign Agents] in terms of knowledge and capabilities.

    One of the SAs told me that their reasoning for executing the search warrants and questioning me about my experiences while in Russia, is because “I hate the country [USA]”, “I keep popping up on the FBI’s radar”, “my educational and professional background”, “my intelligence”, and “because of the type of company that I run [PIA/PMC]”.

    I told one of the SAs to their face that I’ll never back down from my convictions and that I’m not afraid of them as they’re a terrorist organization. This has been well-documented over the years between our contacts. This has been a tough road and it has caused me many of inconveniences. Furthermore, it’s taken a toll on my health and livelihood. I’ve more-less detached from everything and went into isolation over the last several of months. I no longer have a life as it’s now a waiting game. What they’re doing to me is nothing less than evil and they’re Satan, himself. All of my US-based contacts have gone silent and have become compromised.

    I urge the readers here to always maintain keen situational awareness and create a vanguard to protect yourself at all times. Always have options and take every precaution to make certain that those options are available to you under extreme duress. This isn’t a game; it’s real and will only get worse as war intensifies against Dissidents.

  61. Striker’s brand of confusion is probably more effective for conservatives and this includes the zionist “far-right” anarcho-neocon liberals as Striker calls himself or the radical ultra-left traditionalist right-averse as he also calls himself and “them” from time to time.

    These same people like locking people up in Free Speech zones and beating the heads of protesters for trying to exercise their constitutional rights. Which begs the question: Why can’t these people keep their sense of patriotism, obedience and political leanings when they go to the airport?

    True not much in the way of civil liberties in 1941 NS Germany. But, as Moldbug (a mischling) points out, they were right not to trust Howard K. Smith:
    https://www.unqualified-reservations.org/2009/04/gentle-introduction-to-unqualified_15/

    [MORE]

    Every nation in the 20th century produced masterpieces of mendacity. Here is one, from Last Train from Berlin (1942), by the New Deal journalist Howard K. Smith. Bear in mind: Smith is observing the Nazi and Soviet regimes at a point in time at which the former has not committed millions of political murders, and the latter has.

    On first glance, Germany in 1936 was overwhelmingly attractive, and first impressions disarmed many a hardy anti-Nazi before he could lift his lance for attack. Its big cities were cleaner than big cities ought, by custom, to be. You could search far and wide through Berlin’s sea of houses or Hamburg’s huge harbour district, but you could never find a slum or anything approaching one. On the countryside, broad, flourishing acres were cut into neat checkerboards. People looked good. Nobody was in rags, not a single citizen. They were well dressed, if not stylishly dressed. And they were well fed. The impression was one of order, cleanliness and prosperity—and this has been of immense propaganda value to the Nazis.

    There is a great fallacy here, and it is a mistake which an unfortunately large number of young American students I met in Heidelberg made and retained for a long time. The fallacy is in connecting this admirable order, cleanliness and apparent prosperity with the Nazi government. Actually, and this was pointed out to me by a German dock-worker on my first magic day in Bremen, Germans and Germany were neat, clean and able to do an amazing lot with amazingly little long before Hitler came to power. Such slums as existed were removed by the Socialist government and replaced with neat workers’ apartments while the Nazis were still a noisy minority chalking swastikas on back-alley fences.,
    […]
    Once, however, I broke my routine and took a trip to Russia. That land impressed me disgustingly favorably for a individual who was still more Liberal than Socialist. Contrary to the development of my reactions in Germany, Russia looked better the longer I stayed and the more I saw. Russia was not neat, clean, and orderly. Russia was dirty and disorderly.

    But the spirit of the thing got me. The Bolsheviks did not inherit cleanliness and order; they inherited a wrecked feudal society, and in a relatively short period wonders had been done. The edges were rough and the effort was amateur. But that was just it; it was amateur, everybody was doing it. You got the impression that each and every little individual was feeling pretty important doing the pretty important job of building up a State, eager and interested as a bunch of little boys turned loose in a locomotive and told to do as they please. It showed promise like a gifted child’s first scratchings of “a house” on paper. Klein aber mein; a little but mine own, as the proverb goes.

    What is more, the standard of living was definitely rising, not falling. The whole picture was not as pretty as the German one, but the atmosphere, utterly devoid of any trace of militarism or racial prejudice, was clean and healthy as the streets were dirty. I knew all along the atmosphere reminded me of a word, but I couldn’t think what it was until I got back to Germany. The word was “democracy.” That, I know, is a strange reaction to a country which is well known to be a dictatorship, but the atmosphere simply did not coincide with the newspapers’ verdict.

  73. Never, ever fly. If you do then sooner or later the TSA’s thugs will inevitably threaten and harass you. The only way to stop them is to convince the airlines that they must choose between their continued existence or the TSA’s.

    We’ve had most of the rights and freedoms we once had stolen or curtailed by the people who now run this country. These people are aided and abetted by the very institutions and organizations which once protected us from them, e.g., the courts and “civil rights” organizations like the ACLU.

    I fear that the only recourse left will ultimately be a violent and/or divisive one, i.e., a low intensity civil war like the Irish “troubles” and/or an implicit or explicit separation of the USA into distinct nations mirroring current reality.

Probably the thug types wouldn’t be interested in this new agency at all, since it does not involve barking out orders or having any power of search or seizure. In other words, there would be no place for the archetypal imperious sheboon.

    Didn’t Solzhenitsyn write about how IF only the Russians and others would have stood up, IF only they would have fought back in the beginning before things became so bad. IF they would have made a stand when the Soviet goons just started placing innocent Russians and others in gulags, or even murdering or torturing them. Almost anyone could become an enemy of the state and be carted away to hellish gulags to be tortured or even murdered. As people throughout history have often done, they stood by and watched, too terrified to take a stand, all too happy that it wasn’t them this time around. Well, those too cowardly to take a stand when it was still possible to take a stand and win, soon would find out much too late that they had simply stood idly by which in turn allowed themselves to ruled over for decades by a tyrannical regime that could have been stopped in its tracks IF only they had fought back when it was possible to fight back.

    I don’t see America doing anything different anytime soon. Whites Americans, like perhaps the Ukrainians of the early 1930’s are being set up for a fall and anyone who can’t see this happening is either deaf, dumb and blind or more than likely just can’t face or handle the truth. It is becoming more obvious each and every passing year what are the plans are for Whites in Europe, North America and Australia. We are probably one step away from what is going on to Whites in South Africa, and when we lose power in our countries and become a minority my prediction is that life for Whites in the countries that they built or that they had inhabited for centuries, will live and experience the same type of terror that Whites in the former Soviet Union experienced long ago and what Whites in South Africa are experiencing today.

    Either learn from history or be doomed to repeat it. WAKE UP and take a stand. Fight for YOUR CIVIL RIGHTS IN OUR COUNTRY. We have just as much RIGHTS IN OUR OWN COUNTRY THAN ANYONE ELSE. QUIT ACCEPTING SECOND CLASS CITIZEN STATUS.

If an Iranian general is a terrorist for planning violence against civilians, every US officer involved in ‘shock and awe’ bombings, Phoenix counter-intelligence campaigns (etc) is a terrorist.

    No, not at all. What I wrote is simple clear uncomplicated fact.

    Let’s look at it from a White Nationalist perspective.

    Sure, blacks are murderous and immigrants are taking all the jobs and disrupting communities.

    Sure. Fine. You are right.

    But whingeing on and on about these tangential insignificances is wrong.

    Why? Because as long as you’re not constantly bugging the fuckers in charge about where de money went, then you are doing what the fuckers in charge want you to do.

    In other words, if you spend all your time worrying about or actually harassing some identity group or other, good or bad or in between, then you are not uniting with everybody who is not rich, no matter who they are, to pry the goddam money out of the tightly-clamped fingers of the very rich.

    In other words, you are wasting your time. You are squabbling amongst yourselves, which is the exact divisa-et-impera imperative of Identity Politics, custom-made just for clowns like you.

    In other words, you think your problem is a couple of small-time gangsters in your neighborhood, when your actual problem is the KochSorosGatesBezosEtc. hydra.

    In other words, once you get all the blacks or whoevers under control, just the way you want them, you’ll still be starving to death and spending your entire life in abject terror of winding up in the street.

    What were you researching that got them wrapped around the axle (if you can say)? You know you are tracking correct w/ your FOIA requests or you would be persona non grata to “them”.

    The investigations started when someone reported that I was researching certain groups and events that were taking place in the Middle East a couple of years ago. The reasoning behind this was because I had an interest in working and/or volunteering to assist with certain matters there. The way that it was reported raised flags with LE and they proceeded to get the FBI involved, who cleared me within a matter of months. Basically, someone became aware of what I was researching, which was a subject that I had a keen interest in, and they become concerned that I might be a “sympathizer” or worse to that subject.

    Nonetheless, the ongoing matters haven’t been due to research, but more-so due to alleged activism, affiliations, and other related matters — both notionally and internationally. Unfortunately, I can’t discuss more at this time.

    I bought this e- book on TOR about how to a obtain a new identity in Philippines because they have so many unclaimed dead bodies. You can go 2 ways- “fake” your death w/ the dead body to the US and then buy a legal new identity with a new nationality.

    It’s funny how you’ve mentioned the art of disappearing. I’m familiar with the concept that you’ve referenced and I’ve also read some similar books by experts on how to disappear. It mainly comes down to what/who you’re running from and how disciplined you are. It’s a fascinating concept, regardless of whether one commits to the act or not.

    At first, I laughed about it and thought that perhaps only certain people within my circles thought that way. But then as things progressed and you become chest deep in the Dissident Right, you quickly realize that many of people think this way and you’re more-less forced to martyr yourself (as in giving up everything in your past life — family, friends, professional connections, etc.).

    I’ve walked this road and it has been tough at times, but I don’t regret it. As things become uglier by the day in this country, the more I realize that I’ve made the right choice.

    When dealing with “law enforcement” or any border officials (yes, this includes the TSA) one’s goal should be to terminate the interaction as quickly as possible, especially when being subject to questionable (and illegal) actions, even if you are in the right.

    “Going along to get along” can be unpalatable, especially if you know that you are in the right,but ask yourself: “Will the “pushback” deprive me of accomplishing your task?”

    You cannot “win” against those who possess this (illegal) “authority”.

    This especially applies to police “traffic stops” and the TSA at airports.

    Police quite often utilize illegal means to “expand” a traffic stop into a “fishing expedition” and do “plant” substances on people and in vehicles they wish to entrap. They are allowed to lie, per supreme court rulings while you are not permitted to lie.

    It is important to state that one should never consent to search. Such refusal should be politely but firmly stated. “I never consent to searches” is a good statement. They may search anyway, but quite often will accede to your refusal. This is a form of “pushback” that can work in one’s favor.

    Allowing “law enforcement” types to search one’s vehicle or person allows them to “plant” contraband or other substances and thereby have an excuse for an arrest.

    This occurs more often than most people realize.

    The TSA’s power rests in the fact that they can detain you long enough to miss your flight.

    The time will come when increasing “pushback” will be necessary, but not at the present time.

    It is interesting to note that even in communist countries, citizens routinely argue with police officers without incident. Such is not the case in the USA where israeli “command and control” tactics are a staple of American police procedures. “We are all Palestinians, now”.

    Witness the murder of Daniel Shaver by Mesa Arizona police officer Philip Brailsford for being unable to crawl with his hands behind his back (a physical impossibility). In addition, Brailsford was looking to murder someone by having the words “you’re f#cked” engraved on the dust cover of his weapon. He was tried but acquitted of all charges. To add insult to injury, he was reinstated and given a disability pension.

    The whole system is rotten. At the present time, the best thing to do is to minimize the interaction to the greatest extent possible.

    At least the people of Hong Kong are willing to take to the streets and fight for their freedom.

    White Americans? Are you kidding. Whites are being butchered, slaughtered, and raped in the streets of their own homelands by marauding and often illegal nonwhites every single day in some city or town in Europe and North America. Often the story never makes it past the local news network if it even sees the light of the day on a local channel or paper. Whites will whine a little bit or even blame the victim but take to the streets and protest for the right of our people to be able to walk our streets safely and not be targeted for their white skin? Protest against nonwhite racism or nonwhite on White violence? Are you kidding. Whites don’t care as long as it doesn’t impact them directly.

    Several men in the Charlottesville, Virginia rally were arrested for merely defending themselves and others and sentenced to years in state prison for merely defending against being beaten to a pulp. One guy helped an elderly man who was being beaten with a flashlight by a black guy and now that white man who did what any honorable person would have done is sitting behind a prison cell for years. Look at the video of the man in the car who was accused of murder. ( I heard the girl who died was extremely obese and died from a hear attack.) Any person with two eyes can see the guy was surrounded by 30-40 people bashing his car with bats, lead pipes, and I have heard it reported someone had an assault rifle. The guy was being attacked by an angry mob of people who were blocking the street and had they been able to pull him out of the car they would have beaten him to death. Imagine yourself in that position? What would you or anyone else have done? IF that guy was some kind of homicidal maniac he would have plowed into the crowd at high speed before deciding to back up and get out of Dodge.

    Do people care that these young men sit in state prison rotting away? Hardly. Most Whites are more interested in the upcoming Super Bowl. Whites will continue to whimper and whine as their freedoms of speech and will even give up their guns when it happens. I love how all these good ole boys and rednecks put on their tough guy act and spew that nonsense how they will have to take their guns and they aren’t turning over their guns. Those clowns will be the first to meekly hand over their guns if it came down to it. Look at the track record. Whites have sat back and allowed their schools to be integrated which allowed their children to be bullied, harassed, even beaten, raped and even murdered by nonwhites in public schools for decades and counting. Whites solution to this was sending their kids to private schools, home schooling, etc., and to hell with the poor white kids left behind. Whites have proven throughout history that for the most part, they will kill and maim each other in wars like World War I and World War II, American Civil War, etc., or they will go off and fight in a nonwhite war like Vietnam to help nonwhites, but they don’t have the guts to fight for their own civil rights or their own people right in their own homelands.

    I am seriously starting to wonder if most Whites aren’t really cowards for the most part, either that or they are mentally disturbed or psychologically damaged in some way. Hate to keep talking about the same subject matter, but there is definitely something wrong with Whites that I don’t see in any of the other races of people. Btw, when I say “Whites,” I am talking about Whites with European ancestry. For the life of me, I can’t imagine China electing a non-Chinese man as their leader, I can’t even imagine the Chinese electing a Korean or Japanese man as the leader of their country, even if the Korean or Japanese candidate was pro-Chinese. America elected Obama, who had a proven track record of being racist towards Whites, and yet millions of Whites voted for him. Then we have elected our own fellow Whites as POTUS who are too afraid to even mention what they intend to do for White Americans, yet they have no problem telling everyone what they will do for Jews, African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanics, etc., etc.

    White leftoids will take to the streets marching for injustice against Blacks or any other nonwhite, or when there is a black thug shot by a white cop, yet these same white leftoids are nowhere to be seen when a white couple in Tennessee is beaten, raped, tortured, burned, and then murdered and stuff into a dumpster by a gang of black thugs. Matter of fact, the few Whites that did have the guts to demand justice for the victims in Christoper-Newsom murders were met with hecklers both black and white for having the temerity to demand justice for these horrific murders. Btw, the Christian-Newsom murders weren’t even deemed a “hate crime.”

    Do you think the Chinese would allow themselves to be abused and discriminated against in their own country like Whites in America and Europe? Do you think the Japanese people would allow themselves to be dominated in their own country by a smaller group of foreigners who have no loyalty to Japan without even putting up a fight or stand by idly while their civil rights are taken away from them?

    Whites appear to be brave only when slaughtering each other ( which makes no sense whatsoever, consider how many millions of the cream of the crop lost their lives in both World Wars) or when they have the enemy hopelessly outgunned like in the American Indian Wars. We all know how Eastern Europeans were led like lambs to the slaughter by the Bolsheviks and how later Solzhenitsyn would lament on how if they had only stood up when they had a chance.

    And yet yours is actually excellent advice for anyone who is filled with anxiety, fear or even dread at the idea of being brought before a judge, or arrested, or any such thing.
    There is no shame in being afraid of the power of the state. It’s been indoctrinated into you your whole life.(And anyway, maybe you were just born a pussy from a long line of pussies. Not your fault!)

    But if the thought of conforming to the dictats of evil men who have taken control of powerful institutions within your homeland fills you with repulsion, but of course you are intelligent and experienced enough to know that confrontation of lower ranking order-followers is counter-productive and futile, but still you would challenge their authority, – then other, more empowering advice may be pertinant.

    Know your rights.
    KNOW the law and the codes of law enfocement. Learn things as you go, as they become relevant.
    Be fluid.
    Know your limits.
    Do you accept the jurisdiction of the state? If not, why not? And how might you refute it? These are important questions to ask yourself. Research. Look inside. Find the answers.

    KNOW YOURSELF. Remain centered and grounded. Remain polite and even friendly…
    … as you challenge the authority of public servants, of every order, every impossition, every charge, every indignity.

    Dave Chappelle has always been a racist asshole, and this clip is a perfect manifestation of the soft propaganda our entertainment media has been distributing for years.

    Five ethnicities get to pick their first round draft choice:

    Black – Tiger Woods
    Jew – Lenny Kravitz
    Latino – Elian Gonzalez
    White – Colin Powell (Bonus: Condoleezza Rice)
    Chinese – Wu Tang Clan

    Regardless of ethnicity, five picks are black people; only Elian differs. And only the white guy is booed when he takes the podium, for reasons never explained. And the black guy wipes his hand on his jacket after shaking hands with the white guy, who is also played by a black guy (Dave). Let me repeat: only white people are unrepresented on the stage.

    I know Chappelle’s got his target demographic, but I recently listened to 15 minutes of “Netflix is a joke” on Sirius XM — four of the five comedians were black, one was a female Jew. All five did bits about humiliating white people. So I don’t think Chappelle is unique.

    They mock us without cease, so no wonder white millennials apologize and their elders pop opioids.

    While I was abroad a couple of years ago, I met a woman who was in her 40’s and has lived between Turkey and Georgia. She was paying under $100 a month for stunning apartments. Furthermore, she was some kind of consultant, had her own practice, and earned good money. She grew up in Appalachia.

    Didn’t Solzhenitsyn write about how IF only the Russians and others would have stood up, IF only they would have fought back in the beginning before things became so bad.

    He sure did and as an example I use how Trotsky & Co. spearheaded the Bolshevik Revolution as a means to obtaining genocide against Eastern Orthodox Christians. We’re experiencing the infancy of what transpired then and the results will be strikingly similar unless more take notice. Time is no longer on our side, and perhaps it never was.

    The fate of the Boers in South Africa will foreshadow the fates of ethnic European Whites across North America. It doesn’t take much investigative work to uncover evidence of the significant shifts between race relations in the West. The United States currently possesses six cities in the global top 20 for murder rates in cities with a population of at least 300,000 and that are now considered to be in an active war zone.

    The sad thing is, most people don’t want to hear this, and even if they do listen, they quickly forget and migrate back to supporting sportsball and those who advocate for their demise.

    When I was young America was fighting North Vietnam, a serious war in which tens of thousands of our young men were killed. At that time hundreds of thousands of students marched to protest the war and many of them were rooting for the enemy. Many radical organizations sprung up such as Students for a Democratic Society and the Black Panther Party. These groups explicitly called for the violent overthrow of the US government and the victory of the North Vietnamese. They marched through downtown Washington chanting “Ho Ho Ho Chi Minh, Dare to struggle, dare to win!” and other slogans such as “Off the pigs” (kill the police) and “The only direction is insurrection, the only solution is REVOLUTION.” The government’s response to all this was merely to keep the peace and try to surveille the radicals. Most of the big-name communist sympathizers of the day went on to prosperous careers as professors, lawyers, and consultants.

    Having witnessed all this stuff, it makes my blood boil when some Israel-first defender of neocon foreign policy invokes the idea of treason and disloyalty to threaten true Americans who denounce our wretched foreign policy. And I can tell you that many of these same neocons, in youth, were marching and shouting slogans in favor of our communist enemies. But that’s the way some people are. They use whatever weapons they can find and care nothing for honesty or consistency.

Vietnam, yet another nonwhite war where Whites went off to fight a war that didn’t benefit Whites in the least. Instead of fighting over in Vietnam back then, we should have been fighting against our country being destroyed from within by the usual suspects who now call themselves “neo-cons” and “progressives.” Kind of weird how the only thing the repuke neo-COMMIES and the leftoid progressives in Washington, D.C. can agree on is Wars For The Greater Israel Project and the browning of America.

    Keep making excuses for Whites all you want and see where that gets you. THE TRUTH is sometimes the finger should be pointed at WHITES themselves. This country was at one time nearly 90% White and Jews could not have taken power without the aiding and abetting, greedy, myopic shabbos goy. Like I said in another post, there is no way in hell that the Chinese would elect a non-Chinese leader much less a non-Chinese person who had proven himself to be racist towards Chinese.

    Sure there was a draft during Vietnam, but last time I checked our Presidents were White, the vice President at the time was White, and more than likely well over 80-85% of the people in Washington, D.C. in power were White.

    It bears repeating over and over and over. Whites will go out of their way to feed and clothe nonwhites in Africa, Haiti, Southeast Asia, South America, etc., but they will walk right past their white brothers and sisters in their own town who could use their help. Franklin Graham and Greta Van Susteren ( formerly of FOX News) will fly to Southeast Asia or Haiti to help those poor brown and black people, but Graham who lives only a few miles from poor Whites in Appalachia worries more about black and brown people thousands of miles away.

    Meanwhile how often do you see Blacks or Browns helping poor Whites? Answer: NEVER. Warrick Dunn, a former NFL player for Tampa and Atlanta used to purchase homes for people and without fail everyone that Dunn bought a home for was black just like Dunn. Can you imagine a white player who only purchased homes for poor Whites? You should and can do anything with your money you want to, but I can tell you right now that some anti-White leftoid in the MSM would have labeled a white player that bought homes for only Whites as a “racist.”

    Anyhow, you can keep making excuses for Whites, but even other people like Japanese, Chinese, etc., think and say that Whites in America and Europe are crazy for allowing their countries to be taken away from them. They think Whites are loco, chicken or both.

    How do you suggest someone ‘go for it’? — while Americans can travel to many countries as tourists without a visa (not as many as the Japanese can), a stay is limited to a few months maximum (usually 3) — you cannot just go and live in whatever country you choose: you need an appropriate visa, or the appropriate permission.

    The ex-pat commenter “Jeff Stryker” was honest enough to admit that he got his start overseas because a friend/acquaintance offered him a job in Dubai; as a result he received a visa to live and work there — this is how most ex-pats get started living overseas: via some kind of employment visa issued when a guarantee of a job already exists.

    Australia is a good example of how difficult it can be to just emigrate: basically, if you are over 30 they don’t want you — they want young, healthy, well-educated people who will work and be big net taxpayers for decades.

    People with a LOT of money find it easier — Malta is an example — but you must have enough for them to be convinced you will not/never be a burden on their social or medical system.

    People forget that the atomic bombings weren’t the only bombings of Japan. B-29 bombers of the 20th Air Force, based in the Marianna Islands, began bombing Japan with massive fire raids beginning in the fall of 1944. The raid on Tokyo on the night of March 9, 1944, killed more people than the atomic bombs. They devastated cities all across Japan until there was nothing left worth bombing.

    It was actually not so much the bombings that brought the war to an end as it was the actions of US Navy submarines, who had cut the supply lines from Japan’s conquered territory back to the resource-poor mainland. From The First Casualty by Phillip Knightley:

    The success of the United States Navy in denying Japan her vital oil supplies is told in one simple table of figures. Of what was produced in the southern oil fields that Japan had conquered, the following amounts reached Japan: in 1942, 40 percent; in 1943, 15 percent; in 1944, 5 percent; in 1945, none. This is what really defeated Japan. Without or without the atom bomb, the Russian entry into the Pacific war, or the great naval battles, Japan was finished, because her ships, aircraft, tanks and vehicles could not move. They had no fuel.

    I should add that the bulk of Japan’s army was marooned in Manchuria, unable to return to defend the homeland. Those same submarines that were sinking the oil ships also kept troops from being shipped back to Japan.

    There are many corporate efforts to “reach out” to the community and provide “help” for those who are elderly, “disadvantaged” and “poor”. Although such programs are well-meaning, they don’t help the people who truly need it.

    One such effort in Detroit was a program called “Paint the Town”. This effort involved local businesses that would “volunteer” their employees to provide help to the elderly and those who were deemed to be “disadvantaged”.

    My company “volunteered” a number of us employees to contribute to this effort. Initially, I looked forward into helping out those who were “disadvantaged”, making things easier for them in their community. The gamut of services provided varied from picking up trash and landscaping to painting houses and doing minor repairs.

    My “crew” was assigned to paint a house. There was a black family consisting of a man and woman (not elderly) and three (grown) men (children), approximately 14 to 18 years of age.

    These “children” watched us work, painting the house while smoking “blunts” (marijuana) and drinking their “fortys” (alcohol), while laughing at us white “fools”. The “man of the house” was OK with the color while the woman of the house constantly complained about the color.

    The question that I never vocalized, but was in the back of my mind was “why don’t these people clean up and paint their own house”.

    I, for one would be ashamed if “outsiders” came into my neighborhood to do things that I should be doing for myself.

Hell, Blacks were even attacking Whites after a very brown, George Zimmerman killed Trayvon. I don’t think Blacks even attacked Hispanics or IF they did, it was an isolated incident or two.

Getting a job offer (if you have an in-demand profession such as TEFL), marrying a local seem to be the most common route. You can investigate the options once you are in a country on a tourist visa or during a 3-month visa-free period, as applicable. I also mention that there is a new scheme in Russia where skilled foreigners from advanced countries can apply to settle (of course it doesn’t say that you need to be white, but the examples I came across in the press were white South African farmers and German families who didn’t want their children brainwashed with gender-bending ideology).

    Depending one one’s income, availability, management . . .etc painting one’s house is no simple task, nor is it cheap. And it’s rarely just painting. Which is why most people don’t paint their own homes. Ask any DIY’er, simple projects are often not as simple as they start out.

    There you are engaging in excuse making for niggers, once again.

    In actuality, painting one’s house is pretty simple and not very expensive at all. It mostly depends on the quality of paint being used. Otherwise your statement is typical of the bullshit you like to spew.

    Most of the expense incurred in hiring people to paint your home is in fact tallied in LABOR, my fork-tongued nigger loving Leftist friend.

    The majority of niggers, aside from being mentally deficient, recoil from even mild labor. ( mental as well as physical) This is even moreso the case since modern society has produced legions of indoctrinated whites willing to do the work and pick up the tab for them.

    Apparently insulating water pipes as well as numerous other common maintenance chores are too complicated and expensive for your little black pets. As was the case in Baltimore a couple of years ago.

    Most homeowners are terrible at plumbing, electrical work, carpentry, painting.

    The problem is the Dunning Kruger effect!

  209. “Most homeowners are terrible at plumbing, electrical work, carpentry, painting.”

    Because there are so many things one doesn’t know. For example, when I broke the corner of the board, the replacement board (I was unwilling to simply repair it — the second board was cut with a minor defect as opposed to a cut in which the shop usually makes illiminating the defect — in the corner. I would send the board back and indicate that they missed their usual best performance. But as always in consulting my housemate she was fine and didn’t want the bother. Her house her cabinets — so – ok.

    Now despite the board being cut the same size, it was’t cut to the original, if even a 1/16″ offset, will make a huge difference at the end of the line. . . simple issues that experience people would avoid or could tweek based on that experience saving them time, money and effort. Meanwhile, there’s Jr’s dental work, bill’s to pay, var to keep running . . . people who don;t live on the margins a simple plumbing fixture install is not a major project because the original was built for homes in the late 60’s and they simply aren’t around anymore. Aha, simple, fix by the time you comprehend what the experienced plumber nor working at the local hardware store you you had to do to fix it . . .

    Laughing. Painting a house is easy, until you figure out there sever boardss that need replacing on the frame and in so doing that simple job, you may have created another problem even if you don’t make a mistake — rotted wood is rotted wood . . . the$150 simple fix is now $220. You do an inspection to paint the house . . . ohh termites or any number of issues, even minor ones can be real hassles, costly and time consuming. . . Laughing. As someone who lives in the margin, I am loathe to start telling people what they are able to do without knowing something about them and their cirmcumstances.

    I think you your understanding of the average home owner, perhaps even most, because usually a home owner who does the work themselves learns over time. And no offense to homeowners with skills, but most people — not so much.

    Nothing like putting that ladder against the house as one watches that gutter collapse as a train off the tracks. Simple projects are simple, until they aren’t. And speaking of marhins, i suspect that plenty of middle and upper income people know exactly what that means even in their class ranking.

Eckman and Freisen spent more than twenty years developing their conclusions. that people can take a course for a day , month or year even and think they have it right — unlikely.

    I would say the majority of homeowners easily have the ability as well as the money needed to engage in painting their own home.

    you have had to admit that there are people who could neither afford painting their house muchless for home repairs. Despite the reality that more whites own homes, even rent homes that they don’t paint or repair based on affordability and or skill, your sole response to assail black people. Who you admit now as not all but some who don’t paint their homes,

    thereby destroying your own arguments as it relates to anyone regardless of color who owns their home but cannot paint it for various reasons.

    ————–
    So instead of simply admitting that their our people who lack the finances or the skills required to paint their own homes or engage in home repair, your endgame is to make personal attacks against me, which are of course totally irrelevant to the premise or premises stated or implied in my initial response.

    ————-

    A circular position is one in which the end is the begining. In that you are the only making such a claim. Which seems to be

    all people are capable of painting and home repairs despite the fact that you have no knowledge about what said people know or have

    but its true because some people do and you say so.

    the extensions seems to be that anyone who points out that your contention isn’t accurate or at best unknown based on some very real variables that are entailed in house painting is that one is a liberal, stupid and should be treated to a host of disparaging terms. Again, having no relevance to the central question(s).

    You have repeated those claims in numerous ways, but you have not advanced beyond them to make your case —

    You further damage your assail by making arguing against claims that I don’t make, i.e. I don’t make any claims that no one is capable of doing the afformentioned. In fact, I readily admit that there are people who do paint their homes and engage in home repair, something that is not in dispute at all – despite your repeated arguments to the contrary.

    You ignore the variable about what it means to living in the margins and how that impacts people’s ability

    You bypass that circumstances play a role

    You bypass the issue of experience verses your purported common sense, which when it comes to painting and home repairs has a sizable role in anyone’s ability to accomplish even apparent simple repair tasks.
    ———————–

    Sure appropriateness is a matter decided at some level interpersonally and intrapersonally. No issues. My view is that the language is unwarranted for this conversation, as I noted your choice is your choice.
    ———————–

    I am unclear why you challenge my stamina or will to address issues. As I think I have responded thoroughly to the issues you raise with reasonable supporting rationale and have done so without taking into account character or personal trait issues. Nor have I seen the need to disparage an entire community of citizens or advocate for the denial of their rights as citizens to justify any aspect of my position(s).

    As for house painting, I have along with my housemate considered painting the house, and maybe that will occur before we part company. But appearance is the last issue on the plate of attending to the house. Laughing, we are in fact, working on cat proofing to save money for the price of rescuing cats – laugh. So excuse me, if I say, that given the priorities, the ability to tackle house painting is not in the near future as finances limited as they are intended to go elsewhere.

    I am surprised that someone of your all prescient and omnescience did not know that. New flooring, cabinet repair, and trying to figure out how to install this new one way gas line fixture which is designed for gaslines installed completely different from the one in place is irritating. And welding such a vital competent is well beyond my comfort zone, as common sense might dictate.

    ——————–

    You could have made a great forward progress had you simply contended that most people could do house painting depending on certain qualifiers. But you are so intent on making the issue about what I do or do not know, about my politics and person you wandered far afield of the central issue and the original issue.

    Which was according to the original conversation that my lack of experience in anything regarding manual labor and being a jew who never did such work impossible for me to know what others could or could not do. Thus taking a simple accurate observation into a mountain of a critique about house painting and home repair, which you and the original commenter could not support.

    —————————————-

    And I will engage in my own soothsaying here. All of which is prompted by a simple observation(s).

    1. the author was subjected to a “stop and frisk” experience, one as I recall he fully supports, unless it involves him.

    2. that if its possible for him to experience said unjust intrusion, its more than possible that such tactics have been employed against an entire population

    That perhaps one should consider based on their own experience that others might not be lying about said condition experienced on a larger scale. And in response to that possibility, the very idea of the hypocrisy caused such cognitive dissonance, that any opening for personal disparagement, in the guise of issue was engaged.

    Or it could be simply that my first observation was all there was to the subsequent refusal to admit, that neither you or the original commenter are accurate soothsayers about anyone’s ability you don’t know.

    Exactly. My father along with myself and my two brothers painted our home twice. First a three story rowhome and then a two story stick built. I also helped a friend paint his home along with his wife and son. In each instance the job was 98% done in three days. Sure, there’s some prep work involved such as scraping, sanding, caulking etc… You may also have to replace a few boards or rehang a gutter. You don’t have to be a finish carpenter or cabinetmaker to accomplish any of this. My father worked at a printing press but he was a decent handyman as well.

    In any event, I’m fairly certain our friend the Professor will continue to spread fertilizer to the contrary.

  228. Laugh . . . this was just for kicks for me some time back, but ok.

    Hmmm.

    In fact my comment was the qualifier as it did not pertain to the “all” of anyone. It’s very simple, not everyone is able to paint their own home. You are a little late with the add on of most — though I have no issues, with your admission that obviously, not every can paint their own home.

    I further indicates conditions and circumstances in which people might be prevented from said ability. , including but not limited to mental capacity, income, and other circumstances.

    Your repeated responses were based on what you could do and what others do as to painting thier homes. Having already acknowledged that people do paint their own homes, I pointed out that as many don’t and even most don’t.

    I made no excuses by way of defending people taking the matter into their own hands. I simply noted that they are not able. My comment as limited to those who are unable by definition serves as a qualifier that would not include all people. The history of the conversation minus any form of interference after the fact — indicates the history on each and every point.

    ———————

    No the goal posts remain exactly where I came in, there are variables that are barriers to painting one’s home. It certainly is not as simple as it appears or a stated. My indicating what might serve as barriers is not moving the target lines. It explains why the target lines can’t be reached.

    Throughout the conversation, you as did the original commenter went on about my own ability, integrity, religious belief, educational level, etc. – all of which were irrelevant to the matter at hand. The only one who has interjected anything about anyone being victims — is the original author of the article, the original commenter about how said people could do it themselves – in certain neighbors — a variable that also limits the the conversation or accused generalization from all people — as you have asserted. Even that would place my comments to that population of those similarly situated — thereby barring any notions that it would a generalized all.

    Furthermore in limiting the conversation when you finally got around to making the matter clear that you were talking about “black citizens”. My position was applicable without even having to note skin color. In response to some disparaging comments about blacks people as citizens — a strange idea that one should deny them rights, just because they are black. I referenced that such behavior is a violation of the Constitution — you know,

    a violation of law and order

    I then referenced at least be circumstance in which a black person without the aide of any illegal immigrants, including those of the supposed nature that the owner of the sight would like to import to replace the same black people, performed “excellent” work on the property on which this house sits. I neglected to mention that he was hired because the previous so called workers, actually failed to do what was asked despite a rather exorbitant fee, I have no idea how many of them were here illegally — but I have my suspicions.

    Furthermore I indicated that in my experience blacks ran the gammets as do whites on work ethic, though i suspect work hard. I also indicated that given my social and political disposition – conservative enough to exercise caution, usually, about others, that blacks and myself have disagreements. And despite the tactics they employ — I will endeavour to operate above board in exchanges with whomever 0 including them.

    I take it in your view that makes me wimpy – I disagree o there;s nothing wimpy about honest dealings, working to operate with some integrity — that;s hard work. I save my less than appreciate rhetoric for offline . . . indeed.
    ————————-

    But it is progress that you have moved from what blacks are and do to the qualifier of some or most. I think my point is made quite well.
    ————————-

    I was wondering whether or not I should paint using cool wall, epoxy, oil or water based paints. But then i guess it simply doesn’t matter.

    ————————

    I see that to have progressed from simple buckets of paint, brushes and a ladder to”

    “In each instance the job was 98% done in three days. Sure, there’s some prep work involved such as scraping, sanding, caulking etc… You may also have to replace a few boards or rehang a gutter.”

    Wow, this gets more complicated all the time . . .

    As I stated from the outset, what appears to be a simple job is rarely as simple once one commences to doing it. And your own progression, with a little coaxing into the details. Next you’ll be adding one, two penny nails and whether one needs 1, 2 or six inches. or given the nature of the wood it’s better to get plywood or corkboard because what you really need is out your pocket range. Oune or oak 2x’s will a four work . . . treat first with waterproofing or simply paint away trusting that said paint will do the trick . . .

    simple . . . if anyone is talking out of their hat . . .

    It certainly is not me.

    Aaah…What a surprise! The Professor is back with yet another impressive “blizzard of bullshit”.

    LOL

    One of the things I love about your type is that your massive ego always ensures that you will keep running your mouth until it has established beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are indeed a fool.

    Let’s summarize.

    Aside from perhaps the elderly and/or infirm, painting one’s home is well within the skill level and affordability of the majority of homeowners.

    Whether they choose to do so or not, is beside the point.

    Any sort of painting requires prep work, professor. Interior, exterior, automotive etc… All of it. Exterior painting generally does require more prep work, but that hardly places it beyond the scope of the average homeowner. With a modicum of research/advice and a few days work, it is easily accomplished.

    Three steps:

    #1.Preparation.

    #2. Application of paint.

    #3. Cleanup

    I understand that you’re trying mightily to make it sound like a very difficult, expensive and timely chore, but it’s really just as simple as that.

    Please stop attempting to equate it with doing electrical, plumbing, finish carpentry or HVAC. There’s a good reason why painters and drywallers command less than skilled tradesmen.

    As far as your beloved black pets are concerned. It’s common knowledge that most blacks possess neither the knowledge nor the inclination to care for their homes. Which is the very reason most black neighborhoods are shitholes.

    I’ll be eagerly anticipating your next essay. Please try make it a little longer and even more convoluted this time.

    Yours truly, Dannyboy.

  230. Laughing.

    I take it the central issues have been dropped to go back to the initial argument that all one needs is some paint, some brushes and a ladder . . .

    Laugh. No I think my comments make it clear what level of work I am talking about . . .

    attempting hide some of the specifics not to mention the unsuspected issues that always arise that might require more than sweeping a brush across a wall — having been so prompted it’s clear that your simple project is not quite as simple as first suggested.

    I am afraid you ave been done in by your own assessment

    “In each instance the job was 98% done in three days. Sure, there’s some prep work involved such as scraping, sanding, caulking etc… You may also have to replace a few boards or rehang a gutter.”

    And depending on the age of the home, the weather conditions, upkeep by previous owners white or black . . .

    You continue to make a one two and three . . .

    ohhh and there’s also . . .

    All of which might add up to being well out of reach even for middle income families, depending on where they are financially and other variables that apply to the job itself or other priorities.

    So these homes so out of joint, you know by your expert soothsaying ability — would only require a few boards . . .

    oy veh!

    Right on que, the Professor is back to make sure everyone knows that painting your home is best left to the professionals…lol

    That’s right kids, don’t try this at home.

    You may actually have to use complex tools like a scraper and a sander as well as possibly a measuring tape or even…Gasp!…A circular saw. OMG!

    Paint brushes, rollers and caulking guns can be pretty confusing too.

    If you have trouble walking and chewing gum at the same time you should probably refrain from climbing a ladder.

    Hey Professor, do everyone a big favor and go “weld your gas pipe”, preferably with the gas on.

  232. “Right on que, the Professor is back to make sure everyone knows that painting your home is best left to the professionals…lol”

    Hmmm, that would be an interesting contention if I had actually said anything even close to that.

    As my position clearly indicates there are people who are incapable of painting their homes for lack pf finances, even at discounted rates, it’s a safe bet they would be able to afford a house painter contracted or not.

    Nice try . . . ohh I see you have added a circular saw into the mix, might as well throw in a skill saw . . . for someone making case that people living in /on the margin can paint their homes, you sure are tallying up quite shopping list. A circular is sight jump from just paint brushes, paint, caulking gun, spatulas, spackling, wood, gutters, nails, . . . I am sure this simple job gets simpler with each response.

    Though if i were advising someone to paint their home and some people certainly have the ability, i would recommend a hand saw, cheaper, effective, safer and one gets a good workout.

    Keep at it . . . the devil as they say is in the details.

    Painting your own home is ALWAYS cheaper than hiring a contractor, which is exactly why people choose this option.

    Painting costs are generally broken down as follows: 85% labor, 15% materials.

    Furthermore, other than the common prep work associated with painting, any light carpentry/gutter work would require added expense or the services of yet another contractor.

    Wooosh! There goes that bit of bullshit.

    No, since we’re ripping 1×6 or 1×8 boards and not crown molding, I’ll stick with a circular saw ( which can be rented very reasonably) You feel free to use a skill saw, dipshit…lol

    Wooosh! There goes that bit of bullshit.

    i would recommend a hand saw, cheaper, effective, safer and one gets a good workout.

    Easier to make a nice square cut with a small circular saw or a chop saw than a hand saw, most especially for beginners.

    Keep at it, Professor…by all means.

  234. Laugh.

    For people who can afford a circular saw, want to learn it the skill of how use one — but adding complexity and cost as you constantly do only reinforces, my point , , ,

    —– Time for atd bit if seriousness

    1. You are attempting to change the subject and it is rejected.

    I never made an argument for hiring a contractor.

    I don’t make any arguments that everybody is incapable of painting or anything else.

    That was the incorrect assumption on your part. You continue to make that argument despite my clear and repeated acknowledgements that people paint their own houses.

    2. I make a simple argument and have supported it from several vantage points.

    3. The minute you shift from a general position about blacks for example to some or most — you grant that there are people incapable of paining there houses

    4. i specify several reasons why that might be the case.

    5. with nearly every subsequent response you support that the simplicity first advance is not at what is true in practice, again reinforcing my point.

    6. What utter nonsense on its face. Whether a novice could make a square cut easier depends on how they handle a circular saw — using nearly ant electrical tool requires learning how to do so — can people, sure will everyone , even most probably.

    At the end of the day your argument is — they because I say they can — not because you have any evidence that they don’t or do.

    Soon you’ll be adding a chain saw to remove branches and trees butted against the home.

    But I can certainly understand why you want to change the nature of the discussion.

    Not everyone has the ability to paint their homes. And that may even be most people. For those who are unable for financial reasons — it is unlikely they could afford a contractor — and a reminder, I bever advocated any such choice.

  235. Laugh.

    I stand by my hand saw for the reasons stated.

    Professional painters often aren’t professional at all. Just guys with a pick up truck who sometimes do a bad job.

  237. Dannyboy says:

    False.

    Using a circular saw is no more “complex” than using a drill. Any adult with common sense can use one safely and proficiently to make basic cuts with very little instruction. The modern variety have many safety features which make them almost idiot proof. ( In your case however, this may not apply)

    You are attempting to change the subject and it is rejected.

    False.

    You are the one who has attempted to move the goalposts and obfuscate since it became clear early on that you have ZERO experience and little or no practical knowledge on the subject.

    I never made an argument for hiring a contractor.

    You have implied numerous times that people who cannot afford to paint their own house would be able to afford hiring a contractor. This is absurd on the face of it, since I have already explained ( and you can research the question online for yourself) that the bulk of the expense involved in painting a home is in fact the cost of the labor and not materials. It is exactly the opposite of what you have been implying. People who cannot afford to hire someone or those who want to save the cost of labor involved are the ones most likely to do it themselves.

    I don’t make any arguments that everybody is incapable of painting or anything else.

    False.

    You essentially try to have it both ways, while not committing to either position. From “it’s no cheap or easy task and rarely as simple as just painting” to “sure, lots of people are perfectly capable of painting their own home”.

    This sort of sleazy vacillation reveals the unmistakable scent of the sophist bullshitter. That would be you.

    My position, on the other hand, has been the same from the beginning.

    Aside from perhaps the elderly and/or infirm, painting one’s home is well within the skill level and affordability of the majority of homeowners.

    The minute you shift from a general position about blacks for example to some or most — you grant that there are people incapable of paining there houses

    The position on blacks which both myself and anarchyst took and which started you running your mouth to make excuses for them, is that most could paint their own homes if they would put forth the effort, which includes setting aside the money to do so. Most do not care one way or the other about their property, which is why the majority of black areas are shitholes. This is exacerbated by the fact that they are constantly given freebies by either indoctrinated “do-gooder” whites, stricken with white guilt, or in most cases, the government. (other productive people’s tax money). If you subsidize vice,( in this case, sloth) you get more of it. It’s not complicated, professor.

    What utter nonsense on its face. Whether a novice could make a square cut easier depends on how they handle a circular saw

    Now see, this is where you really end up showing your ass, professor…lol And it’s priceless really.

    A circular saw has what is known as an adjustable shoe and a quadrant slide. It can be adjusted and tightened to make either precise angled cuts or perfectly square cuts. I could give you 8 or 10 1x’s to crosscut with your handsaw. I seriously doubt you could make any of them perfectly square. With a circular saw they would all be square as long as the shoe was set at 90 degrees and tight.

    You don’t really have a clue what you’re talking about, and believe me it shows.

    At the end of the day your argument is — they because I say they can — not because you have any evidence that they don’t or do.

    Soon you’ll be adding a chain saw to remove branches and trees butted against the home.

    But I can certainly understand why you want to change the nature of the discussion.

    Not everyone has the ability to paint their homes. And that may even be most people. For those who are unable for financial reasons — it is unlikely they could afford a contractor — and a reminder, I bever advocated any such choice.

    I’m afraid this is simply more of your patented twaddle and attempts at obfuscation, and not really worth responding to.

    I am not sure what part of left field you are from, but your comments are directed at the wrong person in this discussion ——

    but I do appreciate that you have added to the growing list of purchases that a simple home exterior paint project might entail

    You appear to have been duped into believing that I am advocating for professional painters or contractors — if you read through my comments — I don;t make any such arguments — never. That issue as with other irrelevant additions have all been infused from the core issue(s)

    primarily that not everyone is capable of painting their home for a myriad of reasons — that’s it. That simple projects regarding home and hearth are rarely as simple as they appear once underway.

    Able-bodied adults who have enough income to purchase a home, can certainly afford the materials needed to paint it.

    These same “poor” home owners always seem to have enough expendable income for all manner of frivolous “luxury” items and activities, yet never enough for the upkeep of their property.

    Having lived in Detroit for a great part of my life, one could always tell where the elderly white Polish people lived. Nice grass, trimmed shrubbery, flowers, nicely painted and well-maintained homes was the norm, while the blacks next door did NOTHING to maintain their own property. These elderly white people kept up their homes on their own, despite being of advanced age.

    Among the blacks, trash strewn all over, no grass because of constant trampling, no (normal) maintenance done on their homes, one could easily see the results; everyone KNEW which homes were occupied by blacks.

    In most cases, the elderly white Polish people could not afford to move because of their property being almost worthless because of the black-caused “blight” around them, they had been there for generations.

    I engaged “urban studies professors” from Detroit’s premier Wayne State University in conversation about “urban blight” and was always given the standard excuses for justifying black dysfunction and their inability to keep up their property –“the homes are old”.

    Tell that to the elderly Polish people who still keep up their homes. The argument that “the homes are old” won’t wash…

    No “new scenarios” have been introduced, professor. That is you trying to squirm your way out after your own words have betrayed you as a clueless jackass.

    It has become very evident that when you are called out on your bullshit, you squirt ink like a squid.

    I’m afraid that won’t work with me. I will dog you like the little Leftist bitch you are.

    After all, your stock in trade is to make simple/straightforward things sound very complex.

    The problem arises when you wander out of your controlled environment ( aka the “classroom”) and into a place where can people with actual experience can speak freely.

    Let’s posit three things.

    1. Painting one’s home is not at all overly complex or laborious.

    2. Using power tools proficiently and safely is not overly complex and is accomplished each and everyday by the average home owner

    3. Everyone, other than congenital bullshitters understands what the term “able bodied” means.

    and finally

    4. Aside from the fiction you posted, anyone who has ever worked with and lived around niggers understands that they are almost completely dysfunctional and why.

  246. “After all, your stock in trade is to make simple/straightforward things sound very complex.”

    If you one were to read through the matters at hand . . . the complexity has been added not by me but yourself and others as they began to explicate the details of what house painting entails.

    Laughing Oy!.

    1. The issue was first paint, ladder, and brushes . . . spackling. . . and several other odds and ends . . . to circular saws, , etc. scafolding . . . It’s been quite telling how the what was needed has expanding from a simple ladder, brushes and paint, not ignore (experience)

    2. You miss the point of able bodied by introducing the matter, you grant that some people are probably not – able bodied – thereby upending your point.

    3. You have further adjusted from every/anyone to most and in the case of blacks referenced in previous comment you make it clear at least acknowledging some — laugh — again, undermining your own case.

    4. As I make quite clear and repeatedly (reinforced by your comments and that of others) not everyone is capable of painting their own home for a myriad of reasons.

    Note: based on my comments its pretty clear that life experience is well beyond that of the classroom or I would have as you and others pulled out my chrystal ball and made a engaged the rather god like presentation stating what everyone/anyone is capable of doing, oh wait, that has been adjusted, most people, wait, “able bodied” . . .

    Leftist filth like you who live in their own little fantasyland, actually believe this sort of nonsense.

    It’s been made painfully clear that you haven’t a goddamn clue what you’re talking about, professor. Dumping more bullshit on this page will not change that fact. Quite the contrary.

  250. “I guess you were either asleep or stoned during the “housing crisis” of 2008.

    Regardless of the efforts made (by the very people who facilitated it) to hide and distort the causes, we all understand what happened and why. The fallout is ongoing.”

    laughing.

    I am just unsure how to respond to more validation that people would be incapable of painting their homes. I have no doubts about the impacts on the financial crisis. Nor do i have doubts that it left people in such dire condition, that whatever home improvement ambitions they had were terminated or placed on permanent hold.

    Though I am a tad confused here. It was my understanding that you contend that people underwater should never have been sold a home. Yet, here you seem to suggest that people in such conditions are not fault because if the behavior of others — interesting.

    I would agree that financial hardship could prevent people from painting their homes — even if that hardship was the fault of others. I think it is entirely possible for people to be taken advantage by others in the system via unfair and deliberate business malpractice.

  251. “Leftist filth like you who live in their own little fantasyland, actually believe this sort of nonsense.””

    Laughing.

    Oy Veh! Good Golly Miss Mollie! Holy tomole! Geepers! Goodness Gracious! Wow! and

    Oy! Laughing . . .

    I am probably one of the most conservative people in the country. Certainly right of Pres. Reagan — though some might say, that isn’t saying much.

    Compared to Miss Coulter and Mr. Tucker Carlson — just this side of Atilla and Ghengis.

    a. US citizens deserve a shot at all of those possibilities. And by shot I mean a fair shot based on their abilities, etc.

    b. one must come into the US legally. everyone else should be deported — yesterday. a five year moratorium should have been in place after 9/11 if not before. I think i prefer the Swiss model on immigration.

    c. if one can afford a home that should not be barred from owning a home, nor should they be swindled out of the same for any reason.

    I guess that all depends on the rationale for denying the above. One might be any of the above or maybe not — one would have to examine motives and the accompanying behavior, in my view.

  252. Ohh I see I missed a couple.

    i will grant that my typographical err on “unable” might lead you to take advantage concerning contractors. I don;’t dispute and never ave that DIy wasn’t less expensive, unless you make mistakes you can’t fix yourself. But aside from the missed “unable” — there’s no indication I encourage anyone to hire out, unless they ar able and so choose.

    “A circular saw has what is known as an adjustable shoe and a quadrant slide. It can be adjusted and tightened to make either precise angled cuts or perfectly square cuts. I could give you 8 or 10 1x’s to crosscut with your handsaw. I seriously doubt you could make any of them perfectly square. With a circular saw they would all be square as long as the shoe was set at 90 degrees and tight.”

    Wait a minute, the possible need for wood would be determined by the home inspection prior to even prepping and said inspection includes looking for rotted, damaged boards . . . but I certainly appreciate you adding more required expertise to the simple paint job.

    You don’t seem to understand, the argument as you constantly reinforce, that a simple home project is rarely simple and there are people incapable. If I were an inexperienced person listening to you or others i would have dropped home painting from my agenda days ago, if not before. laughing. i rarely have someone make my point so acutely.

    Yeah, Corvinus is a “conservative” too, as is Jonah Goldberg and Bill Kristol and Mitt Romney and John McCain and that retard Dubya and his shitbag Daddy and all the rest of the New World Order trash who’ve been running the show for the last 50 years. I believe you.

    Just a reminder there are roughly 18,000,000 (generously provided the lower number) homeowners who are unable to pay their mortgage.

    And there are approx. 79,000,000 homeowners in the US which would put the number of those (according to you) unable to pay their mortgage at roughly 22%.

    Fail…lol

    Once again…

    Aside from the elderly or infirm, painting one’s home is well within the skill level and affordability of the majority of homeowners.

    This is you trying to squirm out of the fact that you have no clue how to use a circular saw or how they actually work. I seriously doubt you’ve ever used one. I guess that’s why you’ve spent several pages trying to convince people that painting their house is a very expensive, complex and overly arduous task.

    Your “argument” ( if we can call it that) has evolved from the simple painting of a house to painting a house in complete disrepair to painting the goddamn Biltmore in complete disrepair…lol

    With every new response you further reinforce the fact that you lack actual hands-on experience in nearly every blessed thing…except perhaps fanciful bullshitting.

  255. Well,

    I think on the conservative matter — not a leftist, not even close. Your soothsating needs work — again. i am unfamiliar with any advocacy related to the commenter you are referring to that indicates he is a conservative or says so about himeself.

    You calculate to 79 million mine is based on 75 million not much of a discrepency to call the number a failure. I am sure my number was 75 million but I am not going to quibble over 2% . just know that 18 million is based on based on 24% of 75 million homes.

    But it undermines your case in either case, there are people are not able to paint their homes. As I stated from the outset that are myriad of factors that would prevent home painting — finances is just one. Ill, health, skills, and on and on . . . There are just too many times that you have had to adjust tour comments, amend crucial areas that were core to your position, actually demonstrated that house painting is not simple and how unsimple is related to a lot of factors.

    At best what you have is that most people could learn and develop the skills to paint their homes, maybe — but even that is guess work. You and your cohorts have made a lot of assumptions about people, but when considering what’s required by your standard — no. Most people are not capable of painting their homes. And if in marginal communities and the issues that living in such communities suggest, given the said conditions — unlikely.

    And that would be the case conservative or blue haired hippie.

    False.

    Most homeowners…the majority of homeowners… were my words from the beginning.

    Aside from the elderly or infirm, painting one’s home is well within the skill level and affordability of the majority of homeowners.

    I’m constantly having to repeat myself with you.

    False.

    As I’ve consistently stated, house painting is pretty simple and straightforward. A few things could complicate it, but even they are usually not beyond the scope of the average homeowner.

    At best what you have is that most people could learn and develop the skills to paint their homes, maybe — but even that is guess work.

    You must be surrounded by lazy helpless retards, professor. And you don’t even live in a majority black area, do you?

    lol

    Mine, as well as my “cohort’s” assumptions are in fact primarily based on experience, concerning both house painting as well as niggers. Yours are very obviously wanting in both areas.

    Most people are not capable of painting their homes.

    Oh Lawd! It’s a miracle!

    Glory Hallelujah!

    The Professor has actually uttered a definitive ( though still false) statement without a wagonload of shit hitched to it.

  257. I will get bak on this but for the moment. I am pre-occupied.

    It is safe to say Whoa! Nelly!. I am keenly aware of how this matter had progressed. And it the complexities has nothin g to do with building a hotel or even a home. You have repeatedly danced on tbhis issue.

    and in so doing

    a. have made it clear that a home exterior paint project will require varying degrees of supplies, money and expertise. Given the initial claims were to marginalized neighborhoods and commentary about said conditions — in very ill state as indicated by you and others — the effort will require more than a ladder, several cans of paint and some brushes .

    b. fortunately for me I have no illusions just how complex a simple home project can become. We started out to replace a floor and as consequence enhanced cabinets, wall repair, repainting, cabinet rebuild and just last night as i finished a very simple project — now in need of an over outer door.

    c. of course its cheaper, unless, you make mistakes, or missed some logistics

    d. most people don;t have those skills, the time or the money — you assume they do, but just at a glance of how this conversation has transpired — its clear that some people. and in my ,most people would be incapable of taking the matter on — even painting a home

    e. I have been generous here — i stand where I came in — but we are not talking about the average homeowner == certainly not in marginalized communities.

    f. i take you want to bypass damaged or rotted wood boards as would be located in the homes in question — in otherwords, I take you think just painting over it will suffice, that might work with cool wall — it has some interesting chemical properties — however, then we are talking about the average homeowner — laugh.

    g. No repeat yourself, because, you have created a conundrum from which there is no escape. Even i have moved from some to most based on this conversation. Laugh. In otherwords, you make progress and are stumped by the reality that a simple paint job isn’t quite so simple. good grief scaffolding . . . it would be expected for me to make add on, I admit to the complexity immediately, having actually tackled a project or two on my own. I grant that it is complex. The fact that you and others valiantly have undermined the real complexity by describing tools and what’s to be dome —
    that is icing on my proverbial cake walk . . .

    h. and your response to underwater homes and your understandable irritation about how others damaged the home fortunes and prospects of homeowners — I have never had caviar, but it sounds nice at the moment —

    Laughing and laughing ——

    I really appreciate your devotion to circular saws and the skill required to use one.

    j. No. It was everyone, anybody, most, (and in the case of blacks despite having no evidence about the black population as a whole you have stated that some are in fact capable, and now you are back where you started and that you have adjusted several times) able bodied, unless infirm, . . . have set skills (such as you) Laughing — Here’s a hint, most people don;t that level of skill and that would put downward pressure on their ability to do the very simple paint job.

    k. i have stated several definitives in this case i have moved from some to most — that’s is not a move in your favor.

    I hadn’t intended to respond as i have

    ———————————–

    I understand that you and most likely the entire audience on this forum appreciates the author. But this is a might strong diversion away a simple observation

    That blacks have made the case that the law enforcement community is arbitrary, abusive, will perjor themselves and even plant evidence . As practice noted as above to the issue of “stop and frisk” But it somehow never dawned on the author until he himself had that experience what it “stop and frisk” works.

    —————————–

    The devil is always in the details . . . of what the simple looks like transformed into the real — it is rarely as simple as it appears.

    I will get back to the conservative issue a tad later.
