Haven't seen it for a while, but I think Slave's hair is well-regulated.

A bulletin from the on-going struggle against anti-Semitism.

Re: We are all Slave now.

In respect to Trane, who've Ive never met in person, yet a poster I respect immensely, copying and pasting here:

Quote:
Coltrane "Routine handgun injuries leave entry and exit wounds and linear tracks through the victim’s body that are roughly the size of the bullet. If the bullet does not directly hit something crucial like the heart or the aorta, and the victim does not bleed to death before being transported to our care at the trauma center, chances are that we can save him. The bullets fired by an AR-15 are different: They travel at a higher velocity and are far more lethal than routine bullets fired from a handgun. The damage they cause is a function of the energy they impart as they pass through the body. A typical AR-15 bullet leaves the barrel traveling almost three times faster than—and imparting more than three times the energy of—a typical 9mm bullet from a handgun. An AR-15 rifle outfitted with a magazine with 50 rounds allows many more lethal bullets to be delivered quickly without reloading."

With an AR-15, the shooter does not have to be particularly accurate. The victim does not have to be unlucky. If a victim takes a direct hit to the liver from an AR-15, the damage is far graver than that of a simple handgun-shot injury. Handgun injuries to the liver are generally survivable unless the bullet hits the main blood supply to the liver. An AR-15 bullet wound to the middle of the liver would cause so much bleeding that the patient would likely never make it to the trauma center to receive our care."
Any shooter, every shooter, will tell you this is a lie. Having friends wounded by a .22 in a mugging, friends killed by a .45, and personally knowing the Amerlite rifle well, this is total BS. Physics, dude. Small, fast bullet.

But hey - let's promote shotguns - not as scary-lookin' as those mean AR-15s, and far less dangerous. Ish.

A .22 will kill most effectively if you shoot someone in the head (rattles around). But in terms of shots to the body, it’s nowhere near an AR-15.

Nobody needs an assault rifle. But still, I agree, a sane person who wants one has a technical right to it. The issue isn’t which gun kills most effectively. It’s why not have reasonable background checks? It’s only sensible, and it’s constitutional. If the right to bear arms isn’t one of degree, subject to reasonable constraint, any paranoid billionaire could own tactical nukes.

I personally don’t get why anyone needs assault weapons. However, if you want them, is it unreasonable for us to ask you prove you’re not crazy prior to acquisition? I know it’s apples and oranges, but if we make folks jump thru hoops for weed, and tell them they shan’t take psychedelics, it seems we can tell them they have to prove they’re not cuckoo pants before we allow them to obtain something that can quickly kill a room full of people.

I'd suggest seeing your doctor about a Viagra prescription. It will be more effective at dealing with your problem.

Sign of a Top

I think pronouncements like this are sign that exactly the opposite of what's stated is soon to follow: https://www.project-syndicate.org/co...-haass-2018-03

All of this discussion of nationalism on the rise, Putin's winning streak, the trade squabble with China, ignores the fact that markets, tech connections, and trade continue to strengthen international ties.

I hear this hysterical stuff on CNN and from Morning Joe about how the world is splintering. But what's the economic case for that argument? Am I missing something? Looks to me like Trump is picking issues and fights of little consequence so that he may appear to be a nationalist to his base while allowing free trade to roll along unfettered.

Slave says that blowing a .337 has the same effect as blowing a .03 or a .45.

Re: We are all Slave now.

Huge win at the Federal Circuit for Oracle over Google. Not my area of the law, but this always seemed like the intuitively right result to me. That said, I know a lot of people disagree.
