    “Eyeing Pluto” —– Good one Ben, another great 8 as usual.

    Random Saturday Thought:

    After following a heuristic based, train of thought in Collateral deaths fighting Radical Islam, a strange question came up: Is Radical Islam accelerating development of Single Target Autonomous Robot Mission Assassination Neutralization or STARMAN Musing Project type robots?

    These “killerbots” will do the work, our current drones do, only they will seek out a single target, becoming a soulless demon of execution. These robots will have incredible capabilities, such as regenerating liquid armor, stealth capabilities, advanced sensors, battlefield, infiltration, tactical programming and very precise energy based weapons systems, “hit a moving tennis ball at 2 miles good”. Water, ground and Air mission capabilities, combined with high durability chassis of Titanium blends and advanced crystal structure polymers, possible molecular level “combined” exotic materials construction of only guessed at specification. These robots will be extremely tuff, difficult to stop, impervious to small arms fire and maybe small rockets.

    All because of collateral deaths? The history of modern war demonstrates and supports reduction of collateral deaths, accelerating the development of these robots. I don’t think semi-autonomous extremely tuff, Terminator style drone strikes will make anyone any happier, esp. if one becomes damaged or hacked and buzzes thru a few medium towns, ripping everyone into pieces,
    till its stopped-who is going to want to clean up that mess?

      Freedom, I hope those who would do harm to our nation learn to fear a red eyed demon in the night! With just what we have now they have stopped using their cell phones for fear of being “tracked” and hit by something they never see or hear! We must learn to kill fewer children until we hopefully reach a point where we kill no children. It may be just a dream but it can never happen if we stop the dream!

    I noticed the ‘Disqus’ note above and that Disqus, and social media sites, will be the only way to comment after Nov. 4. I signed up for Disqus a long time ago, but noticed almost immediately that most of my comments would be published, but within a few minutes would disappear. [censored?] Then, whenever I attempted to access Disqus, or the social network sites that then require you to list Disqus, all I get is “Diagnose connection problems”. Diagnosing the problem brings back there “is no problem”. Attempting to go directly to the Disqus website ‘login’ also blocks me from the system. I have to wonder whether Disqus is merely a monitoring system to prevent significant ‘revelations’ from being put into the comment sections of supposedly “liberty promoting, conservative” websites.

    • trugrits

      Most of my posts do not even go through. Censorship anybody? Just when I wished I was for once left off a list I get chosen.
      If you can’t shut the conservative sites down then the libtards censor them.

      • Karolyn

        The only censorship that exists is that conducted by the list owner/moderator. Contact Bob Livingston. He is most accommodating. You can bet if what you are saying is true, Bob would not be using Disqus. Either that or your posts are so profane and break the rules that they really are censored.

    • independent thinker

      “… all I get is “Diagnose connection problems”. Diagnosing the problem brings back there “is no problem”.”
      I was having similar problems then my computer went belly up and I had to get a new one.
      As far as posting here, I had a few problems when PLD first started using Discus but after that everything is just fine.

        It is not surprising that the health act has a difficult time. If you are working on a national project, and don’t know until the last minute if it will be cancelled or defunded, and then discover that half of the state administrstions are refusing to cooperate and some are trying to sabotage it, you would expect trouble and delay.

    • Vis Fac

      Discus is a liberal moderated conglomerate using many hosting server sites On one such site I have been banned (IP address) Being tech savvy I can get around these impedances so I still post when I want. That’s fine but there are (socialist) moderators who peruse these threads and have the power to remove comment. Soon the government will have their goons in the fray and then we’ll revert to passing notes like Bin Laden (now who’s the terrorists??)

If there was any kind of censorship, other than Bob Livingston, I would imagine this site wouldn’t even exist.

    Hopefully the Tax Payers do not have to pay for the computer errors commited by companies that had no idea what they were doing. They had years to prepare the programs and failed. Now they will probably need more millions for the repairs. Just another reason Government should not be involved in any business (free enterprise) venture. It has always been a lose, lose result for the Tax Payers. Over $500,000,000.00 spent for the start up with more money to follow for the corrections. The companies that organized and incorrectly programed a failed system get paid for their failures…. Who is responsible for authorizing the system and payments? MORE GOVERNMENT WASTE!!!!!

          If we encouraged the private sector to expand, there would be plenty of money to pay for social programs, opportunities would open up for everyone not just specified people and tax revenues would increase.

If this soars over your head you’ve completely brainwashed and are indeed a Socialist pawn.

            They said there would never be another world war after the first yet WWII occurred They said a man would never set foot on the moon yet this to came to pass

            Hoping the wolf wont eat you is like you hiding in the closet hoping you’ll stay out of sight and be passed by

            The fact that you have yet to experience being eaten does not mean it can’t or won’t. By the virtue of it happening to others should alarm you because it could happen to you By your apathy saying it’s OK for others to be eaten allows the same to happen to you I have yet to be eaten but I’ll be damned if I’ll give them the chance.

        AND THE SCREAMING MATCH STARTS.

        THERE HAS BEEN NO “FREE ENTERPRISE”, IN THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM, FOR DECADES. THE MASSIVE REGULATIONS FOISTED ON THE MEDICAL PROFESSION HAS MADE PRIVATE PRACTICE VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO MAINTAIN, WITH ANY PROFIT. THIS HAS FORCED MOST ALL DOCTORS INTO A CORPORATE SITUATION. THESE CORPORATIONS ARE FAVORED BY THE GOVERNMENT. SINCE THE CORPORATIONS HAVE A FORM OF MONOPOLY (CARTEL) THEY CAN SET THE PRICES WHERE THEY WANT THEM, INSTEAD OF HAVING COMPETITION REGULATE THE COST. IF YOU WANT THE PRICES TO COME DOWN, YOU NEED TO ELIMINATE ALL OF THE UNNECESSARY GOVERNMENT INTERFERENCE IN THE HEALTH CARE MARKET. EVEN MEDICARE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR HIGHER HEALTH CARE COSTS. THIS IS BECAUSE, THE GOVERNMENT ARTIFICIALLY LOWERS THE AMOUNT THAT DOCTORS AND HOSPITALS GET PAID FOR SERVICES. THAT RESULTS IN THEM CHARGING THE REST HIGHER PRICES. HEALTH CARE INSURANCE IS ANOTHER PLAYER IN RAISING COST. THEY HELP TO ELIMINATE COMPETITION OF SUPPLIERS TO THEIR CONSUMERS. IF THE CONSUMER CAN’T NEGOTIATE FEES ON HIS/HER OWN BEHALF THEN THERE IS NO FREE MARKET PRESSURE TO KEEP COSTS DOWN. SINCE HEALTH INSURANCE HELPS INFLATE THE COST OF HEALTH CARE, FORCING EVERYONE TO PARTICIPATE IN THEIR USAGE WILL AGGRAVATE THE PROBLEM. INSURANCE IS ALSO A CARTEL (MONOPOLY) AND IS FAVORED BY THE GOVERNMENT, OVER INDIVIDUAL CONSUMER INFLUENCE.

        FORCING EVERYONE TO PAY MORE FOR HEALTH INSURANCE, WHICH WILL RAISE THE COST OF CARE, WILL NOT HELP THE MAJORITY OF THE CITIZENS GET BETTER OR MORE AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE. IT MIGHT HELP HIGH RISK PARTICIPANTS PAY LESS BUT THE OVERALL BENEFIT TO COST RATIO IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.

      Palin16… No one wants to pay more taxes, it is too unrealistic to assume anyone does. But there are many who believe there are times when it is necessary such as George H Bush in his one-only term as president and after his “Read my lips” campaign promise not to.. When the economy needs a raise in taxes or when a temporary tax break should expire is probably a good time to consider raising taxes or bringing them back to their rightful levels. Which side do you think fights those realistic needs more?

      • Palin16

        I would call for doing away with all politician’s luxuries first. They don’t need to be chauffeured around in limos and given credit card expense accounts to wine and dine with their favorite lobbiests. Harry’s been around long enough to know you need two-thirds of congress to raise taxes. Ain’t gonna happen.

    Ever see a socialist/communist democrat ever pay their fair amount that they want the citizens are required to pay. The marxist muslim puke does not go on his NOCARE snafu, and then doesn’t require Wall Street Rump rangers of Democrats, or unions or Congressional have to abide under the passed laws. Just another fact about the MO of Democrats all the time, elitist socialists who love dictators and total government control of everyone and everything.

      RR The socialistic elite have been using these clowns as pawns to push their agenda of ruining America. These “pawns” have been hoodwinked into believing toy will receive a share of the pie. With socialism someone is doing to receive something buy unfortunately that someone will not be them!!!

      To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the wolf, hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

      You don’t have to be a Marine to make a difference the only requirement is being truly patriotic and the willingness to back it up!!!

      ridge runner… we also know that there are so many Right Wing
      Conservatives, especially the wealthy kind, who pay experts to help
      them avoid paying taxes as much as possible. It happens on all
      sides. Just ask Mitt Romney.

    52% Worry Government Won’t Do Enough for Economy; 62% Want Cuts

    Thursday, October 24, 2013

    Following the short-term deal to end the partial government shutdown, voters are more concerned than ever that the federal government will not do enough responding to the weak economy. But most continue to believe spending cuts are the best move the government can make.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters now say they are more worried that the government won’t do enough in reacting to the country’s current economic problems, while 37% worry more that it will do too much. Eleven percent (11%) are undecided

    The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on October 18-19, 2013 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence

      Hi Bob666… Hows it going?

    • http://www.thefreedomtrainusa.com/ FreedomTrainUSA

      I have experience working with and writing poll questions….Most all polls… the questions are written to get a PRE-SET RESPONSE….The OUTCOME is already determined and then the questions are written so as to get the responses to prove the PRE-SET OUTCOME….This outcome is then used to push an agenda…using the PRE-SET RESPONSES as though the show what people really believe…….OF WHICH IS NOT THE TRUTH

      I have set up 2 nearly identical polls…and by just changing the questions slighly….I proven that you can get completely opposite results…This shows that how a question is phrased….determines how the same people will answer it in a different way..

    In the minds of those who choose to believe whatever their side tells
    them to believe. We have this article from our resident comedian who
    writes and speaks primarily for his comedy.

    Then we have the below from the Left so who is telling the truth? Time
    will tell:

    GOP Rep Freaks Out when Confronted with Proof of ACA Success

    Amazingly this exchange took place on CNN where Steve Beshear Governor of Kentucky explained that for states who choose to implement their own
    exchanges – as was intended by the Affordable Care Act – there “Glitches” have been few and far between.

    We’re signing up people at roughly a thousand a day. It’s a great rate and a great success so far,” he told on CNN’s “New Day,” describing the market as
    “a gold standard because it’s working.”…

    [The Federal System] will be working fully in a month or two. History
    shows us that [after the implication of Medicare] it took two years
    to get it all working properly. This will all work.

    Later the CNN Hosts talks to Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC), to get their usual
    “other side” ot the “both sides” view – only to have her attempt to completely contradict and dismiss everything that Gov. Beshear had just said.

    Only something interesting happened, the CNN Host wasn’t having
    it.

    During the discuss Rep. Ellmers endorsing the Republicans American
    Healthcare Reform Actwhich it seems is largely just another big Tort Reform Bill that would remove the Ban on Pre-Existing Conditions, would remove the ability to keep your children on your healthcare until they’re 26 – (although
    it would provide a Fund for the poor to purchase these seperately)
    it would take away “Obama Regulators” – which in short, would remove all the protections, minimum coverage requirements and life-time caps – and put “Decisions in the hands the Consumers”. And of course, no more Exchanges
    where cost can be amortized across are large pool of applicants.

    There you have it. Typical Tea Bagging. When confronted with Facts
    that contradict their delusions they try to Huff and Puff and
    Blow Your Reality Down!.

    Except sometimes, it just doesn’t work – because some of us aren’t living in
    the BullShit-Based World.

      Have you tried signing up, mac?

      • macgyver1948

        WTS/JAY… I don not need to so far. I have Medicare and a good supplement unless that gets weakened by the damning “Political Compromise” soon.

        I have talked with a number of people in different states who say they have and they say ObamaCare is easy and affordable.

          Pure BS!

          • macgyver1948

            So are you Palin16, so are you. If you are calling me a lair then why should I believe anything you say? I do not need you to believe me. Just believe what the Tea wants of you and live in your happy delusions.

            You beat me to that one…PURE BULLS**T…
            All these things work fine….ONLY IN THE BRAIN DEAD LIBERALS MINDS….even when the REAL FACTS SHOW A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PICTURE….

  • Palin16

    The Hildebeast was heckled in Buffalo, NY this week by a protester who chanted “Benghazi, Benghazi! you let them die!” Let’s keep the heckling up all through 2016, never let the Cankles Hag forget.

    • macgyver1948

      Palin16… No one “let them die” there from here. All in the imagination and being told to by those who hate.

      • Palin16

        Obummer told them stand down and then went back to bed before flying out to Vegas for a fundraiser. And then the Hildebeast made up a ridiculous story about a YouTube video, unaware that only 15% of Libyans have Internet access, and only dial up at that. We will never let Cankles forget!

        • macgyver1948

          Palin16… Obama was acting on his Intel “at the time”. What do you expect anyone here to do? But you have to respond to what you are told by the side you choose to believe so I understand that.

          • http://www.thefreedomtrainusa.com/ FreedomTrainUSA

            The “Little Boy Dictator” was acting on his “I want to Destroy America” intel straight from his Marixist Socialist Muzzie Narrcissistic Brain…

  • Chuckb

    Palin 16, Yes Barry did exactly what you say. His concern was the Campaign trip tp Las Vegas, that was far more important, You have to realize, this guy, has no other concerns than being President, he is clueless to the security of the country.or the operation thereof we have a Wizard of Oz as president.

    Both he and Hillary should be held accountable for the sacrifice of the four people in Benghazi.

    We shouldn’t let up on calling for justice, both these people should be in jail,
