Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region Regional Message Board
On the M16 (Vietnam era) point - it lacked stopping power (being a relatively low calibre weapon) and it tended to jam - partly because the idea got around that one did not need to clean the rifle (there is no rifle ever made that one does not need to clean) partly because the wrong propellant was used for it.
One weird theory was that it was better to wound than to kill (hence the smaller calibre round 556 not 762) as several enemies would be kept busy caring for a wounded man - as if Communist armies care about wounded men (who ever thought up the wound theory knew little about Marxists)
The M14 (the American alternative to the American M16) had its own problems - most Western armies went for the FN FAL (the favourite for many people), or the G3, but neither of these were American - so politics dictated it had to be either the M14 or the M16.
As for the current discussion.....
Sadly modern "liberals" are more like Frankfurt School Reds - their "tolerance" is a cover for radical intolerance (indeed for totalitarianism).
It is depressing - as is the fact that some the anti Frankfurt School people often tend to be nasty also.
The Black Flag people are no better than the Red Flag ones.
The "enemy of my enemy" is NOT automatically a friend.
I carried an M14 as topside rover aboard our ship for my first year in the Navy. Those thing were incredibly heavy, but I did like the fact that they fired the 7.62X51mm round. However, i don't think there was a single complaint when we finally transitioned to the M16A3 (only 30-something years after the rest of the military).
Just a heads up, if anyone saw the message from The Decentralized Bank of The Southern Border before I suppressed it, I really hope you did not click that link. It put my firewall and anti-virus software through a live fire exercise.
Complaints have been made. Hopefully the NS Gods will cast the fatherless child out.
Greetings Campers! Sorry about the delay in getting a new poll up. That whole working and driving thing is getting to be such a bore.
In the previous poll we got an even split between supporting the protesters and supporting neither. There was one vote out of eleven for supporting the teacher. Interesting results. I am very curious about that feels this is something more then an assault on free speech.
This week's poll comes from more and more frequent use of eminent domain by government to take land for purposes other then building infrastructure. We have the story of Andy and Ceil Barrie. They "bought a little slice of heaven" in Summit County, CO. The property is surrounded by national park land.
The Forrest Service claims that ATVs are bad for the environment. But the Barries never left the well established trail. Reading between the lines, it appears there is some collusion going on between the county and the US Forest Service to take the land from from the Barries under the excuse they used an ATV to get to it. (The property is not accessible by conventional vehicles.)
As this particular story unfolds, the Barries are jumping through legal hoops. But it appears it is nothing more then going through the motions. The county is simply going to take their land from them. More then likely the county will then swap that land for some land closer to town that can be developed.
So what do you think? Is this simple legalized robbery? Is it good for the environment so it must be done? None of the above?
The poll opens as soon as I can make it.
Of course switching to the M16 30 years after the rest of the military meant you were spared the bugs Carolina V.
The FN FAL is lighter than the M14 - and packs just as big a punch..
The government (especially the Federal government) is totally out of control.
And it starts small - such as "we need to build a road" (why not a private turn pike trust? and why not a bend in the road if someone will not sell?). Then it goes on and on - worse and worse.
Leave aside principles (such as that the Federal government may only own a ten mile square area for the capital - plus such "needful buildings" and so on that are needed for national defence) and you end up with horrors - such as the Federal government claiming to own more than 80% of Nevada (and using the EPA and so on to persecute people on what little private land is left).
You should take part in this new craze called "quit your job and let the government support you." The only requirement is that you vote Democrat.
All of that may happen for me at the end of the year. Except that part about voting Democrat. That ain't going to happen.
What exactly is bytecoin?
