- An armed society is a polite society: "Road rage regret! Angry motorist screams at another driver - but slams on his brakes when he pulls out a HANDGUN"--Daily Mail. To summarize, the angry driver gets besides the videographer's car while on the highway (both cars are in motion), and starts screaming obscenities at the videographer. The videographer gives the middle-finger to the angry driver, who then tries to goad the videographer into a fight. The videographer then pulls out a handgun and points it at the angry driver, and the angry driver apparently slams on his breaks because his car disappears from sight. While effective, I would not recommend this method of dealing with an angry driver since it could result in a charge of aggravated assault or, at the least, brandishing a deadly weapon.
- The latest Rasmussen poll shows, of today, that the two candidates tied in a poll of likely voters, but that Trump leads 49% to 47% among voters who have already decided for whom they will vote (the difference are voters who will voting for a 3rd party candidate).
- The Primary Model, which model has successfully predicted each election since 1996, and, retrospectively, accurately predicted each presidential election since 1912 (except for Kennedy's 1960 win against Nixon), is 87%-99% certain that Trump will win. Rather than relying on polls, this method analyzes how well the candidates did during the primaries.
- Professor Allen Lichtman of American University, who has correctly predicted the outcome of every presidential election since 1984, has indicted that Trump will win.
- "Trump will win the election and is more popular than Obama in 2008, AI system finds"--CNBC. This system correctly predicted the last 3 presidential elections. From the article:
MogIA was developed by Sanjiv Rai, the founder of Indian start-up Genic.ai. It takes in 20 million data points from public platforms including Google, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube in the U.S. and then analyzes the information to create predictions.
The AI system was created in 2004, so it has been getting smarter all the time. It had already correctly predicted the results of the Democrat and Republican Primaries.

- "Roosh On The Future of the K-shift"--Anonymous Conservative. Commenting on a Roosh post that we are at a point of no return, AC goes on to provide a warning to those who favor more direct action:
The one thing Roosh left out was that you should wait to do anything until amygdalae develop sufficiently and the nation is sufficiently K-ified. Those who will die quickest will be those who act early, while their localities are filled with rabbits. The key will be surviving until the nation is ready to act.
Going violent at the outset, even in self defense, will not be an optimal strategy. ...
Where this happens, we can clearly see how rabbits manipulate the entire machinery so that even Police officers see their lives ruined as they merely try to stay alive while protecting others. Even their own departmental machinery, manned by their fellow officers, is turned against them and used to treat them as a criminal. That is the entire plan, as it will play out for civilians. It is just beginning early now as rabbit instincts meet the early stages of resource restriction, and officers find themselves filling that role in the rabbit’s strategy. Notice how it appears to not be a logical strategy – grassroots rabbits actually think Police are murdering innocent blacks. That is how rabbitism infects cognition.
... Wait until it is just your average, run of the mill K-strategist conservative civilian who killed a savage on his way home from work. The destruction to his life will be total.
The key will be keeping your head down and avoiding the battle, until the entire nation is K-ified enough that everyone is motivated to band together, clean out the rabbits at the top, and begin the rebuilding.
Be inconspicuous, avoid conflict, stay away from dangerous areas, and know that the savages will be killing the low-level, grassroots rabbits at a far faster rate than the K-strategists. Also know that those intrepid souls who jump into the battle early will not last long. Be patient.
Sit by the river long enough, and enough dead rabbit bodies will float by that the nation can begin rebuilding.
- "Oregon case jury delivers blow to government in lands fight"--AP. "The Portland jury acquitted Bundy, his brother Ryan Bundy and five others of conspiring to impede federal workers from their jobs at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, 300 miles southeast of Portland. The jury could not reach a verdict on a single count of theft for Ryan Bundy." However, when Bundy's attorney got a little too excited for calling for his client's immediate release from custody, and raised his arms in the air, he was tasered by U.S. Marshals.

- "Scientists say weird signals from space are ‘probably’ aliens"--NY Post. From the article:
The study, which appeared in the Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, analyzed the odd beams of light from 234 stars — a fraction of the 2.5 million that were observed.
The bizarre beacons led the paper’s authors, Ermanno F. Borra and Eric Trottier from Laval University in Quebec, to conclude that it’s “probably” aliens.
The authors believe that the odds for a naturalistic explanation is low:
“Although unlikely,” the study notes “there is also a possibility that the signals are due to highly peculiar chemical compositions in a small fraction of galactic halo stars.”
- A must read article: "Great Chain of Contempt: Intellectuals left and right have lost faith—and mercy."--F.H. Buckley at The American Conservative. The author discusses the social stratification of American society under modern progressives (both of the left and right), and observes that America now consists of two societies--the elite (who he terms "the Big Brains") and those who are not ("the Little Brains")--that, to quote Disraeli, "between whom there is no intercourse and no sympathy; who are as ignorant of each other’s habits, thoughts, and feelings, as if they were dwellers in different zones, or inhabitants of different planets; who are formed by a different breeding, are fed by a different food, are ordered by different manners, and are not governed by the same laws."
One of the points I have a problem with in regard to many of these "elites v. commoners" articles is the tacit assumption or acceptance that the elite are, in fact, superior. We are, for the large part, no longer a nation of an intellectual elite whose position is due to merit--philosopher kings, if you will--ruling over "the great unwashed masses." There is plenty of evidence to indicate that not everyone admitted to Yale or Harvard are extraordinary, nor is it true that all (or even many) of those attending so-called "lesser institutions" (or pursuing other career paths) are mediocre. Rather, in most cases, the elites are mediocre men and women with patently obsolete or stupid ideas, lecturing to those that are their equals or their superiors when it comes to intelligence, education, or ability. The laws of science, mathematics, economics, and so on, do not change merely because they are delivered from a lectern at a state university instead of one at Harvard or Yale. The elites have no special monopoly on intelligence, education, understanding or ability, and we shouldn't pretend otherwise.
