frankie - it works against *us* but not against the c.i./neo-nazidiot
types who would very much like to take over the movement...the more that
they can discredit the mainstream Constitutional Militias, the more they
will utilize their recruiting tactic of pulling people into their camps by
telling them ' oh come on, there isn't that much difference'...it hasn't
worked that well for them so far, but that is one of the primary reasons
some of us are pushing so hard to get the last of the racist elements out
of the movement...only when we can have an absolutely clear delineation
will their lies be neutralized.

y'know Tom, I'm sure this has been pointed out before, but if you avoided
taking gratuitous swipes at peoples' spirituality, you might find it a bit
easier to work with people...just a thought....

It works like this:

There are natural, Divinely granted Rights to Life and Liberty.  Since
Rights must always be defended against those evil persons who would usurp
them, it is inherent upon us to make an adiquate defense.  The tools of
our defense are, therefore, both our right and our responsibility.

simple enough, really.

Hi Bryan,

Good Morning Michael,

What you've just cited (not just RKBA) but the whole issue of unalienable
rights, is probably one of the core differences in philosophical belief
between the militias, as represented in this discussion by Robert and
Richard, and the statists, as represented by you.  The problem here, is
that I don't think the term 'right' has the same meaning on both sides of
the coin.  To us,  a 'natural (or inalienable)  right' is something which
is inherent in the individual and may not be curtailed by anyone, other
than that individual.  Any external element attempting to *force* such
curtailment is inherently hostile and attempting to exert a false
authority.  Such rights are considered by us to be absolute.

Now my perception of your use of the word 'right' is probably closer to
what I would define as a social privilege - something which a group
*allows* an individual to do as a member of that group.  Is that an
accurate assessment of your position?  If so, do you see any possible
means of peaceful coexistance between two groups of people with such
radically different views on this issue?

indeed.  whoever is actively attempting to force open confrontation
between the fedgov and the militias will be given an almost irresistable
target by the Olympics.  Since whoever they are discovered that their OKC
idiocy didn't work out as planned, I'd expect them to try something even
more spectacular this time around.

see, now this is where your unreasoned paranoia creeps in.  I'm sure your
therapist has talked to you about this.  The real reason that the Olympics
will make a tempting target to these folks has nothing to do with abstract
symbolism, but with media reality - the media from most of the participant
nations will be on site, and coverage of any such attack will almost
certainly be a world-wide media event.  Whoever the morons are who wish to
force open confrontation between us and the fedgov, we can be sure that
they want to maximize the political pressure that their actions will
generate, and this would be the most efficient way for them to do so. 
It's just that simple.

uh, in case you hadn't noticed, frankie, we Libertarians tend to be in the

uh, well, there you're stuck in that two dimensional matrix again, which

free market capitalists, anti-big government, with an emphasis on
individual rights and responsibilities.  As such we are not *ever* welcome

okay, I think I'm beginning to see.  First off, as a certified firearms
instructor, I'd like to commend you for seeking training.  (and since I do
my instructing as a volunteer for a non-profit organization, I don't think
I can be accused of trying to drum up business with that comment :-)) 
Now, just taking handguns as an example, we do two different basic
courses:  The first, Basic Pistol, is a course on safe effective use of a
handgun in a range situation.  The other course is called Personal
Protection, it too is a course on safe and effective handling, but with
additional training on self-defense tactics, as well as on the legal
requirements for use of deadly force in self-defense situations.

Obviously, the second course is somewhat longer, but even more than that,
I'd say that the primary difference is one of attitude.  By that I don't
mean the pseudo-John-Wayne "well pilgrim..." sort of thing...if somebody
shows up exhibiting signs of an overdose of macho, he (it's almost always
guys that have this problem) most likely will not make it through the
course.  Rather, there is a significant difference in mindset between
going to the range and punching holes in paper (or for that matter going
hunting) and that required to successfully defend one's self.  

Entire books have been written on the psychology of self-defense, but if I
had to generalize, I'd say that it boils down to one decision.  That
decision might be characterized by being able to answer the question: "Am
I willing to do *whatever it takes* to survive an encounter with someone
threatening my life and/or the lives of my family?"  This is a choice one
makes, or at least should make, at some point *prior* to a potentially
lethal encounter.  Of interest to me are the number of folks who show up
for class never even having considered this possibility...it would seem
that there are large segments of our society in which the concept of
self-defense is per se a forbidden topic.  I don't know if that's true or
not, just an observation.  In any case the bottom line is that a person
must decide whether, if all else fails, they are willing to take a human
life in order to preserve their own safety.

Certainly there are people who simply are not capable of such an action,
and many more who choose not to do so either because of ethical dillemas,
or  because they do not wish to accept responsibility for the potential
results of such an action.  None the less, there are also many people who
can, and do choose to consider the use of lethal force as an option.  For
those of us who fall in the latter category the consideration no longer
revolves around attempting to make it illegal to own certain types of
firearms, since in reality we have no real control over how an attacker
might be armed,  but rather to insure that, no matter *what* an attacker
might be armed with, we are trained, prepared, and have the tools at hand
to stop them.

Hi Michael,

 I need to be clear, from the beginning, that I am going to be addressing
these issues from a libertarian perspective.  Because of this, the views
expressed here will be somewhat different from the mainstream
Constitutionalists, conservative Christians, and other parts of the
movement.  Secondly, I feel that I need to reassure you that I am not
being intentionally dense with my questions.  Rather, I am trying to move
toward addressing some of the first causes of the conflict in which we
find ourselves.  In doing so, it seems that we are often using words which
do not hold the same meaning for both of us.  Therefore, in order to
accurately comprehend our respective positions I find it neccessary both
to define some terms as I understand them, and ask for further explanation
of your interpretation as well.

In article <833699006$14272@atype.com>, mhollomo@ix.netcom.com (Michael

Hmm, from a libertarian perspective, the development of social groups is
not inherently evolutionary.  Rather, legitimate groups arise out of the
conscious choices of the members, based on enlightened self-interest. 
[enlightened self-interest might be characterized as the libertarian
equivalent of the 'Golden Rule']  Illegitimate groups may arise through
the coercion (conquest, tyrannical legal structures, etc) but in so far as
these groups are not entirely voluntary and do not fulfill the
requirements for a valid contract (freely chosen, exchange of value,
limited duration, terms enforcable on all contracting parties) they are
not legitimate and derive their structure and content solely from
illegitimate (offensive/agressive) use of mental, emotional, and/or
physical coercion.  And yes, by that definition, most civilizations have
historically been illegitimate social groups.

Now it appears that you consider the development of social groups, and on
a larger scale, the long term development of civilizations to be an
evolutionary process - is that an accurate deduction on my part?  Also, if
that *is* your position, do you differentiate between legitimate and
illegitimate groups/civilizations?  if so, how?

Okay, 'inherent' works just as well for me.  I was simply using
'inalienable' as a bridge from the previous posts on the topic.  (FYI:
Jefferson and Adams had a major argument over the  'in' vs 'un' prefix, at
the time the Declaration was written. :-))

agreed.

Is your perception then, that all social groups are inherently unnatural? 
If there are both natural *and* unnatural social groups, what would
differentiate between the two?

This would appear to imply that existance in a natural state is of less
inherent value than existance within a social group; or am I reading
something into this?

>we understand that civilized living has much to offer. 

certainly legitimate social groups have much to offer.  Even illegitimate
social groups may benefit those whose use of coercion causes the group to
be formed or maintained; but in the latter case, can the majority of the
members honestly be said to derive sufficient benefit?

What then is a just law?  In libertarian terms, a just law would be the
enforcement criteria of a valid contract.  As such, unless the contract
was legitimate (see above) any attempt at enforcement would not be
legitimate either.   I guess I need to know how you would define the
difference between legitimate (just) and illegitimate (unjust) laws.  In
your estimation, from what basis do laws derive their just authority?

This would seem to imply that all civilizations, as you see them, are
inherently coercive.  Is that an accurate restatement of your position?

Is there then, in your view of civilization, any means whereby such one
social group could simply choose to leave another alone?  In your view, is
civilization inherently hegemonic (not sure if that's a word, but it fits)
in nature?

and most critcally: have we managed to put the entire rest of the
newsgroup to sleep with our debate? :-)

actually, it's relatively stable...shock absorbers and reinforcement like

Hi Steve,

well, let's see, most of the pacifists who were here at the time of the
American Revolution were of a religious nature.  Quakers, were probably
the largest group, although I understand that both the Baptists and the
Calvinists have, at various times, included those who held that they could
not support the use of violence...now certainly these people stood up for
their rights; although at least in the case of the Quakers, they would
stand up and die for their right *not* to violate their religious beliefs.

Hi Michael,

>Um, so how do you explain Japan's phenominal technological and
>economic advances over the past 50 years?  

hmm, well first off, Japan is an intensely mono-cultural society, with an
orientation based on the group, rather than the individual, in other
words, it is in many many ways the polar opposite of the multicultural
individualist society we have here in the U.S.  This makes direct
comparisons between the two rather difficult to quantify.  Further, as we
can see from other mono-cultural societies, it is much easier, when
everyone is operating on the same baseline ethics, goals, and philosophy,
to achieve agreement on the issues.  Because of this, monocultural
societys tend to have less internal conflict - obviously the overall crime
rate in Japan is a fraction of what it is in the United States.  This, in
turn, over time, leads citizens of such societies to have less concern for
their personal safety - they can, to a certain extent, relax and drop
their guard a bit.  None of these things are true in modern American
society...oh, and by the way, if one looks closely, one will see that in
many ways Japan is a totallitarian state...just one in which such laws are
accepted, rather than resisted, by a majority of the populace.

>Your theory also seems to
>be contradicted by several nations today where gun control is the
>order of the day (England, Canada, Germany...)

Again, England and Germany, up until the *very* recent past (say last
10-15 years) have been largely monocultural societies, and as I noted
above, reflect a vastly different set of circumstances than the U.S.  In
addition, if one questions the belief that relaxing individual vigilance
inevitably results in totalitarian government, one need only look to Great
Britain's most recent anti-terrorism legislation to see the further
errosion of civil rights in that country.  Canada too has been a largely
mono (as in Western European based) or perhaps more accurately bi-cultural
society, thus not meeting the criteria for comparison with the U.S. 
Further, up until about 10 years ago, their gun control laws were not much
different from ours...thus we can't really see much of where the changes
will take them yet...although my understanding is that there is a
resistance movement forming in that country as well.

Hi Joyce,

just to stay off topic for a second :-)
the reason it didn't work in CA was because you can't try to do what they
did - just come in and give the teachers a short course on WL, and then
say 'go do it'...WL requires a LOT of specialized training and practice to
be done effectively.  Oh, and when it IS done effectively it also
*includes* a phonics component.  If you want, we can continue this in

mark, I was studying military history while you were still in
diapers...different interpretations of historical events are simply that. 
If you go through your career expecting to develop the 'one true course of
history' you are going to be sadly disappointed.

Chris, try looking up 'regulated' in the unabridged OED - you'll find that
one of the other usages for the term *was* (now archaic) 'trained', as
opposed to 'controled'.

Chris,
If militia members are prepared to defend themselves against usurpatious
government authority *acting under color of the law* then that would by
definition be neither treasonous, nor criminal, now would it?

Hi Mike,

for those of us who value our spirituality very deeply it would be
intensely degrading to both ourselves and our cause were we *not* to
include our  relationship with The Supreme Being in our considerations.

hmm, in the strict sense that terrorism would, in marxist terms, be a
"crime against the people", I could see why you might say this...none the
less the unabomber's anti-technology rants were no more than extensions of
the twisted logic found in such books as algore's 'earth in the balance'. 
To the extent, then, that the unabomber's philosophy appears to have
developed directly out of the radical environmental movement, which is
certainly neither conservative nor libertarian in nature, he is at best a
deranged liberal.

Uh, I realize history isn't your forte, hub*r, (and certainly with the
common fate of supremacist attempts at controling modern democracies I can
see why you'd avoid it), none the less, the book in question is simply a
reflection of the antifascist reaction to nazi germany at the beginning of
WWII.  What you've simply got to realize is that your problem isn't with

precisely!  you know, here in DC it's common knowledge that one of the

alright, in the sense of Jeffersonian liberalism - ie civil liberties and
equal rights - we libertarians might be said to be liberal...just as the
Declaration of Independence might be said to be a 'liberal' document under
the same criteria.  Unfortunately the term 'liberal' has in fact been
usurped by the yuppie p.c. pseudoliberal scum who are currently in control
of the government and the mainstream media.  Therefore we generally avoid
that term, in order to avoid the concurrent confusion.

the funny thing here, is that this is *exactly* what *they* say about

none the less, that's not going to change any time soon...so we have to
work with what's available, frankie...if we sit around waiting for an
optimal situation, the statists are going to eat us all for lunch.  We
MUST work together to survive.  If we can't have a true libertarian
society, than a strict constitutionalist one, with a federal government
stripped to the bare minimum, is still going to be orders of magnitude
better than the situation today.

even an unarmed march would be asking for trouble.  how difficult do you
think it would be for the statist controled media to edit any incident so
that the video showed that "militia members" started firing first?  study
the radio station incident that Hitler used to justify the invasion of
Poland...with modern digital editting techniques, they'd be able to make
that look like a middle school drama production....

In this case, I think my statement can reasonably be said to reflect the
views of the vast majority of the movement, including *all* of the
Constitutional Militias, and quite a few of the independents as well. 
There is no way to nationalize the movement militarily without becoming
the same as our enemies...there might be a way to nationalize it
politically, but that would take a *lot* of serious negotiation among the
various concerned parties...personally I don't think that stage has been
reached quite yet, although it may be close at hand.

yep, and we all spread the word back about LT...nice lady, very dedicated,

 In other words the movment itself forced her to back down, and cancel the

hmm, you're just trying to get me into trouble with some of the
Conservative Christians, aren't you?  Oh well, here goes: okay, this is
your first, although I must admit, easily understandable mistake.  The use
of the word 'witch' in this context was a *mistranslation* which occurred
a very long time ago...I'm not sure if it's traceable to the Jerome
Vulgate, but it certainly goes back as far as the King James Version, in
English.  IF you go back to the original Hebrew, the word used in the
phrase condemning certain types of paranormal activities actually means
'necromancer'...well a little more than that (there really isn't an exact
English equvalent) it actually means someone who uses evil powers to
enslave the souls of those who have been condemned - check out the 'witch'
of endor...who was actually the necromancer of endor, which is why a
certain biblical figure got in so much trouble for talking to her.  If one
reads the Old Testament, one comes across multiple instances of paranormal
phenomena...of people capable of paranormal actions...these are only
condemned when they are used in a manner *counter* to God's will.  i.e.
The Egyptian wizards had obviously existed for a long time, prior to Moses
and Aaron challenging them - they lost their power and became ineffective
only because they directly challenged the Divinely inspired power of
Moses' Staff.  Indeed, in I Cor 12 St Paul plainly states that there are
paranormal abilities and that these abilities are given *by* God.


>Pot smoking is the use of a psychoactive drug,

Pot is no more or less psychoactive than wine, which was the most common
adult beverage in the Bible...In point of fact, Jesus is actually recorded
as turning water *into* wine, at the wedding of a friend.  Wine use, in
and of itself was not condemned although excessive overuse - drunkenness,
certainly *was* seen as evil.

> which is sorcery
>according to the original meaning of sorcery, being a translation

again, you're using the wrong word 'sorcery' when in fact the original
text refers to 'necromancy' but more to the point you are also following
the wrong language tree, in that the deriviative meanings from the O.T.
come from Hebrew, not Greek sources.

uh, actually they're enacted by groups of people who see the results of

prohibition.

That's from old central european folk stories about wise women with
special abilities who were, among other things, capable of animating
inanimate objects...one of the examples cited in the stories were animated
brooms which were ridden like horses (with the bristles *forward* by the
way, like a horse's head).  This was due to the fact that horses were so
expensive to own and maintain that only very wealthy people had them -
everybody else walked.  These stories were subsequently twisted, by the
Puritans, and others, into the 'witch hunts' of the late middle ages up
through the middle 17th Century.  Make no mistake - those activities were
reprehensible in the extreme, but they did NOT reflect the true values of
Christianity - they simply provided an expedient means for keeping the
commoners scared and dependent on the state.

uh, frankie, I, and most other libertarians I know, advocate execution for
certain crimes rather than life imprisonment - basically because *we*
aren't willing to pay room and board for the next 50 years for the likes
of Ted Bundy.  as to Newt 'advocating mass-executions' of anybody, I'm
going to have to ask you to be more specific - to say that I find this far
fetched, is certainly not an overstatement of my initial reaction.

Indeed billy jeff is advocating these sorts of things...now explain how
the weasel from arkansas, who is owned by every liberal interest under

that's also going to require some examples - you have evidence of him

CDA, the antiterrorism bill, the crime bill, and gun control were all

uh, frankie, a whole bunch of nations had nukes *before* the disbanding of
the ussr.  It's just that they knew that any attempt to use them would
result in either us or the russians making sure that there wasn't anybody 
in a position to do such a stupid thing twice....more to the point,
destabilization is an inherent historical event which occurs over and over
again, to expect the entire cyclic course of history to suddenly stop is a
bit unrealistic, don't you think?

frankie, the media have been doing everything in their power to smear us
for several years now.  Certainly most of our people are not very media
savvy, and that has hurt us, but it really wouldn't matter all that much -
as an example look at Ralph Nader - now I don't agree with most of what
Mr. Nader believes, but he *is* very bright, and a trained lawyer to boot,
yet the media generally make him come off as an absent minded idiot who's
about 2 tacos short of the blue plate special...they can do this to
anybody.  What this points to is the need for the development of a
political wing within the movement, in order to have people who are
capable of communicating our issues without allowing the media to run
roughshod over them.  Let me make one other thing perfectly clear.  Yes,
some of our folks take their stand with the Bible in one hand, and a rifle
in the other, but  I have no problem with them at all, nor with those who
stand with the Torah in one hand, and a rifle in the other, nor those who
stand with the Book of Mormon in one hand and a rifle in the other...AS
LONG AS THEY ARE HOLDING ONTO THE CONSTITUTION AS WELL.  It can be in
either hand, either under their Scriptures, or over the rifle.

possible, but unlikely...any such attempt would almost certainly trigger
armed resistance, and the statists know it, no, they'll most likely try
more incremental nonsense, hoping nobody will notice...

of course.  we oppose any form of dictatorship, that's a given...and our
Conservative Christian friends know that, again there's no problem.

c.i. types are neither Christian, nor conservative, they're neonazis who
have adapted twisted versions of some of the outward trappings of
Christianity in an attempt to disguise their fundamental fascism.  C'mon
frankie, I know you're a theophobe, but a bit of basic research should

Not a problem, Michael, I was attempting to generalize, in the interests
of brevity, and I fear I ended up overgeneralizing on this point.  Let me
attempt to a more complete explanation:

alcohol in moderate quantities is a depressant, just as you stated.  THC,
the active chemical compound in pot is also, in moderate quantities, a
depressant.  One of the major differences here, of course, is that the
body can metabolize the alcohol into sugar - which is where energetic, and
sometimes dangerous drunks get all of their energy; while THC simply
remains in the body as a chemical substance until it is filtered out by
the kidneys and excreted - thus users of pot are not able to draw on any
additional energy, and tend to be more passive.  Hallucinations, from
either alcohol or THC occur only when large (i.e. abusive) quantities are
consumed, or when either substance has been contaminated with more highly
psychoactive substance.  The point I was trying to make was that it was
not *consumption* per se which was decried as a sin, but rather abusive
and debillitating consumption...does that make it any clearer?

nice try les, now you're counting on the historical ignorance of your
readership.  While the Weimar Republic was coerced by the allied powers
into instituting stringent gun control laws, they were never in any
position to enforce those laws.  The country was destabilized by a
staggering war debt, the resulting inflation, depression, and the direct
destabilization efforts of both the communists and your ancestors, the
original nazis.  The difference between the Weimar Republic's laws and the
nazi law of 1938 was that by 1938 the fascist regime was well on it's way
to instituting an absolute police state with in Germany, thus making over
rigid enforcement of it's law much more of a threat than the 1928 laws
ever were - just as the over rigid enforcement of the gun control laws
today makes them as much of a threat to liberty as your nazi ancestors
attempts of 60 years ago.  No sale, les.

okay Wiz, as someone who has actually taught in a Catholic parochial
school ( I don't do public schools, thankyou) I'll include science,
environmental studies,  and *real* geography including cultural geography
as areas where I've seen private religious schools excel over the holding
tanks that are most of the urban public school system...sorry, but your
bias is showing...

again this is not an inherent truth.  Here in Virginia, for example, the
parochial school standards are in many ways parallel, and in some ways
more stringent, than their public school equivalents.  More importantly,
the smaller class size, parental envolvement and consistent enforcement of
rules insures that the teachers and students spend vastly more of their
time on course materials and vastly less on 'administrative' and
disciplinary matters than their public school counterparts.  I do believe
you are over generalizing, just a bit, eh?

which is an argument against *any* school district which focusses on these
things...unless of course that's all they *can* focus on, because their
students are so far behind the performance curve, as is the case with some
*public* schools in this area.

which is exactly what's happening to students in public schools.  for the

this is an invalid comparison.  Wiz, ya gotta pay attention to the
cultural and religious roots of the people *running* the schools - Latin
American religious structures are derived from Spanish, authoritarian
cultural models.  American religious structures are derived from
Anglo-American, anti-authoritarian models... this is a totally different
environment.  Thus to attempt to draw conclusions about American schools
>from  their Latin American counterparts is to base such conclusions on a

uh sorry to disturb your lack of information, but twice in the last month
(once in Chicago and once in Pittsburg) U.S. military special operations
units have in fact performed low altitude maneuvers over portions of
populated urban areas...without prior warning being given.  I understand
that the City of Pittsburg is in the process of filing a formal complaint
with the federal government, for all the good it will do them.  I fully
support paint balling any further such incidents - at least it'll mess up
their fancy paint job....

frankie this is simply not true.  Their theology of hate intentionally

sorry, should have been more specific, I meant a little  basic research

c.i....the latter hadn't even occurred to me as something you'd be
comfortable with...my fault.

frankie there is *no* *such* *thing* as 'racist Christianity'. 
Christianity is profoundly inclusive of all races.  This is what I meant
about their twisted attempts at theology...they started with their facist
beliefs and then  twisted or mutilated Scripture in an vain attempt to
demonstrate the 'correctness' of their views.  I challenge you to
investigate the theological basis for several of the mainstream Christian
denominations, and then see if you can maintain your belief that c.i. is
anything other than an intentional perversion.

Hi again Wiz,

Well, let's see where we go with it now, eh?

>Shades of Copernicus! I'm not convinced that American Catholic schools
>such as you describe are representative of the current and evolving trend
>of religious schools in general, end especially of the new fortress-like
>"Christian Academies" springing up around the country ...

Okay, I need to ask the source of your data on religious schools. 
Certainly the American Catholic schools with which I am familiar are
representative of the current trend in, well, Catholic schools...but then
they are probably the most well established, and certainly the most
numerous of the many types of religious schools, followed, though not too
closely, by the Episcopalean, Lutheran, and Methodist parochial schools.
There are also Quaker schools, although few in number, these have a long
tradition of high standards (and tend to be quite liberal, to boot).  I am
familiar with a few schools in this area which use the 'Christian Academy'
moniker, and my impression is that they are mostly either Baptist or
Assembly of God - two of the more conservative Protestant denominations...
 It seems a bit, uhm, distorted, to attempt to define the entire movement
by a few conservative religious schools...while I have no direct knowledge
of their educational approach, whatever their pedagogy it certainly cannot
be said to represent the entire spectrum of church supported education.

> the reports of
>religionist opposition to teaching issues like evolution, different
>religions, cultural studies, and a multitude of environmental issues
>abound and match my observations.

which ones, and where?  of the thousands of Christian schools in this
country, how many fall into the categories covered by your reports? 
Really Wiz, you need to be careful about over generalizing that way, you
might get one of the liberal Methodists or Quakers mad at you, and some of
them can talk your ear off, once they get rolling! :-)

> More extreme religionists have gone so
>far as to sponsor public book burnings.

data sources please?


> Not wanting to open a can of

uh, negative on all counts Wiz.  First, although this can vary from state
to state, in Virginia the Catholic schools are accreditted through the a
Catholic accreditation authority, not a state governmental authority. 
Second, the current per pupil expenditures in the District of Columbia
public schools average around $9,000 per year, while the parochial schools
are operating on about 1/3 of that.  Third, there is no need to compete
with the public school system, since the latter is in such abysmal shape
that any decent education provider automatically shows it up.

again Wiz, you're operating on false assumptions.  The parochials schools,
supported by parents who are STILL required to pay taxes in support of
public schools they do not use, are doing more, with less money, and
generally doing it better (and SAFER) than their public school
counterparts.  The public school system is terminally broken, and there is
no sane reason that it could not easily be scrapped in favor of vouchers
tomorrow - the only thing preventing that are the political machinations
of the teachers unions, and a few die hard liberals who still seem to
think that throwing money at a problem is the best way to fix it.

>As for-profit schools,

this is another over-generalization, Wiz.  Some private schools are indeed
for-profit, but most church supported schools are either drawing
additional funding from their supporting congregations, or barely break
even.

> they _should_ have smaller classes and, most
>importantly, can be more SELECTIVE on who they accept ... religious

all schools should be selective.  It is NOT the school's job to socialize
or discipline students - that is the responsibility of the students'
parents.  It is also NOT the school's job to act as a holding pen for
disaffected youth.  A general lack of public understanding of these two
points has been a major contributing factor to the on-going devolution of
the public school system.

I'm sorry, Wiz, but I need to ask you to rephrase this statement, because
quite frankly I don't understand what you are saying here...it's late and
it's been a long day, but maybe you could try saying this another way?

> Again, look
>to Latin America for an example ... it is not the cultural difference so

>the select.

uh, it was my impression that you were criticizing L.A. parochial schools,
in your last post, or did I get that wrong?

>Based on the nature of religion? 

Based on the nature of what part of which religion, Wiz?

>Current events by the religionists relating to what should be taught?

events by persons associated with what part of which religion Wiz?

> Efforts by some to eliminate central minimum standards? 

Here in Virginia, the Virginia Catholic Education Association has already
succeeded in that regard.

>Book burnings? 

haven't seen any of those...don't know of any teachers who would approve.

>Content protests?

it's called free speech, Wiz...First Ammendment and all that.

> Efforts to eliminate minimum standards? 

uh, I think we already covered that one.

>School prayer as a predominant issue over school content?

to those who believe strongly in this issue, prayer is an element of
content.

> Eliminating public funding (thus CAUSING the class size problems you

uh, Wiz, no one has yet succeeded in eliminating public funding (although
many of us, including the entire Libertarian Party,  look forward to that
day), the problems you note are caused by the corrupt bureaucracy inherent
in any goverment controled project.

> And looking to the future if outside controls are eliminated
>(which is a major stated desire by those groups)?

as I stated before, here in Va, and elsewhere this has already occurred. 
No problem here!

> I don't think so ...

I *still* think you're overgeneralizing...and a little confused about the
true sources of the problems.

>I think the message of the religionists has been made quite clear by
them.

uh, I'm still not clear on this term 'religionist' Wiz.  The way you use
it looks an awful like the way the klan types use the 'n' word, I must
say... or do we in fact all look alike to you?

>Throughout history and now they oppose broad-based and effective
education
>especially where it runs counter to theology.

Again, you seem to be generalizing from a few specific examples to a much
larger, and more diverse population which bears little resemblance to what
you describe.

>And for the life of me I can't understand why so many people actively
work

because it's terminally broken, and as long as the government continues to

effective.

LOL!  and if the Democratic Party suddenly contributed all of their money

C'mon Wiz, let's at least try to main some semblance of reality in the
debate.

Okay, well, I guess we can't expect you to be an expert on the various
flavors of Christianity, so I'll simply say that except in matters of
religion or politics, Latin American societies are functionally
inefficient at imposing authoritarian controls, but that's about as far as

Nice try, Wiz, but my comment about rules was meant to communicate that
the children in the parochial schools were socialized and disciplined by
their parents, therefore not requiring the school to attempt the
impossible job of countering 18 hours per day of home life with six hours
per day of school rules.  hmm, sorry, guess I should have been clearer on
that the first time around.

unh-unh Wiz, reductio ad absurdum only works in context.  Which rules the
Japanese school systems out of bounds...even if you do choose to ignore
the increasing rates of psychological disfunction, disaffection, and
suicide among Japanese students - due in large part to the extreme
pressures on them to perform at or above their peak ability levels under
all circumstances.

The 'sheeple' discussion generally centers on the current products of
public schools, Wiz...

Hi Dave,

do a web search on CYBERWAR and CYBERWARFARE, you may find some
interesting stuff.  If you don't have web access let me know, and I'll

Hi Brian,

Good Lord, we really do need to get a real faq put together, now don't we?
:-)

Okay, here's what it is:

The Special Operations Forces (i.e. Rangers, Army Special Forces, Navy
Seals, etc) have a few dozen helicopters which are really truely painted
flat black.  This is because they sometimes have to sneak into places at
*night*...make sense so far?  BUT that isn't what *most* people mean when
they're talking about 'black helicopters'.  In point of fact, starting
about oh, eight years ago now, the military started painting it's
helicopters with a very expensive paint designed to frustrate laser target
designators - those are the devices used to guide laser guided missiles. 
Now in order for that paint to be effective, it has to be non-reflective
in several different parts of the spectrum...so that a laser pointed at it
wont reflect at all.  The paint is supposed to be dark green, and if you
get up close enough to it (like under about 50 feet) on a sunny day, it
really does look dark green.  But if you see it from a distance it just
looks like some dark color, and people have often mistaken these plain old
army helicopters for mysterious 'black helicopters' reported to be
operating in various areas of the country.  Does this answer your
question?

No, it only means that, to the extent that their message does not parallel
the central themes of the NT,  they've wandered somewhat from the central
theme of Christianity.  [oh boy, I can hardly *wait* to see the comments
on that sentence!]

>  I used to be christian, actually..I'm born-again atheist.

okay.  I'd be interested to hear about that some time.  I guess my other
question there is whether or not you've rejected all forms of
spirituality, simply because you found the Christianity didn't 'fit' for
you.

uh, not familiar with the term 'occultic sect' could you define please?

frankie the evil one can quote scripture, if it suits his purposes...that

erm, point to you on a technicality...

words,

>Hitler was a Christian.

no.  hitler *claimed* to be a Christian.  His actions, however, were NOT
consistent with Christianity, and therefore he was not what he claimed to
be.  Look frankie, I'm a radical libertarian, now if I suddenly started
claiming I was a socialist, but kept acting like a radical libertarian,
would it be legitimate for people to point to me as an example of
socialism?  of course not!  Just the same, in matters of spirituality, we
must define people by their *actions*, rather than their words.

>  hmm..so Identity Christians aren't conservative Christians?

no, by no means.

> They sure as hell aren't liberal agnostics.

true enough :-)

>  Would you agree with the term 'Christian cult'?

I would define them as a cult.  or perhaps, a cult which misuses the term
Christian.

>a> frankie there is *no* *such* *thing* as 'racist Christianity'.

I define people by their actions, not their words.  perhaps you use a
different standard?

yeah, yeah, it's also theophagic from that perspective...and atheism is
inherently self-destructive from a spiritual POV.

I believe that there are a series of core issues regarding both the Person
of Jesus, as well as God's Intent for the world, which are central to all
forms of real Christianity.

Okay, yet you would say these c.i. types are exactly the same as everyone

Hi Deena,

You are absolutely correct.  I think the initial exchange became heated so
quickly due to the anonymous nature of the original poster.  Most of us
have developed a healthy skepticism toward anonymous trolls by people who
refuse to identify themselves.  Indeed, sometimes we let our pent-up
frustration with these sorts of posters over ride our common sense in
responding to them.

That being said, you are most certainly right that common courtesy is a
neccessity, especially for us.  Because of the on-going smear campaign
against us in the mainstream media, we must be certain that all of our
dealings with the public occur in such a manner as to counteract that
propaganda.  By exercising common courtesy in all of our interactions with
others, we can leave those who actually meet us with a positive personal
experience in dealing with miltia members.  In leaving this positive
impression, we begin to reform our public image, and gain additional
support from non-committed members of the general public.  This is exactly
the type of support we will need in order to succeed in halting the
depredations of the federal government.

Well, Mary Ann, I'm sure you feel better after that little episode.  Sorry
your boy friend didn't agree with you, but as a guy, I think I see why he
left.  It looks like you got hooked up with some weird people.  I must say
that I find it interesting that the same smear tactics you decry are the
ones you yourself have used in your post.  Oh well, I guess one has to

uh, Ras, the militias haven't defended the freemen.  However this comment
of yours does raise a few other questions, such as:  'gilt' is an archaic
past tense form of the word meaning "to coat or plate with gold"...you
might want to try that one again?  Then of course there's the question of
'hiding behind women' - does this mean that you don't believe women are
capable of full participation in society?  or perhaps in their own

Okay, Mike, let's look at this for a minute.  Can you speak to average
class sizes or percentage of class periods spent on administrative and
disciplinary functions vs education?  You, my friend learned in that
environment because you are above average intelligence...I would submit
that you learned in spite of the system and not because of it.

could you give some examples, especially in the areas of history and the
sciences...this certainly is *not* the case, out here...except in the
voc-tech area....

Actually Joe, he appears to be just another neonazidiot who fantasizes
about ruling the ruins of a country shattered by direct confrontation
between the fedgov and the combined strength of the militias.  The really
funny part of this is that these supremacist types actually think other
people will *follow* them, if you can believe that nonsense!  Since once
again reality contradicts everything the supremacists believe, he feels
frustrated.  Let's hope he stays that way.

Hi Joseph,

I think you need to do a little research into the actual conditions which
existed in Germany under the Weimar Republic.  While a number of very
stringent laws were in fact passed, the German government knew very well
that it was incapable of enforcing any of them.  While the 1938 nazi gun
law may, on paper, appear to be less stringent, the enforcement capacity
of the nazi police state was such that there was virtually no possibility
of avoidance.  In other words, don't just look at the words - look at
their effects on the people, okay?

certainly voluntary conservation is a reflection of conservative values,

oh please don't remind me - I was stuck in a rural area with a rather
pricey long distance company as my only access to the net - I don't even
want to think about what my phone and internet bills were like for that
time period - it seemed like every time we got things quieted down
somebody else would pop out of the woodwork, and the whole mess would
start up again...oh well, goes with the territory I guess.

hmm, let's see, here in VA The Boy Scouts participate in such activities
as:

rimfire and centerfire rifle marksmanship (you, know, mark, like
'sniping')
capture the flag ('small unit tactics')
nature walks ('patroling')
nature photography ('recon')
and then of course all of those nasty lessons in wilderness survival
skills.

The point of all this mark, is not that the Boy Scouts are paramilitary
(well, except to the way way w-a-y out in left field types) but rather
that they could be *construed* to be paramilitary under many of the
overgeneral militia statutes...I realize that this knocks your stated
rationale for running the militia witchhunt web site into a cocked hat,
but hey maybe if you just came out and admitted that you're simply trying
to get enough publication credits to be offered a tenured position
somewhere, someone might be able to help you...

Hi John,

Arlin here, not Joe, but I have some questions, okay?

>The Montana Constitution makes it illegal for the fbi to operate in the
>republic of Montana with out the permission of the governor or state
>legislature.

Since Montana was formed directly as a state, and at no time existed
independent from the control of the federal government, please explain the
use of the term 'republic' in relation to the State of Montana.  (If I
missed this explanation, I'm sorry)

> Have they obtained this permission?

under current *federal* law the only time a federal agency would need to
seek permission from a state would be in a case where the federal agency
wished to intercede in a matter in which the *state* would normally be the
interested party.  Since there are allegations of securities fraud, which
is a federal responsibility, they are acting within the limits of the law
as it currently stands.

> Also the supreme court
>has ruled that law enforcement is the responsibility of individual
states. 

John the way the legislation currently stands there are different
responsibilities for federal state and local law enforcement.  While I am
not a lawyer, I do not know of any blanket ruling by the supremes which
invalidates federal law enforcement authority within the states.  If you
know of any such please post it to the newsgroup.

>Also what statute created the FBI? None. They are an illegal
>institution.

uh, John, the fbi was authorized by congress over 60 years ago...as such
it is a federally established agency which is authorized by federal law. 
Go to the Thomas web server and do a search in the United States Code on
the term 'Federal Bureau of Investigation', for the relevant cites.

Subject: Fires at both Black and White Churches
Lines: 54


Copyright © 1996 Nando.net
Copyright © 1996 The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (Jun 14, 1996 1:41 p.m. EDT) -- By early next week, the Bureau
of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms
hopes to have details on nearly two-dozen fires at white churches it is
investigating as it probes more-publicized blazes at more than 30
mostly-black Southern churches.
As the ATF struggles to help solve the blazes at black churches that have
taken place since January 1995, bureau records show the agency also is
probing arsons at 23 other non-black churches that have taken place during
the same time period.  A copy of the list, which was distributed to ATF
agents around the country earlier this week, was obtained by The
Associated Press.
While the June 7 fact sheet provides extensive details on the cases
involving fires at black churches, it includes no analysis of the other
church fires. But it includes a section listing all "open ATF church fire
investigations nationwide since January 1995." It lists a total of 48, 35
of which occurred this year.
In a separate category, the sheet said 25 of the fires have been at black
churches, which means 23 occurred in others; the number of fires in black
churches has since grown to 34, with another blaze at a black congregation
in Oklahoma on Thursday currently under investigation.
"That was an internal document, prepared for us and the Treasury
Department, and I realize that things like this only beg more questions,"
John Limbach, an ATF spokesman, said Thursday. "We're trying to pull our
data together, and we should be able to answer some of the questions about
those other fires by early next week."
While it was unclear where the non-black churches were located, civil
rights groups tracking Southern church burnings said they have found few
examples of anything but black churches going up in flames.
"If white church fires were on the increase, with racism as a reason, we'd
be on it in a heartbeat," said Angie Lowry of the Montgomery, Ala.-based
Southern Poverty Law Center, which studies racial issues. "I'm not seeing
it here in Alabama, and we're not seeing it anywhere else."
But one ATF official, speaking only on condition of anonymity, said one
problem with keeping track of church burnings is that until recently the
federal government did not keep such records on its arson investigations.
"If you go back five years, you won't find any more evidence that we've
investigated a church burning than you would that we've investigated a
warehouse fire," the ATF official said.
But even before President Clinton ordered the ATF to help solve the string
of arsons at black churches, the agency
increasingly was becoming involved in those cases -- which means the
agency likely is investigating more black-church fires than other types.
And in some cases, state figures tell another tale.In Alabama, for
example, a string of fires at black churches in the western part of the
state has drawn headlines. But state fire marshal John Robison said there
have been 37 arson fires in churches there since 1990 -- 19 at black
churches, 18 at white.
However, Lowry said, the fact that white churches greatly outnumber black
churches in Alabama means that, in a
proportional sense, black churches are burning with greater frequency.

Hi David,

No problem...sometimes it's hard for us to tell all the players without a

any ideas on why the supremacists keep trying to butt in over here?  I

The thing to do in this case is to copy down the complete tail number. 
Then you, and all of your neighbors take turns calling the air base
operations office and complaining about that airplane, referring to it by
that number...if that doesn't do the trick, try to get one of the local
television stations to come out with a camera crew and do an
'investigative report'.  You'll probably have to do something like this at
least once a year, but it keeps the LT's from yahooing most of the time,
anyway.

Hi Janet,

I understand. Unfortunately the PC crowd also control the propaganda/media
machine. The concern I was trying to express in my post was one involving,
uh, I guess you'd call it 'public relations'.  We've got a real uphill
battle in that department, and every little thing we do to leave
*individuals* thinking "hey, that person wasn't anything at all like what
the tv told me about militia members" has a positive effect for us.  It
may just be a small effect - one person at a time, but if the growth of
our movement proves nothing else, it is that enough 'one person's at a
time can make all the difference in the world.  make sense?

mark I realize you can be a little slow on the uptake when asked to deal
with concepts which exist outside of your rigid paradigm, but there is no
need avoid acknowledging an obvious truth, much less mock those speaking

Hi John,

as I recall, the Declaration was intended to prevent another
massacre...which, in point of fact it did.  It most certainly was NOT
intended to keep folks from having to justify their actions (i.e. all that
bad paper they are supposed to have written) in court.  Hmm, we obviously
interpretted this very differently...

interesting, impressions from my reading (although this was a few years

it was intended to put firearms in the hands of the *male* *aryan* portion
of the population, as you stated, in order to provide some pre-military
training.

uh, more correctly Joseph, I think that they were not actively interested
in restricting firearms ownership by the 'aryan' portions of the
population.  I think that's a very critical difference.  Even that isn't
absolutely true, as Goebbels made a point in one of his speaches that
firearms ownership was primarily intended for such groups as the
Stahlhelm.  (for those readers who aren't familiar with the inter-war
period - Stahlhelm [steel helmet] was a nazi sponsored veteran's
organization.)

Nor did the 1938 law in any way 'liberalize' firearms ownership by Jewish
civilians.

and again, these persons were not helped at all by the 'liberalization' of
the 1938 law.  I don't understand how a law which was specifically
designed to arm only one select part of the populace can be considered a
liberalization....

Actually, Lance, I think you pretty much did the right thing.  First off,
there were 3 of them, wide awake, and you standing there half asleep in
your underwear...the last thing you wanted to do was give them time to
react, the odds were *not* in your favor if they were who you think they
were, and they'd been through training...you might have gotten 1 or 2, but
chances are they were wearing vests.  Even if they had cooperated, what do
you think the chances were of getting *legitimate* identification off of
them?  nope, throwing them out and keeping them out probably was the best
course under the circumstances...depending on how friendly the local LEO's
are, you might have considered reporting the incident...but other than
that, I think you did pretty well, all things considered.

oh, and btw, there are very few historical records of vigilante actions by

Hi E.V.,

uh, actually you and John appear to be talking about two different things.
 What you're dealing with, in terms of such things as stop signs and no
smoking signs are commonly accepted symbols, and words.  This is very much
a cultural thing and depends on people being exposed to a common culture
with a common underlying value set.  What John is talking about is a
combination of psycho-linguistics, and language development.  In an
ultimate sense, many concepts aren't self-evident across cultures - a
quick example here:  to borrow from your example, in Mandarin Chinese it
is almost *impossible* to say 'no'...you can say something isn't something
else, or you can say something is false, but 'no' in the ultimate western
sense of the term doesn't really translate directly.  Now if one considers
all of the various subcultures here in the US, I think we can see how
different people do end up interpretting words, in fact entire concepts,
in radically different ways.

Just my 2 cents worth...

Uh, no Mike, an idiot-savant is a completely different phenomena. 
Actually this sort of phenomena isn't that uncommon among folks who are
extremely gifted in a particular area.  What you do is insure that they
still get enough basic information and social skills to be able to
function in society, and then let them go at it in their primary skill
area...

Hi John,

Perhaps the point is that people are smart *when they choose to pay
attention to what they're doing*.  Obviously, from all three of your
examples, there are cases where people *didn't* pay attention to what they
were doing while driving a car (auto accidents), raising children
(unsocialized teenage gangs), or governing themselves (pick any political
issue and you can find examples of this).  What concerns many of us, then,
is that there seem to be a growing number of folks in this country who
simply choose NOT to pay attention to what's going on around them...it
*is* easier that way, after all....

hmm, given that someone would be firing over buildings at night, there is
probably little chance of this happening.  in any case, of course, one
should always make certain one's downrange area is clear of unintended

only if one is extremely myopic.  market spot prices tend to fluctuate,
but the purchasing power of a given quantity of hard currency generally
will increase over the long term.  The trick here, of course, is to wait
for a downward fluctuation in the market before making such a purchase.  I
might suggest a course in basic economics, Paul, it would help you
understand some of this stuff.

Hi Mike,

Okay, I think I see the confusion.  first off, the public schools out here
are *very* different from the public schools that you describe...of course
you could probably tell that by my previous descriptions.  Also the
private/parochial schools out here are just as different.  ah well, I
guess that's what 'local control' is all about.  In any case.  I think you
were very lucky to go to school when and where you did.

I think you need to define what you mean by a "standard".  Do you mean the

I have yet to see Mike V. state anything that was not the truth.  I have

In other words Mike may get a bit fiesty on occaision, but I really don't

hmm, my comments there were intended to encourage you to being more
specific.  As we've both noted in this discussion, there area wide
variations in religious beliefs even within the same religion, even as
there are wide variations in character between people of the same ethnic
derivation.  Thus, rather than seeking a redefinition of a generic term, I
was hoping you might begin to speak to specific observed instances by, oh,
say, location and denomination of the folks involved?  Just a thought.

Okay, so then we can see that it is not religious schools, per se, which
are the problem.

Since both the Baptists and the AOG are literalists, such protests would
be well within their theology.  As far as violence goes - what percentage
of the total Baptist and/or AOG population might actually be involved in
such violence?  1/2 of 1 percent, perhaps?  These are large
denominations...how do the percentages of violent activity by members of
these denominations stack up against percentages of violent crime
committed by members of the general public?  


>It would be if they weren't growing so fast while at the same time their

well, I can't speak for Florida, but up here in Virginia, ALL private
schools are going rapidly.  Oh, and (*ahem*) privatization of ALL
education is a plank of the *Libertarian* Party platform - and *we* don't
have a 'religious wing'.  You can check out any of the major libertarian
web sites, if you want to confirm this statement.

hmm, well school privatization certainly represents a rapidly growing
trend...perhaps in this instance I actually need to encourage you to look
at the *wider* picture - religious schools are simply one aspect of the
privatization movement.

okay, while I haven't seen anything one way or the other on performance in
areas without public schools, I do agree that competition is always good! 
Of course such competition could just as easily occur between private
religious schools and private sectarian schools without any need for the
government whatsoever.

DC is actually quite similar to portions of NYC, inner city Boston,
Baltimore, portions of LA, and so on - DC is just slightly more corrupt
and  this ends up wasting an extra grand or two per pupil per year, as
compared to the other major urban areas.

okay now Wiz, once again, what percentage of the total population of folks
who have "backgrounds in the religionist educational system" are violent? 
How does this compare with the percentage of violent folks coming out of
the public school systems?

Okay, this is a fundamental difference between Libertarians, and liberals
- we believe there is no such thing as "all of society" - there are only
people.  People should never be forced to pay for services NOT rendered,
thus such taxation constitutes nothing more than robbery perpetrated by
those who wish to continue the existing system.  Believe me, even your
family could benefit, were such robbery not taking place.  [see, Wiz, two

hold on a minute Wiz, who said anything about religious schools being the
*only* private school alternative?  *ahem* I certainly didn't.  While I
agree that there are many teachers currently in the public school system
who could not possibly survive in a competitive market, they could
certainly be replaced, and the secular private schools would be all the
better for it.

Oh, the need for funding beyond the level provided by tuition is quite
common, indeed almost universal, in parochial schools.  There are
exceptions, but most of them tend to more toward the far liberal side of
the political spectrum.  I don't understand your remark about return on
investment - could you elaborate a little more please?

let me clarify my previous statement.  Religious schools are inherently
aligned with a particular moral or religious outlook.  That is one of the
primary reasons parents choose such schools for their children.  However,
it is not the job of any other type of school to socialize or discipline
students - that is a parental responsibility.

Ah, so you believe that rather than dealing with the actual causes of such
things as child prostitution and forced child labor, you'd rather  pay to
simply have the kids held somewhere?  and that you believe that you are
empowered to force others to pay for this as well?

No, sorry, what I meant was that the VCEA has succeeded in establishing

their collective throats.

*ahem* Vouchers are a LIBERTARIAN idea, which some religious groups have
chosen to support as well.

again Wiz, the vast majority of religious schools are operated only with
the assistance of their supporting congregations...I have no idea where
you got the impression it was otherwise. 

No government controled school can be fixed.  Bureaucracies are inherently
corrupt and as long as they are run by human beings, will never be
otherwise.  There is also no such thing as 'the community in it's
entirety'.  That is a common statist propaganda ploy used to justify
coercive taxation of large groups of people who simply live in the same
geographic region.  There is no larger community, only the many small
communities and individuals who associate by conscious choice.

again, what percentage of the total religious school population does this
reflect? now let's compare that to the portion of the general population
which has minimal or no capacity for independent, rational thought and
operates on the old "if it ain't on the 7 o'clock news it ain't so" type

Actually, I think this dialog has been quite effective in pointing out

become. :-)

Hi Walter,

Uh, the cops in DC routinely shoot people, period.  My thoughts on how to
accomplish this were several:

In static situations (i.e. you wake up and discover that the blackshirts
have surrounded you house) simply blow the powder down onto them with a
shop vacuum, from a second floor window...just have to be careful how you
approach the window, so they don't get a clear shot at you...probably nail
the vacuum hose though.  In street confrontations, if they're gonna beat
the crap out of you anyway, and you're unarmed (a la a couple of the
situations that Wiz has mentioned he experienced), what have you got to
loose by throwing a bag of powder on them?

The idea here is not that we're going to avoid getting hurt, since that
doesn't seem likely, but rather to make the blackshirts look stupid in
front of the media, AND be able to identify them later.   How many
blackshirts are going to want to walk around with their face and hair
purple for a couple of weeks? or have their picture flashed on the 6
o'clock news as 'the latest victim of the purple dye attacks'?  

Just my 2 cents worth,
Arlin

uh, David, I believe that the MSP have some riot control type armored

Okay, first off, a little metalurgical history: 1. up until the
development of reliable electronic smelting processes, aluminum was
*rarer* than gold by several orders of magnitude.  In fact if you check
your history, one of the propaganda items that the Allies used to
demonstrate that Napoleon was an extravigant waistral was the fact that
his Guards Regiments' standards were topped with aluminum eagles - making
them worth many times more than their VOLUME in gold.  In other words, an
aluminum standard never developed because it went from being ultra-scarce
to being ultra-common.

2.  A platinum standard never developed because there was never enough of
it to bring into circulation, it was difficult to work, and there just
wasn't that much call for something that was (historically) worth 5 times
it's weight in gold.  In other words gold was sufficiently rare enough to
be valuable, sufficiently available enought to be useful in commerce, and
sufficiently easy enough to work so that it could be pressed into ingots,
coins, or what have you.

Gold's value is arbitrary only in the same manner that any other limited
resource's value is arbitrary - diamonds, saphires, and rubies being more
examples of the same.  The point in basing hard currency on a limited
resource is that it severely constrains currency inflation.  If, for
example, every dollar printed was required to be backed by an ounce of
silver, then once the silver reserve had been accounted for, no more
dollars could be printed until more silver had been mined.  Beyond that,
the *new* dollars, based on recently mined silver, would still have the
same full value as the *old* dollars based on previously owned silver. 
Current monetary policy, on the other hand, insures that dollars are
backed by nothing other than government hot air, thus every new dollar
printed degrades in value, not only itself, but all previously printed
dollars.  Simple enough, really.

Hi Wiz,

uh, one major error in your logic here.  This isn't a libertarian
environment.  If it were, there would be no 'public' resources. 
Individuals or communities of individual would own resources, and have
final say as to their allocation.  In other words, were this a true
libertarian environment, the incident would not have occurred, or had it,
one of the parties would have either been trespassing or in breach of
contract, or both.  [either of those offenses is extremely serious from a
libertarian perspective, BTW].

Sorry, no score!

Hi Joe,

I agree, and I should have specified that in my original post.  What I was

and indeed they might well have been using paintballs in a true
libertarian environment as well.  You simply assumed the only recourse
would be to firearms.  While this is not the case, I think one would
certainly consider ALL of one's options before trespassing, I also didn't
specify as to whether it was the hiker or the paintball players who might
have been trespassing - your assumption again, had it been the hiker's
property and were she severely outnumbered / outclassed by the
paintballers, I'm certain, had she been libertarian, she would have
considered at least the threat of lethal force as an option to get them to
leave or pay rent :-)

uh, since we haven't bombed anything, or burned anything, or killed
anybody so far, that isn't saying much...the point here is that if you are
talking less than 1 or 2 percent of their respective groups, then they are
either at or below the national average for the number of wackos in any

hmm, I think you're conflicting two different criteria here.  First off, I
don't know of any studies or reports which characterize criminals by their
religious background - in fact I shudder to think of the hew and cry which
would be raised if any such study were even attempted.  Thus, even if an
area might have a significant population of Christian Literalists living
in it, you cannot say that *they* are or are not committing the crimes in
that area.  An equally valid premise would be that in high risk areas,
people seek to establish stronger rules for acceptable behavior, thus
making Conservative Christian denominations more attractive.

Okay, Wiz, HOW MANY out of the total number of private schools in your
area have such construction?  So what percentage of the total number of
private schools does that come out to be?

More seriously though, there are no typical demographics, which is why
attempting to set any educational policy above the level of the local
community is inevitably doomed to failure.

I don't know, I've never known a church that gave 'perpetual tithe'
sermons...I thought that was just done by pseudo evangelists on
television...of course as a libertarian, I'd say that anybody who chose to
participate in such an organization was getting what they contracted

Okay, now, the next question is: how many with such backgrounds *didn't*
harass or kill anyone?  Go ahead, you can guess at a general

Uh, Wiz, there's this thing in Christianity called The Great
Commission...you may have heard of it - it's the bit that starts with the
words "Go ye therefore into all the world...".  Christianity, by
definition, requires evangelism.  Evangelism costs bucks - even starving
preachers generally need to have something to eat and a place to sleep. 
If you want to look at your calculations as 'profit' then here's where the
'profit' gets reinvested...

LOL!  you're kidding!  you don't actually believe public education
*doesn't* have an agenda, now do you Wiz??  Or is it that you're upset
because some parents, who disagree with that agenda have managed, in the
face of government persecution (called 'property taxes') to provide for an
alternative for their own children, in any case...

anything is an improvement over public education in most places.  The

nice try, Wiz, but you know that isn't what I meant.  In point of fact
there are large groups in any area who belong to widely diverse
subcultures, with different systems of ethical values, rules, goals, and
precepts...to claim that these can somehow be melted into a 'greater
community' is overly idealistic at best, and generally leads to fascist
suppression of those elements not deemed 'politically correct'.  that's
just historical fact, Wiz...welcome to human nature...something liberals
always seem to want to ignore.

funny the CC's tell us the same thing about us as compared to PC
liberalism - it's easier to live with us, than it is you guys...so the
question is: why does everybody still refuse to do it that way? *sigh* so
much for logic.

certainly true. [my turn to smile sweetly] and just as true of almost any

acceptable past time for nation states...at least by the conquerors...

hokay, I'll buy the fact that we do learn similar things from similar
experiences - i.e. a small child hears the parent say 'No!' and then is
restrained by the parent from doing something, eventually learning through
repetition that the word 'no' means that something is not allowed and/or
should not be done...are we on the same track here, or did I miss
something?

Thankyou, Yakubu, most of us were already aware this is just more nazidiot
propaganda.  Isn't it amazing that the supremacists consider stuff like
this and the turner diaries to be creative and inspirational?  I guess it

Ah Joseph now we move into different territory...if you really believe
that regression analysis on 496 people can accurately reflect the entire
population of the United States, then I guess it's not unreasonable for
you to take refuge in these sorts of pseudostatistics...however, please

I'm sorry Matt, but that would require the permission of the folks

1 Psi Ops Co forwards for 1ACR:

JOHN DOE #2 IDENTIFIED; BUT CAN WE GET THE FBI TO ARREST HIM?
(PART ONE)
by Mike Vanderboegh, 1ACR

NOTE: 1ACR has been assisting Glenn & Kathy Wilburn with their private
investigation of the Oklahoma City bombing and the search for ALL of the
killers of their two grandchildren and 166 other Americans.  The analysis
below is my own, and it should be made clear that I do not presume to
speak
for the Wilburns.  The Wilburns are two very courageous Americans who have
suffered much in their search for the truth.  Other Oklahoma City victims
have criticized the Wilburns for seeking to get McVeigh off the hook.
Nothing could be further from the truth.  None of the information that
they
or their many volunteer helpers have discovered (of which I am but one)
exculpates Timothy McVeigh.  McVeigh was the truck driver, and a key
player
in the plot.  What
we are after is the rest of the bombers and the murdering bastards that
sent
them and sheltered them after the fact.

MEET JOHN DOE #2: MICHAEL BRESCIA

Michael Brescia (xerox of photo available upon request) is the son of Mr.
&
Mrs. William M. Brescia, 859 Manatawna Avenue, Philadelphia, PA, 19128.
Neither Mr. Brescia (a Philadelphia-area firefighter) nor his wife will
comment on their son or his movements.  A graduate of LaSalle High School
(215 233-2911), Brescia attended LaSalle University  (215 951-1000)
without
graduating, although sources say he made inquiries about attending this
fall.


While a high school student he reportedly was into survivalism, but in
time
he grew into the white supremacist movement.  Sources familiar with his
university career say he was the subject of a fraternity disciplinary
hearing
when he reportedly attempted to recruit his fellow frat brothers into a
"white supremacist cell."  Brescia left the university and Philadelphia
shortly thereafter for a stay at that most bucolic of racist antisemite
retreats: the Elohim City "Christian Identity" compound in Oklahoma. 

 (The uninitiated often struggle with the differences between the
Christian
Identity movement and the paganist neo-Nazis such as the Aryan Nations, as
they share a virulent racism and antisemitism and have been known to
cooperate on paramilitary ventures.  The principle difference between the
two
is that unlike the neo-Nazis (who worship Odin, Thor and miscellaneous
Norse
biker-gods but have no limiting illusions about morality or charity),
Christian Identity folks think racism and antisemitism is OK because God
and
Jesus told 'em so.)

WELCOME TO JOHN-DOEVILLE...

Michael Brescia was introduced to Elohim City by Mark Thomas, Aryan
Nations'
bigshot in the eastern Pennsylvania area.  Some of Mark's other buddies
included the recently captured Midwest bankrobbers who also hailed from
eastern PA (more about them in an upcoming article).

Elohim City, a 400-acre compound of about 20 buildings located 35 miles
northwest of Fort Smith, AR,(near Sallisaw, OK)  was founded in 1973 by
Robert Millar, age 70. Elohim City has about a hundred residents these
days
including all four of Millar's sons and 25 of his 34 grandchildren.

"Things are different here.  Elohim City operates on its own calendar and
clock.  Each year begins with the spring equinox and each day begins at
noon.
Millar said the concept is found in the Bible in Gemesis and Deuteronomy.
Residents adhere to a religious doctrine called Christian Identity, which
contends that white Anglo-Saxons, not Jews, are God's chosen people, and
that
America, not Israel, is the Promised Land.  According to Christian
Identity,
Jews are Satan's children, and non-whites are believed to be 'pre-Adamic,'
a
lower form of species than white people.  Those who monitor right-wing
extremist groups say Millar is probably the most influential Christian
Identity leader in the Great Plains." 
( From "We Are Not Dangerous, Leader of Separatists Says" by Judy Thomas,
The
Kansas City Star, Sunday, March 17, 1996.)


Elohim City attracts an electic bunch.  Ray Lampley, who differed with
Millar
on the finer points of theology (Lampley styled himself as "Prophet of
Yahweh") but not the racisim or antisemitism of Christian Identity---
intended to practice bomb detonation at Elohim City the day he was busted
for
(and subsequently convicted of) planning to carry out the terror bombing
of
five targets including the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, AL. 

Millar said he knew Lampley but had no knowledge of the plot.

Richard W. Snell, white supremacist and copkiller resides there, too.
Unfortunately for him he doesn't get around much anymore since he was
executed by the state of Arkansas for the 1983 murder of a pawnbroker he
mistakenly thought was Jewish.  (Hey, nobody ever said antisemites were
all
that bright.)  He was executed on April 19, 1995, the same day as the OKC
bombing with Millar in attendance as his chaplain and execution witness.
Millar brought his body back and buried it on the compound.

Former leader of the Covenant, Sword and Arm of the Lord (and federal
snitch)
James Ellison currently resides at Elohim City.  "Ellison, 55, was
convicted
on racketeering and weapons charges brought against him and other Covenant
members after a four-day standoof that began April 19, 1985, at the
group's
camp near the Missouri-Arkansas border.  His 20-year sentence was reduced
after he agreed to testify against some comrades in a trial in Fort Smith
Arkansas, in 1988.  Ellison was released in February, 1991 after nearly
six
years in prison.  He moved to Florida but was sent back to prison in 1993
for
violating parole.  He was released again in June, 1994 and returned to
Florida before moving to Elohim City, where he married the granddaughter
of
its leader, Robert Millar.  Dressed in faded jeans, a T-shirt and a
camouflage cap, Ellison talked candidly wbout his violent past.  He said
he
had no regrets.  'How can you regret something you felt like God told you
to
do?'"      ( Judy Thomas, ibid.)

Other routine "guests" at Elohim City were Andreas Carl Strassmeir (aka
"Andy
the German, aka John Doe #3) and Dennis Mahon, Aryan Nations organizer.
(More about these two later in Part Two.)

JD2 IDENTIFIED, BUT CAN WE GET FBI TO BUST HIM?
(PART TWO)

WELCOME TO JOHN-DOEVILLE (CONTINUED)

Two of Elohim City's more interesting citizens are/were Andreas Carl
Strassmeir (aka "Andy the German", aka Andy Strassdmeir, aka Andy
Stassmeir, aka Andy Stassdmeir, aka John Doe #3) and Dennis Mahon,
longtime KuKluxKlan, skinhead and Aryan Nations organizer.

"Dennis Mahon, a former Northmoor resident and imperial dragon of the Ku
Klux Klan, also has ties to Elohim City.  Mahon moved to Tulsa in 1990 and
now is a Midwest consultant for the White Aryan Resistance.  Mahon said he
and Andreas Strassmeir were close.  Strassmeir spent several weekends with
him in Tulsa, he said, and from 1992 to 1995, Mahon visited Elohim City
every month or two 'to visit and fellowship and do some target shooting
and military maneuvers.'  Mahon said he saw McVeigh at the same 1993 Tulsa
gun show that Strassmeir attended but that he never talked to McVeigh. 
Mahon, 45, said he last visited Elohim City about four months ago."  Judy
Thomas, Kansas City Star, Sunday, March 17, 1996.

Kirk Lyons, Andreas Strassmeir's lawyer, pal, mentor and cash conduit, had
this to say about Mahon in an interview with VOLKSTREUE, a German neo-nazi
magazine:

"I have great respect for the Klan historically but sadly, the Klan today
is ineffective and sometimes even destructive.  There are many spies in it
and most of its best leaders have left the Klan to do more effective work
within the movement.  It would be good if the Klan followed the advice of
former Klansman Robert Miles: "Become invisible.  Hang the robes and hoods
in the cupboard and become an underground organisation."  This would make
the Klan stronger than ever before.  Because of the reasons I mentioned
before, I think that the Klan would be just as useless in Germany.  THE
MAN WHO IS MAINLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SUCCESS OF THE KLAN IN GERMANY--
DENNIS MAHON-- HAS LEFT THE KLAN. (Emphasis supplied.) .....Your movement
should rely on German traditions, culture and Volkstum for its
inspiration.  I would encourage you to work together with
nationalist-thinking organisations in other countries, but I see no need
to import a backward and failed experiment into Germany."

(A future discussion topic: Was Kirk Lyons an accessory to the OKC
conspiracy before, or after, the fact?)

MEET JOHN DOE #3: ANDREAS CARL STRASSMEIR.

Andreas Strassmeir, son of "the architect of German reunification" and
Helmut Kohl's "right hand man/minister without portfolio", was a long-time
resident and chief of security at Elohim City  (although he made many
interesting trips while based at Elohim City for his twin mentors Vincent
Petruskie and Kirk Lyons, the "Odd Couple" sponsors of mass murder). 

Michael Brescia was a roommate of Andreas' at Elohim City, as was (we have
seen) Dennis Mahon.  Ambrose Evans-Prichard of the London Sunday Telegraph
has done a remarkable series of stories about "Andy the German."  Part Two
of "John Doe 2 Identified" concludes with an attached story by AEP
containing some startling revelations.

Coming Up:   Part Three of "John Doe 2 Identified"  -- "So how did a

From: Free Speech 
Subject: [FreeSpeech-NewsWire] Did agents bungle US terror bomb?

  Did agents bungle US terror bomb?

By Ambrose Evans-Pritchard in Junction City, Kansas and Andrew Gimson in
Berlin

ANDREAS Strassmeir lives quietly with his parents in a well-to-do area of
West Berlin. His father was once a top aide to German Chancellor Helmut
Kohl. His brother is a city councillor. For seven years he served in the
German army, at one point doing a tour of duty as a liaison officer with
the
Welsh Guards.

It is hard to imagine a more unlikely figure to surface in the drama of
the
1995 Oklahoma City bombing, the worst act of terrorism ever committed on
US
soil. But last week an Oklahoma couple, Glenn and Kathy Wilburn, announced
that they were going to name Strassmeir, 36, in a lawsuit as a "US federal
informant with material knowledge of the bombing". They say that
Strassmeir
became involved with the far-Right underworld when he lived with the
Elohim
City "Christian Identity" sect on the Arkansas-Oklahoma border from 1991
to
1995.

The Wilburns lost two grandchildren in the attack on the Alfred Murrah
federal building, which killed 168 people including 19 children. After
taping more than 300 hours of testimony in their own investigation, they
have concluded that the government had prior knowledge of the blast.

They say that the FBI has refused to pursue and arrest a number of
suspects
seen near the crime scene with Timothy McVeigh, who is said to have been
in
contact with paramilitary groups in the area and has been charged with the
bombing. The Wilburns say the refusal is presumably because the FBI is
afraid of exposing the government's negligence. "This was a sting
operation
that went berserk," said Glenn Wilburn.

The family has accumulated evidence which they claim indicates Strassmeir
was an undercover US agent who, while based at Elohim City, penetrated the
white separatist movement and alerted the authorities about the impending
attack. "Andy did his best, he tried to stop this thing, we're not blaming
him for what happened," said Wilburn. "But we're going to sue the US
government to break this wide open."

The Wilburns now believe that they have evidence from witnesses that five
to
seven men were involved in the bombing, and indications that several of
these had connections with Elohim City. So far only two people have been
charged: McVeigh and Terry Nichols. The FBI now says that nobody else was
involved. Strassmeir denies that he was an informant. "I've never worked
for
any US government agency, and I've not been involved in any intelligence
operation since my discharge from the German army in 1988," he said. "This
family [the Wilburns] is on a fishing expedition."

"The FBI asked where I was on the day of the bombing"

The decision to name him in the lawsuit comes after witnesses allegedly
identified him at the end of April as one of a number of men seen in
Junction City, Kansas, when McVeigh was also there during the days leading
up to the bombing. One of the witnesses said she contacted the FBI as soon
as she was shown a photograph of Strassmeir by a US news organisation
investigating the Oklahoma affair.

Within days, a US Justice Department team questioned Strassmeir, calling
him
in Berlin on April 30 and again on May 1 to ask about his alleged ties to
McVeigh. "The FBI asked where I was on the day of the bombing," he said.
"They wanted to help debunk the rumours spread about me." Strassmeir said
he
was at work near Elohim City at the time of the blast.

In a series of five interviews with The Telegraph he said that he first
lived in the US in 1989 because he was planning to work on a special
assignment for the US Justice Department. "I discussed the job when I was
in
Washington. I was hoping to work for the operations section of the DEA
[Drug
Enforcement Agency]," he explained. "It never worked out."

Vincent Petruskie, a retired US Air Force colonel, said that he helped
Strassmeir try to get a job in the DEA and the US Treasury. "We took him
under our wing when he first came to the United States, and to be quite
honest he's a little immature," he said. "I mean he's a good kid, but he
fantasises." In the end, Strassmeir says that he went to Texas and started
working as a salesman for a computer company. From there he seemingly
drifted into the sub-culture of the Ku Klux Klan, the Aryan Nations, and
the
extreme fringes of the Christian Right. In 1991 he went to live in Elohim
City, a primitive community of huts, guns and impenetrable theology. He
established himself as chief of security and weapons training, he said.

"I met the guy once at a gun show. We spoke for five minutes, that's all"

On April 5 1995 McVeigh - or somebody using his telephone billing card -
telephoned Elohim City. It was minutes after McVeigh had reserved the
Ryder
rental van that was allegedly used to blow up the Oklahoma City building.
According to Joan Millar, who answered the telephone, the caller asked to
speak to "Andy".

"I don't know why McVeigh was trying to contact me," said Strassmeir. "I
met
the guy once at a gun show. We spoke for five minutes, that's all. I sold
him a US Navy combat knife."

Without identifying himself, McVeigh also called the offices of
Strassmeir's
American lawyer, Kirk Lyons, for 15 minutes on April 18, 1995, the day
before the bombing. He apparently talked about the controversial raid by
federal agents on the Branch Davidian compound near Waco, Texas, which
resulted in more than 80 deaths, and the need to "send a message to the
government".

Strassmeir says that McVeigh never visited Elohim City. But McVeigh was
stopped for speeding on October 12 1993, 10 miles from Elohim City, on the
road to the compound. Strassmeir says that his four years at Elohim were
among the happiest of his life. But it was a curious existence for a man
who
had once been a lieutenant in the Panzer Grenadiers. He told The Sunday
Telegraph that he had received military intelligence training. Part of his
work was to detect infiltration by Warsaw Pact agents, he explained, and
then feed them disinformation. 

He is scathing in his criticism of the ATF - the US Treasury's Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms - saying that it did not have the
anthropological skills to infiltrate the Christian militias. "The
Right-wing
in the US is incredibly easy to penetrate if you know how to talk to
them,"
he said. "Of course it's easier for a foreigner with an accent; nobody
would
ever suspect a German of working for the federal government."

" He was just a weird cookie"

In February 1992 Strassmeir's maroon station wagon was impounded by the
Oklahoma highway patrol for a traffic violation. The police found in his
briefcase a collection of documents, some of them in German. According to
the tow-truck driver, Kenny Pence, Strassmeir soon brought heavy pressure
to
bear. "Boy, we caught hell over that one," he said. "The phone calls came
in
>from  the State Department, the Governor's office, and someone called and
said he had diplomatic immunity. He was just a weird cookie."

Strassmeir said the man must have been confused about some of the details.
"Some calls did come in to rattle their cage," he said. "Something may
have
been said about my father's position."

In hours of conversations with The Sunday Telegraph, over several days,
Strassmeir remained adamant that he had met McVeigh only once. He also
claimed that he had copper-bottomed information about the bombing, but
seemed torn over how much he felt able to impart.

"The ATF had an informant inside this operation. They had advance warning
and they bungled it," he said. "What they should have done is make an
arrest
while the bomb was still being made instead of waiting till the last
moment
for a publicity stunt."

Asked if he thought the alleged informant would ever speak out, he replied
with passion: "How can he? What happens if it was a sting operation from
the
very beginning? What happens if it comes out that the plant was a
provocateur? What then? The relatives of the victims are going to go
crazy,
and he's going to be held responsible for the murder of 168 people? Of
course the informant can't come forward. He's scared stiff right now."
Before and after this outburst he kept repeating that he was not making
veiled references to himself.

Lyons, Strassmeir's lawyer, says that his client has been dragged into the
Oklahoma bombing story by McVeigh's defence team. He says the defence
tactic
is to muddy the waters by sketching a vast conspiracy involving neo-Nazis
in
Europe and even Middle Eastern terrorists. "I call it the Space Alien
Elvis
Presley theory, and it's been fuelled by nutcases and conspiracy
theorists,"
he said.

"Andy has been damaged. Anybody who puts out the lie that he was linked to
the Oklahoma bombing in any way is going to pay for it."

hmm, if by 'less adept' you mean not as good at covering it up in the

I don't recall arguing that they should control public schools, my

hmm, in the same manner we can say that the minority of radical
environmentalists who publicly state on the internet that certain
politicians would be better dead, who booby trap logging equipment, and
who spike trees are guilty of maiming and murder, or are at least
accessories after the fact.  Now, do THEY represent the environmental

Nice try, but no, that's not what I meant at all.  Let me try again:  In
areas where there is a general breakdown of social mores, the tendency for
some people who realize that their society is to seek another community in
which stronger rules apply - thus the increase in Conservative Christian
denominations in such areas.  You need to watch that, Wiz, only liberals
associate the government with society - most of the rest of us see it as
antithetical to a healthy society.

Okay, let's see that's two out of ?how many? total private schools in your

Uh, Wiz, having grown up as a preacher's kid, I think I can say with some
degree of certainty that I have *never* met an ordained clergy member of
any denomination who felt anything other than dred at having to give the
once - a - year tithing sermon...yeah, that's right, Wiz, once per *year*.
 And I'll also state that as a p.k. I've probably interacted with more
clergy than any non-clergy / non-p.k. participant in this newsgroup.

native language...every asian warlord who wants to keep his people totally

and let's not forget the People's Security Bureau (secret police) of the
Peoples Republic of China, who despite a continuous policy of persecution,

Oh dear, here we go putting the rest of the newsgroup to sleep again

ideas of the parameters of the target population.  Yet, in point of fact,
if the target population is the population of the United States, we have a
fairly reasonable set of parameters established in the census data.  Using
this data we can reasonably define such parameters as gender, race, income
levels, education levels, residential settings (i.e. urban, suburban,
rural) and so forth.  Thus a study utilizing parametric statistical
methods is possible.  Since a parametric analysis is inherently more
accurate than a nonparametric analysis, the question becomes 'why are they
using nonparametric techniques?'.  The answer, of course, is cost.  A
statisticly significant random sample of the U.S. population, intended to
include all meaningful parameters (gender/gender orientation, income
level, race/ethnicity, educational level, residential setting, and so
forth) would require thousands of subjects.  This would be expensive. 
Thus, instead, the various groups conducting polls settle for a
nonparametric analysis based on a random sample of an overgeneralized (and
largely undefined) subset of the population and *pretend* it's the entire
population.

I think I'd have to debate that point as well.  Certainly, were a
corporation  to gain accurate information on the needs and desires of the
entire population, one would expect them to produce an overwhelmingly
effective, tailored campaign which would wipe their competition out of the
marketplace.  Yet this almost never occurs.  Why?  Because they base their
plans on nonparametric analysis, thus failing to account for major
segments of their target audience, and thus never accurately tailoring
their campaigns.  In other words the failures of such marketing techniques
simply point out the limited reliability of nonparametric measures. 
Corporate planners understand this at least on an intuitive level which is
why so much advertising, rather than attempting to appeal to the known
desires of their target audiences, attempts to seduce the audience into
accepting the advertised product as desirable.

Nice try kaa, and I realize that in the undergraduate course you probably
took, that's what they told you, but the reality is as I stated it: The
only legitimate uses of nonparametric methods are in those instances where
the parameters of the subject population are unknown.  I remember your
confusion on this point, the last time this topic arose.  Since you
obviously haven't read the experimental design book I recommended at that
time, and also, since you live in a major urban area, with a number of
universities, how about this:  Why don't you find a statistician with a
Ph.D. from a *real* university (not one of those 'alternate' places) and
ask *her* to explain the difference between parametric and nonparametric
statistics...it would save us all a lot of bandwidth.  Also, as I said at
the end of our last discussion, I will not debate this topic with you
until you have a coherent grasp of the fundamentals.  You may rant as long
as you wish, but please do *not* expect me to respond.  Oh, and for the
record, since I'm taking a year off from grad school, I *am* one of the
corporate planners for a small startup company.  What was it you say you
do, again?

I've seen cats 'play attack' other cats, but I've never seen one attack
another unprovoked..
