Only two more years until we get the Republican variant on

the changes with parties is anything more than cosmetic. They
are both after our rights, simply in different areas. The more
we switch parties in control the faster we lose them — rather
the faster it becomes intolerable and we have to do something
drastic to get them back.

required a concerted effort by hundreds of people sending even

must send many birthday greetings.

There is more to using encryption than simply using it.
Consider if you send 50 clear messages a week and one encrypted.
That certainly narrows down the problem and the decision on where

Subject: BIG BANG VARIATION

JH> MG> It hypothesizes it to be nothing in particular. It only
JH> MG> only a search for additional mass to cause the forms and
JH> MG> rotation rates of galaxies that we observed.

JH> The topic was expansion of the universe and possible
JH> eventual collapse.
JH>
JH> Yours is a very stingy answer from one who purports to have
JH> a degree in physics. Granted there are many branches of
JH> physics, but whatever branch is yours you ought to be able
JH> to do better than this. I am not a physicist and I can do
JH> better myself! Here goes…
JH>
JH> We observe the rate at which far-away galaxies are receding
JH> and from this we have determined the rate of expansion of
JH> the universe. IOW, we have determined the velocity of
JH> expansion.
JH>
JH> Now… if there is to be an eventual collapse this velocity
JH> must be less than the “escape velocity” required for all
JH> matter in the universe to escape the mutual attraction of
JH> all other matter due to gravity.

JH> The term missing from the equation is the total mass of the
JH> universe.

Missing from the measurements (observation) is an change in
the expansion, that is, if there is ever to be a collapse (which
is required by nothing) then there has to be a rate of slowing
down. Even if there is no collapse in the future there still has
to be some slowing down IF the universe has a significant amount
of mass in it compared to its size.

I do not know the actual measured results but over the last
fifty years and to the precision of our ability to measure there
has been exactly zero observed decrease in the velocity of
expansion. That indicates the mass of the universe is trivial.

However, you have not addressed the most serious reason why
there is a search for missing mass. There is no way to explain
the structure of the galaxies we observe unless they are from 10
to 100 times more massive than the stars we can observe suggest.
That includes our own galaxy.

Consider a spiral galaxy such as our that has been around
for billions of years. There is a distinct spiral structure.
Yet the rate of rotation for each star varies with distance from
the center. It is like discovering the planets in our solar
system have maintained an identifiable spiral for billions of
years. Yet there is no such structure.

That there is such a structure in galaxies is completely
unexplainable without that missing mass.

Now that as a layman you have taken over the discussion how
did you miss the most critical question, that galaxies as we know
them can not exist as they are by everything we know?

JH> Scientists have somehow come up with a working value for
JH> the total mass of observable matter, stars, gases within
JH> and between galaxies, all matter readily observable or
JH> detectable.
JH>
JH> They call this ‘bright matter” as a term of convenience.
JH>
JH> They do not see enough “bright” matter to cause an eventual
JH> collapse.

By a factor of 100 or more.

JH> What is now sought is the total mass of “dark matter,”
JH> matter not so readily observable. This is the factor in
JH> the equation (actually merely a part of the total mass)
JH> which can tip the balance toward eventual collapse.

No one knows what this dark matter might consist of.

JH> Neutrinos are a very, very numerous form of fairly dark
JH> matter, and are included as such. Again you are reminded
JH> that “dark matter” is a term of convenience, but it is one
JH> which is used by physicists themselves.

All particles are completely dark by definition. As for
your reminder I am well aware of what is really meant by the
term.

JH> Our present high energy physics model of matter and the
JH> universe predicts there are an incredible number of
JH> assorted types of neutrinos zinging about.

Six types actually of which two might have mass but that has
largely been abandoned after the one Russian report of mass that
could not be duplicated. In absence of that measurement,
neutrinos have zero mass as has been the evidence since they were
first discovered.

JH> This is no longer thought to be the case, although the
JH> mass, if present, is incredibly small.

You missed the one measurement being discarded.

JH> But there are so many neutrinos that it only requires
JH> assigning a very tiny mass to each to tip the balance as
JH> far as total mass in the universe and thus the difference
JH> between eternal expansion and eventual collapse.

Save there is no measurable decrease in the rate of
expansion.

JH> Again… the neutrinos in question, and any other matter
JH> existing, but not yet readily detectible is conveniently
JH> called “dark matter.”

And you would discard the possibility that it might be all
the billions of first generation stars? Why? You do know what
first generation stars are do you not? They were the most likely
candidates but calculations show they would have only 1% of the
mass needed. Adding in the concentrations of hydrogen that did
not become massive enough to become stars gets us up to about 3%
of what is required.

JH> Now, please provide specific refutation, without quibbling,
JH> defining all terms used if they seem to differ from my
JH> usage, no guile, no double-speak, etc. I have written in
JH> the fragmented paragraphed style above to invite comment on
JH> each section as you might choose.

I am not interested in refutation only in clearing up the
false assumptions you are making and in pointing out what you
have overlooked which are the current direction of the research.
I also find it interesting you have missed the most serious
scientific interest in missing mass, that galaxies as we observe
them can not exist if our knowledge of gravity is correct.

Whether or not the universe ever collapses is trivial
compared to that concern.

Subject: THE GOLD WATCH

The Gold Watch
by
Matt Giwer (c) 1994 <9/30>

Florida has, or rather had, an “impact fee” of $295 for cars
brought into the state from another state. The State Supreme
Court found this fee to be unconstitutional and the money
refunded. And immediately the state claimed it would harm
education if the money had to be refunded.
Ah, the Gold Watch approach. It is not an obvious Gold
Watch so let me go a step further. When the state was promoting
the lottery the deal was that the revenues would go to schools.
As soon as there was a lottery and the revenues started coming in
the state took the school budget, subtracted lottery revenues and
appropriated the difference.
Rather than the implication that the lottery would be over
and above the minimum budget the schools got no more and other
projects were funded. These are unrelated to education. Were
the people had by the politicians? Is the bear Catholic?
Fine but now that the threat of having to refund the fees,
$295 million or so, the state is saying what? You have three
seconds to guess. Time is up. The schools will be harmed. If
you did not guess that you need to go back to square one in your
knowledge of politics.
The state Supreme Court decision was news on the 28th as was
the state claim that it would harm the schools. On the 29th in
the morning there were the first statements from the schools as
to the harm. By the evening news on the 29th there were human
interest stories as to a teacher having $150 to to spend “perhaps
to help this immigrant child learn English.” Are there any tears
no jerking out there?
Look at the genesis of school funding as outlined above.
Sounds to me that if the state has to refund the unconstitutional
impact fees that it is the other programs that will suffer and
not the schools. That is of course if the politicians are
telling the truth.
But then the media will seek out the truth? Just how much
did you pay for that bridge?
Yes, I am in Florida but this does not apply only to
Florida. Dozens of states pushed the lottery on the basis of an
aid to education and they all pulled the same trick of defunding
the schools from general revenues by the amount of lottery
revenues. This is the first case of a reversal of the gambit and
I point out the fraud the politicians and the lap dog media will
perpetrate upon the state.
I have written this up on the Federal level more than once
and I have included the media in the accusation at that level. I
post here the natural tendency of the media to support the
government at the state level also. When the government lies to
us the “watchdog” media will swear to it.
This is just one more example of the scam used to raise
taxes despite the plain will of the people. The willingness of
the voters to believe in something for nothing is possible to
have something for nothing is not to be forgotten but neither is
a politician promising something for nothing.
In any event here is one more example of the short term
nature of any political promise and the use of that promise
against the people. This may be a trivial example but an
illustrative example. Look for it coming to a state near you
soon.

Subject: The Basis of Law

The Basis of Law
by
Matt Giwer (c) 1994 <10/4>

In determining what is a just and proper law a Constitution
is not required. That is an incumbrance the people of the
states put upon the have put upon the federal and state
constitutions based upon a well learned distrust of government.
There is another way to approach the passage of laws that does
not need guidelines.
Laws (or rules or traditions depending upon size) are only
established by groups of people. It is obvious the only place
laws are needed are when there are groups of people. And as with
the rules of a family the purpose of laws is to create and
preserve the order of society.
The preservation of order as the basis for law is certainly
a solid basis. If the society is not preserved then the benefits
of that society can not continue. And certainly people must
think there are benefits else they would leave the society.
The question arises as to how much order is required for
preservation. Obviously there are societies where everything not
prescribed is proscribed but these tend to dissolve in some form
of revolution. Societies that are under ordered dissolve into
chaos.
Thus there is both a minimum and maximum level of ordering
that will preserve a society. Thus as long as a society falls
within these bounds it will continue and its laws have a sound
basis.
There can be laws which are not related to the preservation
of society. What of them? Generally these are laws which in
some manner or other are perceived as doing some good but have no
direct relation to the preservation of society.
For example, a law against murder will help preserve the
society as who would choose to live in a society with murder or
put up with it. A zoning law certainly has no impact upon the
preservation of society. And thus the question, does a society
have an interest in laws having nothing to do with the
preservation of society?
Laws which clearly preserve society may work a hardship upon
some but that hardship is clearly the price of membership in that
society even if it should benefit some others. A law which
simply makes things “nicer” or “better” in the opinion of some is
clearly a law for their benefit without regard to the hardship it
works upon others. There is clearly no reason to accept the
hardship; merely to tolerate it at best.
Of course if we are talking of a monarchy or dictatorship
there is little question of who the “better” laws benefit, those
who rule the country. When it comes a society that has
specifically created the government it becomes a question as to
the validity of one group passing or obtaining a law to its own
benefit at the expense of another group. It is not clear such a
government differs from a band of random thieves save it is
acting under the color of government.
This abhorrence of a pure democracy by those who founded this
country was one of the reasons for the elaborate safeguards that
were built into our US Constitution to prevent exactly that.
There was the specific delegation of powers to the government and
if it was not clear enough the 10th amendment was added to say in
a polite manner, and that means ONLY those powers, dummy.
In order to minimize the chances of there being a private
agreement to subvert the limitations set out in the Constitution
it established three independent branches of government in the
belief they would be be at each other’s throats and keep any one
from dominating the government. It was not their intention that
political parties should subvert that separation of powers.
Consider a group of people carefully crafting three separate
and equal branches of government as a means of keeping that
government under control. Imagine their response to a situation
where the mood of many in the country and among many elected
officials to the idea that if one party controls the Executive
and Legislative branches it should pack the Judicial Branch and
pass all the legislation it wishes.
They included the power of the states to not only elect the
president and appoint Senators to give the states the power
independently limit the power and direction of the federal
government. The rise of political parties subverted both
controls.
As there arose two parties effectively sharing the power of
government the Electoral College election of the President as
members of the College are appointed by the parties. And once
there were parties were established the appointment of Senators
by the state directly mirrored the popular vote. Thus the direct
election of Senators can be seen as progressive as compared to
direct election of the President which we do not have as both
always mirror the political parties.
Thus in this country we have lost sight of the concept of
the minimum laws necessary for survival of the our country and
have embraced a policy of promoting the advancement of the
parties. That we do not see them jackbooting around giving
orders does not change the fact. It is difficult to impossible
to find a long term politician that is not rich beyond the
possibilities of their official income. If they had personal or
family money it is certainly impossible to explain their wealth.
And the citizens, aligned by party, ignore the interests of
the country and vote for their party like they root for their
football team. It is a fine rallying cry but when important
decisions are before the country, a decision between a necessary
law and an unnecessary law, support is along party lines, not
country lines.
This may appear a harsh or improper judgement but there is
no way to justify that the best person for a government job
appointment just happens to always have the right party loyalty.
No one can make the case Janet Reno is other than the third best,
democrat woman for the job of Attorney General.
The party system is not only the reason the country has lost
sight of the concept of necessary laws only but also of the
ability to restrain itself from unnecessary laws. The ultimate
fate of the country under such a system appears to me to be the
same as that of a monarchy or dictatorship that has created law
for its own benefit. At some point there will be too much
imposed order and there will be dissolution in rebellion.
That is unfortunate.

country was one of the reasons for the elaborate safeguards that
were built into our US Constitution to prevent exactly that.
There was the specific delegation of powers to the government and
if it was not clear enough the 10th amendment was added to say in
a polite manner, and that means ONLY those powers, dummy.
In order to minimize the chances of there being a private
agreement to subvert the limitations set out in the Constitution
it established three independent branches of government in the
belief they would be be at each other’s throats and keep any one
from dominating the government. It was not their intention that
political parties should subvert that separation of powers.
Consider a group of people carefully crafting three separate
and equal branches of government as a means of keeping that
government under control. Imagine their response to a situation
where the mood of many in the country and among many elected
officials to the idea that if one party controls the Executive
and Legislative branches it should pack the Judicial Branch and
pass all the legislation it wishes.
They included the power of the states to not only elect the
president and appoint Senators to give the states the power
independently limit the power and direction of the federal
government. The rise of political parties subverted both
controls.
As there arose two parties effectively sharing the power of
government the Electoral College election of the President as
members of the College are appointed by the parties. And once
there were parties were established the appointment of Senators
by the state directly mirrored the popular vote. Thus the direct
election of Senators can be seen as progressive as compared to
direct election of the President which we do not have as both
always mirror the political parties.
Thus in this country we have lost sight of the concept of
the minimum laws necessary for survival of the our country and
have embraced a policy of promoting the advancement of the
parties. That we do not see them jackbooting around giving
orders does not change the fact. It is difficult to impossible
to find a long term politician that is not rich beyond the
possibilities of their official income. If they had personal or
family money it is certainly impossible to explain their wealth.
And the citizens, aligned by party, ignore the interests of
the country and vote for their party like they root for their
football team. It is a fine rallying cry but when important
decisions are before the country, a decision between a necessary
law and an unnecessary law, support is along party lines, not
country lines.
This may appear a harsh or improper judgement but there is
no way to justify that the best person for a government job
appointment just happens to always have the right party loyalty.
No one can make the case Janet Reno is other than the third best,
democrat woman for the job of Attorney General.
The party system is not only the reason the country has lost
sight of the concept of necessary laws only but also of the
ability to restrain itself from unnecessary laws. The ultimate
fate of the country under such a system appears to me to be the
same as that of a monarchy or dictatorship that has created law
for its own benefit. At some point there will be too much
imposed order and there will be dissolution in rebellion.
That is unfortunate.

If you look at the energetics of a chemical reaction you

greatly in excess of what can be stored in an atom or molecule.
That much energy would prevent the formation of a molecule.

The quantum fluctuation energy level is another matter. It
is all a matter of statistics. NO energy level is impermissible.
In our universe with the form of time we have it is simply that
the chance of it happening in this universe is vanishingly small
compared to the present age of the universe.

However, prior to there being time it is a certainty that it
will happen. That is difficult to imagine so presume there was
time and nothing only. As there was no one around with a stop
watch a near infinite amount of time could have passed before it
happened for our universe.

Our measurements of radioactive decay over roughly the same
time span have established universal constants are not changing
to a level of accuracy as to make the question immaterial. That
is, good for billions of years worth of no change that would be
significant to anything we are using today in science or
engineering.

You may not be aware that these shifts done to parts per
billion or better. When one can say “if it exists then it is
less than” some very small number it can be directly related to
the amount of mass in the extent of the universe as we can
observe it.

This means the measurements are good enough to say IF
contraction is going to happen then it will be long after heat
death. At that point it is hardly more than idle speculation as
it can not effect anything we are dealing with today.

You MUST
JH> know the actual measured results and the error limits on

JH> any meaning whatsoever! You admit you do not know them, so
JH> you are either unaware of the need to assure your
JH> measurements are accurate, precise and above the noise

The error limits are as in saying, If happening then less
than. It is like saying IF there is some substance in your
drinking water and it is tested for and not found then, IF it is
present then it is less than x parts per Xillion. Parts per
billion are common these days. That is the confidence level of
interest.

This is a different concept than error limits. To have
plural limits you have to have a positive measurement to say plus
or minus error bounds. In this case we have the, it may be so
small as to be beyond our ability to measure and our limits to
measure are …

This further brings up the point that there is NO necessary
reason to expect the universe to contract. It is a only a
possibility people have considered. The search for the fifth
force and tachyons had a basis in measurement and theory
respectively. The idea of contraction comes from no observation
or theory. It is no more than speculation nor any different than
suggesting the universe might start blinking.

JH> MG> I am not interested in refutation only in clearing up the

JH> You deny what I say and claim a degree in physics, and
JH> don’t feel an obligation to provide specific refutation?
JH> OK, so be it, but you will understand when I ignore most of
JH> what you say.

There is no basis for refutation. The answer is the same as
to creationists, there is no evidence for creation and there is
no evidence for any contraction. Were there evidence or theory
that might suggest contraction then that would have to be
addressed. In this case there is nothing to address. You are
effectively saying, prove it can’t happen.

JH> MG> Whether or not the universe ever collapses is trivial
JH> MG> compared to that concern.

JH> Quite so, but it was NOT the topic of discussion, eventual

In that regard, provide reason in observation or theory to

There goes your fantasy life again. There was no danger and

They are not “wives unless they is a legal marriage. And of

you would like to provide evidence to the contrary from a

JJ> MG> Why would you not present a verifiable source of evidence

JJ> Mainly because I don’t remember the names of those who were

Of course you can not remember as there is no such source.

JJ> It was assumed. They have them on all their case subjects was my

In other words you assume what does not exist and then

JJ> MG> Because you do not believe the testimony of prosecution
JJ> MG> witnesses is a much better reason.

JJ> I have yet to see any testimony. All I have heard is
JJ> “Prosecution says” and stuff like that.

What you should have read were the postings of the newspaper

the trial.

JJ> JJ> Again, it might have been UNTILL they fired on the BATF.

JJ> MG> YOU originally stated they came to arrest Koresh. You are
JJ> MG> now admitting your original statement was not true.

JJ> No I’m not. I’m allowing the remote possibility thet you
JJ> were right. EITHER way madman koresh and his wacko’s had
JJ> no rights firing on the agents.

As YOU KNOW, the BATF came running out of the horse trailers
throwing grenades into the house and shooting the dogs. That
much is prosecution testimony. It was also prosecution testimony
that Koresh an two other people appeared at the door unarmed.

As you also know the jury found they were provoked by the
BATF into shooting at the BATF.

Tell me, why do you think the Davidians were required to put
up with grenades being tossed into their home and their pets
being slaughtered by people who had not announced their
possession of a warrant? Without a warrant they are called
targets. But you know that.

JJ> The key point is he knowingly fired on federal officers.

It makes no difference what they were. Until they announced
they had a warrant they had no right to do anything. Without
that announcement they had no protection from being shot. As you
know they did NOT announce they had a warrant and had NO plans to
do so.

JJ> MG> When a transcript is prepared I will get a copy of it. I
JJ> MG> will even post where to get a copy for everyone. I presume
JJ> MG> you will read it then.

JJ> Oh, I’ll read it…

JJ> MG> When was the last time you voted on the BATF policy to

JJ> What did you expect them to do?

Knock on the door. Give them a call first. Take Koresh up
on his offer to come out and look at his gun purchases. At the
minimum I would have expected them to announce they had a
warrant. That would take a bullhorn at most. They did none of
that.

JJ> There was a potential for violent resistance.

Crap. EVERY traffic stop is potentially dangerous.

Only a fool would go into an armed and

Subject: To Err is Required

To Err is Required
by
Matt Giwer (c) 1994 <10/09>

In our system of government and law we hold to many
principles in its execution. When it comes to criminal matters
where there are penalties involving the loss of liberty if not
life itself, we hold one to be above all else. It is better for
the guilty to go free than for the innocent to be punished
wrongfully.
This principle required that if there is to be an error in
judgement that it be in favor of the least harm, that is,
innocence. This is a reasonable principle. If there is a
question of guilt or innocence then innocence is the proper
finding.
Similarly we have enumerated rights and as citizens we have
charged our government with protecting those rights. Those
rights are as fundamental as our need to be protected from the
power of the state gaining a conviction of the innocent. Thus it
would appear equally prudent, when there comes a question as to a
right or the extent of that right that there be a similar error
in favor of that right.
Thus if there is a question of the right to free speech and
the government’s obligation to protect that right then it is
clear the government itself, in light of its obligation to
protect that right, is required to start with the assumption that
the question must be decided in the favor of that right lacking
overwhelming government interest an alternate interpretation.
Is this what we have? No, it is the opposite of what we
have. The Supreme Court has held that if a person does not
vigorously speak of a his rights at all points he has lost them.
That is hardly erring on the side of the government’s obligation
to protect our specified rights.
In addition the sequence of the infringement of our rights
has followed from a progression of exceedingly legalistic
convolutions that only a lawyer could love. When the enumerated
right is freedom from warrantless searches and seizures the
courts have found it a challenge to refine what that really
means. In cars it is down to the degree of what might be plain
view, in or out of a bag, and whether or not that bag is properly
sealed.
Were there error on the side of the protected right then all
but waving the item out the car window would be protected. Such
is not the form of our legal system.
Our legal system is on the side of meticulously defining via
court precedent only the exact limits of our protections. There
is no presumption that the rights exist. The presumption is that
they were defined in the minds of the framers of the Constitution
and must be refined by the courts.
This ignores on significant point. The Framers were of the
mind of those who declared our independence and they held …

We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all
Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator
with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life,
Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness — That to secure these
Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just
Powers from the Consent of the Governed,

The concept of government is clearly to protect the rights
of men. This brings up a larger issue. That the same government
charged with protecting those rights has assumed an adversarial
role in in limiting those rights by intellectual mayhem. It has
declined to fulfill its defensive roll in the protection of those
rights.
I grant executing the law and defending rights at the same
time is a difficult position. That is why the requirement to err
on the side of the right BY THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH not by the
Judicial Branch is essential. That is no where in evidence.
What we have is a government with the largest and most
active branch that is actively hostile to our rights. The
Executive Branch works to limit those rights contrary to its
constituted obligation. I see no reason to believe this was the
government that was conceived and constituted for this country.
There is no reason to permit it to continue.

Subject: Kuwait, 9 Oct 94

Kuwait, 9 October 1994
by
Matt Giwer (c) 1994 <10/9>

Whatever Iraq is up to it is apparently not a lightning
strike. It has given up a 24 hour window in which it could have
moved into Kuwait with no effective opposition. Rather it has
taken the time to mass (lack of continuous satellite coverage
still hinders a better description than “massing”) what is now
estimated to be 60,000 Republican Guard troops. They are 12
miles from the Kuwaiti border, 2 miles outside the 10 mile wide
demilitarized zone. (Those distances are English conversions of
metric, 20 km for the DMZ. Expect variations in the numbers you
hear.)
Now the US is moving the carrier George Washington into the
area and, although still a long flight, its planes are in
striking distance of any Iraqi advance. Had Iraq an air defense
capability there might still be time.
The US ground response is anemic to say the least. It is
limited to 2,000 Marines and 4,000 Army, RDF. They have been
ordered to go; there are no press reports of their having left as
of 11:00 am today. That still gives Iraq 24 hours to move before
facing serious resistance.
Our troops will arrive (the army at least) to operate tanks
that are prepositioned outside of Kuwait City. If Iraq can move
fast enough and secure those tanks they have a leg up on retaking
Kuwait.
A British frigate are whose relevant armament is surface to
air missiles. Also several US Hawk surface to air batteries have
been moved from Saudi to Kuwait. It is not apparent what air
assets Iraq still possesses that warrant these actions.
Another development is the “spontaneous” arrival of up to
20,000 nomads described by Iraq as people forced out of Kuwait
generations ago. They too are “massing” outside the DMZ but it
convenient to say they are pitching tent. What part they will
play in Iraq’s plan is not apparent at the moment. It is worth
remembering Iraq sponsored a peace group inside of its defenses
on the Kuwaiti border last time around. (CNN name these people
“bedoons.” Expect a re-run of the “expert” coverage of the
region we received last time.)
On the home front the President is rephrasing the statements
he made to Haiti. His staff is going on talk shows and giving
interviews repeating the same “sound bites” and assuring the
country and the world of the President’s resolve.
The message is “the US is not preoccupied with Haiti.” I
will note this theme appears to assume Iraq somehow believes
Haiti is a Caribbean superpower. It would appear the
administration is in fact the only group impressed with its
actions in Haiti.
The UN is posturing as usual with its expression of “grave
concern” and the like that would impress neither a five year old
nor anyone who observed the UN contribution to the first Gulf
War.
It is now dark in the Middle East and the IR satellite is
not in place as yet. Keep in mind the time zone differences when
listening to the news. Some one on Face the Nation said he just
returned from the Kuwait / Iraq border along with stock footage
of daylight something or other, given the fires in the distance
most likely from the last war.

It is the other way around. Those who bother to say
anything are 20 to 1 complimenting these articles. On organizing
nine months production I found enough material for eight issues.
A newsletter was obvious. If that succeeds, after the first year
there will be enough material for a book. It all adds adds.
Were there a market for a simple collection of the articles,
there is enough material for a book right now.

Despite your namesake handle, you are not paying attention.
I know of four directly just from the BBSs. I have read

suggested. You might also try GUNTALK run by the NRA.

The entire militia effort is premature and most realize
that. Organized military effort is the last step in an
insurgency. That they are happening at all is the tip of the
iceberg. Just after Waco an entire new class of people took an
interest in collecting virus programs; they said they considered
them weapons. You should also follow the interest in PGP and
other forms of secure communications. Those who are interested
are interested for a reason. There are many more than the usual
collection of paranoids.

Bush declared the mission to be feeding people.

Clinton lost control of the situation and our military got
involved in a search and destroy operation against the man now
the head of Somalia. It was that CHANGE of mission that Clinton
refused to support with the equipment needed to accomplish it.
You will remember the mission failed.

simply one more bit of evidence Reno is psychotic.

Opposed to that is the FBI hostage manual saying to wait it
out unless there is imminent danger to life. Thus the wrongful

minimize loss of life. The result of violating that policy is
the substance of a wrongful death suit.

I am often amazed how feeble minded the anti-gun types truly

“Do not point at what you do not intend to kill.”

Anyone pointing a gun at anyone else is intending to kill.
In that case it is certainly the most safe to have someone so

have no idea what the trigger is for.

In the time periods I have given the phenomena could NOT be

Are you trying to play dumb on me?

FS> MG> It must be wonderful for you to live in a world of the

FS> MG> you are unable to understand it.

FS> Huh? There are a *lot* of things which I don’t understand.
FS> It isn’t *that* which makes them supernatural. Be
FS> reasonable …

You said, “can not be explained by natural law.” As
knowledge of natural law is always increasing the bounds of what
you view as supernatural are always receding. If it depended
upon your ability to understand, as you insist it does with the
Big Bang, then much that is explained by natural law remains
supernatural.

That is the consequence of your position.

FS> MG> It is also interesting that you would hold to a belief the
FS> MG> supernatural being what you can not understand when you can
FS> MG> see, the supernatural becoming natural every day by
FS> MG> learning and research.

FS> What you say is utterly impossible. It’s like saying black
FS> becomes white by learning and research. Black is black.
FS> White is white. Natural is natural. Supernatural is
FS> supernatural.

Such a trivial example. Black does become white when all
brighter light sources are excluded. That is the old trick of
looking very closely at black velvet while lighting only the part
looked at. It is very white. It sort of gets the idea across to
gradeschoolers.

You have stated the ability to explain separates the two
whereas the ability to explain constantly increases. Thus in
time the supernatural must decrease.

FS> MG> I do not see how you can reconcile any idea of supernatural
FS> MG> when what is supernatural can be converted to natural by
FS> MG> scientists. Your god doesn’t have much going for it, does
FS> MG> it?

What there may be is pure speculation. Anyone can accept

As we already travel through space I do not see that as much

speculation to suggest backward travel may one day be reduced to
engineering practice.

There is not much left to control these days. Most
everything can be done, the problem is only the engineering.

All we need is to get a handle on viral diseases; we have
already created life.

How could
EB> one say that we are beyond a doubt the first to have done
EB> so when that time comes, if ever?

Who cares? We have only been at real science to any extent
for barely 400 years and we have most of the big problems
answered. 400 more years should icing the cake. As it will take
6000 years to double recorded human history it is trivial to
expect miracles, not only expect them but to schedule them, like
the Manhattan Project.

The size and age (as we
EB> calculate) of the universe and the number of galaxies and
EB> stars in those galaxies should be enough to show that we
EB> may not be alone and that all that we are doing now and
EB> will do in the future may have already been done by others.

That does bring up the “where are they?” question. Why no
signs of their existence? It is a disturbing question if one
seriously considers it. Either the others are hiding their
existence from us, there are ultimate limits to control of the
universe, or we are alone. It is quite a strange universe we
live in.

EB> The universe is bilions of years old. Add 1 million years
EB> to our cycle of achievment and where do you think we would

EB> we now take for granted and that we depend on so much in
EB> our daily lives has come to pass in the last 100 years.
EB>
EB> Add that 1 million years and imagine where we could be now.

That many years is hardly necessary to appear as gods.
Consider the gun among primitives without the trappings of
fallability Hollywood puts on it. More simply, go back to Rome
with a supply of swords made of modern steel and they could be
sold for enough to give one a life of luxury.

RH> -> 2/3rd to propose, 3/4 to ratify.

RH> My mistake.

I posted not so much to point out a mistake as to have an
opportunity to make this follow up point.

Getting a 2/3rds majority in Congress or from the states for
a Concon is not a trivial matter. In Congress it takes a lot of
organization to get 2/3rds in one vote. With the states for the
Concon states have voted for and withdrawn their approval (open
to SC determination at this point) over years.

That the states might give 3/4 approval IF they were all
required to vote on one day is negligable and we might not have
even the Bill of Rights were that a requirement. That supporters
in a state can orchestrate a positive vote for an amendment as is
done in Congress in proposing an amendment over a period of
years, if not forever depending upon the conditions on the
approval process or the lack of same, is perhaps the only reason
we have amendments to our Constitution.

This is one of the reasons why social engineering by
“regulation” rather than prohibition is so popular. Consider how
easy it was to make the case for universal franchise for 18 years
olds based upon military service. Consider how impossible it
would have been to prohibit them from drinking at 18 given the
same argument of military service.

As it stands amending the Constitution is as much a
political art form as passing a law such as the Crime Bill. It
has little to do with the will of the people. And that is by
design, not by chance.

You make a strange post, claiming there is evidence when

so.

WC> KB> Actually, you’ve got it backwards again. Science deals

WC> No, the people who gather scientific data and

WC> they’re adults with a well defined core of beliefs.

That statement makes you a liar.

WC> As for JESUS, HIS activities were observed and

As does this statement make you a liar. You are an active
sinner with no right to consider yourself a Christian.

Why do you actively neglect the evidence

There is no evidence in the scriptures, liar.

Also, why do you blindly

There are none, liar.

WC> Natural selection cannot explain how inorganic

Again, you are a liar to suggest evolution deals with the
origins of life.

Additionally, scientific

To suggest there is a biblical model is also a lie, liar.

Faith is clearly a factor

Faith in the stories of ignorant, goat-herding tribesmen
well describes you lying Christians.

WC> You assume too much! Many people have been exposed to the

JJ> MG> There are used guns.

JJ> Matt, Don’t know about the price of firearms in Florida,
JJ> but even used weapons aren’t exactly cheap in Oklahoma..

No more expensive than a decent evening out for two. Less
than two tickets to a Springsteen “concert.” (One of those five
shot .22 LR derringers is on the order of one ticket.) Early
this year I saw a trade go down on a Dan Wesson .38 and 200MB
drive.

What do you consider expensive? What is your baseline
comparison? There should be no problem getting a gun for the
equivalent 2-4 months of cable or for women 2-4 new outfits.
Save $25 a month for a year and you can have most any handgun you
want if you don’t mind used.

Have you tried the gun shows or are you sticking with the
shops? Even the shops can have some bargains around here. All
the established gunshops are into the buy/sell/trade mode and the
new ones get established with deep discounts as in $450 vice $750
as I picked up earlier this year.

I am more familiar with Virginia and Potomac Arms / Hunter’s
Haven in Alexandria always had a good selection. .32 and .38 at
good prices were always available with .45 and 9mm most of the
time.

How do you predict the future and know what “can be

that there were physical laws. What are you predicting will
exist in 400 years? And how do you know? Please be specific.

How do you know your present supernatural can not be
explained by natural law or whatever may exist in a few hundred
years?

You are presuming precisely what we understand today is all
there will ever be and more erroneously assuming what we have
today was known in the past.

FS> FS> Huh? There are a *lot* of things which I don’t understand.
FS> FS> It isn’t *that* which makes them supernatural. Be
FS> FS> reasonable …

FS> MG> You said, “can not be explained by natural law.”

FS> And it *can’t* … can it? If so, kindly explain it.
FS> (BTW, Matt, that’s simply a rhetorical statement. I don’t
FS> really expect you to explain the Big Bang.)

Name what cannot be explained by natural law now or forever
in the future. (BTW: I did explain the Big Bang. You are
simply unprepared to understand the explanation. I could suggest
a course of study if you would like to understand the
explanation.)

FS> MG> knowledge of natural law is always increasing the bounds of
FS> MG> what you view as supernatural are always receding. If it
FS> MG> depended upon your ability to understand, as you insist it
FS> MG> does with the Big Bang, then much that is explained by

FS> But I *don’t* claim that natural law or the supernatural
FS> depends upon my ability to understand. There are *many*
FS> things which I don’t understand yet I’m certain that they
FS> all comply with natural laws.

Explain how you know the limitations on what can for all
future time be explained by natural law when scientists do not.

FS> MG> That is the consequence of your position.

FS> Correction: That is the consequence of your *distortion*
FS> of my position.

Your presumption that you can speak of what you do not know.

FS> FS> What you say is utterly impossible. It’s like saying black
FS> FS> becomes white by learning and research. Black is black.
FS> FS> White is white. Natural is natural. Supernatural is
FS> FS> supernatural.

FS> MG> Such a trivial example. Black does become white when all

FS> I could have chosen a better example …

Please do.

FS> MG> You have stated the ability to explain separates the two
FS> MG> whereas the ability to explain constantly increases. Thus
FS> MG> in time the supernatural must decrease.

FS> That’s a example of *faith* in action, isn’t it, Matt? You
FS> assume that what has happened in the past will happen in
FS> the future, isn’t that true?

And upon what else can you base an estimate of the future?
I would certainly hold that assumption is much better than yours;
yours being that you have the infused knowledge to know the
limits of natural law such that you can propound there can always
be things that must be supernatural.

Extrapolation of a series of
FS> events can be dangerous and misleading. It’s true, we *do*
FS> keep learning new things, but there’s no reason to believe
FS> (or to *disbelieve* for that matter) that we’ll understand
FS> the supernatural one day.

Your examples of the supernatural please.

If you dispute that, then point
FS> out even *one* supernatural event in the past which can be
FS> explained today.

I know of no supernatural events ever having occurred.
Perhaps you could list a few for me.

JJ> I thought the reason they paid higher prices was because

I had always thought the reason was that when cars were new
the nobility was still in control of Europe and it was a way to
limit cars to the upper class. Someone came back with a tortured
explanation that was different but it was short on the dates to
support the explanation. At the time cars were getting started
up to say the 1950s Europe had all the oil it needed, the Ploesti
oil fields being a prize of WW II.

In addition the ridiculous taxes are only on gasoline not on
all oil products. Of course once the taxes are entrenched and
being used to pay for something it is trivial to tell the
electorate it will lose its gold watch (schools, police
protection, whatever it holds important) if those taxes are
reduced.

JJ> I can see no logical reason for that type of gas increase,
JJ> or is this Waffles new Idea to pay for the Health care

This is always proposed as a general revenue raising but is
“justified” by dependence upon foreign oil. The lie of that
justification is that it would apply to both domestic and foreign
oil. The only way to make it work to decrease dependence would
be to apply it to foreign oil only.

I won’t argue that the “entire damned government” isn’t over the line,
but the BATF is out of control, and is wantonly reckless. Recently
in St. Louis a BATF raid at 3:30am on a residence left a woman wounded.
It seems that when confronted in the hallway by the near NAKED woman,
who did have a gun, the two agents, who were in full armour and behind
bullet proof shields, had no alternative? but to shoot her! WHAT BS!
To top it all off, the search, which included two other locations
did not produce any contraband or the named suspect. Their only
statement to the media was “He MUST have been tipped off”.

Sound familiar?

I suggest that every time you run across one of BATF’s reckless
blunders, and there are plenty, write your congressmen and include a
copy of the press coverage. They can and should be shutdown.

Were I in a position to make a declaration I would certainly

Until this wanton slaughter stops, not excuses are
acceptable.

In the early 70s Blacks got fed up with cops showing up a
trouble calls and killing everyone in sight. They started
forming bands, all armed, and making trouble calls. They shot
every cop that showed up. After a year of this the cops called a
truce.

There are lessons to be learned from history. That is one
of them.

I point out that Congress recommended they be disbanded and
Reagan said it could not be done.

Therefore we KNOW without question that petition for redress
of grievance is worthless in this case. Therefore we need to
take the necessary actions our government have found itself
incapable of doing. We know from history one method that works.

Issue 1426-Oct 14: “As Gun Week goes to press, representatives of
firearm importers are meeting to decide what action to take in the face
of a virtual halt in all firearms imports into the US that already has
been in place for several months. Officials of the BATF have admitted
to importers that the action was based not on any law but on orders
straight from the White ehouse. Importers had hoped to simply work
quietly with the BATF to solve the problem, but now it appears they
will be forced to go public. Several prominent members of Congress
have agreed to spearhead their effort.”

Does anyone have to ask what is going on here? It is
exactly what I have been saying for years.

This is just another step toward gun confiscation. If
anyone doubted it was coming this direct order from the White
House should remove all doubt.

This government is intent upon dictatorial control of the
United States and before that happens it knows it must disarm the
citizens.

This ban means all importation is federal felony smuggling
from now on.

What to hear the media if the WH is pushed far enough to
have to comment publically?

=====

As the Crime bill “cut off” the source of guns to criminals
Billie Jerk was “forced” to respond to the smuggling of arms to
baby killing gun users. He will display dozens of guns his order
prevented from being smuggled into the country.

The media will publically masturbate over his heroic stance
in the face of the criminal gun lobby.

The NRA will respond with statistics as usual.

Considering all the time we are spending on CA prop 188 is
it not more interesting to deal with 187? Throw the illegals out
of the system? It sounds like great policy to me. If they do
not like it they can go back where they came from and they are
here illegally in the first place.

They are not Americans. They are Mexican citizens with no
business here.

That the federal government won’t do a damn thing about it
and forces California (and every other state to support them) is
ludicrous. And the best opposition to it is to claim everyone
who is against supporting illegals is a racist.

If you are talking HIV vice ARC cases then the average time

the number of carriers was rather accurate. The departure from
accuracy got worse up until two years ago when the method of
estimating was revised based upon the leveling off of the number
of new cases per year.

Wild is not the word for it.

And please include the mixed category of both homosexual and

drug using community.

AND it is not honest to fail to point out that the hetero
cases are some 95+% women who have had sex with bi-sexual or IV
drug using men. That is a different slant that saying
heterosexual. Before the drug users became common cases straight
female cases were all from bi-sexuals save for the blood and

Rather the real point is that prior to this survey Kinsey
had conducted the ONLY formal survey worthy of the name. He
found ONLY 6% gay from a rather selected population. The 10% was
a number pulled out of thin air and NEVER had any valid support.

Of course if you would like to cite a valid survey that
supports 10% please feel free to do so. And please not the one
that said have you ever had a desire for a man and then counted
one time as a hit. Do that and a survey asking the opposite
question would prove a gay is really hetero.

In the interim the actual conclusion of the survey in
question was that 1% of the population is in fact homosexual and
that leaving things as open as possible was the only way to get
to your 2.8% figure.

The Waco Incident
by
Matt Giwer (c) 1994 <10/20>

This is an unpaid advertisement for a videotape everyone
should have and watch and show to anyone who will sit still long
enough to watch. The video is entitled, “The Waco Incident.” It
is available from KPOC-TV, 114 West Central, Ponca City,
Oklahoma, 74601, for $23.45 postpaid.
It tells the clearest and the most damning highlights of the
the Branch Davidians story from the first senseless attack to the
final murders and destruction of the evidence. What is left out
of the story only supports what is told in 100 minutes. It is an
excellent use of 100 minutes.
Those who have been following it are going to see or hear
little new to them. What they will see is the story put together
from beginning to end in one coherent and very viewable piece of
investigative reporting. It is not without its human interest
emotional content mixed with its factual content.
What distinguishes it from other tapes is that it does not
dwell upon the tedious conspiratorial details. Rather it takes
the network tapes at face value and dwells upon what they mean in
context.
For example, it does not try to make a case for how the four
BATF agents died or whether or not they were the ones going into
the second floor window or that they were Clinton bodyguards.
Rather it shows the tapes of the attack with a voice over of the
Branch Davidian 911 call that happened at the same time and lets
the viewer judge who is responsible for what.
It does not pull punches in any respect. When the
description is murder it uses the word murder. It does not use
death. It does not use the passive voice. In doing so it uses
these terms with reference to supportable points without going
into the details. It is the kind of blunt talk the rare
references in the mainstream media couch in non-judgmental
terms.
For example, it uses as a point of departure the known and
established effects of CS gas and its burn products without
digressing into “proving” them. The fact that the products upon
heating are hydrogen cyanide, hydrogen chloride and carbon
monoxide are matter of factly with the manufacturer as the source
of the information. It clearly points out the case of autopsy
reports listing the cause of death as smoke inhalation simply
neglects to mention what kind of smoke.
It does a matter of fact interview with a retired army
helicopter pilot who was recalled to active duty solely for the
purpose of participating in the BATF with his statement he was
sworn to secrecy regarding what happened in the attack. Why him?
It is unstated other than that he is a Vietnam veteran and the
tactic in Vietnam was to initiate an attack with helo fire into
the roof of a building prior to the ground attack. You pick a
reason, you can hear his own words.
Following this it carries a taped interview with the
Commanding Officer of Fort Hood recounting the reporters being
stonewalled by the government and pointing out that he is
stonewalling them. In this case the stonewalling is specifically
the criminal use of the military while the Commanding Officer
reiterates that he follows the law.
From the reference to the statements of three Texas judges
that the warrant does not satisfy the requirements for such a
warrant to the murderous deviation from the final attack plan the
tape is damning to the government.
There are no exaggerations here. There are no conspiracies
here. There is nothing you are asked to believe that is beyond
what is stated and shown. It is clear, it is factual, it is all
supported directly or by passing reference.
Regarding its value compared to the other tapes. I had
shown one of them to a person who knew little of the events at
Waco. That conspiracy tape made little impression. This one
elicited the comment, “I didn’t understand what it was all about
before.” Now she wants us to visit Waco and where the survivors
are imprisoned and conduct interviews.
If you you want to see it all in one place, if you want
others to see it, this is the tape to have. If you have local
talk show people who have not seen it, lend them your copy, buy
them a copy of their own. Above all, advertise it. Let people
know it exists.

Haiti, Clinton’s Playpen
by
Matt Giwer (c) 1994 <10/1>

I have refrained for two weeks from commenting upon the
unnecessary and unwarranted invasion of Haiti. I have done this
to give President Clinton a chance to get his act act together on
the Island. I am certain he appreciates the breathing space.
This is called Operation Restore Democracy. In the two
weeks it appears better named Operation Cry Havoc. Judging only
by an obviously free press before and after the invasion the
deaths have obviously increased.
Added to the deaths have been looting, rioting and general
mayhem. And in this US forces have more or less stood by to
watch. It is obvious the invasion triggered this increase in the
violence in Haiti and equally obvious the troops directed by the
President are doing nothing about it.
I have not kept a daily tally but my strong impression is
that the violence is increasing daily. Also there appear to be
two partisan types of violence, the deaths of Aristide supporters
and looting by Aristide supporters. I do not wish to be
misunderstood here, there is no connection between the looting
and legitimate shooting looters.
The acceleration of violence due to the US intervention
appears to be causing a break down in Haitian society. Of course
I did see some Congressman on the CBS Evening News respond to a
question on violence that he didn’t see any. The CBS reporter
found quite a bit of it. When asked if he thought the US could
have done something about it (some bludgeoning deaths and
injuries) he pointed out there were US tanks only two blocks
away.
But then one of the justifications for sending troops that
was repeated even after General Cedras agreed to leave was to
prevent the breakdown of the social order. Yet there is not the
slightest evidence the US is doing one thing to prevent it.
There is every evidence the US has caused it.
I am not ready to declare I was correct that the invasion
was a bad idea. I am going to point out that as the killings,
lootings, and rioting increase that if and when the US moves to
prevent further social breakdown that our troops will be required
to kill more people to do it. That will make more enemies for
the US. The more enemies the troops create the more members of
the insurgency, the more people will carry that hatred to their
graves with their actions.
Had there been a rational plan the first step would have
gone as planned, to secure strategic locations. The second did
not occur, take control of the government. The third step would
have been to establish martial law. The failure to implement the
second and third is inexcusable.
This was an invasion. It is an occupation. It is being
treated as a training exercise. Funny, I remember calling it
that. I did make the mistake of saying it would be with
bullets. As it is they might as well be disarmed.
Once committed to a course of action it is incumbent upon
the man in charge to act in accordance with that course of
action. The US clearly is not doing so.
In failing to do so the US has increased the loss of life.
The US is going to start being the cause of more loss of life in
restoring order. And there was no reason to have let that order
slip away in the first place.
Of course slip away is hardly the word for it. It was
foreseeable to the point where it was an announced objective of
the invasion. That it has been let happen can not be explained
by anything other than it was only rhetoric and never part of the
plan in the first place.
In other words, the famous “nothing speech” of President
Clinton to justify contained one more lie, that the occupation
would preserve the social order. He said it only. He had no
intention nor were there any plans to do so. We were sold
another bill of goods.
This man may or may not loathe the military. He has
absolutely no conception of what it means to use the military.
He appears to believe the way to do it is the same way he gets
votes, make a speech saying it and then the troops will do it.
In any event, it has been two weeks of nothing but events
contrary to the announced intentions and purpose of the
occupation. It is clear that had the US not taken action there
would have been less death and violence than there is now. It is
also clear that the buck stops in the Oval Office and if the
electorate really beliefs it is in control of the government,
those who voted for William Jefferson Blythe Clinton share the
responsibility.

Subject: Haiti, Clinton’s Playpen

Haiti, Clinton’s Playpen
by
Matt Giwer (c) 1994 <10/1>

I have refrained for two weeks from commenting upon the
unnecessary and unwarranted invasion of Haiti. I have done this
to give President Clinton a chance to get his act act together on
the Island. I am certain he appreciates the breathing space.
This is called Operation Restore Democracy. In the two
weeks it appears better named Operation Cry Havoc. Judging only
by an obviously free press before and after the invasion the
deaths have obviously increased.
Added to the deaths have been looting, rioting and general
mayhem. And in this US forces have more or less stood by to
watch. It is obvious the invasion triggered this increase in the
violence in Haiti and equally obvious the troops directed by the
President are doing nothing about it.
I have not kept a daily tally but my strong impression is
that the violence is increasing daily. Also there appear to be
two partisan types of violence, the deaths of Aristide supporters
and looting by Aristide supporters. I do not wish to be
misunderstood here, there is no connection between the looting
and legitimate shooting looters.
The acceleration of violence due to the US intervention
appears to be causing a break down in Haitian society. Of course
I did see some Congressman on the CBS Evening News respond to a
question on violence that he didn’t see any. The CBS reporter
found quite a bit of it. When asked if he thought the US could
have done something about it (some bludgeoning deaths and
injuries) he pointed out there were US tanks only two blocks
away.
But then one of the justifications for sending troops that
was repeated even after General Cedras agreed to leave was to
prevent the breakdown of the social order. Yet there is not the
slightest evidence the US is doing one thing to prevent it.
There is every evidence the US has caused it.
I am not ready to declare I was correct that the invasion
was a bad idea. I am going to point out that as the killings,
lootings, and rioting increase that if and when the US moves to
prevent further social breakdown that our troops will be required
to kill more people to do it. That will make more enemies for
the US. The more enemies the troops create the more members of
the insurgency, the more people will carry that hatred to their
graves with their actions.
Had there been a rational plan the first step would have
gone as planned, to secure strategic locations. The second did
not occur, take control of the government. The third step would
have been to establish martial law. The failure to implement the
second and third is inexcusable.
This was an invasion. It is an occupation. It is being
treated as a training exercise. Funny, I remember calling it
that. I did make the mistake of saying it would be with
bullets. As it is they might as well be disarmed.
Once committed to a course of action it is incumbent upon
the man in charge to act in accordance with that course of
action. The US clearly is not doing so.
In failing to do so the US has increased the loss of life.
The US is going to start being the cause of more loss of life in
restoring order. And there was no reason to have let that order
slip away in the first place.
Of course slip away is hardly the word for it. It was
foreseeable to the point where it was an announced objective of
the invasion. That it has been let happen can not be explained
by anything other than it was only rhetoric and never part of the
plan in the first place.
In other words, the famous “nothing speech” of President
Clinton to justify contained one more lie, that the occupation
would preserve the social order. He said it only. He had no
intention nor were there any plans to do so. We were sold
another bill of goods.
This man may or may not loathe the military. He has
absolutely no conception of what it means to use the military.
He appears to believe the way to do it is the same way he gets
votes, make a speech saying it and then the troops will do it.
In any event, it has been two weeks of nothing but events
contrary to the announced intentions and purpose of the
occupation. It is clear that had the US not taken action there
would have been less death and violence than there is now. It is
also clear that the buck stops in the Oval Office and if the
electorate really beliefs it is in control of the government,
those who voted for William Jefferson Blythe Clinton share the
responsibility.

Subject: REAL VALUE

Although I would greatly appreciate being investigated by
the Securities and Exchange Commission for this message (just to
post a real inside joke to the boards) consider it disclaimed.

In line with my posts on the value of money, I am hereby
creating a futures market in tangible assets. I am now taking
options on any and all commodities. There is only one catch, the
earliest effective date of any option is 15 October 2094.

I suggest everyone will agree guessing what anything might
be worth a century from now is at best a parlor game. The
Econuts will be betting on lumber and air while the technologists
will be trying to quantify the value of information that far
ahead.

Of course I have a couple hedges here. No one reading this
will be alive (save the SEC descendants will try to exhume my
body for prosecution.) But all of us are planning on some form
of asset for the future in some form, insurance, social security,
investments, whatever. They are denominated in dollars in some
manner, whether fixed or variable interest or politically
determined dollars.

We are all making a best guess for the future as to what the
thing will be worth in terms of dollars. Given the uncertainty
of the “thing” it keeps an army of investment counselors
employed. What commodity could dollars possibly be based upon if
there is no agreement as to the value of anything even within our
own lifetimes?

And who was smart enough to switch from US Steel to
MacDonalds ten years ago? Could fast food ever be a better
investment than steel?

ps I am also taking side bets we may or may not be using the
same calendar system a century hence.

If you do then you find even more unpleasant things when you

there to become witnesses. There was an armed confrontation and
the other guy was hit in the finger.

He was arrested for desecration at first and a
methamphetamine lab was found in the house he lived in which lead
to additional charges.

As a result of this incident someone had been shot and the
sheriff phoned Koresh to ask him to come to his office and answer
an arrest warrant. After doing so Koresh was released on
condition that he turn in any guns that he possessed which he
did. The grand jury hearing the case failed to indict.

Most of the people had left the ranch before this happened.
After this arrest Koresh became the leader of those people who
wanted to move back to the ranch.

I do not remember anyone saying harmless. I know a PI who

The issue is, given a choice between a large and small
caliber gun in the same circumstances, which would you use?
There are way too many cases of the .22 LR simply not penetrating
or doing the funny things that high velocity, low mass bullets
are famous for. In a choice between a .22 and a .25 I would take
the .25 simply to avoid that.

However, having at my option a .25 a .380 and a .45 can even
this author give me a good reason to reach for anything but the
.45? Were concealability the issue it is hard to imagine any but
the smallest person not being able to conceal a .380.

BB> Entirely too much emphasis is placed on a handgun with the
BB> magical power to disintegrate someone in a single shot.
BB> Any study of bullet wounds will show that what a bullet
BB> does once it hits the body is not predictable. Caliber,
BB> velocity, foot- fucking-pounds of energy are so much macho
BB> hee-hawing. Small caliber guns have a lot to recommend
BB> them, not the least being the kinds of ammo they fire.

However, there are serious studies of real world usage of
the different rounds and from that the factors have been
extracted that can predict the one shot stopping power of the
standard calibers and variations. These are statistical and are
only probabilities not predictions. They indicate that if you
are going to shoots craps nothing can guarantee a win but you
might as well use loaded dice if you can..

BB> … One last comment on the holy doctrine of “stopping
BB> power.” The ability to instantly kill or incapacitate a
BB> person with a single shot depends mostly on placement of
BB> the bullet — not the bullet itself. Cop files are full of
BB> instances of guys soaking up many rounds of
BB> “one-shot-stoppers” and continuing on.

And there are stories of a .223 round hitting a VC in the
ankle and enough shock being transmitted to the spinal cord to
cause death.

BB> … So fuck the snoots who tell you not to buy the
BB> “pea-shooters” and if you really have something in the
BB> one-shot stop category, buy a .32 and used Winchester
BB> Silvertip ammo. This bullet has been proven to have just
BB> as much fucking stopping power as a 9mm.

I would like the source of this claim but then it is not
you.

If one is buying new then there is not much spread in price
between calibers of equal quality / reputation guns. I paid more
for the Mauser .380 almost 20 years ago than I paid for a S&W .45
this year.

Ammunition prices are also all over the map as I can get .45
cheaper than either .25 or .380 (last I checked although
reloading would be another story.)

All else being equal I will stick with the .45 until I get
the urge to go back to a wheel gun (every 5-10 years) and then it
will be a .44 mag. I see no reason not to.

Subject: Kuwait, 10/24/94

Kuwait, 14 October 1994
by
Matt Giwer (c) 1994 <10/24>

It was a fun exercise. It lasted barely two weeks. What
was it?
Just what happened? Iraq tested the US and allied response
to a repeat performance of its invasion of Kuwait. He
discovered, 1) he could not maintain troops within ten miles of
the border and 2) he could not maintain troops within one hundred
miles of the border and 3) he could not maintain troops that in
any manner would appear to threaten Kuwait.
This was a probe, a test. Until this test no one knew what
the real response might be to a threat upon Kuwait. The standard
method of testing any military system it to probe it to elicit a
response — to see what it does. He found out.
Really nothing happened. Hussein did nothing more than
conduct a normal military exercise so it cost him effectively
nothing. He conducted it in a location that was of value for
what could be learned from the probe. What was learned?
Primarily the time required for a response to be made. We
have to give credence to US knowledge of the preparations for
this having started two weeks before it was made public. As such
he has discovered there is a three week response time, two of
those weeks political and one of them military. He and we now
know any future attack upon Kuwait, which mean occupying Kuwait
City, has to be accomplished in between two and three weeks, the
closer to two weeks the better.
Additionally we learned that Russia is still acting as an
ally of Iraq in that it pleaded for the sanctions to be lifted in
return for only the recognition of Kuwait’s independence. In
general it was learned the old status quo of the US defending
Kuwait and Russia being a reliable ally still exists in reality
rather than what might only have been public posturing.
The cost to learn this was effectively zero to Iraq in that
it could be considered simply a military exercise. The the US
primarily but to some of the allies there were a few billion
expended and more still being spent. Granted the US did get the
same sort of exercise, a practice deployment, and anything that
went wrong will certainly be corrected for next time.
What now? Unless you can read Hussein’s mind we don’t know.
Whether or not Iraq will now plan for a two week total drive to
Kuwait City is anyone’s guess. I presume the CIA and Mossad will
be tracking whatever Iraq purchases that could support such an
operation.
We still have two nominally friendly and oil rich countries
who know without us Iraq can have them. Iraq is also the bulwark
against the expansion of Moslem fundamentalism in Iran into the
Middle East. Iraq remains an indispensable enemy.
In fact Iraq even serves to protect Kuwait from Iran. And
Iran is the real threat to the region and nearly immune from US
ground attack due to its terrain. The only thing that can be
attacked of Iran is what it might extend into another country to
attack it. It is a rather interesting situation.

Subject: ‘THE BELL CURVE’

Lets take this to Politics if it gets off topic.

The Bell Curve may or may not be a valid study. It may or
may not draw legitimate conclusions. The issue is rather that it
is motivated by the politics of the authors (of which one has
died.)

It can be attacked politically in that it appears to foster
the agenda of the author. In so attacking it, the position has
to be that politics is regardless of science, i.e. observable
reality.

On the other hand the last time I heard, for a Gaussian
deviation from the norm to be significant, it had to exceed one
standard deviation. That is 32 points or so not this niggardly
ten to fifteen points the book discusses. Granted tests for
significance can be any damn thing you want to set and all the
rest. But just what it might mean to get a few things wrong on a
timed tests vice never getting them right escapes me.

That point being I have no idea what intelligence as
measured by a printed test means. (I score rather high for what
that is worth.) There are entire classes of problems most people
can not solve without talking them over with someone else. But
once discussed they get the right answer.

Internal visualization of geometric rotations is an acquired
skill but is part of the test. Logic is an acquired skill also
in that it can be taught and, as in politics, is often contrary
to what is really going on.

Having seen the original WW I Army IQ test (and wishing I
still had a copy of it) I assure you no one here could even get a
100 IQ (what do you know about really working horses for a
living? Gee and haw are the least of what you have to know.)

If it is all true, the race differences are “statistically
insignificantly” different in terms of IQ test results. Why all
the crap I have no idea.

There never was any such thing so what is your point? It

If you never noticed, the Israelites and the Moslems are the

Unless the state brings up the 10th they do not have to consider

apply any other criteria then it would have been easy to state.

In other words I see no reason for him or anyone to abide by
any such law as it is not a power granted to the government.
Perhaps it is in the NY State constitution but I doubt it.

Subject: FUNDAMENTALIST WHAT? 01

Christian Bashing?
by
Matt Giwer (c) 1994 <10/29>

Christians, particularly the fundamentalist types, are
constantly claiming they are under attack. There are two
questions involved, are they really under attack? and do they
deserve to be under attack?
To the first we have to determine what is meant by attack.
Certainly we can hold the present administration is on the
offensive against them when one of the highest appointed
officials “preaches” it is time for them to give up a central
tenet of their faith which Dr. Elders characterizes as a “love
affair with the fetus.” That is no different than referencing
Dr. Elders’ love affair with murdering the innocent.
Inflammatory words are not needed.
It is not only the administration. The Keyries Joel
community lost it special school district and the reaction of the
media was quite against the finding. When there is a protest
against the opening of a MacDonald’s in a Hassidic neighborhood
because of some primitive superstition about milk and meat in the
same dish the media gives it sympathetic coverage, they can smell
cheeseburgers a mile away. Of course no one questions that it is
not in their religion.
The media and the administration feel quite free to judge
Christian religions. More generally they feel free to judge any
religion they judge to be fundamentalist. This includes
fundamentalist Moslems.
Strangely this never includes the most primitive and
fundamentalist religion of them all, Judaism. Be that as it may
it is clear there is a public willingness to condemn forms of
public expression of religion and not others.
The next question is, do they deserve it? On one hand one
can say, yes, but in so doing one has granted some person, group
or agency the power to judge what a group deserves. But if one
says no then there is a question of letting any religious belief
transformed into action pass as acceptable.
And there is the point, it is not the belief but the action
arising from the belief. Believe what you want but do not put
the belief into action. But as all religious thinkers have held
in one form or another, belief without action is meaningless.
And thus religion confronts today’s world. The objections
to fundamentalists are not in their beliefs but in their actions.
They oppose abortion and perhaps even gambling, sex and dancing
for all we know. That they would “dare” to take political
actions based upon those beliefs is what singles them out for
attack.
Yet we do not see this on the other side. Like it or not
the American Civil Liberties Union was effectively founded by
Jews with the purpose of removing the Christian heritage from the
US. That may or may not be a good cause and is certainly in
consonance with the thinking of Thomas Jefferson. But it was in
fact an overt action taken upon the basis of religion.
So if one religious viewpoint “deserves” it do not they all?
And if not, why not? Is there some place in the nation an
ultimate arbiter of acceptable actions for a religion?
In the public mind it has been adjudged that Jerry Falwell
and Pat Robertson may not become rich but Billy Graham can live
like a king. The only apparent difference is Dr. Graham does not
promote actions based upon belief. And therefore he is not in
conflict with anyone’s political agenda.
Faith with and without actions is an interesting question to
fundamentalists in that they hold being born again merits
salvation as an act of faith but then do go on to promote actions
as a demonstration of that faith.
This perceived duality of between belief and actions springs
from the solipsistic view. Clearly I know I can believe
something and not act upon it but how do I know you can? Or
rather if you do not act upon it how do I or does anyone know you
really believe what you say?
As we can not get into each other’s heads do we take each
other on faith or actions? That is not a question I intend to
answer here. Suffice to say we can believe Billy Graham because
he is harmless and distrust the fundamentalists because they
prove they act as they believe.
There is and continues to be a different standard and the
term fundamentalists has become no better than a perjorative.
Consider “moslem fundamentalists” when referring to the Middle
East when the most enlightened of Middle Eastern Muslims makes an
Orthodox Jew look positively radical.
It is time to talk of fundamentalist liberals in order to
put the perjorative back where it belongs. These are liberals
who hold with the core beliefs without regard to any fact or
sense of reality that may inflict itself upon their benighted
.

WW II) and getting ready to invade Japan. I had been conceived
before then. It matters to me.

Even though FDR did start the war in my mind, war is a
matter of the gut and not of reason. Japan could have checked
FDR’s move with an attack upon and occupation of Saipan or Guam
rather than Pearl Harbor and not invited the third cut.

On the other hand, if they had caught the carriers dockside
they would have won.

Trooper recalls Clinton seeking loan ‘help’

An Arkansas state trooper has told Whitewater investigators
that during a chance 1986 meeting at the state Capitol he
overheard Gov. Bill Clinton ask for “help” in arranging a
questionable $300,000 Small Business Administration loan, federal
law enforcement sources said.

Although President Clinton has denied any knowledge of the
April 1986 loan, Trooper L.D. Brown, a 14-year veteran who worked
on the governor’s security detail in the mid-1980s, told
investigators Mr. Clinton questioned David L. Hale about the
possibility of the loan during the impromptu meeting, the sources
said.

Rabbis for young couples to go on overseas junket to get
married

In Israel, where civil marriage does not exist, the right to
marry Jews remains an official monopoly of Orthodox rabbinical
courts.

Most of these [500,000] new Israeli citizens are secular.
And estimated 150,000 aren’t even considered Jewish by the Halaka
and cannot be married by rabbinical courts. It’s for these
people the Er Lan, and dozens of other similar companies
scattered around Israel have devised two solutions.

“The most popular is the “Cyprus marriage.” For $1200 —
accommodations and air fair included — the betrothed are sent to
nearby Cyprus, where they are married within five days by a local
judge.

For those who can not easily leave the country, such as
active duty soldiers or immigrants who owe money to the
government [!], Er Lan’s lawyers arrange a fully legal marriage
license issued by the government of Paraguay.

Clinton implores Wilder to help Robb, may offer him Africa
post

In a White House meeting Tuesday, President Clinton urged
former Virginia Gov. L. Douglas Wilder to help his arch-rival win
that state’s tight Senate race and discussed the prospect of Mr.
Wilder accepting a “roving ambassadorship” in Africa, Democratic
sources told the Washington Times.

Sources at the White House and in Virginia said the
Clinton-Wilder meeting was held at Mr. Wilder’s request. The
20-minute session centered on his pending endorsement of Rm. Robb
and his desire to be a roving ambassador in Africa, the sources
said.

“Doug would be receptive to that offer,” said a high-ranking
Virginia democrat who asked not to be named. “That’s what’s on
the table.”

There has been only one exhaustive study of the killing
power of handgun cartridges. That was done by the US Army in
deciding upon the .45 auto. The findings were rather simple, the
larger the caliber the better comes first and after that comes
velocity. These are true unless one hits bone and then all bets
are off. However, the larger caliber the more likely to hit
bone so it even helps there.

Beyond that there are records kept of one street shoots by
the police. You get the highest probability of a one shot
incapacitation by following the caliber first and then velocity
rule. These are hardly scientific and there are plenty of
exceptions for special rounds and not all that much evidence for
most of them.

Nothing I have written should be taken as definitive, only

Supreme Indecision
by
Matt Giwer (c) 1994 <10/29>

Early in its history the Supreme Court of the United States
found it had a the power to declare laws null and void because
they were contrary to the Constitution. This has come to be
accepted as a legitimate power. However, that power is based
solely upon the comparison of a law (or other matter) against the
Constitution.
The on-going debate has been between the strict and loose
construction. The former holds the Constitution should be read
in light of what was meant at the time. The latter holds it can
be interpreted in sort of a “what they would have said if they
lived today” mode.
However there has become a common sense perception,
regardless of how widely disavowed, that the Supreme Court has
become political in nature. That it has added a new criteria,
that of current public opinion as a criteria. It is excused as
saying the Court watches the election returns.
There is a minor problem with this. If the court has any
criteria other than the Constitution, strict or loose, it has no
right to the power to declare laws unconstitutional. Laws are
only internal to the Constitution and the powers the people have
delegated to the government and nothing more.
People remain the supreme authority not only over all of
government but specifically of the Supreme Court. The Supreme
Court is not a pantheon established on earth to be the ultimate
arbiter of the country. It is rather a tool the people have
established within the government as one of three branches of
government to keep that government under control.
That the Supreme Court may be political is a direct
violation of its intended function. That function was not and is
not to determine the validity of laws based upon their party
affiliation but upon the Constitution as written not as
politically interpretated.
When any group is set inviolate above the people the people
have the duty to overthrow it. It is incumbent upon the people
to exercise their supreme authority over the government and
reject its findings. There exists a constitutional mechanism for
such rejection. Should that mechanism be found unusable because
the ballot box does not work then the people are still faced with
their duty.
“The Supreme Court says” is a woeful tiger to be riding. It
has no power other than what the people have given it. That
power was to aid in restraining the other two branches as with
the Triumverate in ancient Rome. But when two or more branches
conspire by means of party loyalty to determine the course of the
government then the people are required to perform their duty.
We have had this kind of Supreme Court in this country since
it determined the interstate commerce clause meant a diner in the
middle of a state. In so doing it declared the rest of the
Constitution superfluous. By such construction everything can in
some way affect interstate commerce and is thus open to the
control of government whether or not it was ever delegated to the
government.
It is difficult to argue the Supreme Court is impartial when
it finds for abortion as a right of privacy between doctor and
patient and can not find financial records as a matter of
personal papers as specifically stated in the 4th amendment to be
safe from the Internal Revenue Service. This is not to pick nits
here, I am quite in favor of privacy in all matters including
abortion. I use it to point out how the same issue can divide
us, the people.
Put politics aside. Will you accept the termination of the
IRS in exchange for abortion on demand? Will you put aside your
political differences in order to get the government out of our
lives? Completely, forever!
That is what I am asking. If we do not have a united front,
if we let partisan politics divide us to the benefit of the
politicians, we are lost. It will be us against them until the
end of time or of this country which ever comes first.

I have no problem with the results but looking at the real
bell curve I am not impressed with the difference.

Consider a person will “brag” about 110 but a person with 90
will be considered inferior. That is absolute garbage to any
statistics I am aware of. Take two different tests and try to
score the same very small difference equivalent no matter where
you are on the curve.

Granted it is 20 points around the norm but it might be five
points around the 2nd Standard Deviation and 2 points around the
3rd IF AND ONLY IF such accuracy were possible.

And let me get down and dirty here and talk about the people
who might not be on this conference. They have a solid 100 IQ
+/- one standard deviation. They are the “majority.” Do you
really think they are bright enough to discern a few trivial
points among those they deal with?

Getting real is hardly the question here.

We have this image of IQ that holds “all of our children are
above average.” 101 is great 99 is to be avoided.

What is clearly missing is the idea of mental maturity.
Unless memory is attached to IQ (I see a way it can be but I know
of no studies) experience can replace reasoning any day. But
with adults it is fixed? That is certainly not an established
point, witness (literally) Colonel Sander of KFC fame.

Then comes the question of populations vice individuals.
That is not an easy one to address but as “success” is one of the
point of this book then we need to discuss just what success
means. I have known several successful cab drivers I would
consider dumber than shit. I also knew a cab driver who was a
Colonel (OK, he exaggerated but …) in the Iranian Army and a
helo driver. Who is successful?

Frankly I do not know. Which brings it back to the
political. Success or failure appears to be defined by who is on
the welfare dole. It could just as easily and in the same
political context be viewed as who is smart enough to exploit the
welfare system. So what is intelligence?

It is not a clear issue no matter how it is presented. I
just may have to read the book if it continues to be of such
interest.

I do have to agree with one response of the remaining living
author, to paraphrase,

‘if I came back a hundred years from now would I find
inheritance a factor? Yes. A significant factor? Probably
not.’
