Does the issue of gun control matter much?

It looks like for the foreseeable future, D.C. v. Heller will remain in effect, so we won’t totally lose our right to have a gun (except for us felons, of course).

But I suppose it’s a slippery slope to losing more gun rights, as they ban high-capacity magazines and whatnot. Thing is, you can make your own homemade weapons, so if your plan is to break the law, what do the details really matter, unless you’re going to get hit with a Terry stop or something?

My safety is enhanced by the fact that some people have guns (since it makes home invasions and whatnot less likely), but they don’t necessarily have to be assault rifles to get the job done in most cases. Anyway, most people are probably not going to use their guns for the purpose of fighting back against the state, so that issue is kinda moot. The pot issue is actually more relevant to my life.

If you’re a neetcel, why would you even care if a political candidate is fiscally conservative?

This is another reason why I would tend to favor the Democrats. The situation, with regard to relations between the sexes, can’t possibly get any worse, because we have all these femiservatives (including female politicians) in the Republican Party, who are just as bad as any Democrat, if not worse. Meanwhile, I have no reason to care about fiscal conservatism, since I have no income. That leaves only the weed issue.

I guess theoretically, I should care about the Trump tax cuts since they might save my mom some money, which will trickle down to me. How do I really know it’s going to play out that way, though; maybe Democrats would actually fund her office more, through grants or whatever, and then it would trickle down to me through that other path.

Also, I can’t convert that money into weed unless weed is legalized, since it’s not like I have an allowance or anything, of money that’s just given to me for the heck of it, to spend as I like. To go to D.C. to buy weed is kind of a big deal; I would have to not only go down there but also buy something along with it, to get the weed as a free gift.

Republicans aren’t all that fiscally conservative anyway. Jill Vogel expanded Medicaid, and George W. Bush got us into some really expensive wars. And who’s to say that Trump is really cutting spending all that much (if at all), or that the tax cuts are being done in a way that’s going to offer my particular family much (if any) benefit.

So is anyone actually going to primary Jill Vogel?

If not, I don’t see the point of the Culpeper and Loudoun Republicans’ censuring her. They’re still going to vote for her anyway in 2019, if she gets the nomination. And she’ll win, given the makeup of this district. They have no leverage at all unless one of them steps up to challenge her in the primary, but who has the balls to do that? It’s not going to be Martha Boneta, apparently (not that it would do any good anyway to replace one foid with another).

“What do you think of Donald Trump?”

I used to get asked this question a lot on the campaign trail, and I would respond, “I voted for Gary Johnson.” That’s true, and I could talk about why I prefer Johnson to Trump, but another response I could give is, “I like Trump’s impact on our culture; I’m less impressed by his political ideas.” Of course, that’s not necessarily going to get my ballot access signatures, because it might turn off both the Trump supporters and Trump detractors.

But the way I look at it is, I just like that he didn’t cave in to the leftists. He didn’t usually apologize or backpedal, because he knew that wouldn’t work. He stuck to his guns. So I think he set a good example in that regard.

But, I don’t like his protectionist policies, and I don’t like how he had to be dragged into supporting cannabis legalization. We’re just lucky that there was enough pushback to keep Jeff Sessions from cracking down on the legal cannabis markets.

I guess we’ll see how good his Supreme Court nominees are; it seems too early to tell. I think it was interesting that he gave a list of potential nominees, and then didn’t deviate from that list. I wonder if future Presidents will do that as well.

It was interesting, too, that he picked Mike Pence as his Vice President. The guy seems pretty innocuous, but I might have preferred if he’d picked, say, Ron Paul to shore up his libertarian support than a cultural conservative to shore up his evangelical support or whatever. But I guess Pence is sorta kinda okay, I dunno.

Aside from the SCOTUS nominations, Trump is not going to produce any epochal change that I can tell, except maybe culturally. His immigration restrictions aren’t really going to make much of a difference.

Another thing about the Donald is that he’s relentlessly optimistic about “making America great again” and I wonder if he realizes the country will first have to collapse before it can rebound.

But notice, I don’t really have a lot to say about Trump, because I don’t really care that much about him — which I guess is a sign that he hasn’t done a lot of damage, in my book. Yeah, he launched missile strikes on Syria, but other than that, he hasn’t gotten us involved in a lot of war, so already he’s doing better than George W. Bush did. Plus he actually condemned the Iraq War, which was refreshing for a Republican.

One thing about Babs that’s unusual for an American woman is that she’s actually thin

dkb7yypxcaaz4h11You don’t really see a lot of thin women these days. Most American women are pretty sedentary, and/or so unhappy and anxious that they have to use food as a cope, and/or they get on meds at some point that cause them to gain massive amounts of weight. Babs probably does enough walking around (or running away, as the case sometimes is) that she burns a lot of calories.

Mises Wire has basically has no female authors

Just looking at today’s page, we have , , , , , … yup, no foids. I can’t even remember the last time there was a foid author on there.

It’s so refreshing, because when I go to, say, the Reason blog, I see names like , , etc. (Okay, those are the only two I’ve seen today, but I’ve seen others in the past, like .)

When I go to, say, The Bull Elephant, half the content is written by Jeanine Martin, and her femiservative bias permeates the whole thing. Couldn’t they find any men to write for that blog?

And Virginia doesn’t have many other Republican blogs, that I know of, that publish content on a regular basis. There’s Bearing Drift, but that’s even more cucked.
