Last two times I went out on the ocean, I left my phone in the truck for that very reason. Less the hammered part, that is.

I think I disagree with that conclusion. Obviously its a bad thing that the town needs the force in the first place. The show seemed to make the case that the force they created was vulnerable to getting bought out by the cartel.

Thats what I got out of it anyways.

Personally, I have no problem with the deployment of limited, low yield nukes in combat. However a lot of the bleeding heart pussies (even here on PBB) would whine and cry about it.

I mean we are talking about mexico here, 3rd world shit hole that it is. There isn't a lot that would be lost, if anything at all.

Jesus, what a well thought out idea.

How about we send nukes to the western seaboard. Take out the opioid crisis and the radical communist movement while we're at it. That place is a shit hole with all the mentally ill people like you. Who would miss it?

Just because you have emotions about this doesn't mean you can toss law aside.

This is what freedom looks like. Get used to it if you stand for such a concept.

Old School Mormons would get together and kill them right back. Did it plenty to Indians and settlers they clashed with in the past. It will be interesting to see what happens now.

Let them fight their own battles. Doesn't mean we need to go off getting our hands bloodied.

Another observation.

This thread is based on a sensational story about a religious war in another country, outside our jurisdiction. It effects nobody in this community. Yet it's gotten more engagement from more users who are advocating more action than a thread I started explaining how the FTC is going to censor online content and effectively create censorship and infringe on 1st amendment rights. But nobody seems upset or mad about that one. It's actually in our jurisdiction and actually effects real members of this community.

Chew on that next time you want to call out who our enemy is.

I don't know of any larger polygamist groups who aren't also engaged in sexual abuse of children. I certainly can't say every polygamist is a pedophile, but I can say with pretty high confidence that it's common in most polygamist communities. It's widespread in the Muslim and Polygamous Mormon groups. And was from day 1 in both. Mohammad married a 9 year old. Joseph Smith (mormon founder) married and got a 14yr old pregnant. Those are the two big ones. I don't think the religious dogma really has anything to do with it. I think it's probably inherent in human nature not to be monogamous for life. It's also undeniably human nature to seek sexual relationships and procreate. So if the higher up males in the community are taking more than 1 women each, that leaves some men without available sexual partners. So... the options are to either: no sex, sex with someone else's wife, or expand the pool of available partners to children. The third option is almost always chosen.

Personally - I don't think the government should have any role whatsoever in marriage or cohabitation choices of consenting adults. Any combo you want - I support it. The problem is that plural marriage is so hard to separate from child abuse. So practically it's just easier to say no plural marriage.

I don't see it as a 1st Amendment right. I see it as a regulation that's going to affect your business. There are alot of those and it's sorta part of business.

However it's been a long time that you don't mess with US citizen's in Foreign places. We have typical pulled US citizen out of hot spots over time. And your issues is money, this is blood. Crap happens though and we can't avenge every single US death but this one seem pretty blatant targeting of US citizen's by a group that has little regard for anything a stone's throw over the border.

We've got enough problems without tacking on what's basically a 3rd world country. Mexico's GDP is like $1.15T. We'd lose that just on the cost of labor and regulation compliance in US manufacturing based in Mexico right now. Nevermind things like basic infrastructure.

There lay the problem. Too many citizens are no longer business owners. This country was a lot better off when everyone was an entrepreneur and thus an active member in their local economy on both sides of the counter. It's all one sided now. Big companies who aren't citizens and menial workers who aren't businesses.

Hmm. Can you imagine thinking like that on other subject?
"The problem is that assault rifles are so hard to separate from mass shootings. So practically it's just easier to say no to assault rifles."


We don't do what's easy. We do what's right, we do freedom. Part of the risk of freedom is some people might abuse it. Despite that, we don't just delete all freedom to make it easy.

Supposed to be heading to San Felipe for New years, we'll see how things go the next couple months before we make a decision. I've been to Baja plenty for racing and never had issues.

Does any of that change the fact that mexico is a 3rd world shit hole, and the cartels need to learn the word, fear. Fear that if they so much as come up to take a breath, a US missile fired from a drone will kill them, and their families.
