  1. This is also why we have Teflon Don'. He's got plenty of reasons for people to call him an ass, but then they pile all this crap onto the accusations and when they're called out for their bull it all gets wiped off the table
  2. I'm in the circuit for another month, so I guess I'm pretty qualified to answer this one. The Typical American Education Track Preschool: Up to Age 4-5 Kindergarten: Age 5-6 Elementary School(Grades 1-5): Age 6-12(Roughly) Middle School(Grades 6-8): 12-14 High School(Grades 9-12): At least until 16 or 17, then dropping out is permitted though looked down upon. Typically graduates are 17-18 High School Content High School content is generalized largely. Students that graduate are expected to take away at least basic knowledge about Sciences: Earth Science, Basic Biology, Organic Chemistry, Mechanical Physics Mathematics: Algebra(2 years) & Geometry(1 year), Pre-Calculus if they’re sharp, Algebra III if they’re not(or lazy) English: Four years of English, most of it spent on mechanics such as grammar and syntax, with the last year spent on synthesizing thoughts in Essays and reading some older books each year Foreign Language: At least a year of experience. In America this typically means taking Spanish, either by cliché or because it’s the only option. I decided to be different and speak the language of Krauts instead. Some elective experiences in the arts or computer fields is also required. Students are expected to search for future education options and financial assistance under their own prerogative, though some schools may offer some guidance and minor assistance. For example, my high school budgeted three days to each student per school year for visits to college. Your Future After Highschool Where I live, typically if you drop out or are “low GPA” or "Low ACT/SAT" then you hop onto the military track(National Guard or Federal Military branches), and after a time in service the GI Bill can cover your college costs when you complete your service contract. If you’re sharp enough to graduate with decent grades, the general sense is that you go ahead to community college and get a 2 year Associates Degree, though many kids don’t have the direction to pick something they can really build on and many of the 4-year colleges look down on the community college’s degrees due to their teaching discipline(In a sense, several of the classes are basically just High School Plus, a rubber stamp factory so to speak) If you’re really on top of things, you’ve either been scouted and invited to a 4 year college based on your SAT/ACT scores, or you’ve applied to one and been accepted. Tuition costs in my experience are triple the community college rate, applied to a student’s bill based on credit hours(i.e. community college tuition in my state was $123 in 2015, it was $324 at the state college 50 minutes down the road. Bear in mind this is prior to textbook, travel, or boarding costs. A standard class at a state college can run you over $1000, a full time student is expected to take 12-18 credit hours or 4-6 classes per semester, and the costs are continually inflating each year). A Bachelor’s program typically requires 120-128 credit hours applicable to the degree before it can be awarded. Once you graduate your bachelors program, typically the college has some office to help you find a job and sharpen yourself for interviews and networking, but the hiring is up to you and it depends on how “saucy” your resume is on if you can be hired sooner rather than later. In the background to all of this, your probable student loans are ticking away(though you can file to delay payments for a few months and consolidate them). If you’re REALLY, REALLY on top of things, you hop into a trade school, take a 2 year program where you'll probably net an internship while you learn and come out already hired and earning a good 5 figure salary with job security in the long term. Your Future After College After a Bachelor’s degree, you can join a Masters degree program, for another 2-4 years(depending on the field), and further that still for a Doctorate(another 4 or so years). The costs of these courses is progressively higher for each level. If you’re chasing a higher degree, it’s either because: - You got fucked by your bachelor’s program, which only offered the theory side and all the real skills are in the masters program(Or you get double fucked, where the bachelors program didn't qualify you for entering a masters level program) - Someone else is paying for your trip - You have more time and money than sense - You already have a strong paying job and you’re taking the program to raise your pay grade(Teachers for example take a Masters program on the side because upon completion it automatically raises their annual income by a sizeable chunk)
  3. Joe Biden has decided to make an appearance on TV to tell his loyal Democratic viewers that the guy who shot the Texas church shooter should not have a "semi-automatic assault rifle" Then again, this is Joe "Buy a shotgun" Biden

    In case you didn't know >_>
  5. That brings up a memory from last week during Rush Limbaugh's show, talking about this one woman author's plan to get Hillary into the "Big Chair" of the Oval Office. It was this convoluted sequence of: Mueller's special counsel finds hard evidence of Trump-Russia collusion Trump resigns or is impeached Pence, becoming president, is to resign since he benefited from the collusion Pence, in resigning before appointing a VP, allows Ryan to become President Ryan would then name Hillary his VP since she is the most deserving in light of the 2016 election Ryan, knowing his party's honor was stained by Russia, would then step down on Day 1 Thus Hillary would become president They just do not want to let it go, do they?

    I got really angry at him for a while until I realized his freestyle editing leads him to repeat points at least 3 times a video He does freely admit that he's crap though

    Terror Attacks and Active Shooter Events Thread

    Not sure where to fit this. Hope it's sufficiently relevant. I came across something that sprung up while surfing one of the Gun subreddits: Michael Moore has a new plan to Save America(TM). You've heard of smart cars, now to announce the age of Smart(TM) Guns! To save yourselves from the brain vomit his "28th Amendment" to replace the "outdated" 2nd amendment made "before bullets and revolvers were even invented" features: All auto and semi auto guns are banned The gun can't hold more than 6 shots The gun needs to be able to identify the person pulling the trigger and only operate for authorized users Citizens guns must be stored at a licensed gun club or a government regulated facility To own a gun you must have a license backed by a thorough background check, training and safety courses Increase funding to mental healthcare There's a spiel about the CDC getting blocked from studying gun deaths, I think Moore was trying to reference lifting restrictions on the CDC so they can do that. Oh and requiring all gun purchases must have the written consent of the buyer's spouse(or significant other if not married) Mulling on it more, I like how Moore criticizes the 2A for applying to old and outdated forms of weaponry and then in his "better" version demand a technological standard of identifying the user that is not implemented on most firearms, invalidating nearly every weapon since the 2A and even the ones he claims it actually applies to
  8. Knowing they have two completely different motivations for bringing it up, who do you think is going to resurrect this joke of a dead horse last, American MSM or Putin?
  9. They even got a repeat author for one of those I'm surprised a left wing type could even articulate to say that there's a state where the KKK isn't racist
  10. From an uninformed opinion I would guess it depends on the city/department and budgeting. Then there's training, and practices to equip it when on called. If the call to the station goes out for an "armed assailant", local police probably are going to err on the side of facing something more dangerous with their sidearm than be caught underarmed with a taser
  11. Styxhexenhammer has been busy posting recently about this
  12. Maybe they rely on the Warhammer 40k Accuracy Principle? Can't miss a target if the air is completely saturated in bullets

    The Blitz team also recently secured a license to 40K materials
  14. The sad thing is that basically this line of logic was pulled on me yesterday because I mentioned I had heard the term "CTRL Left"
  15. I do not recall such a term used when I went through US History in middle school around '06-07 or when I took AP US History in '09-10 I do recall there was a push about the "New South" which rose out of Reconstruction, but we blew over that pretty quick
  16. Well since Asians are considered "sometimes white" by SJWs, then by twisted logic the answer would be "Yes"
  17. I think I'm a hairs breadth away from explaining to a few associates that even though they carry the tradition of a failed ideology they do have rights too as American citizens(provided they don't impede another's), and if there's a question on why these guys deserve rights even when they carry the wrong ideology in the first place then we're genuinely drifting into obliterating a core pillar of American stability
  18. Somehow I'd envisage it as Spencer at least having some socialist argument to present in the name of ethnonationalism while the antifa guy would just reeeeeeeeeeeeeeee in his face before trying to assault him again

    IIRC the Japanese at least entertained buying one They also bought a Panzer III
  20. Judging by the bit at the end of the barrel I'm guessing this is just some kind of through-the-motions type drill?
  21. If I hear the word 'bombshell' outside of the context of munitions manufacture or it's associated history, it'll be too soon
  22. Apparently there's a guy on /pol/ claiming he's the one who made the actual gif, but holds that CNN wouldn't report on that because he's a pro-Trump Mexican national The guy also claims he's not afraid of revealing himself, since he lives alone and has nothing to lose
