Take over the PD. Sounds like the locals would support you.

Politics and Debate / Time to Start a New Company
« Last post by Cryshalsing on June 19, 2017, 11:41:47 PM »
So, over the last few months, I have been watching the Junction City Community page on the Book of Farces.  Anyone who follows that page can see the problem.  Rampant property crime, drugs and assaults (mostly by the transients living in the woods on the north end of town) and the reticence of the local law enforcement agency to proactively do ANYTHING to combat this issue.

Likewise, the people of this town seem unwilling or afraid to act proactively in any constructive manner...oh sure, judgmentalism, insults, dehumanizing the 'Human Trash' and threats of Vigilante Justice (Which Ironically seems to be a scorched earth policy of ANYTHING north of 17th street and the 'Squallor' near 'Papa Johns' (where I live).

I've recommended Neighborhood watch groups (then promptly said, "Yanno...better you lot don't try that...you'll end up killing some kid on his way home from a dance..." (this was after someone saw abunch of  'Punks one on a skateboard, riding past my house...Next time I'll just shoot him'.  'Punk' on the skateboard was my son and the other 'Punks' were his classmates coming home from homecoming.  Dude lives, literally, right across the street from the highschool).

The problems are real, they're not imagined.  People are getting ripped off right and left.  Call the cops?  Nope, nothing we can do about it...

As managers of the 'Squallor', we tried time and again to clean it up.  Always, one or two tenants who would bring these people into their homes and whole park turns to shit.  We'd issue trespass warnings.  We'd call the cops...IF they'd show, "Doesn't matter if they've been trespassed...They're on private property...Law says they're space is their property..."

"Well, they have to cross the common property to get there, that's Criminal Trespass!

"City Prosecutor won't touch it!"

Then Chief comes by and threatens to fine Raven and I personally for the 'Trash and health hazard...'  When I explain the problem to him his response, "Next time, tell them I said they are to make the arrest."

Chief wants to make 'em work...great...

Then Chief gets fired because some special snowflake cop gets his feelings hurt when the chief said he didn't belong in law enforcement.

So...Been reading this shit for months and it occurs to me...Junction City needs a Security company.  Not one based 15 miles away that will take an hour to respond to calls for assistance...One that is local, that knows the concerns and needs of the community, and can service/respond to the outlying areas that the other companies in Lane County ignore.

Done the research...it's gonna take about 1800-2500 JUST to get started.  There is a need, there is a niche...it's time I started my own company.

Now to find the funding.

Gah. Noticed I keep misspelling his name. It's Folsom, not Fulsom. Sorry 'bout that.

Myth of the Robber Barons, by Burton W. Fulsom Jr.

This book is fantastic if you're into American history, business and finance.

Yes. Finance. Of a sort.

The first chapter of the book deals with Vanderbilt and his battles against the monopolies and government subsidised steamship runs. He looks at how V. tackled them by cutting costs and innovation which the government-subsidised competitors were loath to try.

It then talks of James Hill and his railroad success when compared with the government built Continental Railroad.

He also talks of various families who made it big in America as well the tax initiatives of Andrew Mellon in the early 1920s.

A fascinating read. It's well written and easily read in words almost anyone can understand

Great book.

Translation, folks, is that Leftist politicians won't get it.

New Deal or Raw Deal: How FDR's Legacy Has Damaged America.

Another great book by Burt Fulsom.

FDR has often been hailed as one of the greatest of the US presidents who successfully guided America through the Great Depression.

This book blows that myth. It looks at some of the initiatives FDR initiated and looks at the taxes he implemented. He also argues that FDR's policies not only increased the effects of the Depression, but damaged America in a way that has lasted until today.

Another great read from Mr Fulsom. Again, it's packed with easy-to-read information.

I've contended for some time that Roosevelt's policies extended the depression by nearly a decade.

Politics and Debate / Re: Co-ed Faces Two Years for Lying About Rape
« Last post by Cryshalsing on June 17, 2017, 12:56:52 PM »
Thought you would. :) The thing is, in today's world even an accusation of rape can have horrendous consequences for the accused. The old adage about lies travelling around the world before the truth gets it's boots on, has never been more true than it is today.

Yet some want to ignore the lies. I can remember more than one high-profile case like this where the accuser (or author of an article) was found to be lying but many 'feminists' were screaming that it was alright for her to lie because punishing her might deter real rape victims from coming forward.

No!

If we are to have true justice then these false witnesses should be taught that there are repercussions for their actions. If you attempt to falsely ruin someone else's life, then you should face punishment. The same sort of punishment that goes with the crime you accused them of.

Exactly, and along with Criminal Penalties, I'd access civil penalties as well.

Politics and Debate / Antifa attack columnist. Oh, dear.
« Last post by Sasquatch on June 17, 2017, 03:39:55 AM »
A few days ago, conservative columnist Andrew Bolt was at a book signing in Melbourne when he was attacked by two antifa thugs, accompanied by their cameraman.

Andrew is 57 years old. The thugs, much younger. They attacked him, throwing a mixture containing a sticky substance and glitter (some reports say it contained shaving cream) that struck his face. They then attacked him with fists.

Unfortunately for the thugs, Andrew is not one to run and hide.

A report from a fellow journalist, including footage from the antifa (although he denies it) cameraman can be seen here.

Another camera view can be seen here.

The cameraman denies he was with the thugs, only saw what was happening and decided to video it. However reports have him lingering nearby until the thugs arrive and he scarpered when they did.

Good work, Andrew.

A powder-filled letter has been sent to Georgia Republican Karen Handel and some of her neighbours.

Read more here.

If this don't stop soon, I'm probably going to have to buy a ticket to the US.
