Just because I don't reply to your posts, does not mean I don't read them. When I open OPP, your posts are the first thing I look for.

Bernie's plan for free college education is not such a bad idea. It just goes too far.

I'm in my late 80's, and when I graduated from high school that was all the education you needed for most jobs. Times have changed. I would support a free 2 year community college or a trade school. Have you needed a plumber lately? When times get really rough, who is going to have a job: my son with a master's from Cornell or the local plumber?

My pleasure.

After a few years on this OPP forum I have grown fond of so many and even liberals that have opposite views and opinions. There have been many of these liberals who over the past years have shared life's experiences, tragedies, death of a family member, illness or how they have their favorite fishing hole, filling the stringer with trout. They have humanized themselves instead of a political rival, I see them as a individual who frustrates me, as they type out their opposing views.

So after years on OPP if I can help prepare everyone, even my liberal friends, then we both win.

What state do you live in or city if you don't mind sharing it on this forum?

I am in better shape than you are. I am more tired than I would be if I had worked 20 hours a day for the past month. Have not watched the first debate, yet.

Cyber warfare is a thing... using social media to establish false entities and long term user histories so as to establish credibility is a thing... thousands and hundreds of thousands of fake users to add credibility is a thing.

This thing is fraud, it's about deceiving people into believing that fake premises and rhetoric are real things that alter their perceived reality..

Searching out false information entities that are using sophisticated social media techniques to expose millions of people to garbage information is going to take on a critical function. Labeling, eliminating, penalizing the entities doing it is going to be a thing.

Already we can see boundaries between the people on the two sides of this fight. The fight will be between people who want this fake news to stop, who see it as incredibly dangerous fraud. The other side will be those who this fraudulent information was designed to affect, those who believe it that is what makes this cyber warfare so effective. It can affect and shape the minds and opinions of millions of people who are subject to believing things that are constantly being heard because a human trait is to believe what multitudes of others believe.

We are already seeing it play out as a thing that can be seen by those who are believing rhetoric and fake news as an assault on the constitution and freedom of speech. For those who can be fooled into protecting the rights of any entity to disseminate anything they want no matter how false we have those who protect the right to believe any BS they want to believe this is working. The other side is going to be that this BS is dangerous because it so effectively has millions of people believing and defending lies and misinformation.

Both sides would agree that misinformation and fake news is a problem. False information has to start being easier to figure out, and it starts with people being able to take things they believe and match them up to facts. There is something wrong with people rejecting facts because their heads are so full of misinformation, much of which is so silly it doesn't even make sense if applied with common sense and other things we know.

That's the reason I'm on OPP. I skip over posts I agree with, and devour those I disagree with. I've learned a lot.

New Study Shows Link Between Sex, Pregnancy
June 7th, 2016

ANN ARBOR, MI—Researchers at the University of Michigan announced Tuesday that a comprehensive, decade-long study has discovered a strong correlation between sexual intercourse and pregnancy in women—a groundbreaking conclusion that is sure to have far-reaching implications.

According to Dr. Michael Citino, who led the study, nearly every one of the tens of thousands of test subjects had engaged in sexual intercourse at least once in the several months immediately preceding pregnancy.

“The correlation is dramatic and astounding, and gives us fresh insight into how and why women become pregnant,” Citino said at a press conference, noting also that the results of this study can be immediately beneficial for humankind, especially in the area of family planning.

“For instance, extrapolating the data would seem to indicate that for anyone who wishes to avoid becoming pregnant with a child—or impregnating someone else—abstaining from sexual intercourse should, according to the study, be one very effective way to achieve that result.” (show quote)

No new info from your article, but I got a belly laugh from the title.

Chicken Little Response Follows Virginia Beach Shooting
By BarbWire - June 6, 2019

Over the weekend, another deranged person went on a shooting spree, killing 12 people at the Virginia Beach business where the man worked, until a earlier the same day when he emailed his resignation.

Naturally, anti-gun Democrats, including Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, acted like Chicken Little, but instead of running around screaming that the sky is falling, they are running around screaming that guns kill.

When Northam ran for governor, part of his campaign was filled with all kinds of promises for more gun control laws to be passed.

So, keeping true to the Chicken Little hysteria, Northam has called for a special legislative session for the sole purpose to pass more and stricter gun control.

NPR – After Virginia Beach Shooting, Gov. Ralph Northam Calls Session On Gun Violence – In the aftermath of a mass shooting that killed 12 people in Virginia Beach, Va., Gov. Ralph Northam is calling a special legislative session to address gun violence.

“We must do more than give our thoughts and prayers; we must give Virginians the action they deserve,” Northam said during a news conference Tuesday morning in Richmond, Va.

Northam said he is summoning the Republican-controlled Virginia General Assembly to consider what he describes as “common-sense public safety laws” — including universal background checks; bans on assault-style weapons and bump stocks, as well as sound suppressors like the one used in the Virginia Beach shooting; requirements to report lost or stolen firearms; and expanded authority for local municipalities to regulate firearms, including in government buildings.

The governor’s spokeswoman said Northam’s office is hoping to arrange the special session for late June…

Northam says that it’s outrageous for people to go to work, school or church and not know if they’ll ever come home.

He forgets that tobacco, a long main crop in Virginia kills far more people in his state and every other state than guns do.

Secondly, far more people in Virginia will be killed in an auto accident and by impaired drivers than by guns and they’ll never make it home either.

The issue has nothing to do with the safety of the people but everything to do with disarming the American people and stripping them of their constitutional rights.
