Hey HK, sorry mate try again with rule 5, comes up straight away on my google search. It comes from a little book written by US and an Aussie writers about a pastime, sport, fanaticism. Is very tongue in cheek but also venerable if that makes sense.
Isn't it a wonderful thing that we evolve as humans, and with such speed. Injustices of the past should never be forgotten so that don't get repeated. Yet we must move on too and recognise that they were in the past and should stay that way.
Difficulty score 20. No green. Nice puzzle.
Would the founding fathers want people to have AK-47s? Probably. The whole point of the 2nd amendment is to be able to arm yourself to protect yourself from anything that might oppress you, including the government. And yeah, if the government can have automatic rifles to oppress you, the founding fathers absolutely would want you to be able to defend yourself with equal force.
And it's not like you can go out and buy an automatic weapon like an AK-47 anyway. You have to have a ridiculous license, and they're insanely expensive.
Hammer--I agree completely!!
Sorry,tHammer - read the text. Nothing about "being able to protect yourself from anything that might oppress you." Here's the text: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. Now - when was the last time that the 2nd Amendment was used for its purpose - when was the last time a weapon was use against OUR government to ensure our security?
EZPZ. No Medium tricks. Nothing but easy stuff, although a bit hard to find for a while. 14.
Phil - ha - your google & mine are different. Clearly American google is correct, lol: "The Rule 5 draft is a Major League Baseball player draft that occurs each year in December, at the annual Winter Meeting of general managers. The Rule 5 draft aims to prevent teams from stockpiling too many young players on their minor league affiliate teams when other teams would be willing to have them play in the majors . . ."
ah Phil - Are you referring to the following: "Rule 5 states that mmateri is always wrong. Any argument you have with him will end in him being wrong. mmateri being the village idiot on thisaintnews.com, has been proven wrong in every argument he's been in, especially when he uses his "facts"."
"Anyone with sense: I'll just skip the 2 hours of proving you wrong and call Rule 5 early." I LOVE it!!!
Phil - would be nice to talk to you directly, please stop sleeping in the middle of my day :)
done, ng 1 guess
Diane: Read Federalist paper #46. James Madison specifically says that the militia of his day would number about half a million versus a standing army of about 30,000 for the federal government. This was his proof that the federal government as defined in our constitution could never gain the supremacy over the state governments.
And note this; the Federalist papers were defending the original Constitution with no amendments. So it was already assumed that the people had the right to keep and bear arms and the Federal government could not take that right away.
In fact, Alexander Hamilton argued in Federalist paper #84 that there was no need for the first 10 amendments (Bill of Rights) because we the people retain all rights not explicitly delegated to the federal government by the Constitution.
Madison had no concept of nukes, bombs, drones, or Diebold machines.
Bombs, yes he did (by the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air...), but for the rest you are correct. Which of course makes me wonder if he would oppose allowing the federal government to have control of nuclear weapons. He might argue that they should be the province of the State governments and their militia.
I fear the new and improved cashless society's too big to fail private banks are planning to Borg the smaller community banks. If the little neighborhood credit unions are assimilated NIRP will make us all into a worldwide feudal serfdom at the whimsy and under the control of the central banks without a single shot fired.
Jackt: I wouldn't fear the banks so much if our government weren't so deeply in debt to them!
Its part and parcel of the agenda. The agenda number keeps changing but the plan remains the same.
