Q:Who would you like to see as next POTUS?
It’s a little too early to know who to be pushing for. Rand Paul has definitely grown on me in the last year: solid conservative with libertarian leanings but doesn’t have the crazies like his dad. Similar feelings toward Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. I would also like to see Herman Cain and Rick Perry make a run for it again.
Basically no more moderate Republicans! We need a sound conservative!
This guy just summed up the entire “living wage” argument in under three minutes. This is just simple economics that progressives don’t understand.
Just because those men have turbans on they’re the enemy? Just because they have dark skin? Beards?
Reagan met with the Mujaheddin. The fighters who were at war against the invading Soviets. The enemy of my enemy. If that’s too complicated of a concept I’ll be more than happy to explain the cold war and the usage of proxy wars.
Let’s set the timeline straight.
- Reagan meets with Mujaheddin 1983 (Pictured above)
- Soviets withdraw from Afghanistan in 1989
- The Taliban doesn’t even become an active militia until 1994
- The Taliban doesn’t take primary control of Afghanistan until 1996 (13 years after the photo above)
- During the rise of the Taliban the US backs the Northern Alliance, a Islamic Democratic group dedicated to fighting against the totalitarian Taliban.
So let’s review.
- You’re racist.
- You don’t understand history.
- You clearly took a photo out of context
Q:Do you believe in Santa? In the tooth fairy? How about the Easter bunny?
Of course. I just talked to Santa yesterday and he was pretty chill. He didn’t bring up the tooth fairy so they might not be on speaking terms right now. Granted, Nick is a little stressed out this time of year.
Not so sure about the Easter bunny, was he supposed to be guarding the tomb Month Python style?
Q:What was your favorite class at the University of Washington?
Hmmmmm, tough question. There was an optics lab (physics 331 I think) that I really enjoyed because we got to do cool labs (like making a hologram). And Astronomy 323 about extragalactic cosmology and astronomy 497 current topics was extremely interesting. I also took a class on the Viking that was cool.
Q:What kind of random asks ya lookin for?
Oh who knows. Just bored. I could post one of those please interact with me 100 things to ask, but a 34 year old shouldn’t be doing that.
This is awesome: high speed cameras, guns, science. This video has it all!I could watch high speed videos all day and this one is especially nerdtastic. Cavitation collapse looks gorgeous.
Q:Would you consider yourself a Minarchist?
I’m not sure. Obviously I’m libertarian, but to what extent? I can’t say because I wouldn’t know where to put myself on a “What should a shitty government be trusted with scale”.
I’ll answer with a Milton Friedman quote in which I agree with.
“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government— in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.”
