Man: It started when our country broke away and formalized its own government. It was based on the freedom of the people idea. Wasn’t it?
DJ: More freedom with the landowners because there were privileges given to landowners that were not given to the common people. The wealth generally carried over from Europe when they came here so there was already established. It’s not like everything got totally mixed up. Of course, we have to define what the person is whether that was dependent on skin color or gender or whatever.
Our country is not wealthy. It’s funny because our country is not really pure. Our country is a product of its time. There was a time that was happening and things were going on and they were very much against the idea that government could exist without the will of the people. I think that was what they were going for. They were going for the will of the people. They are going to have to generate the government. Yes, it’s interesting that that exists. We’re surely not the first who own their democracy. That’s interesting, too.
The constitution was a great effort in trying to create some sort of equality for the people. Although those people would have probably been lords, dutch, or barons, they would have been someone as part of the aristocracy. It’s not really as clean as it sounds.
Man: No, it’s not. Let’s press on for some more comments.
DJ: A lot of more friends. Well, here’s the thing about the guns. I think the availability of guns is a little bit problematic. I’m not saying that people don’t have the right to own them or to do whatever it is they want to do with them. However, there are apartments where people got 15-20 guns in there and a lot of them are maybe buying and selling drugs, too. There’s a good percentage of that, but the fact that all that stuff goes down around guns still means that the guns were there.
They can’t say that a good guy with a gun is the only answer to a bad guy with a gun because in that situation. Everybody is a bad guy. The kid in the crib that got shot or the girl that’s sitting at the breakfast nook or across the street, whatever, picks up a bullet. I mean it’s just outrageous in a way. I don’t think that’s what they were saying. Back then, it wasn’t the same kind. You don’t keep it in your car, flip it out, and pull the trigger while you’re driving by. It wasn’t like that.
Man: No, it wasn’t. You rode by it on a horseback.
DJ: Right and you weren’t going to be able to shoot a gun at the same time most likely. You’re going to have to stop the horse and do some stuff. I mean it was a time-consuming process. It wasn’t just as casual as you know. They weren’t nearly as portable nor could they be used as quickly. I think it’s a different environment that we have now. I don’t know how we work this out, but I don’t think we work it out by continuing the status quo which is what the gun rights enthusiasts are.
That’s what’s happening as a result of their movement in that direction because they don’t want to do anything other than have complete unfettered access to guns all the time: to the buying and the selling, and the owning, and the storing and the possessing and the carrying. They would also like the laws to not restrict where they can use them probably. I don’t know. That doesn’t really come out, but the idea that they don’t want any gun free zones. They want it to be in schools, in churches, and everywhere, airports.
Man: Now you’re touching on something that I’m sensitive too. There should be places where guns shouldn’t be – church, synagogues, and mosques, no guns there, why? It’s a spiritual place and not a material place.
DJ: But it’s weird to make it a law. I mean because if you make it a law, then it applies to everybody, and everybody has to. Who’s responsible for that then? Do you put a metal detector at the door of every church or the churches that don’t want the guns like if you don’t make it a law? You can just say churches don’t want guns, but how do you control for that?
Man: My personal opinion about this. Now, we’re going to get to my personal opinion since I feel like I need to give one. The churches? No, there should be no guns. If you are going to commune with God, we don’t need a gun to go commune with God.
DJ: It might depend on who your God is.
Man: That’s true.
DJ: I mean there are Satanists who want to give a presentation down in the city of Phoenix at their town council meeting with rules and stuff to keep it from happening, but that’s the same thing in a way. You could say that’s the same idea as carrying guns at some place. I mean it could be a religion to someone. They may feel like that’s what their beliefs are.
Man: That’s just a side note. You want me to comment on that side? I was like, “Dude, are you really one to be that much of a Christian to worship Satan?”
DJ: That’s interesting perspective. I mean, probably schools.
Man: The securities should have guns.
DJ: So there should be security at schools.
Man: There’s security already in schools. The grade school and high school I went to have securities. There are cop’s cars that sit out in front of the middle school down by my office. So the securities, since we live in this type of society, were as dangerous like it always has been. Security should be at least trained.
My objection to the police is they are untrained. If they don’t have a weapon, if they don’t have a gun or a stick, they can’t do shit to anybody. They’re not trained in anything. They don’t train in judo, they don’t train in karate. They don’t do anything. When they do stick fighting thing, they were just taught two strikes. Two downward strikes to the lower torso and legs and that is totally inadequate for anything. They rely on their pistol, their shotgun or a choke hold. In Korea, you can’t be a police officer unless you’re a master rank at least in some martial art or you’re not even a candidate to be a police officer. Why don’t we have that in the United States?
DJ: Well, that’s a good point. I mean it might make the lethal force less appealing in tight situations.
Man: They can’t even deal with a person with a blunt-ass machete because they don’t know what to do. They look at that and they freak out because they don’t know what to do.
DJ: Well, that might be interesting. Why wouldn’t they have that required?
Man: Yes, they should know how to use that baton that they carry around to defend and defeat someone with a blade.
DJ: Here’s what I don’t understand, why would the taxpayers put up with the police that aren’t trained like that? If we’re hiring, why don’t we assist on that? It only makes sense. What happens is some company comes along and goes, “We can sell you these Tasers so you can spend money and support other corporation and do something.” Instead of that, have somebody learn how to take somebody down.
Man: If a person is running away, so what you run after them and kick their leg from behind. Put a joint lock on them and let not go anywhere. A little jiu jitsu would be nice. Even cage fighters know how to fight. Did I say that out loud? Yes, I’ll say that again. Even cage fighters know how to fight a little bit.
The gun issue in the Second Amendment says that we should roll out to have a pistol or gun of some kind.
DJ: Congress will make know and French are going to put their right to keep the barrels.
Man: That’s correct. There’s a comma between that and well-organized militia.
DJ: Which comes first? What we don’t have are well-organized militias.
Man: Yes, they keep breaking them off.
DJ: There’s a problem because…
Man: There’s a paramilitary fringe groups in there instead of well-organized militias.
DJ: It was because they’re politically active. It is the problem. They’re not just training in case of something should happen. The history of this even the Second Amendment says that it implies that there might be a need to protect oneself from a larger government.
Man: That’s the moot point, because if the population has an uprising, let’s say that most of the population uprises and takes their pistols and goes down to the State Capital or the Washington Capital, that’s not going to make any difference in the government because they’re too indebted, they’re two cyber spaced. They also have the all nuclear weapons and they have all the conventional weapons. Our government could call up a Destroyer FRS in California coast and they can launch a rocket from the California coast and drop it on this block and vaporize this house.
DJ: There’s probably two other governments with ships out there off California that can do that.
Man: When the argument comes up, “Well, we’re defending ourselves against our government.” “Really? Okay.”
DJ: Okay. So that’s not a legitimate argument than what value does the Second Amendment have.
Man: The value of the Second Amendment is that it’s there and we should maintain it to defend ourselves from other people who are nastier than we are. Sure why not? If Mexico or Canada decides to cross the border to take away the United States because they finally got mad enough to do it, the local population should be able to defend ourselves from a foreign invasion.
My bias is that everyone who claims to be American should train in some form of martial art, should train in some form of blade work, and should train and own a pistol and a rifle. End of story. That should be a requirement for citizenship, but no one wants to do that.
DJ: No, and Stephen Hawking doesn’t want to do it.
Man: Of course not.
DJ: Do you know what I’m talking about?
Man: Yes. He’s not capable. He’s not physically capable.
DJ: There are a lot of people that don’t want to sit on their ass and eat bonbons.
Man: That’s true. They want someone else to take care of them.
DJ: So, here’s what we’re running into. We’re running into a population problem. I mean that’s essentially what it comes down to. There are too many people.
Man: Really. 7.5 billion
DJ: The people that are here are using way too many resources way too fast. That’s largely concentrated in this country and Europe, but more so here even – ridiculous. A lot of what’s going in the rest of the world is caused by what’s happening here. They’re making stuffs to sell to us.
That’s a problem of real issue I think, and I think that’s the bigger issue. I mean we can’t control a population by just getting rid of all of the poor people, I mean we could, but that doesn’t really solve the issue because it’s the rate of which we’re consuming the resources.
Man: So it’s not our population because it’s something. Am I wrong? I think that the population is balanced. It’s not growing very fast here in the United States, but we’re consuming per capita. The rate of our consumption is outrageous. I don’t know how to say it.
DJ: Well, both things are true. The population is still increasing and higher rate of consumption is increasing. I mean it’s interesting. Look at what we have in the phone, the computer, and tablet market, and the annual obsolescence of those products. Maybe not obsolescence annually, but certainly they have new things coming out constantly and the old ones are becoming obsolete rapidly. So it’s hard to keep up if you want to do that.
Man: The duplications of services are outrageous too.
Man: Well, we want a free marketplace where everyone can have their own mouse trap. We have Chevys, Fords, Dodges, Toyotas, and Nissans, but they’re all just cars.
DJ: Well, that’s true, but I think it’s okay to have all of those things going on and people organizing in smaller groups to make even. I would like to see boutique car companies like Tesla, but maybe with different focuses and different functions. So I like the idea when Hyundai came over and started selling inexpensive cars with long warranties and things like that. I thought that was great. It’s a great way to compete. I didn’t necessarily think it was great that Hyundai did it, but I was glad someone was doing it. If companies in the US can’t figure out how to make money doing that, you know, let them do it over there. It insults us, but I think the real problem is that too many people are using too many resources too quickly.
I think those problems have to be solved. Think about if you were at the G8 meeting or something like that. I don’t know what they have now, maybe G12 now. Anyway, and you’re running your corner of the world, and everybody’s competing for everything and whatever. You’re looking at the planet and trying to figure out how to divide it up. Who’s going to get what resources and how that’s going to pan out? You kind of be thinking that we don’t want to keep supporting all these people all the time forever. You know what I’m saying? I mean there’ll be a lot more wealth if there were a lot less drains on it. That’s the right wing attitude.
If there were less people wanting to pull from the resources of the government or the population, then there’ll be more wealth for everyone else. That’s not the heart of the small government idea, right? Welfare is not that good. We don’t need the department of education and we can handle everything locally. We can downsize the whole government stuff like this and downsize all the welfare things and not become a welfare state anymore.
Man: Okay. Well, if they would put the Social Security and Medicare fund and take it out of the general fund and make it by itself again before some smart politician Johnson, took it and put it in the general fund and start stealing from the Social Security and Medicare covers, then that wouldn’t be a problem. The only problem that’s coming up is Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s treatment in the next, I don’t know, 2025-2030, is going to out strip the total gross product of our country.
Man: If you took all the money and fed it into Alzheimer’s treatment and care, then there wouldn’t be enough. One disease is going to bankrupt this country.
DJ: It seems weird that we’re having a problem with disease where people lose their minds. I mean they don’t lose their minds in a violent way, but they literally lose their mind as well as the rest their body eventually.
Man: There are several causes. The causes that I’m thinking of are that there’s a skew. Well, there’s a toxicity that causes it. Toxicity is way high and dilutes copper toxicity from the water in the copper pipes so we’re drinking mostly copper water. The other thing is that our ratio from omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids is skew. It’s like the average American’s ratio is 40-60 and Schizophrenics themselves are skewed like 50. This comes back to the mass shootings. They’ve gone violence dense. If you do a blood test on these people that had gone crazy and start shooting places up, their omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids are skewed over 50.
DJ: I wonder if that’s true. I wonder if we’re doing that research.
Man: The American diet is skewed 50, 60, or 70 to one omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids. The omega-3 fatty acids are what maintain the brain and omega-6 fatty acids promote arachidonic acid which is a proinflammatory chemical that causes most of our chronic diseases: heart disease, brain disease, atherosclerosis. It’s not having high cholesterol, it’s having high inflammation in the body that causes that stuff.
It’s funny that we got these people who have high cholesterol and they get myostatin drug and it clears off the sugar molecule off the cholesterol. In a year, they have diabetes and they only have to take another drug for diabetes. It’s in the pubnet. You look it up yourself.
Oh, and go to the website .gov or some .gov websites. It’s a government website that lists all the ingredients to all of the immunization drugs that they use. Just look at the list of ingredients on there: formalin, eliwel, bunch of crap that’s in it. They give it to kids when they’re under two years of age. Their blood barrier hasn’t formed yet so all that crap goes directly into the brain like when they’re babies because they don’t have a blood brain barrier to protect them. Then they wonder why, “Oh, this person has autism or this person grows up and has dementia and this person grows up and has Alzheimer’s.”
They talk about all these other brain things that are going on and they don’t link it back to, “Oh crap, who gave this stuff to these kids before they build a brain barrier formed? Oops.” Oh, yes, then fluoride, it is the most electronegative element on the periodic table. It’s on top of the list along like three, boron and bromine. Bromide is under that. Guess what’s at the bottom? Oh, iodine. Iodine is necessary in every cell of the body especially female breast tissue cells.
DJ: Do you think there might be an iodine deficiency causing breast cancer?
Man: Yes. Because the fluoride in the bromide. Bromide is in everything because the manufacturer had convinced the government that bromide doesn’t burn. It’s just a flame retardant and should be put in everything. So they put bromide in all the pillows and all of the mattresses and all the rugs and everything to make it flame retardant. Well, that bromide replaces the iodine in tissue cells. Thereby, making tissue cells especially breast, breast tissues are highly sensitive to that. Now, we have a higher rate of breast cancer.
DJ: Come here. Good kid. You’re not thinking of chewing that.
Man: So how is it that we want to control the population. Shall we poison them with all these regulations?
DJ: No, no. That’s not very efficient.
Man: Well, that’s what they’re doing.
DJ: But that’s not what they’re intending to do with that. They are intending to make money. I don’t know. I mean we need to be having a conversation about what to do about it.
Man: Yes, but we can’t have population control when we glamorize some women having 15-20 kids and give her own TV show. Then these women have fertility issues and we should make sure that they can have children too or maybe that’s God’s way of saying, “Hey people, slow down.”
DJ: Yes, but so, everyone’s got these instincts. They all want that. You know the parental instinct is huge as well as the tribalism is huge.
Man: I can appreciate that too.
DJ: People aren’t wrong for these things.
Man: I can appreciate all that and it’s not wrong for a society to have warriors and a society also to have slaves. Well, we don’t have that either because we’re not allowed to do that. It’s not right.
DJ: Well, I don’t know. We kind of do have slaves. We have $7.50 minimal wage or $8.30 for some though.
Man: Yes we do.
DJ: That’s pretty close to slavery. Okay. It’s not slavery.
Man: It’s indentured servitude.
DJ: Yes, exactly.
Man: So what do we do about that? How can we get that cycle broken? How about tell the banks and the credit card people that they can’t charge over a certain rate of interest because there’s no way that a person that makes that wage can ever pay that interest back.
DJ: That’s the problem. The predatory lenders prey on that market. I mean that’s the market that they prey on. We did do that in Arizona.
Man: No, no, no. My lowest rate on my credit card is 14 right now and there’s one credit card that I got rid of. That was 21 percent. Are they being like predatory? That was like a national credit card that had that.
DJ: Well, I don’t know but did you look for a cheaper one?
Man: I got one cheaper. I got rid of it. So what’s the average credit card rate?
DJ: Best 0 percent cards of 2016 from Credit Card Mint. 2016 top ten credit cards, creditcards.com. Card ratings, best credit card. I think maybe because there’s a lot of stuff that they use when they make you offers. There are just all kinds of stuff and your zip code.
Man: Where would you put a limit on someone’s credit card? That credit card interest that they can charge? Where would you like to put a balance point for all credit cards? They can be lower but not much higher, but where would you put the balance point for national credit cards? Not even like local credit cards though, but the national big brand named credit cards. Do you have a percentage rate that you unlock them into so that they couldn’t go?
DJ: No, I kind of think like if people are willing to pay it. They can charge whatever. Here’s the thing, what I think is companies are doing high-risk loans and charging average fees for the high-risk clothes, because people don’t have any money but can afford 200 percent a year or whatever it is they’re charging for the petty loans and stuff like that.
Man: They’re trying to sneak that back in.
DJ: Yes, they’re getting around a bunch of stuff. They’re doing auto title loans, but then when you go in there, it sensors a limit on the amount of interest they could charge you for your auto title. Legally, there’s no interest on it. The limit doesn’t necessarily apply or it’s a different limit for just a signature loan. So they say, “Oh, well we need to loan you more money in your car’s worth so here you are you have to get the signature loan and now we can really screw you.” That’s the new thing now.
Man: That’s wonderful!
DJ: Here’s the $350 cash back 6 percent of the supermarket, $6000 here on purchases, you get cash back 6 percent in US supermarkets. So, I don’t know that might be that Blue Cash Preferred might be a good card.
Man: Hey, it’s on the list.
DJ: It might be. That editor who gave it a four star rating, whereas he gave this one a five star rating, but still Sapphire preferred. These are the big advertising ones Starwood Preferred Guest Card. That’s interesting it makes someone else buying it. Cash Rewards, do you have a Crash Rewards credit card?
Man: Yes, I do.
DJ: It doesn’t say what the interest rate is. Maybe that’s just to spit on your credit. Rate some fees. There you go.
Man: There you go. Ahh, 13 percent. That’s about 14, yes.
DJ: It’s in this range. It could be as high as 23 or 24. That is a lot – 24 percent.
Man: Do you have an idea to put a stop on how high they can go above certain?
DJ: Well, I’m sure there are legal limits on there, but it’s what we can tolerate. Credit cards should be used like cash cards instead of something that you have to pay interest of it. So, what you do is you set up another account like a savings account or something like that because otherwise if you carry a balance in there, you’re screwing yourself. That’s what I think about that.
Man: It’s all about this gun issue.
DJ: I always think these girls are worth it.
Man: The problem of overpopulation will not be solved as long as they have things that they’re entitled to have children. Without it, there’s no education about having children. There’s no education about raising children. There’s no test.
DJ: Well, I think the education system is way off based. I mean, yes, it’s important to read and write and learn mathematics.
Man: It’s a taboo for public education to talk about having children or not having children and raising children is taboo. That should be one of the core curriculum things especially in the age group just before, during, and right after puberty. We have this weird thing in the United States where we think that the adults start at 18 or 21. They’re not fully educated. They’re not fully civilized and socialized to our culture in the United States at puberty. After puberty, that’s 13, 14, 15, or 16, whatever that happens for that person, they are an adult.
Our modern society has pushed adulthood off to 18 or 21 and 30 if they go to college for anytime. They’re made to behave like dependent children for too long, no responsibilities for too long. When their hormones and body chemistry which is the hormones are telling the brain that they’re adults now, then it’s time to have children; it’s time.
In the pre 20th, 21st century modern America, the kid grew up he when he or she turned 15. The boy went through the male rites to become an adult at 15. They went on under trials and they either survived or they died. They became an adult. The girl was separated from the rest of the clan and made to sit and meditate or think about what nature had done to her because she’s going through menses and becoming a woman.
Then these two people after they go through their puberty rites have become the adult part of the tribe clan or nation. They have children soon after that, and by the time they’re 30 or 35, they have children in their household that are old enough and ready to take over the responsibilities of the household. Then these older folks are now old as we put off the whole old age thing for decades now in the United States at least. They’re like elders of the tribe, clan, and family, so whatever role they play after that that’s their role then because their children have now become the parents and they’re raising the next generation.
Here in the United States, we’re like, “No, you have to grow up to be 18 or 21 and you have to date for a few years and then it would be better if you get married but nowadays you don’t really have to.” Being that adult thing creeps up on you, and then finally when you finally realize that you’re an adult and responsible, there’s no clear demarcation between your childhood and adulthood. Then they wonder why we have all these teenage pregnancies. Well, they’re adults; they’ve got hormones on acid and they have not been taught any responsibility because they’re still children
DJ: Hormones on the acid.
Man: Yes, sir.
DJ: I see. Well, that’s what the point behind the men and their game. I don’t know about the thing about women if that’s critical.
Man: Nature happens to them, but I think we don’t really have one.
DJ: The gangs exist because there’s no leadership or guidance in the neighborhood. That maybe because the adults are in jail.
Man: Maybe. We’re shot. We’re sitting on a wheelchair because they’ve been shot on a very bad spot.
Once again, I get back to my bias. I think part of the solution is mandatory military service. As soon as they turn 18, males and females should have mandatory military service from 18 to 21. There they can learn how to defend themselves, about guns, and about the damage the weapon can cause. When they get out of the service at 21, they have a chunk of money they can go to college with blah blah blah.
DJ: Really? I think maybe not everybody goes into the military service if they don’t want to because they’re better suited for. You know.
Man: You went to the military service, weren’t you?
DJ: Really? It’s not the way I look at that. That’s painful.
Man: Even my pacifist and my Buddhist friend went to the military and they survived it.
DJ: Do you think I’m a pacifist?
Man: No, I’m just making a joke sir. I do remember the story when your drill instructor called you in the office and asked you, “What are you doing here?”
DJ: No, that was my CO.
Man: That was your CO who called you in the office?
DJ: Yes. That was my captain. He was really seriously like he had no idea. He’s asking, “Who are you?” That’s what he was asking. He’s like, “I have only joined two things in my whole life the Southern Baptist Church and the United States Army.” I thought that was so funny. I’m like, “Really? You didn’t join a band?”
Man: But you have a Buddhist temple at the end of your bunk or something. DJ: Yes, I had. There were two bunks in the room and they had these little drawer units. I think there were three drawers on it and they had like an end table. For some reason, in each room, you get two. You get a locker for each person and these drawer things for each person. For whatever reason, our room had two extras so I just built an altar there. There was the first sergeant and like, “Why don’t you go Buddhist somewhere else?” They were really upset about it. I mean there were people with fairly ornate Catholic altars and things like that. Did they say, “Why don’t you go Catholic somewhere else?”
Man: I worship the great god cathol wherever I am.DJ: I’m just saying and there were plenty of crosses and there was a plenty of stuff there. Mine was a little more ornate than most. I had a Buddhist statue, 2 feet high or 18 inches or however high that was same as what I’ve got in right now. This is the classic Buddha and I put posters all over the walls. Okay. Do you want to get something to eat? Is that what you said?
Man: No, I think our personal commentary should end about right now so we could go through this other thing.
