Gun Control Is Re-Branded Gun Violence

TJ Roberts | United States

On January 9th, 2019, Dianne Feinstein introduced the Assault Weapons ban of 2019 to the United States Senate. In the authoritarian left’s endless attempt at complete social control, Feinstein has made it her goal to ban guns as small as the Ruger 10/22. Feinstein and her supporters justify this in the name of safety. While one may have sympathy for one’s desire for safety, basic logic refutes this claim. In fact, there is nothing that could make a physically weak person safer than a gun. It must be made clear that all gun laws are infringements. There is no compromise on fundamental rights.

Jason Stevens | United States

In Islamic principles, some things are halal (Lawful) and others haram (Forbidden). You probably know that adultery, homosexuality, and alcohol are haram in Islam. But there are many other objects and acts that the religion disapproves of. Here’s a list of haram and/or makrooh (detestable) things that may surprise you.

SPONSORED POST: Reactor Blasts Slot Game into Online Casinos

Note: This is a sponsored post and does not reflect the views or opinions of 71 Republic, LLC or its affiliates.

Red Tiger Gaming has unveiled what is likely to be amongst the last new video slots to have debuted in 2018. In the final week of last year, the casino software providers decided to unveil their new Reactor slot.

Although there are many games out there which are known as reactor slots, this is not one of them. Those titles tend to feature a cluster pays style of gameplay, but this Red Tiger game really is just a plain old video slot, albeit with a few nifty features.

Red Tiger Gaming’s Newest Addition

The new Reactor slot is set to feature 5 reels and 20 pay lines, with bets costing as little as 20p a spin on the game. There are plenty of gemstone and crystal-shaped symbols on the reels which can dish out decent wins in the new slot, although none of the graphics which appear in the new slot are going to blow anybody away.

It does help that this slot carries a non-progressive jackpot which is worth around 5,000 coins. However, whether that prize is enough for fans to get giddy about Reactor remains to be seen.

Win with Reactor Re-Spins

The Red Tiger Gaming slot might win over some fans with its special features, though. There is a wild symbol which appears as a ball of energy, and that can substitute for all other symbols. There is also a re-spin feature which makes the slot well worth a look.

When batteries land on the reels, re-spins are offered to players. Landing a single battery on the reels offers a single re-spin. However, the more batteries you land, the better the features become. Symbol swapping features, extra wilds, mega (colossal) wilds and multipliers worth up to 10x can all be added to your re-spin if you land enough batteries.

Where to Play Reactor Blasts This Weekend

Reactor officially launches this weekend at all top casinos offering Red Tiger Gaming slots. Players will also be able to find the slot for free over at Tunf right now. They can also point you in the right direction when it comes to leading casinos offering the game.

A list of Red Tiger Gaming casinos are recommended at Tunf, all of which carry this and plenty of other top Red Tiger slots to play. If you are thinking of reacting and playing the new slot in the near future, why not try it for free first?

If I Broke into Your House

TJ Roberts | United States

If I broke into your house, I would not be justified. I would be a violent criminal with no respect for private property and personal sovereignty.

If I broke into your house, you would be justified in using force to remove me from your house. You would even be able to use lethal force.

If I broke into your house, I would not be justified in using violence against you when you attempt to remove me. You have the right to do what it takes.

If I broke into your house, everything I do in your house is a breach of your rights, no matter how kind I am about it.

If I broke into your house and you pulled a gun on me, I do not have the right to kill you. I do not have the right to kill your family either.

If my friend told me to break into your house, I still would not be justified. My friend would be inciting violence.

If I broke into your house and took everything you had, you’d want your stuff back. You’d want your family back. You’d want revenge.

If I Broke Into Your House and Called it War, Does That Change Your Mind?

Why is it that these principles are so universally accepted when it applies to you, but not for others? Americans as a whole condemn any person or group who would violently invade the property of another. This attitude, however, immediately changes when we transition to war. America is an empire; there is no existential threat to the U.S. Ultimately, every war the U.S. is engaged in is nothing more than an act of aggression against another sovereign nation.

War is the foundation of the modern state. So far, the U.S. has killed more than 20 million people since the end of World War II in pursuit of empire. In fact, America’s attempt at destabilizing and radicalizing the Middle East has killed at least 4 million people. If other any nation was responsible for so many deaths, the world would rally against it and burn its leaders like the witches in Salem.

Now that the U.S. is withdrawing from Syria, it is time to withdraw the military from the rest of the world and truly pursue non-interventionism. The Military Industrial Complex has not made us free or safe. Rather, U.S. intervention has led to massive debt, breaches of privacy, and a complete disregard for civil liberties on the domestic front. It is even worse for the inhabitants of foreign nations. If the Chinese government murdered your family, you would want revenge. If the Chinese government slaughtered your friends, it would radicalize you. American intervention has killed millions, destroyed the infrastructure, and radicalized the survivors.

Blowback

This, of course, leads to blowback in the US. If you want to know why 9/11 happened, ask yourself what you would do if the United Nations invaded your nation, flipped its regime, killed your family, destroyed your home, crippled your infrastructure, and oppressed your culture. Would you want revenge?

This is exactly what happened on September 11th. While war hawks (who would never enlist to fight the wars they are calling for) will say that ending the wars will pave a way to the next 9/11, the fact is that U.S. occupation of the Middle East in the 90s is what caused 9/11. It wasn’t a random attack. It was unjustified, but the U.S. nonetheless created the climate for such an attack.

A Foreign Policy of Freedom

Perhaps our foreign policy should resemble the golden rule. If you were invaded, you would use violence to repel the invader whether the invader is a military or a home intruder. Why do you expect something different from sovereign nations that the U.S. government sees as its colonies? If you don’t want to be invaded, don’t invade other nations. To avoid falling victim to economic warfare, don’t engage in economic warfare. If you don’t want nations to bomb you, don’t bomb other nations.

It is time that we reject war as the racket that it is. Too many people have suffered as a result of the American Empire’s attempt to destroy the sovereignty of any nation that did not bend its knee to the will of the U.S. War is nothing more than legalized mass murder. It is breaking into someone else’s house. Don’t be surprised when they respond with violence.
