As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • ‘Unmasking Antifa Act' Includes 15-year Prison Term Proposal

    ‘Unmasking Antifa Act' Includes 15-year Prison Term Proposal By Emily Birnbaum 07/10/18 The “Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018,” legislation introduced in the House, carries a potential 15-year prison sentence for those caught engaging in behaviors typically associated with the “Antifa” movement of anti-fascist activists. Under the act, anyone “wearing a mask” or in disguise who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person … in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege” would be subject to a fine or up to 15 years in prison. Share to Google+ The “Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018,” legislation introduced in the House, carries a potential 15-year prison sentence for those caught engaging in behaviors typically associated with the “antifa” movement of anti-fascist activists. Under the act, anyone “wearing a mask” or in disguise who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person … in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege” would be subject to a fine or up to 15 years in prison. The bill was introduced in the House last month but received renewed attention on Tuesday after alt-right personality Mike Cernovich encouraged his followers to call their representatives and "let them know what you think" about the legislation. Antifa activists, who often wear masks, have gained nationwide attention for engaging in violent clashes. Many activists in the movement have also disrupted actions planned by white supremacist groups. The bill was introduced by Republican Rep. Dan Donovan (N.Y.) and is co-sponsored by GOP Reps. Pete King (N.Y.), Paul Gosar (Ariz.) and Ted Budd (N.C.). The bill is currently in the House Judiciary Committee.
    http://thehill.com/homenews/house/39...-term-proposal This is way behind schedule. I can't believe these DOMESTIC TERRORISTS have been allowed to operate as masked thugs trying to intimidate Americans into relinquishing their First Amendment rights. Unreal. It might be instructive to those of us who are Progressive Marxist Socialists to examine why the Republican party was formed in the first place, and why the Democrats are called Democrats. The original Republican argument in the 19th century is that there are some rights which are above common consensus. let's take a history lesson, one based on actions instead of meaningless diatribes by Leftists. ~~13th Amendment, abolishes slavery. 100% Republican support. 23% Democrat support. ~~14th Amendment, gives citizenship to freed slaves. 94% Republican support. 0% Democrat support. ~~15th Amendment, right to vote for ALL. 100% Republican support. 0% Democrat support. The vast majority of the American people and voters are repulsed by the anarchy wrought by #Antifa in our streets just as they were after the Democrat convention in Chicago in 1968 and the riots, bombings of college campuses and the subversion of our government (which was being done by Marxist Socialists by the way) back then. Our nation teetered on the brink of collapse. But the American people rose up and said no more. Just as these domestic terrorists calling themselves Antifa today. That said, the question NO ONE ever seems to ask and get answers to is: Where is the money coming from to fund all of this anarchy and violence? Where do these individuals who are hiding their faces get the money they need to live day-by-day? How much are they reporting every year on their income tax - assuming any of them actually pay taxes?

            I quite like the irony of this proposed legislation.

              KKK was started by democrats to fight conservative Christian republicans. They remain true to their original precepts today.

                I think the way its written can cause problems.

                “(a) In General.—Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, while in disguise, including while wearing a mask, injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both.
                I fear that this could run into 1st amendment protections due to the way it is worded. I'm not against the idea, but definitely think it's poorly worded. I believe this should have been made an aggravating condition as opposed to a separate crime itself. Similar to the how the next part of it is worded:

                SEC. 3. DESTROYING BUILDINGS OR PROPERTY WITHIN SPECIAL MARITIME AND TERRITORIAL JURISDICTION WHILE IN DISGUISE.

                Section 1363 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the following: “Whoever, during the commission of an offense under this section, wears a disguise, including a mask, shall, in addition to any term of imprisonment otherwise imposed under this section, be imprisoned for 2 years.”.
                “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”
                -Mahatma Gandhi quotes (Indian Philosopher, internationally esteemed for his doctrine of nonviolent protest, 1869-1948)

                It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.
