Jacque talks on Research & Development - Proofing Notes
Had to split 00:08:00 - 00:15:00 unnaturally due to exceeding the 70 character minimum.
Had trouble with 01:04:00 when Jacque did the run-on fragmentory sentence.
And 02:01:00 - 02:06:00 had to be split up unnaturally since it's just barely above the 70 character minimum.
"wherewithal" (at the end) is a real word (and a single word.) Learned something new.
-A Ghost at Sea
 
Indeed! never heard of that word before! 
where·with·al/ˈ(h)we(ə)rwiT͟Hˌôl/Noun:The money or other means needed for a particular purpose.

So you can have all laws in the world but if you don't want people to steal water you build an electric fence around the water. That's the way you say don't steal water; you don't need to put up a sign 'Don't Steal Water!' but those people will die So, and we don't want to do that. We don't want to build a fence around our country and say
 
Final Review--Di (1/31/2012)
The following is a correct use of the semicolon:
00:43.760
00:46.700
'Law' is really avoiding problems;
00:46.800
00:50.055
it's just nailing a proclamation on the wall
00:50.195
00:52.500
saying "You! Don't do this."
 
This example is NOT a correct use of the semicolon because what follows it is not a complete thought (independent clause):
 
00:15.140
00:17.985
You can only find the answers by innovation;
 00:18.090
00:20.860
by studying the systems and the problems
00:21.000
00:24.560
and working on methods of alleviating those problems
00:24.660
00:26.060
not through law.
 
This is a run-on sentence (two sentences joined with a comma.  We should either use a period (.) or a semicolon (;). I changed it to a period. 
01:30.400
01:32.950
"This is the greatest country in the world, we're gonna keep it that way!"
 
The use of the semicolons here is not correct.  The correct way to punctuate this is with commas, but because the commas are at the end of the strings, they would be omitted.

Therefore living to yourself;
 01:54.050
01:56.283
your little isolated colony;
 01:56.400
02:00.530
your little culture that you want to build;
 02:00.640
02:03.999
your little city that you want to build
02:04.191
02:06.760
of people with like-mindedness
02:07.040
02:10.200
all of that has no basis for survival
02:10.370
02:13.233
because in the event of catastrophic failure
02:13.400
02:15.930
you will be invaded by the minorities
02:16.030
02:22.000
if they don't have food, water or the wherewithal to live.
