Word is that the first Officers trial in the matter of Freddy Gray will start just after Thanksgiving.

Gives plenty of time for the down town looters to get their Christmas shopping done early.


On the plus side,Defense has told Judge that Prosecution is just now releasing evidentiary witness statements along the line of "Dude was tossing himself back and forth in the van like a crazy man".

Little things like that might be worth knowing about when you're being charged with Murder.

47 From the SC officer's murder article Vic posted this a.m.
http://fxn.ws/1OIqZuX

Joan Woodward, 81, lived next door to the officer's parents and said she had known him since he was a baby. She said Wednesday afternoon that she'd just visited with his wife and baby.

"She said she was so fortunate that she had him for that length of time," Woodward said.

She remembered sneaking candy to the officer when he came to her door as a child, and she called him "a special human being."

"When my husband died eight years ago, he was so sweet," she said. "He came and sat with me. God always takes the angels."

84 Re: electronic medical records from last thread.

I work in that industry. Spent several years at the software company that develops an EMR and currently for a hospital system on the team that maintains it.

As with most things, it's not the idea that's bad, per se, you just can't legislate competence. EMRs are a good thing and when implemented well do increase then quality of patient care. All the top hospitals have used one form a while now. But when the federal government comes in, they confuse cause with effect. Just saying that a hospital must use an EMR or else won't make the poor quality hospitals better. They'll half ass the implementation and end up with an even bigger nightmare operationally.

96 "Mystical" composer Frederick Delius spent a year managing an orange grove, then went back ta-Yerp and wrote a "Florida Suite." Here's a piece of it, for mood music: http://tinyurl.com/pz79qkx

I like images of Florida from before the land-development rush, which apparently started in Augustine in 1597. People my age have grown up with nothing but the cheap motels, expensive ho-tels, and Canaveral beaches of Fleming's "El Dollarado." Guilty as charged: I own a Naples condo.

FWIW this little piece was championed by Sir Thomas Beecham, a medical chemist who made enough money to support his own symphony orchestra and his conducting career. It's part of Glaxo now, but when you saw SmithKlineBeecham on a pill, the B was for a symphony comductor.

186 Casual observations while toodling around Chicago includes my first rat sighting (last night, crossing the street in front of us, I nearly ran over him, but missed). He was pretty small, for a city rat.

Bums: the guy with the nice plastic lawn chair and a clearly-printed sign. We're obviously talking upscale professional bumming here.

The bum at the bus stop who, with great difficulty, managed to step into the street and pick up a cig butt that might've still had one hit left on it, maybe. Made it back up the curb without falling.

The guy who looked like "whatever became of Pigpen" (accompanying cloud of dust and all), walking down the street, begging at car windows: I noticed he had a bluetooth ear-thingy!

OTOH, that may be something like the program I proposed long ago of giving fake cell phones to crazies so when they walk down the street mumbling, they can at least look like they're on the phone.

For all my un-PC terminology I delouse myself.

196 - scanning crowds. Cops do that too, though.

- Walking FAST. Only civilians do that arm swinging, weaving all over the place, WTF is this backroads Africa? kind of walk. Vets walk with a purpose, always, even when drunk.

- Eating FAST. Lots do this, but vets don't usually do the boarding house reach thinger.

Not a vet, but I do thus too coz I grew up in a third world crowded big city. My kid is like "do you have to walk so fast?"

Wow, that's my kids too. Though I've try to work with the system given.

Up until this year (fourth grade) my daughter was using a number line to add and subtract numbers because it was one of the approved methods. Part of the problem is they try to teach children (seconds and third graders) three or four methods of doing a problem, which really confuses them.

The standards in NC require the traditional (and best) method starting in the fourth grade. So apparently the idea of Common Core is to confuse the hell out of them for three years then teach them the way to do it that pretty much everyone learned to do in the past in the first grade.

Elementary school wheeled in a TV, Chet Flake yammered on, NO questions could be asked, there was no provision, and the teachers didn't know jack shit. I was set up to fail in math. First year high school little different, the girl next to me asked an algebra question (the one I was about to ask) and for an answer, teacher slapped her face smartly. What did I learn? Learned not to ask questions, and fail every consecutive math class required. Barely graduated. Hmmph. By trade school, I was "type spec'ing", the pre-disital publishing way to order type set, using arcane math formulas. At a tech start-up in 2000 I described the way I did arithmatic to cope, and the Harvey Mudd college Professor/advisor told me I had been "factoring" ("... and that's college level math!") So there, bitches. I coulda been a contender but for that predecessor to Common Core.

Common knowledge here but related and worth repeating in these troubled times:

"Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded - here and there, now and then - are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as "bad luck"!"

Part of the problem is that we're such a big country that the refugees can be tucked away into a lot of places. Then, when a particular community gets upset - like that CA community that was blocking the buses full of unaccompanied minor illegals last summer - it's tamped down as a "local news story." ---Poof!--- problem disappears.

How extremely odd. The episode I watched had Clara and Peter Capaldi in Victorian England held captive by a canabalistic cyborg.

454 David Tenant is indeed popular among johnny-come-lately Whovians who don't know who Tom Baker is, or that the series is over 50 years old.

I've seen the entire series from Hartnell to the present, and I like Tenant a lot. Also Matt Smith.

They'll take unoccupied property first, like I've read they're doing in Germany. No different than OWS squatters, except initiated by the feds.

And then there's eminent domain, thanks to Kelo. The feds will (are?) sweeten their offers with $$$ to entice cities and states to take more immigrants, they'll in turn declare your neighborhood "blighted" and out you go!

Abortion was not illegal everywhere until 1973 - it was legal in a few states like NY. Roe v. Wade made it legal in all states.

So yes, according to a very pro-life doctor I know, those were from aborted babies in the '60's. However, that certainly does not justify hacking up babies in 2015.

Yeah, it was pretty much a B.S. report. They completely miss the point that there are sources for fetal tissue that do not require the willful termination of a budding human life and the heartless stirring of a puddle of organs on a Petri dish. Fetal stem cells from miscarriages, properly donated and handled respectfully is a very different thing than the active solicitation of mothers to terminate a life and justifying it as "needed for vital research". I'm disgusted.

Hmmm. On the one hand, we must sacrifice aborted "fetuses" for the sake of curing diseases, but on the otherhand, we must open our borders and welcome all sorts of foreign and nearly eradicated diseases brought in by people who do not get vaccinations/decent healthcare in their home country.

Reminds me of the churches in Michigan last summer taking in busloads of South American refugees to "resettle" them in small towns across the state. So they can then be given Medicaid, Food Stamps, housing, bus fare, utility assistance, etc.

Just what Detroit and the state need. Syrian refugees who have no skills, no education, probably can't read or write their own language let alone English, but have half a dozen kids, grandma and grandpa, three brothers and a sister with three kids.
Meanwhile, the current welfare benefits in Michigan total $13 an hour, making entry level jobs, unattractive to those on assistance.

538 Tell me we haven't picked a side.

Iraqi Christians fleeing persecution at the hands of ISIS are being turned away at the American border despite having family sponsors --- as thousands of Muslims are granted asylum.

At least 27 of the targeted minority, known as Chaldeans, have been held in detention in San Diego since entering through the Mexican border this spring.

Now, after months of waiting, 22 have denied asylum and sent back across the Atlantic to Europe, as another five await a verdict.

In total, America had accepted just 727 fleeing Christians at the start of 2015 --- a fraction of the 4,200 Muslims granted asylum --- and few since.


Yet we *must* take 100,000 "Syrians".
Evil.

539 If anyone thinks the Russian occupation of the Syrian airport is benign, look up the Incident at Pristina Airport, where the Russians squared off with British and U.S. troops and almost started World War III.

The Incident at Pristina Airport.

And remember that Gen. Wesley Clark was the boob who allowed it to happen. The same ball-less Wesley Clark who is now on TV talking about the Russians in Syria.

546 The time traveler's conundrum. It doesn't work that way.

Exactly. You can't change the past because that has already happened. So ask yourself, have you ever been back in time to some other time? NO, of course not.

If tomorrow, you went 'back in time' that would be your future! See? You can't go back in time and kill yourself, because you would have memories of some stranger trying to kill you, but you survived, you see, because otherwise you wouldn't exist to go back in time, you see? It's all very logical.

In the Sarah Connor Chronicles they did exactly that. So they shot the guy, but they shot the old guy not the young guy. And it didn't matter anyway because the old guy had already done the thing that got the young guy in prison where he turns into the old guy.

She shoulda shot the young guy. That would have changed everything.

549 The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and Charlotte City Council are discussing whether to create "public safety zones," city areas where people with past arrests would be prohibited from entering.

... isn't this the plot of "Escape From New York" ? ...

Under the controversial proposal, Chief Kerr Putney could designate a high-crime area as a safety zone in response to crimes such as drug sales or discharging guns that were committed on public property.

Someone who has been arrested for crimes in the area could be issued a notice that they are no longer allowed to enter, for as long as the safety zone is in effect. Entering the zone after being prohibited would be a misdemeanor.

I've always maintained that while the msm and lefty politicians are our opponents, they are a second order.

The real problem is we have lost control of our schools. Kids today are being indoctrinated in lefty groupthink rather then reading, writing and 'rithmetic not to mention a healthy dose of critical thinking. We are left trying to convince voters who don't just oppose us on policy, they think we are evil idiots.

623 >>Who does Obama think he is protecting here?

Not protecting people from sexual assault by perverts who will use this to, say, follow a woman (or girl) into the bathroom (or locker room) and then claim he "identifies as female" despite still being capable of committing rape.

624 618 WASHINGTON - The Obama administration on Thursday will unveil a major new regulation on smog-causing emissions that spew from smokestacks and tailpipes, significantly tightening the current Bush-era standards but falling short of more stringent regulations that public health advocates and environmentalists had urged.

Yeah, that's way more important than addressing the Russians taking over the Middle east...

628 I gotta hurricane prep list of about 20 items I should be working on, but Instead I keep refreshing the computer model link in hopes it blows out to sea.

Amazing -- 20 different models showing 20 different things, but with anthropomorphic global warming they have only one model. And it's spectacular.

That's funny. I don't remember having seen any smokestacks anywhere recently, much less spewing anything.

Posted by: Mortimer at October 01, 2015 12:29 PM (0dcbp)

633 I told you so.

The shadowy Iranian commander Soleimani visited Moscow from July 24 26 just 10 days after the nuclear deal was announce despite a travel ban and UN Security Council resolutions barring him from leaving Iran He met with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Putin to discuss arms deals But Fox News has since learned that the Russian and Iranian leaders were also discussing a new joint military plan to strengthen Syrian President Bashar Assa, a plan that is now playing out with the insertion of Russian forces in Syria

While most were watching Congress, Obama had already taken the deal to the UN and Iranian deals with Russia and China were taking place.

634 Now before you all get wee wee-d up, the right to pee is a fundamental right, all persons should be able to pee, or wee wee, wherever they like. Just look at San Francisco and their nice yellow sidewalks, we should all have yellow sidewalks. I am also going to demand that all males must now sit or squat to pee, or wee wee, like I do, I'm really just a sissy bitch at heart.

But we could sure as hell slam the gates shut. Throw any employer using illegals into PMITA prison. Revoke all welfare benefits for illegals. Prosecute the mayors of sanctuary cities. Restrict all immigration to First World citizens with verifiable jobs waiting for them in the US.

All it takes is a pen and a phone and utter deafness to the MFM and their accomplices. Which means it will never happen.

It's a new world. Thank God I won't live to see it.

642 Unless we completely stop all immigration, both legal and illegal and reorient it towards the 1st world and away from the 3rd world this country is finished.

I, as a White Man, am now a Minority where I was born, and currently live (Central Valley Calif).

over about a 30 year span its gone from pretty normal America, to majority Hispanic...

You now here more Spanish spoken most places, than English.. especially in Doctors Offices... and you can't get most normal type jobs, unless you are bilingual (yes, that is a legal hiring criteria), thus giving immigrants (legal or illegal) an advantage.

Add in they are Tribal in nature... and Hispanics will tend to do business with Hispanics first...

And they have no REASON to assimilate.

And that is the path this country is on... we are going to be balkanized into Tribes...

Don't we pay a bunch of Government workers to deal with that problem???

Why is no one in Congress asking why these laws are not being enforced???
