Keep it civil or you will be warned once, then banned. Or if it is beyond the pale, banned without a warning.

Taxis vs. Uber

I like Uber. It's convenient, the drivers seem to be more communicative and interesting, and it is certainly transparent. Knowing what the fare will be before you get into the car is a very nice thing.

Here is a nice little primer, with some interesting data about the differences between Uber and conventional government monopoly taxis. Taxis versus Uber: The Regulations, the People, the Money and the Future

there is some evidence that, in comparison to taxi drivers, Uber drivers discriminate less against minority riders. For instance, an investigation by the Washington, D.C.-based WUSA 9 news agency found that, with respect to hailing taxis, black passengers wait longer and are 25 percent more likely to be stranded than white passengers.

Conversely, Uber’s policy of not revealing a rider’s personal information or desired destination until the driver accepts the job, coupled with its policy that drivers must accept at least 90 percent of all requests, could offset racial bias and prevent drivers from refusing to serve certain areas. In fact, an Uber study in Chicago concluded that 4 in 10 rides start or end in areas
underserved by taxis.

SciBabe is smart. And refreshingly human. She doesn't write too much, which is unfortunate, because she clearly has the Moron sensibility...Nature Doesn't Give A Fuck If You Live Or Die.

By the age of one, how many times had modern medicine saved your ass?

What about by the age twenty? How about now?

How many times has nature tried to kill you? Strep, staph, weather, tsunamis, all the vaccine preventable illnesses, tooth decay, allergies that range from life-threatening to "goddamnit, it's spring and the trees are fucking," and whatever the fuck Gwyneth Paltrow is getting stung by bees to cure.

And the goddamn flu.

Without modern medicine, how much worse off would your life be?

If you go back to doing all things naturally, a tiny emergency turns into a big one. A long term chronic illness turns into a quick death sentence.

High-fat cheese: the secret to a healthy life? I actually don't care whether it contributes to a healthy life. It contributes mightily to a happy life, especially with some good crusty sourdough bread or a fresh-baked baguette.

Well, we're on a "Telegraph" roll, so here are two Brits waxing poetic about the joys of Japanese whiskey. I have tried a few, and they are nice, but I have yet to be wowed by any of them. Does the Horde have a different experience?
Why Japanese whisky is now some of the best in the world

I roomed with a bunch of cripples (their word, not mine) in college, and most were refreshingly smart-assed about their injuries and disabilities. The current attitude that elevates their "bravery" to ridiculous heights rankles the way speaking of Hillary as a fashion icon or Chelsea as a super-achiever does...

We disabled people aren't 'super' in any way. I couldn't care less about the Paralympics

The problem is this: most disabled people aren't interested in 'breaking boundaries' one little bit. The chances of most disabled people becoming a world class athlete is roughly the same as it is for able bodied people (i.e nil).

I should hardly need to point out that, despite having a disability, I don't have much in common with any disabled athletes.

What's more pertinent however, is the 'wow-factor' that able bodied commentators and viewers of the Games seem to have towards what sociologist Rebecca Chopp has called 'super cripples'.

It would appear that only by contorting and manipulating ones body into something approaching super-human do people with disabilities actually gain the respect of wider society. Disabled people who don't strive for these goals are still patted on the head. Disabled people who do are given medals.

22 An internal Obama administration email shows immigration officials may be literally working overtime to swear in as many new citizen voters as possible before the Nov. 8 presidential election, a powerful lawmaker charged Thursday.

The email, from a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services field office chief and part of a chain of correspondence within the agency, urges the unnamed recipient to swear in as many citizens as possible due to the election year.

The Field Office due to the election year needs to process as many of their N-400 cases as possible between now and FY 2016, reads the email, which was disclosed to FoxNews.com by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., who chairs the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

I think they claimed Lion King was ripped off from Kimba the White Lion - which it sort of was. But hey, the first anime were Disney-inspired. Exchanges of culture - it's an amazing thing!

Anyway, it's a live-action anime movie, so until proven otherwise, it's going to suck.

I like "Laredo" by The Kingston Trio --

As I walked down in the streets of Laredo.
As I walked down in Laredo one day,
I spied a young cowboy dressed in white linen,
Dressed in white linen and cold as the clay.

"I can see by your outfit that you are a cowboy."
"You can see by my outfit I'm a cowboy too."
"You can see by our outfits that we are both cowboys."
"Get yourself an outfit, and be a cowboy too."

Unless things have changed in fandom over the last year when I've been too depressed to care I'd wager half the fans are just pissed Hollywood is looking at anime again and the Social Justice Wanking is just a convenient excuse to express their desire to feel superior and cliquish (also like most Social Justice Wanking)

126 Broseidon...

Tezuka's Jungle Emperor Leo was turned by NBC into Kimba the White Lion so they could show it in the US. And the only reason why Leo, Tezuka's name for his white lion, was renamed Kimba was because in the 1960s there was a black power drink called Simba so NBC improvised.

In Tezuka's version, Leo returns to Africa to succeed his father who was killed. Because of his American experience Leo starts to teach the other animals some human things while protecting them from a couple of poachers.

Does that sound at all like the Lion King?

U.S. officials in Camp Butler in Okinawa said the cause of the crash is under investigation. The aircraft had been assigned to Okinawa, which hosts more than half of the 50,000 U.S. troops based in Japan under a bilateral security agreement.

165 I thought about the wonders of modern medicine this week. After suffering an torn meniscus tear in my knee, I'm walking like a normal person (although arthritis is hampering my ability to take longer walks). If my fall occurred in 1816 instead of 2016, I'd be hobbling around with a cane and in constant pain for the rest of my life. How many people in the 19th century who worked hard on farms and in factories were crippled by the time they were in their mid-50's?

There's a lot to bitch about when it comes to doctors and the healthcare system (I work for one, and I've done my share of bitching). The truth is we're damned lucky. Nobody got total knee replacements 100 years ago. Yes, the cost is horrendous - but what modern medicine is able to do would have struck our ancestors with awe.

189 ...Without modern medicine, how much worse off would your life be?

As I told the dentist this morning, after he hit me with the needle, I am truly grateful I live in 21st Century America.

And while he was painlessly digging into my teeth, I had a thought...

You know those "environmental" recordings, ocean surf, or forest birds singing, that people use for relaxation or sleep aids?

Get a recording of the whine and rumble of dental drills, as they sound inside the patient's head. I'm sure that would be a great aid, too.

For something. Not relaxation or sleep, though.

190 There's an anime that would make a perfect Hollywood movie called Psychopass - they could change the setting from Japan to America if they want. Otherwise, it'd be ridiculously easy to adapt. Instead, they try to do complicated shit like Neon Genesis Evangelion and Akira and it gets stuck in development hell.

At least the GitS movie is getting made, but like I said, until proven otherwise, it'll suck.

192 165 I thought about the wonders of modern medicine this week. After suffering an torn meniscus tear in my knee, I'm walking like a normal person (although arthritis is hampering my ability to take longer walks). If my fall occurred in 1816 instead of 2016, I'd be hobbling around with a cane and in constant pain for the rest of my life. How many people in the 19th century who worked hard on farms and in factories were crippled by the time they were in their mid-50's?

There's a lot to bitch about when it comes to doctors and the healthcare system (I work for one, and I've done my share of bitching). The truth is we're damned lucky. Nobody got total knee replacements 100 years ago. Yes, the cost is horrendous - but what modern medicine is able to do would have struck our ancestors with awe.

210 LCDR Scott Speicher was flying an F/A-18 Hornet fighter, BuNo. 163484, when he was shot down 100 miles west of Baghdad, on the night of January 17, 1991, the first night of Operation Desert Storm. His plane crashed in a remote, uninhabited wasteland known as Tulul ad Dulaym He was the first combat casualty for American forces in the war

The U.S. Navy maintained in a 1997 document that Speicher was downed by a surface-to-air missile However, an unclassified summary of a 2001 CIA report suggests that Speichers aircraft was shot down by a missile fired from an Iraqi aircraft,most likely a MiG-25 flown by Lieutenant Zuhair Dawood, 84th squadron of the Iraqi Air Force.] Speicher was at 28,000 feet and travelling at 0.92 Mach (540 Knots) when the front of the aircraft suffered a catastrophic event. The impact from the R-40 missile threw the aircraft laterally off its flight path between fifty and sixty degrees with a resulting 6 g minimum load. A pilot on the same mission stated: Im telling you right now, dont believe what you're being told. It was that MiG that shot Spike dow

For myself, none. But my mother got both replaced at once.

The other reason is that the author uses this word hyperpuissance And the fun fact that most of the commenters disagree, jeer and generally tell the guy he is so off base.

Last night I was watching this show that does ER reenactments. This guy had come in with a fairly wide fence post that went through his mouth and straight out the back of his head, leaving a gaping hole, and destroy a good share of his jaw and teeth. They managed to get it out without killing him. Then he had all this reconstructive surgery. They had him in front of a camera and his face still looked not great because most of his teeth were gone and his jaw wasn't all there. Then they showed him after all the surgery and he looked completely normal.

Oh, and the way this happened is he ran off the road, I think he fell asleep at the wheel, ran into a fence and the fencepost went straight through his head.

I thought about the wonders of modern medicine this week. After
suffering an torn meniscus tear in my knee, I'm walking like a normal
person (although arthritis is hampering my ability to take longer
walks). If my fall occurred in 1816 instead of 2016, I'd be hobbling
around with a cane and in constant pain for the rest of my life. How
many people in the 19th century who worked hard on farms and in
factories were crippled by the time they were in their mid-50's?



There's a lot to bitch about when it comes to doctors and the
healthcare system (I work for one, and I've done my share of bitching).

My parents got the Time-Life "Science" and "Nature" series of books, and there was one on "The Human Body" that had a whole write-up on joint replacement as science-fiction that people were working on that just might happen in the future. I remember when those books would arrive in the mail. It isn't "ancestors" -- the things we can do with joint replacement would have struck my younger self with awe.

into a big one. A long term chronic illness turns into a quick death
sentence.

Wow. Yeah, it's amazing. I met a guy who spent 6 months in a Burn Unit. He was in a gas explosion that burned 85% of his body. His thumbs were burned off, so they took off his big toes and reattached them to his hands. It worked. Yeah, his hands look weird, but he can pick up objects like a normal person.

And, after many plastic surgeries, his face looks -OK. There are still scars, but he doesn't look like a freak.

In an earlier age, he would have died in agony and it would have been a blessing because his life would not have been worth living. Now he plays the piano.

Perhaps it has already been mentioned, but diabetics sometimes need high fat cheese to stabilize their blood sugar, either type I or type II.

Type I, in a low blood sugar condition needs sugar, right now or they go to the hospital. A little high fat cheese before that conditon, helps keep them stable. Of course, too much of anything is too much. Balance is the key. Too much high fat, or just eating too much, without exercise, and they go to the hospital.

Type II needs high fat food for the same reason. Sugar gives them a high, followed by a crash. High fat foods smooth out the crash. Of course, type II also can eat too much without exercise and get themselves into trouble.

Hi guys.

Gotta agree. I HAD to have hip replacement at age 50. Then spinal surgery at 52. If I didn't I'd be unable to work today.

Turns out when they did the hip they found out it was congenital hip dysplasia. From birth my hip situation was screwing me up, and long term my back.

Yes, modern medicine has made a great difference. I'd be a retired invalid otherwise at age 50.

I have heard many many people say "I don't know why I waited so long" when getting something replaced. I'm 38 and have bad arthritis in one knee due to trauma and they want me to wait until I'm closer to 50. boo. So, cortisone shots until they don't work, then get it scoped.

Thats why they make you wait

I am 5 years past the expiration date on my knees, according to the last doc that scoped them.

We're blessed to have our son, she miscarried on his 2d birthday. Luckily(an odd word to use but a correct one) we were too far from a base to go to one for the ER. We wound up at Johns Hopkins and one of the best OB/GYNs in the nation told me her best guess was my son had implanted on an area about the size of the face of a dime....the only pristine part of my wife's uterus. Tricare refused to allow her to pursue care under this doc so over the course of the next 6 years we finally found out she was correct, and had nailed the hypothesis...all from one x-ray and analysis....later backed up by UltraSounds and CT Slices.

Some Docs have got it and a lot don't.

Prayers for your healing.

Yep. Even money made of cartoons gets taxed. Then again it seems the manga and anime producers have at least one recognizable name picked up every year for trying to get around that.

410 So, off-topic (hahhahahaa)...

We now have the season premieres of Gotham, SHIELD, and Lucifer. I have 'em recorded, but haven't watched yet. I'm a lot busier now than I was last season. Don't know if I can get back into these cartoony shows.

Especially after Flash, Supergirl, Arrow, and Legends start back up. Slightly curious how the Flash changes everybody's history storyline will go... but, the time, the time it takes!

At least Dark Matter is over for the season.

Then again Kia Asamiya I think has penned/drawn more than ten volumes of manga devoted to a young woman and her rare Porsche Carrera, you see the car was a college graduation present from her father but she got a job and immediately moved away to pursue career. Then her father died and she finds out about the car. That is how it starts. He has also done four more volumes of Silent Mobius that once I slay the credit card I need to get.

Why? Because it is for men only. Does that mean that we are heartless misogynistic assholes? No, we already have housing for females elsewhere. More to the point, we know damn well that mixing these guys with women is an unmanageable mistake. We've been to this rodeo before.

They're still milking it. Sequel series starring Naruto's son, and they're animating some of the light novel side-stories. Original manga-ka (Kishimoto) is an "advisor" - so basically, just getting a check so the fanboys don't revolt.

I mean hell, it took like 18 years for them to realize they could do another DBZ sequel to milk more money from than franchise. Though that's been a cash cow for 32 years - Naruto is a relative youngster at just 17 years.

Yeah, don't bother with the anime - they did even *more* filler when the manga ended. Like, they weren't stalling for material from the manga - it was already over. They just decided "Yeah, this is a good spot for 50 more filler episodes."

True, they found other ways to milk it - endless re-releases of stuff, merchandising, Kai, a couple OVA's. Getting Toriyama on-board for Movies 14 and 15 and then Super was the icing on the cake.

IIRC Toriyama wanted Goku beating Freeza to be the end of DBZ. They held a metaphorical gun to his head and told him to keep writing - he was their cash cow.

476 Gainax gained prominence with the bouncing boobs of Gunbuster. I can't really remember what that series was actually about; as far as I can remember, it was all about boobs.

They went on to make Bubblegum Crisis, a sci-fi OAV series loosely based on Blade Runner, with an all-girl cast wearing power armor and fighting rogue androids that they called Boomers. It's one of the all-time anime classics, and you can't really consider yourself a proper otaku if you haven't watched it.

Evangelion was their first attempt at a long-running series, and it was just a hot mess. Initially intriguing, but it just ran on and on and in the end it turns out nothing was really changed by the actions of the heroes.

Part of Evangelion's problems were brought on by the studio head (I forget his name now) going through some rocky times with his wife Moyoco Ano... but... I have to say, she was actually producing better stuff than Evangelion at the time, like the josei manga Happy Mania, about a dumb 20-something bimbo making a lot of stupid mistakes in her love life. It bore some similarities to a slow-motion train wreck, in that you just couldn't look away once you'd noticed it happening, but it was different in that it was really fun to watch everything unfold and fall apart.

480 Tiny Hobo is definitely a stray, though I don't think she's feral. She's way too easy about getting treats, coming closer to see if the outstretched hand has treats.... I figure ferals avoid all humans all the time, though I'm sure they love food too.

The first cat I lived with, Thera, was also a stray and was also really talkative, and really loud. When she finally decided living inside was preferable to living outside, she settled in nicely but would never stop talking.

She would be on the ground floor and I upstairs, and people would call me and say, "Yeah, the printer is still not...wow...is that your cat?" She was that loud.

484 I need moron help! Apparently I am the first person to notice that the helicopter video of the Crutcher shooting caught, by freak coincidence, the exact moment when Crutcher reached into his SUV, visible through the moonroof as the helicopter flew past the opposite side of the SUV from where Crutcher was standing. Clear proof that Officer Shelby is telling the truth when she says that Crutcher reached into the SUV and that that is when she shot him. The first degree murder charge against her absolutely will not stand. It will have to be withdrawn. NO charge will stand, or it is a Zimmerman-prosecution level travesty. Short post with screen-grab at my link. Please help me pass the word!

485 Bubblegum Crisis was AIC and Artmic. Character designs by Kenichi Sonoda.

Gunbuster had the Gainax trademark hot-headed redhead - Jung Freud. But she was not the main character who would pilot the Gunbuster against the alien menace.

486 Gainax gained prominence with the bouncing boobs of Gunbuster. I can't really remember what that series was actually about; as far as I can remember, it was all about boobs.

Posted by: The Deplorable Prothonotary Warbler at September 23, 2016 12:28 AM (0OG8D)

The giant robot was as prominent as the boobs. Some nice sci-fi elements as well, such as the pilots who spent time in ships traveling near light speed having to deal with the consequences as everyone else aged so much faster by their perspective.

And the end is still amazing.

Bottom line: your coordinates are not (0,0,0).

I told him that whatever they saved on knocking him out, they used up on me. By virtue of *cough* years of drinking coffee all day, and Scotch all night, I needed enough anesthetic to drop a charging rhino in his tracks.

Cytochrome P450, FTW!

crap on Win 8.1 (most of which I'd already done!) like CEIP, intrusive

A lot of the technology is being borrowed from Linux. In Linux, once you select a "distro", you can load anything supported by that distro using a simple command -- and everything supported by that distro is similarly kept current using the same "package manager" software. The two most popular are "yum" and "apt-get", but they work in very similar ways. Pretty much everything in Linux is logged.

It's helpful to know both lingos -- I had a good laugh with Pixy when he got covered with 40,000 lines of "yum-barf" one night. [Ace, like most sites, runs on virtual machines -- that way, the occasional 1,000+ comment thread doesn't overload a real machine -- the site just borrows time from other real processors that have slack. This, however, means that the usual desktop interfaces have to connect to files, as a virtual machine has no physical interfaces. On that occasion, Pixy had run a "yum update" that, IIRC, bricked the virtual machine.....and produced 40,000 lines of complaints along the way.]

618 @476 They went on to make Bubblegum Crisis, a sci-fi OAV series loosely based on Blade Runner, with an all-girl cast wearing power armor and fighting rogue androids that they called Boomers. It's one of the all-time anime classics, and you can't really consider yourself a proper otaku if you haven't watched it.
------------------

It should be clarified here that you're referring to the original BGC, all of the episodes of which are titled either BGC 2032 or BGC 2033. The mess known as Bubblegum Crisis 2040, which was a reboot made much later, should be avoided at all costs.

I was mentioning to a friend of mine one of my complaints about the Bond movie 'Skyfall' - namely, how Q forgets the basics of computer security - and a few days later I had a very interesting conversation with that same friend.

He *also* happened to notice that there was an unfamiliar USB drive hooked up to the computer. So he asked the employee at the counter where the drive had come from, and was informed that the employee had found the drive, and wanted to know what was on it.

/sigh

My friend and his employee had rather sudden discussion about basic computer security.

LOL. Nah, the government had a program to bring Western scientists to be there in residence to goose things along. It was actually fun; I had friends there from grad school, and made new ones, and I like Japan and love Japanese cuisine (which has an amazingly ingratiating effect, I found out).

Tsukuba is kinda in the middle of nowhere, though, and so when my then fiance (now wife) came to join me and suggested we see a English language movie playing locally, I broke out in hives. I'd seen the damned thing about eighteen times already, as the only thing in English I'd seen/heard in many months.

That, and fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so when we got to Hawaii, and a college friend suggested we go out for seafood, I lost it. Prime rib, stat!

It's based on an idea going back to the '70s, "formal verification". Make software be like a mathematical proof, a theorem. To do that, you need to make a precise, mathematical statement about what a program was supposed to do. A "formal statement" of function. It is tedious, to say the least.

OK, going off on a wild riff from that....just try to keep up. Home Depot is selling a video projector for $70. It's limited to mp4s from a SD card or a USB drive -- I'm wondering if it can be driven off a Raspberry Pi. It can do 1920x1080 video resolution and I'm wondering where I might inject this....so I take one apart.

The big fat chip inside is a TSUMV59XUT-Z1. Turns out, that's made by MSTAR semiconductor in Taiwan, a spinoff from UMC....that was recently purchased by MediaTek, another Taiwan company. I live in Silicon Valley, so I figure I have a good chance of finding a local guy to talk to....

And wash out -- Hyderabad, Istanbul, Taiwan....but it turns out that MediaTek is a big player in "wearable technology" where it intersects "the internet of things".

Accordingly, watch out for "Internet of Things" stuff, based on MediaTek chips, with crap security, with Tech Support in Hyderabad.

662 There's a lesson in Enigma for all of us about security. The Enigma design had some cryptographic flaws, but they weren't enough alone. It was German human error and stupidity that made it so breakable.

They had people doing the equivalent of using "password" and "1234567" as passwords.

The German operators even came up with rules supposed to make it stronger that actually made it weaker -- this is related to the human mind's extreme difficulties with understanding randomness and probabilities.

698 El Cajon Gun Exchange? They've got a bad rep with many gunnies locally, but never had a problem - just bought some powder and a few small items though.

Gotta check out some of these stores some time - AO Sword, Wild-built, a few in the Beeramar, er, Miramar area (so many craft breweries now there the new nickname is starting to take).

701 ECGE it is...

yeah, we were going to do a private party transfer there, but the seller said they were uninterested, didn't want to handle the weapon with care, and said it might take hours...

we were there mid-week, no crowd and the staff seemed fairly professional, but one staffer, on the QT, said the owner could be a jerk with little provocation, and he runs the place with an iron hand, so some of that may rub off on others.

we've spent a fair amount of $$ there in a short time, so maybe we get treated different.

still get a better vibe at AO though

727 Two excellent articles in the sidebar.

The first one, about how to talk to NeverTrumpers, is spot on. I've been on the receiving end of the "if you don't vote for A, you're voting for B" argument more times than I can count, and have always rejected it. No, the only way I'm voting for B is by actually voting for B. Voting third party, writing in my cat's name, or staying home in disgust are all perfectly legitimate choices.

The fact that I happen to be a Trump supporter this time around doesn't alter that. I'm not going to try to browbeat or guilt anybody into voting for him. Your vote is your own to use as you please.

What I will say is that this election is not about "stopping Hillary". It's about Nationalism vs. Globalism.


The other article is the one by VDH entitled "A Hard Rain is Going to Fall", because of course I would like an article with that title.

Thanks. I'd like to switch over to oil and gas and be a sparky on a rig, but I don't have the right skill set. I think I could sell myself to the right recruiter, but not sure what one would look for. Had a shot for a position, in of all places Aramco, but that didn't get too far. I mostly want to get back to my studies though, but my previous layoff derailed that pretty well.

As far as family goes, it has been a long and ugly journey. Both my parents had cancer: my dad made it and my mom didn't. I was there caregiver. I don't think my dad quite understands what it was like for me to change my mom's bandages as the Ativan put a hole in my mom's chest-all the way to her chest wall. Reliving it probably isn't healthy either but it is what it is.

I think I could sell myself to the right recruiter, but not sure what one would look for. Had a shot for a position, in of all places Aramco, but that didn't get too far. I mostly want to get back to my studies though, but my previous layoff derailed that pretty well.

As far as family goes, it has been a long and ugly journey. Both my parents had cancer: my dad made it and my mom didn't. I was there caregiver. I don't think my dad quite understands what it was like for me to change my mom's bandages as the Ativan put a hole in my mom's chest-all the way to her chest wall. Reliving it probably isn't healthy either but it is what it is.

Last comment for a while anyway, & It may get me banned, so -

ONT. start @ #433 and follow along. If you're REALLY curious, read to the end. The worst offender was not the one that shit in the punchbowl originally. This "immediate banning by any COB and also unknown commenters" will not end well.

And now, I will exit, stage left..

And I watched a change in you
It's like you never had wings
Now you feel so alive
I've watched you change

I took you home
Set you on the glass
I pulled off your wings
Then I laughed

779 The first rule of ONT is you don't talk about ONT.

Second rule is you don't talk about the stuff that dominates the other daily threads.

It doesn't matter that it is poorly executed, so long as we respond to the fun stuff and ignore any raging autism. I am guilty of bending or breaking these rules, as are most.

And people do come in to vent their problems, and it is right and good that they do that. You'll find that teh horde has swell friends and strangers.

I don't think they go away automatically. I think in the past Ace routinely deleted the offending comments but it is difficult to go back and delete ALL comments.

In the distant past we used to have a thing called "troll busters" where some posters were given blog access rights to delete offending comment text, but not the actual physical comment itself. I think that has gone away though with all the site "server" changes.

812 D.C. Taxi driver (now Uber driver) and an ace of spade's moron says.

Here's a wrinkle missing in all-true discussion on "underserved".
Personal safety.Uber's model has enhanced safety feature: a known and credit worthy fare picked up in the underserved vs taxi model:God wiling I'll be safe with this member of "underserved" in my taxi seating directly behind staring at back of my neck aaaaand God willing I'll get paid.
Added bonus for Uber is the vehicle is inconspicuous looking unlike those godawful tacky taxi plumage that screams ATTACK ME, VANDALIZE ME. where SJWs would happily oblige.I prefer Uber model, cuz 1-i want to safely return home at day's end, and 2-i want to get paid.Neither is a certainty for a taxi in the "underserved" WaPo/WUSA9 senario.

I once found myself in Indian-head highway area a qualified "underserved". Saw this smiling young black man approach me.Before I could reject his ride request-legally-for a dc cabbie may not solicit fare in another jurisdiction, i.e. Maryland, he utters three words:I am Nigerian!. translation? I need a ride. I'm black but not an African American black.You may feel safe with me in your cab.
He had a ride, I had a fare and a couple of box in my pocket and all was well.

A post-Obama taxi joke. As first African American president, Obama has now the Air Force One at his beckon call but if he ever tries to hail a taxi in the district he is out of luck. And this:majority of taxi drivers in the district are African Americans themselves who call the "underserved " home.Just say'n.

819 Good Morning Morons. Today is Friday, September 23, 2016. On this day in 1641 the English ship Merchant Royal, carrying a treasure of over 100,000 pounds of gold (worth over 1 billion pounds today) and 400 bars of silver, plus chests of pieces of eight from the "New World", was lost at sea off Land's End near England. To this day, after numerous searches, this wreck and all that gold and silver has never been found (or at least publicly). Note that in the law "finders are not keepers" as the old saying goes. The governments of the world ALWAYS want their cut, whether it belonged to them in the beginning or not. Note also that it is an international crime to find treasure and not report it.

Too many liars in the MFM and out of town communist radicals from Oakland and Chicago are stirring the pot. If Charlotte had a decent mayor those radicals from out of town would be located and "banned" to jail for perpetual "shit stirring". Or since they are crossing State lines for their crap if we had a decent administration the feds would be arresting them. Instead the feds are helping them stir shit (more later).

The House oversight committee voted Thursday to recommend holding the former State Department IT specialist who set up Hillary Clinton's private server in contempt of Congress, after he again ignored a subpoena to appear before the panel.


Of course every Democrat on the Panel voted against it despite the fact that the violation was in plain sight and the courts have long ruled that congressional panels have the authority to issue legal subpoenas. Again, Elija Cummings goes into an orgasmic fit while foaming at the mouth and chewing the dirt. But this time it does no good and when the TV cameras are turned off he wipes his mouth and leaves for a $10,000 a plate fundraiser in Atlanta. Of course the corrupt DOJ will ignore this one too which is also a felony. Note that I may have made that up about the fundraiser.

I have that by half a dozen people. At the top of my list right now is the versions covered by Roy Rogers and by Riders In the Sky

Thanks for the VNN, Vic!

856 Wow Vic. Lots to ponder here. Thank you so much for all your work.

We tried real hard to replace Pat Roberts (Rino Kansas / Virginia) with Milton Wolf. Some other leaders in our group challenged his residency in Kansas. The hearings was "power crushed truth, you peasants".

I worked hard for Dr. Milton Wolf. Alas.

Those reports yesterday that Trump had agreed to "sit down" debates may have been premature.

.I can't believe that hillary's team agreed to this. There is no way she can stand that long without something happening or the crowd seeing her being "helped" onto the stage.

860 Good Morning! I hear there was a "riot" in Foxboro, MA last night...HA!...wonder if Goodel is going to institute a curfew of some sort down the road....This is a true testament to Coach Belichik and the New England coaching staff. They recognize talent and know how to get the best out of that talent.
A great win all the way around. Every player stepped up to support a rookie QB in a huge game. Congrats Patriots !!!

861 Morning, 'rons and 'ronettes. Thanks for the news, Vic.

Some beauty to start the day - the lovely Myrna Loy, as photographed by the legendary George Hurrell in 1933. I could just fall to my knees and worship this:

862 Kathy Miller saying "no racism before Obama" is pretty dumb, for a campaign person especially. Of course there is a good point in there, that Obama's black liberation theology of God Damn America, puts a lot of emphasis on tearing down white man society, on very racist terms.

And under Obama 's reign of terror on traditional America, most stats have gotten worse for black Americans. Farrakhan is right on this ... give Trump a chance, Obama failed them.

The poorer elements (including white and Hispanic) are hurt most by the flood of illegals, and jihadists, and all the crime it brings to those neighborhoods. Just ask the blacks that used to live in Compton, how wonderfully well the diversity magic worked out for them. Mexicans took over via drive by shootings ... it was conquest.

This is probably why Trump's border control promise is penetrating the minority/poor classes. Smart people should agree, demographics is destiny.

How unfair to Hillary! All about "America" nothing about either "stronger" or "together"!

Is it one thin dime?

871 I believe 4 little bottles of "5 Hour Every" just be for the start of the debates, should perk Hillary right up. And maybe in injection of some magic elixir, will do wonders. We will have to see if her eyes rotate as she talks.

Maybe drug testing might be ordered in the future for all candidates

874 So some Republicans helped pass a mine worker union pension bailout out of committee. Of course bailing out even the underfunded public pension funds is a bad idea. (IL has the worst credit rating in the US, with $120B or so debt, from Dems giving luscious pensions, early retirement, etc. to teachers that bribe them, but refusing to face the voter consequence of actually funding them, despite a law that said pensions had to be funded)

In this case, at this point, if it wins the coal miner vote in PA, go for it. But the vote may not be till after the election, in which case, no. But with a revived coal mining industry, they might be able to fund it themselves.

For Trump to win some of the rust belt, he needs those union guys, who like Trump on trade. Now is not the time to give them the finger on pensions, especially as Hillary promises to shut them down. (they actually might deserve a little redress of grievances since the EPA wants them to "clean" their CO2 emissions, and Obama/Hillary promised to sink them on behalf of watermelon commies)

Many public and private pensions played games with their long term promises. And now with manipulated zero interest rate policy, the bond portion of those funds is sucking eggs. Most of those pensions used 7.5% or more projected returns, and have large bond portions that are now artificially depressed. The stock portion may prop them up for now, but that is also artificial. (Yellen is still pouring liquor to keep the party going, and considering passing out meth to avoid hangover)

Reaping the whirlwind ... bring back the coal, all energy ... union vote for the win.

877 Superlate on this,. but Japanese single malts can be mindblowingly good.

Yoichi 15 or 18 year old are ...ummmmm....revelatory. Had a bottle of 15 of my own. Would crack it with a friend. The archangel Gabriel would come down. Asmodeus would pop by. We'd talk. It was very fine.

Hibiki is good, but over-rated, I think.
