Morning Thread (2-18-2015)

Mike Rowe on the flap over Scott Walker's college degree.

Here’s what I didn’t understand 25 years ago. QVC had a serious recruiting problem. Qualified candidates were applying in droves, but failing miserably on the air. Polished salespeople with proven track records were awkward on TV. Professional actors with extensive credits couldn’t be themselves on camera. And seasoned hosts who understood live television had no experience hawking products. So eventually, QVC hit the reset button. They stopped looking for “qualified” people, and started looking for anyone who could talk about a pencil for eight minutes.

QVC had confused qualifications with competency.
Perhaps America has done something similar?

3 Good Morning Morons. Today is Wednesday, February 18, 2015 and I now have power! On this day in 2001 Robert Hansen was arrested for spying for the Russians. He was sentenced to 15 life terms w/o parole. He is currently serving those terms in Florence, CO. I hope his ass is getting a good workout.

4 The Obamanites have no backup plan if the Supreme Court rightly strikes down the Obamacare crap because of blatantly illegal gov subsidies. This is good. The real question is "will my insurance rates go back to what they were before this shit started". I doubt it.

5 And how about this load of crap from Fox news.


The Clinton Foundation reportedly is seeing an increase in contributions from foreign governments after ending a self-imposed ban on such donations, raising new ethical questions as Hillary Clinton prepares for a possible 2016 presidential campaign.



No that is not a GD "self-imposed" ban. It is against the law for campaigns to accept donations from foreign countries. But the Clintons have already done this when they accepted donations from China and got away with it. You can violate election laws if you are a Democrat.

46 Morning, all. Thanks for the news, Vic.

I posted a picture of Betty Grable yesterday, but here's another, from 1943s Coney Island:

http://goo.gl/H6kdrS

And here's a Grable joke from the 1945 collection Laughing Stock, edited by Bennett Cerf:

Grable was hosting her 5-year old niece for the weekend. As she was taking a bath, the girl wandered in and asked if she could climb into the tub, too. "All right," Grable answered, and the girl got in. After a few moments, Grable noticed her niece was staring at her very intently. "What's the matter?" she asked.

"I was just wondering," the girl replied, "why it is that I am so plain and you're so fancy."

Here's Grable again, in 1940s Tin Pan Alley:

Perhaps Morons are realists, and realize that Choom Boy will not be deterred by words from someone as insignificant as a "judge." He will do what he damn well wishes, and we all know that.

He is off on a new crusade anyway, replacing Mexicans on the let-'em-all-in list with Syrians. We just don't have enough of his "ISIL" BFFs here yet!

Even some Morons are caught up in the "Too Big To Impeach" horseshit, too. Like Poppin' Fresh, they care more for the Republican Party's future trough-guzzling prospects than in the survival of the U.S.A.

If a decent GOP President were to replace both of Clinton's SCOTUS appointments, both of Reagan's remaining appointments, Thomas, and Roberts, we'd have a solid 7-2 majority.

Imagine, further, if those new appointments were young enough to serve on SCOTUS for decades upon decades.

We shall see. But I've been reliably told by one poster on this blog for the past 6 years that amnesty driven by Republicans was a done deal and yet it still hasn't happened. In fact, contrary to what I've been told, the Republicans are pretty united in fighting it.

Of course Obama continues to be Obama but he is also galvanizing the country against liberalism. As I've been saying for years, once the public gets a real look at liberalism which they only see when a liberal stops lying about his position and actually tries to implement it the public goes against him.

Here's a breakdown of the Gallup poll you referenced. Sure, Dems and liberals march in lockstep with a Dem president as always (only Republicans turn on their own) but he has lost everyone else to become the most polarizing president in polling history. No small feat, that.

Duh.

We ARE "doing worse." It was inevitable that, after more than 200 years, we would get an incompetent America-hater like Choom Boy as Chief Executive; the talent pool of qualified candidates is, after all, finite.

What I find incomprehensible is that he was reelected and, to this day, has no effective opposition. We have sat back and allowed him to continue in his destructive ways, and those who should be agitating to hold him accountable for his violations of both law and common decency seem perfectly content to, at most, let out occasional peeps of mild protest.

Last I heard global warming was going to result in massive increase in rain due to increased humidity, which of course means more floods, tropical diseases and landslides. I guess that wasn't scary enough to get voters to hand over all their money. "Mega drought" has a much more ominous, apocolyptic ring to it than "increased landslides"

.They cant speak out for fear of being labeled racist. It is as simple as that. I am sure there are tons of Blue Dog Dems that hate what he is doing but they wont say anything because it would destroy their political careers. Most Republicans are scared to death of saying anything because they know the press will be all over them and that will destroy any career they have left.

He has an AG that uses race to silence most of his opponents and does not hesitate to call out special teams to "investigate" anything he deems racist.

I have to give Boehner and McConnell some credit they haven't folded yet.

You're assuming facts not in evidence. They haven't tried. Not once.

There are laws -- in the Constitution and elsewhere -- against much of what the Mocha Messiah has done during the past six years. Some fairly stiff penalties are mandated for those activities.

We've had this argument before. I have neither sympathy or admiration for people who, when taking an oath to uphold said laws, do nothing but enable the lawbreaking.

When we went live w/initial consumer exposure, Corp demanded similarly "polished professionals" with mucho engineering capabilities.

The presentations went like, well, as badly as one could imagine.

One of the truck managers went out on the proverbial limb and picked up folks from suburbs, rural areas, and working events (stock shows, rodeos, etc) - in other words, people who actually drove trucks.
The results were incredible. These "real" pitchmen were an absolute success in getting the word across on this new platform...

130 >>You're assuming facts not in evidence. They haven't tried. Not once.

Sure they have. I'm one of those morons (small m morons) that actually watches CSPAN and they have tried numerous times on numerous issues.

For example, the decision on Obama's illegal NLRB packing was the result of a challenge by McConnell and it was successful. That doesn't get as much press as high profile loses but it doesn't change the facts of what happened. They have been fighting a stonewalling administration on numerous issues, from F&F to Benghazi to the IRS. Sure, it's frustrating to fight against an administration that lies and obfuscates but I fail to see how that makes our side bad guys simply because they can't do what nobody could. I challenge you to tell me exactly how they could have gotten the information any faster or more complete from this administration. Legal challenges? Are you forgetting who is running Justice? Impeachment? Ha. We don't have anything close to the number of votes and if we lose, which we would, Obama would get the martyr treatment just like Clinton did and we would actually be in worse shape.

Right now the Republicans are fighting to defund DHS and while the msm and the left are squealing like stuck pigs about the only commentary on the right is to pick the day when the Republicans will fold.

We are much better at circular firing squads than we are at bolstering our team to actually win. The actions by the Texas judge was a huge step in stopping Obama's illegal actions, just the kind of thing you are advocating for, and they deserve serious support from our side. That's how you win these things, with public support. The Dems didn't lose a second declaring they will fight to overturn this decision Where is all the support from our side to make sure it doesn't happen?

Now places like Mali and Niger are having trouble. It's not even the primary bad stuff that gets you, it's the secondary and tertiary stuff.

balls. You don't often see a federal judge call a president disingenuous
which is judge speak for fucking liar.

--

Judge Napolitano was on Megyn Kelly's show last night. He was really emphasizing what a kick in the face this was to Obama's plans to overrun us with his legalized illegals. He seemed to think this really extinguished his "orders", probably for good, or at least until the end of Bammy's wretched term. He said if it went to the 5th(?) Circuit, they are the most conservative and would likely not hear it and the ruling would stand.

156 Navycopjoe,

YHM makes good gear, generally. I assume this is their fluted heavy profile with a non-chromed bore.

Heavy barrel is good for accuracy, but the chrome bore is theoretically not. The trade off is toughness and ease of cleaning. Melonite is the new hotness and supposedly bridges the gap.

Twist rate is all about bullet weight. A 7 twist will excel with heavier 77 grainers whereas the 9 twist not as much. 9 is a good compromise if you'll be running a number of different weights, though. That all said, my 7 twist, 16" chromed Spike's barrel does great with cheap 55 grainers. Go figure.

158 Also, is there a significant difference accuracy wise between a 1/7 and a 1/9 twist?

You may want to match the twist to the weight of the projectile you normally use.

After I hired on w/my 2 year degree, Verizon raised the bar to a 4 year degree.
None of the "Frat boys" wanted to climb poles, crawl under trailers to splice rat chewed wires, etc...
Their buddies didn't get dirty! But they made 2/3rds of their Telco counterparts. These other clowns were (assistant) managing drug stores, working holidays etc. You know, retail, which sux.
The sad thing is these kids either quit or flunked out of climbing school because they were afraid of heights!

People like a narrative.

Fuck qualifications, experience, character and all that other superfluous shit, just tell a story.

The democrats had the best narrative for the past two elections - the first black president. All the ills of racism were going to go away, this paid the debt of slavery and on top of that, he was articulate and clean.

You can't fight a narrative like that, but it only works once (or twice if you have an asshole running against him).

This is why Rowe would so good. You couldn't plan a run-up to a presidency any better than having someone tour the country doing every dirty job there is. You couldn't find anyone who has such a natural, easy to equate to manner.

To hell with politicians. It's time to face reality and play the election game the way it's meant to be played.
