Overnight Open Thread (6 Mar 2015)

Saudi Arabia might be drafting nuclear back-up plan. Of course they are. Egypt is too. And we're falling over backwards helping Iran get theirs.

Homemade Guns

Pretty impressive collection of homemade guns.

Hobo Meat

Damn it. Alaskan congresscritter suggests introducing wolves as a solution to the homeless problem. Get yer hobo meat morons before the wolves do.

Snickers Pass Aerial Maneuver

DOJ and Ferguson

I know y'all won't be surprised by this. Holder frames Ferguson PD for racism using bogus 'disparate impact' stats.

Outrageously, the nation's top prosecutor failed to control for factors that explain the racial "disparity" in traffic stops, such as speeding, DUI, expired license plates, headlight, seat-belt and child-restraint violations and other reasons for being pulled over.

Holder's own department statistics show that African Americans, on average, violate speeding and other traffic laws at much greater rates than whites.

The Justice Department's research arm, the National Institute of Justice, explains that differences in traffic stops can simply be attributed to "differences in offending."

Duh. For another example, "Seat-belt usage is chronically lower among blacks," the NIJ says in a 2013 study. "If a law enforcement agency aggressively enforces violations, police will stop more black drivers."


If Holder is going to dismantle the Ferguson PD, then he may as well dismantle the other 1,800 PDs as they will have similar numbers.

Health Care

Free health care is killing the states. I guess its not free then.

Booty

Why men like women with big curvy butts except it's not really their butts that is the attraction according to a new study on lumbar curvature.

researchers discovered that instead of it actually being the muscular structure of the gluteus maximus or any buttock fat (or silicone implants) discerned atop or inside the butt that was a main factor of attractiveness to males - it was actually the curvature of the spine that attracts the male species.

I spent time in Nigeria. One of the tech schools there was found to be using the machine shop to produce AK-47's from basic stock, sheet metal, and tool and die machinery. By the students, for extra cash, on the side.

Nobody was particularly surprised. In fact, most Nigerians I met thought them to be a very enterprising group of young men.

Paul McCartney is too old to play Paul, even though they look a lot alike. You need someone who looks a little lost and innocent, with a sense of honor, a boy in man's clothing who badly wants to grow up fast.

I think Liam Neeson might be able to pull off Alec. You need some grizzled wisdom. But maybe he's a touch too Alpha in his presentation for that.

34 Here's the thing, cities like Ferguson absolutely should not have their own police departments, because they really are not much more than roadside bandits, collecting revenue for a city that does little or nothing OTHER than collect revenue.

St. Louis County is a mess of jumbled municipalities. It has nothing to do with race, however, as you can go up and down the 270/255 route and find all sorts of nonsense just like in Ferguson, and some of the worst practically never see a black person all week long.

37 The thing about the Ferguson report is that it admits up front that blacks make-up 67% of the residents. Now, I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that the other 33% is white--and much older. And they probably don't go out much at night,
Now, wouldn't it make sense that the police would have more contact with the part of the population that comprises two-thirds of the population? And tends to be much younger?

64 So there I was, last Saturday, about five in the afternoon, pulling into
my driveway after an unscheduled day at work putting the finishing
touches on another Vac System. Inside the house....., Wife, kids, pets,
home, weekend, (only partially interrupted)!

Couple hours later,
call from the boss. I'm leaving first thing early the next morning for a
lovely week in Ohio. I took one of the new guys with me, so we'd have a
full crew, (I played driver). Barely there for 24 hours and New Guy was
busted for trying to shoplift a wireless router from Walmart. After
about an hour of fruitless negotiations with the security guy, (who hid
his face from me the entire time), to settle the issue without the
police.....up to offering to just buy the damn router, the cops arrive,
and New Guy is marched out to the police car in cuffs.

Boss not
happy at hearing that news, New Guy fired immediately. Around midnight,
we picked up Ex New Guy at the 'detention facility', and drove him to a
motel his friends/family paid for. I made sure he had a few bucks for
food, and we left him there.

The weirdest part of that day was
the Walmart security guy refusing to face me while we talked.....it was
just.....weird. Yeah, I understand why, still really odd though.

Oh.....if
I haven't mentioned it yet, a week without internet. It sucked.
(Company apartment, which apparently doesn't rate internet connectivity.
It was kind of fun explaining to the boss today that I didn't finish
the technical drawings and schematics because I had no internet).

Lastly.....home again! Captain Moon, ignite that chicken casserole! Hoowah!

115 Has anyone else noticed very recently that "rights or understanding" for transgendered is the new SJW squirrel? Nightline was doing a piece on the poor souls born with 3 chromosomes and docs arbitrarily deciding their gender. then I saw a FB poster on how they only want to use the bathroom of the gender they identify with to PEE. I didn't take time to comment that if they are too prissy to go in and use a stall in the loo that matches their biological plumbing they should just stay home curled in a fetal position.

But it seems gay marriage is pretty much a done deal so now we have to turn some social norms inside out for the 1 in a million born with crazy chromosomes or the 1 in 100K with mental issues with their gender.

Posted by: PaleRider at March 06, 2015 10:38 PM (dkExz)


New?

That's been the new SJW hotness for a while now.

They legally won year and years ago when "gender" was listed separately from "(biological) sex".

Within a decade it will be illegal to refer to someone other than their "chosen" pronouns.

"Gender is a social construct" isn't just a silly thing SJWs are saying... it is actually the literal law quite often.

The thing is, now that we've divorced "gender" from any biological grounding, anything can be a gender, and I literally mean anything.

http://politicalhat.com/tag/gender/

Now they are even saying the biological sex is a "social construct." Yes, there are rare cases where a person is born with X0 chromosomes, or XXY, &c. And yes there very rare cases where the hormonal environment in the womb produces someone with a superficial sex that is contra their chromosomes.

That such medical abnormalities exist are shown a proof that sex isn't real.

How doe they do this? They take a manichean world view where either biology determines both biological sex and gender, or else it is all a social construct. All they have to do is prove that their strawman isn't 100% perfect, and then declare that they're point of view must be the absolute truth because it stand in total opposition of a point of view that isn't 100% perfect.

The left consider people to be tabula rasa to be molded by the collective.

This is a tenet of their faith.

The real question is this: What comes after the trannies?

Today I got my new Foreman grill with ceramic grill plates.

I grilled chicken for din-din, chicken for tomorrow's din-din, and a steak for tonight that I just ate.
The steak, which I vacuum sealed after I cooked it, was delicious, like it just came off the grill. Two minutes in the microwave while still in the vacuum bag.

Cleanup with the ceramic plates was easy. But this grill with the ceramic plates takes a lot longer to heat up than the teflon grill plates and doesn't really get hot hot.

Incidentally, marinating with the vacuum sealer is amazing. It literally takes minutes. You like teriyaki? You can make teriyaki steaks.

No offense, but that free healthcare you're getting isn't free. Other people are paying hundreds of dollars per month for their own health insurance AND paying taxes to cover your medicaid. Including people, like relatives of mine who have diabetes. Since Obamacare went into effect, the health insurance premiums that I pay have sky-rocketed. They went up over $130 per month this year alone.

I know a lot of people with diabetes, etc. who work and pay for their health insurance.

For a long time, the game of baseball was thought to have been invented in Cooperstown, NY, and the Baseball Hall of Fame was built there. It has been a place of pilgrimage for baseball fans for decades.

But more recent research indicates that baseball was actually invented in Hoboken, NJ.

Somehow, an announcer saying of a player, "He's bound for Hoboken" just doesn't have the same ring as "He's bound for Cooperstown".

I remember seeing one of those HBO "sex" shows some time ago. Cross dressers. One guy was married, and he talked about being picked up by men, something he said he wasn't really into, and would describe the experience as being both foul and exciting.

I don't know, if you reach a certain age, and you haven't yet figured out what type you are, that's pretty messed up. I get that some people like anything/everything, or they don't care as long as they get off, but it goes beyond a question of morality. You're supposed to be a human being. You either connect with other humans, or you act as a receptacle for fluid waste.

They do for me. Or rather, one of them does. I had to try a few before I found the one that worked for me, but I don't think that's atypical. Not like the stimulants they give out for ADD, I don't think (never had them, but I assume stimulants are like eachother). No crash, no desire to sleep to make up for being too cranked up, just an improvement in focus that makes me really want to work on those days when I'm not feeling it.

The remake now uses a faithful remake of the theme song. That is what I would hope they would do for UFO and not try to put a new spin on it.

Hey AoP what was that Canadian case. Back in the 60s or 70s I think. Child born with both rudimentary sets. They consulted a top flight doctor who told them to raise the kid as a boy or a girl - forget again. Started writing papers on how wonderful everything was with the child. While in fact the child grew up miserable. Turns out the doctor basically used the child and parents as guinea pigs. And the child is still messed up as an adult.

They made him a her. Later surgery was done to try to make her back into a he.

He got married and had a kid but later committed suicide. Very sad and criminally negligent on the part of the original doctor.

Tragic.

I've encountered two such individuals this past week alone. They're out there (no pun intended).

The thing about sexual deviancy, it probably comes as no surprise that behind these things there are some messed up childhoods and other related bad happenings.

So on the one hand, there's this effort to create an image of normalcy, and on the other hand, you have a bunch of people for whom their sexual deviancy is NOT the problem, but a symptom of the problem.

And we're not allowed to talk about that. So we hold parades, and pretend it's all so normal.

Eh, I try to practice tolerance, in the sense that, your lifestyle has no bearing on me and my own. So I have no need to explore with you the nature of your abnormalcy. You aren't going to get under my skin, and I'm going to see to it you stay out of my face.

Here is the comment I referenced :


You really are ignorant of Illinois politics. The state has had many republican governors and legislatures and all (dems included) have contributed to the financial problems. But the real reason Illinois is in financial difficulty is because the Constitution of 1970 requires a flat tax. That tax is very low and does not come even close to paying the bills. Then to top it off the legislature (Dems and Repugs) have repeatedly given tax breaks to large corporations that also diminishes revenue. They are all too afraid to do the unpopular thing and advocate for an amendment to the constitution to allow a graduated income tax and to refuse the big business extortion.

403 341 One of the articles I read about that race had a commenter who stated that the reason Illinois has problems with revenue is because they passed a law which limited taxes. If only they could raise taxes then everything would be fine.
--------------------------------------

Back when Democrats controlled both houses of the legislature and the governors office, they passed a law in 2011 raising the state income tax "temporarily". The increased revenue was supposed to go exclusively to paying down Illinois' large backlog of past due bills, pensions and pension bonds, etc.

the income tax rate on individuals went from 3% to 5%

The dems voted for it because it was "temporary" and would sunset in 2014. Of course they planned to fix that and make it permanent, but 2014 ended and so did most
of the income tax increase, although it reset to 3.75% not 3%.

So electing Republican Bruce Rauner as governor has had at least one positive result so far.

Dems still control both houses of the legislature so they could try and pass another tax increase, but this time it might get vetoed.

If you are let it burn and believe that someone this time the people of Chigaco will wake up and go "gee, Leftist stuff is silly" after a full-out Chavista gets through with them, you vote for Garcia.

But Rahm is now a kingmaker in the Dem party. If he goes with the Clintons in 2016 instead of the Obama wing candidate, then the Obama wing of the Dem party will lose out on power for the next 4-8 years and all the sweet sweet money that comes with it.

Gore getting the nomination in 2000 allowed the Clinton folks to stay in power in the Dem party and set the Clintons up with a large inflow of cash. So, even though Kerry won the nomination in 2004, the money still flowed to the Clintons because he wasn't able to take over the party. Once Obama won, his wing took power in the party, and they have been angling to set him up like the Clintons, but only if his candidate wins the nomination in 2016.

Actually, the Obama wing's candidate getting the nomination then losing the General Election in 2016 would be the best for the Obamas so that they can keep the power in the party to 2020 and in likelihood, 2024.

At the bottom of it all is always one thing, money.

First off, an IIllinois Republican Governor is likely to either be serving time or has served time...and, they would make Boehner look like Cruz. They ain't like an Alabama Republican.

Ask this twatwaffle how a 66% increase in income taxes was possible then in, I believe, 2011.

Lastly, This scrunt is obviously referring to taxing big, rich, evil Corporations. Ask them how many have left IL since 1970, and why.

I grew up there. They have become fcuking insane. I left in 86, but still go there for biz twice a year or so. Last trip an IATSE Union guy tried to advance the argument that the gold we have in Ft. Knox is only valued at $22/oz, so we have plenty of money to spend. When I asked him why we were then approaching $18T in debt with all this wealth laying around, crickets. They have lost their shit, for good.

424 Lots of moving parts in Chicago's mayoral election.

Barky was here a couple weeks ago and signed the paperwork for the Pullman neighborhood to become a National Historic something or other. Supposed to help shore up the black vote.

The carrot of the Obama Presidential Library is being dangled - oh better elect Rham and give us 20 acres of parkland or the library will go to NYC and Columbia. Also supposed to help shore up the black vote.

But Rham has picked fights with Chicago's cops for 4 years now (hmm like a certain NYC mayor) and the cops are a big voting block - city requires them to live in the city limits so they all vote.

And Chicago is a sanctuary city, so it's chockfull of illegals - a problem Rham himself created.

Rahm got 45% and Garcia got 33% in the last election. That means that there are 22% of the voters that make up the "undecided". To win, Rahm needs 1 out of 4 to vote for him, Garcia needs almost all of them to do so.

483 cthulhu, I'm not kidding about the homeless coming to CO for the pot. Many of them come here thinking they can work in the industry, but most have some kind of record. State law says that if you have a record, no workee in the industry. Once they're here, they go on some sort of public assistance, then they can sit around and get high. It even made a mention on the local news, and then the story got buried.

We are the largest city in our region of the state, and all the little small towns put their homeless problems onto a Greyhound bus to come here. There was a small convenience store across the street from the bus station that sold so much wine and beer that the city got the ABC to pull their license.

As bad as it is here, when I lived in Richmond, VA back in the 80's it was worse. They got everybody in the state's undesirables. When you walk down a street and some panhandler chases you into a building asking for money and then corners you in the elevator, it makes you understand that there is nothing that can be done for these people.

Especially when the stench of piss, booze, BO and shit hits your nose and makes your eyes water. Then, you notice the brownish stain going down the back of their pants where they have freshly shit themselves. Joy, joy.

The few I've watched on HBO I watched in past few months
Band of Brothers

I love on demand.
I watched Sopranos & SATC as they aired & don't think I can watch again, especially the latter.

544 Carol, I haven't been hitting the library of late so I'm rereading (sometimes re-re-rereading) various history books on my shelves. I can't stand cable 'news', any of 'em.

Only 4-1/2 hours 'til QPR vs. Tottenham and at 12 is the FA Cup with Aston Villa vs. West Brom. I love the FA Cup tournament, there's no other like it. All clubs in England and Wales can enter. One FA Cup match recently had mighty Man United vs. Bradford Town, a separation of about 70 spots between the two, with Bradford Town something like 4 or 5 leagues lower than the top flight. It'd be like the Staten Island Yankees playing the St. Louis Cardinals for reelz, not just a tune-up. There are even the occasional 'Joe's Bar and Grill' teams vs. established 'name' clubs. For those guys, such games are their World Cup, with potential top tier contracts up for grabs. Love my football, the round one.

I'll take the Barclay's Premier League over cable news gibberish and hogwash any Saturday/Sunday/Monday, and sometimes Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday (depending on holidays).

Carol, which Patton book are you reading? IMO, the only good one was written by Martin Blumenson, who actually served under "Old Blood and Guts" and doesn't treat him like either a faultless god or a bloodthirsty wacko.

Most of the Patton bios I've read go for the latter, which is unfair to GSP. But understandable, I guess...so many writers are PC liberals.

557 "There are no more freezing temperatures after this in the ten-day forecast, just days in the 60s and 70s. "

Clear evidence that supports the religion theory of GlowBull Worming.

558 I'm cheerful enough...it's already 21 degrees here. I'm thinking about breaking out shorts and t-shirt!

Later in the week it's supposed to be in the high 40s, and we may have a night or two when the temp doesn't drop below freezing. Maybe some of the 100-plus inches of snow we've gotten will finally start to fade away....

What really cheers me so far is not having seen any reports of new Choom Boy treason yet today. I'm sure Vic will fix that, chop-chop.

559 100 inches of snow. I can't even imagine that. We've got some big drifts from the wind by the propane tank, but only about 4 inches on the flats to melt.

Do yourself a favor: don't try to imagine it!

I've seen worse, but in Alaska and Norway. And then only for a few days at a time, so I didn't have to live with it. At least we can drive when necessary, which is good because we only have sidewalks uncovered downtown; walking is something of an adventure.

Heh, yesterday morning I noticed that there were crescents of snow on the north side of every tree. All the same shape. Cute. And soon gone.

Global Warming would be our friend... if it were true.

Boston is about 30 miles away.

It can stay there.

You don't really get a true picture of how nosy, clannish, mindlessly liberal and snooty people in the NE really are until you live in a small town. I'm in a small, small town.

I get the impression that the only people who loved GSP were the troops who served with him.

Wish we had someone like him in the military today.

570 So help me out here.

Sen. Menendez.

Good guy being railroaded?
Another bad guy who got caught with his hand in the jar?

The fact that Holder is going after him sort of leads me to believe that in this case, it's retribution for blocking Obama's desired plans.

50 words or less?

What makes this year different from any other year in my memory is not the amount of snow but that hardly any of the snow melted.

I dont remember old snow hanging around this long.

575 Mr. Scribbler,
We need a real man who feels his destiny & life's work is to be a warrior.
With pussified ROEs now, how can anyone be like Patton.

He was almost removed because he was in hospital with men injured seriously & one was crying. So he slapped him, he shouldn't have but most of mail was positive.

Indeed. I love the completely vapid stare when one points out that it's far, far easier to grow pretty much anything in warmer soil than what we've had the past 4 fall/winter/spring here...

But hey, eat local. Or something. Pass the coffee.

We had nearly 7.5 feet in three weeks, that's the difference this year.

I changed from WBZ to Fox & Dennis Kucinich is on.

Vic, two years ago this morning:

And while Rand Paul was fighting Obama's lawlessness, 12 RINOs sat down to eat with the choomking to discuss ways to sell us out on the budget. Allegations that Graham had to stay over to crawl under the table were not proven.

591 Is it Jane D'oh who posted the link for the Great Horned Owl mother and owlets?. That's really cool. Here's a live cam of a baby bear in a shelter. I hunter stumbled on a ground den and had to shoot the mother to protect himself. This baby bear's brother died but he's still coming along. Theres no sound with this, but you can click below the link to get the sound he makes:

Four years ago was before Vic started his news duties, apparently.

Gabe's post was math. joncelli reported gas was "$3.499/gal in my little corner of southeast PA." Truck Monkey wrote, "Shattner woke the space shuttle astronauts up this morning."

Space shuttle? What's that? Ancient history.
