3 Good Morning Morons. Today is Wednesday, March 25, 2015. On this day in 1634 the first English settlers arrived in St. Mary's County to found the colony of Maryland. It was founded by Catholics who were being persecuted in England at the time. They did not start passing obnoxious gun control laws to hamper the freedom of their citizens until later.

8 It seems that temperatures are not the only thing our government is lying to us about.


Crime stats published by the FBI and relied upon by the media distort the gun violence and leave the public with the impression "mass shooting" incidents are a much bigger threat than they really are, according to a criminologist and Second Amendment scholar. (Tom Lott)


So in order to enhance his stupid gun control crap Obama has the FBI out there ginning up a pack of lies for him. You can not trust a damned thing that comes from the federal government under Obama. But I am sure the MFM will spread this "news" far and wide. <sarc>

Just more hot air and how about a true description. It is not controversial, it is ILLEGAL. When will someone be charged with criminal contempt? When will someone go to jail. Can't do any of that. Well then, when will somebody be impeached? Oh, that's off the table.

48 New Mexico has passed a law ending civil asset forfeiture in NM. Other States should follow here. But this article would lead you to believe that States had previously passed laws that allowed civil asset forfeiture. That would be wrong. There has never been any law passed that allowed police to take your property without being convicted of a crime. They just do it because they like money. Every time someone has challenged them on this they lose.

89 The only case of windshield failure that I know of relates to a British made passenger jet. The windshield was attached from the outside and a repair crew used the wrong sized bolts when replacing the windshield. The pilot's windshield blew out at altitude, sucked the pilot out of his seat and plastered him against the fuselage skin, several crew luckily grabbed the pilot to hold him, and the copilot managed to safely land the plane. The pilot even survived.

92 The only way I could believe terrorism is if someone had smuggled a gun aboard, and once they achieved cruising altitude and were cleared to move around the cabin, stormed the cockpit and shot both pilots in the head.

That should be a pretty easy scenario to discount if they have the cockpit voice recorder.

A bomb would have brought the plane down much more quickly than an 8-minute descent.

Probably wasn't a good idea to say it out loud, but Carson is most likely correct This is from healthyplace(dot)com in an article called Narcissist vs. Psychopath:

"When the egocentricity, lack of empathy, and sense of superiority of the narcissist cross-fertilize with the impulsivity, deceitfulness, and criminal tendencies of the antisocial, the result is a psychopath, an individual who seeks the gratification of selfish impulses through any means without empathy or remorse."

96 Here is the flight track log for this flight. Everything seems normal from take off. Even have a brief hold at 30k before it ascends again. Then levels out at 38,000ft for three minutes. There is a slight loss of altitude - air turbulence? - and then at 0531EDT the plane initiates its final descent. And at 0535EDT is the last altitude reading of 24,100ft.

I'm wondering if a smallish bomb created a sudden decompression. Basically the plane flew itself into the mountain after the pilots were incapacitated.

--

How come no texts or tweets from any of the passengers? They were descending rapidly for 8 minutes - that would have made at least some of them nervous. So maybe the whole plane was depressurized and everyone unconscious.

123 The Helios 737 crash occurred due to depressurization. Bad maintenance caused the leak. Knocked out everyone on board. Plane continued flying on autopilot towards Greece. F-16s were scrambled when no one could contact the plane. The F-16 pilots at first saw no one moving. Then one person was spied in the cockpit. Apparently one of the cabin crew revived, but he had no flight experience and when he did awaken the plane was just minutes away from running out of fuel. It was fuel starvation that finally brought the plane down.

147 Bandersnatch if that is the real CVR, I can understand why its so badly crumpled. Impact into a mountain at over 400KTS will do that.

Judging by the age of the plane, number of flights, and total flight hours; it tends to point more towards something structural.

Looking at Airliner.net someone has already asked about maximum flight hours. It seems the A320 was originally designed for 48,000 cycles and/or 60,000 hours. Assuming the information on D-AIPX is correct and Lufthansa/Airbus have not initiated any fixes to extend life, this plane might have been on borrowed time.

That is the next step in the homos war on Christianity/morality/chastity. They will eventually purge all chaplains that voice any opposition to homosexuality. The military is now essentially one big brainwashing organization for homos.

After thatwill be public schools and sex ed, where students will be forced to learn that homosexuality is "normal" (this is currently done in several states).

No one flies a plane into the ground (or ocean, in the case of the Malaysian airliner) for religious or political reasons without making a public statement to that effect. It just doesn't make sense to die for your beliefs without telling anyone what they are.

As to the small explosion doing a sudden decompression, that would be easily handled because the pilots would know the problem. They have emergency oxygen and plenty of time to get the plane down to altitude.

Cruz, in other words, has wanted this job badly ever since he made his first trip to Washington as the new senator from Texas. Moderate Republicans, Independents, and Democrats may scoff at his presidential campaign as an effort by a young and inexperienced political opportunist, but Cruz clearly believes he has at least a decent shot at the Republican nomination. And why wouldn't he? Establishment Republicans, after all, eye-rolled his 2012 primary contest in Texas, only to wake up the next morning shocked that he defeated a Republican incumbent who had tens of millions of dollars in his war chest and who seemed unbeatable.

274 No one flies a plane into the ground (or ocean, in the case of the Malaysian airliner) for religious or political reasons without making a public statement to that effect. It just doesn't make sense to die for your beliefs without telling anyone what they are.
Posted by: jwest

You stated this as an absolute.We may agree that it makes little sense, but then, it doesn't make sense for a doctor to decide to use his car as a weapon either. Lots of violent shit doesn't make 'sense'.

Moreover, taking out an airliner without a note leaves your surviving family in limbo, not Hell. And the resoruces and headscratching involved mean that people are devoting resources and thinking about this long after the guy is Purina crab chow.

276 Patent, not patent.

Anyway, if the kid is eating breakfast and lunch at school (some kids get free breakfast as well ss free lunch) and the school doesn't have recess, and the bus picks gets them back home when it's too late to play and they have lots of honework, then maybe the parent has a point about the school making the kid fat.
(Not really, but I hate that schools think a kid's weight is any of their business.)

277 Ben Carson calls Obama a psychopath. He is a lot of things but I don't think he is that.


Definition of Psychopath from Dictionary.com: A person with a psychopathic personality, which manifests as amoral and antisocial behavior, lack of ability to love or establish meaningful personal relationships, extreme egocentricity, failure to learn from experience, etc.


One trait common to both Narcissists and Psychopaths: they don't care who they hurt, or how much they hurt them - since it isn't them personally being damaged. In either case Obama wouldn't care what happens to the rest of us - see: Stevens, Christopher, Ambassador - as long as he (Obama) is not harmed. From Obama's perspective it wouldn't matter if DC got nuked by the Iranians - as long as he could get away before it hit. Hey, he didn't get fried so it is all cool.

They get all three meals here and even in the Summer when school is out. I suppose they also get EBT cards for the kids.

280 Is Amanda Knox in serious jeopardy? Really, Italy is letting a complete nutzo prosecutor loose in the face of all that evidence she had nothing to do with the crime? Ace won't like this, not one little bit.

282 No, 30 wasnt long in the tooth back then. In the early 80s I went to see a bunch of old Bond films. I noticed that the women in the films were more mature than then barely legal stuff people think is normal. And the women were quite hot. I'm not into that lolita shite,

283 "Ben Carson is a neurosurgeon. He's probably familiar with psychopaths."



Yeah, maybe, but, Neurosurgery is hardware. Psychopathy is software.



I realize this was a joke, but Psychopathy is not learned behavior; it is a result of wiring and neurochemistry.

http://bama.ua.edu/~alglenn1/docs/Glenn_PCNA_2008.pdf


Psychopathic behavior is common among Communists.

284 Maybe not a psychopath, but a sociopath, certainly.

286 "So who are these conservatives (note plural)? The Krautman is who and he
has never been a conservative. In fact, he is a former Carter man and a
Democrat."

Who gives a damn? "You criticized my candidate? Well let me dig up your history from 30+ years ago!

Geez, louise. Fanboys.

287 Krauthammer voted for Carter when I was a newborn. Cruz capitulated to Obamacare this week. (And I hear he's not even American!)

What!? That's not fair? It's as fair as this girlish need to attack anybody who dares criticizes The Conservative One.
