Overnight Open Thread (6-25-2015)

Quote of the Day

You have to credit the Left: Its strategy is deft. If you can make enough noise that sounds approximately like a moral crisis, then you can in effect create a moral crisis. Never mind that the underlying argument - "Something bad has happened to somebody else, and so you must give us something we want!" - is entirely specious; it is effective.

-- Kevin D. Williamson in We Have Officially Reached Peak Leftism

NY Post Film Critic: It's About Time We Retired "Gone With the Wind" Too, Don't You Think?

Yes everything related to the Confederacy and the South in general must be shoved down the memory hole now. Soon Gone With The Wind will join Disney's Song of the South as Officially Permanently Unavailable, only viewable via low quality bootleg copies floating around in the underbelly of the internet. So save your GWTW DVDs cause they're gonna be gold on the black market in a few years.

Play the Fun New Game: Unabomber or Pope Francis?

"The idea of promoting a different cultural paradigm and employing technology as a mere instrument is nowadays inconceivable. The technological paradigm has become so dominant that it would be difficult to do without its resources and even more difficult to utilize them without being dominated by their internal logic. It has become countercultural to choose a lifestyle whose goals are even partly independent of technology, of its costs and its power to globalize and make us all the same."

A. Unabomber  B. Pope Francis

"The Earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth. In many parts of the planet, the elderly lament that once beautiful landscapes are now covered with rubbish. Industrial waste and chemical products utilised in cities and agricultural areas can lead to bioaccumulation in the organisms of the local population, even when levels of toxins in those places are low."

A. Unabomber  B. Pope Francis

Marines May Deploy on Foreign Ships, Because U.S. Navy Doesn't Have Enough

Funny enough Mitt Romney brought up this very point in a 2012 debate and Obama responded with his typical arrogant style of snark:

You mentioned the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military's changed. We have these things called aircraft carriers, where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines. And so the question is not a game of Battleship, where we're counting ships.

Advantage: Romney

Disadvantage: The Marine Corps today

Bristol Palin Having Another Bastard Child

Sigh. So she's now about to be the mother of two children with zero marriages to go along with them. Not a very good record for someone only 24 years old. I'm guessing this is going to put a damper on her preventing teen pregnancy and abstinence speaking career. No word on who the father is but former fiancée Dakota Meyer is the likely suspect.

Couple Flees $1.3M Dream House Over Creepy Letters Signed, 'The Watcher'

And they're creepy indeed. But I'm not sure their lawsuit against the real estate agent and previous owners who didn't mention getting a letter during closing will be successful.

"Why are you here? I will find out," read part of the first of "The Watcher's" letters. "My grandfather watched the house in the 1920s and my father watched in the 1960s. It is now my time."

"Do you need to fill the house with the young blood I requested?" reads another part of the first letter. "Once I know their names I will call to them and draw them to me. I asked the [prior owners] to bring me young blood."

..."All the windows and door in [the house] allow me to watch you and track you as you move through the house," it continued. "I am in charge."

In the name of fighting "misogyny and racism", a proposal has been made to make sure that White males are forces to shut up and listen to the more morally pure non-White and/or non-male students. If there is time left, a Professor might let one of those oppressors speak... maybe.

Just a thought here, but why are we focusing on Roberts, in paticular, and Kennedy, when we should be excoriating the other 4 cunts who side with the democrats every single time? Why do those ass felchers get away with fucking the Constitution?

The Other Four always, no matter what vote straight ticket democrat without so much as a FYTW. Yet the right leaning side of the court is supposed to be "compromising" in their rulings. It's as if the right has accepted the mantle as The Wrong Thinking Party that should slowly cede their position instead of ferociously defending their principals.

"No word on who the father is but former fiancee Dakota Meyer is the likely suspect."



Or worse, maybe the reason why Dakota Meyer is a "former fiancee" is
that Bristol sought the refuge of another guy while her and Meyer were
dating?



Horrible to think about, but that's also a possibility.

In the greater scheme of things breaking down, it isn't important at all. We had SCOTUS take the Constitution on top of a pinball machine (again) today and SCOTUS will do so again in a few days with respect to ghey marriage. Iran is going to get a "deal" in the next week where they're not going to even pretend that they're not working on nuke tech, but they'll get billions in released funds anyway. Let's not forget the upcoming 9-Dash-Line war and the possible Grexit over the next few weeks.

I added the "horrible" line simply because the implication of infidelity strikes at me personality due to what happened between my best friend and his cheating-'ho-of-an-ex-wife. That's all.

If you're going to shit on Bush, and Roberts, and there is plenty of reason to, then get it right. Don't look like a dumbass.

Posted by: @votermom


Ben Shapiro was crowing earlier today about sizing him up in 2005:

FWIW:
"President Bush's Roberts pick disappoints"

"Roberts is not an originalist. There is nothing in his very short jurisprudential record to indicate that his judicial philosophy involves strict fidelity to the original meaning of the Constitution. He is not Antonin Scalia, nor is he Clarence Thomas. At best, he is William Rehnquist, for whom he once clerked. While Rehnquist has been a steady political conservative on the bench, the bench should not be about political persuasion: It should be about upholding the explicit words of our Founding Fathers. There is nothing to indicate that Roberts prioritizes the words of the Constitution above other, more immediate political concerns. "

Oh, and just because I'm coming to loath Huge Hewitt:
"Talk radio commentator Hugh Hewitt labeled Roberts "a home run." "

Take a wild guess as to Huge's take on the ruling today.

But at the same time major dick of the series Simcoe seems to have gotten a major raw deal for the show. Looking him up he comes off as mostly an honorable soldier and was the one that stopped his troops from firing on a retreating George Washington early in the war.

Bristol needs to get off the stage. She became "famous" not just because her mom was a VP candidate who was viciously attacked for her views, but because she got knocked up as a teenager after her mom became a VP candidate. She kept the celebrity train going through any means possible, even as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars. Her engagement and upcoming wedding were pushed by both her and Sarah, especially the military angle, and then was called off at the last minute and now this.

Go make all your mistakes in private, Bristol, you and your family will be better off for it. Along with the rest of us.

228 I know that I would resent the campaigning and the campaigners, but it seems to me that King v. Burwell makes a strong case for an elected Supreme Court.

The lifetime appointments are designed to protect the Court from the political process, and in doing so, to assure that its judgment is above reproach. But a Supreme Court that deliberately rewrites a law is substituting its will for that of the elected Congress. Absent some limiting principal such as the Constitution, there is very little benefit in allowing this protection from the electorate to stand.

252 Thinking about the Rainbow Family, I have to link a Grateful Dead song, "Touch of Grey":

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YSTeJOxiaw

This is from their later period, in the 1980s, and the lyrics are actually rather relevant for today:

Must be getting early
Clocks are running late
Paint-by-number morning sky
Looks so phony

Dawn is breaking everywhere
Light a candle, curse the glare
Draw the curtains I don't care 'cause
It's all right

I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

I see you've got your fist out
Say your piece and get out
Yes, I get the gist of it
But it's all right

Sorry that you feel that way
The only thing there is to say
Every silver lining's got a
Touch of grey

I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

It's a lesson to me
The Ables and the Bakers and the C's
The ABC's, we all must face
And try to keep a little grace

It's a lesson to me
The Deltas and the East and the Freeze
The ABC's, we all think of
Try to give a little love

I know the rent is in arrears
The dog has not been fed in years
It's even worse than it appears
But it's all right

The cow is giving kerosene
Kid can't read at seventeen
The words he knows are all obscene
But it's all right

I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

The shoe is on the hand it fits
There's really nothing much to it
Whistle through your teeth and spit
'Cause it's all right

Oh well, a touch of grey
Kind of suits you anyway
That was all I had to say
It's all right

I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

We will get by
We will get by
We will get by
We will survive

We will get by
We will get by
We will get by
We will survive

253 Iirc, the first time Bristol got pregnant, she WAS on the pill. But had been taking antibiotics (known side-effect).
The pill is really ineffective BC for young women, imo.

The 97% effectiveness rate includes young women. Taking antibiotics can interfere with it's effectiveness and that side effect is told to any woman who receives a Rx.

Instead of blaming a drug with a 94-99% effectiveness rate when taken as directed, maybe the blame should be placed on an unmarrried teenager who puts out. And the unmarried teenage male who puts it in anything with a temperature.

Abstinence has a 100% effectiveness rate. It doesn't require a Rx. a trip to the doctor, or a device.

What galls me, and will provide unlimited fodder for the left, is Bristol's huge abstinence and "don't get pregnant like me" tour she did after knock up #1.
She appears to have not read the lecture material .

That is a fair point -- but said "big disk offline" wouldn't be constantly backed-up and/or sanity-checked, would it?

312 Fear. This is the prevailing condition or state of mind now in America. The fearful outnumber the courageous (which seem an endangered species slipping into the red zone of extinction). The Right is absolutely stricken with fear of the Left. Most every Republican politician in America is totally circumscribed and defined by his fear of the leftist media. There are NO exceptions among the current group of presidential candidates. Don't say Trump isn't afraid -- he is. In the end, he will buckle too from fear. Justice Roberts is stricken with fear -- look at his face. He is terrified of his court incurring the massive wrath and defamatory ire of elitist Progressivism if he upsets Obamacare. The Left is terrified too -- aware of the historic failure of their ideology, projecting their hatreds and fascist longings on the Right, afraid of some new figure emerging who might actually break their morbid spell over the culture and inspire America into its true spirit of liberty and reform.

I have a relative who adopted a baby from such a situation. The girl had three kids before the adoptee, then went on to have two sets of twins and another baby after the adoption. She had no idea of my relative's baby's father, she guessed it was between three and none of them matched DNA.
To this day, the baby's father is unknown.

333 253 Iirc, the first time Bristol got pregnant, she WAS on the pill. But had been taking antibiotics (known side-effect).
The pill is really ineffective BC for young women, imo.

The 97% effectiveness rate includes young women. Taking antibiotics can interfere with it's effectiveness and that side effect is told to any woman who receives a Rx.

Instead of blaming a drug with a 94-99% effectiveness rate when taken as directed, maybe the blame should be placed on an unmarrried teenager who puts out. And the unmarried teenage male who puts it in anything with a temperature.

Abstinence has a 100% effectiveness rate. It doesn't require a Rx. a trip to the doctor, or a device.

What galls me, and will provide unlimited fodder for the left, is Bristol's huge abstinence and "don't get pregnant like me" tour she did after knock up #1.
She appears to have not read the lecture material .

Not at all. The Constitution and the idea of written law is dead in this nation. Dead.

The only solution - the only way for an American Constitutional Republic to exist again - is to have a national divorce and to establish a new American Constitutional Republic, because this nation is toast and it cannot be fixed. They have made too much of a mockery of law and sense and trust.

They can't just turn around and say, "Okay ... we have totally ignored all law and common sense and decency, but FROM NOW ON, we promise - really, really really promise that we'll follow the law." No one with even half a brain would believe that and they shouldn't. The irreparable damage has been done.

Hmmmm....a lot of the problem is that most of the files are Office files, pdfs, mp3s, and jpgs. I would think that they could be pretty well scrubbed, since they normally shouldn't contain anything executable (Office macros to the contrary). And the fiancee is going to raise holy hell if she can't put together her Christmas letter without nearly-free access to jpgs.

Furthermore, it seems unlikely that too many jpgs salvaged from Microsoft systems and lightly scrubbed are going to be loaded with malware for Linux.

But you have certainly given me something to think about, and for this I thank you.

372 312 Fear. This is the prevailing condition or state of mind now in America. The fearful outnumber the courageous (which seem an endangered species slipping into the red zone of extinction). The Right is absolutely stricken with fear of the Left. Most every Republican politician in America is totally circumscribed and defined by his fear of the leftist media. There are NO exceptions among the current group of presidential candidates. Don't say Trump isn't afraid -- he is. In the end, he will buckle too from fear. Justice Roberts is stricken with fear -- look at his face. He is terrified of his court incurring the massive wrath and defamatory ire of elitist Progressivism if he upsets Obamacare. The Left is terrified too -- aware of the historic failure of their ideology, projecting their hatreds and fascist longings on the Right, afraid of some new figure emerging who might actually break their morbid spell over the culture and inspire America into its true spirit of liberty and reform.

Are you done mocking with your base ignorance, eman? Feel like a big man now, pissant?

Read the Liberty Amendments. What we want is a government that is permanently reduced by the Constitution. The size mandated to be small, processes to limit regulation by review, a balanced budget amendment, and about 5 to 10 more specific goals.

But sure, whatever - yeah, we're heading toward an Article V convention with no clue - like you mock. Sure. F*ck yourself sideways, goober.

Problem was he did it to another soldier's car.

Didn't do much damage, but there was a big investigation. Accusations of racism floated, etc.

Ended up the guy who did the damage worked out a deal with the guy who owned the car, and the command couldn't gather enough evidence to charge anybody with anything because their "star" witness was a buffoon who got his material facts wrong.

I'm well aware of what Article V is, and there is not a "Constitutional Referee" that will blow the whistle and tell them to knock it off since this isn't a Constitutional Convention. It will turn into a de facto Constitutional Convention.

Original call will be to limit the size and scope of government, but the amendment won't have enough state's to pass, so their will be some horse trading. "We will give you this if you put in McCain-Feingold, a national gun registry, gay marriage, free internet, bestiality, and a carbon tax." Now there will be enough states to pass it, and we have it all right in our Constitution with no way in hell of ever getting them back out.

No matter what the Constitution says, it will be hijacked.

Remember, the Articles of Confederation said that they could only be replaced if all 13 states agreed, and the "new" Constitution said that it became valid with 9 states ratifying.

Posted by: ManWithNoParty, unperson from Free Market Jesus Paradise at June 26, 2015 01:16 AM (4p7S


Got to fight it like the Dems fight it, the long game.

Yep, we get fucked by the GOP, but the hard left gets fucked by the Dems, and they take it because they know that the Dems eventually will come out to support them.

Was ghey marriage even a thing 25 years ago? No. And Dems politicians didn't support it until 3 years ago, but the gay lobby and hard left has been after it for 25 years.

The Dems were in control of Congress from the 1950's to the 1990's, around 40 years. They lost their majority, but they never acted like they had. The GOP had a majority from 1994 to 2006, but they acted like they were still in the minority because that was all they knew. Now, they have the majority back, and if we want them to have the majority mindset, they need to keep winning elections.

Look at abortion. 40 years ago, Roe v Wade happens and the left rejoices. Conservatives decide that we have to overturn Roe, it is all or nothing. For 30+ years they fought a losing battle on that. Then, someone gets the idea of hitting Roe from the edges, taking baby steps to gut the decision of its power. States start passing laws making abortion mills to have the same standards as medical facilities. Abortion mills say "we can't have the same hygiene standards as a medical facility". Public realizes that the mills are not "Women's Health Clinics" but places of death. Now, the "tolerant" voices on abortion are the Conservatives because we have nibbled away the objections that the middle had to abortion and have left it where the Left won't do anything but abortion on demand, no questions. Now 40 years later, Democrats are fighting to keep open those abortion mills that flourished previously.

I'm almost 50 years old and have been fighting for a long time. I will continue to fight until the sun sets on my life.

And, I have actually fought city hall. I have the financial scars and scars to my reputation to show for it. When you fight the government, they can crush you, and they can fight you for as long as it takes for them to win. And once you think you have won, they just change the law and defeat you. But I am itching for a rematch.

Problem with that analogy: The Progressives were all about destroying and fundamentally transforming society by creating a utopia based on the musings of idjit philosophers. America, though was not created ex nihilo, but based on hundreds of years of social evolution that was abnormal in world history -- it allowed for both virtue and liberty... the freedom to choose, and the wisdom to choose right. It can not be recreated.

At best, we can build our own "Terminus" or hidden redoubt. But this assumes that no one else steps in when the Progressive utopia terminally f**ks up.

Since I avert my eyes or don't go looking, I don't literally see what Blano sees, but fairly sure he/she's right. What this about "peak leftism" or "leftists full of fear," or as our occasional drive-by weirdo Beltway commenters (trumpetdaddy and co.)were saying, that the left was "desperate and flailing".

Huh? OK, leftists by definition are a bit off, and weird, so sure they might be full of fear - but it's probably more the completely delusional kind (theocracy! militias! guns! kitties with long claws!), the crap they always go on about. But fear of - the GOP? The congressional majority? The "conservative" elements of the populace?

In any case, what would a hypothetical creature - an intelligent leftist - be afraid of these days? Point is that the institutional guard-rails are mostly gone: constitution, rule of law. Gone. Oh, you say, but the IRS is not going lax on collection, and the ATF is not telling FFLs to do whatever they want. Of course not. Lawlessness in this sort of case does not mean anarchy, just selective enforcement, malicious and small-p partisan enforcement.

I dream of something to scare "leftists". I don't see any. Help me?

I'll betcha many of them are gobsmacked by how the formerly greatest country on earth simply rolls over to their most absurd commands, like some Anguilla or Equatorial Guinea.

Even here, we have many otherwise sensible commenters showboating their indifference to the CBF, some tossing in their own misinformed bigotries and moral narcissistic dance moves for good measure. As if, in this context, at this time, about this "issue", it was about the trivial substantive question.

Molly, isn't it grand? You might be too young, but this is a taste of what Soviet life was like. Absurd counter-factual statements by the national boss, with no press to refute or dismantle it.

Of course, if there were an opposition party, they might have been raising hell - continuously - with actual facts, about millions of people for the first time unable to afford insurance thanks to the final destruction of the individual insurance market. Marginal people. Small businesses, S corps, self-employed, entrepreneurs. You know, marginal people who "didn't build that". Marginal, and the source of most economic and job growth (esp. in recoveries).

Funny, I can't recall a single statement, event - not a one - at which Boehner or Mitch or a committee chairman had victims of this idiotic unconstitutional social engineering disaster describe the devastating effect its had on their financial security. But, strangely, I DO recall GOP types musing about "fixes" for the state subsidy problem, on the outside chance the SCOTUS did its job and made the obvious ruling (which it didn't, of course!).

Those young enough, or less politically aware, and certainly those who didn't actually spend a lot of their lives directly involved in public policy stuff, probably cannot understand how literally surreal and unbelievable so much DAILY happenings in the US have become. We're years into this, and several friends and myself still cannot believe what we are seeing, on many fronts.

And of course to be even semi-serious, the head-counting would have to wait til next year (industry/"exchange" types have already noted big drop-out effect from first sign-ups).

Then, take THAT number, and substract replacements (people just replacing lost policies).

Then, take THAT number and subtract those who are only "new" consumers of insurance because they were recruited into doing so, and clearly could have afforded something before the "reform" (probably a large %).

I'd bet the net "beneficiaries" of this idiotic catastrophe are outnumbered by just the victims of the destroyed individual market in one state, CA.

519 Excess property? Two options. Form your Family Foundation. You will still pay taxes on it but there is no question on inheritance. It is not owned by the individual but buy the foundation itself. Just make sure you are in charge of writing the bylaws for the foundation. You don't want a bad egg being able to sell the property out from under you.

The government claims 10M signed up for SCOTUSCare. I'm sure more than that have lost their existing insurance, and even more have seen a dramatic increase in premiums and deductibles.

But 10M is a big number, so they keep throwing it out there because saying "3% of the population" would just piss everyone off.

529 Question for all the tech experts who might be reading this:

I have an old external hard drive that was pretty clunky and which I no longer use. A relative expressed a need for one to store some files on, so I offered to give them mine.

This drive is 50gb, and I formerly used it to manually back up everything on my computer. And by everything, I mean everything, including and especially my zombietime stuff.

Now, generally I am very paranoid, and never sell or give away old computers -- I still own every one I've ever had, to prevent "security breaches." But this old hard drive I felt I could successfully wipe.

So tell me: were the following steps I took sufficient for it to be considered "totally wiped"?

First of all, the last backup I did on it filled up basically the entire drive -- 49.8gb was filled with files. So these files already overwrote everything that had ever previously been backed up on the drive. So I felt I only needed to expunge what was currently on there.

So the first thing I did (on my Mac) was throw away all the files into the Trash, but instead of doing the normal "empty trash," (which doesn't expunge the files, but simply tells the computer to "forget" where that data is), I did the supposedly much more sophisticated option called "Secure Empty Trash," which not only 'forgets" the data, but actually expunges it from existence by overwriting it. The message you get when taking this step says "Secure Empty Trash permanently erases the items in the Trash. Are you sure you want to permanently erase them? If you choose Secure Empty Trash, you can never recover the items."

So I chose it, and watched as the entire 49.8gb were "securely" deleted (the whole process actually took several hours).

Next when that was done, I ran a program called "Disk Utility" and selected the drive and chose "Erase Free Space," then chose the advanced option panel and selected "Zero Out Deleted Files" which "writes zeroes over the unused space on the disk once."

There is actually a higher level of security which it overwrites 7 times, and then a crazy level where it overwrites 35 times. I felt those were highly unnecessary for my purposes.

Then, having overwritten the files with zeroes once, I finally did a low-level reformat of the entire drive.

So: Should I be worried that sometime down the line, someone else will come into possession of this drive and somehow manage to recover any of my files?

I felt that I had really done more than enough, but suddenly I got a brief attack of the Worries.

Really, no one (including the relative I'm giving it to) would ever have any reason to forensically scrape ghosts of data off this clunky old drive anyway. And even if they tried for some reason, I feel that I really must have expunged everything that the average person would ever have had the capacity to recover.

So: Should I worry? Or be confident in my multi-level expungement attempts?

Once you overwrite a file with 0s, it's gone. If you write 0s to the whole disk (using a "dd" command in linux, say) then there is no information left on it. There can still be a little left in caches (a few megs - not much), but you can overwrite and read a couple of times if you are really, really paranoid about that.

But you have to write to the whole disk, to make sure that sections which used to hold old files are now gone, which it sounds like you did.

Yeah, but that's for military-level security, due to espionage threats 'n' stuff. In my case, however, it's just a random hard drive that no one on Earth would have the slightest reason to suspect would ever have anything "interesting" on it, hidden somewhere amidst all those zeroes.

What I'm saying here: Sure, maybe high-end government-funded forensic spies might be able to squeeze a drop of data out of this drive (maybe), but the average schmuck -- the kind of person who would even want to own a heavy, slow 12-year-old drive with less capacity than a modern $10 camera memory card -- would not have the ability (nor the inclination to even attempt) to find any data surviving on the drive -- right?

You can only read what might be left in a cache (which didn't get overwritten). But, if a disk is 50 Gigs and you actually write 50 Gigs of 0s or random bits, then there is no information (outside of caches) left to read. There is just nothing left.

If there are bad sectors that don't get overwritten then that is one thing, but a straight-forward "dd" to write the whole disk (as a sequential file from the first boot bit to the last) will get rid of everything, so long as it has all been written to it.

Unless your disk has lots and lots of bad sectors there shouldn't really be any problem wiping it beyond any recovery.

But ... if someone is really bothered by it then your suggestion of trashing it (and physically beating it to death, I assume you mean) is the way to go. Memory is so cheap these days. 50 Gigs is nothing. Zombie's relative can buy a little 64 Gig SDHC for less than $30.

But ... I'd write 0s or random bits to it (three times, and read, to clear caches) and hand it over without worrying.

Excellent link -- I just carefully read the whole thing. Thanks.

The upshot, very robustly proven, is:

"What we see is that it quickly becomes practically impossible to recover anything *and this is not even taking the time to read data using a MFM into account). ...This study has demonstrated that correctly wiped data cannot reasonably be retrieved even if it is of a small size or found only over small parts of the hard drive. Not even with the use of a MFM or other known methods. The belief that a tool can be developed to retrieve gigabytes or terabytes of information from a wiped drive is in error.

Although there is a good chance of recovery for any individual bit from a drive, the chances of recovery of any amount of data from a drive using an electron microscope are negligible. Even speculating on the possible recovery of an old drive, there is no likelihood that any data would be recoverable from the drive. "

Whew!

I feel 100% reassured.

THat's basically what I did -- wiped it three times:

1. Secure Empty Trash overwrites every single file with random bits -- claimed to be a totally unrecoverable wipe.
2. THEN, in addition to that, I overwrote the entire drive with zeroes, using a utility program designed by Apple for that specific purpose.
3.THEN, I low-level-reformatted the entire drive. Maybe this doesn't overwrite anything, but I think it zeroes-out any and all caches.

I feel confident.

Glad to help and I'm glad that Tim provided a more authoritative link (I really hadn't taken the whole electron microscope angle into account ) to put your mind at rest.

If it were so easy to get old data back off a disk then you can bet your butt someone would be advertising a 50 Gig disk as a 50 Terabyte disk! Most data is recovered because people just delete (and erase) "files", which can leave fragments of old files untouched elsewhere on the disk - files that were big and became small and space was freed, but not used again, etc.. This is why your second action - writing to the disk, itself, with no regard for files or boot sectors or anything - is the important one.

559 The day that the government forces me to perform same sex marriages-or marriages for anyone for that matter- is the day I put my aged body in an orange jumpsuit to get ready to go to the pokey. If you ask most clergy people I would imagine that performing marriages is not their favorite thing. Why? Because many people don't have a clue about Christian marriage. They want to get married in a church because they like the stained glass windows or it's the pretty little church on the hill, not because they want to take vows in front of God. People are obsessed with how people look in their fancy outfits and where the reception will be be, whether there will be an open bar or not. and where the honeymoon will take place They want an excuse for a big party. And actually. if we're going to regard a marriage as simply a big party for people who love each other,. gay people are perfectly capable of loving someone, of having a lifelong commitment and they can enjoy a big party as much as straight people can. However, since i have spent much of life writing things, I care about words and what they mean and marriage has always meant-in this culture-a commitment between a man and woman intended to be lifelong. I would rather we kept that term for a monogamous relationship between a man and a woman and use the term civil union for gays and if people want to find churches that will perform gay unions they can certainly do so. Because if churches are forced to perform gay marriages then they will be forced to perform polygamous marriages and marriage will become whatever the government wants it to be. Marriage shouldn't even be done under the auspices of the state IMO Let very one have civil unions and let churches perform marriages Because when they church tells me why I should perform marriages for they will then tell me what I may preach and churches will become nothing more than propaganda arms of the state such as in Nazi Germany. I'm no Dietrich Bonhoeffer; I don't even know that I'm a particularly courageous person, but on this I will not move. so help me God and God will have to help me because i won't be able to refuse under my own strength.

And 7 has a nice biblical feel to it If it were France, they would make it 10 times just to make it "metric" and because they hate the number 7 with the heat of a thousand suns ... because of the Bible ...

569 You know, you have 10,000 people knowing where you noticed the piece about all 50 state's flags being bad, where 10,000 people (number pulled out of my butt) were expecting to go there directly, not clickity-click-click indirectly. Can't you just tell us where you noticed and spare 10,000 clicks?

573 Seems like it might be a good time to once again to put up the words of Fr. Walter Ciszek. the PA born American Priest who was first imprisoned and tiortured in Lubiankta prison and then sent to the Gulags in the Soviet Union.

The body can be confined, but nothing can destroy the deepest freedom in man, the freedom of the soul, and the freedom of mind and will. These are the highest and noblest faculties in man, they are what make him the sort of man he is, and they cannot be constrained. Even in prison a man retains his free will, his freedom of choice. Even in prison, a man can choose to do good or evil, to fight for survival or to despair..

His book, "He Leadeth Me" is one of the most inspiration I have read. You can find more information on Fr, Ciszek at ciskek.org

It was just another case of workplace violence, not terrorism.

575 "Marines May Deploy on Foreign Ships, Because U.S. Navy Doesn't Have Enough"

When you let women, homos and poltical correct regs into a military built by straight men, they will leave. The politics gets deeper and the work that needs doin falls on their shoulders to cover the f*ck ups (who get promoted).

No thanks. We have 11 carrier groups, but only 3 are deployable. Mystery that.
