Overnight Open Thread (7-5-2015)

Quote of the Day I

John Kerry, his secretary of state, is one scary dude. A newspaper headline captured the problem perfectly when it said that Kerry was looking for a "legacy hit." "For Kerry, Iran deal would be a legacy hit after many misses."

He won his party's presidential nomination, but didn't win the presidency. He was in the Senate for a jillion years but did basically squat (except for voting the party line). A nuke deal with the mullahs would be his "legacy hit."

Beware the man who wants to be something. That man is often a very dangerous character. How about the epitaph "He did no harm"? Not sexy enough. But men who do no harm are better than most, probably.

-- Jay Nordlinger in Beware the Legacy-Seeker

Quote of the Day II

Greece before it joined the euro was pretty much what it had always been: a slightly ramshackle, inefficient Balkan economy, rife with cronyism and corruption. But it got by. It took the special magic of the euro to turn Greece into the epicentre of a major financial crisis. The single currency has a kind reverse alchemy: everything it touches quickly turns to rubbish. Greece ran up too much debt, and spent a bit too much. But in normal circumstances, it could have devalued its currency, and renegotiated what it owed, just as [Milton] Friedman argued.

-- Matthew Lynn in the Spectator

Well saying Greece spent a little too much is quite a bit of understatement. When Greece joined the EU, it basically got a credit card with the same limit and interest rate as Germany and then went crazy with it. But it turns out that if you want to live like Germans, you have to actually work like Germans.

Quote of the Day III

Something that can't go on forever, won't. Debts that can't be repaid, won't be. Promises that can't be kept, won't be. Plan accordingly.

-- Glenn Reynolds on the Greek No vote

Quote of the Day IV

Recently I've been hearing a lot of conservatives saying things like, "It's over. The left has won. This is no longer America. I'm not even going to celebrate the Fourth of July this year." I confess this disturbs me. I expect feminists to squeal like hysterical little girls. I expect Social Justice Warriors to act like small boys who pretend to be heroes against imaginary enemies then run away from actual danger.

I expect conservatives to act like men and women - men and women who understand they are part of a fight for liberty that began when Moses killed the Egyptian slavedriver and will not end until Jesus comes again.

Open your eyes. The hills are filled with chariots of fire. Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.

-- Andrew Klavan

Note that fighting may require you to get off your ass rather than just sit around bitching about the state of things in some blog forum.

Greece Decides to Do Grexit the Hard Way, Votes No on the Bailout Referendum

Banks are supposed to reopen on Tuesday but with cash reserves dangerously depleted it's not clear if this will actually happen. Meanwhile ATM withdrawals are now limited to only 50 euros a day.

So what's a desperate cash-strapped government to do?

Greece Plans Cyprus-Style Raid on Bank Deposits

That's right - they're going to steal depositors money from their bank accounts or as they call it a 'bail-in' of people's money:

Greek banks are preparing contingency plans for a possible "bail-in" of depositors amid fears the country is heading for financial collapse, bankers and businesspeople with knowledge of the measures said on Friday.

The plans, which call for a "haircut" of at least 30 per cent on deposits above ?8,000, sketch out an increasingly likely scenario for at least one bank, the sources said.

A Greek bail-in could resemble the rescue plan agreed by Cyprus in 2013, when customers' funds were seized to shore up the banks, with a haircut imposed on uninsured deposits over ?100,000.

Meanwhile the State of Texas is Repatriating Its Gold

Texas is the only state that owns an actual stockpile of gold, according to public sector and financial industry experts - not just gold futures or investment positions, but approximately 5,600 gold bars worth around $650 million. The holdings, stored at a New York bank, for some harken back to century-old fears about the security of currency not backed by shiny bullion.

George Takei Finally Apologizes for His Racist Rant

Ashe Schow: Has the Federal Government Ever Had Sex?

Thanks to proposed changes to the American Law Institute's Model Penal Code 'affirmative consent' may become the law of the land for everyone - not just students. Which means that every sexual act is considered sexual assault/rape unless you get explicit verbal consent from the other person. Yes this applies to married couples too. And yes this is insane. And unenforceable.

The law wouldn't apply only to first dates or similar new encounters, but would apply even in committed relationships. This means affirmative consent would be mandated for every sexual encounter, even to married couples. Given that divorce and custody cases frequently produce false accusations of child abuse, it's easy to imagine false accusations of sexual abuse proliferating if Schulhofer and Murphy's rules aren't followed every time a couple has sex.

We are all rapists now.

Hey Remember When the Left Was All About Keeping Government Out of the Bedroom?

And the crazy ideas that start on campus have a tendency to escape from the asylum. Thus, the Washington Examiner's Ashe Schow reports that the campus system of "yes means yes," in which lovers must receive express permission for every minor stage of a sexual act or risk being prosecuted by a regretful partner after the fact, is now being proposed as the legal model for criminal prosecution nationwide. As Schow puts it, this is a standard "so stringent that it would criminalize millions of Americans overnight," and is "part of a push to bring authoritarianism into the bedroom."

And it's not just what goes on behind closed doors. Every statement about sex, every public depiction of anything that remotely connotes sex-from movies to music to video games-has to be loaded up with social and political significance and policed for evidence of forbidden sexual attitudes.

These days, if you want to hear someone tell everyone to lighten up when it comes to sex and to stop making everything a crime, you're far more likely to hear that from the right. Frankly, there are a lot of us who are just wishing we could hear less about what is going on in everybody else's bedrooms.

Why the Left Had to Have Gay Marriage Through SCOTUS

It is no accident this was not done through the state courts or by referendum, state by state. The common wisdom is that supporters of same-sex marriage didn't want to wait for such a slow process, because although public opinion was changing in their favor it was not changing as universally or as quickly as they wanted. No doubt that was true.

But there were several other, more basic reasons to do it the SCOTUS way. The first is that if it had been done merely in those first two ways, law or referendum, state by state, it would continue to be subject to repeal in those states or to a new referendum outlawing it in those states. Too easy to accomplish a reversal, if people changed their minds after the law was passed and they decided they didn't like it for some reason.

The second is that people could opt out of servicing same-sex marriages (the florist/baker crowd), because the states usually were passing provisions to protect the rights of the religious to refuse to participate....I repeat, it is no accident whatsoever that same-sex marriage activists wanted this case before SCOTUS, and not just because they were impatient. They wanted to cement the institution of same-sex marriage in a way that would be nearly impossible to undo.

Why the Dukes of Hazzard Really Offends

But the story behind "The Dukes Of Hazzard" makes the show so dangerous that I am surprised that CBS ever aired it. It is a brother of "A Christmas Story," the "Porky's" trilogy, and every slasher film ever made. Beneath all the veneer of Good Old Boys running around is a protest of a corrupt government, and the dangerous advocacy of self-reliance. The government took their guns. The Dukes used compound bows, baby.

...Of course, the TV show was lighter and Clark had nothing to do with it (although he kept some rights to it). But them good old boys, never meaning no harm, were very dangerous rebels. Not the kind that kept slaves, but the kind who could take care of themselves. They fought an amoral corrupt political boss and a guilt-ridden corrupt sheriff.

In other words, typical Democrats.

And that was what the South was back in the day.

The audience for the Dukes is dying off, as unfortunately is the willingness to defy the government.

What Real Feminism/Idiocy Looks Like

Steven Haywood points admiringly to this story of a pregnant woman in California who give birth in a forest, fought off bees, and started a wildfire after getting lost. But WeaponsMan points out correctly that she did everything wrong and was on track for a Darwin Award except that she got lucky. Here are just the first four things she did wrong:

  • She was driving around (not sure why) when she knew she was nine-ninths pregnant. What she apparently didn't know was the fuel state of her vehicle. she was already at bingo fuel when this whole evolution began.
  • She started to go into labor, and decided the right thing to do was take a long drive to her parents' house. Look, we're all about taking personal responsibility here, but there's a time to call 911.
  • Since she was going to the folks' house, and time seemed to be of the essences, she decided that this was the optimum time to check out a short cut she'd heard about but didn't actually know. "I was told about this back road and people had shown it to me a few times but I'd never driven it myself." Oh, brother. The shortcut ran through the remote Plumas National Forest.
  • She told nobody what she was doing, or where she was going.

No Police Call is Ever Routine

In this incident, the officer was responding to a landlord's call to address a suspected case of trespassing at a trailer park. What the officer didn't know at the time was that the man hiding inside was an armed criminal with two active warrants who had escaped from a correctional facility, and that he had no intention of being taken alive.

The shooting captured on the body camera is chaotic, and the video afterward captures an incredible amount of detail of the officer's physiological response, from goose bumps, to shakiness, to labored breathing, to forgetting some basic rules of gun safety after the shooting (you'll know it when you see it).

Unfortunately I can't embed the video so you'll have to follow the link to see it. What's interesting is how the video keeps rolling and you get to see what the aftermath of a police shooting is like for the officer involved.

Ellen Pao Faces a Reddit Revolt

"Reddit is in meltdown. The hugely popular link-sharing site is in a state of virtual lockdown after the volunteers who run some of the site's biggest communities (known as "subreddits") went on the digital equivalent of a general strike. This followed the sacking of Victoria Taylor, a popular site admin, after a Reddit Q&A with the Rev. Jesse Jackson went badly for the activist preacher."

Thank Shale and Fire Up the Grill This Summer

Fracking has been bery, bery good to America.

Propane prices are at their lowest level since 2002 as shale has nearly doubled domestic propane production since 2009. These are, in other words, boom times. Cheap propane isn't just a boon to the country's grilling aficionados (though some might spurn the gas in favor of charcoal)-many homes are heated on propane. In that sense, cheaper prices can have a real impact on the heating bills of many American households. Remember, too, that cheap energy, and in this case cheap heating, is especially welcome in poorer households, whose power bills constitute a larger percentage of their budgets.

So fill up your propane tanks, America! Now we're cooking with gas.

7 Comedians Who Did Great Things for Humanity

1. DANNY THOMAS

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is a world-class pediatric research and treatment facility in Memphis, Tennessee that treats approximately 7,800 patients every year - none of whom are charged for their care. Instead, the nonprofit's $2 million daily operating costs are covered mainly by donations, and it's all thanks to sitcom star Danny Thomas. The St. Jude website explains how the TV funnyman came to found a world-renowned healthcare facility:

Unsure of his life's direction, a young Danny Thomas sought guidance from St. Jude Thaddeus, the patron saint of hopeless causes. If the saint would point to the path he should take, Danny vowed to build a shrine in his name. Success followed Danny's plea and soon after, the legendary entertainer set about fulfilling his vow to St. Jude. The result was St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

55 If what Ambrose Evans-Pritchard is saying is true (which ZeroHedge was quoting), the Greek commie govt is going to nationalize the banks, starting using digital "California style IOUs" as a sort of phantom, parallel currency, and start rogue printing of euros.

Per the rules, the ECB should immediately shut off the greek banks, the whole system, and "call in" the ELA loans (equivalent of the Fed's discount window). That would instantly detonate all the Greek banks.

But when the commies nationalize, start up the fake digi-drachma and the rogue physical euro, they'll hold that off they think.

The equivalent of a massive devaluation is going to happen, and the rest of the EZ banks, through the ECB are going to have to take a hit.

In the old days, this would be causus belli, and the German army should be marching in Athens. But that won't happen....at least for a while.

82 Andrew Klavan is right. People are whiningt, but they are feeling hopeless because they are not sure how they can make a difference or change things. What people need to do is get organized. They need to meet together with like-minded people and plan out how to most effectively pull of some major demonstrations. It's time for civil disobedience. I am not a networker, nor am I good at bringing people together, but those who are gregarious, outgoing, and know how to bring people together need to step up. Yes people will lose their jobs, and yes, people will probably lose everything. Well, so did many of those signers of the Declaration of Independence. MLK lost his life. Freedom requires constant diligence. But first people need to get organized and start working together to effect change. People must refuse to give up. People CAN change things for the better. Remember this: An individual CAN NOT fight an ORGANIZATION; it takes an ORGANIZATION to fight an ORGANIZATION.

Totally not relevant:

"At the upcoming DefCon hacker conference in Las Vegas next month, Caudill plans to unveil ProxyHam, a "hardware proxy' designed to use a radio connection to add a physical layer of obfuscation to an internet user's location. His open-source device, which he built for $200, connects to Wi-Fi and relays a user's Internet connection over a 900 megaherz radio connection to their faraway computer, with a range of between one and 2.5 miles depending on interference from the landscape and buildings. That means even if investigators fully trace the user's internet connection, they'll find only the ProxyHam box the person planted in a remote library, cafe, or other public place - and not their actual location."

104 Texas may want to repatriate its gold, but it would not be surprising if they a small down payment and a promise. The Germans tried to reclaim their gold and got that. It seems possible that in return for buying all that US Govt debt the Chinese get to keep our gold as collateral.
And,OT, is it not also possible that part of the fundamental transformation of our country is to make it less cracker. The Commie in Chief is allowing southern illegals by the millions, and bringing in ME Muslims by the thousands. When his financial house of cards finally collapses it may not just cause hardship, it could be expected to degenerate into full-fledged race war with everybody wanting to exact revenge against the White Privilege that oppressed them all.

Thinking history rhyming, this may be the Credit Anstalt event this time around. The Great Depression, which was a world event, didn't just happened at once. It was sort of a slow roll, kicked off in waves. The first wave, for us at least, was the Crash of '29.

If you read the commentary at the times, it was the same thing as now. Oh, nothing to worry about, prosperity is just around the corner. Then in May of '31, came the collapse of Credit Anstalt, which was the second wave event.

So, 2008 was the first wave event, and now Grexit may be the Credit Anstalt event (which also happened in Europe, of course).

SCOTUS merely changed the legal meaning of a word, "marriage".What can be done about it?In the interest of equality the only thing that can be done is reduce "marriage" to the lowest common denominator, two names on a piece of paper. Anything more would not be fair.A grandstanding politician could introduce the "Equality in Marriage" bill, which would do nothing but strike the words 'marriage', 'spouse' etc. from all federal law and regulation. There, all your marriages are equally meaningless.
It is the only way to be fair.

After years of controversy, the Washington Redskins have finally dropped part of their name. They're sick of the horribly negative connotations and ridicule.

From now on, they'll be known simply as the Redskins.

Exactly. But we also need to personalize the issue. Select someone to be the face of the victims of wetback crime, preferably a woman (to engage the soccer moms who have duck feathers for brains), and make that person the central figure of the campaign.

The candidate needs to respond to some slime bucket reporter, "But what about X? Have you no sympathy for X?"
When the reporter looks befuddled, the candidate tees off on him, and launches into his speech regarding victim X. Thereafter, he (and others) continually refer to X, and force reporters and communist candidates to state their position vis a vis X.

In short, do to the Reds exactly what they do to Americans.

306 Today, while checking my wallet for a winning lottery ticket (there wasn't one in there), I came across a quote from Theodore Dalrymple that I had tucked in there some while back. Giving recent events, i.e., Jenner, Dolezal, 'Marriage', and etc., it seems appropriate to post it:

“In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is...in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”

During WWII, Canada made some 5-cent pieces out of an alloy called tombac, in an effort to conserve nickel for the war effort. It has a pale bronze color.

Yep. That's also why in my incompetently formatted comment I suggested choosing a female victim as the face of the campaign. Women tend to have sympathy in the abstract for offenders ("oh, but he didn't mean it, and he's so young"), but not for specific offenders, and still less for those to victimized women, and much much less for those to victimized pregnant women or children. Splitting women off from the liberal base is crucial to success, and that necessitates bringing to their attention the outrages the MSM bury from their view.

352 There was just a case here in Aurora, a suburb of Denver, where an illegal was sentenced to forty years for a drunk driving homicide. He had been arrested multiple times for DUI before, he had never had a driver's license or insurance, and always wound up being fined, and maybe a short jail sentence. Denver and the surrounding environs are pretty much de facto sanctuary cities.
That is the major factor in the SF case. Sanchez was arrested by ICE and turned over to the SF law enforcement with a request that if he was going to be released, that he be detained so that ICE could arrest him. SF declined to cooperate with the Federal authorities because sanctuary city policies.
So now you have a person, convicted of multiple felonies, deported five times, in possession of an illegal firearm who randomly shoots an innocent bystander. The idiots in SF are tripping all over themselves to blame ICE, and ICE is blaming SF for their policies.
My bet is that because he's an illegal, and it is SF, he's going to get off with time served in the county jail.

Not really. The simple way to do it is to use a zinc penny as a counterbalance. Bias it slightly away from the center so that a zinc penny in the opposite end will always be "up", and a copper will always be "down". The only important bit is knife-edging the 'bearing' so that the balance is sensitive.

Lee H. @ 174, I believe the number is far, far, far below 30 million (number "helped" by O-care in a way that has/will discomfit/devastate 300 million, directly or indirectly). But I don't blame you for using that number - even though I think the affirmative action mediocrity himself, on his hilariously pathetic "sales" tour for the bill, had to keep backing down on the number of "uninsured" because there were still, believe it or not, people actually calling b.s. on a gigantically important public issue, based on fact. Yeah, hard to believe, in what was known as the US.

Best number I've seen - of *financially involuntarialy uninsured* - the only category that's relevant, but which every-f**king-body assumes is the "problem" to be solved, is below 15 million - probably below 10, if you do some reasonable engineering to factor out illegals.

So fewer than 10 million people - of whom only a small portion has reacted in any way to the new law - is "benefitted" by a comprehensive, unconstitutional, functionally and economically idiotic "reform". Nice!

Only to the extent that if your counterweight is ridiculously un-dense, it would be hard to properly fix it to the balance beam. It's easy to slide a cast-iron weight along the beam; a bag of feathers, not so much, even if it weighed the same.

Then, he says that the USA makes shitty deals. About this, he knows what is happening. He is the Deal Meister. Don't believe me? OK, how about the USA traded a bunch of terrorists from Gtmo. plus $5Billion for a deserter.
And now, we, by all indications, are representing Iran in nuclear talks, and NOT the USA.

Oh, yes he does. Seriously, have you watched how Trump has made his money? He's a carnival barker. A great one but none the less, a carny.

He's given 6 figures to the Clinton Foundation. He was a registered Democrat for a long time. He's made most of his money with government cheese and hid the very same with bankruptcy laws.

He is spot on with his critique of the southern border and who is coming over and I give him full marks for moving the ball. But he is the furthest thing from a small government candidate. Government has made him very, very wealthy.

Posted by: Robinson at July 06, 2015 12:52 AM (1SHv1)


Depends on the type of balance. If you have a fixed balance like the "scales of justice" its a basic mass vs. mass. The heavier mass will be lower. If you are dealing with a balance like what you have at a doctors office where you move a counter weight and try and get it to balance at the line then you are dealing with a type of fulcrum where you are moving the counter weight changing the length of the lever from the fulcrum allowing a smaller mass to lift a larger mass.

394 352 There was just a case here in Aurora, a suburb of Denver, where an illegal was sentenced to forty years for a drunk driving homicide. He had been arrested multiple times for DUI before, he had never had a driver's license or insurance, and always wound up being fined, and maybe a short jail sentence. Denver and the surrounding environs are pretty much de facto sanctuary cities.
That is the major factor in the SF case. Sanchez was arrested by ICE and turned over to the SF law enforcement with a request that if he was going to be released, that he be detained so that ICE could arrest him. SF declined to cooperate with the Federal authorities because sanctuary city policies.
So now you have a person, convicted of multiple felonies, deported five times, in possession of an illegal firearm who randomly shoots an innocent bystander. The idiots in SF are tripping all over themselves to blame ICE, and ICE is blaming SF for their policies.
My bet is that because he's an illegal, and it is SF, he's going to get off with time served in the county jail.

397 Mike, maybe you could build a magnetic separator for copper vs zinc pennies. Make an angled channel for them to roll down, possibly a kerf cut in a thin board on the table saw? Set the channel on an angle, and near the bottom, have a pair of rare-earth magnets, with a soft-iron "horseshoe" linking the outside poles, straddling the channel.


Now, neither copper nor zinc are ferromagnetic, how does this work? Well, as the coins roll through the (strong) magnetic field, eddy currents are generated in the metal, and the magnetic field of the eddy currents interacts with the imposed field of the magnets to slow the motion of the coin. Since copper is a far better conductor of electricity than zinc, it follows that there would be stronger eddy currents, and the copper coin would be retarded more in its travel than the zinc one. So you could roll the coins down the chute, and the copper coins would land in the near cup, and the zinc ones in the far cup. Ideally, anyway. But it would be almost trivial for a handy kind of guy to build. I'm pretty sure this principle is used commercially in coin acceptors for vending machines.

So to indulge a rube who only has decades of direct experience at the highest levels,and a lifetime of study and interest to bring to bear, how exactly are we to "act"?

Just spitballing, how about we take control of both houses of Congress, then use that control to confront the minority and their ridiculous, lawless president with issue after issue, bill after bill, that they will have to filibuster and/or veto - in the teeth of comfortable majority public opinion? You know, put the other side on the spot, "differentiate" as has always been done, to weaken the opponent and rally our own supporters?

I guess there's always the state level. Pass constitutional amendments, etc.

Oh.The SCOTUS can simply make s**t up, arrogate vast powers entirely outside the constitution and our history, and negate anything we do?

Hehehe. The current US debt is 18+ trillion dollars. The US has taken in just over a trillion dollars in tax collections the last couple of years. The interest on the debt is just north of 400 billion dollars a year. That leaves 600 billion to run the government. Even if we were to pay 500 billion a year on the principle, taking up 900 billion a year and leaving the government only 100 billion a year to operate, it would still take us over 40 years to pay off the debt, assuming that we didn't borrow any more money. This does not take into account the unfunded liabilities of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.

Posted by: Cruzinator at July 06, 2015 01:12 AM (4SgJh)


Let's parse this all out.


"Trump has also said he is pro-life but would not prevent a woman from getting an abortion." Well, would you throw a woman into jail for getting an abortion? Or would you try to change the culture in such a way that it became socially unacceptable to have abortions for essentially selfish reasons? Which approach is more likely, over the long term, to reduce the death toll caused by abortion?


"He is for the second amendment and everyone should have a gun except assault weapons." Is that not essentially the law now? An assault weapon is capable of full-auto fire, and you need an FFL to own one, right? A modern sporting rifle like an AR-15 clone, is not capable of full-auto fire, and is not an "assault weapon".


"He is for reduced taxes but also wants to levy a one time tax of 15% on the wealthy to pay off the debt." That sort of depends upon where you draw the line between "wealthy" and "not wealthy", doesn't it? But when you consider that all too many of the "wealthy", the Elon Musks, the Warren Buffetts, the Sergei Brins, and Trump himself, either became wealthy, or saw their wealth increase largely due to crony capitalism and rent-seeking, why should they not take a disproportionately larger haircut?

But, there's no question that Trump's participation for that short time in 2012 was a big net plus for the GOP field. It let a lot of them understand where the base was.... though that only led to Vichy GOP douchebags making promises that they would break the minute they got elected.

Great Dalrymple quote.

I mentioned that it was ironic that the REAL crime got almost no media/political attention while the Ferguson incident became a cause celebre.

She said it didn't surprise her at all. The less true the narrative, the more hysterically it will be foisted upon us, that the N Charleston case was of little interest precisely because it was a REAL crime.

Yes, she would like that Dalrymple piece.
And yes, she definitely sees the shadow of Stalin in the American Left.

No, I don't thing you do. He's actually running and doing pretty well and has some support here even if you aren't supporting him.

Trump is a one trick pony who beats on every country because it helps his business interests. He got boned on his pageant business by Mexico, got crushed by China on his gambling, and you can draw a straight line to every other one of his business flops.

As I said, I welcome his statements on Mexico even if they were self-serving but he's still a douchebag.

Jim! Well, a bit of a false tease there. It's my brother's gun, of which I had temporary custody while his house was rebuilt.

A Colt Diamonback, .38 Special, 4-inch. The very revolver you named in your sign-off, I think.

Based on the ammo he gave me to keep with it (all 80s stuff), looks like it had been fired about 24 times (4 cylinders' worth). !!!!! Beautiful condition. He lives near the beach, so I returned it in a nice expensive dry-case, with a dessicant unit (aluminum container with silica). Told him it's worth north of $1.5K now in CA, to his amazement. Of course, purely for safety reasons, I HAD to shoot if a few times. Nice.

My amazement - that he had ANY firearms at all. Another stunner was that he had the 10/22 that's the first rifle I ever fired, when I was 10 or so. Beautiful - I get the impression they "don't make them that way any more", at least for the quality of the walnut stock and the bluing on the barrel/receiver. Got a new mag for that, cleaned it up real good.

When his son/my nephew finally commits to a day at the range (he was very interested, he's heading off to college in the fall), we'll definitely shoot both of his father's guns, as well as a carefully selected sample of single-action, semi-auto, and milsurps, to "round out" his firearms introduction.

Someone earlier (sorry, forget who) and Margarita de Ville, yes - to the points about the distortion/propaganda being *intended* to humiliate as much as misinform, and the more outrageous the distortion the better. Of course Goebbels was also quite explicit about the latter tactic - "Big Lie".

Yet I don't think, for example in Roberts' ridiculous "rulings" at SCOTUS, that there is a conscious effort to subdue and conquer with humiliation. Roberts, and people like him, *actually believe this nonsense*.

And he and his ilk have an electorate, a culture, a country that has not, is not, and most likely will not do a thing to resist or reverse the usurpations. Notwithstanding chariots of fire in the hills, whatever the f**k those are supposed to be.

Cruz achieved ultra-douchebag status with his insane backing and forcing of BarkyTrade.

Gotta agree, Burn. Not all of those despairing of the situation do so primarily, or even materially, from emotion. Some actually understand this stuff, don't think in tribal us/them terms, and have some historical context.

Alternatively, I heard several "conservative" pundits - I'm not making this up - rather giddily talking about "silver linings" in the two worst SCOTUS ukazes last week. And, allegedly, Ryan greeting Hoyer with a broad grin on the floor after Roberts' reworking of English, the constitution, and the rule of law was issued.

Mayhaps Klavan ought to turn his guns on such incredible phenomena, and not on the more sober and thoughtful people who have somehow noticed trouble brewing.

Remember when there was going to be a windfall due to the Cold War ending?

Yeah. Whatever happened to that?

And where did all the Savings and Loan money come from and where did it go?

Why was the crisis in 2008 not anticipated before hand?

Where did all the money for the Iraq war come from and where did it go?

Honestly, it's getting old. People get to vote for whom they choose. Arguing over who is the purer candidate or who is business as usual and how dare you support one over another and call yourself a thoughtful person and nobody is a REAL conservative anymore and history says....

Posted by: Infidel


Well, this one's a bit involved.

Once upon a time, there was a fellow who was down on his luck, and as he was looking through the classifieds, he saw an intriguing ad offering a ten million dollar reward to the person who could find and retrieve, intact, something called a 'tis bottle.

Having nothing to lose, he calls the man who placed the ad. "I absolutely must have this bottle, and there are only three surviving in the world, the wealthy Martels he, one is in the heart of the deepest jungle, one is at the bottom of the coldest, darkest sea, and one is at the top of the highest mountain. I will pay your expenses for however long it takes to bring me one of these bottles, as well as giving you the ten million."

540 "Being an adventurous fellow, he decides to accept the offer.

First, he gathers a retinue of guides and hunters to go with him into the jungle. He studies for months to prepare, and when he is ready to survive, he sets out to get the bottle. Into the jungle he goes, and after many close calls, and much loss of life, he finds the bottle.
As he is on his way out of the jungle with the bottle well packed and padded, he is attacked by wild animals, and not only is he badly mauled, but the box with the tis bottle goes flying, and box and bottle shatter.
It takes some time for him to recover from his injuries, but when he's well enough, he begins preparations to retrieve the bottle at the bottom of the sea. He takes diving lessons, hires the newest and best deep-sea diving equipment and crew, and takes to the sea. With little trouble, they managed to get the bottle, but on the way up, they are attacked by sharks, and have to rush to the surface. In the hurry, the fellow not only gets the bends, but the bottle falls and breaks on the deck. More time in the hospital later, recovering slowly, he's more determined than ever to get the third and final bottle. "

I'm an expert at blowing shit up...part of the reason I joined the Army.

That said, there's stupid shit, and then there's unassing the area because some serious stupid shit is about to go down.

In the case of possibly blowing your own head clean off your shoulders...that's a tackling and get a mud hole stomped in your ass (though getting clowned about it forever is a plus for those that have to rescue your stupid head).

The Air Force was actually dropping leaflets of future bombing targets ahead of time. These were the normal bombings but those were bad enough. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were on a leaflet dropped a few days before the actual bombings.

The thing to remember is we nuked them twice and there was still an attempted coup to continue the war.

A sense of relief came over her, but she was so confused and didn't know why she needed relief or even where she was; it looked like an alley, like something out of a Starsky And Hutch episode, which almost made her laugh except nothing about this was funny.

680 I saw Terminator Genesys yesterday. It was pedestrian. A couple of the chase scenes went heavy into the CGI and looked really, really cheap. The upping the ante by having the next better terminator really didn't work this time. The actor playing Reese didn't cut it. Too pretty. Biehn had a rugged look about him that made you believe he was a soldier. This guy looked like he just walked out of the gym and salon. Chick playing Sarah looked uncannily like Linda Hamilton at times. The problem was she looked like the pixie Hamilton and not the buff Hamilton (I preferred the pixie Hamilton and never understood why guys liked the buff look) which didn't fit her role.

The plot though was fairly straightforward except for the time travel logic. Of course that is never straightforward. They play off the original two films pretty well. If I wasn't so jaded, I probably would have liked the humor more.

No bad, just nothing special.

"There's no appetite for that on our part." Iranian and Western officials confirmed this view. Separately, a senior Iranian official told reporters on condition of anonymity in the Austrian capital on Monday that Tehran wanted a United Nations arms embargo terminated as well.

When the people of a very liberal state, California, pass a constitutional amendment to define marriage as being between a man and woman and then have elected officials declare they will not obey this amendment and then have the SCOTUS say no Californian has standing to defend the amendment, what the hell can the people do to remedy that Mr. Klaven??

What can they do???

Have you seen Seattle students? They're no San Antonio, but doughy and 15 lbs overweight is about average.

727 Before leaving interviews or hang up up on the telephone, ask the interviewer two very important inquiries. Initially, when will they feel you'll hear back again? Secondly, what will the newest work with should do first at work? Take that respond to and then use it with your thank-you be aware to share with them how you'd complete the job correct.
