One thing I don't get about AR-15s: Why is there such a demand for 16" barrels, and so little for 18 and 20" barrels? The length difference seems pretty minimal to me, and I kind of get the impression that the 20" barrels may be a bit more reliable than shorter ones, at least with less-than-stellar ammo.

I get the use of a shorter barrel for indoor defense work, but it seems like the longer barrel has the edge in every other way...

Heads exploded and liberal/progressive "friends" and their "friends" were extremely offended and and started trashing me personally (I made no comments about liberals in general, just a politician. Criticizing politicians is, or used to be anyway, our civic duty) . Bernie Sanders, whom none of them heard of 6 moths ago is the greatest statesman in the country! All right wing lies and hate!. And the hand wringing and whining about how could I post something so mean and unsubstantiated about somebody that cares so deeply for us. This from people who daily post multiple mean, snide malicious distortions and lies about Republicans, conservatives, Christians, evil corporations etc...

Like I said, this was the first time I ever posted anything like that. It was amazing watching the outrage and hate thrown my way so casually but not the least surprising. Today's liberals/progressives really are a sick

I have a question for you. My son's Latin teacher who seems like a very nice guy from the e-mails he's sent and what he writes about his his class, is Jewish. The only reason i know that is that son reported he was wearing a yarmulke. I would like to send him an e-card for yom Kippur ,but to me some of the cards seems a little odd. On the holiest and most solemn day in the Jewish Year is it appropriate to say "Happy Yom Kippur"? Some e-cards say that.. For Christians, out most holy day is "Good Friday" but even then we don't really say "Happy Good Friday". Would "May you have a blessed Yom Kippur be better. Your advice would be appreciated.

72 Today is the birthday (1885) of legendary director / actor Erich von Stroheim, who rose to fame in silent films playing variations of a cruel, callous Prussian aristocrat - "The Man You Love To Hate," as Hollywood publicists dubbed him.

He's famous today for three roles: as Field Marshal Rommel in Five Graves to Cairo,* prison commander Captain von Rauffenstein in La Grande Illusion and general factotum Max von Mayerling in Sunset Boulevard.**

As a director, von Stroheim was noted for his exactitude and for shooting immense amounts of footage in order to achieve the realism he struggled for; in 1925s The Merry Widow, he insisted that palace guards wear a precisely monogrammed set of underwear, despite the fact that the clothes would never be seen on screen.

Widow was also the film responsible for one of the few jokes known to have been uttered by Irving Thalberg, head of production at MGM. After viewing a rough cut of the film, Thalberg asked why the camera lingered so long on the character of Baron Sadoja, seeneying the vast shoe closet of star Mae Murray.

"Because he has a foot fetish," von Stroheim answered.

"And you have a footage fetish," Thalberg returned.

Here's Murray in Widow:

http://goo.gl/82UDaN

And here's von Stroheim in a publicity still for Sunset Boulevard:

I'd like to trade places with Stroheim snuggling up to Vera Zorina in this still from 1940s I Was An Adventuress:

http://goo.gl/ndBqLo

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

*in which he insisted that, despite the fact he wouldn't be shooting any pictures, his prop camera be fully loaded with film, just as Rommel's was.

**a role he angrily dismissed as "that goddamn butler part."

While at a "locally sourced" restaurant in Ann Arbor a few weeks ago, a nearby table of young hipsters wondered out loud about the strange new food on the menu - rutabaga.

Who can blame them for not knowing what it was? It was served ala carte as a shareable side mashed with butter and a little nutmeg.

Love quinoa, but I remember when it started to become really popular, there was concern that its popularity had driven the price up to the point where the poor people in the countries where it was grown could no longer afford it. This was problematic because it was a staple of the local diet.

I imagine the market has remedied this, but I still think about it.

People like the shorter barrel for ease of handling and packing and storage. The 18" and 20" barrel will give better accuracy over long distances but only for a skilled shooter at longer ranges. The 16"barrel is also cheaper to make so keeps costs slightly down. Solution is get one of each, shoot them and see which one you like best!

So leaning very close to it, he said in a low whisper which echoed around the church: "There is something wrong with this microphone."

The well trained and responsive congregation, very familiar with the latest in liturgical language replied "And also with you."

161 Love quinoa, but I remember when it started to
become really popular, there was concern that its popularity had driven
the price up to the point where the poor people in the countries where
it was grown could no longer afford it. This was problematic because it
was a staple of the local diet.



I imagine the market has remedied this, but I still think about it.

I figured the ability to replicate whatever you wanted also likely involved the technology to replicate robots to do whatever couldn't be replicated. So basically, people had nothing to do but work or take up hobbies to stave off boredom.
Economics is basically how people deal with scarcity. If technology obliterated scarcity that completely, society as we know it pretty much goes out the window.
It's also utopian nonsense. It'd be like Welfareland Everywhere if it happened in reality. Lots of drugs. Lots of illegal phaserings. Youth gangs. The works. Idle hands are the devil's playthings and people never change.

The tricky bit about Startrekonomics is even if there are Replicators, there are still things that are in limited supply: a corner apartment with a nice view; access to recreational facilities; and so forth.

No, what hurt TNG and killed Voyager was the absurd interpretation of the Prime Directive. In TOS, it was meant for pre-warp cultures. By the end of TNG, it was we don't meddle in anything.

205 Economics is basically how people deal with scarcity.
When I write scifi, I try very hard to get the economics right. In Book 10 of my series, I wrote about a culture that had, essentially, a replicator-based economy. It was technologically stagnant, since there was no need to innovate. The society was essential feudal, since the replicators were controlled by a handful of powerful families. But there was a lot of art and entertainment.

I'm just curious and it's none of my business, of course, but you mentioned it and I'm interested. If you felt drawn to the RCC, I guessing it might be in part because of their doctrine and appreciation of the real presence of m Jesus in the Eucharist? or other doctrinal stands. The theological basis of the church has been true since the founding of the church, and of course the doctrine on marriage stays the same as do things related to the sanctity of life. Why-with a Pope-who won't be Pope forever and is is not speaking ex cathedra on global warming or other political issues why wouldn't you join the church to be nourished by the the things that bring you closer to Jesus and let the other stuff go? I mean ,there have been some very bad Popes and the church has still stood. That's because they stand upon the rock of Jesus Christ, which all faithful Christians do, IMO.

Converted rice is a vile misnomer and an unspeakable lie. Far from being religious, rice is in fact the most atheistic and anti religious starch possible.

238 Just read an article on aol that says the Muslim clock boy's daddy has taken him -- and all his other kids --out of the Dallas school clock boy was attending. Says the controversy has "torn the family apart" and that clock boy "can't eat or sleep."

Anybody doubt this was all a set-up for a lawsuit? It's CAIR and the "flying imams" all over again.

Funny thing is, clock boy is smiling and looks very happy in all the recent photos I've seen of him. Looks to be enjoying his new celebrity very much. Those CAIR lawyers need to coach him better if they're going to get as big a settlement from the school district as they did from the airline in the flying imams scam.

259 Same w/Presidents and the Constitution.

I don't think it's analogous, although granted people feel strongly about Popes. The core of the RCC as I understand it is the faith passed down by the Apostles and the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist. If those change it will cease to be the RCC but he hasn't and he won't change those. Something that has changed in a number of Protestant churches is the view on homosexuality and gay marriage. Even if Pope Francis believed in that-and there's s no indication he does-he can't just change teaching willy nilly. He might have a pen and phone but he hasn't used them as Obama does.

Reminds me of that case a few years back, when there was a media frenzy over a little boy who was supposed to have been stuck in an out-of-control balloon. Later turned out it was a con job by the parents, who had hidden the kid and told him to lie. But the poor kid was not as naturally dishonest as his parents, and he couldn't keep up the deception.

The whole "we don't use money" thing got started in the ST movie "The Voyage Home" (the whale/time travel story).

Maybe if a person were a conservative and a non practicing Muslim-yes,. but as far I can tell Obama is a non practicing Muslim who only believes in himself as god and his Presidency has been a disaster. He loathes practicing Christians who are not progressives and has done nothing to help them. Mark Steyn nailed it.

I'm no expert, but it seems to me that JPII was involved in politics. His words helped bring down the Iron Wall. He was on the side of the Solidarity movement. The difference is he didn't have progressive leanings.

315 Friends, Milady's oldest brother, Vince, is ill and probably dying. He beat the throat cancer a long time ago, but a new cancer has cropped up, and it seems there's nothing to be done.

Lost my cousin Sherry some weeks back. Milady's cousin Pat suddenly died from leukemia more recently. Our generation is hitting the wall, although really none of them was that old. (Of course, I go by the standard of my 95yo mother.)

Vince was best known as a longtime bartender on Chicago's North Side. (Can be an honorable position.) He truly was a gentle giant, impressive in height and girth. I remember him walking a drunk out the door of the bar one day, firmly, but so nicely the drunk thanked him. Conversely, Vince talks of getting booted from a bar himself, and tipping the bouncer. Heh - bar culture was something I had to learn in our Chicago years.

I also will always remember one day when I sat down at his bar in a time of trouble. He said I was the saddest looking person he'd ever seen. (For a longtime big city bartender, that's saying something!) Then he helped me find the solution I needed. And he probably bought me a beer. He did so much for so many as is broadly loved.

Vince is also a painter, musician, and writer. I'll try to post about his book on the book thread some Sunday soon. Been meaning to for a long time. Vince was in the Navy during Nam, radio guy. Also an excellent chef. Husband and father, he's leaving his devoted wife and their one beautiful adult child, my daughter's age.

Milady's family is large and scattered. There was a plan for relatives to gather and visit Vince, but all my daughter's cousins were coming and it was becoming a circus in a sick room. They were discouraging the en masse party when he took a turn for the worse, which if he doesn't improve, means he may not last the week. So, instead of going up to visit, we may have to go up for a funeral.

So, one way or another, Milady and I will probably be driving up to Chicago this week. Prayers welcomed where applicable.

Sorry for the slow response, was going home from work. To answer your questions as best I can, a lot of the things that drew me to Catholicism were things like the open and unabashed belief in things like visions, miracles, and the belief that evil is a real and external force. The church traditions, and the formal, somewhat distant, almost anonymous nature of the services are also a big appeal.

The big threat I see from this Pope is the moral relativism that often comes along with such a staunch belief in other Leftist ideas. If he injects that into the Church, it will cease to be recognizable as a Christian institution.

If you read the article, it makes sense. Only a handful of states complied with the REAL ID requirements. So since a license is basically useless as far as security goes in most states, the TSA said fuck it, everyone will need a passport.

The REAL ID was a good solution. Secure licenses that could also be used to cross into Canada. But a lot of people bitched and moaned about it.

The things you believe in, brother are still the case. If you're heart was drawn there, follow your heart there. The bible says "Christ in us, our hope of glory" so I think Christ may be telling you to go there. And let the issue of what the Pope says about non political things bother you but let them go. That way, if you're in the church you can be nourished regularly by the Eucharist and express your displeasure with some of the elements that you find troublesome inside the church.

382 Shorter barrels tend to have less harmonics/vibration at the cost of a little less velocity.

With an AR, there is some math involved in the gas port distance from the end of the barrel smoothing out recoil, but you can get some scary soft shooters with a midlength gas system and a 14.7/16" barrel.

Short barrels are also lighter, and you don't really need to be front heavy with 5.56. Lighter barrels tend to cool down faster, too (this is more an argument for thin barrels vs. bull, but in the same vein).

So, longer barrels aren't just a lock, and a lot of times the shorter barrel is actually more accurate.

Yeah right? They can toss salads, that's it. (Which gets them tossed off buildings. Funny thing that.)

I know, right. Those freedom loving flyover assholes. Guns and religion. Bastards.

Would be a lot worse if we felt strongly enough to deal with what is necessitating the restrictions on liberty instead of imposing the restrictions in the first place.

391 For those ignorant people who have a newfound love of socialism as a result of Bernie Sanders and Pope Francis, please remind them that with socialism comes the need for an enslaved people and the construction of Iron Curtains.

They won't believe.

Even some of the SA were yelling "Heil Hitler!" as the SS gunned them down.

395 I guess I figure if my ID is good enough for my state, it ought to be good enough for the Federal Government.

The relationship between the States and the Federal Government has been really corrupted over the years.

I can appreciate that. That's why I think spiritual disciplines are even more important for RC's at this time as they are for any Christian and probably faithful Jews as well.

Is that pajama boy in those new GE ads? The wimpy looking guy looks just like him. There's one with him another beta male type and two very frumpy looking women. GE must trying to target the borderline gay and lesbian demographic

404 If you look at the Hillary pic on Drudge, check out the position of the bright spot of light reflecting from her cornea relative to the pupil of the eye. If one's eyes align properly that light reflex should be in the same location on the pupil.

To me it looks like the left eye deviates downward slightly. There are several causes for this, maybe something as simple as the light source is very close causing one eye to draw inward (watch your finger approach the tip of your nose as you go cross-eyed). Could be altered vision in that eye, could be eye muscle imbalance. I suppose a stroke could cause that also.

Any ophthalmologists on board this morning?

405 Exactly. If your state gets a secure license, you
won't need a passport. So instead of whining about "papers please"
bullshit, get your state to get create a secure license
