The birth and evolution of "political correctness" via "critical theory" through dominating over social studies... and beyond.

6 Here's my take on those damn emails,
Josh Ernest is saying the injustice department isn't going to indict Hildabeast based on their knowledge. Andrew C McCarthy has told us that the injustice department hasn't investigated her for more than 2 seconds and it's only the FBI who has. So Josh isn't joshing us, just stretching the truth to its limit.

12 Good morning Morons. No news today 'cause slept too late. But on the Scankles e-mail story I posted a link a few days ago where the investigators reviewing those E-mails were astounded by the stuff that was in them,


The security investigation is now part and parcel with the criminal
[public corruption] investigation, the source tells Catherine Herridge,
adding that within the FBI there is, incredulity as to what is being
discovered.

So judging by Mr. Trump's words and actions these past few weeks, is it fair to assume he'll use the FCC to pull the licenses of networks he feels are treating him unfairly? I'm sure he'd couch it as breaching the terms of their broadcast charter, but still.

And if he does nominate someone who goes against his will, will he have them arrested?

I'll leave it to you all to decide if these are bugs or features of a Trump administration.

Yeah, RickL said I should be on the food thread, too. He wants me to post my fried rice recipe. My shrimp-asparagus-mango-ginger stir fry with homemade plum sauce isn't too bad, either. I make a lot of stir-frys, usually with pork, along with my version of chicken with peanuts. I also love my eggplant parm, though I did make chicken parm recently, which wasn't bad, either.

I also make many varieties of soup, Navy bean, pureed carrot-ginger and curried baby lentil with kielbasa soups being favorites. I like cooking big batches of soup in the winter as they freeze so well. Then, months later when I pull a container out, I always shock myself at how good they are. I spoiled myself -- I simply cannot eat canned soup anymore.

As for bacon, one of the neighborhood stores usually has some brand (usually the house brand) of bacon on sale at around $4.99 a pound, so I stock up, freezing the raw bacon in individual servings of three or four slices. I'm a self-respecting Southerner: Running out of bacon is a sin. On top of that, I save the bacon fat in a jar in the fridge for things like string beans almondine and the like. Pork fat does rule!

Read it somewhere but the raping, groping, rioting, stealing, defecating are acts of conquerors. Europe is quite literally being invaded by a Muslim horde.

And the tone-deaf multicultural fools are printing pamphlets reminding them that it's not nice to rape.

Europe is gone. Even if so-called "far right" parties sweep into office, the cancer is so deeply embedded that it would be impossible to cure the problem without massive bloodshed.

73 So, read the sidebar about the USAF's B-2 situation. I'll wait here...

20 flying airframes. Do you believe this?

So we have a handful of B-2's and a handful of F-22's, and that's the whole of our "best" capability. We have the F-35, which nobody wants, and since it is the "inexpensive alternative" to the F-22, it is bleeding us white.

If it wasn't for the F15's, 16's, and A-10's (which they want to kill), the USAF would be a few dozen planes.

This is what happens when you have a moron for president. This is what happens when your president doesn't give a shit about defense. The generals and "leaders" begin treating the whole thing like a game, where they get to constantly try out new toys, and buffalo their "POTUS" with absurd cost over-runs that yield no actually flying aircraft.

The Navy has the LCS and DDG 1000 - two more enormous wastes of money. The Army has fewer opportunities to waste, but they are trying hard by buying handguns that appear to be made of platinum, based on the cost.

We are pouring treasure into our defense, but getting very little to show for it.

I don't like Trump, but if there is ONE thing that he will fix, it's this. He's nothing if not capable in this one area - nobody is going to bullshit him about buying planes that don't work, ships with no mission, etc.

We seem to have an officer corps, especially the flag ranks, who take an oath to this president, not the Constitution. I'm surprised they haven't taken the Oath while holding one of Barry's Dope and Che'nge LGBTQWERTY flags, like Hitler did with his army and the swastika flag.

What really pisses me off is the retired officers who do not speak up. They seem more concerned with their pensions than their oaths.

I'm not convinced the DDG-1000 is a waste, but they certainly wasted a lot of money by continuing to cut back on the amount they've bought, so that the enormous RD costs are shared over a small number of ships.


The railgun they've developed for the thing is a beast, and if it actually works (unlike everything else we've paid for lately) it will make shore bombardment a reality again, with ranges up to a hundred miles. Railgun ammunition is a whole heck of a lot cheaper than cruise missiles.


I'm more of a wait-and-see on that one. If it works as advertised after the railgun installation, we're probably going to want to order a lot more of them.

Remember the old saying, "the two tragedies in life are not getting what you want and getting what you want."

The big alarm bells for me with Trump are his past positions and statements (some very recent) and his temperament.

But more to your point, I predict him either being thwarted or "making great deals" with the Establishment. OR - if the egomania kicks in then becoming dictatorial.

I know I'm going to get blasted for this by the true believers but my feelings are based in real observations of the man and his record.

The big unknown will be the reaction of his diehards. With the SCOAMF drones, blame Bush and capitalism. QED. But, if Trump fails or really stabs people in the back, then that will be the bitter end of American politics.

I'm either not a true believer or not in a blasting mood today. I'd just say to temper those expectations. Consider that he might be smart enough to realize he's painting himself into a corner, and/or might treat his campaign promises as a deal he has to honor. It's a maybe, but those are speculations based on what we know about the guy. He may act like a buffoon, but you don't run a business empire worth billions for decades if you actually are one. He's been selling what people want to buy, which indicates a level of savvy that DC completely lacks. He has to know that if he does the political equivalent of a "brick in a box" scam with us there'll be hell to pay.

The chance we we'll be betrayed is still unacceptably high, but having weighed the options, I still think he's the best odds of success. Cruz has great ideas and policies on most things, but he doesn't have Trump's crossover appeal, which will make beating the Establishment when they inevitably side with Hillary that much harder. And you can bet that those assholes are absolutely going to stab us in the back for rejecting their golden boy Jeb! or their second choice Rubio.

116 re the military, trumps attitude seems to be to eliminate or reduce significantly our involvement with paramilitary orgs like Halliburton and increase military spending. he's not an ideologue interested in spreading democracy, so he won't fall for Arab Spring BS and the like. so all told, it looks like a far less intervention heavy approach. but, since he focuses so much on winning, if the military is called up I'd bet he'd give them greater latitude than they've had in decades.

134 Good morning all!

From this date in 1944- the Italian campaign as seen through the diary of a young artillery officer.

Jan 30, 1944- The EZ Dog Journal
Cool and cloudy. Heavy ground fog limited observation. Little change on our front. 34 Div took a series of hills north of Cassino. Over 200 PW's taken. VI Corps cut Hwy 7 at Cisterna.



PW = Prisoner of war


There were two main north-south ground routes through central Italy to Rome that were critical in the Anzio invasion. These routes paralleled the existing terrain through the various mountain ranges. Controlling these two highways north of the German forces along the Gustav Line would threaten entrapment of multiple German divisions and potentially take them out of the remainder of the war. Route 7 was closer to the coast and was reached at this stage of the invasion (prior to the big German pushback). Route 6 was further inland, (passing through the Liri Valley near Cassino), and was the purported goal of the Anzio invasion, more important militarily than Rome itself.

That gets one's attention. Like the chocolate ration. Shot: all maternity and paternity leave will now be standardized at 12 weeks. That's it, no other topic. Well, OK.
Downshot (or upshot, if the Fleet is In): Marines and USN are currently 18 weeks. But those currently on leave are, to use the legal term, "grandfathered." And, this applies to anyone who gets pregnant in the next 30 days.

I'll say that again for any of you still in the room: Marines and sailors who "get pregnant" in the next 30 days will receive an extra 6 weeks leave. That takes us to, well what do you know, Pearl Harbor Day.

155 "A wolverine, that's a type of weasel, right? "

***

Apex predator.

Biologists in the field came across the carcass of a grizzly bear with a huge hole in its chest. Best explanation they could come up with for it is that the bear got into a fight with a wolverine and picked up the much smaller wolverine to crush it in a bear hug. The wolverine escaped by chewing/clawing its way through the grizzly. Wolverine started in the front, came out the back and went on about its business.

Wolverines are what honey badgers aspire to be.

156 Aren't rail guns 'line of sight'?I'd think any
kinetic energy weapon which relies on extremely high velocity (vs. mass)
to not work well as indirect fire.

Depends on a lot of factors, such as how much speed the projectile loses, or whether it's a solid slug or warhead (which would basically make it the world's most badass artillery piece.)

Trump is the only candidate that has the capacity to surprise.

I mean that and it is both a good and a bad thing.


With everyone else we pretty much know exactly what we'll be getting.

Cruz is the closet thing we have to a Reaganite conservative.

With everyone else, it's simply whether you want your GOPe stab in the back with chocolate sprinkles or gummy bears.

And if one of the Dims win....Goodbye America.


With Trump...I don't know. His support comes from his immigration stance, so I believe he's smart enough to do that.

After that..????

I was pretty happy when he and Cruz were running the Shake and Bake-

because I thought that gave a strong indication of Trump's governing views.

Now, I'm not sure.

We'll see.

Trump's almost complete lack of a ground game is the primaries is either a complete game changer or the biggest flopperoo evah.

164 "Aren't rail guns 'line of sight'?"

Not so much. Modern telemetry and guidance can put the projectile on target. Iron bombs dropped from altitude with a guidance kit can be steered into a cone for accuracy.

166 Twenty column inches in WSJ on DefSec "Burn It To Ash" Carter, modernizing military benefits to match the private sector...

That gets one's attention. Like the chocolate ration. Shot: all maternity and paternity leave will now be standardized at 12 weeks. That's it, no other topic. Well, OK.
Downshot (or upshot, if the Fleet is In): Marines and USN are currently 18 weeks. But those currently on leave are, to use the legal term, "grandfathered." And, this applies to anyone who gets pregnant in the next 30 days.

I'll say that again for any of you still in the room: Marines and sailors who "get pregnant" in the next 30 days will receive an extra 6 weeks leave. That takes us to, well what do you know, Pearl Harbor Day.

Going to be quite a weekend all the way around Roosevelt Roads. Gives a whole new meaning to "swabbie." And, congratulations, in advance.

Fox has on a bim from some Green And Healthy Homes Initiative, who tells you that a lead test for your home water is 7 to 10 dollars, and faucet filters don't work on lead. Then, get this, you can avoid lead hazards by letting your water run from 5 to 30 seconds before drinking it, because, you know, lead solder in your pipes.

Answer me this, Ms Green: if the MF'in lead is coming from major chemical erosion of the city's water mains and joints, how exactly long does one run the home water to make that go away? J. Effing C. Almighty.

Extremely luckily for us, the current lead level in damaged systems like Flint is still less than most of us had ("if you were drinking before 1986," etc etc.) But that right there is the worst piece of medical advice I'll hear until Doctor Manny comes on.

238 Her's my question for anyone who ran.

FenelonSprout ran Cross Country this Fall and now is on the Track and Field team more for training purposes than because he's competitive for short distances. He needs new shoes and the and coach is saying he needs shoes with spikes on them to run outside (Right now they're not running outside for actual meets. There aren't too many meets and the ones they have are indoors ) Coach also says he needs shoes to change into. I know nothing about shoes for Track and Fielders. His regular running shoes seemed fine for Cross Country. What is a type of show with Spikes?

242 A wolverine is a special type of fursona.

Sometimes called 'skunk bear'.

Often found in neglected urban areas where trash is allowed to accumulate. The best strategy for dealing with this particular fursona is to avoid eye contact, don't make any sudden moves, and retreat to a safe place. No touch, no talk, no eye contact no matter how insistent the crazy person is as they demand your pocket change. Do not turn your back on one should you happen to encounter such a creature.

The coach used to be his history teacher so he may be encouraging him, and I have to say he's very good about showing up for all practices and working hard, He does better at CC but he has competing in one Track and Field event-the 400. The Cross country runners also are on the Track Team more for year round training purposes than because that shorter distances are their preference.

Unless you're in the boonies, there will be a runners store in your city.
Yes, really.
Running, Etc. used to be a chain that was popular and almost everywhere.

A real runner at a good shop will watch Sprout run (hopefully, on a treadmill) and watch his gait, then recommend shoes based on whether there is pronation, supination, whatevs... you will pay a bit more for the shoes, but my experience says those guys actually care. They're not selling you a pair of pretty shoes because they get an extra $5.
Yes. Real running shoes are designed to accommodate this.

Really - go to the Runners World website & search those two words if nothing else. (Pronation, supination)

I ran a long, long time ago, so technology and practice may have changed, but this doesn't make sense. Like your son, I ran Cross Country, Winter-, and Spring track.

When you say his "regular" shoes, you're probably talking about what I'd call "trainers". You wear these in practice, they have the good support so you don't blow your knees and ankles out running long distances every day.

We would also have "flats", which were shoes with precious little support, but if you've been training with a pound on each foot and you race with a few ounces on your feet instead, it feels like you fly.

We wore spike spikes on cinder tracks, which I'm not sure if they exist anymore. These were completely minimal flats, sort of ballet slippers with spikes under the balls of your feet. You could swap out the long metal spikes for shorter nubs to run on artificial surfaces.

I never saw anyone run in spikes in Cross Country. Different schools have different courses, but they almost always cover multiple terrains. Ours ran through the woods, but then you came out onto the road for a wicked downhill before turning into the farm. Even if spikes were legal (I don't think they were) if you found the kind that works in the woods it would kill you on the pavement.

Having taken up enough wordcount for now, I shall save my story about discovering Nikes from a guy selling them out of his car and how they changed everything.

287 re the military, trumps attitude seems to be to eliminate or reduce significantly our involvement with paramilitary orgs like Halliburton...

Bigby, let me put you some knowledge here, that you are clearly lacking. Halliburton a "paramilitary org"? Utter nonsense. You have been paying too much attention to the LSM, sonny.

Halliburton Energy Services, Inc., is just what the name implies. They are an oil field service company. That is, anything having to do with drilling oil and gas wells, Halliburton can do it for you. The only company in the world that does this sort of thing that is bigger than Halliburton is a French outfit called Schlumberger.

Many years ago Halliburton did buy a well known Houston area company called Brown and Root, which was and is an engineering and construction company. Now, going back to at least the 1960s and perhaps earlier, Brown and Root had been doing engineering and construction work, along with logistical support, for the US military. And they did a good job of it, too, as even Bill Clinton, just before leaving office, signed a new contract with what was then known as KBR, because they had done such a good job. (By that time Halliburton had bought another Houston area E&C firm called M.W. Kellogg Co., and merged it into Brown and Root, hence the new name, KBR).

Then 9/11 happens, and subsequent to that the Afghan and Iraq wars. And as usual, KBR was providing E&C services and logistical support for the military in these theaters.

But you never heard the name Kellogg/Brown and Root, KBR, or the like. All you ever heard was HALLIBURTON. Why? Because up until 2000, when George W. Bush picked him as his running mate, the CEO of Halliburton was none other than the Mighty Warcock himself, Dick Cheney. And the fucking lamestream media had a field day of lies and misinformation about this ever since.

And something else I'll bet you don't know is that back in 2005, Halliburton spun off KBR. It is now a separate and independent company, having nothing to do with Halliburton at all, and it has been so for over ten years now. Why? The public reason was that KBR was not making enough money to suit the powers that be at Halliburton. The private reason was that they were tired of all the bad press Halliburton was getting from owning KBR, to the point of telling their employees not to tell anyone publicly who they worked for, not to wear their Halliburton caps, badges, uniforms and such in public, and the like, lest they be literally attacked by the local Commies, who did come around the various Halliburton facilities from time to time. I know because I worked for them for seven fucking years.

Oh, and Halliburton, the oil field services company was never in Iraq, until years after the war was over, along with Schlumberger, Weatherford and God knows who else (we won that war, by the way). And to this day none of the Halliburton employees in Iraq are American. They are all either Iraqi or some other flavor of Arab...or Russian. And oh yes, there is a reason why they picked Russians to work for them there...

Again, I can't speak to current brands and technologies, but he should have at least three pair of shoes.

Trainers - every day shoes with good support;

Racing flats - lightweight shoes for race day, preferably with good traction for mixed surfaces;

Spikes - spiked shoes optimized for whatever surface the tracks are made of. Again, these are for race days only.

The two sets of racing shoes should last a while. The training shoes will wear out. Even the best of them lose the cushion in the soles after enough abuse.

300 @93

I would have loved to see that hull filled with our best missiles, and space to hold whatever new missile we come up with (and we badly need to replace Harpoon and TASM).

Long range shore bombardment is a capability without a demand. If our ships have to sit even 5 miles offshore, then there's a problem. If we haven't first suppressed the enemy's air power, and that includes ASM's, then we're not going in. There are just too many laser guided or smart weapons available to need a long-range naval rifle.

Historically, btw, the only naval bombardment that has really been effective is when destroyers would get crazy-close and bust things up, but even that scenario is hard to imagine. With things like TOW, the invaders can take out emplacements pretty quickly.

Someday lasers will be great AA weapons, for obvious reasons. Today is not that day. They're just not there yet, and really not even close. They'll get there, so having the power available isn't a bad idea.

So it would have been nice to see the DDG1000's replacing the Ticonderoga's. They should have ABM capabilities, full AAW, Full ASW, etc. How they don't, on a >10,000 ton hull, is inexcusable.

321 "And oh yes, there is a reason why they picked Russians to work for them there..."

?

The Muzzies learned the hard way back in the 1980s. Don't. Fuck. With. The. Russians. As you may have heard back then the Muzzies were big on kidnapping and/or killing foreigners, especially Americans. Don't recall exactly what set the Muslim terrorists off (maybe the Russian invasion of Afghanistan, not sure), but they decided to put the snatch on some Russians as well.

Thing is, the Russians have been hip deep in the Middle East as long as we have, and they have a better understanding of the Muslim mind. So as soon as the Muzzies started kidnapping Russians, the terrorist leaders sudden found members of their own families coming up missing, and shortly thereafter pieces of their family member's genitals delivered to them, along with a note saying, "We will keep sending you bits of your son's balls until you release our people".

You want to get a Muslim's attention real quick? Strip him, tie him and and threaten his genitals with a sharp object. Works every time (the Europeans should take note of this).

Needless to say, the Russians who had been kidnapped were released instantly, and no Muslim pig fucker has gone near one since. Even though the Soviet Union has long since collapsed, something tells me ol' Putin still maintains the same policy on dealing with Muslims who get out of line.

325 Fenolon - if you are still here - I spoke to my former runner/future husband about running shoes. He ran track and cross country through high school and college. He suggested that you go to a store that specializes in athletic gear and have your son try out a few different shoes for fit and comfort. Not too tight or loose, to prevent blisters. Let him get a feel for what is out there. Do not buy.


THEN call the coach at school on Monday. Ask him exactly what type of shoe your son needs. Then ask him if there is a store that has an arrangement with your school for discount prices. My friend said he never once paid full price for a pair of running shoes, as many schools have agreements with certain stores.

A story from way back when. The Iranians had captured our embassy and were holding hostages. A crowd gathered outside the Russian embassy. An ambassador came outside and walked up to the ringleader. He pulled his sleeve back, announced the time, then said, 'In 45 minutes there could be no more Iran'.

The crowd dispersed.

Heh. Last week I read Cape Fear, by John D. MacDonald, a 1958 book. (Originally titled 'The Executioners', and which was the book around which both Cape Fear movies were based).

In the book, Dad sends his daughter to the dock shop with a dollar to buy two beers and three sodas.

There was no mention of whether he expected his change; since he sent the daughter, I'd guess the answer was No.

Some things never change.

Had not heard that story, but it sounds about right. Note also that the Iranians released the hostages the day Ronald Reagan was sworn in. No doubt someone put the word to the Muzzies that Reagan was not Jimmuh Cartah, and that unless the hostages were released at once, within 24 hours of his (Reagan) taking office, the B-52s would come calling.

358 The very fine nephrologist who asked me "Do you happen to like beer?" warned me about... tea. There was a great tea fad couple years back, and people were carrying around half-gallons and chugging it all day. It's astringent, and in quantity is a hazard to kidney action. If you like tea, he said, by all means, have a cup. Have two. But don't use it all day long as a "health drink."

Coffee is not as dangerous as that. So, there's that.

Good family man, held a real steady job, beloved by all, but good Lord that man loved his whiskey. In the morning, first cup of coffee (brewed, when at home, on a wood stove -- he thought coffee tasted better over a wood fire), there would be whitecaps on the surface.
