From this date in 1944 - at Anzio/Nettuno


Feb 8, 1944 - The EZ Dog Journal
Wakened up early with shells dropping into area. One within 100 yds of tent we were sleeping in. Looks like we really hit a "hot-spot".
Btry came up today. Landed about 1230. They spent the night in staging area near Anzio. Wind came up and rain poured. Brigade SOP.




Don't know which was more irksome, the incoming artillery or the rain.

That would be Jim Cleburne, comfortably ensconced in his "leadership" post by House Democrats who were terrified he'd out them as racists for taking him out of leadership when they lost their majority in 2010.

Of course, by creating the sinecure position he now occupies under threat of racist charges revealed the Democrats were, in fact, racists.

She will take the black vote in SC unless commie Bernie can work a miracle. The blacks have always gone for anyone with the last name of Clinton. The only time she lost the black vote in SC was when Obama ran. Blacks will ALWAYS vote for another black over a white, even if the black they are voting for is in jail.

I think you're reading too much into it. Frankly, I prefer the sermonizing to actual criminalization.

*Legally* I don't think drinking and driving (in and of itself) should be a crime; I don't care what your BAC is. We already have plenty of laws on the books regarding destruction of property, causing harm to others, etc.

OTOH, I think socially shaming those who do so is generally a good idea.

I didn't get caught stealing that car so it isn't a crime?!?! You want to argue that?

The assumption is that the drinking has you over the limit and the limit is so low it's difficult not to be over. I didn't like the commercial but you guys are reading way too much into it.

The plug is usually required for migratory waterfowl hunting, not for possession.

But check your state's laws.

All he said was he liked Trump the best out of everyone in the race.

The ostensible Ms. of the lesbian couple (his friends - they're really cool otherwise) went stompyfoot, left the room, came back in and announced that "anyone who wants to outlaw my marriage" could "leave my parent's house" right now.

He said he would if it was that big of a deal. I bit my tongue and we peaced out about 30 minutes later after Newton's fumble. I'm pissed at myself for pussing out but it was 12 vs 2 and the right thing to say (I'm sorry, what was it I said that was so objectionable?) was not to hand when she threw her shit fit.

If they still want to lionize her over "Standing By Her Man", then fack their old glory holes to the moon and back. Feminism has too many low points to mention on this blog, but, forming up in complete unwavering solidarity to support BJ Clinton then and now despite his known battery and rape of women is truly their second lowest point, with their first point being their absolute devotion to the unfettered, at times lethally incompetent and unsanitary practice of infanticide by tortuous dismemberment combined with the abhorrent illegal sale of those little baby bits to keep the abortion leadership wealthy and powerful. Of all the things that women needed for equality, they honed in on this most damaging and disgusting practice and made it their holiest of holies. They neatly ignore that half or more of the julienned babies are female and therefore their constituents. Feminism in its latest incarnation is even crazier and less relevant and they wonder why young women are not joining them in droves.

247 So, Gaga sang the national anthem quite well in most people's opinions. And singing it even passably invokes comparisons to Whitney Houston, who sang it in 1991.

My first thought was that there must be something wrong with a song that is so difficult to sing that it can only be done well every 25 years.

But no! We're Americans, damnit. Let those flouncy Euros have their ditties, let Russian have its marching to war shouts, let Canada have that thing that happens before hockey games.

Our national anthem kills most of the people who attempt it because we're the world's goddamn honey badgers.

After watching it, I looked up the names of Klimt's models to see what happened to them. By the time the nazis took power, they were old women with families. They were all sent to transport camps and then death camps. The nazis kept such great records. Few survived. And the ones that did, were shot by the commies when they came to power.

If we're not going to bench Cam Newton in exchange for a woman for a full quarter because fairness to women, even if he loses the game, it's totally insane that we replace beasts with beauties in combat.

For years, I've ranted that feminists aren't serious about "equality" in the military until they advocate for universal female registration for the draft. You'll note that it's the MILITARY that put forth the proposal.

The feminist usual suspects are suspiciously silent on the matter. And of course, that's because they want the benefits of membership in the combat arms branches, but they aren't willing to assume the associated sacrifices and responsibilities.

Actually, there was a HUGE feminist push to get women into the trades in the 1980s. They saw all those high paying UNION jobs and wanted women in those slots. It's part of the genesis of where the SBA set asides for women/minority owned businesses. It was largely unsuccessful because a great deal of it is hot dirty work requiring great physical strength and stamina. Women did make inroads into finish carpentry and painting. It did cause a lot of men to put their businesses in their wive's names so they could bid on set aside projects.

Milady Webworker came out of a Chicago Democrat family and environment in the 1960s. The kind of folk who, these days, just know that Hillary is the right candidate. She said she started studying feminism in college, and the more she read, the less sense the feminists made. Self-deprogrammed.

Always amusing to me to hear her, nowadays, exclaiming about the latest stupid feminist thing, knowing what her sisters might think if they heard her. Like the first time I heard her describe herself as "conservative." Whoa!

'Way back when, I, too, thought the modern feminist movemen was important. Seeking equal treatment in the workplace, getting rid of barriers to opportunity, all seemed like an extension of the old enfranchisement battle. I viewed it as just one more facet for human rights.

It wasn't the superficial issues, like the language nazis, - the power-women I respected were, like, the head of some corporation who said she didn't give a flip about being called "chairman" instead of "chairwoman" because she knew she was the boss! Confidence, not victimhood.

I believe that kind of "feminism" is still important, but "feminism" as a brand is spoiled, and, as with race relations, much of the battle against prejudice has long since been won, in America at least, and what's left is screaming harpies making up new insane causes, like the rabid environmentalists crying about global warming long after the water's clean.

305 I'm not a Cam Newton fan, but I was defending him about that loose ball thing. My impression was that he didn't dive into the pile because he was trying to stay mobile and get a good look at where the ball was. But then I saw the GIF replay of it and I gotta admit that his initial move *away* from the ball and forming pile of players does look bad. However, I'm still kind of reserving judgment on it because sometimes a short clip like that from a certain camera angle can be misleading.

Given all the BLM and Millenial PCness of yesterday's game, it's probably for the best that Newton didn't win. I knew he was not a very gracious winner, but I didn't realize what a sore loser he was. Maybe this loss will help him develop some character.

He's really improved his game on the field (yesterday's performance notwithstanding), but he has a lot of growing up to do.

Israel uses women in the military for logistical reasons. And yes, they go on combat patrols, but carefully controlled ones.

I doubt very much whether in a real war Israeli women will see combat.

There is nothing wrong with women driving trucks and cooking meals and working in staff positions. Hell, most men in any military never see combat. And there is nothing wrong with that!

311 Israel uses women in the military for logistical reasons. And yes, they go on combat patrols, but carefully controlled ones.

I doubt very much whether in a real war Israeli women will see combat.

There is nothing wrong with women driving trucks and cooking meals and working in staff positions. Hell, most men in any military never see combat. And there is nothing wrong with that!

Husband called me a hater for not liking Gaga. I want people to just sing the song, not show me their vocal range.



I thought she did a good job.



Coldplay on the other hand should be beaten with Lemmy's old bass.

Coldplay's sound man should have been double-tapped for the lameness of the band's volume. Beyonce and Bruno Mars were intelligible and it was good. (Dunno why Coldplay was there at all, but..demographics, yadda yadda.) I can groove out to "Uptown Funk" any time.

The IDF does not put women in combat. They will serve as combat medics and defend towns with lethal force. An American-Israeli teen out shown herself by killing 4 terrorists trying to infiltrate a settlement in the middle of the night. She advanced on them and kept shooting.

319 Israel has a 'man' power problem which requires women to be part of the combat readiness troops.

Posted by: Max Rockatansky at February 08, 2016 10:01 AM (AEEhl)

320 Women in logistical positions freeing up men for combat is prudent. The women would see some combat just because modern warfare is fluid, but not as much as men in the combat arms. Women in combat arms and in close quarters like subs...no. There's nothing prudent about it. It's politics before military efficiency. If a candidate told me that he would reverse this, and if elected actually followed through, he would gain a lot of loyalty from me.

There's a guy on HurryUpHarry who immigrated from the UK to Israel. He is a big lefty twat. But when called to arms, he is with his buddies in the thick of it. No more lefty b.s. It's kill or be killed. His loyalty is entirely with Israel. It seems that Israel has too many fifth columnists.

334 #304 My parents were lifelong salt of the Earth Depression Era FDR WWII Democrats. I watched feminism and saw it ignore the real needs of women for something women did not really need. By the time, abortion was legalized, no woman's life was ruined by an untimely infant. There was almost no stigma attached to it by then. You put it up for adoption and everybody got on with their lives. The things that women really needed, they ignored:

1. Rape and sexual assault help. At the time of Roe v Wade, women were still put on trial by the defense if they dared try to prosecute a rape. Women were essentially given the same advice as the gals in Cologne are now getting--if you get raped, it must've been because you were in the wrong place, wrong time, and wearing the wrong clothes.
2. Help with deadbeat Dads for child support. Unfortunately, this has swung too much the other way and now some Dads need protection from their exes.
3. Help with domestic violence. This is still a huge issue.
4. Equal pay for equal work. This gradually equalized, but, at the time of Roe v Wade, it impacted far more women than the need for an abortion.

335 I don't think anyone else has said it yet, so I'll put down the marker:
The 2016 Olympics will not take place.

But in addition, I note that CDC and others have blamed not just Zika but a couple of other fast-moving diseases on all the people who travel internationally for sporting events. I'd never have guessed that such a large proportion of world travel was athletes and fans, jetting about. There's a challenge in this claim, and there has to be an element of Revenge of The Nerds.

Would a government agency be so bold as to insinuate that Semester Abroad travel, or "Hiking in Europe" or "Mission Trips to The Third World" were the cause of an epidemic? With ebola, they stuck their neck out to quash the notion.

Yes, I kind of, sort of, think that the role of "Sport" in the current world is inflated. I have bad memories of school, big deal. But people like what they like, and it's spooky action to bevel the statistics like that. Anti-Sport "movement."

340 Israel also teaches their women to fight because they remember all those defenseless Jewish women and their children being sent to their deaths in the camps. You try to drag any Israeli to a camp and it's not going to go well for you. You might eventually get them there, but, it will be over piles and piles and piles of your own dead.

Yeah, open borders has *nothing* to do with it, and that they weren't checking blood donations for it (because it was just discovered to be transmitted by blood, saliva).

You can't open your southern border, and intentionally advertise in cetral and south America countries that you will accept unaccompanied minors, and not expect there to be some bugs brought in with them -- TB, whooping cough, mumps, EV-68, and now potentially Zika -- especially when you then force public schools to admit them without vaccination records (because: none). It's like our leaders are intentionally un-learning what our ancestors knew.

Posted by: Lizzy at February 08, 2016 10:14 AM (NOIQH)

345 Once you accept the absence of DDT, the absence of quarantine powers, and the lack of inoculation requirements, you have to accept other things. Restrictions on "unnecessary" travel for the peons, for one. Stay home, flyover peasants. It's a dangerous world out there.

The Mediterranean was closed for generations following the great plagues. Trade and diplomacy collapsed. And every time trade routes re-opened, new plagues sprang up. Well into the 20th century, Oman and some other points were "quarantine ports," where all ships had to lay at anchor for a prescribed period to show that no one on board was carrying the disease du jour. I can think of a couple of times I might have re-instituted that (and a time or two when the airport looked like someone had...)

The future may not be what we expected. "Modern medicine"...isn't.
When I think of the CDC being in charge of all this, I sleep better at night. At home, with my passport in the safe. And I go out once a week.
