Overnight Open Thread (3-6-2016)

Quote of the Day

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

-- Ronald Reagan

Quote of the Day

This was my second time around seeing him in person. My general impression this time was that he presents himself as a genial, very thin, grey-haired grandfather who just happens to be the impeached former president and current leader of a corrupt global foundation. He gave the crowd some personal details. He first met Hillary Rodham 45 years ago this month. She also twice (!) rejected his marriage proposal. Think about how different history would be if he had not proposed a third time.

-- PowerLine's Scott Johnson on seeing Bill Clinton live in Omaha

RIP Nancy Reagan

She was 94 years old. Ronald Reagan was lucky to have met her when he was still relatively young (38 ).

On Donald Trump and the 'Short Fingered Vulgarian' Thing

Back in the 80s Spy magazine used to snark on Donald Trump along with well everyone. But Trump could/can never ignore any criticism of him so of course he always attacked back - which was great for Spy since it gave them something to write about in the next issue and arguably for Trump as well since it got him free national publicity.

One of Spy's amusing but basically throw-away insults for Trump as to refer to him as the 'short-fingered vulgarian'. This would have been forgotten except that it really, really, really, really bothered Trump and lead to him sending various tracings of his hand (in gold sharpie of course) to Spy magazine to refute their claim and I believe at some point even getting a doctor to sign an affidavit that Trump's fingers were in fact normal-sized[never mind I must have misremembered this]. And he's never let it go and apparently still sends occasional pictures with his hands circled to Graydon Carter, former editor of Spy.

Now again all this might have been forgotten except that during the debate last week Marco Rubio referenced (somewhat ineptly) the short-fingered insult from the 80s. And that of course led to this scene and Trump declaring, "My fingers are long and beautiful, as, has been well-documented, are various other parts of my body."

Now to my non-expert eyes Trump's fingers do seem just a little stubby in some photos.  However the Washington Post did a full complete investigation and concluded that while Trump's fingers are not long, as best they can tell short of direct physical measurements they are not short either. So he seems to be mainly the victim of foreshortening. Or perhaps those rumors of finger-lengthening procedures in Asia back during the 90s weren't just rumors...

Hillary Clinton Personally Wrote 104 of the Classified Emails on Her Private Server

Later in the campaign there's going to be a lot of obfuscation and modified limited hangouts over how many classified documents were on the server and whether Hillary was ever actually involved or not. And these will all be lies of various forms. Hillary committed multiple felonies in her handling of classified documents either through sheer utter negligence or through deliberate indifference. Not that the reasons why matter in the law or in disqualifying from ever holding any office again.

To Flee Donald Trump's America, It Turns Out That You Will Need The Right Documents

Most countries have similar laws regarding immigrant workers as the US but they tend to actually enforce them. Bad luck for Miley then.

Work visas through a job are likely the most secure option but they're difficult to obtain. The long process starts with applying for a job in your wannabe home. In most countries, the employers must rule out locals who may be better-suited for the job before extending an offer to foreigners.

...Most nations require a foreigner to work for several years before attempting to apply for permanent residency or citizenship. . If you want to go one step further and become a citizen of another nation, get ready for a long road. That requires a lengthy legal process that starts with a temporary visa that turns into permanent resident status.

Also The American Passport Ain't What it Used To Be

If you're American, your nationality will open many doors-but not all of them, according to the 2016 Visa Restrictions Index. The annual list, released by London-based consulting firm Henley and Partners and the International Air Transport Association, ranks the countries that have the most travel freedom, based on how many nations its citizens can visit without a visa or by receiving one after they land. This year, CNN reports, America is in fourth place, down from its first-place ranking in both 2014 and 2015. And the new leader of the pack? Germany.

Norwegian Test Pilot: The F-35 Can Dogfight and Overall Outperform the F-16

From a pilot apparently with the qualifications and experience to compare to the two. Now I don't know enough to put his report in context with previous negative ones so I'll let you morons figure it out for me.

So how does the the F-35 behave in a dogfight? The offensive role feels somewhat different from what I am used to with the F-16. In the F-16, I had to be more patient than in the F-35, before pointing my nose at my opponent to employ weapons; pointing my nose and employing, before being safely established in the control position, would often lead to a role reversal, where the offensive became the defensive part.

The F-35 provides me as a pilot greater authority to point the nose of the airplane where I desire. (The F-35 is capable of significantly higher Angle of Attack (AOA) than the F-16. Angle of Attack describes the angle between the longitudinal axis of the plane - where nose is pointing - and where the aircraft is actually heading - the vector). This improved ability to point at my opponent enables me to deliver weapons earlier than I am used to with the F-16, it forces my opponent to react even more defensively, and it gives me the ability to reduce the airspeed quicker than in the F-16.

Update: Since I first wrote this post, I have flown additional sorties where I tried an even more aggressive approach to the control position - more aggressive than I thought possible. It worked just fine. The F-35 sticks on like glue, and it is very difficult for the defender to escape.

It may be difficult to understand why a fighter should be able to «brake» quickly. In the offensive role, this becomes important whenever I point my nose at an opponent who turns towards me. This results in a rapidly decreasing distance between our two airplanes. Being able to slow down quicker provides me the opportunity to maintain my nose pointed towards my opponent longer, thus allowing more opportunities to employ weapons, before the distance decreases so much that a role reversal takes place.

To sum it up, my experience so far is that the F-35 makes it easier for me to maintain the offensive role, and it provides me more opportunities to effectively employ weapons at my opponent.

Indy Man Falls 11 Stories into Florida Condo Pool

Hefley, a machinist, and his wife, Jamie, were vacationing and visiting friends in Florida when he decided to help a buddy install a tile floor in at a condominium in Panama City Beach.

They'd finished the job and went out onto the balcony. There was a lot of stooping and bending. The work was hard on his back, so Hefley leaned on the railing to stretch.

It felt good, he said, until he leaned a little too far.

"Next thing you know, my feet had come up over my head."

Hefley went over the side. He remembered his nose hitting the balcony deck.

Frantically, he tried to grab something to catch himself. It was no use.

As his body plunged past the balcony railing on the floor below, Hefley said he reached and pushed himself as far as he could away from the building.

He knew there was a swimming pool down below. He just needed to get past the concrete and land the water.

76 So, tonight Col. Bernie said, "When you're white, you don't know what it's like to live in a ghetto. You don't know what it's like to be poor."

I grew up in southeast Kentucky. There were times we didn't know what, or if, we'd eat the next day. Bernie's never seen the ramshackle buildings some of my neighbors and my own relatives lived in when I was a kid.

I know poor, Bernie. Screw you.

In Mark Twain's story Grandfather's Old Ram, Jim Blaine talks about the hand of Providence, as to an old acquaintance who had his spine broken by an Irishman falling from a scaffolding, saving the life of the Irishman. He went on to ask why the Irishman fell on the man instead of the dog next to him?
The dog would have MOVED. You can't rely on a dog to carry out special providence.

86 Hey all, nice to se you on the ONT.

Worked today, but it's been a nice evening, heck I just realized I need to get my pants off.

On this day of Nancy Reagan's passing I've been respectful. But in all honesty I'll have to mention a few things. When I pass I 'd expect people to be honest about the good and bad re: me.

As a resident of Dutch's hometown, Dixon IL I always got the distinct impression she would rather forget us and ignore his poor background, as she preferred to ignore hers.

I understand that inclination, but I think it's a bad one for society. Both of them came from parents that had nothing and they ended up as President and First Lady.

She was just what she was that she couldn't embrace that family part. No ill will here, I wish her family peace, tho she seems to have a tumultuous relationship w/ her kids.

I wish the family peace. Don't know the details, but some of them have been azzholes in the past few yrs. Maybe that has passed I hope.

The current Block-60 is pretty much a generation removed (and advanced) from the F-16s of the 1980's.

That being said, I'd like to know what mark of F-16 was in that comparison. That's a vital piece missing from the informational puzzle.

Unusual day. Friend of our daughter's is getting married. He has asked me to officiate their nuptials.

I've been a gen-u-wine registered minister for nearly forty-five years, but almost no one knows - Universal Life Church, FWIW - yeah - and I've never been asked to officiate at baptism, wedding, funeral, or anything else, even by friends & family who know.

I might get stage fright and faint.

So, I had a serious preliminary interview with him today. His wife is still in Thailand at the moment - no, no, it's not what you're thinking, you Morons - they're serious and in love - so I'll talk with the two of them when she's in the USA next month.

She wanted someone to marry them who was older than they, married only once, and had children - it's a Thai thing. I happen to qualify. As far as that goes.

Talked about devotion, fidelity, children, faith (they're both Buddhists!). Told him, whether they want to take advantage of it or not, I would consider myself their marital counselor for life.

Forced me to take myself seriously. That was different.

Thanks, daughter, for the recommendation.

117 LBJ would conduct business in the damned toilet. He'd force aides to come in the bathroom with him and just sit down and take a dump. They said McGeorge Bundy almost had a nervous breakdown when LBJ forced him to do that. He got has far away from LBJ as he could and turned his back. LBJ ordered him to come closer and just made him stand there and watch him take a shit.

They speculate it was a power thing. Consider your pets. You generally don't mind your cats and dogs seeing you do your business. You just don't think about.

Of course, now that I'm thinking, I had a cat once get very fascinated by a certain dangling feature of my anatomy. The thought of that cat deciding to play with it made me be sure not let it all hang out in her presence.

There was a story of a dude who had such a mishap. His wife had been bitching at about a slow draining bathroom sink. One Sunday morning, getting read for church, the sink clogged and she went off on him to fix it, and what a lazy bum he was and all that.

That pissed him off and he stormed out of the shower buck naked, got his wrenches and went right under the sink. He opened up the trap and was cleaning it out. He was down on his knees hunched over with his junk hanging down and jiggling around as he moved around.

The cat saw that and just couldn't resist and came up behind and gave those balls a good swat. When he felt it, he did what was natural and raised his head hard trying to come up ramrod straight. He based his head on the underside of the sink, knocking himself out cold in a bloody mess.

You don't have to go that far back. There was a big expose on Appalachian poverty back in the 1960s and I'm sure a lot of it still exists. With the coal mines closing down it probably will come back in a big way.

155 So he can spray 10 shots from a K98 all over the place faster than a guy with a 91/30? Big whoop.
He also seems to confuse accurate with precise.

Do my 91/30s shoot as well as a $1000 rifle? Nope. They were never designed to. Not a good comparison really. Perhaps that was in response to those who may have compared their MN's to higher end rifles.
All I know is that mine function just fine and shoot as well as I need them to.
Using one that is older than my parents, from a half kneeling/sitting position, I hit a ram shaped steel target (24 long by maybe 18 high at the head) 7 out of 10 times at 500 yards...with the iron sights.
Yes some of his criticisms of the rifle have merit, but it's clear he's a little unhinged when it comes to 91/30s.

Is WVU a gun-free zone? Will this be like Texas, where concealed carry on campus is OK?

Stubby, draggy, heavy airframe tries to fight at high AoA: oh crap, where'd all of the airspeed suddenly disappear to?

And once all the airspeed and energy have bled off, the F-35 does not get those back very soon. Slooooooow acceleration.

160 There was a big expose on Appalachian poverty back in the 1960s

I didn't live in a house with electricity or indoor plumbing til I was 10 years old and we moved to Atlanta. (I was born in 63)

Now, my grandma would whip your ass up one side the mountain and down the other if she caught you referring to our family as poor, but we didn't have much in the way of material goods!

Plenty of white folks around me here in the Ozarks in this Year of Our Lord 2016 that don't have electricity or indoor plumbing still.

167 As for the glowing report from the Norwegian pilot, the F-35 is (as is
its usual habit) voraciously eating up the entire capital spending budget for
the Norwegian military. This is controversial for some odd reason.

Especially with Norway being hard hit by the collapse in oil and gas prices. Economically, they are an arctic Qatar.

Needless
to say, Norway has brass hats who will order their subordinates to give
good reviews to weapons systems favored by said brass hats.

Likewise Australia. The local version of _60 Minutes_ ran a piece with two Aussie fighter jocks who had been given their orders to describe the F-35 as the greatest thing since Vegemite. Up until one of the flyboys suited up, and walked out to the ramp, and got in one of Australia's two brand spanking new F-35 jets, and.. ... ... ... ... ... endless tech delays. He eventually had to go get in the other jet to go deliver the expected show.

172 The thing about the domestication video is that cats do have a social structure. They tend to collect in prides like lions when the population density is high. Usually the queens will creche the kittens - you know, pool them like daycare - so they can go hunt, and they will make relationships outside of littermates that will last, as well as eventually accept some other cats in.

187 Again, just so you know, I'm pure as the wind driven snow and never, ever would engage in such activity. But a friend of mine confessed that once as a young man he had an itch he needed scratching upon waking (cue ZZ Top's "Woke Up With Wood").

A young cat, still in the very playfull phase noticed some interesting movement under the covers and took a flying pounce. The covers were thick enough for proper protection. That's one thing that drives cats crazy, rapid movement under sheets. They will pounce every time. And if the covers aren't thick enough.....the trouble is they don't know it's you and won't hold back.

If a cat has been properly acclimated to humans as a young kitten, most of then learn not to bite or scratch too hard. I've had several cats who were semi-feral that I tamed. You can't really play with them, because they haven't learned that, and will tear you up.

Just imagine what they'd do to your tender sensitive genital skin and tissue.

226 In the porn and close-to-it world, there is a great divide. There is straight porn, and then gay shit, and there is giant wall of separation between the two.

The former is all about what randy men want to see. And it's all about the women. The men in it are basically just props. Nobody wants to see them in the same way they want to see the women, you know objects of lust and body worship. The only purpose for the men is basically as props for the women to show their skills on. The men have to have amazing control and stamina, and impressive size is a plus, but the former two outweigh that.

It is only in the gay side where the men are the objects of the lust.

And that's pretty much market forces determining that.

And as a straight me, it just seems unmasculine to "pose" or try to be "hot" and beefcake in the way that I like to see women doing. Of course, I don't have to worry about any woman wanting to see me, so it's not a problem.

So all that's why the beefcake shit is mostly gay or has a homoerotic vibe to it.

234 What's the name of your book? We can pimp it on the book thread! Or did you tell us already and I forgot?

It's been several months. I'm embarrassed by it. The first in the series takes a long time to develop the characters. The following stories have less explanation of the characters and they just do what they do.

What I tried to do was explore human behavior and how characters interact when one or the other has an unusual trait. I need a grammarian, and an editor.

It's on Amazon as 'Wolf Hunters : Origins'.

238 173 The most puzzling Reagan quote is:

"The most terrifying sentence in the English language: I'm from the government and I'm here to help"

Government is the original hipster douchebag internet writer. You know the type, they write the stories that tell you that you have been using your fork the wrong way because they have discovered the absolutely most foolproof way to use the fork and that the inventor of the fork probably had meant for you to use the fork that way but hundreds of years had gone by and no one ever remembered to use the fork that way".

That is who the government is.

The type of people that demand fixes for things that aren't broken until those fixes are implemented. See, gasoline cans.

My favorite was a Domino's Pizza one up in Portsmouth, NH.

Back before everyone started locking their dumpsters.

I had to be quick to beat the raccoons though.

Sometimes someone would order and then not show up or they made some to sell by the slice and they didn't sell every slice. Plus bread sticks. Yummy.

It was cold though and no way to warm up but better than nothing.

265 The American Thinker blog had an interview with the guy who basically wrote the book on Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Trump is mentally ill. His performance used to be funny, but the closer he gets to the presidency the less funny this joke becomes. Seriously, Trump supporters, Ted Cruz is as conservative as this country will elect. He will deal with the illegals and the man understands the Constitution and what the country needs to stop the insanity of the Left. It's time (maybe past time) to get real. I respect and share your anger with the Republican Party, but don't send our country down the toilet because of it. Forget your fantasies about how Trump will fix everything. Vote Cruz.

I really don't understand the point you are trying to make.

First the French Revolution was mobs in the street, and had little to do with the ballot box. The Germans did vote for politicians who then went on to use government sanctioned violence to impose something, while the British keep voting for something. The Atlantic article used the 'Scandinavian' model where voters kept voting for 'social' (socialist) programs while making the capitalists pay the cost of those programs (Mixed economy.)

Your second point? I don't know who you are talking about. The Haymarket riots were mobs in the street, not voters at the ballot box. The labor unions at the Ford plant, and the United Mine workers were also mobs in the street facing company paramilitary forces; not much voting there. If you are talking about the '60's radicals who were hoping to trigger a revolution by committing violent crime, well I'm not really sure they were trying to incite a revolution or if they were just violent criminals who were just committing violent crimes because it made them feel powerful to do so (Charles Manson, and the Symbionese Liberation Front and Patty Hurst.)

I really don't want to get into a flame war. So, as far as I'm concerned, this ends the discussion.

Have a nice day.

Does the "overated gun" video get any better after the opening Mosin segment?

Because that part was pretty stupid. I suppose the "fanboy" framework is just one gigantic strawman configurationimposed to make for entertaining and overblown discussion. But the narrator doesn't sound that experienced with Mosins. The bolt action is generally very smooth, nothing like whatever outlandish simile he used. And also not as good as a Mauser or an Enfield - but, that's the point. Nobody with any experience makes such a comparison.

And the former Marine he used for his little side/side test doesn't know how to load using a stripper clip (as most do not, and he's probably using the cheap tin-like knock-off clips, not good ones). With amodified rifle(interrupter, commonly done when they were in action), an experienced user (as say, a Soviet soldier would have been in WWII, when the "garbage rod" bested the Mauser-carrying fellows in gray/green) can load very quickly.

Haven't bothered to actually read these sorts of diatribes in a long time, but there is kind of a weird genre out there of people who seem obsessed with Mosins, in a negative sense, especially their (relatively) low price. Could be some tension from the realization that 5X the price doesn't yield 5X the performance in a Mauser or Enfield - which again is stupid, because it's apples and oranges, and all the different platforms had their place and (obviously) worked well enough to be produced in large numbers and see service in many conflicts.

So how would the F-35 do in the relevant comparison (programmatically and tactically) - that is, against 3 or 4 F-16s? Or whatever a fair back-of-envelope estimate would be for current F-16s that could be bought for the cost of one F-35?

But if the cost dynamic of the F-35 program shrinks the resulting force as seems likely, to go along with the shrinking Navy surface fleet, it might be another step towards aligning our military capabilities and our political/social ones. In the old days it was aligning capabilities and commitments. Now a vastly reduced force structure seems much more congruent with the low level of seriousness and responsibility of the American people.

Thanks, Hat, but I think I'll hold off on that link. Just your reaction to it tells me it's yet another "are you kidding?" thing of the discouraging sort ..... no can take any more of that!

About the proposed CA law on employee travel. Some "GOP" assemblyman should offer an amendment to expand the restrictions. No travel to any states with less restrictive gun laws, less insane -er, "stringent" - "climate change" policies, and on and on.

Impose the whole panoply of CA idiocy on the thing. Why do CA employees have to leave the state - I mean aside from private trips to scout their sumptuous retirement properties? But that's not taxpayer-funded travel.

The only winners from a total ban on official CA employee travel would be 1) the rest of the US, and 2) CA taxpayers. Damn, sounds like the best idea out of Sacramento in about 40 years.

311 Morning, horde. Just arrived at Casa de Peon in Apache Junction after driving all day from Idaho Falls. Snow flurries just north of Kanab, Utah, and between Page and Flagstaff. Wet road, and snow on the verges until I got below 6000 feet southbound on I-17.


Nice here in AJ, 63 degrees. House is safe and sound. Got the water and power turned on. Will drink one beer then hit the sack.

Okay, so, if the glacier is actually growing bigger (and many are, just not the ones these idiots handpick), and you say the glacier is getting fat.....




Honestly, feminist "scholars" have been making up stupid shit for decades now. At some point you would think they would be called on it by intelligent scientists, but universities are ruled by low-functioning idiots who got degrees in sociology or administration, neither of which requires more than about a 72 IQ, apparently.

324 In the early 80's I took what I thought was a puff course in feminist literature. The paper they expected me to write was basically "make up some weird shit nobody has said about these crazy women authors and then defend it." I asked if maybe the insight shouldn't have some serious basis in what was actually written, but I was told that is now how this works.


I never did figure out what in hell they wanted me to say, and even if I had, I probably couldn't have written it coherently.

Art history wasn't much better. They couldn't have given a damn about objectivity or relation to other objects, they just wanted some odd crap that nobody had written before, whether or not it actually related to the topic at hand.


Thank God none of it turned out to be required for graduation. I would still be sans degree.

328 The fiancee and I took a chicken class today. The normal process involves being handed a heat lamp, a feeder, some food, a waterer, a sack of bedding, and four chicks at the end of the class. We took it in "reconnaissance mode" and didn't do that. Our trip to the place was delayed > 1/2 hour by mudslides on the road.

329 Here's a nice compilation video of Friday night's Falcon 9 launch:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYX7gvmiM9w

The time-lapse segment shows the rocket swaying in the wind while it's sitting on the pad. You don't usually see that.

Towards the end you can see the second stage burning, the first stage maneuvering for landing, and the two halves of the payload fairing, all illuminated by the sun at high altitude against a dark sky. This is why twilight launches are the best. You don't get that sort of detail in either daytime or nighttime launches.

332 As a Thompson owner/operator, I acknowledge it is helpful to have it packed around by a gun bearer. The gun bearer is also handy to have as a resting point.
After it is empty, it does cause significant damage as a blunt force object. Be sure to get some weight training before you start swinging around.

The mudslides were legal because they're part of the four seasons in Cali -- wildfire, mudslides, earthquake, and drought....

With a large-enough property, chickens are generally legal. Roosters, OTOH, can be an audible nuisance within a radius greater than a mile -- and they don't just fire off a half-hour before dawn.
