May 17, 2016 Overnight Thread - If it's Tuesday we must be having leftovers [Weirddave]

Sometimes Morons want to know how an ONT gets written. I dunno about Maet, but I found a video short that pretty much shows how it usually goes for me.


Breaking News: Marxists are Economic Idiots

And so are their wives. Liars too, to judge by the Story:

As Ms. Sanders pursued financing for the land acquisition, she repeatedly said that Burlington College had received more than $2 million in fundraising commitments and pledges, according to numerous records.
But in fiscal year 2011, Burlington College raised only $279,000—though the college had earlier claimed to have secured $1.2 million in confirmed pledges. Typically, between 91 and 94 percent of fundraising pledges come through, a recent study found after surveying more than a thousand nonprofits.

Five Military Weapons We Should Have Kept


Tomcat.png


Personally, I loved the Tomcat, but I've heard that there were growing logistics problems with keeping them in service. I also had no idea that we sank all of our Spruance-class destroyers. It seems beyond stupid to me, why not keep them in mothballs somewhere? Yes, I know that's an expense, but you can't tell me that maintaining these ships in a reserve fleet would cost more than building just 1 new one from scratch. Until they are completely antiquated, if the ball goes up, they'd be a lot better than no ships at all, particularly if the U.S. Navy suffered sudden loses at the outset of a war. They could be back in service in a fraction of the time it takes to build new ships.

It's a Dangerous World Out There

New York: Not safe for zebras.

Vans: Not safe for bison.

Florida: Not safe for Superman's pal.

I know we try to keep politics out of the ONT, but I was really disappointed that this was three different stories instead of one.

SJW angst

Why the ‘Ghostbusters’ Trailer Is the Most ‘Disliked’ Movie Trailer in YouTube History

There is a lot of hatred directed towards the new trailer, primarily because it stars four women (though the haters would have you believe misogyny is not the real driving force behind their invective) and seemingly not at all connected to its quality.

This is, bluntly, bullshit. Mysogyny has nothing to do with it. Women can do anything men can do (even pee standing up), and SJWs aside, it's the rare Troglodyte who thinks they can't. No, the problem with the new film is that it has no other reason to exist except “Grrlz!”. Ghostbusters was one of the greatest films of all time, thanks in no small part to smart writing and the chemistry between the stars. Naturally people are going to dislike ruining that just to push a social agenda. I can think of lots of ways an all girls Ghostbusters could be made (how about...The GB have started selling franchises, and these girls pool their money to start one? You could even have Murray, Aykroyd or Hudson cameo at their grand opening.). That movie I would watch. This one? Not so much.

48 Brewers beat the Cubs, yay!!! Almost got shut out by Chase Anderson, who never pitched past 6 innings before.

Through 6, I was hoping through a perfect game. Then he walked a Cub, and i was hoping for a no-no. Then Rizzo hit a double and I was hoping for a shutout and complete game. Then, with one out to go, Anderson gave up 2 HRs and our closer had to come in. Final score 4-2.

I wish it had ended differently - but so do the Cubs. I'll take the win.

61 Got to see government in action today - I went to a State Highway meeting about proposed road changes that affect a piece of commercial property my parents own. There has been talk about improving the road for twelve years now and the earliest any improvements could be done would be 2020. And we're talking about just a half-mile stretch of road leading up to a major intersection. And to top it off, nobody from the county was there to explain what the county envisions for the road and the area. The county wants to turn it into a quaint ersatz 'Main Street', the state wants to move traffic through the intersection, and the property owners don't want their parking taken away by road improvements. I don't think anybody is going to be happy when all is said and done.

Women can deadlift. As much? No. But they can do it.

You're making the classic mistake of ceding the rhetorical grounds to the enemy.

"I can do anything a man can do!"

"Yup. You sure can. Now lets talk about who does what better".

It moves the argument back to the reality based playing field, and that's where we win on the merits. Don't try to argue their non-specific, view from 10,000 feet attempt to shape the narrative. Concede the point. Then kill them with reality. Never fight on the ground of the enemy's choosing. Make them fight on yours.

There were. It was a hell of a jet, but also hell on maintainers. A ridiculous ratio of maintenance hours to flight hours.

Some of this was down to merely the aged design of electronics and hydraulics.

Towards the end, Grumman were pitching a combo deal. Build the new generation Super Tomcat 21, and, into the bargain, remanufacture most of the existing older Tomcat fleet to the same spec. Including tough new contractual specs for dispatch reliability. Completely redesigned and simplified systems. Greatly improved uptime, markedly lower costs.

But no.

Already at that time, the big multi-service push was on for the new wonder jet that would cover USAF, USN and USMC requirements all in one package. There was a lot of lobbying money greasing the skids in Clowngress for that program to get going. And none of that money came from Grumman, who were never going to be in contention for that fat new contract. Too small, too undercapitalized.

I can think of lots of ways an all girls Ghostbusters could be made (how about...The GB have started selling franchises, and these girls pool their money to start one? You could even have Murray, Aykroyd or Hudson cameo at their grand opening.). That movie I would watch. This one? Not so much."

It's going to get to the point where if you don't watch the new "girl power!" Ghostbusters and enthusiastically applaud it, you're going to be labeled a misogynist.

Like the Angry Video Game Nerd is being called for saying that he's not going to review the new Ghostbusters because he's not going to watch it.

I agree. You aren't fighting on their terms when you point out the beginning statement is wrong.

"Women can do anything men can do" is factually incorrect. WD had to add qualifiers to make this statement even plausible.

I got into a debate with a guy over the Bible treating men and women differently with regards to roles in the church. I simply pointed out.

1. Men and women are not the same biologically (bearing young, organs, etc.)
2. Physical differences also lead to psychological difference.
3. Different does not mean different worth.
4. Exceptions do not disprove the rule. (The fact that some single woman can do something as well as the average man doesn't disprove points 1 and 2. People have survived falling from great heights. It doesn't mean I should jump off of a five story building.)

He politely agreed to my logic and then went away commenting that it still wasn't right.

WD, you are the one conceding the basic point.

Women can't dunk!

XXXX can.

Oh. My mistake. Sorry, I was wrong.

134 Which argument do you want to have? Further, which one are you sure you can win?

Neither, I'm arguing with a woman.

Women cannot dunk, because dunk has a specific meaning, and it doesn't mean "jump on a trampoline and put a ping pong ball through a 5-foot hoop." It doesn't even matter whether the person I'm talking to agrees with me or changes their mind. All that matters is the truth.

Whether they change their minds or not is not in my hands. Whether I tell the truth or not is.

I worked for an electrical contractor who was colorblind.

My dad repaired color TVs for decades while color blind. He knew what it was supposed to look like. But people misunderstand what colorblind means. It doesn't mean you cannot see colors like a dog, it means you have a hard time discerning the difference between certain colors.

I gotta go with those calling bullshit. Like things that require upper body strength. There is a reason that up until recently, women were excluded from some professions such as firefighters, and it isn't misogyny. Part of a firefighters job is to carry unconscious people out of burning buildings. Not all of those people are going to be wee little babies. Some of them will be great big fat slobs. We still want our firefighters to be able to carry them out.

You made the point that even if women can't deadlift as much as men, they can still deadlift. That's not the point. Being able to deadlift 100 lbs just isn't going to cut it in some situations. In some situations, you need the people who can lift the most that people can lift. True, that won't just exclude women, it will exclude plenty of men as well. But, it will still exclude women.

It isn't a hatred of women that leads people to make these observations, it's just reality.

You'll lose with your plan.

you: Have her take it to the hoop against Kobe.

her: How well would you do?

you: What does that have to do with it? The only woman who can dunk, can't dunk on Kobe.

her: So, she can still dunk. More women would be able to if they weren't held back and instead encouraged to play sport.

Then down the path of SJW arguing you go. All because you have conceded that men and women are the same, excluding your criteria that somehow biological difference don't matter. Yet dunking a basketball and the fact that hardly any women can do it relates to the initial point that men and women are biologically different.

My dad repaired color TVs for decades while color
blind. He knew what it was supposed to look like. But people
misunderstand what colorblind means. It doesn't mean you cannot see
colors like a dog, it means you have a hard time discerning the
difference between certain colors.

Posted by: Christopher Taylor at May 17, 2016 11:08 PM

There are several different versions of color-blindness. I tend to mix up red/green for example. I met a guy who could not see yellow marker on a white-board. Anyway, color-blindness is not all the same thing, and it's definitely not all "inability to see color".

Also, it's OK that the sexes have different abilities. I think women and men should embrace who they are. If you're a woman, do what you can, and if you need help with something physical, ask. There will be times when something horribly detailed will be needed to be done, and you can return the favor for a guy.

It was also much less refined to production standard than the F-22. The proto F-22 you saw looks almost exactly like the model produced. MD/Northrop were still making refinements to the YF-23 and the Air Force didn't err on them making them.

I don't know if Long, another horrible Democrat, would be the right person to put up as the alternative. Willkie was the Republican alternative in 1940. The nation had already been through 8 years of FDR. But, they went for him again. Largely because FDR ran on a no war promise.

YF-23 was faster. And more stealthy. In all tested RF bands and in IR.

YF-22 was considerably more maneuverable in a simulated dogfight. Better yaw and roll response. Much better pitch response. Faster, more accurate nose pointing.

USAF fighter generals still privately harbored glorious Technicolor dreams of white scarves and gun kills. The better dogfighting jet was the obvious pick.

(However, personal predilections of the brass aside, Northrop was in political hot water at the time over delays and cost overruns on B-2. Never mind that they had delivered *something*, albeit late and expensive, which many reputable engineering authorities had sworn could never be done at all.)

Well, last Fall I was homeward-bound from AZ to Alberta, and stayed at Mesquite for the night. It was a long weekend, and traffic had been fierce on the I-15. Was being warned of several-hour delays on I-15 northbound through the gorge. The sweet old lady desk clerk at the casino there told me about the alternate route, so I took that. Never had to stop until I hit traffic lights in St. George, UT.

327 According to the Obama administration, there OFFICIALLY is no such things as MALE or FEMALE.

http://preview.tinyurl.com/jlkrsgx

"Biological sex" is "assigned" at birth by a doctor.

A Federal circuit court has even dismissed it as "so called 'biological sex'".

http://preview.tinyurl.com/gvacjpc

Funny how one's "sexual orientation" is hardwired in when biological sex itself is just a "social construct".

What makes matters even more frightening is that people are being increasingly punished for not validating other people's gender.

In New York, a business will be heavily fined if they don't ask for a customers "preferred gender pronouns" and use them... they can even be fined is another customer doesn't use them!

http://preview.tinyurl.com/jbe7efj

Not even the Hobson's choice of "if you don't want to bake a Gay wedding cake or use "xir/xirs/xirself" pronouns, then you shouldn't be working in that business"... (because according to the courts, you loose your free speech rights when you try to make a buck).

The irony: You can be denied service because you do not say there are five lights... in order to prevent people from being denied service.

Things can get fuzzy when people start naming generations as far as when the cutoffs are. But,

"The Greatest Generation" is a term made popular by journalist Tom Brokaw to describe the generation who grew up in the United States during the deprivation of the Great Depression, and then went on to fight in World War II, as well as those whose productivity within the war's home front made a decisive material contribution to the war effort, for which the generation is also termed the G.I. Generation.

http://tinyurl.com/h7uwpd7

Reminder: FDR was president from 1932 until his death in 1945. The Great Depression started in 1929. WWII for the US was end of 1941 until 1945.

FDR was the Greatest Generation's president and they elected him. Of course, older people also voted, so we can certainly spread the blame around to include their parents and even grandparents as well.

Too much power, too much spin, too much speed of the male players for them to keep up.

In 1940, Wendell Willkie was the interventionist. Yes, FDR had already started an "illegal" war with Germany in the Atlantic...but at the time FDR was claiming that he wasn't going to send American soldiers to fight in Europe.

Had Willkie won America would have been better off, because he likely would not have allowed the Soviets to steal American military secrets...

So, on one of those crazy conspiracy sites (which are IMHO, highly entertaining) put forth the proposition that the whole "gender free movement" is to get people used to transhumanism-at some point, we'll all be gender free neuters, like the gray aliens.

The other theory is that it's part of a Marxist theory to weaken the family by sexualizing everything-- this was supposedly done in Germany in the 1970's. Child sex was encouraged, and nothing was private-- essentially parents lose their role, to be replaced by the state.

Well, if they grew up during the Great Depression, that means they were children at the time FDR got elected the first time, no? If they were 21 in '32, and voted for FDR, they'd be 31 in '42, and almost too old for the the draft.

Reread my quote for what "the Greatest Generation" describes:
"The Greatest Generation" is a term made popular by journalist Tom Brokaw to describe the generation who grew up in the United States during the deprivation of the Great Depression, and then went on to fight in World War II, as well as those whose productivity within the war's home front made a decisive material contribution to the war effort, for which the generation is also termed the G.I. Generation.

People who grew up during the Great Depression were of voting age by 1942. At least many of them were. And as you concede, there were many people who were fighting in WWII who were older than 18. Some, quite a bit older.

If you would like me to concede that there were soldiers fighting at the start of WWII who were too young to have voted for FDR, I so concede. But, "The Greatest Generation" describes many, many more people than those who were 18 in 1942.

If we generalize, it is accurate to say that the person who was the president during and of the greatest generation was FDR. Especially since FDR was also reelected in 1944.

It's not a theory, and if I was at home I could give you links. The replacement of the family with the state has always been an intregal part of the Marxist blueprint for Utopia. They've always grudgingly admitted if not exactly advertised that fact. Engels was big on the concept, Marx dialed it way back in their published works on the theory that the world wasn't ready for it yet, social attitudes would have to be manipulated and changed before they could be more open about their intentions. He was right, but we're almost there, and the process is accelerating....

I don't know much about Germany in that period of time, but have read some strange things about what they were doing.

We live in a scary world. I hate to say this ,but I'm glad I don't have kids- not sure of what they're going to face, and if they will have a better life.

390 The Tomcat was getting long in the tooth, it's maintenance man hours per flight hour ratio was steadily climbing and the only thing it could do that the Hornet can't is carry the AIM-54 Phoenix, a missile that has never been used in combat and has a severely restricted use due to the current ROE. The Iowa class battleships, however, could be very useful in a littoral engagement. Nothing like 16" shells passing overhead in a steady barrage to soften a beach-head for an amphibious landing and cheaper to operate than aircraft for the same purpose.

The generation that was too young to fight in WWII, but too old to be baby boomers, are known as the "lost generation". They never have and never will election one of their generation as President.

Something we can agree on! Almost, anyway. I'm no expert on the names of generations, but Wikipedia claims that the term "lost generation" is used to describe those that came of age during the first world war. It looks like they use the term Silent Generation to describe the group you are talking about.

But that aside...

Having WWII veteran's status was a big help politically. Someone born during the war just didn't have the gravitas of someone who fought in it. By the time that the counter culture was politically dominant, the silents were too old and instead it was the boomers like Clinton (*spit*) who started getting elected.

409 The F-14 ran into the Hornet Mafia and the JSF Mafia along with the Peace Dividend. So the plan to remanufacture many low-time As and Bs got axed and the number of new build D models was also chopped. Which forced the Navy to keep fielding three airframes, two different radars, and two different engines until things started to go sideways in a big way on the maintenance side.

Tomcat 21 and ASF Tomcat were concepts that were truly mouth watering in capability without significantly altering the airframe. Pilot and RIO would have had configurable glass cockpits, built-in LANTIRN, full smart weapons capability while keeping the ability to fire missiles or gun. The glove vanes would have been deleted and additional fuel on top of the current 16,100lbs would have been carried there.

But again, Grumman was not positioned with the right political clout. So we will never know if those versions of the Tomcat would have been game changers.

410 Well, wish me luck. Just put in a bid on a 2009 ex-RCMP Suburban situated on Vancouver Island. Has about 110,000 miles on it, and does not run. Kind of suspect it might be the same cause as the '08 I have currently...they cut the wrong wires, taking out a remote start option. Kind of grubby, but it would clean up. Does have the rear seat in it, though.


I bid about the same money I got as a settlement for the '96 being wrecked in Utah, so if I win the bid, it amounts to a "new truck for old" deal. Will find out in a week; that's how long these sealed-bid sales run.


In other Suburban news, today I more or less officially "retired" the wounded '96. Replaced the alternator I had borrowed out of it, fired it up one more time, and moved it to a different spot on my lot, and took the batteries out of it, and put them in the old war-wagon '88 Suburban, which fired up instantly, after having sat all winter and Spring. May as well get some miles out of the old darling.

413 My comment for the night. Long, but pithy:



Blond on Blond is 50 years old.



WD: ...Women can do anything men can do... it's the rare Troglodyte who thinks they can't.

Rare troglodytes:

Christopher Taylor #17: Bullcrap... Women CANNOT do anything men can do. CAN NOT....

WOPR #20: ...They can't. Just as men can't do anything women can do....

I'm sure this was all beaten to death in comments past #20, but I'll chime in anyway with my 2¢.

Yeah, I kinda concur with these trogs, as a general rule, but it does remind me of two things:

2. Ginger did everything Fred did, backward and in high heels. Not absolutely true (see for example Fred's firecracker routine or drum solo dance) but still kinda funny.

1. My computer guru, from back in the early '80s / TRS-80 days, was fond of saying, any computer can do anything any other computer can do... it just takes longer. Again, not absolutely true, but...

...in that vein, given the right equalizers, women really can do just about anything men can do.

Reproductive functions aside.



My shoulder was hurting lately but getting better.

Then, a little while ago, I slipped on a wet floor and, going down hard, wrenched it and skinned my knee.

Milady brought me some healing ointment for the knee, but it must've been old because the plastic bottle just cracked open and spewed contents all over the desk.

So... I can take a hint... I'm going to bed.

414 ncj, that's quite interesting. Weren't the Tomahawks in box launchers, as on the Iowa-class?


Come to think of it, ASROCs were in their own box launchers, at least on some classes, going way back.


In any case, the cruise-missile task was not the only one the Spruance class could be used for, I assume. It didn't exist when they were designed, I think.


The economics of older systems are often very bad for unseen or mundane reasons, it seems. I think the $$$ considerations behind many retirements are paramount.

Have to say Nimitz and Spruance both had management/command styles I consider perfect, as well as simply admirable (no! no muldooning intended, honest). Delegate, find and trust/promote/empower good subordinates, tolerate no b.s. between subordinates. Not to mention stay calm, decide things quickly, and leave for long hikes in the midst of a crisis, after you've done your thing.

When a puppeh pisses on a rug, you have to (a) speak harshly, (b) rub their nose in it, and (c) give it a swat. You have to let it know it is in trouble, which trouble, and that there are consequences -- you need not cripple the pooch to fully explore those consequences, but you need to put enough adrenaline into the system to ensure they are memorable ones.




Socialists are all in denial about harsh words against socialism; they haven't fully appreciated that their current pain is an inevitable result of their past policies; and they think they can skate. So long as these conditions continue, they can starve to the last soul.

That only works if you catch them in the act. Even then you shouldn't hold a grudge, and offer praise when they poop outside. Otherwise they view it as anger towards the end result and not the cause.

Rubbing their noses in it after the fact only reminds them of the aftermath, not the cause of the smell.

OK, now you've got me LOL. I've been to the building, I've chatted with the receptionist, I've determined that your wife is well-known and highly respected -- and that the company is a bunch of regular Silicon Valley people, proud of the esoteric shit of what they do, and amiable towards those who show an interest.



And you characterize them as "monkeys".



There's this book I might recommend: "How to Win Friends and Influence People", by Dale Carnegie. It will, no doubt, be a revelation -- as you seem to have been born with no such skills. Though it doesn't come right out and say it, there is a strong inference that you shouldn't characterize people on your side as "monkeys".



If we're using your terms, you can assume that I'm on "Team Monkey" with the nice folks doing business on Walsh, rather than "Team Asshole" with.....er.....you.....in secret.....while your wife is working and can't see what an asshole you are.



It's clear from social media that she considers you to be some sort of Emotional Support Animal that could be replaced by a Corgi at any time -- and Corgis seldom embarrass themselves in internet comment sections. Why don't you stop embarrassing yourself in internet comment sections so you'll be a better companion than a dog?

447 Listen. I have it on good authority.

All of these news reports about Venezuela collapsing are just exaggerations and lies by the Right Wing Media, trying to discredit Socialism.

In the same way that Faux News and the Koch Bros.falsely portray Islamic countries as 5th-world shitholes, they portray Hugo Chavez's triumph and legacy as chaos. Do you really think that a noble country such as Venezuela would force the citizenry to go without toilet paper? Only a racist American wingnut could dream up such nonsense.

There have been no arguments or rebuttals presented -- just misbehaviour and ridicule of same.



But here's a proposition -- if we want to get rid of Ira, the asshole, for good.....we actively recruit Suze Ericson to be a Moronette. She is everything that he is not -- she is technically adept, employed, well-liked, well-respected, sociable, popular, respects the military, and is a point-of-contact for family and friends. And her money pays for his internet access.

455 I was on the Enterprise when we converted over to the F-14 and retired out venerable old F-4s (we were the first ship to get them in the fleet). Yes, the Tomcat was vastly superior to the F-4 in all categories. But it had one initial drawback, it was also vastly more costly than the F-4. Later on it as it aged (I was out by then) it became a hanger queen and extremely costly to maintain. But it was replaced by the "compromise" all things are possible F-18 which is nowhere near as good.


The F-35 if it ever gets in production promises to be the same type of failure.

The country has been shifting from State control to centralized Washington control since Adams took office. He was a big advocate of big government when he attended the Constitutional convention but he was thwarted by the VA delegates. Once he was President he immediately began actions to put it the way he wanted it.

And succeeding congresses and Presidents have continued to move in that direction. The uncivil war officially ended the Republican form of government where the States had any power.

481 One of the scariest experiences I ever had was on I-5 driving from Escondido to San Diego. I didn't know it was scary at the time, though.

I was stopped by a county sheriff's deputy. Back then I was a pretty cute trick and I was alone on the road. He pulled me over and asked where I was going. I told him I was on the way to catch a flight out and was expected to stop to say "good-bye" to friends. I was baffled when he wished me a good day and returned to his car.

Three years later I was watching 60 minutes when they ran a story about a California sheriff's deputy who was stopping, kidnapping, raping and killing women on I-5. When they showed his picture I recognized the deputy who had pulled me over.

My hand are shaking as I type this.

523 The unconstitutional Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978 is coming under a lot of fire now as it has become, if not from the start, an abuse of children and power by Indian tribe councils. The act was passed by the Democrat troika of Democrats in both houses and signed into law by the incompetent Jimmy Peanut. Much damage was done in those initial Crater years when he was allowed to run amuck with no opposition. But note that even after Republicans were elected to majorities in both houses none of this crap was repealed.

Of course it does. After they lost in Heller they did the normal liberal BS and simply reworded their illegal law and repassed it with the same provisions. The Judge should have issued a strong rebuke but evidently didn't.

Good Morning Morons. Today is Wednesday, May 18, 2016. On this day in 1933 signed into law his unconstitutional law creating the Tennessee Valley Authority. What is little known is that this government agency started out by commandeering private utilities' projects that were already in progress. FDR had been fighting private utilities since 1928 calling them an evil monopoly. Of course after he was through they were all still a monopoly because that was really the only way to do it. They were just under his thumb then instead of the individual States. Amongst all of this chicanery by FDR it was not noticed that nothing in the US Constitution gave the federal government the authority to own, or even regulate, State public utilities.

You want to see people trying to figure out how to spin this one?

The anti-gunners are up against a gun owners group known as the "Pink Pistols".
Gay,transgendered, undetermined, and just plain flamboyant individuals who have had their concealed carry permit struck down because they didn't have a good enough need in the eyes of the D.C.government to exercise their 2nd Amendment recognized right..

So basically, it's Gays vs Government...

It's worse than that. It values an inanimate thing, ie the "cultural heritage" of the tribe, over an actual human being, ie the child.

Liberals are the ultimate dehumanizers. They will bring about injustices against individuals, because they view humanity only in terms of statistics, or culture, rather than as individuals that are more than just cogs in a demographic group.

"Three years later I was watching 60 minutes when they ran a story about a California sheriff's deputy who was stopping, kidnapping, raping and killing women on I-5. When they showed his picture I recognized the deputy who had pulled me over."

Yikes.

There was an MP in my platoon, good guy from Georgia, who went to check out the firing range one night. Got out to take a wizz, got back in and drove back down the road. He told his partner to stop and go back. They dismounted and began searching the adjoining woods next to the range. Found a naked a woman with a rope around her neck and barely conscious. She told them a guy raped her and was strangling her when they pulled up and scared him off.

I asked him later what made him realize there was something happening he said he didn't know. He just had a bad feeling as they were driving down the road. A BOLA went out and they caught the guy the next day.

"You can keep claiming there was no other choice. I will keep believing it was an atrocious waste of resources."

Keep claiming?? I was making a point that military equipment costs to warehouse and maintain. As new equipment is being swapped out, why would you continue having older, inferior stuff around that will not have a resupply chain much longer? The reason you mothball in the first place is for replacemet parts for active equipment still in use (Eg. B52s, Bell Huey, etc..).

As others noted-- mission first.


However I noticed alot of non-essential equipment being burned or shoved into pits in Iraq simply because the officers did not want it on the hand receipts as they would have been personnaly liable for any equipment that did not make it back.

611 @594 That tear-jerkin' "Paradise" by John Prine? (Mr Peabody's coal train has hauled it away...)

It wasn't Peabody. It was the TVA that took down that town. To build the world's biggest coal-fired power plant. Little things ol' John left out of the song. Now, Peabody is bankrupt (and in Australia to boot) and TVA is still, um, with us.

When my dad was a kid, they were selling the idea of TVA as the Feds taking over "just one industry" and using the profits to run everything else. He says with all the grand schemes being floated at the time (mid-30's) it didn't seem that crazy.

Utah Phillips said he had a job once with the Rural Electrification Agency, installing power feeds to the only buildings in Indian territory that were up to code, that being the community latrines. That's right, he was the first man ever to wire a head for a reservation.

615 Hillary wants to appoint Bill to run the economy? If so, then she is in full agreement with Donald T on illegal immigration, because Bill's 1996 State of the Union pretty much laid out the Trump position as the Clinton position.

This is what pisses me off about faggot ass "CON-servitves" like Ryan, dude goes to a forum to decry the loss of religious liberty to fund raise and not to the well of the house to excoriate the administration that is doing it.

He is also uniquely positioned to push forward legislation to claw back these losses of freedom but instead his attention is focused on bailing out the failed common wealth of Puerto Rico and passing amnesty.

Fuck that guy, Paul Ryan is an asshole fuck face, he's not a conservative and he needs to be Cantored.

617 America can no longer win a war. Those days are behind us.

And destroying the military. Barry with the acquiescence of the Vichy Republicans have gutted the military and must have ruined morale with all of Barry social justice bullshit. One day that feces is going to hit the fan and we're going to pay a terrible price for it

618 Bernie isn't running against Hillary at this point, he is running against Biden. He needs enough delegates to survive a Torricelli move after the FBI torpedoes Hillary.

619 Vic, what went through your mind when you watched millions of dollars worth of military equipment deep-sixed?

Wasn't much else we could do with them as the ship was already full up with people and stuff. I was already disgusted with congress (run by Democrats) when we had to turn around and offload a bunch of aircraft we were ferrying over for the South.



We did the same at the end of WWII. Jeeps deep sixed.

620 Decon of equipment for FMD and other stuff is expensive. It might not be worth it.
