Overnight Open Thread (6-14-2016)

Quote of the Day I

It is no coincidence that during the eight years of the Obama administration, the American military has been emasculated by budget cuts that have resulted in a radical diminishment of both personnel and battle-readiness of its air and naval forces. Nor should we be so surprised that all three of Obama's former secretaries of defense have come out publicly against the administration in an unprecedented fashion. Or that a key American ally in the Middle East, King Abdullah II of Jordan, would actually say privately that "I think I believe in American power more than Obama does."

-- David Hazony in The Mind of the President

Quote of the Day II

In a petition to the English Department, Yale undergraduates declare that a required two-semester seminar on Major English Poets is a danger to their well-being. Never mind that the offending poets - Shakespeare, Chaucer, Donne, Milton, Wordsworth, et al. - are the foundational writers in the English language. It is as if chemistry students objected to learning the periodic table of elements or math students rose up against the teaching of differential calculus. The petition's implicit contention is that the major poets are too circumscribed by their race and gender to speak to today's socially aware students, when, in fact, it is the students who are too blinkered by race and gender to marvel at great works of art. It takes a deeply impoverished imagination to read Shakespeare and regard him simply as an agent of the patriarchy.

-- Rich Lowry

Quote of the Day III

Citigroup Inc sued AT&T Inc on Friday, saying the phone company's use of "thanks" and "AT&T thanks" in a new customer loyalty program infringed its trademark rights to the phrase "thankyou."

The French Don't Seem To Have Any Problem Seeing What's Right in Front of Us

Francois Hollande, the President of France, set a bold tone in response, immediately going before the press and labeling the murder as "unquestionably a terrorist act." His Interior Minister, Bernard Cazeneuve, quickly followed suit, calling the killing "an abject terrorist act."

Why would they not? Much like the slaughter in Orlando, Larossi Abballa used his Facebook video to proclaim that he was specifically answering the call of Abu Mohammed al-Adnani to attack western targets in Europe and the United States during Ramadan. An ISIS backed news outlet quickly reported that the killings were perpetrated by "an Islamic State fighter."

That's really the whole point here. The French don't need to wring their hands and wonder if Abballa was a member of some disaffected community which has a complaint with police officers. Nobody is debating whether or not he's part of a political party which doesn't capture enough votes in each election. The guy announced quite clearly that he was taking up the bloody flag of jihad and following the orders of his terrorist masters. Whether they had contacted him directly, supplied the knife he used or identified the target doesn't matter.

Senate High Flyers

Sen. Charles Schumer spent $292,000 in public money flying private airplanes last year. His protégé Sen. Kristen Gillibrand spent more than $150,000 on charter travel.

The two New York Democrats were the top spenders on private air travel between October 2014 and September 2015, an analysis of Senate office-account records shows.

Third place is held by a lawmaker from the other side of the political aisle and the other side of the country: Republican Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming spent more than $75,000 in the last fiscal year flying charters.

Frequent charter flyers are the exceptions in the current Senate. Few senators regularly sprung for luxury corporate travel in the 2014-2015 period. Schumer and Gillibrand stood out from their colleagues in another way: by racking up the largest credit card late fees in the world's greatest deliberative body.

$292,000 comes out to $800/day 365 days a year of flying expenses.

Seven Awesome Conservative Lifehacks by Kurt Schlichter

This Is How All Bureaucrats Should Be Answered

So What Do They Know

It's not like they've been there and seen Islam as practiced by Muslims up close and personal...oh wait.

The vast majority of Australian Defence Force personnel believes the Muslim religion promotes violence and terrorism, despite "cultural sensitivity training" by the ADF to have its soldiers take the view that Islam is a religion of peace.

The bombshell new study sponsored by the army finds that such "anti-Muslim sentiments" are "probably quite widespread" among Australian frontline troops in Iraq and Afghanistan ...

...Dr Miller, who is a lecturer in Strategic and Defence Studies at the Australian National University, writes that "in this study, I use a technique designed to elicit frank responses to sensitive questions - the 'list experiment' - to examine ADF views on Islam."

"I find little evidence that the official 'Islam as a religion of peace' narrative is widely accepted, nor is there evidence that cultural sensitivity training has any effect," he says.

Photos of Slender Women Banned on London Public Transit by Muslim Mayor

But for PC reasons.

This Protein World advertisement received numerous complaint from female Tube riders who didn't appreciate seeing an airbrushed skinny chick on their daily commute. The group that reviews such complaints said they saw nothing obviously discriminatory or profane about the ad. So the new Mayor replaced them with a new "steering committee" of heavyset watercolorists and pre-school teachers who immediately deemed the ad body shaming and had it removed. The Mayor announced a public transit system wide ban on anything similar in the future.

Most Black People Now Think O.J. Was Guilty

In the two decades since Simpson was acquitted by a majority-black jury, the racial gap has narrowed significantly. In two recent polls, more than 50 percent of black respondents said they thought Simpson was guilty - up from about 20 percent in most polls before, during and right after the trial.

47 "Which party rather than straight up cutting money came up with the brilliant idea of sequestration?"

Obama during his debates with the Mittbot 3000 said that sequestration had been proposed by Congress, not by his administration, and also said flatly that sequestration "will not happen".

It's pretty clear if you look at the historical record that sequestration was originally a creation of the Obama White House -- admitted to by aides there -- and of course it did happen, Obama's disavowal notwithstanding.

Because while it didn't originate with Congress, the GOP leadership in both houses immediately embraced it, and whipped their members hard to vote it through.

Yet another one of Lyin' Ryan's "key conservative victories."

(Sequestration went through under Agent Orange Boehner, but Ryan was one of the principal negotiators of the deal.)

One of the young Guevaras had an English (?) teacher who was Maya Angelou, all the time. Also had a life-size cutout of the Negro Nullity in the classroom, and regularly produced laughably wrong vocabulary sheets (I trust you're getting the picture here.)
Re Maya Angelou, I always think of Dr. Johnson's comment re women preachers:
"I told him I had been that morning at
a meeting of the people called Quakers, where I had heard a woman
preach. Johnson: "Sir, a woman's preaching is like a
dog's walking on his hind legs. It is not done well; but you
are surprised to find it done at all."

Why doesn't Yale inform them that there are hella more where they came from, and if they deem any part of the Yale curriculum "unsafe" they should pack their bags and attend their safety - er, a "safe" school??

To really get it, you need to do a complete exegesis of a scene in Shakespeare, looking up every word in the Oxford English dictionary.

I had to do that as a lit minor, and at the time thought it was bullshit, until I did it. Then I realized I'd missed 90% of the import, between changes in usage over the last 500 years, and failure to understand idiomatic expressions of the 16th century.

"Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world
Like a Colossus, and we petty men
Walk under his huge legs and peep about
To find ourselves dishonorable graves.

Men at some time are masters of their fates.
The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars
But in ourselves, that we are underlings.

Brutus and Caesar - what should be in that "Caesar"?
Why should that name be sounded more than yours?
Write them together, yours is as fair a name.
Sound them, it doth become the mouth as well.
Weigh them, it is as heavy. Conjure with 'em,

175 I have to say my favorite shakespeaker tradgedy is Julius Ceaser.

-
O, pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth,
That I am meek and gentle with these butchers!
Thou art the ruins of the noblest man
That ever lived in the tide of times.
Woe to the hand that shed this costly blood!
Over thy wounds now do I prophesy,--
Which, like dumb mouths, do ope their ruby lips,
To beg the voice and utterance of my tongue--
A curse shall light upon the limbs of men;
Domestic fury and fierce civil strife
Shall cumber all the parts of Italy;
Blood and destruction shall be so in use
And dreadful objects so familiar
That mothers shall but smile when they behold
Their infants quarter'd with the hands of war;
All pity choked with custom of fell deeds:
And Caesar's spirit, ranging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice
Cry 'Havoc,' and let slip the dogs of war;
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial.

I posted this in an earlier thread. It's treason. It's flaming skull worthy. The Obama Admin supported Al Quaeda in Iraq hoping that they'd gel with other rebel groups in name of Jihad and fight Assad.

They gelled with other rebel groups in the name of Jihad and became ISIS.


So they basically gave aid and comfort to the enemy during a Congressionally authorized war that was never officially ended, in the pursuit of an objective that wasn't worth pursuing, and created a clear and present danger to the region and to the citizenry of the United States...

...an agent of which just murdered 49 Americans on American soil.

214 Hey everybody.

I don't usually watch old Andy Griffith Show reruns on TV Land, but just happened to see one from 1961 this morning.

It was IMHO kind of relevant to today's government irresponsibility and political correctness. Seems an older Mayberry resident named Frank, with a crumbling home, hasn't paid his rent (or was it property taxes?) so the city wanted to evict him. Then while chatting with Andy, this old guy finds he has a circa-1861 $100 municipal bond, promising to pay 8.5 percent per year.

Well, Andy calls the bank to find out what it's worth in 1961. Turns out, about $349,000.00. So the town elders are in a panic, because they couldn't possibly pay the bond without bankrupting Mayberry. But never does it occur to the elders to do the right thing and reimburse Frank somehow.

*Then,* it turns out the bond was originally paid for... with CONFEDERATE money. So the town elders want to evict him again.

Of course it had a happy ending and all. Still, between the themes of government arrogance and PCism (the Confederate angle)... again, it seemed kind of prescient to me.

This day is called the feast of Crispian:
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when the day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say 'To-morrow is Saint Crispian:'
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars.
And say 'These wounds I had on Crispin's day.'
Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day: then shall our names.
Familiar in his mouth as household words
Harry the king, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,
Be in their flowing cups freshly remember'd.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember'd;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.

need to hear the words out loud. that's when you get it.

I agree. My English teachers were all smart enough to have

251 I've heard that Moonlighting could have gone on longer, *but* Cybill Shepherd basically couldn't handle success and went full Shelley Long on the rest of the cast and crew.

Then Bruce Willis responded by deciding he didn't give a shit anymore and not showing up half the time, just so he wouldn't have to deal with Cybill. Besides, he was becoming a huge movie star and did "Die Hard" during the time Moonlighting was dying.

Kind of sad. Again, it was a great show.

I have an ancient Presto that does the trick nicely. My mom showed me how to smoke salmon (yeah, I know, it's hard to keep lit...) and then can it to last just about forever.

I also do waterbath canning for most veggies, and in particular anything with tomotoes or apples. Lots of raspberry jelly, blueberry jam, rosehip jelly, etc.

I like glass, because it is easily reusable and looks so nice on the shelves. The only issue would be sealing gaskets after the burning times, but I suspect that could be surmounted with rubber gaskets. Less reliable and more trouble, but probably just as good for the pressure cooker.

But when he was cast in DH, that was TOTALLY out of character. He'd never done an action role before, and if I remember correctly there was a lot of "Really? Bruce Willis?" going on at the time.

346 Torque,

Anna will likely have the details, but there was that one flight with the white painted X-15, where I think the exceeded Mach 5, and got into the high 6 or low 7 range.

And it was melting the Iconel on the vertical stabilizer, and tore off a part of the ventral stabilizer.

The new hypersonic test platforms.... ceramics, or shuttle-type foam-ceramics, y'think?

I do know that the SR-71 was capable of far greater than it's published Mach 3.2. The author of Sled Driver claims exceeding 3.5 on that Libyan run. And pilots around their base in CA (George AFB?) were rumored to have sported some Mach 5+ patches, but hell, that could've been mis-info to throw off the improperly interested.

If it hit those numbers, then surely, that was only a "sprint" speed, and not a sustained cruise?

But imagine a Blackbird with shuttle-type foam-ceramic on the leading edges and other critical surfaces.

Mazda would have to surrender the "Zoom-Zoom" trademark on that one.

You beat me to it. They were mostly cautionary tales.

There are versions of Hansel and Gretel, from Asia, which imply that a new dad forces mom to abandon the kids, which makes sense historically. In which case, cautionary tale for women.

A little over a decade ago, I decided to take guitar lessons. At the end end of Lesson #1, my homework was to bring back "what I learned, and a cd of one song you want to learn to play."
I took the guy Dire Straits' Romeo And Juliet, telling him it was the greatest rock n' roll love song ever...

The next week, he said "this isn't a love song, it's so sad!"
Yeah, man. That's what love is.
I never went back for lesson #3. In fact, I don't think I ever pulled the thing out of her case since that day.

365 Shakespeare's Roman plays are mostly from Plutarch, I recall. Same with the "Rome" series.

That's why Mark Antony's speech is offstage in "Rome"; because it wasn't written down, but people *did* see it. So the historians were able to gather up the general flow of it.

By contrast if you see a full quoted speech in a Roman (or Greek) history, it's made up. As in, near total bullshit. Usually Tacitus or Herodotus used speeches to score some sort of point about contemporary politics.

Accumulated general knowledge. It's like the famous, "Romeo, Romeo -- wherefore art thou, Romeo?"

The release would, the messaging indicated, prove that Secretary Clinton had, in fact, laid open U.S. secrets to foreign interception by putting highly-classified Government reports onto a private server in violation of U.S. law, and that, as suspected, the server had been targeted and hacked by foreign intelligence services."

Russia Is Reportedly Set To Release Clinton's Intercepted Emails

"Reliable
intelligence sources in the West have indicated that warnings had been
received that the Russian Government could in the near future release
the text of email messages intercepted from U.S. Presidential candidate
Hillary Clinton's private e-mail server from the time she was U.S.
Secretary of State. The release would, the messaging indicated, prove
that Secretary Clinton had, in fact, laid open U.S. secrets to foreign
interception by putting highly-classified Government reports onto a
private server in violation of U.S. law, and that, as suspected, the
server had been targeted and hacked by foreign intelligence services."

Well now, here's a theory from the comments:

>>Look at the article. It's claims are based solely on "reliable intelligence sources in the West". It's not even attributed to an author, just "Defense & Foreign Affairs". If you click around on the oilprice.com site, you'll find that the article is from someone at the International Strategic Studies Association, another DC-based NGO with connections to NATO and the defense establishment.

446 Those who accept speech codes written by leftist tyrants are little better themselves. I mean those Republicans in congress who are complaining about Trump's speech yesterday. To me the speech was a breath of fresh air. Yet to them is was racist and wicked.

To me this election is more than just who wins the presidency in 2016. Don't get me wrong it matters, but there is something else that matters more - Is this country going to survive as a single nation much longer? I would rather we find that out now, rather than wait another ten years only to end up asking the same question in 2026.

The longer we wait to learn that answer, the worse it will be for those that still love America if the answer is bad. So I love what Trump has done, for he is forcing people in this country to make up their minds and make hard choices.

Hard choices make people unhappy, because it makes them face reality. For example, because of Trump, we can scratch out a lot GOP congressmen and "twitter conservatives" as being for team America.

They are a cowardly set of people, who use the crutch of "principled conservative" as a way to keep living in a fantasy. Conservatism is dead, libertarianism was never alive in the first place, and they are responsible for why we are here.

They will tell you how we must not offend anyone, while those that offend everyday are plotting putting our nation into a nightmare. No...I think I have had enough of watching my language and worrying about people's feelings. I am sure there are many others. Thank god for Trump...

Here's the part that disgusts me. And really it started with Bush 43 and his response to 9/11. All the 'grieving'. All the maudlin nonsense.

'A grieving nation'? Save that crap.

We should have been a very angry nation then, at the Tora Bora cave-dwellers and their regional enablers.

And we should be a very angry nation now, for the fifteen years of failed leadership from both parties that's hidden behind waving flags and 'religion of peace' and left us about where we were then.

I have not been able to sit through an entire speech from any President since Bush 41.

I'm sure I've said before that Clinton always looked like he was thinking "I'm up here lying my ass off, and you're sucking it up, and I'm gonna keep doing it and you're gonna keep licking me." That smarmy little smirk.

Bush 43 was mostly just annoying in a lightweight sort of way, he rose to the occasion now and then.

564 Well, I ventured back to Facebook. Bad timing. I decided to write my own post rather than rage on those of my idiot liberal friends.

Here it is:

Nyamata Church in Rwanda is a site where 12,000 were killed by grenades, gunfire and machetes. Some 50,000 more from the surrounding area are buried there as well. I had the opportunity to visit the memorial in 2012.

Any conversation on gun control which does not address the frequent outcome of disarming an entire population misunderstands history, human nature, and the intent of the 2nd amendment.

Any proposed solution to somehow prevent humans who plan and act on murderous impulse by limiting access to the implements by which they do so is grimly laughable. Humans slaughtered each other with rocks and edged weapons in huge numbers for a very long time before firearms were developed. In fact, they still do; modern events remind us that a gas can and a match can kill 87; that bombs can kill even more; and as referenced above, machetes can kill almost literally uncountable numbers if the victims are over matched.

I'm dissatisfied with a world where death looms so large, in such evil and unpredictable ways. I'm grieved and saddened, but not so surprised anymore.

I will seek peace and pursue it. I will continue to believe that my struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. And I will also teach my children to use firearms safely and well and be prepared to use them if that need ultimately arises.

Posted by: MAx at June 15, 2016 12:53 AM (0uuiT)

566 So, Horde, I'm trying to work out the kinks in a new rhetorical weapon. See what you think:

"Groups have reality, but not decision-making agency. That belongs solely to individuals."

Explanation: Due to a lack of power, human brains compress multitudes of individual items into groups. We do this with everything we encounter in life, but especially (and significantly) with other people.

Groups of people (leftists, terrorists, government, conservatives, etc) make for useful shorthands in communication and in thinking, but they are deeply misleading in a critical way: groups of people may write rules, but they do not, and cannot, make decisions. In every case, the decision to abide by the group's recommendations is necessarily left up to each individual.

A Simple illustration: even a terrible bureaucracy can be navigated with the help of a committed inside ally, and even the best bureaucracy can be closed to you by a flunky with a serious grudge.

Why does it matter, rhetorically speaking?

Because anytime someone says "we should do x" on Facebook, the phrase is meaningless. "We" can't "do" anything, because "we" is a group, and groups have no agency. Groups ARE, but they don't DO.


And that is why socialism doesn't work.



Fine-tuning suggestions are greatly appreciated...

586 After Obama explained why he won't use Radical Islam, I think I figured it out.

First, his reasons were not compelling, and I believe they are not the real reason. I think perhaps in the early days, we indeed had to be sensitive to Muslims, but now, its pretty clear to all.

I believe instead its to reduce the chance that American citizens take actions against Muslims.

Progressives are always more afraid of Americans than foreigners, and so they use euphemisms as to not rile up the lower class imbeciles who otherwise would burn the mosques down.

This reminds me of one of those glorious moments in MSM hubris. Way back in 2002, one of those news talk shows came up with a brain storm. They just KNEW that those stupid yokels in Jesusland were persecuting muslims they just needed video proof. So, they came up with the most racist place in America to do there little experiment. They would send two guys, dressed up as muslims (flowing robes, little hats, the works) and have them walk among the racist rable. They sent them to Martinsville VA to see the NASCAR race there. So these 2 guys show up, hidden camera in tow. Producers were just salivating at the idea of racist rednecks getting all violent and shit. What happened? Nothing. Nothing at all. Just NASCAR fans watching the race. They were treated respectfully and nothing else happened to them. Funny shit that was.

Been a while since I've been on NHL ice (as a guest/recreational player, not as a pro player, duh), but the surfaces I've been on were terrible.

617 Orlando gunman Omar Mateen's two trips to Saudi Arabia, one of which was a pricey package that included four-star accommodations and fancy meals, were highly unusual and may have been cover for terror training, according to experts.

The FBI is piecing together Mateen's radical Islam roots, and the trips to Saudi Arabia could be a sign of his growing religious devotion. His stated reason for both the 2011 and 2012 trips was umrah, a Muslim pilgrimage to the Kingdom that is not as significant as the hajj, a trip all Muslims must make to Mecca at least once in their lives. Either or both of the trips could also have included a side trip.

"It's very possible for someone to take a trip to a country like Saudi Arabia and declare it as their destination when it is in actuality just a pit stop to a different country like Yemen," said Ryan Mauro, national security analyst for Clarion Project, a New York-based research institute that tracks global terrorism. "Based on his blatant extremism and ties to a convicted Orlando imam known for facilitating international jihadists traveling, the strong likelihood is that these trips were not benign."

Layer by layer. Years ago, arenas would just flood the floor and turn on the chiller, that made the ice very unstable. Then it was discovered that the best way was to turn the chiller on, and the slowly layer the ice.

Another trick is to use filtered water, and keep the chiller at about 24 degrees. To cold, the ice becomes brittle, to warm it becomes slush.

When I was working for the local team, we would have everything down perfect. The temp was right, the thickness was spot on, and the building them was just right. At the morning skate, the players talked about the ice being perfect.

At 4pm when I came back for my pre game arena walk through, the rear doors to the building were wide open and all the hot air was pouring directly into the arena. That night, the ice would be slush and the arena staff would just shrug their shoulders and say sorry, but we were expecting a delivery and needed to leave the door open. They were too fucking lazy to open the door when the delivery got there, and then close it when the delivery was made. It had to be left open 3 hours before the delivery was scheduled.

628 Thanks, Harun.

It's too late at night for a full answer, but my response is that the boundary between individual and collective is a good deal more complicated than is commonly understood.

Basically, the same analogical hardwiring that lets us think in categories ("this is like that") lets us expand our own self-definition to the limits of our imagination.

So "my family" becomes an extension of myself, incorporating other people into my own self___. Seen this way, close-knit groups are not collectives at all, but rather mutually overlapping extensions of individual self-definition, if you will.

Self-interest makes the world go round, but the human definition of self is fungible. And that is the root of totalitarianism.

640 Progressives are always more afraid of Americans than foreigners, and so they use euphemisms as to not rile up the lower class imbeciles who otherwise would burn the mosques down.
Posted by: Harun at June 15, 2016 01:20 AM (dZQh7)

I think progressives know what a bunch of useless parasites they are, deep down, and they know they cannot always control their own base urges, so they just assume everyone else is just like them, only less enlightened.

Projection seems to be the name of their game.

They would love to murder Muslims wholesale because they are scared shitless of them, but instead they realize what a bunch of useless uncouth assholes that would make them, so they self-hate, but that can't possibly be right, because they are the smart ones, so it must be everybody else who are the uncouth assholes and in need of constant restraint.

None of it makes any sense, but there it is.

I, for one, am glad that most progressives hate firearms. I would hate to see them use them. They would show all the control and restraint to Mama Cass approaching a ham sandwich.

Do you know how badly screwed we actually are? I'll tell you.

USAA magazine arrived yesterday...with Michelle Obama on the cover. Blew my mind. This administration has been the biggest disaster our military has faced since Hitler. Talked to several people who had the same reaction I did..."WTF???"

They've been dropping hints lately that the current board is a lot more liberal than the last one. Not liking where this is headed.

649 So, no Mega winner again. Now the immediate post-tax payout is well over $100 million.

I found my weight was under 230 for the first time in I don't know how many years. I know the last time it was under 200 was in 1989 when I suffering from mononucleosis but had been misdiagnosed and I went into a depression so bad I was hospitalized. It wasn't until then somebody thought to check for mono even though I didn't have the usual sore throat. It wasn't the start of my depression problem but it was the incident that forced it to be acknowledged. Coming to terms with it years earlier might have made a big difference in my life but OTOH it has never been really successfully treated, so I don't know how much better things might have been.

One aspect of these periods is loss of appetite, thus the weight loss. Though this has been accompanied by such inactivity that the loss is probably as much muscle mass as fat.

Note: These aren't that quiet out of small .22s like an NAA. Out of a rifle, esp a suppressed rifle, you get into the "neighbors won't notice range".
