Overnight Open Thread (2 Sep 2016)

Clinton claims she didn't know 'C' stood for 'classified' in emails. Actually, shouldn't the 'C' denote "Confidential"? Whatever. Just ridiculous how she went about handling classified material.

Worst Song Of All Time

tmi3rd posted this on the moron Facebook group. An oral history of "We Built This City," the worst song of all time. Now while I agree it is an awful song, but is it really the worst song of all time? What say you morons?

Traffic Deaths

Traffic deaths in 2015 climb by largest increase in decades. Maybe we shouldn't be handing out drivers licenses as IDs. I keed, I keed. I think it's a combination of many things and probably the greatest one not mentioned in the article is that people have too much faith in the protective devices their cars come with these days. They drive like they have NASCAR level of safety devices and drive like they are in a NASCAR race. Only they suck at it, they don't have a spotter, and they don't have a roll cage.

100 Years Of Ladies Shoes

Here ya go 'ettes. Haven't had a shoe discussion in awhile!

Terrorism

Good lord this is stupid. Half a million young Italians are about to receive free money to stay away from terrorism.

Socialism

Oh I really doubt this. The names will change but they'll still vote for it. South America has had enough of socialism.

Shotgunnin'

Cluster Bombs

Bummer. Why the last U.S. company making cluster bombs won't produce them anymore.

Misinformation

Weaponization of information key part of Russian military doctrine. It's also a key part of what the MSM and Democrats do. Their followers just lap it up.

Green Navy

Navy can't prove that green energy projects save money. That's because it does not. The cost of the biofuel used for the Great Green Fleet is a shell game where the true costs are hidden.

"A 5 percent blend should not even be called biofuel; it is petroleum fuel with an expensive additive," he said.

Assuming the current price of $1.60 per gallon ($500 pmt) for the 94.5 percent fraction of the latest biofuel blend, the 5.5 percent biofuel fraction cost $13.64 per gallon.

Grilling

Yummy. The science of grilling: how a grill gives steak its flavor.

8 "We Built This City" is not the worst song of all time. It's at least partially catchy.




'Rons, please pray for us. We have to make a heartbreaking decision about one of our cats. I think we're going to have to put her down. I've talked about her before. She has feline stomatitis. We've been treating her for a year, she's getting progressively worse. I thought a month ago we were at the end. The vet suggested a boost in her steroids, we agreed, it lasted no longer. I just can't have her suffer any longer.

OH! Cookie, cookie cookie starts with C!"

So the "C" on the documents simply meant that you have to read them while eating COOKIES!

13 Out: Higher Education - In: Higher Propaganda

Keeping students ignorant of the past makes them more susceptible to the influences of Progressive propaganda, while ginning up faux outrages and fear mongering insures that most students, even if exposed to actual history and philosophy, will stay within the Progressive fold.

All pop songs will wither under heavy rotation for two reasons.

They're all short, 3':30~3':50 on average.

Traffic deaths in 2015 climb by largest increase in decades. Maybe we shouldn't be handing out drivers licenses as IDs. I keed, I keed.



I sure as hell ain't kidding:

Last year Assembly Bill 60 was implemented, granting people in the country illegally the right to obtain driver's licenses in California.

An estimated 605,000 licenses were issued under the law last year, accounting for nearly half of all new licenses, according to the California DMV. Nearly 400,000 of the licenses were issued during the first six months.

Posted by: jim at September 02, 2016 10:05 PM (rnwV


Well, when you think about it "classified" has no intrinsic meaning of secrecy. It just means, in the context of information, that somebody has placed in a category of information. Could be "public", could be "top secret", could be "confidential".


Now, I think colloquially, it tends to be used as shorthand for "classified: Top Secret", but I don't expect the actual rules are so cavalier with definitions.

133 Squeaking of "green energy projects" - here in Oklahoma, a company delivered gas that had an overabundance of corn oil ethanol, causing a big recall, lists of dozens of affected stations in the news (including Tinker AFB), and who knows what kind of damage to unsuspecting motorists' vehicles.

The prices are always higher at the station where we fill up, because they have only unsubsidized non-ethanol gas, but at least I don't have to worry about too much high-fructose corn syrup in the tank. Um, unless they get a wrong delivery, I suppose.

This is tough, and I'm sorry. I've been there, and it's heartbreaking.

My best advice is crazy in a way: Ask your cat.

I've been amazed at how well animals face their departure from this world. When they're ready, they let us know. They also let the other cats know; this is what we in CasaHorse call "the talk." It's when one cat says goodbye to the other.

You know your cat, and you'll also be able to tell when she's really not with you any more. And if you're not sure, believe me - ask her.

The basic rules for handling classified (meaning sensitive in some manner related to our National interest) data have only been around for decades, and have been continuously revised to account for changes in technology. For example, what worked for a manual typewriter and carbon paper might not apply well to an networked computer. The people charged with security are very professional and serious, but they all know that a psychopath operating at the Clinton level can defeat the best data handling procedures they can create because they weave a large web of willing traitors that stand to benefit from the treason they commit.

187 The prices are always higher at the station where we fill up, because they have only unsubsidized non-ethanol gas, but at least I don't have to worry about too much high-fructose corn syrup in the tank. Um, unless they get a wrong delivery, I suppose.

I only put real gas in my car, during a trip to Texas in June, I asked my nephew where to find real gas. He said Texas passed a law requiring at least 10% ethanol in all gasoline a few years ago. ->- That was my shocked face at Texas doing such a thing to the oil industry!

After 750 ml of something that was 11.5% alcohol and 5 Labatt's Blue which are 5% alcohol, I'm able to comfortably sit in my extremely comfortable Lay_Z_Boy chair without too much discomfort in the periformis and glute muscles.



So ace can possibly post, relatively painfree, with just enough alcohol!!! A lot of alcohol...But still...I'm a problem solver.



And my experiment to see if alcohol would deaden pain and loosen up muscles was apparently a preliminary success.

228 The Eagles first three albums, when Bernie Leadon was a member, were great:

Eagles -- "Take It Easy", "Witchy Woman", "Peaceful Easy Feeling"
Desperado -- A Western-themed concept album with the hits "Desperado" and "Tequila Sunrise". There was a time in the late '70s when I was working a boring job where I'd run through each song in my head in order
On the Border -- "Already Gone", "Ol' '55" (written by Tom Waits) and "Best of My Love"
One of These Nights -- "OOTN", "Lyin' Eyes", "Take it to the Limit" and a instrumental piece I really like, "Journey of the Sorcerer", which would fit right in as a "Firefly" background piece of music:


http://tinyurl.com/pne5dkx


I still liked the band when Joe Walsh replaced Leadon, but not as much. It was almost the same thing with The Doobie Brothers, except that I really loved their early sound (first five albums) before Michael McDonald joined the band in late 1975 and the band's style radically changed.


Finally, yes, We Built this City is a horrible, horrible rock song. The worst pop song ever is probably "Afternoon Delight"

After she was cremated, I slipped her ashes down into a slit of earth that was gaping away from his headstone. The second one was a rescue dog that I adopted on my husband's birthday, which was only about 2 weeks after his death. I only went to the rescue event to donate money in my husband's name, but, the universe had other plans.

239 I got willowed in the last thread, but this is worth reposting:

The largest explosion at Cape Canaveral was Atlas-Centaur 5 in 1965, but that occurred just after liftoff.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHjeZ4VrKS8


The worst explosion of a rocket during a test fire before now was Atlas-Able in 1959, but that happened after ignition. The fuel line sprang a leak and things got out of control.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bctu_6wWMic


There was an incident in Brazil in 2003 where a solid rocket motor accidentally ignited and killed 21 people working on the pad. Then there was the famous Nedelin disaster in the USSR in 1960, which involved the second stage engines igniting and destroying the first stage, with dozens of people in the pad area.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nedelin_catastrophe


But I'm not aware of a rocket exploding while just sitting on the pad at about the T-8:00 mark in the countdown. This may be a first.

261 133 Squeaking of "green energy projects" - here in Oklahoma, a company delivered gas that had an overabundance of corn oil ethanol, causing a big recall, lists of dozens of affected stations in the news (including Tinker AFB), and who knows what kind of damage to unsuspecting motorists' vehicles.

The prices are always higher at the station where we fill up, because they have only unsubsidized non-ethanol gas, but at least I don't have to worry about too much high-fructose corn syrup in the tank. Um, unless they get a wrong delivery, I suppose.
Posted by: mindful webworker - fill 'er up at September 02, 2016 10:27 PM (5a8XA)


We had the same thing happen here a few years ago in the Norfolk/Virginia Beach/Chesapeake area. We don't have any non-booze gas available nearby, either.

If you have a newer (less than 10 year old) car, even if it's not flex-fuel, it shouldn't cause too much trouble because they all use the same computers and programming for the fuel injection and should be able to deal with the extra ethanol for a tank or so. It shouldn't eat up all the seals and stuff that quickly.

^^ This ^^ I was in a parking lot about 6-8 weeks ago when this white guy pulls up in a lime green convertible Camaro. He was playing the most vile rap music as loud as the stereo could go. He sat there with the top down until the filthy song ended.

The lyrics of his chosen ballad were:

Ima gonna ram my big Black cock up your ass till you scream

restated over and over again with different words for cock, ass, and scream. It was clearly a song about brutal rape.

There is, apparently, a version of the song without the ooga-chuggas, which is an OK pop tune. But it never got radio airplay.


Another personal bete noir in the musical genre: The Little Drummer Boy. The lyrics suck donkey dick. I have heard an instrumental version, and it's quite lovely. But come Christmas shoplifting season, all they ever play on the radio is one of the uncountable versions with the lame lyrics.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at September 02, 2016 10:52 PM (oqkO3)


The original version does not have the Ooga Chaka. In fact the first time I ever heard it is without the Ooga Chaka. I was a kid and it was used on Bobby's World.

350 Hey everybody.

I'm really, really unhappy and pissed with Amazon's grocery service, "Amazon Fresh" right now. I went ahead and ordered a 12-pack of Pepsi 1893 drinks a few days ago.

Just got the FedEx package... one of the cans of 1893 was BROKEN OPEN and had obviously thrown soda all over the other 11 cans, and saturated/destroyed the box. Also in the shipment was a battery tester; however I think the tester is okay as it is sealed in clear plastic.

Oh, and another SIX CANS were misshapen and looked like they were about to burst. So out of a dozen cans of soda, only 5 were usable.

I just wrote to Amazon and they're sending me another 12-pack free of charge; I don't even have to send anything back. Okay, let's see if they make it right, but I can't believe no one ever noticed something wrong with the original 12-pack. Geezaloo already.

Check out the Gladiator soundtrack. It's not really in the same category as Host of the Seraphim (a truly beautiful song), but Lisa Gerrard (of Dead Can Dance) did all the vocals for the soundtrack. I listen to it alot when studying or coding or just needing to chill without distractions. The opening song "The Wheat" is just beautiful, and "The Battle" is pumping (although, don't think there's any of her vocals in it, it's just Hanz Zimmer at his best).

I like Dead Can Dance alot, have for a couple decades now. "Yulunga" is one of my favorite songs...that woman has some PIPES!

In hindsight, it was weird that students at my high school would pick that song so often for so many events given that it was nearly a decade old at the time. Nevertheless, I found high school to be an overwhelmingly negative experience and the song itself at the time made the bullshit phrase, "These are the best times of your life!!1" that got bandied about constantly all that more painful.

But, yeah. Agreed with the circumstantial aspect.

Posted by: Splunge at September 02, 2016 11:29 PM (iMxBJ)


As much as I hate the song too, the lyric goes, "by the dark of the Moon I planted, but there came a killing frost", means the guy's crop failed because the frost killed the newly-emerged seedlings. And then, to top it off, the damned horse went AWOL.

Posted by: Blanco Basura at September 02, 2016 11:35 PM (T/cxb)



Last week, while working to repair/replace two more walls from termite damage, I decided to give that Little Ceaser's "Hot n' Ready" pepperoni pizza a try.

I figured, $5, and no hassle or wait, I'd risk it.

My report:

* True to their ad, it was hot, and the sale was without any delay whatsoever.

* Edible, albeit not-remarkable sauce.

* Not horrible toppings. (pepperoni)

* Industrial grade, common, forgettable cheese.

* Flavorless, dough-flavored crust.


All in all, only one small step above a school's cafeteria on pizza day.

But, it was hot, it was food, it was only $5.

I'll not buy 'em again for myself, but if I had to put a buncha food down for an event, cheaply, I'd load up the truck with 'em.

And I've yet to have ever sampled Chuck E Cheez's fare, and may it ever be so.

462 Bill, the pop music of the time (early 1980s) was one of the things that *got me through* high school. I actually really enjoyed a lot of what I heard.

And, I considered it a great comfort (still do) that Hall & Oates came out with a song as forward-minded as "Adult Education" during, no joke, my emotionally difficult senior year. ;-)

519 I watched bull riding for a while. At one point they did a small documentary on one of the bulls that almost no one could ride successfully. They interviewed the owners who make a lot of money off bulls that are good at bucking. They said they were going to retire him because they figured he'd kill someone sooner or later. However, I think retirement in bucking bull world means a life of boinking in order to produce more mean bulls.

On the same show they interviewed one of the riders who got his face broken up and had to eat through a straw for quite a while.

554 Jeff Weimer,

Technically, being in my mid-50s, to quote Roger Murtaugh, "I'm too old for this shit", but I actually kind-of like her music and videos. Did you know that the late Clarence Clemons' last performance (IIRC) in a music video was in her vid for "Edge of Glory".

In the last year or so I've come to really appreciate the music of the female singers and male crooners of the 30s - early 70s because a lot of them had really great voices with no need for something like Autotune.

While I know that there are "younger" people out there like Diana Krall, Harry Connick, Jr, Michael Buble and the late Amy Winehouse who can sing the old "standards", jazz and torch songs, I've often wondered if there are any modern pop or hip-hop artists who can handle those songs without artificial aids, so I was very happy to see that Stefani Germanotta (Gaga) can, and is moving in that direction.

Posted by: Dave at Buffalo Roam at September 02, 2016 11:45 PM (vT565)


I heard Michael Murphy perform many times during the 70s, mostly by accident. He went to the same junior high school that I did, and came back and performed for an assembly.

He gave a performance at Baylor and a girl invited me to see him.

I used to regularly go to Red River, New Mexico and he was inevitably performing.

Last few days, I have been making great progress on patching up a rusty '73 Super Beetle that I want to use as a cheap-on-fuel driver. Finished my structural welding on the body today, I did. Body was rusted right out at all four corners where it meets the floor pan. I cut pieces of steel to bridge the gaps, and welded them to both the body and floor pan. Inside the car and outside, all 4 corners, two layers. That "bolted on" body is now welded on, and will never come off the frame. Which is fine by me. I plan to use it until something expensive breaks, and then part it out, since it's really worth nothing.

Not "We Built This City". It's just a totally shitty song with bad music and worse lyrics (what there are, at least). A truly awful song. Luckily, it's easy to forget once it's no longer playing. But while it's playing ... pure torture.

I got a kick about how they used that in the "Mad Men" finale. Ol' Don gave up all his material goods and found spiritual redemption himself at some hippy/psych retreat place. Then the show ended with that hippy song being used in a commercial, which means he used his newfound "hippiness" to sell nutritionally useless, chemical laden beverages to the public.

Nothing against soda pop, I drink diet soda a lot, but I still wonder if the people who made that show understood that that hippy song's use in that commercial is a mockery of the hippy "we love the world" mentality. "Mad Men" was often clever enough that they probably realized they were doing that.

621 Bad pop songs?

Just look up the top 100 hits from 1973 to 1978 and throw a dart, you'll hit one

My personal choice for worst song ever that was a hit has to be Elton John's Philadelphia Freedom - Not only is Elton's tone whiney and the melody 70s variety show bad, the instrumentation sounds like they retrieved rejected backing tracks from the dumpster and had a chimpanzee remix them. To top it off, the song was about Billie Jean King signing with the Philadelphia Freedom team of a pro tennis league that went bust in a year.

Oh yeah, nerdygirl, I saw that finale last year, and they knew what they were doing.

Speaking of AMC shows (and because of your "nerdygirl" name), have you seen this season's three episodes of "Halt and Catch Fire"? I was working in tech in Silicon Valley in the 80s so this show's move this year to SF and the Penninsula, along with the discussion of the tech really takes me back. In this week's episode, one of the coders attends a wild party in SF held by the CEO of the company. Playing in the background was Bowie's "Absolute Beginners" from 1986, so I believe that's when the episode is set. Since this season's "arc" is about early BBS services and is pre-internet, the title of the song holds two meanings:

Could not agree with you more. The thing that got me through high school? Metal. Lots and lots of metal. The best part was that I was not a stereotypical headbanger so that threw the sheeple students for a loop. Rode the bus to school beginning and ending the day with Metallica, Slayer, Queensryche, G'n'R, among others.

ABS relies upon sensors, now usually on all four wheels, that sense the speed of wheel rotation. The ABS computer compares the speed of all four wheels, and acts to relieve brake pressure on any wheel it "sees" to stop turning. Without the sensors, the system is "blind".


You might be able to splice the wire, but a proper repair would entail replacing the sensor.

Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc at September 03, 2016 12:35 AM (ZxmMG)"
Many of Boston's songs do have a similar sound. Heck, listen to the "Walk On" medley from 1994's album of the same name (the fourth album) starting at about 2 minutes in, and you'll immediately recognize it as Boston:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VPivUJj8STIOTOH, the fifth album, 2002's Corporate America has a somewhat different sound, and even uses a female lead singer on a few songs.I liked Chicago's early jazz fusion stuff, probably because I played trombone in high school. Liked Tower of Power for the same reason.
Now, here's an interesting question for the group:Journey: Pre-Steve Perry, with-Steve Perry, or both?

674 You might be able to splice the wire, but a proper repair would entail replacing the sensor.>>>

Since I grew up without ABS when one of my cars had that problem I just cut the other side. Without the sensors the brakes revert back to being old timey brakes.

The ABS on my '97 failed in a weird fashion. It would spontaneously apply the brakes randomly. Quite disconcerting. I pulled the fuse out, and do without it. Truck still stops fine. But then I learned to drive in vehicles without ABS, and learned how to pump the pedal when stopping in slippery conditions.


But I would not recommend to someone I do not know, that they simply disable ABS, because I don't their driving experience, or that of any other family members that might use the vehicle.

I missed the first season of Mad Men, but my sister in law told me to watch it. Her father had been in advertising and she said that from what he told her it was just like that. She was studying art in college and wanted to be a commercial artist, which meant advertising. He talked her out of going into it.
And he told her that most men in advertising ended up alcoholics.

704 John, classified information goes as follows:
Confidential
Secret
Top Secret
Special Access Program.
None are for general dissemination. A communication labeled Confidential may only be Confidential because it mentions the name of a Classified project.
Secret may give more information of that Classified project, such that it could affect National Security.
Top Secret may have information that is so sensitive that not only do you not want an enemy having that information, you have to protect it from your own people to keep that information from becoming common knowledge.
Special Access Program is information that is only available to the heads of restricted government agencies, such as FBI, Homeland, President, Vice President, SoS, and Justice plus their direct deputies. In other words, only about forty or fifty people have access to this information. It is information so sensitive that it could take us to war, and lose us that war if foreign enemies have access to that information.
As far as Secret, Top Secret information goes, there are different levels. It is all base on YOUR NEED TO KNOW!

I recall the State inspector general's office had some trouble doing their investigation - because *they* lacked the proper clearances!


And I believe it's publicly known that completely non-cleared people - Hillary's legal team - had possession of lots of classified info. I believe these people are also the ones who reported certain mobile devices had disappeared (these devices clearly of potential interest to the security investigation).


Any one of the DOZENS of serious, systematic, willful violations of security laws and procedures that are known to have occurred, had they been committed by any normal person - or any GOP office-holder or aide - would have led to a media firestorm and legal hurricane resulting in arrests or resignations (and disappearance from public life) in a few weeks.

Pretty certain it's not a tooth, since she was at the vet less than 2 weeks ago for her shots, and a checkup. As for pooping, she spends the day outside, and poops on her own schedule, so I don't know when she last did it. Two-three days ago, I happened to see her do it, so if she is constipated, it's for 2 days at most.

738 AOP--obviously not common, but one of our dogs started ignoring his food this past winter. He's the emo of the pack, so at first we didn't think to much of it, but after a few days we got to worrying. Fortunately our vet was on the ball and noted Acute changes in electrolytes, diagnosed him with Addison's disease. If it's been a few days and is acting lazy, that might be it.

I'm in the see boat. Except with a small dog and one acre (with downed fence panels, so he walks around when he wants).
He has his own door, so comes and goes as he pleases. If he has a "spot" I wouldn't know where it is.

But I find that if I take him for a decent walk, he'll poop at least once somewhere along the line.

Now there's a weird song. Crazy teen girl with fantasy lovers. Neighbor boy peeks in her bedroom window and has the hots for her - shows up at her door "with evil on his mind." She takes him into the bedroom, and what? Somehow keeps him as a sex slave. Everyone thinks he's died.

Lots of teen boys would love to be some chick's sex slave, but sheesh, how could you possibly keep him in your bedroom with nobody knowing? Teen boys eat 3 times their weight in groceries every day.

778 That slave in the bedroom thing reminds of some movie I saw way back, likely in the late 70s. Some creepy teenaged boy either rapes and/or kills some girl. He lives with his mother, no father. She hides him by boarding up a room in the house, covering up the door, and making it look like a wall or shelves or something.

Anyway, there he lives in hiding for a while, when mama has to go to the hospital for some routine procedure. She dies there.

The house is sold, with junior still living in his secret room. He terrorizes the neighbors and the family living in the house.

I don't know if that was true across the board. Last week I watched 1941's "Mr. Mrs. Smith", a comedy starring Carole Lombard and Robert Montgomery. According to the IMDB trivia page for that film, she was a devoted Democrat, while Montgomery was a Republican. So of course, she would often go out to the parking lot during lunch and put a "Vote FDR" bumper sticker on Montgomery's car.Unfortunately, this was her second-to-last film, because in January, 1942, she, her mother, and 20 others were killed in a plane crash into a mountain near Las Vegas.

837 I was reading trivia about the Orions in that original pilot with Susan Oliver, which became "The Menagerie". They originally used Majel Barret as sort of test for the makeup, which was a difficult mess. But when they got the footage back, she looked normal colored not green.

What the hell. They tried 3 times, making the makeup a darker and darker shade of green, but nothing worked. She looked normal.

It turns out that they had specified she was supposed to be green in the instructions to the processing crew. They assumed that some idiot camerman had botched the setup, and so corrected the green color back to normal.

Yvonne Craig (Batgirl) was considered for the role, and did play an Orion slave girl in a later episode, "Whom Gods Destroy".

839 Every few years when my parents would take me to the local theme park I was allowed to buy a sovenier from any shop there.

This park specialized in atmosphere and character. And they had one shop that made the entire park exceptional.

The Magic Shoppe.

It wasn't very big, 20' x 8' or so. Counter, walls racked with Adams tricks - cups and balls, magic links, silk scarves, and a few crystal balls for effect. Plastic sick, ugg.

The clerks were required to know a few gags and some patter. Not entirely smooth parlor magic, but I was too short to complain, and besides, the room was literally magic.

I find the Harry Potter media still-borne, lame, and derivative, but I imagine those that are fans of that world are of the same mind, the same entranced experience of what i experienced the few times I opened the heavy wooden door and walked into The Magic Shoppe.

840 Slap, most wouldn't have anything to do with you if you couldn't speak in tongues. No offense to people who truly believe, but these guys were extreme. And to this day, I don't believe that many of them were Christians, as much as they were cultists. If you didn't believe in their version of Christianity, then you were either a heretic or a non-believer. Their test was whether or not you could speak in tongues. If you couldn't, you weren't one of them. If you could, you were a fellow traveler, and I mean that very deliberately.

848 Oh man. Susan Oliver describe shooting that scene. She said even before she began the dance, standing of to the soul, she knew Gene had tapped into something dark in man's subconscious -- you do things to green skinned woman you wouldn't otherwise dare do.

She was sweating so much under that makeup they had to keep applying it.

And they had to cut much of it -- too sexy for the censors, including one where she was whipped.

I wonder if that uncensored footage is still around somewhere. Probably not, or we'd have seen by now.

850 I was watching some outtakes from TOS and in the "Mudd's Women" episode, the hottie with the long dark hair wore a dress with a slit in the front. There's one scene where she does a seductive turn with her arms raised. In the outtake when she raised her arms and turned, one of her boobs popped out through that front slit. Needless to say, Shatner and the rest had ear to ear grins and she just smiles sheepily and pops the boob back in.

In the scene you see even Mr Spock grinning a little, they couldn't wipe the grin off his face from the outtake. Capt Kirk and McCoy of course needed no suppression of their delight.

For some reason Sulu wasn't in that scene

851 Here;s what they're *missing* right now on Red Eye...

They're debating whether or not you should be allowed a gun license if you have a "Pot License".

The bottom line comes down upon the gun seller, not the individual whose purchase involves a firearm.

The Gun Seller has to answer to the "higher authority", being the Federal Government.

Since weed is Illegal, Federally, no matter the laws in the state in which you reside?

The seller of the gun still must answer Federally.

Every goon organization in the country will preach their favorite ax to grind.


MADD will say it is because of drunken teenagers and we need to increase the drinking age to 99. IOW bring back prohibition which became their real goal several decades ago.


The Naderites will say it is because we absolutely must have more safety features including governors on the electronic ignition that limits speed to 55.


The watermelons will say it is because we removed the 55 mph speed limits on the interstates and we need to reinstate them.


Obama will say we need the 55 speed limit, electronic governors, and most of all, higher punitive federal taxes on gasoline so he can give more money to train and bus unions.


Meanwhile, has any independent non-government agency verified that these numbers are accurate?


The solutions, as always, shows what the "real problem is.

864 Good morning Skip! And the rest of the Horde...





I drank a lot of alcohol last night, went to bed while using one of the home versions of the muscle stimulation devices chiropractors use and woke up early.






I just messaged my pastor's wife in South Korea. When I broke my elbow about 5 years ago, she came every day, for 17 days in a row, to wash me up, including when her daughter had given birth to her 2nd grandchild.





I love that woman. And I miss my church.






Fortunately, I have figured out a way that may let me work independently, allow me to come back home and take care of my very elderly parents (ages 80 and 90) if needed, makes me happy and gives me a nice market for any kids books I'm going to write in the future. Oh, and mercilessly teasing Social Justice Warriors and western university indoctrinated students is part of my brand!!!



So it is all good.



I'm going to let the alcohol take over for a few minutes....but damn...I miss my Korean church. I was walking the streets in Pyeongtaek, South Korea after teaching English and heard what sounded like hymns coming from a building. I cautiously opened the door to investigate, they saw me and invited me in.





At that moment, I remembered Dennis Pragar saying "how can you tell you are not religious if you have never given it a chance?: I went in and the women in the choir welcomed me so graciously.





The women in the choir phoned Ashley who was 20 and she came to the church and translated for me that night, and at the next Mass. And for some reason I went back to church the next Sunday. And the next Sunday.



After a couple of Sundays, Lim Sun, the pastor's wife, gave me a beautiful English-Korean Bible. I offered her money. She refused. I put an extra 50,000 won ($50 US) in the donation plate.




Ashley went to school, but Suzi took over translation duties. Amazingly beautiful girl. So incredibly sweet, in high school and she looked a couple years younger than her 18 years. I remember one Sunday getting a text message on my phone from Suzi asking if I was going to be at church. Beautiful Korean girl. Even though nothing would ever happen, yeah, that was extra motivation to go to church.




After several weeks at my new church, I took Ashley, Suzi and a few other of the older kids to the movies and out for pizza. It was so much fun. I look younger than I am, they were comfortable around me and it was a very happy day. It amused me that as a white guy, I had all my wonderful memories taking my black god-daughter and her 3 sisters to the movies and somehow found the Asian equivalent. It was like I was collecting families from all races.




I kept putting about $20 in the collection envelopes each week. In October or November, I received a text message from Lim Sun, the pastor's wife. She brought over a brand new winter coat for me. I'm Canadian, wasn't dressing too heavily and I guess they thought I needed a coat. A COAT! A very nice, $200 dollar coat!! What kind of church does that!!??!??




So if people are keeping track, I'm donating back to the church everything they give me. And over the next few months, on the weeks I miss church, I put the $20 I'd give the previous week into the envelope with the current weeks donation. And after a few months, we're about tied...




And then, some of the church members see me on the street moving my items from my old apartment to the new apartment of my new employer. Phone calls were made. Soon, most of my small church was there helping me move and get settled into the new apartment.




And shortly thereafter, I ended up breaking my elbow in 2 places. My pastor's wife, Lim Sum, came to the hospital for 17 days in a row to wash me up, INCLUDING after her oldest daughter gave birth to her 2nd grandchild!! I love that woman....




Anyways, I was drinking, I've already messaged Lim Sun at church wishing her a great day and was just randomly typing after killing a bunch of beers.




For the record, I am able to sit comfortably in a chair now. However, that was after a LOT of alcohol

867 "Completely plausible that the rest of the cabinet positions are equally corrupt and inept."

Decades ago a white antique shop owner on Magazine in New Orleans, also a councilman, told me of his discussion with a black councilman. The black guy argued that city jobs were (my updated paraphrase) a designed device to spread the wealth around, largely to the black community. The white small business owner was more capitalist, thinking government was to be as efficient as possible. (silly him)

Lois Lerner told us it was just a couple rogue agents in Cincinnati, and all the subsequent lies that covered the trail all the way to the White House went unpunished, as only whistle blowers are fired.

Many bureaucrats feel they are righteous, others feel they are clever and America deserves to be fleeced. An Obama administration guy said "in the end it comes down to the barrel of a gun" ... so of course they want to take those soon, to make us as vulnerable as the European proles.

We are not dealing with patriotic Americans.

"If there was hope, it must lie in the proles.
If they could only somehow become conscious of their own strength.

Until they become conscious they will never rebel.
And until they rebel they will never become conscious."
