The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"I hope it was an accident is the best I could tell you cause' otherwise that could've been devastating for a lot of people," Neighbor Dave Cox said


Quote II

When the dirtbag catspaws of the dirtbag Iranian mullahs surrounded the American embassy in Baghdad, American liberals were more excited than the old Weekly Standard’s staff would have been upon discovering that it was sharing one of its cruises with a pool boy and sexy gardener convention. Kurt Schlichter


Quote III

Killing Soleimani was just. But what is just is not always wise. Patrick J. Buchanan


Quote IV

"We cannot stop violent crime through policing alone. We must use both community-based interventions and an integrated crime-fighting strategy," Bernard "Jack" Young, Baltimore, MD Mayor


Quote V

The fact that I am an observant Jew and my gun has Nazi insignia is a stark reminder that a gun can be used for good or bad.

Sometimes you need to pick up your enemy’s sword and use it against him. Yehuda Remer


Quote VI

I think that California can serve as a great example for the rest of this countryFormer Mayor Michael Bloomberg

Beer volumes fell by 3% through November, data from Beer Canada show.

“Volume decline accelerated in 2019, down 3% through November.”

The new availability of a wide array of legal marijuana products has is beginning to take a bite out of beer consumption in Canada, reports Bloomberg News.

That's a big deal for a nation that prides itself in beer. What will Bob and Doug MacKenzie say?

First it was the "Impossible Burger". What's next, "Impossible Bacon"?

At last year’s CES, Impossible Foods interrupted the flow of really big TVs and AI-powered gadgets to introduce the second iteration of its impressively convincing, plant-based ground beef. This year, Impossible has taken aim at replacing pork with plant materials—and we got an early chance to taste it here at the show.

Like the Impossible Burger 2.0, the pork replacement relies on soy for its protein source as opposed to the wheat protein from the original burger product. Predictably, the new Impossible Pork also contains the iron-containing heme molecule that make’s Impossible’s meat taste like it came from an animal—it’s just in a smaller concentration. Coconut oil and sunflower oil help the pork sizzle and brown as it cooks.

Brilliant business strategist? Sleeping her way to the top? Or just the daughter of Bill and Hillary Clinton?

Clinton, the only child of former President Bill Clinton and the former Secretary, has served on IAC/InterActiveCorp, a media and internet investment company owns a stake in 150 major brands, such as Vimeo, Tinder, Angie’s List and Home Advisor.

She gets an annual $50,000 retainer and $250,000 worth of restricted IAC stock units, Barron’s reports.

“She reported owning $8.95 million worth of IAC stock to the Securities and Exchange Commission at the end of December,”

Climate change, just another word for arson.

Authorities in Australia have arrested close to 200 people for deliberately starting the bushfires that have devastated the country, yet the media and celebrities continue to blame “climate change” for the disaster.

The fires have caused at least 18 deaths, destroyed thousands of homes, millions of hectares of land and killed hundreds of millions of animals.

A total of 183 people have been arrested by police in Queensland, NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania for lighting bushfires over the last few months, figures obtained by news agency AAP show.

Something I didn't know, an Iraqi Consulate in Detroit. What's taking place there doesn't surprise me however.

The Iraqi Consulate in Detroit is facing backlash after announcing it would be holding a memorial for Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani.

The Michigan-based Consulate came under fire and even got the attention of the FBI after posting an announcement of the event honoring the Iranian military leader as well as Cmdr. Abu Mahdi Al-Mohandes, who were killed in a U.S. airstrike in Baghdad last week.

Sure climate has something to do. But it boils down to regulations and taxes. New IRS Data Reveals Winners & Losers Of Wealth Migration Across 50 States

Nearly 7.5 million people moved from one state to another in 2018, boosting the economies of some states while straining the finances of others.

The winners of the battle for people and their incomes included states like South Carolina, Arizona, Texas and Florida. Those findings are based on a Wirepoints’ analysis of the latest 2018 domestic migration data provided by the Internal Revenue Service.

The stakes are large. A growing population for the winners means an increasing tax base, economic growth and investment. And as baby boomers age and pressure to fund pensions increases, a growing workforce is a windfall.

The Rose Bowl, an American Institution. The Rose Bowl proudly lives up to its reputation.

B-2A “Death 11” over the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena.
On January 1, 2020, a U.S. Air Force B-2A Spirit performed the traditional Rose Parade flyover.

The aircraft, flying as DEATH11, launched with the spare Spirit using radio callsign DEATH 12 from Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, home of the 509th Bomb Wing, and was supported by a KC-10 tanker, c/s XTNDR30.

Our friend Mark Holtzman, a photographer and pilot, founder of West Coast Aerial Photography, a company specialising in aerial photography based in Los Angeles, was once again airborne over Pasadena in his Cessna 206 flying some 2,500 feet above the B-2 to take the traditional air-to-air images of the stealth bomber as it flew over the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, for the 106th Rose Bowl Game that pit the Big Ten Conference runner-up University of Wisconsin-Madison Badgers against the Pac-12 Conference champion University of Oregon Ducks.

You can see the great U.S.A. And have an unlimited supply of Oscar Meyer wieners.

Jan. 6 (UPI) -- Oscar Meyer announced it is seeking a new "hotdogger" to be in charge of taking the iconic Wienermobile across the country to promote the brand.

The company said in a job posting online that it is seeking a "hotdogger" to "travel the hot dog highways of America" with the Wienermobile and to act as a "traveling public relations firm."

Is it true, if they build, they will come? Toyota plans on building the city of the future.

LAS VEGAS (Reuters) – Toyota Motor Corp<7203.T> said on Monday it plans to build a prototype “city of the future” at the base of Japan’s Mt. Fuji, powered by hydrogen fuel cells and functioning as a laboratory for autonomous cars, “smart homes,” artificial intelligence and other technologies.

Toyota unveiled the plan at CES, the big technology industry show. The development, to be built at the site of a closed factory, will be called “Woven City” – a reference to Toyota’s start as a loom manufacturing company – and will serve as a home to full-time residents and researchers.

Cities are cities.

The ego of some people is just astounding. I wouldn't vote for him even if he had the Republican nomination. Let alone an Independent Party run.

Lincoln Chafee, who served as Rhode Island's Republican Senator from 1999 to 2007 (after serving as a Republican mayor in the highly Democratic city of Warwick for the previous six years), served as governor of Rhode Island from 2011 to 2015 as an independent, and ran for president in the 2016 cycle as a Democrat, on Wednesday will formally announce his intention to seek the Libertarian presidential nomination at an event at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

Chafee's campaign website says he intends to "Protect Our Freedoms" and "Tell The Truth" and promises that under a President Chafee we'll see "No More Wars. No More Reckless Spending."

The New Year hasn't started out well for the USPS.

As 2020 kicks off, the gift-giving season already feels like it was eons ago. But to the beleaguered and overextended United States Postal Service (USPS), the frantic pace of holiday shipping will continue well into January.

Thanks to increasingly generous, “no questions asked” returns policies by leading e-commerce sellers, an astounding one third of shipped packages will be returned to manufacturers. But the USPS, which is bleeding red ink and scheduled to run out of cash by 2024, collects little from this shipping bonanza due to opaque, deeply misguided pricing policies vis-à-vis thousands of major sellers. Absent significant reforms, gift receipts will continue to cost taxpayers and consumers dearly.

We all have that quirky great aunt who sends the strangest gifts or that ridiculously ugly sweater that doesn’t fit. Many of these gifts get returned via the USPS. Yet thanks to the prepaid return policies of most online sellers, consumers usually don’t have to bear any cost for returning those packages. But someone has to pay for the return service, which, after all, involves substantial labor and capital (i.e. mail trucks and scanners). That’s where e-commerce companies are supposed to kick in, paying the USPS for the return fare for either the entire journey or at least the first leg before the merchandise is handed off to a private delivery company.

Not so fast. Consumers are being left in the dark about how much leading e-commerce companies compensate the federal agency and if revenues are meeting costs. The actual formulas that lead the USPS to determine which shipping prices are reasonable to charge are a closely guarded secret. Observers trying to figure out how the agency goes about charging e-commerce companies will be greeted with thick redactions on Inspector General documents, to the point that they start to resemble the Mueller Report. But there are plenty of hints that something is seriously wrong with the way the USPS calculates its prices. In its recently released fiscal year (FY) 2019 Annual Compliance Report, the agency notes that revenue from mail items such as packages covers 23.4 percent of the agency’s “total institutional costs.”

The cost of business.

CHICAGO — Chicago police are investigating a burglary at MOCA Modern Cannabis, a legal dispensary selling both medicinal and recreational marijuana on the Northwest Side, after someone broke in overnight.

Police say “offenders” possibly used a key card to break through a side door of the cannabis shop on the 2800 block of West Fullerton Avenue in Logan Square before getting away with an undisclosed amount of money.

Customer after cash-carrying customer was turned away at the door Monday.

“I came by MOCA to buy some oil and some flower, but apparently they’re closed,” customer Paul Toledo said.

Some elected officials are calling for changes to banking regulations, saying they make these shops targets.

Because cannabis is still illegal on the federal level, most banks won’t risk doing business with the cannabis industry. So for now weed shops are all-cash.

I've never heard of this league, have you, The Professional Drinker League? Genius Award Winner.

A tipsy Florida Motorist whose blood alcohol content was measured at nearly three times the legal limit admitted consuming whiskey shots prior to driving, but assured cops, “I’m a professional drinker.”

George Emmanuel, 54, was collared late Wednesday evening after a sheriff’s deputy spotted his vehicle speeding in a 35 mph zone.

After being pulled over, Emmanuel--who was wobbly and had “watery and glassy” eyes--performed poorly on a series of field sobriety tests. Additionally, his blood alcohol contest was measured at .218 and .211 (.08 is the legal limit)

They didn't ask me, I would have contributed. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

The Walker family from Gilbert, Arizona, has a yearly tradition that many families who live in arid conditions share: At some point, generally around the holiday season, they make the trek to snow — wherever that may be.

While snow may be a necessary evil for many people, sometimes Christmas just doesn’t feel complete without a snow day. This year, though, the Walkers were cautioned against making the long drive to a higher elevation because of their 2-year-old, Quinn.

Quinn was born with a rare genetic disorder and only has the right side of her heart. She’s undergone surgeries and has another coming up in April, and doctors warned her family that the trip could prove too much for her.

“She looks completely healthy and normal.

78 I could be wrong, but I seem to remember a few days ago Iran claiming we secretly, via the Swiss allowed them a symbolic, harmless retaliation to save face, and scoffing. Yet today, they seem to have engaged in a harmless, face-saving, for-domestic-consumption (and democrats/msm) strike. I imagine we won't strike back.

Scout, Kitten of Mass Destruction, is finally taking a nap.

Have been on the road > 1 week and he hasn't let me out of sight all day.

Rescue kitten we got from the shelter Thanksgiving. Some evil fuck stick had smashed his tail with a hammer, distal half was amputated, the remaining bit is twisted like a cork screw. I hope he doesn't get arthritis pain when older but he probably will.

He's grey tabby with prominent black stripes, very camo, and rather deliberately investigates everything - everything - then it's Surprise, Speed and Violence of Action! Scout was a good name.

I had been without a cat for many years.

He's a treasure.

139 Thanks to increasingly generous, “no questions asked” returns policies by leading e-commerce sellers, an astounding one third of shipped packages will be returned to manufacturers. But the USPS, which is bleeding red ink and scheduled to run out of cash by 2024, collects little from this shipping bonanza due to opaque, deeply misguided pricing policies vis-à-vis thousands of major sellers. Absent significant reforms, gift receipts will continue to cost taxpayers and consumers dearly.

'Cause all the rest of the Board would be people like Bill Whittle, Victor Davis Hanson, Kim DuToit and Ace hisself.

I'd call it the Appointment of Torment and Re-Education. But mostly, Torment.

Can you imagine the carnage that'd occur in her skull? Information she'd *never* heard before, ideas she'd never even heard of, much less considered?

Most Boards meet on a Quarterly or Bi-Annual basis. Think she'd make a full year? Even make a 2nd meeting?

It'd be a hell of an experiment though, now wouldn't it?

I'm listening to MSNBC right now. I'm pretty sure they'll impute our unexpected survival to luck, someone switching the nuclear codes on Trump, the Democrats issuing strong enough warnings to him to scare him from further action, Trump calculating that he can avoid getting being convicted by the Senate if he plays nice with Iran, etc.

In short, they're right and Trump is awful no matter what happens.

PSA

I got a couple of old Windows 7 keys off of old broken laptops, bought a couple of old Thinkpads from ebay for $30 or so each, put $25 SSDs into each of them, and ran a Windows 10 installation from a USB thumb drive.

Put the old keys in from the old broken laptops at the required point in the installation and the "new" laptops activated fine. I was sort of surprised since both were OEM and I figured would be tied to hardware, but nope.

It's a good way to give someone a laptop if they need one. Those old i5 Thinkpads are still great machines, too.

302 DBCooper I will keep you in my prayers. Every one until I hear how it goes!

I had a foot of small bowel removed 10 years ago and 2 days to the date (1/22/2010). No bag, although they said they weren't sure about that until they went in.

They put me on Humira and the whole thing turned my life from a living hell into a pretty normal one. I've been in Crohn's remission for a decade (ulcer free) although I still surely suffer from the condition now and again.

If you want any post-surgery advice I'm full of it. They will have you up and walking and eating real food within 24 hours. The recovery is a bit of a bitch for the first two weeks - we use are stomach muscles for everything! - but gets significantly better week on week. Plus ten years of tech is a long time. Best of luck!!!!

officer that once swiped a CIWS round to keep as a souvenir.
Fortunately, he threw a party at his house for the division and the FCs
managed to remove it from where he had it proudly displayed...on the top
of his TV.

If it were me, I'd try a clean install of Win10 and not try the upgrade over Win 7 (or clone the latter and try the upgrade over the copy).

Use the Windows 7 product key. IIRC, that key won't work from the install, but it will work when you attempt to activate from a fresh Win10 install.

I did that, but using a Windows 8.1 key. Hell, at the time, I was still running XP-x64 as my main OS, but had Win7 and Win8 installs on the system. I then added a Win10 install (and this was after the official upgrade period was over), and used the Win 8.1 key to activate it.

On the aircraft it's a 575 round drum mag, the gun is belt fed so the brass just rotates back into the magazine. Not sure about the CIWS, I know it's belt fed as well so I'm guessing it rotates back in also. At least it is on aircraft carriers.

The ammunition handling system has two conveyor belt systems. The first takes the rounds out of the magazine drum to the gun; the second takes empty shells or non-fired rounds to the opposite end of the drum.

Regarding that weed store robbery in Illinois.

Wash state stores have iron bars on the windows. And usually at least half of the "bud tenders" (that's what they call themselves) are carrying.

Wash is still a shall-issue carry state. But Olympia, turning all Blue last election, is going to do their best to obliterate gun rights, so stay tuned.

That is fine, however, the issue is our press. Whereas the media in every other country would be supportive of their president in a war, by choice or by force, ours is going to be working for the Iranians.

Instead of doing stories about our glorious military and showing off the beautiful new Tehran parking lot they would be showing stories about ecological damage and injured civilians.

My son would bring home, in his seabag, spent cartridges as "gifts" for me - 20mm, 30mm and even a few 5 inch deck gun shells - those are about 3 feet long.

Apparently, he'd get pulled out of line every time and they cut off his locks to search his gear and give him shit. They're legal to transport that way but I imagine the bomb sniffing dogs lost their minds. He thought it funny.

There's a lot of talking about us not having to do that boots on the ground thing other than to guard the bases in surrounding countries. We just push buttons and people die miles away these days. I saw a map showing all our bases in the ME. It's impressive how well we have Iran surrounded.

Posted by: Ace's liver at January 08, 2020 12:08 AM (wGeit)

481 Waiting for specifics on actual events, but lots of rather bold assumptions at the moment underlying the idea that the Iranians "intentionally" missed the bases in Erbil and al-Asad.

Specifically that the missiles used had that sort of precision capability. We don't know the range/track error of any of the "misses" (assuming center of bases was the aimpoint).

Unlikely these were even possibly "intentional" misses, given the systems used. That is, they were far more likely typical error.

That 25% of the missiles failed in flight really suggests we're dealing with the usual simple Scud/V-2/variants - for which a substantial "miss" of targets this size would be normal.

In the latter part of the Iran-Iraq War, both sides uses Scud variants - the "war of the cities". But the "accuracy" was pretty much - "within a large city". Like the original V-2s. Nothing like targeting in the current sense.

Moving on from premises, pending further facts, it would be very, very unwise for the US *not* to respond strongly to this attack.

We dominate every rung of the "escalation ladder" - in fact Iran doesn't even have access to the top several rungs, at all.

Contrary to particularly idiotic nonsense coming from people with a platform, US response does not "unify" Iran in any meaningful way. *Nothing* will change the internal political dynamic in Iran in favor of the regime, *especially* attacks on anything connected to the IRGC or the regime.

As I droned on about earlier, the far more important threat to US assets and strategy comes from Iran-controlled proxies in Iraq. These can greatly restrict our freedom of action, weaken our ability to strengthen non-compromised Iraqi govt. assets, and are a far more important threat to our bases than any primitive long-range systems.

Because the White House didn't issue a press release about it. Like Congress, the press believes that Trump is required to run everything he does by them. That is how stupid our times have become.

Our response - and there should be one - should be a very heavy blow against Iranian assets in Iraq and Syria (as was our response recently, to the American killed at the base in Kirkuk). Israel pioneered this. The idiot enemy makes a failed or even partly successful attack.

You respond by hitting *your* priority target, that hurts him the most and helps you the most, regardless of relation to the attack on you.

It's a luxury of being in a spat with a vile and vicious but non-peer enemy.

Guide. Every time you walked away from the raft a guide would be nearby with a shotgun. Used to scare off the gigantic bears. Fortunately, they are interest in the King Salmon. Only one of those was hooked on the trip, they wouldn't hit. The hooked one was estimated at 35 pounds. On a 7 wt, it threw the fly after about 30 minutes.

Posted by: Bandersnatch at January 08, 2020 01:04 AM (gd9RK)


Patriots work, but you have to understand what "working" is in this context. Surface to air missiles don't normally hit the target. The typical intercept has the warhead going off near enough to the target to damage it so it no longer flies correctly and crashes. This is ideal for cruise missiles and aircraft.

But for ballistic missiles it may not matter much. If you're talking about an incoming missile like a SCUD that's not very accurate to start with, what you'll most likely do is damage it, at which point gravity takes over and the warhead still hits the city below. Thus all the confusion in the first gulf war where the military was saying the intercept rate was 100% but there were still people getting blown up. It's not like Hollywood - it's very rare for the interceptor to actually collide with the target and obliterate it.

If you're intercepting a missile with a small CEP it's probably worth doing because a successful intercept will cause it to miss and hit something relatively nearby. But if the target is a city... meh, probably not ever worth bothering with unless it's a nuke, and in that case you're trying to damage the warhead itself so it doesn't work properly.

679 Bander, as others have pointed out, ballistic missiles not considered among the threats our bases have been configured for. Don't believe we have ever had Patriots in Iraq since the start, in 2003.

And as I have droned on about twice already here today - facts remain to be fully revealed, but there's every possibility that the missiles used were the primitive sort Iran has had for many years, the kind used in the "war of the cities" in the Iran-Iraq War - which are not accurate at all. They are essentially area weapons, or disruption weapons, or - like the V-2 on which the were based - "terror" weapons, to be launched against large cities like London, Baghdad, or Tehran.

That's why I'm extremely dubious about the talk of "intentional" Iranian misses and 1,345-dimensional chess on Tehran's part, "saving face"*, etc.

Don't know the track/range error on the hits, vs. center points of al-Asad and Erbil bases. But I'll bet 500 quatloos these errors are typical for the type of missile used. These are small targets for systems of this type.

* "saving face" is irrelevant in so many different ways here - nobody that matters, including the bulk of the Iranian populace that opposes the regime, anybody in Iraq apart from a small sliver of the Shi'a community, or any of Iran's adversaries (basically all of the eastern Arab world) gives a damn about "face", and besides that, ineffectual attacks do precisely zip to "save face", even if one incorrectly injects the concept into the equation

Ladyl, it takes about 30-45 minutes, but I went into the Win10 security and privacy settings and turned off everything that allowed any application get into any of my stuff. (No, I don't want applications to be able to access my file system, or my photos, or my email, or my microphone, or my camera, or my ... and on and on.)

Stardock offers a $5 skin, Start10, that makes your start menu look like anything you like, that is easy to use and just superb.

You won't need a third-party anti-virus or firewall because Windows Defender is as good as anything on the market.

And then there's a ton of good free stuff for all the rest. Firefox, Libre Office, FreeFileSync, MediaMonkey are some of my favorites. (The new collection of built-in MS "apps" are real steaming heaps, and can't be de-installed. Leave it to MS to screw up a calculator and a picture viewer!)

716 not so, good point! Of course I've thought of that. But giving this 1,287-dimensional chess concept the time it merits, a few minutes, I have trouble seeing a deliberate "strategy" being an attack that *might* in fact kill Americans.

If the impacts were 20 miles off-target, OK. Actually have seen one video of al-Asad re-entry/impact, that was clearly not anything like 20 miles off.

I thing what the Soviets called the "correlation of forces" (so-otnosheniye sil) and what we call the basic dynamics of the situation make it immaterial whether we respond strongly - but I still think it's the smarter move.

As noted far above, against *our* priority targets, not the launch sites. We hit Iranian assets in eastern Syria recently in response to the Kirkuk missile attack. Something like that - but heavy, very heavy.

These targets are kind of ideal - nearly zero collateral damage risk, big, big value to the IRGC.

You'd have to know exactly what was launched. The SCUDs the Iraqis were using in 1991 were generally believed to have an accuracy "no better than half a mile". They also tended to break up when reentering the atmosphere. I think the Iranians are rolling their own, but the design is based on the same lineage.

Modern ballistic missiles are supposed to be accurate within ten meters or so.

730 Bander, yes - and I think I know when "impact" as a verb - outside the physics/mechanics context, denoting physical impact - actually started. The late 70s, early 80s.

Guvamint/public sector-speak. In fact I remember arguing with another young drone (Beltway bandit consulting environment) about it. I hated it. First time I saw it was in guvamint-consultant/guvamint-agency documents.

And publius that's quite interesting. But in the modern era, I think "impact" was not substituted for "affect" or "influence" until the time period I mention.

734 You'd have to know exactly what was launched. The SCUDs the Iraqis were using in 1991 were generally believed to have an accuracy "no better than half a mile". They also tended to break up when reentering the atmosphere. I think the Iranians are rolling their own, but the design is based on the same lineage.

Modern ballistic missiles are supposed to be accurate within ten meters or so.

735 Wikipedia says the missiles used against the Al-Asad air base were Fateh-313, which finished development in 2015. Probably less than 200m CEP. The US troops at the receiving end had fifteen minutes warning, so they had time to dig in.

The others were Qiam 1, which has a CEP of 10m. If it's as accurate as advertised they hit what they were aiming at.

736 Free associating (only wine and chocolate involved, nothing more interesting) from several recent topics, I remember now that in that long ago gig, there was an interesting German immigrant former intel guy who had a nifty idea.

Early 1980, Soviets had just invaded Afghanipakiranistan*.

As you can imagine, national security Beltway was going apeshit over every part of this, including the possibility the Soviets could drive on south to the Gulf, taking Iranian oil and menacing/shutting down the rest.

Idea was to take the German general staff study for invading Iran via the Zagros Mountains from the Caucasus region (where the Germans - well, one German - hoped/expected to be by 1943) as a template for what the Soviets might do.

The russkis had presumably captured a version of the plan, and everybody with common sense relied on German plans for such things, or at least used them as a starting point, so it was a brilliant idea.

* a stand-up comic lost to memory used this years back, and I've always liked it - funny, if not strictly accurate - "Afghanipakiranistan - I just lump them all together to make it easier, because they're all the same, and they all hate us"

Queen Charlotte Islands, north Vancouver Island in the mid-late summer has some prized kings. Some days, they aren't biting, though.

Alaska, the Kenai peninsula is good, the Kenai River in early June and mid-July for a couple of runs. Kenai is a fairly powerful river. You fly into Anchorage and drive an hour+ south.

About a half hour south of the Kenai is the Kasilof River, a much slower river. It drains from a big lake, there used to be a fish hatchery there, but gone now.

Little LCD and I were directed to the Kasilof by a local who now lives in the Seattle area. Had a great time, limited both days.

And there are the aluminum 26' twin outboard halibut boats that launch directly into the surf from a big wheel lift on shore. Then you head out for 3 to 10 miles.

The smaller halibut are better tasting.

Four days, two salmon and two halibut, and we took home 101 pounds net of all fillets, except for a couple of salmon sides. All the fillets were about a pound and a half, give or take, sealed using a seal a meal, and then deep frozen for a couple of days before being taken to a shipping place that packs the fish for your trip home.

I did every package sitting on a picnic table, and by the end, my back was killing me. But all that amazing fresh fish! Cleaned, sealed up, and deep frozen within hours of catching it.

The QC trip is more expensive, because you are flying in on a private float plane, and staying at a (usually very nice) private lodge. The Kenai / Kasilof trip is probably as low cost as it could be, (commercial flight into Anchorage and then a hotel or BanpersandB), without knowing a local to take you around.

Get a guide with a river sled, and your salmon trip will be a winner.

753 Yes, fracking is wonderful.


Just think, when America retakes California, and fracking starts there. It will be like old times. Except there won't be any off shore oil spills, like the Santa Barbara oil spill.

True story, in the mid 70's, my Geology teacher at Green River CC used to work for Union 76. Was a part of the team that told them to drill "there". He told us that if the well was even a few feet one way or another, there would have been no spill. It was a million to one shot, but by gum by golly, they hit that spot.

Hence, his new profession was a Geology teacher after the whole team was fired.

That event was the primary reason California went so anti-oil, to this day.

754 Aetius, in the late Soviet era, the "sabotage" phase, your framework was irrelevant. And it could be argued "they" would "gain" quite a bit by disrupting - radically - the entire Free World economy. Check the global dependence on Persian Gulf oil numbers for those days.

It was so alarming, even Jimmy Carter did something smart - the Carter Doctrine (who alive even remembers or understands that?) - we will treat any attempt by an outside power to gain control over the Gulf as an attack on our vital interests.

The Valdez spill was a mess because there was so damn much crude. And the water is cold up there, it congeals instead of thinning out. And IIRC, the water currents were slow, so disbursing it took a long time.

The birds and animals got the worst of it, and it was pretty bad. One time through the oil slick, and the animal was pretty much screwed. And dying baby ducks and baby seals, plus Hollywood, ratched up the noise. But it wasn't pretty.

But yeah, crude oil is a natural thing. Oil has been seeping into the seas for longer than man has been walking on two feet.

Homer, Alaska, is the end of the highway south from Anchorage. About 2 hours before that is the turn if you were going to Juneau. Nice two lane highway with good shoulders. Homer is about 4 hours by car, if you drive like a bat out of hell like I did.

Homer is a year around moorage, and a Coast Guard station is there, as well as private boats and fishing boats.

The scenery is amazing, across the bay is a mountain rising thousands of feet from the bay. The tides are extreme, and the town is essentially built on pilings and runs for blocks. And the seafood in one of the restaurants? Fresher than anything in the lower 48, and prepared by chefs who know their stuff.

Even though the behavior of the fishery (there, or anywhere) is not really completely understood, fishermen also got a big pay-day out of the spill. The hinkiness of all that was confirmed by someone very much the local expert on the exact topic.

Iraqi military bases are attacked - presence of Iraqis at both - and what does the "sovereign" "govt. of Iraq" do? Mailiki's a goner, but the question is whether Shi'a will continue to press their demands for an end to Iranian control and theft, in the streets and at the polling place.

So Trump didn't destroy the planet last night?

And Iran's best shot was a wet fart?


Well, what do you know.

Posted by: Village Idiot's Apprentice at January 08, 2020 06:03 AM (tT0V4)

841 So the Iranians shot down an Ukrainian 737-800. One built in 2016, recent good maintenance in the Ukraine, with one of their best crews aboard.

Iran is going to be an issue.

So the Maximum leader of Iran claims a number American dead in their strike, and is happy. And wants us to stop future attacks or Israel gets it from Hezbollah.

My strategic sense is this plea for peace will fail, and all 52 targets will be hit. The pacing is something to wonder at. Slow, to keep the pressure on, or a fast rush to get them all. I expect slow, at first.

My bet on targeting is still on the nuclear weapons infrastructure with a combination of GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB) and GBU-57A/B Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP).

The underground facilities are untouchable without these weapons. Well, we can easily close the openings with common weapons, but that delays the solution.

The MOP will be used first as the first deliveries will be with B-2s. Later, B-52 can use them. We don't have a lot of them. Makes sense not to waste them.

The MOAB needs a C-130, so that has to be after the air defenses are knocked out. We do not have a lot of these, either.

Yuhao Wang and Jielun Zhang were arrested on base about 30 minutes after they drove past a Navy master-at-arms, which brings to four the number of Chinese citizens arrested over the past 15 months for taking pictures of the Florida base.

If you are a kid i guess it is cool for immediate gratification. But it also shows how dysfunctional the populace of the DC area really is. Is there even snow on the ground there? If this were Minnesota, they would have to simply give up on public schools and home school everyone.

Last I checked Americans buy most of their wine from CA and I think the biggest importer is Australia. I am not going to get into quality here as no doubt France is top tier.

Texas Winter is Summer. They start early for good reason. Same with golf seasons, in Texas the off season is Summer at least for those of us that can't hack it anymore.

965 Ukraines embassy in Iran has appeared to delete a
statement suggesting technical problems were to blame for the crash of a
passenger jet near Tehran on Wednesday morning.

Got a feeling somebody, possibly a Iran State agent was involved in the crash.


Not sure what their end goal would be but here we are.

Oh and Iran is not allowing anyone access to the crash site but their people and they are refusing to hand over the black boxes from the plane.

I'm not sure what he might 'say' would add to the solemnity of the proceeding.

OTOH, since it's mostly hot air anyway ...

967 953 we'll see if theres evidence but A bomb in a passenger aircraft is definitely more inline with usual Iranian asymmetrical procedures.

975 I believe I recall many decades ago when NOVA went for this budgeting idea. It reminds me of a time when I saw some military types blowing off training ammo because if the didn't, it would not be in the budget next years.

Posted by: Quint


Who makes these brain dead rules? If you don't use it, big fucking deal. You still budget it for next year. Next year is next year.

And you carry over unused stuff. Just like vacation days. Why doesn't that fall under the same budgeting rules?

Everyone must take all their vacation days during the year or you don't get as many next year.

People would tell you to GFY and rightly so.

I am not disparaging the military in any way. Anyone who knows me knows I would not do that. But there is a governmental truism that always stood out to me. The idea is that in the private sector you are rewarded for coming in under budget, for saving money. In the government world, too often you are judged by the size of your budget. If you don't use it all one year, it gets cut back.

If it's any consolation, Iran probably murdered all those 137 "passengers" before they boarded the 737, which I believe was loaded with bombs.

986 The military is more than its budget, it is about readiness and effectiveness. I wouldn't have mentioned it if I were not there. The point was use it or lose it. These schools plan for Winter disasters so they use the off days to make the plan work, snow or not.

I doubt it was full of tourists. Probably Ukraine/European business people looking to do deals or Iranians trying to facilitate the same.

I hear they've been known to give peaceniks on bicycle tours several months of free lodging. Just tell them you are with an NGO called Citizens In Action and be sure to label all your gear with the abbreviation. It is recognized by people all over the world.
