Tonight's ONT Is The Bee's Knees

Alright, I'm gonna stop taking suggestions from the peanut gallery on what to put in the ONT.

US Navy scuppers flawed Littoral Combat Ship fleet

I was never in the Navy, but from everything I've heard, those clitoral ships were a disaster from day one. Whose idea were they, why did they not get canceled years ago and how much money did building (and now replacing) them cost?


Guns. Lots Of Guns

The builder claims it's legal in the UK.

Racism

5 Arguments Against 'America Is a Racist Country'

Never been a big basketball fan, but I've always liked Charles Barkley. I like Sir Charles even more because he has the courage of his convictions to say this publicly.


Of course, he says “We want them to give us economic opportunity” which made me think of this column by our own Baldilocks. I don't know if what she says is true, but she's in a much better position to make that observation than I am. I do know that I have striven all my life to treat everyone equally (as in they are truly my equal), and while I will kneel before nobody, I will gladly stand shoulder to shoulder with anyone who demands the same, from themselves and from this country.

Lil' Help?

I've been using the Brave browser for a while now, and I like it quite a lot, however last night it started showing some (not all) websites in “dark” mode. Ace of Spades is fine, but Twitter, Home Depot and Nextdoor are dark. I double checked the settings > appearance tab, and it's set to light. I restarted both the browser and the computer, and it's still doing it. Can anyone help?

Also, to update, we will be making the move to Texas the last week of the month. Jim Sunk New Dawn, I sent you an email. (ETA I mean the end of next month. August.)


Why I Love Poland

They get it:

Did you know that the Polish flag is one of the most symbolic in the world? The red stands for the blood of Polish patriots. The white stands for the courage of the Polish people. And the blue stands for the loyalty of Poland's allies.

Since the City of Portland refuses to protect the courthouse, the City of Portland can f*ck right off.

29 Regarding the Navy's LSC - programs develop a momentum of their own, every military service will tell you that.


For those that exist I say dedicate them to ASW since they are essentially small frigates and that is the small frigate role.

115 Actually Littoral ships may have a use. Just not how they designed it. I think the design was meant more to put some shipyards back in business in strategic locales. (Cong. districts)

We are short on modern fast boats for inshore patrol with all the new bells and whistles in radar, sonar and tracking.

But by the time you load all that stuff on AND make it stealthy it's just too big to operate close in.

And what is the point of stealth for a boat? They produce a wake and are revealed in that way. It's not like a sub or even a jet which has all the sky to hide in.

All one needs to do is set a few pickets outside your sally port entrance and watch for wakes. That and netting will detect most ships quite easily. Radar is not needed. Especially with Satellite surveillance.

It was a payoff. And they should never have built as many as they did. But it was a good learning experience. We learned we need to get rid of some Admirals who've actually run a ship.

116 In regards to Baldilocks excellent blog on race relations:

I have discovered this over time, as a teacher or one that engages in conversation with another, it is largely pointless to try to explain or teach someone that has no interest in listening to anything you have to say.

I took a gig teaching people to bartend a few years back, and it has really shaped my perspective in a lot of ways. Some people I train are eager learners, most are attentive to the point of completion, and a handful over the years have had little desire to hear or learn anything.

Early on, I tended to give extra attention to those that struggled by trying to get them to pay attention and to work extra with them. But I gradually realized that it wasn't my extra effort that was lacking, it was theirs. Worse yet, I sacrificed time with those that were eager learners to focus on those that were not even trying.

I eventually settled on focusing my efforts on those I could help, and letting those that desired failure to fail. To teach those that were most adept and most interested everything I could and letting those that were destined to fail, fail.

I rarely got a complaint out of the failures because they knew why they failed. Intrinsically they knew they failed because they suck.

And that's kind of how it is with discussing politics. If someone has no desire to learn or become enlightened or accept logic and nuance, there is no point in talking to them. Just excuse yourself from the conversation unless you are relatively captive.

Just focus your limited energy on those that can be helped, those eager to learn. Too often we sacrifice limited resources on hopeless causes instead of throwing everything at the few that can be reached where success can be found.

I think Jesus discussed this so long ago when he said "Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you."

Bode Lang eviscerates Weinstein's logic in this video. It's long but it is packed with substantive evidence of the lie of "systemic racism" being solely the fault of Democrats.

One thing they taught in LMET, the 2 week course all Navy instructors take, is you need to lead off with a motivational statement.

EVERY LECTURE. You need them to understand and be motivated as to why they want to learn this.

When I took the course, it was an all Guy class... and my first lecture was on all the things you need to know before you go snow skiing for the first time.

Basic equipment. Binding setttings... that kind of thing.

And my motivational statement? Why they would want to learn this?

Well guys, once you get off the Bunny Hill, Fat Women don't ski.

Had 4 guys come up to me after class and ask if I was going skiing that weekend.

I wonder what it must feel like, though, to have spent so much time laser-focused on an adversary that is now, for better or worse, no longer there. He was engaged in battle with UNCW for so long that there had to be a massive let-down when it was all over. Not to mention that I think he truly enjoyed teaching (criminology, if I'm not mistaken). He was never going to get another university to hire him and he is/was still young. It puts me in mind of the concerns expressed re: Sundance in the previous thread. Could the loss of a cause been too much for him to process? I wish he had given himself more time for his future path to reveal itself.

A couple of years ago, I received a specially built piece of equipment on a job site. It was thirty feet long, six feet high and weight several tons. I also received a 120 page document in English and Spanish, listing the design history and usage of the equipment, force calculations for (as near as I could see) every single joint and weld on the piece. It described thread pitches, maximum loads, tolerances, safety factors.

It did not, however, tell me how to fucking install it properly.

These guys get so wrapped up in the math, so tunnel visioned into How Do I DO It Perfectly, that they never stand up and look out the window.

LOOK! Look how small I made the pump package! It's smaller than a shoebox! Good job. Only thing is, you better hope I never have to take the top off because it's put together with Allen keys and two of them are behind this pump body and I need a twelve inch 12mm Allen to fucking get in there.

*The Coast Guard always goes "feast or famine" when budget time comes around and the Deepwater program was to get them new ships after nearly forty years of no real new blue water cutters being built.

A Hauk can fire off about 4-8 medium range missiles and then is useless. Same for the Houbie.

The LCS, if it survives, can do other shit. Assuming the helo's are operational.

But then the dreaded Littoral Combat Ship became a "Thing", and suddenly it swemes that the only way you could get published in Proceedings was to type the word "Littoral" (which means "close to shore") at least a dozen times in each article.

It got so bad that eventually I just stopped reading what had been one of my favorite publications and canceled it. And thus my last connection to the Navy was severed.

264 Solar Cycle Science

The trough of the last solar cycle is behind us. The new sunspot shows reverse polarity, and solar activity is climbing slowly.

The bad news is the expected peak intensity at solar cycle max will be lower that the previous 2 cycles.

Think a pile 10 high, then a pile 5 high in 2009. The new pile will be 3 high. Insulate you home.

265 LOL. My family's been going to the same Chinese restaurant since I was a little kid. And we ALWAYS have the same waitress, for 25 years now, so we're very familiar. Wonderful lady, but her English is lacking.

We took the baby there for her first trip to a restaurant, and the lady wanted to know why her head was so big. Lady YD explained the problem and how it was going to be corrected soon.

This waitress stood there patiently listening and understanding perhaps a third of the words. After Lady YD finished, she said "Oh, I see... she have two brains. Wow!"

I laughed all the way home and am still laughing now.

Mom and I went to the farmers' market in our local city, which despite being heavily GOP has slapped down a draconian "you will wear masks in all public places or else!!!" order. The market is outdoors obviously, and it was hot today, so I got pissed and said "screw it, I'm not putting on a mask unless someone says something to me." So I went around unmasked the whole time; there were maybe a half-dozen others without one, but no one said anything to me or gave me dirty looks.

Felt liberating.

274 Trump cancels RNC convention - I'm okay with this actually.

Conventions for incumbent presidents are really sort of useless in today's tech age other than to rally, I suppose, the faithful, perhaps rub elbows with the connected, see delegates making an ass of themselves on national TV, etc. All you really need is a vote on an agreed upon platform, make a few speeches on TV and you're done.

The only thing important now is being able to campaign effectively and Covid-19 shut down by blue state governors are designed to prevent the Trump campaign from rally his troops there - that's really why Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania governors are enforcing them so vigorously right now. Biden's campaign cannot use rallies...or even press and donor mixers at this point, since their man is actually drooling into a dixie cup and isn't aware of anything accept he'd like the red Jello now, please nurse.

The protesters were demanding the Chicago Police Department be defunded. They also wantedjustice for 18-year-old activist Miracle Boyd, who was allegedly punched by a Chicago police officer last week as demonstrators and cops clashed near the Christopher Columbus statue in Grant Park.


They should take their mostly peaceful protest to the Miracle Mile. That'll teach the democrats to pander to criminal thugs.

* wry, knowing grin *

Decades ago, when Milady first traveled from Chicago to Oklahoma, she arrived in October. Every autumn, she remarks how good it was she arrived when the weather, and nature, was so beautiful. Had it been like right now, she might've hopped right onto the next train out.

July and August in Oklahoma, even up here in NE Okla, it is hot. Not suthren Texas hot, maybe, but hot. And muggy.

Welcome to your new normal, WeirdDave. May you never regret the move.

I can't guarantee this answer, but I'm betting it's probably because the Pacific is considerably colder than the Gulf of Mexico...

344 anyway, that brings me to my question - do you guys think Indians tend to be left-leaning (ultra liberal)?
*******

I have limited experience being a homemaker... In the Obama years, it was a foregone conclusion that all voted for him. They really saw it as Obama is for all the immigrants. The repubs are labeled as "anti-immigrant" so they won't vote for them.

In reality, they want the freedom (no pun intended) to marry according to their customs (i.e. family arranged marriage), then raise the kids here and push for very hard schooling, like the other Asian families. Education is the priority. Many have dual income high tech jobs here.

Are they socialist? Well, the Indian gov is more socialist than ours being that it is a child of Britain. But these families are super hard working. Many return home to family every year for an extended time. The kids are quite Americanized, but in the school system. Back in India, abortion is quite normalized, but family prized.

So it is a mixed bag... who knows..

Discussed above, but sadly appears to be true. He was found in his home after authorities were called to perform a wellness check.

417 CLUE: After I got the dishwasher, I had the water pressure regulator replaced and the pressure adjusted from 90 psi (high) to 60 (normal for a house). About a week after that, the dishwasher started its no-water cycles. I've reset it and tried different cycles. No washee.

Just the way God intended these things to be.

Posted by: redbanzai

=========

Another clue... which I'm not going to share with the KitchenAid repair person for fear they'll say I've voided the warranty....

I also had my faucet replaced. The faucet was screwed up, and of course the plumber mucked around with lines and whatever under the sink (hey, I posted about that -- remember? Hot water was squirting all over the kitchen floor).

But the dishwashwer worked for a few cycles after that if I'm not mistaken -- although I could be mistaken. And hte plumber came back out and looked under the sink and said everything was hooked up properly.

Oh I wish I was handy.

Anyway, KitchenAid repair is coming next week and it's under warranty. I don't want to tell them about anything other than the regulator.

By the way I mean the regulator for the whole house, not just the appliance. I agree, Miklos, it shouldn't be related. the shower, tub, other sinks aren't dribbling.

477 Well, I got the heavy-duty welding on my shop ramp done today. I made an extra stiffener for the middle out of 3X4 angle steel, and had to butt-weld two lengths together to get the size I needed. And it fit perfectly, too. I was pleased with that. But once I had it welded in, and walked on it, it seemed...springy.

So, I took two small off-cuts left over from making it up, and dug a small trench with a hand trowel right under the middle of the piece, and laid one offcut on the bottom of the trench, and jammed the other vertically between that and the stiffener rib, and welded it on place. Fixed that right up. Feels like concrete under foot, now. One little pillar in the right place.

And I got the wood for the decking. 2X8 pressure-treated spruce, 10-footers. $17 each! And lumber is in short supply. Many sawmills shut down due to

The appliances came with the house when I bought it 5 years ago. The oven ceased to work. Not a big deal since I do not do much baking. One nephew had a job delivering and installing appliances, so he brought over a used oven and took away my old one - free. My dishwasher had just quit. He looked it over and pronounced it dead, not worth fixing.

So for the past 3 1/2 years I have washed dishes by hand because - really? When the fridge or the used oven dies, then I will replace all of those appliances.


And considering I just spent beaucoup bucks to get the central air going, I am in no hurry to replace anything.

$12k through Costco's vendor, but with a $2k rebate that can only be spent at Costco.

506 Farmer, my sister was listening to talk radio when she came and told me just now. According to the radio, the guy was well known for holding up Trump signs in the neighborhood and had not gotten a lot of grief before because everyone liked him. But these days, holding up a Trump sign in a city will get you shot.

The WTMJ website has the story but very little information. No other local station even has the shooting on their website. I'm sure I'll hear more about it on talk radio (the Journal-Sentinel and TV stations will undoubtedly neglect to mention the "black Trump supporter" angle.

Horrible story. We have slipped a sprocket. When people have had concrete milkshakes thrown at their heads, been fired, and murdered simply for their political position, all within the span of a few months, it means we are entering a new paradigm.

557 anyway, that brings me to my question - do you guys think Indians tend to be left-leaning (ultra liberal)?

It's probably 80% hard left, maybe higher for the women. A lot are highly "educated" and buy into all the SJW nonsense they internalize at Ivy league/top tier schools just like highly educated white women. The older generation somehow internalized that republicans are racist and pass that onto their kids, too. Going to Indian gatherings is like a DNC meeting. In the 90s it was how awesome Clinton was, then how awful Bush was, then how awesome Obama is, and now how Trump is the worst thing ever. So basically like CNN on repeat. When I was a teenager I would argue with the "uncles" with facts but they would dismiss me as "too young to understand". My dad is hard left socialist and out right despises many racial groups including Jews and Asians. He's a typical democrat and seeing how dysfunctional my dad is turned me into a Moron more than anyone else.

She was shocked that when she showed up, instead of a happy intense group also excited to be able to write the book for a new class .... they were cynical, despondent, and dark, since the new class was ..... crap.

Different issues/problems, but US procurement - the F-35, and the LCS - thank gawd these things didn't happen during the Cold War.

My mom had one that lasted 30 years. They only changed it because the kitchen was getting completely remodeled for the second time around and that dishwasher was put in during the first new kitchen, and stayed with the first new kitchen the whole time. I'm pretty sure that was an American one made by hobart. Meanwhile, I went through 3 dishwashers in the last 27 years. The latest is a maytag that I put in 10 years ago or so. Its quiet and works really good. I don't want to say that too loud or else I might end up with dishwasher #4. lol

609 AOP - the racks have a thick coating on the wire - not sure sandblasting would work? I have puzzled over ways to do an expedient field repair, just to keep it going til some kind of system failure. For now, just minding weight distribution and placement of certain items suffice.

An appliance repair guy I had in to check the ovens gave me redundant advice about keeping it till it died.

I would think that there are *some* good new dishwashers, but like many, experience with several kinds of appliances in the last 10-15 years gives me a generally negative view, vs. things made decades ago.

624 Re: Strzock. There were hundreds of people involved in the multiyear domestic surveillance operation against candidate Trump, then President-elect Trump, then President Trump himself. I put them in four categories: 1. The true conspirators, who acted out of ideological zeal; 2. The easily fooled, who thought there actually were Russians to be found, in no small part because they were predisposed to believe the story; 3. The overly trusting, who believed there were Russians to be found because their chain of command told them so; and 4. The careerists, who knew the story was bogus, but went along with the operation because Hillary was going to win, and no one wanted to be on the wrong side, and then when she lost, went into full bureaucratic CYA mode.

Strzock was part of group #1, but if he's talking, it's to convince Durham that he was group #2.

648 Not a chance this is a new "normal". But that is little thanks to US institutions (incompetent and perhaps worse), the political class (self explanatory), a stunning % of the population.

Just how long the science-free, stupid, degrading vandalism of the economy and society will continue before it ends is not clear, however.

The school opening thing is really sort of a litmus test. The students - and teachers and staff - face no more "danger" than they do every year from flu. Most of these groups face, effectively, zero risk. Literally every closure, or restriction of any kind (including sports, room capacity - ANY of it) is indefensible, and obviously so.

And yet millions of students around the country may be kept out of school. Given the social and economic wreckage this will cause, the lack of a revolt of some kind here might tell us just how far gone the country is.

654 And it's getting worse.

Saw a jaw-dropping NPR headline (presumably from their website) - about Trump's EO regarding use of illegal alien census data for congressional apportionment. It is to "Protect White Power" - I'm not making this up.

And Frontline, a PBS vehicle, has a "conspiracy theory" episode coming - apparently with the ludicrous claim that Trump (of course!) has "mainstreamed" "conspiracy" theories.

I've pretty much concluded I will no longer be able to humor/shelter/manage so many clueless and misinformed - but not otherwise stupid - people I know, not after the last few months.

It's entirely predictable - they are where they are because they've never been thoughtful about things, never had experience outside a fairly narrow channel, and always been the captives of "mainstream media".

But the concrete, extreme, nearly universal nature of the 2 ongoing disasters - the evaporation of science/common sense/individual liberty, and the tornado of racist totalitarianism leveling the civic culture - may make it impossible to go on as before.

I actually saw a newscaster admit the truth a few days ago. He was saying everyone needs to wear a mask anytime they leave the house. The guy with him was challenging him just a little bit, and newscaster guy says, "It makes me feel better." meaning when others are wearing masks.

716 232 I was in the Navy for 4 years and thoroughly enjoyed reading the Naval Institute's magazine, which was called Proceedings. Enjoyed it so much I subscribed and read it for years after I left the service for law school in 1992.

But then the dreaded Littoral Combat Ship became a "Thing", and suddenly it swemes that the only way you could get published in Proceedings was to type the word "Littoral" (which means "close to shore") at least a dozen times in each article.

It got so bad that eventually I just stopped reading what had been one of my favorite publications and canceled it. And thus my last connection to the Navy was severed.

China was able to basically eradicate the disease with about 80,000 cases, about 5,000 deaths. Yes, there may be differences in the way we calculate, but rough figures we have are about four million cases now and about 140,000 deaths. This did not need to happen," Hart said.

And then received a call that she had tested positive a couple of days later.

Fauci is a big Nationals fan, and it was only fitting that he delivered the ceremonial pitch, as he continues to lead the United States during the coronavirus pandemic.


You say it's fitting. Fitting how, exactly? Like a good pair of undershorts? Like fine shoes? No, I wanna know - how is it fitting? Like a, a mask? Y'know, the ones we weren't supposed to buy or wear because "no need"? Or like the masks we all "need to wear now" because OMG WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE! 'Splain, yourself, "Doctor".

763 Fauci is seriously a very bad man.

Let 10 children die in AIDS test even after he knew deaths were to high.

Spent AIDS research money on parties and funding for AIDS testing, zero prevention.

Started WHUFLU testing when Obama shut down CDC testing for:
1. Losing antrax
2. Keeping live polio in wrong type lab
3. Continuously studying foreign viruses on US soil

So he contracted out the virus weaponization to Wuhan to get around Obamas orders.

________________

Put it in with the diswashing liquid (or pod or whatever you use). Around a 1/4 cup is plenty.

BTW, if you buy it at Lowes, you'll find it in the aisle that has paint and painting supplies (not in the cleaning supplies aisle).

827 TSP is good stuff in that you can mix it to required strength for the job. People have used it for degreasing engine parts and I tried it for removing cosmoline on a Mosin. It worked pretty well.

There are some websites out there on the internet that could provide the appropriate information.

I hear, anyway...

This site recommends 1/2 teaspoon of TSP per load. 1/4 tsp may do. Experiment.

TSP will absorb moisture and get chunky or hard over time, so you may want to bag it in plastic to slow that process.

As opposed to the improper lesbian sex methods?

If these women are too dumb to figure out how to have sex, they probably shouldn't be allowed out of the house. That level of stupidity is dangerous.

to say Fauci throws like a girl would be an insult to women everywhere. He throws like he has never thrown a ball before. Didn't this guy have plenty of notice? Isn't he supposed to be the details guy who plans ahead?
