Overnight Open Thread (1-29-2015)

Quote of the Day

"It's not enough to punish men for things they haven't done. Women must be kept away from men, for their own good, because of the crimes those men haven't committed. This isn't happening in Saudi Arabia or some other third-world hellhole. This is happening right here. . . . All because of a fraudulent story in a pathetic, outdated music magazine."

-- Jim Treacher on national sororities ordering women in local chapters to avoid all fraternity events.

Reason.com: The American Sniper Was No Hero

And reason #12 why I'm not a Libertarian.

I believe it was Mark Steyn who once described Libertarianism as 9 pounds of delicious ice cream and 1 pound of feces mixed in a 10 lb container. And unfortunately that one pound of caca has a quality (and quantity) all its own that swamps the other flavors. Because the great turd in the Libertarian punchbowl has always been their foreign policy views which are functionally the same as the far Left's.

Now in theory there are all kinds of differences and distinctions between the two - but in practice most Libertarians have bought into the blame-America-first, war-never-solved-anything, the-world-will-leave-us-alone-if-we-leave-them-alone but-we-still-totally-support-the-troops views of the left. Which means that when you drill down to actual policies relating to actual foreign policy issues, the views of most Libertarians are simpatico with the views of ANSWER.

If you disagree, just go read this article (ignoring all the factual errors and omissions) and then ask yourself whether this article could have been comfortably published in say Mother Jones or the Guardian. That will tell where the real home of Libertarian foreign policy lies. (Thanks to BenK for the link)

If You Enjoyed that 1911 Animation...

You'll love World of Guns: Gun Disassembly which is available on Steam. It has 3D models of most guns along with RPGs and a few artillery pieces which you can disassemble/reassemble piece by piece. But what's really interesting about it is that the 3D models are functional ones as well so you can watch the guns fire and operate. And by slowing everything down 30x and making parts of the guns translucent, I've been able to follow the exact operation of all the guns' components in sequence which has been very educational.

They give you a few gun models for free but the rest you have to buy (usually $5 each). I decided to pay the blanket $55 fee to get all current models and all future ones.

Goodbye to Sullivan

Or why Andrew won't be missed. I used to be a Sullivan fan back in the 2000-2002 days but gave up on him when he started becoming wobbly (and dishonest about his wobblyness) before the 2004 election. In fact I think it was one of Ace's takedowns of Sullivan around then that first lured over to this here site.

But here's why Sullivan shouldn't ever be taken seriously by anyone - left or right: His great conceit is that Andrew Sullivan alone is what defines conservatism so wherever he's at politically, well that's what's conservatism is. Because Burke and Oakeshott. And Narcissism and Ego.

In 2008, Sullivan decided that he really liked Barack Obama a lot. But he didn't want to be identified as a contemporary American liberal, so he started concocting all sorts of ridiculous claims that the onetime senator and future president was and is a conservative. Hayek was cited, as was Locke, as was Oakeshott. Oakeshott was cited a lot. The claims, of course, made no sense whatsoever, but that didn't stop Sullivan from making them, even as the rhetoric and policies from the White House became more and more port-sided. Of course, Sullivan could have taken the honorable road and simply announced a fundamental shift in his political philosophy. But instead, Sullivan, like Shakespeare's Caesar, claimed and claims to be as constant as the North Star when it comes to his ideology, and his approach instead has been to desperately try to shoehorn Barack Obama into that ideology. It never worked before, it doesn't work now, and it won't work in the future, but Sullivan, not recognizing defeat when it stares him in the face, keeps on trying to make it work. The whole thing is rather pathetic, really.

Lessons From China's Pickup Artists

For guys in a gender-imbalanced society like modern China it's either step up their game or become genetic dead-ends.

Feng's courses are about building general confidence rather than memorising tricks to fool girls into having sex. "Many boys I teach have absolutely no experience in dating," he says. "I simply teach them how to talk to them, from the first sentence to the second and so on."

...But in the main his advice seems painfully obvious and more about making students more generally sociable than getting laid. "I teach about body language," he says, moving himself around one of his students assertively to demonstrate. "Which angles to stand at, how to invite girls into your personal space to share a drink. I tell them to see something like a girl's hat and use it as a start point for communication."
But confidence is one thing none of the students seem to be lacking as we head further into the mall from our coffee shop meeting point. Feng has clearly invited his star students along to show off today and promote him but still, their utter lack of embarrassment is impressive. They scrub up well and have immaculately-sculpted haircuts, but none of them will be doing any modeling soon.

After Mo gets shot down by the girl he follows on the escalator William struts towards a pretty girl eyeing up a designer handbag display. He returns less than a minute later with a grin and a new contact in his iPhone. "I just said, 'I want to meet you, you look really interesting, can I have your WeChat details please?'" he says.

Note that all of the techniques taught by Feng apply just as much to guys in the U.S. looking to improve their game.

Thought question: Why do guys universally experience so much anxiety and the fight-or-flight response when approaching a woman they don't know? They're in absolutely no physical danger from her and the worst thing that she could do would be to reject their attentions. I'll tell you the answer later in the ONT.

All About the Kingston Brass Pull Down Kitchen Faucets

5. Misconception:
Faucets were bred to fight bears for sport in the seventeenth century.

Truth:
While bears and faucets may have limited interactions in the wild, bears and modern domestic faucets have no inherent animosity.

4. Misconception:
Pull-Down faucets were present in the Garden of Eden and contributed to the fall of man.

Truth:
There is no evidence in any ancient scripture that the serpent of Eden was made of either polished chrome or satin nickel.

3. Misconception:
Kingston Brass Single Handle Sprayer Faucets were responsible for the much-publicized 2005 break-up of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston.

Truth:
After nearly five years of marriage, Aniston and Pitt divorced citing irreconcilable differences. The involvement of any faucets is deemed to be purely platonic.

2. Misconception:
If you run water backwards through a Kingston Brass faucet, it will summon Grannus, Celtic god of springs, who will curse you with a plague.

Truth:
This is only true of our competitors' fixtures.

1. Misconception:
The Kingston Brass Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet was the inspiration for the 1977 science fiction horror film Demon Seed.

Truth:
This has actually been neither confirmed nor fully disproved.

Well #2 alone is enough to convince me to accept no substitutes.

Something Something About Anuses in South America

Look I don't speak Mexican so as best as I can make out from this article rich South American women are apparently replacing their tired old bungholes with fresh anus transplants from young children.  And lest perfectly good organs get wasted the old anuses are turned into delicious candied delicacies available at high end confectioners. So it's win-win for everyone. (Thanks to Tammy who's clearly up on all anal-related news)

14 From one of my later comments from the prior thread. About how the left ends up eating itself as it always does:

HR Director: "Wendy - we are both womyn, but everyone kicks in three bucks a month to the office kitchen fund. It isn't a big deal."


"You traitorous running dog to the patriarchal masters! Contributing money to this kitchen fund is just masking the over-arching power of the patriarchy and you are complicit with it!"

HR Dir.: "No Sweet-and-Low for you, then"

"Once more you are indulging in the stereotypes of womyn having to watch what they eat so they keep a figure pleasing to the patriarchy!"


"No, if you don't contribute..."


"No forced contribution like the forcing of womyn to bear the war-childs of the patriarchy! This is rape! Kitchen funds are rape! Sweet-and-Low is rape! Everything in this place is rape!"


Yes, I do look forward to the next round of the left, nearing the crest of the wave, devouring itself.

Which would be patriarchal-enforced rape of the most sexually degrading kind.

23 Here's just one paragraph from that awful Reason article:

"Let's recall some facts, which perhaps Eastwood thought were too obvious to need mention: Kyle was part of an invasion force: Americans went to Iraq. Iraq did not invade America or attack Americans. Dictator Saddam Hussein never even threatened to attack Americans. Contrary to what the George W. Bush administration suggested, Iraq had nothing to do with the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Before Americans invaded Iraq, al-Qaeda was not there. Nor was it in Syria, Yemen, and Libya."

At least half a dozen big lies right in that nonsense mess.

And Steyn (or whomever it was) defined the big "L" libertarianism perfectly.

33 I've been playing around on twitter a fair bit lately.
It's really hard to have any sort of conversation, given the constraints, but there's a lot of potential for trolling and mobying.

In fact, it's perfect for mobying. This week several NRO types did some Palin and Huckabee bashing. CW Cooke was one. He then complained about all the Palin cultists attacking him. Thing is, I looked at several of them and was convinced they were mobys. Very effective mobys. They swore their allegiance to Palin and viciously attacked Cooke and others, which had the intended effect of increasing hatred of Palin.

We could do that to the people we hate. And it's kinda fun.

You can have as many accounts as you want. And you can used software like TweetDeck to manage multiple accounts, easy to switch back and forth.

So create the most batshit insane SJW account and attack moderate Dems and Libs for every PC speech infraction.

Or create a proud open Communist account who's ecstatic about Obama and the final destruction of capitalism.

Twitter is perfect for moby accounts.

37 TX Judge Refuses to Toss Rick Perry Indictment

The biggest mistake this country ever made was not to arrest the Supreme Court justices in the majority for "Roe v Wade".

When they concocted a "penumbra" of the Constitution, they arrogated to themselves the right to define that penumbra. They became legislators. They attempted a coup against the Congress, and called out the President.

Eisenhower, in not challenging this ruling, revealed himself as a Stalinist. He'd fight Nazis; but he wouldn't fight a domestic insurrection, not if its cause was righteous in his own eyes.

46 In RE: The World Leaving Us Alone.

The early American Republic under its first governments ran into the problem that the world would not leave us alone no matter how much the USA wanted the world to do that. From Revolutionary France to the Barbary Pirates to Jefferson's Embargo the world would not leave the USA alone because the USA was part of the world.

Quasi-War to Full War, the early USA was fighting people because - get this - they wanted a fight to get their way, and their way meant we do what they say, when they say it, and that will be so much - and in specie, mind you. Or in supplies-in-kind.

But it always was 'you pay us' and so it went and so it goes, as it has always gone because we are all in the same world and we are dealing with humans. And humans are all the same - they all follow their perceived interests and the vices.

61 >>>Libertarians are liberals who lean Right.

Big L libertarians for sure. I don't really have a political party that represents me, I guess. I'm on board with most of the libertarian agenda, right until we reach the nearest coastline or border.

I just want to be left the fuck alone, with as much of my paycheck intact as possible. Any activity that doesn't actively harm me I don't give a wet dart about. Anyone that threatens me or mine should be swiftly destroyed. That applies to common street criminals and enemy nation states equally.

Similarly, if you break into my house, you'll get shot, stabbed or bludgeoned. Same principle applies to my country. Enter without my permission, leave on a gurney.

Ugh. Enough politics, I'm gonna get drunk.

Where, precisely, should the borders start when you have actors like the 9/11 Al Quaeda types who are not acting for a state? At least not acting for a state as we traditionally know a state? Or acting from an area, a base, where no state has any kind of control that one would expect from a state?

How do you deal with these stateless nomadic tribes that plunder and rule through areas that are - on the map - part of a state when that state cannot actually rule those areas?

This is Kipling's World, and it involves a solution from that world. It is the world as it has not existed for over a hundred years. Welcome to the reality that everyone understood, and everyone in the west forgot when the Great 19th century Empires got their thing on.

105 And reason #12 why I'm not a Libertarian.

I think the Founding Fathers had it generally right. Which would make me libertarian but for the fact that modern 'libertarians' seem to feel this need to carve out a place in their philosophy for atheists. Which, say whatever you want about people's right to believe nothing if they choose, makes the concept of "God-given" rights (or obligations or prerogatives) immediately implode along with the will to actually defend them.

Atheists are not the only problem, many seem to think you can believe in any God you want and still believe in God-given rights, but I can think of no one other than a Christian or Jew who would honestly believe that as no one else's culture has accepted those ideas (the whole notion of human rights has largely been watered down to at best "don't be mean to us"). Maybe some other folk find the consequences of that world view appealing, but I don't know that I'd trust anyone who wasn't secure in their place in eternity having my back to the death if the time comes.

Having made that observation and noting that modern 'libertarians' are therefore not the Founders' progeny, I found myself more critical of their other positions, and without reading the linked article, the flaw in their foreign policy views are pretty obvious. Namely, only Americans actually believe this stuff, and the whole reason we have "America" is our mutual agreement to look out for each other. Which necessarily means we give preference to the interests of our people over foreigners. And we do whatever is necessary to keep the rest of the world's madness at bay.

TX Judge Refuses to Toss Rick Perry Indictment



The biggest mistake this country ever made was not to arrest the Supreme Court justices in the majority for "Roe v Wade".



When they concocted a "penumbra" of the Constitution, they arrogated
to themselves the right to define that penumbra. They became
legislators. They attempted a coup against the Congress, and called out
the President.



Eisenhower, in not challenging this ruling, revealed himself as a
Stalinist. He'd fight Nazis; but he wouldn't fight a domestic
insurrection, not if its cause was righteous in his own eyes.

Most of them seem to curl up into little balls when challenged and don't have the cover of the crowd.

What might remove their smug attitude is to treat them like any other herd. Look for those who wander a little and pick them off, or go for the leader and stir confusion and panic among the rest.

What it comes down to is that a lot of libertarians have a bug up their ass not so much about government as about the American government.

I don't like saying that, because I'm on the libertarian side of the conservative spectrum--but if we're opposing a brutal foreign dictatorship, if we're opposing ones that have threatened us (I'm talking about Iraq here, but foreign dictators in general) and you don't root for the U.S., but find yourself making excuses for the other side, you don't have a principled anti-government stance.

Describing people as parasites isn't the best formulation of a response in a debate with a libertarian as you know and mostly likely don't care.

The problem is that under libertarianism and under the flat version of socialism, cultures and people are interchangeable units and environments. None better than another, all just watch parts that work no matter what.

143 The biggest mistake this country ever made was not to arrest the Supreme Court justices in the majority for "Roe v Wade".

When they concocted a "penumbra" of the Constitution, they arrogated to themselves the right to define that penumbra. They became legislators. They attempted a coup against the Congress, and called out the President.

Eisenhower, in not challenging this ruling, revealed himself as a Stalinist. He'd fight Nazis; but he wouldn't fight a domestic insurrection, not if its cause was righteous in his own eyes.

Posted by: boulder terlit hobo at January 29, 2015 10:29 PM (AVEe1)


Wow. In one post, you managed to incorporate so much specious reasoning that I will never be able to take anything you write at face value again.

It's not because I love Roe v. Wade; I don't.

But your fixation on the word "penumbra", which was just a rhetorical device employed by one justice and merely intended to describe normal judicial interpretative activity, is the first warning sign. Plus, it was used in Griswold v. Connecticut and not Roe v. Wade.

And your indictment of zombie Eisenhower (who at the time of Roe v. Wade had been dead for four years), is just the icing on this cake of wacky.

If this was Friday I would be more sympathetic (end of the week, WooHoo and all), but you're not supposed to be this far off base on a Thursday night.

District Judge Bert Richardson, the judge in Perry's case...was appointed a District Court Judge in 1999.

Who was governor in 1999? ...GW Bush.

Now, that was a different District Court than the one he now presides over.
And Richardson was elected last year to his current judicial position.

But still, the tie to Bush is...interesting.

167 I agree that Libertarian foreign policy is the biggest stumbling block to integrating them into a broader Tea Party/limited government conservative movement. Blaming America first, anti-"imperialism," conspiracy theories and antisemitism are their shared pathologies with the Left.

Saddam had plenty of WMD (chemical) post-1991.....because everybody does. Most water-treatment systems use chlorine and many pesticides are so closely related to war gasses that chemists must "lean-on" the reactions to keep them from going the wrong way (e.g. "while you're making diazanon, you have to keep the reaction cooler than -15 degrees C, 'cause you'll make sarin at room temperature" [fictitious example]). And they've been discovering and blowing-up stuff ever since the invasion. But it doesn't make you a libtard to believe otherwise....it just makes you uninformed.

In Great Britain, however, Tony Blair used is more intensely. As is their wont, the US Media frequently apes what is "hot"in the UK. So as Tony Baloney in the UK caught a lot of heat over those "nonexistent" WMD's (of which there was actually quite a bit), through cognitive transferrence, the US took up the bit in their mouths and ran with it.

233 Bush shouldn't have even discussed WMDs, just built up the force, issued
press release on the cease fire violations, and attacked.


WMDs were never that important to the argument. There were a dozen other reasons regarding Saddam's behavior (from the assassination attempt on his father to firing on our planes in the no-fly zone in violation of the cease-fire agreement) any one of which was justification for violently ending him. WMDs only came up because Tony Blair desperately wanted another UN resolution (that I don't think he got because everyone knew the war was on anyway), and that was the case the UN was thought to want to hear. But because there were no mobile weapons labs (and despite all the tons and tons of actual WMDs) "We were lied into war". And the re-war in Iraq's opponents simply ignored all the rest.

Just like there are pro defense Libertarians... who while we do not like the current micro intervention policies of trying to fix every other country.... believes in the Total War doctrine if you attack us.

Just like there are pro LIFE Libertarians, like myself, because if we grant that Human have Natural Rights... then that fetus who IS alive, has the same God Given Right to Life Liberty and the Persuit of Happiness I have...

I can't really give the exact reason for the term "neocon," but I can tell you exactly why the Left loves to say that certain Republicans are Neocons:

Because, simply, it's a substitute for neo-nazi. When Dumb People hear neocon, they hear neo-nazi. Anything "neo" is associated with neo-nazi, and the Left knows this.

Here's the problem: The vast majority of "libertarians" aren't.

Most are just libertine about one thing or another, chief of which is marijuana. Hell, I think that most of those pot heads would've join the Khmer Rouge because their leader was Pol Pot.

Another problem is that they tend to be stalking horses of the Left. For example, gay marriage. They claim that private businesses should be foreclose to not serve gay weddings, but that the government must marry gays. Then when we get gay marriage, they'll claim that their either "feel" out pain but won't lift a finger for H8rz, or alternatively declare that discrimination is against the law and that law should apply to everyone.

Further, libertarians have something major in common with the left: They believe in a great boogie-man, which when vanquished will result in some type of utopia.

I, again, recommend James FitzJames Stephens' "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity" which was written in response to John Stewart Mills' "On Liberty" (Stephens was a contemporary of Mills).

Reminds me of an old joke.

A guy is going out and getting drunk every night. He then routinely comes home and throws up in the kitchen sink. His wife tells him, "One night you're going to come in and literally throw your guts up."

Finally, his wife becomes fed up with it, and decides to teach him a lesson. One night while he is out she dumps a mass of chicken guts in the sink.

Sure enough, her husband comes staggering home, struggles to the kitchen sink and barfs. As he finishes, he sees the stuff in the sink and screams, "My god, Martha you were right, I've thrown up my guts"!

"You idiot", says his wife, and yanks his head up by the hair so that he can see out of the kitchen window. Visible across town there is a brightly lit distillery. "Look!", she says, "They are are making it faster than you can possibly drink it!"

The bleary husband manages to focus on the distant distillery and says, "Yeah..., but I got 'em working nights."

300 Part of the neo-con war-mongering slur is the claim that it's being driven by Jews who have somehow taken over America's foreign policy and use it to defend Israel's interest, which hurting America's.

This usage of the neo-con comes both from the Left and the Right - sometimes from self-decribed paleo-cons.

In that world, Bush is just a useful idiot who gets led around by tricksy Joos writing NRO or The Weekly Standard. They never could explain how Cheney's might war-cock fit in since he was portrayed as the tricksy evil brain behind everything, yet obviously was not Jewish. But they just glossed over that plot hole.

Irving Kristol is the godfather of neo-conservatism
-- and father of William Kriston of the Weekly Standard and regular FoxNews guest.

His life is where a lot of this comes from. He was a Brooklyn Jew and a Trotskyite who recoiled from the hard-Left of the Democrats in the 60s and became a conservative.

Duh. Iraq was the flagship of the S.S. Arab. Turning Iraq around would show all of the Arab nations that they don't have to be fuckups; there was another way, and they could be happy and prosperous.
Iraq was the perfect choice: a dangerous asshole in power, so no one would object to removing him; an Arab nation, one with a long and venerable history; a relatively secular Arab nation, and one with oil to boot. If Iraq couldn't make it, no Arab nation could. Last, a nation of a size that could be easily subdued.
By contrast, Iran has no ethnic connection with the rest of the Arab world (quite the contrary); speaks another language, and has another culture; and has a relatively large population, that, if mobilized, would present a WWII-type scenario.Choosing Iraq was a no-brainer.

Well Iran most certainly deserved it but Iraq was low-hanging fruit because Saddam was already in violation of the 1991 ceasefire so we had a casus belli ready to go. And Iraq was adjacent to Afghanistan where we already had troops.

Think about it. The institution of marriage was doing just fine, minding it's own business. It was in no way a political issue. And then what happened?

Did Conservatives wake up one day and say, Holy cats, we need to stop homosexuals from getting married!

No, it was the Left who started the assault on marriage and made it a Huge political issue. And these idiot Libertarians come along and say yeah let's get govt out of the marriage business. Frikkin geniuses, they are.

I was on that 70,000 tons of metal cruise. 60 bands, 4 stages, and 4 days of partying like a Viking. I had friends in a few bands, so I slept maybe 12-15 hours in 4 days. They cancelled my flight the morning I was getting off the ship, and I "would" have landed before the snow even started. I was stuck in Miami the first day, there was nothing to do there, and nobody fucking spoke English. I rented a dodge challenger and drove to key largo and got my ass reamed by the Hilton there, and it was far from warm. During the 3 days I was there my laptop died taking half the band pictures and vids I shot with it, and I made it home they would have been on my backup drive. Between the car, the hotel and food it was another $1200 for my 3 day excursion

Fuck yeah, I would rather have had my balls frozen to a glacier then deal with the week I had.

No, you don't. You're just a bit intellectually immature.
Suppose Bush had succeeded in putting Iraq on course to becoming a pluralistic, capitalistic democracy, qualitatively changing the trajectory of Iraqi, and therefore world, history. In my opinion, he'd rate FAR above Lincoln, who had fuck-all impact outside of the U.S.

The thing is that Bush may have succeeded. It'll take generations to know for sure. If he did succeed, he will (or should) rate among the greatest of American Presidents.

Think that's off base? Recall Lincoln was considered a retard by his own Cabinet, Seward in particular, and he presided over a catastrophically mis-managed war that went through seven - seven commanders of the army, who faced draft riots in NYC, and risked European intervention on behalf of the South ... yet now is considered among our greatest Presidents.
Bottom line: contemporary judgments are worthless. Only time - a few generations, at least - afford sufficient perspective to generate a non-moronic assessment.

435 Libertarians always fight hard for their social causes -- weed, gay marriage, etc -- but never seem to fight much for their supposed economic beliefs like pushing back against minimum wage laws and other price controls.

They have bitched occasionally about occupational licensing.

They also have been wusses in fighting the Environmentalist as the eco-nazis have taken over the whole country.

Mostly cause it's dominated by big city hipsters who, just like the like weed and gay marriage, also grew up indoctrinated in the Green movement and kinda like that, too.

The massive and arbitrary control the EPA wields on American life is something Libertarians should, by their own stated ideology, by screaming and railing against.

But they almost never do. They scream like hell about pot and gay marriage and anti-war stuff though.

Now all they seem to have left is the anti-war/anti-military stuff.

First of all, the govt did not allow certain people to marry, e.g., siblings, parents and children, adults and certain minors. So nothing new.

Second, marriage actually means something, not just what certain folks want to it to mean. Just like some people out there are insisting that real women have d*cks, which they don't, but we're haters for insisting on reality.

You can never get 100% consent from 100% of the population 100% of the time, ergo, someone is always going to feel aggressed when paying tax for something they disagree with.

So, the ZAP of the Libertarians goes right out the window, and you're left with mass anarchy.

It does not work.
It's great theory, and as little government as necessary to do the constituted duties of government should be the goal, but the choice isn't Libertarianism or Wilson. False dichotomy.

NeoCon: Someone who used to be a liberal but decided to vote for Reagan, originally. A traitor to the cause, and to be hated. Now just someone we hate who we think should support us according to our models.

Paleocon: Someone who is percieved to be, as Dr Jerry Pournelle put it, To the right of Ghengis Khan. (who actually was more of a big state liberal) Think Lumpenproletariat, or Kulaks who might have their own militia.

I thought CrunchyCon was a fan based get-together for infantry as perceived by tankers, but I could be wrong.

Ah, I googled it. People who live an alternative or simple lifestyle full of those things that are supposed to be only the cultural assemblage of the moonbat and counter-culture as seen by reading the Whole Earth Catalog of 1973, however are conservative.

511 Why Iraq and not Iran, my theory:

1. We had the logistic tail in place to hit Iraq, Team Clinton started building it in 96/97.

2. KSA wanted us to stop in 91, because they could control Saddam, he was bulwark against the Shia's, and Uday was a loser. But, by 98 they were afraid Qusay was going to replace Saddam in a relatively benign transfer of power - which would start to give his clan distinctly "royal" airs amongst the Arabs. Remember, the House of Saud and the Hashemites of Jordan aren't exactly the House of Windsor -- they are new dynasties without a great deal of automatic deference.

3. Aforementioned fear of burning oil tankers on CNN caused many a State weenie to wet himself

4. CENTCOM was afraid that Iran would make life difficult in Astan if we invaded, but played nice because we were kicking Saddam's ass.

Why we didn't invade Iran, after Iraq. I don't know.

The thing is that Bush may have succeeded. It'll take generations to know for sure. If he did succeed, he will (or should) rate among the greatest of American Presidents.

I saw someone say that conservatives want limited government until it comes to defining marriage.

Well I'll put it the way I always have: either words matter or they don't. When we start - and we have - redefining words then shit really doesn't matter does it? I support same sex unions and all the same benefits but no church should be coerced or forced into marrying same sex couples. If church wishes to do so then that is their business.

526 I have no problem with gay folks having civil unions.

I have seen some absolute bullshit in my own family with regards to this, and I have pretty strong feelings about it.

There should be some kind of legal contractual protections that prevents someone's sister, for instance, from denying you visitation rights when your boyfriend is dying and form being able to decide to pull the plug on someone you have loved and shared a life with for decades, when you want to wait a while longer. Especially when that sister hated you and your boyfriend.

But I do NOT believe that any church should be forced to "marry" them and I do not think the entire agenda should be shoved down everyone's throats.

We do not need Daddy and Daddy and Me classes at any time, let alone in every grade starting with K. Hell we don't need Daddy and Mommy and Me classes, either. All that bullshit is what turned me against supporting gay marriage at the the ballot box the third time in CA in 2008.

Husband: "yeah, right".

Flash forward several months to Thanksgiving morning while the wife is getting the turkey ready and decides to play a trick on him by taking the gizzards and putting them in the seat of his pajamas while he is still asleep. She hears a huge fart coming from the bedroom, then a blood curdling scream and then her husband running to the bathroom.

After about 10 minutes of chuckling to herself her husband shows up at the kitchen and says: "Remember when you said that I would fart my guts out? Well it happened and by the grace of God, these two fingers, and some KY jelly I was able to get them back in."

Leave marriage as a religious sacrament, as it has been for thousands of years and in most religions, as between one man an one woman, united and sanctified before God.

But the activist class and the courts will have none of that. Nothing outside the state, nothing but the state.

Except for a long time, the govt penalized married

people. Ever hear of the marriage penalty? But aside from that little

issue, your argument is spot on.









Posted by: Mr. Moo Moo at January 29, 2015 11:59 PM (0LHZx)
Yeah,
marriage penalty for certain ranges of incomes (thanks to lefties and
other idiots complicating the tax code - completely different topic),
but overall, married people pay lower rates.


Posted by: Ian Galt at January 30, 2015 12:02 AM (dmepw)


Marriage penalty increased as both spouses earned the same; marriage benefit increased the more disparate the incomes. In other words, if I earned $0 and had a wife that earned $200K, we'd pay less if we filed together. If both wife and I earned $100K each, we'd pay more if we filed together.

567 >>>They didn't offer that on this cruise. But some fun facts- they sell 10 normal cruises worth of booze on this 1 cruise alone. The first year they literally drank the ship dry before it left the dock, and were delayed leaving because they needed a resupply.

I can see why they didn't offer that option. That is awesome.

Last cruise Cougar and I took, Christmas 2013, we bought the booze package. It was like $50 per person per day. It also included all the espresso and ice cream and other specialty shit where they really up charge you.

At day two, I calculated our bill, and figured that even if we didn't have another drink for the rest of the trip, we would have still saved over $200.

I loved that shit. Everyone else was at the bar handing over cash or credit cards for cans of Coors Light, and I walk up and get 4 Tuaca shots and 2 rum and cokes. No, put down the well rum. There's a bottle of Private Stock right there. Use that.

Posted by: OneEyedJack at January 29, 2015 11:54 PM (XmOA9)


Good, finally we have an position to argue other than "icky"

There is no need for a dichotomy. What is being argued should not be some "no true Scotsman" false logic or some sterile A or B stance, but a question of how to increase liberty, and protect it from those who would take it away.

It is really a continuum, not black and white to fight to the death like the Patriots and the Seahawks. Because this is real life and real people and their lives and how much they should be allowed to keep or if anyone can SAY how much the can keep.

I'm a prick. I'm sorry but I intend to be a prick. I think this is an important argument and it is more than "libertarianism is icky" it is what is the best way to safeguard our lives and liberties.

634 Big Popcorn pranks Berkeley!

http://tinyurl.com/ldqsqdn

A summary:

An abrasive radical-left black "comedian" goes to a left-leaning cafe in a leftist neighborhood in Berkeley and claims -- with absolutely no evidence -- that he was the victim of racism there.

What was the shocking, horrifying, history-changing incident which he claims occurred?

He was dressed in a dark hoodie that was covering his face. He walked up to the cafe and started talking to people sitting at an outdoor table. (The people at the table were in fact his wife and her friends.) The neighborhood has a problem with bums harassing outdoor cafe patrons. So an employee tapped on the window and made a head motion indicating that he should leave. And she may have mouthed "Go" or "Scram."

The end.

Ot so he claims.

Well, he wrote an essay about it on his blog, and it went totally viral on the left, and now the cafe's reputation is totally ruined. Its average Yelp rating went from 5 stars to 1.0001 stars within just a couple hours as every Social Justice Warrior in America went to Yelp and wrote one-star reviews, ranting about how racist the cafe is.

The owner had no clue that the incident even ever occurred (which it probably didn't do anyway, but that's another issue) He didn't know when employee had tapped on the window. But within the span of a few hours his lifetime's work of building up the business was in ruins.

Since the moment he found out, he's been groveling like a beaten puppy, apologized 100 times an hour and begging the comedian to do something to save his business.

Are we still going to get the answer to your "thought question"?

You know, this one:

"Thought question: Why do guys universally experience so much anxiety and the fight-or-flight response when approaching a woman they don't know? They're in absolutely no physical danger from her and the worst thing that she could do would be to reject their attentions. I'll tell you the answer later in the ONT."

Personally, I think its probably because guys don't want to be laughed at, especially at a vulnerable time like that.

646 625 Jay, I agree with your take on the Iraq situation. I do believe it was our attempt to make them the "beacon on the hill" for the Middle East.

I think it offered the best shot for an Arab democracy; but after Obama's bumbling, withdrawal of combat troops....it's gone to shit. If Iraq couldn't have democracy take hold, is it possible for any Arab country? Any country with a muslim majority to retain a democracy?

Posted by: Landofskybluewater at January 30, 2015 12:34 AM (JoIcn)



It was never a good shot, but it was our only shot, I think. And you're right: if Iraq can't make it, can any other Arab country - with necessarily less going for it - make it? Debatable, at best.

I think that 'universally' may be overstating things a little. I generally am very comfortable interacting with women in general. I find it easier to establish a rapport with most strange women than strange men. And by strange, I mean people that I haven't met previously.

In either case, if you can cause the other person to laugh, or see the humor in whatever circumstances you find yourself, then you are 3/4 of the way to an easy relationship. People want to feel comfortable.

That's pretty much my take too, but for philosophical, rather than logistical, reasons. I see Iran 2009 as being pretty much in the position of Poland 1989: a restive population looking for moral support (at least) from outside. Bush's intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq provided a basis for hoping such support might be forthcoming from the U.S. The election of the Marxist Mahdi, however, betrayed that hope.

The other day Instapundit linked to an article about Bob Dylan by Nick Gillespie. The article itself was fine.

The comments were another story. There were about 300, only half of which had anything to do with the article. The rest were arguments about overrated musicians and dick-measuring contests about who liked the coolest obscure bands that no one ever heard of.

Of the comments that did address the article, they ran about 20:1 between "Dylan sucks" and "He's not my cup of tea, but I admit he's talented".

No guys endure all kinds of trash talk during sports and other events without getting the butterflies.

The answer is that until very recently in human history it was dangerous to approach an unknown woman with sexual intent. Because nearly all women were claimed by a man and under their protection be it a father, brothers, cousins, or a husband. And putting moves on a spoken-for woman was viewed as a deliberate attack on her male protector. Since a man can't know whether he's the true father of a child, the only feasible way to up the odds is to make it very dangerous for any other man attempting to interlope.

Which means that today we're all the sons of men who were willing to shed blood to protect their genetic lineage AND the Lotharios who learned the hard way to be cautious and cunning at their seduction attempts. The butterflies in your stomach today are the residual warning mechanism from the past telling you that approaching this woman might involve some risk. Not from her but from the men around her.

Posted by: Maetenloch at January 30, 2015 12:53 AM (pAlYe)

696 I think it depends a lot on the setting too.

If you have to 'leave cover' and cross a large open space to approach someone...then you're going to feel even more vulnerable.

And if the woman is with a group...then the danger is multiplied.

Posted by: thathalfrican at January 30, 2015 01:02 AM (R5HRU)

712 Mike Hammer, if you are still here, I made some good progress on the TR6 today. Threw away the tattered and sadly under-sized positive battery cable, which had a "nifty" (patented, even, haha) tie point halfway along it where three power feed wires from the harness tied on to large spade connectors. Made up a terminal block from plastic with a /4" stud to tie the cables to. Ran a short cable from that to the battery, a slightly longer one from the stud to the starter solenoid, and extended the lesser wires and added ring terminals to likewise tie them to the stud. All connections crimped, soldered, and insulated with heat-shrink tube.


Took out the Lucas alternator, also with nifty push-on connectors, even for the main feed, which has to pass 40 amps. Found that two leads from the internal regulator to the rectifier bridge were both loose on their spades. Cut off the spade connecters, cleaned wire and terminal, and soldered those suckers on. For the big 40-amp lead, I crimped and soldered a short pigtail of #10 wire into a female spade connector, put a 1/4" ring connector on the other end, and soldered that, too. Then scraped the mating surfaces for the spade connector clean, and soldered that in place, too. Put a matching ring connector on the harness wire going to the alternator, and joined the two with a nut and bolt, and taped it up. I left push-ons for the "field" lead and the warning light lead, as they don't have to carry much current. But now there are exactly zero push-on connectors between the battery, alternator, and main harness wires.


With this done, I pulled out the choke, turned the key, and it started right up. The longer it ran, the smoother it ran. Eventually it was idling quite nicely. And the voltmeter initially climbed up close to 19 volts, then settled back to about 15, so the alternator is putting out, and the regulator is regulating. Still no headlights, or turn signals.


I am going to see about plates and insurance tomorrow. It needs an Italian tune-up.


And the front carb stopped dripping gas. I am pleased, so far.

713 610 Cuccineli...law to ban oral sex...ring any bells?
Posted by: Mr. Moo Moo at January 30, 2015 12:23 AM (0LHZx)

My recollection is that the law in question had to do with sexual predators and oral sex. And Cuccinelli didn't propose the law - it was already an existing one in Virginia.
Posted by: Maetenloch at January 30, 2015 12:30 AM (pAlYe)


If you are going to criticize Cuccinelli, it's not for this.

I am not and was not a big Cuccinelli fan, and I knew years earlier that he would never win as Governor in Virginia.

Why? He was too visible on too many issues that weren't "state issues". I know the reasons for fighting Obamacare that he did, but to many Virginians that came across a partisan politics, and Virginians have never liked their AG to be partisan, something that the current AG is finding out.

Cuccinelli's problem is that he is awful at campaigning. He thought he could run the same campaign he did in 2009, which was non existent. He ran very few ads in western Virginia where he underperformed, and he was absolutely shitty in fundraising. While he raised the same as McDonnell did in 09, McAuliffe raised twice as much as he did. I usually receive several dozen fundraising letters per election, and tons of calls for me to turn out, I received neither.

It was truly an awful campaign.

And when this journey finally ends may all of us find peace.

Here's to the women that I've loved and all the ones I've kissed.
As for regrets I just have one, that's all the ones I've missed.
Ah women's faults are many, we men have only two:
Every single thing we say and everything we do.

I wish you health, I wish you wealth, and happiness galore.
I wish you heaven when you die, what could I wish you more?
May your joys be as deep as the ocean, your troubles as light as its foam.
And may you find sweet peace of mind where ever you may roam.

I'll have to disagree here. The issue is one of being hindered by laws, lawfare, and overzealous DA's.
That's why someone with a wife and kid in a car, at an intersection, will sit in terror while a flash mob beats on their car, rather than take off and perhaps hurt one of the mob.

My birthday's in November, right where the school admission cutoff is....so I started out being nearly the youngest kid in my grade. Then I skipped second grade -- so I was an average of 1.5 years younger than my classmates. Then, girls mature faster than boys.....




So I never had to "compete" for girls until, essentially, college. That let me relate to them in a far more relaxed way over the years -- and, thus, I was more relaxed when things finally did end up "interesting".

757 I used to be a Libertarian. Big L.


The Libertarian party has a bunch of factions in it:

Ideologically pure Big Ls, who are so into ZAP that they think voting is initiation of force. They have problems with the concept that a lot of folks don't think, and can't be trusted to follow ZAP, even if it is in their best self interest to do so ... they don't understand that people cross the southern border to get on welfare and steal from us, or that some country's leaders just need to be crushed before they learn to behave. Basically near aspie Utopians. Unable to comprehend that most people decide based on their gut, instead of thinking.

Conspiracy fruitcakes, who blame the zionist-banker conspiracy on all of the world's ills, and have learned that if they give lip service to the ZAP cant, they can spew their bilge, and not get kicked out. They are the backbone of the Israel=evil contingent, and plug their ears and shout "la la la la la" when someone points out that Jewish settlers freaking purchased the land they settled on.

Hippies, who would vote for Joseph Stalin if he legalized weed.

A-holes who want a free ride, and have discovered that they can bilk Libertarians out of money and effort if they learn the cant.

And finally, Goldwater paleocons, who are still trying to get people elected to office as Libertarians.


I was part of that last group. I got sick and tired of the crap from the rest, and finally joined the Republican Party.

Any small L libertarian with half a brain needs to just walk away, and become a Republican. We can sell liberty to Republicans, and a lot of them are willing to do what it takes to implement it.

The "W00t!" is because I decided to spring for the limited VIP package which includes a wine tasting before the show, and of course VIP seating. The wine tasting is hosted by Al, who is himself a wine connoisseur. I don't know much about wine. Maybe he can put me some effin' knowledge.

I've never been to a wine tasting before. A regular ticket was $40 and the VIP ticket was $110. I figured life is short, so why not?

*****************
This. We have been at war with Iran since 1979 (they actually declared war against us in 1980 and we are still in a state of war, so far as they're concerned), although certain of our Presidents have tried to ignore it and hope they go away. Iraq and Afghanistan were both opportunities for a strategic encirclement and containment.

Iraq turned out to have an unexpected strategic benefit: it was a magnet for killing Islamists. Rather than chasing them all over the world, they came to Iraq to be killed by us. And were they ever. Not to go crazy about the War of Northern Aggression, but at Gettysburg, Longstreet argued that defense was the stronger form of warfare, and the Army of Northern Virginia should just dig in and let the Yankees attack because they had to -- the Union could not long tolerate Lee's army being on its soil. Lee, tragically, believed in the big Napoleonic blow that would scatter the Army of the Potomac in tatters, hence Pickett's Charge and the ultimate loss of the war. Iraq served the same basic purpose -- we were the Army of Northern Virginia in Longstreet's vision, dug in on Seminary Ridge and across the Taneytown Road, slaughtering the Yankees in rows -- except here we were "dug in" in Anbar and Nineveh and Mosul.

No, it's an OHV straight six, 2.5 liters, 153 cubic inches. Manifolds on the passenger side, distributor and spark plugs on the driver's side. Actually looks like a slimmer and trimmer version of a Studebaker or Rambler OHV six. I don't know where the TR250 fits into the family tree. They have a pretty similar body design.

It makes sense strategically, but only Stratego-ically.

The thing that I believe W fucked up was thinking he could minimize a secondary war in Iraq and then hat-trick the Iran war.

America is war-averse (good thing), but they aren't interested in long-term pacification of a 3-world country 5000 miles away (moderately ambiguous thing? )

W. misunderstood the US public in the sense that he thought we'd be willing to fight for ambiguous occupations because of hmm-phmm.

He thought wrong. And it was a bad gamble. We aren't the country that can stand a drawn out, unpronounced occupation or something that would have worked, a NCO Colonial Army*.

I saw that after. I dig his music, but more, I dig the fact that he had the guts to do what not many people can. Totally sell out (in the original sense of the term) and just head for the islands and see what happens.

If I hadn't met Cougar when I did, I'd probably be working at a marina in the Caribbean or something. I was that close.

They act like doormats, and don't understand why they are permanently friend-zoned, and then walked on.


The very concept of saying "hi" to a girl, and not getting butt-hurt or crushed if she just waves you off, laughs, or puts her nose in her smartphone, seems to be incomprehensible to them.

I think this guy in China is doing these kids a good turn, teaching them to actually talk to girls, and simply move on and not get all butt-hurty if they are rejected.

The TR 250 was just the TR-5, slightly re-engineered for the American market. An up-gunned version of the TR-4 (a car I once owned, that I still regret selling), and a bit more classic in appearance than the admirable but slightly less perfect TR-6.

I crawl through attics and under houses. My largest monthly expense is "tools" (yeah, mortgage is paid off). I'm sweating the electric bill that is due tomorrow - I work seven days per week if the work is there...

I looked & smelled like rotten sawdust, grease, diesel & yesterday's asscrack.
I had a "reputation" for some reason. I minded my own business, totally disinterested in "the scene."
It never failed - I would have numbers dropped in front of me a few times a week, or if I was in the mood, a companion for a night, weekend or a whatever...

In fact, a new Colonialism is the only humane way to deal with a resurgent mohammedan world. Invade, conquer, and run muslim countries as chattel properties of the Colonial powers. Deligitimize islam to the greatest extent possible, and encourage missionaries from other religions, especially Christianity to proselytize and convert the muslims. Create a social environment such that converting is seen by the muzz in the street as a way to a better life, instead of a way to lose one's head.

I think Alberta's making the same point. We had to do it to Germany and Japan. We may have succeeded too well - time will tell if either will ever find its gonads again when needed. And this isn't necessarily the best outcome, but the least bad outcome is that for the next 100 years we (and hopefully some allies) are going to have to eliminate the concept of violent jihad in the Mohammedan world, for our own protection and the protection of our civilization and way of life. Through force and through the power of culture.

It wasn't about occupation, it was about bases. If the bases were built in the middle of nowhere, then we wouldn't have to worry about the locals, but they would know we are close by if we want to reach out and touch them. With bases in Iraq/Afghan, we could launch almost any kind of attack on Iran and kept Syria behaving.

847 In fact, a new Colonialism is the only humane way to deal with a resurgent mohammedan world. Invade, conquer, and run muslim countries as chattel properties of the Colonial powers. Deligitimize islam to the greatest extent possible, and encourage missionaries from other religions, especially Christianity to proselytize and convert the muslims. Create a social environment such that converting is seen by the muzz in the street as a way to a better life, instead of a way to lose one's head.

Correct. The Kurds are tribalists, but I think they can be civilized. The trick is to get them into a trust based civilization. Being a separate cultural group in an Arab sea has started them on that road.

Ethnic Arabs are pure tribalists. If you aren't a member of someone's family, clan, or tribe, you are someone who can be victimized. Kurds have been taught the hard way to trust each other, the first step to making a trust-based civilization.

That sounds awfully like Viet firebase, static, loss-leader strategy.

Rather, own the locale, own the reason for everyone's existence.

"Americans for the most part would never allow it but I'm still convinced that the only 'solution' that would have actually created a strong 'democracy' there, would have been to turn the occupation over to a US Colonial Army. The country gets divided into corporate cells each ruled by a mid-to-high rank US NCO.

By ruled, I'm mean ruled. He owns it and is responsible for everything including security and infrastructure. He also keeps the revenue from whatever projects or businesses he undertakes.

After a decade or so, the colonial commanders could filter in the competent Iraqis into governing positions and slowly turn over the country bit by bit.

Again, Americans don't have the seriousness or interest to do this kind of project, but the mixed up, State Dept-led nation building, $10 billion wad-shots, and ROE moderated nonsense was a poor default.

I read Dartmouth's President's Plan.

By the fall of 2016, every student who enters Dartmouth will be placed in one of six house communities. Each community will have a cluster of residence halls as a home base, be responsible for organizing and hosting social and academic programs, and eventually, have a dedicated space for study and social interaction.

Beginning sophomore year, students will reside within their residence hall cluster when living in the dorms, but even those students living in a first-year dorm, Greek house, affinity house or off-campus will be included in all community activities and events.

Each Residence Community will have a house professor and graduate students in residence.

This reads almost exactly like something, from a few years ago, where all freshmen were subjected to on-campus living, mandatory meetings and indoctrination.

FIRE said that didn't flush, and forced Dartmouth to fix it.

Now it's back, and based on a fabricated story.

When will the firings begin?

864 Jean, I emphasize to students that they need to refine PIRs to minimize the size of the NAI that they're looking at as well as minimize the time that they need to spend looking. Also, to push back when they receive poorly written PIRs from higher. The whole Army sucks at writing PIRs.

Misuse of ISR assets tends to come from poorly written PIRs and a failure of analysts to take a position. Instead they just want to collect data and dump it out again at the CUB.

Posted by: Colorado Alex at January 30, 2015 02:31 AM (10ydV)

865 It's even more basic than that. We're dealing with
the company level, so usually they're relying on the Mk. I eyeball, plus
maybe a Raven and/or an IR camera on a tank/IFV. I try to emphasize
that they need to realize what they can collect organically vs. what
they really do need support from higher for, as well as understand the
ints and the basic capabilities of higher-level assets so that they
don't waste an opportunity when they get the "hey you, we've got a Pred
over your area for the next twenty minutes. What should they look at?"

Posted by: Colorado Alex

Been trying to get more organic ISR and Fire Support for a decade. Seems simple, a loitering UAV that can observe, target, and enhance comms and an easy way to push fire missions from your small ISR assets to your mortar fire control computer. I can cross link ISR stuff from [blank] to another services fast mover via satellite easier than I can get it from a Raven to a mortar team 100yd away.

One of the things the US Navy learned the hard way in WWII was that shipboard fire-control radar needed to be in the fire control room to be effective.

When the Captain ordered the new radar console put in the FC room, their guns always hit at night. Always. No ranging shots, just right on target the first salvo.

On ships where the Captain ordered the new radar consoles put on the bridge, they couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.

875 The surrender that was finally accepted pushed MacArthur as shogun. Truman fired the stalinist retard in the state department that wrote the first surrender demand, and replaced him with a second generation Japanese-American.

The US press got the Madisonian version.

The official account of Patton's death was a traffic accident. The other vehicle just happened to be driven by a communist. I guess I'm just overly suspicious.

And yes, the fact that Japan and Germany were already trust based civilizations made occupation a damned sight easier.

The Raven is about as small as we can make a system right now that is functional. The UAV is only one, relatively minor, part of the ISR problem at the Company level. The Company level is lucky to have it at all.

What I would like to see at the Company is:

1. Each Company get 6-10 more soldiers
2. Dedicated Iridium (Voice and short message (CoT!!!)) at at least the squad level so local communications planning would have a reliable fallback without repeaters and planning
3. A better box of UGS (the toys exist - but only special people get them)
4. More dogs.

908 [820]That said, i used to go to my local bar 4/5 days a week. I would sit at
the corner, order a drink and my dinner, then try to sit quietly while I
did the crossword puzzle.

I looked smelled like rotten sawdust, grease, diesel yesterday's asscrack.

I had a "reputation" for some reason. I minded my own business, totally disinterested in "the scene."

It never failed - I would have numbers dropped in front of me a few
times a week, or if I was in the mood, a companion for a night, weekend
or a whatever...

No shit. I go to bars and *read*. I always have, for 25 odd years now. I'm relaxing, and that's how I relax. Seeing a dude reading in a bar for some women is like a laser pointer for cats. Assuming you have a little bit of the gift from kissing the Blarney Stone, you can get your dick wet anytime you want to. I'm a fat, ugly, middle aged man and even though I've been off the market for 13 years.....man, if I wanted too......poon city. Just from being different and not apologizing for that difference. I'm confident in who I am.

Had my (and my Manager's) 1st "one on one" in an open call center type environment for a new project. He was concerned that I might have been nervous.

It went swimmingly but a few min. over, so next in line had to come back to to his office (which is catty-corner from mine) after we were done and she could see I was back at my desk.

Once she was walking juuust towards my office-space entrance and towards his desk, I put my head in my hands and started *fake* sobbing.

"Oooh, hoo, hoo!"

Gently yet pitched just right.

All KINDS of heads gophered up, nearby. She did pause and then laughed.

"Deety! Stop being mean!"

The problem with this one is the pleats are neither to the stripe, which would be appropriate for the US Navy Edzell tartan, nor to the sett. If there was a stripe in the pattern where the pleats are it would be correct, but they folded this one ON the stripe instead of TO the stripe...so it has to be redone.

If you have the Great Kilt you can fold them yourself, but the traditional kilt (or at least traditional as far as the one everyone thinks of when you say "kilt") has them pretty much sewn in. If I had the material I'd do the Great Kilt; 60" by 7- 9 yards. Not happening soon, at least not in the Edzell tartan (runs around $53 per yard at current exchange rates).

Sooth I think you're wrong but only in one sense.

This season's "guest big bad" to Boyd is going to be "Fracking Companies" and they are working in a "Blackwater is Teh Devil" side storyline...

Essentially since they decided "fuck it we're done" the more liberal writers are going to get their kicks in for "the cause" with Raylan as the kicker.

He was on a tear about "folk who are on welfare but think we're gonna take their guns away so they hate the government...."

anyway I am gonna stick with the show b/c in for penny in for year 6 but yeah it *is* repetitive...

OTOH what else could it be, and aren't most shows REALLY anyway....?

Gunsmoke was the same six or seven shows for nigh 12 years and it worked...

how many times can Columbo "one more thing..." corner people...Perry Mason do his thing...the answer when well executed is *a lot*...

it just seems they are going through the motions and letting their freak flag fly this season....

I have a few pair but, in-the-ear plugs get real sweaty real fast.
I have a pair of the foamy kind with a string between them. The string was a complete PIA.

I prefer over the ear now. Since I am careful with my money(read cheap), I now use a $10 pair from Harbor Freight. Comfortable and effective.

956 Wow, lots of posts on this thread. Anyways I want to get back to neocon Maet (j/k!) on the Reason article. I haven't had time to go thru all the comments either here or on Reason.com, but most of the regular commenters there don't consider the author of the piece to be particularly Libertarian. Now of course there is a strong stream of 'no true libertarian (scotsman)' that runs thru the commentariat, but they seem to really dislike this author.

Remember that Weigel used to work there was hated as well. I don't think its necessarily a good benchmark to use this article as a point that all/most/many(?) libertarians believe. In the PM links, the commenters were discussing how Reason.com is off track with some of their writers there were some serious suggestions about it.

The ATM is typically secured in a room that would take considerable effort to break into while alarms are blaring and cops are on the way.

Well, this is so late that I'm sure no one will read it......but regarding the Reason link, Sheldon Richman (the author) is commonly one of the most heavily abused Reason contributors in the comments sections of his pieces. He's most notable for his frequent whitewashing of Iran and other instances of Rothbardian idiocy. In other words, he's a jackass who is largely ignored or mocked by the majority of readers. At least, a majority who comment. He and Steve Chapman are the biggest jokes at Reason.

Anyway, as someone who reads both AOSHQ and Reason daily and comments infrequently at each, what bothers me is that people who have common cause on the majority of issues seem to reserve their most intense anger for each other, rather than the leftists who are the true enemy. It's oftentrue over there, it's often true here.

The ration is more like 8:2 delicious ice cream and dog poop. Abortion is another one that makes people think Libertarians only care about legal pot. Ron Paul, and admitted kook when it comes to foreign policy and the global reality, is firmly pro-life since, you know, Libertarians are supposed to be all about respecting everyone's rights and non-aggression and stuff. But the mental gymnastics many supposed Libertarians have to pull off to justify the libertine aspect of their politics beggars belief. It never seems to occur to them that if you have to go out of your way to justify violating the rights of a particular group to invent ones you supposedly have, you're doing liberty wrong.
