Just about everything he predicted is coming to pass.

Governing!:

The House voted Tuesday to affirm that stores on federal lands operated by the National Park Service cannot sell Confederate flags. Confederate symbols in educational items like books or historical documentaries would still be allowed for sale. But standalone items depicting the Confederate flag would be prohibited.

Adoption of the amendment to the 2016 Interior Department appropriations bill came easily on a voice vote after just six minutes of debate, where no one spoke in opposition.

This is actually very very clever. It gives the appearance that the media are actually being critical of Hillary, but without actually hurting her electorally.

Senate Republicans appear unlikely to use the funding process to block President Obamas plan to open a U.S. Embassy in Cuba this month, despite initial vows to prevent the landmark policy change.

Meanwhile, Happy 18 Brumaire:

Proposed California Senate bill SB 539 declares, On and after January 1, 2017, a name associated with the Confederate States of America shall not be used to name state or local property. If a name associated with the Confederate States of America is used to name state or local public property prior to January 1, 2017, the name shall be changed and any sign associated with the name shall be removed.

The bill os aimed directly at two schools in Southern California named for Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, but could have a wider effect, including Fort Bragg, a 19th Century military outpost in California that later became an incorporated city after the U.S. Army departed.

Oh, I hope we're going to do even better than Obama-like court defiance: There has been, since before this latest ruling, a serious movement afoot to replace those Okla Supreme Court judges who seem to the citizenry of the state to be a tad out of touch with the sentiments of the people.

87 What has trump said that is not true

No matter that it's him, or how he says it, has anyone refuted what he said
__________________________

They can't refute it. Something like 40% of Arizona's state prison population is comprised of illegal aliens, the majority of whom are . . . (put on your shocked! face) . . . Mexican.

On the federal level, the government's own statistics prove that illegal aliens commit a hugely disproportionate percentage of federal crimes. Powerline had the stats up yesterday in an article there on Trump's comments. Illegal aliens supposedly make up 3-5% of the total U.S. population, yet they commit far more than 3-5% of federal crimes -- and at the state level (especially in border states like AZ) it's even worse.

117 We were on a field exercise near the Czech border when a few guys decided to sneak into town one night. They left their weapons rolled up in a sleeping bag in their tent and headed out. Of course, they were mechanics, so when someone broke down that night and sent for them they were found to be missing. Quick search of the tent reveals three M-16s, which their Platoon Sergeant grabbed. Waited for them to sneak back in and panic about their missing weapons for about a half-hour before calling for a formation, where the BC basically took all of their rank right in front of everyone. Months of extra-duty, Article 15s, eventual ETS at the earliest opportunity. Dumb guys, but at least one would have probably made a career out of the Army if not for that fuck up.

134 I was stationed in Greece in the late 80s.

They were boned then but at least they could float the drachma. Exchange rate fluctuated about 30% over the year. (Same was true with the lira when I was there).

The EU bought them some time, though. Gave them shit tons of money, Athens got cleaned up for the Olympics, and getting the terrorists out of their government seems to have been mostly positive.

The big holiday in Greece is "Oxi Day" (pronounced "O-hee") . Oxi is the Greek word for "no." The celebration is that Mussolini asked Greece if he could invade, and the Greeks said "no." Which they are quite proud of. Of course, Mussolini having been turned down, he called Hitler up and cried about it, and then Germany did not ask if it could invade.

Germans used to come down to Greece to vacation on the beach and were basically Europe's version of the ugly American with their strong mark.

So there is a lot of resentment, mostly well deserved, for the Germans in Greece.

And yet, they need that German teat desperately.

Boned.

So... because Germans fuel Greece's Tourism economy but expect to be catered to, Greece's "resentment" of the Germans is "mostly well deserved?"

Or are you saying that modern Greeks are still blaming modern Germans for WWII and calling that "mostly well deserved?"

Because neither of those would seem to be accurate. When you economy runs on foreign tourism, you may indeed resent those tourists with all their money, but that resentment is hardly "well deserved."

CIA World Factbook:

"Greece has a capitalist economy with a public sector accounting for about 40% of GDP and with per capita GDP about two-thirds that of the leading euro-zone economies. Tourism provides 18% of GDP. Immigrants make up nearly one-fifth of the work force, mainly in agricultural and unskilled jobs. Greece is a major beneficiary of EU aid, equal to about 3.3% of annual GDP."

196 @145 - AllenG, yeah, I think that WWII's sins wear a long time.

Tourists wanting to be catered to is fine - though no one is Europe is all that up on service - but when I said that the Germans were like "ugly Americans" I mean that they were obnoxious and messy and destructive. Think about the stereotype of the ugly American that Europeans had, now make that person Eurotrash that drinks LOTS of beer.

And, yeah, imagine having to cater to that person because that's all you got.

Some of the resentment is not well deserved, some of it is just jealousy of the successful big brother by the layabout little brother.

But the point is that Greeks have been Socialists for a long time, they have been puttering along as a mostly third world country for a couple of millennia (I remember seeing donkey carts and goat herds in downtown Athens, thinking this used to be the capital of the world, and is a capital of a NATO country.) They did not just suddenly become low productivity takers who firebomb capitalists.

That the people who invaded them and committed atrocities in their homes within living memory are telling them how to run things is not going over well.

There has been a fair amount of break-ins in our neighbor hood over the last few years. Our neighbor hood association has worked hard to organize watch committees and work with the local police, which has had a positive effect. They also have worked on forcing some neighbors to get the junk of of their yards, organize trash pick-ups and some other problems like loud music and reckless drivers. I used to participate and supported their efforts but do not not anymore and just plan on moving in another year or so. Why? No mention is allowed of who are causing these problems. (It is the massive influx of illegal aliens in our area, no question whatsoever). In fact, they still spout a lot of non-sense about diversity and tolerance. Damn if I'm going to go around picking up trash thrown out of cars by drunk illegals.

But that's just the point. "the people who invaded them and committed atrocities" *aren't* "telling them how to run things," because those people aren't in positions of power. The Nazis were defeated and (mostly) rooted out. You can no more blame Angela Merkel for WWII than you can blame me for the Civil War.

I do not at all doubt that they *do* feel that way, just as many here in the US (and here at the HQ) constantly re-fight the Civil War. But the fact they do does not at all indicate that it is "mostly" or even "partially" deserved.

And, as for the "once the capital of the world" thing... one of the reasons Rome took over was that Greece in general, and Athens in particular weren't really good at reacting to new situations.

221 Regarding the Fed's stolen gun: the angle that I'd actually like to see played is there shouldn't be a time I have to leave my gun in the car. People in the city don't leave anything in their cars unless they have to. Since we're not talking about a truck gun here, I'd like to hear about that side of things.

For instance: if I wanted the greatest chance of stealing a gun, I'd watch middle-aged white guys going into a Post Office and parking on-street. Seems to me you'd have a pretty solid chance of scoring a pistol if you were patient.

They are spoiled and believe that others should support their ridiculous lifestyle. The only thing keeping the spigot opened is fear on the part of the lords of the EU who know that if they let Greece go it is just the first domino.

But it appears that the sham of Greek defiance ended today and now they will take on more debt under terms that they will never be able to meet to keep the charade going just a little longer. I have no sympathy for any of the parties involved.

Me, I'd leave everyone's names right where they are. You cannot change history.

Well, if I were King I would systematically erase all public mention of Bubba Klintoon, Choom Boy and Jimmuh Cahtuh. No point in public pimping for the three worst traitors in American History.

The really sad thing here is that many of MS's failures in the mobile sphere are due to anti-Microsoft bias. I've used iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone, and Windows Phone has the best of the operating systems for my money. I prefer the Nokia phones to any but Samsung (I wish Galaxy would offer a Windows Phone option).

But a large number of important companies simply boycott Windows Phone... just because. Many of the large corps that *do* offer WP apps, throw together the worst drek I've seen.

And I've programmed WP apps, so I know the issue is with the application, not the platform.

I have better up-time with my Windows Phone, better battery life, and more access to the things I actually do. I don't particularly want to go back to Android.

308 "On the federal level, the government's own
statistics prove that illegal aliens commit a hugely disproportionate
percentage of federal crimes. Powerline had the stats up yesterday in
an article there on Trump's comments. Illegal aliens supposedly make up
3-5% of the total U.S. population, yet they commit far more than 3-5%
of federal crimes -- and at the state level (especially in border states
like AZ) it's even worse.





Posted by: TrivialPursuer at July 08, 2015 08:26 AM (kGrdk)"

There are a couple of things that can explain that. For one thing, illegal aliens are younger than the average of the US population. It is generally younger people who commit most crimes. Even career criminals tend to slow down in their mid forties.

Another possibility is, since nobody knows the real numbers, maybe illegal aliens are much more law abiding than other people but there are far more of them in the US than anybody is willing to admit.

Posted by: JackStraw at July 08, 2015 08:17 AM (g1DWB)

Not the unrest, per se, but respective government's reactions to it. Dictatorships seemingly always blame outsiders of one sort or another for all their economic woes to deflect massfear, hysteriaand resentment outward. Prior to WWII, one of Imperial Japan's ministers (I read it one of John Toland's books and forget which minister) expressed envy of Nazi Germany because of Hitler's use of the Jews as a national scapegoat.

I'm guessing China will grow even more provocative in the South China Sea. Their generals and admirals have been complaining lately that their forces lack combat experience, so they'll probably manufacture some. They no doubt believe they can keep it regional and localized because Obama doesn't have the stones to interfere.

Another possibility is, since nobody knows the real

numbers, maybe illegal aliens are much more law abiding than other

people but there are far more of them in the US than anybody is willing

to admit.

Then again, they could also
have in general less regard for the law, since their first acts in the
country include, you know, breaking the law.



Mexico's 'law enforcement' is based on the concept of 'la mordida' - 'the bite'.

Bribery is not only commonplace , but expected. How does one go from that environment to the US where bribery is (nominally at least) a criminal act.

We are not only importing their diseases and illnesses, their poor education and criminal class, but also their institutional bad practices.

344 But a large number of important companies simply boycott Windows Phone... just because. Many of the large corps that *do* offer WP apps, throw together the worst drek I've seen.

And I've programmed WP apps, so I know the issue is with the application, not the platform.


^^This, though I've only dabbled with the programming for WP (do C#/javascript/web programming). Microsoft came into the smartphone game way too late. Their small initial marketshare compared to the iPhone and Androids meant that companies weren't going to spend a ton of time or money (like any) developing for it. It's frustrating, because a lot of the features work very well.

It's also frustrating because some companies go out of their way *not* to develop for WP.

For instance- I happen to know that Gamestop is a Microsoft shop. Everything is .NET, C#, ASP.NET, SQL server backed. They created a new phone app about a year ago developed with C# on Xamarin. Perfect match for Windows since, you know, it was developed for Windows.

They didn't release a Windows Phone version. Only iPhone and Android.

.One of the big reasons the DOW is stuck there is the Fed pumping in an extra $3-4 Trillion dollars into the economy in the last decade via QE Infinity, now they have stopped and so has the Stock Market climb. That money pretty much had no other place to go other than the Stock Market.

In a better world, phone systems would cater to specific types of users, rather than everyone trying to be everything to everyone. You aren't going to out-Apple Apple, and frankly, you aren't going to out-Google Google, no matter how much the Apple cultists think they do.

Personally, the number one feature I prefer with a phone is battery life. Everything else is quite secondary to that. If the phone can't hold a charge, it doesn't really matter what doodads you have on it.


So that's what I shop for when I purchase a new phone. Operating system, I couldn't care less... except I start with the assumption that I am never going to purchase an Apple product in my lifetime... until they make it mandatory. Which they might.

Today, I can write notes to myself and save them to the cloud, and when I switch platforms, they're still there.

Why should I not be able to buy your app once, and then re-download it for free when I switch platforms?

Of course, I don't buy apps anyway- I have never cared enough to pay money for an app.

497 Take the family on a vacation to the Virgin Islands. Get poisoned by toxic pesticide and are paralyzed for the rest of your life---have to be strapped in a chair to even sit up. Life just ain't fair.
________________________

It's awful what happened to that poor family. But I was surprised that it happened in a fancy, $900 a night resort in the Virgin Islands. I expect that kind of stuff on the crappier Caribbean islands -- I once stayed at a cheap hotel in St. Maarten which smelled so strongly of pesticide in the room that I slept on the balcony just so I could breathe -- but not the pricey resorts.

I know the family's doctors aren't expecting much more improvement for the husband and sons, but I hope they're wrong and a miracle happens for them all.

499 The last numbers I saw showed Flynn with 23% against LaHood with 69%.

Of course, only 11% turnout.

LaHood had the name recognition.

Had I been running his campaign, I would have made a few changes.

First, I would make a logo that doesn't look like he's running for Head Leprechaun at the Lucky Charms factory.

Second, I would buy him a suit and tie for debates.

Third, I would not limit the targeted voters I went after to those who hate the republican establishment but are embarrassed by Sarah Palin.

Fourth, I would have made the campaign more about electing Flynn than not electing LaHood.

But that's all in the past. Now, it's time to get over the loss and keep the seat in the R category.

If you want better results next time, hire better advisers.

Probably not. It's going to take some amount of time (which we probably don't have) to convince enough people who have been voting Republican for their whole lives that there is a value in electing someone who doesn't immediately attach to the backsides of the Republican leadership.

Think about it. If you believe your salvation comes from government, and face it, most Republican voters do, it would be logically incoherent to vote for a guy who promises to buck the Party leadership.


Regardless of anything else that happens in 2016, it is highly likely the Republican Party will still hold a majority in the House, and it is just as likely this leadership structure will remain intact. In the short run then, electing Ray Lahood assures more government gravy pouring into your district. That means a lot to most voters.

I think Roth's work ok for sort of a longer term emergency fund, once you run out of cash, but you need cash on hand. A lot of online banks will give you .5-1% without requiring thousands of dollars and I use those for emergency funds (and various other pockets of savings like car and vacation).

But generally, unless circumstances are quite dire, it's best not to use your retirement funds for everyday living. Unless you are retired.

I think you misread their motivations. Trolling is an attempt to evoke an emotional response--usually anger but sometimes shock and disgust and even fear--from their targets. That's the payoff. So I advocate denying the payoff and going after them in kind.

Nothin' on Ace or that "Flynn" dude, but this exposes a basic flaw in the system: a majority of those elected to positions in D.C. turn overnight from potentially decent human beings into rabid, greedy, unscrupulous shitweasels. People like Boner clearly demonstrate that a two-year term is simply too damn long. And six years is, well, insanity.

The Constitution needs to be amended to either wipe out the influences that turn good people into career criminals, or add a provision that allows for us to remove them at regular, short intervals.

Perhaps we could establish means to have sheriffs march into Congress and the White House and remove the miscreants in chains. Authorize them to make monthly visits.

619 I was just asked how to spell "SharePoint" as in the Microsoft product.....

I'm in a review-sheet battle over the copyright header in our test scripts. Our company changed names a year ago; the directive was to change the company name in all code and scripts and documents when you edit the content and to use the new name on new stuff. The intention is that a script last edited in 2015 does not bear the name of a company dissolved in 2014, in case there's some horrible thing with an engine failure and all the test documents get subpoenaed and you know what assholes lawyers are.

This seemed like a very easy and reasonable thing to me, but apparently correctly pasting the name of the company into a text file is so impossible it's unreasonable to notice that it wasn't done. O.o

Honest question.


Posted by: some random meathead

From Wikipedia, Hamilton on term limits for the President, but I think it extends more broadly:

Hamilton believed that executives should be eligible to serve as many terms as the American people allow. He argued that limits on re-eligibility would hamper an experienced president to use his past expertise. In addition, Hamilton argued that term limits prevent an executive from utilizing experience gained in special emergency situations in other terms and that term limits restricts stability within the executive.

The Domino Crisis was a seminal event in the history of the Great Unification. It began with the complete political collapse of the Kock-Holster Coalition after years of corruption and increasing political dysfunction by the family of Kock-Holsters that ruled over that group of stations. Amid political turmoil, five stations abruptly seceded and were accepted into the Brent-Adriatic Alliance; which precipitated a civil war between loyalist Kock-Holsters and the separatists.

Do you mean shorter terms of office, or shorter term limits?

Because the Founding Fathers did not include any term limits. The 2 Term limit on Presidents was added later.

As for shorter terms... probably because of technology, and social concerns as much as anything. Two years is about the shortest amount of time a legislator could usefully serve (even in a sane regime, you've probably got a year of ramp-up time to fully understand the ins and outs of how everything works), so two year terms for the House makes sense. The others are (were) probably for similarly utilitarian reasons.

660 Some Random Meathead, I think I found it!

In Federalist Papers No. 53, James Madison, father of the Constitution, explained why the Constitutional Convention of 1787 rejected term limits.

"[A] few of the members of Congress will possess superior talents; will by frequent re-elections, become members of long standing; will be thoroughly masters of the public business, and perhaps not unwilling to avail themselves of those advantages. The greater the proportion of new members of Congress, and the less the information of the bulk of the members, the more apt they be to fall into the snares that may be laid before them," wrote Madison.

661 Term limits are a terrible idea.

It would lead to a hidden power structure of staff and bureaucrats who have mastered the system with hapless elected officials coming and going.

Elections provide a means to send bad officials home. The lack of information is what prevents more turnover.

Well, they actually didn't include ANY term limits.

But, to answer your question, I think that the idea that someone would run for election, serve, run for re-election, serve, run-for re-election, etc. for the rest of his life was a concept that the Founders would consider quite strange. "Who would ever want to do that?" would probably be their response.

They had career government guys, of course, but they were in the diplomatic corps or some such. But elected leaders? What they expected was that you'd be elected, serve for some short period of time, and go then do something else. Like George Washington.

LDC, thanks for the earlier updates on GOP governing with resolution and intent (folding on Confederate flag sales, Cuba embassy).

So yesterday in the car, Hewitt's stand-in former Cong. Campbell (nice guy, amazingly clueless on some issues, amazingly so) asks Beltway lightweight Freddie Barnes about upcoming action in the Congress.

Highway bill. Fred says Reid/Dems may block/obstruct play games with it to embarrass GOP ("they can't govern").

You see, getting a highway bill (traditionally bursting with pork and special set-asides) - that's "governing". Cuba embassy? Whatever. Confederate flags? Yeah, we need to jump on a weeks-old bandwagon that while small is one of the most bizarre and idiotic cases of mob hysteria in modern US history.

DOD budget? Continued (Now With Formal SCOTUS Sanction!) lawless rule on O-care? Deficit and spending levels? IRS criminality (in some ways the biggest scandal in US history)? Farcical, Third World disorder and outrage from mass illegal immigration, "sanctuary city" idiocy?

Nah. Highway bill. THAT's what the country is waiting to see.

BTW, Fred's son works for Kevin McCarthy, as I learned in that broadcast. One small, pathetic, sub-mediocre club of arrogant, self-dealing, clueless parasites with not a hamster's level ofunderstanding of public service, economics, the constitution, national security, justice, or anything else of import.

727 A federal judge has ordered the Patent and Trademark Office to cancel registration of the Washington Redskins' trademark, ruling that the team name may be disparaging to Native Americans.

The ruling Wednesday by Judge Gerald Bruce Lee affirms an earlier finding by an administrative appeal board.

In his 70-page ruling, Lee emphasized that the organization is still free to use the name if it wishes - the team would just lose some legal protections that go along with federal registration of a trademark.

The team had sued to overturn a ruling against it by the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. The team argued that cancellation of its trademark infringed on its free-speech rights because it required the government to judge whether the name is offensive.

The organization can appeal.

738 One of the things that makes it all feel so hopeless is that every layer of government, from the lowest lackeys up to the Supreme Court and elected offices, is filled with people who are acting as they would if they were trying to destroy (well, "fundamentally transform") the country. They have mastered the use of the mechanisms of government to hamstring the nation, to secure their own positions, and to destroy any effective opposition. The battle isn't against Obama. There are millions of people with the same mindset in government, and they hold almost all the cards.

The House of Representatives was designed to be inhabited by representatives of the people, voted on by them, and were to be representative of their particular corner of the country. People who served as representatives had actual jobs, businesses, farms, etc. that could barely survive their absence.
The framers were well aware that if the service were made to be a paid position, the exact problem of politics would encroach. But they needed to be paid enough that they could afford to serve , so the constitution includes the payment of repesentatives, left up the legislature to decide.

Also, remember that the Senate was designed to be a cooling off place to oppose any mob rule that might come out of the House, and Senators were equally distributed by the states and were to be appointed by the state's governor, and were subject to recall by the state legislature.

And then, politics took over and the 17th amendment eliminated the senator appointments and made them an elected position.

So, the feds would have to challenge the ordinance in court. And the language will be the exact language used by SF.

835 You all have to remember: A huge chunk of all federal laws are only enforced because the initial arrest was by local law enforcement.

You don't read about the DEA making a huge MJ bust out on I-56; it's the local highway patrol or police. Who then call in the feds, who then charge with a federal crime.

But: No arrest and a release = no crime.

Oh and no witness to the crime either--remember: no city resources can be used directly or indirectly to enforce the law.

Means, sure Officer Smith may testify on his own but, because he has indirectly used city resources (when he could have been working for the city), he will lose his job.

System probably choked on pre-programmed trading. There is a chance the market could open 600 to 700 points down after the logjam is cleared.

851 Folks, there was a recent news item where a democrat activist was killed by a black thug on a train. He even had made all of these posts on facebook and such about the Charleston shooting, but my searches are all turning up nothing. I don't have access to the place where I got the link right now -- anyone know the story I'm talking about? I think it happened this morning.

The man walked up from behind the woman as she walked with her boyfriend in Hollywood near Sunset Boulevard. He aimed a shotgun and killed her just after 10 p.m. Sunday, then stepped into a black sedan and disappeared.

Police described the suspect as a black male wearing dark clothing and a hoodie. Authorities said they are planning on looking at surveillance footage from nearby businesses to assist in their investigation.
