They're not slacking off, they had to stand still for the photographer because film sensitive enough to work with fast shutter speeds had not yet been developed.

21 Ha, now I see why the left is all upset about Cernovich. He's had people going through old tweets and found some really idiotic statement by an MSNBC contributor about Roman Polanski. So MSNBC fired the guy (or whatever they do to cut themselves off from one of their hangars-on) and now all of his bodies are shrieking that MSNBC is just doing what Cernovich is telling them to do.

In the real world, all Cernovich is doing is being a good Alinsky disciple, and demanding that they play by their own rules. Not surprisingly, they don't like that, not one little bit.

23 How beautiful! As a general rule, I am not fond of quieter color palettes, but this has enough flashes of color to 'make it move'. Don't know why the man is plowing perpendicular to the triple tree avenues, but the contrast gives the work its distinction.

That's because the man is trying to decide if plowing through an orchard of shallow tree-roots will or will not cause him to finally pull out his old Army pistol and end a life of unending agricultural stupidity.

Even in the washed out state there's a vibrancy to the light that makes it work.

But speaking of flowers, in the early 1900s there was a perfume line called "Reiger's Flower Drops." They came in violet, rose, lily of the valley and other scents.

Breaking up the soil and such. FWIW, we used to have an "orchard plow" - basically a low slung framework with blade, and John Deere made an "orchard" model - all designed to not catch/damage trees.

Sat down right outside our house in the driveway until the dog's barking set him off into the woods. Husband tried o get him with the 22 but the coyote was probably out of range.

Second this. Before the election he was certainly not a Hillary supporter. Afterwards he seems to split 50/50 between good Trump days and NeverTrump days.

So fairly balanced, maybe? I don't go to Drudge enough to be sure.

Toni put up a gargantuan fight against the cancer. Now, she is passing, but still her body lingers. Please pray for Toni that she passes peacefully into Jesus' loving arms. She is a devoted Catholic.

197 My dad bought an apple orchard shortly after I was born. He then went back on active duty. 15 years later when he retired from the Army he moved back to the homestead and aimed to fulfill his dream of being an apple orchardist. My brothers and I served as cheap labor in the effort. After about the sixth year of operations Dad totalled up his expenses and income at the end of the year and had made a net profit of $9.32

The next year he tore out the apple trees and converted the acreage to alfalfa.

Dear Friends,

Some of you might know Toni from New Jersey. She is a faithful moron
and her Romeo and possibly Rosie (cats) were part of the pet thread.
Toni is now in hospice for her cancer and at home with her dear husband.
I met Toni right here on Ace of Spades and we became dear friends,
emailing and calling texting back and forth. Toni put up a gargantuan
fight against the cancer. Now, she is passing, but still her body
lingers. Please pray for Toni that she passes peacefully into Jesus'
loving arms. She is a devoted Catholic. I don't know what else to do but
write this. She loved all of you so much, and had such fun on these
threads. Please pray and send her love.

The Little Rock is being commissioned in Buffalo because Buffalo has the original WWII cruiser USS Little Rock dock in the Buffalo River as part of its Naval and Servicemen's Park. It's to usher in the New while paying homage to the Past. There was a great picture in the local newspaper of the Park's docents lining the forward deck of the old ship, saluting the new one as it passes. The crew of the new ship raised colors and returned the salute. Very cool. The Park also includes the battleship USS The Sullivans and the submarine USS Croaker.

376 On a completely different topic:



For any Colorado Morons interested in health care and who like digging around in stats, there is a very detailed report on financials of Colorado Hospitals, including some statewide summary info as well as hospital-by-hospital individual facility financials with breakdown of payer mix, total revenue vs. net revenue, profit margins, breakdown of expenditures (i.e. administrative costs and the like). I've been poking around the last few days. Finding some interesting tidbits.

For example, statewide payer mix (as of 2015) is 61% Medicare/Medicaid and 39% other (private pay). Perhaps 10 years ago that ratio was reversed.

Trump took one of the negotiating pieces off the board and reset the terms of the deal.

488 As far as I ever knew, "Palestinian" was a sort of polyglot, almost cosmopolitan designation for whoever the hell lived there at any given time. Mostly Christian historically, mostly Greek or Latin or English or Arabic speakers. Even under the Turks, it was mostly Christian Arabs. They didn't give a damn about the religious sites in the Levant.

Then some Egyptian dick in the early to mid 20th century flooded the zone with poor Arab refugees to help destabilize the British in transjordan. Those people took up the name "Palestinian" at the behest of the Nasser-tie forces. Basically an artificial insurrection. An exsurrection?

That's my understanding, at any rate.

I really think a lot of people have been missing the forest for the trees with Trump. They focus way too much on individual tweets or actions in a moment of time and don't look at the big picture.

Trump is a disrupter. He ran on changing the dynamic not just tinkering around the edges.

Take the State Dept. People are way too focused on the day to day rumors about Tillerson, will he stay or will he go, and not seeing that he has been ripping apart the status quo and forcing a lot of long time employees out while he changes the structure of how the place operates. He isn't doing this without a plan.

And this is happening all over government. Look at what is happening at the CPFB. Not only has Trump taken it over, the dissidents have now taken to communicating in some dumb Harry Potter code.

DC will never be the same after Trump and he is just getting started.

Oh gawd, I wish. I searched and it was worse than that! Not only did it have the obvious St. Hillary, but there was a Saint Ruth Bader Ginsburg that you could pray to. Seriously.

things.

That really only works on WPS implementations on older wifi routers. I used that setup for about a decade. Newer WPS implementations have "fixed" the flaw in WPS by forcing timeouts after successive failed attempts.
The WPS flaw is one of my all-time favorite security-engineering screw-ups. For those that don't know, WPS is the "idiot-proof" way of connecting to a wifi access point by pressing a button on the router and then typing in an 8-digit code to connect. An 8-digit code seems pretty secure (100 million combinations), except in the way they implemented it. The last digit is a checksum of the first 7 so that reduces the combinations to 10 million right off the bat. Then the real screw-up: The router confirms that 7-digit code in two parts: the first part is 4-digits (10,000 combinations) and if it's correct then the second 3-digit (1000 combinations) part is confirmed. So now your 8-digit code only has 11,000 possible combinations, trivial to brute-force if the router gives you unlimited attempts - which they all used to do. The only limitation is the strength of the wifi signal as the WPS handshake was a bit sensitive to noise. Worst-case scenario for hacking a WPS router would take about 10 hours, most took about 2-3. To make it worse most routers back then wouldn't actually disable WPS when you turned it off it in it's interface.
Oh, and I know nothing about this being desirable to women.

Obstruction was the plan all along. The bogus collusion act was designed to bait him into obstructing.

Which will be an interesting case to make..

The President is Commander in Chief... and Chief Executive... AND the Chief Law Enforcement Officer...

DOJ and FBI and such work for him.

Can you Obstruct an organization that supposedly works for you? or by telling them what to do would you be... oh... I don't know... DOING YOUR DAMN JOB!

Instapundit claims Sessions is doing the same in the DoJ. I don't know who is source on that is, but he's generally reliable which is why I'm not calling for Session's head just yet.

Both Nixon and Clinton were accused of obstruction of justice as part of the articles of impeachment against them.

It can happen.
