Overnight Open Thread (09-10-2018 )

Wisconsin memorial.jpg

A Wisconsin fire department recently captured an unexpected but touching moment on one of its cameras.

Mine honor is my life; both grow in one;
Take honor from me, and my life is done.
-- William Shakespeare
My honor is dearer to me than my life.
-- Miguel de Cervantes
To die with honor when one can no longer live with honor.
-- John Luther Long

Except...the most fecund (by far) of American Jews are solidly in Trump's corner. What that means for American Jewry remains to be seen, but there may be a second wave of American Jews that will overwhelm the current left-leaning, Jewish-by-culture-only version.

35 Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
The first foe in the field;
And with a stronger faith embrace
A sword, a horse, a shield.

Yet this inconstancy is such
As you too shall adore;
I could not love thee (Dear) so much,
Lov'd I not Honour more.

Duly noted. Year's later, it's still an amazing sports story. Seriously, how many athletes have thought about doing something similar? But Tonya, she was no dreamer. The times called for decisive action. She sized up her assets - primarily a not too bright boyfriend and a club- and went to work. You just have to have some grudging respect for that kind of insane determination.

83 Steyn: Great civilizations can survive a lot of things, but not impoverishment of spirit. That's one reason I didn't join in the media sniggers at Donald Trump's new Space Force - because I'd like it to be true. ... Those "Space Age" astronauts were men of boundless courage and determination: they strapped themselves in and stared not just death in the face but death in hideous and unknown ways. Yet they were also ordinary men, who were called upon to do extraordinary things and rose to the challenge. These days we are unmanned in more than merely the sense of that Luna 2 expedition. Glenn and Armstrong are gone, and their surviving comrades are old and stooped and wizened, and yet the only giants we have. Space may still be the final frontier, but today, when we talk about boldly going where no man has gone before, we mean the ladies' bathroom. Progress.

85 An entire reading list about Honor from James Bowman.

http://www.jamesbowman.net/honor.asp


E.g.:

"Where the opposite of celebrity is obscurity, the opposite of honor is shame - that is, not being unfamous but being famous for the wrong reasons. Nowadays, it sometimes seems as if there are no wrong reasons.... I think it is significant that notoriety, and even its adjectival form, 'notorious,' are now almost always used as mere synonyms of 'fame' and 'famous'."

I found this quote in a 1996! WaPo article:

"Someone needs to stand up and defend the Establishment. In the last couple of weeks, there's been too much pseudo-populism, almost too much concern and attention for, quote, the people -- that is, the people's will, their prejudices and their foolish opinions. And in a certain sense, we're all paying the price for that now. After all, we conservatives are on the side of the lords and barons...

...there will always be an Establishment in a system like ours. The task is to make it a decent Establishment, and not just pretend that the voice of the people is always right. We at the Weekly Standard are pulling up the drawbridge against the peasants. I may need to get myself pitchfork insurance."

Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding.

Which do you choose?

Nancy is the goodie two shoes type. She's going to be a lot of work because she's probably a Type A and high maintenance. Tonya is the girl who go and see to relieve the blue balls after you drop Nancy off after the date. She's also the girl who knocks on your window and wants you to sneak out with her cuz she stole a fifth of Jack and he let's go down to the river and see what happens.

T.F.G.

Cicero knows this one:

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear."

205 The Japanese Honor Code was what made it's warriors among the greatest fighters in the world, even they were not of great physical stature and had few other inherent advantages over other cultures. Believing in Honor means you have something powerful that you believe in more than you believe in your own life - And once you accept that your own life is not the most important thing in the universe, then it becomes much much easier to fight to the death. It even becomes natural to continue fighting to the death even when defeat is assured, because Honor is more important than Life. That's how the Japanese fought.

And men who are willing to fight to the death with no reservations are the hardest warriors of all to face.

(compare to Arab fighters, who will fight wildly as long as they are convinced they are winning, but who believe that Allah has fore-ordained a loss if things go badly. Which is why every Arab army for the last 700 years has broken and run the instant the battle begins to turn against them. Arabs have no concept of honor, because Islamic culture does not value honor)

She probably will. She's still two levels above anyone else in women's tennis. She loses eveey once in a while but, in general, she can beat the crap out of all of them on a regular basis.

She's old for a female tennis player and she's had some medical problems that have taken their toll.

It's more likely that she's been taking some sort of steroids and that has been the problem. Even so, I wouldn't doubt that she can go on beating up the rest of the women's tour for another 5 years.

Most likely she's going to start placing lower and lower, making this particular stunt look more pathetic than empowering.

237 Personally, I'd like to see them start muzzling ALL the women players who shriek and shout when they hit the ball. For the great majority, they don't do it because of effort but as a sort of cheating to distract the opponent (as they are still shrieking as the ball is being contacted by the opponent) ... or just because they think they're doing "what men do" (which is just not the case).

Monica Seles had a serious neurological issue that caused her to shriek when she hit the ball and the rest of the women picked up on it as if that was what made Seles great ... No, girls ... it was a mental thing.

1., she's still all over a lot of Chase Bank's advertising, which makes me chuckle.

2., I personally am very disappointed about it. I had no idea she was such a tantrum-thrower. It used to bug me how much respect John McEnroe got when he used to behave like a spoiled screaming child, too.

3. No less than Martina Navratilova is saying Serena's behavior was really objectionable, but I won't be surprised if she ends up surrendering to all the screeching SJWs and apologizing for saying it within 24 hours. Martina is notorious for endlessly spouting every stupid PC victicrat canard there is about being a woman, gay, minority, etc etc etc.

1., she's still all over a lot of Chase Bank's advertising, which makes me chuckle.


Posted by: qdpsteve at September 10, 2018 11:05 PM (feaxc)


Yeah ... all of a sudden she's gotten lots of ad work. She never used to get any, because she's just not good looking, but now a few companies are really pushing her. It's annoying. She's pretty much the last thing I feel like seeing in an ad. And this new thing with making her "super-mom" is just pathetic.

But it's funny they are saying how tough it is to play and be a mother (which I don't disagree with) but just 3 months ago they were complaining that women who give birth ought to get special ranking hold treatment - right now they are treated like having injury lay-offs, as to allowing them to have a protected ranking for a certain amount of time and number of tournaments.

Typical argument you get from these types, they have to lose both sides of the argument. Now, that's selfishness.

256 Palpatine, the Japanese army started out as highly trained and motivated, but with losses and garrisoning requirements they wound up having to expand much faster than they expected.
Unfortunately, the officers and the troops were not up to any fancy movement, toward the end of the war, and often they had to rely on fast movement, elan and mass wave attacks on contact to carry the day.

There was also the unfortunate part of Bushido which considered death to be part of honor, and that surrender made you subservient and not eligible for human treatment, and treated POWs the same way. Which is why MacArthur had a lot of them hanged when he had the chance.

Posted by: Margarita DeVille at September 10, 2018 11:15 PM (0jtPF)


The umpire had no choice but to take away the point. The coaching violation was a certain class of violation that is cumulative over the match. The racket breaking is that same class (and everyone always gets called for those violations - so much so that some people actually play a point with a damaged racket because if they get a new one they will get the penalty for racket abuse) and the second violation of that class requires a point penalty.

The ump had no choice. And Serena was bitching at him about the point penalty, which she was totally wrong about.

282 Heh! moment this evening. Went to a saloon in Apache Junction for a couple of beers and a sammich. There was an old but very shiny Volvo 245 wagon in the parking lot, with a hot pink cardboard "scream" in the back window that read (in a shaky hand) "Trump = traitor = impeach".

So I go into the bar, and sit down, order a beer and meal, and wonder who the owner of the scream is. There is a big woman in a baggy outfit, wearing a sort of Rosie-the-riveter do-rag, sitting a couple seats down from me. I mostly ignored her until my sammich was gone, and then she asked the bartender about an address that would be in East Mesa. I asked her what she was looking for in that area, and she said a do-it-yourself car wash. I told her, "You don't have to go that far, there is a good one at Ironwood and Superstition." She then developed a raging case of hiccups. I suggested to the bartender that the lady might like a glass of ice water, and she poo-poohed the notion, but he brought it to her anyway, and it did end her hiccups. She thanked me for the help, and left. About ten minutes later, I left myself, and the Volvo with the pink scream was gone. I drive by the aforementioned car wash, and there it is, in a bay, with the large gal waving the wash wand over it. Suspicion status: confirmed.

She didn't exactly agree with the sexism charge though.
She said it should be investigated but not assumed without proof.

I think one problem the tennis insiders have is that, as Mary Carillo noted, this particular umpire is one the players have always highly respected.

I'll bet many of them agree with Carillo that Serena acted like a bully--- but few will dare say so.

Posted by: JT at September 10, 2018 10:26 PM (ome5S)

I had a Hoya Stick, once. Ever see one? A little hardwood stick, about a foot long and 1/2" square, with rounded notches cut along one corner about a half-inch apart. On one end, there was a little slat of flat wood, pivoted on a nail, so it could spin like a propeller. You held it in your hand, and used your free hand to rattle another short round stick of wood up and down the row of notches. The "propeller" would spin merrily. From time to time, you would shout "Hoya!", and the propeller would slow to a stop, and then commence spinning in the other direction. You could mystify children for hours with it.

333 This story kind of ties together Harding and Kaepernick. (It is just a joke, not true.)

After being awarded the Purple Heart as part of the 82nd Airborne Division in Bastogne, Howard Anlugen returned to the US to play linebacker with the NFL's Boston Yanks during the 1947 and 1948 seasons. On his 95th birthday earlier this year, he was asked what he thought of today's NFL players taking a knee during the National Anthem.

"I don't like it at all," Anlugen said. "It does not reflect well on today's players or the league.

"In my day, if you were going to take a cheap shot at one of the other team's players, we at least waited until the opening kickoff."

Apparently "taking a knee" had a different meaning while Anlugen was in the league.

About two blocks from my house we came upon a chaotic scene with police, ambulance, neigborhood, sobbing lady, kid on a stretcher and a bloody, dead dog. Seems the dog attacked the kid and was shot but by who is not clear, but I think the police. Lady crying I think was owner of the dog but maybe also mother of kid who I have never seen. Oddly I heard no sirens. Did the police come in response to m the dog attack and then killed it? Police weren't talking and and none of the neigbors seemd to know either, or weren't talking about it.

I don't think we have grand juries in Canada. A Coroner's Court might handle cases where it is uncertain who what to who. This one seems cut and dried, and likely a Crown Prosecutor (similar to DA) would simply enter a charge of manslaughter (or muder, if there was evidence of intent).

527 Door locks.

Buy commercial locksets from your local locksmith. Install supplemental steel reinforcement plates in the door frames, and door reinforcement plates behind the door-locksets.

Drive 6" or longer screws every six inches through the doorframe, and into the house's framing which forms the door opening.

Make sure those screws are sunk below the wood surface. Putty, sand, paint. Make 'em disappear.

NO ONE will kick in your door. And that Police type swinging battering ram?

Gonna take more than a dozen strikes, and that's by their BIG GUY.

Wanna make it tougher still? Blind dead-bolts, top and bottom corners of the door. Visible only from inside the house.

Oh, and all of this predicates a steel door, first. You don't have a steel door? No?

Then you have but a slightly delayed entry system.

528 Clubbing with an AR-15 would depend on the furniture involved I would guess. The more substantial butt stocks would hold up. A drive down to the ground would be safer. Swinging like a baseball bat might get a broken stock (buffer tube). (shear force at the rear of the lower receiver is limited).

I think it might depend upon one's clubbing style. If you were to grab the forearm like a baseball bat, and swing the rifle to club a miscreant, it might upset the bedding of the action in the stock. But if you were to thrust the buttstock into the miscreant's head, in line with the axis of the barrel, it might not do any damage.

543 I guess you're specifically talking about what would happen to a cop shooting like the Dallas one in Canada.

In general the cops investigate a crime and arrest the suspect; then the Crown Prosecutor [the D.A.] decides whether to press charges. There isn't a Grand Jury but usually a Provincial Judge reviews the Crown's evidence [like the "People" bring a case in the U.S. to a Grand Jury] and decides whether there's enough prima facie evidence to accept the charges. If yes, then it moves onto the full trial, and any subsequent appeal(s) if any by the losing side.

In some cases there is no preliminary hearing and it goes right to trial.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Criminal_law_of_Canada
#Preliminary_inquiry

I don't know the systems in other provinces but if a cop in Ontario is involved in a crime or during the performance of his duties e.g. shoots a suspect (or a bystander!), gets in a car accident etc. there is an investigation made by the non-police, civilian Special Investigations Unit instead of the cops investigating themselves. Before the SIU was set up, cops from a different jurisdiction would investigate the situation like having the Ontario Provincial Police [Ontario's "state troopers"] investigate Toronto's Metropolitan Police but that was thought too subject to an appearance of a lack of impartiality even when it was a different force investigating the alleged transgression.

566 9/11 was so surreal for me... It still seems like I'm shaking off a bad nightmare, even now... My son, Teh Eldest Spawn, was only six months old...

I and the lovely and long-suffering Mrs Roshia-no Botto had been on the WTC observation deck the previous summer during one last she-and-I-alone-together (Well, she and I, and the embryonic Eldest Spawn!) weekend fling in The City before our lives changed forever as we started our family...

He doesn't find it remarkable in any way that he was there -- sort of, before it came down -- I guess I understand...

Seriously, he had a stash of 1958 and '59 les paul bursts, which were almost 400K at their peak with some hitting 700K. He has a 1958, or '59 Korina explorer, which they made less than 25 IF that many. I only played 2 in my life, and thats a miracle. They were minimum 5-700K, or more. He has two 1958, or 59 korina flying V guitars, which they made less than 100. I played maybe 10 in my time. Those were probably 4-500K. Of course condition is everything. He had a fortune in guitars when they were at peak prices. I know they took a hit in the value, but I hear they came back pretty strong.

Hmm, isn't the piston system recessed into the stock ?

Posted by: weft cut-loop at September 11, 2018 01:01 AM (c07y/)



Piston System ARs, vs. Direct Impingement ARs... the piston system resides (generally) under and to the rear of the front sight. With the remainder of the system extending aft, in the space normally occupied by the gas-tube of the D-I systems.

What you're describing is the Recoil Buffer, which resides within a stout tube, which doubles as the "chassis" over which the buttstock-of-choise, is installed.

Short version. The part you'll want to research is the "Buffer Tube", and there is a Civilian Version and a Mil-Spec version. Always buy the Mil-Spec.

The "Gas Piston" is the primary motive power to operate the rifle's action. The "Recoil Buffer" is the spring powered, weighted buffer (which looks like a piston), that RETURNS the Bolt Carrier Assembly to Battery, after the Gas Piston slammed the whole damn thing to the rear.

In the Direct Impingement System, nothing but the burning combustion gasses power the bolt carrier itself, as a "pseudo piston" into the Recoil Buffer.

Both are AR pattern rifles.

Lower and upper receivers are identical. As are the Recoil Buffers, buttstocks, pistol grips and most marketed fore ends.

But the gas front sight block, gas tube OR Piston Sight Block, captive piston and operating rod, as well as the complete Bolt Carrier Group, vary wildly between the two divergent platforms.

They're nearly identical, except for where they're not.

Sounds like a train wreck:

I realize the Brits pulled off a successful charge in 2004, but the odds...

Posted by: Ace's liver at September 11, 2018 01:31 AM (h2Bdk)



You're just willing to die.

Those Brits, and I hope, myself, and I believe, a LOT of the Horde...

Yeah, we'll die, too.

But in the process, one or two of them are going to die in the process of my demise.

And THAT, is one or two of THEM, no longer available to kill my avenging Brothers n' Sisters who will surely come, even if years after my demise.

Making it EXPENSIVE to them is a First Principle of War.

You go ahead and keep your knife in your footlocker.

Stay there and sit on your footlocker, too.

Send with the troops though, a MAN who will bring his KNIFE and his WILL.

That's a man I'd want fighting beside me.

You? Keep drinking, Liver.

You'll die of chirosis, at best, and that, without Honor.

Myself? I hope to die of old age, in the saddle, a la Nelson Rockefeller.

But if our society demands CWII? I'll be on the line.

And I'll have a bayonet.

You?

Do as you wish. I do not care.

645 I was doing tech support for Lockheed Martin on the overnight shift. I was close to being done when word went around the help desk that an aircraft had crashed into the World Trade Center. Everyone was asking how that kind of an accident could happen and I remembered that a B-24 had crashed into the Empire State Building during WWII, but conditions were really bad.

I went into the break room when my shift was over and was talking to my supervisor Will W. who was a retired USN bubblehead. We got along well both of us being Navy. We were watching the tv when the second plane hit the other tower. I looked at him and said, That was no accident and that it was an act of war. Will said yeah, but what country has just attacked us and where do we fight back. I said all of them. Turn every country from Pakistan to Syria into a glass parking lot.
I have never forgotten and I will never forgive. The best thing we can do is go all medieval on all their asses. If they want to play medieval, we can play it better.

Sadly, from George Bush to the media to all the PC SJW pukes, we cannot call the enemy the enemy. We've gone into this fight with one hand tied behind our backs, and it's been that way since Viet Nam. If we are going to fight a war, let's fight the damn war and finish it. Don't pussyfoot around and say this is not who we are. Go in, send them back to allah or whoever, kill them, break their shit and tell them don't make us come back because you think you got your ass kicked now, just wait if you make us come back.
I guess I'll go to the range tomorrow and take my anger out on a bunch of paper targets. But I will remember.

669 What amazes me is the everyone -- and I mean EVERYONE -- is missing the point about the Serena Williams meltdown brouhaha.

It's not about sexism.

It's not about racism.

It's not about entitled celebrities.

No, what this incident proves finally in front of the whole world, is that Serena Williams is taking steroids.

What she exhibited on center court is classic " 'roid rage" behavior, seen in boybuilders and athletes who take steroids.

It's for some reason taboo to note that Serena Williams' body underwent a huge transformation about 10 or 15 years ago, when she went from normal tennis-player-body to Incredible Hulkette massive Crushinator body. How can it be that NO other female tennis players have developed a body like hers? Even though they work out and practice and play just as much as she does? The only way any woman can get a body like that is by taking real or artificial male hormones, aka "steroids."

I don't know why this isn't discussed more.

Oh wait, now I do -- she has a magic shield of protection around because of her race and gender.

But this latest rage explosion is conclusive evidence for me that she is on the 'roids. That' s what this all about.

677 What you're describing is the Recoil Buffer, which resides within a stout tube, which doubles as the "chassis" over which the buttstock-of-choise, is installed.

Short version. The part you'll want to research is the "Buffer Tube", and there is a Civilian Version and a Mil-Spec version. Always buy the Mil-Spec.

The "Gas Piston" is the primary motive power to operate the rifle's action. The "Recoil Buffer" is the spring powered, weighted buffer (which looks like a piston), that RETURNS the Bolt Carrier Assembly to Battery, after the Gas Piston slammed the whole damn thing to the rear.

In the Direct Impingement System, nothing but the burning combustion gasses power the bolt carrier itself, as a "pseudo piston" into the Recoil Buffer.

Both are AR pattern rifles.

Lower and upper receivers are identical. As are the Recoil Buffers, buttstocks, pistol grips and most marketed fore ends.

But the gas front sight block, gas tube OR Piston Sight Block, captive piston and operating rod, as well as the complete Bolt Carrier Group, vary wildly between the two divergent platforms.

They're nearly identical, except for where they're not.

This, because his crazy (objectively so) mother had him committed when he was 14 for being depressed and suicidal. He was discharged a day later because he wasn't depressed and suicidal. Nevertheless, it's on his record, and the Navy now will not accept him in any capacity. And this, of a young man who any of our armed services would be lucky to get.

"I have a question for you guys: Who's ready to save America? Who's ready to make America the country we say it is on paper and make it the actual country that it wants to be?," Hogg asked the Canadian crowd. "I think the most important thing to realize, however, is the problems we face as a country, whether it be water in Flint, Michigan or the amount of mass incarceration of people of color that can't vote."

Hogg continued by suggesting that Canadians can donate money to political campaigns in the United States, which is a felony.

I saw the Towers fall while standing in the middle of 5th Ave. Almost slugged a proggie who was telling everyone 'it's our fault'. My fists were bunched ready to swing when I heard a fireman (from a stationhouse around the corner) whisper in my ear, 'I heard what he said. I have your back'. First time I heard that proggie 'it was America's fault' bullshit.

That that day has been so thoroughly whitewashed by the media pisses me of to no end. And I cannot fathom schools who think remembering 9/11 is detrimental to some snowflake's mental state.

Can't wait, actually I can, to hear what PC bullshit deBolshevik spews out of his worthless piehole.

If all gun owners are responsible for some crazy ass shooting up a joint, then all muzzies are guilty of 9/11. Legal immigration from those turd world muzzie shitholes must stop -- should've stopped 9/12/01. But 'diversity', which is why I say, fuck diversity.

To say "religion of peace" in that situation tells you all you need to know about that asshole. I never, ever, forgave that useless fucker for that statement. I will never forget what those peaceful, backward thinking, goat fuckers, did to the people of New York. I would have gutted that prog on the fucking sidewalk.

718 9/11 changed my life. I lost an across-the-street neighbor in the crash into the Pentagon. Sorta knew two of the USN officers in the message center. I was a mile away. An unforgettable day.

But I can look on the personal positives. I walked 2 miles to help a woman get home, against the flow of refugees from Reagan Airport. She left 5 minutes before I got there. She got stuck in the grid-locked traffic, and was on the road 6 hours.

I was in my near-by house 4 hours earlier. I went to her door to wait for her. She is now my wife.

and than Benghazi..we'd changed so much that we arrest an obscure video guy to take the rap for mismanaged arms dealing for ___ ? and the possibility that (Hillary private server? outted the plan?) terrorist were not actually blamed but We citizens because of free speech.
and the day becomes a day of service, and to forget and forgive the deaths of all those innocents and all those that died trying to stop the threats of islam.

Surprisingly, from what I read on the intertubez, we are still better off than what they're doing to the citizens in the UK, at least relative to expressing an opinion (but Google, Jack, and the Zuck are working on that!!

The Turning Point USA video up top is a nice reminder of that.

800 Muldoon, on the other hand he was right. Perhaps it was his previous experience of his youth.

*******

The very first f**king words out of his mouth as we stood there and watched 3,000-plus people die. Yeah, I guess my short description above didn't do him justice, but the guy was a anti-American muzzie apologist who was a dishonest self-serving jerk. Nothing in his background except naked self-interest would have made him think that thought at that particular moment.

I'll say no more about it.

802 Hrogather, zuck etc etc, tech in general is just trying to beat the election season, we wouldn't want any interference from the likes of the peasants to state opinions other than their own.

A Garand/M14 makes a fine platform to butt stroke the enemy with.

Lots of weight and sturdy construction lessen the chance of damage.

807 Muldoon, aww, yes that is more enlightening. I cannot imagine, I was in that first couple of days a state of despair it took a few more days while for anger to come out. a few days later , I was ready to enlist myself.

808 That kid in the picture needs to get his elbow a little higher, otherwise, nice gesture.

809 If today's freedom of speech means the left gets to censor all the things they hate and the right gets to listen to Ben Shapiro say how that's what freedom of speech is all about as he very silently faps to internet lewdz of his sister's boobs then I'm against today's freedom of speech.

810 I have a friend who describes himself as a liberal. He and I disagree on a number of things. However, he voted for Trump because he didn't trust or like Hillary Clinton, but he doesn't like Trump or agree with all his decisions, is leery of Evangelicals although he's a Christian, and he is enraged by the shutting down of conservative websites, He believes in free speech. He was a Democrat voter for more than 50 years. I can't say that he won't be a Democrat voter again depending on who they put up, but if the Democrats think everybody who describes themselves as a liberal is on board with the crazy leftward turn of the party, they're wrong. The guy who started walk away is planning for a National March in D.C. The week before the election
