The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Snuggle in God’s arms. When you are hurting, when you feel lonely, left out. Let him cradle you, comfort you, reassure you of His all-sufficient power and love. Kay Arthur

Quote II

“In the three years I’ve spent at Facebook, I’ve found multiple blatant attempts by foreign national governments to abuse our platform on vast scales to mislead their own citizenry, and caused international news on multiple occasions,Sophie Zhang


Quote III

We have these fires in California, and in the West, 16 people have died in Washington, Oregon, and California, including a firefighter and a 1-year-old baby. We — our firefighters have been so, very, very courageous.

Now, we’re, again, breaking records. Mother Earth is angry. She’s telling us — whether – she’s telling us with hurricanes on the Gulf Coast, fires in the West, whatever it is, that climate crisis is real and has an impact.Speaker of The House Nancy Pelosi

Selective law enforcement and judicial tomfoolery has run amok in Portland. You can't make this stuff up.

On Sunday, police arrested a man who confessed to starting a brush fire with a Molotov cocktail in Portland. They booked him in Multnomah County Jail. Portland being Portland, the authorities released the suspect that evening. The man then went on to start six more fires before the police arrested him yet again. The cops took him to a hospital for a mental evaluation.

If this behavior is peaceful, I would hate to see them if they were pissed off.

Rieli Franciscato, 56, the head of a program to protect indigenous groups that have little or no contact with the outside world, died Wednesday in the Seringueiras region, a remote municipality in the northern state of Rondonia, said a statement from the Brazilian government's indigenous affairs office, FUNAI, where he worked.

FUNAI declined to say how he died.

But witnesses said he was shot with an arrow while monitoring recent appearances by a tribe known as the "Cautario River isolated group," according to a photojournalist in the region, Gabriel Uchida.

Rieli was accompanied by a police patrol. When the party came under fire with arrows, they ran to take shelter behind a vehicle, but Rieli was hit in the chest, witnesses said.

He was taken to the nearest hospital, but died soon after.

The tribe "are known as a peaceful group," Uchida told AFP in an email.


I wonder if he and Timothy Treadwell are hanging out in the after life. Just thinking out loud.

Everything you wanted to know about Boston Dynamic robots but were afraid to ask. Or maybe not.

Boston Dynamics hired Playter in 1994. After 18 years as vice president of engineering, Playter took a director role when the company was acquired by Google. Following Google’s sale of Boston Dynamics to Softbank four years later, he became COO and then a year later, CEO.


“The company is transforming,” Playter said. “There’s a lot of change that’s taking place. And we’re trying to do some things that are pretty hard. Our history is we’re an R&D organization. And really, we’re the best in the world at creating some new concept of a robot and making it work well enough that you could go do a demo with it. And we are trying to hang on to what made us great there: the ability to do advanced development and research and solve fundamental and hard problems but also develop our commercial muscle, learn how to sell a product, manufacture it, support it, and ultimately make a profit. It’s not always easy to have both of those kinds of goals coexist.”

To help Boston Dynamics become a commercial company, Playter has been hiring executives with experience in sales, business development, marketing, HR, and finance. The engineering leadership has come from the R&D realm and will remap how the robots are produced. But the majority of the new work is happening on the business side, where the company is “developing the processes and the discipline to go build a profitable business.”

The Church of The Perpetually Offended is alive and well. How dare a clueless white guy use a word revolving around Mexican culture!

As if it wasn’t already hard enough to open and maintain a restaurant in Minneapolis, what with the pandemic and rioting making the city almost unlivable. Brian Ingram found out the hard way that there were even more challenges awaiting him has he prepared to open his new eatery, Elotes Woodfire Grill on Thursday. The grand opening didn’t take place, however, for a couple of different reasons. One was a rather mundane problem with failing a municipal fire code inspection, but the other was a protest launched against the restaurant before it even opened. Activists were unhappy with the name, saying that Ingram, a White man, had no business using the word “elotes” because it would represent “cultural appropriation” of Mexican heritage or something.

Joe Biden can't answer soft ball questions without a teleprompter. No way Biden can go face to face with Donny "Two Scoops" for four hours.

President Donald Trump has accepted an invitation from Joe Rogan to appear on his podcast for a 4 hour live debate with Joe Biden.

Tim Kennedy tweeted that the challenge was made by Rogan during an appearance on his podcast.

“On my podcast with @joerogan he offered to moderate a debate between @JoeBiden and @realDonaldTrump It would be four hours with no live audience,” tweeted Kennedy.

“Just the two candidates, cameras, and their vision of how to move this country forward. Who wants this? #debates #Election2020.”

“I do!” responded Trump.


The prospect of Joe Biden being able to withstand a 4 hour debate will be interesting given the myriad of questions surrounding his mental faculties and his inability to avoid verbal slips ups even during short news interviews.

Joe Rogan appears to have popped up on Trump’s radar last week when Trump began retweeting clips from his show.

The ONT Musical Interlude


September 14 is the anniversary of the Battle of Fort McHenry during the War of 1812. Francis Scott Key wrote "THe Defence of FOrt McHenry," which became "The Star Spangled Banner" and later the National Anthem. Here is a recreation of an 1814 version of the song. H/T Isophorone Blog

Born on this day: September 14, 1983 - Amy Winehouse
Amy Winehouse, UK singer, songwriter. Winehouse's debut album, Frank (2003), was a critical success in the UK and was nominated for the Mercury Prize. Her follow-up album, Back to Black (2006), led to five 2008 Grammy Awards, tying the then record for the most wins by a female artist in a single night, and made her the first British female to win five Grammys. Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on 23 July 2011, aged 27. Her album Back to Black posthumously became, for a time, the UK's best-selling album of the 21st century. via thisdayinmusic.com

Before I dive into the content...

Is this something?

Lately, I've noticed, Ace has been loading so slowly that frequently my browser times out. Repeatedly refreshing, same result. Front page and comments both. This is while using my AT&T cell as hotspot. No other sites do that, just AoS.

Twice now, when that happens, I've switched on VPN and voila! Page loads plenty fast.

Could AT&T be suppressing .mu.nu? Seems unlikely, but... hmmmm.



VPN might mess up my IP for sock counting purposes, though.

71 As for that last picture: Walmart, H-E-B, Kroger, Publix, etc etc etc owe me so much store credit it's not funny. Why? Because their employees are nowhere to be found, and short people - 99% of whom are women well over 50 - ask me to get them items off of high shelves. Being a shade over 6 foot tall, that's what I'm there for.

Or course, on those rare occasions I am at that European chain, Walmart (well, they feature European shopping hours), I encounter the very top shelf, and snicker when I read "Please ask for assistance with items from the top shelf". So there's that.

Future generations will be ashamed to read how companies that consider themselves progressive such as the @NBA and @Disney
joined with conservatives including @realDonaldTrump to sanction concentration camps and human rights abuses by the Chinese government against Muslims.

Between the lockdowns, the mostly peaceful riots and now the choking smoke permeating everything, I'm starting to lose my shit. We didn't see a shadow all day. My eyes and throat burn. I'm coughing.

'On my podcast with @joerogan he offered to moderate a debate between @JoeBiden and @realDonaldTrump It would be four hours with no live audience,' tweeted Kennedy.

'Just the two candidates, cameras, and their vision of how to move this country forward. Who wants this? #debates #Election2020.'

'I do!' responded Trump



My prediction: Joe flakes off after dithering. Jo Jorgenson is offered as an alternative, they decide to talk for an hour, and I give a 50-50 chance that Jo either votes for Trump or takes up his platform as LP candidate.

Air purifiers are great, but if you don't have one, closing windows and running the furnace fan full time, so the air goes through the filter, is the next best thing.

I live in an ancient house without such things as central air, so I had to get an air purifier. I think it has helped massively, to the point where when I leave my bedroom in the morning and get out around the house, my eyes have to get used to life outside the room and I undergo a minor sneezing attack. But this is what I need to do right now.

I can't imagine being in nurse ratched's situation. If it were me, going through the breathing troubles I have had of late...I'd evacuate and say "call me when it's over". Of course I know plenty of people out that way can't do that.

But apparently some combination of low interest rates and not enough houses on the local market, plus being in a desirable location, is making it a really hot seller's market. Odd.

203 I've been driving all day, but I wanted to make a comment about that Fox poll from earlier in the day.

Fox is not unusual in getting R/D/I splits that are something like 49/46/5. A lot of polling units will push the Inds to pick which party they identify with or will use a secondary screen like "who did you vote for last time"

Most of the time it is kind of a wash because the Inds will split about 50/50 and the poll is pretty close.

Dem outnumbering GOP by 4 or 5 is not uncommon in a poll. Dems have more registered voters in general, while GOP has more reliable voters.

Where the problem comes is in a year when the Ind has a strong preference. Other polls show Trump leading 55/45 or even 60/40 with Ind.

I'm not going to pull out excel to rebalance this with a more realistic result, but this poll at best is a tie with registered voters.

And the voters are still being lied to about Biden's health. Once that becomes obvious, this election is going to start avalanching. Bad enough that it could have devestating down ballot impact.

The Dems are on course to pay dearly for fixing their primary for Biden.

I'm not usually on the ONT this early. Apparently I've been missing stuff.

Just walked Linda back to her place, as I do each evening. The wind is starting to pick up a little. We may not get rain until midday tomorrow, so I might be able to exercise early. All I worry about is the power going out.

And I still think Star Wars' opening text was capped by the words "Episode IV: A New Hope." I recall being surprised by it when I first saw the film on its initial run. Now, it's possible I have it mixed up with a later release, or saw it on video. But I didn't even have a VCR to play videotapes until 1985. Perhaps when it ran on HBO in the early Eighties, the text was new there and that's what I recall.

The only way to tell would be to run a 1977 print of the film, if such a thing exists. Or to find a contemporary review or commentary about the film in a newspaper or something.

240 And I still think Star Wars' opening text was capped by the words "Episode IV: A New Hope." I recall being surprised by it when I first saw the film on its initial run. Now, it's possible I have it mixed up with a later release, or saw it on video. But I didn't even have a VCR to play videotapes until 1985. Perhaps when it ran on HBO in the early Eighties, the text was new there and that's what I recall.

The only way to tell would be to run a 1977 print of the film, if such a thing exists. Or to find a contemporary review or commentary about the film in a newspaper or something.

You're having a Mandela Effect. The 2006 releases included discs with the original theatrical release, complete with giant praying mantis in the cantina. Star Wars did not have the Ep. 4 A New Hope on the crawl. Apparently it was added only in 1981. Also another change is that "rebel" isn't capitalized in the original crawl.

246 The incompetence of California's government is staggering.

Earlier today, when talking about clearing out the deadwood, someone complained that it would take a million acres of controlled burns a year to get it under control and keep it under control. A million acres! The size of the number daunted the guy.

I pointed out that the state of Florida does two million acres of controlled burns every year to keep its dry, oily, Zippo-like slash pine forests under control, and Tallahassee is not exactly a model of well-functioning anything.

Except, I suppose, by comparison to Pacific Coast state governments. Our ridiculous tinderbox forests don't light on fire and turn the state in a low-rent substitute for Mordor. Our stupid bullet train was actually built... and is privately run, even profitable until this COVID nonsense crippled it, like every other business. We don't have ridiculous taxes, or outright commies in government (or at least, they are quiet and unknown, and have no power).

I think both can be true.Trump is ahead in NC, and if he is not, we are are deep shit. But Trump is gaining with minorities but still it is close. The only answer possible is lefty liberal white jagoffs. Look at it another way, a previous Republican president had such numbers with various minority groups, the election would be a trouncing ala Mondale or worse.

We see again an again that the real issue is lefty white people who went to college clueless and came out dangerous.

One wonders if a new sort of segregated polity will emerge in the next five years. Maybe there will be parts of the country where mask/mass insanity will be accepted as normal and obligatory. Other parts will hopefully just point and laugh.

So they added it before 06. Everybody knew it was Episode IV in the 80s, which was why all us kids spoke hopefully about there eventually being nine movies.

So did they add it to the rental VHS tapes we copied?

I don't take that, or any, YouTube video as proof that it wasn't there. Because I know what every Star Wars kid talked about, and it was nine movies. In the early 80s.

311 Grump, the answer to question #163 is "yes", but it is very difficult. You basically have to switch the races involved in certain areas during the Civil Rights movements of the 50s and 60s, but if you can show that it was intentional governmental conduct to prosecute only certain crimes based on legally-impermissible determinations, there is redress. Generally, you are getting at 42 United States Code section 1983, which has its genesis in the Civil Rights Act of 1871. That act allowed the President to suspend habeas corpus in fighting the Klan. Democrats are doing now what Democrats once did -- act in contravention of the United States Constitution in the same way. It'd be ironic to invoke that act again.

319 God shows his true face in the Old Testament. The New Testament is a rejection of God, who is neither merciful nor loving, but harsh, demanding and unforgiving. The New Testament was the installation of a younger, more hip, more palatable successor to the God of Moses. God's message is that failure to live well, failure to thrive, failure to procreate are the real sins. Moses was his truest prophet, and Democracy is the Golden Calf that Moses warned us against. We're about to have our civilization voted into oblivion by the dregs of society, the idle offspring of privileged elitists, and egotistical Marxist scum.

Be competent, be intolerant of perversions, of lies and liars, honor the memory of those gone before, and honor the future by refusing to be cowed by the the feral ferocity of those now tearing away at the foundations of our culture, our civilization. Marxism is the true enemy of Civilized men.

And I still think Star Wars' opening text was capped by the words "Episode IV: A New Hope." I recall being surprised by it when I first saw the film on its initial run. Now, it's possible I have it mixed up with a later release, or saw it on video. But I didn't even have a VCR to play videotapes until 1985. Perhaps when it ran on HBO in the early Eighties, the text was new there and that's what I recall.

The only way to tell would be to run a 1977 print of the film, if such a thing exists. Or to find a contemporary review or commentary about the film in a newspaper or something.

Posted by: Wolfus Aurelius at September 14, 2020 10:33 PM (rpbg1)

That is my memory as well. Then learned that it was the first part of the middle trilogy of Lucas' planned trilogy of trilogies. So it made sense for the "Wall of Text" introduction (like the preface in a book, setting time and place (literally)) to begin with "Episode IV".

I saw it in a little theater outside an Air Force base. Most of the crowd must have been junior enlisted personnel, as they cracked up when Leia told Han to get "into the garbage chute, flyboy".

385 Per this website, "Episode IV: A New Hope" was NOT in the original theater prints of Star Wars.

It only began appearing upon SW's re-release in April 1981.

Ah, the magic words. Full. Metal. Jacket.

One of my favorite movies of all time.

I'll never forget one time in the office, when I was a bright, shiny 1LT with friends of mine, one of who was a 2LT going for a master's in psychology. She very innocently asked, "Do you guys know of a movie that has a good depiction of basic training?"

Other LTs and the Captain with our group all looked at each other, unbelieving. We pretty much all said, in unison, "Full Metal Jacket". And the rest of the day was given to us all quoting the movie to each other all day long, more or less.

469 I was in basic when Full Metal Jacket came out. We heard about it from our Drill Sergeants. They loved that movie so much and I hope they didn't get too much inspiration from it. The quote I will always remember was one Drill Sergeant said it made Platoon "look like a pussy movie".

One of my favorite movies of all time.



I'll never forget one time in the office, when I was a bright, shiny
1LT with friends of mine, one of who was a 2LT going for a master's in
psychology. She very innocently asked, "Do you guys know of a movie
that has a good depiction of basic training?"



Other LTs and the Captain with our group all looked at each other,
unbelieving. We pretty much all said, in unison, "Full Metal Jacket".
And the rest of the day was given to us all quoting the movie to each

My cousin was a marine in vietnam during that timeframe. He was in that battle of hue. When the movie came out I made him watch only the beginning of the movie (didn't want to push it, he went through hell), and I asked if basic training was that bad. He said "yeah kind of, sometimes worse". Yeah, the worse thing stuck in my ears.

The one and only color episode of Perry Mason is running on MeTV right now. It was an experiment during the last season. While not the last episode of the final season, it was close to it.

Victor Bueno is the villain.

Had they gone another season, it was going to be in color, and this was a test run for it. But they didn't go another season.

I don't think I've seen one do this trick before. It's less than 2 hundred miles from shore, and the possible landfall zone is over 2 hundred miles wide still. It's moving at 3 mph atm.

567 Trying to ascribe logic or reason to suburban wack jobs is a fools errand. They are bugnuts crazy, after all. It proceeds along a spectrum. Their worldview is perverted, a result of years of programming and being worked over, guilt tripped, and more.

At best, they will perhaps be willing to sacrifice you and your family, and anyone else, in order to maintain their delusions, to keep their world view intact. "Your death before their dishonor" as it were.

At worst, I think ultimately they have a death wish, whether they are cognizant or not. They don't care, and will do nothing to protect themselves, and of course this means you shouldn't be able to protect yourself either.

Kicked her to the curb, said I'm fighting for custody, and she did not really put up any fight about it at all.

Abandoned the kids for a few years, until I moved to Denver where she was living, so my Kids could have some relationship with their Mom.

Sadly, the tracer will likely fail to ignite the fuel.

However. You can buy ten-pack of .762 (.30 cal) Raufouss projectiles on eBay. Reload them to the closest available data, and open up.

There will be a small explosion, and then there will be a bit of a fire. "Bit", depending on the volume of gallonage on that there back-mounted tank.

But it should prove adequate to the task.

Which, in an urban area? is scary.

The CIWS was BUILT to miss. Its an area denial weapon that is used against missiles.

700 Gaelic Girl, I think for a long long time, Southern California was almost entirely agricultural (where it wasn't entirely empty), and likely supporting San Francisco, which was one of the burgeoning great metropolises of the 1800s and early 1900s.

703 "Perfect" or variations appears 123 times in the KJV Bible. Most frequently in Job, Psalms, and Hebrews.

Psalm 139 is pretty good.

21 Do not I hate them, O Lord, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?

22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:

24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

704 The election if very close now and the idea of moving to many seems daunting. Similar to trying to get ammo, you see the idea of everyone in a crowded high rise trying to get threw a turnstile door at the same time.

I understand why many don't want to leave the place they grew up in, even if it is barely that place anymore. And also what comes will come. Sure if you live in the sticks it will be mostly something you see on tv or the net. But even those people are riled up about what is going on. Think of those who live in cities today. These people can't even safely put up a sign to support their candidate. Crime is skyrocketing and few are doing a thing about it. I feel bad for them but I also understand that many can't move or wont.

Let us hope for the best because this has to be the most made up schism in history. I am not saying there are not problems, but there have always been problems. What I am saying is there has likely never been less reason for people to be so divided. And there have never in this country been more elected leaders who don't give a damn about anything other than their own power.

Back when we used to talk about the Burning Times here, I predicted that the end game in the cities would be that gangs and militias controlled turf in a parallel government with the city, which did garbage and sewers and that soort of thing.

One thing I think many miss about the Gospels is that of course they were speaking to the world, but also that they were placed in an historical context. You can't ignore the historical context and think it was plonked down to fit every time exactly. The history of the time matters and what was going on then matters.

Three other things I think about when reading the bible.

It WAS filtered through the mind of Man. There are concepts we have today? That they did not even have the Language for.

It was also filtered through the MEMORY of Man. I know that its Holy writ, and Inspired by God, yet we KNOW that the text has been altered (things like, the commandment is actually 'though shall not commit murder' not thou shall not kill.)

Its also been reinterpreted over the Years. The view of the Bible today, is WAY different than say, the Crusaders, or the Inquisition, or even the pre 1900 view that it was Works that got you to Heaven, not intent.

So I'll admit, I'm a bit of a throwback as far as modern Christianity is concerned.

But then, I'm a throwback as far as Gay stuff, or other issues are concerned as well.

Private security only goes to so far, or at least the money to pay for private security only goes so far. Once private security is targeted, you can bet your bottom dollar that private security will unass the area ASAP, stating to those who hired them (quoting the minister in 'Blazing Saddles'): You're on your own.

Private security may be mercenary, but they are not stupid; they have a sense of self-preservation, too.

Never forget that Jesus fashioned a whip of cords, overturned the Moneychangers' tables, and drove them out of the Temple with that same whip.

Christianity is not a pussy religion. That cloak and sword admonition was not wasted words. No word that Christ uttered, were not serious and full of meaning.

And NONE of us have ever had what it takes to suffer the sins of the WHOLE WORLD of mankind, from beginning to end, on the Cross, and burn in Hell for three days as the Sacrifice, and then to defeat death, ascend from hell, Glorify our slaughtered body, emerge from the grave, preach the Gospel of Salvation and PROVE IT by our very presence, and then ASCEND into the Heavens to proclaim our Eternal Victory, over hell, death and the grave.

Because none of us were or have ever been without sin.

HE WAS WITHOUT SIN, AND IS, ALWAYS.

Holy writ, and Inspired by God, yet we KNOW that the text has been
altered (things like, the commandment is actually 'though shall not
commit murder' not thou shall not kill.)



Its also been reinterpreted over the Years. The view of the Bible
today, is WAY different than say, the Crusaders, or the Inquisition, or
even the pre 1900 view that it was Works that got you to Heaven, not
intent.



So I'll admit, I'm a bit of a throwback as far as modern Christianity is concerned.



But then, I'm a throwback as far as Gay stuff, or other issues are concerned as well.

I mostly don't get into theological arguments here as they don't seem to accomplish a lot. By that I mean arguments over who is right, Catholics, Lutherans, Baptists etc. I do enjoy learning about that stuff because it is interesting how things turned out. Not here, but so many Christians turn off study at all.

My personal opinion is the Bible was inspired by God and it is His word. Of course man played a major role. Heck, man decided which books got in and which did not. This should nor surprise imo as the Bible is God's Word to man.

I remember a class on the New Testament where the professor was a minister. You had several people object when he discussed the origination of various New Testament books. These will meaning kids objected to even the study of the books as history. Like I said, they thought of them as plonked down on the world from nowhere.

And yeah. There were rewrites and omissions. Most of these scribes were doing it by hand and by candlelight. They translated the verses from other languages. Man played a major role and that is historical fact.

None of this changes that it is is the word of God. But I never understood why some are so loath to study the history of it all. Then again, I guess I do understand. I can see people getting worried that bad actors would get involved. But history is history and it is part of it.

748 Never forget that Jesus fashioned a whip of cords,
overturned the Moneychangers' tables, and drove them out of the Temple
with that same whip.



Christianity is not a pussy religion. That cloak and sword
admonition was not wasted words. No word that Christ uttered, were not
serious and full of meaning.



And NONE of us have ever had what it takes to suffer the sins of the
WHOLE WORLD of mankind, from beginning to end, on the Cross, and burn
in Hell for three days as the Sacrifice, and then to defeat death,
ascend from hell, Glorify our slaughtered body, emerge from the grave,
preach the Gospel of Salvation and PROVE IT by our very presence, and
then ASCEND into the Heavens to proclaim our Eternal Victory, over hell,
death and the grave.



Because none of us were or have ever been without sin.



HE WAS WITHOUT SIN, AND IS, ALWAYS.





This is the Gospel, in a blog comment.



Do with it as you will.

agreed in toto. that is the whole thing really. He died for our sins and none of us are sin free. He took on the sins of the entire world, and no one else cold have done that. As Billy Graham said, "I believe in hope beyond the grave", and I do too.

751 He was talking about his disciples going out, to spread the word, but noted that the world is a dangerous place.

---

It's worth noting that Jesus is indicating a change in situation from the occasion He sent out 70, 2 by 2-that the circumstances of their journeys no longer applied, something that gets lost (deliberately, I think) today. The earlier section was the one where He sent them out as lambs among wolves and expected friendly housing to just be there when they arrived, for example.

I am a huge King James advocate, because I well know it's history, and can appreciate that it is far more accurate than it's critics allow, and because I am very adept at reading it's cadence, meter, meaning and word.

That said, Quint is exactly correct in his Pastor' appreciation of Version and text.

I started out on the Living Bible.

How I remained a Christian after that, is a Miracle.

But I did hand sew and carve and impress, the best leather Bible cover you'd ever seen, for that book.

I had skills, even at seventeen.

759 The KJV.

With a Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, and a W.E. Vine's Dictionary of New Testament Words, you will pretty much not go wrong.

Here's the problem with later versions in a nutshell.


1920s. It's cool, man, it's cool! (listener hands you a sweater).

Vernacular changes.

The King's English is fixed in IT'S time, and can be researched and fixed down to the meaning of the slightest nuance.

You can't do that with the fluid and ever changing English we've known since Colonial time.

Better that we reference a NOT CHANGING, time-frozen period of fixed meaning and nuance, and work up from there,.

By time a 2020 "translation" team completes their work, it'll be 2040, and the meaning of every word will have changed.

Buy a KJV, sir? It's only half priced!

At sea, if you have to rely on CIWS, the enemy is too close.

I like the tech for protecting important land sites. But we are failing in deterrence if we use those defenses.

Iran and Iranian forces should fear our retribution, even if all incoming missiles are stoped before impact.

It can be asymmetrical. How would Iran like all of it's forces in Yemen becoming US targets, in a much more forceful manner than today? That is one example.

many examples there really. The A bomb saved lives and people who don't know that don't know history.

The non historian Shelby Foote was wrong when he defamed USA troops by saying the "North" fought that war with one hand tied behind its back. He could not have been more wrong about that. And what a dumb thing to say when you think about it.

The worst thing is a long drawn out fight that solves nothing and only cranks up the body count. A funny thing about the Civil War. No troop every gave a damn about his leader's ideology, piety, or creed. All they cared about on both sides is that they would not be wasted. The goal was victory and nothing else mattered. You can be the nicest guy ever, but if you wasted lives for no reason, they hated you.

776 Piracy is a weird thing. I have been listening to the History of Rome podcast (mentioned before ad nauseam.)

The story about Pompey wiping out all the pirates in the Mediterranean inside of three months is nice.

The story about Julius Caesar getting captured by Cilician pirates is also fun. They initially asked for 20 talents of gold for him alive. He demanded they raise it to 50, then sent for the money to buy his own ransom. He refused to act like a captive but instead ate meals, joked around, and wrestled with them. He'd joke that when he got free, he would raise a force, return and crucify them all.

When the money came and he was freed, He raised a force, returned and crucified them all.

Caesar was an odd duck.

822 >>Has the hurricane done anything of note?


Outer bands have been hitting here for awhile. Rainy with winds gusting up to around 40 knots and scattered thunderstorms. It appears the eye will make landfall somewhat to the west. We're in Flood Zone A (property is only 9 feet above sea level) and under a voluntary evacuation order due to likelihood of flash flooding from rain combined with the storm surge and high tide.

824 Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investments in ERISA-backed pension funds were 43.9 percent smaller compared to an investment in a broader, S&P 500 index fund, after 10 years.

So the social justice whores are destroying their pensioners retirement to play footsie.

New rules will force them to be a fiduciary and prove annually they are investing for the best return and not playing games.

I saw some report on one of the financial news networks last week to the effect of a large ( larger than say, 30%) percentage of younger employees thought ESG concerns were more important than profits.

My first thought was, I'd fire every last one of them on the spot. You can pursue those goals to your hearts content, but not using my company. The corporation is not designed for this, it's the wrong tool for the job. It's like entrusting the education of our nation's children to the Teacher's Union. That's not what a union does and if you try to to make that work, you will get neither a good education or a good union.

Yep, I was also wondering why they've been keeping Kamaltoe under wraps, and then this morning I saw a report where she had done some interview recently and made a reference to what "the Harris administration" will do in office. LOL. Oopsie.

Guess now we know why we haven't seen more of her. She hasn't been properly trained yet in how to pretend that Joe is the Dim presidential nominee. Somebody is going to have to buy another box of training treats and start working overtime with Kammie. Apparently she's not a quick study . . . . .
