Just doing some light reading. Here are some stats to consider:

Nixon the only vice president to come back and win the Presidency without directly following his President's term.

We haven't elected many VP's in recent history, with HW essentially being elected to Reagan's third term, and Nixon only winning it after sitting out most of the 60s and coming back as essentially a new candidate entirely from the Eisenhower VP who ran in 1960.

Meanwhile Gore, Mondale, Humphrey, Nixon in 60 all lost in the 20th century, and two other VPs ran in the 20th century and never even won the nomination (both FDR VPs, one who lost at the convention to FDR and one who ran for the Progressive Party).

There simply aren't that many VPs to win the white house, certainly not when you exclude John Adams and Thomas Jefferson (who were VPs before the "ticket" rule was put into effect). After Jefferson, the next VP to win was Martin Van Buren, who won off the popularity of Andrew Jackson (much like HW). After that you have to go all the way to Nixon in 68, and then HW in 88, neither of whom won under circumstances comparable to the present moment (Nixon ran as the change candidate, against a limp opponent, with Vietnam crushing the White House, and HW won by promising more Reagan-like governance).

I don't see Biden being another Nixon. I don't even think he's another Gore.

If anything he's another Mondale.

We're in Florida, and she's a strong Trump supporter, but she has been worn down by the constant attacks on Trump (and by extension, people like her). She's been talking like (I'm paraphrasing), "maybe there's no point in voting. Maybe if Biden wins, all these attacks will stop, at least for a little while. I'm so old I probably won't live to see the worst, anyway."

She's been talking like (I'm paraphrasing), "maybe there's no point in voting. Maybe if Biden wins, all these attacks will stop, at least for a little while. I'm so old I probably won't live to see the worst, anyway."

I'm working on her, but we could use some prayer support!

After the Soviet Union fell, the US found out that it had a liquid metal cooled reactor, a very innovative design that allowed for a great deal of power to be generated by a fairly small generator.

It's amazing. I don't know why anybody would drop several grand to go to Disney World when this is so much more fun and so much cheaper. At Knob Creek you're surrounded by people who DON'T hate you for loving America.

Yeah. That's Dumas.

Fun fact - His father was the first non-white European Brigadier General (his mom had been a slave in San Dominique). He and Louverture were the highest-ranking part-African European officers in history until 1975.

Alexandre Dumas was a quarter African (explains the hair). The way we define race now that made him black, blacker than a lot of American blacks. He is, without a doubt, the most famous black author of modern times, perhaps ever. But they don't teach kids that because it might make the West look less racist.

More than that, the world knew that he was black - his father had been quite famous, his name is on the Arc de Triomphe. And yet horrible racist white people bought and loved his books and made him rich and famous. Whooda thunk?

Daughter did fine although she got a little flustered when the clerk at the courthouse took longer than expected to find her registration. She practiced filling out sample ballots for the past 2 weeks. We all voted straight GOP, by the way. Trump has 3 more votes from our household in the bank that he didn't have last time.

We were kinda disappointed to discover that they are not handing out "I Voted" stickers this year because of WuFlu, I think daughter really wanted one of those. Then we went out to lunch to celebrate her first vote....

Posted by: NaCly Dog at October 16, 2020 10:34 PM (u82oZ)


I mean....kind of depends on how you're defining it. Portugal had a military coup back in the '70s that pushed the country towards a more democratic government. Then I guess there was Austria under Chancellor Dollfuss in the early '30s; he became semi-dictator after crushing the Socialists in Vienna, and was doing a pretty decent job until the Nazis assassinated him.

But it's pretty hard even for "consensual" elites to provide benevolent government for everyone, so I can't imagine you'd find many cases of those.

386 Hi everyone. I just want to mention something. Joe Biden is pathetic, the Democrat party is in disarray, Trump is strong--

But China is in a big economic crisis. China cannot afford to lose their influence in the US. They cannot afford to be the USSR during Reagan.

China has to rule the US. They NEED this, and they will spare nothing to bring it about.

So, vote Trump, shun those who insist on voting "Biden" (China).

That is all. Vote Trump.

390 The price on that Alfa ain't bad, considering the entire hull is a Titanium alloy.

*sigh*

Problem being, there's no way to smelt-out the radioactive isotopes that've saturated every cubic inch of the damn thing.

Soviets weren't especially generous with the shielding in their nuke sleds on the high seas.

Don't know if they still build to such a sloppy standard, but those subs could be loosely tracked by satellite, just by the isotope trail that would come roiling up to the surface in their wake.

And yes. A submerged sub lays a cone-shaped wake behind it, with the upper part of the cone eventually breaking the surface, even many minutes after the sub passed that point in the ocean.

And the Soviet's boats wakes included that wee bit of detectability as a special, added bonus.

The same has reportedly been true of Icelanders for centuries. Small gene pool = teh wimmenz are tacitly encouraged to grab any foreign DNA that happens to wander through.

It's even mentioned, in a veiled manner, in Jules Verne's "Journey to the Center of the Earth". Depending on which translation you get, it's more or less clear that the Icelandic farmer's wife was including more than fermented shark meat in the "hospitality" she was providing to her "guests".

In the USA, we are used to thinking of pumpkin as a sweet treat for the most part. Pie, cake, pumpkin spice everything for coffee, donuts, tea, whatever.

In Australia, pumpkin is a savory food and when we were there a few years ago, they thought serving pumpkin as a sweet treat was odd.

What I found odd was going there in the spring, after suffering through a long northern winter, and discovering it was fall. Nooo....

One of the Clancy tomes contained the postulation that when a deep sub's hull fails, the resultant water-hammer moves so fast and compresses so instantly, that the air itself inside the hull "diesels", and flash burns for an instant before the water overcomes all.

It was said that this all occurs in about 1/3000th of a second.

The Thresher crew certainly knew they weren't gonna make it. But they never knew when it happened.

There is a small mercy in that, at least.

As far as the Glomar Explorer, even though that sub suffered a catastrophic hull failure, there was one crewman in a small, sealed technician's compartment within the sail. Autopsy and other proofs found with him showed that he'd lived some number of hours after the sinking, dying of asphyxiation as the oxygen was no more.

Alone, in the cold and total darkness. That would kind of suck.

My Dad earned his Dolphins aboard Fleet Class boats, served on Guppies, Fast Attack (Snook, Scamp), and Polaris (John Quincy Adams, Gold Crew).

He'd started his career as a Baker's Helper aboard the USS Valley Forge, and "enjoyed" the famous "U-Turn" which put that ship as First to Respond to North Korea's invasion of the South.

After his first enlistment, he separated from the Navy, went home to South Carolina to get his G.E.D., and re-enlisted. Got into Sub School, and never looked back.

Retired E-7 or 8, ICC Interior Communications rating. Basically, everything between the reactor itself and the control panels and gauges.

Post retirement, he had a long second career with the company that *became* Litton Laser Systems. Retired as Senior Prototype Test Engineer.

Not bad for a High School dropout out of Starr, S.C. (he did earn is Associates of Electrical Engineering while with Litton, by the way.)

514 "I would love to hear them too!"

Operatsiya Dipshit, a secret Russian nuclear warhead program, was accidentally disclosed during the fall of the Soviet Union in 1989. Dipshit was a human-piloted ICBM re-entry vehicle which pre-dated the adoption of NAVSTAR global-positioning guidance in Russian weapons designs. Pilots for the program were selected from cadres of the smallest volunteers, since the warhead cockpit was estimated to be no larger than about 0.75 cubic meter. Some pilots had legs amputated to be able to fit the vehicle. The program was abandoned when, after numerous tests, no shielding was found sufficient to protect the pilot from the frictional heat of atmospheric re-entry.

523 They think the Scorpion went down because of a defective battery in a torpedo that "went hot" and was running, and when the boat turned, the torpedo blew up.

That's one of the possible reasons. Wiki lists two other variants of a torpedo problem, plus hydrogen explosion and malfunction of trash disposal unit.

The only firm conclusion the Navy could come to is that a cataclysmic event (explosion) resulted in uncontrolled flooding, most likely the forward compartments.

I had to read about the Thresher incident.

The initial theory was that a brazed point joint failed, causing flooding in the engine room, which led to a SCRAM, and then ice formed on strainers in the air lines for emergency blow-off.

There is detailed acoustic recordings of everything, called SOSUS data, which remains classified. In 2013, some experts were able to go over that SOSUS data, and they dispute the brazed pipe joint theory.

This report says what happened was a bus powering the reactor coolant pumps failed, causing loss of coolant, which caused an immediate SCRAM. He says there was no flooding at all, saying there were no sounds in SOSUS consistent with flooding.

The blow off air lines iced.

Thresher imploded at 2400 ft, 400 ft below predicted crush depth. The implosion event laste 0.1s. The crew would've died instantly, before their senses could've processed anything. Mercifully.

(a)In determining the meaning of any Act of Congress, or of any ruling, regulation, or interpretation of the various administrative bureaus and agencies of the United States, the words "person", "human being", "child", and individual", shall include every infant member of the species homo sapiens who is born alive at any stage of development.

(b)As used in this section, the term "born alive", with respect to a member of the species homo sapiens, means the complete expulsion or extraction from his or her mother of that member, at any stage of development, who after such expulsion or extraction breathes or has a beating heart, pulsation of the umbilical cord, or definite movement of voluntary muscles, regardless of whether the umbilical cord has been cut, and regardless of whether the expulsion or extraction occurs as a result of natural or induced labor, cesarean section, or induced abortion.

(c)Nothing in this section shall be construed to affirm, deny, expand, or contract any legal status or legal right applicable to any member of the species homo sapiens at any point prior to being "born alive" as defined in this section.

Then those same men will complain bitterly about how the ex-wife or girlfriend cheated on them and screwed them over.

It was OUR tech, licensed to Toshiba, with the STRICT provision that they not re-sell it to ANY ComBloc nation, for ANY reason at ANY price.

Another interesting thing about Thresher. The guy who found the Titanic wreck, Dr. Robert Ballard, actually, top secretly, surveyed the Thresher and Scorpion wreck fields. The search for the Titanic was actually just a cover for the primary mission.

He wanted to find the Titanic, of course, but his primary mission was surveying the Thresher and Scorpion wrecks, or what was left of them.

There was some FOIA request, and just now, of Sept. 2020, the Navy is going to start releasing Thresher data.

Yeah that seemed obvious to me from the start and others have pointed it out. It's the strategy that Breitbart explained to O'Keefe. You release a little bit and they deny that. Then you release more to catch them in the lies of their denials. Release it all at once and they'll just discount the entire thing. Piecemeal release and you can potentially get them caught in a lie or multiple lies.

Thats for sure. Too many friends hooked up with the crazy ones. I never made that mistake. I blamed them, not the chicks. They knew what they were and they did it anyway. We were actually on the steps of the church begging this one dude not to do it. He was the bass player. Picked her up one night after a show, that should have been a clue. Test drive? Sure. Marry? We should have knocked him out and kidnapped him. lol

683 Speaking of subs. I've been reading about WWI, and it appears Germany was weirdly reluctant to press their huge advantage and the element of surprise before the Brits had anti-sub measures. They could have taken down all of GB's trade. Same with gas when they introduced it. Same with the initial campaign in the West. Anyone notice this?

697 653 @Tom Servo, I'm not 100 percent sure on the "persons." The thing is, the Constitution excludes "Indians not taxed," in other words, citizens of foreign nations who are inside our borders. Indians didn't become citizens until the 1930s, IIRC. But illegal aliens who pay taxes maybe wouldn'tfall under that provision.
Posted by: Caesar North of the Rubicon at October 17, 2020 12:52 AM (jK8Z7)

Congress rewrote all of the sections dealing with Indians early in the 20th century, and so those provisions don't apply anymore. I'm not sure if I was clear, but as was done with changing everything about Indian status, Congress and the President working together to change the US Code can make huge changes without amending the Constitution, and the SCOTUS will uphold it. However, if any President tries to make these changes without the support of the Congress, the SCOTUS is almost certain to overturn it, because the Executive branch on its own does not have legislative power. (that's why many of the Lockdowns are finally being overturned)

and the only real reason for alerting people to this (since of course my opinion means nothing to the Court) is so that people on our side have advance warning that even a Conservative Court is very likely to go against Trump on this one. And it won't be a sign that they are all going "liberal" when it happens. I'd even go so far as to guess that Trump already knows this, but he wants to get the political credit for fighting against it, even if he loses this round.

whenever Congress gets on board with him, I think he can win.

700 Hi Horde, I still consider it Friday, so happy Friday to all of you. Sitting here ruminating tonight and I believe more than ever that Trump is going to win this thing in spectacular fashion. We are witnessing a significant schism within the Democrat party, particularly within the various voting blocks that have traditionally been their bulwark. This year I feel that many African-Americans are going to pull the lever for Trump, a new class of black leadership has arisen and they want a seat at the bargaining table, if they don't do this, then they will be left behind while the Hispanics replace them. Another Trump term holds enough promise of wealth, prosperity and personal happiness for them that the Democrat party has not provided in fifty years. Joe Biden has been sent out to the used car lot for the classic bait and switch sales technique, too many voters are not going to buy it this time.

705 Man, I HATE working in the media. This whole year has been a massive downer. If I could give advice to my younger self, I'd say, "self - don't go into media. Yeah, I know you're liberal NOW, but that will change, and when it does, the tiny paychecks will no longer be subsidized with a sense of moral superiority."

I don't know if I'd be happier in some other line of work, but I'm certain I'd be better compensated. I kind of wish I'd pursued my high school obsession with cars and racing and custom hot rods.

I mean, the media has always been liberal, don't get me wrong. But it was different when I was starting out. There were standards, ethics - there were things you just didn't do. That's all gone out the window in the past decade or so. I was reading a wire service story today on Trump and I kept thinking, "my J-school professors back in the day would have flunked the shit out of me if I'd turned in this kind of garbage." Sigh.

Big staff meeting Monday, kind of ominous. I am sort-of-but-not-really hoping they announce we're shutting down and everybody is fired. I mean, on one hand, I NEED this paycheck. On the other - man, it would be so liberating not to have to work for the devil, you know?

I don't know, but it seems unreasonable that Toshiba just had to have that tech. They could have gotten by without it. So the Russians probably convinced Toshiba to acquire it so the Russians could buy it from them. Toshiba likes money and they probably have some commie symps too.

It is a little enraging that Russia and China would not be serious threats if it wasn't for companies selling tech and rampant spying. We are too nice to our enemies.

That Titanium Hull wasn't a thing for no reason.

Same reason the Antonov A-124 out-lifts the Lockheed C-5B. The Antonov has a Titanium Load Floor, which is about 1/2 the weight of aluminum, but with the strength of tempered steel.

For a real story, dig deep into how the U.S. and Lockheed "spoofed" the Russians into selling enough Wolfram Ore from which Titanium is refined, so as to allow our building of the A-12 and SR-71 aircraft.

And subsequently, the F-14, with it's huge Titanium "Hinge Box" that made the whole airframe possible, in the first place.

I have a Taurus Model 85, .38+P rated, "J frame" equivalent revolver. Total Titanium variant.

They stopped making the '85 Titanium about 10 years ago.

It was a $400 gun in 2005. It's a Thousand Dollar gun, today.

Precious. Metals.

Pity the radioactive Alfa. No one will be able to USE the salvage of that hull for ten or twenty thousand years.

742 The five possibilities.

1. It's a lie. Boy that Trump. Totally made up. The beauty of it is that it is exactly what everyone was thinking to explain Biden and Hunter. To "one the nose" though, I'll admit.

2. It's fake. Boy those Russians. Brilliant. The computer repair guy must be been a sleeper agent, and there must be dozens of people who look just like Hunter in Russia who they could have used as actors for the photos. Risky, but Ivan wins either way since if it is believed they can threaten to reveal it and so control the Trump admin, and if it fails it makes Trump look like an idiot. Not their style though - they tend more toward spreading poison over half the city when they try to do a hit, but maybe they studied up on spy shit.

3. Biden Crime Inc. is the smartest and most capable organized crime group ever to be able to keep this thing under wraps for 48 years. Yikes, They must have super smart lawyers, and cutouts, and maybe even a secret island lair. I'll bet the dumb and senile thing is even an act like that NY crime boss who used to walk around the village in his PJs. Everything they did was perfect. Well, except for making a crack head the key man. Well nobody's perfect.

4. The US Intelligence community is beyond incompetent. I mean these must be the least curious, least connected, least informed people on the planet - no wonder they spent four years trying to set up Trump - he looked like an easy kill. For all this to be going on and for them not to even notice. No leaks from insiders, no investigations of unsupported wealth. No curiosity about howcome all these politicians also have such talented families that everyone is willing to pay them billions.

Oh, and not just the US IC, but other nations. Taiwan, Korean, Japan, Australia,... I mean they all have people in China and yet none of them knew. Or at least none of them told anyone in the US IC. I am sure if they had warned them the FBI would have been all over it. Sure there were a lot of leaks about Russia, but they would have needed two files to keep all that straight, so I can understand ("true", and "shit we made up".)

5. They are all in on it. Every motherless bastard inside the beltway either gets wire transfers from the CCP once a month, or they are under threat of indictment (like Trump.)

Peter Switzer has written 2 books documenting Biden corruption i in the last few years.

He knows about the Biden family interworkings.
He has no learning curve.

He will be a source of Biden corruption reports the next few days.

752 I voted today and it went well. The line lasted about an hour and a half but I was prepared with packable camping stool, some water, and a new phone to mess with. Luckily there was good conversation with the people in line. Pro Tip here, engage and many turn out to be interesting, regardless of their politics. Second tip if you know they are libs, don't mention politics lol. There is so much else to discuss, such as when you first voted, the voting rules over the years, etc.

We had a drive by with a mini pro Trump caravan and they shouted at the line. It was pretty funny really. The chance anyone was going to change their vote was zero as we all know.
I timed it well as I checked the lines out when the early voting started. On the first day, the line took 5 hours. A lot of libs wanted to make a statement imo. They were fired up and it went off on day one. Tomorrow is the weekend so I expect long lines again. Of course all of this depends on where you live.

I bet most of of here think voting should be done on election day. That is the way I have always done it even when I had an excuse to absentee vote. But the rules this year are what they are, we can't change that at this point. I am glad to have my vote in as you never know in this world.

Not if, like Epstein, Biden doesn't kill himself. Then I assume Heels Up would become President-Elect. After the inauguration, the who knows who the majority will be in the House and the Senate will be voting on whomever Harris nominates for Vice-President. It is a majority vote in both chambers and could be quite contentious. I say this as prior to Harris' inauguration, the VP slot would not be vacant.

He needs to have the better ground game. The Left controls the media. Not just the news stations, but the entire media. You want to hear anti Trump stuff every five minutes, then watch Comedy Central, TBS, or pretty much any other cable channel. They are so all in this time it makes 2016 seem like they were fair. The question is do enough people reject this browbeating. In general, it is hard to get a majority to go against the flow.

The polls have already beclowned themselves. And national polls mean little since that is not how the electoral system works. Does Trump need the best few weeks of his political life? Sure, he does, you have to run through the tape and leave nothing on the sideline.

I can't predict this as I am not a poll expert. But the key is having every possible Trump voter fired up enough to not just go to the polls, but to bring friends. After that, it is about keeping it fair. Like Rodney Dangerfield said in Caddyshack as he shoved some cash in the referee's hands, "keep it fair"

If there is little cheating, and we have a good ground game, Trump should win.

I'm not so sure the Electoral College votes for President can go to Kamala since she's not running for President. I don't know this for certain.

But if the Electoral College can't give a majority to anyone, the House chooses the President. The current House (I think). Which would then likely be Kamala.

Posted by: Doof at October 17, 2020 04:13 AM (mZUr4)


First off, under the 25th Amendment, both the House and the Senate, by a majority, vote to fill a vacant VP slot.

"Section 2: Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress."

Now I'm assuming that means a simple majority out of 535 or 268.

Now you do raise an interesting point. If the Electoral College votes cannot go to Harris if Biden is dead, then the House would vote for president. Each State's House delegation gets one vote and right now the Republicans actually have the edge. After January 1, who knows? IIRC, the Electoral College doesn't vote until sometime in mid-December, so that would be the earliest point the House could settle the election. Odds are, though, nothing would be settled until after January 1, with a new House and possible change in which party's state delegations have the majority; I can't see Malignancy Pelosi calling for a vote on who would be president with a losing hand. The presidency is not vacant until January 20th, or thereabouts.

802 Reading the text of the Twelfth Amendment, if the House chooses the President, they can't go "off the board" - they must choose from the list of people who actually received Electoral votes. Which means Two Scoops would likely be the only other eligible to be chosen if Joe wins then steps down before he's inaugurated

814 I work 4-9's. Used to work 4-10's for another company, which not-so-slowly morphed into 5-11's, with occasional "Oops, we really meant 4-10's."
About the time it started being steady 5-12's, I decided I needed to find another job.About the time it started adding the occasional 16-hour shift, I did.

These days, this current company occasionally says "You know, you could switch to 5-8's if you wanted?" and I'm quite emphatic I don't want. I like my shift, and I see no need to lose a day off with my darling man just to make a full 40 hours. He's already had two heart attacks on me, and no amount of paycheck can buy an extra minute with him. I'll make more money later; I'll enjoy his company now.

Believe it or don't, there are about 400 Arab soft porn sites.

What they can't have , they really want and will pay for.

844 Paris VA is quaint as all get out. If i recall, it is high end horse country but also they have some 4 star B B's and restaurants in that area.

The OG Paris is a beautiful city, at least it was. I can see someone going for a few days and not getting it. Sure there are bad areas, jagoffs, etc. But when I say it is a beautiful city, I mean that literally. The city layout itself is beautiful. There are not many cities that can say that, but I know there are many I have not seen.

London, for example, is not beautiful. Rome for sure it not beautiful. Both of those cities have amazing sites, architecture, ruins, etc, but they are not beautiful cities. Washington DC has overall attributes that would have been considered beautiful at one time. It is a mess now but the layout was pretty nice.

847 Seeing the comment from Bob from NSA above reminds me of a story. And yes, I might have told it to you Morons before.

Eldest Botch progeny was nearing graduation, major in math, and one of the recruiters that visited campus was from the NSA. (I don't know whether it was Bob or not.) Young Botch attended the presentation, and during questions a student asked how to contact the NSA if interested or wanting more info.

The NSA guy said "Just mention my name in a phone call. We'll be in touch."

An lol gag, true or not.

Back when I ran a bunch of web servers, I had an Iranian customer, and it was during 9/11 years, so it was probably against sanctions. But he paid me 300/yr to host his site so I wasn't complaining. They had to pay through some roundabout way to get money from there to here.

Anyway, it was a vbulletin forum site, and looked pretty innocent. Packed full of Iranian men, with photoshopped pictures of themselves surrounded by flowers and shit, trying to look "loving". I checked the site a couple times, of the thousands I hosted, and it looked gay AF to me but apparently surrounding yourself in flowers and writing in alien abduction characters, backwards, works well over there.

We didn't either when I was growing up. What pisses me off about seat belts is that the market would have won out the population on their use. Instead, we were forced by the government to wear them.
