6 Suntori is getting advertising in return for supporting Japan's space effort. There is no science to be learned about whether whiskey "mellows" the same in space as on Earth.

Wine continues to age in the bottle. Whiskey ages in the barrel and stops aging when it's bottled.

But good on Suntori for the stunt.

21 So I noticed last night that all the financial reporting was "oh, this is just a blip, don't worry, everything is fine," blah, blah, blah.

But I noticed yesterday that the Dow had lost nearly 2000 points since May. We're in a 3 month continuous slide. That's what makes me nervous.

Even with all the funny money the Fed has been pumping into the economy, we've been falling pretty steadily since May and no one is reporting on that. Yesterday, it seems, only made news because of exactly how bad it was- and if there's a rally today to erase most or all of those losses, we'll be treated to "happy days are here again."

But that won't erase 3 months of losses.

22 Now, aging whisk[e]y in oak grown in space...that would be worth looking into. The wood would have a unique cellular structure. But gravity, humidity changes, and heat ranges are pretty big factors in aging, and those are things you tend to avoid in orbit.

Wood will have a role in space someday. Probably cheaper to hydroponic wood fibers than to smelt comet dust. Win a beer bet? The Mercury heat shields were made of sintered cork and oak. By Studebaker.

30 AllenG , sorry response got willowed--

And you can thank the big corporations just as much as the government
for a lot of that. Big corps like big regulation - it limits
competition.


AllenG yes this is what I was getting at, poorly.

There
are always trade-offs. I think TFG was blathering talking points and
buzzwords as usual when he called tax relocation "unpatriotic".

There
is a certain point , though where the government does have an interest
and receives a benefit. That benefit , which is not the 'duty' of the
corporation which has been pointed out, will either be in employment of
citizens, or in some other mutual interest.

It is not the duty
of a government of the people to provide fraudulent and foreign cheap
labor to corporations and a Wall Street machine to launder all that phat
government-corporate cash.

Taxes may hurt little guys but the big players (donors) more than make it up on the other side.

73 Yeah, but somebody needs to explain to The Donald the concept of "punching down," and why he should stop doing it.

It does not (yet, at least) seem to be hurting him, so why should he stop doing it?

The last Republican President, and last two Republican Candidates refused to "punch down," and look where that got *them*.

Seriously, might either of the last two elections gone differently if McCain or Romney had been willing to be combative with the Media? What if, when asked, "What about your gaaaaaaffs!?!" Romney had replied, "So, how do you like the taste of Obama's cock?" (Well, okay, not that specifically, but something along those lines)?

I can't help but think that a lot of the outrage is that Megyn Kelly is (in theory, at least) on "our" side. But I don't think Trump sees it that way. I think Trump believes all the Media is going to be against (or at least not 'for') the Republican candidate (whoever that is), so it's a good idea to set the ground rules early.

Now, you can agree with that or disagree with that, but I don't think this is "punching down" in the way it used to be used.

82 Are your emoticons implying that's wrong? I thought you were smarter than that.

In any meaning that is worth communicating, yes it is wrong.

Yes, all speech has cost. So do breathing, eating, pooping, and everything else we do every day.

Yes, all speech has consequences. So do breathing, eating, pooping, and everything else we do every day.

But that is not what they're trying to say. They're trying to sell self-censorship under the guise of "kindness." They trying to say, "Oh, if your words hurt someone else's feelings, then you said a bad thing," even if you did not, in fact, say a bad thing.

They are trying to build a culture wherein the only allowed speech is explicitly value neutral (things like ordering food- though, not wrongfood like Chick-fil-A), or explicitly "approved" by some ever-changing standard.

Yes, Rutgers has every right to do that on their campus as a private entity. And I have every right to point out that it is stupid and hypocritical for them to so do.

To believe that "all speech has cost and consequences" in the way they mean it, you would have to believe that one should self censor comments like, "Man, that movie really sucked!" Because, you see, that movie *might* be made by a feminist activist, or gay activist, or the protagonist might be black or hispanic, or maybe the producer is pro-Trans. And your comment "Man, that movie really sucked" is really just furthering the power of The White Cis Patriarchy to keep minorities down, and not a statement on whether or not the movie was any good.

FYI - the GOPe spin du jour is that, while Trump's statements on Latin anchor babies are white racist nativist dog whistles bring out the Neo-Nazis, !Jeb!'s statement on Asian anchor babies is quite reasonable and deserving of support.

Similarly, the complaints by La Raza Inc will be block quoted, while the complaints of Asians will go unmentioned.

And if you point out this inconsistency, you will be blocked on twitter. or unfriended or something.

And so the DOPe will burn itself to the ground rather than even contemplate that Trump might be popular, or that the proles might want some actual representation (yes, those are two distinct statements- Trump will likely not "represent" us better than anyone else, and worse than some).

In many ways, this is politically-active Conservatives version of Sad Puppies, or GamerGate. The Wrongvoters with wrongthoughts want finally to have a say in what goes on in the party which claims to represent them. And, just like with GG and SP, the Truvoters with Goodthoughts would rather burn it down than concede one inch of territory.

These are the same GOP operatives that destroyed true conservative candidates like Chris McDaniel, Matt Bevin, and Milton Wolf.

If Trump wasn't in the race, they'd be telling us that the "true conservatives" like Cruz and Walker are "too extreme" and we need to support an "electable centrist" like Jeb, Rubio, or Kasich.

120 It does not (yet, at least) seem to be hurting him, so why should he stop doing it?
_____________________

Don't get me wrong, I'm not suggesting that Trump shouldn't be combative with the media. He was right to call out Kelly for her hostile questioning of him during the Faux "debate." But having won that skirmish, why is he still trashing her now? It makes him look petty, and it makes her more sympathetic.

I'm all for Trump, or any other non-leftist candidate, bashing the clearly-biased media when they're acting as Dim flacks. But once you've scored your hit and made your point, you move on. You don't keep pummeling the person.

If Romney, during the debates, had called out Candy Crowley and asked her why she was spinning lies about Obama's post-Benghazi statements, that would have been great. "Hey, Candy, how is it that you happen to have a transcript of Obama's Rose Garden remarks in your hand right now? Who in the White House have you been co-ordinating with to try and make sure Obama's talking points are spun in his favor here tonight? And say, if you're going to refer to the transcript, why not read all of it out loud, so the American voters at home can hear the full context of Obama's remarks?"

But then, after having made his point, if the next day Romney was sending out tweets saying "hey, didn't I make that fugly bitch Candy Crowley look like a fool last night? Did I teach that fat cow a lesson, or what?" -- that would have been going too far. Maybe Crowley would have deserved it, but it still wouldn't be the right thing to do.

Most Americans, especially conservative Americans, want their president to behave with some degree of dignity. And continuing to attack a person after you've bested them just isn't dignified.

158 Trump's little flame wars get him tons of free press. That's why he does it.

Turn on Extra! tonight and see if they don't talk about him for 10 minutes.

Sure it's not presidential, but he's playing the game he knows the rules to.
____________________

I get that, and it's fine if he wants to just continue being a reality t.v. celebrity. But if he really wants to help solve some of this country's very serious problems, he needs to start acting like it. He has a platform now that he could use to great advantage -- both his own, and his country's. Stop talking about what a bimbo Megyn Kelly is and start talking about how many murders and rapes illegal aliens are committing each year in the U.S., or how many hundreds of billions of dollars they're costing us every year. That's what got voters excited about Trump in the first place -- his willingness to tell the truth (some of it, at least) about the scourge of the illegal alien invasion of our country, being aided and abetted by our own corrupt government.

The thing, though, is that if the GOP had actually demonstrated even a modicum of courage and non-treachery once in a while, almost everyone would find Trump's behavior appalling. But their constant capitulation makes his temperament attractive to so many.

VA GOPe up to it's old tricks:

Amid mounting concerns about Donald Trumps candidacy from the GOP establishment, Republican leaders in at least two states have found a way to make life a lot harder for him.

The Virginia and North Carolina parties are in discussions about implementing a new requirement for candidates to qualify for their primary ballots: that they pledge to support the Republican presidential nominee and not run as a third-party candidate in the general election.

The procedural moves are clearly aimed at Trump, who pointedly refused to rule out a third-party run during the first GOP debate.

That is true for you (and me, for that matter), but the fact is that Trump is looking better than the GOPe to many people.

His rise started when he told the base, and other people, for that matter, what they had been dying to hear on illegal immigration while the GOPe had been trying to shove amnesty down their throats. He seemed to be concerned with what what they thought in contrast to the national party. Being human, this has endeared a lot of people to him and will color their attitudes towards his actions.

The fact that he never backs down is also a big thing for people tired of having their politicians fold if someone on the left or in the media (BIRM) sneezed.

It is what it is.

221 But then, after having made his point, if the next day Romney was sending out tweets saying "hey, didn't I make that fugly bitch Candy Crowley look like a fool last night? Did I teach that fat cow a lesson, or what?" -- that would have been going too far. Maybe Crowley would have deserved it, but it still wouldn't be the right thing to do.

226 >>Couple of things, Trump probably, maybe doesn't tweet himself. Probably some media person on his team. However, Trump keeps him on there so he must be doing what he wants.

He doesn't. The night of the debate, tweets were coming out from his account literally all night long and then he went on Fox at 7 am. He either doesn't sleep or doesn't do his own tweets, at least not all of them.

Trump is a showman and this is part of the show for better or worse.

PPP's new New Hampshire poll finds Donald Trump in the strongest position of any poll we've done anywhere since he entered the race.

Trump laps the Republican field with 35% to 11% for John Kasich, 10% for Carly Fiorina, 7% each for Jeb Bush and Scott Walker, 6% for Ben Carson, 4% each for Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio, and 3% for Rand Paul. Candidates falling outside the top ten in the state are Rick Perry at 2%, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, and Rick Santorum at 1%, and Jim Gilmore, Mike Huckabee, and Bobby Jindal all at less than 1%.

232 All the Bond movies are "virtually" parodies of the novels. If someone made a serious version of Just The Plot, you wouldn't recognize the character.

For instance? In Casino Royale, Bond pukes from fear. Won't see Craig do that.

Having said, take out the soundtrack music and the surreal intro sequences, and you have entirely different movies. Musically, the novelistic Bond is forever in 1953: his favorite song is "Vie en La Rose," and he likes Rosemary Clooney. Now, those are tasteful choices, but, not John Barry.

I'll make this simple. I. Don't. Care.

Kelly was auditioning for her next gig at ABCCBSCNNMSNBC and got rightfully smacked down. She deserved everything she got. And more, because Fox is (though I know it's not) supposed to be "on our side." If Kelly wants to act like Candy Crowley, then the punch back needs to be twice as hard, as a certain dog-eating Indonesian crackhead once said.

250 I don't understand why Trump chose to run in the GOP in the first place. He's a political free agent, and if anything he leaned more toward Democrat policies/positions during his decades in the spotlight. I suppose he thought the media would give him no traction if he was running against Hillary, Liz, Bernie, etc. so rather than start as a Third Party candidate he figured he'd start with the GOP.
He's not a stupid man, he knows about Primary eligibility/participation rules, and that States will defend their systems against "outsiders". Presumably he didn't think he could just steamroll over every State organization in the country by force of his snark. Let's see if he's able to actually deal with NC and VA or if he just screams and yells as his time winds down and his name disappears from ballots.

Yeah. Why post that shit article in the first place? Trump phobes don't attack his policies since they want to avoid discussion of those topics, because they are dishonest shitweasels.

So instead they attack his person. But whatever they say about him is invariably more applicable to his opponents.

Power of fucking positive thinking? How about HOPE! FORWARD!

And then we get gratuitous insults:
"At what he has called the "lowest point" in his career (he has since reached new lows, though perhaps he hasn't noticed)"

If the Trump phenomenon doesn't give them a clue, they probably can't be made to see reality.

Fifteen years ago, he'd have fit in on the moderate wing of the Dems. Now that they're on a headlong charge to the left? Not so much, to be honest.

Trump's a sign of several things beyond his own ego here. Many of the "moderate Democrats" who've been wiped out over the last five years need a home, and if they banded together with the Trump folks, it might just become a viable grouping. It wouldn't be conservative by any stretch of the imagination, but it might act as an alternative to the increasingly insane Obamacrats.

No doubt there is a lot of anger and rightfully so. I, like many others, think Trump is useful in providing space for the guys I would like to see actually win, Walker is my favorite so far, but I don't want Trump to win because I honestly have no idea what he would do and I don't think anyone else does either.

Posted by: SH at August 25, 2015 10:26 AM (gmeXX)


I wouldn't say that. It has a number of Governorships, and controls more legislatures than it has in a while, but that too goes away.

Voting, by necessity, trails trends. The more people are convinced the Gope Party in Washington is welcoming illegals to come in and take over their states (and they are), the more those voters will reject the Party.

Or to put it another way, how do you define Party strength? By number of seats held, or by how coherent its philosophy of governance is, and how closely its actions mirror that philosophy?

300 You'd think one of the elites in the party would figure this shit out.

If the elites in the party were in any position to make that adjustment, they would have long ago and Trump would never have become what he is.

Trump is an inevitable result of the changes in what passes for our two parties. He, or someone like him, was inevitably going to combine a certain skill set with populist positions and start running wild. You can't get this out of sync with a large swathe of the people and not have this happen.

312 @288 Excellent. Really enjoyed the character "Junius DePont" (the fellow Goldfinger was ripping off at cards). He's the one who bought Bond perhaps the most memorable dinner in that photo-essay, stone crabs, thick toast.

The beginning of that novel has Bond on a BOAC flight, looking out the porthole and speculating what size holes the passengers would leave if the plane came apart in mid-air. Considering the DeHavilland Comet was large in people's minds at the time (it was speculative, for a couple of years, whether a jet airliner would ever work), this was kind of touching. Another Bond self-doubt, not in the films.

He felt kind of bad about killing "The Mexican." In the movies, he just smarts off.

This might have been true during the week after Trump entered the race, but is no longer valid. Everyone with a pulse would realize that any candidate taking those positions now would be squishing it up at the behest of his "team."

Like Cruz's pathetic "record" in the Senate, what is, is. And it can't be undone. Whoever tries to appeal to Trump's supporters will look like an unprincipled fool. For most, that would be expected, but not necessarily appreciated.

315 Whats interesting about the Monmouth poll is that Carson has very broad support across all ideologies, and also that Bush (spit!) is well behind the leaders in the muddle just behind "undecided". He's in third place in NH and well back of the pack in Iowa.

Which is why the establishment is worried. More than anything including having their anointed candidate, they want to win.

I actually do too. Call me crazy but I don't want Hillary or Biden even if the alternative is not my favorite.

117 The gas tax was last increased in 1993. I didn't know that. Given it's 22 years later, it's not that crazy to raise it again, since it was never indexed for inflation.

325 I would not think less of Cruz if he adopted more of Trump's stronger immigration positions, because he's not too bad in that department. If anyone else were to do so, though, I'd recognize the opportunism right away.

Posted by: logprof at August 25, 2015 10:51 AM (vsbNu)

326 Right after Labor Day, if you believe Monica Crowley, Biden jumps in the race. He obviously hopes Hillary has to leave it to fight going to prison, making him the de facto nominee.

He's a lying scumbag and while I think he epitomizes all that I cannot stand about the fake Democrats and the thoughtless way they are trying to kill America, I have to give him some credit: fortune is his friend this year, and that fact alone can carry a candidate a long effin way.

Posted by: MTF at August 25, 2015 10:51 AM (LISuA)

327 So, now, thinking Trump is an asshole -- an asshole who supported single-payer healthcare and used eminent domain to steal land from old ladies, to name two things at random -- is somehow proof of "derangement" syndrome, and support of Jeb.

Um, OK. So, quick question: how much are you astroturf posters getting paid?
