Peggy Noonan: A Thousand Days Late and 5 Trillion Dollars Short

I'm sorry, but are you effin' kidding me Peggy?

Something's happening to President Obama's relationship with those who are inclined not to like his policies. They are now inclined not to like him. His supporters would say, "Nothing new there," but actually I think there is. I'm referring to the broad, stable, nonradical, non-birther right. Among them the level of dislike for the president has ratcheted up sharply the past few months.

It's not due to the election, and it's not because the Republican candidates are so compelling and making such brilliant cases against him. That, actually, isn't happening.

What is happening is that the president is coming across more and more as a trimmer, as an operator who's not operating in good faith. This is hardening positions and leading to increased political bitterness. And it's his fault, too. As an increase in polarization is a bad thing, it's a big fault.

Uhhhh ... ok. You can read the rest of her reasoning, but, honestly, why bother?

I guess it makes sense if you believed the crap Obama was selling in 2008.

Oh, wait. Peggy did!

The rest of us, though, get to say "we told her so". Over, and over and over. And, not to leave out Iowahawk ...

But now, Dame Noonan declares "Obama increasingly comes across as devious and dishonest."

NO! NO HE DOESN'T! He's been devious and dishonest since day one, you idiot! You were just too stupid or starstruck or whatever to see it.

I mean, honestly, is anyone surprised by the race-baiting or any of the other crap we're getting from a "community organizer" who sat in Reverend Wright's "church" for twenty years and was a member of the socialist New Party?

Oh, screw it. I'll have what Peggy's having.

Note: I have asked Jack M., our resident expert on Dame Noonan, to add his thoughts. He is currently suffering from a severe watercress sandwich reaction but I hope to have his input as the election season progresses.

10 I lost all respect for Peggy and Krauthammer when, upon Zero's election, they immediately fell to their knees and offered him the use of their mouths as a jizz recepticle. Let me rephrase that, Krauthammer can't get to his knees, so he had mini bike wheels put on his wheelchair so he would be at a comfortable height for servicing da Zero. Hows that taste in your mouths, Peggy and Chuck?

the wake of Brown vs. Board of Education.

48 What a dumb bitch. Ace keeps telling people that they need to be inclusive toward the Obama voter, suggesting that a strategy of "you were lied to" is better than telling them they were idiots.

I have to disagree, they were and are fucking morons who voted for a far left wing cock sucker while deluding themselves into believing he was something else because of the color of his skin and his ability to read words off a fucking TelePrompTer that were written by someone else. This fucking dick sat in a racist church for 20 years, this cock sucker lied about every fucking thing he said during the campaign. He was going to take public funds, oh whoops fuck that he didn't, he was against forcing you to buy insurance when running against Clinton, the whoops again. He was going to cut the deficit in half, until his first bill added a trillion.

You are a fucking moron if you support this asshole and I have no respect for you.

67 34 and 42 have it exactly right. Why do you people want to make it harder for people to come our side? How does that help us exactly?

Think of it as a room. If a majority of voters go to the right side of the room, we win. Otherwise we lose. Last time we lost - badly.

Now, we who have been on the right side of the room all along are seeing a trickling of people coming over from the other side to join us. We need more.

Here's a brilliant strategy! Every time one comes over from the other side, let's say to them "Hey you stupid f*ck! You're such a f*cking idiot for ever being on the other side in the first place. Boy are you a f*cking moron." And if it's a woman, let's make sure to throw in some references to fellatio, or, hell, if its Krauthammer, let's make sure to reference his disability AND throw in a reference to fellatio while he was on the other side of the room.

Because, you see, that's going to make it more likely they come over to our side.

96 He is who we said he was.

A man of no achievements rises to the top with vague evidence of his past, his influences, his views. Most of what we know about Obama is what Obama has told us. And some people expect great things from him, particularly honesty and intelligence.

Sheesh. Gullible idiots.

"I think the fate of the United States will be Balkanization."

Probably, eventually.

The really galling thing about this trajectory is about Federalism. A finely-tuned system of Federalism among 50 different states with as little central interference as possible would have given the progs all the little socialist utopias they could populate (tough given teh ghey and rampant abortion,I know) but no - they gotta put their fingers in everybody's damn pie. Can't have a low tax/low reg state like TX showing up their opposite number in CA. Everyone's gotta pay. It's for the children, you know.

It's White guilt -- pure and simple. If Obama had been lilly-white from Iowa he would have been eviscerated by these same pundits who bent over backwards to avoid being tarred with the racist brush by the people who throw great cocktail parties on the beltway.

I'm not sure who I hate more...the unrepentent liberals who still support Obama or the Republicans who were afraid.

107 I remember reading an article of Mz Noonans prior to Obama's win, extolling the virtues of his articulation and wonderous abilities to grasp the imagination of all, Hope and change, and although she later endorsed McCain, well not good.enough.
Did any of us expect rocking anger and spitting rage at Obama from opinionaters? perhaps not, but how about the truth of His endorsement of Mr Wrights church of hate for years? how about using her skills to explain how His past activities might not have been a great idea as a Leader of the Free world?
we saw many extolled virtous republican commentators not defend the ideas of our group, but their infatuation over Obama 'gifts"

Communism is an inherently expansionist philosophy. As long as there is one neighboring State(country, whatever) that is not Communist, Communism requires the conquest of that entity. This is because- with very, very few exceptions, non-communist states are happier and richer than communist states. But Communism promises Utopia. But it can't be Utopia if there are people who have it better- so you have to conquer those people and subject them to the same misery as everyone else.

Real Federalism- staunchly and bravely defended- would spell the end of the Liberal Left in America- because it would be shown to be the complete fraud it is. Even with a strong central government, tramping on the rights of the States and the People, freer States put the lie to Liberalism.

NEW YORK – Visa and MasterCard warned banks of a potential breach at a US-based credit card processor, the Krebs on Security blog reported Friday.
"Sources in the financial sector are calling the breach 'massive' and say it may involve more than 10 million compromised card numbers," Krebs wrote.

138 Those odd noises lately must be Noonan's sphincter breaking suction from around her neck. You don't want to be anywhere around when her head comes flying out of her ass, though. There will be four years worth of backup flying all over the place. It won't be pretty.

139 This isexactly what the head ewok said would happen. People don't want to admit that they were suckered (or in Noonan's case, willingly seduced) since that would be an admission of their own failures. Deep down they know that they bought a load of dung, they just don't want to be told that. So, blame it on Jugears.

And IMO we should feed their ego, "Yes, you were suckered, but you know that you can make up for that in November."

181 "But what's more important? Masturbating your ego or winning in November?"

Masterbating my ego...but no seriously I don't think my opinion, especially when voiced on an Internet blog, is really changing anyone's mind. So that allows me to act and say wtf I want, to include calling Obama a cock sucker and anyone who voted for him fucking moron. If I really thought my dumb opinion would sway people to agree with me, but of course I would be civil and use big SAT words to make myself sound smart. There is no point in being civil with a leftist whose opinion consists of mouthing "I love Obama" talking points, or who disingenuously acts non partisan and then repeats like a fucking record every partisan lie like "Repubs wanna ban birth control lolz!". I simply reply in kind "Obama sucks cock and I don't care who the republicans nominate I'll crawl over broken glass smeared in feces to vote this fucking cock sucker out of office. You can care about fucking condoms dumbass I'll care about 4.25 a gallon gas and trillion dollar deficits. Btw you can't get laid anyway wtf you care about birth control for?"

But Peggy as of 2008 had on her resume advisor to past Presidents. She was in the same circle as National Review, whose David Freddoso put out "The Case Against Barack Obama". She had access to all the information we fucking morons in Ace's comments had. She's supposed to be smarter and better informed than we are.

Take some comfort for if truth/reality/common sense/decency was on their side they would surely use it. The near total lack of it in any of their approaches says they are hollow and bankrupt.

Peggy Noonan wrote one good speech for Ronald Reagan (I say good, not great, because she swiped the punchline from another, much better writer) and has turned that into a career. She's quite happy to slam conservatives, even Reagan, whom she now professes to revere (remember her quip comparing Reagan's mind to the Western Front). She's an establishment hack, pure and simple, with all the naivete and narrowmindedness that that implies.

So, *of course* she swooned when a sharply creased, nice looking African-American, with some Ivy-League degrees and a smooth mid-Atlantic accent comes along.

*Of course* she overlooked his utter lack of experience, his being utterly untested, his complete lack of accomplishment in any area whatever, other than that of getting elected to office.

*Of course* she ignored his boorish behavior during the campaign: his giving people the finger in public, his snide remarks, his paper-thin skin (remember his blow-up over the "New Yorker" cover - one that was mocking his enemies).

*Of course* she ignored his abysmal taste: the president-elect seal, the styrofoam Grecian columns, the huge portraits of himself, the choirs of children chanting hymns in his praise.

*Of course* she overlooked his promise to roll back the very oceans themselves: things beyond the power of mortal man, let alone a politician.

*Of course* she overlooked his radical background: that, by his own admission, his career was launched in the kitchen of a man who had helped to plant a bomb in the US Capitol.

*Of course* she ignored the fact that he is the product of the most corrupt political machine in America.

And now, she professes herself surprised that this untried inexperienced corrupt narcissistic ideologue is proving to be a four-star fuck-up as president.

Me, I'm not surprised: either at Obama, or at the cluelessness of that rube Noonan. But being a charitable soul, I say welcome to the party, Peggy. Though it took you long enough to show up.

on palin and 'what does she stand for'

yet she was bamboozled. hmm..


BHere is a fact of life that is also a fact of politics: You have to hold
open the possibility of magic. People can come from nowhere, with
modest backgrounds and short résumés, and yet be individuals of real
gifts, gifts that had previously been unseen, that had been gleaming
quietly under a bushel, and are suddenly revealed. Mrs. Palin came,
essentially, from nowhere. But there was a man who came from nowhere,
the seeming tool of a political machine, a tidy, narrow, unsophisticated
senator appointed to high office and then thrust into power by a
careless Franklin D. Roosevelt, whose vanity told him he would live
forever. And yet that limited little man was Harry S. Truman. Of the
Marshall Plan, of containment. Little Harry was big. He had magic. You
have to give people time to show what they have.

later...Because maybe they have
magic toout we have seen Mrs. Palin on the national stage for seven weeks now,
and there is little sign that she has the tools, the equipment, the
knowledge or the philosophical grounding one hopes for, and expects, in a
holder of high office. She is a person of great ambition, but the
question remains: What is the purpose of the ambition? She wants to
rise, but what for? For seven weeks I've listened to her, trying to
understand if she is Bushian or Reaganite—a spender, to speak briefly,
whose political decisions seem untethered to a political philosophy, and
whose foreign policy is shaped by a certain emotionalism, or a
conservative whose principles are rooted in philosophy, and whose
foreign policy leans more toward what might be called romantic realism,
and that is speak truth, know America, be America, move diplomatically,
respect public opinion, and move within an awareness and appreciation of
reality.

I will confess, on January 21, 2009 I sat back and said "Maybe this won't be all that bad."
After all, we managed to work under Clinton. Those of you who lived through Carter will say it was hard, but you're still here. Maybe, Just Maybe, things won't go completely belly up. There are after all, only so many possible ways to screw up, and even a untrained monkey throwing poop in the Oval Office could avoid most of them.
I wasn't happy, but I wasn't stressed either I figured I'd go about my life, maybe get angry here and there about a decision or an action....

Boy was I wrong. I mean how do you possibly hit on every wrong step? Not get one possible thing right? (Obama-philes will eventually remind me "He Killed Bin Laden, so I guess he got one thing right." But if we're to believe the actual nature of that interaction it seems more like his cabinent finally told him to STFU and do something.) Economy: Bust, Foriegn policy: currently being run by some French NATO guy, tranformative politics: Racist.
Politics are liars, I get that, but usually they'll tack center at some point to save their own hides, this SCOAMF just keep going down the strange "I can make them love me again with cheap photo ops!" hole.

228 Peggy Noonan still is being published??

That aside, there are three difference kinds of liberals out there: (1) young, airheaded student types (many of whom ultimately will grow up to be conservatives), (2) grown men and women who actually hold liberal viewpoints across the board, (3) men and women in perpetual states of arrested development, searching and yearning for acceptance and approval among what they fatuously believe to be the "more sophisticated" among us, but sometimes having moments of clarity, so to speak, during which they understand, however fleetingly, the absurdity of their ways.

The first category is self-explanatory. Those falling into the 2nd category suffer from what is tantamount to a severe mental disorder. Peggy Noonan and her ilk fall into the 3rd category.

For my money, in that respect, Noonan is the worst kind of liberal. Category No. 1 are just young kids, saddled by inexperience and immaturity. No. 2 are sick, sick people. Getting angry at them is like getting angry at schizophrenia patients. The willfully-ignorant tools in No. 3 have no valid excuses.

One thing I love about handguns is how few marksmanship principles there are versus long range rifle shooting, yet just how easy it is to miss at startingly close ranges if you let your attention lapse.

It's why I love movies where the bad guy is jumping off some object, prostrate in mid air - scoring perfect headshots on (presumably) well-trained federal agents in good solid stances who can't seem to hit the broadside of a barn.

252 I had an instructor tell me to put my left foot slightly forward and, for me, it helped a surprising amount.

If I had more experience (and, therefore, better 'muscle memory') that would probably work for me, too. But I found I needed the stability that squaring up provided.

there is some wisdom in presenting a smaller profile to the other guy.

Yeah, it being my first time, I'm not to terribly concerned with that.

It's like when I was taking martial arts (mostly tae kwan do, but I've also done some karate) they always start teaching you from a front-facing stance (usually 'horse stance' or something similar) you don't move to a "fighting stance" until you've mastered some of the basics.

I'm kind of going on that theory with my shooting.

"Your range probably won't let you"

Most indoor ranges won't let you do much more than stand still and pop off one round every 2 seconds max. That's fine for basic marksmanship, but God forbid you end up in a fight, the chances of squaring up in a perfect stationary isocoles stance, etc. are approaching nil. Moving your ass out of there is paramount. That's the real value in training classes and competitions like IDPA and USPSA. You learn to move and shoot under time pressure.

In re Peggy Noonan the whole "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" phenomenon - there's a really profound newpost, over at iSteve, about precisely this sort of thing:

LINK: bit.ly/H2Trmp

"Black women used to work as servile maids, and so whites decided to reward Oprah, an independent woman, with billions. But, her liberated role is really as a neo-maid. Good for nothing else, she massages 'white guilt' and makes whites feel good. She's indeed the most highly paid maid in the world.


And Obama is really like the black chauffer who is driven around by others. But he chauffers around white liberal guilt and self-regard as do-gooders.


Oprah's maidness and Obama's chaufferness have gone from the literal to the metaphysical. They don't actually practice those roles physically but still do so psychologically."

There are three possibilities to reverse the margin to defeat Obama in the fall.

1. Get somebody who didn't vote in 2008 to vote GOP, net +1

2. Get somebody who voted Obama in 2008 to stay home this time, net +1

3. Get somebody who voted Obama in 2008 to vote GOP this time, net +2

The +2s who are still on the fence at this point are a lost cause. The way to increase both categories of +1s is to demonize Obama and his supporters. Obama and his supporters can be easily demonized on his record alone.

And another thing: The "mushy middle" "independent" assholes who gave Obama the win in 2008 will not necessarily respond to nice. They are indecisive, waffling fucks whose fickleness is rooted in their fawning desire to belong. Defiance is not part of their makeup. These are the kinds of sheep who need to be bullied to figure out what to do next. The key to winning these pieces of shit over is to pick a scapegoat from among them and be merciless. Get the others thinking, "I'd sure hate to be that guy," and they'll stay at home or vote against Obama. Be hard enough on the scapegoat, and I'll bet he goes Stockholm Syndrome on you.

280 Peggy Noonan has to defend her columns at the elite cocktail parties and when the alternative to Obama was George W or the TEA Party she could not because the elites can't conceive that someone could be a good person and support W or the TEA Party. The same goes for Santorum or Gingrich. Romney, however, is a person who the elites can at least fathom that a good person might possibly support, so that provides the opening for Noonan to abandon Obama and not be shunned at the elite cocktail parties.

The range I went to offers classes ranging from their "Basic Handgun" to a CHL class, up to a "Defensive Handgun" (or something like that) class. Their range is also good for pistols and rifles (on guy had an AR-15 he was shooting while I was there). They apparently allow shotguns, but now they charge an extra fee for that.

I truly believe that Joe Biden will be the last one to turn off the lights. From ABC news:

"Vice President Joe Biden today assured a group of campaign donors in Wisconsin that Republican criticism of President Obama’s leadership style doesn’t match up with what he’s witnessed firsthand.
“I’ve watched him make decisions that would make another man or woman’s hair curl,” Biden told the crowd of 150 inside the Italian Community Center in Milwaukee, according to a pool reporter on scene.
Biden, who has said he’s the last man in the room with Obama before a tough call, often attests that his boss has a “backbone like a ramrod.”
And today he said that mettle — and the “serious problems” Obama faced upon taking office — put the president in a class of his own.
“I think I can say … no president, and I would argue in the 20th century and including now the 21st century, has had as many serious problems which are cases of first-instance laid on his table,” Biden said. “Franklin Roosevelt faced more dire consequences, but in a bizarre way it was more straightforward.”
The vice president claimed that the complexity of the 2008 financial crisis presented challenges in a way the Great Depression of 80 years ago did not.
Biden also discussed the decision by Obama to authorize a covert raid into Pakistan to kill or capture Osama bin Laden, noting that nearly the entire national security team — including Biden — advised against the raid. Obama made the call anyway.
The only one on the team who agreed with the president, said Biden, was then-CIA director Leon Panetta.
“Nobody but one person in that entire apparatus said go,” Biden said."

True. I got about 10 minutes of basic instruction (for free, no less) since I was a first time shooter. I practiced that stuff on the range, too.

At the public range (I think they have a private one for their classes) the answers are: probably, no, no, and yes. There's not room to go prone or move laterally, I don't think they'd know or care if you shot through a jacket, though, and they don't check your ammunition- you can bring and shoot whatever you want, ammunition wise.

===================]
No, not yet. But, she is still on the tail end of the "how do I rationalize what I know is stupid and wrong but I want to do it anyway" phase.
Between years 2 and 3 of the JEF, she would post stuff critical of him and of Democrats in particular. But, there has been a subtle shift in the last 4 or 5 months. You wouldn't know it unless you were actively suspicious of her. Perhaps, it started with her notion that the JEF really wanted to lose on Obamacare because she calculates it'll be a net plus for him as he can spin it to a campaign point. It really accelerated over the Fluke's Love Hovel business where she got out in front of that and made a point to howl that the GOP was mean and wrong. But, removing any doubt was her post about the JEF's response to Treyvon--some bullshit about how "he'd look like my son" was shrewd, thoughtful, "just the right tone" and careful for a response.

Yes. That [spit] one is going to vote for the JEF. She has already decided that, she is just looking for a proper fig leaf.

"I saw this motherfucker coming a mile away- I will never understand why so many supposedly 'smart' people did not"

Again, read that new post over at iSteve - it was tailor-made for skirts who think with their c*nts, like our Ms Noonan:

"Black women used to work as servile maids, and so whites decided to reward Oprah, an independent woman, with billions. But, her liberated role is really as a neo-maid. Good for nothing else, she massages 'white guilt' and makes whites feel good. She's indeed the most highly paid maid in the world.

And Obama is really like the black chauffer who is driven around by others. But he chauffers around white liberal guilt and self-regard as do-gooders.

Oprah's maidness and Obama's chaufferness have gone from the literal to the metaphysical. They don't actually practice those roles physically but still do so psychologically."

To me, the big question is whether this ENTIRE PHENOMENON was intentionally engineered [by the likes of the Frankfurt School, and their allies in the media the financial world academia] precisely so as to get skirts like Noonan all wet between the legs.

"Black women used to work as servile maids

So did white women, scrunt. The most commonly known form was the "Irish girl" in the northeast in the 19th century, but that's how my grandmother paid her way through high school in the early 20th century: cleaning a rich family's house (and burning the toast just the way her employer's husband liked it, the story went)."

My mom (who's second generationJapanese, Nisei) cleaned houses to pay for college. My dad (also Nisei) was your stereotypical Japanese gardener and in ROTCto pay for college and grad school. They were also interned at Minidoka during WWII. I grew up to believe that no one ever owed me anything and if I wanted to succeed, I had to work hard and be willing to do whatever it took to achieve.My parents drilled into me that nojob was beneath me (my worst job ever was as a nurse's aide in a nursing home in college, I cleaned up a lot of poop and changed a lot of soiled beds). I am sick and tired of people using race or the subjugation and mistreatment of their ancestors to entitle them benefits today. I am also fricking sick of people demanding "justice" for the past egregious sins that America committed. If these asshats hate it here so much, they need to return to their countries of origin and see how well off they would be their ancestors not been enslaved.

"So did white women, scrunt."

Right, but the Frankfurt School and their allies in Hollyweird didn't just spend the last century lionizing the white women who worked as maids.

Rather, they spent the last century canonizing the likes of Hattie McDaniel as "Mammy".

And my gut is telling me that the entire phenomenon was a very carefully groomed century-long exercise in PsyOps, by the Frankfurt School, precisely so as to groom the wet-between-the-legs reaction in skirts like Peggy Noonan when confronted with theemergence of aBarack Hussein "Sidney Poitier" Obama.

Which is to say: My gut is telling me that all of this was planned a good 75 or 100 years ago, but some very - really profoundly - evil psychiatrists and psychologists in the Frankfurt School [and their allies in Hollyweird and in the financial sector and in academia].

But the folks in the Frankfurt School have no more regard for the best interests of Black Americans than they had for the best interests of Ukrainian Russians, right before they instituted the Holodomor and murdered 10 million of them.

You just cannot misunderestimate quite how evil these people are.

We're talking Peter Singer, calling for the institutionalized murder of infants, and Ezekiel Emmanuel, calling for the institutionalized murder of old people.

They are the most evil people who have ever walked the face of the earth.

Which, again, is why my gut is now telling me that they - very quietly and very patiently and very stubbornly - spent about a century inculcating Americans in this bizarre psycho-sexual milieu within which a Peggy Noonan would get all wet between the legs at the sight of the emergence of a Barack Hussein "Sidney Poitier" Obama.

They all got out of camp, stopped going to Japanese school, assimilated, and strove to get educated (why there are so many Japanese professionals like doctors, dentists and engineers). My parents never talked about it. We didn't even know about it til my older sister, who was in 12th gradecame home from school one day. She had a lesson about it, and she asked my parents if they knew anyone that was everinterned. My mom and dad just kind of looked at eachother and said "Why do you want to know that?"

There was real loss too (my dad especially experienced tremendous hardship because his dad was in the import/export timber business and worked for a Japanese company, so he was thrown in prison for being a spy, my dad's mom committed suicide because she thought that she had said something incriminating that got her husband sent to jail, my dad initially went to an orphanage and then his Uncle and Aunt took him in right before they went to camp).

It's funny, but the children of those who were interned (my generation, the Sansei) are the ones who made it into such a big deal. Their parents never talked about it, but they are the ones (and they are pretty much a monolithic block of Democrats) who are organizing Minidoka reunions and memorial services.

I've used a .22 for "keeping the edge" for years. It's cheap and does just as well as shooting something ( my .45ACP) that eats expensive ammo.

Don't worry too much about home intrusion in my particular area, the possibility exists, but the probability is quite slim. So unless tshtf, I rely on keeping the Colt on the bedstand, loaded.

But I WOULD be keeping the Ithaca with the slug barrel handy if it were necessary.



Not a big worry for me, either...a would-be intruder would be set upon by a 75lb. bully-dog who takes no prisoners, giving me ample time to decide if I should use the .357 or the .45ACP to finish the bastard off.

But just as soon as the Blacks are no longer useful to the Frankfurt School, they will be dumped like so many hot potatoes, and the Frankfurt School will move on to some other group of tools: Homosexuals, or Mexicans, or maybe low caste [dot-not-feather] Indians?

I like the home security model.


Replacement barrels sound like a good idea... until you price them. For a relatively inexpensive shotgun like a Mossberg 500 or 835 (I have both) the barrel costs damned near as much as a new gun. I think I paid less for a used Mossberg 500 slug gun (with scope) than what a new rifled slug barrel cost.

There are a number of cheaper plastic parts like the trigger guard in the lower-end 870 Express 18" HD model, but it's still a hell of a lot of awesome for $300 at the Wal Mart gun counter.

Again, it was due to their "Bushido" culture--you fight til you die, you do not surrender. The Japanese could not comprehend this "surrender" stuff. They were completely unprepared for it. They viewed those who put down their arms to live another day as truly shameful subhuman losers. The rates for surrender amongst the allies vs the Japanese were a lot higher too.

Of course, there was absolutely nothing wrong with nuking cities and killing enemies during war. But the nukes didn't even do nearly the level of damage that firebombing 60+ wooden cities before that accomplished - rightfully so. War is hell and the Japanese deserved every bit of pain and death delivered to them and their population.
Of course, WWII was ended more successfully than any war in history, with our most implacable foes being turned into our strongest, most trustworthy allies for over half a century ... which certainly does away with the whole "win hearts and minds without killing enough of them" idea to rest.
Nothing has ever "won the hearts and minds" of the enemy like total destruction and an uncompromising occupation. We had to kill the Japanese with abandon in order for THEM to feel okay surrendering (unconditionally) finally.

473 American submarines unfortunately killed a large number of US and allied
POW's.The Japanese never announced the movements of course which I
believe they could have.In one case the POW's were slaughtered as they
tried to escape the sinking ship that the Japanese successfully
abandoned.They also liked to chop off the occasioinal head.Use you for
bayonet practice.One poor B-29 crewman was vivisected,alive.No one was
punished for that either.

President George H.W. bush was almost eaten by the Japanese. He was shot down after bombing the island of Chichi Jima. The wind and tide blew his raft away from the island instead of toward it. U.S. aviators who were blown toward the Japanese held island were eaten by the japanese, not out of starvation but just to prove that they were badass, partly in enacting a Japanese idiom. James Brady's book Flyboys is about this incident.

LOL. They would have wanted to, butit would not have been likely to go beyond fantasy. It takes more than a mean attitude to win wars and kill people off. The Japanese couldn't even consolidate their gains in China. They couldn't spare anything to attack Russia. They were a second rate power all along, and would have remained so. The cultural changes that allowed them to excell in quality and technology were a result of defeat and occupation. Without the humbling and pummeling they got in WW2 by the US, they'd have continued in their arrogance as before.
The Japanese were never going to go beyond Asia.

Remember that the Japanese didn't even really want a war with the US- they were hoping that Pearl Harbor would be a crippling strike, and that we would cow before their all-to-evident might.

Morimoto tried to warn them otherwise, but they didn't listen.

The problem with being an aggressive power when you're stuck on an island the size of Japan is that your potential conquests will outnumber you- and eventually those numbers will win.

There weren't as many of them, and it wasn't done by Executive Order (for those with as little as 1/16th Japanese blood).

537 "I think the fate of the United States will be Balkanization."




That is how the world is going and the US has been obsessed with importing enough of the world into the US so that we are as stupid and insane as the rest of the planet. Leftists can't stand the US being the only sane nation around.

The World is still ethnically organized everywhere except for the West and has always been. To compound problems, the idiot West not only refuses to acknowledge this, but turns around and presses it with their idiotic notion of "self-determination" for every ethnic group that thinks they need a flag and their love of ethnic transfers to carry out the West's public denial of the existence of ethnicism as an organizing principle when every single thing they do works towards that goal ... except for what they do to the West, itself.

World tribalism is coming to America and there will be no avoiding it. Whites, being so tired of winning, will let themselves lose until a reaction is absolutely necessary and then the shit will really hit the fan.

In fact, she HAS said that she and her husband think Mitt Romney not only ought to be President, but will potentially be one of the great ones. She actually *did* write that.

And yet people here are now proclaiming that she has openly proclaimed her commitment to voting for Obama. Why? Because they want her to fit into a predetermined narrative they have about swing voters. And women, I suspect.

I am not in any way supporting the internment of American citizens. It is possible that the decision was motivated by something other than racism. I have more than a few friends that are naturalized citizens and nearly all of them are rabid Americans that would probably be to the right of most around here, however, there are some I know that do have a sense of conflicted loyalty. there are also a lot of people that see American citizenship as a tool or a convenience and have a primary loyalty to another country. it is not unreasonable to be worried that a population might have conflicted loyalties.

Saw that the lawsuit was ongoing but haven't heard anything else. Recently a lawsuit by Louisiana was dismissed in Federal court: They were suing because since Barry's Commerce dept has taken control of the Census illegals are counted as citizens for purposes of Representatives in Congress; Louisiana lost congressional seat because they have a lower population of illegals whereas Texas gained Congressional seats because of their porous border and growing illegal population. That this is not a source of extreme outrage is beyond me. Legal citizens are losing their Constitutional right to representation as illegal citizens gain more representatives in Congress and the challenge is being denied. Why is this not a huge story? Why?

Like it or not, there's this GREAT MASS OF VOTERS out there -- some call them "independents"; you and I use less flattering names -- that need this explained to them. And no, Peggy has been very consistent since 2009 in criticizing how BO has handled this job that, apparently, was way tougher than he thought going in -- something else she's reminded people of many times.

Here's the thing you younger morons don't get: Barack Obama is BLACK, therefore he is being held to a different standard by the media and a great many "middle" voters. Racist? Of course! Welcome to The Real World, 2012 Edition. Or haven't you heard/seen all the racist crap that's been swirling around the "Trayvon" story?

We have a job to do, which is DEFEATING BARACK OBAMA, and p****ing all over a fellow conservative will not help our cause. Whether you love or hate people who don't think exactly like you do doesn't matter; WE NEED THEIR VOTES. To get those votes, somebody needs to explain to them that it's OK not to vote for the Black Guy this time, which Peggy does better for that crowd than anybody else out there. If you don't get that by now, you shouldn't be blogging about politics. (I had assumed the "moron" tag used so freely on this site wasn't literal.)

BTW, free speech is a powerful thing; use it responsibly. Otherwise, the next time someone likes you goes calling someone like Peggy an "idiot" -- someone who actually worked in the White House, who knows the political game better than anyone in the MSM today -- some old guy will have to seek out that person and kick his skinny-runt ass all the way to Burbank.

Meh. It's WAY safer than driving.


And look at it this way - if the plane crashes, you're probably either going to walk away from it, or else (more likely) be translated immediately into your eternal reward. The odds of surviving with paralysis or dismemberment/crippling are far lower. Big win, in my book.

615 "...but in a bizarre way it was more straightforward.”The vice president claimed that the complexity of the 2008 financial crisis presented challenges in a way the Great Depression of 80 years ago did not."

So FDR took a simple problem and dicked around with socialism for two terms while makingthe problemworse. Now Lightworker has a way more harder problem to solve, and he wants to...dick around with socialism for two terms...at least?

"I agree. the funny thing is zero does not care about african Americans either, they are just a tool in the box."

Exactly.

And neither does Moochelle.

That make-work bribe-job she got at the UChicago School of Medicine was designed to keep the ghetto blacksout of the UChicago system - to funnel them into lesser-quality government clinics -so thatthe paying customers wouldn't have to rub elbows with them.

Immanuel Kant [to his credit]had a thing or two to say about this - this idea of using other human beings as a means to an end.

626 For those readers/commenters still contemplating shotguns, I present 2 pieces of information.

1. The BoxOTruth website consists ofmany firearms tests. Onetest is firing buckshot through a rifled 12ga barrel. The result was a pattern about 18 " in diameter (the "Donut of Death") ... at 5 yards distance. 15 feet is roughly the diagonal distance acrossmany living rooms to the front door, so th epattern would miss most body armor, but still hit the target. The only problem is that buckshot is 9 (or 15) almost-.32cal projectiles, and with a pattern this wide, they will cover a much larger area. Be certain of your target.

2. Always use a stock. Firing birdshot from a 12ga equipped with 1 or 2 pistol grips is ... your choice ... , but firing a stout slug round is doubtfully possible; firing a second may be impossible. But with a real stock, I suppose the limiting factors aretargets, ammo, and personal pain tolerance. Also, there is merit to swapping the original stock out for a youth stock ... there's room for an additional recoil pad, if you chose, and if you wear body armor, the (shorter) youth stock restores the original length of pull ... and if you get one with overmolded rubber, the grip is quite good.

632 608maddogg - redundancy, esp. orthogonal, might increase "complexity" but it reduces chaotic outcomes. Personally, I won't be comfortable flying until the pilots are the last resort and can't do anything until all of the machines have failed.Posted by: Jean at March 30, 2012 12:29 PM (WkuV6) Jean, my philosophy in design is simplicity is reliability. Would you like to see triple redundancy in your combat weapon? Your life depends on that weapon so reliability is paramount. Weapons which are reliable enough to stake your life on are invariably simple as possible. The AK-47 is a good example. It has one major feature, reliability. It is crude and unrefined and it lacks convenience, but reliability it has in spades. That is my argument. I contend that triple redundancy is there for public relations. We would be better served by aircraft which is designed for maximum simplicity and reliability. Single systems which are simple and robust as possible. Just my opinion. As a side note, double ignition on single engine piston aircraft are not there for reliablilty, the engines were designed in the 20's for the most part, and the combustion chambers are too inefficient to work well without dual spark ignition.

645 Noonan's only claim to fame was that she was on staff as a Reagan speechwriter. She wrote two great speeches for him but was also responsible for George H.W. Bush's "read my lips, no new taxes" line that pretty well gave the WH to the Dems when he ran for re-election after raising taxes. She's been a member of the GOP Cocktail party for years now and is about as conservative as Olympia Snowe. Hell, I wonder if she trying for a job on Romney's staff?
