Overnight Open Thread

So I saw in the news today that the Justice Department Is Probing Widespread Stimulus Fraud. Really? Stimulus fraud and the DoJ is looking into it? No way! Based on the article, they are only seeing the tip of the iceberg. They're focused on a teeny tiny bit of a mere $48B of the stimulus that went to existing highway and transportation projects. I'm sure most of these funds went to all those stupid signs.

Here's one that they should take a look at. Company That Received $1.96 Billion in Stimulus, Gets $1.3 Million Grant For Employees Laid Off Because of Stimulus.

A Colorado-based consulting, engineering and construction firm, named CH2M Hill, was awarded nearly $2 billion from the stimulus to perform cleanup work at the Hanford nuclear site.
The company used those funds to hire roughly 1,300 employees.
They then inflated the hiring numbers by using a Department of Energy metric known as "lives touched", which allowed them to boast that the stimulus helped somehow helped or 'touched' three-and-a-half times as many people as they had actually employed.
When the stimulus funds ran out, so did the ability to support the jobs created or lives touched. Roughly 1,500 employees were laid off.

And lets not forget about the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund - Education Fund part of stimulus (around $100B total). Just go to Stimulus Watch and click on the tab most expensive. You'll see Education Fund grants as among the most expensive and all they really did was prop up existing school budgets. Now that most of those funds are gone and the additional $10B authorized by Congress (Education Jobs Fund to pay K-12 salaries) in August, 2010 will expire on 30 September, 2012, states will have to beg for more, raise revenue or make some cuts.

Spitfire Flies Again

I've always loved WWII fighters and the Spitfire was among my favorites so this is a great story. A bit expensive, but awesome none the less. Battle Of Britain Spitfire: Restored After 40 Years. With the way the Brits are slashing their defense, this Spitfire just may end up as their sole air defense fighter!

B-52

Speaking of old planes, the last B-52 will have rolled off the assembly line 50 years ago. There are only 77 of those bad boys left but we're gonna have to rely on them for a few more decades. The B-52: Still Evolving. Man and I thought P-3's were old.

Vanilla Ice Cream

Just in time for the summer! Vanilla Crisis Could Force Up Price Of Ice Cream. Damn those evil vanilla speculators. Oh and climate change too. And screw those evil ice cream companies (yeah you Ben and Jerry) and their profits and those tax credits they claim that offset the costs of making ice cream.

Analysts fear the price of the spice is on the brink of explosion amid concerns of a shortage of the commodity.

The combination of poor harvests in two of the worldís main producing countries and opportunists stockpiling supplies is already causing a surge on commodity markets.

Honey Sex

What? Warning: Eating honey may give you side effects that may require emergency assistance if they last more than 4 hours. Israeli Health Ministry Warns Against Dangerous, Sweet Lubricant.

Israel's Pharmaceutical Crime Unit discovered the tasty item, available in pharmacies and natural food markets, and sent samples to a Jerusalem laboratory, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Scientists tested the "Honey Sex" and discovered the chemical Sildenafil, known as the active ingredient in the erectile disfunction drug Viagra.

The Health Ministry is warning Israelis against using the sweet stimulant. Consuming "Honey Sex" without consulting a medical professional could lead to heart problems or other side effects, the government statement said.

As an alternative, curious individuals who don't strictly follow the laws of Kashrut might consider Baconlube, a savory sexual lubricant with smokey pork flavoring.

Doggeh Humor

The Flying Car

Well, the Terrafugia Transition made it's debut at the NY Auto Show and while it's a nifty piece of transportation, I don't think it'll sell like hotcakes. I mean, not everyone has $279K to blow on a flying car that uses premium gas. Now if they can make one that is like it was from Bladerunner or something, that would be cool.

Big giant penis statue posted above the fold on his ONT. Thread got pulled. No one provides any real explanation and Truman basically says "bye" in the next thread. 1000 comments later rdbrewer shows up and says that he has not been banned. And that someone snarking on taking 1000 comments to get any information is whining. And I'm wondering if anyone told Truman that no he hasn't been banned.

Honestly, I can't tell if he was joking or not.

ONT thread went up that had a funny title (which I guess was possibly interpretable as 'racist' because it happened to juxtapose with a photo of MLK) and also had a picture of a park in Asia that has large - VERY large - phalluses. The pic was above the fold and NSFW (imo).

But I don't know that either of those things had anything to do with Truman saying 'goodbye.'

64 Ah, the old geek favorite: a Star Trek/Star Wars Who'd Win argument.

Short answer: depends on who the writer is.

If it's George Lucas, the Death Star blows up the Borg, one heroic young Borg vows revenge, hooks up with a motley crew of sidekicks, gets all weepy about his absent Borg daddy, and eventually blows up the Death Star by ignoring everything he's ever been taught and just, you know, going for it.

If it's Gene Roddenberry, the Borg assimilate the Death Star, and their newfound technological power makes them an even bigger threat, until a heroic starship captain makes them a stirring speech and we learn that we can live in harmony with our enemies.

106 Q One other question. Today is the opening round of the Augusta Masters, and the question of whether the all-male Augusta National Golf Club should admit women refuses to go away. Of course, tomorrow is ó the White House is hosting a conference on women and the economy. Whatís the White House stand on this? Should the Augusta National Club admit women to become members, especially now that youíve got the CEO of a longstanding sponsor of the Masters, IBM, is a woman, and her predecessors have all been admitted?

The question comes out of nowhere, but Carney is ready with an answer that is guaranteed to make news on one of the major memes that the White House is pushing: That it really really cares about women.

MR. CARNEY: Well, the Presidentís answer to this question is yes. He believes ó his personal opinion is that women should be admitted.

Q Do you think weíll be hearing him stating that before Friday?

MR. CARNEY: Well, I donít know that ó I happened to have a discussion with him about this, so I know that thatís his answer. But itís obviously up to the club to decide. But his personal opinion is that women should be admitted to the club.

109 Thanks, Y-not. I'm really surprised NRO let it be published. What were they thinking?

NRO did NOT publish it.

Once again, National Review did NOT publish it.

Derb has been writing about race on "Taki's Mag" for a little while now. If you look at his stuff, he's been doing his racial discussions there: http://www.johnderbyshire.com/Recent/page.html

Derb has probably been ignored by the NRO guys for some time. He was all-in with the Ron Paul love years and years ago (~2007) and that's when I'd had it with his little podcast.

Frankly, NRO should have let him go when he went to write for Taki. That's where the Buchanan/Sobran crowd is and they should have known then, or at least kept their eye on what he wrote.

BTW, for those who don't know (he wrote it in his piece but if you choose not to read it) his wife is Chinese.

I realize that all the East Coast centric "experts" are picking the Yankees....but they are idiots. No one in the American League has better starting pitching (1 through 5) than the Rays. And if Mo Riveria all of sudden starts throwing like a 40 year old reliever, yikes. The Yankees will make the playoffs, only because A) the League added a 2nd wild card B) they get 18 games against Baltimore and C) they will score a ton of runs. But then they will lose the 1 game playoff against either the Angles/Rangers and ESPN will go into full crisis mode.

142 Okay, I'm going to go over this for those of you who don't watch the news. Yesterday, a couple was flying from their Florida place to their home in Wisconsin. The pilot, and obviously successful elderly businessman, had a heart attack and died. With a talk-down from the tower, his wife, aged 80, who was not a pilot, successfully landed the 2-engine plane.

Now, a great landing involves actually using the aircraft again. So, it was a good landing.

This morning, a two-seat F-18 crashed into five buildings in Virginia.

Once at an air show I had the opportunity to sit in the cockpit of an F4U Corsair. Didn't want to get back out of it.

OT -MSNBC quote re Zimmerman transcript: "An earlier version of the story truncated George Zimmermanís quotes..."
When you "truncate" a quote you remove some of the words from the end to give a less-than-complete account of what was said. Truncation is a legitimate part of the editing process, but it must be used carefully so as to avoid taking away too much information.
There is another word entirely for selectively removing words from the middle of a quote to portray a diametrically opposite picture of what was actually said... that is called "lying", and it is used to prevent giving away too much information.

Well, I think mankind is basically tribal in nature at a limbic brain level; however, there is an alternative to the easy tribalism of "race/ethnicity/etc." and that is the meritorious community. The founders (yes they were all dead white men over 100 years old) framed the ground rules for such an alternative in the US Constitution with equality before the law and unalienable rights as key precepts. Such a society is not easy to run nor is its success guaranteed, but for those that are willing, it offers far more to the individual than group identity based societies.

248 His main advice is to avoid young, black males -
especially in large #s because they commit so much violent crime, have
lower IQs, and are raised to hate white people.


Maybe I take this personally because my parents never went to college and I can't speak to any of my relatives about anything I've done as a mathematician. Not even in general terms. And most of them, yes, have low IQs. Before the welfare state, having a low IQ wasn't really tied to social dysfunction. So this kind of crappy argument to me just accepts the assumptions of the left that demography is destiny. I believe in individualism. Call me crazy.

Black
males age 16-36 are only 2-3% of the population, but commit over 1/3rd
of the violent crime in America.


Stupid statistic. Males age 16-36 are a small percentage of the population but commit almost all the violent crime in America.

Derb's advice in a nutshell: avoid young, black men and try to get the old white lady at the DMV.

You know what? I think we can live with a little rude service at the DMV.

Statistics are what they are, what matters is what you do with the information you glean from them.

I believe in individualism and I'm not going to live my life with actuarial tables. You'll end up missing good relationships and wonderful people. Derb and the Left are simply making the same flawed assumptions based on statistics and merely proposing different actions.

249 They play in theworst division in baseball and stillwon'tget above .500.

Not the worse division. Ladies and gentlemen, I present the AL Central where, outside of Detriot, all other teams are, at best, average. White Sox (old and expensive), Minnesota (uh, yea....outside of Mauer and Morneau, name a Twin), Cleveland (eh) and Kansas City (nice young position players....but Bruce Chen is your opening day strater ---- Bruce Chen?).

And I think the Pirates will be competative this year. Remember last year they were in first until a crappy call in Atlanta sunk their season...which is what happens to young teams.

260 Derbyshire's article is what's sometimes called "hate facts." Things that are factually true, but reflect badly on a group with political clout.

You know what's racist? Assuming that black people are somehow entitled to behave badly, or are incapable of behaving well. Excusing crime and corruption and incompetence because of skin color.

And you can see how it destroys black people with genuine intelligence. All their lives they're haunted by the suspicion that they're just being tolerated. Getting the participation trophy.

Liberal policies and ideology are the worst thing that ever happened to black people in America. They managed to survive slavery and Jim Crow with their dignity intact, managed to build families and thriving businesses -- and then the fucking Great Society turned them into a caste of government dependents.

If black politicians had any genuine integrity, they'd all be calling for the end of welfare -- and the arrest of everyone involved in creating and maintaining it.

I don't know that he knew what would happen, but he sure would not have minded.

When he came back and tried to fill in those spaces himself, it turned out his imagination wasn't as good as most of his fans'.

What I don't understand is why George Lucas never used his vast wealth to produce an awesome epic movie about California drag racers or something.

The only thing that would fuck yours and my opinion is the human factor. Human or Human's child gets bit, he hides himself or the infected in the community. Infection spreads.

The only way you could possibly prosper in Jurrassic setting is if you moved your colony off well traveled predator routes, by non herd eating water source such as a well or underground spring. Your could stage your hunting from there. The cavemen did it but with not as many predators so I am sure it is "possible".

I would still choose the zombies cause you could pretty much make them chase you up a hill and then rope swing across and watch them plummet to their second death or at least break every bone they had.

322 Zombies or Dinosaurs?

Dinosaur Island implies the rest of the world is still intact, so you can get regular shipments of Barrett .50-caliber rifles and AK-47s. Plus it's an island so eventually there won't be any dinosaurs.

In the zombie situation one assumes everyone else is zombified or eaten, so you're entirely on your own. In which case you're going to drop rapidly back to a medieval lifestyle, if not something more primitive. That means even without zombies survival will be difficult.

Not that zombie apocalypse makes a lick of sense. If they're halfway realistic (i.e. have to obey basic laws of the universe) then the zombie problem will solve itself in a month or two. They'll rot, or eat each other, or starve. If they're somehow magically durable and don't need food, then you've got proof that supernatural forces exist, so Harry Potter will save you.

I wasnt clear sorry. I was contrasting that with a Jurrasic setting. In the Jurrasic setting every human would be keyed against the enemy, in the zombie setting the enemy could possibly be them, so thus it would cause unforseen problems such as someone hiding a bite or possibly flipping out and letting zombies in. I think humans would quickly adapt to animals and their threat. Undead humans not so much. IMHO

I suspect it's because that's what he was nerd-deified for, and now he fears to leave the temple lest he finds his wealth and reputation that worship gave him ends precisely at the border of the sanctuary. Why else make the silly edits he's been doing even if all they do is piss off the followers, but to constantly reassert "This is mine, and mine is the power"?

344 What I don't understand is why George Lucas never used his vast wealth
to produce an awesome epic movie about California drag racers or
something. The man can make literally any movie he wants to, and instead
he wastes his time and mine making increasingly lifeless spin-offs and
sequels. He obviously doesn't really like Star Wars any more, so why has
he devoted forty years of his life to it?


Money.

Despite (or, really, because of) his unthinking liberal views, George Lucas is the greediest, most crass person in Hollywood, bar none.

He literally was jealous of James Cameron's money.

Even somebody like Michael Bay at least thinks about entertaining his audience.

407 "when I'm President, I'll restore "inter-league play" to the way doG intended it: The World Series....in addition to raising the mound back up by six inches and eliminating the Designated Hitter."

Yes, but will you restore Cincinatti to the first opening day game and make sure there's no week-long gap between a game and the opening day like this year? For crying out loud, the Mariners went back and played more spring training games after playing a season opener in Japan.

413 This is God's honest truth.
When I was breast feeding the Kid, my let-down
was literally painful. I quickly learned to pull the
boy off the boobie or milk would shoot out his
nose.
The upside was, I quickly regained a skinny jean
size, and had porn star boobies (which I told
D'oh, "Don't touch. They're for our boy.")

Hopefully D'oh boy's baby mama won't be as emasculating as his mama was to his daddy. That way his son won't runaway to halfway around the world.

422 Firey is a good descriptor. Notdeceptive but true, honest.A good branch of passionate.

What I meant by a light, mild game of crazy is you know she can be a bit crazy. SHE knows she can be a bit crazy, but can stop it gets out of hand and starts hurting you. Then you both can laugh it off and have great firey re-connect sex that leaves you eyeing the AED you had installed on the headboard as a precaution.

Mostly, evil is boring. It tries to shock, but falls into predictable patterns of behavior. It depends on good to create space for it to work. It contributes nothing but hate and bile, but wants nothing more that to be the focus.

480 I read Atlas Shrugged about a dozen years ago and I thought it was a page-turner for the most part. Then again, I rarely read fiction. I suppose there are more exciting novels out there.

As for Galt's speech, I kind of glossed over it since I had already read most of her non-fiction essays and it was old material to me. But it's important and worth taking some time with.

If anybody asks me whether they should read the book, I say, "Nah, just read today's newspaper."

We play a little rough, and according to home-field rules -- so I'm trying to be sure that you're not hurt because you don't get the rules yet.....as opposed to someone who plays hard and gets some bruises. I'm not trying to cast you into a "fragile flower".....indeed, you may not be aware that there are two types of birds that rule the suburban landscape -- when they want a bath, it's their bath; when they want a feeder, it's their feeder. Hawks, jays, crows all give way, but most people can't guess which two birds they'd be.

It's woodpeckers and hummingbirds. Woodpeckers, because even the largest hawks and eagles can't guarantee against one shot -- and a single blow from a woodpecker can shatter wings or legs. And hummingbirds because they alone -- of all birds -- can hover, fly backwards, and fly upside down (!) .....and their OODA loop is in milliseconds -- anything swooping in on a hummingbird can have the hummingbird attacking their defenseless back repeatedly until the hummingbird gets bored. There are no effective defenses.

So it's not that I'm picturing a defenseless hummingbird......it's just that I'm trying to get you caught up on several years of moron history.

Except the vast number of characters who do exactly that. Spock was doing Jedi mind tricks when George Lucas was still a kid from Modesto going to film school at USC. Remember the bit where Spock plants a suggestion in a guard's mind through a wall? Guard thinks prisoners have escaped and enters the cell to investigate and is then overpowered. This was, of course, an old gag in SF before it was done on Trek. Both the Jedis and the Green Lantern Corps owe much to the Lensmen of the 1930s.

This can go on infinitely. The winner is ultimately the writer. He gets to play god and pick the outcome. For every Star Wars advantage a Star Trek counter can be offered and vice versa. Neither has enough hard definition to make it anything more than an exercise in playing favorites.

Star Wars is largely a compilation of all the stuff Lucas grew up reading. Dune, published when he was 21, was a huge influence on him. The original proposal for his epic was blatantly drawn from Dune and intended to be a multi-generational saga far lengthier than what has been published thus far.

The Death star has its inspiration in two main sources: the planet-sized battlestations in EE 'Doc' Smith's Lensman universe, and Fred Saberhagen's Berserkers. The latter were remnants of an ancient war, massive AI controlled planet killers wiping out any inhabited world they detected.

Got bad enough there were veiled threats and everything.




finally they threatened NC ref (who has met me) and then Some Joe (who has not.) The final showdown with some joe was rather interesting they threatened to drive over and kick his ass. wow. he took em up on it and was like look i can be in Chicago in 6 hours, will you meet me at the airport?





no more trouble after that. was weird having someone tell people who knew me in meatspace i didnt exist as i describe myself. especially when they asserted my man didnt exist, whele NC ref was sending shit to him in Afghanistan! Trolls suck. you learn to ignore them.

That depends which character in 'American Graffiti' is more Lucas. The Ron Howard everyman or the nerdy Charles Martin Smith 'Terry the Toad' who is sent off to die in Viet Nam.

Lucas supposedly fancied himself a budding pro race driver in his teens but rethought his life after a terrible car accident. Somehow I think he was fooling himself about that or edited his history more to his liking. (Modesto has a surprisingly high murder rate. There may not be too many of his childhood contemporaries left to contradict him.) The young Lucas always struck me as extremely nerdy and never possessed of the athleticism pro race driving demands. A friend who worked for Lucas on Star Wars (Lucas hired him because he was very well connected in fandom and Fox was completely oblivious to what they had) largely confirmed this perception.

I'd pick 2.

When humans appeared, it was long, long after the dinosaurs but there was no shortage of awesome beasts of great size dominating the environment.

They're all either extinct, domesticated, or kept in preserves for their own protection. And that was mostly before we had guns.

We have a good track record for prospering amid big dangerous animals, many of which want to eat us.

Zombie apocalypse is one we've never done for real before. Seems more risky if only for that reason.

Done properly, the big fear factor of the zombie apocalypse scenario is the general feeling that the basic rules have failed and nothing can be trusted anymore. People fail to respond properly because they've been cognitively cast adrift.

The ones who survive were not regarded as normal before the change. They may have stayed out of trouble by and large but they were always a bit different and everyone knew it.

But that is how evolution works. When a catastrophic (as opposed to more usual subtle forces) event massively selects for particular traits, the species is going to be a bit different as a result.

Advantage Borg, I think. The Death star gets eaten but the Borg would likely think the Replicators were really nifty and domesticate them. Considering how the Borg reproduce, it would be like keeping a giant sperm around the house.

610 SoS's Hummingbird? Had I known, I'd put on pants tonight.

Posted by: derit at April 07, 2012 04:00 AM (FQlFL)

611 Hey gang. I've been out of commission for the last two weeks because of a bad back. I'm finally starting to come around, but something else has come up.

Tonight was the first night of Passover, and we host a lot of people. This year, we had a total of 35 people at dinner (including the five of us). We have help to set everything up and cleanup afterwards. An older black couple (and her son), who have helped around the house and with the twins for years.

Well, a little after 11pm tonight, after most everyone had gone home, and we were cleaning up (I say we loosely, as I'm still only able to stand for about a minute without pain, and can lift nothing), Mark, the gentleman half of the couple, suddenly dropped to the floor. His breathing and heart stopped completely.

My wife and a friend of ours started CPR immediately, and I got on the phone with 911. The local FD EMTs showed up in less than 10 minutes, and the paramedics arrived about 10 minutes after that.

Mark was in full arrest the whole time. The EMTs had him on the paddles pretty much as soon as they arrived, and continued the CPR all the way through until he was put on the ambulance.

Just before they left, one of the paramedics told us Mark was breathing on his own again, and had a steady, if incredibly weak, pulse. He's currently in the CCU, and holding his own. But the doctors have no idea how much brain function he's got left. They're running a CAT scan tonight, and we'll know a lot more tomorrow.

The paramedic told us that basically my wife and our friend saved Mark's life. They're pretty sure they would not have been able to get his heart started again had CPR not been initiated immediately. He's not out of the woods, obviously, but at least there's hope.

I'm telling you this for a few reasons:
1) I just needed to get it all out. I haven't been able to sleep, and I wanted to share this with people who I know care.
2) Learn CPR. You never know. You just never fucking know. Had I had any physical strength and endurance at all, I'd have been right in there too. In fact, if the ladies had run out of steam before the EMTs had arrived, I'd have sucked it up and jumped in as well; back be damned. The point being that it's a skill that you hate to have to use, but will never regret having at your disposal.
3) Please pray for Mark. He's had a hard life, and it's certainly not going to get any easier. But the power of prayer is a wondrous thing. I know it will matter. Please.

I'll keep you posted over the next couple of days as things unfold. I'm going to shut down and try to get a few hours of sleep. This weekend is going in a direction completely orthogonal to what was expected. I'm supposed to go to services in the morning to observe the anniversary of my father's death. An odd juxtaposition, that....

Thanks for listening.

Posted by: Hummingbird at April 07, 2012 03:08 AM (R5yLq)


Hummingbird. I've been (as posted above) out of commission, so I haven't been able to keep up with SoS's adventures, and your involvement with him. Given your presence tonight (and I'm assuming previous nights), I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that you and Stuck are now an "item". Congrats!

I was really rootin' for Stuck to take a hit off the ol' courage bong and have that conversation with his daughter about his attraction to you. I'm glad it seems to be working so far.

Welcome to the fambly. We're insane, yes. But there sure is a whole lot of lovin' mixed in with Teh Crazies. I've only just become initiated myself. I'm hoping to get back in the swing of things as my back gets better. I tend to work late nights (I'm an iPhone programmer; weird hours come with the territory), so this is a great forum in which to exercise the bullshit that rattles around in my head.

And don't worry about the trolls. It's kinda like a game of whack-a-mole. Every time you knock one down, another one pops up. But if you can take some pleasure from the exercise of ripping them new assholes, then you'll come out ahead.

And just keep reminding yourself--ignorance can be cured; stupidity can't. ;-)

618 Being already well acquainted with Derb's writing, there is nothing there that shocks me. and certainly nothing he hasn't discussed in detail before. The only difference is that he gathers it all together. Cards on the table.

The facts are all defensible and readily backed up. The opinions are ones held by far too many who won't admit to it.

There was a period in the 80s when neither myself or anyone I knew would go to Magic Mountain. It had become very popular with black kids from the crappier parts of LA. That in of itself wasn't the problem. The frequent of violence and muggings at the park was the problem. Nobody would state the plain fact they were avoiding a gathering place for trouble-prone people of a certain portion of the human spectrum. Except for one small group. The black kids in Thousand Oaks could say it when nobody else would. They wanted nothing to do with blacks from that part of LA. They had better things to do with their lives than get beaten up for unknowingly wearing a piece of clothing a gang had chosen as their personal plumage.

I have to wonder if Derb has gotten a dire diagnosis and decided he is going out guns blazing.

I notice that LGF and Twitchy both have posted parts of Derb's notorious article, while eliding the links that support his contentions. In fairness, if you wish to condemn his article, at least read his actual post and check his links. I'll be interested to see if there are any factual rebuttals to his points, which he has conveniently numbered for easy reference. So far the reactions seem to be highly emotional, and haven't included any factual challenges to his specific claims.
I've corresponded with Derb a few times over the years. He's the smartest guy who ever took the time to write me, and I just don't see any hatred in him (except hatred for tyrants, criminals and jihadis.) It's sad that NR is soon going to have to ostentatiously fire him for writing things that are mostly provably true.

Posted by: gp at April 07, 2012 08:06 AM (1OJKO)

634 What bothers me about the Derby thing is that he's raising his kids to profile, not based on behaviors or situations but primarily based on race. His kids will grow up someday and be in positions of authority over others, including blacks. How will they magically turn off their bias against blacks when they are a hiring supervisor or teacher or police officer or whatever? He's setting them up for a world of hurt. What a model parent.

As for the justifying what he's doing based on quantitative studies of blacks -- bull shit. It's a multi-variable situation. People's actions are not dictated by their race, but on a whole host of factors. But he focuses on one variable (the one he can see, race). That's the problem with it and why it's not even valid scientifically, irrespective of the moral concerns.

You can raise your kids to be situationally aware and to use common sense without teaching them to judge people based on skin color.

Posted by: Y-not at April 07, 2012 08:21 AM (5H6zj)

635 I'm not sure that Derby is writing about skin color, per se. He could have written a similar article to be wary of Hawaiians in Hawaii, Mexicans in Fresno, Muslims in the White House, or lawyers if you're a lottery winner. It all depends on the circumstances, not the skin color- that's the mistake he's making in the article.

Posted by: t-bird at April 07, 2012 09:29 AM (l/xhO)

636 t-bird, Derb is most definitely writing about skin color; read his article.
Some of his points are simply factual, like points 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 11, 14. Some points are "common sense situational awareness," [thanks, Y-Not] like 10b and 10i. Some points, like 10d, do not stand without further qualification; e.g, you'd expect to be safe at a Howard University 50th Annual Student Reunion. His point 9 is marred by his (uncharacteristically) pulling numbers (5%, 50%) out of his ass; the point is true, but the exact numbers are arguable.
I don't agree with all his judgements and conclusions, but I still think it's sad that he is going to lose his NR job, and will be henceforth shunned by most conservatives. He took up Eric Holder's challenge not to be cowardly in discussing race, and the respectable right wing is going to flee.

Posted by: gp at April 07, 2012 10:14 AM (+Jpqc)

637 I meant had he lived in Hawaii and only experienced Hawaiians, etc.

Yes, he is talking about skin color, as he would have talked about red hair a century ago in Boston.

Posted by: t-bird at April 07, 2012 11:21 AM (l/xhO)

638 What would Derb have said about red hair in 1912 Boston?

Its not so much a war on religion as a war on actually living out or displaying that religion. They're fine with you believing whatever you want, if you keep it to yourself and don't let it influence what you do or what you would like society to be like.


They have one worldview and Christianity another. You can be Christian as long as you don't let that get in the way of their worldview. Its a war of basic presuppositions, of how you understand life. They have their ideals, Christians have a nearly opposite set.

640 Time for a total geek-down:

Borg cube hands-down. Anyone arguing that the Death Star would win clearly has not watched a lot of Star Trek. Having watched a lot of both series, it's not hard to figure out. The Borg have extremely advanced technology, mobility and adaptability. The Death Star can only fire at large, lumbering targets and it's firing angle is quite limited. The Borg are advanced enough with shields and other defensive technologies that perhaps they could repel firepower of that magnitude if the DS managed to somehow hit them. You have to assume that the Borg would fly right into that relatively small firing zone and that the Death Star would be smart enough to fire before the Borg could start anything but that is unlikely. The Borg wouldn't take long to figure out that they just have to use their cutter beam to plow through the DS armor (it has no shields and even if it did, the Borg can take those down pretty quickly) to breach their core. They have other powerful energy based weapons that they could direct at the DS dish laser, damaging or disabling it entirely. All lasers would be useless from other surface guns or TIE fighters as even Federation ships can repel lasers without any shields. Sure Vader could probably handle Borg hordes that would try to assimilate him if they wanted to but if they just blow the thing up with him on it, the Force isn't going to mean much there.
