Overnight Open Thread

Evenin' y'all. Hey if you take a break from postin' on the ONT, you just might be able to catch the Lyrid Meteor Shower which peaks tonight. Or if you are too damn lazy to go out and look (or the weather is horrible), you can watch it here at this NASA link. Anyhow, the best time to watch is between midnight and dawn tonight.

Also, those of you with telescopes (I hear Cool Czech has one for his neighborhood watch program) should be able to see the rings of Saturn tonight as well. As for seeing Uranus, you're on your own.

Toss Out The All-Volunteer Armed Forces?

Some dumbass at the Washington Post feels that It's Time To Toss The All-Volunteer Military. Why on Earth would you want to do that? It is by far the most capable, most motivated force on the planet who has no equal. It is EXACTLY what you want defending you.

Resuming conscription is the best way to reconnect the people with the armed services. Yes, reestablishing a draft, with all its Vietnam-era connotations, would cause problems for the military, but those could never be as painful and expensive as fighting an unnecessary war in Iraq for almost nine years. A draft would be good for our nation and ultimately for our military.

Ah what a load of bullshit. If we had the draft in place, we STILL would've entered every single one of the engagements that we have to date. It would not have changed the decision to go in with any of them including Iraq which the author says we entered into recklessly. Congressional debate and approval is reckless? However, I would argue that our successes (and failures) that we have had would've been worse if we had gone with the draft model vice volunteer force.

This screed is really just an anti-war/anti-Iraq platform. He has no interest in ensuring our armed forces are the best and ready to defend our interests in the world. He would actually would prefer us to be weak so we wouldn't get involved in any conflict. It's not about making sure every American serves their country and has some skin in the game as he argues. It's about weakening the military to a point where no politician would ever use them for fear of their lack of ability. No thank you.

I would argue the American people most out of touch with the military today are the snobbish, liberal elite not your everyday, average American. A draft wouldn't fix that disconnect.

Office Supply Weaponry

Malt Liquor Reviews

This could be pretty important info for you on your hobo hunts. You got to know which hobo is drinking the good stuff so it'll taste better. You know, kinda like the difference between Wagyu beef or some meat on a stick in Indonesia. Malt Liquor Reviews. Well, well. I guess Lando Calrissian chose wisely.

Colt 45 (G. Heileman Brewing Co., Detroit, MI)
Flavor: 3, Drinkability: 5, Aesthetics: 1, Engineering: 3, Label: 3, Name: 5, Credibility: 4; Total: 40

This one has it all: a smooth spokesman (Billy Dee Williams), a watery, eminently drinkable texture and, thanks to its omnipresent advertising, a ton of street credibility. Though critics might complain that its flavor and appearance are quite generic, we prefer to think this is because Colt 45 set the standard for the industry. Not to be overlooked is this brand's name. The label and merchandise bear the insignia of a young horse, but we all know what a "Colt 45" really is: a pistol. Though the brand no longer includes an extra five ounces for free (in keeping with its name), you can't beat that combination for 40-ounce imagery: malt liquor and a gun.

Disney Secrets

10 Secrets Form The Wonderful World Of Disney.

2. The Cats Own The Night. Each night at Disneyland, after the sunburned families and exhausted cast members have made their way home, the park fills up again -this time, with hundreds of feral cats. Park officials love the felines because they help control the mouses population. (After all, a park full of cartoon mice is more enticing than a park full of real ones.) But these cats aren’t a new addition to the Disney family. They first showed up at Disneyland soon after it opened in 1955, and rather than spending time chasing them away, park officials decided to put the cats to work. Today, there are plenty of benefits to being a Disney-employed mouser. When they’re not prowling the ground, these corporate fat cats spend their days lounging at one of the park’s five permanent feeding stations. Of course, Disney also goes to great lengths to manage its feline population. Wranglers at the park work to spay and neuter adult cats, and any time kittens are found, they’re put up for adoption.

Deputy Sues For $50 Million

I gotta say, this deputy does not sound too smart. Deputy Files $50M Suit Against Sheriff, Others.

According to Rice's lawsuit, she was still in training in the sheriff's department in July 2006, when Cote made a request.

Cote said he was investigating sexual predators on the internet and was pretending to be a 15 year old girl, but needed pictures "to send to predators if they requested them."

Cote showed Rice pictures of another female deputy, another trainee, as it turned out, that he had taken.

As Rice describes the pictures, the other trainee "was wearing cutoff jean shorts and halter/tank style top." The other trainee "was facing away from the camera with her legs apart and bent over slightly at the hips." Rice thought she'd be photographed roughly the same way.


So she goes off and takes some pics and ends up topless in them. And then the story gets really messy. It's not like they needed photos of officers in order to track down these predators. Any photo on the internet would've sufficed I'm sure. And who was still using 3.5" floppy discs back in 2006?

Air Power

Damn. Looks like the Zoomies had some fun recently. Strike Eagle Extreme: Nearly 70 F-15Es Take To The Sky.

Airmen from the 4th Fighter Wing came together to honor their heritage by launching nearly 70 F-15E Strike Eagles in a Turkey Shoot training mission April 16.

The nearly 70 Strike Eagles taxied one after the next simultaneously down the base flightline before heading to bombing ranges across North Carolina to destroy more than 1,000 targets.

Well, if you morons are bored, go see if you can break some of the codes to unlock material related to the movie Prometheus at their viral marketing site Weyland Industries.

57 "Resuming conscription is the best way to reconnect the people with the armed services."

It's not like they couldn't just, you know, teach people about the importance of the military in schools. Or have some ceremonies to engender respect for the uniform. Or maybe, you know, have officers come in and talk to people about being in the military. Or, hey, have some kind of program on campuses, where you could sort of experience what it was like in to be in the military and then go on if you wanted and actually encourage people to try it out or at least get to know other people in that program! No, far easier to reinstitute the draft.

Libs want the draft because they think it's evil white rich Republican people with no skin in the game, and it's poor brown people who go in the military because they have no other economic choice. The rest of the military is made up of stupid white Southerners who like to shoot guns anyway and who have been so infected by racism that they don't know their own class interests. It's all class warfare all the time with these people.

I am not sure this is exactly the case. There has been quite a bit ofprint chat about that very topic; our yutes not able to pass basic physical tests, rampant drug use, etc, etc.

The argument supportive of the "got all we need" posit is that with budgets shrinking like it was 1976, the "needs" are sure to get smaller.

engender respect for the uniform. Or maybe, you know, have officers come
in and talk to people about being in the military. Or, hey, have some
kind of program on campuses, where you could sort of experience what it
was like in to be in the military and then go on if you wanted and
actually encourage people to try it out or at least get to know other
people in that program!

102 I'll make this point about the draft just once, I promise. Sometimes a young person gets exposed to the military because it couldn't be avoided (i.e. there is/was conscription). Sometimes that young person found that the military is not at all as fouled up as some would suppose and, quite possibly, find that service for the sake of service is a very good thing.

Then that young person might just make a career of the service; something that would never have happened absent the draft.

Besides being exactly one of those young persons (young back then), I served alongside dozens in the same situation. In other words, it wasn't exceptional, it happened with regularity.

Granted, in the AF we didn't have to go into combat with draftees. I'm sure the Army, and damned surely the Marines, have very different opinions of conscription.

Y-not, we're in the D.C. area and have been trying to sell off and on for 5 years. According to our realtor the market in our specific neighborhood is HOT!!!!1!! and he practically forced us to put the house back on for 30 days. We are begrudgingly going along, though dubious about the prospect of actually selling for our price. We kept getting lowballed last time.

anyhoo, I think the market is rebounding, too. Just not back to the pre-bubble levels. How are you? other than not dead?

Posted by: stillers at April 21, 2012 10:29 PM (wbyfw)

133 A draft is enforced service to the state. It should only be invoked when the United States is in a total war footing and facing a severe challenge to its existence.

Of course leave it to liberals to see service to the state as an unmitigated good when invoked for even the most trivial of reasons. The fact that they believe they would control the state, and thereby the lives of these individual , is surely just a coincidence.

134
Meanwhile, taxes are harming the private economy. According to the
Tax Foundation, California has the 48th-worst business tax climate. Its
income tax is steeply progressive. Millionaires pay a top rate of 10.3%,
the third-highest in the country. But middle-class workers—those who
earn more than $48,000—pay a top rate of 9.3%, which is higher than what
millionaires pay in 47 states.

And Democrats want to raise taxes even
more. Mind you, the November ballot initiative that Mr. Brown is
spearheading would primarily hit those whom Democrats call
"millionaires" (i.e., people who make more than $250,000 a year).

Posted by: Tammy al-Thor at April 21, 2012 10:20 PM (SsG4J)

Because they need an excuse to whine about oppression. Plenty of my family went into the military, and all of them are adamantly against a draft, mainly because it would be too much work to try and fix the idiots the trawler net brought in.I tried arguing the Darwinian advantages of such a system, but my grandpa, a former missile man, pointed out that we were unlikely to be involved in a Starship Troopers scenario in the near future. ):

158 hi all

from the "reinstate the draft" article:

We had a draft in the 1960s, of course, and it did not stop President
Lyndon Johnson from getting into a ground war in Vietnam. But the draft
sure did encourage people to pay attention to the war and decide whether
they were willing to support it.


Translation from Liberal Gobbledygook to English: If we had had a draft, more of you ignorant rubes would have been upset about the war in Iraq, and Bush would have lost the 2004 election as he should have

So I was talking with someone who is fairly apolitical but she's pretty high up in corporate America.

The fact that to Democrats $250k/year = a millionaire was news to her, and I would guess she's making somewhere near "millionaire" money.

Imagine what America would be like if the State Media wasn't the press arm of the Democrat party?

this caused my formerly socialist friend to "go Galt" and retire. He was stung the first time i said it like that but now he proudly says it too and calls himself a "classical Liberal" i try not to gloat to much but it seems his transformation is almost complete. Obama 2012 stick has been removed from his front door and he keeps saying things like "Romney might be more like Clinton than Regan only without the sex issues."
last time we ate lunch the topic was "Watermelons" seems hes given up on the green issues too and now sees it all as control.

193 There are certain responsibilities of any government. The first of which is to continue to exist. A country without an armed force can only continue to exist at the pleasure of others.
Furthermore, the Constitution demands the existence of a military. It is one of the few enumerated powers of the federal government.

Although a draft would be a bad thing, I don't think there's anything about the draft that is necessarily at odds with conservatism.

Encouraging such programs is fine, but I'd draw the line at "mandatory".

The answer to the paradoxical question of "why do the Dems want a draft, but still cut back on the military?" is - said Dems see the military more as just another "make work" program than the force required to kill people and break things. This is how nations like France and German view their *relatively* token milataries. Also, do you know how much money would be required to conscript every American at age 18 for 2 years (at least)? Yeah, it would add a few more zeros on the debt number, not to mention degrading our military capabilities in the various manners previously described and also not to mention that this would divert money from weapon system procurement and maintenance.

205 The end purpose of conscription is unionization of the military. The secondary goal is to expand government control over other aspects of our lives in much the same way that healthcare "reform" does.

The left has lost a lot of it's traditional working class power base in the past 40 years as manufacturing has declined and union jobs have gone away. By creating a draft, they will try and harness the groundswell of opposition in order to create a soldiers union that will claim to represent draftees interests.

Secondary is the ability to claim that the existence of a draft requires greater government control over the daily lives of citizens in order to ensure that no one is too fat, too out of shape, thinking the wrong thoughts, or otherwise undermining the ability of the government to organize a draftee army.

238 Myth: Most Vietnam veterans were drafted

Dr Fish, the day I enlisted, in July 68, there were about 200 (maybe slightly fewer)guys processed through the entry station in OKC. We were all sworn in just after lunch in a large room. The draftees stood on one side of a line just about through the middle of the room. Approx equal numbers on each side. From conversations that morning, I estimate some 60 - 75% of us "volunteering" were very much draft threatened.

"Funny" story. Just before the LT swore us in, a sergeant called 12 of thedraftees to the front of the room and told them they weren't being drafted into the Army - they were being drafted into the Marines. You could have heard a pin drop.

86% of the men who died in Vietnam were Caucasians, 12.5% were black, 1.2% were other races.

249 Very cool. My wife has a .38 revolver and a 9mm. The .38 will bruise her hand at the range, but it is super easy to use. The 9mm is easy on the hand, but most complicated than she likes. She gets a very tight grouping with it though.

Most page fans will admit he was notoriously sloppy live. My guess is massively stoned, but then again, I know a bunch of players who actually improve live with a little weed boost.

Possibly. I don't want to think of Led Zeppelin as a studio band, because that is so limiting, but it can be hard to find live performances that live up to the perfection of their albums. I liked the one-off reunion performance, though.

271 What was the percentage of blacks in the war, though?

IIRC, the Army was over-represented with blacks, but about proportional with other minorities, meaning the black over-rep came out of the white group. The death rates above were just about proportional to the US population. So, whites died disproportionally. The AF is the only service I can relate to with any accuracy; it was just about racially proportional through the Vietnam adventure. Almost all AF losses were in aircrew positions and very few blacks were killed or captured.

So I go out for a trail run today, breaking in a new pair of shoes (3rd pair of five fingers) so I was just gonna go 2 miles out, then straight back.

On the way back, took a wrong turn somewhere, and 5 miles later came out at a different trailhead than where I started. 4 miles from my car, straight uphill on asphalt.

Was able to borrow a cell phone, and Cougar, princess and beagle came to my rescue. Thank Gaia. I was already hungry and tired, and that run back to the car might have finished me off.

If anyone drove past a very handsome puddle of goo on the side of the road in central MD today, that was me.

No no no. I think you misunderstood me. The goal is to unionize the military. Once you have a bunch of draftees who don't want to be there but can't leave, then every complaint that they have becomes evidence for the "need" for independent representatives to represent the soldiers. Every congressional investigation by the Dems will declare the need for such an entity. Congressional hearings will occur. Minority, female, homosexual and other representatives will come out of the woodwork to decry treatment by the military towards their groups. Families will hear this and demand that something be done. The result will be something akin to an Enlisted Soldiers Union where some union rep in each unit is placed between the enlisted soldiers and the NCO and Officer chains of command. Every decision will be challenged, every statement will be evaluated to ensure that it meets liberal orthodoxy. It will be a nightmare.

"

I have met veterans kicked out of the military after 19 years of service for being slightly overweight/out of shape, depression, pretty much a splinter...they military does not want to pay for pensions after 20 years of service. Unlike state workers/teachers who can take their money out...troops can not take out anything. 20 years or nothing. My buddy was kicked out of the army after 19 years for being a few pounds overweight.. no pension..nothing...4 tours in Iraq. he is very depressed and sometimes suicidal.

338 The fact rdbrewer just posted he didn't know Cash covered Hurt just changed my whole outlook on this site. I'm not kidding. I've lost all respect for this site. How in the hell can you post so many nifty things and yet post something so ignorant is beyond me. It's like you all are turning into a little green footballs of stupidity (minus the anti-semitic hate of course).
God, that was dumb. I get that the intrawebs cause people to be too honest at times but some things are simply too f-ing dumb to ever say. At all.

you are probably right. it looks to me to be mostly strange noodlings with hot iron, in service of just practicing basic skills and gaining mastery of how to work his stuff and not get tired or fuck himself up. when he feels ready, my friends who are master smiths will take him inder their wings.

Etc. [warm fuzzy feeling] Wow! I made the list!

Heh. Hi back, Mrs alThor

Today's good news bad news pet report.

Good news. Old shep, who could hardly stand up long enough to pee, now seems to be moving good distances around the yard. When we're not looking. Either he's getting better, or he's been playing us for suckers to get attention.

Sad news. Max is a feral male cat who never got snipped. He was becoming tamer and is very dear to us because just about a year ago he helped bring to us a lost yellow kitten, my little buddy Charlie. Max has not come home for four days. I'd like to think of him happily making little black kittens down the road somewhere, but the coyotes have been thick and close this year and I fear the worst. Maybe he'd've hung around the house more if we'd had his fancies removed, I don't know. Not the first cat to just vanish, but it's always hard and there's always something we could have done better.

Think I'll go see if I can find me some meteors.

The pitcher is so damn good that not one single runner on the other team gets even as far as first base, even once. They don't even get walked there.

The pitcher strikes out every single hitter on the other team throughout the entire game.

The latest is to pretend that what Romney's GRANDFATHER may or may not have done ~100 years ago is an issue for Romney in 2012.

Funny, when the Kennedys were around, the fact that their living and active sponsor Dad was a proven bootlegger, stock swindler and Nazi sympathizer was NO EFFING PROBLEM.

Not to mention Ogabe's 2 Dads--1 communist Muslim, the other Muslim--plus communist mom, plus Communist Uncle/childhood sexuality inducer. Nooooo effffing problems...

Posted by: DC in Towson (9!) at April 21, 2012 11:43 PM (I/cLr)


Didn't see the question, but probably not enough diff between the 3 and 4 to be that big an issue, if the price difference is not big go for the gen 4 just because, otherwise save some coin and go for the gen 3.

This. He is cynical. He dares the locals NOT to support the team so he can threaten to pick up and leave like the Colts did. The Bastard. I think he is reaching the end of his run here though.

435 the obvious awful history of all-too-recent anti-Black practices in the Mormon church.

Wasn't George Romney a friend of MLK?

From the Wiki: When Martin Luther King, Jr. came to Detroit in June 1963 and led the 120,000-strong Great March on Detroit, Romney designated the occasion Freedom March Day in Michigan, and sent state senator Stanley Thayer to march with King as his emissary, but did not attend himself because it was on Sunday.

One moron had it right the other day: SNL and the DNC can't run against the actually Romney but rather, the have to create a bogus-Romney and run against that.

The only thing I know about Beiber and the Jonas brothers is that they exist, and they make some sort of music I think. Other than that, I got nothing so I am not qualified to speak of them either for good or ill, and I certainly don't know what songs they have covered. Springsteen had some good tunes but he's a lib douche. Thou shalt not sully the name of The Stones by associating them with rabble. At this point in my life I'm probably closer to the end than to the beginning, thanks for the reminder.

447 Good grief, people, the PuffHo was slamming Romney's GRANDfather. Are you actually claiming the people of Michigan voted for a polygamist Republican for governor in the 1960s?! AAAAAHHHHH!!! [Tho they might soon vote for a Muslim polygamist as caliph, hmmmmm...]

Every effing day that AOHell "News" page, prechewed and vomited out by the PuffHo for us retarded readers to slurp up and gum down our gullets, is EFFING CRAMMED with stupid, irrelevant, snarky mindless stories written or read by self-evident brainless eyecandies, all with the subplot of "the right is evil and/or stupid, all the rest of us are noble and smart. [How smart are they? They had a report about a 2,000 lb shark, the stupid bunt newsreader was amazed by a fish that weighed "two tons."]

This latest boils down to: "Because Mitt Romney's grandfather was a bizarre Mormon polygamist, he had to flee to the good land of Mexico, where Mitt was born...and little Mitt grew up to show his gratitude to those tolerant Mexicans BY KICKING THEM OUT AMERICA AS CRUELLY AS HE COULD, THAT B@ST@RD!!"

"Obama's father was a polygamist bigamist, who engaged in culturally-UNacceptible andillegal behavior (here in America, and he knew it), WHO UTTERLY FAILED TO SUPPORT HIS FAMILY ... and abandoned them ... his young wife and toddler child ...

They don't stovepipe, they come straight out of the chamber and up and then get jammed in the slide the long way in the same orientation as when they were extracted from the chamber. What's bad is that to clear it I have to drop the mag, otherwise they jam the next round coming up and nothing moves. I tried putting sandpaper grips on it to eliminate the "limp wristing" factor and that didn't help, so I'm going to try to put a lighter recoil spring on it and see how that does.

Perhaps, since he is so connected at Harvard, he can remedy the problem he sees by telling Harvard they need to allow ROTC on campus again. What a douchenozzle.

I am firmly of the opinion that Obama's "broken home" et al of his childhood was the breeding ground of the raging Narcissistic Personality Disorder that finds such a charming vent in his conduct as President, and was likely the reason he sought the position in the first place. They way the psychiatrist explained NPD to me in reference to my father's diagnosis, it's a thing that happens very early on, by age five, stemming from the inability to reconcile the "good mother" that one loves with the "bad mother" that does things one dislikes. Typical psycho-gobbleygook but still...My father's father was a irresponsible alcoholic, his mother fitfully attentive what with dealing with five kids and said husband. A largely absent father and mother that doesn't focus on you as much as you think she should. Now where the hell else do we see that pattern?

Posting on this late and don't know if anyone pointed it out but the Marine Corps has mostly been a volunteer service.

My former boss was drafted into the Army in '69 and when someone asked for volunteers at the MEPS (or whatever they called it then), he found himself on the way to Camp Lejeune.

640 so I bought a few of these little flashlights I came across to keep in pockets in case of emergency. I do not think they are anything special but for what I paid they seem to be a good deal so far. I went on line to read some reviews after I bought them, you know to confirm the wisdom of my choice and I think I was right. The videos reviews and written reviews all seem tho think it is a reasonably durable and useful little tool.

I came across one fellow whose opinion of himself is almost as mine is of me and he was all bent out of shape over how this was not sufficient as a tactical flashlight especially, because - and this was his principle complaint, the on switch makes noise.

I appreciate the need for managing a lot of things but I am wondering how important the noise of a 200 lumen bright white light is in a tactical situation. I tcould be I suppose but since light travels faster than sound I am guessing your target is going to notice the bright light shining on him before he hears the sound anyway. Unless you are taking on a squad of blind jihadis, how important is that sound thing anyway?

No it wasn't Perry "stepping on his dick", it was the idiots that flitted from one absurdity to the next. From Bachmann, to Cain, to Newt, to Santorum. This race should have come down to Romney-Perry. That it didn't is testimony to the stupidity of the Republican "rank and file". They were led around by the nose by the MFM and meaningless "debates". So we are left with Romney, fine with me, Obama must be defeated.

Posted by: HH at April 22, 2012 01:30 AM (KB0hv)

well you know, it is one of the flashlights you would mount on your rifle, shotgun, or pistol. I am not sure it is clearly defined but if you google the phrase there is a general idea of what it is.

it is generally only four or so inches long, has a tail mounted switch and frequently a scalloped face. One of the key features, and likely why the reviewer was complaining about all the from the one I bought, is that they cost in excess of $100.

Posted by: yankeefifth at April 22, 2012 01:36 AM (Z9EHQ)

672 Ah, I know! You've just been blinded by the light, and then you hear the deadly 'click' of the on switch.

Yeah ok...

Posted by: HH at April 22, 2012 01:37 AM (KB0hv)

673 As far as the noise a "tactical" flashlight makes, if your safety makes a noise coming off at the same time, the whole exercise is moot. Too many people want to play ninja, when the idea is to win a fight against a bad guy in your house.

investigating weird sounds outside. I am encouraged to carry something
that will hurt what i find.

Technically, no. It's just a flashlight, but built a little tougher and much smaller than your typical bigass maglite, that you can mount on a firearm. Your personal "investigating weird sounds outside" flashlight it just as tactical, as long as you have your pistol indexed to the same point of aim as the light (which you should, when things go bump in the night).

Best free sky watching site I've found is:

http://www.heavens-above.com/

You have to register, but it's basically to enter your viewing coordinates. And you can enter several of them. It will give you a nightly sky chart, tell you where and when to see various space junk along with Iridium flares.

Using Lat/Long data from a cheap ass old Garmin, it placed my observation position dead on.

I've used it to view satellites passing overhead and Iridium flares. It's accurate to the second. All you need is good viewing weather.

If you enjoy watching the night sky as a hobby it's a great place to go to.

I can take the heat even if I am not especially fond of hot weather.

Speaking as a fellow Cub fan - Joe, take the next two seasons off, and enjoy the spring. Pretend it's summer and like every other year, the Cubs are out of the running, then worry about other things. This team is terrible, and won't be any better anytime soon. I'm an idiot Cub fan, so I believe that there is a long-term plan for the club in place, which lets me believe in 3 or 4 years they'll be worth watching again.

Posted by: Berserker at April 22, 2012 03:15 AM (FMbng)


She was a 'socialite' like Paris Hilton. So basically famous for rich parents and going to all the "Cool People" hollywood parties. She's the daughter of one of OJ's attorneys, nowdeceased. And then she had that sex tape released which when that started to get talked about was the first time I ever heard about her.

So basically the conversation goes "Hey did you hear Kim Kardashian has a sex tape" "Who?" "Oh she's blah blah (everything mentioned above)" "Oh ok, is the sex tape any good?" "no not really"

You sound like an old shit who would prefer to scale off a USGS 1954 topo quad (photorevised 1973) than use an old d $30 Garmin.

Dragging locations around their map is a PIA compared to keying in more accurate coordinates. And way out in the boondocks their maps are worthless.

Plus, because it's private, I'm not paranoid about them knowing my viewing locations. For the time being, at least.

The underlying issue is that the US economy is measured to be 70% private and 30% government -- but the 30% that is governmental mainly exists to thwart anything productive from being accomplished by the 70%. It's like hiring seven guys to bake loaves of bread and three to throw loaves out, and counting your total employed at 10 guys while dividing up the spoils of a net four loaves.

When you point out the insanity of this, the bread tossers say, "but some bread is defective and should be tossed -- you can't seriously be in favor of defective bread!" But if you merely sacked the tossers, you'd start with seven loaves that might be put to good use -- maybe some are slightly defective and might be used for animal food....maybe some are brick-hard and might be used as building materials. But the tossers claim their priority of place to burden society.

Yep--they are. Very badass, too. Bred to be rat catchers and fox eliminators. Check it out: http://tinyurl.com/89f3zbq

951 Pretty much all terriers are badass -- and sold to idiots as compact house dogs.

954 Well, guys -- the BH is going to be marching me up and down mountains at the crack of dawn tomorrow, so I'd best get some sleep.

955 Nice chatting with you all. I hope to visit with you more now. It's a beautiful sunny morning here, and while the dog no longer needs a dump, we're off on a good long walk on the Heath.

956 Peter Hitchen's "The Abolition of Britain" is an excellent, yet deeply sad book.

959 "Conservative" here, at least in my corner of

inner London, is a running commentary that sounds very much like a horse

race. It's all about whose winning the popular vote, blaming the other

party, and not changing anything in a real way.

Sad.

968 The draft is a stupid idea, unless we are fighting a war of national survival. As for Iraq, however, it was a stupid war. It was stupid from a military perspective, from an economic perspective, and from a political perspective.

(1) Military Goals - Create a democratic government in an Islamic country. Failed! It stretched our military thin, allowing other folks, the Chinese and Russians, to take advantage of us. The only possible benefit is it might lead to a Sunni / Shia war in the future. One can only hope.

(2) Economics - The Iraq war added massive debts.

(3) Politically - It helped get the Democrats back in control of congress and got Obama elected. Which made No. 2 above even worse!

Let this be a lesson to all, being a hawk is great, defending your country is great, being a patriot is great....but you also have to be smart. Know when to pick your battles, and realize you can't fight on every hill.

Plus there are other ways to win wars, like arming dissidents, creating confusing and revolutions within your enemies lands, and forming new alliances. You don't have to put boots on the ground everywhere in order to get what you want.
