3 Good Morning Morons. Today is Saturday, January 12, 2013. On this day in 1773 the first public museum opened in what is now the United States. The museum is still open to this day and is located at 360 Meeting Street, Charleston, SC 29403.



So here we go

4 Senate commies are calling for Obama to destroy the debt limit by executive fiat using the so-called 14th amendment scam. The media is only too happy to blast this out when it is obviously a negotiating gimmick to cow crying Boner.

6 One of the most bizarre rape cases I have ever heard about. A 16 year old girl who was passed out drunk was “allegedly” carried around from party to party by a High School football team in Steubenville, OH where she was repeatedly raped. The case has blown up with death threats to local law enforcement and witnesses. Have the yoots of today become savage animals? It sure appears that way.


And the picture here makes my ass want to chew tobacco and spit. I have grown to hate the sight of those stupid Guy Fawks masks. The Brits are right to celebrate his drawing and quartering with bon fires. Perhaps the assholes responsible for this rape should be drawn and quartered as well.

8 The US Government has issued a warning to all computer users to disable Java as hackers have found an open window in it that can be exploited. Since I run FF with ALL scripts disabled as a matter of course this is no news to me. I started that the last time I picked up a virus that was riding an ad on a popular conservative web site.

9 This is actually an old story but evidently the legal battle has picked up. A CA electric car company is suing Obama’s DOE over denial of loans. They say that they were denied funds so that the funds could be diverted to Obama’s political cronies (FOOB). This should make an interesting case, discovery will be awesome.

10 Hannity has jumped on the secession wagon now? It could be done, after all the actual founders believed it was legal. The Constitution is a contract between the States. When one party to the contract is in active breech a contract can be nullified. I would prefer an Art V convention myself before going this route.

17 Two members of one of the most corrupt cities in the US give Obama a BS tag labeled “Taxation without Representation”. Yes they are pushing that old crap again. They want to have two senators as well as a “voting” representative instead of the unconstitutional nonvoting hack who gets to serve on committees.

I have a solution. Move the capital to a 2 mile radius designated somewhere in the middle of the country. Make it part of no State and make it illegal for anyone to live there as a permanent resident. Restore Washington, DC to the States it was originally pulled from and eliminate to the stupid hack now sitting in the House.

Oh and Obama’s tag, send him a new one “No Representation Without Taxation”.

Senate commies are calling for Obama to destroy the debt limit by executive fiat using the so-called 14th amendment scam. The media is only too happy to blast this out when it is obviously a negotiating gimmick to cow crying Boner.

My question is, since the amendment states "The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law... " couldn't a futureCongress come back at some point and declare that any debt racked up by the President was never legally authorized and thus is not valid?

63 I went for my annual physical at the VA the other day, and the super duper health care act is taking its toll there. There is a heavy influx of new patients as a result of returning vets, and more so, folks whose doctor is no longer taking medicare or those who can't find a doctor period. My particular clinic (I don't know if this is VA wide) is preparing to change the usual 12 month cycle for routine checkup to 15 to 24 months. Also, as a result of the influx, doctors time with patient is being cut. I am on my third doctor in two years.

95 While people worry about batteries and electrical issues about the Boeing 787, please remember its competitor and its teething issues.

It seems the tiny wings issue in the Airbus A380 should be fully fixed by the end of this year. It has affected 17 of the 70 in service. Problem is faulty brackets that hold the skin to the inner structure. And there is still the thrill of R-R Trent engines in the A380s failing or even exploding.

103 The Martin B-26 Marauder. Not the Douglas A/B/A-26 Invader.

The Marauder was called the Flying Prostitute due to its wings seemed too small to support it. Or One A Day in Tampa Bay due to all the ones going into the water after an engine failure.

It took Jimmy Doolittle to prove the plane could be flown on one engine and devise a better training program for the plane to save it from being cancelled.

If you have downloaded and applied No-script to Fire Fox you should have a menu bar in the upper part of the screen with an "options" button.


Click on the options button and under the options you should see a choice for "allow Mu.nu". Click on that.


That will partially enable scripts. Note also the "temporarily allow all scripts this page". You can do that to watch the videos posted or ads.

I find that the site loads much faster if you leave all that blocked. And it is also much safer.

120 Okay time to borrow MPPP's movie pulpit.

The movie Catch-22 used B-25J Mitchell bombers. In fact a whole medium bombardment squadron, 16, were assembled to film the movie.

Talmantz Aviation was tasked with assembling and getting flying all those Mitchells. Many were derelicts when retrieved. All the top turrets were quick and dirty props fitted to the fuselage, they did not reopen the fuselage. They also tackled all the aerial camera work from their specially modified B-25 which had a special nose to fit a movie camera. They even filmed some aerial shots from the tail-gunner position. It was a very dangerous location and one cameraman fell to his death from the tail.

An airbase for the movie was built in Mexico. This is where all the principal filming on the ground and air happened. There was far more aerial footage shot than was shown in the final movie which is a shame.

But if it wasn't for Catch-22, many of the B-25s on the civil registry today would not exist.

Nope. Javascript was originally called something else (Livescript, I think), but its name was changed for some inscrutable reason -- marketing maybe?

Anyway, the Java problem will apply only to those who are using Java 7. If you have a computer more than, say, 6 months old and you haven't specifically downloaded Java 7, then you're ok --- Java-wise.

149 For those not technically inclined: Javascript is not Java. They are not the same. The options in firefox is available only to disable Javascript. The better route for Javascript is the Noscript plugin (combination of blacklist and whitelist for allowing sites to use Javascript) for Firefox as mentioned above.

The Noscript plugin is combination of blacklist and whitelist for allowing sites to use Javascript. It is insane how much Javascript is used these days.


On to Java (not Javascript).

From one of the links above @38 (there is another link in this quoted text to a how to):

"With that in mind, what's the quickest way to disable Java? On systems running recent versions of Java, the Java control panel can be used to immediately disable the plug-in for all installed browsers."

Unfortunately for me, disabling Java (not Javascript) is not an option (due to Java based Entrust authentication). I'll have to wait for a patch and for the sites I need it for to update, while browsing somewhat less securely with Adblock and Noscript in Firefox.

The act should have two sections: the first creates a federal board to license journalists and media companies. Prior licensing of a constitutional right is allowed under DC v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (200.

The second creates a 5-day waiting period before a licensed journalist or media company can report a murder with four or more victims. A brief delay before a constitutional right can be exercised has been held harmless many times. Threat of loss of license will guarantee compliance.

A mass murder will therefore be 'old' news when reported, eliminating the erupting mess of rumor and speculation we presently see with coverage-from-the-start. This calmer atmosphere will reduce the attractiveness of mass murder to infamy-seekers, who want to make the world spasm, saving many lives.

Here's a direct link.

188 How to make fried grits:

Cook as usual, then refrigerate until firm. Cut into rectangular sections, dredge with flour, and then fry in oil until both sides aare brown, flipping once.

I respectfully disagree in the strongest terms possible while maintaining respectful communication practices.

Cornbread is made in a cast iron skillet. After said skillet has been greased and floured only it's bacon grease and corn meal. It is baked. Hardly a muffin. Fried is the substitute when there is no stove available. Some would call them hush puppies or corn cakes.

I am making a run to Sam's today and am going to see if they have bags of grits. My daughter likes cheese grits and I thought that might be a good thing to serve with ham, so I am exploring. Am also heading to Aldi (same side of the county) to get cheap eggs.

Cornmeal mush is something my dad used to love for breakfast. It comes in rolls and is compressed cornmeal and something-something (maybe fat). He used to fry it in bacon grease. His preferred method of eating it was with syrup. I like it with just butter, salt, and pepper.

I have a feeling I am going to have to resurrect a lot of my poor years recipes.

You youngsters won't probably remember this, but it was customary for bacon (served OFTEN for breakfast) to be fried, not boiled or microwaved.

After it was done, the bacon grease would be strained and saved in a can so that it could be used for other things on days when you were not frying bacon, as in the fried corn bread (aka Pone) mentioned above.

269 Teej : .223 and 22/250 comparison. The 223 Remington (AKA 5.56 NATO) is a short cartridge (think .222 Rem) 22/250 I would describe as a medium length case. The 22/250 is a necked down 250/3000 savage case, hence the 250. The 250/3000 is a necked down 300 savage, close in size to .308 Win (7.62 NATO). The 3000 in 250/3000 stands for 3000 feet per second. Great whitetail buster. The 22/250 can also be loaded up real hot rock, approaching 4000 fps like the 220 swift. Bore life is not to good at these speeds. 22/250 ammo is common, but not like .223 was a month ago. Confusing but fun.

Any time I see one of those Guy Fawks masks I think "cocksucking dunce" and the burden of proof is on the shithead wearing it to prove me wrong. I have no idea what's going on on the Stupidville rape but I have a feeling we're hearing a very abridged story. Admittedly the videos I've seen of the perps make them look like complete assbags, and maybe they are; but when I see Guy Shithead saying they're gonna "out" all the relatives of the perps, I'm thinking that's pretty fucking dumb too.

Something is missing from this story of why the girl didn't press charges. In a suburb of Cleveland some high school sports studhorse had his kollidge athletics aspirations put on hold when a girl that he tuned up went to the cops and a jury said "Fuck this shit". The look on his face when the verdict was read was pretty classic because he did *not* expect things to go down that way. Maybe things are different in Stupidville but the usual MFM shitheads shouldn't get a pass by saying "this is how it is for all athletes" because it's not.

316 @305 Heh. Due to a tragic oversight, two cities and a county never did any maintenance on the Roman-vault deep brick sewers built under my area 1900-1926. So along they came with a proposal (after 20 years of "mysterious problems") to replace them with shallower plastic pipes. There was a public meeting.

The citizens' main concern? They wanted to make sure that the rebuilt streets would not have sidewalks. Sidewalks just bring the criminals closer to your house.

There is a tradition that a "yard" is somehow related to the distance an arrow flies, shot from a yew longbow. I doubt that's true -- pretty sure the fabric measure came first -- but, I approve.
