Overnight Open Thread (6-19-2013)

The Secret DUI Factor

That no one wants to talk about.

From Mickey Kaus:

I'm told, by a reliable and well-placed source, that a good deal of the Democratic opposition to John Cornyn's proposed amendment to the Gang of 8 bill has nothing to do with border security. It has to do with DUIs. Specifically, Cornyn's amendment would bar illegal immigrants with misdemeanor DUI convictions from "probationary" legal status, which is the immediate legalization offered by Marco Rubio, et al, to most of the 11 million undocumented immigrants now living in the U.S. For the pro-amnesty side, the exclusion of DUI offenders is apparently a deal-killer. There must be a lot of them!

Pro-Gang Democrats (and Republicans) understandably don't want to publicize their DUI defense. DUI offenders are not an inherently popular group, and accidents in which undocumented immigrant drivers kill innocent civilians tend to be well publicized. It's not a coincidence that Obama's executive mini-amnesty of so-called "Dreamers"-issued before the 2012 election-claimed to exclude DUI offenders. But the broader Gang of 8 legislation, written after the election, allows two free misdemeanors-apparently including DUIs-before an illegal immigrant is disqualified.

So why would they add this exception? Well to put it bluntly illegal aliens have a giant drinking and driving problem. And by illegal aliens I mean young Mexican males.

Even bien pensant NPR reveals their racist face by acknowledging this uncomfortable fact:

Nationwide, Latinos rank second only to Native Americans and their alcohol death rate on the highway. The extent of the problem varies from state to state, but community leaders say it seems worse in places where Latinos have newly immigrated. At Al Pueblo, a Hispanic advocacy group in North Carolina, safety director Tony Ascion(ph) says Latino drunk drivers tend to be young men in the U.S. without their families, people who have a lot of free time and a lot of what Ascion calls, machismo.

While NPR tries to portray the DUI problem as purely situational, the real issue is that in rural Mexican culture drinking-and-driving doesn't have the same stigma it does here and in fact it's considered part of machismo to always be able to handle your drink. Which means never admitting you're too drunk to jump in your truck and drive home.

The end result is that illegal aliens are responsible for a wildly disproportional number of DUI arrests as well DUI-related crashes, hit-and-runs and fatalities. So much so that a special exception has been added to an already generous amnesty bill to keep widespread DUI arrests from gumming up the illegals' legalization process.

Now given all this you might think that MADD would be protesting the bill's DUI exception since they're supposed to be against drunk drivers. But of course not. Which tells you what kind of organization they've morphed into over the years and where their real priorities lie.

Quote of the Day

I so very well remember spending a summer in the Soviet Union in 1979 and being amazed at the alternatives used in public bathrooms for TP. It was not uncommon to see Pravda cut into squares for our bathroom use - a fitting repurposing if ever there was one. And I did occasionally encounter wax paper used for toilet paper. Wax paper is not known for its absorbency. I remember writing my husband that no modern country that failed supplying its citizenry with toilet paper was going to win the Cold War. Apparently, I had more insights to the state of Soviet power than our own CIA at the time.

Quote of the Day II

I'd like to see every citizen receive a basic income of AUD$30,000 per year. No exceptions, no means testing. This is why.

...Imagine the creativity, innovation and enterprise that would be unleashed if every citizen were guaranteed a living. Universal income provides the material basis for a fuller development of human potential. Social enterprises, cooperatives and small businesses could be started without participants worrying where the next pay cheque would come from. Artists and musicians could focus on their work.

So What Caliber is Your Long Bow?

Rac-Em-Bac now offers unique arrows which deliver scent, shot shells, and even bullets for even the most grizzled of hobos.

Finally, we reach the powerhouse of the Rac-Em-Bac offerings, the Bow Mag. The concept here is that you attach a hollow plastic arrowhead (the Bow Mag) to your arrow after inserting a .38 special or .357 Magnum handgun cartridge. The Bow Mag has certain similarities to the 3D-printed Liberator, as the construction is all plastic save for a metallic firing pin. The other distinction is that the Bow Mag is not intended to survive even a single shot.

The Only Truly New Political Idea in the Last 1000 Years

Also where the phrase 'wave of the future' came from.

Sex Jihadis

Okay I'm beginning to suspect that they're just making this shit up as they go. Next fatwa: All unmarried 17 year old girls must spend a year doing sex jihad for uh, Abdul, Khalid, Mohammed and myself.

News emerged a few weeks ago in Arabic media that yet another fatwa had called on practicing Muslim women to travel to Syria and offer their sexual services to the jihadis fighting to overthrow the secularist Assad government and install Islamic law. Reports attribute the fatwa to Saudi sheikh Muhammad al-'Arifi, who, along with other Muslim clerics, earlier permitted jihadis to rape Syrian women.

Muslim women prostituting themselves in this case is being considered a legitimate jihad because such women are making sacrifices-their chastity, their dignity-in order to help apparently sexually-frustrated jihadis better focus on the war to empower Islam in Syria.

And it is prostitution-for they are promised payment, albeit in the afterlife. The Quran declares that "Allah has purchased of the believers their persons [their bodies] and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain (Yusuf Ali trans. 9:111).

On the basis of this fatwa, several young Tunisian Muslim girls traveled to Syria to be "sex-jihadis."

We Are All Cousins

And yet our own ancestors even just 10 generations back are genetic strangers.

Now, there's another important implication of genomic ancestry studies: Most of the people you are descended from are no more genetically related to you than strangers are. Or to put it another way, your genealogical family tree, which includes all the history of your family going back thousands of years, is much larger than your genetic family tree-the people whom genome sequencing would pinpoint as related to you. 99.9 percent of your genome is the same as that of every other human being (apart from the x and y chromosomes), and that .1 percent of variation in each person gets thinned out pretty quickly across the generations, as each child gets half of each of her parents' genomes, passes on half to each of her children, and so on. Geneticist Luke Jostins did a nice mathematical analysis and estimated that you have only about a 12 percent chance of being genetically related to an ancestor 10 generations ago; by the time you get to a 14-generation ancestor, the probability is nearly zero.

2 The Evolution of Man is… Metrosexual?

It has been often commented that modern feminists and the Progressive Left seem to consider masculinity as a pathological illness. Since the Progressive Left abandons all notion of “gender,” it sets the default “normal” as being feminine, thus leaving any and all male attributes as being symptoms of an illness to be cured. Perhaps, though, they see it not so much as an illness but as evolutionarily backwards, with masculinity being a sign of a mouth-breathing troglodyte caveman, and with femininity as being the evolved version of humanity?

32 This illegal's DWI thing is pretty underreported. Here in Northern CA, no DWI checkpoint is complete without one Mexican guy on each side, about 1/4 mile away, with a cardboard sign warning about the checkpoint. As far as I can tell, they are never hassled. Try that in English and see how you fare with the cops.

And then there's the incredibly common accident: a car crashes into another car. A young Hispanic-looking guy gets out of the at-fault car and heads for the horizon at maximum speed. Rarely is he rounded up. This story is so frequent, the cops probably have some sort of catchy name for it.

This is bizarre though. The guy's fiancee was killed by Jihadis in Iraq. He destroyed the career of an important military officer on behalf of Barky, and then when he starts covering NSA-gate he dies in a flaming car wreck.

80 Oh oh oh, could we just talk Jeep for a sec? Now they're going to acquiesce to the nanny whatever for the recall. I have a 2002 Liberty (just turned 60,000 miles, looks new). They had an airbag recall about a year ago. They have done shit-all about it. I suspect this will be the same. Plus the incidence of crisping was so small as to be almost statistically insignificant. Fuckwads, all of 'em.

Oh, and I heard the plastic jeebus scolded the irish about the shortcomings of a catholic education. I don't give a shit about fat Trudy from the NSA copying my work, I fuckin' hate that guy and his butt-ugly wife, too.

I've only ever met one chemtrail believing person. She was batshit nuts.

I remember being stunned at how many crazy things she believed and I said, "So, do you believe the moon landings were a hoax?".

She said of course not. Except for the first one.

Apparently she believed the first moon landing was faked but after that it was real. That was impressively crazy. Pretty sure she also thought they later re-created an actual moon landing to match the initial faked footage done in a Hollywood studio.

The layers of crazy were kind of impressive.

We spent several unproductive minutes trying to figure out what happened when a large quantity of liquid N2 hit a chlorinated swimming pool.

Apparently (according to the PhD chemists at the newspaper), there is at least one person in a coma because of the incident, caused by the "chemical reaction."

What happens when a large quantity of liquid N2 hit a chlorinated swimming pool?

Bupkis, chemically. A shitload of N2 gas released because N2 boils at -196 C, and most swimming pools aren't quite that chilly.

Oxygen deprivation (displaced by the N2; every liter of liquid N2 generating 22.4 liters of gaseous N2 at STP, thereby diluting the shit out of the local O2) might cause someone to go into coma, I guess, much like any other source of O2 deprivation.

Dad calls them 'El Spanyo's'. I call them 'your deductible just went up from the accident with the guy that didn't have insurance, a license or identity'.
They don't even have to go thru alcohol rehab classes after the DUI because they don't speak English and don't have the ability to pay. Only the white kids have to go to Alcohol classes after the DUI.
The part that pisses me off the most about the whole walkin' across the border shit is the fact that good, honest Mexicano's and Filthy, scumbag criminals alike enter at will.

Yeah, weird. I'm still not convinced but there's a pretty interesting interview on Fox with the filmmaker.

I'm guessing since no islamo-wackos claimed credit it wasn't jihadi.

It could have been an Iraqi cell looking to show Clinton that they could play the Missile in Yer Tent game too. Even then you would think Saddam would have made some noise about it.

It would have to be some actor that didn't want any notoriety for it. So .gov ? Mil-contractor? Accidents do happen.

I find it annoying. I don't remember it being nearly this common.

I understand why the do it, but it seems a lot less skillful to just lay down on the ice like that.

Posted by: Flatbush Joe at June 19, 2013 10:53 PM (ZPrif)


It's been around for a while, but it really pops up during power plays and big-game situations like this. In addition to trying to block the puck from getting to your net and avoiding the chance of your goalie dealing with a screened shot, you may be able to deflect the puck in a such a way that you can either get it out of your zone or start a play going the other direction.

Also, if done properly, the goalie can concentrate on the elevated shot.
However, if you go down, you better block that low puck.

If the only mission-critical electronics on board were the solid-state ignition system, you'd probably be OK, in my estimation. That system is already built to handle fairly large currents, and to work at high temperatures, compared to, say, a radio. And the closed hood of the engine compartment makes a partially-effective Faraday cage.

And remember, the destructiveness of EMP is a function of both range from the source, and inverse-square law applies, and also the size of the current loop, or "antenna" available to pick up the pulse. The size of the available "antenna" in a car is tiny compared to power or telecoms grids, or even the wiring inside a home.

Same with the scoring strategy of --just have somebody stand in front of the goal and hope the puck randomly bounces into the goal. I like seeing more skill, more aimed shots, then pinball randomness.

But the goalies seem to be just too good, stopping nearly every straight shot they see, so you have to go for more random, unpredictable deflection shots.

Or, the retard journalist confused coma with headache.


It's amazing that a B.S. chemist, let alone a Ph.D. chemist, would ascribe the volatilization of liquid N2 to a chemical reaction.

A player standing in front of the goal is they guy trying to set up the screen, and usually that draws a defender to assist in the endeavor. They've actually instituted rules in the past few years to deal with this, because the goalies were getting very upset.

Another issue that makes the goalies seem more unstoppable is the size of the equipment, particularly the pads. It's all gotten so much larger in the past 20 years, and a lot of the blame can be laid at Patrick Roy's feet.

Might not be Mexican, so much as Mayan or Guatemalan. My son's birthmom is Mayan and runs about 4'-8", 90lbs or so. It's genetics in action. Most Guat natives are Mayan and fairly unpolluted with the Spanish genes.

Years ago I knew a woman who had Mayan ancestry. I kind of freaked her out because I guessed it immediately. She had the classic Mayan nose.

She was quite beautiful, but the Mexican women I see around here nowadays are all kind of shapeless and dumpy.

I'm gonna need someone to explain to me what "overnight repo trading at 25%" means.

My understanding is that "repos" are overnight repurchase agreements by which many financial firms finance their daily operations. An explosion in the overnight repo rate presaged the demise of Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers, because it meant they couldn't access cash for the next day's operations.

This may be wrong, but is what I took from my study of the financial meltdown here.

(H2SO4)Sulfuric and (HNO3) Nitric are both exothermic and smoke when mixed into water (Fuming Nitric that will smoke in just the humidity in normal air) . Pure (Na) Sodium as a solid does ignites and the reaction creates Sodium Hydroxide that would be bad to breathe.

Posted by: Flatbush Joe at June 19, 2013 11:20 PM (ZPrif)

Some racial groups are more dumpy than others. Dumpy is an apt word to describe a lot of Indian-type hispanics I see when I go to the DC area.

Racial groups tend to have general differences in body shape. (Of course, there are always sexceptions.) For example, I grew up in deepest darkest African and attended a historically black college, and when I went to grad school I noticed a lot of white girls had a certain type of shaped I rarely saw on black girls.

He survived the infections he had and neck surgery to remove infection that went to his cervical spine ( neck) and now he's in a rehab but he can only move his left arm. He was admitted to the ICU (CCU Critical Care Unit in ME) on March 30. I'm going to take Friday off and go see him and hopefully speak to one of his doctors.

From that point on the Feds are carefully walking him through the plot, supplying materials, plans, etc, etc. There's a whole group, but all but one is a Fed.

Usually these nutters never are close to having the technical skills needed to do what they are talking about.

But if you are lonely go out and talk some wannabe terrorist shit and odds are you'll suddenly have a couple new "friends" show up, eager to help. At least for a few months until they build up an ironclad case. After that you'll have plenty of company in jail for the rest of your life.

The fact that these nutters fall for it is kinda proof they were usually too stupid to ever accomplish much in the first place. Not that I'm lamenting them rotting in jail.

Texas case sound like a lot of others -- some nutter goes around talking shit and soon some undercover FBI guys show up saying, hey, we agree with you, let's do this shit. From that point on the Feds are carefully walking him through the plot, supplying materials, plans, etc, etc. There's a whole group, but all but one is a Fed.

If you're talking about the X-Ray article, this time there were apparently two of them. It's not clear when the FBI became actively involved, though one of the suspects apparently tried to get support from both a synagogue and the KKK.

520 On The X-ray death plot.

Handheld battery powered X-ray generators give off ~50Kv and at a couple feet drop below the 2mr/hr a person is allowed to work in 8 hours a day. As one jumps to 320Kv the generator needs 220 volts of electricity minimum and the generator is ~2'X3' and the head won't hide in a jacket. A gamma ray pill dropped in their desk/bedroom might work though.

527 The illegals driving drunk thing is definitely a big problem. The 126 freeway, which runs from the I-5 in my neighborhood to the 101 in Ventura, passes by a lot of farmland and used to be known as Blood Alley before they made some improvements and cracked down on bad drivers intensely.

Ten years ago, if it was after a certain time and depending on the season, I'd take the long way home rather than go on the 126 late at night. Nearly every incident I ever saw reported involved a truck full of drunken farm workers. It isn't as scary now but I still wouldn't be on it late at night without good reason.

Thank you, Vendette, did she have cancer for long? I had breast cancer in 2002. I had one lump that I had removed in 1995 show up again and thought to myself I will show my doctor next time I'm in the office. A few weeks later I found a large lump in same on upper side. I knew then it was bad. I was reprimanded for not having mammograms but when I went for one it didn't show. I had to wait hours for ultrasound and head of women's imaging assured me they were nothing. I bullied him into doing biopsy that day because I had bad feeling. I was right about both.

What you could do is keep a spare ignition module, coil, and pickup coil is a secure metal strongbox that was designed to be an effective Faraday cage. Should the EMP render your ride inoperative, a few minutes' work would see all the damaged parts replaced.

548 You're perhaps missing the point of amnestying the alcoholics: Barky's Uncle Onyango, an illegal alien, was picked up for a DUI.

Since provisional legal status lasts ten years for most of these people before they become permanent residents, DUI convictions will apply to an increasing number of them as the ten year provisional period drags on. If the system was honest (which it ain't) I could easily imagine it denying LPR status to 10% or so of illegal immigrants, mostly men, many with children.

I was once in the jury selection pool for a Hispanic man who couldn't speak English who was charged with a DUI. I knew why he was contesting it - not because he wanted to avoid a DUI on his record, nor because he was innocent, but because it would've possibly meant deportation.

Do they have a functioning national organization and infrastructure. I tend to assume it died a long time ago.

It was evident when he started talking about the Dream Act during the last election, knowing Romney had a hard stance against illegal immigration.

He probably realizes now that it's all over for him. Good riddance.

Heh. I actually don't have that problem. Adults tend to like me. I
just absolutely enjoy solitude. I've taken several long and really long
road trips by myself, on purpose. I also vacation by myself (unless my
friends from deepest darkest Africa visit and we all go somewhere), eat
out by myself, watch movies by myself. I've been that way since I
became an adult.

You keep saying "deepest darkest Africa" like the place has a uniform gradient and there is one specific place that qualifies. In reality, it's an entire freakin' continent -- the one we all evolved on, BTW, so it's got the highest level of hominid genetic diversity on the planet -- and it's a source of unparalleled natural wonders. Where, specifically, are you talking about???

Counting the hours! Tomorrow I go in for my dental work, yay me, but Friday it's party time. However, since said dental work may include the prescription of various pharmaceuticals, it is likely I'll be non-alcoholic for the evening. The up side is we have a designated driver, I guess.


And with that in mind, if there are any NC or southern VA morons who live along the I-85/I-95 corridor who want to attend this speakeasy and haven't the means to get there, I'll be leaving the Refuge NLT 1400 local time and have a couple of seats available. Just sayin'.

639 "The end result is that illegal aliens are responsible for a wildly disproportional number of DUI arrests as well DUI-related crashes, hit-and-runs and fatalities."

I occasionally stick my nose in at various lefty blogs. At one of them (this was a couple of years ago) the proprietor was referring to the "myth" of illegal-alien drunk driving.

I responded with a long, long list of impeccable factual sources on the illegal-alien DUI problem. Arrest statistics from the Department of Justice. Hospitalization numbers from the NIH. Loss figures from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

To include, as the _piece de resistance_, an open admission by the National Council of La Raza that DUI was "the biggest single public health issue" in their community.

What was the response? "You're a racist."

I've come to figure that when I hear that particular panicked knee-jerk response from lefties, what it means it that my analysis is absolutely correct.

The problem is very real. Especially so here in Commiefornia. There are friends of mine who I now will not go see at their homes at night, because getting from my place to theirs involves transiting certain highways that I know are going to be full of wasted Mexicans in big old beater cars, weaving back and forth over the center line. And it's just not worth my life to go out there.

Cop was bilingual, driver had no insurance and spoke no English. Cop warned me that I might get sued because he hit the steering wheel pretty hard and said he wanted to go to the hospital. But I never heard anything. I figured he was either drunk (this happened right after church on a Sunday) or just feared being deported. Did $2000 damage to my car. I've read about some gruesome drunk-driving deaths in the DC area since I left.


Where I live now, the illegals have not shown up. It was such a revelation when we moved here and hired painters, electricians, and flooring people and they were all white and spoke English.

Makes the LRO pics of the Moon look pretty feeble, even though some of those shots (i.e., the Apollo 15 sites, etc.) were shot at a height of just 15 miles in an atmosphere-free environment. Honestly, I could have done better with Photoshop.

Other than proving we went there (and who exactly needed persuading?), I don't really see what we're getting for the money with the LRO. I can see my house with perfect clarity from the Google Earth satellite more than 100 miles up through Earth's dense atmosphere ... not sure why we can't read the license plates on the Moon rovers but whatever. Just sayin' we shouldn't spend the money for results that crappy.

His hatred for the tea party always was the indication for me that he had gone off the deep end. Here were groups created to promote fiscal conservatism, pissed off at government waste and blowing our tax money. And yet Mr. I hate social conservatives branded themsocons for what solely seemed to be because Glenn Beck liked them.. Groups focused on what he always claimed to spout and he hated them.

Jazzy McBikeshorts is for the most part a Twitter troll now. He kept trolling Glenn Greenwald and others sympathetic to Snowden. Kept asking the same obtuse questions, kept saying Crapper's denials meant the story was "debunked"

Greenwald finally decided that life is too short to spend most of it responding to a cretin, so he blocked him. Ponytail wailed his martyrdom after that.

Now he's Mr Centrist since the Left has finally discovered that as an ally he's a waste of air.

The Scientist of Love (his twitter header) might want to delete guitarist with George Duke from his Twitter header since this was found on Duke's website ....

Charles Johnson had left the band (after I gave him money to help buy a Volkswagen I might add) and I began using Roland Bautista on guitar, who eventually took Al McKay's place with Earth, Wind Fire.

727 643 Every day I read stuff like this DUI story and I am glad I moved away from DC. My neighborhood was right next to a slum full of illegals. One of them hit me when my two kids were in the car. Cop was bilingual, driver had no insurance and spoke no English. Cop warned me that I might get sued because he hit the steering wheel pretty hard and said he wanted to go to the hospital. But I never heard anything. I figured he was either drunk (this happened right after church on a Sunday) or just feared being deported. Did $2000 damage to my car. I've read about some gruesome drunk-driving deaths in the DC area since I left.


Where I live now, the illegals have not shown up. It was such a revelation when we moved here and hired painters, electricians, and flooring people and they were all white and spoke English. Even the McDonald's here still hires high school kids. I feel like I am living in the last bastion of what used to be America.


I now denounce myself for being racist.

A few years ago there was a nun killed by a drunk illegal here in Virginia. It was his 3rd arrest for drunk driving, and he was 23.

http://tinyurl.com/k56o9dj

Whenever I go out on the road, I swear 15% of the people are drunk, regardless of the time of day. That is why it pisses me off that the DUI checkpoints are only done late at night instead of in the afternoons. If you want to get drunks off the roads, do it, do pussy foot around with it.

BTW, the accident that killed the nun happened at 8:30am.

Well, not from Laos, but I have plenty from Thailand. I remember before my sister was born (me, 10/20/67, her 9/25/70) and I remember when my younger brother was an infant (him, 5/16/69) so I do have some pretty early memories. My dad would take me to the fancy Dusit Thani hotel for a haircut and 7 Up. Family and parents' friends would stay there when they visited so we'd go over for dinner and occasionally spend the night -- I remember once we had room service (my first room service) and it was those ubiquitous round trays (in this case of chow mein and kao pad); and I recall one morning at a large round breakfast table eating sugar cubes. Lots of downpours too. We lived in a sort of international diplomat enclave (not fenced in, it was Soy 14) -- lots of foreigners including Japanese and a Dutch family with a kid named Philip. My parents taught me to read before I could speak so that may be one reason my memory is so good.

My parents taught me to read before I could speak so that may be one reason my memory is so good.

Well, *that* I don't remember, but my Dad
told me it went like this: "Jamie, point to A (correct), point to Q."
Then they had flash cards with words like "cat", "chicken", etc., and I
got those right to. As I said, I can remember pretty far back and I
cannot recall not being able to read -- of course, the complexity of
what I could read improved over time. Children's brains are sponges.

Once he openly reverted back to the leftist he was before 9/11, the big leftist players and MSNBC lost all use for him, and with some of them not sufficiently trusting TFG over PRISM, he's trolling them as "Greenwald Cultists" and trying to claim that he like his hero TFG is a "pragmatic centrist"

In fact, the store actually has a Men's Issues section! I can cover the whole section with one hand, but they have one!

I had to have the book transferred, so I'll be picking it up tomorrow. Looking forward to throwing a little financial support Mrs. Instapundit's way!

Bar-shu has Fuchsia Dunlop as a consultant. FD was the first westerner to train as a chef at the Sichuan Institute of Higher Cuisine. I've got her Sichuan and Hunan cookbooks.

Part of what makes Bar-Shu so kewl.....and, I suspect, illegal in the US.....is its reliance on Szechuan pepper. In goodly quantities, it tastes vaguely like lemon-lime; it reacts spicily, like a pepper; and physically, it makes your tongue actually go numb [it still tastes].

831 Got my little bitty Core i7 box running tonight. Now I just have to wait four days for the Windows 8.1 test version to become available.

Also close to done on my first Haswell build, a Core i5 system for a friend.

Then some stupid bastard Canadian company went and offered a really nice Fractal Design case for $12. They're Canadian but have a will call site in City of Industry. So I guess it will really cost me a whole $20 after I factor in gas.

It just never stops.

833 I was going to post a link to the case at NCIX and noticed the price is now $109 instead of $10.99 (plus .99 tax), and it's sold out. Makes me wonder if somebody screwed up and they're going to cancel my order.

835 I ran Mint Linux off a DVD to test the system earlier today but I find little appeal in the Linux world. I have a super cheap box I put together recently almost entirely from items that were free or close to it after rebates. I added the cheapified Pentium version of the Ivy Bridge Core i3 and some RAM (4x2 DDR3 1333) I already had to complete the system. It's running the current Ubuntu but I may replace that with Mint if I find I dislike the Unity desktop as much as I suspect I do.

There is a lot of overconfidence there. I recently severely flustered a Linux fanboy who couldn't come up with answers for some of my questions about how he could truly be sure of what was there as opposed to what was supposed to be there. Unless you've examined the code in every last file, you just cannot be sure. Then there is the matter of the compiler. There are all sorts of hijinks that could be done with tricking people into using a 'customized' compiler that does one thing while reporting another.

Convincing whole nations to run a distro that is provided by an NSA front company would be a spook dream come true.

842 We've got another excellent reason to stay the hell out of the Middle East. That MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome)virus, a relative of the SARS, has a kill rate of 65% compared to SARS 8%. The Saudi's have a cluster and it has been found in Europe also. Ramadan and the Hajj, with all those people rubbing together, would not seem to be a smart thing to do.

846 Syria: Islamists seize control as moderates dither
By Oliver Holmes and Alexander Dziadosz
ALEPPO, Syria | Wed Jun 19, 2013
Reuters

So far the Islamist groups have been the ones to attract outside support, mostly from private Sunni [Wahhabi] Muslim backers in Saudi Arabia, according to fighters in Syria.

***and, against our will, from US Tax Payers

Sick. Western Civilization nations' corporations make the forbidden weapons of mass destruction, sell them, and then the corporatists' political puppets have the audacity to cry foul when the chemical/biological or even nuclear weapons are used. We must have more war to end all wars...for the blood money.

"Syria Is Not Libya" Air Force Magazine (4/12) Executive Editor warning not to get the US involved there. Aside from all the politics, our Air Force fleet of airships is still exhausted to the point of break down from carrying the entire "NATO" bombinb missions in Libya. And sequestration only makes replacing the long past expiration date aircraft further away than sooner.

851 Cornyn, good move.

Congressional CYA backlash is motivated by their own guilt in habitual DUI.

Hm, where is MADD?

The DUI charges would be "prejudicial" we'll soon hear Rubio's illegal chorus sing. Officers of the law will be hounded for racism for ticketing DUI dark complected drivers. /Ask Arpaio./ And DUI will become another of those "uncomfortable to enforce" laws that over time become what the Federal Judicial Branch and AG will prosecute local municipalities and states for attempting to enforce.

Unless that chaos is not tolerated now.

Re the Soviet Union and TP:

My mom and dad traveled to Russia in the 1990s (i.e., after the Wall came down), and specifically to the Czar's palaces at St. Petersburg (fka Leningrad). He noted that the main tourist attractions for the whole country didn't have real gift shops and said, "Now I know why they lost."
