Problem solutions will be posted as an update later on.

Note: that cryptic line of letters and numbers you see underneath each board diagram is a representation of the position in what is known as "Forsyth-Edwards Notation", or F.E.N. It's actually readable by humans. Most computer applications nowadays can read FEN, so those of you who may want to study the position, you can copy the line of FEN and paste into your chess app and it should automatically recreate the position on its display board. Or, Windows users can just "triple click" on it and the entire line will be highlighted so you can copy and paste it into your chess app.

___________

So that about wraps it up for this week. Chess thread tips, suggestions, bribes, rumors, threats, and insults may be sent to my yahoo address: OregonMuse little-a-in-a-circle yahoo dott com.

9 Linda Darnell I believe in the long black gown. I think. Mrs. Trump looks lovely in the mint green. That's a beautiful dress. Makes me sad to see the young lady from Afghanistan. Her national costume is pretty but how often does she get to wear it without a veil(that is if she actually lives their)

26 Semi-chess-related: Some of you may know the 1950s-1960s Western TV series Have Gun Will Travel. If so, you know that he had a chess knight emblazoned in silver on his holster (and a similar knight on his business card, shown in every episode). On today's MeTV episode, a character asks him what that silver horse means.

Paladin: "Gentlemen, the symbol on my holster is a chess knight. It's an attack piece, the most versatile on the board. It can move eight ways; over barriers; always unexpected."

I was not entirely surprised to find the episode was written by none other than Gene Roddenberry.

39 Breitbart got a article up about a road pizza/protestor who tried to stop/hijack a fed ex 18 wheeler.

extremely NSFW or with kids around but shows these are looters and rioters not protesters.

The thug blogger filming this is shocked the driver takes off when they surround the vehicle and try to break into the cab(while in the back they bust open the trailer overhead door. The 'victim' is kneeling down so other looters can get in the trailer.

long video, action starts around 26min but before that they are blocking a street with their cars and have a big fire in road.

45 This Frey child is an impossibly perfect parody/reality of the mindless, weak, ignorant, racist, emo, non-entities who now make up a large portion of Dem office-holders.

50 First lady Melania Trump greeted Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his wife, Jennifer Morrison, at the White House on Friday for a state dinner in shades of cool blues - a nod to the island nation’s aquatic lifestyle.

In the evening, Mrs. Trump was inspired by the crashing waves on the Australia coast, wearing a minted turquoise J. Mendel ruffled gown from the label’s Spring 2019 Ready-to-Wear collection, retailing for about $1,500.

The gown’s pleats and ruffles are cut with wave-like trims, while its high neckline and long sleeves are reminiscent of the babydoll-style dresses often worn by Elizabeth Taylor and Priscilla Presley in the early 1970s.

Mrs. Trump wore the gown with a pair matching patent leather turquoise stilettos by Christian Louboutin to finalize this down-under ensemble.

82 Took Linda to the big mall in the suburbs this morning. A lot of stores (Victoria's Secret among them) are still shut. The entire mall seems . . . sterile. (Pun gleefully intended if you want to take it that way.) Glassy store fronts and gray fake-marble panels and dull chrome everywhere. Not too many people when we arrived; when we left the parking garage (which normally is jammed on a Saturday) was about 2/3 full.

Clerks were wearing the stupid masks, and about half the patrons wandering around had them too. Williams-Sonoma had a big sign stating that they'd be glad to escort you around the store, just call their number. And every store, open or not, had a sign out proclaiming "Your Safety Is Our First Concern"!

I bought a sheet set for my bed at Macy's. The clerk didn't wear a mask . . . she had a plexiglas-faced helmet on, FFS.

Just shoot me.

84 Many legal experts giving misinformation about the MN killing by cop.

MN Murder One requires premeditation, unless it's a special case defined by the statute like a forcible rape victim dying.

MN Murder Two requires specific intent to kill someone which is a challenge on these facts unless more evidence comes out. Like the cop knew him and had a grudge.

MN Murder Three is Depraved Indifference and fits like a glove. Depraved Indifference got added to many state statutes to deal with challenges in proving specific intent. Eg if you shoot at a moving train for kicks and kill someone without the specific intent to kill that person.

So the evidence for MN Murder Three is damning, he'll get the full 25 and serve nearly all of it. So why the riots?

94 Duchess of Cambridge in Paris –

There was only one designer Kate could have chosen for her first official visit to Paris.

Chanel - the home of French haute couture since 1909 - provided the Duchess of Cambridge with a “little black dress” with a twist today as she cut a stylish figure in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower.

The 35-year-old royal teamed the sharply tailored coat-dress, which featured multicoloured flecks, with a black Chanel belt and burgundy leather handbag, also by the fashion house founded by chanteuse Coco Chanel.

The outfit, which Kate matched with a trusty pair of fringed burgundy block heeled pumps by the Italian brand Tod’s that she has worn before, won plaudits from the local media as well as fashionistas on Twitter.

Her small quilted “Flap Bag” was made of calfskin and featured a gold enamel handle. It is from the fall-winter 2015/2016 collection, and therefore no longer available on the Chanel website although other retailers are selling the handbag for around £3,000.

The belt, also made of calfskin and featuring the brand’s signature interlocked double C logo, is from the spring-summer 2017 pre-collection, priced £685.

Used to play a game we called schizo.

Two chess sets, and you played two games at once, white on one board, black on the other.

Alternating moves, but if I took an opponents White Piece, I could then place it on the board where I was playing white, for a move.

FAST games.

I'm not sure he ever played with Hey Boy, the hotel errand boy (hey, it was San Francisco in the 1870s!) who was also a friend. Maybe I missed that. Paladin was shown playing by mail with a friend in Alaska. The game is interrupted by the Alaskan having a crisis, which brings Paladin up to see and help him.

In a later season Hey Boy was replaced for a year with Hey Girl, a very cute Chinese errand runner who had a lot on the ball (just as Hey Boy did).

Ace of Spades Pet Thread

CUTU.jpg

(Wonder if the cat's name is Tanya?)

Good afternoon and welcome to the almost world famous Ace of Spades Pet Thread. C'mon in and enjoy the world of pets. Its a wonderful place to be for the next couple of hours. So leave the world and current events at the front door.

***

A Little of This. A Little of That.

Do rescue animals rescue their rescuers? Here is one profound story. H/T m


We have both known pain, fear, hopelessness. We have both had the odds stacked severely against us. Given our histories, Vector and I could each easily be dead.

On October 10, 2011, I sideswiped a taxi while blind drunk, then sped away into the streets of Manhattan. Police tend to frown upon that; I received a night in jail, a hefty fine and a suspended driver’s license.

More importantly, I also received the precious gift of desperation. I was finally scared enough to get sober after years of steadily worsening alcoholism. Despite the disease’s discouraging statistics, I haven't had a drink since.


I believe addiction is a takes-one-to-help-one disease. It thrives on degradation and hopelessness and, to combat both, recovery relies upon identifying with others who compulsively drank and drugged before finding an unlikely solution. That solution is one another: a bunch of former fall-down drunks who went from doomed to deliverance, and whose experiences in addiction and sobriety are invaluable to fellow sufferers.

My dog, Vector, is a more traditional form of rescue. He is alive by the scarred skin of his mauled-off tail and the saint-like kindness of the Sato Project, an organization that rescues strays from Puerto Rico's infamous Dead Dog Beach.

A longer read, but a good one.

Thor Camping.jpg

Hi MH,

This is Thor (named for his bark) camping with the family up on the Mogollon Rim in Arizona. The only thing he likes better is lots of snow on the ground. He’s a husky/mastiff mix so he loves to run in the cold stuff. Thanks for letting me share. - JD

What a beautiful spot to camp. Looks like Thor is right at home there at that spot. Snow? You're always invited up to the Frozen Tundra. We appreciate your submission today.

529Blackie.jpg

Hi Mis Hum,

This is Blackie. Late February I took my mom to a shelter in Spokane, WA to get her a new cat. He's about the friendliest cat I've been around, but he is weird. Except for a little milk, cottage cheese, and butter, he loves butter, he's not interested in people food. He once jumped inside the refrigerator and sat in it, but I think he was still in his exploring phase. He has a habit of sleeping on his back whether on a chair, sofa, or someones lap. Every now and then I'll hear a thump, that's him stretching out and falling on the floor. Because of the goofy stuff he does, and at times he's a doofus, I often call him Goofus. I don't think he minds, or cares.

Jake Holenhead

p.s. I sent and you posted a photo of him in late February a few days after we got him.


Hello Jake and Goofus Blackie. We are happy you shared with us today. Blackie seems to be fitting in there nicely. Well done.

IMG_0417 (1).JPG

Dear Mis Hum,

After seeing your pet morons thread two weeks ago I knew I had to write to you… there were too many coincidences… There was the cat that was a “colored point”, a pet named Angus, and a pet that was rescued in a snowstorm in 2006. All of these things have a lot in common with a colored point cat I used to have who’s name was Angus that my wife and I rescued just before the Blizzard of ‘96.

My wife and I had just moved into a new apartment together, she brought her two cats with her, and I had one of my own named Kitty. To me that was enough mammals in one space. Just as the blizzard was starting, my wife noticed a cat hanging around a dumpster and she knew that if she did not rescue the cat, it would most likely die in the storm, so she brought him inside. When I got home I told her that after the storm was done, she would have one week to find a home for the cat or take him to the shelter. Well after almost 20 years he was still waiting to go to the shelter and he became the best animal I have ever had.

We named him Angus because the first thing we all noticed was that he had really huge balls, reminding me of the AC/DC song “Big Balls,” and at the time I couldn’t remember the lead singer’s name so I just named him after the guitarist, Angus Young. (I’m glad I did because Angus does sound a lot cooler for a cat then “Bon”. This cat was incredibly friendly and immediately bonded with my cat probably because he felt bad for it getting bullied by my wife’s cats.

I can’t say enough how awesome this cat was, sometime he wasn’t even like a cat but more like a dog because he would come to you whenever you called him and he was the quintessential lap cat & would sit on you for hours or however long you wanted him to be there. He was such a laid-back and easy-going cat and the only things that seemed to bother him was if he thought somebody was hurting his friend, Kitty, or if you tried to take his salmon away from him, both of which elicited a very scary growl. He also had these hypnotizing blue eyes and a very unique meow which can only be described as “Mrrraaah”. Angus was a very patient and tolerant cat, putting up with the antics of all of my kids when they were very young. For being an indoor cat, he was a very prolific mouser (leaving parts of his quarry for us to find) and he certainly was a survivor, outliving all three other cats by many years.

Unfortunately, he crossed over the rainbow bridge on December 14, 2012 in the arms of all of us. This was the same day the subhuman shot all of those children in Newtown but I would like to think that God called Angus so he would be there to greet all of those children up in heaven. Godspeed Angus - Joe


Your buddy Angus has been gone quite a while and yet the love for him clearly shines to this day. He was an awfully special creature. We are happy that you got to spend time in each other's lives. Thanks for sharing.

20190907_092351.jpg

I had to put my Weimaraner (Zelda) down this week. It was both awful and beautiful at the same time. She had a massive stroke at 3am on Wednesday and I found her rolling around my sitting room scared and confused. I sat with her and spent a couple hours just trying to keep her calm and mostly immobile. Gave me time to thank her for being such a good girl. One by one I woke up the kids starting at about 430 so they could say their goodbyes. Yeah, that was the hardest part because they grew up with her. My son arrived from VA about 6am to an dog who was wagging her tail in excitement for him being there. It was beautiful and painful. My son and I put her in the car and we went off to give Zelda her last ride. We were both with her when she took her last peaceful breath. I have no regrets and only fond memories. We all will miss her. - Truck Monkey

Jeez Truck Monkey, what a tough way to say good bye. So sorry to hear of your loss. Zelda sure was a looker. Once again, those special creatures aren't with us nearly long enough. Condolences.

IMG_9199.jpg

am a AOSHQ lurker but we have some pets that are especially adorable.

These are Nubian goats. We are borrowing them from a friend while we wait for our baby goats to be born.

We live on 40 acres and the goats roam free during the day.

There is no danger they would wander off- they object if we even go in the house and tend to hang out on the back deck calling loudly to us until we come back outside.

They follow us around everywhere we go like dogs.

I don’t have a nic since I haven’t posted anything since several years ago. I guess I would be Nancy B. if I did post so you can use that.

I have really enjoyed reading the posts and comments at AOSHQ especially during these crazy times.

It’s nice to know there are some likeminded, clever and intelligent people out there. I wish I knew more like you guys in person. Nancy B

Quite the interesting pets you have there Nancy. No mention if they play fetch or any other tricks. Glad you lurk and if you would like to meet fellow Morons keep an eye open for possible MoMes in your area. Thank you for being a lurker and coming out today.

Thanks for the pet thread MisHum. This submission is long overdue.
The guy drinking the McCafe is Jiggs the pug and the lady in the recliner is Maggie, a pug terrier mix. These two really helped Grandpa cope with Grandma's passing back in 2014, but unfortunately we lost Jiggs on April 21st. He was nearly 12, which is a good long life for a pug, but it was still hard on us all.- Prince Ludwig the Deplorable

No need to thank me Prince Ludwig. Cute pups in those 2 photos. So sorry to hear of Jiggs' passing. We are glad you shared with us today.

bigpoodle.png

This is Big Poodle. We've had him for 3.5 years. He enjoys eating sticks of butter and digging through garbage cans. We are convinced he has opposable thumbs because he can get into anything. We had a Fiesta Ware butter dish that had a cover to it. We had a stick of butter in it. We put it on top of the toaster on the back of the kitchen counter so he couldn't get it. He took the cover off the butter dish, ate the butter, put the cover back on the dish, all without knocking it off the toaster.

Amazing creature. - Patrick


You mean that big sweetie is amazing and exasperating all at the same time? I've heard the larger poodles are smart. This guy certainly lives up to the hype. Great photo and story. Thank you for sharing.

Good post today on putting your pets down. Little did I know I was doing it 2 hours later Gracie (the white one)was breathing har so we took her to vet Internal bleeding , probable tumor so we have to do it. Came out of the blue. She was 10 .She is also the dog that found Opie the Opposum. If you remember that post from awhile ago. Rip Gracie. That's Greta her partnering crime - Al

Damn Al. That's horribly sad. We are so sorry to hear of Gracie's illness and death. I can't speak for the others but I do remember the Opie story. Hopefully Greta will be ok without her buddy.

If we learned anything from today's Pet Thread is that life is short and unpredictable. Give those critters an extra S-N-A-C-K and several extra scratches.

A great group of pet photos and stories. Thank you for taking the time out of your schedules to share with the Horde.

Still plenty of photos in the old in-box. We are getting to them. We appreciate your patience. Our address is petmorons at gmail dot com

Have a great week!

43 Not sure about that first pic.

Way, way back in the day - early 90s - we got a very sick, 8-week old abandoned kitty, Sammy, who had been surviving alone on the streets of Jersey City for at least a month. Sammy was a very cool kitty. Absolutely nothing fazed or frightened him.

The minute he was brought home, he - a tiny, ill kitten on antibiotics - immediately went about establishing his house supremacy by taking on our 24- lb. orange tabby, Rustum. Despite Rustum's size, he was a total pacifist and would just stick out a paw as Sammy charged him and we would laugh as Sammy just bounced off and prepared to charge Rustum again and again and again. When Rustum got sick of that, he would just sit on Sammy. Naturally, the two became the best of friends.

Then one day, my husband came home with The Singing Throats of Tuva. Sammy went totally and utterly berserk, howling at the top of his lungs and running around the apartment like he was possessed. Rustum was more restrained in his response, but nevertheless was also clearly disturbed. At least in our household then, Mongolian throat singers and cats never mixed.

60 A few weeks ago, an orange tabby adopted Publius' digs and decided to move in. Publius thought he looked like a "Jake" so that's his name. He's got beautiful golden eyes and no white markings at all. Also, a cocoa-colored birthmark on his right rear pad. The vet thinks he's about a year old. He's all muscle, a beautiful shorthair kitty. He likes to sleep in the living room all day, and prowls outside at night.

Whenever Publius says "Jake!" he responds with "MRROOWW!" A very talkative cat. He can't stay still if you touch him - he'll bump his head against you and snuggle or arch his back, showing off his well-developed, fuzzy balls (my brother said they look like a tarantula fastened to his behind).

I observed that if he was going to become a member of the family, neutering him was the best way to keep him out of trouble. So yesterday we had the dirty deed done. Once we got him home, he wobbled everywhere as cats are wont to do (they always want to walk it off). And he wanted outside. He chose to jump off the deck instead of walking down the steps, weirdo. We wanted to avoid the vengeful peeing that occurred the previous night when he wasn't allowed to go outside (tomcat pee - ugh!) so we let him out.
He disappeared into the bushes by the garage to get straightened out.
A few hours later, Publius' daddy wanted to know where he was (they've become attached). Publius told him he'd disappeared into the bushes, and he responded, "We ain't never gonna see that cat again." I said, "Yeah, he just showed up to USE us to get rid of his balls." Publius laughed and said he'd be back since he eats well here.
Sure enough, he showed up on the deck minutes later, starving and wanting to come in. As he devoured a can of Fancy Feast, we put Sandy outside and then let him in. He proceeded to devour what was left of the dry food in the hall. Then I scooped him up and placed him next to Publius' daddy, who was lying on the couch. They snuggled and he kept stroking Jake's ears, so we left them there for a few hours.
He's not appreciated by the female kitty, Streaker, so we make sure they aren't in the house together. Sandy's not a fan either. I'm hoping that now that he's fixed, he'll be less apt to tangle with the other two.
Publius really is a cat whisperer. My Harli loves him more than my brother and I. I'm not jealous - I'm very happy for the two of them

69 We brought Jake back to my place after his first trip to the vet (shots and deworming), which is just up the street from me. Publius had to get some take out for his parents before returning to the farm. Harli was in the bedroom, so I closed the door. She heard Jake's MROOWW and was alert, but had no intention of coming out to see him. She's a brat who likes to be alone.
Once the new house is built, Jake will no doubt join us there, at least part of the time. Harli will just have to deal with him. I'm hoping she won't be the bitch she was to my brother's cats during her temporary stay there.

70 I had a young, orange, male tabby show up one day. He walked in with the attitude of - I will live here now and so he did.

The next morning as he stood at the door with a rat in his mouth he was dubbed Carmine, as he let us know he was a made man.

On this site, that is very much a non-standard usage of "nice rack."

On rescues rescuing their rescuers, about a month after we got Sally, my wife was walking her, and stepped in a hole, breaking her ankle. Sally's barks brought people to help. However, she wouldn't let them near Mrs Eeyore, so they had to go a block to our home, and get me. Definite proof that we had become her humans.

86 Blackie looks much like my big black cat Wolf. I have a theory that all-black cats, short-haired or long, are the most easygoing and adaptable of all cats. Certainly the ones I've known well have been, and I hear the same from other people. Possibly it's because, to survive the Great Black Cat/Witchcraft Purge of the Middle Ages, black cats had to be extraordinarily adaptable, and being easygoing and friendly would have helped their humans bond with them and hide them during the Burning Times.

Joe's story of his colorpoint survivor Angus (cool name!) is touching. Angus may have had some Siamese in him, and I hear that Siamese tend to be long-lived like that. Both he and Joe were lucky that day his wife rescued him.

Cats can be weird. My big cat when I was a boy, Rusty the short-haired red tabby, loved green olives. We'd slice off little bits for him and he would gobble them up with the enthusiasm he showed for catnip.

He was a big eater. We sometimes slipped him little treats that I know now were not really good for him, like a tiny bit of a vanilla wafer or a crumb of plain cake donut. Never much, and never often, but now and then. But olives made him go ballistic.

The late black cat Marie-Antoinette was like that, but she loved the harness and leash and would run to the door crying when I brought it out. Linda and I would walk slowly along the sidewalk with our black cat leading us, her tail in the air. Must have entertained the neighbors no end.

107 Just managed to shove a Famotidine tablet down Mike Hammer's Cat's throat. Always a fun time. He gets this look in his eye, not of fear, but abject hatred...then the battle begins.

I win about half the time. He's become a master at faking by tucking the pill under his tongue, or in his cheek. Later I'll find the pill somewhere, it having been spit out.

April, my big red tabby Maine Coon mix Arizona passed away when we lived in CO. I took his ashes up into the mountains near Winter Park and scattered them there. Locals told me that bobcats could be seen up there, and Arizona, I thought, always believed he should have been a bobcat, but Mistakes Were Made. Also I had a plaque, "Arizona 1983-1999: I Handled Quarters & Rations, You Handled the Rest," mounted on the wall of the local pet shelter.

The other cats, I have their ashes still. AZ got the big-time treatment.

118 I am going off topic about something that just really grabbed my heart.

In Washington State today there was an Open up Washington rally at our capitol in Olympia. I couldn't attend but I watched the live stream and I felt so inspired and comforted to see some of the good patriots who live in my state speaking up and preparing to do what they can to fight the injustice.

I have lived in Washington all my life. It is my home and I vow it always will be. I will stay here and do what I can.

Others may flee but I tell you what. If the war is lost here it will be lost everywhere in the country. It may take a while in the more fortunate "Red States" but it will come.

It is heartbreaking to see how oppressed we have become. And it is not the fault of those of us who oppose seeing our beautiful home state ruined.

The corruption runs so deep. We who oppose what has happened here have our lives to live. We peacably go about our business as best we can and live with what we have never felt we had the power to change. But it looks like the days for that are over.

Please you all, do not condemn all the citizens of the blue states. We are not all sheep or idiots. We do not all deserve what we are suffering through. We love our homes. We didn't ask to be on the front lines of this conflict. Every state has many people like me in it. Pray for us.

Miss Linda still has the ashes of Marie-Antoinette the smart black cat. After she passed away, we made a trip down to the St. Jude Church on Rampart Street, and Linda lit a candle for her. (We figure Marie has intrigued in Cat Heaven to get herself crowned Queen of All Cats -- an Elizabeth the First among felines.)

I was in a mission support room in the Houston Mission Control Center (MCC) for Columbia entry. A bad frickin' morning. No one knew what had happened until a minute or two after it happened - people watching CNN at home called the Flight Director and others in MCC, and they passed the word on the internal voice loops.

248 Pinback: [making video diary entry] I do not like the men on this spaceship. They are uncouth and fail to appreciate my better qualities. I have something of value to contribute to this mission if they would only recognize it. Today over lunch I tried to improve morale and build a sense of camaraderie among the men by holding a humorous, round-robin discussion of the early days of the mission. My overtures were brutally rejected. These men do not want a happy ship. They are deeply sick and try to compensate by making me feel miserable. Last week was my birthday. Nobody even said "happy birthday" to me. Someday this tape will be played and then they'll feel sorry.

NASA's YT blurb on the feed:

Watch history unfold on Saturday,
May 30, as NASA and SpaceX launch astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas
Hurley to the International Space Station. This mission marks the first
time since the retirement of the space shuttle in 2011 that humans will
fly to the space station from U.S. soil. The mission's first launch
attempt on Wednesday, May 27 was scrubbed due to weather conditions.



Tune in starting at 11 a.m. EDT as NASA and SpaceX provide joint,
live coverage from launch to arrival at the space station. Teams are
targeting 3:22 p.m. EDT for the launch of the SpaceX Crew Dragon
spacecraft atop a Falcon 9 rocket from historic Launch Complex 39A at
NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The Crew Dragon is scheduled to
dock to the space station on Sunday, May 31.

It has the complete Apollo 11, 13 and 17 missions, from one minute to launch to recovery at sea of the astronauts. When I see complete, I mean every single word spoken by all stations of mission control and astronauts is seen in transcripts, you hear all the audio, see every picture taken and every frame of video, in order as it occurred.

It is probably the most technically incredible website I've ever seen. You can spend weeks just watching.

Yes, we should've had a well-established Moon base by now, with manned flights to Mars being routine, and we just now being readying manned flights to Jupiter's moons.

Elon is working on another rocket, the BFR (it stands for Big Fucking Fucket, seriously), which will be bigger than the Saturn V. They're having some glitches, such as this YUGE explosion yesterday during a test:

I work an MDA subcontract as a Lockheed employee under Boeing as prime. They are corrupt, shoulder to shoulder, from every person above the basic level 5 engineer all the way to the top. They deserve to be liquidated with aggression, their capital assets sold off, and the level 5 and below engineers brought over to the other defense businesses.

What we all want to happen to the FBI, needs to happen to Boeing for the same reason. Inept, corrupt, halfassed leadership.


Level 1 = college bs, no experience
Level 2 = college bs, 5 years experience
Level 3 = college ms, or ten years experience
Level 4 = college ms, or 15 years experience
Level 5 = college PhD, or 20 years experience
Level 6 = college phd, or 25 years experience & a college ms
Level 7 = director, no experience, MBA maybe, usually retired military or retired pilot from commercial
Level 8 = vice president, retired military general officer, or possibly an extremely good engineer that survived past level 5.

Basically, the people running the show rarely know what the business technical aspects are and how to run it. Thie is what got them the 737 max, and the 'redesigned FBI kill vehicle', and the failed space line of business.

Is it obvious that I have a 4-hour problem with Boeing?

I didn't know until after my dad died the extent of his involvement in satellite and other space programs- not because it was secret, but because no kids really cared about their parent's jobs. Later, my brother also worked at Boeing for 20+ years, but he is not a fan because of the management changes.

You'd only need 1080 bombs set off.

And, to be fair, for the largest version (Go Big), you'd have a craft of up to 8,000,000 tons.

You'd only really need to do it once.

505 In elementary school, I think 5th grade, there was an evening "enrichment" program, I recall half a dozen of us kids - with a Convair rocket scientist. We learned the basics of rocketry, rocket engines, fuels, etc. This was right in the glorious middle of the Gemini/Apollo era.

I know public education is evil and always awful, except it wasn't back then, where I was. With non-unionized teachers, and parents, of a very different generation.

Saturday Gardening and Puttering Thread, Almost June! [KT]

helicon.jpg

Hello gardeners, putterers and dreamers! It's almost June. Anything interesting going on in your garden? First up today, how about we visit Manny's garden on Kauai? Well, actually it's MrsM's garden. Above, a Lobster Claw Heliconia.

And below, a few of MrsM's orchids.

She grows them on the trunks of her Manila palms in the yard.

orchh1.jpg

orchh2.jpg

orchh3.jpg

orchh4.jpg

Wow. We have some indoor orchid enthusiasts in The Horde. How would it be to be able to grow those outdoors?

The Edible Garden

Manny also sent in some photos of edibles:

Here are two views of an habanero plant grown from seed in MrsM's garden. I used one last weekend to make a Thai shrimp recipe with lemon grass, lime leaves and basil, all also from her garden. It was *very* spicy (!!!) but excellent with coconut milk served over green "BamBOOM" rice

Hidden fire. Is that mint I see encroaching?

habnbas.jpg

Anybody else growing super-hot peppers this year? Taking any safety precautions in the garden?

habn2.jpg

Lemon grass, between her mint and basil (in the background at left.)

lmngrsss.jpg

Here in Central California, our Apriums made it through 107 or 108 degree heat this week without getting pit burn. Yay! And they didn't get stolen. Yay!

We did give some away. Didn't take any photos. Interesting how fruit of different species doesn't always bloom in the same sequence every year. The year I took this photo, the Apriums and Arctic Star Nectarines ripened at the same time. The little fruits with them are an old Plumcot that tastes sort of like perfume. Kind of mushy, not too sweet. Europeans tend to like them.

aprummm.JPG

Farming, Farmer's Markets, Produce Stands

Sweet cherries are on here. First ones were outstanding. Second batch had some doubles (likely due to March rains). Getting better again now. What's on your local produce counters?

If you missed in the first time, Jim asked for some advice on larger than riding mower tractors. Got any recommendations or tips?

Tractor-loader.jpg

The fields up the road from us that had been planted in grapes, then put up for sale, seem to have been bought. There may be a nut grove still available. If anyone is looking for some land.

Gardens of The Horde

Here is my pineapple guava in bloom. It is a very unassuming bush/tree depending on how you train it. Mostly I see it in bush form. It is evergreen with silver green leaves. But when it blooms the flowers are gorgeous. The petals are eatable and have a slightly sweet and pleasant flavor. I haven't tried the fruit yet since this is the first year it will probably actually produce any. I have two of them about 10 feet apart on the west side of my house.

lin-duh

pingua1.JPG

pingua2.JPG

If they are hardy where you live, pineapple guavas are an attractive shrub. Quite easy to care for. The blossom petals have a mild, fruity flavor.

There are dwarf landscaping varieties. If you want fruit (best flavor where summers are not scorching), look for named varieties. There are a couple recommended for areas with hotter summers.

Thanks, lin-duh.

If you would like to send information and/or photos for the Saturday Gardening Thread, the address is:

Include your nic unless you want to remain a lurker.

All my herbs and vegetables have grown exponentially this past week in spite of the unseasonable heat. This weekend it has cooled down tremendously, so I have hope my peas, spinach, lettuce, and mustard greens will really like the weather. (Container gardening)

46 I'm kind of excited to be growing veggies for the first time in ages. After the big D I kind of bounced around, and the townhouse I had was not conducive to anything but begonias and fuchsias in the tiny deck/dirt patch.

This year back at the big house I was laboring over where/how, and thought I wouldn't get to it as there was no place that wasn't solid rock or too much lawn. That's when it dawned on me - that big raised flower bed right outside edging the patio would be a perfect vegetable bed!

Heck, I'm a bachelor now, don't need to impress anybody. I think veggies look just as amazing, plus they feed you! Unfortunately, with the 'rona, a lot of the growers I'd normally get plants from hadn't been at the farmer's market. So, I went with more standard fair out of necessity.

Celebrity, Beefstake and Brandywine. Armenian cuke, Thai peppers, Serreno and bells. I saw at the nursery they've got all kinds of death peppers - not just habanero, but red savina and ghost peppers. Took a pass on those. Lots of herbs, Basil varieties, oregano, cilantro, parsley, thyme... And some marigolds in the blank spots.

The ex actually used to grow for farmer's market, our yard was certified by the county. Then she decided she was allergic to anything from the nightshade family - which means nothing but cucumbers and? UGh. Try gluten and vegetable free eating for a decade.

My orchids have been amazing - I just grow in window. I have one big phaelenopsis that started blooming in January, and just now the flowers have faded (6 months for second time!) however, this year it put up a new spike, and that's opening up now. It's a double spike to boot! So, I'm looking at possibly an entire year of non-stop flowers on one plant!

I sure wish I could grow outside like on Maui, but if there's any advantage to living in CA, it's an extended growing cycle. Really looking forward to eating my first grown tomato for the first time in well over a decade! Any squirrels that try for my brandywine are toast.

So much mechanical genius, with zero electronics, and ZERO "made in chy nah", too.

Watching that old stuff actually working in the fields is awesome. You can easily see why so many of our Dads, Uncles, Grandpas and their friends, were missing fingers or limbs.

I could make the parts and may do that one day. The side panel are superfluous, but the rear fenders I could build up pretty easily.
I bought a new hood for it not long after I got it and cracked it within a month. Glued it back together with Gorilla glue and the glue joint is probably the toughest part of it. If it breaks again though I may try to pound a hood out.

70 Any farmer and many hobbyists will know more about tractors than I do ... BUT I do have five now, bigger than lawnmower size. I just got back in from recovering one of them that sunk in some bog while mowing ... tractor two got it out after a lot of digging by hand.


The two main work tractors I bought first were Zeters (Czech Republic) ... local dealer seemed I could get a lot of name brand (in Europe) tractor for much less than IH or Deere. Some of the alternate brands are cheaper, but looking at weight, they seem a little frail from ones I checked on. Lots of steel seems generally a good thing.


I already had a Farmall M, fairly recently bought a 1963 Farmall 706 because I wanted a cab, and a loader I have will fit it, and my uncle had one. I use it for spraying, and on cold days with snow, the cab with heat will be a luxury. I also bought an Allis Chalmers B for some mowing, also one from my youth.


For most smaller farm work, the old tractors still do a lot of work, especially if they have low hours, but hard to tell if they are the "real hours". I really need low hours and almost everything functional.

The two red radishes, planted from moldy castoffs, are producing flowers, which is fine. They were for fun. The ones I'm watching are the daikon, which need to be thinned soon.

I found a strawberry plant in the lawn, a descendant of the groundcover I planted when the garden had bald spots everywhere. I may find it a new home and see how it does. The birds like them.

Other than that, all the tedious tasks come into play now: cleaning mold off the house, staining and water-sealing, window-cleaning, etc. The storm earlier this week tore up the weedblockers I put around the plants. (Mostly cardboard.) I bought landscaping pins today, as well as picked up the yard.

I thought previous windstorms and polesaw diligence had cleaned the dead stuff out. Nope.

84 I like the orchid photos. So pretty! Had no idea they grew in trees.

Here in Michigan, we're fighting a ground-based orchid. It was intentionally introduced from Europe in the late 1800s and grows multiple stalks from rhizomes. Roundup doesn't kill it.

I'd rather have delicate orchids that are finicky.

Those pineapple guava are so beautiful. The blossoms are like fireworks.

85 Do you get critters inside the fruit?

Yes. Tiny white worms. I have seen their adult flies before. Here's an article on them:

The time to spray is right now or, perhaps, last week and we can't do it.

Ours is a Bing cherry (I think). Fruit ripens approx. last week in June thru first week in July: large, dark reddish-purple and very tasty... I try to not think about the worms... only eat a couple cherries per year.

91 From Idaho's Treasure Valley (Boise area): I was late in reading the overnight thread, but posted anyway. There was a bit of discussion on "persuade me to move to your state". If anyone is not happy where they live, please consider moving to Idaho, especially the Treasure Valley, which is called the Banana Belt of Idaho (mildest weather in the state). Idaho has plenty of water, plenty of hydropower, we grow food here, and most everybody has guns. We've got snow and mountains if you like winter sports, we've got hiking, rafting, marksmanship competitions, and gardens. (Plus, you could meet The Famous Pat*, "accept no substitutes!", in person!)

I haven't had any trouble with my poinsettia, a Christmas gift from a friend in December 2018. Last year, I was thinking about doing the whole reblooming thing as described on Wikihow, about cutting it shorter in April, only watering lightly, then doing the cover-with-a-box thing in autumn to get it to bloom at Christmas again. I did cut it down shorter in April, and watered every other week. My schedule's too erratic, and I was breaking off leaves doing the box-cover thing in autumn - so I just gave up on the box, put it in the dimmest (least-used) room in the house, and let it flower when it wanted to, which was February/March. I've watered it every week all winter, but now I think it's time (and past) to give it a bit of a trim again. As far as fertilizer, I have an ancient bottle of "Liquid Miracle-Gro 8-7-6 with chelated iron", and I put about 6-8 drops of that into its water, once a month or so. It's been doing great.

Now, to our screwy weather. On Fri. 22nd at dusk, I had to run out and cover all the tomatoes and watermelons because we were about to have FROST. (That was at the end of a soggy wet week.) Today and tomorrow it is predicted to be nearly 100 F. And I've had my first mosquito bite of the year.

Let's see -
We've harvested asparagus (nearly done), green onions, radishes, spinach, and now lettuce, so far. I've spotted strawberries turning red, so it's good we put the bird netting on already.

The cantaloupe starts all died, so I planted seeds instead - some have sprouted so far.
We put out our 8 poblano pepper starts, which got sun-blasted and mostly look dead - we'll have to see if any of them survive. If they don't, we'll look to buy some, but if we can't find them, we're out of that crop for this year.
Only 4 edamame seeds sprouted, so I put more in today. I also did some fill-ins on the 2nd variety of corn, and as long as I was there, I weeded out mallow, and lamb's-quarters, and any crabgrass big enough to grab. I left the purslane, because I heard it helps the corn roots break into the soil. Plus supposedly it's edible.
I added a few more basil seeds to my "Third Place Herb Garden". (Wonder if there will even be a Western Idaho Fair this year, for me to compete in? I won three 3rd place ribbons last year, now I'm hooked.) I planted some English thyme seeds, because my 2 small starts are not looking robust enough - I thought I might as well try a backup plan, just putting seeds in the bed to see if they grow.
Something's nibbling on the green bean leaves, so I put some fill-ins into the row, in case some of the plants don't make it.

The 6 watermelon starts look good.
I planted zucchini seeds.
The Beefsteak and Legend tomatoes that my neighbor gifted me still have healthy fruits - all tomato plants are looking good.
I've finally got plenty of carrot sprouts; I ought to thin them a bit. It will be cool to have all 4 colors when I harvest them!

Still doing all right: remaining green onions, remaining radishes, all 3 types of potatoes, spinach, lettuce, shelling peas, blueberry bushes, parsley (2 overwintered!), oregano, sage (had to cut off winter-killed leaves but it's come back strong), 3 new apple trees.

The lily of the valley are done. The purple Siberian Iris are halfway done. The Johnny-Jump-Up pansies by the shed continue to delight. There's a clump by the shed, of mixed-up Fireweed and a tall red penstemon - I'll look forward to the hummingbirds going after the penstemon.

In one of the "blueberry" beds, the one I put hummingbird attracting mix in, I now have things I didn't get last year - Arroyo Lupine (4-5 feet tall!!, multiple flowering stems), and Sweet William Pinks (in white, and pink, and deep red). I need to either save flowers from, or weed out, all the chamomile I grew there previously. I miss the Scarlet Sage and Rocket Larkspur I had last year, but they haven't shown up (yet?).

In the other "blueberry" bed, which might now be better termed the chives bed, I had to pull out a lot of the chives, and cut the bolting cilantro shorter. I made room down the center for a row of hollyhock seeds (we'll see if they grow). And at one end are a few potatoes - since we re-use last year's potato bag soil for this year's lawn patching, occasionally there's a "surprise potato" in the lawn. Those get dug up, and stuffed into a little trench at the end of the chives bed.

Everyone stay safe out there, from viruses, and all other harms...

93 thathalfrican: "Any advice for crabgrass and dandelion infestations, besides weed killer? I want these bastards gone."

Not really, besides the weed killer.

If you really do want them gone, plan on a one year project. Don't fight too hard on spray applications. Just mow and bag the seed-saturated clippings to get the next year's crop down into the low millions for the current year.

Also, to get an early start, apply a pre-emergent herbicide (dithiopyr) now. Current studies conclude that for crabgrass, you make two applications per season in a split application. The reason is to split the dosage over a longer period so that the pre-emergent resides in the top layer of soil longer for better control. It does indeed work, but timing is important.

For dandelion, it's a winter/spring broadleaf weed, so you need a fall pre-emergent for it. And to help the process, just mow the dandelion when you see the flowers. By keeping down the flowering, you stop the prolific seeding. (Try prodiamine or pendimethalin as they remain in the soil longer over the winter compared to dithiopyr.)

Usually, after one season of pre-emergent, you'll be rid of the vast majority of weeds. Then keep the lawn fed and mowed regularly and it'll start taking care of itself. You may even be able to reduce or even remove pre-emergent applications.

One trick I've found to reduce chemical applications is to make one, may two, passes around the lawn perimeter with granular pre-emergent to keep the initial weed invasion down, and that's it. Or look for spots where drainage enters your property and concentrate your attention there since that's where most infestations get their start. You can really reduce your costs and applications if you focus on trouble spots first as opposed to treating every square foot equally.

But I still haven't found an "organic" way of removing weeds from a problematic lawn. Been looking for decades, but at some point, you sort of have to bite the bullet and get after it to get the lawn to a healthy, competitive state. Also, timely aeration is extremely helpful. Grass loves it even though it gets torn up a bit in the process.

The New York Times gets what it wants: riots [KT]

police cr.jpg

Police car on fire outside CNN headquarters
Atlanta

In previous weeks and months, we have been reviewing developments since the New York Times announced last August that it would be focusing its news coverage, as much as possible, on racism (with particular emphasis on Donald Trump, of course). Other media outlets joined in.

Some other news items have distracted the media since then. But they sure have a bonanza of race-related stories to cover now. I decided to go back and look at one of the essays which was submitted by black Americans for the "1776 Initiative", which is aimed at countering the pernicious effects of the NYT's "1619 Project". Might it have some relevance to today's news?

Shelby Steele

Mr. Steele's essay describes how he decided, after the disillusionment of the late 1960s, not to abandon America, after visiting Africa. It explains how both minorities and white elites gain power and a sense of historical place through promoting a continued emphasis on victimhood.

You might want to read the whole thing. What has changed and what hasn't since the late '60s?

When I traveled to Africa back in 1970, it was partly because I had been more and more seduced by this great looming idea of America's characterological evil. It was such a summary judgment, and, at the time, still new and audacious. It had not existed in the original civil rights movement of the 1950s and early 1960s. Martin Luther King Jr. had never charged America with an inherent and intractable evil. He had lived in good faith with America, believing in reform and the innate goodwill of the American character, even as he also lived under constant threat of assassination. Still, when his assassination actually came to pass--with almost macabre predictability--young blacks, like myself (and many whites as well), saw it as a final straw. The evil character of America would always prevail over decency.

I came of age--in my early twenties--precisely when this idea began to take hold. Suddenly it was everywhere among the young. . .

He gets into the development and purposes of identity politics:

The point is that these identities--driven by the need for "place," esteem, and power--keep the idea of American/ Western characterological evil alive as an axiomatic truth in the modern world, as much a given as the weather. In other words, this charge of evil against the white West is one of the largest and most influential ideas of our age--and this despite the dramatic retreat of America and the West from these evils. The scope and power of this idea--its enormous influence in the world--is not a measure of its truth or accuracy; it is a measure of the great neediness in the world for such an idea, for an idea that lets the formerly oppressed defend their esteem, on the one hand, and pursue power in the name of their past victimization, on the other. It is also an idea that gave a contrite white America (and the Western world) new and essentially repentant liberalism.

In this striking vision of the white Western world as characterologically evil, both the former dark-skinned victims of this evil and its former white perpetrators found a common idea out of which to negotiate a future. This vision restored esteem to the victims (simply by acknowledging that they were victims rather than inferiors) and gave them a means to power; likewise, it opened a road to redemption and power for the former white perpetrators. This notion of America's characterological evil became the basis of a new social contract in America.

Things did not look as good in the new revolutionary republics in Africa as Mr. Steele had expected.

He also visited with American radicals while there, and kept track of their lives afterward. They did not seem to lead happy lives. How many of today's rioters even have a Step 2 in mind?

What has changed since 1992?

In 1992, during the Los Angeles Riots, LA had a black mayor. Today, Atlanta has a black mayor who has reportedly been looked at as a running mate for Joe Biden:

"This is not a protest. This is chaos. A protest has purpose," Bottoms said. "You are not honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement. You're not protesting anything running out with brown liquor in your hands, breaking windows in this city. T.I. and Killer Mike own half the West Side, so when you burn down this city, you are burning down our community."

The speech was part of a 9 p.m. press conference after a peaceful protest downtown became destructive. Hundreds of protestors gathered around 3:00 p.m. and peacefully marched against police brutality in response to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. But as the police corralled the protest outside CNN center, some began to vandalize the building and CNN statue and smash the windows of police cars parked outside. One police car was set on fire. . .

"Go home," she implored protesters. "I cannot protect you out in those streets."

Rappers T.I. and Killer Mike both gave speeches after the mayor's address. . .

During the 1992 riots, the California National Guard, United States Military and Federal Law Enforcement agencies intervened. A friend who worked for the LAPD (but who didn't get to the hot zone until most of the action was over) said that the National Guard was not entrusted with guns. They did back up the police while the police did things like this:

los ang 2.jpg

los ang 1.jpg

Would the police force in Atlanta be allowed to do things like that today?

Correction from the comments: Some units of the California National Guard were armed while on the street.

32 Posted this on the last thread, but it fits better here:

Breath of fresh air perspective from rapper Lil Wayne. We need a lot more influential voices with the good perspective like Lil Wayne speaking up and less of the voices of athletes who simply are pushing the racism and anti-cop narratives.

https://bit.ly/2BeCADj

"I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific. ... And what I mean by that is we have to stop viewing it with such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody or a certain race or everybody with a badge," Wayne said during an IG Live chat with Fat Joe.

Wayne continued: "We have to actually get into who that person is. And if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we're doing."

Elsewhere, Weezy gave his explanation on why he doesn't always speak publicly on these issues.

"What else am I gonna do after that?" he told Fat Joe. "Some people put a tweet out and they think they did something. Some people wear a shirt and they think they did something. What you gonna do after that? Did you actually help the person? Did you actually help the family? Did you actually go out there and do something? So, if I ain't about to do all that, then I ain't about to do nothing. I'll pray for ya."

And when asked by Joe if he was asserting that the follow-through is "more important" than a shirt or a public awareness message, Wayne shared more thoughts.

"It's actually learning about it," he said. "What we need to do is we need to learn about it more. If we wanna scream about something, know what we're screaming about. If we wanna protest about something, know what we're protesting about. Because if we wanna get into it, there's a bunch of facts that we think we know that we don't know. ...
We scream about things that, sometimes, they really ain't true."

I never got on the Nikki Haley bandwagon. Yes, she did a good job pushing President Trump's policies. That was her job. No reason to praise her for doing what she was expected to do.

I always am wary of female politicians, because the majority of them --- Democrat or Republican --- seem to default to abortion and socialism and nanny-state and emotion instead of reason and logic in governance.

And I was always skeptical of her after she caved on I think it was the Confederate Flag or statues (or both?) issue when she was Governor.

I am very glad we have seemingly good female Governors such as Kristi Noem (SD) and Kay Ivey (AL). But they seem the exception while the Whitmers (MI) seem the rule.

That part about the National Guard and guns is false. I was there with the 670th MP Co and our Battalion of over 700 soldiers and we were armed with M16s, .45 pistols and shotguns.

Great job last night at the White House by the U.S.
SecretService. They were not only totally professional, but very cool. I was inside, watched every move, and couldn't have felt more safe. They let the "protesters" scream & rant as much as they wanted, but whenever someone got too frisky or out of line, they would quickly come down on them, hard - didn't know what hit them. The front line was replaced with fresh agents, like magic. Big crowd, professionally organized, but nobody came close to breaching the fence. If they had they would have been greeted with the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons, I have ever seen. That's when people would have been really badly hurt, at least. Many Secret Service agents just waiting for action. "We put the young ones on the front line, sir, they love it, and good practice." As you saw last night, they were very cool & very professional. Never let it get out of hand. Thank you! On the bad side, the D.C. Mayor,

We didn't have jeeps, but I did have to get "trained" on all the vehicles in our motor pool. Humvee training was exactly that. Start it up, take the thing out of park, go forward, stop, back up, stop, turn off the engine.

150 134 I'm telling you, IMO Floyd died of a stress-induced heart attack. His autopsy showed hypertension, severe hardening of the arteries, and I'm sure dead heart tissue.

People have survived buried under earthquake rubble, trapped under vehicles, etc. where there whole body was under pressure, let alone three guys hoding down their legs, torso, and side of neck (where the airway ISN'T - ever see a person with a tracheostomy? It's not on the side of the neck) respectively.

The officers were negligent, not responding to the man's complaints (most likely caused by a stress-induced heart attack in progress), but they were not trying to kill him. There were just stupid.

The crowd in front of the White House was obviously a rent-a-mob put there by the DNC, be sure that there were multiple cameras focused on every possible angle, just waiting for *anything* they could use as a campaign ad this fall. That was not a "normal" protest at all.

so, the SS had the hard job of responding effectively, but in such a way that there were NO campaign ads handed out. They didn't have the freedom that the Baltimore cop did.

There is a commonly held belief among many women that they can hit men without consequence, whether it be a boyfriend, husband, acquaintance, bus driver or a cop, without repercussion. This isn't an irrational belief since "never hit a girl" has been drilled into men's psyches, and they know it. Then they're absolutely flabbergasted, shocked, outraged and tearful when a guy they're physically attacking lays them the fuck out.

Someone on the ONT made the point that you can deal with big riots in one of two ways:

- A high body count so people are terrified and dispersed.

The longer we do neither, the longer this will go on, and the more likely the second outcome becomes.

when my brother and I were yutes, my parents thought they were doing us a big favor by buying a really old one real cheap and setting it up in the playroom, so we could have our own tv (and not bother them) Years later I looked it up and it was one of those models that was like taking an x-ray every time you turned it on.

195 Friend from another forum posted this:

Daughter just called. She is Port Authority and is stationed at the Trade Center. These punks tried to disrespect a reflecting pool and the 9-11 museum. The NYPD. Stepped in and maintained order. Her captain was approached by a person who said he found a wallet. Then slashed the captains lip nearly off when he got close. A lieutenant standing near her was hit in the face with a brick. The lieutenant was a black guy so it is just anarchy has nothing to do with race. This morbidly obese women pushed her partner then took a swing when she went for a second go he knocked her out cold. This infuriated her friends but they backed off after that. She said most were young whites in face covering. The PAPD were told to not get involved with the rioters unless the memorials or museum were threatened and to let the NYPD do their thing. She said they controlled themselves very well. Brooklyn is burning.

Sorry, but they were attacking the WH! I can't think of anything that makes you look weaker than allowing the historic home of the POTUS to be attacked. It doesn't matter if Trump was there or not. The WH belongs to all Americans.

206 178 yes. They were negligent in not assuming he could be in medical trouble.

We also need to see the video from AFTER the event started to the BEGINNING of when he was taken to the ground and pinned. Why was he pinned like that? Was it racial, or justified (at least for a short time, with monitoring, unlike here)?

Did it show evidence he was high on some drug such as cocaine/PCP etc that could have made him more susceptible to stress-induced death?

The story seems not so black-and-white (no pun intended) as the media would make us think it is.

Because there is no justice, yes I agree with you. If a man hits a woman in domestic situation, even if she's unhinged and hits him with a cast iron pan or comes at him with a knife, he goes to jail. Beyond that, if it's someone you know (like your wife, for example), moderation may be called for. On the street, though, moderation isn't called for.

Yup. Race is convenient but this is communist street warfare and nothing more. And these mobs popped up quickly and are well-organized. Add in to that the findings in Detroit where most arrested were from out of town and the rumors from MPLS airport that a lot of people were landing to get in on the action, and this looks a lot like an op, likely Antifa.

Antifa, BLM and their sister groups are a domestic terror network. If only there were some federal agency, some bureau, that was supposed to investigate and infiltrate major interstate criminal operations that could have been collecting intelligence and breaking up these people years ago.

And that ultimately means men can beat the crap out of women. Law of the jungle.

I'm hoping that means that his people are watching the communication and money flows around these riots, and are about to pop antifa's backers and leadership.

Of course you are not - because you see yourself as an individual with value.

The Left sees only collectives, not individuals. That's why they don't give a damn that Floyd's family has denounced the violence. They don't care about him as an individual but only as a symbol and an excuse for violence.

Posted by: Donna&&&&&&&V at May 30, 2020 11:55 AM

We are seeing lately that it is not only the Left who sees things this way.

A lot of commentary in conservative circles lately discussing "the police" or "law enforcement" as a collective as well.

I think someone noted yesterday or recently that Minneapolis has 4 precincts with 800 police officers. Instead of denouncing the actions of the one police officer, people are calling the entire Minneapolis police force bad --- 800 officers.

And some people are even going full Colin Kaepernick and full Black Lives Matter and calling the entire nation's police force bad.

That is a ridiculous broad brush that we would not accept if the Left was doing it with Christians or Jews or Trump supporters or military members.

It's like a lot of other things, what training will do is give you "muscle memory," and with live action use of weapon, the person who is trained might not even "know" they can perform under pressure.

But military training has shown time and time and time again, they do. The vast majority of soldiers and sailors and marines and airmen, if they've been trained to fight, when it comes time to fight, they fight.

I've had a lot of time to think about this. And the conclusion I've drawn is, the only reason I've not killed anyone is because I've not encountered a situation during which I had to kill anyone.

Not because I couldn't or wouldn't. Because the situation never arose, but like turning on a light switch, the muscle memory is still there in my brain.

Mayor of St. Paul essentially said, "you are certainly justified in anger over the senseless murder of yet another black man by out-of-control racist white cops, and nobody is madder than me. Not just the murderer but the other three police officers need to be punished severely. So your actions are understandable and justified. Please don't riot though. It will set us back in our efforts to combat COVID-19."

Posted by: Donna&&&&&&&V at May 30, 2020 12:15 PM

Alternate-world response to Americans fed up with mayors' and governors' lockdown orders and storming state capitol buildings armed, but in peaceful protest:

"you are certainly justified in anger over the senseless murder of [5,000 elderly Americans] by out-of-control [heartless politicians], and nobody is madder than me. Not just the murderer but the other [people in his Administration] need to be punished severely. So your actions are understandable and justified. Please don't riot though.

Instead, the response to that is:

"Armed men storming a legislature to disrupt its democratic proceedings is domestic terrorism. It cannot be tolerated,"

So armed men disrupting legislative proceedings is "domestic terrorism".

But rioting, looting, destruction of property and arson is said to be "protesting".

Ann and I are just heartbroken over the death of innocent George Frey and we pray for his family. And while we all work to see that justice is served and that his death doesn't go unpunished, we should also point out that the tone of our civil discourse comes from the top, and when we constantly judge people on the color of their skin rather than the content of their character, our public discourse becomes depraved and episodes like we witnessed in Minneapolis and Atlanta last night become more common.

Personally though, I understand the former United States has been WOROL since at least March.

When Chief "Justice" Judas Roberts sided with the Communists agreeing that the former US is without a functioning Constitution or government in its denial of the Bill of Rights, in particular Freedom of Religion and Assembly, it can also be argued that since the Bill of Rights is null and void, then likewise Article III, Section 1 can be similarly discarded making his Opinion, just that, a worthless opinion.

416 (Kellie) Chauvin earned her associate's degree in radiology and took an internship in the emergency room of Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis. The internship turned into a full-time position, and she stayed for 13 years.

It was at the hospital that she met her current husband, Derek Chauvin. The Minneapolis police officer spotted his future wife when he brought someone in for a health check before an arrest. After taking the suspect to jail, Derek Chauvin returned and asked her out.

"Under all that uniform, he's just a softie," Kellie Chauvin said. "He's such a gentleman. He still opens the door for me, still puts my coat on for me. After my divorce (from her first husband), I had a list of must-haves if I were ever to be in a relationship, and he fit all of them." ` June 4, 2018, Twin Cities Pioneer Press

451 Friend from Fort Wayne, IN sent this to me this morning. "Spontaneous grass roots protests". Riiiiight...

So I had a former coworker who I had no idea was still on my friends list post this yesterday:

BRING A LEAF BLOWER FOR TEAR GAS

For those of you going to the protests:

Be safe.

For folks who are new to social justice actions:

1. Water makes pepper spray worse. Use milk or liquid antacid and water. Don't wear contacts.

2. If you get tear gassed, when you get home, put the contaminated clothes in a plastic bag for later decontamination and shower with cold water to avoid opening your pores.

3. Come with friends and don't get separated.

Avoid leaving the crowd and watch out for police snatch squads.

4. Beware undercovers, but beware snitch jacketing and collaborator 'peace police' even more.

5. The far right is very good at combing through pictures and doxxing people. Mask up.

6. Write any necessary phone numbers you may need directly on your skin in sharpie.

7. Have an offsite plan for emergencies if you have not been heard from by X time coordinated with someone offsite.

8. Make sure all mobile devices are charged!!

9. If you plan on going to jail, plan it: bail, lawyer, time off from work, witnesses i.e.: a cadre. Don't just go to jail without training.

10. Beware folks inciting violence. Most of them are police feds. Watch out for hook ups for the same reason. Get to know the crowd. They will set you up.

No, I think that is fair. Cops-on-citizen deaths are a problem. And as I said when the video broke, I didn't see what led up to the footage that was caught but the continued restraint after the suspect was not resisting was wrong and reckless. It can happen to anyone. But calling in this specific case to "spread the pain" is incredibly stupid, because the context is the riot and not the event.

Most of the rioters probably don't recall his name, it was just that personal and painful for them.

(Time to reprise my suggestion of yesterday: ask the rioters if they're rioting because of the injustice done to Michael Flynn. What's the over/under on the percentage who agree?)

This is a tightrope, and there's no easy answer. I do have some experience with this matter, and it is NO guarantee that if they guy says "all I did was keep her from hitting me," he's going to get to walk away.

Bottom line is, with so many other circumstances, if there's only you and her, and she has no marks on her body (meaning you DID NOT HARM HER), don't say anything. When the cops get there, keep your mouth shut.

Get a lawyer, make them take you to court and PROVE you did something to her, one way or another.

This is the first I heard of the rioting at Lennox, which is uncomfortably close to me, unlike downtown. Not surprising as there has been increasing shootings, muggings, grab and dash the pasty few years. I discourage my wife from going there and now it will be a hard rule.


BTW, the esteemed Atlanta mayor has allowed as she has refused to crack down hard on the thugs despite pressure from the local residents, mostly rich white people. Her outrage and surprise at the riot last night is pure theater. These are her peeps, they just got a little rowdier than expected.

557 What is the evidence that antifa played any significant role in the genesis of these riots? My impression is that those antifa shitheads were if anything johnny-come-latelys to the festivities.

I mean the shit hit the fan that first night; that's amazingly fast response time for antifa to go there. I suspect a lot of pointing at antifa is just a way NOT to blame the bruthas.
Posted by: Deplorable Jay Guevara at May 30, 2020 01:07 PM (OCKbA)

Looking at the 'complexion' of the crowds.

Yes, first night was spontaneous and Black.

IMO Antifa used that as an excuse to Mobilize.

Note the change in the racial makeup of the crowds. The longer it goes, the Whiter it gets.

I think it is also a lot about keeping the Black vote on the Democrat plantation.

I did some Google-fu and Excel-fu earlier this week, looking up the demographic results from the last 4 Presidential elections.

President Trump actually did poorly in all demographics but one: Blacks.

GOP Black Vote:

2004: 1,464,936
2008: 673,124 (-54%)
2012: 989,425 (+47%)
2016: 1,236,848 (+25%)

Democrats cannot let that trend continue.

I was also pretty surprised to see that women outvote men in elections by 8 million votes per Presidential election.

But the GOP % of the women vote has gone consistently down:

2004: 48%
2008: 43%
2012: 44%
2016: 41%

Democrats need to to keep 2016 status quo, except flip 3 states --- WI, MI, PA --- and they win.

I think the lockdown message in states is clear: you vote #Orangemanbad out of the White House in November or we will continue to make your lives miserable. Either with executive orders or unleashing our domestic terrorist mobs (antifa, BLM, etc).

A rather different take:

Looters/rioters - this is essentially an excuse to party as they see it. Rioting, looting, and destroying things seen as great fun, and now they can get away with it. (Consider how often abandoned buildings get their windows broken. What other motivation is there but just the thrill of breaking things?)

Antifa - sees the disorder, and shows up to get in on the action.

As an aside: what's the evidence of church people involvement to any significant degree?

Same thing with gun control. Jill Leovy in her book "Ghettoside" reports that the LAPD was astonished to find a legally-owned gun was involved in a murder. That hadn't happened in three years. Yet leftists focus on legal gun owners, and ignore all the gang bangers with illegally-acquired weapons.

653 This is one of the problems with our disconnected culture (and cities in general.)

-Boston Tea Party- every asshole there (that is a fond 'asshole') knew every other guy there probably by sight. There was probably one guy who they asked, who the hell is that guy? 'He's Sam's friend.'

-this means that your targets are known with some care. Burn down that guy's place because he is a known loyalist, take out that Crown newspaper, etc.

-with this, no one can know everyone involved, so when a guy's business goes up, who knows who did it? Was it a guy who was pissed at the local PD, or a guy with a ear wig who some jackhole 1000 miles away told to burn out that business because it was in the right spot on a map he was looking at?

-the idea that this is white supremacists is laughable. On the other hand, a lot of the early eugenicists were what we would call supremacists. There is more than one path to the same point. Is Soros a racist and does not think much of minorities? I'd say that that is probably one of many of the faults in that geriatric old walking corpse.

746 Like firing a shopping cart with one bad wheel.

The M16A1 was the deadliest 5.56 rifle ever issued. Twenty inch barrel, one in twelve twist, left the bullet so marginally stable that 55 grain M193 would tumble when it hit, and usually would more or less explode inside whoever it hit. They tightened up the twist rate on later 5.56 rifles so that the standard ammo would just punch through without tumbling.

Never heard that but it did overturn the apple cart.

Insurance companies were screaming bankruptcy and personal premiums were escalating. It was a big media bruhaha -

That's when major insurance legislation was passed, the GP (general practitioner) evolved into Primary physician, and people who had Blue Cross, Travelers, or Prudential were pushed into
HMO's or PIP policies. (which sucked)

And the government assumed much more authority over a physician's practice.

805 The M16A1 was the deadliest 5.56 rifle ever issued. Twenty inch barrel, one in twelve twist, left the bullet so marginally stable that 55 grain M193 would tumble when it hit, and usually would more or less explode inside whoever it hit. They tightened up the twist rate on later 5.56 rifles so that the standard ammo would just punch through without tumbling.
Posted by: An Observation at May 30, 2020 02:43 PM (Yx242)

In think you got the original rifling wrong. 1:12 and 55 grain is the sweet spot for accuracy. The originals may have been 1:14,

It's called proximate cause. And the flip side is you can't use any technique because it's possible that it will kill someone with underlying health issues.

Posted by: Kilroy wasn't here at May 30, 2020 03:25 PM (2DOZq)

819 772 he probably died of a stress-related heart attack, perhaps as pretty autopsy with contribution of drugs.

Might not have mattered what the police did after initially subduing the guy, he was probably agitated before that.

Sorry, that is a the strong medical possibility.

Posted by: Techie at May 30, 2020 03:25 PM (TnwAJ)

820 819 perhaps as per the autopsy, that should say

Posted by: Techie at May 30, 2020 03:26 PM (TnwAJ)

821 The defense lawyers are going to need to know exactly what he died from.

then they can see if they can tie it to anything the police did or did not do.

Medical matters like this are fairly complicated.

The media and the mob just wants the guy lynched, I'm collateral damage to innocent people and businesses be damned.

Posted by: Techie at May 30, 2020 03:29 PM (TnwAJ)

822 The main problem for me is not the technique but that the guy tapped out and the cop stayed on top of him. These techniques aren't lethal in and of themselves or they wouldn't be used in MMA .

Posted by: Techie at May 30, 2020 03:22 PM (TnwAJ)
You have chokes which cut off air flow to the lungs, and you have strangles which cut off blood flow to the brain. It requires a lot of brute force or leverage to choke someone. You have to push that windpipe closed, but a strangle doesn't require nearly as much strength. A rear naked is a strangle, even though it looks like a choke. Your forearm and upper arm form a V with either side of the V pushing on each of the large veins/arteries in the neck, and it requires little effort. Watch someone try to pull off a clock choke and you'll see how hard they have to crank.

Posted by: DFCtomm at May 30, 2020 03:30 PM (50gG9)

824 From watching the video it looks like he was strangled to death slowly. It looks like the Carotid was forced closed against the left shoulder, and of course the Jugular was forced closed by the officers knee.

2. Nobody knows how much pressure was being applied to the neck, but it likely wasn't very much, which is why the police officer allowed himself to be filmed.

I don't think you understand what it's like to have that much weight pressed down upon you. You should let me show you how a knee on stomach works. It's a very claustrophobic feeling and you just want to struggle irrationally, and if you are having trouble breathing that makes it 100X worse. It takes a while to learn how to deal with that. You can't breathe so you struggle which makes the cop apply more pressure, rinse and repeat. He might have had a weak heart and suffered a heart attack from that type of excitement and exertion, but that really doesn't change the situation.
The office was a lazy fuck who was bad at his job and didn't know how to property restrain a person. I can tie you up and control every part of your body and never restrict your airflow, unless I want to. I can even allow you to sit comfortably if you don't struggle. It can be done from the back either sitting or prone.
I've practiced with plenty of cops at my MMA gym and I would trust any of them to restrain me, because they know how it feels to be on the bottom. This cop had no clue, and it's obvious from the look on his face that he had no idea what he was doing. He had no idea he was killing the guy, because he's as calm as a cucumber.

Posted by: DFCtomm at May 30, 2020 04:24 PM (50gG9)

831 We've been conceptualizing the media issue completely wrong. It's not a free speech issue primarily; it's a discrimination one. The fact that the news media is controlled by a single political faction is a national disgrace and de facto disenfranchisement.

We should force them to reform like we did the rural south. Revoke all press access to 80%+ liberal news orgs, fine them mercilessly until they change. It's the only way the nation climbs from the abyss.

Posted by: mjg235 at May 30, 2020 04:37 PM (ucLrH)

832 830 how much weight, exactly?

give me a figure in pounds per square inch during those eight minutes.

Maybe it was nearly nothing.

I can modulate my weight on my knee in that position.

I suspect you've never been in a position like that either top or bottom, so you have no idea what you can or cannot do. That kind of thinking is what got that cop in the position he's currently in.

Posted by: DFCtomm at May 30, 2020 05:08 PM (50gG9)

She was so right about "stealth" nominees with little record.

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter came out this morning criticizing President Bush's nomination of John Roberts arguing, "[W]e don't know much about John Roberts. Stealth nominees have never turned out to be a pleasant surprise for conservatives. Never. Not ever." Coulter explains, "And it makes no difference that conservatives in the White House are assuring us Roberts can be trusted. We got the exact same assurances from officials working for the last president Bush about David Hackett Souter."

Supposedly organized by a (leftist) student group but is actually driven by out-of-towner Massholes (even though one lives in ME, she is originally a Masshole).Since NH is still under a state lockdown where gatherings > 10 are not permitted -- just as our Catholic Bishop and priests --- this will be happening.

The Supreme Court is what I thought it was - 4 conservatives, 4 liberals, a Politician, Roberts, who stands in the middle like Judge Kennedy used to be, making sure each side gets what he thinks are the appropriate number of wins.

Trump needs to win, and there needs to be one more replacement before we actually can have a conservative Supreme Court. And of course, as soon as that happens, the votes will all be 6-3 because THEN Roberts will jump onto the winning side.

But have no doubts - RBG, Breyer, Kagan, and Sotomayer will *always* vote exactly the way that Soros orders them to vote.

As soon as he got onto the bench, it turned out that his actual judicial philosophy was "The Government is Always Right." Whether it's the local police, or a D.A., or a legislature confiscating property, or an Executive becoming a Dictator, he would hold that The Government is Always Right.

FISA court cannot be reformed, as long as it exists in any form, it can and will be corrupted. So we want to track foreign contacts? Get a regular judge to give you a warrant, just like with anyone else.

Right. The FBI initiated "reforms" in 2002 (under Mueller) then violated those reforms in 2016. Wray's changes will do no better. NOBODY is held accountable for lying to the FISA court. End it.

No one is shot, no buildings burned, everyone goes home safely.

Government officials and the press have a hissy fit.

Thousands of people show up to a "protest" which devolves into a riot where buildings are burned to the ground and people lose their life's work.

Government officials and media offer words of encouragement.

Regular judges issue warrants on the basis that the govt has shown probable cause to believe a CRIME has been committed.

FISA courts issue wiretap orders on the basis that the govt has shown someone is likely acting as a foreign agent.

These 2 things are not alike, & I don't want spies to wander my country doing their thing unhindered.

Regular judges aren't legally equipped to deal with suspected foreign espionage.

Zero & his corrupt deep staters misused & abused FISA. They lied to the FISA court regarding Flynn. The solution to that is not to throw out FISA altogether, unless you can suggest an alternative better than "regular judges issue a warrant." It isn't possible to establish probable cause that foreign agents have committed a CRIME. The idea is to keep them under surveillance, including especially their phone communications.

Possibly, but our Detroit police chief was on Tucker last night, and he said that in 1967 he was so alarmed by the riots that he didn't know what to do. He said his father forced him to join the police department if he wanted to make a change. I think a lot of police are good. A few are assholes and want a job where they get paid to be an asshole. The chief said his people know he has no problem getting rid of bad policemen.

Although I don't live in Detroit, I always say I'm from Detroit. I think a lot of people do. Besides that, when I'm out of town is I'm asked where I'm from, if I say Detroit, people know. If I say Birmingham, people think Alabama or England. Everybody's heard of Detroit!

287 These 2 things are not alike, & I don't want spies to wander my country doing their thing unhindered.

Regular judges aren't legally equipped to deal with suspected foreign espionage.

Zero & his corrupt deep staters misused & abused FISA. They lied to the FISA court regarding Flynn. The solution to that is not to throw out FISA altogether, unless you can suggest an alternative better than "regular judges issue a warrant." It isn't possible to establish probable cause that foreign agents have committed a CRIME. The idea is to keep them under surveillance, including especially their phone communications.
Posted by: mnw at May 30, 2020 10:04 AM (Cssks)

This is what I used to believe, I understand the position completely. It was mine for a long time.

This is why I was wrong:

First, "spies" wander this country unchecked because it's a free and open country. They always have, they always will. We deal with it, we don't need to keep deep dark secrets like the ChiComs and Putin do. What kind of secrets do we need to keep? Apple i-phone specs? Apple and every other tech company we have has already handed everything they got to the ChiComs willingly.

Regular judges aren't equipped to deal with espionage? They were in WW2, they were throughout the cold war. There was never any need to say that we needed "Special" Courts for this, the opportunity was created out of fear because of 9/11, and the DeepState seized the opportunity to use that fear to massively increase their own power. That was wrong, absolutely wrong, for us to allow. They had the chance to stop 9/11 with all the tools they had, they just blew it. They'll blow it again, if something like that is threatened again, no matter what power we give them.

Every failure they make, they say MORE POWER! MORE POWER! But they don't need more power, that's just an excuse they make up for their own incompetence using the tools they already have. They don't need FISA - they *want* it, because it gives them more power over us, but they don't need it.

FISA is not a tool to "protect" us. That is just an excuse. It is a tool to Oppress us. That's why they want it so bad.

Plans never survive first contact with the enemy.

but the left's plans aren't really very good for them, if you sit back and look for it. They just wait for shit to happen somewhere and exploit it, that's all. But think about it - do you think it really helps them now that they have completely destroyed the economy of what was supposed to be one of their best run cities, Minneapolis? Minneapolis is taking an economic knockout blow that they're going to be fighting for the next 30 years, just like happened to Detroit in 1967. The left is standing in public, pouring gasoline on their own heads and setting themselves on fire, and thinking that is a good "plan".

I don't mind a difference of opinion but when you ignore and make up facts to support your opinion you deserve to be smashed.

Shorter take -

Robert's logic was the church was being held to the same standards as some other venue without explicit constitutional protection.

369 Walmart and Costco that have 1000 people in them are safe. Churches with 50 people and restaurants with 25 people must stay closed.

370 So far, all quiet in Rochester, MN so far. That said, the Tavor TS-12 is loaded with 16 rounds of 00, just in case.

371 So, Roberts betrayed his oath again.
=========================

So, is this a decision by the court, establishing precedent? I don't recall oral arguments. Is refusing to stay the church restrictions binding forever?

I am grasping at straws here, I Know

yep - that dude from St. Paul was saying that "everyone arrested was from out of town." Well GUESS WHAT? YOU'VE BEEN RUNNING PRIME TIME NATIONAL ADS FOR THE LAST THREE DAYS SAYING "COME HERE! FREE STUFF! NO POLICE!!!"

how can anyone be surprised those ads didn't get results?

Yes. They seem to align perfectly with talking points seen in the NYT and WaPO.

Like most liberal mayors, Frey (Justin Trudeau's Cousin), is a fucking idiot. He's telling everyone it's okay the city and your business is being burned down. Then he talks a little tough. Then he says it's understandable people are stealing TVs.

Where are you getting the weather updates or the Cape? I've also been looking for launch chats that were around for Shuttle launches. I'm out of the loop now. Maybe someone here can save me some time. Thanks!

Posted by: pawn at May 30, 2020 10:34 AM


I'm just looking at the Dark Sky forecast for Cape Canaveral; it's usually pretty good. It tracked well with the reported weather during the launch window on Wednesday

Don't we have 67 counties? (I was not here in sixth grade, so I never learned the counties.) 16 counties seems like only frontier areas.

All decisions by the Court establish precedent. It's binding until the Court decides to overturn it.
