The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"Anyone with any doubt who the bad guys are here ... be certain it is the City of Tempe, City of Phoenix, and police forces valleywide. There is no excuse for pointing an AR-15 in the face of a non-violent offender."Dustin Shomer


Quote II

“No, no, the country’s finished,” Actor Hugh Grant


Quote III

Never in human history have so many rich, pampered, cosseted people of all colors steadfastly refused to see how good they have it, or been so unwilling to defend the very system that gave them every single privilege and comfort they enjoy. They are still looking for the Magic Victim Lotto Win, even if they have to pay their own attackers, deface their own property, or put vulgar epithets on their own birthday cakes.Ammo Grrrll


Quote IV

That folly has deformed our politics. Now, in 2020, voters are faced with a choice between two parties led by conspiracy theorists and gaslighters. Instead of saving America from Trump, the Resistance may have reelected him. Eli Lake, Bloomberg Opinion.


Quote V

"The pole stigma is associated with sex work, but sex workers whether they're on a pole or not are humans, too, and shouldn't be discriminated against for providing a service as old as time," Steven Retchless, 2010 American Pole Fitness Champion.


Quote VI

If the political culture forbids respectable politicians from raising certain topics, then the electorate will turn to unrespectable politicians. Mark Steyn

This is what Steyn is talking about.

Here is a recap of today's Impeachment proceedings............

Yup, President Hillary Clinton would have been proud of her SCOTUS nominee and his decision. Justice Gorsuch rips activist judges a new anal opening.

On Monday, the Supreme Court allowed the Trump administration's public charge rule to go into effect, striking down a nationwide injunction from a New York judge. The rule allows the government to deny green cards to immigrants who receive public assistance and are therefore considered a "public charge."

In addition to the 5-4 decision allowing the rule to go into effect, Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch issued a concurring opinion rebuking activist judges and their rush to apply "nationwide injunctions" against Trump administration policies.

"Today the Court (rightly) grants a stay, allowing the government to pursue (for now) its policy everywhere save Illinois. But, in light of all that’s come before, it would be delusional to think that one stay today suffices to remedy the problem. The real problem here is the increasingly common practice of trial courts ordering relief that transcends the cases before them. Whether framed as injunctions of 'nationwide,' 'universal,' or 'cosmic' scope, these orders share the same basic flaw—they direct how the defendant must act toward persons who are not parties to the case," Gorsuch wrote.

Autonomous vehicles without steering wheels or pedals? Am I the only one who thinks GM is nuts?

Last week, GM-subsidiary Cruise unveiled the Origin, its first self-driving car without a steering wheel or pedals. At the time, the company’s CEO Dan Ammann promised to reveal production details in the days to come. Well, today’s the day, with GM announcing plans to spend $2.2 billion to retrofit its Detroit-Hamtramck plant for the production of autonomous and electric vehicles.

In addition to the Origin, the facility will also produce all-electric SUVs and pickup trucks. The automaker plans to release 20 electric nameplates by 2023, the first of which will be an electric truck slated to go into production in 2021. This will be followed “soon after” by the Cruise Origin, a shared, electric, self-driving vehicle unveiled in San Francisco last week. Detroit-Hamtramck will be GM’s first “fully-dedicated” electric vehicle assembly plant, the company said. (The news was first reported by The Detroit News last week.)

Even carnival rides have "some" supervision.

Did you know that Kobe Bryant was a saint? Neither did I.

The Washington Post has suspended a journalist after she tweeted about Kobe Bryant’s historical sexual assault case shortly after the basketball player and his daughter died in a helicopter crash.

Felicia Sonmez was put on leave after posting a link to an article about the 2003 rape allegation against the former LA Lakers player, with the newspaper saying her “poor judgment” in sharing the story had undermined the work of her colleagues.

It raises questions about how to deal with the media legacies of much-lauded individuals and which aspects of their lives to highlight in the immediate aftermath of their deaths.

Sonmez did not write the piece, which was published by the Daily Beast in 2016 and is entitled “Kobe Bryant’s Disturbing Rape Case: The DNA Evidence, the Accuser’s Story, and the Half-Confession”. Nor does she cover sport – she writes for the Washington Post’s politics team.

One fewer mouth to feed on the Arkansas welfare system.

Hunter Biden has agreed to pay monthly child support retroactive to November 2018, ending a standoff that began after the judge in his Arkansas paternity case ordered him to appear in person for a hearing to explain why he shouldn't be held in contempt.

The court redacted the amount of child support that Biden agreed to pay, pursuant to his agreement with plaintiff Lunden Alexis Roberts. However, Independence County Circuit Court Judge Holly Meyer noted that she "lacks sufficient information" to determine the appropriate amount of child support "based off the defendant's income," and that modifications to the child support owed each month could be made based on additional evidence.

Contempt proceedings over Biden's failure to turn over relevant financial documents have been delayed until March 1, giving Biden an opportunity to resolve the issue in the meantime by turning over the information.

If there are any Lefties reading tonight's blog. This is what Facism and Nazis look like. Auschwitz Death Camp liberated this day in history.

On January 27, 1945, Soviet troops enter Auschwitz, Poland, freeing the survivors of the network of concentration camps—and finally revealing to the world the depth of the horrors perpetrated there.

Auschwitz was really a group of camps, designated I, II, and III. There were also 40 smaller “satellite” camps. It was at Auschwitz II, at Birkenau, established in October 1941, that the SS created a complex, monstrously orchestrated killing ground: 300 prison barracks; four “bathhouses” in which prisoners were gassed; corpse cellars; and cremating ovens. Thousands of prisoners were also used for medical experiments overseen and performed by the camp doctor, Josef Mengele, the “Angel of Death.”

ICE Detention Centers are not Nazi facism.

So who is contributing to "global warming"? How about those pesky politicians. Those emails which are required by law to be saved for umpteen years, you guessed it, "Global warming".

NEW YORK – Everyone has seen warnings at the end of email saying, “Please consider the environment before printing.” But for those who care about global warming, you might want to consider not writing so many emails in the first place.

More and more, people rely on their electronic mailbox as a life organizer. Old emails, photos and files from years past sit undisturbed, awaiting a search for a name, address or photo of an old boyfriend.

The problem is that all those messages require energy to preserve them. And despite the tech industry’s focus on renewables, the advents of streaming and artificial intelligence are only accelerating the amount of fossil fuels burned to keep data servers up.

Right now, data centers consume about 2 percent of the world’s electricity, but that is expected to reach 8 percent by 2030. Moreover, only about 6 percent of all data ever created is in active use today, according to research from Hewlett Packard Enterprise. That means 94 percent is sitting in a vast “landfill” with a massive carbon footprint.

What's as bad as TDS? Anything Brexit, including coins.

It is a debate that has torn the nation in two, ripped friends and family apart, and entrenched deep and uncrossable lines throughout the land. Should the Royal Mint have used an Oxford comma on its Brexit 50p piece?

Three million coins bearing the slogan “Peace, prosperity and friendship with all nations” are due to enter circulation from 31 January, with Sajid Javid, chancellor of the exchequer, expressing his hope that the commemorative coin will mark “the beginning of this new chapter” as the UK leaves the European Union.

However, early responses include His Dark Materials novelist Philip Pullman’s criticism of its punctuation.

“The ‘Brexit’ 50p coin is missing an Oxford comma, and should be boycotted by all literate people,” wrote the novelist on Twitter, while Times Literary Supplement editor Stig Abell wrote that, while it was “not perhaps the only objection” to the Brexit-celebrating coin, “the lack of a comma after ‘prosperity’ is killing me”

The good old days, no cell phones, no GPS units. Just good old maps.

Gone are the days of printing out directions or following physical maps. If you’re trying to go somewhere and need directions, there are plenty of apps to update you while you travel in real-time.

But nothing is foolproof and that’s what drivers using the Google-owned, navigation app Waze are finding out after they were sent many miles away from the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey, according to Jackson Police Department’s public information officer Lt. Christopher Parise.

Do we have the new Jusse Smollet? Meet Dr. Joseph Sakran, anti-gun activist. And fake hate crime perpetrator?

Is a Prominent Anti-Gun Physician Lying About Receiving a Death Threat From Gun Owners?

Dr. Sakran could not be reached for comment on the over 250,000 people who die annually — more than six times the number of firearms deaths — due to medical mistakes and malpractice (that’s according to, er, Johns Hopkins).

He’s been the subject of fawning profiles and interviews by Gun Control, Inc.’s adjuncts at The Washington Post, Forbes among others. But it appears that Dr. Sakran may crave still more attention.

The good doctor issued a flurry of tweets yesterday announcing that he’d been threatened and implied that he suspects the culprit is targeting him due to his gun control advocacy.


UPDATE


That's odd, Dr. Jusse errrr I mean Dr. Sakran removes the entire thread of his life horrifying experience.

Militant atheists once again ruin a good thing. Say goodbye to dog tags with Bible verses.

A battle is brewing in the military over dog tags that contain Bible verses.

A dog tag is basically a nameplate used to identify injured or dead soldiers. Every military soldier carries two, one usually worn around his or her neck, and the other usually kept within his or her shoes.

According to the First Liberty Institute, a legal non-profit that defends religious liberty, secularists with the notorious Military Religious Freedom Foundation are actively seeking “to undercut our troops’ spiritual readiness by denying them the ability to obtain replica dog tags with Bible verses inscribed on them.”

If snakes don't bother you. If you are competitive. The Florida Python Bowl might be the sport for you.

Once again, we have a winner in the annual contest of your dreams -- your very, very bad dreams, that is.

More than 750 people from 20 states turned up for Florida's 2020 Python Bowl, catching 80 of the giant invasive snakes, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said in a release.
The grand prize winner in the 10-day contest is Mike Kimmel, who caught eight Burmese pythons, the commission said Saturday. His prize was a Tracker 570 Off Road all-terrain vehicle.

It's all fun and games until some classless idiot ends up injured or worse.

The simple website “Selfies with Homeless People” shows people taking pictures with homeless people. They collect and share images from people around the web who have posted pics of themselves with homeless people, as if being homeless is something to laugh at. Needless to say, it’s disturbing and offensive. You’ll feel your blood start to boil the more and more you look at these pictures.

Even lowly city aldermen are too good for us. And one is tonight's Genius Award Winner.

ST. LOUIS – A St. Louis alderman is in the hot seat again, accused of driving without a license.

St. Louis police cited Alderman John Collins-Muhammad Tuesday for "speeding in a safe zone" and “driving while revoked.”

Fox 2 asked Collins-Muhammad on Thursday if he’d gotten his license. He didn’t answer. Our news crew saw him leave city hall, get into his car, and drive off.

People can be so vile. Yet people can be so good. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A man in Alberta rescued three kittens that were frozen into the ice.

Kendall Diwisch says he was doing the rounds near one of his wells near Drayton Valley when he discovered the helpless kittens.

"So today I found these three fellows on one of the back roads near one of my wells. Most likely dropped off. Poor things were frozen into the ice so they had to have been there all night," Diwisch said.

Thank you for your prayers. Husband and daughter are home with bruises and a hairline fracture in her arm. The lady who hit them had sneezed, and lost control of her car. If she had been two inches to the left, she would have hit them head on, and they would not be home right now. As it was, the car was in pieces over 50 feet, the undercarriage completed ripped off the frame.

72 Re the Gorsuch piece, it's been my feeling for a while that, as big a deal as the Left made over Kavanaugh, Gorsuch's actually been more effective in advocating a conservative judicial ethos. Ironic given how little fuss was made over him going to the bench.

78 Evening all,

Thank you for your prayers. Husband and daughter are home with bruises and a hairline fracture in her arm. The lady who hit them had sneezed, and lost control of her car. If she had been two inches to the left, she would have hit them head on, and they would not be home right now. As it was, the car was in pieces over 50 feet, the undercarriage completed ripped off the frame.

God is good, and he gave me you guys. I am so grateful to you all.

I clicked on that Jonah article underneath the Mark Steyn box.


PDT is not presidential? He is an awesome, very successful American that chose to run for our Leader. He is working to make a more prosperous country for all of us who want to work and improve.

When the Founding Fathers wrote about what a prospective good president would look like, they are describing Donald J Trump. A very successful businessman, knowledgeable and experienced with national and international laws, business, finance, and powerful people, President Trump is exactly the kind of guy they envisioned.

Goldberg instead pines for the trappings and comfort of the Deep State, all the cogs that make it up, and how very small and unimportant his part of it truly is.

173 Damn pixy, try again.

Confirmed 2,714

Deaths 100

Recovered 47


It is only 60% from Hubei province, not 90%. That's consistent with the huge number of people who fled before the quarantine. Probably means the spread within China will be faster then they initially anticipated.

Also means spread outside China will depend on how good each government is at containing the influx.

Britain has had 2000 return from Wuhan and has not bothered to check them.

174 I also recall reading he didn't bother to push for charges against the GIs who shot a bunch of SS men out of hand at Dachau.

Patton, Military Governor of Bavaria, refused to bring charges against the soldiers at Dachau, despite recommendations from senior officers that he do so.

American soldiers liberated Dachau, and were so incensed by the conditions there that they distributed arms to the prisoners, and both soldiers and prisoners then spontaneously executed most of the guards. (A number of the guards were spared because prisoners vouched for them.)

A fitting retribution.

There's an annual festival, Roots 'n' Blues 'n' BBQ, which is just what it sounds like--lots of good music and food. Kinda pricey, but worth going to at least once. Anyhow, the owners have announced that this year will have an all-female lineup, to rectify, as they put it, the fact that women aren't represented enough in the blues genre. Also, they're removing "BBQ" from the official name, because reasons. Not inclusive of other foods, or something.

So that's one more thing ruined.

It is the *the* key to Trump's success. What really stuck with me, from fairly early on, was a campaign rally he did in New England, I think in New Hampshire. He had just been given Secret Service protection.

He complained about it (jovially, of course) because he knew that if he got this far he was going to win and he would have a protective detail for life - and as a result, he would never be able to drive his Rolls Royce again.

The crowd went nuts. Laughing and clapping, etc. The next days, one of the news bobble heads was shocked that the rubes were so accepting of a man who complained about not be able to drive a car the likes of which they would probably never see in person.

It's called "authenticity." I strongly advise all politicians to give it a shot. Be yourself. Not "I'm gonna get me, uh, a beer" like Warren.

Authenticity is good.

264 The political class in Portland is planning a vote on a massive new transportation bond in November (spending as much as possible on mass transit and as little as possible on roads), but as property taxes in the Portland area go through the roof, they have a new tax idea.

A local income tax - but only on people making more than $100,000 a year (to be added to the already high state income tax).

The northern suburbs of Portland are in Washington, which has no income tax. A lot of affluent people in Oregon have moved north for that reason (it's a little tricky, since Oregon will still tax you if your employment is in Oregon), but I guess the Portland political class wants to see how many more people they can get to move.

Yes! GPS is *awesome* for getting you from A to B, but it tells you where neither A nor B are with any context.

My parents recently moved to a small city in TN. I lived at their new house working from home for a month so I could take care of all of the stuff the new house needed before they moved in (fair amount of maintenance, some upgrades, etc.).

After the first week of using my GPS to navigate to stores and the like, I got really frustrated because I didn't *really* know where anything was. I went to the local CoC (hey, they're good for something!) and got a local map. After an evening hunting down stuff I knew and had been to and marking it on the map, I sat down and studied it. Made all the difference in the world. I actually know my way around now.

271 There is a lot of concern about car accidents being caused by texting. After an accident do the police check into that as a cause?

They do now because there is a respectable amount of case law on the issue. For a riveting read about the very first court case about texting while driving, see Matt Richtel's A Deadly Wandering, about an accident in Utah in 2006 in which a teenager driving on his way to work drifted over the yellow line while texting and caused the deaths of two scientists. What makes the book compelling is Richtel's discussion of the impact of new technologies on humans' ability to focus attention as well as the forensic dimension of the case.

I like GPS to get me to a part of town I don't know, or far away from me, etc. But not to learn a place - it quickly becomes a crutch and I don't learn where anything else.

+1 on the offline GPS. You can go get a little dashboard one, etc. that tend to work well. If you like using your phone but want an offline SatNav that doesn't seem to call home all the time and spy on you and require the internet, I use a package called "iGo" for Android. It isn't especially cheap but it works really well and doesn't need data.

I hope they've tested that in dev/test.

Buddy of mine was a database consultant and they had a serious problem when a parent for some reason entered an emoji as her kindergarten child's middle name (which it apparently was, on the birth certificate - extremely bizarre). Crashed the database. Totally couldn't handle it.

The vendor called in *everyone* to try to fix it. The emoji caused all kinds of totally insane behavior and corrupted the entire registration database. They restored it, developed a patch to keep that from happening, and then had to tell everyone in the district that if they registered on that day then they'd have to redo it because they lost data.

Don't know what the tower at Van Nuys said...but had he not had such a high profile client on a direct flight to Thousand Oaks....dime to a dollar...bet he was thinking about bailing out there just for how bad it was getting.....such is that one in a million bad choice...

I was at the Van Nuys Airport observation area that morning...soup was down below 1000 ft. Only the IFR boys in the G-6's and equal taking off that morning... even LAFD had their Agusta's pulled into the sheds...

Posted by: vmom 2020 at January 27, 2020 10:59 PM


Is it still being taught? It is a learned skill.

You have to figure out where you are on the map. This involves knowing your general location (town / county / state) and the street / highway you are on. (hopefully the street / highway is on the map)

Once you find that, you have to orient the map to your direction of travel. It helps to know your compass heading. You also have to know the map's orientation (usually north but not always)

Then, you can figure out the next cross street, and read that out either by reading the text at an angle, or re-orienting the map, keeping your place on it, and realizing that your movement is now no longer straight up.

I learned this so young that I don't remember if it was taught in school or by my dad or grandparents. I have no idea if this is still taught or being passed on.

475 I have a good sense of direction, as long as I can see the sun or stars I know where I am. (I have noticed that night time with heavy, low overcast loses me completely)

I impressed my dad once when he and I were touring the Chickamauga battlefield in Georgia. He was a big Civil War buff, and for research there was one monument that he really wanted to visit, but it was remote and no road ran reasonably close to it. So I got out the battlefield map marking where it was, reckoned where I was, and took note of where the sun was over my shoulder. We took off walking cross country through some freshly downed timber, pretty rugged, and after about a half mile of that, when he was getting discouraged that we were walking aimlessly in the woods, we came out into a little clearing and I had hit my goal within 25 yards.

I was always kind of proud of myself for that one.

But Walt's nephew (from the business side of the family) still owes me for beer in Hungary. He didn't have Hungarian forints.

Apparently I felt my faith so seriously, that that I could not let a thirsty billionaire pass by of the other side.

Then again I was pretty thirsty too, and the local place in Hungary is always just around the corner from the Factory.

There were some "macho" guys around here who liked Kiss.

Also Bowie made great music. So did the Dolls. There was some good glam rock and then there was fag rock. They're not the same.

Kiss was fag rock in case it's not clear whose fans I'm insulting.

I remember being on some Air Midwest puddle jumper years ago who came in hot on the runway and bounced back and forth from tire to tire 3 or 4 times before he finally got it all the way on the ground.

And I remember one Braniff flight on a perfect weather day coming in to Phoenix, big plane, we're approaching the runway, I got a window seat, I'm thinking "wow look at those people in their pools in their backwards, they're sure close" and I'm thinking runway better be coming up fast. And then I feel the pilot go absolute full throttle on every engine while we're just about brushing the tree tops in peoples back yards, and then finally there's the perimeter fence which I'm sure the landing gear cleared by about 12 inches, and he managed to touch down on the absolute first scrap of asphalt on that runway.

I've read something not as bad but similar happened with President Nixon; he was once asked what his favorite Mexican restaurant is, and he named someplace (I believe in San Clemente), that had a Mexi name and a few dishes but actually also had a much wider-range menu.

But after Dick named it his fave Mexican place, they had to change over to all-Mexican fare.

I understand the single pilot on this flight (the S-76 most times has 2) was a top drawer stick man with massive hours in this air frame.
Still, even the best sometimes fly into some nastiness that for that very instant, overwhelms their skill sets.

Based on what I've seen, he knew he was in the shit and attempted to make a Left 180 out of his predicament to go back to better vis and ended up starring into a hillside at a 100+ mph's....thinkin "I should a" in the last 2 seconds of his flight....

yep, it goes just like that.....and the post crash debrief always points to 1 or 2 "last chances" to make a better decision. Pilot error of the most tragic type.

That's my call....

566 Bernie could be the 2020 Trump.

Nah. Even if it were true, I don't particularly care - the shit will well and truly hit the fan if Trump is defeated, even by a so-called "moderate" Democrat.

And Bernie won't win - Trump mobilizes working-class whites in the Upper Midwest, Bernie mobilizes millennials in Brooklyn with nose rings who borrowed six figures for a worthless degree. Slight difference.

Don't I know it. I have a small pile of them. They run from '67 up to '73. When I started they were still the amp to have, although metal started getting real aggressive shortly after, so they kinda fell out of favor. Shame really, they really cut through the mix nice back in the day. If you're going to do old classic rock or metal or AC/DC they are the shit. I'll never get rid of them.

588 @462. Agree. I watched the trajectory and the timing of the communication and it just looks like he lost his bearings over 101 right at Calabasas when he needed to go north and not west.
Such a tragedy for the families that were just excited to go to the championship games.
He probably flew in enough bad fog that he thought he'd mastered it. Maybe coupled with celebrity client pressure. Who knows but tragic.

We had a dear friend who was a pilot who died by overestimating what he could do in a new plane.

Kind of like in sailing we always say: they're are two kinds of captains. Those who've run aground and those who will.

Controlled flight into the ground.

Listened to the flight tape earlier today, Pilot to Controller.

Pilot had asked for "Flight Following", which is a dedicated Radar Lock on the aircraft, so that the Controller can advise the pilot as to routing and known hazards on an ongoing basis.

Last transmission of the exchange, was the Controller advising the Pilot that the aircraft was too low for Radar to track it.

There was no reply. Impact had occurred.

Here's what I don't get. That Pilot had to have carried a Pilot's License, endorsed with an Instrument Flight Rating, Multi-Engine Rating, Turbine Rating, Commercial Rating and ATP (Air Transport Pilot) Rating.

He was a Flight Captain carrying Human Passengers for Revenue. ATP is required, and you don't get an ATP till you get all those other tickets punched, first. In the order I'd typed 'em, too.

Now, it might've been that that particular S-76 wasn't fully IFR equipped, but I'm also pretty certain that it carried at least the basic required IFR instruments and navigation radio.

Finally, it's on the Pilot to find a suitable patch of land, be it Little League field, Wal Mart parking lot, or whatever.. it's on the Pilot to choose to put he thing on the ground NOW, when conditions close in like that.

And the FAA would've blessed his every move, had he done so.

Paperwork for an Emergency Landing would be a pain in the ass, but at least he and eight others would've been alive.

Gonna be interesting to see what he NHTSB puts out in their Initial and Final Reports.

600 There is a Canadian turbo-prop airliner crash that seems to bear some relation to this helicopter and bad weather.

The plane was on approach but the field was socked in. Pilot descended but then called an abort because the clouds were not clearing. It seemed he was going to go around bu then the low altitude warning kicked in after the co-pilot expressed concern. The plane augured into the ground killing all aboard.

It turns out, even with what he knew the pilot still lost track of the conditions and flew the plane into the trees.

He came down and we had a great exchange of gifts and a great meal we did take out from the best Italian restaurant around, it's tits. The cool thing is his gift to us was a new generation robotic vacuum, because he understands that shit cripples us. It's a Neato D7, especially mentions it deals with pet hair, we will see. It's wireless so you can program it to run on certain schedules like everyday at night, that sounds cool. That said J is going to have to program it cuz I don't think I'm capable.

So sorry to hear about the accident with moki's family . Has anyone heard from slap weasel lately I'm wondering how he's doing?

The best part was he said he called impulsively. He was getting that kind of Wisconsin winter Blues. Said he really had to get out of town and we hadn't seen him for ages. I just feel great that we actually can enhance his life a bit. His sick as we've been lately I ldon't know how much we've been Hanson anybody's life but we did it today, very cool.

But I'm fairly certain all the "he's just an actor" and "Bedtime for Bonzo" snark from people like --well, from people like the person Jonah Goldberg has proven himself to be-- probably was intended to indicate to the common mass of humanity, what we now call, "deplorable" and "bitter clingers" (clinging to their guns and religion), that Reagan wasn't Presidential, and that they had made a mistake in electing him in 1980; and that they had sure as shit compounded that error by believing their lying eyes (not to mention their lying bank accounts, paycheck stubs, mortgage interest statements) by reelecting him in 1984.

In short, what Goldberg misses is that Trump is only as Presidential as the #resistance allows him to be.

637 You might as well ask what was going through the Lufhtansa Captain's mind at Tenerif in the Canary Islands before his 747 plowed through a Pan-Am 747 while both were in the fog.

The terrorist threat to the main airport set the chain in motion because the planes were diverted to Tenerif. Then the German captain requested a refueling. Then two things happened, the other airport reopened and Tenerif's fog rolled in. The radios in the airliners were such that they could cancel out receiving directions from the tower simply by keying them. Then the German captain, who was known for brooking no dissent even as he was the airline's safety pilot, fearing they were going to run out of flight time before completing the flight failed to hear tower directions, rammed the throttles forward, and ran over the other 747 that had become lost on the runway in the fog.

And that is how a lot of people needlessly died.

661 ..one person asked: "Toward the end of the flight, the pilot seems to inexplicably, (at least from the info in the recordings in the below youtube link, which all seem legit) change the squawk from his assigned 0235 to 1200."

Posted by: booknlass at January 28, 2020 12:23 AM (xIKXj)



This I had not heard. Going 1200 means he would've automatically lost his Flight Following by ATC.

1200 is the Transponder Code for Visual Flight Rules. ATC Radar can still "see" you, but your Transponder is no longer telling THEM, what particular aircraft and "N" number is being reflected back to their Radar.

In other words, you're now anonymous to ATC.

/BREAK


Nurse Ratched. There are more IRF equipped light aircraft flying WITHOUT Radar, than there are WITH. With some exceptions, you start to see Radar on piston twins, and on to turboprop twins and jets.

Radar on single engine fixed wing aircraft aren't "rare", but they're not prevalent, either.

And frankly, I have no idea if that S-76 carried a radar, anyway. Oh, and this. An aircraft radar is *primarily* calibrated to see other aircraft, and weather.

Unless a Pilot specifically adjusts the Radar Set in pitch, range and power-level, an aircraft radar isn't very effective ground-finder.

And Radar Altimeters are a separate transponder, facing downward. Again, equipment more common from the light twins, upward.

Plus this. When we sail, most of us are crankin' right along at something under ten knots.

The pilot is almost always on the high side of 100 knots. Shit just happens so very much faster, up there. Reaction time is often tragically, only enough to utter "oh shit" before the recorder stops.

Plus, navigation in three dimensions, vs. two. I never have to look at a boat's instruments to determine where I am in relation to Sea Level.

We all naively wonder how one can get disoriented and not know which way is up, how high off the ground one is, etc, etc.

When we stay on the surface of the earth, it's easy to think it's easy. Now, get in three dimensions without a reference, and it all goes to hell.

Pilots in small private planes sometimes will demonstrate just how easy it is. One thing they'll do is put someone in the jump seat. Now, we're flying level right? Yes. Then they'll do some maneuvers, putting a little g this way and that, in all 3 dimensions.

They then ask the passenger to tell them are they level. The passenger will fail miserably. He will be totally screwed up.

One I remember hearing described. They were out over the water at night. Pilots did the maneuvering, then put the plane in a gentle dive toward the water.

Passenger though the lights on a boat the pilot was aiming at were stars in the sky. The passenger, were he flying, would've have driven that plane right in the drink.

Finding a place to land from there? Might've been possible, had the Pilot not squawked 1200 on the transponder. See above.

We're not sure he actually said any of that, since the only support for it is Randy Shilt's book. The story has been mostly debunked anyway, since AIDS had been in the US since at least the 1950s. Dugas came along decades too late to be "patient zero".

I missed many chances to see him and regret it. Always different personas but always seemed to connect with his audience in a genuine way. It's totally not the type of music that would usually turn me on but 'Heroes' live has always been a favorite. Maybe it's the subject (Berlin wall), maybe it's just his simple delivery of a love song. Not sure. He's the rock star I'd invite to Thanksgiving dinner to hang with the family.

731 Difference between a sailboat and a helicopter is a sailboat is two-dimensional and a helicopter is threethree-dimensional in operation.

It's really different to the pilot.

Difference is dealing with topography at about 8 times the top speed of a sailboat with the added little irritant of constantly changing air currents. Been sailing on multiple sail ships several times. Flown on a helicopter 3 times fighting forrest fires. Never got off the sailboat wondering about the "captain's" sanity. Can't say the same about helicopters.

It's not "lawerly" at all, Blonde M. It's McCarthy once again showing his (surprisingly poor) limitations. He's almost half-right, in a way. He's wrong that the alleged Bolton claim, if true, changes anything - not only does it not change anything legally, but it looks ridiculous against the established factual record (by the HPSCI, oops) that none of the line officials involved had his understanding of Trump's desires.

741 I can tell you of one Huey experience.

Jungle Penetrator.

Tx Air National Guard crewman, sent down to rescue me from rescuing a local firefighter, trapped in a raging flood.

Went out in my boat, boat got swamped, we're all up various trees in the flood.

From a tall Live Oak, down came the Penetrator and the ANG trooper.

I had to calm HIM down to effect the evolution.

At that time, I had been rappelling down tall buildings for a living.

And he had "drilled" once a month for minor things, and once a year for the heavy stuff.

When I was "aerial", every freakin' day of the week.

He was just a bit confused as to why I was calm and un panicked in the progression, that morning.

I got a major cudo from Bexar County, TX for that one.

748 Trump appointments to the court are having an impact. Supreme Court allows Trump administration to enforce 'public charge' immigration restriction. This should not ever have been an issue because immigration law forbids immigrants, and especially illegals, from getting federal welfare benefits for at least 5 years after entering the country. But a lot of the Democrat run States were ignoring that law. And it should be noted that the 4 commie judges wanted to allow this flaunting of the law. 4 years ago this would have been a 5-4 decision in the other direction.

As I got closer to home (about a 2 hour trip) I noticed the time was still pretty high. I proceeded against the suggestion of the gps on my normal route and wanted to see if it would recalculate. It kept telling me to turn around.

The car was using maps from before they finished the Ohio river bridges. I watched on the map as I went 'off road' and apparently sailed through the sky over the Ohio river. I like maps, but that kind of gives one pause about always trusting them.

John Bolton's Close Ally Fred Fleitz Turns Against Him, Charging That His Book Is Unethical

Before getting to that, let's take a look at the observation that several people have made, that the Democrats are enacting the Kavanaugh Strategy again during this fake impeachment, attempting to drag out the proceedings for maximum political benefit with a timed "bombshell" every four days to keep the circus going:

Then came the accusations by fabulist Christine Blasey Ford about an incident that took place in high school (she couldnít provide an exact time or location) when she was sexually assaulted by a young Kavanaugh. Close on the heels of that allegation, a woman named Deborah Ramirez claimed Kavanaugh, while a college student, had waggled his penis in her face. Then we were treated to a soon-to-be convicted felon named Michael Avenatti producing a woman named Julie Swetnick who claimed that Kavanaugh ran a gang rape ring. A woman later identified as Judy Munro-Leighton claimed Kavanaugh raped her in a car.

All of these allegations were false. They were all easily batted down. But they served a common purpose. What should have been a pro-forma hearing of two or three days, followed by a confirmation vote turned into a month-long ordeal that involved a "supplemental" FBI investigation. And the volume of similarly themed allegations left some people wondering if there was a pony underneath that pile of horse dung, was Brett Kavanaugh a serial sexual predator in the Bill Clinton mode?

If one looks at the Trump impeachment trial, one sees the outlines of a similar pattern....

As the House 'impeachment managers' were making their closing case, tape surfaced of Donald Trump stating that he wanted then-ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch 'taken out.' There were some who claimed that President Trump ordered a hit on her.

Yeah, AllahPundit, the noted former preening scold of conspiracy theorists, farted that conspiracy bubble up out of the bath.

That was ridiculous but only little moreso than claiming, against all law and precedent, that the President cannot fire an ambassador whom he no longer trusts. Those tapes, by the way, were delivered to the House Intelligence Committee before it voted on impeachment and there was nothing in them that merited inclusion in the Houseís impeachment evidence.

A totally bullsh** allegation of the Julie Swetnick kind, but a drip. A small point of doubt designed to get the Senate to ask for more information.

And now...

boltonford

Fred Fleitz -- who has been called "John Bolton's own John Bolton" --is calling for Bolton to withdraw his Retirement Fund venture disguised as a book.

It was crushing to read weekend press reports that my friend and former boss John Bolton plans to publish a tell-all book on his time as President Trumpís National Security Adviser. The book reportedly will be published in March 2020. Given the importance of protecting a presidentís confidential discussions with his senior advisers, I strongly disagree with Boltonís decision to release the book before the November presidential election and call on him to withdraw it from the publisher immediately.

After noting that executive privilege exists so that presidents can speak candidly with advisers without having to be guarded about every statement and question -- something that Bolton is undermining for his own personal benefit -- Fleitz notes that Robert Gates avoided doing this before Obama's 2012 election.

I havenít seen Boltonís book manuscript and I donít know whatís in it. I take Bolton and his staff at their word that they did not leak the manuscript to the New York Times. But I believe they are still responsible for this leak since Boltonís explosive book was sent to the leak-prone National Security Council for a security review in December 2019 so the book could be published in the spring of 2020. It also is inexplicable how such a sensitive manuscript could be sent to the NSC in the middle of the impeachment process. Under such circumstances, a leak of the manuscript was all but certain.

If a manuscript of this sensitivity was to be published at all, this should happen after the election, not in the spring of 2020. I donít understand the need for a former National Security Adviser to publish a tell-all book critical of a president he served, especially during a presidential reelection campaign that will determine the fate of the country. There will be a time for Bolton to speak out without appearing to try to tip a presidential election.

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP

Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, who stepped down in June 2011, published a devastating book titled ďDuty: Memoirs of a Secretary at WarĒ that detailed the incompetence of Vice President Joe Biden and the Obama National Security Council staff. But because he did not want his internal knowledge of the workings of the Obama administration and his interactions with President Obama to affect the outcome of the 2012 presidential election, Gates did not publish his book until January 2014.

Gates established a principled precedent on how senior advisers to presidents should write about their experiences. Given Ambassador Boltonís long and distinguished record of government service, I believe it is vital that he follow this precedent.




In case you missed it: LIEUTENANT COLONEL Vindman's identical twin brother might have been the one at the Deep State NSC assigned to "review" Bolton's book for classification issues.

And then it gets leaked.

But maybe it's simpler than that -- Bolton's PR people do not seem to deny that they leaked the story. They only deny that they "coordinated" with the media as regards timing of release:




Well, if this book doesn't work out for the Super Patriot Bolton, I hear Qatar is hiring.

There's got to be a cute name for this type of plot development in a story. Whatever it is, it's as utterly tiresome as it is utterly predictable. In fact, this entire impeachment charade was itself such an 11th hour plot thickener, with timing keyed to the Horowitz report.

Nomination of Trump as GOP Presidential Nominee? Incoming Durham investigation results? Michael Flynn Developments on Withdrawal of Guity Plea? 2020 Election itself?

"DERSHOWITZ DEFENSE OF IMPEACHED PRESIDENT WEAK AND UNCONVINCING"

Posted by: runner at January 27, 2020 08:41 PM (zr5Kq)

118 Bolton: (a) Retirement Fund, (b) Getting even with Trump, over whatever blowout they had.

We know (a), because Bolton is smart enough to know that politically, publicly pushing to jump into the ring to hurt the sitting President, his former boss, in this impeachment effort, whether Bolton has good evidence or just his word, is going to make him radioactive for any future political appointments or positions.

He also must know that he hurts his follow-on money train for talks and speeches, sacrificing it for today's proceeds in book sales. Hard to think that even with this material purportedly being in the book, sales are unlikely to go gangbusters. One reporter needs to quote actual text of book on relevant subject matter, and no one else has to buy the book. And, let's be honest, the audience here is either (a) Dems looking for moment-of-time advantage in this impeachment exercise + as cudgel for 2020 election, and (b) Bolton followers and admirers. Group (a) doesn't need to buy the book, because all they need is a reporter to report on it, and Group (b) won't buy the book, because Bolton will be thought of as violating the trust with his former boss.

So.... How does this benefit Bolton, really? If he causes all of this drama, and then comes in and dramatically supports Trump, THAT would likely get him a sales bump on the other hand.... But given blowout with Trump, this latter scenario unlikely.

Today's defense pitch is arguing that the Senate should not simply acquit, but acquit in a manner that tells the House to not go down a purely political impeachment road again, and to never again attempt to use the Senate as a mere tool of the House in impeachments.

Good objective. Low probability of succeeding nowadays, and especially in the Era of OrangeManBad.

No, we're not screwed. If the squishy GOP Senators side with the Dems, it only means that we have weeks and months more of this crap to waste everyone's time on, but the outcome is still the same.

It would be an incredibly selfish for Romney, Murkowski and Collins to do it. It would allow these three to "vote their conscience" (and help Murkowski and Collins to win re-election... Romney???) But hard to see GOP removing Trump from office, even if Bolton has him on tape.

Utter crap. There were two reasons--before the transcript release, they really talked themselves into a coup.

AFTER the transcript release, it's about giving whatever lunatic they nominate a chance--the ONLY chance to beat Trump. I think it's dawning on them what they've done. If Bernie gets the nomination, Trump is going to coast to a win and the Republicans get the House back. And then it's the last 15 minutes of every Godfather movie.

He gets no rebuttal on the floor of the Senate - but it should never have gotten to the point where Alan Dershowitz had to save anyones bacon - this should have bee dismissed on day one without anyone given any speeches - McConnell could have spared the country what is about to come - a very tight and probably affirmative vote to have limited witnesses on the Dem side mostly with Murky Murk, Pierre Imbecilio and Corpse Collins providing the votes to this buffoonery.

So why, exactly, is the NSC "leak-prone" still? I'm not kidding when I say these leakers and institutions need more than a decimation in the ranks. Decimation would be regarded only as a punishment for poor performance. That's not what we have here. Theirs is treasonous considering its mission. Decimation Plus is necessary to correct not poor performance but criminal (and anti-American) behavior.

353 "Even if a president -any president - were to demand a quid pro quo as a condition to sending aid to a foreign country ... that would not by itself constitute an abuse of power."

Also not an abuse of power: A president smoking out actual, provable corruption ESPECIALLY if it's coming from someone whose position would affect American governance and law.

That Biden is tied up into a corrupt process but cannot be investigated (even though he blatantly bragged about it for the world to see) is absurd. I'd be upset if Trump didn't go after the Bidens. AND I think he should still go after Clinton/Obama for the political coup they orchestrated.

Just because you ran for high office and continue to do so does not inoculate you from legitimate investigation. You don't get to walk the circuit with a Get Outta Jail Free card.

The Trademark holder alerts Etsy of the infringement, Etsy will remove the offending item, at any time Etsy can close a shop, first, second, etc offense. The seller can be banned from ever opening another Etsy shop.
Charms, etc are sold for the creation of fan art, but, fan art can not be sold, it is for personal use, much as printed fabric is.
To sell a trademarked item you need to purchase a license from the holder.
Etsy has millions of intellectual property infringement on it's site and removes them as reported by the holder, but, that said, it is not a defense that will alleviate responsibility.

477 431 Okay experts. I went thru this 3 years ago when I opened my Etsy shop. I had a cute little Disney charm bracelet. Another Etsy shop owner messaged me and told me I need to take it down because copyright infringement. I did a little research and what I found was yeah.. I could be sued. So I took it down. Then I put some Chiefs stuff up about a year later. More messaging.. I need to take it down. What I read and I may be wrong, is.. first they (I assume the NFL) has to issue a cease and desist.. they can't just sue you for say.. a million dollars. Second.. what about the millions of craft vendors that sell this stuff nationwide?
Posted by: Jewells45 at January 27, 2020 09:34 PM (dUJdY)

I'm not aware of any requirement to issue a cease and desist letter before a copyright owner can sue someone for infringement under Title 17 of the United States Code, which governs federal copyright laws. A copyright owner can sue for damages, seek an injunction, and pursue other forms of relief. As a general matter, "but everyone else is doing it" is probably not going to help much.

Think about it: The call between Trump and Ukraine, immediately moved to secured server, leak about a perfectly good phone call from the NSC, leaks to Schiff, comes out in the media, calls for investigations, accusations, conversation released, leakers self identify. Now just think of the Bolton book in the same light: How did it get leaked? NSC, one man immediately walked off the grounds (the new leaker). . . It is following the same script, another leaker found, media goes nuts and how embarrassing will it be when Bolton testifies? Bolton was the National Security Advisor for Go'd sake! He'd be dead if he really leaked the book. His career would be forever over. He is not beyond helping to clean out the rats nest at NSC and embarrassing the dems and media. . . Set Up. . . again.

NY Post Confirms That FBI Is "Reviewing" Charges That Ilhan "Omar" Nur Married Her Brother, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, to Defraud INS

Don't get too excited -- this looks like another FBI cover-up.

They've accepted the information, because there is a lot of evidence of this crime, and they have to at least be seen as open to investigating, but in fact, they're not.

They will bury this.


The Federal Bureau of Investigation is reviewing claims Rep. Ilhan Omar married her brother, The Post has learned.

Two FBI agents held an hours-long meeting in Minnesota in mid-October with a concerned party who handed over a trove of documents regarding Omarís 2009 marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, a source with knowledge of the event said.

At the meeting, first reported by website The Blaze, the agents discussed concerns the Somali-born Democrat married Elmi, a British citizen rumored to be her brother, so he could obtain a green card and study in America, the source said.

The two agents said they would share the information with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the US Department of Education, but did not commit to opening an investigation into the firebrand lawmaker, the source said.

Nah, FBI investigations are for important, well-evidenced stuff, like Carter Page being a RUSSIAN operative.

34 Because I'm the optimist around here, I will note that one reassuring thing has come out of all the revelations about the FBI:

It really was a pretty small group.

The same people pop up again and again. The whole op against Trump was run out of the front office and when Weiner's laptop became a thing, they moved to lock that into DC's orbit as well.

Thus there is hope that there might be actual agents who want to investigate stuff.

If the whole agency were crooked, they wouldn't have had Strzok be assigned to every single investigation.

So there's that.

Federal Statute of Limitations has passed, so they really can't get her for breaking Federal law, but,

If they find other fraud used to get her green card, and for citizenship (like identity theft or fraud), there is precedent to strip her of her citizenship.

which means, can't be in Congress.

Posted by: Don Q at January 27, 2020 07:36 PM (NgKpN)

44 But I was struck by this in the poll thread downsite: On impeachment: Don't convict 49%, convict 47%.

To me this means that people are not viewing this as a law case, but rather just politically. A do-over of an election, in other words.

Even though I hated Barry, I would not have supported trumped up impeachment to remove him. Apparently that is not the case with the American voters anymore.

But I was struck by this in the poll thread downsite: On impeachment: Don't convict 49%, convict 47%.



To me this means that people are not viewing this as a law case, but
rather just politically. A do-over of an election, in other words.



Even though I hated Barry, I would not have supported trumped up
impeachment to remove him. Apparently that is not the case with the
American voters anymore.

The question is being asked if they support him being removed from office.

If you don't like him, sure, yeah, go ahead.

With Clinton they did this whole thing about overturning an election, etc.

But now, it's just a thing you can do.

And even with 24/7 lies, they still can't massage a poll sample to get a clear majority.

If a loan is still active, like a student loan. Then fraud on said loan is an active crime, even if you got the loan more than the 5 year ago.

Thus, if a student loan is not paid off? They could still do a fraud investigation based on that active loan.

Because I'm the optimist around here, I will note that one reassuring thing has come out of all the revelations about the FBI:

It really was a pretty small group.

The same people pop up again and again. The whole op against Trump was run out of the front office and when Weiner's laptop became a thing, they moved to lock that into DC's orbit as well.

Thus there is hope that there might be actual agents who want to investigate stuff.

If the whole agency were crooked, they wouldn't have had Strzok be assigned to every single investigation.

So there's that.

Used to be, but now Maynard claims to have vertigo and does the show off-stage. When I saw them about 18 months ago he never got on stage, he did the singing from backstage. Never saw him once, just the guitarist, bassist and drummer on stage. Would've been nice for a heads-up before spending $300 on tickets.
I've seen Youtube videos of a few of their shows since and he stands still behind the drummer, but at least he's still on stage.
In 1993 I saw them open for Korn and it's one of the top 3 shows I've ever seen.

240 She didn't know that assuming a false identity in order to enter the us as a refugee, then marry her brother in order to provide fals cover for his entrance to the us and to secure education funding was wrong. She didn't act with intent. Therefore she is a hero and is allowed to remain in congress and hold security clearance.

Oddly, some people really really believe that putting in the 'correct' answer is not the same as lying. Like doing a rout memorization test in school - do you know if it is true or the believe it? Irrelevent if it is the correct answer.

Now the SOL on immigration fraud. I think that is forever. Either explicitly or by virtue of the fact that you are still pretending to have a legit green card or naturalization base upon false info. If caught in an honest error I think they would correct the paperwork and reset the clock for wait periods.

Lying about your name and engaging in bigamy with your bro is not an honest mistake.

No, he used to be extremely physical. One time he tackled a guy that junped on stage, put him in a judo mount and performed the rest of the 15 minute song on top of the guy. Find that on youtube. He used to be full energy. I was pissed when he didn't even bother going up on the stage. It was about a year later I learned it was because their light/laser show started giving him seizures or whatever. I thought at the time it was some performance art "it's not about the singer" bullshit. Do check Youtube videos of the current tour tho, they don't copyright strike them so there's tons up there. Maybe he's found a better way to cope.

You can't go out and say exactly what you mean. You have to be vague, non-committal, and highly aloof, or the public figures out that you are fringe ideologues.

AOC, Omar etc...are actually getting the rug pulled out from under them by their own party.

Also, take a look at the Powerline boys. Omar has an enforcer that will light a fire under the FBI. Threats have been levied to the wrong party.

Omar is toast. AOC is toast, and there are about 3 or 4 others in that group that will be shown the door by their own party eventually.

314 So, Collins, Murkowski and Romney vote with Dems, on (a) having witnesses at all, and (b) possibly also only voting to bring in Dem's preferred witnesses, here, only John Bolton.

That would leave the Senate split 50/50, with Pence casting the deciding vote, in Trump's favor.

What are odds of this outcome? Give Dems a great talking point going into 2020? Check. Allows Romney, Murkowski and Collins to vote "Yes" on removal from office, while leaving their colleagues the honor of officially shooting it down to end the charade? Check. Allows all Trump-haters to add to their hate of both Trump and, as a valuable bonus, Pence? Check. Another chink in the demoralization of GOP voters coming into 2020 Election? Check.

331 314 So, Collins, Murkowski and Romney vote with Dems, on (a) having witnesses at all, and (b) possibly also only voting to bring in Dem's preferred witnesses, here, only John Bolton.

That would leave the Senate split 50/50, with Pence casting the deciding vote, in Trump's favor.

What are odds of this outcome

What about Manchin and Doug Jones? Aren't they on the hot seat, too?

Just one of them turning would blow this whole thing up, and Snow blower, Tom Collins, and the Democrat from Utah votes are moot.

335 Yale can't have a Western Civ class at Yale for the same reason that every PBS announcer has to try to announce foreign names and capitals in a foreign accent. We used to be able to talk about "Peking" and "Kiev" in a normal, standardized way, until the Lords of Multiculturalism deemed it required to ape foreign pronunciations in order not to be "chauvanistic" and "colonialist." But now its all "Baaayzzzhing" and "Keeeev" and "Eeeeran" and "Pockeeestahn" to the educated fools.

And yet, when residents of Baaayhhjjjzinggg are given the news about New York or London, I doubt their announcers take pains to imitate an "American accent" --but simply assign words and names to places outside of China IN THEIR OWN FUCKING LANGUAGE which is a basic function of languages since time immemorial, except of course for about the last 15 years in the "privileged" West.

In other words, every culture is allowed to have a culture, except ours.

The dark twist is that his own ship puts a torpedo in the U-69 and though it manages to surface in time for him to avoid a watery grave, he's already dead of sexual exhaustion.

A common theme was giving people exactly what they wanted - until they begged for no more of it. Honestly - a pretty good take on things if you ask me.

Don't plan on watching this new one. And not because of the black chic - just because I'm not gonna' sit there and watch them ruin another old piece of nostalgia for me.

Although the big music in that movie is "Relax", which put it into popular consciousness - perfect use of it in a pron scene.
I agree with earlier comments that the original Fantasy Island had a dark element. I even remember one episode implying one of Roark's enemies is a devil (the actor's eyes became red as he warned Roark, etc.), implying Roark was an angel providing warnings to mortals.

192 146 No interest in this, but Body Double...I re-watched it recently and was pleasantly surprised how well it stood up. It is still really entertaining, even if nekkid young Melanie Griffith does nothing for me. And yes I recognize the music.

Although the big music in that movie is "Relax", which put it into popular consciousness - perfect use of it in a pron scene.

I agree with earlier comments that the original Fantasy Island had a dark element. I even remember one episode implying one of Roark's enemies is a devil (the actor's eyes became red as he warned Roark, etc.), implying Roark was an angel providing warnings to mortals.

Pino Donaggio is a really great composer who isn't as well known as he should be. He worked with DePalma on most of his early classic stuff and did some really memorable scores for some horror movies. Tourist Trap is a super creepy little flick that's surprisingly scary for a PG rated flick and his score elevates it a lot. Also it's got busty Tanya Roberts.

I see the Angela Bassett mention earlier - but I don't know. She seems to be all in on the Uncompromising Bitch You Love to Hate roles. She's pretty good at 'em, too. But I don't see that for Ms. Roarke. However - I see the logic of the selection.


I can tell you who would have been fucking perfect - fifteen years ago. Whoopi Goldberg, channeling her Guinan performance off Star Trek. But she's far too committed to the cause to put in a performance like that now.

She's not black - but the older Indian chic off The Expanse could have pulled it off.

"Despite Americans' concerns that the economic system favors the wealthy, the latest Post-ABC poll finds that"

-------

Uh-huh.

Doesn't matter what system you're in - the wealthyhave been, by definition, favored by it. Whether the system rewards hard work and ingenuity or Party membership, it favors the wealthy by giving them wealth.

But I do get the sentiment, though in a far different way than the ABC asspounding butt-pirate pollster would like.

I think the American political system so strongly favors the incumbent crony capitalist, Statist lapdog that the economic system has come to resemble the latter more than the former.

And I'm not the only one.

And that sort of thing is what leads to the rare circumstance of bourgeois revolution.

SyFy's editing is laughable.

It amazes me what they decide to bleep out or omit from movie dialogue, and what they leave in. And in the TV shows that they make, there is awkward profanity inserted, I trust, to show they are EDGY. Never mind there has been nothing edgy about profanity in movies or TV since about 1970...

257 If you guys haven't gotten "Shudder" yet, they have "Tourist Trap" on it.

1. The prints Shudder gets are amazing. If you saw your '70s and '80s horror on grainy VHS (or Beta!) playing on a 19" screen, you won't believe the stuff you couldn't make out back then that now works. (TCSM, for example, was just blurry blobs in the dark.)

2. Joe Bob Briggs hosts "Tourist Trap", so you can watch his commentary (optional) and he is a huge Chuck Connors fan, and a fan of the movie. All kinds of interesting tidbits.

(There's also a Rifftrax of "Tourist Trap" which has some funny moments.)

Movies - no problem, anything goes. TV was practically a complete embargo. Not for "values" reasons but because it turns a child's brain into a bucket of cherry cobbler. Mixed with feces and Chinese bat-meat.

YouTube seems like an even worse degenerative influence. Yay. We keep sliding faster and faster into idiocy.

SyFy's editing is laughable.

It amazes me what they decide to bleep out or omit from movie dialogue, and what they leave in. And in the TV shows that they make, there is awkward profanity inserted, I trust, to show they are EDGY. Never mind there has been nothing edgy about profanity in movies or TV since about 1970...

Here. They haven't travelled. Died 5 days ago. One 10 day hospital stay died of brain hemorrhage. The other just went to the doctor and family thought she was getting better, and died in their sleep. Parents are trying to figure out if autopsies are being performed or if they have been buried. Both familes said the doctors have never seen anything like it before. I guess it depends on how serious the CDC is taking things, and the fact the Hong Kong data release during press conference is being ignored and flights are still allowed out of China into the country, I'd say we aren't taking it serious like the Hong Kong Scientists said we should locally and globally.

367 100 O a serious note, my parents just told me on the phone that 2 people in their early 40's died of the flu in the last 5 days. One was hospitalized for 10 days and died of a brain hemorrhage, and the other they thought was getting better at home and died in their sleep. Doctors have zero clue what it was. Parents are trying to see if autopsies are being performed or not.

Friends of parents kids in their early 40's and healthy. Crazy.

373 OT, but I want to comment on the last post.

First of all, ABC/WaPo has always been a heavy skew Dem poll. They had some polls with Hillary winning by double digits. If Trump is statistically tied, then that is very bad news for the Dems.

Second, the entire "Trump is tied/Trump is in trouble" narrative just doesn't pass the smell test. Compare, in 2016 the Dems were running their best candidate. While her problems were many, she was the best they could field because she did bring in key Dem constituencies like feminists. Trump was an unknown and many suspected a potential RINO.

Fast forward to now. Trump is a known quantity, the country is better off than 4 years ago by every measure, the voters are giving Trump the credit for it, and not a single Dem candidate is better than the one that lost to Trump previously.

Yet they want us to believe that voters are going to vote against Trump this time because he tweets, and might have wanted Biden's corruption investigated?

It defies logic.

Brain hemorrhage person was in a very good hospital for 10 days before dying and doctors called it the strangest flu they have ever seen. The other person just went to doctor, was getting better, and died in their sleep. I'm guessing all kinds of tests were run on the former, the latter is a mystery.

WaPo/ABC Poll: Trump Statistically Tied With All Democrats
Gallup: Public Satisfaction Up Bigly Over Last Year of Obama/Biden Administration

Link.

President Trump begins his reelection year in a more competitive position than he was last fall against potential Democratic challengers, aided by rising approval for his handling of the economy, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll.

...

Despite Americans' concerns that the economic system favors the wealthy, the latest Post-ABC poll finds that fewer than half are worried about maintaining their own standard of living, a shift from 2016, when most expressed concern about losing their financial footing.

With just over nine months until Election Day, Americans see Trump as a slight favorite for reelection, with 49 percent expecting him to win and 43 percent predicting that his Democratic challenger will prevail.

...

The national Post-ABC poll tested Trump in six potential general election matchups and finds that registered voters nationwide are roughly split between supporting the president and backing the Democratic candidates. Neither Trump nor Democrats hold a statistically significant advantage in any matchup.

Former vice president Joe Biden is currently favored by 50 percent of registered voters while 46 percent support Trump. Former New York mayor Mike Bloomberg has 49 percent support to Trumpís 46 percent, also virtually even given the pollís four-point margin of sampling error among registered voters.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) receives 49 percent to Trumpís 47 percent, while Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) stands at 48 percent to Trumpís 47 percent. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is tied with Trump at 48 percent. Former South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg is at 45 percent to Trumpís 48 percent.

...

The close matchups between Trump and Democrats among registered voters represent a contrast with an October Post-ABC poll in which Biden, Sanders, Warren and Buttigieg all held double-digit advantages over the incumbent.

On impeachment: Don't convict 49%, convict 47%.

Meanwhile, on a range of issues, Americans are much more satisfied with the current state of the country than they were in Obama's last year of 2016, and in many key areas -- from satisfaction with the economy to satisfaction with the level of crime to satisfaction with the readiness of the military -- they are greatly more satisfied.

Or, as Gallup calls it-- the country has "mixed" feelings.

Americans' average satisfaction rating for the 27 issues Gallup has tracked consistently since 2001 is now 47%. This is up three points from a year ago and is the highest since the January 2005 poll.

Today's average satisfaction is roughly on par with the level of the early 2000s. Only in 2002 was the average for this metric substantially higher than it is today. The average 53% recorded that year reflected heightened satisfaction as Americans were in full "rally around the flag" mode shortly after the 9/11 attacks.


@AndrewHClark

NEW POLL: On virtually every big indicator Americans say things are better today than they were at the end of the Obama-Biden presidency.

Economy is better (+22 points), country is more secure (+18 points), the military is stronger (+15 points), streets are safer (+9 points)...

Note that the level of satisfaction rose to 44% just before the 2012 reelections, and Obama won. It had been at a low of about 40% a year before, but rose in that last year before the election.

Now it's at 47%.

80 Willowed: Junkie Hunter settled with his baby-mama stripper in Arkansas (it may
already have been noted). Speculatively, if he pays her $10K per month, retroactive to
November 2018 (he agreed to pay retroactive), that's $140,000. Plus both her and
his legal costs, figure $50 K each, and now we are up to $240,000. Plus,
I'm sure Joe's advisors told him to pay child support through the rest
of the year so no "Dead-beat Dad" stories emerge before the election, so
that's another $110,000 and boom!


Hunter probably wrote checks totaling
over $350,000 dollars in real American money today.
On top
of this Junkie Hunter is still liable for penalties the Judge may assess in his upcoming contempt hearing and he still has to prove to her that his
private settlement is appropriate given his income, and she expressly
noted in giving her OK to the provisional settlement that it could yet
be raised. The enduring lesson here is, Do Not Piss Off The Judge.

Speaking of Rush, is anyone else not annoyed by
his testimonial ads? I've been listening since 92, and eventually that
led me here, but I just spent 30 min the car where he came out of bottom
of the hour break and talked about Hillsdale for 5min. Eventually he
did 9 min with a caller, than another break, followed by him talking
about Lifelock for three minutes, then another obscene profit timeout,
then him back for 30 sec to tell us the the Trump's lawyers had just
taken a recess. So, 20 min of ads for 10 min of Rush content. What
kind of marketing strategy is that?!?



Rant over. Sorry.

257 If a pollster called me, I would politely decline.

Remember, when a "pollster" "randomly" calls you, they already have your name, address, approximate income, and much else, if they choose to have that information.

You'd have to be nuts to give them honest responses.

I heard some positive remarks out of a well-heeled, high-powered admitted socialist about McConnell and Rand Paul re: weed legalization.

The ripping on Trump has diminished as well. Don has done a good job at so much, it's hard to disagree.
