The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“We have been consistently concerned about the impacts of technology and automation on the livelihoods of working people, especially when they have no voice in how technology is used in their workplaces, Graham Trainor, president of the Oregon AFL-CIO


Quote II

"Increasing housing and ensuring equity across our City is my top priority, which is why I am so proud to open San Francisco’s first Trans Home on Washington Street. This new program will provide trans people with the safety and support they as they find a permanent home in San Francisco," Mayor London Breed


Quote III

“I’ve been in a lot of dangerous situations, both in and out of the Marines and I’m confident in my ability to handle them. But it doesn’t mean I wasn’t afraid of her.”Ben Feibleman, Former Marine and Columbia University student


Quote IV

"All states have their own protections for waters within their borders, and many regulate more broadly than the federal government," "Our new rule recognizes this relationship and strikes the proper balance between Washington, D.C., and the states." Environmental Protection Agency chief Andy Wheeler


Quote V

“I don’t suffer fools gladly. I’m honest and I’m truthful and I told him straight away he couldn’t be a freeloader. Iris Jones, a British pensioner aged 80


Quote VI

“But to me, when I see the president do this, you know, as someone who’s been around awhile, I saw Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan didn’t do this. George W. Bush, his dad [George H.W. Bush], none of them did it. Why does Donald Trump think that this is good? It divides the country.” Juan Williams


I got booted off of Twitter for asking him if he was retarded. I should have told him to pull his head out of his ass at the same time.

Divisive?

“Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.” The life and times of H.L. Mencken.

In this age of dim digitized media in which E.J. Dionne and David Brooks are honored as distinguished columnists, the byline Henry Louis Mencken is virtually forgotten. Mencken, who died in his sleep 64 years ago this week after listening to Die Meistersinger on the Saturday afternoon broadcast from the Metropolitan Opera, is unlikely to be remembered by the mediacrats who abhor everything the man stood for.

Yet Mencken in the 1920s was one of the most celebrated figures in America, and even the western world. The erstwhile bad boy of Baltimore has been alternatively described as a ‘Jeremiah come to pass judgment’ on a decadent and mentally paralyzed America, the ‘American Nietzsche’, the heir to Voltaire and Swift, the greatest journalist of his time, a Communist agitator and the secular Antichrist.

Don't let Florida Man paint your house. And so you have been warned.


Someone turned a $500,000 home in Florida into a multicolored mess, and now the community is taking legal action.

Saturday, January 25, 2020 1:35PM
NAPLES, Fla. -- Talk about extreme makeover, home edition!

Someone turned a $500,000 home in Florida into a multicolored mess, and now the community is taking legal action.

With paint splattered and sprayed in multiple bright colors all over the house, trees, lawn and mailbox, the home in the small community of Il Regalo Circle in Naples looks like something out of a cartoon.

The man who owns the house is 40-year-old Jeffrey Leibman, according to the Collier County Property Appraiser.

Neighbor Alan Klawans told WBBH-TV this unique paint job happened over the course of a week.

"I can't tell you," he said. "Obviously has a drug issue or something going on because I have just never seen anything like this in my life."

The "artist" even spray-painted "Who is Omar?" on the side of a van parked out front.

As we fight the global war on terror. I'm relieved that our enemy is also fighting the global war of climate change.

Terrorist group al Shabaab has banned single-use plastic bags.

The Somali militant Islamist group, which has links to al Qaeda, has long had an interest in environmental issues.

It made the official announcement on Radio Andalus, which is operated by al Shabaab.

When the government gets into the business of business, the government loses.

Looks like another federally backed solar energy plant has gone bust. Bloomberg News reports, “A $1 Billion Solar Plant Was Obsolete Before It Ever Went Online.”

In 2011 the $1 billion [Crescent Dunes] project was to be the biggest solar plant of its kind, and it looked like the future of renewable power. Citigroup Inc. and other financiers invested $140 million with its developer, SolarReserve Inc. Steven Chu, the U.S. Department of Energy secretary at the time, offered the company [$737 million in] government loan guarantees, and Harry Reid, then the Senate majority leader and senior senator from Nevada, cleared the way for the company to build on public land.

Life carries risk. We take risks every day. I don't need Andrew Cuomo or any other Nanny to tell me how to live.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been campaigning recently to promote new legislation that would set forth a legal framework for riders of e-scooters and e-bikes within the Empire State. In short, Cuomo looks to pass regulations that would provide clear rules for those that choose more sustainable methods of transportation than heavily polluting cars. Among these regulations is one that clearly states these riders must wear helmets when mobile, a solution that Cuomo alluded to helping everyone who frequents New York's crowded roadways. But when Streetsblog NYC asked if Cuomo might consider a seemingly outlandish safety measure—helmets for motorists and their passengers—the governor didn't shrug off the suggestion; instead, he called for data to support the claim.

Cuomo called the current state of these transportation methods a "legal vacuum" and addressed the need to officially mandate safety measures. This would ensure that casual riders and delivery drivers alike are protected from "arbitrary enforcement" as they navigate the busy streets of the five boroughs.

"We need an alternative to automobiles driving in New York City," said Cuomo

Aging has-been actors don't grow old gracefully. Star Trek Actor George Takei Thinks He’s Entitled to Royalties for the Space Force Logo

George Takei has been suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome for a long time and has probably spent more time in the past few years criticizing Trump than breathing. Nothing is too petty for Takei to gripe about when it comes to Trump. When Trump announced the new logo for the U.S. Space Force, it was inevitable that the has-been actor, mostly known for his portrayal of Lieutenant Sulu on Star Trek: The Original Series, would have an opinion.

New Zealand's attempt to be a super power has failed.

The Defence Force is battling to find a buyer for 30 unwanted armoured vehicles which cost about $186 million.

It is another chapter in the long running saga of one of the army's most expensive, and most controversial, purchases.

The Army quietly increased the number of NZ Light Armoured Vehicles (NZLAVs) for sale from 20 to 30 early in 2019.

Only a government employee could come out of the Epstein death incident smelling like a rose. Warden moving onto green pastures.

The warden in charge when Jeffrey Epstein ended his life in his jail cell is being moved to a leadership position at another federal correctional facility, putting him back in the field with inmates despite an ongoing investigation into the financier's death, two people familiar with the matter told The Associated Press.

The federal Bureau of Prisons is planning to move Lamine N'Diaye to the role at FCI Fort Dix, a low-security prison in Burlington County, New Jersey, the people said. The move comes months after Attorney General William Barr ordered N'Diaye be reassigned to a desk post at the Bureau of Prisons' regional office in Pennsylvania after Epstein's death as the FBI and the Justice Department's inspector general investigated.

Bailiff whack their pee-pee. The University of Conneticut has a federal judge pissed at them.

When a judge tells you twice in one week that you are violating students’ constitutional rights, it may be time to listen.

A federal court in Connecticut handed the University of Connecticut a stinging rebuke yesterday, holding that the university likely violated an accused student’s due process rights when it ignored exculpatory evidence and prevented him from questioning witnesses in his sexual misconduct case. This is the second time in a week that U.S. District Judge Michael Shea has issued a temporary restraining order against UConn in a case involving students’ constitutional rights: Last week, Judge Shea barred UConn from proceeding with a disciplinary hearing against two students impermissibly being disciplined for their constitutionally protected speech.

The French are not known for their fighting prowess. Even President Trump is "skeptical" of their forces.

According to a new report from NBC, France is pleading with President Trump to not cut off U.S. military support to French forces fighting Islamist militants in Africa.

Trump administration officials have expressed skepticism on the effectiveness of French counterterrorism efforts.

French President Macron has repeatedly clashed with President Trump on topics including NATO spending and the U.S. decision to leave the Paris Climate Accord.

Macron has also been plagued with low favorability ratings in his country and mass protests.

Oh woe is us. We couldn't do anything. Funny how Cindy McCain can rationalize away knowledge of Jeffrey Epstein's behavior.

Cindy McCain, the widow of late Sen. John McCain, blasted authorities who were "afraid" to arrest convicted sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein even though everyone "knew" what he was doing.

"Epstein was hiding in plain sight," said Cindy McCain. "We all knew about him. We all knew what he was doing, but we had no one that was — no legal aspect that would go after him. They were afraid of him. For whatever reason, they were afraid of him."

McCain's comments came after she was questioned by an attendee during her appearance at the State of the World 2020 conference in Florida.

I'm sure her late husband and his staff could have done more. They sure knew how to get a Bull Shit dossier to Buzz Feed.

If you are going to violate the rules of the road, better planning is needed. Just ask our Genius Award Winner.

PHOENIX (AP) — A 62-year-old man was cited in Arizona this week after trying to disguise a fake skeleton as a passenger just to use the HOV lane.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says a trooper pulled over the man on Thursday after noticing he had placed a fake skeleton in the passenger’s front seat.

The skeleton was sitting upright, wearing a hat and tied to the front seat.

Not only were they peaceful protesters, they were clean as well. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Thousands of people flooded the surrounding streets of the Capitol in Richmond on Monday for a gun-rights rally, however, locals in the area say the roads are the cleanest they've seen in quite some time.

There's a reason for that, said Matthew Keisling, a protester who made sure that once he shared his message, he went above and beyond to protect it.

"I've been in the area when there have been other protests and demonstrations and people leave a lot of trash behind and it waters down the message," Keisling said.

Advocates told 8News they made sure to clean up after the rally because they felt leaving trash behind "represents the group and the movement very poorly."

They lay waste to the farmers, the shopkeepers, the clerks, the laborers, the common men and women "the common clay of the new west - you know, morons" when the pretentious shitbirds and blue falcons of the upper-middle class and above, the snots of academia, the revolting cast of deputy-under-secretaries for this, that, and the other are the true targets he and they should have aimed at.

So we got a sputum sample, put it on a slide. Three guesses as to what I saw, and the first two don't count.

64 Graham Trainor, president of the Oregon AFL-CIO

Recently, the unions in Oregon protested the shocking fact that men were paid more than women at Fred Meyer, a subsidiary of Kroger that is the major supermarket chain in the Northwest.

It turned out that this was primarily because the best-paid workers at Fred Meyer are the guys who unload the trucks in the middle of the night. This is hard physical labor, graveyard shift only, and it turns out that women aren't very interested in those jobs for some reason.

No matter, the unions boycotted Fred Meyer for awhile, to protest this horrible pay disparity. I've seen no indication that the union consulted with the guys unloading the trucks before they decided to do this.

It's interesting the extent to which even unions have become feminized (the fact that most labor union members these days are government workers helps contribute to this).

157 141 My one good fog story is we got stuck in fog as kids between Catalina and Newport on a Sunday. Missed school on Mon. Looking back, mom must have been scared to death. I remember dad telling me to take the fog horn, hang on to the stantion, go to the bow and blow like a mofo. Huge shipping vessel out of Long Beach coming on us. Didn't realize till years later how bad that would have been.
Posted by: Infidel at January 26, 2020 10:29 PM (MTxDQ)

Even when the cargo ships slow down to half speed in Puget Sound, in the shipping lanes, they aren't changing direction if a small boat pops up in front of them or slowing down, for about 10 miles.

And having them go by during the summertime in good weather when bobbing in the Sound with the engines off, they really don't make a lot of noise, other than the whooshing sound from that bulbous bow.

167 I did a few stop-frames on the guy who confronted Elizabeth Warren about free education, and I have an identifying garment.

He is wearing a replica fighter-pilot jacket, appears to be real leather, and on the back is a large "8" with wings on each side -- guess you know what that means -- and an embroidered 3/4 view of a B-17.

I have a very similar jacket. Mine was part of a fairly expensive package deal given to me as a gift by my immediate family, that involved an EAA membership, a ground school session, and an hour of flying, left seat, an aircraft named "Aluminum Overcast." It's in my logbook, countersigned by the supervising instructor pilot, and I intend to be buried with that logbook.


I suppose you can buy one of these coats outright, with a contribution to one of the aircraft foundations. They are not cheap. I prefer to think that the gentleman is a high-ranking officer (some with get this) in the Commemorative Air Force. And I prefer to think of him as my brother.


Senator Warren has knowingly impersonated a motorcyclist, and now has fucked with a B-17 pilot. She probably thinks that this weill cause good things to happen to her.

He was flying at night and was only rated for daylight flying. As a boater I can tell that even if you know the river like the back of your hand in daylight, nighttime is something altogether different. The shore lights interrupt so much, that they can mask the navigation markers, and the pattern that you are seeing is not where you think that pattern ought to be. Nighttime is completely messed up when you are on the water and you better be sober; I can't even imagine flying at night.


(One time after a fireworks patrol we were going done the Detroit River from Belle Isle, to get to out moorings. We were between downtown Detroit and downtown Windsor - lots of lights - and I am looking ahead and "hey, why did all of those lights on the Ambassador Bridge go out...oh crap..." it was a freighter, coming right at us, and we hauled to starboard as fast as we could. The lights disappeared into the shore lights, and the sound was behind an inch of steel about 750' behind the bow. Yeah - fun.)

I rode in one once and I loved it. I had taken one of those 7 day raft trips through the Grand Canyon. At the end, they brought you out of the canyon by helicopter, took you to an airstrip, then a small airplane piloted by an aging cowboy flew you back to where you had started the raft trip.

The cowboy flying the small airplane over the Grand Canyon was scarier than the helicopter. He would fly it on its side so you could look down at the canyon.

He was over water. If he couldn't see any lights on the horizon, he may have lost his awareness of the aircraft's flight attitude. Greenhorn pilots then typically haul back on the control yoke, because they are convinced they are losing altitude. Eventually, the aircraft stalls, and goes into a spin. Game over. Friend of mine, a commercial pilot, said from the time the pilot loses his sense of the horizon, until the fatal spin begins, can be as little as 30 seconds.

I recall a conversation with a couple of pilots not too long after JFK Jr crashed.

I know very little about flying, but they thought that given Jr was visual-only, and the haze of the late afternoon - early evening, they thought it was understandable.

Also, Jr had a broken foot, or sprained ankle, and they thought it had an effect on his foot pedal activity.

But what I also recall with that conversation was a lot of beers.

He was over water. If he couldn't see any lights
on the horizon, he may have lost his awareness of the aircraft's flight
attitude. Greenhorn pilots then typically haul back on the control
yoke, because they are convinced they are losing altitude. Eventually,
the aircraft stalls, and goes into a spin. Game over. Friend of mine, a
commercial pilot, said from the time the pilot loses his sense of the
horizon, until the fatal spin begins, can be as little as 30 seconds.

Posted by: LeftCoast Dawg

Years ago I was visiting a buddy in Seattle . It had started snowing in the early afternoon and by rush hour there was about 3 inches. My buddy said we're not going anywhere we can't walk to. His apartment was at the bottom of a rather steep hill. We dragged his sofa and a 6 pack out to the sidewalk to watch. After about a half hour of entertaining interpretive car dancing we watched a guy pull up to the stop sign at the bottom of the hill. He sat there for several minutes. Finally he turned his car off got out and walked away, leaving it at the stop sign. We walked down the block to a local dive bar that night.

You know, the one and only time I was ever at the controls of an airplane was when I took one of those $20 introductory rides in a Cessna 150 that flying schools used to offer as a come-on.

For some reason, I could not get a good feeling for where the horizon should be relative to the sloping nose of the airplane to keep it in level flight, but I spotted the artificial horizon instrument right away, and just kept the airplane silhouette right between the horizontal bars.

I was on a trans-Pacific Qantas flight, landing at LAX. Early morning, heavy fog, so you couldn't see the ground.

We're about thirty seconds from touchdown, when the pilot cranks up the engines, pulls the nose up, and starts climbing out of there. Plane does a 180 to head out to sea to do another approach, and the pilot comes on the intercom, and says: "Er - there was another plane on the runway."

I can tell that even if you know the river like the back of your hand
in daylight, nighttime is something altogether different. The shore
lights interrupt so much, that they can mask the navigation markers, and
the pattern that you are seeing is not where you think that pattern
ought to be. Nighttime is completely messed up when you are on the water
and you better be sober; I can't even imagine flying at night.

I remember when this happened. Rush Limbaugh explained the benefits of being instrument rated, and that the sundown horizon is incredibly vague, and that you can slowly descend without even knowing you are descending. Bill Whittle also wrote about a pilot needing to be instrument rated: In other words, do not trust your eyes. Trust the instruments.

When you lose the horizon, quit lookin' outta the damn winders.

That Attitude Indicator, Vertical Speed Indicator and Altimeter will serve VERY well, if you just watch THEM instead of the now-useless (non) view outta the damn windshield.

Now, you still might be screwed without actual IFR navigational skills, i.e: not knowing how to use the charts, Navigation Radio, Glideslope Indicator and a few other key skills.

But if you use the panel there in front of you, it'll tell you what you need to maintain straight on course, wings level, pinned to your intended altitude and THEN you can get on the VHF voice radio and holler for HELP!

I had the bad luck, but good fortune to fly in "scudding clouds" with about 2,000 ft. agl base, with a very sharp instructor. He let me fly some through some of the lower puffs, just to know those instruments as they're meant to be used.

No, that's not IFR qualified. But as he explained, that's what it can look like right before you're in way more trouble than you can handle. So, descend 500 ft. and get below the haze.

Which we did, but alas, it kept closing in, so he took the controls and adroitly brought us back to the wee tiny airport. (West Park Airport, San Antonio, TX. The site of which is now a trailer park, alas.)

Valuable lesson though.

newbies tend to believe their inner ear instead of the gyro compass and horizon, and climb gauge.
Often newbies don't really understand what they do because they are basically driving a car in the air.

Your inner ear only feels changes in balance, and if you are climbing or banking you are under some centripedal acceleration that can fool your ear, especially if you can't verify it visually by the horizon.

Unfortunately when flying, when you lose vision, your brain reverts to your balance center and seat of the pants for attitude control. Both of which lie and kill you.

IIRC, Junior was flying parallel to the coast, aiming for an island. Once he lost the daylight, he should have turned to West compass course, and then used his instruments to maintain altitude. Once over land, he ought to have been able too see lights, and find the horizon again. And if he got on the radio, Air Traffic Control could probably find him on radar, and direct him to a safe airfield to land on.

316 My fog story still gives me palpitations.

My ex and I were crossing the Straits of Juan de Fuca in our 25 foot Catalina sailboat when we hit a fogbank about halfway across. It was so dense I couldn't see the bow of the boat from the cockpit. I had the airhorn out and we were hearing the big tankers coming in from the ocean. Locating sound is nearly impossible with the much fog.

We went as fast as we could to get close enough to some of the islands to be out of the shipping lanes. Our two young boys played in the salon below and had no clue. I was terrified.

I was on a plane that did that, a commercial 727 over Mexico, headed down to Guadalara. (I've been told that most commercial pilots in Mexico are frustrated wannabe fighter pilots) But after being scared to death that the plane was going to crash, I looked out the window (so did everyone else) and below us was solid jungle, with a deep narrow canyon cutting through it like a giant knife cut. And just below us, big river was flowing out of the jungle into the canyon producing one of the most magnificent waterfalls I've seen, and I don't even know it's name.

The sight actually made the hot shot flying worth it.

I already commented on you're basically the controls but the first thing you actually learn when you're recovering from an unusual attitude on instruments is to let go of the controls for a few seconds and allow the plane to stabilize without you screwing things up worse. Then you take an assessment of the instruments and what the airplane is doing, then you recover.

Because on the Detroit River you have to deal with both, and south of Ecorse all of the channels and shallows and islands. If you have a cruiser and are not moored (or aren't one of the fishermen*) then getting out of the channel, dropping anchor, and spending a night like that is pretty darn good.

Military grid coordinates of event: ZA189689

Additional information about this casualty:
On 2 June 1972 CPT Joe Eubanks was flying right seat with CW2 Bruce Delan as aircraft commander on an ARVN resupply run near Kontum. They came under heavy .51 cal fire that shot out all cyclic control. As they went in, Mr. Delan pulled in all the collective he had and made a hard landing that put the rotor through the windshield in Joe's lap. Joe had no visible injuries, but all attempts to release him failed due to the tangled wreckage and spreading fire. The crew chief and gunner had to drag Bruce away before the A/C exploded. He still suffered burns on his hands and face. CPT Eubanks burned to death in the wreckage and CW2 Delan was medevaced home with burns and a back compression. He later returned to duty stateside and is now flying choppers in Australia (address Unknown). Submitted by Thomas C. Schalk on 25 Feb 1989.

382 >>Where are the freighters? Where are the other boats and are their drivers lit as f*ck?

>>Because on the Detroit River you have to deal with both, and south of Ecorse all of the channels and shallows and islands. If you have a cruiser and are not moored (or aren't one of the fishermen*) then getting out of the channel, dropping anchor, and spending a night like that is pretty darn good.


Yea, coastal and inland stuff can be harder. It's funny that we at least pretend to license vehicle drivers but anyone with a checkbook can operate a boat and the commercial stuff can be a pain.

But once you get offshore most of that crap goes away and you are closer to God than I have ever found on earth.

401 Juan Williams isn't necessarily wrong. The President is head of state as well as head of government. And personally, I'm convinced the reason he gives is why neither Reagan nor either of the Bushes did what Trump just did.

Maybe that was political cowardice masquerading as the better part of virtue.

That said, Williams is far from being right. What he misses is is that this isn't the 80s. It's not even the oughts. This is a country that hasn't been divided like this since the 1850s.

So the questions that need asking are "how did we get here?" and "who's responsible"

It ain't Trump.

Triple-Redundant high-end GPS Chart Plotters. No less than three different radar systems/frequencies, covering long range, all the way down to millimeter-wavelength radar, which can pick out individual channel markers when entering port.

This plus FLIR (Forward Looking Infra Red) night-vision *and* Thermal Imaging, they can literally, see through night and fog.

Oh, and as a backup? There is a trend to resume to the Ship's Navigator taking Sun or Star sights, four times a day, in order to "confirm" the electronics.

Plus it keeps that Officer in touch with the manual system in case of the electronic systems failing.

They can literally dock the ships in pea-soup fog conditions.

It's just that no sane Harbormaster or Coast Guard Station will LET them.

As three recent deaths in the Galveston Ship Channel can attest, it's risky even for the Pros.

432 I'm not saying this is what happened. And I certainly am not dissing any soldier/sailor who did die.
That said, one of the things the military will do if they don't want or can't admit to deaths in some area they're not supposed to be or where we don't folks to know we were there is if any of the guys inserted dies, they will be said later on that they died in a helo crash or some such. This might also be if they want to hide that soldiers and sailors did die during those missile strikes by Iran.
We now know that some guys were injured to the point of having brain damage. You don't get brain damage without some other part of your body taking damage also. So for that to be all that they sustained raises questions and now a helo goes tits up with also 30 some soldiers involved (and weren't the brain damaged ones also about 30?)
I'm thinking maybe Iran scored a hit on a barracks. A squad bay or two will hold about half a company which can be 60 men easily. ( the odd squid was probably their corpsman)
So maybe they hid that the strikes did hurt soldiers/sailors because they didn't want to be forced into a retaliatory strike at this time. I'm okay with that. I thought is was inconceivable that Iran could launch that many missiles and not hurt anybody at all.
Or it could be just a squad that got taken out being somewhere they weren't supposed to. Or it could be just a helo went down.
Either way, we'll probably never know for sure.
Don't anyone who doesn't know me get all twisted up cause ain't no way I've got a problem with any of this. Except maybe them having to lie at us. I wish they didn't have to do that. And they look bad getting caught out about the brain damaged guys. How's it going to look if they get caught about the helo going down.

446 It's late at night and I'm tired so I'll just comment about Star Trek a bit here.

I wasn't born when the original series was up. I saw some of the movies but since I hadn't seen the series, many of the references flew by me. The first few seasons of the Next Generation, also, I didn't get to see at the time (and I'd heard they were bad, which they were). I started to perk up and take notice in the middle 1990s. Bits and pieces. Best Of Both Worlds, Yesterday's Enterprise, and that arc where the Klingons kick Worf out.

These were, of course, the best of the TNG episodes. Later I got the DVDs and figured out what the whole of Star Trek was supposed to be about. It wasn't even about that silly Roddenberry utopia.

Star Trek was about a future where decency and diplomacy could win against stupidity and evil. It was an Asimovian approach to the future - which I loved, because I loved Asimov's stories.

There's more I could say [I've deleted much of what I've typed here], but I will say I rewatched the 3-7 seasons of TNG a lot. I really wanted to believe that institutions like Starfleet and men like Picard existed, or could exist.

This 'Picard' series up now... it's ruined all that, in the name of Relevance and Current Year. Well when it makes everything about Current Year it's not thinking about future years. It's not thinking about people who might pick up on this later, like I picked up TNG in the 2000s.

'Picard' is not showing a vision of anything good (however we can debate whether Roddenberry's vision was good). It's just wearing the Captain's skin over something nihilistic and horrible.

I always had the impression John Bolton was a hardass and tough guy, but never thought of him as a spineless lefty or #Never.

That's why, when I heard this a day or two ago, I immediately thought of the guy with the mustache on Red Eye for years, and thought "nah".

Unlike Mittens, I don't see Bolton back stabbing anyone who is supposed to be on his side.

This was perfect timing between Bolton/Dems/NYT/Wash Post. Bolton gets book sales boost, Dems get their hit on Trump and probably Bolton as a witness, NYT gets huge scoop, and Wash Post gets the Amazon cash from the book being listed tonight.

Meanwhile, Trump has a tweet.

I get out to the breakwater and on of those pea soupers Long Island get now and then came down and I could see shit past the bow of the boat.
I turned around and slunk back to the dock. My knees were knocking. That's a deep water vessel port and they also take in barges of oil, gasoline and natural gas and I could hear large vessel horns I got out of the ship channel as fast as i could with the light winds cause I wouldn't have seen them until they ran me over. Lesson luckily learned without damage. I still get the shivers when I think of that.

Great post.

I was 11 when TOS debuted, and watched it all.

To understand the original Trek, you must remember that VietNam was starting to get real sporty, and the generation gap was getting as deep and wide as the Grand Canyon.

Roddenberry's themes seem more understandable when you consider it against this background. Then, or now, nobody under 25 knows crap. But they can be idealistic.

Back in the early 80's (before ground avoidance tech and ultra fine weather/radar avionics) I flew in the back as medic for East Bay Regional Park Police's Hugh's 500 E class helos.
There were days that yas just did not fly...like fog or cloud ceilings below 1000...
Watched the vid of the impact site down the road from where I presently work and thought "shit man, IFR cert or not...the base clouds were covering the low lying hills for craps sake...what the hell were you thinking coming up Las Virge's in this soup. (For the record, this is the standard flight path for helos coming from the coast near Malibu or going out to the coast from the valley but the mountains and hills are very unforgiving to pilots not knowing just how quickly shitty it gets if you try and fudge your flight plan...the whole thing sucks if the pilot(s) were trying to impress the Mamba that they could deliver the team to Thousand Oaks on time......

511 Trump denies what apparently is supposed to be the "bombshell" from Bolton - that is, that he did a perfectly appropriate and legal thing, and used leverage to get a foreign state to help us out, in this case by re-opening and continuing investigations of shenanigans involving US officials and past US elections.

Apparently Bolton denies it, too.

But this doesn't stop the remarkably clueless usual suspects from beclowning themselves again - not talking Dems or ggerg here.

So what happens to a future president - or this president in his second term - when the situation calls for leaning on a foreign state to do something that involves an American political figure? Obviously Trump will be immune now - to almost anything - one of the funnier consequences of a ridiculous and frivolous impeachment attempt.

But while his team and some surrogates, almost in passing, have alluded to the key point that *even the alleged activity was perfectly appropriate and legal*, they've not given it equal billing with debunking the baseless, assumed fact pattern pushed by the idiots.

(Democrats do not have to be told not to go because.) They probably reiterated the line about dividing the half country on a hot-button issue. But after more than three years of bullshit investigations, Trump told them, 'I already alienate half the county; I'm going to speak! What have I got to lose?'

So true. Trump had to deal with New York construction unions and suppliers. And any alleged criminal organizations that may or may not have been funded with their actions when dealing with contractors.

I'm not the troll, but it seems to me that the cause of Kobe's death, and that of all the others aboard, is that he was a wealthy celebrity. Ordinary people, if they want to take their child to a sportsball game a hundred miles distant, would get up early, hop in the car, and be on the road about 3 hours before game time.

But a wealthy celebrity says, "Hah. I am above all that. I will charter a chopper, and take my kids and her friends and her friends' parents, and we will take off 40 minutes before game time, and get there in plenty of time.

When NPR fired him for political expediency, after years of service, Roger Ailes immediately gave him a 2 year contract for a million a year. And that contract has renewed for many more years.

542 I watched 'Life, Liberty and Levin' last night. Peter Sweitzer was on, author of 'Profiles in Corruption'. The Bidens are thoroughly corrupt, the whole damned family, brothers, children, son-in-law. But there was an interesting tidbit about 'Lunch Pail' Joe riding Amtrak to work.

It seems its true Biden commuted to DC from Delaware on Amtrak. It's also clear there was Biden corruption when it came to Amtrak. But the best bit about ol' Choo Choo was if Biden was running late for his regularly scheduled train, he'd call some number (probably only he had) and get the regularly scheduled train to wait for his arrival. As if all those other passengers on that train didn't have places to be and people to meet. Didn't matter, they had to wait because Gropin' Joe had to get to DC and he was running behind schedule. Now the regularly scheduled train could run behind schedule, too.

Joe has been oh so impo'tent from the get-go. One of our political mandarins deserving of a guillotine haircut.

I like to try low cost reds, because my wallet can't afford expensive reds. I know the difference. It wasn't always the case.

The brand is Hedgeline, Cabernet sauvignon. I bought it at Costco, it was about ten bucks, and it said it used Washington grapes, but was vinted and bottled in Cali.

I am proud of my state's wine industry, and it is growing constantly. I like finding values in red wine at lower price points, like ten bucks, that taste well against twenty buck wines. There are lots of them that come out locally, that don't get distributed nationally because they are too small.

This one tastes like a five buck wine. At 7-11.

But it's not corked, and 13.5% alc by volume. So I persevere.

The S-76 is a very much desired and historically acknowledged air frame that has a proven track record in it's many revisions since 1976. Kobe's craft(recent version) had a flawless record with regular maintenance and total pro pilots...cuz Kobe after all...
The mystery that has to be resolved is why a craft with top drawer avionics(ground avoidance+) and 2 pilots(IFR Certed?) flying in (now here is the 64 dollar question) total soup up the transition from the coast in Las Verg's canyon, slam into a hillside less than 8 miles from their destination?

I had a good look at the crash site from above.

Had a major engine problem occurred at less than 800 ft, the left seat pilot may have attempted a (left 180 degree turn) to acquire a possible emergency landing site but ended up with the up slope of the hill full in his face.. pulling pitch and back cyclic at the same time, (and right rudder I assume) the craft impacted tail down at speed and forward speed carried the craft up slope as the main rotor bit into the hillside and pirouetted the craft across the slope and then downward as the main rotor disintegrated rupturing the fuel tanks and causing fire to erupt in the main fuselage as it tumbled down slope til it lodged in heavy brush and continued to burn.

I'm guessing for sure.....

Under my ratings any Republican with a CR rating less than 90 is a RINO, under 50 and they are a DIABLO. This is except for specail circumstances like Romney, he hasn't been there long enough to get a rating but he is widely know to be a back stabbing shit.

605 It's really quite surreal that the Boomer generation, that is characterized by everybody getting zooted on drugs and banging everything within reach like jackrabbits, are now forming moral majority inquisition boards tasked with overseeing college students' sexual liaisons.

Free love for me, but not for me.

I question what the Columbia marine's real crime was when he refused to bang a drunk whore in the minds of Columbia officials.

Was it:

A) He disrespected an empowered woman's right to be "f*cked and f*cked right this very moment" by questioning her sobriety, and thus imposing his male patriarchy by withholding penis

B) Being an actual testosterone-laden male that verbally expressed an interest in banging her at a later time, TBD, when she was sober

C) Making the board long for the days when they themselves used to act like reprobates and f*ck everything that moved, and upsetting themwith the fact that an able-bodied male was cutting in on their action of banging students themselves

or, more likely, was it

D) He violated unknown, unwritten, unspecified conduct codes that exist only in the minds of Ivy League elitists that are just like any other communist regime, setting rules that are to be determined on a case by case basis, regardless of fairness or legality, to demonstrate their power over every aspect of any given individuals rights and dealings, no matter how personal the matter

608 The transforming power of praise-

Unless our hearts are stirred by the divine grace to something more than a semblance of love and gratitude and praise, you and I cannot get into the walks and words of this trying life and live safely, walk wisely, or work successfully for God. With that power of praise in us, we may be the most practical of human beings and the most useful in all our walks of life.. It makes a man a better husband, a woman a better wife and children better children to know what it is to praise continually. The man who rejoices much walks most safely. He works most vigorously when his soul is filled with the Holy Spirit, when his whole being is consecrated to the living God. That man or woman has been given to them the wisdom to know and the power to do in a divinely practical way all the duties of life God grants us.

Latest is that it's much more contagious than SARS and it has a very long incubation period. Number of "recovered" is 1/2 the number dead. The 3% death rate is meaningless. It will probably be a couple of weeks before anything realistic is known. Perhaps the CCP is hiding everything ...

Gun Thread: Space Force!! [Weasel]

space force pic scaled.jpg

Let's hear it for the gol' danged SPACE FORCE!! I don't know about you all, but that's a spiffy logo right there! And apparantly it made the liberal retards cry so it's even better. Thank you President Trump! I wonder what sort of cool death ray guns the SF will eventually have... anyone care to hazard a guess?

Let's find out what else has been happening in the world of guns this week, shall we?

If you're tired of listening to me blather on about Virginia, you can skip ahead to the other exciting content below, but before you do consider this; Virginia represents an all out assault by the left on all of our gun rights. Lefties everywhere are watching Virginia and taking notes. What happens here, may soon be coming to you.

Virginia
The bigly huge and beautiful 2nd Amendment VCDL Lobby Day was held in Richmond on Monday, and was by all reports a great success. I was not there in person, but based on reports from those who were, and from what I saw streamed live, it was an entirely peaceful rally with an outstanding turnout by 2nd Amendment supporters. There appeared to be a few small groups of counter-protesters, for example one anti-Trump group numbering about a dozen, who were mostly ignored by the more than 20,000 there supporting gun rights. People were there from across the country, and may God Bless each and every one of them. The exact number in attendance is diffucult to know as they were spread out in the streets across many city blocks, but suffice it to say there was a huge turnout. Antifa goons and the pinch-faced scolds of the Moms Against Everything cult stayed home, and as a result there was no trouble, as many had feared.

Were you there? Care to share your experience?

Unfortunately, Governor Dipshit must not have peeked out the window and thereby failed to note what was happening in his front yard. A number of anti-gun bills continue to move along in the Senate, and here is a summary of where legislation stands as of January 23rd courtesy of the VCDL.

Not to be outdone by the Senate, this week the leftist idiots in the House of Delegates have lurched into motion, working on their own list of infringements to your Constitutionally protected rights. Here is an update of where House legislation stands , at the end of the week courtesy of VSSA.

It's too early to tell if the rally will ultimately have a legislative impact, given the continued movement of leftist bills noted above. However, Lobby Day wasn't ever going to be the end of anything, but rather only the beginning. It's very important for citizens to continue applying pressure on local governments in support of the grassroots 2nd Amendment Sanctuary movement. The morale boosting turnout at Lobby Day, and the fact it did not devolve into a riot, gives our side a certain amount of momentum and it's important to keep that alive. The jackasses running Virginia for the time being may not act like it now, but the grassroots solidarity of the people has their attention. Stay tuned.

******

Moving Along
An often overlooked but very important aspect of shooting is the trigger pull technique. Here's a short article from the CMP (h/t redc1c4) which everyone should take a minute to read, and the basics apply to both handgun and rifle shooting alike. I cannot tell you how many students I've coached who yank or slap the trigger, and once it's become a habit it's difficult to unlearn. The correct technique isn't complicated; simply use the pad of your finger to exert slow and steady pressure straight back until the gun fires. Depending on your setup, you can pre-tension the trigger slightly once you become accostomed to the break point. I am not a fan of super-light trigger weights on rifles, and have my competition guns all set to the same 1.5 pounds. Handguns obviously have much heavier triggers, and you should spend some time during each range session s l o w i n g d o w n while concentrating on not being spastic on the trigger.

******

New Colt Python
I own a number of Colt revolvers, but I do not own a Python. Yet. The classic Python is an amazing example of craftsmanship, but the guys in the video below make the argument the new Colt Python is better due to advances in metallurgy and machining techniques. The video was made at SHOT Show and is almost 20 minutes long, but worth every minute of your time.

The new Colt Python lists for $1,499 which is a chunk of change, but I'm pretty sure I need one.

******

Link-O-Rama

Taking advantage of my own great advice, I bought two cans of 7.62x51mm M2 Ball ammo from SG Ammo. It's surplus from the 1980's made by PMC, and looks just fine. I have no doubt it'll shoot fine, too. I will take the chrono to the farm soon and let you know how it performs.

I'm really very seriously not kidding around anymore. Buy Ammo

Rooks.-.250; some prefer .297/.230, a similar one.
Rabbits.-.250 or .300
Red Deer, Scotch. - .256 Mannlicher
Chamois. - Nothing less than .360
African Antelopes.-.360
Indian Deer, Ibex, Tibet Wild Sheep.-.256 Mannlicher, Mauser .275
Lions and Tigers.-.360 to .450 h.v. express; the new .375/.303 has proved successful at Tigers with the capped bullet.
Eastern Elephants.- .577 h.v. rifle, 100 grs. cordite and 750 grs. solid and capped bullet.
Eastern Buffalo.-.360, .400, and .450 h.v. express.
African Buffalo.-.450 h.v. express and .577 h.v. express.

Yes.

It was a typically Trumpian compromise - the AF gets to retain nominal ownership of the enterprise while space ops get their own Chief of Staff and domain.

This also made the other services happy because it eliminated an additional service secretary. Also, less red tape.

55 I bought guns and ammo.

My lower receiver arrived for my AR pistol. The guy who gave me the upper didn't need his 5.56 ammo since he gave me the upper so I scored 120 rounds for $30. Better than retail.

I reported from the VCDL rally.

It was big. It was polite.

At first I thought also spitting into the wind. Anti gun bills continue apace in the General Assembly. The assault firearms ban had already died in Senate committee. There was hinkiness in the process so I think it is just mostly dead. The assault firearms registration bill is moving along though.

Also there is a bill punishing gun owners for not reporting lost or stolen guns within 5 days. I think they may be worried about the widespread canoe incidents.

But I think that what is really happening is they are going to declare victory over the NRA with the bills and not much will change.

As in other states there will be a lot of non-compliance. And a lot of undocumented firearms and magazines.

People will get charged on incidentAl charges when they get arrested for something else and have an unregistered assault firearm. Some people will end up getting prosecuted. Some lefty legislator will get caught in violation and will get away with it.

But I don't think the status quo changes much.

64 I have been to the range the past two weekends. Been going to the indoor one by me due to it is much closer to me than the outdoor one (by about an hour) and the weather up here in the NorthEast has been quite squirrely. Hey, I like my comforts!!
So my drill has been start at 7 yards and put through 50 rounds. Two to center mass, one to head. I then move out to 10 yards and repeat with another 50 rounds. Then I finish up at 15 yards same drill.
I have worked on my grip and stance but one thing that really helped is that I slowed down. 3 or 4 visits ago I blew through 160 rounds in under a half hour. Now I am taking my time and I am noticing a BIG difference.

It's been reblued, new grips and still has some storage gunk lurking within but the serial numbers match and its from 1921, which is cool.

Reading that West VA has a clause in their constitution that allows counties from VA to leave VA and join West VA. At least 86 of VA's 95 counties have declared themselves "2A Sanctuaries".

Oh man, I hope this ramps up quick. In time for the 2020 census. VA would go from 13 to about 4 electoral votes, and West VA up from 5 to about 14 or so.

Nothing less than the destruction of the state of Virginia will be adequate for these gun-grabbers. Give it to them. Right up where it don't shine.

84 I need to shoot a box o' fifty rounds from that new Colt Python.

Given modern tolerances and vastly superior machining consistency, I'm hoping it'll be of superior accuracy.

However, the factory grip shape on a Python is about as horribly non-ergonomic as was made in the Classic Era.

Back in the day, there were literally hundreds of aftermarket options. Today? Not so much, I think.

I wonder, if the marketplace will drive aftermarket grip makers to bring back some of the classic offerings? Even remakes of "out of business" manufacturers.

87 Weasel, I for one thank you for your VA coverage, for as you rightly pointed out, it could be coming right here to TX. (It's not the people from Cali I fear, or others: its the urbanization of TX and the people there, whether they arrived yesterday or can trace their TX lineage clear back to Stephen F. Austin, beginning to farm out THEIR responsibilities to government, as tends to happen in all big cities...but I digress.)

I am critical of the cops but I will absolutely give them their props where they are due. I was skeptical of what they would do: do they pick their paymasters or the people? All the accounts I read tell me the cops picked the people, and understood - rightly - that the people they dealt with for crowd control were for the most part low threat and simply there for political protest. I appreciate the cops doing that, and understanding that for the most part they were dealing with the people that would give them the LEAST trouble of all.

In fact I think about 99% of those out there need huge props in showing what "the right of the people to peacebly assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances" looks like.

Now, as the VA government has made it clear they don't remotely care about basic rights, it's time to do this: NO violence by any means, BUT do take some time to watch some of the rowdiest clips of the UK Parliament's Prime Minister's Questions, and make your town halls and such look like that. (Well, I'm sorry, but when government wants to infringe upon your rights, showing your displeasure with your elected officials is likewise your right. And if they don't like it? Cordially invite them to resign.)

Their SP5 is a faithful copy of the original, but being H&K, their asking $2,800 apiece for the privilege of owning one. And given the very limited supply thus far, you'd be lucky to acquire a SP5 for under three grand. Enter Palmetto State Armory (PSA). A long awaited PSA MP5 clone should finally be released to the public this Spring. And the price is expected to come in around $1,300.

115 Finally a real and serious question.

Shipping for ammo...

I found a deal I like from Carolina Munitions for 1000 rounds of .223. $250, fine ready to pay it. Shipping is $52 by UPS.

Just to check, I went to Lowest Ammo for the same order, price $251. Shipping is $67.

Is this typical? Is UPS increasing the price due to it being ammunition?

With an extra 20% being applied for shipping, is buying online the best option?

116 This week was Browning Hi Power week. I shot one each in .40 S&W and one in 9mm.

Both were reliable and accurate out to 40 feet, but the .40 S&W was very snappy in the recoil and a tad hard to rack. The sights and safety are much better than on the 9mm version with the three square system and the safety being a tad larger than the 9mm which helped in feeling it and flipping it. Magazine only had 11 rounds as compared to the 9mm's 13 rounds which is why it was named the "Hi Power" back in the day.

The 9mm version was much more pleasant to shoot and seemed to be the right round for this pistol. Easy to handle and shoot, the 9mm version just plain felt better all around. As it was designed to be.

On an ammo note, if you have any old warhorses like me check out Steinel Ammunition for rifle and pistol ammo.

After missing last week at the range, too Marine ratched to meet mark at our usual digs.

I shot a bunch with youngun's PPQ, and my Glock 19 and my 1911. I must say, I did well.
Young ratched, after he got in the groove, was great as well.

Look at the previous threads, we have been following it.

Very sad day, no matter what one thinks of pro basketball.
Posted by: LeftCoast Dawg at January 26, 2020 07:11 PM (sy5kK)

As a die-hard Spurs fan, I despised Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Fakers back in the day. (I still despise the Fakers.) But I was very much looking forward to the day when Bryant was going to make his well-deserved trip to Springfield.

Then I wake up to the news. Then I heard his daughter was killed in the same crash.

A depressing day all around.

(I heard a report from a friend and former colleague who was attending the Spurs gave versus the Raptors today that both teams purposely took a 24-second violation each as a tip o' the hat to Kobe Bryant.)

188 JJ Abrams did the remake for the Star Trek movie entirely for the cynical purpose of directing a Star Wars movie. But in truth Andrew Stanton's John Carter of Mars, regardless of whether it was good or not, would have been a better sine qua non.

I've said that Lucas and JJ Abrams are opposite sides of a coin that insure that the franchise doesn't expand and mature. Lucas and JJ are both lazy, but JJ is a master of BSing his audience. Genndy Tartakovsky would have been a good choice, and in truth it should have been given to an animator to direct.

I'm watching the climax of John Carter, and the shape shifter ... get this ... shifts shape in way that advances the goal of that character in a clever way. Suck a death-stick Lucas.

200 Anyone have experience with the Colt Colteer 1-22? I bought one today.

Posted by: Weasel at January 26, 2020 07:50 PM (MVjcR)

201 Okay, found 'em. Lyman Products is now making the Pachymer Grips.

Here is the Gripper Pro. It's on a Colt Python, so "yay". https://tinyurl.com/qpcptru

In my opinion, this is one of the finest revolver grips ever made. Though the advertising blurb says it's 10% smaller than the regular Gripper model, it's actually an entirely different grip.

The Gripper has a much more "round" profile in the finger grooves, and the backstrap is covered by the grip. A lot of the recoil gets focused into the narrowness of those finger grooves.

The Gripper PRO leaves the backstrap exposed. And all of the major revolver makers have a pretty good profile on the backstrap side of things. So, no problems there in my opinionated world.

Further, the Gripper Pro has finger grooves that lie much flatter across the horizontal plane. This greatly increases the surface area in contact with the fingers, and like magic, the "felt" recoil level goes down. WAY down.

Finally, the palm-swell contours of the Gripper Pro just seem to fit better than the regular Gripper.

And forget about that "small hands" thing in the blurb. I've got sizeable hands, and the Gripper Pro just plain works better.

If you have a revolver, for a price in the mid $30s, you just can't go wrong by trying a set of these on for size.

Tell 'em I sentcha! (and they'll scratch their heads and go all "who the blazin' fu*k wazzat? never heard of 'im)

How about building a few nuclear power plants on the ocean floor - say, maybe off Bermuda - and having battery-powered submarines recharge there? or am I smoking crack.

After missing last week at the range, too Marine ratched to meet mark at our usual digs. It's been a while since I just stood and shot slowly, making sure my breath was calm and my brain completely focused on just pulling the trigger straight back. It was great! I shot a bunch with youngun's PPQ, and my Glock 19 and my 1911. I must say, I did well.
Young ratched, after he got in the groove, was great as well.

And mark is always patient, encouraging and generous.

Whoot!
Posted by: Nurse ratched at January 26, 2020 07:34 PM (PkVlr)


nurse,

apologies to you and Mark for missing out yesterday after I told you I was going to be there.

I took off Friday night to get to bed earlier than normal on Saturday morning. I met with a good friend, who's wife just walked out on him and their daughter after 24 years, went across the country, and hooked up with an ex-boyfriend that apparently started on Facebook. She had started taking mood-altering prescription drugs. Nobody understands it. Even her own twentish something daughter said she does not recognize her own mother.

The guy she hooked up with is a multiple felon.

I stopped by his place to pick up some ammo from him, and stayed to talk with him. I expected maybe an hour or so stop, and when I looked at my phone, it was 4am, and I lived an hour away.

Maybe next week. I would have liked to have met Marine rached.

How about building a few nuclear power plants on the ocean floor - say, maybe off Bermuda - and having battery-powered submarines recharge there? or am I smoking crack.
Posted by: boulder t'hobo at January 26, 2020 07:59 PM (ykYG2)


Maybe because Alpha is bad metric to use? Maybe one should look at kWh/cubic meter, or kWh/tonne weight.

I suspect a U-boat powered by an appropriate amount of Tesla batteries would have less range than a Tesla car.

A nuke sub can sail around the world, several times, on one load of reactor fuel.

255 What is the downside of reloads, any?
Posted by: Dave in Fla at January 26, 2020 07:51 PM (PHotS)


In terms of the Factory Reloads that are around for sale:
They usually use a variety of brass, so they'll be slightly inconsistent by nature. For plinking ammo it should be fine, just don't expect m.o.a. performance.

Another thing which probably depends on the particular manufacturer- the Reloads I bought all seem to skimp on the powder. They still go bang, but velocities are noticeably lower than standard for a given bullet weight.

259 I found it interesting on Friday that the Secret Service sniper teams set up for threats coming from areas other than the March for Life crowd towards PDT. They set up right beside us and all rifles were at the ready to shoot outward from the crowd.

Each team had one Barrett .50. All rifles were suppressed. The binos were 25x50 or greater. They were huge.

As soon as PDT finished his remarks, they packed up and left. Then they let the Park Service LEOs close again. They had chased them out earlier

264 One more thumbs-up on the Prvi ammo. They're also a good source for brass. One of the few for certain calibers, and their prices are good, and one hears the quality fine.

As for shipping, when using Ammoseek, as y'all should when shopping online, they have a little icon indicating relative shipping costs between vendors. Some are very, very high compared to others. SGAmmo always has been among the lowest. And though I haven't been buying ammo online for a while, TargetSports
USA always had free shipping on case quantities (and their prices were decent, too).

289 Haven't kept completely up with the idiocy in CA, but from what I've seen of summaries of the VA depredations, they're an echo of stuff here, and NY, and elsewhere (the anti-gun despots fortunately are not smart, which has cost them tactically in some instances, but they tend to just copy/paste their indefensible crap from state to state).

I'm waiting very impatiently for the judiciary to actually intervene and uphold a central, original, unambiguous constitutional right - something it likes to pride itself on (well, that, and legislating, and making s**t up, and usurping executive power without challenge, and gladly taking congressional power that is idiotically ceded to them).

Haven't checked, wonder if SAF or others have ID'd the most vulnerable (legally) infringements nation-wide to target for legal action. As noted above, a lot of the worst laws are similar or identical, so a domino effect will result if the farce that is the US judiciary ever decides to do one of its actual authorized jobs (well, even that one's a bit made-up, but at least has a long pedigree and makes *some* sense).

297 NASA and its patches predate Star Trek which only premiered on Sept 8, 1966.

Gene Roddenberry and Matt Jefferies were both WWII USAAF veterans. Gene as a pilot and Matt was assigned to the 301st Bombardment Group where he flew as a flight engineer on B-17s.

The United Federation of Planets logo is a circular design spangled with stars and bisected by cross-hairs.

The Star Fleet logo everyone is using to scream about infringement only came into existence at the time Star Trek: The Motion Picture went into production in 1978. Before this date the asymmetrical shield was the ship's patch for USS Enterprise and was worn on the breast of crew tunics, all other starships like USS Lexington had their own patch. The small star set in that shield means that crew member is command track, hence Kirk wore it. But in the 1978-79 time frame, Roddenberry declared the Star Fleet logo would use Enterprise's command track patch.

And that is the rest of the story. All who are screaming about this need to join Wesley Crusher in the airlock sans spacesuit or force field.

Ahem.

I have actually designed approved military heraldry. This is correct.

The interesting thing about Space Force's patch is that it did *not* abide by Air Force rules.

The 'tell' is in the colors. The Air Force requires all heraldry to include two colors - yellow (which is gold, representing excellence) and ultramarine blue (for the sky).

Neither of these are present, reinforcing the independence of the service.

I suspect that some heraldry will be 'grandfathered' into Space Force, but soon they will come up with their own mandatory colors and other requirements.

It's probably going to be a nuclear reactor burning uranium, barring some sudden breakthrough in fusion reactors (i.e. one that works). Marine reactors have an abundance of ocean water for cooling; outer space, not so much. They might have to run the reactor much hotter, and reject waste heat by radiating it away.

It's probably going to be a nuclear reactor burning uranium, barring
some sudden breakthrough in fusion reactors (i.e. one that works).
Marine reactors have an abundance of ocean water for cooling; outer
space, not so much. They might have to run the reactor much hotter, and
reject waste heat by radiating it away.

Yes, NASA should sue Rodenberry for infringement of their logos. You can look up the history of the Star Fleet logos, which have evolved heavily. First one was the one Capt. Pike was wearing in The Cage.

That came from the original NASA logo.

The triangular/delta/chevronish symbol goes way back to the Army Air Corps.

The new Space Force emblem is just an evolution of the seal for the previous USAF Space Command, which Space Force replaces.

404 Late to the thread, but spent time this week on cleaning up reloading stations and work bench to finish some firearm projects.

Finished messing around with my new AR-15 pistol build just because--it is pretty much a clone up front of an old school shortie with fixed fsb/gas block, chromed barrel, carbine length gas, adjustable gas key on the bolt carrier, and carry handle. To cut down on blast to the sides, went with a linear compensator--at back is a simple pistol buffer tube with several ways to go on that depending on what I feel like.

Midway was selling Polymer 80 Glock clones that allow a Glock 17 slide and lpk coupled with the shorter grip and magazine of the Glock 19 for under $80.

Regarding ammo, have a cheap bulk supplier in my backyard with not having to worry about shipping. Most of my factory ammo is simply a source of first fired brass and I prefer my reloads for the most part.

Hope all is well Weasel. Thanks for the thread.

Well of course it would be cheaper to make Burke-class destroyers. I was just responding to a call for new Iowa BB's, and saying start from the Montana plans (the last BB design) and the Alaska plans (the large cruisers) if you want to design the next generation of large surface combatants. And armor formulas have likely advanced over the past eighty years before we would even begin to envision forging something like that.

421 I don't know what the purpose of that shotgun-pistol 12 ga. SxS is. It's a modern style that uses 209 shotgun primers. I only use tradtional style black powder guns, so I have no interest.

Aside from novelty, I can't think of a specific audience. And that 6" barrel is weird. Just my opinion.

Maybe the maker thinks it could be a home defense weapon?
Posted by: JTB at January 26, 2020 08:49 PM (7EjX1)

I read a thread about it on some discussion board. One commentor suggested it as an anti-carjacking weapon.

Since it's a muzzle-loader, it's not a firearm in the eyes of the law, so no background check or paperwork. Legal even in California.

The weirdness factor is a part of the thing.
Home defense maybe but more, I think, an under the radar firearm. The video suggested that black powder is easy and cheap to get. Also, the weapon can be shipped without going through an FFL.

There is too much hogging and sagging for a brittle ceramic armor like Chobham to really work.

Given modern weapons, a supertanker with a triple hull, shaft-less propulsion power, and plenty of compartmentation and Halon on the outside hull would be a solid defense platform. Most warships these days are steel boxes armed with very large hammers. Defense is a strong offense first, with Kevlar, not armor being a little help.

Mark each enemy combatant with it's own drone armed with missiles (Or torps for an AUV)is another possibility.

Posted by: NaCly Dog at January 26, 2020 09:08 PM (u82oZ)

465 FWIW, To those that are interested.
Polymer 80 is probably one of the easiest ways to get into making your own Glock clone or doing an 80% lower for an AR. Directions and videos are quite good and most of what you need aside from power tools, files, etc. are available with the kit.

There are some tricks, using a small handheld router to do some aluminum 80% lowers but a bit more tool experience is needed to do it right.

These and 3D printers/CNC milling are rapidly making gun banners dreams into nightmares. Expect these to be a target in future legislation locally.

Just repeating with a lot of folks did back in the day when they had these old warhorses but wanted to fire cartridges through them. Black powder and percussion firing was more than sufficient to cause significant carnage for a long while.

A caution though, the pressure levels for these conversion cartridges is about the same as for the regular cylinder so no hotrodding.

Scuba_Dude, not quite correct.

Now we get into true Trek nerdism...

According to Michael and Denise Okuda's Star Trek Chronology: The History of the Future. Pocket Books. November 1996.

They also mention as conjecture at 2277 being the date but sinceStar Trek: The Motion Picture is has always been Enterprise logo and the movie occurred in 2271.

So even the die hard Trek fans can argue all they want.

It's worth mentioning that each gun shoots differently, practicing with one or two guns will make it easy to stay good with them. If you're like me and own too damn many guns, staying up on all of them is problematic.

Buy a few guns, get good with them, buy lots of ammo.

499 484, The new Python has significantly different lockwork than the old one and actually revives using a leaf main spring instead of a coiled one. It may take a bit of tweaking to make sure that the bolt (Colt's term) and cylinder notches work together. Tolerance gap at the forcing cone and cylinder might also be too tight.

My guess, early ones are fixed and it becomes a non-issue for later firearms. It would suck to pay premium though and have to send it back to the factory almost immediately.

511 Problem with using a classic BB design *without* the traditional, heavy armor.

The ship won't draft deeply enough to perform to the limits of the hull design.

A fully loaded, fueled, armed, provisioned and manned BB sits all the way down on the marks for good reason. Many good reasons.

Not merely basic seakeeping, but that deep draft better resists the recoil of the 16s.

And without the pure dead-weight of the torpedo-belt, the guns and armored gun-houses will leave ya with a pretty damn top-heavy ship.

Also, I'm pretty skeptical as to how much to "digitize" the thing.

The BB design could be (mostly) fixed by Damage Control Parties. Valves could be opened, closed, re-routed. By hand. Pretty tough to do that when Mr. Circuit Board gets fried, and there's not enough hands on deck to do the job.

For sure, the Nuke powerplant is the way to go on a new BB. But I'd keep a hella lot of steampunk in the plans.. because it's some really battle proven technology.

Oh, by the way. All but a damn few new Littoral Ships are crewed in traditional numbers, for just this reason. The Littorals have (supposedly) automated Damage Control, and very short-handed crews.

I don't trust those ships, and I don't trust that planning.

With a letter of marque you are permitted to pursue, capture, and sell foreign ships and their cargo, after an admiralty prize court has finished adjudicating the correctness of the seizure. It is pretty complicated. For instance...the capture of the Odenwald by USS Omaha and USS Somers. That was the last time there was prize money awarded to the USN.

Good point, one my friends and I discussed a bit last week, in fact.

We agreed that the best strategy is to pick the 'default' weapon and make sure you regularly practice with it. Know it inside and out. Bring other guns if you have them, but that's the one you are current on.

If you replace it or change to something else, THAT now is the one you have to use at every outing.

Unlike my friends, I've had the same carry gun for a long time. I know it well. I still practice with it, but I've got so many hours on it that shooting is basically instinctive. Still, it needs some time to reinforce that.

I also practice off-hand, etc. because you never know.

NASA astronauts really work to out-do each other on mission patches. NASA has an internal "heraldry" office that helps crews develop patches and approve them.

That burst will last 10 - 20 seconds. And then, a few hours later, the first photons will get here, and will see her start lightning up big time. It will reach peak brightness in about 10 days time, then plateau and gradually dim over months.

And then, after a year or two, it will disappear from the sky. Orion will be missing a shoulder.

550 AH Lloyd,
521, That is why I've carried a J-Frame far too long is simply it fits, shoots to my point of aim, and acts like an extension of my arms. I shoot my Sig p225 extremely well but I always worry about whether or not I will remember to decock if necessary. Because of that, I am moving to a more modern carry gun and the practice necessary to carry it.

And still the legality of the capture was contested in US courts, which eventually found for the US, and resulted in $3,000 per man for the boarding party and two months pay for everyone else.


Note - after contested in court. Any letter of marque would need to be incorporated to protect the owners and investors (do we even have laws for that now?) and engage the services of attorneys to argue the fitness of the capture, with the necessary depositions, taking of evidence, testimony...


With Somers and Omaha it was east - the US supplied the attorneys and the naval crews could be readily brought forth. With private parties - Good God - how much is this going to cost?

565 Final thought on Space Force heraldry: The "stars" actually seem to be a division of the field, a "bend" if you will.

Military heraldry is limited to three elements. The star is one, the combination planet/orbit/ship is another and then the bend of stars are the third. ("Bend celestial?" "Bend ad Astra?")

So it doesn't have to be an actual constellation, just stars serving as a division of the field. I used that in one of my designs to allow more elements into the design.

575 >> Which will all be 650 years after it actually happened.

Yes, according to the standard SR definition of simultaneity. But that's just a convention. It's perfectly valid to define simultaneity as "when the light gets here", and that's actually the practical astronomical definition in use anyway. We record such events as occurring when the light gets here.

Before that, such events are outside the light cone, can have no causal effect, so they haven't happened yet as far as any causal influence is concerned.

Winston, before I bought my BP pistol, I visited a lot of forums. Ended up buying from Taylors & Co cause they go over each firearm to ensure it's tight, etc..

1) I underestimated the civility and decorum of armed Americans (why this continues to amaze might be based on the dullards and hipsters I am forced to work and deal with.

2) I overestimated the courage of the Antifags. In the end, they are fags with retarded shit.

3) I do not trust LEO's, especially on the feral level. I fully anticipated subterfuge and goading.

I am so glad I was wrong. And, despite the puffery from the Left, I think they got the message.

Food Thread: Haggis...The Other White(ish) Meat

friedmars.jpg

A Grace Before Dinner, Extempore

O thou who kindly dost provide
For every creature's want!
We bless Thee, God of Nature wide,
For all Thy goodness lent:
And if it please Thee, Heavenly Guide,
May never worse be sent;
But, whether granted, or denied,
Lord, bless us with content. Amen!
-- Robert Burns

If you think that Robert Burns Day is simply a vehicle for a discussion of Haggis, you would be mostly correct. And while it is Scotland's most famous dish, and one that is unfairly reviled, the Scots have a bit of a food tradition, and not just fried candy bars. And yes, I have had one or two, and they are every bit as good as one would imagine!

There is a recipe below the fold for "Cullen Skink," which is a marvelous smoked fish soup from Scotland. I have mentioned it before and I will undoubtedly mention it again, because it is easy and delicious.

It's easy to make fun of Scottish cuisine because so much of it seems so familiar to us, and that makes sense because a fair number of Americans can trace their lineage back to Scotland and England and Ireland, which share some culinary traditions, though not a common language.

But the English are doing wonderful things in their kitchens, and so are the Scots. Maybe not cutting edge stuff that, let's face it, nobody eats, but good quality traditional foods upgraded with some newer techniques and great quality ingredients.

Just take a stroll through a farmers market and you will see what I mean. It's happening here also (and has been for years)!

But back to Bobby Burns! Eat Haggis. Really. It's fantastic.

Gai Lan.jpg

There are all sorts of varieties of these greens, which are just one species (Brassica Oleracea). I had these on Christmas Day at the oldest Dim Sum parlor in NYC, and they were pretty tasty. So when I saw them in the market a few days ago I was heartened, but as you can see, they were not in the greatest shape, so I bought baby Bok Choi instead (same species!) and cooked them using the same simple technique. And all was right and good in Chez Dildo!

They cook very quickly, and can be flavored with pretty much whatever you feel like, and not necessarily in the Chinese style. I made them with olive oil and garlic, and next time I will try it with shallots or caramelized onion.

The most common of the varieties is of course broccoli, but I think that is the least interesting of them. Those tough thick stalks are just boring. Sure, peeling the stalks makes them better, but also adds a step to what should be an effortless dish.

This isn't some revelatory food that will change your life. It's a vegetable, which means it isn't bacon or steak, so how good can it be? But it is easy and tasty and pretty cheap and a bit different than our usual fare. So give it a shot.

No reason other than I haven't had a good burger in a long time, and this one looks sloppy and juicy and pretty good. I would gut the bun before eating it, but aside from that nit, it looks solid.

There are lots of recipes, so poke a round to find one you like. The smoked haddock is easy to make if you have a smoker or a smoke box for your grill, so don't buy it. Hell, you can use cod if necessary, and that is everywhere.

One of the many conceits of much of the professional food world is that simple cooking needs to be upgraded and modified (by them) to rise to the level of excellent. But that simply isn't so.
Corn Bread Casserole
There is nothing in this recipe that the greatest chefs in the world can get that you can't, and I'll bet that your supermarket frozen corn is better than all but the best high summer fresh corn.

This is good food, easy to make, has no expensive ingredients or weird techniques, everybody has the pan you need, so what's not to love?

19 With regard to the "hamburger", at some point, and I've think that picture reaches it, you've transitioned from a burger to meat loaf with some cheese on it. The bread is a doughy garnish.

Dug up an old cookbook that someone in my husband's family was going to toss out and finally took a good look at it.

Italian Gourmet Cooking by "Master Chef Pasquale Carpino whom I have never heard up but looked up. I guess he used to be on TV.

It's an interesting book. Some unique recipes, but also fairy easy recipes with mostly common ingredients. It's always fun to find new recipes. The book was published in 1980, quite a while ago.

It was one of my husband's great aunt's cookbook who had passed away years ago. The best part are all of the notes she made, and all of the inserts of recipes from newspaper clippings and handwritten recipes and notes stuffed inside it. A treasure.

50 Wanted to pass this along. I heard another chef talking about this on a video and found a link.

Sprinkling Seasonings from High Up

How high you hold your hand makes all the difference when it comes to seasoning.


https://tinyurl.com/yxyg7uf8

Ever notice that some chefs season food by sprinkling it from a good foot above the counter? Is this just kitchen theatrics, or is there a reason behind this practice? We sprinkled chicken breasts with ground black pepper from different heights--4 inches, 8 inches, and 12 inches--and found the higher the starting point, the more evenly the seasoning was distributed. And the more evenly the seasoning is distributed, the better food tastes.

some picts at the Cook's Illustrated link


Just a fun tidbit of info.

Here at Chez RMBS (aka The Fortress of Legal Solitude), I can report a perfect sous vide steak experiment last night. In fact, the hot water from my tap was hotter than the desired end temp, so I had to let it cool down before cooking. Go figure.

A beef tongue is curing in the fridge for a braised beef tongue and lentils next weekend.

And I checked out an amazing local butcher shop, recommended by a coworker, that carries everything from the normal stuff to alligator, wild boar roasts, whole goose, duck and pheasant, and a host of other hard to find items at incredibly good prices. This place will be a regular stop from now on.

137 The story's told that in merry olde England, a NHS inspector was checking out a hospital. Guided by a resident doctor, most of the wards seem okay.

With one ward to go, the doctor's pager goes off and the doctor prepares to run to an emergency. The inspector decides to proceed, and asks the doctor to join him as soon as is practical.

He enters this final ward, and things seem to be okay, but then one of the patients wanders up with a frown on his face and says "Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face, Great chieftain o the puddin'-race!" and then stalks away.

The inspector was a bit startled by this, but carries on checking the facilities until an equally grim looking chap wandered up and said "Wee, sleekit, cowrin, tim'rous beastie, O, what a pannic's in thy breastie!" and then he strode away.

Beginning to get worried, a third intense man walks up and says "The rank is but the guinea's stamp, The man's the gowd for a' that" so he turns for the door, just as the doctor arrived back.

"I thought we'd done the psychiatric wards" said the inspector.

"What do you mean? This is the serious Burns unit."

183 So I asked this earlier and got some useful feed back but would appreciate some more if anyone has any.

1.
So, question for the old'uns.

In the movie Holiday Inn there is a scene early in the movie where Bing Crosby goes into the dressing room of his fiance and notices that the hooks on the back of her dress are not hooked in the correct order and the hook at the top is unhooked. Soon thereafter Fred Astaire goes into her dressing room and notices the same thing about the hooks.

SPOILER ALERT

Is there something about the hooks that suggests that she is not committed or that she is romantically flighty since she dumps both Crosby and Astaire?

Thanks

*I deliberately avoided asking if it meant she was a slut or a whore because I kind of like the movie and did not want to get into that or what the modern day version would have had Crosby and Astaire doing to her in the dressing room.


2.
thanks for the info.

Not sure if you are familiar with the movie.

When Bing noticed he was engaged to the girl to be married that night or the next day.

Fred noticed, right after Bing when he, Fred went into the same girl's dressing room to discuss how she was dumping Bing that night to be with Fred.

Then about a year later she dumps Fred to run off with a Texan from Texas.

note: what made the Salmon Cakes extra-ordinary was the fresh Avocado-Orange relish that topped it. Fresh orange and avocado chunks with red onion, lime juice, jalapenos and cilantro. Wonderful and light.

A Tahini-Yogurt Sauce was drizzled over the Barley with Lentils and Mushrooms. Easy and so satisfying.

I live here, well here and in another state. Been here since 2016 so fairly recent. I was renting a house, but found a decent house that I bought. My house here is referred to has the frat house. Not the main home. Real estate has cooled off a little bit but is still strong. Around the time I bought if a decent house went on the market it would sell in 24 to 48 hours often above asking. Now not so crazy. There are decent places to live and some areas you really want to avoid. Where depends on where you are working and what you want to be close too. If you are going to be out north for work areas I would suggest would be other than what I would suggest if you are going to be more down town or to the south.

As my dad had passed in '92, he must have bought it in the late '80's. He was too sick to drink the last few years but he always bought it to make my mom's Manhattans. I never opened it but I gave it to son Leggy last year who told me it wouldn't have gone bad. I'll have to ask him if he ever opened it.

279 In honor of Terry Jones (and in keeping with the theme of this thread), here's the poem "Horace," which I believe appeared in "Monty Python's Big Red Book."

Much to his dad and mum's dismay
Horace ate himself one day
He didn't stop to say his grace
He just sat down and ate his face
"We can't have this!" his dad declared
"If that lad's ate he should be shared"
But even as he spoke they saw
Horace eating more and more:
First his legs and then his thighs,
His arms, his nose, his hair, his eyes
"Stop him, someone!" Mother cried
"Those eyeballs would be better fried!"
But all too late for they were gone,
And he had started on his dong...
"Oh foolish child!" the father mourned
"You could have deep-fried those with prawns,
Some parsley and some tartar sauce..."
But H was on his second course;
His liver and his lights and lung,
His ears, his neck, his chin, his tongue
"To think I raised him from the cot
And now he's gone to scoff the lot!"
His mother cried what shall we do?
What's left won't even make a stew..."
And as she wept her son was seen
To eat his head his heart his spleen
And there he lay, a boy no more
Just a stomach on the floor...
None the less since it was his
They ate it - and that's what haggis is.

281 The baking powder does something to the eggs, but I was advised not to do that. You want soft, moist, creamy curds, and the trick I was told was to make it a bit acid.

for perfect scrambled eggs, break two eggs into a bowl, add salt, pepper and a teaspoon of buttermilk. Mix it up good and it is ready to use.

There are two methods of cooking, one is to use a hot-hot griddle that you turn off before you dump the eggs in, and then work the eggs until they start to set, then cover to allow it to cook on the residual heat.
The other is to keep the temperature mild, and let the eggs cook long and slow, also covered.

Actually, the third method is to use water to mix the eggs, pull out a cold pan, put it on the burner, turn it on high, and then put the eggs into the still cold pan, bitch, and then watch as you get grey scrambled eggs that have BB sized curds. Then wonder why they always come out tough and unappealing.
That was an old girlfriend's patented technique. She got the same results every time.

Jen had about the best take on it in the thread downstairs.

I'm of a mixed mind. On the one hand, he was a brute 17 years ago, and handled the aftermath exceptionally poorly. On the other hand, it might not have risen to the level of a crime, and 17 years of not doing that again ought to mean something.

313 Found a nice 4-pound pork loin roast for $2 a pound this week. I'm trying Meathead Goldwyn's recipe that's a combo of sous vide and smoking.

Season the loin well. Sous vide at 140 for 4 hours. Chill down well. (I'm planning to refrigerate mine overnight.)

Then smoke at 325 degrees until it reaches an internal temp of 120. Idea is to cook it fully in the sous vide and then reheat and flavor it with the smoker.

Sounds appealing. I'll report back on results.

364 thinking about this ... a fluffy omelet is basically a 'crude' souffle.
I would whip up the whites to some degree to entrain air then in pan with a lipid of choice, combine yolks and whites and see what happens.

385 Easy Bean Dip for Super Bowl parties or anytime:

One 15 oz can Refried Black Beans (black beans are a must)
One 16 oz jar of your favorite salsa (I like smoked jalapeno or smoked chipotle )

Mix the beans with one-half up to the full jar of salsa, per your taste. Heat in microwave of small crock pot. Top each portion with chopped onions, shredded cheese, sliced jalapenos, or nothing, as you like.

412 Made a batch of Jezebel Sauce this week; it's a blend of apple jelly, pineapple preserves, dry mustard, and horseradish (lots of recipes on the web). I've had it at parties poured over a block of cream cheese and served with unseasoned crackers. But while searching pork loin recipes awhile back, someone suggested the Jezebel would pair nicely.

Anyway, as is typical, our youngest son rolled his eyes when he saw the dipping bowls next to everyone's dinner plates. And, in an attempt to jerk my chain, he ate half his sliced pork before giving the Jezebel a try. After one taste, though, he admitted liking it and even asked if he could take some home -- said he wanted to try basting it on grilled ham slices.

He and I have been playing this game for years, and it never grows old!

I use olive oil on everything. I even fried some wings in it. you have to regulate the temperature but it is no big thing.

I will go with canola if it requires high heat and I want to save a buck. I guess peanut oil is the standard for serious frying.

I have messed around with lard and coconut oil but they didn't do it for me. For sure lard makes the best pies but that is beyond my skill level.

The same look an old locomotive has, that blue black shine. I made little quiches in it and they were great although awfully small. I have to eat two at a time. Tried cornbread last night and it stuck, I guess I didn't get the pan hot enough with the grease before filling the wedges. I'm still practicing!

Was out of electronic connection and just found out about Kobe Bryant.

First, real facts, not ABC News bullshit.
First call came into 911 at 9:47 am LA time. The fog was extremely thick. The pilot crashed into the side of the mountain, all died, and a quarter acre brush fire started.

There were nine souls on the helicopter, according to the LA Sheriff's office. Rumors are that Kobe, his 13 year old daughter, a friend of hers and a parent of that friend, were on board. Others unknown at this time.
He was on the way to a 7th and 8th grade bb tournament that his daughter was in, and he coached.


I used to be a true sports fanatic. Still follow some sports, but not like before contracts and politics became more important than statistics and wins.

When the NBA was politically stolen from Seattle, I gave up on that league. In the 12 years since, I don't miss it even a little bit, because the game is mostly one-on-one dunks and very little teamwork. But as a Sonics fan, the Lakers were in our division and so Kobe was a part of the news cycle a lot.

Kobe was certainly not a perfect person, nobody is. But he was one of the good ones. He didn't have to, but he helped a lot of younger people get involved with positive activities, during his career and especially after he retired.

He Paid it Forward a lot. He was an incredible roll model for young urban boys, something sorely lacking these days. He was the opposite of those negative stories we see these days about pro sports players.

Kobe won an Oscar as well as 5 NBA Championships.

I hate the NBA with a passion, but this Sonics fan will miss Kobe. Kobe Bryant was a lot more than a great NBA player. He was a good guy and a good citizen.

I've never seen it either.

Around the time the movie came out, I and 3 friends had gone annually to fish in Canada for Brook Trout.

The 3rd year, 2 brothers joined us, and they were quickly named "The Hansens".

The 1st day, they flipped their boat, and almost crashed into other boats.

Of course, we drank beer. But those guys got drunk, and I mean DRUNK the first day. We went in to wash up for supper, and the one brother went to sleep on his bunk with his coat and boots on. Someone remarked on that and someone else said "He wants to be ready to fish in the morning", which sent us into convulsive laughter. The other brother, who at least had taken off his coat and boots, opened one eye and said drunkenly and slowly "Quit pickin' on my brother".

Any mention of the Hansen Brothers brings back memories of that trip.

635 My dad took a photo of my then 3-year-old brother with Bobby Hull, and
brother was wearing his gloves and holding his stick. 18 years later,
Dad showed Bobby a picture of brother in current day and got that photo
personally autographed.

Oh man. That's stuff to be passed down in the family. Nice.

639 most Texans make chili con queso at home with
Velveeta. If you think you are too suave go ahead with a mixture of
farmhouse cheddar from Yorkshire, some Swiss from the alps, and maybe a
gruyere. But if the cheese seizes up and is chalky, don't blame me.

656 San Antonio Chili Queens (circ. 1936 and going back several hundred years) were some tough women.

Generally the never used tomatos and beans were always in another bowl.

Chilies, onion and some seasonings and suet were used. Pork chunks often rounded out the beef.

On a trail drive i can see why beans were plenty and you looked hard for the meat.

659 I'm watching a documentary called Sheep Among Wolves. It claims the fastest growing Christian church in the world. It also claims mosques in Iran are empty and Iran's leadership are Muslim because that's where the wealth and the power are.
Interesting so far.
I can't know the truth of this but it confirms for me the absolute idiocy of the media in their grieving the death of Salami.
The movie also claims Iranian Christians are strongly pro Israel and Judaism.

CoronaVirus: A Shep Smith Special Report

WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE! RUN AWAY!

The breathless reporting from pretty much every source, with the exception of Michael Fumento in the NY Post is typical of the no-nothings in the media and their tenuous relationship with logic and the Scientific Method and pesky little things like data and numbers and statistics.

And the facts are very, very thin. We don't know much other than what the Chinese government is telling the world, and I believe them about as much as I believe that Epstein killed himself. Maybe it's worse than they are reporting. Maybe it is overblown to deflect attention from other things in China, like Hong Kong! And maybe it is just like most of the other diseases that emerge from China and then fizzle in developed countries because we are healthier, cleaner, have better medical care and more efficient ways to get that care to the people who need it.

I have no idea how this will shake out. Is it the next pandemic, with hundreds of millions dead? Maybe, but I doubt it. Is it the next SARS? Probably. And how many Americans died of SARS? From the CDC:

In the United States, only eight persons were laboratory-confirmed as SARS cases. There were no SARS-related deaths in the United States. All of the eight persons with laboratory-confirmed SARS had traveled to areas where SARS-CoV transmission was occurring.
For all of American medicine's faults, we do a pretty good job of minimizing the severity of things like the flu and TB and Measles and Pertusis and all sorts of diseases that are major killers in other parts of the world. Will I take a trip to Wuhan? hell no. But until there is evidence of this virus being a significant health threat in the developed world I will not worry too much.

Does this new virus scare make you pause or prevent you from getting local Chinese food?
