34 I think OM has used a few Hockney paintings for the Chess Thread. What I find interesting is that he uses contemporary dress -- like most of the 'Old Masters' and has an interesting way with faces.

Perspective on this one seems just a little off, but interesting setting.

59 grammie, I saw your comment about being conflicted about the guys kneeling in prayer during the anthem (if that's really what they were doing).

Now of course you know I have no problem with teams praying before a game, and as others said, it's really about the timing.

Think of it this way: kneeling in prayer during the national anthem is like starting to sing the anthem while everyone else is praying. Both are noble things, but let's not have them going on concurrently.

And of course, I haven't read the story and I assume they were covering for the Kaeperniks on the team and if I'm wrong, hey, it's the Moron way!

Demographics, for one. Where do most MDs live and practice? That will tell you their political orientation. So most see some form of socialised medicine as inevitable, and in fact you already had it before Obamacare came along. Obamacare itself is a clusterfuck, but now its a matter of what will replace it, and aside from political orientation, you really do not want to piss the wrong institutions (financial, governmental) off. So most stay relatively quiet. Plus most MDs don't like mixing it up in electoral politics: it has been the career graveyard of many practices. There are exceptions, but they aren't that common.

I haven't done much primary care for a while, but I cn't say I'm keen on the questionnaire approach. I will say that Paediatricians are trained to be a bit nosy.

How about these people stop attempting to predict (really, influence) the future and they just do their d@mn jobs? Trump is president right now and he's making you look like a slacker/traitor for doing nothing of value after the citizens gave your GOP the House, the Senate and the WH.

They're so gung ho for what they call anarcho communism (an oxymoron if I ever heard one), well let them demonstrate to the rest of us just how well that all works.

Those (mostly) dudes from mom's basement can divvy up the work; some can plow and plant; some can work on construction and some can walk around with their iPhones brought in from the bourgeoisie land of mom and pop and walk around and try to get a wifi signal.

Hell, make it a reality show. It would get the highest ratings ever. BUT, no cheating, no food brought in except for a 1 yr starter pack. Let's see how long the 'share the world and beat up perceived fascists' philosophy works.

Certainly we need better Senators than Collins, but that isn't exactly what she said. She was asked whether she would support Trump's re-election, she answered she did not in 2016 which was a difficult decision for her, and that she would have to see about 2020. I take that as a net positive as she did not support him in 2016 so either she is actually thinking about maybe possibly supporting him in 2020 or she needs to assure her voters that she hasn't categorically ruled it out.

Then the newsie pressed her on whether he would be the nominee and she said we don't know yet. Which, we don't actually know yet. But of course a good partisan would say yes I fully expect that blah blah blah, but this is Susan Collins.

It's Cleveland. It's a shit hole. It's quickly morphing into an Islamo-Hispanic-Welfarite Hellhole, overlorded by professional semi-wealthy white liberals who live in Shaker Heights/Cleveland Heights (their coveted little eastside suburbs that are two streets over from the ghetto. But the white liberals who live there pride themselves on being "down with the struggle.") I can tell you, the main drag from which my street feeds off of, there is nary a sign in English anywhere and I am not joking. It is for all intents and purposes, a foreign country. The people you see all look like they were pulled right out of a National Geographic special on all the third-world shitholes in the world.

The players may think this is a good idea, but the coach said last week he had a zero tolerance policy for this shit. We shall see what happens. I can tell you, it's not going to go over well with the underlying fanbase who is not urban at all and predominately white and predominately Trump voters (Lorain County, Geauga County, Lake County, Ashtabula County).

233 I drove 1,300 miles round trip yesterday through the heart of America to see the eclipse.

There will be no widespread civil war no matter how far America falls--it's just too big, too open, there is too much "out here."

The headlines are solely a function of the fact that the news entities are concentrated in the large cities.

And their reporting serves one purpose and one purpose only--they want you to clean up their shit.

Baby shit his diaper, but it's not your child--it's theirs.

They can't even muster the manpower to maintain what they already have--they need you.

Now they're calling anyone who doesn't want to clean the shit off of their baby a racist.
And the GOPe is running to the ready with a handful of wet-wipes.

The first stage of Irish Democracy is, "that's not my fucking problem anymore--that's yours."

You don't vote for Trump if you still think racism/sexism/bigotry is the biggest problem America needs to focus on.

As I've said, the Dem/Media/GOPe/Deep State Alliance is winning the media war right now--but they are hemorrhaging massive amounts of lifeblood everywhere else:
Voters--the people.

As the military is fond of saying, "The enemy gets a vote too."

And when you're outnumbered a thousand, ten thousand, a million to 1--you ought to carefully consider who you label your enemy.

259 I checked out the Facebook and Twitter pages for the Marcus Lemonis remarks about Charlottesville.

This guy is great a business but a total failure at explaining what is going on. Originally, he said on CNBC that "if you're OK with what Trump said, don't shop in my businesses".

After realizing what an incredible fuck up that was, alienating every RV and camping customer in the country, he tried to backpedal with the "if you're ok with hate and violence, don't shop in my businesses".

That didn't work too well either, because he's still trying to explain it.

For some reason, he's stuck on lumping "hate" in with free speech. He says he's all for free speech but that "hate speech" is just wrong.

So does that mean he's ok with giving the antifa the green light to pound people who say things that liberals don't like?

You can't be for free speech unless you're willing to defend the worst kind of speech.

Marcus is trying to straddle the fence with this "I'm against violence and hate speech" shit, so he's going to lose a lot of support and customers.

And if the economy keeps improving they will also be calling him "Mr. President, again, in November of 2020.

By the way - while on vacation in Canada I came up with Trump's re-election campaign slogan (those on here might recall my first campaign slogan: "Trump 2016. Because fuck you, that's why"). The 2020 caqmpaig slogan shall be:
*Drum roll please*
Trump 2020. Because DC didn't fucking listen the first time.

I checked out the Facebook and Twitter pages for the Marcus Lemonis remarks about Charlottesville.



This guy is great a business but a total failure at explaining what
is going on. Originally, he said on CNBC that "if you're OK with what
Trump said, don't shop in my businesses".



After realizing what an incredible fuck up that was, alienating
every RV and camping customer in the country, he tried to backpedal with
the "if you're ok with hate and violence, don't shop in my businesses".



That didn't work too well either, because he's still trying to explain it.



For some reason, he's stuck on lumping "hate" in with free speech.
He says he's all for free speech but that "hate speech" is just wrong.



So does that mean he's ok with giving the antifa the green light to pound people who say things that liberals don't like?



You can't be for free speech unless you're willing to defend the worst kind of speech.



Marcus is trying to straddle the fence with this "I'm against
violence and hate speech" shit, so he's going to lose a lot of support
and customers.

The Morning Report 8/22/17

PDTafghan.jpg

Good morning kids. The President made his first address in his capacity as commander-in-chief to the nation last night, specifically about the situation in Afghanistan. After eight years of complete cluster-f***ery under Dubya and then a further eight years of having the commader-in-chief aiding and abetting the enemy, frankly I don't see the point of wasting any more American blood and treasure. The way you win wars is to inflict the most massive amount of pain, death and destruction upon the enemy until he cries uncle. In this case we are not necessarily dealing with a nation-state but an annihilationist ideology. To my way of thinking, you have to kill and kill massively, occupy territory, institute martial law, dismantle the mosques and madrases and "denazify" the country by controlling how Islam is practiced and preached and forcibly introduce Judeo-Christianity over a period of perhaps decades. Obviously that ain't gonna happen.

While it cannot be denied that Afghanistan is a breeding ground and launch pad for Islamist terrorism, the wave of attacks we have witnessed in the west over the past several years were carried out by citizens and/or recent immigrants to the individual nations themselves. Us included. Still, there needs be some sort of stability in that region. On the plus side, PDT is not going to micromanage the war and will let the generals do the fighting, hopefully with very loose rules of engagement. He also took aim at a huge terrorist enabler; Pakistan. And that has got to also be a shot at the Chi-Coms who are their biggest ally in the region. Still, the fact that very questionable people such as Lindsay Grahamaphrodite are in favor of this and that the plan was cooked up by H.R. McMustard, someone who is perhaps an Obama embed, I'm not exactly jumping for joy here. I hope PDT's instincts are right. His precedency is on the line as well as the lives of American soldiers in the field. G-d protect him.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

58 Last night while President DTS was speaking I was reading Red Blood, Black Sand; a book written by an Iwo Jima vet. It struck me how those guys were primed to win whereas for the last decade or so we've been primed to just look like we don't want to offend anybody. What I got from PDTS's speech was that the ROE were removed and the military was being cut loose to do what they do best: kill the enemy. That alone should make a substantial difference.

There is so much treachery over there, and so many tribal allegiances that cross the easily defined lines. The strategy the war room (hopefully) has is probably more complicated and covert than could ever be conveyed in an easy "white hat black hat" narrative.

We should start by taking on China in their stealing our data on a million or more DC personnel, or all the intellectual property they routinely steal, and all that stolen property resold even back into America. But we have (at least) half of congress that are more loyal to globalism than Americanism (which in the end makes them traitors, a Soros/CFR Cartel).

We need the anti-DeepState, supposedly 95% loyal workers behind the scenes in DC to stand up to the crime wave. Ima thinkin' there may really not be that many true blue folks in the DC bureaucracy. That's why we have to start convicting the IRS types that perverted our election, or the Gruber types that clean up by over-billing, and the DWS/Podesta types that hire foreigners and sell US out.

Slowing the corruption for eight years is not nearly enough. We have domestic enemies much greater than the terrorists. The art of "dealing" with them is to convict them, not go down the compromise road.

66 I think, when we make a new political party to kill the GOP, we should ditch all of our pre-existing labels. Not the ideas. We just need to be sneaky about the re-branding.

We should call ourselves a center-left classical liberal movement. According to the old French definition, just about everything that wasn't a Monarchist was left, and we're not Monarchists, so that's technically true. Classical liberals were people like the Founding Fathers, who believed in limited government, natural rights, and the rule of law.

It's technically true, and distancing ourselves from the conservative and republican labels would make it harder for the Left to slime us with their usual blood libels. They'd have to think up all-new ones, and the cognitive dissonance would cause people to question whether left or right still had any meaning, as well as what the modern-day liberal is, since he's clearly not any kind of liberal anymore...

Posted by: Ripley

Group physicians usually have huge overheads built into the semi-partnerships and try to cope by increasing volume, decreasing medicaid patients or restructuring how many physicians are in the practice. They want to keep working. It's a geographical thing too because in some areas there are almost no doctors left because they've moved to big urban areas. In some States there are few if any docs still practicing in formerly common specialties because they are sick of it and retire early. Your instinct is actually right: In a few more years there are only going to be nurse practitioners and weird new prescribers formerly barred from serious clinical medicine.

Cops showed up after several noise complaints about the rager, where party-goers were also lighting off fireworks. Officers asked them to keep it down, but they refused, so police cuffed them, according to CapeCod.com.

76 " are their still actual humans doing 24/7 watches or is it all technologically monitored? "

Human manning has been whittled away, year after year, in an effort to save money on the human paycheck/benefits/retirement cost equation.

There used to be a real science behind how many Sailors of each flavor were required for everything from peacetime to full blown warfare.

And a Navy instruction listing the maximum amount of work time each Sailor would be expected to do per day, with rest/sleep time in between. Not as a law with no exception, but as a baseline for manning requirement computations.

This was been thrown out the window, as it prevented the march to minimal manning.


The hatred for the Little Crappy Ship (LCS) class of war fighting vessel is largely based upon the lack of crew size, redundancy and damage survivability of the ship under the new manning and construction paradigm.

The narcotic problem was the reason that the old USSR invaded Afghanistan. But of course, in idiotic spy vs spy fashion we undercut them.

Then we 'broke it' and now we bought it. Perhaps we can work with the Russians together for a change. Cutting off the heroin supply to their country is in their self interest, too.

It's just so temporary-sounding and "ad hoc." If The Reform Party was successful, they would presumably reform everything they wanted to reform. And then what? Does the party disband, having achieved their reformations, or do they manufacture new things that need reforming?

I bet Mattis had a hell of a lot more input on the plan than McMaster since it's his job. It wasn't that long ago that Mattis was in front of the Senate telling McCain that he knew we were not winning in Afghanistan and that it was his responsibility to come up with a plan to fix that.

I never believed Trump on the campaign trail when he said we would be pulling out. That would have been incredibly stupid and as he said last night the world looks a little different when you are sitting in the big chair.

We have the best, smartest most capable military in the history of the world. Let them do their jobs the way they want to do it and give them the tools to be successful and I think we will see a completely different situation. And that includes finally taking it to Pakistan.

We don't need to turn Afghanistan into anything other than a place where people will never dream of hitting America again because the cost will be way to high.

It can absolutely be done. I bet every one of us in this room, as a mental exercise, can quickly think of several conservative policies you could market to a lib. Bernie Sanders' general position on trade was very close to Trump's, for example. Trump exploited this during the campaign and peeled off a few Bernie-bros. He won on those kinds of slim but significant margins. It's a marketing lesson a new party could learn from.

I think we're watching a mass deprogramming in process, nationwide. It'll take time to see the results, and a couple decades to fix the societal damage. What the left has done we can undo. We outnumber them, we're smarter than them, and our policies actually work.

I think a lot more Dems are mushy than you think. The Dems whip their people into a frenzy and depend on intimidation to keep them in line. That's why they cling so desperately to the media and are so easily baited into responding to Trump's narratives. They know if they lose control for even a short time they suffer serious damage.

I have spent a lot of time in England and so have done a lot of reading on NHS. At the time of its implementation, the first problem was brain drain. Many good or great doctors were packing up and moving to a country where they would be rewarded for hard work.

The mediocre and below average doctors were happy to get a guaranteed wage for less work. They didn't have to work to get new patients, the government sent them a quota. Patients did not get input on which doctor they wanted.

What about Trump or Mattis have you learned that would in any way make you believe that he is just sending more or our troops to be killed for the sake of seeing them die? Nothing, that's what.

Trump has been quite clear about one thing, he is not going to follow the idiotic policy of announcing to our enemies the details of his plans. And he is the first president to actually name one of the sources of the problems we have been having in Afghanistan, Pakistan. Pakistan has been a safe haven for fighters to launch attacks on US troops and then a place for them to run and hide. Stopping that will go a long way toward making Afghanistan more manageable.

Leaving Afghanistan to once again become a haven for terrorists was never a real option. What needs to be done is to once and for all finish what was started 16 years ago and that means pacifying that region to a point it is no longer a threat to us.

So far, Trump did not cause WWIII by bombing the shit out of Syria, helping drive ISIS out of their safe havens in Iraq and stuffing that fat, psychotic midget in North Korea back in his hole. I think he has earned a little leeway on this decision and I'm willing to see what he does before the shrieking and hand wringing.

Invite people here to move there. Give them a guaranteed income, let them change their lives and decrease the surplus population here. Keep increasing the size of the colony as it needs land. Allow Afghans who want to live the American life to join the colony and assimilate to our ways.

I don't have a problem with prayer during the game, either. When you're a lineman at the bottom of a pile after a running play, and you reach over and break an opposing lineman's finger, and he yells, and you pray to Crom and give the man's agony to Crom, Crom is likely pleased.

320 Having done a bunch of volunteer work with the guys coming back from both Afghanistan and Iraq and having listened to what they have told me - what's required in Afghanistan is a "local first" type strategy. Teaming up with village leaders and getting them to shun the Taliban when they come calling instead of opening their doors out of fear.

Maybe that is what this strategy is focused on, maybe not. The fact of the matter is that we're not going to outlast the Taliban, we just have to put in place a culture that shuns it as the fringe element of their society.

340 It's interesting that this NFL prayer circle is getting such wide publicity. Media goes out of its way to avoid coverage of other players who pray before games.

I attended one Alabama game last year. About a dozen players knelt and prayed at the goal line before the game. I asked some season ticket holders about it and they said this has been done at every game for several years.

Have you ever seen that on TV?

That was only the initial push because they sent reservists from adjacent Soviet republics. After that, they deliberately limited Muslims in units.

All this talk about slavery these days is ironic, since the left would like to effectively enslave us all to government - they want us to work to pay for government, then have government make all our decisions - tell us what to think, where to life, how to live, etc.

Largely what we've been doing for a while. The bigger element of Trump's speech I thought was the acknowledgement to stop trying to rebuild societies in our image. In Afghanistan this means dropping women's rights and other issues. Kabul and J-bad may return to being nice places for women, but the rest of the country forget it.

I hadn't seen her there since before Christmas until last week. Turns out she was in a bad car accident & was in physical therapy for months. I asked for her number & she gave it to me & told me to text her so she could have mine. I texted her later that night, we had some chit-chat back & forth, and she asked me if I was seeing anyone. I replied no, and she relied "The most gorgeous guy I know? You need someone special like you" I thanked her a lot. A bit later she says she's home alone, her son is at the movies. I replied that it's too bad it's late (after 9 on Sunday) else we could get a coffee or something. She replied "Yeah." I replied "When are you free again?" She hasn't replied since.

388 You're proposed "ideal" solution for Afghanistan wouldn't work, since it relies on re-educating the people who are there.

The only plan that could "work" would be one we could never do, the plan the Roman's instituted in Israel/Palestine after the Bar Kochba revolt ended in 136. What they did was to kill *everyone* in the country who wasn't able to flee, and burn down every city, every house, every farm. Then they moved their own people in (or friendlies who were sympathetic to them) over the course of the next 100 years, and built a bunch of new towns from scratch, on top of the ruins of the old ones.

Harsh, but it's probably the only time there has been an extended peace in the middle east - lasted over 500 years.

Did you enjoy today's solar eclipse? RACIST

The Atlantic’s very lengthy essay on the failure of the eclipse to occur where a sufficient number of black people reside is entitled “American Blackout.” It clocks in at a remarkable 4,544 words and does not appear to be satire.

Concerning “the Great American Eclipse,” Brooklyn Law School professor Alice Ristroph writes in the rapidly deteriorating magazine, “there live almost no black people” “along most of its path.”

The Atlantic’s longwinded law professor assures readers that “implicit bias of the solar system” is “presumably” not the cause of eclipse’s failure to affect enough black people.

“Still, an eclipse chaser is always tempted to believe that the skies are relaying a message.”

Dammit!!!! Not so fast. 2016 may not the hottest year in history.

After record heat in the first quarter of 2016, something interesting began occurring, not reported in the press. Temperatures trended downwards sharply in the months of April, May and June of 2016. And most importantly the sharp downward trend contradicted the more typical tendency (at least for 2013, 2014, and 2015) to show no particular trend. The last six months on 2016 showed some above-average warming, but of a seasonal nature.

It is about time that the Left begin taking down other racist statues and art work.

As long as the Left is determined to tear down historic symbols of racism, I say we help them out and point them toward some statues and portraits of real racist scumbags. The country has any number of former Democrat racist “worthies” that will fit the bill quite nicely.

A hat tip here to the actor James Woods for suggesting that we tear down a statue of the late Democratic Senator Robert Byrd. Seems to me that Byrd, who was once an “Exalted Cyclops” in the Ku Klux Klan (a position that the reviled Robert E. Lee never dreamed of holding) is a prime candidate for black racists to scrub from history. Byrd, the so-called “Conscience of the Senate” once filibustered for 14 hours against civil rights for blacks. Why aren’t blacks demanding that statues honoring him be removed?

The building trades have a shortage of workers.

Whether it was due to pervasive drug abuse, or for some other reason, but fast forward two weeks when in response to a special question in the July NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI) survey, US homebuilders said that labor and subcontractor shortages have become even more widespread in July of 2017 than they were in June of 2016.

This is a concern as the inventory of for-sale homes recently struck a 20-year low. And while economists and the public cry for more inventory, many builders are pressed to meet demand. A labor and subcontractor shortage in the building industry has worsened over the past year, according to the National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index survey of single-family builders.

More dire than Global Warming? Fatbergs!

First, someone might pour molten turkey fat down a drain. A few blocks away, someone else might flush a wet wipe down a toilet. When the two meet in a dank sewer pipe, a baby fatberg is born.

Eventually, more fat, oil, and grease congeal onto the mess and build up into giant stinking globs. When they get big enough, fatbergs can clog sewers entirely, sending raw sewage gushing into streets. By the time a 15-ton monstrosity was pulled from the sewers of London’s Kingston borough in 2013, many of the neighborhood’s toilets had backed up.

Fatbergs are a sewer scourge, and both the nasty blobs and the fights against them have been growing. London, Belfast, Denver, and Melbourne are just a few of the world metropolises that have discovered large fatbergs in recent years.

Spending money like there is no tomorrow, Maine's technology push is a bust.

The Maine Learning Technology Initiative was one of the earliest and largest efforts to bridge that divide. Starting in 2002, it provided a laptop to every seventh and eighth grade student in Maine. It now distributes about 66,000 devices annually, including some to teachers, at a total cost of about $11.5 million per year.
But that investment hasn’t provided clear returns. According to NPR, the state’s standardized test scores have not increased in the 15 years since the program started, and state leadership is beginning to reconsider the initiative.

If spending money on the Head Start program doesn't work why would this? Let's throw others money down the drain so we feel good about ourselves. To hell with the results. Intentions are what matter.

It was bad enough you caused Daddy to drink. Now you are causing the homosexuals to drink.

“Alcohol has played a central role for SGM by facilitating exploration of sexuality and gender, coping with minority stress, trauma, and stigma and serving as an integral component of bars and clubs for SGM young adults,” the grant states. “Given this central role, it is not surprising that problematic alcohol use, including heavy episodic drinking (HED) and intoxication, and alcohol-related problems are significant issues for SGM young adults.”
The bottom line theory is that gays, lesbians and transgendered do not have any responsibility for drinking or getting drunk. Instead blame society and others, hence they do nothing wrong. This is really about people refusing to take responsibility for their own actions. Like the Pelosi’s of the world blaming the NRA for gun violence, instead of asking why hundreds, mostly blacks killed by blacks, are being murdered in Chicago each year.

Former Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa told MSNBC's Hugh Hewitt Sunday that he's not worried Harris will be his primary competition in the 2018 California gubernatorial race because she's ramping up her operation in the early primary states, and plans to be knocking doors in Iowa sometime early next year:

Alas, I had a few issues coming up here:

1) My first coffee sprung a leak before I was even out of the Dallas 'burbs. Had to stop, clean up and get another;

2) Leaky tires (2);

3) Got back on the freeway in Illinois after closing my eyes for half an hour and promptly got my windshield cracked by a rock. Not too happy about that one;

4) Phone took a crap while here and so had to get a new one;

5) Ended up having to get TWO new tires to replace the leaky ones.

Hopefully going home will be uneventful.

Posted by: original jake at August 21, 2017 10:37 PM (NBNBl)

True. There's no such thing as a shortage of labor, only a shortage of labor willing to work for the wage that is being paid. Raise wages and see the labor come out of the woodwork. Start enforcing immigration laws and see people come off the dole. Especially 40- and 50-year old one swho have been "disabled" since about 2009-10 or so, when their unemployment ran out.

Why do you build me up (build me up) Buttercup, baby
Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around
And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby
When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still
I need you (I need you) more than anyone, darlin'
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) Buttercup, don't break my heart

Gary called me up Sunday and asked if I'd mind if his wife started us up a simple f-book page.
Lots of folks asking him how they can find out when we're playing and how to get ahold of us for private bookings.
He knows my opinion on that place and zucker.

I said sure, go ahead.
I'll let you know how to find it when up.

Also wanted to do business cards.
Call teej for bookings.
Sure. Why not.

Humblebrag: I know Mat Kaplan, who was on their coverage and who hosts the show "Constellation Radio", I believe on NPR. I won't say we're best buds but I know who he is, and he knows who I am. :-)

Long story, but when I was a teenager in 1982, he was one of the people who first made me really interested in radio and video production (and which led to my current interest in screenwriting and film production).

I'm not saying that Trump is gaming us; I'm saying that in many cases, that Trump is gaming the Democrats and the MSM by what he seems to say.

My suspicion is that although there have been bumps in the road, Trump has a 4d chess model that he's working on that we can't imagine.

Also... I don't know of any other president that has been treated as badly as he has by the MSM, RINOs, Democrats and the Americans who did not vote for him. If, by some strange twist of fate, Jeb/Rubio/Cruz were elected President, I think all of them would have resigned by now.

Posted by: Cicero (@cicero) at August 21, 2017 11:08 PM (c8EhQ)

215 I wonder if the current obsession with this year is the hottest year in history (by which they mean the temperature record, not earths, or even human, and only if you apply adjustments which make the past 2 degrees colder than the present vs the actual measures we've actually made) would wane if we pointed out how human centric their observations actually are. I mean, personally, I want the world's temperatures to be ideal for humanity, whatever that ideal actually is, but for them, wouldn't it be a tremendous black mark to favor a time when the temperatures favored man? I mean, there were definitely warmer centuries. There were times we didn't for the most part even have ice caps. There was also a time when Chicago and Detroit were both under a mile or so of ice. (known as the time of great awesomeness when the northern blight centuries were too cold to live, well okay, before they existed, but still.) But they're human centric. Rather, if the right doesn't want to do anything about climate change, a better way of putting it is that the right doesn't want to change the climate. The left on the other hand envisions giant artificial trees, adding vast amounts of particulate matter to the atmosphere, painting the poles. All in an attempt to PREVENT THE CLIMATE FROM EVER CHANGING. They point to us like monsters, but they want to take on untried geoengineering projects that would cost half the wealth of humanity on flawed information.

Anyway. Point out to the libs their human-centerism. They'll hate you for it. At least, the ones who really CARE about global warming will.

That's a recruitment technique. Assuming they have something that matches the schedule availability marked on the card, the recruiter will call the person, talk things over, and schedule a time for them to dome in and fill out and app and have an in person interview.

277 I spent part of the afternoon ripping out the flooring in my bathroom.

Yay! Subfloor is rotten but maybe the joists are OK!

I suspect a leak in the drain has been the culprit here, hurried along by a washing-machine flood.

If you ever have to get a linoleum floor up in a hurry and don't worry about the first level of floor, use a skill saw set a less than 3/4" and a hefty shovel to pry with.

Had that puppy down to the sub-floor and the debris in the dumpster in 30 minutes.

Maybe I can get tile to replace it, that would be fine. And water proof.

There's lots of blogs I go to where folks communicate only in passing, but here it seems like everyone really is a family. I certainly don't know of any others where the commenters jump in their cars and drive a few hundred miles for meetups in real life. As long as you guys are around, I see a bright future for the blog. Thanks to you and Ace for all you do.

299 Saw the total eclipse today in Steeleville IL, about 40 mi SE of St Louis. We stopped at the local library and saw it with the library staff and about half a dozen others who happened by... absolutely awesome!! Clouds stayed well north of us so we got the full show.

Our only complaint was that totality was so short (2 mins 21 secs where we were)... so we're already looking forward to the next one in 2024 which will be twice as long (4+ minutes) and cross roughly the same area.

301 @ Peaches. Break out a map, and look up the Broad Ripple suburb of Indianapolis.

Firstly. It's a quaint, twee little restaurantville. Very scenic, eclectic, fulla good eateries n' breweries.

And, the home-base of one Tamara Keel, shooter, student-of-great-trainers and proficient and prolific gunwriter.

So much so, that she's the Handgun Editor for the NRA monthly "Shooting Illustrated", and contributor to several others.

Not too shabby for a girl in retail gun sales, who started a blog a dozen or so years back.

Get settled in, and I'll make some calls to some people who know some people. You'll soon be training with some of the very best.

I'm working a similar "intro" for an 'ette to train with some pros up in the Detroit area, and am just waiting for one of 'em to return from his latest, and final deployment.

Between all of us "shooters" here at Ace, I think we can connect damn near any one, damn near any where, with quality instruction, training and practice.

And speaking for the shooters, I would say that we're all damned happy to do so, withal.

Information about Ristroph (the author of the Atlantic article about the path (????) of the eclipse today) is
particularly hilarious reading.

Check out the reviews posted by her students at http://www.ratemyprofessors.com/ShowRatings.jsp?tid=1227525

One needs to read carefully between the lines to comprehend just how vicious is the stuff from students.

Interesting to compare the student's views with the long list of "credentials" put forth by her employers:
https://www.brooklaw.edu/faculty/directory/facultymember/biography?id=alice.ristroph

It is these "law schools" who deliberately sell these "Professors" to students, at a very high prices. It seems that the students' don't feel they got their money's worth.

Depends on how they are going to distribute it.

If they go the route of shopping networks and religious channels and PAY the cablecos/satellitepros to carry the station, they will get 100% coverage.

If they go the route of just offering it to cablecos/satellitepros for free, they will get close to universal carriage.

If they go the route of wanting X$ per subscriber like FNC, MSNBC, and CNN, they will have a very hard time getting carriage.

Or, they can just go the streaming route which HBO, ESPN, and WWE are all doing or planning on doing. Usually that will charge subscribers about $10 a month.

Belt sander. 50 grit abrasive.

Full EPA HazMat suit, positive air-pressure respirator, bio-chem decontamination isolation and washdown, after.

And a lasting, enduring shame to fuel the PTSD of having "been there, done that", every time you cash that paycheck.

Could maybe also apply to some tattoo removal jobs too, come to think about it.

But, just the other year, I broke down and tasted some again, and darned if I didn't like it. Your taste does indeed change.

I think young children are very sensitive to certain tastes that just overwhelm everything else. But that abates with age, and you can enjoy stuff that would blow your head off as a child.

But, just the other year, I broke down and tasted some again, and darned if I didn't like it. Your taste does indeed change.

I think young children are very sensitive to certain tastes that just overwhelm everything else. But that abates with age, and you can enjoy stuff that would blow your head off as a child.

432 Last night, Illiniwek suggested they go plain open, free network. I agree. so many people have cut the cable cord. many can't afford it, including me. I watch TV on the net, and would love to be able to buy an old TV and get Bannon's network along with the networks.

376 Perhaps Bannon should look into developing a news network with the Sinclair TV stations.
Posted by: Captain Whitebread at August 22, 2017 12:01 AM (rJUlF)


Best bet is to go with a streaming service at the beginning. Easier to set up, don't have to drop a lot of coin on satellite transponder space and uplink services, and can put the studios wherever they want to (cheap rent). They can then contract with BAMTech (MLB's streaming company) to run the streaming technology.

Sinclair stations are pretty much full up on what they can carry on their local stations. They have whatever national network the local station is an affiliate of on their main signal, and then on their subsignals they have American Sports Network and CometTV that they own.

Well, Faith Goldy and Lauren Southern are both free agents. I'm assuming that you're assuming filling a new channel with fox-type women?

435 >>>403 Captain, what are the Sinclair stations?
Posted by: booknlass at August 22, 2017 12:09 AM (kzWMl)

Sinclair Broadcast Group, owner of 173 TV stations, and well on it's way to being the largest TV station operator in the USA. Their news reporting leans conservative, and they also produce "Full Measure", a syndicated Sunday news program hosted by Sharyl Atkisson, one of the last real TV journalists left.

Sinclair also runs three multicast networks (Comet, Charge! and TBD). Maybe a digital subchannel news network with Bannon -- free and over the air -- might be an appealing idea for the Sinclair owners.

It's like Rush back in the 80's. AM radio was dead, all the top stations in most markets were FM music stations, and AM stations were still trying to compete as music stations. Rush came along, and then News/Talk stations took off. People didn't need great sound quality because it was just someone talking.

Streaming is like that. When you watch sports, you want that picture in 720P or 1080i, not 480i (standard definition). Streaming that HD content takes a lot of bandwidth. Streaming a news/talk television station won't need that bandwidth as people will be happy to get it in Standard Definition.

It was telling what drove the movement from SD to HD, it was sports. ESPN was one of the first networks to distribute HD content. Some of the last networks to switch to HD were the news/talk stations like Current and FreeSpeechTV.

As to the Maine taxpayers, I'm sure they didn't get to feel nearly as warm and fuzzy, on average, as the politicos that came up with that laptop giveaway. And so it goes.

As to lottery winners, when your main retirement plan consists of winning one, and so you play the lottery a lot, then let's just say that your financial planning skillz are probably not top notch to start with.

Lastly, Bannon is right -- With even Fox News drifting ever leftward, he could quite easily grab that chunk of network space.

Laptop bag for carry on. Nothing more.

Duffel with internal, TSA approved hard cases for various firearms and ammo within, as well as weekend's clothing, shaving kit, bourbon and cigars.

I've flown with much heavier armaments, to a Three Gun Match in Orlando, but that was on Continental United, which is a proven gun-carrier carrier.

Suffice to say, if I make the trip, the duffle will be the most heavily insured item in the cargo hold.

That was funny.

I remember, years ago back when it was remotedly funny, SNL did a bit along those lines. Rachel Dratch and Mia Rudolf (sp?).

Rudolf was waxing Rachel, doing this sort of Puerto Rican accent. She ripped and stripped, with Rachel making squeaking noises, then said, okay roll over, I'm gonna do your backside.

Wait, whut?

No, you want that. It'l look funny bare with a big ol' fuzzball on the back.

So she rolls over.

As to why I do it--because I have a delusional belief that fighting them will somehow contribute to the battle for public opinion. I don't really try to convince *them* exactly, but rather the moderates/LIVs who one of us might be friends with and who happen upon the FB threads. Poor justification, I know, but I can't shake the urge. I suppose it really comes down to not wanting them to have their way all the time on Facebook.

I don't pick fights with them nearly as much as I did a few years ago, though; I just mostly keep them at arm's length and only deal with them if they complain about stuff I've posted directly.

Cake is baked. Has thought about putting them on and in the oven but then they would get toasted. Want them to be like fluff but stiffer.

Hell, you know what was the first thing they did right after the Trail of Tears, when they were forcibly relocated to Oklahoma?

634 The Cherokee today are the largest and most prosperous of the Indian tribes, because of cultural appropriation. Their land in Oklahoma is referred to as the Cherokee Nation, not the Cherokee Reservation, because they were smart enough to see the power of buying their land.

I was on a 40-something foot motor yacht, many years ago, and we lost the steering. It was a fairly new boat built in Hong Kong, before it went back to China, but it had cable steering, which was already obsolete. One of the pulley blocks at the side of the transom, the lag screws simply pulled out of the wood.

So here we are motoring round and round in big circles, slowly approaching some rocks, while me and another guy are frantically working in the stern well trying to reattach the block. We were successful but it was a near thing. had to sort of augur starting holes in the wood with a screwdriver, and then crank in the lag screws with a Crescent wrench.

If those Navy vessels do not have some means of totally disengaging electronic and mechanical intermediaries, and putting control of the rudder(s) onto a strictly manual basis, they surely should. I realize moving the rudder of a large ship will take a lot of effort, and could only be done slowly by a crew working a large windlass, but it could be done. Which would be a lot better than sitting there with a finger up your ass if the autopilot goes berserk or has been subverted by enemy hacking.

661 *wanders back in*

So any legit sources on McCain losing steering? That would be a serious goof. And at a very suspicious time.

One would guess if the bridge loses steering, then call ENG, and shift rudder control to down below.

As to what is down there at the rudders, used to be steering motors and rams that would turn those suckers.

Posted by: Anna Puma (HQCaR) at August 22, 2017 02:50 AM (WjqDo)

662 AOP, final comment of my night, but darn my memory - was actually on a Burke-class not long ago, and may well have asked about manual back-ups (as I recall someone else marveling at the small wheel - automated, I assume fly-by-wire steering). But I don't recall, alas.

A warship certainly should have redundant mechanisms for the essentials, one would think. In the aforementioned WWII reading I was just doing, several of the damaged ships shifted steering control to the rear, and also had back-up/alternative bridges (in effect). Came in handy when 6- 8- and 14-inch shells are rearranging your ship.


Posted by: rhomboid at August 22, 2017 02:51 AM (fZlu3)

663 Further to my previous post, there's another way steering could be divorced from a compromised auto-pilot. Use accumulators, such as are used to operate the blowout preventers on oil rigs. They use high-pressure nitrogen cylinders to work actuators that close the various rams and/or the annular "bag". It is a completely independent system, and needs no electrical power or mechanical energy from the rig motors, which would get shut down ASAP in the event of an anticipated blowout.

You could use such accumulators on a ship. Have their actuators connected directly to the rudder pivot, and so designed that, idle, they present little drag. The autopilot and normal assisted steering could be coupled to that with a flange using explosive bolts, and the engine room Chief entrusted with a battery box to connect to them to sever the connection.

666 659 If those Navy vessels do not have some means of totally disengaging
electronic and mechanical intermediaries, and putting control of the
rudder(s) onto a strictly manual basis, they surely should.


AOP. of course they should. As part of damage control, if nothing else. I recall loss of rudder control on one of the more famous plane crashes led to the installation of backup manual systems on all commercial aircraft. The hydraulic lines got cut somehow iirc.

As the military becomes more electronics dependent for operations, things will only get worse. Take our newest aircraft carrier, where they have eliminated the steam catapult system. Progress, or folly?

667 That Bible verse about money (I Timothy something or other, I think; not looking it up) is perhaps the most mis-quoted verse in the Bible.

The electromagnetic catapult means more launches, with less time between, with higher ordinance loads than anyone else in the world can manage, especially since they're stuck with their stupid ski jumps.

If it works like it's supposed to, it'll mean we're still decades ahead of everyone else.

That kind of thing isn't the problem, it's hardware that should work as long as you keep it charged from the reactors, and its controls shouldn't be any more susceptible to fucking with 'em than the reactors themselves.

The problem is with stuff like GPS navigation. There's been articles recently about Russia developing GPS spoofing technology. It wouldn't surprise me if China has also, and isn't using it to tell our ships that there's nothing nearby, and commercial ships that there's nothing but open water where our boats are.

I didn't recall the "kinds of" being in the verse. The interlinear indicates that was added, and is not in the KJV.
http://biblehub.com/interlinear/1_timothy/6-10.htm

This short view had some thoughts.
What stood out to me was that money (didn't exist for the earliest evils) stands for having something that entitles you to buy/take what your neighbor has ... which fits with the keeping up with the Jones's thing.

It also fits with how the coastal elites have enriched themselves on 300:1 leveraged monetary power, underwritten by monetary policy and bailouts. Then they imported their foreign domestic labor (slaves) and scold us deplorables for not loving their corruption of our heritage, developed by men who fought for it.

"Writing in Dec

"In Dec 1861 in a London weekly, Charles Dickens, strong opponent of slavery, wrote about our war:

"The Northern onslaught upon slavery is no more than a piece of specious humbug disguised to conceal its desire for economic control of the United States."


Karl Marx, like most European socialists of the time favored the North. ... he articulated what the major British newspapers, the Times, the Economist, and Saturday Review, had been saying:

"The war between the North and South is a tariff war. The war, is further, not for any principle, does not touch the question of slavery, and in fact turns on the Northern lust for power."

Posted by: fluffy

the slave owners had political clout, but Robt E Lee was against slavery, yet also against a war that would destroy so much of his local heritage, for what he must have known was a war not really about slavery.

Slavery could have been allowed to die out slowly as it already was, and it might be that even the blacks as a whole would have been better off. Many died after the war ... being shunned/encamped by the union army after the war.

But the North sought power. A historian could maybe put together a good argument for how the deal made for states to retain all (sovereign?) powers not expressly given to the federal power (in the constitution) ... that deal was broken by Lincoln and we've been on a federal power trip ever since.

We've damned near whacked the last of ISIS - with a lot of help from the Russkis - and I see no reason why 'fix, encircle, and exterminate' can't work in Afghanistan, too.

Afghanistan is surrounded by other nations (is itself a collection of nations) and when one empire invades it, all that empire's enemies have to do is give support to the rebels.

Ibn Abi Bakra had various para-Hindu princes dotted around his army. The British had to deal with the Persians and the Russians. The Russians had, well, Charlie Wilson (D).

And now America has to deal with Iran AND China AND Putin, AND the Pakis.

116 I'm perfectly fine with 4,000 more troops there, just so long as they're combat aviators, artillery, first rate infantry and armor.

The entire JAG cadre needs to be shipped back stateside, pronto.

Supply and logistics REMFs are brothers at arms, and very necessary to the effort.

H.R. departments wearing camo have no place in-theater. Go back to having a Company Paymaster, and leave the rest of the SJW back office to wither at Ft. Wherever, ND.

Our military, if stuck in Afghanistan, needs to have all the Taliban types shitting themselves in fear at just the mere thought of encountering an American solider.

The Afghan civilian though, needs to be in awe of those fantastic Americans, for every good reason that Americans are known for.

But not because of "Meals on Wheels" programs.

But because American Soldiers are Just and Merciful, to those deserving of it.

And American Soldiers, Marines, Airmen and Sailors, are the baddest assest futhermuckers on the planet, and are not to be fvcked with by any herd of goat molesting carpet sniffers.

Seek, find and destroy the enemy. No mercy, no quarter, no escape.

Could be done in months, not years. IF ONLY we had the national will, and stomach to do so.

That is all. Carry on.

After being confronted, he tried to drink some of the liquid explosives but "immediately spit the liquid on the ground ... then proceeded to pour the contents of the bottle on the ground next to him," according to the statement.

"Nitroclycerin is highly dangerous to transport or use," Hutchinson wrote. "ln its undiluted form, it is one of the world's most powerful explosives."

The banner was for *the ship* and it's crew, not for him or the war. That was clear if you actually heard or read the speech.

One of the top 20,000 misreported stories on the last 20 years.

This is an incorrect and fallacious take on recent history.

It was not President Bush who flew the "Mission Accomplished" banner, nor was that banner in any way a part of the Presidential visit (via arrested landing), aboard the carrier U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln.

The banner was produced and flown by the Ship's Company, denoting HER "Mission Accomplished", after an extraordinarily long deployment in-theatre.

But of course, the press used the camera angles to conflate the two things, and then proceeded to endlessly beat that misconception into the American conscious, until myth became "fact" to so very many.

It's the Press. It's what they do.

And they must be destroyed as an institution, asap.

Jake reenlisted because he loves the Army and is now an NCO serving somewhere in Eastern Europe (Poland, I think, but he can't tell me outright.) I like it that he spends his free time with Polish and Romanian girls, with no bad guys shooting at him, but that won't last. At some point his unit will draw the card and be sent there, I know it.

Nothing in Afghanistan, that godforsaken rathole, is worth my son's life. Nothing. I have yet to see or hear anything from a representative of the Afghani people that says they even want us there. So let's not be there. If it's what they want, let them live unmolested in barbarism and savagery until the end of fucking time.

228 I have to disagree with the idea that we can have allies without changing ideologies. The reason we're in Afghanistan stems from the ideology and governance of that place prior to 9/11. A large part of the reason that we're still there is because we have too many islamophiles in the State Department and the Intel Community who are hostile to western beliefs and who wanted to preserve the same primitivism that created these problems in the first place. If we'd been more aggressive about promoting western ideals, we'd be in a better position.

I still think that we should have adopted all the Afghan war orphans, sealed off a couple of valleys, and spent ten years training up a generation with a western education and western military training.

I alluded to that last night. In a country with a government like ours, wars have to be short, sharp, and decisive. Otherwise the government changes hands through elections, and the incoming party wants to repudiate the policies of its predecessor and do something different. Thus the mission loses focus.

I think this is practically inevitable.

Change tactics and objectives in Afghanistan. Don't tell the Taliban what they are.

Hold Pakistan accountable for their cooperation with terror, with the primary lever for accountability being a new alliance with India. I've been wondering why the FUCK we haven't already done this since I was in high school.

Greater crackdown on finances and travel in terror-riddle countries. Lean on European countries to increase military expenditure with a possible benefit of increased vigilance at home.

Son is dealing with a lot of personal shit, is busy with the start of his last year of college, serving as president of SVA (student veterans' group), and a college service organization. He's lost another friend to suicide. My husband and I worry, because this is the third friend he served with he's lost. His mental state isn't the best, and I'm sick for him.

Our new African student is fine, but needs waaaay more attention than previous students. Poor kid has never traveled from his own country. So we (I am) are busy.

See my remarks above at 297. You do have a bad apple element (less than 1 percent) who are fifth columnists. Don't throw out the 99 percent because of the 1 percent. Hell, Nidal Hassan killed more American troops than any of our Afghan allies ever did, and he was one of us. What are we supposed to do, surrender?

329 Do not think Trump will mindlessly pursue victory. When the casinos failed, he cut them off. He will not cut off the military, but he will pull out of Afghanistan if the mission fails again.

But even a partial victory- showing that America can gain any ground with a focused policy that has no room for the culture shocking that defined Dog Eater abroad- will be a true sign to the military. A sign someone cares.

Get ready. This thing is not entirely about Afghanistan.

We made a serious strategic error after 9/11 in not simply leveling the place with wave after wave of B-52's carpet-bombing the entire fucking country for a month or so, and then saying "don't ever even think about fucking with us again--OR HARBORING THOSE WHO HAVE DONE SO, or it'll be nukes next time."

There's no question that in the end there will have to be a negotiated settlement between Kabul and the Islamists that gives the Islamists a more conservative society in the Pashtun areas. Think of the Islamist political party as the Democrats and the Taliban as the KKK in the Reconstruction South. What it basically took to keep the peace was 100 years of letting the Democrats run the South one step removed from slavery. That will be the outcome in Afghanistan. But before the Afghans can get to that, the Taliban have to be convinced that their cause is militarily futile and there is no point in fighting to get what they want. That is achievable, but it means we and the Afghan government have to take off the gloves and kill a bunch of them. There will be some innocent lives lost and property destroyed. Sherman's March to he Sea was not pleasant.

Way back in the day, when I joined the Air Force, you took an oath when you signed up for delayed entry, and took it again when you processed out for basic.

398 He laid out the elements of "victory", but some assembly is required. Not too hidden or complicated. But not a timetable, or a checklist.

Creating conditions for a political solution. Mentioned Taliban. Recall, that outfit is hardly of one mind, or without its own divisions and opportunities for exploitation.

Just as the "surge" and the recent roll-up of ISIS showed, the main things are in fact pretty simple. Force, killing, imposing your will. Acceptable end-conditions vary by circumstance. A'stan likely will require a pretty flexible definition of acceptable - but he and others know that.

NO, do NOT "take this to a recruiter".

Every U.S. Army Base, and most Posts, have a CID element attached to the JAG or MP Companies.

Make some phone calls, and speak to a CID investigator. You can go see them in person if distance allows, OR send your whole package of printouts by FedEx or other overnight carrier with tracking number and delivery verification.

CID will absolutely make Hope Solo's asshole look virginal, in comparison to the cavity search they'll do to what passes for a "brain" with this particular specimen.

By the way, CID stands for "Criminal Investigative Division".

Badass Cops, the Army's FBI, if you will.

Yup. IIRC, one of the things that made the bomber crews go nuts was losing people every day and not knowing when it would end, and the 25-mission policy improved mental health markedly.

I talked to my Father about this very subject.... he was WW2 and Korea, USN....

He saw some horrific shit, but could put it in perspective because the Victory was worth the shit...

Some of us were never allowed Victory.... it was constantly given away by politicians, even after we paid the price for victory.

That is how you destroy a military force... have them pay the sacrifice, but then don't allow them to win....

And after 9/11.... we are there...

471 That's not true. Our son drove convoys all over
Helmand Province. He was injured in a mortar attack, and has a badly
injured back to prove it. He also came under attack while investigating
an IED after leaving a FOB where 40 Marines had died. He laughs about he
and a buddy running and dodging rounds until the Tolleeeebon was taken
out by a hellfire missile.

Jane, you are correct. Your son's experience was the exception, not the rule. The typical deployment is very unexciting. I've spent a lot of time in Afghanistan since 2008. Believe it or not, Afghanistan is statistically safer than Mexico, Brazil, or Nigeria.

In fact, I wish more people would use this tool to capture leftist idiocy on Twitter and elsewhere. As opposed to screenshots which could ostensibly be faked, the archive.is snapshots are difficult to repudiate once the authors have deleted their tweets--short of claiming to have been hacked.

480 Thanks folks, for "seconding" my advise.

Here's why you don't take that to recruiter.

They're on a very strict and demanding "quota" system, for "sales" (new recruits)

Those recruits MUST get through not only Basic Training, but at least a certain number of months on Active Duty, to "count" for the recruiter's quota.

Recruiter will basically stop at nothing to get anyone who can fog a mirror, past the tests and clear the background check, signed up, into the system and out of basic and secondary training.

Bad things go into a Recruiter's Service Record if they fail in their tasks.

Most Recruiters really won't knowingly sign up a criminal or outright mental defective.

But that girl with some "odd" political views they knew nothing about? Yeah, they'll be pushing her through, with every fiber in their being.

Go to CID, or if USAF, to OSI. Navy is NIS, which does for Marines, too.

But NO WAY to a Recruiter. And I mean this with no disrespect to Recruiters. My late Dad had to serve a hitch as one in his career as a USN Submariner.

No easy task. Either of those jobs.

Let us know what transpires!

The best thing about Delayed Entry is that it allows recruiters to meet their future quotas by delaying recruits to a future month if they're over quota, which makes that future month's quota easier to make.

Yup. IIRC, one of the things that made the bomber crews go nuts was losing people every day and not knowing when it would end, and the 25-mission policy improved mental health markedly.

On the Banks of the Wabash, Far Away Lyrics
Written by Paul Dresser
Composed by Paul Dresser

'Round my Indiana homesteads wave the cornfields,
In the distance loom the woodlands clear and cool.
Oftentimes my thoughts revert to scenes of childhood,
Where I first received my lessons, nature's school.
But one thing there is missing in the picture,
Without her face it seems so incomplete.
I long to see my mother in the doorway,
As she stood there years ago, her boy to greet.

[CHORUS]

Oh, the moonlight's fair tonight along the Wabash,
From the fields there comes the breath of newmown hay.
Through the sycamores the candle lights are gleaming,
On the banks of the Wabash, far away.

Many years have passed since I strolled by the river,
Arm in arm, with sweetheart Mary by my side,
It was there I tried to tell her that I loved her,
It was there I begged of her to be my bride.
Long years have passed since I strolled thro' there churchyard.
She's sleeping there, my angel, Mary dear,
I loved her, but she thought I didn't mean it,
Still I'd give my future were she only here.

The belief in God and Praying had something to do with it, I always think of the men in the Revolutionary war and Civil war. How the hell did they just line up and face a slaughterhouse, the belief in God had something to do with it. I have read my Great Great Grandfather's Civi war documents, that dealt with him trying to get a Pension or disability benefits because he was shot through the shoulder. Lots of Info even from his Comanding Officer who thought he would die and promoted him so his Widow would get better benefits.

544 The only reason, after we toppled Saddam, I thought we should be in Afghanistan and Iraq was for them to have some kind of stable government so we could have bases there. Those two nations surround Iran, our main enemy, and have borders with other places that support terrorists, Pakistan and Syria etc..

This has not changed, indeed our enemies have gotten worse while we screwed around nation building under Bush and arming terrorists from the looted armories of a dictator, under Obama, we had under control but Obama/Hillary/Rice/Power decided to topple in order to get those arms to/for the bad guys.

We need bases, larger in Iraq where we can support them by sea and smaller in Afghanistan where they will have to likely be supported by air and so Spec-ops ones. Both their governments can be anything as long as they don't support our enemies and are fairly stable.

Planned Parenthood Now Fundraising By Selling You a Uterus Emoji For Two Buck

Meet "Ooti the Uterus" -- or better yet, don't. (Safe link to the Daily Wire.)

If you're wondering what this Hot New "Millennial Pink" (Seriously -- they say that) icon would look like, well, it basically looks like a uterine Poochey the Dog from the Simpsons.

Radical, guys!

I mean -- Radical, persons of a wide spectrum of gender choices.

poochi.jpg

So there you go: A further move to define the self as exclusively a function of skin pigment and genitals.

When will we stop this rampant identity politics raging on the right?, asked a Concerned #RealReporter on CNN.

Update: Joss Whedon just emailed me to say he banged Oooti after discussing Melissa Etheridge's third album with the emoji fangurl.

Asking for a xiend...

Posted by: Jim Acosta at August 21, 2017 07:57 PM (ce4vQ)

93 I just figured out why she has that weird shape. Ooti has partial mullerian agenesis, with atresia of the cervix and vagina (that's why she doesn't have a cervix). She's accumulated secretions and shed endometrium in the endometrial cavity, and the hydrometrocolpos explains why she is so swollen in comparison to her fallopian tubes and ovaries.

I knew there had to be a reason.

First dog we ever had when I was a kid was a dachsund/chihuahua mix. Meanest little shit I've ever seen in a dog. You couldn't walk within 3 feet of while it was eating without risking ankle/shin damage.

It lasted about 6 months with us before it bit a neighbor kid in the face because she wanted to pet it not knowing it was gnawing on a bone. A ride to a farm in the country followed.
