  • 'Good Morning America's' Amy Robach apologizes for 'Racial Slur' During Broadcast

    POC (people (alternatively, persons) of color)is the current PC term. It is actually a broader term than colored people which, in its segregation days, referred exclusively to persons of African racial heritage. POC embraces everyone who is not visually European in descent.

    (I was going to say Caucasian but that term applies not only to Europeans but also to persons from southwestern part of Asia (Middle East to India). However, some of those Caucasians are as dark or darker than many Africans, so the PC crowd goes with visual appearance rather than strict racial categories.)

    My thoughts exactly.

    President Bush diverts route of Air Force One to do a visual reconnaissance but does not land out of consideration for the disruption it will cause. Dems: What a cold hearted unfeeling SOB.

    Hiliary and “Links” Obama decide to call it in. Dems: How considerate not to go there a cause a disruption.

    It would be politically incorrect to point out that all the runaway population growth is occurring in the developing world. Positively racist to suggest they implement similar policies to reduce child bearing there. No, in typical liberal/left fashion, the proposal is to punish countries with at or below replacement birth rates further. Yeah, and let’s encourage people from those overpopulated countries to come here and have more babies so the tax base won’t decline and the politicians can buy their votes with handouts. Sounds incredibly familiar somehow.

    Swell.

    Since both personal experience (to include living for a time in India) and research (Internet and otherwise) informs that the CERN statue is of Shiva (along with the attestation by the Indian Government to that fact as cited in the link), can you provide a source (with image) for your assertion it is, in fact, a statue of Kali?

    For what it’s worth, the statute is a standard depiction of Shiva, the Hindu god of creation and destruction, performing the “Cosmic Dance.” The dance, depending on how vigorously Shiva performs it, is either one of creation or destruction.

    The statue in the courtyard at CERN is a gift from the government of India.

    Captain Rhino to grundle

    Another article on the incident with picture of the deceased:

    http://dailym.ai/2aL43f9

    Though not stated in the article, I am beginning to think this was an improperly cleared weapon incident. That is, the live round was already in the chamber (as a part of on duty carry) but the officer failed to properly clear the weapon when the magazine with live rounds was exchanged for the magazine filled with blanks.

    The officer had probably taught the class many times in the past. All that is needed is some small interruption/distraction to throw off the rhythm; the, by now, nearly automatic execution of steps to prepare the duty weapon for the demonstration and you end up omitting one. And the result is a weapon with a live round in the chamber and a magazine full of blanks.

    Formula for disaster: complacency+rushed+improper controls+mixing live and blank ammunition. Yeah, what could possibly go wrong?

    An earlier post mentioned blue rubber training pistols. In this case, you probably needed a blue painted functional pistol with a permanent plug in the breech. It would cycle like a real pistol with blanks but it would be impossible to fully load a live round. Not completely fool-proof (you could end up with a scenario similar to Brandon Lee’s death while filming “Crow”). But better than relying on procedures alone.

    Captain Rhino to Mr. Douglas

    Agree. But this has been going on for sometime.

    About 20-25 years ago, had one of the kid’s VCRs go out after a thunderstorm. It was a couple of years after we purchased it but it had cost @$250, so it might be worth fixing. Took it into the repair department of a big box electronics store. Service department wanted a prepaid $90 troubleshooting fee up front in addition to the ultimate cost of the repair. No, thanks. Went around to the VCR section and bought a new one with better features for $150. Took the old one to the electronics salvage point at the county dump.

    But this “don’t repair, get a new one” doesn’t just apply to inexpensive low end items. Bought a $1700 55” Sony Bravio Digital TV system (TV+Blu-Ray Player+Sound System+Speakers) in 2009 with a supplemental 4 year warranty. After 20 months of service, the power supply in the TV developed a problem. Called the warranty number to set up a repair visit. Day later, warranty department calls back. This particular model was out of production and the power supply problem was so widespread they had used up all the spare repair kits. Result: 100% purchase price store credit ($1700) towards the purchase of a new television. Spent a little more and got a 3D Sony set WITH an extended warranty. Still going strong after 5 years. When it goes out, it will go to the salvage point as well.

    Next one will probably be 4K, maybe curved. May be awhile. With the kids grown and out on their own, we don’t watch that much television any more(on the big screen that is) - except, of course, during football season.

  • Researcher Says Government Is Racist For Recommending Milk

    08/06/2016 5:22:57 AM PDT · 54 of 89
    Captain Rhino to Cboldt

    As the article indicates, ALL HUMANS are lactose tolerant as infants. The intolerance arises when certain racial groups stop producing the enzyme needed to digest milk between the ages of 2 and 5 years of age. Europeans, especially western and northern Europeans, retain this genetic adaption because milk and milk-based products are a continuing source of nutrition and feature heavily in Europed-derived diets.

    Since the issue of lactose intolerance in certain adult populations has been widely known for at least 30 years and the market has already responded by providing a variety of lactose free products, this is yet another example of a racialist (professional racism monger) tempest in a teapot.

    I’m sure we will be hearing about a major initiative on it from the Clinton campaign at any moment.

    Russell Park is very close to the British Museum (wonderful place) and the surrounding area is packed with hotels, B&Bs, various art institutes, quaint shops, and restaurants. Packed with overseas tourists - especially this time of year.

    Watched the same video; had exactly the same thoughts. Not even close to the center.

    By the way, isn’t there a FAA regulation or some such against deliberately leaving an airplane without a parachute? I recall hearing/reading about it after a spate of chute less jumps where an accompanying parachutist carried a spare to be transferred during the fall and attached to the chute less jumper’s parachute harness.

    Have to believe that the signoffs/ waivers on this stunt - not just for the jumper, but also for all the other persons involved in the air and on the ground - must’ve been as thick as a telephone book when they were all stacked up.

    Captain Rhino to milford421

    Actually it harkens back further than that: the 1983 Beirut Marine Barracks Bombing. Here is a link to the Wikipedia article on the bombing and the pertinent portion dealing with the nature of the bomb:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1983_Beirut_barracks_bombings

    “The explosive mechanism was a gas-enhanced device consisting of compressed butane in canisters employed with pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN) to create a fuel-air explosive.[9][10] The bomb was carried on a layer of concrete covered with a slab of marble to direct the blast upward.[39] Despite the lack of sophistication and wide availability of its component parts, a gas-enhanced device can be a lethal weapon. These devices were similar to fuel-air or thermobaric weapons, explaining the large blast and damage.[40] An after-action forensic investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) determined that the bomb was so powerful that it probably would have brought down the building even if the sentries had managed to stop the truck between the gate and the building.”

    However, the Sydney attacker got it wrong in that you need high explosives to provide the energy the gas will enhance, and burst the cylinders to begin with.

    However, setting yourself on fire and crashing the car probably should receive some points for improvisation.

    Captain Rhino to samtheman

    I don’t hate them any more than I hate a rabid dog. The dog didn’t ask to be infected with rabies, its behavior grows out of the virus and, unfortunately, there is only one way to cure it.

    The rapists, migrant or otherwise, are also infected with a corrupted view of sexuality and their behavior grows out of that infection.

    Unlike the dog, that must put down as a mercy to be released it from the terrible suffering it is enduring, human beings are PRESUMED to be able to control their behavior.

    Leftists advance the argument that they cannot be held responsible for their behavior due to their past experiences and therefore must be forgiven and tolerated. How then, when viewed through such a lens, is the rapist distinguishable from the rabid dog? Except, of course, that no one would ever argue that a rabid dog be released once identified and confined.

    To both, the same swift end to release them from their misery and alleviate the danger their continuing existence poses to society.

    As for the leftist woman, of course she lied. To the left, lying is as natural as breathing. Neither facts nor reality must ever be allowed to divert or deflect the forward progress of the political line.

    Captain Rhino to loveliberty2

    The senator seems to long for a parliamentary system where the executive leadership comes out of the legislative body. Based on that longing, President Obama would have been out of office in 2010 since the party controlling the lower, more popularly-elected house forms the government.

    Oh, what’s that? The senator likes this system only when Democrats get to form the government.

    The Founding Fathers were very familiar with the parliamentary system of Great Britain and if they would have wanted to adopt it, they could have and would have. Separation of powers was a deliberate choice made by mature and experienced American politicians for all the reasons stated in your posting.

    The fact that, over two centuries later, we have a senator pining for the combination of the separated executive and legislative powers merely shows how the lust for power is endemic within certain groups of human beings. Long experience with democratic government cannot extinguish it. It is a part of our nature.

    “As for why an institution would do it, really only an institution would, or someone with so much wealth that they couldn’t just safely hold the cash instead. Think of the $5 as a safe deposit box rental, because that’s essentially what it is, although on, say, an “investment” of $100 million, that rental fee becomes a pretty stiff $500,000.”

    Thanks for pointing out my misread of the percentage. Makes a lot more sense at .0005 than at .05.

    In the case of the large holder ($100 million) discussed above, is the risk due to the fact the “cash” (which is really mostly electronic)is being held in a commercial institution vice the government?

    By this I mean that, if the institution mismanages investments, goes bankrupt, etc., deposits are at risk to creditors in liquidation. However, the money on “deposit” with the government is backed by the full faith and credit of the nation (in the case of the US Government) and can be repaid through the government’s continuing stream of tax revenues.

    And, as you say, negative interest rates are a sweet deal for the government since they are being paid “rent” to store the money. Except it isn’t really being stored ....

    I doubt seriously if the Tu22M3s supplied by Russia will be new build airframes since it has been out of production for a while. More likely pulled from storage/service and returned to Tupolev for reconditioning/update. Similar to the modern Tu-142; all rebuilds from Cold War era Tu-95s. Same rationale as for new build B-1s, too expensive to start production for an order of only 4 aircraft.

    BTW, the C-130, C-17, and C-5 have all been landed on dirt runways. If I recall correctly, the C-5 only did it once to satisfy contracted performance requirements. (Desert sand did damage to low mounted engines.) However, the C-130 and C-17 can and have been landed on dirt runways numerous times. Just check YouTube for videos.

    Good question.

    Traditionally, positive interest is a hedge against inflation.

    What expected economic situation 10 years from now would make it acceptable to have 5% LESS than the initial investment - especially for institutional investors?

    This is loss transference from the government to the lender.

    The government borrows the money with the promise to pay back less in 10 years with inflated money - maybe massively inflated money. The lender (ECB?) is essentially making a gift of the negative interest and the depreciation in the purchasing power of the currency (due to inflation) to the governments it is buying the bonds from.

    Don’t know how the MOSs are managed in the Army, but in the Marine Corps, “hammer swingers” are Combat Engineers and have a secondary mission to fight as infantry. Since infantry are in high demand in country, many non-infantry combat support MOSs end up being full trained in urban combat techniques and get their share of experience pulling convoy security, conducting close to the FOB ops, etc.

    With no deadline for the conclusion of their internal investigation, this matter won’t be decided until after the November elections. And then it will turn on who is the winner.

    If Hillary is elected, the State Department will conclude that all the offenses committed in deliberately copying classified information into a private email server system somehow don’t constitute an offense. (Probably some variation on the FBI “intent” excuse.) It would be an offense for anyone else, just not Hillary and her cabal.

    If Hillary loses, they will take whatever administrative nice action they need to quietly close out the investigation. Hillary at that point will no longer be a threat to the State Department and her subordinates will not be in government.

    I knew the State Department was political before, now it’s just hopelessly corrupt. Expect to find no integrity there.

    I’m just waiting to hear that SOMEBODY, either the FBI, DoJ, State Department or whoever, is going to hold accountable the persons who deliberately removed the classification markings from the material and posted it (probably by manually transcribing it from the classified server) to Clinton’s private email server.

    They have the email threads; they KNOW who inserted the material into the stream. Well? WELL!!??

  • [Vanity] Clinton Supporters Angry at Comey for "Editorializing" and then Exonerating

    Wait until he is called up to Capital Hill to testify. With the investigation now concluded and the no indictment recommendation (which Lynch has said she will accept), Comey may have a heck of a lot to say. All of it negative.

    Then there is the matter of who transcribed all those classified documents from classified servers to Clinton’s private email network. We can yet hope that one or two of her inner circle will be charged for that.

    One can only hope.

    Maybe we will also discover if there is an active investigation concerning Hiliary’s time at State and donations to the Clinton Foundation.

    SOMEBODY stripped those emails of their classified markings and transcribed them into Clinton’s private email system. That seems like an deliberate act to circumvent the system. The FBI has the threads. They know who did it. Does The FBI intend to give them a free pass as well?

  • Profs: Orlando massacre caused by 'toxic masculinity,' 'extremist discourses'

    Captain Rhino to Mr. Mojo

    I went to the University of Washington on a military scholarship in (ahem) the mid-1970s. A fellow military student, who was a political science major, showed me one of the papers he had to write for the cadre of leftist/liberals running the department. Its language was so specialized and shaded in its use of common language terms that it read like gibberish. And he knew it did as well. But he also knew what was required to graduate.

    Reading the extracts from these professors, I see things have gotten worse since then. How anyone could respect them is beyond me.

    Seems the bottom of the image was cut off...

    The rest of the story, if I recall correctly, is that the Soviets refused to negotiate, the hostages were killed, and the KGB hunted down and killed not only the kidnappers but also every male in their extended families, effectively extinguishing the bloodline. That apparently got their attention.

    $1,799.00 is about 1/10th the price an original StG44 would sell for. And, as others have noted, 8mm Kurz (7.92 x 33mm) is hard to get and pricey when you can.

  • Reporter Claims the FBI Ordered ‘No Photos, No Pictures’ of Lynch/Clinton Meeting

    Entirely possible.

    Consider this possibility.

    Bill Clinton enters cabin. Cordial greetings exchanged; grandchildren, golfing, etc. discussed. After a few moments, Lynch excuses herself and goes to the restroom. For twenty minutes.

    Sitting on the cabin table is a laptop. Laptop is open and on. On display is an open file containing THE FBI report.

    Bill sits down and quickly scan reads the report; hastily going to the findings and recommendations section at its end. He scribbles notes on a conveniently placed notepad. Or perhaps he takes photos of select pages with his cellphone.

    For deniability purposes, no electronic copy of the report is provided.

    After making considerable noise washing up, Lynch returns. More small talk about grandchildren and golf. Departing best wishes are exchanged and Clinton departs.

    When asked later by the press, Lynch truthfully reports it was mostly a social visit. They talked about grandchildren and golf, etc. No pending matter before the Department was DISCUSSED.

    After all, we are dealing with Democrats here. Lying to them is as natural as breathing.

  • Wegmans bakery refuses to make cake for Ex-Muslims of North America, saying it might offend Muslims

    I frequently go to the Wegmans in Woodbridge, VA.

    Their excellent bakery department has a number of Muslim women employees (complete with headscarves). I imagine the same applies 15 miles up the road in Fairfax. That’s probably where the offended Muslim baker angle comes from.

    As for knowing, the requested cake design incorporated a logo of the organization.

    Still wrong to refuse to bake the cake. (Better not pull that stunt in Oregon or the state EEO Nazis will be all over you!)
