    An inflatable offshore vest with an attached McMurdo PLB is my solution. It goes on before I leave the dock.

    I focus more on their charter in which they were required to pay back their investors in England with the plantation’s profits. Their charter’s northern boundary was the coast of Connecticut. By settling beyond CT they were not obligated by the terms of the charter. I’d go with the beer theory too. And also the log states they could not get past the Nantucket shoals so had to land to the north.

    “Born with a silver spoon in the mouth” isn’t a meaningless saw.

    I use nano-silver to alleviate diabetes symptoms. 16 oz. of 40 ppm before bed and again when I wake up does wonders.

    And both performers are avowed deviants who decry America. You can bet their deviance was a magnet to the jihadis. Jihadis tend to be socially conservative and believe it or not many are pro-American due to our institutions of freedom and individualism.

  • Middlebury College Announces More Disciplinary Actions Over Charles Murray Student Riot

    When their parents are paying $50K/year for their attendance just how much discipline is the college willing to apply? That’s the gist of it.

    The fact the colleges are overwhelmingly Leftist belies the fact the people who have the money to send their kids are overwhelmingly Leftist as well. I.e. the elites who dominate a rigged political-economic system.

    The colleges just dance to their customers’ tune to bring in the money.

    The only consolation is that a degree saturated in Leftism has very little practical application in a free, capitalist system. I slake my thirst with the tears of their desperation.

    Took my daughter to watch The Smurfs last Saturday. Reserved seating, reclining leather seats. We sat down next to a mother and her 2 boys ages ~ 4 and 6. We were the only people in the row. The mother was 30-ish, tall, thin, blue-eyed with long blond hair with what appeared to be a permanent scowl. Not appealing at all and she had expensive shoes and purse. During the movie she started body flirting with me. As my daughter was sitting between us it disgusted me. I looked to the side to watch the movie to get her to turn it off. Not interested at all.

    At the end of the movie, walking out her boys ran ahead. I asked the older boy how he liked the movie. He said it was ok (yeah, it’s a chick flick). The boys were muted to the point of seeming depressed. Noted. So where’s dad? At that point I figured something bad had transpired with their dad, not by accident.

    So, outside walking to our car my daughter and I walk past them. As we go by I hear the older boy say to his mother “I liked it but I wish dad was here”. To which the mother responded “he doesn’t have the money to see it. That’s why he’s in jail.”

    Like Iran North Korea is the nuclear-armed proxy of its larger neighbor. Russia and China are using their nuclear-armed proxy states to extort and control the region having attained nuclear deterrence against the United States.

    The degree to which Russia and China howl when the US attempts to deploy ballistic missile defense systems against the proxy states proves this.

    Plutonium reactors and ICBM technology to Poland, South Korea and Japan NOW!

    Iran and North Korea are not crazy states. They are Russian and Chinese proxy states for respective regional expansion thru a nuclear deterrent against the West.

    “And remember to buy paper copies, or put your kindle/ereader in a mylar bag. FReegards”

    This is a common misconception on FR. That an EMP = charged particles, not a gamma ray burst.

    A mylar bag will not protect against an EMP. Zip, zero, nada. Charged particles, yes. Gamma rays -no.

    To protect agasints gamma rays a few inches of steel or several feet of earth are required.

    “Nah, China is about done with the Norks, too, esp. after fat boy threatened China. Oops, bad move.”

    Really, REALLY, getting tired of hearing this line of fantasy.

    China and North Korea have a mutual defense treaty.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sino-North_Korean_Mutual_Aid_and_Cooperation_Friendship_Treaty

    It has not been repudiated. It is still in effect. Got it?

    This is the reason why China recently sent 150,000 troops to the border of North Korea.

    They used B-1s in Baghdad to do low-level, high-subsonic runs over the city. They called it something like Morale Suppression and was done when there was general unrest. As I recall it certainly seemed to calm things down.

    Trumps a businessman. He knows the bottom line and how to manage financing. He’s got to be disgusted with the budget and CR being used to finance his political detractors and opponents.

    I loved his dual-use tweets about a shutdown -in September. Lol. He knows the conservatives will just put 1 + 1 together and say why not just do it now for a CR that funds their priorities via a simple majority. Turn it around. Make the dems come begging for their funding because they couldn’t compromise.

    Many are still in Obamaland. It’s a fine line to not rock the boat too hard during a hard to starboard. He’s dealing with millions of damaged, captured minds controlled by serially-corrupt lobbyists and their media mouthpieces. They’ve been running the show for their own benefit for over 30 years -which is the last time there was an honest democrat.

    If they can’t produce... shutter NASA.

    They’ve had 50 years and cannot even return to the moon. They have eight years to put up or shut up. Imo they’re not up to it. All their accomplishments are contracted out to 3rd parties, even the Russians! They have eight years. If they don’t produce then their charter is canceled. Standard business practice.

    As a long time dog owner I’m not buying your sanctimonious virture-signalling, snowflake. It’s a moral-selfie which no one else participates in or wants to witness. Some FReepers you’ve disparaged here made valid, rational and well-supported reasoning for putting a dog down. It was just their misfortune or misjudgement to proffer such reasoning before all the facts were known. Taunting and praddling on about the facts supporting your argument is of no credit to the discussion and it maligns reasonable posters who simply did not have all the facts.

    Having gotten that out of the way the woman is clearly suffering from bi-polar disorder. I don’t think schizophrenia just for the fact her actions exhibit a pattern of consistent reasoning and decision making. A life lived in highs and lows with no control or responsibility over either is bipolar.

    I pity the dog. He seems like innocent little chap caught up in the vagaries of instability and vice. The orignal owner who is the protagonist here only had the dog for two weeks, and that was two years ago.

    I’m fairly confident the law will address this adequately. Her illness will likely be disclosed during psych eval and she’ll need to develop a course of treatment pursuant to her parole. The male accomplice may carry around a felony conviction.

    As for slandering ‘victorian era values’ that is as revisionist as it is incorrect. Using animal fighting for entertainment pre-dates the historical record. It stands as yet another inappropriate, rude and predatious comment on your part. You bend reality and employ demagoguery in order to exploit history for your own self-aggrandizement while maligning posters who made a mis-judgement of fact. Very bad behavior.

  • The EMP Threat From North Korea Is Real, and Terrifying

    Justa to rktman

    You’re mix-matching your electromagnetic radiation.

    A Carrington event/solar flare/charged particles are indeed easily protected using a farday cage, electonric circuit breakers etc.

    An EMP event is a nuclear bomb detonation which releases a gamma ray burst that has several follow on effects that effectively fry unshielded electronics. It requires several inches of steel or feet of earth to insulate against a weapons-grade gamma ray burst.

    A typical protection strategy for an EMP strike is to bury additional essential electronic equipment several feet underground since putting 4” of steel around all electronics is sort of impractical.

    Basically the Chinese and Japanese have a big problem on their doorsteps.

    You mean the Chinese whose scientists regularly attend NK’s ballistic missile and nuclear bomb tests? Those Chinese have a problem?

    There are some ppl on this board who think Chinese and Russian troops are on the border of NK for every reason other than to assist NK in the event of a conflict with the US and South Korea. Pretty delusional.

    From the video they appear to be DT-30s, tracked re-supply vehicles.

    http://www.army-technology.com/projects/dt-30-vityaz-articulated-tracked-vehicle/

    They are for use when rail and roads are unusable.

    Imo the Russians appear intent on re-supply NK in the event of an attack.

    The whole ‘refugee-thing’ is nothing but an ignorant delusion of myopic Westerners.

    They likely did a roll call and 36 didn’t make the call. So there’s the number. Standard practice in military units for 3000+ years.
