Back then the museum was what ever could be pushed up to the Perimeter Road fence with a board mounted description in front of it.

  • Despite The Faux Outrage, The Media Really Loves Ferguson

    "a calculated decision by those in the media’s upper echelon to shed their white guilt and bring “attention” to what they consider long-simmering, racial injustice...

    Which is mirrored by the innate liberal drive to "shed white guilt" by making sure the riots get under way and keep going once started;
    Regardless what is said or written, scenes of these riots are full of white faces (and now Guy Faulks masks favored by a mostly white anarchist movement). If LA's Rodney King rioting is any guide I'd bet the opening "attention getting" in Furgeson was staged by a small cell of white liberals knowing full well what the result would be.

    So the only difference between Soviet philosophy / T34 and US philosophy / M4 was that Sov's used diesel rather than gasoline so that their tanks weren't apt to be referred go as "Ronsons".

    Agree totally regards Springsteen, maybe even moreso.
    As to John Fogarty, you have to remember that the reserves in '66-'75 were pretty much a risk free summer camp and much sought after by discerning draft dodgers - plus many of those reservists got retirement bene's 10 or 15 years after the draftees were back on the street.
    It also might help to remember that skipping out was considered as honorable to many of our peers and a lot of us paid a price back "home" for wearing green.

    On the other hand:
    Today's reserve and Guard are being beaten like rented mules by the Pentagon and Congress, they deserve every honor that might be put forward.

    Most old timers here should remember that Fortunate Son, Fixin' to Die Rag, and We Gotta Get Out of This Place, were pretty damn popular within the ranks...and we're veterans just like today's kids. (Except for the creaking joints and such.)

    Really sad to know that aside from better prosthetics and admitting to PTSD, the VA still sucks after 40 years.

    "You can ban people with passports from those countries but they aren't the only carriers."

    A legal traveler visiting Sierra Leone would have a visa & entry/exit stamps on their passport no matter where they came from.
    passport is simply shorthand for a review of that document for if, where, and when it had been stamped by an infected country.

    In view of the potential pandemic and incubation period it is only reasonable to take any and all steps to limit the risk to our own citizens.

    Which brings me to the current reports of a medical worker whining about being isolated by NJ upon return from W. Africa: seems she feels all righteous about tending to ignorant tribes elsewhere but has no concern for her own countrymen. (No, "tribe" isn't racist and "countrymen" isn't sexist. "Savages" would apply but invite misrepresentation and "countrypersons" sounds dumb.)

    the only people that came in contact with him that have come down with ebola symptoms are 2 nurses at the Dallas Hospital. ((And they supposedly wore protective gear...Statistically , why aren’t there more infections?? This seems strange to me.

    At this point, what difference does it make?

    The crux of the matter is that a potentially aggressive and potentially fatal disease is ravaging W. Africa and our masters insist that it is best treated by sending untrained NG troops into the infected zone and leaving out cities open to unfettered importation of a virus no one actually understands...What could go wrong?

    CDC has directed my local hospital to hand out questionnaires, beyond that, there are three or four truly prepared medical centers in the USA & everyone else is on OJT.

    It should be paramount to the administration that the risk of infection be isolated outside our borders.

We found her wandering around the car lot & ended her 'independent living'.

    Cops wouldn't go past minimal investigation because gypsies have far too many escape routes and legal games.

    Regardless of a few desultory airstrikes by a couple of member states, Turkey has put NATO in a whole different position than Steyn suggests.

    Argue this with a pure conservative capitalist though and see what you get. All black or white with no room for any shade of gray, reason, logic or judgment.

    if you don't work for the feds you must never have seen how the government runs its repair centers, you've never seen how the feds account for time or dollars, and you've never seen how a bureaucracy of unionized workers can lose things, cover errors, stifle individuals, and bury production in paperwork.

    I have direct experience in or with five maintenance centers in two branches and contracts under almost every government hardware procurement system and customer you can name.

    We're a long way beyond a time when one dedicated officer could develop a new rifle at an isolated arsenal, write to a manufacturer for arms for his troops, or influence design of the next model Colt.

    Hint:
    The government mantra is profit-bad, no profit-good. In their hands that translates into making sure losses are explained by procedures, physical plant is justified (even if not used), staffing is up to (drives) budget, and hours are spread until they cover labor cost demand. Procurement costs are driven by a combination of specifications that try to define every needed element without understanding or knowing what is required to do it, and suppliers who know that there is money to be made by finding answers to the inevitable errors.

  • The High-Tech Case For Bringing Back The Draft

    09/15/2014 11:32:48 PM PDT · 41 of 41
    norton to 2ndDivisionVet
    Mixed emotions:

    The draft was far from being fair but it was a wide net that did bring together men from all walks and all levels of skill, smarts, culture, and patriotism.
    For better and for worse.

    The volunteer forces require commitment from the get-go and should be sure to draw only those who intend to make good at it.
    Some for better and some for worse.

    A conscripted military can either bring the home front together in support, as in WW2, or engender a sizeable anti-war movement as during Vietnam.

    From everything we've seen since 9/11 it's clear that the volunteers are capable forces, but in the government's eye, they are assets to be driven until the wheels fall off.

    Despite the apparent high quality of today's troops I'm confident that Rangle and his progressive allies are posturing about a draft because their supporters think that it would somehow equalize risk between the classes.
    How often have we heard that so & so's kid didn't have to go to war but some poor kid joined up for the education benefits or for a decent salary?

    (Yet during the sixties those same democrats screamed about inequities in the draft system.)

    Finally, a quote:

    "...it's nice to be wanted. But the people that Allenby and Hagerott want to enlist for national security are the same ones who are valued in civilian society as key drivers of economic growth."

    (IIRC that's where most company grade officers, the RAF, OSS / spooks, code breakers, and assorted other heroes, came from during WW2.)

    "Scooping up these innovators in the net of universal conscription would make the hard-sell of reinstating the draft even harder."

    (See above regarding class warfare...the elitism of the entire article is self evident.)

    Also; who profits?

    Consider what happened to LBJ(a jerk and a true FDR democrat) after JFK (not the dove he's portrayed to be) was disappeared ?
    The left ate Johnson alive and made sure he was broken away from the Kennedy myth.
    The democrat party turned totally away from anything Truman or JFK would have supported and led us steadily to the fecal repository (can) we find in today's DC.

    LBJ was probably too canny to have a national level opponent burned on his (Texas) turf.

    In '63 I watched the coverage (from college - I was a liberal then...'till drafted) and heard/read all the after reportage, I heard it all again ten years later on tape, read the theories and collect WW2 rifles, and I have no hard opinion on who or where the shots came from ('though the grassy knoll DID stand out in all those real time reports) so I can't add anything to the specific shooter debate.

    But I do seriously believe that the hit was bought and paid for by someone within the party who had a vision of the direction history was fated to go - and now we're almost there.
