  • Stop the assault on salt

    08/27/2014 12:05:38 PM PDT · 16 of 18
    yefragetuwrabrumuy to jmaroneps37

    Remember also that sodium comes in a lot of chemical combinations, which likely have very different effects in the body. A favorite example of this is common Chex Mix.

    It contains “salt”, sodium chloride; “baking soda”, sodium bicarbonate; but also trisodium phosphate; disodium inosinate; and disodium guanylate. Other ingredients have some sodium in them as well.

    1/2 cup has 2,400mg of sodium. A bag has 8 servings, or about 4 cups. So if you eat a whole bag, just 8.75 ounces, a little more than half a pound, you get 19,200mg of sodium.

    That’s a tad much.

    “But prosecutors claim the incident was premeditated. In a 19-page affidavit, prosecutors say Kaarma and his wife, Janelle Pflager, left the garage door open intentionally and left a purse inside the garage to bait intruders, who had burglarized their home in the weeks prior to the shooting.”

    Based on this, Kaarma should get a ticket for “hunting in a baited field.”

  • Elephants dance to violin music

    08/27/2014 8:43:52 AM PDT · 8 of 19
    yefragetuwrabrumuy to John S Mosby

    Elephant intelligence is pretty extraordinary. When they can, they form tight social and emotional bonds, which, after separation for decades and they are reunited, have very intimate reunions that last for days, during which humans avoid them except very judiciously, in that they fear being separated again.

    I also remember a “behind the scenes” video shoot for an American singing star, in which a younger elephant was to be standing in the shallow ocean waves next to a beach, in the background. But that elephant had never been to the beach, and went “frolicking” in the water like a happy large dog, having a blast. They had to wait most of an hour for it to settle down enough to do the shoot.

    Hopefully, researchers will follow up this violin discovery by giving elephants a library of music to choose from.

  • ISIS Has Drones And Is Using Them In Their Terrorist Attacks

    Lets point out the obvious: the US provided a LOT of military tech to “the Syrian rebels”, and most or all of it ended up in the hands of ISIS.

    This was equipment intended to *equalize* the fight with the Syrian Army, which has top a lot of top of the line Russian military hardware. In the hands of ISIS, it is now being used against the Iraqi Army and the Kurds.

    In other words, every American leader who advocated giving this equipment to “the Syrian rebels”, hoping to overthrow Assad, were the ones who screwed up big time. And they should be remembered for this screw up.

    Hillary was all in favor when she was Secretary of state, now she is backing up big time.

    Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., as well as Marco Rubio, R-FL, and John Kerry pushed hard for “arming the rebels.”

  • The Dead-End Road Called Pre-K

    08/26/2014 8:03:24 AM PDT · 15 of 17
    yefragetuwrabrumuy to Kaslin
    The bottom line of pre-K is different for Republicans and Democrats. Democrats have their perverse "It takes a village" theory, an outgrowth of "the state must raise all children to be loyal to the state", socialist idea best observed in Romania under the vile dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu, who "raised" orphans to be murderous, sociopathic secret policemen. Yeah, Hillary, "It takes a village" to create a sociopath. Republicans, however, have a much simpler reason to support pre-K -- to give poor children exposure to good adult role models away from their "toxic" mothers or parents, many of whom should never ever be around children because of their bad behavior. The Republican attitude is that a mother who is a "crack whore", with a string of "baby daddies", who wants to "party" instead of raising her young children properly, subsisting on welfare and living in a housing project; should never raise children at all. So any effort to separate her children from that, so they can at least see how people *can* live, should be considered. Phyllis Schlafly is not incorrect that pre-K is worthless and counterproductive for normal children from normal families; but the bottom line may be that if people are *willing* to put their young children in pre-K, they probably *need* to, and their children need help from adults *other* than their parent or parents.
  • Mexican President Calls for Immigration Reform in USA: 'A Matter of Justice'

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to Rusty0604

    The turnabout to this is obvious, yet not about Mexican hypocrisy about illegal aliens entering their country. It is why Mexico is such a crappy place to live and do business.

    About a dozen extremely wealthy families control almost all the wealth in Mexico. With much of the rest of Mexico living in grinding poverty. And the wealthy families are unwilling to help improve the lives of their countrymen with decent paying jobs, because they *prefer* poverty among others.

    So, though it strongly goes against conservatism here, in the US, in Mexico, were the government to institute a profound “wealth tax” on these dozen families, mostly to knock them down a bunch of pegs, then use the money to exclusively lower the price of commodities, and consumer goods; then institute tough employment regulations to drive up wages and salaries, it would not only eliminate a huge amount of poverty, but could even “reverse the flow” of illegal aliens, drawing them to go home to Mexico *from* the US.

    Of course such policies in the US would be disastrous to our economy and our people, because we do not have such stupid inequality in the first place. Our billionaires do not care one whit if other people become billionaires, multimillionaires, millionaires, or just enrich themselves and improve their lives. Bill Gates has done this a lot and it hasn’t diminished his life one bit.

    Multi-billionaire Carlos Slim in Mexico has probably not ever done that even once, except for family members. So if he wants to hoard his loot just to prevent success in others, there is no reason that the others should respect that.

    I saw it as a typical bubblegum, Saturday matinee movie, but with a better than typical cast, including the recently late Maximilian Schell (d. 1 Feb, 2014).

    I think its biggest problem was the underlying mood of the situation, which they approached as a typical 1960s Hammer studio science fiction, instead of the much broader look, like in Crack in the World (1965). Because Krakatoa was a planetary event, it didn’t really lend itself to small studio work.

    Unfortunately, the senator from Kentucky sits at the head of the table in the senate, and as you can see with Harry Reid, to a great extent, he controls the national agenda, and can cause untold suffering, misery, deprivation, economic collapse, and inflict bad policies on the entire nation.

    Harry Reid is an evil man, Mitch McConnell is just as intolerable as a weak, feckless, co-dependent, and spineless man. But comparing the two, McConnell is even more harmful, because he not only does not do good, but he stands in the way and blocks others who seek to do good.

    He cannot bring himself to raise his sword against the Democrats; but he is inexplicably brave when fighting those who would. As a Republican, he harms America even more than a Democrat.

    Yes, it is a choice of the people of Kentucky. But if they choose unwisely, it may be one of the last choices they ever make that matters. With their vote, they now have the means to end our republic, and all it ever stood for.

    So Hickenlooper is threatening the public if they don’t reelect him?

    Once Republicans again control the office of the governor and the legislature, they need to remember this, and make it so that the governor cannot *unilaterally* commute, pardon or parole, or authorize clemency, unless it is first authorized by the state board of pardons and paroles.

    This has already been done in other states that had governors who adamantly opposed the death penalty under any circumstance. So the power was taken away from them, without permission.

    This is a great reason to not re-elect Mitch McConnell.

    McConnell has already made it clear that if the Republicans get the majority of the senate, and he is still in charge, that he will revert to the “fairness” rules that existed before Harry Reid destroyed them.

    This means the Republicans will forget all the abuse and unfairness the Democrats dumped on them, ONCE AGAIN, pretending it didn’t happen, and the Republicans will “reach across the aisle” to be extra generous to the Democrats.

    It also means that such criminals as Lerner, Sebelius, Holder and all the others will get a free pass, without having to concern themselves one bit about even being investigated, much less indicted.

    McConnell being elected also means that *nothing* Obama and the Democrats did will be reversed, just accepted as “the new status quo”.

    That’s right. A McConnell senate means that America will *keep* Obamacare, the Democrat plans to destroy energy production will continue unabated, the IRS will continue to torment Tea Party conservative organizations (that McConnell hates and wants to destroy too), the EPA will probably want to regulate breathing oxygen, etc. etc.

    It is even questionable if McConnell will refuse to approve one or two new justices for the Supreme Court. Certainly the conservative senators will rail against nominees like Eric Holder and Cass Sunstein or Hillary Clinton, but McConnell will again bend the knee, and with the help of a few other RINOs, will push them through.

    If before the write-in votes are cast in late October, it appears the Republicans will pick up several seats, then the Tea Party must totally sit out the McConnell race, because there is no way in hell a single freshman Democrat senator can wreak the disaster that another McConnell senate would cause.

  • AZ:Open Carry at Meteor Crater

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to marktwain

    I certainly hope that AZCDL does not “rest on its laurels’ but continues to brainstorm and advocate gun liberty issues.

    Some of my personal favorites:

    1) Intelligent zoning of gun ranges in city areas, as well as encouragement of juvenile gun training and practice for families with kids. That is, both “adult” and “family” gun ranges.

    2) Encouragement of high school rifle clubs and intramural competitions, as well as state marksmanship trophies.

    3) Streamlining regulation and reduced taxation for gun and ammunition manufacturers who produce “state made for in-state use only.”

    4) Court provision of guns, ammunition, and self-protection counseling to “vulnerable persons” who have been given court orders of protection against others who are considered a threat to them. Plus some source of funding for the courts to do this. Likewise, a bench order requiring them to be armed when in public.

    5) Public service recognition awards for citizens who thwart felony crimes.

    6) Formalize the Common Law posse comitatus at state level, so that the county Sheriffs can ‘conscript’ (voluntarily only) “All adult persons of good character in the county in keeping the peace.” This is a crafty way of making county ‘Kennesaw’ laws, technically ‘conscripting’ all adults as lawmen, so that they are “required” (with no penalty for non-compliance) to keep guns and ammunition.

    This goes against any federal efforts to confiscate guns and/or ammo, as to do this, the feds would have to confiscate it from all lawmen in the state, since every adult in the county would technically be a lawman.

    It wouldn’t need to go into effect immediately, just when a Sheriff felt it necessary to protect the public from gun confiscation.

  • Army Hypersonic Missile Fails in Second Test

    08/25/2014 1:33:05 PM PDT · 6 of 14
    yefragetuwrabrumuy to SeekAndFind

    This is what is called “overkill”, a misunderstood term. It does not mean hitting the same target multiple times.

    The reality is that missiles have a tendency to fail, and fail a lot. So if you have a hundred targets, you need extra missiles to hit them, taking the place of the missiles that failed. This is overkill.

    Missiles can explode or just fail in the silo, they can fail to get out of the silo, they can fail just after leaving the silo. If they are ballistic missiles, they can fail with their first section, or when it separates from the second section, or their second section can fail. And if the missile has three sections, there are just two more ways for it to fail.

    Next it can fail to achieve its proper trajectory, or its navigation and guidance might fail, it may fail in reentry, or if it is too far off target to correct itself. Its weapon may not arm, or incorrectly arm and not detonate, or just the high explosive part, not the nuclear part, will detonate.

    And that is just ordinary ICBMs. MIRV (multiple warhead) missiles have even more ways to fail, and hypersonic missiles are right now about as likely to fail as succeed.

    That is why they call it “rocket science”.

    Important notes:

    1) TB is common in parts of Mexico, central and South America. Typically it is “ordinary” (not drug resistant) TB. However, this man is known to have one of the forms of drug resistant TB.

    2) TB is very slow growing, by bacterial standards, much like its closest relative, Leprosy. So about the only way to tell if it is drug resistant, and how drug resistant, is to give the patient an antibiotic, and wait a while to see if it works. If not, then different antibiotics. But this can only be done if the patient continues to take their antibiotics and continues to be monitored. If they take off, like this man, they do not know how resistant his TB is.

    It is hard to tell from looking at the bacteria whether it is alive or dead, but this is helped by the re-discovery of a chemical stain that live bacteria will uptake, but dead bacteria will not.

    3) Once a person has been exposed (infected) with TB, they need to take one kind of drug for about six months to eliminate it from their system. If the disease has gone into an active form, they must take different drugs for a year or two.

    4) The known kinds of TB are “ordinary” TB, just called TB, then Drug Resistant TB (DR-TB), Multiple Drug Resistant (MDR-TB), EXtensively Drug Resistant (XDR-TB), and Completely Drug Resistant (CDR-TB).

    Fortunately, DR-TB is scarce, but becoming more common in third and fourth world countries, and is treatable with low mortality. MDR-TB can still be treated in first world nations. XDR-TB has a substantial mortality rate with treatment. And there have been only two CDR-TB outbreaks, both in India, and both of which killed everyone infected, so burned themselves out.

    5) TB, which used to be called “consumption” and “the white plague”, can flare up in about any organ in the body, though also typically attacks the lungs.

    “The classic symptoms of active TB infection are a chronic cough with blood-tinged sputum, fever, night sweats, and weight loss.” From there it can attack the nervous system, brain and spinal cord (causing paralysis), heart, skin, muscles, and internal organs. Some people looked healthy, then just died.

    In the past, it sometimes resulted in peculiar symptoms like hyper-sexuality, hyper-creativity, insanity, etc.

    In its epidemic form, it caused cultural trauma and morbid thought throughout Europe. What we associate with the Victorian and Gothic ‘looks’, are all based in ‘the TB look’. Pale, gaunt, sickly looking.

    TB sanitariums used to be common, and were distinguished by their prominent smokestacks for furnaces used to burn mattresses and linens.

    Here is a list of celebrities, artists, writers and others who were afflicted with TB. You might be surprised.

  • Why Is It So Hard for Employers to Fill These Jobs?

    08/24/2014 7:21:04 AM PDT · 27 of 178
    yefragetuwrabrumuy to 2ndDivisionVet

    There are several variables not usually considered.

    I was once told by a US Army private that with his officers and NCOs working really hard to fill every minute of his day with productive work, practice, training and learning, he knew that he would still have at least an hour or two of slack time, not including lunch and coffee breaks, during the duty day. Usually more.

    This lead to the discovery that the US Army itself has the ideal goal of getting just one hour a day of work out of each and every soldier and officer on average. And they almost never get it.

    Pondering this leads to some very interesting conclusions about labor.

    “Productivity” is the golden calf of economists, yet it is one of the most meaningless of terms. A rule of thumb is that, the harder one works, they less they are paid for their work.

    Though it is not done, a corporation can be evaluated by at what level in their organizational pyramid useful work almost ceases to be. That is, somewhere in middle management, work is devolved to memo pushing, meeting attending, and coffee drinking, with just a few individuals spending perhaps an hour a week doing something useful.

    The next obstacle to hiring are the people who are doing the hiring. Their objective is to get the hardest working, lowest paying, most experienced and youngest person for a given job. “We want recent college graduates with four years of experience, willing to work at half pay for a six month probationary period”, is a contradiction in terms.

    They often must reeducate college graduates in basic literacy and math skills, in effect paying them to not work while being taught what they should have learned in school.

    Add to this “personal problems” like the unwillingness to show up to work on time on a regular basis, drug, alcohol and tobacco use, medical conditions, previous criminal convictions, below average mental health, years of ‘empty resume’ unemployment, and general dishonesty.

    The leftists are really tearing their hair out about Grothman, which is a great recommendation. When you hit the left where it hurts, they cannot contain themselves, and this is a great cue that you are doing something right.

    On the other hand, conservatives can stand to be generous to the NRCC, even if it hates them and fights conservative candidates.

    For example, perhaps you should send what it is your pocket right now. In my case, I have lint, a slightly used toothpick, a re-bent paper clip I used to clear the nozzle of a Hunt’s, not Heinz, ketchup bottle, and 17 cents in legal tender. Trouble is that’s not enough to pay for the stamp.

    Well, maybe next time. Instead, why doesn’t the NRCC hit up their generous Chamber of Commerce non-US tax paying multinational buddies for a few billion dollars? What’s that? They won’t give money unless the NRCC gets matching funds from suckers?

    Well, ain’t that a thing.

    Simply put, this is a “dhimmi” tax to force Christians to renounce their faith in the payment of the tax, or face severe penalties.

    There was a good Japanese anime turned into a TV movie, called ‘Casshan: Robot Hunter’. The gist is a well meaning scientist creates powerful robots to “protect” the Earth and ecologically restore it.

    But the robots decide to “protect” the Earth by annihilating most of its people. So, just before he and his wife are killed by the robots, they turn their teenage son into a super android to destroy the robots.

    The robots are ruled by the “black king robot”, who is Casshan’s final target, and also contains his late father’s conscious mind; whereas his mother’s mind has been put in a robotic swan.

    Ironically, it is sort of an anti-environmentalist movie. But it moves at a good clip, with a lot of action, and at 1:20 in length it is just long enough.

  • Obama Stands Alone: Even The Media Are Baffled By His Deepening Isolation

    Toward the end of his presidency, it is alleged that feeling very isolated, Richard M. Nixon would hold long monologue conversations with the presidential portraits in the White House.

    Imagining Obama doing that is unlikely, because standing before them, he would just spitefully call them terms of racial hatred, while proclaiming his superiority in every way to all of them, his narcissism running wild.

    Once again, this was not 4chan Anonymous, who disavowed it, but someone, likely in the administration, who was impersonating them. Anonymous is clear that it does not do such things, and did not this time. But governments and intelligence organizations seek to use it as cover for their activities.

  • Poverty Is Not The Cause of Criminal Behavior

    The single, proximate cause of everything afflicting black Americans, outside of sickle cell anemia and high blood pressure, is sex outside of marriage.

    It is no surprise that most black Americans strive to be hypersexual, as they are propagandized with this from a very young age. Likewise, “black culture” strongly encourages sexual license.

    The proof of this would be made manifest if some wealthy black person, such as Mr. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, were to set up a black community designed solely for couples devoted to monogamy and raising their children as a couple.

    No, zero, birth control or abortion, but otherwise good OB/GYN and pediatric services. Family oriented culture and religion, with charter schools that encouraged chaperoned gender integration from a young age.

    No single outsiders or transients allowed in, nor any other representatives of “poisonous culture.”

    What could be expected? A growing birthrate, very little abuse of alcohol or drugs, children oriented to success not just survival, zero gangs and very low other crime, and surprisingly good academic achievement.

    What could also be expected? Extreme hatred directed at the community from liberals and leftist radicals, who would make tremendous efforts to outlaw, undermine, attack, and corrupt that community. They would be willing to commit millions of dollars in an effort to harm such families, and to take control of the situation to prevent any successful outcome.

    As such, that community could only likely survive in the reddest of red states, or it would likely be overwhelmed with money draining litigation, serious opposition by liberal state and federal judges, and the bitterest of attacks by NGOs and leftist organizations. Likewise it would either be vilified by the media, or preferably ignored altogether, in the hope it would fail without publicity. Some real determined evil at work to stop it.

    Might as well headline this: “Hamas decides to exterminate Gazans.”

    Self-inflicted genocide. So wrapped up in hate that they start killing other Gazans, because they are impotent in killing Israelis. They do not care, as long as they sacrifice innocent lives to their god of death.

    “A few years ago, they were just another Thuggee cult.”

    “...all businesses will eventually have to adopt the rule if their bathrooms only have one toilet.”

    Looking at this logically, and assuming they mean *restrooms*, not *bathrooms*, if they only have one restroom, with one toilet and optionally a urinal, then it is almost certainly already “one person at a time, gender indifferent”.

    If they have two restrooms, with two toilets each, then they are also exempt, and can have a male and female restroom.

    So this only practically applies only if they have two restrooms, each with a single toilet, and one labeled for each gender.

    A lot of businesses already have such a set up, of more than one gender indifferent toilets. It doesn’t really matter if they are gender indifferent, because they only have one toilet, so only take one person at a time who enters then locks the door.

  • (Those Were The Days!) PHOTO: Late 1960s: Economy Class Seating on a Pan-Am 747

    To start with, the first photo was a mock-up, not an actual interior. And a lot of the headroom was at the expense of center overhead bins. And the overhead bins on the sides were much smaller.

    The airlines made the money to afford this in two ways. First, with so many passengers on board, the per passenger cost was about halved, as long as jet fuel prices stayed low. The other thing was that 747s could carry a LOT of cargo, which was also big money.

    The two things that stopped it dead in its tracks were the OPEC oil embargo, and Jimmy Carter’s double digit inflation. Both of which, truthfully, could be blamed on Carter, because OPEC, and everybody else, saw him as weak and spineless. Which he was.

    Carter really derailed America from its course to the future. By the end of his time in office, the country was in spiritual depression. Fortunately, Ronald Reagan did much to bring us back, for which he is beloved.

    Carter is just remembered as a pathetic man, a failure as a president and a person.

    In this perhaps there is some karma, for if he is indeed experiencing dementia, his peers will encourage him to vie for euthanasia. Using the same disdain they have for the mentally reduced as they have for the unborn.

    An earlier generation called it “Lebensunwertes Leben”, or “Life Unworthy of Life”, at least from the Nazi point of view.

    There this doctor will be. Disoriented, confused, afraid and unknowing why he is restrained as they put a mask over his face and inject him with a sedative.
