    Flake really needs a cognomen to take into retirement, to help people remember what a loser he was. An idea:

    Plenty of them are in our prisons. So if some are determined to be dangerous threats, then give them a pill sized transmitter powered by their own body with a simple quick surgery. I rare cases, the pill would also have some very powerful explosive in it.

  • Top 10 Reasons You Should Own An AR-15

    Why I don’t like the AR-15.

    1) Too flimsy and easy to break. It had to have been a design consideration, so that lost weapons would quickly degrade and become useless to an enemy.

    2) Its optimal use is outside, at mid range. Other rifles are better at long ranges; shotguns are better at mid to shorter ranges, pistols at short range; and a pistol-knife combo indoors.

    3) It is a bugger to clean properly. I remember long hours with toxic solvents and even dental picks to get out much of the hidden carbon. Comparatively, the AK-47 has only three field cleaned or serviced parts.

    4) It evokes a visceral response in fools who see you just carrying it. And tragically some of these fools are cops. While they will notice far deadlier weapons, they are less likely to freak out and shoot at you because of them.

    It’s important to review some of the details of the story.

    Doris Kearns Goodwin is *not* a historian. She is a “history writer”. Like “Bill Nye the science guy”, who only has a BS in mechanical engineering, and is *not* a scientist, the two of them should not be confused with professionals.

    The bottom line is that DKG is a “hanger-on” of the Democrats, and so her history writings do not conform to the rules of legitimate historical research.

    Any more than Al Gore is a climate scientist who invented the Internet.

    That sentence is ridiculous for the crime, even if all evidence pointed to it. However, the evidence for the defense was both objective and apparently ignored by the jury.

    So anything over just a few years will likely be overturned on appeal.

    Seriously, it is long past time for the US to ask China and Russia to build their own UN buildings, with the idea that the UN would move to one of them for 50 years, then the other one for 50 years. I doubt they could resist the offer.

    Then, after a hundred years of peace in the US, maybe we could persuade other nations to build their own UN buildings, like Somalia and Zimbabwe, etc.

    I thought I was clear that while there were some proper “cross training” subjects and electives, many universities are puffing their majors with required or required elective “crap” courses, often to cynically increase tuition, and/or to get kickbacks from those who make student loans.

    Culture and Identity
    Queer Musicology
    Ufology
    The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender, and Media
    How to Win a Beauty Pageant
    What If Harry Potter Is Real?
    Zombies in Popular Media
    Medieval Mystics of Europe
    The Joys of Garbage
    Vampire Studies
    Vampires: The Evolution of a Sexy Monster
    History of Beyonce
    Power Walking
    Critical Theory & Social Justice
    Demystifying the Hipster
    Transgender and Race
    Looking At Animals
    Rednecks, Queers, and Country Music
    Invented Languages: Klingon and Beyond

    Truly, if someone thinks these classes are useful, fine. Just don’t use taxpayer money or student loans to pay for them.

    A better idea is to “fix the broken” first.

    A doctor sees a 1,500 pound man at his home, because he cannot even fit out the door. The man tells the doctor that he wants an exercise regimen to make him a marathon runner.

    “Well, first you need to shed all your superfluous weight,” says the doctor.

    “Do I have to stop gorging myself? Can’t a just add some food to my diet that will make me more athletic?”

    This is the basic problem with universities today. If they just slice off the gigantic rolls of fat, they will have lots of money to concentrate on helping students learn things they need. But they refuse to do it on their own.

    So start with their states’ legislature. Make a list of the degrees the university offers, and how many graduates with those degrees are placed in degree related jobs in six months or a year.

    If they aren’t getting good jobs, no longer fund those degrees. And prohibit students from taking loans to pay for such degrees. And fire faculty and staff involved with those degrees.

    So goodbye, ethnic and gender studies, etc.

    Once they take out entire majors, then focus on non-critical but mandatory courses for the remaining majors. What good is a 4-year degree if you have to waste a year and a half of it on indoctrination and socialization? Dispense with those expensive wastes.

    I wish there was a study comparing the business first wealthy types support for below market cheap labor, with the business first wealthy types who supported free labor slavery before the US Civil War.

    The Republican party was created in rejection of these wealthy business first types.

  • Et tu Tucker?

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to Sean_Anthony

    Remember that FOX News has changed hands, and is now under the management of one of Murdoch’s far more liberal sons, James, who hopes to turn it into another CNN. So maybe Tucker Carlson is feeling the heat, that if he doesn’t “liberal it down” he might end up like his predecessor Bill O’Reilly.

    The proof of this will be if conservatives like Sean Hannity, Judge Jeanine Pirro and Jessie Watters are sacked by James. Followed by the sacking of their more objective ones like Shannon Bream; while elevating that anti-Trump tool Shepard Smith.

    Apparently James Murdoch is a big believer in MMGW and other bogus internationalist b.s.

    But, on the plus side, if FOX News drinks the Flavor-Aid, so all the media are knee-jerk leftists, then maybe it will finally force the Republicans to initiate antitrust actions against the giant media companies.

    https://emergency.cdc.gov/agent/phosgene/basics/facts.asp

    (CDC) Immediate signs and symptoms of phosgene exposure

    During or immediately after exposure to dangerous concentrations of phosgene, the following signs and symptoms may develop:

    Coughing
    Burning sensation in the throat and eyes
    Watery eyes
    Blurred vision
    Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
    Nausea and vomiting
    Skin contact can result in lesions similar to those from
    frostbite or burns
    Following exposure to high concentrations of phosgene, a
    person may develop fluid in the lungs (pulmonary edema)
    within 2 to 6 hours.
    Exposure to phosgene may cause delayed effects that may
    not be apparent for up to 48 hours after exposure, even if
    the person feels better or appears well following removal
    from exposure. Therefore, people who have been exposed to
    phosgene should be monitored for 48 hours afterward.

    Delayed effects that can appear for up to 48 hours include
    the following:

    Difficulty breathing
    Coughing up white to pink-tinged fluid (a sign of pulmonary
    edema)
    Low blood pressure
    Heart failure

    —>Showing these signs or symptoms does not necessarily mean that a person has been exposed to phosgene.<—

  • Trump’s nominations of Barr, Nauert already running into Dem buzz saw

    Yes, but with a mountain of a mess, and a vast number of criminal Democrats running around without threat, is just being a conservative enough?

    That is, we need a pit bull conservative, who will convene a lot of grand juries around the US and start issuing indictments to all these creeps, *while* at the same time purging corrupt Justice, State, IRS, ATF, NOAA, and even Pentagon officials.

    Seriously, he needs to ride herd on federal prosecutors across the US so that these scoundrels have no choice but to permanently flee the US and federal marshals to stay out of prison.

    He needs to be President Trump’s sword, *on top of* a huge amount of regular federal prosecutions that are horribly backlogged because of former presidents.

    This is why there was such a collective groan when Sessions proposed restarting the drug war. Because it was putting a tourniquet on the only limb that was *not* bleeding profusely. A profound waste of money and effort at a time when we desperately need *political* law and order.

    And Sessions never did “get around” to doing what needed to be done.

    The UN ambassador isn’t particularly important, but I wonder if this “bipartisan” William Barr is intended to be a blood sacrifice? Seriously, after Jeff “the weakling” Sessions, you would hope that President Trump would get the message, to nominate a real hard ass who would purge the Justice Department and then start issuing indictments like crazy against all the big name Democrats who have flouted the law with total impunity.

    He could run federal grand juries around the clock for years to put dozens of scoundrels in prison. But first he must be confirmed as Attorney General. Barr is just too establishment to rock the boat by doing thing like indicting Democrats for breaking the law.

    So what I figure is that President Trump would put up this Barr guy during the lame duck session, calculating that the Democrats the RINOs and the turd ball Jeff Flake would vote against him. This would tick off the incoming senate so that the next Republican senate would be rock solid in favor of the hard ass real nominee.

    Johnston Atoll is an unincorporated territory of the United States currently administered by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. It has been enlarged by the US to a surface area of just over 1 square mile. It could likely be enlarged to over 10 square miles.

    If foreign criminals were then put there, at the same population density as Macao, of 55,000 per square mile, the atoll could hold some half a million or more. This would do much to persuade such criminals to avoid the US as a destination.
