  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    Re: USA 2020 Election For my fellow USAians who are also concerned about the election: The best bet to avoid or minimize El Cheeto Grande's plans to subvert the election is to vote early. According to this article by Reuters,...
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    CJ Cherryh posted an interesting article today on FB regarding a sail-powered auto carrier in prototype from Sweden. [[ link fix - ahb ]]...
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    Charlie @309: Some people are expressing the idea that El Cheeto Grande should face legal consequences for his acts while in office....
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    Greg @308: Judges at the Federal level in the USA are supposed to be led by the law, not politics (stop snickering!). Part of the rationale for lifetime appointments is to divorce them from the process of seeking reelection. Many...

    @304: Then, it takes time to wind down an administration, and crank up a new one, the larger, the longer. Even in corporations there's a transition period. Absolutely agree. Although not part of the Framers' intent, a key part of...
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    JBS @180: I wonder if there even is an actual bonafide middle-eastern terrorist supporter in the U.S. who is not an under-cover FBI agent or informant? Three thoughts: - Even wanna-be terrorists need food and shelter; they may be busy...
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    I do not want El Cheeto Grande to die prior to the election - I want him to lose badly and then go on to a string of lawsuits and prosecutions that lead to a long, miserable road to his...
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    OP: Charlie, I nearly did a spit take with my morning coffee when you referred to the U.S. Intelligence Community as an organization - it's more like a herd of feuding siblings, arguing with each other and competing for Daddy's...

    Me @1597: Oops, typo. 1597 was meant to refer to 1596. Need more whiskey....
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Me @ 1497: Just for giggles, here's a video of USMC M-1s doing drifts on an ice test track in Norway. Boys with toys, don't you know....
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Me @1595: It might also be of interest to the group that the USMC has an ongoing relationship with Norway, having conducted multiple training deployments and practicing using the pre-positioned (in caverns, no less) gear for a Marine Expeditionary Brigade...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    JBS @1575: Why the 10th Mountain at Ft. Drum? C'mon, you were in uniform for a while, yet you seem to be asking as though the Army applies logic to issues like that - clearly not the case. The real...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    JBS @1548: Re - mules and Ain't no unions in the Army, not even in the Union Army. But the U.S. Army has had, as a traditional role through at least the end of WWII, muleskinners. Here's the story of...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    @1542: After learning the hard way that my first new car, a 1980 Ford Mustang with the lowly 2.3 liter I4, was NOT to be trusted on snow, even with snow tires, I became a firm believer in front wheel...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    JBS @1516: Thanks. I ask because I have not yet owned a 4X4. The spouse and I lived in Colorado Springs for twenty years, and are likely to go back to retire in Colorado, probably in Grand Junction to be...

    JBS @1477: I'd still like to know your opinion on Jeep models....
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Re: Recreational Vehicles I don't know if you non-USAians share the Class A, B, C convention on classes of RVs. We saw a number of Class B RVs on the road in Germany, along with travel trailers, often towed by...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Speaking of dead plots, pretty much everything in Atlas Shrugged is deader than a doornail: the "great creator" theory, unfettered capitalism, the ascendance of individualism. Yeah, that last one has done SO well for us in the USA....
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Scott @1419: I was kinda hoping for Leavenworth, but that would have to be the result of a Federal felony conviction. Well, maybe in a few years . . . ....
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Me @1402: A news blackout on an imprisoned Orange Shitgibbon and his henchmen/enablers would also be a public good; it would certainly lower my blood pressure....
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Re: Appropriate punishment for El Cheeto Grande. He clearly cherishes attention and adulation, particularly of the public variety. Should he eventually be prosecuted and found guilty of some of his many crimes pre-2017, I for one would love to see...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    @1243: Re - wiping hard drives I've accumulated a number of drives over the years, and also thought about how to check them for data and sanitize them. I saw an ad for this device, which looks like a useful...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    @1248: Re - National Guard When I left active duty way back in 1988, one decision I had to make was whether to join the Reserves or the National Guard. I went with the Reserves in part due to the...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Paul @1214: An actual civil war is likely to be very complicated. Various National Guard units will come down on one side or the other, and probably spend most of their ammunition fighting each other. Well crap. I was going...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Greg @894: Re - "sin" You are assigning to me religious beliefs I have not expressed. What or whether I believe in any form of divinity is, frankly, none of your business. If you look at my prior comments, I...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Re: Slavery thread My comments @766 and subsequent were not intended to deny or deflect blame for the crime against humanity of USAian slavery. They were intended to point out that this crime did not originate in 1776, nor was...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Re: L. Ron Hubbard I never had any desire to read his reportedly pulpy trash, but I did make the mistake of seeing the "Battlefield Earth" movie. DO NOT SEE THIS MOVIE! Especially if you value the experience of seeing...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    @777: At least some of them should have been imprisoned, particularly the former Senators, Representatives & U.S. Army officers who joined the Confederacy and conspired to make war on the United States. Fully agree. But then again, I'm one of...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Me @766: And this applies, of course, to Central and South America as well....
  • Commented on Dead plots
    @759: Let's face it - ALL European activity in North America was imperially-driven colonial exploitation, driven as much for any other reason as enriching the home country by extracting value from the "New World". Spanish, French, and British colonization all,...
