  1. Government Shutdown 2018

    Gonna miss his tee time.
  2. Government Shutdown 2018

    Lighten up. I was only joking. I don’t know about you, but I don’t “misremember” things. I forget.
  3. Government Shutdown 2018

    Misremembered? Dude you have a future in government! Or at least at the table in front of a Congressional Committee.
  4. This is horrific. The child torture case in California.

    No doubt the houses in the subdivision are close together, but it’s no city. I looked up the streets rating on Walkscore.com. It was “0” out of 100, which I had never seen before. In essence it means there is nothing that is within walking distance. Every trip to satisfy any need is by car.
  5. This is horrific. The child torture case in California.

    Yeah especially when the children were seen being marched back and forth through the night but most of them had never been seen in the daylight. But the thing about a subdivision in Perris and other unincorporated communities in the western “Inland Empire” (Riverside and San Bernardino Cos.) is that most of the working age folks are driving a hellish commute of 90 minutes or 2 hours each day to LA, SD, or Orange Co. A lot of them probably are rarely home during the week in daylight. Plus everyone is from somewhere else. It takes a village, and this ain’t no village.

    Anyone who calls Perris in Riverside County a city has never been there. It's a bottom-rung, semi-rural exurb of the worst kind.

    Thanks Obama...

    They should pass the bipartisan DACA deal and put in on Trump's desk. Even an overwhelming number of Trumpists support it. Do that and they'll definitely have the votes to keep the government running.
  9. Government Shutdown 2018

    "Republicans control the House, they control the Senate and they control the presidency," Vermont Sen. Pat Leahy told CNN on Tuesday. "The government stays open if they want it to stay open and shuts down if they want it to shut down." Yes, Leahy is a Democrat. But, smart Republicans know he's absolutely right. It's why Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky has repeatedly said -- in the face of these shutdown showdowns -- that "there's not going to be a government shutdown. It's just not going to happen." It's why Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, told The New York Times that "to believe that you can successfully blame Democrats for a shutdown over the DACA debate is naive." They should pass the bipartisan DACA deal and put in on Trump's desk. Do that and they'll definitely have the votes to keep the government running.
  10. New threat to Spotted Owl: Pot Production

    Yeah, baby! And the hijack started so simply and so immediately... It is a thing of beauty.
  11. I dated a woman a few years ago that was a math genius. Her specialty was radar and sonar research for a large defense contractor. She told me that the current generation of Chinese submarines are so quiet that they have been known to surface in the middle of US carrier groups undetected. Obviously not something that the DoD wants publicized.
  12. I know how to measure the cost of building one and the cost of replacing one.
  13. Well, don't get me started on my thought about our weapons development and procurement system...
  14. I agree with Navy spending. I just think we have far too many eggs in the carrier basket.
  15. Even if they work the vast majority of the time we face catastrophic losses. Carriers cost many billions and take years to build. We only have 10 so losing a few would be crippling.
