I'm all about saving money, but one shouldn't go to cheap when it comes to firearms.

If global warming is so clearly happening, why the need to falsify data? Why have all the dire predictions failed to appear?

Mine either, but if you can shake a handgun and get it to fire without manipulating the trigger, it's a bad thing.

I suspect the currents called gyres are already there and the mechanism that gets the plastic there is human laziness and stupidity.

No one on the west coast has been dumping bulk garbage into the water for more than 50 years, right?

What sort of impact would a plastic bag ban actually accomplish?

Did Levin write those two pieces? I don't think he did.

My bad. His name on them is probably meaningless.

His name is not on them. If you'll copy and paste the headlines of those two articles above into google, you'll find that those two articles are from abcnews.go.com. You'll find the actual authors of the two articles, neither of whom are Mark Levin.

You'll also note that the Marklevinshow.com website is actually owned by Cumulus Media inc, who also happens to own WABC 770 in New York City, the Levin show flagship station. So it's pretty doubtful that Mr. Levin vetts the news stories fed to the media company owned website by a widget some web master coded into it.

Glad to help you out with this. If you need more help in performing due diligence on information sources, just ask.

If we had taken out Assad like Buraq like wanted to before Putin linked him out, IS would own all of Syria by now.

1)  There are two methods "palmistry" and "hand reading".  The two are quite distinct.  I learned a fair amount of the latter from Top Dog.  It was, and presumably still is, wonderful for picking up girls.

Amongst Carl Jung's various theories was one which said the people have four basic functions of which one is dominant:  Thinking (about 10% of the population IIRC) feeling (about 60%?) sensation, and intuition and are either introverted or extroverted.  This makes for 8 basic personality types, and as the theory is fleshed out it becomes 16 or 32.  (The Briggs-Meyer personality test and various others are based upon this work)

From the sound of your description, you are an introvert.

(Tangent:  In our hands, usually there are three major lines.  Do the bottom and middle line come together or not?)


INTJ and palm reading is silly.

Russia Opens 3rd Front With a New Offensive, Ukrainian and Western Officials Say

Tanks, artillery and infantry have crossed from Russia into an unbreached part of eastern Ukraine in recent days, attacking Ukrainian forces and causing panic and wholesale retreat not only in the small border town of Novoazovsk but a wide swath of territory, in what Ukrainian and Western military officials are calling a stealth invasion.

The attacks outside Novoazovsk and in an area to the north essentially have opened a new, third front in the war in eastern Ukraine between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian separatists, along with the fighting outside the cities of Donetsk and Luhansk.

I agree. 

IMHO the American people correctly assess that we are led by fools; a coherent strategy led by a capable leader might well be a different thing though-- I do think ISIL's recent efforts have clarified a lot of people's thinking.



I doubt we'll  have a capable leader anytime soon. Even then, we won't have a shift until IS racks up a serious domestic body count.

An effort to think things through:

http://nationalinterest.org/feature/five-step-plan-destroy-the-islamic-state-11121

Mobilize a Major Humanitarian-Relief Effort:

Catalyze Settlements to Unify Anti-IS Groups in Iraq and Syria:

Field Robust Supporting Military Operations:

Internationalize the Anti-IS Effort:

Prepare the American People for a Costly, Long-Term Mission:

Questions from me:  Is the era of Sykes-Picot over?  Can any strategy that does not address the flaws of Sykes Picot succeed?  What would moving beyond Sykes-Picot look like?  My proffered strategy of supporting an independent Kurdistan (and establishing alliance with and a base or two there) moves us in this direction.   My proffered strategy leaves Iran to pick up more of the burden of fighting ISIL and the bases in Kurdistan would add weight to our words in nuke negotiations with Iran.


The American people have no interest in the above. Some token strikes are about the best we are going to get.

http://www.fee.org/the_freeman/detail/by-the-numbers-how-dangerous-is-it-to-be-a-cop

"It's twice as dangerous to be a truck driver as a cop."

We can discuss the numbers (as I am not fully convinced by this article), but it is an interesting look.

Death by auto accident or being shot in the face performing a traffic stop are equally dead, but  equipment, training and technology have reduced the death rates for most every occupation, including law enforcement officers.  Some of this equipment fuels the bogus "militarization" claim.

Though it's not usually fatal, law enforcement is on the receiving end of a lot of violence and trauma.  Most people are stressed by public speaking. Law enforcement officers faces stressors much worse on a regular basis.
