I'm less concerned about the impact of technology and far more concerned by the rise of stupidity in this country. We are becoming Idiocracy more and more every day.

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.

MacYoung's comments are accurate. The initial article is the typical ignorance you hear from those with no idea what they are talking about. The US will generally deploy a tactical team with less lethal weaponry as well as lethal overwatch and try to avoid using deadly force.

It's one thing when you have something of a contained situation where time permits having a team with the tools to handle an EDP/CIT call. It's another when you have two patrol officers being charged with a  knife by an aggressor.

If your loved one is bleeding out at the scene of a violent crime, wouldn't it be nice for your local law enforcement agency to have the equipment and training to rescue that loved one while the bullets are still flying and they still have a chance at survival?

Listening to Radley Balko on law enforcement is like listening to Rev. Sharpton on anything. Their agendas have nothing to do with the truth.

And, I know you've said that we should never trust HuffPo, but within hours of you posting the quoted article, I received this from a person who knows stuff: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-l-grenier/senate-rdi-report-lies-obfuscation_b_5663595.html

Weird that a former director of the CIA CTC would publish in a completely "untrustworthy" source.

Yeah, actually it is weird, especially when you look at the other Huffpo stories that pop up next to it. Such as the performance artist that is going to sleep with a different man every day for a year.
