24 Is there anything more pathetic than a backstabbing traitor of a SOH blubbering like a little girl and waving a box of hankies as he walks out the door? John Boehner is a disgrace. Paul Ryan will be no better. And I find it interesting now that they've pretty much made themselves and congress irrelevant for the next 2 years they are going to go back to regular order. And the Freedom Caucus is a fraud much like the rest of the GOP.

27 Breitbart ran an interview with Trump (yesterday, I think) in which he restated him immigration views. Which have not changed.

I find it amusing that the GOPe media are happily adopting the Democrat tactic of assigning their own interpretations, factual or otherwise (mostly "otherwise"), to the words of candidates they don't approve of. I have noticed an increase in Trump posts written in a condescending, disapproving tone that take his statements out of context in hopes of stirring up a frenzy.

Anyway, read what he actually said yourself: http://bit.ly/1WkKfn1

Now that the Witches of Salem seem to be waddling toward Rubio, it would be nice if some site, somewhere, would report and opine on ALL candidates without putting words in their mouths.

Six months after hitting the market with a $29 million price tag, the Pontiac Silverdome is out of time. The property's owner has shifted strategies and is now preparing to tear down the empty and battered 40-year-old stadium next year in the belief that the 127-acre site would be more marketable without the Silverdome than with it.

Triple Investment Group bought the Silverdome in 2009 at auction from the city of Pontiac for $583,000.

DetNews


The Silverdome sold for the price of a 2+2 condo in Studio City.

*shakes head*

And getting kinda ambitious on the profit margin there, guys.

Amazing that they didn't throw in the rest of the city of Pontiac as a deal sweetener.

Bicoastal finance types who normally shun "flyover country" continue to speak in excited cocaine-fueled logorrhea about the magical wonderful amazing potential Rust Belt resurgence where they've scooped up cheap property.

A resurgence which never actually happens in reality, because of the terminally fucked-up politics, economics and demographics of the Rust Belt.

I'm sure that sooner or later someone in an office in midtown Manhattan is going to emit a bunch of blather about how Gary, Indiana is going to be America's next big boomtown. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

75 Smart, Military: It now appears that any future surprise attack on the Eastern Seaboard will be preceded by a flight of Spad biplanes. To take out our airships.

F-15 pilots who have flown in "formation" with P-51's report that they hope they are never called on to dogfight against one. Take out the Mavericks, and it's advantage Mustang. Take out the speed factor, and Mustangs would have their hands full with Fokkers. Also, biplanes are STOL. Q.E.D.

I have asserted for decades that there is no combat technology, to include pikes, in which the United States does not need to maintain a basic competence. Keep in mind that when USAF Special Forces (hereinafter referred as "Air Force Cavalry") invaded Afghanistan, they had to borrow wooden saddles from the locals. Our stocks of perfectly good McClellans at Fort Riley, once the largest stockpile in Jane's, had been sold off as surplus. See what happens?

Now touch off boilers one though three, and make ready for sea. Black gang to the coal bunker.

The next time that I'm grandly pontificating with simplistic bromides on subjects that I've never studied in any depth or detail, and after I've made a huge ass out of myself by multiply contradicting my own previous statements, I do hope that someone will dignify the resulting hot mess for me by referring to me as having "strayed from my own orthodoxy".

That'd be great.

One thing that has interested me -- aside from the smaller/more maneuverable fighter vs. the bigger/faster-in-straight-line fighter -- is the psychological aspect of waging war with some of the older technology.

What do enemy on the ground think and do when they see a sky filled with hundreds of B-29s, or a flight of Mustangs coming at them at treetop level? Is that not going to get the wind up them more than some tiny speck of a B2 or an invisible missile?

Yes, Ryan's family has always lived in Janesville.  I think all of his brothers and sisters still live there too.  Priebus lives pretty much next door to the Lutheran high school where Little Winger went, which is a good hour away.  I think he moved there from out East somewhere when he was around 7 or 8.  Janesville is a good distance away.  Priebus is Greek Orthodox and Ryan is Catholic, so I don't know how their paths would have crossed in childhood.


I do believe they came across each other in their early twenties, but that is just something I heard in passing.  Nothing confirmed.  The three of them, Walker, Ryan and Priebus are in roughly the same age range.

You couldn't come up with one either. Well, unless you cheated and decided "taking money from it" is a commitment to constitutional government....

IMO, your first mistake is thinking that all Trump supporters are breathless, doe-eyed worshipers of the guy. We're not. I'm not. I know damn well the guy has more faults than Los Angeles County.

But he is saying things I like, and he has a record of accomplishing real stuff, which can't be said of any other wannabe Preezys.

I agree he is an opportunist. You don't accumulate the wealth he has by not taking the opportunities when they come around.

I disagree with you when you say " I don't believe he believes anything he says."
I believe he will keep what few promises he makes. Look at his site, He doesn't have a whole lot of them. Just 3 to my knowledge.

Have you done any research on those he has done business with? What do they say about Trump keeping his word?

257 For real, yo? Yeppers. Had it for years. And FS, I guess I am quietly preaching something. I never gave it a second thought until about ten years ago when someone axed me if I was a Christian. I'd never been axed that before and I was a little taken aback, but I don't know why. I guess I'd never really thought about it before, but yeah, I am. I came out as a Christian and haven't looked back or regretted it. I just hope The Big Guy considers me one when it's my time to hop on that express elevator to St. Peter's Gates.

Wiki says he attended both Catholic schools in Kenosha, and also a progressive school here.  I'm trying to think what school would have been labeled "progressive" here in the 70's.  Of course they're all left-wing child abuse factories now, but I can't remember a school that would have been advertised as specifically progressive.

276 Martin Luther was one of those people who took the Bible so literally that he felt that in some obscure scriptural passage reference was made to the sun revolving around the earth. Meanwhile, scientists of the day were proving just the opposite. He called for them to be burned at the stake as heretics. So he gets one thumb up, one thumb down in my book.

277 My dilemma with Rubio is that I trust him even less than I trust any politician (and I trust the average politician about as much as I'd trust Bill Clinton to babysit my fat teenage daughter if I had one). On the other hand, I think he has a better chance of beating Hillary than most any of the other guys.

278 Posted by: Ricardo Kill at October 30, 2015 09:00 AM (JOvCl) Well, he wasn't initially intending to. That was a common practice-to set ideas for discussion in a public place. It was intended for debate/.discussion just among his colleagues at the university. He posted them in Latin which the common people didn't read. However, people living in the town got a hold of them, translated them into German and with the printing press the rest is history. I do think that if Luther hadn't taken that step someone would have. It's not as if the Reformation began with Luther.

Correct.  John Hus was burned at the stake about a hundred years or so before Luther.  He was burned at the stake.  There were others too.  Time to dig out my Foxe's Book of Martyrs.  My memory isn't what it used to be.  For instance, was Wycliffe before or after.



Need to dig.

285 I celebrate both-Reformation Day and All Saints Day although not being a RC I think of "all Saints" as followers of Jesus-not just people who have been canonized. We do, however light candles in the church in remembrance of people who shared the Christian faith with us who have gone to be with the Lord. All Saint's day is a lovely holy day, whether you're a RC or not.

Thanks Fenelon.  I hadn't started searching yet.  What a legacy Wycliffe has to this day.  I've known a few Wycliffe Bible translators and missionaries.  My own Aunt went to New Guinea with Wycliffe.
