The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

I defy you to find something that government does better than the private sector.

These incompetent crooks should be run out of town on a rail, but the good people of Seattle have become so inured to bloated, stupid, corrupt and illogical officialdom that they truly believe that it is an unavoidable byproduct of their progressive desires. That makes them as stupid as their government masters.

Ain't socialism grand!
The Trolley Problem: New Seattle Streetcars May Not Fit on Tracks

Seattle, it seems, has a trolley problem. The city ordered streetcars for an expansion of its growing system that may not, according to a new Seattle Times report, fit on the tracks or fit into maintenance barns. Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, elected last fall following a long-ago sexual assault scandal that forced the previous mayor to resign, had already put a halt to the buildout after escalating costs were discovered.

The expansion was originally budgeted at $150 million, but that figure soon rose to $200 million, in part due to public utility work that wasn't predicted in the initial budget and rising costs for construction and labor in Seattle. But in March, the Times reported that operating costs would be 50% higher than the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) had estimated--$24 million a year, rather than $16 million. The regional transit authority, King Country Metro, disclosed this and debated it in internal memos that the Times obtained through a public-records request. An independent review for the city is in progress, and a deadline for its completion and release went by in June.


"Measure, measure, cut." I learned that as a carpenter's assistant, just out of college. On my first day. Clearly, at that tender age I was more highly trained and competent than the Seattle mandarins who gleefully spend other people's money with very little regard and absolutely no fear that they will be held financially responsible for their monumental screw-ups. What a life!
******

This is happening all over the country, and it is a very bad trend. It reminds me of the Luddites, only more evil.


If anyone wants to see this insanity on a grand scale, just try to drive through Manhattan, which has become, courtesy of Bloomberg and DeBlasio (my spellcheck wants to change that to "delusional!"), an impenetrable maze of bike lanes and pedestrian malls and narrow streets and gridlock.

63 The Trolley Problem: New Seattle Streetcars May Not Fit on Tracks
There is Standard Gauge on most rail systems, and there is Broad Gauge on some "high speed" rail systems like the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART). What was so damn hard for Seattle to understand?

Posted by: Curmudgeon at July 26, 2018 06:09 AM (ujg0T)

64 Heh. The RTD in Denver once published a white paper to get funding for a new rail project. Claimed they could use eminent domain to secure track frontage from BNSF. Under the railroad laws, this turned out to be "NOT A FACT," and BNSF was sufficiently incensed to hit RTD with an absolutely brutal fee, so the project ran hundreds of millions into the red before a shovel hit the dirt. I think it was the "W" line, but it might have been one of the other lines we always build and never complete here.

The trouble with privateers is that they do nothing to stop the enemy's fleet. The closest to success was Louis XIV's privateers, but they were actually a combination of private and government. War is precisely what government does best. It should, with thousands of years of experience.

107 I think the government does war better than the private sector. Except for the Navy. I'd say the results in that last category are pretty damn good. I'm guessing he is thinking of privateers. Privateers are pretty good at capturing enemy merchant shipping, but poor at destroying enemy warships. Little incentive to risk your life for no profit when you could be making money with little risk.

110 In the urban areas I've been in I've seen a different bit of traffic planning insanity.

The jobs are all in the cities. No one wants to (or can afford to) live in the city though.

So the suburbs right outside of the cities have gotten wealthier and wealthier. Because they are wealthy they've managed to stop any significant expansion of roads into the city - after all if you want a shorter commute, and to raise my property values, you should pay to live where I live....right plebes?

And then came Waze and Google Maps. Since the wealthy liberals have made sure the arteries into the city are stopped at rush hour people now routinely drive through the wealth suburbs and their "quaint" downtowns so they are now just as blocked as the arteries.

HAHAHAHAHA it makes me feel so good to see them whine about it.

117 Houston's affirmative action city and liberal council pushed through a kick back rail system that is the most idiotic money loser , ill planned system they could come up with . Besides the tracks being the antithesis of what is needed in a flood prone area, the layout requires vehicles to sit on the track while waiting to turn left as the driver can see the lights of the train heading for them. Of course the number of riders doesn't pay for its operation much less for its billion dollar price tag.

159 This is happening all over the country, and it is a very bad trend. It reminds me of the Luddites, only more evil. If anyone wants to see this insanity on a grand scale, just try to drive through Manhattan, which has become, courtesy of Bloomberg and DeBlasio (my spellcheck wants to change that to "delusional!"), an impenetrable maze of bike lanes and pedestrian malls and narrow streets and gridlock.
This is what I call the "Butt-Plug Mentality". Traffic Luddities, often of the alternative lifestyle persuasion (since families really prefer the burbs) want to build more housing downtown and want more people to move downtown, but then they constipate the streets, in the vain belief that this will force people to ride unicycles everywhere. Cement barriers in the centers of once passable streets, which really are metaphoric "butt plugs", "corner chokers" that prevent quick right or left turns on or onto one-way streets, and those stupid posts that remove vehicle lanes and create unused bike lanes are all examples of road sodomy and traffic constipation. Never mind that even if your downtown becomes "Walkable", people will still use cars to drive to other parts of the city, or drive to other cities, so traffic in the new "pedestrian or bike friendly" downtowns will *still increase* nonetheless. But these people think with their prostates and anuses, not with their minds. Removing these stupid obstructions would give these downtowns a much needed "traffic enema", and I would think, given the demographics of the "New Urbanists", they would understand that.

Where have I heard this before? Oh yes when the US Army got new toys.

M-2/M-3 Bradley could not fit in a C-141 unless the tracks and side-skirts were removed. Luckily the C-17 came along.

Even more fortuitous and proving the Army never learns history, Rumsfeld killed the Crusader SPH before the Air Force calculations were proved true that it would require a large chunk of the C-17 fleet just to airlift four Crusaders and their support equipment and an Army load-out plan that would endanger the C-17s.

202 They probably got the specs, immediately recognized that they were off, and laughed their asses off. Then they started cranking out streetcars. This is exactly what happened. One of the articles I read yesterday said the city had no contractual way out of the deal. It's also one of those situations that make you suspect the entire thing is an exercise in blue money grubbing. For those who did not watch the second season of True Detective on HBO, I recommend it. It is a stinging indictment of the never ending California high speed rail cost increases and the graft that underlies them.

Before the Napoleonic wars I believe the perfected allotment was a mix. Mercs are somewhat unreliable, but generally provide a much needed punch. And if you surround your mercs with your levees they are probably going to not run/change sides/sit on their asses demanding more money as was often the case in merc heavy/exclusive armies.

After levee in mass though I don't think mercs have been particularly successful though...

But...it actually is.

The National Socialist model supports massive graft for people tied to the regime. But it mostly works.

The International Socialist model has no graft (in this sense) and doesn't work at all.

So if you want socialism your choices are live like a Chinese peasant in 1955 or a German worker drone in 1938. And one of those is strongly preferable to the other...

imo Corruption is often covered up with a shrug of "mistakes happen".  When there is big money made off the mistake, it is probably corruption.

BigGovMafia the same ... Hillary's "wipe it like with a cloth, it's all so confusing" or "I thought the c was for alphabetizing" ... is pure incompetence smoke screen for probably the most massive deliberate fraud/sedition/coup in our history.

"They" always need some lame excuse, or if it is the FBI they go even further to fabricate intricate malicious excuses ... the fake DNC dossier, to the (complicit?) FISC judges, etc.  all very elaborate cover ... NOT incompetence.  It is the FBI using every tool they have to take down the president, not just "mistakes were made".

286 A few years back, Seattle decided they needed new snow plows so they put out a tender for them. Million$ of course for a couple new plows. Meanwhile across the Lake, Bellevue (Conservative city) also was buying new plows. They did their homework and discovered they could pick up nearly a dozen used ones that worked just fine and didn't bust the budget. Next winter, Seattle is unable to meet the demands for their snow plows and ask...then DEMAND...that Bellevue give them priority on their plows. After all, they are Seattle and vital to the economic health of the Region. IIRC, Bellevue told them to stick it...and once they were finished, Seattle was allowed to rent the Bellevue used plows. Gwad. If it weren't for the Mariners, I'd never go to that city.

Doubtful.

But it gets better.  Most of Paul's letters were written from prison.So the Roman method of prison letter censorship is a foundational force in Christianity according to practicing Catholic "Miss Lube Rack of 1959."

Then the new boiler was being winched into its bay and they figured out it was six feet longer than the old one and wouldn't fit into the building. Much finger pointing ensued. One story my 'ol man had from WWII. he was a Chief on subs. Egg heads (his term) had come out to Pearl to measure the hatches on the subs to make sure a new computer for firing solutions would fit into the subs. They went away and built their computer. they returned a few months later and sure enough had these big 24 inch square computers to fit into a 24 inch circular hatch. They eventually used the torp loading hatch to get them in the boats.

It was. That's what I was referring to. And while the money came from the government most of the work came from universities and university spinoff companies like BBN. In fact, the idea behind ARPANET came from BBN in Cambridge, MA back in the 60s. They also invented the modem, sent the first email, etc. Some of the key people were given temporary government appointments but it really was a private sector effort.

Different track gauges. What they did (and may still do) was have everyone get off the train, then unbolted the cars and switched them to a different set of trucks. There's your answer, Seattle.

Which is why when the press try to pin Trump down he just says what he wants to say and ignores the question. And I do agree with the characterization that the impeachment articles is a stunt by the HFC. Congress is going on recess for a month after today and Ryan was never going to bring this to the floor during the runup to the midterms. The HFC is just another of the GOP cons. The GOP is a useless pile of dog shit. Paul Ryan is a useless pile of whale shit. The HFC are the fleas that feed on the shit.

If the electorate had instead voted in Moore and told the FNM they don't care what scandals get manufactured I think we would have seen a lot more courage among the easily blackmailed...

440 Yeah... when 90% of known deaths happened without physical contact or intention to kill anyone, it doesn't count as genocide... it's just a damn disaster.

***

The conquest of Mexico is especially enlightening.

Cortez gets told not to go to Mexico. Goes to Mexico. Finds that most of other tribes hate the Aztecs and the latter are ripe for conquest.

Spain sends an ARMY to stop Cortez. Cortez convinces them to join him instead.

Cortez, his new army, and his Indian allies destroy the Aztec empire.

One member of the army had...small pox. Which spread throughout central America.

How on earth one could consider the spread of disease, which was responsible for the vast majority of the deaths, to be deliberate is amazing.

And if the Aztecs hadn't been mass murdering savages their empire would have survived too...

Posted by: Jane D'oh at July 26, 2018 07:08 AM (ptqGC)

462 Actually CBD the correct answer is that there are private goods and public goods, which is mostly a question of demand (isn't a "market" demand for something that nonetheless is needed/useful). And even most of those are met through the private sector (nuclear submarines - no private demand, even though I'd love one if I could afford it - but private sector produces almost the entire thing). Just for an instant condensed version of the argument, I'd say the main problem is two things: * far too many goods/service are incorrectly treated as public goods (health care - for the non-indigent - being the worst/most damaging error in this category) * collapse of competence and public service mentality in implementing even those things that are truly, or substantially, public goods (the Seattle trolley is folley from start to finish, probably, leave alone the obvious disaster being discussed - but the interstate highway system, much public infrastructure such as hydro dams and water systems in the west, and even services like public education - in the 50s/60s, in CA, for example - were done very well)

Stefan also points out that even a tiny bit of inter marriage accounts for "where the rest of them went".

He doesn't cover this so much, but I recently saw how Mexico/Central America even now is largely run by whites and whites that married natives.  (usually the white man took a native wife).  USA probably has more mixing than most places ... but it is hard to discuss it openly.  I blame radical leftist shit stirrers and community dis-organizers.

Molyneux can take on the subject since he seems mostly detached from the religious aspects that tend to go hand in hand.  But in general Christianity/Judaism gets attacked along with the WhiteGuilt thang -- all a vital part of Western Civilization.

Take the bad with the good, I thought. I even understood and forgave the "Send them back to Africa" comments, as just rantings and venting of frustrated White people trapped in certain cities. However, when they start getting into how the Joooz secretly control everything, they lose contact with reality and they get truly scary.

Here's a prediction for you. Either: 1. The NeverTrumper GOPee will learn to shut up, bide their time, and wait for Trump to pass, and then mount a challenge for the President in 2024. By then Geroge P. Bush, latest member of the dynasty, will have matured enough. This has precedent. There have been fights between RINOs and more hardcore Republicans since Teddy Roosevelt vs. Taft, and then Dewey vs. Taft Junior, then Rockefeller vs. Goldwater, then Bush the Elder Vs. Reagan. Either the party learned to compromise between the two, or one faction stayed home in disgust. or: 2. The NeverTrumper GOPee, after the Demunists completely implode from going full bore Commiecrat, will *try to take over* what is left of the Democrat Party.

564 "I even understood and forgave the "Send them back to Africa" comments, as just rantings and venting of frustrated White people trapped in certain cities."
I've got Takimag bookmarked and have been there maybe twice in the last year, and can't even see their comments. 

imo there are probably not many real commenters saying "send them back to Africa".  Who is really saying that, except the fakes, SJWs that go around and pollute every site and dominate comments on HuffPo or even more legit (but still left) sites.

Soros (probably) has 1000 trolls that spend all day mucking up any decent site, not to mention the unpaid hysterical trolls that get off on such crap. 

I've tried to have a rational debate on something simple like gun control (after a big shooting) and the trolls outnumber everyone else ... call me a Russian bot, call me everything ... mocking idiocy, the whole thing.  So I wouldn't assign the comments to Takimag ... but like I said, I don't read them.

While some of that may be happening, as the Control Urge is strong among Leftists, and so is the peevish desire to punish drivers in the name of Mother Gaia pagan goddess, the New Religion for the self-proclaimed Atheists, there is also the simple narrow interests of the "New Urbanists". When I see where these moves are taking place, they are all happening in *gentrifying inner cities*. What kind of people live in or are moving to those areas? People who don't need to drive as much. People without families. --Teh Gheyz (NTTAWWT). --"Empty Nesters". --Retirees. --Students. --Young and (still for now) single professionals. In short, the Gays, the "Grays", and the "Todays". These people don't consider other people from the burbs might need to commute downtown to work, so they only think with their narrow interests.

I think some were WASPs (Women's Auxiliary Service Pilots?). There are some good photos of small groups of WASPs in uniform standing in front of B-25s etc they've just delivered. Don't know if it's ever been solved - a famous case where a woman ferry pilot took off from what is know LAX in her P-51 Mustang (they were built nearby in Hawthorne) - after one radio check-in, nothing. Never heard from again. Can't recall details, I think there was reason to think she hadn't gotten far, but searches of the generally flat/sandy bottom west of LAX had not yielded any results.

In my experience in Denver, they intentionally make car ownership in the city difficult as a way to "nudge" people into using other forms of transportation.

This is the "never let a crisis go to waste" - no wait, "create the crisis!" thinking of big city Lefties.

Panzerfaust, Panzerschreck, and the Soviet anti-tank rifles (the infantry's anti-armor weapons) were not able to defeat main armor, but obviously could damage tracks or weak spots. And WWII tanks when disabled were not all that capable, at least in terms of a dynamic battlefield. Their optics and weaponry were not like today's.

Clapper seems to be flipping (to save his own hide?) and maybe things will come to a head.  If Mueller goes further toward mobster and starts raiding others, all bets are off ... or if he plans to stick around past the election, to hamper 2020, not just 2018 ... there may be a massacre.

634 Curmudgeon, no doubt, really. Add to that the de-industrialization, more generally, of CA (and much of the USA, obviously), and its replacement by high-end service or tech - which brought a yuuge generational and mindset change. The era of Reagan's CA was one of aerospace, and small/medium industry - most of that now gone, in some cases crushed by regulation. Not long ago, largest industrial city (amount/concentration of industry) in the western hemisphere - LA. Not Sao Paulo (always found that hard to believe, but I think it was true).

646 My former business partner used tell me he loved the slide rule as you could always come up with the answer you knew in your head that it had to be. I will still do a 2 cycle moment distribution whenever I can, and I will usually make some nice red lines on drawings if I see too many digits. Worst was angles on a steel structure to four decimal places. Pulled out my protractor and had him demonstrate to me how to read it to 1/10,000 of a degree. I once worked with a nepot (son of a company honcho) who didn't understand the difference between a two-place decimal and a three-place decimal. With traditional subtractive manufacturing, the more decimal places, the more precision is required to make. More time and expense, too.

671 @632 The Mueller witch hunt will only end in three ways, impeachment for the President, he is voted out in 2020 or he is termed out in 2024. Mueller will never pack it in because he as an unlimited mandate and an unlimited budget and zero oversight. Also... Trump has been put into a box that he cannot escape. He can't fire Sessions, Rosenstein or Mueller because to do so would immediately set off a fire storm at both the executive level and the legislative level. He fires Sessions, Rosenstein becomes AG and three and four at DOJ move up to two and three, which both are Obama appointees, McConnell has said he will not move a replacement for Sessions in the event he's fired. So he's stuck in the exact same position except Rosenstein is now the AG. He fires Rosenstein, Jeff Sessions is still recused and three and four move up, or Sessions resigns in protest setting up a crisis which will embroil the administration, I could very well see the GOP making noises about moving articles of impeachment, doesn't matter about the mid-term elections, they would gladly tank them to be rid of Trump. He fires Sessions and Rosenstein crisis ensues as he will not get a replacement and three and four either slide up or resign in protest setting off the firestorm of impeachment. Trump fires Mueller, Rosenstein, Sessions and possibly the entire top level of the DOJ resign in protest bringing on the crisis mentioned above. When Strozk talked about an insurance policy, I feel in my heart Sessions was that policy. Jeff Sessions is an utter disgrace. And this will go on until Mueller makes his move and if the Donks take one or both of the house then it will only get exponentially worse for the President as the Donks spin up investigation after investigation and issue subpoena after subpoena to harass the President and his administration. Again... Jeff Sessions is an utter disgrace.

but yeah, war overrides the wonders of moral man ... Genghis raiders just take everything in their path.

So the nation state protects, but America was rather unique in trying to be a strong nation yet maintain individual liberty.

We did pretty well till foreign governments (largely Soviet early on) raided us and used infiltration more than old fashioned war ... but still intent on defeating US.  And here we are, still fighting the PsyOp wars and shadow government(s).

711 Every transmitter, solid or hollow state, has a unique wave pattern due to inexact final filtering. Small difference but they are able to differentiate the spikes. Posted by: Under Fire I'm skeptical. All one would have to do is adjust the power (or drive) a tad and the signature would change. Things like ice on the antenna or any number of factors could affect the individuality of a radio transmission. Posted by: Soona Also, component wear would change the signal over time. And for the hollow-state variety, replace a tube (worn out or otherwise) and you get a whole new fingerprint. Or if you have multiple tubes of the same type, swap them around on the board. (You could do this with the solid-state ones too, but that requires soldering and not just popping a light bulb out of its socket.) So, I think it's possible, but seems like too fragile a fingerprint to really try to track it. So, exactly the thing our gov't would spend money on...

725 And this will go on until Mueller makes his move and if the Donks take one or both of the house then it will only get exponentially worse for the President as the Donks spin up investigation after investigation and issue subpoena after subpoena to harass the President and his administration.

727 And WWII tanks when disabled were not all that capable, at least in terms of a dynamic battlefield. Their optics and weaponry were not like today's. Posted by: rhomboid at July 26, 2018 12:48 PM (QDnY+) WWII tank turrets were not gyro stabilized so shooting accurately on the move was impossible anyway. The advantage of disabling a tank during WWII was that it would then be vulnerable to a swarm attack by our superior numbers. Posted by: Flawless Male Logic at July 26, 2018 01:05 PM Am back. My point earlier was a mobility kill is good enough in most cases. So what if it can shoot with the main gun and MGs. Effects are limited to LOS and it will be rare if we ever fight a tank on tank engagement again in flat desert terrain. Even if the tank is sitting flat with the main gun capable of indirect fire...again, limited effects. I always told my guys (and my ALOs) kill the artillery. That is what will kill us.

781 I'd assume one could set up a legit Ham system with license, establish contacts ... then if ever necessary, same system (or separate system same location) could send the coded whatever ... to avoid detection or tracking.

Hard to imagine if a lot of people are doing that now, or if simple text messages in bursts could even be picked up by NSA type listeners.

Nice to be a prepper in all regards, but we really have to stop the DeepState shit before we get to that point.  Being Wolverines in the woods might work if a large part of the nation is still holding together, but it would be messy.

785 one would think that ordering trolley cars that will not fit into the existing system would have died with the Mexico city debacle.   new crosstown route that can not be used as the cars can not negotiate the elevated curves.  But, true to bureaucrats covering their asses, it is not widely known the millions they wasted.  Hence, Seattle gets to waste more taxpayer dollars.  and the bureaucrats stroll away with their pensions.

823 an old man in Mississippi is sitting on his front porch watching the sun rise. He sees the neighbor's kid walk by carrying something big under his arm. "Hey boy, whatcha got there?" "Roll of chicken wire." "What you gonna do with that?" "Gonna catch some chickens." "You damn fool! You can't catch chickens with chicken wire!" The boy just laughs and keeps walking. That evening at sunset, the boy comes walking by, dragging behind him the chicken wire with about 30 chickens caught in it. The next morning, the old man is out watching the sun rise and he sees the boy walk by carrying something in his hand. "Hey boy, whatcha got there?" "Roll of duct tape." "What you gonna do with that?" "Gonna catch me some ducks." "You damn fool! You can't catch ducks with duct tape!" The boy just laughs and keeps walking.That night around sunset the boy walks by, trailing behind him the unrolled roll of duct tape with about 35 ducks caught in it. The next morning, the old man sees the boy walking by carrying what looks like a long reed with something fuzzy on the end. ''Hey boy, whatcha got there?" "It's a pussy willow." "Wait up...I'll get my hat."

824 2. Stupid mass transit systems What really irks me about the ones coming up now, namely "light rail" and "streetcars", is that often they are so backward and traffic clogging, with no grade separation or exclusive right of way. At least the transit systems oversold to us in days of yore, like the B.A.R.T. system in San Fransicko, *had* a meritorious pitch. "Imagine commuting from your suburban home to your Financial District job, Oakland Coliseum concert or sporting event, or Union Square or Bayfair shopping, faster (and in some cases, even cheaper), than driving and parking yourself!" And said system had its own right of way and total grade separation. This didn't happen, thank you pie in the sky promises, cost overruns and unions, but at least it was a promising pitch. Now? The new "Urban Planners" take peevish pride in making streetcars that take up existing road lanes. I imagine them in their planning offices--Affirmative Action bulldykes "of color" pushing papers who take pride in sticking it to frustrated and in their warped minds entirely "White male corporate" drivers.

I will remain vigilant, but the Devil is in the primary process, which is still too front loaded, still too winner take all by state, and still too rigged in my mind.

828 Believe it or not but many (too many) government bids get put out with a spec sheet that may be incorrect.

The contractors may not be required or have done a review of any of the requirements to see if they match reality.

This is how a bidding process works. The originating org develops and then writes the spec. the writer may not be anyone associated or knows anything about the system.

This happens in DOD and other Federal Government bids. One of the reason why we pay so much for items is that they will write everything down to what they want without checking if there are off the shelf substitutes that can be made to work.

Thus the contractor sometimes is require to manufacture or have manufactured special items that are only used in the contract and my never be used again thus raising the price enormously.

Want to save money and use it for good in the Military? Do a full investigation of our bidding and contracting system and revamp rewrite how it's done.

We build stuff to specs that were written in the 1940's. And lots of requirements for stuff that is no longer manufactured as better stuff is available.
