16 So the geniuses at the Department of Defense are about to destroy over a billion dollars worth of unused ammunition.

(This after midway through the previous decade, the DoD panicked and paid top dollar prices for ammo to resolve a "shortage".)

Of course, they could dispose of the ammo that's in civilian-compatible calibers by auctioning it off to the general public. Who have been suffering through the highest ammo prices in history.

But if they did make it available to the public, then a bunch of you bitter clingers would probably take the ammo and load it in "high capacity magazine clips". Perhaps even fire it from a weapon with "a shoulder thing that goes up".

Sorry, but Your Betters and the Top Men simply can't allow that to happen. The ammo must all be destroyed instead.

34 Afer being shot in the back by unidentified assailants, Jewish mayor of Kharkiv, Ukraine, Gennady Kernes, was flown to Israel late Monday night to receive medical treatment at Haifa's private hospital Elisha. Follow Ynetnews on Facebook and Twitter "We tested him upon his arrival and tests show that the surgeries (he underwent in Ukraine) were successful," said a representative from the Hospital. A spokesperson from the Kharkiv Municipality said yesterday, "The mayor was injured by a bullet in his back. He was brought in for surgery and doctors are fighting to save his life." Related stories: Jewish mayor of east Ukraine city shot in the back Donetsk leaflet: Jews must register or face deportation American-Israeli journalist held by east Ukraine militants "He is stable. That is all we can say right now," a hospital employee told Reuters. The Ukrainian embassy in Tel Aviv said it was not involved in Kernes's hospitalization in Israel, and that it may have been privately arranged and funded. According to local media sources, Kernes was shot during his morning run. Other sources reported that he was shot by vandals while riding a bicycle or swimming in a spring. Kharkiv's Chief Rabbi Moshe Moscowitz said that a doctor from Haifa arrived in Ukraine overnight to check Kernes' situation. According to Moscowitz, Kernes was flown to Israel at 3:00am with his wife at his side. "The mayor is very connected to the community," said Moscowitz. "Jews in Ukraine fly to Israel for medical treatment because everyone knows that the hospitals and medicine in Israel can't even be compared to the quality level in Ukraine."

47 There’s no free parking. Not even for the disabled. Jackson Memorial Hospital, a Miami-Dade county-owned hospital system, has recently joined the growing list of county facilities exempted from the county ordinance prohibiting charging disabled persons for parking. Starting May 1, disabled drivers will have to pay the same rates as everyone else to park at the public hospital. “Those who came here in a handicap vehicle with the blue tag will now, (along) with everyone else, after the (first) two hours, have to pay,” said Edward O’Dell, the hospital spokesperson. Miami International Airport and PortMiami have already been exempted from the rules. Both facilities managed to convince commissioners the number of drivers abusing the system warranted the waiver. Well all other issues aside, the overwhelming abuse of handicap stickers is a real problem. Sometimes I think I am living and working in the midst of a rehab center. I see people with no obvious handicap other than being lazy and stupid using them all day all the time. It is a problem

The handicap tag rules in MO allow me to use the tag when dropping off or picking up Mother-in-law. But this creates a humorous as all get out situation when I stick up the tag, step out of the car and head to wherever I'm getting her. I got some nasty looks once doing that. Until I came out with my incredibly stubborn MIL who should be in a wheelchair but instead is trying to make it with the walker. (Similar things have happened when I'm out with her and the wife, and we've left something in the car so I run out and get it while they stay wherever they are.)

73 Inalienable Rights that require State-issued permits are not rights, but privileges This. Do parade permits violate the Right of Free Assembly? Askin' There's a difference here that I think you're missing. Needing a gun permit even to engage in my Right to Keep and Bear Arms (which means military-grade weapons, btw- tell that to the gun-grabbers) violates the idea that it is a Right. You do not need a permit to "assemble" anywhere. If you and 100 other people want to get together on the steps of the Capitol Building, there's nothing that says you can't. If you cause a problem, you may be removed, but there's not actually a problem with you having assembled. Permits for parades or rallies are about use of public property, NOT your Right of Assembly.

86 The Pentagon has failed to produce a legally mandated policy report that outlines to Congress its upcoming plans for overseas troop deployments and the allocation of military hardware, according to an oversight report. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel is required by law to inform Congress about its plans and strategy for the military. However, officials have failed to issue any policy and it could be months before a concrete plan emerges, according to Department of Defense officials who spoke to the Government Accountability Office (GAO). The Pentagon’s failure to craft a “warfighter support” plan for America’s military operations means that Congress cannot provide the required oversight over these critical plans. As of mid-April, the DoD “has not established a policy or submitted an implementation plan to congressional committees as mandated by public law,” according to a newly issued GAO report. The Pentagon says that the major policy document will not be ready until at least November 15, according to one “senior DoD official” who spoke to the GAO. Ya may notice that date is after the midterm elections? I wonder what they are planning to put in that report that they don't want anyone to see. Another wholesale gutting of the Military? Anyone wanna bet?

90 The Pentagon has failed to produce a legally mandated policy report that outlines to Congress its upcoming plans for overseas troop deployments and the allocation of military hardware, according to an oversight report. Deadlines and legal requirements are for peons. This Administration can (and will) waive any requirement it wants and you will simply stand back and salute.

93 An anti-amnesty group is working to bring a Grover Norquist-like pledge to the immigration issue, and the highest-profile Republican primary challenger of the cycle is the first to sign. Mississippi state senator Chris McDaniel endorsed a new pledge from the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) Monday, vowing to oppose amnesty for illegal aliens as well as increases to legal immigration. The move could raise the importance of immigration in the bitter race between McDaniel and incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran, who has a mixed record on the issue from the standpoint of anti-amnesty groups. Cochran's lifetime voting grade from NumbersUSA, an anti-amnesty group closely associated with FAIR, is C+, lower than all but a handful of Senate Republicans. His rating for the current congress is B+. For his lifetime score, he scored a B for reducing illegal immigration at the borders but an F- for voting against proposals to reduce the number of immigrant visas available via lottery. FAIR's new pledge includes three planks. The first is to oppose “any form of work authorization” for illegal aliens. The second is to oppose legislation that would increase the number of legal immigrants. The third is to oppose bills that increase the number of “guest workers.” And: House Armed Services committee chairman Rep. Buck McKeon (R-CA) says a controversial immigration proposal shouldn't be in the upcoming Department of Defense authorization bill, a new blow to the effort to insert it into the bill. In an interview on Laura Ingraham’s radio program, McKeon said the NDAA is no place for the ENLIST Act – a bill from Rep. Jeff Denham (R-CA) that would grant amnesty to illegal alien DREAMers if they enlist in the U.S. armed forces. Good News

Williams said that his wife "went to the gas station" this past weekend to fuel her car. He said that "while she's trying to put the credit card in some guy rushes by her, gets in the car and drives off with the damn car." Williams said his wife's response was, "I wish I had a gun." Larson responded by saying, "God bless Mrs. Juan Williams," and said Juan should buy her a gun "at the next opportunity."

Disoriented and confused, Heather picked up her cell phone to check the camera in her 10-month-old daughter Emma's room. The camera was moving, but she wasn't moving it. "About the time I saw it moving, I also heard a voice again start screaming at my daughter. He was screaming, ‘Wake up baby. Wake up baby.' Then just screaming at her trying to wake her up." That's when Heather's husband, Adam, ran into Emma's room. Adam said the camera then turned from his petrified daughter to point directly at him. "Then it screamed at me," Adam said.

Posted by: BCochran1981 - Credible Hulk at April 29, 2014 09:56 AM (da5Wo) Oh the tunnel story? Gather round, Horde, it's story time! Once upon a time, Boy BFF worked for a mental health medical facility. This was located in a historic building. In order to comply with HIPAA regulations, the medical records had to be kept in a locked room due to the nature of those records. The only room that would work for this was also a room that was in the middle of the secondary fire escape route. As a result, those doors could never be locked. He is a problem solving sort so he said fine we'll remodel. Well, due to the historic nature of the building, the facility couldn't change many of the outer features and the only allowable interior area could not have walls demo'd as those were load bearing walls. So he was in the following position. If he locked the doors, he violated fire codes. If he left the doors open, he violated HIPAA. If he attempted to add onto the building, he violated building codes. If he attempted to remove some walls, he violated the laws of physics. Being a smart ass, I told him to just dig a tunnel. Nope. Couldn't do that because of sewer lines and underground cables. Each and every regulatory agency responded to being told that it was physically impossible to comply with fuck you, pay me.

This time around, the Kinect will be more versatile and accurate than the original, measuring everything from your facial expressions to your heart rate. And Microsoft would like as many games as possible to take advantage of it, whether by utilizing its voice commands or its motion detection system. But the next Kinect isn’t a “peripheral” gadget. Not by a long shot. The device is a required component of the Xbox One system and you’ll need to have it on and connected at all times—always watching, and always listening, to its users. What this means for the games we play is an open question, but it certainly raises privacy concerns. And maybe they are. I haven't checked out how they're selling.

Something like 20% of Americans qualify for a handicapped placard under the rules. 63 million or so.

The ADA was one of the worst laws--naturally, it was passed by Republicans.

There's an crippled attorney in CA that made millions paying people to go to small mom-and-pop stores around the state, pretend they couldn't get in and then he'd sue the hell out of them--all under the ADA.

I recall it being the last act of the Democrat congress in 1994 before they got their asses kicked. I remember this so distinctly because I was quite upset with the requirement to put all those handicapped parking spaces outside of every business, which mostly remain unused. The Dems noticed this apparently, because they gradually relaxed the requirements as to what constituted "handicapped" so as to get enough people to park in those spaces in order to make it appear that they were needed. I know quite a few people with those handicap signs hanging from their mirrors, and not a damn one of them is handicapped in the traditional understanding of the term.

196 In response to concerns over privacy with its next-gen console, Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox One and its all-seeing Kinect sensor can be turned "completely off". Concerns had arisen over the implications for potential breach of privacy with an always-on device that's equipped with an advanced camera and microphone array and a constant connection to the internet. That you can turn on the console with a voice command - therefore suggesting that the Kinect sensor is 'always listening' even when in standby mode - has proven particularly unsettling for some.

Brannon had a bunch of red and white, block-letter signs that were pretty popular, Tillis had a sort of similar looking sign, still does, and it's reasonably well represented. Anyway, one day all the red Brannon signs disappeared, and there were dozens on the route I take. I didn't know what was up. A couple days later, a few Brannon signs were back, but not nearly as many, and with a totally different design. Nice looking signs. I figure the campaign thought they needed the red ones some where else. Maybe they've given up on Winston-Salem, or maybe they think they have it clinched or maybe they just desperately needed signs no matter where they came from.

Sure, you don't *have* to have the Kinect on at all times, but if you don't you lose most of the new functionality of the XB1. Sure, you don't *have* to be connected to the internet, but if you don't, you can't play some of the cool new games. Might as well just skip the XB1 at that point.

The reason for this one, why they always will keep it above 40%?

Bush.

As soon as it dips below 40%, people will start comparing him to Bush.

3/01/06 was the first time Bush dipped below 40% approve.

232 Considering how many games for XB1 require an XBox Live account (and many of them require a 'Gold' account), and considering all the voice commands, etc. run through the Kinect, I'm going with semantic BS. Sure, you don't *have* to have the Kinect on at all times, but if you don't you lose most of the new functionality of the XB1. Sure, you don't *have* to be connected to the internet, but if you don't, you can't play some of the cool new games. Might as well just skip the XB1 at that point. Posted by: AllenG (DedicatedTenther) Ah, F It. at April 29, 2014 10:40 AM (PYAXX) Well, no, it's not semantics because initially you couldn't run the One without the Kinect on at all. That went well. I still haven't purchased a new gaming console because Destiny isn't out until September and that's the only game that I'm all MUST HAVE MUST. Right now, I'm nearly certain that I'll be getting a PS4 because I don't want an all in one entertainment device. I want a gaming console.

234 During an April 28 interview on The Lars Larson show, Fox News' Juan Williams told a story about his wife's car being stolen and her saying, "I wish I had a gun."

Williams said that his wife "went to the gas station" this past weekend to fuel her car. He said that "while she's trying to put the credit card in some guy rushes by her, gets in the car and drives off with the damn car."

Williams said his wife's response was, "I wish I had a gun."

Larson responded by saying, "God bless Mrs. Juan Williams," and said Juan should buy her a gun "at the next opportunity."

Follow AWR Hawkins on Twitter @AWRHawkins 

I'd wager that Mrs. Williams not only left her keys in the ignition, but left her automobile running (with her purse in the car) while she was sliding her credit card through the gas pump. So had she a gun, I'd bet she'd have left it in her automobile while she pumped gas. How many ladies like she is would actually wear a holster, or even carry her bag out of the car while she messes with the gas pump?


Of course every responsible US citizen has the right to carry, just like they have the right to register to vote and exercise that privilege. But rights and privileges don't equate to skills or intelligent behavior.


"I wish I had a gun," said Mrs. Juan Williams who would have shot the car jacker dead "Because I Could" execute a life for inconveniencing her.

My point, let her eat her own words. SHE can have a gun at will, but WE may not.

Hope I have more time if serious cam need arises. Physical mic cutoffs, not software. Yeah, I still wouldn't trust anything I couldn't open up and verify. Meanwhile, I think a simple 4-contact dummy plug may cut of the mic for now. Untested, but plugging in the stereo-with-mic headset does cut off the mic in the phone, so, theoretically. Sunday, while changing the tape, I was cleaning the lens on the front cam. That main cam is impressive enough, but the front pinhole cam is amazing; terrifying.

242 The Best Way To Deal With Racism Is Apparently More Racism

I sort of understand part of the reason for Sterling's comments about minorities at basketball games. The unspoken truth about basketball is that with all those high salaried players, it takes more than the "cheap seats" to pay the bills. It takes the largest possible demographic to bring in the sponsors who will pay the bills.

That said, I don't believe a "Black NBA" could keep more than 6 to 8 teams alive for more than 3 years under the best possible scenario.

The Xbox 360 was launched a year before the PS3. (Sony was committed to Blu-ray playback and couldn't launch until the DRM had been finalized, in addition to production issues on the chip set.) It was in short supply for most of that year, even before the RROD problem started to kick in.

The PS3 got off to a slow start due to the unprecedented high price at the time. The then boss of the US division, Jack Tretton, was famously embarrassed by claiming he'd give anyone a multiple of the retail price if they could find the PS3 in stock anywhere for more than a day, and hundreds of people responded with demands of payment because their local stores had ample stock that hadn't decreased appreciably in quite a while.

This is why libs want to destroy the Tea Party. The GOP DOES NOT want to move the needle to the right. They want to cash fat paychecks while being "collegial".

The libs LOVE there pet (R)s -Boehner, McConnell, McCain, etc. - because they can control them with the leash of their own corrupted greed and power lust.

The base and I believe the LIVs are waiting for this: actual conservative opposition.For all her failings, Palin gets this and draws fire like a magnet.

The GOP need to quit treating anti-freedom, anti-human proggies like special needs children. Quit giving long boring reasoned explanations for why guns don't jump up off the floor and shoot people, why abortion is murder and why being respected is more imported than being liked in the world.

You can't convince the "true believing" prog-zombies of anything.They don't hear you. They already "know".

Enough reasoned "explanations". Mock their stupid "bogeyman" stories and their stupid, immature, daddy-issues idealogy at every turn for the anti freedom idiocy that it is.

267 232. ADA

The History of the ADA A Movement Perspective

by Arlene Mayerson
1992

The history of the ADA did not begin on July 26, 1990 at the signing ceremony at the White House.

The ADA, as we know it today, went through numerous drafts, revisions, negotiations, and amendments since the first version was introduced in 1988. Spurred by a draft bill prepared by the National Council on Disability, an independent federal agency whose members were appointed by President Reagan, Senator Weicker and Representative Coelho introduced the first version of the ADA in April 1988 in the 100th Congress.

Justin Dart, Chair of the Congressional Task Force on the Rights and Empowerment of People with Disabilities, traversed the country holding public hearings which were attended by thousands of people with disabilities, friends, and families documenting the injustice of discrimination in the lives of people with disabilities.

On May 9, 1989 Senators Harkin and Durrenberger and Representatives Coelho and Fish jointly introduced the new ADA in the 101st Congress. From that moment, the disability community mobilized, organizing a multi-layered strategy for passage. A huge coalition was assembled by the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD), which included disability organizations, the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (LCCR), and an array of religious, labor and civic organizations.

A Viet Nam veteran who had been paralyzed during the war and came home using a wheelchair testified that when he got home and couldn’t get out of his housing project, or on the bus, or off the curb because of inaccessibility, and couldn’t get a job because of discrimination he realized he had fought for everyone but himself – and he vowed to fight tirelessly for passage of the ADA.

After the spectacular Senate vote of 76 to 8 on September 7,1989, the Bill went to the House where it was considered by an unprecedented four Committees [to be passed].

For the first time in the history of our country, or the history of the world, businesses must stop and think about access to people with disabilities.

294 “Holding Ms. Lerner in contempt would not only be unfair and, indeed, un-American, it would be flatly inconsistent with the Fifth Amendment as interpreted by the Supreme Court,” Lerner’s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, wrote in a letter to House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio." --------------------------------- "Bullshit" - Trey Gowdy

Taking pictures of license plates then Tweeting them so that others could access the owner's DMV records. He claims a cop did it for him, so he now knows who this guy is and can "keep an eye" on him.

 

I said it before and I'll say it again:  a great many people would benefit from having their teeth punched down their throats.

The government is taking the medical profession, as driven by honor and personal responsibility as the military, and grinding them into bureaucrats.

In another generation, they will not even understand what this doctor is upset about.

298 Yeah, too bad I missed the Sarah Palin thread yesterday.  Work and all.

If she wants the job, Sarah Palin will be the 2016 GOP presidential nominee.

Obviously its because DrewM is having writers block in making up a fake story to make us mad about what the Republicans in Congress are doing.  Because you know we would never know about that sort of stuff if it weren't for Drew making it up, getting them to magically say it and then media reporting on it all so he can write a post.

 

How dare that Drew report on how Boehner and the others intend to screw us over.

303 Registered voters by 53-39 percent in the national survey say they’d rather see the Republicans in control of Congress as a counterbalance to Obama’s policies than a Democratic-led Congress to help support him.

304 134 GGE It would seem that this is an opportunity to apply 3D printing. I assume that the electric motor, wheels and controls - if any are pretty generic and the variations will be in the shell of the locomotive that is seen. Either you or your local hobby shop ought to be able to crank out quite a variety of locomotive bodies as well as rolling stock.

I watch  essentially  no reality tv, but  the only one I've seen that was even remotely interesting was the one with Heidi  Klum  and a bunch of  young fashion designers.

 

The thing that made it interesing is that, get this, the "contestants"  on the show actually have talent!  And are competing for  REAL  jobs, in  the  REAL  world!!

 

And  you could  duplicate that sort of thing in many other ways.  Instead, networks  seem to focus  on either making people eat bugs, or watching  rednecks in their natural habitats.  Or  both.

306 "If she wants the job, Sarah Palin will be the 2016 GOP presidential nominee." I dunno. She seemed to chap a lot of asses with that weird '12 summer. You know the fundraising and book tour barring the media. She was playing multi-dimensional chess and laying in the weeds and all that and then...............

308 yeah, kerry is our 'top' diplomat It's funny, but obama and kerry and holder have harsher words for Americans (especially White conservatives), Christians, and Israel than terrorists. In fact, not once did you EVER hear obama or kerry or clinton say one harsh or negative thing about Iran, have you?

“One thing that I know, because I know people who know [Thatcher], is when Sarah Palin first burst on the scene, she wanted to have a meeting with Palin, because she saw raw political talent, but wanted to teach Sarah Palin to do what she did,” Coulter told Geraldo Rivera on his radio show Monday. One can get lost fantasizing about what Thatcher might have taught Palin.

 

This is the closest I could find to the story I remember.  Apparently, the Baroness saw potential in Sarahcuda but wanted her to do the hard work she had done.  Learn erudition, read history, train her mind to think sharply, but Sarah was not down for that. 

 

I revere Palin as a hottie and a red meat slinger, but I don't take her seriously as a prospect.

I like Survivor, because hey its a game show, and there are usually a few cute girls on it running around in bikinis.  And I also like shows like Kitchen Nightmares because those are real world type things happening, and I love it when they do the revisits and the restaurant has closed because they didn't follow the advice.

=========
My feeling then (which I believe today) is that she was the only Republican in 2012 who had a chance of beating Obama.  There was something about her speech at the NRA Convention this weekend that was different, though. Conservative clothing, and that 3-second pause  between "If I were in charge ...." and the rest of the waterboarding message.  Her facebook page occupation is simply "politician".  Period.  Draw thine own conclusions.

320 If no one's mentioned it- Here's the new Asian trailer for Godzilla; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1pX97_0rxU It looks awesome. It also now is pretty clear that they are borrowing a theme from the 1990s rebooted Gamera Trilogy- That being that Gamera is a guardian spirit of Earth who hates humanity ju-u-u-u-u-ust a little bit less than he hates the other monsters who throw the Earth out of balance with their hijinks. Here are the trailers for the Gamera Trology: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CY9CVUWW-PA Here is the movie that probably formed the framework for the new Godzilla movie- Gamera 3: The Revenge of Iris http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuZHuHYmoFw Which has the most badass ending in all of kaiju- it is just epic- and really sets expectations for the next Gamera flick. At which point, they rebooted the reboot and threw it all away in "Gamera the Brave" though they did give a short prologue in GtB which at least solves the "Dark Knight"-ish style cliffhanger at the end of Gamera 3. And gets rid of mean Gamera before rebooting him as cutey-pie Gamera, friend of children.

===================
Thatcher's health was deteriorating, and when her friends and advisers received Palin's petition for a meeting, Sarah Barracuda was spurned by the old guard.
