I’ve known a few men that can swim like that. All of them were special forces types of the variety you absolutely do not mess with. 10 miles is one mighty swim.

The FCC is operating under a recent law’s mandate to expand broadband. The FCC is an independent agency with a charter that started out assigning broadcast frequencies to over-the-air radio stations, then it took up content restricting what you could say on broadcast radio, and television. The FCC takes over every time a new development in technology is deployed for public use. The FCC does not regulate cable TV. Cable TV is in a cable. The internet is in a cable in the same way cable TV is in a cable. The FCC just made a power grab. Probably an Obama requested power grab. FCC puts out regulations that amount to legislation with out the benefit of a legislature. Get caught up in FCC regulations and you enter an unconstitutional arena of administrative law, and maybe end up in front of an administrative law judge. It takes hundreds of millions of dollars to defend yourself in an administrative law case. Only a very few can do this so the government wins because the government uses you tax money to defeat you in administrative law cases. This great large mass of independent government agencies needs to go away. They were and are created by a lazy legislature, aka congress, because the members are 1.) doing things they should not be doing, or 2.) are too lazy to study the issues and pass an appropriate law. To get the lead (a grey soft metal) out of congress we need to institute term limits, preferably one term and done. Nobody ever stands for re-election.

Most of those under ground shelters are on private property that is paid for.

Raptors are territorial everywhere. The big thing about an owl is it is nocturnal and absolutely quiet, as in there is no way anyone can hear the thing coming as it attacks from your back. You cannot relocate these things either. Out here, it was a Great Horned owl, and DNR would not do anything about it, so I caged it and kept it. That is illegal but their enforcement officers showed up I saw them coming and turned the owl lose on them. When the officers finished with the owl, there was no evidence it had ever been caged. The owl is in a zoo aviary.

Austria’s restrictions on Islam are a good start. Islam should be opposed at all times in countries where Islam is not the law of the land just to assure gradualism’s encroachments do not turn the country into another Muslim country. Theocracies are tyranny by definition. Islam and Sharia are inseparable and thoroughly interwoven. Where Islam is concerned there are only two choices, vigorous opposition or subjugation. The best option is keep Islam where it is and not let it out. Already in the UK the Muslims are taking over some of the community schools and instituting mandatory Islamic study by all students. There is an uprising but the progressive liberals running the country are all about hands off the Muslims.

I am very very sorry for the loss by the Shaw family.
It is just one more crime propagated by government against the people of this country largely through the efforts of the progressive liberal members of The Democratic Party in their current state of gross incompetence.

I’ve seen it before, but not recently. Thank you for the reminder.

Sending Rice and Power to that conference looks more like an act disruption than any other purpose. I wonder what their reception will be like.
 February 26, 2015 at 11:58am
Susan Rice is lost in space. The space between her ears must be empty. For decades now foreign policy has been little else but politics. The speech amounts to the representatives of the people telling the president what he is doing is not what he was elected to do. It’s buyer’s remorse. The majority voting public elected Obama twice, knowing full well what he is and what he will do. Now Ms Rice is propagating lies to cover other lies. Oh what a tangled web we weave when at first we seek to deceive.

Since when does government get expand private business. Broadband is provided by private businesses, and private businesses should be left to do it, and government has no business being in business. The law is a bad law putting the FCC anywhere into data communications. Of all the law that is not enforced, this one is a good candidate to be ignored until it can be repealed. Every other government invasion of private business in the past 6 years has been a miserable failure, and there is no reason to expect this one to prove otherwise.

On a windshield test shot the prongs bend when the hit the smooth hard windshield, then entering ballistic jell they act like FMJ or HP rounds with enough energy to go through 15″ of jell for 9mm 124gr. Water filled balloons are not a threat but they do fragment. Straight ballistic jell they fragment and some of the triangular pieces do make it through about 12″ of jell, so I can see where fragments could be through and through. These things do beat FMJ 9mm where you can easily get high energy through and through rounds, so you need a line of fire free of living things in a gun fight. Not likely to happen. What passes for cinder building block these days, the 9mm round makes it through the front and fragments coming out the back side of the front and the fragments are contained inside. I need to test this stuff going through sheetrock to see what happens when it hits a house.

There is no privacy in the “.porn” territory of the internet. I spent a lot of IT time and resources decontaminating PC that belong to the company but are treated as if they are personally owned. When we put up a double firewall, and largely eliminated the porn, and then started tracking internal IPs and sending do not do porn here emails, we had quite a reserve of bandwidth. We also had a lot of employee complaints. We then went after conduct that invited in malware, started tracking malware to the first internal infection, and initiated security training for everyone. A while later, we got the personnel office to issue a contrary IT security conduct policy change that could get security offenders fired. A few people were fired. After that we had no malware problems for the remainder of my tenure at the company. Porn is loaded with every possible exploit for every operating system. Keeping porn out of the internal network is a great money saver.

The tiger will not be tamed in our time. Down deep inside the mainland governors are militant, corrupt, greedy, and ingrained in communism even though they are rich from practicing capitalism. China cringes at kowtowing to the USA, and has not done so for decades, and they are projecting military power in the region far beyond their borders to challenge the USA in its weakened state expecting no response of consequence. China too just like the USSR in the past considers the politically correct progressive liberals useful idiots. China knows Obama is not a strategist, and is too narcissistic to listen to others that are. Our military is over extended from over a decade at war with an undefined foe. Huge amounts of the logistics the military needs to project power have been turned over and are no longer part of our inventory. For at least two more years we will be too weak to challenge China financially, militarily, or in commerce having given up a large part of our manufacturing capability.

I seriously doubt any of those players are paying full tuition, so their tenure there is based on their play. And then this is a state school paid for with a lot of state tax money. And lastly the school administration is responsible for for a whole lot of money frivolously spent on locker room amenities. Then there is the issue of what these guys are studying. Will they actually be employable after graduation. I do know one college jock that did not make the pros, and ended up as a used car salesman. The odd thing is he is actually making a comfortable living at it. He said he could have done that job right out of high school and did not need the expense and subsequent debt of the college experience. College is not all it is cracked up to be.

I got my first chemistry set in 1958. That lead me to read the encyclopedias about all the chemicals in it, and I went on to read about and synthesize a lot more stuff using things around the house, my father’s work shop, and purchased off the shelf at the local drug store. the summer I was 14, that career ended when I made and tested dynamite. I blew up a huge old dead tree in the creek bed way in the back of the farm. The police came out and were looking around at the remains and asking questions about who and what might have blown up the tree, and I was found out. My father made me throw away everything I had and forbade me from chemistry experiments at home. After all was over and done I had quite the child prodigy reputation as a chemist in the that part of the township, and was consulted by many of the farmers and house wives about chemistry. I became an electrical engineer.

Well, just think about it. Since a majority of this population, all democrats, put Obama in office twice. So a the people getting hit by the “no insurance tax” will be largely those who voted for Obama and ever malevolent thing he has precipitated. I am sorry people who did not vote for Obama are also caught by this vile tax, and that is not including anybody who failed to vote.

It is better to bring “denial of Constitutional” civil rights charges. That makes a Federal case out of it, and that also opens up possibilities of large judgements against the officer, the police department, and the local governance organization the police office worked for.
Yeah, I got a BIG picture of Holder bringing that case forward.

Obama. de Blasio, Erin Burnett, and all the progressive liberal media are really quick to start making things up and incite riots and cop killers like Ferguson, NYC, and now Chapel Hill. All of them should just shut it! Keep to the facts, and stop the damn lies.

These looting criminals are just asking for it. They are not caught and not prosecuted. The business owners insurance rates are skyrocketing. Small businesses can not afford it. Driving the neighborhood small business out of business means vacant buildings and neighborhood decline. It will not be long before the businesses start defending their property and persons, and businesses just like the Koreans did it in Watts. It was good old effective whack ‘em and stack ‘em. One shot head shots and down they go inside the store, never to do that again. If there were hundreds or even thousands of looters, there would be hundreds of dead looters on the floor. That would stop it damn quick. What is worse, is the businesses may well still leave.
The businesses will leave and never return. I have watched this same thing for over 40 years now in KC. The slow but certain erosion of the community and crime that simply drives businesses away. Then the remaining citizens complain they have to drive to far for groceries and gas. The display of adequate FORCE is a preventative to crime. Follow through is essential.
Defending your store is the only option. Insurance will not cover losses.
