It’s not neocon hatemongers using any excuse to get the Residents case, but a reality. Even when clinton went into the balkans (we were in a lot more places than bosnia) He didn’t do so until he had already submitted a request to congress, and congress eventually approved. What this says about executive war powers is at best bizarre and at worst (though I disagree) impeachable.

F-35A (airforce HTO-HL) Will be in small operational testing with the people who will actualy fly them.

Posted by Wickedpinto on February 21, 2011

This is good news, though some of the article says that they are fast tracking. Maybe because of some of the eeorish (likely rightly placed but they might prove us wrong) of Xbrad, Mesa and I not trusting the rosy promises of the plain being fully functional, especially the naval versions. Just last year, it looked like the ’35 would have been drawn out for another 2 years, moving fleet inventories from 2014, to 2016, all while cutting off funding to the f-22, I still think that was a mistake, but I’m affraid of heights, I just read reviews.

the ’22 has approximately the same airframe as the ’35, as I understand it, and economies of scale would drive prices down as long as there is enough cross production of basic parts, and while 500 is a solid number for a complete fleet, most nations don’t have the land mass, or the international obligations that the US has. Stopping at 500, sounds short of ideal, since it would increase maintenance and replacement costs across all US theaters of guardianship.

But overall, good news if it follows through, and wasn’t fast tracked irresponsibly.

I would Call it the Ball Thong

Posted by Wickedpinto on December 21, 2010

Combat Codpiece.

But but it looks like a sanitary napkin, with a little room for the junk.

Maybe, “The Dong Thong.” or “The Cock Blocker.” It’s just that codpiece makes me think of blacky lawless, and unless there are sparks shooting out of it, I’m disappointed.

Happy Thanksgiving

And I’m thankful for this guy, for his family, and for the people he worked with.

“Where do we get these people.”

They are all around us, and a lot of times we never see them, even when they are looking in the mirror.  Thank you sir.

This Makes me think of “Icon”

Posted by Wickedpinto on November 16, 2010

In the Book by Frederick Forsyth (well known spy/action, but mostly spy stuff, thriller writer) “Icon.” There is a line that is uttered in the omniscient about computers by agent Monk. “Then, all of the most valuable and protected information in the world was given over to the most insecure technology in the world,” or something like that. That line was delivered to describe how angry Monk was becoming with the new leadership of the CIA after the dismissal, or was it retirement, of secretary Casey, and he was talking about computers.

The point was to say that even if it takes a little extra work for YOU, who knows that the info is right there to get the info, it will make it even harder for THEM, who doesn’t know where the information is, or should not even know, and has no right to that info, to get at. Which is a good thing, when you are talking about intelligence security. Monk, in the book, deliberately hid his files of 4 valuable spies, and eventually his files were no longer under his control, which helped trigger a conflict that requires his efforts later in life after he jacks up his former bosses(a truly satisfying series of paragraphs, I suggest you read the book, it’s pretty good.)

The reason I say that, is because of this.  It doesn’t say the nature of the risk that they exposed others to do, but it goes to show that good old fashioned hard-copy has it’s value no matter how many presentations Steve Jobs gives.

There should be absolutely NO classified material available to any system connected to a network.

In another series of books, called “Shadowrun,” based on a game that took place in the near future (2015 and after) , yes  used to play and read it, there was a classification called “excalibur.”  Where all systems holding truly valuable data (by hackers/deckers) weren’t even piped into common power, they would always contain their own power generation separate of all other systems and no connections to the Matrix/internet.

If a bunch of dorks in the early nineties, actually late 80’s if you include the seminal “neuromancer,” which I do, can realize the risk of allowing valuable information to be accessible over open networks, they why the flying eff couldn’t our intellectual and political betters?

15% of the WORLDS online data routed through China?

Tom Friedman is smiling maybe, but I sure as hell ain’t, nor should anyone else.

Via DailyMail, Don Surber is AWESOME!

UPDATE: I just edited a bunch of bad punctuation, and incorrect spelling.  Spell check makes me dumber than I already am.  Sure there is still flaws, but it was really bad before this update.

Can’t stand either of them, but they are who they are, and it’s nice to see them do something like this for the troops.

DADT and Sodomy.

Posted by Wickedpinto on November 6, 2010

R.C. Marsh, over at American Thinker, has this thing about DADT and includes something about the sodomy provision.  First, I want to ask, does fellatio and cunnilingus considered “Sodomy?”  If so, find someone in a happy relationship that hasn’t consisted of either delivering or receiving one of those, just saying, so no problem with that part.  Not to mention, there are some of those a little more experimental who engage in the more common definition without once being gay.  Just saying.

As for DADT, My curiosity is, why is the legislature doing anything other than the declaration of war as it applies to the military?  Isn’t it the express constitutional responsibility of the executive to handle the way in which the military is handled?  The congress can oversee the executive, but not the military directly.  Isn’t that correct?

Also, repeal of DADT automatically defaults to previous policy which would definitely reinstate actual “witch hunts,” since the status quo prior to DADT was to screen for homosexuality.  How is repeal DADT a good thing for gays, and why did it take a congressional passage to employ DADT to begin with?

Disclosure:  I know it’s a shocker, but at one time I served in the armed forces, and I knew gay servicemembers.  I didn’t give a damn, and I think most don’t, my concern has nothing to do with gays, everything with process.  Micromanaging jerkwads.

Just so fun to watch

Posted by Wickedpinto on October 20, 2010

Weasel zippers has a daily warporn feature, which is AWESOME!

This post has 4 vids of jihadi’s killing themselves through poor training and poor maintenance.   I don’t understand the failures in the mortars, I never got to play with them or take any “classes” on them so I don’t know, maybe mesa has some experience and could throw some effing knowledge at me if he’s bored.

But consider this the feel good humpday link.  Go there for the video’s, they rate the traffic, since they are effing awesome.

Pretty awesome, go see it at Weasel Zippers.

Would like to see his opponent try to pull some crap about the “controversy,” around his retirement.  Weak kneed wussbags call it a “controversy,” most everyone else calls it “Unadulterated Awesomeness.”

Cool things with guns

Posted by Wickedpinto on August 2, 2010

Found at “view from the porch,”

Guy demonstrates a field expedient fix on his ar-15 family rifle, located at “guns and coffee.”  Obviously heat will likely burn it out, but still pretty cool.   Located at “guns and coffee.”  Which is a pretty good name, though I think “Guns and Hard Licquor” would be cooler, though far less responsible.

Jane Fonda said “the C-word” on live national television the other day wile giving an interview to meredith vierra, while sitting next to eve ensler (spelling? I know it really isn’t necessary, but even though her name starts with an “e” we all pronounce it with a “C” if you know what I mean, what I mean)

Anyways, Jane says “cunt” and when she says it, she looks directly at the camera, and pauses before saying it, which clearly demonstrates that it was not an “inadvertent” or whatever the spelling is, error on her part. Jane was being provocative.

First, I would like to say, that I rarely ever use the word cunt, I think it is a low and vile word, I think that the word itself is offensive to all women, even if it is used in a less offensive way, for instance, I used to bang this one hot broad who would always refer to her “flower” as a “meaty cunt,” thats a true story, and even though it was pretty hot while I was hitting that shit, it was more than a little off-putting, because I found the word more than a little bit offensive in general usage. (btw, erica call me next time you are in town.)

Having said that, let me THANK Jane Fonda for her “apology” about having used the word “cunt,” because Jane, the GREAT Lady Jane said, quite clearly that the word “cunt” is just a word, and there is no reason to be frightened of it. Once again Jane, because for Years, and Years, I have restricted my use of the word “cunt” to very specific situations, and in very limited sentence usage. Oddly enough most of those sentences used the word “cunt” as an adjective, and, get this, Jane Fonda as either a subject or object.

For instance, as a young man, while my Vietnam Veteran Marine father would talk about Jane Fonda, he almost ALWAYS used the word “cunt” actually, the way my father would say the word “cunt” wasn’t like it was just a word, it was like a primal grunt, so it was more like “CunTuh” and it wasn’t just my vietnam veteran father, it was also his vietnam veteran friends, and brothers, and also most of the wives of my father and his vietnam veteran friends, like. . . well, my mother, who has no problem with calling Jane Fonda a Cunt.

So, I thank you Jane Fonda for informing the world that “cunt” is just a word and that no one should be ashamed of it, and if you ever feel the urge to use it, USE it, because words can’t hurt you, words like:

Jane Fonda is a treasonous cunt

That cunt Jane Fonda is telling me to buy CFL’s again.


Why did the cunt cross the road?

Because Jane Fonda is a filthy cunt cunty cunt whore cunt.

(okay, that last one was a bit of a reach, but it still strikes to the heart of the matter.)

So thank you cunt for making sure that the rest of us understand that it is now OK to use the word “cunt,” especially in reference to you.

Disgusting — Brits treat their returning soldiers horribly

Posted by mesablue on January 5, 2008

Afghan heroes home for Christmas forced to change out of uniforms on freezing runway before using airport terminal

Scores of soldiers flying home from Afghanistan on Christmas leave were ordered to change out of their uniforms on a freezing runway before being allowed into a civilian airport terminal.

Troops were told not to be seen in public in their uniforms – which they had worn with pride while risking their lives during months of intense fighting against the Taliban.

If this were an isolated incident, it would be easy to write this off as a mistake or misunderstanding. But, it’s already happened a couple of times in Seattle and once in California, that I remember — while escorting the body of a fallen comrade.

Just mind numbingly callous. But, don’t forget — they support our troops.


Thanks to Michelle Malkin
