A loving family would have locked him in the attic long ago.

narciso

lord love a waterfowl, this fellow like Agee, like Boyce willingly cooperated with the FSB.

Marlene

What "sensitive" messages is he sending/receiving? Does an 89 year old former president still receive security briefings?

Extraneus

But even that effort virtually exhausted their data analysis and storage capabilities;

...which have improved since then, and continue to do so.

God forbid we are still hearing from the JEF thirty five years from now.

What's that old maxim about opening Jimmah's mouth and removing all doubt?

MarkO

If you can imagine it, the NSA is doing it.

Threadkiller

I looked at my clock and tired to solve the equation, TM.

jimmyk

God forbid we are still hearing from the JEF thirty five years from now.

A nightmare scenario to be sure. But I don't think he gets to take TOTUS with him into retirement, so what will he be able to say?

MarkO

George Will:

Putin, whose lamented Soviet Union was then Hitler’s ally, knows Hitler’s tactics. If Putin had a sense of humor he would justify as “R2P” his policy of bringing home to the safety of Mother Russia many of the Russians residing in contiguous countries. R2P — “responsibility to protect” — was the moral principle the Obama administration invoked to justify involvement in the seven-month assault on Moammar Qaddafi, who posed no threat to us but supposedly did to Libyans.

In a recent New Yorker interview, Obama praised himself for being “comfortable with complexity” and unraveled the Middle East’s complications: “It would be profoundly in the interest of citizens throughout the region if Sunnis and Shias weren’t intent on killing each other.” This is the president as poseur — detached, laconic, arch, almost droll: If only — apologies to Kipling — the lesser breeds without the law would behave.

NK(withnewsoftware)

'Putin understands Hitler's tactics'-- true, just as long he doesn't invoke "Ein Rooskie Volk" instead of R2P.

Obummer in New Yorker-- he really said that? What a moron, what an empty suit, the ultimate poseur. Disgrace.

jimmyk

O is comfortable with complexity because it allows him to BS and pretend to have profound insights while saying absolute nonsense. Sometimes known as an inability to see the forest for the trees.

Captain Hate

Did Meeka reminisce about when Adultery of the Heart used to read Protocols of the Elders of Zion to her?

CH@11:31-- now THAT's funny. (probably true Zbig may have had a signed first edition)

...which have improved since then, and continue to do so.

Time is surely on their side in the race between generating data and storing it. But Jimmy is not talking about someday, he is talking about now.

And - Spoiler Alert! - there is a trick answer to the stopped clock v. Jimmeh question. Actually, it is obvious enough to be below most people, nut not me.

Ignatz

Jeebus, what a retarded toad.
If Jimmy wasn't real a latter day Faulkner would have to dream him up.

The interceding 28 years between that moralizing, flap jowled, hang-dog dope and the present nicely scrubbed, marginally articulate imbecile with impending bursitis from patting himself on his brilliant back seems like some kind of golden age, even though it was populated by only one colossus and three decidedly non colossi.

NK(withnewsoftware)

TomM-- this word you use, 'Insights,' I do not think it means what you think it means :)

Love this post Tom Maguire!!!

Pretty psyched about TK's clock too - I want one of those. Do they sell on Amazon?

Ignatz

Interesting thoughts on how women lawyers, especially young attractive ones, should dress in the courtroom from a sitting federal judge Richard Kopf [who just began chemo for Hodgkins disease]

Cecil Turner

And - Spoiler Alert! - there is a trick answer to the stopped clock v. Jimmeh question.

Is there? I rather idly figured 60x60x12/365.25 and came up with 118 years (and a couple months). That seemed to pass the reasonableness test (Jimmuh will likely die before he's right), but wasn't interesting enough to comment.

But now it is. Where did I go wrong?

Captain Hate

If Jimmy wasn't real a latter day Faulkner would have to dream him up.

He might've been who the late Harry Crews had in mind as "Oyster Boy" in The Knockout Artist"

When Jake comes in with Oyster-Boy, thin, pale, shedding skin, a dog collar around his neck led by the enormous and salacious Purvis, we know that he has crept into the darkest side of town, the part most of us don’t want to see but can’t help staring at.
NK(withnewsoftware)

"Jeebus, what a retarded toad.
If Jimmy wasn't real a latter day Faulkner would have to dream him up"

Ig-- absolutely brilliant.

The 1981-2007 Golden Age was instigated foremost by Reagan, but there were other very important greats, Thatcher, Friedman, Pope John PaulII, Lech W even Steve Jobs and Gates and others. We are all beneficiaries of the liberty and economic freedom they recovered for us. We have to step up now, everyday.

Ignatz

I want to see a cage match between Oyster Boy and Shrimp Boy.

lyle

Okay, I'll be the one to say it:

Just die already, Jimmeh!

NK(withnewsoftware)

Unspoken, but uniformly assumed.

Extraneus

Oyster Boy and Shrimp Boy in the same day? Hmm.

Cecil Turner

Jeeze, self, RTFQ. A second an hour, not a second a day. Divide by 24 gives 4.9 years. That's no longer reasonable, but my confidence is now zero anyway.

(And I no longer care about the answer and will refuse any further opportunities for public arithmetic.)

Captain Hate

When Adultery of the Heart goes to Hell, will he trail along behind Ted Kennedy like an annoying brat, as he did on the donk convention podium in 1980, waiting for him to acknowledge him? Satan might torture him by having fat Ted ignore him to the enjoyment of the rest of the otherwise miserable souls.

narciso

When possible, I avoid the Godwinning, Catherine, with the help of Potemkin, secured
the lands of the Caucasus, Alexander 1, finished the job, Nicholas 1, and even the good czar made sure to hold that territory.

jimmyk

even Steve Jobs and Gates

No, not them. At least Jobs didn't seem to have much pretense of being a Deep Thinker outside of his area of expertise, whereas Gates imagines himself as that.

jimmyk

I do think we all owe a debt to Gates and Jobs; their PCs/Macs gave us freedom of movement of information, and unlike deficit spending, that has been a huge economic and liberty multiplier.

Thanks for linking that. Some hilarious back and forths in the comments.

What is the sound of one man clapping?

Captain Hate

Erick Erickson harvests some low hanging fruit:

Let us turn our attention to Matthew Yglesias, the Executive Editor of Ezra Klein’s new site. As my friend Pejman Yousefzadeh has well documented, Yglesias is just not that bright. He thinks Joe Lieberman is a dumb Jewish politician; was shocked to discover Senators represent the states as opposed to populations; was unaware of a black conservative tradition; couldn’t understand why Miami didn’t expand westward (hint: a giant swamp); had no idea an incumbent President had been defeated in primaries (Jimmy Carter lost 13 primaries in 1980 to Ted Kennedy and Jerry Brown); thought Bobby Jindal’s reputation for intelligence was just ethnic stereotyping; argued it was okay to lie about having kids; wanted to know why Egypt didn’t have a Parliamentary system as if it’d matter and, by the way, it already does have one; thinks there are too many banks; thinks no banks have been chartered in 2013 even though banks were chartered in 2013; and the list goes on.

Carter is a bigot.

He's just not that smart.

He is a not-nice man.

Won't matter. He'll still be reading from it with the exact same bullshit as now. Clenis hasn't said anything new since he left. Leftist tropes never die.

Ignatz

A few details from Leland Yee's indictment.
He doesn't think US citizens should have pistols but Philippine muslim terrorists should have M16s and RPGs.

How many state senators have to be indicted before somebody can file a RICO suit against the entire CA Dem party?

No he hasn't, and yet they treat his every word, as if it was a unique utterance, they only acknowledge a Republican, 'when needs must' often to attack the opposition,

I'm probably a bad person for always getting a certain satisfaction from someone way smarter than me making a bonehead mistake like I would, but hey, that's just how I...well, you know.

Jane

I dunno, compared to Obama, Carter is da man. Plus he got me to vote for Reagan, so it's not all bad.

So Putin marches on, he figures his free ride will continue until the end of March Madness, and April Fools day, and Celebrity Poker night at the WH, and just about anything else.

Old Lurker

Then you have to add the drying out time for the SS guys to get over their hangovers, Jane.

Then the WH can get down to business.

Well Carter did push deregulation, he did a U-turn on defense spending, after the Afghan invasion,

And Nicaragua, and Iran, and 'the Halloween Massacre' and the CRA, a horror show, all through out.

Old Lurker

Do you think the end of the world guy who wrote the LUN has any idea how many open air tests the US and USSR did with nukes before they went underground?

I have a bunch of pictures of my FIL watching them in Nevada and in the Pacific.

narciso

Well it would solve the global warming problem, but as with the earlier 'nuclear
winter' scenario, the Tretyakov admits Sagan was punked by, I tend to doubt it.

Old Lurker

Answering my own question, Google tells me there were 2400 nuclear bombs tested in the open air from 1945 to the 1990's.

Ignatz

--Do you think the end of the world guy who wrote the LUN has any idea how many open air tests the US and USSR did with nukes before they went underground?--

First, if a small nuclear way reduces temps 3F isn't that a good way to combat climate change?

Second, wouldn't minus 3F put us about back where we were temp wise circa 1900.

Third, significant volcanic events which happen not infrequently pump far more ash [and sulfur dioxide] into the atmosphere then that and somehow we survive.

I wish someone really would declare a war on this kind of "science".

Old Lurker

Me too, Iggy, me too.

Old Lurker

Not to mention he failed to account for the common good accomplished by targeting them correctly.

According to family history, my uncle was the "last man back on the boat" before the 1946 Crossroads nuclear test in the Pacific.

I'm not entirely sure I believe that, but it sounds neat.

Ignatz

Mt Pinatubo alone vaporized 1 cubic mile of rock and ejected 20 million tons of temp dropping sulfur dioxide into the stratosphere. Worldwide temps dropped a bit but somehow mankind survived.

All political debate aside, this WSJ column lays out factually what ObummerCare is --subject to final reporting from th Big Gov Insurers-- about 1 Million previously uninsured added to insurance rolls; mostly older/sicker, with some younger subsidized taking insurance. A like number went from previously INsured to either MediCaid or UNinsured, and 4 Million were kicked off private insurance into Exchange Care some better off, most worse off (personal choice.) That's it... oh... cost to the taxpayers? $100+B/year. For what? mostly MediCaid expansion, but what does the rest go to? It can't be to subsidize --in part-- 1-2Million ExchangeCare insurereds. Even for Dems, this is a gross waste of a gigantic amount of money. Repaeal the damn thing: http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702303802104579451103019884322

Carter was the idiot would had us lining up for a little petrol, and decided it would be a good thing to ration fuel based on odd or even number on your license plate. What to do if you had to travel more than a tankful on a non ration day?

And the moron told us to put on a cardigan, and shiver in the dark.

I still spit on the sidewalk at the mention of his name. Disgusting individual. But Reagan did beat him like a drum AND I am sure that haunts him even today, so there is that.

Robert Laszewski proffers a 404Care obituary in the guise of a guide on using a defibrillator attached to a 7.5kV line to 'save' it.

I find the concept of announcing the requests for double (triple?) digit premium increases for 404Care on a state by state basis over the full month between May 27 and June 27 to be almost as heartwarming as knowing state insurance commissioners will be making announcements regarding the increases allowed from July through October.

Everybody is sure to get a good strong whiff of the Democrat's dead albatross on a regular basis during the entire campaign season.

Iggie, I once worked with a paralegal who thought wearing stiletto heels, pencil thin skirts with large slits up them and low cut tops was appropriate attire for a federal courtroom where her job was largely to bend down and retrieve documents from the file boxes.

I was trying to be charitable, but it is notable even the Simpsons had him as 'American's greatest monster' until W, I think.

NK(withnewsoftware)

RickB-- thanks for that Laszewski link. For the last 6 months I have viewed him as an 'honest broker' of ObummerCare info. But you know that the BigGov insurers won't screw the Dems with 20% rate hikes for 2015, that results in the death spiral for sure. The Insurers will muddle through, they'll push for 7-8% rate increases, and rely on the Bailout payments from ObummerCare to make them whole. They won't make any $$, but they won't be bankrupted either by Exchangecare. They'll kick the can for a year. And that's fine the Repubs will win elections on BAILOUT!! The bigger 2015 issue that comes up in summer/fall 2014 is Group renewals, the cancellations and rate hikes. ObummerCare will cause many small employers to drop coverage altogether or limit rate increases with higher co-pays and deductibles. And those employers will gladly tell everyone it's all because of Obummercare.

Gant was one of the ultimate SF warrior/diplomats. He had tremendous support from Petraeus and changed the paradigm in his part of Afghanistan. But he broke the rules and pissed off a lot of the senior officers.

Just like when CPT Will Swenson got screwed on his MoH because he spoke out about a complete screwup of fire support when he needed it most, the bureaucrats and incompetents have a way of bring those who do not observe every rule in the book down.

Our military is going through this big time now. We are approaching a garrison army just as in 1950, except there are a bunch of malevolent Leftists openly at work tearing it down.

NK,

I disagree wrt probable BluGovIns tactics. They have the Medicaid/Medicare management contracts which were the bribe to accept 404Care in pocket. WellPoint pulled the initial premium increase estimates from the same source Obama uses for his leadership qualities - but they stuck to them, as did almost all the other insurers. They will stick to high double digit increases again in order to protect the employer market by killing 404Care.

They're not going to allow Dr. Emengele's vision of a future without health insurance companies come to pass.

The comments at RB's link are quite depressing.
The only guy calling a spade a spade is an MD and not a single person suggests that junking this mess and freeing markets rather than capturing them might be a better course than trying to salvage the wreck of SS Obamacare, which is only fit to use as an artificial reef to stabilize Guam.

RickB@2:13-- I think the BigGov insurers will do exactly as you say -- IN 2015. After mid-term elections, and Repubs repeal Bailout funding in the 2016 Budget Resolution.

Hell, in 1959 my dad took a task force down off the west coast of South America and torched off a bunch of nukes in the upper atmosphere. The usual suspects warned us our kids were gonna die from Strontium 90 in their milk.

Then in 1962 he set off a bunch more out at Christmas Island in the Central Pacific.

Piece a cake.

--Iggie, I once worked with a paralegal who thought wearing stiletto heels, pencil thin skirts with large slits up them and low cut tops was appropriate attire for a federal courtroom where her job was largely to bend down and retrieve documents from the file boxes.--

Observing how some women treated Mrs Iggy, who dressed quite modestly, simply because she was attractive I don't see how it is anything less than a substantial net negative in a courtroom to dress provocatively. Even a lot of the guys who ogle them are simultaneously upset at the unprofessionalism.

I signed up for new comment email alerts to the judge's blog post and feel sorry for the poor guy as the marching morons continue to slap him around for observing human nature.

OL:
Answering my own question, Google tells me there were 2400 nuclear bombs tested in the open air from 1945 to the 1990's.

Have you seen the vid of every nuclear explosion through 1998?

Numbers might be a bit different, it has 2,053 as the total through 1998, but according to the video...

  • First one in 1945 of course.
  • The world reached 10 in early 1951
  • 100 by March of 1956
  • 500 by November of 1962
  • 1,000 by December of 1969
  • 1,500 by February of 1979
  • 2,000 by June of 1990

    For extra credit...

  • In December of 1988, the 1,000th US nuclear explosion took place
  • In November 1989, the 1,989th explosion took place
  • Of the 2,053 nuclear explosions, the US accounts of 1,062 of them.
