Loved it Publius - Merry Christmas!

Nice to see you Specter.

I am here when I can. I read JOM regularly but rarely have free minutes to post...Maybe this coming year will be different. New position with more...uh....freedom of time.


It took 18 months, but Santa got this to me before Christmas. : )

Beasts of England

Daughters just dropped of my last Christmas present. A YETI cooler! It's bear proof! Whoop, whoop!


LOL, Publius.
Had to watch who we wised off to in the logbooks in the AF. Some of those plane drivers don't have a great sense of humor, but the majority do.
Surprisingly a few COs were somewhat humorless as well.


Ignatz Service Log narratives.... those I would have liked to have seen back in the day.


Is Susan Rice Obama's girlfriend? What else explains it?



Wouldn't he have a published 'selfie' if that were the case? /sarc

Racism is exstinked in 'Merica.

"Justine's dad is apologeti & basically in tears."I decided to raise her in the US. SA was too racist". Oh, the irony!"



Now this is funny. At least it is to me after all the time I've spent in court.
In a criminal trial the prosecution filed a motion to prevent the defense from referring to the prosecution as "the government".
The defense attorney responded in part as follows;

...if the court is “inclined to let the parties basically pick their own designations and ban words, then the defense has a few additional suggestions for amending the speech code.”

“the Defendant no longer wants to be called ‘the Defendant,’” a term that has “a fairly negative connotation” that “unfairly demeans and dehumanizes” Powell. Instead, defense counsel suggested that Powell “should be addressed only by his full name, preceded by the title ‘Mister.’” Alternatively, defense counsel suggested, Powell could be referred to as “the Citizen Accused,” adding that the designation “that innocent man” would also be acceptable.

Next, the defense attorney turned to how he wished to be referred to in court, rather than as a “lawyer” or as a “defense attorney:”

"Rather, counsel for the Citizen Accused should be referred to primarily as the “Defender of the Innocent.” This title seems particularly appropriate, because every Citizen Accused is presumed innocent. Alternatively, counsel would also accept the designation “Guardian of the Realm.” Further, the Citizen Accused humbly requests an appropriate military title for his own representative, to match that of opposing counsel. Whenever addressed by name, the name “Captain Justice” will be appropriate. While less impressive than “General,” still, the more humble term seems suitable. After all, the Captain represents only a Citizen Accused, whereas the General represents an entire State."

Counsel – or should I say the Defender of the Realm -- then moved on to the use of term “defense” because “the whole idea of being defensive comes across to most people as suspicious” So to “prevent the jury from being unfairly misled by this ancient English terminology, the opposition to the Plaintiff hereby names itself ‘the Resistance.’” This terminology “need only extend throughout the duration of the trial – not to any pretrial motions” as “during its heroic struggle against the State, the Resistance goes on the attack, not just the defense.”

Having completed his arguments, defense counsel wound up his Opposition by saying that “Captain Justice, Defender of the Realm and Leader of the Resistance primarily asks this Court to deny the State’s motion as lacking legal basis.” In the alternative, “the Citizen Accused moves for an order in limine modifying the speech code as aforementioned and requiring any other euphemisms and feel-good terms the Court finds appropriate.”

In CA the prosecution is referred to as "the People." i know of at least one instance where a defense lawyer tried to get the judge to disallow that term, but failed.

So, I'm reading through the owner's manual for my new cooler and it includes a few testimonials from guides and such. At the bottom of p. 13 is an endorsement by: Phil Robertson, Duck Commander! Love it!


Odd, about Ryan. I read yesterday he said it was an error which will be corrected when Congress returns.


I hope you use FMJs in that thing Henry, or there won't be much left of the ducks.


Mikhail Kalashnikov, Inventor Of AK-47, Dead At 94

Kalashnikov was quoted as saying in 2007, "I sleep well. It's the politicians who are to blame for failing to come to an agreement and resorting to violence."
blah, blah blah.

No worse than Chernobyl...right?

"Among those who voiced alarm was Toshihide Tsuda, a professor of epidemiology at Okayama University. He called upon the government to prepare for a possible increase in cases in the future.

"The rate at which children in Fukushima prefecture have developed thyroid cancer can be called frequent, because it is several times to several tens of times higher," the newspaper quoted him as saying.

He compared the figures in Fukushima with cancer registration statistics throughout Japan from 1975 to 2008 that showed an annual average of five to 11 people in their late teens to early 20s developing cancer for every 1 million people.

Tetsuya Ohira, a professor of epidemiology at Fukushima Medical University, disagreed. It was not scientific to compare the Fukushima tests with cancer registry statistics, he argued.

In November, prefectural officials deemed it unlikely that the increase in suspected and confirmed cases of cancer was linked to radiation exposure.

In the Chernobyl disaster of 1986, it was not until four or five years after the accident that thyroid cancer cases surged."


The msm loves to tack "clan" onto Duck Commander/Robertson. If they've ever referred to the Kennedy clan, I've missed it.

A+E producer of Duck Dynasty appeared in a gay film titled 'The Fluffer'. Seriously.


Ig, good call. Save expanding ammo for deer. Where you are, the regs may spec these, or the rifle equivalent.

James D.

There were some comments about Eliot Spitzer in the previous thread, and his wife, poor humiliated Silda.

I've got a question: does anyone here think that Silda ever lost even a moment of sleep, even one time, worrying about the humiliation of the families of people her husband was prosecuting, or the fear those people felt, or the difficulties they faced in getting their lives back together after her husband was done with them?

I kind of doubt it.

do you think, even now, after everything that's happened to her, that she gives the slightest thought to the people who - rightly or wrongly - ended up in her husband's crosshairs when he was a prosecutor, or their families? I doubt that, too.

James D.

Thinking about the Ryan deal, and how he and Boehner and our Top Men are so aggrevied that conservatives have some issues with it...

There actually is one thing that the President said that we as conservatives can take to heart, in complete seriousness.

Remember when, early in his first term, he said to liberal interest groups that they needed to "push" him, in order to get the things they wanted done?

He was absolutely right, and it's a lesson that Boehner et al really need to learn. That's part of the job of the party base - to constantly push. To never be satisfied. To make sure the leadership understands that it is NOT safe, and their seats are NOT safe, and that the votes, and money, and manpower of the base cannot be taken for granted.

And it's even more true for conservatives than progressives, because the nature of government is always to grow. The nature of bureauracy is always to expand, and to spend every penny it can get its hands on. The nature of people who seek political power is to hang on to it, and to try and increase it, and bring more spheres of life under their control.

That's all just human nature. It works in favor of prog goals, and against our goals. So we need to constantly attack, not just the Dems but also our own elected officials, whenever they show the slightest sign of being captured by the Beltway. It may not be fun for Boehner and Ryan and all the rest, but we didn't elect them to have fun.


no, of course not. she was in the front ranks as he went against those malefactors of wealth.

wow Specter and Publius. Must be the holidays. good to see you back.

‘Duck Dynasty’ family members contractually bound to A&E, source says reported in August that the family was able to secure big salary increases, earning more than $200,000 an episode, divvied up among the nine adults and 11 kids on the show. That is roughly four to five times what the Robertsons previously made. And the deal is said to include additional seasons as well as cast options.

Is that all they make? That can't be right.

Robertson, who says he is a staunchly devoted Christian, came under enormous fire last week from activist groups after he made very graphic, negative comments about homosexual sex. But his suspension also ignited an outcry over freedom of speech and one's constitutional right to voice his faith and beliefs.
Were they really "very graphic, negative" comments? That reporter was from FoxNews, btw.

Sounds like pretty decent pay per episode to me, Extraneus. Wonder what they were paying Ozzy?


When they make shells that shoot oranges for the ducks and grapes for the quail I might order some up, Henry. :)

In other holiday news, one of my girlfriends has wrangled me into being the bartender and elf for a holiday hen party this evening. It's a dirty Santa party. Although knowing her and her friends, it'll be more dirty than Santa...

Amazing how desperate the troll is to discuss anything but Obama's failure.

Very graphic? Guess they missed the episode where Phil I think it was goes to school for parents day (Willie got him to go for him) and skinned an animal live in the classroom pointing out all the organs and stuff. No euphemisms employed there either.

The disgusted looks on the girls faces was priceless when he pointed out this is what food looks like before it appears in cellophane packaging.

blah, blah blah.

Jet stream makes it more dangerous for Wisconsin, than Calif.

Now, nearly three years after their deployment on a humanitarian mission to Japan’s ravaged coast, Cooper and scores of her fellow crew members on the aircraft carrier and a half-dozen other support ships are battling cancers, thyroid disease, uterine bleeding and other ailments.

“We joked about it: ‘Hey, it’s radioactive snow!’ ” Cooper recalled. “I took pictures and video.”

But now “my thyroid is so out of whack that I can lose 60 to 70 pounds in one month and then gain it back the next,” said Cooper, fighting tears. “My menstrual cycle lasts for six months at a time, and I cannot get pregnant. It’s ruined me.”
The fallout of those four days spent off the Fukushima coast has been tragic to many of the 5,000 sailors who were there.
At least 70 have been stricken with some form of radiation sickness, and of those, “at least half . . . are suffering from some form of cancer,” their lawyer, Paul Garner, told The Post Saturday.

“We’re seeing leukemia, testicular cancer and unremitting gynecological bleeding requiring transfusions and other intervention,” said Garner, who is representing 51 crew members suing the Tokyo Electric Power Co., which operates the Fukushima Daiichi energy plant.

“Then you have thyroid polyps, other thyroid diseases,” added Garner, who plans to file an amended lawsuit in federal court in San Diego next month that will bring the number of plaintiffs past
Senior Chief Michael Sebourn, a radiation-decontamination officer, was assigned to test the aircraft carrier for radiation.

The levels were incredibly dangerous and at one point, the radiation in the air measured 300 times higher than what was considered safe, Sebourn told The Post.


$10K per episode? Sure, the big stars probably make more. $20K?


Those "gripsheet" maintenance log funnies originated as being from Qantas. I think I saw it the first time about 5 years ago.

Iggy's right about air maintenance logs in the AF but on buffers there is little humor alllowed because of the special cargo that is flown. Lots of nickel and dime paperwork can make your line crew pretty humorless. Plus as my first CO told me - you don't joke about his shit!

blah, blah blah.

"Amazing how desperate the troll is to discuss anything but Obama's failure."

You have something in common with Obama.

--No worse than Chernobyl...right?--

Chernobyl comparison;

A 2012 analysis of the intermediate and long-lived radiation released found about 10-20% of that released from the Chernobyl disaster.[154][155]

Radiation deaths at Chernobyl were also statistically undetectable. Only 0.1% of the 110,000 cleanup workers surveyed had as of 2012 developed leukemia, although not all cases resulted from the accident.[182]

Data from Chernobyl showed that there was a steady then sharp increase in thyroid cancer rates following the disaster in 1986, however whether this data can be directly compared to Fukushima is yet to be determined.[177][178]

Chernobyl thyroid cancer incidence rates did not begin to increase above the prior baseline value of about 0.7 cases per 100,000 people per year until 1989 to 1991, 3–5 years after the incident in both adolescent and child age groups.[177][178] From 1989 to 2005, an excess of 4,000 children and adolescent cases of thyroid cancer were observed. Nine of these had died as of 2005, a 99% survival rate.[183]


I am devastated about this Ketel One thing.

Beasts of England

It's usually one at a time, Steph. ;)

blah, blah blah.

Your trust of government-controlled (Soviet,or otherwise) info undermines your putative 'libertarian' status.

"Given previous work by scientists in former Soviet bloc nations, the results were not unexpected to Mousseau and Møller. "There's extensive literature from Eastern Europe about the effects of the release of radionuclides in Chernobyl," Mousseau said.

"Unfortunately, very little of it was translated into English, and many of the papers -- which were printed on paper, not centrally stored, and never digitized -- became very hard to find because many of the publishers went belly up in the 1990s with the economic recession that followed the breakup of the Soviet Union."
A large body of this work finally came to the attention of Western scientists in 2009 with the publication of "Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and the Environment" as a monograph in the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences.

"That publication was a response to the World Health Organization's Chernobyl Forum in 2006, which explicitly states that they found that the plant and animal communities in Chernobyl were doing incredibly well and have come back better than ever, because of the absence of people," Mousseau said. "But when you dug into the Chernobyl Forum report to find out what they based this conclusion on, there were NO scientific papers to support it."

Rob Crawford

"You can't fix stupid."

God knows I've tried to fix you.

blah, blah blah.

Next, you'll be quoting the IAEA, lapdogs of the Nuke Industry.


Other then that, they were telling the truth;


--Your trust of government-controlled (Soviet,or otherwise) info undermines your putative 'libertarian' status.--

Your neglecting to include the very next paragraph from your own source;

The Eastern European compilation published in 2009 ran contrary to that positive assessment, but it lacked elements of scientific rigor in places. "It is the best summary of the papers that have been generated in Eastern Europe, and it's an important body of work for understanding Chernobyl," Mousseau said. "But there were some problems -- for example, with the lack of statistical treatment. We're using these studies as a bit of a guide, but trying to do them in a thorough way, better than anyone's done them before.

confirms your status as a deceptive propagandist.


I was a classic facepalm from earlier in the year;

See, the deal is you just can't say anything negative.

It's sorta the same with discussing Christianity in public schools. In that case, you just can't say anything positive.

In both cases you can blah,blah,blah your head off as long as you promote the correct leftist thinking.

"Manufactured intelligence isn't smart. It's stupid. It's as stupid as building windmills for sustainable energy in places where the wind hardly blows, as stupid as calling inflated budgets "investments" and as stupid as believing that a man is smart because he can reference poverty in the Third World."

Remind you of anyone here? [No clues, but your best guesss is truth].

Team Syeyn seems to be slattering Team Steorts,


Didn't someone here tell us about getting into an elevator in Manhattan and Spitzer stepped in before the doors closed? I have a faint memory of that and thre person was visiting someone in the building Spitzer lived in or something like that?!

BTW, out of the blue, my 10 year old son asked me how to make a "Dry Martini". Yikes! Where the heck did that come from? "I want to be a barkeeper when I grow up".

So, for Mrs. JiB, I made a small dry martini and showed Frederick how to do it. He didn't understand why I didn't take the cap off the Vermouth and just used the bottle to bless the gin. But he totally liked spearing the olives - one for mom and one for me:)

Huh? Put your thinking cap on and try again. You're the consistent enabler insisting Chernobyl was a kerfluffle. I just showed the flawed and redacted data associated with 'studies'.

I don't recall riding an elevator with Spitzer, but he was a complete prick to us conservatives in a NY Bar Association committee back in 89-90. He also humiliated the Lib Chairman (honest Lib) who was his childhood buddy. Spitzer is a disgusting thing.

Spitzer-- oh plus he personally dragged me away from my family vacation in August 2004 when he was Atty Gen, with the timing of a motion to the State's highest court, after I won a significant appeal against the Atty Gen with big political implications. He won out in the end-- in 2007 after he was elected governor, he reversed the Court by adopting new regulations, I ultimately lost the challenge to those Regs. He's a canker sore.

--Huh? Put your thinking cap on and try again. You're the consistent enabler insisting Chernobyl was a kerfluffle. I just showed the flawed and redacted data associated with 'studies'.--

Read slowly and use your finger if necessary; you linked to and quoted a source contending Chernobyl was much more serious than the WHO or UNSCEAR had concluded. You quoted a couple of paragraphs of it to support your contention. You omitted the paragraph immediately following it which pointed out the research they were relying on was poor science and the statistics were unusable.
When I pointed out what your own source said about the papers they used to support your POV, you ridiculed your own paper and now either through confusion or duplicity continue to do so even after I explained it to you.

--BTW; Instead of playing with yourself, why don't you do a little counter-intuitive research?--

I did. Unlike you apparently, I read the very link you provided to support your contention. And then, also unlike you I read the paper they linked that they based their conclusions on and as they intimated it was an unscientific joke full of wild unsupported and unsupportable claims.
Your comments and your sources do have that in common.


That NRO article was dead on. The sneers of the educated morons of the Left are a strong disincentive to STFU for conservatives as has been amply demonstratedby the GLAAD douches (Duces?. like

That's where WFB had them. He was unafraid, like Breitbart, and willing to tweak their noses while the rapier went in the gut.

Unfortunately people like Rockefeller were just more of that same oligarchy who paid little attention to substance and much to style and fashion that we have today.

A combination of sincere Marxism mixed with a vitriolic hatred of the best of our old values and academic stipends allows a complete divorce from reality.

Ask some of the former subjects of the Soviets or even a Dutchman facing the partial dismantling of their social safety net how socialism really plays out in the real world.

History to these people, along with logic, does not exist.


OT Technical question for our Tech JOMers.

The only other website I have regular problems with is which BTW is the only other site I can still post at.

It has become exceptionally slow loading, and once I click on the homepage or on any story from there, my computer speed is drastically reduced, and I frequently have to shut down and restart and then just go to the particular article I was reading to beat that slowdown and recover my normal computer speed.

Does that happen to any of the rest of you guys, and if so, do you think it is just because of all the links at that website, or for some other reason?

Extraneus is it you never get tired of making a complete ass of yourself?

Asses are as asses do, Ig.


I>"you ridiculed your own paper and now either through confusion or duplicity continue to do so even after I explained it to you"

I suppose it is possible that cleo is capable of regurgitating postmodern leftist drivel but you have to remember this is the clown who once said "It's not like algebra where a negative plus a negative is positive".


Daddy, my guess is the ads served to JOM and Lucianne slow things down. A quick refresh on a slow load often loads quickly (new ad rotation).


What browser are you using, daddy?

Firefox sometimes gets bulky for me. (Takes up lots of memory, slowing down the computer.) If you're on a PC, ctrl-alt-delete has a Task Manager option. In there, you can find firefox.exe and right click it to End Process. Then you can re-start firefox without rebooting your computer.

blah, blah blah.

"you linked to and quoted a source contending Chernobyl was much more serious than the WHO or UNSCEAR had concluded"

OK. Let's just cut the bullshit down a little.

Don't weave and bob. Just give me your best shot, in unparsed and clear language.

Which event has the greater impact, on a wider geography; Fukushima or Chernobyl? It's a simple question answerable in but one sentence. Don't do your usual flamenco dance. Just answer the fukin question.



Your comment above about our post WFB Republicans, reminds me of the movie we watched as a family last night (The Bridge On The River Kwai), and makes me think that it's the Tea Party guys like Breitbart and Steyn in the end getting shot trying to blow up the Bridge and stop the Alec Guinness (RINO) types from mindlessly trying to protect the Bridge that'll allow the Japanese (Progressives/Left) to win the war. Not a perfect analogy, but Steorts seems to me to be an Alec Guinness type.


Wouldn't you know my attempt to answer daddy's question got Typepadded. Try again:

Probably some combination of ads and/or ad-blocking software. You can try running some anti-spyware like Malwarebytes. I've found my computer sometimes runs faster after a reboot, for what that's worth.



If Liberalism is a mental disease then all you have to do is yell Stop It!

Believe me, it works.


Spitzer was never governor, was he?


"Which event has the greater impact ..."

Yes, denounce your daughter so that Socialism advances, comrade. Socialism first, Socialism always--family meh.


Hardly anyone makes them, but I actually prefer a "wet" martini; some bartenders think I am making a poor joke, but I actually like the taste of vermouth, so I prefer a 50-50 mixture. Classic martini is 2/3- one third; anything with less than 1/3 vermouth is dry. A great variation is a Hearst, a martini with sweet vermouth.
