Looking like Nick Sandman & Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgements proving out to be false - smeared by media. Not good, but making big comeback! “New footage shows that media was wrong about teen’s encounter with Native American” @TuckerCarlson

I was born in 1953 and my draft lottery number was 295.

A roommate's was 3. He joined ROTC, as it at least gave you some control over your destiny.

I registered for the draft when Carter reinstated registration in 1980. As I recall, I just made the age cutoff for having to register. Decades later I recall being asked on government forms whether I had registered; it was nice to be able to (honestly) say yes.

Buckeye,
KK says only bones carry the bad ju-ju.
Which is good because we dug up all sorts of arrow heads and beads.

The Indians around here used acorns as their staple crop. There are all sorts of large limestone and granite outcroppings known as grinding rocks where they ground the acorns into flour. They wore holes into the rocks 6-10 inches deep and about 6 inches in diameter as they did the ol mortar and pestle thing.
Now they dig deep holes in Asian's pockets at the local casino, while another large one goes up about 15 miles away.

I don't think KK was in any way excusing the guy.
I took him to mean, if the guy is honorable [unlikely IMO] or at least capable of shame, he'll make amends.
If not there will be consequences from his own people and [I'm less sure on this part] the spiritual realm.
Guy seems like a bit of a nutjob to me.

What gets me going are the attitudes of those like Kristol, Boot and others, because they seem to think that the troops (made up of those groups who don't attend Beltway soirees) are simply expendable pegs in a table top war game. I think Carlson feels the same way.

rich, I think if he did serve and had said he was a "Vietnam era" vet and left it at that, it would have been extremely lame but not stolen valor level.

Unfortunately for him I don't think he stopped there. Around the time of the pipeline protests he was saying he was a "recon ranger," whatever that means.

I know Black Don't Crack but how did these four thirty something Black Israelites get characterized as both young and old?

"There was that moment when I realized I've put myself between beast and prey," Phillips said. "These young men were beastly and these old black individuals was their prey, and I stood in between them and so they needed their pounds of flesh and they were looking at me for that."

iirc it was '73 but the rules were changed significantly by '71 ... i think the age cohort by most likely to get selected was 21,20,19,24,23,22,25,18 ...this is based on memory from stolen valor. 17 year olds could volunteer but weren't drafted.

Posted by: Buckeye | January 21, 2019 at 10:19 PM

Buckeye,

I was born in December of that year. I turned 18 in 1971 and was eligible for the draft in 1972. I had a draft number in the high 300's the prior year and high 20's when I became eligible. If memory serves me correctly, because of the down-sizing, they only drafted into the teens.

The 1971 and 1973 dates sound correct to me as to when the Marines were pulled from combat and eventually withdrawn.

Marines did remain at the Saigon US Embassy until April 30, 1975.

Overall I find his service in Vietnam unlikely. I'll wait on an FOIA.

Jim,

That's an interesting take on the 2nd Amendment. It may have been that they wanted to emphasize what many thought was a pre-existing right.

When militias were brought into existence you were required to provide your own gun. Powder and shot was provided by the government.

Prior to that though you can infer that every family was its' own primary defense force. It seems to me that given that condition you had a right to possess any weapon needed to defend yourself.

I don't think that people would oppose the militia as the locals were the militia. Officers were elected and it would be in your own best interest to vote for the best men available. Preferably someone with experience.

Perhaps there was a thought that the militias might be regulated in such a fashion that not every male 16-60 was included.

"Activity has also slowed lately at many export-oriented factories. Many rushed to ship goods to the United States before a feared increase in tariffs on Jan. 1 that did not end up happening, filling warehouses with surplus goods."

"Some economists note that the biggest factor driving the weakness in retail sales in China, which by some estimates has accounted for half or more of the entire slowdown, is a sharp fall in auto sales."

Catching up---I'm interested in seeing where what I read as KK's explanation of Phillips that so many read as a defense of him goes.


Great to see Sandy as always, but a Catholic saying passing the pipe sounds like voo doo?

Lapsed Protestant AB politely raised the issue, but this cradle Catholic is going to give some examples that I wrote but conked out before posting last night:

Wonder what Confirmation and Communion look like to others?
You know, those sacraments that instill grace?

That Virgin birth?
Stigmata?
Plenary indulgences?
Mass itself? Water and wine becoming the body and blood of Christ is a bridge too far for a whole lot of Christians, you know. One that we don't share with non-believers. Kind like the pipe, no?

That faith thing----pretty nebulous.
And truly a gift. An incredible gift.

And in the face of continuing scientific documentation of the "placebo effect"---believing does cause things to happen.

In November 1944, 36 men reported to the University of Minnesota as volunteers for a 13-month study under research scientist Ancel Keys. What became known as the Minnesota Starvation Experiment has long been cited as perhaps the most important study on the mental, physical, and social effects of food restriction. The rapid deterioration, the strange and often alarming changes in the subjects' behavior, and the long-lasting effects of "semi-starvation" are hallmarks to anyone familiar with disordered eating.

"Exactly 226 years after the decapitation of King Louis XVI, who failed to quell popular discontent over a France’s feudal society, President Emmanuel Macron started his speech at a pre-Davos dinner at Versailles by invoking the king and his wife Marie-Antoinette. Macron, speaking to an audience that included J.P. Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon, Snapchat chief Evan Spiegel and Microsoft boss Satya Nadella, said he would not follow the path of guillotined French royals and would continue to reform the French economy despite occasional violent revolt."

Wow, I went out earlier this evening for a beer walk. I guess it's abut a thousand yards one way. Damn near froze. Got back home and checked the weather. 9 degrees and the wind was howling with gusts up to 30 MPH.

Hopefully it will be warmer tomorrow as I need to vote against a school bond issue. The Board of Ed wants to borrow $170 million to refurbish older buildings and build a new Junior High.

The wankers included in the language of the bond issue question that it would cost the average homeowner $300. They left out the "per year" part over the life of the bond.

One political faction controls our city government. An older one controls the Board of Ed. Figure in 1%, or so, of graft, kickbacks and donations and you get a nice little war-chest to mount a challenge against the city government.

Catholic Boarding School childhood, followed by the Vietnam war and alcoholism, gave Nathan Phillips, aka Sky Man according to his Native American Omaha belief, a good reason to be angry with the world. He managed to move on by meeting his Earth woman but now that the family is fighting cancer, his anger is growing.
The film’s initial plan is to follow the family and Nathan’s belief that he can pray cancer away from his wife via traditional healing techniques. Along the way plans change drastically as the desperate husband sees the film as his only way out.

A moving family story tackling contemporary battles which Native Americans fight and one of the common ethical dilemmas documentary filmmakers face – can we interfere or should we solely document reality?

No one seems to understand why Trump was able to win. It wasn't because he was rich. It was because people felt like they knew him and he went TO the people with those rallies. People could tell he liked the average guy and understood their problems.

Now he has demonstrated that he keeps his promises, something no politicians do, which will give him even more backing.
