Jack is Back!

We as an independent country of laws need to finally elimanate the judicial branch that never existed in our Constituion. These black robed terrorist have no love for our constituion or democracy. They need to be run out on rails, detailed in tar and feathers;

Condolences, Rocco.

Terrific T-storm here in NYC. Heavy rain and winds, came out of nowhere.

Cool JiB! My hoops memories start with seeing Wilt and the Sixers destroy the St Louis Hawks on my birthday, followed by seeing Darrel Dawkins shatter a backboard into my beer at the Spectrum, with Dr J sparkling in the easily 80s. Also saw Jordan in Chicago (mom took me). College hoops daw UCLA (Walton) crush NC State in the NCAAs. (Might have been the NITs, SI had it on the cover).

jimmyk

Weird, because the Mets are on TV, apparently not raining in Queens. Torrential rains in Manhattan.

Ok, now the rain just hit Citi field.

Buckeye, Lew Alcindor, decided to be a Muslim and something of an Intellectual. Fame, fortune, more money and women than you could imagine, never satisfied him. Yet he accepted all of the trappings and treated people shabbily.

He "still hasn't found, what he's looking for".

Ironically, he isn't looked upon as fondly as he could have been. All-time leading scorer, several MVP's, several WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS, movies, commercials, etc etc. STILL NOT HAPPY

College hoops daw UCLA (Walton) crush NC State in the NCAAs. (Might have been the NITs, SI had it on the cover).

UCLA didn't go to the NITs while Walton was there. They did lose to iNCeST in Walton's senior year as the Wolfpack prevailed in the championship game against Al McGuire's Marquette team.

matt - deplore me if you must

When I was a kid I was (and still am) a huge b-ball fan. Villanova was right down the road and I spent a lot of time at the field house. My first pro game was a package deal, six games maybe, for the Sixers for Christmas. All by my lonesome. Used to take the train to take the bus to the Spectrum.

One of those games was the Bucks and for some reason I had a 2nd row seat right on the aisle. Alcindor (I think he was still Alcindor at that point) walked right by me. Tallest man I had ever seen to that point.

Can't remember who won but the Sixers were pretty bad.

Was a huge UCLA fan as well, which really conflicted me when 'Nova played them in the NCAA championship game in '71. Someone had given me a Villanova letter jacket and I wore it through college. I was being recruited by them for track and used to run with Liquori and the team on warmups sometimes since they were right near our school.

But in the end I had to get outta Philly and see the elephant in NYC, which I certainly did. Got to see various college and pro teams play at the Garden and it was all downhill from there. Got to see Clyde at his peak. That was probably the last time NYC was basketball nirvana.

JiB: "We as an independent country of laws need to finally elimanate the judicial branch that never existed in our Constitution"

This is mostly about BrExit, and quite lucid. But there's also a fascinating section about the pitfalls of giving courts too much authority. I was not aware of how limited the Brit judicial branch had been historically.
https://www.claremont.org/crb/article/why-hasnt-brexit-happened-yet/

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

If you are interested but no time to read the whole thing, look for this.

"And there was an even larger problem than the loss of national sovereignty, Bogdanor shows. The E.U. destroyed the system of parliamentary sovereignty at the heart of Britain’s constitution. For all its royalist trappings, Britain has traditionally been a much purer representative democracy than the United States, because it excludes courts from reviewing legislation on any grounds."

There's quite a bit more in the following sections

My Grandfather, my Paternal Grandfather, was an Irish immigrant to Phila. He never finished High School, but he did end up being a SENIOR VP of SALES and MARKETING for a major corp.

WHAT A SHITHOLE. Henry had GREAT STORIES of his youthful career and a specific GHETTO CRUISER that he owned. He even had pictures on his phone all these years later.

Interesting on the different Lutheran Synods. As a Catholic, I'm no authority on any Protestant denomination, but I might have an insight for some of you. In studying genealogy in New Netherland, now NY, you can't help but become aware of religion.

In New Yotk's earliest history the predominant churches were Reformed Dutch and Lutheran. Catholic churches didn't exist, although a priest might sneak down from Canada.

All of the first pastors were ordained in Europe. Most of their replacements also. It took a while before they started ordaining American pastors.

All of the services were conducted in Dutch.

I am not sure what church the Huegenots belonged to, but I assume their services were conducted in French.

Over time, after the English gained control, English-speaking churches would have sprouted up. Episcopalian, Anglican, etc. Around 1709, Britain shipped about 3,000 German refugees to NY, thus German-speaking congregations arose.

Eventually, all of these churches freed themselves from European control and set up their own American-based hierarchies and seminaries.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Brunswick_Theological_Seminary
Reformed

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lutheran_Theological_Seminary_at_Gettysburg
Lutheran, but possibly not the first

So you have churches of different existing religious denominations, some of them not using English until a few generations later.

New American religions arising and after a time, some older churches uniting with newer churches in using English everywhere.

While some churches were uniting, others rising, some old ones wound up with different hierarchies.

The divisions could have been due to differences in theology, personal clashes, of difference in geography.

Nowadays the divides seem to be liberal vs. traditional.

Dave (in MA)

A guy I used to work with is about as devout Nazarene as you can be, and I just checked his FB photo gallery and there's lotsa shorts pics. Are there regional differences? His degree is from a Nazarene college in Idaho, and his father was a pastor in Maine.

I'm reminded of a prior article that said the Air Force won't support 4 different bomber fleets. At least one will be retired. There are only 20 B-2 stealth bombers. Probably the first to go.

There are about 62 active non-stealth B-iB's left, with a bunch more in storage.

There are about 58 active non-stealth B-52'S, 18 in reserve and more carcasses available for a re-build if needed.

I think the B-52 will fly longer than the B-1B's and B-2's. They are less expensive to operate and have more carrying capacity. Some predict they will still be in use 30 years from now.

Narciso,

I did see the article that suggests the PLA has maxed out it's investment in the artificial islands.

They seem to be configured as forward reconnaissance and offensive missile bases.

I've been puzzling over them for a while. I don't think they are defensible. One or two missiles from subs or other source could take them all out at once. I think the Marines could launch near simultaneous attacks on all of them and take them that way.

I don't know what approach we would take. Do we want to seize the islands to hem in the PLA Navy?

Well Chinese missiles could be launched at the islands if we took them. Do we believe we can put in enough air defense to secure the islands?

I don't know how it would work in the back and forth of a war, but I can't see the Chinese re-taking the islands and I can see the Marines eventually owning them. Assuming, that any part of the fake islands survive.

And if you want to wander into the realm of irony, did some brilliant Chinese strategist build a defensive perimeter only to have another brilliant Chinese strategist war-game this with a better red team and ask why they built US Marine bases so close to China.
