How far over the cliff of common sense have we gone, this far:

Sprinkles. Yep, sprinkles

matt - deplore me if you must

I hope that article is correct, Clarice, for the sake of the nation.

Banning sprinkles but not riots; a Transportation Secretary who's on maternity leave but is "ultra-available" on anything but the transportation crisis; Psaki welcomes the "competition" from Chinese hypersonic rockets.

So we'll have 5 minutes warning of Armageddon instead of 30? I really don't see much change. Maybe that's why the X-37B is sitting up there. The first rule of Space Club is you don't discuss Space Club.

The Chinese and Russians have been making huge noise about this, but DARPA has been noodling this stuff since my dad briefly ran it in the 1960's.

And until they figure out the need for 10-20 additional Gw to run those 'lectric cars, I don't think we should be worrying about 'lectric cars.

And until they condemn a few hundred or thousand beachfront homes of the rich and infamous, I don't think we should worry about global warming. Wake me up when beachfront property prices come down.

'The Chinese and Russians have been making huge noise about this, but DARPA has been noodling this stuff since my dad briefly ran it in the 1960's.'

NASA as well.

Hypersonic research aircraft and such- always a budgetary issue, of course, but the research and technology to develop is there. It's simply a matter of priorities and good management pulling it all together along with, as Von Braun always said, 'the will to do it." But then the ever present counterpoint, "No bucks; no Buck Rogers."

'Course w/DoD selling off aircraft carriers for scrap at a penny a piece, the place is run like McHale's Navy.

https://eugyppius.substack.com/p/maximum-vaccination
FTA:f you want to lower hospitalisations and deaths, in other words, the difference between vaccinating 40% of your population and 80% of your population is not nearly as great as it seems. In fact, as you move to ever lower-risk cohorts, the volume of vaccinations required to reduce deaths grows in inverse proportion to the deaths you are reducing. This is the phenomenon of diminishing returns. It means that if you have vaccinated all the olds and sicks and an additional 50% or 70% of everyone, AND you are still suffering from a raging pandemic of the unvaccinated, there are probably not enough immunologically naive people left to give you a hope of vaccinating your way out.

The unspeakable truth is that the vaccines don’t suppress case rates at all. We have long known that their efficacy against infection fades to zero after week 20, but even at the high point — the first month after dose 2 — the protection is sure to be vastly overstated. This would be why even academic journals are starting to run pieces with titles like “Increases in COVID-19 are unrelated to levels of vaccination across 68 countries and 2947 counties in the United States”:

Boris, I agree with your 10:40 and 12;48--I truly at the moment thought the beauty of the election and its triumph would make the GOP be useful, which they were colossally NOT--so the more fool I.

Quote found at Ace:

“While I have never painted before, Hunter has inspired me to immediately begin painting because I’ve always felt I have a talent at that, and could surely get at least $2 million dollars per canvas—and probably a lot more. I will begin immediately. Our Country is crooked as hell! President Donald Trump"

If so, just more confirmation of the legend of Trump.
I pity the fools like Goldberg and Putterico who can't enjoy the pure entertainment of the Golden Scalp Weasel.

When the Democrats run the table in the MidTerms, and they will, we well may end up with strange bedfellows.

Can you clarify this, Mel?

Are you saying they’re going to run the table b/c of massive fraud and outright theft of the elections? Or because the GOP is so catastrophically stupid (and/or complicit with the Dems) that they will botch what ought to be an un-loseable election?

Davod

"“The military doesn’t care that the military left. What the military cares about is leaving people behind. It’s not in the military’s nature. The Woke generals have violated an oath that’s been in place for nearly 200 years. That’s why many veterans are coming apart, because how do you square this with our military tradition? You can’t. In my opinion, Biden made a deal with the Taliban to get out. But why?

[Look for a Hunter section in the Afghanistan gallery of art. Actually, the only art in the gallery, because the Taliban don't like art]

“For those involved in the withdrawal, it had to have been heart-wrenching to know that you’re leaving your people behind because it goes against everything we’ve been taught.”
