    TGBDS: Epic Randomness

    PD...have you recovered from the wedding yet?

    Congress is apparently trying to restore this program in the next budget. With bipartisan support, even. We'll see. http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2018/05/nasa-climate-science-program-trump-axed-house-lawmakers-just-moved-restore-it

    Oops... Air Force loses crate of grenades on an Indian reservation then loses track of medium machine gun. For anyone who's ever been to Minot, this is perhaps understandable. A more mind numbing place (high prairie which bakes in the summer and goes arctic in the winter) doing more mind numbing tasks (guarding missile silos on a vast, uninhabited prairie) is hard to imagine. https://www.airforcetimes.com/news/your-air-force/2018/05/18/minot-air-force-base-loses-machine-gun-two-weeks-after-losing-grenade-launcher-ammo/

    He probably avidly follows your writings here and then tosses off your ideas as his own.

    You should know, Duq, that Fred Kaplan has blatantly plagiarized the NK ideas/analysis in this post. You should consult a lawyer. https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2018/05/kim-jong-un-is-calling-the-shots-before-the-trump-north-korea-summit.html

    This is actually the second time Trump has tried this offensive line while touting low Hispanic unemployment. (He leaves out that most of the decline took place under President Barack Obama.) This time, the far whiter crowd heckled an entire ethnic group, and the president of the United States took that in stride. Yet not a single major Sunday show covered it. Perhaps the president’s remarks generated so little coverage because much of it was par for the course — a rambling diatribe of non-sequiturs, half-truths, boasts and outright lies. But if media outlets have a day and a half to spend hand-wringing over a comedian’s roast, surely they can squeeze in some horror at the president’s rhetoric. Pretending his words are now normal will get the country nowhere. https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-partisan/wp/2018/04/30/trump-was-outrageous-in-michigan-so-wheres-the-outrage/?utm_term=.746c8463c4d7 Fake news. With fake quotes and fake recordings. And dubbed in fake crowd noises.

    Wasn't talking about the "media". Was talking about Comey's and Tillerson's rather interesting communications lately. As for "haters" I was talking about any media who labels Comey and likely now Tillerson as "haters" not "the other side". But besides these few things, you completely parsed my words perfectly. Sorry to set you off, however.

    Just another hater like Comey.

    It hasn't been much over 55-60F warm and has been very windy due to the extreme land-sea temp differentials, but the sun has been out most every day all spring so far. Spring is always, always, always weeks and weeks of rain, drizzle, and fog. God may be coming soon. Save us.

    Actually no one said Israel was "totally blockading" food and supplies except you in the above post. I said they were blockading chocolate and tahini as some sort of "security measure". Duq pointed to a further list. Locking up people into a crowded ghetto while controlling fundamental aspects of their lives including medical treatment and food and then putting 100% of the blame for consequences on one side is probably not the path towards peace in the long run.

    On issues like this, wiki tends to be pretty accurate against published sources, actually. Obscure pages are much easier to hack. It is possible all the published sources are wrong, but I see no evidence of that in this case.

    Fox News apparently settled a whack of suits today for a total of 10 million. No nondisclosure clauses were in the agreements. I guess the need to keep that particular cat in the bag is no longer very important.

    The whole point Israel is making in their statements is they are only targeting dangerous people. The whole point of sniping is targeted force. I would say that locking people in to one of the more crowded ghettos on Earth and blockading many nonmilitary goods--chocolate and tahini for heavens sakes have been on the banned list for "security" reasons--and even advanced medical treatments has elements of aggression. It is perhaps not all completely one sided.
