    This is why I don't watch the debates anymore; they've completely degenerated into a snaps contest, not anything substantive.

    That horses and bayonets comment by Obama was as retarded as Romney's path to the sea statement.

  • R C Dean||

    Seriously, having a Mediterranean port is a huge deal to the Iranians. Without it, they've got nuthin' but the Persian Gulf.* And since their only (non-nuclear) strategic card is to close the Persian Gulf, well, you can see where this is going.

    *Sure, the Caspian Sea is nice and all, but the only markets on that one are either dirt-poor 'stans or Russian-owned.

  • Stormy Dragon||

    And how will having a port on the Mediterraen solve that problem? Is the stuff they want to ship just going to magically appear in Syria to be loaded onto boats there?

    I started watching the debate and I had FB up at the same time. When Obama made the 1980s wanting their foreign policy back, leftist friends went nuts.

    I turned the tv off and went to bed.

  • Proprietist||

    Weren't the 1980s full of undeclared interventions only vaguely affiliated with national security and backing shady and dangerous paramilitaries to overthrow regimes we didn't like?

  • Virginian||

    Reagan actually got the hell out of Lebanon after the Marine barracks were bombed. He bombed Libya after they sponsored terrorist attacks, and then stopped. The Afghan supply efforts went to the groups who would later be the Northern Alliance, despite the left trying to paint all those fighting the Russians as the Taliban. The Latin American stuff...well, keeping the Reds out of the Caribbean isn't noninterventionism by a long shot, but it's a hell of a lot more sensible then Korea, Vietnam, Bosnia, Somalia, Iraq, the occupation of Afghanistan, and anything else the last two or three Presidents have come up with.

    My noninterventionism runs up against the Cold War in a very big way. The current raggedy pack of cave dwelling savages lacks the ability to seriously harm the United States. The Soviet Union had the ability, and they embarked on a campaign of worldwide subversion and conquest. Of the Cold War Presidents, Reagan and Eisenhower did the best job with regards to balancing the need to fight Communism with the need to carefully choose the vital fights. Furthermore, Reagan accomplished his foreign policy goals with very little loss of life, compared with LBJ, Nixon, Kennedy, or Truman.

  • C. Anacreon||

    Yet the San Francisco Chronicle is still calling it "Bindergate."

    This may be the most desperate non-joke from a non-gaffe ever made. Seriously. I hoped the forced laughter strokes them all out.

    Notorious right-wing blog Slate reports that the Marines alone have purchased 120,000 bayonets in the past ten years.

    Obama's fact-checkers are as useless as he is.

  • Chris Mallory||

    Stars and Stripes reported that the US Army didn't issue bayonets to troops in Iraq or Afghanistan.

  • R C Dean||

    That's nice. I doubt the Air Force did either. The point still stands about the Marines. I even seem to recall reading a story in the last few years about some Marines putting their bayonets to their intended purpose.

  • Stormy Dragon||

    You're probably thinking of this story:

    http://www.businessinsider.com.....ct-2012-10

    Which you'll note:
    1) it's british troops. The last US bayonet charge in 1951
    2) the story demonstrates why no one does bayonet charges anymore: they only made it half way to their target before having to hit the dirt and switch to fire and maneuver.

    Bayonets are primarily a psychological tool to get the troops all psyched up.

  • OldMexican||

    Re: Chris Mallory,

    Stars and Stripes reported that the US Army didn't issue bayonets to troops in Iraq or Afghanistan.

    Which is why they have to pry open their cans of rations with their teeth!

    Only the Marines get the pretty things! Dang!

  • Stormy Dragon||

    The Marines purchased tons of rolly-office chairs to. That doesn't mean that infantry is going pushing themselves around the battlefield on Aerons.

  • Stormy Dragon||

    Marines do bayonet training in basic to teach aggressiveness, not because it's something they're going to be doing in combat. It's basically the marine version of army recruits hitting each other with those giant padded Q-tips. That doesn't mean the Army expects to start issuing pugil sticks to the infantry at some point.

    Once they leave basic, bayonets are basically only used as utility knifes. In fact if you actually tried to bayonet someone with a modern M-4, you'd likely end up bending your barrel and rendering the rifle useless.

    And you want to know the real way it's obvious that the Marines don't actually expect to use bayonets in actual combat? Once they leave boot camp, they never practice it again. There's no bayonet assault course at the infantry school or special forces school or anything else. It's something they do a few times in boot and then never do again their entire career.

  • sloopyinca||

  • Stormy Dragon||

    Yeah, and you know what doesn't get mentioned throughout that entire article? Marines stabbing people with bayonets. For the reasons explained right at the beginning:

    You fix bayonets when you expect to need the aggressive combat mind-set that's produced by the primal sight of massed blades.

    It's basically a story about a green commander getting jittery before his first real battle ever and pulling out a placebo.

  • R C Dean||

    All of which is irrelevant to the point that we have as many or more bayonets now than we did before we mobilized for WWI.

  • Stormy Dragon||

    M1942 Bayonets produced: 1,505,000

    M9 Bayonets produced: 450,000
    OKC-3S Bayonets produced: 100,000

    Any other bogus statistics you'd like to introduce?

  • Robert S||

    It was a good line but then he ruined it by saying "We have these things called aircraft carriers, we land planes on them". Anyone want to guess what MSNBC would have talked about for the next 7 years if Romney had talked to Obama like he was a child? It was grotesque. He's just lucky the media is in the tank for him.

    Wrong. The oddly deformed papilla bumps are clearly in the area you think is shadow. One of the scratch marks goes right through it.

  • Killazontherun||

    Here is a much more appealing pics of her tits because the nips are hard:

    http://tubedork.com/wp-content.....z-nude.jpg

    But if you do a close up that right nip you see the papilla on the bottom where you find the scratch marks cover the same dark skin area as the pic at the top. Also, the dark skin of the areola is the same flattened curved shape.

    Anna Wintour threatens designers, designers rationalize.

    "It is just that Michelle brings such a unique, vibrant and youthful style and the average woman can see herself wearing many of her outfits, so designers want everyone to know that she is wearing their clothes," explained entertainment/lifestyle commentator Valerie Greenberg. "And even though Anna Wintour has a reputation for being tough, I don't think she would let her political views dictate the designers she chooses to feature in the pages of Vogue."

    Emmy-winning stylist and author David Zyla, who has previously outfitted political figures including Hillary Clinton, said that is simply hard for anyone to measure up to Michelle Obama, who roused the industry after the eight years of the simple style preferred by former First Lady Laura Bush.

  • Auric Demonocles||

  • R C Dean||

    That's quite a conundrum Gov Brown.

    Faced with a $16 billion deficit, Brown is pushing a ballot measure next month known as Prop 30 that would increase taxes by up to 30 percent on those earning more than $300,000. Brown claims that unless voters pass the measure, dubbed the "millionaires tax," he'll cut the school year by three weeks to save money.

    "It's either massive cuts to the schools and colleges or the most blessed, the most well-off paying 1 or 2 or 3 percent more," Brown told a group of supporters in Oakland.

  • ||

    Yes, three weeks less of proggie leftist nonsense is surely a bad thing. How exactly is he making a compelling case, again?

  • ||

    That and there's the fact that he specifically put the cuts into the budget to ensure that his tax prop passes because God forbid he reduce spending on government workers or reforms the bureaucracy entirely so that 50% of education money doesn't disappear into a black hole.

  • C. Anacreon||

    This. There is an enormous amount of redundancy and useless pencil-pushers in the CA state government (the list of "agencies" is mind-boggling) and only about 1/3 of school money in the state goes to pay teachers (most schools have a half-dozen "vice principals," for instance, whatever the hell they are needed for.) But unless we add huge new taxes, the only way to cut costs, per Brown, is less school for junior.

    They even have Brown in commercials for the tax with a bunch of wildly cheering 7-year-olds. Sadly, not the only constituency gullible enough to buy the tax plan.

  • OldMexican||

    Re: C. Anacreon,

  • R C Dean||

    I like the way he characterizes "increase taxes by up to 30 percent on those earning more than $300,000" as "paying 1 or 2 or 3 percent more".

  • Red Rocks Rockin||

    The same math that says $300K = $1 million.

  • BigT||

    If they're paying 10%, a 30% increase is 3%.

  • R C Dean||

    But they are paying 30% more, not, as Brown said, 3% more.

    I never had a problem with the MoCo sheriffs. I see the place of the incident -- Tailgators? Really? Fuck. -- has a location at the front of Needham Rd and one in Magnolia. Both of which were vast wastelands when I left. The Weedlands has just exploded in the last 10 years.

    President Barack Obama’s war on whistleblowers bears fruit...

    In a certain way, Obama is being quite transparent.

    Is that any worse than you hanging onto the failed policies of a failed administration? Or are you OK with Obama's War on Drugs, War on Mexican Immigrants, expanded War on Middle Easterners, War on Coal/NatGas/Oil, etc, etc, etc...

  • Palin's Buttplug||

    Obama War on Drugs? His biggest failure, no doubt.

    His War on criminal immigrants? Fine with that.

    War on Al qaeda? I like that too.

    War on NatGAs,Coal/Oil? LMAO - you idiot. The US is now #1 in energy production.

  • Randian||

    When were we not #1?

  • sloopyinca||

    #1 in energy production? Then explain how the price of gas has more than doubled during his presidency. After all, it's among the most highly regulated industries out there.

    Re: Palin's Buttwipe,

    Obama War on Drugs? His biggest failure, no doubt.

    You don't even give him that one, Buttwipe - it's so easy to fail a war on consumption and so disastrous the results of the war, that failure should be its own reward. But not even The Great One can get this one - he failed in failing!

    His War on criminal immigrants? Fine with that.

    Especially those "criminals" that have families and lives here... makes for great examples, not unlike hanging, drawing and quartering.

    War on NatGAs,Coal/Oil? LMAO - you idiot. The US is now #1 in energy production.

    Only because Congress has blocked him! Why, those uncooperating bastards!

    So any bets on what Trumps big October Surprise is? The betting favorite seems to be proof Obama dealt drugs in college. Drug use would be a yawn. But watching the media, who have spent 40+ years pushing the drug war, claim youthful drug dealing is no big deal will be quite entertaining.

  • Randian||

    Please be a white love child.

  • John||

    That would be good too. The other possibility is the gay lover. But I don't think Trump is that stupid. A gay lover would just make Obama look sympathetic to anyone with any decency or morality. So we are left with drug dealing.

    I frankly don't care if he sold drugs in college. But the media has always claimed that while drug use is just a youthful indiscretion, drug dealers are evil. Watching them explain that a way will be epic.

  • rac3rx||

    Nah, they'll ignore it, just like they've ignored everything else negative about him.

  • Emmerson Biggins||

    I fucking hate Obama as much as the next guy. But doesn't anything Trump says deserve to be pre-ignored?

  • Palin's Buttplug||

    Obama fucked Ivana Trump is the ass and The Hair is pissed.

    I bet he cheated on his taxes.

  • R C Dean||

    The betting favorite seems to be proof Obama dealt drugs in college.

    He's denying that's what it is.

    Gay lover? That would crush his vote amongst blacks.

    There was speculation awhile back that one of Obama filed tax returns as a resident alien. That would be priceless.

    Gay lover? That would crush his vote amongst blacks.

    Too late. The early voting initiative was/is specifically targeting this arguably monolithic demographic.

    I think there were 3 different alleged gay lovers and all have mysteriously died. I don't think there's another one left to come forward.

    What's a pederast, Walter?

    A person who loves children so much he wants to keep them from working in factories so they have to offer themselves to him as prostitutes.

    Perhaps sensing that there's really little difference between President Barack Obama's and Mitt Romney's foreign policy plans, four million voters didn't wait for last night's debate before casting their ballots.

    Some of them voters being at lesat 150 years old.

    darnit, another day of sick leave. another day i can't be out there TERRY STOPPING the world :l

    pubsec unions are, like many other things, a tradeoff. in many respects they are a "good" and in many other respects, not so much.

    in any job where as a fundamental aspect of employment, employees are expected to do such unpopular things as restraining people's liberty (arrest), use physical force against them, etc. those employees need advocates to fight for their rights and simple due process against a system that often would throw them under the bus for political expediency. that's what our unions are there for.

    i've never been sued (knock on wood), or had any serious complaint (knock on wood), but that's largely due to luck, and very good verbal judo skills (imo complaints derive in large part from inability to verbally defuse situations as well as inability in hsotile situations to verbally express the kind of respect and politeness that people want. iow, two officers who use the exact same level of force, in many cases, the one who gets the complaints is the one who fails to verbally defuse. it's not the force, it's the words. as strange as that sounds, i've seen it time and again).

  • ||

    regardless, if you want good officers, and overwhelmingly in the US, we have good officers, you gotta give them decent pay, benefits and most importantly, due process and civil service protections. that makes the tradeoff in liberty, privacy, etc. that we give up in takin gthe job - a fair tradeoff.

    i LOVE my job, but i wouldn't be doing it if i couldn't have union protection DESPITE THE FACT i personally haven't had much if any need.

    it's kind of like how i wouldn't own/buy a house w/o fire insurance. police unions, otoh, have negotiated some contracts/benefits schemes that are simply unsustainable financially, and people need to step up to the plate and address it.

    Remember Jacob Sullum's story a little earlier today about the charges being dropped on the guy the NYPD cops beat the shit out of in the Jewish center? Well, PoliceOne weighed in on it with predictable results.

    Example: This is frickin rediculous!! Get arrested, make a stink about it, and enjoy as the flippin liberal retards throw the pity card and drop all charges. It's getting to the point where shooting criminals should be mandatory. It may be the only way they'll ever see any justice.

    These motherfuckers are beyond inane.
