I am old, fat and arthritic, and I laugh about it. I am a Christian. Patty and I have been married 46 years, and boy did I luck out there. We have 3 children and 10 grandchildren. I served in the Corps (there is no Corps but the United States Marine Corps and Chesty Puller was its prophet). I worked as a computer programmer and database administrator.

I read a lot of history. I like to kayak. I like to draw.

Howdy @Weltansicht, I shall die and it looms closer all the time. I don't think it will be from the COVID vaccine, however. The very idea that our leaders, however inept they are, would deliberately intend to kill 108 million of their citizens is preposterous on its face. They want to control the wealth of a great nation, not the shattered pieces of a devastated one. If they are this monstrously evil, however, then I shall go rejoicing that my Lord is taking me home.

Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System (VAERS) was established 30 years ago. It is voluntary. It does not establish cause, only things that happened after the vaccination. It does not currently show thirty-thousand deaths following vaccination. It does show a jump in adverse reactions following vaccination. This is logical because over a hundred-million people have been vaccinated this year. VAERS reports about 2,509 people died following COVID vaccinations.

They jumped into many fires and performed very well. The unit went on to jump in the Korean and Vietnam wars. Ultimately, the Triple Nickles served in more airborne units, in peace and in war, than any other parachute group in history.

"all the coasts thereof" The teacher makes the claim that all tribes of Israel had coastal territory. Zebulon, Issachar, Ephraim, and Simeon had no coastal territory. Reuben & Benjamin bordered the Dead Sea only. Gad, and Naphtali bordered the Sea of Galilee only. East Manasseh bordered the Sea of Galilee only. In the NASB, Matthew 2:16 is translated: "Then when Herod saw that he had been tricked by the magi, he became very enraged, and sent and slew all the male children who were in Bethlehem **and in all its environs** Young's Literal version translates Matthew 2:16 as: 16¶Then Herod, having seen that he was deceived by the mages, was very wroth, and having sent forth, he slew all the male children in Beth-Lehem, **and in all its borders** New King James version translates Matthew 2:16 as: 16¶Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem **and in all its districts** So I think the teacher's conclusion is partly an artifact of King James English and how far today's English has drifted from it.

Howdy @HistoryCorner, We have whitewashed the classical world. Oh, we make little ditties about Aphrodite and her see through nightie (as though we were still in Junior High) but the reality was far grittier than the lovely white statues in our museums. In Latin American countries men still hire bands to go to their ladies' homes to serenade them and declare their love. An interesting inheritance from the classical world. In that classical world, however, men's drinking clubs went to boy's homes to serenade them because homosexual love was considered far better than heterosexual. Their erotic ideal was a pubescent boy. BTW, this was one of the reasons for the decline of Sparta. Boys lived in barracks from 7-8 to 30 years old and were encouraged to form love relationships with older male mentors. Meanwhile, back on the heterosexual front, temples to Venus/Aphrodite/Astarte were brothels. Too many daughters? Drop them off at the "temple" where they could by raised as "priestesses." Opaque euphemisms for making them child prostitutes. Because, after all, sex in her temple was worship to Aphrodite. And it generated a lot of cash. Just one of the reasons the Judeo-Christian approach to sex was revolutionary in the classical world.

Howdy @1patriot, I guess it's part of the general degradation of our society. The Sierra Club had a hallowed position in the California climbing community. John Muir would often take the train up through the Sacramento River Canyon to the base of Mt. Shasta and climb it. The Sierra Club had a network of cabins through the Sierra's and Cascades. They were pivotal in Teddy Roosevelt's founding the National Park system. But they stopped being conservationists and became a massive fund raising and lobbying front for Leftists. My niece contributed faithfully until she was driven to tears by their constant badgering for more and more money. That was in the eighties and they've only gotten worse. It's sad.

timon_phocas comments on May 3, 2021:
I think there are many problems with America's post WWII interventions. First, its success in WWII and the aftermath was deceptive. America's WWII enemies were financially and morally exhausted, America's terms were generous.The alternative to America was a Stalinist empire. In this environment America was successful. Where America's opponents could harness the national dreams of their own peoples, however, America had a lot more problems. Overwhelming firepower could not overcome a people whose young men tattooed themselves with, "Born in the North to Die in the South" before they went to war. Mary Chestnut, famous Southern diarist of the Civil War, wrote that the north would not be easily defeated. When all those merchants and manufacturers started making fortunes from war, they would never quit. That was a one-dimensional analysis. But a century later Eisenhower called it the military-industrial complex. And interestingly enough, America kept fighting in Afghanistan twice as long as the Soviets did. Public opinion has a shelf life. America's burning thirst for revenge on the 12th of September in 2001 was burned out by 2008. The insurgency in Iraq was defeated, but the generational task of replacing Saddam's tyranny with something more stable was beyond our patience. Finally, America has fundamental misunderstandings about foreign cultures. We think that because we understand France or Germany (we don't, really) we also understand Iraq or Libya or Iran. The big lesson from Iraq is that Saddam was a revolting SOB, but he kept the cockroaches down to a minimum. We didn't learn and we repeated the same mistake with Libya and Qaddafi.

Caspian Report: The making of an Asian NATO []
timon_phocas comments on Apr 30, 2021:
Arthur Schesenger, famous historian of the sixties and seventies proposed a theory of Countervailing Power. He proposed that any power threatening enough would generate a countervailing alliance to oppose it. He applied this theory to analyse coal companies and unions. I think it's a useful theory in geopolitics. The season of US unipolar dominance generated the China-Russia alliance. The dominance of China in the western Pacific generated the Quad. NATO worked very well. The ABDA (WWII America, British, Dutch, Australia) failed miserably. It remains to be seen whether the Quad works well or not.

Caspian Report: Ukraine and Russia preparing for a new war []
timon_phocas comments on Apr 23, 2021:
Interesting discussion from the Russian viewpoint. I think the Russians' main reason for wanting Ukraine is demographic. Russia has about 150M people. That's not enough to be a superpower. Ukraine has 50M people. Add those to Russia and you have 200M. Enough to compete as a superpower. This would also secure Russia's western frontiers while it tries to deal with Chinese immigration into Siberia. Siberia is roughly 1.6 times larger than the entire US, with only one tenth the population. It is resource rich and people poor. Chinese are flowing into Siberian like Hispanics are flowing across our southern border.

'Consensual incest' should be decriminalized, advocates say
timon_phocas comments on Apr 18, 2021:
Howdy @sqeptiq, God didn't forbid incest because he is the Great Cosmic Killjoy In the Sky. There are health and emotional reasons and they show how the Biblical model has surprising benefits. You can't inbreed puppies without terrible consequences, much less humans. Egyptian New Kingdom dynasties, the Hapsburg dynasty, even notorious Appalachian families show that. This is an assertion based on 67 years of life, but I believe humans thrive best when we live in networks of relationships; of loves, if you will. Some are familial love, some are friendships and one should be an exclusive love in which sex is a binding element. But all these loves have to harmonize into your larger network of relationships. In other words, the Biblical model. Reducing human love to desire, or emotional need and then making that most important element of life is dangerous and unstable.

I think that's a false dichotomy. God created an ordered universe. We can see His handiwork down to the smallest detail of biology or physics. The Bible says God created the universe out of nothing and that the first thing He created was light. The Big Bang theory says the universe came into being in an instant, that light, the fabric of space-time, the rules of physics, and matter sprang into being in that instant. Interestingly enough, Einstein and Chandrasekhar concluded that light was the first thing to spring into existence. They were, in Johannes Kepler's words, thinking God's thoughts after him. Certain scientists and their publicists try to appropriate the prestige of 'capital S' Science for their own selfish ends. Therein lies the issue.

Howdy @1patriot, Amen brother
Spring Equinox today.
timon_phocas comments on Mar 20, 2021:
Howdy @Naomi, When the wind howls and the ice growls Like an enemy in the night, When the cold gnaws like wolves' teeth Waiting cold to bite Oh how we wish for Spring's soft kiss And the touch of bonny May But outside still where frost is king The icy winds do play.. BTW, the forecast for Colorado is for another blizzard.

Howdy @1patriot, The Romanian revolution quickly became an armed forces revolt against the securitati secret police. It was vicious and bloody. There were riots. Then the army joined the rioters.

Ack! 'sexual operations'! If only. And wouldn't that be a great recruiting tool. Predictive completion will be the death of me.

Howdy @eschatologyguy, Putin was the latchkey kid of two career KGB parents. He was taken in by a Jewish family for years and grew up with them. Because of this he is free from the endemic anti-semitism of Russian culture. I don't know what will happen when Putin dies.

Howdy @WorldSigh, There are few times I've ever been ashamed of my Marine Corps. This is one. The Corps kept its silence on political issues for 245 years. It was silent when it was ill used and dismissed. We always let battlefield results do our talking for us. That's principle, not policy. Now flag officers and Information Offices feel they can abandon that hallowed principle. It's not only deeply wrong, but it's ridiculous. Tucker Carlson said the Corps was lowering its combat readiness standards. And the official USMC response is, effectively, "Tucker's been mean to me." Yep, ridiculous.
How Do Big Media Outlets So Often "Independently Confirm" Each Other's Falsehoods?
timon_phocas comments on Mar 17, 2021:
There is an open pattern of common material. It's been that way for decades. Back in the early 90s there was a list server called jouro-list that shared news and common approaches. Its phrasing showed up in news programs all across the liberal media. Something like that jouro-list is still operating today. It's even more closely coordinated today. There are sequential series of stories. An accusation is made, then more stories expanding on it, politicians demand official investigations, then other stories corroborating the accusations, then stories with new accusations.
Should there be legal restrictions on trans athletes competing in schools?
timon_phocas comments on Mar 17, 2021:
Howdy @Naomi, There's an old saying that hard cases make bad law. I do not deny the personal heartbreak of parents with gender dysphoric children. I do not deny the heartbreak of dysphoric children wanting desperately to fit in and never able to do so. Yet we've spent generations building women's sports programs from secondary schools through universities and Olympics. It would destroy the whole system if transgender women (with the muscular and skeletal advantages biological males have) come to dominate it. The world record in female weight lifting is held by a transgender woman with male muscle mass. So is the female long distance bicycling record. We complained bitterly back in the 70s and 80s when East German women athletes dominated sports by using steroids and other performance enhancing drugs. That's exactly what's happening, however, in some high school sports programs as gender dysphoric girls take steroids to transition to males and yet compete in female sports. So the question becomes how do we accept the transgendered women without stripping biological women of their hard earned rights. .
Should we care that the military is now a woke social engineering institution? []
timon_phocas comments on Mar 16, 2021:
We are advising our grandchildren to avoid the military. My ancestors have served in the US military since the 1870s (at least). A military NOT focussed on being the most lethal force on the battlefield is destined to fail.

Howdy @Naomi, Aside from the fact it reminds me of the "manure" emoji, it's just great.
