I am old, fat and arthritic, and I laugh about it. I am a Christian. Patty and I have been married 45 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.

Sad sort of progress, if progress it is.

Our Food & Drug Administration exponentially slows medicine development, which is why only giant pharmaceutical corporations can afford to develop them. Trump indemnified them, put in a shortened test regime and subsidized mass production as the testing proceeded.

Now that Trump's out of the way, they're getting revenge on someone who has been particularly vindictive to them. The media mob needs scandals as clickbait for their new profit model. This certainly is a scandal.
Science or God. The choice is yours.
timon_phocas comments on Mar 24, 2021:
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.

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. .

The article says it "benefits heavily weighted towards lower - and middle income Americans --" but never says what those benefits are (except for a $1,400 check). A little advertised part of the bill is a $350 per month direct payment for each child under 6 and $250 for children between 6 and 17. There's talk of making this payment permanent. This might spark a massive increase in private schooling (and won't that make the teacher's unions joyful). Blue states and cities gutted their tax bases and ran up massive deficits. The stimulus bill pours rivers of money into them. These rivers of cash dwarf everything else in the bill.

Solar City depends on regulations forcing utilities to buy electricity from rooftop solar panels and tax subsidies for installation. The Boring Company only builds tunnels for governments. Tesla depends on $7,000 tax subsidies for each car sold. SpaceX depends on NASA grants and government launch service purchases. Commercial launch services are heating up, however, a lot of those launches are for foreign governments. Even Starlink could never be approved without massive federal government support. Who else could approve a constellation of tens of thousands of satellites?
Did I hear right that in the US, the COVID vaccine rollout has been allowed without thorough testing...
timon_phocas comments on Mar 10, 2021:
Howdy @Naomi, The Food and Drug Administration regulates formulations of prescription drugs. The rules they force pharmaceutical companies to undertake are, rigorous, exhaustive and time consuming. They include testing for purpose, dosage, side effects, patient tolerances. They do save lives, but a lot of them are for CYA, to prevent embarrassing the FDA. The FDA test regime was designed in the early to mid 20th century. Half a century later, they're out of date. So yes, the normal test regime was waived for the COVID emergency. The knowledge base we had for developing Salk's polio vaccine was primitive by today's standards. That inherently improves safety. According to what I read, each vaccine was tested on approximately ten thousand people before being approved.

Howdy @eschatologyguy, Putin has an interesting back story. He was a latchkey child. His parents worked full time in the KGB. So he spent his afternoons, and sometimes nights, with a Jewish family down the hall from his parent's apartment. As a result, he is free of that broad streak of anti-semitism that runs through Russia. Under Putin, Israel and Russia have a tacit alliance in Syria. Syria is a Russian ally. Israel doesn't attack Russian assets. When Israel attacks Syrian assets that Iran has appropriated, then it warns Russia that it's coming so they can evacuate their personnel. When Israel attacks purely Iranian assets in Syria then they warn the Russians where they will be coming to protect any Russian assets in the area. Russia does not pass this warning on to Iranian forces. It's a strange War going on in Syria.

A few things about the Marshall Plan. Europe was utterly prostrate after WWII. They had a chicken and egg program. They wanted to grow economically, but they lacked the means. No factories to build products, no rail nets to move raw materials or products, no harbors to ship the products. They had populations that wanted to work, but there was nothing to work at. The only place to buy the capital goods was the US, but they didn't have the money to buy them. The US had a parallel problem. We were making the capital goods but nobody had the money to buy them. The Marshall Plan provided the money and it solved both the US and European problems. Winston Churchill called it "the most unsordid act in history," but there was a whole lot of self interest in the generosity.

Prosecutors Offer Plea Deal to NYC Lawyers Who Firebombed Police Vehicle The leftwing attorneys are accused of distributing Molotov cocktails to fellow protesters Federal prosecutors have offered a plea deal to two New York City lawyers accused of fire-bombing a police car and distributing Molotov cocktails to rioters during protests that followed the death of George Floyd last summer. The defendants, Colinford Mattis and Urooj Rahman, were offered plea bargains on Feb. 11, according to a letter prosecutors submitted to a federal trial court on Saturday. Prosecutors and defense lawyers were set to participate in a status hearing on Tuesday morning, which was rescheduled in light of the new developments. The parties are engaged in plea negotiations which they believe are likely to result in a disposition of this case without trial," the letter reads. The details of the offer are not public and may change as attorneys negotiate. The letter is signed by Mark Lesko, the number two federal prosecutor for the district covering Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and Long Island. Mattis is a Princeton-educated corporate lawyer and Rahman attained pretrial release with the help of a former Obama administration official. She's also retained a top defense lawyer to represent her in court. Friendly reports from NPR and BuzzFeed News cast the pair as "idealistic attorneys hoping to change the world," who were "living the American dream their immigrant parents had aspired for them." Whether the prospective deal includes guilty pleas to felony charges will have significant professional consequences for Mattis and Rahman. Lawyers in New York state are automatically disbarred if they are convicted of a felony. Mattis was an associate at Pryor Cashman, a midsize corporate law firm. Rahman was a public interest lawyer practicing with Bronx Legal Services. Biden-appointed U.S. attorney will continue prosecuting the case against Mattis and Rahman. Some legal observers have questioned whether the case is appropriate for federal court, since it involves purely local conduct. The acting U.S. attorney supervising their case, Seth DuCharme, advised senior officials in the Trump Justice Department before former attorney general William Barr picked him to serve as acting U.S. attorney last summer. A spokesperson declined to comment as to when DuCharme will step down, though it doesn't appear he will be among those U.S. attorneys who will resign at the end of this month at President Joe Biden's request. Surveillance video captured Rahman lighting a Molotov cocktail and tossing it into an empty police vehicle in May 2020. She then retreated to a minivan, which Mattis drove, and fled the scene.

" It's called "dogging," and it's essentially having sex in a car parked in a public place with other people watching or even joining in." 26 thousand people say they're going to participate in a 'dogging event'? It reminds me of something Winston Churchill said. A seventy plus year old man was arrested for soliciting sex with a sixteen-year-old girl in a public park. "To have such ambition at such an advanced age. It makes you proud to be British!"

There was a whole category of comedy about foolish campus fads back in the sixties. Claiming records for stuffing people in telephone booths (remember telephone booths?) or swallowing live goldfish... We dismissed Political Correctness and then speech codes the same way. Then it fugued into antifa riots whenever they disagreed with a speaker. We got concerned, but by then it took over social media and now society as a whole. The 1st Amendment means nothing if tiny coteries can define any speech they don't like as violence and then ban it.
President Biden asked Americans to join him in a moment of silence tonight for people who have died...

One good thing is a 'moment of silence' will be one thing he won't need a teleprompter for.

I can't imagine a Commandant saying that last sentence to a sitting Speaker of the House.

Ancient Egyptians were capturing Blacks as slaves thousands of years before Muslims appeared. Muhammed, the prophet of Islam, had at least twenty slaves, many of them Africans.
Madonna whines again.

Omar Kayyam -- The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ, Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line, Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word Madonna had her time, the Moving Finger moved on. She's sixty-two years old; old enough to collect Social Security for goodness sake. Ella Fitzgerald, Barbra Streisand or Aretha Franklin could draw crowds in their sixties. But they promoted themselves as singers, not sex objects. Madonna made her choice to be the latter and now she's paying for her choice.
Jackie Robinson was a great baseball player, with a career batting average of .
timon_phocas comments on Feb 22, 2021:
Petty politicians, modern day ward heelers like Harris and Clinton, try to appropriate the mantles of great men like Jackie Robinson. He endured torrents of abuse (on the field and off), performed at the pinnacle of athletic excellence and did it all with grace. They somehow expect their pedestrian efforts to be received with the same kind of acclaim Jackie Robinson got for his larger than life achievements. They're pathetic posers. Jackie Robinson is a hero.
Congress Escalates Pressure on Tech Giants to Censor More, Threatening the First Amendment ...
timon_phocas comments on Feb 20, 2021:
Howdy @Garsco, It looks like they don't understand the secondary effects of their censorship. To paraphrase Princess Leia, "The more you tighten your grip, Zuckerberg, the more alt tech systems will slip through your fingers."

19But Peter and John answered and said to them, "Whether it is right in the sight of God to give heed to you rather than to God, you be the judge 20for we cannot stop speaking about what we have seen and heard" Acts 4 "not abandoning our own meeting together, as is the habit of some people, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near" Hebrews 20:25 This is an imperative command from an Apostle appointed by the Lord Jesus Christ. The pastor has the obligation to follow the Bible in the administration of Christ's Church. Interfering with our obligation to worship together is a violation of the 1st Amendment guarantees in the US. In Canada these abuses are violations of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which Canada signed in 1948.

Rush was the sparkplug of the Conservatives for over thirty years. Fifty million people tuned in every day. He revealed to us that we weren't just scattered individuals; a tiny remnant from the past. We discovered we were part of a broad consensus across the country. The mainstream media will never forgive him for that. We will never forget him for the same reason.

I don't know about less resistance to lockdowns in America. There's a Colorado Dept of Health and Environment sign on the the front door of my workplace. It says everyone has to wear a face condom. No one pays attention to it. People are ignoring regulations they consider stupid intrusions into their lives and just going about their business. I have a friend with a musical instrument shop. Cali has stupid regulations about face condoms. But how are you going to try a clarinet with a mask on? This stupid intrusion is ignored. It's just another example, but a telling one. If a business owner wants me to put on a mask, ok. It's their choice, their business, their property. It's a matter of manners. If a government demands face condoms, I'll escape and evade.
Does teaching "white guilt" also cultivate a "white pride" backlash?
timon_phocas comments on Feb 17, 2021:
How about teaching them honest history? There are measures of selfless and selfish in every culture. For every hardy settler forging a better future for his family there was a tribal family losing their heritage. Was the settler the only one who was noble? Obviously not. Does this mean the settler and his dreams were intrinsically evil? Just as obviously not.

timon_phocas comments on Feb 17, 2021:
Rush described his fight with cancer in a baseball analogy as "rounding second and heading for third base." He described his faith as very precious and personal. To carry his analogy a bit further, I think he made home. Fair winds and following seas, Rush
David Wood: thoughts on the moral failures of Ravi Zacharias.
timon_phocas comments on Feb 16, 2021:
I have come to believe that humans are not wired to kill other humans without consequence. I mean to say deep damage to the soul. I have also come to believe we are not wired to be worshipped without consequences. I think it is just as dangerous but more insidious.
timon_phocas comments on Feb 15, 2021:
Does the Supreme Court even hear original cases? All the lower courts dismissed the cases on the basis of procedural standing. They've never even heard the evidence. And now it's supposed to be heard in the Supreme Court? Won't they instead be remanded to lower courts for the trials and then ping pong back a forth through the appeals process?
