Was it -13 degress in Hell also? Reports of ice?

William R. Cumming

Less than 72 hours IMO!

What info is available OPEN SOURCE about development, deployment, and usage of the HARPOON?

And BTW IMO Washington,D.C. is under 30 minute or less attack threat by SLB or other missiles.

I would relocate the Pentagon and its minions to FT. RILEY!

William R. Cumming

Any thoughts on the recent Kaplan book on the near and recent future of the GREAT GAME for the South China Sea?

William R. Cumming

QURAN?

William R. Cumming

My understanding is that there is NO PUBLISHED GUIDANCE within DoD or its components or the Armed Forces concerning the procedures or process for disobeying an order believed UNLAWFUL!

N.B. I commented today in detail on the Clinton e-mail problem and concluded the story has legs and will end her political career.

I'm sorry for not donating towards the cost of your labors but I sent my money to Jim Webb instead. Please keep up your excellent work!

PL, shortly after the Michael Brown incident in Ferguson there were heated discussions on these pages, and many expressed skepticism that the Federal Government would conduct an impartial investigation of the matter. Well, they've finished their investigation and the report is out. It finds there is not enough evidence to successfully prosecute Officer Wilson, but it does find there's systemic bias in the Ferguson police department and city offices. Perhaps people who were so vocal at the time will take a minute to reflect on their comments.

Here's an opinion on the reports worth reading: http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2015/03/The-Gangsters-Of-Ferguson/386893/

Swami,

The registered voters of Ferguson elected the city officials who oversee the police department the son of the black panther leader and Philadelphia/NYC elitist is so troubled with.
Maybe the democrats in Missouri can do something about all those crimes Mr. Coates says occurred.(Of course Eric Holder found no legal rational to arrest any police officer in Ferguson for any federal crime.) I would expect extra effort from the state representative whose district includes Ferguson as well as from the Governor of Missouri since they are both members of the Democratic Party.

I did however enjoy the reference to Galactus, the fictional character from a comic book. Maybe if we had a system of justice in the black panther/comic book style rather than the one we actually do have we could do away with all the troubling effort associated with having elections. Or perhaps Mr. Coates and company could get off their collective asses and go door to door in Ferguson to register all those eligible to vote so they can get the representation in government they desire.

SAC,

I would trade my HK service pistolfor a 1911 in a heartbeat. Not a fan at all.

Reloading is one of those hobbies that might have to wait until the wife isnt looking, haha.

Tyler

Swami,

Show me a city where blacks AREN'T overrepresented in crime stats.

Another DoJ anti YT witch hunt. Go figure.

Swami Bhut Jolokia

Tyler, glad to see you are as open-minded as ever. Here's a thought for you: perhaps blacks are over-represented in crime stats because they are charged with crimes for acts that wouldn't result in even a raised eyebrow if a white person committed them?

Have a good weekend with your goat.

Swami Bhut Jolokia

Fred, I notice you have no substantive (or any) response to the findings of the Justice Department, but rather choose to personally attack the Attorney General.

I think that's a tacit admission you cannot get past your biases. Cheers.

I didn't think to look up the temperature in Hell. But if there ice in Ann Arbor, it stands to reason there would be ice in Hell. (If we are thinking of the same Hell).

Tyler

Swami,

Magic racism feels that only liberals can see. That's your argument?

You claim that people wouldn't raise an eyebrow at the types of violent crimes that blacks tend to commit? Nuckah, plz. This isn't just American blacks, this is just about ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD where blacks congregate en masse.

Occam's Razor says maybe blacks just tend to be more inherently violent. Here's a fun question: You can be dropped into downtown Salt Lake City at midnight or downtown Praetoria at midnight. Which do you pick?

Fred

Swami,

In protest to your comment I have to say: "Hand up, don't shoot".- in this case the messenger - me. I responded to what you linked to - the article in the Atlantic - in which Mr. Coates does the same thing he's made a living at for years - cherry pick some points to make his. Or should I call that race baiting to be a bit more provocative? BTW you didn't bother posting to the actual AG report but then we all know why you chose the Atlantic.
Personally attack the AG? This is my comment about Mr. Holder:

"Of course Eric Holder found no legal rational to arrest any police officer in Ferguson for any federal crime."

He has charged no one in Ferguson with a Federal crime. The justice department made a finding of a pattern of behavior? That's not charging anyone with a crime. But then my cherry picking is not as eloquent as Mr. Coates'.

Here's the other point:
"Maybe the democrats in Missouri can do something about all those crimes Mr. Coates says occurred."

Other than the small group of lawyers making up Arch City Defenders the efforts of liberals in Ferguson to change the pattern of policing in all the years prior to Mr. Brown being killed were just about zero. Feel free to point out what the Democratic Governor was doing to fix things in Ferguson for all those years. Whatever they were they didn't work.

What do you think is going to happen if the Justice Department forces the disbandment to the city police department? Peace and harmony break out? I hope it does but doubt it mill. Zero law enforcement? Not likely. Either the state or the county is going to deploy police officers to enforce the laws in effect. They are also going to send the bill to the city tax payers. I'm certain a state trooper or deputy sheriff makes more than one of those city police officers. Even if there are less of them on the street the policing costs are going to be pretty close to what it costs now,especially considering all the legal bills that are getting racked up. The tax payers are sure going to love paying for all that.

Fred

Swami,

If you are actually intereseted in the DOJ findings here's the appropriate links:

http://www.justice.gov/sites/default/files/opa/press-releases/attachments/2015/03/04/ferguson_police_department_report_1.pdf

"...we found many Ferguson police officers and other City employees to be dedicated public servants striving each day to perform their duties lawfully and with respect for all members of the Ferguson community. The importance of their often-selfless work cannot be overstated."

Tyler

Fred,

Damn. You got some chops on you. Nice response.

Tidewater,

What I have read some of the climate scientists saying is that as the Arctic/SubArctic de-ices and warms up preferrentially to the nonArctic, that the northern hemisphere jet streams aren't blowing as strongly or tracing as evenly round an outline around the north. They are beginning to weaken and wander north here and south there, and the air masses behind them go as north or south as the wandering jet streams permit. I would suspect, therefor, that the jet stream must be going way north in Siberia/Alaska just now.

Is there supposed to be enough methane releasing around the Arctic to already begin trapping heat all on its own?

Fred

Tyler,

Let me do that for you:

APPARENTLY NO ONE IS ASKING OR ANSWERING THE QUESTION WAS HILLARY CLINTON'S PRIVATE E-MAIL HACKED OR UNDER SURVEILLANCE BY HOSTILE NATION-STATES OR NON-STATE ACTORS.

WHY?

William R. Cumming

DIRECTOR JOHN BRENNAN IN WHAT MAY BE A LAST GASP EFFORT TO SAVE THE CIA HAS ANNOUNCED A MAJOR REORGANIZATION. ALSO ANNOUNCED NO NEED FOR CONGRESSIONAL APPROVAL. DID THE PRESIDENT APPROVE IT?

THE PURPOSE OF THE CIA REORGANIZATION IS TO HAVE THE CIA'S PRINCIPAL FOCUS BE CYBER-SECURITY. NO ANSWER AS TO OFFENSIVE OR DEFENSIVE CAPABILITY OR BOTH.
