Overnight Open Thread

OK Democrats, enough of this BS (White House Claims ObamaCare Fine A 'Penalty', Despite Court Calling It A Tax). Is Obamacare a tax or not? Answer the friggin' question. Own it.

Oh and Jay Carney, you might want to finally read the law.

Carney went on to say Friday that the "penalty" will affect only about 1 percent of Americans, those who refuse to get health insurance.

Um Jay, it will affect more people than you think. Seven New Taxes On Citizens Earning Less Than $250K.

Military Tri-Care

I find this interesting in light of Obama's Overtures To Get The Military/Veteran Vote. Um, threatening to Veto the Defense Bill Unless Congress Hikes TriCare Fees is not gonna win you support. Especially when Your Administration is Tripping Over Themselves Handing Out Obamacare/Tax Waivers to those mostly friendly or supportive of the Administration. And oh by the way Mr. Transparent Administration, just where is the latest list of waivers located at? Why the secrecy?

Roughly 1,200 companies received waivers from part of the healthcare reform law, the Health and Human Services Department said Friday.

Friday marks the last time HHS will have to update the total number of waivers, putting to rest a recurring political firestorm. The department had been updating its waiver totals every month, prompting monthly attacks from the GOP.


That was back in January. What's the latest?

Hottest Conservative Men

So what do you think of this list 'ettes? The 20 Hottest Conservative Men In New Media 2012.

Gang Math

Interesting. Mapping Gang Turf Using A Mathematical Model.

A mathematical model that has been used for more than 80 years to determine the hunting range of animals in the wild holds promise for mapping the territories of street gangs, a UCLA-led team of social scientists reports in a new study.

"The way gangs break up their neighborhoods into unique territories is a lot like the way lions or honey bees break up space," said lead author P. Jeffrey Brantingham, a professor of anthropology at UCLA.

Further, the research demonstrates that the most dangerous place to be in a neighborhood packed with gangs is not deep within the territory of a specific gang, as one might suppose, but on the border between two rival gangs. In fact, the highest concentration of conflict occurs within less than two blocks of gang boundaries, the researchers discovered.

Stay away from the edges man.

Bras

Couple of stories about bras so I can have gratuitous boobeh talk. First up, The Artificial Cleavage Boosting Technology aka the Wonderbra is back with a pull stringy thingy.

Also out is the Joey Bra. Looks like a pretty nifty invention. With short video.

Active Shooter Training

Probably not a good thing to have Armed Agents Run Away And Hide From Gunmen. Um, I want the guys with guns to engage while the rest of us who can't carry at our workplace to run and hide.

Planes

Heh. Navy Says It Caused Mysterious Skyquake. Sonic boom folks. Sonic boom. That's the sound of freedom baby.

Some sweet Aviation Photography.
