Overnight Open Thread (12 Sep 2014)

Democrats are more concerned about the NFL and Ray Rice. IRS scandal? Benghazi? Fast and Furious? Nope, no interest there. Dead Americans and corruption don't interest Democrats unless it involves a Republican. Funny I haven't heard these same Democrats going after the judge and prosecutor that allowed Rice to plead to a misdemeanor but threw the book at this woman for a firearms violation.

Here's a fun thought exercise. What if the NFL drags out its investigation into the Ray Rice thingy for 491 days like the IRS scandal? Would that be acceptable to Democrats as it has been for all other scandals involving this administration?

Obama administration shows its pettiness with no statement on the passing of Joan Rivers.


Northern Lights

The CME from the sun's X-class solar flare the other day arrived today so there is some potential for you northern morons to get some northern light action tonight. As of 2030 EST, the geomagnetic storm was a strong level G3. Hopefully it holds for a few more hours for us.

Here's the latest aurora forecast.

The Border

Not an American and you cross the border illegally? No problem. Now if you're an American citizen and you cross the border illegally? You get arrested and slapped with a $5K fine.

Disaster Kits

What's in your disaster kit? BTW, I noticed there was a very important category missing from this disaster kit article. Weapons.

Cosplay On An Aircraft Carrier

Medical Training

Navy sends medical staff to Chicago ER for combat training. Ironic that Chicago has the most stringent gun laws.

When You Know You're In A Country Run By Idiots

11 ways you know you live in a country run by idiots. My God. I bet we could add so many more to this list.

1. If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally, you live in a country run by idiots.

2. If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion, you live in a country run by idiots.

3. If you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor or check out a library book, but not to vote on who runs the government, you live in a country run by idiots.

Israeli Female Fighters

Israeli female fighters on patrol. I bet these Israeli ladies would kick the Al-Khansaa Brigades ass.

Brewing Beer

This college actually lets students minor in craft beer. Kinda cool but do you really need to spend education dollars on something that people are doing without having to go to college for? In my last squadron, at least half of the officers were brewing their own beers.
