Why Trump Matters (Maybe) [CBD] | Main | EMT 6/12/15 derit [krakatoa]

Overnight Open Thread (11 Jul 2015)

The GOP. It goes out of its way to be the party of stupid. Republicans have needlessly undermined their ability to resist the Iran deal.

with Republicans in control of both houses of Congress and seemingly unified against Obama's awful Iran deal, what was the point of supporting and enacting legislation that has made it exponentially harder for Congress to reject the deal, preserve the sanctions, and keep the military option on the table?

breathable Cocktails

This should probably be set up for the next meet up. Cloud of breathable cocktail room.

Talk about immersive alcohol environment: fine spirits and mixer are fed through humidifiers to create air super-saturated with alcohol. Alcohol would enter the bloodstream of the person inside the room through the body's mucus membranes (primarily the lungs, but also the eyeballs).

State Rankings

These are America's 10 worst states.

I like this chart better. These are the states where $100 goes farther.

I would factor in sanctuary cities in the worst states in America list. Here's how sanctuary policies have directly led to thousands of crimes against Americans.

Pizza Math

Heh. Pizza Math.

Raising The Minimum Wage

Not a shocker for those of us not taught by common core math. Chipotle raises it menu prices 14% to offset wage hike. Evidently Alison Griswold at Slate thinks it's no biggie as only rich people eat there.


Hostile command climate gets another scalp. Read the whole thing. This is just a taste.

so she changed things. Boy howdy, did she change things. Things that had been accepted for decades in the unit - like female Marine recruits far underperforming males in rifle qualification. Germano was on solid ground here. Any experienced trainer can tell you women can compete shot-for-shot with their male counterparts on any flat range, and the Marines have made the flat, known-distance range the foundation stone of their world-renowned reputation for riflery.

She didn't cut failing recruits slack. She didn't cut her officers any slack. And she didn't cut herself any slack, either. She treated everyone the same - like adults. Professionals. Marines.

So the underperformers made complaints and got the Lt. Col. fired.

Slang Words

Iran Nuke Deal

At some point, one would think that even someone as hopeful on this Iran nuke deal as Obama is would realize that Iran (and the rest of the world) is making a fool of him and just walk away. Sadly, Obama really, really wants to say he has a deal with Iran and the fine details don't matter.

El Nino

Looks like a massive El Nino is growing which is good news for the west coast this winter.

Ginger Discrimination?

The flight was just probably overbooked but what the hell, let's go with the story. Too Ginger to fly: teenager's dream holiday turns into 'disaster' as stopped from getting on plane.
