Overnight Open Thread (17 Jul 2015)

Not surprising. Chattanooga shooter obtained some of his guns illegally. Now we need to find the seller(s) and hold them accountable.


This Day In History

I'm sure y'all know the story of Charles Lindberg but how many of you know the story of Wrong Way Corrigan?

EPA

No surprise with what the EPA said, just surprised they admitted it. EPA head Gina McCarthy admits Obama climate regs have no measurable impact on climate. However, there is a measurable impact on the cost of living.

Military Rule Breakers

This was posted by one of you morons in the Facebook group. Wish we had more folks like this now. 5 times when ignoring the military's rules paid off in the long run.

Boyd had pioneered the theory of energy-maneuverability, and knew that Air Force leaders were trying to turn the new F-X into a flying turkey, akin to the F-111. According to Robert Corham's "Boyd: The Fighter Pilot Who Changed the Art of War," Boyd personally flew from Washington, D.C., to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, threw his wallet across a crowded conference table, and told a group of colonels, "You fuckers are lying," referring to the performance capabilities of the new fighter jet.

Boyd's ideas, and boldness, helped turn the F-X into a dogfighter with plenty of power and great maneuverability. The F-X became the Air Force's F-15 Eagle, one of the most successful fighter aircraft in history.

Boston Strong?

There are some really dumb people in positions of power in this country. Metal fan charged for wearing fake bullet belt. The unwanted blog makes a good point here.

Even if the belt of ammo was a belt of live ammo, you know what's missing from this story? A gun. Where's the M-60 machine gun that would be required to actually make the ammo go "bang?" According to THIS, "the passengers were in a panic, fearing that the suspect was about to pull out a weapon." Where, exactly, did these brave Bostonian geniuses think he was going to pull out a 30-pound, four-foot-long machine gun from?

State Zero

This is actually a pretty good post apocalyptic short film.

Standing vs Sitting

I've noticed at work more and more folks are getting the workstations that allow them to stand most of the day. They say it is supposed to be healthier for you. Well, maybe not.

How Democrats Really Feel About US Citizens

Seems to be a trend. Gutierrez: Steinle death 'a little thing'. Murder is a 'little thing'?

Pelosi: Release of American hostages should not be part of the Iran deal buy hey, we did happen to mention them but were powerless to do any negotiating.

You're only useful when they need your vote or your money. Otherwise, you're just a turd stuck on the bottom of their shoe. Just ask Ambassador Stevens.

Lemonade Stand Robber

There's a special place in hell for one who robs a girls' lemonade stand even after they gave him a free cup of lemonade because he said he had no money.
