Overnight Open Thread (23 Jun 2017)

It's going to take years to build back up trust in the FBI and other government agencies. Who does the FBI work for?

Considering how ludicrous the FBI's conclusions are as it relates to an attack on the third ranking member of the House of Representatives, you might reconsider whether to trust the FBI's conclusions in other areas, as well. And this is how our faith in institutions is degraded: steadily, gradually, with incident after incident where men in suits stand in front of microphones and make claims we know are not the whole truth.

If CIA contractors are willing to hack vending machines, what else do you think they're willing to do with capabilities they have access to in their official capacity? No one has really been punished at the IRS for their political shenanigans and the DOJ obviously interfered with the Hillary private server investigation. Until big name folks are held accountable for their violations, public faith in these institutions will continue to crater.

USS Fitzgerald

This still does not explain how the crew on the USS Fitzgerald were unaware of the other ship but that answer will probably have to wait for the investigation to be completed. Freighter was on autopilot when it hit U.S. destroyer.

Actual Headline

NY Post just having fun with a story. Morons busted trying to steal cops' cocks.

Spaghetti Western Billy Jean Cover


Seriously? The Army is the fattest military branch. Evidently all the services have seen an increase in their body mass index.

To College Or Not To College

I still have quite a few years to go before my kids are eligible for college but I'm really hard pressed to justify the costs. Four reasons why college degrees are becoming useless.

F-35 Paris Show

Not too shabby. I do love that 360 pedal turn though.

Big Brother

I can see a lot of false positives being generated by this for out of state plates. Rhode Island bill sees highway surveillance cams ticketing uninsured motorists. Out of staters aren't going to be coming back to fight a $120 ticket. Easy money for the state and the contractor, who just so happens to get a 50% cut. Exit question. What happens when the uninsured motorist is an illegal alien?

Guns & Booze

I'm pretty sure there's a joke here somewhere when you get into an argument with your wife about sex and in order to make a point you try shoot the little guy off. Well, he fired 4 times and missed.

Where's The Civility

Keep telling us how you really feel Democrats. As Scalise leaves intensive care, Democrats leave civility far behind.

BTW, if one were to choose what one word would sum up Democrat/Prog reaction to Trump and anything GOP related in 2017 and it would be hyperbole.
