      Answer: Do not stand near dad when he is drunk and trying to ride a hover board.

      Addendum; Now I suppose that could be the 50 year old orthopedic surgeon’s ankle, but its just as likely to be the ankle of someone standing to close to said surgeon when said hover board escaped and demonstrated some basic fundamental laws of kinetic energy displacement in relationship to F=MA.

      One should never take lightly the capacity for extremely rapid acceleration and the effect of rapidly accelerating mass to transfer kinetic energy to a stationary object.

      Calculators are nearly useless for complex math, if you do not understand the basic principals of complex mathematics.

      And how better to thwart that understanding than to let young kids use them during basic math tests.

      Doesn’t actually work that way. If you don’t understand the principals of math, having a calculator doesn’t work. Allowing kids to use calculators simply allows them to solve complex equations in minutes, that would otherwise have taken days or weeks. It doesn’t deprive them of any understanding of fundamental principals.

      This was really driven home to me in my engineering classes where the calculations for load bearing strengths of materials would have taken months to do by hand, but could be done in mere hours using AutoCad or SolidWorks.

      I understood what you meant the first time. What I’m saying is they are allowing calculators in elementary school when BASIC math is being taught.

      We had to memorize the times-tables. They use a calculator. We had to learn basic fractions and division. They use a calculator.

      See what I mean?

      So far Trump is playing it straight down the line. His much touted backtracking on Chinese currency manipulation is not quite as straight forward as the MSM makes it out to be. Big surprise.

      On April 14, the U.S. Treasury Department released its semiannual report on the currency exchange policies of major U.S. trading partners. The report found that no country’s policies could be considered manipulative within the context of both current definitions and past practices. However the US kept China, Japan, Germany, Taiwan, South Korea and Switzerland on the list of countries to monitor. The findings are in contrast to Trump’s campaign rhetoric on China, but they are in line with current economic thinking and definitions regarding currency manipulation.

      Trump’s administration is being constrained by the current legal definitions and case law and by past practice criteria — bilateral trade balances, current account balances and currency intervention policies — used in previous reports to determine which countries should be monitored. Nothing has changed so it’s no wonder the bureaucracy had the same opinions that they’ve held for the past 8 years.

      Trump promised to label China a currency manipulator on his first day in office because in the 2016 report China met two of the three criteria needed to be labeled a currency manipulator. In the recent report China met only one. To keep pressure on China, the Trump will now also monitor countries that account for a disproportionate percentage of the overall U.S. trade deficit.

      While the 2017 report conclusions are similar, the report takes a markedly different tone than last year’s. The two 2016 reports were more functional in tone, while this first 2017 report dwelled on extraneous information such as China’s history of manipulation and there has been quite a lot of that over the past decade.

      Though Trump may have pulled back from some of his election rhetoric positions, the 2017 report still represents a more aggressive document than previous reports. Trump’s first report on currency policies does not preclude more assertive trade actions being taken in the months ahead. In the future, the new focus on monitoring countries with a large proportion of the U.S. trade deficit could lead to investigations into other countries that do not necessarily meet any of the three criteria for being labeled a currency manipulator but are manipulating their currencies in other ways. Manipulation is part art and part science (definitions). Germany, South Korea Japan and others are skilled in covering up rampant currency manipulation by burying it in a wilderness of regulation and thousands of manipulatively complex laws. Nailing a country with currency manipulation is like trying to hit a bullet with a bullet. Often pressuring a probable malefactor is enough to ‘modify’ the action enough to allow one to ‘live with it’ and to trade it off for a gain somewhere else …. like North Korea.

      I’ve heard that the Chinese outside China but also inside China when chatting privately are VERY worried about the state of Xi’s Chinese economy. What you see is nowhere what the true state of the economy and they fear that Xi is making doing business more difficult. Corruption in China is extremely high from top to bottom but especially at the top provincial level. It also appears that China’s attempt to generate a home market to lower the risks on the trade front have failed miserably.The historic two tier economy is experiencing a massive and growing gulf between the 3-400 million ‘coastals’ and the Chinese from the hinterland. The banking system is broken and China is almost totally out of foreign exchange reserves. VERY scary for all of the traders outside nina. We have now initiated an ability to be paid in Renmimbi rather than dollars and have joined a Renmimbi buyers group that trades both ways in the Chinese currency before they run out of foreign exchange access.

      As far as Norkos are concerned China owns Un. Over 90% of North Korea’s trade is with China. The Chinese have just turned back a fleet of coal ships headed for China and from today (US time the only Chinese air carrier flying into North Korea has ceased operating on that route. The North Koreans are fast running out of foreign exchange and with the roll back in Chinese purchases of North Korean products there is going to be a serious problem this summer for Un. It’s fortunate that it’s getting warmer and the crops are due in soon but by October Un will be in really REALLY serious trouble. The army and party officials will still get fed but the rest not so much. North Korea might be in a use it or lose it situation and that would be bad for EVERYBODY’s day.

      I’m still going for a decapitation strike by China on UN and the installation of a Chinese puppet leading North Korea (probably from the North Korean army) dismantling the nuclear program (they REALLY can’t afford it) and being offered ‘shelter’ under China’s nuclear umbrella.

      But that’s just me!

      As for what North Korea can do to prevent a US … or for that matter Chinese strike against the North’s nuclear program. The answer is absolutely.

      Currently the last two launches of North Korean missiles have been failures and there is strong speculation out there that the US or one of its allies (read Israels) have implanted a computer virus that is screwing with the NK missiles. The US has also places the capability to knock down any NK missile that appears headed towards US or Japanese targets. Once final stage burnout is complete the destination of the warhead is governed by physics alone.

      This is the last type of technology that China needs on its doorstep. Additionally the US appears to have developed a covert strategic Stealth Drone armed with a much miniaturised version of the 1 Megawatt power LASER system originally mounted in a Boeing 747, for destroying missile warheads during their boost phase.

      The North Koreans under Un do have one ace up their sleeve. A truly massive medium and long range artillery system (thousands of tubes) that places the 10 million inhabitants of Seoul South Korea in range.

      @ Aussie Infidel:

      Thank you sir! Then there’s this and I don’t know if it’s meaningful or not

      U.S troops arrive in Top End for Marine Rotational Force Darwin

      THE first of 1250 US Marines have begun to touch down in Darwin as they “stand ready to fight” against North Korea should the situation escalate.

      The Marines began arriving in Australia’s tropical north on Tuesday for a six-month deployment during which they will conduct exercises with Australian and visiting Chinese forces.

      Commanding Officer of Marine Rotational Force Darwin, Lieutenant Colonel Brian S. Middleton, says the 1250 US Marine deployment to Darwin stands ready to fight if tensions between his country and North Korea escalate into direct conflict.

      The 25-year annual deployment program started by former U.S. President Barack Obama in 2011 is part of the U.S. “pivot” to Asia at a time of increased assertiveness by China.

      @ eaglesoars:
      Not particularly significant Eagles. Talesman Sabre happens every year outside Darwin and the US Marines are a very regular addition. There are the usual token arrivals like South Koreans, Indonesians, Malays and Singaporeans, and even the odd few Kiwis. I see that we have a few Chinese ‘observers’ attending as well. No doubt trying to steal anything that isn’t nailed down. I don’t believe that the Chinese are actual operational soldiers. Most would be Intel or comms specialists and they are legendary in nicking stuff. Leave a laptop under the table at mess and if you don’t keep your boot on it under the table, it will just walk away with a friendly Chinese sergeant.

      Most of the exercise actually happens in the air and way out over the horizon at sea. The US Marine Battalion is a tripwire force and a sort of get to watch how the cousins operate at home exercise. Most of the spearpoint Aussie combat units live in the deep North of Queensland and the Northern Territory permanently now.

      We used to really enjoy operating with the US Marines as their quality and standards were always high, though some of their kit looked a bit worn out. Unlike the US Army, who had flash gear but they weren’t quite as sharp as the Marines. We mostly exercised with the US 25th Light infantry Div, who were better than most of the Continental US army units. The Marines however were always able to keep up with the Aussies. Technically and when operating large formations the US were superb. Not quite so much when it got down in the weeds however. NorForce were always the ‘enemy’ plus a few ASAS from Perth. NorForce lived in the bush 24/7 and were Reservists who were always ‘On Duty’ as they were the eyes and ears of the deep North. Mostly cattle farmers, miners, fishermen and cops and about 50% of them were local aborigines. They were impossible to find most of the time let alone (theoretically kill).

      The Indonesians were a bit of a joke but they had a good sense of humour as all of the Aussie ‘ Enemy profiles’ were based on Indonesian unit structures, and everyone knew it.
      🙂

      It’s interesting that the video clips that were used in this story were about 5 years old. What the hell was that all about? Yet the clip was obviously meant for US audiences who it was assumed wouldn’t know one Aussie Prime Minister from another. Obama was a bit of a give away however.

      I doubt that China will cross the Yual river Eagles. The 175,000 Chinese on the NorKo border are there to put lead in the pencil of senior NK military, who if the time comes, will take out Un.

      China is in a bit of a bind actually as NK is out of the box and playing up, and that attracts US ‘flies’. Something China doesn’t want.

      30 | April 18, 2017 8:24 am

      The South Koreans are currently shitting themselves as Seoul is very much in range of the massive NK artillery. Not that it will last long but until it’s destroyed Seoul will be a hellhole for its 10 million inhabitants.

      Un can’t protect his nukes but he can seriously cruel the pitch on the 38th Parallel as he goes to hell.

      The US 7th Cav has moved away from the border a few years ago. Someone I know well was in the point vehicle at the front of the Vanguard in the lead Battalion. A position he would rather NOT be in. Fortunately he’s now ‘back aways’. He used to say that he was hiding behind just an inch of armour and a wire fence and being watched by 2 million NoKors with ill intent.

      Seoul has always been the hostage. Now is not a good time to be re-thinking that ‘no nukes’ policy. I hope, for their sake, that behind the scenes, somebody has been doing interesting things in Mom’s basement.

      It’s interesting that the video clips that were used in this story were about 5 years old. What the hell was that all about? Yet the clip was obviously meant for US audiences who it was assumed wouldn’t know one Aussie Prime Minister from another. Obama was a bit of a give away however.

      I dunno. How many clips ARE there? And the editors assumed correctly. If not for the Crocodile Dundee movies and Steve Irwin, most Americans would think Australia was a theme park at Universal Studios based on an extinct continent you can study at the Smithsonian. Unless of course, you want to visit the land of the Hobbits on the island of New Zealand, in the English Channel.

      It will be interesting to see if the perception/performance of the U.S. services improves over the course of the Trump admin.

      And speaking of the Chinese stealing anything that isn’t nailed down – we really have to do something about our ‘anchor baby’ laws. They’ve been coming here for years to give birth so their children will have dual citizenship. And it’s not because they’re expecting dual loyalty, the fuckers are breeding infiltrators right in front of us.

      I’m not sure. Do they understand that Frank is not some helpless stooge but the actual enemy and can’t actually say it, or do they think he’s just some helpless stooge? They obviously understand the problem and its philosophical/political genesis. Part of MY problem is that I don’t really know what that publication is, who writes it and who it is written for. Except that they’ve got Frank’s number. I remember reading a week or so ago an article on what it would take to remove him from the Papacy using the supposed logic that his election was illegitimate but the grounds for it seemed seriously thin. I still believe that all this is somehow connected to Pope Ben’s retirement. I’ve heard the blackmail arguments, etc., and perhaps there’s some truth to them. I just find it hard to believe that he would be cowed by anything like that.

      Racial ideology[edit]
      As Michael Muhammad Knight explained in an essay for Vice, “The first lesson I learned from the Five Percent was simple: Fuck White people. Seriously, ‘White people are devils.'”[21] He was quoted in the post as saying, “Whiteness is weak and wicked and inferior—basically just an errant child who needs to be corrected.”[22] Michael Muhammad Knight has stated, “The Post never balanced my ‘Fuck White people’ line with my acknowledgment that there were/are actually white whigger Five Percenters, a phenomenon that I had discussed with the writer.”[23] Knight also said in the Vice article, “A Five Percenter elder told me that if I rejected White supremacy and strove for righteousness, I could not be called a devil; though he believed in the Five Percenter doctrine of White devils, he would not hold that against me as an individual.”[21]

      Five-percenters are purported to believe that black men are physically and intellectually superior as the natural descendants of God, and black men as ‘Gods’ are the lords of the earth, and the rightful rulers of the world and its people. Women are known as ‘Earths’, fulfill their needs and assist them in its rule.[24] Five-Percenters are discouraged from marrying anyone of the White Race as doing so would dilute the purity of their blood but the anti-White view is primarily targeted at White men.[25][not in citation given] Like the Nation of Islam, the Five-Percenter ideology promulgates the theory that the White Race was created by a black scientist named Yakub, who lived 6,600 years ago and was responsible for creating the White Race to be a race of devils. He did this through a form of selective breeding referred to as grafting, while living on the island of Patmos.[26][not in citation given]

      AP Changes Fresno Shooter’s Words From ‘Allahu Akbar’

      The Associated Press edited the words of a Muslim man who allegedly killed three white people in downtown Fresno Tuesday afternoon and shouted “Allahu Akbar!”

      The suspect, 39-year-old Kori Ali Muhammad holds fervent anti-Trump beliefs according to his social media profile, and he told police afterward that he hates white people.

      Rather than reporting the gunman’s literal words, however, the AP reported the gunman as saying “God is great.”

      Wouldn’t want anyone to think he was a Muslim or anything…

      BREAKING: FBI Obtained FISA Warrant To Monitor Trump Aide By Using Fake Dossier As ‘Evidence’

      Washington (CNN)The FBI last year used a dossier of allegations of Russian ties to Donald Trump’s campaign as part of the justification to win approval to secretly monitor a Trump associate, according to US officials briefed on the investigation.

      The dossier has also been cited by FBI Director James Comey in some of his briefings to members of Congress in recent weeks, as one of the sources of information the bureau has used to bolster its investigation, according to US officials briefed on the probe.

      This includes approval from the secret court that oversees the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to monitor the communications of Carter Page, two of the officials said. Last year, Page was identified by the Trump campaign as an adviser on national security.

      Of course China will put their own man in charge of NK. He’ll be a manipulatable communist that will maintain NK as a Chinese buffer state. The Chinese will never allow South Korea to gain direct access to the Chinese border.

      What China MAY do is strip NK of the Kim family and associated hangers-on and de-nuclearise it after placing NK under the Chinese nuclear umbrella.

      Every communist nation needs secure buffer states around it to prevent the influences of the West seeping in and corrupting all of the comrades.

      GA Special Election goes to a runoff in June.

      The results of Special Elections here in KS and in GA, both pretty red districts, don’t seem to be a good sign. Will we see as many losses for the GOP with Trump in the White House as the Democrats saw under Obama?

      Yes, it’s early and the Dems and snowflakes are out in full force. The media hates Trump as much as they loved Obama, so they’re playing up everything as much as they can. But it’s still something to look at, and work to change for 2018.

      oh bullshit. One Dem couldn’t pull 50% against 11 Repubs and one Repub got 20% of the vote. Did you watch this guy speak? He’s Anthony Weiner with some culture. I wanted to smack his smarmy, smirking face into next year. YUCK. If that’s the Dem bench, we could run Toto and win.

      Will we see as many losses for the GOP with Trump in the White House as the Democrats saw under Obama?

      Wrong question.

      Right question: Will Paul Ryan survive as speaker? Because he’s an incompetent equipment mgr for the football team who hates the quarterback and keeps deflating the ball and blaming it on the ref.

      And let’s see what happens when Hollywood packs up and leaves, the money dries up and he’s left standing there with the entire GOP ripping him to shreds. I wonder if the Dems will even show up in June. Also, did these Hollywood shreks even KNOW that you had to get 50% when they started this whole thing? Or did they assume simple plurality and saw a large field of Republicans dividing the vote and letting wussie get in? Because they had to wonder how a deep red district like this one would ever elect a Democrat.

      Interesting to note that a polling place announced that 30 people showed up and were turned away as not living in the District. I’m seriously doubting that they were GOP. I guess the Hollywierds and liberal state Dems didn’t also realize that Georgia has a voter ID law.


    95. 98 | April 19, 2017 10:05 am

      @ eaglesoars:

      And I would be very surprised if Ryan survives as Speaker in 2018. Someone should start whispering the words “Eric Cantor” in his ear. Because there’s no guarantee you’ll even be on the ballot in November, Ryan, if you don’t get your effing act together.

      Apparently Bill O’Reilly is getting booted from Fox

      Why, after decades of being in the business, is this happening all of a sudden. Lisa Bloom, gloria Allred’s spawn, said her phone is ringing off the hook with women complaining about O’Reilly. O’Reilly has said he’s already paid women off.

      He never should have done that. We’ve seen what happened with Trump (and what was attemped w/Corey Lewindowsky) – totally fabricated crap from fame sluts.

      I don’t know if the allegations are true, but when stuff starts coming out of the woodwork, I suspect termites. One story I heard was a black woman who worked for a different company that shared office space. She said O’Reilly never spoke to her but made grunting noises like a gorilla and called her ‘hot chocolate’ – which would have been hard to do if he never talked to her.

      Not really. It was very hot that night and as usually in summer fires broke out. It is very likely that arson had been involved because of land speculation. This does not say that Tigellinus was involved.

      Marcus Ulpius Traianus (Trajan) who has been called “optimus princeps” (best/ideal leader) by senators of his time as well as by historians until today once said that “during the regency of Nero Rome had her best and most peaceful time” and he didn’t say this about Nero’s first years as emperor but about his last years.

      good, the VA system is so jacked it’s not even funny. and, i bet cvs et al are cheaper too.

      the last time the VA got in trouble, they hired a ton of nurses…but not floor nurses, they hired managers and RN informatics specialists, not boot on the ground RN’s to actually take care of the patients in a timely manner.

      i shadowed at the VA here in PGH for a shift and ran out of the place, the ineficiencies and total bullshit tht one had to go through toget things and meds for the patient was absurd. i would have never survived there.

      and right on time, they are hiring more staff…more managers and informatics peeps, no floor rn’s or patient care techs…

      BTW – Lisa Bloom is the attorney that was “assisting” that despicable, lying, sham plaintiff in her bogus satutory rape suit involving Trump. You know, the one that was never served on him and filed no less than four times because the idiot couldn’t get it right? She was never the counsel “of record” for the case. She was only the counsel “of TV cameras.” She and her asshat of a mother should be drummed out of the legal profession. BTW, I hear that the California Bar is, in fact, investigating Allwet regaring inappropriate conduct as an attorney. She might even get disbarred.

      Hell, she SHOULD have been disbarred for her conduct during the 2010 California Governor election, when she exposed Meg Whitman’s underpaid housekeeper as an illegal alien, thereby jeopardizing her with criminal prosecution (but Allwet was safe – like Moonbeam was going to direct her to be detained.

      All the State Bar will say is “possible misconduct”. It’s interesting that they’ve even gone so far as to announce they’re investigating her – those things are kept pretty hush hush. Usually you don’t hear a thing until the announcement of suspension or disbarment is made.

      Frankly, I think she abuses her clients, abuses the courts, and probably engages in slander and libel. Under Sullivan, of course, she gets away with in in that she would probably prevail in a civil suit since actual malice is hard to prove.

      Not so with the California Bar. They take misconduct very seriously. Hell, we’ve had some cases in MY office where she represented the plaintiff and even the LIBERAL attorneys hate her effing guts. They continually call her unprofessional.

      Wondering if Trump will put the practice back and maybe start getting tough with Cuba’s repressions. I’ve always felt that whole “embargo is killin our economy” was BS. Every other country around the world was free to trade with Cuba, and everyone else could travel there. There are plenty of international hoteliers, restraunteurs, resort developers that were free to build and develop Cuba.

      Berkeley cancels a speech by conservative pundit Ann Coulter, citing fears of more violent protests

      After riots and violent protests in and around their campus during the past three months, officials at the University of California at Berkeley said Wednesday that the school is canceling a planned speech by conservative firebrand Ann Coulter because of safety concerns. University officials said that they made the decision to cancel Coulter’s appearance after assessing the violence that flared on campus in February, when the same college Republican group invited right-wing provocateur and a former Breitbart editor, Milo Yiannopoulos, to speak.

      1. I don’t know what’s unconstitutional about it.

      2. what does ‘go forward’ mean? They’ll set her up in somebody’s living room?

      3. given that Berkeley cops just asked Antifa if they wanted ‘symbolic’ arrests, indicating they have no intention of enforcing the laws, it’s probably a good idea to have the talk cancelled.

      Castle Rock v. Gonzales, 545 U.S. 748 (2005), is a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court ruled, 7–2, that a town and its police department could not be sued under 42 U.S.C. §1983 for failing to enforce a restraining order, which had led to the murder of a woman’s three children by her estranged husband.

      See also:

      Warren v. District of Columbia[1] (444 A.2d. 1, D.C. Ct. of Ap. 1981) is an oft-quoted[2] District of Columbia Court of Appeals case that held that the police do not owe a specific duty to provide police services to citizens based on the public duty doctrine.

      McMullin owes nearly $670,000 for his failed presidential bid

      Washington • Evan McMullin ran a long-shot — and ultimately failed — campaign last year to deny Donald Trump enough Electoral College votes to keep him from the presidency, but now the Utah native faces a hefty bill that will be challenging to pay off and could hamper efforts to enter the political arena again.

      McMullin, who jumped into the presidential race a few months before Election Day, still owes some $670,000 to vendors who helped his campaign, including more than half a million dollars to a law firm.

      Presidential candidates who didn’t win the White House often face a large tab when the dust clears — it took Hillary Clinton four years to pay off millions in debt from her 2008 campaign — but for McMullin, who as an independent has no party apparatus to help, the bills are daunting.

      And vendors are worried they might get stiffed.

      “From what I know, they do not have any capability or plans to pay all the vendors they still owe money,” says Tanner Leatham, owner and CEO of Utah-based Gathering Inc., which solicited signatures to get McMullin on the ballot in five states and is still owed more than $10,000. “They have told me they cannot pay us what they owe.”

      Leatham adds that for a small, startup firm, unpaid bills sting even more.

      McMullin’s latest filing with the Federal Election Commission shows six companies with outstanding bills, the largest of which is the Florida-based law firm Hopping, Green & Sams, which is owed nearly $520,000. The firm declined to comment on the bills.

      What?

      Bill Kristol’s not paying this??
