20141127 14:09 Thing From Snowy Mountain @ Free Republic: Russian insider says Putin openly planned invasion of Ukraine since 2003.
20141127 13:25 Pappy One from wretchard:

Matt Breunig at Gawker argues that riots save money and he puts a dollar figure on it. According to Becker, punishing bad behavior increases the costs of engaging in such behavior and thereby reduces the amount of it. The bad behavior rioting curbs is the tendency of white police officers to be “needlessly aggressive toward blacks”.

It’s interesting to compare this calculation with Jonathan Gruber’s 1997 paper for the National Bureau of Statistics, which argues that “legalization of abortion in five states around 1970, by followed by legalization nationwide due to the 1973 Roe vs Wade decision … saved the government over $14 billion in welfare expenditures through 1994.” Even better, John Donohue, of Yale Law School, and Steven Levitt, of the University of Chicago, found that ‘abortion cuts crime’. If abortion cuts crime and saves society money it is mostly African-Americans who get the treatment.

Let us return to the question: is it cost-beneficial to burn buildings and kill innocent bystanders to send a message to the White Police Establishment? Isn’t it rational to promote abortion to save on welfare and cut crime? Is it cheaper to promote death panels in health care systems rather than pay for the treatment of the elderly? The answer to the previous questions may all be “yes” and yet the price of assent may be more than we can ever afford. The idea that “human life is sacred” is important because it functions as a foundation stone. It is the axiom on which rests the whole of our civilization. One can demonstrate, as Mssrs Gruber, Donohue or Levitt have done, that it is “cost-beneficial” to abort minority babies. But you accept that proposition at the price of prying out the foundation stone of Western civilization. And for many that’s simply too much to pay.
20141127 09:44 Pappy Happy Thanksgiving from Hell With Saguaros.

20141127 09:18 Skidmark I'm watching for a LE run on bigger slugs and more mags.
20141127 08:01 BrerRabbit Happy Thanksgiving.

You know that just before that first Thanksgiving dinner there was one wise, old Native American woman saying, "Don't feed them. If you feed them, they'll never leave.
20141126 20:06 Pappy Where the hell was Chuckie six years ago on that?
20141126 19:59 badanov An average man can run 152 feet (50 yards) in about six seconds.
20141126 19:20 Grunter Sub text to middle class voters: next time we really WILL look after you, and this time we're not lying. Honest we are. Not. Not lying, I mean, not not honest. Honest.
Look, I'll go again, OK?
20141126 18:29 Shipman Not sure, but it looks like Schumer tried to push glow worm under the bus.
20141126 18:27 Shipman Wow, Chuck Schumer leaves the reservation and crosses state lines, sez ObamaCare was a mistake, should have used mandate to focus on middle class recovery!
20141126 17:45 49 Pan So my big question for officer Wilson is: At 152 feet away Brown turned and started running toward you. You had discharged your weapon numerous times to include clearing a jam. Tell me why, after hitting him at least twice, did you not drop your clip and reload? At 12 feet you shot your last few rounds hitting him in the head, if you would have missed the head shot, you would be dead. Remember kiddies, even if the clip is not empty - at every break- RELOAD!!!
20141126 17:09 trailing wife For me, too, junkiron -- whether of facts or of process. :-)
20141126 09:22 junkiron Thank you for your assistance TW. Every day is a learning experience at Rantburg
20141126 08:18 trailing wife junkiron, I fixed the title and replaced the home page URL with the one specific to that post (http://junkirony.com/blog/blog6.php/the-trouble-with-ferguson). Using the home page URL automatically triggers the DUPE (duplicate) heading, because you've used it before. If you click on Preview before you submit an article, you'll see what it looks like, and can make changes as needed at that point.

We've all climbed this particular learning curve, so no worries. ;-)
20141126 01:02 junkiron @ MODs, I posted an article today on the front page: THE TROUBLE WITH FERGUSON.
Not sure why the Dupe entry thingy came up in the title.

Also putting the title in all caps was unintentional on my part. If you decide to edit the title perhaps something like The Trouble With Ferguson would be more appropriate.

Thanks for all you do.
20141126 00:01 Alaska Paul From here on up, 49 Pan, it's downhill all the way.
20141125 23:57 Alaska Paul 3dc---What a fireball! Some serious combustion temperatures. One hell of a video. Stay safe and thirsty, my friends.

20141125 23:31 49 Pan condorman, you right. Things could be worse, so I waited and sure enough. Things got worse!!!
20141125 22:54 3dc the proper song for today:
20141125 20:23 3dc It could be worse. Our little Il Duce could have a hang nail or miss a putt or something.
20141125 20:19 badanov Maybe this will make you feel a little better, Pan:

20141125 19:30 49 Pan I'm just numb to the news anymore. Ferguson, IRS, Fast and furious, Obamacare, Amnesty, Iran, 17 trillion, on and on and on. I'm just numb and wondering how it can get any worse.

20141125 13:56 3dc Skidmark - technique was a 3D view using not lasers but normal gun IR illuminator into a DLP and telephoto - return telephoto into near IR cam.
Pretty robust.
20141125 12:58 49 Pan They should have hosed the protestors down. Not hammer them, just get them all soaking wet. The streets would get icy and they would get too cold to rage...
20141125 11:17 Skidmark Indexing on the 'red-eye', eh?
I would think the effects of smoke, CS and rage enlarging the capillaries would clutter the signal return.
20141125 11:11 3dc There's a proof of concept done a few years back for the military of retinal id of perps from a distance with telephoto lens and lasers. Seems like it might be more appropriate for ID of perps rioting. Tests at 100 feet worked fine.
20141125 08:37 Skidmark Guess I'll tuck away another couple of mags in the truck.
20141125 02:14 badanov It's late. Look like its out of control in Ferguson.
20141125 02:12 badanov Listening to the Missouri state police scanner, several buildings are on fire now in Dellwood, including buildings close to the Dellwood City hall

Looting is spreading east towards Moline Acres and the river.

Six l00ters detained so far since an hour ago.

Reports are of 15 50 cars with possible looters at a Home Depot. Gunfire was reported as l00ters were apparently trying to shoot up the st0re locks.

Now reporting no one is break1ng in now.

20141124 16:25 badanov The Red Army right on up 'til the 1950s used the term commissar, political officer or political instructor for its commissars.

The term zampolit was coined after the 1950s.

Just some useless background information...
20141124 16:16 Pappy From what I can see of the list of SecDef candidates, they didn't list any of the "policy people" the White House inserted into the Pentagon to play KGB-political-officer.
20141124 15:59 badanov Decision to be announced at 2000 hrs EDT.
20141124 15:21 badanov Ferguson announcement this afternoon.
20141124 12:31 Thing From Snowy Mountain The bad thing about Hagel resigning is, McCain and Boehner would vote to confirm The Evil Midnight Bomber What Bombs At Midnight if Obama nominated him.

20141122 16:43 Dale He's over in Russia at this time. Girlfriend they say. He likes Putin. Then at 62 he's getting back into the ring. Loves the sport. A friend said he had no boxing abilty. He boxed in the early years at same training gyms. Mikey was good friends with John Gotti.My friend did a portrait and gave it to him. If he liked you he was the best of friends.


20141122 16:42 49 Pan So lets say they keep doing these big lead ups to the weekend with the grand jury and then put it off again. Two things happen. Protestors get tired of showing up and protestors, and the organizations that fund them, cant afford to keep going home and coming back. I think this is a tactic from the feds to root out all but the hard core so they can better track them. How many more false starts will happen before Al Sharpton misses a weekend?
20141122 15:26 badanov They're saying Officer Wilson will be no billed. The grand jury left without making a decision. It is up to the prosecutor to either convene a new grand jury, or dr0p the ca5e altogether.
20141122 14:38 Thing From Snowy Mountain Why, I remember when FDR had to deliver it on Television for the first time... of course, all they had back during the Great Derpression was the big three, so keeping the wingnuts calmed down was a lot easier. [/biden]
20141122 13:43 badanov I did not know that.
20141122 12:52 Shipman State of the .Union for most of our history was a written document delivered to Congress by messenger.
20141122 10:40 Pappy Not inviting him to deliver it in Congress is a start.
20141122 10:20 Thing From Snowy Mountain Pappy, unfortunately they mean some other place than Congress, rather than some other country than the United States.

He should be forced to give the State of the Union speech to his employers, whether in Riyadh or Mexico City or Beijing....
