  • Fred February 9, 2022, 12:24 PM

    She’s running from a butterfly net.

        Ward “Mooch” Carrol has a recent video discussing this accident. Not to steal his thunder, but when the Navy first puts a new plane on a carrier, the entire squadron–from the C.O. to the J.G.’s–is hand-picked. This woman, who I will try to remember was injured in a risky endeavor while serving her country, made the cut. I could speculate that she was placed there as an “equal opportunity” posting (to satisfy the yammerings of Pat Schroeder), but until I hear otherwise, I’ll presume that she was as qualified as anyone else.

        Also, Carrol and his guests had a good discussion of the autothrottles (and the effects thereof) on the F-35.

          thx, nuts&bolts assessments are always appreciated.

          I know nothing really on the topic but I’ll offer from my reading over the years- it seems aircraft tactics get re-aligned periodically and then after are pulled back to a version closer to what was replaced. aircraft designed for hybrid roles result in aircraft that do several things with diminished results rather than one thing really well.

          again, I’m less than a rank amateur.

    The world’s most well-known vegetarians?


  • John A. Fleming February 9, 2022, 12:52 PM

    What is it with these psycho Karens that infest our government? Who votes for these scolds to be inflicted on the rest of us, and why? Why do these idjits think they should be the boss of us? Weren’t they ever taught that this is a free country, which means they should leave their fellow countrymen alone to their own affairs? Nahh, they say, I have to save these people from themselves and make them do the right thing. See my genuine concern and caring, I deserve the power I am asking for.

      I did my monthly meat purchase this morning. 2 each 2.5 inch thick T-bone steaks, 12 pounds of chicken, 4 pounds of pork, 4 pounds of beef short ribs, a 3 pound chuck roast with which I will make my almost world famous chili con carne. I am so very much looking forward to exercising my white, masculine, heterosexual privilege and devouring all that meat over the next month or so.

      That Karen in the video can enjoy her tofu and I won’t nag her about it. Wish she would mind her own business and step down off the soap box…..actually, I wish she and her ilk would jump off a high bridge into the frigid February waters.

      • Mike Austin February 10, 2022, 5:58 PM

        Asking a Karen to mind her own business is like asking a bear not to shit in the woods. Karens only exist when protected by government or company decrees. Imagine such a miserable creature in Deadwood, Dakota Territory in 1870. A good whipping would have helped her immensely. Indeed, she would be cured.

        In the past such females were called “scolds”. Their punishment was the “Scold’s Bridle”:

        “In the 16th and 17th centuries a scold was a woman whose behaviour was considered anti-social. Whether charged with abusing authority, hitting someone, or sexual misconduct, scolds were judged to have disrupted the harmonious life of the community.”

        Sounds familiar, yes?

  • KCK February 9, 2022, 12:58 PM

    We laugh, and meanwhile the price of meat is through the roof. Because…Democrats.

    I finally figured out what democracy is. The freedom to steal every election.

    • ghostsniper February 9, 2022, 1:54 PM

      I figured out what freedom is. What election?

      • Casey Klahn February 9, 2022, 5:05 PM


        Election: in WA state, it is defined as the choice between democrats or more democrats. A re-pube hasn’t won here since 1990, when it all went mail-in. You may have your elections, as long as there’s no opposition. You may place your hand in the hole to pull the voting lever. If you place it in the GOPe hole, the hidden guillotine will remove said hand, but you’ll still have one more hand left to pull the Demo lever.

    As for psycho Karens: some of them are dudes, and at least one has been elected to a major public office. The new mayor of NYC is a kinda-sorta vegan who made the news this week for being caught eating fish when he dines out: “Eric Adams, a self-proclaimed vegan, confessed under duress Monday evening that he sometimes eats fish, just hours after refusing to reveal his dietary habits at a morning news conference in Brooklyn. In a prepared statement released by City Hall shortly before dinnertime, Adams came clean in the wake of reports that he’s been spotted dining out, pescatarian-style, at various restaurants. ‘Let me be clear: Changing to a plant-based diet saved my life, and I aspire to be plant-based 100 percent of the time,’ Adams said.”

    Hizzoner wrote a cookbook in 2020 titled Healthy at Last: A Plant-Based Approach to Preventing and Reversing Diabetes and Other Chronic Illnesses.

      100% plant based protein. Yuck. Dude must be a walking fart machine, punching holes in the ozone wherever he goes.

    If our whiteness is the problem… we should all wear blackface like Justin Castreau and that washed up Va gov?

    The debater is one, Carol J. Adams at Oxford Union Society (“People Who Shape Our World”) 11-22-21 debate: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiRx62VGl8Q

    Three observations –

    i) I have never met a true “vegetarian” or “vegan” who has not suffered obvious progressive, cognitive impairment (and this sadly includes certain young adult family members); I must assume from an inadequate diet, i.e., lacking protein and fats.

    ii) What would she know about “sexuality” (or the pleasure an “animal” (caught in the moment) may get from being eaten) ?

    iii) What about all the “non whites” who eat meat and fish ? Would it be racist to point out that they eat “animals” ?

  • Jack February 9, 2022, 4:15 PM

    I’d like to take that idiotic bitch to a black back yard barbecue and force her to make the speech to a bunch of half shot blacks who love their que and hate white people. They’d slap her so hard her tofu eating brain would collapse.

  • Mike Austin February 9, 2022, 7:35 PM

    Such insanity is easily dealt with. Lock her in jail with water but no food. Wait five days. Eat a Big Mac in front of her. Serve one to her. If she refuses, she will starve to death. If she eats, film her doing so and put the film on the web. Repeat for a month. Or skip all this and exile the weirdo to Uganda.

    Vegetarians are odd ducks, but their neurotic cousins the vegans are bizarre. Like CrossFit aficionados, within three minutes of meeting one he will tell you he’s a vegan. It is really just another cult. Better to be a Moonie than a vegan. At least they eat well.

    • ghostsniper February 10, 2022, 4:50 AM

      Seems almost everybody these days likes to brag about their “causes” and the web provides a large platform for all of them. Good idea Mike. Ban that horrifying scold from all food for a week then offer her meat only. She gets to choose how that works out for her.

      • Mike Austin February 10, 2022, 6:48 AM

        If a conservative doesn’t eat meat, he won’t eat meat. If a liberal doesn’t eat meat, he will insist that no one else does either. These sorts cannot be reached through argument or debate or Logic or Socratic Dialogue. Such folks are only convinced by a rifle butt to the face.

  • MMinWA February 10, 2022, 3:30 AM

    She seems nice

    • Jack February 10, 2022, 9:43 AM

      Oh yeah…a real hit at any gathering, particularly when there is food and drink involved. And men.

      • Mike Austin February 10, 2022, 6:01 PM

        Just who would invite her?

  • enn ess February 10, 2022, 11:38 AM

    It is really surprising she can cobble enough brainpower together to have a heartbeat. By being white we are wassist if we eat meat? But if we’re not white if we eat meat were not? Can anyone splain to me how eating meat can possibly be construed as being wassist? It makes absolutely no effing sense. Wonder how this dim bulb would do on the planets most plentiful resource, Grass. Let’s force her to try it and find out. Animals are put on this earth to transform the energy found in grass into a form of energy we can use, meat. It’s whats for lunch!
    Wave to cows, they taste good!

      For the last ten-odd years, the effective definition of “racist” has been, “anything woke morons don’t like.”

  • CC February 12, 2022, 11:46 AM

    “Try my hamburgers – they’re plant-based.”
    Damn, that’s delicious! what kind of plant is that from?”
    “Meat-packing plant.”
