Off-Topic / CTC should read Dean Koontz's new novel BREATHLESS
« on: November 27, 2009, 12:01:17 AM »
I recently finished reading BREATHLESS and I  really liked it.I think CTC would particuliarly enjoy pages 300 throgh 304.The mathematician Lamar believes atheistic evolution to be mathematically impossible and his argument regarding this is hard to dispute imho.

TWAS THE NIGHT OF THANKSGIVING,
BUT I JUST COULDN'T SLEEP.
I TRIED COUNTING BACKWARDS,
I TRIED COUNTING SHEEP.

THE LEFTOVERS BECKONED -
THE DARK MEAT AND WHITE,
BUT I FOUGHT THE TEMPTATION
WITH ALL OF MY MIGHT.

TOSSING AND TURNING WITH ANTICIPATION,
THE THOUGHT OF A SNACK BECAME INFATUATION.
SO, I RACED TO THE KITCHEN, FLUNG OPEN THE DOOR,
AND GAZED AT THE FRIDGE, FULL OF GOODIES GALORE.
GOBBLED UP TURKEY AND BUTTERED POTATOES,
PICKLES AND CARROTS, BEANS AND TOMATOES.

I FELT MYSELF SWELLING SO PLUMP AND SO ROUND,
'TIL ALL OF A SUDDEN, I ROSE OFF THE GROUND.
I CRASHED THROUGH THE CEILING, FLOATING INTO THE SKY,
WITH A MOUTHFUL OF PUDDING AND A HANDFUL OF PIE.
BUT, I MANAGED TO YELL AS I SOARED PAST THE TREES....
HAPPY EATING TO ALL - PASS THE CRANBERRIES, PLEASE.
 
 
 
MAY YOUR STUFFING BE TASTY,
MAY YOUR TURKEY BE PLUMP.
MAY YOUR POTATOES 'N GRAVY HAVE NARY A LUMP.
MAY YOUR YAMS BE DELICIOUS.
MAY YOUR PIES TAKE THE PRIZE,
MAY YOUR THANKSGIVING DINNER STAY OFF OF YOUR THIGHS!!

HAPPY   THANKSGIVING   TO  ALL

Off-Topic / Re: 'Significant amount’ of water found on moon

It's official: There's water on the moon.

NASA's LCROSS probe discovered beds of water ice at the lunar south pole when it impacted the moon last month, mission scientists announced Friday.

"Indeed, yes, we found water. And we didn't find just a little bit, we found a significant amount," Anthony Colaprete, LCROSS project scientist and principal investigator from NASA's Ames Research Center at Moffett Field, Calif.

The LCROSS probe impacted the lunar south pole at a crater called Cabeus on Oct. 9. The $79 million spacecraft, preceded by its Centaur rocket stage, hit the lunar surface in an effort to create a debris plume that could be analyzed by scientists for signs of water ice.

Scientists have long suspected that permanently shadowed craters at the south pole of the moon could be cold enough to sustain water frozen at the surface. Water has already been detected on the moon by a NASA-built instrument on board India's now defunct Chandrayaan-1 probe and other spacecraft, though it was in very small amounts and bound to the dirt and dust of the lunar surface.

NASA plans to return astronauts to the moon by 2020 for extended missions on the lunar surface. Finding usable amounts of ice on the moon would be a boon for that effort since it could be a vital local resource to support a lunar base.

The impact was observed by LCROSS's sister spacecraft, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, as well as other space and ground-based telescopes.

The debris plume from the impacts was not seen right away and was only revealed a week after the impact, when mission scientists had had time to comb through the probe's data.

NASA launched LCROSS — short for Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite — and LRO in June.
Maybe they hit an alien outhouse. :D

Not a "nutjob" but an Islamic jihadist. I have to wonder how much influence political correctness had to do with being unable or unwilling to call him what he was and deal with it. That being said hindsight is 20/20. I'm sure they could have identified him earlier and hopefully they will do a much better job in the future but it's easy to identify him looking back at the many experiences that gave a clue.
Oblasma can't even get it correct now.  During his memorial speech, he never once referred to the shooting as a terrorist attack.  Maybe he hasn't seen enough evidence yet to make up his mind.   :roll:

Maybe because the people doing the investigation have not called it a terrorist attack yet.  I seem to recall a few month ago you and others correctly skewered the President for weighing in on an ongoing investigation before knowing all the facts.  Shouldn't that same standard apply now?

This was not a suicide attack.  The killer is going to stand trial.  Why give the defense the claim that he was denied the right to a fair trial, because of statements made by the President.  I'd be willing to bet that the speech yesterday was vetted by the Justice Department and US Military before it was delivered.


Obama is being prudent by not labeling this a terrorist attack... yet.  However he did not show the same prudence when it came to him prudence when assessing the DCPD when his professor friend was in an altercation, before Obama knew all the facts.

HMMM? I WONDER WHY?
http://loyaltoliberty.blogspot.com/2009 ... icate.html This morning, in an article by Lt. Colonel Allen B. West (US Army, ret.) about the Ft. Hood terrorist attack, a phrase arrested my attention: "The Saudis are not our friends and any American political figure who believes such is delusional." It took my mind back to the days when I was hosting a commentary show on MSNBC. I remember on several occasions presenting thoughts based on the theme, 'the Saudis are not our friends.' (Not long after came the events that led to the demise of the show.) And that was before the current corrupt Party system produced an election outcome allowing someone to occupy the Oval Office who could not suppress the urge to do public obeisance to the Saudi Monarch.

In his comments Lt. Col. West accurately assesses the Saudi role in developing the cadre of Islamic fundamentalists from whose ranks Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups recruit their dedicated assassins. "Saudi Arabia is sponsoring radical Imams who enter into our prisons and convert young men into a virulent Wahabbist ideology…They are sponsoring textbooks which present Islamic centric revisionist history in our schools."

Now it appears that the preparation and recruitment of Islamic jihad kamikazes has been successfully extended into the ranks of our military, endangering the lives of our personnel on and off the battlefield (as well as the lives of their dependents.) As an "Army brat" I spent the bulk of my early years living on one Army base or another. Though it was part of my father's profession to risk his life for the country, as a dependent I don't recall feeling that my life was at risk on base for even one moment the whole time I was growing up. Can the children of our troops today say the same?

Though not on the scale of the events of 9/11, the attack at Ft. Hood sharply conveys the same message those attacks were meant to convey- the terrorists can get past all our defenses to take people out in the very circumstances where life ought to be most secure. Indeed, the message of Ft. Hood is intended to go further, casting doubt on the reliability of all the instruments we use to defend the nation's security.

It is (tragically?) ironic that as we consider that message, the man who claims to be Commander-in-Chief seems more concerned with protecting the assailant from the bad opinion of the nation he assaulted than with protecting the nation and its warriors from future such attacks. I'm sure Obama thinks we shouldn't make too much of the fact that Major Nidal Malik Hasan attended a mosque

"controlled by the radical Muslim Brotherhood, a Saudi-funded worldwide jihadist movement which controls many of the mosques in America….Before attending Muslim Community Center, Hasan worshiped with his mother at the ultra-radical Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic center in Falls Church, Va. While there he worshiped alongside some of the hijackers who attacked the Pentagon on 9/11. He reportedly came under the spell of the mosque's imam Anwar al-Awlaki, who ministered privately to the hijackers."

After all, why assume that attending a hate-filled mosque had a bad influence on Hasan when attending Jeremiah Wright's hate-filled church left Obama filled with love and hope, all primed for the Nobel Peace prize? Why assume that imbibing the teachings of a radical imam affected Hasan's actions when we are supposed to go along with the notion that, despite his many years of admiring and studying radical socialists and communists only fringe loonies would suggest Obama is one of them?

Does the sacrifice of truth involved in treating Obama as though he were just another true blue American politico mean that we must close our eyes to facts on which the physical security, indeed the very survival of our country may depend? Will the political cowardice that refuses to see and answer the many questions about his background also refuse to seek answers about the questionable backgrounds of others who, like him, are in a position to do our nation grievous harm?

Polls / Re: Major Hasan

Here's what a Illinois Democrat thinks:     http://www.publiusforum.com/2009/11/11/ ... -massacre/                                                                By Warner Todd Huston
Just like an unprincipled, self-interested, tin-eared politician, Mayor Richard Daley decided to use the massacre at Fort Hood to flog his prosaic anti-gun message in Chicago.
When asked if Islam had anything at all to do with the Fort Hood massacre and if Muslims might expect some sort of backlash or anti-Islamic movement because of Nidal Hasan’s evil act of terror, Daley replied:

“Every day in society people are getting killed, unfortunately. America loves guns, we love guns to a point that we see the devastation on a daily basis. You don’t blame a group, you don’t blame a society… i,i,immigrant community because of actions of one group, uh one individual, you cannot say that.”


So, guns caused the Fort Hood massacre? Of course, this absurd claim does not square with the Major Hasan’s history of radical Islamism, but, hey, if you can use someone else’s “tragedy” to push your political message… what the heck, eh?So, not only was Daley his usually inarticulate self, but he found himself not above using this crime to push his own particular political message; his anti-gun zealotry.

But Daley is not unlike every other Democrat and leftist in America who are busy burying their heads in the sand and pretending radical Islam is either incidental or even non-existent.
Still, let’s take Daley’s concept and explore it. Did India’s “love of guns” cause the astonishing terrorist attacks in Mumbai? Maybe England’s “love of bombs” caused the London bombing? Or maybe Spain’s “love of wrecking trains” caused he attacks in Madrid in 2004?
And then there is the other absurd disconnect evidenced by Daley’s half sentient thinking. Is Mayor Daley proposing that a military base doesn’t have good enough gun control? And can we review just how Nidal Hasan was stopped… by a gun wielded and brave female police sergeant? A gun stopped Hasan if we follow Daley’s sparse logic.
Of course, the truth of the matte is that guns had nothing at all to do with the cause of this massacre. The cause was the tenets of radical Islam espoused by a man named Nidal Hasan. The guns did nothing of themselves. They are but tools. It is people that kill, not guns.
But if we wanted sense, logic and clear thinking we wouldn’t go to Mayor Daley or a Democrat.

When the "Beltway Sniper" got arrested I posted something regarding his then only "alleged" jihadist beliefs and I was reviled as a "nutjob" etc on the other forum. Of course this proved to be the actual situation when it went to court.This type of event will continue to occur until the non terrorist muslims in the USA start informing on the jihadist members of their own community and the PC police develop some common-sense.I'm not going to hold my breath. :roll:

Vise,I'm a libertarian .If someone wants to do that it's OK by me. I don't think many folks criticized much that PISTOL PETE did to his face.I also think some rich Hollywood mogul  needs to make a movie about Frank"Pistol Pete" Eaton's life. Mel Gibson might enjoy making the movie.My Dad got to meet Pistol Pete.I bet you would have enjoyed meeting someone like him too. Where's that time machine we're going to need?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Eaton


LOL... I didnt mean the real Eaton.
I was trying to make a point.The "Pistol Pete" mascot is based on a real heroic personality.Frank Eaton was a real "COWBOY". Cowboy's waded through cowflop on a near daily basis,branded cattle,broke broncs,crossed rivers on horseback,fought rustlers and Indians,emasculated male cattle and often they chewed tobacco.It was all in a day's work.My dad met Frank Eaton and he states he was a real character. ;-)

They knew a year and a half ago this guy was a nutjob and did nothing.
There needs to be an effective process to remove bad apples from the military before something like this happens. The procedures need to not just apply to Muslims either, if a servicemen makes comments supporting the actions in the OKC bombings or any similar atrocity they should be 'red flagged' .IMHO the P.C. police have prevented the needed establishment of the procedures needed to remove  such potential 'bad apples'.The PC police are always waiting to sue or jump on anyone who demnostrates any common sense.They're always ready to scream  RACISM or Discrimination and lives are lost as a result.

I'll root for Fedor in their first fight.I'm impressed by Fedor's character. He a humble Christian person from what I've seen.I'm a fan of Lesnar also. He's younger and his time will come eventually.
