  • This group needs to be reigned in

    Posted on July 20th, 2022 cwmoore No comments

    Please read the book : Zero Fail by Carol Leonnig:


    The U.S. Secret Service was described as an agency in crisis on Thursday after reports that the agency deleted text messages from Jan. 6 and the day before.

    MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell reported, “the breaking news of the night, the news is that the secret service has destroyed evidence that is essential to the investigation of the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.”

    “Let me repeat that,” he continued. “Yes, the Secret Service has deliberately destroyed evidence involving the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. That was revealed by the inspector general of the Department of Homeland Security, which has jurisdiction over the Secret Service.”

    “The most important Secret Service text messages since the invention of text messaging, they were deliberately erased by the Secret Service, according to the inspector general,” O’Donnell said.

    I you read the book I referenced above then you will see why they need to be reigned in and reduced in size back to the original intent of protecting the President ( and perhaps his immediate family ).

  • Rogue waves

    Rogue waves—enigmatic giants of the sea—were thought to be caused by two different mechanisms. But a new idea that borrows from the hinterlands of probability theory has the potential to predict them all.

    Rogue waves long lived only as sailor lore. Hard evidence of their existence has come only in the past few decades. Credit: Andreas Rocha for Quanta Magazine.

    Mariners have known for centuries what researchers have documented only in recent decades: The ocean is a far more dangerous place than common sense would suggest. Data-driven researchers long struggled to square sailors’ tales of monstrous “rogue” waves with the expectation that wave heights vary like human heights — clustering around an average with a few outliers dotting the thin tails of a bell curve. Sure, you might get a wave twice as tall as its neighbors in theory, but you’d have to watch the seas for a long time.

    If you are a sailor read this for sure:


  • The Super Patriot

    Still true I think, except the Very Rich, to whom the Super Patriot kawtaws and genuflects in humble adoration.

    May be an image of text that says 'From MAD Magazine 1968 See the Super Patriot. Hear him preach how he loves his country. Hear him preach how he hates "Liberals". And "Moderates". .and "Intellectuals" And "Activists". and "Pacifists".. And "Minority Groups". "Aliens"... And "Unions". ...and and "Teenagers" And the "Very Rích" and the "Very Poor". And "People With Foreign-Sounding Names". Now you know what Super Patriot is. He's someone who loves his country While hating 93% of the people who live in it.'

    Thanks to the Arizona contingent for providing the old MAD picture via Facebook.
