Re: Top 10 Movie Troops

Don't let the title mislead you; this isn't some one-page-at-a-time click-bait. Twenty movies are featured on the single page, with lots of youtube clips to view, enjoy, and discuss.

Re: GPRO and the market in general

The aging of the federal work force is a seriously under reported problem. The professional ranks are HEAVILY geezer laden, and the institutional knowledge resides with them. You can't just replace those people with fully qualified newbies. So, [more]

Re: 'Farthest thing from liberal is libertarian'

I had not considered the idea that libertarians believe government is evil and most science is funded by government therefore science is evil. If libertarians do not actually believe this, they should speak up.

Re: The Hypocrisy of Deadly Force

A police force is supposed to interpose itself into conflicts among non-combatants, not leave them be. If you're in the military, you're not there to resolve intra-civilian arguments or enforce domestic laws - you can mostly leave non-combatants [more]
