Boeing's Airborne Laser begins weapon flight tests

Boeing Co (BA.N) said on Friday it has begun flight tests of its Airborne Laser, designed to zap missiles soon after they are launched, with the full weapons system on the aircraft.

The aerospace and defense manufacturer said a functional check flight was completed on April 21 at Edwards Air Force Base in California with the beam and fire control systems and the high-energy laser onboard.

Gee, just in time to be part of the proposed defense budget cuts.

re: #27 pre-Boomer Marine brat

But since a "pig" pun-thread is starting, you're gonna wind up in hock.

As ham sandwiches go, it was perfection. A thick slab of ham, a fresh bun, crisp lettuce and plenty of expensive, light brown, gourmet mustard. The corners of my jaw aching in anticipation, I carried it to the picnic table in our backyard, picked it up with both hands but was stopped by my wife suddenly at my side.

"Hold Johnny (our six-week-old son) while I get my sandwich," she said.

I had him balanced between my left elbow and shoulder and was reaching again for the ham sandwich when I noticed a streak of mustard on my fingers. I love mustard. I had no napkin. I licked it off. It was not mustard!

No man ever put a baby down faster. It was the first and only time I have sprinted with my tongue protruding. With a washcloth in each hand I did the sort of routine shoeshine boys do, only I did it on my tongue.

Later (after she stopped crying from laughing so hard) my wife said, "Now you know why they call that mustard 'Poupon.'"

So...I was at the in-laws yesterday. Woman comes up and says she is from the Census. My other half started talking to her about the street address. I, being a smartass, had to chime in: "So, do you work for the Census Bureau or ACORN?" She looks at me and stammers, "I am just mapping the streets, it is for the Census." i said "I understand, I am just curious as to who will be using any information given to you and how it will be used. Seeing as how the Obama administration wants to take over the census, I am just a little nervous." Needless to say, everyone on the porch with me turned their heads and tried not to LOL.

No, didn't hear that. Monday's volume was pretty low so there wasn't any panic or anything.

All 19 banks will "pass" the farce stress test. There's going to be a lot of criminal insider trading during the results "blackout". Since the banks already know the "results" it's also a violation of securities law that they're being forced to withhold this information from their shareholders.

Here's an interesting question for the lizards out there. When Odysseus returns home again, he meets and teams up with a swineherd, whom Homer lauds in the most insanely over-the-top manner.

Do you think that the withdrawal of the gods from the Classical world necessarily leads to a greater kinship between people and swine, and kingship and swineherding? Inquiring Straussians want to know!

I mean, Euameus is the ONLY person addressed directly, in the second person, in the whole of the epic. It's weird, and I can't help thinking it's intentional.

I would think that most of that stuff would be illegal in Germany. Not sure how the laws on Nazi era stuff work over there.

It is illegal to display or sell Nazi symbols. (Specifically anything showing the swastika.) I'm not sure about books.

Similar laws re the hakenkreuzer exist in several other Western European countries. One odd side effect of this is that model kits of WWII Luftwaffe aircraft, AFVs, etc., may not have the "twisted cross" on their boxart, or on the decal sheets that come with the kit.

Fortunately, several American "aftermarket" decal makers, notably SuperScale, make sheets of nothing but such markings in various sizes. (Before anyone freaks, they also make sheets of nothing but Japanese Hinomarus, RAF roundels, U.S. stars and "stars and bars", etc.)

This isn't a recent "P.C." thing, either. I started buying aftermarket sheets of the crooked crosses made in England by HisAirDec about the time I started building WWII airplane models seriously. Which was when I was still in junior high.

114 quickjustice  Sat, Apr 25, 2009 2:48:08pm

As a bankruptcy lawyer, I've been bothered by the news that the U.S. Treasury Department is putting Chrysler Corporation into bankruptcy. The bankruptcy reorganization statute is written assuming conventional corporate governance, with management supervised by a board of directors representing the shareholders who have voted them in. It's also written assuming that the government may become involved as a creditor owed taxes, for example, but never as management.

Labor is the employees who work for the corporation. They also may be creditors if their salaries aren't paid, for example, or their pension plans are rejected, but they don't get special treatment beyond what the statute itself provides.

What's happened in the Chrysler case is that the government now is management, and the government is exercising management's discretionary powers within Chapter 11 to determine how labor is treated, and whether a merger with Fiat is desirable, among other things. Discretion is important, because management traditionally exercises discretion to benefit the corporation, and eventually, the shareholders. They have a fiduciary duty to do so under the law. That's all been hot-wired here by the Obama Adminstration's Treasury Department to get an outcome the statute never contemplated.

It's not just a change in degree. It's a fundamental change in kind, in corporate governance itself, and in the property rights and priorities created by the statute. Business expectations are created by laws. Risks are calculated, in part, by laws. And Treasury has completely distorted all these expectations without blinking an eye. In economic terms, this sort of government meddling in the affairs of large corporations to create winners and losers is "fascist", but it's also the destruction of long-settled expectations based upon the rule of law. It may well be unconstitutional.

And we're backing into this profound shift to fascist government intervention without debate, without reflection, justified by an alleged "emergency" crisis, and to protect a favored special interest, the labor unions in a way the law, and the fiduciary duties to shareholders and creditors it creates, never contemplated.

The laws of economics will govern the eventual failure of these strategies, and they've never before succeeded. It's as if our federal government is intent on deliberate employing economic strategies that are doomed in a futile effort to protect special interests. Another word for that is "suicide".

Chrysler asked for this government bailout, so its managers and labor unions also share the blame for the current situation. But the existence of flawed capitalists don't mean that capitalism itself is flawed. Look for litigation over these strategies after they've all failed.

I'm reposting this because my earlier links were flawed:

Citizens' movement per Cologne (Pro-Koln)

The association was launched on 5 June 1996 in Cologne-Dünnwald as an offshoot of the German League for People and Homeland (DLVH) by former members of the Republican Party was founded. Among the founding members include the publisher Manfred Rouhs and Attorney Markus Beisicht. Together with other former members of REP, including Harald Neubauer and Karl Richter, were Rouhs and Beisicht already in the founding of the DLVH been involved in the 1991 to 1993 in the Group's strength in the Cologne city council was represented.

I would think "German League for People and Homeland" would be enough of a give away as to what sort of political party DLVH is, but just in case:

The DLVH was founded in 1991 as a party. Prominent was a founding member of the former NPD federal chairman Martin Mussgnug.

Note this about the DLVH's founder:

The father of Martin Mussgnug was Hans Mussgnug, 1944-1945 extrabudgetary Professor of Surgery at the University of Heidelberg, Nazi Party member from 1937 and leader of the squad Saturday.

And I'm supposed to take rouhs at his jihad watch published word he's not related to these people? Suuuure.

Probably the most authoritative book on the subject, and also oddly enough one of the least expensive, is Hitler Youth; The Duped Generation by Prof. H. W. Koch, from the old Ballantine Illustrated History of the Violent Century series, published in 1972. Professor Koch was at the time Lecturer in Modern History at the University of York. He was also a former member of the Hitlerjugend himself, so he spoke with some authority on exactly what the organization did to German children, why, and how it did it.

Who says it's funny at all? At this stage, though, it's too early to tell what, if anything, it is.

I mean, is Mexico over-reacting, or is their public health infrastructure so fragile that these elaborate measures are necessary to keep it from sweeping through their population, or is it really THAT dangerous?

Stateside authorities don't seem alarmed, which could be because it's too early to know, or they don't want to spread panic, or because a comparatively modern health care system can be expected to handle it.

Some caller disagree, and think it could be a pre-text for states of emergency and martial law, and Alex is generous enough to concede there might be something to it.

Did German kids have a choice about joining this any more than Soviet kids had to join the young Oktobrists or young Cubans have to join Fidel's juventud revolucionaria?

In a dictatorship, do poor or any income parents really have a choice over what happens to their children if the government raises tells you what you must do?

Is there such a thing as religious objectors, or conscientious objectors, in a totalitarian country?

I remember Russians called "refuseniks".

In order;

It was originally voluntary. It became compulsory after Hitler became Reichschancellor.

Yes, there can be "conscientious objectors". They tend to end up in camps alongside other people the regime' doesn't approve of.

As for "refuseniks", the USSR had several ways of dealing with them, ranging from "internal exile" in "closed cities" like Gorky, to the gulags for the more "dangerous" (to the regime', that is) individuals. Alexander Solzhenitsyn wrote an entire book on that subject, The Gulag Archipelago, based on (very painful) personal experience.

Big difference between 1918 and now with pandemics is air travel. Get a bug with a few days incubation rate and *BANG*, multiple pockets of infection. The swine flu is a little thing to be worried about, so far it's best to keep a cool head here.

Sure, but that's just the thing I'm counting on to protect us!

Flu virus is always with us, mutating and spreading, looking for that great new killer combo. That same transportation system makes us pretty much homogenous with exposure to all the precursors. I'd say that makes it an order of magnitude harder for the mutations to really surprise us.

The Federation developed an advanced "phased" cloaking system in the 2350s that proved to be more trouble than it was worth in addition to violating the Treaty of Algeron.

I disregard most of ST: Enterprise's use of the Romulans, as it violates too many previously-established facts in the timeline.

Only photorps, which are basically guided missiles. To me, the most hilarious line was when Uhura suggested using a sensor jury-rigged on a torp to home in on the Klingon scout's exhaust. The Federation Star Fleet apparently does not have anything equivalent to a Sidewinder in its inventory in the 23rd Century.

IF a counter jihadist blogger supports Israel in word and deed., yet has some questionable "associations" (e.g. Jihad watch, Gates of Vienna) is it really fair to consider them Nazis in the pure sense of the word. It seems to me that Nazis have no support for Israel and buy into the Islamic annihilationist position....or is it your position that this is just a smokescreen concealing their jew hatred?

Speaking of the Swine....flu

The first case was seen in Mexico on April 13. The outbreak coincided with the President Barack Obama’s trip to Mexico City on April 16. Obama was received at Mexico’s anthropology museum in Mexico City by Felipe Solis, a distinguished archeologist who died the following day from symptoms similar to flu, Reforma newspaper reported. The newspaper didn’t confirm if Solis had swine flu or not.

Swine Flu update as of 6 PM Eastern

Cases detected in New York City and in Kansas.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization is "Concerned" and they have stated that this is "a public health emergency of international concern." - but they won't raise the pandemic threat level. Currently it is at Level 3, it SHOULD be at Level 5. They won't raise it.

Level 4 is "significant spread with a novel flu virus." HELLO?!?!? Look at the reports!

CDC says they'll do what they need to do regardless of what WHO says the threat level is. (How about close the freakin' border? - SteveC)

Please 'splain to me one (1) thing. Used to be a HUGE Clancy fan. For what it is worth, Flight 93 would have been HIS textbook "Bomb the Capitol" suicide flight were it NOT for the passengers - YET - in 2004, he was a Kerry backer, what gives with Clancy?

Answer: Only one, but the extra red shirt will die in the attempt.

Saw a poster with Trek's "Big Three" and the usual Security Guard. Caption read "Kirk, Spock, Dr. McCoy and Ensign Ricky just beamed down to the planet. Guess which one of them won't be beaming back?"

I looked at your website and it struck me so funny that pipes are for sale.

It has to be Spock. He fell in love with a logic computer.

That was my guess, if he could get Nurse Chapel away from sickbay. It was only logical that those two get together!

Funny? hey, I'll sell anything that's legal.

Neat stuff, the meerschaum, but really too nice to use. More for collecting.

The clay ones? Well, I've got one of those myself.

The brass ones from China, I've got a sample from a new supplier coming next month.

Got interested in pipes some time ago, and recently managed to reconnect with a few people in Turkey, and from there, things just sort of morphed.

Still, most business is in jade; always has been.

It is the only logical thing that makes sense.

I figure it can't hurt to diversify my offerings; jade is a slow but steady mover, and these days, why not?

I can't explain it, because I wasn't aware of it. Clancy also wasn't the first to use that particular plot device, anymore than Stephen Coonts was when he used it almost at the same time in his novel Storming Heaven. That dubious distinction goes to Janet and Chris Morris, in a near-future SF novel titled The Forty-Minute War, published in 1984. Their version, a chartered 747 freighter, had an improvised A-bomb on board... and was aimed at the Capitol Building.

re: #351 ggt

I've seen most of Clancy not read him. I thoroughly enjoyed the John Ringo novel. More like that, please.

I have pretty much all of Ringo's books. The Kildar and Prince Roger series being my favorites.

Drudge is linking to a Bloomberg report about Obamas visit to Mexico City as the flu outbreak was starting and possible exposure Obama may have had.

Just saw that actress Bea Arthur ("Maude", from the 70's television series) has died.

RIP.
