Which means a special edition of 40k trivia:

Zombie Plague/Curse of Unbelief

The Zombie Plague, also called the Curse of Unbelief, is a deadly viral infection that was spawned by the Forces of Chaos and led to the creation of hordes of infectious, undead zombies that threatened billions of people on many Imperial worlds near the Eye of Terror in the Segmentum Obscurus. The first recorded incidence of the Zombie Plague in the 41st Millennium came in 757.M41 on the world of Hydra Minoris. A quarantine was imposed by the Imperial Navy, trapping 23 billion uninfected people alongside a rising tide of hungry and mindless undead.

Not truly surprising that the Imperium can’t come up with a ‘Faith’ version of that virus. It was created by the Diabolical action of Nurgle himself. You can’t expect to be able to turn the invention of a Chaos God to an end that said god does not wish.

Any attempt to use to power of Chaos for the good of the Imperium is doomed to failure, and only the most heretical or blind would think they could get away with it.

The desire to do right for the Emperor is strong enough to induce blindness, which is why some adepts keep trying. Understandable, given how the Emperor suffered and still does suffer for their sake (and the sake of all Mankind).

That we’re currently using drones is incidental. Drones are merely weapons delivery systems which can be replaced with more conventional systems with other forms of air power, ground troops, special forces, etc.

Anwar al-Aulaqi knew the danger he faced when he decided to become a terrorist. Part of his principles including knowing that some day he would or could become martyred. He sealed his own fate not the DOJ, CIA, and the White House. When you play with fire, you’re going to get burned.

Anwar al-Aulaqi was on his way to becoming the next Osama bin Laden. One has to ask themselves, if we were to prevent the next 9/11 by executing a man such Anwar al-Aulaqi, was it worth the price? Would we be asking these same questions, ex post facto, had Osama bin Laden been executed in such a manner?

Former exec. of South Carolina GOP defends mocking Trayvon Martin’s death

Kincannon told HuffPost Live that mocking the death of Trayvon Martin and “the poors” during Hurricane Katrina was just “high-profile trolling.” He said he didn’t understand why the killing of Trayvon was political and insisted joking about the Florida teen’s demise was fair because of all the people who said “insensitive things” about his killer, George Zimmerman.

“I think it is funny to make jokes that enlighten people on political problems,” Kincannon said. He added the purpose of satire “sometimes is to offend people, to teach a lesson.”

“I think it is time for a conversation in this country about why a conservative isn’t allowed to state an opinion that other people happen to disagree with, without having death threats and being threatened with all kinds of various ridiculous things,” he continued. “This is real problem we have. People talk about political discourse in this country — you might think what I said was tasteless, you’re welcome to. But should I get death threats as a result of it?”

SATIRE!

Like saying Kincannon orally molests livestock on a weekly basis.

Its just satire, nothing to get work up about.

Kind of deliberately misses the point that bin Laden wasn’t a citizen. Maybe the circumstances in which one loses their citizenship shouldn’t be limited the way they are by allegiance to another state engaged in hostilities against the US, but instead expanded to include NGOs. Regardless the killing was totally extrajudicial, we didn’t even try to strip al-Aulaqi of his citizenship first, which if not frightening on it’s face should at least prompt questions about how and where future administrations might apply the precedent.

Not the Onion

How Eric Cantor Is Trying to Soften the Republican Party

Eric Cantor grabs a plastic dinosaur from the pile of toys in front of 1-year-old Mekhi Scott, taps the beast on the table and growls, “RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!” Mekhi jumps — he’s startled at first — and smiles.

“You like dinosaurs?” coos Cantor, the House majority leader and one of the highest-ranking Republicans in the country. “So do I.”

In his speech Tuesday at the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think-tank, Cantor plans to ask Congress to require universities to warn students when their academic majors lack employment opportunities; to repeal the tax on medical devices, a provision of Obama’s health care overhaul; and to shift spending from political sciences to “hard” sciences such as cancer research.

One thing he won’t do is moderate Republican policies. Cantor is talking about a change in tone, not ideology, which begs the question: With a demographic tide threatening to crush the modern GOP, is it enough to just tweak talking points?

43 Sol Berdinowitz  Tue, Feb 5, 2013 12:14:21am

I agree that we need a higher education system that prepares its graduates for some sort of employment and does not just leave them saddled with debt.

I also agree that we need to do more in teaching science and math, but that would involve teaching evolution as the basis of all biological sciences and modern medicine, as well as training and paying our teachers a lot better than we do or would be doing if we let GOP politicians dismantle collective bargaining for public servants.

And I like dinosaurs.

No, there was no legislation. It’s true that Bush started the campaign of targeted killing of known Al Qaeda terrorists, but never directed it at a citizen. The Justice Department Memo prepared to justify the killing of Anwar Al-Awlaki was written in 2010. The Bush administration drafted memos justifying torture and plenty of other bullshit, but targeting citizens for extrajudicial killing isn’t part of their legacy.

Speaking of which, there was some science news yesterday regarding Neanderthals… and the AP story too great license with it, directly stating what the actual publication and even the press release did not.

Par for the course… but when I read comments, on general news sites, to the AP story of yesterday it becomes all too obvious that the commenters are unable, or more likely unwilling, to differentiate between what is true and what is not.

A mostly unhatched hatchling begging for tech help, please!

I tend to use my Kindle Fire (1st generation) for most of the LGF reading that I do. I’m having an issue recently where the browser shuts down on me. It gives a message about a script causing the browser error.

In the past I had trouble once a thread had more than 350 or 400 posts in it, and then that got better for a while. Now it isn’t only long threads that cause the browser to shut down but regular ones too. For example, I tried to read through the “Superb Owl” thread, and after it crashing the browser 8 times I gave up. I assumed the thread was too long, so I tried the next post (the Overnight Video: Stardust one) and that crashed a bunch of times, too. The next thread (Bobby Jindal) worked fine.

Any ideas on what is going on? I typically only use my Kindle for email, facebook, and LGF. I have not had the issue with email or FB.

Hopefully a passing police officer will wing them so they drop their weapon. When they complain that they were only there to protect the children, they should be mocked mercilessly for acting like vigilante yahoos fantasizing about their neighborhood turning into a scene from a Tarantino movie. After that, medical attention can be called for, but only if they’re incapable of dragging themselves to a bus stop.

It’s nothing more than trying to legally justify shooting black people. I can’t see any other actual reason behind it, and almost every bad story I’ve heard about it is that exact issue - white person (or whateverTF Zimmerman is) doesn’t like something scary black person is doing, and they purposefully start trouble because they know they’ll have the law behind them (not to mention the police aren’t exactly giving an extra shit if it’s a white shooting a black).

No, it’s the One True Link.

The Truth About Aspartame and Barack Obama

Aspartame helped Barack Obama achieve a meteoric rise to power.

The FBI encourages sexual deviancy among children by exposing them to aspartame.

The FBI has been secretly exploring possible applications of aspartame for government profit.

Corporate interests are preventing us from getting the truth out.

Polling organizations have found that many people do not know that Barack Obama openly admits to supporting lobbyists with strong connections to the production of aspartame.

Most people won’t know about this until it’s too late.

The solution is clear: buy a gun.

He doesn’t understand it because, as someone born into his citizenship, he takes it for granted. Why should he consider it something special if just being born in America automatically makes you a citizen? The only time he cares about that is when the people being born are from the “wrong” wombs. Then citizenship is something great and wonderful…for the folks he approves of.

Cue the cries of “ZOMG OBUMMER OPPRESSING SPEECH!”

Figures.
See, this is what likely got his ass suspended,

“I don’t believe in queers,’’ he said. “I don’t like queers. I don’t hate them as a person, but what they do is wrong and an abomination against God.’’

Dear Nutter,

The government also has tanks, drones, nukes, aircraft carriers, fighter jets, and a whole host of weapons you’re not entitled to.

You will never have equal firepower to the US government. Ever. Get that fantasy out of your head now.

No love,
Me

One should ask him how well the nutter in Alabama and his 2nd Amendment fared against law enforcement equipped with automatic weapons, breaching charges, flashbangs, body armor, and then wonder how well he’s gonna fare with his Bushmaster, a flannel shirt, and body odor?

These people take the Reaganism that “government is not the solution, it is the problem” one step further: government is not the problem, it is THE ENEMY. We have to be prepared to fight it, as the day is approaching when Obama is going to make his move.

They sure whine about it enough without realizing how much it actually takes care of them. Especially considering how many of them are already on some sort of government assistance, or work for either a government entity or a subcontractor for the government.

You can lead these people to facts, but you can’t make them think.

So many of these wanna-be Rambos are the armchair generals who were slapping each other on the back and cheering loudly when Dubya was “bringing democracy” to Afghanistan and Iraq. The same ones who, in their younger days, were criticizing Carter for killing the very same weapon systems that they now worry might roll up on their front lawn.

Nothing seems to hurt a wingnut more than to see one of their idols turn out to be a real human being.

Well, you know I've been here many times, and only certain hours of the day when I'm here am I asleep; the rest of the time I'm actually awake. -- I have a filler on a dat with zappa being interrogated by a couple of swedish fans/state officers(who knows)...in which they are arguing over the pornographic contents of his work. he tells them he has been spying on them, and claims that their porno industry is bigger than that of the US. it's pretty funny. btw-this is from thew '88 tour.
