Watch the dogs and handlers in the background. The dogs have no idea what is expected of them and the handlers are clueless.

Watch when the dogs tackle the dummy, they sniff around for a moment looking for reward treats before starting to chew on the head.

You know that those dogs eat better than most North Korean citizens…

Anybody worried about being attacked by those dogs, just put a wiener in your pocket and throw it when they come toward you. The fight between the handler and the dog over the food should be quite a spectacle.

If I had ever handled a pistol that way in front of my dad, he would have yelled things at me that Lee Ermy can’t even imagine, and that would have been the permanent end of my shooting career.

Are these supposed to be professional soldiers?

I’m convinced this is nothing more than a viral media attempt to get America ready for a remake of the Doberman Gang, only instead of robbing a bank, they’re going to be used as international assassins.

Some of the YouTube comments to that video are awesome:

“If they can put German Shepherds on ICBMs, we are fucked.”

“Dogs? How did we allow them to gain this capability? What are we going to do if they get horses?”

“As long as there are no walls higher than 2 feet tall, those dogs are UNSTOPPABLE. Or, if you have kibble for them.”

“Damn, look how those those dogs are not afraid of very, very small amounts of fire.”

Eh? The SRV is doing quite well these days. I was deeply impressed by what I saw in 2002 & I’ve kept up on the nation since the adoption as a result. Not perfect but far better than any other communist country I’ve seen. Plenty of food, a decent health system & a good education system gets them a long way.

“Sounds like your North Koreans starved to death with dying dogs I feed rice. Real will attract and laughter.”

I heard an interview on NPR today of people who recently returned from North Korea and they say nothing unusual is going on.

Inside North Korea, No Obvious Signs Of Crisis

North Korea’s recent campaign of bluster and escalation seems to be , but visitors to the reclusive country say there are few signs the capital is anywhere near a war footing.

International TV broadcasters have been repeatedly showing tanks trundling through Pyongyang’s Kim Il Sung Square in a demonstration of North Korean national power.

But when Patrick Thornquist, a Chicago teacher visiting the North Korean capital at the end of last week, arrived in the square, he was surprised by what he saw. This iconic square — Pyongyang’s political, military and symbolic heart — was full of children rollerblading and shouting with joy.

Bobby Jindal, the once and future savior of the GOP, went with his silly idea:

[…]

Indeed I envision a new Louisiana where one day the governor of Texas is giving the state of the state complaining about the sons and daughters moving from Houston and Dallas to Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Shreveport, Lafayette and other communities in our state. And we can do that.

And that is one of the reasons that we’ve proposed a bold plan this year. It’s one of the reasons we’ve said our top priority this year is not just to stay still, but to get rid of income taxes in the state of Louisiana.

Now for too many years we’ve talked about competing with Texas and Florida. And I know everyone one of us knows family and friends that have gone to that state - maybe after they’re sold their business, maybe after they’ve retired to go to Florida, maybe when they’re coming out of school they go to Texas.

We’ve have talked about catching up with those states but it is time to do more than talk. The reality is it is time for us to be bold and get rid of these income taxes. Look at what’s going on in our tax code today.

[…]

Now, the silliness comes up next, but I think it is notable here that Jindal is selling the idea of getting rid of income taxes based on, well, Texas does it.

And now we come to the double back-flip while jumping through a burning hoop (just to make this on topic):

It is time to get rid of those income taxes. Look at what’s happening in states without those income taxes. In the last ten years, nine states were responsible for 60 percent of all jobs created in America. Those were the nine states without an income tax.

Over the last ten years, those nine states without an income tax saw their populations grow 60 percent faster than the national average. That is what we want for Louisiana. We want more economic growth. We want more population growth. We want our sons and daughters to stay here. We want others to come here and recognize Louisiana as a land of opportunity.

[…]

See what he did there?

Correlation with causation.

Somehow, the growth in jobs came because of no income tax. And then the population boom. Ergo, LA should drop the income tax, promotes Jindal.

This is of course backwards. Though popular thought sometimes tries to enshrine the idea that people follow jobs, the truth is otherwise. People do follow money, though migrations also happen because people want to get away from somewhere. People also follow fantasies and wild ideas.

Some states certainly have grown more than others, and as a result these growing states have accounted for the majority of “new” jobs.

The migration to the “sun belt” occurred because of many reasons.

What Jindal also leaves out is that some of these states without income taxes are going to have to deal the next few years with some difficult problems related to a growing and aging population - Texas being an example. The pretense that people in those states don’t pay taxes is silly, as sales and property taxes are non-trivial. That states like Texas and Alaska have depended upon taxes form the extraction of natural resources is another thing Jindal overlooks.

Jindal tries to sound like a populist:

Let’s put this another way. You go back to 2011, we actually paid out more than we collected in corporate income taxes. We paid out $76 million more than we collected. That same year we collected about $2,600 on average from a family of four in Louisiana.

So I want you to think about that. We took taxpayer dollars from hardworking families and then turned around and gave that to companies does business in our state. If you’ve got a lawyer or a lobbyist today, you’ve got a loophole.

64 freetoken  Mon, Apr 8, 2013 4:19:15pm

[continuing]


There is some real mathematical strangeness going on here. His ” … on average from a family…” is one of them. I wonder what the median income tax paid from a family of four would be?

Remember the infamous “47%”. Well, truth is LA has plenty of poor families and the median household income in LA is $44k:
quickfacts.census.gov
and the portion of the population below poverty is 18%.

Anyway, if Jindal gets his way the people of LA will have fewer services, their sales or property taxes, or both, will go up, taxes on corporations will not go up meaningfully because the companies will lobby successfully based around the threat of lost jobs, etc.

When are these Americans going to stop buying the spiel that civilization doesn’t cost?

Brad Paisley: ‘Accidental Racist’ song about hardships of showing ‘Southern pride’

Country singer Brad Paisley explained to Entertainment Weekly that his new “Accidental Racist” song illustrated the difficulties of displaying his “Southern pride.”

“I just think art has a responsibility to lead the way, and I don’t know the answers, but I feel like asking the question is the first step, and we’re asking the question in a big way. How do I show my Southern pride? What is offensive to you?” Paisley said.

The country star performed the song with rapper LL Cool J to let “bygones be bygones” in regards to the South’s history of brutal racism, he explained. Paisley said he was “with my audience 100 percent in the Southern pride thing,” which he equated to LL Cool J’s devotion to the New York Yankees. He described the song as an attempt to “reconcile” white and black Americans.

In the song, Paisley laments that his Confederate flag t-shirt is only intended to show he is a “Skynyrd fan” and that the nation is still “fightin’ over yesterday.” He says he feels “caught between southern pride and southern blame.”

I seem to be missing the part where they have something to be proud about.

From this site:

doing a quick estimate of the median household income (from the census), married filing jointly with 2 dependents, one would pay about $820 in LA state income tax.

That’s a far cry from the $2600 mentioned by Jindal.

Could be, though it’s a fucked up way to go about it. I remember when Jong Il passed, their big giveaway to the people was rotten fish. Thing is though, where do they go if the gambit doesn’t work? China and Russia look to be less and less inclined towards bailing them out again, and they’ve burned damned near every bridge they had with SK and the West. Officially scrapping the armistice isn’t a situation they can exactly crawl back from, they own that now. They’ve made it virtually impossible for anybody to willingly negotiate with them ever again.

Here is one of the biggest barking dogs (just to keep on topic…) in Jindal’s speech:

[…]

They’re not getting on a bus or a plane the day after the holidays. We don’t just see them once or twice a year. Yes, we’ve made great progress. Our sons and daughters are beginning to come back.

But we can’t afford to become complacent. We can’t afford to stop pushing forward. That is why it’s so important to get rid of those income taxes. Let’s bring our children home.

Earlier in the speech he lamented losing people moving out of state.

Well… let’s look at a population graph of Louisiana, shall we?

google.com

Looks fairly stead, with a very small growth. Except for that big decline in late 2005. Taxes? Oh….. that.

The entire speech by Jindal is a sham.

He lauds his education reform… you know, the one that hands out state money to private schools that can teach who knows what religious lunacy.

Jindal is doing double-speak with the best accomplished of politicians. Plus, I suspect he is enough of a magical thinker himself to believe some of the malarky.

Priebus was asked the same week that the “autopsy” was released whether the GOP’s “rebranding” would extend to economic policies. His response, in so many words, was that the GOP believes they “won” on those, that the voters agree with them, and they see no reason to change.

So yeah, the “rebranding” amounts to changing the packaging of the shit sandwich they’re trying to sell to voters.

Could be, though it’s a fucked up way to go about it. I remember when Jong Il passed, their big giveaway to the people was rotten fish. Thing is though, where do they go if the gambit doesn’t work? China and Russia look to be less and less inclined towards bailing them out again, and they’ve burned damned near every bridge they had with SK and the West. Officially scrapping the armistice isn’t a situation they can exactly crawl back from, they own that now. They’ve made it virtually impossible for anybody to willingly negotiate with them ever again.

The leader of some South American country, I forget which, shortly after the wars of independence down there basically got 80% of the young men of the country killed in further, pointless, stupid wars.

We could see this again. It is possible that North Korea’s propagandized citizens would actually believe they were in existential danger and ‘defend’ their country by attacking, and force the world to deal with that attack. And laughable as their military is, it’s hard to, y’know, capture rather than kill on the battlefield if they don’t surrender.

Also: I think it’s far more likely that North Korea would lob a nuke at some point than that Iran would, or that Saddam would have. So a nice reminder that all that WMD OMG nonsense about Iraq was going on basically at the same time that North Korea was going nuclear.

I’m surprised no one has commented on the biggest science news of the day:

Penis evolution: Is bigger really better?

Brace yourselves, gentlemen: Not only does size matter when it comes to penis length, but female preference for large genitalia is probably what drove the evolution of your manhood to begin with.

In a study published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers concluded that penis length was just as important as height when it came to sexual attraction among women.

[…]

It’s not a new hypothesis, so I don’t know why writers are acting like this is new news or something…

Anyway, here is the PNAS article:

Penis size interacts with body shape and height to influence male attractiveness

Compelling evidence from many animal taxa indicates that male genitalia are often under postcopulatory sexual selection for characteristics that increase a male’s relative fertilization success. There could, however, also be direct precopulatory female mate choice based on male genital traits. Before clothing, the nonretractable human penis would have been conspicuous to potential mates. This observation has generated suggestions that human penis size partly evolved because of female choice. Here we show, based upon female assessment of digitally projected life-size, computer-generated images, that penis size interacts with body shape and height to determine male sexual attractiveness. Positive linear selection was detected for penis size, but the marginal increase in attractiveness eventually declined with greater penis size (i.e., quadratic selection). Penis size had a stronger effect on attractiveness in taller men than in shorter men. There was a similar increase in the positive effect of penis size on attractiveness with a more masculine body shape (i.e., greater shoulder-to-hip ratio). Surprisingly, larger penis size and greater height had almost equivalent positive effects on male attractiveness. Our results support the hypothesis that female mate choice could have driven the evolution of larger penises in humans. More broadly, our results show that precopulatory sexual selection can play a role in the evolution of genital traits.

The National Geographic story:

[…]

Although body shape was the most important factor in whether or not women rated a male shape as attractive or not, penis size also significantly influenced attraction.

However, the relationship wasn’t necessarily linear—i.e., “as you get a larger and larger penis, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re getting more and more attractive,” Mautz noted. (Read about the barnacle, which has the longest penis relative to body size in the animal kingdom.)

For example, the rate at which women rated the men as attractive fell when flaccid penises were longer than 2.99 inches (7.6 centimeters).

What’s more, height was also a factor: “Tall guys with really large penises ended up being most attractive relative to other figures,” Mautz said.

It’s not totally clear why women prefer bigger penises, but studies have shown that women prefer larger sizes because they can increase sexual satisfaction, Mautz said.

[…]

Hmmm… I wonder if this little bit of science will make it into those private religious schools Jindal has the state of Louisiana funding?

There is some real mathematical strangeness going on here. His ” … on average from a family…” is one of them. I wonder what the median income tax paid from a family of four would be?

Remember the infamous “47%”. Well, truth is LA has plenty of poor families and the median household income in LA is $44k:
quickfacts.census.gov
and the portion of the population below poverty is 18%.

Anyway, if Jindal gets his way the people of LA will have fewer services, their sales or property taxes, or both, will go up, taxes on corporations will not go up meaningfully because the companies will lobby successfully based around the threat of lost jobs, etc.

When are these Americans going to stop buying the spiel that civilization doesn’t cost?

For what it’s worth.

None of the States without personal income taxes had their median income improve from the average of 2008-2009 to the average of 2010-2011.

In fact, Alaska had the biggest decrease.
