Right, but that’s the point and what I was alluding to. That tiny third district being by itself is meant to prevent the Dem population there from overriding Republican votes in the larger and more… irregular rural districts.

This is how the best investigations are run. By the time you get to trial, you don’t need the testimony from the perp or any accomplices; you already have everything you need to put them away. You’re just hoping they incriminate themselves or perjure themselves.

Picking up from downstairs:

Now THAT is one epic way to be a badass.

And he was a Tennessean…good or bad, we have turned out some bonafide, certified, home-grown badasses and crazy sonsabitches that just DGAF here.

Edmonds, along with other inexperienced troops, arrived in the combat zone December 1944, with the 106th Infantry Division, arriving only five days before Germany launched a massive counteroffensive, the Battle of the Bulge. During the battle, on December 19, 1944, Edmonds was captured and sent to a German prisoner-of-war (POW) camp: Stalag IX-B. Shortly thereafter, he was transferred, with other enlisted personnel, to another POW camp near Ziegenhain, Germany: Stalag IX-A. As the senior noncommissioned officer at the new camp, Master Sergeant Edmonds was responsible for the camp’s 1,275 American POWs.[1][3][4][6]

On their first day in Stalag IX-A, January 27, 1945—as Germany’s defeat was clearly approaching—Commandant Siegmann ordered Edmonds to tell only the Jewish-American soldiers to present themselves at the next morning’s assembly so they could be separated from the other prisoners.[1][3][8][4][6]

Instead, Edmonds ordered all 1,275 POWs to assemble outside their barracks. The German commandant rushed up to Edmonds in a fury, placed his pistol against Edmonds’s head and demanded that he identify the Jewish soldiers under his command. Instead, Edmonds responded, “We are all Jews here,” and told the commandant that if he wanted to shoot the Jews he would have to shoot all of the prisoners. He then warned the commandant that if he harmed any of Edmonds’ men, the commandant would be prosecuted for war crimes after the conflict ended—since the Geneva Conventions required prisoners to give only their name, rank, and serial number; religion was not required. The commandant backed down.[1][3][8][4][6]

Edmonds’ actions are credited with saving up to 300 Jewish-American soldiers from possible death.[1][3][8][4][6]

After 100 days of captivity, Edmonds returned home after the war, but kept the event at the POW camp to himself.[1][3][8][4][9]

The new map takes Franklin County out of the 6th District and places it into the first. Franklin County/State Capital of Frankfort does have a relatively(for Kentucky) sizeable black population. Franklin County does vote more Democratic than many counties. The 6th District is/was a close 50/50 D/R split. This gerrymander protects Republican Andy Barr, current 6th District Rep.

He’s had several other rallies, but they’ve been poorly attended, even by his standards. In fact, I believe at a recent one, some of the upper-deckers were “promoted” to ringside seats by his handlers so he wouldn’t get upset that the crowd didn’t fill the arena like they promised.

Do these idiots realize that most military equipment, outside of the “stuff with guns” they fantasize about being able to own privately, is just civilian equipment with armor bolted on? Like, literally, most military contractors take one of their existing designs, add whatever additional shit the military demands as far as redundancy and resiliency, and then sell it to them at an impressive markup.

It looks like Trump is going to have his shindig at the “Country Thunder” festival grounds down in Florence (~65-70 miles from downtown Phoenix, but from say, Sun City West, you’re pushing almost 100 miles; from my house it’s 50 miles). About the only thing going for him is that Pinal County is very Republican.

In your neck of the woods, it probably would. Interestingly, up here in the wild north country, around this time of the year, plows and salt actually stop being effective countermeasures against snow. The reason? In the -20 °F (-28.9 C) and lower cold, even road salt can’t melt ice, and the compacted snow (from people driving on it) forms a solid layer known as the “Minnesota washboard” that even heavy plows can’t break through to move away. From January through mid-March, when warmer temperatures allow the salt to soak in and free the roads from nature’s hellish grasp, driving anywhere is a precarious endeavor.

It makes me chuckle every time I see ‘military-grade’ or ‘milspec’ on electronics, computer stuff, or other consumer tat, because, in reality, all ‘milspec’ means is that the item satisfies the stated request-for-proposal requirements for specs and performance and is usually produced by the lowest bidder.

I can vouch for this. My three years in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan while in the Air Force taught me a lot.

The first lesson was to never trust another driver who didn’t live in the UP to know anything about driving in the winter.

Don’t trust the locals, either. Most of us forget how to drive in winter until well into the winter, and in an emergency situation, all bets are off no matter how experienced you are. Ice is a harsh mistress.

Do these idiots realize that most military equipment, outside of the “stuff with guns” they fantasize about being able to own privately, is just civilian equipment with armor bolted on? Like, literally, most military contractors take one of their existing designs, add whatever additional shit the military demands as far as redundancy and resiliency, and then sell it to them at an impressive markup.

The KC-135 is actually a different aircraft. It’s a long story. Military 707s were orginally C-137, with additional designations (E-3, E-8, C-18) added later for special versions and ex-commercial aircraft.

Yes, technically, you are correct. The KC-135 and the Boeing 707 are siblings, or cousins; both derived from the Boeing 367-80 “Dash 80” experimental jet aircraft. I still consider it a 707 derivative when I look at the history of military aircraft, though it is an inaccurate oversimplification.

In Minnesota, it is the Department of Transportation. MN DOT plows and salts the federal and state highways; county DOTs plow and salt the county roads; and municipal roads are cared for by whatever department each city specifically designates. In my town, it is actually the purview of the Public Works Department to maintain the city streets.

I tend to think of the 07 as the derivative because the line went - IIRC - 367-80 to KC-135 and then to 707.

“Wounded” Poor Antoine was probably mounted when he was hit (currassiers were heavy cavalry), in which case he would have been knocked off backwards with the cannonball continuing on its way trailing a spray of blood and pulverized flesh. Ugly business. French currassiers continued to wear the armored (and polished) breastplates until the early days of World War I.

The C-135 Stratolifter & KC-135 Stratotanker are not technically Boeing 707s. The -135s and 707 are both divergent variants of the Boeing 367-80 prototype. While appearing the same, the 135 and 707 fuselages are completely different requiring separate assembly lines as the 707s are 4 inches wider, 148 inches compared to the 135s 144 inches. While the 367-80 had a 132 inch wide fuselage.
The USAF C-137 Stratoliners are converted 707s though. as are the E-3 Sentry, E-6 Mercury, E-8 Joint STARS and of course the VC-137C (Air Force One)

Give them carbines for a little bit of firepower, and use their mobility to scout and report. Cavalry attacks in the age of cannons are outdated.

AP News: Michigan Governor isolating from husband after testing positive for COVID-19

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer was isolating from her husband in their home Tuesday after he tested positive for COVID-19.

The governor, who was not experiencing symptoms, had a negative rapid test and was awaiting the results of a PCR lab test out of an abundance of caution, spokesperson Bobby Leddy said. Marc Mallory, whose home test came back positive after he became sick, was waiting for confirmation from a PCR test.

Both Whitmer and the 61-year-old first gentleman are fully vaccinated and have received a booster shot.

Leddy said they took extra precautions over the holidays to limit contact with others as they celebrated Christmas with immediate family members in Michigan.

The state, like the U.S., is facing an explosive increase in coronavirus case counts fueled by the super-contagious omicron variant. It is causing lots of infections but so far does not appear to be as severe in its effects.

“Until the PCR test comes back, the governor is isolating in a separate area of the house and has taken steps to complete contact tracing to keep others safe. … We wish the first gentleman a speedy recovery and hope he feels better soon,” Leddy said.

Shiloh Shepherd

The Shiloh Shepherd is an intelligent companion dog who responds well to training. Their gentle personality makes them excellent service dogs or therapy dogs. They’re very similar in appearance to a German Shepherd Dogs, but larger.

The Shiloh Shepherd has a combination of a few breeds in their genetic makeup that include the Alaskan Malamute and German Shepherd Dog. This big pooch is a softie and often described as affectionate and loving.

re: #70 Dopamine Fish

In your neck of the woods, it probably would. Interestingly, up here in the wild north country, around this time of the year, plows and salt actually stop being effective countermeasures against snow. The reason? In the -20 °F (-28.9 C) and lower cold, even road salt can’t melt ice, and the compacted snow (from people driving on it) forms a solid layer known as the “Minnesota washboard” that even heavy plows can’t break through to move away. From January through mid-March, when warmer temperatures allow the salt to soak in and free the roads from nature’s hellish grasp, driving anywhere is a precarious endeavor.

When I lived in northeastern NY state in my youth they didn’t use salt at all due to the persistent low temps. Sand or cinders for traction and they plowed to maintain street width without necessarily getting to the road itself. So an equivalent of “Minnesota washboard” for most of the winter, often 3-4” thick by spring for most of the village outside of the main streets. The intersections thawed out first and you have 3” deep ice water “ponds” all over that cars got stuck in now and then.

If the snow banks built up enough the giant snowblower would be used to toss the snow 10’ into the front yards. So you had a sand layer on your front yard in the spring that sometimes included the curbing.

Since part of the Philadelphia thing is to put plows on garbage trucks if necessary. And they need the hauling capacity since there is little/no spare space to plow the snow into to sit and melt.

All sorts of cavalry types in the Revolutionary and Napoleonic period. Different roles as well which also affected their equipment. The Americans never got much past dragoons, which if anything are more mounted infantry than regular cavalry. Once you get into shock charge cavalry there would be those wearing armor.

The Light Brigade in the Crimea was a mix of light dragoons, lancers, and hussars. Scout and skirmish formations armed with sabers and lances.

No offense to the Europeans, but I feel that the American cavalry commanders in the Civil War and immediately following had the right idea. Give them carbines for a little bit of firepower, and use their mobility to scout and report. Cavalry attacks in the age of cannons are outdated. Napoleon, Wellington, and Raglan were playing with fire.

There was a sort of rock/scissor/paper relationship in the smooth-bore musket era of European combat. Infantry fire range was short and sort of dependent on shock (bayonet) attack to drive home an assault.

Infantry were most efficient in line formation since that allowed a max number of muskets to fire at the enemy. However, an infantry line was very vulnerable to flank attack by cavalry. (Thus the “Thin Red Line”.) The infantry response to cavalry being present and near enough to attack would be to form into a square formation and thus not have a flank to be turned.

However, a infantry square is a very compact target for artillery. And since infantry fire was short ranged (comparatively) artillery could deploy not too distantly and then pound the infantry. And artillery could hurt cavalry since horses and men are large targets. But the artillery required some protection to keep from being overrun by the cavalry. (Who could make the gunners abandon their guns at least temporarily.) So having an infantry formation nearby to provide protection for the artillery was also desirable.
