South Bend's Mayor Pete Buttigieg and his husband Chasten Buttigieg attend a rally to announce Pete Buttigieg's 2020 Democratic presidential candidacy in South Bend, Indiana, on Sun., April 14, 2019.

Rising in polls and name recognition among Democratic voters, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg officially entered the 2020 race for president Sunday, hopeful he can achieve a feat that has proved elusive to many: pave a successful path from a city hall to the White House.

Buttigieg, a 37-year-old progressive small-town mayor in deep-red Indiana with a difficult-to-pronounce last name, unexpectedly raised $7 million in donations in the first quarter, and has surged to third place in recent polls in Iowa and New Hampshire. A veteran of the war in Afghanistan, Buttigieg is also one of the first openly gay candidates to vie for a major party's presidential nomination.

Well, well.  He only checks one box.  Is it enough to offset being a White Male?  Just another far left, progressive communist bringing hope and change. Duh.

Spin Zone / Hillary's Russian Re-set
« on: April 14, 2019, 03:23:05 PM »
I was thinking today how lucky we are that Hillary lost after seeing her in the Media yet again saying stupid stuff.  It reminded me of this.  LOL!  The translation was wrong!  I love her uncomfortable, overly loud cackling laugh as she is seething inside over being made to look even more foolish.  I would love to have seen her firing the aide that had the translation done in a totally Chardonnay induced meltdown I'm sure.

Spin Zone / The Democrat and MEDIA White Nationalist narrative
« on: March 19, 2019, 05:08:08 AM »
Lately I've been hearing the term White Nationalist more, and more in the media and from Democrats in association with Trump, Trump supporters, and Republicans.  To me Nationalism means Patriotism, and doing the right things for the U.S. and its CITIZENS.  The Democrats and Media have now perverted it to mean Racism, Xenophobia, and White Supremacy in the KKK/Nazi vein.

This is another attempt by the Media and Democrats to further divide us with a LIE.  This narrative is untrue.  There is no significant White Supremacist movement in the U.S.  Yet we here it more and more.

Sorry, having computer problems, so can't copy and paste relevant text from articles.  Maybe someone else can.  Here is one example, but it is all over the Media associating Trump and Trump supporters with White Nationalism effectively calling the White Supremacists.

Spin Zone / Blatant and admitted Leftist indoctrination by Education

Yeah, I know Breitbart, but tell me where their quotes of the NEA and others are wrong or taken out of context.

My laptop is down, so I can't copy and paste text with my phone, nor tablet.  Maybe someone else can.  I don't like just to post links with no text, so sorry.

The Democratic-majority Colorado state Senate passed a bill this week that would give the state’s electoral votes in presidential elections to the candidate who wins the popular vote instead of the Electoral College.
Colorado’s Senate passed the bill in a 19-16 vote Tuesday along party lines.
The bill would mandate that the state’s members of the Electoral College vote for the presidential candidate who wins the popular vote.


So Colorado, my former home, has now proven itself to be full retard.  I saw it going Blue when I lived there.  The progressives on the Front Range, most transplants from Commie states like CA now control the entire state like many states today controlled by their large population center metro areas (city butbs, ex burbs)


They've joined eleven other states that have passed this unconstitutonal law. 

Signatories

 Maryland
 New Jersey
 Illinois
 Hawaii
 Washington
 Massachusetts
 District of Columbia
 Vermont
 California
 Rhode Island
 New York
 Connecticut
 Maine

The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NPVIC) is an agreement among a group of U.S. states and the District of Columbia to award all their electoral votes to whichever presidential candidate wins the overall popular vote in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The compact is designed to ensure that the candidate who wins the most popular votes is elected president, and it would come into effect only when it would guarantee that outcome.[2][3] As of January 2019, it has been adopted by eleven states and the District of Columbia. Together, they have 172 electoral votes, which is 32.0% of the Electoral College and 63.7% of the votes needed to give the compact legal force.

You can't make this up. Now the Black students want a separate room in the "Multicultural Room" or just their own building. Evidently, being Inclusive requires Exclusion. 

Quote
American University has created a space for students of different identities to come together and foster a sense of community, but some students recently complained it’s too inclusive.
The room, known as the Hub for Organizing Multiculturalism and Equity, or HOME, opened in November 2017 in the wake of alleged hate crimes against black students.

More recently, a feature in The Eagle campus newspaper on the 1-year-old room detailed how some students are frustrated that officials allow students of any ethnicity to use it, rather than only students of color, and also that “several students said they viewed HOME as a response to their request for a black house.”

“What we needed was a large community space that the entire black community could get together and support one another,” student Ma’at Sargeant, a member of the Black Student Alliance, told the newspaper.
And more than black students are voicing concern.

Sam Liang, a member of the Asian American Student Union, said “I understand why they would’ve opened it to everyone because exclusivity isn’t something that’s really garnered on campus … but it makes it feel like the point of it isn’t there anymore.”

Othniel Malcolm Andrew Harris, a student who has been involved in organizing protests at the university, told The College Fix that HOME is not enough for black students on campus after reports of racist incidents from a few years back.

Harris explained that other schools, including in the D.C. area, have “Black Houses,” which are on-campus houses dedicated to black students, and he wants the same for American University.

Spin Zone / U.S. to pull out of Syria
« on: December 19, 2018, 09:07:07 AM »
I think this is a good thing!  Will liberal/progressives (Democrats) acknowledge Trump is doing the right thing here?

Quote
The U.S. military is preparing to withdraw its forces from Syria, people familiar with the matter said Wednesday, a move that marks an abrupt reversal of the American military strategy in the Middle East.

Spin Zone / Paris Riots
« on: December 08, 2018, 10:32:37 AM »
Anyone watching these?  Evidently, the normally passive French are upset over yet more taxes this time aimed at "addressing" Man Made Climate Change and Carbon.  The UK charges draconian taxes for this stuff, and France wants to do it now.  They have backed off due to the push back from vicious demonstrations in the streets of Paris.

Pilot Zone / How unstable were WWII fighter aircraft?
« on: November 19, 2018, 09:21:36 AM »
As we all have done, I have read some stories about flying WWII fighter aircraft.  Today, we also know the fighter aircraft get their maneuverability by instability, but the computer controls that aspect of keeping the plane from departing controlled flight, or corrects for it when it happens. 

Obviously, they did not have computers to compensate for instability.  So how difficult was it to "safely" fly an ME-109, Spitfire, FW-190, P-51, P-40, Zero, P-47, etc?  Was the approach to landing stall/spin a major problem for lower time pilots? 

Not that I will ever be able to own, nor fly a warbird like the above, but can a relatively good GA pilot be trained to safely fly them, or is the task very daunting?

Pilot Zone / LSA gross weight increas to 3,600 lbs!
« on: October 11, 2018, 05:50:49 AM »
If this is true, this is GREAT news.

Quote
A high-ranking FAA source has confirmed that the FAA plans to almost triple the maximum weight for most light sport aircraft to 3600 pounds in rulemaking that will be introduced in January. The source confirmed the scant details of a Facebook post written by AOPA Senior VP of Media and Outreach Tom Haines from the AOPA Regional Fly-In at Carbondale, Illinois. “Great news out of AOPA: your freedom to fly Fly-in at Carbondale,” Haines wrote. “In January the FAA will issue a notice of proposed rulemaking increasing max weight for a light sport airplane from 1320 lbs to 3600 lbs

Pilot Zone / I'm sick. Friend just lost his Bonanza to a hangar fire
« on: October 04, 2018, 10:35:56 AM »
One of my best friends has been flying since he was 16 (he's 64 now), and has had one of the nicest V35B's in the country.  It has the Colemill Starfire conversion (300HP, four blade Q tip prop), and the latest Garmin, and other avionics.  He has spared no expense on the panel, and upkeep of the plane which he has had since 2003.

Well, the neighboring hangar had a fire that consumed about 1/3 of the hangars in his row.  There are Barons on either side of him, and they both got torched along with his plane.  He is sick of course, as am I.  Ugh.  :(

Spin Zone / Obama Admin - Oppressive Regime?
« on: January 10, 2018, 05:41:40 AM »
During Obama's eight years in office, I believed Conservative, Libertarians, or anyone that did not tow the Progressive line was under siege.  Agencies within the Administration were actively going after those that weren't Party Apparatchik.  The NSA was listening to our conversations, examining our emails, texts, website posts, etc.  A big reason why I don't do Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.  The IRA, EPA, DOJ, BATF, and other agencies were actively punishing political opponents that weren't Democrat. 

I believe that as we look back on this, it will be considered a dark age, not unlike Stalinist Russia (Soviet Union), or Nazi Germany.  Possibly, those analogies are too strong as there were no mass murders, or gulags that we know of, but the other characteristics are certainly there.

Opinions?

Spin Zone / Liberal America has a poltical violence problem
« on: July 14, 2017, 09:59:07 AM »

Liberalism...

The home of racism masked as social justice, the home of thievery disguised as entitlement programs, the home intolerance masked as morality, the home of violence masked as peaceful protest

The above is in the comment section from this Opinion piece from an outsider, ironically a gay man (not a staff writer of the two local liberal rags).

Quote
Hamburg, Germany, July 2017. As world leaders gather for the G20 summit, far-left “anti-fascist” (Antifa) rioters set fire to cars and property, terrorize residents, and injure more than 200 police officers attempting to keep the peace. Did you miss it? CNN’s initial reports referred to the “protesters” as “eclectic” and “peaceful”.
 
But you need not cross the shining seas to experience violence, destruction of property and a general dismantling of liberal values from the political left. You could simply visit America’s elite college campuses like Yale or Middlebury or Berkeley, where tomorrow’s leaders attempt to shut down conservative voices with protest or riots. At Middlebury, rioting students landed liberal professor Allison Stranger in a neck brace for the crime of defending a conservative academic’s right to speak. At Berkeley, mobs of students created a “war zone” ahead of a planned visit from conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, injuring Trump supporters and causing $100,000 in damages.

Or head to Portland, Oregon, one of the most liberal cities in the nation in the heart of the progressive Pacific Northwest, which last week Politico labeled “America’s Most Politically Violent City.” The progressive paradise– where Republicans are virtually an extinct species – has witnessed millions in damages attributed to the same types of anti-fascists-in-name-only that kept Hamburg residents paralyzed in fear this month. A “counter-protest” to a planned pro-Trump rally landed 14 Antifa in jail for attacking the police with explosives and bricks
