      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. My gut feelings. a) Crystal was on full autopilot mode - If there was a human on the bridge, he wasn't looking out the windows. I bet that captain's policy was to use AIS as the primary source for tracking ships rather than radar. They never saw the tin can. b ) The fantail watch on the DD was goofing off or sleeping. His primary role was to watch the water for MOB anyway. Everyone else on the bridge were looking out ahead of the DD for possible dangers. c) The men in CIC dropped the ball big time. No excuse for not reporting any changes in CPA on every surface target. The inquiry will find that Crystal will be primarily at fault for failing to keep clear in an overtaking situation, but Fitzgerald will share the blame for failing to take action. Expect that the CO, XO and all officers on watch will be forced to resign/retire. The enlisted men might be allowed to stay in the Navy.

  6. Obama's Mexican Gunrunning Operation

    I don't think this has been brought up. http://www.nationalreview.com/blogs/print/303808
  7. Obama's Mexican Gunrunning Operation

    Well, "Since Nixon Did Watergate Obama Did F&F" is certainly a new dog in this hunt. Let's see how he pans out. I double checked on Melson. He didn't resign, he was transferred. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0811/62320.html Rather than stringing him up by his balls, they gave him a nice cushy job where he doesn't have to make any decisions.
  8. Obama's Mexican Gunrunning Operation

    I think Obama is naive in his tactics. Alan Simpson, recalling from memory, I once saw say that "a lie unrefuted is a lie believed". Simpson's a hard bitten old vet at this stuff, Obama is a rook. He thinks, or at least certainly at the beginning of his administration thought, that this is not a Machiavellian game. Perceived weakness can be as bad as real weakness. Yeah, give them enough rope and they will hang themselves, and you can fall back on a rope-a-dope, but sometimes...as Clemenza put it: "You know, you gotta stop them at the beginning. Like they should have stopped Hitler at Munich, they should never let him get away with that, they was just asking for trouble." If the person in charge of this had been canned, we wouldn't be having this discussion. If Nixon had fired some of his CREEP people at the beginning, he would have served his entire term. In both administrations, it will be the coverup that will bring them down. Melson has resigned. What cover up are you referring to? So did Haldeman and all the rest of Nixon's cronies, well after the original break in. Didn't help Nixon any. Holder's resignation now may slow the firestorm to come, but Melson resignation well after the investigation starting isn't going to cut it now.

    Mmmm, yeah... Delightful. She's a regular on AOTS and other G4TV shows.
  11. Hottest Women

    Ask her if she always wants to be met with this line "is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to meet me?"
  12. Hottest Women

    Do you hunt Tony the Tiger with that gun? On your hot list, do you have every sport's team chearleaders on them?
  13. Hottest Women

    Natalie Portman and Jessica Alba. Sorry, That 70's show has left a bad taste in my mouth to this day.
  14. Hottest Women

    Not bad looking in her prime, and her voice...
  15. Obama's Mexican Gunrunning Operation

    Well, since your new hero, Melson, claims that he didn't know what his own department was doing, how would the president know? He may not have known, but Holder did know about "gun runner". Check the date of the speech. http://www.justice.gov/ag/speeches/2009/ag-speech-090402.html Project Gunrunner predated Fast & Furious. It started in 2005. I should hope that Holder was aware of it. Mission creep? I believe that F&F used the same personnel.
