The Empire of the Summer Moon now about the history of the Comancheria, will report back.
A fascinating read. And a good antidote to the noble savage myth. Those fuckers were the Hells Angels of Oklahoma-Texas.

Re: 72 Virgins for Qasem Soleimani

It do for me: Mr Trump, after the strike, told associates he was under pressure to deal with Gen. Soleimani from GOP senators he views as important supporters in his coming impeachment trial in the Senate, associates said. For perspective, the WSJ broke the Ukraine phonemail whistleblower report th...

Re: 72 Virgins for Qasem Soleimani

We had the opportunity, so we killed him." It's been that way, with plenty of opportunities, since I was there in 2008 (when I got "read in" to what was going on). And Trump finally did something about it. Killing him while a guest of the Iraqis was strategically dumb. That's one take on it. Anothe...

Re: 72 Virgins for Qasem Soleimani

How's this: "He was the military leader of a designated terrorist organization operating in Iraq. He killed & maimed US soldiers, attacked US allies, and invaded the US embassy. He was planning more murder. We had the opportunity, so we killed him." PS - It has always been within Congress's power to...

Re: 72 Virgins for Qasem Soleimani

Killing him in Iraq was ill advised. We made the Shia dominated government in Iraq look stupid. We made them look like they cannot take care of their guests. No. The Iraqi government made themselves look like they can't take care of their guests. In fact, that they don't want to. NYTimes: The fact ...

Trump may be an asshole, but he wants to be an asshole. And if he's gaining minority voters as some polls sugges...

Re: IR Sauna

I've had an IR sauna for about three years and it reaches a top temp. of 130 degrees. Now, many studies discuss the benefits of temps of 170 degrees; I don't know what that bodes for my low powered sauna.

If I were to start from zero, I'd shop for a sauna that can hit higher the temperatures.

Re: YOU CLOSS THE LINE

As with almost all videos, this starts in the middle of things and we have to assume what came before.

But if Asian lady did hit Caucasian lady's parked car, then she is the primary offender. Stupidity all around.

Three novels by Kent Anderson, loosely based on his experiences first as a Special Forces soldier in Vietnam, then as a cop in Portland, then in Oakland. Each novel stands alone. But I recommend they be read in chronological sequence: "Sympathy for the Devil," "Night Dogs," and "Green Sun." I suspec...
