From what I've read, some incredibly wrong instructions were given to the jury by the judge (including that truth wasn't a defense to libel, which is so wrong it's like saying water doesn't make you wet), so expect it to get promptly kicked back for a new trial. Me, I'm not sure how you can reconcile the idea that Ventura isn't a big enough POS to say what he said, but he IS a big enough POS to sue a vet's widow.

Yeah, the pilot was an unmitigated disaster, but the last two episodes (now that they have REAL military consultants) were quite watchable.

11th ACR? Blackhorse? Just hearing the name makes me want to dig through my David Drake pile and read some Slammers.

Judge Napolitano put it best yesterday on this subject -- "Something can be legal and unconstitutional at the same time." Right now, this looks like one of those situations -- it was plastered with the veneer of legality under the Patriot Act and the FISA rubber stamp, but at the same time, in its core, it was a blatant, obvious and intentional violation of the 4th Amendment. Why would he go to a Congressman with it when Congress is what gave it it's false legitimacy in the first place? That makes him an oathkeeper and patriot.

I thought the exact same thing. Silhouette! Silhouette!

Ugh. HDR fiasco. I would rather see a real-color version.

I don't think there is anything that is a bona fide secret in it, or frankly, they would be going the criminal prosecution route rather than the "strongly worded letter" route.

If you have to explain your apology, it's not an apology. When it comes to politics, you act like a dick -- top to bottom. It's not healthy.

Usually, when I have to explain to someone that they misunderstood me when they thought I was being a dick... I really was being a dick.

Wil, I wish you would just stay away from politics in general. Saying that you have no control over the ads is fine. Peppering in comments about the ad being "bullshit" and "gross" is like taking a big dump on the head of all your fans who don't agree with you on this particular point. It's demeaning. You're normally a great guy, especially on gaming and geekdom (which is why I come here.) But when it comes to politics, it's like you turn from Wil to Parrish. It's not a good look, dude. The motto at the top of the blog says "Don't be a dick!" You're not 100% on that one, yet.

Also, a name as awesome a Liberty Hope Steele should get you into any amusement parks you want just based on your sheer win-power.

Give him a break, he thought Idiocracy was a documentary when he was making it.

I won't be there, but I would like to know what your name-droppiest story would sound like. Not name droppy like hollywood, but geek name droppy.

Isn't this, at it's core, an admission by Axelrod that this administration actually thinks they had a choice? Seriously, does anyone not on the far left think that there is any other option with Bin Laden than "kill or capture at any opportunity?" Apparently, he thinks, "ehh, we'll wait a while and see what he does" was an option. If anything, this is a crushing indictment of Obama, not Romney, to think that this is even concievable.

Sure would be nice to see how those speedboats hold up to a 3 second burst from R2D2.

I know what you are saying, but it's still the wrong direction. College != mature and responsible. (See: Any Current College Campus.) Military a plus makes perfect sense. College experience for offloader/maintenance? Insane. Two years of liberals arts and transferable classes for a degree you never got is not what I want from a guy working on steam fittings. I want a guy who knows what end of the wrench you hold onto.

That either of these jobs list college as a plus is absolutely and totally insane. These are both "dirty jobs" in the Mike Rowe sense. Good work that makes civilized life possible for the rest of us... but they aren't something you go to college for.

It's simple to me how he was caught. Profiling. And not by the FBI. That sort of model flying is a fairly small community. You certainly don't just drop into the hobby and decide to start flying large, $20K dollar aircraft. For someone to show up, out of the blue, and order up the equivalent of three Ferraris as a starter car had to strike the shop owner as odd enough to warrant a call to the FBI.

"Paradigm shifts happen in science all the time." Actually, this gets to the heart of it. If Oncologists called something a carcinogen, and then found that people taking in that substance were no longer getting cancer, they would change their stance. When that happens in Climate "Science", they simply double down on the initial hypothesis. Carbon raises temperatures! Sorry, Charlie, carbon dioxide kept going up, but temps fell for a decade and are heavily correlated to solar activity. Hypothesis falsified. "Uh... no... it's climate change! Whatever happens, climate is going to change and kill us all!"
