Walt 721pm - And where does the current plan point for the maiden voyage?
Toggle Commented 3 hours ago on Sandbox – 28aug16 at Rebane's Ruminations
[Just got back from a little RV trip with friends and family. We did the Bend, OR to coast, down the coast to CA, and back home again on good ol’ Hwy 20 circuit. Connectivity still sucks in most of... Continue reading

Gregory 1229am - point well taken; even though the STEM hiring deficit is probably true, no doubt some unfilled jobs are also due to a mismatch of STEM majors. Nevertheless, Is not The Chronicle of Higher Education the communication arm of the leftwing national 'professors' union' which will always argue that they are fulfilling the nation's higher educational needs?

George Rebane [This is the transcript of my regular KVMR commentary broadcast on 17 August 2016.] Student debt and college costs are out of control. Under the passionate paeans of progressives over the last decades, we have been taught that... Continue reading

Walt 505pm - Hillary's prayer life notwithstanding Mr Bronson, we should all allow the Left to wallow in the joy of certitude. The new deck chair arrangement may actually have come in time.

Paul Emery, please call your office.

Yes, tyrannies not only appear stable but are the most stable form of government. Any given tyranny may be short lived, only to be replaced by its successor. And it really breaks me up to read about liberal Jews being blindsided by America's blacks. For an ethnic group that correctly prides itself on intelligence, they sure have a centuries old aggregate blind spot when it comes to supporting modes of governance that serve their best interests. Something about collectivism serving equally in the large as it does in the small.

BradC 1106am - From your mouth to Obama's ear Mr Croul. I do believe that your idea is already well on its way to implementation.

[Putin is making nice with Iran and Turkey, two competitors for the new Mideast hegemon. That sure looks like the latest, and possibly the worst, Foxtrot Uniform of Obama's foreign policy, leaving Russia as the new 'go-to power' if you... Continue reading

BillT 748pm - Thank you Mr Tozer, go for it!
BillT 504pm - Pray tell Mr Tozer, what in hell does Soros have to do with the trials, tribulations, and travails of Ms Senum??
re Gregory's 152pm - Koonin called out both bad data and bad models that continue to be used today by the know-nothings to promote climate hysteria that is the prime driver for achieving the objectives of Agenda21. While not a new observation, it is a needed one to be repeated as often as the Left continues to pass calamitous climate calamity legislation.

NormS 1128am - The direct link to the polling article is -
Gregory 905am - Can you be a bit more explicit about your concerns?
re GeorgeB 146pm - While the flip flops are real, it's hard to see how they differentiate Trump as a politician from equal video clips that can be assembled of Obama, Clinton(both), Reid, Pelosi, ... . Perhaps that can be done if you only pay attention to one side and not the other.
GeorgeB 329pm - so noted Mr Boardman.
BillT 1205pm - Indeed Mr Tozer, from your mouth to the RNC ear.

PaulE 1124pm - since ISIS didn't exist before Obama, and the mid-east roilings along with the west's retreat from Islam existed way before Bush2, then how far back along the causal chain do you want to go Paul? Why stop at Bush2? Wanna draw a line to FDR? How about back to Wilson and the League of Nations that made a mess of the mid-east after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire at the end of WW1? You do seem to have a nervous tick whenever you can point anything back to Bush2, the man who you and yours saw inherit a veritable global Shangri-la when he stepped into the Oval Office ;-)

GeorgeB 1109am - Interesting thought Mr Boardman, but I don't think our little community would be ready for that one even if the both of us could find a way to manage it ;-)

Administrivia - per reader request I've expanded the number to 25 of the most recent posts displayed on RR's start page. Hopefully this makes the recently updated ones more accessible. Haven't figured out yet how/if Typepad allows me to list the most recently updated ones in the right hand margin.

BillT 955am - Good idea Mr Tozer, but Typepad in their wisdom only allows the last so many posts to be shown there. But let me puzzle on it some more. Thanks.
The Reinette Senum pot continues to bubble. Responding to the recent Other Voices column that called me out, the Union published my letter. Please see the 12aug16 update of 'Reinette Senum - the aftermath'.

Ah yes, that notorious '7.5%' is being rediscovered as the folly it has been for the last seven plus years. For the new reader, and the forgetful longtime reader, RR was among, if not the first, to disparage that expected return number that was introduced at the recession's nadir. At the time I wrote a regular Union column, and in its 16aug09 edition, we find 'Public Pensions - a breakdown' which I expanded in these pages under the title 'Public Pension Ponzi' (link below). And all this occurred two years after we at SESF presented our BoS with an analysis and warning of the county's unfunded liabilities. All of these, to us obvious, insights were sniffed at by our betters in the Rood Center and in Sacramento. Evincing belated discovery or surprise at such gross and moss covered ignorance today is simply fraud.
