    WOW, taking an already improved property! I am dumbfounded by how BRAZEN the City of Boulder is to even consider, to even give voice to this idea. If Boulder wants to get in on the energy game just buy it, but to abuse and corrupt the entire system through condemnation proceedings,...... WOW!

    Shouldn’t be able to as when you try to vote in a runoff the poll workers actually check to see which Party’s primary you voted in. Now as for those who did not vote in the primary, or voted in the other Party’s primary to,..... influence the outcome that certainly can happen.

    “The big issue for cross-over voters was if they voted in the Democratic primary on 6/3, they were NOT allowed to vote in the Republican run-off on 6/24. It is illegal.”

    *pinging* Black Agnes as she is in MS and is a font of information on this.

    This is the payoff, I can only speak about Texas, but if you vote in the primary and there is a runoff you can only vote in the same Party's runoff as the Primary you voted in.

    An example would be again in Texas during the March primary you voted in the Democrat Party Primary and the race most important to you is Lt. Governor. The Democrat candidate pulls more than 50%+1 vote so she is the Democrat nominee. The Republican primary has neither top vote getter receiving 50%+1 so the top two Lt. Governor candidates will be in a runoff.
    You (that voted in the Dem primary) decide one of the candidates will be easier for your candidate to defeat in the General Election. You therefore want to vote in the Re pub Party Primary RUNOFF to influence which person will be on the ballot. You CANNOT, since you voted in the Democrat Party Primary you have to vote in the Democrat Party Runoff.

    The above applies to Texas but it makes since. I am sure that Mississippi has to have some statute codifying allowed and not allowed ballot casting. I guess it all boils down to, if the MS law is similar to the Texas law, and if a larger number of seemingly not proper ballots are identified than the difference between the two Senate candidates, then the result ought to be thrown out and a second runoff election take place.

    My opinion anyway.

    He redshirted as a freshman, so while a junior academically or chronologically, it is only athletically that he is/was a sophomore. Also, based on an earlier post he began attending during the Spring Semester so he was ahead by a Semester anyway.
    Finally, the way I read the posts is he's close to his degree, not finished. I doubt he's done much class work this Spring Semester as preparations for the Combine and the School's/Player's Pro-Day seem to have become a full-time pastime.

    Also, I don't think you have to graduate to get an Aggie Ring.

    I am very pleased that Ted Cruz was elected in 2012, but IMO if the primaries had run at their normal scheduled times I believe it would have been VERY difficult for him to have accomplished what he did.
    Various groups sued claiming the redistricting maps the legislature put in place were unfair or racist or whatever the complaint and the primary in Texas was pushed back many weeks. The Cruz campaign benefited greatly from the delay, his first radio commercial was fantastic and the momentum just built from there.
    The Texas 2014 primary is the first week on March, when it historically takes place and early voting is already open, I do not believe that time is on anyone’s side this time except the incumbents.
    That being said 7 challengers may split the vote enough to take it to a runoff, but will the electorate coalesce around someone other than Cornyn, I know what everyone hopes but will lightning strike twice in Texas?
    Cornyn’s radio adds have been compelling even if most here thing the are tripe, you only have to convince 50% + 1 every six years as a Senator.

  • Little Hope For Beechcraft In USAF Dispute

    06/14/2013 12:24:03 PM PDT · 28 of 50
    thinkthenpost to Bringbackthedraft
    Many folks have suggested that, I found this at Wikipedia:

    As the U.S. ended its direct involvement in the war, it transferred the remainder of its Skyraiders to the South Vietnamese, and by 1973, all remaining Skyraiders in U.S. inventories had been turned over to the VNAF.[27] Unlike their American counterparts, whose combat tours were generally limited to 12 months, individual South Vietnamese Skyraider pilots ran up many thousands of combat hours in the A-1, and many senior VNAF pilots were extremely skilled in the operation of the aircraft.

    So it reads like that isn't an option.

    I have thought that reactivating 10 to 24 A-37’s and T-37’s would be a nice idea until the Tascano or new Beech's were ready. Many years later still nothing has been delivered.

    Seemed like a nice idea: clear a little room out near Tucson, get some support in the air in Afghanistan, get some stick time for their new pilots not sure when the new planes will be delivered. Also might be a chance for some of the countries still flying those airframes to get some parts as the refurb work was going on. Oh, well have a nice weekend.

    I've thought for along time rolling out 12 A-37’s and 4 T-37’s from the Arizona desert would be a great interim solution for the Afghan Air Force. I also figured they'd be getting their aircraft about now, rather than still waiting for the selection to be made much less starting production.
    Reminds me WAY too much of the Boeing/Airbus tanker stinkfest.

    I also thought they may take a role in keeping their country this time, but it looks like 10-12 years down the road not much will have changed after the US/NATO withdrawal,......... disappointing!

    Actually IIRC the oil coming from Canada is not particularly easy to refine. The reason to ship it to Texas is two fold IMO.

    The first is many if the refineries in Texas handle the,.... less than sweet light crude than comes from Venezuela so they can more easily accommodate the oil from the tar sands.
    The second is that oil refined in Texas is shipped to most of the country through existing pipelines, MANY existing pipelines, they have already been built.

    I would have no doubt some of this may be exported, but I think the majority would be used here.

    Finally, I think the pipeline from the Dakotas on ought to be built since quite a bit of oil is being produced there and since no international boundary is involved the State Department should have no role to play. You can always add on the bit to Canada later if say administrations change.

    Full disclosure; I can not stand OSU, those representing the inistitution and those that played for the institution routinely come off as pompous jackasses IMO.

    Having said that anyone support sanctions against a university whose players sold items that were theirs to do with as they pleased, and are screaming that you can't lie to the NCAA or that the coverup is worse than the crime,....... I'd like to know your take of what happened to Scooter Libby because to my eye it is a very similar series of events.

    Like Green Accord wrote below:
    THE Ohio State University richly deserves the very same “death penalty” that SMU received from the NCAA
    So, SMU directly paying 21 of its players $61,000 (in 1986 money) while they were on probation is akin to 5 players selling their own freebies they got from the university for about $7,500 (in 2010 dollars) while not on probation?

    Yeah, I get that. </sarc>

    Someone needs to either explain this to me, or show me the payments to the players, so far I don't see it!

    Folks apparently this is a USNS ship rather than a USS. Bob Hope has a USNS ship named after him (an entire class I believe)I don't have a great deal of trouble with this, I'm sure others are more deserving, but I'm sure less deserving have so been honored. Regardless, maybe it keeps the name off a DDG-51 for another.

    I'm trouble more so with the Marine Sgt.family refusing a Navy Cross or even it being offered. My understanding is he would be nominated and perhaps awarded a Navy Cross regardless of the family's wishes. They may refuse to accept it, but that's merely points of order IMO. The story doesn't seem to cover it, but what is the family's take, doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

    I won't argue about rifle above 10K, but IMO 1.5-10K it is some kind of 700 based action probably greater than 5 to 1.
    IMO if you don't monkey with the trigger I think it is largely a non issue. Even the gunsmith who advanced the dirt under the connector theory had to admit he hasn't been able to find an example of it.

    As for the receiver, Remingtons (IMO) are generally more accurate and / or easier to make accurate than the model 70 or a Mauser. I'm a Savage guy (lefty), and they are probably a bit more accurate out of the box than Remingtons, BUT they are not a particularly pretty rifle to my eye.

    NVDave, you must have missed the post about the OVERWHELMING majority of custom and long range rifles are made on or clones of the 700 action. The number of action makers that are basically making Remington actions is longer than I know and I can come up with double digits of the top of my head.
    People spending money not on factory guns, but custom built rifles are buying Remingtons. IMO if Remington had a clue they'd tighten up their tolerances and step the Quality Control and maybe recapture a bit of what they've lost to the custom gun builders.

    As for the CNBC special, if a rifle I had did anything like the footage they ran I'd consider that gun broke and would then fix it the idea of immediately removing it from service is,.... hard for me to believe. Remington has the same basic action with a 2oz. trigger (40x) and NO safety, safeties are mechanical and anything can fail. I believe if it were a negligently bad design MANY more folks would be dead, and Remington would either be out of business or everyone would have a new trigger
    As for a potential hang fire. I'd have to clear the action pointing down range, if it was safe for me to pull the trigger it ought to be safe to open the action pointing in the same direction.
    Finally like another posted: You don't let the muzzle cover anything you don't want to destroy!
    I try to follow that at home, out and about, anytime I'm handling a weapon even if I handled it last, or if I just reloaded it

    The first line defines marriage.

    The relevant part of the second line is

    “...this state may not ... recognize any legal status identical ... to marriage”

    This is very clear. The intentions don’t matter.

    Marriage itself is identical to marriage.

    I will repeat myself from above:
    Clearly, (IMO) the second phrase is stating the State will nor raise or recognize something else (not involving a man and a woman) as a marriage.

    I think you are arguing for the sake of arguing at this point. I guess we’ll just have to wait for the AG’s office to issue its opinion, I think that is about as close as Barbara will get to the AG’s office.

    Sorry Meta, look at the actual verbage, it is one sentence and is even more clear IMO than how you presented it in the initial posting. I think Babs will be disappointed with the AG opiniom when it is issued, looks and sounds like settled law to me.

    Barbara Ann Radnofsky is either an idiot, or is pushing an agenda. The amendment’s first subsection defines marriage. Only an attorney, or someone looking to muck things up can ignore the first have of this amendment and then claim Texas is banning marriage or will not recognize marriage. Clearly, (IMO) the second phrase is stating the State will nor raise or recognize something else (not involving a man and a woman) as a marriage.

    You may agree or disagree with the passage of the amendment but it is pretty clear in what is covered an not covered to me when I read it.

    “Male urine is better than female urine because it is slightly less acidic.”

    I would have thought that urine would retard the composting process because of this rather than advance it.

    “It’s a trick question: THEY BOTH ARE!”

    Dangus is right folks, but IMO I think Rick is the better candidate. Might have to leave Governor blank next year if Kay Bailey gets the nomination.

    I told my son, some day you’ll have kids of your own, he said so will you!

    My wife told me to eat all my food there are kids hungry in Europe.
    I told her have sex with me, there are men horny in Canada!

    My wife and I agreed to smoke only after sex, I’ve had the same pack since 1975, my wife she’s up to three packs a day!

    Makes sense to me, but my understanding is when the DOD stops paying for maintenance. All the machining and such is not just broken down, but broken up if you know what I mean.
