    I thought it was more F= M x A…as in as soon as those heavy duty doggies slam into those invaders at full speed, they accelerate their asses back south of the frickin’ border.

    Ahem, I hope once we get rid of Santa Anna’s great great grandsons we can get back to the swimming hole…it was just getting interesting…

    Did you see Sharna in DWTS tonight? Sam in the flesh!

    • Grunt GI

      Wow…could be…but really…could there be another Sam?
      Stay tuned…

      Did you see Sharna in DWTS tonight? Sam in the flesh!

      Not even CLOSE! The girl is attractive but Sam in the flesh? Not hardly. Hips are too narrow and the boobs, while nice, are – at BEST a small “b” or even a large “a” (which is entirely OK. Boobies don’t have to be mammoth to be memorable.) which as way to early in the alphabet to be Sam.

      Nope. My image of “Sam in the flesh” is more along the lines of Lucy Collette (AKA Lucy Vixen) a sometime Page 3 girl.

      Here are a couple of representative pics of her: (WARNING: NSFW note the “W” can stand either for “work” or “wife”)

      • Grunt GI

        Eh, not as cute as Sam, but nice rack.
        And probably not nearly as interesting as Sam.

  • Do those mech doggies bite or just zap their targets?

    • Chris Muir

      You tell me.Shall they do both?:)

      • Bill G

        Yes. Bite, zap, toss…and do a Happy Dance on the remains when a coyote tries violence.
        The feral hogs should take care of any to, to mortal flesh left over.

        • Kafiroon

          Yes. Absolutely. I like the dance on the remains part, even though I prefer large voltage/high amperage and Napalm.

          • Bill G

            Yes, a flamethrower option would be nice.

      • jackdeth72

        Please add a Drop Kick Function, Chris.

      • Old Codger

        Nudge (ram?) first, then zap. I didn’t know they had the capability to bite. Even if they do, I don’t think it’d be a great idea. We don’t want the beggars injured, merely run off back to where they came from. Now a way to grab hold and drag the south might not be a bad idea.

        • Arkelk

          I agree: nudge/ram and zap and poke. Biting could cause other problems for the good guys.

      • JSStryker

        Both, plus maybe a 12ga shotgun onboard for those that try to fight back.

      • Why can’t we have both? Teeth coming together complete a circuit and Z-A-P-P-O-O-O-O!

        That’s gotta smart!

    Practical applications of classroom theory are always an excellent teaching method.
    Javier’s home schooling is going very well.

    • Agreed, exactly. This is the true teaching of a thing.

  • Spin Drift

    Let’s see Conservation of Energy prevails so kinetic energy of the little doggies gets transferred into the latin Pinatas. M1V1 = M2V2, your mileage may vary.

    I wonder what escape velocity is on the south parcel?

      Not sure. Bet the little doggies could calculate it for the Doppler shift of their screams….

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    Elementary Applied Physics 101.

  • TJ

    Actually, the correct equation is

    force x distance through which the force acts = work done

    In context, I think the appropriate equation should be:

    force applied by kick x distance of play for foot in contact with kicked butt =

    distance flown x atmospheric resistance force (a.k.a. drag, which has nothing to do with drag queens), though this ignores gravity like most of cartoon physics.

    The acceleration of the kickee is force of kick divided by mass of kickee.

    Needless to say, a kick of sufficient force to actually push a body over the border, even at a distance of a couple of miles (and considering gravity), will probably actually cleave the kickee as thoroughly, if more messily, as an equivalent swing of a well sharpened katana (or an impact of the 12.00 caliber boot moving a supersonic velocities). Meaning that the parts will effectively go nowhere. That’s the reality of non-comic book physics.

    (Not that I don’t enjoy comic book physics from time to time…it’s a great way to have your cake and eat it too, as long as you remember that it’s not real.)

    Applying force to invaders…

    Had to drive the two hours from Sebring down to son’s store in Palm Beach Gardens today. The route is a straight shot down Beeline Highway (appropriately enough) and 20 miles out from my destination, right in the middle of a huge conservation, hunting, and wetlands area is Pratt Whitney Aircraft. I’ve driven by there hundreds of times over the years and I do not ever remember seeing such activity in and out of the complex and so many vehicles in the employee parking area. They do make a lot of commercial jet engines but they are best known for the power units in some of our primary fighter jets. Add to that the increased dogfight training that swirls in the darkness overhead in Sebring as pilots train around the Avon Park Bombing Range…and I have to believe that there is major planning and prepping afoot.

    Coincidence? Maybe. But referencing Pamela’s quip about limiting speed on new-gen prototype fighters, I’d like to think Trump and Co. are feeling the “need for speed”, and applying pre-emptory force to invaders before they invade? That’s the ticket.

    • David Gonzalez

      Good Gawd; am I ever behind times! Last I recall, P&W was located in Grand Prairie, Texas—at what used to be called “NAS Dallas”. My tame JOCS will probably chime in to chide me about my lapses of memory. My own training field was in Half Day, Illinois. Today, that big plot of real estate is an industrial park and my beloved NAS Glenview is now expensive homes and upscale boutiques. The only place to park a PA28-140 is what used to be Palwaukee Airport, but is now “Chicago Executive Air Park”, or some-such nonsense.

      • Spin Drift

        DG, in the middle of the Glenview NAS used to be station is a small park dedicated to the men/women who trained there. A good friend headed up the committee to make that happen. His long gone father trained on Wildcats there. So did Bush 41. The life size bronze figures in the central square are from the same firm that did them for the Museum of Naval Aviation at NAS Pensacola. Go visit both if you can, you can smell/taste the history.

      • John D. Egbert

        JOCS(RET), yes. “Tame” — not so sure; could say similar ’bout a certain Tweet of long acquaintance.

        Re P&W, far as I know they’re still in Stratford, CT as part of United Technologies, which includes Hamilton Standard (yes, they still make propellers [ look at the latest incarnations of Herks and Hummers]) and LTV (who, once upon a time, made an interesting vehicle called Corsair [both F4U and SLUF]). It is LTV that sits on the west side of NAS Dallas; they reworked A-7s in the ’80s. NASD moved to and became NAS Fort Worth JRB taking over the former Carswell AFB — home to General Dynamics, which is still cranking out F-16s

        Thus endeth the history lesson for the day.

    • Pamela

      There are only a few times a man needs to take it slow and steady.
      Getting ready to lay down some whoop ass on idiots is not the time to limit speed. You go in hard and hot.

      • JTC

        And even save the taxpayers some serious dough in the process. In just a few weeks DT has scared the bejeebus out of Lockheed Martin on that bloated F-35 contract and got an immediate reduction in delivery costs with a flock of them heading for Israel and a fresh batch -much cheaper than the last batch- for our boys…negotiating from strength they call that, along with putting America First. The PB County PW plant is the primary builder for those engines which likely explains that ramped-up activity there.

        • NotYetInACamp

          All of the buyers of the F-35 are getting price reductions. japan has even upped its order now, if i recall correctly.

          That theoretical F-45 for fighter superiority is also a thought that would make them rethink what they are doing.

          Yup. Quite a bit of nighttime activity over the bombing range recently. The pilots do need more flight time to achieve high proficiency than they were getting under the recent holder of the white house.

          • Kafiroon

            Sell all 35’s to anyone dumb enough to maintain it and fast track the 45’s. That means keep the 45 away from the bloat experts.

          • JTC

            Absolutely hit the afterburner on the Mustang, but that still means online post-Trump, fuck that!

            The Lightning is way imperfect as are all products of committee and questionable politics/agendas. But it’s in the pipe NOW and we need it NOW. And actually selling them to foreign govs is subsidizing ours…that’s the art of the deal, along with forced cost reductions and reduced/improved maintenance issues and practices. Might even see some similar improvements in the Raptor program.

            The Donald is no military or aeronautical engineer or expert. But I guarantee you he can put the fear of God into those that are and get cost and operational issues under control to bridge that gap and get shit done NOW.

            Kafiroon, I understand you are invested in the 45 as we all are less directly but no less importantly…and justifiably so from what I can see, it looks awesome. But in eight years we might either not be here anymore or be back in the hands of the Shadow (redundant).

            Ramp up, improve, and put to use the tools we have NOW!

    • I had a friend that worked in the boneyards out in arizona..he said he always knew something was coming based on what parts he had orders to pull and how urgent they were.

    • MasterDiver

      The fast burners aren’t the only ones ramping up. A lot more flying hours, especially night time, from the C-17s and at the local base. Keep’em flying Air Force, HOO-AHH!

      Zar Belk!

      • John D. Egbert

        Have noticed similar goings-on re the aviation (helo) units attached to the 101st Airborne Division based here at Ft. Campbell. Things that make you go “Hm-m-m-m-m.”

  • WayneM

    Targeted education with practical application… no wonder Javier is a phenom.

    • NotYetInACamp

      Practical applications are very educational was my first thought.

      And that was not Merida the target moved across the borderline was saying.

  • While I’ve enjoyed the P&W discussions regarding the F-35, I must remain true to my thought that the perfect deportation tool is either an air cannon or a trebuchet just on our side of the border, targeted to around 250 yards their side of the line. “Hey, they were in excellent health when we sent them back”.

    • Sendarius

      For some reason that makes me think of:

      “PULL!…”

    • John D. Egbert

      I’m kinda partial to setting up holding areas near military airfields where the illegals are processed in and sorted according to home nation. When a planeload (C-130/C-17/etc.) is achieved, load ’em up, fly ’em home, and leave ’em on the tarmac at their capital’s airport. Great cross-country training for Reserve units. And if the home country isn’t happy, there are Reserve fighter squadrons and refuelers that could use cross-country, escort and operational training, too.

    • JTC

      It’s a case of cause and effect, cmblake…

      The effect is we gotta build that wall and use your method on the ones that breach it.

      The cause is we didn’t vaporize those motherfuckers at the source so they never get close to that wall. It ain’t Mexicans coming across these days.

    • I have a better idea. Pay all those citizen ‘watchdogs’ (like the morons at that bird conservation area in Oregon last year) to watch the border, with guns, and shoot at los mojados. Buckshot in front of them as a warning shot, a shout of ‘Vuelve donde viniste ahora mismo!’. If that doesn’t work, another round of buckshot, a shout of ‘didi mao, penedjos!’
      If a 3rd effort is required…. well, people do disappear in the desert, don’t they.
      Sorry, but I’m getting mean in this part of my life when I read about two 18 year old ‘men’ raping a 14-year-old girl in school in Maryland. Mean as a snake.
      I am just fed up with it.

  • CaptDMO

    Home schooling is borderline?
    Depends where you fall on the spectrum.

    • Bill G

      This bit of homeschooling is being done on the borderline. And then, little Javier is wa-ay out past the edges. A gummint school would be child abuse for him.

      • Pamela

        Javier would be sent to the principal’s office for correcting the teacher on the incorrect facts and facets of the whatever subject was being taught.
        I can imagine him as a teenager in Sex Ed.

  • gafling

    The first thing that came to my mind was a trebuchet … force, leverage, distance travelled … that kind of thing. Alternatively the border could be effectively patrolled and secured by a squad of ED-209s.

  • Mort

    The new MXT 135, counter defilade weapon, which is
    now being issued to troops in the field, should be
    effective no matter who is firing it.

    Chris, if you are going to have Damon educate Javier, then a demonstration on the effectiveness of a relatively small force distributed over a small cylinder, say .308″ would be appropriate.
