    Is the middle dog humping the helicopter?

    As to beef, home grown grass fed is always better.

    • If it is, it’s huge relative to the helicopter. I expect they are simply running back to wherever they are needed, and it is a perspective shot.

        Oh bummer. I was hoping there would be a safe sex discussion regarding automaton critters and presidential candidates. Considering how sourpuss faced Mooch is looking these days, I’m surprised she is not availing herself of them.

        • Mooch probably can’t find a fleshlight that’s small enough to give her a good experience.
          Nope, everything is spelled correctly.

  • JTC

    Lookit them dawgs frolickin’ at the mention of steaks!

    Might better stick with Texas homegrown though, maybe he already does since the ones at his pressie were “Bush Brothers”. Heh.

    Stick to the bull you know, DT, and leave the ‘Q to Wade and Red Beard.

      As a ridiculous nerd, the first thought through my mind is of course trying to work out how much velocity you need on a 16 oz ribeye to make that work…

      • interventor

        Frozen or cooked with bone in?

        • MJ Larkins

          Frozen, definitely frozen…

        • H_B

          Ribeye has no bone, and frozen seems like cheating. Of course, in launching a “meat-sponge” at a target, you might have to get up to velocities where heat from air friction becomes an issue; it might end up cooked anyway…

          • interventor

            Had a 14 Oz ribeye two weeks ago bone in.

      • Acceleration, actually. Impulse= delta-p = m* delta-v. I’ll work with a physicist friend to see if we can figure out what it might be, if you’re really that interested. Given the frozen-chicken gun they use to test aircraft windscreens, there might even be experimental data already out there…

        • H_B

          I wouldn’t go to any trouble over it. I just thought it was funny how my mind reacted to a(n admittedly great) pun.

          • H_B

            It reminds me of walking into a pizza parlor with a bunch of friends in Engineering College. The restaurant has “large”, “medium”, and “small” pizza pans up on the wall with prices in the middle of them. Everyone in my group whips out Graphing Calculators to figure out which is the best value per square inch of pizza…

          • Reminds me of walking into a pizza parlor with a couple of jocks in ol’ Mizzou. The clerk asked us if we wanted our pizzas cut into six slices or eight. One of the jocks answered, “Six. I don’t think I can eat eight.”
            Kind of a forewarning of today’s UMC.

          • PatD

            H-B I figured that out before high school–almost always the biggest pizza is the best deal. Yes, I’m an engineer.

          • H_B

            Usually. In this specific case though, it was the medium (if I recall correctly).

        • Bill G

          I’m pretty sure the chicken gun is intended for thawed carcasses; it’s to simulate the impact of still-flying fowl on canopies.

          • John Greer

            Yeah, but the joke is that when we introduced the Brits to the technique, we later had to tell them to thaw out the chickens.

      • A sharp filet knife (Rapala) for shaping one edge, and a tray full of liquid nitrogen. Kind of a meat tumi.

    • Works real easy if the steak is made of blackjack oak. Doesn’t require much velocity at all. A simple hammer will do the trick.

      • B Woodman

        OOOHHHHHH. . . … you mean STAKE!!!!!
        Ahhh, a simple enough spelling error, easily made, easily forgiven.

        • Spin Drift

          Nope meant steak and I wasn’t thinking that you had to cut it out of the cow first.

  • WayneM

    Not sure whether to encourage you to keep drawing the Donald or not. The old stock GOP seem to be aligning against him.

    • B Woodman

      The “old stock GOP” (otherwise known as GOPe RINOs), don’t know wether to shit or go blind against The Donald. Their lack of Republican style action in Kongress led to we, the people’s, disgruntlement. And now that two outsiders have come along to upset their power structure and kick over their apple cart, they’re scrambling to attempt to stay relevant. And failing miserably at it.

    • NotYetInACamp

      All of the GOP that the old stock GOP drove away or ignored are mainly supporting Trump.
      The old GOP is now only interested in a continuation of their power group to the detriment of the greater mass of the Republican Party and the greater mass of the people.
      The people in and out of the GOP that Trump attracts to vote because of the ideas and policies he has stated , and the greater objective and goal of bettering the lot of America and Americans, have brought people from all over America to support his efforts. He wants to solve problems and set up aspects of the country so people are better off and mostly by their own efforts. He actually does not do the identity divide politics that Democrats are known for. He wants all to do better.
      The only listening almost all politicians do is just pandering for the moment. That is not Trump. Trump will discuss issues to see how they can be solved.

  • Iconoclast

    I’d have to insist, as a matter of strict interpretation, the next President’s first foreign policy achievement will put him at least five ahead of the bobblehead behind the Resolute Desk: iran deal, early withdrawal from Iraq, Syria & Libya. So -4 to +1, minimum! Floody bucking feckless fraud in a tutu.

      But for an F, your alliteration is perfect.

    • B Woodman

      Yeah. Things continue to go “south”, Texas can go back to calling itself a Republic.

      • Pamela

        A lot of hard work for all of us to be in a Republic again.
        Texas shouldn’t have all the fun.

          Texas would be a start. Someone has to be the precipitating seed in this supersaturated solution.

    Getting back to the ‘toon. Do you think that Wade would really agree winDsock? I envision Wade as a G*d fearing Constitutional Constructionist. I think a character who has spent his adult life gaming the system and influencing the rules would not be on Wades friendlies list no matter how loud he screamed “I’m the Greatest.” I believe that he would side with his states senator and can appreciate character that will stand alone, poke the beast in the eye and call duplicitous behavior just that. Wade knows chrome-moly lugnuts when he sees them.

      Spin,Cruz is probably the right man for the job,but at some point you have to get somebody elected. Right wing conservative Christians are a minority in this country.
      Remember when Romney said his biggest challenge was that 47% of Americans would not vote for him? With Cruz,it’s probably 75%;what are we gonna do-vote ‘harder’?

      • Old Codger

        “[W]hat are we gonna do-vote ‘harder’?”

        Nah. Just follow the old Dem formula, “Vote early. Vote often.”

      • Spin Drift

        WWWD? He’d back the honest man who believed that Lady Justice wears a blindfold for a reason, that the sweat of your brow belongs to you, that you are born to your own agency and are the commander of same.

        I had the great good fortune to live in Dallas and Houston for a few years. A unique set of individuals who believed that “leaving me alone” is a G*d given right.

        I’m actually a native born New Yorker, Trump is a blow hard bully used to getting his way all the time. He surrounds himself with sycophants and slurpers. Note that the true measure of a man is how he treats his inferiors when no one is looking. It is not pretty in winDsock’s domain.

        Don’t play into the puppet masters hands, they want a Cankles-winDsock battle in the fall. They win either way. Both have proven that they are buyable. There will be deals and you will lose, inch by inch life, liberty and the ability to pursue happiness. Remember that the German people were happy when Der fuhrer became Chancellor and was going to make Germany Great Again. The inevitable only happens if you let it.

          I take it you don’t like Trump.

          • Spin spells it WindSock. Fifth grade name-calling. I’d agree with your view.

          • Perhaps the National Enquirer piece will change some minds, but I won’t hold my breath.

        • NotYetInACamp

          Can’t say who Trump surrounds himself with, but, he does not get businesses up and running and able to not be there by using sycophants and slurpers.
          Aside from doing work for properties he bought i have never had personal experience with hm as I no longer was in that particular business. At one oceanfront property, the construction was near the pool I was told that one of the workers was trying to get out to get lunch and back in his lunch break and was yelling at another worker to hurry it up so that they could get out and back in time. Donald happened to be standing nearby talking with the manager and heard the exchange. Trump called the guys over and told the manager to “feed these guys.” They were well fed for further week that they were on the job site. That little act showed wisdom and concern at several levels. the obvious, they stayed on the job site and could keep the work going. They would feel better about the job and perk up their concern and awareness. Donald had to know that buying meals was letting the workers keep their after tax money for other uses. The costs were negligible as it was likely taken out of the same stock they regularly bought. The manager did her job. All won. Capitalism won again.
          The guys had no idea who Donald Trump was.
          The job site work force was … well, that would be using identity divisions that the progressives want us to use. They were human, and legal to work in the USA.

          I ask the questions. How does an ethical person survive and prosper in the unethical totalitarian country that we have become? What lines do you draw that put one out of business.

          If you think Donald is buyable, then you have not listened to him and understood him. You may think that you have.
          Have the deals that eroded our national wealth and productivity systems been so wonderful so far. How will TPP put us all under foreign chains?
          Trump took that full page New York Times ad 35 years ago against the treaties that stripping us of our productive capacity and the jobs that went with them. He has consistently opposed those treaties ever since. Now he did take advantage of them and opened businesses around the world. But he opposes the treaties. Golf courses are businesses.

          By what I recall my Great Uncle told me (He was awarded the Iron Cross in WW1) Trump is not like Der fuhrer. Trump is like my Great Uncle who was almost arrested in Germany when he spoke out against Hitler. It was only a Nazi Brownshirt coming to warn his sister about his impending arrest that may have averted that arrest. Later, in the USA, at Madison Square Garden, my Great Uncle spoke before about 5000 person meeting of the German-American Bund. He spoke against Hitler and against Hitler’s stated policies and what was occurring in Germany at that time right before WW2. My Great Uncle’s mother was almost immediately arrested and thrown in jail in Germany.
          The “Brownshirts” now have taken possibly 9 nations at the behest of Soros and Obama. Soros and Obama have Brownshirts and Mao PC squads on the streets and in the schools and businesses doing their terror now. The side of Mr Trump is that of being against the continuation of that type of action. Trump is trying to empower Americans and get them back to being the productive people that we are.

          Trump is standing against the illicit power now in place.

          Reagan came from behind and won due to his ideas.

          • billf

            re: Trump is against the power now in place; I personally don’t agree with ( almost) everybody in politics today.So ,if you’re not a politician,you’re half way to my vote already.
            He’s stirring people up,upsetting both parties.That’s exactly what we need.If he gets elected,and doesn’t do what he promised,we’re no worse off than the last 20 years.

      The more I check around other places, read their ‘facts’ and arguments…
      The more I am doubting Cruz not representing GOPe.

    • H_B

      Character?

      Cruz attacked Trump and blamed him for Soros-paid agitators starting a riot in Chicago.

      Cruz blamed the Brussels bombings, while the bodies were still warm, on Trump saying 24 hrs earlier that other NATO members should contribute more to the alliance.

      Cruz sent mailers to Iowa Carson voters telling them they needed to vote for Cruz or they could lose their voting rights.

      Cruz sent phone calls to Hawaii Rubio voters telling them Rubio had dropped out of the race and should vote for Cruz.

      Cruz accepted Beck’s anointment as the New Messiah.

      “Lyin’ Ted” isn’t just a short nickname; it’s a label for what he’s displaying.

      • H_B

        Then there’s that Enquirer story. Sure, it’s the National Enquirer, but they’re also the people that brought down Gary Hart, Jesse Jackson, and John Edwards.

    OT from yesterday:

    JTC, nobody’s trying to restrict free speech. But words, like actions, can have consequences. That principle is clearly enunciated in the libel and slander statutes. Such statutes do not violate the 1st A.

    Jorge’s choice of words greatly offend me. An it were possible, Spin would already be in contact with his 2nd to arrange the place and date. Actually dueling could work today. All it would require is a pair of single shot paintball guns. Being smooth bore and employing spherical projectiles, such devices would very well simulate the pistols men such as Hamilton and Burr would have used. Being non-lethal, such sport would be entirely legal. With the addition of safety glasses the likelihood of injury would minimal. Plus the outcome would be instantly apparent.

    Only a blind man can fail to see the color of another’s skin; but only a fool draws conclusions from that single observation. “Mulatto” is an obsolete term unfit for use in civil discourse. Oh, and it has nothing whatsoever to do with “political correctness”. It is a matter of good manners and proper public decorum. It is Jeremiah 6:15 in modern times: “Are they ashamed of their detestable conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush.” Modern society has no shame and has forgotten how to blush.

    • steveb919

      No mater how you slice it our present president is half white and half black. He just forgot about the white half. Thus “mulatto” obsolete or not.

      • S Hooks

        Whether or not your language, or more precisely, how your language reflects your attitude, is acceptable, is entirely up to Chris; luckily for you he’s been inclined to be rather lenient. If you insist on being pugnacious about it, however, you really ought to educate yourself.

        Obama is not a mulatto, i.e. half-white and half-black. His African parentage is from the Luo tribe of Kenya, and is about one-quarter black and three-quarters Arab, from the Arab slavers who interbred with the blacks of that region. In other words, he’s only one-eighth black an octoroon, not a mulatto, and even better, his ancestors were slavers.

        • billf

          Y’know , Hooks,your explanation is interesting and educational,but the point is -the president is neither black or white. Mulatto is just a term some people still use to describe such an individual.
          We ‘used to could’,(excuse my Southern) call people who weren’t white ‘colored’ which was the best possible description,but I bet y’all wouldn’t like that either.

  • JTC

    OC, while we’re on Jeremiah, here’s 5:21 ‘Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not’

    “Libel and slander” refer to written or spoken defamation of character or reputation…completely irrelevant to your claims here. But attempts to restrict speech by violence or threat certainly do violate First Amendment freedom of speech provisions and could be criminal, be careful with that.

    Words are words, obsolescence and fitness are subjective, and definitions and claims of racism and other isms are selective…that’s the whole etymology of Political Correctness. Police your own but don’t threaten my right or Jorge’s to call a spade a spade. And when such claims are used as a pretext to commit violence, the user can expect to be met with employment of the speaker’s second amendment rights to protect his first…exactly as planned and provided by the founders.

    Silliness aside, we all know it’s political discourse we’re really talking about; the attack from all sides on the Trump phenomenon are fine if kept to verbal and written expression. DT is in his element there and has proven that he can more than hold his own; he’s a fake or a mole or a fascist or a Nazi -that’s the go-to for frustrated critics when all else rolls off like water off a duck- but it’s when violence is encouraged, fomented and committed that first amendment rights are denied. That’s exactly what happened in Chicago and what Ted Cruz endorsed in one of his many diarrhea of the mouth windbag moments.

    Jorge exercised freedom of expression, and very well if a little crude, but certainly within his rights. If you are offended, say so or ignore him, but don’t adopt the methods of the real fascists and racists in this country by denying his right by force or threat of it. There’s logic and reason, and there’s force and coercion. Employing the latter to repress the former is the very antithesis of freedom; don’t fall for it…the end does not justify the means. Remember what Jeremiah said above, popularized thusly: “There is none so blind as he who will not see”.

  • Spin Drift

    WWWD stand for What Would Wade Do. I think he would be trying to figure out who is pulling the levers to elect which face of the same coin. I also think that Cruz has been more consistent in his view points than Trumps evolving positions. A man has a right to evolve but I’m afraid that he may evolve right back to where he started.
