Japan's Giant Aircraft Carrier Was the Largest Warship Ever Sunk by a Submarine

At 69,000 tons when launched in 1944, the *Shinano* would have remained the world's largest aircraft until the 1960s. But that was not to be. Instead the *Shinano* earned a distinction of a different kind: the title of largest warship ever sunk by a submarine.

A Basic Principle About Drug Laws

Jacob G. Hornberger at - 16 hours ago
[image: undefined] Drug laws bring into existence drug gangs. it’s just a basic principle of economics. If you like drug gangs and the violence that comes with them, then you should support drug laws. if you oppose drug gangs and their violence, you should oppose drug laws. When government enacts a drug law, the assumption is that everyone will comply with it. Drug addicts or casual drug users will presumably say, “Golly, they just made drugs illegal. I guess I had better stop now because otherwise I will be sent to jail.” That’s not the way life works. Drug addicts need their drug... more »

US Military Fraud Endemic in Overseas Operations

Wayne Madsen at - 16 hours ago
[image: undefined] History shows us that when empires over-extend themselves, military commanders become semi-independent warlords who usher into place systems of graft and corruption. Such was the case in the Roman Empire in 193 A.D., when Emperor Pertinax’s Praetorian Guard – a combination personal security force for the emperor and elite special forces unit that distinguished itself on distant battlefields – sold out the emperor in exchange for a bribe from an aspirant emperor, Didius Julianus. The Praetorian Guard assassinated Pertinax and swore their allegiance to the new emper... more »

Thanksgiving: Giving Thanks to God

Rebecca Terrell at rss - 16 hours ago
[image: thanksgiving-giving-thanks-to-god] The impiety of many of our country's present leaders makes it easy to forget that the United States was once governed by devout men who acknowledged the one true God and their debt to Him in everything. These statesmen were courageously unafraid to give public thanks to God. It is refreshingly edifying to review the role our founders played in establishing Thanksgiving Day.

Why did Ayn Rand dump Kant for Spinoza?

Robert Mayhew has talked about the changes that Rand made in 1959 edition of *We The Living* in his book *Essays on Ayn Rand’s We the Living*.

NPP, DPP, KMT: An Eternal Golden Braid

Michael Turton at The View from Taiwan - 23 hours ago
*Hittin' the road again this weekend after a week struggling with the flu.* Watching corporate power gut the US economy and in the latest piece of predatory success, internet neutrality, would make me cry, if it didn't make me laugh. Americans will soon be paying even more for less service, while here in Taiwan, we get unlimited internet for peanuts, stable and fast. My friend and sharp observer Aaron Wytze used Taiwan's superior internet service to tweet: 1. NPP released their 2018 party strategy: party plans to run candidates in 19 of Taiwan's 23 electoral areas. Big pushes in Ce... more »

The Pentagon Wants Artifical Computer Platforms The Ability To Learn

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 1 day ago
*IEEE Spectrum: **DARPA Seeking AI That Learns All the Time* Earlier this month a self-driving shuttle in Las Vegas patiently waited as a delivery truck backed up, then backed up some more, then backed right into it. Inconveniently for the roboshuttle’s developer Navya, this happened within hours of the shuttle’s inauguration ceremony. The real problem is that the shuttle can’t learn from the incident the way a human would: immediately and without forgetting how to do everything else in the process. The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is looking to change th... more »

"A Revision Of Belief..."

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 day ago
"Consider a turkey that is fed every day. Every single feeding will firm up the bird's belief that it is the general rule of life to be fed every day by friendly members of the human race 'looking out for its best interests,' as a politician would say. On the afternoon of the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, something unexpected will happen to the turkey. It will incur a revision of belief." - Nassim Taleb

Great read. If I could change a few key words, you'd be amazed at the similarities. We are talking about NOAA, right? Change climate change to over fishing. Enter the same players from the bureaucracy, to the well paid EnviroNGO's, the same allies in the press. Why are we importing over 90% of the nations seafood? NOAA's making a killing, while killing off the small boat family fishing fleet, the smallest carbon footprint of all food production. The Irony.

How One Really Big Tank Helped Save Russia from Hitler Capturing Moscow

Sebastien Roblin at The National Interest - 1 day ago
*Sebastien Roblin* *History, Europe* Stalin's secret weapon? In the first six months of Operation Barbarossa, the brutal Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union, Panzer tanks overran hundreds of miles of Soviet territory and reached the outskirts of Moscow before winter weather and reinforcements from Siberia brought a halt to their advance. In a period when the Red Army seemed on the verge of collapse, a lumbering forty-eight-ton heavy tank that could absorb German tank shells like so many spitballs was one factor that bought it badly needed time. The Red Army was an early practitio... more »

Why the Korean DMZ Would Be One of the Deadliest Battlegrounds Ever

Kyle Mizokami at The National Interest - 1 day ago
*Kyle Mizokami* *Security, Asia* In the event of war, North Korea’s plan is to use overwhelming firepower and speed of action to conduct a “One Blow Non-Stop Attack.” The recent defection of a North Korean soldier across the demilitarized zone (DMZ) that separates the two Koreas highlighted how difficult it is to cross from one Korea to the other. Fenced, mined and patrolled by soldiers from both sides, fortifications and large concentrations of combat-ready troops will make the Korean DMZ in the event of war the deadliest place on earth. The current demarcation line between Nor... more »

In a comment to my previous post, reader Deborah Harvey asked for the recipe I was using to make trifle for Thanksgiving.

The Semiotics [?] of "But Gorsuch"

Mark Tushnet at Balkinization - 1 day ago
I've seen reports that at the recent Federalist Society meeting "But Gorsuch" stress balls were a popular item. To quote Fezzick, "I do not think [that word] means what you think it means." I take it that it's a riff on "But her e-mails." But, in my experience, "But her e-mails" is a way of identifying something that was offered as a good reason for doing something that turned out to be quite bad. (The Urban Dictionary definition is in that ballpark -- "A not-so-subtle way to change the subject when you are about to be faced with being wrong about something.") So, it seems to me, th... more »
