What is “Spaceport America” but a Political Classhole Slush-Fund?

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 4:52 PM

Facebook always yields instances of the Political Classholes getting caught with their pants down and their hands in the cookie jar —

Peter St. Cyr
Tuesday, November 24, 2020 at 10:32 AM

An Independent audit confirms serious operational and management problems at Spaceport America. I repeatedly told embattled Director Dan Hicks he could not write his own public records law. This facility was constructed with taxpayer money and needs to be transparent to avoid these kinds of problems in the future. Click to read the report here: https://osa-app.org/uploads/2020/66dacc30-9870-49f4-874a-f4b26d09aaa6/Spaceport Authority – Investigation of Complaint Final Report.pdf

And what exactly has been launched from “Spaceport America” besides a few suborbital flights?

Wasn’t Virgin Galactic the “anchor tenant” for whom Reichsgovernor Richardson built this particular elephante blanco?

From SpaceNews — Virgin Galactic declares Spaceport America ready for SpaceShipTwo, by Jeff Foust, 15 August 2019 —

Virgin Galactic didn’t give a date for when it expects SpaceShipTwo to arrive at the spaceport — WhiteKnightTwo will return to Mojave to fly it to New Mexico — but that when it arrives the company will start with a couple of glide flights to test those upgraded flight controls and to get familiar with the airspace.

Once those are done, “we’ll be ready for rocket-powered flights,” he said. While there is no set number of powered test flights planned before SpaceShipTwo is ready for commercial operations, Moses noted there are currently eight hybrid rocket motors stockpiled at the spaceport.

Two other SpaceShipTwo vehicles are under construction in Mojave. Moses said the first of those two should be ready to begin flight tests in 2020.

At this rate, will Virgin Galactic be ready to launch anything by 2120?

Considering Virgin Galactic’s pre-COVID glacial pace of operations where “Spaceport America” is concerned, on top of the Beer Bug-inspired shutdown mania, it’s probably safe to say that 2020 is a write-off at this point.

But there’s always 2021, right?

Go ahead and feel free to make that bet.

But hey, at least “Spaceport America” has a nice new lounge that Governess Chipmunk can use to host one of her COVID-non-compliant parties

For what it’s worth, that State Auditor’s report that St. Cyr linked to above is great fun, if you get your kicks by reading about some of the ways that the Political Classholes have fun at our expense.

Want Total Freedom and No Responsibility? Be a Democrat!

Filed under: Politics, Principles — Tags: , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 2:33 AM

Apparently, being a Democrat makes you immune to the Beer Bug. Who knew?

This immunity doesn’t seem to discriminate between the lefty-fascist “progressive” kind, the “conservative” or “libertarian” kind or the Republican-wannabe Establishment kind.

The DNC’s nominee for First Crook, Creepy Joe, is a prime example of the last kind.

From Kamala Harris’ Twitter feed — 8:20 AM ⋅ August 17, 2020

In that picture, it’s plainly obvious that this is a gathering of more than five [5] people, and that they do not appear to be practicing any “social distancing” protocols.

As the TV pitchmen say, “But wait, there’s more!

In this second picture, it’s plain to see that not only are they not “social distancing,” but they aren’t wearing the idiotic masks that they insist that the rest of us wear any time that we step outside of our homes.

H/T Joseph L. Roberts — Tuesday, August 18, 2020 at 8:01 AM

It seems like Eric July called it last month when he [sarcastically] said in a video clip that “the virus is woke” and able to tell what your politics are, and only infect those who aren’t lefty fascist types of the sort that are working for the DNC, its affiliates and candidates.

After all, when you’re a lefty fascist whackjob, you can get away with just about anything, as Larry Correia writes:

Larry Correia
Monday, August 17, 2020 at 2:59 PM

When a lone nut job maniac goes on a mass shooting, he represents all gun owners (even if his manifesto is all pro gun control). Even if he’s a raving left winger or has no coherent philosophy at all, he represents all republicans/Christians/white men/whatever group the left has a hate boner for this week. And the existence of this lone nut maniac irreparably taints half the population of America with guilt, even if they have nothing in common with him at all.

However, if somebody wearing a hoody and a ski mask, looting, burning shit, while chanting fuck the police and flying the hammer and sickle, gets caught on video beating someone with a baseball bat… HOW DARE YOU ASSUME THEY ARE ANTIFA?!? HE DOES NOT HAVE AN ANTIFA NAME TAG ON! WHERE IS HIS ANTIFA ID CARD? HOW DARE YOU SMEAR THESE INNOCENT MOSTLY PEACEFUL PEOPLE WITH THE ACTIONS OF A FEW BAD APPLES?!?

This may sound crazy, but just remember. If you are on the right you share collective guilt for every bad thing which has ever happened, even if it was done by people on the left. And if you are on the left, you are free from sin because you Care Harder.

On the individual level, if you are on the right, you are responsible for things that other people’s ancestors did 200 years ago. But if you are on the left, you aren’t responsible for what you are doing right now.

Also see this video clip, where the guy holding the gun on the woman in the car says (no way that I could have made this up) —

“I am not a cop, I will fucking shoot you. I’m a Democrat. I can shoot you because Democrats get away with everything.”

“No one wants to take your guns,” v. July 3, 2020

Filed under: Media, Politics, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 4:27 PM

From the Albuquerque Journal, Friday, 3 July 2020, p. A11 OP-ED (“SPEAK UP!”)

KUDOS TO the Santa Fe County Commission for passing on the purchase of AR-15 weapons for the Santa Fe sheriff’s department SWAT officers. . . . Instead of just waiting, as Sheriff Mendoza seems inclined to do because of “the current climate in the nation,” I recommend the funds be redirected to a buyback and destruction of this type of weapon from civilians who have no legitimate need for them.

DingleBerry Express Shuts Down!

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 1:17 AM

Recently, KOB News reported that the DingleBerry Express[1] has shut down, at least temporarily, due to COVID-19 hysteria —

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- The City of Albuquerque continues to adjust services to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“It’s very serious and important that we all as a community work on some of this,” Mayor Tim Keller said

Public transportation will begin operating on a Saturday schedule, starting March 28.

The mayor also announced Albuquerque Rapid Transit (ART) service would be suspended on March 28.

“The ART route, that whole thing will stop this weekend,” Mayor Keller said.

Never mind that the DingleBerry Express (some call it “Albuquerque Rapid Transit” or “ART”) isn’t anything more than an overpriced remaking of the Central Avenue “Rapid Ride.”

If you look at video clips and photographs of the DingleBerry Express busses, you can see “766 RED LINE” and “777 GREEN LINE” on the top of the buses’ front ends. Just like on the “Rapid Ride” that preceded the DingleBerry Express.

In fact, the “Rapid Ride” “Blue Line” (Route 790) still exists, and still uses the same sort of buses that the “Red Line” and “Green Line” used before the DingleBerry Express was created.

The best case that we can expect from this is that the ad hoc demolition derby along Central Ave will be put on something resembling a hiatus until at least Easter weekend (Friday, 10 April 2020), as that’s when the Governor’s “shelter in place” order is supposed to expire.

“The local 66 route will continue. That’s a part of the Saturday operating schedule.”

So Albuquerque’s Number One rolling bad neighborhood and disease vector continues its operation. Just wonderful.

As for city parks, Mayor Keller said they will be open but playgrounds will be off limits.

“The state is asking people not to go to parks, there is an exception I believe for exercise,” Keller said. “We are officially closing all our playgrounds.”

The mayor said the Albuquerque Police Department can enforce the governor’s stay-at-home order.

That last line there is what separates Albuquerque’s First Crook Tim Keller from his freelance comrades.

Mind you, this schtick of Keller and Lujan-Grisham isn’t new in any sense. It’s the same attitude displayed by French King Louis XIV when he said “L’etat, c’est moi” [“I am The State,” in other words, “My every utterance is law.”] and had the phrase Ultima Ratio Regum [“the final argument of kings”] cast onto the barrels of the cannon fielded by the Armée royale française — “Do what I tell you, or my guys will point this cannon at your home and light it off.”

Stupor Tuesday 2020 — Overhyped and Underwhelming

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 3:23 AM

Image H/T Stephen Carville

For what I’m seeing at about 3 AM, it looks like Gropey Joe Biden has won a lead on Bernie Sanders, with Sanders coming in second.

Whichever of them is the eventual DNC nominee matters not much to me, as the chances of my casting a ballot for either of them is as close to zero without actually being zero.

On a side note, Amy Klobuchar and Petey Buttigieg dropped out and endorsed Gropey Joe. Did Joe cop a courtesy feel on each of them as a consolation prize?

The best news of the night comes in two parts:

  1. Bloomberg, a real-life Duke of New York, came in third place after he blew through about 500,000,000 of his personal cash reserve while pitching his promotion of victim disarmament policies as a good thing. Serves him right. He appears to be re-assessing whether or not to continue a seperate campaign, or to back Gropey Joe. To be fair, the Duke did win American Samoa.
  2. On the Republican side of it all, Mr. Bill the Original Weldist got his head handed to him by T.rump. At this time (Wednesday, 5 March at 3 AM), Mr. Bill doesn’t seem to have received more than ten percent (10%) of the votes cast in any state, including his home state of Massachusetts. To date, his highest vote total seems to be that of the News Hampshire primary, where he got about 13-14 % of the votes cast. Even there, for every vote Mr. Bill got, T.rump got SIX votes. But that doesn’t stop him from sending out fundraising emails saying “this is our chance to take down Donald Trump.”

On the LP side of the 2020 presidential camapign season, Lincoln Chafee seems to be coming in a solid eleventh place, and deservedly so, as Chafee, like Mr. Bill who reportedly encouraged him to run as a “Libertarian,” doesn’t seem to have the slightest clue of what the Libertarian Party is supposed to be all about. (I for one am still waiting to see any evidence that Mr. Bill cares or ever did care about the Non-Agrression Principle. Not holding my breath here.)
