Ahmed Mohamed is coming back to Texas, so he’ll have to set his clock back 8 hours

What a worthless dink

Is he legal?
Low profiles tend to encourage senior people into thinking the new lieutenant will become a noncontroversial team player in a world already on edge over "police brutality," real or imagined. That "somehow" reminds me of the military, where you could pass tests and make grade without any real ACCOMPLISHMENTS, just time-in-grade and ABSENCE of negative reviews.

Haven't had my first 16 cups of coffee yet but the wording above is a bit hazy to me. The clowns you mention above must be at the LT level implying they won't make captain if anything goes wrong. If so, the same sort of mentality exists at any two points on any promotion scale: the guy below thinks the guy above got there at least IN PART due to ass-kissing.

The terrifying wonderful thing here is that everyone is partly correct. I noticed dozens of cases in the military and also in business.

Sounds right.

We must remember that police departments are political in nature. The Chief is a "political appointee" hire by a mayor. OTOH, sheriffs are elected by the people and therefore more responsive to the citizens.

The end of Cameron could mean a return to gun rights.

Nigel Farage has called for firearm laws to be relaxed, calling the current ban on handguns "ludicrous".

The Ukip leader criticised the "kneejerk" restrictions on handguns imposed after the 1996 Dunblane massacre in which Thomas Hamilton killed 16 schoolchildren and a teacher before shooting himself.

The laws were brought in by Sir John Major, the then Tory prime minister, and extended to a total ban by Tony Blair's Labour government in 1997.

Asked about gun controls, Farage said: "I think proper gun licensing is something we've done in this country responsibly and well for a long time, and I think the kneejerk legislation that Blair brought in that meant that the British Olympic pistol team have to go to France to even practise was just crackers.

"If you criminalise handguns then only the criminals carry the guns. It's really interesting that since Blair brought that piece of law in, gun crime doubled in the next five years in this country."
And send him home with a goodie-bag filled with C-4.

And a preset timer handsome pocket watch.  One of those Trump, $30.000 knockoffs.

A major national pollster, which was typically very favorable to Donald Trump during the GOP primary season, the same pollster that on May 11 had Hillary Clinton with only a one-point lead (41-40 percent), now shows the bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor crashing to his lowest level yet.

The new Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Friday shows scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton defeating Donald Trump by a whopping 14-point margin, 47 percent to just 33 percent, while 20 percent said that they wouldn’t support either of the highly unpopular candidates, two candidates who have the highest unfavorability ratings in the history of polling.

Trump’s free-fall, along with his unstable mental status and fluctuating policies, has united both establishment Republicans as well as some principled Tea Party constitutionalists. Both feel that the liberal New York real estate tycoon will irreparably harm to both the Republican Party and the nation.

OK, we'll admit, Donald got a lot of attention, some good (against the GOPe, or said he was), some bad (restrict the 1st amendment & 2nd), some WTF (endorsements by Jerry Oh-how-he's-Fallen Jr, Alex Jones & Michael Savage).  Now it's gut check time, Trump-a-loons.

Trump is still wooing Sanders supporters - not conservatives, he's not even trying to hide he's not a conservative, nor belongs in the Republican Party.  What little GOP support Donald -HAD- is evaporating like the morning fog, and the few talking points you thought were GREAT, are just suggestions (to get your vote, nothing more.. art-of-the-deal-stuff).

GOPe was warming, now, in an historical, never-been-done-before, they are bailing enmasse on Trump - leaving cult-like followers as his only hope.   Even the Delegates are actively trying to figure out how to oust Donald gracefully - but expecting the pitch-fork wielding mob, regardless of the outcome in Cleveland.

Now for the complete destruction of the whole political nomination process, Hillary, the "Corruption Allegation Queen" is destroying the "No nonsense No-message Trump" in the polls.  Rather than listen to Ingram, Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage, Jones in desperate tone try to prop up this rogue candidate - please tell me why I should cast a vote for Donald, without mentioning the SCOTUS or HILLARY.   No more made-up stores about Clarence Thomas, or losing the Senate & House - I want to hear the "good stuff" that makes you feel GLAD Donald is the nominee.

I've heard the paid-for radio commentators go to great lengths defending & trying to prop Donald up - NO SALE.
I want the good stuff, the vision for America's future, the return to the rule-of-law, love of Constitution stuff (meh, I guess that'd be a flip-flop), none of the Tyranny, dictator stuff - just the good stuff.

:biggrin:  That's polite and close enough. That "start out" part is funny: didn't the Dims start out liking America? Marx they never abandoned.
Yep, we all know where the Dim party was headed from the start, but it was rags like the Nation that made the Dim party look sane.
But wasn't that always part of the formula?

That may explain a lot....

Also shows the brilliance of the Germans as well as expose how other nations were pursuing what was supposed to be a top secret project.
The Russians and Japs obviously knew what Germany was doing, we were just lucky German scientists recognized what side had the worlds best interest.

Funny, this is the first I'd heard about Japan's attempt at the bomb. I'd love to know who sold them the secret.

In 1938 Japan also purchased a cyclotron from the University of California, Berkeley.[7]

Still early in this cycle. Phil Robertson needs to change over, among many others.

How far left and corrupt is the GOPe when it's biggest supporter/spokesman bails on the Establishment?
Folks, I see the party collapsing, and by God, that's a great thing, makes it Right for the Conservative movement to seize the GOPe from these traitors.

Will, who writes for the Washington Post, acknowledged it is a “little too late” for the Republican Party to find a replacement for Trump but had a message for Republican voters.

“Make sure he loses. Grit their teeth for four years and win the White House,” Will said during an interview after his speech at a Federalist Society luncheon.

Will said he changed his voter registration this month from Republican to “unaffiliated” in the state of Maryland.

“This is not my party,” Will said during his speech at the event.

He mentioned House Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) endorsement of Trump as one of the factors that led him to leave the party.

Didn't they start out left of Marx, only in Dim party disguise?
