    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/teenager-woman-stabs-rapist-droitwich-worcestershire-police-search-fights-off-self-defence-a8340381.html Strangely the police haven't charged the girl for stabbing the ghastly shit that tried to rape her.....Are they slacking do you think? No nor me. This happened on my local patch, so I'll be watching events very, very closely.

    The turret base does protrude by about 6-12" or so above the roofline (don't be fooled by the fake roof that's stood off the hull, this is visible on the bow gunners hatches), which would save a small but significant amount of weight. Holding a ruler up the screen I figure it's about 0.3-0.6 m^2, so something on the order of a tonne for a 2.4 t/m^2 armour array (random number, corresponds to 30cm solid steel so around the right ballpark). This is just a ballpark for the frontal armour, the upper row of side armour could also probably be dispensed with for a flatter turret saving further weight.

    Let us not forget that the Obama administration also tried to call unemployment a good thing. It was an opportunity to spend time with the family, or pursue hobbies that you had let slip by without all the stress of having to work all the time. I believe they used the term "funemployment". Also, in that article they finally point out the bullshit numbers manipulation that was happening under Obama, but claim that it's happening under Trump (and it might be, too, who the fuck knows). I'm not surprised by any of this, though, considering how much the left accuses everyone else of exactly what they themselves are doing.

    Two things spring to mind on reading this: 1) There is a cogent and internally coherent argument to be made that a falling unemployment rate isn't necessarily a good thing. Low unemployment rates per se are not always an indicator of optimal economic health. They might indicate that a lot of people are stuck in jobs that aren't the most productive ones possible, and future businesses might have a harder time getting going because there is no pool of available workers to draw on. That's assuming things are on the up and up; the numbers could be gamed in a number of ways, like adjusting the number of people who are considered to be "looking" for jobs, or by placing people in economically meaningless make-work jobs. However, this does need to be balanced against the fact that employment has substantial pro-social externalities. The optimal employment rate for keeping everyone sane and happy is probably a lot higher than the optimal employment rate for best economic growth. 2) I don't fucking care lol. The economics spokesman under Obama tried to claim that the recession wasn't as bad as it looked by trying to pass off the first derivative of the unemployment rate vs. time as the unemployment rate. Trump drumming up buzz based on ambiguous economic indicators that are at least actually true is peanuts compared to the bullshit that Obama would spout that everyone was supposed to just accept. The establishment is a pack of murderous liars and thieves, and they've proven their incompetence over decades. If they're bitching and moaning that Trump is going to burn everything to the ground, then fucking good. They're in closer proximity to Trump than I am, they'll catch on fire first.

    I see Oliver North is now the new President of the National Rifle Association. Well, if there's anyone experienced in making sure weapons get into the hands of undesirables over the express wishes of Congress and the Federal government, it's Oliver North! ... ... What? Too soon? ... And of course, Wayne LaPierre is continuing in his lucrative job as Vice Grand Vizier.
