history of this publication goes back further than any of us will
remember….Throughout the history of this book, it has been called many
different things, ranging from Band Bible, Song Publication, and even
The Unofficial OSUMB Handbook. The songs in this “item that does not
exist” have been passed down from generation to generation during
I-dots, bus trips, Beer Busts, and the occasional bored sober free
time….Take it with you on trips and to parties….But never leave this
out of your sight.
Tic Multiple witnesses stated that a special newsletter named “Trip
Tic” was produced by an anonymous member for away game trips. Two
copies of the newsletter were distributed to each marching row.
According to most witnesses, this publication included disparaging
information about members and sexually explicit content, including
sexual activities of members. Two witnesses stated that some issues
included females and males listed by attractiveness ratings. One
witness stated that an issue included a “Marry, Fuck, Kill” list.

the handbook offers a very representative selection of bawdy

As a fan of a B1G rival to osu, I will concur with Ralph Gizzip. Their band is freaking talented as hell. They do the most incredibly tough halftime shows and other bands, though very good in their own right, don't come close. This is the only area I will ever compliment the enemy on and it is richly deserved.
Never been any different there... My wife tried to get in back in the mid-70s and was directly told "you can sign up and come to class but you WILL be failed as we DO NOT allow women into the OSU marching band." She played sousaphone and instrument storage was in the basement but only the men were given keys to the elevator requiring carrying them up 4 flights of stairs to the practice room.
What kind of training would the Feds give them?

but for completely different reasons.
not worried about "potentially fatal encounters with illegals"...I'm
thinking more along the lines of a bad precedent being set. Namely, the
same argument for deploying troops along the border of TX can (and
would, do you trust Gov. 'Moonbeam' Brown?) be used by other state
governors to deploy troops against protesters at "Send the @$#@$@
illegals home" rallies.
You're absolutely correct on the ROE. That'll tell
Truly, we're living in interesting times.

Last time I looked, Nat'l Guard belonged to the governors, until and unless they are federalized. Guardsmen are trained, by the same folks who train the Regular forces; many Guard units are combat veterans of the WOT. As to the second comment, Guard troops have been deployed by State and Fed govt against rioters - Watts, Detroit, MLK riots, peace marches in the 60's. What's the big deal? Because a Republican governor is doing it? I'm sure the NYT would think it just fine if Moonbeam sicced them on a Tea Party meeting. Lt. Col. Gen. Tailgunner dick
FWIW, some think posse comitatus prevents the Guard from doing anything more than admin tasks like in the last Guard border callup, where the Guard was not armed and had no arrest powers. I was in the Washington DC NG '67-70, and since it was the NG of a Federal District, we were in fact Federal troops. We were called up for state occasions and also for every riot and peace demonstration that hit DC in that period. For all the riots and peace demos: 1. We were armed to the teeth, although newspapers tried to infer we were not, and we had ROE's that allowed lethal force under certain conditions, and 2. We were sworn by the mayor of DC as Special Police and had arrest powers. Unless Buraq federalizes the Texas Guard, Gov Perry, as their commander, can allow them to be armed and can give them arrest powers assuming there's no conflict in Texas law. Lt. Col. Gen. Tailgunner dick
Posse comitatus only applies to troops in federal status (i.e., acting under Title 10 U.S.C.) The National Guard, when called up by a governor, falls under Title 32, and since they're not federalized, posse comitatus does not apply. They then can assume whatever duties the governor gives them, including law enforcement. However, if the Feds activate the Guard, then they're operating under Title 10, and posse comitatus applies. They cannot do law enforcement directly, but they can provide support to law enforcement (logistics, communications, etc.).
Then there's the money angle. If a governor calls out the Guard, the state has to pay for them. That gets pricey in a hurry. That's why Gov. Perry has been after Obama to call up the Guard -- so the Feds pick up the tab.
Alex Kozinski, chief judge of the Ninth US Circuit Court of Appeals, calls the current system "inherently flawed" and says states that want to execute inmates should return to more "primitive—and foolproof—methods" of execution, NBC reports. "The guillotine is probably best but seems inconsistent with our national ethos," he writes. "And the electric chair, hanging, and the gas chamber are each subject to occasional mishaps. The firing squad strikes me as the most promising. Eight or 10 large-caliber rifle bullets fired at close range can inflict massive damage, causing instant death every time." [Full]
Actually, the Brits - when they were at the top of their game - probably had the best idea.

My druthers for punishment of heinous crimes such as rape, murder, arson resulting in death, terrorism, and similar or related assaults on people who did not deserve disfiguration, debilitation, or death has always included a proviso by which the victim(s) or NOK(s) of the victim(s) figure significantly into the time, place, and manner of the just desserts.
I would have no objection to allowing the spouse, parent, child, or sibling of a murder victim choose and carry out the punishment by whatever means seems most appropriate.
If the NOK or victim elects NOT to participate in inflicting pain or dismemberment or death upon a perpetrator, volunteers should be sought from the general public. I'm fairly certain that our prison systems can find adequate numbers of sociopaths or psychopaths to bludgeon assholes to death or surgically remove the tallywhackers of rapists with claw hammers or eviscerate terrorists with a circular saw.
You're hinting at a few important societal issues here, Rodge. Let's lay them on the table.
Executions are essential, because some people are too dangerous to be set loose in public. Caging humans for life is inhumane and far more savage than imposing a quick death.
Executions should never be cloaked. Unless they are staged as an educational public spectacle, the decades of effort and expense are all but wasted. There are no privacy issues because the dead guy has no further concerns about his privacy. This applies to lesser crimes as well. For example, when police attempt to snatch a camera, they should be given one free. And be forced to eat the entire device in the public square. Naturally some long-term dental problems and short-term breathing problems may ensue. Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.
Of course there will always be problems with trying to perform executions by non-lethal drugs. So let's just stop using narcotics that are designed to produce blissful unconsciousness rather than death.
Firing squads are always better guillotine executions: More noise and less mess. Plus, government employees get confused keeping the right heads and bodies together for internment. Firing squads also offer much more opportunity for public involvement. Never a shortage of volunteers.
Even with volunteers, I feel there are moral and practical issues with assigning members of the public a duty to kill. Instead, we should put this task to the condemned themselves. Once sealed into an execution chamber, they should be given all the time they need to beg God's forgiveness and push their own button. Automatic in situ cremation would be a nice feature to remove any concerns about efficacy of the execution.
Opponents of the Death Penalty make the valid point that execution is often falsely applied and uncorrectable. We must face this criticism squarely. Any policeman or prosecutor who manufactures false evidence or withholds exculpatory evidence contributing to an unjust execution is a 1st degree murderer and should be executed too. If they can't bear that standard of performance, they can get a real job.
I say we hang the perp (after being found guilty by a jury of his peers) by his ankles. Then, give all the NOKs fungo bats and let them have at it. If there are no NOKs, then randomly select half a dozen citizens down at the welfare office waiting for their SNAP cards to do their duty. Crime rates would drop overnight and the police could enjoy their doughnuts at Dunkin's in peace.
In a perfect world, criminals would be punished for their capitol crime during the attempt.
Since the world isn't perfect, we make do, and the best methods of a quick, painless execution - such as dropping a 70 ton block of concrete on a criminal - are usually too messy for polite folks to witness.
Fly the condemned 400 miles offshore, dump them off the ramp with parachute, then it's up to nature. No killing, no witnesses, no Monday morning quarterbacking about how long or how botched the execution was. Condemned who are realists will decline the parachute. Progs can't object because it's recycling at its best; ashes to ashes, dust to fish food. Lt. Col. Gen. Tailgunner dick
In one of Robert Heinlein's books, he wrote of a society that punished wrong-doers with a judicial infliction of EXACTLY the same crime they had committed. The example given was a man who had hit a pedestrian, causing the necessary amputation of one leg. The state had him laid out on the same stretch of highway, a car driven over his leg, made him lay there the same amount of time the victim had, and then took him to hospital to have his leg amputated. I daresay this would deter quite a number of crimes if this was applied here.
I have trouble feeling sorry for these guys who undergo an execution that is somehow "botched". After all, they had no sympathy for their victims while they were killing him or her or them. If those criminals and their apologist want sympathy, they can find it in their Funk and Wagnall's between shit and syphilis.
After the Civil War, Arkansas had a judge named Isaac Parker, aka "The Hanging Judge". If he sentenced someone to death, usually withing 24 to 48 hours later, that guy was swinging at the end of a rope. No endless appeals, no whining by bleeding heart liberals, no bullshit letters in the newspapers about what a nice guy he is, and, for damn sure, no 25 years after conviction and sentencing to the actual execution of lying around living off the taxpayer in relative comfort. Juts a short walk from the courtroom to the gallows. That should be the norm today.
Old testament (and present day middle east) stonings were done so that no single member of the community could be singled out as the executioner. No rocks bigger than a fist, etc so the whole community had to participate and the whole community was the executioner. No angst over who dealt the fatal blow because everybody contributed. If the crime was a threat to society, society dealt the punishment.
Sunday's episode, as Breitbart TV explained, two of the characters
crashed a Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) fundraiser at the George W. Bush
Presidential Library that they said only lets in "a**sholes." The
fundraiser ended up turning into a bloodbath:
While HBO's Award winning "True Blood" a popular vampire drama has had
a long-running narrative with the bad guys cast as southern
conservative politicians, last night's episode took it a step farther,
calling Ted Cruz supporters a**holes and offensively referring to
conservative woman in eveningware as "republic**ts"
When two of the main characters, vampires Eric Northman and Pam De
Beaufort, are planning to crash a fictional fundraiser for Sen. Ted
Cruz (R-TX) held at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas
they are warned “They only let in a**holes.”
While dressing for the event in cowboy hats and Western evening attire
Pam De Beaufort says "Oh my God I'm a republic**t"
And finally De Beaufort enters the gala proclaiming "Of all the horrible things I've seen in
the last hundred years this could be the most disturbing."

laboratory. Lefties fired from their alphabet channel venue,
because of outrageous leftist screed, are routinely picked up and
nourished by this cable channel —Bryant
Gumbel, Bill Maher, et.al. But guess what? Pam De Beaufort will
find this terrifyingly disturbing.
At any rate, I've been looking to cancel my Verizon cable premium
channels, and this will get me off my duff. By the by, look for
in congress to try and block Murdoch's takeover of TW. Losing
control of media messaging is truly a stake in their hearts.
Hmmm, considering that the stock holders in Time Warner, esp. the institutional investors, are probably not all that thrilled with the decline in advertising revenue there is probably some puckering in the pants in Hollywood.
So what is a Republic**t? I find it hard to believe that Sarah Palin would associate herself with the word "cunt" - since Bill Maher said "there is no other word for her" during one of his routines in 2011.
The Sopranos is still running? Srlsy. I had no idea. They lost me during one of the, seemingly yearly, salary demand delays, and the entire cast -- the late Gandolf included-- began with the Hollywood political posturing.
assume this is authentic. It appears the right engine and wing area
took the hit. Note the camera operator is able to record the moment of
impact in the first 2 seconds of this clip. Note the smoke burst left
behind on impact with the #2 engine area. There is an 18 second delay
(speed of sound delay) due to the distance and altitude of the
explosion. Note that the pilots are maintaining wings level, the
airplane and burning wing still intact, in what appears to be an
uncontrolled descent from 33,000 feet when the video ends at 1+19sec.
This begs the question, how did they know it was there? Obviously
someone was monitoring the sky with radar & someone said "shoot it
* This is not
the action of a bunch of Russian sympathizing Eukranian civilians.
* This is the action of trained professionals
question is not only where did the missile come from, but who was
operating the search radar and who has the authority to approve or
order the attack.
Question Primo: how did
this video operator know to have his camera running just prior to the
missile explosion? How many people run their camera in the sky looking
for an airplane cruising at altitude so high that most are not visible
to the human eye? -cuzzin ricky

Another thing about the video: you can hear the camera operator breathing, but there is none of the "holy shit" (in any language) exclamations you would expect to hear from someone who just happened to film a plane being hit by a missile.
The person who uploaded the film concurs with Anon.
" Dear non-russian speaking youtube members. This is not Malaysian plane downed in Ukraine. On this video you can see the Ukrainian military plane AN-30 downed by pro-russian separatists a couple of days before MH-17 accident.
If you are interested we can create new videos about situation in Ukraine with english titles and subtitles so that you don't get confused."
That was a manpad hit at fairly low level...most likely trying to locate the very large missiles of the "Buk" system...Ant-30 are a dime a dozen, you wont use a ten million dollar missile to shoot down a $100,000 old surveillance, maybe artillery spotter plane. That was just a terror hit, to make Ukrainians pull back some.
As for the triple seven, any airplane heavy at 350 is right next to it's "coffin corner" where your stall speed only differ by a few knots to your VMO, where the wings are about to rip off... A cranky auto pilot that input too abrupt commands can make you lose 10,000 feet in a few seconds. It's pretty eerie to watch your altimeter wind down so fast...but since there's no big hole punched by Putin, you recover and climb back...that crap only happening outside radar coverage, of course...wink...wink...

Aside- All this could have been resolved. JW the computer
geek set me up with a lovely Windows 7 installation
package. All I had to do was install it on my 3T disk. But,
oh no. I decided I didn't like that disk for, various reasons,
and prepared to send it back to Amazon while my 30 days was still

over to JW geek, and he will try to find out to what exactly was fried,

Obama, Queen Elizabeth, and Vladimir Putin all die and go to hell. While there, they spy a red phone and ask what the phone is for. The devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth.
Putin asks to call Russia and talks for 5 minutes. When he is finished, the devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so Putin writes him a check.
Next Queen Elizabeth calls England and talks for 30 minutes. When she is finished, the devil informs her that the cost is 6 million dollars, so she writes him a check.
Finally Obama gets his turn and talks for 4 hours. When he is finished, the devil informs him that the cost is $5.00. When Putin hears this, he goes ballistic and asks the devil why Obama got to call the USA so cheaply. The devil smiles and replies, “Since he took over, the country's gone to hell, so it's a local call.
Manning tore into former Bush speechwriter Michael Gerson for
criticizing Tea Party conservatives who, he claims, seek "to break with
the past in a very different manner - repudiating 80 years of
institutional development and reinventing American as a nation that
rejects the substantive role for regulation or a social safety net.”
In other words, Gerson implied that the Right should simply accept the
steady centralization of government and erosion of individual liberty
caused by the "progressive" policies of Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow
Wilson, FDR, LBJ and Barack Obama.
Outraged, Manning argues that the GOP should utterly reject "the
Regulatory State [that] is killing our nation, destroying the very
concept of private property and consigning us into a Kafkaesque world
ruled by an army of Lois Lerner clones."
Can the GOP survive itself?
The Limbaugh-Gerson-Manning debate points to what is likely to be the
defining issue of the post-2014 state of American politics.
By over-reaching across the domestic policy board, Obama has all-but
discredited Big Government as a viable governing agenda. The ugly
consequences are accelerating as his second term enters its terminal
That reality makes the debate within and without the GOP over repealing
or reforming the wreckage of the progressive era the decisive
discussion in American politics for years to come. Participants and
observers should act accordingly.
as I gobbled up everything George Will wrote in the 80s and 90s, there
was an undercurrent of liking big government too much that bothered me. And George
Will back then was pretty much the voice of conservatism.
Bush 41 and 43 were somehow able to incorporate big government into
their brand of conservatism. It was worrisome. The Blogger
"Spoons" and I argued over which of us had been the first person to
call for Dubya's impeachment -- in early 2001! because of his proliferate
spending (I'm sure it was me). That canker blossom has burst ,and there's pus everywhere.
