Well, I'm glad somebody has finally identified Rick as the flaming liberal that he is. Clearly his unwillingness to take up arms and throw down the government demonstrates the Kerryist demons hiding in his rotten soul. Those who fear the paltry inconveniences of immediately dismantling our entire governmental, economic, social and security infrastructure are part of the problem, not the solution, and shall be the first against the wall once Robinson gets this whole thing organized. To the ramparts, citizens!Comment Posted By Jazz Shaw On 19.07.2009 @ 13:11
You are obviously a faux Republican and a hater of America. Or a neocon. Or a lefty. Or... something.Comment Posted By Jazz Shaw On 19.03.2009 @ 15:08

Gift card from where? I mean, if it's Amazon or something, that's nice, but if it's from Bed Bath and Beyond, I'm not wasting all the postage to mail you an .mp3 file.
VISA Gift card, I think.

I think I've just taken your column and invited the entire civilized wolrd to go to war with me.

Just had to link to this at TMV. People are coming up with suggestions about other things we might find 82% agreement on. Ironically, one of them was George W. Bush's 87% approval rating in November of 2001.Comment Posted By Jazz Shaw On 14.05.2008 @ 16:10
Iran nukes Israel, then Israel launches her nukes at Iran. Nuclear winter for all and two new parking lots of cooling glass in the Middle East. I liked the previous comment saying "You can't bomb knowlege." The nuke club is growing, slowly but surely. That horse has long since left the barn. We can slow it down, but I can't imagine stopping it entirely.
This is a test for the international community that it is failing. It takes more than "knowledge" to build a nuke. It takes expertise and a high tech industrial infrastructure. The technology may have been known since 1945 but there are some extraordinarily difficult steps to turn a lump of 100 lbs or so of HE uranium into something that won't fizzle. Ask the NoKo's. For that reason, there is still time - probably more than the Israelis are saying who are only concerned about Iran's ability to convert enough uranium hex into enriched uranium. A crude device - the gun design we used on Hiroshima - might be within reach of the Iranians in 3 years; if their centrifuges work as planned (a big if) and if they can somehow evade detection by the IAEI and take their uranium that has been enriched to 5% and further the process until it is enriched to the 90% threshold for weaponizing. Then they've got to experiment very carefully to see how much of their HE uranium is needed to achieve critical mass. Then they need neutron inhibitors. Then they need a delivery system.
At any one of those steps, they could fail.
The point being, Jazz is that the international community can make it extremely difficult for the Iranians to continue their weaponization program by initiating strict sanctions on materials and travel by engineers and scientists to keep them from their goal while insisting on a strict inspections regimine.
The genie is out of the bottle but his powers are non existent unless he is enabled by the rest of the world.

Rick, if you get a chance, try to see why g-mail is immediately bouncing back every time I try to respond to one of your e-mails to me today and yesterday? I mean, I can certainly understand if you blocked me... I certainly would... :-) But I can't answer any of your notes for some reason. I'm blocked.
Or you can give me a call. If you don't still have the number, Ed does.Comment Posted By Jazz Shaw On 2.05.2008 @ 14:48
OMG I have to stop reading Rick's blog. I'm going to have that freaking song stuck in my head all day now. Fantastic lyrics, though Rick. I could use a chuckle today as an ice storm rages outside here in New York. (Global Luke Warming still in full effect.)Comment Posted By Jazz Shaw On 28.03.2008 @ 06:16
Wait until you see what they do to Taiwan. And none of our candidates even has a published position on what to do to the current administration's "One Chine" policy, which does nothing but feed the status quo.Comment Posted By Jazz Shaw On 25.03.2008 @ 06:58
