Show just how moronically stupid Inslee is in not thinking through how this might impact THE STATE'S HIGHEST PAID EMPLOYEE.

Ha, I planned to pose this same question. Inquiring minds want to know.

Why is this evidence of devolution? This is evidence that the Jap "destroyers" are now fully operating as the carriers they were always meant to be. AND that the USMC is operating from them. I don't know why this should surprise anyone, as they are our ally.

Sure it is a big deal, and maybe I'm missing something here, but the connection to devolution is a stretch.

LOL my young female cousin keeps posting about that and my response is WHO F-ING CARES. This meme is perfect.

VP of Tech here. Everyone talks about getting "the routers" from the county, but the logs (as aggregated and analyzed by a SIEM tool like Splunk) are what that really means.

We stood up Elastic in my company for this same purpose and it has been a Godsend.

Anyone giving you flack over this are either uneducated, shills, or Chinese bot farmers

EDIT -- there is some nuance here. I usually answer the Joint Chiefs vs Combatant Commanders confusion from an operational perspective (where your head also was). But the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs IS in the chain of command for the nuclear gold codes. So technically if you look at the question narrowly, Milley does have some authority here. Doesn't forgive him for talking to the Chinese though...clearly treason if true.

Norm MacDonald on battles with cancer:

"I'm pretty sure, I'm not a doctor, but I'm pretty sure if you die, the cancer dies at the same time. That's not a loss. That's a draw."

Exactly. Sooooooooo many people don't understand the difference between the Joint Chiefs and the operational side (the 11 Unified Combatant Commanders)

The jury is in as far as I'm concerned: Corman is clearly part of the problem

Who makes a treatment is irrelevant. Does it work? Does it have side effects? And what does it cost? Those are the variables in play here that people care about.

That could have legit passed for a classic Henry Rollins track.

Jovan being in it for Jovan isn't necessarily a bad thing if Jovan's goals align with the goals of the American public.

It is good to have transparency on that attention-craving dynamic though.

Yes Biden/Bernie is a much stronger ticket than Biden/Harris. His choice of her made zero sense then, and still doesn't today. She's universally unlikeable.

Personal opinion -- it is exceptionally fair to ask you the "do you need THAT one" question. However as long as you can justify, we need to be supportive. It's a bit of the old "trust but verify" mentality. However we also need to understand the answer you are giving, and know when you are BSing us or not. It's why in my role I can't just be a business person, I absolutely have to have a background in the tech side and know when to lean in versus when to let you guys just do your jobs.

Having said that, in my experience engineers almost never throw BS. Facts and precision are baked into your DNA. Software developers on the other hand...

Exactly my point.

The confluence of all that (particularly on the software side) plus business, financial, and political considerations is where my job lies. I rarely push back on the engineers from a design perspective...but I do usually get to ask "what do you need to build it, how many people do you need, for how long, and how are we paying for it?"
