    What strikes me about that picture is that he is wearing a wedding band. Shared values when we initially assume otherwise.

    • Good point! I hadn’t even noticed the wedding band. Truth is, I try not to make fun of hipster culture very often because they’re not all completely in leftist lock-step, and it’s bigotry, straight-up to assume things based on appearance. I mean, honestly, look at me!

      Also, Gavin McInnes was a total hipster before becoming a sane and indispensable conservative voice. It happens.

  2. Sorry, who is it and wwhy does he grace our open thread?

  3. The old Lockheed C-130 Herky-Bird. From Vietnam to every place they need it today.

  4. Aside from the death, the destruction in Iraq ain’t pretty, either.
    As many have observed since Obama launched his own personal Iraq war, there is something rather farcical about the latest US intervention in the middile east, namely that US weapons are being used to destroy US weapons, captured by and in possession of ISIS jihadists. As Reuters summarizes the situation, rather poetically, “Islamic State’s captured an enormous amount of U.S. weaponry, originally intended for the rebuilt Iraqi Army. You know — the one that collapsed in terror in front of the Islamic State, back when they were just ISIL? The ones who dropped their uniforms, and rifles and ran away?They left behind the bigger equipment, too, including M1 Abrams tanks (about $6 million each), 52 M198 Howitzer cannons ($527,337), and MRAPs (about $1 million) similar to the ones in use in Ferguson.”

    In other words US taxpayers are now paying for military missions, in which US taxpayer paid-for warplans and missiles are used to blow up other US taxpayer paid-for tanks, artillery, MRAPs, and various other weapons of death.
