Just learned one of my best friends in CAP posted that he has resigned effective immediately. I hope his wife doesn't follow suit. I've done much fursuiting in support of their unit over the years.

The shading and bordering experiment is done. It doesn't look fantastic because it was just a learning exercise, but it turned out better than I thought and taught me a lot.
including to keep the back of the work neat.

Pictured above: A Goddamned Mess. Seriously stitching through the mass of thread was a trial and a half all by itself. Making more effort to keep things neat in future.

Trump day 122
Our man Trump and the current leader of Israel are good
friends so we can expect to see Trump getting the royal
treatment.

Trump makes the statement that he wants peace as every
president hast 50 years. 

Apparently Trumps giving the Russians the info we got from
Israel isn't going over well behind the scenes. Time will tell
how it affects how much informatioin we get from Israel in
the future. Trump and the leader of Israel tried to give the
impression Trumps meeting with Russia didn't hurt the info
partnership and trust. Behind the scenes the people providing
info are worried that Trump won't protect it.

Trump was bad mouthing the agreement with Iran to stop
their weapons program. Trump said Obama helped save
Iran's economy is wrong. Obama made the agreement to
stop or slow the nukes Iran was gettng close to producing.
Economic snctions weren't working fast enough on their own.

Trump made the statement he wouldn't allow Iran to have
nukes. This would likely lead to war. Their labs are underground.
It would take an invasion to destroy it along with any misssle
program they might have.  I hope we can find a peaceful way
to deal with nukes and missles, not war.

N Korea is still firing off missles, and claims they can hit american
military bases. The Trump administration is still working to find
a peaceful solution.  One wonders how long it will last.

GOP
The GOP is working on their health bill in the senate, and likely
their Tax cut bill they want to call tax reform. The health and
tax bill both are designed to cut billions in taxes to the top
2 percent of the american rich.

The public best keep the phone lines and town hall meetings
going or the GOP will cut millions from programs to help the
poor. Including health care for kids and food programs.Cuts to
mdicaid that help[s the elderly and disabled. They claim it's
all about making the programs viable, but I think it's
all about cutting taxes for their rich friends and supporters.

I suppose many people will have to suffer and die before the
public understands what the GOP is up to. There is no reason
we can't take care of the needy inspite of GOP claims.

Elections. Trump is already putting ads on TV bragging about
how much he is doing for the working class. I saw on that
said he was making it easier for young people to go to college.
Hopefully it's not another university scam.

gaming discussion / Re: Skyrim - Ulfric or Empire? (Potential Spoilers)

Personally I tend to avoid that whole deal simply because it's not really my business in most cases, after all what Argonaian or Kajit would typically have personal stakes in the war?
Well any of the ones that lived or worked in Skyrim, for a start. Or those with Nord friends. Or those with empathy to other people.
Plus the Thalmor and the Khajiit have some pretty strong links (if built on the Thalmor being liars to the khajiit, they are still there). And the Thalmor are involved in the war.

Yeah, They both have blatant problems but honestly, I'm more interested in seeing what they make the Dragonborn out to be in ES6. Since it's his decision how the war goes on to do, how would they decide what happens to Skyrim in that manner. If they even acknowledge it at all even.

The Stormcloaks are in it for the Nords, plain and simple. They want the right to worship Tiber Septum(I think)/Talos as they please. Keeping out Kajit/Argonians from their cities as well as others they see as inferior or untrustworthy. Sure they got the Patriotic aspect to it and that can make things seem right, but right and wrong are the same thing for different reasons.

The Imperials on the other hand, simply want to avoid the war with the Thalmor who are clearly superior in both numbers and equipment. It certainly doesn't help that they just wanted to execute you for no real reason at the start but again everyone is different. (we all can agree that that general lady is a huge jerk if not worse.) Still, both sides helped you escape Helgen, so at the end of the day it still isn't easy to say who should be helped or not.

Ultimately it's the Character's choice, and I say Character and not player because it is a Role Playing Game, and while you certainly can play yourself that's just limiting the dozens of other story-lines you exclude yourself from. It's the Character's choices that determine the outcome, and as such it would depend on who or what you're playing as.

Personally I tend to avoid that whole deal simply because it's not really my business in most cases, after all what Argonaian or Kajit would typically have personal stakes in the war?

general non-furry discussion / Re: What really "grinds your gears"?

I present an aerospace topic for the local group on the third meeting night of the month, but received an email that someone else would take up the mantle this week. Because AeroEd needs to be fresh and dynamic so we retain membeship--or something like that. So we sat through an hour presentation on RC model planes.

The old shiney airplane models that appear at random over the years, often crowding out all else, have yet to take to the sky when anyone is looking. Somehow these will provide the sole motivation to keep members on the roster a bit longer. Somehow, getting young people to rise at O-dark-thirty on a Saturday to carpool across county lines just to fly someone else's model plane for a few five-minute intervals is going to work when they can make the same effort to fly in an actual airplane for almost a half-hour.  I do not share this mindset. Sorry.


Exactly why I never joined any of those clubs.
