Someone apparently leaked classified Chinese tank schematics to win an online argument (msn.com)

Fans of the free-to-play military video game “War Thunder” are so passionate about the game that they’ve taken to sharing actual classified schematics for real-life military vehicles in an effort to win arguments with complete strangers online.

If three make a trend, well, this is a trend. Because now there is another instance of someone apparently leaking classified military documents to make sure that their tank video game more accurately conforms with reality.

The popular armored combat simulator features modern land, air, and sea craft, and has a devoted following of roughly 50,000 players. And some of them seemingly can’t help themselves from leaking classified military data to make the gaming experience more accurate.

Women called ‘witches and warlocks’ in campaign mailer to voters. Here’s the response (msn.com)

A candidate running for supervisor in eastern Madera County named five citizens in campaign mail to voters, stating they are among an opponent’s most vocal “far left” supporters – and labeling two of them as “of the Witches and Warlocks.”

“The flyer has put a target on the back of not only myself, but also my children,” said Kriszti Mendonca, who described herself as a small business owner and community volunteer who ran a nonprofit called the Bass Lake Education Foundation for 10 years.

Mendonca and Sarah Roemer, who was also named by supervisor candidate Mark Reed as “of the Witches and Warlocks,” said they aren’t affiliated with any witch organizations – rather, they just attended a Witches and Warlocks Halloween paddle event at Bass Lake, where people dressed up in Halloween costumes.

The party of no more ideas.

A New York Republican who was endorsed by the National Rife Association just two years ago announced Friday he would no longer seek re-election, saying his recent support for gun control had effectively eliminated any chance of winning the GOP primary.

Rep. Chris Jacobs publicly bucked his party last week when he said he would back an assault weapons ban bill if it came to the House floor for a vote. On Friday, he said that new stance had cost him his political career in the Republican Party.

“If you stray from a party position, you are annihilated,” Jacobs said. “For the Republicans, it became pretty apparent to me over the last week that that issue is gun control — any gun control.”

From the end of the video: "...The guns that keep many of us safe."
I am completely unaware of any conditions that exist in the USA that require an automatic rifle to keep its owner safe. Are there riotous attacks requiring mass shooting into the mob in defense of a person's home or family? Are the persons who feel the need for the dubious safety of an automatic rifle planning on using it to defend themselves from other persons similarly equipped? What goes through the mind of a person buying an automatic rifle?

That was true back in the 60s and 70s especially if you lived anywhere near places like Spring Bayou where packs of feral pigs roamed wild in the back country. But you didn't need an assault rifle for that job. That's the part that is an outright lie.

Ohio House Republicans passed a bill late Tuesday that bans all transgender students from playing high school and college sports, and requires genital exams in any disputes.

Representatives voted on House Bill 151 on the first day of Pride Month. The measure next goes to the Senate after lawmakers return from summer recess. If the bill becomes law, it would take precedence over all current policies by high school and college sports associations.
The existing association policies, which aim to protect medical privacy and stress inclusion, take into account testosterone levels or the length of time an athlete has been transitioning, Cleveland.com reported. The new bill calls for an outright ban on transgender athletes.

Under the measure, if a player’s sex is disputed, he or she will have to present a physician’s statement about “internal and external reproductive anatomy” and testosterone levels. Students would also have to show an analysis of genetic makeup.
