We'd know.

So the Media can't wait to tell us all that Hillary won the Debate....Handily

I gotta say that I didn't see it that way...

But the one thing I keep thinking is that if she had won the debate "handily", then they wouldn't need to tell us.

We'd already know

Y'know....

I am completely against any iteration of "Stop and Frisk".

There is the pesky Fourth Amendment thing....

But why is it that no one will admit, or touch or even just fucking state the obvious:

The police stopped young black men under "Stop and Frisk" disproportionally simply because they got results...

Stopping carloads or groups of white dudes didn't yield the drugs and weapons IN PROPORTION....

Fishermen fish in lakes where the fish are, not in barrels where they aren't.

Willie Sutton, a notorious bank robber in the 30's, 40's and 50's, was reported to have said, when asked  "why do you rob banks?"...."Because that is where the money is"

Same same with "Stop and Frisk":

You can see, by their manner, the way they are dressed, etc.,  be they white or black or hispanic, which individuals are likely to result in a fruitful search. I can, if you are observant, you can, and especially experienced cops can.

If the fact that they choose not to waste their time on clean cut kids of any race offends you...if the fact that there is a higher proportion of clean cut kids that are white (and to a lesser percent, hispanic) and a lower proportion in the inner city black kids offends you...then I am sorry your pollyana viewpoint is hiding reality from you.

Again, I believe that Donald is wrong on 'Stop and Frisk".....

But why won't anyone tell the truth?

Wake

My first thought upon waking was:

"Get this Damned cat off my feet"

But my second one was:

"The Donald didn't really strike at any of the openings Hillary left him."
Followed with "Why didn't he?"

I mean, Computer Security, National Defense (Benghazi?) the "plight" of African-Americans, the failure of the Democrat leadership in cities, the list is long. I mean, her health alone could have taken an entire segment....

And he didn't take any of the openings.....Why Not?

So....

Our Second Amendment rights will be in the hands of 2 possible people.

A bad one
And a worse one....


As Tam said to me over lunch a few weeks ago. You have 2 choices:

A New York Democrat,

Or a New York Democrat.

Stop and Frisk?
No Fly list?
Terrorist Watch list?

Any of those statements would disqualify a candidate as President in my book.

So we are left with the choice of the lesser of the two weasels.





Racism

Yeah, that's me...

Helping a friend at a gunshow. He is a dealer, but doesn't have a store. Gunshows only. He has 8 tables, so needs some help to keep an eye out when it gets busy.

His policy is that you have to be 21 to fondle the pistols, 18 for rifles and shotguns...since you have to be that old to purchase them. I can let a father handle a rifle and hand it to his 14 year old son, but if you are a 19 year old man,  you can't play with the pistols or revolvers.

So I am discussing the merits of an XD vs Glock with a very nice gentleman, nice guy, mid 40's...wife or girlfriend alongside.... first gun for both of them.

Up walk 2 young men late teens, maybe early 20's. Pick up a SW Shield... I ask politely if they are 21.

"No".

"Then I am sorry, the owner says I can't show you pistols unless you are of age to buy one, so you gotta be 21 to pick 'em up.".

"It's because I am black, ain't it?" (they were both, in fact, black).

The dude and his lady who I had been talking to looked at the kids. Dude says "He told you why...." (Dude himself is also black). "Don't see no Racism here".

Kinda shut the kids down.

He chose and I sold to him the XDS in .40.  I also sold 'em on the idea of some NRA Basic Pistol Training.

I appreciated his support, but the kids kinda pissed me off.

Stupid fuckers

I hope it costs them a lot.

What total moronic idiots some folks are.....Do they really not understand how such things work?

Unicorn

So at the gunshow yesterday, I found a gun that I had been looking for:

A Beretta TomCat 3032 in STAINLESS. (I have one in the Matte /parkerized finish, but my sweat eats non stainless guns...I have to clean it twice a week in the summer months, so I was looking for a stainless one)

When they were in production they weren't common. now that production is currently on hold they are kinda hard to find.

Found one in a showcase. If it has been shot, it is less than a box full. like maybe a mag, if that. I think it was a drawer gun.

He wanted $530 which is about what they go for on GunBroker (plus shipping and FFL fees).

I offered $350. He said "no". I walked.

Passed by again (he was at a corner table) and he offered $475. I countered with $375. He said "no". I walked.

Saw him once more about 45 minutes later....he offered $400. I offered $399. He looked at me  and smiled and the deal was done.

Private sale. (Which was good because NICS was down most of the afternoon).

Cash talks.

Transparent

Odd.

Seems that the State Department isn't gonna release the "recovered" emails from Hillary's server until after the election.

I doubt it will make any difference....those who are gonna vote for her won't care....and the rest of us won't vote for her no matter what.

But still.

Not Charlotte citizens

or, at least, most of those who ARE arrested aren't:

Who Is Behind The Riots? Charlotte Police Says 70% Of Arrested Protesters Had Out Of State IDs

Note: OF THOSE ARRESTED...There were an awful lot of people in those riots....

But still....

This could be a deal breaker for me:

Third party is is then...

Trump "Praises 'Stop-and-Frisk' Police Tactic".

Sorry, I can't support this. Not at all. The Constitution is what it is....It applies to everyone. scumbag or not...Joe clean or Tyrone the Ghetto Rat.....Whigger wannabe or Jose the Vato. No matter who it is, the Fourth Amendment applies:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

The Constitution comes as a package deal. All or nothing. 

If Trump can't get that message, then he isn't my man, and won't get my support.

Tonight oughta be "interesting"

If you are in Puerto Rico, at least.

Seems the power generating/distribution company that covers most of Puerto Rico had a MAJOR fault....and a substation caught fire at a substation, leaving the majority of the island without power.

Tonight oughta be interesting for the poor folks living there.  I bet it gets....."sporty" in some neighborhoods tonight. And maybe tomorrow night.



As a side note, seems that a small, but significant, number of hotel and other businesses that had generators never balanced them, nor did proper preventative cleaning/maintenance on them....and they caught fire under load....which is a lesson we can ALL learn from.  

'tis odd:

See, many years ago, there was this thing they did called "Lynching" wherein a man (apparently often black) was accused of a crime and then, without a trial, often on sketchy evidence, was hanged...often after being beaten by a crowd.

Black people still see a noose as a sign of lynching, and often want nooses removed from Halloween display and such (even though they want free speech and such).

Yet, what do they do when a black man is shot....especially by a policeman (no matter what HIS race).....

Yep, they jump to conclusions....they assume the man shot was innocent, and that the officers had no reason to shoot. Further, they rely on statements posted on social media, with absolutely no verification that the statements are true...Since it is a cop that did the shooting, it must be racial....it must be unjustified.....and they don't wait for the evidence to show what happened, but jump to a conclusion.... Truly, a lynching...only the violence happens later that night....Which often leads to a riot..... "Civil Disobedience"...often becomes an excuse to loot. (and they wonder why no one wants to invest or start businesses in their neighborhoods?)

What I find odd is that it is always black crowds that exhibit such behavior....not whites, not asians nor orientals....no latins, nor any other racial group.  Why is that? And why do the police and the city leadership allow it to happen?

Yes, I know, pointing this out makes me a "Raciss". Don't care. Not anymore.

You can't blame it on Poverty either....Lots more white folks live below the poverty line, yet they don't riot....(and they generally obey the police and don't do anything stupid when caught or stopped, and therefore don't get shot as often either...)

Ain't no Gass ....How you gonna get to work, man?

Lots of folks have no backup and are wondering if they will be getting to work tomorrow and through the week...

And this is just ONE pipeline. A big one, and it carries gasoline exclusively, but still. Lots of folks being affected by ONE pipeline.

How much do you stock for happenings like this?

I have enough to last us 3 weeks plus or minus. At normal rates of consumption. Plus the truck...diesel there and I have about 6 weeks or so with that vehicle. And those are without any conservation efforts.

Think about it.

Not

The bombs detonated and/or found in NY, New Jersey and such are "intentional" (duh) but ARE NOT TERRORISM....

Of course they are fucking terrorism, you idiot. Who, exactly, is the terrorist remains open to investigation, but it most definitely was "Terrorism".




Share this

With all your Liberal friends....Link


Ask them to esplain the lying "Inconsistencies in the story" used to explain all of this odd behavior.


Something you should see?

Peter thinks so.

Go over and decide for yourself.

It all comes down

To who counts the votes.

Everything else is just Window Dressing.

"Critical Infrastructure".

Seems to me that it is the purview and responsibility of the states....No one else. ESPECIALLY not the Obama Administration.

Those who cast the votes decide nothing. 
Those who count the votes decide everything.

Yep

THIS pretty much covers the whole thing with Hillary and her "Pneumonia"....

But the press isn't asking the hard questions.

And won't.

But, sadly why isn't the Donald?  Why isn't he or his spokespeople asking? Getting it out there so people will think a bit....

One wonders.

Sounds blazingly simple

But it really isn't, for many....

Or maybe 3 times.....






From 15 feet away too.







No shit?

Really, who would have thought THAT?

You mean the Fix was In?

Gosh

Indeed:

"I have news for some really ignorant sonsabitches.
This country was founded by law breakers and there is a long tradition of ignoring laws in this country, tens of thousands of them daily, especially ones that tell someone they can't have something that was previously common.

Apparently they have never heard of Prohibition."

15 years ago

I was on my way to work when the first plane hit....... We were gonna get an early start on sealing a parking lot.....try to get some work done before it was too hot.

Surely just a terrible accident...?

Then the second one hit.... and the fires grew...We all watched in terrible fascination on the TV as the towers fell and 3000 or more of our countrymen and women died.

I told the kids watching with me that what they had just witnessed would change the world and our country....and that whether we realized it or not, we were at war....

I was right.

That day changed the way we travel, and gave terrible powers to our government. It took a few months, but the enemies of freedom were waiting, and took advantage of those events to fundamentally change our country.

It showed us the hatred Islam has for the Culture here in the West...in the US in particular. It brought to the forefront that a person cannot be US citizen and a good Muslim.

It gave us the Patriot Act....a lie if ever there was one.  It spawned an ever growing Surveillance State...and began conditioning the public to always being watched....and to allowing their freedoms to be temporarily bypassed in the name of "security".

It also made me proud of my countrymen.....we didn't massacre other Arabs...nor chase anyone wearing a hijab or speaking with a Pakistani accent out of town. Yes, life was uncomfortable for those folks for a few days..., but in other places they would have been dead hours after.....Americans held to the American values.....and treated immigrants correctly and with honor.

********************************************

There are still a lot of questions about who was involved in the attacks....yes, we know about Mohammed Atta and his co-conspirators....but were there more? Were the Saudis involved? (Probably.....at least some in the government were) was it a conspiracy with the Bush administration? Maybe (but I doubt it....)

Either way, this attack opened the door to the fundamental changes that we, as a body, accepted in the behavior of our Government to the it's citizens.....

I may, someday, be able to forgive the Saudis or the Muslims for the attack on my country....and my fellow citizens.

I will never be able to forgive them for the changes they wrought in my country.
Ever.

I will never forget that Muslims everywhere cheered the damage done by the attack on my country. I will never forget the silence from the Muslim community here in the US, and I will never forget that the mosques in the US where the 9-11 terrorists worshiped had to know that they were planning something....and stayed silent.  I will never forget that the  Pakistani (Paahkistaahni? (Obamas pronunciation)) government was complicit in helping Osama Bin Laden hide for years. I may only be one person....But I and many of my countrymen share a remembrance of that day.

You should too.

Never forget.

Ever.
