"the idea of a union without borders inside, also needs a functional border control at the external borders"

THe Europeans are just now figuring this out...

Since the Dems/Liberals seem to follow the Euros (for some reason they worship the Europeans style of governing and such.....) does this mean that WE will finally get a more secure border?

Austria threatens tighter border controls unless EU tackles migrant crisis....

I'd sue for the interest.....

and add penalties for non-payment. Then sue for interest on the penalties....just like the State and Fed IRS does...

Lottery winners aren't paid in Illinois because of budget issues....

One would think that the Lottery would be funded properly....but apparently, like the rest of the state's finances, it is a giant Ponzi scheme....

So...

back in 1992, on this day,,, with the aid of some CIVILIAN negotiators, Kevin Harris surrendered. He would later be acquitted of all charges.

If you've been paying attention to these posting, you'll have a timeline.

Think about it. It could be you next time.

Sommat to think about

.

Who is gonna do it next time:

Certainly not the Euros....

HERE.


My Grandfather always said that the US succeeded and would grow and be strong, while Europe would stagnate and die because all of the really adventurous, smart, strong individuals (and their genes) moved to the US, leaving the weak sisters behind.....

Making plans for the weekend?

Please remember to misbehave responsively.

Stirrin' the pot again:

So they are still using Katrina to show how whites were the cause of the Black suffering in the days and weeks after Katrina.......Just because they didn't want a bunch of people wandering about their town.....refugees. Kinda hard to tell the simply unfortunate from the criminals though....So they blocked the roads and helped them get shipped to shelters. But because the refugees weren't allowed to wander the town and weren't welcomed with care packages and such,.....it must have been because of race....

But that is racist. In a town that is 40% white and 40% black.....A well to do town didn't want apparent ner-do-wells to invade their town.

Racists, every damned one of them.

Why bring this up 10 years later (and not so coincidentally, a year before an election) if not to stir the poor blacks up (again)? ?

(BTW, read the comments)

And they don't even know where/how He got his gun...



But somehow, these people have already got a plan to use this tragedy to push new gun legislation nearly instantly....One wonders if they knew it was gonna happen....

White House/Klinton make gun control push just hours after Virginia murders

DO they ahve plans waiting in a drawer just so they can "Never let a crisis go to waste"?

Realizing their mistake:

On this date, 1992. Someone at the FBI got smart enough to realize that the news had gone out and that the media and people were watching.

The rules of engagement that had been put into effect on or about 8/22 for the Snipers HRT members were changed from:

     If any adult male is observed with a weapon prior to the announcement, deadly force can and
     should be employed, if the shot can be taken without endangering any children.

     If any adult in the compound is observed with a weapon after the surrender announcement is
     made, and is not attempting to surrender, deadly force can and should be employed to neutralize
     the individual.

     If compromised by any animal, particularly the dogs, that animal should be eliminated.

Back to the "normal" rules of engagement:

     "Agents are not to use deadly force against any person except as necessary in self-defense or the
      defense of another, when they have reason to believe they or another are in danger of death or
      grievous bodily harm. Whenever feasible, verbal warning should be given before deadly force is
      applied."

that were standard ROE for all other engagements....

Funny how scrutiny changes things....innit?

Trust yer government, remember?

Was up on the hill last night

And there, in amongst the trees I have planted over the earthly remains of my pets, I was reminded of the words of Kipling.....it applies to cats too sometimes......


“The Power of the Dog”

THERE is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and women to fill our day;
And when we are certain of sorrow in store,
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and Sisters, I bid you beware      
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.

Buy a pup and your money will buy
Love unflinching that cannot lie—
Perfect passion and worship fed
By a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head.      
Nevertheless it is hardly fair
To risk your heart for a dog to tear.

When the fourteen years which Nature permits
Are closing in asthma, or tumour, or fits,
And the vet’s unspoken prescription runs      
To lethal chambers or loaded guns,
Then you will find—it’s your own affair—
But … you’ve given your heart to a dog to tear.

When the body that lived at your single will,
With its whimper of welcome, is stilled (how still!).      
When the spirit that answered your every mood
Is gone—wherever it goes—for good,
You will discover how much you care,
And will give your heart to a dog to tear.

We’ve sorrow enough in the natural way,      
When it comes to burying Christian clay.
Our loves are not given, but only lent,
At compound interest of cent per cent.
Though it is not always the case, I believe,
That the longer we’ve kept ’em, the more do we grieve:        
For, when debts are payable, right or wrong,
A short-time loan is as bad as a long—
So why in—Heaven (before we are there)
Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?



Hug your pets today....

I give no credence

To the Rumors that Lois Lerner's secret email accounts were on Hillary's illegal email server.

None at all.

Notes from Ruby Ridge:


On this day, in 1992, FBI Deputy Assistant Director Danny Coulson wrote a memo:


OPR 004477
Something to Consider
1. Charge against Weaver is Bull Shit.
2. No one saw Weaver do any shooting.
3. Vicki has no charges against her.
4. Weaver's defense. He ran down the hill to see what dog was
barking at. Some guys in camys shot his dog.
Started shooting at him. Killed his son. Harris did the
shooting [of Degan]. He [Weaver] is in pretty strong legal position."
(cite: Wikipedia.com)

But he didn't get anyone to listen to him, so the siege continued.......

So apparently, the French have no balls....

They, instead, rely on foreigners to do the dirty work of saving their asses.....

U.S. Airman Spencer Stone, National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos, their friend Anthony Sadler and Briton Chris Norman were presented with the Legion d'Honneur at the Elysee Palace in Paris.

So it took 3 Americans and one Briton to disarm the dude, while all the French fled in terror?

Seriously? 3 men, foreigners, saved the bacon of all the other passengers? I'm proud that 3 out of 4 were my countrymen, but saddened that the French apparently couldn't react enough to do it themselves....

ETA: Apparently I am wrong....at least one Frenchman took action.

Is there any way

To make the annoying and persistent pop-up for Windows 10 go away?

I'm not so sure I want to "upgrade" from Windows 7 on this machine. I tried it on a (really cheap) Windows 8 machine and found that it slowed things down drastically...not so sure I want to do that to my main machine.


1992... The beginning:

23 years ago, the incident in which many many people learned of the perfidy and callousness of the ATF, US Marshals service and the FBI (especially the Hostage Rescue Team)...and how they would lie, cheat, bribe and blackmail people to do their bidding....and lie, cheat and cover up and shift blame when they were found out.

Yep, I am talking about the Ruby Ridge incident with Randy Weaver.

This is the incident that showcased the incompetence of the US Marshals service...How they played "Operator" and bumbled in nearly every aspect of their investigation....all while costing the US Taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars BEFORE the incident at Ruby Ridge..

This is the incident where we learned about  FBI sniper Lon Horiuchi,...and his (ahem) Marksmanship....Wherein his name became an epithet after he killed Vicki Weaver under hastily modified Rules of Engagement for the HRT team....essentially an order to kill any of the Weaver party on sight.

It was this incident which highlighted the failures of management of the FBI, the ATF, the US Marshals service, and relative un-accountability of the agents employed in those agencies...and the behavior that one would expect of some men with a great deal of authority and essentially zero oversight or accountability.....and the desire to protect their fellow agents and never question their allegations....No one in any of those agencies was punished for their role in this asinine incident......one that began on lies, escalated because of a cover up and incompetence, and resulted in deaths of members of the Weaver party and a US Marshall....... FBI sniper Lon Horiuchi was protected by his agency (see manslaughter charge section) and essentially allowed to go free after committing murder.....

If you take the time to learn the facts (and the Wikipedia article has it fairly straight), you can understand why our founding fathers warned us against governments.....and why they put the First Amendment  first (so we could show, talk about, and explain what the government is doing) and gave us the Second Amendment (so we could fight back and protect the First).

It is said that this was the first of several incidents that gave rise to the "Militia" movement (and a great deal of mistrust of the government).... Perhaps it is. But had this incident not happened, the agencies involved would have had ample opportunity to find other ways to step in it not too far in the future......

Perhaps you might want to save a copy

and/or print off a copy or two..

The DIY Sten Gun. 

Mayhaps this winter I might try my hand.....

Anyone ever tried one?

But we will have a replacement for you in 1 business day!

Except sometimes, not.

1 CC machine dead in storm on Tuesday evening. Check

Called them that night. Gotta wait until the AM to order a replacement. Check.

Wed AM, order replacement. Should arrive FedEx Thursday early morning deliver. Nope.

Not in the AM, not at noon, not by three. No tracking number available either.

This is getting serious



It is bad enough when the job interferes with my drinking. (I mean, it is an issue, but it does help keep me out of trouble)...


But now, things are so chaotic and messed up that it is interfering with my SHOOTING....

Something hasta give. And soon.

I'd quit, but I own my own business, so I am kinda stuck.....

I really should go shooting when I am this fatigued.....might have to for real someday.

Not that I could shoot well....I'm so jazzed on coffee that I am about to start to hear colors.

Another icon from my youth has passed

Batgirl, has passed. 

Bummer.

I feel older .

Luckily, no one was seriously injured

So I have this backhoe....

Actually, I have a Chinese made attachment backhoe that fits on the three point hitch of my Kubota tractor....

It is a pretty good backhoe. Digs well, and has enough digging force to move the tractor even with the stabilizers down sometimes. Nice unit for small jobs.

38 HP tractor. PTO driven Hydraulic pump.

Gearbox on the hydraulic pump seizes. Hilarity ensues. Parts flying like a small detonation had happened. Chains and brackets and bolt heads and other pieces flew with abandon and gusto.

No one was hurt. Chains did break, and pieces of metal were thrown about but they hit exactly no one who was watching me dig the trench. Those guards and shields that always get in the way actually have a purpose....

But they all moved back fairly rapidly.

Now I gotta contact the company and get them to send me a replacement.

No electric install for the range in the meantime. None of the other projects that I have waiting will happen either.

ETA: Now I gotta figure out how to disconnect the damned thing from the tractor......No hydraulics is gonna make things interesting......

And to the other brother

Hey, Little Bro....Happy Birthday to YOU this time....

Yer gettin' up there too...

Why

Why isn't Hillary Clinton under arrest right now....or at least under indictment.....She wiped her server hard drive clean.
 Isn't that suppression of evidence?

Were you or I in the same position, we'd be looking out through bars.

Why isn't she?


Kinda dusty in here:

Dog gets to play in snow one last time before dying.

Lots of folks made that happen.

Story with video HERE. Mind the dust.

I know when Schmoo was coming up to her time, we did everything we could to make her happy. But nothing like this....

Damn, I miss my dog.

Whoa:

Just WTF blew up there in China?

I mean, really, that is a shitload of damage....and that is't a small explosion. The velocity must have been HUGE. Likely more than a natural gas explosion. That was some serious detonation speed. And BIG.

Pic link found at the Feral Irishman

Happy Birthday, Bro

Yer coming up on the half century mark there...

Yeah, I know it is racist and culturally insensitive.

But, really, I don't give a flying fuck.

SO Hillary is finally coughing up the email server

After how many months? Apparently they have had time to vacuum all the incriminating emails from said server.

This is a joke. Why even bother? You know, and I know, even if we can't prove it, that the delay was to giver her IT people time to clean everything that was incriminating from that server.

If I shoot someone, do I get months to buy a replacement barrel, change the firing pin and sand the bolt face so that there aren't any marks to match with the case and bullet found at the scene of the crime?

If I am in an accident, do I get time to go to a body shop and have the damaged body panels replaced and the car painted?

Seriously.

Well, now....

Izzn't this INTERESTING?
