And now I gotta get a different Credit Card

Seems that Citibank has jumped onto the Social Justice Warrior/Virtue Signalling bandwagon. 

They are restricting some customers who sell firearms and (ghasppp!) High Capacity Magazines! (OMG!)...anyone using them as a bank can't sell firearms to anyone under 21, even where 18 is legal...and other restrictions.

Fuck em. I can use a different credit card company....and I will. I spent a bot over 10 Large via credit cards last year. Mostly via my CitiCards card. There are, however, other card companies that want my business.....and they, at least, aren't SJWing against a hobby that is near and dear to me.

They will not gain another nickle from my business. I move a not inconsiderable retirement and investment fund from JPMorganChase last year over SJWing practices, and I can choose who makes money off of my credit card purchases. I figure it'll cost Citibank about $400 in fees from my purchases alone. 

If you have a Citibank credit card, I urge you to find another card with which to make purchases. Write 'em a letter and tell ;em why you went to another card company.

Bummer, Bozo is dead

One of the actors who played Bozo the Clown is dead. 

And he's the one I watched when I was a kid.

I guess I am gettin' old.

Sad, but true.....For some folks.

A man walks into a drug store with his 8-year old son. They happen to walk by the condom display, and the boy asks, “What are these, Dad?”

To which the man matter-of-factly replies, “Those are called condoms, son. Men use them to have safe sex.”

“Oh, I see,” replied the boy pensively. “I’ve heard of that in health class at school.” He looks over the display and picks up a package of 3 and asks, “Why are there 3 in this package?”

The dad replies, “Those are for high school boys, one for Friday, one for Saturday, and one for Sunday.”

“Cool” says the boy. He notices a 6 pack and asks, “Then, who are these for?”

“Those are for college men,” the dad answers. “TWO for Friday, TWO for Saturday, and TWO for Sunday.”

“WOW!” exclaimed the boy, “Then, who uses THESE?” he asks, picking up a 12-pack.

With a sigh and a tear in his eye, the dad replied, “Those are for married men. One for January, one for February, one for March……. ”

At least they are going through the motions

Even if, in the end, they won't prosecute her...

(of course, if it were anyone else, we'd be jailed or fined or both).

ATF IS investigating Karen Mallard. 

Remember, ATF: There is no part of the law that covers "intent". She isn't Hillary Clinton. She either did it, or she didn't. And we have proof on YouTube. Do your job.

How to get your High School to pay for your college:

Go to a gun range, post about it.

Get suspended for violating the 'No Weapons' policy.

Exactly how this violates the policy of the school when the range isn't on school property and the trip was not made during school hours remains unclear.

Unless one has committed "BadThink" and the school is punishing them for it....?

I'm figuring a lawsuit is in order here...

Doesn't take much to make Leftist school administrators heads explode, does it? 

Always these weird connections:

(Unverified as f publishing, so be aware)

Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer Was on Payroll of Joe Biden, Rahm Emanuel; Previously Sued Trump & ‘The Apprentice’ Reality Show

If true, it isn't surprising.
So it could be "Fake but Accurate" news as well.

Oddly, no connection to the Clintons:

"Nuttin' to see here....Move along. "

Adrian Lamo, hacker who turned in Chelsea Manning to FBI, found dead.

Funny how these things happen, innit? Folks who let secrets out dies in strange circumstances and such.

AFAIK there was no comment from either of the Clintons.

Odd, that

Chicago's Southside Irish St Patty's Day Parade kicks off today at noon.

Which is odd, because there are very few Irish folks (or folks of Irish descent) living on the South Side anymore.

But, I guess everyone is a little bit Irish on this day.

And, strangely as well, Chicago is the Best Place to Celebrate St. Patricks Day.
You'd think it would be Boston.

Maybe it is 'cause they dye the river green?

Preezin rane & Phog.

I'm thinkin' since I have nowhere that I really need to be this mornin', I'm gonna stay home for a least until the roads aren't slick and shiny.


I think he should be in jail for his actions....

Having said that, however:
Trump Shoulda fired him a year ago, or just let him retire.

McCabe fired ONE DAY before retirement would have been possible.

One day before his pension would have been in effect?
Really, a cheap shot. Mean. Petty.

One has to wonder why Califronia is part of this nation anymore

California appoints illegal immigrant to office

So now the legislature in California thinks it is OK to put not only a non citizen into office, but a lawbreaking one as well?

Calexit can't happen soon enough for me. 

I found my way home

From there, and back!

I won't say that I was as relaxed while flying "Cross Country" as I am while driving (pretty close though), but it was a decent experience. I wasn't tense, my planning was good, (winds aloft were a bit stronger than forecast, but I adjusted my navigation there and back accordingly) and the waypoints were where I expected them to be, when they should have been.
I could have cheated and used the GPS, but I didn't.

Plus, I had no issues with the radio frequencies and had 'em dialed in before I needed 'em.

In short, my flight planning was good, and it made my flight a good one.

So different than my first cross country (with an instructor). This time it was like driving to Chicago, only with radio calls en-route.

Really, a relaxed flight.

Plus good landings all the way around.

AlGore was seen crying:

Cross country...


Pretty much gonna be time for the written soon.

If I find my way back home, that is. 

Whose fault?

I mean, I can understand the Flight Attendant needing to have the dog (and the carrier) in a place that was safe for the other occupants of the airplane.

But putting all the blame on the Flight Attendant is, in my opinion, just plain wrong.

The dog was with the owner, and the owner had a responsibility for the dogs safety.

Dog dies after being put in overhead bin for duration of flight.

If the Flight Attendant insisted, she (the owner) should have gotten off the flight. Simply refuse to put the dog there. Get off the plane and find other transportation.

What if the Attendant had insisted that her infant be placed in the overhead bin? Same-Same, as far as I am concerned.

Simply refuse to do so. Yes, it is inconvenient to take that path, but, at the end of it all, it is the pet owner who made the choice to continue the flight with the dog in the overhead. It was her responsibility to ensure the safety of the dog, and her responsibility for what happened. She failed in that responsibility. Yes, the airline shares some of that responsibility, but the owner allowed it to happen.

At some point, one has to simply say "NO".

Remember who is behind

all of these "Student walkouts"?

The ones pushing for "sensible Gun Control"?

The "grassroots" protest that is happening simultaneously all across the country exactly one month after the Parkland shooting?

Yeah, one of the principle financiers is a billionaire you never heard of....

This guy....

Hillary Clinton supporter and impeachment obsessed billionaire Tom Steyer.

Shameful, using kids to push an agenda:

Oh, wait, the Democrats have done this for years....

Pi day


Act accordingly.

Stephen Hawking

Has died.

Probably the greatest scientist of our time.
And one of the toughest people around, having accomplished so much with such an illness.

Walls work, if the entity building them want the walls to work:

Funny, and all our politicians keep telling me that a "combination of drones, passive sensors and more Border Patrol agents" will work better. But we don't have enough of those, and no funding for them either.  But somehow we still get MILLIONS of illegals across out southern border every year. 

Of course, I am a racist in that I don't want brown people to come in illegally and take the prosperity we have, and don't want the poverty that they bring from the shithole country they left.

Our border security is in the best hands....

Scary, if true

"Fix NICS" to be combined with National Carry reciprocity?

Firstly, I think National Carry Reciprocity is a shell game. They'll use it against us. I am a big believer in States Rights, and don't buy the arguments for National Reciprocity. If the people of the state of Illinois want to elect folks that pass laws to prevent me from carrying with my Indiana CCL, then that is their right.

Second, one can expect politicians of ANY stripe to use the carrot to keep your attention to hide the stick...the work hides the hook, as it were. There aren't many politicians who are true advocates for the Second Amendment, and they will do whatever they can to take your rights away....and they'll sweeten the medicine with national CCL reciprocity. "Fixing" NICS will likely cause many of your fellow citizens to get their rights removed under the color of law. Simply getting proper reporting will solve most of the issues we have seen in our recent past.

I urge you contact your senators and congressmen to have them NOT combine these two bills, and have them voted on separately. One does NOT have to follow the other, and 

Kinda like "Abbys's brain"?

Seems that when Albert Einstein died, his brain was stolen and the Doctor who did it kept it, but mailed pieces off to friends and others who wanted some.

Kinda creepy. 

I suspect he's never met a "Terrorist"

And further, he'd likely piss his pants and run, screaming like a frightened 4 year old girl, if he ever did. 

Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy (D) this week accused the National Rifle Association (NRA) of acting like a “terrorist organization.”

If he really thought we were all terrorists, I think he'd be a lot more circumspect. Some of us actually are as dangerous as he implies we are we are....

I laughed

(Link fixt)

But I am seriously gonna have to try THIS next time some chick thinks it is OK to put her spawn into my arms without asking first...

Good call:

Visa states:

 “We do not believe Visa should be in the position of setting restrictions on the sale of lawful goods and services.”

And that is how every company that wants my business should respond.

So far, unconfirmed:

And yet, all the pieces are there:

Seems that the City of Baltimore can afford to spend a Hundred Thousand Dollars (yep, $100,000.00) to send kids to a leftist protest at Washington DC regarding firearms......(Forget that the State is paying for a Leftist protest, which should be the subject of a question all on it's own)....But they apparently COULD come up with the money to bus kids to the protest, but claimed earlier this year that they couldn't pay to fix the heat in their schools. 

Odd set of priorities there, if you ask me.

How Trump should negotiate

with the midget The Dear Leader from the North part of the Koreas


Be back later. 

Waiting with bated breath:

Ok, not really.

But I am waiting to see what sort of penalty the ATF(e) brings down on this woman for illegally creating an SBR.  Having both the lower and the short barrel in your possession can be used as cause for prosecution, even if they aren't assembled....

'Cause if she gets away with it, then I might have to inadvertently make that mistake too. And keep it (both pieces) as a reminder of what not to do in the future......

She, of course, claims she knew what she was doing (demonstration of "Intent"?) and then, afterwards, took it to the police department...(Colluding with others to hide a crime?) and it has now been reported to the ATF.

If she isn't prosecuted, the I think the rest of us should be able to do the same....and since they let her get away with it, we all could too (equal before the law)....

(I need to add that I really have no need for an SBR, as I'm not a door kicker and prefer my rifle cartridges have actual, you know, velocity and such)

Lemme see if I got this straight:?

Trump wants to enforce a Non Disclosure Agreement against someone with whom he has had no contact, that does not in any way affect him, because.....Why? If he's not involved then what does it matter? And if he IS involved.....

And she wants the courts to nullify it because she wants to talk, and even though she signed it and agreed to the terms of the Non Disclosure agreement, she thinks that because public comments feel she should be able to violate it without penalties, it should be null and void?

I'm getting confused here....

Gotta love California protestors:

They were protesting Sessions visit to the state

Sign held up:

"We don't have an immigration problem, we have a capitalism problem".

Just what, exactly, do you think made the prosperity that makes immigrants, legal or not, come to this country?

Yeah, it's capitalism, and the bounty and prosperity it brings to the citizens. Pretty much, here is America, anyone who is willing to work can live better than almost anyone anywhere else in the world. Some will do better than others, but at the end of it all, you can be what most folks in the world would consider "wealthy" with a bit of hard work. Of course, being as we live in a wealthy country, we consider that "Middle Class".

Yeah, we have a Capitalism Problem.
