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.

I laughed

You will too.


If you don't, then you need help.

Ain't it interesting?

When there is a winter storm in the midwest, or a storm in the south, the media can barely be bothered to cover it at all.

But when there is a winter storm in the east coast, they cover it with many people and for half the newscast?

OMFG!!! 400 thousand without power!!! Might not get it back for 12 hours!!

A foot of schnow! We can't get to the store!

Armageddon (ish)....! 

Yet, when worse conditions happen in Oklahoma, or Kansas, or Minnesota, or other parts of the Midwest, they have other things to talk about.

Odd, that. 

Almost went flying at 9

But the winds, 300ish at 10 or so all morning, then became 310/320 at 10...GUSTING 28, then gusting 32....all in the space of 15 minutes....they weren't forecast to be that bad, either. Plus the ceiling dropped to about pattern height.

Just a bit outside my level of skill at this point. So I preflighted an airplane for nothing.

The instructor and his student who arrived back at the hangar just as I was leaving (I helped 'em push the C150 back into the hangar) were a bit wild eyed (even the instructor) at their last landing. Apparently they did 3 go arounds then flew the pattern for 15 minutes or so hoping for better winds.

I think I made a good call not to fly.... the gusts continued until after noon.

(Runways are 9/27, 18/36)

Think you can take 'em away?

My UPS guy says they are delivering ammo to LOTS of houses lately. Folks that bought once a year are getting deliveries once a week now.

All that ammo isn't gonna just sit there, if and when. Bet on it. And I doubt that folks that shot 500 rds a year are suddenly shooting so much more that they need thousands of rounds.

(And it is something to think about though: Your delivery folks; FedEx, UPS and even USPS....They KNOW when they are delivering ammo. If you have good ones, like my UPS guy, he doesn't care (doesn't mean he doesn't notice though). But if they wanted to tell someone that MIGHT care.........)

I'm surprised all you Texans failed to remember:

Today was the day, 182 years ago, that the folks at the Alamo made their last stand,

Their actions gave Sam Houston's army time to prepare at San Jacinto.

I've been to the Alamo....long ago, when I was but a child. It is tiny, and crude, and yet, it gave the men a spot to rally. They may have lost their lives, but they won much more than that. I found it a solemn place, and will always remember it with reverence.

If you live in Texas, and love it, remember this day. Men gave their lives for the birthing Republic.

Had they not stood, you might be speaking Spanish and living under a different flag today. 

Rule of thumb:

I've heard this from folks who should know, as they are the ones that respond....But they have the knowledge and equipment to stay safe. They call first responding cops "Blue Canaries"....

Good Advice:

For those who may not have seen it:

'Tis folks like the one quoted here that are a great deal of the reason that we, as free citizens, NEED to be able to own firearms.

Because it is folks like this, and the politicians who listen to them and/or think like them, that we need to protect ourselves AND our Country from.

They won't enforce laws on Drugs, as she says, (and especially not on Illegal Immigration) but sure as hell, there are folks who think it is OK to turn you into a serf for the fact that you wish to be free. Who would, with the stroke of a pen, turn you into a criminal simply for exercising your Constitutional right. Who would villify you and imprison you because they blame the object, rather than the wielder....And who would ignore the failures of society and the minions servants of society  to protect itself and it's members even using existing laws. Who would remove your freedoms and the freedoms of all because some individual cannot abide by the laws the rest of us respect.

By her logic, we should remove all alcohol because some folks abuse it, remove all automobiles because some are not responsible enough to use them properly...And, especially, because we disagree with her views.

I think she would be better served in going to Australia or western Europe, where the State (composed of people like her) tells the rest of the serfs how to live. ... And the Serfs, having no other choice,, are compliant after many years of social engineering.

The New Bad Thing

First it was blacks, then it was kikes and then it was the polaks and then it was the spics and now.....

How quickly they change the object of their Ire....

I remember when the AK-47 was the terrible "Assault Rifle" thing that needed to be banned. It was the one that had the "thing that goes up" and all the bad features that defined an "Assault Weapon"(whatever that was). You could shoot tens of thousands of people with one magazine, and IIRC, it even MADE people into killers, just by holding it.

Now, it would seem, AR- series of rifles is the new "Bad " rifle, and AK is ok, at least for now. At least the press isn't focusing on it....Yet.

"All of the officers involved are still employed by the department."

SO the folks in New York get to shell out a million bucks to cover the ass of the NYPD and their officers who falsely charges a guy when THEY caused a wreck.

Odd, that. I thought the Blue Line, while thin, had SOME limits as to how far they would go to cover up misdeeds..... Yet these cops are still working, and not dismissed for cause, nor hounded out of the force by their other officers.

Remember, COPS WANT RESPECT. Yet they allow guys like these to sully the uniform they all wear, and tarnish that badge....

Make no mistake, there are a LOT of good, honest officers out there who make a difference every day in their communities.
The problem is they don't clean their house, and they suffer from failing to do so.

Turning left

Spent 1.3 hours turning left Saturday morning.

Temps in the low 50's wind 075 at 8.

10 landings.

Practiced short field landings and soft field takeoffs. Got the takeoffs down, the short field landings I will work on again real soon.

At one point there were 9 aircraft in the pattern all practicing landings. Got kinda crowded there.

Twas a good way to start the day.

Perhaps the DOJ

actually DOES, one in a while have some Justice to dispense.

Seems that they are looking at pardoning Kristian Saucier after denying him one earlier.

The Department of Justice is taking a new look at a former U.S. Navy sailor’s request for a pardon following his release from jail for taking photos of classified areas inside a nuclear submarine, his attorney said.
The letter, from the DOJ Office of the Pardon Attorney, comes less than a year after the former sailor, Kristian Saucier, received a letter rejecting his pardon request on the grounds that it did not meet several criteria, including waiting five years.

I mean, really, it isn't like he didn't do it, but at the end of the day, a candidate for the office of the President of the United States was NOT prosecuted for even more egregious mishandling of "Confidential" or higher classified material and information....primarily because she was a Democrat...

(I really think both are guilty, and both should do the punishment, but if not for one, then not for all, or vice versa). No Selective Prosecution.  

After 202 yearz

Indiana will allow package liquor sales on Sunday.

yep, since 1816, there have been restrictions on alcohol sales on Sunday.  Mostly meaning "None".

This, of course, didn't stop people drinking on Sunday, we just had to plan ahead. Some folks couldn't, and got caught out though.

At he end of the day, the Liquor Lobby won out over the Church lobby.

Although they can't sell until after noon. The church thinks it will restrict competition for their services or something...
