They oughta impeach

Each and every single judge that stayed Trump's Travel Ban. Each and every one of them. The ban was legal, Constitutional, and well within the powers of the President to enact.

The Supremes said so.

Any and all of the Judges in the Circuit courts, by their actions, have shown that they are not able to be dispassionate nor apolitical, but rather are partisan hacks. Which disqualifies them from, you know, actually adjudicating according to law.


Damn. 10 minutes

That is a LONG time to be giving CPR. I'm in decent shape and I start sweating about the 3 minute mark. Tired after 5.

I bet that last 5 must have been hell.

But he saved the dude's life.

Chicago police officer saves life of man who collapsed on basketball court.

I'm not sure I could give CPR for 10 minutes.
Could you?

If it weren't

A win for free speech

And notice that the Federal nor State Government cannot legislate tolerance.

On the one hand, I believe that a business should be allowed to discriminate/Refuse Service against anyone they choose to. Gays, blacks, whites, chinese,Muslims, Catholics  martians, single women, single men, Women with short hair, CisBiGenderQueersWhatever with(or without) purple hair, Fuzzies, dogs, unshaven men (or women), cats, sheep (especially sheep),  etc.....Camels too.

Now, if they go out of business because someone objects to that discrimination and tells everyone about it on Social Media, and people stop buying at their business or decides not to use those services....then tough shit for them.

But they get the choice to be stupid and Walk their Talk, be it religious, bigotry, stupidity,  or just plain muleishnes.

So, on the one hand, I find this Court of Appeals decision good.

On the other hand, the law has a bunch of language that essentially makes Christianity the State Religion, which I object to.

And the law allows public servants to choose to use a "Religious Objection" as a reason to not do their job....such as City and County clerks to choose to NOT issue marriage licenses. Which is wrong. If you are a Clerk, and you object to something your job requires, you can quit, but you can't just not do your job.

So this is a halfway win for freedom, but a fail for Constitutionality and for making certain Public Servants do their job...

I'd expected better from the 5th Court.....

So izzit "just a piece of paper?"

So we have, at least, a First Amendment issue, and at least a Fourth Amendment issue.


Yet, we get "Qualified Immunity" once again.

At what point are officers gonna be held personally liable for their actions? Until they are, then we will have cases like this.


I get it. A noise complaint. Then they want to use that as an excuse to search, because that is what cops do. Then they mock and verbally abuse a woman, because bullies...(Which a lot of cops are, and a lot more aren't, so don't tell me in comments how cops are pigs and all that shit, ok?) AND THE COURT SAYS IT IS WRONG BUT LETS 'EM GET AWAY WITH IT ANYWAY!
Until the courts begin punishing cops for this, our Constitution is, indeed, just a piece of paper. And our Constitutional rights are just words. And the cops oath is just so many words as well.



Good:

Businesses damaged in riots in Baltimore sue city, Ex mayor, Top Cop for damages. 
a
Bout time this started happening. Failing to protect those who are forced to pay taxes for that "Protection" should be punishable. Those officials in positions of who give the orders to "Stand Down" and to "Give them the space to destroy" should be liable for damages....Not for their failure in their attempt to protect but for choosing not to even try.

Individual cops were not given the resources nor backup to be able to prevent the looting and rioting.

Their commanders failed both them and the city. The Mayor failed everyone.  
They should be PERSONALLY liable for the damage they allowed, by their inaction, to occur.

How can I believe anything the FBI claims?

I mean, there have been some things that looked "fishy" in the past, and some stuff that was obviously just politically motivated....

But really?

The gunman who shot a top House Republican and four other people on a Virginia baseball field didn’t have any concrete plans to inflict violence on the Republicans he loathed, FBI officials said Wednesday...They said he acted alone and had no connections to terror groups. But they said they had not yet clarified who, if anyone, he planned to target, or why, beyond his animus toward President Donald Trump and the Republicans he felt were ruining the country...“At this point in the investigation, it appears more spontaneous,” Slater said.  Hodgkinson had a piece of paper with the names of six members of Congress written on it, Slater said, but the note lacked any further context and there was no evidence from his computer, phone or other belongings that indicated he planned to target those officials...He also took pictures of the baseball field where he would later fire more than 60 shots. “The FBI does not believe that these photographs represented surveillance of intended targets,” the FBI said 

I can no longer believe anything the FBI or it's agents tell me.

Move along, Nothing to see here, Citizen.

In other news:  "We have NEVER been at war with EastAsia".


ETA: (found via INSTY)  P much what I said, only written better:retty

There’s no reason to beat around the bush here: what the FBI is claiming is mind-boggling when they claim the shooter had no target in mind. Consider the number of accidents of circumstance you would have to believe were going on here to not have the shooter doing what seems obvious from every piece of evidence we have: researching and planning for an attack on Republicans of some kind, particularly looking for an opportunity when security will be low and vulnerability will be high. This was an attack, not an “anger management” problem.

Step back, though, and think on the institutional conclusions here. Considering how ludicrous the FBI’s conclusions are as it relates to an attack on the third ranking member of the House of Representatives, you might reconsider whether to trust the FBI’s conclusions in other areas, as well. And this is how our faith in institutions is degraded: steadily, gradually, with incident after incident where men in suits stand in front of microphones and make claims we know are not the whole truth.

No free speech

At least not in Europe:

German Police raid homes of 36 people:

German police have carried out a series of raids, targeting people suspected of posting hate content on social media.
and in Britain: 

I don't think I'd move there if you paid me. I often dislike some of what I read here in the US, but I will stand fast to fight for the right to say it. 
Who defines "Hate Speech"? 

I just don't get it

While I never thought that GOP Congressmen and Senators were incredibly intelligent, one would think that they can tell the difference between ObamaCare Lite and REPEAL.

I know 4 year olds that have that much cognitive ability.

So either they really like the idea of Socialized Medicine, or they are Rilly, Rilly Stupid.

And this bill really doesn't fix any of the significant failures of BarryCare.

I stand with the GOP Senators that will vote against their Party and against this legislation.

Border wall

Now with Solar Panels.

Which means he has now conflicted at least 25% of the opposition.

If he'd put windmills every 100 yards, he'd get even more support from the other side.....

Add in "Fair Trade" timbers and "Sustainable" netting and he'd have at least 5/8 of the opposition demanding the wall.....

A perfect example

Of when Trump Derangement Syndrome and "Journalism" cross paths.

A total loss of rationality. And objectivity too.

It is amazing that anyone can find someone to publish this sort of shit drivel. 

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Odd, this was OK 8 years ago.

When the Democrats were jamming ObamaCare up our ass:

Now they want a place at the table on Trump's revision of ObamaCare. One that removes some of the freebies and some of the waste.

One that (supposedly, we don't know) will make it a viable plan.

Guess they'll have to "Pass it to find out what's in it", just like 8 years ago.

(actually, I don't like it, and I want to see what is in it before the vote is taken. But innit interesting how, when their tactics are used against 'em, that the DNC types get a pissy? Sauce/Goose/Gander, and all that.

And the Democrats and the Media (but, again, I repeat myself) keep conflating "Health Care" with Health Care Insurance"....they are either stupid or deliberately lying to keep their socialist program alive.....

Yer gonna smile


Hell, yer gonna laugh.

'Tis interesting:

So some asshole white guy struck back against those acts of terrorism by muslims in the UK.

Sadly, he likely struck against the wrong folks. This is a tragedy. And bad, and wrong...And, as the authorities have stated, Terrorism.

However, one has to ask: Why was it IMMEDIATELY identified as terrorism? When a Muslim person does the attack, it takes hours or days for the "Authorities" to claim (or admit) Terrorism. This time, with what was appears to be a white man being the perpetrator, it was called Terrorism nearly immediately.

Why the rush this time?

Happy father's day

To all the Dads out there, especially mine. I was lucky, I had a good dad. Hope you did too...




For the more urban folks, if you know who yer daddy is, and if he isn't in prison, you should call him today. 

Droppin' like....

Flounder.

Steven Furst has passed.

Christ, I must be getting old. all these actors from my youth are dropping dead.

Just in time for summer:

Yeah, one wonders about the timing.....


This oughta make for a "lively" weekend

Minneapolis cop acquitted in fatal shooting of Philando Castile.

I dunno. He seemed panicky in the video, like he knew he had overreacted. And Castile never took the gun out of his pocket. He DID inform the officer, which, according to the video from the squad car, is when he got shot.

I wasn't there, and neither were you. But having said that, I don't see how, were I on that jury, could have voted for acquittal.

YMMV.


Thursday, June 15, 2017

Of course we can't.





Of course, we all knew he was either stupid, or lying.

Now there is this...and THIS

Good thing we didn't start drilling in 2012. Why, then our gas might be under a dollar.....

Why is it always the Leftists

Who are so violent? Who believe that violence is ok if the victim is someone with whom they disagree.....?

Dude was a Bernie supporter and very Anti-Republican and Anti-Trump.

Story HERE  (And since the story is from CNN you know it is true, factual, unbiased and complete)

Since there is no bleating amongst the Democrats or the media (but, again, I repeat myself) about "Assault Weapons" and such, I am assuming that it was a more or less standard hunting rifle, rather than an AR type of firearm....although I don't know for sure.




Heh:

Glowbal Warmenating Climate Changerizing study cancelled in Canadia because of 'Unprecedented Ice"

Crown Point School board backs asinine decision by School Administrator:

Well, they (finally) returned my calls.

"The Crown Point School Board fully supports the decisions made by Principal Chip Pettit in the matter regarding the graduation ceremony on June 6",

Well, at least they were clear and not wishy-washy the way so many Bureaucrats are. It does, however, show their true colors.

Article HERE in the local fishwrap.

This will be noticed by the community. Anger is high, and next election, I expect that there will be changes. Folks here don't forget.

The excuse is that he would have been given a special "cord" to denote his military service. Who among us would have recognized the significance of a colored cord?  Other local schools have allowed graduates to walk in the ceremonies with their military uniforms. They don't have to hide behind some unknown and unwritten "Policy"

Yet this ass hides behind that same  "Policy". Which shows his unsuitability for the position he holds as a school administrator. (I asked if they could show me a written policy and they could not....odd that).

Or, it could be that he is a Leftist and was making his own statement.

Make your best guess here. I know which one I think is true.

One would wonder, if a Sikh or a muslim woman in chador wanted to walk the graduation, would they have allowed them to walk without the cap?  Is there a policy for that? 

Flag day

In 1777, on this day, our Flag, the symbol of the USA, was formally adopted.

While to many, the Flag is just a piece of cloth, to me it is they symbol of what the US is, stands for, and what it can become.

Attempting to burn a Flag in my presence, or otherwise disrespecting it, is not a safe thing to do.


meme twist

I like how it has gone from reporters telling us about a "DNC claim of russian intereference" to "possible russian interference", to a solid "Russian intereference in the elections"

And yet, there has been no evidence of any at all.

Whoever is driving the media on this has done a masterful job, really. 

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

All you folks who mock TheDonald:

Remember this?

"After Obama-mocking rodeo clown, Missouri fair requires 'sensitivity training'"

Now that the shoe is on the other hand, would you like to adhere to your own rules?

I'm all for it, either way, but be consistent. If we get to mock and disrespect presidents all out of the bounds of decency, then we can have fun in 4 years....Don't whine when we bruise the ego of your candidate if he/she wins....

You really won't like how it ends....

And remember: This is what the Left considers acceptable today:


Just think if we'd done that with a Barry mask. Think of the OUTRAGE! on CNN and the rest of the MSM....(and outrage would have been the correct response....why isn't it correct here? ) Where are the Media on this??

We can only hope

Priebus has been told to either do his job or he is out.

I look forward to 4 July

Oh, hellz no

We already spend way too much on the Puerto Rican failed state.

They've bankrupted the island,....

No fucking way should we give 'em statehood.

They'll just help fuck up the USA faster.

What we oughta do is toss 'e, back. Revoke their Territorial status.

Without the US, the island would sink into complete poverty. We've spent enough money there for no gain. And they apparently can't even get their shit together with our help.

He must have missed

Shot his victim only in the hand.....with a shotshell filled with Rice Krispies...?

Failed Cereal Killer?

(sorry, I just had to....)

So when, exactly

did it become acceptable for mid 20's to 40's women to be so.....fat large?

I was on the beach today, which is unusual, I usually avoid them on the weekends...Which was when I noticed that the slimmest girl thre was what, in my day, would have been called overweight.


I mean, I understand, up to a point, but when you are in your mid 20's there is no excuse for having saddlebags like that on your hips, nor saddlebags AND a serious muffin top in your 30's. Looking like a barrel isn't acceptable, at any age.....And if you are egg shaped, then, seriously, don't you have a mirror? Or any pride, for that matter?

Guys of that age seem to find this acceptable, however, so some of the blame is on them, I suppose. They seem to be happy with extreme plump women.....

Yes, I get it, I am "Fat Shaming"...But if you are fat, then you should be ashamed.

Jesus, ladies, if you are 40+ lbs overweight at 25, what will you look like when you are 50?

And yes, the size of women has gone up over the years. (Scroll down for a chart) I checked before I wrote this. There is no longer a size six or eight, really, today....

ETA: Yes, there are some overweight men of the same age too, but overall, the percentage of fat young men hasn't changed much. The percentage of fat young women has increased. Greatly.

And yes, I know the difference between skinny, healthy, and fat.

In my backyard....

The school folks once again show their liberal bias:

Young marine banned from High School Graduation ceremony because he was wearing his marine uniform. 

I'm thinkin' Immna call the Mayor and, if I can find 'em, the members of the school board and ask why Principal Chip Pettit is still employed.

Liberals. It is disease of the mind.

Update:
The mayor's office refused to comment except that it wasn't his responsibility, but rather that of the school board.... and NO ONE at the school board was "In" today. Odd, that.

I did leave Voicemails, but really don't expect any response. Apparently there are a LOT of calls about this, according to the lady who was on the switchboard. 

So Comey's testimony

Amounted to......


Nothing. ?.?
If the Donald did anything immoral, illegal, or in any other way bad, no one can find a way to pin anything on him.

This whole debacle was a big to do about nothing, and it appears to have been designed to gin up some bad thoughts about the President among the uninformed and the DNC voters (but
I repeat myself).

I fail to see what the benefit of all of this was. Those open minded folks who look at facts will either support the President or not according to his actions. The Democrats already hated Trump so there was no gain there. The Republican voters disliked the Democratic politicians, now they dislike them even more...The TDS folks aren't rational, so they really don't matter anyway.

I fail to see the point in all this, except to give the talking head pundits something to pontificate about. The DNC folks won nothing (and now look foolish), the RNC folks gained nothing, and TheDonald came out of this stronger than before.

London terror aftermath:

12 people were arrested.

12.

Ten plus two.

How is it that the cops knew how (and who) to arrest just hours after such an attack?

How is it that they couldn't stop this, if they knew who was aiding these folks?

I mean, it isn't like they are questioning the terrorists that the police shot dead, izzit?

Where did the leads they followed up on for the arrests come from?

These boys were known to the authorities, or else they'd still be trying to identify them....and the Government folks wouldn't have been this far in any investigation. 

'Twas a great performance

Had dinner and a concert with my parents and MC in Chicago...

Beautiful afternoon for parking and walking in Wriglyville for dinner and then to the concert.

Early dinner at Mia Francesca.

Then a short walk to the theater to get in line for the concert.

Security at the entrance was a joke. But the security folks did put on a great show....Everyone got scrutinized, patted down, and purses and bags searched....It was, as I said, a great show of security.....

I DID smuggle two knives in, just to see if I could.

Not huge ones, but they could have been.

Hell, I could have carried a 1911 and at least 3 mags, the personal body search was so perfunctory....
Probably not a backpack full of nails though, they were checking backpacks and purses for bottles of alcohol (didn't want competition for the bar inside).

Event Security during the concert was vigilant, however. Gotta give props for that. I'm not sure what good unarmed security can do, but they WERE watching everyone.

The Rodrigo y Gabriela concert was a good one. Good warm up by Ryan Sheridan and a great performance by the headliners.

All in all a great evening.

I think the Splodey Jihadi types were busy elsewhere....


Sunday, June 4, 2017

Quote for the day:

" 'Tis better to run out of Tangoes than to run out of ammo"

A good thought for today's world....Especially when some of those unvetted Somali refugees recently brought here get with someone from Dearbornistan for support and radicalize some second generation muslims here in the US and start their own brand of shenanigans....

It has already happened: San Bernardino, Orlando, etc (ETA 9-11-01 how could I forget that?). The media has done all they can to discount it, along with the Feds, but you know it for what it is....

Doesn't have to be Guns or Explosives either, as we have seen in Europe. Trucks, bombs, knives. They all work. Even poison gasses or poisons in water can be used.....if you are a monster....

But here is the thing. If you cower in fear, they win. I am going to a concert tonight in Chicago. There, I have to be unarmed, as they don't have reciprocity with Indiana (or anyone, I think). I'm not going to miss my concert just because some Islamic Jihadist terrorists have been successful elsewhere.

Otherwise, they win by default. 

Gunshow report:


The day was wonderful. Arrived at 11:00 local Saturday. Sunny, Warm, Temps in the upper 70's. No line at the door.

Lots of ammo, even rimfire. Pricing was better, but not good. I expect that it will continue to decrease a bit.

Nearly anything for sale. Pistols and rifles and all, new or used. Pricing on new was better as well. Lots of AR stuff, pricing was decent if not good.

Few bargains to be found, however.

Attendance was less than expected. I know a fair percentage of the vendors at that show, and they were surprised at the poor attendance. Some folks didn't think they'd break even.

I didn't see many buyers. The weather may have affected the attendance some, but even if it were raining I doubt that the venue would have been full. he interest just doesn't seem to be there now that there is a Second-Friendly Republican in the White House.

I came home with 98.73% of the cash I took. I did order a stock for a project rifle I will be starting.

Disapproving cat....

The vet was going to come out at noon. Bob chose his own way out and passed the Bridge at 4 AM instead.

My friend Bob is in pain no more.

Rescued 7 years ago when some asshole abandoned him. He was starving when I found him. Hard to catch fieldmice when it is -15 F. Damned near frozen to death too....All he wanted was food, shelter, and love. I gave that. He gave back in spades.

He was FIV positive. Which is what killed him, ultimately.

'Twas a good 7 years. I think they were good for him as well. He seemed happy and content until Tuesday. The decline was swift.

I shall miss him. If  y'all could say a word to whomever you pray to for him, that'd be much appreciated.

RightThink

Or is it GoodThink?

I can't seem to be able to tell the difference anymore.

Now they are going after Texas Revolution heroes.

Because slave. Or something

They are, apparently, no longer on the "Approved" list to be held in high esteem in history.

So they are trying to erase them too.

I figured it would morph to something else once they had the whole Confederate Heroes thing well under way.

Once you start burning books and rewriting history, who knows where it will stop. 

Road Trip....

Pulling the new (for my brother, anyway) tractor on a trailer for 325 miles. Call it 8500 lbs.

20 MPH headwind the whole way back.

The tractor has a cab, which made us about 10 foot tall. Wind drag was enormous .

Especially at about 78 MPH. Which was pretty much what we cruised at.

The new truck pulled it like a champ. Thirsty though.  . Average out unloaded was 18, average back was.....9.7.  Hard to dislike a diesel with an engine brake. Pulled it like it wasn't even there. Stopped it too....

No incidents except losing the carcass of a tire on the trailer. Which my brother (who was driving) caught early enough that it was no big deal. Pull over at the next exit, pull the jack and spare and change. No blowout.

Makin' miles.

It was a good trip. My Dad and my Brother and I don't get together for shit like that enough anymore.  

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

Road trip!

Gotta pick up some equipment with my brother and father.

Gonna break in the new  truck right. Hauling circa 10K for a couple hundred miles.

I don't drink beer much

(or anything at all, mostly) 'cause I like to stay outa jail, and alcohol generally leads there...


But this sort of thing makes my want to buy a case or a 12 pack just to support a company that has the balls to support our veterans.

Memorial Day isn't about our veterans, but it IS about those they lost. The ones that didn't come home, the comrades they lost.



Remember, during your hotdogs, burgers, friends or family, the extra day off.

You got it because they gave.

Your freedom is due to their sacrifice.

So raise a glass, take a minute ,think of them. Say "Thank You". Trust me, they'll hear it.

Now go enjoy your Memorial Day Holiday.

Hacking the election of 2016:

"Cultural appropriation" war

Will they go after the coffehouses too? Oddly, I don't see any coffeehouses on the list.....

I mean....Coffee isn't a white person's thing, IIRC, will they close down all of the coffehouses not owned by Africans or South Americans? Anyone not Columbian?
I doubt it, as then then they'd lose their social centers......Of course, that'd make 'em hypocrites.

But they hate "Cultural Appropriation".....

SJW's make list of  white owned "appropriative restaurants" ...Will they put them out of business like they did Kooks Burrios?

I'd use a list like this to choose where I was gonna eat when I went out.....

There oughta be a law allowing people to smack SJW's.....Like "Punch a Hippy" day once was.....

(ETA: THE ABOVE LINE IS SATIRE....some folks apparently don't have the intelligence to understand nor comprehend that.....)

So while you enjoy

Your three day weekend.....our burgers, and hotdogs and Mom's Potato salad, and the desserts and camaraderie of your friends or family...

The races, the Parades, the days off work...

Please, take a moment.

Remember what, and who, this holiday is for.

Just a moment.

California farmers

Can't get enough cheap labor now that there aren't enough illegal Mexicans to exploit.

Bummer.

I can't find it in my heart to feel anything for them. 

Lone wolf, huh?

If I can count correctly, this makes SEVEN (now 8) arrests in the muslim led attack on children in Manchester.

7  8 people.

Some Lone Wolf, huh?

Woman arrested in Manchester attack investigation.

But Trump can't block unvetted travelers from these countries where these attackers come from, because fairness or something.

When did the folks in the rest of the world get the same rights our citizens get here in this country?

Yeah, that's a black eye...

So in Indianapolis (Speedway) Indiana, Hours after qualifying at the track for the Indianapolis 500, Dario Franchitti and Scott Dixon, hungry late at night after a long day and an even longer evening of press conferences and such go to a Taco Bell (apparently the only place close by that was open) for some late night munchies for themselves and their crews.

Got robbed in the drive through. It was once a decent part of town, but hasn't been for many years. While no one was injured, they were robbed by two "Yoots" with a pistol while waiting in the drive through.

The police arrested two juveniles a few tens of minutes later. I'd bet that there were no other calls answered until arrests were made in this case.....

Those darned Amish kids......

Mr. Bond has passed

Or, at least one of them, anyway....

Roger Moore has passed away.


Socialists:

Had an interesting conversation Monday at the range....

[I was sighting in and function testing a new Henry Survival Rifle for the new truck (space in the truck just isn't there for the folding stock AK I had in the old truck). The rifle shot well, 2 of the three magazines worked, one will be replaced....not a fan of the peep sight, but it is very functional and works for what it is supposed to do. 100 rounds, zero ammo related issues. In fact, the ONLY issue was the one magazine, which won't lock into the receiver properly and falls out after one shot. Watch this space, later, there might be a range report if I don't get too lazy...]

Was packing up when a member I recognize but do not know arrived. He was on his phone pontificating to someone that "Healthcare is a Constitutional right".

Couldn't resist....

I waited until he got off the phone and asked him if he had ever, you know, READ the Constitution.

Turns out he hadn't....At least he admitted that.

I asked him how he could claim that Health Care was a right enumerated in the Constitution if he, himself, had no real knowledge of the aforementioned Constitution.

He mumbled.....Ended up saying he had misspoke, and what he meant was it was a "Human Right" and that we should all pay to help others who were less fortunate than we.

I asked him how many he was helping?

He wanted to know what I meant?

"I mean, bro, you are driving a BMW...that is what, a $80,000 car? How much "Basic Health Care" would that buy?" ...."And that nice (and it WAS nice) Python there? How much would that buy?" (it was mint, and nice. Likely a full Colt Custom item. Perfect Colt Blue...).

"Why don't you start, before you want everyone else to pay for your little Socialist experiment.....?"

He asked what I meant.


"Why don't you live in a very small home, sell your big one. Why don't you drive a small car, maybe a Corolla rather than that big honkin' Beemer. Live at or close to the Poverty line.....Take that money, along with what you get when you sell your firearms, your house, and your cars, and use THAT cash to show the rest of us the way it oughta be before you start saying that Health Care is a right to be paid for by others? .....Show Me The Way...?  Or is it that you are just a Socialist with Other People's Money?  How many people's healthcare insurance have YOU paid for this year? "

He packed up and left.

I didn't feel sorry. 

Terror, again, in England.

Yeah, another terror attack in England.

I'll bet it was those Lutheran immigrants from Scandinavia. Probably second generation ones helped by recent ones from Latvia. Seems to be  pattern.

And our Government wants to bring lots and lots of that group over here. Will we have the same problems in 5 or 10 or 20 years?

Police say they know the identity of the suicide bomber, but they aren't telling anyone. And knowing the name after the fact doesn't help those who were killed or injured by those flying nails and ball bearings, does it? Will any of those folks ever be the same? Will they ever have no fear in a public place?

Those damned Lutherans.

Thank PETA

Remember going to the circus as a child?

The bright lights, graceful performers in elegant costumes, the clowns and the animals?

Those high flying acts, the jugglers and the booming voice of the ringmaster telling you about the acts?

The tigers and lions, and bears? The elephants?

Yeah, that is gonna be gone. No more. No more wide eyed youngsters watching in rapt fascination, mouths agape at the spectacle.

Since PETA chased the big animals out of the circus, fewer people go. add in the other regulations, and the loss in attendance without the animal shows, and you have the end of the circus.

Ringling Bothers and Barnum and Bailey circus shall be no more as of 7 PM tonight. 

You can watch the live stream of the last show HERE.

Thus ends the Greatest Show on Earth, destroyed by tiny, small, weasely people. 

Saturday, May 20, 2017

Yep

THis is so true.

I'd post more, but will be busy fundraising for  the NRA classes at my range.

Maybe more later.

Indeed

Read. 

Like Mandarins...

Can't see anyone sayin' it better. 

One thing I've noticed:

I don't know if Comey really has a memo telling us what he thought he heard or not.

If he does, I don't know what it really says, as opposed to what the Press tells us it says.

But the one thing that I haven't seen nor heard is Ex FBI Director COMEY telling me or anyone else that the President asked him to break the law.

Not a peep.

Why is he silent? 

Thursday, May 18, 2017

Question:

If Comey was asked to stop an investigation, effectively to Obstruct Justice.....Wasn't he required to report this?

I mean, he was asked to break the law, according to reports. By the President. Which, according the the DNC  MSM was illegal enough to get Trump impeached.

But Comey chose not to report it. Which would them seem to me that he either didn't think it was important enough to do anything about, or he was willing to conceal the fact that the President had effectively asked him to conspire to break the law.....Obstructing justice by failing to report the illegal actions he now claims happened.

Isn't an officer of the law (and this includes FBI agents) required to report any such actions? Isn't failure to report such actions a violation of their oath and in fact, illegal? I am told this is true by folks who work for the FBI.


Socialism is good for the figure:

The average Venezuelan citizen lost 19 pounds last year.
Lack of food will do that to ya....

Socialism has destroyed a once vibrant, wealthy country.

But Socialsim seems to turn everything it touches to shit.

I'm glad they appointed

a Special Prosecutor regarding the "Russians" and the supposed interference with the elections last November.

I would like to see a demand for a report in not more than 90 days....60 would be better, really.  If they can't find any evidence by then, it isn't there.

Really, what with all the shit that has been bandied about, there should be proof by now.

But let's put an end to this. either prosecute someone or let it go.

Enough of this.

So why do we have Primary elections then?

(not that I think that we SHOULD have primary elections....at least not primary party elections officiated over and paid for by taxpayers...The General election, yes, but the primaries are the responsibility of the Parties)

 " lawyers for the Democratic Party tell Judge Zloch the lawsuit should be thrown out because the Party has the freedom to determine its nominees by “internal rule”, not voter interests,..."


You really should read the whole thing.

"Pot, meet kettle"




"Remove the mote from thine own eye, firstly"

The New Republic is claiming that "The Russians" are sowing thousands of "Fake News" stories to the American Public. (and perhaps they are).

But if they are gonna complain about it, shouldn't the Liberals (and especially the DNC Cheerleaders MSM clean up their own act first? 

So because they don't like how he said it......

Anyone else's travel ban....say, Barry Obama Soetoro Obama, would be OK, because of his thoughts on Islam. (And because they wanted to hobble The Donald....)

"Context matters".

No, it doesn't. Either something is legal, or it isn't. The "Context" or the reason matters not a whit.

Watch the VIDEO for more.....

The judges who issued the stays on Trump's travel ban should be impeached. Disbarred, in fact. Never allowed to judge nor practice law again in their lifetime. 

BLEG:

SO I need to stock the new truck, I got nearly everything I need, but I DO need to find a decent, compact REAL First Aid kit. Something that I can use to treat major stuff, not Band-Aids, and asprins.  I'm talking first aid at an accident or the like....

If I could find one, I'd get something like the kit I got when I took AD's Gunshot Wound class.

Anyone got any suggestions? I can indeed make my own, but it'll be expensive and I would have to buy a lot of stuff that I then would never use (can't buy chest seals by the "each", ferinstance).....Plus there is the hassle of finding a decent small pack to put it all in.


So does anyone have any suggestions for an already put together kit?

And this is what happens

When you have too many of any one cultural group of immigrants on one place.....especially Muslims, but, really, of any group. When the percentage of any one immigrant group becomes too high, you end up with things that go against the "American" way. Which isn't always bad, but undermines the culture and authority of the country.

"Congress shall make no law"

This is, (if you'll pardon the expression) a sticky one.....

What defines a "church"?

Be specific. On the one hand, "Freedom of Religion". Who are you to tell me how and who with I can worship....or when?

On the other hand, "Zoning".....and the outrage of a few citizens.......Who happen to live near the office park where this "Church" conducts it's "services". Who are they to say where such services can be held? These "church services" are behind closed doors, not in public.

I dunno. I doubt that the folks in the neighborhood will win this one.

It is "Slippery Slope".....if you can decide that a community can define how or what a "church" is or how they "worship" then you have a mandated religion. If this were a Mosque of a Synagogue being opposed, the City would lose immediately. But instead, a bunch of bible thumping churchgoers believe they have the right to define other peoples behavior when it has no impact on their own lives......and that they can define what a "Church" and "worship" is.

I foresee this getting ugly. And I see a potential Supreme Court case here. Not my thing, but I really don't want the State to get to decide how anyone's church must conduct itself....

Of course, you can always call the BATF for a ruling....


Innit amazing?

What CAN happen when the city and State are motivated to make something happen rather than impede it?  When they help rather than impede? When inspectors show up on time and plans are approved in a timely fashion rather than languish on some bureaucrat's desk for days or weeks....(and yes there were financial incentives to the construction company too). When there isn't a call for a study for an endangered species or a survey required for drainage or for greenspace impacts or displacing homeless or any of the other bullshit that normally happens....

I-85 bridge reopens 42 days after fire destroys span. 

Here is how it happened:




And someone ate a bat again

Thus, Ebola season starts. 

Luckily, the Feds aren't bringing in folk from the Congo in job lots like they are Syrians, or it would be here. 

Friday, May 12, 2017

Y'know....

The Media is getting irksome.

I tune in for news, not propaganda.

'Tis interesting that every Democrat wanted Comey fired....until he got fired. I sincerely doubt Comey is the lead investigator in the investigation into the "Russians", so how is this a big deal? It's not like he was gonna excuse any behavior like he did Hillary's "mishandling" of Top Secret memos.

Then it must be a coverup. Odd how the media conveniently forgets that, innit?

And no one said anything when Billy Clinton fired Willie Sessions the day before he had Vince Foster killed Vince foster committed "Suicide"...

Because "Democrat", so "ignore improprieties".

Comey should have been fired Day One. If Comey had had any honor, he would have resigned.

And it isn't like there aren't several other investigations concurrent with the FBI investigation.

Why do I have to hear a made up scandal biased story to the exclusion of Real news?


ETA: And now they can't seem to stop using "Watergate" in the same sentence, as if to link the Break-In and subsequent debacle to Trump.

"Rules for Radicals" seems to be the rule of the Media today.

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Enough, already!

Scott Pelley just can't stop using the word "Russian" every time he refers to Trump.

At this point, his credibility is beyond repair.

He has noting to point at to LINK Trump to anything Russian, But he can't (or won't) stop using "Russian" in the same sentence. Perhaps this is an attempt to link Trump and "Russians"  in his viewers minds?

Look: I am all for finding out if, as is implied, Trump was under the pay of, or was somehow aided by, the "Russians". Perhaps he really is Putin's lapdog. But this continued innuendo, without accusation and without proof is becoming pedantic, and frankly, irritating....and childish.

For many years the MSM has had little credibility with me,  But they don't have to renew my reasons for doubt daily.... I get the fact that they HATE Trump and they will do anything to delegitimize him as President. But at some point, they have to just stop.

The Left is going NUTS about this alleged Russian thing. The Left (and the Hillary campaign) made it up and the Loretta Lynch's "Justice" department believed them and then the Press ran with it....

Can't say I am sorry to see him go

He was, at the first a political animal.

Then an administrator (and not that good of one, apparently).

Then a leader of FBI agents.

Comey Fired

What with his mealy mouthed dealing with the Hillary Server and all, and then his half assed try to assuage his conscience just before the election, he isn't suited to be the leader of an organization like the FBI. 

"What do you mean, you sold it???"

So I recently took delivery of the Dodge Ram 2500 that I had ordered.

Now, having a new truck, I had no need of my old truck, a 14 year old Dodge diesel 2500.

As the old truck had a bit of rust over the rear wheel wells, the dealer really wasn't interested in it, and, rather than make a crap offer, suggested that I sell it myself. They even did a valuation on it to give me an idea of a fair selling price.

So, I put a sign on the truck and placed it at the end of the driveway. Had several folks stop and look at it in the first week, but no one came ad threw cash at me, so I put it on craigslist on Friday afternoon.

Now, Thursday, a guy had stopped by with his wife (who disapproved) and looked at it, had taken it for a drive, and had even talked a bit about price. Said he'd call me in the morning. Except that I never heard from him, which was why I placed the truck on Craiglist.

I got the usual lowball offers via email, at least 2 scammers, and one guy came and looked at it...all before noon. This guy appeared serious, looked closely at the truck, drove it, crawled underneath it, etc. Asked all the right questions. Told me he'd call me Sunday. Which he did. He then told me he'd take it, and we arranged a time for him to come and pick it up, which happened on Sunday afternoon. Cash on the barrelhead....

Monday, the guy who looked at it THURSDAY BEFORE called and said he had decided to buy my truck.

"Sorry, dude, I sold it on Sunday"

"What?"

"Sold it on Sunday. Guy from Craigslist looked at it and bought it".

"But I went to the Bank and got money and all".

"You never called me".

"I meant to, but I got busy"

"You never told me you wanted it....You were supposed to call on Friday morning. I told you I was gonna put it on Craigslist on Friday....Today is Monday. I sold it Sunday."

"Yeah, but I got busy"...."and I had to go out of town on Saturday".

"Dude, the Truck. Is. Sold."

"But...."

"You. Never .Called......I. Sold. The. Truck......If you wanted it, you should have called and made an arrangement.... not waited 4 days.

"But....I wanted it!"

"Sorry bro, you snooze, you lose. If you wanted it, you should have made it plain. Put down a deposit....."

"But....."

"Gotta go, bro, good luck next time".

And I hung up, shaking my head.

Just FYI:

If you have a Gander Mountain Gift Card or a Credit Card with points....

Us 'em by 5/18/17. They are Going Out of Bisness. Or not?. But until they decide, I'd use up my Gift Cards....

Thassom Nice Shootin' there,

Yeah! The range is back to 100%

And everything works, even the target turners.

See, the guy (or guys) that built it in 1980 or so ran the signal cable(s) for the control for the (homebuilt!) target turners and timers in the same conduit as the power, clean into the breaker box, then out again through a hole drilled in the side of the breaker box (not to code).

Replacement of the (now doubled breakers) box of even older vintage necessitated cutting this wire in order to remove the breaker box.......With zero slack in the control cables.

Which led to a lot of work. Splicing and more splicing. With wires that don't match to colors because I have NO idea where they got the unmarked multiconductor cable with the weird colors. (Pastels? Really?) Blue with gray tracer and brown with red and yellow with white and all sorts of other interesting combinations.

Then, a bad splice led to lots of fun, as there is absolutely ZERO documentation on this thing. And I haven't done relay logic (and an odd mix of 1980's TTL) in like 30 years, since my first job outa tech school. Which made troubleshooting interesting and fun. Especially since the logic appears to be in several widely dispersed relay enclosures.....

It would have been nice to have a diagram, even a wiring diagram, much less a layout of the relays.

But it works, and I have made notes that should have been made 37 years or so ago (and maybe they were, but some dickhead tossed em?) and have placed the documentation inside the control box for the next poor soul who has to work on this.

If you do stuff like that, PLEASE remember the guy in the future who has to work on your stuff. Document.....Place documentation in the main control panel or nearby. Maybe notes as to where everything is?

But hey, it gave my brain a real workout, and the range is up and working the way it was when I started.

So France decided to put their neck in the noose.

They elected Macron.

I said that the US had taken a LARGE step towards the Abyss when we elected Barry the O the first time, and I can say that the French have taken an even greater step towards Oblivion in their choice of leader.

Thing is, this infection will spread, the Rot will get to other countries. Germany is already circling the rim, and now the rest of Europe will follow (with the POSSIBLE exception of the UK).

Bet on it. 5 years or so from now, France as you know it will no longer exist.

TrumpCare vs ObamaCare

Here, from the BBC, is a comparison.

It is still Subsidized, it is still Socialized Medicine.

AND IT ISN'T REPEAL.

Thing is, now Trump owns it.  So when it craters in 3 years or so (and it will, the fail has already begun), it isn't BarryCare anymore, it is DonnieCare......

And this is the end of the chance the GOP had to actually, you know, succeed in regaining its power. (Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.....)

Delta apologizes

Which is good......They paid the dude's costs and offered some compensation.

The question I have, however, is did they fire the flight attendant in the video? You know, the one that lied about "federal law" and "federal regulations" regarding seating of children and/or "Federal Law" when it came to "following orders of a flight crew" (which is only applicable IN Flight (defined as terminal to terminal, and since the plane hadn't left the terminal....))...Did they fire her? If not, then they approve of her antics, and are only apologizing to the passenger and covering his costs and such because there is video evidence.

Unless they have fired her, then I gotta believe that Delta thinks this is good behavior for flight attendants.

Until folks start getting fired for this shit, it won't stop.



I'd not have been as calm and cool and collected. 

Oh, and don't forget:

Today is the Holiday for Mexicans in the US, but nowhere else in the world, not even Mexico, except for the State of Puebla...where it is a tepid holiday, at best...maybe some parades and such.

For the rest of Mexico, it is nothing special. In the US, it  is, somehow, a special day for Mexican Americans and their illegal friends. And an excuse to drink for the rest of us because cheap Mexican beer and tequila is on sale and there are drink specials at bars and such.


But mostly it is an American Mexican holiday, not a Mexican holiday. Sorta like St. Patrick's day only with darker skin and black hair.


Now that'll fix what ails ya.

154 proof Gin. 

Not for the timid. A bit harsh on yer innards....But I bet that it will make great Rheumatism medicine and such.

They want folks to return those bottles, but I bet that none are returned. 

You mis-understand:

This bill wasn't a "Repeal and Replace".

It was a "replace ObamaCare with a "less bad" version of ObamaCare".

Those 20 Representatives who voted against this abomination of a bill are the only ones who stood true to the GOP promise to REPEAL.

All of you who use the words Repeal and Replace are liars. There is no Repeal. There is still Socialized Medicine. There is still the concept that the State owes some people health care insurance based solely on their "reported" income. That the rest of the people should pay their own way. That failing to participate in the shared risk pool can be rewarded when people discover that they need someone to pay for their medical expenses (preexisting conditions) on the backs of the rest of us.

The whole concept of Socialized medicine still exists in this plan. What it has done is to more firmly cement the concept that Health Care insurance is a right as a citizen of the US.

The GOP has greatly failed to meet even my very low opinion and expectations of them.



Influencing presidential elections

Proving once again that Leftists stick together. Liberals. What can you say?

(and, of course, showing the double standards when it comes to influencing elections)

Thursday, May 4, 2017

Yep

This.

Exactly this.

I want my campaign promises kept.

TheDonald should fire his advisors. Especially Reince Preibus, Since he took him on, Trump's message and strength had gone downhill. Seems his ability to get things done has waned.

Trump is acting like the GOP that we elected him to lead to victories, not to fail and knuckle under.

100 days, and where is the Repeal? Where is the wall (yeah, the GOP negotiated both away) where is anything in the first 100 days?

He shoulda stood firm and let the Dems cause a shutdown.




Wednesday, May 3, 2017

At some point

In the replacement of the 40 year old breaker box, one must just say "FuckIt" and just get the power back on.

This is doubly true when the person who installed the original box had no idea what he was doing in the first place. (and he has passed, so I can't kick him in the ass)

It is now safe (I am amazed that thing didn't burn the whole range down) if not to Code.

It will be to code in a day or two. And the power is back on in almost every place in the range. 

If you like science fiction....

Then you should read J Curtis's recent effort.

Rimworld...Into the Green

I was one of his Beta readers. It is a good epic.

Worth buying for your reading pleasure.


Tuesday, May 2, 2017

Yo, Donnie:

Where is my cuts in government spending? You know, the ones you promised?

Yes, the Democrats have threatened to hold fast and shut down the Government.....How is this a bad thing? Let 'em stall and put the Federal Government into stasis for a while. I DON'T CARE. Blame them. Be loud about it. don't let them set the agenda and the Budget.

I want my "Less Government" I want my spending cuts. I want my Border Wall and my Repeal of ObamaCare.

If Reince Preibus is telling you that you should fold, remember, he was once the opposition, and he was the one pushing Jeb Bush. He was the one that let the Democrats walk all over the Republicans for the 8 years of Obama's reign.

You really need to stand fast here. Say "NO!" and demand the cuts. Demand the start of the border wall. Defund Planned Parenthood and the NEA and all those other useless agencies. Insist on a 20% cut in every 3 letter agency (and 25% in all the rest).

Stand fast. We supported you in the election and we will support you now.

GIVE US WHAT YOU PROMISED.

Yes, I know it is hard. Yes, people will say Bad Things about you. (Hint: They already are saying Bad Things about you) . Let the DNC choose to shut the government down. But stand firm.

We elected you because you weren't More of the Same. You weren't the DNC Light GOP that we had as other choices. Don't prove us wrong here. You have a majority in the House, and in the Senate. Use that Majority. Make the RNC types stand for what they claim they stand for. Kick some butt if you have to.

Stand up, be strong, stand firm, and fight for what we want....for what you promised......Fire Reince Preibus and anyone else who says you need to be conciliatory. Fight for what you promised those of us who got you where you are.

'Cause if you keep folding your cards when the Democrats push back,  then there is gonna be a Democrat majority government running this country 4 years from now, and that ain't gonna be good for any of us or the country.

Get busy and LEAD the milquetoast Republicans away from the idea that they must fold every time when the DNC folks start playing Full Contact. Kick some ass yourself and get them in line and LEAD. It is why we elected you.

ETA: Puerto Rico? Let the island sink....or, let 'em have to sell the island to pay their debts. They aren't even a state, why should we bail them out after all those years of mismanaged finances?
Fuck 'em.

ETA: I aint the onliest one that feels this way.

Well, the good news

Is that the scniffles (Of epic proportion) have ceased, for the most part.

Sadly, it is now in my lungs. I can't walk up a flight of stairs without having to stop.

In fact, the effort put into writing this post my be a bit too much.

More later as I feel less ill.

Read the folks on the left side. They are smarter and more erudite anyway....

This judge

should be impeached.

and barred from legal work for life.

He isn't impartial.

He's a DNC tool.


Anyone notice?

I'm not wantin' to start suggesting that a few (unwilling) people died for a cause or anything....


And yet, one must break a few eggs to make an omelette and all that.....

But have you noticed that ever since the push for Gun Control failed a few years back, there hasn't been any atrocities committed on the National Media by white guys with firearms?

No schools shot up with those terrible mind infecting Black Rifles, nor high capacity magazine "things that go up", nor 30 round pistol "clips" in those terrible GLOCKSs or anything?

Maybe it has been happening, and we just haven't been informed by the media?

Or did all those kids in Connecticut and all those folks in the movie theater in Colorado die and get shot and permanently injured by those whacked out kids on psychotropic drugs for no real good reason. Does Gabby Gifford have a permanent brain injury for nothing....?

Were all those folks just (wasted) sacrifices?

'Cause in case you haven't noticed, there haven't been any big splashy ones since the Left gave up trying to take yer guns away.

(But I bet had Hillary been elected there would have been at least two incidents by now....Just to set the stage ....)

Flip Flip Flip

And Trump Caves Again.

So those ObamaCare subsidies?

The ones that Trump was gonna rescind?

That campaign promise?

Yeah, so much Hot Air.

First the Wall.....

Now this:

Trump Caves On Obamacare Subsidies To Avoid Government Shutdown.

I'm growing ever more unhappy with Trump. He SHOULD go to a Shutdown if that is what it takes to get his budget.....Wall, and Obamacare and all the other promises he made.


We elected him on those promises, after all. He doesn't appear to have the spine to even really try.

Apparently he's gonna approve a bailout of Puerto Rico as well, in order to prevent a standoff with Democrats and a budget shutdown.  I'd like to see that standoff...there is a point wherin one has to take a stand...

He is, I think, getting bad advice from Reince Priebus.....The leader of the previous GOP, who couldn't stop anything the Light Bringer did...that party of accommodation.

And it is showing in Trumps lack of victories.

Stand up and fight, Mr. Trump! 

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

Fuk the UN

They claim that repealing ObamaCare is against "International Law"?

Why don't they take some of their bloated salaries and the profits they make off of the decisions they do at the UN and subsidize those folks they want to protect?

(Of course, they could do a lot with that money in other parts of the world also....)

And we need to make one thing clear to the UN.

They don't get a say in the laws or operation of the Government of the US. .

If they don't like that, and cannot understand that, and can't keep their fingers off of our pie, they are welcome to take their headquarters somewhere else and they can do without our contributions to the UN. (They'd lose better than 20% of their income).

Were I Trump, I'd tell em to take a flying fuck at a rolling donut.

I have found that those surplus blue helmets can be penetrated by a .308 NATO round at a bit over 450 yards. (YMMV).
Just sayin'.




HaHaHa


Self justified derangement

See, it isn't the fact that so many have Trump Derangement Syndrome, it is the fact that Trump is just so terrible..

Or something.

It isn't the fact that so many can't be objective in their assessment of Trump's actions (Nor could they be objective in their assessment of the actions of The Light Bringer Barry Soetoro (See also, a Nobel Prize for....doing nothing)....It is on fact the terrible things Trump might someday do when he gets a chance.....

Or something like that.

It isn't the fact that, while conservatives feared Barry Soetoro's wish to "Fundamentally Change America", we all sat there and waited for him to make the attempt and then fought him every step of the way, rather than gnashing our teeth and crying and having to take our anxiety meds and have Drum Circles and Two Minute Hates Support Groups and such.....We dealt with things as they came, in a logical and realistic manner rather than stress out over our imagined fears that we projected onto a powerful leader not of our philosophy.

It's not because their revered Obama didn't have gaffes and miscues and mistakes in his first few months in office (and later).....

No, it is, in this article, just because Trump is who he is. 
And that, my friends, is all the justification that these folks need to have Trump Derangement Syndrome.....in spades
Well,  my new truck FINALLY got to the Dealership.

And it be nice.

Leather, diesel, RamBox, lots and lots of stuff to be happy about.

Last one lived with me for 14 years....and it still has got a few years of life left.

So what's afoot?

Seems the entire Senate is to be briefed about something to do with North Korea.

How is yer prep status?

Just sayin'. 

Well, fuck

Trump caved on the wall.

Now we are told "Maybe Next Year".  Trump "Takes the Wall off the table in Budget negotiations".

I think he ought to sell sponsorships in one foot sections to citizens for $100 each. I bet he could pay for the wall that way.


So now we can add the Wall to the failures and broken promises, along with Repeal. 2 big promises that got him elected are being tossed by the wayside.

Bad boyz, Bad boyz...

Whatcha gonna do whatcha gonna do when we come for MLK?


So they are taking down another set of Confederate memorials today....

Because when we decide MLK was not who you feel he was, when we decide he becomes irrelevant, when we choose to claim he was racist, or this deeds were hate speech, as this originated at...because some asshole wearing a Black Power patch on his jacket kills a white man, or wearing a Malcom X "X" shoots and kills a bunch of white folks...

You gonna dare to stop us from removing a statue or a bust of MLK?

'Cause so far, people have been decent and let you get away with trashing their memorials to their heritage. You claim "racist" but those folks were all a hundred or more years ago.

What you mean is that you want to show how much power you have, as black people.

Symbols mean things to people. Just as you claim that that civil war memorial is "racist" and you revere the Statue of Martin Luther King......so does that "Confederate" statue stand for the heritage of the families that built the south.

No, it wasn't on the backs of the blacks despite what your current version of history might represent....

Learn the truth, deal with the fact that those memorials are there and shut up and find a black person who will do something important enough to be memorialized and then pay for a statue or memorial for that person.....

'Cause otherwise, someone is gonna start finding ways to denigrate MLK and we will begin finding excuse (like every black on white crime) to rename his streets and parks and then eventually pull down his statues (most of which were paid for by whites as taxpayers).

If y'all keep this up, yo won't like how it ends, 

It would seem

That if it weren't for fake hate crimes, there would be none at all:

A Muslim professor at Indiana State University lied about receiving threatening emails and being attacked on campus, police say.

It is odd that seemingly none of the hate crimes that are reported are real, isn't it? I cannot find a single "Hate Crime" that was actually, you know, legitimate.

Odd, that. 

Question for liberals:

And democrats.....(but I repeat myself)




Build that wall!!!

Where are they now?

These are quotes from 1970 Earth Day "scientists".

Where are they now? What have they got to say for themselves? I've lived here on this Earth the entire time...since before there was an Earth Day. I haven't seen these terrible results happen.....

"The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age." — Kenneth Watt

"Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years." — Stanford University biologist Paul Ehrlich

"By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate… that there won't be any more crude oil. You'll drive up to the pump and say, ‘Fill 'er up, buddy,' and he'll say, ‘I am very sorry, there isn't any.'" — Ecologist Kenneth Watt

"It is already too late to avoid mass starvation," — Denis Hayes, Chief organizer for Earth Day

"In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution… by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half." — Life magazine

These folks made a fair amount of money during their career.... Is anyone asking for a refund?

I'd love to see Scientific American, or Nature, or National Geographic interview these folks if they are still alive....see what they have to say about their dire predictions.

'Cause we have more oil, less pollution, no "Glowbal Cooling" (Now we have passed to "Glowbal Warmering", and since that didn't pan out either, it is now "Climate Change")... More food (where the governments haven't failed their citizens and caused shortages) and better overall living conditions for nearly everyone in the world since 1970.


If you live in Providence

Or if you know anyone who does live there

Or you own property in Providence.......(Rhode Island, that is)....

Then I'd advise you to sell, or tell your friends and/or family to sell their property as soon as possible.

Providence has chosen to become a lawless city.

Look at what happened to crime in Chicago when Mayor Rahm and the feds got through hobbling the police force.

The place will be a shithole in less than 2 years. Maybe less than a year...Bet on it.

Yes, it was heading that way already, but when one is in a car heading for a cliff, it is best to keep your foot off of the gas pedal.

So the French

Begin their elections today (Don't fully understand their method, but it apparently takes some time).

And reports are that the "Far Right" is expected to do well...

Duh.

The current bunch welcomed a bunch of Muslims with no vetting at all into the country.

And like in any group of people, there were good ones and bad ones.

You never hear about the good ones, of course. They just quietly go about their lives. Most refugees are decent...

But the bad ones take a terrible toll. And yes, there are a bunch of bad ones in the "Refugees" that are making their way throughout western Europe.....welcomed by (among others) the French government. And the French are noticing that their crime rate is climbing, and it is nearly all Muslims doing it.

And people are surprised that LePen and others are gonna do well? 

The GOP just doesn't get it....

We don't want a modified Obamacare, nor Obamacare Lite, nor a "somewhat better" Obamacare, nor the current plan that they are "working on".

I want the REPEAL that was promised. Promised during the campaign.

FULL FUCKING REPEAL. Absolute full repeal.

Nothing less will do.

What a great idea!

If you are the guy in control.....

"A gun for every militiaman!" 


Except that the "Militiamen" are those who support Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro. 

Of course, regular citizens can't own guns, there have been confications. 

So only the military, the "Militia" (not what you and I would consider militia, but supporters of Maduro) and "private Security Companies" can purchase or own firearms. 

Maduro hopes to keep control over the country from what he labels "imperialist aggression."

Kinda like what the British had in mind, lo that many years ago....

The events

242 years ago show WHY we need a second amendment.

Men, free citizens with firearms and other weapons EQUAL to those of the "authorities", were able to fight back and to make sure that their voices were heard and that they were able to determine their destiny.

Things are the same today..... If that were the choice chosen.

An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed citizen is, of course, a serf.

That is being demonstrated today in Venezuela. 

Not much changed

Via Old NFO I bring you this:

So really, not much has changed over the years, has it???


'Twas also on this day in 1993

That the FBI proved that they were no longer the premiere law enforcement agency, but merely a puppet of the Clinton administration.

They attacked the compound (or what was left of it) with teargas at approximately 6 AM.
This led to a significant fire about 11:30, which killed 80 adults and 22 children.

To be fair, the FBI was handed a really rotten job, cleaning up after the mess that the ATF had made earlier in the year.
But the FBI, in an attempt to make a statement, in an operation cobbled together by Street agents with no knowledge of how to assault such a compound, really screwed the pooch, leading to the fire and subsequent deaths.

Remember them. The died at the hands of your benevolent government for the simple fact of wanting to live away from others, in the manner they wished, and worship as they wish. And the ATF, in an attempt to gain funding, caused such a debacle that the Government couldn't back down until the victims were dead.

Remember also that not ONE of the agents....Not ONE, refused their orders, even knowing that the service they worked for was in the wrong.

And remember that we, as a nation, stood by and watched it happen.
