So where are they?

Where are the protests from Black Lives Matter? Rioting in the streets and all that about dead black people.....

Or does Black on Black violence (and killing, , especially of women walking with 4 year old children) not matter?

Chicago passes 400 official shooting deaths this year.  Woman walking with man and 4 year old child killed, companions shot

Note: this happened a little after 5 in the evening...

(and, even though it makes me a Raciss to point this out, it (generally) doesn't happen in melanin deprived neighborhoods....) 

Overheard in the house:

As we prepare to go out to a festival on Sunday morning:

"What shirt should I wear?"

"You could wear the red one."

"Yeah, but then I'd never make it home......."

Kinda want.

Not too sure about the "barrel cooling vents", but I LIKE the look.

Next time I build a 1911 I may have to investigate further.

Lots of work to fit it and then finish it, either blue or nitride or whatever.

But it does look very cool.

Just so you know

Charlie Gard has passed after life support was withdrawn by the hospital in the UK.

I don't want to use him as an example of why "Socialized Medicine" is not a great idea....But realize that it was the National Health folks who successfully kept him from receiving (Experimental, and by no means a sure thing), treatment elsewhere until it was, likely, too late for him.

The issue isn't who paid for his treatment, it was that they wouldn't even let the parents take him elsewhere to try and help him.

The State owns the British children, apparently.

He shoulda killed 'em instead

68 years. People only get 20 years for killing someone. And that is before parole.

Bundy standoff supporter is sentenced to 68 years in prison.  He shoulda shot 'em, then he'd be out in less than 10 after parole and sentence reduction and all that.....

Cliven Bundy doesn't say he "doesn't have to pay" he says he doesn't owe the FEDERAL government (BLM) the grazing fees....but rather the STATE.

The Feds pointed firearms and other wise threatened the folks that had gathered to resist at the Bundy standoff.....why was that legal and not the other way around? Why do Federal agents get a pass when there is a confrontation especially a peaceful one.

What this means is that next time such a standoff occurs, there is no reason not to be violent. Peaceful resistance, (with or without firearms) leads to longer prison sentences than Murder does.

City people

And, no doubt, Democrat voters.

Emergency crews rescue missing tubers in Muskegon River.

They claim that they were told (and they believed?) that "the river went in a circle and would return them to the point they started".

Remember, these people's vote counts as much as yours.

Why our country is


There are jobs, good jobs, going wanting.  Jobs that don't need a Tech Degree, nor sometimes even a high school diploma. Just people who will work, and be clean and sober while doing it....

Yet they can't find workers to fill those jobs.
Because most applicants can't pass the drug test requirements.
(and, of course, if they are "out of work", why, the Federal and State governments will GIVE 'em Free Money, Free Food stamps, Free phone, Free rent, Free heath insurance).

And those 'Benefits" don't need a Drug Test. Why is that?

People make their choices. We make their choices not have consequences. If you want more of something, subsidize it....If we Drug Tested applicants for government aid, we'd reduce our budgets and FORCE folks to either be clean, or starve. Either way, our country would be better off.

Old school...

The problem with big trees for firewood, while they produce a LOT of wood for burning come winter...
Is that they make BIG rounds. Like 3 feet across.

I can pick up the ones that are 24" across, they only weight about 250. Not that hard to put onto the splitter. Roll 'em onto your knee and stand up straight.

The ones that are 36-40 inches across weight somewhere in the order of 500-650 lbs (I weighed three that I just couldn't roll onto my knee to pick up).

Hard for one guy to handle. Damp oak is HEAVY.

So I hadda get out the Wedge-and-Sledge to break 'em up into pieces I could handle.

Now THAT is work.
I'm gonna feel that all day long.

I can't stand the Honorable Representative Peter J Visclosky. His politics and mine are about as far apart as can be. Plus his primary choice of folks he represents (because the re-elect him every time) is unions, which I don't care for....

However, having an issue with a Federal Park in my area, and getting ZERO communication from management (I left detailed voice mail messages, no calls back and no action), I bit the bullet and called Visclosky's office.

A week later, they called me back for clarification and some other details.

Amazingly enough, shortly thereafter, I got calls from the Federal Park Superintendent.... and action. Problem solved.

He may be a raving Democrat, and represent Unions, Liberals, and Socialists over Conservatives, but when I asked his office for help, they delivered.

This is how it is supposed to work. 

I had always thought it was urban legend.....

So, today, I was doing a bit of cutting with a chainsaw. Somewhere, somehow, I misplaced one of the nuts that hold the bar onto the saw in the grass while changing a chain. (apparently, the nut departed this universe, as I combed the grass and even went over the area with a magnet....?) Not a big deal, I have a spare.....

So, when I was done, on my trip into town, I stopped at the Stihl dealer and picked up 2 extras, so that when I misplace one again, I would be prepared...

And there, as I live and breathe, I saw him. Dude had a more or less brand new 14 inch Stihl chainsaw and not one, not two, but THREE chains. Complaining that "none of them cut worth a damn and only made smoke".

Dude at the counter looked at him, then at me, then ran his finger over the chain.

"It's on backwards" he said. Both of us tried not to laugh.

Harry the whining homeowner looked at the chain.
Looked at the other chains. I stepped up and felt 'em....still sharp as factory new, just discolored from heat from friction.

"Here, let me show you" Counter Dude says.

Harry the whining homeowner just picked up his saw and chains and walked out.

How can anyone be so stupid?

I always figured that there was more to the story...

And it was all capitalism that drove it.

I have a guy who contacted me via Email for advice on pistols. However, I live in Indiana outside Chicago and he is in Oregon.....So my help is limited.

Anyone in the Eugene area (or Portland, he apparently lives in both) can help him out?

If so email me and I will put you in contact. Contact me at and I will put you in touch.

Second year in row!

We drew (last night) the winning tickets for the three gun raffle my gun club has been doing the past two years...

This is the second year that I have sold two of the three winners. Both times second and third place.

So, if you wanna win first, buy from someone else. If you wanna win one of the other two, buy from me next year.

ETA: Rich, Read your Email!

Mueller is on a witch hunt.

He's gotta find something to satisfy his DNC masters.

Remember, we are paying for him and his sycophants to keep digging.

I need your Google-Fu

How many acid attacks happened in Britain in the 70's?

How does this correlate in time with the importation of muslims middle easterners in job lots and/or "diversification"? ?

Can't seem to find any info. But I am betting there is a correlation.

Of course, I am a racist and a islamophobe. (and according to some, a rat bastard and a just plain old meanie, but that isn't important right now).  ....So I see things that the press and liberals (but I repeat myself) can't.....

If they can do it

with drugs....

You can bet that, at some point, someone will do it with C-4 . (or TATP, but the Jiggle might well set that off). 2-4 lbs of C-4 or Semtex will not do a plane any good, structural integrity wise...Plus just the terror part....

And when they do.......then how do you do security?

Nice try there, fellas

Nice way to try and bash the NRA:

"We Finally Know Why the NRA Didn’t Stand with Philando Castile After a Cop Killed Him"

Except that that isn't the mission of the NRA. That is, rather, the mission of the  ACLU (or the NAACP, maybe).    They are the ones who protect human rights and such.

Was Philando Castile MURDERED by a cop who was scared? Probably. Should the cop be charged with MURDER? I answer yes. But cops get away with actions that would put you and I in jail.

Cops actions are't part of the mission of the NRA. The are a Gun Rights organization. Conflating the two is only done as an attempt to denigrate and undermine the NRA. Saying that many people are confused as to why the NRA was silent on the murder is't really truth.

This is what they let into the country

Britain reaps the harvest:

So many acid attacks (by muslims, but they somehow fail to mention that) in England that the Newspapers are giving instructions on how to give first aid treatment to people attacked with acids or other chemicals.

Acid attack first aid: What you need to do immediately to help victims
Act as quickly as possible to minimise damage to the eyes, skin and surrounding tissues

When one makes friends with a snake, one should not be surprised when one is bitten....

Bringing in these folks who hate your culture, hate your values, hate you because of your religion? Allowing them to settle in your country with no requirement to assimilate? What, exactly, did these folks think was gonna happen?

Perhaps he does not wanna meet

Vince Foster.

Glenn Simpson, the founder of Fusion GPS, the espionage firm which ordered the completely fake Trump ‘dirty dossier’, which John McCain then handed to the FBI, and which Buzzfeed News then published as actual news, has cancelled his testimony before Congress next week.

He'd better have some good life insurance (In the form of documents that can be turned over should anything "happen" to him) if he's gonna survive past the end of the year......

One wonders if we should check on the locations of his wife, kids, parents, etc.

Just sayin'. 

Because Muslim

Read this about pork being banned in public schools in Austria. 
(and it is happening here too)

One more nail in the coffin of Europe, bending over for their Muslim Invaders.

I would bet that in 10 years they will try to keep bacon off of sandwiches in restaurants and pork out of stores here in the US too.

Watch this.

Truth hurts.

But it is true nonetheless. 



Shades of Vince Foster:

Yeah, everyone who is looking into Hillary's Emails commits "Suicide" in a motel room with a tank of helium.

Helium is an odd way to go. And everyone leaves a note telling everyone clearly that "no foul play whatsoever"...and the authorities believe it... And a receipt for the helium conveniently placed so the investigators cannot miss it....

People connected to investigations into the Clinton's wrondoings activities seem to perish in interesting and obscure ways....

Lots of 'em.

Even folks from Hati:

Premature legislation:

There may be a time when there is a good reason to impeach Trump. But nothing (yet) has risen to that level, despite the hopes of the Democrats. (which would leave them with Pence, whom I think they would like even less, BTW)..

But nope, one idiot chose to file articles of impeachment against TheDonald.  despite the fact that he is on firm legal ground in his firing of Comey.

Thing is, you can only cry "Wolf!" so many times....which is what this is. One wonders if the country will care next time they do so....If they REALLY have anything, will anyone believe 'em or even pay attention?

Trump Derangement example number 5134.

You should read


I cannot confirm the numbers, but they sound right...and plausible. If you can confirm or disprove them, please do so in comments . I'd be interested.

Yeah, I know, believing this makes me a racist. Don't care about being called that anymore....That card' has been played so many times it is worn out.

Found via Feral Irishman (I, at least, admit where I steal content from, unlike some bloggers)

I don't know

if this latest Trump debacle is real or just another thing the Left has ginned up like all the other "scandals" they have been tossing to the Media....

I DO know that if the press had tried even 20% as hard to find shit on Barry the O over the last 8.5 years, they'd have found a lot. But they didn't look, so they didn't. (See also the whole "Birther" thing, and many other items that COULD have been scandals.....)

Or if they had tried even 10% as hard to find shit on Hillary the Pantsuit...we KNOW there was trash to be taken out there, but the press couldn't honestly bother to look for it, nor to honestly report it if they did find it.

It isn't the hard look they are giving Trump that bothers is that they refused to give a similar hard look at Barry and Hillary and their actions that bothers me.

And that, my friends, is why the Press isn't an honest profession anymore. Once, they kept everyone honest. Now, they give us propaganda.

And I know that the "Special Counsel" Robert Mueller, is a joke, wasting tens of thousands of tax dollars per day....He hasn't done more than hire a bunch of his friends and other "approved" people.....He hasn't yet secured the Server that the DNC is using as it's main argument that "the Russians" "Meddled" in our elections....Why hasn't such a crucial piece of evidence been secured? It is, after all, evidence in a Federeal Investigation, so the DNC no longer gets a say......And the press is letting him get away with it.

Perhaps those who say that it is not only the DNC folks, but the "Deep State" establishment that is gunning for Trump. I dunno, but I don't like what I smell here. 

Cynical thought for the day:

This will shock you....

Sometimes Journalists LIE. (One could be charitable and just see it as a perception problem, I guess.....)
Sheriff refutes journalist's account of traffic stop.  Watch the video (skip the middle, it is just radio traffic and ticket writing) and decide.

Stopped for not signalling? OK, maybe bullshit, but still within the rules.

Everything else was polite and professional.

I wish half my traffic stops had been as nice and polite (to be fair, a great number of them were) and professional.

And yet, no word

on the US building a wall or otherwise slowing (or even stopping) the flow of "migrants" to the US.

Bill Gates says Europe must stop African Migrants from entering Europe

Y'know what I find odd?

I find it odd that the computer server for the DNC know, the one that "The Russians" are supposed to have hacked just before they "hacked the elections" or whatever....

The first piece of evidence in the chain of (vague) accusations that Mr. Mueller is spending inordinate amounts of taxpayer funds "investigating" and all....

Yeah, that server has never been forensically examined by the FBI....Nor any government agency. Nor is it being held in any secure state for evidence....nope. It isn't secure at all. 

The only entity that claims to have examined the server is one employed by the DNC. 

Why is that the case? Why hasn't the FBI done any examinations? Or at least secured the device in order to secure evidence that may be on it?

Either the FBI is a political hack and a joke as an investigative agency, (and Mr. Mueller is, apparently as bad, since he hasn't bothered to do anything about this key piece of evidence either....), or they are simply outrageously inept......on the level of ineptness that the BATF folks have exhibited.

Or, as many have said, the "Russian" meme is simply that, a meme, a lie, a made up story, and the "investigation" is merely a witch hunt.

Pick one, you can't have it both ways.

Why do businesses

Once you do business with them via the Internet feel that this gives them to right to blow up your inbox with promotional emails for a product that I JUST BOUGHT?

I mean, yes, I am sure that somewhere I missed that (already) checked box that said "please, send me 42 emails about your product THIS WEEK, even though I am doing business with you for the first time  (and now the last).

Yes, I wanted those 42 emails, even though I got along fine without them last week....And I am SURE that I selected that box, not that it was prechecked to turn on the flood of endless emails...

And yes, it is because of that that I will shop your competitors next time. They might not be any better at screwing with me by blowing up my inbox without my permission....But I bet one of them won't take 4 pages to unsubscribe from their emails either.

The Tyranny of the State

Charlie Gard:

Yeah, you probably know the name. A young male child, not yet a year old. One who has a likely incurable genetic disease. A child in the care of the State....Socialized Medicine.

A child who has been handed a death sentence by that same State. The State will no longer pay for his medical care. 

On the one hand, this is likely a good decision. Under State care, Charlie will never get better. They have no way to heal him, no way to improve his condition. Likely no one does. The State has chosen not to spend more money trying to save a child they know they cannot save.

That isn't the point.

The point is that the parents haven't given up, and have raised through donations enough money to take their child elsewhere to try other possible treatments. And, if they can do so without cost to the State, they have the right to do so.

Failing that, the parents want their child to die at home, not in a hospital. They have been denied that measure of control as well. The State Knows Better.

However, the State has decided that they cannot do that. That they cannot have their child back, that the parents do not have control over the fate of their child. That the State has chosen Charlie's fate, and the State, with people who (supposedly) know better and who have no interest other than financial can make the decision for the child. They wouldn't allow any transport to other countries for possible experimental treatment that might (maybe, but probably not) save this child. They cannot allow anyone to know that their medical science is inferior to any others, and they must maintain that the STATE is all powerful and has ultimate control over the fate of a child once entrusted to their care.

Their decision is likely the logical one. Desperate measure seldom succeed. But there is no cost to the State for the attempt to save young Charlie Gard's life. no risk for the State, no cost, nothing. Nothing but loss of prestige, and loss of control.

Thus they condemn a dying child to the trash heap.

This only works in a place where the People are disarmed, however. They can do this because the People have no way to oppose the State.

If ever there was a reason to oppose Big Government, this is one.

A different viewpoint:

Met a British guy today.

He wished me a "Happy High Treason Day"....

Independence Day

It ain't the "4TH of July."...It is INDEPENDENCE Day.

The day the New nation declared that it was a Nation, and no longer under the control of the King. Not just a new nation, but a new TYPE of nation, under new principles, under new rules....Thus was born the United States of America. A country like no other.

Remember the reason for the fireworks and the celebration and the cookouts and the day off work. Remember WHY we have all of those on this day.

And say a prayer of thanks for the document that they later produced which made this nation the greatest place on earth. And a thank you to whomever you pray to that you live here (if you do), as free as any place on this planet.

Now go enjoy your hot dogs and fireworks.

How it really works.:

(Which is mostly why it is "Shared Risk).
Found at: The zombie apocalypse survival homestead

So it would appear

That Illinois's time has come....or at least the beginning of it.

They'v finally run out of "Other People's Money".

Illinois Must start paying Medicaid bills. Additional $239,000,000.00 each month PLUS an additional BILLION in the next year.

And they don't have the cash.

They haven't had a budget in 3 or 4 years. (How can a state operate without a budget?....Oh yeah , when it is run by Democrats) ETA: Even NEW JERSEY has to have a budget or the State shuts down. How does Illinois operate?

If I had a pension from the State of Illinois or a subsidiary,  I'd be worried.
