The World Sucks


First they came for the eee-vill "Saturday Night Specials" and you did nothing because you're just a "sportsman". Then they came for the eee-vill "assault weapons" and you did nothing because you're a "sportsman". Then they came for the eee-vill .50BMG and you did nothing because YOU'RE A "SPORTSMAN". Then they came for your grandfather's deer rifle because it's an eee-vill cop-killing sniper death weapon and now you can F***ING CHOKE AND DIE. 'If oath-breaking cops choose to enforce tyrannical evil, "cop killer" bullets are just what we the people will need.'

There is no such thing as a good cop. 'Because “keeping our kids safe from alcohol, even if we have to blow their brains out, is worth it”.'

THEY ARE ALL LIARS AND THIEVES. We used to hang thieves and it's past time we resumed the practice.

How much more of this- blasphemy until the Founders rise from their graves and tear these monsters limb from limb?


"...[V]ictimized once by a burglar and a second time by the state...." When is it morally justifiable to shoot a cop?

When I say THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A GOOD COP, I mean, '...NYPD Officer Pedro Serrano secretly recorded a supervisor telling him to focus his stops on young black males. When he testified to that effect, he was ostracized by many of his brother officers as a "rat."' Remember that - "brother officers". They know who the thieves and serial rapists and child molesters are. They have beers with them at the end of their shifts and visit each other's homes for barbeque on the weekends. They donate sick days to each other and testi-lie on each other's reports. ALL OF THEM. I have told you, any cop who tries to not be evil is driven out and destroyed.

"Police have the power and authority to make people obey them at gunpoint, it is a crime not to cooperate with them...." What kind of creatures do you think will be drawn to that kind of "work"?

I've been telling you, rule of law is dead. Innocent citizens have no peaceable recourse remaining.

Not... sure this belongs in Lighter, except Medical Advancement: Whole-body transplants have appeared in many SF stories - Niven's Known Space organleggers, Bujold's Vorkosigan saga, Hoyt's Darkship series, I think even Weber's Honorverse touched on it with the Mesan Alignment. That is apparently being worked on. -Note all the examples which come to mind are the villains of the stories. However, my own fictional utopia explores a similar path, partial cloning to grow replacements for specific parts - which I just now realized was inspired by The Prophet.

But speaking of science-fictional Lighter News, constant boost is a staple of Hard SF - keep boosting, flip over at midpoint and boost the other way. Minimal velocity at each end, Meaningful Fractions of Lightspeed in the middle, even with what seem to be miniscule accellerations because it adds up. That is being worked on. No, it's not a fusion torch capable of 70+ meters accelleration, but it's on the same road.

The World Sucks

Another 200+ mile day, with the headgasket getting worse and I had to use the reserve fuel 'cause I didn't want to stop at a gas station 'cause I wasn't sure the car would start again. And the new shoes kinda suck. Trying Bar's Leaks tomorrow when everything's cooled off, and I have Friday off to fiddle otherwise.

I don't know what to make of this Mississippi mess. Looks like gaming the system all the way around to me, with no thought for principle. I mean fer cryin' out loud it's not like nobody could find the rulebook.

Rule of law is dead. No peaceable recourse remains.

Remember false-flag AHSA? Deja phooey. -Ask 'em how to field-strip a 1911 or AR.

Unions Make Everything Worse Forever. (Which is why you can't buy Twinkies anymore.)

And cops are unionized....

I told you, if the stuff - any stuff - weren't illegal, it wouldn't be worth billions and people wouldn't be slaughtering each other over it - AND I WAS RIGHT, AGAIN. "The FDA, whenever they put their hands on something, ultimately it's bad for the American consumer." I TOLD YOU THAT TOO.

Someone tries to kill a couple cops and the law and orrrrrder conserrrrvatives get all upset. As usual, they have the wrong end of the equation. Not every cop is a selfless stainless hero, and not everyone who wants to kill a cop is a villain. They never question why someone would want to put them down. They never look at themselves.

Also, this meshes with a thought I've often had, while entering "secure" buildings in my courier work - they think they're locking the "bad" people out, but are only locking themselves in. Like all the government schools. The kids are trapped in cages and no one, at all, is physically, technically, or emotionally capable of defending them. The monster can just go about his work until he runs out of rounds, or the thugs show up to bullet-hose everyone - which they don't of course, standing around outside complimenting each other's ninja suits while innocent children are brutally murdered.

I seriously wonder if they wouldn't off some of their own to justify "emergency measures". -Maybe that explains why the government is buying Fudd fodder. It's not paranoia IF.

And now comes this, licking the boots that kick us. No. How long until he gets those rifles back, the same way we got all that oil and scrap metal we sold to Japan in the 1930s?

ARKANSAS GETS CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY! Dang! I'm'a put them on the relocation list!

Another thought on 3-Gun - expect to lose your brass. There's too much else happening, target reset, scoring, clear-and-safe this weapon then clear-and-safe that weapon, the next shooter loads-and-makes-ready his weapons and you need to get out of the way - there is no time to hunt for every last case and hull.

Though I did redeliver Saint John's barrel to the gunsmith to get the sights repaired, which should be done in a week or two.

The World Sucks

Working on the car.... Begin by flushing coolant. Open drain plug, disconnect this hose and that hose, jiggle the other hose until it starts draining in some kind of siphon action, flush with garden hose. Mix Bar's Leaks with warm water as directed - this little car has a small cooling system and doesn't take a lot of fluid. Idle for five minutes with cabin heater on full. Let cool and top off - no, already overfilled. Next in the instructions is to idle for 15 minutes, but instead drive to gas station to fill up, drive to store to buy more regular coolant. Next, let cool and top off again - not bothering because, Run at high idle for 20 minutes - I think the drive did that. Drain and flush again, then "Leave drain open and radiator cap off for 12 to 24 hours." Refill tomorrow with conventional coolant/water mix.

But, when stopping for fuel and fluids, she already starts smoother, like she used to. A promising sign. Observed indicated temperature was normal.

Reconnect hoses, reinstall drain plug, refill with coolant/water mix, drive to library for bandwidth, taking the long way around to reach normal operating temperature... all seems well. Carrying spare coolant, I always do anyway. Later, added more but I expected to as it repopulated all the pipes and such. -And as I go to open the cap I notice the upper main radiator hose is vacuum-collapsed. Which at least indicates there's no leak. Reinflated as soon as I released the cap.

This Bar's Leaks stuff might actually work and the car might actually be fixed. The real test will be a typical 100+ mile, 30+ stop-and-restart day.

Still not going to Appleseed this weekend though, can't justify the expense and gah I need to just sit around the place for the weekend, for a change. Also I haven't fired my LTR for nearly four years. Likewise I'm thinking of skipping the Plotner precision rifle match on the 13th - la Infanta needs more working-up and Precious, as yet, has no optics, and also needs more bench time. And besides fuel and range fees, and climbing that hill to that club is probably what started the headgasket going.

KABA needs money. Send some.

Any cop who tries to not be evil... and the "system" has no legitimacy.

Speaking of no legitimacy, Michael Bloomberg is a genocidal racist who belongs on a chain gang or a gallows. For his crimes.

Speaking of racism, "...[I]f Zimmerman is found not guilty... Sanford will not be the only community that could potentially see rioting." Do you have both bullets and beans? And water. Don't forget the water. And an alternate source of cooking heat- what happens when the real racists decide to drive their food-stamp-scammed Cadillacs, or the pickup truck they just stole from your neighbor, into the substations or pumping stations? How long have I been telling you now, get out of the cities?

Speaking of getting out of the cities, in my fictional utopia most people have. There are no grids to go down, no master shutoff switches to flip. It's not paranoia if they really do want to leave us freezing in the dark on their bigoted whims.

I stopped listening to Michael Savage years ago. He doesn't believe in freedom.

    A couple years ago I changed library branches, because they had a county sheriff deputy in the one I used to go to.

    Yeah, guess what.

    Fortunately, thanks to Michael G.'s superior donation of a functioning laptop, I don't have to spend much time in the library anymore, just picking up and dropping off. I know where some good wardriving spots are for high-bandwidth needs, and I have two reasonably healthy batteries.

    Project Gunwalker, and collaborationist media. With, um, one exception-who-will-be-fired-any-day-now, Old Media doesn't know how to investigate anything anymore, only parrotting press releases and letting themselves be led like cattle. It can't be a "failed gun-tracking operation" if there was no tracking. The only way the operation "failed" was the peasants intended victims found out about it.

    Hey great, the rest of the world is so ticked off at us they're not going to share information on real terrorists with us anymore! Not that we were paying attention when they did anyway. If Barack Hussein Obama WEREN'T trying to destroy America WHAT WOULD HE BE DOING DIFFERENT?

    What will you do, where can you go, when the thin mask of civilization is ripped from the face of your city? Too damn late now isn't it.

    Some things need to be said about race: 'My students had only the vaguest notion of who pays for government services. For them, it was like a magical piggy bank that never goes empty. One black girl was exhorting the class on the need for more social services and I kept trying to explain that people, real live people, are taxed for the money to pay for those services. “Yeah, it come from whites,” she finally said. “They stingy anyway.” “Many black people make over $50,000 dollars a year and you would also be taking away from your own people,” I said. She had an answer to that: “Dey half breed.” The class agreed. I let the subject drop.' 'I have had children tell me to my face as they struggled with an assignment. “I cain’t do dis,” Mr. Jackson. “I black.”' Compare and contrast to, say, Thomas Sowell, Larry Elder, Colion Noir. (If Larry Elder were still on the air I'd fix my car radio....) Obviously the race is not inferior. The culture is.

  • "...[N]o laws were broken, and no malevolent behavior was observed, but he was arrested [and robbed] anyway."

    After the (short) drive to the library and back, the car still seems to be behaving normally. I had feared a blockage - Bar's Leaks warns against mixing with coolant, which is why I spent so much time trying to drain the system - but the upper main radiator hose, which had vacuum-collapsed yesterday, was fully inflated after today's drive and of an appropriate temperature, indicating coolant is flowing correctly.

    Cleenin mah gunz.... Saint John appears to run rather clean - no gas system to bother with, most fouling is in the barrel, which is at the gunsmith. No evidence of increased wear or damage from the last 80+ rounds of factory birdshot and five factory slugs, despite most of his current parts being over 100 years old and the fiber recoil buffer vanishing possibly before I was born. ALL HAIL. Reassembling with the original long barrel and short magazine, so at least he remains functional.

    Moving on to his later creation, the 1911's barrel... either needs replacement or I need to never not apply the second coat of Lee Liquid Alox to my cast bullets. Fortunately I invested in Lewis Lead Removers, both .45 and .38/9mm (and later a Hoppe's(?) .44), long ago:

    The only thing wrong with the Lewis Lead Remover is, it's now exclusively stocked by Brownell's, which still stocks and email-advertises HS Precision products, which are endorsed by escaped murderer Lon Horiuchi.

    But that rifling is really shallow:

    When I talk to the 'smith when I pick up Saint John's barrel, I'll ask if he has any 1911 .45 barrels laying around.

    Light surface rust on the rear sight, where my sweat-soaked arm brushed against it. Also the backstrap, under the grip safety's beavertail. It was hot last weekend.

    Finally, Precious... is. Still some fiddling needed with the sights. Want 45-degree on-bore offset sights, and of course optics. $omeday.... The Yankee Hill bolt-on gas block is holding, not drifting. If it were I'd detect more loseness in the handguard, as the old-style triangular nosecap was also loosened. Want that pinned Windham block, which is still not available separately. This... is not what I want, I want a same-plane rail so I can hang a straight or 45-degree front sight off it.

    Another thought on 3-Gun matches: There is a reason the AR family's standard rear sight comes with two apertures. I ended up using the larger by the end of the match.

    Speaking of totalitarian fascist Bloomberg, "Where were our heroic investigative journalists when we needed them?" Probably partying on Mikey's Gulfstream.

    Workman points out we're all on "trial". Even with the prosecution bungling so blatantly, there are many indications the judge is just as blatantly biased, and I think there's a real possibility of Zimmerman being fed to the mob whatever the jury decides.

    Similarly, I think there's a possibility of riots no matter what the obviously-biased judge's verdict is. If Zimmerman is found not guilty, the racists will think the "system" has "failed" them and they are no longer bound by it, and so will declare open season on civilization. If Zimmerman is found "guilty", they'll... figure all their racism is justified and declare open season on civilization. *cough*NBACHAMPIONSHIP"CELEBRATION"*cough*cough* It's not racism if they really do use any excuse to burn their OWN neighborhoods to the ground.

    It's not racism if self-avowed racists with a documented history of violence really are massing to riot, with our tax dollars. They're all so worked up now, so full of hate, how can they not riot? Even if George Zimmerman is sentenced to be guillotined in public, does anyone still connected to reality think the mobs will peacefully go home?

    A fascist recommends a fascist to replace a fascist. CHANGE!

    Cops - I have two very simple questions, requiring very straight yes-or-no answers:

  • Does a woman have the natural, pre-existing, HUMAN right to use lethal force to defend herself against a rapist?
  • Does that same woman have the same right to defend herself against YOUR BROTHER IN BLUE?

    Hint: Both answers should be the same.

    SMLE Fan observes "law"-abiding no longer applies when "law" is whatever some thug with a badge, or bureaucrat with an agenda, says it is. Something I observed a couple days ago, as have the Street and the Gulch. All we want is to be left alone. We're not the ones carjacking and home-invading and knocking over liquor stores and serially raping people under color of authority.... Many times I have asked of cops, What "law" would you not enforce? What order would you not obey? The obvious question in this case is, What "law" would you not obey? The pragmatists and "sportsmen" have not thought this through.

    Question o' the Year: "Are the whites going to riot if George Zimmerman is found guilty?"

    With matching Visual Aids.

    Seen on the lists:

    I picked up a folding grocery carrier for my car's trunk for $8. It is black, matching the lining of my trunk, has two main compartments, one insulated with a zipper top, a number of pockets and net pockets around the outside and velcro hooks on the bottom to prevent it from sliding. I put it near the back of my trunk but with a gap between the back of the carrier and the back of the trunk. I put some empty plastic sand bags and garden bags in the open topped compartment to make the carrier stay erect. Then in the zipper top compartment and pockets without nets I put some social survival equipment I'd prefer remained discreet. Between the carrier and the back of the trunk I placed a precious important tool that was too long to fit inside. Since the tool is also black, like the carrier and the trunk, the couple of inches that stick past the sides of the carrier are very unnoticeable.

    To get the needed tools and equipment to the trunk without letting my neighbors see, I dug out a cardboard box that an electric heater had come in. It was about the size of a box for a flat screen TV. I was able to put the long tool in the box diagonally and the rest around it. Then I took an 'item of furniture' out to my trunk. Once the box was in the trunk I was able to quickly put the contents in place. I left the empty box in the trunk until I returned from a trip. No one had to know that the 'item of furniture' I returned to the house was now an empty box.

    When I make my action-shooting videos, I start with the still photos I took early in the day, as soon as setup is done but before all the walkthroughs, clipboard them into Windows Paint, and use that to draw all those colored lines, saving the result with a slightly different filename. When those are done, and the voiceovers for which I bang out a simple script for myself, I dump that whole folder into PowerDirector and drag-drop everything into place. All those colored lines, ugh....

    PowerDirector, and comparable video editing programs, involve HUNNERDS N HUNNERDS OF FIDDLY LITTLE MOUSE MOVEMENTS. I haven't found it necessary but SMLE Fan points out one can use Windows Control Panel, or I presume an equivalent in another OS, to slow down the mouse, i.e. reducing its travel speed, resulting in more precise movement.

    $IGH. There's a regular vendor, Ruger Lady, with a table FULL of Ruger revolvers, mostly single-action. $IGH. She had a 4-5/8" Single Six in .32HRM, didn't bother checking the price. :( And several regular Single Sixes in .22LR, various lengths, sights, vintages, and finishes, to say nothing of the plethora of Blackhawks. Elsewhere, some horribly-overpriced primers and powder and .22LR, some M193-equivalent from various makers as low as $0.50/round. Saw a Makarov or two for under $300 still - not to be sneered at, nearly indestructible, and 9x18mm is more available than .380ACP at present. Got Saint John's barrel back from the gunsmith, who said he "Silver-soldered the heck out of it" but won't re-Cerakote it until I break it again, heh. Also a couple little things - NiteIze LED upgrade for AA Mini Maglite, $4.50 - this is the one with three LEDs. I already have the brighter single-diode model but it appears to have a loose connection and it was right there on the table for under five bucks. For $10, a box of six cheap Chicom one-hand pocketknives with pocket clips - and now I have six of them. For wun dollah, the belt-loop adapter for the Uncle Mike's Kydex paddle holsters, which I paid ten or more to order from the 'Nets a year or two ago - now I have a spare. And finally for another ten bucks:

    Because ten bucks (marked $15). And it looks kewl. Tight (had to dig out my plastic bushing wrench), especially on the return stroke, but a drop of oil and a bunch of dry-cycling and it seems okay.

    Of course now it won't fit in a UM84....

    Speaking of my 1911, I'm'a apply the second coat of LLA to that other batch of bullets-I-haven't-loaded-yet, then painstakingly intersperse them with the one-coat batch in my cartridge boxes. I have seen existing barrel leading disappear after a session shooting bullets with LLA, so I hope this will solve the keyholing problem. Also I talked to the same gunsmith and he said a lot of 1911s have shallow rifling. This is probably an ammunition problem and I can't really afford a replacement barrel anyway, trying to save up for other things.

    Prosecutorial misconduct? “...[T]he government’s statement of facts is flawed....” “...Suppressed potential … evidence [and] misstated [its] claim....” “...[A] law enforcement witness was himself under criminal investigation.” "Misconduct"? I doubt they're capable of any other kind.

    Oh look, the thugs have stopped pretending.


    [Later moved to Suckage] Breaking News: George Zimmerman found Not Guilty. So what's next, racist hate crimes against anyone lighter-skinned than Trayvon Martin, or the judge overrules the jury to feed that crocodile? SMLE Fan, who is there-ish, has suggestions.

    Misconduct roundup:

  • "The special prosecutor in the George Zimmerman case has fired her information technology director, who last month testified that he found evidence on Trayvon Martin's cell phone that Zimmerman's lawyers say the state never turned over...."
  • Facebook censors conservative or liberty-oriented pages but allows an open call for premeditated murder of a man judged innocent by a jury.
  • Yes there has been violence.
  • Obama "calls for calm" and implies the failed lynching is a "tragedy", and blames... all of us for "gun violence". When George Zimmerman is torn limb-from-limb by a racist mob, will Obama go on another 9-figure Hawaiian AirForceOne vacation? If Obama really wanted to "combat gun violence" it would be Eric Holder and Rahm Emanuel swinging from streetlights.
  • "...[D]isgraced himself and his office, made a mockery of our legal system and exacerbated racial tensions in our country, making them worse than they have been in years."
  • Astute Observation o' the Day.

    Lil' pr0n for ya. From the 3-Gun match two weeks ago, here's Saint John in company with a 590, a 930, something else, and the elusive KSG seen in the wild:

    Precious is in the middle:

    The only non-AR was a SIG somethingorother, which also took STANAGs. Some folks are really inve$ted in 3-Gun:

    Yeah no. My shotgun was purchased for $140 and bartered to me for manual labor, my rifle was built a piece at a time over half a year, and my pistol was $320 used, maybe $500 total by now. As for the KSG, I appear to have not recorded any useful video of it in use, but I don't recall witnessing any issues with it (except perhaps a deficiency of preparatory dry-practice, but that's a damn epidemic). Maybe next time I'll get better video.

    Stages Two, Three and Four of the 3-Gun match from two weeks ago are processed and ready for upload. Unfortunately they're huge, the wardriving spots I had in mind appear to not allow high-speed uploads, and the only practical way for me to get them onto my YouTube channel is to spend an hour or more at the library, which may or may not be infested with the army of occupation on any particular day.

    And because I dry-practiced, particularly with my shotgun with correctly-weighted dummy rounds which I made for that purpose, I appear to have ended up 6th of 27 overall. Dramatic improvement... now that I Know My Weapon.

    Oh yeah, those SIX hanging clay targets at the end of Stage Four, some people dumping whole PMAG30s trying to break them - I took SEVEN shots with Precious. ;D

    Yeah Saint John was rockin', blammity-blam. I need to fix HatCam!!! before the next 3-Gun match so you can Behold the Awsumm.

    ...Talk of the Kel-Tec pistol Zimmerman was using and some bigoted ignorami think he was out to murder someone because he carried a round in the chamber. 9_9 But srsly, get more dry-practice. Examining my own 1911, into which a previous owner hammered an LPA rear sight, I see I can use that as a step to work the slide against a barricade or such one-handed, which is a tactic being taught at some of the academies these days.

    And here they are: 3-Gun from 30 June, Stages One - Two - Three - Four.

When I win SuperMegaBall I'm'a launch a CNC arms factory in Wyoming and turn out cheap, simple defensive pistols. Blowback, fixed barrel, double-action-only, no unnecessary parts, design principles adhering to the Gospel of Saint John. Might even use existing Makarov magazines. And you know there are aftermarket drop-(or press-and-pin-)in barrels to convert existing 9x18mm Makarovs to 9x17mm - using existing Makarov barrels would also reduce cost. One presumes surplus barrels can then be found for the reverse, depending what cartridge you can find. -Yeah I think I'd make them in 9x18, enough Makarovs have entered the country since the Evil Empire died its deserved death, you can even get high-end fighting rounds from Hornady and maybe Cor-Bon, and it's a more substantial round than 9x17.

Mine is the white outline Millet, but it works on the Airsoft 1911 with "standard military" sights and a MUCH heavier spring that I use for indoor practice. I simply turn the top of the slide in towards my hip (after slapping the mag on my thigh....malf drills are malf drills, after all), press the middle into my hip bone (either at 2 o'clock or 4 o'clock) and push down briskly. (reverse for left handed use...you do drill with your off hand, don't you?) In fact, you can successfully rack a 1911 with one hand just using your thigh...jeans are best for this operation, for obvious reasons and it is "uncomfortable" but if the alternative is getting shot...well suck it up, cupcake. The operation is similar to the "belt rack", but instead you press the top of the slide into your trouser seam...your thigh and jeans offer enough resistance to rack the slide, especially if the hammer is already cocked. Be prepared for some bruising from the sights.' Obviously these techniques apply to pistols other than the 1911. Also obviously this risks multiple Rule Two violations, so dry-practice these with dummy rounds behind closed doors, not at a match. ;) (You do have dummy rounds, don't you?)

My last stop today was open late, which I knew from previous experience, so I killed time by getting that tire puncture repaired and leeching bandwidth from one of my warparking spots. I park outside the metered area and hike into that section of town because F*** THE REVENUERS THAT'S WHY. Well, I arrived at the usual time for that particular customer and rang the doorbell and they didn't answer. So I sat down at a nearby cafe table and read House of Steel for about a quarter hour and tried again and they still didn't answer. So I hiked 15-odd blocks, moved the car to another unmetered slot a couple blocks further along, and hiked another 15-odd blocks back to the place, which finally received the package. Then I hiked yet another 15-odd blocks back to the car. There's another reason I didn't just pay for parking.

    A biker is riding by the zoo, when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage.
    Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.
    The biker jumps off his bike, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.
    Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.
    A New York Times reporter has watched the whole event.
    The reporter addressing the biker says, "Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I saw a man do in my whole life."
    The biker replies, "Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger, and acted as I felt right."
    The reporter says, "Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a journalist from the New York Times, you know, and tomorrow's paper will have this story on the front page... So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?'"
    The biker replies, "I'm a U.S. Marine, and I'm a Republican."
    The journalist leaves.
    The following morning the biker buys The New York Times to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:

    I just got reminded of that: '...Zimmerman was one of two people who helped pull four people to safety along Interstate 4 after a roll-over crash, which ABC felt compelled to remind its audience “is less than a mile from where Zimmerman shot (Trayvon) Martin.”'

    So it's a light courier load today and I'm done by ten and I head back to the hovel.

    Later I get a text telling me I have an airport run this afternoon, which by itself is not difficult but annoying for the lack of TSA-agents'-rotting-corpses-dangling-from-streetlights-along-Airport-Way.

    Then I get another text for a pickup down south, where I've been before and have bookmarked in my GPS, for delivery out east where I expect my GPS to direct me.

    So I head south and... the one block stretch of road leading to the pickup is closed. Ten bloody minutes detouring for the pickup.

    Then the destination isn't in my GPS. Which I know is out of date and it would make more economic sense to just buy a new one than pay for updates but I'm trying to save money.

    On the way down to the pickup I saw that "free"way was already jammed with Friday afternoon traffic, so I detoured out thataway, thinking I'd figure it out once I got in the area.

    Finally stopped at a gas station to buy a new paper map which had the street I wanted - which was Southwest Such-and-Such Court, not Southeast like it said on the package label. It wasn't far, being a separate and smaller "city" smooshed into the general urban sprawl but with its own baseline streets for division and numbering, but DAMN.

    By this time I'm quite late for the airport pickup, which I usually meet at the terminal. Now I have to fight my way back across town, in Friday afternoon traffic.

    Fortunately I've lived in this part of town for about twenty years and I know that street cuts across there to this avenue which intersects with Airport Way, thus avoiding some miles of waiting-to-get-on-the-"free"way nonsense. But when I do finally reach the terminal, there's no one at the ticket counter and of course they're not going to leave the package sitting out where I can get it.

    Phoned a couple numbers, one of which was a call center in Missouri, trying to get someone to show up. Another quarter-hour blown.

    Then I have to crawl back the way I came in more Friday afternoon traffic to make that delivery.

    New rule: If I'm expecting an airport run I will not take any other job for two hours before. Because it will go wrong.

    It's bacon time.

    It's not paranoia if they really are trying to plant child porn on our computers. And of course the government can be trusted with all the passwords.... Linux is looking better all the time.

    They hate us...
    ...and want us to die. And they don't like freedom of speech either.

    They are trying to start a race war. ALL WE WANT IS TO BE LEFT ALONE.

This government is illegitimate.

    There's some excitement among space enthusiasts about the upcoming remake of Cosmos - but having looked up the new host on Wiki and seeing his various connections, I'm wondering if there will be a Haliburton Episode, an Exxon Episode, and an NRA Episode. >:-[ Srsly I'm expecting someone - Sheila Jackson-Lee for example - to blame the Tea Party for the extinction of the dinosaurs.

    There is no such thing as a good cop.

    And any who try to not be evil are driven out and destroyed.

    However bad you think things are... they're worse.

    When I say they don't see us as human beings, this is what I mean: "...[T]he mother of a man killed in the Benghazi terrorist attack says his death wasn’t phony."

    Arizona Citizens Defense League latest newsletter: 'Can what happened to George Zimmerman in Florida happen in Arizona? It already has. In 1997, Arizona’s Republican controlled legislature, at the behest of law enforcement, passed a law negating “innocent until proven guilty” in self-defense situations. The new law required that anyone who defended themselves had to admit to the underlying “crime” then prove their own innocence by a “preponderance of evidence.” As with all laws making it easier for law enforcement to avoid real police work, the unintended consequences were brutal.' When Vanderboegh posts the clipart of the hanged elephant, and when I say THE ONLY GOOD COP IS A DEAD COP....

  • "The latest SWAT Team outrage involved holding small children at gunpoint during a home invasion — all in retaliation over their father having quarreled with a drunken off-duty cop at a veterans lodge."
  • "He attacked and tried to kill a woman who, during the attack, got his wallet from him, and yet the Boston PD was unable to even arrest him."


    Some time ago I made a particular bumper sticker - AND I WAS RIGHT, AGAIN.

    It's not paranoia IF....

    A LEGAL SYSTEM, NOT A JUSTICE SYSTEM. Send help. And how is this lynching morally different from the one still being attempted on George Zimmerman?

    Similarly, '...[T]he judge proclaimed from the bench that those who support the Second Amendment should be “ashamed”.'

    Missouri WTF?

    Visual Aid o' the Day.

  • "A 95 year old man who lived in a nursing home was fatally shot with a bean bag gun when he resisted efforts by the police to take him to the hospital."
  • "The defendants... are members of the police department and his town’s administration, but neither of them showed up to the hearing on Friday...The defendants were reportedly found in a coffee shop near the courthouse on Friday during the hearing, so it is unclear why they weren’t able to make the scheduled proceedings."
  • 'The case against a Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper who was fired last year for “gross misconduct” has been dismissed.'
  • Selective enforcement of "law" is the definition of tyranny.
  • But cops are our friends! They would never obey orders to confiscate guns from peaceable citizens!
  • "Of all the dead puppy, wrong-house raid, handcuffed-and-proned subject shooting, shoot yourself demonstrating your expertise and respect-ma-authoritah skateboarder beatdown cop stories that ever spiked this old man’s blood pressure...."
    POLICE SHOULD NOT EXIST. Their creation may be the greatest mistake in human history.

    Your What the Monkey F*** o' the Day: "Apparently so many people have lost their minds that the rest of us simply aren’t startled."

    Just the other day I was calling pro-Democrat "feminists" insane - AND I WAS RIGHT, AGAIN.

    According to the latest CMP email alert, they're running out of Garands. Empty shelves and backorder lists in the thousands. THANK YOU TUCSON TOM 8-(

    [thought=RANDom] Rand Paul... is not perfect. But he is the VERY LAST CHANCE for the Republican party to retain any legitimacy. If he is not their nominee for the 2016 Presidential race (if we even have "elections" anymore...), the GOP is dead. Followed by the rest of us, rather less metaphorically.

    So I'm listening to the Robert Zimmerman interview last night. Not long ago Thomas Sowell said, "I am so old that I can remember when most of the people promoting race hate were white." And now there are increasing reports of BLACK mobs randomly attacking innocent whites BECAUSE they are white. But that's not a "hate crime"? (Okay one of the linked examples supposedly is but that itself is man-bites-dog.) Nor any crime at all apparently, judging by the scowling, foot-dragging reluctance to arrest and prosecute the attackers and the widespread failure to report such incidents. How long until we're like Britain, where a homeowner can be prosecuted for defending himself against home invasion and his attackers can sue him?

    And so many sheeple don't WANT to know. Blissfully-ignorantly swiping their EBTs and heiling Obama and calling anyone who tries to raise the alarm "racist".

    The cities are going to burn. GET OUT OF THEM.

    Codrea asks The Question: "...[W]hat good are armed cops if, when actual dangerous criminals appear, their overriding instinct is to hide so they don’t get hurt?" Which is exactly what we saw at Columbine. They think their pensions are worth more than our lives, and they think THEY'RE the GOOD guys. "...[T]here is a war on self defense."


  • Example: Have all the paperwork in order, behave in a peaceable manner while exercising Constitutionally-enumerated human rights, and still get robbed and kidnapped at gunpoint. Why should we obey any "law" which can be ignored on any thug's whim?
  • Example: They want to search everything, all the time, without warrant or cause, but can't stand to have their own pictures taken by the people whose taxes pay their obviously-excessive salaries.
  • Example: "It wasn't until he actually charged the police officers that he was fired upon - apparently him stabbing his ex wasn't enough to get them to fire. He had to actually threaten *them* with the knife before they took action." "Protect and Serve" who?
  • Example: "A man whom deputies shot early Saturday as he tried to retrieve a cigarette from his mother's car still hasn't received any answers on why he was barraged with gunfire."


    Why are so many women lining up to be sex slaves? Is this what the feminazis call "empowerment"?

    Their Minds Don't Work Right, Chapter MMMDCXCIV. And these cretins presume to judge us.

    If I won the lottery tomorrow, I would not go out and buy a brand new car.

    Because it's not paranoia.

    TSA misconduct cases grew 26% in three years - well duh.

    I've told you, if the stuff weren't illegal it wouldn't be worth billions and people wouldn't be slaughtering each other over it. -Remember Key Largo? "We're gonna bring back Prohibition." CUI F***ING BONO FOR F***'S SAKE

    Not long ago I postulated the Labor Revolution. As my screennamesake said, "The boisterous sea of liberty is never without a wave." He also said, "Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty." The dodo and the buggy-whip-maker were evolutionary dead-ends which did not deserve to survive.

    California.... I really don't need to say anything more, do I?

    Likewise... Piers Morgan. Evidently fully invested in Newspeak and pretending to be astoundingly unaware of Britain's skyrocketing crime rates since the enactment of their firearm prohibitions.

    I keep telling you, they hate us and want us to die.

    "Remember, these are the NSA training documents for the query system that contradict the Director of the NSA. It appears that Gen. Alexander is either unaware of what his Agency is doing or is willfully mis-representing what his Agency does to the American public."

    "The belief that they can make people... better."

    We oppose background checks because every such scheme results in registration. We oppose registration for reasons which should be obvious to anyone who is not a sadistic pervert with genocidal tendencies.

  • "Court Staffer Fired for Helping Wrongfully Convicted Man." And that's all you need to know about our "justice" system.
  • "The doors flew open, and the lights were on me. They drew their guns down, and they just attacked me. And they threw me on the floor, and they started stomping my face in...."
  • "It's far from clear to us why an armored vehicle would be necessary to address what are generally, by and large, non-violent movements that in fact provide little or no threat to the security of our state...."
  • "Hicks, 51, was arrested in May 2012 after veering off Interstate 275 in Tampa. He was booked into jail without a medical screening.... More than a full day passed... before he was taken to Tampa General Hospital and immediately diagnosed with a severe ischemic stroke. He slipped into a coma and died months later." That reminds me of something: "...[A]nd if death results... may be sentenced to death."
  • "A Los Angeles police officer charged in May with luring two young girls to his home pleaded no contest today to sexually molesting one girl and attempting to molest the second child, the District Attorney’s Office announced."
  • "Abrogating your rights = safeguarding them." "Protect and Serve" WHO?
  • They like to hurt people. That's why they become cops.
