The World Sucks

No, seriously, massive vote fraud.

It's bad enough we have to beg some bureaucrat bigot's permission to get a Federal Firearms License to sell a Constitutionally-enumerated product which is then registered in a blatantly illegal government database. Illinois wants you to beg their permission too.

While the Usurper wants to put tracking chips in guns owned by everyone who isn't hurting people.

And the gold-and-Nike-wearing, Cadillac-driving, EBT-swiping Obama-voters will STILL slaughter each other by the hundreds in Chicago AND HOW WILL THAT BE MY FAULT?

A while back I described Australia as an evil place where self-defense is outlawed and criminals are protected and the place where Britain used to be is the same.


In the news has been the sociopathic bureaucrats of Veterans Affairs arbitrarily stripping veterans of their natural human right to keep and bear arms without even the pretense of due process. North Carolina wants to do the same to anyone on Social Security. -Which unsustainable pyramid scheme should not exist either of course.

The other day I said the brainwashed victims of government schools, and of "higher" "education", will never make it in the real world. Timely Visual Aid.

Someone who has been there and done that contemplates the Bug-Out Bag.

A while back some anti-self-defense pervert suggested that old people are not competent to defend themselves. Michael G. sends the Sit Down and Shut Up, Chapter MMMMDCC. Some of the people I was shooting with yesterday are about that age too. They were doing okay.

Speaking of, trying to work on the videos. A few years ago I got a cheap Funai camera, one of those casual-use things about the size of a cellphone. It has an internal battery charged by USB. I charged it the night before, and it didn't last the whole match. Those things do eventually wear out.... The Funai has been used as HatCam!!! but I couldn't find the HatCam!!! hat in the hovel before match time. In the Funai's defense I was leaving it running for a half-hour or so at a time while I was off loading magazines and doing walkthroughs and resetting targets and proving my 1911's sear wasn't broken.... But if you're shopping for cameras, whenever possible get one that uses conventional batteries you can carry spares of.

Hm, mining the internets, I get the impression Millicent's 10+1 capacity might put her in a different division - not that the matches I attend are official. But I still have the +4 tube from Saint John, which has the same threads, which would result in 9+1. Yyyeah I'm'a change that now, otherwise I'll be in Open division against a bunch of electronics and compensators. -Huh, the spring that came with the +4 is much longer than the spring which came with the +5. So I'll use the latter and not fight it as much. Around YouTube I've seen people recommending chopping such springs as they are often far longer than necessary from the factory. Now Millicent's overall length is reduced by four inches, she's lighter, her balance is notably improved, and... she's actually eight-plus-one now. Fine whatever, I still have the other one, and maybe I could squeak into the Production division this way.

And I still have the regular magazine cap and original 28" vent-rib factory-full-choke barrel so I can change her back to duck-hunting guise in a couple minutes.

Pro tip: Cheap dollar-store strap-wrench for tightening and removing the tube extension. I've seen those things work themselves off during a run. Into the range bag.

...Speaking of videos, MSPaint only allowed three Undos. Linux KolourPaint allows... more. That speeds things up, not having to dump and reload a template file after tediously adding all those colored lines. Linux is looking better all the time. F*** Microsoft and f*** their overpriced Orwellian spyware and f*** Bill Gates.

But now I have to learn how to use the OpenShot video editor.... How the f*** do I record my voiceovers? Oh, Audacity, another free-for-the-downloading Linux application.

Aaaand OpenShot keeps crashing. >:-[

The World Sucks

"Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them...."

Project Gunwalker....

Sink the Island, Chapter MMMMDCCI. Mud huts and plague.

"Tolerant" and "inclusive".

  • "What the government did to Randy Weaver and his family and what they did at Waco are why I purchased my first gun...."
  • To which dot connect the death of due process in Occupied Connecticut and Occupied California. There is no "law" police would not enforce and no order they would not obey.
  • Any cop who tries to not be a door-kicking puppy-shooting thief-with-a-badge is driven out and destroyed by his "Brothers in Blue".
  • YET ANOTHER VIOLENT ARMED HOME-INVASION GANG AT THE WRONG ADDRESS. Explain to me why every one of those monsters should not have been executed in self-defense by their victims. Anything coming through your door without your permission is there to harm you and DESERVES TO DIE.

    TARGET STORES STOCK DROPS AFTER PERVERTS-IN-RESTROOMS POLICY. Looky, it's no one else's business what you do or what you do it with in private. It is other people's business when you force those behaviors on other people, especially at the point of a government gun. Anyone who's been paying attention should have been boycotting them already.

    Speaking of defending children, think about the kind of perverted monsters who don't want them able to defend themselves. -Now watch the poor kid get expelled from government school and forced at government gunpoint to take government drugs....

    Yet another affordable AR trigger. $igh, various things have already eated awl teh munnies I didn't spend on taxes.

    A while back I wrote about personal air transport. FASTER PLEASE

    Not unrelated, here is the I'm-Sorry-I-Can't-Hear-You-Over-The-Sound-Of-How-Awesome-I-Am o' the Day. Let's also remember that Yeager was a double ace against the Nazis, in the middle of which he was shot down and hung out with the French Resistance blowing up railroads.

    OpenShot is still a little finicky, but it's not crashing, for the moment (which moment has passed... I can see how it would work if it would, you know, work - rebooting after a while seems to help). Here's a screenshot of a video I was editing with Cyberlink PowerDirector, before Windows barfed all over my system for The Last Time and I switched entirely to Linux Mint:

    See all that white stuff at the lower right? That's the on-screen round counter, which I created using the subtitle function, tediously chopping and editing on specific frames as muzzle events appeared. That's going to be more difficult in the current incarnation of OpenShot, so I'm skipping it until I learn more. Hopefully the product will continue to be improved. (Or maybe I just did learn more....) Meanwhile here's a screenshot of OpenShot, with the first part of the video, containing the opening still images and voiceovers:

    There are so many components in there I suspect that may be contributing to OpenShot's instability, so I'm chopping the whole production into sub-productions, then stitching those together when each chunk is finished. Anyway it does work, if not as powerfully as PowerDirector, and it's free, and it's Not Windows.

    The World Sucks

    Think about the perverts who don't want your daughter able to defend herself.

    Keep sending prayers and/or money to a true champion of our Cause.

    Col. Kratman's latest column continues examining immigrants contributing to society. "And if you don't think the UN, or the EU if it's still in existence by then, won't demand to oversee elections held in the Southwest to ensure the right outcome... well, you haven't been paying attention." (Always read the footnotes and comments, or you'd miss things like the Badass o' the Day.)

    Speaking of immigrants contributing to society. And how does that make me "racist"?

    What's the definition of treason in the place where Britain used to be? Because I'm pretty sure the new Labour Party leader qualifies.

    Anti-self-defense bigots Bloomberg and company attack Tennessee. It really is like they want another massacre.

    "I never thought I would be punished for speaking up. I never thought that I would be punished for doing the right thing." Well that's what government schools do. They were already that way when I dropped out thirty-six years ago and they've only gotten worse. School bullying is a result of the government running the schools.

    "Progressives project their own grotesque acts onto others." (..."Stop making me like Trump"....)

    Wasn't I saying just yesterday? "This is not about respecting the right of consenting adults to pursue private happiness in the manner of their choosing. This is about indoctrinating and manipulating children."

    Which segues to:

  • Imagine a world where parents would be punished by the government for protecting their children from sexual predators. Is this why you became a cop? "Protect and Serve" WHO?
  • "The cop who arrested Rosa Parks said," according to [Sheriff Richard] Mack, "'The law is the law.' The officers at Nuremberg said the same thing, 'We were just following orders.'" What "law" would you not enforce? What order would you not obey?
  • Remember, peasant, ONLY POLICE CAN BE TRUSTED WITH GUNS. Why is this monster with a record of homicidal irresponsibility, if not outright murderous impulses, not in a cage or a coffin instead of his victims? Why are our taxes paying this parasite one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year to MURDER AN UNARMED HOMELESS MAN AND SHOOT AT A BABY'S CRIB?

    Now, do I have to vote Libertarian again like I did against Romneycare,

    EBT-swiping preciouslittlesnowflakes' heads explode?
    Buy ammo, folks. And learn to handload. And more important,
    get in shape and get some practice.
    Appleseed would be a good place to start.
    You're not as good with that thing as you think you are.

    Aaaaand Goebbels shifts into high gear.

    Tell me again about Obama's economic legacy.

    In Georgia, a RINO weakling gives in to bigots and anti-self-defense perverts. Or maybe Bloomberg simply bought him. Speaking of buying, tell me again what I'm getting for my $500 Life Membership.

    Speaking of Bloomberg, Battleground Nevada. Pitch in.

    In the place where Britain used to be, this man is about to find himself in Room 101.

    Next door in Denmark, "green" "energy" at government gunpoint.

    "The members of the American Anthropological Association are busy voting on a boycott of Israeli academic institutions" and how can that not be antisemitic?

    Speaking of organized and official bigotry, discrimination and racism, right-wing PAC campaigns to have non-white people stop running for political officeOH. WAIT. Do you want backlash? Because this is how you get backlash.

    FAKE. "HATE". "CRIMES". Because it pays. But that's not something we should worry about... right?

  • "Smart guns" were originally imagined for police use, to prevent police from being shot with their own weapon. So why is it the government wants to force them on everyone but the police? Why is that?
  • Never fill out the Form 4473. Those things will get you murdered.
  • Tell me again how "law enforcement supports the Second Amendment". Look me in the eye, PIG.
  • "As the Pierces faced theft charges for a crime they didn't commit... [Clayton County, GA] Officer [Grant] Kidd tried to shake them down for money to make the charges go away." CAN WE START EXECUTING THESE FILTHY PREDATORS-WITH-BADGES NOW?

    Please continue sending prayers and/or money to Michael Vanderboegh, who has actually done more for the cause than any ten of the rest of us.


    While the GOP remains indistinguishable from the enemy. Both ends of the stick are dirty.

    "Tolerant" and "inclusive" in Michigan.

    Speaking of "tolerance", German patriots object to the invasion of their country by Muslim terrorists and the "tolerant", "inclusive" crowd publicizes their home addresses so the Muslim terrorists can find and murder them. And their government is on whose side? "...[P]olice have raided apartments in Berlin for the act of merely questioning the migrant crisis on social media."

    Blood Libel. They really don't see us as human beings. They really believe in eee-vill gun rays casting dominion over our soooouuullls.

    Speaking of not seeing people as human beings, "U.S. EPA caused this entire disaster...."

    Just yesterday Georgia governor Nathan Deal vetoed a bill that would have stopped violating the natural human right of self defense and as if on cue. Blood on your hands, RINO.

    Tell me again who's pushing grandma off the cliff. Just five days ago I was in competition with several people that age and they can handle guns just fine.

    Which is probably what the sociopaths at Social Security are afraid of. Deep inside, they know they're guilty of crimes against humanity, no matter how much they brag about being heroic public servants.

    Bears repeating: Everywhere else in the world, poor people starve or resort to cannibalism. In America, POOR PEOPLE GET FAT. Off other people's taxes....

    Which segues to:

  • Your tax dollars at work, stealing your iPads, molesting your children, and making you miss your flight too. Why are decent human beings not rioting and tearing these predatory parasites limb from limb?
  • When I see a cop, I see a violent sociopath who thinks laws are only for enforcing, not for obeying.
  • In support of which, "...[N]o arrest was made.... Officers did not administer field sobriety tests...." But us peasants need police to protect us from combative, trespassing drunks with guns.
  • When I see a cop, I see a sadistic pervert who likes to hurt things. Which we have seen before.
  • Let me get this straight: The government won't call actual criminals "criminals" because it might hurt their feelings but if I try to use the internet without being spied on by the latter-day Gestapo I'M A "CRIMINAL"? ...Some thug who supplies multiple weapons to Chicago gangs gets plea-bargained to probation, but a widow who tries to liquidate her dead husband's deer rifle to pay for the kids' braces is a "dangerous gun criminal" who needs to be taken "off the street" and thrown in jail for ten years? This is the system they keep telling us to "work within". Anyone who is a part of that system is the real criminal and deserves the Nuremberg Treatment.

    Remember, peasant, private citizens using personal firearms to defend themselves is a paranoid fantasy that never happens.

    Discovering more features in OpenShot, more powerful than it looks at first. And it's free and it's not Windows. Now if only it would stop crashing. It seems like, after a certain and perhaps-not-scientifically-definable number of cuts and track-swaps and media objects, it starts crashing every time I save the project, or after I make a change and try to move the slider. As I type it's somewhat stable but sluggish. (The last bit, in fairness, may be because the rebuilt tower (remember it blew up real good several moons back) is using the motherboard's built-in video processors as opposed to a more powerful (and expensive) one.) But I'm getting some editing done. Stage Two should be online by this weekend.

    You know, if you have a sign in front of your office
    which says what time the office

    it is to be expected
    that your office

    Not more than half a bloody hour later.
    I hate this place.
    It feels like I'm the last man in town
    who works for a living.

    This is both exciting and depressing. Personal air transport gets ever closer - and this maker is actively seeking sales to an increasingly oppressive government who will use their products against me and all my friends.

    Speaking of oppressive governments, DOWN GOES ENGLAND. How long until the Bobbies stand by watching while synagogues burn, or even taser a rabbi for trying to put out the fire? You remember I predicted that.

    Speaking of things I predicted, government background checks for journalists. "What? Suddenly the lamestream muddia doesn't like background checks to exercise a Constitutionally-protected right? I can hardly wait for the Journalism License, and bans on hi-cap word processors."

    What's Wrong With America, Chapter MMMMDCCV.

    And now Oregon State University Will Force Incoming Students to Take 'Social Justice Training'. DON'T GO TO COLLEGE.

    A psychotic is someone who can't tell reality from fantasy. The nation is in the hands of psychotics.

    For further example, at Veterans Affairs, a convicted credit card fraudster is now in charge of government credit cards for veterans' prosthetics. It really is on purpose.

    SPACEX DOES IT AGAIN. From even higher and even faster than ever before. NA$A CAN'T DO THAT. GOVERNMENT CAN'T DO THAT AT TEN TIMES THE PRICE. "...[T]he transformation of a NASA program into boring means a loss of public interest and very likely a program cut; a transformation of a private program into boring means economic success and increased profits and utilization." And that is the way it should be.

    Continuing to learn OpenShot. It does seem that the program becomes unstable as more components are added to the timeline. My strategy of chopping the video into sub-productions is working - when I start a new one, especially without using anything from the previous one so there are no Undos in the buffer either, it starts out quite stable and loses that stability as the work progresses. Rebooting seems no longer necessary, just chopping the work up into smaller bits. But it's still free and it's still not Windows, and some of the controls might even be more intuitive than PowerDirector. Stage Two video is online.

    Remember when Hillary said "It takes a village"?

    And the GOP is functionally and morally indistinguishable.

    I'm not calling this Lighter: Michael G. sends, "I don't want to discourage anti-gun people from actually checking their assumptions, but the whole tone of this article sounding like Jane Goodall going to live with the chimps or David Brooks mingling with the denizens of flyover country is grating." And she hasn't changed her views on firearms, meaning she's just fine with people who want to steal them from us and murder us if we resist.

    Aaaaaand burn the schools. Retroactively. By a decade or three.

    We should also hang the bureaucrats by the neck until dead. Pretty much all of them.

    "...[M]ost Immigrants go straight to the welfare rolls." And how does that make me "racist"?

    Speaking of immigrants, Muslims throw stones at Catholics in France. And how does that make me "Islamophobic"?

  • So at New Year's, Muslim immigrants gang-assaulted German women in Cologne. The German police covered it up and now the German government is persecuting the German citizens who exposed the coverup.
  • The exact same thing is happening right next door in Austria. Do you want another fuhrer? Because this is how you get another Fuhrer.

    Remember, peasant, private citizens using personal firearms to defend themselves is a paranoid fantasy that never happens.

    Michael G. sends the Blood Libel o' the Day. But they call us "Nazis". Oh hey look, the director of the film was interviewed by Bill Moyers of PBS as though he were a legitimate historian and "a respected member of the community". What a coincidence.

    Speaking of Germany, this is how they got a national socialist dictator last time - except the Muslims are actually doing what the Jews were libeled for.

    And Sweden too.

  • While down in Austria, remember how I predicted the London Bobbies would stand around watching while synagogues burned? Yeah. Like that. "Protect and Serve" WHO?
  • Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends, "Some truth in government at last, but Councilman Lander left out the second half: irritate you until you change, and send a SWAT team if you don't change." How about we get so irritated we kill all they send, then hunt down who sent them? Did they think that all the way through?

    Show, chat & show every Sunday 1100 and 1700PT. Though on the second show I'm getting tired of Mark Walters and Toomey-Manchin-Chamberlain-Quisling-Gottlieb on every damn week. And all the scolding government PSAs instead of actual commercials, and then the same three or four commercials for USCCA over and over again. Maybe if I streamed a different station? No, probably not.

    OpenShot actually skews the audio when I cut the .AVI files from my old Canon A580 camera. I'm having to chop the production into single clips so the offset doesn't add up. Doesn't seem as bad, though still present, with the .MOVs from the little Funai, or the .MP4s from the Oregon Scientific two-lens action camera. Anyway all match videos, such as they are, are online: Stage One, Stage Two, Stage Three, Stage Four, and awards & results. I forgot to put in a round-counter for my Stage Three and Four runs but if I tried it probably would have messed up the audio even worse.

    Now those are done, I'm'a try to install the Easyloader on Millicent. ...Whose magazine tube, around which the gas piston rings ride, is considerably pitted by decades of neglect, but she did fire and feed a full 10+1 rounds at the end of my only test session. Since then I've changed to the shorter tube giving 8+1 capacity, the same tube I was using on Saint John the M11. Replacement rubber O-rings are sold in 3-packs and can be ordered online from Wal-Mart - carry spares in the range bag. It should be remembered that the only thing the Model 1100 has in common with John Moses Browning is the first two digits of the model number.... The Easyloader is going to work, I see how, but there's some very annoying fit-and-try-ing required, with grunting-and-cursing to get things lined up for reassembly. Saint John Didn't Design That.

    Aaand I think I've got it. Now to get some speedloading practice with the dummy rounds. With Saint John the long-recoil Model 11, I switched hands like Miculek used to with revolvers, because I had to hold the carrier release button in, on the starboard side of the receiver. I got used to a load-four from belt caddies, with the strong hand. I've seen at least one YouTube video of someone doing it that way with the Easyloader-equipped 1100. Do I want to do it that way, or try the weak-hand reload, keeping the weapon in the strong hand and the butt on the shoulder? I'll find out. Aaaand I think I'll be sticking with the crossover and the strong hand, fine. It's not Jerry by-Gawd Miculek I'm expecting to go up against. Anyway the Easyloader is rather a pain to install but does, eventually, perform as advertised. Reloading a tube-fed shotgun is where 3-Gun matches are won and lost, and the Easyloader makes the Remington 1100/11-87 competitive.

    The most racially divisive president in American history calls us "racist".

    The psychotic bigots of Old Media really believe there's some smoke-filled back room at every NRA meeting or gun show where we deliberately supply weapons to criminals and help them plot their next massacre.

    Yesterday I made a connection between PBS' anti-self-defense perversion and National Socialist anti-semitic propaganda. There are other examples.

    Speaking of anti-semitism. And Orwell's Ministry of Truth.

    "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press"OH. WAIT.

    Speaking of discrimination against peaceable and innocent citizens who are acting in accordance with law, Cracker Barrel.

    And colleges of course.

    No, really. It is on purpose.

"Police say they've seen no signs of remorse from a federal police officer accused of a two-day shooting spree in a string of suburban parking lots in Maryland that left three people dead and three wounded." I remind you, "Most of the thousands of German killers returned to jobs with the police, their pre-war occupation."

    "Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them...."

    To which dot connect one killed, three wounded in Munich knife attack while shouting "Allahu Akbar". Gosh who could it be? What could be his motivation? It must be a Trump-voting evangelical Christian NRA member! THAT'S THE ONLY THING THAT MAKES SENSE!

    I keep telling you to think about the kind of people who don't want you able to defend your children, from them.


    To which Michael G. sends a dot to connect. Who's keeping blacks on the plantation?

    This guy. Indoctrinating people of his own color that they can never be successful on their own. "Stay on the farm, boy. Massa take care of you."

    Your Tax Dollars At Work for everyone but you.

    Tell me again how real socialism has never been tried.

    Tell me again how the Australian model is "common sense". We told them these exact things would happen and they called us liars.

    Bears repeating: 'Now that big media is feeling the indignity and insecurity of submitting their rights to the whims of an opaque and seemingly arbitrary bureaucratic screening process, we can only say, "Welcome to the club.... It serves you right."' We warned them and they called us "paranoid".

    It does serve them right to get the same treatment they've been demanding for us for decades. Old Media has no one to blame but themselves.


    It's not paranoia if they really do hate us and want to murder us all.

    Col. Kratman's latest column examines the difference between police and military. "Yes, this is, indeed, a suggestion that recent, fairly frequent, incidents of unwise, unnecessary, and inappropriate police use of deadly force means there is something wrong with our police, or something beginning to go wrong with our police, on the grand scale. Yes, this should scare you." But the current series is not for cop-bashing, it's predicting how our next civil war will start, how it won't be a "civil" war in either sense of the term, and whether we have the national and cultural spine to do anything about it. Don't forget the footnotes and comments, for things like '...[T]he lack of a union shield from politics and IA does wonders for convincing even someone whose natural preference is "speed, shock and violence of action" to use nonviolent means whenever possible.' But that's not what we have now, is it? And: "Because you f***ing moronic frog...."

    Which segues to:

  • What orders would you not obey?
  • Arlington, Virginia bans bookstoresOH. WAIT. Explain to me the legal, functional, and moral difference.
  • San Francisco police lose about a hundred guns a year and this was one of them but tell me again why my guns need to be registered. Tell me again how only police can be trusted with guns.
  • "Edward Mark Felix's story is complex, ranging from allegations of being directed to allow straw purchases similarly to methods revealed from Operation Fast and Furious, to claims of stolen guns, to being squeezed out of his store, to FFL renewal irregularities, to claims of having illegal tracking devices placed on his car, and more" but remember, peasant, work within the system.
  • "The disingenuous part of the gun amnesty is that it's not aimed at the criminals shooting up Surrey streets on a regular basis. It's aimed directly at the people who are NOT part of the problem: law-abiding firearm owners." As usual. "Protect and Serve" WHO? "When the head of the city's police force doesn't even know the law he's appointed to enforce, is it any wonder gun owners don't trust police on this issue?" Why should anyone trust any police on any issue?
  • When police at all levels are being fed bigotry as though it were legitimate intelligence and swallowing it all without question?
  • Why should anyone trust Congress either? When for generations they've been operating outside the oath they swore?
  • The Third Amendment isn't obsolete either, you jackbooted pigs. I'm amazed you thugs didn't murder that innocent citizen and burn his home to the ground after looting it. Oh wait- that's the agenda for next weekend. Isn't it?

I no longer regret quitting, when exhibition pilots are chosen more for the color of their skin than their actual qualifications, and when the newest aircraft is grounded with a software glitch. Yeah, a BSOD is just the thing to have in the middle of a dogfight, or when a platoon of Marines is cut off and needs close air support.

    Michael G. sends Jerry Pournelle's acceptance speech for the Robert A. Heinlein Memorial Award. ...I'm a little ambivalent. I stopped following Dr. Pournelle's blog a few years ago when he said government should have a monopoly on force, and here he's reminiscing about the Reagan-era government space program, as in taxes and bureaucrats. Still, authors like Heinlein, Pournelle, Niven, Poul Anderson, etc., create a sense of wonder and inspire humanity to explore. Pournelle then goes on to describe the vast resources waiting for us to claim them, and to usher in what I have called the Cheap Energy Age. It'll be expensive to get there, but once we, as in humanity, do, "expensive" will need redefining.

    In the place where Britain used to be, didn't they used to chop people's heads off and stick them on national monuments for treason?

  • Blood Libel o' the Day. "Law enforcement officials and the watchdog groups that track the self-styled 'patriot' groups call them anti-government extremists, militias, armed militants or even domestic terrorists. Some opponents of the largely white and rural groups have made fun by calling them 'Y'all Qaeda' or 'Vanilla ISIS.'" Dehumanizing an opponent is a precursor to genocide and that's not hyperbole when they're already shooting Our Kind in the back from ambush.
  • Nor is it hyperbole or paranoia when "If Citizens United is overturned, as Hillary wants, it would mean that the federal government can make it illegal to criticize Mrs. Clinton (or any other politician) in a movie, book, pamphlet, etc." There is no "law" police would not enforce and no order they would not obey.

    And the champion of our cause who exposed it looks toward the Other Side.

    It's not a paranoid conspiracy theory if "MAINSTREAM" MEDIA REALLY IS BLATANTLY LYING.

    Related, Michael G. sends dozens of protesters anti-self-defense bigots countering SEVENTY THOUSAND DECENT HUMAN BEINGS. But who gets the media attention...?

    A latter-day Joseph Goebbels, that's who. I've said before, these psychotic bigots really believe in eee-vill gun rays casting dominion over our soooouuullllssss.

    Said media also doesn't want you to know who is really hurting people. Tell me how many of that mob were members of the Republican party or the NRA.

    Remember when the "Environmental" "Protection" Agency murdered an entire river, then gave drinking water contaminated with fuel oil to the Indians thereabouts? At the time were allegations they did it on purpose to create a new Superfund site to rake in more tax money and those allegations seem to be valid.

    Nor is it paranoia if there really is demographic warfare leading to massive vote fraud.

    Self-destructive Jews Christians now? "If you're willing to sacrifice the safety and health of your wife or children to the evils of abuse, kidnapping, sexual predation or death, God isn't impressed with your fake morality."

    And that's not hyperbole or "Islamophobia" if Muslim terrorists are saying out loud, in so many words, that they will target "Gun Free Zones" for massacre.

    I've been implying that the military, disgusted with years or even generations of disrespect and abuse from the regime, will not follow orders to suppress the population. I could be wrong if the deliberate and methodical purge and ideological restructuring of the military is successful. But then, all the people who know how to fight will have left the services, and many of those will be on our side....

    Meanwhile in Occupied California, a whole new batch of Nuremberg Laws. Because they're so "Tolerant" and "Inclusive".

    MidWestReader observes: "Trump has chosen to speak aloud what the rest of us have known for decades. We are being forced into cutthroat wage competition against political prisoners in the poorest, most repressive nations on Earth, and those who promised it would bring us prosperity lied to us and knew they were lying. It's brought us poverty. It's also brought us a world in which the US government can't even declare war without asking the Chinese for permission, lest they sell off the US Treasury debt they hold, or, worse, stop selling us boots and uniforms, radios and spare parts, and a hundred other pieces of vital gear now uniformly of foreign manufacture, for our troops. It's easy to see why the transnational socialists who hate the idea of America as a major power, and who hate Western Civilization, and who hate working-class white men, would be enthusiastic about these things, but why are so-called 'conservatives' telling us that giving the Chinese Most Favored Nation status has been good for us? Wide-open borders are bringing in millions of diseased criminal 'refugees' to clog our prisons and welfare rolls and force our wages down and our taxes up. It is likewise easy to see why Hitlery and the Kenyan are enthusiastic about these things, but why are people who tell us that they're 'conservative' not moving Heaven and Earth to stop it? For eight years Republicans shrugged their shoulders and grumbled and said they couldn't do a thing about the Kenyan, Obama does what he wants when he wants and no one anywhere will tell him 'no.' But let Trump suggest that we have a social contract in this country, and the Republican Party can't get united against him fast enough." I still don't like or trust Trump and neither should anyone who's paying attention, but Hillary will get a lot of people murdered resisting her decrees, so I'm going to have to vote against her.

    MidWestReader also sends many more visual aids. Some of those, I want to print out and stick on the windshields of cars with Bernie or Hillary stickers as I go around town. And this one too.

  • For further example, a while back came news that the place where Britain used to be lumps ordinary peaceable gun owners into the same database as Islamic terrorists. It's not paranoia if the American state of Hawaii really is trying to do the exact same thing. "Protect and Serve" who?
  • Remember, peasant, police would never use your personal data for their personal reasons.

    Nor is it Godwin if "...[T]he authorities have warned that severe punishment - up to and including death by shooting - is in store for Jews who do not wear the yellow badge on back and front"OH. WAIT.

    For further example and bears repeating, National Public Radio took money to fabricate and suppress news to help Iran get nuclear weapons. And the EBT-swiping NPR-listening parasites with "I [heart] Obamacare" stickers on their cars call us "Kool-Aid drinkers".

    And there are more examples. (In the second, at the time I viewed it, it said "This Facebook post is no longer available. It may have been removed or the privacy settings of the post may have been changed.")

    Nor is it coincidence if they're throwing gasoline on the race-war fire.

    "A savage hate crime at the University of Iowa that sent shockwaves across campus turned out to be just another hoax".

    "Students at Indiana University-Bloomington recently went into panic mode at the sight of a Dominican friar, who they mistook for a Ku Klux Klan member." But remember folks, college students are smarter than you.

    Oh please burn the schools.


    Nor is it paranoia to warn against doctors acting as agents of that same state.

    There's nothing holding it up. Where will you be when the EBT cards stop working?

  • Lately, as I've pointed out the thugs-with-badges who belong in cages instead of their victims, I've been asking who would put them there - more of their own kind? "...[A]n officer accepting [an] application for a concealed carry permit in D.C. told [the applicant] outright that he'd been told by the city's Attorney General's office to ignore a recent court order overturning an old requirement that a permit receiver must have a 'good reason' to get his permit" and "...[T]he office of Karl Racine, the Washington, D.C. attorney general, has ordered D.C. government employees to ignore a court order from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia." Who do you call when the police are breaking the law?
  • "We think it's dangerous to single out somebody based on secret police information" but lists of peaceable gunowners is just fine?
  • "FBI had an informant living with two of the [9/11] terrorists" but veterans and Christians and NRA members and "climate change" are the greatest threats to national security?
  • Remember, peasant, police would never keep an American citizen in jail indefinitely on fabricated charges without bail. What order would police not obey?
  • Let me get this straight - peaceable citizens carrying the means to defend themselves are "dangerous criminals", but New York City decriminalizes peeing in the street, drinking alcohol out of a bag and littering"? "Protect and Serve" WHO?

    CMP Garands at Clark Rifles. Aaaaand that sucked. Bad lighting conditions and my eternal struggle to find (and afford) a spotting scope that actually works, means I have no idea what's happening downrange and can't make useful adjustments. And I need to add some sight-black to my range bag, because glare. Also I really blew my rapid-prone stage with a bad position, which is what I went to Appleseed to cure, sigh. At least I got them all on the paper, and inside scoring rings even, though one was cutting the 5 ring. I won't bother with target and scorecard photos. Score 385/2X of a possible 500, 77.0%, did not place in the top three of a field of twelve. I know it's not the rifle's fault, or the ammunition's. Next weekend is another such at Lone Oak, with proper target pits so someone else can show me where I'm hitting as I go along - if they have enough turnout to run the pits.

    After the match I fiddled with Precious and the Wolf 62gr steel-case stuff I bought a thousand of a few years back, to use up in 3-Gun where there's no time to gather brass between runs. And she was All. Over. The Paper. Part of that might be the short sight radius and my decade-plus-old glasses and my aging eyes. I'm going to need some real sit-down range-day time with a bunch of different loads to see what happens, and that's another $20, $igh, though Mr. E. invited me as his guest at Clark Rifles on Mondays or Fridays and that might be better.
