The World Sucks

MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD AND THAT'S JUST HOW SOME PEOPLE WANT IT.

Where will you be when the EBT cards stop working?

The next time you encounter someone who identifies as a socialist or says "I like socialists", understand you are dealing with a dangerously psychotic bigot who endorses destruction and mass murder.

Speaking of psychotic bigots, Michael G. sends the double-facepalm-burn-the-colleges o' the day. See also.

Many times I've linked examples of National Socialist genocide, eugenics, and euthanasia programs, for comparison to modern government policies or activist proposals and it's not Godwin if it really is happening now.

Speaking of the National Socialists, they would have hated the Internet and demanded that control of it be turned over to government bureaucrats. See visual aids below.

  • Codrea updates, with video, his column on New Jersey Thought Police.
  • I would by far rather deal with some shady corporations, with competitors I could take my business to, than a multitude of offices and swarms of officers harassing me and eating out my substance. Government makes everything worse forever.

    Which segues to,
    I'm watching Designated Survivor
    and wondering how long it will take them
    to blame the bombing on
    the NRA,
    Christians,
    white people,
    and me.
    And here's the Gripping Visual:

    And there's all these tax-eating sociopaths
    who don't recognize anyone
    outside the Beltway as a human being
    (portrayed by professional-liar sociopaths
    who don't recognize anyone outside
    Manhattan or Los Angeles as a human being)
    wailing about all the friends they've lost
    and I can't help thinking:

    The World Sucks

    It's the Jeffersonian and SMLE Fan Skype Show, Philosophy Edition!
    [4:02:57 PM] SMLE Fan: I'm not sure you're grokking my objections to designer children in the present time...given the relative rarity/difficulty/expense right now (right now, not the future) the number of people who want Barbie/Ken offspring will overwhelm those of us who want to eliminate various Bad Things...no objection to folks who want particular features in their kids, but only after serious stuff has been addressed first
    [4:03:15 PM] Jeffersonian: Rationing?
    [4:03:49 PM] SMLE Fan: rationing is the polite form of Abuse and Corruption, see US 2016
    [4:03:58 PM] Jeffersonian: How then?
    [4:04:10 PM] Jeffersonian: And yeah, who issues the ration books?
    [4:05:17 PM] SMLE Fan: exactly my point...and your point of workshops/labs springing up with the attendant driving down of prices and increasing access is valid...I suppose I'll have to grit mai teef while the idle rich abuse the process...
    [4:05:32 PM] Jeffersonian: and I'll have to grit what's left of mine....
    [4:05:38 PM] Jeffersonian: It seems like you're saying some people should not be allowed access to the procedure until other people have had it
    [4:06:50 PM] SMLE Fan: YES...eliminating dementia/arthritis/etc., especially for folks like us who possess +2.5-+4.0 SD above the IQ mean should have first crack at this
    [4:07:15 PM] Jeffersonian: Heinlein would have required people to solve a quadratic equation before voting
    [4:07:22 PM] Jeffersonian: I think I could still do that....
    [4:07:37 PM] SMLE Fan: FOIL= First, Outside, Inside, Last...that's the method, d00d
    [4:07:42 PM] Jeffersonian: sharp ambivalence
    [4:07:52 PM] Jeffersonian: saving the smart people first
    [4:07:58 PM] Jeffersonian: but who defines? Who enforces?
    [4:08:37 PM] Jeffersonian: one of Niven's Laws: F*S=k
    [4:08:45 PM] Jeffersonian: the product of liberty and security is a constant
    [4:08:52 PM] Jeffersonian: is it really cyclical?
    [4:09:09 PM] Jeffersonian: maybe it's a series of Hohmann transfers, on a graph
    [4:09:12 PM] Jeffersonian: a little more momentum outward each time
    [4:09:18 PM] Jeffersonian: each orbit requiring a swing through an authoritarian region of the socio-historical graph
    [4:09:38 PM] SMLE Fan: all sorts of ways: IQ tests, SAT results, which are both methods that do not rely on a college degree (which is far more about certification rather than an actual education)
    [4:09:52 PM] Jeffersonian: credentialism
    [4:09:58 PM] Jeffersonian: that's why we can't get jobs
    [4:10:03 PM] SMLE Fan: Perhaps Niven's Law along with a dollop of Heinlein's "Bad Luck"
    [4:10:15 PM] SMLE Fan: INDEED
    [4:10:25 PM] SMLE Fan: have had that prollem like forever
    [4:10:38 PM] Jeffersonian: hence my low-paying dead-end courier job
    [4:10:41 PM] Jeffersonian: glorified newspaper route
    [4:11:00 PM] SMLE Fan: and me scrounging around for computer repair/handyman jobs
    [4:11:48 PM] SMLE Fan: story of my life: "gee, you're really much smarter than I first thought, but I can't give you a raise"
    [4:13:51 PM] SMLE Fan: and then there's the undiluted "pleasure" of trying to explain a relatively simple thing to folks who can't grasp what I'm on about even if it was at gunpoint
    [4:14:15 PM] Jeffersonian: BTDT, got fired for it
    [4:14:27 PM] SMLE Fan: more times than I want to remember
    [4:15:49 PM] SMLE Fan: "Hey, I was looking at the computer system here, and I would like to suggest a few things that I can do after work hours to make it better" two weeks later, out the door
    [4:16:10 PM] Jeffersonian: YES
    [4:20:39 PM] SMLE Fan: Vox Day has posited that if there's a gap of 2SD IQ or more that communicating becomes nearly impossible
    [4:21:23 PM] SMLE Fan: that is, someone of 150IQ might as well be speaking Swahili to someone of 130 or less
    [4:27:15 PM] Jeffersonian: Mine was last officially measured at 164, more than 30 years ago
    [4:27:21 PM] Jeffersonian: I dropped out of jr. high a few months later

    "...Donald Trump represents multiple and potentially fatal risks. But Hillary Clinton is a certainty of disaster."

    A month ago was said, "People who make excuses for communism are just as disgusting as people who make excuses for the Nazis, and should be treated as such."

    MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD

    Explain to me, in small words, how what Trump opponents are doing in broad daylight is any different from what the Brownshirts did to the Jews.

    Hey remember when George W. Bush was a dangerous loose-cannon cowboy and Obama's "smart diplomacy" would save the world?

    Immigrants Contributing to Society. Will you still call me "racist" when they're throwing acid in your daughter's face?

  • Remember, peasant, only police can be trusted with guns. Chapter MMMMDCCCLV. And why am I never the one to find this stuff my taxes have already paid for?
  • They like to hurt people. That's why they become cops.
  • Never trust a cop of any kind.
  • "I wonder why people are assuming the robbers weren't real cops." The vast majority of police "work" consists of robbing peacable citizens, under made-up "laws", kidnapping them if they refuse to pay, and murdering them if they resist.
  • "'Equal Justice' my ass."
  • Also, FBI agreed to destroy laptops of Clinton aides with immunity deal. What's the FBI's motto again?
  • "Arbitrary arrest and arbitrary detention are the arrest or detention of an individual in a case in which there is no likelihood or evidence that they committed a crime against legal statute, or in which there has been no proper due process of law"LIKE THAT.
  • BUT THEY STILL GET UPSET WHEN WE CALL THEM GESTAPO.
  • "No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime... nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law"OH. WAIT.
  • WHAT ORDER WOULD YOU NOT OBEY?

    Immigrants. Contributing MASSIVE RESOURCE DRAIN and MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD and NUCLEAR TERRORISM to Society.

    And also yes actually stealing your jobs. That's why you incurred soul-crushing debt in college, so some subliterate EBT-swiping and-probably-racist parasite can steal the career you planned for.

    And speaking of stealing jobs. From veterans.

    Battleground Nevada, where Bloomberg is trying to buy bigotry against peaceable citizens.

    Col. Kratman's latest column tells another Army story. There is a reason military training needs to be harsh. The Col., who has been on both ends of the equation, is highly qualified to describe limits, upper and lower. Certainly infinitely more than I, who have never served. Don't forget the comments for more first-hand accounts.

    Michael G. sends the Staggering Ignorance of History o' the Day.

    Not unrelated, burn the colleges.

    And the government schools too.

    West Chicago bans the Constitutional equivalent of bookstores and churches, then tries to hide the government meeting about it so no one can complain.

    Museum refuses admission to black manOH. WAIT.

  • It's not paranoia if they really are saying out loud in an official capacity that they want to confiscate all guns.
  • And speaking of unstable bigots in black robes, it's not paranoia if they really are helping cover up treason.
  • It's not paranoia if they really are using police as the enforcement and intimidation arm of the Democrat party.
  • It's not paranoia if police really are lying about the most basic identifying characteristics of wanted violent criminals.
  • It's not paranoia if Wells Fargo, in the news for fabricating new accounts against their customers' will, is also collaborating with the kitten-stomping drug-gang-arming sociopaths of BATFE.
  • Leave your own child to die in a hot car, get tax-paid vacation. Years ago I rhetorically asked if cops abuse their own kids as much as they rob and rape and terrorize ours. Question answered. 'Barker was previously involved in an unrelated incident with Cheyenne that required her to go through the state Department of Human Services "so she could have her child back...."'
  • With such a constantly demonstrated tendency toward sociopathy among the law enforcement community, why do we even have police? If they are as or more likely to murder us and expect to get away with it? When I see a cop, of any kind, anywhere, under any circumstances, I see a monster. The invention of police may be the most terrible mistake in human history.

    Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert, suffers the tolerant inclusiveness o' the day.

  • Who do you call when the police are plotting to murder you?
  • Who do you call when the director of the FBI is bought and paid for?
  • In 2005 during Hurricane Katrina, authorities ordered people to evacuate their homes and then stole their property. In 2013 during flooding in Alberta, authorities ordered people to evacuate their homes and then stole their property. Now there's a hurricane hitting Florida and is anything going to be different? Police are organized crime.
  • All cops should be hung by the neck until dead. Look what's happened since we stopped doing it.

    "Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."

    Michael G. sends, "We tried that whole ban thing once. You know what happened during it? F***ing Columbine!" ("Many of you were ahead of me on this.... It doesn't work in high schools either.")

    Why can't you afford a home? Government. Get out of the way.

    Superstitious psychosis o' the day. Maybe they'll go back to sacrificing virgins....

    Not unrelated in a clinical sense, Europe's ivory-tower psychotics seek to protect racists by accusing their victims of racism.

    And the exact same thing right here at home.

    Remember a few months back when some racist genocidal bigot wanted us to "imagine a world without whiteness"? My response was "mud huts and plague". But hey let's bring more of them. Will you still call me "racist" when your children catch tuberculosis in kindergarten?

    Which segues to:

  • Here's a great idea: Let's invite millions of subliterate, disease-carrying, wife-beating third-world hatemongers into our country and give them badges and guns. What could possibly go wrong?
  • Because the native variety is so calm, mature, and self-controlled?
  • Hey remember how Prohibition was a bloody disaster that corrupted everything it touched and launched criminal organizations which still wield power to this day? Government would never be stupid enough to try that again... RIGHT?
  • Hey remember how the IRS was acting as a domestic terrorism arm of the Democrat party by selectively targeting conservative groups? After the news stories and Congressional hearings and class-action lawsuit they'd never do that again... RIGHT?
  • Remember, peasant, no one wants to take your guns.
  • BUT THEY STILL GET UPSET WHEN WE CALL THEM GESTAPO.

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

    "...Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knowingly armed radical Islamist terrorists in Libya." What kind of unquestioning subhuman monsters end up on her Secret Service detail? Knowing what she is?

    To which dot connect, the Bolo is a very large, artificially-intelligent armored fighting vehicle created as fiction by author Keith Laumer decades ago, and I've enjoyed the stories since I became a reader in my youth. One of my favorite modern authors, John Ringo, wrote one as a horror story. Blogbrother SMLE Fan observes they're on the way... but who programs them? Who's sitting in the bunker with the remote controls? The same kind of people who cover up serial murder and treason for Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama?

    "Green Energy" MY ASS

    DON'T GO TO COLLEGE

    In my fictional future history I postulated a world settled by Jewish separatists, "because everyone was trying to exterminate them again".

    IMMIGRANTS CONTRIBUTING TO SOCIETY WILL YOU STILL CALL ME "RACIST" WHEN IT'S YOUR HEAD THEY'RE CUTTING OFF FOR INTERNET VIDEO?

    "There's nothing these manipulators do that isn't fraudulent."

    By which I mean, Designated Survivor is shaping up to be a leftist statist collectivist conspiracy fantasy wherin the eee-vill Republican military Tea Party white people plotted to blow up Congress and blame it all on the poor innocent peace-loving Muslims. Who's writing this crap, Bill Ayers and Jeh Johnson? Could they possibly lay it on any thicker?

    And as if on cue. Which segues to:

  • "Only the police and military should have guns" bears-repeating visual-aid o' the day.
  • In Occupied California, it is "now" a "felony" for government prosecutors to conceal evidence from defense attorneys. Who's going to "prosecute" them?
  • So a couple years ago Yahoo had a half-billion customer accounts hacked and didn't tell anyone until last month. Comes now word Yahoo is collaborating with the regime to spy on their customers. Staggering incompetence is the least evil explanation.
  • "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"STOP RESISTING! STOP RESISTING!
  • What "law" would you not enforce?
  • What order would you not obey?

    It's not paranoia, or Godwin, if Hillary Clinton really is collaborating with a Nazi collaborator. I'm not a Trump supporter. I'm a Hitlery opposer.

    Who's keeping blacks on the plantation?

    But speaking of race relations, 13-year-old [BLACK] girl shoots two people at beauty parlor over hair extensions. IT IS NOT JOBHOLDING, TAXPAYING, REPUBLICAN, WHITE, NRA MEMBERS DOING OR CAUSING THESE THINGS.

    Remember, peasant, you're not paying "your" "fair" "share".

    Remember, peasant, opposing unrestricted immigration is "raaaacist".

    I've said before, whenever some "tolerant", "inclusive" "liberal" accuses Our Kind of a "hate crime", presume they are lying and fabricating evidence.

    Hey remember how the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991 and we survived the Cold War without a full nuclear exchangeWELL F***.

  • Prohibition FAIL but the enforcers insist on trying again, harder. (And I'm reminded that Designated Survivor is also portraying that silly old Fourth Amendment thingy as an obsolete inconvenience to be tossed aside For The Greater Good.) Remember the premise of the Liberator pistol. It doesn't have to be perfect, it doesn't even have to work for more than a few shots. It just has to work well enough to kill one of the occupation troops and take his tax-funded weapon.
  • To which dot connect "[Armed-home-invasion victim Tim] Holcomb said he was told that as long as he did not demand that a warrant be provided to enter the property or otherwise escalate the situation, authorities would file no criminal charges." "Mention the Constitution, and somebody is going to jail." What oath did you swear? What order would you not obey? HOW ABOUT WE END UP TREATING YOU LIKE YOU'VE BEEN TREATING US?

  • Police and military are not the same and every attempt to make them so ends in atrocity.
  • When I see a cop, any cop, I see yet another back-shooting murderer and a dozen more covering for their "Brothers in Blue". They all look the same to me.

    Michael G. sends the armed robbery on an industrial scale o' the day, observing, "Effectively stealing the wages of non government workers to pay the pensions of government workers." Isn't that the exact kind of thing the Founders started shooting over?

    Donald Trump says MSNBC "Has no right to exist"OH. WAIT.

    UN World Heritage Body rules Mecca isn't IslamicOH. WAIT.

    BURN THE COLLEGES and now I really want to dress as a Confederate Army officer for Halloween just to watch their heads explode. (Alas I can't afford the costume....)

    It's not paranoia if somebody really could have caused that SpaceX Falcon 9 pad explosion on purpose. NA$A has an armed security force and government monopolies can't stand competition....

    Gave up on Designated Survivor halfway through the fourth episode. It's nothing but a big-budget brainwashing exercise, a Democrat Party campaign ad for bashing white people and whitewashing Islamic terrorism. For f***'s sake the actor portraying one of the main characters is actually a former ("former"?) official tax-funded propagandist for Barack Hussein Obama. Remember that bit in V for Vendetta where the head of state says "I want everyone to remember why they need us"? Goebbels would be taking notes. Another light just went out. America is becoming a darker place every day.

    To which dot connect an exchange with a coworker this morning, who was complaining about rising health insurance costs. I noted how Obamacare is doing that to everyone and the coworker, swallowing the party line whole, instead blamed the insurance companies and stated that only with government-forced single-payer would these problems be solved.

    I've said before, anyone who claims to be both a football fan and a supporter of the Second Amendment needs to reexamine his priorities.

    Donald Trump accused of voter intimidationOH. WAIT.

    The other day it was racist terrorist gangs being portrayed as victims and defenders of the nation being portrayed as racist terrorists. Now it's fact-checkers twisting facts to accuse fact-sharers of twisting facts.

    A while back I asked if Obamacare or Hillary supporters really believed the psychotic genocidal nonsense they keep voting for. Thomas Sowell addresses the question.

    To which dot connect, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People complains about the horrible government schools and how black kids can't learn anything in them, then votes to keep those same kids in those same government schools and prohibit any alternative. And how does that make me "racist"?

    Col. Kratman's latest column examines these very things. "What about our children, though? How are they to tell when they're being fed a steady diet of lies? How are we to stop it?" I have a couple ideas about that, but under current conditions they cannot be implemented without widespread prerequisite blood and fire, and/or, as the Col. observes, "invoking Madame Guillotine".

    Just a couple weeks ago I wondered what kind of unquestioning sociopaths were on Hillary Clinton's Secret Service detail. It appears that any with a shred of humanity got the hell out while they could.

    Right-wing college protesters create campus "white zones", harrass minorities trying to passOH. WAIT.

    But they call us "racist".

    I reiterate, anyone who still supports Obamacare is either staggeringly ignorant, clinically insane, or deliberately evil.

    Col. Kratman's latest column examines the death of our republic. (Amazon refuses to release Kratman's first novel, A State of Disobedience, for free, but Baen has it.) "I would be delightfully surprised to find myself alive two years after the bitch takes office...." I spent money I shouldn't have today, on 90 rounds of M193-equivalent, conveniently packaged on chargers. Which can be reused several times you know, so when we're out doing that Red Dawn stuff and knock over a supply column and capture a few crates of whatever the enemy's issuing by then, and later we're holed up somewhere doing that Valley Forge stuff while waiting for something else to happen, we can repack the loose rounds on chargers for faster magazine loading when we'll eventually need it. Make bandoliers from blown-out jeans and the like.

    What are you doing to prepare?

"If you ever thought that elected officials, law enforcement or the national security apparatus was going to save you from this, you're naive and badly mistaken."

    But some people really believe Christianity is more dangerous than Islam. Which reminds me, here's another Tom Kratman novel available for free download.

  • Didn't I just say? The "laws" are wrong and THE ENFORCERS ARE EVIL.

Looky, I dig the OathKeepers, I've had them linked on my front page for years, but that's sounding a little naive. "Local news affiliates" are part of the problem and "local law enforcement" will obey any orders their paymasters give.

    Not unrelated, Battleground North Carolina. If you're there, are you helping?

    "The cold Civil War that [Michael Vanderboegh] talked about is growing hot, but only one side is fighting right now."

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends even the bookstores are in on it: "In the 'They call us evil' department, I have to get news of this from an Israeli newspaper because none of the local rags seem to care about this. And of course, the problem isn't that he hates Trump, it's just that he used a swastika that's the problem. If the bookstore owner had stuck to words, nobody would have even cared enough to show up. Rest assured, if I put up a 'Hillary=Stalin' sign in my yard, I'd have national news AND a SWAT team bashing in my door in about 30 seconds."

    Jacob then sends more on an item I linked a couple days ago: "And in the 'subjects not citizens' report, The Ridiculousness of New York's Airbnb Ban. The bottom line of oppressive regulations on things like AirBnB and Uber is that, according to our progressive friends, your property is not really yours to do with as you please. When people talk about 'leveling the playing field' and silly things like that, I like to point out that the global GDP is less than $10,000 per capita, and that if we really leveled the playing field, we'd all be living in tin shacks without water or electricity. But nobody ever listens to me. I'm just one of those right wing nut jobs." Speaking of Uber (which is now an enemy in the brainwashing camp), that reminds me of taxi (and other) companies colluding to drive out competition and buying government officials to make their quasi-monopolies "law".

    Colion Noir hits again: "If Chicago led the nation in gun violence, when they had a gun ban, what kind of buffoonish logic makes you think these Sesame Street 'common sense' gun control measures are gonna do anything to prevent the violence in the inner city?" It is NOT Republican NRA members shooting five hundred people a year in Chicago, and registering or banning or confiscating OUR guns ISN'T GOING TO STOP IT.

    IT WILL ALL COME CRASHING DOWN IF WE'RE LUCKY.

    Michael G. sends free speech in Kansas. Which, as a mostly "red" state with Constitutional Carry, as far from the border as possible, and with only 1.2% of the federal land ownership which gets ranchers shot in the back from ambush by government death squads here in Oregon, is currently at the top of my get-the-hell-out-of-this-horrible-place-before-it-murders-me list.

    The World Sucks

    From chat:
    Dean Kalifornia: Breaking news, Comey commited suicide tomorrow

    And the EBT-swiping Obamillary-voters don't want to know and call us liars for pointing it out.

    In my fictional future history I've postulated that the Terran branch of the Catholic Church was driven to extinction. Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "When the Obergefell decision came down, the pundits tried to reassure Christian and Jewish clergy that they'd never be forced to perform same sex marriages because of First Amendment protections on religious practice. How's that going to work out again? As an aside, a comment on the above story was 'I wonder if this super genius tough guy says the same thing about Islam?'"

  • The other day a cop show blamed Republican NRA members for mass shootings which are historically committed by Democrats and/or Muslims. Comes now word that the anti-self-defense perverts wrote the episode for them. Tell me again how "law enforcement supports the Second Amendment". Tell me again how "there's no conspiracy to take my guns".

    The police aren't coming to rescue you.
    That's not what police are for.
    ARE YOU PREPARED?

    The World Sucks

    MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD "It may be an understatement to say that we were alarmed to learn that at least one person in the State Board of Elections, the department that oversees all elections in North Carolina, was telling people that it was okay to commit voter fraud and actually instructing them how to do so by voting other people's ballots."

    WHAT IF
    IT'S NOT A
    PARANOID
    CONSPIRACY
    THEORY?

    To which Michael G. sends the Timely Visual Aid.

    White Republican NRA members go on shooting rampage in ChicagoOH. WAIT.

    "People who make excuses for communism are just as disgusting as people who make excuses for the Nazis, and should be treated as such."

    By which I also mean, how many times have I described Obamacare as armed robbery on an industrial scale?

    And speaking of psychotic fantasies with the force of "law".

    Yet again with the unaccountable sociopathic bureaucrats of Veterans Affairs denying natural human rights, as ennumerated in our Constitution, without due process of law. "We now treat our illegal immigrants with more respect and benefits than our own veterans."

    Not unrelated, many times I've asked WHO DEFINES "MENTAL HEALTH"?

    Many times I've observed that the envirofascists won't be happy until everyone but them is living in caves, wearing grass skirts, and dying of the common cold at age 40. Michael G. sends Their Own Words o' the Day. They call themselves "progressive"? They want us to "progress" back to a preindustrial lifestyle. Remember when nuclear power was going to be "too cheap to meter"? WHO PAINTED IT AS EVIL?

  • Remember, peasant, no one is above the law.
  • "Law" is whatever some unhinged bigot wishes it to be.
  • I have observed that most police "work" consists of ambushing and robbing peaceable citizens, under made-up "laws", at implied-or-actual government gunpoint, and the sadistic kleptomaniacal thugs keep proving me right. Thieves should be hung by the neck until dead no matter what costume they're wearing.
  • Remember, peasant, ONLY POLICE CAN BE TRUSTED WITH GUNS. She did it! She missed the barn broke ALL FOUR RULES AT THE SAME TIME!
  • WHAT ORDER WOULD YOU NOT OBEY?

    MidWestReader sends gear tips: "For anyone in need of/considering a need for simple inexpensive ammo carriers: I'm sure you've seen the $10 or less, sometimes much less, East German surplus four-cell AK mag carrier. I have discovered that if you take two cheap ($2.50 each currently) surplus PPSh41 slings and connect them end to end, the other ends can be connected to the belt loops on the back of the mag carrier, converting it into a perfectly serviceable four-cell mag carrier you can sling over your shoulder as you're grabbing the rifle to repel boarders. The cells are quite roomy, being made for 30 round AKM mags. I have not tried getting M16 mags into it but it seems to me, after poking at it a bit, that you might possibly get more than four in, though it might be tight, and they'd drop in further, due to the shorter length, so it might take a while to fish one out unless you taped a paracord loop to the bottom of each mag." [I'm suddenly reminded of the PMAG40.]
    "Supposedly one of the reasons the Israelis had for settling on 35 round mags for the Galil was that the 35 round Galil mag is a close match in shape and size for a 30 round AKM mag, and the Israelis have been for generations sitting on warehouses full of slightly used but perfectly serviceable Combloc web gear and/or locally manufactured (as in Egypt and Syria) copies thereof, in 'taken out of wrap and issued to someone who then immediately dropped it in the sand to lighten his load while running away' condition. The steel Galil mags drop right into the mag pouches and the Israelis have been for decades now issuing the captured web gear to reservists and militiamen, though now that the Israeli military has standardized everyone on refurbed M16A1s from Uncle Sugar, that may be coming to an end. Maybe they'll sell it off as surplus. I can't recall whether the South Africans are replacing their licensed Galil clone, but they've been selling off some web gear.
    "Speaking of IMI, you probably know about the IMI 5.56mm Mk. 262 clone, which they load with real-deal Sierra 77gr MatchKings."
    [I used to see them in Widener's emails.] "They've now introduced a version using 69gr MatchKings, for those folks who have rifles with 1:9" twist barrels."

    A while back I acquired a set of Green Blob Outdoors flip-up Picatinny sights for my AR. Note the pin on which the folding bit pivots. That pin walks out. I used a tool just like this to make one strike on each side of the base to gently peen the base and retain the pin, without being ugly - a lot like staking the screws on the bolt carrier gas key thingy. Contemplate what items you have with similar arrangements which might benefit from the same treatment.
