Col. Kratman's latest column examines Constitutional Amendments. "Oh, and a bayonet; mustn't ever forget the bayonet."
This is why I don't go to the movies anymore. I can wait for the DVD at the library.
Remember, peasant, there is no media bias and nobody wants to take your guns.
Remember, peasant, real socialism has NEVER BEEN TRIED.
However you feel about Trump you gotta admit he has a spine.

BURN THE COLLEGES
RIGHT DOWN TO THE GROUND
How is this psychotic bigotry not recognized as psychological child abuse?
Conflation and blood libel....
Likewise, Blood Libel in New Jersey, Where the Bill of Rights Goes to Die!tm
Government Makes Everything Worse Forever....
And I repeat, anyone who still supports Obamacare is ignorant, insane, or evil.
Immigrants Contributing to Society....
"People who make excuses for communism are just as disgusting as people who make excuses for the Nazis, and should be treated as such."
It's not paranoia if it can happen again.
Nor is it paranoia if there really is a concerted and deliberate effort to misinform everyone about everything.
I did see this but was probably too depressed by the impending death of the republic to make note of it until Michael G. sent a reminder of the Prohibition FAIL o' the Day. And there's always another way.
This should have been happening THIRTY F***ING YEARS AGO. There shoulda been a Trump Tower in LUNA CITY and another in MARSPORT and yet another on CERES.
And speaking of the future, Starship Troopers is one of the most influential science fiction novels ever written, on the recommended reading list of most of the United States military academies, influencing my own work (I've read it at least four times, I lost count, and there's a dead-tree copy in arm's reach as I type) and that of most of my favorite authors... and resulting in a movie whose producers were sued by the Prophet Heinlein's widow to get his name taken off the title. There is a reboot in the works... buuuuut it's just as likely to be screwed up all over again. Well, no one's marching me into the theater at bayonet-point and taping my eyelids open (yet...), I can wait for the library to get the DVD.
On this day seven years ago, a white, Christian, Republican, NRA member attacked a mosque, killing 13 and wounding 32OH. WAIT.
What if the Clinton family really are serial child-rapists?
THERE'S NOTHING HOLDING IT UP. Where will you be when the EBT cards stop working?
More guns. A lot more guns. And yet, less crime. How do the anti-self-defense perverts explain that?
And as if on cue. IT IS THE END TIMES! MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS REPORTING A DEFENSIVE GUN USE!
Last time I hit the library I got Weber's latest Honorverse, Shadow of Victory, and Williamson's latest Grainne, Angel Eyes. Weber, as usual, is cluttered, with a bazillionty characters whose backstories are twenty books long and that's a lot of work to read - I've already given up on his other two series, War Gods and Safehold. Fortunately I have an e-copy of it also, so I can read it at leisure, so I'm returning that and starting the Williamson, in which stuff can be expected to actually happen instead of being talked about for five pages representing a moment's internal reminisence. 9_9
The WWII-themed Allies vs. Axis match at Clark Rifles. Using my old VZ24, with Mojo Sights, a Timney trigger, handloads, and a big long bayonet I found at a show years ago. Here's the weapon:
Here's the course of fire, copied from the club newsletter:
And here's what that looked like. Shooters (eight total, better than last year) were assigned even-numbered lanes, and at 100 yards shot that number and the odd number to the left of it; thus I had #7 and #8:
For ammunition I had 47 rounds from last year, and 46 from the year before that, of the exact same recipe but of course made under different astrological signs so the point of impact might be different. Pretty sure I had zeroed the rifle for 100 yards with that load and it turned out I wasn't far wrong. Lighting conditions were poor, and then it started raining, so I could barely see through the spotting scope; also I really need new glasses and had actual physical discomfort trying to focus on even the dual-aperture Mojo Sights; additionally the B27 silhouette target has thin scoring lines that are impossible to see at these distances without optics and almost impossible under these conditions; therefore I only fired three sighters at 100 yards, guessed four supposedly-three-quarter-MOA clicks up, and fired three more at 200. When I hiked down to 100 to check the sighters I found:
Yeah, that's right, a scruffy-lookin' 70-plus-year-old rifle that may have fought on at least two sides in the war, with a dark and somewhat pitted bore and a counterbored muzzle, just shot minute-of-angle from the bench. Photo-effin'-graphic proof. I use Sierra bullets when I can afford them....
Meanwhile at 200 I found:
With these eyes I was just happy to be on the paper. Back at the firing line I threw on a little windage and decided to go up a total of 7 clicks.
Then into the scoring stages, the first of which was 10 rounds in 3 minutes, standing, at 200 yards. The Timney trigger really helps fight the flinches and my M1 could really use a little work in that area. Under the lighting conditions the spotting scope was approximately useless, and to save time we continued to the next stages - the same number and timing on the left target at 100 yards, then 10 rounds in 60 seconds on the right target at 100 yards from bench-and-sandbags, with one mandatory reload. The VZ24 is an almost-straight copy of the German K98k, and the 1898 Mauser family is The Definitive Bolt-Action Rifle, with a smooth, positive action, and stripper-clip loading superior to all competing designs except its own direct ancestors. Rapid fire and rapid reloading are not difficult with this weapon. The results were, at 100 yards left, 3 minutes standing:
100 yards right, 60 seconds bench:
And 200 yards, 3 minutes standing:
Somewhere along the way, peering through the spotting scope, I decided to turn down the elevation on the Mojo rear sight's zeroing screw. I reckon I turned it a little too much, and turned it back up again. Still, very respectable performance for such an old and heavily-used rifle and my ageing eyes. Czech craftsmanship. You can bet your life on it and so can your grandchildren. If I ever buy a new-in-box 9mm pistol it will probably be a genuine-as-opposed-to-the-many-copies-and-derivatives CZ75.
The final stage was three strings of five, rapid fire, all together in 100 seconds, five rounds on each of the three targets, requiring you to not only reload twice but also to adjust your sights with the clock running. Resulting in, 100 left:
One extra round was allowed to be fired at whichever target you chose to shoot last, and the lowest-scoring of the six was discarded for scoring. Nothing wrong with the rifle, nor my handloads neither. The final result was:
Placing me third overall and actually beating the legendary Mr. R. and his M1 Garand. I think the equally-legendary Mr. E. won? Can't recall, awaiting official results for this small local unofficial match. Although, for actual shooting, not counting the bonus points for the bayonet (which I was the only competitor to collect, for shooting the entire match with bayonet fixed), Mr. R. probably would have beat me by a comfortable margin.
Not a bad way to spend a cold wet morning. Now I have to buy more Sierra #2400 for next year's match.
If we all haven't been sent off for reeducation by then....
MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD
Michael G. sends the Burn the Colleges o' the Day. Where Due Process Goes to Die!tm
"I swear it's true, [Hillary Clinton] could murder a kitten and a puppy, or rape a 12-year-old, on live tv and they'd still insist it was all fake and she's our only hope."
Speaking of "hope" and "change", "My best hope? That I die outright instead of getting sick and incurring medical bills that will cause my wife to forfeit her home. How f***ed up is that?" Anyone who still supports Obamacare is ignorant, insane, or evil.
So yet another EBT-swiping racist thug gets righteously defended against and the parasite's parasitic parents call for the punishment of their spawn's victims. Do you want a race war? Because this is how you get a race war. "Their son died as a predator. He walked into a peaceable establishment and tried to make prey out of the employees there." Blogbrother SMLE Fan also observes: "...[A]s soon as everybody stops paying attention, we're gonna fire this mope so fast his head will spin."
Which segues to:
Many times I've described police as predators who view all of us as prey. Just the other day I linked a news item about the government revenuers spying on pet owners through their supermarket spending habits, to fabricate more opportunities for extortion and armed-robbery-in-costume. Now there's all this talk about cops getting assassinated. While hanging out with fellow shooters after the match yesterday it occurred to me that any one of Our Kind, with a century-old five-shot bolt action and iron sights, is far deadlier than any two or three EBT-swiping street thugs with Kalashnikovs and all the magazines they can carry - or any dozen uniformed sociopaths with tax-funded fully-automatic rifles and $600 electronic sights mounted backwards.
We haven't started killing cops... yet. Don't for a moment think we don't know how.
Show and chat every Sunday 1100PT.
So, splattering all over the gunternets, Springfield Armory (Inc.) introduces an AR. And it has a bayonet lug. But why haven't they had the guts to put the lug back on their M1A? Since Clinton scared them into taking it off 22 years ago?
SpaceX is back in business. And it's not paranoia if some people really don't like that.
There really is a concerted and deliberate effort to misinform everyone about everything.
And then setting anyone who disagrees on fire. IT'S NOT PARANOIA. THEY REALLY DO HATE US AND WANT US TO DIE AND ALL WE EVER WANTED WAS TO BE LEFT ALONE.
Speaking of people who view other people as domestic animals to be harvested.
Child-burning Palestinians file suit with child-raping UN bureaucrats to steal ancient Jewish artifacts. And what would they do with them?
Desert Hermit Joel has been living (somewhat) off the grid for a decade now. That's looking better all the time.
Seriously I would f***ing walk to Texas.
Yeah, tell me again how the military will obey the regime's orders to oppress us.
To which compare and contrast, Michael G. sends, Amazing how prosperity grows in the absence of government. Maybe we ought to give that a try.
Here is your Unbroken Badass o' the Day.
Maine has Constitutional Carry. Maine is at least occasionally pretending to try to combat massive welfare fraud. Maine almost killed their state income tax a couple years back. Maine withdraws from refrapefugee resettlement program. Those f***ing winters though.
Okeh, so, a New Product is the red dot front sight. Which I had figured out months ago.
One of my favorite new authors, whose name I've been mispronouncing, will be writing more.
[thought=random] I know there are sabots to use modern .429 or .451 bullets in .50 or .54 muzzleloading rifles, and even .38/.45, and to use .224-ish bullets in .308-ish rifles. Does anyone make a sabot to use a smaller bullet, like .357 or .308, in a .429 bore, like a .44 Magnum? 'Cause that might be pretty cool.
It's the Jeffersonian and SMLE Fan Skype Show, Election Edition!
[12:08:04 PM] SMLE Fan: Sigh. I went and voted. The only good thing I might have accomplished is that I voted against every single incumbent that I could. Bastards.
[3:52:21 PM] Jeffersonian: yeah
[3:52:51 PM] Jeffersonian: hopefully there's a wide groundswell of support for the F*** YOU party
[3:56:34 PM] SMLE Fan: we'll be seeing the results, or at least the start, in a coupla hours
[3:56:49 PM] Jeffersonian: no we won't
[3:57:07 PM] Jeffersonian: Old Media will stick their fingers in our ears and go LALALA YOU CAN'T HEAR THEM
[3:58:19 PM] SMLE Fan: I kinda miss cable right now: I would enjoy, should Trump pull this off, watching the shock, horror, and disbelief on the faces of our detatched and objective media
[3:58:44 PM] Jeffersonian: JUMP YOU F***ERS
[3:59:37 PM] SMLE Fan: and it's waaay past time that we insisted that all the ppl who claimed that they'd leave if Trump wins actually GTFO....and stay there
[3:59:52 PM] Jeffersonian: BOTH OF US HAVE BAYONETS
[4:00:20 PM] SMLE Fan: long, pointy, well-sharpened bayonets, you meant to type ;)
Michael G. sends the Stalinist Orwellian Chutzpah o' the Day, right here in Occupied Oregon. I dropped my ballot at the library today, making sure it went into the padlocked blue bin. I waited until now to give them less time to change or discard it. And I wore a red shirt. Not that I'm some enthusiastic supporter of Trump but f*** the other side more.
Which segues to Col. Kratman's latest column, which examines bloody civil war. In which I kind of expect to get killed. I just hope it's on a battlefield surrounded by the corpses of my enemies, instead of in a government cage.
Smart Guy Thomas Sowell sums it up.
Burn the colleges....
Michael G. sends word that the reactionless drive might actually work. Which wouldn't change the whole game, we still have to get out of this gravity well, but once we do....
But I still need to get the hell out of this horrible enemy-occupied state before it murders me.
And MV Shambling Wreck II's clutch is getting worse every day
and I can't afford to do anything about it.
Operating costs keep rising while
my weekly pay keeps falling.
That walls-closing-in feeling.
Speaking of psychotic.
Speaking of the walls closing in, here's the kind of thing we were voting against, again from Jacob N.: "India has voided its 500 and 1000 rupee bank notes, ending their legal tender status and giving a strict deadline to turn them in. There's no smoke screen with this one: by banning large denomination bank notes, they want to force people to use banks and end cash transactions, the better to tax and track what people do. This is an example of what many here want to do, when rumbles about ending the $100 come up periodically, it's all about control. Let's hope that our newly elected president puts a stop to such rumblings, but I'm not all that hopeful." Everything you have ever worked for can be rendered nonexistant with the stroke of a bureaucrat's pen.
By which I also mean, we can expect the Marxist-racist-in-chief to issue a swarm of executive orders royal decrees on his way out the door. Will Trump overturn them? Will he keep his promises? Well we know Hillary would have declared war on anyone who wanted to be left alone. We had nothing to lose by voting for Trump. BECAUSE F*** THE OTHER SIDE MORE.
We can also expect to be constantly lied to for the next four-to-eight years. Lemme tell ya, I'm a delivery driver, I hit Those Parts of Town early, there have been an INCREASING NUMBER of homeless people over the LAST eight years, I've seen them sleeping in doorways and lining up for the shelters throughout my work area.
"I'm not happy Trump won, but I'm ecstatic that Hillary lost."
The victory was not complete. The cold civil war continues.
"Of course, no mention was made of the violence orchestrated by Clinton's surrogates or the rioting and flag burning that followed the election by Clinton supporters. The losers are violent and destructive and they are not going away any time soon." You ever notice how it's always their side that riots, not ours? How it's always their side throwing a tantrum while ours goes back to work to fill their EBT cards with our taxes?
What happens when those cards stop working? Because the government ran out of MY TAXES to pay for THEIR FIFTY-INCH SCREENS AND FORTY-OUNCE MALT LIQUORS? The entire welfare system should not exist. There is far more fraud and abuse than genuine need. Unelected bureaucrats pile on regulations that make it impossible to work for one's own living, then force people to become dependent on that same government for handouts stolen at implied government gunpoint from the fewer and fewer people who are still productive.
And as if on cue, Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "I don't remember Our Side plotting and scheming nearly so much after our current chief executive was elected. Who is it whose response to political defeat is almost always violence? And they say WE are the dangerous wackos."
A psychotic is someone who can't tell fantasy from reality.
Oh look yet another white Republican NRA member shooting rampage in ChicagoNO IT REALLY ISN'T.
Williamson's Angeleyes does indeed have Stuff Happening, but there's a lot of jargon which readers who are not longtime science fiction enthusiasts will have difficulty grokking.
Speaking of stories, Aurora, parts 56 and 57, are online.
The only people
who deserve my taxes.
"No person shall... be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law"OH. WAIT.
Conservative business owner tells Hillary supporters to resignPRECEDENT SET.
Timely Visual Aids.
Will Trump keep his promises? If he keeps a fraction of them we'll still be better off.
I am, in this horrible place, surrounded by people who do not see me as human and want to murder me.
Yet another FAKE "hate" "crime".
For the next four-to-eight years, believe nothing you see, hear or read in Old Media.
I stopped reading XKCD a moon or two ago when he joined the cult of "global" "warming". And now he's gone full psychopath. Yeah, align yourself with the pathologically-lying traitor who is probably a serial murderer and possibly a serial child-rapist.
Everything is still getting worse all the time. PREPARE.
Col. Kratman posts a special election column.
Michael G. sends the Snark o' the Election.
FABBERS will CHANGE the WORLD. And that day comes ever closer.
Not unrelated, the next time some haughty EBT-swiping serial-murderer-voting America-hating veeegan harangues you about the Founders' inability to imagine modern firearms, smack them. Right in the face.
Genocide is not hyperbole.
Some people say "vigilante" like it's a bad thing.
Trump, like Linux, is looking better all the time.
"Eight years of this, accusing anyone who questioned any of 0's policies of racism, led us to where we are now." And then there are the multiple reports of pollsters hanging up on people who supported Trump, or didn't support Hillary, very deliberately giving a very false image of what was to come. No wonder the psychotics are freaking out, they were completely and deliberatately misled and have been for many years. They are not capable of understanding that they're the ones who are sick and wrong and the rest of us aren't.
Timely Visual Aid.
Hey look Bloody Civil War is still possible!
Show and chat every Sunday 1100PT. Got there late because
CMP Garands at Lone Oak. MV Shambling Wreck II barely made it across the river (gonna be unemployed any day now) and I carpooled with another shooter from there.
Only four shooters. :(
Best Ever Yet rapid-prone stage. :)
No video this time, I've already done plenty.
My own car is still wrecked,
the borrowed one is nearly dead,
insurance has completely screwed me,
costs keep going up,
my pay keeps slipping down,
I'm surrounded by bureaucrats on one side
who want to rob me at government gunpoint
and psychotic bigots on the other
who want to murder me for wanting to be left alone.
This position is untenable.
But I have nowhere to go,
and no means to get there.
I just want to live my own life
without ripping anyone off,
through welfare fraud or otherwise.
That appears to be impossible these days.
I've been trying for years,
and every one of them, I lose a little more ground.
There's not much left.
And speaking of psychotic bigots who want to murder me, remember how in the 1930s the Brownshirts mobbed Jewish businesses, intimidating business owners and customers and driving both away? That could never happen here... RIGHT?
And psychotic hypocrites also.
By which I mean the kind of moron who tries to outlaw the very tools they now expect to need. "If you haven’t completely alienated all of your pro-gun friends by blaming them for every mass murder that’s ever happened, now would be a great time to ask them to come shopping with you."
Just yesterday I said the psychotics had been deliberately misled for years.
But they call us violent bloodthirsty deranged nutcases.
Speaking of nutcases, politically-motivated psychological child abuse. What if one of Our Kind were saying and doing these things toward Hillary supporters?
Col. Kratman's latest column examines. The footnotes and comments add valuable context.
And there is still MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD.
Democrats are the party of corruption, oppression, vandalism, theft and hate.
But remember, peasant, work within the system.
By which I also mean "Getting the bureaucrats and politicians to change the regulations that stifle progress is probably a much bigger chore than designing a supersonic jet that’s actually commercially viable."
Which segues to, a couple-few years ago now I wrote: “Private charity has always been more efficient than government anyway. If someone wants to help the needy, they can send their own money, for which those charities are held accountable, instead of having some unaccountable government thug steal it from someone else. That is an evil vastly greater than letting the poor starve. We need only look at our own history for proof - government supplies rotting in warehouses, government funds evaporating under corruption and graft, the needy never getting a fraction of it, except when news cameras were present.” AND I WAS RIGHT, AGAIN.
But remember, peasant, you're not paying "your" "fair" "share".
Hey remember when Google's motto was "Don't be evil"?
My side isn't the one calling for the RAPE AND MURDER OF CHILDREN.
Will Trump keep his promises? We know Hillary would have declared war on us all.
And that's not hyperbole.
Not unrelated, GOPE housecleaning required in Tennessee.
The president of the University of Virginia has been asked to not quote the founder of the University of Virginia and also the founder of the Library of Congress and the author of the Declaration of Independence and the third elected President of the United States of America. Don't go to college.
By which I also mean Soviet-style censorship and KGB-style oppression at a university named after the man who wanted more restrictions on government power and more rights for the people.
Michael G. sends one small ray of light from the Oregon elections.
Not much left.
I wonder where the next
stab in the back will come from.
Even more politically-motivated psychological child abuse. From the same party that calls for the rape and murder of our children.
Burn the colleges for sanitary reasons.
White business owner boycotted for refusing to cater Obama eventOH. WAIT.
But they call us "racist".
"...[T]he philosophy of the left requires lies."
MV Shambling Wreck II's clutch
had worn out and the vehicle is no longer driveable.
I barely got it back to the hovel.
So now I'm just about completely f***ed.
This game sucks and
I don't want to play anymore.
Here is a test case for the Firearms Freedom Acts passed in several states. I'm not optimistic.
Tried to watch the first episode of Shooter last night. It starts with a diatribe about how horrible guns are, then segues to the provably false leftist-fantasy stereotype of drunken bloodthirty sadistic redneck hunters. I quit there.
Blogbrother SMLE Fan observes the rhyme of history. Yeah, World War Three! Remember when OBAMA was going to END THE WARS and BRING THE TROOPS HOME?
Remember when "Flanagan [Williams] was also once reprimanded by WDBJ editors for wearing an Obama campaign sticker on his jacket while reporting from an election booth in 2012, saying it 'demonstrated a basic lack of understanding of your role as an on-air journalist' and was a clear breach of impartiality rules"? Yeah. Like this.
My side isn't the one trying to bring back segregation.
And lest that be seen as hyperbole, the party of "tolerance" and "inclusiveness" is complete with Sturmabteilung and Hitlerjugend.
Michael G. sends the psychotically disconnected freak in black robes o' the day, right here in Occupied Oregon. "Suing the government is a common tactic among radical environmentalists who are actually working in concert with the government to expand its power." The insane punish the sane for not being insane.
Not unrelated, meanwhile at the Republican Establishment....
So there's all this talk about the ongoing hundred-year anniversary of the First World War, the botched resolution of which led to the Second, and in each case Americans had to intervene, spending blood and treasure to stop the Europeans from slaughtering each other. It looks like they want to reduce their continent to rubble a third time.
It's not paranoia.
They are out to get us.
Remember, peasant, private citizens using personal firearms to stop massacres or home invasions is a fantasy that never happens. Think about the sociopathic monsters who don't want you able to defend yourself.
Some people say "giant flaming meteor obliterating Los Angeles" like it's a bad thing.
IN FULL GOEBBELS MODE
Directly related, how many times have I said burn the government schools?
And comparing them to National Socialists is not hyperbole.
While the Marxist-racist-in-chief very deliberately fans the flames.
Eight years of that racist treasonous narcissistic usurper demonizing anyone who works for a living and none of us ever assassinated him. Which side is "tolerant" and which is full of murderous hate?
Immigrants Contributing to Society.
Meanwhile, the place where Britain used to be is ordered by eurofascist bureaucrats to lie about terrorism. Remember 76 years ago when there was a "Battle of Britain"? Which side won that again?
Speaking of the moral equivalency of different cultures, Michael G. sends graverobbers. Which culture is soulless and money-grubbing?
One of the most important works in all of science fiction might be adapted to screen and the first thought is "I wonder how they'll screw it up?"
Do you want a race war? Because this is how you get a race war. And the police "protected and served" who...? What are we paying you for?
You lying, sadistic, armed-robbing, wrong-door-kicking, puppy-shooting, serial-child-raping pigs are afraid of the street thugs we hired you to protect us from? The WHITE people haven't STARTED shooting at you YET.
This is me.
Except without the "team".
Mass psychosis and burn the government schools and the colleges too.
For further example, Nebraska school urges students not to fly American flags on their cars. Is that a government school? Under the Department of Education? Funded with taxes?
Hey look, SEIU making things worse for everyone else, again.
And speaking of making things worse, my side isn't the one blocking emergency services and vandalizing other people's property while endlessly spewing psychotic hate.
"He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance."
Censorship and discrimination at YouTube. In the early days I tried monetizing some of my videos but I don't recall ever getting any recoverable revenue from them, and instead got complaints in comments about Obama ads. Most of my videos I have backed up here so I can repost if necessary.
The same at Guinness. Old Media of every kind is rendering themselves less relevant every day. But the EBT-swiping O-Bern-Illary-voters REALLY BELIEVE them.
And as if on cue "Most Nazis didn’t understand what was happening when the tanks broke through to Berlin. The average Russian wasn’t prepared for the fall of the USSR." And the college students, Old Media talking-heads, and EBT-swipers with fifty-inch flatscreens are not capable of understanding why people who work for a living voted the F*** YOU ticket.
White Republican NRA members shoot each other over gym shoesNO. WE DON'T.
I get books from the library, or ebooks from the Almighty Internets, because I can't afford to buy books. There are more copies, with fewer holds, of Williamson's Angeleyes, than for Flint & Spoor's Castaway Odyssey (latest in the Boundary/Bemmie series), so I'm having to put the former aside to read the latter before I have to return it.
THERE'S NOTHING HOLDING IT UP AND HOW IS THAT MY FAULT?
University of Colorado calls Founding Fathers ‘terrorists,’ founding ideals a ‘fabrication’NO, REALLY.
Politically-based euthanasia. But they call us "Nazis".
Michael G. sends more disrespect of the military from the left. The military which the regime thinks will obey orders to oppress us "evil racists" on the right. At least the Marxist-racist-Usurper is finally on the way out and the unhinged-genocidal-bigot-in-a-pantsuit is not on the way in.... And as for Bernie, I already made my position clear.
MidWestReader sends technical report: "I think I have cured one problem, or if not cured, somewhat reduced it, with the stainless Ruger Mk. III. I removed the loaded chamber indicator and also, using instructions I found online--well. If you look at the top of a stock, unmodified magazine, you see a notch in the top of the feed lips, with sharp, 90 degree corners on the rear part. Apparently, depending on individual firearm tolerances, the magazines in a Mk. III can sit a little higher than they do in a Standard or Mk. II. This can interfere with the rearward motion and ejection of an extracted case. The case head hits those rear feed lips before it hits the ejector, which can result in all manner of fun things happening. Rounding off those corners carefully with a needle file seems to reduce this phenomenon greatly, if not eliminate it altogether." Or as Montgomery Scott once said, "The more they overthink the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain."
And range report: "This afternoon I ran through 200 rounds of three types of Federal ammo that had been especially prone to this problem and which some days have produced a malfunction rate of 10-15%: Federal Automatch lead solids, Federal 'American Eagle' copper plated hollowpoints, and Federal 'Champion' bulk pack. I had only two malfunctions, both ejection problems in which the extracted case failed to extract and remained inside the upper receiver, where it interfered with the feeding of the next round. This happened only twice in a total of 80 rounds of American Eagle, which was previously by far the worst offender and which consistently gave stovepipes and variations on that feeding problem as many as three times in a ten round magazine. Automatch gave no malfunctions and I finished a 525 round bulk pack of Champion with only one dud in the entire box, plus (in prior shooting sessions) one fired case that stuck hard on the chamber, upon which the extractor would not engage, which had to be driven out with a cleaning rod and a mallet. In this gun I have also had occasional problems with Winchester '555' bulk pack hollowpoints nose-diving and catching on the feed ramp, but I haven't seen those for years. It has also happened with Remington "Golden Bullet" bulk pack hollowpoints. I do not suppose anything I have done here will help that, but it shouldn't hurt either."
And then: "Oh. I just had another of those ideas. 'Tactical shooters! Increase the realism of your training by putting a pair of googly eyes on every target!' Do you think they'd sell?"
Speaking of technical reports, Ian McCollum's latest auction video examines the legend of the low-number Springfield and also the royalty situation with Mauser.
Also speaking of technical reports, Michael G. sends news of the electromagnetic drive (see also). I stopped reading Jerry Pournelle's blog, Chaos Manor, some time ago when he advocated a government monopoly on force, but Michael suggested I take another look. I guess I'll have to put him back in the blogtrawl.
Michael G. sends the psychotic gibberish o' the day.
Hey remember when people were accusing George W. Bush of stealing the election?
Oh, and "raaaaaaaaaaaacism" too.
Hey remember when peaceable business owners were ostracized and robbed at government gunpoint for exercising freedom of association?
And speaking of government gunpoint, government bureaucrats and ivory-tower elitists have ideas so good they have to be forced on people with all the power government can bear.
Hey, what if the Democrats really are the party of widespread serial child-rape? And OH LOOK A PERSON INVESTIGATING THE CLINTON FOUNDATION FOR LINKS TO CHILD SEX SLAVERY IS "FOUND" DEAD.
Buuuuut promise broken. Well, we're still better off with her not in power....
Disrupt classes and businesses and transportation and emergency services, destroy property, make death threats, all is excused in the name of "tolerance" and "inclusiveness" and "liberalism". Protest such actions and get expelled from college.
Col. Kratman's latest column examines secession. Some people contemplate a massive earthquake sending California sliding into the sea like it would be a bad thing.
Many times I've said such-and-such exploitation of space should have happened thirty years ago. The Prophet Heinlein said so. "A line is passed, a towing crew comes on board, and the booster pilot sacks in, having been on duty for little more than an hour and having actually worked about 15 minutes. For this, he gets paid in excess of $100 per minute—and is worth every cent of it.... The important thing is that the enormously expensive giant booster has been saved to lift another day. With proper maintenance, there's no reason why it should ever wear out. That is one reason why space travel will be relatively cheap in 1984."
"A firing squad? Christians are being beheaded in Mesopotamia by Islamists, and you’re pissy because you were told you are liars?"
Speaking of pathological delusions.
And while we're on that topic, gun control law has no effect on crime, network anchors baffled.
Occupied Nevada.... I won't be moving there.
"In a revealing statement, Rabbi Goldschmidt claims that the U.S. Elections were 'good' for the State of Israel but 'bad' for the Jews." The pain you feel behind your eyes is brain cells being murdered by astonishing self-destructive stupidity.
And they wonder why more of them are getting shot.
Armed Forces allowed to be armed. Rather overdue, and a symptom of the last eight years of our great national illness that it's even an issue. Why should those who swore an oath to defend our rights be denied the exercise of those very rights? Explain it in small words.
Speaking of the restoration of natural human rights as enumerated in our Constitution, West Virginia.
I'm in some straits.
All of "my" cars are either
undriveable or dead
and I'm losing income.

As if on cue, yet another FAKE "hate crime" on campus. Godwin's Law has been repealed.
Democrats are the party of treason. They are also the party of child sex slavery and they can't conceive that everyone else is not sick like them.
Blogbrother SMLE Fan also contemplates.
Still more veteran deaths caused by Veterans Affairs. But as long as they get their six-figure tax-funded bureaucrat bonuses it must be okay.
Going on four hundred years.
I repeat, it is not Republican NRA members shooting 500 600 700-and-counting of each other every year in Chicago and taking away my guns isn't going to stop it.
Republican NRA members threaten to assassinate ObamaNO. WE DIDN'T.
It's not Thanksgiving, it's loot-taking.
I got yer "fake news" right here.
It's not "racist" or "xenophobic" if immigrants really are rapists, thieves, and violent religious extremists. Will you still call me "racist" when your daughters are getting acid thrown in their faces by the people we warned you about?
Back here I observed a list of formerly-prestigious awards which have become worthless, if not outright marks of shame: the Oscar, the Hugo, the Nobel, and now the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Orwell warned us and the other side used his work as instructions.
Further proof that Godwin's Law has been repealed: Remember how the National Socialists blocked Jewish businesses in the 1930s? That could never happen again... RIGHT?
"Protect and Serve" WHO?
What are we paying for?
Why are we paying?
WHY DO WE EVEN HAVE POLICE?
Guuuunnnnnns Iiinnnnnn SPAAAAAAACE
Places to escape to. It appears Alaska, Oklahoma and West Virginia are the only states where the Enemy did not win a single county (Alaska doesn't use counties). Two of those have Constitutional Carry and the other recognizes it. Kansas is presently at the top of my list but Missouri gets Carry at New Year's and they're not looking too bad either, on the map. But I'm stuck here and presently incomeless....
Thanksgiving is over but Christmas and New Year's are coming and MidWestReader sends a recipe:
"Here's something really simple to try as a dessert. Everyone seems to love it. Do the boys have a sweet tooth?
"Get a cheap store-brand no-bake cheesecake mix in a box, like this.
"Make it according to the box instructions, except that when you're mixing the filling, add a few squirts of strawberry flavored syrup, like this.
"This will give the filling a bit of a tart strawberry flavor and color the whole thing pink. Mix it in completely.
"Then when you put the filling into the graham cracker crust, arrange fresh strawberry slices on top of the filling, then put everything into the refrigerator to chill and firm up."
I find myself skimming over Flint & Spoor's Castaway Odyssey. Somehow it's just not grabbing me. Maybe the heavy-handed multiculturalism of the characters is turning me off, though there are many nuts-and-bolts of shipwreck and exploring a new world which should be holding my attention, as Williamson's Contact with Chaos did. Returning to Williamson's Angeleyes.
It's all gone wrong. Decent, honest people can't get ahead or even stay afloat by working for a living anymore.
Not unrelated, Michael G. sends the Hypocrisy o' the Day: "I was working my second, part time, job today as a fast food drive through order taker. Toward the end of the shift I had a customer come through in a recent model Impala. She looked and acted normal, no visible tats or piercings and conservative clothes, but the rear drivers side window had a hand lettered sign taped to it facing out. The top line said [heart] [greater than] [dollar sign] and the second line said 'No DAPL'. Rather ironic, a pipeline protestor going through the drive through lane, and not even in an eco-friendly smug mobile like a Prius or a Smart but a full size Impala."
Michael also sends the continuing degeneration of the place where Britain used to be. Terrorists are protected and their victims are punished.
Conservative business owner rejects gays, blacks, Jews as customersOH. WAIT.
Conservatives make death threats against Electoral College in wake of Obama's reelectionOH. WAIT.
Because they're so "Tolerant" and "Inclusive".
And yes, we're still being lied to. I've been using DuckDuckGo for years now.
What order would you not obey?
But speaking of genocidal dictators and their promises of equality-at-government-gunpoint, FIDEL CASTRO IS DEAD.
"Tolerant" and "Inclusive". Is that a tax-funded school under the Department of Education, condoning and facilitating deadly threats against the President of the United States?
I'll bet you a dollar-I-can't-spare it's not Republican NRA members shooting each other in New Orleans either.
"Palestinians" commit arson, Israelis blamed for trying to turn a desert into a forest. It has been previously observed, "Israelis turn deserts into gardens, Palestinian militants turn gardens into deserts."
Islam is a cult of destruction, murder, slavery, and child-rape. But anyone who tries to point it out is some kind of villain?
In related news, Muslim invaders are raping everything that moves (and some that don't) in Occupied Sweden but the government there thinks psychotic social engineering is more important. -I'm reminded of an incident a few winters back where Seattle refused to use salt on icy roads resulting in terrifying accidents which can't really be called "accidents" now can they?
Via Sarah Hoyt (an author whose work I also enjoy), Michael G. sends free Cubans' reaction to Fidel Castro's long-overdue voyage to Hell.
Turnabout on campus. Declared "terrorist organization" in 3, 2, 1....
There's a reason some of us call him the Prophet Heinlein. (More than one reason.)
More bills piling up and
no income nor a way to generate it.
Hey, what if a Nazi collaborator billionaire really is financing civil unrest and calls to overthrow the government? What if it's not a paranoid conspiracy theory? But they call us "astroturf".
Hey remember when Obama was going to end the wars and bring the troops home and there would be no boots on the ground?
"Tolerant" and "Inclusive". But they accuse us of hate.
And the same willfully-ignorant creatures insist that Islam is a religion of peace.
Speaking of psychotic hypocritical bigots who hate sane people and want them exterminated, they keep praising their own monstrous genocidal kind.
Speaking of psychosis, obviously Ernest Shackleton is part of a vast hundred-year-old corporate oil company conspiiiiiiracy to deny global warming. Because DickCheneyHaliburtonGeorgeDoubleyouBOOOOSH.
Joseph Goebbels is alive and well and working at the Journal of the American Medical Association.
"THREE TIMES this headline writer manages to insert a 'gunman' who never existed into the story" and they wonder why viewers and circulation are down. Yet another "Gun-Free Zone" of course. See also. Aaaaand it's yet another "refugee" from the Islamic world instead of a white Republican NRA member so it'll disappear from the news cycle in 3, 2, 1.... And yet again THE FBI KNEW AND DID NOTHING.
Pr0n and other things. For example, an embellished Webley-Fosbery.
Folks, I repeat my appeal.
Everything is falling apart or running out and
I desperately need funds to stay afloat.

One of theirs. Not one of ours. AGAIN. And the regime keeps bringing MORE of them. IT IS AS THOUGH IT WERE ON PURPOSE.
Directly related, remember when Google's motto was "don't be evil"? Thing is, they really believe they're not. The doctors at Hadamar really believed they were defending the Fatherland.
Also see Goebbels, alive and well and working hard at The Washington Post.
But they call us "intolerant". Hillary Clinton could rape an eight-year-old boy while vivisecting a puppy on live international television and these horrible psychotic bigots would really believe we were faking it.
Col. Kratman's latest column examines "equality". Further examination in comments: "...[T]he worst thing ever done to black society was LBJ's Great Society programs."
There does appear to be a proper Constitutional Carry effort in Texas, being opposed by a short-sighted greedy Quisling along with the usual anti-self-defense perverts.
Here is your Burn the Government Schools o' the Day. You're forced, at implied government gunpoint, to send your children there, and they refuse to provide the service your taxes, also collected at implied government gunpoint, are supposedly paying for. What does that remind me of?
And now I watch the clock tick down toward the next bill I can't pay.
Turning on monetization for
my Tutorial and Disassembly videos.
For whatever that's worth.
And perhaps I should have been
doing that years ago.
I need a new job.
I've killed or lost four cars on this one.
I can do things,
I have computer skills,
I can type with
spelling and punctuation and grammar,
I can create and maintain spreadsheets,
I've done tech support,
I can do photography and videography.
I'm also 49 years old with
arthritis and bad teeth
and no credentials that mean anything.
Don't tell me to go back to college.
For soul-crushing debt and
hate-filled psychotic indoctrination.
Insane bigots like Stephanie Clemons Thompson get fat salaries and benefits and nice cars for never actually producing or providing anything but hate, but I've spent the last twenty years a couple paychecks from homelessness? For trying to work for a living?
Speaking of the insane hating the sane, yet another FAKE "hate crime" on campus. Trump voters are too busy working, to be taxed, to refill these parasites' EBT cards, to actually commit "hate crimes".
AND SPEAKING OF CRIMES OF HATE.
AND SPEAKING OF "FAKE NEWS".
Levi's: No blacks, Jews, or gays in our storesOH. WAIT.
But they call us "hateful" and "intolerant".
Let's see, the Democrats want:
government control of schools
government control of money
government control of wages
government regulation of all business and all resources
government censorship of media and suppression of all dissent
sweeping aside the rule of law whenever they find it inconvenient
overturning of elections
weapons prohibited except for government forces
race-based quotas for jobs and education and benefits stolen by government from the productive class
armed forces allegiance to a particular leader rather than a constitution
and police powers that would make the Gestapo blush.
But they call us "Nazis".
Cool Aviation Story o' the Day.
Constitutional Carry action in Indiana.
