The World Sucks

There's a slowdown at work and the minimum-wage temps
are the first to get laid off.
I'm told to expect to return Friday but
that's not how MY world works....
TIMELY VISUAL AID.


Speaking of jobs, remember, peasant, Democrats are the party for the little guy.

And massive vote fraud.

And my taxes are still propping up parasites who hate me for the color of MY skin.

“To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”

"There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want merely because you think it would be good for him."

Codrea observes the perspective o' the last eight years. It's not Republican NRA members doing it in either country.

"If the grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan were the secretary of education & wanted to sabotage black academic achievement, he couldn't do better than keeping our public school system as it is." Burn the government schools. Remember the federal Department of Education was created within living memory, by Jimmy Malaise I-[Heart]-Yasser-Arafat Carter.

And the colleges too. Of course the "tolerant", "inclusive" "students for peace" might beat us to it....

Which segues to, They Are All So F***ing Ignorant:
black holes are "raaaaaaacist"
the island will tip over
ghost guns with a thirty-caliber clip in half a second
and now the sky is falling. Of course the Prophet did write about that very thing and several times in these pages I've wished for a GiantFlamingMeteor to obliterate the wretched hive of scum and villainy....

Maybe some of the newspapers too. So agenda-driven bigots printing the home addresses of innocent, private citizens because they're doing something the bigots don't like is some kind of "public service" for "social justice", but publishing the contact information for elected public servants is "intimidation" and "harrassment"?

Immigrants Contributing to Society.

Not unrelated, I no longer regret never having served in the military.

RINO backstabbing against Constitutional Carry in North Carolina.

  • Remember, peasant, "law enforcement supports the Second Amendment".
  • Remember, peasant, only police can be trusted with weapons.

    Even with the universe constantly finding new and inventive ways to poop on me, once in a while I smile.

    You can expect Aurora, parts 61 and 62, tomorrow-ish. Kinda starting a new story arc and hopefully resolving one of the big subplots. I'm spending too much time with the ickytrainbuspeople and getting back to the hovel too late and disgusted to polish and post them tonight but tomorrow I don't have a job.

    The World Sucks

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

    Next time someone objects to questioning the patriotism of Democrats and "liberals", smack them right in their lying face. There are some really sick, hate-filled people claiming to be "caring" and "compassionate".

    And remember these are generally the same people who keep inviting unassimilable serial rapists and actual hate-filled murderous terrorists and expecting them to be propped up with real Americans' taxes.

    But they call us violent and intolerant.

    Likewise, astroturf in Alabama.

    MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD

    Boycott the airlines and burn TSA to the ground. Wand-raping little old ladies and stuffing hands down toddlers' pants but hiring actual criminals and letting them steal from their customers for years.

    Which segues to:

  • Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends actual literal armed robbery with badges. Codrea does a whole column. Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said. “They acted in a manner that betrayed their fellow police officers [how, by eventually not sweeping their crimes under the rug?]. I’ve said on more than one occasion: Good cops hate to work with bad cops.” THEN WHY DO THEY, FOR YEARS AND YEARS, AND NEVER SAY OR DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT UNTIL IT CAN'T BE HUSHED UP ANYMORE?
  • Where are all these mythical "good" cops reining in the "few" bad apples?
  • What's the damn difference between one gang and another? Why do we even have police if they're as bad or worse than what they claim to be protecting us from?
  • For further example, Project Gunwalker. "Protect and Serve" WHO?
  • But remember, peasant, only police can be trusted with guns. Because they have all that training.
  • And remember, peasant, body cameras will restore the public's trust in law enforcement and someone will introduce a "law" to exempt police from using them, prevent the videos from ever being made public, and require everyone who isn't a homicidal sociopath-with-a-badge to use them instead.

    Tucson Tom sends "Global Warming" MY ASS.

    Maybe I should move to the Czech Republic.

    Action in Iowa. What are you doing for the Cause?

    If you haven't seen them yet, have a look at Liberty Doll's videos.

    Remember, peasant, you need a factory to build a gun. And then you take a real one off a dead fascist.

    The World Sucks

    The Heller and McDonald decisions were hailed as great advances for restoring the natural human right to keep and bear arms, by recognizing that the right exists and by incorporating it, through the 14th Amendment, to the entire nation. Kolbe v. Hogan could be the next increment. Ooooooorrrr bloody civil war. I'm getting too old and creaky for that Red Dawn stuff but I hope I can take at least one of the fascists with me.

    Michael G. sends, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer helped a Muslim child-rapist enter the United States. Gosh, what would someone call that sort of thing? There should be a word for it....

    Butbutbut Immigrants Contribute to Society!

    And speaking of serial child-rapists, what if Pizzagate is not a paranoid conspiracy theory?

    And speaking of the "religion of peace", in my fictional future history the genocidal dictatorial backlash against the atrocities committed by the followers of Islam began in France.

    Don't Go to College. Where reality holds no sway.

    Is it white Christian Republican NRA members making bomb threats against Jewish centers? NO. NO IT IS NOT.

  • Local judge being investigated for possibly helping illegal immigrant escape ICE agents. Right here in this horrible place. But remember, peasant, you have to work within the system.
  • “In order to believe Mr. Cousins’ claims of racism, you have to believe that seven to eight officers are lying and conspiring..." YEAH, OKAY, AND THEN WHAT?
  • Aaaaaaand the subliterate unaccountable kleptomaniacal serial-child-molesters of TSA, actually literally making up "laws" as they go.
  • What "law" would you not enforce? What order would you not obey?
  • POLICE ARE NOT THE GOOD GUYS.

    Constitutional Carry advances again in South Dakota, North Dakota (for state residents only), and Alabama. Give it a push.

    I've linked this before: All the hate-filled Orwellian propaganda in print and on screens large and small and Our Side complains we don't do anything in response?

    I am a kitteh lover and so is blogbrother SMLE Fan.

    The World Sucks

    The "environmental" movement is not and never has been about the environment. Twenty-four kilotons of trash? Two WW2 cruisers' worth of trash? How the f*** did they get it all there in the first place?

    I am still waiting for TSA agents' rotting corpses dangling from streetlights along every Airport Way in the country, birds pecking at their lifeless eyes MAY THEY ALL BURN IN HELL.


    In Lighter News

    Still uppity in Texas, including Constitutional Carry action. I would move there if it passed, border issues and weird weather and all. If I weren't broke and unmotorized and spending hours on a bus every day to park other people's cars for minimum wage....

    Fabbers will change the world and they're getting closer all the time.

    Made a slight edit to Aurora, part 62, adding a few words and a planetary flag. 63 is underway, while the Muse speaks.

    Show and chat every Sunday 1100PT.


    5008 Sunday, 5 March 2017:

    The World Sucks

    Just yesterday I observed that the environmental movement is not and never has been about the environment and Michael G. sends more evidence. "These are just two cases of many showing that eco-activism and climate alarmism can be toxic, because they are not based on either science or reality." But they are forced on the rest of us at the point of a government gun.

    Remember, peasant, vote fraud is "extremely rare" and has no meaningful impact on elections.

    Hey remember when white conservatives demanded blood in the streets during the Obama regimeME NEITHER.

  • Michael G. sends even more asset forfeiture abuse which is a redundant term because asset forfeiture is abuse and anyone committing it should be jailed and/or hung by the neck until dead for armed robbery. Aaaaaand Trump fails bigly on this point.
  • "The question remains... where the hell are the police, the press obviously know what's going on, where are the cops?" What are we paying for here? "Protect and Serve" WHO?

    In Lighter News

    Oooooookay, the Muse took me in a different direction, or rather a wider turning radius, than I had intended with Aurora, part 63-and-subsequent. Gotta be careful to not write myself into a corner. As David Drake wrote, "Writing isn't easy if you care about the result."


    5009 Monday, 6 March 2017:

    The World Sucks

    Lemme get this... "straight": A Hillary-supporting Muslim shoots up a gay night club and it's all, somehow, the NRA's fault?

    In the place where Sweden used to be, "This is the state of liberalism today. So determined to prove I am wrong, my observations erroneous, the stories I have on tape inaccurate, that it has lost all sight of the raped migrant child crumpled in the corner."

    But tell me again how immigrants contribute to society.

  • Think about the kind of people who don't want you able to defend yourself.
  • Remember, peasant, police are trained professionals who always know what they're doing. And how is that not kidnapping, armed robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, and forcible rape (strip-searched)? And why isn't the costumed robber/kidnapper/attacker/rapist the one in a cage or hanging by the neck until dead?

    In Lighter News

    Ongoing Constitutional Carry action (and respondent slander from "Authorized Journalists") in Tennessee.

    Open Carry, the normalization of which is an increment toward Constitutional Carry, action in Florida.

    Celebratory in New Hampshire: “There’s gotta be 200 guns here and I’ve never felt safer.”

    Michael G. sends backlash. FREE STICKMAN. Do the "anti"-fascists want escalation? My side already has all the guns and we know how to use them.

    Then he sends some truly Lighter News: Justice Clarence Thomas sharply criticizes civil forfeiture laws. ...Remember that meme where Justice Thomas wanted to make it clear that he sleeps with the pillow under his head? Breitbart Syndrome isn't paranoia if the Other Side is constantly saying out loud in as many of their own words how much they hate us and want us to die....

    Almost a decade ago (sigh) my sister and I took a road trip through Montana and Wyoming where I made some observations on the wolf issue. Comes now word that sanity appears to be returning.


    5010 Tuesday, 7 March 2017:

    The World Sucks

    Looks like the GOP likes the idea of forcing people to buy something from the government at government gunpoint. And that's different from the other side how exactly?

    I'm not the first to observe that every twenty or thirty years the envirofascists switch their panicked bleating from "global" "warming" to deadly ice age. Every time, The Only Solution is for everyone but them to give up all industry and technology and freeze to death in the dark. Michael G. comments, "The theory was that the Permian mass extinction, the biggest, was caused by global warming from the CO2 released by the Siberian traps. New evidence is that instead it was caused by an ice age from the sulfur particulates released by the Siberian traps. Funny how that 'settled science' and 'consensus' thing works out."

    Col. Kratman's latest column reminds me that "People who make excuses for communism are just as disgusting as people who make excuses for the Nazis, and should be treated as such."

    In related news, defenders of free speech are banned from speaking freely. But. They. Call. Us. "Nazis".

    AND "RACIST" TOO.

    Hey remember how, for eight years of the Obama usurpation, there was all that right-wing TV programming fantasizing about wiping out the entire administration and millions of people who sided with it? ME NEITHER.

    Immigrants contributing to society.

    Speaking of which, and the utter incompetence and/or unwillingness of hired government thugs to do anything about it, from the place where France used to be, Michael G. sends Poachers broke into the Thoiry Zoo in France and killed a white rhinoceros for its horn, commenting, "Maybe John McCain, Lindsay Graham and people like them should think twice before any trips to France since it isn't safe for white rhinos." [dah-dum-kish]

    Which segues to:

  • What if Big Brother really is watching and so is everyone else? "A whole bunch of Tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theorists are going to look like Nostradamus here very shortly."
  • How many times have I said they like to hurt people and that's why they become cops? Remember this the next time you see those blue lights in the mirror.
  • And the next time you see blue gloves. Rapists should be hung by the neck until dead no matter what costume they're wearing.
  • I saw this article about Black Hills Ammunition winning an FBI contract and the first thing I thought was, Vicky Weaver could not be reached for comment.
  • Tell me again how "law enforcement supports the Second Amendment" and how the sheeeeeeriffs will saaaaaaaave us.
  • "PROTECT AND SERVE" WHO?

    In Lighter News

    Constitutional Carry advances yet again in South Dakota, where it may be vetoed by an oath-breaking anti-self-defense governor but in perspective, "The upshot is that it causes all parties, from senators and members of the house to the governor and law enforcement, to go public with their views. Then gun rights activists know who to target in the next election."

    A little tiny bit of sanity returning to campus and courts: Michael G. sends, "Expelled student's suit against Amherst allowed to proceed - the student expelled for rape from Amherst after a female student performed fellatio on him while he was unconscious. It turned out she had written an article for Huffington Post saying she wanted to see a man expelled from Amherst for rape, and after seeing that evidence of malice not even the unstable SJW freak in a black robe appointed by Obama was willing to dismiss the man's lawsuit."

    What have you done for the Cause?


    5011 Wednesday, 8 March 2017:

    The World Sucks

    Project Gunwalker....

    It's not and never has been Republican NRA members slaughtering each other by the hundreds in Chicago and NOBODY WANTS TO TALK ABOUT THAT.

    YET ANOTHER FAKE HATE CRIME. If some worthless parasitic snowflake says it's been attacked by one of Our Kind, presume it is lying and falsifying evidence.

    But if you want a real hate crime, look no further than the violent unhinged bigots who don't want us able to defend ourselves.

    To which dot connect Goebbels on campus but they call us "Nazis".

    No, really, connect the f***in' dots.

    International Women's Day.

    South Africa has never been a free country.

  • TELL ME AGAIN HOW "LAW ENFORCEMENT SUPPORTS THE SECOND AMENDMENT".
  • "PROTECT AND SERVE" WHO?
  • Yeah I know who: "Police asked members of the crowd whether they had witnessed the events. Then they asked if anyone present had felt directly threatened by the man with the gun. The first person to step up to declare himself a victim was the same obese man who had been helping to instigate the confrontation. He was later a star witness for the prosecution." "In Portland, conservative lives don't matter."
  • Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends another answer: "So these two fine officers were involved in fabricating evidence in a separate incident earlier in 2014, along with a long list of other shakedowns and abuses. And Desormeau was a 'hero', receiving a 'Police Combat Cross' for 'heroism under fire' in 2013. Remember, police are here to help!"
  • I remember they all look the same to me, and what they look like are armed highway robbers in costume. In timely support of which he then sends "Who knew? No municipal parking meters allowed in ND and the greedy grabbers want to dip into the pockets again. 'Parking meters are allowed on state or private property, and some of North Dakota's colleges have them in parking lots. Instead of using meters, many cities enforce parking limits by chalking vehicle tires. The state's two biggest cities, Fargo and Bismarck, have long supported repealing the ban, even arguing once that chalking tires can cause shoulder and elbow injuries for enforcement officers.' I weep, weep bitter tears, I tell you, for the wounded shoulders and elbows of the enforcement officers. ...Nah."

    In Lighter News

    Idaho, like Wyoming and potentially North Dakota soon, has Constitutional Carry, but only for state residents. Such restrictions can be amended. Increments. The same way the enemy has been destroying those same rights for generations.

    Action, including Constitutional Carry, in Minnesota. Adding the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus to my front and links pages.

    ObamaGOPECare visual aids. We didn't hire them to polish the turd but to flush it.

    Immigrants! Contributing! To Society!

    "Why should black and brown girls be allowed to wear shoes or learn to read and act like they are as good as whites? Those are our symbols"OH. WAIT. Explain to me the moral difference. Explain how one position is more "racist" than the other.

    To which dots connect, more than a year ago was reported that after the place where Britain used to be banned guns, they got hand grenades. Michael G. now sends the same thing in the place where Sweden used to be, commenting, "I've got an idea. Why not stop denying Swedes the ability to defend themselves, and stop vilifying and prosecuting those who do defend themselves?"

    In immediate Inbox followup he then sends "And remember, all 'right thinking, compassionate' people think the US should emulate Sweden. A man who was witness to a murder has been murdered himself, along with his wife, by friends of the suspects in the first murder. '- All have non-Western names. I know that one is African. I think the rest have a background in the Middle East or North Africa, said the source.'"

    Jizyah in New York and Connecticut. Explain, in small words, the moral or functional difference.

    RINO backstabbing in Florida. Recall and replace her.

    Are they still arguing about Constitutional Carry in Arkansas? I was under the impression they already had it.

    I don't like Glocks. Ugly, no manual safety, preferred by armed-robbers-in-costume who barely know which end the hot stuff comes out of, IckyPlasticPhooey, burn the Gastonian heretics, All Hail Saint John. But nonsense like this makes me want to go buy one, in an unregistered private sale. BECAUSE F*** YOU THAT'S WHY. "Interestingly, a complete exemption would be included for the U.S. government and agencies." Well of course it would. Just as police will be exempt from using the "smart" guns whose concept was supposedly introduced for their use to prevent badged highway robbers from being shot with their own weapons.

    Which segues to:

  • Michael G. sends some Project Gunwalker content, observing, "ATF leaders again show how much they care about agents in the field." Hey pigs. Who has your back? You constantly demonstrate that you consider your pensions more valuable than our lives - who holds what more valuable than yours?
  • Remember, peasant, you don't need a gun because the police will always be there to protect you. With their government guns, sprinkled with the magic fairy dust of government.
  • Just last week came word that anonymous kangaroo court denunciations could become "law" in Occupied Oregon. Comes now the same thing in Hawaii. But they call us "Nazis".
  • How many times must I ask, what "law" would you not enforce? What order would you not obey?
  • What acts by your "brothers in blue" would you not turn a blind eye to or actively help conceal?
  • TO KEEP YOUR PENSION?

    In Lighter News

    Ongoing Constitutional Carry action in Tennessee and Alabama. Push.

    Codrea expands on the RINO backstabbing in Florida.

    Ever more violence on campus. Don't go to college.

    The next time you hear a feminist expressing support for Islamic "refugees"....

    And speaking of the "religion of peace" toward which we should be "tolerant and inclusive", there was an episode of Babylon 5 where an alien race was escaping a totalitarian regime which suppressed art. There was a movie, Equilibrium, where emotions were considered the source of society's ills and art was condemned for evoking emotions. Then there's all that actual historical National Socialist book-burning and censorship and "degenerate art" exhibits. But that could never happen again... RIGHT?

    Old Media Visual Aid o' the Day. Which doesn't mean I've suddenly become a proponent of the Thin Blue Line:

  • Michael G. sends the pathological liar in costume o' the day. But we should always trust police and immediately obey all their commands and sort it all out in court?
  • Yeah let's talk about those courts. Compare and contrast: this guy does nothing illegal or wrong in self-defense against a violent mob and gets his life ruined by bigoted bureaucrats, while this guy destroys property and injures people repeatedly and gets a wrist-slap? And that's the "system" they keep telling us to "work within"? "Protect and Serve" WHO?
  • Project Gunwalker. Your pension is worth what now?
  • To which dot connect “Today's testimony... should be embarrassing to everybody who does or did carry an ATF badge.” I would think the badge itself, like a TSA uniform, would be embarrassment enough. To say nothing of the kitten-stomping and baby-burning....
  • Sharp ambivalence on this one. F*** you pig, get yer filthy paws outta my pockets, vs. yes, use profiling for f***'s sake. "All passengers are subject to random screening by NYPD and K9 personnel." Aaaaand "f*** you pig" wins.
  • Remember, peasant, nobody wants to confiscate your guns.
  • In Georgia, one legislator apparently doesn't care about freedom unless she personally approves of the behavior. "She wants a government powerful enough to sit in our homes and tell us what we can and can't look at on the internet." And that's... somehow... not Nazi? F*** you I'll build my own and put Linux on it and you can't stop me. ...Legislation to outlaw building computers at home and ban the use of Linux in 3, 2, 1....
  • Wyoming governor Matt Mead evidently wants more self-defense-free-zone massacres in his state.
  • I repeat my demand for jail time or a noose for any costumed hypocritical thief-with-a-badge who ever "confiscated" an "illegal" knife while carrying one just like it.

    Burn in Hell, pigs.
    You all look the same to me.

    THE SWAMP. DRAIN IT.

    Michael G. sends the fabbers changing the world o' the day. Which I have already written about.

    Constitutional Carry and other action in South Carolina. "Very few LEOs ever want this sort of thing because it interferes with their revenue stream for buying the newest and latest Dodge Chargers and all of that new, fancy Comms gear and automatic weapons for the SWAT teams for throwing grenades and busting in doors." At the wrong address.

    Here is your epic psychotic hypocrisy o' the day.

    Union Officials Admit They Let Veterans Die Rather Than Talk To Republicans and why aren't they in jail awaiting execution for treason?

    Michael G. sends yet another reminder that "People who make excuses for communism are just as disgusting as people who make excuses for the Nazis, and should be treated as such."

    To which dot connect, burn the colleges.

    We told them "climate" "change" was a made-up scam and they called us "racist".

    Speaking of "racism", back here I predicted watermelons would become a symbol of it and not long after things started heading that way and now it's milk as some Seeeecret Raaaaacist Dog Whistle? This is supposed to be the Social Justice Warriors' compelling argument? Reckon I'll hafta go get a gallon. And then some chocolate flavor powder to stir in to make ALL the heads explode. Because f*** all of you psychotic morons.

  • "A native of Mexico, Garcia-Ramires had been arrested by ICE twice, in 2011 and 2016, but both times he was released on bond" but tell me again how that makes me "racist" and tell me again who exactly you are "protecting" and "serving".
  • Pennsylvania perpetuates prohibition. I demand jail time or a noose for any hypocritical thief-with-a-badge who ever "confiscated" an "illegal" knife, and for any prosecutor-persecutor or unstable-freak-in-black-robes who upheld such bigotry.

    Richard Williams of GunSafeAble.com alerted me to a couple dead links, so I fixed those and added his.

    Show and chat every Sunday 1100 Pacific Time.

    Aurora, part 63, is online. One thing that's worried me for a long time is the different calendars, Terran/Gregorian vs. Jeffersonian/Monticellan (the planet Monticello, named for Thomas Jefferson's home of which he was the architect, is the fictional second planet in the Tau Ceti system). Way back when I started writing this universe I did some actual math and generated a spreadsheet with formulae to make conversions, with a plus or minus offset because the Monticellan calendar starts arbitrarily on 11 April 2009 CE, the date of the Jeffersonian Republic's Declaration of Independence - and the days and years are different lengths too. Researching the problem to see how other authors tackled it I happened across the concept of decimal time, in which each day of the calendar has a decimal value relative to the whole year, not unlike the stardates in (some) incarnations of Star Trek.

    Turns out I didn't have that quite right, especially the offset, but lacking a dead-tree book to read I've been taking my laptop (donated by Michael G.!) to work for breaktime use, with some ebooks on it and copies of the HTML files in which I write the story. Well, over the last couple days I revisited that spreadsheet and I think I've got it fixed. Here's screenshots:

    Note, in each image, there are two cells highlighted. In the first image, at lower left, B112 in the horizontally-split screen, is April 11th, the date my fictional Founders fictionally Escaped from Terra in 2009CE. That has a value, at the end of the day, of 0.276522951 of a year (figuring a year as 365.25 days or 8766 hours to smoosh in the leap years). Then in the upper split, C8 (and C9 which I simply duplicated for convenience), is one of the two formulae, which you can see revealed in the editing box: a Monticellan/Republic date from A8 or 9, also expressed as decimal time, multiplied by the fractional difference between the Monticellan and Terran year, plus the offset of 2009.276523 Terran years, so I can plug in a Jeffersonian Republic/Tau Ceti II date and get an Anno Domini/Common Era date. The cells in C4 and C5 above that reverse the formula algebraically (from inputs in A4 or 5) so I can plug in AD and get JR. Thus 562.116 is very early in the notional morning (Monticello Standard Time, set on the longitude of Central Terminal, the big spaceport on South Continent, and of Monticello Station in synchronous orbit above it) of 22 Firstmonth in the 562nd Monticellan year of the Republic, which translates to about midday on 17 September 2360AD. In the second image, B271 is the aforementioned 17 September, while A4 is just a round number plugged in to demonstrate the reverse formula, highlighted in C4 and revealed in the editing box. So New Year's Day in 2300AD just happens to be about 2 Firstmonth 465JR - bearing in mind a Monticello/Republic year is roughly two-thirds Terran, the ends of each are going to sort of line up once in a while.

    Now note the two pairs of columns in the lower pane. Those pairs do not interact with each other by formula, nor are they aligned with each other in any way other than coincidence - the Monticellan year has 181 days, each of which is six-and-a-bit hours longer than a Terran day. The two pairs of columns are simply tables to look up the decimal value of any calendar date, which is then manually tacked onto the whole-number year being used in the story, then plugged into the upper cells' formulae to get the other-calendar decimal equivalent, which is then looked up in the other column to get the date. Column A is the AD calendar date, B is that date expressed as a decimal of a Terran year. D is the fictionally-arbitrary Monticellan/Republic/Tau Ceti II date, which would be written as "1 Firstmonth", "23 Fifthmonth", etc; days are 30-hours-and-a-few-minutes long, there are six months in the fictional Tau Ceti II year, the first five have 30 days, the last 31-and-a-few-leftover-hours and computerized timepieces tack the extra onto the end in what's called "Tempus Gratis" in Republic culture. Column E is the decimal expression of a Monticellan calendar date. The only formulae in those columns are, the first date in each has a value of the end of that day relative to that calendar's year - 0.002737851 Terran, 0.005524862 [WRONG: 0.003454131] Monticellan. Then the cell below is (cell above + that same value), repeated all the way down, so 12/31 and 6/31 end up at 1.0 or close enough for story purposes.

    And all that without a single drop of rum college degree or Microsoft Excel certificate.

    So that's how I tackle the problem of converting alien calendars for different planets for writing science fiction and I hope those keywords turn up in your search engine if you have the same problem. Now I have to go back through everything I've written and fix several dates. Fortunately I was deliberately vague about the Terran date-equivalents and there won't be many to change.

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, warns of the next bad thing. "If the phrase 'President Andrew Cuomo' doesn't curdle your blood and induce existential terror, it should."

    In the place where Sweden used to be, Michael G. sends "The social burden on the family, after being outed, is massive for the family, as they are considered outcasts by society because of how the media reports the news" of an innocent, decent, reasonable Swedish citizen subject asking questions about unchecked, unexamined mass immigration by unassimilable rape-and-murder gangs from Islamic countries who are also actual bomb-planting terrorists. “We will examine who lives near the stairwell and knock on doors to see if anyone saw or heard anything yesterday” and then ostracize them and maybe throw them in jail if they did.

    Hey I screwed up the calendar again, losing one whole day at the end of the Monticellan year, 31 Sixthmonth. And there will still be a creeping error that will build over decades or centuries. Close enough for story purposes. Back to the HTML mines.... Pretty sure I got them all this time.

    For further example, the man who supports the political party that put him, personally, in a concentration camp.

    Hey... what if the Obama regime really did wiretap the Trump campaign?

    Michael G. sends All We Could Do Was Scream "...because, you see, Germans aren’t allowed to carry guns unless they are police officers." And how's that working out for you? Would those be the same police officers who obeyed orders to turn water cannons on German citizens for the "crime" of protesting the immigration of just such violent criminals? "Please, someone make the comment about how this response is morally better than an armed citizen shooting the asshole in the face. Then explain that to the 13-year-old girl who nearly had her arm hacked off."

    And that's different from here how exactly?

    Which segues to:

Naturally they voted for more and ever more of other people's money. Eventually the money ran out. The government printed more but the whole world knew it was worthless. The whole system collapsed."

The optimistic scenario is a free enclave establishes which eventually retakes the rest of the country. That is what happened in the revolt against Spain, and even there they failed to recover what is now Belgium."

    MidWestReader contemplates handgun design philosophy: "Once upon a time, when FMJ roundnose was the only ammunition there was for semiauto handguns, and these pistols had short steep feedramps and single-stack magazines that held the top cartridge as low as possible, there were not lots of reports of extraction or ejection problems. The current design philosophy for striker-fired polymer pistols is magazines that hold the top cartridge as high as possible, so as not to interfere with the feeding of wide-mouth JHP rounds or more exotic shapes, and these pistols often, though not always, are designed so the fired cartridge case being pulled out of the chamber may bump into the front of the magazine tube, or the top cartridge, to help bump it out of the ejection port. Nowadays one hears of Glocks giving users brass to the face--though it was not always commonplace, and may be an artifact of recent money-saving design changes to use extractors and ejectors that are MIM and stamped sheetmetal respectively instead of milled tool steel. M&Ps in 9mm do it occasionally. Glocks and M&Ps in .40 have very vigorous extraction and do not exhibit BTTF. XDs don't give the user BTTF that I know of, though the .45 versions are finicky about ammo, particularly cast lead flatnose bullets, due to the top round in the magazine being held so high.

    So a while back, a black gay Obama-voting TV reporter murdered his white coworker for imagined racism. Comes now Sudden Social Justice Syndrome.

    But America's richest hate group calls us "racist".

    Hey... what if... the Obama regime... really did spy on the Trump campaign? And would that, somehow, be morally different from a Republican administration spying on a Democrat candidate?

    And the two parties are different how exactly?

    They both seem to hate Trump and want him to die.

    Immigrants! Contributing! To Society!

    "...Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu threatened, 'Soon wars of religion ... will start in Europe.' This might happen because, he added, 'We could open the way for 15,000 refugees ... each month and blow [Europe’s] mind.'" Aaaaaaand I'm a prophet. Okay, sure, let's have a rematch between the Cross and the Crescent. How many thermonuclear-tipped submarine-launched ballistic missiles does Al Qaeda have? Do you really want to let that djinn out of its bottle? BECAUSE MY SIDE IS HOLDING THE STOPPER AND WE'RE GETTING TIRED OF YOUR S***.

    "Government spending as a percent of the total economy went through the roof, from 2 percent in 1900 to more than 20 percent today." But when I proposed a Constitutional cap on government spending this one guy looked at me like I was crazy. Like he thought all that stuff really was government's business.

    And speaking of totalitarian regimes, it's not paranoia if they really do want to put us all on a government list. There's only one reason to do that.

  • Hey look, the kitten-stomping baby-burning sociopaths of BATFE change the rules, again.
  • Doctors as agents of the state! But they call us "Nazis"!
  • Tell me again how it's "just a few bad apples". Convince me it's not the inherent nature of the barrel.
  • Hey remember the pitchfork murders in Merced, CA? That could never happen again... RIGHT? What "law" would you not enforce?
  • "No person shall... be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law"OH. WAIT. What order would you not obey?
  • "PROTECT AND SERVE" WHO?
  • "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated"OH. WAIT.
  • Michael G. sends, "I have a constitutional and a human right, guaranteed under the Second Amendment, to defend my family, my life, and my home. Unless, of course, the people pounding on the door are cops who 1) had no search warrant, 2) didn’t turn on their emergency lights, 3) didn’t identify themselves as police, 4) misunderstood a neighbor’s directions, and 5) showed up at the wrong house, the house of a completely innocent man. Then, my right to defend myself turns into a right to die in two seconds flat, without firing a shot or even clambering a round." Now explain to me in small words why I shouldn't shoot every cop on sight in logical and rational self-defense, as I would a rattlesnake or a rabid dog. "Deputy Sylvester testified that Scott 'flung open' the door and pointed his gun directly at his face." And there's no body-cam video to back up that story because...?

    And think about the kind of costumed sociopaths-with-badges who would support such a bill and enforce such a "law":

  • Tell me again how "law enforcement supports the Second Amendment".
  • Tell me again how "only police can be trusted with guns".
  • Tell me again how police lack the resources and funding to investigate property crimes.
  • Michael G. sends (and I think I've seen this somewhere else already but can't recall), Idaho boy sprayed by cyanide planted by US Department of Agriculture, dog killed, asking, "I wonder what would happen to one of us if we deployed cyanide mines on the edges of our property and someone was injured by them? Even if we had notified people of their presence and had them marked with warning signs?" Which the government DIDN'T do AND HOW IS THAT NOT ATTEMPTED MURDER AND WHY IS THE PERPETRATOR STILL COLLECTING A TAX-FUNDED PAYCHECK?
  • WHAT "LAW" WOULD YOU NOT ENFORCE? WHAT ORDER WOULD YOU NOT OBEY?

    Oil prices drop when we drill for our own. Who could have imagined such a thing?

    So, after eight years of the Usurper driving never-before-seen numbers of arms sales to private non-government citizens, not only are crime rates down, but so are firearms accidents negligence (not counting government thugs who need entire product lines to be invented to reduce the number of bullet holes in their precinct locker rooms...). How do you anti-self-defense, only-police-should-have-guns perverts explain that? Isn't that the exact and complete opposite of what you always say is supposed to happen?

    VCDL-PAC endorses Corey Stewart for Governor of Virginia. VCDL is one of the few organizations to actually regain ground in this war, bringing back unlicensed open carry and being largely responsible for National Park carry. I would consider their endorsement to outweigh all others. Alas, I'm still trapped on the other end of the continent....

    The World Sucks

    I'm morbidly interested to see how this gets blamed on American gun shows and the NRA. Hey I know, let's register all cars with the government! That'll stop it! "Why are Brits being arrested for Tweets while Islamists are free to walk around Parliament draped in the ISIS flag?" Meanwhile Michael G. sends the Epic Bad Timing o' the Very Same Day, commenting, "Running this college editorial on the need to understand and accept Islam the same day a Muslim attacks London pedestrians with a car, then the House of Parliament with a knife. Of course it was a pretty stupid editorial even without the attack. Like the 'obvious' examples of attacks on Islamic culture were all responses to threats. The UK laptop on flights ban was a response to a particularly specific threat. The warning that the same rulings allowing bans on Muslim garb could be used against Christians? That happened a long time ago. And give me a break on 'religion of peace'! When so many who attack us have spent years studying their Koran maybe they have a better idea of what their religion calls for than a college undergrad parroting what someone else told them the Koran says." And then, guess what Wikipedia chose as their Featured Article o' the Day:

    Michael follows up with, "You know how [the envirofascists] said [the Dakota Access Pipeline] would be sure to leak and spill oil? Funny how they didn't mention it was because they were going to cut the holes themselves." Because they care so much about the environment. "What I want to know is if they had any way to check and make sure there wasn't oil in the pipeline yet when they started cutting. Because if they just assumed it was empty we are moving into Darwin award territory. Since they don't like fracked natural gas either maybe they could try that on a natural gas pipeline."

    It is not Republican NRA members with government permission to carry concealed weapons, who go around raping college students. We're the ones trying to stop it and driving it to other campuses that don't allow students to defend themselves.

    Don't Go to College, where thought goes to die, and because there's nothing holding it up.

    "...Napoleon emerged from the farmhouse, wearing both his medals (for he had recently awarded himself ‘Animal Hero, First Class’ and ‘Animal Hero, Second Class’)...."

    Hey... what if the Russians really did interfere in our elections?

  • So Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch says he'll rule on the Heller decision because it's "the law of the land". The Lairds of Fairfax and the talkers on AM radio break out the party favors but what I heard was, Gorsuch will rule on whatever someone tells him the law is. Everything Hitler did was "legal".
  • "An internal review found that the [Kansas City Police Crimes Against Children Unit] had “severely mishandled” 150 criminal cases involving child sex abuse, rape and molestation." But if we exercise a Constitutionally-guaranteed natural human right without their permission, we get treated like "criminals"?
  • "...[W]hy do you suppose that these effects are only recognized by the courts when they occur to the police?" And they wonder why some of us smile when we hear about another cop getting shot....
  • In Occupied Oregon, "A law enforcement officer should not be allowed to question you anywhere, anytime about whether or not you are exercising a Constitutional right." (Update)
  • Related, in Occupied New Jersey, doctors as agents of the state. What could possibly go wrong?
  • Blood Libel and "Papieren, bitte" in Occupied Connecticut.
  • In Kansas, "Some people want the court to side with the prosecutors against people who make self defense claims." And that's supposed to be... "unbiased" and "impartial"...?
  • Remember, peasant, police should be exempt from domestic violence prohibitions on owning guns.
  • "PROTECT AND SERVE" WHO?

    And if that doesn't make an outraged parent want to burn the government schools then civilization has already failed.

    "Democratic congressional candidate Jon Ossoff has received over $5,000 in compensation from Qatari-owned Al Jazeera since January 2016" and how is that anything but treason?

  • "Any time a law has a carve out for LEOs or exempts a certain class of people, you know it is a bad law."

  • Japan has never been a free country and I don't think they can imagine being one.

  • So I think these daily dots of badgethuggery have dispelled the notion that bad cops are only "a few bad apples". Ever wonder what becomes of the ones that can't be swept under the rug anymore? Michael G. sends, "Instapundit linked to this blog post of a letter and response that is incredibly revealing of the state of the leadership of medical associations. To control their membership the leaders of one group brought in an ex-cop felon as an enforcer. The letter is a defense of the enforcer, saying he is being libeled. The response has chapter and verse showing all their statements are true. And commenters dig into the letter writer's background and he turns out to be a lawyer who was disbarred for eight years."

    NORTH DAKOTA GETS CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY but for state residents only. By my reckoning, and with Arkansas returning to "disputed" status, that makes nine, and six halves, and four quarters:
    2003 Alaska
    2010 Arizona
    2015 Kansas
    2015 Maine
    2016 Mississippi
    2017 Missouri

    2016 West Virginia
    2015 Arkansas (disputed)
    2016 Idaho (state residents only)
    1991 Montana (outside city limits)
    2017 North Dakota (state residents only)
    1996 (2013?) Oklahoma (provable, eligible residents of Constitutional Carry states may carry without license)
    2011 Wyoming (state residents only)
    2015(?) New Mexico (unloaded carry, separate loaded magazine; vehicle carry unlicensed)
    2015 Puerto Rico (disputed)
    2007 Texas (vehicle carry unlicensed - 2016, open carry with concealed permit)
    2014 Tennessee (vehicle carry unlicensed)

    Meanwhile, veto override effort in South Dakota.

    Additionally, Constitutional Carry action introduced in Nebraska, which, I have the impression, has been quite behind the curve. "Do you need a permit to keep the state from searching your home?"

    Our real enemies are mostly white English speaking Christians.” But they call us "racist".

    It's not "racist" or "islamophobic" if they really are incompatible with civilization.

    "Not even a year after Radical Islamic terrorist Omar Mateen killed 49 people at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub, Rollins College officials are punishing a Christian Conservative student who challenged a liberal Muslim professor and radicalized Muslim student during a conversation on the application of Sharia Law.... Apparently freedom of speech is not allowed on campus, unless it offends Christian beliefs."

    Michael G. sends, "The whole mentality around Earth Hour demonizes electricity. I cannot do that, instead I celebrate it and all that it has provided for humanity." While North Koreans freeze to death in the dark and eat each other in pursuit of the glorious future of guaranteed equality in harmony with nature. To which infrastructure dot connect Desert Hermit Joel's contemplation of a decentralized grid and my prophetic take on the same issue.

    Baen Books is a major publisher of science fiction and fantasy. Many of the authors in the Baen stable are conservative and/or libertarian. One of those is Lt. Col. Tom Kratman, US Army retired. There is a forum site called Baen's Bar where the various books and other things are discussed. Kratman's section of that site is called KratSkellar, which is German for cellar (because German = National Socialist in the minds of people who are too comfortable in their brainwashed bigotry to stop and think about anything and let's melt some more snowflakes BFYTW). One has to be a registered user to access those forums (which I am, surprised my login still works after many moons), but Michael G. sends word from KratSkellar that someone has found evidence - which may be a hoax but how can we tell anymore? - externally linked in this screenshot from another source, that the college protestors-vandals-rioters really are deliberately conspiring with Muslims to destablize American society and overthrow a duly elected President of these decreasingly-United States. There should be a word for that.

    A while back I wrote, "Our medical technology can repair almost any injury, cure almost any disease...." Michael G. sends a possible treatment for sepsis, commenting, "I got this link from Instapundit. I'd like to get details of the solution they use, sepsis is a major problem in SHTF self care, being able to mix up a batch at need could be a literal life saver. Also it would be good to be able to send the recipe to Joel, as an amputee he is at higher risk of sepsis." In the same excerpt I wrote, "...and everyone can afford it because government has stayed out of the way of its development. Medicines, surgical techniques, treatments, compete in an open market, without crippling regulations and crushing taxes. Those which can't produce what the customer wants or needs, go out of business. Those which deliver are rewarded with more customers, and profits, which they use to improve their processes and reduce costs still further, before a competitor beats them to it...." To which prophetic dot connect, from the news item: 'But he said it will be difficult to fund because it uses drugs that have been on the market for decades: “We are curing it for $60. No one will make any money off it.”'

    DON'T GO TO COLLEGE and maybe that big tax-funded welfare system wasn't such a good idea after all.

    Constitutional Carry veto override fails in South Dakota. But now you know who to run out of office before you send it through again.

    In North Carolina, "There is a call for civil rights to be recognized and protected only when institutions overtly decide to recognize them." Do you really want to set that precedent? Do you really believe your side will always be in charge?

  • Remember, peasant, police will always be there to protect and serve you.
  • Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe doesn't want domestic violence victims able to defend themselves. Think about that.
  • Then think about the kind of people...
  • ...who enforce laws making decent people defenseless.
  • And all their "brothers in blue" who know for years and do nothing.
  • Michael G. sends, "Breaking a prisoner's neck, then letting him die of dehydration in his own urine and s*** over several days because you think he's 'faking it' is not covered by qualified immunity. For now." No one in the law enforcement community has any right to get upset when I call them sadistic perverts and homicidal sociopaths. And what was he even in jail for? "Charges had not yet been filed against him when he died...."
  • "A state may not impose a charge for the enjoyment of a right granted by the Federal Constitution... The power to impose a license tax on the exercise of these freedoms is indeed as potent as the power of censorship which this Court has repeatedly struck down... a person cannot be compelled 'to purchase, through a license fee or a license tax, the privilege freely granted by the Constitution'"BUT TELL ME AGAIN HOW "LAW ENFORCEMENT SUPPORTS THE SECOND AMENDMENT".

    GOPE Visual Aid o' the Week. And that reminds me of a thing I heard on talk radio today that ticked me off - that Republicans were afraid of "spending all their political capital to repeal Obamacare". That's not how political capital works. We hired them to do a specific thing, to get rid of a horrible made-up "law" that forced innocent people to buy, at implied government gunpoint, a thing we do not want, cannot afford, and which doesn't work anyway. IT'S NOT THAT F***ING HARD. Actually getting rid of it would have gained immense "political capital" in our accounts. But it's not our accounts they're worried about. They only care about their tax-funded perks and the next beltway martini-fest. They don't want to get disinvited to the next gathering of the Ruling Elite.

    Not unrelated in the larger picture, "...[T]he Navy has to go back to the core mission, and ruthlessly discard anything that interferes with that."

  • Muslims attempting to warn authorities about their own family members' criminal acts are dismissed as islamophobic. THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • When I win UltraBall and launch my dream CNC fabbery making new-in-box Luuuuugers for $600 MSRP, my company will clearly advertise that it will not sell to or service any government agency. Why would any company do business with the very same hired thugs who will obey orders to rob their other customers of those very same products and murder them if they resist?
  • Slander, lies and blood libel in Florida. Actual serial rapists, robbers and murderers get wrist-slaps and revolving doors, while decent citizens who defend themselves against the monsters the system lets loose are destroyed by that same system.
  • THE SAME SYSTEM THEY KEEP TELLING US TO "WORK WITHIN".
  • "Kind'a makes you wonder what other reports they may have falsified, and who else may have had to pay for lies."

    IMMIGRANTS CONTRIBUTING TO SOCIETY. I've covered this one before - the victim was a supporter of the very same "refugees" she was raped and murdered by, as was her father. "The German government is completely insane. They're pretty much rewarding this man for raping and murdering one of their own children."

    It is still not Republican NRA members slaughtering each other in Chicago and NOBODY WANTS TO TALK ABOUT THAT.

    Speaking of not wanting to talk, remember when college campuses were bastions of free speech and opposing points of view challenging the orthodoxy of the establishment?

    "As to the species of exercise, I advise the gun. While this gives a moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise, and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body, and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks." - Thomas Jefferson

    It's not paranoia if.... This is why my fictional future history has dispensed with infrastructure.

    Remember Dan Rather's downfall due to "fake but accurate"? How about just fake. And that also is why my fictional future history has duelling in the Constitution.

    Apparently some members of the Republican Establishment, and some we thought weren't, are blaming the Freedom Caucus, successors to the Tea Party, for killing RINOCare or RyanCare, the practically-indistinguishable "repeal-and-replacement" for ObamaCare. I don't blame them a bit. They seem to be the only people in the District who have any idea what they're supposed to be doing.

    Speaking of RINO backstabbing, Georgia could use a new governor, and so could Tennessee.

    How many times have I said there's nothing holding it up? Many believe the crash has already begun, but we're so high up, and running on so much momentum, the masses haven't noticed yet. This year, Tweeting each other over the iPhone Elebenty. Next year, murdering each other over a can of pork-n-beans?

    Remember how often police shoot some kid with a toy gun and go home at the end of their shift? Why should the rules be any different for us? Explain it to me.

  • "...[S]uch arrogance reflects imperious rejection of the right to self-determination for Europeans...." Has there ever been a free country in Europe? Compared to us there has never been one anywhere but here, ever....
  • "That should make the sale of anything other than smart guns illegal...."
  • Except for the hired government thugs
  • enforcing those "laws" at the point of a government gun.
  • You know something's wrong with your society when supermarkets and schools have parking spaces reserved for police vehicles.
  • They like to terrorize and humiliate people and that's why they become cops.
