RIFLEMAN'S JOURNAL - OCTOBER 2017
The World Sucks
So, yeah, there really is a conspiracy between communists and show business. And they wonder why their ratings keep dropping, and why I get DVDs from the library instead of watching movies in a theater.
And as if on cue, from today's Sunday chatroom:
Dean Kalifornia: I see there will be a 6 part series on Waco in January on Paramount network. Don't think I get that channel.
Dean Kalifornia: Janet Reno gets to murder people
Jeffersonian1: lemme guess, pushing the child-rape angle, and probably some druuuugz dealing that probably never happened
Jeffersonian1: and of course they were all NRA members who supported Trump a quarter-century before he was elected
Dean Kalifornia: Of course.
Dean Kalifornia: And cannibals
Jeffersonian1: and BATFE and Janet Reno and Bill Clinton were Such Great Heroes for burning all those toddlers
Dean Kalifornia: They should be given a medal by Obumass
And that's not a paranoid conspiracy theory.
Meanwhile in the place where Spain used to be, government suppression of independence movement. Coming soon to an economic death-spiral near us.
Speaking of economic death spirals, don't go to college.
And then this happens. Explain in small words how that makes me "racist".
In Lighter News
Fabbers will change the world. Yes, they can print circuit boards now, which means the von Neumann machine is also in reach (as is the robot apocalypse...). Of course these machines are still obscenely expensive, but again I remind you that the first "pocket" calculators cost a month's wages, and to compare their capabilites to the scientific calculator you can get from the back-to-school aisle at your local mega-lo-mart for the price of a fast-food lunch. This technology is going to get better and cheaper and faster, and a hundred years from now - or fifty, or twenty - it will be as unthinkable to have a home without one as living without flush toilets and electric refrigerators is today.
And. As. If. On. Cue.
"Heinlein’s books were a refuge, where logic made sense, things worked, and I often found that he could explain things I couldn’t."
So some nut cracks and shoots up a country-western concert full of white patriotic conservatives and the blood-dancing starts so fast a reasonable person has to wonder if they were expecting it.
And it's all, somehow, our fault.
What if it's not a paranoid conspiracy theory?
Immigrants Contributing to Society-fatigue....
Which segues to, years ago I wrote "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 was I right, again?
Oh, yeah, go to college, go deep into soul-crushing debt to get brainwashed by actual violent psychotic bigots.
F*** Britain, Chapter MMMMMCCXIX.
I've wanted one of these since they first came out. Particularly the all-stainless model, not the modern plastic-frame stuff. $igh.
All those science fiction shows with high-tech displays. Getting there.
Back in 2001 there was a report about a Budweiser delivery man delivering beer to a convenience store run by some Islamist who was celebrating the 9/11 attacks, going back in and un-stocking the store's coolers. That story was probably fake. Looks like this one isn't.
Was listening to Lars Larson on the radio today and he mentioned that several callers had suggested the Las Vegas massacre was a false-flag attack, to which he responded, there was no way to fake that many deaths and injuries. As usual for establishment "conservatives", he has a firm grasp on the wrong end of the equation. A 64-year-old white millionaire real-estate agent with no criminal record - but with former employment as an IRS agent and registered to vote as a Democrat, last I heard - decides to shoot up a crowd of, yes, mostly white patriotic conservatives? Just a couple weeks after a white American Christian uses his non-government gun to defend his fellow churchgoers from a Sudanese immigrant with Islamic ties, a graphic slap in the face to the entire leftist party platform? And the enemies immediately call for more violations of our natural human rights as though they were expecting this to happen and had their responses prepared? Of course those people really were wounded and killed. That's not the flag being falsified.
To which dot connect, "Not all cultures are equal." "The American left shares many of the cultural values of the Middle East, including the practice of brutalizing anyone who openly disagrees with them."
Aaaaand the RINOs fold like a cheap pocketknife. With additional Quisling sauce.
"...[T]he idea that humankind can be made better...."
Speaking of false flags.
Michael G. sends, "IRS issues contract to Equifax. To protect taxpayers' information. And it was a no-bid contract, too." What could possibly go wrong? ...And which three-letter agency was the Las Vegas murderer reportedly employed by?
Speaking of cultures not being equal....
The next time August 6th rolls around....
F*** Australia. Any civilization that obeys orders to disarm doesn't deserve to survive.
And Britain too. Speaking of firmly grasping the wrong end of the equation.
Which segues to well f***, looks like my fictional future history is off by a decade.
Government "health" "care" spends $110,000 in legal fees to avoid spending $6,000 actually providing care. And it's all tax dollars.
Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends a time when some men in the United States Army knew what the hell they were doing.
Which segues to, Department of Defense drops SPLC from "extremist" training materials. SPLC is an extremist hate group.
Hey NFL loses another sponsor. What did they think would happen?
Looks like someone at The Washington Post took the red pill.
Linux is looking better all the time. ;)
Brad Thor's Scot Harvath series is kinda disappointing. The protagonist continunally displays arrogant, unprofessional behavior, the author uses incorrect firearm terminology, and less than halfway through the second book the formula becomes evident: Harvath goes hunting for some terrorist, has misadventures all around the world, is always The One Guy Who Saves the Day, and hooks up with a hot chick who is conveniently discarded in the first couple chapters of the following novel. Sigh. Heinlein has spoiled me....
"...[G]overnment officials... [have] given us plenty of cause to question their trustworthiness...."
It sure is looking like Matthew Bracken should be called "Prophet". On the other hand, Michael G. sends John Ringo's alternate theory.
I suppose there will be another buying panic now....
Don't Go to College, where people actually literally hate you and want to murder you.
But they call us "racist".
Aaaand there's still nothing holding it up.
Soak the government schools in disinfectant and then burn them.
Uppity in Raleigh, North Carolina, Wednesday the 11th.
Linux is looking better all the time.
We are being lied to. This should bother you.
It's not paranoia if they really are openly calling for our mass murder.
Michael Z. Williamson weighs in on staggeringly-willful ignorance. Also see. Which segues to:
American Rifleman magazine, October 2017 issue, page 65, Mr. Browning's Gun, by Bruce N. Canfield, Field Editor: "The legendary inventor John Moses Browning began work on an air-cooled, recoil-operated machine gun of his own design, which resulted in the introduction of the Model 1895" WHICH IS GAS OPERATED, which he actually says several paragraphs along. "Layers of editorial oversight"?
Meanwhile, the selfsame Lairds of Fairfax f*** us in the a**, again.
Sounds like Trump isn't folding. Gods be thanked. If Hillary had got back into that House there'd be door-kicking cops and innocent citizens slaughtering each other coast-to-coast by now.
Puerto Rico is still f***ed but some people are doing something about it.
VCDL strikes again, with a significant increment in DC-of-all-places. Still shouldn't have to beg some bureaucrat bigot's extortionate permission to defend one's own life....
In the ongoing serial part of my fictional future history, I make several references to earbuds translating language in realtime. SMLE Fan observes, working on it... though not without issues.
The Second Amendment is not about hunting.
And neither are bump stocks.
And neither are bump stocks.
Buuuut still more RINO backstabbing.
And other kinds.
Years ago I wrote: "'Something must be done'?" Sol shook his head. "Those four words have led to the greatest atrocities in the histories of every known race, slavery and murder on industrial scales, devastation of entire continents...." And the whole world keeps proving me right.
The next time you meet someone wearing NFL merchandise....
Remember that bit in Atlas Shrugged (the book, which I have actually read, not the film trilogy, adapted and performed by people who, I bet, mostly didn't) where art and entertainment were crap and everyone applauded because they just couldn't tell anymore?
(Kids these days, thinking the Glock is the Greatest Thing, never having felt the quality of a 1911 trigger, even in a Cheap Philippine Clonetm....)
Hey remember those leftist memes smooshing Obama's face together with Lincoln's?
The official story is really not adding up.
Not everyone is swallowing the lies.
Blogbrother SMLE Fan also observes an important increment in DC.
Michael G. sends an effort to restore Texas history.
The world needs more people like this. In an alternate timeline I woulda hired him....
The Muse has returned and Aurora's next course has been set. Might be a while before she gets there though. If you find these stories entertaining, please consider a charitable donation through the PayPal buttons at the top or bottom of most pages on this site. Thank you.
There really is a concerted and deliberate effort to misinform everyone about everything. Aaaand it's working.
"The Republican leadership would rather oppose President Trump than support the grassroots." And how does that make them any different from our actual enemies?
Immigrants Contributing to Society....
...And Enemies Domestic also. But y'all just keep right on calling me "racist".
A while back I wrote: "San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge had fallen during the War of Unification, and the Terran Empire had never bothered rebuilding it; why make it easier for the subjects to travel?" And I was right, again.
I keep telling you to think about the kind of people who don't want you able to defend yourself.
In my first oped video I mentioned the argument that private citizens with privately-owned weapons would be no match for government forces. The Viet Cong, Filipinos, and lots of other people have some objections.
Adding Ohioans for Concealed Carry to my front and links pages.
Prohibition Will Always FAIL. And there's always another way.
The Prophet Heinlein's power-armored Mobile Infantry. Working on it. (And, as the Prophet himself indicated, they're not invincible either.)
Show and chat every Sunday 1100 Pacific Time.
"...Wilson and FDR... never got as bad as in other countries at the same time, because, well... because an armed populace might not put up with it." And, so far, we haven't.
But the GOPE keeps f***ing us in the a**....
A couple weeks ago I asked, "If actual white supremacists were writing scripts for this behavior to justify racial backlash as legitimate self-defense, how would it be different?" If Diane "Turn 'em all in" Feinstein were providing props and direction for the Vegas massacre to justify her control-fantasy agenda, how would that be different?
Last month I asked, "Why does anyone still live in Occupied California?"
They call us bloodthirsty nuts while celebrating when we get murdered?
And we're the ones getting treated like terrorists?
Speaking of "terrorists", the place where Britain used to be has never been a free country. -Could use another wave of Vikings to flush the place out and maybe revitalize the gene pool... buuuuuut Sweden can't provide them and Norway's not much better at last report.
Gunbroker receives cluebat, shakes it off.
As for football, when the Vice-President of the United States of America walks out on you, maybe you're doing something wrong.
Immigrants. Contributing to Society. But keeping them out is "racist".
Don't Go to College, where you go into soul-crushing debt to get brainwashed by psychotic bigots who are disconnected from reality.
"You cannot tell people to consider their skin color at all times, then act surprised that people are doing just that."
And as if on cue.
It's not paranoia if I really am surrounded by people who hate me and want me to die. For the color of my skin.
No, really, actual window-and-head-breaking blackshirt street thugs, calling everyone else "fascist", are being funded by an actual National Socialist collaborator. Nobody wants to know....
And some people don't want anyone to know.
All the masks are coming off....
While the Lairds of Fairfax keep f***ing us in the a**.
And Quislings too. I unsubscribed from Hickok45's channel because he rambled interminably. Looks like I won't be going back.
Michael G. sends a cheerful anniversary.
Blogbrother SMLE Fan weighs in on the Bubba-vs.-gubmint argument.
Personal air transport. Working on it.
So, yeah, I really am surrounded by people who say out loud that they want to murder me. For the color of my skin and my respect for the Constitution.
Massive Racist Vote Fraud-fatigue... no one cares. "The worst thing about living in the declining era of a great civilization... is knowing that you are."
Back here I predicted the sale of watermelons would be prohibited, because "racism". ALMOST THERE. You watch, some white folks having a picnic and eating some watermelon are gonna get knifed in front of their kids for "Sudden Social Justice".
I wrote "government supplies rotting in warehouses, government funds evaporating under corruption and graft, the needy never getting a fraction of it" AND I WAS RIGHT, AGAIN.
Speaking of really believing their own delusions....
Pointed Observation o' the Day.
THIS... is CNN staggeringly-willful ignorance. And they expect everyone else to be even more ignorant. "There are plenty of authoritative resources reporters can consult with, provided gun experts don‘t get sick and tired of being misrepresented and refuse to give them the time of day."
But instead, there really is a concerted and deliberate and boasted-of effort to misinform everyone about everything.
To which dot connect, "There are many changes in possible scenarios that come with this revelation, and many questions."
People who hate me and want me to die.
For the color of my skin.
Constitutional Carry stalling in Michigan. Smack 'em upside the phones and emails.
Would you trust your life to a bridge or airplane or piece of medical equipment built by the students of these people?
The next time someone tells you they hate Trump....
In both World Wars, Canadian troops gave superior service, sometimes being the only units to achieve their objectives. Not anymore.
WE'VE TRIED IT THEIR WAY AND IT NEVER WORKS.
IT WAS A "GUN-FREE ZONE". LIKE WE'VE BEEN TELLING YOU FOR YEARS.
Ground regained in Michigan and as always, 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.
Last month Colion Noir posted this video of Things We Have All Seen At The Range. Questions have been raised as to NSSF's ideological purity, but they've recently posted a safety-and-etiquette video I have no great objections to. Together, I feel they make good preparation for new shooters.
Cure for leukemia. Michael G. sends, working on it.
The next time you see a car with a Hillary or Obama sticker, remember they're on the side of serial rapists and against any woman who wants to be truly independent.
"You’re blaming the wrong side."
No wonder they're in favor of unrestricted immigration.
Speaking of the Usurper, "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan." "Period!"
Go ahead, shut down the NFL. I really won't care.
Southern Preposterous Lies Center... I've actually seen their operatives, wearing SPLC t-shirts and clutching clipboards, on streetcorners in this horrible enemy-occupied city in which I've been trapped for a quarter-century. I really am surrounded by people who hate me and want me to die.
To which dot connect staggeringly-ignorant bigotry. "Somehow a gun website being pro-gun and protecting the rights of its audience is a surprise to him."
Meanwhile, the Lairds of Fairfax shoot themselves in our feet.
Aaaand RINO backstabbing.
I no longer regret never having served in the military.
Speaking of a deliberate and concerted effort to infiltrate and destroy every American institution....
Continuing Second Front action in New York-of-all-places. 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.
A hundred competitors to put NA$A completely out of business and get us off this rock before it kills us all. FASTER. PLEASE.
In my fictional future history I described an emergency atmospheric entry. The ideas I used were not new.
Codrea examines the Lairds of Fairfax, and not for the first time.
Which segues to RINO backstabbing in Minnesota.
And then this happens. Our backs are running out of room for all the knives.
Fourteen and a half years ago I made this cartoon:
And I was right, again.
White Republican NRA member with concealed-carry permit shoots Texas Tech University copWRONG. IN EVERY WAY. AGAIN. But the psychotic bigots insist.
To which dot connect, Angry Christian Coffee Shop Owner Doubles Down on His Discrimination of HomosexualsOH. WAIT.
Speaking of psychotic bigots....
Immigrants. Contributing More Immigrants to Society.
But pointing that out
It's not paranoia if they really are out to get you. In support of which, MidWestReader sends: "Found on AR15.com. Context of the quote was questions about Facebook and privacy:"
"i spent 4 days locked in a room with kirby plessus of PEN teaching us that stuff. some of the techniques used are really not secret but also not really common knowledge.
"in a nut shell the url address bar can be used as a command line search tool for FB and most other social network sites once you have the fb identifier you can cross reference that through regular searches on and off fb for tie in's to pretty much everything including financial information and pretty much anything else. i am marginal at best on the searches but i watched her do stuff that honestly creeped me the f*** out.
"for example we started a local search within 2 miles of our location looking for 'kush'. within 20 min we had a target and knew location, video they were streaming live on another site, their complete movement history for the last 30 days and all of their close friends and associates. we had also located the exact spot in a walmart parking lot where they were buying their dope. twice a week like clock work late night same corner of a parking lot for 10-15 min. we also knew where they banked, insurance company, and a lot of other public info. we had connections to twitter, snapchat, periscope and several other sites. there is nothing there that is not generally publicly available it simply makes it MUCH easier and faster to compile and profile.
"oh yea... NOTHING is private. with the right search parameter i can see your 'private' posts. messages we could not see but anything on your wall is fair game private or not.
"someone asked 'how they get away with it' when you install or create an account you accept a user agreement that gives them that access. once they have the data you have lost the rights to it.
"i always joked about fb is the devil... i was wrong, it's not a joke. Mark Zukerberg is in fact satan and fb is much worse than most people grasp."
"Kirby Plessas is this guy. Yet another reason, I guess, to avoid social media. Never forget that this is what Mark Zuckerberg thinks of his customers.
"Always be careful what you say online, and to whom. They're always watching. The Panopticon eye of the State never blinks."
And as if on cue Facebook outsources "moderators" to countries under Sharia. Michael G. asks, "What could possibly go wrong?" Wasn't I just asking why patriots and conservatives get their FB and YT feeds killed, while content calling for the enslavement of women and the murder of Jews and Christians stays up?
And as if on cue, this is why I've been duplicating my YouTube presence on Vidme.
An important increment in Michigan. The only reason to register is to confiscate.
White House petition to oppose bump-stock ban. Remember there's someone in that House who doesn't hate America.
It's still not the Antifa Navy running supplies to Puerto Rico.
What have you done for the Cause?
"Our poor – and mind you, we have little or no abject poverty in the U.S., only relative poverty – have cell phones, game consoles, laptop computers and microwave ovens. But for some reason, they expect the taxpayers to subsidize an elective medical product that costs less than a weekly cup of coffee at Starbucks." Aaaand I may have just lost my parking-cars-for-minimum-wage job. Which was being taxed for massive EBT fraud to buy all those things for people who won't work.
The next time you overhear sheeple talking about how cool that latest movie was....
The next time some psychotic bigot rants about Russia hacking the election....
Hey remember how George Orwell wrote that book Nineteen Eighty-Four and it had Thought Police who put people in jail for things they said? That was just a story... RIGHT?
So Islamic terrorists say hurricanes are Trump's fault and an obscenely-overpaid Hollywood imbecile agrees with them and now the governor of Occupied California goes in a similar direction, very deliberately ignoring his own blatant incompetence and mismanagement.
"Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."
Michael G. sends even more of the concerted and deliberate effort to misinform everyone about everything. Connect this dot to that Ammoland article the other day about revising Confederate history. On which topic I have also pondered.
And then burn the colleges.
The death of Hollywood. Backlash. Which I have also pondered.
Not unrelated, the next time you see a car with one of those "I'm with [Hillary logo] Her" stickers....
HEY REMEMBER WHEN SEGREGATION WAS BAD?
Real Socialism! Never Been Tried!
What "law" would you not enforce?
What order would you not obey?
What have you done for our veterans?
The men who sleep in mud and get shot at so the rest of us don't have to?
Someone to reelect in Kentucky. In which state there have been efforts toward Constitutional Carry.
Constant acceleration is a staple of hard science fiction, because those numbers really add up, and make stories work. I did some figuring on this twenty-odd years ago, when I first started writing my own fictional future history - NA$A takes three days to get from here to Luna, but if an engine existed which could boost continuously at one g, it would be about four hours - or a week to Mars, instead of a year. Blogbrother SMLE Fan observes, working on it. Even a tiny push, applied constantly, adds up to fasterthananyonehasevergonebefore.
Then he finds some panzer pr0n.
I would like to state for the record that I have never yet suffered M1 Thumb.
YET. ANOTHER. FAKE HATE CRIME. EXPLAIN IN SMALL WORDS HOW THAT MAKES ME "RACIST". And don't go to college, where actual racists really are out to get white people. For the color of their skin.
To which dot connect "...[P]lanning to leave [California] because they’re terrified of saying a positive word about Donald Trump for fear of having their heads smashed in with bike locks."
Speaking of fake crimes and real hate, a reasonable person has to wonder.
There's still nothing holding it up.
And it will all come crashing down.
See also FIFTEEN DOLLARS AN HOUR! And yes, all the prices keep going up since Oregon raised its at-government-gunpoint minimum wage.
Not unrelated, Sarah Hoyt invokes the Prophet Heinlein again. And I happen to have re-read both Citizen of the Galaxy and Friday a few moons ago. Don't miss the comments on this one, Heinlein really dug into this and many other important topics.
A couple months ago I asked, "You ever notice how 'feminists', who talk about 'empowering' women, can't stand the idea of a woman using a gun to defend herself from a rapist?"
And then they make death threats against the people advocating a woman's right to self-defense. Blissfully blind to the irony of proving their opponents' point.
Think about that.
I also said it's not Republican NRA members slaughtering hundreds of each other in the cities.
Which segues to:
WHY DID YOU BECOME A COP?
Years ago I wrote "Private charity has always been more efficient than government anyway." And I was right, again.
Thirty damn years I've been buying lottery tickets and then this happens. You ever get that feeling the game really is rigged? From the top down?
Codrea continues examining demographic warfare, RINO backstabbing, and candidate grading. Are you a "low-information voter"?
Really. RINO backstabbing.
Meanwhile on campus, that concerted and deliberate effort to misinform everyone about everything is working.
Yeah, they're all like that. Remember this the next time someone tells you how awesome that latest movie was.
Can't we just go back to the M1 Garand? No, of course not.
Domestic terrorist attacks against historians now.
And Enemies Foreign also.
They really are out to get all of us. Click a f***ing mouse.
The next time you see a car with an NFL decal....
Desert Hermit Joel has the Really Believing Their Own Delusions o' the Day.
Also see, "Good grief. They're serious."
And, eee-vill gun rays casting dominion over the soooouls of men.
Yeah, I gotta say, it's not Republican NRA members doing this stuff either. It's not "racist" if it's true.
Less guns. More crime. Every time.
It will all come crashing down....
Another Quisling? Throwing his own customers under the bus? (And as for "what brand of AR should I get", just build your own. Exactly the way you want it. Instructions are all over YouTube, at least for the moment.)
By which is meant, "You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police. Yet in their hearts there is unspoken – unspeakable! – fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts! Words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home, all the more powerful because they are forbidden. These terrify them. A little mouse – a little tiny mouse! – of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic." - Sir Winston Churchill
By which is meant, "The internet has made it extremely difficult to spread fake news." Which is why some people want Obamacare for the internet.
Michael G. sends an awakening in Austria.
A hundred competitors to put NA$A completely out of business. Faster, please. Shoulda been a Trump Tower hotel-casino-resort in Luna City thirty damn years ago.
It's still not the Antifa navy, nor tax-eating FEMA bureaucrats neither.
In addition to treason, serial rape, looting, vandalism, arson, and murder are excused as "tolerance" and "diversity" but behaving like civilized human beings is "racist". Getting tired of being called a "racist" by racists.
Nor is it paranoia if there really is a concerted and deliberate effort to demonize and dehumanize me and all my friends. Which we have seen before.
There really is a slope and it really is slippery.
Remember, peasant, you're not paying "your" "fair" "share".
Which segues to, years ago I wrote "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.
And remember, peasant, "death panels" are a paranoid fantasy that will never happen.
Even more RINO backstabbing. Aaaaand buying panic, again.
Hey remember all those Republican NRA members who made death threats against Hillary Clinton and Charles Schumer and Diane Feinstein and Sarah Brady? ME NEITHER.
What "law" would you not enforce?
What order would you not obey?
To keep your pension?
But prohibition will always fail. And there's always another way.
Another awakening, in the Czech Republic. Which is also known for making really good firearms. I have an 80-odd-year-old VZ24 '98 Mauser clone which I wouldn't be too reluctant to take into battle.
An important Senate race in Alabama.
Okay, so, I'm poor as usual, and presently only marginally employed, but that doesn't stop me pondering the long-stalled Rapunzel project, my plan to build a precision AR long rifle. Why does a barrel cost so much less than a free-float tube? Obviously I'm (virtual-window-)shopping around for better prices but I want Rapunzel to be special and unique, meaning not just any old parts. (The color is important too. This particular tube is advertised as matching Magpul OD Green, in which hue I've already spent a lot of money on furniture.) And none of that cheese-grater stuff, I tell ya. A short rail at 12-o'-clock for a backup front sight, another at 6-o'-clock for the bipod, and a sling attachment somewhere. I don't need or want fifteen kilometers of Picatinny or Mlok or Keymod, nor sixteen kilograms of battery-dependent junk hanging off the weapon.
ON THIS DAY
Hey remember when the psychotics were pushing those unisex bathrooms and we predicted there would be sexual assaults and predation against children? Remember how we were called paranoid hateful bigots?
Hey remember how the National Socialists used doctors as agents of the state? That could never happen again... RIGHT?
Hey remember when all those college Republicans invaded and disrupted all those leftist-activist meetingsME NEITHER.
Remember, peasant, only the government should be providing health care!
Virginia Republican candidate omits black running mate from campaign flyersOH. WAIT. "Ah. Yes. Zero tolerance towards racism -- except when a Democrat is discriminating against African Americans. Then it's suddenly an honest mistake that does not reflect badly on the rest of the party, or even on the racist Democrat himself."
What if it really isn't a paranoid conspiracy theory?
RINO backstabbing, Chapter MMMMMCCXXXVI.
And the Lairds of Fairfax too.
Which segues to Immigrants Contributing Arson, Property Destruction, and Murder to Society.
NA$A can't do this. Government can't do this at ten times the price.
Eric Holder and Barack Hussein Obama deliberately arranged for weapons to be sent to Mexico, to be used by drug gangs, to murder innocent people, to justify further restrictions on our natural human rights. "On that hypothesis everything now makes sense."
Immigrants Contributing to Society and Society Inviting More Immigrants. Battered-Wife Syndrome on a continental scale.
Go to college, get into soul-crushing debt, and get discriminated against for the color of your skin or the content of your character.
Speaking of brainwashing, how does this not qualify as child abuse?
On the other end of the equation, still not Republican NRA members.
While you wait for the next exciting episode of that hit TV series....
In Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, doublethink was described as the ability to hold two contradictory thoughts in one mind at the same time. So, not dressing like a slut is "sexist" and not covering every inch of female flesh is "Islamophobic".
I got yer "real socialism" right here.
I can't believe I haven't seen this phrase used yet - am I the first? Toxic masculinity feminism.
Enemy action in Minnesota and Canada.
Aaaand RINO backstabbing. And the Lairds of Fairfax as usual.
There's no anti-communist
like an ex-communist:
"We're totally going back." (Free Luna!)
It's the Jeffersonian and SMLE Fan Skype Show, Viking Berserker Kitteh Edition!

The welfare system, illustrated. The Founders warned us.
Michael G. sends the unconquerable divide. The Other Side really is completely disconnected from reality. (And as a matter of fact, in my fictional future history, they really do sell guns at the airport.)
Speaking of psychoses, I wrote "Eventually the money ran out. The government printed more but the whole world knew it was worthless. The whole system collapsed."
"War on Science"-fatigue.... I'm reminded California also declared aloe vera a carcinogen a while back. Lemme guess, nitrogen will be next on the list. And for gods' sakes don't tell them about dihydrogen monoxide!
There is a difference between people who cannot defend themselves and people who will not defend themselves. The first are objects of pity - the second, of revulsion. Think about the kind of people who would not lift a weapon to defend their own children and don't want you to either. This is what I mean by 'toxic feminism'.
Their way doesn't work.
GENOCIDE IS NOT HYPERBOLE.
Okay, so, the NFL is self-destructing. Fine, I never liked football anyway. Never cared for basketball either.
Michael G. sends another competitor to put NA$A completely out of business. Unfortunately this one is funded by zillionaire anti-self-defense pervert Jeff Bezos, but we can hope for more competitors to put him out of business too.
I have had opportunity to view episodes 1-6 of Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2202, and... I'm afraid they lack the immediately-grabbing pacing of 2199, spending perhaps too much time on the mecha-pr0n, which is a subset of fan service. Likewise it... feels like the excellent soundtrack, completely re-created from the 1974 original, is being applied with... less artistic-and-timing skill than in 2199. (Okay the sixth episode picked up some.) There is a different director credited for the series. Different writers and producers too. The 1978 original of the second series, syndicated in America as Star Blazers, had some of the most powerful moments in visual entertainment - very much a serious adult story, masquerading as a kids' cartoon. I hope it course-corrects, but episodes 7-10 (of 26) are in Japanese theaters now and it may be months before I have a chance to see them. I dunno, maybe my expectations were too high, after 2199's enormously superior performance. Perhaps it gets better on re-watch.
Aahhhh, I see David Drake will be releasing a new Leary/Mundy/RCN novel, Though Hell Should Bar the Way, next spring. The RCN series is one of many influences on my own work.
Moral equivalence of different cultures....
To which dot connect Immigrants Contributing to Society....
Like I said, it's still not Republican NRA members....
Recently the Czech Republic at least partly recognized a right to keep and bear arms - arguably the first such in Europe in centuries. Michael G. sends more awakening.
Oh hey! Today is my and FluffyTux's fourth anniversary! I stole mai kitteh fair and square.
IndieGoGo suspends Muslim charity's account, returns all fundsOH. WAIT.
College professor complains that female students don't feel oppressed enough. Toxic feminism.
College professor openly opposes free speech. Well we knew that one already....
Aaaaaand it's not paranoia if they really are out to get you. Now think about the kind of people who oppose campus carry.
The next time someone suggests you spend eight or ten or fifty bucks at the movie theater....
Preaching to the choir in an echo chamber... what have you done for the Cause?
Still not Republican NRA members....
Immigrants! Contributing! To Society!
Gun-Control Success Story! 'Meanwhile, British police forces pursue the posters of “offensive” comments online, with a reported 3,395 arrests KIDNAPPINGS AND ROBBERIES UNDER COLOR OF "LAW" for social media use in one year.'
Badass o' the Day.
Prohibition FAIL, Chapter MMMMMCCXL. And there's always another way.
The biggest "f*** you" in American electoral history.
Best. Comeback. Ever.
Athiest activist claims First Amendment is irrelevant to church debateOH. WAIT. Well, we know the same people don't like the First Amendment either.... And of course, I have my own thoughts.
They really believe "law" is whatever they feel like. (Timely Visual Aid.)
And as if on cue. There really is a concerted and deliberate effort to misinform everyone about everything.
By which I also mean, "Increase the visibility of Muslim men and women in your general reporting... Take care not to further stigmatise terms such as 'Muslim' or 'Islam' by associating them with particular acts... Don't allow extremists' claims about acting 'in the name of Islam' to stand unchallenged. Highlight... the diversity of Muslim communities.... Not even Orwell could have made that up."
Which segues to hey what if Muslim terrorists really are coming through our wide-open southern border so they can murder innocent human beings? Think about this the next time someone calls Trump's Wall "racist".
Which segues to Immigrants Contributing to Society.
Fake Hate Crime, Chapter MMMMMCCLXI. If America is such a racist place, if blacks are under such constant oppression by racism, why do they have to manufacture these incidents?
Which segues to, not for the first time I ask, if actual white supremacists were writing scripts for this behavior to justify racial backlash as legitimate self-defense, how would it be different?
And now math and science are racist. Bet your life on a bridge or airplane or piece of medical equipment designed and built by those students.
More backstabbing from Fairfax....
Constitutional Carry vote imminent in Wisconsin.
How often do you hear about one of Our Kind going over to Their Side?
The Winchester Model 1895 lever-action rifle, designed by John Moses Browning, was Teddy Roosevelt's favorite, and a large part of its original production went to the forces of the Russian Tsar. Here is your techno-historical nerdery o' the day.
Just starting David Drake's Starliner, an apparent standalone which I haven't read before (though the FTL drive bears some similarities to his RCN universe); when, at hold at the library, I receive in dead-tree this collection of military-SF/space-opera, so I'll be reading that instead. ...Eeeeexcept a fellow nerd graciously provided me with an ecopy so I can get them both on my cheap prepaid smartphone so I don't have to haul around my nearly-irreplaceable laptop, or a two-kilogram chunk of dead tree, which I can now return to the library long before it's due. What a wonderful modern age we live in.
Tell me again how the individual-right interpretation of the Second Amendment is a recent construct which has no precedent.
Listen, all you psychopathic clinically-paranoid LGBTWTFBBQ bigots, it's not Republican NRA members plotting to round you all up for extermination. We're too busy working for a living, to be taxed, to keep your EBT cards filled. You hate-filled venom-spewing parasites. And, Authorized Journalism: "In the wake of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, another LGBT gun club was formed: Pink Pistols." Which was actually founded around 2000, and whose icon and website have been linked on my front page since November 2001, going by the datestamp on the image file, nine months before I even started blogging. I would have expected better from "conservative" media.
Speaking of rounding people up for extermination. The left's genocide-fantasies are neither hyperbole nor paranoia. Or are we not to take them at their own loudly-proclaimed word?
Speaking of media and conservatives, "Emily Gaudette, writing for Newsweek [they still exist?], believes that the gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety, should seek out celebrities that conservatives pay attention to." I don't think there are any.
Speaking of censorship and discrimination, remember when some dimbulb said something like "nobody is losing their job over their politics"? I have lost jobs over politics. Now I'm down to parking cars and picking up cigarette butts for minimum wage.... "...[I]t is proof that they are less interested in producing quality content than they are in pursuing approval from social justice warriors."
And for the record, all that Trump-Russia-Collusion nonsense was fabricated on orders from the Clintons and the Democrat Party.
"Neither the school nor district will confirm if the teacher faces any disciplinary action" for threatening to assassinate the President of the United States of America as a grade-school assignment.
But yeah, go ahead and take on that soul-crushing student loan debt.
RINO backstabbing, Chapter MMMMMCCLXII.
And the backstabbing from the Lairds of Fairfax goes way back.
A Champion of the Cause lives on.
David Drake's Starliner is rich with detail and flavor and depth, bringing to life the universe he created and the worlds and cultures he filled it with. I once wrote that in a Rudyard Kipling story, the reader could taste the dust and smell the horses. Drake's right up there with him - and this one was published a quarter-century ago. Really looking forward to that next RCN novel.
"Treason against the United States shall consist only in
levying War against them,
or in adhering
to their Enemies,
giving them Aid and Comfort."
And speaking of Democrats, a United States Senator, who has already lied about her ethnicity, now is willing to smear the memory of a dead, disabled friend in order to win votes and prop up her feminist image.
They really believe their own lies and want to force everyone else to believe them at the point of a government gun.
But they call us "paranoid".
Not even breakfast cereal is free of the poison.
Real Socialism! Every Time!
Under Sharia law, rape victims get stoned to death, and how is show business any different?
Speaking of the moral equivalence of different cultures, Michael G. sends, "Plague outbreak in east Africa. And it's the pneumonic kind, too. But I'm sure the honest and efficient governments of the region, backed up by the United Nations, will bring it all under control and not let it spread to the rest of the world. Where were those instructions for making a salt impregnated breathing mask to kill airborne infections?" But remember, peasant, restricting immigration is "racist".
Which segues to, if actual white supremacists were writing scripts for black people's behavior to justify racial backlash as legitimate self-defense, how would that be different from what really happens in the real world? AND HOW DOES THAT MAKE ME "RACIST"?
Years ago I wrote, Encountering Ralph in the mess section, Sol asked, “So why do Alran look so much like Humans?”
“Dammit, Sol,” Ralph answered calmly, “I'm a doctor, not a xenopaleontologist.” Danner cocked an eyebrow. Ralph looked up from his 'puter's display and grinned. “Pre-Escape entertainment reference. I'll explain sometime.”
The ship's doctor looked back to his display. “But that's a really good question. Their DNA, or I should say the stuff we think they're using in its place, is nowhere close to Human. Eyani are more like us, in a biochemical sense. Maybe a dozen-billion years ago they and we sprung from the same batch of microbes, but not the Alran...."
Michael G. observes, in the private sector, "Bad behavior has consequences. In college it can get you a full time job."
Aaaand violent genocidal psychosis.
Aaaand blatant racism and thought police.
And then this happens. Explain in small words how I'm the "racist" one. Aaaaand Democrats have been mayors of that city for eighty-three years. So naturally it's all Trump's fault.
And then they act surprised when this happens in direct response to being targeted for the color of one's skin.
Burn the government schools all over the world. Japan has never been a free country.
If ever you see a pickup truck with an NRA sticker and an NFL decal in the same rear window.... "The 49ers are partnering with several California police unions and organizations in this effort to ban these items" but tell me for the thousandth time how "rank-and-file law enforcement supports the Second Amendment".
As if we needed more reasons to never attend any major sporting event or large public gathering.
(To include movie theaters.)
An increment in Philadelphia. Which is another place run by anti-self-defense perverts for more than half a century.
The absolutist position, explained.
Not unrelated, in the bigger picture, this news item reminds me that "I would rather be exposed to the inconveniencies attending too much liberty than those attending too small a degree of it", and, "...[T]he boisterous sea of liberty is never without a wave."
Make your own.
Giant Flaming Meteor and/or The Big One and/or Enormous Tsunami obliterating Hollywood? Wouldn't bother me a lot.
Youtube Censorship, Chapter MMMMMCCLXV.
Not unrelated, the Prophet Kipling warned us of this sort of thing. But go ahead, set the precedent.
You know what I have planned for next weekend? Staying home with my AR and a stack of loaded magazines. I wonder what the police have planned?
For those of you who are still comfortable with filling out that Form 4473, it seems factory ARs have broken the $400 barrier.

So I'm listening to the show while lurking in the chatroom and the radio station I'm streaming - KFRM in Kansas - has the same Public Service Announcement over and over again, about kids dropping out of school. Talking about how a student drops out every twenty seconds. The proposed solution is "mentoring" and tutoring and volunteering through the United Way. It strikes me that, as usual, there is a firm grasp on the wrong end of the equation. If the schools run by the government-and-teachers-union as-though-there's-a-difference are driving so many students away, maybe something's wrong with the schools and not the students. But, like the question of who is slaughtering hundreds of each other every year in Chicago or Baltimore or Detroit or Philadelphia or the District of Columbia, nobody wants to talk about that.
Which segues to what you're getting for that soul-crushing student loan debt.
To which dot connect, it's not paranoia if they really are saying out loud in so many words that they want to send us to concentration camps.
But they call us "Nazis".
I truly hope this November 4th thing turns into heaps of dead Antifa and dead cops. I'm seeing little to no moral difference between them. If they wipe each other out maybe the decent human beings can finally go back to work without being robbed and murdered by both sides at once.
Codrea raises even more questions about the ideological purity of the National Rifle Association.
The kind of people who don't want you able to defend yourself or your children are the same people who want to brutally assault you and rape your children.
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "France faces acute butter shortage due to (what else) government meddling. Note that the EU maintained strict production quotas on dairy products until 2015 and that in socialist France, supermarkets are either not allowed to or won’t raise prices more than once a year. The end result is that dairy producers find it more profitable to sell butter (which is in high demand) to countries that don’t have fixed prices (i.e., other than France), and hence no more croissants for the French. And of course the only reason this didn’t happen before was because of artificial trade caps and quotas imposed by the EU." But tell me again, and again, and again, how "real socialism has never been tried."
Muslim student reprimanded for criticizing gay rightsOH. WAIT.
And then this inconveniently-for-them happens.
Can't trust anything anymore....
WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO LEAVING PEOPLE THE F*** ALONE?
SPACEX DOES IT AGAIN FOR THE ELEBENTEENTH TIME. Government can't do that at ten times the price.
As if on cue, let's get off this rock before it kills us all.
Prohibition FAIL pith helmet sold separately. And there's always another way.
The kind of immigrant I want contributing to my society.
In the place where Britain used to be,
And that is called paying the Dane-geld;
But we’ve proved it again and again,
That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld
You never get rid of the Dane.
This NFL thing... how long until knife fights break out in the locker rooms, or even right there on the field with the cameras and the clock running? Not that I would care.
"...[U]rging young people to violate the First Amendment rights of campus speakers by using techniques of violence and vandalism." Go ahead. Change those rules of engagement.
As if there weren't quite enough of that going around already. And which party, with their race-baiting welfare system, has been running Baltimore for how many decades?
You've heard the sayings, "Couldn't lead troops into a brothel", or "If the government were in charge of the Sahara, in five years there'd be a shortage of sand"? Michael G. sends proof.
Yesterday I said, the kind of people who don't want you able to defend yourself are the same people who want to rape your children. In. Their. Own. Words.
Speaking also of that kind, "All things considered, it’s tough to feel any sympathy for the guy."
GENOCIDE IS NOT HYPERBOLE IN THEIR OWN WORDS.
Aaaaaand Immigrants Contributing to Society. Explain in small words how this is Trump's fault, or the NRA's, or mine. And of course if any of this Islamic terrorist's victims had tried to stop him or defend themselves, they'd be facing criminal charges....
Constitutional Carry action in Indiana and Michigan. Phones and emails.
