RIFLEMAN'S JOURNAL - JANUARY 2018
The World Sucks
On campus, Michael G. sends, "UC Davis teaches another useless course. But at least this one they are charging what it's worth."
Speaking of soul-crushing debt....
...Don't Go to College, where the professors expect you to start a race war for them.
Do they really want racial backlash? Because that's how you get racial backlash.
Hey remember when anyone who objected to unisex bathrooms was labeled "sexist"?
And how anyone who objects to illegal immigration is "racist"?
And how anyone who said incremental infringements were a slippery slope was called "paranoid"?
In Lighter News
Hey, what if Trump really is draining the swamp? “Morale has never been lower,” president of the National Treasury Employees Union Tony Reardon told the Post. “Government is making itself a lot less attractive as an employer.” YOU SAY THAT LIKE IT'S A BAD THING.
FIFTEEN DOLLARS AN HOUR! WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?
OPEN BORDERS! WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?
By which I mean MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD and staggering ignorance.
To which dot connect YouTube double standards.
To which dot connect, yeah, there really is a conspiracy to frame President Donald Trump for crimes he did not commit.
Aaaaaand Quisling Fudds.
'“...[C]ommon sense gun safety law proponents” would rather see their countrymen murdered by the scores than armed.'
In Ayn Rand's novel Atlas Shrugged - which I have actually read - the government issued Directive 10-289, forcing businesses to remain in operation and prohibiting companies from leaving economic death-spiral states for less-insane ones. But that was just a story... RIGHT?
"...Trump... ran what was, in essence, the only successful third-party candidacy in the long history of our Republic since, perhaps, Lincoln." We know he's not perfect. We're also pretty sure he's not evil. I'll vote for him again in 2020. ...If we both haven't been murdered by then....
Michael G. sends: "National Review discovers you don't need to give up 4th amendment for safety. NYC crime is down at the same time 'Stop and Frisk' was ended. NR admits the evidence proves they were wrong." Now if we can only get the news through the steroid-addled skulls of the costumed sociopaths doing the kidnapping-and-assaulting.... (Codrea has perspective.)
Constitutional Carry action in Indiana. (Crappy editing in the article, sigh, illiterate retards running the newspapers....)
There has been talk of some kind of link between diabetes and Alzheimer's. The cures could be linked too.
I understood this reference.
Twelve-hour days now,
parking cars in severe windchill for minimum wage,
and FluffyTux complaining about how long the lap has been absent.
DON'T GO TO COLLEGE
Where they really do hate us for the color of our skin. But they call us "racist".
Antifa or Islam? What's the difference?
Hey remember how leftists are such great supporters and defenders of women?
Just last month I was commenting on the divide between urban and rural populations and cultures. Michael G. sends more about this horrible place.
I hate this place so much....
The latte-sipping elitists really don't see us as human beings. When one of us objects to their decrees, it's like a piece of furniture grew fangs.
Codrea suggests some Resolutions.
Still arguing about Constitutional Carry in Arkansas.
I've encountered one or two of these at the shows, but I don't recall ever seeing one with the full kit like this.
SHUT UP WESLEY
Blurry floofy uberkitteh pic
Don't Go to College, because it's full of illiterate retards.
Government-run "health" "care"! What could possibly go wrong?
Protecting wildlife from human encroachment! What could possibly go wrong?
Lowering standards to guarantee equality of outcome! WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?
"How can you claim to represent women's rights when you're genuflecting to a symbol of oppression for women across an entire continent?"
And how can you claim to represent "the people" when you hate most of them for the color of their skin?
Years ago I made this meme. Michael G. now sends: "Believers in 'science' set out to demonstrate evolution in action. Although when it does bite them in the ass, no doubt they will blame it on us who pay attention to the facts and either use treated water, or treat it ourselves. Just like when they got e-coli from their manure fertilized 'organic' spinach it was somehow the fault of us who chose 'non-organic' chemically fertilized spinach."
For the first time in fourteen years, America is leading the conquest of space. And it's not tax-eating NA$A bureaucrats doing it.
They say "California could secede" like it's a bad thing. Note the mention of the State of Jefferson. A member of that movement often shows up in the Sunday chatroom.
Considering only a couple of these mass shootings haven't occurred in places where the government has made the victims defenseless for the monsters' convenience, here's an idea whose time has come: “If you create a pretend gun-free zone, you’re liable for any harm it causes.”
It's been said that the greatest pleasure in life
is rolling over and going back to sleep.
Unless you can't sleep anyway because
you're probably out of work again.
"Cutting down hours for temps", I was told.
Not that I was happy or excited about parking cars
in the rain and the dark AND THE WIND for minimum wage,
from six in the morning until ten or eleven at night....
If you've been reading this journal for any length of time, you'll have learned that I'm an absolutist on the preexisting natural human right to keep and bear arms. So is Herschel Smith, who observes that some people supposedly on our side aren't.
Michael G. sends "Global" "Warming" and Trump Derangement Syndrome.
See also "Green" "Energy".
And without the sarcastic quote marks: Discrimination.
Just the other day I was saying, and far from the first time, how they don't see us as human. Now Michael G. observes, "'You're not human if you can't communicate. I'm listening to this and thinking that when we try to communicate with them they do the lalala can't hear you routine, then say we have the failure to communicate. So I guess they really mean if we are physically unable to stop them from killing us then we aren't human and they are entitled, even obligated, to kill us."
Don't Go to College, which are Jew-hating dictatorships.
And where freedom of thought is viewed as evil.
But they call us "Nazis".
And psychotic liars.
Linux is looking better all the time....
The entertainment industry continues to self-destruct. Another thing - "whitewashing" is the use of caucasian actors to portray non-white characters. More of the opposite is happening, casting "actors of color" in the director's own dirty words primarily for the sake of their skin color. And they really believe they're "fighting racism" by engaging in actual blatant racism.
Hm, a bit of anti-prohibition sense in Pennsylvania. Consider the alternative, and think about the kind of costumed sociopaths who unquestioningly enforce such "laws".
Adding Black Guns Matter to my front and links pages.
It's still not Republican NRA members causing all that violent crime and taking away OUR guns won't stop it. It could be an opportunity though....
Speaking of disconnects from reality, way back here I was already observing how the ivory-tower beltway elitists were sociopaths who cannot recognize us as human beings. Michael G. now sends: "HuffPo asks 'Why Black Americans own guns?' And then assert Americans want to keep Blacks unarmed. Start from stupid premises, ask stupid questions."
"Sorry, Venkman, I'm terrified indoctrinated beyond the capacity for rational thought."
From Michael G.: "Finally, I asked the question that burned in my mind: Why, if they hated the US so much, did they not they go back to their beloved home country? What if all their expenses were covered, such as plane tickets to their native land? Instead of the earlier lengthy explanations, the general response was evasive. Some even remained perfectly silent or refused to answer." All those handouts for them, while we work until we die, to pay the taxes they live on.
But tell me again how they contribute to society....
Show and chat every Sunday 1100 Pacific Time.
Stand-Your-Ground action in Idaho, which already has Constitutional Carry for state residents. Again I ask, what pervert thought up the "duty to retreat"?
New Hampshire has Constitutional Carry but I don't want to move there.
Regeneration is a trope in science fiction. Getting there.
It's the Jeffersonian and SMLE Fan Skype Show, Freedom of Thought Edition!
Jeffersonian, 9:47 AM: new Girls und Panzer manga

Jeffersonian, 10:10 AM: which Codrea has observed in the place where Britain used to be
Jeffersonian, 10:10 AM: people meekly accepting airgun bans and glass-bottle prohibition in pubs
SMLE Fan, 10:10 AM: I mean, can you even think about a Japanese Bull Halsey? No, and neither could the IJN
SMLE Fan, 10:11 AM: are you aware of a YouTuber named Count Dankula? He made a vid some two years back in which he taught his GF's pug to do a nazi salute just to piss her off, and he's now on trial for various badthink. He very well might end up in jail
Which segues to Immigrants Contributing to Society....
So for years and years I struggle to make rent in an antique dump with not a single right-angle left in it, and then this horrible place spends my taxes on luxury homes for bums who won't work. "...[W]ho wants to be a taxpayer when they can live better on the dole with 'free' luxury condos?"
One of the "Elves" in the Sunday chatroom reports: "I was at the Voice of the People Rally at the Sacramento Kapital yesterday manning the NRA table:
"Had a decent turnout. Several III% groups as well:
"About 80 of us went to Joe's Crab Shack and took over the place. We put up a Trump Flag. We were told to take in down. It went down briefly and then we put it right back up. 80 dinners with lots of $$$$$$ ready to walk out. They never said another word about it."
In Canada, "For writing and warning about political Islam, I was terminated as a director at the federal government's Canadian Race Relations Foundation (CRRF), an agency usually at arms-length from the federal government."
Aldous Huxley's novel Brave New World postulated a totalitarian society where individuality was all but destroyed and all people were interchangeable. But that was just a story... RIGHT?
Again I ask, would you trust a bridge, or aircraft, or piece of medical equipment, designed, built or operated by these gibbering lunatics? They want you to. At the point of a government gun.
On campus, Michael G. sends, Lawsuit against Oberlin to proceed, Judge denies motion to partially dismiss. 'If Oberlin were smart, it would cut its loses and accept fighting with a local bakery is a no-win situation. Since the original dispute erupted during the term of the previous Oberlin president, a settlement could be written off as cleaning up someone else’s prior mess. But I don’t expect that to happen, considering that doing the right thing vis-a-vis the bakery likely would result is protests on campus by social justice activists against the administration."
Which segues to the ongoing war against free speech.
Clicking through, I'm reminded how another of my favorite authors, Tom Kratman, stated that if he ever won a Hugo, he'd spend the rest of his life wondering what he did wrong.
Court action in Occupied California.
Exactly what we predicted would happen in Occupied Australia.
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "I’m not deeply invested in British or EU politics, but I wouldn’t shed many tears for the EU if it went to bits, and I think that Brexit is probably a good thing for the smoldering pile of wreckage that used to be Great Britain. But there are some glorious nuggets of insanity buried in this article such as:
“European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker says he believes Brexit will happen and the EU should tackle its looming budget shortfall. ‘Don't believe those who say that it's not going to happen and that people in the UK have realised their error... I don't think that's going to be the case,’ he told a Brussels conference.” Because anyone who wants out of the socialist paradise of the EU must be crazy.
“Budget Commissioner Günther Oettinger said the budget gap would have to be closed with 50% spending cuts and 50% fresh money. He suggested a Europe-wide tax on plastic products as a source of extra revenue.” So, to fill the gap, new taxes for everyone!
“1% - Size of the EU budget as a proportion of the European economy; Mr Juncker wants it to go up” The EU bureaucracy sucks up 1% of the European economy, and that’s not enough for them?
"Europe is sinking into a pit of self-made ruin and there are those here who look at it and say “we should be just like them!” Madness.
"By the by, I recently traveled overseas to visit family, and I stopped in London, for the first time in about 12 years. I remember the first time I went, well over 20 years ago, and the level of decay on the streets is just awful. It used to be a relatively tidy city, especially around the tourist traps like the British Museum, but it was just a mess. It’s a real disgrace."
But remember, peasant, opposing immigration is "racist".
Because they Contribute So Much to Society.
They all look the same to me.
Michael G. sends, "Those who boycott Israel are mad that Israel has announced it is boycotting them." NO SOUP CANCER VACCINE FOR YOU!
Then, "Don't throw me in that briar patch! Democrats say if they don't get their amnesty they will shut the government down. IF we can get the Republicans to show some spine, I would call that a win/win situation."
He then sends a potential food-storage tip: "I used a pair of 'Hot Hands' warmers for about an hour, and in order to preserve them for further use I put them in a small button top jar. Later I saw that the jar lid had sealed itself with the button down. Obviously, as the 'Hot Hands' used up the oxygen remaining in the jar it had reduced the pressure, causing the jar to seal. This gives me an idea for food storage. Storing flour, or other grains, you want to keep it away from humidity and oxygen, to prevent mold and meal worms. So put it into a container that can be sealed air tight, and then on top of the flour before you seal the container place a plastic lid upside down and on the lid place a desiccant pack and a 'Hot Hand'. The desiccant will absorb any humidity and the 'Hot Hand' will absorb any oxygen, causing the container to seal. And when it is time to reopen the container the 'Hot Hand' should still have several hours of use left in it."
Cure for (at least a kind of) tinnitus. Working on it.
Prohibition FAIL and there's always another way.
MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD
Hey quick what's Google's motto?
I keep telling you, they really do hate us for the color of our skin.
THERE'S NOTHING HOLDING IT UP except a few guys parking cars in the rain for minimum wage.
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe TV series The Gifted, mutants are being hunted by the government and the would-be successors to the X-Men are running an underground railroad to protect them. The parallel to immigration is typically heavy-handed. Some of the "refugees" turn out to be brainwashed timebombs, reporting or turning on the people trying to help them. After one such attack one of the characters says, "We can't turn away desperate people just because some of them might be dangerous." And I yelled at the screen, YES WE CAN, BECAUSE SANE PEOPLE DO EXACTLY THAT. But it appears there aren't any sane people anymore....
Hey remember those lampshades made from human skin and the tattoo collections from the National Socialist murder-camps? That could never happen here... RIGHT?
Hey remember how anyone who expressed concerns about a homosexual agenda preying on children was called "paranoid" and "homophobic"?
Don't Go to College....
All you lying, back-shooting murderers look the same to me.
Big electric company cuts prices after Trump cuts taxes.
Speaking of doing crappy jobs for minimum wage, the employers expect you to die for them too.
Hey remember when segregation was a bad thing?
Think about the kind of people who aid and abet serial rapists and then are encouraged to run for President.
Michael G. sends, "WA gov says state legislature only has 59 days to save the world by destroying the state's economy."
Because there's a "consensus"?
As if the place weren't draconian enough already.
And across the river in this horrible place, immigrants keep contributing to society. And all their fourth-cousins-thrice-removed, and all their EBT cards....
Which segues to:
An awakening in the Czech Republic. It bears repeating that one of my '98 Mausers was made there a very long time ago, saw a lot of use for a lot of years, and I would still bet my life on it.
What if an armed society really is a polite society?
It's the Jeffersonian and SMLE Fan Skype Show, Work Sucks Edition!

Which segues to "your" "fair" "share".
"Social media has turned taking offense into an international sport."
I keep telling you, they really can't see us as human beings.
FIFTEEN DOLLARS AN HOUR! What did they think would happen? Problem is, if a magic wand were waved eliminating all minimum wage requirements, there would be people starving (and rioting) before the market properly adjusted. But sometimes the only way out of this kind of mess requires just such a ruthless reset.
Because there really is nothing holding it up.
In further support of which, back here I noted how Puerto Rico's government didn't want its people to be "relieved" after a hurricane strike. And how is that Trump's fault, or mine?
A while back I asked, "You ever notice how the people who claim to be 'fighting racism' are the same people who are calling for the oppression or outright murder of anyone with white skin?" (If I ever have spare time and energy after long days of parking cars in the rain for minimum wage and scrambling across town on my five-dollar all-day transit pass to get errands done, I may try to duplicate my YouTube content on Minds.com, as I attempted on Vid.me, which shut down last month.)
In the same video I wondered why "feminists" can't stand the idea of a woman using a gun to defend herself from a rapist.
The place where Germany used to be....
...is "Coming to America".
Enemy action in Virginia-of-all-places.
"We offer zero apologies to anyone that is offended".
Years ago, when I was adjusting the Constitution of the United States of America to fit my fictional future history, I wrote: "No system or process of automated or mechanized law enforcement shall be valid, and any fine or penalty imposed through such means shall be void." Michael G. sends, "The statistics have proven, this infringement on liberty results in LESS safety. Showing on a small scale what we know is true on a large scale."
THIS is what I'd rather be doing any given weekend. (Oh gods, my knees... my back... my lungs....)

Jeffersonian, 7:54 PM: that's going on the Skype Show
Codrea observes "...[A] telling glimpse of character. Their personal conduct regarding fidelity becomes the business of everyone whose lives Flores’ and Braynon’s penchants for betrayal directly impact." Think about the kind of people who don't trust you with the means to defend yourself.
To which dot connect the rot spreading through all forms of entertainment.
Sooooo, the people openly calling for the suppression of free speech and using actual violence to silence debate "are the true defenders of free speech and open debate". And they wonder why the sane people keep buying more guns.
Because, as I keep saying, they really do hate us and want us to die.
"This doesn't explain why the elite don't vacation in Haiti and Cape Town."
FIFTEEN DOLLARS AN HOUR
REAL SOCIALISM HAS NEVER BEEN TRIED
Enemy action in Virginia, Monday. If you're there, send a f***ing pre-written email. (Nice to see VCDL finally got their email alerts easily linkable a year or so ago. All the state-level orgs should do that. In my position I can't do much for the Cause but I can at least post a damn link.)
Michael G. sends: "Darn those Republican NRA members! The Other McCain looks at one horrific crime, that did not involve Republican NRA members, and how another author compares it to a different crime, also not involving Republican NRA members, then the other author concludes both crimes are the fault of Republican NRA members."
It's still not Republican NRA members doing this either.
"I didn’t vote for an angel, I voted for results... so far so good."
Prohibition will always fail. And there's always another way. Michael G. sends another example. Because, "The citizen most certainly can fight the government, and usually wins when he tries."
Maine also has Constitutional Carry but I don't want to move there either.
Terraforming Mars. Maybe not as difficult as previously feared. The magnetosphere thing, though, that's gonna need some thought. But that's being worked on too.

"Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."
Immigrants, Contributing to Society.
The rot spreading through the entertainment industry is not entirely socio-political. Some of it is just crap.
Astute Observation o' the Day: "F***ing MSM can’t f***ing report the correct color of the sky because of Trump."
This is why I hate shopping for groceries anymore. I mean really, literally, exactly, might-as-well-be-a-photo-of-my-last-trip, why.
Colonizing Luna isn't necessarily as difficult as feared either.
PROJECT GUNWALKER AND WHY SHOULD WE EVER BELIEVE ANYTHING SAID BY ANY LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER?
"Tolerant" and "Inclusive" OR ELSE.
"Look at the Dominican Republic. Same island, same natural resources, same brown people as the left disparagingly calls them, doing way better than Haiti."
White president wants to 'confiscate black farms without compensation'OH. WAIT.
Speaking of s***hole countries, it takes one to make a Kalashnikov that doesn't work.
Michael G. sends "More entertainment rot: East Coast Comic Con organizer bans Kevin Sorbo from attending, not for anything he has done but because he is friendly to Hannity. Ignore the fact that he starred in two of the most successful genre TV shows, one fantasy one sci-fi, if he dares be friendly to people we hate he must be shunned. How long before Shatner is banned because he played a conservative on Boston Law, or a cop on T J Hooker?" With more of the same in the sidebar. They hate people for not hating people, while they call for an end to hating people. 'The "racist or bullying" behavior was not explained and no evidence that it occurred was presented.' What happens when the entertainment industry alienates all their customers? (Sigh, all the Star Wars analysis videos on YouTube, blinders-wearing fans desperately scrambling to fabricate justifications for why The Last Jedi isn't crap....)
Then, "Harvard professors, masters of projection. Harvard professors say President Trump exhibits the four signs of an authoritarian. '1. The leader shows only a weak commitment to democratic rules. 2. He or she denies the legitimacy of opponents. 3. He or she tolerates violence. 4. He or she shows some willingness to curb civil liberties or the media.' Funny, that seems to be a better description of a President whose initials were B and O. Or of the ongoing activities of the left."
Speaking of mental illness, "global" "warming" cultists gonna cult.
Speaking of unquestioning faith in a cult fantasy, tell me for the thousandth time how "real socialism has never been tried".
Some miles from the hovel, in a separately-defined "city" of the urban sprawl, there used to be a great big Fred Meyer (Kroger-related) supermarket. The way I heard it, it was literally driven out of business once the illegal immigrants moved into the area and shoplifted the place to economic death. And that also is why I hate buying groceries anymore.
Yeah, so, some fumble-fingered flunky in Hawaii "pushed the wrong button" and how is that Trump's fault? My bet - unprovable - is it was a deliberate, partisan act to fabricate something to blame on Trump.
That Vegas massacre still isn't adding up either. "The narrative fell apart so quickly it had to be shut down in order to construct a new one."
BRIAN AITKEN PARDONED. But he never should have been robbed and kidnapped in the first place and what took RINO Christie so long? Why didn't he do that years ago when he commuted the first sentence?
Because, More Guns, Less Crime. We Told Them So. Any costumed thug with a government gun who ever enforced any "law" against the owning or carrying of arms is on the side of the real criminals.
After several moons, Aurora, part 74, is finally online. If you find this fictional future history entertaining, please consider a charitable donation through the PayPal button at the top or bottom of most pages on this site. Thank you.
Massive Vote Fraud....
Years ago I wrote "...[G]overnment 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...." More recently were reports of that very thing happening in Puerto Rico. Michael G. sends actual hard proof that government really does poison everything it touches. And how is that Trump's fault?
Speaking of Trump and s***holes, Tom Kratman, one of my favorite authors, in his M-Day series, drawing from his experiences as a US Army officer, had characters - based directly on men he served with - finding themselves in Africa. One, who was black, said, "Thank God my great-granddaddy got dragged onto that boat." (In the Sunday chatroom, one of the handful of regulars is also on active duty in the Army, and attests that he has heard that exact phrase from men he serves with. It's a widespread experience.)
"Facebook, in cooperation with a British Muslim group, Faith Associates, recently launched a new 'guide' developed especially for Muslims: 'Keeping Muslims Safe Online: Tackling Hate and Bigotry'."
But claiming there's some kind of agenda is "Islamophobic" and "racist".
To which dot connect oh look yet another FAKE HATE CRIME because there aren't enough real ones.
But keep telling me how immigrants contribute to society.
They really do fantasize about reprogramming our minds. Because they really don't see us as human beings.
To which dot connect burn the government schools.
I keep saying that. Lest my readers think it an extreme position, let me inform you that, in their own words, they really would rather let your children be brutally murdered than allow them to defend themselves or each other.
And the colleges too, where skin color matters more than professional qualifications.
Michael G. sends, "Punch back twice as hard. Hit them in their pocketbook." Now this is not wholly Lighter News because the city will just order their police to write more tickets and rob more innocent people at government gunpoint, but I guess we can't just hang the bastards yet....
In truly Lighter News, though, two corporations are racing each other back to manned spaceflight. Faster, please.
The Prophet Heinlein postulated the "Shipstone", a high-capacity battery, as a grossly simplified explanation. Michael G. sends, working on it. "Of course even if it works you need to produce energy before you can store it." But as I noted just the other day, that's being worked on too.
Many times in these pages I've said that prohibition proves itself the greater evil. It was a plot point in a JPFO novel some years ago. AND IT'S TRUE.
Looks like a battle won in Virginia.
"Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them...."
The insane hate the sane and call them insane for not being insane.
Years ago John Ringo wrote a novel exploring the cultural divide between urban and rural populations, which ended with bloody civil war and outright genocide. But that was just a story... RIGHT?
Codrea connects dots between the fake missile alert and the anti-self-defense perverts.
And then this happens.
The Quislings of Fairfax....
Hey... what if terrorism really is what immigrants contribute to society?
And the few domestic ones we have, well, I've already observed where they come from.
You know, I think I've said here a couple times, next to America, everywhere is the Third World, and the world keeps proving me right.
And not every part of America is American.
THERE'S. NOTHING. HOLDING. IT. UP.
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "Not clear on the concept: The Trump tax cuts punish high tax blue states by limiting the deductibility of state taxes. (It actually doesn’t hurt me, because by increasing the standard deduction for married people, I still come out ahead, as do most people who live outside of NYC....) But NY’s genius governor wants to offset the impact of this by... making new taxes!
"The obvious solution, cutting taxes and spending, never seems to have crossed anyone’s mind.
"And, no doubt, this moron will get re-elected handily in the fall, just like Comrade Warren Wilhelm, I mean Bill DeBlasio, despite being hated by just about everyone.
"As you say often, I’m getting that walls-closing-in feeling, and there’s no handy droid to shut down the masher."
Okay, so, the entertainment industry is infested with serial rapists and actual acts of treason, Star Wars is being ruined, Star Trek and Doctor Who already have been, the Hugo Award has become as meaningless as the Oscar, and now Colt revolvers don't even look like Colts anymore. Looks like someone dropped it and bent the trigger guard. Fer cryin' out loud.
Which segues to, new meme:
MEG FELLEBAUM PARDONED but again what took RINO Christie so long?
Yeah, I have a whopping $43.68 in that account,
after about seven and a half years.
YouTube/Google/The Ministry of Diversity and Tolerance
only pays in increments of $100.
Which reminds me, years ago someone sent me $20 through GunPal,
an allegedely pro-gun PayPal alternative.
That never came through either, before GunPal evaporated.
This is how my world works.
In this horrible place, Portland activist finds himself snared in #MeToo movement. Brainwashing people to hate, inciting them to violence, praising them for destroying the targets of their bigorty, what did he think would happen? On the other hand, maybe the Left really is little else but serial rapists who like to hurt people. Which description fits their policy platforms also.
Such as REAL SOCIALISM.
What if DACA-age immigrants really are more likely to commit violent crimes? And how does that make me "racist"?
Which segues to, some time ago was this item about Islamists infiltrating police and military forces in the place where Europe used to be. Michael G. now sends: "Did you get the Daily Caller article on the penetration of Congress by Pakistani IT workers? The report says that it looks a lot more like an operation by a foreign intelligence agency than a simple crime. Even if it is simple crime, it would be the kind perpetrated by a large crime organization."
Then, "Surprise! Muslims fear backlash from hate hoax! Maybe if they genuinely feared a backlash, they wouldn't commit hate hoaxes... and the other s*** followers of the religion of peace get up to."
WHAT IF THEY REALLY ARE S***HOLES?
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "More from the 'not clear on the concept' file. The NY Slimes here manages to blame guns!!!!, distrust of the police, police inaction, and poverty for the societal breakdown in Baltimore.
"Let’s consider this in more detail. Maryland has highly restrictive gun laws. Couple this with the mention in the article that most murders in Baltimore are carried out by individuals with extensive prior criminal records, and the logical conclusion is that at the time those guns murdered people, they were being held by people who legally shouldn’t have been holding them.
"This feeds right into the next two items on The Slimes' list, distrust for and inaction by the police. Spend years screaming that the police are abusing you, that the reason that little Jimmy’s (age 17) been arrested for 37 violent felonies since age 12 is because the cops are racist, that you’re going to f#%£ up the next cop you see, rioting in the streets, et al, and there’s inevitably going to be a result. And the end result was that the cops just walked away. Now, the revolving door legal system, the culture that glorifies thug lifestyle and violence, and their own actions have come back to bite them, and they cry 'why aren’t the police doing something?!?' Well, you can’t have it both ways.
"Consider poverty. I live in one of the poorest counties in New York State, yet crime here is very low. This is true of many places around the country, poverty does not automatically lead to high crime. Others have discussed this in detail.
"So in the end, they manage to miss the obvious, that a culture that glorifies violence, encourages dependence, and an ineffective legal system that allows recidivist criminals to walk free, in short, the progressive dream, leads to societal breakdown."
And as if on cue.
Yeah, it's still not Republican NRA members doing this either.
Now that I have a moment, clicking through on that YouTube
and they have the gall to say
"In 2018, a major focus for everyone at YouTube is protecting our
creator ecosystem and ensuring your revenue is more stable....
...[W]e’re making changes to address the issues that affected our community
in 2017 so we can prevent bad actors from harming the inspiring and original
creators around the world who make their living on YouTube.
A big part of that effort will be strengthening our requirements for
monetization so spammers, impersonators, and other bad actors can’t hurt
our ecosystem or take advantage of you, while continuing to reward those
who make our platform great. ...These higher standards will also help
us prevent potentially inappropriate videos from monetizing which can hurt
revenue for everyone...."
And so on. It's all the fault of those
nasty individualists who won't conform to their idea of perfect
diversity. Well, GoogTube doesn't own the whole internet, other
outlets will come into being, whether they like it or not... and all my
most important videos I either have the originals of, or for those that were
trapped on failing (SEAGATE) hard drives,
I went and captured them with some loss of quality.
I have said, in these pages, in almost the exact same words, "...[T]he word democracy does not appear in the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution or any other of our founding documents." But some people don't want checks and balances.... "The Founders expressed contempt for the tyranny of majority rule, and throughout our Constitution, they placed impediments to that tyranny." Or as blogbrother SMLE Fan has observed, that's not a bug, it's a feature.
They are all so f***ing ignorant....
...And they really believe we are too.
Michael G. observes, "The man who put up a reward for information in the Seth Rich murder case has been attacked with a caustic chemical. THAT'S not suspicious at all. No doubt some kind of innocent misunderstanding."
"...Sweden is preparing to distribute a civil defense brochure to some 4.7 million households, warning them about the onset of war." What did they think would happen?
Constitutional Carry action in Alabama. Looks like "any" non-prohibited person, not just state residents like Wyoming, Idaho and North Dakota.
Speaking of Alabama and not needing your f***ing permission....
The NRA Board election is getting adversarial. Note how comments are disabled on the Hammer column, the first time I've ever noticed that on an Ammoland piece. (Ammoland's comment system is notoriously buggy, with comments taking hours or days to show up, then disappearing again. It's probably not some vast moderators' conspiracy, there are too many comments to censor to such a degree. No comments at all is eyebrow-raising though.)
Space enthusiasts used to love NASA and many still do, but any who've actually dug a little hate NA$A and wish for a hundred competitors to put them completely out of business.
"She goes to Haiti to prove black men are not violent towards women. Gets raped. Blames white men."
Which segues to Immigrants Contributing to Society.
Don't Go to College, where if you don't think exactly like the powers that be, your personal information will be sent to domestic terrorists.
To which dot Michael G. connects, "Court rules college can't limit free speech to a tiny area and call it constitutional. Of course, judges are a lagging indicator. Just wait until the current crop being made far freakier and unstable start getting issued their black robes."
Which segues to the daily dots:
In my fictional future history I postulate the Cheap Energy Age, with individual buildings independently powered, and vulnerable infrastructure "grids" greatly reduced or even eliminated. Working on it.
I had dreams once.
Most of them are dead.
This is about all that's left.
To prop up all those Immigrants who Contribute to Society.
Which segues to yet another reason to Don't Go to College, via Michael G.: "Blogger working with Tehran secret police posted to Harvard's Shorenstein Center. 'Shorenstein’s director, Nicco Mele, defended Derakhshan’s appointment. “The work that Hossein is doing at the Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center is not about Iran or politics related to Iran,” Mele said in a statement emailed to IranWire. “The school does not endorse a particular position regarding the Iranian opposition.”' I think that confirms everything we thought about Harvard, and their goals for individual freedom."
Speaking of taxes, no, NA$A's budget is not that big a burden, but real space enthusiasts hate NA$A nonetheless.
Social Justice vs. Market Forces. Who would win? But the only response is to do it again, HARDER.
To which dot connect HEY QUICK WHAT'S GOOGLE'S MOTTO
Michael G. sends 'Proof not even Greens believe in human caused climate change. "The nature of this leftist strategy was recently laid bare in a court filing in Texas. It seems that a major energy company is finally fighting back against the left's nuisance lawsuits and its smears by mounting a legal effort of its own."'
Didn't I just say, a hundred, or a thousand, competitors to put NA$A completely out of business. Faster, please. Okay this particular example is coming from two national government space agencies, which is not what I mean, but the more people of any kind getting into the game, the better.
Encore l'Prohibition FAIL and there's always another way.
Another competitor. More. Faster.
News like this could get Trump reelected.
Michael G. sends, Antifa Protester Nearly Strangled to Death By Trump Supporter In New YorkOH. WAIT. And they wonder why we keep buying more guns.
Then: "The SAS man who was first into the Iranian embassy during the London Iranian embassy hostage situation is living homeless while the only surviving terrorist from the incident has been paroled and is living in a government provided luxury apartment." Yeah. Like that.
Oregon legislature introduces bill to ban shoelaces. No, really.
Oh look yet another FAKE HATE CRIME on campus.
Immigrants Contributing to Society....
Even the wretched hive of scum and villainy has its moments of awakening.
For years I've been half-heartedly listening to the Gun Talk radio program while hanging out with a handful of like-minded folks in a chatroom, every Sunday 1100-1400 Pacific Time. Comes now, a new show to pick up where that one ends, and if they're starting with Codrea, I can expect a higher level of ideological purity.
It's the Jeffersonian and SMLE Fan Skype Show, What I Would Rather be Doing With My Life Edition!
Jeffersonian, 6:56 PM: let's win the lottery and sign up for this
Jeffersonian, 6:56 PM: what could possibly go wrong
SMLE Fan, 7:07 PM: um, there won't be enough left to send to the next of kin?
Jeffersonian, 7:07 PM: REGRET NOTHING
All Hail Saint John.
Michael G. observes, the NFL refuses to run commercial from American Veterans calling for respect for flag during Superbowl. I asked not long ago, what happens when the entertainment industry alienates all their customers?
Then, and not for the first time, the line between satire and policy has been erased.
Some 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?"
I also pondered people who won't do their part.
Okay, so, Intel chips have a flaw which opens security vulnerabilities, and they issue patches to fix the flaw, and the patches are flawed and they tell their customers to stop using them. Anyone else remember Pentium of Borg? "You will be approximated?" Linux is looking better all the time. So far I haven't found anything I used to do in Windows for which there is not a functional equivalent in Linux, except some games, and more of those are being released for the Linux market too these days.
On campus, they're having trouble denying freedom of speech, so they deny the audience instead.
Immigrants! Contributing! To Society!
Michael G. sends the faith-in-human-nature o' the day.
I'm working 6am to 5pm
to park other people's cars
in the rain
for minimum wage.
FluffyTux doesn't like the schedule either.
Not a lot of energy for blogging.
Another view on YouTube's new monetization rules.
Constitutional Carry action in South Dakota. The North already has it, but for state residents only.
Real space enthusiasts ridicule NA$A.
"Adults were mandated to be powerless to protect their charges." Think about that.
A case could be made that massive vote fraud fits that description too.
Which segues to, Michael G. sends "A portrait of the suicide of Norway. To be honest, it was a murder-suicide. The 'elites' of society insist on suicide and when ordinary people protest they are made to go first."
To which dot connect, "Notice all the leaders in favor of keeping the Muslim invaders out are from countries that were once behind the Iron Curtain."
"...[W]hites alone [are] being warned away from embracing racial identity." And the rot in the entertainment industry continues to spread....
Slander from the usual sources and blood libel in Vegas. Riiiiiight, SHOT Show is some seeeeecret conpiiiiiiiiiiracy that gets plastered all over social media and YouTube and even old-fashioned amplitude modulation every single year.
In the news, The Last Jedi receives four Oscar nominations. And that's all I need to know about the Oscars.
Speaking of news, the biggest source of fake news is the news.
Immigrants contributing psychotic disconnects to society....
Michael G. sends, "That old Leftie Dr. Seuss understood what 'Dreamers' really meant, all the way back in 1948. I wonder how fast Wikipedia will edit this page to meaninglessness if it starts to get a lot of attention." Which is why I'm also providing the Infogalactic link.
The place where Britain used to be....
This horrible economic-death-spiral place....
Looky, I believe in the concept of rehabilitation, and in Codrea's Law and its inverse, but I'm getting tired of working next to people covered in prison tattoos.
Genocidal dictator Joseph Stalin is reputed to have said, "He who votes counts for nothing. He who counts the votes counts for everything."
"Mancos school board backs away from arming school staff." "And now everyone in the area knows." Think about that the next time you send your child to the government schools.
So the other day was some racist article about how the fictional African country of Wakanda, from the Marvel Comics universe, is "what Africa would have been if the whites hadn't ruined it." Okay, well, in South Africa, whites are now an oppressed minority and the blacks are in charge and how's that working out for everyone? And how does that make me "racist"?
Just the other day I was repeating blogbrother SMLE Fan's observation that constitutional checks and balances and restrictions on government power are not bugs, but features.
Back here a gay, black, openly racist, openly biased Obama-supporting TV reporter murdered innocent human beings. Michael G. now observes: "Kentucky school murderer is son of reporter. Not enough information in this article to identify her and check her work for bias, but something to keep an eye on." This one identifies the murderer as Gabe Parker, son of Mary Garrison Minyard, editor of Marshall County Daily Online. Nothing leaping out at me there, and even Wikipedia is saying the county has turned considerably to the right in the last several elections.
Blogbrother SMLE Fan observes immature technologies. There's still some debate about how, or whether, the tax-paid subsidies for the Tesla were paid back. Elon is not one of Our Kind. We're just really fond of his other products.
SMLE Fan then connects dots between evolution and "global" "warming". Fossil evidence dismissed as "Zionist plot" in 3, 2, 1....
Sweden has most of the civilian-disarmament policies the anti-self-defense perverts want to enact here. Sweden has a high rate of immigration, which the same perverts also want. Sweden is also a welfare state, with high taxes on the productive class propping up a large population who won't work, again just as those same perverts want implemented in America. This is how that's working out. It's not paranoia. It's not "Islamophobia". It's not "racism". THE EXPERIMENT HAS BEEN PERFORMED AND THE RESULTS CAN BE CLEARLY SEEN.
Show, chat and show every Sunday 1100 Pacific Time.
In my fictional future history, and in the Prophet Heinlein's too, are postulated partial cloning of human bodies for replacement of old or damaged parts. Getting there.
Likewise, I wrote about a world ravaged by meteors. Michael G. sends anti-asteroid weaponry under development.
It's the Jeffersonian and SMLE Fan Skype Show, Cowboy Hipster Edition!
SMLE Fan, 6:20 PM: not really a shotgun fan unless it has exposed hammers
SMLE Fan, 6:21 PM: although the Shockwave loaded with those itty bitty shells and that rubber aftermarket plug thingy that ensures reliable feeding has caught my interest
Jeffersonian, 6:21 PM: well now you have to get into CAS/SASS
Jeffersonian, 6:21 PM: AND YOU'RE GONNA HAFTA DO IT HIPSTER
Jeffersonian, 6:21 PM: Schofields
Jeffersonian, 6:21 PM: no, RUSSIAN CONTRACT
SMLE Fan, 6:22 PM: NUMBER THREE RUSSHIN AWL TEH WAY
Jeffersonian, 6:22 PM: and a SPENCER
Jeffersonian, 6:22 PM: of which modern centerfire reproductions are available
SMLE Fan, 6:22 PM: MAUSER 1871
SMLE Fan, 6:22 PM: LEMAT
SMLE Fan, 6:22 PM: COLT 1878
Jeffersonian, 6:23 PM: DID SOMEBODY SAY "LEMAT"?
SMLE Fan, 6:24 PM: COWBOY NAME: "YPNHOI" ("you've prolly never heard of it") :D
Jeffersonian, 6:26 PM: Seminole word for "hipster"
SMLE Fan, 6:27 PM: and instead of a Stetson, I'll sport a turban with feathers sticking out of it, so nobody will be quite sure which culture I'm appropriating
The rot in the entertainment industry continues to spread. “Sorry, your factually accurate and incredibly well-made historical epic won’t be considered for best picture because you didn’t cast John Boyega in the role of a poor serf in 12th century Britain :(”
Likewise the rot on campus, on which Michael G. sends: "Free speech is white supremacy, according to Evergreen State lecture, so when they censor anyone who disagrees with them they are protecting free speech."
"President Reagan’s biggest regret as president was... trusting Congress...."
And this is why that matters.
Back here I was reminded of a major supermarket being shoplifted out of business. Nobody wants to talk about who is doing that. Hint: It still isn't Republican NRA members.
Lifelike androids (or lifelike prosthetics for amputees). Working on it.
Finished Drake's Birds of Prey a few days ago, beginning Another Girl, Another Planet, which appears to be a sequel to The Return of William Proxmire, in which "Admiral Heinlein doesn’t let the Soviets build spacecraft."
Real space enthusiasts still hate NA$A.
And remember, peasant, you're not paying "your" "fair" "share".
'Nadine el Enany, the first signatory of the appeal against the United States' so-called "Muslim ban", is one of the signers of the appeal to boycott her Israeli academic colleagues.' And that's all I need to know about college.
To which Michael G. connects, "Pomona College 'Intro to Statistics' will teach social justice. It makes sense. We've already got social justice lies, and social justice damn lies, so what else is left?"
Oh look, another act of vehicular terrorism. "The driver’s identity is also being withheld." That pretty much guarantees it's not a Republican NRA member.
Which segues to even more Immigrants Contributing to Society. It has been observed that people from other cultures are not like us and their ways of life are not compatible with ours. It's not "racist" if it's true.
Michael G. observes backlash against the Gaystapo. Which I have also pondered.
Then, "Euro-skeptic Czech president wins re-election. With Poland and Hungary firm, and movement to sanity in Austria, maybe the former Austro-Hungarian Empire and Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth will again save Europe from jihadists."
Blogbrother SMLE Fan ponders his job security.
In the genocidal leftist power-fantasies, their regime will use the military to bomb into submission anyone who doesn't share their delusions. What if that military doesn't want to?
Remember, peasant, media bias isn't real.
Speaking of things that aren't real, LibertyDoll has the gibbering-psychosis-as-official-policy roundup o' the day.
And what if that's not a paranoid conspiracy theory?
The other day I was observing how some cultures really are inferior to others.
Caught some of the State of the Union last night. I'm part libertarian and part nationalist, so I was simultaneously excited and terrified by what I saw and heard - often by the same word in the same sentence. On the gripping hand, still not Hillary. Because her kind really do hate us and want us to die.
Not for the first time I observe Immigrants Contributing Deadly Diseases Civilized Nations Have Exterminated to Society.
Constitutional Carry action in Virginia. VCDL tried before and, keeping their word, are trying again. If you're there, help them.
An increment in Arkansas.
CMP 1911s aren't really exciting me - I'm not that kind of collector, and everyone is making new 1911s, some of the Philippine offerings being quite decent at under $500. Nobody's making new Garands at any price though, which is why mine was such a big deal.
In my fictional future history I postulate partial cloning to regenerate lost or damaged limbs or organs, which is a thing some life forms right here on Terra are actually capable of - as mentioned in what Michael G. sends: "Pocket sized DNA reader. This could be used for good, or used for bad, most likely used for both. But it certainly is interesting."
Likewise, robot butlers. Getting there.
