RIFLEMAN'S JOURNAL - JUNE 2018
The World Sucks
Everything gets worse all the time in this horrible place. And how exactly is this "law" going to be enforced?
Burn the colleges....
In Lighter News
Uppity in Lansing, Michigan, June 20th. ...Wednesday? When people are at work? While the Other Side busses in thousands of EBT-swipers, double- or triple-dipping our taxes....
Not sure I've ever linked anything from Pat Buchanan before, and I'm certainly not joining the "thin blue line" bootlickers, but "Is white America really black America's biggest problem?" When our taxes have been paying for their widescreens and iPhones and Nikes and Cadillacs for how many years? Really.
WE'RE NOT THE ONES DOING IT.
Burn the government schools.
Show, chat and show every Sunday 1100 Pacific Time.
Michael G. sends "Another Immigrant Contributing to Society: The second time he illegally entered the US was 2016. No doubt the administration was too busy importing additional votes for the Democratic party to worry about a minor thing like stopping the entry of a convicted attempted murderer."
But that's not something we need to worry about right?
Hey, "Authorized" "Journalists", actions have consequences. Fear the one whom you have left with nothing to lose. The same warning applies to the bureaucrats, the legislators, and their costumed-sociopath enforcers....
Michael G. sends, "The world is full of stupid and angry people, and most of them live in this horrible place." Which segues to:
A while back I described, "The city council had been enamored of Arboria on Adams' World, and the Maze in Rosalia on Albion. During Aurora's last visit, the tallest building in Arriod had been twelve stories; now there were six over thirty. Nor were they simple towers blocking sunlight, but something approaching ziggurats or step pyramids, each level boasting patios and gardens. Some even had soil two or more stories deep in which trees could take root, providing little patches of forest in the sky. Bridges connected these buildings at multiple levels, some appearing to be made of arched brick, others of riveted steel and suspension cables, still others of wood, with ivy creeping along them and up the walls of the buildings themselves. Still other bridges seemed to be insubstantial and fairie-like, with delicately-sweeping arches of armorglas giving unobstructed views to the surface a hundred and more meters below. It was a city park above the city. Aurora and her Family found it charming." Kinda like this but on a much larger scale, and as a deliberate and coordinated program.
ON THIS DAY
And then I got out of bed and
went back to work.
He then sends even more from this horrible place: "Where YOUR speech is violence but THEIR violence is speech."
And the rot keeps spreading.
Is the FAA sacrificing your safety for diversity? It's not like anything of that sort has ever happened before or could ever happen again.
To which dot connect a recent SCOTUS ruling on gay wedding cakes, "so narrow as to not set any sort of precedent whatsoever." No help from that direction....
Way back here I pondered people who spend a lot of money on gear but can't actually hit anything. Get some training and then get some competition. -Of course this has relevance; the government thugs really believe their "training" of hardly a box of cartridges per year makes them superior to us, the true enthusiasts, who will fire three or four or ten times that in a weekend without ever hurting anybody. (The worst injury I've ever seen in fifteen years of competition shooting was the guy who broke his wrist mountain-biking with his son the weekend before.) Which segues to:
Remember, peasant, nobody needs an AK-47 for home defense. -I used to denigrate the AR family, in these same pages, as being underpowered, unreliable, and made of soft gooey aluminum. Now I build them.... As for the Great Divide between AR and AK, my answer would be "yes", based on logistics - which one can you resupply from the corpses of your enemies?
Several times in this journal and in my fictional future history I have postulated advanced prosthetics. I am presently writing about a lifelike gynoid. Michael G. sends, working on it.
Speaking of my fictional future history, I've written about alien reptiles with reflective scales. Yeah, like that.
I also wrote, "Energy-storage had improved vastly since the Escape; the Casetti M437 plasma pistol Danner and much of the crew usually wore carried 27 standard charges of 1.3 kilojoules each. The New Texas Arms MkLX rifle, Marine Corps issue, carried fifty charges of 6.4kJ in the standard configuration; the Delta variant took power from the Mobile Infantry's armor." Working on that sort of thing 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."
Didn't I just observe how diversity kills?
Remember, peasant, all you knuckle-dragging mouth-breathing rednecks in flyover country should be more like civilized, enlightened, environmentally-conscious California.
Epic Hypocrisy, Chapter MMMMMCDLXV.
"People accept no responsibility for the acts of psychopaths. Suggesting we should borders on psychotic. Proposing laws to punish us instead of criminals is insanity."
Speaking of disconnects from reality, yeah, sure, the guns made them do it.
To which dot further connect, Starbucks will be completing its corporate suicide soon, and the CEO wants to take the rest of the country with it. At the point of a government gun.
Which segues to:
ON THIS DAY
The Gleiwitz Incident was fabricated by National Socialist Germany to justify their invasion of and war of aggression against Poland. But that sort of thing could never happen here... RIGHT?
Hey remember how warnings against a homosexual agenda targeting children were called "paranoid"?
It's not paranoia if they really are out to get us.
No longer regretting never having served in the military, Chapter MMMMMCDLXVI.
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, asks: "Is that what we’re calling it now? So apparently it’s now 'gender confirmation surgery' rather than 'gender reassignment surgery'. I’m reminded of this passage from Nineteen Eighty-Four: 'Don't you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it. Every concept that can ever be needed will be expressed by exactly one word, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten.' This calls to mind the Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis about language determining thought. It’s very difficult to discuss concepts if your language has no words for them.
"For the most part, I have little concern about what people do to themselves. What bugs me is that the term 'gender' has a very specific meaning from a biological point of view, and linguistic games like 'gender confirmation surgery' disguise the physical reality of what is being done and hides it under this layer of emotional goodthink that is illogical and unscientific. These sort of things encourage the idea that, somehow, how you feel should outweigh observational reality and scientific, logical methodology.
"This kind of 'thinking' leads to the extremely invalid conclusion that all opinions and ideas are equally valid, which is probably the most pernicious contribution of postmodernism. Counterfactual ideas and opinions have no validity at all, because they contradict observable reality. But I guess the goal is to eliminate the notion of observable reality completely.
"Sorry for the rant, but this thing really irks me."
They Are All So F***ing Ignorant, Chapter MMMMMCDLXVII. And they insist on forcing that ignorance down all of our throats at the point of a government gun of the very same kind they don't want us to have.
For the elebenteenth time I tell you, they hate us and want us to die, in so very many of their own words.
So yesterday I was ranting on city governments and predatory enforcement of made-up malum prohibitum and widespread waste and fraud and maybe you thought I was a little over-the-top. BUT THEN THIS HAPPENS. -And of course such proposals are not a new idea.
Likewise, weeks ago I posted what is sure to be misinterpreted as a raaaaacist white supremacist manifesto and I haven't received any death threats probably because hardly anybody reads my stuff. Now explain - in small words - how this makes me "racist".
Speaking of psychotically-fraudulent wastes of tax money, "Green" "Energy".
Immigrants, Contributing to Society....
There really is nothing holding it up.
Which probably segues to an update on that child-sex-and-murder-trafficking camp found in Arizona the other day, which the local authorities are suspiciously reluctant to investigate.
Which segues to the creeping spread of sharia on campus.
Michael G. sends, "Golden rice, which has been genetically modified to prevent blindness in undernourished children, was judged safe to eat last week by the US Food and Drug Administration." "But why did they kowtow to the Left in delaying it so long?" Beeeeecause the left cares more about power, any kind of power over anyone and anything, more than preventing blindness in undernourished children? Or, since "the most important approvals are still awaited in the Philippines and Bangladesh, where the rice could have the greatest impact", maybe they only care about certain kinds of children...?
Hey you know those science-fiction novels - not least Michael Z. Williamson's - with advanced technology and super-smart weapons? Getting there.
Likewise, the other day Michael G. sent an article on advanced prosthetics, to which dot I connected to my own fictional artificially-intelligent gynoid and then this happens.
Finished Forged in Blood, a collection set in Michael Z. Williamson's Freehold universe, which follows one sword across three thousand years of battle. The emotional impact, cumulative and separate, was comparable to the Prophet Heinlein's "The Long Watch". Now beginning Flint & co.'s Grantville Gazette VIII, to be followed by resuming Eric Frank Russell's The Great Explosion, to be followed by the eARC of Ringo & Correia's Monster Hunter Memoirs: Saints.
In the place where Germany used to be, Michael G. sends, "14 year old German Jew raped, murdered by 'refugee'. Note that the party that the establishment says are Nazis is the one calling attention to this and trying to stop it from happening again. Not really surprising, nowadays the Left says the Jews are Nazis and those who say they want to kill all the Jews are the oppressed victims."
Then on campus, "They suspended a conservative freshman because people said that other people said she said offensive things."
Then off campus, "Leftists believe that those who dissent from the Left’s agenda have no rights that Leftists are bound to respect. "
It's not paranoia,
they really are out to get us,
and you're not getting enough shooting practice.
To paraphrase the central AI in THX 1138, "Buy more ammo. Buy more ammo now. Buy... and get practice."
Enemy attack halted in Delaware but Herschel isn't too excited about how.
T'other day I was ranting about parking meters and urban rot and societal decay. Timely visual aid.
The rot continues to spread through all the institutions.
Even around the world.
Michael G. sends a lingering shred of sanity in the Army. -Commie Cadet filing suit at taxpayer expense in 3, 2, 1.... With bonus tone-deaf hypocrisy from his new leash-holders: "Spenser Rapone is a former Army Ranger and Infantry Officer recently separated from the military for speaking out against its imperialist violence."
Okay. So. I avoid shopping at Brownell's because they still carry HS Precision products, which were infamously endorsed by escaped murderer Lon Horiuchi, and because Brownell's has a whole separate law enforcement catalog besides. Still, Brownell's is a major supplier of parts and tools, they sponsor big competitions and, I admit, do some things for the Cause. Now connect all those dots to the looming-for-weeks-now threat of YouTube arbitrarily erasing Our Kind from their platform, and then this actually does happen:
Considering that much of my own content is showing people how guns work, I can expect to be censored as soon as GoogTube notices my existence. Fortunately I have most of the important stuff saved in files which I can just upload again... somewhere.
Considering that much of my own content is showing people how guns work, I can expect to be censored as soon as GoogTube notices my existence. Fortunately I have most of the important stuff saved in files which I can just upload again... somewhere.
I live alone (with a floofy kitteh). The only humans I interact with on a regular basis are either at work, or on the internet. With very few exceptions, I work with stupid people, whom I would not trust with firearms or invite along on a range day. Can your shooting buddies be trusted?
In my fictional future history I postulate the United Nations, which evolves into the Terran Empire, deliberately introducing fertility-suppression chemicals into food and water supplies to reduce birth rates among "undesirable" populations. But that's just a paranoid conspiracy theory... right?
Any government-school employee who tries to not brainwash children is driven out and destroyed.
Speaking of brainwashing, Desert Hermit Joel has the Opposite Day o' the Day.
Michael G. sends, "Showing ID to enter a military base is unfair to illegals! That is apparently the Left's new standard after a pizza delivery man was detained while entering a military base because he didn't have ID, and subsequently picked up by ICE because he was an illegal alien."
Training for armed teachers in Occupied Colorado-of-all-places. Not that government should be running the schools in the first place.
I'm still ticked and alarmed and untrusting of Trump after the bump-stock, "due-process-later" thing, but then he goes and does this.
A while back I wrote, "The Republic, or most of it, approached definition as a post-scarcity society. Once fabber technology, which often meant nanotechnology, became available, anyone could make anything at any time - including flocks of robots to tend crops. Despite this, even on worlds with established spaceports and even space navies, there were still pockets or regions of poverty and low technology. Illyria was still one such, though Queen Agnieszka was working hard to change her kingdom. Eyan was another - even two Monticellan centuries after their liberation from the Terran Empire, some remote Tribes still hunted with flint spears, while starships of the Eyani National Navy orbited above them." Yeah....
On campus, Michael G. sends the Incoherent Psychotic Gibberish o' the Day: "Dog parks are oppressive rape culture. The premise of a recent academic paper. I warn you, reading the excerpts of the paper will leave you dumber." In this horrible place.
Yet another lying newspaper.
Psst... hey... Soros... maybe people don't want to be dictated to by a totalitarian National Socialist collaborator.
And then I got out of bed and
went back to work.
And then Intuit, the parent company of TurboTax and Quicken, get their brown shirts on.
Hey remember that novel Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell where the Ministry of Truth was shoving inconvenient facts down the Memory Hole? That was just a story... RIGHT?
Herschel Smith has questions about Kyle Kashuv's ideological purity, to which dot David Codrea connects the Lairds of Fairfax.
Not unrelated, RINO backstabbing in Texas-of-all-places, and North Carolina also.
Michael G. sends, NY Times, AP Focus on Backlash, Submerge Details of Iraqi Migrant's Murder of German Girl. Well, we've known for years which side they're on.
Burn the government schools and don't go to college.
Michael G. sends, "Supreme Court rules Left can't force Ohio to leave inactive voters on rolls. In a narrow decision they ruled that working to keep elections honest is not discrimination."
No seriously it's a mistake to go to college.
Codrea observes the real "war on women".
I recently wrote, "...[T]he government-run schools of the time - in which attendance was mandatory, with punishments for parents who did not subject their children to the system! - treated students as little better than violent criminals, violating their privacy, suppressing their speech, often prescribing mood-altering drugs to any child who showed independence of thought. When children were bullied in the schoolyard, the victim was punished as severely as the attacker." I often say, in these pages, burn the government schools. Michael G. sends the example of the day: "Big surprise: People who say we have to change what is actually working 'for the children' are just after power and don't give a rat's ass about children's futures and well being. I'll bet her only regret about the killing at the school she is principal of is that a gun wasn't used so she can't blood dance for gun control."
And then this happens too.
On which not-unrelated topic Codrea also opines.
And then this also happens. "The Washoe County School District has decided they prefer dead children and teachers over self-defense."
You know that saying, "If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention"? Which I have also pondered.
It's not "racist" if it's true.
Michael G. sends an awakening in Italy. Which I have also pondered.
I hate this place.
I need to move to one of these places.
Herschel Smith ponders, “My family was nearly wiped out by big goverment who banned citizens from owning guns, so I’m going to support gun banning big government.”
Hey remember how we were called "paranoid" and "homophobic" for warning against a homosexual agenda to corrupt children? And note how all those "pride" marches just happen to take place on Father's Day....
Enemy action in the brainwashing factories in Virginia.
Any teacher who doesn't join in the washing is driven out and destroyed.
Which leads to electoral warfare.
Speaking of washed brains, Michael G. sends, "Conservatives turning Constitution into theocracy.
According to a professor who's definition of 'theocracy' apparently means permitting religious believers any rights at all." -I immediately wonder what "professor" Franke's position on Islam and "palestine" is....
Then in Boston, the historic tavern where the Tea Party - the first one, in 1773 - was planned, gets mobbed by violent bigots.
Then in blogbrother SMLE Fan's (yes I know his site is down, that's being looked into) state of Florida, they really do want to steal property from people who haven't done anything harmful or wrong. Who's the "criminal"?
If they come for your guns, if they come for you, kill them, kill all they send, then hunt down and kill who sent them. Because they are going to murder you anyway and you have nothing left to lose.
Can you hit stuff with a rifle? Most of these lessons are taught at Project Appleseed and you should go there to learn them.
Michael G. sends the Not Paying Attention o' the Day: "Gay Americans arming themselves? This is news to people who have never heard of the Pink Pistols. They still don't recognize that the gun community supports anyone who arms and trains themselves to keep others from making them do what they don't want to do, as long as they don't try to force us to do what we don't want to do."
Imagine a "popular" "grassroots" movement that launches a national tour to promote their ideology but doesn't let anyone know where and when they will appear. Because no one will, except the real grassroots opposition, or the "movement"'s own subliterate hirelings.
Would you trust a bridge, or airplane, or piece of medical equipment, designed or built by people who were judged by the color of their skin?
It's not "racist" if it's true. Which segues to:
The kind of people who think we can't be trusted with guns.
Lest the gulag reference be seen as hyperbole, the place where Britain used to be is trying to murder a reporter for reporting on child-rape gangs. Think about that.
Hey I know, let's open the floodgates to immigrants who have no concept of the American culture of liberty and independence and then put them in charge of making the "laws".
And plague. Don't forget the plague. Michael G. sends, "Article lists states, cities with high numbers of un-vaccinated children. In case you want to avoid the locations of the next epidemics."
Butbutbut we need socialism to bring back extinct species! Like POLIO!
No, really, Intuit are fraudulent bigots, no matter what excuses they make when they get caught discriminating against innocent people with legitimate businesses. If I had a business, I would take it elsewhere.
Speaking of fraud, unions.
Speaking also of fraud, "white privilege".
Which segues to yet another request to explain, in small words, how this makes me "racist".
Quisling backstabbers misguided good intentions in Oklahoma.
Years ago now 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" AND I WAS RIGHT, AGAIN.
Michael G. sends, "Gang of 13 year olds armed with knives! Youth football team uses knives to rescue couple from car crash. Well we can't have that sort of thing! Where are the zero tolerance suspensions? The criminal charges against the kids and their coach?" And again, 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.
I've already predicted that Starbucks will apologize itself right out of business. Schadenfreude.
The other day I said I work with mostly stupid people. Decades ago there was a book on that topic. IT'S TRUE.
Michael G. sends, "SPLC says real epidemic is white on black crime, and that black on white crime doesn't exist." Um, no, when my apartment was burglarized some fifteen years ago, it was black people who did it. And if any of my property ever was recovered it was vandalized, or ended up in some sticky-fingered sociopath's personal collection. I'm seeing little moral or functional difference between the racist thugs who steal my stuff, and the costumed thugs who are supposed to "protect" me from them.
The rot in the entertainment industry continues to spread. Legislation to force people to watch in 3, 2, 1....
Immigrants Contributing to Society....
I said apartheid had not been ended, but inverted.
Michael G. sends, "I thought this never happened: Couple attacked by three armed robbers in grocery parking lot. Man replies with own gun. Result: three injured robbers, couple uninjured." I'm surprised the AJC actually reported it.
And then I got out of bed and
went back to work.
AND THEN I LOST MY JOB.
Corporate beancounters say "no more temps", also "no new hires".
Now I'm to fill out another elebenty pages of intrusive nonsense
to take another step backward in my work history
to drive other people's cars across town
being shuttled thereto in vanfuls of people
with whom communication is difficult if not impossible.
Foxtrot Mike Lima.
Which segues to yet another oathbreaker.
Never Been Tried!
Aaaand there's still nothing holding it up.
Sex-Slavers Against Trump! Think about the kind of people.
It's still not Republican NRA members doing any of this.
But nobody wants to talk about that.
Michael G. sends, DC Has Highest Concentration of Psychopaths in the United States. Well. Duh.
Here is your genocidal psychosis o' the day: "Most of Venezuela’s poor are better off now than they were before the Bolivarian Revolution of Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro." Because starving to death and murdering each other over a roll of toilet paper which doesn't even exist is so much better than American capitalist supermarkets full of everything.
Remember, peasant, private citizens using personal firearms to halt or prevent mass public shootings is a paranoid fantasy that never happens. Michael G. observes, "Meanwhile the Washington state government and gun controllers are working hard to make sure this doesn't happen again."
Michael G. sends, "Immigrant doing job Americans won't. At least I hope to God Americans won't. Also, controlling borders and immigration is a tool of the patriarchy to keep women down."
But tell me again how much Immigrants Contribute to Society.
It was said, at the time of her passing, that with the death of Margaret Thatcher, there were no men left in England. Not quite true. Well maybe it is at that; he's not in England is he? And if he were he'd be in a cell next to Tommy Robinson's, surrounded by the coreligionists of the terrorists he righteously dispatched in honorable battle.
Yeah I guess it's Lighter, because .300 Blackout Blowup Science. -But you know, I can imagine somebody doing that on purpose, sneaking a round into someone else's magazine, because they thought it would be funny to destroy someone's prized possession and maybe maim or kill them in the process. I've worked with that kind of creature at these last several driving jobs. Fortunately most of them are too ignorant to understand, or even access, any of this, and also most of them are probably Prohibited Persons, not that any sane person believes they'd be stopped that way.... Yes I'm growing more cynical and bitter, getting endlessly pooped on by the entire universe has that effect.
In my fictional future history I postulate many advanced medical techniques, including cures for cancer. Michael G. sends, working on it. "We needed a little unambiguously lighter news for a change."
I also postulate personal air transport. Working on that too.
Finished Grantville Gazette VIII, skimming over much of it honestly. Resuming The Great Explosion, which I'm also kind of skimming, to be followed by Ringo & Correia's Monster Hunter Memoirs: Saints eARC.
In the Don't Go to College files, Michael G. sends, "You can write off Penn Law School. They've hired a 'Director of Social Justice Programs'. A clear signal that from this point on their diplomas might as well be printed on toilet paper."
Michael G. sends, "60 organizations consider lawsuits against SPLC. After SPLC settled out of court with another organization they sense blood in the water. Sue, baby, sue!"
One needn't be clairvoyant to have predicted the suicide of Starbucks. What did they think would happen.
Trump has lost the enthusiasm I felt at the beginning of his term, but now Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends, "There are things that the God-Emperor says/does that I don't like... and then he does this."
Bears repeating: Prohibition Will Always FAIL. And there's always another way.
I keep telling you to think about the kind of serial rapists who don't want you able to defend yourself.
Michael G. sends, "Math professor says learning math can harm society. It can lead people to believe there is an objective reality, and base their decisions on that rather than their emotions." And all-y'all are going into how much debt to have this sewage pumped into your brains?
Immigrants Contributing to Society!
Yyyyyeah I'm kind of unemployed again. I didn't even quit-in-disgust this time!
The rot in the entertainment industry. More people are noticing.
A year or three ago a "refugees welcome" activist in the place where one of those European countries used to be was raped and murdered by the "refugees" she welcomed. Not sure if this is the same case or another. Or this or this or these. Comes now even more of the same. It's hard to feel sympathy for people who are, to quote the film Jaws, "lining up to be a hot lunch."
But that's not something we need to worry about....
Meanwhile, Your Tax Dollars at Work, funding the propaganda and indoctrination of our enemies.
Speaking of taxes, no, really, the IRS is out to get us.
Aaaaand then state sales tax on internet sales. Because f*** the peasants that's why.
Hey remember when the ACLU defended free speech?
Oh look even more perversion and degeneracy in Broward County.
Never trust a cop. Of any kind.
Hmm, an increment in Illinois-of-all-places.
Kansas has some other problems, like asset forfeiture, and all the crooks and thieves the policy attracts, but it's still on the list if I can ever escape this horrible place.
It's the Jeffersonian and SMLE Fan Skype Show, Market Forces Edition!
SMLE Fan, 3:01 PM: "The $130 million award for the Falcon Heavy launch is considerably lower than the average $350 million price tag for Delta 4 launches."
Jeffersonian, 3:17 PM: market forces, baby
SMLE Fan, 3:18 PM: "Grandpa, what was NA$A?"
Jeffersonian, 3:19 PM: "Well, little one, to explain that, first I have to teach you about the Iron Law...."
New Jersey, Where the Bill of Rights Goes to Die!tm
Stacking the deck in Utah-of-all-places, where a "school safety" commision "refuses to even consider hardening the targets" and, as usual, blames and punishes everyone who isn't hurting people. Adding the Utah Shooting Sports Council to my front and links pages, and subscribing to their email alerts.
Yesterday I linked an item on how our tax dollars are paying for Islamic terrorist propaganda. Michael G. sends now, California state budget paying for illegal immigrants to fight deportation. Or as the Founders wrote long ago, "Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."
An increment in Mississippi. Which has Constitutional Carry now. But I don't think I'd want to live in a state with all those EBT-swipers....
Court action in Ohio, and in Occupied Maryland.
Scholastic Action Shooting Program. Yeah. Also a YouTube channel. Until it gets arbitrarily shut down and erased....
Random: I am reminded that John Moses Browning was a true master of mechanical design. His elegant .22 rifle makes a Ruger 10/22 look complicated. -But for practical reasons I would rather have the 10/22. Naturally people want Nice Things, but some things are too nice to use and what's the point of that?
Desert Hermit Joel, rising master of off-grid living, displays a different target-holder idea.
I think this one belongs here below the Lighter line. Blogbrother SMLE Fan and I both hate Microsoft for a number of reasons - spyware, malware, hostageware, Bill Gates' enmity to natural human rights as ennumerated in our Constitution, and just plain crappy products. In my case I abandoned Microsoft years ago, after the last time Windows barfed all over its own registry and took some of my Stuff with it, prompting my switch to Linux Mint, which, barring the recent loss of well over a decade's worth of bookmarks (which might have been a hardware error with a salvaged hard drive (and against future such incidents precautions are now being taken)), has been far more stable. We've even come up with our own little acronym, LILBATT: Linux Is Looking Better All The Time. Now SMLE Fan sends the Get Woke, Go Broke o' the Day. Compare to Starbucks.
Monster Hunter Memoirs: Saints, by John Ringo in Larry Correia's Monster Hunter International universe: "The undead were pressing forward, a solid wall of red eyes and grasping hands. When they got under the range we could fire grenades, we switched to kinetic but 5.56 barely pisses off wights. The vamps had their fangs out. I looked down and there was a f***ing Siamese cat with enormously long incisors. It looked like a baby saber-tooth tiger. I think it might have been a f***ing cat vampire. A vampire cat. Was that even possible? That was just too wrong to begin to describe. It was even sort of cool looking."
Which segues to, I said "The political left has nothing but lies, hate and violence." And they keep proving me right.
THE KIND OF PEOPLE. THINK ABOUT THAT.
Michael G. sends again with the United Nations. "Illicit small arms are also used against United Nations peacekeeping forces." Yeah, well, maybe if those "peacekeepers" stopped raping children people would have fewer reasons to shoot them... and I'm reminded again of the very early days of Project Appleseed, when the "fun" targets simulated UN armored vehicles and the points on them which are vulnerable to conventional rifle fire.
Then from campus he sends "Minn State has counselors on standby for students traumatized by diversity training. I think most people would take that as a clue that there might be something wrong with the mandatory diversity training."
The term Demographic Warfare has been in use for years. By those of us who are paying attention.
It's not "racist" if certain kinds of people really can't behave in a civilized manner. But hey, let's invite more of them to move in next door, and give them EBT cards full of our taxes....
Hey... remind me... which party had that "culture of corruption"?
Michael G. sends the Down the Memory Hole o' the Day.
Because there really is a concerted and deliberate effort to misinform everyone about everything.
Not unrelated, "SJW outrage mob goes after woman with no connection to their outrage. When pursuing the thought criminal dujour, it doesn't matter if you focus on the person who actually did what you consider to be a crime. The most virtuous person is the one who screams their hate the loudest." Note also how Twitter "found that there was no violation of Twitter Rules against abusive behavior".
Which segues to, Republican representative Steve Scalise gets almost murdered by an active member of Bernie Sanders' campaign, calls for peace and civility, gets threatened with death all over again. This is why we keep buying more guns and ammunition. (When we're not unemployed....) Because they really do hate us and really are trying real hard to murder us.
Abortion... I remain anti-prohibition, because that always ends up as the greater evil. Since the news came out about Planned Parenthood's baby body parts for sale - fresh, my position has shifted some, but remains close to what I wrote years ago. More to ponder. -Anyway in 21st Century America there is no excuse to not use contraception in consensual intercourse... and non-consensual should be a public-hanging offense in any case.
Remember, peasant, armed self-defense is a fantasy that never happens.
Pretty sure these aren't American government troops, but if they are, it makes me feel better about my odds. If that's the kind of "training" they'll be sending against us. Nor is this the first such example; there was some SWAT sociopath with a month's-rent EoTech on backward, a copette with a AR magazine in backward, and more recently some donut-muncher holding an MP5 by the pistol grip and buttstock and peering through a probably-no-magnification sight while hiding behind a tax-funded vehicle. If y'all have links to those handy, send them along through the "comment" link below, I don't have the energy to hunt them down now.
Still upset with Trump about that "due process later" thing but then he goes and does stuff like this.
Mentally-ill hypocrisy. And hate.
By which is meant venomous anti-self-defense perverts. It's not Godwin if they really are treating us like the National Socialists treated the Jews.
RINO backstabbing in Texas-of-all-places. Adding Texas Firearms Freedom to my front and links pages, and subscribing to their email alerts.
FIFTEEN DOLLARS AN HOUR WHAT DID THEY THINK WOULD HAPPEN.
Violent, racist monsters like Maxine Waters are why we keep buying more guns and ammunition - and, hopefully, getting more training and practice.
Still leery of Trump after that "due process later" thing but then he keeps doing stuff like this.
Codrea observes even more Orwellian revisionism and psychological projection.
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "More useless feel good crap. In many places, the trendiest environmental crap is to push for bans on plastic drinking straws. Once again, these consumer oriented bans are nearly worthless and do nothing except increase costs for the individual. The biggest chunk of plastic waste in the ocean, according to the above article: abandoned industrial fishing gear. And that ain’t getting solved by banning drinking straws."
He then expands on the Wilder book-banning: "So apparently, the Little House on the Prairie series is now to be condemned as racist. But we should be happy, because they aren’t saying outright to burn it in the public square just yet. These books are historical fiction, and the attitudes expressed by the characters (who are based on real people, mind you) are those that were common back then. But Laura Ingalls Wilder (whose character and in real life was far from a racist and often questioned her parents’ attitude toward the Native Americans and blacks) must be a racist because she wrote about racist people accurately. And of course, had she suppressed the societal racism of her childhood, she would still be condemned for presenting an image of the past that ignored patriarchal white supremacist colonialism."
Michael G. observes, "Canada isn't Rotherham - yet. Gang of Muslims convicted of raping 14 year old girl. But will we see something like France? 'It is the "Batman syndrome": the hero refuses to kill, he systematically saves his enemy who escapes and kills new victims until the hero catches up with him, and so on.' — Causeur magazine."
It's still not Republican NRA members slaughtering each other in Chicago Baltimore DC St. Louis. And nobody wants to talk about that.
Gun Confiscation Ballot Measure Dead, in this horrible place. But the anti-self-defense perverts always come back. -Even I, who am constantly underemployed and broke and worrying about money, sent money to the Oregon Firearms Federation. What have you done for the Cause?
Years ago I said KNOW YOUR WEAPON.
Because, blogbrother SMLE Fan sends "...[G]rowing numbers of civilians around the world are in a position to push back against police and militaries that serve often-abusive governments, and that are already outmatched in terms of raw weaponry." And those of us who care are far better shots than the average government thug.
...Aaaand burn the schools I guess.
Which in a broader sense kinda segues to again with the "smart" guns.
Which in turn segues to, remember that missile alert from Hawaii? Highly trained professionals. And your tax dollars.
"The left has gone from harassing and abusing Republicans at restaurants to bomb threats in less than one week!"
Because lies, hate and violence are all they have.
Well, they also have Immigrants, Contributing to Society.
It's still not Republican NRA members brutalizing hundreds of each other every year in Chicago Baltimore DC St. Louis Cincinnati and New York.
And nobody wants to talk about that.
Speaking of things nobody wants to talk about, Clinton Campaign Official Arrested On Child Rape Charges. The only surprising part is that the arrest was actually performed. Considering the arresting officers are probably getting a percentage.
And then left-leaning SJW-spewing Netflix streams child porn. Dots. Connect them.
Prohibition Will Always FAIL. And there's always another way.
Finished Monster Hunter Memoirs: Saints. Quite tasty, Chad Gardenier's story ends, and we learn more about the infamous MHI Christmas Party Where The World Almost Ended. Beginning The Year's Best Military & Adventure SF 2015, also from Baen naturally, which I may have read before.
Blogbrother SMLE Fan informs me Harlan Ellison has passed away. If you haven't, go hunt down Dangerous Visions, among many other works. He was a creative consultant for Babylon 5 of course, and he was, mostly, the writer of the important Star Trek episode "The City on the Edge of Forever". ...And he was evidently several kinds of a**h***. But he wrote good stories.
Michael G. sends, "Journalistic firearms expertise. And, Fudds? They really are coming for your skeet shooting guns."
Some people have called Arizona senator John McCain a Manchurian Candidate, in reference to the 1962 film about a brainwashed POW sleeper agent. Maybe there's something to that.
Speaking of RINO backstabbing, North Carolina again.
Michael G. sends, "A sign of the Dutch starting to reject dhimmitude? Holland passes a burqa ban."
Trigger reset is one of many important things which a lot of "gun owners" unfortunately don't know about. It's also one of many important things taught at Project Appleseed.
Turns out I did read that (year's) Baen Mil-SF collection after all, or most of it. Reading some Star Wars novels and collections in ebook instead.
Immigrants! Contributing! To Society!
Nothing much happening this weekend.
Here is another champion of our Cause.
