RIFLEMAN'S JOURNAL - OCTOBER 2018
The World Sucks
And then I got out of bed and
went back to work.
And that's still not hyperbole.
The other day I called Kavanaugh's accuser's allegations unprovable and credibly disprovable.
Monopolistic censorship and bigoted slander.
To which dot connect, couple days ago Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, observed the difficulty of fighting the pervasive brainwashing of modern interconnected media. Codrea's latest column for Guns magazine examines much the same topic.
But they call us "racist".
Yes, Fudd, that means your grandkids' BB guns too, and Republican NRA members with MAGA hats don't behave that way.
In Lighter News
Meanwhile in the real world, more guns, less crime.
Society needs more of this.
PR0N and the occasional kitteh also
There is a large and active community of AR15 builders all across this great nation. I've been using Firefox plugins to harvest build videos from YouTube before they get censored.
Codrea has perspective on the "guys" who claim to be on our side.
Like the Lairds of Fairfax Trump godsdammit.
New York City, Where the Bill of Rights Goes to Die!tm
This is why racism still exists. White Republican NRA members with MAGA hats don't do these things.
Michael G. observes entertainment rot: "Their approach to fiction and life are the same. A fictional character kills a second fictional character that is trying to kill a third fictional character. That makes the first character a murderer. I'd say it's just fiction, get a life!, but this is the same way they treat real life." But when a quota-hired subliterate Somali immigrant in a government costume murders the woman who called him for help, he was "acting in self-defense and in accordance with his training and department protocols" and anyone who says different is "raaaaaacist". Of course if you want moral ambiguity, I have some....
Then, "It's not fair to punish a lying character assassin. As long as they are lying about Republicans."
With, "Did you think they were going to limit their violence to clubs and guns? This appears to me to be a psyop, but the whole point is that 'Next time it could be a lethal agent.'"
And as if on cue.
Immigrants Contributing to Society
All this talk about media bias and widespread brainwashing and some people are doing something about it.
Michael G. sends backlash in Quebec.
No, really, Episode VIII sucked. -Which reminds me, I really wrote myself into a corner with the Sherrington Atrocity and I'm'a hafta retcon myself a little to get out of it. "Writing isn't easy if you care about the result."
THEY HATE US AND WANT US TO DIE
This is why racism still exists
Which segues to:
NO REALLY EPISODE VIII IS BLOODY AWFUL
A while back I wrote Alice replied, "So we need a higher energy output to create a stronger magnetic field to contain a higher energy output." She frowned, and kicked a clump of desert grass, where the group stood watching, three kilometers away from the still-rising fireball. "And then there's shielding, or we'll buckle hull plates from the magnetics alone...." Getting there.
Speaking of my ongoing fictional future-history serial-web-novel-thing, having to do a considerable not-a-rewrite to get the Sherrington Atrocity and subsequent events back on the rails - introducing a new character, replacing another's name with his, and actually giving him some development before killing him off. Gimme a while.
PERJURY and don't go to college
THE DEMOCRAT PARTY
Trump godsdammit and Fairfax too.
Spinless RINO backstabbing in Vermont.
F*** Starbucks I told you they'd self-destruct.
FABBERS will CHANGE the WORLD
The gun culture has proved to be the belonging I was looking for.
'Rather than learn that Jews need to defend themselves, she launched into “take away guns from everybody else.”' Which segues to:
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, earlier observed the widespread cultural bias and orchestrated brainwashing of children. He now sends "Pervasive cultural rot. I took my younger 2 kids to the bookstore today, and this is what I found on display in the children’s section under civics. Every single one of those books pushes a leftist/progressive agenda. I can’t escape it even in the children’s books."
Which segues to bigoted cowardice in Occupied Colorado.
Which eventually leads to mob rule.
And as always, don't go to college, Where Due Process Goes to Die!tm
Michael G. sends, "Spain breaks up ISIS ring operating in 17 prisons. But since Spain's socialist government persists in welcoming illegal immigrants, stopping one ring is like slapping a bandaid on a lession when quarrentine and antibiotics are needed."
Then, "How can Time magazine make itself less relevant? Put art work of Christie Ford on the cover intended to praise and support her that does the opposite and is ugly to boot." Yeah "her lasting impact" is to never trust a woman, or a Democrat, and especially a Democrat woman.
Immediately followed by "Always believe all women! This actually sounds similar to the character assassination effort launched against Sarah Hoyt's younger son when he was in middle school, that she described in 'When Every Boy is Guilty, Every Girl Becomes a Monster'. And that was years ago in Colorado."
Kavanaugh vote due tomorrow. I predict suicide bombings. Which segues to
Project Gunwalker again.
No, really, suicide bombings in 3, 2, 1 but Republican NRA members with MAGA hats are somehow the greater threat?
Show and chat every Sunday 1100 Pacific Time.
Michael G. sends, first manned SpaceX mission next year. Needs more competitors.
LILBATT, blogbrother SMLE Fan and I often say to each other: Linux Is Looking Better All The Time, especially in comparison to ever-less-intuitive and ever-more-expensive-and-intrusive Windows. Recently had cause to wipe Windows 10 off an Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 14 and install Linux Mint 19 and I hope that shows up in someone's search results because this page right here explains the process step by clearly-described step (although it was for Ubuntu, but Mint is a kind of subset of Ubuntu and the instructions, which are nearly all for Acer BIOS settings, work fine). -And now, since I have a Mint 19 install package on a USB stick, maybe I oughta re-OS the 4+ year old laptop which has been limping along on Ubuntu for rather too long. And since I just got a replacement keyboard for it which should solve the other problem.
Why racism still exists how is this Trump's fault, or the NRA's, or mine?
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends another report on Immigrants Contributing Medieval Plagues to Society.
Michael G. sends, "Money in politics is bad! Unless it's liberal, anti-gun money. Another shocker: liberals lie! So being bipartisan won't provide you any cover, they will still attack you. Not to say never go bipartisan, but if you can accomplish your legislative goals without their support, ram them through. Just like Democrats do."
And, "Environmentalists care about wildlife. If you define wildlife as meaning virtue signalling their moral superiority." And "Green Energy" my ass.
He then observes: "I was just watching the Sunday Group on Fox News Sunday and Juan Williams, talking about the damage to the reputation of the Supreme Court, ran down a long list of institutions whose reputations have been damaged from either attacking Trump or being attacked by the Left for not attacking Trump and cited this as evidence that Trump is a horrible president and a horrible man. In other words, 'We had to destroy these institutions in order to try to destroy Trump. And the fact that these institutions have been destroyed is proof that Trump should be destroyed.'"
As if there weren't enough cause to boycott the new Star Wars on its own badly-written demerits.
For years I have postulated the use of drugs by tyrannical totalitarian governments to suppress and control populations. Where could I ever have got such an idea.
Years ago I wrote "Private charity has always been more efficient than government" and Michael G. sends evidence to support that assertion.
Which segues to suicide bombings in 3, 2, 1....
To say nothing of massive vote fraud.
But speaking of soul-crushing debt, there's nothing holding it up.
"...[A]ccording to the [CDC]’s own standards, [CDC] should be treated as 'unstable and potentially unreliable.'"
The city of San Francisco has been run by Democrats for the last half-century. How's that working out?
Burn all the government schools, all around the world.
Michael G. sends, The Watermelon: Green on the outside, Red on the inside.
It's not paranoia or hyperbole if some of this is already happening.
Immigrants Contributing MASSIVE "ACCIDENTAL" VOTE FRAUD to Society
Enemy action in Tennessee.
Someone is doing something about all that media bias and entertainment rot:
And there's this too.
Over the past couple weeks (of riding-in-vans-with-morons) I've been rereading some of Keith Laumer's original Bolo stories, and William H. Keith's Bolo Brigade, and now I'm starting a reread of John Ringo's The Road to Damascus, which I recall reviewing as a horror story, with the Clinton Years in very recent memory, and even more hateful division rising as I type. I began inventing my Jeffersonian Republic several years before that novel was published, but it has influenced later developments, not least my fictional future Constitution - and Bolos, of which I've always been fond, have obviously influenced my current protagonist, Aurora. Speaking of which, the not-a-rewrite feels finished; small changes were made to the Sherrington Atrocity story arc, and necessarily-larger ones to the current Blood Rose arc, so if anyone cares I've updated those files and you can go reread them now. Now that I'm back on the narrative rails I can get back to work on the next chapter, and the one after that, which will close the loop, and then return to the main story.
Codrea examines a peaceable assembly.
On campus, Michael G. sends oh look yet another fake hate crime. Jobholding, taxpaying, Republican NRA members with MAGA hats don't have the time or energy to bother with such things.
Then, "Maybe colleges can make them wear yellow gun symbols on their clothes."
Which segues to, I don't count this as Lighter News because "we're tolerant and inclusive and don't discriminate based on political ideology so we're going to discriminate against you based on your political ideology."
HEY QUICK WHAT'S GOOGLE'S MOTTO?
Hey remember when objections to gender-neutral restrooms were dismissed as paranoid and homophobic?
And how the AIDS epidemic was some kind of vast right-wing conspiracy?
So now democracy is undemocratic?
MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD
Enemy action in Virginia.
More backstabbing from the Lairds of Fairfax. (Adding Missouri Firearms Coalition to my front and links pages.)
Why racism still exists
IMMIGRANTS CONTRIBUTING TO SOCIETY and that last one segues to:
It is possible to get rights restored.
Red Wave backlash?
Are they finally going to start building the f***ing wall?
Awakening in Brazil?
Think about the kind of people
who don't want you able to defend yourself.
With psychotic delusional bigotry and pure naked Sovietism.
SUICIDE BOMBINGS I TOLD YOU
"A Los Angeles City Council committee approved a motion Monday that would require all city contractors to disclose their percentage of Jewish ancestry"OH. WAIT.
Feminists for Islam
In real-space-enthusiasts-hate-NA$A news, Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "Oh, look! The $enate Launch $y$tem is delayed, again, and is even more over budget than was thought, because of mismanagement and poor oversight by NASA. I’m stunned, I tell you." While SpaceX is planning a crewed launch next year and circumlunar tourism quite possibly before the Giant Tax-Eating Rocket to Nowhere ever flies.
Red Wave backlash
Robot construction workers. Working on it.
WAKANDAhey wait a minute....
THIS HORRIBLE PLACE
While blatantly provably lying about every damn thing.
No, really, they hate us and want us to die and the police are on their side.
There, see? The campaign ads make themselves. If the GOPe has the spine to use the material.
Michael G. sends, "Immigrants vibrantly contributing to Swedish society. Mocking the Swedes over this would be more fun if it wasn't happening here, too."
But that's just an isolated incident right?
And that's not something we need to worry about right?
Uppity in Occupied Colorado tomorrow afternoon.
Aurora, part 87, is 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.
I'm thinking this is not Lighter News because it should be self-evident to sane people: Their way doesn't work and ours does.
Michael G. asks, "If radical terrorism isn't part of Islam, how come anyone who talks about how to prevent Islamists from being radicalized is dubbed Islamophobic?"
Then, "Dem gubernatorial candidate admits existence of voter fraud. And cultural replacement."
Your Epic What-If o' the Day: You could own the rifle which may or may not have once been aimed at George by-God Washington.
IN THIS HORRIBLE PLACE
THE POLICE AND MAYOR ARE ON THE SIDE OF THE MOBS.
Do you want to know why racism still exists? This is why racism still exists. REPUBLICAN NRA MEMBERS WITH MAGA HATS CANNOT IMAGINE ACTING THIS WAY.
Don't Go to College
Aaaaand another show I won't watch anymore.
"Had there been no video, people would be arguing with absolute certainty that she was sexually assaulted...."
"The judge in the case said the false complaint had an ‘insidious effect’ on the confidence of the public with genuine rape complaints."
Hey remember when the National Socialists made it impossible for certain kinds of people to conduct business?
Back here Michael G. suggested that the place where Britain used to be was trying to steal the World Capitulation Championship title from the place where France used to be. Comes now, "French reestablish supremacy as cheese-eating surrender-monkeys: Refuse to honor self-sacrificing hero because it might upset Muslims." Well, as the old joke goes (with, probably, some injustice), "World War I - Tied and on the way to losing, France is saved by the United States. Thousands of French women find out what it's like to not only sleep with a winner, but one who doesn't call her 'Fraulein.' Sadly, widespread use of condoms by American forces forestalls any improvement in the French gene pool."
But the same joke may apply with more accuracy to the place where Britain used to be. America - until the last couple generations of dilution - has been made of people who hated where they were from, or where they were from hated them; it used to be, immigrants wanted to become Americans, and it was the sons of those immigrants who kicked and/or saved the ass of every place their ancestors escaped (Britain having two entries in each of those categories (a third in the second if we count the Cold War ("With the passing of Margaret Thatcher, there are no more men in England."))). We are - were, until anchor babies and taxtheft-funded handouts and massive vote fraud - a continent-wide Nietzschean experiment... and it was working.
No really massive electoral fraud. Which I have previously observed.
Seriously folks, back up your 'puters. I know, it's impractical to back up a terabyte or more of Stuff, but my strategy is to set weekly reminders to back up my browser bookmarks, and more important, to keep all my Stuff on physically separate drives, not just partitions, so if the operating system's drive dies - which the decade-old salvaged Seagate did last night - I'm back in action on the Almighty Internets in a couple hours instead of days (having preemptively acquired a new replacement HDD for the foreseen occasion). Blogbrother SMLE Fan, who has worked in the industry more than I have, strongly recommends Western Digital hard drives, while I can strongly disrecommend Seagate, whose firmware timebombs have eaten my Stuff a couple times over the years. -Oh, and Linux is looking better all the time.
And then I got out of bed and
went back to work.
IN THIS HORRIBLE PLACE.
GOVERNMENT-RUN "HEALTH" "CARE" WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG so I'm still rereading John Ringo's The Road to Damascus and I'm sure it was dismissed at the time as wild right-wing paranoia horror-fantasy and hey look it's Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and all their friends demanding every single totalitarian item on the enemy's wish-list.
And the entertainment rot too. Yes that one got fired but that's not Lighter because there are so many more who didn't and are still pumping out the same garbage.
BURN THE GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS I TOLD YOU
Heeeyyy boycott Uber.
Michael G. sends, "Protesters try to shut down Cal Poly meat processing center: 'One of the leaders of this movement is Zoe Rosenberg, a 16-year-old activist who has already been arrested once this year during a protest on campus back in April. During that protest, she chained herself to a corral behind the meat processing center. Rosenberg is the founder of a rescue for farm animals called Happy Hen Chicken Rescue, and wanted to save one of Cal Poly’s cows from being slaughtered.' I wonder how they would react to an offer to shut down the meat processing center in return for shutting down the local Planned Parenthood and Emma Goldman clinics? Not that I have any intentions of giving up meat."
Then, in the place where Britain used to be, "When you permit your gun rights to be stolen, your pizzas can't be far behind." That... kinda sounds like malnutrition as national policy. To which dot connect their National Health System, and the government death panels Sarah Palin was mocked for warning against. -And in comments I find actual Orwellian Nineteen Eighty-Four-style thought police.
MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD to which Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, adds: "But, but, they keep telling us that voter fraud isn’t a thing! Of course, it goes without saying that the dead vote Democrat - and non-citizens too. But asking for ID or an actual address is racist or something. Even though this isn’t really an issue. And, 'Landeis said residential street addresses have been assigned to every known dwelling in the county, which covers more than 1,100 square miles in south-central North Dakota. "As far as I know, everybody has an address down here," he said. "If they don't, it's very simple to get one."'"
The other day was an unhinged bigot running for office in Arizona, displaying contempt and open hatred for Arizonans (and treason also). Same in Minnesota, and something similar in Virginia, and Occupied Colorado too.
Not sure this is Lighter, except in the decent-people-doing-decent-things sense: "Oath Keepers has received an urgent request from a small town in the Florida panhandle (in the zone of destruction from the hurricane) to provide armed security in an anti-looting security operation for the town. This request came from the town Mayor and from the town Fire Chief."
Couple years back I wrote "Our medical technology can repair almost any injury, cure almost any disease - and everyone can afford it because government has stayed out of the way of its development." TrumpKeepsHappening. Yes I'm ticked about bump stocks and stop-and-frisk which is still unConstitutional even when applied to criminal gangs of racist thugs but still, net gain.
Likewise, private enterprise can Do A Whole Thing for less money than just the cost overrun of a government program. Wasn't there something a while back about how SpaceX had developed the entire Falcon program for less than the cost of a single NA$A $huttle launch?
If you're not stockpiling ammunition you're not paying attention.
Because the police are on the side of the mobs.
TRUMP GODSDAMMIT STOP you know I never wanted a bump stock, I still don't, they're wasteful of ammunition which costs money which I'm always struggling with, and a rifle is a precision instrument, not a garden hose. But by the gods if that's what you want to spend your money on you go right ahead and do it and f*** anyone who says you can't.
To which dot connect, years ago there was a report of a homeowner in the place where Britain used to be getting punished by the government for putting up barbed wire to deter chronic burglaries which that same government declined to do anything about. Comes now, "Spain is to remove razor wire from border fences in north Africa to prevent serious injuries to migrants who storm the barriers."
But that's not something we need to worry about... right?
"It is understandable why [Boca magazine writer Randy] Schultz would ignore Florida gun laws before 1968. They were designed to keep black people disarmed."
THINK ABOUT THE KIND OF PEOPLE WHO DON'T WANT YOU ABLE TO DEFEND YOUR HOME FROM THEM.
But on the other end of the bell curve this is why racism still exists. -Bill Cosby was on a kind of campaign about this stuff, before the lifelong Democrat was revealed and eventually convicted as a serial rapist....
The usual lies and discrimination in Missouri.
The First and Second Amendments are linked. Think about the kind of people who don't want you to exercise either of them.
Yyyyyeah I have more Cherokee (and according to family oral history, Sioux) blood than this lying statist.
I never did care about the National Felon League.
Michael G. sends, "Dem lies about Georgia suppressing votes could end up suppressing votes. In Georgia, democrats are falsely saying that voter registrations with a certain clerical notice won't be allowed to vote. All they have to do to vote is show a valid ID, which is the requirement for ALL Georgia voters. But the democrat hype might cause them to stay home instead."
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends more entertainment rot: "Wacky leftists. Daniel Craig carries baby, Piers Morgan says 007 has been emasculated, and I’m confused. I thought our progressive friends wanted to destroy masculinity, so Piers should be thrilled. Hypocrisy, stupidity, idiocy, or all of the above?" Not that either of them are on our side.
So yesterday I was comparing police to Hitler's brownshirts, pointing out how they'll be disposed of after serving their purpose. In support of which Michael G. sends, "Liberal Asians on college discrimination lawsuit. It's more important to advance liberal agenda than interests of individual Asians. Where have I heard something like that before? Oh, yeah, feminists talking about individual women, Black activists talking about individual blacks, Hispanic activists talking about individual Hispanics, etc., etc."
Which he immediately segues to, "Sen. Heitkamp outs domestic abuse victims without their permission. And some who weren't domestic abuse victims. But it was in the interests of 'Women' so it doesn't matter that it hurt the interests of individual women." And I'm still rereading The Road to Damascus and its chillingly-accurate step-by-step brainwashing of an entire population by genocidal sociopaths who see individual human beings as disposable.
And lest that be seen as hyperbole Michael adds, "You know how the left is always pushing free vocational training? See you in camp." Yes, I've called for and written about similar measures but you know, if a government can do that to one kind of people, they can do it to any kind of people.
Complete with Orwellian thought police.
Bears repeating: 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 they keep proving me right.
Regardless, TrumpKeepsHappening. Hillary would be ordering airstrikes on US soil by now and Bernie would be approaching the Soylent phase.
Personal air transport. Working on it. Though burning the FAA to the ground and salting its bureaucratic earth may be a prerequisite. -And of course f*** New Zealand.
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.
NO REALLY YOU DON'T HAVE ENOUGH AMMUNITION
AND YOU HAVEN'T BEEN USING ENOUGH EITHER
and I thought my Randian dialogue and my treatments of Elysium and Burris might have been over the top but hey there's Puerto Rico's Democrat government deliberately withholding aid from their own people to make the people who sent it look bad, and there's thirty-TRILLION-dollar "health" "care" plans and campaign workers ACTUALLY SHOOTING UP BASEBALL GAMES because they can't have it, AND NOW THEY'RE GOING FULL BROWNSHIRT ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY. The Road to Damascus is proving even more disturbing as a reread, because there's Waco and Ruby Ridge and Elian Gonzalez before publication, and Trayvon and riots and assassination attempts after.
And I live right next to some of those people, and I work right next to others....
In further support of which Michael G. sends "Pelosi falls back on usual Left anti-defense rhetoric to oppose border wall: It's to compensate for Trump and his supporters' inadequate manhood. Just like wanting guns for defense is compensating for inadequate manhood."
Then, "Swedish priorities! Deport a 6 year old Ukrainian orphan living with his grandparents in Sweden, while allowing in thousands of Afghans." What could possibly go wrong.
With, "After getting vet to buy $300K in ads, Facebook takes down his page with no warning. Remember the way victims of Kristallnacht were fined the insurance payments they got to repair the damage? Here is the vet's new webpage."
The next time someone talks about H1B visas and immigrants taking jobs....
Why racism still exists hey guess who's been running Philadelphia for the last 66 years.
Entertainment rot I may not even bother getting that one from the library.
Candidate ratings in North Carolina, and national from Gun Owners of America.
SOME COPS DESERVE TO BE SHOT. And I'll entertain arguments against the word "some".
Sometimes the system works but that's not the way to bet.
Michael G. sends, "More sanity from Hungary. They've just banned the teaching of Gender Studies in their colleges because there are only two genders."
Yes I am ticked about bump stocks and stop-and-frisk and where's-the-f***ing-wall-for-f***'s-sake but still, TrumpKeepsHappening.
IT'S NOT PARANOIA IF THEY REALLY ARE OUT TO GET US
In support of which Michael G. sends "Someone with a big 'But' on free speech. It's a lot of verbiage but to me it reads like, 'We have to destroy free speech in order to protect free speech'. For a self declared smart and educated man he apparently doesn't know that the Weimar Republic tried this exact strategy on the original Nazis, and it failed. Big time." Naturally I see no option for comments....
Aaaaaand on Twitter, publicizing home addresses of people receiving death threats is okay, but cartoons mocking violent murderous fascist street mobs are bad? The question is being asked. -And anyone who gave a one-star review to The Road to Damascus 14-odd years ago should bloody well recognize it as prophecy now.
Entertainment rot watch what you want to watch, not what they tell you to watch.
Interesting court action in Delaware, and in New York-of-all-places. Get 'em.
For the upcoming festivities, build your own anti-materiel rifle. I'm sure some shortcuts could be made, like a Timney or Bold aftermarket trigger, adapting an extractor and those plunger ejectors from some other design, etc. Or, you know, there's always another way.
