The World Sucks

Please help

The Deep State Swamp exists everywhere.

Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "I’m just shocked: Boeing 737 Max software was outsourced. I guess it just proves that you get what you pay for."


Project Gunwalker?


Move-the-deer-crossing levels of ignorance and slander


Your Tax Dollars At Work

Immigrants Contributing to Society to which Michael G. adds, "President of El Salvador accepts blame for migrant deaths: 'We can blame any other country but what about our blame? What country did they flee? Did they flee the United States? They fled El Salvador, they fled our country. It is our fault.'"

With, "California Globe: Lawmakers' Request for Audit of California DMV Killed Despite Suspicion of Election Fraud. As Glenn Reynolds says, 'Despite.'" "The SEIU intervened on the audit request" and haven't those purplebellies also engaged in mob violence?

Followed by, "U of Pittsburgh holds Diversity retreat, with speakers covering the full diversity of thought from far left to extreme left."

Then, "The kind of people Harvard has felt were more moral than Kyle Kashuv."

Burn the colleges

Which is not unrelated to "Stolen valor in a school shooting: 'Eyewitness substitute teacher' wasn't even in the same state and has never worked for that school." The Left lies. About everything. Always.

And, Nabisco has been on the other side for quite some time: "Entertainment rot strikes Oreo. On the rare occasions that I buy sandwich creme cookies I get the cheaper store brands. But if you insist on a name brand, remember Hydrox was the first sandwich creme cookie and Oreo was a copy of them."

  • Remember, peasant, society needs police to protect us from drunk drivers.
  • "...[R]emove[s] all pretense of due process and judicial oversight...."
  • Everything getting worse all the time
  • UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS but only the authorities can be trusted with guns
  • Attempted murder by proxy and why are the actual door-kicking trigger-pulling murderers never punished?
  • "Of course, while you would be responsible for guns that were stolen from you, there was not a single word in the bill that addressed the criminals who steal guns."

    GoFundMe for Andy Ngo. Notice, gays, which side was trying to murder you and which side is raising money for your medical bills.

    Court action in New Jersey of all places. Carol Bowne could not be reached for comment.

    Michael G. sends "Montana Regents to work to protect campus free speech, going around the Dem Governor's veto of a campus free speech bill."

    With, "7th circuit allows due process suit against Purdue to go forward." Not what we've come to expect.

    As for "global" "warming", Michael asks, "Has Al Gore made any recent visits to Guadalajara?"

    Michael G. sends, "Nike shows which side they have chosen: They pull the Betsy Ross Flag theme sneakers because Kaepernick complained. This follows them pulling another shoe after China complained about a pro-Hong Kong freedom tweet by the shoe's designer." And then backlash happens.

    The other day Michael was pointing out some cookie history. The kind of people.

    It is neither hyperbole nor Godwin to observe that this is how the Nazis treated the Jews. They are silencing and erasing our speech, driving us out of business, attempting to murder us in the streets, and have already been openly calling for our extermination.

    Think, again, about the kind of people who don't want us able to defend ourselves from them.

    Meanwhile in Austin, Texas, even more shantytowns and sidewalk-poop.

    And then WAKANDA happens.

    Thought: How long until there's a movement to change the flag of Washington state, or rename the state altogether? Because slavery and white man?

  • Michael G. sends, "Portland police say mayor lied, that he did give them an order to stand down in the face of Antifa. I wonder if they realize that showing they will follow any order doesn't make them look any better than the mayor."
  • It bears repeating that the Left lies about everything always and so do the police.
  • "...[S]tolen drugs, illegal chokeholds, planted evidence, falsified reports...."
  • "Community heroes"
  • A lot of us have been waiting a long time for the rules of engagement to change.

    Michael G. sends, "Berkely course on whether Trump presidency is threat to democracy. Once again, massive projection and epic lack of self awareness." Followed by mob violence. -You know, considering the Founders' views on "democracy" and the current actions of "democrats", I'm okay with "democracy" being threatened.

    And speaking of democrats, Michael follows with "Democrat asserts lèse-majesté law: Should they gain the power to, they will not only force us to eat their crap sandwich, but smile as we do." Which we have seen before.

    To which dot Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, connects "No sense of humor: First a professional racist who dresses like a clown demands people be arrested for making fun of her. Which might have been Lighter News until an eight-year-old girl gets death threats for making fun of a delusional communist. Comment from Larry Correia on Facebook: 'News flash: Moron in a Stupid Hat Declares it Should be Illegal to Make Fun of Politicians. Nation Snorts Derisively.
    'EDIT: I’ve got a unique perspective on this, because I’ve insulted both sides in comedies I’ve written and got to watch the reaction.
    'When I wrote Tom Stranger 1, Barack Obama was president so showed up as a character. I made fun of him. Hundreds of democrat reviewers flipped out. I’m talking got super offended, sputtery angry, ranting, screaming at me, HOW DARE YOU, so on and so forth. Lots of “I really liked this BUT” or “I loved this UNTIL” and then ONE STAR because I insulted their sacred icon.
    'When I wrote Tom Stranger 2, Donald Trump was president. And I made fun of him about as much as I made fun of Obama in the first one. I got a handful of angry republicans, but the vast majority were fine with me making fun of the guy they voted for.
    'So it’s kind of interesting. You can insult republican politicians and republicans still laugh. They are used to being the butt or the joke, and most of them have a sense of humor and can laugh at their team. Not all, but most. The butt hurt are a minority.
    'But when you mock the left, holy moly, get ready for a big time come apart. Because it has been so long since they could be made fun of in comedy, they’ve forgotten how to laugh at themselves.
    'Oh, they’re gonna love Tom Stranger 3.'

    Jacob follows with, "Sounds like a conspiracy to me - Quality with a capital K thinking on display: 'Burkhardt said that offsetting carbon dioxide emissions is a great start, but that non-CO2 emissions such as contrails need to be considered even without a perfect handle on the problem. Using cleaner fuel sources, however, can reduce contrail cloud formation and carbon dioxide emissions simultaneously.
    '"We need to have a look at what estimates we have for radiative forcing for particular areas and include them in policy agreements," she said. "We have to mitigate this, even if we don’t do it perfectly."'

    "In other words, let’s rush into some misguided and probably useless (or even damaging) policy decisions because feelz and a simulation based on who-knows-what assumptions."

    And the hate spreads. 'Ravelry accused the conservative crafters of a “culture of anger” and “us versus them” stance' and then behaved in the exact way they accused others of.

    Just yesterday I was predicting an effort to rename Washington state and then this happens. Yeah I have a different system.

  • This backlash in this horrible place is not Lighter News because "voters" will "approve" new taxes on me to pay for their crimes.
  • Likewise, explain in small words why I have to jump through so many intrusive extortionate hoops for the "privilege" of driving a car.
  • Speaking of extortion, we've seen this before, with bureaucrats ticketing and fining people for handing out water bottles on a hot day, or pouring bleach on donated food for the homeless: Michael G. sends, "How dare you perform a charity that isn't govt. approved or funded!" Government poisons everything it touches and always has.
  • Gun Control
  • Success
  • Stories
  • Emphasis on control.
  • TRUMP GODSDAMMIT and of course it has "a carve-out for law enforcement officers... on or off duty."
  • Would that be the same officers who engage in "Withholding evidence, animal cruelty, breaking and entering, assault with a deadly weapon, trespassing, damage to private property, and kidnapping"?
  • Oh look yet another serial sexual predator with a badge AND ALL HIS "BROTHERS IN BLUE" WHO NEEDED NINE INVESTIGATIONS OVER TWO YEARS TO "STOP" HIM.

    'Betsy Ross' - 1777Gadsden - 1775 In CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

    The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen
    States of America,

    When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

    He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

    He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

    He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

    He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

    He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

    He has endeavored to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

    He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.

    He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

    He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

    He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

    He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to Civil power.

    He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

    For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
    For protecting them, by mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
    For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
    For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
    For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighboring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these Colonies:
    For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
    For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

    He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

    He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

    He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

    He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.

    He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

    In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

    Nor have We been wanting in attention to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

    We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by the Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

    (This transcription is taken from the Stone Engraving, the most common form of the Declaration of Independence, with all spelling and punctuation shown as accurately as possible.)

    Michael G. sends "American independence and exceptionalism, as explained by the Kantai Collection-inspired Pacific staff, using the persona of battleship Washington: 'America’s founding is motivated by an idea. Ours was the first where a set of ideas governed the principles behind our government. That idea is pretty simple. Each individual possess their own sovereignty, with a set of unalienable rights granted by God. The role of the government is to safeguard these rights, not to create or dictate or to modulate them.'"

    "No other theory is adequate to explain or comprehend the Declaration of Independence. It is the product of the spiritual insight of the people. We live in an age of science and of abounding accumulation of material things. These did not create our Declaration. Our Declaration created them. The things of the spirit come first. Unless we cling to that, all our material prosperity, overwhelming though it may appear, will turn to a barren sceptre in our grasp. If we are to maintain the great heritage which has been bequeathed to us, we must be like-minded as the fathers who created it. We must not sink into a pagan materialism. We must cultivate the reverence which they had for the things that are holy. We must follow the spiritual and moral leadership which they showed. We must keep replenished, that they may glow with a more compelling flame, the altar fires before which they worshiped." - Calvin Coolidge, 30th US President

    "This fourth of July, celebrate the lives of the great men who brought you what liberty you enjoy."


    The World Sucks

    Democrats stab us in the gut and "Republicans" stab us in the back.

    If the entertainment industry would stop casting people of color in traditionally white roles, that would be great.




    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "I saw the item on the knitting website Ravelry kicking out people for wrongthink and it reminded me about Make magazine and Maker Faire closing down recently. My brother gave me a subscription to Make back when it first started, and while some of the projects were interesting, even back then I didn’t care for the smarmy progressive/leftist attitude in the 'Maker Movement'. What put me off for good was when a 'Maker Space' opened near where I used to live in the mountains of upstate NY. They had all kinds of nifty high precision machine tools, and I figured I would go there and use their precision milling machine to finish an 80% lower, only to find out that they banned anyone from working on 'firearms parts'. This was before the ridiculous NY SAFE act and in the heart of the very red state part of NY (rural upstate NY consistently and solidly votes republican, but since almost 70% of NY’s population is in NYC, it makes no difference at all), where gun culture is very much alive. And the whole thing has only gotten worse since. And now I’m trapped only 10 miles from NYC." (Speaking of which, GhostGunner 10% off sitewide with code "ConquerOrDie".)

    Michael G. sends, "Happy mediocre US Independence day: According to the New York Times the US is, at best, a mediocre country. During Independence week, of course. Big talk from one of the biggest organizations in the push to actually make the US mediocre." And they wonder why their circulation is down.

    Followed by the usual thought police on campus: "Jokes verboten at U Cal Channel Islands. To paraphrase the Ayatollah Khomeini, there are no jokes in progressive education, there is no humor in progressive education."

    Then, "The American revolution was Nazi. Nonsense from a Georgetown professor. I did like Trump Jr.'s response to Nike."

  • "...[T]he gunman had been able to move through offices and fire at fellow city employees without being confronted by another firearm" and whose fault is that?

    In Lighter News

    Michael G. sends backlash on campus: "S. Dakota legislature investigate campus diversity offices: '“It is our hope that the Diversity Offices and related programming will make the proper shift,” wrote the lawmakers. “However, if the current trend continues and Diversity Offices are not reformed...the legislature may be forced to explore options such as Tennessee has adopted that remove funding for these offices all together.”'"

    Speaking of Nazis though.

    Desert Hermit Joel continues learning and sharing valuable lessons in off-grid living.

    Michael G. sends, "On Nike and Betsy Ross, this part I liked: 'Of course not. But what if these groups started wearing T-shirts with the Nike “swoosh” on them? Frankly, I think it would be a brilliant move by these hate groups to do just that. Nike would freak out, giving these attention-seekers a bonanza in free publicity.' If it would be a brilliant move for hate groups, wouldn't it be just as brilliant for groups falsely accused of being hate groups, like Oathkeepers? The rest of it is pretty much wasted ink, it is Jonah Goldberg after all."

    Followed by, "Democrats' good government in Flint: Rescind water pipe replacement contract from lowest bid company with history of successful on time work completion in order to give it to politically connected company with history of sloppy failure to complete work on time." Which I have also pondered.

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "Swedish woman arrested at UK's Gatwick airport on suspicion of terrorism. Somehow, I suspect her name isn’t Inga."

    In my fictional future history I postulate a society which lives largely "off-grid". Unfortunately this society has a grid and you can't just get rid of it with a stroke of a psychotic pen.

    To which dot Michael G. connects, "Renewable energy is a joke. Unless you deny data, physics and math." (Although there's a guy in Arizona doing real nuts-and-bolts work in that field.)

    Michael also sends, "IL State Fair cancels Confederate Railroad concert because of their name. Remember when the Left would mock all conservatives because a few yahoos would try to ban Black Sabbath because of their name?"

    Followed by, "Harvard backlash over Flint water, Former GOP gov. of MI withdraws from fellowship author. Pretty ironic when placed next to yesterday's story about the Dem city council of Flint being more interested in extracting graft from the water crisis than fixing it."

    Which naturally segues to, "What it is like to attend college when you aren't a proto-commie." Might as well drop the "proto-". "Other conservative students have been targeted in this way. Several friends in the spring of 2017 said they felt violently threatened by peers and refrained from speaking about their political views out of fear." Don't go to college.

    Likewise, "UVA GOP livid about dis to Jefferson. But they aren't surprised."

    With, "Antifa attacks free speech rally, hands out guidelines on how media is allowed to cover them." But they call us Nazis.

    And, Important news about VPNs. What's "Big Brother" in Cantonese?

    Just yesterday Jacob. N. sent a "Swedish" immigrant contributing to society and now Michael sends another. "He must figure they've gotten so far in Sweden they no longer need to lie about it."

    You know... Muslims have always been uncivilized mass-murderers. It's not "racist" or "Islamophobic" if it's true.

    Michael G. sends, "If you will money to a college, they will follow your wishes. And they will respect you in the morning. Tip: If you are giving money, give it to a college that won't have to be sued to follow the contract, even if they aren't your alma mater." 'Then-business school Dean Bruce Walker called the Austrian school “quite controversial”' to which dot connect yesterday's report that the Holocaust was an "opinion". The Long March Through the Institutions is not a paranoid conspiracy theory.

    Michael follows with, "When you're convinced you're right, you're allowed to do anything. What are the odds that the UK response will not be to penalize those putting the airport at risk, but instead banning drones from all the people who don't put the airport at risk?"

    And even more fake hate crimes.

    Blogbrother SMLE Fan observes, "I'm pretty sure we're not gonna get Title I suppressors and smgs until the school system is fixed." Or, you know, something else happens. :(

    Serial child-molesters for gun control.

    Think about that.

    "Remember Pizzagate? It’s all tied together and it’s huge."

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "Diversity at any cost: Apparently, the Australian government panel in charge of mining safety and regulation stopped meeting last year because there weren’t enough women on it, and therefore no safety cases have been heard, and this has apparently led to a number of fatal mining accidents. Let’s parse this a bit: a progressive leftist government shut down a regulatory oversight agency because of a lack of women serving in it, and so the government regulation so beloved of the progressives failed and people died as a result." Like bridges collapsing in Florida and Virginia because the designers (or managers) were quota-hires, or a US Navy destroyer getting rammed by a freighter because the officer on duty was a quota-hire, or a Norwegian frigate sinking because the navigators were quota-hires, or firefighters physically unable to do their jobs because they're quota-hires. (And a 51-year-old white straight male can't get a job hit that PayPal button plzthx)

    Michael G. observes, envirofascism kills.

    Massive Vote Fraud

  • Who do you call when the government is stealing your house?
  • Remember, peasant, only police can be trusted with guns. Because they have all that training.
  • Jacob N. sends "More poor decisions from the bench: This is a terrible ruling. Why is buying from Amazon marketplace any different in concept from buying from a newspaper classified? No one in their right mind would think that the newspaper should be liable for dodgy crap you bought from some anonymous joker through a classified ad. Following logically from this ruling, eBay would be responsible for all the worthless junk that’s sold, which also insane." Which segues directly to firearm manufacturers and ammunition sellers being "responsible" for crimes committed with a stolen gun.
  • Michael G. sends Trump godsdammit, I guess: "Appeals Court Rules Trump Can’t Block Annoying Twitter Users. He notes that this decision kills Twitter's terms of service, if the First Amendment applies to Trump's account, it applies to every account." Doing a thing one complains about others doing is what the Left does. And no, he shouldn't use an executive order to force pharmaceutical companies to lower prices either.
  • The next time you see blue lights in your mirror, understand you are about to be attacked by a child-molester and a child-murderer who expects to get away with it.
  • And lest that be seen as slander remember in this horrible place the police are on the side of the mobs, in Seattle the police are on the side of the child-molesters, and now the rot is spreading to Denver. ..."Now"? This has probably been going on throughout the law enforcement community for quite some time.

    Followed by, "Measles spread at UCLA by employee. Ah, college, that bastion of modernity and progress."

    And euphemistic censorship.

    Then, "Michigan State U employees must pay to attend Multi-Culti seminar. Is this something like the ChiComs charging you for the bullet used to execute you?"

    In burn the government schools news, Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "Again with the double dealing government. Kids must go outside for exercise and health, mandates the government. School sends kids out to play. Kids make noise on the playground, same government orders playground closed."

    Jacob follows with "Sportsball weirdness: I don’t care much for professional sports, but this whole underpaid women in soccer thing seeped into my awareness. I have a few things to say about this. First, why does the government subsidize sports at all? Next, as the article points out, World Cup players get paid a share of revenue. The men’s team has enormously higher revenues than the women’s team, so of course they have a much higher absolute take home. However, the men get 7% of the revenue and the women get 23%, so proportionally, they get paid much more than the men. So, the solution is for the women to increase the popularity of their sport so their revenue increases. Perhaps their, um, charmingly foul mouthed captain should consider that insulting half of the people in a country that’s already pretty indifferent to soccer is probably a bad idea."

    As if the subversion of Star Wars and now their own iconic source material weren't enough, another reason to boycott Disney.

How many lives did this costumed thug destroy?" And how many of his "Brothers in Blue" are doing the same thing right now?
  • Compare and contrast. A innocent citizen is attacked without provocation because of the color of her skin and the attacker doesn't even spend a night in jail. One of the Only Ones gets breathed on and the whole library gets thrown at the offender.
  • Remember, peasant, police are community heroes who exist to protect and serve you. OR ELSE.
  • Remember, peasant, only police can be trusted with guns. Because they're so mature and professional.

(Jacob N. adds, "Not that I think that possession of heroin should be illegal (nor do I), but since it is: cop ODs on heroin while on duty and gets rehab (and, I'm sure, paid administrative leave and a pension).

    Children as stage props. Child abuse.

    Treasonous, seditious, mob violence. And the police in this horrible place will arrest and punish anyone who defends himself.

    Not unrelated, the 1990s were a dark time, leading to my own awakening. Things are different today, but if any one of the child-raping communist clowns gets into power we'll be right back there. You don't need more guns, you need more ammunition, you need to use it for more practice, and you need more physical fitness. Unfortunately everyone I could count as "tribe" either lives thousands of miles away or has already had two heart attacks.... -Yeah I'm'a go hike to the store for those canned peas on clearance, and a couple loaves of bread.

    Lemme just pass along that 'The firearm homicide rate for white Americans is 1.7 per 100,000, which is identical to the Czech Republic and lower than countries like Canada, France, and Austria, which, to be fair, have their own issues with “diversity.” The firearm homicide rate for Hispanics in the United States is 6.4 per 100,000, or nearly four times that of white Americans. The firearm homicide rate for blacks in the US is 19.8 per 100,000, or eleven-and-a-half times that of whites' and nobody wants to talk about that.

    Michael G. sends, "Climate Change Activists Disrupt UK Cities With 'Summer Uprising'. Cut off all their utilities and confiscate any motorized vehicles they own. Make them live up to the standard they want for the rest of us." ...Which I seem to recall was the conclusion of a Tom Clancy novel, with bioterrorists who wanted to depopulate the planet dumped in a jungle to die under their anti-technological principles.

    He then asks, "Who killed the elderly civil rights activist icon? Hint: It wasn't a MAGA hat wearing, GOP voting gun owner."

    Followed by, partly Lighter because it exists but less so because it's necessary, "Preview of must-see movie: No Safe Spaces, about the left assault on free speech."

    It really does seem like there's a concerted and deliberate effort to deconstruct and subvert all forms of entertainment.

    No, really, Democrats are the party of terrorism.

Straw and bag bans do more harm to the environment and economy than the straws and bags ever did. Who could have known? Oh, yeah: anyone, if they had studied the issues logically before passing the laws!" Yeah, somehow I ended up with one of those metal straws, in snailmail spam as I recall, and I've never used it. Plastic shopping bags, however, I reuse at least once, as garbage bags. I deliberately save them for that purpose. Other times I use them to wrap things I don't want to get wet, or I take them to gun shows for customers when I sell brass or parts.
