The World Sucks

"Authorities in Midland-Odessa, Texas, have yet to identify the mass shooter..." gosh I wonder why.

And then this happens and nobody wants to talk about it.

And then this happens and nobody wants to talk about that either.

Michael G. sends, "Speaking of trusting bridge designs, you now have an additional reason to avoid Australia."

Followed by, "Now that Epstein is dead, maybe we could rename Montgomery County for his island."

With, "FEC chair wants govt. power to support big tech bias. As they said in the religious wars, 'error has no rights', and if you aren't left you're wrong."

Just a few days ago was news that it's acceptable to demonize certain kinds of natural human rights and now Michael G. sends "Have you now, or at any time, touched a firearm or something representing a firearm? That's what things seem like these days."

Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "Freezing to death in caves. The eco-fascists came for the meat, and then the meat substitute, now they want to make sure you freeze to death, in the name of 'renewable energy'. I’m feeling particularly trapped in NY lately, especially now that I live only 15 miles from the hell that is NYC rather than in my former mountain fastness." And of course I'm still stuck here in Portland, with screaming crazy sidewalk people all around and a girlfriend-beating probably-drug-addled probably racist pounding on the thin hovel wall near midnight, and calling the police in this commie-hippie town is a bad idea.

International Lord of Hate Larry Correia also observes the libeling of John Campbell by people who endorse pedophiles.

Oh look, racism.

  • About a week ago I noted Christensen Arms licking the badge, gushing about a partnership with law enforcement who will use their products to confiscate their other products from their other customers. Now Davidson's Gallery of Guns is offering a Christensen Arms rifle for their weekly giveaway. Well, there's another email I'm unsubscribing from. I wonder if it has an H-S Precision stock?
  • Coming soon to my door? "Protect" and "Serve" WHO?

    In Lighter News

    THIS IS HOW IT'S SUPPOSED TO WORK THINK ABOUT THE KIND OF PEOPLE WHO THINK OTHERWISE.

    "The only thing that we know is effective to reduce gun violence is to increase gun ownership."

    QUISLING

    A while back I made a meme and now Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "So Comrade Warren Wilhelm, AKA Bill Deblasio, and his pal King Andrew I, AKA governor Andrew Cuomo of New York, are rapidly running out of other people’s money to spend on giving out crap." There's Nothing Holding It Up. Where will you be when the EBT cards stop working?

    Michael G. sends, "Millionaire Model Agency Boss and Close Friend of Jeffrey Epstein Has Disappeared. That's not suspicious or anything."

    Followed by, "Gun control is racist. An attempt to teach true history to USA Today readers." Again with the chainsaw-bayonet people? Really? Even if only sticking a toe in the water and yanking it back out.

    With, the blackshirts next door.

  • Backpedaling on the student discriminated against for exercising natural human rights but not Lighter because they thought they could get away with it. "The SRO who was present agreed that the Safe 2 Tell system is sometimes used inappropriately by students wishing to anonymously seek revenge on another student." Surprisingly.
  • GUN CONTROL
  • SUCCESS
  • STORIES
  • Michael G. sends, "Defining the Tueller drill out of existence: Another 'conviction no matter the facts' tactic of prosecutors."
  • Remember, peasant, only police can be trusted with guns.
  • And remember they like to hurt people
  • and that's why they become cops
  • BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEIR "BROTHERS IN BLUE" WILL PROTECT THEM.

    The World Sucks

    NEVER ONE OF US.
    NEVER.

    TRUMP GODSDAMMIT

    Michael G. sends "Call to destroy the lives of gun rights protectors. Made by what MSNBC wants us to believe is a 'conservative'." Like the Nazis treated the Jews.

    Aaand psychotic racist delusions. White people aren't shooting people in Chicago because we're too busy going to work to pay taxes to refill your EBT card, YOU RACIST PARASITE.

    But they call us insane.

    Genocide is not hyperbole.

    Because they really believe.

    Michael follows with, in the Protein Wars, "Australian vegan sues neighbors to force them to live the way she wants. She's lost, so far, but the fact that she's allowed to continue this farce is a bad sign."

    Michael then asks, "How bad is Portland? So bad that not even Boston will tolerate Antifa the way Portland does."

    Nazi collaborator against self-defense. Surprisingly.

    BOYCOTT WALMART

  • Michael G. sends "The future those opposed to self defense want. And they'll even sacrifice one of their own to get it."
  • Followed by, "A conservative plan to reduce shootings" but what caught my eye was "Republicans in the Senate refuse to go on offense and hold a vote expanding the right to carry universally in all 50 states."
  • Because the GOPE doesn't want the peasants to have guns either.
  • "If criminologists have the guts to even talk about a race-crime connection, it's behind closed doors and in guarded language." I'm living on the other side of a thin slum wall from a potential example and the police have proven they'll be on his side.
  • And then WAKANDA happens.
  • Never trust a cop of any kind.
  • Because I keep calling them homicidal sociopaths
  • and I keep saying the system exists to protect them from their victims
  • AND THEY KEEP PROVING ME RIGHT.
  • GUN CONTROL SUCCESS STORY and, judging by "19-year-old man", "another young man" I'm betting it's an Immigrant Contribution to Society too.
  • By which I mean, scrolling down the previous article, Two Brits beaten and one stabbed by ‘ten Kuwaitis’. Gosh I can't imagine what could be causing this wave of violence LET'S BAN MORE THINGS.
  • And then people tell us we should be more like China.
  • Or Argentina.
  • Or Mexico.
  • SO F***ING IGNORANT
  • "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"OH. WAIT.

    In Lighter News

    Someone to vote for in Hopewell, Virginia. Likewise, AR15 fundraiser, either 80% or FFL.

    Michael G. sends a thing that reminds me of the quote attributed to Winston Churchill, which goes something like: "Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most will pick themselves up, dust themselves off, and continue as though nothing had happened."

    In my fictional future history militia service is optional, but there's peer and societal pressure in favor of it.

    BOYCOTT WALMART see also

    Yet another GOA national alert click it people in Hong Kong wish they could.

    Michael G. sends, "Anti-ICE group is astroturf and likely a Palestinian front. Expect them to blame the US immigration policy they demonize on Israel."

    Followed by a slew of Timely Visual Aids.

    Then, "USC declines Constitution course, keeps 'Tailgating 101'. So much for the importance of college to civil education." And soul-crushing debt.

    With, "Media Ignore Soros’ Lobbying for Gun Control in 2019." Because of course they do. "Can't collectivize the kulaks if they still have guns."

    Can't tell policy from parody anymore. Which segues to,

    Got yer "buyback" right here. Which segues to

    Your Tax Dollars At Work. Which I have also pondered. And you know, I did buy the ten-pound sack of rice (or was it twenty?) and the four-pound sack of mixed frozen vegetables to go with those sixteen pounds of frozen skinless boneless chicken breasts for my cultural appropriation. And the teriyaki sauce was on clearance for a fraction of its regular price also. And I spent my own damn money doing it. Which I worked. To earn. (And the same argument could be extended to the PayPal donations I receive. If you find my fictional future history entertaining or anything on my YouTube channel useful there's buttons on the top or bottom of most pages on this site thanks.)

    Another instance of the entertainment industry harboring predators.

    GENOCIDE IS NOT HYPERBOLE

    Because the interchangeability and disposability of human life is the goal.

  • Berlin declares Jews to be enemies of the StateEXPLAIN THE MORAL OR FUNCTIONAL DIFFERENCE.
  • And as if on cue.
  • Oh look yet another sadistic back-shooting murderer with a badge.
  • AND THEIR LITTLE DOGS TOO.
  • Think about the kind of people who want to become cops.
  • WHAT ARE WE PAYING FOR HERE?
  • "PROTECT" AND "SERVE" WHO?

    Missouri restored Constitutional Carry not long ago and now they're getting uppity again.

    IT WILL NEVER BE A REPUBLICAN NRA MEMBER WITH A MAGA HAT.

    FAIRFAX TRUMP RINOS GOPE GODSDAMMIT

    "Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."

    Michael G. sends, Boston Herald calls for Antifa to be declared a hate group. Of all people. Would now be a bad time to point out that every Democrat Party presidential candidate has refused to denounce Antifa?

    And as if on cue, "Omar accuses Star Tribune of bigotry. Because when backed into a corner they couldn't get out of they reluctantly reported actual news, for a change."

    To which dot connect, "Bloomberg tries to pretend man they got fired wasn't rehired."

    More than a decade ago (sigh) I pondered the government policy of reintroducing, or restricting the realistic control of, dangerous predators. Michael now sends, "8 yr old CO boy survives mountain lion attack. Probably because he fought the lion and his father responded with aggression, though the aggression would have worked even better with a weapon, preferably a firearm." Which is increasingly difficult for decent people to obtain in Occupied Colorado. On the lighter side though, "What did you do on your summer vacation?" "WRASSLED A MOUNTAIN LION AND PUNCHED IT IN THE FACE." May his tribe increase.

    Followed by, "Is this religion of peace, immigrants contributing to society, or union thuggery? Or should I embrace the power of 'And'?" Which segues to:

    Immigrants Contributing to Society which segues to

    "Religion of Peace" Feminists for Islam

    Walmart and Kroger (with many associated brands like Fred Meyer) should be boycotted for their discrimination, although the problem could conceivably correct itself: I'm reminded of a recent webcomic.

    Don't Go to College soul-crushing debt for nothing

    IT'S NOT PARANOIA IF BIG BROTHER REALLY IS WATCHING YOU.

    Aaand entertainment rot. Which segues to

    "Racist."

  • Think about the kind of people who want to become cops. Note comments also.
  • Think about it.
  • "Haven't we seen enough evidence to stop buying into the special 'Only Ones' privileges and immunities lie? ... Perhaps if you want my help, you ought to act like you deserve it." Hmm, my own fictional future Constitution may need adjustment on that point.
  • But remember, peasant, only police can be trusted with guns.
  • GUN CONTROL SUCCESS STORY
  • Oh look the kitten-stomping baby-burning sociopaths of BATFE are changing the rules, again.
  • LIKE THEY'VE DONE BEFORE and Vegas still stinks.
  • "PROTECT" AND "SERVE" WHO?

    In Lighter News

    Michael G. sends "A reminder of what America is."

    Followed by the anniversary of the death of a heroine. Compare and contrast to, for example, Broward County.

    Blogbrother SMLE Fan notes that yesterday was Tom Kratman's birthday.

    Secrets of the Gun Culture! You won't hear about that from MSNBC.


    5923 Friday, 6 September 2019:

    The World Sucks

    Saw a bumper sticker today: "When did helping the poor become a sin?" When you steal my money at the point of a government gun to do it, that's when.

    Timely Visual Aid.

    F*** WALMART AND SEVERAL OTHER COMPANIES

    Fairfax you ignorant slut

    BURN THE GOVERNMENT CHILD SEXUAL PREDATION SCHOOLS

    Michael G. sends, "McCain is right, confiscation would lead to violence: 'They would not do so because Meghan McCain gave them the idea. They would do because this is what happens in America when prohibitions are tried.'"

    Followed by, "This is just the kind of thing that Walmart is trying to prevent with their new policy."

    Then, "A review of the CNN climate town hall: 'Let me sum it up: the CNN show revealed that the left is comprised of totalitarian morons.'"

    With, "UT-El Paso prof shows how to spot white supremacy. Calling a mass murderer evil? That's a white supremacist. Denouncing white supremacy? That's also a white supremacist. I'm guessing everyone who disagrees with her is a white supremacist." Showing up to work on time, sober, with no outstanding warrants, and actually doing the job without stealing from the employer and/or customers? It's not racist if it's true and I'm getting damn tired of being called a racist by racists.

    And, "If govt. doesn't respond to trouble, no one will! Turns out the 'bystander effect' is also a load of crap. Funny how all this sociology crap always calls for more power for government, less for individuals."

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "Today’s Litany of misery: First up on the list, Comrade Bernie wants to abort the third world, because 'climate change'. And the Authorized Journalists lap it up, and ignore the blatant eugenics attitude there? (Let us recall Margret 'abort the black babies so they aren’t a drain on society' Sanger here.)
    "Next, in the Protein Wars, Kamala 'Slept her way to the middle' Harris wants you to know she really enjoyed her pork chop at the Iowa state fair, and wants you to know that she plans on using the regulatory apparatus of the Federal Government to ensure that you can’t have one. Enjoy your Brussels sprouts and arugula, peasant!"
    (And speaking of surplus populations....)
    "And finally, in your very place, it’s once again shown to be OK to assault people, so long as they’re (choose one or more) white, conservative, or wearing a silly hat."
    But remember, peasant, you don't need a gun because police will be there to protect you release your attackers with minimal charges and no bail. There are no good cops.

    Jacob follows with, "Science speaks on the Protein Wars." (I coined another phrase!) "Vegetarianism increases risk of stroke. So it turns out that anything is unhealthy in excess, and that a reasonably balanced diet is probably best for you." Got that covered. Tomorrow, after my almost-52-year-old legs have had some time to recover from getting back into bicycling after closer to two decades than one.

    "But first a couple of ground-rules: 1. Only one side gets to talk. 2. That side gets to make up their own 'facts.'" And the EBT-swipers don't care.

    "...[A]n easy sell to the masses who know little about guns...."

    Because they've been brainwashed.

  • Feds Demand Apple And Google Hand Over Names Of 10,000+ Users Of A Gun Scope App. Really.
  • The next time you see a cop of any kind, remember they are all sadistic lying murderers.
  • But remember, peasant, only police can be trusted with guns.
  • We already know cops consider their pensions to be worth more than our lives. Are they worth more than theirs?
  • "PROTECT" AND "SERVE" WHO?

    In Lighter News

    Virginia Citizens Defense League is among the most active and successful of the state-level organizations, and their work often has national implications, like the restoration of carry in National Parks, and the spreading restoration of Open Carry. They're leveling up and need a little help. And a little more.

    Michael G. sends, "Zimbabwe's Brutal Dictator Robert Mugabe Is Finally Dead at 95." Aaand I'm just gonna put this right here.


    5924 Saturday, 7 September 2019:

    The World Sucks

    F***ing Fairfax

    Michael G. sends "Exactly what War on Guns has been warning Trump about."

    Followed by, "New York State discouraging people from adopting. Pushed by the same people who claim pro-lifers are hypocrites who don't adopt children, which at least up to now is a lie."

    To which dot connect even more baby body parts for sale - fresh!

    With, "Is that a mandatory buy back program or pogrom? Pah-tay-toe, poe-tah-toe, right?"

    Have I already linked this immigrant contributing to society? They all blur together.

    Think about the kind of people who run for office as Democrats.

    And of course, your TV is still lying to you.

    Hey I know let's have government run the health care system what could possibly go wrong!

  • Hey I know let's bring back Prohibition what could possibly go wrong!
  • Think about the kind of people who think Big Brother is a good idea.
  • Discrimination in Idaho. Donate.
  • Michael G. sends "Chicago: A hellhole for parole, free bail, and jailbreak for violent gun felons. But it's all the fault of the NRA and MAGA-hat-wearing gun owners."

    Yeah my legs and butt hurt but at least I'm not paying a hundred bucks a month to ride the bus anymore.

    While Walmart, Kroger, CVS, Walgreen's, and many other store chains are discriminating against innocent people, Michael G. observes one who isn't. And there's a photo of an AR right there on their front page. Alas, the nearest such appears to be in Missouri....

    New record!

    "Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."

    This timely visual aid would be Lighter News if it weren't, you know, true.

    Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends, "I think I know what happened to my rocket belt and flying car." Government Makes Everything Worse Forever. All human progress is in spite of government. Which I have also pondered.

    To which dot Michael G. connects, "Most of the bad health reactions to vaping involved vaping THC. It likely is the oils used to suspend the THC, but no one can be sure because of government blocking research due to the war on drugs. So, do it again, harder!"

    With, "While they rot entertainment from within they stab each other in the back. It really is a den of scorpions." And they wonder why no one is buying their DVDs.

    Michael then asks, "Can we make Red Flag laws worse? D. J. Jaffe says, 'Hold my beer and watch this!' And National Review publishes it. Admitting that someone who can't be trusted with a gun can't be trusted without a keeper, he then wants to use the same slipshod methods for taking guns to assign people to keepers." Who gets to define "crazy"?

    Followed by, "Wesleyan U Prez: Safe Spaces promote intellectual diversity. Another progressive opposites day." And soul-crushing debt for nothing.


    In Lighter News

    Michael G. sends a little backlash in Spain: "Spanish farmers drive off Vegans trying to 'free' their rabbits." With other such incidents mentioned in the article.

    MidWestReader sends product review: "There was not much of interest at the attached gun store, other than the new IWI 'Masada' service pistol. It is a polymer-framed striker-fired fullsize 9mm, very similar to every other polymer-framed striker-fired fullsize 9mm. The noteworthy aspects are:
    "It resembles, cosmetically speaking, a combination of all the least pleasing lines of the Ruger SR9, the Remington RP9, the old Walther P99, and the SIG P320, which is to say it's not very pleasing to the eye, but it points and balances well, and every review praises its reliability, other than the occasional failure to lock open on the last shot in the first hundred rounds or so--perhaps it is set up to run Israeli milspec 9mm ammo, which was always pretty hot stuff, intended primarily for open-bolt SMGs
    "It seems a few ounces lighter than the roughly equivalent Glock 17 or S&W M&P9
    "The frame seems very slim for a doublestack 9mm; the sides of the grip frame are very thin polymer indeed, and make a hollow 'tock tock' sound when tapped with a finger
    "It comes with multiple interchangeable backstraps for different size hands, like just about every other modern design
    "It doesn't feel quite like the same glass-filled polymer everyone else is using, though that could have been a peculiarity of that specific sample--the plastic feels lighter, less dense, more rigid, maybe a bit brittle--additional fiberglass reinforcement, maybe? or carbon fiber instead?
    "The molded-in stippling on the grip is minimal and I would have preferred a coarser, deeper, more aggressive pattern, but it seems adequate; at least there are no finger grooves
    "The magazines look very much like magazines for the S&W M&P9 with a different shaped floorplate, but we are told they are a proprietary design compatible with no other pistol
    "The pistol comes already milled to accept mounting plates for various small red-dot sights, which are included, for those who like that kind of thing, at a much lower street price than Glocks with slides modified for optics
    "The iron sights, Novak-ish in appearance, are slightly taller and blockier than average and I wonder whether they might be intended to clear a suppressor, though I have heard of no threaded barrel variant, or perhaps to co-witness through a compact red-dot's lenses
    "The trigger pull is very Glock-ish, though there is noticeably less takeup, but a somewhat longer reset; break is surprisingly clean, for a polymer gun; the manufacturer says it is set at the factory to six pounds, and I believe it; reset is very tactile and noticeable, all in all the trigger seems pretty usable out of the box if not great
    "The manufacturer's web page says a version with a manual safety is available 'by special order' but don't even have a picture of that model on their web page
    "It seems not bad for $459, though currently that store has S&W M&Ps in 9mm on sale for somewhat less than that."

    The violent criminal racist next door
    seems to be getting increasingly unstable.
    One neighbor tells me he's already
    threatened another neighbor.
    He might vandalize his own property.
    He might steal my mail, steal my packages, hurt my cat.
    My place could get broken into and my property stolen (again)
    while I'm away refilling his EBT card.
    He could murder his girlfriend and try to frame me for it.
    And the police and courts have proven they will be on his side.

    And then I got out of bed
    and went back to work.


    Short-notice action item in North Carolina.

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "I’m not sure what to call it. It’s OK to be racist against white people if you’re having a lousy day. It’s especially interesting coming from an Irish person who is very pasty indeed. Then again, I’m willing to readily dismiss ol’ Sinead, since she’s been deeply deranged for a long time."

    Followed by, "From the clown shown that was the CNN 'Climate Change Town Hall', we present Andrew Yang, who wants to seize your pork chop, your car, your freedom of movement by banning air travel, and wants you to freeze to death in a cave while eating kale. (I really don’t like kale.)"

    Michael G. sends, "Vegan activist who ‘rescued’ 16 rabbits killed nearly 100 in the process. It's the same one from the Spanish farmers story yesterday." If I recall correctly the Humane Society - who are anti-hunting and by extension anti-self-defense - also euthanize some huge percentage more animals than they "save". While misusing funds to Wayne (allegedly) laPierre levels.

    Then, "UCLA prof: 1A, 2A not absolute. 'This is a window into the mind of the left at large. They want to remake America in their image. You’ll also notice that for this professor, all of our problems can be traced directly to Trump.' They are all about power, not rights." And soul-crushing debt for nothing.

    A long time ago I made a bumper sticker and later I made a meme and I was right, again.

    Immigrants Contributing to Society

    "Far be it from me to endorse hate, but as for that billboard, can we have a brief discussion of whether it is actually true?"

    Malicious and conspicuously false reporting.

    Oh look even more psychotic delusional blood libel from the "entertainment" industry.

    Dehumanizing an opponent is a precursor to genocide.

  • The other day I said it was getting increasingly difficult for decent people to obtain realistic means of self-defense in Occupied Colorado and this is what I meant.
  • Michael G. sends, "Parkland dad: Massacre was avoidable, if district hadn’t enabled student." And if the "protectors" hadn't ran and hid.
  • BUT TELL ME AGAIN HOW I'M THE THREAT.
  • Michael follows with the highly-trained professionals o' the day.
  • Remember, peasant, only police can be trusted with guns. Because they have all that training.
  • Remember, peasant, society needs police to protect us from violent sadists.
  • Remember, peasant, society needs police to protect us from violent psychotics.
  • Speaking of crazy people.
  • Oh look yet another sexual predator with a badge SETTING THE TONE FOR HIS DEPARTMENT.

    In Lighter News

    I have, in these pages, bemoaned the lack of Molotov cocktails applied to photo-radar vans and the like. Finally.

    Michael G. sends, Ship Full of Global Warming Fanatics Gets Stuck in Arctic Ice. Yeah like that.

    TrumpKeepsHappening


    5927 Tuesday, 10 September 2019:

    The World Sucks

    "Something must be done! We’ve heard that before." [And so have I.] "And as usual, that 'something' involves curtailing the rights of those who already follow the rules and does nothing to curtail the predatory actions of those who never will."

    "Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort." "Liberals" send actual pallets of actual cash to people who throw gays off tall buildings and cheer when they splat. Conservatives have a different view.

    But there aren't many conservatives in circulation anymore, are there?

    And Trump never was one, was he?

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "Now weeds are because of climate change. This article would be just another slow news day filler, except for this blip they had to throw in: 'And as climate change increases the amount of carbon dioxide in the air, studies have found that the toxicity of plants like jimson weed only increases.' It’s not like jimsonweed is rare, and the fact that some grew in a planter in Manhattan is just a curiosity, but of course climate change has to be the cause, even when it’s irrelevant."

    Jacob follows with, "More unclear on the concept: If I read this right, NJ is planning on making sure they don’t do business with... criminals? I’m pretty sure the laundry list of things they plan on making sure their firearms suppliers do, like background checks, age restrictions, prohibiting sales to mentally ill, criminals, etc, are all already required by both federal and state laws, and any individual or business that fails to abide by the above is, you know, criminal. More worrisome is the leaning on banks to not do business with gun manufacturers or retailers. That’s one of the more insidious gun prohibition tactics, and one that’s hard for Our Kind to fight." Codrea, of course, has more.

    Michael G. sends "Immigrants to Sweden contributing to Danish society."

    Among all that other cultural vibrancy.

    Followed by, Shouting Down a Speaker Isn’t “Lawful Activity”. But they'll keep doing it anyway, along with the occasional felony assault and arson....

    Generations ago some communist said the capitalists would sell him the rope he would use to hang them and Michael sends an example. (Michael follows with the very opposite, which of course Codrea has pondered before. I think I'll make a point of buying more Hornady products. I've been using their bulk .308 150gr FMJBT bullets in CMP competition for years, and my scores have never been the bullets' fault.)

    Then, "Romney might vote for gun registration. Of course he will." Because he's never been a conservative, and we knew it, and that's why we stayed home and cleaned our rifles on his election day.

    And, "Mark Zuckerberg would never steal your data and invade your privacy. If by 'never' you mean 'always'." See also.

    Entertainment rot infects the consumers which of course is the plan. Thirty-plus years ago I was badly hooked on the Marvel Universe, particularly the X-Men and related mutant titles. Marvel is dead to me now. ...And I'm not even looking at the gibberish Episode IX is rumored to be turning into.

    Yet again with Walmart, and VCDL kinda dropped that ball didn't they.

    The list of stores who hate us and want us to die keeps growing.

    When I say Burn the Government Schools....

    ...And the colleges too.

    You know, things really are getting worse all the time. On the sidewalk fifty meters from this keyboard and even on the other side of this thin hovel wall.

    To which dot connect the place where Finland used to be, and the Soylent faction from Sweden.

    And then this happens. It's not racist if it's true.

    Every Sunday a handful of like-minded anti-government extreeeemists gather in a chatroom while half-heartedly listening to the Gun Talk radio program. The host, Tom Gresham, has, to us, a history of compromise and appeasement and a lack of ideological purity - taking Zumbo's side against AR15s (until it blew up in his face), Always Obeying the Officer's Commands, denigrating "people on the internet"... insulting open carry advocates or practitioners. I'm not the only one noticing.

  • Remember, peasant, you don't need a gun because dangerous criminals are being monitored.
  • Think about the kind of people who want to become cops.
  • "Protect and Serve" WHO?

    In Lighter News

    "The top three states for public safety this year are Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire. All three are Constitutional Carry states...." But nobody but us wants to connect those dots.

    Advanced cybernetics have been a trope of science fiction since at least Episode V. I've used them too. Michael G. sends, artificial leg that feels. ...And then this happens too.

Yet it is an obvious fact in the real world that an inefficient, careless, or unimaginative worker can slave for hours to produce an article practically worthless, that the public won't buy, valueless. An intelligent skillful worker may turn out in a short time an article that the public will snap up at once at a high price. Which has the greater value?"

    TRUMP GODSDAMMIT AND RINOS TOO

    Hey remember when the National Socialists were talking about an International Jewish Conspiracy? Different target, same genocide-fantasy.

    And that's not hyperbole.

    In government "health" "care" news, Michael G. sends "Death panels. Or there was a time when arsenic was called 'inheritance powder'."

    To which dot Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, immediately connects: "Let’s give government control of healthcare. What could go wrong? Ashkenazi Jews are 20 times more likely to carry a genetic condition that increases the likelihood and severity of breast and ovarian cancer. Knowledge of carrier status for the BRCA gene allows for better cancer prevention and treatment. So naturally, the NHS in Britain only allows testing if you or a direct relative have already been diagnosed with a BRCA related cancer. Mind you, this test is routine for women in the US." “Dr. Ranjit Manchanda, consultant gynaecological oncologist at Barts Health NHS Trust, said: ‘The current NHS system is set up to prioritise diagnosis and treatment, and is not utilising the full potential of newer technologies for cancer prevention.’” Because why would any tax-eating bureaucrat bother to do that.

    Michael follows with, "Democracy dies in darkness: GWU student paper banned from covering student government forum."

    "Florida’s allegedly Republican Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott are among those demanding we discard what few restrictions on mass immigration we still enforce so that their state can be flooded with Bahamians, most of whom will not vote for them and many of whom will end up riding the welfare gravy train for the rest of their days."

    Back here civilized behavior was called "racist" and comes now more of the same. Which was also observed just the other day.

    The rot is spreading through every facet of society. Nobody knows how to do anything anymore. Nobody THINKS.

    And then I got out of bed and
    went back to work.
    Well at least I have a job again and
    I'm not riding in vans with subliterate criminals.
    Though I do have to dodge a lot of them on the road.

    And then there's this thing I found on the internet:


    Hi [redacted],
    There's been a little difficulty at the delivery end of the [redacted] run. The people at [redacted]'s [redacted] are, shall we say, not goal-oriented.
    Today when I arrived with the load, the very specific racks, on which I am supposed to very specifically place the new [redacted], were still full of yesterday's (or Friday's?) [redacted]. When I objected to this and expressed my expectation that other people would actually do their jobs, I was accused of "harassment".
    [redacted] recently told me that my experience is not unique, and that everyone who has done the [redacted] run has had similar difficulties with the people at [redacted]'s. I find it, bluntly, unacceptable that I can load 365 boxes of [redacted]s in 30-odd minutes, drive a dozen miles, and unload them again in a similar amount of time, but they can't empty those same racks in hours or days. I'm accustomed to working for a living and getting my job done, correctly and on time. Perhaps that attitude has fallen out of fashion in the workforce-at-large?
    The one person I have any meaningful communication with there - I don't know his name - says that it is "nobody"'s responsibility to empty those racks, that the [redacted]s I deliver from [redacted] are "not ours". Which is simply nonsensical. How many months or years has this delivery been a regular occurrence? How can they not have an established procedure?
    Often there are other things in the way, stacks of boxes or other kinds of racks very much in the way of my work, as though no one at [redacted]'s has any expectation or recollection from one day to the next that our company will be delivering hundreds of boxes of [redacted]s every afternoon. If I arrive after 2pm, delayed by traffic or a larger load taking more time to put in the truck, everyone in that part of their building is gone for lunch and no one will open the freight door, meaning I have to go around the long way, making my own way through their building, in order to open the door, in order to make the delivery.
    The customer is not always right. If a customer requests a thing to be delivered to a certain place at a certain time, and then makes it difficult or impossible to complete that delivery, it's not our fault. A while back you mentioned you were having a meeting with someone from [redacted], if I recall correctly. Have you had a meeting with [redacted]'s? Apparently these difficulties have been going on for quite some time, long before I began, and I'm told that everyone who has done this delivery has encountered similar problems. These issues need to be addressed.

    Which reminds me of
    a thought I had last year.

Michael G. sends now, "Nature doesn't care what you believe it is. And here are people lucky enough to survive an encounter while learning absolutely nothing from it."

    Followed by, bears repeating, comic books as partisan brainwashing.

    Michael then adds, "Anti-American propaganda being pushed deeper into public schools. It works so well in college that we need it in high school, middle school and grade school. And what does this lead to?" An entire generation of manufactured sociopaths who will hate who they're told to hate and murder who they're told to murder.

    He then observes, "Government loses money selling pot. Maybe they should have started with something easier, like leading sailors to whore houses?" Oh wait they already tried that.

    He then asks, "You remember all those plague apocalypse stories and movies?" Yeah I still have the latest John Ringo Black Tide Rising novel in ebook on my smartphone.

I dunno, as a physical chemist, I’m a big fan of the DNA based model of gender determination (XX=female, XY=male, other=disorder) but I guess that makes me some sort of degenerate barbarian these days. I’m also very much against euphemism for body parts, we call the genitals by their anatomical names in my household. This has lead to the occasional moment (2 year old yelling in crowded restaurant 'Daddy, my penis itches!'), but I think calling things by the proper terms is very important to avoid the kind of brain melted thinking on display in this article."

    Jacob follows with clinical insanity in "mainstream" media.

    Then, "More from the double standards department. So saying 'Jew you down' isn’t antisemitic because it doesn’t imply hatred of Jews, merely implies frugality. Let’s see a white person use 'n****r rig' and see how long they last. After all, the term doesn’t imply hatred of blacks, merely admiration of their ability to improvise with limited resources."

    To which dot Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, connects "Hypocrisy in the protein wars: Do as I say, not as I do. Ban meat, say the democrats, as they eat 10,000 steaks." The tone-deafness constantly astounds.

    Because what the heck else am I supposed to do.


    Gods how I hate this place.

    PROJECT GUNWALKER

    And Texas also.

    YES FUDD THAT MEANS YOU TOO.

    Remember, peasant, there is no bias on Google.

    Or Facebook.

    Or in climate "research".

    Michael G. sends yet another predator encounter: "Bear tries to force its way into a Tennessee home. It says she picked up her phone, I hope she picked up a gun as well (when seconds count the TWRA is only an hour away). And get a load of the people who weren't there all worried that the bear would be killed (it wasn't)."

    With, "Being falsely accused of rape never hurt anyone. And she's going to get a sociology PhD with a thesis making that claim."

    Then, "NYT's 1619 Project Writer Has History of Anti-White, Anti-Semitic Tweets. I am so shocked." But they call ME "racist".

    With, "The motive of those who want to bring the normies to heel."

    And, of course, Wakanda.

    Feminists! For! Islam!

  • GUN CONTROL SUCCESS STORY
  • Vegas still stinks and so does El Paso.
  • Michael G. sends, "Dems trying to spin that they didn't cheer confiscating guns. Who ya going to believe, me or your lying eyes?"
  • Followed by, "The fiction of non-partisan judges. A fiction we may need as a defense against court packing."
  • With, "Sink the island: UK: Church Leaders Ask Government to Ban Pointed Kitchen Knives. It's pretty dangerous to act like sheep when you have Scotsmen to your north, Welshmen to your west and Muslims scattered through you. They must be pretty confident in their supplies of lubricant."
  • Hey remember when child molesters were hung by the neck until dead? Nowadays they get subsidized. With their victims' parents' taxes.
  • And who will enforce these "laws"?
  • Yet another child pornographer with a badge, that's who.
  • And yet another serial rapist and kidnapper with a badge.
  • Hey I know let's make sure the police have special rights what could possibly go wrong!
  • Hey I know let's have government run the health care system what could possibly go wrong!
  • Armed home invaders kick in doors and murder woman in her bathroom.

    Michael G. sends "A crazy college professor: He's going to teach a course where college students are exposed to competing ideas and will learn to judge between them based on facts and objective reality. What kind of nut job wastes everyone's time with something like that nowadays? And here's wishing for a million more insane college professors like him." False rape accusations in 3, 2, 1....

    The World Sucks

    Codrea observes the passing of a martyr.

    In my Inbox: “He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.” ~ Thomas Paine (1737-1809), US Founding father, pamphleteer, author. The problem is, some people don't even want their own liberty and can't imagine why anyone else would. Which segues to,

    Michael G. sends, "So, just like usual: Dems Will Have To Lie About Their Agenda To Win."

    Followed by, "Book Defending Free Speech Has Been Banned. Of course it was."

    But that could never happen here... right?

    Which segues to, "Fox News joins 'The Truth Must Not Be Spoken' gang. And if they do, what good are they? I can ignore them as easily as I ignore CNN and MSNBC."

    Speaking of "climate" "change", "Oh look, another climate change prediction didn't pan out. That is, the start of the ice ages 15 mya was driven by reduced CO2. Except the marker for reduced CO2 is not present."

    But little Greta-Gaia-Jugend will force her handlers' delusions on the rest of us at the point of their government guns.

    By which is meant, "Politics of, by, and for the seriously disturbed."

    All of which is connected to "Voting fraud does not exist! Like Sarah Hoyt says, vote IN PERSON on ELECTION DAY on a PAPER BALLOT. Don't make it easy for them to steal your vote."

    More people are realizing that going to college is a terrible mistake.

  • GUN CONTROL
  • SUCCESS
  • STORIES
  • And Visual Aid o' the Day.
  • "It is easier to effectively disarm the population, if the doctrine of self-defense is questioned."
  • Michael G. sends, "Feds: Maryland county improperly screened cops for logic, reading ability. I can understand why the federal government thinks illiterate, illogical cops is a good thing." Which we have seen before.
  • Followed by, following the murder of Botham Jean.

    In Lighter News

    Imagine a world where you don't have to beg some bureaucrat bigot's permission to live your own life. Which I have been pondering for several years now.

    Not unrelated, Michael G. sends, Lawsuit against U Mich Bias Response Team reinstated.

    And, "Stanford drops Mandatory diversity. But I'm sure they can find something worse."

    Then, "The only ones who don't have the power: Police officer had to break off a chase because his Tesla patrol car's battery almost ran out. You know those times you don't know whether to laugh or cry? This isn't one of them. Laughing all the way."

    TRUMP GODSDAMMIT

    GOPE GODSDAMMIT

    Action items in Arizona and New York.

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "With friends like these: Columbia University hosts Modern, Moderate, Malaysian Prime Minster, who proclaims it’s cool to hate Jews, crowd laps it up." While calling us "anti-Semitic". "Full disclosure: I attended Columbia for 18 months back lo these many years ago, and it was a pit of leftism and Jew hatred 20 years ago (c.f. Edward Said and Rashid Khalidi, among others), and it clearly has only improved with age."

    Years ago I predicted the unions would try to outlaw robots and a couple weeks ago I was proven right, again and here's an update from this horrible place.

    (But some things there just ain't no stopping.)

    "Climate" "change" visual aid. Which segues to,

    A while back I wrote, "As the wealth of Lii was expressed in food brought by Alran stewards and a couple robots, Jarnil and his aide obviously made an effort at self-restraint; things had gone very badly in Nuce, when supply systems had failed, farmers and ranchers and transport drivers going under the guillotine-equivalent almost randomly."

    No, really, the Star Wars sequels are awful.

    Republican
    NRA members
    With MAGA hats

    Michael G. sends discrimination in Tennessee of all places.

    Followed by, "Oberlin responds to loss by asking court to dox member of Gibson family. The court refuses. What are the odds that it will happen anyway?"

    Similarly, "No good deed goes unpunished by the Locust Street Liar: The local nickname for the Des Moines Register, which is also all-in on gun control."

    With, "Sometimes the cop isn't wrong. I have to wonder why BLM champions thugs like Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and this guy instead of the many actual innocent victims? Are they deliberately trying to polarize rather than persuade and convince?"

  • Buuuut at least as often the cop is a liar and a thief. And too stupid to turn off his camera. Or arrogant enough to keep the recordings as trophies because he expected his brothers in blue to cover for him.
  • GUN CONTROL
  • SUCCESS STORIES
  • Remember, peasant, you're not paying your fair share.
  • Michael G. sends "The only ones controlling themselves: Two off duty cops, each power tripping on what they perceived to be a non-cop. And one doesn't know to keep his booger pick off the bang switch."
  • The official policy of the government of New Zealand is that the natural human right to self-defense does not exist.
  • Remember, peasant, the VA exists to help veterans stay unemployed and homeless.
  • And of course, keep working within their system.

    In Lighter News

    Michael G. sends "A reminder that there are still some real men nowadays."

    Years ago I wrote "[Mobile Infantry] armor had adaptive camouflage, a regenerative nanite swarm programmable to whatever scheme was appropriate, breeding replacements for itself to repair damage." Working on something not unrelated.

    Backstabbing from NSSF, and not for the first time. Who defines "mental health"?

    And as if on cue Michael G. sends "This couldn't possibly go wrong: Research suggests brain exams can detect would-be murderers."

    Followed by The America disassembly manual.

    With, "Baylor U Equity Officer is on the case! Investigating conservatives who dared invite (gasp!) Ben Shapiro."

    Aaaand snowflakes. Melt.

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "Et tu, Mattel? Or is it that Barbie was really Bobby all along? I suspect that this will probably not be a smashing success and will quietly disappear in a few months." One can only hope, but the way things are going these days....

    Who goes to movie theaters anymore? I wait for the library to get the DVD, if I even care. But there is a real danger of yet another conveniently timed mass shooting in a gun-free zone.

    "Schiff's fictionalized version of the conversation will be accepted by those who want to believe it to be true, and they won't bother verifying it."

    Immigrants Contributing to Society

  • Speaking of who gets to define mental health and who gets to enforce "laws", Michael G. sends, "The spirit of Marion Berry lives on: DC government worker charged with dealing fentanyl outside his office."
  • Michael G. asks, "Is even a California legislator this dumb? Or did they do it on purpose and only pretend to be dumb?"
  • Remember, peasant, society needs police to protect us from theft and fraud.
  • Remember, peasant, only police can be trusted with guns. Because they have all that training.
  • Police have been proving for years that their pensions are worth more than our lives. ARE THEY WORTH MORE THAN THEIR OWN?
  • "PROTECT"
  • AND "SERVE"
  • WHO?

    In Lighter News

    Michael G. sends, "Boston College must pay former student $100K for suspending him for a year for a sexual assault somebody else did: 'Doe was ultimately found responsible for indecent battery and assault, the same crime for which he had been arrested and charged. The Suffolk County district attorney's office ultimately dropped the charges in 2014 after forensic testing found none of the assault victim's DNA on his hands, and surveillance footage of the ship revealed Doe was at least four feet away from AB when the assault likely occurred.'" Sometimes the system works but that's not the way to bet.

    Writing a big space battle, and having it make sense, is not easy. Rian Johnson I ain't. Might be some delays.

    Don't go to the movie theater. Where some people want you to be murdered.

    Michael G. sends, "Pope calls for Catholics to have profound conversation on Social Justice. He says, 'the most serious sins are those that are more angelical: pride, arrogance, dominion...' Great! Since I would note that those advocating 'social justice' are prideful, arrogant and demand dominion. Somehow I don't think that is what the Red Pope is talking about."

    Not unrelated, he then asks, "Think there is any chance they will give up their cars? Disconnect from the grid, shut off their central heating? Will their spring break be stay-cations?" See also the kind of psychotic planning that leads to millions of innocent dead.

    Oh look yet another FAKE HATE CRIME.

    Among the more traditional kinds of fake news and psychotic delusions.

    Immigrants Contributing to Society

    There's Nothing Holding It Up

    Are you prepared?

  • Michael G. sends an important First and Second Amendment case in Tennessee of all places. "...[C]learly unconstitutional."
  • From the sidebar of that, Beto Goes to Kent State, Argues Only the Government Can Be Trusted With Guns. Didn't I just say the tone-deafness is astounding. ...Next paycheck, case of XM193.
  • How many times in these pages have I linked news reports of child-rapists and child-pornographers with badges? Bear that in mind as you watch LibertyDoll's report of arresting a 6-year-old girl. By a cop who had previously been arrested and charged with felony child abuse and yet was assigned to an elementary school. Now I have my own thoughts on certain kinds of people but not at six years old. And burnthegovernmentschools.
  • Let's also revisit a woman murdered in her bathroom by armed home invaders and far too many more.
  • Any cop of any kind.

    Michael G. observes, "Goose learning the feeling of Gander sauce: Judge wondering if a President can't block people on Twitter, then why should a congresswoman be allowed to block people on Twitter?"

    TRUMP GODSDAMMIT DANCE WITH WHO BRUNG YA

    Michael G. sends "What the commies think and what they plan for us." '...[T]he Soviets virtually deified Lenin. Criticism of him was routinely referred to as “blasphemy,” while icon corners in homes and institutions were replaced by “Lenin corners.”' I've seen some of those, for Obama, in people's homes right here in this horrible place. Remember this the next time you see a bumper sticker with his symbol, or hers.

    Followed by, "Puberty blocking drugs used on 'trans kids' have killed more than 6,000 people. With compassion like this, who needs hate?" Adding, "NBC disputes puberty blocker story. The problem is, it's NBC. Why should anyone believe anything NBC says?" So fake news is calling real news fake.

    Then, "Just a reminder, Canada isn't a free country."

    Meanwhile in Scotland, "anti-racism" event bans people of a certain race.

    From the Sunday chatroom:

    Wasn't I pondering a conveniently timed mass killing just the other day?

    Because it's not paranoia if they really are out to get us.

    "...[I]f random scumbags can control our ability to speak, it’s only a matter of time before they do it to everybody else."

    Fake news

    Aaand Hillary. Really.

    Michael G. sends, "This is sooo much better than being armed."

    Appropriately followed by "More proof that colleges are attacking freedom. Once they get their hands on students, almost half of those students favor 'inclusive society' over free speech." What leapt at me was, “73 percent of strong Republicans say that they fear expressing opinions in class because they’re worried that their grade might suffer.”

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "Real space enthusiasts hate NA$A, vol. MCMLXXVIII. So, Bridenstine, what exactly has your agency accomplished in the launch vehicle business over the last 10 years or so, while SpaceX has been busy going from basically nothing to reusable rockets, and is busy developing a super heavy launch vehicle that will cost 1/10 of the Senate Launch System?"

  • Hey I know let's have "single payer" health care what could possibly go wrong!

    In Lighter News

    "Rather than being a career threatening bludgeon like they used to be, the wokescolds are so annoying and obnoxious that fans actually go out of their way to thwart them. If a wokescold starts screaming that an author is guilty of badthink, the fans take that as a sign it is probably pretty good, and go check it out."

    Michael G. sends, "Thoughts of a first time hunter. Thoughts on both the the hunt, and how to get people to step over the line and become hunters." Still want to, someday, if only to tick off the animal-"rights" terrorists.

    Trump. Godsdammit.

    Fairfax godsdammit

    Michael G. sends, "In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. A revolutionary act was committed in a guest opinion in the newspaper of Appalachian State University. However the newspaper itself quickly demonstrated its willingness to say two plus two equals five."

    Followed by "Another story from the inmate-run asylum of the Northwest."

    Then, "'60 minutes just makes stuff up' - which is true, but highly ironic coming from a 'whistleblower' whose whistleblowing consists of repeating unverified hearsay."

    With, "ANTIFA standing up to POWER! That must have taken incredible courage, facing down a juggernaut like that person manipulating a metal frame." "This only surprises people who have not been paying attention the last three years. For the rest of us, it’s nothing new."

    And, "It's been a running gag at Instapundit for years now that if it weren't for fake hate crimes, there'd be hardly any hate crimes at all."

    Demographic warfare

    Religion of Peace

    Oh look yet another serial sex-offender Democrat.

    Entertainment rot and the impossibility of separating the entertainment from the entertainer.

    Meanwhile in the government-run brainwashing factories....
    ...It's not paranoia if they really are being programmed to exterminate us.
    And that's not hyperbole.

  • GUN CONTROL SUCCESS STORY
  • Michael G. observes, "So much for the Inspector General. There has been a pattern, hasn't there?"
  • Followed by, "Man killed in wrong house raid had no rights because illegal." Which causes ambivalence until one thinks it through: "Don't get upset, open-borders activists, the cops don't believe anyone has rights when cops are shooting." And I believe it was Judge Andrew Napolitano who once said "The Constitution protects people, not just citizens", and just the other day I was linking a similar thought.
  • '"I believe that any weapon that can be used to hunt individuals should be banned," announced Charlottesville Police Chief RaShall M. Brackney....' But law enforcement supports the Second Amendment and nobody wants to take your guns.
  • "Think of what that means for the type of enforcers they want."
  • Never trust a cop
  • of any kind.
  • "PROTECT" AND "SERVE" WHO?

    Michael G. sends, "Court holds U Iowa officials personally liable for discriminating against Christians. No taxpayers left holding the bag this time." How the heck can the university freeze a student group's bank account?

    Followed by, "There's an epidemic of violence! Or should that be ? instead of ! FBI reports murder and violence was DOWN in 2018."
