HELP ME GET OUT OF THIS HORRIBLE PLACE
6100 Sunday, 1 March 2020:

The World Sucks

A couple times in the past few days I've referred to a thing I heard on the radio, that the World Health Organization sounds like it's discouraging realistic measures to prevent epidemics. Michael G. now sends "WHO is worse than useless. Only those who acknowledge that took timely effective action."

Followed by, "Campus authoritarians hate exposure. Tyrants always do." "...[T]his professor is actually tagging me online to his friends, to his followers, to go and harass me." And that's what you're going into soul-crushing debt for.

Michael then asks, "Isn't this how you lost your last working vehicle?" Yes, struck from behind by some entitled jerk in a shiny new Audi. And of course the insurance company screwed me after paying thousands of dollars over the years at the implied point of a government gun. Spent the last three-plus years clawing my way back to a point where I might possibly consider getting another cheap beater, just in time for the state to raise registration fees and probably tighten requirements for their DEQ revenue-scam too. May their whole corrupt and illegitimate system and everyone who's a part of it all burn in Hell.

With, "College progressives believe in the magical law of contagion." Just as some bigoted anti-self-defense perverts believe in eee-vill gun rays casting dominion over the sooouls of men.

And, "Socialism and health care: The capitalist may only care about your money and not you, but at least he does care. The socialist doesn't even care about that."

Michael sends yet another Immigrant Contributing to Society and it sounded so familiar I wondered if I'd already linked it but no there really are that many illegal immigrant child-rapists getting repeatedly deported and released and returning for a brand-new EBT card full of their victims' parents' taxes.

"Mainstream" media are all pathological liars and also psychotically ignorant.

Yet again I predict suicide bombings.

Speaking of psychosis....

Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends again with Boeing and software. "They were too busy sponsoring Al Sharpton."

This sort of thing is happening right here in this horrible place. Every day at work I drive past truly dozens of blue-tarp encampments, heaps of garbage, and screaming-crazy-sidewalk-people. One of my stops takes me right through the official Skid Row. I should take video.... Remember a few weeks ago the trash were trying to set up a tent right outside the hovel's door. Drunken potheads are loitering and littering and building the occasional shantytown fifty meters from this keyboard probably as I type. And it's been made very clear whose side the police and government are on.

Thought: I don't want to live in a John Ringo novel, but I'd rather live in a John Ringo novel than in a Stephen King novel. At least Ringo's characters get to shoot back. Which kind of segues to,

  • Michael G. sends "Greek police struggling with Turkey-enabled invasion. While Germany is still in denial. Hope Poland is getting those winged hussars ready." These are acts of war. WhichIhavealsopondered.
  • And as if on cue. Comment: "I long for less civilized times. they were actually more civilized."
  • With, "Body cams will fix everything! I just skimmed this post, so I might have misunderstood it, but it sounds like prosecutors, cops, and a copsucker company coming together for evil purposes." To decide what, if any, evidence gets released, or destroyed.
  • Followed by, "Some one else sees Haney didn't kill himself. And oddly his book is no longer available on Amazon."
  • Then, "NYC Narc shoots up bar in rage. Angry because a woman ignored him." But tell me again how only police can be trusted with guns and I'm the threat. To which dot connect
  • I have stated several times that I am anti-prohibition. Michael sends, "Opioid litigation another cash grab by trial lawyers." Leave people alone. These problems did not exist before prohibition. Prohibition created Al Capone. Prohibition created the Sinaloa Cartel. It used to be housewives could buy all this stuff over the counter or even send their kids down to the store to fetch it for them.
  • Look at us now.
  • Illinois Sheriffs Protest Violent Felons Facing Deportation Being Released into Communities? Sorry, no sympathy for the people who openly attack the natural human right to self-defense against the very same people they're complaining about now.
  • Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends "OH NOES: somebody, somewhere is having fun we don't approve of! BAN IT!" Which I was again pondering just the other day. Michael G. sends the same link, commenting, "It's a Bubblegum Crisis! A whole other meaning for, 'OK, Boomer.'"
  • SMLE Fan follows with, this is not Lighter because Oregon is kind of totalitarian. For the record, speaking as a professional driver, most yellow lights I encounter in the Portland metro area are four seconds, a few are five, but at least one I know of is only three. (SMLE Fan says it's six in Florida.) May that corrupt and illegitimate system and everyone who is part of it also burn in Hell.

    Many times in these pages I have said that FABBERS will CHANGE the WORLD. Michael G. sends, all the worlds.

    The World Sucks

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


    F*** YOU FAIRFAX

    COMMIES AREN'T COOL

    Bringing back prohibition in Ohio.

    Michael G. sends "Another look at how the Coors killer doesn't fit MSM narrative."


    Which segues to

    "Warren has an especially opposite opposites day: Fight Coronavirus by Leaving Border Open." Followed by

    "Interesting quarantine call for Sen. Murphy. While funny, if he did carry coronavirus from Iran to the Senate it is too late, and it is long enough past that he would no longer be infectious. And the people he would have had closest contact to while infectious would be Dem legislators, staffers and Deep State embeds. Test him for antibodies, leak that he did have it in the past and watch them all freak out."

    Michael then sends, "This is true about all progs, not just Bloomberg." Control.

    With, "Obama holdover flew in corona patients on his own authority." "President Trump had been told that nobody with the coronavirus would be flown to America. The State Department decided to do it anyway without telling him...." There's a word for that. And let me repeat this visual aid because it's not paranoia if they really do hate us and fantasize about murdering us:

    The place where Finland used to be at taxpayer expense of course.

    To which dot Michael G. connects "Hit and run assault by man with interesting name."

    Don't Go to College, Where Free Speech Goes to Dietm.

    Hey remember when fears of children being indoctrinated with a gay agenda were dismissed as "paranoid" and "homophobic"

    But they wonder why their ratings are down.

    A reader sends: 'Companies are calling me to set up an interview, then just before it's scheduled, there's an awkward phone call in which they tell me, "well, there are gaps on your resume," yes, because people aren't willing to hire me due to the gaps in my resume--illegal aliens, felons, addicts, and the mentally ill seem to have no difficulty finding work, but I'm not good enough. And "this is a junior position and we think you're overqualified. You wouldn't be a good fit. If we get a senior position..." which means, "go away, old man." "We were rilly rilly impressed with your skills. But. We were rilly, you know, like, looking for someone who could, you know, like, communicate with the Millenials, you know, like, someone who can, you know, like, relate to the kids, and, you know, like, speak their language, because we have a, you know, like, rilly rilly youthful, high-energy workplace culture, and, you know, like, you wouldn't fit in here." They won't send this in an email, of course, because they know age discrimination is illegal, of course, but age discrimination is also almost impossible to prove under US law and I'd likely die of old age before the American court system could reach a conclusion anyway, because these cases typically take decades to finish. I have read the depressing statistic that white males over the age of fifty who find themselves unemployed on average take a year and a half to find another full-time position. I am beginning to believe it. I am so frustrated that I have no words for it. I'm applying for part-time jobs parking cars and getting back nothing. I can't get a job pushing around carts in the parking lot at supermarkets, either, and I thought the only qualification for that was a pulse. They hire ex-cons, illegal aliens, and people with Down's Syndrome, but I'm not good enough.' Which I have also pondered. At least I'm not working next to morons and criminals for the time being, and am back into the relative solitude and autonomy of courier driving, which appears to be the work I hate least, but there's this Damoclesian sense that it could all go away at any moment.

    And then this happens.

    Codrea observes an anniversary, and a birthright abandoned.

  • Michael G. sends a meth gang leader who also happens to be a Democrat member of a county council. The police are on the side of the mobs and the governments ARE the criminals.
  • And they keep proving me right.
  • Remember, peasant, society needs police to protect us from drunks with guns.
  • Remember, peasant, society needs police to protect us from grand theft and elder abuse.
  • Remember, peasant, society needs police to protect us from liars and frauds and corruption.
  • But who will protect us from double standards?
  • In Occupied Washington the Other Side will just make up new "laws" and "pass" them whenever and however they feel like.

  • What order would you not obey?

    In Lighter News

    Michael G. sends "Thoughts on ammo for a Luty style SMG: I was watching some videos by TAOFLEDERMAUS about non-spin stabilized projectiles. It got me thinking about Luty based guns that use unrifled tubing for barrels. It would probably be a good precaution to come up with a projectile that has a shape that can self stabilize without spin, has good enough accuracy with spin, feeds reliably and can be easily and cheaply made in quantity. The net effort and resources consumed over that of a conventional bullet would have to be less than that of rifling the tubing barrel. Something in principle like this skeletonized Diablo, but put a plastic collar around the shaft. Imagine something like a .380 bullet with a stem ending in a flat plate of bore diameter with a .32 plastic washer around the stem filling the space between the plate and the base of the bullet. The washer supports the stem and plate but being smaller diameter leaves a lip to produce a stabilizing base shock wave at supersonic speeds and being less dense moves the center of gravity forward of the center of pressure for sub sonic stabilization." He shortly follows with, "More thoughts on Luty ammoL This video on home recycling polyethylene. Picture a stepped cylindrical mold split in half. The narrow portion is around .32 caliber, with a slot slightly above the bottom that holds a brass or zinc washer with an OD around .355. The wider portion is around .355. The washer is slid into the slots of the two halves and they are secured together. The molten plastic is placed in the open end of the mold. A plunger with a recess in the end that holds a 00 buck shot is pressed into the open end of the mold. The molten plastic is forced through the hole in the washer and fills the open space, creating a plastic rivet to secure the washer. At the other end the plastic molds around the buck shot creating a half jacket. Mold dimensions would probably need to be increased to allow for how the plastic expands at high temperature. Of course a factory could crank these out via injection molding with no problem."

    More Constitutional Carry action in Tennessee. Which at this point appears to be for state residents only, like Wyoming, Idaho, and North Dakota, but still.

    Continuing Second Front action in Occupied Washington and as always 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.

    Increments in Iowa.

    Codrea observes a response to the entertainment rot.

    MidWestReader sends range observations: "The only new thing in evidence that was of interest was an HK USP 9mm with the 'flat dark earth' frame and night sights, for $599. I was told later it sold within a day or two. The USP in 40, I have read, often cracks its polymer frame somewhere up past the 10,000 round mark, but the USP in 9mm is enormously overbuilt. Also a bit thick and blocky and sharp-cornered for discreet carry, but all engineering involves tradeoffs. The magazine only holds fifteen rounds, but I also notice the USP's grip frame is actually a bit short and the extra length of the 'Jet Funnel' mag well mod is not unwelcome, at least for my hands, and the lengthened mags to fit the 'Jet Funnel' hold eighteen. I wonder whether you could stick a Mec-Gar +2 bottom on them and make them into twenty-rounders. Maybe you'd need a heavier mag spring to lift the taller and heavier stack of cartridges reliably and push up the slide stop on the last round."

    Some problems present their own solutions. Which makes me ponder, this coronavirus thing might be good in the long term, by wrecking communist China's economy even more than Trump already has, reducing our dependence on their slave labor, stimulating the restoration of our domestic manufacturing capabilities and creating even more jobs right here at home.

    And then Desert Hermit Joel happens.

    The World Sucks

    Immigrants Contributing
    MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD

    RINO backstabbing

    And other kinds.

    Think about the kind of people who don't want us to have guns.

    And never forget they want us all dead.

    YES DISNEY STAR WARS DELIBERATELY SUCKS IT WAS ON PURPOSE.

    Michael G. sends, "You will take our s***-sandwich course, or else! A Princeton student group is upset many grad students don't take diversity courses and so want to make it mandatory." Marching into the classroom at bayonet-point. To which dot connect the complaints that white males aren't spending our money to watch their racist sexist garbage in the movie theaters.

    Followed appropriately by, "Emory U student paper: Free speech is only the left allowed to do or say anything they want." '“Only threats of immediate bodily harm should permit universities to assert their authority over protesters,” The Wheel argues.' OH YOU MEAN LIKE THIS?

    Then, Vegan Jogger Offended By the Smell of Meat Tells Neighbors to Close Windows While Cooking. One hopes for Schadenfreude but that's not the way to bet anymore....

    With, bad causes attract bad people who are openly advocating and committing political violence. While it may be entertaining to watch them eat their own remember they're coming after us next which segues to

  • HADAMAR which segues to
  • Michael G. sends, "Look who Biden wants as his gun control czar. When he was mangling the Declaration of Independence yesterday, I must have missed the part where he said, 'the fur suit of happiness.'" "When he was pressed on the issue and how he would approach gun owners who would refuse to hand in their firearms, O'Rourke said police would have to take them away." Dead cops on every doorstep coast-to-coast would be the least-bad outcome. IT'S NOT PARANOIA IF THEY REALLY ARE TALKING ABOUT FINAL SOLUTIONS.
  • Followed by, "Once again, 'Portland Justice' is proved to be an oxymoron." The police are on the side of the mobs and the courts are on the side of the terrorists. -I note the columnist also refers to the persecution of Michael Strickland.
  • With, "Former top Obama official accused of blaming Jews for Iranian nuclear stockpile." What kind of four-dimensional pretzel-logic did that come from?
  • Remember, peasant, body cameras will fix everything. Someday.
  • Remember, peasant, society needs police to protect us from reckless drivers.
  • Demands more laws, gives examples of how existing laws were ignored.
  • Demands the little people disarm, demands armed bodyguards at little people's expense.
  • Doctors as agents of the state what could possibly go wrong.
  • And Trump's conserrrvative SCOTUS appointments are doing what for us?
  • And what are we doing for ourselves?

    Don't buy more guns, you have enough guns, buy more ammunition and get more practice and training with the guns you have.

    The World Sucks

    BURN THE GOVERNMENT CHILD-SEX-GROOMING FACTORIES

    From the world of ivory towers, Michael G. sends "Parties are more important than quarantines. I'm reminded of the motive for the initial murder in The Mirror Crack'd."

    Followed by, "Danish govt. shocked, shocked that foreign invaders don't follow the laws and culture of the invaded country. I guess we need to hear from Tommy Lee again, until enough Danes wake the hell up to actually do something about their self-made problem."

    In my fictional future history I postulate a resurgent France backlashing against Islamic invasion, rising to world dominance, taking over the United Nations and transforming it into the tyrannical Terran Empire. Maybe so.

    No longer regretting never having served in the military, Chapter MMMMMMCIII. Which segues to

    Immigrants Contributing to Society which includes

    Oh look yet another illegal-immigrant child-rapist how many does that make now.

    And then this happens. Michael G. comments, "Feature, not bug."

    This horrible place is looking more like that horrible place every day.

    But these aren't things we have to worry about... right?

    At some point Joss Whedon appears to have developed a brain tumor. I'll never enjoy Firely as much again....

    And here's another nail in the coffin for any interest I had in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Which segues to,

    Now that the elitist-totalitarian billionaire communist has dropped out, should I go with the senile child-molester millionaire communist, the violent-revolutionary millionaire communist, or the pathological-liar millionaire communist? Maybe I'll stick with the guy who's put the fewest knives in my back.

The people who keep us safe[?]” one commenter said. Another wrote: “I have never seen a post that makes me more angry. Ya’ll are the SAME people that call these people to come protect you when you need them, yet disrespect them when they are not of service to you.”'" Yeah, well, never trust a cop of any kind.... And again, those who wear the badge are as disposable to the regime as those against whom the regime sends them.
  • Followed by "Shopping in San Fran. And if you object you're a racist." I'm reminded of a big Fred Meyer store several miles from here which got shoplifted right out of business several years ago. There's a police station where it used to be....
  • Then, "Future Deep State Lawyers won't even listen to arguments from other side, try to keep others from hearing them also."
  • With, hoist on his own Red Flag. How many cops think it's a great idea to use this "law" on the rest of us.
  • But remember, peasant, society needs police to protect us from drunk drivers.
  • And remember, peasant, only police can be trusted with machineguns. Because they're special.
  • And because they have all that training.

    Michael G. sends "Joe Biden, scumbag: Taking a break from his Trump Derangement Syndrome, Kevin Williamson reminds us who Biden really is." "The casual cruelty with which Biden is willing to subordinate the lives of ordinary people to his political ambitions...."

    Followed by, "Bernie is shocked, shocked! that his bros behave badly."

    Then, speaking of cynicism and sociopathy, "Pelosi delayed C19 funding so DNC ads could attack GOP over C19 funding. An especially blatant version of Dems attacking GOP because of Dem actions." Where have we seen that before.

    With, "Syracuse U to send faculty to re-education camps. Only the non-tenured faculty. I guess they assume we don't know that when the Red Guards force the establishment to bend to their will, they are actually enforcing the establishment's will." Timely Visual Aid. To which dot connect

    Potential increment in Tennessee. In a sane country such things wouldn't be necessary because kleptomaniacal sociopaths in government costume wouldn't exist in the first place....

    Michael G. sends "New bridge building technique. Hopefully no diversity hires were involved, but it looks good."

    In my fictional future history and particularly in the series I hope to conclude in the next few weeks, I contemplate what I call the "reserve privateer", a civilian ship capable of military operations and given some recognition or benefit from government for maintaining readiness to do so. Not a new idea. Consider also the most recent Skype Show.

    Yesterday it was a United States Senator inciting mob violence against Supreme Court Justices and now Michael G. sends "Yes, they do hate us and want us to die." Right out loud in as many of their own words.

    Followed appropriately by, "Another 'white is bad' college course. Sounds like they're saying that if you beat yourself up for being white, you're still racist because you are taking the job a person of color should be doing."

    Michael G. sends "A reminder that Sanders was Mini-Me compared to Kerry. W left us in a hole during his second term but it would have been worse if he hadn't won his second term." Which I was pondering at the time.

    Followed by, "Honoring any white person is racist." Okay fine. Go back to your mud huts and starvation and plague. And see how long it takes you to get there without our taxes.

    It's not paranoia if there really is a concerted and deliberate effort to demonize my demographic.

    But speaking of plague, maybe it is paranoia to think we're all going to diiie. I wouldn't trust Old Media to tell me it rains in Seattle.

  • Michael G. sends "About what you would expect from an Obama Inspector General: Indicted on fraud and theft charges."
  • Followed by, "Projection much? It's conservatives and the GOP he wants to defend the Constitution from. And he cites the pledge of allegiance, not the Constitution."
  • A reader sends: "I don't know whether you read ARFCOM. Recently there was a discussion thread in which someone said he planned to build a homemade suppressor on a Form 1, and had ordered bits and bobs from China through Wish.com, such as 'Aluminum 1/2 - 28 or 5/8 - 24 Filters FOR NAPA 4003 WIX 24003 Car Fuel Filter'. These items are typically sold as a 'fuel filters', and are not machined all the way through both ends, and may require further additional machining than that, depending on who's selling what. There are lots of this kind of thing for sale. I am no lawyer. I should think that getting these pieces of metal, then completing the Form 1, then marking the device appropriately and machining it appropriately, would be completely lawful. Lots of people have ordered these, done the Form 1, finished them, and everything was perfectly okay with BATFE. But someone on ARFCOM said he ordered one with just that intent and found the Eye of Sauron was upon him. The poster claimed he got scary letters saying the package had been seized by Customs and examined by 'experts' from DHS" [like these guys?] "who determined he was illegally importing suppressor parts, and demanded explanations from him. Only they're not suppressor parts until the machining is finished, just like an 80% lower is a paperweight until someone with a drill press and milling machine finishes it. That thread wasn't up long. It was taken down within a few hours and not archived. I am not sure what to think here. I've always figured the web pages selling such things--usually for $300 instead of $10, too--were BATFE honeypots, as were the eBay and Amazon resellers with their additional markups. I didn't know you could order direct from China. But I sure feel safer, knowing that DHS 'experts' are opening up random packages and eyeballing bits of metal to see whether they could conceivably be 'illegal suppressor components'. It's probably safer than trying to stop those container ship loads of carfentanil and meth the ChiComs are dumping into this country."

    "GUN SHOW LOOPHOLE" but nobody wants to talk about that.

In my courier work I cross a certain light-rail track four times a day. Sometimes I'm there just as the "train" is. With one car. With only one passenger I've ever seen. After how many dozens of millions of tax dollars collected at the implied point of a government gun to build the thing while seizing property and disrupting business.

    And, "Don't expect feminists to march over this crime."

    Years ago I wrote "Nendel remembered the horror he had felt as a fresh lieutenant at the Second Battle of New Israel, watching his platoon being shot out from under him by shoulder-fired rockets with shaped-charge fission warheads. He didn't remember the two months he'd spent in the regen tub after, getting his DNA unscrambled a strand at a time." Now Michael G. sends, Scientists find toolkit to aid repair of damaged DNA. Which segues to,

    Near a month ago when I posted Aurora, part 127, I expressed dissatisfaction that it was shorter than I wanted. Well, part 128 went long so I chopped some off the top of 128 and tacked it onto the bottom of 127 so go re-read it now.

    For over a decade I have been writing Aurora, set in a universe I have been building for more than twice as long. As this series nears completion I reflect on the many influences on my creation. The Prophet Heinlein of course, and his contemporaries like Asimov and Clarke and H. Beam Piper, predecessors like E.E. Smith, the following generation like Niven and Pournelle and McCaffrey, current creators like Weber, Drake, Ringo, Kratman, Correia, Bujold. The largest franchises in the genre, Star Wars, Star Trek; perhaps lesser-known but highly important products like Uchuu Senkan Yamato, and naturally Firefly, to which I conceived Aurora as an opposite - a ship that wasn't always falling apart, a crew that wasn't always desperately struggling to survive... an exercise in personal escapism, imagining an existence less endlessly depressing than my own, a world, worlds, where innocent people could live in freedom without begging permission or paying extortion. There are others, from other fields, such as the Prophet Kipling, whose skill at painting pictures with words is perhaps unsurpassed to this day; Robert E. Howard and Edgar Rice Burroughs, C.S. Forester's Hornblower saga (which I only read one or two books of, but the A&E series of eight films was well executed, as was Peck's decades earlier, despite him being a commie); swashbuckler movies of the 1930s and '40s and '50s, not least with Errol Flynn. A lot of stuff went into this. I hope it doesn't suck. Expect the next chapter very soon, and the ending, mostly complete already, shortly after.

    And then I start on the next series.

    More money is not always the answer Trump godsdammit. "Indeed, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appears to have approached this recent coronavirus spending bill as a liberal Santa Claus measure. She reportedly tried to sneak abortion funding into the coronavirus bill, along with a whole host of long-lasting reforms that will make it harder for businesses to function."

    The next time someone calls me "racist" I'll try real hard to remember that minorities never commit hate crimes. Eight years of Obama led to this. You've seen it, haven't you? The arrogance. The sense of entitlement. Black supremacist racists demanding special treatment.

    The World Sucks

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "Scare tactics - irresponsible reporting and inaccurate headline: 'Italians over 80 "will be left to die" as country overwhelmed by coronavirus' screams the headline, but if you actually read the article, it turns out that this is a policy proposal, yet to be approved by the Italian authorities, that would be used if the country’s healthcare system is overwhelmed to the point of not being able to handle cases, which, most importantly HAS NOT HAPPPENED YET, according to the article, despite what the media around the world has been screaming. Even more noteworthy is that Italy’s so-called 'excellent health infrastructure' has only 5090 intensive care beds for a population of 60 million. New York State alone has more than that for a population half that of Italy." First response: governmenthealthcarewhatcouldpossiblygowrong. Second response: massive overstocks of hand sanitizer on clearance across the country three months from now, if not sooner.

    To which dot Michael G. connects, "Will quarantine-caused distance learning lead to more balanced classes? Either through profs and TAs toning it down, or revealing themselves to the people actually paying the bills? I'll believe it when I see it. I could see demands that since home is now college, campus gun free rules should be extended to home."

    Followed by even more panic, and as if on cue "Capitalism and profiteering. Or, do you believe in free markets or don't you? The comments are good too. I thought it was an excellent point that there is a moral difference between the profiteer who brings in outside additional supplies and one who helps create the shortage in the first place, but trying to prevent the latter has worse consequences than the profiteering did. Also the latter encourages the former and increased supply results in lower prices. There is also a good short parable about three women in jail because of pricing." During the Obama years I sold a couple bricks of Remington Thunderbolt .22LR for $35 each. Just a few years earlier they were in a coupon book for $8.99.

    And there are other thoughts. To which Larry Correia adds 'I just watched an actual PhD scientist medical doctor get into an argument about how diseases spread with a lady who sells herbal soap for a living, and she told the doctor to “get educated”.' (Also, "We could fire 1/3 of the government tomorrow and all it would do is open up more parking." (And then this happens.))

    (I was filling in at work today, and after, I stopped for some groceries. There is panic buying. Empty shelves at WinCo, which is one of the iconic American never-run-out-of-stuff, see-how-communism-has-failed-you supermarkets. Toilet paper, yes, and related products like paper towels and picnic napkins, but also all the fresh meat, and much of the frozen. I asked if the fresh meat was being pulled and was told no, people are buying it. Fine, I have rather a lot on hand, frozen chicken, frozen shrimp, frozen vegetables, cans of stuff too, even some gallons of tap water taking up space in the refrigerator in repurposed apple cider jugs. And at least a few pounds of rice. People are stupid and the media is evil for drumming up this panic. Three months from now this will be over, Old Media's ratings will go down even further as more people see them for the liars they are, and whole genres of internet memes will be obsolete. And if more people get into prepping as a result, well, fine.)

    (Speaking of Old Media, "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 then observes the pathological-liar millionaire-communist was a "victim of sexism... low expectations." "She's been assured that she's entitled to success -- and that any failures to achieve said success are the fault of men." To which dot connect yesterday's observations on black supremacists, indoctrinated for decades and generations that everything wrong with their lives is white people's fault.

    And then this happens.

    Michael adds, "Canadian green energy grows jobs! In Texas." "Your" "fair" "share".

    As for prepping, Michael sends, "A Lot of People Are Finding Out You Can’t Just Buy a Gun Online." I'm reminded, not for the first time, of a Joe Bob Briggs routine from MonsterVision on TNT around the time of the Rodney King riots. Something like, Hollywood actors were calling up Charlton Heston to borrow a gun, and he said, "Why don't you go down to the store and buy one?" and they answered, "Well, there's this waiting period," and he said, "Yes. You voted for it. Click." And then Jane Fonda's husband fired Joe Bob not long after.

    And now I'm losing wages because
    a quarter of my route is closed.
    Fortunately I have two months' rent saved up,
    which is rather more than twice what I usually have,
    but this is how my world works:


    Michael G. sends, "SPLC focuses on the priorities during pandemic: Smearing everyone they oppose politically as racists and haters."

    Followed by, "The solution to everything is more immigration! I suppose because the true solution to everything is always authoritarian power and less freedom, and this is a means to that."

    And as if on cue.

    With, "This is what the China Government virus college shut down is keeping our students from learning about." "What if the Humans are right? he wondered. What if it's been tried this way before, and never worked?"

    But tell me again whose fault it really is.

    And of course, don't go to college.

    Freeway thoughts: The Left: "Trump doesn't hire minorities! Trump is racist!" ...Trump hires minorities.... "Those aren't real minorities! They're Oreos and Uncle Toms and House-N-Words and race traitors!"

    "REFUGEES WELCOME"

    "The people panic-buying now are mainly first-time gun owners and anti-gun hypocrites." "Good. Welcome. Now stop voting Democrat."

  • And North Carolina and Wyoming and Tennessee and California should go without saying at this point.

    Michael G. looks on the bright side.

    Back here I pondered the "Great Repealing", a broad slashing of regulations and laws to lighten the burden of government upon the people. Michael now sends a bonfire of the regulations. One can hope.

    Not all of the younger generation is brainwashed.

    Michael G. sends, "Occupiers now only students physically at Syracuse U since Syracuse shifted to online classes only in response to Chinese Government virus. Talk about being focused on the movie in their heads where they are the heroes." Butbutbut who will commit the hate crimes? Michael quickly follows with, "If a protest happens where nobody sees it, does anybody care? In an update to the Syracuse U occupiers, less than a day after they said they would continue no matter what, they call the occupation off." Which segues to,

    "College indoctrinators worried online teaching will expose what they are doing. The same thing conservatives have said might be a silver lining to the Chinese Government virus, they see as an additional bad effect."

    Then, "Leftists discover witch hunt system will even target leftists. Just because I always opposed this evidence free witch hunt system doesn't mean I can't laugh at the kind of progs who supported it complaining that they were targeted."

    Michael also sends, results from Japan's experimentally shooting an asteroid.

I don't care much about the Africans, but if the cost is low I'd love giving the watermelons a black eye." Aaaaand I'm a prophet, again.

    Followed by, "Breaking news: Univision slams gun buying. Maybe some of the gun buying is Hispanics who know exactly the kind of people being turned loose from the jails because of Chinese Government virus? Not that it matters, we know Univision starts with the conclusion they want and then work backwards."

    Timely Visual Aid.

    Connect these dots: A virus China lied about for months, a media parroting Chinese propaganda while spreading hysteria, government orders to stop working and prohibit gatherings, government orders to halt the sale of arms and ammunition, and now government orders to release criminals and illegal immigrants.

    another quarter of my route has been closed,
    and there seems to be
    a lot of that going around.
    There are things I fear far more
    than the Chinese flu
    .


    Michael G. sends, "Our intellectual betters would never make a simple math error. And then use it to try to wreck a private business. Luckily the businesses' customers apparently realize there is no one dumber than an intellectual better." I'm reminded of a story from a year or three ago about a new (woman) truck driver who destroyed a weight-limited bridge because she didn't know how many pounds are in a ton. And of course, bridges falling out of the sky and ships running into each other.

    From the place where Britain used to be, a chatroom elf reports: "Here is why you guys need to fight for the 2A. Many licenses are due for renewal, which require a doctors note. Doctors are really busy at present so the police forces are using this to remove guns from owners as it's illegal to posses without a valid license, and they know where we all live!!! Hard enough to get signed off as it is, and many doctors charge upwards of $450 just to sign the form."

    Getting damn tired of subliterate room-temperature-IQ racists calling me "inferior".

    Getting damn tired of pre-medieval goat-and-child-raping savages accusing me of "hate".

    Remember the media is lying about everything, all the time.

  • Michael G. sends "All socialists act alike: How NYC's DiBlasio and his school head Caranza reacted to Chinese Government virus. Very similar to the way the Chinese Government did, and I'm sure if they had the power to arrest and disappear whistleblowers, they would have done that too."
  • Followed by, "Why is the Italian death rate so high? Because like the Chinese they've been cooking the books, just in the other direction. Anyone who dies in Italy who tests positive for Chinese Government virus is listed as dead from Chinese Government virus. Even people who had no symptoms and the virus was only found in the pathology blood work."
  • And then this happens.
  • And of course, "Guess who is responsible for N95 mask shortage? According to MSM, Trump. Because Obama used up most of the national stockpile for Swine flu in 2009 and didn't replenish it in the following six years even though he was told he needed to, it is Trump's fault for not knowing it hadn't been done and fixing it in three years. For future reference in the MSM style book: If Trump messes up, it's Trump's fault. If Obama messed up and Trump didn't fix it, it's Trump's fault. If Obama messed up and Trump fixed it, Trump's a racist for attacking the legacy of Obama."

    Michael G. sends, "Another college protest that really looks stupid now: Before Drexel U shut down, the campus socialists held a 'die in' to protest the food service company's use of... single-use sterile eating utensils. A dumb protest at anytime, it has not aged well at all in current conditions."

    He then asks, "What's better, complaining about a shortage or doing something about it?"

    Years ago I wrote "At the north coast of Timber Island, decades before the War, tourism promoters had built Arboria, a complete community suspended an average 100 meters above ground, integrated with the living trees to which it clung. In the following centuries, as the trees continued to grow, xenobotanists had steered that growth to create living buildings, shaped into rooms of natural wood." This kind of thing is what I envisioned. ...But I was probably also inspired by the Ewok village in Episode VI, and by Expanded Universe descriptions of Wookiee habitations on Kashyyyk.

    Years ago I wrote "...[T]hose UN government doctors," Attalba supplied, "are illiterate butchers who know absolutely nothing about cellular surgery, cartilage regeneration, or nerve replacement, despite us telling them all about it, with pictures yet, for the last eighty or ninety years." I also wrote, "Our average lifespan is over two hundred Terran years. The same free-market medicine, without bureaucrats bogging it down, has developed anti-aging treatments most other societies can scarcely imagine. Last time I was at Sylvan I met a woman who was something over 160 Terran years old, still working in a sawmill - not because she couldn't retire but because she didn't want to.

    Followed by, "More evidence supporting the use of hydroxychloroquine" which a couple state governors have banned: "I do not expect Dem pols blocking its use in the US to change their opposition. Because Orange Man Bad."

    Then, "How many times now have they proved they hate us, and want us to die?" Remember this.

    And as if on cue, "NY Times says ChiGov virus is the fault of evangelical Christians. Because they support Trump. And some Christians did bad things in the past. I especially like this bit of projection: 'Stewart rails against calling the Democrats the "party of death," and insists for religious conservatives, "Fealty to the cause is everything; fidelity to the facts means nothing."'" Memes in comments.

  • Also as if on cue, "Fed judge turns loose ten illegals with pre-existing conditions. Because they might catch Chinese Government virus in jail. No doubt they will immediately head to a clean, disease free area with social distancing to wait it out." This is why you became a cop.

    The World Sucks

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


    Gun show acquaintance sends Chinese government propaganda in American media.

    "In the 1960s, filming miniature spaceships was a slow and expensive process. This forced the original Star Trek to focus on drama and action-adventure of a decidedly old-school fashion" and that's not what we have now.

    MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD

  • Michael G. sends "DiBlasio says it's not the time to look back on his actions. His version of, 'At this point, what difference does it make?' Because being a prog means never having to say 'I'm sorry' or 'I'm responsible' or 'I effed up'." Or "All those people are dead because of me."
  • Followed appropriately by, "When quick action is needed in a crisis, you can count on bureaucracy: To drag their feet on everything but getting more money and power. Note that this mask cleaning technology has been submitted for approval for four years now." Leading again to questions of why we even have these bureaucracies and regulations and "laws" and wouldn't we be better off without them what are we paying for here. (Michael later sends an update.)
  • With, the other day I heard something on radio news about Representative Thomas Massie of Kentucky getting Trump mad at him for demanding a bit of due process in the stimulus bill - which throwing-money-at-it response I am already uncomfortable with, not even counting all the commie crap the Democrats stuffed into it. Massie has already made very strong expressions in support of the natural human right to keep and bear arms, and now Michael sends "John Lott defends Representative Massie: Their real anger on the call for quorum wasn't that it delayed the vote, it was that it prevents them from having plausible deniability." Massie is right Trump godsdammit. (Consider also: "Republic credits are no good out here. I need something more real.")
  • Then, "If you want to see your kids, lock up your guns and limit your speech. What jumps out at me was that the mother never once asked for limitations on his guns storage, the judge in the case unilaterally put that condition in." Remember that next time some costumed sociopath robbing you at the point of a government gun tells you to "tell it to the judge". And remember also how the Red Flag "laws" would never be abused by ex-girlfriends or the like.
  • And, "A ChiGov virus death in NYC. I'd like to see a picture of the perp. I find it suspicious that they don't include one. I even followed the links to Daily Mail and NY Daily News and there was no picture there either." We all know what that means by now.
  • Remember, peasant, only police can be trusted with guns. Because they have all that training.
  • Which segues to the place where Britain used to be.
  • To which jackboot connect New Jersey, Where the Redcoats Never Lefttm!
  • Remember the state-level organizations are the ones doing the real work. Help them.

    With all the other stuff going on, I forgot that yesterday was the official 119th birthday of the Model of 1911. An example of which is usually in Condition One next to my mousepad as I type.

    Michael G. sends "And all it took was a deadly pandemic for them to see the obvious: Italians burn EU flag, vow to leave EU over EU's lousy coronavirus response."

    Blogbrother SMLE Fan and I have a saying: TAISP - The Almighty Internets Shall Provide. He now sends National Emergency Library online.

    During the Second World War the United States of America found herself allied with one of the most oppressive and destructive regimes in human history, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. One enemy at a time.

    One hopes this is Lighter in the sense of demonstrating what immature imbeciles leftists are.

    In the very first part I ever wrote in my fictional future history is "Fuentes sat with practiced ease, sweeping his sabre and the holstered revolver around to clear the arms of the chair." Years later I wrote "...[T]he seat design had won two industry awards and a military contract...." and years after that I wrote "Nosc gestured to seats. One, detecting an approaching Nikar, reconfigured itself to clear his tail." Why has this taken so long. And why is it being marketed to costumed sociopaths instead of human beings.

    The World Sucks

    "Your" "Fair" "Share"

    Michael G. sends "It was just an editing mistake. There's an old familiar tune from the MSM."

    And then this happens. Wouldn't trust the TV to tell me it rains in Seattle.

    And then that man who ingested fish-tank cleaner because Trump said it would fight coronavirus was actually murdered by his crazy drug-addict wife.

    AND THEN Twitter tries to kill people.

    Corrections and apologies from the media... any moment now....

    Think about Immigrants Contributing to Society for a moment.

    "Religion of Peace" even libertarian icon Thomas Jefferson knew when to send in the Marines

  • Codrea observes damnyankees.
  • "They are saying that they are more important than you are, that they should have guns and you shouldn’t."
  • To which Michael G. adds "Americans should be mindful of the dangers of 'emergency' decrees. History tells us that government diktats in response to man-made and natural disasters often lead to unprecedented restrictions on individual liberty that last long after the disasters are forgotten."
  • Followed by, "Colleges can't do 'innocent until proven guilty' because ChiGov virus. That's what the 'All men are automatically guilty' crowd claims. Like they haven't had 16 months to get ready. Is their objection to online meetings the fact that they can't hide what they say and do?" "...[T]aking advantage of a crisis to try to keep due process out of college campuses."
  • Then, the other day I ranted on what police consider important and Michael sends "In Seattle they know what the priorities are in a pandemic." Does that include "honky" and "cracker"? And oh look yet another whiny-snowflake-alphabet-person chief of police what could possibly go wrong.
  • Aaaand Home Owners Associations. Whose idea was that anyway.
  • "As a result of our audit work to date and as described below, we do not have confidence that the FBI has executed its Woods Procedures in compliance with FBI policy...."

    Fifth and Tenth Amendment challenge to bump stock ban.

    Decades ago the Prophet Heinlein, in his landmark novel Time Enough for Love, postulated rejuvenation, turning back the biological clock. John Ringo, David Weber, and even I have used it as plot elements. Michael G. sends more on cellular rejuvenation. "To quote Glenn Reynolds, 'Faster, please.'"
