RIFLEMAN'S JOURNAL - APRIL 2020
The World Sucks
"Your" "Fair" "Share"
Yesterday it was Twitter trying to kill people and today blogbrother SMLE Fan sends Babylon Bee continuing to become a hard news site.
Michael G. sends "Proof that China has ended ChiGov virus: They are amassing medical supplies discreetly in Australia (that we know of) and sending them back to China. If the country that normally produces those supplies is going to other countries to get them, that can only mean that they have cured the disease, ended the pandemic, and solved all their problems. On opposites day or in bizarro world." Meanwhile here in the First World, blind gibbering panic if one person out of a million has a sniffle.
In Lighter News
Michael G. sends the ancient badass o' the day. May his tribe increase.
Massie is right Trump godsdammit
To which dot connect, as tax time approaches, remember, peasant, you're not paying "your" "fair" "share".
Michael G. sends "UVA Law wants to kick out woman who was called up to her National Guard unit. There is a petition on her behalf linked, but it looks like it is for UVA alumni, staff or people with some kind of connection to the school." (Followed by a sudden burst of sanity. "For veterans choosing a school, please know that you are welcome here"? Nnno, I don't think they are, and they wouldn't be saying so if people hadn't raised a stink. Somebody there thought it was a good idea to kick out that student - and that somebody is still there.)
Speaking of reasons to not go to college, "How dare you make me lay in the bed I made! Judge says you can't make a therapist a Title IX snitch for the prosecution and then deny the same information to the defense on the grounds of 'patient confidentiality'. Feminist advocates outraged."
Followed by, "There is no humor in Islam the revolution! Because the Devil hates to be mocked: 'Disturbing number of students say "offensive jokes" could be hate speech.'"
Social media encourages children to make child porn. I wonder where they got that idea.
"Religion of Peace"
To which Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, adds "Biting the hand, with a nice dose of insane misinformation. If they can fob this wild lie off, what else is wrong in the article: 'The vast majority of New Yorkers are not Christian, and if they find themselves wheezing for air due to COVID-19, they don’t want to be proselytized while receiving treatment. They too have reason to be skeptical of the organization’s makeshift hospital.' Best I can find is that about 60% of NYC residents identify as some kind of Christian (the largest denomination are Catholics). That would constitute a majority of the city’s residents as Christian, giving the lie to the above statement in a spectacular way."
Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends the terrible cost of the Chinese Flu.
And then this happens. Which I have also pondered.
The next story approaches. Could be months, could be days, before I post the first part. Which will be a prologue occurring near the end of Aurora. The hangup, see, is the setting. Like Aurora it will be a story about, and set in and around, a ship... and I had little idea what that ship looked like until I scribbled out a napkin-sketch at lunch yesterday. The words, and the pixels, will come. I know now that they will... as they did before.
TRUMP GODSDAMMIT THIS IS NOT WHAT WE HIRED YOU FOR
Yesterday it was the University of Virginia Law School showing contempt for the military and now Michael G. sends "Pelosi tries to steal votes of military. Would require service members to essentially dox themselves to request a ballot, and in return that ballot would be blank so that anybody could fill it out." And let's not forget all those military absentee ballots delayed or "lost" in previous elections.
Followed by, "Japan's Deputy Prime Minister: WHO should change name to CHO - China Health Organization, since that's whose orders they seem to follow."
And yet TrumpKeepsHappening
The Other Side has not thought this through.
This ship design... is going to be considerably more detailed than Aurora, despite, or perhaps because of, its much smaller size. Going back into the previous encounters with this class of ship I find I left myself some clues, and today I came up with another napkin-sketch with internal arrangements. It could take some time to get this design right, and I want that done before I start posting any of the story, not least because it will be necessary for the story. Hopefully I'll make some progress on that this weekend.
If the neighbors don't bust right through the thin slum wall and frame me for a "hate crime".
Michael G. sends even more media bias. "Of course it's against Fox news for not being in lockstep with the rest of the MSM."
Followed by, "Twitter gives college access to parody account mocking the college. When confronted, Twitter says it was a mistake. Said that they should have suspended the account for 'impersonating' the college, instead. Then proceed to do that. Add another reason to the long list of why I never have and never will get a Twitter account."
Immigrants Contributing to Society
MidWestReader observes: "Some gun stores and ranges locally have closed due to concerns about the Chinese virus. It's understandable, as many of the employees are older and some have chronic health conditions that would put them in great danger, and the crowds of panicked sheeple who waited until we were all living in Stephen King's The Stand to buy a gun and ammo can get unruly. A public bus driver in Detroit who made a video on social media in which he complained about his passengers coughing and sneezing without covering their mouths on his bus less than two weeks ago died of the virus today, less than a week after they think he was exposed, and he was younger than I am.
"Last time I was at a gun store before closure they had a literal line out the door and down the street to get in, and inside it was pandemonium, like a ghetto Wal-Mart on Christmas Eve with people fighting over the last pair of basketball shoes. I cannot blame the owner for choosing to shut down temporarily. At those places still open, like Cabela's in [city], every long gun designed after around 1898 is gone, gone, gone. They still have revolvers, metal-framed DA/SA service pistols, and polymer-framed striker-fired service pistols on the shelves and I suppose it's possible they managed to obtain substantial shipments beforehand, because they're flying off the shelves, usually ending up in the hands of people who by all appearances have never seen a gun before except on TV and handle them in a manner suggesting they're not sure which end the hot stuff comes out. No ammo is available other than obscure oddball hunting rifle calibers--lots of 7x64mm Sharpe & Hart has been on the shelves since the first Obama panic eleven years ago--and 12 gauge and 20 gauge light trap loads. There is no handgun ammo to be had, nor .22 LR. Oddly Wal-Marts locally still have .22 LR on the shelves, plus lots of bulk shotgun trap ammo and the usual assortment of hunting rifle calibers like .25/06 and .270 Winchester, of which I'm guessing they sell a single box every two or three years."
There's a big Cabela's store I drive right past twice a day on my usual route. Their parking lot is empty and there are signs in the window saying they're open for curbside pickup. A couple days ago I found myself in a variety store, just to use their restroom, but they sell arms and ammunition. Their shelves were mangy at best, though I was surprised to find a quantity of Federal Champion #510 .22LR unplated solid, of which I bought a brick because I know that stuff shoots expert at Appleseed in a 1982 factory-original 10/22 barrel. As for the fuddfodder, I'm reminded of an incident years ago in another arms shop, long since closed, where a pair of Very Sterotypical Fudds came in looking for some "thirty-thirty shells" and picked up a box of Hornady reloading dies for .30-30 Ackley Improved. All of which Codrea also observes.
MidWestReader follows with: "Lastly, thinking again of the ongoing pandemic. There have been rumors since the very beginning that the Chinese coronavirus is an artificial creation, that it was analyzed and found to have been stitched together neatly from bits and pieces of HIV, SARS, and the Middle Eastern mutant influenza that started local epidemics in Saudi Arabia and Iraq in 2012-13. Given that the whole world knows the Chinese operate an illegal biological warfare lab in Wuhan, what are the odds that the sudden appearance of a novel mutant virus never previously seen on Earth would be in the exact same place? I cannot prove it but to my way of thinking all available evidence points to the Chinese having had a little 'oopsie' with stolen Western science and technology that they don't fully understand. The Chinese have a long history of unwarranted pride in things they didn't actually create and don't understand nearly as well as they think they do. I believe the Greeks had a word for this kind of thing: hubris.
"This time, it looks like the virus was something from research, some experiment that got loose, rather than a finished product they would have used against Hong Kong or Taiwan or the Uyghurs, maybe something from a test batch created to see whether it could propagate in living tissue. This time.
"One presumes that the lab workers were washing out petri dishes in the parking lot into the municipal sewers and reusing them instead of opening a new crate, because that would have cost a nickel. One presumes that the lab workers were stealing infected research animals and selling them to the Wuhan 'wet markets' as bushmeat. That's just how they roll in the PRC.
"And this time, this time, it wasn't Captain Trips that got loose. Will we be so lucky next time? Because it will happen again. The PRC is a militaristic totalitarian state with publicly stated ambitions of replacing us as the global hegemon, and they are grasping blindly in the dark for any weapon they can hold to the world's throat. IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN." Which segues to,
"...[C]rashing the economy is not a treatment for a virus." And among so much other proof that people are stupid,

What order would you not obey?
Michael G. sends TrumpKeepsHappening: "Trump opposes mail-in voting: Violates Washington standards again by bluntly stating an obvious truth, 'No because I think a lot of people cheat with mail in voting.'"
MidWestReader sends tips: "I'd heard of people soldering wire handles onto cartridge cases and making them into powder scoops. Apparently they can be very consistent, especially if you use a business card to strike the excess off the top.
"A .25 ACP case = 0.318 cc and throws almost exactly 3.0gr Bullseye, or 3.4gr of W231. A .32 ACP = .601 cc and that's about 5.7gr Bullseye, or 5.5gr Unique. .380 = .747 cc, for 6.8gr Unique, an old favorite powder charge for .45 ACP full-power hardball. 9mm = .835 cc, holding 6.1gr Red Dot (a recommended powder charge for light 'cowboy' loads in .44 Special or Magnum brass with 200gr cast lead) and so on. Obviously these volumes could be adjusted a bit by adding a bit of epoxy inside the case, or filing the case mouth down, to reduce its internal volume. I suppose some careful polishing of the interior with sandpaper could increase volumes very slightly, but only to a point. Above 9mm we start getting into powder charges more suited to shotgun loading. A .44 Mag case looks like it should hold 23.5gr Unique, for example. As brass cartridge cases can vary significantly in wall thickness and volume, I suppose it'd probably be a very good idea to double-check with a scale before doing anything.
"This also makes me think of a gun-store legend I've heard in which a fellow claimed to be having difficulty with some target wadcutters he'd reloaded, which were displaying excessive recoil and muzzle blast and flash in his GP100, and the primers 'looked funny,' i.e, were cratered and sometimes punctured. It developed that he had misunderstood the instructions in the loading manuals and was scooping a .38 Special case full of powder, then, with some difficulty, seating a double ended wadcutter atop it and crunching it down atop the very compressed powder charge, and crimping it. A .38 Special case scooped full of Unique is 13.7gr. When I put the numbers into QuickLoad assuming a 148gr double ended wadcutter seated flush on top, it halted and said there was not room for this powder charge in the case. When I reduced it bit by bit until it would accept the data, it still reported over 100,000 PSI, which should have destroyed the gun, even a GP100. Even the Redhawks in .454 Casull are only proof tested up to 90K, and they get cylinders of a special steel alloy with a special heat treatment. It's an amusing story, anyway." Has anyone ever blown up a GP100?
Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends:
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "All hail the ChiComs! And, not entirely surprisingly, Bloomberg Media speaks approvingly of China’s 'wet markets'."
To which Michael G. adds, "Gov Cuomo breaks out the kneepads and mouthwash for ChiComs."
With, "The important thing to do during ChiGov virus: Teach college students that it is all because of racism."
To which dot connect, "Georgia cracker pleads to planning attack on White House. The headline would make you think it was some KKK low hanging fruit. Then you find the name is Hasher Jallal Taheb. You be you, MSM, you be you. I clicked through to the source, but it's The Guardian and I don't want to give them any traffic."
Among so many other Immigrant Contributions to Society.
Followed by, "I reject your reality and substitute my own: MSM trying to create a narrative that the red states completely messed up their ChiGov virus response and the blue states did everything almost perfectly, and any blue state failures are due to red states screwing it up. In other words, the same narrative they use in regards to gun control."
Wouldn't trust media to tell me water is wet. Though, "If a state-owned newspaper in China received this kind of complaint, subsequent days would involve journalists waking up in prison with their organs harvested."
The schools are all closed now but let's not forget what they are.
Michael G. sends "The American capitalist way of getting things done." Get out of the way.
Here's a little glimpse into the design of the ship
in and around which the next story will be set:
And then I got out of bed and
went back to work.
And then I come home to
more of this.
Michael G. sends the "Latest entitlement from Harvard Law students: They think they should get their law licenses without having to take the bar exam."
But remember kids, study hard and work hard to get ahead. And then watch Your Fair Share being stolen from you at the point of a government gun on behalf of people who won't.
Decades ago Jeff Cooper, founder of the Gunsite Academy, coined the term hoplophobia. Find a cure for this deadly disease.
BURN THE GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS
"...CBS News apparently didn't check the story because, as they say, it was too good to check." See also.
All of which is psychological projection, imagining that others have the same inclinations as oneself.
And then there's outright psychosis.
You are being lied to. This should bother you.
When this nonsense is over, one hopes American businesses will question whether having anything to do with China is worth anything.
MORE GUNS LESS CRIME
Both Michael G. and blogbrother SMLE Fan send real socialism: video of Venezuelan patrol ship sunk by cruise ship it attempted to seize by what can only be described as costumed piracy. Which segues to,
SMLE Fan then sends traffic camera revenue down as people drive less for Chinese Flu fears. Help starve a feeding bureaucrat.
Michael then sends Trump executive order on space mining.
And this keeps getting worse.
It's not like they can be reasoned with.
Years ago I wrote "Eventually the money ran out. The government printed more but the whole world knew it was worthless"TRUMP GODSDAMMIT
World Health Organization bends the knee to China.
'So yes, the reporter does “work for China.”'
A simpler question would be which don't.
Never forget there is a concerted and deliberate effort to misinform everyone about everything.
But hey let's be more like China
And as if on cue, Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, asks "How’s that Real Socialism working out for you?"
Michael G. sends "Oregon State U to charge more for online classes. Ironic if they drive off the very people they want to indoctrinate by charging too much." Just burn them all down.
To which point he adds, "Criticizing the ChiComs is racist, according to the UC Davis student newspaper. In case you had any doubt who they swear loyalty to."
Followed by hypocrisy from the Jew-haters.
Someone needs to design a Hoplophobia Awareness Ribbon. AR boltface graphic maybe?
BRIDGES AND AIRLINERS FALLING OUT OF THE SKY
With dementia-sauce and Marxism too. "...[T]he Holocaust and the Holodomor are less opposite sides of the same coin than they are the same side of the same coin."
Hardly worth bothering in this horrible place. The GOP hasn't even bothered with a placeholder against bow-tie big-government Blumenauer for several cycles.
Michael G. sends "Boeing to Redo Unmanned CST-100 Starliner Test." Which is not Lighter News because "I think we can say at this point that Boeing corporate culture has become anti engineering." Meanwhile SpaceX is months, or perhaps only weeks, away from their first manned flight of Crew Dragon, on the Falcon Nine booster which has been so well proven they're running out of room to store the ones they're not throwing away.
Doctors and nurses as partisan agents of the state. What could possibly go wrong.
To which dot blogbrother SMLE Fan connects the way things are done in China.
About that malaria drug....
"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 "Linda Tripp is dead. The woman who is proof that to the MSM, truthful whistleblowers who hurt a Democrat are evil incarnate, and lying 'whistleblowers' who try to hurt a Republican are the greatest heroes ever."
Followed by, "Colleges charging evacuated students to get their stuff back. Those students really are getting an education."
Meanwhile, "Pentagon says alleged November ChiGov virus report doesn't exist. Choosing trustworthiness between ABC news and the Pentagon is hard, but since the ChiComs didn't even admit there was a virus until January I'd say the evidence supports the Pentagon." Media lies about everything all the time.
And as if on cue, "CBS makes exact same 'editing error' they made a week ago. So are they slow learners, or do they think we are slow learners? Embrace the power of 'and'."

To which dots Michael connects, "Minnesota doctors told to inflate ChiGov virus deaths. Wonder how many other states are doing this."
With, "WHO: Being called out on politicizing disease-fighting is politicizing disease-fighting. The hallmark of an abuser: Deny, Attack, Reverse Victim and Offender."
Plus, "Pennsylvania to get needed med equipment thanks to Biden family: A Biden-related business drove a number of hospitals into bankruptcy and now Pennsylvania is looking to salvage medical supplies and equipment from them. That's why Joe was the better choice than Bernie. Bernie's family only drove a liberal arts college into bankruptcy, and what can you get that's any use from one of those?"
And, "ChiComs to France: No med gear for you unless you install our spyware in your system. Like the man said:"
(One can hope for backlash.)
Catholics have stopped Catholicking
Oh look even more not throwing away millions of dollars of launch hardware.
Michael G. sends "AZ bill to require colleges to promote speakers of different opposing views. Wonder how long before a bill preventing censorship of different viewpoints gets smeared as promoting censorship?"
"Can't stop the signal, Mal."
MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD
"...[P]eople start to suspect that they're being conned...."
To which Michael G. adds schadenfreude.
With, college students blaming Trump for a Chinese virus that came from China.
Followed by no free speech on campus.
The other day Michael pointed out a doctor being pressured to inflate Chinese Flu infection numbers and wondered how many other states it was happening in. Maybe all of them.
Colion Noir observes hypocrisy:
And that whole industry is full of perverts and sociopaths.
Codrea observes yet another communist Chinese puppet.
Michael G. sends backlash in New York.
The design of the ship in which the next story will be set is progressing, as is the prologue. I may have said before, different authors have different approaches. Reportedly Larry Correia sits down during set hours of the day and works on it like a job, while John Ringo pours it out as a burst and then can't even look at a keyboard for months. I'm somewhere between, formerly, and still leaning, more toward the Ringo end of the spectrum, but now that I've built the universe I find it easier to make new things happen in it. Meanwhile though I still work for a living and I'm kind of keeping my head down about that, as several coworkers have "left the company" and I'm getting significant warning signals of job insecurity as part of the general plague-panic-shutdown nonsense.
I should be getting paid for this, $igh. I could be "Big in Japan". Get the same writer and director who did this.
"Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."
Timely Visual Aids.
Michael G. has taken several shots, so to speak, at the anti-vaccination community, and here's a couple I surfed across.
Michael then sends Top Men in charge of predictions and projections. They're just making it up.
This one facepalmed me so hard I don't even know what to type. Well of course I do, I'm a writer, and the Other Side provides the material: It's only "racist" if a Republican does it and black Republicans aren't really black.
Media lies about everything all the time,
China spies on everything all the time.
A few days ago Michael G. sent Trump on space mining. Now blogbrother SMLE Fan sends more data. Needs more brass cannon.
Michael G. sends "ChiGov virus lockdown will be over by June. I have to assume that is the case because Harvard will be holding an anti-home-schooling summit then. Recent events haven't been supportive of the anti-home-school movement, but they will look especially stupid if they have to hold it as a virtual video summit."
Followed by, "ChiComs suppressing research into ChiGov virus. But it's racist to say they are a hostile power."
LYING ABOUT EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME
Michael G. sends schadenfreude: "China has another oopsie, but it only hurts China. Aww, too bad... that it didn't do more to set back their amphibious war construction program."
The design of the starship for the next story is mostly complete (though I'm sure there will be additions and adjustments later), so have a look, and click on "comment" below if you have any.
"They’re just counting on those uninformed enough to believe them staying ignorant and falling for increasingly desperate gun-grabber lies."
Michael G. sends "A reminder of what authorized journalists are like." Who hates the Jews.
Timely Visual Aid.
As for Catholics no longer Catholicking, "Red Pope using crisis to fly his red flag. Remember how Benedict was smeared as 'The Nazi Pope' because he was drafted at the end of WW2, despite no record of being any kind of Nazi sympathizer as a youth and a lifetime record of opposing totalitarianism? Yet when Francis promotes socialism and paganism we're just supposed to say 'Amen!'"
I'm reminded again how local "conservative" radio talker Lars Larson has been an authoritarian all along. I've known for years he was a badgelicker, despite running arms advertisements and sometimes doing his show from within a local arms shop, but the short bit I caught today had him pronouncing that everything about how we do business and how we travel and how we interact with each other won't and shouldn't ever be the same.
Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends "Given how much earlier the Vikings got here, you might suppose that we'd be speaking something based on Old Norse. This is why that didn't happen." My Vikings are different.

Even Jar Jar hates Disney "Star Wars".
Speaking of hate.
And yet, TrumpKeepsHappening.
Michael G. sends "Michigan citizens can strike back against Governor Whitmer. There's a petition for recall. I don't know if that has any legal force in Michigan, I don't live there, but it is a way for Michigan citizens to say what they feel."
All this complaining about the entertainment rot and the lies and the propaganda and someone on Our Side did do something about it.
Michael G. sends "WHO thinks this makes them look better: WHO doctor says she suspected human to human transmission of ChiGov virus from the start, but went along with ChiCom lies anyway."
Followed by "Coordination to delay return of due process to college." Don't go.
Then, "Tim Blair punches ChiComs again. This time it isn't a fixing. Instead he uses their own methods against them."
MidWestReader sends the ivory-tower snob of the day: "Speaking of silly people in politics. What's your favorite opera? Working-class scum who don't have a favorite opera should shut up and know their place. If she's a troll, she's a pretty determined and consistent one. Speaking of socialism, how long do you suppose this soft-handed suburban woman, who was born to wealth and power and who has never had a real job or known one moment of real hardship in her life, who thinks that her bourgeois tastes in entertainment make her better than miners, factory workers, and farmers, would have lasted at Tuol Sleng?"
Babylon Bee is a hard news site, Chapter MMMMMMCXLIV.

Followed by a protest against Michigan Governor Whitmer.
Arthur C. Clarke said "The universe is not only stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine." Michael now sends, "Evidence of a parallel universe? Where time flows backwards?"

(-And as a matter of fact I do have some bits of a fanfic Star Wars character. Whose lightsaber is red not because he's a darksider but because he took it off a dead Inquisitor and he doesn't know enough about the Force to heal the kyber crystals like Ahsoka did in the novel Ahsoka.)
Michael G. sends, "Democratic Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy exonerated China of any wrongdoing" and that's all I need to know about Democrats and bureaucrats and that little red book.
Because that is followed immediately by 'Pelosi Says Trump Cutting Off Funding to WHO “Illegal” – Vows it Will be “Swiftly Challenged”.'
He then observes, "ChiGov virus follows same pattern, no matter what you do: So we stampeded ourselves based on the dodgy predictions of a guy with a bad record. Go lemmings, go."
And who was panicking the cattle?
Which segues to, "Fictional TV psychiatrist supports red flag laws. If that doesn't settle the question, I don't know what does."
AND EVEN MORE BACKLASH
Yesterday it was Trump making the roaches scatter, now it's Our Kind.
Likewise, Michael G. sends Our Kind reaching out. Which I have been doing for years (and I discover it is possible to embed an entire playlist, not just individual videos):

And I'm still disappointed that the
depopulation event didn't happen.
THEY'VE BEEN LYING TO US ALL ALONG
WITH SUPERSTITION AND FEARMONGERING
NEVER FORGET GENOCIDE IS NOT HYPERBOLE.
Michael G. sends, "The first story in this video describes a typical Portland incident on a typical Portland day." I have to weave my way through concentrations of those creatures every morning on my route.
Joseph Goebbels is alive and well and looks like Mark Zuckerberg.
Entertainment doesn't even know how rotten it's become.
Years ago I wrote "Apartheid had been not ended but inverted".
Michael G. sends REAL SPACE ENTHUSIASTS HATE NA$A GET OUT OF THE WAY.
And then Market Forces happen. ...Something, a vague parallel to how Reagan and Thatcher won the Cold War....
Followed by, "Grudgingly admitting space mining is legal. In response to Trump's executive order. So is their problem 'Orange Man Bad', or 'Capitalism Bad'?" Both, of course.
With, "Supreme Court upholds common law, abolishes split jury decisions. Only a unanimous jury can convict." Not what we've come to expect.
Craaaap, as the next story continues to take shape in my mind, I find myself potentially having to design two or three more new starships, and perhaps launch a fourth plotline to weave in, since I spent all that effort fleshing out the Order of Librarians. Good thing I read all those Tom Clancy novels. The Muse speaks: SRD - Special Retrieval Division.
"Gun safety groups concerned" about something they're making up and lying about.
GENOCIDE IS NOT HYPERBOLE BECAUSE THEY HATE US AND WANT US TO DIE.
Michael G. sends, "China Rejects Demands for Outside Investigation into Wuhan Coronavirus Outbreak."
Both Michael and blogbrother SMLE Fan send, in SMLE Fan's words, "A reminder that, so far as a Greatest Generation is concerned, it was more than us who answered the call."
Just the other day I was mentioning chicken-pox parties. Handled wrong from the beginning.
"Religion of Peace" to which dot connect
Vimeo joins the Google/YouTube Axis in the Culture Wars.
Bears repeating: Court upholds right of armed citizen to shoot police officer in defense. Like I was saying just yesterday. "When agents of the government act as criminals, they should not be surprised when citizens treat them as criminals."
Codrea revisits another front in the Culture Wars.
Michael G. observes, "If they are going to try to take advantage of ChiGov virus to get what they want, then we can do the same to try to get what we want."
Made some slight adjustments to the design of the first starship for the next story. It could take quite some time to get this one up to speed. Aurora took about eleven years to finish, and I started creating the universe another decade-plus before that.
Michael G. sends "YouTube pulls videos that disagree with WHO." But that's not "censorship".
Followed by, "'University, in midst of COVID refunds and plans for student fee hike, hires chief diversity officer.' Priorities!" "She will earn $140,000 annually" out of your decades-long soul-crushing debt. Don't go to college it's a terrible mistake.
To which both Michael and blogbrother SMLE Fan add, "77% of colleges use secret social media blacklist to censor the public, in violation of First Amendment."
Heard this one on Rush Limbaugh this morning: Michael Moore Admits He Had No Idea Where the Juice to Power Electric Cars Came From. Yes they really are that ignorant.
And they really are mentally ill.
GENOCIDE IS NOT HYPERBOLE
Remember when Obama was (still barely) President and Iran boarded a couple US Navy boats and captured the crews? I think Trump remembers. (By the way this whole story arc, which took several years to complete after writing the first part, was inspired by the USS Pueblo incident which happened shortly after I was born.)
Yesterday it was backlash against de Blasio. Today it's OKAY KAREN
Backlash in Japan of all places.
More on that alternate front in the Culture Wars.
SpaceX of course has another successful launch and landing, and now DreamChaser joins the game.
Quite some time ago the Trump Cures Cancer meme appeared and now Michael G. sends "U.S. Approves an At-Home COVID-19 Test - But Four States Ban It."
Followed by, as Heinlein's Crazy Years roll on, free speech has already been an early victim.
Then, "'How Did CBS Celebrate Earth Day? Declaring Humans Aren’t Needed.' Yeah, you guys first." Genocide is the plan.
The place where Britain used to be has never been a free country.
Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends, "In which a towelhead is smarter than an entire political class."
Another knife in the back from NSSF.
Entertainment rot is getting worse all the time. Then they blame "racism" and "sexism" when nobody wants to buy their hate-filled garbage.
"Doublethink is the act of simultaneously accepting two mutually contradictory beliefs as correct...."
BURN THE COLLEGES
"The anger came from employees who’d determined they’d make more money by collecting unemployment benefits than their normal paychecks."
IT WILL ALL COME CRASHING DOWN and that's what some people want.
Years ago Virginia Citizens Defense League restored the natural human right to keep and bear arms on National Park lands. Now the US Army Corps of Engineers is also considering removing infringements.
Still Constitutional Carry action in Tennessee, with Second Front implications too.
The other day I mentioned how Reagan and Thatcher won the Cold War. Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends, "Build a navy to challenge the Americans, they said. It'll be easy, they said."
Michael G. sends "Oh Noes! Racism in Atlanta! And by 'racism' they mean 'not denying reality as demanded by the politically correct'?" It's not "racist" if the Chinese Flu really did come from China and the dictator of communist China really does look like Winnie the Pooh.
Hey, pigs. We have you outnumbered, you are not the good guys, and we're better shots. Maybe you should rethink your career choice.
"YOUR" "FAIR" "SHARE"
For years I've been pointing out how genocide is not hyperbole and Michael G. sends yet another example: "They hate us, and want us to die. Followed of course by the 'I was only kidding' defense."
And then this happens.
Not unrelated, blogbrother SMLE Fan sends two Americas. No peace.
No longer regretting never having served in the military, Chapter MMMMMMCLIV.
On radio "news" this morning I heard ABC claiming fifty thousand Americans had died from the Chinese Flu which-of-course-they-won't-name-as-such. We know that's a lie, among so many others. But the EBT-swipers swallow every one and call the pigs on the rest of us.
An increment in Occupied California of all places.
What are you doing for the cause?
Michael G. sends "The new Caliphate province of Minnesotastan."
Followed by, "More evidence fish tank cleaner death was murder." Lying about everything all the time.
With moving goalposts which segues to
Chinese Flu has been handled wrong from the beginning.
As though someone wanted to crash the global economy on purpose.
Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends visual aids:
Go ahead. Call me "racist".
Michael G. sends "How New Yorkers respond to a crisis. So these are the people we should look up to and emulate?"
Followed appropriately by our intellectual betters. Wouldn't trust them to tell me it rains in Seattle BECAUSE THEY DON'T KNOW WHERE THAT IS.
And as if on cue, "Dr. Birx discovers the Gell-Mann amnesia thesis. That when you see the media talk or write about something you know intimately you realize they are full of crap, then believe them when they cover something you don't know." Which segues to,
"Danish Bible Society writes Israel out of the Bible (both testaments). For progressives, whatever they believe in at this moment is Holy Writ and everything must conform to this. Orwell would not be surprised."
WRONG FROM THE BEGINNING CRASHING THE ECONOMY FOR NO REASON IT'S ALL LIES
It's not paranoia if Google really is Orwell's Ministry of Truth.
Entertainment rot visual aid o' the day:
Remember they don't see us as human beings.
Remember they are the racists. By which is meant,
For all you new owners:
Yesterday I posted that Doctor McCoy meme and now Michael G. sends Maurice Hilleman.
And then I got out of bed and
went back to work.
Michael G. sends hate-filled psychotic hypocrites in this horrible place.
Nineteen Eighty-Four as an instruction manual, Chapter MMMMMMCLVII.
Which is also demographic warfare Trump godsdammit
HANDLED WRONG FROM THE BEGINNING
comes from Republican NRA members with MAGA hats. Right?
Entertainment is deliberately rotten.
And the entertainers hate us and want us to die.
Michael G. sends backlash in the place where Germany used to be of all places.
Democrats are the party of rape and lies. They don't want their victims able to defend themselves.
Vegas still stinks and that could be deliberate.
Codrea observes, Hollywood has always been rotten.
Michael G. sends yet more of the concerted and deliberate effort to misinform everyone about everything.
When totalitarians collide. "The goal of the global-warming crowd has never been to save the planet. Their goal has always been power...."
I was promised a depopulation event but no, all those people are still alive and still stumbling through life three-quarters blind. And eventually they'll all be back on the roads....
Vaccine progress. Get out of the way. Which segues to,
Michael G. sends moon mining. Free Luna. Scroll down for a groovy animation of the colonization of Mars featuring SpaceX Starships. Which I have also pondered.
Fairfax godsdammit this horrible place the GOP is running a "health coach" as a placeholder against career parasite Blumenauer.
Am I living on the other side of a thin slum wall from this? There is reason to ask.
All that blood and treasure spent on Afghanistan for what? If you're going to war go to win and if you're not going to win don't go.
HYPOCRISY AND LIES
Lying about everything, all the time.
IT IS ALL CRASHING DOWN
Silver lining. And a whole lot more arms in circulation.
Perhaps related, blogbrother SMLE Fan sends, "I'm'a thinking this is a half measure. I would revoke statehood and declare them a territory, and let them try again."
Followed by potential SCOTUS action but considering how they punted in that recent New York case maybe that's not Lighter after all, though Codrea has perspective. But it does segue to
Backlash against entertainment rot. Have I mentioned I write my own? And on that note a brief prologue for the next story approaches, likely this weekend if not sooner.
Michael G. observes "Virtue signaling is actually idiocy signaling: The butter maiden was designed by a Native American." Which reminds me yet again of the lions. (And as if on cue.)
Homeschooling visual aids. Burn the government schools and the colleges too. To which dot connect,
Warnings-used-as-instruction-manuals, Aldous Huxley edition. Yes I actually read books. (And maybe write some.)
A plague of Karens.
Real Space Enthusiasts Hate NA$A why are we still building the thing?
Michael Vanderboegh speaks from beyond the grave.
