HELP ME GET OUT OF THIS HORRIBLE PLACE
6253 Saturday, 1 August 2020:

The World Sucks

The libraries have also been shut down during the panic
and now I have items coming through on hold,
but I don't want to be treated like diseased cattle
with their stupid nonsensical procedures
just to pick up a book to read
which I probably don't have time for anyway.
Canceling all holds until sanity returns.
Besides they have terrorist symbology on their front door.


But the drooling psychotics on TV really believe I'm the terrorist.

Michael G. sends, "The media covers up real hate crimes."

Followed by WRONG FROM THE BEGINNING

ALL LIES FROM THE BEGINNING

Michael then sends "Wesleyan U student expelled for exercising free speech. Reinstated after proving she wasn't even the one talking" but not Lighter because "Wonder how long before they eliminate the 'I didn't even say anything!' loophole to rules against hate speech." And that's different from anonymous denunciations and show trials from Stalin's Soviet Union to Hitler's Germany to Robespierre's France how exactly?

Back here zombie apocalypse was on my list of things to come and now Michael sends "A very 2020 scientific discovery."

Then, "If we won't do the job, we won't let you do it either: Montgomery County harms children by closing private schools." Monopoly of indoctrination. "The county’s true reason for closing the schools probably is to prevent them from competing for students with the public schools, which remain closed, and will only teach students online." Because tax-eating bureaucrats can't survive competition.

Burn the government schools.

MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD tempered by massive incompetence which reminds me I grow increasingly weary of being the only work ethic amid a herd of snowflakes and millennials why am I the only one doing ALL this work while everyone else sits around playing with their phones. At least in comments to the linked article I see I'm not alone in my observations or frustrations. People really are that stupid and worthless.

Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends the stolen memes o' the day:

HEY REMEMBER WHEN THE NATIONAL SOCIALISTS BURNED BOOKS

  • "Our major cities have been captured by lunatics." Comment: "The cops don't enforce the law. They do as their masters bid them to do. They obey the hand that feeds them. This was Malkin's epiphany from this. I could have told her this 25 years ago, but it's been super blatant since Charlottesville." Never trust a cop of any kind. The invention of police was a terrible mistake. Police should not exist. Which segues to
  • ALL THAT TRAINING. The rear sight is dovetailed in the slide. Go to Harbor Freight and get a bench vise and a brass punch set. YOU F***ING IGNORANT INCOMPETENT MORONS. And if there's going to be a civil war, I like my side's chances.
  • Remember, peasant, you're not paying "your" "fair" "share".
  • Michael G. sends "Sen. Feinstein doesn't want Americans to sue China over their virus. No surprise who she thinks she should protect."
  • "The court date was July 7 but on the back of the postcard the date it was mailed was July 16. This particular man had driven three hours each way and waited 3 hours on a line to find out he’d missed his online appearance." Explain in small words how a mistake of this magnitude, made by a city run by Democrats for generations, in a state run by Democrats for decades, is Trump's fault.

    The World Sucks

    Another neighbor has just texted me
    that the thing on the other side of the wall
    has not been going to its parole officer,
    so a warrant is in process.

    And how many wrong-address raids
    have I linked in just the last month?
    To say nothing of how Portland Police
    have repeatedly proved themselves
    to be on the side of the mobs.

    I must escape this horrible place
    before it murders me.
    Nowhere to go and
    no way to get there.


    Michael G. sends "How to get Americans to take ChiGov virus vaccine. Oddly, none of the methods they are studying include 'Convincingly prove that it is safe and effective'. Isn't that why they say we can't take Hydrochloroquine, that it hasn't been proven to be safe and effective? (Despite its decades of use for the 'safe' part.)" "The options they are studying include shame and anger techniques.... That’s sick and creepy." Which segues to the stolen memes, some of which come from Tucson Tom, benevolent donor of the Queen:

    HANDLED WRONG FROM THE BEGINNING "Yes, he said the taboo thing: people who face no fatal threat need to get it.... When famed statistician and immunologist Knut Wittkowski went public with the basics of viruses, he created shock and scandal. YouTube even deleted his videos!"

    ALL LIES FROM THE BEGINNING

    Michael then sends "Don't trust China, China is asshoe!"

    Hire people based on their skin color or else.

    Immigrants Contributing to Society

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

    Never forget they hate us and want us to die.

  • Michael G. sends escalation in this horrible place. Though we should be taking notes on how to manipulate enemy responses - if MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD gets the senile child-molester into power, his racist-sexist vice-president will declare war on us, and we've repeatedly established there is no order police will not obey. By which I mean,
  • Michael follows with "Ammon Bundy supports defund the police. I seem to recall that Vanderboegh said something about the Bundys getting suckered by an agent provocateur. Still, when you've been threatened by the authorities multiple times and shot at at least once, that tends to have an effect on your thoughts." Which I have been pondering for quite some time.
  • Oh look yet another Democrat politician stealing hundreds of thousands of other people's dollars.
  • "PROTECT" AND "SERVE" WHO?

    The World Sucks

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


    Let's just start with the stolen memes:

    The utter mindlessness of mask-wearing. Soon to be at the point of a government gun. "Had we not panicked and tried to slow the spread, the disease would have run its course" WRONG FROM THE BEGINNING

    LIES FROM THE BEGINNING

    AND THEN AUSTRALIA GOES FULL MASK-NAZI.

    Oh look even more monopolistic censorship.

    Oh look even more RINO backstabbers.

    Oh look even more Republican NRA members with MAGA hats.

    Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends "They're just trying to get our hopes up: Democrats are contemplating secession and potential civil war as they game out possible scenarios for a closely contested election."

    Followed by even more violence in this horrible place, commenting, "Why am I not surprised? I'd be even less surprised to find out that it was the media who suggested it." They want to hide behind "press" "credentials"? Sherman was arguably a war criminal but he was right about the press wasn't he.

    Not for the first time I say sit down and shut up Neil you're not even a real scientist your only claim to credibility is that Carl Sagan patted you on the head and gave you a book.

    Some people say teachers' union strike as though it would be a bad thing.

    The infection spreads.

    "Green" "Energy"

    Fairfax you ignorant slut

    WHO OWES REPARATIONS

    Michael G. sends, "One of the basic tasks of the political Left, not only in contemporary America but on a worldwide basis ever since the French Revolution, is to identify those social institutions that are healthy and functional, then ruin them completely, and call this result 'reform.'"

  • Followed by, Winston Smith is alive and well and loves Big Brother.
  • Then, we have to destroy the economy to save the economy.
  • Oh look yet another LIAR WITH A BADGE.
  • And all his murderous sociopath "brothers in blue".

    FROM THE

    Oh look even more entertainment rot.

    Republican NRA members
    with MAGA hats

    Immigrants Contributing to Society with demographic warfare sauce

    To which Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, adds "Peaceful and tolerant: Muslims pitch fit, billboard management service refuses to sell space for Hindu holiday message. In NYC, in what was deemed an 'excellent victory for pluralism, human rights and rule of law.' This comes to mind."

    STOP USING ORWELL AS AN INSTRUCTION MANUAL and burn the government schools

    Michael G. sends, "They want old people to die. Especially old white people. After all, after they are dead they will vote Democrat in perpetuity."

  • Michael G. sends, "The Democrats don’t have to cheat in the casting of ballots. They simply don’t have to count the ballots at all.... The Postal Service will conveniently shut down, unable to deliver the ballots." The same postal service whose union has already endorsed the senile child-molester and whose employees are caught on video throwing Republican campaign mail in a dumpster. And I have to go into at least three of those places every day for my job.
  • Followed by, "Is someone charged with upholding the law above the law...?"
  • Then, "Armed Neighbors Defend Seattle Police Chief's House From Mob. Too bad the Chief has no responsibility to protect her neighbors." To which Codrea adds a pointed question.
  • Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends the next Horst Wessel. "They castrated the police, and when Chauvin, et al, are acquitted, it'll be Fun Time."
  • But calling police "death squads" is still not slander.

  • Remember any government tool used against your enemies today can be used by your enemies against you tomorrow.
  • "YOUR" "FAIR" "SHARE"

    In Lighter News

    Someone to vote for in North Carolina, and someone to punish as well.

    Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends New Gun Owner Guide: Finding Firearm Training. "Plus, we have cookies. AND BACON."

    The World Sucks

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

    Thoughts for the day:

    “If the innocent honest Man must quietly quit all he has for Peace sake, to him who will lay violent hands upon it, I desire it may be considered what kind of Peace there will be in the World, which consists only in Violence and Rapine; and which is to be maintained only for the benefit of Robbers and Oppressors.” ~ John Locke

    “One of the common failings among honorable people is a failure to appreciate how thoroughly dishonorable some other people can be, and how dangerous it is to trust them.” ~ Thomas Sowell

    And as if on cue Michael G. sends "Chutzpah: Seattle protestors demand city provide them with protective gear." Timely Visual Aid.

    Followed by Georgetown U students demand kangaroo courts.

    To which Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, adds "Massive voter fraud. Aiming to elect the senile groper to get that hard-left VP into the top spot posthaste."

    Bears repeating: Senile.

    And then psychosis happens.

    And so does blatant heavy-handed propaganda. To which dot connect,

    Any "journalist" who tries to not be an enthusiastic minion of Joseph Goebbels is driven out and destroyed.

    Then even more psychotic gibberish in the government schools. Which should be burned to the ground for the children.

    ALL LIES FROM THE BEGINNING

  • Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "Tyranny, plain and simple: There’s nothing to say, other than that the Sheeple are already cheering this horror."
  • Remember there is no order police would not obey.
  • And this horrible place is in the very best of hands.
  • I wouldn't mind seeing a giant flaming meteor in my rear-view mirror if I ever manage to escape this communist-occupied lunatic-run asylum.
  • Still losing ground in Occupied Virginia.
  • Michael G. sends, "Corrupt St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner Survives Primary Challenge After Soros Drops Six-Figure Check to Save her Campaign." Remember it's THEIR system.
  • Followed by Your Tax Dollars At Work.
  • Any cop who tries to not unquestioningly destroy innocent citizens to further a political agenda can expect to lose his pension.
  • Got your "culture of corruption" right here.
  • Remember, peasant, society needs police to protect us from illegal drugs.
  • It's not paranoia if there is a stigma attached to veterans seeking help.
  • "PROTECT" AND "SERVE" WHO?

    Schadenfreude: Gov. Andrew Cuomo Worries That Wealthy New York City Residents Won't Return. I'm more worried they'll bring the rot with them, wherever they end up.


    6258 Thursday, 6 August 2020:

    On this 75th anniversary
    of the first of only two times in history
    that nuclear weapons were actually used in war,
    I would remind you that a conventional invasion
    would have resulted in half a million or more
    American casualties, and that the
    Japanese government's own estimates were
    twenty million Japanese civilian deaths.
    They had schoolgirls training
    with bamboo spears and
    mines on handheld poles
    to oppose our landings.
    The entire nation was
    prepared to commit suicide
    rather than surrender.

    The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki,
    legitimate strategic targets,
    military bases and industrial centers,
    prevented a war of extinction.
    The Japanese nation, culture and race
    would not exist today
    if the atomic bombs had not been used.
    And remember one more thing:
    They started it.


    The World Sucks

    MASK-NAZIS BURN IN HELL

    Michael G. sends, "Muslim lives matter!" 'While it is seeking to indict Israeli officials for their ostensible "war crimes" against Palestinians, the PA leadership is working to strengthen its relations with China, where more than one million Muslims are being held in detention in re-education camps.'

    Followed by freezing to death in the dark in the place where Germany used to be.

    Then, professor barred from teaching class critical of Marxism. Don't go to college.

    Aaaaand Twitter Staffer Who Announced Trump Censorship Used to Work for Kamala Harris. Of course.

    With, "If you teach children to be irrationally fearful they will be irrationally fearful."

    When I say "burn the government schools" this is what I mean.

    The Other Side can't imagine anyone not being crooked like them.

    Real Space Enthusiasts Hate NA$A, Chapter MMMMMMCCLVIII. "Not Actually Science Anymore." In my fictional future history I have made no mention of black holes because the nearest suspected one is something like a thousand light-years from here and the extent of exploration by the time I've written to is maybe a quarter of that.

    But hey let's talk about institutional racism.

  • Tell me again which is the party of racism.
  • And the culture of corruption.
  • Oh look yet another child-rapist with a badge.
  • Oh look yet another ("alleged") lying murderer with a badge.
  • Hey remember when body cameras were going to restore the public's trust in the law enforcement community
  • Meanwhile in their system, Michael G. sends, "Judge: 'This is why precedent is wrong, but I'm still going to follow it.'" "...[T]he assumption that police were too stupid to not violate people’s constitutional rights in good faith...."
  • Followed by, "Reminder: [Democrat Muslim Minnesota Attorney General, representative, and alleged abuser of women, Keith] Ellison told women not to report rape to the cops. I'm kind of down with that. I don't want women to report rape to cops, I want armed women to report dead attempted rapists to cops." Which I have also pondered but think about the kind of people who don't want women able to defend themselves.
  • Then, "Dem official lies for Dem campaign ad. In further news, water is wet, fire burns, the sun appears to rise in the east and bears use nation's forests as toilets."
  • As Michael has pointed out many times, if it weren't for double standards, they'd have no standards at all.
  • To which he adds the Environmental Protection Punishment Agency.
  • With, as Stalin said, "It's not who votes that counts, it's who counts the votes." Or even allows anything onto the ballot in the first place.
  • And as if on cue.


    In Lighter News

    Following yesterday's schadenfreude, Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "That would be a hard no: King Andrew I tells people to come back to NYC. We weren’t finished beating you, says he. We won’t raise your taxes too much more! I am amused to watch NYC implode thanks to its own stupidity. Once people were freed of the need to be physically present in the city for their jobs, there’s absolutely no need to be there for anything. Anecdotally, my mother works for one of the ritzier private elementary schools in Manhattan, one of the ones where you pay $30K for nursery school. Their enrollment is down 25% because their wealthy parents decamped permanently to their vacation homes elsewhere. One of the parents (who works for a major financial firm) told her that the company is never going back to the 9-5 in the office model because the flex time work at home thing actually works better for productivity, and it allows them to dump most of their expensive NYC office space, only retaining the minimum they need for those things that work better in person (like client meetings). Also, said this parent, that their kids were much happier living in a place with an actual outdoors and larger-than-a-closet living area." For how many years have I been saying get out of the cities, for how many reasons?

    Off the plantation

    Days and weeks and months ago was talk of herd immunity to Chinese Flu, and the way to get that is for people to get the Chinese Flu so they can develop, and spread, antibodies for it. Michael G. now sends that very thing.

    To which MidWestReader adds, "The part of [Midwest State] near [City] has gone completely bats*** for masks and lots of seeming adults are absolutely terrified of the Wubonic Plague, despite the numbers from the CDC being obviously inflated--they keep getting caught labeling people who were decapitated in automobile accidents as 'COVID19 deaths' and they would NOT have to do this if the truth were on their side. I would encourage anyone reading this to contemplate the fact that the only reliable test is to get a sample of the live virus from a patient with an active infection and sequence its genome for identification, only nobody anywhere is doing that because it would cost time and money. The antibody tests are only a tiny bit better than a coin flip when it comes to giving correct identification as verified with sequencing the genome of a virus sample from the individual. Coronaviruses (coronavirii?) are an enormous family of respiratory viruses which quite frequently cause the common cold and the short-lived 24-hour respiratory bug that goes around every autumn. The antibody tests are not able to distinguish one coronavirus antibody from another--not reliably, anyway. The CDC gives hospitals $38,000 for every 'COVID19' case they report, no test results required--and every time the CDC changes the diagnostic criteria, those criteria get just a little wider and looser. My evil, cynical mind tells me this can't possibly be a coincidence. Cui bono?"

    MASSIVE

    and the United States Postal Service, again

    NRA has problems and has had them for a long time. They've also been under attack from various enemies for maybe longer. Codrea probably has the clearest analysis.

    Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends, Hawaiian shirts are raaaaacist. Too late....

    Followed by The Next 2020 Thing. "We've seen this movie, or at least read the book."

    Winston Smith is alive and well and introducing legislation to Congress.

    REPARATIONS

  • Michael G. sends implication of politicized enforcement of NICS.
  • Followed by, in a quote attributed to Churchill, an appeaser is one who feeds the crocodile in the hope of being eaten last. "Still, if you’re Governor Kate Brown and Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler it’s just so much easier to blame the chaos on President Trump instead of bad local leadership. As usual, the Democrats running the state have a set narrative that’s as laughable as it is wrong."
  • Then, "Robert Reich doesn't want poor people living in his neighborhood." He wants them living in ours. At the point of a government gun.
  • With, "He CAN be taught! Sort of. The only reason he cares is because he is worried that it is helping Trump." "Why do I need an AR15?" "Look out the window." "Why should I vote for Trump?" "Same answer."
  • And, Antifa activist submits false 'terrorist' report to the FBI, preventing a conservative couple from starting a family in the US. But tell me again how I should trust the FBI and how Antifa are the good guys.
  • This is why I haven't even tried to claim unemployment for decades and also why I have no such thing in my fictional future history.
  • Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends, "Superficially, this is a 'can't they both lose' item: Police create super PAC to target ‘defund’ politicians. But it's also a clear sign that the whole Police Industrial Complex has completely outgrown its bounds."
  • Back here SMLE Fan said "1) They'll actually [abolish or rein in police]... which is a goodness thing. 2) They will then proceed to totally f*** it up. 3) It will end up being the last thing we ever hear about divesting ourselves from the badgethugs." Now Codrea has much the same thought.
  • "PROTECT" AND "SERVE" WHO?

    In Lighter News

    In my fictional future history I postulate high-efficiency fusion technology and a Cheap Energy Age. Both Michael G. and blogbrother SMLE Fan send working on it, the latter adding, "Seems like something that would act like dilithium, but without the handwavium."

    Speaking of, caseless firearm ammunition has long been a science fiction trope - I've used it myself. Most attempts seem to focus on a propellant block with a projectile attached to or embedded into it but perhaps a step backward is in order.

    Running low on groceries.
    I can afford them, I have a job and income,
    but to all the other reasons I hate going to market,
    now is added the mask-Nazis.
    Hate this place so much.


    Couple days ago I reposted my annual analysis of the justification for using atomic bombs on Japan, in which I opined that destroying Hiroshima and Nagasaki saved millions of Japanese lives. Michael G. now sends, "Why didn't we blockade Japan into surrender? This popped up in my feed today, and I remember watching it when it was first posted. It does a pretty good job of explaining why the results would have been far worse than what we did, or even invasion." And yet right here in Havana-on-the-Willamette I drive past what I've been told is a copy of the Hiroshima Peace Dome at least once a day.

    Michael follows with "College snitch culture. If being offended grants power, of course more are going to be offended." Which segues to a thing I received in email:

    And then even more blatant discrimination happens.

    MASSIVE ELECTORAL FRAUD INCOMPETENCE and I have to go into at least three of those places every single day for my job knowing what kind of people they are.

  • Herschel Smith sees both sides of a patent-infringement suit brought by a manufacturer whose leading customer is government-costumed sociopaths who buy those products with their victims' taxes. I have extremely limited experience with a Holosun red-dot sight, in one or two 3-Gun matches some years ago before the universe pooped on me again and I lost independent transportation, but they seem to be of good quality and are vastly more affordable than any competitor which approaches said quality. See also detailed analysis in comments.
  • And calling police unquestioning murderous sociopaths is not slander. No order they would not obey.
  • Selective and malicious enforcement of "law" is a definition of tyranny.
  • Liberty Doll also analyzes the latest attack on NRA.
  • Can't they both lose

If you find this fictional future history entertaining, please consider a charitable donation through the PayPal button at the top or bottom of most pages on this site. Thank you. Progress on future episodes continues. I keep a couple scrap files, one a plain text file linked on the desktop, which I can bring up quickly to jot notes, or keep pre-written HTML code I use repeatedly for this blog for copy-pasting. Another such file is HTML (I used to compose in a proper word processor then laboriously transcribe to HTML, but for the past several years of writing I've just been doing it straight in my HTML editor, copying and renaming and adjusting template files as necessary) for the ongoing story, where I'm dumping in all kinds of tidbits to be used months or years from now, explaining the origins or capabilities of the characters, things and people they run into.

    The World Sucks

    BRAINWASHING IN THE GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS "When adults ask children to keep secrets from parents it is a sign of an abusive relationship."

    Michael G. sends "MSM double standard on display again. Bad bikers will kill us all by spreading disease with their rally. If only they had the protective aura of social justice like Antifa and BLM." Last I checked, South Dakota and Iowa were the only states that hadn't gone Full Mask-Nazi.

    Followed by, in my fictional future history I postulate an authoritarian backlash driving France back to world dominance, control of the United Nations, transformation into the Terran Empire, the near-extermination of Islam, and a war of conquest against my fictional future Republic. Michael now observes "Tales from the death throes of France. Refuse to allow it to happen here. I noted a bit about a gang war between two Muslim drug gangs with military grade weaponry that mentioned France has no acknowledged right to bear arms." "We only love what hates us, anything that destroys us is seen as great." (See India below for Lighter News.)

    Then, "Gov. Cuomo setting up ChiGov virus test centers... in TX, FL and GA. Can you say, 'Cooking the books to make GOP look bad and cover up my own malfeasance'?"

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "Barbarians everywhere: From South Africa, a White student picks up garbage while black student 'protesters' dump it back out, and black leadership cheers the litterers. From Utah, despite the scare headline, this woman isn’t facing massive criminal charges just for buying paint, she’s facing charges for organizing, preparing, and then leading a riot in which acts of vandalism, property destruction, and assaults took place, and in which the paint she bought was used in that riot. Typical leftist response: 'In most states, a felony conviction means that you can never vote again, so you get criminalization of dissent and disenfranchisement in one convenient fascist package.' And today’s report from Bizarro World, where left is right, day is night, and we’ve always been at war with Eastasia: Somehow Facebook is a tool of right wing white supremacy? I’d laugh if it weren’t for the fact that the lefties eat this stuff up and ask for more."

    Followed by, "Whoda thunk? Turns out a whole bunch of people (like perhaps between 20 and 50% of the population) might be naturally immune to the WuFlu. Weren't we told that nobody had ever been exposed to such a virus before (never mind that the common cold (in all of its many strains) is a member of the Coronavirus family)?"

    Michael G. asks, "What if nuclear power hadn't been strangled in its crib in the 70s? Unfortunately this alt-history is behind a paywall. If they ever physically reopen the libraries I may have to see if I can find this issue." Well there's sometimes a way around that.

    No longer regretting never having served in the military, Chapter MMMMMMCCLXII. "That allegation was false. It didn’t matter." Michael G. observes, "If he had been a Muslim who openly called for jihad, going by the record that would have been totes OK."

    Followed by, "Rest of developed world strongly restricts mail-in voting because of fraud. Funny how our betters say we should follow every self-evidently stupid idea because foreigners do, but when even the foreigners see it is stupid then they rediscover American exceptionalism."

    MidWestReader sends shopping report: "I went to Cabela's and saw they have a blued Ruger Mk. III with fixed sights and the 6" tapered barrel for $250, in nice shape. I have enough .22s and shoot them too little, but it tempts me for no rational or defensible reason. I could not examine it more closely, as the store had a line out the door of elderly Boomers from the 'burbs, who waited until they could smell the smoke themselves before they could believe the world was on fire, squabbling over the last couple of firearms designed after 1880. One especially sad case was a woman who had to be in her 70s or 80s, with wrists like broomsticks, who could not pull back the slide on any handgun she was shown, even a fullsize Kimber 1911 in 9mm, which I think has only a 10 or 12 pound recoil spring. She said she wanted a CCW permit and 'something she can carry.' She couldn't operate the slide on a modern pistol. Can she pull a double action revolver trigger? A handgun is easier to use, in terms of physical demands, than a tomahawk or a gladius or a polearm. That doesn't mean it requires no strength or dexterity at all.
    "Saw two containers of powder, both for belted magnum rifle calibers and not useful in other applications. Saw one carton of primers--for .50 BMG. Saw .25 ACP and .32 ACP, and .454 Casull, in handgun ammo. A handful of .22 Mag was there but no .22 LR, of course. Some 12 and 20 gauge slugs were available but no buckshot. A little .308 ammo with match bullets was available but nothing at all for 5.56mm or 7.62x39."

  • Think about the kind of people who don't want you able to defend yourself.
  • Michael G. sends, "About that Boston rapist who raped while out on bail: Turns out a left-wing group paid his bail for him." The same people who don't think women should be allowed to carry guns. Which segues to,
  • "Princeton will keep Title IX kangaroo courts by pretending they aren't Title IX courts." Don't go to college.
  • Followed by a Gun Control Success Story: "Darn those MAGA-hat-wearing gun owners!"
  • Then, "One disadvantage of a may-issue concealed carry license system, in which a government official gets to choose who gets a license, is the risk of corruption." I would replace the word "risk" with "inevitability".
  • Blogbrother SMLE Fan requests "moar rope, plz:" Scorned Governor Punishes Casino That Helped Christians Fight Lockdown Order.
  • And then Gretchen Whitmer happens again. No order police would not obey.
  • Japan is not capable of imagining being a free country.
  • And Hawaii has never been a free state. "It’s tough to owe permanent allegiance to a government that denies your basic human rights." Which is kind of the triggering premise of my entire fictional future history. I think I started writing this universe when Clinton was still in power....
  • "Why bother anymore? Why build anything anymore?"
  • Your Tax Dollars At Work for people who won't
  • "PROTECT" AND "SERVE" WHO?

    In that first link I left a comment asking the above question, prefaced with "Why do we even have police?" In response came:
    "They do serve a proper purpose in American society. That's the reason we have them, AND why we entrust them with the legal monopoly on use of force. But they were never meant to be revered in American society, let alone worshiped and praised as its "heroes." No no, the proper reaction to law enforcement is begrudging acceptance and distrust.
    "And the reason for that is BECAUSE they have the legal monopoly on use of force, in the name of the State.
    "The problem is that cops aren't really like citizens anymore. They're not one of us. They're turned against us, and charged with responding when we step against the law. That is, they become dogs of the State - which, once upon a time, we could rely on them to protect and serve. We didn't really see or hear from them unless they were intervening/responding to a rights deprivation, or we called them.
    "But now they're nearly omnipresent, meddling in our affairs for no good reason, and apparently more loyal to the State than they are the citizenry. And if they're not abdicating their duty like here in Portland, they're serving the State by means of harassment and intimidation.
    "Because they do as they're commanded, like good dogs.
    "This nation has a very, very serious problem with how it polices its citizens - that one fact is the single legitimate point that BLM has. Law enforcement has lost its way, and has become the enforcement arm of our corrupted leadership. And if we can't trust our cops to throw down their badges in protest, and serve the justice they claimed to represent - then they're part of the problem.
    "What they should do is go arrest the mayor. But they won't. They won't dare bite the hand that feeds them. Which is yet another illustration of the glaring problem with law enforcement in this country."

    FROM THE

    I have said I need to escape this horrible place before it murders me and that's not hyperbole because

    "Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them...."

    Hey remember those bridges falling out of the sky and those Navy ships running into each other? Michael G. sends more of the same. People really are that stupid and worthless. See comments also.

    Followed by, "Chicago Black Lives Matter Leader Declares Looting Gucci and Macy's 'Is Reparations'. One commenter says, 'Shoot looters.' What a softy. I say 'Time On Target'. It's not like there's anything worth saving there."

    MidWestReader sends shopping update: "Went to Cabela's again this morning and found it somewhat less busy. The Mk. III with the tapered barrel -the only used gun on the shelf that wasn't priced higher than new - was, of course, the only one, so far as I could tell, that was sold. They are down to an assortment of high-dollar Kimber products, high-dollar 'Zev' modified Glocks, a scattering of used handguns (what's left are oddball things like S&W and SIG M1911s, several identical Ruger Super Redhawks all marked as 'used,' maybe demos from a SHOT show that got passed around), and so on, for which they are asking higher-than-new prices. I think they had one lonely Beretta 92, and an assortment of Ruger Blackhawks and Vaqueros and various Italian Peacemaker clones. Lots of 'sporting' long-barrel double shotguns, lots of bolt-actions in non-martial calibers with no iron sights, a handful of Henry lever-actions, and some .22s for which they have no ammo, and that's about it. Mind you, no smaller local gun shop I'm familiar with locally is in much better shape. Pretty much everything designed after the Civil War has been hoovered up by panicking Boomers who waited about a year too long to arm themselves. The various stores are still getting in a trickle of new inventory, but you'd better be in line at the door when they open or you'll never see any of it. I'm really, really, really sick of twelve years of ammo panics and gun panics, by the way. If you couldn't tell."

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "Remember, voter fraud never happens, you racist. Those Eeeeeevilll Republicans are trying to suppress minority voters again, trying to stop voter fraud that there’s no evidence that it ever happens. What’s that?

    Followed by MASSIVE ELECTORAL FRAUD and this is why I'm not a "full" Libertarian. Which I have been pondering for a long time.

    MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD

    Let me get this straight: The United States Postal Service, whose generations-long reputation for incompetence has been a source of memes since before the word "meme" was invented, whose labor union has endorsed the senile child-molester, is, somehow, a willing part of a vast right-wing conspiracy to steal the election for Trump.

    And as if that weren't Orwellian enough.

And here I was, thinking that veganism was just a mental disorder. (Humans are omnivores, just look at the teeth!)" Which I observed in almost as many words years ago.

    Followed by entertainment rot (I used to be into BattleTech): "The stupid, it burns. I’ve been playing this stupid miniatures game for longer than I care to think about, and Boy the Eldest Son (age ca. 11) is an enthusiastic accumulator of overpriced plastic toy soldiers. His comment on this article was 'if you think that a game that has alien bug monsters, space demons, insane space elves, and a human empire that feeds psychics to their comatose god-emperor to power a cosmic lighthouse is a good thing to guide your real life, you probably shouldn’t be allowed outside your house.' The Boy is smart, what can I say. Another lesson we teach here in the Trapped in NY home is that if the people who purport to be your friends make you unhappy or uncomfortable all the time, then they really aren’t people you want to be friends with, and you shouldn’t play with them. Some people are just assholes, and we don’t consort with assholes. That said, in 30+ years of tabletop gaming dweebdom, I can recall very few real assholes anywhere (I’ve met far more jerks and assholes in sports and video gaming than in tabletop games.) We’ve had many people go out of their way to be nice to Boy the Eldest at game events." I've seen the same in the Gun Culture, people giving tips, loaning gear. I need to hang out with more of those people.

    There is a white-identity backlash and it would not have happened if other races hadn't declared war on us. All we want is to be left alone.

So the WuFlu, member of a large and widespread family of viruses, causes a lasting immune response just like the overwhelming majority of other viruses. Whoda thunk that? Also, most notable: 'But an outbreak occurred on the ship anyway – someone was early enough in the infection that they hadn’t shown positive yet. This crewmember became sick and the vessel returned to port on Day 18 of the voyage. (Sequencing of viral samples from a number of crew members confirmed that the outbreak seemed to originate from a single source). Testing then and over the next few days showed that 104 of the 120 crew members were now positive for the coronavirus – but not the three who had antibodies beforehand.' Another shock: antibodies to coronavirus function exactly like antibodies should: protecting you from reinfection by a virus. But we need to keep things locked down longer!!!!"

    And as always, burn the government schools.

    Also don't go to college, as Michael adds, "Stanford scraps admission test requirement for medical students. Leeches and purgatives here we come." Note comment: "'It'd be a shame if unqualified applicants come to Stanford as a result of this policy and we suffer the consequences in the coming decades.' My former physician taught at Stanford Medical School in the '70s, when the early rounds of AA students were being shoved ahead of others in the queue -- just like the public university in Ohio that I attended around the same time. His take: these 'students' were unfit for undergraduate university admissions, let alone medical school admissions -- especially at a top-rated institution such as Stanford. At the state school I attended in Ohio, the AA students took almost 2 years of remedial high school courses -- learning to read and write with at least some level of competence as well as to do basic arithmetic (add, subtract, multiply and divide) -- and those 2 years of remedial courses back then counted as part of their 4-year degree. All of this nonsense has brought US to our current position -- dumbed down education graduating dumb students -- into professions where the chances increase by the day that someone will suffer at the hands of such incompetent individuals. Remember, too, that Stanford has already said that it will dumb down its STEM courses because there are so few blacks (and other targeted minorities) in those classes... and guess what results that will produce in another decade going forward. GIGO... true back when it was first used... true today... and it will be true tomorrow, too." Mud huts and witchcraft I told you.

    But tell me again who's waging the war on science. "...[T]he left can tear down, but it cannot build."

I don't want to be anymore specific in case it's one of the fields where anyone not evil is driven out and destroyed, but they responded with two emails, the first said, 'That's unacceptable.' and the second said anyone with that attitude, even as a 'joke' (and yes, they put in the scare quotes) has no business being in the field."

    Then, "AI Company Leaks Over 2.5M Medical Records. Accident? Or bought by personal injury attorneys?"

    And, "Maybe this is why Japanese and Korean tires have taken over, they don't care what woke people think."

    Plus, plagiarism from the Never-Trumpers. The kind of people.

    The other day a major American "news" network openly interfered with the electoral process and it didn't f***ing work.

    This four-stories-at-once thing is challenging... but perhaps also broadening. The trick is to not reveal the juicy bits too soon. I think I did a good job on that with Aurora, particularly the ending which I kind of inadvertently set up years before; though I earlier intended the Anna Nowak thing to go on longer than it did. In the current effort I'm not sure where the Librarian came from or what she's for but the Muse gave her to me so I expect something interesting will be revealed as her own story progresses.

Tried a 100 round tray of CCI 'Clean 22,' this time the high velocity type with the red plastic coating. All fed and cycled, though did not always engage the bolt hold open on the last shot, and the recoil seemed lighter than the Automatch. Got lots and lots of keyholes, to my great consternation, though they did not fly as far from point of aim as the 'standard velocity' with the blue coating did. CCI is usually better than this. But I am not the only one getting keyholes with this stuff. LOTS of people are complaining about that ammo. I know the rifling in the 22/45 looks the same as in the new guns, even Mk. IVs, and if it has worn I cannot tell. It is still clean and sharp, even after 60K+ of cheap bulk pack ammo. I have never had a keyhole with any other type of ammo in this gun. I clean it regularly with a pull-through and carburetor cleaner. I can only assume Ruger is using good steel in these guns, at least the barrels. The bolt and firing pin aren't peened either, nor is the hammer, nor the bolt stop pin. It probably does need a new recoil spring, though, and new springs in the magazines." My personal preference is Federal Champion blue-box, catalog #510, unplated solid. I know it shoots Expert at Appleseed in a 1982 10/22 standard-model barrel. "The store is picked pretty completely clean, but I did see one of the new Springfield 'Ronin' two-tone full-size 1911s in 9mm for $749, which is not bad at all in these crazy times. I don't care for all the feature set, but I am seeing enthusiastic reviews. Maybe someday."

    Followed by "Huge advance in AI medicine: The med schools are going to make it so that no one wants to use a human doctor." And the doctors will treat people based on the color of their skin. Remember that old MASH episode where they had a racist patient and they painted his skin dark and preached a sermon about some black doctor who discovered how to determine blood types for transfusions and then the doctor was injured and bled to death because the hospital wouldn't let him in because it was for whites only?

    MASSIVE ELECTORAL INCOMPETENCE let me tell you, my job requires me to go into at least three separate post offices every day. The people working in any of them can barely speak American, or barely get out of their own way, or both.

    And as if on cue.

    And that's aside from MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD.

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "Another day, another pervert Democrat. And this one is only 19, and did revenge porn on a girl when she was 14 and he was also underage. If he was a Republican, they’d have him up on child pornography charges (which have been applied to teens 'sexting' each other willingly, see here for one example of many) but as a Democrat he get to play the 'troubled childhood' card and gets a free pass." These are the people who think we can't be trusted with guns.

    Aaaand in the sidebar partisan child abuse happens is begged for by the hate-filled brainwashed would-be victim. "At one point she urged progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to adopt her."

    Just a couple days ago Michael G. sent proper use of the English language is racist. Now Jacob adds, "Punctuation is intimidating and racist. Oh, good lord. This is so dumb. Proper punctuation is micro aggression. I can’t even. Full stop." I've seen enough hentai social justice warfare to know where this is going.

    Followed by, "Can’t make this $#!^ up: So Richard Spencer, actual white supremacist neo-Nazi endorses Biden. It makes sense because the Democrats seem to be working quite effectively toward stirring up that race war that he wants. I’m waiting for the Biden campaign to disavow his endorsement. I expect I’ll be waiting quite a while." (...Newsweek still exists?)

    And then, "The NY Slimes is Nervous that Sleepy Joe’s diarrhea of the mouth might cause him problems. By the by, Sleepy Joe had two brain aneurysms in 1988, for which he had brain surgery, and which his surgeon gave him less than 50% chance of having normal function afterwards." Just the guy to be trusted with the nuclear codes. Of course I also see the NYT article as setup for a 25th Amendment opening for President Kamala Harris and then I'd be killed in a drone strike and so would you.

    "If white extremists are so prevalent and dangerous, where are they?" In the fevered imaginations of FBI agents and Hollywood script writers, that's where.

    To which dots Michael G. connects yet another "Hate Hoax in North Carolina. So after the media creates a myth that an anodyne phrase is racist hate speech, a black man tags with that phrase to 'prove' the existence of white supremacists."

    Followed by, "At least 1/4 of child illegals actually adults." Which I have also pondered. "This is in England, but what do you want to bet it is true here as well?"

    Then, "GOP House Members Ask Jeff Bezos To Explain Amazon's Reliance On SPLC" to determine who qualifies for charity partnership.

    To which dot connect treating customers differently based on the color of their skin.

    But that's not something we have to worry about....

    “No one can read our Constitution without concluding that the people who wrote it wanted their government severely limited; the words 'no' and 'not' employed in restraint of government power occur 24 times in the first seven articles of the Constitution and 22 more times in the Bill of Rights.” ~ Rev. Edmund A. Opitz (1914-2006) American minister, author

    "I am increasingly disturbed by the steady, obvious drift of our nation toward a centralization of power of the Federal Government. And in this fact is found the primary reason why I sincerely urge all voters, no matter their present political affiliations, to take a fresh, thoughtful look at the basic Republican philosophy and Republican performance as compared to that of the Democrats. For the hard fact is that under many years of Democratic Party leadership our country has been lured into the ‘easy way,’ a path of federal expediency which, like a narcotic, may give us a false sense of well-being, but in the long run is dangerous to our future, our basic rights, our moral fiber and our individual freedom." - General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force in Europe, 34th President of the United States of America

    Remember these things every time you see the fat, gold-and-jewel-encrusted parasite in line ahead of you at the supermarket, with a thousand-dollar iPhone in one hand and an EBT card full of your taxes in the other.

    And remember too: '...“[P]rogressive” policies that help predators thrive and then give them advantages over the “law-abiding.”' NRA decals and MAGA hats not required. Which I have also pondered.

    Consider also.

    As if on cue, Michael G. sends "Mostly peaceful. The tree of Marxist perfection must be fertilized by the ashes of the innocent?"

    Followed by the wolf issue. Which has been explored for years. Which segues to

    "Ecological work is (wait for it... again) racist."

    As if on cue Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "Wow, just wow. So I used to play Dungeons & Dragons and other RPGs, and I read some blogs and whatnot. This guy was linked from another blog I read, and while he is of no particular significance in and of himself, it’s still a jolt to see that people like this exist. The article is about the idea of giving monsters motivations to be monstrous, rather than just wave your hands and saying 'they’re evil'. That is an interesting idea, but then there’s his examples. Talking about the Champawat Tiger:"
    "When the tiger finally died at the hands of Jim Corbett, the body revealed a different story: The two canine teeth on the right side of her jaw had been broken by a hunter's bullet some 8 years before.
    "The Champawat Tiger was starving."

    "That’s all fine so far, but then we get this gem:"
    "Jim Corbett was called upon to hunt down another fifty maneaters over the course of the next 35 years. Together, those tigers had killed over 2000 people, for much the same reasons as the Champawat Tiger - injury, desperation, starvation, and habitat loss.
    "Would you look at that.
    "The root cause was British colonialism.
    "436 people dead because some dumb s*** went trophy hunting, because he just had to prove how big and strong his penis was to all his dumb s*** friends."

    "Okay....
    "It’s not like people in India haven’t been trophy hunting for tigers since time immemorial, long before the British even existed, much less took over India.
    "And we needn’t rehash the tired old mess about hunters hunting to prove their manliness.
    "And then there’s one of the example motivations he gives:"

    "Fascist bootlickers are kicking down your neighbor's door. The root cause is a horrific mess of systemic racism, the bedding of church and state, economic downturn, and decades-long memetic warfare against populations vunerable [sic] to such ideals."
    "This is the kind of person who can make gaming (or any other hobby) deeply unpleasant, the kind of moron who injects politics into absolutely everything. And worse, they really believe that it’s Our Side who is out to get them.
    "There’s no hope for the world."

    Jacob follows with one I linked in yesterday's Treason roundup: "Another taxpayer-funded Chinese spy. Ho hum, another 'academic' from China turns out to be working for the Party to steal technology, whilst living large on Federal grants. This is an old song. Heck, when I was in graduate school for chemistry back 25 years ago we 'joked' that all the Chinese grad students were spies."

    Way back here I predicted watermelons would become a symbol of "racism" and now fried chicken happens.

    Never forget they really believe their psychotic hate-filled delusions.

    Never forget they hate us and want us to die by which I mean

    Just the other day I was reminded of that MASH episode with the racist sermon and now Michael G. sends death panels remember when everyone made fun of Sarah Palin for warning us about this very thing.

    To which Michael G. adds, "So 'Democracy dies in darkness' was an aspiration, not a warning?"

    Followed by Don't Go to College: "Title IX Strikes Back. Maybe he's guilty, but when you put the credibility of a Yale professor fighting Title IX kangaroo courts against the credibility of a Yale Title IX kangaroo court I know which one I'll trust."

    For weeks now YouTube (which is owned by Google) has ceased sending email notifications of new videos. Now Michael sends "Not even Google engineers understand Google privacy settings. Feature, not bug. Do evil."

    Then, "As California burns, looters target wildfire evacuees. Are those immigrants contributing to society?" Or maybe - it reminded me of something - they were rehearsing for a career opportunity.

    With, "Seattle Rioters Tried to Burn Police Officers Alive By Sealing Precinct Door Shut. And they'll do it to non-cops to." They've already tried. ...And which I have also pondered.

    I am surrounded by creatures like this. One of them may have phoned in a false complaint about my driving today. "They were quickly released without bail."

    As if on cue, Michael sends "Hate hoax? I wonder just how peaceful the peace force she wants to replace the police with would be." I can guess.

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, asks "How long until the mob turns on her? Jacob Blake’s mother is disgusted by riots in her son’s name, doesn’t blame Trump, and wants sane and peaceful discussion. She must be a racist or something."

    The World Sucks

    that walls-closing-in feeling
    every
    day


    RINO backstabbers

    Riots and looting? Michael G. doesn't think so.

    Likewise, "Religion of Peace". "What kind of god is this?"

    Michael follows with "Suicidal lives matter! Someone who kills themselves (and I don't mean 'suicide by cop') is reason to riot and loot because 'social justice'." "A murder suspect committed suicide as police approached.... No matter - they were looking for any excuse to riot."

    "The brand of the anarchist is not logic but envy-driven power: to take it, to keep it, and to use it against purported enemies -- which would otherwise be impossible in times of calm or through the ballot box."

    Then, "Peaceful protest, retail rather than wholesale." "Same day @SpeakerPelosi called Republicans 'domestic enemies' on national television." But Republicans and Trump need to "tone down the rhetoric".

    With, "The (white) commissar vanishes: photos of retired white male professors to be taken down at U. Oklahoma." "[Oklahoma Department of Political Science Chair Scott] Robinson also outlined plans to possibly have poli-sci majors take a required course on race and inequality and announced the creation of some sort of department-level bias response team." Because that's so much more important than whether a bridge or an airliner falls out of the sky.

    And, "Syracuse U places Prof. on leave for saying 'Wuhan Flu' on syllabus. But major US colleges aren't under the thumb of the ChiComs."

    Plus partisan censorship. (See below.)

    Watermelons, fried chicken, and white wine.

    Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends hurricane destruction in the gulf but makes it Lighter by adding "AND WE'LL KEEP THIS UP UNTIL Y'ALL FIRE ALL THE WHITE WEATHERMEN" aaaaand maybe that's not Lighter after all considering current events.

    To which point he adds the murderous thug who almost got his arm shot off in Kenosha, to which Michael G. adds "Even video from the NY Times supports Rittenhouse." While his legal defense fund is arbitrarily shut down and his prosecution is partisan and malicious. Let's also take a look at the "victim". "Feel free to wonder if you should feel bad when a minor shoots a convicted pedophile."

    Party of racism. (Click through for the PJM article and note Trump's support of free-market healthcare which I have also pondered.)

    SMLE Fan also sends entertainment rot. I've already expressed my point of view.

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "A scam within spyware? So there’s a bidding war for that wholly owned subsidiary of the ChiComGov spyware TikTok. The deal is expected to bring $30 billion dollars. This is the way I see this story: ChiComGov creates social spyware platform, and gets to collect data for several years from hundreds of millions of idiots, I mean unsuspecting dupes, including many government officials around the world. They get caught at spying, governments move to ban, the ChiComs get $30 billion in cash on top of whatever they could capture off of all those phones, and everybody’s happy. Or maybe it wasn’t spyware, and they are just happy to cash in on the fact that everyone already assumes that the Chinese are always spying on everything, and they just walk away with $30 billion plus ad revenue from TikTok for basically free. In any case, the ChiComs seem to win this one in every possible way."

    Trump supports space mining, commies want new space treaty. "Space will simply become another failed communist state, dying before it even becomes born." How about f*** all y'all.

    "Green Energy" freezing to death in the dark "The ‘green energy’ regime will 'share the challenge' by creating affirmative action for blackouts, determining which areas lose power and for how long based on racial and economic criteria."

    Remember that aircraft carrier that burned last month? Our Kind guessed what caused it. Eventually the name will come out and it will disappear from the narrative.

    Michael G. sends, "Professors only allowed to have student-approved ideas." Though they do have a point about the police, but they're viewing it from the wrong end of the equation. By which our Founders meant:

    “All men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree.” ~ James Madison (1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 4th US President - speech at the Constitutional Convention, July 11, 1787

    “The trade of governing has always been monopolized by the most ignorant and the most rascally individuals of mankind.” ~ Thomas Paine (1737-1809), US Founding father, pamphleteer, author

    Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends Real Space Enthusiasts Hate NA$A. Hoping to launch their giant tax-eating rocket-to-nowhere sometime late next year, maybe. (While the private sector is looking at two f***ing months at a tiny fraction of the outrageous cost. And Trump's Space Force violates Pournelle's Iron Law. (Still shoulda been the Navy though (and at eight minutes into the video I just linked there it is!).))

    HEY TELL ME AGAIN HOW TRUMP NEEDS TO TONE DOWN THE RHETORIC

    ARE YOU PREPARED?

    Too late: Ammunition prices have roughly doubled, and there isn't any. Too bad for the sheeple who are just now starting to pay attention. If this panic subsides as others have I'll make an effort to stockpile more when prices return to normal, but I don't think the other side will allow the panic to end. You watch, there will be another Chinese Flu, or African Ebola, or Purple Hamster Fever, to crash the economy and make everyone prisoners in their own homes. In addition to the ongoing communist revolution.

    If Trump wins, the left will try to murder us all, and if Trump loses, they will succeed.

    The World Sucks

    Michael G. sends "The predictable result of Black Lies Matter." How the Nazis treated the Jews. And as if on cue,

    "Fire at Delaware Jewish center. They say it's intentional but not a hate crime. Then they say foul play isn't suspected. Think they'd be as diffident if someone tripped and spilled a soda on the sidewalk in front of an African American cultural center?"

    Followed of course by "Not all racial murders matter." Riots and looting? Then,

    "Loyola U forms white accountability group. Not surprising from a Catholic U under Red Francis, the non-Catholic pope."

    So many reasons to don't go to college: "Minnesota college student pleads guity to offering support to terrorists. Sounds like a grateful immigrant contributing to society."

    And then Sweden happens, again.

    I have pondered the abortion issue. Though I still remain anti-prohibition, my position has shifted since it was revealed that Planned Parenthood has been making an industry of baby body parts - fresh.

    Joseph Goebbels is alive and well and working at Showtime. To which dot connect,

    A few days ago I linked this web"comic" describing an incident in the Middle East, and the mindset of the people who fly airliners into skyscrapers. Read that carefully, especially the last panel, hold it in your mind, and then consider this. "That may have been the idea all along."

  • 'First they say: “You don’t need guns, because police are there to protect you” Then they say: “We're defunding the police!” Afterward they say: “...but you still can’t have guns!”'
  • Michael G. sends, "Fuhrer Newsom changes CA reopening rules again. Is it the power trip, or is he dumb enough to think continuing to destroy California will hurt Trump and the GOP? Am embracing the power of 'and'."
  • "Any questions on the sort of people you’re dealing with? Three convicted criminals got shot, one a wife-beater, another a pedophile, and finally one who came after Kyle with a pistol in his hand (who could not legally own that weapon), who were chasing Kyle down after he tried to stop burning of businesses, something the cops wouldn’t do themselves."

    On the Trump Derangement Syndrome front, Michael G. sends "U Penn prof wants investigation of how Trump became a student there in 1966. I'd like an investigation of how the prof became a teacher there." Well we already know that.

    Followed by, "Maybe we should emulate some of the Japanese? Who know that when destructive thieves and vandals invade, you drive them out with force, not try to placate them."

    Then in burn the government schools news, "How can they revolt against the establishment when they are the establishment?"

Oh, and something is going to happen to the Librarian character, I know that much, and I know what she's going to do about it, though details still elude me and I still don't know how she fits into the rest of the story. As for Lorelei, I know where she comes from and what she is, much of that already written, but I intend many more chapters before it is revealed.

    Mask-Nazis Must Die

    The election is Trump's to lose.

    Michael G. sends Trump Derangement Syndrome and psychological projection.

    Followed by "Professors planning to go on strike in protest. Don't throw me in that briar patch. Can't you please make that a permanent strike, thereby reducing the harm you do?"

    He then observes, "BLM doesn't understand attrition warfare. Which is a pretty crappy way to fight if you can avoid it, but it kind of requires you to be a majority not a minority. You have to outnumber the other side to win at a one for one exchange." Well they do have us outnumbered tactically, in the blue cities in the blue states, and the police and governments are on their side.

    The other day I was pondering our Founding supergeniuses Jefferson and Franklin and now Michael sends "Law school removes statues of Jefferson and Franklin. In a preemptive cave."

    Years ago I lost my car and my job because the insurance - Geico may-they-burn-in-Hell - refused to pay after I was struck from behind by some entitled jerk in a shiny new Audi. It's not just me that happens to.
