I am still uninspired by very much in the news – and bored now that winter is closing in and everything has been restricted or shut down by Governor Harkonnen. But, the post is up on time, and there are links to ignore! So without further wallowing, here are your Afternoon Links.
- Execute Order 66…I mean, redraft Article 24!
- …and they will all be counted as Coronavid Deadssss!
- The Kazakh version of Warty Hugeman is so lame.
At least the doll doesn’t talk endlessly.
I thought Lars and the Real Girl was a good movie.
What a waste
I rather thought you might find the guy in your wheelhouse…
More like her dollhouse, amirite?
“I am still uninspired by very much in the news”
The internet seems much more quiet this year than it was this time last year. One would think that there would be much more posting with more people stuck at home, but there isn’t.
Maybe people have finally gotten their fill of outrage and are burned out.
More like pausing to figure out the next thing to be outraged about.
I’m outraged about the lack of outrageous things to be outraged about!
Narrator: And it was this discovery, the recursive outrage, that would go one to power politics for the next generation, and propel Hyperbole into the halls of power.
Then there was another
These owners are sticking their necks out and should be commended. Also love the new trend that all these places are taking by placing temporary banners “renaming” their places as the restaurants and/or retail places they have enjoyed while trying to dictate their plebes to not.
Good those owners.
Good for those owners.
They’re doing the right thing.
I’ve been there a few times.
Wonder where the South Bay guys have been lately, speaking of.
Don’t tell me what to do.
Can we be sure that the bride in that Kazakh wedding isn’t actually white slavery?
I wonder if she ever came back?
I found that while I was searching for another RealDoll post on Craigslist. I can’t find it now, but it was basically some guy asking how he could fix the cigarette burn on his RealDoll.
Guy admitted that he put the cig on her back while doing her doggy style. Got carried away and by the time he regained his senses, she had a cigarette burn on her back.
I wish I could find that again. But it was years and years ago. (pre-2008 I think)
Why are you looking for used RealDolls?
Isn’t the marketing term “previously owned” rather than “used”?
As long as it wasn’t retooled in the process. NTICBYKWIM
Even popes have needs.
Like pooping in the woods?
Doing due diligence. My research eventually made me decide to go with the Fresh Off the Boat mail order bride from Korea instead of a Real Doll.
“Can we be sure that the bride in that Kazakh wedding isn’t actually white slavery?”
I’m sure there are underemployed lawyers lined up around the block to represent her by now.
“Is this the future of classrooms? Face masks that supply students with a steady supply of sterilised air could help prevent the spread of coronavirus in schools, scientist claims”
They just can’t keep their narrative straight can they?
Each student gets to sit in an individual whirlpool full of hand sanitizer.
In the case of a Rona outbreak, please make sure you affix your emergency mask before helping any of the elderly or obese around you.
Unfortunately not a joke: during my five hours of coofvid emergency response training, we were told that if we were at home and having a heart attack, to put on our masks before passing out so as not to expose the ambulance crew.
Even if you suppose maskss work… wouldn’t the ambulance crew have better ones? I mean, they deal with people who are actually at risk.
Because restricting your breathing is what you want to do when you’re having a heart attack.
These people aren’t just stupid, they’re evil.
In addition to first responders having a lot of adrenaline junkies and Big Damn Heroes, there are an awful lot of panic porn aficionados.
It doesn’t surprise me.
It gives them a reason to be.
I would have walked out after 5 minutes
I have the sinking feeling that something like that will be the last straw and I will end up in jail for sticking a mask right up someone’s ass.
I would love to see Suthen in a corporate work place. You would lose your fucking mind at the bullshit HR has us go through these days.
When we were in office and had to sit through that shit, I would just look at my phone and dick around on Glibs or text other coworkers about how dumb this shit is.
Needs more bubble wrap.
So, this would be relevant.
Such good articles coming from them.
Thank you for the link, juris. I will send the article to others.
It has been some time since I visited this website and even longer since I posted a comment, so I am not aware if anyone has posted a link to a Paul Joseph Watson video. I will do so in the interest of learning your opinion and the opinion of others here. I do not agree with several of the points he makes in his various videos (although I do agree with several of the points he makes in the video I chose for today, which relates to the article for which you provided a link).
The video also has elements that I think may resonate with some of our fellow commentators.
Regardless, I would like anyone’s views on what he discusses/rants about in this video. He uses foul language with great frequency, so I do not recommend viewing it at work or in hearing distance of individuals who are offended by profanity, nor in particular those who are inclined to believe that government officials have everyone’s best interests at heart.
I think that was suggested to me but hadn’t watched it before now. I could subscribe to his newsletter.
I might have to jump on the malthusian bandwagon.
We’re all the Bubble Boy now.
Why not just a centralized supplied air system, like in clean rooms?
Oh, thats already been done.
It recently came to my attention that my driver’s license is about to expire. I went to the DL office today, and it’s shut down, and nobody seems to know when it might reopen. Some bullshit about computer systems.
It might be nice if our governor spent less time destroying the economy and more time focused on doing the job he was hired to do.
I crack myself up/
I just renewed mine online – because I’m not “making an appointment” to deal with those jerkoffs – which means I won’t be able to board an airplane or enter a federal building after some date next year because – surprise, surprise – you can only get the super-special ID in person.
I have a passport card: it’s already super-special.
I’m going to insist each time I am asked for that they say it in the original German.
I lost my license along with my wallet sometime last year (or the year before?) and I’ve been using my passport card from a trip to Mexico eight years ago to make booze purchases.
Oh yeah, I can’t visit Canada or Mexico either. That requires an extra-super-special license (or a passport my last one of which is long expired).
I got one of those so I don’t have to worry about getting my passport to cross over to the Duty Free.
Same here. You can only get in to renew a driver’s license with an appointment, and they’re not taking appointments.
“Arizona certifies presidential election results despite Giuliani telling lawmakers that votes were manipulated in a conspiracy involving Cuba, Venezuela, and ‘crooked’ Democrats”
IANAL, but if they bumped elbows it’s official.
I find the various conspiracy theories to be much more believable than the idea that the election was above board.
Pretty sure that he was not under oath for that. I also like how they talked about MI vote counting and not AZ.
Now go do that voodoo that you do so well!

Nobody’s Gonna Miss You
“Cartoonish internet supervillain Ajit Pai, the Donald Trump-appointed Republican chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, announced Monday that he is leaving the agency on Jan. 20 before the incoming Biden administration shows him the door. Pai’s departure marks the end of an era at the FCC overshadowed by scandals, screw-overs, and screw-ups.”
While I’m no supporter of the bureaucracy, I’m still waiting for a convincing argument that the elimination of “net neutrality” was bad.
Which means we will get Net Neutrality and drive us into slow speeds, metered internet plans, and overall terribleness.
What incentive do ISPs have to build out infrastructure when the government is going to take it from them. The ultimate goal of net neutrality supporters is full government control of the internet.
Bunch of fucking idiots.
As long as Twitter and Facebook can still ban badthinkers and Google can curate information to keep us safe from heresy, I’m fine with net neutrality.
“He didn’t give us what we wanted” and “screw-ups” aren’t synonymous.
The new line of attack on “alternatives” to Twitter et. al is closely akin in narrative to their attacks on AM Radio and the (Un)Fairness Doctrine. I wouldn’t be surprised to see lawsuits attacking Paler et al by Twitter et al
I had forgotten about this piece of shit. I was more focused on the imminent destruction of the economy at-large.
How can you forget the repeal of net neutrality, along with all the deaths involved…
Nearly as many died as of lack of Obamacare mandates.
I remember telling some friends decrying the end of Net Neutrality in 2017 “Oh dear we are going to go back to the way the internet was in 2015!”. They didn’t appreciate it.
Puppies don’t like getting noses rubbed in their messes on the floor either, but they have to learn.
As I said in another forum today, I thought we were all killed by the repeal of the Obama-era regulations on Net Neutrality.
As with most things from the left, if they characterize him as a supervillain, he’s the exact opposite.
Pai notoriously objected to more government intrusion into the internet.
Tech writers are uniformly stupid about the economics of the communications systems.
Nuh uh! Google and Facebook and Youtube, and Twitter told us that the big mean ISP’s are the real evil ones! Why wouldn’t we listen to what those huge corporations want with regards to the internet? They give us things we like!
Cartoonish internet supervillain Ajit Pai
If you write this with a straight face, it says a lot more about you than him.
Very little discussion about NN has anything to do with the technical merits (or lack thereof). It is almost entirely a proxy fight between the not-quite-leftist-enough ISPs and the woke-as-can-be content and delivery platforms. It’s also classist, perhaps above all else; ISPs employ more network engineers and technicians, while the platforms employ more software engineers and people with even fancier titles.
I would almost agree, but then 2020 hit, and i realized how cartoonish the Governors can be. Waging war on Thanksgiving is literally what a cartoon villain would do.
Back during the early days of Net Neutrality arguments, I opined that it would be a bad idea for the government to have control over bandwidth allocation.
Some people, no one here, but some people responded that I was being paranoid and conspiratorial.
Would anyone care to field that particular question now?
I am sure they see a greater need for it to push out those icky free speech locales of the internet.
It would be funny only in a “You today, Me Tomorrow” kind of way, if rather than the 230 bulshit that the right prattles on about, they just advocated imposing a “New Net Neutrality” which regulated content providers and banned banning based on political viewpoint, saying “content providers are really public utilities, like TV stations”.
Yeah, I don’t like the privileged immunity from defamation given to de facto publishers that qualify as platforms, but damned if I can think of a cure that isn’t worse than the disease.
Even if Government gave it up they would give it up to a blue ribbon panel of NGOs and tech companies. The results would be the same.
I vainly attempt to explain the flaw in letting govt be the single provider/payer of healthcare. After all, that govt will be run some of the time by the party you don’t support – you still want the govt to have that level of control then?
The utterly, impossibly dumb belief that that will never happen keeps that from seeping into their conscious mind.
It’s not your fault. I think all of us libertarians thought this would be a valid line of argument that would hit people emotionaly. But then i saw the Trump Presidency and corona-virus, where they screamed that the president wouldn’t put the whole country on house arrest, AND screamed because he was threatening to stop governors from doing so.
Well when you have been hammered from day one of preschool through senior year of high school that ‘our guys’ are benevolent and kind and if only we had the control to do so, your life would in Utopia – I can see why you get that response.
“it would be a bad idea for the government to have control over
Fixed, no more questions to answer.
Not even that. When Pai reversed the course of the FCC, it hadn’t even been implemented yet. Which made all the whining that the internet would die that next day all the more absurd.
This. We never even got to experience utopia yet.
That’s it? Even taking all those at face value, that’s pretty weak tea in the swamp. Approving a merger that didn’t go through is done pretty routinely at the FTC. Touting bogus numbers is pretty much SOP. Lying to Congress is a badge of honor in some precincts.
Didn’t Lois Lerner lie through her teeth?
potentially lying to Congress
“Potentially”? Did he lie or not? Schrödinger’s Chairman.
Remember when people put up fliers threatening Pai’s kids over Net Neutrality? Good times. I’m sure that was OK because he’s a “supervillain”.
Average internet speeds in the US have increased 100% in the last 3 years. Prices have not.
They need to fix that then!
And GOVERNMENT can do it!
I can’t wait for Municipal Internet For All! The complete lack of innovation from that point on will be wondrous.
No one needs more than one internet speed. /your new economy czar, comrade Bernie
Oh, you want that right-wing website, National Review? No of course we wouldn’t block it. That would be terribly wrong. You can access it — at 2400 bits per second.
Email received: “In compliance with Health Department Regulations, beginning tonight 11/30/2020, all players must wear a face mask while participating in Sports at . All Coaches and players must also wear them while in the box during games.”
I’m so pissed right now, no way my kids are doing that which means I have 11 games down the drain. I play too, and am conflicted on what the fuck to do.
I couldn’t imaging if I was a teen again, playing at the level I did in hockey, wearing a mask. There were times I came off the ice breathing so hard that I would have inhaled whatever I had over my face. There is absolutely no real science behind that decision and its all CYA down the line at this point.
I just bitched to the health department, and they are saying it is from the governors office.
That would be the fat fuck Larry Hogan.
The “no constitutional right to not wear a mask guy”? Fuck him.
Found out they’ll be required for outdoor recreation too. I’m losing my mind.
I helped with that Bluecoat Gin total.
The ultimate goal of net neutrality supporters is full government control of the internet.
As long as Parler and their ilk exist, the internet is broken, and must be fixed.

Can you say “non sequitur”?
As Covid-19 continues to spread, millions of Americans are losing their jobs, thousands of restaurants have closed for good and one in three small businesses surveyed by the nonprofit Small Business Majority said they won’t survive beyond the next three months without additional funding. Yet the nation’s most dominant corporations seem to be weathering the pandemic just fine.
In October, Facebook announced its revenue increased by 22% compared to last year, despite a major advertiser boycott over hate speech, and Amazon reported its profits increased by 197%. Google’s YouTube, notwithstanding controversy over misinformation on the platform, saw a 32% increase in advertising revenue.
It’s Facebook’s fault those restaurants are going broke!
Well, since Amazon only became profitable a few years ago and it’s been almost a full year of offline businesses being shut down in various parts of the country…
The way to “build back better” is to create a resilient economy with distributed resources and prosperity, dynamic entrepreneurship and thriving small businesses. But instead we’re currently on track to emerge from this crisis with an even more monopolized economy.
The first step to recovering from Covid-19 is to build a stronger health care sector. We pay more for health care in America than citizens of any other country, but when Covid-19 hit, we didn’t have enough ventilators, hospital beds, masks, gowns, swabs or reagents. How could that be?
invariably list off socialist political objectives without any argument for relating to how that “builds back better”.
How could that be?
WE DIDN’T SPEND ENOUGH!!!!
First thing we need to do is print money to burn it on stuff we won’t use.
Like B-2 Bombers?
I wonder what could be causing increased monopolization? It is almost as though some factor has been driving small players out of business and funneling massive bailouts to large players. What factor could do such a thing?
I thought for sure (and still do) that if our state has another
lockdownpause that places like Pet Smart and PetCo will lobby that they are the only essential place to be open for dog grooming, forcing my wife into the grey/black market.
Hey, at least we can get rid of those evil lobbyists now. Who needs lobbyists when we can just put everyone out of business except our big donors with the latest most scary boogeyman?
when Covid-19 hit, we didn’t have enough ventilators, hospital beds, masks, gowns, swabs or reagents.
A flat out lie, right down the line. We had plenty of all of that, occasional spot shortages of specific types of masks notwithstanding. The only reagent there was a shortage of was the brand new one for the brand new ‘Vid test. Which, shockingly, we couldn’t go from zero to hundreds of millions in a day.
a resilient economy with distributed resources and prosperity, dynamic entrepreneurship and thriving small businesses
Yet the lockdowns they demand more of are wrecking exactly that.
They mean after the pandemic is over. To get to that point, you have to shut up and do as you’re told, peon!
How many of those hastily manufactured 100,000 ventilators are still sitting in government warehouses with the Ark?

She’s shaking her not-so-little tush on the cantwalk?

No, that’s the catwaddle.
Nope. Perky cleavage and toned curves.
It’s amazing what 30 lbs of silicone in the saddle-bags will do.
Sure, but it’s worth it to have an ass just like a mule’s.
Ever since the 1980s, politicians, antitrust law enforcers and judges have bought into the myth that bigger is better. Our government let big corporations take over medicine and kick smaller companies out of the competition through mergers and monopolistic behavior, making our health care markets highly concentrated.
Bring back Marcus Welby, MD!
Bigger is not better, that’s why we need the Biggest Government ever to take control over the Industry.
Our government let big corporations take over medicine and kick smaller companies out of the competition through mergers and monopolistic behavior, making our health care markets highly concentrated.
To be fair, this is part of the strategy: having fewer players in the game makes it easier for the government to control them on the way to a government monopsony.
“Let” or “explicitly encouraged through onerous legislation”?
Whoa, whoa, whoa- we elected WHO?
Small business confidence has fallen to an all-time low after the election of former Vice President Joseph Biden, according to the Q4 CNBC|SurveyMonkey Small Business Survey.
Since CNBC began conducting the survey in 2017, the confidence index reached as high as 62, and had never dipped below the mark of 50 until 2020. While another surge in coronavirus cases continues to hit Main Streets across the nation, and a lack of progress on stimulus talks in Washington, D.C. exacerbates the issues faced by small business owners, key questions in the confidence index relate to the Main Street outlook on taxes and regulation, and the responses from small business owners are skewed heavily by their political leanings — the small business demographic overall has a conservative skew. According to SurveyMonkey, approximately 60% of small business owners identify as Republicans.
Fifty-three percent of small business owners said they expect tax policy to have a negative impact on their business in the next 12 months, while 49% said government regulation will have a negative impact. By party affiliation, the divide is stark. Among Republicans, 75% said tax policy will be a negative and 72% said regulations will be a negative. Those numbers drop to 15% (taxes) and 11% (regulations) among Democrats. These are the highest percentages recorded for the “negative impact” response in the four years of the survey.
Who cares what a bunch of self-interested profiteers think? We’re making the world a better place.
Those small buisness owners are making anywhere from 60k-1 million a year. They are the problem with this country, and you don’t have to take my word for it! Jeff Bezos and other Billionares agree that we need to tax those corporations more!
To be fair, the small business owners didn’t elect Biden.

AvGeeks may enjoy some ATC out of KBOS this evening. Gusts to 46 w/cross
Waiting for a JA heavy to make its 2nd attempt w/47 gusts
Those intercontinentals have to be about the only planes that are still within their limits with a nearly 50 cross. If I recall correctly, 737s limit out just above 25.
It’s the crosswinds that get ’em. They’re on the 22 runways, with winds at 170, so a bit of a cross.
Oh, “46 with cross”. I read that as a 46 cross and was a bit surprised that even the big planes could land it that.
When we get our high winds here in Vegas about twice a year it is always fun to watch. That is when you want a Navy pilot commanding the bird.
I swear the pilot on my shuttle flights to San Angelo was a former carrier pilot. He would plant that plane on the runway. I don’t know why we didn’t have blown tires and collapsed landing gear. I took probably a dozen flights with what had to be the same pilot; the landings were . . . unique.
It is such a unique experience when you have a pilot that seamlessly executes the flare and you don’t even realize you landed until you hear the concrete underneath the landing gear.
I have had a couple of bounce landings but that was due to high winds and the pilot putting the bird on the ground, so to speak, but was too gentle with it as if it was the calmest of weather.
Had a flight like that I though the landing gear was going to come through the wing.
The crew was doing the seeing the passengers off the plane thing and I told the pilot “Spent the weeked doing Navy reserve flying, eh?” He just glared at me.
Azores says hello.
It’s surely windy outside.
I guess I came to the wrong place to avoid Politics, jeez

More on the Staten Island bar
The city sent taxi sheriffs Sunday to crack down on a Staten Island bar owner who crowed about defying COVID-19 restrictions — only for the tough-talking proprietor to lock the door and say he was closed.
The owners of Mac’s Public House — which is in a virus danger zone and should be closed to indoor service — have told The Post they are refusing to heed state and city restrictions, which went into effect Wednesday.
So far, the bar has been slapped with thousands of dollars in fines and a shut-down order from the state Department of Health, not to mention having its state liquor license yanked.
But the bar still opened as usual Saturday. Around 8 p.m. that day, state Health Department workers came by and “ taped some cease-and-desist notices to the window,’’ co-owner Keith McAlarney told The Post on Sunday — but that still didn’t keep the bar from staying open.
It’s reading things like this that make me fell like these journalists need to have a run in with the censorious polices state that they clamor for.
But of course that won’t happen, because in such a world they would be the propagandists.
[imagines Kenny Loggins singing “virus in the danger zone”…]
LOL!!!! great minds!
/never thought I would say that about you Ted S.
Later in the article:
Around 3:20 p.m., a pair of Taxi & Limousine Commission peace officers with radios approached the door of the watering hole and flashed their badges to McAlarney.
I have no idea why the city sent the taxi cops.
I have no idea why there is such a thing as “taxi cops” and I fucking live here. But it does give some flavor of the drunken spending spree DeBlasio has been on for the last six years or so.

You’re going to be fine. I faced a similar situation once and it was with an actual bank mortgage, not a land contract. I missed maybe 4 payments when I was out of work. When I got a job, I tried to pay it, but whey wouldn’t take it because they had already started foreclosure. I tried to work with them and it took a year and then they refinanced the entire thing and I wound up with lower payments and better interest rate.
You’re in good shape, don’t let it stress you too much. Just focus on getting some work and staying positive. Best to you, bro.

“So everybody has to wear a mask all the time because a small fraction of a percent of the population may be infectious for a couple days before they get sick? I thought most transmission occurred while people are at home, anyway. So we should require everyone to wear a mask in public even though the small fraction of a percent who may be infectious won’t infect anybody in public?”

Yesterday my brother and I looked around 90 acres of the most beautiful woods you can imagine. Pine, red oak, white oak and beech. The owner doesn’t think it is worth much and is willing to trade 38 acres we own between his house and a highway (ours essentially being his front yard. His driveway, utilities etc going across our property) for his 90 acres in the middle of nowhere, all being creek bottom. Some of you shotgunners should visit. The creek is chock full o’ ducks.
I don’t think I can write up the papers fast enough.
Sure sounds like an opportunity.
I’ll say. Everyone wins.
A wonderful example of the kind of transaction where everyone mysteriously comes out ahead. Its almost like people place different values on things. Almost.
The bodybuilder story is why Kazakhs compose songs about slitting Russian throats during the late 1910s/early 1920s.
TBF anyone that has had contact with the Russians writes those songs.
What the Bolshies did to the Turkic Central Asian “-stans” was horrific and sadly undertaught.
Most Americans have never heard of the five dumbfuckistans. My father was in Kazakhstan a couple of years ago for a job and told me most Kazakhs outside of the cities have never heard of the United States.
It’s the dark side of the moon.
Lyrics in English.
I kinda like it.
I know, I know. You guys all think that solar power can’t get any more sanctimonious. But I say BEHOLD the mixing of solar power and native american pipe dreams!
Yep an entire article about how wonderful the Red Lake tribe is for installing solar panels on the roof of their tribal govt center. And how lucky other companies felt to work with them to help install those panels. No mention is ever made about how long it would take those panels to pay for themselves. Of course, solar power will allow the Red Lake tribe to throw off the shackles of the evil colonizers!
Imagine those racist co-op owners who won’t keep pumping the juice to homes that don’t pay their bills!
Unless they bought a truly impressive battery stack, they are in for a surprise if they think they won’t need the utility for any electricity whatsoever.
“Can solar power lead the Red Lake Nation toward energy independence?”
I think they should use their sovereign nation status to build a nuke. Tell the white eye’s to pound sand. If any tribe in Minnesoda would do something like that, it would be the Red Lake tribe. They have always been a closed reservation. I know several people who have fished Red Lake and been told to get their asses off the reservation before the tribal cops decide to lock them up.
“I think they should use their sovereign nation status to build a nuke.”
Well, that is the only way they’ll ever get whitey to leave them alone.
The tribe claims the land by right of conquest and aboriginal title
But colonialism is bad.
I didn’t think there was any other kind of injun land.
by right of conquest
Whoa, whoa, WHOA!!! Listen redskin, that is the white man’s way. You don’t go appropriating our shit and we won’t appropriate yours.
One question. How?
Uffda. You need a wampum upside the head for that pun
You mean a pow for that wow?
White man speak with fork tongue. Panels do not work because sun not shine for many moons!
Even when sun shine, many inches of snow will insulate from light in the sky.
One was concern about the long-term environmental health of Red Lake
Nobody tell them that solar panels have heavy metals that make them toxic waste.
I am curious about how a generator plant that is not on the reservation is bad for the long-term environmental health of the reservation, as well.
If your culture’s music and dance were this sensual and erotic, your country would have a billion people too.
Uffda. Even the “totality of the circs” defense didn’t save this asshole cop from Duluth.
But, but Kindly Unca Joe Biden recommends shooting through doors!
Well this is interesting. It appears that it isn’t only cop guns that decide to shoot people without even asking the cop for permission first. Looks like criminal guns are just as headstrong.
In a bloody year for Minneapolis, one gun could be key to solving 14 shootings
Old and Busted: If it saves just one life
New and Shiny: If we grab just one gun.
So by getting one gun off the streets, we’re able to prevent dozens of crimes from occurring.
I love how they go from “criminal gangs pass guns around like potato chips” to “seizing one gun means criminal gangs won’t have any guns”.
If a criminal gang has 100 guns and commits 1200 crimes, each gun seized obviously prevents 12 crimes. It is simple math and you are clearly just too stupid to understand it. How can they commit that gun’s share of the crimes without that gun?
I see it now.
“Man, I was so gonna bust a cap in that guy’s ass, but the cops took our Glock.”
“Yo, use the Smith.”
“Nah, brah. If I can’t use the Glock, I ain’t gonna shoot nobody. I’m thinking I may get a job, maybe get married, move to the ‘burbs.”
Now you understand!
Look, man, all they need is a gun buyback program. The gangs will be the first to show up with their guns to sell back. You can trust our betters in government, they’re brilliant geniuses.
Pfft. With Democrats in charge, people will realize that they no longer need guns to protect themselves from Bad Orange Man and his roving gangs of white supremacists. They will voluntarily give up their shooting irons. No need for a buy back.
I’m not totally convinced that is what will happen. Maybe after a few months of utopian tranquility and world peace.
“In a bloody year for Minneapolis, one gun could be key to solving 14 shootings”
Maybe if you take it away from a cop.
“…how much violence a single firearm can leave in its wake…”
“…by getting one gun off the streets, we’re able to prevent dozens of crimes from occurring.”
Huh. Grant Parish Louisiana = average of 48 guns per person. The most heavily armed jurisdiction in the world. You can count the shootings here on the fingers of one hand for the last 100 years. I think there have been 4 or 5 and two of those were accidents.
Minneapolis doesn’t have a gun problem, it has a people problem. If you are curious as to why they have that problem just read the two sentences I quoted.
Legacy media breathlessly reports on something that has been common knowledge for over fifty years. Nice work. How about you go back to reprinting government press releases, you fucking tools?
I just reviewed an Amazon purchase,
Yes, you can use a Duraflame log, even 2, just not at once.
It’s strong and stable, I keep mine in my MirthMobile for those cool times with Chicks, it always represents.
“Ooh, How Cute” they say, one little firepit, so much Pussy,
Please tell me that’s what you posted as your review.
I really did, copy pasta Baby!
That Tall Can tho….
Album name or band name ?
/Party on Garth…
Now all you have to do is teach the chickies how to roast marshmallows. Be careful though, that’s more dangerous than slathering on an entire bottle of High Karate.
Axe, I admit it, my Wife loved it, she bought the stuff, so why stop?
Don’t they learn that camping?
Camping with Wendy is how my Daughter got here, Sneaky Woman,,,,,
Russian Women! Dancing with swords!
Yeah, it’s all fun and games until they start twirling with two swords, faster and faster.
(and I have a crush on the chick in the bar)
She’s a good choice.
One should always have plenty of vodka before juggling Cossak shashkas.
Same for voting, driving and shooting.
Ran errands at lunch today. Picked up the .45 from the gunsmith (broken doohickey meant no bang bang) and restocked the liquor cabinet. I almost wish I still smoked, I could have hit the alcohol, tobacco and firearms trifecta.
Tack some explosives on there you could be one helluva date.
Ugh. My father dropped his Delta Elite 10mm on my tile floor Friday and the ambidextrous safety broke like glass. On 1911’s each safety must be hand fitted, they are not interchangeable. Off to the Smith he goes.
I have been carrying a 1911 for forty years and not once have I dropped one. I am starting to worry about the guy.
*I spent the weekend in the woods carrying a Ruger Vaquero in 45LC and a Mini-14. It was a Ruger weekend. My father and brother wanted to shoot my pistol.
“Goddamn, that shoots like a 44 mag.”
I had it loaded with 230 gr hollow points made for 45 acp and jacked up to 1500 fps. They do shoot like 44 mag, especially out of a 7.5″ barrel.
Figures that a hand loader such as yourself would be shooting 45LC. We lowly factory load shooters go for 44mag.
You should take up hand loading, especially now. Limitless cheap center fire ammo.
45LC has a lot of potential from plinking ammo to magnum level hunting loads. So do all of the large cartridges.
Buy your brass in batches of 1000 and get a lifetime’s supply.
Now, if I can just keep my brother and father out of my stash.
Not to discourage anyone from taking up handloading, but have you looked at the availability of primers lately?
My current problem has more to do with availability of cash with an orthodontics bill and tuition payment coming up.
Please let this happen Christmas week
Oh FFS. The Kennedy space center? That illustration is wildly inaccurate. If you draw a circle to represent the earth as large as you can draw it on 8.5″x11″ paper the pencil mark is wider than the earth’s crust plus our atmosphere. I don’t think I will be letting them do the driving.
What are you getting on about? What illustration?
The one at the top of KK’s link
Ah, there is extra content on the page if you request the desktop site. Yeah, that pic doesn’t look quite right.
I guess KSC needs to update its web site https://www.space.com/boeing-orbital-flight-test-2-early-2021-launch
I love Gas! My food comes out just right, my Pie came out perfect, now, a Red Velvet Layer cake, with Cream cheese frosting, oh yeah,
Love the Gas!
That is more due to peristalsis than gas pressure. The gas is more of a side effect.
Odorized Methane, get’s the job done, Energy Density wins, every time,
I don’t notice the difference as much for baking/roasting; it’s all about the range-top to me – no waiting for the element to heat up.
Interesting article from TOS that included this bit from a certain judge that Trump isn’t so fond of lately.
I don’t have a problem with violent felons being denied rights, but tax evasion? Really?
One should get a medal for tax evasion.
Being a decent man I am ashamed of my country’s politics. Creepy Joe Fuckin’ Biden, even if the election was hinkey as hell, got a very significant number of votes running on a “I am going to fuck you to death” platform. What the fuck is wrong with those people?
You know all those ridiculous MSM articles we make fun of here? Yeah, there are a lot of people that take them at face value.
No, he ran on the “Trump is icky-poo” platform.
“Tolochko said he met Margo at a nightclub, where he rescued her from some unwanted attention, adding that they had planned to take the plunge in March before the coronavirus pandemic hit.”
Everybody got to be me and you,
The spousal unit, myself, and the Snugglepup went for a walk in several of our river valley’s many tributary ravines this afternoon, and enjoyed ourselves. Well, until we ran into a great dump of human feces along one of the trails. The dumper was not only desperate, but decided to use his/her Commie Coof mask to, uh, clean up afterwards. We discovered all this while a slightly annoyed lady who was walking her dog tried to keep said dog from “exploring” the dump and the mask more thoroughly.
At least the mask was finally useful for something.
