Nanny Bloomers: We Don't Want the National Guard Keeping Order in New York City Because We Don't Want Those Extra Icky Guns

A few days ago Kathleen Parker, alleged by the media to be conservative-leaning and alleged by me to be an idiot, cooed at the prospect of Michael Bloomberg running for president.

If nothing else, this year has brought us the end of the long-threatened Michael Bloomberg presidential candidacy, and thankfully (hopefully!) the last term of Mayor for Life.


Mayor Bloomberg has snubbed Borough President Markowitz’s impassioned plea to bring the National Guard to Hurricane Sandy-scarred Brooklyn — arguing that approving the Beep’s request would be a waste of federal manpower and turn the borough into a police state.

“We don’t need it,” Mayor Bloomberg said on Wednesday during a press update on the city’s ongoing Hurricane Sandy cleanup. “The NYPD is the only people we want on the street with guns.”

You know what's worse than highly-trained, highly-disciplined men with guns? Looters and criminals of opportunity, and citizens getting panicky about looters and criminals of opportunity.

When night falls in the Rockaways, the hoods come out.

Ever since Sandy strafed the Queens peninsula and tore up the boardwalk, it’s become an often lawless place where cops are even scarcer than electrical power and food. Locals say they are arming themselves with guns, baseball bats, booby traps — even a bow and arrow — to defend against looters.

...

“We booby-trapped our door and keep a baseball bat beside our bed,” said Danielle Harris, 34, rummaging through donated supplies as children rode scooters along half-block chunk of the boardwalk that had marooned into the middle of Beach 91st St.

“We heard gunshots for three nights in a row,” said Harris, who believed they came from the nearby housing projects.

Carly Ruggieri, 27, who lives in water-damaged house on the block, said she barricades her door with a bed frame. “There have been people in power department uniforms knocking on doors and asking if they’re okay, but at midnight.”

And another local surfer said he has knives, a machete and a bow and arrow on the ready. Gunshots and slow-rolling cars have become a common fixture of the night since Hurricane Sandy.

“I would take a looter with a boa [sic]. If I felt threatened I would definitely use it,” said Keone Singlehurst, 42. “Its like the Wild West. A borderline lawless situation.”


I don't mind armed citizens, but panicky armed citizens often produce less-than-optimal outcomes. There might be a little less panic -- and also, a little less crime and looting -- if there were a stronger presence of order in the stricken areas.

Bloomberg is so anti-gun he's afraid of national guardsmen -- citizen-soldiers who have at least a basic-level security clearance -- toting firearms.

City-dwellers may finally be understanding what rural folks say -- when danger is seconds away, it does you little good if the police are 10-15 minutes away.

Next time that the strutting popinjay Mayor Mikey is having a "press availability" in the storm-damaged areas, please do this: show up with a Big Gulp in one hand and a salt shaker in the other, stand as close as you can get, and loudly demand to know if he's going to have you arrested.

Take out a looter with a bow? Sure. Except... now try it with four or five of them, or more, all at the same time in close quarters. Eh, not so much.

I'm still waiting for the Midget Stalin to cough up a billion or two of his own stash to try and help New York out. If he could waste $200 million just trying to get the job one imagines he could blow a billion trying to save the place from the ruin that his performance in the job has brought on. The Midget Stalin only makes a few billion a year, I understand, but he's the one screaming about how he wants to tax the living shit out his "1%ers". He even brought his Occupooper shock troops to New York City and let them do whatever the hell they wanted in order to harass the normal citizens about this.

Well said, Ace. I feel sick for those still waiting for Obama and CUOMO (HAVE ANY OF YOU SEEN CUOMO DEALING WITH THIS CF IN HIS STATE?) to make sure, electricity, water, and food stores are easily available for Staten Islanders, etc..

Are they protecting Cuomo as the next Presidential candidate? I could get water in a full sized truck in 8 hours to Staten Island. WTF is going on?

I was wrong for how I acted yesterday. As my g/f says, I tend to be too much of a pessimist. I know, not a great way to go through life. In this case, Ive largely held strong to the idea that Romney could win, but did let negative things I hear/read in media affect me a bit much. I guess part of it is I didnt want to be too hopeful and then have a big let down on Tuesday.
But its not good to be that way. This is too important and what purpose does it serve to be negative. Certainly it isnt helpful to those who post here either. So I do offer my apologies for yesterday. All in all, I am indeed much more hopeful and feel good about the results Tuesday. There are millions and millions that believe Obama must be beaten, and plenty that fell for his bs in 2008 that have woken up.

Don't blame this on Pixy.

Some idiot didn't understand timezones, and set the server to local time instead of zulu time. Pixy, being from Oz, got the word about the daylight time change late, but fixed the local time offset manually.

Then some server farm retard advanced the server's time.

Wheee ....

( proper procedure is to set server time to zulu time ... and to have your program check what the local offset is supposed to be before putting a timestamp on anything. That way everything just works. )

139 Bloomberg is a jerkoff. I will say one thing. As I was riding out the storm all I had was a radio for 3 days. I was listening to local jersey stations and the DJ on one of them was basically saying yeah ok thugs, try looting, they'll shoot you in the head so you don't live to testify. I never heard a peep from christie even remotely suggesting not to take matters in your own hands. There was this whole aura of "Well if you loot and you get shot, oh well". Christie isn't exactly stellar on gun issues, so it was pretty interesting that the whole concept of not taking matters into your own hands never even came up. There really isn't much looting going on in jersey, there was a little at first, but nothing crazy. Amazing how far a little veiled threat of letting an armed populace deal with you as they see fit goes when controlling scumbags is the objective.

The early vote is overrepresented in the polling and many are finding ESPECIALLY SurveyUSA, that over 95% of their polled voters are likely voters. Only possible in a state like Washington where we get 90% turnout rates, but nationally it is 60-80%.

169 I am tying to think of a movie that ends like "The Walking Dead" but shows the first outbreak. There has been outbreaks and mass illness that leads to death but I can't think of one where the dead then wake up and start attacking the living. If they had to quarantine the whole city of NY and know that even the living would die in short order as they had to blow up the bridges to the Island as they fear the walkers getting out. Could a leader do that and know that millions of voters/people will die but it could save the rest but in reality it is already to late when they said yes.

For a break out on the scale of The Walking Dead even before Rick got shot and in the coma there was already pockets of infections that are so small it starts with a few cases. Until the dead already buried or in the morgue wake up.

But look, when you have a race this tight, things like a hurricane,
this can move the needle when you’re talking about a race so close. And I
think it was an important moment for the President because in the last
three or four weeks of the campaign, I don’t think he had been going out
of his way to appeal to Independents whatsoever. This was a campaign
built to turn out the base of the Party, and here was a moment handed to
him seemingly from above where he could look like that strong,
independent, steady in a storm, very appealing to the middle of the road
voters, and I might add to unmarried women voters who are going to be
very key in this election.


Where, or where do they find these people?

184 Just wait til the post-election riots erupt.

I loved Walter Russell Meade's take on the nanny state. Basically he points out that New Yorkers demanded and got big government and the big government gave them no smoking in bars, banned transfats, and reduced cup sizes for drinks... and was utterly unprepared for a storm.

Here in New York we have a very busy government. It’s worried about the kinds of fats we eat and the size of the soft drinks we buy, and there is no shortage of regulations affecting businesses, street vendors, and individuals. But in all this exciting fine tuning, nobody seems to have bothered to think about the much greater task of keeping floodwaters out of the subway system. Admittedly, getting public support and finding the money for flood protection would be hard, but it is exactly that kind of hard job that governments are supposed to do. Leadership is getting the important things done, not looking busy on secondary tasks while the real needs of the city go quietly unmet.

I have it on very good authority (my Mama in Mississippi) who has her own Mississippi Power dude she has befriended through others, because that is how we roll, state that Mississippi crews were in place days before the storm and are still in Maryland somewhere.
This is how hurricanes are run, y'all. Our neighbors and others states rush to the state line, or just out of harms way, and rush in. We, in turn, welcome them, chat them up like nobody's bidness, befriend them, know where they are from, and give them iced co-cola's and pound cake. Heck, I did not even need power and I stop and talk to them.
I hope the natives of Staten Island or Rockaway know this. I would freak out.

I really think power would be on in NJ or Staten Island if they would get the National Guard to tell the union thugs to stand down or do their job. I hope the people know this is their unions at work as they are cold and hungry.

I got a Clint Eastwood DVD after the RNC and his Jimmy Stewart empty chair act. It was my way of telling him thanks. That may be all I watch in the next two days until this thing is over. Well, I will listen to Rush and check here.
I am going to stay positive. So, whiners beware. I am in a bad mood right now when not positive for Romney/Ryan. Get off my lawn.

234 Cuomo was involved in the disaster of free gas. His office sent out a notice that free gas would be available for first responders and the populace. Then huge lines formed of angry people. And it turned out the DoD was supposed to only give gas to first responder vehicles. So Cuomo's office issued another notice blaming the military for the snafu.

Because of such confusion, some military units actually did dispense gas to civilians. I would promote those guys for thinking on their feet and preventing a riot around tankers full of gasoline.

First of all, bloomers us a ridiculous and dangerous COAMFy tyrant.
He,s all up in his mansion with his billions so if he doesn't need
National Guardsmen in his hood, why should you?



Next, I posted this on the last thread which I believe may have
started decomposing by now. So I'll repost it here for posterity and
because I am an attention seeker. But mostly for posterity. I think.



Mitt Romney had better win in Tuesday. I just about froze to death
waiting to hear him speak in PA. It was awesome, though. They had a
really great video before he arrived. Sitting in traffic trying to exit
the parking lot. It's gonna be a while.

killer for the Repubs, I thought it worth bringing it up to emphasize what a

I was imitating a known democrat (before he "changed parties") who is a gun hating gun grabbing nanny stater who DOES think like that.

Anyway, Just thought you'd like to know two things.

1. The Dem GOTV calls are desperate, hectoring, pleading scripts basically trying to scare and/or guilt Dem base supporters into getting off their lazy asses. The R GOTV calls are very basic, "please vote for Romney, thanks!" and "Don't forget to vote for Romney, thanks!" type scripts.

2. The reaction from the registered Dems called and the registered Rs called is night and day. Cursing, hang-ups, and indifference from Dems. Upbeat, happy, and encouraging from the Rs. Plenty of folks telling our interviewers to "go get 'em" and "thanks for the work you do" from the Rs called.

This isn't going to be close on Tuesday.

They were put into an extremely volatile situation and were backed into a corner. The Leftists lit the fuse. There should have been a bigger State Police/County Police presence to arrest and detain, instead of intimidate. If I have a clip (M-1 Garand) of 8 rounds locked and loaded and I hear a gun shot from the area of incidence, I probably open fire, also. The agitators knew the Guard did not want to open fire. The deaths are on their hands, but that was not in keeping with the Narrative®.

I personally like men with guns. I thanked them as well. If you are in uniform you are going to get the full treatment from me. I tend to embarrass those around me who would rather that I not thank people so much. #HoneyBadger

After 9/11 and the war in Iraq I would horrify husband/sons by thanking troops. I went up to a Marine in full dress blues in an Atlanta airport restaurant and gave him money "for a beer." I don't think this was proper at all, but I meant well. I am sure he thought I was insane at the time. I worry, now, that he was escorting a Marine home. Being the daughter of a WWII Marine, I just saw "MARINE" and thus made a fool of myself. Oh, well. A lot of them have learned not to make eye contact with me, but I thank them anyway.

On Delta and Southwest, can't say for other airlines as I don't fly them, they ask for a round of applause for our troops on planes. Sometimes they ask for passengers to let them get off plane first so they can make connections. I will never forget one soldier, who was waiting like a gentleman for me to pass in the aisle as we left and I told him thank you for his service. He looked me square in the eye and said, "No, ma'am, I thank YOU." I then had to rush by in blurry tears.

For heaven's sake, let's get these men a real Commander in Chief. Pray.

386 "Note to self: Buy small generator, and quality gas cans."

This warning can't be voiced too often.

The ethanol shit that the feds are forcing refineries to blend into gasoline in order to allegedly be "green" make that gasoline SERIOUSLY BAD NEWS for carbureted small engines. Such as the ones on small generators.

The gasoline with ethanol will go bad when stored much faster than gas used to. And the ethanol is hygroscopic. It'll pull moisture out of the air. Which means that the gasoline the ethanol is in will then rust your small engine's fuel system from the inside, thanks to that water.

Putting fuel stabilizer in the gas will help a little. But really, you should not count on storing modern gasoline for more than about a month or two. And you should always, always, always drain your generator's tank to the last drop and allow the carb to run bone dry before storing the genny.

That explanation has been shown as false SO many times. Why would it be that independents are ex Republicans when in 2010 the electorate was even or R+1? Shouldn't THAT have been the election where the independent vote would have gone UP?? That was the HEIGHT of the Tea Party influence and if that was true, it would have been shown in the polling. It never happened.

Didn't happen then and its not happening now. There is systemic rot in the polling organizations now and they cannot be trusted.

I agree. I don't believe it's because they want to suck, it's just that the extremely low response rate, plus so many people no longer having lan lines, and so many people willing to lie (like those who say they are likely voters or have already voted) makes polling really, really shoddy.

Posted by: Rich at November 04, 2012 08:28 PM (arczc)

The Republicans simply did not turn out in 2008. Some of those that did, came out as Independents, but NOT to the extent that would matter. Having less Republican turnout added to the percentage of Dems and Indies in 2008. If you look at Ohio, you can see in 2008 McCain got nearly 200,000 votes LESS than George Bush did in 2004. Obama actually got LESS than John Kerry did in 2004.

The DRI in 2008 was screwed up BECAUSE Republicans did not show up.

Posted by: Nicholas Kronos at November 04, 2012 08:38 PM (WbGW2)

449 I'm in Philly, but just gonna post here instead of the Romney/PA thread. It's too long and people are saying there's something wrong w/ it...make your own penis jokes about that. Making penis jokes has never been my job since I've come to this country.

First, I'll give you some anecdotal stuff on PA, and especially the Philly area, then some general analysis.

ANECDOTAL PHILLY/PA ANALYSIS:

First off, people don't give much of a fuck about Christie in Philly. If he had come here and campaigned w/ Romney, it would have been nice but not a game-changer...the reverse (the optics w/ Obama) is also true. Helped O, but not nearly decisive.

Didn't go to the rally today because it said it had "airport-level security" and I was hoping it would have been in Philly...but having heard it went well does mean something.

Suburban Rs outside of Philly are the unicorn sort that we often hear of, but never show up..."fiscal conservative, social liberal, independent". But this is the one election where the legend of how a Republican should win may be true. Because I think this R&R ticket will work w/ them.

Again this is anecdotal, but I am not the sort to say we'll win if I think we'll lose...I just won't say anything...I really think we've got a better than 50/50 shot in PA.

It's not so much that you have to actually be a milquetoast politician here...just come off like one (a bit). For example, Casey jr is a liberal, but comes across like a moderate...so does Toomey.

And so do R&R. There's just sort of an instinct you get when you know an area well, that's hard to describe to outsiders. But I'm telling you, as a Philly resident, R&R is a ticket that can truly work here.

As to Sandy's effect? In the anecdotal sense? It's hard to say. I definitely don't think it will send people in this area rushing back to O saying "we need government". But could help him in the sense that he got on a more positive message and seemed more bi-partisan.

On the other hand, if your shore house is underwater, and FEMA isn't great are you more likely to vote or not? And for who? Remember, lower turnout screws Ds in this area.

I can probably see the people angry at O wanting to make the effort to vote, more than the ones who're just OK w/ him (but not thrilled) wanting to.

Something also very important...In Pennsylvania WE HAVE NO EARLY VOTING.

90%+ will vote on Election Day. I've gotta think that helps us. In that sense Sandy's positive optics for O, may result in a wash w/ the fact that Sandy has made it more difficult for Ds to vote...and we know how they like to early vote.

NATIONAL PHILLY/PA ANALYSIS:

From what I've read PA has been trending Red for close to 20 years. Very close elections in 2000 and 2004. Only Philly's incredible turnout has stopped that (Bush lost by about 2% in 2004).

McCain was tied until Wall St collapsed. Now you've got a perfect Republican PA ticket w/ R&R (I can assure you these two guys will play here) and a failed semi-radical liberal in O (does not play in PA).

Even more, the Senate race is close...I think those numbers are less prejudiced than the Presidential ones...because R&R have even an even better chance of winning than Smith does (PA people are boring enough to like one R one D in the Senate...which doesn't mean I don't think Smith can win, only that I think R&R can win even more).

Basically it's this: If Philly doesn't give incredible turnout to O, then the odds are a R&R win. It doesn't take a miracle. Just Math (to paraphrase one of O's more patronizing insults to Republicans).

This was a state Ds only won by 2% in 2004, w/ a stronger D candidate in PA terms (Kerry's calm manner, anti-war stance) and a weaker R in PA terms candidate (Texas drawl, seemed like a war monger).

The Ds never thought it would come down to PA, so they never poisoned the airwaves. Don't watch a ton of TV, but I can tell you (I'm in Philly) I've seen few ads for O.

So we're gonna see if they can mach the incredible D turnout of 2004 and 08 in Philly. Or they lose.

But don't let anyone tell you this is a "miracle reach". He's got as good a chance here (in PA) as he does in OH or WI. Or MI or IA or NH. Or MN.

And possibly better than all of those.

PS - I hear the Redskins and Giants lost (defeated by the Steelers), and this helps the Republican candidate, according to magical-thinking. That's great. But it's also great because the Giants and Redskins suck. LOL

There was an elderly gentleman outside the bank that had a hat that said "Retired Marine." I walked up to him and said, "Last I heard, Marines don't retire, they merely go inactive." He laughed forever. Talked to him for a bit. The ones that get me are the Vietnam guys. They're blown away that anybody would thank them. It doesn't process. And that's just a fuckin shame.

I make it a point to speak and say thanks. My wife does the same. We're teaching our girls as well. If you ask my eldest "What do we say to soldiers?" she says "We say thank you." "Why do we say thank you?" "Cause they protect us."

After the 1999 OKC monster tornado, the city already had a clean-up plan in action and power people on station by the time FEMA even showed up. Most of the work was done by private companies and the area actually started the phase of rebuilding within two weeks of the storm.

Plus, everyone in OKC chipped in, offering any help where help was needed.

OK is a "Right to Work" state. It made all the difference in the world.

Yes, and the polls are saying that Ohio is the same spread between Romney and Obama that will be present in Oregon or Michigan.

May 3rd. I"ll never forget it. We were at that gas station on 44, in Stroud, the one by the McDonalds?

The cinderblock walls were breathing in and out, and we didn't even get the F5/6. It flipped two 18 wheelers right over the building, into the McDonalds parking lot. I kept hearing this huge thumping going on, and couldn't imagine what it was...turns out ot was the vending machines. Kept feeling water hit my face and was grossed out cuz I thought it was toilet water (we were in the ladies room) turns out the roof was gone above us.

474 There was sea water blowing and raining on everything.

The residential parts of NYC are very old too. Even if you're good from the xformer through the laterals and down into a meter, there's a good chance the service conductors into the basement are ancient cracked cloth/rubber insulated shit going into an equally ancient panel.

A dunking in salt water ain't gonna improve the tripping ability of those old Zinsco and Federal Pacific breakers.

A lot of the service entrance cable and panel lugs are aluminum too, even if the busses are copper. Al and salt water will react badly. There's a huge amount of premise checking and replacement that needs to be done before a joint could be safely turned back on. At a minimum, any dunked breakers need to be tossed.

Because it disolves their argument, as to 'why they didn't send anyone' to rescue our people in Benghazi.

I saw a couple posts upthread about our men and women who serve. I go
out of my way to say thank you. Make time for the old timers.



There was an elderly gentleman outside the bank that had a hat that
said "Retired Marine." I walked up to him and said, "Last I heard,
Marines don't retire, they merely go inactive." He laughed forever.
Talked to him for a bit. The ones that get me are the Vietnam guys.
They're blown away that anybody would thank them. It doesn't process.
And that's just a fuckin shame.



I make it a point to speak and say thanks. My wife does the same.
We're teaching our girls as well. If you ask my eldest "What do we say
to soldiers?" she says "We say thank you." "Why do we say thank you?"
"Cause they protect us."

"Note to self: Buy small generator, and quality gas cans."

This warning can't be voiced too often.

The ethanol shit that the feds are forcing refineries to blend into gasoline in order to allegedly be "green" make that gasoline SERIOUSLY BAD NEWS for carbureted small engines. Such as the ones on small generators.

The gasoline with ethanol will go bad when stored much faster than gas used to. And the ethanol is hygroscopic. It'll pull moisture out of the air. Which means that the gasoline the ethanol is in will then rust your small engine's fuel system from the inside, thanks to that water.

Putting fuel stabilizer in the gas will help a little. But really, you should not count on storing modern gasoline for more than about a month or two. And you should always, always, always drain your generator's tank to the last drop and allow the carb to run bone dry before storing the genny.Posted by: torquewrench at November 04, 2012 08:26 PM (ymG7s)



They do have gas without ethanol in some gas stations. Shell stations in MN usually have one pump. It is expensive, but it may be worth it.
The problem is gas stations only have so many tanks, and if they carry that E85 crap, they will not carry the ethanol free gas.

Tammy, I didn't know you were in OK during the May '99 tornado.
That was one for the books.
Wind guages broke at...360 mph.

We'd been watching it come together from across town.
And watching it on local channels, with the storm trackers filming those three smaller funnels that came together...to form the mile-wide monster F5.

The Weather Channel was showing "Fair w/25% Chance of Showers", on the local forecast.

We only had a few trees uprooted.
The poor folks in the path of that thing were devastated.

We have a brand around the Mid Atlantic called "Pure" and they sell ethanol free gas. It's about 10% more expensive than the ethanol gas, but I get about 15% better gas mileage, so it is actually cheaper than the ethanol gas. I also had to get a new carb for my generator this summer when the derecheo hit Virginia and my generator wouldn't start because of the damn ethanol fuel screwing it up. Now, I just use that sweet ethanol free gas in my generator.

For what it's worth, quality modern compound bows, in the 50-70lb max draw range (legal for deer hunting), are under 40 inches axle-to-axle, newer ones even as short at 32 inches, as the newer designs have the limbs pointing almost straight back.

As an urban weapon, they are quite practical and lethal up to 200 yards, assuming the archer (you) have developed the muscles to draw the bow and the skill to hit a 15" x 20" target at that range. 100 yards is a much likelier maximum range, with 50 yards being a practical maximum range. Plan on 20-50 yards.

The rate of fire is much higher than a crossbow, provided the archer (you) have trained enough. There was a video here on Ace, about a year ago, showing a Russian girl shooting an arrow every 3-5 seconds at what looked to be a 25-meter target. Her bow was probably 20lb or so, but a properly sharpened broadhead would make an ugly wound all the way through anyone less than 12" thick. The arrow would likely still stay IN the target, but that's a bonus.

The shock value, to the target and to the co-targets, should not be underestimated: almost no sound, then blood everywhere and lots of pain and screaming ... and both will last for at least a few minutes. Of course, the co-targets will desire greatly to see what the archer's (your) insides look like, and study them in detail, so the archer (you) must be prepared ...

Thank you. I know I will see him again. He never spoke of anything except the funny stuff re: the war (his trip overseas he was on a merchant marine ship with 1000 others and out-door toilets on deck. For some reason he got asked to eat with the officers and did not share the bad meat with the others. He would crack up every time at the memory of watching all of those toilets busy. He was very funny, or as my husband would say, "a character."). One of my brothers was very interested in his service and got him talking about five years or so before his death, otherwise we would have not known a lot. I recorded him for the National Library of Congress History lesson, but it is just for family. He is very humble in it, and, like many WWII veterans, acted like it was no big deal.
Daddy was a very good man. Like many, too, he returned to forget about it and make a good life for himself. He did, owned his own business and would have bought a billboard his small and successful business after The Won said what he did about "not building that." He also did everything---everything---as a provider first, thinking of himself second. I am his only daughter, was spoiled silly, and encouraged in my craziness by him from birth. That type of love shapes your character.I am very lucky to be his daughter.Thank a Vet anytime you can.

Rove just doubled down and called this race for Romney.



He called it for Obama 4 years ago, not a surprise, we all did, but love him or hate him he is the master of micro targeting.



Barone also called it for Romney and there is no better election
analyst on the planet than Michael Barone. Pick a congressional
district, he can tell you which street serves what food on Tuesdays. He
is the best.



It's up to the voters now.



Get the fuck out and vote.

Posted by: JackStraw at November 04, 2012 09:15 PM (TMB3S)

Did you see Barone in 2000? He was fucking amazing. When Florida's call for Gore was pulled and then awarded to Bush, he told Fox News that it was too early even though Bush had a 100K vote lead with 90% of the votes in, especially if it was a couple of counties and then listed several of the precincts. He said if those were the ones still coming in, this thing was going to get real tight. Damned if he wasn't dead on. Fuck Silver and his models, Barone understands the actual shit on the ground.

We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it.

It's about 50 miles, more or less....but Tammy, OKC is huge and sprawls like an octopus in all directions, over about 6 counties.
But from the NE quadrant of OKC, Stroud is about 50 miles.

Rupert Murdoh tells Chris Christie he must redeclare support for Romney or take blame for a defeat.

I am not saying this proves Romney is on his way to a defeat -- he may well win.

But I agree with Rupert Murdoch [that if Romney loses narrowly, Christie is going to be holding the bag].

Just like I generally agree with Charles Krauthammer, Bill Kristol, and Karl Rove.

You know.

Why does he ruin the joke by dwelling on it?

Best joke he's had in years and he stomps on it.

694 so, tonight I had an interesting conversation.

I have been told that some retired/separated former military and Blackwater types are concerned about certain people causing trouble at polling places and after the election. Concerned about riots.

I was also told that a large number of Blackwater types were in Saudi and offered to ride to the rescue in Benghazi, and were not allowed to.

701 Here is my plan for the next two days: not watch any tv or read any pessimistic stuff. Tonight I turned off Chris Wallace (who I never watch anyway) due to the sight of Axlerod. I may clean my house for a change. I may even give WaPo a vacation from me, as who cares what those ninnyhammers think right now...impotent jacknapes with garterbelts.

I have a DVD of Clint Eastwood movies. I also, to completely freak out my husband, ordered two seasons of Downton Abby. This reminds me, he hates Martha Stewart's voice so much he used to run in from other sections of the house when I watched her. If he mentions my political "obsession" again I am going to record her voice and play it LOUD while he is tied up in the laundry room and whimpering for me to set him free.

Unlike many of you morons, I am not drinking on the 6th. I will be sober and insane for the results. I do have a plan to drink on the 7th, however. I don't drink that often to begin with, but have sort of had a Lent for Mitt thing going (no sugar, either, which may explain my feelings beneath the surface ready to strike like a viper).

720 We shot some guns a few weeks back, and are likely to get one soon. I really liked shooting my fiance's brothers 38 revolver. I was hitting and clustering around my target pretty easily with that. We shot a friends 40 and 45, and the recoil was pretty crazy for both of us. We weren't hitting the target all that well with those, but it was pretty damn exhilarating!

So we're going to shoot at the range again, see if we shoot better the 2nd time with the higher caliber guns, and then narrow it down and make a decision.

Whatever you buy, get a conversion unit in .22lr or a "clone" gun in the same caliber so you can practice with it a LOT cheaply.

The fact is, so long as the gun you pick is reliable (and pretty much all revolvers or military style autos are, nowadays), your proficiency with it is going to matter FAR more than what model or even caliber.

730 the recoil was pretty crazy for both of us.

.357's have more mass than a .38 and you can shoot .38's with'em too. That combo makes for a pretty controllable revolver, and always gives you the option of shooting .357's if you want to make a lot of noise.

745 If you are looking to buy some weapons, plan on getting a pistol, a shotgun, and a rifle. Different weapons for different situations/times of the day. Try a bunch of different brands/styles in each category. If it feels right, then it is right for you. Especially with handguns. You want a pistol that feels like you are pointing your finger at the target. Pistols are harder to master, so pointability is huge, and different for each person. For example, lots of people like glocks, they don't feel right in my hand, 1911s feel perfect and point just right.

DAVID LETTERMAN: Why do you want Mitt Romney to win the election? 23
percent said, “He'll fix the economy," he’ll fix the economy. 26 percent
said, “Overturn ObamaCare.” And 51 percent said they “Want to see Chris
Matthews cry like a baby.” He’s very, very histrionic that Chris
Matthews.



Why does he ruin the joke by dwelling on it?



Best joke he's had in years and he stomps on it.


Agreed. Maybe Letterman felt he had to explain it-- translate it-- soften it, for his liberal audience. (So it's not that Matthews is a fucktard anyone would love to see cry, it's that he's "histrionic.")

Still, good joke. Between this and Letterman's comment to Maddow (that Obama was dishonest about what Romney said on GM bankruptcy), I'm thinking Letterman's lost some of those Obama tingles. Cutting down on the koolaid. Even if he almost certainly voting for Obama.

Maybe he's sensing that Leno is capitalizing on at least occasional Obama jokes, and benefitting from that, and Letterman belatedly realizes he should give him some competition on the non-Obama-bootlicking front (with respect to an audience that is not composed solely of MSNBC-Obama fanboys).

He and his first wife got married when they were 14 ( did I mention we are stereotypical hillbillies?) and he had 3 kids by the time he was 18. He loved them dearly, but the marriage didn't work out. He then met and married my mama, but he missed his kids horribly. I always understood that and never felt slighted; he visited us a lot and I was surrounded by love all around, so I don't think I ever really felt the loss.

769 The just-released CNN/Opinion Research poll with surveys taken Nov 2-4 shows a continued swing toward Romney vs the last few times the poll was taken.

It bumped Obama up on the RCP average, actually, but the older version which was better for Obama wasn't included, so that's just an artifact.

771 It's just that's going to be CNN's final national poll. And all of the numbers in it are beyond belief. Do we really believe Romney wins Independents by 22? Likewise, no one believes Democrats get a +11 advantage. The entire poll is total bullshit, and it's their last shot to have a decent poll. Imo, polling is just totally broken. Not because they want it to be or have an agenda, but just because the polling model is ancient and out-dated. It's not getting a representative demographic.

780 Tammy,

That 45 did feel real good, no question about it. Problem was the recoil on it had me missing the target low anticipating what was coming. Now, I never really shot much other than rifles a couple times, so I want to keep practicing with my friends 45. So does my lady. Mostly because it's just damn awesome. Not sure it's the right one to own though.

I'm thinking the 38 might be the best fit, and it would be much cheaper to keep practicing with, right? And we could purchase either 38's or 357's with that?

Quite possibly so. So I guess the continued swing it shows to Romney and away from Obama can be discounted, however pleasing it would be.

No!!! .38 revolvers fire only .38's. A .357 revolver can fire .38's or .357's, and will be somewhat heavier which reduces recoil.

Posted by: @PurpAv at November 04, 2012 10:21 PM (spjFk)

784 >>> No, they want it to be broken and have an agenda.

The only POSSIBLE agenda that makes any sense is to scare Dem voters into thinking Obama's lost his momentum and Romney's got it now, and that the race is tied.

Which actually makes total sense.

But isn't it also the total opposite of the agenda you usually accuse Democrat polls/media/trolls of having?

Which isn't to say that they can't be doing both. But it is to point out that NO MATTER WHAT direction any of this goes, you're going to filter it through your mind and see "leftist agenda".

For the record, I agree with you big time on the media. And maybe some of the polls. But not all of them.

But my broad point here is it isn't always a plot, sometimes it's just, "Shit happens; polling ain't perfect."

ChristieBlinky, I had a good laugh over your comments about a blackmail file on Kathleen parker. Sent it to a friend who despises her as much as we do!

Glad someone mentioned Cuomo has been AWOL. He will be toast as a candidate in 2016.

Mourdock (whom I worked with back in the 70's) may pull it out. My sister, a very moderate GOP voter, wasn't going to vote for him until the flap started. Then she got mad at the dem ads which were lying about him, so she went ahead and voted straight GOP.

I miss my dad, too. He died 16 years ago. Vet of WWII, North Africa and Italy. Two Bronze stars. Came home and raised his family. He was a yellow dog democrat who was thrilled Clinton won (and never saw the Monica stuff). He would vote for Romney today.

Praying a lot for our country!

Personally I'd go .357, but then I can be a bit pessimistic and want that little extra edge. In reality, both will probably do the job.

Police forces used .38 special for years effectively.

790 >>>Mourdock (whom I worked with back in the 70's) may pull it out.

I hope he does.

I disagree with him on abortion (I was fervently pro-life until I changed position about a year ago), but it is so obvious that he had a different, and principled, point than the one he was slurred with having. Even McCain sickened me for calling on Mourdock for apologizing. He didn't do anything wrong. He expressed a classic and philosophically defensible pro-life position, one I also held and expressed for most of my life.

Further, he seems like a nice guy.

So beyond him just being a Republican (and I don't know much more about him than this blowup over his answer), he actually increased my estimation of him by his answer and handling of it.

I disagree with the guy. But it was an honest, principled answer.

793 It would be fine if people said, "I disagree with Mourdock's abortion stance, and it's a key issue for me, so I'm voting against him."

Fair pool.

What isn't fine is pretending he was saying God supports rape.

Hell, you could make a theological argument for that IF you tried (that God's responsible for everything, good and bad, and maybe other points in support of it). But no way in hell was Mourdock making that argument.

He said life is God's will. So way to twist it in a sick and self-serving fashion.

I do have a wood-burning fireplace (and yes, it can
be said that the smoke and smell from the chimney would do the same
thing) and a propane heater, but for light I'm going to use oil lamps.


May I throw in an idea that came up Saturday at our monthly Preparedness Breakfast. For interior light if TSHTF there are several parameters. Fuel consumption, fire risk, observability from the outside, and light levels amongst others. If there are Morlocks about, you don't want to be too bright inside and draw attention; just enough to get around with an occasional higher intensity task lighting.
Around here [Colorado] in any hardware or home supply store they have solar cell yard lights that you just stick in the ground. The sun charges the batteries during the day, the batteries run for several hours at night. Charge them outside during the day [make a holder out of a cardboard box with holes punched out to stick the stakes in]. Put 2-3 of them in each room at night. They will give enough light to navigate by, and are not bright enough to attract a lot of attention outside; especially if you are careful about windows and placement. For task lighting, there are versions of the same light with an aimable spotlight that is bright enough for task lighting, including reading. The spotlights generally have an on-off switch. Cost: $3-5 each. Charge each day, outside if possible, through a window if not.
No, they don't last all night. But if TSHTF, you are going to be going to a diurnal schedule anyway. No external fuel required, no fire risk, easy to store till needed.Hope this helps somebody.Subotai Bahadur

Then the lefties started going "THOSE MAY NOT HAVE BEEN GUNSHOTS! THEY WERE JUST DOORS ON NEARBY BUILDINGS SLAMMING SHUT!" and the story went poof.

I also remember mention, in some of the articles on the audio analysis, of recovery of a couple of .38 slugs from a tree on campus that would have been from the crowd's direction and going in the general direction of the National Guard guys, but I haven't been able to find anything about that since.
