Quote of the Day

"Jamie Foxx on 'SNL' - 'Great' to Kill White People in New Movie."

- Big Hollywood, December 9th, 2012.

 "Jamie Foxx Says Film Violence Inspires Real-life Violence."

- Big Hollywood, today.

Factual Weapons For Defending the 2nd Amendment

Whenever there's a tragic  shooting the Democrat-Media industrial complex always has the same answer - banning guns - despite the Constitution which is like a hundred years old or something.

Well Bookworm has done the heavy work of gathering together facts for refuting the usual arguments calling for gun control.

The-most-violent-country-in-Europe-Britain-is-also-worse-than-South-Africa-and-U.S.-Mail-Online-Mozilla-Firefox-1252012-91729-PM.bmp

Note that the US has a violent crime rate per 100,000 of just 470 which puts us below every single single country in the above list - all of which have far more restrictive gun laws than the US.

Read the rest here. It pretty much demolishes the case for gun control and shows that a lot of the 'facts' used to justify restricting guns aren't actually true.

Some Good News

Republicans are at their highest level of control of state governments in 60 years and completely control 24 states (governor and legislature). That's a far cry from the suck year of 1976 where the GOP controlled zero states.

Obama to Push Gun Control in Second Term

Even before Sandy Hook it was already on the agenda according to anti-gun activists:

"I am certain Obama thinks our gun laws are insane, and he doesn't ever have to run for office again," said Ladd Everitt, spokesman for the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. "It won't be lost on many people that a sportscaster was willing to speak out about the issue but Obama hasn't found the guts to take on Republicans yet."

Everitt said White House aides have privately assured gun-control advocates that the president would tackle the issue in his second term but didn't commit to specific proposals.

The History of Eggnog

It's been around since medieval times but didn't become popular until the New World made it its own:

Egg-based drinks found new popularity in the American colonies, where nearly everyone had access to cows, chickens, and rum.

Nutritious and relatively stable, eggnog was our first health drink. If you ask me, sipping it is our patriotic duty.

The Space Helmets in Nearly Every Movie

Seven Psychotic Pieces Of Relationship Advice From Cosmo

Pretty much everything a guy does or doesn't do means he's cheating or about to break up with you.

#7. He Shares the Details of His Day, Therefore He Must Be Hiding Something

"Don't be fooled by a guy who offers up tons of minor bits of information about where he's been or what he's been doing. At first, it may seem that because he can describe so much, he must be truthful. But he could actually be trying to cover his ass. 'If he's telling a story and you notice he's peppering it with insignificant details, that's a warning sign,' says Driver.

Which reminds of the classic Ace post from 2007, A Truly Helpful Periodical: The Ace of Spades Women's Magazine, Written By Men which has these tidbits:

"Realizing That Every Time Your Feelings Are Bruised By Somebody It Isn't A Fucking Disaster"

"Every Thought Doesn't Have to Be Expressed"

"Letting Your Man Decompress From a Hectic Day Before Barraging Him WIth Every Detail of Your Day"

"The Words That Come Out Of His Mouth: The Secret Source Of What A Man Is Really Trying To Tell You!"

The comments are even better and could have easily been turned into a book - but I guess that's $3.7 million dollars that the ewok will never see.

18 "Every Thought Doesn't Have to Be Expressed"

So, I'm female and have a female best friend. Nothing fishy. I'm not interesting enough to be non-heterosexual. And just so you know, I tend to talk a lot. Although it's been a lot less in the last few years.

Well, said best friend and I have hit and run conversations where she barrages me with rapid fire meaningless details of her day at work, asks me a token question or two, and then goes right back into rapid fire meaningless details.

Sigh.

I think her husband owes me something for this, since it's pretty apparent I'm doing his job.

I said it was important to realize that things can go bad quite suddenly even when you think you are making a good living, have a nice house, etc. He agreed and then added that he hoped the Tea Party didn't gain power since they wanted the USA to be bankrupt just like the EU. I had spoken with her moonbat father the night before; He said Capitalism and greed is the that has already destroyed America. He voted for Obama so that he might possibly save the dying empire.

81 One of the common arguments that I hear from libs is a variation of "An armed populace can't stand up toa modern military with tanks and APCs and fighters, so there is no longer any need to have military style assault weapons. You can't defend against the government despite your little fantasies."

My prepared response is, "Have you turned on the TV in the last decade? We've spent ten years hunting 14th C. shepherds around an area the size of Texas and we still haven't defeated them. An armed rebellion across an area the size of the US, with access to modern technology and knowledge, would be a nightmare for any military let alone one that was facing defections, desertions, and infilatration by rebels.

85 How many watched the prez tonite?

Herr PBO is now going back to the 'it takes a village' theme.  That 'we' know how to raise your kids better than you.

Now it looks like he's going after guns.  It's for the children don't you know.

"I will use the power of this office... to prevent another tragedy like this..."

Here it comes. He can no more "prevent" this than he can the sun rising.

86 Right, I am going to make a point on Gun Control...

3D Printing. People are already making guns via this new technology. The guns fail after a handful of rounds, but it is still a gun. And printed guns will get better as technology improves.

Gun control is gonna be impossible because digital control is so difficult.

A radical new tact is needed.

The following phrase will allow you to safely navigate the Holidays on the Mobbiot River.

"I am thrilled Obama was reelected so he can show me what an economic genius he is. I look forward to the continued assassinations, and am thrilled he is openly discussing undermining the 1st, 2d, 4th, and 10th amendments. As a person who agrees the United States is the living embodiment of evil and that Happy Face Fascism is the answer to the planet's perils I sincerely hope he gives you everything you want."

99 A little something on the tinsel icicles. You've all seen Patton's prayer for good weather. When the weather cleared, the army air forces showed up in inspiring numbers. My father was there, and says "The sky was black with them." P-47's bombing and rocketing and strafing down on the deck, a solid layer of C-47's kicking out ammo and rations over that, and on top, real Christmasy contrail patterns of the mighty Eighth headed for the supply lines, munitions factories, and Berlin. It may have been the best day the air forces ever had; it was beyond doubt the one most appreciated by infantry.

So, one of the methods used to protect heavy bombers from radio detection was chaff, strips of aluminum foil that returns a lot of noise to radar receivers. On several different mornings, troops on the North Shoulder as well as Bostogne looked out at sunrise and saw the majestic evergreens of the Ardennes festooned with foil strips, just as if someone had decorated them for Christmas. It was inspiring, and spooky.

109 I pull into the gas station tonight right after some dumb bitch literally drove away with the nozzle stuck in her tank---pulled the hose right off the pump and didn't even stop. I thought that shit only happened on TV
Posted by: USS Diversity at December 16, 2012 09:56 PM (MPjT

I was just leaving a gas station once and noticed a woman who had pulled up to a pump with her gas spout on the wrong side. I'm watching her try to pull the the hose far enough to get the nozzle into where it needs to go. She's looking down and to her left as she pulls the hose with her left hand while the nozzle is in her right hand pointed skyward. She doesn't realize that because she's pulling hard her right hand naturally clenches and she's in the process of dispensing gallons of gasoline onto the hood of her SUV.

First, get the nozzle into the spout before activating the pump. Second, how can someone not realize that gasoline is spraying all over the place? Sense of smell? Sense of hearing?

Mulled Ale/Wassail is best. Keeps you nice and warm.

Core about 5 apples (choose the varieties you prefer) and stuff them with light brown sugar and honey in a baking pan and drizzle on a bottle of brown ale. Cook in over for 1/2 hour at 300 deg F.

Add the apples and liquid to five bottles of brown ale and half a bottle of Madiera that have been heated in a crock pot along with allspice, cloves, cinnamon, orange peel, and candied ginger.

Yummy.

195 What the gun rights people need to do is start pushing for more gun ownership in the lower income neighborhoods. Push it as a civil rights issue (it is!) and ask people, some of whom are descended from slaves, if they really want to stand silent without the means of self defense that all free men are entitled to ("as endowed by their creator")
Turn this thing around. The "liberal" left has been the slavemaster from the start, and the Dems have been their party. Sure, a lot of people are too indoctrinated and will claim that guns are the cause of violence in the inner city, but I'm guess a lot more will be amenable to the argument that a gun is the best self defense.

Our best defense is to make sure it is a civil rights issue instead of 2nd amendment or hunting rights, and that minorities are on our side to protect their right to be fully free men in their own homes and neighborhoods

Ironically, "agents of chaos" are almost always in the service of Power and Control. Like the "black block" lefto-anarchists who travel around the world to give authorities an excuse for crackdowns and push for more international government (the opposite of what actual anarchists want).

The only question is, who's "running" Anonymous? I mean, I'm sure there are people who are doing their own thing, but they're too focused on Western politics in general and the US in particular, I suspect, for it to be random young hacktivists.

Margie Phelps has a job with the State of Kansas, she is also a lawyer. Disbarred doesn't matter. They have always been about forcing confrontations so that they could use the legal system to get what they want.

253 Went to see Billy Elliot the stage production today. I was very much looking forward to it. I like plays because even though you can see the orchestra, and you know the characters are just actors in costume and makeup on a stage, you still get lost in the spectacle. You feel happiness, pain, sadness, joy. My experience was spoiled from the moment I read the playbill. Complete leftist claptrap.

The play was set in 1980's Britain during the coal miners' strike. Thatcher's government wouldn't back down from the miners' union demands and thus began a year long strike, during which the miners and their families lived in increasingly degrading conditions. The playbill made sure to point out the hundreds of thousands of jobs lost and placed the blame for the collapse of the British coal industry squarely at the feet of Mrs. Thatcher.

And what we end up with is the story of a young boy with a natural talent for dance, struggling to find his way through a culture of manly coal miners, punctuated by dances choreographed to "Solidarity Forever" and characters wearing Che t-shirts. Within this celebration of all things socialist, the playwrights even had the audacity to include a number professing that all we need is "individuality." I guess even playwrights will sacrifice their creativity on the altar of ideology.

All in, I still enjoyed Billy Elliot, but it sure would be nice to be able to fully succumb to the fantasy and not have the experience tainted by someone using a play as a tool of indoctrination.

I wanted to enjoy a play. I had to endure a lecture.

255 I can't believe any adult woman over the age of 25 reads Cosmo. Posted by: Niedermeyer's Dead Horse at December 16, 2012 09:40 PM (piMMO)

Me neither. How many times can you read "How to Drive Your Man Wild in Bed" and "Is He Cheating On You?" Those are the 2 basic Cosmo articles, recycled and reworded thousands of times since the magazine was founded.

When I was young, I used to enjoy reading the January issue with the horoscopes for the year (or I should say the "Whoreoscope issue. A friend of mine called it the Slutscope). As I recall, it read "You'll ring in the New Year making hot love to a lusty Aries, but you'll soon tire of his controlling ways and you'll escape his clutches with a handsome Libra you'll meet on the ski slopes in Aspen. But his indecisiveness will get tiresome, and you, you mischievous minx of a Leo, won't be able to resist a quick fling with a hot Scorpio in the elevator at work. On the 20th, you'll be swept off your feet by a handsome Taurus..."

According to the Cosmo horoscope, you'd be banging a different guy every 5 days or so... Oh, and each sign got it's own signature "erotic outfit" which was always something like crotchless satin underwear and matching nipple clamps.

Modern monarchies can't work.

Monarchy is a very good transition from tribalism/strong man-ism.

It provides incentives for one man to break the aristocracy/warlords because it is in his own interest to do so while at the same time restricting him with tradition.

But in the modern area where tradition means little and the problem is not petty warlords fighting each other, but the united focus of bureaucrats working together, it is almost the opposite of what will help with our current woes.

273 You are not allowed to have any guns even though you legal can but, as someone in you neighborhood is mentally unstable and can not legally have any. They brake into you house when you are not home, blow up your gun safe and get your guns. There is nothing the state can do to the mentally unstable person such as make them take meds or send them to jail or a mental hospital that would violate their civil rights. So you must hand in your current guns you legal have or move out of state and never return under threat of jail time.

327 Step 1 - nationwide registration of everything. Then anyone who fails to register is an automatic felon and will be dealt with very very harshly to set the stage for Step 2.

Step 2 - Registration lists magically morph into confiscation lists. If you can't produce everything you registered, and it wasn't previously reported stolen, then you're a felon and will be dealt with very harshly.

This has been the pattern followed world wide.

336 Kind of confusing about the NFL. Last week I was convinced that the Texans would win the AFC but would choke in the playoffs since they could not beat a good team (Packers, Patriots). Now I watch this game in which the Patriots play a good team at home and are getting their asses kicked. I wonder if this is the beginning of a trend just like the NFL from '84-96 when the NFC ruled the Super Bowls.
Or it could be that Brady's carefully shorn pubic area is causing him as much trouble as his Ugg boots.

Posted by: boulder hobo at December 16, 2012 10:27 PM (QTHTd)



To get your blood worked up a little bit more, Westboro does not thrive on anti-military money. It thrives on the money of the people they f'k over.

The scam they have going is that if you win a civil rights case in the U.S., you're entitled to reimbursement by the people you sued or the people who are suing you (this is due to the Civil Rights Attorney’s Fees Award Act of 1976). Since, Phelps, along with a bunch of his kids are lawyers, guess who gets paid?

So, what they do is act like total dicks. Get sued or have people try to stop them. Go to court. Collect a paycheck. Rinse. Repeat.

Maybe somebody should note this fact over the next few days, publicize it, and do something about it...

You do NOT have to register guns in this country. You have to get an OK to buy a gun. It is not "registered". After you buy it you can do whatever the fuck you want with it. The fact that you purchased the gun does not mean you still own it or have any clue where it is.

They get sued all the time. Lawsuits are a function of being a large scale business. Nationalization would be a real risk.

Posted by: Jones in CO at December 16, 2012 10:58 PM


Jones, that is the special kind of deviousness that I've always appreciated from you. Spot on.

Alas, the question will be framed as "...do you own any guns?"

The last time I was asked that question by a doctor, I ran through the litany of "dangerous" things in the house: cordless drills, circular saws, jig saws, Dremel™ tools, extension ladders, step ladders, soldering irons, chef's knives, paring knives, meat cleavers...I went on for like fifteen minutes. Finally, the doctor stopped me and asked why I was going on about these things and not answering the question about guns. My response was that the aforementioned items were far more likely to cause injury than my legally owned, properly secured guns.

Posted by: AltonJackson at December 16, 2012 11:14 PM (JMmQ9)

406 372 The best response is just to say "this is not relevant" and if the doc pushes, say "To the best of my knowledge I am unable to answer that question at this time".Thank you "Samuel Adams"; you do your namesake proud.

Interesting about the lead foil--we had the stuff when I was a child, and I can remember Ma making us remove it carefully, and her ironing it to smooth it.

We still have some left we put on each year, and it gets smoothed after each use. Along with that there are a bunch of surviving glass bulbs that are over 65 years old. The kids will get them as part of our family tradition when we're gone--as it should be done.

I very rarely watch TV anymore. I might flip through the news in the morning or watch some movie that happens to be on, but that is about it. I just get everything on line. The news if fresher, has less B.S., and has a wider variety of information.

The reason I got on Twitter is because it is the perfect tool for the rapid exchange of information. I used to us IM a lot, but many people skipped out to pots randomly on Facebook. AoSHQ is one of the only two places I know of where you can in effect have a conversation with a real live human being anymore.

443 After noting all the comments about 'watering down' good scotch, it is distilled off at near 190 proof, then diluted down to around 125 proof for cask aging. After aging, it is again diluted down to 80 proof for bottling.

So that good scotch you are drinking has been diluted (or polluted if you prefer) twice already.

I always wondered if to battle attempts at gun control it might be possible for gun/ammo manufacturers to refuse to sell to police forces. It might not work against a federal attempt, but I could never figure out why any company would sell guns or ammo (or body armor) to, say, the Chicago police force. They should just say "If you think our products are evil then we will spare you the temptation."

So Barrett now refuses to sell any products at all to any government agency in CA, but he sells to anyone else in CA, as long as it's legal. Hell, LAPD had several rifles in for repair/service at Barrett, and he had them shipped back unrepaired with a big fuck you.

I've been to six colleges and as far as I remember only one had armed campus police.

The
university in my hometown is Wichita State University. They have an
actual police department with I think around 10 full time armed
officers.


Posted by: Samuel Adams at December 16, 2012 10:42 PM (ZOf1l)

I went to a small school in rural Virginia, and the two campus cops were armed. To be fair, they weren't campus security but full fledged cops because we were out in the middle of nowhere.
The school had gun lockers where we stored our guns, for squirrels and such, and we were supposed to store them there. Being that we were in the middle of nowhere, we hunted a lot, especially in the morning before classes. So the "rule" was that you needed to return your gun as soon as possible, meaning that everyone pretty much just kept them in their trunks until hunting season started or ended, or the semester ended. Usually it was semester end.

The reason I got on Twitter is because it is the
perfect tool for the rapid exchange of information. I used to us IM a
lot, but many people skipped out to pots randomly on Facebook. AoSHQ is

500 463 Alright so where is the best place to get a .308/7.62 upper and lower for an M4? Similar to an LR8. He'll what's the best way to put the whole rig together?

Posted by: Exasperated Expat at December 16, 2012 11:37 PM (gkfSV)


A .308 upper and a /223 lower *don't* go together. The M4 is a small/light action for .223, pistol calibers, 7.62x39, and other small cartridges.

The lower for a .308 rifle isn't an M4 at all. It's an AR-10/SR-25/LR-8 or whatever. Not compatible.

Now, assuming you actually meant a .308-compatible lower, GA Precision, LMT, LaRue are rated pretty well but not cheap. Everyone points to DPMS - but you might get lucky or you might get a "Friday Afternoon Rifle," I have seen both.

Also look at FALs and FN SCAR-17S and the FNAL (probably the cheapest of the bunch).

My hair is naturally curly and thick, so when it's long, it's unmanageable and I feel like my face is dwarfed by a mass of curls. (I didn't have to work at having "big hair" in the '80's.) Guys like it long but I have to keep it short(ish) if I want to be able to run a comb through it.

544 It is a chump's game waiting for the dot-gov to come to you to confiscate your guns. Once they make that decision, it is a declaration of war; one may want to consider going on the offensive.


All these soft handed academics, politicians, and pundits pushing it - knowing they won't be doing the dirty work - might learn their actions have painful consequences.


If the police decide to be tools of oppression, they too will might learn that they are vulnerable. Right now, under the current ROE, they operate in a sweet spot: high authority, low personal accountability. If John Q. Public no longer believes in the system, well, that personal accountability part of the equation may change.

547 As you well know, this place has some of the funniest comments I have ever seen. But today I saw a post that made me laugh more than I ever have on this site...Bravo.......Bravo.

Obama was never poor.



No, he wasn't, but he was in The Narrative. A regular man of the people.



From his autobiography:



The details of my life are quite inconsequential... very well,
where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving
boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant
for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named
Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He
would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark.
Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general
malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood
was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make
meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and
beaten with reeds- pretty standard really. At the age of twelve I
received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen a Zoroastrian named
Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a
shorn scrotum... it's breathtaking- I highly suggest you try it.

Not arguing with your point per se, but it is kind of vague. When I power-lifted, I'm pretty much convinced I did it the right way since I got so strong without any injuries. But just like an NFL player (which in no way am I comparing myself to) who retires and can barely walk, I'd have to say that other factors may weigh in as well.

Posted by: Samuel Adams at December 17, 2012 01:06 AM (ZOf1l)

651 Since I'm humiliating myself anyway, I may as well put this out there, too: I'm pretty sure my car and my commute teamed up to hurt my back. I can't even claim anything manly like moving a couch by myself or anything like that.

Nope, my car just happens to be designed for someone about 3" shorter than me, and my commute makes it almost impossible to get the sun visors to block the sun. Driving home means a pretty constant shifting to avoid going blind. I think I just managed to shift wrong, and that's what did it.

I certainly can't think of anything else that would have done it.

655 Nope, my car just happens to be designed for someone about 3" shorter than me, and my commute makes it almost impossible to get the sun visors to block the sun. Driving home means a pretty constant shifting to avoid going blind. I think I just managed to shift wrong, and that's what did it.

It may be true.

Get different sun visors... Get Blublocker or Ray bands ... Get tinted windows ... Lower car seat ... Remove some pillows // cushioning ... Get new car ... Get some peppermint schnapps for your cocoa ...

663 Step 1 - nationwide registration of everything. Then anyone who fails to register is an automatic felon and will be dealt with very very harshly to set the stage for Step 2.Step 2 - Registration lists magically morph into confiscation lists. If you can't produce everything you registered, and it wasn't previously reported stolen, then you're a felon and will be dealt with very harshly.This has been the pattern followed world wide.

Posted by: @PurpAv at December 16, 2012 10:54 PM


The confiscation thing is probably haggling. They open with a high price and then meet you where they will settle. Registration and limiting access to semi's shotguns and pistols. An active gun grab is expensive and confrontational. Suspect that they will look to grind you down. Eventually they'll get what they want by attrition. You either register or go underground. That, by and large has a similar effect. Once you're a felon facing something like 10 years or some such bullshit, you have to hide the damn things. Then, they become pretty much useless for anything but an all in situation. Can't keep them at your place. Can't carry. The threat of an eventual search becomes too much. Someone will rat you out. Even if you don't have them, anyone who knows something about you can drop a dime on you and say you have them, if you've crossed them. The govt can wait you out.

Which means that the laws need to improved! We need to make it illegal to shoot your own mother in the face! We need to make car theft illegal! We need to make it illegal to come on to a school grounds and shoot the principal! We need to identify each one of those guns and make them all illegal!

That will solve EVERYTHING!!!

716 If we ban criminals, then nobody would be able to do this sort of horrific thing.

Because while guns are a major -- perhaps overwhelming -- part of the problem, it also takes a criminal to pull the trigger.

While we have a second amendment right to own and use guns, we do not have anything enshrined in the constitution about freedom to be a criminal.

Therefore there ought to be little problem passing a law banning crime.

Heh, good riff. I saw Obama not too long ago pretending to know what he was talking about, saying that while he was of course down with this country's sacred, time-honored tradition of hunting, we are now dealing with "semi-automatic assault weapons" that should only be in the hands of soldiers, not civilians. So, apparently this genius thinks a rifle that fires a .308 one shell at a time is sacred, time-honored and must be protected, while another that fires a .311 one shell at a time only belongs in the hands of soldiers. I bet that stuttering little prick couldn't tell them apart if I put one of each in his hands.
