The Great Gun Buy-Up

Bob Owens stopped by a local gun store and found it picked over.

They didn't know when they'd be getting anything back in stock, from magazines to rifles to pistols. Manufacturers were running full-bore, but couldn't come close to keeping up with market demand.It wasn't just the AR-15s, the AK-pattern rifles, the M1As, and the FALs that were sold out. It really hit me when I realized that the World War-era M1 Garands , M1 carbines, and Enfield .303s were gone, along with every last shell. Ubiquitous Mosin-Nagants-of which every gun store always seems to have 10-20-were gone. So was their ammo. Only a dust free space marked their passing. I've never seen anything like it.

Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years was gone. This isn't a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned. This is a society preparing for war.

Or maybe just preparing for the unknown which can include war and chaos.

Ammo supplies are down 90% from pre-election levels.

More Upper-class Hippie Terrorists

The privileged daughter of a prominent city doctor, and her boyfriend - a Harvard grad and Occupy Wall Street activist - have been busted for allegedly having a cache of weapons and a bombmaking explosive in their Greenwich Village apartment.

Morgan Gliedman - who is nine-months pregnant - and her baby daddy, Aaron Greene, 31, also had instructions on making bombs, including a stack of papers with a cover sheet titled, "The Terrorist Encyclopedia,'' sources told The Post yesterday.

People who know Greene say his political views are "extreme," the sources said.

Video Games - Mostly Good For You?

The number of aliens you kill may directly contribute to an improvement in your brain. This may not sound like a typical scientific discovery, but it has come from some of the world's finest neuroscience laboratories. In fact, it is the genuine outcome of studies on how action video games can improve your attention, mental control and visual skills. We're talking here about fast-moving titles such as Halo, Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto, which demand quick reflexes and instant decision-making. They're often portrayed as the most trashy, vapid and empty-headed forms of digital entertainment, but it looks as if they may be particularly good at sharpening your mental skills

But what about the violence?

With regard to violence, violent video games have been found to cause small, reliable but temporary increases in aggressive thoughts and behaviour in the lab - as have other forms of violent media, including films and the news.

But in terms of real-world violence "delinquent peers, depression and an abusive family environment account for actual violent incidents, while exposure to media violence seems to have only a minor and usually insignificant effect."

Remembering Birger Stronsheim and the Heroes of Telemark

In 1943 he and three other Norwegians parachuted into occupied Norway on a mission to destroy Germany's Norsk Hydro heavy water plant. A previous team had been captured, tortured and killed by German troops.

"They didn't reckon that they would get out alive," Mr. Stromsheim's son, also named Birger, recalled in an interview for this obituary. "They weren't sure of that. They were scared in some ways, but there was no panic."

Stormy conditions helped muffle the explosion inside the building, and the men made it safely back across the gorge before the Nazis realized what had happened. Nazis searched the area for days afterward, but no shots were fired and no one was hurt in the second mission. Many years later, experts determined that the Nazis were far from being able to build a nuclear weapon.

Mr. Stromsheim, who grew up skiing, hiking and bicycling, was among several soldiers who made it to safety by skiing more than 200 miles to Sweden.

He died last month in Oslo at the age of 101.

How To Sell Government Bonds

Try to make them sexy:

"I want my future husband to be diligent about money," a 27-year-old woman says in an ad being run in free magazines promoting a fixed-rate, three-year note that Japan started selling last week. "Playboys are no good." She's one of five women featured in the page, which says "Men who hold JGBs are popular with women!!"

11 To continue the gun theme, I offer this excerpt from ann Barnhardt's site:

People are emailing me desperately asking me to write something on the move to ban and confiscate weapons, particularly Diane Feinstein's bill. Sorry, but I don't waste my time on such stupidity. Nothing and no one can take away your right to defend yourself, your family and your property. If you STILL don't get that, then I really can't help you. They can pass whatever horseshit laws they want to, and my response, and the response of every thinking person should consist of two words: seven letters, three "f"s. If there is any lesson in the fact that you people know who I am in the first place and read everything I write, it is the fact that if you go on offense and bayonet charge these S.O.B.'s, they'll fold. Burn a koran, and GIVE THEM YOUR ADDRESS. Charge!
Remember, there is no such thing as coercion. The government CANNOT disarm you. Only YOU can disarm you by capitulating to them. Buy a flag with an AR-15 on it and fly it outside your house. Post pictures of yourself with your weapons on the internet. QUIT COWERING. The fact that you people cower is the one and only reason these assholes in D.C. have any power at all - you GIVE IT TO THEM.

Happy New Year, Horde!

14 Sexy bonds? Reminds me of a true story involving Playboy.

Playboy used to have sexy pic on their stock certificates. This resulted in a lot of men who got a single share of stock and then did nothing with it. The company was still required to send their financial to every one of them, and it was getting cost prohibitive. To solve this problem, Playboy did a reverse stock split and the new stock was issued without any sexy pics.

It is interesting to observe how the government class tries to rule us.

87 OK so my new suggestion on ammo is to get the stuff that the production reloaders probably won't be making if the SHTF or there is any major disruption in ammo production or availability. Think 30-30 and .38 Special and .38 Super and the boutique calibers like 22-250. At this point wallyworld prices are gonna be the lowest you'll ever see ammo prices again.

Well, we appear to be nearing a mini

with Senate deals on and off, Biden proclaiming victory yet Senate
Democrats are said not have consented (yet).
*WHITE HOUSE SAID TO REACH BUDGET DEAL WITH REPUBLICANS*SENATE FISCAL CLIFF VOTE POSSIBLE BY 10:30 P.M.: REID SPOKESMAN*SENATE DEMOCRATS SAID NOT TO HAVE CONSENTED TO DEAL


State of the idiocy appears to be: The 2-month sequester delay: cuts
would come half from defense half-non-defense. 2 month window to
give all sides time for bigger deal. No debt ceiling resolution.
Tax rises for 400/450k, Cap Gains/Dividend up to 20%, small rise in
estate tax and restrictions on personal tax deductions. Simple - as we
have said for a while - assuming this passes seamlessly, this is
nothing but a can-kicking delay to the 'extraordinary' debt ceiling date
- two words - Stop.Gap. And in two months, it's not just the sequester but the debt ceiling too. Enjoy your night.

-
The anti-White, anti-Christian and anti-American left wants a win that's racially, religiously, constitutionally and in every way radical, especially on levels where you are not allowed to talk back without being called a monster or a bigot.

They don't want "conflict". They'd rather win without any resistance.

193 Robert Costa is reporting the deal was agreed to with Senate Republicans. As part of the deal, during the two-month delay in sequestration, the government is going to encourage people to transition from traditional IRAs to Roth accounts to make up for the spending cuts that won't occur in Jan. and Feb.

1. As somebody who said there's a good chance the ultimate deal would be worse than Plan B once that was rejected...okay, I won't say it but it's difficult.

2. On the bright side, AMT patching was made permanent (at least under 250k I think).

3. As much as this is an ass raping, I'll live with it as long as the amount of cuts called for by sequestration ultimately survive. And, no, I'm willing to bet a penny on that yet.

I am allergic to every antibiotic except Cipro, and have refused that, since I don't feel all that bad, really. ( I have fibromyalgia so I am used to feeling vaguely crappy all the time. ) Not even any chest pain, although I am terribly short of breath. My fever was down to 101 last night, so I made my cousin come get me this morning and checked out of the hospital AMA.

Mama is not amused, but I have the innate Appalachian hillbilly distrust of government and hospitals. Got nuthin' but love and respect for doctors and nurses, but hospitals scare me.

213 Today, my middle aged wife came home with a pierced nose. I FUCKING HATE face piercings, and she knows it. I've told her for years that I don't like them, and had epic "discussions" with my tattooed and pierced everything niece.

I dunno what to do about this. It's her nose, not mine, but i have to look at it. it's HORRIBLE. Frankly, this is just a devastating cap to a fucking crushing year. I'd be less upset if she'd come home with "Thug Life" tattooed across her breasts. Now when I look at my wife, I don't see the beautiful woman I've loved for decades. I see the morning after a drunken night in Newark, looking down and desperately hoping that last week's penicillin shot is still hanging around.



And I'm stuck. There's nothing I can do. Number 1, as I said, it's not my nose. Number 2, if I ask her to take it out, I'm pretty sure that the throbbing infection that will inevitably take its place won't be an improvement. Finally, it's done, punctured, pierced. Her nose has a fucking hole in it. Nothing can change that. Seems my choices are either a stud or a scar.



Plus I'm the designated driver, so I can't even get drunk. What a brilliant fucking clusterfuck of an ending to a completely fucked year. Happy Damn New Year.

For the longest time, CZ 452's and "America" models had an accurate-looking hooded front, but it was soldered on and couldn't be changed out for a true globe sight without going back to the "factory." I considered the action to be match-grade, so their decision to limit their rifle to squirlz really puzzled me.

Walther is having a go at the US target market this season, but for decades Dieter has had it all to himself.

The further away you get the more it matters.

I look at it as an entry level investment to see what I really want to mount on my new EBG

I think that was already well known. Actually the fluoroquinolones (Cipro family) don't usually cause problems between the individual drugs so ya got me there. I remember as a resident I had someone like you once and I gave her Cipro even though it is really not a respiratory type choice at all. Like you, it was about all she could take and it actually still offered some effectiveness. Cured her suspected UTI too.
Just concerned because pneumonia of bacterial origin is nothing to take lightly in some folks.

Well,played Monopoly with the fam and a friend of my son's tonight, and fortunately young Donald Trump (sore loser and ungracious winner) did not win (my younger son, a budding capitalist). I sabotaged him by trading with young Sigmund Freud (my older son).

My dog is nutz. I was out shoveling snow and moving wood to the front wood rack on the porch, and he was racing around with an apple in his mouth. My teenage sons made and anatomically correct "snowman" with two green apples as..... well , the male external genitals.
The dog thought the apple was a ball and wanted me to play catch with him. Eventually he bit it in half.


And that was my day. Happy New Year, you crazy bastards.

298 "An "inexpensive loopy" on an Anschutz? Are we talking competition iron sights here, or some kind of field model?"

Older field gun, not a competition model. No idea, but I'd guess it's from the 1970s. My 452 is the silhouette model, five years old or so with the synthetic Monte Carlo stock. I switch out scopes all the time because I need higher power for silhouette, but frankly, there's something dumb-looking about it with a big scope so I usually take it off after. I agree re: the CZ fixed sights. They still have them on the Lux models.

CZ action is the real deal. I absolutely love that gun. Earlier this year I presided over a prairie dog massacre out at my buddy's ranch. If I ever have children, my CZ will be his or her first gun.

Mosin-Nagant: Even if you miss the shockwave of the bullet will kill the animal.

AR15: You are careful to keep in clean in the field.

AK47: You don’t worry so much about some dirt getting in it.

Mosin-Nagant: It still has gritty grease inside it from when the Finnish army put it into storage.

watering hole and wait for the game to come to you for a shot within 10
yards.

Mosin-Nagant: With a solid shooting position, you can hit that deer on
the other side of the valley… and recover the bullet in the tree it was
standing in front of.

AR15: You can buy 100 round magazines that require dry-carbon lubricant.

AK47: You can do push-ups on your 30 round steel mag (Saw this in a SPETSNATZ documentary).

you don’t have tent stakes, the bayonet will work as one.

AR-15: Carried by elite special forces and highly-trained American soldiers

AK-47: Carried by illiterate peons and unwilling conscripts.

Mosin-Nagant-Nagant: Carried by Vassily Zaitsev.

AR15: Might just stop that charging terrorist with a three round burst

blow up the IED in the next block from the shockwave of the bullet…

AR15: Shoots a .22.

AK47: Shoots a carbine round.

Mosin-Nagant: Shoots a cannonball.

319 Mindy, I'm sorry about the Henry Survival Rifle. It's so lovable, has a great hertiage and all, but, the toolings are old and it just isn't the quality piece that a lot of Henry products are. There are business reasons for this, some old disputes, but basically I don't recommend it for anything but a canoe gun.

The "survival" part was the take-down space saving, making it fit in places like ejection seats or a boat compartment or a backpack. For home defense, this is not an issue, and a takedown doesn't make it for concealed carry. If you really need that function in a .22, go for the Marlin Papoose.

I reckon a lot of people will tell you that a .22 is not the gun for defense. I'll let them argue that out.

<blockquote>People are emailing me desperately asking me to write something on
the move to ban and confiscate weapons, particularly Diane Feinstein's
bill. Sorry, but I don't waste my time on such stupidity. Nothing and no
one can take away your right to defend yourself, your family and your
property. If you STILL don't get that, then I really can't help you.
They can pass whatever horseshit laws they want to, and my response, and
the response of every thinking person should consist of two words:
seven letters, three "f"s. If there is any lesson in the fact that you
people know who I am in the first place and read everything I write, it
is the fact that if you go on offense and bayonet charge these S.O.B.'s,
they'll fold. Burn a koran, and GIVE THEM YOUR ADDRESS. Charge!

Remember, there is no such thing as coercion. The government CANNOT
disarm you. Only YOU can disarm you by capitulating to them. Buy a flag
with an AR-15 on it and fly it outside your house. Post pictures of
yourself with your weapons on the internet. QUIT COWERING. The fact that
you people cower is the one and only reason these assholes in D.C. have
any power at all - you GIVE IT TO THEM.

I am reminded of a quote by Alexander Solzhenitsyn in his GULAG
Archipelago that seems on point. It was about the greatest regret of
those in the slave labor camps:


What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he
went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would
return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of
mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of
the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with
terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the
staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly
set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes,
hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?

Part I The Prison Industry, Ch. 1 “Arrest” (p13, The Gulag Archipelago,
Collins 1974)


That is a lesson to be learned.

Posted by: ontherocks at December 31, 2012 09:57 PM (aZ6ew)</blockquote>Earlier this year I had the pleasure of meeting her and talking to her for a while. Noting that I am literally old enough to be her father and had no intent of getting a couple of drinks, or anything else, in her. The good Lady is a tiny thing, and yet is like a force of nature. She believes. And she is powerful strong. And yet she personally is surprisingly quiet and humble. If she took a liking to you, you would not forget it. And if she took a dislike to you .... y'all had better have your affairs in order.Part of our conversation was for the time when the reason for the stocking up comes to pass. I was trying to convince her that she was valuable enough to be of more use in the rebuilding afterwards. She would have nothing to do with measures for her own protection. She does not have a microgram of compromise. If she should have to board Charon's Ferry, she will have one hell of a party of sideboys as an honor guard.She wears the symbol of the Christian resistance to the French Revolution in the Vendee. The Revolutionary government anticipated the actions of Stalin, and tried to murder or starve all the Christians there. I see her as being ready to be a martyr if need be, but I also see the touch of St. Michael on her.

Used to own one. It fired just fine, but I have a bum wrist that I broke twice and had to have surgically put back together, so it would ache after shooting a couple magazines. I ended up selling it to my dad. Currently I use my wife's CZ-75 P01 in 9mm, which doesn't seem to bother me, but I may end up getting a Walther P22 for target shooting.Rifle-wise, I've got two Chicom Type 59s my grandfather brought back from Vietnam. One's too rusty to the point of being afraid to shoot it, but I'm considering having a gunsmith take a gander at the other one and maybe adding a modernized stock and magazine to it. Does anyone have any thoughts on that?

As 2012 comes to a close and 2013 will open soon for America, remember to keep your own counsel, but don't take stock of your fears.

Yes, the future is going to really suck for a lot of people, and some of us alive now won't see the end of it. I hate to believe that the future is not going to be better than the past, because that is just not the American way.

But as a country, we have lost our way. Not everyone has lost their way, but we can't steer the boat for everybody, and the ones with their hands on the tiller noware determined to take it over the falls in hopes of wrecking it and rebuilding it their way.
The future is going to be a struggle, but the Sons of Liberty who made us a free countrystarted out with much less, yet in the end won. Ir's not every man for himself yet, so try to find others around you that can be trusted, and be someone that others can trust in. I trust several of my neighbors (the former Marine across the street, the guy that works for AEP, and several others). Others, not so sure about because I think they are stealth Obamabots.

Ann Barnhart seems a little extreme at times, but yet she might turn out to be 100 per cent right (I hope not and that's not a knock on her). Anyone who has studied history and read about the collectivist movements of the last 100 years has plenty to worry about. It could get really bad, and literally millions of people who call themselves Americans WANT IT TO HAPPEN.

Be of good cheer, though. Keep your nerve, and know that this country will rise again, and have a new birth of Freedom. We have to believe that and just keep going.

373 OK Mindy, in that case Merovign's advice is right. Plenty of people willing to help you with a first gun choice, once you know your way around a little.

Around my parts, for decades it was easier to find a gun club than it was to find an instructor. Even now we get a lot of people who have taken a CCW course and nothing else, who join a club to get their real shooting education. If you have someone offering a basic course, pistol, rifle, or home defense, it's worth it. Speak the language, make a few friends, and they will be glad to let you shoot their guns until you find what you need.

I do really like the Marlin. I have a Ruger 10-22 I bought mostly for the son, but Ive added a Kidd trigger, target barrel and new stock to it, with a adjustable cheek and butt. He's grown out of the .22 and is buying a Remington 700.

397 "the Sons of Liberty who made us a free countrystarted out with much less, yet in the end won."

I recall reading that at the time of the Revolution, one third of the country were pro-revolution, one third were Loyalists, and one third (the Honey Boo Boos of their day) were indifferent.

Maybe that's the way it always is - a minority of the people dragging the others with them, either for good (our Revolution) or evil (the Russian Revolution). And a sizable number of people who are simply dumb turds who can't see anything past their own noses.

398 A ramble.

I read Bob Owen's piece. I personally doubt it is as far advanced as he thinks, but then admit "ready to rumble meters" are not something easily checked, and that I have no true idea.

Of course, if one is to have a war, one must have proper war aims. If nothing else it keeps folks on the side lines when they might join the other side.

Now, it occurs to me that the gay marriage proponents have put on one of the least meaty civic arguments ever. So much so--so facile, so devoid of any deep thought, so bereft of a documentary history of argumentative writing that will explain the issue to future generations--that I have decided that, though I am by nature a traditionalist, that I will do it for them, as they seem incapable of putting forth rational arguments designed to convince the unconvinced themselves, but instead just think that will mock and intimidate you into agreement, or attempt to impose their will by convincing three or five people in judicial robes. Well, none of that for me, thank you. I like logic, and I am tired of the piss-pot they are making of things.

So, first, the issue to me is not marriage *equality*, but marriage *expansion*. What proponents wish has simply never before existed, and they can point to ancient Greek society all they wish. It just has never existed before. Therefore, it is a matter of "do we expand the concept in new and different ways, do we create something new and novel?" This is not desegregation, this is not ending slavery. It would be something new under the sun. People have a right to say yea or nay on that, and to not be vilified for it. I believe those introducing strange and untried new things have the onus upon themselves to prove the case, not skeptics the onus to disprove.

I myself am no great fan of the idea of gay love. Period. I have a natural aversion to the idea, almost guaranteed to be biological in origin. And we are biological creatures. I feel no shame in having a intense built-in aversion to putting my thing in the wrong thing. I feel no shame in being uncomfortable about it. I'm supposed to be. It's how nature guarantees it won't happen, and that I go after the right target. Because while I am a creature of free will, I am also a biological being, with hardwired programming--and sex being the most hard-wired of them all. I am supposed to, as an animal, have the sex urge. As a sentient being, I am supposed to control it. Unlike mere rutting animals.

Now, it occurs to me that when the Lord blessed Abraham and Sarah by telling her that she would bear a child, and that Abraham's descendents would be as numerous as the grains a sand, a boon for mankind--in short, when the Lord promised to Abraham that which Abraham most desired, Abraham then naturally did what every man does when his boss promises him a raise or promotion.

He immediately challenges the boss's next move. 

In this case, the Lord going down to Sodom and Gomorrah to investigate the outcry that has come to him. 

In other words, Abraham challenged the Lord. Respectfully, but he did challenge, and in a way that is hard for our non-hierarchical society to fully appreciate the impact Abraham doing so would have had on readers/listeners of the story back in them days. He didn't just challenge the Lord--he haggled. For several rounds. All for people he basically did not know, and the vast majority could not have cared about. Must have been unheard of.

Now, it is my view that Abraham was chosen because he was a good man when you did not have to be such to thrive, and when you in fact might lose a little (or a lot) for being such. That he was good for it's own sake--that he was a rock, unalterable, and that was what was needed. That he would challenge God himself if he thought an injustice was being done--but that he also was not of imperial will, thinking he alone had the answers. He would also obey. Which, for many reasons, was what was needed. A man who was righteous, but not someone following merely for material gain, and who could be counted on to not lose himself if successful, but stay true to beliefs.

So..if we are biological creatures, and if the sex drive is a hardwired drive of the body, could not malfunctions of that drive be considered a birth defect? Or an impairment? If so, is it humane for us to force a denial of that drive, if it is a biological defect or damaged area, even though it is an unintended functioning of the body? Is it humane for us to force that individual to fight a greater emotion than others, even if that person be of perhaps greater other virtue? This is by no means to criticize the need for society to procreate first and foremost, nor is it to criticize the idea that we do not give in to every bodily desire,  for we should be rational creatures controlling our bodies and its urges, our sin, as needed. But of course, we aren't competely able to transcend, to control, because we are creatures of our bodies. We will never overcome the limitations of being biological creatures by our own biological-based efforts. 

So, what do we do with those who are hardwired differently, sex-wise? We certainly do not deny marriage to those who will never procreate, or who can no longer do so. To do so would be too cruel, especially as we all grow old and die, and being abusive to those whose bodies are frail, especially because of age, is not the sign of those who value excellence of thought and character, but is the sign of those who value material strength only. Likewise, we do not throw deformed babies from cliffs, as the Spartans did. We nurse them instead, allowing souls and minds to grow, in spite of the limitations of the body. 

I thus admit that I have to think about this issue of gays. And it does seem to me that an injustice is being done, though I admit I do not bring much passion to the subject. As in alomost-none. I am a traditionalist. But, nevertheless. There is also the fact that it causes secular problems for liberty right now, and I do feel liberty is something that is supposed to be important. "You do not need kings".

And so, if I could ask the Lord, whom I am not absolutely sure exists, but if he does, I would in fact like to ask him, and in the expectation that the numbers would be small, and that it woud be intended for those whose bodies have let them down, that either never were capable of being that which they ought to be, or became that way because of disease or infection, I would ask that we allow for that kind of marriage, not because we are in love with the idea, but because we do not have the heart to be so cruel as to make a man born with one leg run a marathon every day of his life.

I feel liberty is important, and that it is important to preserve the spirit of this last, best hope of man on Earth before Leviathan sets in on a global scale. "You do not need kings." We will not win a fight in this nation to impose strict-1950s style things, especially if done merely because the Law says it must. We can win one for liberty.

Your possum recipe on the other thread reminded me of a carp recipe my father used.

Take a large carp, nail it to a two-by-four, soak in a tub of brine for four hours. Prepare a bed of hot coals, preferably mesquite or hickory. Lay the board with the fish on top of the coals and cover with aluminum foil. Let simmer, or stew, for 60-90 minutes. Remove the board from the coals. Remove the fish from the board. Discard the carp. Eat the two-by-four.

466 One of my uncles I was visiting for Christmas said he had a WWII US rifle he had no idea what it was. So I asked if it had a magazine. No. So its probably an M-1 Garand I am thinking. He says care to look at it. Said sure. So he pulls out of a closet a 1903 Springfield. This rifle had the old flip up ladder sight and it was stamped Springfield Armory. It was also so packed with cosmoline when he asked me to pull the trigger - showed him how to remove the bolt and put it back with an empty chamber - the firing pin moved like it was stuck in molasses. Told him he needs to really research it before deciding what to do.

478 re the NYC 'terrorists' -- ya, they sound like an Ayers/Dohrn clone couple, but a bit overblown. The only real hazard they presented was the possession of a small amount (7 g) of HMTD, a pretty sensitive explosive but waaaay easy to make. They had a version of The Anarchist's Cookbook, a few 30 round mags, and some weapons that wouldn't even raise an eyebrow in many states.

I'm not defending them, I'm sure they are OWS scum, but this is how things get blown out of proportion.

493 "I thought during the Revolutionary War that only THREE PERCENT of the colonists were willing to fight the Crown"

Maybe only 3 percent actually fought - but they had to get active assistance (food, shelter, funds) from others. So maybe that's where the one third figure comes from.

552 A guerrilla can not survive long in the field without active support of the populace.

It'll be the person next door. A "cell" of one that avoids direct confrontation and contact and only does a couple of random acts of sabotage a year.

The most secure organization has only a single member who's plans will never be betrayed.

300M * 1/10th of 1% acting = 100k doing random acts of sabotage, or about 200k incidents/yr.

Even the smallest number of pissed off people, acting in small ways, very infrequently, would be draining.

570 @Tammy, if it's pneumonia, don't mess around with it. My husband got sick with it in 2008, was too stubborn to go to the doctor and it took me too long to realize what he had. I lost him two weeks later.

If it's an upper respiratory infection or bronchitis (which is what I have now), get some mullein. It's an herb that grows wild in a lot of locations. It was used in herbal cigarettes for asthma and is a specific for clearing up lung infections. You can make tea out of it or smoke it. It's definitely cleared up my lungs better than the meds that the doctors gave me.

bronchitis is nothing to horse around with. It comes in both viral and bacterial form and the bacterial form can truly kick your ass. It was, however, the viral form which moved from my lungs and attacked my heart.

That Mosin thing...is not spam, is absolute truth. I took my Mosin out hunting and didn't have to shoot it, I could stab the deer with the bayonet from my deerstand. Or at least I could have, if I had actually seen any deer. Of course I would have been shooting down towards the ground, so I had to bring climbing gear so I could climb down into the canyon that the bullet carved out to get the deer.

I went to their website and they are supposed to be sending me some samples. Signed up for it in early December, they said I should get it in the middle of January. They do call you before they will send anything to you.

When the replacement refs muffed the call in the Packers-Seahawks game, I heard screaming all over the neighborhood. New Year's Eve - and there's not a peep?? Weird.

Perhaps all the trendy 20-somethings around here have suddenly realized they're screwed for life and have no reason to celebrate. Or maybe they're too stoned to cheer.

Any of you familiar with the Wise Company? They sell emergency food

provisions - stuff that will keep for 25 years (longer than MRE's - of

course they must be like 50% chemicals and preservatives, but heck, if I

need emergency meals in 20 years, I won't care). Seem reasonably priced

and the buckets they sell would be easier to store in an apartment than

boxes full of canned goods....

I
went to their website and they are supposed to be sending me some
samples. Signed up for it in early December, they said I should get it
in the middle of January. They do call you before they will send
anything to you.
Some hunting and camping stores sell the #10 cans of
freeze dried stuff that has a 25 year shelf life. Also if there is a RV
type superstore in your area, they may have some.

725 I've done some research on Wise, Mountain Home, and a few other survival ration companies.

Mountain seems to have the best tasting product, based on a few blog comments.

In all cases, check some basics:

- How many calories per serving, and how many servings per day are needed to provide 2000 calories? Frequently, the real answer is 6, not 3.

- Vitamin content. A,C,D,K and E are essential, but they can stay in the body for a while, and it can be months before deficiency becomes a problem. DO the research. Vitamin B, actually B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12 are all necessary, and they wash out in a day or so.

B9 (folate) prevents certain birth defects ... it's real important. B12 is only available from meat; it cannot be obtained from plants.


In all seriousness, stocking canned / pickled foods (beans, veggies, cabbage &: kraut) and sacks of oats, lentils and enriched rice (watch the brown rice, it will go rancid), and rotating through the stock, might be a much better plan.

Remember, radically changing dietary plans can affect your health, and sometimes more than just mildly or for a day or two.

BTW - you'd think New Year's Eve, a time of celebration and hopeful expectation would be the one night black folk would stop bitchin' about the White Man keeping them down.

Nope:

For many African American Christians, New Year’s Eve is a time to gather in “Watch Night” services commemorating their ancestors’ vigil150 years ago over whether President Lincoln would sign the Emancipation Proclamation. Because Lincoln did sign it on Jan. 1, 1863, declaring all slaves in confederate states “forever free,” the evening became a time of prayer, song, dance and celebration, Whitlock said.

“For us, it’s about the birth of freedom in 1863,” said Rev. Whitlock, pastor of Christ Our Redeemer Church, an African Methodist Episcopal congregation in Irvine. “And in 2013, we shall seek freedom from oppression and inner conflicts.”

Putting a modern twist on the freedom message, congregants will share stories of their liberation this year from alcoholism, drug abuse, poverty, poor health and other crippling conditions, Whitlock said.

752 The Emancipation Proclamation was a cynical act if there ever was one. It sounded lofty but the act didn't free one slave. It only applied to the Confederate states who said that if the Union was going to write laws for them, they'd have to do it by beating them in the Civil War.

However, not all slave states were in the Confederacy. Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky, and Missouri were Union states which still legally sanctioned slavery. The Emancipation Proclamation exempted those four states to keep them in the Union, and anyone who can read a map would know why it was vital that they did not defect.

The Emancipation Proclamation sure sounded moral and just, with lofty goals, but it didn't free any slaves.

And in a bizarre convolution of reality, they'll be worshiping BHO, who has more in common with Indonesians and Muslims than he does with them -- while ignoring the fact that Abraham Lincoln was a Republican, Martin Luther King was a Republican, the Civil Rights Bill of 1964 was filibustered by 18 Democrats (and one Republican), the KKK was run by Democrats and the longest running Senator of the United States was a Democrat who once was Grand Kleegle in the KKK. But Republicans -- who support candidates like Allen West and Herman Cain -- are tagged by the MSM as "racist", while Dems who say that darker-hued individuals can't make it in the world without government assistance are deemed "caring".

I checked Wiki for this info ... then I checked labels on actual products on the shelves at my local store.

Many canned veggies, beans, chili, fruit and meat are good for 2-3 years ... they taste acceptable for that long. Longer ... I don't know ... possibly another year or two, if ALWAYS stored in a cool (Always under about 76deg F), dark, dry place.

Check the can you are looking at to see how much longer it will last.

Canned food seems to come, usually pre-cooked, in 3-1/2 servings per can. Figure out how to eat all of that can in one day. Then figure out how to do it when there is no refrigeration.

Assuming that a serving is 3.5 ounces (100 grams).

Malt-o-Meal: 15-25% of B1,2,3,5 and 100% of B9
Rolled oats: 20% of these vitamins.

Pickled red cabbage: 41% C, 45% Vitamin K. Sauerkraut: only 18% C.
Canned spinach: 50% A, 49% B9, 34% C, 13% E, 460% K. This looks like a winner. Learn to like it.

Beans (Black, Red, Pinto, ...) have 16% B5, 90% B9, and 24g of protein. Canned beans are almost always pre-cooked, but beans off the vine MUST BE COOKED. They are mildly poisonous; usually, they'll just clean your digestive tract.

Lentils: Lots of vitamins, protein and calories.

Add enriched rice (not puffed) for a complete protein source. Enriched rice. Enriched rice. Enriched rice.

Watch brown rice; it's more nutritious, but it can go rancid quickly (20 days?). I read this factoid here at Ace not too long ago.

Canned Chili: 16g protein. Beans add some vitamins, protein and calories.

Canned Beef. The stuff I can get is either from Argentina or Brazil. Probably not the best cuts, but grilling should fix any problems. 16g protein, and Vitamin B12.

Leafy greens seem to not can well (spinach excepted). Broccoli is not canned, the results are ... too weird. Fresh Kale, Collard Greens, Swiss chard, Romaine lettuce (waste no time on Iceberg), turnips, broccoli cauliflower deliver lots of B (but they vary) and many cancer-fighting compounds.

Onions add taste, little else. Leeks are better.

Make life simpler and stock up on vitamins. 500% of B is ok, but 100% of all of the B vitamins is much better, as the 500% is not retained 5x longer ... maybe 2x. Make certain to get all B, and A,C,D,E and K, plus minerals.

Then the issues become protein and calories, and how long this will all last.

Michael Moore - Oscar and Emmy-winning director

4. Stop saying, "I support the troops." I don't. I used to. I understand why so many enlisted after 9/11. Sadly, many of them were then trapped and sent off to invade Iraq. I felt for all of them. I understood those who joined because of a lousy economy. But at some point all individuals must answer for their actions, and now that we know our military leaders do things that have nothing to do with defending our lives, why would anyone sign up for this rogue organization?

791 Arbalest, you bring up a good point -- you should have a decent stockpile of Vitamins A, B (all types), C, D (if you have poor sunshine access), and E.

These things help keep you healthy. Ya know, the ultimate end age for humans hasn't changed much over the last two thousand years; what has changed is the average age of useful life. Vitamins play an important role in gettin' there mostly healthy.

30 days may be too short. I'm searching for the discussion; it was within the last 2 years. I recall that part of the discussion was about rolled oats keeping for 20 years, when unopened and properly stored



GnuBreed: following that point, if you have a complete supply of 100% A,C,D,K and the various B vitamins, and the various minerals (i.e., a tablet will all these things), then all you need is protein and calories (implicitly, fiber will be included or easily obtainable).

With enough of these multi-vitamins, 7 per week, for normal nutrition, but figure 4 per week, to stretch things, 500 pills, per person in your family / team / group allows you to use time as a weapon ... wait for others to develop scurvy ,ricketts, beri-beri, pellagra, etc., then act.

832 Partially found it, for anyone who is interested:

[begin]
In general, it's better not to pre-soak beans. It makes the skins tough.

First time cooking beans? Heh, cooking the red beans and rice [ http://tinyurl.com/b42wl ], you know to prepare them separately before combining with the spices.


...

[end]


There was a discussion on preparing beans ...


[Continuing]
For our healthier morons who are doing the same, keep in mind that brown rice can go rancid after a while. It needs to be refrigerated.

Counter intuitive? Explain and source. Why would processed, refined white rice not require refrigeration unless in the processing the grains are chemically altered with preservatives? What's with the outer protective shell of the grain going rancid after a while? Did you store your rice air tight?

Posted by: Plateau Plato at February 12, 2011 11:17 AM (H+LJc)


The outer protective shell of brown rice contains oil. Came as a surprise to me too. IIRC I read it on a "provident living" website that detailed food storage methods/shelf life. Rolled oats (the round container with "Bar" on the front) lasts for 30 years. Who knew?
[end]

The problem is that this is all I saved. I have no link,so I don't know who provided the answer to "Plateau Plato", or even who "Plateau Plato" is/was.

Posted by: rickl at January 01, 2013 02:46 AM (sdi6R)


On our trip to Saint Petersburg, Russia, our hotel had a breakfast buffet that included porridge. It wasn't just grains in water, there was like a stick of butter involved.....wasn't half bad, actually.

In St. P, it's important to stock up on breakfast because of the weird body effects. You'll visit a museum for some hours and come out not knowing what time it is -- and the sun will say "it's 2-ish in the afternoon" (when it's really 5:30).....but it lies. There can be 20+ hours of sunlight, and it could be almost dinnertime, but your body will try to put it off because of the time it's reading from the sun.

2012 was a mixed bag. I got a better job, met some cool people, but then we got TFG for another four years.

My resolutions for 2013:

Be prepared for an emergency (food storage).
Learn to shoot and get a weapon for defense.
Find a Moronette in my area (hey, a guy can dream, eh?)

Thanks to Ace and the cob-loggers for helping me stay just this side of sane. May we all have the strength to overcome whatever 2013 throws at us.

Everything since January 2009 has been stop gap. Remember when this country had budgets. We ignored and mocked them but at least we pretended to know where the money was going to go and how much.

It's like when the parents drop the Santa Claus pretense but in this case the children have gotten less mature and believe even greater nonsense.

The first problem of course is that she never read any of the source material, and therefore makes sweeping generalizations that are factually incorrect. Layers and all, I know right?

The second problem is that even if she had read the material before opining, she obviously doesn't understand the type of story being told and for whom it was written, so her opinion is ultimately worthless. Naturally Time saw fit to prominently feature her unfounded bitch session in their poorly conceived, poorly executed, amateurish on-line webzine.

I guess a black king or two and a few mid-sexchange trannies might have spiced things up a bit, but I frankly don't remember a lot of those in the western European histories upon which Middle Earth was loosely based, and in any event is there absolutely nothing today's victim group hustlers won't try to ruin with their shallow, false-narrative ankle-biting?

I've gotten nothing but respectful, sharp replies that lead me to believe that I have done a good job at least pointing out some issues that could effect little people like me in AZ.

As many votes as he has taken, that I disagree with, I just really respected the guy.

I was upset to learn that he was retiring.

Now, I get it.

Especially after DeMint's bailing...

As much as anybody knows how to be an effective Senator, I'd guess he does.

932 Just watched the first episode of an anime comedy, Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi.

Ookami is a very athletic girl who is part of a student club that runs a sort of bank. The capital is personal troubles. To get a loan of assistance with your problems you take a debt that can be expunged by helping somebody else for the bank. This gives Ookami many opportunities to beat the crap out of thugs with her boxing gloves that leaves smiling kitty patterns embossed on her victim's faces.

Like many highly athletic women, Ookami has a very, shall we say, slender build, and the narrator takes every opportunity to point this out. Which in turn reveals that Ookami can hear the narrator and would beat her senseless given the chance. Her closest friend is the same age but looks like a child and thus is also lacking in certain characteristics. In one bath house scene the narrator apologizes for the resulting inadequacy of the fan service and incurs the ire of both girls.

Very silly.

There were several 'strong female characters' in Tolkein's writings.

But The Hobbit, as Ace mentioned in his review...is a lark, and as such is meant to be viewed separately from the other stories.
Were the film makers supposed to rewrite the basic story line to include characters that didn't exist in the original?

Oh wait.
In the interest of modern PC bullshit, I guess the answer to that is...'yes'.

The reason I'm asking is that I just spent a few days in the hospital and will have to go through some pretty serious surgery and I am being exposed to what is happening in the health care world ..and it ain't fucking pretty.

I have had issues with being able to get time with various specialists. It's the holiday season and many of the docs are off...but they did not go anywhere. I found out there all in the processes of moving their offices..and preparing for the changes of their practices having been bought out just prior to the new year and all the OgabeCare rules being implemented.

Many of them are being frank with me and saying that OgabeCare is really fucking everything up.

There will be few private practices in the future. Instead there will be a few corporate healthcare delivery entities that will be easier to control.

The problem with digital record keeping for doctors is the HIPAA laws are an impenetrable nightmare. I don't know of a single convalescent hospital of the dozens I've done IT work for that could pass an audit.

Dentists have it a bit easier if only because one company is the 800 pound gorilla of dental practice management packages. Being certified to support Dentrix is very lucrative. We looked into it after doing work for several practices. You have to spend several weeks attending classes at their HQ near Salt Lake City, UT. But first you have to get the approval of the guy who controls sales in your region and then pay about two grand for the privilege. We got the impression that som incumbent would have to die or retire before we'd be given consideration.

986 Albie, my sister works as a surgical nurse at a large hospital here. I have a good friend who is in middle administration at the same hospital. Here is what I know:

Hospital is working furiously to establish outpatient care for recovering patients so they won't have to be readmitted. (Government will penalize or not pay for patients readmitted with same condition.)

Surgical staff is overworked. Hard to get days off, schedule changes, etc. As nurses retire they are being replaced with some techs due to lower pay rate.

My doctors (BP and ortho) have joined their practices to large corporations. The offices are very large and you are run through like cattle, often not seeing a doc but a nurse practitioner or medical assistant.

It's going to get worse, so I would recommend getting whatever you need done as soon as possible. I think things are pretty much the same all over the country.

994 If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. However, you are totally fucked if you need a new doctor.

995 Albie, no one is reporting on it because of the following:

1. It makes Obamacare look bad
2. Probably some of the corporations are owned by dems
3. Many in the news media (in fact most, I would say) do not understand the medical professions in any way.

Probably when doctors are all in corporations (due to trying to keep practicing without going bankrupt) the press will suddenly develop an interest in "corporate medicine" and demonize them.

Posted by: Butters at January 01, 2013 08:11 AM (NIZHJ)

1002 Good morning, ‘rons and ‘ronettes. The little pups got me up, so I dashed off a post for the headline thread. Except there is no headline thread. Which I should have figured. So here it is as a late addition to the overnight thread:

Today, for many, is a day to cradle your throbbing head and moan, “never again!” So here are a couple of drinking stories to go with your asparagus, Bloody Mary, ibuprofen or whatever helps get rid of that hangover:


After Camelot, Richard Harris’s film career was at its peak. So was his drinking. During an interview, he boasted that whenever he was in New York, he would make his way to a particular bar; if Vinny, the regular barman, was on shift when Harris walked in, he would make the star six double vodkas. The interviewer was unimpressed, and called it a “bullshit story.”Harris’ face turned red with rage. “Right, then, let’s go,” he ordered. The two got into a taxi and drove to Third Avenue and the bar in question (whose name, sadly, I don’t know). As soon as Harris walked through the door, he caught the barman’s eye: “Vinny, my usual.” By the time the two sat down, six double vodkas were lined up on the bar.


Another legendary drinker – to the in-crowd of Hollywood – was Dr. Harry Wilson Martin, the husband of gossip columnist Louella Parsons. His specialty was venereal disease, and he served as the head of Twentieth Century-Fox’s medical department. Because of his position, Louella had private lines to a number of medical labs, particularly the ones who confirmed or denied pregnancies; very often, she knew an actress was pregnant before the girl herself knew.

Both “Lolly” and “Docky” threw down the booze at any opportunity. At one party, Martin drank so much he passed out on the floor and lay there in a drunken stupor while other guests stepped over him. When the host tried to help the stricken medico to his feet, Parsons slurred, “Let Docky alone. He has to operate in the morning.”


And then there’s the story of screenwriter Joseph Mankiewicz, who, loaded to the gills at a dinner party, did a Poppy Bush. “It’s all right,” he stuttered to the shocked hostess, “the white wine came up with the fish.”

And so here we go into 2013. Thanks for letting me tell a few stories and thanks for the knowledge and entertainment you all provide. It seems as though AoS is becoming the only sane place on the web. Long life and a happy year to you all.

I read a couple of weeks ago about how pregnant women are having their babies aborted, by mistake, because the NHI pregnancy tests are so much less sensitive than OTC tests that they are showing the babies to be dead in the womb. It's happening several hundred times a year.

This is not a "tough case"....

Douchebag lawyer has no standing to sue (on behalf of client) the state of CT.

Period.

It's NOT a "tough case"!

From what we have been told, Sandy Hook Elementary practiced all security measures mandated by the state of CT, some of those were instrumental in the saving of innocent lives.

I can't imagine what sort of horror it might be to one of those babies who made it out and heard and saw terrible things.

I also cannot imagine the horror and insane grief of those parents of such young children.

1064 First three Firefox books are available to download for free on Google books.

went to a doctor, which cost me $35 co-pay. Then they prescribed $79 in meds (my insurance didn't cover one). That was basically my Christmas bonus from work, so I'm a little ticked off that it didn't help much. People are going to need to learn more about caring for themselves, as the doctors sure aren't going to do it.
