The Morning Report - 10/14/19

bidetplagi.jpg

Good morning kids. Happy Columbus Day. Start of a new week and the top stories continue to be the Bidet Ukraine and China scandals, the impeachment/non-impeachment madness and the situation with the Turkish invasion of Syria and its impact on the geo-politics as well as how it redounds on President Trump. More on that in a moment but back to the top, Hunter Bidet is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I've ever known in my life. His father, no slouch himself, as well as the Democrat Media Complex have reassured us, in response to President Trump casting aspersions otherwise. In fact, he's so utterly beyond reproach that he's stepping down from the board of directors of that Chi-Com investment firm just to prove Trump and all of us wrong. But not to worry; he's squirreled away millions of dollars made from his work, whatever that work actually entailed which no one, not even Hunter himself can define, nor is the Media even remotely curious to find out, so he'll be up to his eyeballs in cocaine and women's inner thighs with which to snort it, for the foreseeable future. Funny how despite all the allegations being unfounded and patently untrue (sarc) they do nonetheless concern the alleged leading candidate for the Democrat nomination and his son. Yet none of the others in that field have dared nor will dare use that as a line of attack against him. The reason being is that to do so would vindicate Trump and render null and void (at least to sane, thinking people), the rationale for impeachment. That said, it might yet happen if, say, Elizabeth Hekawi, Bernardo Sandersnista or any of the others who think they might still have a shot - so, 15 or 16 people right there - feel they can use it to boost their chances. But that would be a neat trick, that is to both attack Bidet without rendering the attacks on Trump for the same crimes null and void. Pass the popcorn.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

6 I'm damn glad Trump is undoing (partially) Obama's crap of sending boots on the ground to that Syria mess. As of yesterday's link he is pulling all the troops from the Kurd area, not just the original 50. And the article I linked said he was probably going to pull them totally out and bring them home.

Brian Kilmeade over at @foxandfriends got it all wrong. We are not going into another war between people who have been fighting with each other for 200 years. Europe had a chance to get their ISIS prisoners, but didn't want the cost. "Let the USA pay," they said...

Kurds may be releasing some to get us involved. Easily recaptured by Turkey or European Nations from where many came, but they should move quickly. Big sanctions on Turkey coming! Do people really think we should go to war with NATO Member Turkey? Never ending wars will end!

The same people who got us into the Middle East mess are the people who most want to stay there!

45 Children and families are not entitled to "Sesame Street." Elmo is not a human right. But, as critics argued four years ago, there's something odd about a program developed specifically to boost low-income children keeping its content locked up for nine months, available only to kids whose parents can afford premium streaming.
Of course, that set-up is what keeps Sesame Street alive. And the show seems to be finding a way to ensure a substantial chunk of its content remains free.


The dirty secret about PBS programming is this: PBS doesn't produce (much/any?) of its own programming. Independent production companies, owned by the people who created each show (think: Bill Moyers, the group who crated Sesame Street). They then sell the completed shows to PBS. As a result, they do not own the content or the product licensing. The production companies re-sell it on CDs, streaming, etc.; none of those transactions make any money for PBS. Essentially PBS subsidizes these production companies/shows by running them for "free" on PBS, but gets no piece of the profit from any related sales.

THIS how it is possible that wildly popular, long-running show like Sesame Street, whose characters have been licensed up the wazoo in all sorts of kids products somehow can't afford to run the show w/out public funding. PBS never saw 1 cent of the money hade off of Tickle-Me Elmo toys, Cookie Monster Books, Big Bird emblazoned crib sheets, etc.

It is quite a racket. Had PBS actually negotiated a deal with the company that produces Sesame Street many decades ago it could afford to make episodes into the next century instead of having to sell it to HBO 4 years ago.

46 Consensus economists didnt turn much to analytic methods that focus on workers in particular industries and communities, which would have given a better picture of short-run trends.

In other words, we suck as economist. We play touchy, feely with policies and words so we do not have to do the maths.

I never fail to be absolutely amazed that the American people don't see the obvious. As with the MFM, the blatant bias is the very best you can say about them. They are so one-sided, so in the tank for Democrats, so unfair in their coverage, it's as obvious as living inside a blaring tuba. Yet so many still fall prey to their lies. It never dawns on them that, hey, this just doesn't seem right. Their full frontal propaganda assault on Trump and 2020 will have an effect, unfortunately. To what extent, who knows.

His work does make an impact even if we rarely see a major shake-up from it, such as him killing off ACORN (yeah, it was recreated). For example, the documents dropped by his Google insider went to the DoJ and they met with him. The impact of that action is yet to be seen. He's also building up an excellent team of whistleblowers to assist him with each new endeavors.

He's red-pilling people with each effort. Also, he has to be scaring these Lefty companies even if we don't see it. This is not the first time he's gone after CNN.

Sure, I'd love a huge splashy downfall of one of his targets, but us not seeing it doesn't mean his efforts are wasted, not at all.

Back before Steve Hayes went over to the dark side (I still can't figure that out; twitch your goatee if that Iranian fuck has threatened your family, Stevie) and the Weekly Standard was worth more than a bag of piss, he did an excellently researched story on LBJ's consigliere, Bill Moyers, and the cottage industry of "non profits" he's set up to bilk the taxpayers through producing dogshit programs that he'd move through them to up the price.

Erdogan made that threat several years ago ... except he was demanding to be let in the EU (opening his border) or he would unleash the migrant hordes. Even Merkel realized it would be suicide, and is still paying him off with a couple billion a year or so.


Just the other day I read someone bringing that up, that it is an ongoing and open blackmail. But the EU weenies pay it, and still get invaded (by other routes I guess). Suicide of The West.

I think the Whistle Blower exists in the same way that Russians fed information to Christopher Steel.

That is to say, The Steele Dossier was typed up by Sidney Blumenthal's using the same IBM Selectric typewriter that the TANG documents were typed up on.

And more than likely the Whistleblower complaint was concocted by the same group of people using elements of the CIA and Deep State.

81 Possible upside to Turkey-Kurd-Syria nonsense. It could be the end of NATO.



Luxembourg's foreign minister points out this morning that if the
Syrian army counterattacks against Turkey the NATO allies will be
obligated to come to Turkey's defense.



He called that premise otherworldly and suggests the coalition will fall apart.



Posted by: Bandersnatch at October 14, 2019 08:12 AM

NATO has outlived it's original purpose of a threat to Soviet Russia.


NATO's one and only threat no longer exists. It needs to be dissolved and done away with which is most likely going to be impossible because it was created by actual treaties and I don't think an exit ramp was built into it.

117 Some comments from last night's ONT on Windows updates causing problems....

Go search for 'windows 10 stig' to find the Security Technical Implementation Guide. There's one here:
https://stigviewer.com/stig/windows_10/
You have to be comfortable doing things in the registry, and you're best off learning how to use the policy manager (some fixes require that). BUT, some of the things you can figure out how to manage include updates. Some of the important ones include turning off remote management, Cortana, and such.

As to getting a root kit.... That *should* only be possible if you're running your windows as an administrator and not demanding approval every time it installs something. In which case, create an every day account without admin privileges, and NEVER ok installation of something unless you're certain it's clean.
OR you installed something thinking it was clean, and it wasn't.


But, please, do those two things to protect yourself: use an account withOUT elevated privileges, and use the STIGs to lock your computer down.

Like economics, history, the Constitution and everything else, you really are a dolt on geopolitics, aren't you?

The Kurds are not an ally in that a) they are a stateless people and b) were hired proxy guns to deal with ISIS - a wholly owned creation of Obama and company.

Plus, by extricating out of an area that has ZERO geopolitical importance to our national security, he lets four of our enemies go at each other while eating four scoops of OrangeManBad sherbet.

Now go down to the West Side Highway and start puckering your mouth and gaping your anus like a good little Lefty stooge, m'kay?

president's in both parties have ended treaties just by saying we are out. Obama started that and Trump gladly followed along. Specific to NATO

The North Atlantic Treaty
(that creates the NATO Alliance) Expires after 20 years but is self
renewing unless a signatory provides notice of denunciation in which
case that signatory would exit after one year. (Article 13)

Well not really. The Kurds as pseudo Allies existed long before Fredo. They are an unfortunate people condemned to live in a nasty neighborhood. Since everyone in the neighborhood hates them, and they hate them right back, they have always been a thorn in the side of the Syrians, Iraqies, Turks, and Iranians thus making them an Allie of the US and the West by virtue of "The enemy of my enemy is my Friend"

It's quite moving once you get past the stilted early-20th Century speechifying rhetoric.

Nobody pretended that Columbus "discovered" America, or that everyone prior to Columbus thought the world was round. It was all about following in the footsteps of Columbus, making a dangerous ocean crossing to the New World, being the "New Columbuses."

And the speech was very, very adamant on the importance of immigrants assimilating and learning the language, pronto. This was of the utmost priority.

I'll say something unsnide. I missed out on most of the Van Halen hoopla initially. But one evening I was taking my dog, Teddy, to the park in my car on a Sunday when kollidge radio stations are playing international dogshit and homo show tunes, so I had it on a classic crock station. This blown out live extended guitar intro came on that was just fascinating in its dexterity and using blown out skronky amp sounds to create something extremely inventive. Teddy was getting impatient but I told him to cool his jets. Finally it broke into "You Really Got Me" and by Roth's vocals I knew it was Eddie.

I've tried finding that cut on Spotify but everything is at least somewhat different. It's hard to believe that some generic run of the mill station would have something unique but who knows.

223 Schiff, by saying he may not need the actual testimony, has just given us the biggest "tell" of the entire operation. This was SUPPOSED to be a redo of Watergate, with an unknown "Deep Throat" who's identity wasn't going to be released for 30 years, and all the innuendo was going to lead to impeachment.

But now we already know that the WB was Ciamarella, that he was a Joe Biden Operative, and suddenly he's realized that if he testifies, he'll be confessing under oath to having committed several felonies involving classified information. So I have no doubt that his lawyers have strongly advised him to Plead the Fifth on *any* more questions involving this matter.

And now Schiff is stuck - he's got a huge national campaign going based on this, and his star "witness" has just turned his back on him and walked out. Everything from here on out is just scrambling to cover an operation that has collapsed.

If that were the case, would we be seeing this shit show from Schiff? He's trying to manufacture crimes worthy of articles of impeachment.

Democrats have wanted impeachment, but they've never really known how to make it happen. It's fascinating.

He takes Trump to task for saying we don't have troops in Syria, instead of saying we don't have them in the part Turkey is engaging (except the ones that got bracketed?) ... but imo Trump has to dumb it down for the average citizen ... and we may be leaning toward getting out of all of Syria.


Erdogan may close his border to the invading hordes, but other parts will keep invading till Europe decides it wants to survive, or until they send troops into Brussels to kill of the Eurocrats, the real enemy.

255 Trump has again obeyed Putin and thrown our allies the Kurds under the bus

Really JJ is this what you also think shoukd be done ?

Posted by: Kurt at October 14, 2019 08:32 AM (wp1MP)


First, getting out of Syria is not just something that Putin might want, but something a lot of Americans want. (BTW, we are NOT "getting out of Syria" atm.) Just because the crack dealer down the street likes chocolate cake does NOT mean we then have to give up chocolate cake.

- Second, "our allies the Kurds" is a bit ... Pollyanish. Some portions of them are our allies, yes. Some other portions are actual terrorists bombing malls in Turkey (though I haven't heard news about that in the last few years). And there's a big chunk in-between. Our alliance with the Kurds is based *entirely* on an alignment of goals where defeating Saddam and folks like AQ and IS is concerned. While there is a lot of noise made over them being much better than the other jerks in the ME, they are not an uniform bunch, and their values are not (in the main) ours.
- Third, no one ever promised them we would give them independence. And, in Syria, we weren't even there to protect them (though 'mission creep' changed that some). We were there to kill IS, ostensibly. Again, our goals happened to align, as IS had flooded into Kurdish territory in Iraq and Syria.
- Fourth, if JJ believes we should get out, then let him explain his position and you can argue with the reasoning involved, not with some strawman about "Putin is happy!"

Oh, that reminds me: GOPe connected Maricopa County Assessor arrested in AZ for illegal adoption ring, human trafficking. Friendly with Flake, McCain.

On Oct. 8, the Arizona Attorney General's Office announced Petersen had been indicted in an adoption fraud scheme that involves women from the Marshall Islands brought to the U.S. to give birth. Their babies then are adopted out to U.S. parents. . .

The Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes said Petersen recruited more than 40 pregnant women from the Marshall Islands over the past three years and transported them to Utah, where they were paid to give up their children for adoption in the U.S.
"The commercialization of children is illegal, and the commoditization of children is simply evil," he said.
Petersen is facing 11 felony charges in Utah related to human smuggling. . .

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of Arkansas detailed the activities of Petersen and his co-defendant there, Maki Takehisa. Authorities characterized their operation as a scheme to defraud and take advantage of Marshallese women and families to make quick money.

A 19-count indictment filed in U.S. District Court in the Western District of Arkansas charges Petersen and Takehisa with conspiracy to smuggle the women for private financial gain; aiding and abetting the smuggling; wire fraud; mail fraud; conspiracy to commit visa fraud; and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

307 If no one is prosecuted, I'll never vote again. I'll actively promote non voting. No wonder the Left has no fear. The right is infested with a level of cowardice not seen since the French in WWII. And make no mistake, the continued cowardice of the GOP NOW, is going to lead to a far worse conflict with a better armed enemy in the future.

The smart money is on the end of the republic. The end not just because the left wanted it so, but because the comfortable right felt they had too much to lose fighting for it. SHAME. May your Great grandchildren spit at your memory.

THE QUOTES OF THE DAY


Quote I

“Don’t imagine that the child knows his or her future identity at age three, or ten, for that matter,” “Flash-freezing a child’s development through the introduction of drugs — pre-puberty, on and so on — seems to me, should be recognizably, not just wrong, but horrific.” Camille Paglia


Quote II

He’s got some responsibility, but not all. Right and wrong is wrong, that was wrong for that clerk to shoot my brother in the chest. Yes, he’s robbing them. Oh, well! Call the police, that’s what you’re supposed to do. You’re not supposed to take matters into your own hands.Sister of a Genius Award Winner. H/T Bitter Clinger


Quote III

“This is not decay. This is organized destruction. Secularists and their allies have marshaled all the forces of mass communication, popular culture, the entertainment industry, and academia in an unremitting assault on religion & traditional values.” Attorney General William Barr


Quote IV


This is why the NBA, in the person of its severely alien-looking head honcho Adam Silver—who looks like Jiminy Cricket had sex with an AIDS-infected bagel, and they had a baby—recently bowed and apologized to China. Taki's Magazine


Quote V

“I think a lot of Americans see the $50,000 a month Hunter Biden was making and it doesn’t pass the smell test. I think most people do think there is corruption involved with Hunter Biden. I hope we do get to the bottom of that.”Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)

It appears that social media will be around for quite some time. Parents and teachers ought to teach their youngsters participating on social media has consequences. Sometimes it is just best to keep your mouth shut and your fingers off a keyboard.

The girl who created a viral TikTok video exposing how Panera makes its mac and cheese is going viral again–this time for tweeting that she lost her job because of it.

“I lost my job for this video,” Twitter user @BriiRamirezz, who goes by @briannaraelenee on TikTok, responded to @UberFacts tweet of the clip.

It looks like Face Time, Skype and Webinars are about to become very popular in Sweden.

FLIGHT-SHAMING CATCHING ON IN EUROPE
There are a number of things that climate activists don’t want the rest of us to do, like eating meat and flying on airplanes. They seem to have decided that discouraging flying is a better bet than compulsory vegetarianism, so several European countries are moving in that direction.

In Sweden, the government “is considering making it mandatory for travel companies to declare the climate impact of their long-haul trips.”

The companies should inform customers of the climate impact of long-haul trips when advertising or selling tickets, the government said on Friday.

If voting for Trump doesn't make me a racist. Perhaps my enjoyment of Sponge Bob Square Pants confirms your deepest fears. Good fvcking grief.

professor at the University of Washington wrote an academic article denouncing SpongeBob Squarepants as “violent,” “racist,” and “insidious.”

Yes, really.

Professor Holly Barker’s tirade against the yellow cartoon character was published by an academic journal called The Contemporary Pacific: A Journal of Island Affairs.

In it, Barker argues that the show’s fictional location of Bikini Bottom is unfair because it is based on the nonfictional Bikini Atoll, a coral reef in the Marshall Islands used by the U.S. military for nuclear testing during the Cold War.

“The indigenous people of the area were relocated during the testing, which eventually rendered the area uninhabitable due to residual radiation,” writes Celine Ryan. “Barker finds it unjust that SpongeBob and his pals be allowed to “occupy” the area when the nonfictional indigenous people of the area do not have the option to return to their homeland.”


Taxpayers are employing this dingbat.

Cash money talks and digitizing walks straight into the court room.

In my world, the virtual hasn't quite taken over the physical.

Tossing everything into a cloud doesn't necessarily engender quite the same sense of security and well-being as seeing, holding, and believing.

Today's witness is Jemima Kelly.

She's a writer for The Financial Times. Please don't let any personal thoughts about that get in the way of her story.

You see, she just experienced a little technological nightmare.

A cheery digital convert, she admits she often leaves the house without her wallet. But surely not without her iPhone.

Apple Pay is, after all, a contemporary joy. It's right up there with Tinder in its ability to make your life easier.

Kelly, indeed, hops on London buses and uses Apple Pay to tap her payment instead of buying a ticket the old-fashioned way.

Which, as she cheerily described, is easy unless a ticket inspector wanders by. Just after your iPhone's battery has died.

She couldn't prove that she'd paid, but gave her personal details and assumed there'd be a record of her probity on the transportation company's computers.

But then she was charged with, well, not providing proof of payment. Charged as in would be forced to go to court and to plead guilty or not guilty within 21 days.

A little draconian, you might think. Yes, the Brits look and act like nice people, but it's wise to remember that London seems to have more surveillance cameras than Amazon's Ring.

Should there be compulsory school attendance? The case against it.

We should always be leery of laws passed “for our own good,” as if the state knows better. The history of compulsory schooling statutes is rife with paternalism, triggered by anti-immigrant sentiments in the mid-nineteenth century and fueled by a desire to shape people into a standard mold.

History books detailing the “common school movement” and the push for universal, compulsory schooling perpetuate the myths that Americans were illiterate prior to mass schooling, that there were limited education options available, and that mandating school attendance under a legal threat of force was the surest way toward equality.

BYOB if you are planning on attending the Schild und Schwert (Shield and Sword) Festival in the town of Ostritz, Saxony

Law enforcement officials and citizens united to empty a German town’s supply of beer ahead of a music festival planned for this past weekend, over concerns that alcohol could increase the risk of violence among neo-Nazi attendees expected to arrive. With the support of a court-imposed alcohol ban, police successfully confiscated over 1,162 gallons of beer.

Around 600 people flocked to the Schild und Schwert (Shield and Sword) Festival in the town of Ostritz, Saxony, for the event that began on Friday, Newsweek reports. Locals, however, were prepared with a plan of their own.

Gullible much? Feds hit GirlsDoPorn owners with criminal sex trafficking charges

Federal prosecutors have charged three men and a woman with sex trafficking charges for operating the popular porn site GirlsDoPorn. At least 22 women featured on the site have sued the site's owners, charging that the pornographers used lies and coercion to gain their participation.

The 22 women said they responded to ads for clothed modeling gigs. When they were asked to shoot porn instead, they initially resisted. But they went along with it after the company assured them that their videos would only be sold on DVD to customers outside the United States and would not be posted online. That turned out to be a lie, as their videos wound up on GirlsDoPorn, a website with plenty of American viewers.


"I was in a state of panic when I first found out," one of the alleged victims testified in court. "I couldn't believe it. I still can't believe it."

How easy is it for a middle aged white woman to buy fentanyl on the streets of San Francisco? Pretty damn easy, just ask Heather Macdonald.

Heather Mac Donald has written one of the most important essays on homelessness in recent memory for City Journal. In it, she argues that we’ve misunderstood the homelessness problem as a problem of poverty when it is, in reality, a problem of family breakdown and the erosion of social norms. While I don’t agree with all of what she’s written, I admire her fieldwork. She interviewed homeless people in San Francisco and even bought fentanyl, the synthetic opiate that resulted in over 17,000 drug overdose deaths in the United States last year, to investigate how easy it was. Such fieldwork is rarer than it should be among journalists and advocates alike. I thought her contribution to the growing debate over homelessness, particularly in California but nationally and globally as well, was so important, I requested a telephone interview for Quillette. It has been edited for length.

Any hope of working things out with the other side seem to fade further and further away.

A Democrat member of the Minnesota House of Representatives was among the far-left riffraff that harassed and intimidated Trump supporters as they left the Trump rally in Minneapolis Thursday night. Rep. Aisha Gomez (DFL) was seen consorting with a member of the antifa mob as he hurled profanities at Republicans as they drove by.

Hundreds of leftists gathered outside of the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis to scream at Trump’s supporters and tell them to go home.

Case II of things aren't going to turn out well.

Democrats like Hillary Clinton demonstrated this with her description of a good portion of Americans as “deplorables.”

Soledad O’Brien, who used to work for CNN, Al Jazeera and who has a show for Hearst Television, has now picked up on that theme, encouraging a discussion of how not just that President Donald Trump is a “racist” but his supporters are also “trash.”


That's Mr. Trash to you, Bitch.

A-double-felony.png

A triple play in California?

If you're a Californian, the days of travel-size shampoo, conditioner, and soap bottles seen in hotels are nearing an end. Come January 1, 2023, they'll be illegal.

Governor Gavin Newsom signed Assembly Bill 1162 on Wednesday, sunsetting the small toiletry containers that some say are a noxious waste of single-use plastics. Establishments with more than 50 rooms must comply by 2023, while those with less than 50 rooms have until January 1, 2024.

A fine of $500 dollars will be assessed for the first violation and will increase to $2,000 for subsequent infractions. The law stipulates that a local agency may conduct inspections to ensure compliance.

Victoria's Secret was always known for stunning models. Not so much anymore. At least Lena Dunham isn't modeling. Yet.

Victoria’s Secret has been desperately trying to cling to relevance in this era of mall closure around the world. It turns out that poorly-made, overpriced underwear isn’t all that attractive when it’s not next to the Orange Julius you’re going to stop at on your weekly shopping trip.

One recent criticism of the brand is that all their models are attractive, which is bad now because we want inspiring stories about trans runway models with no legs protesting the war on drugs or whatever. So Victoria’s Secret has hired their first size 14 model, Ali Tate Carter.

A 5-year-old boy in Pennsylvania is using his birthday wish to ask for thousands of toys that he can donate to the children's hospital that helped save him from cancer.

Weston Newsanger was treated at Penn State Children’s Hospital for rhabdomyosarcoma after his diagnosis in 2016.

Now marking two-years cancer-free, Weston decided to do something special for his birthday.

"I want to get Play-Doh and dinosaurs for the children of the hospital," he told his mom, Amy.

Over the past several weeks his family collected over 1,200 containers of Play-Doh, over 1,000 dinosaurs and hundreds of other toys for the children.

MIL Update: The good news is that she's scheduled for ankle surgery (both were broken in the accident, the maximum number available).

/sigh

So the Trauma NP comes in today and says "M, when you got here we noticed a wound on/in your chest that we initially thought was accident-related. But it's acting strangely for that, have you had it a while?"

MIL: Yes, about a year.

(Oy)

Trauma NP: Did you discuss this with your doc?

MIL: No, it just didn't seem very important.

(Me looking at mrs ibguy: what's the name of that river in Egypt?)

Trauma NP: Well, we got your records and you had a mammogram last year that came back fine, but we did an ultra-sound on this and there's a high suspicion that it's breast cancer.

MIL: Oh.

(Me to mrs ibguy: oh, *sh*t*).

So they're going to do a biopsy tomorrow to confirm, but we're not optimistic.

Also: T (boyfriend) appears to be sliding. Yesterday and today his family has waved us off when we stopped by (he's about 6 doors away in the ICU).

ALL prayers welcome for Marilyn and Tom.

And I've never quite understood why it was ever a federal problem, other than as an opportunity to slosh federal gravy through the blue state corruption sluices.

70 Willowed from the prior thread:

Wall of text alert!

Searching through old texts got me to wanting to dig this one up. A good, collaborative effort from the horde. This is Buzzion's collection of the various posts from the mid morning thread the next day:

210 From the Don Lemon thread last night I compiled the posts of several morons and put it into one and put it on the ONT. But in case anyone missed it I present to you MORONS ON PARADE!

Now passing the reviewing stand, I don't know these people. Anyone in the booth? The program says "Ace of Spades HQ Blog Kazoo and Harmonica Marching Mand", but they don't seem to be marching, and it isn't much of a formation. Can't tell what they are playing but you have to admire their enthusiasm, especially the kazoo section. They are playing their hearts out.

Are they really in the parade? or have they infiltrated the event? Anyone know.

Wait, here comes security now. It looks like the band is forming up into a symbol.. wait... ok, no, we can't show you that on camera. Security is trying to get control off... there is fire! There is fire coming from the bagpipe sections, look out.... oh the humanity people are on fire!

What? Fire eaters? Spitting flaming vodka? Seriously? The flames have driven security back. Now the have unfurled a pirate flag. Who are these people?

Wait, they are getting out crossbows and longbows, and are starting to skuffle amongst themselves.

I heard one of them yell "Shit just got real."

Wait, I just heard another one yell:

IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE THINGS WERE ALREADY GETTING OUT OF HAND!


"Some of them seem to have donned Confederate uniforms, while others are wearing Union blue."


One of them just shouted 'Messenger Bags are gayer than Crocs' for some reason.


Another just yelled in response:

"I saw Messenger Bags open for the Green Crocs at the Pink Flamingo in 1986!"

'All the while there's a lone, naked, fat man sitting on a White Ottoman to the very left of the stage.

Is his inclusion symbolic?

Your guess is as good as mine, Bill.'

Wait, standing next to the man on the ottoman is another man... is he dressed as a dildo?! Orange, with jagged brown stripes across the front? What the f*ck is that!?!

I got nothing, Bill.

"Wait now someone is walking around passing out pudding cups. And they're all opening them, but I don't see any spoons. What are they...

Oh, God no. Cut to commercial! Cut to commercial!"

Now... they are setting fire to a skull (what did they cover it with?) and another is dressed like a robot and he is humping the air!

It's a complete madhouse down here. We need to get the national guard down here!

98 So, the good news is that the Antifa person killed by an SUV near Portland's Antifa bar on Friday is not going to be the next Charlottesville - right-wingers had nothing to do with it.

The actual truth is a lot stranger, and has a lot for the cops to unravel.

The apparent chronology is:

1) Antifa-dude and his two friends leave the Antifa bar at closing (midnight), and walk a couple of minutes away from the bar.
2) Antifa-dude gets hit and seriously injured by an SUV.
3) The dude's two Antifa friends pull out handguns, and start blasting away at the SUV.
4) The SUV crashes into the adjacent building (Oregon Democratic Party headquarters, ironically). The driver flees.
5) The two friends toss Antifa-dude into the back of a car, and drive to a hospital. The cops briefly detain the two friends, and then release them. The guy dies soon after getting to the hospital.

Despite having the SUV, the cops haven't been able to find the driver, who is probably on his way to California or Mexico by now.

It is still unknown whether there was any interaction between the Antifa people and the SUV driver prior to the incident, and whether the Antifa people opened fire prior to or after the SUV hit the guy. I'm sure they had valid Oregon Concealed Handgun Licenses. /s

The two "friends" possibly contributed to the guy's death - probably out of a desire to avoid contact with the authorities, they didn't call for an ambulance, but used their car to get to the hospital. Moving severe trauma cases when you don't know what you are doing is a major no-no.

99 Had my hipster 30-something pothead 30 something nephew and his live-in girlfriend, a 20 something artist with a nose ring, over for dinner - and had a great time. I found out that my pothead nephew and his girlfriend absolutely hate PC, make fun of SJWs, and didn't throw up when I said I voted for Trump. I explained why, and they nodded instead of calling me a Nazi. My nephew told me he definitely wants to read more about Douglas Murray and Jordan Peterson.

I found them much more open to political debate than my boomer yellow Dog Dem brothers. It gives me hope for the future.

I think the Whistle Blower exists in the same way that Russians fed information to Christopher Steel.

The Steele Dossier was typed up by Sidney Blumenthal's using the same IBM Selectric typewriter that the TANG documents were typed up on.

And more than likely the Whistleblower complaint was concocted by the same group of people using elements of the CIA and Deep State.

120 NBA Coach Steve Kerr.

*censored*

*censored*


Fun Facts: Steve's father, Malcom, was a professor in Beriut, Lebanon, where Steve was born in '65. When Steve was 18 and in college at ASU, his father, a professor teaching at American University in Beruit, and later became it's president, was murdered by Islamic Jihad. He said the incident was very traumatic.

Steve's grandfather Stanley was a former Baptist minister who relocated in Lebanon after serving to run a charity after WWI, to relocate people from the Armenian massacre. The Armenian massacre killed over 1.5 million people, mostly starved, shot or stabbed.

One would think that having been exposed to such lawlessness and slaughter of innocent people, Steve would have enough personal history and knowledge not to stand up for the Communist Chinese. Since 1949, the Chi-Comms have slaughtered around 70 million people, many just like Steve's dad who was shot in the back of the head by government killers.

One would be wrong.

*censored*

*censored*


I publicly thanked Howard Schultz last week for selling the Sonics and ridding Seattle of the NBA. The $7 billlion NBA is a tool of $40 billion NIKE. The NBA is a sales tool for NIKE, which answer to, and cover for, the Chi-Comms. Steve also openly attacked and slandered our current President, while in said Commieland.

121 Situs inversus - there's a code for that.


ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code Q89.3
Situs inversus
Complete situs inversus with dextrocardia; Kartagener syndrome


Fun Facts:

Not all people with situs inversus have Kartagener syndrome, but those who do often have chronic lung problems and (if male) infertility due to swimmers not having any propulsion. Both the lung disease and the infertility are due to immotile cilia. Cilia are the little hairlike structures that line your airways and "sweep" mucus and debris up and out of the lungs. These same hairlike structures give sperm the wiggling tail that propels them in search of an egg to fertilize.

That is all.

They're not conservatives, but they want very much to do what's right and, most importantly, to hear all sides. And they know the Left won't let them do that. So I steered them to people I think are wise and will impart some wisdom and they were happy for the suggestions. I think - hope - that many more younger people are like them. They've seen the nastiest of SJWs and their common sense rejects them - but they don't know where to go from there.

Before all this came out, the Antifa owner of the Antifa bar announced he hadn't seen Antifa-guy in the bar on Friday (he was a regular, of course), but that he had left the bar at 11, an hour before closing.

At the time, I thought: "My, it sure sounds as if the owner is trying to establish an alibi."

I wonder what else was going on that evening.

I bet having homicide deceives wandering around asking a lot of questions is not a happy time for Antifa-types.

If the individual was born after about the early 1980's or so they quite likely would have had an arterial switch operation in the first few days after being born and had a reasonable chance to live a fairly normal life.

Prior to that the only surgeries for TGA were palliative, allowing survival, but with impaired ventricular function over time.

They're not conservatives, but they want very much to do what's right and, most importantly, to hear all sides. And they know the Left won't let them do that. So I steered them to people I think are wise and will impart some wisdom and they were happy for the suggestions. I think - hope - that many more younger people are like them. They've seen the nastiest of SJWs and their common sense rejects them - but they don't know where to go from there.

Is the thermostat getting power? Usually they get fed 24 volts from a transformer located near the furnace. Sometimes, there is a switch to turn the furnace off, and that will kill power to the thermostat, too.

Check the breakers in your service panel, and make sure that none are in the "off" position that are not supposed to be.

You don't understand. All the thermostat does (usually) is complete the circuit to the furnace.* (Think light switch.) If you short the circuit AT THE FURNACE, it will fire up if the furnace is OK.

* You can realize this is you look at the wires going into the thermostat - they're usually tiny, which indicates that they carry minimal voltage.

The thought process:

1. Is there gas at the furnace? I.e., is the pilot light lit?
2. If you short out the leads at the furnace, does it fire up? I.e., is the furnace functional?
3. If yes, then short out the leads at the thermostat, i.e., is the thermostat functional? If yes, the furnace will fire up.
4. If the furnace fires up, it's the thermostat that's not working. Check the connections, any battery, etc. If no it's the wiring between the thermostat and the furnace. Probably best to call a pro, unless your husband is handy.

*******

I've dealt with that scenario many a time. One key is early recognition of the problem. It can be diagnosed in utero by ultrasound, but only in skilled hands that know what they are looking for. After birth it becomes a race against time. If it's only the transposed arteries it can turn out well, but sometimes there are associated defects inside the heart as well.

We used "Big Blue Baby Boy" as a mnemonic. More common in boys than girls, Blue right from the moment of birth but without respiratory distress is transposition until proven otherwise.

257 I spent most of my first year in the hospital, but again, I was never told why.

******

In 1959 neonatology as a specialty was still in its infancy (heh). A 2-1/2 pound premature baby quite likely would have had immature lungs with surfactant deficiency (known at that time as hyaline membrane disease). The aggressive treatment of that with endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilator can cause substantial airway damage also known as bronchopulmonary dysplasia, which in the 50's to 70's often required prolonged hospitalization for respiratory care. I saw some babies in the early 80's celebrate 18 month birthdays in the hospital. That almost never happens these days.

I have never owned a thermostat with digital display, or any kind of day/night setting either. KISS principle applies. Anything so vitally important as a furnace (leastwise in a cold climate), should be made as simple as it can possibly be, to reduce the number of possible failure modes. The old Honeywell Round thermostats, with the mercury switches in them, last essentially forever.

Good thing I remember nothing from that time! The person I really feel bad for is my mom. My sister (5 years older) said my mom went to the hospital every single day to visit me. And she had two older children and had to take them on the bus with her because we had only one family car and my dad took it to work. I think of my mom walking to the bus stop everyday with two little kids in tow to visit me - and, God almighty, thank you, Mom.

I never thought to thank her for that or imagine how awful it must have been for her - and now she's long dead, it's too late to thank her and I feel sad about that.

=========

Whoa, hello, dear! Late to the thread, but I have a thermostat problem, too.

Mine was flashing like insanity and I couldn't turn the heat up. I took a little video of it, posted it on Twitter and tagged Honeywell, and they saw me (they have people monitoring their social media accounts 24/7) and they walked me, well, through the same routine I'd found online and failed on. We finally concluded that I need a new thermostat.

So I got one at Home Depot today. Only reason it's not installed is that I got it home and it turns out I need AAA batteries, which I'll get tomorrow.

I'll post my results tomorrow.

332 Evenin' Horde.

Survived my sojourn in the belly of the beast last night (concert at Slim's, in San Francisco). The somewhat inebriated older dude next to me, sitting on the wrought iron railing, with a 10 foot drop down to the stairs behind him, kept me on my toes, lest I had to prevent disaster. Fortunately, the dude kept his feet wrapped around the balusters and remained vertical.

An older lady was not so lucky: she was right in front of the stage, and had some medical emergency which required that she be dragged, unconscious, out of the venue during the encore. When we left she was propped up on a bench and being watched over by the Slim's staff, still unconscious but breathing, at least. I presume medical help was summoned. Hope she's OK.

A young lass with a blue mullet (not as bad as you might think) was wearing a T-shirt that said "Ignore Unsolicited Advice". I wasn't quite sure what to do with that advice.

This issue of the pamphlet is called "Doom Town," about Sodom and Gomorrah, so it's pretty much like the televised Democrat/CNN LGBTQ Town Hall the other night, except for the ending. The art is better than I remember from the last time I saw one of these. Too bad a sodomite didn't buy this case of pop.

In some older HVAC systems, the 24 volt thermostat powers a small heater relay. When the metal disk in the relay pops from hot to cold status, it activates the 120 volt and 240 volt systems, such as furnace and air handler fans. Your problem may be the relays.

________

Have you ever watched Speedy Gonzales through a world-historic lens?

Faceless corporation has all the cheese. The means of production and distribution for society are, of course, in the imperialist United States.

The corporation hires an animal, invariably a cat, as security. The cat is from the proletariat but is selling his services to the ruling class.

Our hero, clad in a partisan red neckerchief, faces the danger of the cat to re-appropriate the cheese to his fellow mice in Mexico. It's not stealing, you see, as the pre-Revolutionary owners of the factory currently control the cheese which they themselves acquired through theft -- the theft of the labor of the working class which they oppress.

Notice how the heroic mouse doesn't seek to harm the cat but instead tries first to reason with him.

The story could be set anywhere, but the creators chose Mexico as a tribute to Leon Trotsky.

381 Hrothgar is correct. The battery just runs the clock. The funace is controlled by the 24 V AC from a transformer usually near the furnace. If you take a paperclip and run it over the wire terminals inside the termostat, you may see a tiny spark.

The red wire usually is the "hot" one and when shorted to the others will turn on the various fuctions like fan, etc, If not then the transformer is either dead or diconnected. Don't worry you can't rreally hurt anything as the voltage is low and current limited.

Yes ,estimated based on previous year. We had a previous tax person that filed for extension. We were nailed hard for penalties. The tax firm paid them, wrote a letter to the IRS, a few years later the IRS refunded the penalty to us, we did the right thing and gave the money to the tax firm since they had already reimbursed us. Yes, we use someone else now. The Trump tax cuts have also hit us hard.

If you EVER get the chance, you gotta see an episode of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour where Darren McGavin has his car stolen just after he's killed his wife and stuffed her body in the trunk... and the guy who runs the car-theft chop-shop is Telly Savalas, and he takes the car back to McGavin, who then tries to get the thieves to steal it again.

It's TV gold. It's genius!

I heard quoted a survey of traffic fatalities and injuries post-adoption of the car airbags.
The upshot was that airbags did decrease injuries and fatalities for drivers and passengers, but this is linked to an increase of injuries of fatalities for pedestrians and other people outside of the car.

On review the explanation was that the feeling of safety by all this preventative muck causes people to drive a bit more carelessly.

"Imagine." as the explanation went, "that you have this one foot spike sticking out of the middle of your steering wheel ready to spit you if you hit anyone. Will you drive more or less carefully with that in your face?"

425 when you are driving a car with a steering wheel air bag, do NOT hold the wheel with the traditional 10-=2 grip, and your fingers wrapped around the rim.

unless, of course, you want dual broken wrists and other assorted trauma when the bag goes off.

this dawned on me years ago, and was proven a few year later when some moron made a blind turn in front of me and i T-boned the shit out of them.

i was holding about 4-7, with my fingers cupped on the rim, able to move it, but not wrapped around it or locked in place..

airbag went off, blew my hands down and away, and i had one small abrasion on my left wrist as a souvenir.

426 According to the findings of a new Hill-HarrisX poll, a shocking 32 percent of black male voters would prefer to vote for Donald Trump over a generic Democrat opponent in the 2020 presidential election.


From a poll at BigLeaguePolitics.com


Now, it also said that black women only support him at 7%.

I believe that Trump got overall about 8% of the black vote in 2016.

But 32% of black men is a big swing to reelecting him.


As the article concludes: no wonder why they are doing everything to destroy him!

Speaking of Hitchcock, tonight is the hilarious episode where this somewhat prudish, prim and proper Englishwoman goes on holiday in France. She decides to take a bath in her hotel, which in a separate bath room on the hall with her room.

She gets out and goes back to her room. The knob falls off in her hand as she closes the door, and then she realizes she's stepped into the wrong room, noticing a man sleeping the bed.

She's mortified and afraid of scandal. He hides in the closet, then under the bed. She then discovers the man is dead, and that makes the situation even more frantic.

436 I started in this week on the next Big Project around the house. I am ripping out the lawn and planting new grass.

I'll do half now and the other half in the spring. Doing it that way so I can move tractors and such around without turning new grass into a mud pit.

Finished up the first 8000 sq ft this morning (plowed, disked, raked, seeded, buried, rolled, top covered, fertilized, and watered) in the back yard. That's a little under a quarter of the whole shebang. Next is one of the side yards and a bit more in back by the patio and spa. Less tractor and more hand tools for that.

My back is calling me names.

437 I've been pondering that story about the man killed by the illegal driver - the victim had foolish ideas, but he didn't deserve to die for them. Look at him with 5 kids - he loved children, he believed in dedicating himself to a family, he was a good man who just had piss poor ideas about governance. There are a lot of "good" people who should never be allowed to have any say in how we're governed, because they're incapable of understanding the harsher things about this world that one has to know if one is to govern.

It may be that our whole experiment with "democracy" will turn out to be a big mistake.

On of the updates here on my latest machine turned the "Fast Shutdown" option on without my knowing it. This is another name for a "hybrid shutdown". Userland shuts down and the kernel gets into a state before the userland has been started. It then hibernates.

It does not flush the hard disk write buffers, letting the disks get into an inbetween state. If you boot any other OS or even another instance of Windows, it will cause disk corruption.

It did that with me, and corrupted 3 or 4 partitions.

Windows is getting so damned complex, running on so many different types of systems with countless different configurations that testing for every possible combination is impossible.

The fast shutdown thing wouldn't be a problem if one had only the one install of Windows and wasn't multibooting. You'd think they would put something in to catch that, but MS has never been one to try to place nice with other OSes. Of course, here, it's not even playing nice with itself in other installs.

This resetting of sundry settings seems to happen randomly. Sometimes it does, and sometimes it doesn't, depending on countless factors.

Then there was the infamous 1809 update, Fall of 2018. The latest is 1903, and there's another one coming about right now.

Anyway, there was a bug in the 1809 upgrade install that would *delete* user data files in the home directory. It had something to do with some OneDrive setting and affected way less than 1%.

Now, during the beta testing, the Windows INsider preview program as they call it now, that bug was encountered and reported. Multiple times.

Somehow, those bug reports were ignored. They released and it started hitting users big time. They had to pull the upgrade until they got it fixed.

462 Catching up late. I would add a postscript to WeirdDave's excellent "Suicide is Painless" thread earlier, if I may.

We think of suicide as a single act at a single time--the act of swallowing the pills, or jumping off the bridge, or what have you. This is not always the form suicide takes. In fact, there are suicides that go unrecognized, disguised as deaths from heart disease, or complications of diabetes, or other such.

These are the slow-motion suicides. Sometimes folks just start losing interest in the things that keep them going. They stop looking after themselves, believing it isn't worthwhile. They stop seeing to their personal affairs, thinking it's pointless. Bit by bit, the basics of life fall away, until eventually they die of this or that, often on the streets or in some shelter.

Make no mistake, these are every bit the suicides the folk who hang or shoot themselves are. These people gave up on life, but for whatever reason couldn't take the single act, so they dragged it out. It's likely they never realized that's what they were doing. It's a damned subtle way to end yourself.

I should know. When my treatment for depression started last year, one of the realizations that hit like a truck was that I had been doing exactly this to myself for God only knows how long. I still am, though I struggle to overcome it. I fear I will eventually lose this battle; either the damage done already will take its toll, or one day I will simply give up entirely, the weight of previous choices becoming so hard to overcome that my already-weak spirit will simply collapse entirely.

This may be the hardest form to counteract, even if you recognize it. Stopping a simple act is one thing, but how do you counteract the way a person lives their entire life? How do you get a person who believes they aren't worthwhile to start living as if they were? I have no answers. I probably never will, at least while I draw breath. If I had those answers I would not be the miserable wretch that I am.

Just...understand. This is what some of us do. It's a lot less about you than you may think. It's not your fault. If we were healthy we wouldn't do this. We are sick, mentally and spiritually, and science has fewer answers than it would admit.

That's all I've got. Sorry it's not more or happier. But I don't really do "happy" these days.

481 Sock monkey, not great mind-wise. Went up north this weekend again. She didn't remember that it is a long drive. (Went weekend before also). Helped her pack her overnite bag and talked about staying overnite, what we would be doing, but she was surprised we weren't going back home same day.

485 Ican relate. Paterfamilias spent the last 2 years of his life living with my wife and I. I watched him enter into the final stage of Alzheimer's. It was the toughest thing I've ever had to do. That being said it was a huge blessing in my life. I would do it again without hesitation. My older brother spent a little bit of time with him but my other 2 siblings were no where to be found. Persevere my grey box friend. It's a good thing you're doing. I put my email out for Brother C a few posts earlier. Feel free to drop me a line. One of the things that helped in my journey was talking with other people dealing with the same situation.

486 Did I comment about the library books? She still loves to read. Granted she can read the same book 2 weeks later and not realize it! The last two books she had, i noticed one had a loose page. She said it was like that when she started reading. Hmmm, maybe. Thought to myself I'd hand it to librarian upon return so it could be repaired. The day she started the next book, 1st thing she did was tear out the title page! "Well what else will I use to mark where i stop reading?" was her response to WHAT ARE YOU DOING? The library was our most frequent outing.

Posted by: My life is insanity at October 14, 2019 04:17 AM (dyO5W)

487 Sock monkey, thanks. The situation family-wise is similar. I will make note of the email, you are correct about a venue to talk. There is nothing I can do to change the situation, but talking (and laughing, and crying) with someone you can compare notes with, it sure helps.

489 Ft. Worth cop violated basic Trigger Discipline, by not "indexing" his finger along the frame above the trigger guard.

With his finger ON the trigger, the adrenaline dump of seeing a person in the "open door" welfare check house, coupled with the muscle tensing act of yelling commands, created just enough muscular contraction throughout his whole body, that the already "fight or flight" grip he had on the gun, transmitted to the trigger finger, and BANG, happened before he even realized it.

Failure to comply with procedure. Failure to exercise proper trigger discipline. Unintended discharge due to failure to manage and control his own actions and reactions.

Manslaughter, straight up. Felony Murder if the jury is so inclined, but not Pre-Meditated Homicide.

If the cop wants the minimally injurious outcome to his life and future, he'll use my explanation in his own words, OWN his mistakes, turn in his badge and gun and resign his commission.

Only this might sway a jury to show mercy, I think.

So many cops did this with revolvers that could be "cocked" into Single Action mode, resulting in a "hair trigger", that many departments ordered "Double Action Only variants thereof.

Having watched that video, the cop did not INTEND to shoot, at all. It's the shouted commands, the chest wall tightening, and resultant overall muscle contractions, that overcame the pistol's mere few pounds of trigger resistance, till it could resist no more.

"bang".

Keep your booger hook offa the bang switch, Horde.

You know when it's Shooty / Non Shooty time. And what to do, accordingly.

492 re CA's insane new law (BIRM) about single use shampoo bottles in motels --

I've stayed in quite a few motels over the years, though mostly in the South. I can recall exactly ONE place that had a dispenser mounted in the shower; the rest used the small bottles.

And that brings me to my main point -- I bet Gavin has a buddy in the dispenser selling/filling business, and ole Gav probably is getting a cut of profits.

Let's see here, if my calcs are right there about 3 million hotel/motel rooms in the US, though I couldn't find an exact stat on that. Meh. Close enough.

That's a lotta dispensers, boys and girls.

The sanitation companies such as San-Tex who did the urinal mints, rubber screens and such, were all bought out by giants in the Rental Uniform Industry, mostly in the '90s, early '00s.

ARAMARK is the giant, and buys a shit-ton of Made in China garments for their uniform rental side of the house.

CINTAS is next, but a more Patriotic, Cincinnati based giant.

UniFirst and G&K constantly vie for 3rd.

Can't speak to G&K, but UniFirst has nothing BUT U.S. and U.S. territory manufactured uniforms. (NYSE: UNF)

The Uniform Giants are the MASTERS of the Route Sales delivery business mode. It was childs play for them to subsume all off the "sanitation" companies into their route sales models.

So?

Watch for the Uniform Giants to step into he market for "refilling" those in-bath dispenser systems.

And. Follow. The. MONEY.

Did you notice that the distaff side could use "female logic", which was not Aristotelian logic?

Now we have the Democrats using "female logic" constantly. Trump is an Aristotelian. But he is not as tolerant as Donny or Sonny. But being POTUS is not being the male star of a comedy, variety show either.

518 Good Morning ONT Morons; today is Monday, October 14, 2019. On this day in in 1066 the Battle of Hastings pretty much decided the fate of England. The Normans saw their chance with England divided in a war of session to the throne they first hit at Hastings. The fighting for England continues but was over fairly quickly. William 'the conqueror' was crowned King on Christmas day that same year.

flush so far, and then cause stoppage.

Gun Thread: Buy Ammo [Weasel]

ammo shelves scaled.jpg
Bountiful Supply!

We spend a lot of time discussing shooting here on the ol' Gun Thread. In fact, if it wasn't for shooting, we'd be stuck talking about h8, or social awareness, or even the horrors of climate change. What we haven't covered is how much we have of what we are shooting. Lets take a peek below and find out exactly what the ever-loving hell I'm talking about, shall we?

What am I talking about? Well I'm glad you asked!

Buy Ammo
All of the talk about practice and shooting techniques doesn't amount to much if you don't have the ammunition to shoot. A long time ago, I think it's been two or three big 'scares' ago now, I decided to keep on hand a basic supply in every caliber I own. Then I started reloading and buying components in bulk. Now I have very little room left in the basement, much to WeaselWoman's annoyance, but that's a different problem. Some states or localities may have restrictions on the amount you can store at home, but for now, my state does not. Be aware of any such restrictions and decide how to proceed in your own particular situation. Today I'm very comfortable knowing the next time ammo is scarce I will not be caught short-handed.

What had happened is early in my obsession with guns and shooting I was buying ammo at the range or sporting goods stores as needed, and that meant maybe 100 or 200 rounds at a time. As my firearm collection grew to include many different calibers, this just simply wasn't a good solution anymore. It was also mildly retarded, even when buying for just one caliber, because I was at the mercy of the retailer and limited to whatever was on the shelf at the time. One day I went to the store and there wasn't anything on the shelf. Sad and dejected I went home, sobbed into my pillow, and waited for the supply to catch back up with demand.

I don't recall hearing about an ammo shortage for a while now, and that's mainly because I don't really pay too much attention anymore. One of my shooting pals has never seemed to really grasp the idea of stocking up, even a little bit, and is constantly running out of ammo even absent a shortage. I think he keeps a magazine or two of self-defense ammunition in reserve, but for long periods when ammo was hard to find he could never go shooting. Eventually though, the ammo he needed would reappear on the shelves and he'd be good to go again.

But what if the ammo shortage never resolved itself? What if it was never coming back? What do you have on hand right now, today, if the trucks were to stop delivering ammo? Are you comfortable with that answer?

The reasons for the shortages of the past generally had to do with a politician saying or doing something stupid to upset the markets. All of a sudden everyone would run out to the store and buy what they could and we had an instant supply shortage. Since the current administration is gun friendly, times are good right now, but believe me when I say it's not going to last forever. Every single challenger to our beloved President Trump really does mean to restrict or eliminate altogether your rights under the 2nd Amendment. Think I'm kidding? Just listen to what they have to say on the matter, and don't for a minute think they don't mean it.

Do I think our current social and political situation will continue to deteriorate? Your guess is as good as mine, but let's just say I don't think it's going to get better. Do I think it will descend into open warfare and street fighting where I'm going through thousands of rounds of ammunition saving democracy? Probably not, but I'm not betting against that, either. Who the hell knows? Given the uncertainty, what I can do is simply be prepared for the possibility that the supply will someday dry up and what I have on-hand is all I'm going to get.

If you couldn't buy ammo starting tomorrow, realistically how much would you want to have on-hand?

Do you have it?

Stocking Up
If what you think you need is greater than what you have, then now is the time to start doing domething about it. If you have decided you need to stock up, and have developed some idea how much you should realistically have around, how do you go about it? Well, there are are a couple of ways; a little at a time, or a lot at once.

Buying at Retail - this is fine if really necessary and you're in a pinch, but unless you find a big sale you're probably paying a premium. The upside is you're not paying for shipping so in many cases it might not be the end of the world. Do the math - shipping a thousand rounds of ammo can cost $25 in freight alone.

Gun Shows - Ammo sellers are usually well represented especially at larger shows. My experience, however, is the prices are often no better than regular retail. Again, you won't pay for shipping, but don't expect a great deal price-wise. I think gun shows can be a fun place to look around and rarely offer a bargain on much of anything, but you can pay with cash.

Online Sales - this is where you can sometimes get a good deal and buy in bulk. Again, the key to shopping is to stay ahead of the demand curve. When the rest of the shooters in the world are panicking, you typically aren't going to find great deals online either, so plan ahead. There are a gazillion places online to shop for ammo, and I link them regularly here. Ammoseek is an online search tool including fairly real-time pricing and is an excellent tool. Georgia Arms, Palmetto State Armory and SG Ammo are a few online sellers just off the top of my head. Subscribe to their mailing lists and wait for sales. Since many of these sellers have little or no overhead, prices can be attractive compared to stores. When you find a good discount or especially a free shipping offer it's time to get out the credit card.

So now you have a pile of ammo - will it go bad on the shelf and be a big waste of monry? The short answer is No. Stored properly, newly purchased modern cartridges are probably not going to go bad in your lifetime. I regularly shoot surplus ammo made nearly 70 years ago and it still works just fine. I have no idea how it was kept before I got it, and I have never had a problem. What is proper storage? Simply store ammunition in a cool, dry place and above all, avoid high humidity and wide variations in temperature. That's it. I would not store large quantities of ammunition in a gun safe or any tightly confined space in case of fire. A cartridge box in your closet will be just fine. Keep in mind though, this is for ammunition made today. What if later the propellants are altered to degrade over time as a deterrent to stockpiling? I'm not a chemist, but cannot imagine that would be a hard thing to do.

I hope this gives you something to think about. Have a conversation with yourself and realistically assess where you are and where you think you need to be, and act accordingly. If necessary, concentrate on ammunition for the one or two guns you're likely to use most. Things are quiet now but that probably will not always be the case.

***Mail Bag***

Once again, our pal Neon Madman delivers the mail!

In the blackpowder rimfire cartridge days, .32 was a very popular caliber and quite a few brands of rifles and pistols were chambered for them. The .32 Long was probably the most common, originally used in the Smith & Wesson New Model 2 revolver, and later in many other rifles and pistols. Although now these are all obsolete in the US, per Cartridges of the World, Navy Arms had a run of .32 Long made in Brazil in 1990.

(l-r): .32 Extra Short, .32 Short, .32 Long, .32 Extra Long, .32 Long shotshell, .32 Short shotshell, .32 Short blank.

Am I the only one who finds these fascinating? Thank You Neon Madman!

5 I've had a good experience with buying at gun shows. A number of retailers are competitive with online and if you count shipping (which you must) you break about even.
In fact, I've found some sellers undercut the online stores because they came upon a batch and want to turn it around quickly.

I go to each show with an ammo budget above and beyond any purchases.

I also keep a reserve that is only for emergencies.

9 Haven't been to the range because Husband and self just got back from ten days in Virginia. Hope to go next weekend, though.
I have a 20-ga Mossberg, a home-defense weapon with which I also shoot trap because hey, I've got this shotgun, might as well practice with it. The range only allows 7 1/2, 8 and 9, but I also have a couple of boxes of 4 which I bought by mistake some years ago. So I'm saving those for any baddies who might try to break into my house.
Up 'til now I've been buying my shells at Walmart, but am thinking of ordering bulk from some place like Lucky Gunner.

21 Hello Horde!

As I mentioned last night, the 6th(!) Annual SW Ohio MoMe was a smashing success, and this year we added a pre-MoMe trip to a range. I had previously promised Weasel a range report, and that will be forthcoming, but for the nonce let me say that you should NEVER mess with a dead Moron: before yesterday, buzzion had never fired a weapon IRL, and his performance was LEGENDARY.

Special Thanks to Alton Jackson who drove all the way from Michigan to grace us with his presence and expertise.

Aside: I'll post a MIL update on the ONT (Spoiler Alert: things are NOT good).

23 Stocking wasn't an issue for me until Wally World went PC.
It was as easy as a)go to range b)shoot 100 rounds c) go to Wally's and buy 200

Not so easy now. Plus, I'm getting uneasy at the pressure being applied to corporations to do the restricting government hasn't the balls to do. I think that's going to increase going forward.

25 Speaking ammo, I'm looking to change things up a bit, and see how my firearms (the ones not at the bottom of the Red Ceder) respond to some variations in ammo.

I've been very happy on the whole with a steady (and inexpensive) supplier of remanufactured ammo, but I'm noticing it seems dirtier than the factory stuff.

So I think I'll switch stuff out for a bit and see if I see a difference.

It is essentially ready to shoot except that I remembered I gave away my ProMags to my minister a couple years ago.

Posted by: Ace-Endorsed Author A.H. Lloyd at October 13, 2019 07:17 PM (cfSRQ)

34 Since I shoot older weapons, I always buy and shoot what I buy. I buy in dribs and drabs and when I get a few hundred rounds of a particular caliber, I go shoot it.

French 7.5, Carcano 6.5, Jap 6.5 or 7.7, 8mm Mauser, etc, etc.

I always keep back about 40 rounds of each caliber just for insurance until I build it back up.

Weird pistol/revolver rounds like Jap 9 mm or French 7.65 long I shoot only half the box then keep the other half in storage as I just want to make sure the stuff works.

Worst thing in the world is have a rifle or pistol with no ammo to shoot it with if you feel the need.

38 Made the mistake of seeing "Ad Astra" yesterday. Didn't realize it was about (gasp!) "toxic masculinity."

So I drove my toxically-masculine ass from the theater straight to Cabela's where (joy of joys!) I spied a mint-condition Yugoslavia M70A Tokarev. Sadly, it was 9mm. Now, I've wanted a Tok forever, but I really wanted a 7.62x25. But the gun was nice and the price was right, so it went home with me.

It came with two mags, which is good, because the mags are pure unobtanium (no, regular Tok mags won't work, the Yugos made their Toks with a longer grip to take an extra round.)

I looks enough like a Browning design (which it was cribbed from) that it gives me warm fuzzies.

Supressive fire keeps the enemy down while allowing movement for your side. It also burns ammo, while keeping the enemy alive, but hunkered.* That would be the only reason why what you said is true.

45 RANGE REPORT: Visited Rose Lake yesterday. Excellent weather.

Shot a friend's Galil. Heavy bastard. Not my cup of tea. I mean it was cool, but a very heavy platform to be pumping out 5.56.

I took the Mauser C96 out yet again, having replaced the leaf spring on the sights AND the sear spring.

Naturally the follower started to act up. The only real issue was the bolt wouldn't lock open, which made reloading a bit of a chore. Upon getting home I think I fixed the problem with careful cleaning an reassembly.

One of these days, the thing will just work...

I shot a Beretta Cheetah in .22 LR that was sweeeet. Fun little gun, maybe not the most accurate but easily the nicest-shooting .22 I've ever used. Must. Get. One.

Yep. When I reach the last box, I wait to get more before shooting again. Since gun shows are frequent (and the internet never sleeps) it's usually not too long before I can restock the more exotic stuff.

And let's face it, some stuff you have to buy in quantity when it turns up.

59 So I drove my toxically-masculine ass from the theater straight to Cabela's where (joy of joys!) I spied a mint-condition Yugoslavia M70A Tokarev. Sadly, it was 9mm. Now, I've wanted a Tok forever, but I really wanted a 7.62x25. But the gun was nice and the price was right, so it went home with me.


This is what you seek. C&R with a trigger safety instead of being butchered up.

61 Can anybody suggest where I might have a Star 9mm Luger barrel re-chambered to 9mm Largo? Seems an easy enough operation, but my internet searches have proven fruitless. My suspicion is that it might prove costlier than it's worth, since I doubt most gunsmiths have 9mm Largo reamers laying around.

And to those who may ask, the reason is that I have a Star Super Modelo B in 9mm Luger that is a jam-o-matic. I suspect that the mags it came with are actually Modelo A mags for 9mm Largo (which the pistol was originally designed for). There's extra real estate at the front of the mags, and after the first few rounds come out, the rest assume a nose-down position halfway out of the feed lips and bang straight into the bottom of the chamber mouth.

And no, the proper mags are not available. I seem to have a fetish for pistols with rare mags.

As I mentioned last night, the 6th(!) Annual SW Ohio MoMe was a smashing success, and this year we added a pre-MoMe trip to a range. I had previously promised Weasel a range report, and that will be forthcoming, but for the nonce let me say that you should NEVER mess with a dead Moron: before yesterday, buzzion had never fired a weapon IRL, and his performance was LEGENDARY.

Special Thanks to Alton Jackson who drove all the way from Michigan to grace us with his presence and expertise.

78 The Henry used .44 Rimfire, they made a small run in the 1930s but it is basically unobtanium. So are original Henry rifles, so it's kind of moot. But people buy, and sell, and shoot it when they can.

84 Well two gun related activities this week. Bought another Marlin XT-22 to replace the one that I shot the crown out of (better than 8000 rounds of mostly high velocity 22s have carved a chrysanthemum into the crown at the bore). Took it to the range and could definitely see the difference in accuracy.
Secondly - today I gave a pistol safety, take down, cleaning, and dry fire accuracy course to one of my black belts. When his absolutely breath taking Ukrainian girl friend comes to town in a few weeks - he wants me to do the same thing for her - plus all 3 of us will go to the range for some shooting.

I keep a certain amount of commercial ammo available for CC and HD purposes and I could add to it with my reloads if needed.

I take advantage of big sales on 9mm, 223, and 22lr. This is SD and practice ammo and I want to maintain good amounts of it. I'll take advantage of other sales on 38 special and 30-06 but they don't happen too often.

The suppressor industry has been pushing hard recently to get suppressors into the general market. I think The Lists of people who own suppressors is getting large enough that you won't stand out much more by going for it.

Plus, the good thing about buying a suppressor now is that if things do go really bad, you'll have a suppressor.

97 Yesterday was our 1911 themed range day. The Nurse, myself and Lazy Messenger threw some 230 grain downrange.

LM also brought a couple of suppressors, in .22 and .45.

The result...well, the Nurse is very good with single action anything. She regularly outshot me. LM is also very very good with any of his many, many 1911's.

I still don't have a good relationships with 1911s. I'm very impressed with the Rock Island 1911s and would reccomend them to anyone. It doesn't hurt that I shot them the best. My Ruger is also fine, good sights on it, but I'm not used to the 1911 trigger.

I'm used to striker fired triggers, with their takeup and softer 'wall' that I'm used to. I keep trying to 'force' the trigger break on 1911's and it makes me push my shots low.

So that problem is a me problem, but I just find most 1911's to be angular and uncomfortable in my hands compared to XD, CZ's or PPQs.

Next week, I plan on bringing my double stack polymer 45's to compare

Hey JTB - What are your thoughts on the big gun show out by Dulles? It's a madhouse and so I typically avoid it.

Posted by: Weasel at October 13, 2019 07:42 PM (MVjcR)

102 You can often find those steel "Flammables" safety cabinets on Craigslist. They're made of a heavy sheet metal, usually with louvers on the door. "Flammables" cabinets are normally painted a bright yellow, with "Flammables" a prominent decal or stencil (in red) on the door.

It wouldn't be difficult to add a hasp for a lock, or otherwise make them lockable. Some, are so equipped as made.

This is about ideal for ammo storage, as the cabinet can be to the floor or wall studs, and the locked cabinet gives a modicum of security to the ammo. And the ventilation helps prevent an overpressure in case of fire.

Got a lot of ammo though? Do your websearches, and find a set of surplus school gym lockers. All the attributes of the flammables cabinet, and you can store ammo by type, divided among the different bays. Surplus school lockers can often be found at verrrrrryyy cheap prices.

Happy hunting!

Yup....Spanish Star Model A became the Model B, and went from 9 mm Largo to 9 mm Parabellum/Luger.

However, the magazines were still made for the 9 mm Largo specs for a time, in typical Spanish fashion, so you do have to switch out and try different magazines to find one that works well in my experience.

Also, try just loading 5 rounds in the mag and see what happens. The spring and fit may vary and I have found this helps getting the pistol running right, even though at a reduced round capacity.

117 I've got a spam can of 7.62x39 milsurp that I figured might come in handy for the zombie apocalypse when I bought it. I've had it for at least 10 years and for part of that time had it stored in a less than ideal location, temperature-wise. I've always been curious if it will look like brass soup if and when it is ever opened.

I keep food in quantity for 4 weapons. I always have the same amount for each, and rotate each caliber in keeping with what I shoot.

If TSHTF I'm going to be forced to evacuate, I think. Not an easily defended base, the fallback is a different story. So it'll be necessary to leave some stuff but I CAN take weapons and ammo in quantity that will be adequate. I hope.

With luck I'll never have to find out if my prep was enough. Already been through combat once and have no great desire to repeat the experience.

Yes, I've fired milsurp ammo from all the way back to the 1940s without problems. Clean your bore well afterwards, because some of that stuff is corrosive.

If you morons want awesome deals on ammo, go to the Knob Creek machine gun shoot, and bring dollies to wheel it out. It's the best fun, for the lowest price, of ANY amusement attraction in the USA.

Posted by: Ben Had at October 13, 2019 07:46 PM (FyBLL)



Yes, and it's a "project in process". Had a welder build up material to the jaws, but then he went and flat-ground the top surface, eliminating the "rolling fulcrum" attribute of the too.

So, had another welder add more material to the top and "bite" area, by welding the jaws shut.

I've ground the right profile onto the top, but need to get the tool to a fab shop with a lazer cutter, so as to get a very fine, very perfect cut at the "bite".

I can then file the basic "chisel" angles on each jaw, and I have the VERY fine triangular Arkansas stones to set the edge.

Oh, and I've gotta harden them at the bite, then temper that after, so they'll be hard enough to sharpen, tough enough to work, but not be "brittle" in the doing.

One final thing. I don't know what composition of steel they're made of, but it was damn hard to find the right welding rod and settings to NOT just run right through the tool. But I think we've got the right stuff on 'em now, and I'll be able to make them work.

I'll bring them with me so you can see what I've got left to do.

This is for the half blind missus so I'm thinking under 100 feet is the more likely use. I'm planning to sight the Romeo spot-on at 25 yards though I'm not that sure what I am doing as I have no reflex sight experience.
Just sneaking around the house and yard with it and it seems pretty cool. Both eyes open and not even looking at the dot. Just lining it up on things. I was expecting to take that tall mount off and put it lower but I have changed my mind. It seems like you would have to go nose to charging handle if it was that low. I can just touch my face to the buffer tube and voila!, there it is.

144 I came across a reference to 38/70 caliber a while back. IIRC, it was an 1880s Winchester development, black powder of course. For some reason the round wasn't too popular and was discontinued.

If it was a bottleneck cartridge that bullet would be zipping right along but it would be harder to reload compared to straight wall cases like the 38/55.

Sorry I can't remember more.

If you keep going archaic, things get easier.

I've noticed Tokarev 7.62 costs the same as Mauser 7.63.

So if I buy a Tokarev, my ammo supply situation actually gets easier! (At least that's what I tell my wife).

If you must go exotic (or at least more expensive) I do see some advantages to picking common calibers, like .380 or .32 auto. Since buying one of each, the cost of getting more is a little less since - gosh - I've already got that caliber in stock.

I knew a guy who had a varied collection who decided it was too much of a hassle so he sold everything and collected only 9mm for a while.

Oh, did he regret that....

170 We've discussed this before in reloading threads but I like to be able to hand load for every caliber I own, except 22lr. During the last shortage, even components were hard to find. That situation is not one I will repeat. I have powder, bullets, primers, and tools to reload as needed. And I never have less than several hundred cases to work with, some calibers the number of cases is a few thousand. But that comes with years of bargain hunting and serious brass scavenging.

For BP shooters, the last shortage made finding percussion caps VERY difficult. I've made sure that won't be a problem for me again. Same with flints.

Weyland-Yutani gets some of the blame for such a poorly worded order. It let Ash kill the crew and still not get the xenomorph.

For an air trunk with only one opening, it certainly had a few branches. Why not close all the hatches including the one Parker is guarding. Then Dallas goes in, pokes flamethrower through small center porthole and fires, and repeats process until main airlock.

How can Ripley with just a few key taps get the dirty info from Mother when it seems Dallas never did.

How did Ash get in where Ripley was without any sound of the doors opening? Unless each door has a sound effect chip that goes whoosh.

I don't have much deep knowledge about flashlight brands. Surefire is the big name, and I've had no problems with my low-intensity usage of Streamlight products so far.

If you don't intend to be firing thousands of rounds with the light mounted, you can probably get away with a light in the $50-100 range.

Guns are the quintessential all American bad ass tools.

But everything about them is measured in metric, the tool of soy drinking commie sucks.

Does this make gun enthusiasts a bunch of crypto commies?

This is nothing but lies, spread by the devil.

Many fine, American calibers are in standard nomenclature. Others use Euro-weenie measurements because Americans like John Moses Browning was earning an honest buck making kick-ass designs.

I don't own a 7.65 Browning, I own a .32 Auto and I don't give a damn what's engraved on the slide.

Even 9mm Short has an alias - .380 Auto.

Honestly, very few calibers are metric-only. We gave them 9mm Parabellum because it sounded kind of cool. Most of the rest we kept in normal, masculine nomenclature.

208 Found out why the military doesn't use reflector type telescopes for spotting scopes but instead uses refractors. With a Reflector like a Celestron when you are slightly off axis the mirror reflects the ambient light back to you, and the scope looks like a bright spot that makes you easy to spot. On the shooting range they work great and save a lot of money compared to a comparable refractor - but no good for combat.

It's true that 9mm is the mark of the Euro-weenies, and I find it shameful that it's spreading so far in the US.

Fortunately, there's enough concentrated America in one .45 ACP to balance out dozens (or even hundreds!) of 9mms, so the US gun culture as a whole is well-inoculated against commie Euro cooties.

I will add that the 'millimeter' factor is also a good argument for .40S&W over 10mm.

241 This was my strategy for building up an ammo inventory on a budget:

1. Buy Cabelas/Bass Pro/Dicks gift cards at a discount of roughly 15%. They offer these regularly and legitimately at SVM Gift Cards on ebay. There are also reputable discounted gift card resellers. Check GiftCardGranny for current pricing.

2. Wait for a store sale (i.e 15% off, $20 off $100)

3. Preferably, coinciding with a product sale or rebate (i.e. "Good Brand" 9mm for $10 or less per box)

4. Stock up, stacking a 15% + 15% + 15% discount for something like 40-50% off

Using that strategy and a little patience, I could regularly add 9mm to my inventory for 15-17 cents/round and .22LR for 4-7 cents/round.
I hope that information is helpful to other in the Horde.

249 "Flammables" cabinets are normally painted a bright yellow, with "Flammables" a prominent decal or stencil (in red) on the door.

I like how in the 1970s, truck carrying petroleum and other inflammable products had to change the signage by dropping the "in" part because products of our government education system thought that "Inflammable" meant that the contents wouldn't burn.

Because labeling cargo with a sign telling people what dangerous thing it won't do sounds like something government would mandate.

265 Anyone that likes reloading mil surp check out everglade ammo. I do 75gr 223 for 16 1/2 cents and 147gr 308 for 15. I usually end up at lucky gunner when I re up 762x39. all the rest of my calibers I don't shoot that much but I buy everything by the 1000 and 8lb cans if IMR 4895. I'm cheap but enjoy the hell out of shooting and I can shoot more this way.

One thing interesting about that caliber debate study; if you look closely - while the .22 failed to end the highest number of fights - it did have a higher one shot kill rate than any of the pistol calibers studied. Talk to any trauma surgeon - they hate working on .22 wounds.

Don't mix your Tannerite until you're damn sure n' ready to use it.

Once mixed, it goes weak in a day, and I'm not sure of the "inert" working life, but it damn sure ain't all that long.

Along with the splodey chemicals, they also have a decaying catalyst in the mix, which breaks down the compounded product, by design.

The .22 that hits has far more stopping power than the .45 that misses.

Always use what you are comfortable with. If you can put the .22 on the target, that's the ticket.

Posted by: Eromero at October 13, 2019 08:44 PM (UUkQp)


Agree.

At one end is 5.5mm Velo-Dog. You can shoot something all day with it and not hurt anyone. At the other end is .559 Bearf***er. The concussion from firing each $8 cartridge feels like getting punched in the teeth, and it is suitable for air defense.

Somewhere in between are all the handgun cartridges that are effective and reasonable to shoot, and as long as you're using .380 or better, placement > power.

Fun fact: The 40mm grenades were spin armed. A grenadier carrying a bandolier or two of ammo was 'encouraged' to hit the deck away from everyone else in case of ambush, in case one had armed itself due to joggling while moving.

282 Got home from the range about 30 minutes ago.

Weasel, I'm zeroed at 200 yards, ~1.5 moa (I'm a true amateur), with the Federal Premium 69 gr Sierra BTHP ammo. Acceptable baseline point for your MoMe exercise? I'm using an AR with a 24-inch barrel, 1 in 9 twist (the bullets seem to be stable; punching round holes at 200). Leupold Vari-X III, 20x max zoom.


Also, I patterned 2 different CCI 38 Spcl shotshells at 12 feet out of a 3-inch-barrelled revolver:

#9 shot (blue capsule): ~12-inch diameter;
#4 shot (red capsule): ~10.5-inch diameter.

Which one do you veterans and Ben Had recommended for MoMe pest extermination purposes?

I'm partial to Hornady Critical Duty for self defense applications. Good old Sellier Bellot works just fine for range and plinking.

Have you considered just buying a 9mm Largo barrel?

Posted by: An Observation at October 13, 2019 09:16 PM (1Q15G)

354 I have heard (take that for what it's worth) that
it's not safe to shoot Parabellum in Largo guns. Higher pressure and
the springs and lockwork are usually not up to it. So it might work... A
few times, and then stop working.

That's what I thought as well.

Funny how there are a number of calibers that are *just close enough* to cause trouble.

Checking back it appears to be a magazine feed issue and it seems to me easier to alter the magazine than rechamber the barrel.

358 Fun fact: The 40mm grenades were spin armed. A
grenadier carrying a bandolier or two of ammo was 'encouraged' to hit the deck away from everyone else in case of ambush, in case one had armed itself due to joggling while moving.

Posted by: Duncanthrax at October 13, 2019 08:53 PM (DMUuz)

Designing soldier- and sailor-safe artillery shell fuses is an art. I don't know how complex the 40mm grenade fuse safeties are, but most artillery fuses use a spin-released safety mechanism. An interesting comment by Ian Hogg (I think), based on his military experiences in the 40s and 50s: The British design safe fuses and struggle to make them work; the Americans design fuses that work and struggle to make them safe.

Ian Hogg has written a number of books on guns that I used to respect, but as I've started shooting the guns he talks about, I begin to have doubts.

I've got a Webley .455. The official version is that it was "too powerful," so they switched to an oddball .38.

Unless the loads are dramatically different. .455 Webley is a very soft round to shoot out of the massive Mk VI. A 9mm gives more of a report. I was actually disappointed. My C96 has far more noise and recoil, and no one ever writes about how brutal the Broomhandle was to shoot.

Anyhow, I've been doubting a lot of the conventional firearms lore more and more as I've gotten a chance to experience it first-hand.

minor range report from the SW Ohio MoMe yesterday;

the Heritage Rough Rider in .22WMR was a big hit; everyone who shot it walked away smiling

the only gun anyone liked more that the Rough Rider was the 1911, because of course they did

really nice range, Vandalia Range & Armory. had one of those "video arcade" set-ups (first time I'd ever seem that kind of system), it was wicked cool.

Hey! You're still here.

So the issue seems to be magazines, which while annoying, is probably easier (and cheaper) to fix than doing a rechambering.

*Not an expert on 9mm Largo disclaimer*

You might be able to mod the magazines to get a better feed. Off the top of my *not an expert disclaimer* head, it would seem to me easier to insert a shim into the mag and file down the follower than have your barrel altered.

Consulting a talented gunsmith would be helpful.

Note: don't use the dolt who "solved" the problem of my Dreyse having the wrong mag by simply cutting a notch into it without filing it down, ensuring that inserting more than five round WILL guarantee feed problems.

410 Clarification: by "shim" I mean a thin piece of steel along the appropriate side of the magazine (depending on the dimensions).

Basically, you'd be necking down the mag to get a tighter fit on a smaller round so they don't wobble around in there.

Another question: Does it lock open on empty? You could basically use it in single-fire mode until you find the right mags.

414 I probably have 12-15K in various calibers.

3K or so 30-06 I got from CMP a decade or so ago. Lake City ex boxed and Greek in clips on bandoleers.

3-4K 5.45x39. It was so cheap I just started buying 2K at a time when I went in the R guns store looking for other things. Had to buy a rifle eventually, AK-74 Tantal to go with it

A few thousand each of .30 carbine, .303, 5.56, 7.62x54R, 9mm, 9mm mak, .45, 8mm, bunch of spent brass for when I start reloading. Not to mention .22. A hundred or so rounds in another 3-4 calibers.

I believe in the costco model with ammo. See a great deal, see a surplus caliber that is getting a bit short here or there, buy it and stock u. It wont go bad and won't get any cheaper.

423 378 ... "I've got a Webley .455. The official version is that it was "too powerful," so they switched to an oddball .38."

The Brits have some odd ideas about recoil and power in handguns. In the first James Bond movie, Bond is forced to give up his 32 acp for his signature PPS in 380. The armorer described the 380 power like a brick through a plate glass window or words to that effect.

I'm not saying the .380 is ineffective, but iti sn't exactly a powerhouse round either.

Let us know how that goes.

One thing with vintage firearms: sometimes you have to bust out the file.

You shudder, sweat and tremble, but not all the parts were made to spec. A couple of passes or mods can make a big difference.

My multi-year torment with the C96 and then the Dreyse have given me a lot of lessons in this.

As I see it, there are two ways to approaching vintage/obscure firearms.

The collector doesn't touch them, but instead sticks them under glass. All well and good.

But the shooter knows that machines need to be tweaked and sometimes you have to get in there and change stuff.

Just be sure you know which group you're in before you reach for a tool...

Did I go overboard buying the gun that I did? My nephew thinks I should have started with a revolver
But I have been shooting for about a year now with my nephew. He has a nice collection of rifles, shotguns and handguns that I used, and I figured at my age might as well get what I want.
Besides, when I kick the bucket many years from now my nephew will inherit all my guns. LOL

I heard that Fleming wasn't much of gun guy. A "gun guy" wrote him a letter complaining about the .32 and he bumped it up.

While the language was over the top... I suppose at the time things were relative. There were no really super compact pistols in 9mm. For a snubbie you had .38 special. So, .380 actually was a hot pocket pistol solution.

FWIW both .32 and .380 were common police rounds for many decades in Europe and the 9mm mak round used by the military and police in the USSR and eastern Europe was basically the same as a +p .380.

And Hogg is supposed to be some sort of expert, seasoned shooter, etc. Guy's wrists must measure three inches 'round, including the embossed cufflinks if he thinks the Webley had tough recoil.

Seriously, my Hi-Power had more zip on it than the Webley. It's a big, soft, slow round. I can see getting rid of the revolver because it's frickin' HUGE, but not because .455 is a beast.

461 Wall of text alert!

Searching through old texts got me to wanting to dig this one up. A good, collaborative effort from the horde. This is Buzzion's collection of the various posts from the mid morning thread the next day:

210 From the Don Lemon thread last night I compiled the posts of several morons and put it into one and put it on the ONT. But in case anyone missed it I present to you MORONS ON PARADE!

Now passing the reviewing stand, I don't know these people. Anyone in the booth? The program says "Ace of Spades HQ Blog Kazoo and Harmonica Marching Mand", but they don't seem to be marching, and it isn't much of a formation. Can't tell what they are playing but you have to admire their enthusiasm, especially the kazoo section. They are playing their hearts out.

Are they really in the parade? or have they infiltrated the event? Anyone know.

Wait, here comes security now. It looks like the band is forming up into a symbol.. wait... ok, no, we can't show you that on camera. Security is trying to get control off... there is fire! There is fire coming from the bagpipe sections, look out.... oh the humanity people are on fire!

What? Fire eaters? Spitting flaming vodka? Seriously? The flames have driven security back. Now the have unfurled a pirate flag. Who are these people?

Wait, they are getting out crossbows and longbows, and are starting to skuffle amongst themselves.

I heard one of them yell "Shit just got real."

Wait, I just heard another one yell:

IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE THINGS WERE ALREADY GETTING OUT OF HAND!


"Some of them seem to have donned Confederate uniforms, while others are wearing Union blue."


One of them just shouted 'Messenger Bags are gayer than Crocs' for some reason.


Another just yelled in response:

"I saw Messenger Bags open for the Green Crocs at the Pink Flamingo in 1986!"

'All the while there's a lone, naked, fat man sitting on a White Ottoman to the very left of the stage.

Is his inclusion symbolic?

Your guess is as good as mine, Bill.'

Wait, standing next to the man on the ottoman is another man... is he dressed as a dildo?! Orange, with jagged brown stripes across the front? What the f*ck is that!?!

I got nothing, Bill.

"Wait now someone is walking around passing out pudding cups. And they're all opening them, but I don't see any spoons. What are they...

Oh, God no. Cut to commercial! Cut to commercial!"

Now... they are setting fire to a skull (what did they cover it with?) and another is dressed like a robot and he is humping the air!

It's a complete madhouse down here. We need to get the national guard down here!

463 Really quickly - her uncle was a prison guard who had confiscated it from a prisoner decades before. It was handed down through the family and ended up with the MIL. She decided to take it to her brother in Florida when we made a trip down. As soon as he got it he was playing around with it and shot a .22 cal hole in the ceiling. That was when she acted all surprised and mentioned she'd had it in her carry-on.

One thing I've learned from dipping my toes into the waters of Euro pistols: they were designed for melee range, not 25 yard targets.

My Webley is really nice. Honestly, too nice to shoot, but some jackoff shaved the cylinder, so I'm going to shoot it.

And you know what? It sucks at any kind of range. This is a gun designed to kill the guy IN YOUR FACE. Think "charging Zulu."

A lot of those old rounds were basically a way out of a fist-fight and at extreme close range, a .32 auto would be really nasty. I shoot my Dreyse (when it works) and it's got some pep in it, but it's designed for 21 feet or less.

The C96? Oh yeah, it's got horsepower to spare, but it's a cavalry officer's weapon and did well in that role. But those Euro 380s and 32s weren't made for that sort of thing.

My problem is with experts like Hogg who generalize in a post WW II environment when pistols have gained in power and accuracy. No, the .455 Webley was not "overpowered" or "intimidating." The Mk VI had a six-inch barrel and weighed a ton.

A while ago on the book thread I mentioned how I got rid of books on tanks and aircraft that I subsequently learned were in fact full of crap. I'm doing the same thing with my books on guns.

474 Hi Weasel, interesting thread.

This is probably TMI but whateves.

I carry a min of 1k for each caliber I shoot and .22 ... well lets just say I'll never run out. So lets see, I have .22, .380, 9mm, .44, .223, 7.62 39 and 54, .270 WBY Mag, 12 ga in 2 3/4' and 3", 20 ga 2 3/4" and a lot of .177 and .22 air rifle (quiet hunting) pellets. I reload everything except 22.

PS, the Weatherby ammo was pricey back when I acquired it and it's the only one I don't have 1k+ rounds hanging around for. I also store EVERYTHING in mil surp ammo boxes except the 7.62 as it's already sealed.

So yeah, if it gets exciting I think I'm in a fairly safe position all the way around.

Food Thread: Nuts! Anthony McAuliffe Would Be Proud

SavoryAlmonds.jpg

Our intrepid exercise-yard enforcer and fine cook Bluebell sent me a recipe for "Savory Spiced Pecans" a long while ago. I resisted them for as long as I could, but finally relented, and they are fabulous. Now, I would call them more sweet than savory, but hell, she's a Red Sox fan, so the fact that everything was spelled correctly is a great victory!

Anyway, I melded her excellent recipe with a much less successful recipe for "Spiced Almonds" that I found in the New York Times, and the results are above. The jar is sort of cloudy and dirty looking because the butter and sugar mixture doesn't really get perfectly hard and dry, but that is perfectly all right, because they taste great!

Here is a link to the PDF of the recipe. It's pretty straightforward, and to be honest the most important part is the technique from Bluebell's recipe. The spice mixture I used can be changed according to your palate.

Coincidentally I was wandering my local market a few days ago and saw a display for spiced cashews. Now, that is also a fine idea and one that I will be exploring in the near future. Made in my own kitchen, because $14.99/lb. is just...um...nuts!

I have extolled the virtues of the Brit's "Sunday Roast," and have recommended that we embrace it and improve upon it here in America.

The Ritual of Sunday Roast

The classic meal is a gray-weather-soothing, all-day-eating, then veg-on-the-couch-in-a-food-coma affair (think Thanksgiving, if it came once a week), and the communing around slabs of roast meat is a remarkably sturdy tradition—one that’s survived mad cow disease and the new appreciation in Britain for healthy (even vegan) eating and remains a nostalgic bulwark against the spread of American-style brunch. 

Yup...The Sunday Pub Roasts I have attended were conspicuous in their overindulgence of wonderful, fatty, rich, alcoholic comestibles, and even more conspicuously short on healthy alternatives. It's almost as if people like to eat good food and drink good booze and have a good time, and are less concerned with the politics of food (because that is what veganism is: pure politics). I don't appreciate the shot at American brunch though. It's not that big a deal in many parts of the country.

I like looking at these sorts of things because they are usually total crap, and this one stays true to form. My first hint was the incorrect conversions for weights and volumes. But it is, as you have probably already guessed, just clickbait. But a six-month Gold Membership with Ampersand utility for anyone who can find three glaring errors.

152 Things You Must Know In the Kitchen -- Ultimate Guide

Hat Tip: Misanthropic Humanitarian (although I think he was trolling me)

******

Arby's Makes Meat-Based Carrot in Response to Fake-Meat Food Trend
“Arby’s is not one of the restaurant companies interested in working with Impossible Foods,” Arby’s said in a statement this May. “The chances we will bring plant-based menu items to our restaurants, now or in the future, are absolutely impossible.”

In fact, Arby’s is so opposed to the idea of plant-based meats, that they’ve decided to essentially troll the entire fake-meat industry by creating a fake vegetable, called a “megetable.”


Hat Tip: Bitter Clinger

britcoq.jpg

Coq au Vin is an immensely satisfying cold-weather dish, but there are many recipes that are overly complicated and just too much of a slog for it to be in the regular rotation for many people. This recipe is pretty straightforward, although it is written in European Kickball units, so you will have to translate to a civilized language.

Easy coq au vin

As for the two bottles of red wine? Buy something cheap from Australia. It will be plenty rich enough, and it won't break the bank. Or even use one bottle of red and replace the second bottle with chicken stock. It won't be quite as rich, but it will be good. And for my sake don't use three bay leaves. That is at least one too many.

******

I absolutely love when market forces are unleashed to fix a problem.
Putting purple sea urchins on the menu could save California's kelp forest
But because it is California, it gets stupid:
The reason for this growth in numbers of the purple sea urchins comes down to rising sea temperatures, but also a disease that affected the sunflower sea star, the urchins' predators.
When in doubt, blame global warming! Never mind that there is another perfectly reasonable and far simpler explanation for the increase in the sea urchin population.

I spent an amazingly painful few hours in the ER, having a bunch of their spines removed from my heel. They went through my fin strap, through my bootie, and deep into my foot. So anything that knocks down their population makes me a happy (and vengeful) abalone diver.

25 I talk a lot at various threads here at Ace's, about getting out of California.

One reason I'm kind of passionate about learning to make a lot of tasty things at home that I can get from other places here, is because I have a hunch that when I finally get to (or have to) leave CA, I'll end up somewhere with significantly fewer fast food and restaurant options.

I especially want to teach myself to make great pizza, wings and Chicago dogs at home.

Coq au Vin was the plan. And it looked great. Until her father said "I don't want any chicken that has to be liquored up to face me." Alas for the red flare off the sinking ship of young love.

I heard later she became a Grateful Dead fan for over a decade. After that she called me collect to send her $800 in bail money, so she could get out of Sheriff Joe Arpaio's jail. And she was planning to be on welfare from CA.

One of the DC area's attractions is that formerly exotic ingredients are now commonplace. I've got both green and black cardamom, and they're really cheap at the local Asian grocery (H-Mart), as is a far better selection of produce than at the local Giant (*spit*). I've definitely switched to Wegman's, and will only darken Giant's door if I need one thing, since they're much closer. At this point, they're a glorified 7-11.

Pep, what did giant do? I'm not up on this.


Every experience I have with them is negative.

I judge a market on three things, and they'd better have at least one of them.

1) Price
2) Selection
3) Service
Giant flunks in every category. I think the thing that irks me the most is that the cashiers now don't even put the groceries in the cart. I have to direct them to do it every time. Could I do it myself? Sure. But when your prices are high, and your selection is low, it's a poor business strategy to suck at service.

Wegmans: pricy, but good service and selection
Costco: cheap, but limited service and selection
H-Mart: awesome selection and low prices
Giant: LOLGF

91 Did you get the school straightened out yet?

Not yet. It's on my to do list. The boy child is really kicking butt in high school. I am happy for him. I just painted our den, sprayed painted the brass on the fireplace, and whitewashed the bricks on the fireplace. My next project is to prep the sheet rock in the dining room where I tore off the chair rail and paint it. We love the new house. These things have cut in to my time on here. It's good to see you too!

95 Ok, I see there are a couple of cheese heads on the thread but I will post anyway. As I mentioned on the Chest Thread yesterday, I made Beer Cheese Soup for Mrs. Grilled some brats, too. Finely diced brats and threw in soup bowls at table. Pretzel rolls for dipping. Delicious.

Diced carrots and red pepper sauteed in butter. Make a roux. Chicken broth, Miller High Life, 1/2 & 1/2, worstershire( or Worcestershire), dry mustard, Dijon mustard. 14oz 3 yo WI cheese, grated. And some other things.

But, I just want say thanks to the Horde. I'm surrounded by Dems, and not the regular kind. The Leftist kind. All of our differences aside, the blog reminds me that we're numerous, we're everywhere and we're belligerent.

I Am Not Alone, lol.

Also, going through some tough times in my family life, the camaraderie at AoS reminds me that people actually give a shit about each other, even if they've never met in person.

It's a really good community.

Now, on topic: I don't always comment on it, but I've been learning to cook over the last couple years and the food thread is a must read bookmark thread each week.

Butter + mayo. Butter for the bottom piece, and it toasts up nicely while it does 80% of the cooking. The mayo is for the top part, because it toasts it up while finishing the melted cheese, without burning.

Serving the beans on the side is like giving someone a cheeseburger with a a slice of lettuce, and tomato on the side, that they are necessarily going to eat with the cheeseburger.

I make a mix of powdered cayenne and jalapeño (affectionately call 'Red and Green') to sprinkle on as needed. The cayenne, of course, gives you the front heat, and the jalapeñoño for the back heat.

354 343 Just thinking, I haven't even *seen* elbow macaronis since I was about 12. My mom used to make this abomination she called "American chop suey." It was hamburger meat, canned tomatoes and the dreaded elbow macaronis. Totally gruesome 50s food (much of which I like to this day, just not this).

355 qdp, a recipe mom and dad did. Corn tortillas just limp in oil to get the lye out, chopped onions, cheddar cheese, homemade sauce, sour creme. An egg on top if you like, fried in the tortilla oil. Bake in oven til bubbly.

359 OMG, fave neighbor just made his "so much better than yours" chili. It's got elbow macaronis in it!!! And super bland. I ate a bowl to be polite but, srsly, has anyone ever heard of macaronis in chili? Yeesh, some people's kids.

Posted by: Peaches at October 13, 2019 05:44 PM (14URa)


That dish is called "chili mac", or at least it is when the chili is served over the mac. It seems to be a Midwestern phenomenon...there used to be a chain in Chicago called "Bishop's Famous Chili" which offered it as a menu option and I don't think they were the only ones because everyone I knew in that city seemed to be familiar with the concept even if they had never been to Bishop's.

I make a sloppy mac. It's the Kraft mac n cheese with doctored up (onion and garlic) turkey meat Manwich poured on top. You bake it, cover it with Mexican shredded cheese and melt it. It sounds like it would be terrible, but it's delicious. Like your entire childhood on a plate.

369 "That's not chili, that's goulash. And if it's bland, not very good goulash." Ha! That is almost literally what husband (a native Hoosier) said to me as I was reading the description to him.

FWIW, I did make the apple-upside-down gingerbread recipe from King Arthur Flour this week. (Moki--I'll try Ina's recipe next time.) Liked the apple in gingerbread, but we both decided we'd prefer chunks of spiced apple mixed in with the gingerbread instead.

And this is completely a personal idiosyncrasy I know, but I hate hominy with the heat of a thousand suns. Partly the taste but largely the texture. Even in covered up with all of the other stuff in posole and menudo.

385 JQ, I don't know how many you cook for, and Costco certainly isn't for everyone, but with five kids we shopped there all the time. I had the Executive membership which was $100 but you got cash back on your purchases. I would average getting back $250 - $300 every year, so essentially they were paying me to shop there.

As I said, it's not for everyone, and you have to know your prices AND have good willpower, but for us it's really worth it.

You know what? I'm a total outlier on that. If I've eaten before I go food shopping, nothing appeals to me and even if I have a list, I think no, we don't really need that. And then I get home and I've barely gotten anything.

I will say that I do have pretty good willpower when I go to Costco. I see tons of stuff that I would love to buy but I don't.

Now, if they would be giving away chocolate or something, my willpower would sail right out the window. But so far, they haven't done so.

I just looked in my old Joy of Cooking, and for an entire chicken they use 3/4 cup chopped onion (or 1/2 cup pearl onions) plus 3 minced shallots.

I think that's probably way less oniony than 14 oz. of shallots would be. I'm intrigued, though.

450 Making linguine and clam sauce for dinner. Since I use canned minced clams, it's easy - and very tasty and satisfying. It's been a quick go-to meal since my early 20's.

Canned clams, garlic, olive oil or butter, clam juice, a bit of flour to thicken the sauce and fresh parsley and maybe a bit of thyme. Make the sauce while the pasta is cooking.

454 Bluebell, if you're still around.

The casserole was pretty good, flavor-wise. However, it needs tweaking--a lot of tweaking. After it finished cooking, it was literally swimming in grease, most of which probably came from all the cheddar separating, but also the butter and cream (definitely too much butter.) I drained the grease off and served it up because it was all I had at the ready, and it did smell great, and like I said, it tasted pretty good.

Bourdain's version calls for one onion (call that 8 ounces typically) plus 12 pearl onions.

Paula Wolfert's Southwestern French Cooking doesn't have a coq au vin recipe but does have one with red wine and red onions. 2 pounds of red onions for a 3.5 lb bird.

For pot roast try arm roast, we used to use Chuck but my wife prefers arm. I think it's because it's better marveled not just big chunks of fat. We never tried round roast for pot roast as it's not fatty enough. Maybe that's just our Midwestern taste. Always used to be Chuck but now we use arm roast it's great. Now I'm hungry for some.

Looking more closely, the original looks like it might be a little dry, which is why she added the cream and the butter. But you're right, 1/4 cup cream and 1/4 cup butter along with 1 cup cheese sounds like too much for two people. And you made it bigger, so it must have been swimming in it!

527 A wonderful sweet-and-savory nut recipe for the Holidays is the "Chipotle and Rosemary Roasted Nuts" by Ina Garten (The Barefoot Contessa), although I use one-fourth the amount of chipotle for events attended by children and geriatrics. Fresh rosemary is best, of course; but I've had success using dried rosemary leaves by combining them first with the vegetable oil and briefly warming them in the microwave. I do this first so the mixture can steep while I measure out the other ingredients. These make nice gifts!

Why not just do an Oven Stuffer Roaster. It will look like a tiny turkey and arguably will taste better. Plus, you can stuff it as well. Leftovers will be a manageable amount, and there' nothing like a chicken/stuffing/gravy sandwich for lunch on Friday.

534 Thanks, IrishEi, I loves me some roast chicken... do it frequently in cold months.

Suppose our guest(s) probably don't get it as often, so this is a likely alternative.

Not a real fan of Turkey anyway, and gosh even the small ones are still so huge!

Posted by: JQ at October 13, 2019 09:40 PM (gP/Z3)

535 Greetings, JQ ... Roasting a small turkey breast should provide enough meat for 4 people. These are often sold as frozen, and sell out closer to the holidays, so best to buy early. Roasting on a bed of veggies (carrots, onions, celery) will make a flavorful gravy. Alternately, buy roasted deli turkey and ask the cutter for thick 1/4-inch slices; place the slices in a deep glass pie dish, cover with jarred gravy and heat in the oven. While you're at the deli, pick up your favorite cole slaw. Bob Evans makes several varieties of already-cooked-and-mashed potatoes; these just need to be reheated (and maybe re-whipped to make them pretty). By early November, Ocean Spray offers a nice cranberry-orange relish that tastes as good as home-made (this disappears quickly, so buy as soon as it stocks). And if there's time to make one thing from scratch, I suggest the Midwest Sausage and Dried Cherry stuffing recipe at Food-dot-com. This can be made a day ahead and reheated; can also be made using cherry-flavored dried cranberries instead of dried cherries. I get the best results using challah bread, or potato bread. Hope this helps!

If These Are Our Adversaries...Buy Popcorn And Pudding Futures

Who can identify the various archetypes of the effete progressive who has never actually done...anything?

Extra credit for silly names.


I think the best part is the laughs at the end when the large angry man is done with them and walks off. Their nervous cackling is a clear signal to the onlookers that their witty comebacks are far more powerful than the very real threat that the hamburger seeker will clean all of their clocks.

To them that is victory.

Timmy didn't even bother to change his prescription glasses to look different. Doubtless, this is just a resume enhancer, but since Antifa is recognized as a terrorist group by at least a couple of states - isn't this problematic?

99 It's additive vs subtractive color. Whether light is generated or reflected. For instance in RGB white is 255/255/255 or #FFFFFF.

But, in CMY (excluding K) for print, black is 100/100/100 - a full mix, and also not truly black, as nothing in nature is. Vantablack comes pretty close though.

The only extra scene Exorcist might have needed was the Spider Walk scene. Everything else was superfluous.

RedLetterMedia just put up a Re:View of Exorcist (and Exorcist III, but separately). Good stuff. They point it's less a director's cut and more of a writer's cut, which seems true. Truthy, if you will.

I came across this bracing interview with Paul Craig Roberts (whom I'd never heard of before but background seems impressive) and his view of what Trump is up against and, so far, the abject failure of his DOJ. He says we don't need our AG in Europe investigating anything -- all the proof for indictments is sitting in his lap. It's all a cover and nothing will ever be done. He asserts that the oligarchs will crash the economy close to the election (if it appears Trump will win), and if that doesn't work, assassination.
