"If the mainstream media were doing its job, Rush Limbaugh wouldn't have one.

"If the mainstream media were doing its job, Brian Stelter wouldn't have one, either.1

"If the mainstream media were doing its job, Donald Trump would not be president.

"If the mainstream media were doing its job, they would not be constantly climbing into bed and steaming up the sheets with Democrats and progressives to help them promote their causes.

"If the mainstream media were doing its job, the Democratic Party would no longer be a national party.

"If the mainstream media were doing its job, the Deep State-orchestrated coup against a sitting president would've been covered, not buried2.

"If the mainstream media were doing its job, Melania Trump's photos would grace the covers of many news and fashion magazines.

"If the mainstream media were doing its job, reporters would actually be disciplined or even fired for totally botching up a story.

"If the mainstream media were doing its job, they'd concentrate more on getting stories right than giving awards to themselves.

"If the mainstream media were doing its job, J-school students would be taught that their job is to report the facts, not change the world.

"If the mainstream media were doing its job, Americans wouldn't hold journalists in such contempt, even lower than TV evangelists and used-car salesmen.

"If the mainstream media were doing its job, they'd never have acquired reputations as cut-rate hacks, lying propagandists, and shills for the progressive agenda.

"If the mainstream media were doing its job, there would not be such a huge gap between who they think they are and who they really are."

1There are countless media talking heads we can say this about, but I chose Stelter because he's the most cluelessly unself-aware insufferable jackass of the bunch. I mean, seriously, whose salad did he have to toss to get his CNN gig?

2There are countless stories we can say this about, but I chose this one because it's the biggest. In fact, I think history will eventually record that this is the biggest unreported story of the decade, if not the century.

Friday's celebs: Helena Bonham Carter and Richard Armitage. They both had parts in Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016).

Nobody explictly guessed at the "meta-theme" I was running last week. However, Jordan61 had the right idea:

44 Forgot you were on a Hobbit kick this week!

Posted by: Jordan61 at September 20, 2019 11:23 AM (PgV21)

This is close enough for full credit. What I had in mind was the male celebs from last week, Dean O'Gorman, Aidan Turner, and Richard Armitage, all played dwarves in Peter Jackson's Hobbit films: Fili, Kili, and Thorin Oakenshield, respectively.

By the way, Mrs. Muse and I are watching Aidan Turner in the Poldark reboot on Amazon Prime. The backstory is that Ross Poldark (Turner), an officer in the British Army has come home to his family estate in Cornwall after fighting in the American Revolution for several years, only to find his father dead, his girlfriend married to his cousin, and his lands and estate in serious neglect. So he's got to build his life and fortunes back up again. It's a good series (so far -- we're part-way through the first season) and we recommend it.

This painting is an expression of feminine power. Her beauty and style has made her the center of attention. She has her choice of either man or none at all, and is able to turn away an unwanted advance with no force. She's in command, and knows it.

I sometimes wonder about the yardsticks some people use. "As big as ten soccer fields." "Twice as tall as the Statue of Liberty." Yardsticks many people can't relate to very well.

So I need some info. Are these, like, ten of the smallest moving boxes fresh from U-Haul with nothing in them? Or, say, ten of those huge closet boxes, but stuffed full with books?

I hate moving. Still gonna have to do it one more time.

One of the less-remarkable instances of Horde mind convergence.

Thanks to copyright-uninfringing old singalong cartoons and gramma's old player-piano rolls saturating my youth, my mental catalog of music spans three centuries (although I'm probably more familiar with big hits of the late 19th than I am of the early 21st's). Practically anything can trigger a lyrical response.

Such impulses must be resisted, lest every mention of a bustle result in a multitude of hedgerow comments.

Horde resisting impulses. Bwah ha ha. I crack myself up.

When Mayor Pete Buttigieg argued at a presidential forum Saturday for a government-run health insurance option that people could buy into, while leaving the private industry intact, the crowd chanted "Medicare for All" so loudly organizers needed to tell the shouters to calm down.

It was one moment of several at the Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement forum during which Iowans sought to push Democratic presidential candidates toward more liberal positions Saturday. The forum only drew a relative handful of candidates, even as almost the entire field stopped by the Polk County Democrats' Steak Fry four miles away.

264 Late to the thread. I like Tissot's paintings for the use of color, more subtle than brilliant, and the layout of the scene. This one, and similar paintings, seem to show a sense of humor in the overly dressed women. Maybe that's just me. This one in particular shows that with the so fashionable lady, inappropriately dressed for a boat ride, against the plain clothing of the boatmen and the narrow quay. She's pretty well hobbled by that gathering around the knees. And her expression! Tissot could have included a caption: "Oooh, Aren't I so fashionable and special!" (He would have written it in French, I guess.) The expression reminds me of some of the 'surprised' look on 1940s and 50s pinup pictures.

Having said that, the painting is very attractive and rather fun. I can see why Tissot would have been so popular.

Some will, but lots of men, the majority I'd wager, are ultimately looking for a mate and a trustworthy sexual partner so he knows he's the Dad. The fact that women give it away for nothing now isn't their fault.
As to suicide, that isn't the only way they kill themselves. Lots and lots of men work themselves to death. Even more, especially the young ones, do REALLY stupid stuff to impress girls.

I once saw a Youtube video of a teen boy on a bicycle, atop a 3-story building. He rode it off and into a pool below, missing the edge, and severe injury or death, by literal inches. The motivation was lounging in bikinis next to the pool.

McCabe's claim reminds me of the courtroom scene in My Cousin Vinny when the sheriff is on the stand, and he's asked "What did he say when you asked him if he shot the clerk?" and the Sheriff replies "He said, "I shot the Clerk."

84:4.3 (935.3) Early woman was not to man a friend, sweetheart, lover, and partner but rather a piece of property, a servant or slave and, later on, an economic partner, plaything, and childbearer. Nonetheless, proper and satisfactory sex relations have always involved the element of choice and co-operation by woman, and this has always given intelligent women considerable influence over their immediate and personal standing, regardless of their social position as a sex. But man's distrust and suspicion were not helped by the fact that women were all along compelled to resort to shrewdness in the effort to alleviate their bondage.

Wry understatement!

After testifying to Congress that he had no problem with Trump firing Comey, McCabe immediately opened a criminal investigation of Trump. Rosenstein took the investigation away from him and then helped get McCabe fired before he could get his pension.

Rosenstein went on to help Barr wrap up the investigation and agreed with Barr 100% that Trump did not commit obstruction.

Rosenstein is a boy scout. He's not a partisan either way. He actually is one of those rare people in government who just follows the law.

Throughout history, the abusive arranged marriages have tended to happen much more often in the Upper Classes and the Nobility, where marriage is treated as a business contract between two families vying for power. That's generally been when a daughter is expected to follow the families wishes and "take one for the team".

I don't have a fixed opinion of Rosenstein, anyway. But I don't think the record shows that only McCabe says Rosenstein ever uttered words to the effect that he'd wear a wire. But for me, Rosenstein would have to explain the whole widening the Weismann probe, and his multiple changes to the scope of the Weismann investigations, even given they were finding bupkis on Russia.

Ultimately the big "interference" that they could pin on Russia could not be proven in court and the Weismann prosecutors were compelled by a judge to stop implying that the Russian ad firm was acting on the orders of Putin if they could not come close to proving it in court.

It's amazing that sooo many people in the US do not know what a sham the Weisman investigation was and ultimately only ended up throwing Paul Manafort in prison over something that both Podesta brothers could have been convicted for with their dealings with ACTUAL RUSSIA.

Rosenstein does not get a pass from me for being such a clueless stooge of this Washington behavior, either.

For starters, they both dubbed themselves prophets and both produced a new holy book that was allegedly given to them directly by an angel. They were both sexual predators who were able to use the rules of their new faiths to enable their sexual appetites. They both inspired militant followers who conquered wide new territories.

One could write a very interesting paper about how the feds made the Mormons abide by the rule of law and its lessons for the assimilation of the other religion.

Posted by: Insomniac at September 23, 2019 10:48 AM (NWiLs)

If we're talking about there being less provider men, that's because our society has become more matriarchal. Men as provisioners(and being rewarded for beta traits like dilligence and loyalty) is a patriarchal. Being an average well off dude is not sexually attractive, and a woman who has their own means of financial support has no reason to marry or stick with such a person. The Great Society did not provide incentives to enable men to fly solo, it provided support for women to do so.

In matriarchal societies, which are typically primitive, men don't really work because there's not much incentive to do so.

360 84:4.3 (935.3) Early woman"

I found the source of that quote, and I get what they're trying to argue for, ok it's not completely bad. But the quote about "early man" and "early woman" is still just.. stupid, for lack of a better world. Those things can't be understood unless one understands what the values of small nomadic family groups of maybe 30 individuals, maximum, were. It would be nothing at all like societies that have developed, for example, when studying aboriginal groups that still exist, such as the Bushmen, even basic concepts such as "property" are alien to them.

You cannot talk about "early man" while using modern cultural and social assumptions.

362 In my nabe, you could easily confuse today with 1982. It's all nuclear families, about 1/2 the moms don't work outside the home. Kids play outside, ride their bikes around the neighborhood, parents all know the neighbor kids, etc.

All the kids are in some type of activity like sports, dance, gymnastics, music, etc. But it's always secondary, school being priority #1.

It's all about parental involvement. Get kids with parents that care, they turn out OK. Get kids with absent fathers, mothers who don't give a fuck, the kids turn out shitty. And all the govt programs and trillions of welfare in the world won't change this.

The next line was, "The sexes have had great difficulty in understanding each other." Hilarious understatement, applicable for any generation.

I think the generalizations are sufficient to make the point about stages of development of the man-woman relationship. While "as a rule" or "on the whole" we've progressed, it's not a universal absolute by any stretch. We like to think of ourselves as well past troglodyte age today, yet one can find "early man/woman" and "primitive societies" and so on at many underpasses in modern Democrat-run cities, among the better-dressed like of, say, Epstein's associates, and in certain rock-worshiping sects.

409 Ukraine is a cesspool of corruption from top to bottom. That is what made it a perfect spot for grifters who wanted to pretend it was some incredibly strategic country torn between Russia and the west.

Says somebody in the country with the Democratic Party, actually suggesting that they immediately cite people for contempt and "fine them daily" into poverty if they don't breach executive privilege because somebody the Washington establishment didn't want to be president was voted widely-enough to be president.

The Democratic party is the heart and soul of the Corruptocracy. There is a Republican contingent. And the corruptocracy rules Washington. But I have stopped accepting that the Democratic Party cares about anything other than the self-enriching croney system they have built. They just have a certain high-sounding rhetoric to their corruption of the body politic.

Right, because they have to maintain some illusion of a representative republic. While the people of Asia don't know any better than that people in power will use it.

The American corruptocracy has proceeded by counterfeiting the Constitution as theorized and giving us the bits of the Constitution they can allow us to have. But it still has to *resemble* in some for the Constitution as dimly understood.

Which is why the Democrats work every day to distort what the actual Constitution says and the actual checks and balances of the Constitution. Who are you going to believe, the honorable Adam Schiff--or FOX NEWS?!!

Patton mostly had sycophants, not too many friends.

Grant had Sherman.

Of the two, I'd rather serve under Patton. The more I read about Grant, the more he's coming off as a passive-aggressive asshole towards some of his fellow generals.

The Morning Report - 9/23/19

schiffcoyot.jpg

Good morning kids. Another week and yet another phony scandal-bigger-than-Watergate with which the Democrat-Left-Media Complex hopes to eject President Trump from power. Bug-eyed booger-eater Adam Schiff-for-Brains is cocksure that this time he has got Trump exactly where he wants him. And yet again, as he plummets off the top of El Capitan holding 10 sticks of lit TNT with a 20-ton boulder following his trajectory by a few seconds, President Trump is peering over the edge with a bemused look. And then it's "meep-meep mo-fo!" as he races off to continue winning so much, we all get tired of it.

As Clarice Feldman in American Thinker states:

Congressman Adam Schiff (to experience the deep void, look into his eyes) has fallen into a trap in which he aims at the president and wounds his party's front-runner, Joe Biden, instead. It's not my imagination. MSN's Chris Hayes tweets: "I am watching this something turn into a story about Biden and am going to pass out..."

"...There is also a very strong similarity between Schiff's consistent lies about the Mueller investigation and the phony Russian Collusion story and the effort to remove the President for trying to repair relations with Ukraine, relations jeopardized by the former administration's corruption. He hopes the moribund press will broadcast his claims loudly and readers will not go beyond those headlines. In the meantime, as is their wont, the hysterical press on the left is drooling over the possibility of another impeachment angle, all else having failed to work and the President's popularity growing as their candidates manage to turn off tranche after tranche of voters.

Once again, Schiff pushed hard on the revolving door and it's about to smack him and his party in the face. This coming week, President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky are set to meet. Watch for it.

Read the whole thing. Ms. Feldman does quite a thorough job of actual journalism in listing the who, what, where, and why of all of this and, yet again it's deja-vu all over again with Deep State Leftist operatives within our intel and foreign policy bureaucracies out to sabotage the President's pro-American/anti-globalist foreign policy and ultimately the President himself. Sadly, it seems that the more patently obvious the smears and sabotage are, the more eager the saboteurs and backstabbers putatively on our side to open their cake-holes and emit odious blather. I give you Mittelschmerz Romney.

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

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.

Can you believe that ... whatever the hell she is? The chutzpah on that tweet is absolutely stunning. Do you think she is even aware of the irony, or is she so broken a human being she has no consciousness of her own bullshit?

30 I think a lot of people attribute Chick-Fil-A's success and winning business attitude to their Christian underpinnings, and I certainly think that's true.

But another aspect that helps them is that neither employees or customer base contains a lot of fags, freaks or hard leftists.

It's easier to run a business efficiently when you don't have whining-ass bitch boys and crystal rubbing cat-ladies for employees. It's also easier when your customers are normals that aren't asking for gluten-free, non-GMO, certified farm-to-table, blah, blah, blah orders that they are just going to bitch about later on Yelp anyway.

So they must stop selling alcohol too, which is responsible for many times the death and damage of guns and vaping combined. They must do it for the children.


In fact about half the foods they sell are responsible for obesity and diabetes. They too must go. For the children.

I remember during the last few months of the 2016 campaign Trump was injecting new information in his daily rally speeches - the latest details from the DNC and Podesta leaks, and info from Schweitzer's "Clinton Cash" book. IIRC, he even met with Schweitzer to discuss it.

Fast forward3 years and Trump is again leveraging Schweitzer's meticulous research for his book on Biden's and Kerry's sons financial shenanigans.

THIS is how you do it, GOP! You get the facts, you get it from the people who've made a career of digging it up - people like Schweitzer, Fitton - and then you educate the American people on it. Talk about it relentlessly, do not give in no matter how much the MSM-DNC squeal that you're some form f bigot for bringing it up.

I thought that, too. However, polling at 0% with blacks is amazingly bad. He could only be paired with a black candidate like Kamala or Cory. Pair him with lily white fake Indian Warren and things could get very interesting.

Trump has done more with blacks than Warren or Buttigiege - he's meeting with leaders, working on criminal justice reform, talking blue city leaders in Baltimore to task for never really helping those communities. I have no clue if it will make a difference, I just remember how in 2016 Hillary had to buyoff her black critics (DNC gave a huge check to #BLM, black mom night at the convention) in order to keep them from publicly criticizing her.

I don't expect Trump to win the black vote. I fully expect the female black vote to be as lopsided as it was in 2016.

However, I think Trump appeals to black men in certain ways. His demeanor itself seems to appeal to black men.

I could imagine an 80-20 vote split, which would make huge differences in places like Michigan and Minnesota.

I just can't wait for the white liberals to start turning on black men.

Warren needs to do that herself.

She's fighting perceptions on the left that she's a corporate shill instead of the purity of Bernie. Attacking Biden, the most corporate of the candidates in the top tier, might do her two good things. The left could see her as a fighter willing to take down corporate interests within the Democratic Party and it could also weaken Biden. Since she seems to be in second place, currently, there appears to be little downside.

The guns were bought. The money used rightfully belongs to the government, which merely permitted you to use it. Since the money was the government's then what it purchased is, too.

So, strictly, the guns already belong to the government. The meaning of "back" is that we use in "giving back" something borrowed.

Late Thursday, the St. Joseph County, Indiana clerk's office confirmed that South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg's campaign disclosure reports from 2011 were shredded.

Totally legal, but highly unusual considering the records of earlier mayors were readily obtainable.

267 Now Bernie Sanders Wants to Cancel America's Medical Care Debt

--

This is the same OH NOES BANKRUPTCY!!! bullsh*t that Obama pulled as his excuse to pass Obamacare.

"The very concept of medical debt should not exist," Sanders said. "It is immoral and unconscionable that families across the country are finding themselves nearly broke or bankrupt because of crippling medical debt while the health care industry made more than $100 billion in profits last year."

We've discussed it before, but the study they always reference laments bankruptcy due to medical bills. $4200 is the magic number IIRC, and it doesn't matter what your income level is.

So you can make $45K a year and have $4200 in medical bills, a $480K mortgage, $1400 monthly BMW leases, two jet skis, a boat, and $15K in credit card debt, and the $4200 in medical bills is the cause of your bankruptcy.

Shame we don't have any Republicans in Congress to pull the curtain back on this BS.

Step 1: Attractive topless woman in public, freein' the nipples and being all perky and proud

Step 2: A man stares at her beautiful breasts and gets a hard-on.

Step3: "He's harassing MEEEEEEEE!!!" claims the topless woman.

Remember, Trump is really an old-school Democrat. He shifted Republican because 1) opportunity and 2) the Democrats went so far left one entire oar bank is underwater. He just looks halfway conservative because of the Dem cult's push for full-on totalitarianism.

Do NOT get fooled into thinking any of these folks are "turning", or that a "civil war" in the Dem ranks will do anything but give us a left party and a further-left party.

THE QUOTES OF THE DAY


Quote I

“Further, illegal and inadmissible aliens are increasing housing demand and draining resources. Instead of protecting the most vulnerable Americans from the economic impacts of illegal immigration, California has doubled down on sanctuary State and city policies and provided benefits to illegal and inadmissible aliens.” Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, M.D.


Quote II

“Each and every voice is necessary to bring change. My name is Alyssa Wiseman, and I am here as a concerned citizen. As a child, I should not have to worry about my future. But my future is in jeopardy. All of our futures are in jeopardy. Your children’s futures are in jeopardy. We have only 11 years to rectify decades of damage that we have inflicted on our planet. And only 18 months until some damages are irreversible. We no longer have the luxury of time. We do not have the luxury of gradual change. We are in the midst of a global emergency. And we must act fast if we want to survive.” Alyssa Wiseman

Another corporation has gone woke, Trader Joe's.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) had a victory of sorts this week. The animal rights group praised Trader Joe’s after the company decided to redesign some of its product packaging. One major change will be the removal of circus elephants.

PETA told Fox News in a statement that they had previously reached out to Trader Joe’s about their use of circus elephants on the packaging for products like peanuts, toilet paper, and peanut butter. PETA took issue with the images because of the historical “standard practice to beat, shock, chain, and whip elephants” and other animals used in circus performances.”

Before my knee was replaced I officiated three high school sports. Often my weekends were dealing with parents attempting to live vicariously through their children. I still miss reffing quite a bit. The parents are not one of those.


Youth sports officials and referees are quitting their jobs at record rates because of parents’ poor behavior during games, reports said.

The National Federation of State High School Associations said 80 percent of officials quit before they reached the third-year mark on the job.

The Vikings, better fighting through agronomy.

The legendary Viking warriors known as berserkers were renowned for their ferocity in battle, purportedly fighting in a trancelike state of blind rage (berserkergang), howling like wild animals, biting their shields, and often unable to distinguish between friend and foe in the heat of battle. But historians know very little about the berserkers apart from scattered Old Norse myths and epic sagas. One intriguing hypothesis as to the source of their behavior is that the berserkers ingested a specific kind of mushroom with psychoactive properties. Now an ethnobotanist is challenging that hypothesis, suggesting in a recent paper in The Journal of Ethnopharmacology that henbane is a more likely candidate

Is America as racist and worth destroying as some would say? Thoughts and observations by Ammo Grrrll.

Then last Saturday night, we drove 50 miles to a play in Peoria, AZ. Suburban Arizona – the EPICENTER of intolerance, if you believe our betters. We were very early and stopped into a dark little bar for a drink. Two large Mexican bartenders were tending to three lesbian couples, a heterosexual couple, two elderly black men (not together), and a couple of Jewish geezers of late, late middle age. Most of the others seemed to be regulars. Nothing but friendliness, laughter, generous pours, and a very loud jukebox that careened wildly between country and rap. Mr. AG put in the earplugs he carries all the time and nursed his double-Jack.

So how is our rainbow Family of Man doing? Pretty damn well, all slanderous accounts to the contrary. Absent the race hustlers and people for whom stirring the perpetual grievance pot is a lucrative career, most of us get along just fine. And that’s the truth.

Buh-bye Spartacus.

Sen. Cory Booker needs $1.7 million by Sept. 30.

If he doesn't get it, he's likely going to be out of the 2020 presidential campaign, according to a staff memo obtained by NBC News' Alex Seitz-Wald.

"Without a fundraising surge to close out this quarter, we do not see a legitimate long-term path forward," campaign manager Addisu Demissie wrote in the memo. "The next 10 days will determine whether Cory Booker can stay in this race."

“To be fair, this was not the most difficult crime to solve. Both the victim and the deputies simply followed the trailer tracks left behind,” Genius Award Winner.

LAKELAND, Fla. - Thieves left a trail leading to a stolen barbeque grill trailer and the arrest of five people, including a man with three active warrants, Jimbob Bearden, according to a Polk County Sheriff’s Office Facebook post.


A barbeque grill trailer was marked for sale on Sleepy Hill Road in Lakeland, where the owner had chained it and flattened a tire as a precautionary measure against thieves.

Bikers have a long memory. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

One year ago, Daryn Sturch, a nurse, and her daughter came upon an accident involving several motorcyclists of the Milwaukee Iron.

"I stayed with them and did the best I could to triage them and keep them awake and calm," Sturch said, adding that all five bikers involved in the crash had sustained "severe" injuries.

After the accident, Sturch began receiving an outpouring of thank you messages from the bikers associated with Milwaukee Iron.

So, when Sturch announced on Facebook that her daughter was setting up a lemonade stand, one of the bikers saw the post.

117 Nuclear Winter for generations - in addition to Global Cooling."

Woah. So nukes could lead to an ice age?
-------------

Flashback, 1991:

Cornell University astronomer Carl Sagan says Saddam Hussein's orders to torch Kuwaiti oil wells, if carried far enough, could unleash smoke clouds that would disrupt agriculture across South Asia and darken skies around the world.

"You need a very small lowering of the average temperatures of the Northern Hemisphere to have serious consequences for agriculture," Sagan said.

Scientists in Maryland and Colorado say such a disaster would require fires at hundreds of wells burning for months, but they agreed the potential exists in Kuwait for a "very catastrophic" environmental event.

A major nuclear war would throw a bunch of dust into the air - like say Karakatoa did - cooling the hemisphere it happens in for maybe a year or two.


But Sagan and co intentionally claimed it would be more serious and cause something like an ice age.

He (uncle) used to fly down to Houston and land at Red's HQ, which was right on the airport taxiway. Red had his own 727 (or was it a 737 - I forgot) (?) parked right at his HQ, ready to go at a moments notice.

Forget all the context that makes any Trump request to Ukraine to share or pursue info about wrongdoing by American officials. Even shorn of context, it is a perfectly reasonable request. Not inappropriate in the slightest.


Americans committing crimes and/or committing massive improprieties under color of authority overseas do *not* acquire special immunity by being political rivals of anyone. Just as those taking up arms do not get special immunity in the context of ongoing war - they get smoked if possible.


And Biden's Ukraine misdeeds, shorn of context, are breath-taking, I recommend you try it some time.

Romney seems phony to us; but he is sincere in his way. We have here discussed the role of Islamic apocalyptic, in ISIS. I see no reason we cannot do that for LDS.

Brigham Young in 1855 delivered that is known as the White Horse Prophecy. "when the Constitution of the United States hangs, as it were, upon a single thread, they will have to call for the 'Mormon' Elders to save it from utter destruction; and they will step forth and do it".

I suggest that the Senate is where G-d has called Romney to play kingmaker. Or so Romney believes.

Progressive school districts are telling their students that they, personally, will die from climate change Unless Something Is Done.

Furthermore, these school districts are normalizing mental illness - the students are being told that if they are depressive and hysterical over climate change, that something is wrong with them.

We do not have the luxury of gradual change.

In other words, democratic political processes won't work fast enough. They are preparing the field for a Democratic President to rule by decree.

3 public schools in San Francisco took kids as young as 5 to march in a "Close The Camps" leftist protest. Kids had been taught @realDonaldTrump is a racist that hates immigrants, prepared protest signs at school & had scripts of anti-Trump chants!

177 Progressive school districts are telling their students that they, personally, will die from climate change Unless Something Is Done.

One encouraging thing about Portland's "Climate Strike" was that the crowds of students protesting were overwhelmingly white. You didn't see many black students or Asian students.

Fortunately, they had better things to do.

188 22 Red Adair was a great American hero.
Posted by: ALH

The real Red Adair was quite a character, and quite wealthy and successful.

My late uncle used to make machined parts for his team they used to cap well heads (after putting out oil fires). He (uncle) used to fly down to Houston and land at Red's HQ, which was right on the airport taxiway. Red had his own 727 (or was it a 737 - I forgot) (?) parked right at his HQ, ready to go at a moments notice.
Posted by: Bozo Conservative....lost in America at September 22, 2019 10:07 PM (hVpH7)


I had the very great pleasure of meeting Mr. Adair in Kuwait, at the oilfields. he called me little lady, bought me dinner at the firefighter's chow hall, and gave me a Red Adair belt buckle, as 'a little sumpin' to remember him by." He and the teams turned that mess into usable oil fields in 9 months, about five years sooner than all the reporters were screaming it was going to take to put out all the fires.

203 Elizabeth Warren the platonic ideal of bitchy shrew?

The only reason why Warren was elected to the Senate in 2012 was that Obama was at the top of the ticket.

She is very reminiscent of Hillary in her lack of likability.

Also, wear white pants or skirt or dress, and sit on an unwrapped chocolate bar(mebbe something with peanuts) during dinner and get up and turn around during dinner.

And be sure not to think of any of this during dinner.

George Will: Conservatives Would Win If Trump Loses
https://t.co/k89pPKJWUF?amp=1

Would conservatives be better served by Trump losing in 2020 and having to find an actual policy agenda going forward?

Yes, yes, and yes. There's no question about that.

What would that look like?

You would get arguments outside the political class from people like Yuval Levin and hopefully me. Within the political class, people would start paying attention to those arguments. Postwar conservatism was a bookish movement - Richard Weaver's Ideas Have Consequences and Friedrich Hayek and Milton Friedman - that evolved into a network of intellectual think tanks like American Enterprise Institute, the Cato Institute, and the Heritage Foundation.

I think we'll have that again. There will be younger writers and younger politicians, and we'll have a genuine fight to see what comes next. There are signs of intelligent life in Congress, which knows it has delegated its job to presidents who will not always be progressives. But first, we have to clear the ground and remove this awful presence from our lives.

335 "For all the scaremongering, their were some great nuclear war movies in the early 1980s."

If you're into alternate history, a kinda interesting site to check out is 1983: Doomsday. You may remember the story of Soviet Col. Stanislav Petrov, who, on Sept. 26, 1983, saw four incoming American missiles on his radar screen, and (correctly) reported them as a technical error rather than a real attack.

Now, consider what would have happened had Col. Petrov NOT been there that day, and someone else who lacked his instincts had assumed the attack to be genuine, alerted his superiors, and started the ball rolling on all out nuclear war?

That's the premise of 1983: Doomsday, which traces, in more or less real time, the reorganization of the world's societies and nations in the post-World War III era. Even now, more than 35 years later, what used to be the US, USSR, China, and Britain are still broken up into numerous smaller states, and technology and communications are just getting back to something perhaps resembling the pre-war "normal."

Take a drive up Hwy 99 in the towns south of Seattle, and you'll see massive - MASSIVE! - apartment blocks going up simultaneously.

I shudder to think of them filled all at once. It's going to be a multi-city crime wave.

They're all being slapped up in rapid succession... For. A. Plan.

348 *plain piano hymn*

My dearest Annebelle,

It is with a heavy grimness that I address you from the scorching Nevada desert. My prayers of finding aliens have gone unanswered, and the toll has been more than my heart can take. Some of my company have been arrested while poking the fence. Others have become lost and confused in the heat, though 'shrums may have been a factor. My companion Taylor has texted me saying he has found a way on to the property, but has been sent into retreat by "crowd-control microwave beams". I have heard they are very painful.

Yours in all things,
Ken Burns

352 Same as I said about IKEA- the "get woke" moves make sense for certain retailers, and Trader Joe's is one. These kinds of stores are the churches of the Wine Mom. They exist as status signals for the white upper middle class woman, for whom lefty virtue signalling is also paramount. For her, leftism is a cultural signifier only slightly less important than which European car her husband bought her to drive Paolo around in.

Getting woke plays right to their audience.

367 Found the best deal for the PACT3 timer at Brownell's.

Like they already didn't get vast sums my scavenged pennies!

So, there'll be at least one Match Timer at the Texas Mo Meet.

And so, we will have timed and scored Mozambique Drills.

I have a Match Sequence designed, which puts the six-shooters and auto-shuckers on an equal footing for this. And, it'll move quite a few shooters through the match, with minimal time-drag or delay.

Winner will win Mo Meet Braggin' Rights, and a Weasel Write Up, I'm sure!

Shooter Ready!

And I've tossed historical things in the mix. We've played for over 30 years as a group and I have been playing since the late 70's. Good times had by all. And it's an excuse to drink soda and eat junk food for the weekend.

455 So, saw Mark Knopfler at the Santa Barbara Bowl on Friday. The old man shuffles across the stage rather than struts, but he's still brings it. Backing him were ten other musicians, all old white guys. But, among them they played 49 different instruments, so there's your damn diversity. The venue was spectacular, and the weather was perfect. The people in the row in front of us were like fidgety school children, constantly moving seats or getting up to get more beer. The ladies behind us were chatty Cathy's, but fortunately the music was mostly loud enough to drown them out.
Marks playing and singing were spectacular, and his banter was entertaining, concise, and devoid of politics. He said his plan was to keep performing till he trips on stage and can't get up, so if you ever have a chance to see him, I'd highly recommend it.

Visited with my neighbor, the USCG Shipfitter, just this afternoon.

He will be welding up the hanging bar and hinge system, in order that Weasel's steel plates will quickly return to register after a hit, ready for the shooter's next round, nearly instantly.

Beats the hell out of chain-hung plates on the rifle line. Means that Weasel's precious instruction time won't be wasted in waiting on chain hung plates to finish oscillating after a hit.

I've got some wood to pre-cut before the Mo Meet, too. I think the attendees will be well pleased with the Shooter's Smorgarsboard they'll find laid out before them.

469 Tonight's ONT has been brought to you by Form.


If you look reallllly carefully, you can see that the lady golfer is using a 5-wood -- and yet her gaze is toward a point in the distance not really high enough over the horizon to be looking at a perfectly struck 5-wood shot. instead, she's looking at the height that perhaps a 3-wood ball's arc would take.

This means that although she may have had good "form" in her swing, she probably topped the ball a bit -- not so badly that is ruined the shot, but just enough that she missed "the sweet spot" upon contact.

Slightly topping a 5-wood isn't actually that bad of a thing to do -- the ball will not reach its full height, but instead will go out straighter and (in some instances) even further that well-stuck 5-wood shot. But going further isn't always what you as the golfer wanted -- which is usually why you chose a 5-wood in the first place, instead of a driver.(i.e. a 1-wood). She may have overshot the fairway on a dogleg, if that was why she was hitting a 5-wood, or overshot the green on a par-3 (notice she's teeing off). But she looks satisfied with her shot, so she'll probably be OK.

Even if everyone in the USA moved into caves and we immediately shut down all energy usage and all carbon burning forever, living off foraged berries and carrion, it would have nearly zero effect on the carbon in the atmosphere -- because the US is not causing the "problem" (if one insists on defining it as a problem, which it isn't).

The "problem" is being caused primarily by four countries -- China and India (due to ungodly amounts of coal burning) and Indonesia and Brazil (due to diminishing extent of their rainforests).

And whatever manufacturing the US scales back on here domestically, where we do it relatively "clean"ly, will be taken up by China instead, where they do it "dirt"ily.

Whatever restrictions that Congress puts on energy usage here, therefore, will actually INCREASE the amount of carbon going into the atmosphere, on a global scale.

So even the leftist Climate Alarmists, if they were honest (which they aren't), should be in favor of amping UP the US economy, not in favor of throttling it.

Needless to say, all of this is a hoax and a farce, because more carbon in the atmosphere means more plant growth worldwide (a documented real phenomenon known as "global greening"), which brings with it not just "carbon sequestration" (thereby naturally eliminating the "problem" through self-regulated balancing) but actually a fabulous INCREASE in biodiversity, all over the planet.

Ultimately, it doesn't matter in the slightest what laws and regulations congress passes, not merely for the reasons you accurately cite (slow pace, and incompetence) but because nothing we do here on this continent is relevant to the issue, even if our government was quick and efficient in getting things done.

Tropical rainforests are not "the lungs of the planet". They are essentially closed systems. The vegetative material in typically short-lived plants are worked on by beetles and microorganisms that produce...CO2. Tropical rainforest soils are typically poor in nutrients, the rapid turnover of plant species is what allows them to appear lush and green. More plants, more decaying plant material--more CO2. Or less and less.

486 A good exercise for anyone frustrated by our lack of space capabilities is the exploration of the world via the oceans using sailing ships.

It took quite a few hundred years for humans to go from the square rigged deep hulled ocean going craft to fully explore the various places unavailable by other means of travel.

Even after knowing the value of exploitable resources it still took many years for trade (out and return) to take place on any scale.

Many colonies were lost through disease, lack of planning and enemy action.

And all this in conditions survivable via normal activities of humans. (air readily available, food and water with some planning but usually available locally)

For space travel we've got to take everything we need to survive with us and manage to propel ourselves. A heavy burden both size and technologically indeed.

And there was/is no real need to do this exploration. Keep in mind that it wasn't until farming had reached a point where more people could survive and the population began to increase was exploration for the purpose of colonization begun in larger degree.

When we have need of the special conditions of space for vital products (micro gravity, vacuum, lack of weather effects and quiescent geological conditions) and for exporting excess population will the drive for better vehicles in space become large enough to get a sizable minority into space. (our only really feasible answer to wayward asteroid collisions)

Once we begin to travel more and more in intraplanetary space will better and faster means of propulsion be invented/developed. It may require the conditions of space for some of this technology to be discovered.

I personally believe that when we reach the heliosphere (that gravitic boundary at the edge of the influence of the gravitational pull of our star) will we be able to perform the experiments needed to understand gravity fully so as to derive ways to control that force. (my personal belief is that at the interface between gravity fields of the stars will be found a physics that is not discoverable surrounded by gravity as we are and that travel between stars within a human time frame will begin)

So although we didn't plant a colony on the moon, or get our flying car, we did take the first hesitant and expensive steps proving it could be done. Now we just need the reasons to do so for profit.

Agreed.

The REAL story, which NO ONE wants to discuss, is that the LAND AREA of earth is a very minor player in what goes on in the atmosphere. It is the OCEANS, covering 71% of the planet, where all the "heavy lifting" of atmospheric self-regulation happens. As you correctly note, the world's jungles are NOT the "lungs" of the planet -- instead, photosynthesis in the ocean by plankton etc is where all the oxygen is coming from, on a scale that dwarfs any terrestrial contribution.

I don't understand how there can even be a "heliosphere" -- a "boundary" beyond which there is no gravitational effect from the Sun.

According to General Relativity, every bit of matter in existence warps the space-time continuum, such that the sun's gravitation effect should in theory extend throughout the entire universe, with (admittedly) exponentially diminishing effect the further out you go. In fact, a single neutron 14 billion light-years away should, in theory, warp space-time everywhere, such that (with precise enough measuring devices) we ought to be able to detect it.

If this is all the case (which I believe it to be), how can there be some arbitrary boundary at which the sun's gravitational pull reaches zero? Perhaps it gets so small that it is of negligible consequence, but as far as I know it can never be "zero" gravity.

Count me in - the Moron Travel Guide is an idea whose time has come! May I suggest we start with the good ole US of A. We could have a chapter for each state, with top 5 cities and top 5 restaurants and top five attractions/sites for morons.

The heliosphere has nothing to do with the Sun's gravitational field. It has to do with the Sun's solar wind and magnetic field.

Basically it is a bubble around the sun, of a radius of about 11 billion miles, that is "dominated" by the sun's solar wind and magnetic field.

The boundary is known as the "heliopause" and this is the boundary of intersteller space, where the Sun's plasma domination ends.

Voyager I crossed that boundary a while back and the data it was sending back showed the expected change in the plasma environment.

Voyager 2 crossed the heliopause in November of 2018, I see. Voyager I crossed it back 2012.

So both Voyagers are now truly in interstellar space, having left the solar system, whose boundary is defined by said heliopause.

526 A lot of holes in the desert, and a lot of problems are buried in those holes. But you gotta do it right. I mean, you gotta have the hole already dug before you show up with a package in the trunk. Otherwise, you're talking about a half-hour to forty-five minutes worth of digging. And who knows who's gonna come along in that time? Pretty soon, you gotta dig a few more holes. You could be there all fuckin' night.

530 Saturday Mrs Hades bought an IWB holster for her new toy.

Yesterday Mrs Hades put on her new holster, loaded up her new toy and wore it to the range. After the range she loaded it back up, put it in its holster and we spent the rest of the day doing various mundane things.
Unfortunately today she has to go to work (she's a teacher) so she can't take it with her.
I also got a new barrel for the Glock 36 and put 100 rounds through it
without incident so hopefully the FTE issues with this gun are over.
It's still a handful to shoot though, so I will continue to carry the
19.
It was a pretty good day.

Before my knee was replaced I officiated three high school sports. Often my weekends were dealing with parents attempting to live vicariously through their children. I still miss reffing quite a bit. The parents are not one of those.


My predecessor as Scoutmaster for our troop admonished me before I assumed the responsibility that I would have far fewer interpersonal problems among the youths, for whom the troop existed, than from their parents and guardians. He certainly was right.

There have been incidents of significant discord among the adults over the twenty years that I have been involved with the troop. Every now and then their echoes will reverberate among current adult members, usually from two up to four individuals. When that happens, one of the immediate thoughts that comes to my mind is, "JFC, that incident is OVER, its outcome was SETTLED, and there's no damn good that'll result from continuing to SNIPE at one another because of it. GROW UP AND KNOCK IT OFF."

Gun Thread: Quick Draw [Weasel]

Quick Draw scaled.jpg


Last week we talked about range time, training and practice. When I first started shooting handguns, my weekly training and practice routine was to setup at an indoor range and spend 45 minutes to an hour trying to shoot the middle out of a paper silhouette about 20 feet away. How long did it take for that to become boring? About 15 minutes. But I stuck with it, Bro's and Bro-ettes, because I was training you see! And after practicing my standing motionless at 7 yards drill for months, I got to be pretty damn good! I'd set up the target the exact same way at 7 yards every time - I'd read somewhere that was the average distance of a lot of self-defense encounters - adjust the lighting just so, and proceed to make a big ol' raggedy hole in the middle of the target right where you're supposed to shoot the bad guys, or 'perps' as me and the boys called 'em. Eventually, I was able to make even smaller raggedy holes, thanks to all my practice and training!

But was I really accomplishing very much? Was I accomplishing anything at all? Let's find out below, shall we?

I had to be accomplishing something, because after all, my groups were getting smaller so I must be ready for some self-defens'n! I was at the point where the very next time someone who needed to be shot stood absolutely still directly in front of me at 20 feet or so, and I got all of the shooting crap out of my range bag and loaded up, I was pretty confident in my mad small hole making skillz! Yeah. Ridiculous. There wasn't anything really wrong with what I was doing, but I definitely wasn't accomplishing much more than practicing grip mechanics, trigger pull and sight alignment. All very important fundamentals, mind you, but also not a very likely scenario for a real world situation, now is it?

Here's an article on why little groups might not always be your friend, or at least why they may not represent the greatest training bang for your buck after you become generally proficient with your firearm.

I alluded to this last week, but most people start with an objective in mind when they take up the shooting sports. For some it is purely recreational with a vague desire to develop at least some level of competency with a firearm, while others have a more serious and specific self-defense application in mind. For some it may be a combination of all of the above, or even some other objective altogether. Whatever the case, it's helpful to keep your reasons in mind as you go to the range. Range time is practice time, even if you are simply practicing the skill of having fun.

So here's a question; if you include self-defense among your reasons for shooting, have you tried drawing from a holster and placing a couple of rounds in quick succession on target? If you haven't practiced this, and if your range allows it, you should try it sometime. All of a sudden you might find your raggedy single hole is much harder to replicate. In fact, you may find you have trouble hitting the target with any consistency at all. Uh oh! My skillz is gone!

Maybe not. If your objective is self defense, what you're really practicing are the skills necessary to stop the bad guy, right? The cops aren't going to score your shot placement if, God forbid, you have to shoot somebody. You're shooting to stop a threat, not to impress range babes with your one raggedy-hole bad-assery. I think most people agree that two or three shots inside about a six-inch center mass circle represents a pretty good start, and if it doesn't, then just keep shooting. This is training to a specific competency, and it needs to be practiced.

Again, you need to be certain your range allows this sort of practice, and if it does, consider adding some reality training to your routine. If it doesn't, you can usually get away with at least starting from a low-ready position. Don't go all nutty and spastic and try to be Marshal Dillon on Day 1, but rather slowly and methodically practice drawing and placing your sights on the target. This is something that is perfect to practice at home in front of a mirror wearing your Superman underwear and cape, with an unloaded! gun. Start ridiculously slowly drawing the weapon and acquiring the target, then making the weapon 'safe' and returning it to the holster. When you go to the range, now clothed and cape-less, practice the same drill and then slowly incorporate live fire. Do not start out practicing some sort of quick-draw business, your speed and proficiency will come with time. Some ranges even have programmable lanes which will present the target to the shooter for a couple of seconds based on a random timer, and these are an excellent training tool.

But what if your range doesn't allow this? What to do? You may be able to find that International Defensive Pistol Association, or IDPA, matches are being held in your area. These matches consist of 'stages' where you compete in scenarios designed to simulate real-world situations. In these matches you will practice movement, shooting, reloading and all sorts of things. If competition isn't your thing, don't worry about scores, although they are an excellent way to measure improvement. If you cannot find an IDPA match, there are a number of other organizations that put on the same sort of events, so just look around. As the first link below mentions, even tactical competition doesn't replicate the real world environment, but in my opinion, it is a great training option you might want to explore.

So what do you all think? Have you incorporated any real world elements in your training, or are you more of a stand-and-plink sort of a shooter? Have any of you participated in an IDPA style match, and if so, what was your experience?

Programming Note: I'll be attending a fabulous and luxurious social event this evening, but I'll try and check in periodically. Try not to burn the place down, and no parties, 'kay?

This week I'd like to give a shout-out to all of my pals in the F-Class shooting community, who are currently wrapping up 8 days of competition at the 2019 U.S. National Mid and Long-Range Championships in Raton, New Mexico. This year, 268 competitors met to compete against themselves, each other, and the wind in the New Mexico high desert. These guys and gals are some of the very best shooters in the world. I've been following the scores and range reports this week, and the conditions during some relays have been absolutely brutal, with shifting winds in excess of 35 mph. Imagine trying to hit a 5 inch circle at 1,000 yards in that, then imagine trying to do it 20 times in a row during a match. It's a testament to the skill and dedication of all involved, who have been practicing and preparing for the event all year. Congratulations to all of the competitors!

17 No range time this week. I'm really becoming a sloth in that regard. I did manage to twist on my Galil barrel, and now I find it is short chambered by a couple of thousandths. I need to find someone to finish ream it just a turn or two.

And I got a little further on my ultralight build for Mrs928. I need to finish it by Christmas I think. She is right handed but massively left eye dominate so I will have to set it up ambie. Here's were it stands:

https://flic.kr/s/aHsmHd9pzF

I still need a BCG and a gas plug. I should have had the lower parts kit already but Combat Armory messed up and sent me an AR upper instead. Odd. Someone out there is also going WTH over getting a lower parts kit instead of an upper. I'll try to sort that out this week. They might just let me keep the upper.

Heh. I really am. I'm more of a 30 cal guy and she hates my heavy milsurps. She likes pistols but I want her to develop a liking for rifles so I'm shooting (no pun intended) for a sub 5lb rifle, loaded, with a straight 20rd aluminum mag. The upper and lower I started with are magnesium from Fostech. They are lighter than air.

26
My local range over in Midlothian is a no-draw range, which makes things a bit sucky.

I decided to concentrate on the first shot, on the theory that the first shot is the most difficult to get right, and also the most important in a real life social situation.

Starting from low ready, I'd bring the pistol up smoothly and fire a single round as I got that center mass index on the silhouette target. Bring the pistol down slowly to reset at low ready, taking several seconds. Then repeat. After a bunch of practice, you can get that first shot off damned quickly, and with decent combat accuracy.

That also keeps the range folks happy since I'm not doing fast double-taps, and I'm keeping the muzzle downrange.

Posted by: IllTemperedCur at September 22, 2019 07:20 PM (e0p0c)

27 "rather slowly and methodically practice drawing and placing your sights on the target"


Actually, start with point shooting, imo. Understanding that you, as a human, pretty accurately nail something you point at with your index finger (your trigger finger, your booger hook). Work on shooting by _pointing_, working backward to a retention position and point shoot, then work the issue of drawing to retention position *safely* (yes, slowly and methodically).

Posted by: GWB at September 22, 2019 07:20 PM (T3K6c)

28 i was having a fit because i couldn't find the bolts to put the barrel on the HS...

until i discovered they are retained by the receiver when you take the barrel off.

now i have to contact Styer for some torque info on the gub, because i accidentally loosened a receiver bolt... DOH!

i have the scope and mount on the gun now, so we can check eye relief, then i'll do the actual mount and torque later this week.

then i can FINALLY get it out to the range and make noise while trying to zero it and see if the barrel needs a "break in"...

the -10 from the factory says "no". we shall see.

29 Damn little shooting on duty day at the range last week. No steel shooting from the holster, ahead of the line, as I like to do on one of the small ranges. Too busy. Who effed up and opened the gate?


A bit of rested and off-hand shooting with a Mosin, milsurp ammo. Fairly happy with the result, been a while since I shot one of those. 3/4 of the hits inside the black circle [8" wide? not sure, maybe 1O"] is fine. Off-hand about half as good. Need to spend serious time practicing off-hand, kneeling, prone. Iron sights.


A few beautiful 19O3s there to torment me. And another guy [like last month] with a home-built 9mikemike AR-platform light/short rifle, very nice. Fancy trigger [allowed very rapid fire], piston buffer took what was already de minimis recoil and reduced it further.

Posted by: rhomboid at September 22, 2019 07:21 PM (QDnY+)

30 I practice basics at the indoor range. I have an outdoor range where I practice drawing and movement. I can hit 2 inch groups at 9 yards either hand (I practice with both), one- or two-handed indoors.

I am somewhat - and sometimes considerably - less accurate outdoors pushing on time or movement.

My primary tactic for a gunfight will be awareness. I'm not going to win a ol' style western gunfight.

Shooting some of the steel competitions around here will be my next challenge.

PS. Can't imagine shooting precision at 1000 yards with that kind of wind. My hat's off to those folks just for having the stones to try.

35 I have taken InSight's General Defensive Handgun course which does perzactkly what is described in the post -- goes in stages from draw to aim to fire to reholster. At least two instructors on the gun line to prevent painful brain seizures and make sure everyone goes home with the same number of toes they showed up with. I like it because it takes place over two days and allows good habits to get reinforced. There is a real difference to draw and fire. Also trains that sometimes you draw and do NOT fire. They also train shoot and move, so you don't train yourself to sit there and invite return fire to one place.

For what they cost I should get a happy ending. $90 for the gas block I want and a cheap $160 for the BCG.

41 I have pistols strictly for self defense and so I am content with MOM from 0 to 20 ft without using the sights or adopting a shooting stance. I practice a shot from the hip clearing the holster, slide up tight for another shot our of my armpit and then extend the arm for the third shot.

Posted by: Grump928(C) at September 22, 2019 07:29 PM (yQpMk)

42 The best investment I picked up for shooting practice is a shot timer. At 7 yards I try to get the first round off within 1.5 seconds from the holster and deliver accurate shots with about 0.3 - 0.35 second splits.
The upper thoracic has a lot of things that don't react well to gunfire so my training goal is to deliver accurate rounds there as quickly as possible.

43 I took that "Why little groups might not be your friend" article to heart.
Luckily, I can shoot in my backyard so I don't have to worry about R.O.s freaking out.
Drawing and shooting from lots of positions, motion, distance. Two center mass, one head. Reloading, malfunction, etc.
Very eye-opening, and fun. Need lots more practice.

45 Restall had a theory on the effect of guns in the Spanish Conquest. His theory was: not much. At first.

Cortes had guns but he had guns made in 1515 Cuba. They were for sh!t in long range. For long range you'd fire a volley, which like longbow arrows would hit some rando in the onrushing horde; in the meantime, you were dodging about ten actual arrows from said horde. Advantage: arrows. Oh, and gunpowder gets soggy in humid climates like, say, the Mexican Gulf Coast.

Cannon was a thing too, i guess... except that you had to schlep those things up 8000 feet of Mexican antiplano to use them.

Restall thought that Cortes' guns were best as defensive weapons, if the Spaniards were already cut off from (Tlaxcaltec) reinforcements and were being swarmed by armed Mexica.

What really made the difference was horse, at Otumba (thanks Tom Servo). That and the aforementioned Tlaxcaltecs.

47 Used to do great shoot/move drills, against both steel and paper silhouette targets, when my buddy was ROing with me [he moved to TX]. He was a SEAL for over a quarter century. He'd set up stages where we'd have to move a certain way [don't hug "walls" too closely, they tend to catch/channel enemy fire], always take cover for reloading.


Don't carry, so the draw is not a big focus, but do focus on accuracy in these improvised tactical stages. Big fun.



Posted by: rhomboid at September 22, 2019 07:32 PM (QDnY+)

48 Really good drill called the "1R1" - start with a full mag and and empty mag. Insert full mag, cycle your slide (puts a round in the chamber). Do a mag change putting the empty mag in the gun and the full mag on your belt - remember the gun is hot. Aim at the target and start your timer. On the beep, fire. Your slide locks back, mag change and fire again. Make your weapon safe and holster. Your time is from the beep-until-second-shot. Remember the gun has a round in the chamber. Placing an empty mag into the gun and the full mag back on your belt. Repeat. A g17 can do 8 reps on 1 full mag.

For more fun, mix in a couple of dummy rounds. when you get a malfunction, tap, rack and roll, then take the second shot. Your time is still beep-to-second-shot.

Offer to load mags for your friends. If you want some extra fun, put two dummy rounds next to each other.

For even more fun, load up several mags - say 5, some full, some not full, mix in some dummy rounds, and do some sprints and shoot from cover.

I have been shooting these drills using 3x5 cards as the target at 7 and 10 yards. Only card hits count, keep shooting until you hit the card twice.

This is exactly what I had typed up to post, but then I refreshed and saw that you'd posted it already. But I'll post it anyhow.

None of the ranges near me allow draw and fire drills, unless you're there for a class that includes it. And two of the three require 2-3 seconds between shots to keep out people who are just there to make a lot of noise, I guess.

Since I can't really practice draw or follow-up shots, I've been working on presentation and sight acquisition. Starting from compressed ready (pistol level and downrange, between waist and chest height, elbows bent with the pistol pulled in), pick a point on the target and raise the pistol to firing height and press out towards the target while visually acquiring the front sight. Fire when it's lined up, and follow through to acquire the same picture after recoil. I also download the magazines with a different number of rounds, so I have to reload during the string, and I don't know when it'll be.

I train for very close contact. I assume that I will have little warning and little room so I don't want to get in the habit of extending my arm and having the weapon within grabbing reach of the assailant. Honestly, if they are 50 feet away (and I see people practicing this) I'm going to run for it and seek cover, defying them to hit a fear-speeded moving target.

I've had range guys look when I was shooting fast but when they see I'm delivering accurate hits they leave me alone. At least at ranges by me they're probably just trying to stop the clowns from shooting the tracks etc. The closer range to my house has bullet marks in the ceiling directly above some of the lanes. :O

Honestly, that's the best Plan A (when Plan 0: "be somewhere else" has failed). I once took some classes with an instructor who said that there are exactly three valid responses to a threat and they should be used in this order:

1) run away
2) get help
3) fight like a tiger

Notice that "proportional response" or "shoot 'em in the knee" are not choices.

I think I'd recommend it for the first shot. I would suspect that nothing in that purse is going to stop a bullet or deflect it too much at likely pistol distance. It might get warm in there though depending on what she was shooting.

I'm no expert but it seems that shooting through the purse is only a safe bet at contact distance. Also, if she has a bunch of shit in her purse, things could get in the trigger guard, or in the way of the hammer (if there is one), or impinge the slide as it cycles the next round. If it's a specialty purse designed specifically for concealed carry of a handgun then these may be less of a concern.

68 90 percent of carry time (everyday) it's on the right hip. Feels the most natural whether a little Ruger .357 LCR or a steel 19ll. Holsters are either all leather or some sort of kydex or other synthetic, always use a real belt which holds up under firearm and at least 2 extra mags. And no I don't practice pistol at 50 feet. That's shotgun territory as far as I'm concerned.

70 Got my range time in yesterday, as my observance of International Peace Day, mostly as lolgf commie UN, but also in the spirit of that Latin tag about if you want peace prepare for war.

Weasel, you make excellent points up top, really needs saying and repeating for anyone who aspires to effective defense with a gun.
I have to work at keeping it in mind myself !

When I do my range report here it sometimes catches the old bullseye shooter in my head weird, you're telling people you stayed in the 8 ring of a big silhouette at 21 feet and feeling good about it ?
Yes, one handed, with a short barreled pistol, after running ... yeah, I think that's pretty okay.
If this had been real self defense every one of those shots would have, at minimum, seriously inconvenienced an aggressor.

Anyway, that said, this week was the usual quick run-through, 10 from the j-frame and the mini .22, a dozen from the p290, and since we're going up North next month, 6 rounds of .44 mag from the 629 which will accompany me in addition to the usual.

all in the 8 ring.

fired the .44 at 30-35 feet, 2 handed.

One is a carry purse but I'm not sure I'm crazy about the system It does have a separate pocket that holds the weapon, a Ruger 38 revolver (loaded plus P's defense rounds )) she is proficient with. easy zipper and there was an instance she had her hand in her purse holding the grip, but thank God false alarm.

76 There has to be a purse with a pocket designed to hold a pistol that keeps it separate from all the other things that are carried in a purse like handkerchiefs, make up, hair products, spare wrenches, lighters, phone and charger, flares, water purification tablets, compass, mess kit, breakfast bars, fruit, canned meat, and books.

78 I think I'd recommend it for the first shot. I would suspect that nothing in that purse is going to stop a bullet or deflect it too much at likely pistol distance. It might get warm in there though depending on what she was shooting.

Posted by: Grump928(C) at September 22, 2019 07:44 PM (yQpMk)

Well if she has to then yep, through the purse. Like you said if its a long ways away then run. Both her purses have a separate pocket and so nothing goes in there but the revolver. Through the purse is like your shot from the hip imho. Hell, may the only shot and so closer is better in that case as Insom said. Up close, just keep pulling the trigger. Seconds and others should go through the same hole.

Yep. That's why they call it "retention position".
Draw, pivot the pistol to point toward the target (booger hook still pointing, not pulling), then pull it up and push out (various techniques for 2d hand, whether it's up then out or up AND out, etc.), bringing it to normal shooting position, then aligning a proper sight picture. And as long as possible, the weapon stays close in, **always pointed toward the target**, so you can put the booger hook in and go bang if you need to (like he closed on you).

104 Last year, late fall Shooting Buddy and I did a quick practice shooting-through-jacket-pocket with a couple of thrift-store coats.

One shot, okay, within the silhouette at 3 yards mostly, second shot sometimes ok, sometimes got involved with the lining for a rather hard-to-clear failure. Revolvers definitely better than autos.

One time I got all 5 rounds off from the j-frame, pocket was smoldering but no actual flame.

105 I am leary of the blockyness of the nose but I will have to try from a holster.. Fired plenty but not from a draw..

Posted by: Catman at September 22, 2019 08:06 PM (4HMlb)

106 Catman,

A lot of what you pick depends on how much time and effort you wish to spend on shooting. An N-Frame revolver or something like a Ruger GP 100 fits most mitts. Revolvers have a simpler manual of arms for those that shoot sporadically but have limited capacity and both the these would be difficult to conceal. These are also a bit more expensive that a plastic fantastic.

There are lot of semi-autos and quite a few in .40 that are available cheap right now as former police issued. Glocks, Smith and Wesson M&P's, and used Sigs can be found in that category and these will fit larger hands. Look for one with changeable backstraps to accommodate larger hands which will be the Smith M&P or the newer Sig poly line. The Ruger American also has a large sized grip but unsure about those in other than 9mm as I haven't seen one personally. Also the Beretta 92 is one that fits large hands well as is aka U.S. Military M9 Handgun.

Talon Gun Grips can also be added to some of those that don't have those backstraps.

The semi-autos are easier to shoot and have higher capacity. They vary on concealability as those that are more concealable are more difficult to shoot more or less because they are smaller and have more recoil. They do have a more difficult manual of arms and require a bit more practice to function, especially those with safeties. Good luck.

Gotta go now, work awaits.

118 Don't forget dry fire training for defensive skills too.

Drawing from your concealed holster, while laying on the ground after a thug knock down, and using both left and right hands to draw and fire, getting to your knees while firing then a full standing position all the while dry firing your weapon. The scenarios you can come up with are endless.....out of bed, out the tub, out of your car. You get the idea.

On a happy note, I used my new target hit indicator by MagnetoSpeed out to 600 yards this week and it worked great.

120 Cortes had guns but he had guns made in 1515 Cuba. They were for sh!t in long range. For long range you'd fire a volley, which like longbow arrows would hit some rando in the onrushing horde; in the meantime, you were dodging about ten actual arrows from said horde. Advantage: arrows. Oh, and gunpowder gets soggy in humid climates like, say, the Mexican Gulf Coast.

The guns would punch through any armor the Aztecs could come up with, I think. European armor was pretty good at stopping European arrows, and Aztec arrows weren't in the same league.

The idea that bows and arrows were superior to early guns has been kicked around by historians for a long, long time, but with few exceptions the cultures that had access to both preferred guns. The exceptions were horse cultures that favored light cavalry, for whom rate of fire outweighed range and penetration concerns.

People always look at rate of fire, and tend 1) underestimate the effectiveness of armor against muscle-powdered weapons and 2) underestimate the range and accuracy of early firearms.

124 Hello, gub threaders!

No trips to the range this week, just maintenance.

After the rear sights of the Mauser C96 literally flew off and smacked me in the head last week, I ordered a replacement leaf spring.

It arrived with commendable dispatch from Numrich's yesterday. Today I installed it.

Based on the difficulty I had in cinching that thing down, I'm pretty confident it will stay in place.

I spent much of today doing a deep clean of the C96, followed by a routine cleaning of the Webley. I'll say this for revolvers - easy to maintain. I get why the Brits were so unwilling to go for autoloaders.

One thing I've noticed in the C96 is that it's not cycling 100 percent in function tests. I'm thinking I need to replace the sear. I have a spare, but didn't feel like getting into the lock mechanism to swap it out. Maybe next week.

Current SWAT training is: two to the groin, followed by a shot to the head, because the head comes down and forward after a shot to the groin.

Heard this directly from a SWAT trainer. The idea behind the training is defeating body armor.

Haven't the school shootings in recent years happened at schools with metal detectors, or the shooter easily otherwise avoided any screening?

Browning Buckmark. I've got a UDX Ultimate Rosewood, but that's just 'cause she's so pretty.

Thing about the Buckmark, is that the grip (in the non-finger-grooved version) is a near duplicate of the vaunted 1911. And the safety, slide release and magazine release are all in the 1911 locations.

This, along with the fact that it weighs in about the 1911's heft, and that the grip "feel" is much closer to the actual 1911 than is Ruger's 22/45, favors the Browning.


But when you add the proverbial "breaks like a glass rod" trigger, and the VERY superior fit, finish and craftsmanship, and it's an undisputed win for the Browning Buckmark.

Except, that is, for the price.

The Browning is going to cost more. $100 more, in most cases.

But the "it's worth it" factor weighs heavily here, and the Browning has THAT, in abundance.

Oh, and my feeds every kind of ammo, and is frighteningly accurate with CCI Mini-Mags, and even Federal Match.

That's my $0.02.

I have owned a Beretta Neo and 10 magazines for it for over a decade.

My take is it is a stylish gun that points very easily. It is fun to shoot. Easy to clean. And it is fragile on accepting cheap 22LR shells. Jams and FTF happen.

High quality, expensive, match shells work fine. I do not have the gunsmithing skills to fix the issue of mass produced WalMart grade shells jamming.

238 My neighbor just called. She wants to borrow the cat carrier. Because she's on the way back from Tahquamenon Falls, and found an animal stunned on the side of the road. She thought it was an osprey, but it might be an owl. It's in a plastic bin right now. She wants the carrier to take it to the DNR (I told her that the DNR, to say nothing of the feds, may take issue with this action). She had to hang up the phone because some kid of raptor-borne lice have infested her car and are now jumping all over her (and presumably her daughter) as she's driving back from Tahquamenon Falls on a Sunday night.

I guess I'll go put the cat carrier on the porch.

Sometimes you can dodge some of that "reward."

We saw an injured owl on the side of the road, looked like broken wing from a car hit.

You know those videos where the injured wild animal seems to recognize that the human is trying to help and don't go all feral on your face? As the kids say, yeah, no. No way were we approaching that still-active dinosaur.

Called the county sheriff, who called the emergency pet vet authorized to help. I don't recall whether we ever found out if it survived.

262 Since I can't really practice draw or follow-up
shots, I've been working on presentation and sight acquisition. Starting
from compressed ready (pistol level and downrange, between waist and
chest height, elbows bent with the pistol pulled in), pick a point on
the target and raise the pistol to firing height and press out towards
the target while visually acquiring the front sight. Fire when it's
lined up, and follow through to acquire the same picture after recoil. I
also download the magazines with a different number of rounds, so I
have to reload during the string, and I don't know when it'll be.

Posted by: hogmartin at September 22, 2019 07:34 PM (t+qrx)
I was going to suggest this as a compromise. This is basically the second half of the draw taught by many agencies, where the "push out" onto the target, acquiring their sight picture and squeezing off the first round.You can practice the full draw at home with an empty firearm.

NRA (etc) have tried to get away from the "AR-15" by declaring the format to be the "Modern Sporting Rifle".

If they are going to go with renaming things for spin just call it a general purpose rifle. No caps, nothing special. Get news type, press, and politicians who are pro 2nd to just the platform that, general purpose rifle. Nothing special.

270 If your range doesn't allow reasonably realistic training, then you need to go find a range that does. Or some public land, should you be lucky enough to have some you can drive out to.

IDPA and other competitive options are very good at letting you practice under types of stress that are hard to arrange on your own. However, if you're just starting out with serious training at this late point, they offer a poor ratio of training to time and money spent. And they are NOT a substitute for focused training; the issue is not that it's a game, but that as games that need to cycle lots of competitors through quickly, they have additional safety rules and conventions that are counterproductive for fighting-focused training.

You will never, ever see a shooting match allow anything similar to a serious live-fire exercise. You are likely better served by taking the funds needed for a few competitions and spending them on a couple of classes - first a basic level, then a more advanced class of the sort that usually requires basic courses first. You should come away from those with a set of skills and drills to practice and an understanding of what they're about.

Ignoring important non-shooting skills like medical stuff, this is pretty much the hierarchy of things to learn about shooting;

1. the fundamental rules2. the manual of arms for your firearm3. the basics of hitting a static target on a square range (sights, breathing, trigger, etc)4. positional shooting (including cars and the use of holsters- this is important) and shooting on the move5. the basics of fighting with a partner6. fighting with multiple pairs of people - the fundamental small unit drills
..Most yokels do 3, and maybe a little of 1 so they don't get booted from a range. Most studious civilian shooters get 1-3 but never move beyond it.

4 is adequate for self defense. If you do not make it to 5, you are likely to get your shit wrecked in anything other than a self defense shooting. It is not hard to learn, but it is significantly harder to DO than people realize until they try it.

I've been to enough public ranges with holes in the ceilings, stall walls, and even the walls behind the stalls (in the opposite direction that guns should be fired) that I can understand why the limit movements that aren't down range.

Food Thread:

baconboard.jpeg

I have been eating a lot of bacon recently, both for the undeniable pleasure of those delectable, fatty morsels of porcine wonder, direct from a pig that gave his all for me, and for the convenient bonus that it really fills me up in the morning. Toss in an egg or two (my current obsession is with hard-boiling them), and you have yourself a fine and tasty meal. I play around with the condiments I use on the eggs, and have settled for a bit (okay, a dab. well, a large dab on each bite) of mayonnaise, but a spoonful of spicy chili crisp hits the spot too.

Back to bacon! Why is it so good? Well, it has pretty much everything pleasing about food. The fat provides wonderful mouth feel and a succulent texture, the salt gives us a pop of pleasure, the smoky meat has just enough flavor and texture to please, and to top it off, it comes in a convenient shape...just perfect for munching neatly or folding into one's mouth in a frantic orgy of gluttony and pleasure.

Commenter "Boswell' recently had an interesting thought...

Kale is the only thing that could actually ruin bacon.
But I stand here before you in all of my reactionary glory and say, "Even kale goes well with bacon!" I recently had a meal, courtesy of a cousin, which included a great kale and bacon and blue cheese salad. Great stuff!

So...bacon may be the perfect food. It compliments everything and ruins nothing. And don't throw ice cream at me. I have had ice cream with bacon sprinkles and it is a fine, fine thing.

******

I bought a quart of milk to make a Béchamel, and for whatever reason I never needed it. So I tucked the milk into the corner of the refrigerator, where I know the temperature is slightly below freezing. I hadn't opened the container, and since it was pasteurized (like 99.9% of milk in America), it was essentially sterile. Fast forward six months (yes, you read that correctly), and all of a sudden I needed a Béchamel, and I didn't feel like going out for a fresh quart of milk.

So what does a cheap bastard do? Use the damned milk of course. It was fine. The container wasn't inflated, the milk wasn't discolored, it smelled like...um...milk, and aside from a bit of separation (which I fixed with a vigorous shake), it was indistinguishable from fresh(er) milk.

My wife was disgusted, and refused to eat the spectacular Cauliflower à la Bluebell that I made with six-month old milk and heels of old cheese, from which I trimmed the mold and desiccated bits.
GAO report examines how date label confusion contributes to food waste
I'm not suggesting that everyone use six-month old stuff, but we do fixate on the various sell by/good until/best before messages that we see on our food. For instance, if a can of peas has an expiration date one year out, then unless the can has a structural failure, I can't imagine that the peas wouldn't be safe two years or three years out. Sure, eventually the metal on the outside and the coating on the inside will decay enough for something bad to happen, but I doubt very much that the eight-year-old can of peas in the back of your pantry will kill you.

It is not concern for the starving in the world that motivated me to post this link, because after all, the world produces plenty of food. it is geopolitical issues that prevent us from feeding the world. Hell, if America wanted to, we could take farming seriously, spend the subsidies intelligently and probably feed the world on our own!

No, it was a very conservative sense that we shouldn't waste. Could I have afforded the $2.25 for another quart of milk? And the $1 for gas and wear and tear to get to the store? Sure. But why waste something that is perfectly okay?

It's nothing like a classic burger, although it certainly sounds interesting as a peek into the food of bygone years. But the gushing hagiographic tone of the writer is off-putting.

How to Make Ernest Hemingway’s Favorite Hamburger
One of Hemingway's many conceits was his arrogant assumption that the way he did things was the best way. And this recipe doesn't disabuse me of that impression.

I might give some version of it a shot, although i am reminded of what a foodie friend said to me when I mentioned that i was going to adulterate a burger with some innocuous ingredient (chopped onion I think). "That's meatloaf!"

Back before Mexico turned into a war zone, I used to go occasionally, and I would bring back bottles of mezcal that I would buy from mom-and-pop stores.

I chose to ignore the risk of heavy metals or other crap, because I was young and stupid.

My milk will go bad by the go bad date for some reason. I think it is mainly because I drink out of the bottle on occasion and the germs from my mouth helps to taint the milk.

Doughnuts with bacon isn't too bad either.

90 Busy week in my kitchen. But, I coast for a while now.

This week I made Fillet of Sole Thermidor with sherry. Rich with cheese, just some broccoli on the side to balance out the fatty fat.

Mid-week I Oven-Baked (Oh, the horrors of not using the grill!) two racks of Pork Back Ribs with a nice Cream Sherry and Balsamic Vinegar basting sauce/glaze. The rub was Hungarian sweet paprika, dry mustard, coriander, granulated garlic, cumin and salt and pepper. The basting sauce was a mix of cream sherry, balsamic vinegar, hot-pepper sauce (Tabasco) and salt. The ribs were so fall off the bone tender (they were basically just steamed in a very small amount of water - not submerged and braised in liquid, in a tight foil encasement). The glaze was added last (cover off) and the ribs came out with a thick crusty bark that was out of this world. Really good. It was different than most of my baby back rib recipes or plain old bbq sauce. This will be one of my go-to's, especially if in the mood for ribs in the dead of winter.

I served a Waldorf Salad on some red and green butter lettuce with the ribs. The Waldorf Salad is one of those perfect salads full of good food that is so easy to make. And it goes with so much.

Friday I roasted two whole chickens for the weekend. Saturday I made some slaw to go with the chicken. The basic creamy kind with sour cream and mayo, a bit of sugar, apple cider vinegar, etc. Red and green cabbage, carrots,...

This morning I made a seafood soup for lunches using various Cioppino Stew and soup recipes for ideas. I wanted to use up some seafood stock and clam juice I had in the house. I ended up using mussels, shrimp and scallops for seafood. Fresh oregano and thyme from my garden. Onions, lots of garlic, tomatoes, red pepper flakes, bay leaves. Instead of red or white wine and/or fennel, fennel seeds or celery, I tossed in some Vermouth and Pernod to add depth. About a half of cup each. Then I tossed in a cup of the Mott's Vegetable Cocktail juice for the heck of it. Delicious.

I wasn't paying attention to my green bell pepper plants out in my garden and one branch broke due to the weight of 3 peppers on it. I quickly picked them, and will need to use them this week.

I tried the Franklin BBQ guy's method for cooking pork ribs.

It worked out great. Delish, as it were.

I'll probably use that in the future.

His method wasn't all that different from mine.

He cooks ribs at 275F as do I.

And his go to rub is salt and black pepper. I used that and it was great. I actually liked that better than most of the rubs I use.

The big difference was that he rests his ribs after cooking for a long time. So, this time I let my ribs rest for 1.5 hours after I pulled them out of the grill.

It made a YUGE difference. My plan is to do this in the future whenever possible.

He'll wrap his ribs but I really don't like steaming BBQ'd meats. Your methodology should be good enough to hit the perfect cook or near the perfect cook each time.

He agrees with me that "Fall off the bone" "tender" is way way overcooked. If you do that, buy some new dentures grandpa!

Next, I'll try his brisket recipe.


Here's a great cocktail to go with BBQ:


THYME IN A BOTTLE
1 oz gin (Roku gin is nice in this)
.75 oz THYM liqueur
.75 oz lemon juice
.5 oz maraschino liqueur

Shake over ice, strain into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with a sprig of fresh thyme.


I don't remember where I got this recipe.

But, a great cocktail. Very light and refreshing with a nice herbal background that goes well with grilled meat or fish and also BBQ.

Give it a whirl!

126 **TOP FIVE DANGERS OF EATING SMOKED MEATS**

5. When you eat smoked meat, there's less for everyone else, and that can get you in trouble

4. If instead of being smoked IN a smoker, it was smoked BY a heavy smoker, such as Nina Blackwood

3. You'll make Al Gore real mad!!

2. You'll want more smoked meat, and then more smoked meat, and then more, and then more...

1. You might die of deliciousness

Thanks. This place calls itself 'Myanmar' in the name, but I don't know if that indicates anything about the food. My impression was that the recipes were very Thai-like, especially the ingredients and preparations, but that the spices were more 'warm' than hot. Less chili, more mace and cardamom (or something that tasted like them, anyway).

That happened to me with the Waldorf Salad, but now when I buy apples, I always buy a couple for that salad. It jogs my memory.

The ribs recipe was from the Williams-Sonoma Essentials of Roasting cookbook. There are many balsamic based glazes, but the cream sherry was a new one for me. It was very good.

172 I used to go occasionally, and I would bring back bottles of mezcal that I would buy from mom-and-pop stores.


A million years ago I was on the small island of Yelapa. After a hike up a hill to a waterfall there was a cafe. I asked if they had a local variety of tequila. They said "oh yes, raicia" (phon.).

It was more like a drug experience than a tequila. It was amazing. I said I had to bring some home and hang on to it until I could hook up with a college friend who was particularly degenerate. I got a bottle of clear liquid with no label and smuggled it home and waited until I could get to Atlanta.

That took six months. At this point it tasted like kerosene. Biggest diappointment evah.

At all hazards, the bacon on a burger must not be chewy, or stringy, or limp. It is crucial that it is heavily smoked with Hickory goodness, and many thin strips preferable to thick slices. Consequently it must be added at the last minute, or near enough.

was tasty. They were also sauced.

194 I'd love some hogmartin. My basil plant died early. It was a lousy growing year here. I also chopped up some salami, black olives, sliced red onion and added cherry tomatoes. I usually top with fresh grated parm before serving. I think next time I may add artichoke hearts. The marinade is just simple Italian dressing I mix from an envelope.

219 Madammayehem, you might try simmering your finished napkins in a solution of washing soda and water to get the old oil and sizing out of the cloth. (maybe not the silk)

Some cloth has a fatty feel to it because of where it came from. It made a difference in some of the projects I've done, like the tea towels I made out of muslin, and my dough raising cloths that I got flour and oil worked into It makes them more absorbent.

I guess I should go find an active thread to say it in...

In my defense, I was too busy listening to more bits and pieces of Leo Marks' _Between Silk and Cyanide_.

299 Have you tried slightly crispy British back bacon on toasted and buttered bun? British people call the sandwich bacon roll. No greens or condiments on the bun although I eat it with a side of sliced tomatoes and pickled cornichons.

You could have turned the old milk into quark cheese. Just leave it another day at room temperature until it's curdled then strain in coffee filters. Add salt to taste to the thickened curds. It will be slightly sour and great with spaetzle.

301 If your milk goes bad inside of the sell-by date, odds are that somebody in your household is chugging it from the container.

As long as it hasn't gone chunky, it's perfectly good for cooking (and some might argue that even then it's OK).

Give it the sniff test, the taste test, and then decide whether it's still fine for your purpose. You love sour cream, right?

We Are Shocked To Discover That The Constitution Gives The President Authority Over Foreign Policy! Shocked!

I am sure that all of you are, like me, breathlessly waiting for the next blockbuster charge to be flung against the White House walls by the barking-mad moonbats of the media. Those charges are so often based on the sleazily leaked half-truths and disinformation leaked to them by their compatriots and handlers in the Deep State. But as Angelo Codevilla writes, the Constitution gives the president essentially all the power to conduct foreign policy, and all of the braying and whining and backstabbing in the media arsenal isn't going to change that. Shamelessness and Ignorance Unlimited

The U.S. intelligence community’s leaders, the Democratic Party, and the media (excuse the redundancy) are trying to convince Americans that President Trump’s conversation with, and perhaps promises to, an unnamed foreign leader amounts to some sort of constitutional crisis. Never mind that the Constitution vests “the executive Power” in the “President of the United States,” a power that includes “by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties . . . appoint ambassadors and other public ministers . . . ” The Constitution also says the president “shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States.”

But, oh, the scandal!

Once upon a time, so goes a story made up to ridicule the voting public, an official who had been dean of a college was run out of office after his opponent accused him of having looked at female students’ theses in private, and had invited to campus traveling troops of thespians.

No doubt Trump is equally guilty of negotiating with a foreign leader in ways that involve classified information. The deep state is counting on today’s American voters to be just as ignorant.

I thought Obama was a sleazy prick who was not pursuing the best interests of the United States, but he was the president, so there wasn't much to do about that except vote him out of office. We tried and failed. My suggestion to the Democrats and the media (BIRM) is to try that tactic instead of all of the ridiculous crap you have been throwing around, hoping that some of it will stick. My anecdotal evidence suggests that most Americans, even my loony-liberal relatives don't give a shit about this kind of crap.

In fact, I think a concerted effort to improve your 2020 electoral chances might be your best bet. I suggest that all of you who hate President Trump fall in line behind a ticket of Sanders/Harris. Hell, Cap'n Kristol is probably weeks away from supporting it.

7 The whole Biden-Trump-Ukraine situation illustrates in clear and stark terms that the media are corrupt Democrat apparatchiks and are working hand in glove with the Deep State.


Biden
is on tape literally saying he used the pressure of losing aid on
Ukraine to drop an investigation involving his son and the media just
tries to flip it as a Trump scandal when he wants it rightly re-visited.

This also illustrates the stark danger of the Deep State as it applies to Trump.

They
are monitoring and watching every move he makes and is essentially a
President operating under extreme duress with enemies both internal
and external to the executive branch, foreign and domestic.


This situation is extremely dangerous and must end.

During the 1950 Senate race in Florida, challenger George Smathers supposedly said about the incumbent Sen. Claude Pepper:

"Are you aware that Claude Pepper is known all over Washington as a shameless extrovert? Not only that, but this man is reliably reported to practice nepotism with his sister-in-law, he has a brother who is a known homo sapiens, and he has a sister who was once a thespian in wicked New York. Worst of all, it is an established fact that Mr. Pepper, before his marriage, habitually practiced celibacy."

There's no evidence Smathers said any such thing. It was made up by a reporter.

I think the "Whistleblower" is trying to be too cute by half in that they are saying they did not listen in on the call because divulging the contents of the call would be a federal offense so they are saying they merely heard about it and are relaying it.

this is hilarious on so many levels.

No-one who has listened to NPR since the 70's believes that NPR has anything to do with Classical music programming.

American Classical music is country, jazz, swing, bluegrass and klesmir. With a side of marching band.
The closestNPR has gotten to it in 30 years besides bumper music and incidental music for Kielor's weekly two hour Progressive-Liberal religious revival, was Marian McPartlan's Piano jazz, and she is both dead and white as Betty Crocker.

If the staff up at NPR want non-white classical music, they should get their lily white north eastern liberal asses out and write some.

Just as they are trying to turn Obama's and Hillary's blatant acts of corruption (book deals anyone?) into somehow Trump's company is corrupt.

68 just to repeat something posted earlier - I do think this is the beginning of the end of Biden's campaign. Not because of Biden's corruption, although it should be, because Leftists don't care about that. But Biden is going to be expected to Fight Back and Make Trump Pay, and he isn't going to be able to, because first, he already confessed on tape, so he can't deny it, and second, he is a confused, blustering, brainless old man who can't put any kind of coherent argument together.

And when the progs see that Biden is impotent to fight back on this, they're going to despise him, and the myth of Biden's "electability" will vanish. And without that, Joe's got nothin'.

74 The is the Left's standard tactic these days.

If an anti-leftist points out or exposes a leftist crime or evil, the focus in the media is instead always on the mechanism by which the anti-leftist acted -- NEVER on the crime or evil itself.

Examples:

-- Pro-life activist catch Planned Parenthood on camera scheming to sell dismembered baby parts. What happened? OMG YOU FILMED SOMEONE SECRETLY, DID YOU GET PERMISSION? WE ARE SENDING YOU TO JAIL for the crime of journalism!

-- Biden's family caught red-handed doing treasonous illegal deals with Ukraine. Trump points this out, asks that it be investigated. The result? OMG TRUMP'S IN LEAGUE WITH FOREIGNERS! No mention is made of WHY Trump talked with the Ukrainians -- a perfectly legitimate (and expected) thing to do.

-- Hillary exposed as endangering national security by setting up illegal insecure server in her home, allowing it to be hacked by anyone and everyone. Trump jokes about her incompetence and criminality. Result? OMG TRUMP IS SPYING ON HILLARY OMG OMG.

The narrative arc is always the same. Blame the whistle-blower, accuse the accuser.

The left is just straight-up evil, plain and simple.

76 one little bit disappointing thing to keep in mind: by all accounts so far, the "whistleblower" followed procedures and so isn't going to be suspect to any legal retaliation, and will probably keep their job. There is a Whistleblower Statute that when a federal employee "suspects" wrongdoing, they are supposed to write up a report and submit it to their superior, who then presents it to his superior. Looks like that's what was done. (never mind that the accusation should have been shot down immediately)

But I don't see the NA lefties sitting still long enough for that to happen; they know they're on a timer.
And just because it's the most peaceful resolution, doesn't mean it's the best one, or even a good one. A number of questions need to be answered for at least a few generations.

Yep, I agree to some extent, but let me play devil's advocate (especially apt phrase here).

Insty links to the Working Families Party taking intense heat from the Bernie Bros for endorsing Warren. So it's going to be tough to portray the Democrat Party as having a big wigwam.

Each of their wannabes has appeal limited to a narrowis slice of true believers, and huge drawbacks for the general election. Biden's senile and a gaffe machine, Bernie is a lunatic pushing ancient Marxist crap, Warren is a phony opportunist and an HOA Nazi, Harris is a nasty opportunist slut, Buttplug is a hard left flaming fruit, and the rest don't even budge the needle.

So ... whom to choose as the nominee?

"Jazz" basically refers to the popular music of the US between 1917 and 1955. There are various subgenres in each era, but they're all just forms of "jazz" -- in chronological order, Dixieland, "hot jazz," swing, Big Band, bebop, "cool jazz."

After 1955, rock 'n' roll supplanted jazz as the primary popular music of the US, and jazz quickly fell into decline and became mostly irrelevant. As a side-effect of this, jazz split into two opposite streams -- "pop jazz," really boring and treacly sorta-jazz (think Mel Torme, Barbra Streisand, th Longines Symphonette, etc.) intended to appeal to people who deemed themselves too old for rock; and "modern jazz," completely unlistenable experimental dissonant jazz, to distinguish its listeners as being (in their own minds) too hip and smart for the average rock-loving Nearderthal.

It is that final category -- modern (i.e. post 1955) experimental jazz that you (and I) and most sane people find so unlistenable and offensive. Because it not only INTENTIONALLY sounds horrible, but it comes with a built-in patina of smug pretension -- i.e. "If you don't like or understand this music, then you are stupider and less evolved than me." Pure assholism, in musical form.

100 Always Late, re local power brokers, we have an interesting situation in our county right now with the Dems:
A black female pastor who has made her local name finding racism and inequity under every blade of grass is running for the soil and water conservation board, as a stepping stone to higher office, having been so-advised by the local committee to do that instead of challenging their guy for supervisor in the district in which she lives.
The soil and water board is the last refuge of a Kennedy-wannabe guy who retreated there after losing several larger local elections. (he appears on Ari Melber regularly, aging bond Irishman with a bowtie)
This woman attended her first-ever meeting of the board for which she is running last week, and promptly said she could not stand being in a room with so many white people, that things needed to change in this racist group.
She has zero clue what the conservation board's metes and bounds are, and fifth-Kennedy-bro went nuts on social media, said the committee was wrong to endorse her, needed to retract their support, and incumbent Republicans were better choices for the actual mission of the body.

This guy is total TDS, conspiracy hound, the works, and he is standing his ground against her candidacy, taking much flak from his erstwhile moonbat allies.

Of course, he is old, white, and straight, so she is bitchslapping him all over the airwaves, but it is still a huge surprise to me that Mr. Intersectional Prog has finally met the part of the long-made bed he won't sleep in, now that the shit is in his little corner of power.

Not all jazz is horrible. I like jazz from the bebop era (i.e. around 1942-1955). Not all of it, but some of it. With someone to guide you, yo can find some great stuff in that era.

You can say that again. Pure crap.

Know how to immediately identify an ignorant asshole? Ask someone if they like (or pretend to like) Miles Davis's album "Bitches Brew." if they say "Yes," they are an asshole.

That album is like a shibboleth to identity un-self-aware smug turds. No one actually likes it, but douchebags always claim to like it, since they (mistakenly) think that identifies them as "cool."
