Quote I

That’s exactly why the left is so hysterical about the Supreme Court. They run to the courts to win their most unpopular policy ideas, gift-wrapped and handed to them as “constitutional rights.” Ann Coulter

Ann always interesting and usually controversial to some degree.


Quote II

“When I was a kid and used to come here, Chamula was isolated and didn’t have access to processed food. Now, you see the kids drinking Coke and not water. Right now, diabetes is hitting the adults, but it’s going to be the kids next. It’s going to overwhelm us.” Vicente Vaqueiros

For those of you who wear an occasional python boot. Here is your chance to wear alligator instead. But, you will have to travel to Florida and bag one.

Free Speech: 1 - Clock boy 0. The 1st Amendment alive and well, for another day.

It looks like time has run out for “Clock Boy,” the young Muslim American who was accused of bringing a hoax bomb to an Irving, Texas, high school back in September of 2015, when he was just 13. Clock Boy is the nickname conservatives gave freshman high school student Ahmed Mohamed after his stunt three years ago.

The young man was feted by the Left at the time and even invited to the White House by then-President Barack Obama. Both Hillary Clinton and Mark Zuckerberg expressed public support for Mohamed, folks like Stephen Colbert featured him on their shows, and CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations) named Mohamed the American Muslim of the Year, as The Daily Wire noted.

Reason #13,658 why one should eat hamburgers at hamburger joints. Salads at McDonald's are making people sick.

Even under the best of circumstances, ordering salad at McDonald’s is a dicey endeavor. But now an outbreak of the foodborne parasite cyclospora has sickened over 100 people in Iowa and Illinois since May, and several cases are tied to salads purchased at the fast food giant.

The outbreaks were jointly reported Thursday by Iowa and Illinois health officials. In Illinois, about 90 cases have been seen since mid-May, with a quarter of victims reporting that they had eaten McDonald’s salads soon before they became sick. In Iowa, at least 15 people are thought to have eaten these salads just before developing a cyclospora infection, or cyclosporiasis, from late June to early July.

“Anyone who ate these salads since the middle of June and who developed diarrhea, especially watery diarrhea and fatigue, should see their health care provider and get tested for Cyclospora to ensure an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment,” Patricia Quinlisk of the Iowa Department of Public Health said in a statement.

Yummy.

The ONT Musical Interlude



July 15, 1978, The Rolling Stones started a two-week run at No.1 on the US album chart with Some Girls the group's seventh US No.1 album. The cover designed by Peter Corriston, featured The Rolling Stones in garish drag alongside select female celebrities and lingerie ads. The cover immediately ran into trouble when Lucille Ball, Farrah Fawcett, Liza Minnelli (representing her mother Judy Garland), Raquel Welch, and the estate of Marilyn Monroe who all threatened legal action. via thisdayinmusic.com


***



1946, Born on this day, American singer Linda Ronstadt who had the 1975 US No.1 single 'You're No Good', and the 1989 UK No.2 single with Aaron Neville, 'Don't Know Much' plus over 15 other US Top 40 hits. She has earned 11 Grammy Awards, three American Music Awards, two Academy of Country Music awards, an Emmy Award, and an ALMA Award. via thisdayinmusic.com

There is a time and place for ski masks and flannel clothing. Miami, FL is not one of them. Genius Award Winner.

A man in a ski mask was arrested Saturday after trying to rob a Broward bank, according to FBI officials.

But 46-year-old David Licht didn’t cash out as planned. In fact, he didn’t make it further than the door.

Police say footage shows a flannel-wearing Licht trying to open the front doors of a Wells Fargo in Hollywood off Taft Street.— the temperatures were in the 90s.

52 The thing that absolutely asslessly-chaps my ass about the Clock Boy thing is that the "clock" itself was such a weaksauce shitshow of embarrassment and ineptitude. Asshole (or his parents or whatever) unscrewed the enclosure from an off-the-shelf $6 digital alarm clock and put it in a fucking pencil case. And he gets lauded as some brilliant fucking engineer for "creating" a clock? For taking something designed in 1985 and slapped together in Shenzhen by the hundreds of thousands of units every year and making it worse? This gets you a fucking seat on the young inventors finalists' stage? I hope the eight year olds who, y'know, actually thought of new scientific or engineering or mathematical ideas and then synthesized them into reality made that asshole cry, mercilessly.

I am so irrationally pissed off about this.

Same. Trichina is pretty much eradicated from US pork. There's a whole generation or three of Americans who don't realize that a pork chop is just delicious pan-fried on its own because they grew up soaking it in applesauce just so it wouldn't have the texture of a mudflap.

They are not even aware that their voting base is about 40% moderates, a lot of whom vote D because they just always have. By 2020, IMO, their actions will drive out a large chunk of these votes to #walkaway.

127 That ice boat is pretty cool. but the guy needs to redesign his motor rig. Having to hold the tiller up to put the toothed wheel on the ice would get old pretty fast. There's a reason you step on the pedal to disengage the clutch, and not to engage it.

Motor wheel should be rigged so its own weight, or spring pressure, forces it into the ice, and handle arranged so that pushing down on it lifts the wheel off the ice. You could a latching device to hold the wheel off the ice for engine starting.

And that looks like a real old Briggs and Stratton engine, maybe off a tiller.

If Clock Boy had bought an actual digital clock kit, and followed the instructions, and assembled it, and made it work, he would earn at least a little praise for being patient and methodical. But still wouldn't be an inventor.
Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at July 15, 2018 10:44 PM (bNb8V)


Yes, this. If he'd made a cardboard crystal radio kit, that would at least be making something from parts. If he took the clock apart and put it back together, that would at least indicate that he understood how to break something down and reassemble it and still have it work.

He took the absolute cheapest digital clock and made it worse and was hailed around the world as some kind of brilliant fucking visionary FGRHAWRRRRRRRRR FOAM RAGE FGHRRR

No, I have no real interest in doing so. I sure do have engines and stuff though, and even the big circular saw blade.

You would get tired real quick using muscle power to engage the wheel with the ice. I expect a fair bit of down-force is needed. Most snow machines, and I think quads now have a dead-man switch, like a key that hooks by a lanyard to your jacket. You get bucked off, lanyard pulls key out of socket, engine is shut down instantly.

Such a deadman switch would be very easy to rig on the ice boat, too.

Not as fast as a snowmobile. But I really like my Argo for frozen lakes. Just for the safety factor. Though when I bought it the getting across the swamp was my main concern. I have seen snowmobile tracks that broke through the ice and have also had my cross country ski tips break through the ice. So unless I really know the lake I am paranoid.

Most commonly. (I hedge because there are other possible causes of the condition, some of that is simply eczema) Some spots are really prone to it, such as the elbows - when it's at a bad peak, the skin there cracks and bleeds a bit for no external reason.

245 CA Democrat Party endorses Kevin de Leon over Diane Feinstein for senator. Note this is one of those weird CA situations where the top two recipients of votes in the primaries are the ones on the ballot, so the general can have 2 people from the same party running against each other.

De Leon wrote the CA state sanctuary bill, and is to the left of Feinstein. The far loony radicals in the Democrat party (as opposed to the moderate loonies) have definitely been heartened by the victory of Camacho Elizando Ocasio-Cortes in NYC and think they can get this to snowball by ousting Feinstein.

I wish them luck. It's pure karma that these old white liberals thought they could sacrifice the country to amass power by overrunning it with illegals, encouraging grievance mongering and identity politics. They're getting their Davros moment when the Daleks they've created are turning on them and zapping them.

Ah, the Archimedes Screw vessel. Great in theory, not so great in practice. The two screw pontoons rotate in opposite directions, of course, have to, in fact. But if one pontoon gets more traction than the other, you scoot off sideways.

Such a beast was built, intended to be a snow machine, but its shortcomings were obvious. And the M29 Weasel came along, with track drive, and was an altogether bigger bang for the buck.

Posted by: lin-duh at July 15, 2018 11:17 PM (kufk0)


Yes, they can live on wet food. It's actually better than the alternative, if you have to choose only one, since cats are at risk for kidney problems if they don't get enough water (even if there's always fresh water available). Plus, wet food is, all other things being equal, higher in protein and other meaty goodness than dry food which often has more grain added that they can't really use.

In all cases, pick a decent brand to start with and you'll be fine. I did up an eye-wateringly boring spreadsheet of nutrition-to-cost that's around here somewhere, email in nick if you want.

I personally give mine Solid Gold brand Indigo Moon dry plus a can of Natural Balance limited ingredient canned about 3x/week.

273 Not as fast as a snowmobile. But I really like my Argo for frozen lakes. Just for the safety factor. Though when I bought it the getting across the swamp was my main concern. I have seen snowmobile tracks that broke through the ice and have also had my cross country ski tips break through the ice. So unless I really know the lake I am paranoid.
Posted by: X-ray at July 15, 2018 11:09 PM (YdakM)

I was on jobs where we had to use snow machines to cross frozen lakes, in one case, when breakup was approaching. We were told: "get on the machine, head for the other shore, and give it wide-open throttle until you get there." A sufficiently powerful snow machine will skim over open water for miles, if need be. But you cannot slow down, and turning is risky, too.

Back in the late 70s I went to a snowmobile water cross race. A tiny 15yr old girl dominated the day. The sleds back then could kinda do water cross. The sleds today can actually gain speed on the water.

Now, I stumble into an ONT and you scalliwags are committing heresy against the world's greatest rock and roll band? Harumph!

So, two quick points, since taste is not a thing that people can be persuaded of.

Thing one: They've experimented in all of the genres. You could make a really good country album out of Stones songs.

Thing two: I only recently learned that one of the best jazz riffs in history was accidental. On "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" the song proper ends and there's a long instrumental.

It turns out that the musicians thought the song had ended and the recording stopped but they kept going because they were in a groove. It wasn't even so much the Stones proper, it was Billy Preston and Nicki Hopkins (I think) and their regular studio crew and it's brilliant.

One take only, because they didn't know they were being recorded.

This and also a cat's skull is the largest non-squishable part. If a cat can get its head in something, the rest of the cat will follow since they are basically a puddle with a head.

So, a box with a small opening that is sturdy enough that a dog won't bother trying to knock it over (or behind a couch or something) should be sufficient to limit access to kitty.

He got worse and while his wife was driving him back to the ER for third time he had a seizure and died. Of chicken pox at 29. I had never actually met him but all of my co-workers were stunned, especially the younger ones who'd never had an experience of death beyond elderly relatives.

FWIW, most subversive sites will actually tell you that 1972 wasn't the "Tequila Sunrise Tour" for the Stones, but actually the "Cocaine and Tequila Sunrise Tour".

317 I love how serious cats look all the time. I'll put the mother cat on the seat of my task chair and wheel her around the house slowly just for grins

And she looks so serious it kills me
Posted by: Booknlass at July 15, 2018 11:52 PM (84I0r)


Lydia used to sleep on the arm of the couch and occasionally just flop off in her sleep only to wake up inches from the floor and completely eat shit face-first. That was funny enough, but the elaborate "I meant to do that" act afterwards somehow made it even more hilarious. "Yes, I just bonked myself straight onto the floor out of a dead sleep, now I'm going to groom myself and what exactly are you looking at? You've never seen a cat groom herself?"

----------------------

We use the Sam's brand cat litter for our cat. Comes in a plastic pail. As for boxes, you don't need anything fancy. We did get one with a lid. Does a little better job of containing the litter.

Whatever you get, though, make sure you've got a place for it where the dog can't reach it. That's another advantage of having a lid. You can turn the entrance to the litter box towards a corner of the room. The cat will be able to get in, but the dog generally can't.

330 Anyone else enjoying Comrade Crazyeyes's meltdown over the fact that the Dem hack she primaried is still going to be on the ballot?

It seems that she was so busy trying to win the Dem party that she neglected to get the endorsement of the Communist party ("Working Families Party" = communist). The commies endorsed the other guy, and now, supposedly, he can't be taken off the ballot unless he moves out of the district, gets put on the ballot for another office, or gets convicted of a crime. He says he's "not running", but I'm betting that he'll win if he's on the ballot. Remember Joe Lieberman and Kos darling Ned Lamont? Yeah, like that.

Maybe if Cortez the Killer hadn't been busy slagging her opponent and every other Dem official (right up to Nancy Pelosi) some pressure would be brought to bear. Not happening, Alexandria. Nancy's capos are going to serve you up a nice cold dish of Italian revenge.

Posted by: Bitter Clinger


I don't think you're standing alone, by any measure.

There's this study, backed up by real facts, that legal CCW permit holders are the least likely to break the law re use of guns. That those folks value their right to bear arms in such numbers that they rarely commit gun crimes.

Now, I don't have a problem with enhanced penalties for those paroled/pardoned on committing new gun violations; make it impossible to regain that right again.

If you believe in the power of rehabilitation, of redemption, then this is The Right Thing To Do.

340 Evenin' Horde,

Had a nice couple of days at the cabin with Average Wife. Picked up a nice copy of one of my favorite recordings, Pat Metheny Group's self-titled album, on vinyl, at an antique store in Monterey. I've had it on CD for about 30 years, but frankly the CD recording sucks. I thought it was just poorly mastered but I was pleasantly surprised to find the vinyl version much better.

Also picked up a copy of UFO's Obsession, for a friend. Never been into UFO (never really heard them, actually), but my friend's a big fan, so I had to buy it. First listen: not bad... actually quite good. Will have to keep my eyes open for more of their stuff.

361 Pat Metheny Group, the self-titled album, is probably one of the more approachable recordings. More melodic, with more traditional song structures. The two songs comprising Side A, San Lorenzo and Phase Dance are spellbinding. Side B is equally strong. Again, though, if all of the CDs made were of the same quality as my copy, you may be disappointed (main gripe: garbled hi-hats).

Two other great albums are Offramp and Bright Size Life (the latter is not Pat Metheny Group, just Pat Metheny... but features Jaco Pastorius on Bass).

The use of Moon-Clips in many revolvers requires the machining away of metal from the rear of the cylinder, to the same thickness as the stamped steel of the Moon-Clip material.

Results in proper headspace, this.

Done correctly, only the outer areas of the cylinder are thus machined, and the inner diameter is kept "as factory".

This way, rounds chambered without being fitted into a Moon-Clip will still headspace properly.

You'd have to see it in photos, but the Moon-Clip only overlays about the outer third of a revolver cylinder.

Machine it all down to the cylinder "star", and you'll have to use Moon-Clips 100% of the time, from there on.

398 Anyone who machines away the rear cylinder face on a "dash-two" or earlier Smith & Wesson revolver, needs to be flogged in the public square.

ONLY way I'd ever do such, is to buy a used cylinder from a "parts gun", and have it carefully matched and timed to the existing lockwork in my revolver.

But the original cylinder on a classic S&W is sacrosanct, and ought not be altered in any way.

Speed Loaders are good enough, even though not the fastest, for my 28-2 Smith & Wesson Highway Patrolman .357 Magnum.

Butcher the new production Smiths all you like, though. They're still good guns, but they're not the fully forged and machined classics of yore.

The fastest reload is a second revolver. Then, depending on your platform, full moon clips, speed loaders, half-moon clips, speed strips. YMMV.

After she helped her dad tie off a tree to be cut, she started talking about her dad's bumper stickers.

She likes Trump, but, she likes Rand Paul more because "he's really smart, and he worked with his hands as a doctor."

Then, we talked about the NRA, and she started bragging about how she did so good with the Mark IV .22, that her parents bought her a .308 and she's getting good with that, too.

This gives me hope for Colorado.

It is not quite as bas as you may think, and actually the Leftards are alienating younger adults at an alarming (in a good way, for us) rate.

My very soon to be 22y/o daughter tells me that the Left is running kids around her age off with their batshit crazy stances and party purges of any moderates. She goes to Alabama, so I asked her what her friends at other, less conservative schools were saying.

Her opinion of the responses was that they are now aware that 1. the D party no longer cares about the middle class, or any class except illegals, really. 2. They never really did. They have shown their hand in replacing the voting population in this country with one who will vote for them. 3. They are aware that about half of the Rs feel the same way, and they know why.

It was amazing to hear this, unprompted by me, from her. They are getting "woke". Not in a way the Dems are gonna care for though, except for those moonbat kids hanging on the fringe.

Put another box through the Star BM. It still wants to hammer bite me. Though it got me thinking, maybe I'm SUPPOSED to be wearing gloves with this gun? I mean it was police issue in Spain. Yup, wearing gloves, no blood lost, no accuracy lost, either. Good little pistol, all things considered.

Also put two boxes through the Glock 36. Damn, that thing is like a laser. But it does buck. The G36 is actually smaller and lighter than the Star BM, while holding only one round less.

I'm pretty certain that is an air rifle. There appears to be a hinge at middle of the barrel just in front of the end of the stock.

Bad form. Mrs Cop wants to have the butt plate too high, also. It seems a lot of female novice rifle shooters have a problem: probably because they don't want to smoosh their bewbs.

57 RE the Ruger LCP. I carry one every day. Because of the light weight and short sight radius it's snappy and takes a lot of practice to shoot well. Once you have mastered it you will find that you are more accurate with all of your handguns. Great little easily concealable gun that is very reliable.

97 The rifle in the picture appears to be a spring-air rifle. The hold is still wrong of course. And spring-air guns do have some recoil-- the recoil goes back and then forward, a recoil pattern notorious for shaking apart scopes that are not built to take it.

The recoil is modest overall, but as a dumb kid I put the stock of a relatively weak spring-air rifle on the point of my chin and the spring-driven recoil nearly knocked me silly. The woman may actually be at some risk of a shiner.

That being said, it does buck a bit but I don't think that they are uncontrollable. The G36 is rather under-appreciated, but I think they are a great pistol.

Those of us still in the Seattle area have learned over the past few years not to lead with any pro-gun/2A/self-defense statements when meeting new people.

A few drinks in, it is usually pretty obvious if the newbie is friend or foe to Constitutional rights. I always check now, and they don't even know it.
And I am not referring to the ones that are truly batshit-crazy pinkhats. Lots and lots of them around.

A few years ago, went to a gathering at a friend-of-a-friend's home. A couple of good friends were there, and we proceeded to talk like we talk here at an AoS gun thread.
A new neighbor came up and said, "wow, I just moved here and I didn't think any one talked like you guys do". Later that season, we took him out to the woods for some target shooting. Now another friend for life.

This week was Star Super B week. Nice 1911 knock off in 9mm made by the
now defunct but fondly remembered Star Bonifacio Echeverria, S.A.

-------------------

I wish one of the many 1911 clonemakers would take a look at the Super B and make a 1911 with all of those improvements. Hi-Power lockup, no grip safety, loaded chamber indicator, slick take-down latch... Those hombres got it right.

Mine's a jam-a-matic, though (with FMJ). Need to replace the recoil spring and try some 147-grainers with it.

There's a 9mm Largo version whispering to me at the local LGS. $300. Seems silly to have two of the same gun, but it's a different caliber, so... maybe.

172 I have a question. As some of you know, I just purchased my first firearm in 36 years. A Ruger 10/22. I did buy an extra BX-1 10 round magazine, I wanted a couple of more but that's all the gun seller had in stock. I got to thinking that tomorrow when I go to the range, I'm going to be spending an awful lot of time reloading. He showed me a 25 round magazine, BX-25 (again only one in stock) that I didn't get. I went to the Ruger website today to look it up and there were wildly different reviews, with a large number saying that they sucked, jamming after only 3 or 4 rounds.
Does the Horde have any experience or knowledge of said magazine, or a really good alternative?Thanks!

So I linked the military Wiki about it being a Flak gun and pointed out I and the other commenter had already discussed its ground use. No reply to that.

First of all, I brainfarted; you want to use the lowest setting that works, and generally buck/slugs will work at '1'. Lighter stuff generally needs '2'. Low brass shells can be problematic.

See? I've heard both of these, and "cannon-cockers" and something like "lanyard pullers" or whatever. I don't know which are OK and which aren't.

OTOH, a civilian once stressed to me that he respectfully pronounced it subMARiner instead of submaREENer because he'd been reliably informed that the latter was an open invitation to a bloody fistfight, which was the first time I'd ever heard that I was supposed to give a shit.

Posted by: Bert G at July 15, 2018 08:38 PM (yzxic)


I was in a Fire Support Team (abbreviated as "FIST") and worked closely with the infantry. We were basically smart grunts and carried radios and blew $h!t up by dropping artillery projectiles on said $h!t.

We called ourselves "Fist F*ckers" and the gun crews "Gun
Bunnies." Since bunnies and machismo don't exactly coincide, I imagine the gun crews weren't particularly thrilled by that term.

Field Artillery = "Cannon Cockers" as a generic non-insulting nickname.

Posted by: hogmartin at July 15, 2018 08:53 PM (y87Qq)

219 Notsothoreau, first priority is to absolutely insist on your approach of shoot-before-buy. That's the key.


Then, at least at first you'll be limited to whatever the range rents (some have a lot of handguns, some don't).


Beyond that, plenty here will have better ideas (I don't carry and don't focus on carry-suitable hardware). Would only say do not over look revolvers, and do not ignore that you might want your carry guns to be shootable and fun enough that you'll both practice and become proficient with them.


Some of the lightweight revolvers and even semi-autos (as discussed by others above) are "for carrying/having, not shooting" - meaning they're unpleasant enough to shoot that it's unlikely you'll practice much.

258 AlaBAMA, if you're talking handguns, really not that much cleaning involved, neccessarily.


If you're talking handguns, using factory ammo, really really not a big deal. First, most modern guns don't want/need that much cleaning. Second, a quick wipedown, a snake through the bore and/or cylinder chambers, maybe a drop of lube (for semis) - that's really it.


Plus, gun shops these days often have cleaning services. Have never used them, but for the cleaning-averse, perfect. Once a year, at most, pay someone to do a full disassembly and cleaning.


See - I've solved your problem.

My one Springfield experience is their cheap 1911 (combat?). After getting a few things buffed down and buttoned up it became a really great little pistol. Common 1911 stuff, but I still never gained complete trust in it after that. If something doesn't go bang in my Glocks (and Sigs, and personal favorite brand - Rugers) then I know it's the ammo. If the Springfield acts funny I always figure it's the gun first. Which is a shame, because it really is a great gun. I just can't trust it like I'd like to.

The VP9 feels more Sig-like than Glock-like, aside from being a striker gun. That's the only one I have, and it's the Mercedes CLA of HKs in that it's an entry-level model for uppity poors who wish they could havebe the kind of person who has a USP45/E-class but can't afford one.

275 @231,

I have a 9 shot H&R .22LR. It's the only gun I have. A good friend gave my late husband a nice vintage shotgun but I gave it back after my husband died. I plan to visit with him before we move and he might have a starter gun he'd sell me.

278 AlaBAMA, I sometimes am affected by the volume-of-cleaning thing (don't shoot everything I bring to the range), but it doesn't stop me from shooting *something*, usually several somethings.


And I've reduced my cleaning to a smarter, reduced level. Nothing I shoot needs to be completely cleaned each time for any reason. Even "corrosive" 54R milsurp ammo is no big deal (dry climate, old Mosin-Nagants with functionally fine but not pretty bores).

282 265 Springfield XD series grip angle is same as the 1911, I believe. After lots of handling and shooting I chose an XD9 over a Glock as my basic plastic nine. Both excellent guns, just a question of "fit", as Calm Mentor noted.

I always thought the build quality on Sigs and HKs appeared just a little better than Glocks, but it might be my familiarity and the way Glocks are all the same except for the scale of the model. I've shot so many Glocks they don't feel that special to me, and then someone hands me a P7 or even an old $300 police Sig from the 80s and I think, "Wow, these are really well made guns."

I haven't shot any new ones from either manufacturer, but I'll probably end up getting a Sig 365 as a main carry weapon when the demand dies down a bit.

Since I shoot lead reloads in the 1911, it gets totally disassembled and cleaned every 1,000 rounds or so, since the lube on lead bullets gunks up a gun like soft wood fouling a chimney. But I sort of enjoy that one - play webcasts of "Gun Talk" while I do it.

298 Moron Robbie, I don't think it's an Apollo mission to disassemble/reassemble an XD, but it's not as straightforward as doing a 1911. Just a few roll pins etc. for which I'd prefer to have the right tools (which I don't - some tools and general purpose punches and gunsmith screwdriver set). So the combo of having to get more tools (Cheap Bastid guiding principle) and having to focus and learn how to do it properly (Lazy Bastic guiding principle) have, so far, deterred me.


Of course I'll need a good set of starter and roll pin punches to build the ARs I'm gonna build some day, so ..... hmmm.

319 Police Try To Take Veteran's Guns Without A Warrant. He Didn't Let Them https://bit.ly/2uos8Tz

Iraq war veteran Leonard Cottrell Jr. says that last month New Jersey police tried to confiscate his firearms without a warrant - and he did not let them take them.

Two police officers visited his home "because his 13-year-old son had made a comment at school about the Millstone Middle School's security, and the officers wanted to confiscate Cottrell's firearms as part of an investigation," NJ.com reported.

Cottrell, who legally owns a shotgun and a handgun, is a disabled U.S. Army veteran who served multiple tours during "Operation Iraqi Freedom."


Cottrell says that his wife let the officers into their home and let them search their sons' room where they did not find any weapons but then the officers tried to take his firearms, which "he has all the correct permits to own."

"No one from the state was going to take my firearms without due process," Cottrell said, according to NJ.com.

The police's attempt to confiscate Cottrell's firearms comes after Democrat Governor Phil Murphy signed into law a bill that makes it easy for law enforcement to confiscate firearms without due process.

What was that tale about Davy Crockett? I think it involved killing two wild animals, one a bear, with one shot by splitting the bullet in two or something.

Or maybe it was Daniel Boone.

On the Beverly Hillbillies, "ricochet shooting" was a favorite pastime. They'd light matches with a bullet after bouncing it off a rock.

They thought shooting skeet with a shotgun was just cheating. They used a rifle.

I recently got some kinda/sorta good news about the boss I was complaining about a few weeks ago: long story short, my ONE co-worker can't stand my boss's attitude either.

Interesting though: last week when my boss started getting after *her,* this co-worker openly said "I don't know if this job is for me, maybe I shouldn't continue to work here much longer." Suddenly my boss was more cordial, let the topic go and started just talking about random social stuff with this co-worker. Hmm.

Of course, they're both women... ;-)

Hook your thumb through your belt loop. Hold a rifle at your hip and hook your finger through the trigger guard. Apply forward tension on the rifle until it trips the trigger, which sends the rifle back under recoil, until it is arrested and overcome by the force of you continuing to pull it forward.

That's bump firing. A bump stock is a stock that mechanically assists that process without using the belt loop.

I've had this discussion a lot.

When the government tells me that a pedophile can't live near a school, have a computer or put out a pumpkin at Halloween, what I feel like they are really telling me is that the pedo is not reformed and likely to commit the same crime again.

That means, to me anyway, that they should still be in prison.

Likewise, when you tell me that someone is not to be trusted with Constitutional rights, you are telling me they should still be locked up.

391 You know, it just now occurred to me that I'm a Moron, and this is the Gun Thread, and I happen to have a new 80% firearm in its preorder phase right now.

It's called the CS12-80 80% Combat Shotgun, and it's a hybrid of a Mossberg 500 12ga pump action shotgun and an AR15.

Same action and reliability of the Mossy 500, but with the furniture and controls of an AR15. Easier to handle, intuitive to use, AND you can build yourself a nice shorty using a Shockwave parts kit (14" barrel) and an AR arm brace (like the nice new adjustable length ones from SB Tactical).

It's never been a shotgun before you finish it, and it was designed to be over 26" in OAL length with a 14" barrel and an AR arm brace.

Parts kits are readily available from many sources (eBay, gun parts houses like EveryGunPart.com, etc), and the receiver set comes with the jig you'll need to finish them using a router and hand drill (or better yet, a router and a drill press). We also sell the cutting tools you'll need, but since there is nothing proprietary involved there, you can buy them locally if you prefer.

I know this seems a bit spamy, but it's on topic, and I've been commenting here sporadically since before Jug Ears usurped the Cherry Blossom Throne, so I'm not some rando asshole (I'm a known asshole).

If you want to help a fellow Moron out, and stick it to the man just a little, you might wander over to the site my name links to above and see if you like what you see.

Food Thread: Oysters And Squirrels And Ribs...Oh My!

Scottish nuts.jpg

Is this a successful attempt at humor, or is it mandated by the unelected lunatics of the EU or is it a bit of both? I'm not sure, but it got a chuckle out of me.

I saw this at a Sunday market in Scotland, and was amazed that they can actually sell it! Is squirrel legal to sell anywhere in the US? I have eaten it once and was underwhelmed, so I am not rushing out to clandestine meetings with squirrel poachers for my weekly fix. Although...I just put a red dot sight on my 10-22, so I am capable of becoming a squirrel bootlegger....

******

Scottish oysters.jpg

I am a big fan of oysters, and I will seek out Dollar Oyster happy hours for my fix, simply because I am a glutton and just love to eat to excess. But as many of you oyster fans are aware, the typical dollar oyster is a pretty pedestrian thing. Around here they tend to be good, but nothing exciting. They are usually Long Island grown; pleasant, but nothing to write home about.

So I was thrilled to discover that Pound Oyster happy hour was an actual thing in Scotland, but resigned to the low end of the oyster hierarchy. And I was spectacularly wrong! This bar offered three different local oysters, all of which were magnificent. Certainly some of the best oysters I have ever eaten!

Yes, I promptly got fitted for a kilt and will be moving to Edinburgh.

******

Morels11.jpg

Yup. That's in my yard, from a couple of months ago. It was a little long in the tooth when I discovered it, and i am only 99% sure that it is a morel, so I wouldn't have eaten it anyway without a positive identification from an expert, but damn! Maybe next year I will have a huge crop and be able to bathe in morels sauteed in butter, or grilled steak topped with morels, or scrambled eggs and morels, or French Toast and morels.....

******

Regular commenter and shiv aficionado Bluebell and I are a bit puzzled by this recipe. I made it a few years ago and remember nothing except the cookies were good. But why is there molasses in it when there is also quite a bit of brown sugar? And what's up with the double dose of vanilla? Inquiring minds want to know, so put on your Baker Geek hat and figure it out.
Joy's Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies with Pecans
I do remember enjoying the salt on top, but that makes sense, because chocolate and butter are marvelous both savory and sweet.
******

I saw some really nice meaty beef ribs at the store yesterday, and I couldn't resist. So I will be smoking them this afternoon with a simple salt and pepper rub. I did cheat a bit and put a light dusting of garlic powder on them last night, for no particular reason. Any thoughts about beef ribs? I like them simple, but there are plenty of people out there who use lots of ingredients in their beef rubs.

And even the false morels won't kill you. It's like starting a game of mushroom on easy mode.

I've been committing the Glycemic Index to memory lately. Cliff Notes version is that items high on the scale will spike the ever-living-hell out of your insulin response and perhaps give you the diabeetus on a long enough time line. Perhaps even Alzheimers -- which some health care folks are referring to as 'Type 3' diabeetus.

You know what's surprisingly low on the scale?

Ice cream and chocolate cake. Both of them down around strawberries.

Surprisingly high on the scale? Baked potato and carrots. Worst item I've seen is corn bread.

You are right. The best case scenario for oysters (or mussels) in Colorado is that they taste bad. Worst case scenario is being dead from food poisoning.

I picked up windfalls at a UPick place (don't tell them you got windfalls because they get all weird on you since getting food from the ground violates health rules or something), cut the pits and the obvious issues out of them, and then cooked them down for about 12 hours in a crock pot.

Half way through I mushed most of them up with a food mill and dumped it all back into the crock pot and kept simmering it down to decent thickness.

I just got done canning them all, 8 half pints total.

113 I used to like raw oysters, but I gave them up a while ago after all the warnings about metals and toxins and whatever in them.


Metals and toxins travel up the food chain, so tuna and swordfish are susceptible to all the mercury that what they ate and what that ate all end up there.

Oysters are filter feeders, they just get whatever crap is in the water where they are.

Look up insulin index. That's actually a much indicator of the load given foods put on the body. Glycemic index is easier to measure and it does correlate, but not always.

The insulin index is a measure of how much insulin your body has to pump out to handle the glucose load a food is putting in your system.

For example, a ribeye steak has a non-zero insulin index, even though its glycemic index would be zero.

124 Had a family of ducks walk by my sliding door/window this morning. All pretty big. Is it wrong I was upset hunting season is several months off?

I used to live on a big lake and a man across the cove from me fed the wild ducks and geese all through the spring and summer, always closer and closer to his garage until they would literally waddle up into the garage to be fed. One day in the fall the door would close and they would never be seen again.

Making Italian tonight.... dish called Bosta. Maybe real Italians call it something else...a very simple dish...


One big white onion ( chop it up and throw it in the big pot on stove ) if you really love onions use two of 'em


a teaspoon and 1/2 of minced garlic ( throw it in there)


A pound of hot Italian sausage or more/less what evs
( make small or medium roundish balls of it...and throw it in the pot to brown )


Throw two large cans of diced tomatoes in the pot once the sausage has browned.


Pour a regular sized can of tomato sauce into the mix.


Throw in a couple of Bay leaves.


Cover a quarter of the top with Oregano.


Cover the whole top with Italian seasoning....then stir it all up...


Let the stuff cook for two hours... check on it occasionally to stir and to make sure your kitchen is not on fire.


If the Bosta seems too watery...thicken it with a small can of tomato paste... use two cans if you think it's still not think enough what evs.


Make some pasta shells when you are ready to eat.


Serve with some garlic bread or what evs.


Done.


It's a tasty dish that takes minimum time in the kitchen to prepare....and will serve a small gathering or serve one person for multiple meals. It's freezable for later as well. Good stuff.

202 Wow, I could never have uploaded that picture of the squirrel meat. That's because it contains a reflection (if one squints and looks closely) of the photographer.

Whenever I would take photos for one of my essays, it would always take an immense amount of time to "process" and select the photos for the report, and well over half that time was necessarily spent on a step I called "Reflections, shadows and cameras." In each photo chosen for publication, I would have to search every square inch of it for just those three things -- reflections that might reveal me, and also my shadow, and finally I make sure that my picture does not depict anyone else pointing a camera in my direction.

Only after all three elements are excluded is the picture deemed upload-worthy. You can't believe the number of great photos I've hd to reject because they contained a reflection of me. The squirrel-meat photo would be rejected, for this very reason.

True, but what I meant was that in the grocery stores around here, tasty tomatoes that don't transport or keep well are in the organic section and really photogenic ones that hold up well and taste like slightly bland water are in the general produce section. Not that the certification means anything by itself.

286 Big red mushrooms are likely amanita muscaras. They say they are poisonous, but not in the way that some amanitas are. They are hallucinogenic and it's rumored that the Viking beserkers used them before battle. In the place I used to live, there was a fad for amanita panterinas. They look like the muscaras but are brown with white spots. They do not mix well with alcohol, especially if you are a logger. Police were involved on that one.
You do need to be very careful though as some mushrooms can cause liver failure. Morels seem to be safe as they don't look like anything else and there aren't any poisonous ones I am aware of.

There are false morels here, but it's very easy to distinguish them with This One Weird Trick. True morels are hollow cavity all the way from the stem through the top of the cap, false morels have a cap attached to the stem at the top like an umbrella. Plus, false morels won't kill you outright*

320 The cookie recipe calls for light brown sugar as opposed to dark brown.

Mot sure how much more molassesy dark brown is, but could be they wanted the molasses flavor somewhere in between


The Internetz say you're on the money. According to Allrecipes.com, dark brown sugar has 2 tablespoons of molasses per cup of white sugar. Assuming light brown has half the molasses content of dark, in Joy's recipe, adding 1 tsp molasses to one cup light brown sugar takes you 1/3rd of the way to dark brown.

So, her recipe does finesse the brown sugar content.

Hi Fen. Votermom has been doing for a year and she feels great. If you look up the benefits you'll be surprised what vitamins and minerals you get from meat.

Creatine: it is responsible for energy reserve in your muscles and brain.

Carnosine: It works as an anti-oxidant and protects against degenerative processes.

DHA and PHA: It is an active form of omega-3, and the active form of omega-3 found in plants known as ALA cannot be effectively converted by our body.

More stable blood sugar too. Its too soon to tell really but i seem to sleep better and have better focus on my work. Hopefully blood pressure will improve.

Marinated overnight (ginger garlic soy fish sauce brown sugar cumin coriander pepper). Gotta be more attentive when it's on the grill, I over-did it a bit (best if it's barely pink in the middle ("middle" isn't much in stuff this thin). Only takes 3-5 min., total, to cook - but I was distracted by guests.


Peanut sauce came out very well (fresh raw peanut butter brown sugar coconut milk onion garlic ginger fish sauce sriracha), as did the simple cucumber salad (persian cucumbers with rice vinegar with sugar and a bit of salt).

A mother in law boiled some channel cat with some vinegar in the water once and then fried it. Called it that.

Did have a taste that leaned heavily towards lobster.

My friend, Dolcolax is your friend, my friend.

Your sweet merciful friend.

Truth be told, I was fine with almost pure protein diet until I hurt my back and had to take anti-inflammatory drugs. Which reduced... *that* output to zero. Enter Dolcolax. End of problem. Repeatedly. Hour after hour.

Half 'normal' dosage of anti-inflammatory drugs and half 'normal' dosage of Dolocolax is keeping me in both incessant pain and regular bowel... motions?

'Movements' sounds kinda gross. TMI?

380 So yesterday, we were delivered two live lobsters as a thank you gift from our friends-we watched their dog while they were on vacation in Maine. We cooked them last night with advice from my DIL's Mom. All I can say is that it was a lot of work to cook and a lot of work to eat, but pretty tasty all in all. I was not real happy about throwing the lobster in a pot of boiling water! However, we got it done. Any experiences by you food Morons on lobster preparation?

449 So many hunters have gotten away from actual hunting that most don't even know how to dress a squirrel, rabbit, etc. It's a shame because that's such a great way to introduce kids to a lifetime of walking around in the wilderness.

I personally enjoy squirrel dumplings, and they can be as easy or as complicated as you please. Some of the best I've ever had were just chicken broth, canned smack-em-on-the-counter biscuits pulled into chunks, and fresh squirrel from that day.

I've tried putting the meat in a pressure cooker for a bit prior to using it as intended, too, but haven't perfected it yet. I'm going to tinker with it in the instant pot this season.

If you read some of those now deleted tweets you'll see just highly Musk regards himself. Someone called him out on the pedo tweet and said that diver could sue him.

Musk replied "Bet ya a signed dollar it's true".

I think that means he thinks a dollar with his signature on it is some sort of highly valuable thing that people will just die to have.

If you win this bet, I'll give you a dollar signed by me, peasant.

By "conning" you mean "selling them space launch services"?

His rockets are real, they work, and they're vastly cheaper than the shit LockMart, Boeing, et al have been selling NASA for decades.

How is that "conning"? Be specific.

Terry Gilliam Comes Out As A Black Lesbian In Transition. Well....Sort of...

Terry Gilliam on diversity: 'I tell the world now I'm a black lesbian'

Speaking at a press conference at the Karlovy Vary film festival, where he was presenting his new film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, Gilliam said: “It made me cry: the idea that ... no longer six white Oxbridge men can make a comedy show. Now we need one of this, one of that, everybody represented... this is bullshit. I no longer want to be a white male, I don’t want to be blamed for everything wrong in the world: I tell the world now I’m a black lesbian... My name is Loretta and I’m a BLT, a black lesbian in transition.”


Like 'em or hate 'em...Monty Python can never be accused of unoriginality.

You see it in his parsing. "Unfair!" Only a lefty would use the word fair, since nothing is. "FOR OUR TIME!" Yes, of course, things are much better now, but back in the day we were really hip! "And NO Slave-Owners!" But, I can use the word poof, can't I? Apparently, black is still the most oppressed group. Even after they've had trillions of dollars thrown at them, they still can't overcome all their brilliance being sucked out of their brains by YT's brain-sucking technology.

I have to take issue with you on this. I use the concept of fairness all the time. It is an important concept with many real applications (not unlike the concept of a dimensionless point or a one dimensional line). The problem with leftists is that they don't understand what "fair" actually means and they like to just throw it around to steal some legitimacy for their asinine arguments.

38 Heh one of my cousins is 3 years ahead of Terry Gilliam. I never saw the post but he put something on FB about being a black women trapped in a skinny white dude body. And it was not laughed off by his family and then he did decide he was maybe trans and experimenting with girl clothes and nail polish. He was at another cousins wedding.

I don't know him well enough but wanted to Gibbs slap him and tell him to knock it off and just be a dad to his kids instead of trying to become a rarity. How trans can you possibly be if you were hetero enough to have a college sweetheart that you married and had kids with?

I dragged myself to a bruncheon given for a visiting (literature) professor from the Univ of Bordeaux.
Yes. A Frog.

At some point, not long into the chit-chat, a couple of profs began to apologize for Trump.
To my utter amazement the Frog raised his eyebrows and asked, "And what is it zat is wrong with ze Trump?"


They could. not. handle. this. They could not function.
"And how is zat?"
"Poof! Zis is just ze words!"
"Why do you say zat?"
"What is zis 'racisme' of which you speak?"
"What are ze particulars?"

OMG, it was gobsmackery.

As a closet conservative, I am very, very good at keeping a straight face in political discussions, but I cracked.
No, I didn't crack. I managed not to guffaw loudly.
But I did smile.
Okay. I chuckled.

I can't think about Cleese without thinking about his greasy-assed hair, a story I've told here before.

When he lived in Montecito, he used to shop at the same Vons where I shopped. Used to see him every so often while picking up groceries. Greasy hair, with dandruff. Always wore a blue bla*er, usually with jeans. Talked to him in the checkout line a couple of times. Nice enough guy, but it took herculean effort to ignore that hair.

Example 10,936 Why The Democrat Party Is Awful

Keith Ellison supports cop killers

That's not hyperbole. He really does, and our favorite socialist Bernie Sanders was in Minnesota to give aid and comfort to America's enemies....

Bernie Sanders came to town yesterday to support the candidacy of Minnesota Fifth District Rep. Keith Ellison for state attorney general. Sanders made appearances with Ellison at First Avenue in Minneapolis and at Denfeld High School in Duluth. I cannot imagine a political office for which Ellison is less fitted than the head of any organization devoted to law enforcement. Ellisonís candidacy is a disgrace, as is Sandersís support of his candidacy.

The Democrat party has not disavowed Sanders, nor will it. It matters not at all to them that he is a supporter of a political philosophy that is antithetical to everything on which our country was founded. That his political philosophy is responsible for the greatest mass-murders in world history is simply an inconvenient factoid to be swept under the carpet.

And lest you think that it is simply a philosophy that has not been executed correctly, try this link out for size. Yup...the economics of socialism is even stupider than the political philosophy! According to Marx, a hole dug with teaspoons is more valuable than one dug by a backhoe.

112 not sure what to think of investopedia's "labor of theory value" when in the second paragraph they mistakenly reversed the commodity values...

"The labor theory of value suggested that two commodities will trade for the same price if they embody the same amount of labor time, or else will exchange at a ratio fixed by the relative differences in the two labor times. For instance, if it takes 10 hours to hunt a deer, and 20 hours to trap a beaver, then the exchange ratio would be 2 beavers for 1 deer."

so, no. if labor equals cost, i deer (at 10 hrs) would be equal to 1/2 beaver (1 beaver at 20 hrs labor).

There were posts here several months ago that showed that Diane Feinstein and Pelosi used to be against illegal immigration.

I think it's because the leftist "system" of thought is inconsistent if not downright contradictory, and as certain factors change (like culture or demographics or what people can be duped into believing), Democrat politicians adapt: they realize the best way to hold onto political power and attract big donors is to stop supporting principle A and support principle B instead (principle B entailing "not A" as part of the scheme).

If today's leftists could be teleported back to Victorian England where destitute children were working in factories and getting mutilated by the machinery, they'd be like "Good! This nation is too white anyway. Get rid of whitey and get some Muslims in here, as payback for colonialism".

On February 2, 1990, Ellison published "Affirmative Action Does Not Make up for Past Injustice," an article advocating slavery reparations as well as the creation of a geographically self-contained "homeland" for black people:

No. Not tax-funded - the leftists would take that over in a heartbeat, and to a good approximation a lot of the US education is tax-funded now, which is part of the problem.

Instead what we need is government policy - perhaps including tax policy - that encourages online education, and that promotes the acceptance of credentials earned online, and backstopped by rigorous in-person testing.

156 CBD, interesting you make this comment, Marx and his labor theory is very interesting subject, especially since it is a major underpinning of gobs of social research.

Of course not only is it all wrong from a basic economic outcome basis (see Venezuela and Cambodia), a theoretical point of view of what drives an economy (see the Austrians) but while Marx was still alive it was taken apart by Eugen Bohm-Bauerwerk showing that Labor Value was a misreading of what was actually the "universal element that gave value to all things".

Bohm-Bauerwerk's rebuttal is not something that you find casually tossed around, but it is a deep analysis of Marx' theory, but not in refusal of it, but by stipulating that even if everything that Marx claimed to be correct, it still could not be valid because of the element of labor, and elements that had no labor input but still had value, like unimproved land, unmined mineral resources, and patents.

I suspect it based on his necessary and required commie contempt for bourgeois social convention, and his likely diminished sense of smell from his degraded old man olfactory function.

And there are rumors of modifications to Capitol Hill toilet bowls -- raising the seats 4 inches to keep
the older members' testicles from dipping into the water.

The Democrat Caucus is infused with Old Man Smell. When they open the doors after an intense members-only talking points forging session, it floods out into the hallway like a gray miasma, peeling the wallpaper and degrading the plaster.

In other words, socialism is the only answer. An incorrect answer to a question nobody asked.

237 Eighth grade science: there are two piles of dirt to be moved from point A to point B. A man with a shovel took three hours to move the dirt pile. A man with a tractor took 10 minutes to move his dirt pile.

Who did the most work?
Posted by: Braenyard at July 15, 2018 01:24 PM (V9ATq)


If the piles of dirt are the same size, then both men did the same amount of work; tractor guy just did it more efficiently. Plus, he helped the tractor manufacturer and the petro-chemical industry stay in business. And THEN, tractor guy quaffed a few brewksies and helped the micro-brewer stay in business while shovel guy was still d!cking around in the dirt pile.

Sunday Morning Book Thread 07-15-2018

folio seattle 03.jpg
Folio Library, Seattle, Washington


Good morning to all you 'rons, 'ettes, lurkers, and lurkettes. Oh, and we've got a new category of readers, escaped oafs and oafettes ('escaped oafs' is an anagram of 'Ace of Spades'). Welcome once again to the stately, prestigious, internationally acclaimed and high-class Sunday Morning Book Thread, a weekly compendium of reviews, observations, and a continuing conversation on books, reading, and publishing by people who follow words with their fingers and whose lips move as they read. Unlike other AoSHQ comment threads, the Sunday Morning Book Thread is so hoity-toity, pants are required. Even if it's these pants, which are so ugly, they're actually advertised as such.


Pic Note

Folio Library is an independent, nonprofit membership library located in Pike Place Market in Seattle,

...with a collection of around 20,000 books and memberships starting at $125 a year, with lower student and youth rates. Previously located farther south in the downtown YMCA building—closer to the downtown Seattle Public Library branch—it reopens in the market’s Economy Building at First Avenue and Pike Street with views of Elliott Bay on July 9.

The ADA-accessible facility will include three reading rooms and a kitchen, plus a public lobby where everyone, member or not, can browse some of the collection. Those who are visiting and want to explore a little deeper can buy daily or weekly memberships for $5 or $15, respectively.

Seattle also has a social justice library, set up by Edwin Lindo, a University of Washington law school professor and "lifelong activist" ( *eyeroll* ):

Edwin is so dedicated to creating a space for conversation that Estelitaís doesnít even have WiFi so people can stay engaged without getting distracted. In the future, Edwin said he hopes the library can host lectures, history lessons, poetry performances, and a book club.

A space for "conversations." Right. I'm sure he's interested in any opinion, be it left, wacko left, or really wacko left. I wonder if he would be open to a series of lectures on why the only solution to 3rd-world poverty is a free-market economy with minimal governmental regulations? Or, if Betsy DeVos wanted to speak on education, would "lifelong activist" Lindo even allow her inside his library?

Because the left is all about "having conversations."

There was a request last week for a book on a topic that interested me enough to turn it into a blog. A moron is look for a book, either fiction or non-fiction that:

Portray(s) the Northern Ireland "Troubles" of the 1960s-1990s in [an accurate] manner? The reason I ask is that of late I'm beginning to think that if there is an American Civil War 2.0, that's what it's going to be like -- not so much military movements, fronts, big battles, entire cities being cut off, etc. as it is an endless series of bombings, riots, assassinations, and other small-scale stuff in which a lot of innocent people get caught.

Posted by: Secret Square at July 08, 2018 12:32 PM (9WuX0)

I remember an Irish guy commenting on the difficuly in piecing together all of the disparate elements of the low-level war between Northern Ireland and England into an accurate picture by saying, "if you're not totally confused by the Troubles, you don't really know what's going on." That's pretty "Zen" for an Irish guy, but they drink a lot, so there you go. Anyway, near as I can understand, there are (or were) a number of different Irish groups fighting the British, buit they couldn't agree on goals or methods. And they all seemed to hate each other as much as they hated the British. That's the extent of my knowledge.

So do any of you morons have recommendations?


Moron Recommendations

More than one of you morons recommended Susan Wittig Albert's Beatrix Potter mysteries. There are a total of 8 novels in this series. The first one is The Tale of Hill Top Farm:

The author of Peter Rabbit and other tales, Beatrix Potter is still, after a century, beloved by children and adults worldwide. In this first Cottage Tale, Albert introduces Beatrix, an animal lover and Good Samaritan with a knack for solving mysteries. With help from her entourage of talking animal friends, Beatrix sets out to win over the human hearts of Sawrey, where she's just bought an old farm--and plans to stay.

This is how moron JTB describes the series:

Charming is the word that most people use and I agree. As I continue to read it, I see more and more Tolkien and Shire aspects in it. That may not be deliberate by Albert since it is based in an area and time that Tolkien clearly loved. To double check my impression, I re-read the Shire parts in LOTR, both the early chapters before things got serious and the concluding chapters of Return of the King. That similarity is very appealing to me. I was surprised none of the Amazon reviews mentioned it.

Posted by: JTB at July 08, 2018 09:43 AM (V+03K)

Susan Wittig Albert is a prolific author who has written many mysteries.

Books By Morons

Moron author Caliban wants you to know about his novel Starstruck, a romantic comedy which was published a few months ago:

Jim Wilmot is confused. A beautiful, mysterious maiden has fallen into his lap—literally! It isn’t clear what Karen has in mind, but he can’t help hoping it is love.

Meanwhile the girl who loves him beyond any shadow of a doubt has gotten tired of waiting and decides to move on. He’s shocked when Erin is cold to him and even more shocked when she becomes engaged to one of his best friends.

It turns out Karen has an astonishing secret, which Jim is the last one to know. He realizes what he really wants just when it seems impossible to get it.

But then a terrible accident changes everything...

Also available in paperback for $11.95.

___________

One of Elisabeth Wolfe's short stories will be published in a new fantasy anthology, Of Myths & Men: An Anthology

We think of magical creatures as being superhuman in every way. Their problems fascinate us because they are beyond anything we could possibly deal with ourselves.

But behind the super strength, extraordinary abilities, and fantastical back stories, these mythical beings have struggles and trials that are remarkably unremarkable.

Join us in discovering the humanity that beats in the hearts of these non-human creatures.

Teasers for the stories are available on the Witty Word Press Facebook page. For example, here is one for the story Ms. Wolfe co-wrote with Enola G. Freeman, titled The Holly Bears the Crown:

Frank Ross might seem like any other young man who’s struggling to care for a disabled sibling on low pay in a bad economy. But Frank’s in a bigger pickle than most: his brother Toby bears the stigmata, the marks of Christ’s Crucifixion, and bleeds in the presence of evil. When white supremacists riot in their neighborhood, Toby lands in the hospital alongside the best friend he’s never met and her three flatmates, all of whom are prophets. Yet this one day of intense suffering may bring all six of them a happy ending none of them have foreseen.


Available for Kindle $4.99 pre-order. It will be automatically delivered to purchasers' devices on July 21st.

Don't forget the AoSHQ reading group on Goodreads. It's meant to support horde writers and to talk about the great books that come up on the book thread. It's called AoSHQ Moron Horde and the link to it is here: https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/175335-aoshq-moron-horde.

___________

So that's all for this week. As always, book thread tips, suggestions, bribes, rumors, threats, and insults may be sent to OregonMuse, Proprietor, AoSHQ Book Thread, at the book thread e-mail address: aoshqbookthread, followed by the 'at' sign, and then 'G' mail, and then dot cee oh emm.

What have you all been reading this week? Hopefully something good, because, as you all know, life is too short to be reading lousy books.

5 Just finished the eighth book in the Flavia de Luce mystery series, “Thrice the Brindled Cat Hath Mewed”. Alan Bradley has only gotten better over time.

I love that Flavia is so unrepentant. “As the train rolled through the winter landscape, I reflected on what a true stick Dogger was. As an old soldier, nothing surprised him. He had quite willingly taught me how to palm the queen of spades when playing Black Lady with Feely and Daffy, and he had not begged off when I asked him to help me extract, for a practical joke involving Feely’s Eau de Violet scent, certain of the volatile terpines from the caudal gland of a dead badger I had found in the woods.”

6 Lindo's whatever library, the whole SJW thing aside, sounds like it's not much interested in books since it appears that having a book club is more of an aside than an actual goal.

Call me crazy, but, I'd think book club and library should go hand in hand.

That seems a common factor in the history, not just of Ireland, but of the Celts of the British Isles generally. Whenever they had a chance to unite to resist England, they seem to have preferred settling old scores instead. (I don't know if this is true of the Bretons. Does anyone here have some knowledge?)

This week I started studying the Catechism of the Catholic Church put out by the USCCB. It is illuminating what the official[b/] teachings of the church are and what is many times claimed by bishops and priests.

What is stated about immigration and refugees is very interesting for example. Hint: it is required they adopt the rules, both legal and societal, of the new land. Illegal breaching of borders - no bueno.

22 I read Bold Sons of Erin by Owen Parry. This is the sixth book in the Abel Jones series. In this, Major Jones is sent by President Lincoln to his home county of Schuylkill, PA, to investigate the murder of a Union general. To solve the case, Abel becomes involved with Irish miners and a witch or two. This is a very good mystery, and, as a bonus, the book ends with a description of the horrors of the Battle of Fredericksburg.

I also read SPQR XI: Under Vesuvius. Decius Metellus travels south from Rome to Campania as praetor peregrinus . It's his job to hear cases involving foreigners; and he's expecting a year's vacation with little work and pleanty of time to enjoy the sun, good food and excellent wines in the rich coastal town of Baiae. Then the murdered bodies begin to stack up and Decius must unravel the mystery and find the killer.

26 Howdy, Horde.

This week I read Boca Mournings, the "wacky Florida" tale of a retired Jewish Boston cop, by Steven Forman. It was surprisingly good. It's the second offering in a trilogy (which I didn't know going in).

I included the religious reference because Forman notes the heavy Jewish presence in Boca Raton and also brings in Jewish history WRT one of the characters in the Aryan Army.

The author has an excellent ear for dialogue and could be a member of the Horde as well as the Tribe.

Not an expert, but this is way off.

The "Provisional IRA" was by far the dominant force starting in 1969. Although there were splinter groups, there wasn't in-fighting like what you describe.

The Provos saw themselves as the successor to the old IRA which had become redundant in the Republic and which had petered out in the North, but it's not an apt analogy.

A fascinating history could be written about how the Irish nationalist movement continually looked to the United States for inspiration from as far back as 1776. This happened again in the 1960s as the Catholics in the North were inspired by the US black civil rights movement and tried to imitate it. But the Brits and the Ulster Unionists didn't take it well, to put it mildly.

"Bloody Sunday," a flick directed by Brit director Paul Greenglass, shows how the bloody and deadly suppression of a peace movement shifted support to the bomb-throwing Provos.

39 Has anybody read The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern? It was a selection of the book group I'm in and one guy, who knows my tastes pretty well, predicted I'd hate it. I'm sure he based that on a lot of former experiences but he was wrong about this because I'm loving it. It reads like a Robertson Davies book about magic and the strange people who practice it and are around them. It's the first book by the author and she definitely knows what she's doing in terms of telling a story. Someone elsewhere, an author himself, told me the ending is a bit of a letdown, and after the labyrinth she's constructed I can see that closing it down could be problematic, but that won't detract from what she's already done.

46 For anyone interested in the ETO in WWII, "If You Survive" by George Wilson is one of the best battle memoirs that I have ever read. His accounts of St. Lo, where he became the fourth commander of his platoon in two days and went from 40 men to six effectives in a day and a half in the hedgerows, to the Huertgen Forest, where the company he led lost 138 out of 150 men including all his officers, all his noncoms, all his medics, and 90 riflemen in 24.hours, are horrific.
His writing is clear, straightforward, and honest. Reading his story I found myself wondering yet again, Where do we get such men?"

48 I haven't read this book, but it sounds interesting:

"Everything Happens For a Reason (and other lies I've loved) by Kate Bowler.

I read his description from a church newsletter:

While researching America's Prosperity Gospel movement , Kate Bowler was saddened by its implications-namely that Good is present in people's triumphs, but not in their suffering, and that every aspect of your life is either your fault or your reward. When Bowler was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer at age 35. the prosperity minded messages of well wishes made cancer seem like a punishment.

In her book Bowler asks, "What would it mean for Christians to give up a little bit of the American dream that says, "You are limitless"?. The Mighty Kingdom of God is not yet here in its fulness. What if rich did not mean "wealthy" and "whole" did not mean "healed. What if being people of the Gospel meant that we are simply people of Good news, God is here. We are lived. It is enough."

______________________________________

I am absolutely opposed to the Prosperity Gospel Movement. It don't think it IS the Gospel (which is about the saving power of Jesus Christ), and I think it (PG) does a lot of damage to people. I also think God has a plan-that we be transformed into the image of Christ and that the Kingdom of God might come in its fullness, but I think it's spiritual abuse to tell people it's their fault for things that are clearly not and to attribute that to God.

52 "Cardiac Arrest" by Howard Root.

An out-of-control, arrogant DOJ did NOT start with Mueller! This is an appalling case study, by a DOJ target who stood up to them and won.

Had he not been a multimillionaire, I suspect Root would have been just as helpless & screwed as Michael Flynn.

64 A fascinating incident in Irish history is the Curragh Mutiny of 1914.

Irish Nationalists won Home Rule -- an Irish Parliament for local matters -- after decades of political haggling in the UK Parliament. The House of Lords vetoed it. When it later passed, the Ulster Unionists threatened to revolt against the Catholics in the North, and there was large scale gun-running abetted by the UK military. A true civil war loomed in the North. Then UK military officers with Unionist sympathies announced they would resign if the Crown acted against the Ulster Unionists. All this on the eve of WWI.

With Home Rule killed in its crib by the UK Deep State, Irish Nationalists took a different path.

71 For my sins, I've been reading the Hugo Awards nominees packet for this year.

ALL the short fiction noms (short story, novella, novelette) are by women. Only about a quarter of them are actually science fiction stories. In none of them is there anything resembling a plot.

Of the six novels nominated, four are by women (one of whom has a mental illness that makes her think she's a man).

If an insufficiency of women and/or minorities in a given profession is proof of systemic racism/sexism, then what are we to deduce from this year's Hugo ballot?

Yep, so was the old IRA. For over 50 years, Irish governments had socialist leanings, with awful results for the Irish economy. Then they grew up, and Ireland now has a per capita GNP higher than Britain, and is ranked #2 in world rugby, above #4 England.

76 I found a book, "The Boys War" Scholastic, 1990. It's about boys in the Civil War who enlisted at less than 16 years of age. A lot of boys did that as there was no way to verify age in most cases. This was regular army, not as drummers or such. Most were looking for adventure and had no idea what they were getting into.

One of the youngest was Johnny Clem, who did enlist as a drummer at 11, but earned the nickname "Johnny Shiloh" after a shell destroyed his drum and he picked up a musket. He became a sergeant in the fall of 1863 and made it to the end of the war.

The Civil war was the last time drummer boys were used in battle. Something like 40k drummers were under 16.

I had the good fortune to be able to travel to Edinburgh once - delightful city, in the summer - and there are some memorials and other historical remembrances around that reference a time of "troubles" in Scotland, after the Jacobite rebellion had failed but unrest and sporadic killing went on for a long time. I was most struck by a plaque in the Haymarket (now a popular dining spot with many restaurants) that noted the site of a famous gallows, and later a homemade guillotine. Said that this spot saw at least one execution (often more than one) every day for at least 30 years or so. And that was out of a city population that was probably only about 100,000 at the time.

The way you phrase that is unclear. It could be taken as "importation to the US or Britain", and of course you couldn't have slaves in Britain. But we first restricted the immigration. Also, because of their long friendship, the Portuguese were for some time partly exempted from the Brit suppression of the slave trade. They were supposed to bring slaves only to Brazil, but - just imagine - many of the trader cheated.

112 This week the headaches have continued, so I've stuck with some historical essays by J H Hexter, and some Michael Gilbert mystery/suspense.

The former is very much my kind of historian. In his own words, he is an extreme "splitter" and spends a lot of time attacking the "lumpers". (Toynbee and Spengler are paradigm examples of lumpers, as is Marx.) Especially fun is his evisceration of the left-wing historian Christopher Hill. One of his ongoing wars is against the defninitions-of-convenience much loved of some historians. The sort that end up defining Queen Elizabeth as bourgeois, or St Francis of Assisi as a man of the Renaissance.

Gilbert, who was actually a conservative (he was the Tory party's solicitor under Maggie), is amazingly even handed on politics. You cannot predict how the good guys and bad guys will split, politically. Or even if they will be really good guys (Queen Against Karl Mullen). Flash Point is a particularly apt one for today - a picture of the Deep State at work to cover one of their own. And even Commies end up help the hero. But ultimately what I like about him is the picture of England he paints throughout.

And, of course, some naval history. Can't live without that. Story about that addiction: Long, long ago, in HS, I had a massive crush on a girl. Until that time I'd never gotten up the nerve to ask a girl out. So I put all my naval books in a pile and made an oath not to touch them until I asked her. She ended up as my first girlfriend, and we went out through the end of HS.

113 Honestly, I know of no quality literature produced from either the Irish Troubles or The Dirty War. You would think both would have provided much grist for the mill, but you would be disappointed. I suspect that most folks just think these countries are tad retarded and, thus, have no expectation for any penetrating self awareness or observation. Or it could be that we few authors that can think outside of the approved narratives? Or, more likely, we have no publishers that will support the truly honest assessments of our times. If you hire nothing but Ivy Leaguers to review books, you will never be surprised by their recommendations.

116 Long ago and far away, I read two books about Ireland that I impressed me-

"Strumpet City"

and "Farewell Companions"

Both by James Plunkett.

Neither is about the "Troubles" of 1960-90, per se.

But, SC relates events around WWI and FC brings the story up to the end of WWII-

and you can see the issues and events that begin to create the mix for "Troubles" to get rolling.

I was hoping he'd do a third to bring things up to the 60's...but it was not to be.

Plunkett, if I remember correctly, seems like a fairly hard leftist. But, does a great job with his characters, motivations, etc. so, it's not just cardboard cutouts spouting off for the author.

Of course, the Ireland he writes about is no more.

Many have noticed the resemblance & posted about it at other blogs.

Anthony Burgess was always peeved that out of all the things he wrote, "Clockwork" was the only one that became a big popular hit. It is often described as a "novella," although "short story" works fine for me.

120 The law banning the importation of slaves to the US was passed in 1807 but it did not take effect until 1808. The act of Parliament took effect in 1807 so they banned it first.


It has been said that the US act was not there to protect the slaves. It was there to protect the people who bought and sold slaves in the US.

121 Talk about taking something simple and unnecessarily making it complicated. The United States passed the Act Prohibiting Slave Importation of 1807 on March 2, 1807 and Britain's Parliament passed similar act on March 25,1807.

127 I am absolutely opposed to the Prosperity Gospel Movement. It don't think it IS the Gospel (which is about the saving power of Jesus Christ), and I think it (PG) does a lot of damage to people. I also think God has a plan-that we be transformed into the image of Christ and that the Kingdom of God might come in its fullness, but I think it's spiritual abuse to tell people it's their fault for things that are clearly not and to attribute that to God.

According to a friend who went to school in Belfast (he was Canadian, but his father was a physician there), the violence was roach upon roach. You had your Catholic Free Shit Army, and your Protestant Free Shit Army, and egged on by demagogues and outside agitators, they fought one another. Middle and upper class Catholics and Protestants got along fine. And both sides fought the British Army, which was tasked with trying to keep the peace.

Me too. What I have noticed is this: if you try to live a Godly life, a byproduct of that is prosperity. The more you resist temptation, the more time you have to make your/yours life better. I have read the bible through twice, and nowhere in there did I find the promise of material wealth if you adhere to the Gospel.

136 113 Honestly, I know of no quality literature produced from either the Irish Troubles or The Dirty War. You would think both would have provided much grist for the mill, but you would be disappointed. I suspect that most folks just think these countries are tad retarded and, thus, have no expectation for any penetrating self awareness or observation. Or it could be that we few authors that can think outside of the approved narratives? Or, more likely, we have no publishers that will support the truly honest assessments of our times. If you hire nothing but Ivy Leaguers to review books, you will never be surprised by their recommendations.

The Governor on the new planet is corrupt and the Marines don't know if they should side with the Locals or the "Government"

147 Raindogs by Adrian McKinty is a terrific and hilarious mystery set in Northern Ireland during the troubles. I realized just what it was like to live during a low-grade civil war.
Sean Duffy may be the only Catholic detective in the Royal Constabulary who must deal with the Prods, the IRA, and the British Secret Service in turn. The beginning scenes about Muhammed Ali visiting Dublin highlights McKinty's writing skills and wit - it could not be better. Fortunately, it's #5 in the Sean Duffy series, so afterwards you can start with the 1st. I was so excited when I read Rain Dogs that I had to read with great delight all of them and every new one as it come out.

Along with Beneath a Scarlet Sky, it is one of the books I keep recommending and giving away to friends.

I can't put my hand on it right now, but you might check Norman Friedman's Fifty Years' War. His discussion is brief, but the footnotes would point you further. I do recall that he cites Amnesty International's number showing that the alleged Pinochet body count is extremely inflated by the left.

I do think it's unreasonable to treat people killed in a civil war as the same kind of victims as those killed after it is won. And yes, I admit that means that some of Lenin's and Mao's victims fall into this class. Some, but a minority.

I escorted a Royal Marine Colonel to our Mess Night at Quantico back in the early 1980s. He had served several tours in Northern Ireland. His stories were quite jolting. The one that stands out is the retired Irish Catholic Royal Navy sailor who liked to chum it up with the Royal Marines while on patrol in his neighborhood. Seems the IRA thought he needed to be taught a lesson. They visited him one night and promptly kneecapped both of his knees. The guy was in his seventies and just missed the comradeship between sailors and Marines.

1. Well, yes, but Churchill was cagey enough to avoid a complete commitment to do so (as was DeGaulle).

One other thing they helped out with, I hadn't known until fairly recently, was the fighter direction methods which arose first from the RAF, and then developed further by the RN. When HMS Victorious served with us in the Pacific, we got their input. I got this from Friedman's Fighters Over the Fleet*.

2. The timing for the dissolution of the empire was particularly unfortunate for the former colonies. It came exactly at a time when the three-bong-hit socialism of my youth was maximally in vogue. And they paid dearly for that. (At least India seems to have straightened out some. And Singapore never fell for it.)

*Yes, he is my favorite living author. He has a new one, which was supposed to come out last month. But as always seems to happen with him, the book has been delayed. No doubt to ship at the same time as N A M Rodger's next, just to hit my bank account as badly as possible.

Shane was classmates and friends with Thomas Dolby. He had an encyclopaedic knowledge of music and pointed Dolby in the direction of punk before punk was a thing.

Dolby's memoir The Speed of Sound is a good telling of the beginning of New Wave and Electronica.

So now you know how a bastard Kenyan ended up in Indonesia and as President was quite comfortable undermining his own country using the CIA. Its a family tradition.

I guarantee I have used Amazon longer than most, way back when they sold books for a living. Now people use if for groceries and even instant delivery chow. Amazon is smart, they get you to depend on it first, the SJW comes later.

215 I have read that the Scots were an Irish/Celtic tribe that migrated from Ireland to Scotland when the Picts were the predominant force there. I realize that migrations during the time of the Roman hegemony were primarily about the acquisition of land. But, I find the Scottish migration particularly interesting because of the difference between our contemporary Irish and Scottish. I realize that the modern Scots are an amalgamation of Scotti, Picts, Anglo-Saxons, various Scandinavian groups, Normans, and other Celtic groups. Think of the gross characterizations of the Irish and the Scottish. The Irish are characterized as what we would call right-brained, the Scottish are characterized as left-brained. Think of it as Arts/Imagination vs. Logic/Mathematics. The Irish have a loquacious charm, the Scots are a taciturn people. The Irish lilt is melodic, the Scottish brogue sounds rather harsh. The Irish have wonderful music, the Scots have one of the most obnoxious sounding instrument in the world as their representative. The Irish are characterized as being generous and friendly, the Scots as unfriendly skinflints. The Scots have a history of notable scientists, inventors, engineers, and mathematicians, the Irish, meh. They both like to drink, although the Irish have a reputation for liking it too much. They both have some of the most beautiful women in the world. I like to picture the initial migration of the Scots away from Ireland as being a familial separation. I like to think he Scots were sick of the laid back personality of the other Irish because they were unorganized, flighty, and tended to be artistic pansies, as opposed to being pragmatic, hard-working haggis eating assholes.

That is possibly the highest praise you can give a book.

I'm also rereading a different translation of The Master and Margarita which reads much less clunky than the censored version I bought from the commie fucks at Lighthouse Books in San Franshitsco, which dovetails nicely with it, particularly when the Devil shows up in Moscow and starts doing magic tricks and doesn't take kindly to party apparatchiks demanding that he explains how he does his tricks. There's some debate on how much Stalin liked Bulgakov with "like" being a problematic term for a mass murdering tyrant. It could just mean that Bulgakov's disfigured body was found in a mass grave with only half his fingernails pulled out.

Stalin had a weird hardon for US movies, on which the movie "The Inner Circle" was based which is highly recommended. Can you imagine if he commissioned Meathead to do "Stand By Me" only instead of four kids camping finding a dead body you have a group of polack kids finding Katyn? And blaming it on Drumpf.

I have cut my amazon purchases by around 95% over the last year. Walmart, ebay and the rest of the big box retailers have definitely upped their game.

It's not for lack of trying. Every session of Congress that he was in, Charlie Rangel would submit a bill to re-institute the draft. He quite openly stated that he had no interest in military preparedness and it was a matter of trying to get young adults pissed off enough to take to the streets. He understood that for the young rank-and-file in the 60s, the draft was one of the most important factors getting them to be politically active in leftist circles.

Anthony Burgess

disclaimer: I'm a fan of his work.

Now, that "my wife raped by GIs story": I submit the ward "alleged" needs to go in front of that story. The only source for it is Burgess himself.

Burgess was a prodigious liar. I doubt he would deny that charge very vehemently. Telling tall tales was part of his persona.

His first wife was a highly promiscuous drunk, who died as a result of her alcoholism.

Burgess was more-or-less anti-American, which may have played into the alleged rape allegation. He visited the USSR & wrote admiringly of it... often.

There is a pretty good bio of Burgess called (appx), "The Complete Truth About Anthony Burgess." The title is intended to be ironic, since he was inscrutable & inconsistent. The one thing EVERYONE who has studied Burgess' life can agree on is, he had a very casual relationship with facts on record.

somewhere on humanprogress.org is an article wherein it is argued that western civ didn't really get going until trade routes to the East opened up and coffee beans came to Europe. Coffee supplanted booze as the preferred morning beverage. So the European tradesman started his day wired and alert, rather than relaxed and maybe a bit inebriated.

Right - there was the John Snow cholera thing e.g., but I couldn't remember if people took that as an amusing oddity and went right back to dumping waste in the water sources or actually learned from it.

I have a suspicion that it's more likely that people boiled water because they wanted tea or coffee and the benefit of boiling it was completely overlooked.

And don't make waves, or else it'll show up on your kids' records. Which the colleges are looking at.

Well, I'd heard you guys describe that scene as the worst thing ever set to paper, and when it came, I thought, "Oh. Yeah, OK." From y'all's descriptions I thought it was a sexual thing, but no. She had to have the hyper-spice that either kills you or gives you the weird trance. There is no more spice left on Arrakis though, so the only source of it would be in the flesh of a sand worm. And Leto's the only sand worm around. It was odd, but if it hadn't been for you guys going on and on and on about it, I wouldn't even have noticed that it was kind of outre.

My take was that Charlie was cognizant that the best social program for saving youts from the streets was the US Military. That, and the fact that forcing the classes and races of the US to mix under egalitarian circumstances was all to the good. Then there is the old idea that young men should be serve their country's defense needs as an act of basic citizenship.

326 Watching the World Cup as my quadrennial soccer game that I actually watch. It's OK, but I can see why it doesn't interest me otherwise.


All team sports with goals/goalies can produce winners who are mostly beaten on the field. Current situation is a good example - both France's goals come from rules, not play (a dive that was deemed a real foul, a ball hitting some guy's hand by chance, immaterial to the play).


Boring. Soccer even suffers from boring penalty shots - don't know the %s, but I'm sure the goalie's chance is a tiny fraction of that in ice hockey, where the goalie has a 70-80% chance of prevailing.

Somewhat unrelated, I bought Norm McDonald's book "Based on a True Story." Anyone who knows anything about Norm McDonald must know what they're getting their hands on here. And apparently someone came to him about writing his autobio... to which he sorta said yes, but then turned in this book.

It's known to be partially true (hence the title), and partially... well, Norm. And yet still, reviewers are complaining, because they don't believe it's all true.

I quite enjoyed Deathride by John Mosier. The basic premise is that both Nazi Germany and the USSR lost the war. It just took the USSR longer to die of wounds. He examines the essential crazy of each side using stories of potential great warriors of each side who.were destroyed by their own lunatic system.

One thing I noticed a couple of years ago, watching a US soccer team play a Brit team at a stadium in Cincinnati -- the huge field might make the players look small on tv, but they're not. Once you're at field level these guys are pretty imposing. I don't think I saw one player less then about six foot two to six foot four, two hundred pounds easy, a ton of leg muscle.

If they had helmets and pads on they'd look like any American football teams running back.

No, they got both. The standard ration in the British Royal Navy in the Age of Sail was one gallon of beer and one pint of grog per day.

The lime juice ration was often mixed into the grog to ensure that the men drank it.

Posted by: ro-man at July 15, 2018 12:07 PM (RuIsu)


That's actually a good example of the slippery way historical eras are used. Since it's bad, we call it "Medieval". This despite the fact that what is said is equally true of the Renaissance and Enlightenment eras (and all earlier ones.)

But the Renaissance is the worst. Jacques Barzun called it a movable feast. And C S Lewis said it really referred to anything the speaker approved of between 1200 and 1700. Hexter, whom I've already cited, came to the conclusion that the term should just be dropped. It's just too lacking in content or reference beyond meaning "good". Sort of the reversal of Orwell saying that "fascism" had come to mean nothing more than "something not desirable."

he needn't say that - it's not true. they're not our enemy, we are their enemy. as they say, it's a feature not a bug, of the e.u. vision - that the u.s. would eventually be their enemy.

The Brits could be brutal, but like the Romans, they usually left good things behind.

Ironically, it can be argued that the Brits were the most brutal and least merciful on the ones who looked just like them, the Irish.

426 Bye, bye, anti-American DiFi:

Longtime California Senator Dianne Feinstein lost the California Democratic Party's endorsement in a stunning vote Saturday night at the party's executive board meeting in Oakland. Though the vote was expected to be close, state Senator Kevin de Leon rather easily crossed the 60 percent threshold necessary for endorsement.

De Leon secured 65 percent of the vote among the 333 executive board members present. Feinstein garnered 7 percent, and "no endorsement" took 28 percent. De Leon only took 54 percent of the vote at the state party convention in February. Virtually every undecided vote going into the executive board needed to flip to get this big a number.

He might say that, but it makes no sense. A pint of grog (measured after mixing with water) isn't nearly enough to prevent dehydration, especially for men doing heavy work.

They got water or (preferably) small beer in addition to the grog ration.

I recently read a very good biography about Thomas Meagher, and had no idea just how horrific the Crown's treatment of the Irish was. Absolutely brutal. Meagher was a vocal opponent and was sent to Tasmania as a political prisoner. He escaped and became the voice of the Irish in America and fought admirably in the Civil War before moving to Montana to try setting up a new Ireland.


Really compelling read. Blanking on the author's name.
