Quote of the Day I

It seems like this is another example of not focusing on the evil here. It's evil. It's ISIS. It's radical Islam.  At some point we are going to get a president that is going to say 'I care about destroying ISIS.'

Chicago Sun-Times Reporter Neil Steinberg Tries To Get In On the OMG-It's-Too-Damn-Easy-To-Buy-A-Gun Action, Fails Miserably

Sometimes the system works.

I was looking forward to shooting my new rifle the next day. I've shot guns. It's fun. I was worried though, about having fun with guns in the current environment of outrage and horror. Had I been co-opted by the purchase process? . Oh well, I thought, no harm in a gun story reflecting the gun owner's perspective.

At 5:13 Sarah from Maxon called. They were canceling my sale and refunding my money. No gun for you. I called back. Why? "I don't have to tell you," she said. I knew that, but was curious. I wasn't rejected by the government? No. So what is it? "I'm not at liberty," she said .

A few hours later, Maxon sent the newspaper a lengthy statement, the key part being: "it was uncovered that Mr. Steinberg has an admitted history of alcohol abuse, and a charge for domestic battery involving his wife."

Well, didn't see that coming.

Was Hillary Selling National Security Panel Posts, Expedited Background Checks?

In 2011, when she was serving as secretary of state, Clinton and her top staff chose a major donor with no qualifications for an important national security panel. Not only that, but they also hurried through a top-secret clearance for him.

According to emails released under a Freedom of Information request by the group Citizens United, State Department staff were pressured to fast-track the high security clearance for Rajiv Fernando, a 29-year-old securities trader who had given $5 million for the Clinton Foundation and has raised money for Clinton's current campaign.

After ABC News began investigating Fernando's appointment, emails show that State Department press staffers panicked amongst themselves, knowing that Fernando's name had been moved ahead of qualified security experts at the explicit request of Clinton's chief of staff, Cheryl Mills.

The Inevitable Wages of Socialism:  Food Riots and Looting

With delivery trucks under constant attack, the nation's food is now transported under armed guard. Soldiers stand watch over bakeries. The police fire rubber bullets at desperate mobs storming grocery stores, pharmacies and butcher shops. A 4-year-old girl was shot to death as street gangs fought over food.

Venezuela is convulsing from hunger.

Hundreds of people here in the city of Cumaná, home to one of the region's independence heroes, marched on a supermarket in recent days, screaming for food. They forced open a large metal gate and poured inside. They snatched water, flour, cornmeal, salt, sugar, potatoes, anything they could find, leaving behind only broken freezers and overturned shelves.

And they showed that even in a country with the largest oil reserves in the world, it is possible for people to riot because there is not enough food.

Meanwhile China is trying to claw back its pound of Venezuelan flesh.

The Glorious Brotherhood of Equality in Communism

"North Korea is trying to avoid food shortages by ordering more people to leave their regular jobs and spend 30 days (May 15- June 15) helping out with planting the rice crop. This year it includes university students. If you have the money, you can bribe your way out of this chore. About a third of the students manage to pay the bribe. That is annoying enough but then about a third of the students who go to the farms get out of about half the work because they are those who work as informers for the government."

University To Drop Its Math Requirement, Replace It With Diversity Courses

This ongoing SJW circle jerk in academia has not gone unnoticed:

A new study by my company and Beyond.com called "The Multi-Generational Job Search," found that only 2% of employers are actively recruiting liberal arts degree holders. Compare that to the 27% that are recruiting engineering and computer information systems majors and 18% that are recruiting business majors.

What's more, 49% of all generations responded that they believe there are "no jobs" out there for those with a liberal arts degree.

Spinach and How an Academic Urban Legend Can Spread

The following quote, including the reference, is taken from an article published by K. Sune Larsson in the Journal of Internal Medicine:
The myth from the 1930s that spinach is a rich source of iron was due to misleading information in the original publication: a malpositioned decimal point gave a 10-fold overestimate of iron content [Hamblin, 1981]. (Larsson, 1995: 448-449)
The quote caught my [Rekdal's] attention for two reasons. First, it falsified an idea that I had carried with me since I was a child, that spinach is an excellent source of iron. The most striking thing, however, was that a single decimal point, misplaced 80 years ago, had affected not just myself and my now deceased parents, but also a large number of others in what we place on our table.

Woman Climbs a Skyscraper Using Only A Vacuum Cleaner

Except with the regular tile attachment replaced with industrial grade suction pads. Part of a campaign by LG showing off their CordZero vacuum cleaners.

First, they had to find a daredevil to strap two of the machines to his or her back. Once 22-year-old 2015 U.S. Extreme Rock Climbing bronze medalist Sierra Blair-Coyle was partnered with LG, the logistics began. Using only regular, off-the-shelf CordZero models, engineers replaced the regular tile attachment with industrial grade suction pads. The suction pads do not stick on their own, but require a constant supply of air to create a firm seal. Next, LG located a 460-foot tall, 33-storey skyscraper in the Songdo International Business District, which is about 40 miles southwest of Seoul, South Korea.

The last part of the planning involved the safety ropes. While LG trusted its technology, a safety line was required. With that in place, along with about 30 GoPro cameras, Blair-Coyle began the climb. She made great time, considering that she had to power each suction pad on and off every time she moved. At around the halfway point in the climb, the vacuums were swapped out for ones with fresh batteries. The CordZero has a battery life of 40 minutes, but no one was taking any chances during the climb. Even with the pause to swap out batteries, and the extra weight of two vacuums, Sierra completed the climb in 30 minutes.

24 Chicago recorded its 300th homicide this weekend and tallied six others over a 60-hour period that saw 55 people shot, 13 fatally, from Friday afternoon through early Monday morning.

So far this year, close to 1,800 people have been shot across the city and more than 200 of those wounded have died from their wounds




They need better aim.



A total of 306 people have been killed this year, by shooting, stabbing or other means.




So about 100 have died from being stab. Time to outlaw knives.

41 Interesting show on ID. This guy killed girlfriend and then, as an apparent alibi, shot himself twice in the head. Used a .22 rifle and shot himself beneath the chin up through the head. He stayed "in character" as he went, bleeding profusely, to a neighbor's and told his tragic story of ambush by drug dealers and struggling against EMTs and police to return to his apartment and help his girlfriend.

He got 100 years plus 10 for using a gun.

I like the grilled chicken club, but there are other things you can do. You can take either the regular or spicy sandwich, get it without pickles, and take it "to go" with the buns packed separately. When you get home, drop the chicken in a separate baking dish, add a small $0.25 can of tomato sauce on top, cover with cheese and nuke. Take the buns and smear with a butter/olive-oil/parmesan mix and broil for about 60 seconds. Instant chicken parmagiana, with side of garlic bread.

If Trump survives Cleveland and is on the ballot Nov, I will vote for him, but how in the name of God is he even going to have a chance if he can't raise enough funds? This is ORCA x1000 double-plus-ungood.

Unless he has a, *ba-dum*, Trump card, .

184 I was thinking about President Galtieri of Argentina. He had support of the important parts of Argentina up to the point of the surrender to the Brits.

The Argies were willing to put up with repression, death squads, arrest, hyper inflation, random violence and starvation as long as it was in support of something, anything.
And then that thing, military might and prestige, failed with the surrender.

I swear Maduro has only one thing left, oil. It is the only prestige thing left. If the port burns, or the refineries blow up, or something destroys the logistics and prevents movement, even Maduro's government henchmen and probable co-defendants will head for the jungle hoping to make it to the border ahead of the angry mobs.

they filmed it on a cell phone

195 Sun set a little while ago over Long's Peak, up near Rocky Mountain National Park. The clouds plus the smoke from the fires made the front range look like a Bierstadt painting.

And now we get the full moon rising out of the eastern plains.

The light was pink, then red, then salmon-colored over to the west, but the high puffies above me were bright, and the landscape all around looked somehow yellowish.

If that is a word.

Was at Red Rocks last night for the Bob Dylan concert and the moonrise was earlier, but clouds obscured it when it came up. Later when it got full dark, it was bright and clear over the southern cliff wall of the ampitheater. A storm way way down Pueblo-way made for a light show that looked like a bombing raid on something big. Really big.

Bob's a little shaky and unsteady on his feet, his voice real gravelly, but he was good doing the crooner-ballads.

Full house. End of a hot day, everyone in shorts and tees. You know what is really good to watch at a concert? The girl that does the signing for the deaf. Two of them last night, fabulous performers.

The band was outstanding. Three guitarists, the rightmost set up with two sit-down steels, and a banjo, a uke or tenor guitar, couldn't tell, and a mandolin.

I put one of those oldstyle chimney antennas in my attic and it works better than those pseudo HD antennas they try to sell on TV. Plus, I bought a Kodi which will give me any cable channel I want to watch. Or, any movie ever made plus many that are still in the theaters, all for free. I mostly use it to watch baseball and I can take it to Florida and still watch my Detroit teams. All you need is a good WiFi connection and unlimited data.

But they do have a common theme. A red red thread that runs through them all. Islam, in case you couldn't guess.

There are other group that practice terror. The Zeta cartel and their main competitor. The Kurdish YPK. I'm sure there are others that are not Islamic in nature, but they act mainly for control of territory. Their terrorist acts seldom leave the territory they desire, nor do they attack anyone but those they believe hinder their goals. They act locally.

Islamic terror is world-wide. It knows no boundaries, as world conquest is the goal. Their 'preachers' constantly say the same thing yet our leaders refuse the evidence of their ears and eyes.

At our peril.

246 I actually don't think Hillary will ever be President even if she wins. There's still bad blood between Obama and the Clintons. I have a feeling that he'll be like "Good. We won. Ms. Lynch, press the charges. All of them. We'll swear in (insert VP here) instead."

He's petty enough to do crap like that.

300 Trump could always choose to take the federal preezy election funds, though the amount may be quite small since the # of people checking that box on the 1040 has fallen massively since 2007.

The Presidential nominee of each major party (one whose candidate received more than 25% of the vote in the previous election) may become eligible for a public grant of $81.78 million (if the election were held in 2007).

One problem there -- Trump then couldn't spend his own dough on the general election, nor collect contributions in general.

Hi, my name is Leslie and I'm an internet addict.

Or is commenting here supposed to be an opportunity to rehabilitate ourselvers and reintergrate into the internet community when we are taught the error of our ways?

Bless me father, for I have sinned and it has been sixty two years and fourteen days since my last confession.


My goal in life is to be happy, and part of being happy is unloading frustration, and this blog is a great way to unload all your bitter feelings. People here are sympathetic to your plight, offer constructive critisism, and teach things that you might not yet know.

It's like therapy where you can find counsel among like minded individuals, come to understand why you feel as you do, and avoid all the unnecessary bloodshed that often results when repressed anger breaks out into violent deeds.

And it's a great place to crack wise, entertain yourself with your wit, and perhaps make new friends. I love it here.

And besides, I have no where else to go. You people are great, and smart, and I've learned a lot here, including how to cope.

Thank all of you, really. Thank you.

Kissy, Kissy to the ladies, and firm manly handshakes to the men.

I disagree. I think the cheaply-made 2D, repetitive motions and repetitive backdrops cartoons made it clear how much more important it was to have characters that people cared about, and actual storytelling, than mere eye-candy.

Of course, Hanna-Barbera frequently lacked those, too -- which is why the Bullwinkle show is more beloved.

Wha - you think the Democrats aren't totally aware of the financial problems among others with Trump's campaign?

And that if we somehow never ever speak of them here then somehow it's not really real and the Democrats can't take full advantage of it in the campaign? That's magical thinking.

Plus the truth matters. And being able to talk about true things matters. Even if they're 'unhelpful' to a particular campaign. Even if someone might have an agenda behind bringing them up.

Are you going to tell me that no one here complained or criticized Romney after he got the nomination in 2012? Because if so, I'm going to ask to see a recent MRI.

And let's be honest: absolutely nothing said here is any news to the opposition or will have any more effect on the election than passing a well-formed satisfying stool. It's just for our own amusement. At best it might be a venue for rehearsing arguments to be made in the real world but the net effect of the comments is exactly this: fuck all +/- 0%.

And that's also the effect on Trump's campaign of suppressing or not suppressing certain kinds of talk in the comments here.

So if you have counter-arguments, make them. But what we don't need are thread cops out on patrol against Bad Think, Unhelpful Information, and Ulterior Motives.

407 Well, the saga continued with me sainted mother. None of the other stuff had worked, so I started the heavy laxative artillery, the colonoscopy clean-out shit with her. I got one glass down her, and she promptly threw it up.

Now, that is a sign of a serious obstruction or seriously plugged up, so back to the ER we went, for the 3rd time in 24 hours. With those symptoms, they got serious. The doc had to a little manual unclogging, and I heard him remark to his nurse, "Now, that's a lot of hard poop."

He then ordered a CT scan of her bowels and started running IV fluids in her. The CT didn't show an obstruction, but she was pretty full of it. So he was ruminating on just what to do while I was in the room with her, sort of falling asleep (it was coming up on 24 hours since I'd slept, hell maybe more).

She said, "[Publius], I think I'm doing something.", awakening from her slumber. Well, yes, she was doing something all right. Help! All hands on deck. That poor bed. Well, two nurses got in there and I got out of the way. A desperate call came out for a beside commode and some male nurse dude to get his butt in there.

He came flying with the bedside thingy. I think he was ex-military, he had that bearing and haircut. He was sort of well, goofy about the whole thing, declaring that that was his speciality. I thought my Lord... :-)

But, if you're going to have to do that unpleasant task, I guess it helps to have a positive attitude and all that. To him, my mother was grannie, if not great-grannie, and he called her "Meemaw". He said, "You had to go didn't you, Meemaw!" and goofy shit like that.

Well, the Duke of Defecation there got her fixed up and from the sheer amount, there was no doubt she had cleared herself out.

Now, we've got to monitor her fluid intake like a hawk and also, well, exactly what she does when she goes to the little girls' room. And walk her more. That helps keep the bowels in gear.

If it happens again, I think I'm going to be last seen running through the woods behind the house screaming like a lunatic.

The FAL is the more indestructible instrument, but a crude stone axe in the modern lexicon of arms.

The AR platform, especially in a quality AR-10 variation, dwarfs it in terms of adaptability, accuracy and shootability.

466 They neglect to do their due diligence as many states have equivalent amendments or outright statements of the right of it's citizens to bear arms.

PA is one of them. For the state to deny us our right to self defense they would have to modify the constitution and that's not going to happen no matter the wet dreamers in Pittsburgh, Philly and Harrisburg.

Before the 2nd gun thread got hijacked by moo moo acting all chemjeff yesterday, there was some interesting talk about AR's. And some mention of FN FAL's. So the question is which better as a battle rifle (and I realize there are .308 AR platforms). FAL in .308 or AR in .223.


Posted by: prophet of the Elysian Fields

This will be a major opinion fest, but as far as flexibility goes, AR hands down. By flexibility I mean the ability to configure it to what you will be using it for.
Also from what I have seen, the AR tends to be more accurate.

Well, the cylinder bores have zero ridge at the top. And the pistons are marked "+.030". So it was a fresh rebuild with relatively few miles on it. Don't know what the bottom end is like; I noticed a hole in the front of the oil pan; maybe they ran it out of oil, and fried the bearings?

488 I'm gonna share a cool bit of NBA history with you guys...

When the NBA was first established, one of the charter teams was... the Denver Nuggets. They started as an amateur team, and won a couple of national championships, so the NBA figured they'd be a solid franchise, and invited them into the league.

The NBA was wrong. The Nuggets didn't do so hot playing at the major-league professional level, and the franchise folded after two years.

Years later, a bunch of rich dudes who wanted to own NBA teams, but couldn't convince the NBA to expand to their towns, established the ABA. This new league existed for the sole purpose of convincing the NBA to merge with it.

They had a Kansas City franchise planned, but couldn't find a suitable arena there, so that team moved to Denver, and called itself the Denver Larks (after the state bird of Colorado). The owner had bad credit, and struggled to make ends meet, so the ABA told him, "Hey. Put up a $100,000 bond, or we'll seize the team from you." He decided to sell the team instead, and they were by a local trucking magnate. The Larks' new owner changed their name to the Denver Rockets, after his nickname for the express trucks his company ran.

A few years later, that long-awaited merger with the NBA looked like it might potentially be happening, so the Rockets decided they needed a new name (because the NBA already had a team called The Rockets, based in, fittingly, Houston). Their owner decided to hold a public contest to rename the team, and Nuggets won big as a tribute to that original NBA team.

When the NBA finally bought out the ABA, the Nuggets were one of just four teams the NBA decided to keep (the others were the New Jersey Nets, the San Antonio Spurs, and the Indiana Pacers).

This buyout occurred just in time for those ABA team owners, too, because they had teams folding left and right. In fact, of the ABA's 20 teams, just seven were still mostly functioning right then. The NBA bought the Kentucky Colonels for $3.3 million just to fold them.

The owner of the Spirits of St. Louis had the really smart idea to say, "Hey, I don't need any money up front; just give me a cut of the TV revenues for those four teams you're keeping from the ABA, forever. 1/7 seems fair, since there are currently seven ABA teams." The NBA agreed. Forty years later, the NBA realized it had paid a quarter of a billion dollars for this now-worthless former franchise, and worked out a deal with this ghost-team's owners to buy out that TV revenue contract for a one-time payment of another half a billion dollars.

I'm sure the owner of the Colonels felt dumb after that, but he still did much better than the owner of the Virginia Squires, who actually folded just a few days before the merger was worked out, and ended getting nothing from the deal.

Tonight's question: carbine, mid-length, or long barrel?


As with crafting remarks for an audience, first questions are what is your goal (not trying to poach on eman's ground here), and who is your audience?


Equivalent answer here is general purpose, plinking, fun action shoots. So - nothing too demanding or exotic.


I'm guessing carbine or mid-length, before educumucating myself on the matter. Horde-sourced ruminations and advice welcome.

519 I don't think we'll have any Beslans, but I also don't think, if we did, that it would necessarily move the needle in a more sensible direction.


Just too many non-comparable features.


Russians and Chechens have been going at it for a looooong time. And they're neighbors, Russians have been up in their grill (just in terms of modern history) for centuries. The Russian "wild west" experience (emphasis on the exaggerated conflict/violence aspect of that term, vs. hardship and exploration) was in the northern Caucasus. Lermontov, "Hero of our Time" - it's a cultural touchstone for Russians.


And Beslan came after a particularly grotesque and fresh double dose of Russia-pacifies-Chechnya, lasting for years. Beslan was hardly some sort of triggering watershed, like Pearl Harbor. Just another in an endless series of atrocities unimaginable to (even educated) modern Americans.


And then there's the state of "Americans". Still the most self-reliant and independent large population on the planet, but a shadow of even its recent self in those respects, and declining by the minute.

521 So this happened today....

A young deer has become quite territorial with the grazing in 're front yard. She charged at both fat mini Aussie Shepard and my Lab/Aussie Cattle dog mix while they were playing fetch. I don't hunt anymore and purposely allow the grass to grow tall so over a dozen will graze and bed down at night.
In my 35+ years I've never seen a deer act so territorial.
I think I saw a baby moving in her stomach.
Does any of the Horde know if pregnant deer become territorial when it finds a safe spot to give birth?




Also at Sun down I thought I saw her again bedded down so I lobbed the ball towards the direction of the omitted and it took off when my cattle lab dog barked. I saw no eyes or white tail from the speeding omitted. After 10 years living out here in the woods of omitted omitted in BullDawg country. It felt like a X file moment. The danm thing was fast and took three strides to travel 15 plus yards on all fours. Any idea what it could be?


I've had 5 surgeries the past few years from wear and tear from my ball playing days. I appreciate everything everybody puts into this fantastic site I've been reading since 2006. I bought a PS3 God of War edition from a friend and his used games (God of War series, Uncharted series, Bat man Arkham series, and Red Dead redemption with all the guides.)
Point is my body and brain are have reached a breaking point for the first time in my life. I'm fully shrugging.
Basically I've gone Full Peter Gibbons.

Maybe after a few months of sloth plus nothing but PS3, I'll snap out of it, but right now I'm pretty danm sick of all the taints and chodes in this country. I can't even read a fucking book for the first time in my life, and for the first time in my life I dont see any upside to dating or cute lady friends with benefits.
All I see are Hungry eyes except they literally are starving for dinner or rent.


Fuck I'm so jaded and I only want to sit on the sidelines for once in my life while shrugging. I want my innocence back. Y'all fight the good fight.


I may lurk and I may not. I pray Ace gets well. I pray you morons and etts stay silly and happy. I pray for never ending side of boob and man buns for the commenters and lurkers.

If Cankles MacCackleCunt gets elected we need to find each other in Alaska or Northern Montana or North Dakota.... And not the local or regional Fun Camp.

If you've got two lowers, build either a carbine or a mid length, but then build the other as a long rifle with everything oriented towards the goal of extreme accuracy in a portable package.

The carbine/mid length should be built for reasonable accuracy, adaptability, and acceptable accuracy.

The long rifle should be built with premium upper, BCG, a superb trigger and a minimum of rail mounted crap affixed thereon.

Free floated handguard, and spend MORE on the optics than on the rifle itself.

Don't build two same damn guns on two different lowers. Opportunity costs: = lost.

I'd build a 16" .223 Wylde upper for a nice nickle boron timminy lower and then a 6.5 grendel 22.5" upper with 3 mags to go with it.

The performance difference between .223 and 6.5 as a thumper shines but save it for special occasions as barrel wear is in the 2000 round neighborhood as opposed to .308s 5000 or so wear and tear.

Wife liked the Wylde barrel a lot.

So this happened today....



A young deer has become quite territorial with the grazing in 're
front yard. She charged at both fat mini Aussie Shepard and my
Lab/Aussie Cattle dog mix while they were playing fetch. I don't hunt
anymore and purposely allow the grass to grow tall so over a dozen will
graze and bed down at night.

In my 35+ years I've never seen a deer act so territorial.

I think I saw a baby moving in her stomach.

Does any of the Horde know if pregnant deer become territorial when it finds a safe spot to give birth?









Also at Sun down I thought I saw her again bedded down so I lobbed
the ball towards the direction of the omitted and it took off when my
cattle lab dog barked. I saw no eyes or white tail from the speeding
omitted. After 10 years living out here in the woods of omitted omitted
in BullDawg country. It felt like a X file moment. The danm thing was
fast and took three strides to travel 15 plus yards on all fours. Any
idea what it could be?





I've had 5 surgeries the past few years from wear and tear from my
ball playing days. I appreciate everything everybody puts into this
fantastic site I've been reading since 2006. I bought a PS3 God of War
edition from a friend and his used games (God of War series, Uncharted
series, Bat man Arkham series, and Red Dead redemption with all the
guides.)

Point is my body and brain are have reached a breaking point for the first time in my life. I'm fully shrugging.

Basically I've gone Full Peter Gibbons.



Maybe after a few months of sloth plus nothing but PS3, I'll snap
out of it, but right now I'm pretty danm sick of all the taints and
chodes in this country. I can't even read a fucking book for the first
time in my life, and for the first time in my life I dont see any upside
to dating or cute lady friends with benefits.

All I see are Hungry eyes except they literally are starving for dinner or rent.





Fuck I'm so jaded and I only want to sit on the sidelines for once
in my life while shrugging. I want my innocence back. Y'all fight the
good fight.





I may lurk and I may not. I pray Ace gets well. I pray you morons
and etts stay silly and happy. I pray for never ending side of boob and
man buns for the commenters and lurkers.



If Cankles MacCackleCunt gets elected we need to find each other in

536 The Spirits had a young center who went on to be an NBA star, Moses Malone.

The Nuggets had the dominant player of the ABA, a guy who could've been an NBA superstar but decided he could make a better name for himself by being the big fish in a little pond. His name was David Thompson. He'd score like 50-60 points on a good night, and managed to score 80 in at least one game.

After the NBA merger, though, his drug addiction issues kept him from making it in the NBA. Still, though, he was the idol of one Michael Jordan.

It's a tradition in basketball for a player being inaugurated into the Hall of Fame to honor his biggest hero by having that dude open the door for him, and usher him into the Hall. Jordan honored Thompson by having him open that door for him.

543 I think what finally killed the car was the toilet paper oil filter. Didn't hold together quite as well as a Fram would have.

She sold it for junk within a year after he died.

Posted by: Blanco Basura at June 21, 2016 01:14 AM (T/cxb)


Fram would have been the OEM filter. The toilet-paper oil filters were called "Frantz Oil Cleaners". They did work OK with the right kind of toilet paper in them. But, and this is a shocka!, toilet paper companies really weren't in the business of making filter media. They were, and remain, in the business of keeping your bum comfy. And have a vested interest in their product not clogging up sewers and septic tanks. So there is a tendency for toilet paper to get soggy and begin to disintegrate when it gets wet with water. They want it to do that! In fact, it's a design requirement for marine and RV bumwad.


Motor oil gets water in it from combustion by-products. You can see where this is going. Frantz oil cleaner was a semi-good idea back in the day. If you used the right grade of toilet paper, and changed it frequently, it got the filtering job done. But you had to be a hands-on, compulsive tinkerer type to to really reap any benefit from the thing.

547 Jim, good advice. Actually I am an iron-sights guy only at the moment, just by preference, but building a long-range-optimized rifle would be edumucational and the optics part would be an element of that.


I don't intend to hang anything at all on the first one, at this point. Not for "home defense".


223 for the first one. Again - not an "AR guy", but figure I should have one (or, um, two), and so at least one will be very basic and standard (though I like the MonsterMan grip idea, vs. pistol grip - yet as we speak CA's absurd ruling non-elite is deciding which features or combos thereof are verboten, or will be).


Funny, I need only the dies to complete my reloading set-up for 223, though I own nothing in that caliber. Even have some components. Decent chance that shooting will become financially impossible for many in CA if a lunatic initiative passes and survives (suppresses contemptuous snort) "judicial" review. Reloading will be even more advantageous.

If you are having the rifle b/c "survival" and scarce ammo I emphatically beg you to make it a .223 Wylde.

US Military and Law Enforcement both use 5.56 ammo and as such added to the massive stockpiles bought up by the civilian population it stands to be after .22LR the most plentiful ammo in storage.

The nice thing about the Wylde is it eats .223 55 grains or .62 gr 5.56 with equal aplomb as the best "tweener barrel option."

I slogged my way through The Fourth Turning, and it was good read, albeit a slow one.

For those who haven't read it, their jist was that from around 2006-2026 (roughly) we are in what's called the Crisis period, where the Unraveling of the prior 20 years (1986-2006) comes to a head.

In this Crisis, things can go either way, and in a typical "turning" (i.e. 20 year period) the actual resolution event happens about 5 years before the end of the period.

So for the current Crisis turning we are in, that would be around the year 2020. This would be after 4 years of either the Donald or the Beast. Prior Crisis turnings have turned out positive, but they make no claim that the next one will.

Their book was published in 1997. One thing they "predicted" was that something bad would happen in the early 2000's and no later than about 2005 that would change everything.

I found the book quite interesting, but not very encouraging.

559 As to AR's..

AR-10's provide extended range/lethality vs 15's with comparable everything else, except weight. Weight of the rifle, weight of the ammo, etc, is definitely more with the 10's. Bigger weapon, just that simple.

If range of engagement is a factor in your choice, consider a compromise. An 18" 5.56 AR.

Knights Armament Company makes one called the LPR. I'm a KAC man, no secret here, but it's worth every dollar. If I had to pick ONE rifle, that's my personal choice. With the right glass, (scope) you can CQB one moment and hit man sized at 750 the next. Amazingly flexible platform.

Daniel Defense make an 18" V11 Pro model. Damn near as good as my KAC, yeah I have a Pro too (but I'm a gun guy) at a better price point. If money is a factor, DD is arguably the best bang for the buck out there.

HOWEVER..... NO matter what you use, the ONLY way to be good with your weapon is PRACTICE. Buying a $4800 SR-25 does NOT make you a shooter. Only hard work does.

Check out AR15.com and just browse around. Practically EVERY, and I do mean EVERY question regarding AR's has been discussed there.

I've jumped up and down on long cheater bars in my youth, 3/4" and 1" drive pull handles. I was crazy, it was a wonder I didn't split my head wide open. Air power, my son, big ass impact wrenches. But still, sometimes the cheater bars have to be used.

If you're new to optics, I'll save you months of headache in research.

Vortex Viper, PST, 4x16x50. Available in either 1st or 2nd focal plane variants. $200 premium for 1st focal plane.

Both come with battery powered illuminated reticle.

You'll not get more or better scope for your +/- $700 scope, period.

Do NOT SKIMP on the mounts. I spent $225 for my mount/base setup. Cheap mounts suck, always.

You can shop other good optics in that price range. And drive yourself nuts in the process.

Yeah the book was kinda creepy at times, especially recent history.

For example, a Crisis turning happens every 80 or so years. Let's go back in time a little with American history, starting by going back 80 years from 2016:

80 years prior is 1936: Great Depression followed by World War II.

80 years prior to 1936 is 1856: America torn apart by slavery and headed for Civil War 5 years later.

80 years prior to that is 1776. We all know what was going on then.

And so on.

576 Civil war? Nah. Sort of already under way, anyhow. But no pitched battles.


Some population exchanges (mostly movement to free states from blue dystopias). Some Irish democracy/passive disobedience (CO sheriffs ixnaying enforcement of stupid mag law, CT/NY semi-rifle owners not complying with outrageous unconstitutional laws).


But mostly just a grinding of the national ratchet in one direction, even in free states. Marriage redefined by 6 or 7 people, none of them fit to to decide what toppings to put on a pizza. Official stomping of dissent (cake bakers and florists) and unofficial/weaponized pop culture mob harm against others (tech execs, pizza restaurants).


Some signs it's already mostly over. Greatest wave election in history did little but confirm lack of leadership or opposition party at the national level. State resistance to federal lawlessness (Obamacare, immigration) mostly squelched by a judiciary that - on big questions - now generally plays Supreme Soviet to the WH's Politburo (whenever expansion of govt./compression of individual freedom is the question).

Yeah the book was kinda creepy at times, especially recent history.

For example, a Crisis turning happens every 80 or so years. Let's go back in time a little with American history, starting by going back 80 years from 2016:

80 years prior is 1936: Great Depression followed by World War II.

80 years prior to 1936 is 1856: America torn apart by slavery and headed for Civil War 5 years later.

80 years prior to that is 1776. We all know what was going on then.

And so on.

Like I said it was a good read, albeit slow (at least for yours truly).

What's cool is the authors don't just cover American history. They cover Anglo-American history and go all the way back to the late 1400's I think to state their case for these series of historical turnings, which always happen in the same order.

Civil war? Nah. Sort of already under way, anyhow. But no pitched battles.





Some population exchanges (mostly movement to free states from blue
dystopias). Some Irish democracy/passive disobedience (CO sheriffs
ixnaying enforcement of stupid mag law, CT/NY semi-rifle owners not
complying with outrageous unconstitutional laws).





But mostly just a grinding of the national ratchet in one direction,
even in free states. Marriage redefined by 6 or 7 people, none of them
fit to to decide what toppings to put on a pizza. Official stomping of
dissent (cake bakers and florists) and unofficial/weaponized pop
culture mob harm against others (tech execs, pizza restaurants).





Some signs it's already mostly over. Greatest wave election in
history did little but confirm lack of leadership or opposition party at
the national level. State resistance to federal lawlessness
(Obamacare, immigration) mostly squelched by a judiciary that - on big
questions - now generally plays Supreme Soviet to the WH's Politburo
(whenever expansion of govt./compression of individual freedom is the
question).

607 Well off to continue reading about the Pacific sub war. Up to late '43/early '44. Finally, the magnetic exploder is (mostly) scrapped, and the flawed contact one is fixed. New fleet boats are arriving and thus decent numbers can be maintained on patrol at all times.


But as the book suggests, if a few changes had been made, even by then - focus on the Luzon Strait, focus on tankers, adopt wolf-pack tactics - the Pacific war might have ended by the time Goebbels was passing out poison to his children.


It was always just a matter of time (and blood) till Japan was crushed, but I hadn't realized that the very poor submarine effort the first 18 months after Pearl Harbor probably materially lengthened the festivities, holding all else equal.

Do you remember him playing? I'm curious, because I was just thinking - as a kid in the '70's - I think if you had a draft of every college player in the '70's, it would be 1) Walton, 2) Thompson, 3) Magic/Bird. Thompson was that good.

I see that ESPN is going to do a 30-for-30 on Doc Gooden and Darryl Strawberry. I have no idea what people too young to remember Gooden think - but as a 19 yo in 1984 he was great - I mean, really great - and as a 20 YO in 1985 - he was a God. I mean, seriously, if you told a baseball fan in 1985 that he would end up the greatest pitcher who ever lived, most would agree, that's probably going to happen. Didn't work out - but, Doc Gooden, as a 20 yo in 1985 - that was immortal.

to many Baseball games. I do remember watching Sutcliffe hit the home
run in San Diego though.



Like many things in life, joy was soon turned into something else.

Sigh ... the knowledge. I'm enjoying this year as much as any in my life, baseball-wise. Yet knowing an errant grounder could go between the legs in October...

657 So in the last 10 days we had a islamict terrorist who "putted from the rough" murder 50 people and a Brit who attempted to assassinate a US presidential candidate-- though he knew nothing about firearms and tried to take one off a SS agent. Both were apparently Clinton supporters.


Immigration enforcement and mass deportations are in order.

________

Overlooking the obvious, of course.

Society faces the constant threat of an international terrorist gun network. Some of these guns blend in by posing as security weapons or sporting firearms, and when the time comes, these guns use the Internet to manipulate themselves into the hands of peaceful people so that they can shoot crowds of people.

Never trust any gun! Guns oftentimes work independently, killing people without taking direction from the larger gun organization. This is why we (that is, the government) needs to begin gun profiling and selective confiscation.

The worst guns are automatic assault weapons. These are easy to identify because they have barrels. The government should start with these.

Morning radio had a clip of the idiot senator from Florida (don't know the name and don't care) whining, "what am I going to tell the families of the Orlando dead?" A Senator Poppins would have replied that he could tell them his feckless, pantywaist, prancercizing PMS-ing clown of a president just let in 500 more unvetted Muslim scum since Orlando, so those families had probably better call the undertaker and make a reservation for more coffins, courtesy of the Democrat party.

Good article but the author is missing the boat on food (and other commodity) prices going through the roof. The reason for that is not China, it is the fact that the government and especially since Obama has been monatizing the debt (relentlessly printing money to pay for runaway deficit spending). The money is becoming virtually worthless.


And this hits the common man again, and especially people who are on fixed income.

Holy Crud.
It seems as though pedestrians in most places I go, think they can wander into the path of a car and the car has to stop. Whether or not you can stop. or even stop safely. I remember getting how to cross a street safely drilled into our heads in grade school.

753 "(What's the rule in other states? Just curious.)

In Maryland, if one actually reads the law as written, there is no requirement for a vehicle to stop for a pedestrian who is standing on the sidewalk side of a crosswalk curb.
Nor is a pedestrian to step out into traffic at a crosswalk in such a manner as to cause a vehicle operator to have to stop suddenly to not hit the pedestrian.

In other words, it is up to the pedestrian to gauge an opening in traffic which allows them room to step into the crosswalk safely without causing cars to come to a screeching halt to no hit them.

A blind person at the sidewalk side of a crosswalk curb on the other hand is to be able to display the white cane with the red tip, and traffic stop to allow the blind pedestrian to cross safely.

While I love my Mother in Law, I often refer to her as She Who Yells at Cars.

It really set her back when one day, as she was standing on the sidewalk at a crosswalk yelling at cars to stop, I explained to her how the law was actually written.

Then I handed her a printed copy of the applicable pedestrian law, straight out of the law book.

Had to do the same with our local Precinct Commander during a discussion of pedestrian crossing law.

Those rules make SENSE. But it appears that too much of current traffic law (at least, here in Virginia) places the burden of watching/stopping solely on the driver. Everyone else-walkers, bicyclists (I hear you Team RawDog) etc are completely immune from any responsibility whatsoever concerning walking or riding in traffic.


I have to give serious kudos to a Washington DC metro policewoman-we were waiting at a crosswalk to cross the street, as we did not have the light. A man crossed, and a car screeched to a halt to avoid hitting him. He yelled at the car and a nearby policewoman, asking her to give the driver a ticket. She replied, "It's on you dude. You cross against the light, you take your own life in your hands. No way I'm giving a ticket to a driver in that situation." The rest of us, waiting for the light to change, clapped for her.

So it is in New York. In fact, the NYS Drivers Manual* said that's the primary responsibility of any driver.

* - As an aside, I ponder this book quite a bit. It's a wonderful little book, Constitution-like in its brevity. All the rules are in there, and if everyone follows these clear and simple rules, traffic flows swimmingly well. Additional rules (such as the prohibition against running over blind people) are superfluous.

Also: Such higher civil concepts like equality are presumed. A stop sign means stop for the Lexus driver and the Chevette driver alike. The NYS Drivers Manual is all about the rule of law, and the entirety of the law fits in your glove compartment.
