11 From the dead thread:

Freedom Munitions is running a one-day free shipping sale if you spend over $99 today. They also don't add any hidden charges to "free" shipping.

They sell new 230gr .45acp for 28.9 cents per round, and that stuff normally costs a bunch to ship.

So, it's a good deal if you don't roll your own.

I believe that I heard Meggers on the radio about a month ago. Somebody was sucking up to her about how smart her Dad. She spoke of getting another tattoo because "that's what she does whenever she moves to a new residence", or some such nonsense.

The radio set itself to a new station immediately after that profundity.

46 The problem with PA is they tax your gross income, including pre-tax retirement contributions (they leave your medical contributions alone, however). So, they still hit you on the front-end, even if they don't nail you on the back.

You've already paid PA, so may as well stay here, SE PA.

58 I have no idea if it's Italian but that family were stereotypical working class Italian Americans. They loved to eat and they always had great food cooking in the kitchen. The mom was such a wonderful cook. I used to play with their twin boys and when I played at their house. She always gave me the most awesome cookies and the best lemonade. I still make lemonade her way to this day. They always had a pitcher of red Koolaid in the fridge at all times too.

My stupid mom made Countryime fake lemonade, the nasty powder kind that came in the can.

It may very well be in Chicago. Despite their draconian gun laws the average hood can walk down to the nearest stoplight and whisper to the druggie vendor there that he needs a heater (or whatever the euphemism is now) and someone will meet him there for a quick sale later.


But new draconian gun laws will not stop that. They just want to continue to disarm honest citizens in direct violation of the constitution.

195 "IT is not astonishing that men do so little for God and that the little which they do costs them so much. They do not know Him; scarcely do they believe that He exists; and the impression they have is rather a blind deference for general opinion than a lively and distinct conviction of the Divinity. They suppose it is so, because they do not dare to examine, and because they are indifferent in the matter, their souls being distracted by the inclination of their affections and passions for other objects; but their only idea of Him is of something wonderful, far off and unconnected with us. They think of Him as a stern and powerful Being, ever making requisitions upon us, thwarting our inclinations, threatening us with great evils, and against whose terrible judgment it behooves every one to be on his guard. Such is the inward thought of those who think seriously about religion, and their number even is small enough. "He is one who fears God," say they; and in truth such an one fears only, but does not love; as the child is in awe of the master who punishes him, or as the servant is in dread of the blows of one whom he serves from fear, and of whose interests is he utterly regardless. Would he like to be treated by a son or a servant as he treats God? It is because God is not known; if He were known, He would be loved. God is love, says the apostle John (1 John iv. 8, 16); he who loves Him not, does not know Him, for how could we know love without loving it? It is plain, then, that all those who have hitherto only feared God, have not known Him.

Words to remember.

204 Today on Amateur Philosopher's Hour - Why Europe and Why Muslims

Europe represents the largest secular civilization in history.

This idea is borrowed from a recent book of faith by Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, the former Chief Rabbi of the UK.

The Holocaust was carried out at a time when the achievements of mankind were at its peak. Germany was the world leader in technical and medical achievement. France who had rounded up and shipped Jews off to their deaths without even having to be asked by Hitler to do so, had only decades earlier given the world the declaration of the equality of all human beings since birth. Austria, where from Vienna the mayor had been the inspiration for Hitler's anti-Semitism, and were 97% of the people voted to accept Hitler's annexation of Austria, was the cultural capital of the world. Of all the lessons that people should have learned from the Holocaust is that putting our faith in mankind is not merely misguided, it's insane.

Yet since WWII, people in the western world, but especially in Europe, have become more secular than ever.

Whether G-d exists or not, I don't think that anyone would argue that Voltaire was right when he said, "If G-d didn't exist, it would be necessary to create Him." The idea of god is hardwired into our beings.

Rabbi Sacks argues that the 21st century will be one of the most religious centuries ever. If this is true, how will this manifest itself?

Nature abhors a vacuum.

These are no longer Rabbi Sacks ideas:

Muslims are flooding Europe because the environment is ripe for them to fill the vacuum. Are the conflicts in the ME contributing? Of course. But not as much as is being portrayed, I think. Those thousands of Muslim young men pouring into Europe are not typical refugees. Very few women and children are accompanying them.

And why Muslims? What makes Islam a religion that Europeans are willing to go out of their way to essentially send engraved invitations for them to come and invade their countries.

This is the amateur philosophy:

Judaism and Christianity diverge from the other so-called Abrahamic religion - Islam - because, I think, the aspiration of followers of those religions are "inspired" to become godlike in their characters, and in those religions, that quest, if you will, is impossible since G-d represents perfection.

Secular man, I think, rejects impossible aspirations. Not that concept of there existing a state of perfection doesn't exist, it's just that it is ridiculous to waste one's time trying to achieve it.

The god of Islam is different though. The god of Islam, regardless of protestations to the contrary, is not a merciful, perfect god. The god of Islam is a cruel, petulant, unmerciful, arbitrary god.

Islam, like other pagan religions, works on a system of weights and measures. Followers of Islam must try to keep the balance of their "good works" balanced in their favor over the weight of their "bad works". The problem is that even if a Muslim were to live a perfect life in the eyes of Islam, Allah could still arbitrarily send that adherent to hell on a whim. In Islam, the only way to guarantee ones admittance to paradise, is to die in Jihad. (I'm not going to go into the BS interpretations of what that means.)

So for secularists, Islam is not that terrible of a religion. The god of Islam does not represent an impossible aspiration to achieve a level of godliness. In fact, being on a level with the god of Islam it isn't necessary to aspire to raise oneself at all since the god of Islam represents some of basest of human foibles.

For this reason, I think, even if by-in-large, Europeans aren't followers of Islam, the god of Islam is not such a bad rodent to have infesting their neighborhood.

Sure it makes sense. It means "bottom" - the bottom of a sack or bag is curved like the letter C. That's what a dead-end street in a nice subdivision is designed to look like. And even if you're considering just a plain old straight dead end, the bottom of the bag is the point at which you can't go any further - it's the end.

and Mr. Bean


I'ma gonna disagree with you both.

The people who've been propped up by the left are doing their best to destroy Western Civ, it's not the people doing it. Notice how they're all of the same mind doing the same thing almost all at the same time, namely displacing the natives of their country for immigrants. This is because they sense the natives becoming restless for freedom from the insane, power-mad control of leftards.

The muz have been ordered to do what they're doing. They have no free will and are easily brainwashed, as listening to any recent convert will reveal. Hell, they have to be told it's OK to use toilet paper. Such outer-directed "people" are essentially robots and the imams know it. I'm willing to bet there's some fatwa telling them to invade.

This is setting up Armageddon. It's a type of war unlike any other, as the assaults by the enemy will come in every form imaginable, physically, mentally and spiritually. Everything Western Civ holds dear will be challenged in every way.

The time for choosing what it is that we all individually believe in is upon us. Our very lives depend on it.

Notice in the article they talk about how there is no danger on this pass. When NASA puts radar on an asteroid it is not to "study the physical properties of this object" - it is because they are worried about it as a possible impactor. Time on the big radio telescopes is allotted far in advance and they don't run radar from them without very good reason.

272 The little innocent lamb who was disrupting the class will get a huge payout. Question is, who will do the paying? The cop was not working under the umbrella of the PD, he was acting as a school officer. So unless there is some kind of weird contract going on there the school deep pockets will be held accountable. But in both cases ultimately the tax payers will be held accountable.


All because a SJW snowflake decided to be a brat and refused orders to vacate the class and then get out of her chair. And she got mussed up a little. Who ever they are looking at on that needs to immediately have their own doctor get her neck and arm x-rayed under a court order because this is obvious fraud.


If the cop who is about to become unemployed owns anything of value he need to start getting rid of it immediately. The others will likely rollover and he will be fed to the lions.

273 Okay, but why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways?
Posted by: Turd Ferguson


Because of two different but related meanings of the word.

park (v.)
1812, "to arrange military vehicles in a park," from park (n.) in a limited sense of "enclosure for military vehicles" (attested from 1680s). General non-military meaning "to put (a vehicle) in a certain place" is first recorded 1844. Related: Parked; parking. Park-and-ride is from 1966.

park (n.)
mid-13c., "enclosed preserve for beasts of the chase," from Old French parc "enclosed wood or heath land used as a game preserve" (12c.), probably ultimately from West Germanic *parruk "enclosed tract of land" (cognates: Old English pearruc, root of paddock (n.2), Old High German pfarrih "fencing about, enclosure," German pferch "fold for sheep," Dutch park).

And, yes, I have heard the joke before.

318 On that unruly student thingy, I predict that the Federal Government will have to get involved, and the Feds will then require that there be a (Highly Paid) Staff Psychiatrist or Psychologist for each school district to handle these types of problems. These Mental Health professionals can also train school administrators and teachers in the proper peaceful techniques for handling these types of conflict situations.

There is no need for law enforcement, and in the case of one problem student the School District Mental Health Professionals, working with County Services can visit the home of the unruly student and stage an intervention to help the family learn how to reduce tensions between family members.

It's only common sense that these 'cries for help' from students who are temporarily overwhelmed by complex events in their life be dealt with by caring experts in the field of Mental Health.

The Detroit News yesterday published a crabby letter from a reader who was complaining about having cars of kids "who obviously were underprivileged" show up in her neighborhood for trick or treat. She somehow wanted this stopped in some manner, I don't know if she wanted the driver arrested, kids sent to juvie or what, but she wanted to rant about it.

I can certainly understand any parent who has to live in Detroit city not wanting to send their third graders out to walk the streets past vacant houses to get to the one still with electricity for trick or treat. I can understand wanting to take them somewhere safe, where typical working people live who just give out candy, not drugs or razor blades.

I also think it is beneficial for kids to see that they don't have to live the rest of their lives in the hood. The problem is overcoming the influences of the hood.

325 Yeah, since I got my Glock 30, it's been really tough justifying keeping the .40's fully stocked. I was keeping it around mostly for the 27 with 180gr .40, which behaves much like a +p 230gr .45, only a touch smaller.

Problem is, the 30 is maybe a quarter inch taller and eighth of an inch wider, so it's no harder to conceal when you use a flush baseplate. With the same capacity.

Maybe if the prices on .40 start coming back down I'll stock up, but with the mad rush of everyone to 9mm, I just don't see that happening.

From yesterday but needs correction. Is not actually Columbia is a suburb.

A Columbia, SC sheriff's deputy will soon be fired, and Columbia
taxpayers will be hit for a big jackpot justice civil suit because the
deputy was a little rough trying to arrest a black teenager who was
ordered out of class and refused to go. He has committed the ultimate
unpardonable sin.

362 I remember the days when the bus driver used to be able to come to the back of the school bus, where the thirteen year old barbarian boys were trying to light up a cigarette, etc. and he could drag their ass off the bus by hauling them out by the collar of their jacket and take them straight to the principal's office. Or he would jump into the middle of a fight and pull boys(it was never girls back then) apart, set them in opposite ends of the bus, drop them off, and their parents would get a call that night from the principal. End result, loss of bus riding privileges for a while.

There were no school "safety" officers, etc. There was little in the way of need of any physical altercations, because kids respected authority. They knew there would be consequences.

Our schools have become what they are now, because we have allowed a bunch of idiot Dr. Spock raised liberals to take over the educational system and turn them into student run indoctrination centers.

Kids fear nothing today, because nothing has consequences for them, other than getting paid off for creating these kinds of situations.

We don't know much about it except for a few seconds on video, so no real point in speculating either way.

However, yes, if we just take the bare situation of a kid texting in class and not doing the work, obviously there isn't a need for the officer to be asked to intervene.

The teacher should have phoned admin and asked to move her kids to another classroom. Leave the little shit inside, and have the admin detain her once she got bored and left the classroom.

371 Bean,
>>>Islam, like other pagan religions, works on a system of weights and measures. Followers of Islam must try to keep the balance of their "good works" balanced in their favor over the weight of their "bad works".

The proper theological term is "Pelagianism". This isn't just limited to Judaism/Christianity vs. other religions. Christians have been divided over this as well. Protestants (whether rightly or wrongly) are especially concerned that Catholics and Jews veer towards "works righteousness" which Paul denounces in Galatians and Romans.

The real problems with Islam are as you note:
>>>The problem is that even if a Muslim were to live a perfect life in the eyes of Islam, Allah could still arbitrarily send that adherent to hell on a whim. In Islam, the only way to guarantee ones admittance to paradise, is to die in Jihad. (I'm not going to go into the BS interpretations of what that means.)

So for secularists, Islam is not that terrible of a religion. The god of Islam does not represent an impossible aspiration to achieve a level of godliness. In fact, being on a level with the god of Islam it isn't necessary to aspire to raise oneself at all since the god of Islam represents some of basest of human foibles. .

Which is why I don't understand:
>>>For this reason, I think, even if by-in-large, Europeans aren't followers of Islam, the god of Islam is not such a bad rodent to have infesting their neighborhood.


I think it is better to have a secularism that is *haunted* by residual habits and memories of Christianity/Judaism, rather than a religion that elevates people's basest instincts to the level of virtues. As far as religions go, Islam is *worse* than nothing.

That little twerp was the culmination of a lifetime of failed parenting brought on by the fear of legal action for any type of discipline. The cop was just lucky enough to be there for the end game and let his emotions take over his logic and sense.

Argh. No. a) the problem isn't lack of shiny ipads, it is lousy teachers and a "gangsta" culture that undervalues things like chess clubs b) what if parents homeschool? They shouldn't be forced to pay into *any* school system, especially not a crappy fiat one c) redistributionism is wrong, and if it feeds into an unfixable, crap system like public school teacher's unions, that's doubly true.

I would have been grounded forever except for church youth group. And who in their right mind except a few punks and hippies fought the police on principle?!?

From CNN

The FBI and area U.S. Attorney's Office have opened a civil rights investigation to determine whether federal laws were violated during the student's arrest, a Justice Department spokesperson said. Sheriff Lott said the FBI would also be the lead agency in a criminal investigation.

"We do not want any issues with the community or those involved having questions concerning conflicts of interest in this investigation," he said.

The officer involved is white; the student is black.

"We're deeply concerned, particularly with the assault of the student," said Lonnie Randolph Jr., president of the South Carolina NAACP. "It was not the right way to respond."

Why should we compare this arrest to parenting?

Posted by: Draki


I stated that the little brat was the result of non-parenting. I never justified what the officer did. I also mentioned that my own parents would have done the same to me and did not shy away from physical discipline.

Another commenter seems to feel that the special snowflake was out picking daisies when she had the "shit beat out of her" by a militarized thug cop.

498 A 14 year old girl who was swimming in a school pool was forced to stand in subzero temperatures during a fire alarm. In only a swim suit. She wasn't allowed to stay in a building, a car or get any clothing.She suffered frostbite.

Scant media coverage and no one ordered a federal investigation.

Another girl was subjected to a strip search and invasive searching because someone else lied and said that she was handing out ibuprofin. Again, no federal involvement.

It's no a federal crime to protest within 1000 feet of an abortion clinic since the Bubba era, and physical violence has repeatedly been used.

The student is facing some kind of disruptive charge, along with another student who was backing her.

She is sixteen years old, yet the ACLU is calling her a "child".
Part of this stems from the continued infantiliization of the population. She is old enough to drive, etc. but the players who want to benefit from this are insisting on calling her a child to make it appear that she was a tiny baby being beaten by a resource officer.

Posted by: mustbequantum at October 28, 2015 09:50 AM (MIKMs)


Why do they need upgrading? Do they not work now? Are they currently running Win 7, or XP? If they are old enough to have originally shipped with XP, they probably don't have the necessary memory and processing power to really run Win 10 properly. If they are running Win 7, and working well, why bother? As far as I know, you cannot install Win 10 without taking on some of MS spyware; it's baked into the cake, so to speak.


If the laptops run XP, and continue to work, just continue to use them. You would be surprised to learn how many businesses continue to use XP. If the XP machines get corrupted, or otherwise unsatisfactory, load them with Linux. LinuxMint is an easy distro for a non-Linux nerd like me to install. And you can't beat the price!

My point, which Insomniac has refused to acknowledge due to an appointment with windmill-tilting, is that it used to be a concrete pillar of our society that children who were disciplined were not problems for the police.

Discipline is not a police officer's job. It is a parent's job.
Unfortunately, hypersensitivity over physical discipline has gone from 'spare the rod spoil the child' to every effective disciplinary technique being categorized as abuse.

This may have been the result of weak parents who want to "discuss" little Johnny's "problems" rather than do the work necessary to solve the problem before it erupts in public.

Columbia attorney Todd Rutherford told ABC's "Good Morning America" on Wednesday that Richland County Senior Deputy Ben Fields should have been fired as soon as Sheriff Leon Lott saw the video recorded by several students at Spring Valley High School in Columbia.

"She now has a cast on her arm, she has neck and back injuries. She has a Band-Aid on her forehead where she suffered rug burn on her forehead," Rutherford told the network.

Lott had said Tuesday that the girl was uninjured in the confrontation but "may have had a rug burn."

He calmly reached down, grabbed a copper pipe, and thrashed them both within an inch of their lives. Even in that state, they were angrily, resentfully screaming at him. I hope he was given a medal and deputized for that. That was awesome.

Dennis Hastert is going to spend 6 months in prison because he wanted to keep payments to another person private. His own money. He was being blackmailed.
Posted by: jwest



Three things:

One: His payments were private. He's guilty of knowingly structuring the amount of those payments to avoid Federal bank transaction reporting regulations, then lying under oath about it to investigators.

Two: There are no claims by anyone in this case that he was "blackmailed". He reached a personal settlement to compensate one of his victims.

Three: Uhhh -- I forget the third one.

585 The problem with discipline or lack thereof starts early. By the time they're in high school, it's probably too late.

Posted by: Lea at October 28


I think this was at the heart of Mortimer's point about the "absent father." Not so much the literal tossing, dragging, police-takedown, but that proper respect for authority and discipline were not adequately reinforced.

Did the cop use excessive force? Maybe, but as has been discussed here before, once the arrest goes noncompliant, odds are good people get hurt. It's ugly. Violence of action is a necessity when you have opted to engage, and it's difficult to meter the magnitude of the response exactly. That's a bit like complaining why the cop didn't shoot Michael Brown in the leg--once the shooting response is initiated, there's no fooling around with it. Same with noncompliant takedown arrests--the sooner the subject is subdued the less likely it is that people get seriously hurt or the incident escalates to the use of deadly force.

The heart of the problem, IMHO, is the poor decision-making process being exhibited by large numbers of folks in their interactions with law enforcement specifically and authority in general.

Within 4 or 5 seconds of the initiation of contact he's got her on the ground arresting her, repeating "put your hands behind your back". I can't see if she's still resisting at that point.

Here, they got cagey and divided the City of Wilmington between the suburban districts. Now the city doesn't have a regular high school. There's a charter school, one vo-tech school, and four Catholic schools. Everyone else gets bussed out and back in again.

I agree, particularly as parents are on the kid's side against the
teachers most of the time -- and to make matters worse, schools teach
kids to defy authority.

He has a YouTube channel, does radio, podcasts, blogging and other stuff. He's a black guy - which I only mention because it's relevant to the subject matter. He can be a little left-leaning, but when it comes to the rot within "black culture," the single motherhood, ratchet behavior and all that, he pulls absolutely no punches whatsoever.

663 When I was in high school, I met several people who were there because they were yanked out of public schools due to the forced bussing, or worse yet, because someone got the notion that giving them some structure and discipline now would be good prep for college. Most didn't do well, and most hated it, particularly the latter group.

In public schools now, the violence and disruptive behaviors are increasing, extending now to middle school and elementary school. Most teachers cope and pass it along.

And then suddenly, a full size person is screwing off in high school and is dealing with a cop instead of a teacher or assistant principal.

And of course, there's bitching about this. All of this is predictable.

It's no different than many other northeast cities. It's a shadow of its former shelf, in terms of business and population. There are a few gentrified areas, but that is limited by the overall job creation rate and cost of living. And the violence is spiking, with a race baiting clown show 24/7.

It's no different than many other northeast cities. It's a shadow of its former shelf, in terms of business and population. There are a few gentrified areas, but that is limited by the overall job creation rate and cost of living.

If you go out near Johns Hopkins, it's like a blasted, post-apocalyptic wasteland all around until you get to the campus. It's the strangest thing.

719 Is there any physical difference (ex. higher androgen levels) that would help account for the agressiveness of these girls?

Lots of people come from shitty backgrounds but don't end up violent per se. If that is not being looked into, I suspect it's because of PC brain damage taking precedence over what might actually be in the best interests of the child.

Check Numrich Gun Parts.

One thing with those Enfield No 4s, the bolt head is threaded and there are several different sizes of bolt heads that you can swap out to set the headspace. If I remember correctly, the 0 size bolt head is pretty rare anymore, as it's the normal correct size for proper headspace. The other sizes were intended for unit armorers to be able to easily swap in to refurb worn rifles without having to send it back to be re-arsenaled.

Chechen snipers in the ruins of Grozny made life a living hell for Russian soldiers with suppressed .22LR rifles. Almost impossible to locate where the shot's coming from, even at the short distances made necessary by the characteristics of the round.

Now little Johnny apples to UNC, he's in a minority HS so they get more admissions, and he's in the top of his class ranking.

A NEW high-powered shotgun on its way to Australia could help trigger the biggest overhaul of gun laws since the Port Arthur massacre.

The Turkish-made Adler A110, a seven-shot lever-action gun, is marketed as a 'game changer' for hunters because of its rapid-fire ability.

An online video showing seven shots fired in as many seconds has sparked concerns from gun control advocates and Victoria Police that it may be too easily accessible.

782 Quick question.



I went running yesterday. Near the end of my 70 minute run, teenagers, about 15, are playing on the sidewalk across the street. White, Canadian kids in a small town. The teen boy is grabbing onto the girl by the waist, lifting her up as she's 'protesting' and her blonde friend is pulling her to release her.



It's by a crowded corner. Pretty innocent. I just passed by on the other side of the street, did nothing, the light turned red, I had a minute to kill, it was still happening so I yelled "Hey" and they broke it up. The guy made a move towards them, I moved as if I was coming across the street, he moved off, I continued my run, incident over....




Was that wrong? If that was my future daughter, I wouldn't want her grabbed like that, even playfully. And it's Ontario, the kids might as well get used to the new rape laws now. If 6 year olds kids in school can't kiss, I'm pretty sure confinement is wrong too....

He is for the most part a standard issue libtard, but he does believe that Emma Sulkowicz types should not be allowed to deprive the accused of due process, and he acknowledges the dangers of militant Islam, like Harris and Hitchens.

Therefore he's been verbally reamed by his former liberal allies. Another case of the left devouring itself. Popcorn time.

I haven't been to AuTin in awhile but it was still nice though the politics suck and it's still freak and hipster magnet. Houston is deteriorating fast. The suburbs and the nice neighborhoods in the city are still nice, but the infrastructure is being neglected. Bad roads, flooded with illegals that are creating mini slums where they are concentrated. It's still got a very low cost of living, but it's probably the worst of the big cities. Plus the Texans still suck

I also note that for a long time, the national moonbat madness in the public schools seemed to be staying clear of TX. Then the Texas educrat left figured out that as long as they loudly boost the sacrosanct football program, and protect it, they'll be allowed to get away with corrupting the hell out of the actual academic curriculum.

So increasingly I note these classroom outrages happening in Texas, too.

Most recently in Katy, where pupils were forced to deny the existence of God as anything other than a myth as a formal part of classroom instruction.

Lohan was seen carrying around a Koran while doing community service. Her agent (or her parole officer, I forget which) said she was interested in all things Arabic right now.

The reason I know this is because when I saw Lohan and Koran in the same headline, my brain did some sort of circuit jumping trick as it tried to reconcile two completely dissimilar things within the same context. Weird feeling.
