**UPDATE: Last video was giving people fits so try this one:**

If you enjoyed that (or even if you didn't), you'll probably love this:

I am very critical of Trump and I know some of his alt-right followers are creepy anti-Semites and racists (check out any random Taki comments thread) but you can't blame Trump for that. Has Trump said anything anti-Semitic himself? Or anything actually racist, as compared to anti- letting criminals in?

Tying Trump to some genuinely racist supporters is doing the left's work for them.

They want to flaunt transgenderism use the Olympic rings, the Olympic committee has announced that trannies can compete in the women's divisions. --cue the comments about just like East Germany in the 70s and 80s.

120 Drudge

"Social Security moves to block the mentally ill from buying guns."


The headline is a little misleading. Follow the process.

You claim to be mentally ill, and sign up with Social Security for disability payments.

The Social Security Administration 'qualifies' you for disability payments, and then notifies NCIC that you are mentally ill.

You go fill out the background check required to buy a gun legally. The form is processed by the agency responsible for background check forms processing and comes back denied.

So you do what Obama suggests, buy from the street corner drug dealer/gun reseller from the inventory he has in the back of his van, no background check required.

Your only risk is the possibility that the street corner drug dealer/gun reseller might be an undercover agent or informant who sells you out to the feds to maintain his credibility while protecting his drug dealing homies.

148 From a self-professed Trump supporter on Boston-area drive-time morning talk radio...

We need someone who will get things done, to work with Democrats and Republicans. We are not an ideological country anymore. We will never be again the sort of country that Ted Cruz is looking for and that's why he got shellacked.

Literally, the next caller, also a self-professed Trump supporter...

Trump winning is a long-overdue thumb in the eye of the GOP establishment in Washington.

OK, it's just two knucklehead callers on drive-time talk radio. I know. I get that. But I've heard these obviously contradictory sentiments from Trump supporters since at least January. What's hilarious to me is the seeming total lack of awareness of this contradiction.

See, if what you want is for someone to make yuge, luxurious deals with Democrats then what were Johnny McMaverick and Flip Rmoney not acceptable to you? Because they were too GOPe? So it's OK to go along with making deals with Democrats as long as the hack making the deals is not coming from "The Republican Establishment, LLC"? Well the problem with that is you're not only not sticking a thumb in the eye of the GOPe, you're giving them a fabulous new face. The Chamber of Commerce, K-Street GOP Ops, Ryan, Mitch, and the rest of the deal makers are going to make out just fine, thank you very much, under a Trump Regime.

OK, maybe some deckchairs will get rearranged. But in the end all the Democrat/Republican cabal will have is a new Billy Mays to pitch their brand of managed big government. In a way I'm grateful for this - we will no longer have to worry about having the GOP lie to our faces every 2-4 years about they being the party of limited, Constitutional government. Not if The Witch wins, and not if The Donald wins.

You're also handing the GOPe the benefit of neutering the intellectual opposition to big government expansion. The Heritage Foundation will have no place at the table under a Clinton OR Trump administration - not if The Donald is going to be making fantastic, world-class deals with the Democrats, that is.

Just a couple of thoughts for people who are struggling to understand #NeverTrump, at least from folks like me.

I'm not interested in making deals with Democrats - otherwise I would have voted for McVain and Rmoney. I'm not interested in a more efficient and competently managed big government - otherwise I would have supported Katshit. So thank you, Trumpers, for once and for all ending the GOPe charade and for validating my decision to dump my R registration in May 2011.

Now I can just swim out past the breakers and watch the world die in relative peace.

Trumps "delay" on the KKK plus these kinds of supporters, plus his ads against the Central Park 5 will come back to haunt him.

Trump not only believed the Central Park 5 were guilty he later was against the police payout to the innocent black youths. That's going to be played up with BLM.

I think Hillary will get close to Obama black turnout with this method.

155 I get the distinct impression that the pro-Trump people around here are getting a great deal of satisfaction making the "If you're not voting for Trump, you're helping Hillary win" argument. Which I get. It's nice to be able to throw it back when you've heard it used against you for the past 8 (or more) years.

That being said. That particular argument is really the last intellectual argument you can make. You generate very little good will if that's what you use to persuade someone, and you know this (how enthusiastic were you in supporting McCain or Romney?). So if your goal is to effectively unite the party, it's in your best interests to avoid that particular argument until you've exhausted all other options. If your goal is just to stick it to the other guy as payback, by all means, ignore this.

We need to come together, somehow. The fact of uniting is more important than the details of how it's done.

The obvious rejoinder to my saying this is "how will we know they aren't just stabbing us in the back again?" and the answer is that whoever leads this unifying movement must be someone who is not a member of either party.

"meh" a lot like the legend of the Bullet Proof down filled Chinese coat vs .30 carbine in Korea....

If you want a self-defense solution .380 is sub-optimal anyway b/c of simple ballistic physics vice 9mm.

Those 2mms between 9*17 and 9*19 make a huge difference.

HP ammo in .380 (even ball) has a bad habit of deflecting off of
just about anything, even clothing. The Lehigh slug solves that.
.
.
.
.There are a few guys on Youtube that do actual ammo tests for various calibers. One is called TN Outdoors 9 and he has a very large bunch of videos on various calibers that he tests to FBI specs. He seems to have had some good luck with a few different JHP's in 380.

I personally love the Hornady XTP in both 380 and 9mm myself. Never had a single issue with either in literally thousands of rounds.

190 The left will have to stick their thumbs in their masters' eyes. We need to lead the way for them, as we have before with the tea party, which this bernie movement is a sad shadow of, and make it about outcomes, not ideology.

There is so much nonsensical about that I can only unpack a little of it. But let's start with outcomes..

The outcome, either way, is big government gets bigger, more intrusive, and the GOPe survives either way. I'm not interested in DJT "leading the way" toward a bigger, more intrusive government any more than I'm interested in The Witch doing the same. So if the left wins either way, where are they getting the thumb in the eye?

Oh no no, Brer Fox. Please don't throw me in that briar patch!

194 RawDawg asked in the last thread about the subgroups in the polls. Who is supporting Clinton and who is supporting Trump.

I've taken a quick look at the internals of the CNN/ORC poll that was just released, and there are some interesting trends.

First of all, to address JWest's concerns, the poll is nationwide telephone poll of 1,001 adults. The only screening or adjustments made are filtering for registered voters (and including those who plan to register), resulting in a sample of 890. The party affiliation difference is 31% Democrat, 26% Republican, and 43% Independents. I will concede that this does match the last election of D+6. However, they did not adjust their numbers, this is what they found in their sample.

Some interesting items from the subsets:

1) Both Trump and Clinton have solid support within their parties and those who lean toward a party. Trump has 83% and Clinton 91%. NeverTrump is not a determining factor in this poll.

2) Men split 47/47 between them. Clinton wins women 61/35, Trump wins whites 52/43, and Clinton wins non-white 81/14. That non-white vote is where Trump must improve his numbers to win, since he is already winning the white vote comfortably.

3) On the issues, the top issues for the respondents are the economy (88%), terrorism (81%), health care (81%), and education (82%). Fifth on the list is income inequality (60%). Way down the list are Hillary's issues of women, guns, and climate change. These are all issues that should be in Trump's wheelhouse. Yet he is losing by 13 in the poll.

4) When asked if their votes are based on support for a candidate or against the other you can see core upside support. 48% of Clinton voters are voting for Clinton, while 51% are voting against Trump. 43% of Trump voters are voting for Trump, while 57% are voting against Clinton. The opportunities for each candidate are for Clinton to drive up the "against Trump" vote and Trump to improve the "for Trump" vote.

5) Finally when looking at income/education metric you see the following. Under 50K income Clinton wins 60/36. Over 50K Clinton wins 50/45. College grads go for Clinton 59/36, while non college grads also go to Clinton 52/43.

I'll try to pay attention the next time I hear it. I think I've heard it a couple of times lately and that's how it crept into my subconscious.

It could also be from the worm in the tequila. Hard to tell these days.

Heh. The updated assignment sheet for this weekend's Lacrosse tournament
has come out. A co-worker will be doing most, if not all, of my on-air
slots, and I'll be working the camera/rig. This is not unusual, we're a
small company and everyone multi-tasks when need be, but the fact that
this particular co-worker is a lesbian did not go unnoticed by me. Oh
well, at least she'll do a decent job, she played Lacrosse in college,
knows her shit. Posted by: Lincolntf at May 05, 2016 11:45 AM (2cS/G)
=====

A couple of my daughters liked sports and were good -- but gave it up because it was almost some kind of lesbian signal, although they didn't care if someone wanted to go that direction. They just got tired of it. ROTC was another. They just did not want to deal with the perception, misunderstandings, and drama.

Depends.

I know that they are concerned about the future of this great nation and have been staunch supporters of freedom and justice in the past.

I had a mama hummingbird build a nest in a pine tree in the yard at my Arizona place. And two tiny babies. I took some pictures. But sadly, a feral cat got them; nest and babies gone. Don't know about mama hummer. I remember thinking to myself, "gee, that nest is awfully low down, what was she thinking?"

259 Everyone needs to step back from examining Trump with a microscope and look at the overall perspective. He has one enormous plus side which Obama, Hillary, and Bernie don't even have: Donald Trump doesn't hate this country or hate capitalism. Right now that is all we can hope for.

Posted by: Brother Cavil at May 05, 2016 10:25 AM

The Left ruins everything.

Cinco de Mayo was a Mexican-AMERICAN holiday, designed to be like St. Patrick's Day. It wasn't just a day to celebrate chicano heritage; it was above all supposed to be --- and actually WAS for a while --- a fun time for ALL Americans and, yeah, a profitable moment for Corona and Taco Bell. Whatever.

They picked the date for two reasons. One is precisely because Mexico doesn't "give a rat" about it. It was to be an American, NOT a Mexican thing. The other is that in the Battle of Puebla the USA was aiding the Mexicans against the French.

I can remember when people in Bumsquat, WV had Cinco parties, just the way they might have St. Patrick's Day ones --- and this without having a drop of Mexican or Irish blood in their veins. All-American fun.

But of course the fun was short-lived. The Left politicized it, made it just one more marker in their on-going hate-fest against the USA. So now Americans either hate it, fear it, or don't know what to think.

The Left ruins everything.

265 Re: the VP pick, it should be a more conservative Republican congressman. He won't go celebrity, even though it would be cool, because he does need an enforcer in the senate and the person has to be qualified to be president. Ok maybe that's not a given, but bear with me.

Looking at senators, and looking towards the bottom of the list for the youth portion, I see Cotton, Gardner, Sasse, Lee, Cruz, Rubio, Ernst, and Ayotte. Notable for youth alone, mind you. Tim Scott, Rand Paul, Tillis, and Toomey round out the short list, in my opinion. Other than Sessions, Pat Roberts, Jim Inhofe, and McCain himself, who am I missing with any kind of name recognition?

Looks like he'll be looking at the House, in my opinion.

The real question is will it be his choice or does he let the RNC dictate? I really doubt he goes with the latter.

Stonewall, I guess. I believe the cops showed up to close the place down in the '60's because gay bars were still illegal and the drag queens fought back. So it's like the gay Selma or something.

I'm really sorry nobody took pics or recorded the event, because I'd love to see a guy in a boa and heels trying to land a punch on a NYC cops in the days before PC.
