43 Publius,
You wouldn't believe what we found in the pool house. Our house was built in the 1920's. The pool house, ranch managers house and the kitchen and bathrooms and the master dressing room have been remodeled.
The pool house is a hundred yards from the main house.
I had the electrician here trying to fix the pool cover switch.
The power coming from the main house to the pool house was in a conduit to the pool house but the wires from the exterior were in the wall with no conduit. In the insulation.

I saw you talking about wiring in the last thread. The contractor that did the pool house did a shitty job. The previous owners did things piecemeal.
I had the electrician check everything. Everything else was fine. A couple minor (no safety hazards) things he found and fixed.

59 I know someone whose passion is to rescue cats. She has 40+ cats in a shitty little home, even though she and her husband are quite well off.

Their house smells hideous and makes me want to puke everytime I enter. They have a shit ton of kittens.

The point is, kittens are unsanitary. They are often smeared in their own feces and stink to high heaven.

What's wrong with Win10?

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

For the most part, it works just fine for me, but I had to do a bunch of tedious manipulations to get my internet to not run at speeds of 14,000 baud dialup. Also, I think it broke Camtasia.

I' gonna get a Windows 10 for Dummies book so I can plumb its depths and explore its wonders.

I would say that the software here is so obsolete that an Apple II would have no problem running it but given the TB3K manifested as its own conscious poster and then went to town I fear the Hamsters running the Pixyware might do the same.

And hamsters can bite ~hard~.

Posted by: Banana Splits Guy at August 02, 2016 11:18 PM (+b2T3)

76 The kittens are adorable but painful for me right now. I am having a feral mother cat and her five kittens trapped and removed (humanely of course) so that they can be relocated. Our vet says the kittens (4-5 months old) and the mother are too old to be rehabilitated and adopted (they are utterly feral and the mother is actually dangerous to us and our pets because she's so aggressive). He also says spaying/neutering would cost them the edge they need to survive in the wild. I don't really know about that last part but he's a 30-year country vet so I have to trust him. My wife is very upset and I have to admit I'm bummin pretty hard about having to do it. Nature is really hard sometimes.

81 43:
Back in the '20s, "knob and tube" was the standard. This was pretty much open wires (insulated, of course, with old timey insulation) mounted on porcelain insulators and open splices (insulated).

You'd see this stuff in attics and walls. Very old timey. There is still some of it around.

Put "knob and tube wiring" in Google and look at some of the images. Does that look like anything you've seen?

I'm thinking a pool was likely much later than when this was used.

That's a huge bummer, and I don't think the part about spaying/neutering is right if they're released in the right place. Me and my droogs have been feeding a trio of feral cats that were caught, neutered, and released back to the same alley they were caught in and they've been there for about 4 years living well thanks to the care of many attentive humans. I really don't like the idea of the girls having litter after litter after litter.

115 There's a difference between "wire" and "cable". By wire, one means a single insulated conductor. A cable, such as "romex" (this was a brand) name is a cable, with two or more "wires" enclosed in a sheath, which makes a cable. The proper term is "non-metallic sheathed cable", NM-B being the type designator. NM-C is another standard. UF underground cable meets the NM-C standard, but it is different from the underground direct burial standard for cable. But all UF cable meets it.

This is what goes through walls. The rules for when you can use romex, vs when conduit (of various kinds) much be used get complicated. Basically, for wood frame houses with no open wiring, you use romex. If it's going to be exposed (with some exceptions), you should use conduit.

Open romex looks jack-legged anyway. Now, another jack leg sign is romex through conduit.

Knob and tube was the old standard by which "wires" were run in the open, not in cable or conduit.

Yes, I have that stuff in the bunkhouse that's falling down. The pool house was remodeled maybe 25 years ago. I'm surprised it didn't burn down.
The old parts of my house are wired well but the conduit the wires are in are hard, they don't move. And the walls are plaster. We've talked about this before. I wanted the electrician to change the fuse boxes to switches from the glass light bulb type fuses but I don't want to cut the plaster walls.

135 @108 - Had the same thought but that line of thinking only works (or so says the vet) if, as in your example, you release them back where they were in the first place (which isn't tenable in my case because that's my back patio). The theory is that areas likely to accumulate ferals will fill back up to max capacity in short order and that the neutereds will dilute future breeding. These cats showed up after a flood from God knows where and won't go away; there have never been any other ferals before them. Therefore, they should be released elsewhere (the state park is the likely destination) to make what they will of life. I'd be lying if I said it didn't hurt to do this.

The electrician had to cut the drywall and put the wires in a conduit. He told me the inspector did a bad job or it wasn't inspected.
The wires I'm talking about were the ones the go in the fuse box. It really scared me. He told me that it was dangerous that if there were a spark the house would have caught fire.

158 Another type of cable they sometimes used, in fact, that 100 yr old great-uncle of mine's house was originally wired in it is "BX" or metallic sheathed cable, steel. They make an aluminum sheathed version now.

That will look metallic flex conduit at first blush. This stuff can be run exposed (but it looks sort of trashy and jack-legged again -- you just can't beat a good EMT job for looks for exposed wiring).

There was even some crazy type of cable known as "MI", mineral insulated. You had bare conductors inside a "mineral" insulating material, wrapped in a metallic sheath. They made special things for junction boxes and terminations, little sheaths that fit over the bare wires, and tighten down on the end of the cable for a junction box or other termination fit. It would look like normal insulated conductors coming in the box when done right.

I forget what it was used for, but that was an art form of cable.

As for the kittens? No idea. If I neutered them and they could get adopted then great. But if not they'll be euthanized. It seems to me that a shot at life in the wild is better than no chance at all.

177 If you're interested, look up Type MI cable. Copper clad, magnesium oxide powder insulation, packed in around bare copper conductors.

It is quite fire resistant, and is used in critical applications. It's also used in nuclear reactor wiring, I see. It's resistant to hard radiation. But it very NON-resistant to vibration and movement. That will mess up the "packed powder" insulation.

It's also expensive and time consuming to work with.

I have never been there, but have seen its location from the Soda Lake. You can't drive there from the lakebed though, they will bust you.

194 So, little slice of life from last night. I live a couple of blocks from a major thoroughfare. Last night, about quarter of ten, lights went out for about 30 seconds, then came back on at half -- a brownout. I called the local PD (the PD and the power company are both departments of the local government), and they said, "yeah, we've got procedures to pass along your report." Around midnight, I decide to walk to the fire station (easily walkable) to ask if they had any info. Nobody answered. When I got back to the house, the half-power had turned to no power.



So, hangin' around the darkened streetcorner , some neighbors show up. Everyone to my south and my west is dark; everything to my north or east is fine.



I finally decide to schlep down to the reputed problem and find fire guys and power guys all doing their thing. Evidently, a power line had fallen onto a shipping container filled with paper and lit some of it. A collection of engineering drawings, some dating back 100 years, that an engineering company had been trying to negotiate more than the $55,000 that the city had offered.....was about 50% incinerated or water-damaged.



Power came on shortly thereafter, then went off again -- then on, then off.... This is particularly bad for me because I'm on CPAP. It finally went on for good around 5 AM, and the fiancee looked out for me and didn't wake me at 7 AM. So my hours are all screwed but I'm reasonably functional.

218 @193 - Thanks CaliGirl. I did exactly that, and that's what they said they would do, release them back in my yard. But I have a 90 pound German Shepherd and it's his yard (he will also kill the kittens if he gets a hold of them as he was a rescue and has retained the small game prey drive). We also have a pool with guests around all the time. So, in short, I can't have six cats kicking it in my backyard, especially with mother cat acting like a psycho.

So, I figured, what's the difference between them living in the state park vs. living in my backyard, they've got to figure it out and survive on their own if they can't be domesticated.

I also called the county for advice and they were basically useless -- said they'd do it but would kill them that day.

226 The Obama administration secretly organized an airlift of $400 million worth of cash to Iran that coincided with the January release of four Americans detained in Tehran, according to U.S. and European officials and congressional staff briefed on the operation afterward.

Wooden pallets stacked with euros, Swiss francs and other currencies were flown into Iran on an unmarked cargo plane, according to these officials. The U.S. procured the money from the central banks of the Netherlands and Switzerland, they said.

The money represented the first installment of a $1.7 billion settlement the Obama administration reached with Iran to resolve a decades-old dispute over a failed arms deal signed just before the 1979 fall of Iran's last monarch, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.

244 Swimming pool grounding requirements are quite involved, and I'd have to look up the latest. There is a bonding requirement -- all exposed metal around the thing must be adequately bonded, to prevent any voltage between exposed metal parts.

And, IIRC, there was an "equipotential" grid requirement to be around the pool. There have been issues with stray voltages in certain situations, and this grid was to kill that risk.

But I think there was some controversy over it.

At any rate, swimming pool grounding is a complicated thing, and I'd have to some reading to find out just what the latest is (and see if I agreed with it or not, as well).

257 The house we live in was built of poured concrete. I figure the "older" part was built some time in the late teens or early twenties of the last century. The wiring was all two-line, run in conduit.

The "newer" part was added on in the mid-1930s in an entirely different style, heavy-duty Romex throughout.

It was easy to pull and replace the conduit with new three-line wiring. The Romex... still trying to figure out what to do about that.

_/\_

Favorite rewiring story: Chicago apartment building, built around 1910, remodeling in the mid-1980s. We removed a light fixture in the ceiling and... smelled gas. They had run the wiring through the old gas lighting pipes! Just a residual whiff, not connected to gas anymore, but kinda hair-raising for a moment.

Now, it's on but black. I put a flashlight through the apple on the back and nothing. I had a black screen after turning it on before, and I put a flashlight through the apple logo so I could log in and then it worked.

280 If you are like 99pct of users and just need a reliable computer that is just going to work for the next 5 years and not give you problems your best bet is a MacBook Pro or if you must have a wintel get a surface 4.

Posted by: Kreplach at August 02, 2016 11:54 PM (7C/kB)

The Surface Pro is a great computer. If staying with Windows and you are not needing a productivity machine I highly recommend.

And really, really pinkie swearsies I am not trying to get into a Mac/Windows war, but my experience with Macs as an internet machine has always been subpar. Love Macs for creating media content and video editing.

And Win10 is just fine. It will run kind of slow at first until it makes its network and internet connections. And you will need to install the latest peripheral drivers. I have not experienced a single crash on 4 machines, it plays nice, and the interface is even better than Win 7 in my opinion.

He was a very vocal die hard never trumper and a die hard pro Cruz guy. The polls were tied on July 24th. He lost by 14% tonight.

I see this as a good trend for America and bad for all incumbants including Paul Ryan and Never Trumpets. Also a great trend for Trump. Also shows the polls are full of Shit.

Nobody is safe. The conservativetreehouse has a article up about this race that is updated with analysis.

I do CPAP, depending on model it could be complaining about a bad seal on the pillow bed.

Depending on which mask he is using you may want to check the seals later on in the week.

Otherwise put your hand completely around the joint where the mask hose links up with the main hose leading to the machine itself.....

if the sound changes appreciably you need to tighten the seal.

317 "The rules for when you can use romex, vs when conduit (of various kinds)
much be used get complicated. Basically, for wood frame houses with no
open wiring, you use romex."

For quite a while in Chicago, it was conduit only, by code. In everything. Even ordinary wood frame residences. A political make-work sap to the electricians' union.

However, they had a quite low rate of electrically caused structure fires during that era.

Eventually the fast-buck yuppie condo developers bought off enough aldercreatures that the code was changed to allow Romex instead. After a decade or so of that, the electrically caused structure fire rate started to tick up, and rose slowly but steadily.

There is, but the emulation isn't perfect. I have found things that won't run at all under WINE even after much parameter fussing. (Older Windows programs which I suspect may have relied in places on undocumented API calls not present in WINE.)

And you wouldn't want to run a really heavyweight application under WINE: the overhead would be too much.

344 Re CPAP when it shows a leak it is often around the face mask, it may be too big or small. The nose type can also leak with high CPAP pressure "squeezing" out around the tubes that go into the nose. Check with your supplier of the equipment if the problem doesn't resolve in a few days. It takes time and maybe different masks to get the right fit.

347 Huelskamp was a pro-Cruz NeverTrumper, weirddave, who lost. His loss has the pro-Trump side ecstatic.

I've read one brief pro-Huelskamp comment claim the winner, Roger Marshall, was a CoC 'establishment' candidate but I don't know if that's accurate or (as several NeverTrump trolls here often claim) that the GOP establishment is now 'supporting' Trump so that makes any pro-Trump candidate a GOPe establishment one that's clearly untrue.

348 Yeah, it's the local code that is controlling, and certain localities go well beyond the NEC. (really, legally, a local body elects to require the NEC be followed -- it's always the local law that is at work) Romex is fine and dandy, when installed correctly and used correctly.

I learned something about "electrical causes" of fires. This can be sort of a default explanation, when a real investigation isn't done. I saw this first hand.

My grandmother's old house burned down back in the late '90s. My father had been renting it out, and it was actually a good thing. With the house gone, no more people pestering you to rent the thing.

The firemen got there and got it put out, but the house was gone, and we just bulldozed it. They had to list a cause of the fire.

The guy doing that just kicked around, saw the burned-out hulk of a dryer, and decided that was the cause. He asked everyone around, "That looks like it could have caused it, don't you think?" Everyone nodded, yep, it could have.

That's what got put down as the cause. Dryer electrical fault started the fire.

Looking around, it was patently obvious the fire actually started in the kitchen. That was where it had burned the most.

It didn't matter, it could've been something electrical in the kitchen or it could've been something else.

But they needed a "cause" to put down, and they weren't going to take the time and expense to do an actual detailed investigation.

Then it hit me, I wonder how often that goes on....... But in the official stats, that's one more "electrical dryer fire" that will be taken as gospel.

Debate in public rarely works; few are likely to be swayed.

If you find yourself engaged in a debate, just ask questions. Nod your head to the stupid, but find the little gaps and just offer innocent 'questions'.

Perfect example: guns

- We should ban all guns.

+ How will the police stop crime then?

- Oh, I mean, the police should have guns. No one else.

+ Police should have a different level of civil liberties?

- No, they just need them for their job. They're sworn to an oath.

+ What about bail bondsmen? Or firemen?

- Sure.

+ How many exemptions did you have in mind?

- Well, just cops then.

+ So you aren't concerned about cops shooting black men?

- Oh, yes, cops are racists.

+ So only racists should have guns?

At the mask, there is a vent where it intentionally leaks -- after all, the intent is not to inflate the user like a balloon. If the leak at the mask is blowing on the exhale, that's good -- you'll get fresh air from the CPAP; if the leak at the mask is blowing on the inhale, that's great -- it is assisting respiration. If you're getting a lot of leakage around the periphery of the mask instead of the designated vent, you should tighten the straps to seal better.

It's much more common to have mask fit problems than leakage in tubes.

367 Marshall (defeated Huelskamp) was endorsed by the Chamber of Commerce.


Make of this what you will.


I am only vaguely and indirectly aware of Huelskamp's record - but that limited/dubious info is that he was not a big part of the problem (i.e. "GOPe"). He is a member of the Freedom Caucus, and was "Tea Party" at his initial election, I think.


So - hmmm. Chamber wins vs. Freedom Caucus. Not excited by this, so far.


This, from The Hill:

"generally accepted that Leadership either looked the other way or, in some cases, encouraged independent expenditures in the race in order to defeat the sitting Member of Congress"


Aapparently the "so what?" of this is the idea that from now on, given the leadership's typically slimy semi-intervention in this race against an incumbent, the Freedom Caucus will feel free to do the same - OK, I'm still not too excited by this ...... 12-dimensional chess is sort of not the tool for this rapidly sinking ship)

Fucking Kevin McCarthy fundraised for Huelskamp's challenger. Now, the general rule is that leadership or any Republican entity stay out of the primaries of any Republican sitting incumbent. But McCarthy has done this before and lied about it in 2014. Didn't Eric Cantor do the same thing in a sneaky way with some PAC?

Maybe you should get excited about it because it means that anybody that opposes leadership will be fair game, rules or no rules.

I
thought there was a Linux app that allowed you to run Windows software.
I think it's called "Wine". You might want to look into it.


Posted by: OregonMuse at August 03, 2016 12:26 AM (RyJWo)


There are a variety of ways to run Win apps under Linux. Wine merely takes the Win system calls and translates them to Linux system calls. It can often take some kludging to have everything work right, and fundamentally compromises Linux security. You can also run a virtualized Win "ghost" in a hypervisor so that it only sees what you want it to see -- VirtualBox can run a full-fledged 32-bit Windows under Linux.

You realize that, over the course of the 20th century, the power of the Executive has increased dramatically in relation to the two other branches, particularly the legislative? To reverse this would require a major, sustained, and probably ugly effort.

You expect a load of politicians elected in a "Trump wave" - that is, a wave in support of a man who whines and attacks at any sign of disloyalty - to turn around and try to pry power from him?

Look, voting for Trump to stop Clinton, I get that. But if Trump wins he defines the party for a decade or more. We get two big-government authoritarian parties. He controls the electoral apparatus and is dominant throughout most of "conservative" media. This is a huge shift.

Quite honestly, I've lived through several liberal administrations. I haven't lived through a total party realignment that eliminates even lip service for Constitutionalism and Reagan Republicanism.

Yes.


Get out of your time machines you borrowed from ace, and come back to 2016.


In recent cycles we've had the country's most famous newspaper refuse to even print an op-ed by the GOP nominee. We've had a Dem spurn public funding and flaunt his campaign's fundraising violations in the country's face - the same candidate who effing opened his campaign in ..... a foreign country. Now we have an incumbent pres. publicly campaigning (first time in modern history), to include declaring one candidate unfit - on an overseas trip, in an official setting. These are just a few of dozens of things that would have been unthinkable, most of my life. Instant political death, or at least major damage.

Hillary is the first candidate in modern history to *hide from the electorate* as part of her campaign.

Posted by: Joanne at August 03, 2016 12:49 AM (hgBpU)

++++

Huelskamp was an irritant to the House leadership, both now to Ryan and before to Boehner. He didn't play nice with the GOPe, so they were happy to see him lose. But, Huelskamp was also very anti Trump. Said he wouldn't let his nine year old watch TV if Trump was on.

It made no sense for him to alienate Trump's supporters that way. Politically stupid. If things had come to pass that both Trump and Huelskamp were both elected, no doubt Huelskamp would disagree on some issues, and it would make sense for Huelskamp to stick to his principles and oppose Trump. But for a guy that is already on the wrong side of the Ryan camp to go out of his way to make enemies of the Trump camp was just stupid.

We want - precisely - the same things to happen.

455 408 Trump wants bigger government. He wants more power centralized in the executive. He wants more government programs. He rarely mentions freedom and liberty and he never mentions federalism.

This is not conjecture. He has said as much repeatedly and I doubt he'd deny it if asked.

457 Look, voting for Trump to stop Clinton, I get that. But if Trump wins he defines the party for a decade or more. We get two big-government authoritarian parties. He controls the electoral apparatus and is dominant throughout most of "conservative" media. This is a huge shift.

Posted by: person at August 03, 2016 01:14 AM (mFkVC)


This is all just hysterical. Trump could never be as big-government authoritarian as the current GOP leadership has been for the past decade so stop with the histrionics. You love to make all sorts of claims about what Trump WILL BE without any foundation for your musings or any reasons, other than you want to yell and scream about "Trump, the Fascist!!!", basically.

Come on. It's just getting silly to hear this stuff over and over. You must be feeling silly making these baseless claims over and over. Pretty much none of what you said above is true or even related to the truth.

You might want to look up his views on American Exceptionalism. He expresses them pretty openly. He discussed them in Texas right before entering the race and in a response to Putin's oped in the NYT in 2013, I believe.

469 The GOPe.
==================

I think the use of the word "hate" is provocative. Trump doesn't seem like a 'hater' to me. But he's a brawler and I think his current target is the MSM.

Trump is a celebrity. He knows how to work the press to get good coverage. But now he's in a political existential campaign where the normal press/celebrity rules no long apply, and he's staring at the MSM mailed fist for the first time.

Obama and Clinton have assembled a formidable front of powerful financial interests that wield their force through the popular culture and the conventional news media. Crony capitalists have a lot on the line and a lot to lose if Trump wins.

voted in 1996 for a man who belonged in the Senate, I voted in 2000 for
a man more moderate fiscally than I could stomach and did it again in
04, I voted in 2008 for another asshole Democrat supplicating Senate
clown I loathe only slightly less than Obama and watched the 2012
candidate essentially refuse to hit Obama as hard as he hit primary
opponents.
This is not a threat it is a promise, I will make it my

Reminds me of the other best electrical story from that 1910 building in Chicago.

When I first took over managing it, I opened up a long connector box in the basement. Spaghetti and snakes, tightly packed. Wiring nightmare. I closed the box and prayed I never had to deal with it. Although we did about everything else to the place, from furnace to roof, we never had to get into that.

Trump dances with who brung him -- and the great mass of American voters utterly loathe and despise the GOPe....either they've been speaking against progressivism (which is why they're loathed and despised by lefties), or they've been utterly ineffectual in fighting progressivism to the point of being collaborators (which is why they're loathed and despised by righties). By comparison he doesn't seem to hate at all -- he had the Clintons at his wedding.

But he dances with who brung him. Have a care where you throw that hate label around.....there is hate out there.

AFAIK, Cruz hasn't said boo since the convention. What happened there was Trump's choice. He had the text of speech, he could have sent his people out to incite cheers when the "vote your conscience up and down the ticket" line came up. Doing so would have created the impression of an implied endorsement-of course someone's conscience is going to see me as better than Hillary-and gone a long way towards creating a unified party. Any competent child knows this, when someone makes an ambiguous statement you immediately act as if it favors your position and run with that assumption, thereby setting the narrative. He didn't do that. He sent his people down to the floor to incite boos to teach Cruz a lesson. The former course of action hurts Clinton, the later, Cruz. From this (and other things) I infer that Trump hates Cruz more than Clinton.

Once we outsource manufacturing, remote classrooms, customer service, tech support, R+D, administration, finance, and PR to their billion hungry workers, how many repairmen are we actually going to need? 'Cause the rest of the US has blowjobs or starvation in its future.

It's racist to point out facts....

like for example....

Captain Khan was joined by 13 other Muslim combat deaths in this conflict....so we must shut up and elect Gram b/c .002333333333% of Gold Star Families want unfettered Chain Migration from Syria.... *maybe*

Extra credit racist hate fact.....

21 US Military members have been killed in this conflict by Sudden Jihad Syndrome....

so my asshole math puts that at negative seven until I even begin to give a damn about Khan's dad....

Yep 22LR has *still* not recovered from the last panic. What's that, 3 years now?


I believe one of the big producers actually was set to bring a large new factory online in the last year or two - if so, no supply effect evident yet. I'd like to believe it's more the increased number of shooters and their increased shooting, as opposed to just prudent stockpiling being taken to new heights.


I only have two 22s and they have seen less action the last two years for sure.


But I started my first bottleneck rifle reloading (30-06), for the M1, and that's been fun. I bought two AR lowers and will build them up slowly as I learn about the platform - but I can already see why these "Legos for adults" are so popular.

Didn't it really start back towards the start of the primary? Trump and Cruz had their pact not to go after each other. Then Cruz answered a question from someone at a fundraiser about why they should support Cruz instead of Trump. Cruz answered something to the effect that Trump lacked good judgement. Trump viewed that as Cruz breaking his word and started going after Cruz. Lyin' Ted was born.

Trump has been entirely consistent about who he goes after from the beginning: if someone comes at him, he gives as good as he gets, and then some. Cruz had the right idea in trying to stay on Trump's good side, but he thought he could have it both ways by acting neutral in public but smearing Trump when he thought he was out of the public eye. Cruz's duplicity bit him in the ass.

If we don't know, then why should I accept your premise?

I have actually looked. All of the studies I have found conclude that foreign-born residents do not commit violent crime at any greater rate than the native-born residents. And yes, "foreign born" does not necessarily mean "illegals", but I honestly have not seen any rigorous study of the violent crime rate committed by illegal aliens. I am immediately skeptical of any citation from Breitbart, from obvious reasons, but I will look at it when i get a chance.

Sven, I like you, but I wish you would quit it with these strawmen.

Nobody here is arguing that illegals should have "felony equality" or that the border shouldn't be enforced.

The POINT is, if the desire for increased border enforcement is motivated by wanting to reduce *violent* crime, but if studies show that the foreign-born don't commit violent crime at any greater rate than the native-born, then this desire is based on a false premise.

Do you really think anyone other than Hellary or Trump will be elected? And will it make you satisfied to know that Hellary, like her husband before her, wins the presidency with just a plurality of votes instead of a majority?

Lastly, and this is a rhetorical question because we both know the answer and I'm late to bed, but do you spend an equal time being this eloquently anti-Hellary on left-wing blogs (since you just want to free people from the false choice of two failed candidates)?

638 I believe one of the big producers actually was set to bring a large new factory online in the last year or two - if so, no supply effect evident yet. I'd like to believe it's more the increased number of shooters and their increased shooting, as opposed to just prudent stockpiling being taken to new heights.

It's all very weird. I don't think it has anything to do with shooters or stockpiling. I think it's more related to the weirdness of 22 magazines almost always being 10 rounds when every other caliber was jumping through the roof with higher capacity. Yeah, I know there are a few exceptions, but it is just so weird that the smallest ammo around would be stuck with the minimal capacity mags for all these years (excepting the PMR-30, banana mags for rifles and the like). It's something about 22LR, itself, and government pressure.

I only have two 22s and they have seen less action the last two years for sure.

Yep. I used to love to buy a big box of 22 and go shoot 300 rounds. It's hard to find good fun that cheap. But now I haven't shot my 22 in a very long time. I've still got about 1000 rounds left but I just don't feel like pissing it away in a few afternoons at the range.


But I started my first bottleneck rifle reloading (30-06), for the M1, and that's been fun.

Nice.

639 The POINT is, if the desire for increased border enforcement is motivated by wanting to reduce *violent* crime, but if studies show that the foreign-born don't commit violent crime at any greater rate than the native-born, then this desire is based on a false premise.

In a zero sum game, that would be true. If removing 1000 foreigners meant that 1000 natives took their place, then sure, removing the 1000 foreigners would not reduce the amount of crime (assuming for the sake of argument that natives and foreigners are equally crime prone).

But, it is not the case that removing 1000 foreigner will cause 1000 natives to materialize. So, removing the foreigners also removes the criminal element among them, thus reducing the number of crimes taking place over all.

All the future murders that will be committed by those deported foreigners will take place back in their native land instead of on American soil.

644 In 2004 95% of the outstanding homicide warrants of the LAPD were for illegals.


A few years after that, the number by which CA prisons exceeded the "allowed" population as determined by the courts (adequate conditions of confinement issues) was almost *exactly* the number of foreign citizens in CA prisons.


GAO examination of criminality among illegals - though hampered by data problems, has shown incarceration rates at large multiples of any plausible estimated % of the population.


One can expect data confirming the lack of any systematic connection between atmospheric CO2 content and "climate" to be as abundant, lavishly funded, and highly touted as simple stats about illegals' criminality, which has to be extracted from mostly local and state data. And if you think the police depts. of major metro areas, where the bulk of serious crime occur, are in any hurry to turn over that hornets' nest, you aren't thinking clearly.

They are objectively invaders, and -- even at their best -- they intend to underbid the wages of actual citizens. Since they cannot legally register for payroll taxes, they defraud the public purse of those revenues. And, if they're injured, they are patched-up using workers' comp systems to which they have not contributed. To get to work, they drive unregistered cars without drivers licenses or required amounts of insurance.....leaving citizens as patsies when they lawfully drive the same streets. When they commit torts, they disappear.

You should read your link with care. The deception starts in the very first sentence:

The alleged murder of Kate Steinle in San Francisco by illegal immigrant Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez has reignited the debate over the link between immigration and crime.

They start by talking about a horrific murder carried out by an illegal immigrant, but by the end of the sentence they are talking about plain old immigrats. And all the studies the cite thereafter are talking about plain immigrants. For all of your *EMPHASIS* on how there is no correlation between illegals and violent crime, your cite is non-pertinent.

If you actually dig into those links, you'll see that there are (at least to my knowledge) no real studies on specifically the link on *illegal* immigration with violent crime. What the studies that are based on Census data have shown, is that the rate of violent crime by the foreign-born is less than the rate of violent crime by the native-born, and please remember the Census does count (or attempt to count) illegals as "foreign-born" so they are included in the total. Now it is mathematically possible for illegals to have a high crime rate but non-illegal foreign-born to have a very low crime rate such that their weighted average is still less than that of the native-born, but it certainly doesn't seem all that plausible.

If you can find a link to an actual study (no Breitbart link, FFS) which has investigated the link specifically between violent crime and *illegals*, then I would love to see it. I have looked and I cannot find one.

Are you?

Respecting the dignity and humanity of illegals? Absolutely not. They are to be shipped out, post haste.

You haven't presented any sort of study which has demonstrated this. All you all have presented is a Breitbart link. Forgive me if I don't accept it at face value. I have, on the other hand, provided links to actual studies which have researched the issue and found that the foreign-born do not commit violent crime at any higher rate than the native-born.

Posted by: chemjeff at August 03, 2016 03:07 AM (EAnQi)


I haven't presented any links. That was someone else. I don't need to. We have all read the relevant information over the years to know. Some of us just choose to play ignorant.

And would you PLEASE STOP with this asinine "foreign-born" crap. Who do you think you are fooling with this shit? Or are you just trying to fool yourself.

We are talking about ilegals, not foreign-born Americans, not legal permanent residents, not legal visa holders (excepting, of course, the illegals that Barky illegally gave personal "stay in America" notes to that the Vichy GOP was more than happy to support and fund). We are talking about ILLEGALS. Understand?

And it's intensely funny that you think that people breaking into our nation who come from ultra-violent societies are, somehow, just like Americans. It boggles the mind that you would even propose such a silly and intellectually offensive idea. Do you even have any idea how cheaply individual life is in Central and South America. I mean, FFS. Your argument is infantile, at best and for the most part, as I wrote above, intellectually offensive.

The links demonstrated exactly what I said, that the violent crime rate of the foreign born is lower than the violent crime rate of the native born. In one study, the violent crime rate of the foreign born is *half* the violent crime rate of the native born, after controlling for other variables. Are you going to tell me that the violent crime rate of illegals is SO LARGE that even when you combine it with the violent crime rate of non-illegal foreign born, that it still works out to *half* of that of the native born? That seems implausible.

What does it matter in any statistical sense? No one has argued against the proposition that illegals, or even Latinos generally, may commit violent crime. Pointing to 10 Latinos as violent criminals says nothing about violent crime rates compared to that of the native born overall.

720 Good morning Morons. I have completed compiling the VNN links for today. On "illegals":


By definition 100% of all illegals are criminals. After all, they are not called "illegal" aliens for nothing.


1st offense is a misdemeanor


2nd offense and more is a felony


And I have seen "studies" that say in general violent crime by illegals is greater than the population in general, 20% vs 15% and that even includes the exceptional high crime rate among blacks in the "general".


These reports also say it is very difficult to compile data on this because federal agencies intentionally make the data obtuse and difficult to find, if not outright non-existent. It appears the feds have long had a desire to hide this data.


And to sum up this argument tonight, there is an old cliche; "you can't argue logic with someone who arrived at their conclusion without using logic."

Not familiar with their rating system, but as I said, he has long had mid-90's rating from the ACU which makes a good case of being a conservative. And Boner kicking him off the Agriculture Committee for being too conservative is another good argument.

Posted by: Vic We Have No Party at August 03, 2016 05:27 AM (mpXpK)

He made no bones about being a #neverTrumper. Check his twitter timeline if you don't believe me.

with pants cropped just below the knees for a sporty effect. Here are
some favorite spinoffs of Clinton's suit to try before summer is gone.

Pant suits are in!

848 "Huelskamp has a 94.4 lifetime rating, as I said he is a solid conservative and he was kicked off by Boner for opposing Boner's massive cave in to Obama on spending. "

As I said. Open up the phone book and start tossing darts. Seriously, we cannot do worse than the feckless Congress that we have now.
Over half of them are raging globalists who could not give one twit about the people who put them in office and the other half are the ones who have warned us consistently of what will happen should Hillary get elected and get, as one example of many, 3-4 SCOTUS picks that would, thy their own words, change the country dramatically.


And then they surrender the war.
Scum I say.

849 Had a woman who was running for some office knock on my door a while back. Democrat. Told her I was a registered Dem when I moved to AZ in 1990 (true) but couldn't vote for them anymore because of forced O-care.

The look on her face turned to outright anger. She just couldn't handle the honesty. It was a sweet moment.

For the record I've been voting gop since Reagan (long story).

850 I earned a nice commission on the pallets of cash we shipped to Iran to free our sailors, after their propaganda value was used up. This hostage business is good business.

Careful man. I got jumped all over as a Hillary supporter the other day when I griped at his statement that he's in favor of raising the minimum wage because he cares about people unlike Republicans.

Posted by: mugiwara at August 03, 2016 06:56 AM (lThpb)

852 The entire minimum wage thing is a joke actually. But not for union members as Vic pointed out. What dollar amount people are willing to work for is established by government benefits for not working.

Reduce the benefits and people would line up for minimum wage jobs.

But Bill Clinton said he ended welfare, 'as we know it'. That's correct. He ended one system and started another.

My understanding was that the $400M in cash was sent to free the 4 American hostages, not the sailors. They probably gave them something else for that.

Someone need to remind the stupid Turd'n Chief about Danegeld.

No, the $15/hour minimum wage push WAS started by SEIU because of a clause in their contracts that gives them an automatic increase any time the federal minimum wage is increased. They are not working for min age, but what ever they get is increased by the same percentage that the min wage goes up.

Posted by: Vic We Have No Party at August 03, 2016 07:00 AM (mpXpK)

855 Also, ending welfare "as we know it" was done by the Gingrich congress. Clinton vetoed it twice before the Republicans rounded up enough Democrats to pass it veto proof.


The Clinton victory is a MFM generated lie.

I thought it was a multiplier like 2.5 X minimum wage? Whatever, math. I know that unions don't work for minimum wage.

Have you ever been inside a union hall? I had to go to a wake once for a retired school teacher. Opulent. A dozen different beer taps. Big screen television to rival a football stadiums. Pretty much gag inducing.

They customarily negotiate "minimum wage plus" hourly rates in their hospital contracts, which is why they rattle the federal minimum wage cup literally all the time. Getting one raise will just start the campaign for the next one, unemployment rates be damned.

When they run any hillary article is is always positive and upbeat.

The fact that it was unmarked bills, o the same day as the hostage release was nothing but a coincidence.

approve that yuuuuge spending bill that RINO Ryan is trying to push
through. I say they need to get rid of Ryan first. We also need to get
rid of these last minute lame duck sessions. These are a relatively new
thing and that is where a LOT of congressional mischief occurs.

She has zero influence as a trendsetter - her clothes are only noticeable as being fugly. She buys some of her suits from the same Hollywood-basd designer as Lizzie Warren, and yet Warren always looks sharp. Hillary has bad taste AND a hideous body she has to actively distract us from noticing.

889 While it's devastating on its own that Obama paid Iran that ransom for the 4 Americans, he had freakin leverage in that moment: he could have told Iran we would stop all negotiation of the "deal" until they were released. At this point it should be obvious to all that he's sided with Iran. Guess this explains why his post-presidential DC house is within 100 ft or so of the Iranian embassy.

Do you guys who don't live in California know that California is now majority Hispanic?

So, yes, the majority of crime will be Hispanic.

Probably a ton of illegals, too. I support deporting all illegals and especially criminals, but assuming that anyone with a Hispanic name is an illegal in California is a dumb assumption.
