When the United States of America had the chance, we should have colonized and claimed Canada as our own.

OTTAWA — The federal government has outlawed a wide range of rifles with the aim of making Canada safer, saying the guns were designed for the battlefield, not hunting or sport shooting.

The ban issued Friday covers some 1,500 models and variants of what the government considers assault-style firearms, meaning they cannot be legally used, sold or imported, starting immediately.

The list includes the popular AR-15 rifle and the Ruger Mini-14 used to kill 14 women at Montreal’s Ecole Polytechnique in 1989.

“Today we are closing the market for military-grade assault weapons in Canada,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told a news conference.

The ONT Is Always Looking Out For YouTM. The best tequilas under $30.00

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Did you know that May 5th is a celebration of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War? Now you do.

Will most of you use Cinco de Mayo as an excuse to drink a lot of agave-forward cocktails and indulge in a shot (or three)? Probably, and count us in.

This is not your guide for sipping tequilas (though we do suggest one). This is a day of modest pleasures; below, a curated selection of tequilas that are unpretentious, reasonably priced ($30 or less) and versatile — they’ll work well on their own or in cocktails.

“I think tequila has one of the widest ranges of quality from the bad to the good,” says Mark Murphy, an independent bar consultant. “You can avoid the hangover by sticking to better tequila. But the good thing is that ‘better’ doesn’t have to mean drastically more expensive.”

'How The Mafia-Camorra War Determined The Fate Of Organized Crime In America'

We might not even know the name Mafia today had this fledgling criminal group not narrowly defeated the rival Camorra gang in a bloody war on the streets of New York between 1915 and 1917.

There are few organized crime groups as legendary and notorious as the Sicilian Mafia. In the 20th century, this infamous criminal organization exerted enormous influence, and even today Cosa Nostra families control sizable criminal empires.

Are we Americans weird? Many non-Americans think we are.

People That Aren’t From the West Describe Things Americans Eat That They Find Weird

We hear about people eating bats, Pangolins, Vegemite, and live octopus and think it’s extremely weird, but people outside the West think the same thing about some of the very common things that we eat. Here are some of the things non-Westerners think it’s weird for Americans to eat:

— The first thing I ever ate when I got off the plane in the USA was a big greasy slab of pepperoni pizza. You gotta understand I ate only fish, pig or some kind of bird with rice before hand. Seeing that for the first time made my stomach churn till I was encouraged enough to finally take a bite… and holy shit if I wasn’t singing “A whole new world” with my taste buds after that. Soon after I tried burritos, tacos and nachos and I within a year was obese…

Let's see, when I go to the bank I normally deposit checks, currency & checks. Not our Genius Award Winner.

Meet David Pangallo of Jefferson County, Colorado.

David is just trying to make his way through this mixed-up crazy world, while making money and participating in our thriving economy. Why, he has so much money the bank knows him by name.

Case in point: an incident in Jefferson County where deputies said 34-year-old David Pangallo allegedly deposited two bags of cocaine along with his cash at a bank on the 8300 block of Continental Divide Road on Friday.

I saw this in a Facebook group to which I usually pay little attention. It was posted by someone in the health care field from Indiana. Where have we heard this type of condescending, know it all, and prickish rhetoric before?

There has been a strange narrative shift from the first few weeks of the pandemic. Folks on social media have turned bitter and lashing out. Suddenly folks who haven't picked up a math book since high school are screaming about economics, folks who passed high school health class with a "C" are suddenly smarter than virologists, epidemiologists, infectious disease doctors, and nurses.

Unwashed masses have taken their AR-15's and a misunderstanding of science to state houses. Here they hold signs about hair cuts, while nurses and doctors suffer from sores from extended N95 usage.

Instead of demanding more rent relief,
Instead of demanding more stimulus money,
Instead of demanding safe working conditions,
Instead of demanding higher pay for essential work,


Oh, THERE was the appeal to things that are most important, without question!

They simply want their "freedoms" back. Their freedom to willingly infect others, and force any who be vulnerable to live in terror of going out. Their protests don't even make sense.

I don't think I've ever seen a larger group of unpatriotic masses gather since the Confederacy. Certainly never a gathering of more selfish ignorant Americans. Wait, is Ignorant even the right word for them?

I understand that ignorance is just the lack of knowledge, but what is refusal of knowledge called? What is willingly refusing science and experts to fit your own narrow ideology called?

Why do people who can't tell the difference between a neutrophil and a basophil think we should take advice on how to handle a pandemic from them? I would never go to a hair salon and tell someone how to do a foil, I would never go to an RV factory and tell someone they are doing their job wrong. They are experts in their field.

Yet we are constantly bombarded with people doing the same to the medical field.

Stay home.
Wear a mask if you go out.
Wash your hands.
Remember your internet research does not qualify you to give medical advice.
Pet your dog or cat.
Have a good day.


Closed, of course, with a begrudging and half-hearted attempt to be polite: "Tug your forelocks, you loathsome plebes, and I'll feign being nice to you!"

The only thing that could explain this window-licking idiocy is CYA if the driver comes down with ChineseLungRot, sues, and they want to show due diligence in court.

I went to the local Costco last evening, around 6pm on a Friday night.

Usually, you have difficulty finding a parking spot.

Last night, maybe 20% of a normal Friday night. It was a ghost town.

For the first time, they were limiting meat purchases. Limit 3 packages. Of course, the Costco hamburger package is around 5 pounds of 88% lean.

Got two of them, plus a pack of boneless ribeye steaks.

Repacked the hamburger into half pound or one+ pound Ziploc bags, the 3 pack of 150 bags, of course also at Costco, and now everything is portioned out and in the freezer.

With a reported 70% increase in wholesale beef prices this week, and farmers in a genuine pickle, at least I am set for a few weeks.

Kind of like driving on the top half of the tank when gas was in a spot shortage years ago.

Unfortunately, I only have limited freezer space.

But for now, eat, drink, and be merry.

There's like six flavors of SPAM now including, I think, a low sodium one.

When I was a kid, my Mom kept SPAM around because, as a working Mom, she could make a fast and cheap meal for three from one can. (A quickie B-B-Q SPAM, sliced with white vinegar and brown sugar cooked until the liquid was a syrup.) Now SPAM is, how shall I say?, not cheap.

Now starting Altered Carbon on Netflix and it seems promising.

Just biding my time until the next Praxis novel by Walter Jon Williams comes out in December, the final Expanse novel (#9) comes out sometime this year, and perhaps there will be a Chuck movie before the heat death of the universe.

254 I have only met 2 Canadians in the past 10 years. One guy commented (out of the blue) that Northern Idahoans were racist. Since I raised my kids in the panhandle, made sure he knew that was bs. Assume all Canadians aren't soy boys, but this guy was a cuck.
Posted by: EdmundBurkesShade at May 02, 2020 10:43 PM (gSgAd)

The Canadian Commie press really made a big deal of that little dustup with the Aryan Nations types in that one town there. Made out like the whole Panhandle was swarming with them, instead of there being maybe two dozen, and half of those being FBI agents.

296 As to food: when a supply chain (or any organizational chain) breaks down at any point, either the consumption end or the production end, the failures propagate through the rest of the chain, in all directions.

This is why I have been so pessimistic about a quick recovery, it's not intuitive to realize how failure modes propagate and grow. But that's what is happening in the food system.

316 The commies have learned not to define prohibited weapons by feature, because they can't logically defend why say an AR-5 with a foregrip is an assault weapon and one without isn't.

So they just add every model they don't like to a list. Canaderp's new gun ban has pages and pages and pages of models of AR-15 that are prohibited. They also banned all variants of m1a and mini-14.

Now there's no argument about the inconsistencies in feature definition, it's on the list or not.

I believe California went with a whitelist as opposed to Canada's blacklist.

Yeah, Master locks are pretty easy. I've managed to pick a few (Average Son got into lockpicking so I naturally tried my hand at it). The tubular locks are easier because the pick tool sets the pins and remembers the sets, so you don't have to maintain constant tension and risk losing the sets. I was surprised since I've always assumed tubular locks to be more secure.

I haven't heard that before, but I like it.

I was fortunate to live around some housing projects for awhile and in a trailer park for 6 months.

The older I get, the more I realize that even when you are rich and powerful, anybody can still have trailer park tendencies.

I mean Jeff Bezos is texting pictures of his junk to a chick.

Multi-millionaire ball players still get caught with blow and hookers.

Clinton was banging interns in the Oval Office.

I think the trailer park gets a bad rap, honestly.

338 17 "When the United States of America had the chance, we should have colonized and claimed Canada as our own."


Completely serious, I have read a few articles in the last year why it makes sense that Alberta leave Canada and join America.

The way oversimplified reasoning was that essentially, Canada has fooked themselves so badly with PC, they are turning into Mexico economically, and the leadership doesn't either understand it, or care about it.

Calgary has the only hope of remaining a first-nation level by becoming state #51. And the articles say that time is ticking, there is a limited window for this to happen, or it makes no sense for America to consider it.

Who knows? Certainly nothing that Progda would ever mention.

Posted by: Legally Sufficient at May 02, 2020 11:24 PM (WFcrO)


I ate those kippers in a can once. ONCE. Puked my guts out.

As far as canned sardines go, the sardine filets in a can have a place in the kitchen, specifically adding them at the beginning to a red sauce/gravy, breaking them up. Can't taste them but they do add depth of flavor. Main problem is you only need a couple for a large batch of sauce/gravy. The rest of the can is cat food, if I had a cat.

Occasionally, I'll buy the canned clams. Ground up in a food processer and added to sour cream or cream cheese with a few herbs/spices makes a decent clam dip. But eating them as they are? No way.

I once got lucky enough to hit a gas station that for some reason was discontinuing them and got about 30 of them for $40. I had to limit myself to a couple a week.

WRT "kicking our ass", as far as I know the territorial division wound up as status quo ante, making the United States 1-1-0 against the most powerful empire in the history of the human race.

Well, you could partition BC, too. 90% of the moonbattery is found on Vancouver Island, and that part of the mainland locally known as the "Lower Mainland". Basically the Fraser River valley and tributary rivers downstream of the town of Hope, and the Gulf Islands, and communities on the coast from Squamish to Powell River.

While there are moonbats in Interior cities like Kamloops, Kelowna, and Prince George, they would be badly outnumbered by the good BC rednecks.

And the bulk of the resources, minerals, petroleum, and agriculture are in the Interior. And the "Interior" sector would get all the coastline from Powell River north to the Alaska border, including a world-class harbor at Prince Rupert.

I am right there with you on the early obsession with the space program. In fact it turned out to be a lifelong journey. I spent many years working in the Flight Crew Training building where the Apollo guys trained with the lunar hardware decades before. We found an old tube of photos that no one ever knew existed of astronauts all suited up practicing with the Link simulator under the raised floor in the high bay in 2000 or so when we were running a new power cable.. What a freakout that was! Our GM stole them and got the astronauts to personally sign them.

Kate Brown too. All three OR CA and WA governors have a mutual suicide pact.

A notice went out to OR state workers Friday that the Governor's office is asking for a 17% reduction in budgets for the remaining biennium due to "reduced expected revenues"

Last year they exceeded the budget projection so much the automatic rebate was kicked in.

17.7% rebate there too, amazingly enough. I wonder if that is connected, somehow? Unable to budget much, Carpetbagger?

So I am sour, and out of sorts and ready to commit mayhem on any tzoit that decides to spout "reasonable surrender" out XIS piehole

I would just attach the Lower Mainland/Vancouver Island rump to Washington State. No new star. No new Senators, maybe a few congresscritters, is all.

There is sort of a historical precedent. Vancouver Island was originally a Crown Colony in it's own right, and mainland BC was sort of a hunk of the then Northwest Territories. In 1858, they were merged into the new colony of British Columbia, this merger being spurred on by the Cariboo Gold Rush.

557 How I would invade Canada, assuming I was the "US=Hitlaaaar!!!!!" sterotype popular among Canadian communists:

1) Bomb Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, and Vancouver flat. I mean, bounce the rubble flat.
2) Drop all bridges on the Trans-Canada Highway and the CN railroad.
3) Bomb all hydroelectric dams.
4) Mine the St. Lawrence Seaway (which means our ships would need escorts who knew where the mines were, but omelets, eggs).
5) Roll armored divisions into Manitoba and Alberta over that nice, flat prairie. We'll want that oil and wheat later.
6) Wait one winter.
7) Take control of the rest of the country, shooting the few remaining starving, cannibalistic survivors.

But, oddly, despite being WORSE THAN HITLER, no U.S. administration has ever done anything like that.

Funny, innit?

I mean, not just Hitler, but what would Stalin have done to a rich, undefended country on his border? What would Mao have done? Hell, what would the classic British Empire have done?

Maybe we're not quite as much the evil imperialists as the communists claim we are? Maybe?

But that still doesn't give us a drive path from the lower states to Alaska. The one time we went up there was by plane and, well, I'd like to visit the relations up there again, but I've got this thing against flying now. And leaving the confines of the USA.

Those Hornets attack and eat Honey Bees. They can also give you a hell of a sting. And I imagine if you got close to their nest, it's possible to be stung multiple times and possibly die.

568 I grew up in a family of lousy cooks, so I've had Spam prepared many ways. Also lots of Vienny sausages. Since some of the Korean vlogs I've watched use Spam in cooking, I bought a small can and the Spam with bacon. Small can was not bad. The "slime" is gelatin. I have seen it rinsed off but haven't tried it. It's getting hard to find Spam from Amazon. I decided to get tuna and canned sardines this time. That with rice and veggies should make a good meal. And I ordered what I think is good kim chee from Amazon. It's fresh, made in Portland I think. It's the first time I've had it. I like it, I think, but it's hard for me to figure out how to use it.

Another Chicom scourge unleashed. The "East Asian Murder Hornet". It's a giant hornet capable of killing humans. They kill about 50 people per year in East Asian.

They've been spotted here on the West Coast in the US and Canada. They attack honeybee colonies, dragging the bees out and chewing their heads off.

It's venom is a neurotoxin which can cause cardiac arrest as well as anaphylactic shock.

Chicoms let that loose, probably on ships transporting all the Chinese shit.

Why the hell are restrictions not easing? I can understand being worried when all we knew was horror stories from China about people dropping dead in the street, but now we have enough information to know it's comparable to flu. There's no reason to do more than we do for flu (and if we aren't already protecting vulnerable populations like nursing homes from the flu, then we should be).

These damned hornets are about 2" long with a 3" wingspan. They have long stingers capable of penetrating standard bee suits.

599 I assume that, if the vandalism joy ride of the likes of Inslee continues into June, when most likely it will be pretty well established that C-19 fatality is similar to/less than flu for healthy people 70, it will become a Trump/them political issue.

Of course I'm indulging the current illogic up above.

Fatality rate, though thankfully looking fairly "normal", isn't even the point.

Think and remember waaaay back to mid-March. What was the entire rationale for mitigation (all the restrictions we've seen)?

Reducing eventual total deaths? No*.

Stamping out the virus? No.

Manipulating timing of caseload to avoid exceeding medical capacity at a given time (during the first peak, always the highest).

Oh. So. WHAT are we doing NOW? What? Listen to the various state rationales for continuing restrictions, and behold utterly unscientific and illogical contradiction of basic epidemiology. And dream of someone asking - "Hey governor - why have we dismantled our emergency acute care capacity, but we're still going mitigation?"

* any lives saved, total epidemic, would only be any lost specifically to triage driven by lack of medical capacity at peak - otherwise, no difference in total deaths, just timing of acute caseload

One sting will not kill you unless you're allergic, but it will hurt like a son of a bitch. About 10 stings will require medical treatment, and 30 is an emergency. With 30 or more, it will kill you without treatment.

621 Rodrigo, yes.

I realize a lot of people here are clairvoyant, and/or much smarter than some of us, and *knew* with a certainty that things would go the way they would, but in my case I'm willing to recognize the rational, non-crazy, if untested theory behind radical mitigation starting mid-March*.

But once it was clear that nowhere, not even NYC Metro, where it was close, was medical capacity exceeded, nor would it be during this first wave, literally the specific rationale for mitigation *ended*.

Especially in light of emerging fatality rate, which is far from apocalyptic.

Given the foundational science of epidemics, once these things were clear, mitigation no longer made sense. "Phasing" and benchmarks make no sense. Contact tracing makes no sense (not something that will influence outcomes now, well into an outbreak).

Isolate medically infirm/elderly - makes sense.
Continue crash program work on treatment to reduce case fatality rate - makes sense.
Continue crash program to find vaccine - makes sense.

We know these questions aren't being asked in public, of public officials, at any level, because we have a dumbed-down, useless press. We wonder whether Trump & team have yet confronted task force with them. Yet all over the intertubes, they're being asked - and nobody is giving any kind of answer - because they don't have one.

I would also add from a medical standpoint, that overall deaths in hospitals are now being "mis-labeled" as COVI in certain cases because the forms that doctors are filling out as _standard Morbidity Reports are pressing them to be 100% certain that death was of an earlier co-morbidity or natural causes...oh and by the way if positive for COVI....then you must list that as the cause.......

These films were explained as morale- and confidence-boosting efforts. Probably worked (well, until the unavoidable "oh s**t!" perfectly normal shock and panic in first combat).

I doubt the M1 could shoot through a coconut palm (wonder if that's been tested?). Fibrous, tough SOBs - the palm log/sand bunkers built by the Japanese (well, often by their Korean forced laborers) in the tropical Pacific battles withstood most US ordnance.

The killer bee thing was mostly media hype. They were "created in a lab" by interbreeding African honey bees with European, trying to create a bee that could do much better honey production in South American climates.

These bees were much more defensive than regular European bees and tended to do swarm attacks on perceived threats.

They are not that big of a problem. But they will kill a few people per year, through those swarm attacks.

I live in a very Palm Heavy locale.

I'll testify. Palm will bog down your chainsaw, in short order.

UNLESS you know how to defeat the palm, and attack, accordingly.

In the ballistic case, it's all AP rounds, regardless of caliber.

Even artillery.

Punch through the logs, first.

Explode, later.

Win.

643 Finally did an inventory of my primer strategic stockpile tonight.

Plenty. (that's a technical term for a lot)

I note that there's a "light to moderate" panic evident in reloading component supply, based on an ammoseek.com and other sleuthing. Powder doesn't look too bad, but most used primers (small pistol) below normal stocks.

It's kinda akin to the toilet paper crisis - that is, a head-scratcher - but doesn't seem to have been too deep, and I expect all will return to normal soon.

Happy for the boost that the firearms and related industries got out of this. They were not booming as during the Obambi years, thanks to the change in the WH and consequent reduction in fear of gun-grabbiness.

The "killer bees" are the dominant honey bee in South America now. They are much heartier than normal European bees (that was the point of breeding them), and may well become the dominant honeybee.

The "killer bee" thing was and is pure media hysteria.

You can blame the honey badger. African bees evolved to defend against the honey badger, which likes to get honey and doesn't give a shit about the bee attacks.

Yes-ish, but not commercially.

Bee keepers can not collect honey from an Africanized hive.

1)When an Africanized hive reaches a certain size, they don't allow honey collection.

2)Africanized hives don't "store" honey. If there is honey they produce new bees and eat it ...

However, when they attack Asian honeybees, the bees will swarm the attacker and kill it via body heat.

678 I don't expect we'll be using Taiwan so much in our struggle with Chi-Nah. No need. And not particularly effective. The Chinese populace is, well, not very receptive to those rich bastids in Taiwan (or Hong Kong) -so pushing on that button actually might be helpful to the CCP.

Yeah yeah this is for real. Not a question of non-existent "moderates" in Tehran, or the similar lame and ignorant and disastrously stupid crap we hear about other adversaries.

Chinese nationalism is quite primitive, it has no time for Taiwanese success and independence, and Beijing can tap into it to help itself when, otherwise, it's under tremendous pressure. Taiwan's fine, no need for any bold changes there. I would be astounded if we push that button, it would be stupid and pointless.

Main issue WRT Taiwan is how we could get them to reduce their investment in the mainland. They've been the top investor the whole course of the "opening" in China.

S Korea says troops exchange fire along N Korean border

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- North and South Korean troops exchanged fire along their tense border on Sunday, the South's military said, the first such incident since the rivals took unprecedented steps to lower front-line animosities in late 2018.

Violent confrontations have occasionally occurred along the border, the world's most heavily fortified. While Sunday's incident is a reminder of persistent tensions, it didn't cause any known casualties on either side and is unlikely to escalate, observers say.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff in Seoul said in a statement that North Korean troops fired several bullets at a South Korean guard post inside the border zone. South Korea responded with two rounds after issuing a warning broadcast, it said.

South Korea suffered no casualties, the military said. It's unknown whether North Korea had any. The North's official Korean Central News Agency hasn't reported about the incident.

South Korea said it was trying to contact North Korea via a military hotline to avoid an escalation.

It comes a day after North Korea broadcast images of leader Kim Jong Un reappearing in public after a 20-day absence amid intense speculation about his health.

Kind of like when roller skating. Ha! Haven't done that in many, many years. The old fashioned kind, with skates that have a key, skating down the street or sidewalks with all the cracks. Damn! Haven't thought about that in ages. I wonder if they even make those old time metal skates.

722 During the Revolutionary War the Colonials did invite the Canadian Colonies to join them, but the Canadians were happy with British rule. They didn't have Troubles. The Colonial Army also invaded Canada but were pushed back and didn't try again.

Canada's loss.

723 Dear Sir:
Re: Colonization of Canada

In fact the US tried twice, and failed twice to invade and take over Canada. The first time was during the Revolutionary War in which an invading colonial force was sent back.

Later, during the War of 1812 the US, with the specific intention of taking over Canada, invaded across a broad swath of what is now Ontario and Quebec. Again, the US forces were sent packing. Such battles as the Battle of Queenston Heights, near Niagara Falls, were decisive victories for the Canadian militia/British regulars/aboriginal forces.

That was the last time. Since then the relationship between the two countries has been much more cordial.
