The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"It was one thing when speakers who were too conservative were being harassed, but when professors who see themselves as good liberals are getting called in front of tribunals for something they said in class, that's not so much fun anymore." Former Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels


Quote II

Forgive me for repeating this story, but it’s a useful one: I have a relative who thinks of himself as a conservative. When I told him eleven years ago that I was coming to work for National Review, which I had been reading since I was a teenager, his response came in the form of this question: “Is that the one with that ol’ boy from New York who talks like a queer?” That’s what a pretty-well-representative septuagenarian Republican voter knew about William F. Buckley Jr. in 2008. That I would voluntarily move to New York City was, to him, incomprehensible: That place is nothing but cooties, including talk-like-a-queer cooties.

There are conservatives, and there are conservatives. We’re the former, I think. Kevin D. Williamson


Once again Williamson displays he has diarrhea of the keyboard.


Quote III

You’d imagine something called “Parents” would celebrate, well, normal parents. But no. Only odd “non-trad-dad” couplings or “non-couplings” seem to make the cover of Parents these days. Especially missing seems to be the fathers of the Caucasian persuasion. Nothing all that unusual about that these days. That’s pretty much how the soft machine pumps out that pink slime percolating in the pit at the politically correct cultural clambake.Gerard Van der Leun"


Quote IV

“Since I wasn’t getting married during the summer in the Hamptons, I wasn’t able to hire an airplane with a banner to go up and down the shoreline. I thought: ‘I own a building. Why don’t I just hang a banner from my own building?’”Harry Macklowe

Ace wrote magnificently earlier today on the "Aunt Becky" situation. Of course "Aunt Becky" loves Hillary, cheaters and liars have to stick together, amirite?


Quite the referral service you have there Mr. Rick Singer.


I'm not really shocked. We haven't been a nation of laws for some time. If you are a leftist, rich or a crazy shithead of the progressive persuasion, laws don't apply.

Its "funny" how the FBI could have such a deep and thorough investigation and the corrupt Obama administration (I'm looking at you Hillary, Huma & Cheryl Mills to name just a few) can skate away. Sorry I digressed.

Life in an illegal massage parlor.

When New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft was busted for allegedly getting a hand job in a Florida massage parlor, it put a national spotlight on the strip-mall spa where he was serviced.

Orchids of Asia was one of an estimated 9,000 illicit massage parlors that anti-trafficking charity Polaris says account for a $2.5 billion industry in the United States. Florida police said the workers at the spas targeted in the six-month sting were trafficking victims, forced to live and eat in the same parlors where they worked, with armed men moving them between locations.

Blonde, attractive and successful.

It's no breeze being a blonde female founder of a blood-testing startup--even if your name isn't Elizabeth Holmes.

Julia Cheek, the founder and chief executive of EverlyWell, is sick of the reference. "I think it's a representation of sexism in our space. There are 15 other companies that have popped up in blood testing and you don't hear anyone comparing Theranos to those male-founded startups," she said.

What would have American life be like had J. Edgar Hoover become the MLB Commish and not the FBI Director all of his life?

What if J. Edgar Hoover had become the baseball commissioner?


According to a note that I read over the weekend, FBI director J. Edgar Hoover declined an offer to become Major League Baseball commissioner in 1951.

He would have replaced Happy Chandler, a man who supported Jackie Robinson crossing the color line, took a tough stand against players who became free agents, and signed with a new pro league in Mexico.

The Hoover note left me with a couple of questions:

First, who would have succeeded him? Better said, who could have replaced him? After all, Director Hoover was there from 1924 until his death in 1972.

Second, what kind of commissioner would he have been?


We obviously don't know, but there is lots of room to speculate and fantasize about both answers.

As for his successor, the appointment would have been made by President Harry Truman, a close friend, according to notes in the Truman Library.

The new candidate would have been confirmed by a conservative U.S. Senate at the time. I wonder if politicians would have used the confirmation process to unload about Mr. Hoover's ways and whether the new director would have been forced to stop all the surveillance. Hoover had files on many Americans he considered subversive.

Over on the baseball diamond, Hoover would have joined the business of baseball in the decade that saw several franchises pack up and leave for greener pastures in Milwaukee (Braves), Kansas City (A's), San Francisco (Giants), and Los Angeles (Dodgers).

Wistful Quote of The Day

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio is a King Size Dick.

In other words, NYC public school kids, after suffering through eight miserable years of horrible inedible lunches thanks to Michelle Obama, will now begin, once again, throwing their vegan breakfasts and lunches in the garbage cans…on Mondays.

Thanks for nothing, Mayor de Blasio.

New York Mayor Bill De Blasio announced Monday that all New York City public schools will have “Meatless Mondays” beginning in the 2019-2020 school year….

I've known this for years. Visually challenged individuals are being ripped off.

Charles Dahan knows from firsthand experience how badly people get ripped off when buying eyeglasses.

He was once one of the leading suppliers of frames to LensCrafters, before the company was purchased by optical behemoth Luxottica. He also built machines that improved the lens-manufacturing process.


In other words, Dahan, 70, knows the eyewear business from start to finish. And he doesn’t like what’s happened.

“There is no competition in the industry, not anymore,” he told me. “Luxottica bought everyone. They set whatever prices they please.”

Happy Birthday Internet
TODAY, 30 YEARS on from my original proposal for an information management system, half the world is online. It’s a moment to celebrate how far we’ve come, but also an opportunity to reflect on how far we have yet to go.

The web has become a public square, a library, a doctor’s office, a shop, a school, a design studio, an office, a cinema, a bank, and so much more. Of course with every new feature, every new website, the divide between those who are online and those who are not increases, making it all the more imperative to make the web available for everyone.

A woman was arrested after stealing an SUV from an Ace Rent-a-Car.

WJXT reports that Gardina McCullough, 23 appeared in court Friday morning on car theft charges, with a bond set at $15,003.

McCullough was arrested after stealing a Toyota RAV4 from an Ace Rent-A-Car.

She was found less than a mile away, hiding at a hotel.

On the scene, McCullough told a local news station, "Demons told me to do it...I didn't take it, demons took it."

Del Hall works at Fifty West Brewing Company in Cincinnati. He says he will only be drinking beer until Easter Sunday, and he's also giving up all food.


"I am nervous, I'm very nervous about it. I've only fasted for 4 days."

So for 46 days, Hall says he will have an assortment of beer for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Hall says he is following the lead of monks in the 1600s, who would fast during the season by a bock beer diet.

30 The irony is that the same people who warn us that the whole point of terrorism was to get America to overreact, thereby radicalizing erstwhile moderates, are essentially making the same mistake in domestic politics. Trump has the first mover advantage. Their entire brand is premised on (over)reacting to him.

47 In the college corruption story Ace linked, they refer to Lori Laughlin as "Aunt Becky". I figured that one out with Google: she was on a show called Full House and she played a character named Aunt Becky.

But the story also contained the comment "all time smoke". What does that mean? I Googled it and got a bunch of links about where I could buy smoking products. Urban Dictionary failed me also.

Here's the full sentence:

"In total, Aunt Becky (all time smoke in my opinion) paid 500k for admission into USC for her two daughters."

67 RE - The recent massage parlor bust in Florida -

Reason has an article that suggests that the "trafficking" angle to the story is largely the invention of government officials (including law enforcement), and there's no real evidence of it. In particular, the article notes that the government is apparently having trouble getting the trafficking "victims" to cooperate with authorities.

https://tinyurl.com/y6cp346p


In short, yes, there was apparently some prostitution taking place. The cops apparently did see surveillance video of Robert Kraft getting a blowjob, among other things. But actual evidence of sex trafficking is apparently rather sparse, and may likely just be hype by the local law enforcement to make the case seem more important than it really is.

Among other things, the article that I linked notes that authorities haven't leveled any trafficking charges against the people involved with the parlor. There are various charges relating to prostitution. But nothing relating to trafficking.

I saw a horrible 20/20 segment about a 15 year old runaway in Florida who ended up in the clutches of a sex traffic. He beat and raped her, kept her locked in a scummy motel room tied to a bed with no clothes on, bought 4-5 men in at a time to rape her, and fed her drugs so she'd be addled and confused all the time. And he told her he'd kill her and her parents if she got away or told police.

She did eventually manage to run away - ran down the street naked - and she reported him. What he did to her was so horrific that the judge sentenced him to life.

Everything you said is right, but ... what he was talking about was the Mexican League. It's actually an interesting story. In the late '40's this ultra-rich Mexican guy started his own major league, and he went hard after big leaguers. Ted Williams met with guy - he talks about it in his autobiography - and said this guy offered him something like three times the money he was making. Williams said it was a lot of money, but something about the whole deal just felt off. He did sign some big names - Sal Maglie, for one. Mickey Owen? A few others, and after the league folded after a couple of years, these guys had stories about grocery bags full of cash, guns, and a lot of other hair-raising stuff about getting out of Mexico.

155 "Hell, I'm so old, I remember when hitchhiking was common. We never gave it a thought as dangerous. "

It got dangerous in the '70's. Two girls I knew went to Florida on spring break and were picked up by a rapist. One of the girls jumped out of his car as it was getting on the expressway and was hospitalized with broken bones and a concussion. The other girl did not jump out of the car, and was raped. The rapist kept telling her "your friend is dead" as he raped her. Then he dropped her off on the shoulder of some road. I guess she was lucky he was "just" a rapist and not a serial killer.

They thought he looked sketchy when he stopped, but didn't want to appear "racist" so they got in. Screw that.

199 Only odd "non-trad-dad" couplings or "non-couplings" seem to make the cover of Parents these days.

I've read that you can't get a young-adult novel published these days without including at least one homosexual relationship in the novel.

It's amazing - the population of the United States that regularly practices homosexuality is only a few percent, yet it's astonishing how pervasive pro-gay propaganda is in this society.

I remember reading at the start of the AIDS epidemic that the New York City Department of Health was surprised that AIDS was spreading more slowly in New York than they expected. They investigated, and discovered that they had been drastically overestimating the number of active male homosexuals in New York City.

200 OK, we used to hitchhike across country a lot when I was in college, talking early '80's. Anyone hear remember the good states and the bad states? The bad states, the cops would bust you. The good states, the cops would wave as they went by. Made the trip from Chicago to New York, or back, in two rides several times.
Also - got picked up by a guy on the way to the hospital to get his wife who just had a baby - gave me a cigar. Got picked up by a guy on the way to see his parole officer. Freakiest ride? A ride by a guy moving for a new job as a pizza parlor organist!!! Freaky, but turned out ok. Gave me an autographed album of his, uh, organ pizza music.
Got picked up in Louisiana by a really nice old couple, who used to live in California. There, they used to play cards with Moe Howard and Larry Fine. Plus, they knew Sirhan Sirhan when he was a kid.

245 @199 I remember reading at the start of the AIDS epidemic that the New York City Department of Health was surprised that AIDS was spreading more slowly in New York than they expected. They investigated, and discovered that they had been drastically overestimating the number of active male homosexuals in New York City.
--------------

I remember once reading that the estimates from back then were based on studies that basically went to areas that had higher than normal percentages of homosexuals, and polling people about their sexual practices. The percentages from those surveys were then assumed to apply across the country.

Oh no, I'm a guy. Listen, I'm sorry to be sexist, but at that time, when me and my buddies were doing it, it was commonly thought to be dangerous beyond sense for a girl or girls to do it. A couple of guys who picked us up even said, well, weird things about girls hitchin'. I think if any of our girl friends would have tried it, we'd have physically restrained them.

but an interesting series of movies that preceded the hallmark mystery women (florist, book dealer, baker, etc.) was the "jane doe" mysteries starring lea thompson (of back to the future") from about 10 years ago. she plays a housewife who secretly is a c.i.a. type agent. they are very well done, i think. catch them if they come around.

Luxottica absolutely destroyed Ray Ban sunglasses. Went to replace a set of 62mm Outdoorsman IIs, amber driver's lens. Only to discover that they were no longer made.

Worse still, handling the Luxottica lineup, it was quite obvious that Precision Engineering and Quality Control weren't exactly touchtone words in the Optical Empire.

So, for now I've got the $19.95 CVS specials.

The classic Baush & Lomb Ray Bans that I want are sometimes available on eBay. For well above $300, on a cheap day.

The other thing that seems to trip up 75% of Deatline murderers is buying shit at Walmart. It's always something like, well we found a receipt for a shovel and rope from WalMart Store 1728 and then we went to Store 1728 and saw video footage of the guy buying the shovel and rope. And turns out the rope matches that which the victim was bound with.

And I'm like dude you are too stupid to be in the general population. You need to be locked up for life on principal alone.
Posted by: Lurking Lurker at March 12, 2019 10:56 PM (eZuvF)

Yep. I saw one recently where the guy carefully plotted out the murder of his estranged wife, cleaned up everything - and left the receipt for the Walmart where he bought all his shit on the floor of his car.

The other "Dateline" standard is when they pretend to "find" the body of their spouse and call 911 and end up giving the cops information that incriminates them. Like when they say "Burglars broke in and stabbed my wife and stole stuff!" Then the cops show up and find the place is neat and there are money and valuables in plain sight that weren't stolen.

The series, "The Closer" on TNT had an episode where the serial killer (the "I-10 Killer") drove an 18-wheeler between Texas' Gulf Coast and LA and murdered young women along the route over the course of several years.

"Why do they always have three names?" asked the Texas Ranger who helped bring in Jessie Ray Whomever during the episode.

290 Drudge blurb sez -- Gavin Newsome to stop death penalty in CA

Might as well. They haven't had an execution since 2006, and a grand total of 13 since the death penalty was reinstated in 1972 or 73. And yet

California rejected two initiatives to repeal the death penalty by popular vote in 2012 and 2016, and it adopted in 2016 another proposal to expedite its appeal process.

Gavin overrules CA voters like a Hawaiian judge.

Wouldn't it be easy to track this down. Trucks all have GPS and shit now don't they? So if hooker goes missing at Truck Stop X in Kansas and the body is found in Florida 24 hours later, you can narrow down the truckers who were at the truck stop and in FL at those times.

297 Have you guys heard that, supposedly, there are a handful of serial killers doing their thing today. The problem is, they think they are cross-country truck drivers. The victims are hookers at rest stops. But if you have a murder at a truck stop in, ?, Nebraska, you find the body 24 hours later, a trucker could be practically anywhere in the country. My understanding is this is a real thing.

I don't mean the lack of a database, but the idiots in Colorado who thought it would be just fine to let the scumbag stroll into the Law Library at the prison with no cuffs on, nobody guarding him and an open window in the room. Oops, Bundy's gone!

Some time after we got home this evening, I smelled something perfume-y on my hands. Potent & icky for my tastes. I hadn't touched anyone or anything unusual.

Picked up from a checker at the weird German grocery store, perhaps? No, Milady did the sacking. I checked her hands for the scent to be sure. Hmm.

SO, I just went and poured myself a second little drink from the bottle milady purchased at our local adult beverage emporium. And that's when it hit me.

Yes, the bottle smelled perfume-y. Milady hadn't touched it because it had been sacked by Tiffany.

Tone it down, Tiff!

That's what that one serial killer trucker did in WA, he killed then transported the body far away from the murder site.

And OK 300 of them. Then you look at the next murder and see if any of those 300 match the other 300. And so on.

There have been a few truck driver serial killers, Keith Jesperson being one that comes to mind. Typically more frequent with independent truckers and not company truckers (whose entire life behind the wheel is poked, prodded and downloaded). Truckers have a history of picking up hitchhikers, now with the added easy prey of hookers at truck stops, too. So, yeah, truck driver serial killers are real although I would wager it's gotten tougher with all the security on the highways, which is probably why they've been catching more than a few truck driver serial killers of late.

Thanks for the AO tip. Might consider a pair for backup purposes, but they don't have much variety in their frames, and those all look to be smaller sized options, at that. Oh, and they're polycarbonate, vs. the classic B&L glass lenses.

Specs for my specs.

62mm Outdoorsman II frames w/ cable temples. Black finish.

Ray Ban "Driver's" lenses. Deep amber lens, with gradient mirror tint.

Those things fit like they're tailored to me, and the cable temples are very motorcycle helmet friendly.

The larger lenses provide more peripheral vision coverage and more wind and debris protection out on the road.

Search those out on eBay, and belt in for a helluva case of sticker shock!

365 338: It takes some gall to hire a firm to create fake scores for your kid so that he or she can essentially steal a seat from some other, much more deserving applicant.
Legacy applicants whose parents buy them a seat through donation to a school are a problem too. But screw these people. Some kind of example has to be made that the laws apply to those who would consider themselves our "betters."

408 Wouldn't it be easy to track this down. Trucks all have GPS and shit now don't they? So if hooker goes missing at Truck Stop X in Kansas and the body is found in Florida 24 hours later, you can narrow down the truckers who were at the truck stop and in FL at those times.
Posted by: Lurking Lurker at March 12, 2019 11:20 PM (eZuvF)

That could narrow it down to hundreds, maybe a thousand or more. There are a lot of trucks on the road, running similar routes.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at March 13, 2019 12:04 AM (nPGq2)

409 All true. And then, truck stops are in the country. What if you haul the body 200 yards from the parking lot. If I hauled a body 200 yards from a truck stop parking lot outside Omaha, that no one was looking for, how long until it's found? And if it's a week - how many truckers came through in the last week?


Posted by: Vertov at March 12, 2019 11:38 PM


On a related note, there was at least one trucker serial killer. Randy Greenawalt who was in the Tison prison breakout and murder spree. Greenawalt picked truckers sleeping in their cabs, drew an X outside where the driver's head would be and shot them through the truck. Apparently when asked why truckers?... he replied, "Well, nobody else is killing truckers. Why not?"

Regarding that"Holy Shit Your 30" thing: HOW THE FUCK DOES SOMEONE NOT KNOW THAT IT SHOULD BE "YOU'RE"?

Here's an idea, America: Why not take a weekend to sit down and learn what the fuck an apostrophe is for? Learn it and apply to your life from that day forward.

With either a .22 firing sub-sonic, or your pellet gun, you can bag a song-dog, but you've got to be quick and you've got to be accurate, above all.

If the dog is in profile to you, imagine a line between the eye and the opening of the ear, aim halfway along that line, and fire.

If it's looking straight at you, imagine that line from the upper eyelid to the upper eyelid. Bisect the line, and fire.

You need to practice till hitting a dime sized target at forty yards is routine.

A nickel will do, mostly.

If you're only reliably hitting a quarter, you're not quite ready, yet.

If you have an accurate rifle, buy an even MORE accurate SCOPE.

Oh, and .22s are very persnickety about ammo selection. Keep trying brands and weights, till you find one that'll hit those dimes, every time.

I had a 75 foot tree fall and knocked down a fence behind my guest house. The coyotes were sneaking in over the fallen fence behind the shrubs. I've had the tree removed and the fence fixed.
There was a red fox out there today in the grapes, I didn't get a shot but I scared him away.

On a brighter note, former Deputy Commissioner McCabe, would probably be in prison for lying to the FBI about something or another.

514 Spent 2 months looking for eyeglass frames that would fit my prodigious noggin and not look like safety goggles.

Whether or not Luxottica is to blame, the industry has gone mostly to one-style-one-size. That holds for national chains, mom-and-pop shops, designer shops, and online retailers. You find what fits and settle for the style.

Shuron USA did me right. Shuron probably made your grandparents' eyeglass frames, back when your grandparents chose the style and the optician ordered the size. Shuron is still in business; they're not getting much love from eyeglass shops, but they sell online.
Since I wasn't getting any cooperation from the local eyeglass shops and lens grinders in Phoenix in getting a frame that would fit in the style I wanted (round wire frames, is that so difficult???) I gave Shuron a call.

Shuron let me order 5 different sizes to try, charged the price of 1 frame as a deposit, and gave me 2 weeks to pick the one size out of the 5 that fit best and to return the other 4 by USPS.
Worked great. Pleased with the style and quality of the frames; better than I had ordered (and returned) from Zenni and WarbyParker, better than the chain shops, better than the local mom-and-pop shops (which, at least in the Phoenix area, don't try very hard).
Had a grinder in Scottsdale make the progressive bifocal lenses. Ordering those online had been a big mistake (although I got my money back).

You can do this, with a highly accurate .22 bolt action rifle.

Fact is, I'd suggest a good single-shot rifle, straight up.

Why?

You've got to develop that "first shot" standard of ultimate accuracy, if you're going to succeed at all.

I know coyotes and foxes. I've bagged my share, this isn't idle talk.

You've got to become AWESOME with only ONE shot. Don't count on follow up shots to do the job.

If you fell the dog with your first shot, you'll have time to reload for the coup de grace.

If you miss with your first shot, doing the mag-dump from the 10/22 really ain't gonna get 'er done, anyway.

Understood. But the Methodist Church reaffirmed God's word.

In the individual member churches, that's a mandate for the Pastors to reinforce what Scripture has to say on the subject.

I'd say a sermon on Romans 1:28-32 would be a good place to begin.

Posted by: LASue at March 13, 2019 12:45 AM (XROPS)


Yep, Bundy was into ploys to lure his victims into his trap, or VW Bug in his case. He used a fake cast 'needing help', a fake badge as 'the police needs her help', etc. I think the hunt, the setting the trap and springing the trap were all a part of the sexual nature of his crimes. The necrophilia was just a bonus.

From my reading about Bundy, only one victim ever got out of his clutches, leaping out of the Bug with a handcuff still attached to her wrist.

Of all the young adult women Bundy killed, he was executed for assaulting and murdering 12-year-old Kimberly Leatch.

Here. Transform your 10/22 into a rig that'll shot the heart out of an aspirin tablet at 25 yards, every time.

Buy a great barrel. Buy a great trigger.

Then top it with a really nice scope. Don't buy a typical ".22" scope for it.

Serious glass, from Leupold, Vortex, Nikon, or better.

I think petite syrah was the first varietal commercially produced in CA. Up in Livermore, or the Sierra foothills. I like it - it's really unlike most any other red. And it *is* almost black in color. Darkest red wine there is. Don't spill it on a good shirt.

You're welcome, and I'm honored to help.

There is another "trick" that works here, too.

Buy a half dozen good .22 rifles. Cheap ones, bolt or semi-auto, but with sterling reputations as to accuracy / dollar ratios.

Top 'em with Nikon or Vortex scopes, in the $125 dollar range. Good enough, but not "awesome".

DILIGENTLY bench-test each rifle with various ammo, at 15, 25 and 50 yards.

Note carefully, the ammo that each individual rifle shoots the best, and buy a 500 rd brick of the same, for each.

Place those rifles near the entrance doors of EVERY where you go in and out of, routinely.

Odds are, when you need to "grab a rifle" one of those will be there.

They'll all have identical scopes.

You'll have zeroed each rifle & scope to the same Point of Impact, vs. Point of Aim.

Regardless of which rig you grab, it should shoot the same, perform the same, kill the same.

No need to go "running around" looking for your rifle.

If, that is, "your rifle" is sitting there, damn near everywhere you turn.

Your winery friends, as does Rhomboid, will know from the question itself, that I am an Olde Farte.

Still.

I want some Burgandy again, before I die.

It was the very definition of "Red Wine", in it's time.

605 Jim, I recall the term and the product (generally - was more of a beer guy as a young'in), and I have to think it was some sort of pinot noir. Since that is what red wine from Burgundy (Bourgogne - sp?) generally is. But I don't know.


Have you tried getting an everyday (cheap) pinot to see if that's what you're looking for?


I'm sure there is a good wine store somewhere in your AO. Just find someone there (maybe of the correct "vintage"!), they'll probably actually know, and be able to help.


These days there's so many kinds of wine, in so many styles, usually at such accessible prices, that I think you should be able to find one (or more) that you like.

607 Surreal day. Water Polo family. In competition for many many years. Vavic was worshipped as a demigod by many. Not by our family though. But we knew he was big and very arrogant. Our sons gained college admission based on their academic excellence. Their many years of wp and swimming and state championships were part of what made them 'well rounded' for college admissions. Scored very high on their act on the first try. They did study and put effort into preparing for the standardized tests. We wouldn't have had the money to buy admission favors anyhow. We also were too moral and brainy to ever go that low. We suspected money exchanging hands under the table but had no idea to what extent. My my how the mighty have fallen. Stunned.

611 There is another "trick" that works here, too.

Buy a half dozen good .22 rifles. Cheap ones, bolt or semi-auto, but with sterling reputations as to accuracy / dollar ratios.

Top 'em with Nikon or Vortex scopes, in the $125 dollar range. Good enough, but not "awesome".

DILIGENTLY bench-test each rifle with various ammo, at 15, 25 and 50 yards.

Note carefully, the ammo that each individual rifle shoots the best, and buy a 500 rd brick of the same, for each.

Place those rifles near the entrance doors of EVERY where you go in and out of, routinely.

Odds are, when you need to "grab a rifle" one of those will be there.

They'll all have identical scopes.

You'll have zeroed each rifle & scope to the same Point of Impact, vs. Point of Aim.

Regardless of which rig you grab, it should shoot the same, perform the same, kill the same.

No need to go "running around" looking for your rifle.

If, that is, "your rifle" is sitting there, damn near everywhere you turn.

.
Or . . . you could just bury a few sticks of dynamite every couple square yards on your property and leave detonators at every door and window.

Point is.

Zac Brown's two sentence "America is the Greatest Country on Earth and Forever", declaration in the middle of "Country Fried", reminded me of YOU, sir.

I mean that.

I thought of you as the words were being pronounced through the more than ample amplifiers.

Yeah. I agree. Fan belts get thrown when something else is wrong. Maybe they installed a heavy-duty alternator in place of the standard one, and got it a little out of line, and there wasn't time to make it right. Another thing that throw belts is something like a rubber flap under the radiator, or an overflow hose dangling down, which, at speed, blows back, gets snagged in the belt, and derails it. Come to a stop, and the errant part is back where it belongs. I worked on a car that had an electrical short of that nature. Tricky to find.

Reminds of the time, many years ago, my daily driver was a VW dune buggy. So I was going down this long steep hill, Columbia Street in Kamloops, B.C., which was then the Trans Canada highway (since built a bypass). Hit the brakes to slow down for the light at the bottom, and the pedal went to the floor with a band. Luckily, the light went green with a left turn arrow, so I hauled on the hand brake, and geared down, and made it around the corner, and came to a safe stop. Big puddle of brake fluid on the left rear wheel. So I hammered the brake line flat, bought a can of brake fluid, filled it up, and I had brakes on three wheels again. When I finally got the drum off, I found the cast iron wheel cylinder had split in half and burst. Never saw that before or since.

My pick for best of the 80's in pop? Scoff allyou want... but "Faith" by George Michael comes close. Pure gold and sheer perfection in an 80's 45 rpm. Put blues, country, rock, pop, dance and rockabilly in a blender and get a kick arse single that bucked the trends in the 80's.

According to the leaked Congressional hearing testimony of fbi agent lisa page, they were going to recommend charges on hillary for gross negligence for her emails but lynch told them not to do it.


I don't know whether to believe that or not, but at the point of her testimony she had nothing left to lose, so maybe she was telling the truth.

I will never let the letting of Hillz go.
What really kills me is that everyone complains about FBI/DOJ changing the requirement of the Espionage Act from "gross negligence" to intent.
Yes, absurd, as it's absurd that "extreme carelessness" does not, in fact, equal "gross negligence."
But the real kicker is that her actions, to bring classified material outside its lawful, protected space was ABSOLUTELY AND DEMONSTRABLY INTENTIONAL.

Negligent would be "Oh my God I never realized that you were using a private server Mr. IT Guy." Intentional is: Hey lets hire IT guys at great time and expense to make sure that my emails are off the government grid.

Juries should nullify every verdict brought by the Feds and return a note to the Judge saying: If Hillary got off we can't convict this guy. Fuck you. War."

759 Oddly enough, on our NextDoor, Social Media site is a thread about a speaker lecturing on Global Warming.

The unusual part is the 27 comments posted by residents of the area.

ALL of them are referring to the over-reach in claims, and the altering of global temperature readings to support a non scientific position that the world is being destroyed by human activity, and that we should all live in mud huts to save the planet.

Not a single comment supporting Glowball Worming.

Because they're too ignorant to know what socialism and communism will bring. Or they just don't fvcking care. They're miserable and if everyone else is miserable so much the better.

The other little publicized wrinkle in all of this is that in order for her server set-up to work, forwarding and synochonization would have had to be implemented from within the governmental servers.
