for an AR15'. I wouldn't mind having one, but I'd like to try one in 7.62x39, probably(from listening to son) with a piston upper.
Phelps' opinion of the EPA and enviroweenies wanting to reduce power supplies:
Electricity is civilization. The people who want to limit electrical generation and ban the Edison bulb are enemies of civilization. These people refuse to stop meddling with the most basic of modern necessities — that when you flip the switch in your house, you get light. They want to reach into your living room, and change all the bulbs — and after that, they want to make it so that sometimes it doesn’t even work — so that you can breath .01% better air.
The response to Rep. Waters displaying her whining idiocy(again):
You have no clout. You gave it away. I mean, what are you gonna do? Call him a racist for ignoring you?
Tam also notes
When touring the shuttered factories and idled industrial plants of the heartland to bring hope and change to people whom you would like to vote for you, you shouldn't do it in a foreign-made RV. I cannot believe that this gaffe slipped right by all the 20lb brains on Barry's PR staff.
I can; they think they're the Great Shining Ones who work for The Lightworker and thus can do no wrong.
Tolkien’s Hobbits fought to resist power. Career politicians wallow in it. Too much power makes politicians hollow and disconnected. Lacking anything else, they cling to power until they drop dead. A defeatist mentality of emptiness. If you’re wealthy enough to retire but hold elected office until you die in old age; power has destroyed you.
Conservative Strom Thurmond and liberal Edward Kennedy are egregious examples. One died in office at age 100 after 47 years in office. The other at age 77 after 46 years in office. Virtual opposites in politics; yet they both clung to power until their dying breath.
Some thoughts from Malcolm on the mess in (fG)Britain:
The most amazing thing about the reaction of English MPs to last week’s terrible violence was how surprised they were. For a country whose criminal law is invariably sympathetic to offenders, nearly always harsh on their victims, and unwilling to pay for adequate policing the surprise is that they were surprised.
Two stories hitting English papers during June and July provide a glimpse of current British law in action.
On June 23 around midnight a masked gang broke down the back door of a home in Salford, in northwestern England. The householder, 59, his son and the son’s girl friend called the police and tried to defend the home and themselves. They managed to stab one of the gang who died of his wounds. When the police arrived they arrested the householder, his son and the son’s girlfriend on suspicion of attempted murder.
On July 11, a headline in The Sun read “Shopkeeper, 72, nicked after `stabbing to death robber.’” Mr. Coley’s Manchester flower shop was closed and he was playing dominoes with a friend when two masked men armed with guns broke in. In the struggle that followed, Mr. Coley’s friend was injured but Coley managed to stab one robber, who later died, while the other fled wounded. The Manchester police are holding Mr. Coley for attempted murder.
What cartridge for vampire? From the looks of him I think anything from 9mm to .45 will do just fine.
"You will use ethanol-contaminated fuel, AND YOU WILL LIKE IT!", basically.
Officials at the Renewable Fuels Association, representing the ethanol industry, said ethanol fuels can be safely used in old cars if owners adapt the fuel systems with new parts.
Association spokesman Matt Hartwig said the cost would "be minor in comparison to what (owners) would be willing to spend on the exterior of the car, for example."
Mr. Hatwig: fuck you, and your miserable little leech-on-the-taxpayer association. Never mind your 'adapt your older car' bullshit, what about the small engines this 15% mix will destroy? Or doesn't that matter to you so long as you can keep your subsidies going?
To Principal Dumbass and the local cops: I'll repeat her question, why the hell was this little bastard still running around loose?
The BATFEIEIO* is denying that Newell, McMahon and Voth were promoted; evidence to the contrary.
Yeah, VEEP Biden DID compare tea party people and conservatives to terrorists.
After hearing from the first source, the two POLITICO reporters on the story, Jonathan Allen and John Bresnahan, quickly confirmed Biden’s words with three other sources who were in the same room. They also contacted a fifth source, who confirmed the basic reporting. The original tip came in at about 1 p.m. Aug. 1, and POLITICO spent the next few hours in contact with the vice president’s office, which was aware of what the story was going to say and had been given several hours to respond by the time the story posted at 4 p.m.
“We sought a response from the vice president’s office and after our interaction with Biden’s office, we were confident our story was accurate,” Allen said.
Last, over at Seraphic Secret, two things: first, a bit on Judaism and self-defense.
Second, if you've not seen it before, his experiences during the '92 LA riots, which ended with
“After this is all over,” I vow, “I’m going to buy a pistol.”
Karen says: “How about a shotgun?”
