A proper response to

a 'I am liberal because I CARE!!" poet.

So, Mr. Holder, when do you charge the black racists? Or are they immune for some reason?

This weekend is the big Wanenmacher Gun Show in Tulsa; alas, after the journey to Tacoma and back, plus work conflict, did not go.
Maybe in the fall

Beer for the Fallen

I hadn't heard of this group before.
Which brought to mind, after reading the Last Six Seconds the other day, it reminded me of something, so I dug out the book, and the particular passage:
Glasebrook hit with the point of his shoulder as if the grove was a tackling dummy. Mud sprayed as his cleats bit and thrust him through the resistance. Farrell saw the flicker of the precursor charges dispersing the grenade fuel across the interior.

The grenades with off with a huge red flash. The reeds and everything within them disintegrated. The shock wave knocked won people fifty feet away and flung Art Farrell backward from his perch.

If there was a heaven, Glasebrook had just blown his way through the door.
You know why we are affected so by words like this? Because there really are people like that.

Aside from the general disgust with Afghans,

with son now on the ground there you can imagine how effing thrilled I am to read this:
US military commanders in Afghanistan have assigned “guardian angels” to watch over troops as they sleep, among a series of other increased security measures, in the wake of rogue Afghan soldiers targeting Nato forces.

The added protections are part of a directive issued in recent weeks by Gen John Allen, the top US commander in Afghanistan, to guard against insider threats, according to a senior military official.
'Insider threats'=backstabbing murdering pieces of crap.
Remember Obama and his "Afghanistan is The War We Must Win!" crap? He's giving aid and comfort to the enemy(what else would you call negotiating with the Taliban?), crapping on the troops, and it's deteriorated to this point.

Hershey Medical Center, social worker and the local police:

depending on which one you're speaking of at the moment, some should be sued for everything they've got, some should be fired and then tarred and feathered(or given 20 lashes in the town square), and some should, at the LEAST, be taken off street duty while they get some training as to their damned jobs.

SO the feds don't want to deal with criminals in the NBP,

but the local authorities will:
Hashim Nzinga, a New Black Panther Party leader who gained attention when he announced a bounty on the shooter in the highly publicized Trayvon Martin case, has been arrested, the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office said.

Nzinga, 49, was arrested for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, according to a release sent by sheriff's office spokesman Adrion Bell.

Let us never forget the crap that came out of Pelosi's(NSD-CA) mouth

when asked "What's in the Obamacare bill?"

Somebody I know, when it became obvious that Obamacare is in trouble, said "No problem, we'll just expand Medicare to cover everyone, that's constitutional!" No consideration at all for "SHOULD this be done?", or "Does everyone else want this?"; oh no, the progressives have decided we don't have actual, proper health care unless the clowns like Pelosi and Rangel are in control of it..l.

A very nice response to the 'sex traitor', 'race traitor', 'whateverthefuck traitor' bullshit progressives and open communists like to throw at people. Including
The essential failure of making individuals go through groups with which they share a characteristic, is that ultimately groups are too amorphous for the representative to represent anything but himself. The last irreducible group is one. Which is why our system establishes rights of the individual and equality under the law. ANYTHING else, no matter how “progressive” it sounds is a shambling step back into the mists of tribalism and irrational group think.

ABC lies, flatly and openly; anybody really surprised?
It should also be noted that Benjamin Crump, the Martin family lawyer, either went along with the lie or didn't bother to find out if the ABC report, ah, 'missed' anything let's say, before opening his mouth.

Let's also note this piece of crap from ABC:
ABC News outed the 13 year-old minor who witnessed the Trayvon Martin killing. The minor said that Martin was on top of Zimmerman before the shooting.
So: do we class this as 'reporting while incredibly stupid', or 'trying to get this witness killed'?

Another set of Officer Harless types, this time at Coral Springs PD:
The audiotape depicts a starkly different scene from what officers Nicole Stasnek and Derek Fernandes declared in their official reports and told the Linkcourt under oath.

Here's how The Herald describes the two versions:

The recording catches Stasnek cursing out Mait (although the officer later denied it), giving no advance warning that Mait was about to be cuffed for resisting arrest (although the officer testified that she had done so three times), and later hashing out a plan with her fellow officer to make sure their stories jibed (they did).

Later in the recording, while Mait is heard sobbing in the background, the officers are recorded discussing what had happened:

Fernandes: "I didn't hear anything you said. I was in the back of the car."

Stasnek: "I did drop the F-bomb."

Fernandes, laughing: "I didn't hear that. In my [internal affairs] statement, I didn't hear that. ... Don't worry, I will put everything that I witness before on everything she said."
Fire them. And prosecute them for lying on sworn documents.

Unless they stop dicking around and start actually filing charges on people who lied under oath and refused to obey subpoenas, 'urging the White house to make this guy available' is going to accomplish squat. Except giving the White House & Co. more time to hide things.

That's about all the news I can take for today.

'Last six seconds': I first read this a year or so back; if you haven't,

you need to read it; if you've read it before, read it again.

I don't know if I tend to tear up because of what these men are, because of how short most fall from such, or both.

Among the reasons I despise most politicians

is crap like this:
Rep. Conyers cited the “Good and Welfare Clause” as the source of Congress’s authority [there is no such clause].
Rep. Stark responded, “the federal government can do most anything in this country.”
Rep. Clyburn replied, “There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the federal government has anything to do with most of the stuff we do. How about [you] show me where in the Constitution it prohibits the federal government from doing this?”
Rep. Hare said “I don’t worry about the Constitution on this, to be honest [...] It doesn’t matter to me.” When asked, “Where in the Constitution does it give you the authority …?” He replied, “I don’t know.”
Let's see, we have
Dereliction of duty,
Miserable effing politician in general
and that's not all of it.

And we're supposed to TRUST these dirtbags?

So, while our noble Justice Department is ignoring NBP lawbreaking

and incitement to murder in Florida, they're also losing cases like this.

More on the subject from the time of the arrests, also on the 'evil right-wing militia' scare. Which, surprise surprise! had the SPLC right in the middle of it.

So the DoJ is playing games with the New Black Panthers again

to let some of them get away with felonies: people with violent and/or drug-related felonies in possession of firearms. You know, the kind of things ATF and FBI would be putting melanin-challenged people in a cell for.

And further reason why Holder should be impeached, from the end of the article:
In my book Injustice, I reveal that Eric Holder has been carrying around a clipping in his wallet since 1971 that says black people “have a common cause that requires attending to.” Holder described what the clipping means to him: “It really says that … I am not the tall U.S. attorney, I am not the thin United States Attorney. I am the black United States attorney. And he was saying that no matter how successful you are, there’s a common cause that bonds the black United States attorney with the black criminal.”
Considering the number of people dead due to actions Holder is connected to, the common cause that bonds Holder is being a felon who belongs in a cell.

So the TSA wants to censor people who say bad things

about them, too; isn't that wonderful?

When you add 'Created by the UN' to 'We want immunity

before we do anything', makes you wonder just what the hell they plan to do, doesn't it?
But before it is fully operational, the GCF's creators -- 194 countries that belong to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) -- want it to be immune from legal challenges and lawsuits, not to mention outside inspections, much like the United Nations itself cannot be affected by decisions rendered by a sovereign nation's government or judicial system.

If anybody calls, that frog on the phone

is me. Bleah. I'm just glad it's not cold outside, that would make this truly miserable.

Just a couple of things:
First, the other night I said the EffingBI damn well should be part of the Gunwalker investigation, should have been officially for a long time. Well, to reinforce part of why:
Grassley first revealed in September 2011 the FBI, knew, but failed to tell the ATF, it’s informants were part of the gun trafficking ring. Then in February, Grassley called them “the big fish” ATF had been looking for the entire time.

Both the FBI and DEA know the Miramontes brothers’ role and identity, but declined to tell the ATF during a “deconfliction” meeting Dec. 15, 2009. Nor did either agency speak up at any of the joint meetings all three agencies attended of the Southwest Border Initiative. The DEA and ATF’s Group 7 shared the same floor of the same building and the same ‘wire room’ to listen to wiretaps of suspects.

Eventually and under pressure, the FBI invited top ATF officials to a classified briefing in El Paso in the late summer of 2010 and described the Eduardo and Jesus Miramontes as "a national security assets". The two men were "off limits, untouchable and indictable" said a source familiar with the briefing.
He also notes this from Sipsey:
Is it becoming clearer? Black operations are compartmentalized. The only thing that is required is the ability to deflect interest from other agencies and supervisors within a given agency who might be meddlesome. "National security" goes a long way. What is also required are back-channel means of communication and control. Can you say from "old friends" like the State Department's Kevin O'Reilly serving on the National Security Council and "Gunwalker Bill" Newell in Phoenix? I knew you could. And remember the one thing in Phoenix which would be required would be someone in control who could issue the proper orders and put them in a nice legal-looking frame -- Janet Napolitano's lickspittle, anti-gun zealot Dennis K. Burke. Personnel is policy.

And on the crime cartels the DoJ doesn't want to mess with front,

This WOULD be big news, if we had actual reporters

in the major media(as opposed to 'journalists' who follow the template no matter what, even when it means passing up a big story).
The boy raised his hand, eager to answer the question. “What would you know about it?” exclaimed the teacher dismissively. “You’re not our race.”

This was not dialogue from a Hollywood movie. According to a woman named Melissa Coon, it was what a teacher at East High School in Kansas City told her 13-year-old son, Allen, when he attempted to answer a question during Black History Month. Coon identifies that teacher as Mrs. Karla Dorsey, who is black; Allen is white.

As has already been reported, Allen was a victim of a vicious racial attack last week in which two older black teens doused him with gasoline and set him alight, saying “This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy.” Not surprisingly, Coon has pulled her son out of East High and, concerned about further racial violence, intends to leave the K.C. area
Read it all; if you have kids it'll be enough to make you at least consider homeschooling. Or hanging around the school for a while making sure of what the teachers are saying and doing. For that matter, sounds like the Kansas City PD needs a serious housecleaning, too:
And Indifference 101seems to be a course offering at East High, too. Melissa Coon had been complaining to the school’s administration about her son’s harassment repeatedly – only to be ignored and stonewalled – repeatedly. At one point an administrator told her that her son could only have a transfer to another district school but said that Allen would have “more problems there” and that he should stay at more “racially diverse” East High (which has no more than 20 white students). At another, a vice Principal Coon identifies as Ms. Jessica Bassett denied, while shaking and rubbing her hands together nervously,(the bitch OUGHT to be nervous; this is an attempted murder she's complicit in, not to mention the racist bullshit by teachers) ever having heard about Allen’s problems even though they had been brought to her attention on at least five occasions.
And Coon’s experience with the local police hasn’t been much better. Listening to her testimony I got the feeling that K.C. law enforcement didn’t want the arrest and prosecution of two black youths on a hate-crime charge, possibly for fear of the “powder keg.” Perhaps this is a job for the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division. Oh, yeah, Eric Holder.
And the NYEffingTimes, desperate to maintain the preferred storyline, referred to the shooter in Florida as a 'white hispanic'; guess how many times they've done that before?
Speaking of which, thoughts from Correia, including
Also while on the topic of the law pertaining to shooting people, this has absolutely nothing to do with Florida’s Castle Doctrine, and as soon as you hear somebody spout off about that like they have a clue, you can safely file them in the idiot bin. That law doesn’t even come into play here, and anybody who thinks it does, probably doesn’t know jack about self defense law or they’ve got an agenda and they’re milking this. As a rule of thumb, if you don’t know anything about a topic, you probably shouldn’t try to sound smart about it by repeating anything you heard on the news, because they’re usually wrong, and people who know what they’re talking about will just think you’re an imbecile.

But the most important thing I take from all of this, the race baiting assholes out there need to shut the hell up.

Ah, so this is what's behind(as an excuse) Holder & Co.

saying "We don't want to obey your subpoena, so we won't."
Citizen journalist Mike Vanderboegh, who first broke the Fast and Furious scandal story in December 2010, is reporting this afternoon that a source inside the Justice Department has leaked a series of documents to Congressional officials who are investigating the scandal.

The leak would be a major break in the case and would fuel an escalation in the investigation into the scandal in which the Obama Administration placed U.S. guns directly into the hands of Mexican criminals in order to make a case for new gun control laws.

According to William Lajeunesse at Fox News, the investigation into Fast and Furious now includes the FBI.
Well, it's about damned time.
Sounds like someone either decided they wanted no part of ignoring the subpoena, or was generally so sick of the bullshit that he sent some stuff out.

The battery is dead;

long live, etc.

Son's truck needed cleaning out after the trip, so the day after I got home backed it up a bit, opened all the doors and blew out the dog hair, picked up the trash, etc. Then needed to pull forward a bit to close one door.

Barely turned over.

Charged it, got it started and moved, put the battery tender on it and left it till showed full charge. Two days later, the sucker wouldn't start it again.

Ah well, it waited until it was safely parked here before it gave up the ghost, and I'm thankful

Some of what I missed out on



The Acu'rzr tool

After reading about this setup on Rimfire Central in the past, and then getting input from Gerry on it, I decided to get one. Mind you, if I’d had any idea of the complications and extra expenses that would crop up in the trip to Tacoma, I wouldn’t have.

Hindsight is wonderful, isn’t it?

Anyway, with the delay involved in them being pretty much made as ordered, I ordered it well before that mess, and got it well after. So:
This device can be used with .22LR cartridges(there is a version for .22 Short) to true-up bullets that are out-of-round, it can upset them to fit the chamber cut in the body to give an exact diameter, and it can either create or enlarge an already-existing hollowpoint in the bullet. This particular one is a standard, one side is cut for .223” and the other for .224”.

Comes with three punches:
the first produces a wide, dished nose on the bullet(‘cupped point’).
The second will either create a hollowpoint or widen and deepen an existing one(‘Nastinose’).
The third, used after the wide, produces a deep hollowpoint with a post in the center; looks a lot like a Federal Hydra-Shok bullet(‘Scorp’n’).*
Thinking about it, I saw a box of newer Eley match ammo a while back, and their 'new' bullet design looked a lot like this, just with a very short post in the center of a flat nose. Hmmm.....

Process is simple: to just true bullets that may be out-of-round, insert them into the appropriate chamber; if thumb pressure won’t get it in all the way, set the base on an appropriate surface(wood or plastic, NOT metal) and press the die down, or give it a light tap with a rawhide or plastic mallet. To upset the bullet to fit the chamber(and hopefully your bore) take the wide, round punch, insert in the die and give it a tap or two; doesn’t take much. It will give the nose a dished-in shape as it upsets the bullet to fit. To create or enlarge an existing hollow, take the pointed punch and tap it. For the post, use the cupped-point punch first, then the Scorp’n.

Here’s four Federal 36-grain bulk-pack HP bullets, using he Nastinose to slightly deepen & enlarge the hollow, greatly enlarge and deepen, the cupped-point to widen it ‘WAY out, and the Scorp’n alone.

First impressions:
The parts are well-made and nicely finished, each end of the die is stamped with the size it’s chambered for.
It’s easy to use. One concern I've read is the idea of whacking on the bullet of a rimfire cartridge is nervous-making, and I understand why. But, each end of the die is cut in so that when you have it flat on the surface and the cartridge base is flat, there's no contact between die and rim; so long as you have the suitable surface with NOTHING protruding it shouldn't be a problem. Also, you don't have to take big swings, just light taps will do it. And use a rawhide or plastic mallet; a metal one will ding up the punch heads in short order.

One thing that surprised me(probably shouldn’t have) was the amount of variation in roundness and/or diameter in stuff out of one box. A few slipped into the .223 chamber with virtually no pressure, a few required setting the base on my plastic piece and pushing(a few pushing fairly hard), and various in-between. Most of the Champion ammo fitted snugly**, a few downright tight; most of the plated stuff snug, a couple pretty tight and a couple just dropped in. As I have time(and get over the whatever I seem to have picked up) I’m going to get five or ten of every brand and type .22lr I have and try them for size, just to get an idea of variations.

And I’m going to need a lot more milk jugs. I was already collecting them for some other ammo testing, now I’m going to need a bunch just for the .22s I’m going to run through this. For instance, in my last testing I found the Federal bulk-pack HP penetrated two full jugs and stuck in the 2x4 across the back of the box; I want to try the same ammo/rifle combo with the enlarged HP, the dished nose and the Skorp’n nose and see if they penetrate less and expand more. Also want to try a couple of other brands, see how well dishing/HPointing and Skorp’ning the bullets changes their reaction. For accuracy, I’m going to take a scoped rifle and a solid rest and shoot groups with ammo in original state and modified to see if/what change in groups. Which is going to involve running some into the .223 side and another set into the .224. Oh, the drudgery...

I ran some of these two types through the .223 side and tried them for chambering in my K-22 and AR15-22; slipped right in. In the instructions he does note that in some firearms expanding the bullet can cause it to get quite tight, enough so that you should not use try to force them in; any that are too tight, get rid of.

The accuracy testing will have to wait 'till I can get to the outdoor range; the expansion/penetration until I get get to another spot where nobody minds you blowing up jugs as long as you clean up afterward. Ah well, I'll have time to get the ammo ready. And get more jugs.

Oh, if you look over his site, you'll see he makes a number of tools for working with ammo. I also have to note he doesn't answer e-mails about orders. Mine, at least.

*The stuff in the pictures is Federal Champion for the lead and Federal 36-grain HP bulk-pack for the plated; no particular reason, they were handiest when I started fooling with this.

**In the past I’ve gotten quite good accuracy from the Champion ammo; apparently it tends toward the slightly-large diameter.

Here's a thought: they catch a prosecutor having done this

they disbar him, and prosecute whenever possible; start putting the crooked ones in jail and it'll get the attention of the others.
And no, there is NO excuse for prosecutors and police putting someone they know is innocent of the crime in prison just because they can.
And make the disbarment permanent.

And Obama's such a genius it only took him how long to figure out that North Korea sucks?


Well, if you were an honest agent working at ATF, would you trust the bastards? I sure as hell wouldn't.

Got something I'm working on; may not get it up tonight. On the other hand, with this throat I'm not going out talking or singing, so we'll see.

Good way of putting it: we're just another variety

of geek.

By the way, 'indigo kids'? Really?

And yeah, if Holder & Co. had any integrity, and actually believed in that Constitution thing they swore an oath to uphold*, they'd be investigating those clowns. But they'd also have dealt with that voter intimidation crap, and not started smuggling guns to Mexico for political reasons, and...

Whoops; the approves storyline is fraying, badly:
Lastly, note that the Police Report from the night of the shooting - which took its info from his two-year-old ID - listed him as 6-0, but the Trayvon who was shot was was in fact a six-foot-two and 180+ pounds football player - not the innocent little boy being plastered all over!
among other things.

Translation: "The tech is easy; it's making the peasants, er, commoners, ah, serfspeople do what we've decided is necessary that's hard."
If I had it to do over, I’d approach the issue planning differently, my fellow editors permitting. I would scale back on the nuclear fusion and clean coal, instead devoting at least half of the available space for feature articles on psychology, sociology, economics and political science. Since doing that issue, I’ve come to the conclusion that the technical details are the easy part. It’s the social engineering that’s the killer. Moon shots and Manhattan Projects are child’s play compared to needed changes in the way we behave.

A policy article authored by several dozen scientists appeared online March 15 in Science to acknowledge this point: “Human societies must now change course and steer away from critical tipping points in the Earth system that might lead to rapid and irreversible change. This requires fundamental reorientation and restructuring of national and international institutions toward more effective Earth system governance and planetary stewardship.”
Unfortunately, far more is needed. To be effective, a new set of institutions would have to be imbued with heavy-handed, transnational enforcement powers. There would have to be consideration of some way of embracing head-in-the-cloud answers to social problems that are usually dismissed by policymakers as academic naivete. In principle, species-wide alteration in basic human behaviors would be a sine qua non, but that kind of pronouncement also profoundly strains credibility in the chaos of the political sphere. Some of the things that would need to be contemplated: How do we overcome our hard-wired tendency to “discount” the future: valuing what we have today more than what we might receive tomorrow? Would any institution be capable of instilling a permanent crisis mentality lasting decades, if not centuries? How do we create new institutions with enforcement powers way beyond the current mandate of the U.N.? Could we ensure against a malevolent dictator who might abuse the power of such organizations?
He means 'abuse the power in ways I would not approve of', I think. And crap like this is why the trust in people who want the UN running us is, ah, 'low' shall we say? And why so many have such distrust of a lot of people in the sciences.

I'm going to go out in the sun for a while; both for the vitamin D and because I need some fresh air.

I sound like I've been gargling gravel;

not a good way to start things.

So, the NYEffingTimes was lying about things a long time ago, to get the story they wanted as opposed to the real one.(found over at Ace)

Anyone else get the feeling that he means "If I win, I'll do whatever I want; and if I lose, I'll do whatever I want until they throw me out in January."?

Interesting to have a AG who thinks a subpoena is something to be obeyed only if you feel like it.
Therefore, Weich is denying Issa‘s and Grassley’s subpoena because of the “sensitivity” of the ongoing operation.

Issa spokeswoman Becca Watkins responded Friday night, saying, “It is troubling that the attorney general continues to express the outlandish view that his compliance with lawful and binding subpoenas is merely optional.”
Of course, we also have a Treasury Secretary who cheated on his taxes and got a special deal from the IRS, and a Rep. who was writing the tax laws he cheated on and then his defenders claimed 'those laws were too complicated for him to understand', and...

Haven't said anything about the shooting in Florida; reason being that information is still coming out. I will say that if this Justice Department had any integrity at all, they'd be investigating the NBP clowns calling for kidnapping and murder. Of course, this JD doesn't give a rats ass about voter intimidation if blacks are doing it, so they're not going to do anything about this. Or other death threats.

Bleah. I need a large glass of tea. More later, assuming I feel like it.

May be a good thing I couldn't make the shoot today,

as I seem to have broken with some bug; better to miss the Schutenfest than maybe spread this around. Or it may be something in the air with everything blooming/leafing out, since there's not fever(as yet, anyway).

Ah well.

By the way, know anybody who owns gold bars? Send them this and see if they break out in hives.

Heard of this, first time I've seen this map

Oh, I want to go

Thought might be able to make the last day of the Gunblogger Schutenfest,

but the world called, and just got all that done. So by the time could get up there...

Ah well, next time I'll make sure have at least one day free for it.

And while Obama is helping stir things up, and he odious

Sharpton & Co. are trying to start violence, and the NBP dirtbags that Holder has such a tender spot for are planning on kidnapping and murder, this stuff isn't getting much press for some reason:
A 13-year-old Kansas City [MO] boy is back home after two teenagers poured gasoline on him and lit him on fire.

It happened Tuesday [Feb 28] at the teen’s home on Quincy Avenue, just down the street from Kansas City’s East High School. The boy lives less than two blocks away from the school and was walking home when the attack happened.

…the teens followed [him] home and attacked him outside his front door … rushed him on the porch as he tried to get the door open… [one] poured the gasoline, then flicked the Bic, and said, ‘This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy’.
Here's the description of the attackers:
Police said the two suspects, believed to be around 16 years old, are male and have facial hair.

One was wearing a blue hat, blue jacket, and shoes with the number 23 on the side.

The other wore a blue hat, a black jacket, and wore glasses.
Notice anything missing?

Moreover, after conducting an investigation that included extensive interviews with parents and students, I’ve learned that Coon’s son is not alone. Other white students also report a pattern of racial harassment at the high school at the hands of their peers — and, shockingly, their teachers.

…Two of these victims were the twin 14-year-old daughters (first names withheld upon request) of Karin Wildeisen. Ever since their family relocated from Texas, they had endured racial animosity in the Kansas City school system and inappropriate behavior by staff, which included teachers laughing while boys humiliatingly manhandled the girls and a teacher slapping one of them on the backside….

Then, further down, in Boston,
The arguments between my daughter and these boys started with a couple of the boys asking Morgan to be their girlfriend. When Morgan turned them down, they retaliated by calling her names like “fat ho, lesbian b**ch, c**t, etc…” this goes on for about a month before the first assault on the bus occurs. The boys are refugees brought over from Kenya and Ethiopia. Morgan was brutally attacked. First elbowed in the face, followed by 6 to 7 punches knocking her front teeth out and leaving her with a concussion. It took four teachers to get one of the boys off her…”
Where's our major media on these stories? Guarandamntee you, if this had been white kids abusing blacks or hispanics there'd be screaming on all fronts; instead
I am not exaggerating when I say that there was not a word about this story in the national press. I searched, and the only stories I could find were the write up in the Daily News mentioned above and, oddly, a story in the Daily Mail, a British paper.

Nothing from the New York Times, AP, Reuters, UPI, etc. If any reader can produce a story about this sadistic attack that was actually published or mentioned in a national outlet, let me know. I’m only human; I may have missed it. I welcome being proved wrong about this, because I’m about ready to fold up my tent, quit civilization, and go find myself a comfy cave in Borneo to live in. This country is, like a bad calculus problem, rapidly approaching zero.
