Ladies, it's a small amount of data,

but I haven't forgotten you

Yes, I did it again, so a bit more data tonight

than usual.

First time in a long time, went to a movie

and saw San Andreas.  Something I'd forgotten that I will remember in the future: 'Start Time' actually means 'The time we start the TWENTY BLOODY MINUTES OF PREVIEWS'.  Ahem.

Yeah, some "Oh, come on!" moments, but overall pretty good.  And the effects are indeed incredible.*

Other day ran across this, a opinion on just what the aftermath of such a quake would mean.  Pretty, it ain't.

*Including that Alexandra Daddario looks and bounces very nicely in a tank top.  I don't think they had to do any electronic addition for that effect.

Pretty good piece on the current 'Leftists eating themselves' situation

The progressive crusaders driving these wars have been dubbed “social justice warriors,” or “SJWs,” by their Internet foes. Some activists on the left proudly embrace the label, crowing that it says a lot about the other side that it uses “social justice” as a derisive epithet. But in fact, this version of “social justice” is not about social justice at all. It is a cultish, essentially totalitarian ideology deeply inimical—as liberals such as Jonathan Chait warn in New York Magazine—to the traditional values of the liberal left, and not just because of the movement’s hostility to freedom of “harmful” speech.
She, like many others, misses an important thing: as Michael Williamson put it, they're leftists, there's nothing liberal about them.

Speaking of, did you know that 'Separate but Equal' is actually a good thing(long as it's the 'right people' getting the separate)?
So let’s get this straight (pun intended): Instead of working to ensure that LGBT students aren’t harassed and treated equally, the University of Oklahoma–a public university subject to the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment–thinks it’s better to offer a segregated “safe space” for LGBT students? Seriously?

How about a taxpayer-funded “safe space” for conservatives, or pro-life students, or even (gasp!) white men? Would the University of Oklahoma think such spaces would be important to furthering its mission of inclusion and diversity, too? Yeah, we know the answer. Oh well, it will make an interesting lawsuit.

Trust?  Any of them?  Why?
The OPM had no IT security staff until 2013, and it showed. The agency was harshly criticized for its lax security in an inspector general’s report released last November that cited its lack of encryption and the agency’s failure to track its equipment. Investigators found that the OPM failed to maintain an inventory list of all of its servers and databases and didn’t even know all the systems that were connected to its networks. The agency also failed to use multi-factor authentication for workers accessing the systems remotely from home or on the road.

Lot more in the post, but this covers it very well:
Here's what neither gentleman understands: We don't trust the GOP any longer.

Paul Ryan argues that there's no sense blocking the fast track authority because Congress will always get an up-or-down vote on the actual trade deal, whenever Obama deigns to share it with us.

He doesn't understand: We no longer trust the GOP. Yes, Mr. Ryan, the GOP will have another chance to weigh in on the TPP in its final form But we don't trust you to do the right thing then, just as we don't trust you to do the right thing now.

At this point, I'm thinking we need to flush EVERYONE out of the State Department and start over.  This is... 'insane' and 'idiotic' don't come close.  And 'massive corruption' is in there somewhere.

Patrick Kennedy, the State Department's undersecretary for management, allegedly blocked diplomatic security investigations that may have cast the bureau in a negative light.
According to an internal memo prepared by the inspector general in October 2013 and obtained by the Washington Examiner, Kennedy personally called off an investigation into the ambassador to Belgium after allegations surfaced that the ambassador had solicited "sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children."
Higbie said the fact that Kennedy has remained in his post despite years of whistleblower testimony against him has "stripped many State Department employees of hope that Kennedy's example will not become acceptable practice and that real cultural change will take place."

Oh, hell, just go read it.  It's amazing, and disgusting, and the fact that this bastard is still in that position tells you all you need to know about the culture in DC in general and the State Dept. in particular.

Once more: We're supposed to trust these people?

But late last week, J. Pete Blair and M. Hunter Martaindale, two academics at Texas State University who co-authored the FBI report, acknowledged that “our data is imperfect.” They said that the news media “got it wrong” last year when they “mistakenly reported mass shootings were on the rise.”

Mind you, the authors did not issue this mea culpa in the major news outlets that supposedly misreported the original findings. Instead, the authors published it in ACJS Today, an academic journal published by the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences. “Because official data did not contain the information we needed, we had to develop our own,” wrote Messrs. Blair and Martaindale. “This required choices between various options with various strengths and weaknesses.” You don’t say.

I keep remembering the then-head of the EffingBI being asked about the IRS investigation, and making it plain that not only did he not know anything about it, he didn't give a crap.  Trustworthy.  Right.

Load I forgot to report on

I had two rounds left from earlier testing I'd saved to run over the Chrony: .30-30, the 100-grain SWC, 9.0 of Unique.  That's not a mouse fart, pushes that little bullet up between 1700-1800fps.  Accuracy not as good as the lighter load, but not bad.  And, at least from two, no mess in the barrel.

I think Rev. King would be tempted

to borrow that whip from Jesus in order to clean some of these people out of his dream.
“America is the land of opportunity,” “There is only one race, the human race” and “I believe the most qualified person should get the job” are among a long list of alleged microaggressions faculty leaders of the University of California system have been instructed not to say.
Martin Luther King’s dream of a “colorblind society.” where people are judged on the content of their character and not the color of their skin, was once embraced by Americans of all political stripes.

Now progressives consider that ideal to be a form of racism.

Hey, the SPLC just “got a tip” and suddenly discovered “an incredible amount of misogyny” on the Internet, which they never noticed, say, in 2008, when liberals were calling Sarah Palin the vilest things imaginable?

Be warned; that slimeball Potok from the Southern Poverty Lies Center is involved.

But you can trust them with your medical records...

According to a Wall Street Journal report, the breach was indeed discovered in April. But according to sources who spoke to the WSJ’s Damian Paletta and Siobhan Hughes, it was in fact discovered during a sales demonstration of a network forensics software package called CyFIR by its developer, CyTech Services. “CyTech, trying to show OPM how its cybersecurity product worked, ran a diagnostics study on OPM’s network and discovered malware was embedded on the network,” Paletta and Hughes reported.
Got that?  Reason this was found was "Let us run this to demonstrate... oh my... did you know about this?"

The massive hack into federal systems announced last week was far deeper and potentially more problematic than publicly acknowledged, with hackers believed to be from China moving through government databases undetected for more than a year, sources briefed on the matter told ABC News.
“If [only] they knew the full extent of it,” one U.S. official said about those affected by the intrusion into the Office of Personnel Management’s information systems.

Anarchangel put it this way:
At this point, you have to assume that this is the worst case scenario... it looks very much like it is, and they can't ensure otherwise. 

I'm assuming all records, reports, and supporting materials for clearance investigations, for military purposes, DOD, DOE, state, and other national security and intellegence apparatus, conducted outside of military channels... which is most of them... Including all clearance investigation for service attached to national security and intelligence apparatus, and associated background briefs, and all military records and reports obtained and attached to those reports records and materials... are compromised.
Which means the Chinese have had a year to dig around and copy and study.. can you say 'blackmail material'?  Can you say 'intelligence breach of unbelievable proportions'?

Makes you wonder if this has anything with Obama & Co. wanting to badly to get this fast-track trade bill through.

Federal investigators are trying to determine whether the massive hack into federal systems announced this past week impacted far more than the estimated 4 million current and former government employees already acknowledged by the Obama administration, sources familiar with the matter told ABC News.
In particular, investigators are considering the possibility that private citizens who never worked for the U.S. government may have also had personal information compromised, sources said.
At the heart of concern are forms filled out by federal employees seeking security clearances. The forms -- known as SF-86's and used for background investigations -- were exposed after hackers infiltrated the Office of Personnel Management's information systems in December, according to the sources.
Acting as the government's human resources division, OPM conducts about 90 percent of background investigations for the federal government. And federal employees who submit the SF-86 forms provide personal information not only about themselves but also relatives, friends, and potentially even college roommates.

Reasons to get rid of the EPA and DHS:

This level of corruption and bullshit calls for it.
A Department of Homeland Security agent testified Thursday that she nearly lost custody of her 1-year-old adopted daughter and was told that she could not own a personal firearm after she voiced concerns about a little known federal program that grants green cards to foreign investors.
Taylor Johnson, a senior special agent with a division of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), testified at a Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs hearing alongside several other whistleblowers who claim they’ve faced retaliation for reporting wrongdoing in their agencies.
Aside from the more obvious corruption here, we have
Some of those who Mayorkas was in contact with include Nevada U.S. Sen. Harry Reid and current Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe. Mayorkas met with Reid to discuss an EB-5 application for the Sands Casino, a Las Vegas casino which employed Reid’s son’s law firm.
Mayorkas was in routine contact with McAuliffe who aggressively pushed for EB-5 approval for his company, GreenTech Automotive. Hillary Clinton’s brother, Tony Rodham, was also involved in that deal.

And the latest bullshit from the EPA:
The Environmental Protection Agency launched a new online tool today that can show you if environmental justice in your neighborhood is out of whack.

It’s called EJSCREEN, “an environmental justice screening and mapping tool that uses high resolution maps combined with demographic and environmental data to identify places with potentially elevated environmental burdens and vulnerable populations,” according to the agency.

“EJSCREEN’s simple to understand color-coded maps, bar charts, and reports enable users to better understand areas in need of increased environmental protection, health care access, housing, infrastructure improvement, community revitalization, and climate resilience.”
And how might you think they plan to use this, hmmm?

But if we don't pay our UN dues, who'll pay the pimps and dirtbags

among the peacekeepers?  How'll they run the child brothels and such if we don't pay for their transport and upkeep?
UN peacekeepers forced hundreds of Haitian women to have sex with them in return for food and medicine, according to a shocking new report. 
Sexual exploitation remains significantly underreported in such missions, according to the document obtained by The Associated Press.

Got a question about the light/very light/mouse fart loads

want to cover:
On a more serious note: 5 gr. of powder in a '06 case is almost nothing. Do you use some stuffing, like a bit of cotton fluff or paper on top of the powder to hold it against the primer for consistent ignition? Or does it just not matter in your application?
And, do you find that if you reduce powder charges too much, you get incomplete ignition resulting in a squib? Honestly, I have never seen anyone going down in velocity to such a degree, but you seem to have a reason for it, and it does get you out to the range. And that is reason enough
Covering this in some detail,
You're right on 'almost nothing'.  The standard M2 Ball load in .30-06 is a 150-grain jacketed bullet over (originally as I recall) 48.0 grains of IMR4895 powder for a velocity of ~2800 feet per second.  Compared to that 5.0 grains is tiny.  And this uses a fast-burning pistol powder which takes up less space than 5.0 of 4895 would*.  I've read a lot over time of people using something as a filler with small powder charges to keep it in place near the base of the case for consistent ignition(from "You must use'" to "Don't be stupid, don't do it!"); not just on tiny charges like this, but reduced charges like you'd use in a Garand using cast bullets.  Some cartridges/propellants it's not argued, you need to do so; some propellants will not ignite and burn consistently if you don't.  Some it's optional unless you're going for maximum accuracy, it can make a difference.  And for some, doesn't matter(one reason for The Load for many cartridges being 16.0 2400 under a cast bullet 150 to 180 grains; 2400 isn't position sensitive so no filler needed).  Bullseye(or Unique or several others) seem to ignite and burn quite well without being so confined, and serve the purpose well loose in the case.  Also, that's one reason a lot of people recommend drilling the flash hole out**, to make sure ignition will be as good as consistent and even as possible.

One of the warnings in some of the Cast Boolit threads on the subject was 'Yeah, if you want to try taking it as far down as possible, be sure to take a range rod with you 'cause sure as hell you will get one stuck in the barrel at some point.'  In the spirit of "Just how slow can I take this?" I might try that sometime, but right now I was looking at, in no particular order,
low recoil,
at least decent accuracy,
not having to beat something out of the bore.
Partly out of "This sounds neat, I'm gonna try it!", partly "How would this work for cheap practice/pest control out of a centerfire rifle?"   And I've got answers; with a bullet your rifle likes, you can get pretty good accuracy out to 50 yards with low-to-nonexistent recoil and much-reduced noise.

Also, so far I've seen no evidence of unburned powder granules, and the bores have stayed nice & clean, no sign of lead fouling.

*Don't EVEN think of using that small an amount of such propellant.  Ever.  Just don't.
**Remember, you should mark and keep the cases for these loads separate from what you use for full-power loads.  ESPECIALLY if you drill out the flash hole, NEVER use those for anything but the very light loads.

Here's hoping Amherst loses both ears, the tail,

and their endowment.  A very short summation by Ace:
Yes, you read that right. The Kangaroo Court found that the boy was likely blacked out unconscious from drinking during the accuser's performing of oral sex on him, but that this is never an excuse.

Apparently, if you're asleep or unconscious, and a woman performs oral sex on your unconscious body, you can be later be accused and convicted (in a college civil tribunal) of rape, if she decides that this was all rather ill-advised.
If a male did that to a female, he's a rapist.  A female does it to a male... he's a rapist.

I hope his attorney goes for the throat; a few of these colleges, and the idiots in charge of this, losing their ass will be the only thing that'll get their attention.

Sue the selectmen for this crap, and throw in the CoP; he damn well knew this was bullshit.

What it takes to live and work in Mexico.  Bribes, fees, forms and all.  While the bastards say they should be free to come and go here anytime they wish, AND get all the benefits they want.

That is one big damn fish.  With big damn teeth.
The massive predator, measuring 20-plus feet and boasting the girth of a fat hippo, was featured last year by the Discovery network, which aired part of a tagging effort that involved local researcher Mauricio Hoyos Padilla. 

The shark, perhaps 50 years old, was said to be one of the largest white sharks ever tagged and videotaped, and on Tuesday Hoyos posted newly released footage of the same shark on Facebook, under the title, “I give you the biggest white shark ever seen in front of the cages in Guadalupe Island… DEEP BLUE!!!”
Read this book last year, and she mentioned that the big sharks, especially the biggest females, had a girth that was flat amazing; looking at that picture, I believe her.

You can donate to whoever you want, but

it'd be a good idea to know who/what you're supporting; the price for not doing so could be high.
Liquor stores in a Colorado coal town are pulling craft beers from their shelves after a number of their brewers donated to an environmental group working to shut down coal mines.
Gillam’s liquor store, Stockmen’s, pulled several beer brands from its shelves, including the popular Fort Collins-based New Belgium, over their support for the group.

WildEarth Guardians has since taken down its website’s list of corporate supporters, but a cached version remains online.
"Oh crap, this might affect our donations!  Pull the list!"  You forget, bunkie, the innernets is FOREVER.
“I had a band in here on Friday night and somebody came up to me and said, ‘Did you know that New Belgium is on board with WildEarth Guardians?’ I confirmed it, and after I confirmed it, I walked up to my bartender and said, ‘Get that s— out from behind my bar,’” Griffith said. “I can’t see supporting a company that supports a company that’s trying to put us out of business. The very beer I’m selling is trying to put me out of business, because they’re in bed with WildEarth Guardians.”
Yeah, that just might piss people off, y'think?

And the response:
New Belgium confirmed that it had donated to WildEarth but said that it had no plans to continue doing so. The brewer said it was unaware of the group’s anti-coal advocacy.
"We don't plan to continue now that it's biting big chunks out of our ass."  As to whether they knew... only they can say.   And I doubt they're dumb enough to say "Yes, we knew they hate coal; so do we."

As Skidmark noted, my piece on load testing

would cause the .gov to want to mail me for violating ITAR.  Because someone somewhere overseas might read it.

That posting about practice loads of a whole 800fps would be considered 'spreading illegal tech(however they word it)' illustrates just how damn stupid this is.

Because if you don't read more than the headline you won't know how they're lying to you

Reuters Health) – – More than one in four U.S. children are exposed to weapon violence before their eighteenth birthday, either as victims or witnesses, a large study suggests. About one in 33 kids are directly assaulted during incidents involving guns or knives, researchers report in the journal Pediatrics.
Much of the violence involved objects such as sticks, rocks, bottles, but about 3 percent of children reported exposure to guns and knives.
That means that according to their study, 97% of kids are not exposed to gun and knife violence.  If that number is bad, I want you to think about this: They had to bundle both guns and knives to come up with the three percent. That should make you wonder how low the gun numbers were to begin with that they needed a little help from your friendly statistician.

McConnell, you're full of shit.

Well, Judge, if you started throwing people in cells for perjury, you'd probably get a LOT of this cleared up.

And while the NYeffingTimes is yelling about Rubio having a boat, wonder if they'll ask John Effing Kerry about this?
Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry is docking his family's new $7 million yacht in neighboring Rhode Island, allowing him to avoid paying roughly $500,000 in taxes to the cash-strapped Bay State.

If the "Isabel" were kept at the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee's summer vacation home on Nantucket, or in Boston Harbor near his city residence, he would be liable for $437,500 in one-time sales tax. He would also have to pay $70,000 in annual excise taxes.
Last I heard, the bastard was saying "Of course I'll pay any taxes due!"  Neatly sidestepping that by playing these games he's dodged said taxes.

This clown truly win a prize for his two-faced crap, doesn't he?

The Obama administration has asked a secret surveillance court to ignore a federal court that found bulk surveillance illegal and to once again grant the National Security Agency the power to collect the phone records of millions of Americans for six months.

The legal request, filed nearly four hours after Barack Obama vowed to sign a new law banning precisely the bulk collection he asks the secret court to approve, also suggests that the administration may not necessarily comply with any potential court order demanding that the collection stop.

Also, of the Idiot in Chief,
“If you’re this far into something and you haven’t come up with a complete strategy, you have no strategy.”
Unless his strategy is 'Pretend to do something until I'm out of office, and leave the mess for someone else.  Who I'll criticize for not doing enough/acting stupidly/hating islam.'

I need to try something else:

borrow the use of a .30-06 with a scope, same for a .303 and a few others, and see how those light loads group then.

Well, the M1 has a scope... have to cycle the action by hand, but that should work.  So, ok, a .303 and a few others.

"There's already a law, but we want ANOTHER ONE!

Because security theater has lost its luster!"
Also 'Because it has to do with guns, and we can't control it, so we'll ban it!'

Well, it's definitely up there: The Stupidest Article About Guns You Will Ever Read
And, surprisingly, this idiocy brought to you by Rolling Stone

Well, both of them know they can't trust Obama, so...
To be sure, there has long been a certain amount of back channel communication between Jerusalem and Riyadh, including the limited sharing of intelligence information.  But the notion of a senior Israeli diplomat sharing the stage with an influential member of the Saudi defense establishment--and the meeting generating virtually no criticism outside of Iran--that's a reflection of just how dire the current situation has become.

At last!

I made it to the outdoor range for a bit of testing and general fun.  Couple of light loads in .30-06, sighting the project rifle, and some other crap.  Including a .22 just for fun.  Well, and making sure it was zeroed, but otherwise for fun.

The two light loads were using the 100-grain SWC and 115-grain spitzer, both sized .311" over 3.0 grains of Bullseye, at fifty yards, ten-round groups, target has a 3" bullseye.
I have no idea what happened with that one up high-left, all others went well as I could hope for with iron sights.


I was able to set up the Chrony:
SWC loads highest velocity 899, lowest 818, average 840fps.
Spitzer loads highest 781, lowest 729, average 760fps.  That extra 15 grains in the bullet did pull it down a bit.
I still get a bit of a giggle-fit at times when pulling the trigger on a 1903 produces a mild 'bang' and about as much recoil as a .22 while creating groups like this.

For straight practice, I'd go with the spitzers; with my dies(Lee) they're a lot easier to get seated evenly at the depth I want than the SWCs.  For pest control around a garden/farm/whatever, I'd go with the SWCs; that flat nose would, I think, work a lot better for putting them down.  I do need to find a set of .30-06 dies of different brand to try, see if the SWC problem is with the bullet length and shape, or something about the dies.

Also had a few .30-30 loaded with the SWC over 2.5 grains of Bullseye, which produced this:
There was one more that I pulled a bit high, and I didn't save that particular target.  Also didn't think to take a picture before pulling this one(it's at the top of the spitzer target).  That group is about 6" below the point of aim as I didn't adjust the sight for the load.  Velocity for these, high 826, low 723, average 793fps.

On the project rifle, in no particular order:
Capable of fine accuracy.
Since they don't make one, I need to get a grind-to-fit Limbsaver pad and modify to fit; few rounds hunting, no big deal; bunch of rounds in cold blood from a bench, for my shoulder at times, problem.  I had a Limbsaver slip-on in the range servant, otherwise I'd have been in trouble.
I looked at the ballistics charts Federal has for their factory ammo, they show very little difference in trajectory between the 185-grain and 200-grain bullet loads; at least in this rifle, the hell there's not.  A zero with the 200-grain at 100 yards had the 185 hitting right at 6" high.  I really need to find a longer range to use for some shots, only way to know exactly how these things will perform at longer distances.
I took along some handloads made from Winchester and Federal .308 brass formed to .338, using Varget and 200-grain Speer softpoints; they shot nicely.
No, I didn't pull that target or take a picture.  Blame it on getting really hot and worn at that point; once summer got here, it really did.

Thus ends my report for the day.

First, an attack on the 2nd Amendment by a usual suspect:

Rev. Snuffy is busy blaming the NRA again for the mess in Chicago.  Because it couldn't be RWPPs like his friends Jackson and Sharpton, let alone himself, let alone the local gangs, oh no: it's the fault of that nasty NRA and members..

Second attack, on both the 1st and 2nd, the kind of thing we've come to expect: "Hey, let's shut down these people saying and passing around information we don't like by saying it violates a treaty!"
At this point, yeah, it may take hanging some people to do some good.

Dammit, Blair, you know they only attack people who're safe to attack;

and the real enemy is anything but.
True to his word, Hitchens did indeed continue to fight “a war to the finish between everything I love and everything I hate”, right up until his death in late 2011. But a funny thing happened to his friends on the broader left. Faced with the perfect enemy, the left utterly bottled it. 

Even worse, many leftists – presumably confused by this enemy’s non-Anglo appearance, and desperately wishing not to be seen as racist – have since wilfully conceded territory to what Hitchens accurately described as “theocratic barbarism”. We can witness such concessions in the soft, compliant coverage in Australia of the Sydney-based Hizb ut-Tahrir extremist group.
Yep.  Between fear of being called the Fatal Name, and fear of an enemy who'll actually kill them, they bowed.  And kept bowing.

I got nothin' this morning

Lots of it, but nothing more.

Under the 'Too stupid to breathe' heading,

2) Always wait until finishing your woodwork with the skillsaw prior to using your meth.
When attempting a self-circumcision do not use dry ice to numb the area... and when the dry ice sticks to the... a.... area, do not attempt to remove the ice with boiling water.

Under the double heading "Can't stop the signal, Mal" and "Things that make Bloomberg and Watts really pissy", a 3-D printed revolver.

Under two headings as well: "Why do you want a big magazine anyway?" and "Reasons overuse of SWAT is a bad idea":

Seriously, you ever looked at the number of home invasions where the bad guys are yelling "POLICE!" as they break in?  Sometimes with jackets that say 'Police'?  The days of "You should have known it was the police" are long gone.

And now, if you'll excuse me, I think I'm going to flop down with a book for a while.

Oh yeah, this is all going wonderfully!

Saudi Arabia said it shot down a Scud missile fired by Yemen's Shiite rebels and their allies early Saturday at a Saudi city that is home to a large air base, marking a major escalation in the monthslong war.

And I'm sure, since Dear Leader has assured us ISIL is the junior varsity, and being degraded and destroyed by all those bombs not dropped, that this 'billions available to get nukes' isn't anything to worry about...

Wonder if these idiots(the ones in the White House) have seriously considered what'll happen when some islamists smuggle a dirty or properly-working nuclear bomb across the border?  That's if they get caught; if they don't get caught until they're setting it, or if it goes off... these fools may think they can control the reaction, or use it somehow.  They may actually have no idea just what the blowback will be.

If you've followed any of the mess with the Hugo awards and Sad Puppies, you know what a mess it's become.  If you haven't, short version:
Larry Correia got tired of the Hugos being run by one small group, for one small group.  Started Sad Puppies to get more people to buy memberships so they could vote, so the one small group could no longer decide, based on if the author had the correct political views, who gets a Hugo.  The one small group completely lost their shit, and started calling names and lying, which has led to this from the creative director of Tor books:
Note that Sad Puppies includes, well, everyone: men, women straight, homosexual, whatever skin shade, they don't care; and Irene Gallo has openly called them all neo-nazis and racist and so forth.  Tor books doesn't seem to care that a member of their staff has done this.  Or that two prominent authors who are members of Sad Puppies are PUBLISHED by Tor; which means a member of Tor staff is making false, insulting, and possibly legally-actionable statements about two of their best-selling people...

The levels of stupid and fail involved here are just amazing.

And one more Obamacare exchange fails.  Miserably.
