Worn. Achy. Somewhat painful.

Go study on your own.

"...and argue that modern college students have become overly coddled."

The students in question aren't just overly-coddled, they're nasty, vicious, unstable brats.

Well, there are two choices: as INsty pointed out, a lot of these people seem too delicate, too high-strung, to be allowed in public places where a single word or image can trigger their brains to short-circuit, so maybe a nice asylum...
The other is the Michael Williamson method of response.  I favor it.

What, the admitted socialist is a hypocritical bastard?  You surprised?

And yet they still cannot keep their mouths shut...


At least the elbow only made my arm hurt;

right now everything attached to that shoulder aches, or is stiff, or both.  Lifting anything heavier than a drink with the right hand is out, and it's going to be a while before I can shoot right-handed, or ride the bike, or anything else requiring arm movement and/or strength on that side.

Yes, day before surgery tanked up the bike, after adding Sta-Bil, and rode it enough to make sure the system is protected.  And the battery tender connection is there, so can just plug it in to cover that end.

When I can drive, it's going to be a 'one-hand only in a standard- tranny vehicle' thing.  Again.  Not much fun, but works.

I shall now end my bitching about it, and present "It's not only the Army that screws with pistol contracts":
Everybody hates this doorstop of a solicitation that’s the size and weight of a Russian novel, but doesn’t even specify what caliber the Army wants. “Surprise us!”

No $#!+, surprise us. Could they have thought up any way to signal more forcefully that they have no idea what they’re doing?
Former SecDef Bob Gates said, “This is absurd… it’s a handgun, for God’s sake.” But the Army requirements document is longer than the D-Day base op order… by about 50 times.
We disagree that the Army has a single preferred pistol in mind, but we think the lack of a caliber spec is a somewhat inept signal that the Army wants to be sold the 9mm again. (Or, God help us, a multicaliber-interchangeable-Man-From-UNCLE gun). But the way the MHS run-off is set up, you can get bounced from the competition if one of your documents has the wrong size margins, but not if your gun doesn’t work.
There’s something deeply pathological about that.

The truth is revealed! The FBI RFP seems to be blatantly tailored to fit one particular firearm, the Sig Sauer P320. There is no doubt that government agencies often write tight standards when a RFP goes out, having specific requirements and needs for the product to be purchased. However, this RFP appears to be so specific that only the Sig Sauer P320 would fit all the FBI requirements. Let’s examine the RFP and show how many fine handguns are eliminated by the FBI requirements.

There's ICE/DHS crap in there too; I'd suggest reading it all, possibly after moving breakables out of reach.

Unfortunately, saying "I can't find media confirmation on this" doesn't mean shit; considering the way Sweden, for one, hammers anyone who talks about the rape numbers and dares to mention 'muslim', means official media is often suspect.  At best.
In a hospital near the Rhine, migrants attacked the staff with knives after they had handed over an 8-month-old on the brink of death, which they had dragged across half of Europe for three months. The child died in two days, despite having received top care at one of the best pediatric clinics in Germany. The physician had to undergo surgery and two nurses are laid up in the ICU. Nobody has been punished.

The local press is forbidden to write about it, so we know about it through email. What would have happened to a German if he had stabbed a doctor and nurses with a knife? Or if he had flung his own syphilis-infected urine into a nurse’s face and so threatened her with infection?

And now, if you'll excuse me, this 'prop the hand up so I can type' this has worn down.  See you later.

Being semi-functional is a fine excuse

to let actual work stuff go, and just scan data.

One of the more sucky things about time:

Don't recover or heal as fast as used to.

Yes, it's improving, but it 's not exactly comfortable.  Sometimes downright painful.  And the 'pain' meds, at best, take some of the edge off; this does not make for a good nights sleep.

So still very slow on bloggage, though I did manage the energy to steal some pics:

In other words, be prepared for lots more 'lone wolf' attacks

from rabid adherents of the Religeon of Submission.

It'll be interesting watching the terminally PC try to spin these people as rightwing haters.  Or somehow justified.  And all the other crap they spew to try to excuse protected species.

No, it's not cetain; would it surprise you in the least if it's true?

And it means the chance of knife/axe attacks anywhere, anytime.

Which also means look for th hoplophobes to denounce the common ownership of cutting tools(which should be 'left to experts', etc.)

Elliot Fineman: "Screw the Constitution, we want an EMERGENCY DECLARED!!"

If your nose is suddenly bleeding, you are in good company. You cannot read that much stupid and not suffer some sort of blood loss. It simply does not make one bit of sense what Elliot is saying. 10 rounds a minute? The century old concept of magazine release button as a circumvention of the 1994 AWB?  He has to have a meth lab behind his house and he is tasting the product…heavily.
What might cause Miguel to speak so?
The certain way to deal with the horror of gun violence now is for President Obama to declare a state of emergency due to the gun violence epidemic and then unilaterally issue the unrestrained executive orders needed to halt it—including universal real background checks—orders he cannot issue without declaring a state of emergency. That is why we urge you to sign our petition asking him to do just that.
Yeah, that'd work out just GREAT.

Also thanks to Miguel, on SYG laws,
What the NYT fails to recognize is that what Florida has is not a “stand-your-ground” problem, it is an “abusive prosecutors” problem.  Had prosecutors ceased their over-reaching in currying political favor this proposed change to the state’s self-defense immunity law would never have seen the light of day.

Boy, those tea party racists will be surprised

when they notice that the new Lt. Governor is black

Or so the leftists will say.  Or they'll call her a race traitor, or something.

So the new SF sheriff is just as much a sanctuary-city asshole,but doesn't have as much baggage.
You'd expect SF to elect anything else?

This should get Blair another mention as a horrible hater, etc.
If New Yorkers want their beaches to be covered in dead bodies, they’re more than welcome to put in place the appropriate asylum seeker lures. Over here in Australia we prefer to keep our territorial waters corpse free, thank you very much. We just think they’re nicer that way.

Australians also enjoy having a functioning economy, with lots of jobs and investment. It’s worked pretty well for us over the past 200 or so years, and will probably continue to do so – unless we allow the United Nations to bully us into sabotaging our own major industries.

And that's the amount of typing I can do for this morning.  Though I will throw in this: 2,000+ yard shot with a K31

Yes, it still hurts, and this level of stupid makes it worse

Therefore, since they're not simply triggering me, they're causing actual pain, every asshole in Vassar and Oberlin involved in this should be chipped.
Administrators at Vassar College agreed to personally shred a pocket Constitution after an undercover reporter posing as a student complained that she felt “triggered” by its distribution on campus, while professors at Oberlin College confided that they shared the reporter's misgivings about the founding document.

And O'Keefe, you should know better:
“When this idea came up in our newsroom about campus administrators shredding the Constitution because it’s a trigger against students, we didn’t think people would actually fall for it,” he says at one point. “We underestimated just how stupid and politically correct these people are.”

Before the surgery everyone who'd had it told me

"Don't push it".  I have to note that pain is a good limiter on pushing it.  I was given one exercise to to in the time before the stitches are pulled, and consider how it hurts that's quite enough.  I can now prop my right hand up and use it a bit, but that's about it.

So, in my efforts to not go nuts doing nothing, a few links:
More San Francisco idiots worried about being too hard on the people who rob them.

And when the bastard gets more people killed, he'll bitch that it's because everybody wouldn't bow down to him.

Anyone think any of the Democrats will think holding Obama to the law is more important than "He's a Democrat!" ? 

More non-existant vote fraud.

And that's my contribution for now
