Slight problem with starting to work out a bit again:

my condition sucks.  I shall now relax with a bit of data

Considering how his minions police Facebook,

I'm half-surprised Zuckerbitch doesn't have cameras on the wall to catch anyone being insufficiently PC.

Speaking of PC bullshit, where Great Britain used to be ; because the schools are run by PC idiots, and apparently the police have nothing better to do than be PC enforcers.
Farging idiots.
UKIP's deputy leader Paul Nuttall reacted angrily at the suggestion the party's website was flagged in this way.

"I don't know how you can be extremists when you have 22 MEPs, a member of Parliament, three lords and 500 councillors all over the country," he said.
Because you say things and point out things the whiny pussies don't like, that's why.

I've posted this before, but it's worth doing again. 
Remember: you don't have to be ripped and low-drag to get the job done.  
Many of the civilian hobbyists were much better shots than he expected. In fact, they were more than good—some of them gave the special ops warrior a run for his money.

It was a humbling experience—and an awakening for Satterlee.

And last, that big minimum-wage hike in Seattle?  Not working out real well.

Forming brass to make one case from another is either

simple and smooth, or a great big PITA.  Worst I've ever done was forming .30 Nagant from .223; easiest is a tie between .308 to .338 Federal, and .223 to .300 Blackout.

I'll also throw in, wish I'd known of the lanolin & alcohol method a long time ago.

Speaking of, I'd love to take the .338 out for a spin, but the shoulder's not quite ready for that, I think.  Though the most difficult area now is the area around the end of the collarbone where they cleaned it up, not the area of the tear, which seems to have healed up nicely.

Speaking of, still doing the PT stuff but working in something of regular workout stuff, too.  Carefully.  Regular pushups, for instance, are right out; only leaning-to-the-wall type still.  I really need to find a gym that isn't too far away and doesn't want to rape you on fees to join, I think having weights to use would help a lot.

Professor Click is now out-and-out lying (update)

Click told investigators that the student journalist, Mark Schierbecker, appeared threatening when he approached her inside the perimeter of protesters.
Click told investigators she was concerned that Schierbecker might have a gun because the Missouri Legislature had recently passed a law allowing students to carry concealed firearms on campus.
Slight problems:
Let's step back for a moment. Click allegedly thought the student had a gun, so her response was to bring other students into the situation, possibly putting them in harm's way.

Also, Missouri did not pass a law allowing concealed firearms on campus. A month after the incident, a state senator introduced such a bill.
Liar, liar, pants on fire. 
Update: Mr. Day pointed out she has been fired.  Guess they could paper over the 'I need muscle' crap(though why would they?), but the extra idiocy pushed them to act.
The curators’ earlier decision to suspend Click has been criticized by the MU Faculty Council and the American Association of University Professors.
Of course it was; the idea of their august selves actually being held responsible for the crap they do must upset them something terrible.

Speaking of lying progressive assholes, I present the guy who apparently gave Obama & Co. some of their ideas on how to damage the US, the same way he damaged Britain.

I'm not excerpting anything, there's too much on the lies, betrayals, and generally disgusting actions.  But then those are what we expect from socialists.

"It's different when we do it. And don't pay attention to what I did then,

do what I'm telling you now."
But his nomination to the federal bench was dead on arrival at Biden’s Senate Judiciary Committee. Biden refused to even hold a hearing on Roberts’s nomination, much less a vote in committee or on the Senate floor. Roberts’s nomination died in committee and was withdrawn on Oct. 8, 1992. It was only about a decade later that he was re-nominated to the federal bench by President George W. Bush — and we all know the rest of the story.
Roberts was not alone in being denied a hearing or a vote by Biden. According to a report by the Congressional Research Service (CRS), in 1992 Biden killed the nominations of 32 Bush appointees to the federal bench without giving them so much as a hearing.

Let's make this short: NOBODY in DC, in a suit or in uniform, can be trusted.

Friday evening,

after a day at the range; windy, but the sun was out and it wasn't freezing, and I actually hit the targets.  So I shall celebrate by sharing the current data

Everyone Believes in Free Speech But...

Actually I'm happy to debate any expert "climate scientist", yet oddly enough it's your guys who run and hide. Michael E Mann, David Suzuki and all the rest decline every opportunity to "shoot Steyn down in flames". All Mr Leonisky has to do to get his wish is persuade one of his shrinking-violet climate queens to take the unprecedented step of agreeing to debate someone who disagrees with them. Imagine that.

Twitters' 'report a violation' form includes

Three guesses what kind of 'disrespectful or in disagreement' is going to be used to ban people?

The University of Michigan-Flint: SJB Central, it seems.
The University of Michigan-Flint has launched a website where "students who experience any form of bias or micro-aggressions whatsoever" can tattle on members of their community.

In a campus-wide email sent Tuesday afternoon (and shared with the Washington Examiner), UM-Flint staff announced the new website and encouraged students, faculty and staff to begin reporting. They can even do so anonymously.
Ok, so use it: every student who's of conservative or libertarian bent who's insulted, belittled, and otherwise made uncomfortable or threatened by some leftist professor or SJW, report them.  Every time, every word, every action.

And if the university fails to act on your complaints, that just might give ammunition for a discrimination suit against them.

So Venezuela is now one more socialist paradise with no toilet paper(or much of anything else).  And it's our fault, of course.

"We used to produce rice and we had excellent coffee; now we produce nothing. With the situation here people abandoned the fields," says Jesús López, in reference to government-seized land that sits idle. "Empty shelves and no one to explain why a rich country has no food. It's unacceptable," adds the 90-year-old farmer from San Cristóbal, on the western state of Táchira, bordering Colombia.
Well, hell, Jesús, that 'government-seized land' ought to be a clue.
For Oliveros, an additional cause for the shortage of basic food staples is the decrease in agricultural production resulting from seized companies and land expropriations. "More than 3m hectares were expropriated during 2004-2010. That and overvalued exchange rate destroyed agriculture. It's cheaper to import than it is to produce. That's a perverse model that kills off any productivity," he says.
Socialism: working as it always does.

By the way, next time someone starts on the wonderful socialized medicine systems of places like Sweden,
The trend continues, with the English-language The Local reporting last week that "One in ten Swedes now has private health insurance." The site also says, "More than half a million Swedes now have private health insurance," though that seems to refer to the growth in the number of policies, with many more of the country's 9.5 million people actually covered by private insurance.

Why the growth? From The Local:
"It's quicker to get a colleague back to work if you have an operation in two weeks' time rather than having to wait for a year," privately insured Anna Norlander told Sveriges Radio on Friday. "It's terrible that I, as a young person, don't feel I can trust the health care system to take care of me."

In a separate article about Sweden's shrinking welfare state, The Local also noted that "visitors are sometimes surprised to learn about year-long waiting times for cancer patients."
You'll note that they've also been cutting WAY back on all the happy-socialism crap; because it was ruining them.

The CDC slipped-up and presented some uncomfortable- for the 'ban guns' people- facts.

If you pack stuff right,

it'll keep for a looong time.  Lots of pictures.
Here's an interesting finding from a Latvian forest - five hermetic containers intended for German saboteurs, who acted in the time of WWII in the rear of Red Army. All these seventy years the containers were reliably protected from moisture, so the contents are preserved even better than it could be at a warehouse.

This has been pointed out before,

but it's never a bad thing to remind people of what their god did:
After scrutinizing Roosevelt's record for four years, Harold L. Cole and Lee E. Ohanian conclude in a new study that New Deal policies signed into law 71 years ago thwarted economic recovery for seven long years.

No, I do NOT want Rubio in the Oval Office.  First chance he gets, he'd start amnesty for illegals, the bastard.

Big reason so many millenials like the idea of socialism?  Because the schools have done two things:They haven't taught them what it actually is, and
They haven't taught history; they've taught the socialist/progressive/communist-approved version.

And what's the local school teaching YOUR kids or grandkids?

All those enviroweenies screaming if some researcher who doesn't go along with AGW gets any money connected in any way from an oil company?
Of the more than 100 climate “experts” signing the letter as of now, 73 are affiliated with U.S. universities, including Harvard, MIT and Stanford, just to name a few.

Of those 73 signatories, 59 of them are affiliated at universities that -- in 2014 alone -- accepted grants worth about $40 million from ExxonMobil.

In 2002, Exxon awarded Stanford University a ten-year grant worth $225 million. One might expect such an award to give Stanford professor Mark Z. Jacobson some pause in adding his name to a petition demanding Exxon not sponsor the AGU -- but he did sign it. Jacobson should forward the AGU letter to Stanford’s Board of Trustees to see what they have to say.
And a real winner,
As federal funding for climate research recedes amid budgetary belt-tightening, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution signed agreements in 2014 to do research for the Saudi Arabia-owned oil company Saudi Aramco. What are Woods Hole researchers doing for Saudi Aramco? They are helping the company find more oil in the Red Sea, of course.

Sheriff Joe, like a bunch of other Democrats, doesn't like having his words brought back up.  Especially when they're a problem for what he wants done.

And anybody who expects Dear Leader to actually do anything

other than give a speech and try to otherwise ignore it, is a fool.
The New York Times recently wrote that it is difficult to distinguish between Putin's and Obama's Syria strategies. Meanwhile, historian and journalist Michael Ignatieff and Brookings Institution fellow Leon Wieseltier lamented in the Washington Post, "It's time for those who care about the moral standing of the United States to say that this policy is shameful." 

It is very clear at this point that the US has no strategy beyond its half-hearted efforts to provide training and arms to rebels -- and to otherwise rely on negotiations. But none of this has born any fruit, as events in early February demonstrated.
He'll shine the light of his Presence on everything, say some words, his worshippers will swoon again, and NOTHING will actually get done.  Because I don't think he actually gives a damn. 

Government-run health care: where the patients count for nothing, but keeping the brass happy is everything.  And when they're incompetent or criminal, or both, the worst they have to fear is a transfer.

One more reason to close the Department of Education.  As if we needed any more.

This administration and all its little friends want someone who loses or has a gun stolen to be treated like criminals; wonder if they'll demand the same treatment for the DHS clowns involved?
Yeah, I know, stupid question.
The letter was prompted after the news website Complete Colorado reported last month that DHS marked 1,300 badges, 589 cell phones and scores of firearms lost or stolen between 2012 and 2015. DHS’s poor firearms security “shows that the department is consistently unable to safeguard sensitive property,” the congressmen wrote.

“The fact that hundreds of badges and cell phones are missing gives rise to a variety of different security threat possibilities,” the letter said. “It is particularly troubling, however, that the department cannot account for its entire inventory of firearms.”
Hmm... I find myself wondering just what all firearms they cannot account for.

It is said that, on the way to Waterloo, Gen. Arthur Wellesley

watch a unit of Highlanders march by singing, turned to an aide and said "I don't know what they do to the enemy, but by God! they terrify me."

Wonder what he'd make of these guys?

If you mess on Facebook, another angle at this address

Professor Click, you're a liar

“All right, who wants to help me get this reporter out of here, I need some muscle over here, help me get him out!", but we're supposed to believe
“It was a mistake. I never, ever meant that as a call for violence,”
“He introduced himself only as media, and came at me with a camera,” Click said.
Yeah.  The journalist, in a public place, 'came at you'.  Nice attempt at making him the aggressor.

Our Ambassador to the UN.  Well, considering the genocides and mass-murders the UN's been complicit in, she's a good fit.

Ok, so is there ANYTHING that's not 'known to cause cancer' in Californicated?

Well, either the Saudis know something we don't, or the place is run by bleepin' idiots.

Now that I've been cleared by the surgeon for normal activities, I need some good weather and time to get back to the outdoor range.  Indoors is fine, it's much closer, but the outdoor has longer ranges.  And there's just something right about shooting under open sky.

Have I mentioned that I'm sick to Gods-damned death of bigoted fools

who insist the ONLY reason you  can have to oppose Obama- on anything- is that you're a racist?

Or that the only reason anyone opposes Obamacare is 'irrational hatred'?

Who is the JV team again?

American proxies are now at war with each other in Syria.

Officials with Syrian rebel battalions that receive covert backing from one arm of the U.S. government told BuzzFeed News that they recently began fighting rival rebels supported by another arm of the U.S. government.

The infighting between American proxies is the latest setback for the Obama administration’s Syria policy and lays bare its contradictions as violence in the country gets worse.
'Leading from Behind'.   'Smart Diplomacy'.  You couldn't make this crap up without being called stupid.

Throw in the CIA apparently being more worried about playing SJW games than in, say, finding out what the hell other people and countries are doing...

20 Signs That We're Not Living In a Patriarchy

You really couldn't make this shit up:  "We can't have segregated meetings in a public building?  WE'RE HAVING TO MOVE BECAUSE OF WHITE PRIVILEGE!!"

"This post was hurtful and destructive to our campus community. While social media can certainly bring about positive change, it can also be a place that deeply hurts and harms others."

Said the statement by the University of Wisconsin–Whitewater whiny grievance-seeking bitchchancellor about a Snapchat photograph of 2 students who posed in the middle of having a facial that had dark goo spread on their faces. The students say they just thought it looked funny and had no thought of imitating black people.
These idiots already have lots of students afraid to say or do ANYTHING for fear some asshole will call them a racist or whatever-ist and try to get them thrown out of school; having officials feed into the idiocy does not help.  'Higher Education' my ass.

'Never talk to a college girl' might seem a bit strong.  Then you consider idiocy like the above, and that you can be accused of sexual assault for asking someone out, or saying "You look nice today", or one of her friends can take offense and accuse you.  Then 'never' starts sounding better.
