Just because

Still nice outside, but it's time to break from all the crap

and get to data work.

To every one of the Democrats who voted to shove Obamacare down our throats,

and to every suckass Republican who didn't really want to do anything about it:

I just found out what my insurance will cost next year.

I hope every one of you dies in a crotch fire.

Very Sincerely, etc.

Because freedom of speech only counts

if you say what they want.

And freedom of religion only counts if you do what they want, no matter what.

Plain citizen loses a gun, they lose their shit.  It's stolen, they blame you.  But when they do it...
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, following a request by the Register, assembled a team of nearly two dozen employees to track through thousands of files on gun location and gun assignments. The research found that at least 103 L.A. County Sheriff’s Department guns, ranging from service handguns to shotguns, were lost or stolen over the past five years.

A spokesperson said the agency didn’t previously know how many guns were missing, and hadn’t recently conducted a centralized count of its service handguns. The missing weapons are a tiny portion of the department’s 20,000-gun arsenal.
In recent years, police departments in Oakland and San Jose counted their weapons, and each found more than 300 service firearms had vanished over a six-year period, according to a report from Southern California News Group’s sister publications in the San Francisco Bay area.

From Uncle:
A combination of FBI incompetence, ATF incompetence and state level incompetence lead to people getting guns who should be denied based on background checks: 
So, they’re just not doing their job. And more gun laws will help? Give them more background check violations to not investigate?

It's been a lovely day

that involved gunsmoke, noise and a meeting with friends.  Time to kick back for study time.

Somehow I don't think it helps matters to complain that women and minorities

can't handle the scientific method.

I can't excerpt from this, it's just too painful.  This kind of crap is why I have a label of 'Nutcase-level Feminism'.  Just go read it.

And teeth are gnashing, and the PC police are having fits

A student has taken advantage of the opportunity afforded by University of Michigan's new pronoun policy, which allows students to list their chosen pronouns on the official bios that are sent out to their teachers.

The student, Grant Stroble, has listed his pronoun as "His Majesty."

 As Steve once said, "Bad lawyers are bad lawyers, what makes you think giving one a black robe changes that?"
Judge Kenneth Walker doesn't want you to think he's anti-gun, though. He's clearly read the United States Constitution. After all, when he finally finished his rant, he said, "But it is a right of people in this country to own and possess them, and I will not say anything to affect that right."

It's up to the reader to decide what he meant with that last line after reading his entire rant:
Go ahead, read it.  And the occasion upon which he blew this out:
This all happened during the sentencing hearing for Marcell Lee Daniel, Jr. Daniel is a gang member who has been implicated in multiple shootings. This particular murder was a drive-by gone wrong, in which he killed an innocent man in broad daylight. That man, Drew Coggins, was never involved in gang activity.
Well, Walker, I wouldn't want you to think I'm anti-judge, so I'll explain I think you're a friggin' idiot using that bench to bloviate on your opinions.  You asshat.

'FBI Director' means never having to admit you're full of shit.
Earlier this week FBI Director James Comey told the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs about a looming "terrorist diaspora" that would come from the eventual defeat of ISIS in Syria and Iraq, and yet in October 2014 he told 60 Minutes that any American with a passport who fought with the Islamic State was welcome to return to the U.S. 

Speaking of Weasel Comey,
Respected legal scholar Jonathan Turley had previously opined that "FBI Director James Comey was within accepted lines of prosecutorial discretion in declining criminal charges," even though he believed that  charges could have been brought. Now, due to recent revelations that the Department of Justice handed out at least five immunity deals, Turley believes the matter is a "legitimate matter of congressional concern  and investigation."
My- actually, the only comment:

Thursday, September 29, 2016

I would like to address this to Director Comey:

'Weasel' is far too kind a word for you.

Remember how you first announced 'no prosecution for Clinton or staff' and then hurried to say "But if anyone else did this, they will be prosecuted" ?  And now this bullshit:
Comey insisted there is no double standard, though he said there would be serious consequences — short of criminal prosecution — if FBI personnel handled classified information as Clinton and her aides did.

“Mary or Joe, if they did this in the FBI, would not be prosecuted,” the FBI director said. “They’d be in big trouble, but they would not be prosecuted. That wouldn’t be fair.”
'Fair'?  People are in prison, YOU'VE HELPED PUT PEOPLE IN PRISON FOR THESE VIOLATIONS, but holding EffingBI agents to that standard WOULDN'T BE FAIR?

Thank you, Director Comey, for stating so plainly, that there are special standards for special people, that they won't be treated like the peasants.

You bastard.

What? Depending on windmills may not be a good idea?

"I support renewable energy, I support the Renewable Energy Target, but it's how you achieve it and how you achieve sensible greenhouse gas reduction policies," he said.

"This has not been sensible, it has been reckless — we have relied too much on wind rather than baseload renewables, rather than baseload power, including gas which is a fossil fuel but it is 50 per cent cleaner than coal and a good transitional fuel.

"We need a full independent inquiry. What I'm worried about now is that there are many vulnerable people in my home state that are at real risk of their health so we need to deal with that — this is an emergency.

"This is a textbook case of how not to do it and I cannot fathom, I can't believe, that my state is in darkness at the moment.
When "Renewable for Everything!" politicians are yelling like this, you know there's a problem.

This is unpossible, the Democrats insist there's actually no vote fraud.  Or at least very little.
Federal sources confirm to KING 5 that Cetin was not a U.S. citizen, meaning legally he cannot vote. However, state records show Cetin registered to vote in 2014 and participated in three election cycles, including the May presidential primary.

Wonder if Weasel Comey still insists 'This is how you want an investigation to be run!' ?
In the latest bombshell from Congress’ probe into what’s looking more and more like an FBI whitewash (or coverup) of criminal behavior by the Democratic nominee and her aides, the Denver-based tech who destroyed subpoenaed e-mails from Clinton’s server allegedly lied to FBI agents after he got an immunity deal.

That’s normally a felony. As a federal prosecutor, Comey tossed Martha Stewart in jail for it and helped convict Scooter Libby for it as well. Yet the key Clinton witness still maintained his protection from criminal prosecution.
Comey is all upset because people are questioning his precious integrity.  Y'know, that thing the used for toilet paper?

Apparently the protesters rioted and vandalized and looted again last night in Charlotte.  By this point they should have the National Guard out- with ammo to use if necessary- and anyone doing this crap should be on their way to a cell as rapidly as possible.

'Peaceful protest' my ass; rioting thugs and thieves

The city of Charlotte has released a number of 911 tapes, including calls made from gridlocked motorists on Charlotte streets who feared for their lives as protests over the death of Keith Scott moved to block highways going in and out of the city. Dozens of vehicles were stopped on I-85 and other major thoroughfares. According to some of the motorists trapped on the streets, protesters jumped on cars, mobbed trucks, and threw rocks.

“I’m trapped,” one motorist told the 911 dispatchers. “They’re all in the street … Oh my God, they’re coming!” Screams could be heard in the background, according to local media who reviewed the tapes.

One family who had their window smashed by a rock was instructed by a 911 dispatcher to get to safety before pulling over to inspect the damage.  “I’m still stuck in this,” the driver told emergency services. “I would like to get out of it before I pull over.”

The dispatcher responded, “I don’t want you to stop there, period. Just follow traffic and get out of the area.” The dispatcher stayed on the line with the woman until she had reached a safe, lit parking lot.

And thieves as well as terrorists:
Even big rig truckers were unnerved by the melee, calling 911 to report that they were trapped in their trucks as looters opened their trailers and stole their cargo.  “They’re breaking into my truck, the mob out here,” one trucker told Charlotte police. “I can’t move. There’s a whole mob of people, I’m not kidding. Yep, they’ve taken everything. They’ve got the whole road blocked.”

Another trucker admitted to being terrified. “I’m so scared,” he said. “They’re just taking stuff and running with it. They’ve got the doors of the trailer open.”

Truckers also reported that rioters had started fires on the highway. That made a getaway in the truck impossible, and leaving the truck on foot too dangerous.

Further demonstration why asset forfeiture is nothing more than theft under color of law

For eight years, Michiganders Gerald and Royetta Ostipow have been fighting the seizure and forfeiture of hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of their property.

Last month they prevailed when a judge ordered the return of virtually everything that had been taken from them. But the Ostipows’ victory was short-lived, for they soon discovered that the Saginaw County Sheriff’s Office had sold their property years ago, while their forfeiture case was still being actively litigated.
Seems to me the Sheriff's Office committed at least one felony here.  And ought to be prosecuted for it.

Yes, yes, history and all that, but how does it taste?

“You can call us wrong, but don’t call us weasels. We are not weasels,” he told member of Congress. “We are honest people and … whether or not you agree with the result, this was done the way you want it to be done.”
A: Maybe 'we' are not weasels, but some of you damn sure are.
B: Some are honest people; not you, you bastard.
C: ...this was done the way you want it to be done.  In a pigs ass it was, you corrupt clown.

I present two more reasons to consider college,

outside a a few fields, to be a waste of time and money.  Unless you want your kid turned into a whiny, screaming bitch.
In an email obtained by Campus Reform, a university employee with the school’s student housing department writes to a resident advisor, who wishes to remain anonymous, to explain to him that he cannot use an image of a gorilla for a routine floor decoration.

“I think it would be best if your floor chose a different theme animal to be more inclusive,” Assistant Complex Director Dale Morrow wrote in an email at the start of this academic year. “First, gorillas represent a very masculine image, and I feel that this would not be inclusive to all of our residents on that floor.”
“Second, this animal could be triggering to some people as their [sic] are stereotypes that surround this animal,” he continued, noting that all the RA would need to change “is the picture and the words.”

And from Wisconsin,
A University of Wisconsin-La Crosse student had a serious complaint for his campus’ official “Hate Response Team”: he was “very upset” by a Harry Potter mural in a college dorm.

The depiction of this metamorphosis “represents our ideal society and everything I am trying to fight against,” wrote the offended student, whose name is redacted. “It represents white power. Man power. Cis power. Able power. Class power. ECT [sic] ect. I am angry that I know the people who put this mural up, and I am anger [sic] because I know the people who let this mural be put up. Like I said earlier, maybe I am being a little sensitive, but it is how I feel. This represents, to me, our society, and I do not want it up on this wall. Why do we need a BEFORE and AFTER?”
Why do we need a oversensitive whiny pussy screaming over a bloody Harry Potter character mural? 

One more hit in the cosmic shooting gallery

A ' meteor ' crashed into earth causing tremors and a huge "flash of light" in the sky, it has been reported.

The fireball was spotted at Turkey Beach and Emerald in Queensland, Australia, as hundreds of locals took the social media to report their houses shaking and a "burning light" in the sky.
At some point one of these is going to either impact on land in/near a city, or blow in the air close/directly above one, and it's going to be really messy.

One more thing before I go hide

"I am Moose, so piss off."

Things discovered

The grips I made for a pistol are just about right.

What load works in what is very variable.

And right now I've got a headache from Hello.  More later if my head doesn't split open.

The local purveyors of propellants have much better stock

than only a few months ago, but it's partly depending on who makes it: IMR, Winchester and Hodgdon are fairly well represented, but Alliant and Western aren't.

Which makes the political climate a bit important; if people get spooked and start buying everything in sight to stockpile again...

“The man is dead. He can’t vote. Somebody is cheating.”

More of that nonexistent vote fraud we're not supposed to worry about.

Hey, that money was to pay off the Iranians, this administration didn't give a damn about the hostages.

Yeah, offer someone an 'affordable' plan that causes you to go broke on deductibles before it'll help with anything, and they're not going to be thrilled with it.
