Weekend is here

Well, halfway over, and yes, new data's in

It was a .223

What they fired it in, I have no idea

Friday night; the snow and ice is over,

but still a bit wet, icky, and cold out there.  So,

Screw the whipping post, let's go to public hanging

A couple who fed their daughter an extreme vegan diet have admitted causing her serious injury. 

The mother and father, aged 32 and 34 respectively, who cannot be named for legal reasons fed the girl oats and rice milk. 

The girl's diet was so restricted that she developed rickets, a degenerative bone disease caused by malnourishment.
How malnourished?
This diet resulted in severe deficiencies in nutrients across the board for the infant, including a lack of calcium, phosphate, vitamin B12, vitamin A, iron and zinc.  

Her levels of vitamin D - which can cause bone disease if found to be too low - were 'undetectable'.

The infant had fractures scattered throughout her tiny body and her bones were so brittle doctors believed they could have been broken by 'normal handling'.

Public hanging sounds right.

Cruz just brought out a term limits bill:

Two terms Senate, three House. 

Push it.  And every jerk in Congress who's against it, make them say it out loud, and make them say WHY.

When the hippies of Boulder are telling you to shove it,

that should get your attention.

'Should'.  But won't, because you're dealing with people who think making honest people criminals for owning politically incorrect firearms is 'common sense gun control'.

Besides the lawsuits currently going on, wonder how this asshat and his friends will deal with it if the cops actually start enforcing this crap?
City attorney Tom Carr has acknowledged that enforcing the ordinance will be a challenge, telling the Boulder Daily Camera that “there’s no circumstance where we go door-to-door and ask people if they’ve violated the law.”
In other words "We want to make criminals of people, but we really don't want to have to arrest them.  Because people will get REALLY pissed at us."  And I imagine the cops are just loving the idea of being told "None of your fucking business.  Now get off my property."

There's what's in space, and what we don't know about

right here on the planet.
Archaeologists have harnessed sophisticated technology to reveal lost cities and thousands of ancient structures deep in the Guatemalan jungle, confirming that the Maya civilization was much larger than previously thought.

Experts used remote surveying technology to see through the thick canopy of forest, revealing more than 60,000 structures in a sprawling network of cities, farms, highways and fortifications. The extent of ancient Maya agriculture also stunned archaeologists, who said that the civilization produced food “on an almost industrial scale.”

And, as to the 'living in harmony and barely leaving a footprint' thing,
LiDAR was also used to reveal new details of the swampy valley around the Maya city of Holmul near Guatemala’s border with Belize. The LiDAR data show that the thousands of acres were drained, irrigated and converted into farmland, creating a landscape that archaeologists have compared to the central valley of California.

If the multiple universes theory is correct, then there may be one where some tribes figured out how to work and use iron; that would've put an interesting twist in what happened when the Europeans first arrived.

If you haven't read the Vorkosigan novels you won't get this,

but I've decided on a motto for the year:

For the Southern Poverty Lies Center to lose not only ears and tail

but its entire ass would do the country good.  And be a serious kick in the ass to the bigots and liars running it.

"I came here to escape from a shithole country.  Now I wish to make this country more like the shithole I escaped from."

So, on the eevillleee 'assault weapons' and standard magazine front compliance with the SAFE Act has been less than 15%; now on handguns in this county it's about 31%.  Reaction from Gov. Howler:
"There has been mixed signals coming from the Governor, who has said 'we want more gun legislation'. But we can't even get the gun legislation that we least one provision of it...complete," Kearns said. 

New 4 reached out to the Governor's office to ask when and how re-certification will be enforced. We did not hear back Wednesday.
A lot of sheriffs and police chiefs said when this crap was shoved through that they wouldn't enforce it; the state police have been dancing around it, especially in the counties not near NYeffingCity and Albany; Howler knows if he orders them to start actively enforcing it the result will be loud, profane, and aimed at him.  And he doesn't have the balls to do it.  And all the while honest people who own guns have this garbage hanging over them.

At some point the state authorities are going to decide to start arresting and jailing people over this, and it's going to get interesting.

More of that vote fraud we're told doesn't happen.
From Californicated, no surprise there.

And we're back to ignorant, idiot politicians passing laws on subjects they're ignorant of,

and they're too damned stupid to find out if the law can even be carried out before they vote on it...
As part of a sweeping package of gun control measures that became law this year, legislators moved to expand background checks to private gun purchases, in addition to sales at gun shops, or through other licensed dealers.
But in a memo sent to legislators last week, the department found that Vermont’s law enforcement agencies, unlike federally licensed firearm dealers, are not authorized to request the FBI to run checks through its National Instant Background Check System (NICS).
Bloody stupid, ignorant bastards.

Something I've been pondering for a while:

Cops who knowingly violate the law because they know they'll get away with it.

Prosecutors who knowingly break the law and legal ethics, and never fear punishment.

Judges who never punish them for it, or at most tell them they've been bad.

Politicians who, when caught lying, either gloss over it or get mad at you for catching them.

And every one of them bitch and moan because "People don't trust us/support us."

Do these people not realize what damage they've done and are doing?  Or do they just not care?

Considering the past history of socialists/communists and declaring people mentally deficient,

every time some leftist starts calling opponents mentally ill or insane, it makes me want to buy another box of ammo.  In case they decide I need 'treatment'.

The warped thought process that led to the perversion and weaponization of psychiatry in the Soviet Union can be traced back to the communist icon and thought leader Karl Marx. Marx propounded a spurious doctrine known as “polylogism” to justify stifling dissent. According to Marx, different classes of people had different structures in their minds. Thus, Marx declared the bourgeoisie to be mentally defective because they were inherently unable to comprehend Marx’s (allegedly) revelatory and progressive theories. Since they were, in a sense, insane, there was no valid reason for communists to “waste time” arguing with them. On the contrary, communists were justified in not only ignoring or suppressing bourgeois ideas but in liquidating the entire bourgeois class.

The practice of categorizing one’s enemies as “insane” became a ready tool of suppression in the Soviet state founded by Lenin and developed under Stalin. The USSR’s infamous secret police energetically wielded quack psychiatry as a club with which to destroy political dissidents. If you want more information about how the Soviets kidnapped and misused psychiatry, here is a link to a document that describes what American agents of the USSR were taught about psycho-political techniques in the late 1930s. (The provenance of the booklet is murky, and Soviet apologists have long tried to discredit it, but in light of numerous psychiatric abuses known to have been committed with the approval of the USSR’s rulers, the content of the book is highly plausible.)

Short version: All those guns people own aren't going to just evaporate,

or be turned in.  And you try that Australian or British Model Obama was so fond of talking about, the results would be bad.


One disagreement:
...252,443,229 records voluntarily input into the system by private manufacturers and wholesalers, each representing a unique gun serial number. That system has only been operational since 2000. Do we really think 252 million of the “300 million” guns in the country passed through the hands of those individual dealers since 2000? Not likely. By his take, it’s quite possible that the total number of guns is vastly under reported, and the true number is between 329 million and 660 million, with a reasonable guess being 413 million firearms. He could be wrong, but I find his argument compelling.
Having seen the numbers some people have worked out, I strongly suspect the number is on the high end.  Or a bit more.  I know people who own firearms made in the mid-1800's that still work; take care of things, and they last a loooong time.  I've also known people who will NOT buy a gun at a store, because paperwork: they're honest people, no criminal record, so private sales(in America) are legal, and they figure it's none of the damned business of the .gov what they own.*

*I suspect that some immigrants from places where Holy Mother Socialism has been the rule tend to feel the same way; once they're citizens and can legally own arms, were I one of them, I'd try to keep it off the books, too.

But it's somehow the fault of the Border Patrol, and us heartless bastards in general

Border authorities are referring 50 people a day for urgent medical care, including tuberculosis, flu and even pregnant women about to give birth, a top official said Monday, saying it’s unlike anything they’ve ever seen before.

Most of those in need of care are children, and a staggering 28 percent are under age 5, having been dragged along for the trip by parents who in many cases are hoping to use the children as a shield against speedy deportation from the U.S.
Every shithead activist who pushes them to come here, and bring the kids, has a hand in every death, rape, and kidnapping.  But their motives are pure, so don't blame them!

Probably because "We can't be one of the cool agencies if we don't

 have a SWAT team!"
...But another question raised by the GAO analysis is not answered. Some of those agencies, such as ICE, FBI, US Marshal Service, Secret Service, etc. need to be well armed on the roles of protecting the public. Other agencies such as the IRS and the NIH seem to be over-weaponized, a frightening concept for a government that is supposed to serve the people, not vice versa.
The NIH is National Institutes of Health, that one makes you wonder if they’ve gone from healing and health to something else. And the inventory information of the NIH was deemed too sensitive to include in a chart (see page 34). Think about that for a moment…Too Sensitive? Does the NIH have covert operations? Do they stop the spread of the flu with a gun? “Stop sneezing, or we’ll blow your brains out?” Give me a break.

And don't forget the friggin' Dept. of Education using armed agents to kick in doors and such.  At the wrong address.  Because 'investigation'.

After having spent quite a while kissing Sheriff Israel's ass

(because "He's been against armed teachers/the NRA/Stand Your Ground laws", etc.), this paper finally started some real reporting.  First(they did throw in all the defenses here as well) by saying "The new Governor should get rid of him", and now this.
Two decades after Columbine and five years after Sandy Hook, educators and police still weren’t ready for Parkland.
I haven't finished it, but so far it seems like a bunch of officials need their heads removed.  Including for this:
A campus watchman has a chance to stop gunman Nikolas Cruz before any blood is shed. But he doesn’t do it.
Security monitor Andrew Medina, an unarmed baseball coach, is riding in a golf cart and unlocking gates 20 minutes before dismissal. He sees Cruz walk through one of those unguarded gates with a rifle bag.
He recognizes Cruz as “Crazy Boy,” the former student that he and his colleagues had predicted most likely to shoot up the school. He radios another campus monitor/coach, but he does not pursue Cruz and does not call a Code Red to lock down the school.
Medina shouldn’t have been in that job – school investigators had recommended he be fired for sexually harassing students, but district administrators overruled them.
Wonderful bunch of people running things in Broward County, huh?
