Saturday, and pretty sure I'll live

Fever done, not as stuffed-up, aches down.  Things that had to be done today, so pretty worn out.  But, despite all, the data did make it in

And if the deputy had been killed, the 'sanctuary' asshats would've been just fine with that;

after all, she was part of the oppressors, or something.
The illegal immigrant killed Sunday in a shootout with a California cop had been deported three times and arrested and released over ICE's objection on several occasions -- including cases involving the very department whose officer took him down in a dramatic exchange caught on her body cam.
Immigration officials said Thursday that the shooting and the man’s death could have been prevented, but California’s state law prohibited them from arresting the Mexican citizen with a long rap sheet and multiple deportations.
'long rap sheet', wonder what that might entail?
prior arrests for DUI, resisting arrests and possession of a firearm. There was a warrant for his arrest at the time of the shooting.
Yeah, I'll bet the department is real happy about this 'protect the illegals from ICE' crap.

Friday, still a bit crappy, so I'm putting this up early; so

straight to the data

Found out there's a company in Australia that makes

a pointed jacketed bullet for .310 Cadet.  And some people get very good accuracy with it.

But you can't get them here; exporting them from Australia is apparently a first-class bureaucratic nightmare.

Ah, Benchmade, and I really wanted one of your knives

The Oregon City PD posted this:
You can guess how well that went over.

Then came this:
No, that doesn't seem to be helping.  Among other comments being "You bastards can't afford an angle grinder to do it yourself?"

Yes, a bad couple of days for Benchmade, and the PD isn't real happy either

And then someone did some digging and found that Benchmade has largely- maybe only- given money to Democrats.  Which, in Oregon, pretty much means 'People who want to ban guns.  And then go after knives, because they want to be like Britain.

Yeah, this is going to end well for Benchmade.

I had planned on loading today, but

fever and aches probably aren't a good match with making ammo, so.

Probably not a good idea to fill out my tax forms, either.

And I'd almost kill for a #2 combo from Whataburger

Because this is all I've got energy to do

Crimson Trace has been heard from

Couple of days ago, on their Fecesbook page, got a "We're working through the 'contact us' messages as fast as we can".

This morning, got a 'Call this number' e-mail.

Yes, the grip is out of warranty(not surprised, I just couldn't remember for sure).  However, there's an upgrade program, and if I want to can get a replacement for a discount.

So that's been dealt with.  Just took a lot longer than it seems it should have.

I'm a bit under the weather, so tab clearing

Treat the bastards like any other perjurer, and you won't have to keep them on a 'not trusted' list.

Any official who thinks that 'speaking in a derogatory way' about an investigation is grounds to violate laws and try to get rid of an elected official, should be fired.  And prosecuted for the laws they broke.

The Evil Party seems very muted about holding a Stupid Party clown to account when he's been helpful to them.

Only some hate crimes are worth attention, it seems.

Whiny 'feminism' on display

About that "Germany powered the whole country for a day on renewables!" meme,

so what?
Germany has installed solar and wind power to such an extent that it should theoretically be able to satisfy the power requirement on any day that provides sufficient sunshine and wind. However, since sun and wind are often lacking – in Germany even more so than in other countries like Italy or Greece – the country only manages to produce around 27% of its annual electric power needs from these sources.
Doesn't matter if it was enough on this or that day, it cannot do it reliably.  Some days way too little, some days way too much.  Which costs.
Production is often too high to keep the network frequency stable without disconnecting some solar and wind facilities. This leads to major energy losses and forced power exports to neighboring countries (“load shedding”) at negative electricity prices, below the cost of generating the power.

In 2017 about half of Germany’s wind-based electricity production was exported. Neighboring countries typically do not want this often unexpected power, and the German power companies must therefore pay them to get rid of the excess. German customers have to pick up the bill.
And on.  And on. 

And let's not forget something that the 'green power' people generally do not want to talk about:
Perhaps more important, the amount of land, concrete, steel, copper, rare earth metals, lithium, cadmium, hydrocarbon-based composites and other raw materials required to do this is astronomical. None of those materials is renewable, and none can be extracted, processed and manufactured into wind, solar or fossil power plants without fossil fuels. This is simply not sustainable or ecological.
Reading this reminded me to do some digging around on the size of the foundation needed for these things.  There's not a set size, because the local ground and weather conditions greatly influence how they need to be made/how big, but you're talking about a LOT of concrete and rebar for each one.  All of which needs to be made, and transported.

Throw in building a road- and it needs to be a good one- to each site so you can move in all the materials and parts, and the machinery needed to put them together...

Wonder who decided it was (metaphorically) time to whack the Clintons?

And why?  Really couldn't happen to a nicer guy, but why now?

Gov. Howler strikes again.

But hey, it's only taxpayer's money.  And it went to a good place(Cuomo & Co.'s pockets for who knows how much of it).  So who cares?

Of course, Gov. Howler's "We Will Have Green Energy!" shtick took a hit, which will bother the thin-skinned bastard no end.  Bet the taxpayers are wishing that was the only thing that took the hit.

Powdered baby tissue capsules.  More 'traditional medicine'.  I refuse to write further, because I really don't need my blood pressure to spike to that level.

There's a play on.  There's a duel on stage.  Someone yells "GUN!" and-
San Francisco.  Need I say more?
