When commies slip

and let you know what they actually want
Gee, thinking people aren't 'fit to vote' because of their skin color, I think there's a term for that.

And I wonder what this asshat plans to do with anyone who won't 're-educate' correctly?  Maybe a nice gulag somewhere?

A warm, rainy night in August

Which has its good points; it's been pretty dry for a few weeks.  So since a lot of people have to be indoors,

Tab clearing

Gabbard was first, wonder if any of the other Democrats have the balls to dig further into Harris's past as prosecutor and AG?

Speaking of, 'routine website redesign'

The language police are hard at work.

This kind of crime level in another country would probably qualify you to apply for asylum.

About damned time.
This isn't the first time the Navy JAG office- and NCIS, for that matter- have been caught in crap like this, and it needs to be cleaned up.  And out.

From the people who scream "RACIST! RACISM!!"

about anyone and anything that they disagree with...
“The president always plays the race card when he’s having a bad news cycle. It’s easier to call people names when you don’t have anything else to point to.”
“He would love nothing more than to divide our country based on race, religion, gender orientation or immigration status,” Omar said, “because this is the only way he knows he can prevent the solidarity of us working together across all of our differences.”
From people who work hard to divide everyone along those lines.

Amazing, isn't it?

The end result of the stripping and oiling

That stock varnished
After stripping

After oiling
and assembled
Looks a lot better now

Saying "History: it be Messy" just barely begins to cover it.

Ancient Greeks artists could have travelled to China 1,500 years before Marco Polo’s historic trip to the east and helped design the famous Terracotta Army, according to new research. 

The startling claim is based on two key pieces of evidence: European DNA discovered at sites in China’s Xinjiang province from the time of the First Emperor in the Third Century BC and the sudden appearance of life-sized statues.
“By systematically examining the First Emperor’s main tomb and subsidiary burials we have discovered something more important even than the Terracotta Army.” The mitochondrial DNA samples revealed Europeans had settled down in China and died there during the time of the First Emperor and even before then.

Ah, Friday, with a slight chance of rain

Which would be nice.  But rainy or dry and hot, there's data to go through

 put together a list

of gun and ammo laws by state.

As usual with any such list, good idea to confirm this if you're going to/through/live in a state, just in case something has changed since they put it together.

Daughter thinks I have a brownie with a bad sense of humor

in the house.  If so, and he's responsible for that punch disappearing, his ass is in trouble.

Pelosi is a vile bitch

And the second part of my question is this -- if you need to go home tonight and line up your babies as you say, and your grandbabies, which one of them could you look in their eyes today, and tell them that they're expendable for another foreign person to have an a nicer life? Which one would you look to say, you, my child, are expendable for someone else to come over here and not follow the law and have a nicer life?
The response:
...And so I pray for you. I pray for you. Again, we all pray that none of us has to experience what you have experienced. So thank you for channelling your energy to help prevent something like that from happening. But I do want to say to you, that in our sanctuary cities, our people are not disobeying the law. 

These are law-abiding citizens, it enables them to, to be there without being reported to ICE in case of another crime that they might bear witness to.
Illegal aliens.  They're breaking the law just by being there.  But that doesn't count.

And she actually called them CITIZENS...

Vile, soulless bitch.

This idiot decision won't stand,

but I'm sure the judge feels very virtuous about it.

Violates the Heller decision and others, and full of bullshit like
She decided that semi-automatic rifles should be deemed “dangerous and unusual weapons” that are used in military service, not civilian homes, and therefore not protected by the Second Amendment.

In her ruling, Staton “cited congressional findings that semi-automatic rifles have a rate of fire, 300 to 500 rounds per minute, that makes them ‘virtually undistinguishable’ from machine guns, and that they are the ‘weapons of choice’ for gangs, hate groups, and ‘mentally deranged persons bent on mass murder,'” the San Francisco Chronicle described.
Californicated at work.

The left must be crapping their pants over this

Carried by protesters in Hong Kong:

The PRC must be having conniptions over both, as well.

Tab clearing

PROM AG: "The court should not hear this case, because if these people were of average intelligence they would have properly understood what I did."
Because changing the law by fiat is how it's supposed to work.  If you think you're a noble among commoners.

Yes, Antifa is a terrorist organization.

This is one real idiot with a badge.  So, we have shooting when he shouldn't have, compounded with lying on a sworn statement.  Unfortunately, the chances of him being prosecuted for either are about zero.

Professional Journalists.

"We need to make all those people stop driving."

Because the bad results are always the fault of the US.

 “If we reach a point at which our elites — almost all of whom have college degrees, and almost all of whom credit those degrees as the reason for their success — begin to disdain and dismiss those who do not have degrees, we will reach a point at which we have created a de facto cultural underclass. In a nation premised upon equality, this would be a disastrous social development.”
 Got news for you, guy: we're already there.

And if whites followed her demands,

she'd be screaming 'RACISTS!' at the top of her lungs.
In sum, Pressley just outlined the classic anti-Enlightenment mindset: we are all permanent captives of our superficial race, religion, and sexual orientation. We must at all times think, act, and speak in such tribal fashion—and do so monolithically and collectively, in adopting the party line as set down by such elites as those like Pressley herself.

Blacks who oppose affirmative action, or Muslims who recognize Israel, or “queers” whose sexual preferences are incidental, not essential to their personas are thus declared not authentic and thus not to be welcomed by Pressley into the new racialist Democratic Party.

In practical terms, Pressley assumes that whites, reportedly about 70 percent of the population, tune her logic out. That is, they should never take her own racist advice and vote en masse according to their superficial shared skin color. If they did, the 55 percent of actual voters who are white in her otherwise minority-majority congressional district might never have elected someone who, according to her own rationale, is not part of their own tribe.

Long, hard weekend

And I still ache.  Lots of things I need to work on, but none of it makes me want to get off my ass right now.

A fine example of having it both ways:

the FOP clown and the asshat Mayor.
Murray was there to defend the four Chicago Police officers fired by the Police Board for covering up for Jason Van Dyke, the officer convicted of second degree murder for shooting Laquan McDonald.

He was arguing that “nobody worked together to form a conspiracy” and the four officers got a raw deal from the Police Board.
“It was not appropriate for me to say that out loud,” Lightfoot said.

Is the mayor planning to apologize to Murray or to the union with which she is now attempting to establish a dialogue and needs to negotiate a new police contract?

“I think I just did. I think I said I shouldn’t have said that out loud,” she said.

Is the mayor sorry she said it or is she sorry the derogatory remark got picked up on a hot mic?

“I’m sorry that I said it out loud,” she said.
