Since this has been a somewhat sucky year,

I'm going to close it with someone very pleasant: Kelly Brook

And below the fold,

And some more

Things to clear out tonight

There was a terrorist attack on gas lines in Colorado

with some markings left behind indicating Earth First! may have done it.  And for some reason a lot of our Major media has had little to say about it(imagine that).  Well, if they could ignore and then downplay arson, maiming, assaults, looting, some murders, and attempted murder, why would they have a problem downplaying/ignoring this?

Speaking of, this was in Comrade Mayor's NYeffingCity the other day

And if these people who thought they were about to die had run over a couple of the assholes while escaping, they'd be in jail.  Because NYeffingCity run by Comrade Mayor.  As Miguel notes As for the places where you can’t carry a gun, just stay the hell out of them.
I'd add "Stay out of places where self-defense is treated as a crime, if you can."

I need to work on my offhand shooting with rifle

Dry fire practice will help a lot, but I have a problem:
With heavier rifles, I need to do not just practice but some working out to help the muscles involved.  Which is a problem because some of my joints are so messed-up, which makes said working out a balance between 'what will strengthen things' vs. 'what might eff some of this worse'.

Getting old is easy.  Being old sucks.

And what crap is happening in your kids schools?

Their ethos holds that children shouldn’t have to read stories written in anything other than the present-day vernacular—especially those “in which racism, sexism, ableism, anti-Semitism, and other forms of hate are the norm,” as young-adult novelist Padma Venkatraman writes in School Library Journal. No author is valuable enough to spare, Ms. Venkatraman instructs: “Absolving Shakespeare of responsibility by mentioning that he lived at a time when hate-ridden sentiments prevailed, risks sending a subliminal message that academic excellence outweighs hateful rhetoric.”
Outsiders got a glimpse of the intensity of the #DisruptTexts campaign recently when self-described “antiracist teacher” Lorena Germ├ín complained that many classics were written more than 70 years ago: “Think of US society before then & the values that shaped this nation afterwards. THAT is what is in those books.”

And their definitions of 'racism, sexism', etc. have no relation to reality.  And will change whenever they find someone/something else to ruin.

Idiots, fools, and vandals.  And they're being given a say in how the schools work.

Maybe (formerly Great)Britain isn't totally screwed yet

Judges have insisted that freedom of speech includes the 'right to offend' in a landmark ruling which could help to turn the tide on 'woke' intolerance after a feminist who called a transgender woman a 'pig in a wig' and a 'man' was cleared.

Presiding over a case in the Court of Appeal, Lord Justice Bean and Mr Justice Warby said: 'Freedom only to speak inoffensively is not worth having.'

They added that 'free speech encompasses the right to offend, and indeed to abuse another'. The judgment from two senior members of the judiciary will set a precedent for future cases involving freedom of speech.

What horrible thing had she done to be arrested?
In February Ms Scottow, 39, was found guilty of persistently making use of a public communications network to cause annoyance, inconvenience, and anxiety to Stephanie Hayden, 48, between September 2018 and last May.
The horror!

And, of course, the people causing John Peel to spin in his grave had to be involved:
She had been arrested by three police officers in 2019 at her home in Pirton near Hitchin, Hertfordshire, in front of her daughter, 10, and son, 20 months. Boris Johnson later called it an abuse of power.
Because God forbid someone use unapproved language.  The cops won't arrest PC-protected assholes who threaten lives and attack people, but This Cannot Be Tolerated.

It's small, but it's a step.

Speaking of stupid, let us speak of the 'asymptomatic transmission' bullshit

Published in November in the scientific journal Nature Communications, the paper was compiled by 19 scientists, mainly from the Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhan, but also from scientific institutions across China as well as in the U.K. and Australia. It focused on the residents of Wuhan, ground zero for COVID-19, where 9,899,828 people took part in a screening program between May 14 and June 1, which provided clear results as to the possibility of any asymptomatic transmission of the virus.

Asymptomatic transmission has been the underlying justification of lockdowns enforced all across the world. The most recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) still states that the virus “can be spread by people who do not have symptoms.” In fact, the CDC claimed that asymptomatic people “are estimated to account for more than 50 percent of transmissions.”
However, the new study in Nature Communications, titled “Post-lockdown SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid screening in nearly 10 million residents of Wuhan, China,” debunked the concept of asymptomatic transmission. It stated that out of the nearly 10 million people in the study, “300 asymptomatic cases” were found. Contact tracing was then carried out and of those 300, no cases of COVID-19 were detected in any of them. “A total of 1,174 close contacts of the asymptomatic positive cases were traced, and they all tested negative for the COVID-19.

Look for this all to be referred to as 'right-wing fake news sites/organizations'.  Constantly.  Because it screws with the preferred narrative.

Zuckerbitch's 'independent fact checkers' strike again.

Passed along a joke post about the Wuhan vaccine turning people into zombies, and OH NOES!!

Really, Zuckerbitch?  THIS is what your 'fact checkers' do?
