Tonight, I remembered

to get the study materials together

It probably should be "Northam doubles down to please his masters

in the Party"

I've been hearing rumors of the authorities setting up cell-phone blocking systems.  Which, if I'm not mistaken, is a serious violation of federal law; if they're doing it, the FCC needs to nail them to the wall for it.

Tied up last night, and I forgot

to run the data dump.

Couple of years ago I tried some new oil and cleaner

called Metcor 57.  The bore cleaner seems to work pretty well, and the Bore Shield did a good job on preventing rust.  Their Green Gun Oil is pretty slick, but it doesn't seem to hold up well in use, in my try of it.

Yeah, this is very late; I lost track of time.  And I can't try the oil again because I managed to spill it.  Most of the 'green' and 'biodegradable' oils I've heard of haven't held up well, seems that some type of petroleum-based works/holds up better.

While Gov. Blackface and most media are losing their minds over a rally

that's happened every year for a long time with no problems(and Gov. Blackface may well have violated state law with his emergency order), and hinting or outright stating that the gathering is a bunch of National Socialists(the better to slime them), they mostly don't seem to have much to say about this clown still working(last I heard) for the Sanders campaign.

Of course, the good Sanders guy was only talking about going all Soviet on anyone guilty of BadThink, and a lot of the media would have no problem with that.

Oh, the left will have the knives out for him for this

“It saddens me”, he says,” to see the white man beating his breast over and over, too emasculated to put up any resistance to people who’ve come to threaten him on his own doorstep”. He believes that a toxic mix of guilt, “human rightsism”, political naivety and crass ignorance of History have a debilitating effect on Europeans’ capacity to fight the invasion.

He accuses the corrupt African leaders of destroying the lives of hundreds of millions of human beings in all impunity but is equally critical of the ideologues who are paving the way for them. They should stop blaming it all – slavery, the slave trade, colonialism, neocolonialism, and racism – on a forever repentant Europe, which now has to carry the burden of this mass immigration to atone for its supposed sins against Africa. 

This in particular:
Regarding slavery, Tigori explains that in 1324, almost 150 years before the first European caravel arrived on the African Atlantic coast, Malian king Kankan Moussa made a pilgrimage to Mecca with almost 10 tons of gold and thousands of slaves that he sold to the Maghreb, Egypt and Arabia.

Even earlier, the sale of slaves through the desert caravans made Ghana prosper until the 11th century AD.

Something else that is not always known, insists Tigori, is that at the time of the great discoveries of the 15th century, contacts between Europe and black Africa were very peaceful. To wit, diplomatic relations were established between Portugal and the Kongo kingdom; the latter got Christianized and sent its children to study in Lisbon beginning in the 16th century.
