And how the seventh has rolled around again

So enjoy, I'm too tired to come up with something snappy to say

No surprise; murderers never like being identified

and possibly called to account.  They may disguise it as 'national health service', but they're still murderers.  And because it's the NHS, most of the leftist media loves them no matter what.
The Lords and Commons Family and Child Protection Group, which conducted the study, drew on 17 cases of about 600 to hand. New cases continue to be reported, and one of the most recent involves an 89-year-old Indian grandmother who died this month, 11 days after fluids were withdrawn. The family went to the Court of Protection to halt the actions of the doctors but a judge sitting in secret decided it was not in the patient’s ‘best interests’ to receive continued nutrition and hydration. The Bland judgement of 1993 redefined food and fluid as ‘treatment’ so they could be taken away by Airedale NHS Trust. Neuberger was severely critical of the broad interpretation of this legal precedent to mean that doctors could starve and dehydrate their patients to death whenever they predicted, rightly or wrongly, that death was imminent.

Yet the Court of Protection always seems to side with the doctors who want to kill, and this latest case provides another example of why this sinister institution is Orwellian to the point of having a name which contradicts its actual purpose. It was the same court which in effect sanctioned and covered up the killing of a 19-year-old woman in September.

Just as in the case of ‘ST’, the court in this latest case denied this family the publicity they sought by imposing restrictions on the identity of the grandmother, the staff ‘treating’ her and even the hospital where she spent her final days. Such tyrannical edicts prevent public scrutiny of matters of life and death, precisely where accountability and transparency are most vital in any normally functioning democratic society.

"But if they die, we don't have to pay for further care! It's better for the system!"
Yet the media still hero-worships the NHS and sympathises with campaigners and celebrities who want to change the law to give doctors more power to kill by assisted suicide and euthanasia.

When such horrendous cases first came to light, they were considered so scandalous they could not be ignored, moving the Government ostensibly to accept all 44 recommendations of More Care, Less Pathway.

What followed after 2014 was a classic establishment stitch-up in which the LCP was repackaged and rebranded with replacements perpetuating errors central to the initial lethal dysfunction – imaginary prognoses of death, anticipatory prescribing of drugs via syringe drivers, and the withdrawal of food and fluids following a ‘best interest’ team decision.

Because "We know best, peasants, now shut up or you'll be arrested for causing problems!"

It being the sixth day of the week again,

I bring you this installment of the regular distraction from serious matters

And, once again, our Professional Journalists don't report some things

that don't fit the Preferred Narrative™.
Yet Moreno’s own writings on Telegram, which she posted under the handle “Die Israel,” have been ignored. The ADL paused from its defamation of defenders of Israel who aren’t doctrinaire leftists long enough to take notice of them, but the establishment media, as dedicated as ever to concealing anything that might portray Islam in a negative light, passed them by. Moreno, noted the ADL, “expressed support for a range of antisemitic, anti-Zionist and extremist beliefs and praised U.S.-designated terrorist groups, including Hamas and Hezbollah.”

And that was just the beginning. Moreno also referred to Osama bin Laden as “uncle” and “made several posts in which she expressed a desire to kill Jews and wage jihad.” These included one on Oct. 21, 2023, when “she posted a video of herself shooting at a target that included a drawing of a Star of David.” Then on Dec. 23, 2023, she wrote: “I always knew I had a purpose to do for Islam and Christianity. We must all come together Christians need the heart that they had back in the day back in the revivals of the old age. But this time to kill all Jews. #warjihad #mywarjihad.”

So we seem to have a nutcase who was fixated on Islam and hating Jews.  Gee, I wonder why that wouldn't be considered news we should know about?

And I wonder if any of said Professionals have considered that when people find out what they're hiding, it erodes more of any remaining trust in them?  

Well, that was interesting

Today had a chance to try something:
The original Springfield Trapdoor rifle in .45-70 was designed for a 405-grain bullet.  In Mike Venturino's book, and a couple of other references, some have said that at longer distances they only had good accuracy using a 500-grain bullet.  So I loaded a few with a round-nose 500-grain to try out.

Apparently that only works with some Trapdoors.  On the one I was shooting those bullets were starting to keyhole at 30 yards(indoor range).  Switched to some 405-grain loads, and nice round holes.  So either the rifling pitch in this(1 in 22" according to what I've read) is not enough to stabilize this bullet in this rifle, or there's something else that causes it to not like that one.

A: I very much hope this holds to be true

And B: Faster, please.
Results from phase two clinical trials at UT Southwestern Medical Center showed that a suspension of gold nanocrystals taken daily by patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and Parkinson's disease (PD) significantly reversed deficits of metabolites linked to energy activity in the brain and resulted in functional improvements. The findings, published in the Journal of Nanobiotechnology, could eventually help bring this treatment to patients with these and other neurodegenerative diseases, according to the authors.

Don't be happy it was only one of the Squat,

the others just weren't willing to stick their necks out.  Apparently saying "Rape is no problem as long as the right people are raped" was a little too far for them to go publicly.

Of course they do: they want everything else you have,

why not your pets?  After all, EVERYTHING hurts Gaia, so away with your critters!

These people hate humanity and anything that makes people happy.

A Valentine's Day card


In which Colorado Democrats state "Screw the economy, and screw all those jobs,

We Are Saving Gaia!

I swear, these people have lost what brain cells they had.

Well, China is run by communists who used Paul Ehrlich's 'science'

to design their 'one child' policy, so no wonder the place is screwed.
Of course, a lot of places have had childbirth collapses due to "You can have it all, as long as you don't have a family!" crap being pushed on women.

Corrupt, backstabbing crapheads,

and those are their good parts.
"Back in 2019, Democrats articulated a novel theory of impeachment, based on Trump’s refusal to spend money from the USAI—Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative," Vance wrote in a piece for The American Conservative. "Five years after impeaching Trump for refusing to spend money on Ukraine, they have drafted a new law that again requires Trump to spend money on Ukraine. If he negotiates an end to the war, as he has promised to do, they will undoubtedly argue that he has broken the law. We are nearly a year away from an election that could give Trump the presidency, and Ukraine-obsessive Republicans have already given the Democrats a predicate to impeach him."

Throw in that most of the Beltway Republicans hate Trump too, and would love to be rid of him, even if it helps trash the country further.

It's amazing what happens when the story doesn't fit the Preferred Narrative™

Shooting at a church.  But the shooter is female, may have claimed to be trans, and had 'Free Palestine' on the firearm.  And used her own kid as a shield.  Really doesn't fit the things they like to report on.

It's one of those things where most people think "What the hell are you talking about?",

while a few people stir up noise.

I'm speaking of the 'upset' about a singer named Taylor Swift, who's currently seeing a football player, and she's supposedly some big political thing as well.*

This is reminding me of the supposed upset by conservatives when Occasional-Cortex let out that video of her dancing on a roof in college, and we were suddenly bombarded with "All those nasty conservatives are upset and saying bad things about her over this!", when pretty much everyone I knew and knew of said "What?  What video?  From college?  Who cares?"

Speaking of much ado about nothing...

*As a general rule, I don't care what- or who- some celebrity is doing unless they somehow mess with my life, and that includes this BS.

If you're Jewish, and you trusted Biden & Co.

to stand by you and Israel even if it cost some votes, you're a fool.  The Evil Party either doesn't give a damn about you, or actively wants you gone.
