If you want to know just what kind of people we're facing,

this should cover it

"Who cares about that 4th Amendment shit, and the 2nd doesn't count at all!  I want searches and seizures surveillance and executions to properly enforce legislation I want!"
With zero understanding of what'll happen to her and her friends when the precedent is used against them.

For that matter, I wonder if she has any historical understanding of what socialist utopias used this kind of thing to control people?  Nice company she wants to keep.

Amateur astronomer first to spot a supernova,

which is very cool.  However, their description of his job...
Victor Buso is a locksmith. He spends his days fiddling with locks and keys...
Fiddling.  Right.

"We don't understand why you're so mad at us,

we only care about the children!"
Documents released in December through litigation by school-choice advocates showed that lawyers with the American Civil Liberties Union and Disability Rights Wisconsin had prodded federal prosecutors to go after the program, which enables low- and moderate-income Milwaukee parents to use taxpayer-funded vouchers to send their children to private schools. Nearly 30,000 students participate in the program.

According to the documents, the liberal groups opposing vouchers coordinated media strategy with the feds and submitted questions that Justice turned around and posed nearly verbatim to Wisconsin education officials. In addition to suggesting that the program was violating the Americans with Disabilities Act by denying access to disabled kids, the groups promised to drum up additional complaints. Their efforts appear to be why Justice kept the inquiry open for four years even though federal and state officials asserted from the start that, even if the unproven charges were true, they were not legally empowered to remedy them in private schools.
"But we CAN screw people around and use our power this way.  For The Children."

Oh, this is going to work out well.

But Trudeau wants to welcome jihadists back to Canada...

It being rather difficult to have a conversation

with people who think you're a child murderer and terrorist, and who insist that first you must earn their respect by doing what they demand, the answer is simple:

No, we won't surrender a basic right because you disapprove.  No, we won't crawl to try to earn the 'respect' of people who despise us.  No, we won't crawl before people who want us dead.

Screw you.

As has been noted:
You demand we give up the 2nd Amendment.
Your move.
And be damned sure you want what happens when you try.

In case you're needing some ammunition in arguments with leftists,

gun bigots and hoplophobes, let's collect a few things.

Yes, Obama was lying* when he said "This doesn't happen in other countries."
We're not even at the top of the list.

Larry Correia's magnificent piece on the subject.

"You want to repeal the 2nd?  Then try it, you screeching clowns.  See what happens."

'6 Reasons Your Right-Wing Friend Isn’t Coming To Your Side On Gun Control'
Note: screeching that your(probably former)friend is a bloody-handed child murderer for not agreeing with you works just as well as calling him a racist for not liking Obama.

How to Create a Gun-Free America In 5 Easy Steps
Warning: even if you get through #4, 5 is going to be a bitch.  And you really won't like the side-effects.

By the way, while you're screaming about racists and such, consider the background of your gun-control ideas; you want to talk about racist and bigoted...

This very good piece by Kevin Baker.

These give a good start.

*Ignorance is also possible, but I doubt it.

I'm giving something a try

If you're looking for ammo, the Ammo.Com link under 'Gunny Stuff' in the sidebar now gets me a credit if you buy a bunch. 

So, being no less ammo needy than anyone else, take a look at their stuff if you're shopping around.

The failures of the authorities just keep piling up

It’s a move away from so-called “zero tolerance” policies that require schools to refer even minor misdemeanors to the police. Critics call it a “school to prison pipeline.”
Under a new program adopted by the Broward County School District, non-violent misdemeanors — even those that involve alcohol, marijuana or drug paraphernalia — will now be handled by the schools instead of the police.
Cruz was banned from carrying a backpack at school after bullets were found in his backpack. Cruz was expelled from MSD last year after a fight with his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend.

Apparently, at least in some cases, they consider starting a fight to be 'non-violent'.

Idiots.  Surrounded by idiots.

They bitch about being called fake news

when they do crap like this...

"You want fake news and flat-out lies?  CBS News is for you!"

Why is it the people who yell "RACIST!" the most

do the most hanging around with racists?

"...but for China, there was either some sort of misunderstanding or the country intentionally caused a scene."
Intentionally.  The wanted to see how far they could push.

"Spare mag: yea or nay?"

I come down on 'Yea', but you have to decide for yourself.

I was going to write something else on this, but I'm too bloody tired; maybe I can come up with some clever words on the subject tomorrow.

"Sweet Marx, Trump made it easier for mentally-ill people to buy guns!"

No, he didn't, you idiots.

Of course, part of the problem is the asshats think that owning or wanting to own a gun makes you unfit to have one.  They'd have fit very well in the Soviet Union psychiatric program.

It's February, and the weather goes back & forth;

which makes it nice to have some data to review if it's a not-so-nice evening.

And now, back to things more interesting than politics; more specifically

what I get to play with a bit.
No, it's not mine.  Dammit.  But I get to put some rounds through it.  We'll see how that goes.

The Professional Journalists of CNN

Call Ted Cruz names for 'not showing up to talk'.  Except he DID, and they didn't air it.


Not exactly the collusion with Russia story the Evil Party's been pushing, is it?
The Russian operatives sought to “promote discord in the United States and undermine confidence in democracy” by organizing the protests, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said Friday.

Mueller’s indictment confirms what legal representatives for both Facebook and Twitter told a Senate panel on Oct. 31 last year: that Russian operatives sought to harm America by undermining public confidence in President Trump’s election.

Georgia, what the hell has happened to you

that this hasn't already been dealt with?

The caring, compassionate left in full display again

Parent of a murder victim happens to have a Trump shirt on.  And gets blamed for the murder, along with the NRA, the Stupid Party in general, etc.

After the past few days of 'liberals' doing this, they can one and all go to hell.  And take their 'compassion' and 'caring' with them.

Professional Journalism...

Yell "White supremacist!" and they'll follow you anywhere.

Do ANY of these dickheads remember what being a 'reporter' was? 

More on the ethical people at the Do'J'

Bruce Ohr, the Department of Justice official who brought opposition research on President Donald Trump to the FBI, did not disclose that Fusion GPS, which performed that research at the Democratic National Committee’s behest, was paying his wife, and did not obtain a conflict of interest waiver from his superiors at the Justice Department, documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation show.
And I'm sure someone at the Do'J' will whine that talking about this is damaging to the good people at the agency.  Just like the asshats at the EffingBI whine about bad morale because people are talking about the crap they've been up to.

Hey, morons, try cleaning house in your own agency, then people won't have to talk about all the criminals, and unethical bastards you're working with.

Few things before I start loading

The school board of Bethel District needs its collective ass kicked.

Ah, the NYeffingTimes: run by asshats.

Rolling Stone settles with some of its victims, but some of the guilty got away with their crap.

More of the wondrous NHS that Obama & Co. want us all under.

What is it with Democrats hanging out with politically-correct racists?

I think that catches all that stuff up, catch you later.

I have a chance to try something out

It requires some .357 Mag ammo, which I'm short on.

To the press!

Nothing but theft under color of law,

and they're willing to say anything to try to prevent their theft being stopped.

And this crap:
Meanwhile, sending the proceeds of forfeiture to the state's General Fund would result in fewer busts of drug and stolen property rings. What incentive would local police and sheriffs have to invest manpower, resources and time in these operations if they don't receive proceeds to cover their costs?

Bastards.  Bastards and thieves.

When you find yourself threatening to find more reasons to put even more citizens in jail in order to protect your revenue stream, it's maybe time to take a step back and think about what you're doing.
Oh, they know what they're doing; and they don't want to be stopped.

Somewhere, ominous music is playing...

When Iceberg A68 calved off from Antarctica’s Larsen C Ice Shelf in July 2017, it exposed an entire underwater ecosystem that had been covered by the Delaware-sized chunk of ice for 120,000 years

Now, a team of scientists is set to travel to the remote Larsen C Ice Shelf in order to explore the 2,246 mysterious square miles that the trillion-ton iceberg left in its wake.

A Dillon story

I've got a Square Deal B press I picked up used, oh, eight or ten years ago.  I've loaded a bleepload of 9mm and .45acp with it since.  And, as you might imagine, it needed some work.

So I e-mailed Dillon and asked about getting it worked on.  "$67.95 to strip, clean, replace anything that needs it, lube, and adjust.  Includes shipping back to you.  You can send payment or we'll call when it's done."  So I packed it up and sent it, asking for the 'call when done'.

Less than three weeks later UPS dropped a box on the porch.  And the thing looks new, and is smoother than when I picked it up.  Charge sheet inside listing everything replaced and the final bill: $0.

'Nice' is understatement.

So, which one is lying this time: Rice or Comey?

We also learn from Grassley and Graham's letter that former FBI director and self-identified moral compass James Comey may have lied to Congress about this meeting with President Obama.
If Rice’s email is accurate, Comey may have seriously misled Congress about his meetings with Obama.
Dated June 8, 2017, Comey’s “Statement for the Record” provided to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, notes, “I have tried to include information that may be relevant to the committee.”
Comey clearly did not find the January 5, 2017 meeting to be particularly relevant.

In other words, on January 5, 2017, an Oval Office meeting occurred between then-FBI director Comey, the soon-to-be-former president of the United States (Obama), his soon-to-be-former Vice-President (Biden), then-National Security Advisor Susan Rice and soon-to-be Acting Attorney General Sally Yates–and Comey apparently viewed this meeting as irrelevant to congressional investigators.
I mean come on, people. This stinks to high hell.
(Yes, I know, it's probably both)

The noise about Flynn lying?  Slight problem with the narrative.

At some point, there's going to be B-52s flying low-earth-orbit missions.  Much like the Army will have a hovertank with a energy-beam main gun, but there'll still be a M2HB in front of the commander's hatch.

Well, that's interesting

Can get to Bookface, so found the ATT page and asked about the web problem. 
Quick response, "Please tell us a little more so we can fix this."
Describe the problem, including having tried a different browser.
Usually you'd get a 'We're working on it', this time not a thing.  This doesn't seem good.

Apparently the interwebs spiders are drunk this morning,

as there are holes in the webs.  Something major must be happening somewhere.

Damn, it's cold out there.

No, I don't care what it is in North Dakota, for here it's cold. 

Few better evenings come along to sit back and work on your studies.
