You really should probably call your senator

and tell him not just “no”

BUT “ABSOLUTELY FUCKING HELL NO” 

Seriously. GO HERE. Read. Follow the links (they are legit, I already followed ’em). But go see for yourself. Don’t believe me. Seriously. Take the time to research this. It is important.


The “National Defense Bill” Bill number S. 1867. Take the time to learn about it.

Please  understand that the Udall amendment is a nice try, but really won’t do it. Better to start over with a bill that leaves no doors open for misuse.

Then call your senators. Tell em “no”. (If you aren’t sure who your senator is, or how to contact them, I have a handy link at the top of my sidebar, or you can just go HERE to find out.)


And then clean yer heater. Practice with it too. ‘Cause if this passes, someday yer likely gonna need it. 

Better to die on your feet than live on your knees.  

And if this passes, then they have the power to make you choose. 


Which way will you choose?

I know which way I will.

DB Cooper

lives….

4 decades ago he jumped out of the back of a 727 with $200,000.

and disappeared.

no one knows, for sure, what happened after that.

His caper has completely stumped the FBI, to this day (not that they had their “A” team on the case, it appears (The behavior of the feebles is much like my experience with them, fumbling at best) and there are may issues with their investigation.

Some of his money was found years later. But no one knows if it was buried or washed downstream…and if so, from where. There is a lot of empty (and desolate)spaces in that area, and so far, no one has found any more money….or him. If they did, then they haven’t spent it either…. as no other bills with the serial numbers from the money given to Cooper have ever been used, as far as anyone knows.

The fact remains that no one knows for sure, and no one has ever been caught.  

(I meant to post this on the 24th, but got caught up in the festivities and forgot) 

Coincidence?

I just finished reading  “John M. Browning, American Gunmaker” today.

No big deal, except that, as Tam points out, today is the anniversary of his death.

I gotta tell you, if the history is right, and I have no reason to believe it is not, the man was a genius. 

No one else has so many designs to his name. Winchester bought every design they could of his rifles (until they foolishly pissed him off) JUST TO KEEP THEM OUT OF THE HANDS OF COMPETITORS, even if they never produced them.

And he accomplished this feat in a tiny shop, using basic tools and only after seeing the design in his head did he put pen to paper.

And lets not forget his machine gun designs, nor his automatic pistol designs (especially his 1911), nor his shotgun designs.

Without his cooperation and licensing, the firm of Fabrique Nationale would likely not exist. 

The more I learn about this man, the more impressed I become.

What would/cou;d he do today, with better steels, modern polymer, and better machining?

One wonders.

So hats off. Take a moment. If you shoot, realize that you either own one of his designs, or own a firearm that was derived from one of his creations.

RIP JMB.

And thank you.

And this was just to save a few bucks.

All of you folks who think civilization will survive a serious SHTF scenario are not thinking things clearly.

I am here to tell you that when things go all pear shaped that everything is going to go completely apeshit when people are unrestrained by the threat of punishment  from the local constabulary and the courts.

So what do you think is going to happen when people are hungry….or when they have children crying because their bellies are bloated by the fact that they haven’t had anything to eat for a week? Or when they are cold and their clothing is wet or worn out….and you have food and are warm and dry?

People can’t help (some of them at least) acting like animals to save a dollar or two at a Black Friday sale. They attack each other, fight, kick and claw each other. They use force and weapons to get head.

What do you think those people (and others of their culture) are going to do when things get serious?

I guarantee you they won’t be singing “Kumbayah”.

They are going to try to take you shit, because they spent any money they had on a big screen TV and an X-Box when you were saving. Now you have it and they need it. What do you think they are gonna do?

What caliber

For Drones?

I see a whole new industry here.

Maybe self destructing projectiles…say that burst at altitude if you miss?
Special shotgun shells?

How much do you lead ’em?

Thankful

I am thankful for so many things.

I am thankful that I live in a country that is so rich, that even though I am not “rich” in this country, I am richer than most (98+%) of the people in this world. I am thankful that I live in a country that is so prosperous that this is true. A country that is protected by a Constitution that, despite being stepped on by many people and politicians still makes this country the greatest, freest, most stable and secure country on the planet 

I am thankful that I have friends and family that support me, believe in me, and respect my beliefs, no matter how foolish they think those might be. Friends that would drop everything for me, give me (literally) the shirt off their backs. Who would post bail without question. Who are good enough friends that if I asked for help moving a body at night, would do so without question.  (then help me get a lawyer)

I am especially thankful that my friend of many years has become someone very special…a lover and companion as well as a friend. Who has done more to calm my soul and make me look forward to a future. Who has caused me to believe that life is worth living, not merely enduring.

I have many, many other things to be thankful for, but if I listed them all, you’d get tired of reading and/or fall asleep.

What are you thankful for?

Thank you, IRS

So a few months ago, I got a letter from the IRS. Seems that they could not find a form that my partner and I had filed when doing our partnership return.

No big deal, we sent a second copy…Which they promptly misfiled (or something) as well as the first one.

We next next knew that they had misfiled the second one when we got a letter stating that we had now been assessed fines of $995 (each) for failing to file the forms in a manner that they could not misfile…

So, for the past few months, we have been waiting while they “investigated”…

They finally sent us a letter stating that they had decided to “remove the penalty” … After only 3 months of investigation.. Seems that they found the forms…Of course, they haven’t apologized or anything for making us worry while they took their time investigating their own incompetence. I mean… 3 months?

Were it not for them, I’d have been able to spend the money I was holding in reserve (in case they  decided to screw me)  on that 1933 Argentine contract Colt 1911 with 200 rounds of original metric headstamp ammo (in the original box) at the Nappannee gunshow. Instead, I kept the money just in case…..

I can’t wait for Obamacare……
