The damage done to America may be permanent

When you've lost the law-abiding:

I now see the FBI as a terrorist organization, with decades of doing to American citizens of what they are now doing to Trump. I don’t buy into the refrain, 99% of agents are saints and would never do what Comey did. I now believe not only might they do that they are TRAINED to do that. If an FBI agent should ever show up at my door I would look at him or her as the worst agents of China, Russia or Osama bin Ladin. The LAST thing I would do is trust them to want the best for America. I ABSOLUTELY see them as evil and against law and order. 
Why shouldn’t I? Barr and Wray are convincing me American intelligence agencies are allowed to breaks laws on a whim and KNOW they will NEVER be held accountable. As far as I’m concerned the American intelligence services are the worst travesty to be unleashed on humanity and should be dissolved. I NEVER was a radical, and now thanks to Barr and Wray, I have no choice.

I would say the anger at Barr is somewhat misplaced, but only somewhat, given that we have seen example after example of lawbreaking that would never be allowed by us common folks, but politically connected criminals are walking around free.

It took decades to get this bad.  It may never get better.

Years ago, my dad had me read a book

The Soldier's Load and the Mobility of a Nation.  It was a no-bullshit look at how much a fighting man can carry and still be effective.  It was first printed in 1950.  I still have my copy, sitting on my bookshelf.  It expounded on how much gear a troop carried in WWII and what got thrown away in order for the troop to be able to fight.

We ain't learned shit in seventy years.

According to research conducted by Marine Corps Capt. Courtney Thompson at the Naval Postgraduate School, the most a Marine should be stuck carrying into the fight is a comparatively measly 58 pounds. While that may sound like a lot for your average Sunday hiker, for America's warfighters, that's a figure that seems impossibly low for today's combat operations.

It's not uncommon to see 150 pound loads on Soldiers these days.  My basic kit in Afghanistan was 62 pounds - IBA, helmet, weapon, 210 rounds.  That was just the stuff I wore, and didn't include my ruck.  And I was one of the lightest loads I saw, given that my job was running around with a Chaplain and not carrying the baseplate of a mortar or the spare barrel for a 240B. 

No, I don't have any answers.  Nobody does.  The fighting force today is generally better fit, more prepared and better trained.  It's also a fact that testosterone levels have dropped through the generations which in turn affects muscle and how much a man can carry. 

This is the point where I shrug and go "WTF?"

The good news the media doesn't want you to hear

Ignore the panic pornography.

The amount of information withheld from the public is both obscene and horrific. There are plenty of reasons for Americans to be optimistic about the experience with COVID-19 and our ability to develop rational public policy to deal with it. These policies should protect the vulnerable and let the rest of the country live their normal lives.

The mis-information put out by the "experts" should result in said "experts" getting tarred and feathered.

Maybe the reason Americans hold the media in contempt...

Is that with a few exceptions, the media is nothing but garbage people holding garbage degrees working for garbage organizations in service to a garbage political party.

A major survey came out this week showing deep distrust in the media, and then a top producer at MSNBC and a recently deposed opinion editor from the New York Times aired their own biting critiques. The message from all three is that the media has forfeited professional standards and ethics. The message is correct.

Every day I think I couldn't hate the mainstream media any more than I do.  And every day they prove me wrong.

The EPA, fucking over Americans for decades

And then covering it up.  The EPA needs to be destroyed.


The regional office of the federal agency did a number of dishonest and possibly illegal things in and around Yakima, Washington, over the last decade that put local dairy farms out of business. More farms will be driven under if the EPA’s cover-up of its actions is allowed to stand, as activists will be able to press faulty claims in court by citing the agency’s supposed authoritativeness.


I'm old enough to remember the Alar Scare that junk scientists and the government used to shut down apple orchards all across Washington State.  I spoke with many former orchard owners who had been put out of business by that bullshit.  History repeats itself.

The EPA needs to be abolished.

Just a reminder

Courtesy of Kim du Toit:  Modern university degrees are about as worthwhile as toilet paper.  It's a scam.  Every time you hear some tenured idiot screech about "for-profit colleges", just remember that they are ALL "for profit".

Cholesterol meds don't do jack squat.

And cholesterol itself isn't all that bad for you, even the LDL.  Yeah, yeah, I know, BUT DOCTORS!!!!  Docs used to shill cigarettes back when my dad was running full time in the 60's.  So pardon me if I don't take everything they say as the gospel truth.

Hundreds of millions of people worldwide take cholesterol-lowering drugs, like statins, but now a new review suggests that many folks don't benefit from these medications. 
The researchers said the review of 35 randomized controlled trials failed to show a consistent benefit in lowering the risk of heart attack or stroke, or for preventing deaths.

Here's a question that most of the medical community seems unwilling or unable to answer:  WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF CHOLESTEROL?

Cholesterol isn't just something that you get from eating.  Your body produces cholesterol on its own, and your body doesn't just randomly produce things without there being a purpose behind it.  It's essential for your health, folks.  You need cholesterol to live a healthy life.

My grandpa died with his cholesterol levels somewhere around 400 mg/dL.  He died at the age of 93, and I guarantee that his cholesterol levels didn't just spike up when he was 92.  Moreover, the whole "OMG STOP EATING MEAT IT WILL KILL YOU!" line of bullshit is wrong as well.  It ain't the cheeseburger from Wendy's that's doing the damage, it's the super-duper-large sized batch of fries you're horking down that's killing you.  The cheeseburger is probably the healthiest thing to eat at Wendy's.  Except for maybe their chili.  Which is made from left-over burger meat. 

Getting rid of cholesterol will not help you live longer.  Taking drugs to remove cholesterol will not help you live longer.  Eating clean will help you live longer, and by clean I mean hormone-free meats and dairy, fresh veggies, and no processed carbohydrates.  Don't take drugs, just change your diet.

But anyways, what do I know?

Yep





At this point, I don't trust any part of the government infected with the Democrat Party to do anything other than cheat, lie and steal.

Whaddya expect? He's a California Democrat

The guy is tailor-made to be the perfect villain, isn't he?

California Gov. Gavin Newsom, one of the most Aristocratic, elite politicians to come along, has some serious, quite large, tax delinquency issues, according to RedState:

This guy is pretty much a stereotypical Marxist.  While the peasants starve, he'll be at his dacha eating caviar and steak.  Rules?  Rules are for the little people.  Just like taxes.  Paying taxes is for the proles and other assorted gutter trash.  Connected Marxists like Gavin Newsom don't have to bother with those pesky taxes, right?

At this point, reading about another fucking Marxist from California not paying taxes, or breaking the law, or cozy-ing up with Castro is turning in to a "dog bites man" story.

And this is how you get race wars

Burn Loot Murder now going after Hispanics in Kentucky.

The Louisville cadre of Black Lives Matter activists sent a letter to many downtown businesses demanding they “diversify” their employees. But at least one Cuban-American business owner objected to the threatening tone of the letter and posted his displeasure on Facebook.

Louisville's last Republican mayor left office in 1969.  Just wanted to put that out there.

Enjoy your marxist utopia!

My dear loving wife

Is rediscovering her serger.  She's doing it for me, so that I can have some custom made head-wraps for wearing under my helmet.

I don't know what I ever did to make her fall in love with me, but damn I'm glad it happened.

The lockdowns were a failure

And they probably extended the length of this current bullshit.

Regardless of all that, other countries in Europe that instituted government mandated YOU SHALL OBEY lockdowns are seeing a second wave of cases. This, in Courtney's esteemed opinion, seems to indicate the lockdowns don't work like the lockdown advocates want them to work. Or say they want them to work. Because, again in my opinion, the measures being shoved through in order to "save lives" are just a Trojan horse for socialism. The more the people comply with the increasing draconian orders, the more draconian orders we receive. Kind of like a "If you give a mouse a cookie" scenario. At this point, the mouse has completely taken over and we're just lucky to sleep on the floor. 
Whatever you do, don't spread the Swedish good news like how Covid was rumored to spread. The panic porn addicts who've made COVID their godking, would hate to be proven wrong.

We "flattened the curve" after two weeks.  But thanks to the lockdown, we didn't achieve herd immunity, and now we're on one big prolonged wave of the Peking Pox.  Whereas if we hadn't locked down we'd have had a spike in cases, and then a continual drop.  Kinda like Sweden.

UPDATE:  Check out this graph right here:



What the mainstream press keeps forgetting to tell people is that it can take the government days, if not weeks, to record a COVID-19 death. The daily reports aren’t telling us what’s happening now, but what happened earlier in the month. The chart below shows the impact of this. The gray bars represent when deaths are reported by Florida, and the red bars are when the deaths actually occurred. 

The Panic Porno Pushers are either ignorant, mis-informed, or in the case of the Democrats and their flunkies in the media, deliberately lying to you.

Anthony Fauci is a Democrat Operative in a white coat

I am long past tired of this fucking partisan shitstain.

During a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Friday, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) pressed Dr. Anthony Fauci on whether the government should restrict the massive Black Lives Matter protests across the country in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Fauci admitted that crowds full of people not wearing masks would likely spread the virus, but he refused to say whether or not protests would do so. He also refused to make any recommendations on limiting protests, even though he had made many recommendations in the past.

Can anyone tell me just what the hell this demented clown has gotten right?  EVER?

And this is why Democrats keep getting elected, and re-elected

Because there are people out there so stupid and moronic that they can't tell the difference between the national flag of Norway, and the "Confederate" flag.  Which wasn't the confederate flag to begin with, but a personal battle flag.  And none of that really matters, because neither the actual Confederate Flag nor the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia look anything like the national flag of Norway.  But again, people are stupid and ignorant, which is why Democrats keep getting elected and re-elected.  And this story comes out of Lansing, Michigan.  Lots of Democrats there.

Hydroxychloroquine works. The "experts" don't want you to know that.

I wonder why that is?

Dr. Harvey Risch, a noted Yale epidemiologist,  has accused White House coronavirus task force member Dr. Anthony Fauci of waging a "misinformation campaign" against the drug hydroxychloroquine, claiming the medication has shown consistently encouraging results in treating COVID-19 when used properly. 

I will take the Yale epidemiologist over the life-long Washington D.C. Swamp Dweller every day of the week and twice on Sundays, thank you.



Hydroxychloroquine has been around for decades.  We know what it does, how it does it and why.  The fact that so many people are hysterically trying to get you to think that it doesn't work, despite the literal DECADES OF EVIDENCE we possess on it's use and function, can only be ascribed to malevolence in some form.  Either they don't want people to get better (because then they can continue the lock-down and their iron-fisted control) or they don't want to allow a cheap, well-known drug to be the primary means of helping people (they want to sell you a very expensive drug/vaccine that they and their friends can get rich from selling).

In either case, the people trying to tell you that the drug doesn't work are evil. 

I can forgive the stupid and ignorant.  I cannot forgive the people who claim to be "experts", who I am told we should listen to because of their "expertise".  Their continual denial of a successful drug cannot be motivated by ignorance, because they're the "experts", right?  They KNOW STUFF!  Except, they apparently don't.  Either that, or they're evil people who want more Americans to die.

Professional Sports killed themselves. It was a woke suicide.

And I'm not the only person telling the leagues to go to hell.

Sports served as a distraction from whatever else was happening in the world and our lives, now it’s the manifestation of the Democratic Party’s demands of conformity. I’m not interested in conformity. A bunch of different colored like-minded drones chanting anti-American slogans is not my idea of diversity.
If I want to be preached to, I’ll call a priest, not millionaires who play a game for a living. If I want to learn something, I’ll read a book, not seek out the “feelings” of someone in a profession known for having proxies take their classes for them. And if I want a distraction from the stress of daily life, I’ll practice self-dentistry before I give these pampered, privileged narcissists a second of my time.

I used to get baseball scores on my phone.  No longer.  I can happily live my life without being preached at by idiots and morons who are good at sportsball.

Jerry Nadler is a grotesque caricature of a human being.

However, he's the epitome of a politician.  The only sense of calm that I get when I think about the damage that commie bastard has done to this country is when I remember that once he dies, he's going to spend eternity roasting in the fires of hell.

Stockton's Ride

Woke up early yesterday, got some coffee in me, and prepared for a ride.

A little kid passed away about a week ago.  Genetic disorders, multiple, he wasn't supposed to live to the age of one.  He made it to seven.  He liked motorcycles.  His mom asked a friend if they could find some motorcycle riders to do an escort to the cemetery.  That request made it to facebook.  And that facebook post found the Motorcycle Riders of Utah, which is how I found out about it.



Not the greatest photo, but I'm the guy on the far left there.  About the only time you'll hear me describe myself in such a fashion.

I didn't do an exact count but there were at least 150 motorcycles that showed up to escort a little kid to his final rest.  The formation was half a mile long.  99% of us didn't know the family, didn't know little Stockton.  We just wanted to get together to do something for a grieving family.  Harleys, sport bikes, Can-Ams, one trike that used the rear end of a 67 VW Beetle.  Old folks, young folks, and everything in between.  The family came out of the funeral home and started crying all over again to see how many people showed up.  It was a good thing.  

So that's where I was yesterday.  Came back a little sunburnt and dehydrated from the heat, but it was good to get together with so many different people who didn't talk politics for an afternoon.

Now to do the lawn that I ignored yesterday.

Democrats, shooting Democrats, in a Democrat controlled city, with a Democrat mayor, and Democrat aldermen, and Democrat DA.

So in military parlance, it's Red on Red.  Leave it alone and just let it happen.

A funeral for a shooting victim killed last week on the streets of Chicago had dozens of mourners paying their last respects to the deceased. 
As the crowd was leaving the funeral home, a car sped by pouring automatic weapons fire into the mourners. Some of them returned fire. When the smoke cleared, at least 15 people lay on the ground calling for help.

Ladies and gents, this is what they have voted for.  This is what they want.  This is how they have chosen to live, and this is what is going to happen in Democrat controlled cities all over the country.

And there's really not a damn thing that you or I can do about it. 

Well, Google does what China wants it to do, so why do you think it cares about actual freedom?

Google is blacklisting conservative websites.

Well, here we are today. Nine out of ten people on the planet who use Internet search use Google — and today, these people can’t find this blog or other conservative blogs and websites using Google. This is a foreshadowing of the cancelling to come. If you are on the Left, but take a position contrary to the kind of techno-progressivism and globalism favored by Google and others in Silicon Valley, you’re going to be next. We on the Right — especially religious people — have to prepare ourselves for life as dissidents under soft totalitarianism.

SOFT totalitarianism?  Only at first, Rod.  And it'll get real hard real quick.  That's what the Left does.

Stole this from Insty





They don't want to go to work?  That's fine.  This isn't the USSR (yet), and if they don't want to work they shouldn't be forced to work. 

But then they shouldn't get paid, either.

And now Major League Baseball can go fuck itself

Fuck you, you pampered, overpaid group of bitches, pussies and other various assorted fucking shitstains.

With all the talk of athletics going political, one might think the league itself would stay out of the hubbub. 
But MLB jumped in and told people what it’s all about:

If there's one thing the panic pandemic has shown people, it's that they don't need sports to live.  I haven't been bothered with a lack of sports, and I really don't give a shit if it never comes back.  So if MLB wants to fly it's Proggie flag, they can go ahead.  Fuck the MLB.  I quit watching the Thugball league years ago.  I quit watching the NFL in 2017, and I haven't missed it.  I'll drop baseball like a bad habit, and I won't be back.

Fuck MLB, and fuck every little spoiled cunt who kneels during the anthem.

If you had told me last year

That I would be spending $360 for a thousand rounds of steel-cased 9mm ammo, I would have called you nuts.

Now?

The Mrs. looks at the bare shelves and is essentially screaming at me to order whatever bulk ammo I can find online.  Which, at this current junction, is Russian steel-cased stuff.  We have an old mil-surp ammo box from the 80's.  It held 7.62 rounds, and it'll hold about four to five thousand rounds of 9mm.  It ain't full yet.  The Mrs. wants it full.  It will get filled.

And then we'll be stacking it where ever we can find space.

Mario Cuomo is an arrogant moron who killed thousands of people with his executive order

The Kung Flu isn't as bad as people are screaming.  Not even close.

The media has praised Cuomo to the high heavens. He made the most disastrous single decision of any politician in the 21st century when it comes to loss of life when he sent all of his patients back to nursing homes. 
It is an indefensible decision that is now being exposed after comparing the death rate between the states. 
It’s not just in the United States either.  New York and New Jersey have double the death of any other country in the entire world. 
If New York had handled things like Texas and Florida did, it would basically be a flu outbreak.

Sorry about the weird quote margins.  Blogger is being stupid.  Go read.

This is how the shooting war will start

Gutless pathetic fucking Democrat shitbags refuse to enforce the law and allow the Pantifa shitbags to assault people with weapons.

Come at my wife with a weapon, I'm dropping you.  I will put a bullet in your fucking brain and walk away smiling.

Come at any of my family with a weapon and I will end your life.  Come at me with a weapon, and I will take it from you and use it to slam your teeth down your throat.  If there are more of you than I can handle with my fists?  I will simply kill all of you.  I will drop you like the feral animals you are, and once again, I will sleep perfectly well at night.

I don't care what pathetic fucking excuse the Democrat party has.  Allowing Pantifa to assault and beat peaceful protesters while the police stand right next to the action and do nothing?  That's how a motherfucking communist get shot.  And once the shooting starts, it won't stop for a while.  Once that switch gets flipped, it's on.


Well, actually..... yeah.

Image may contain: 1 person, meme and beard, text that says 'KILLED FEWER NEW YORKERS THAN ANDREW CUOMO'


I'm tired of the media giving Nipples Cuomo a tongue bath every night on TV when that fucking bastard is directly responsible for the massive amount of deaths in NY nursing homes.  The entire Cuomo family is nothing but a bunch of two-bit moronic thugs, and if they didn't have a mob-boss for a daddy they'd be shilling crack in back alleys and shaking down businesses in Brooklyn rather than being Governor or CNN host.

It was a beautiful day for a ride

And we weren't the only ones that thought so.



We pulled in to a gas station in Heber to stretch our legs and get something to drink.  About thirty seconds after we parked our bikes, a huge group of sport bikes pulled in for the same reason.  Here we are all parked at the curb.  My bike is the one on the far right. 

It was an almost-perfect day for riding.  We got hit with a crosswind on the way back, but it was manageable.  I got a little sunburnt despite the sunscreen.  But the day was wonderful, the Mrs loved the ride, and being on the road with friends beats doing just about anything else.

Dr. Fauci is a hack and a political animal. Not a medical practitioner.

He's been wrong far, far more than he's been right.

This is the same guy who told the country not to wear masks, but then later said we should all wear masks.  This is the guy who in February was saying the Kung Flu was no big deal, and in March was saying we were all gonna die.  This is the guy who would destroy the economy in order to "save" a country. 

At this point, almost ever action he's taken needs to be looked at as a political action against Trump.  Because even if that's not true, and he actually thinks he was doing the right thing, how could you tell the difference?

Saturday, July 18, 2020

Is your blood pressure too low?

Go watch this video of Antifa fuckers assaulting police officers in Chicago.

If the cops put a bullet in every single one of those fucking bastards heads, and I was on the jury, I would vote to acquit. 

Now I need to get off the computer and go make dinner.

By the way, the saddlebags look great.  It only took waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too damn long to figure out how the hell to put them on.  Turns out that when Viking Bags sent their hardware, they assumed that I didn't have a passenger backrest on the bike.  The backrest is mounted on brackets that have their own spacers.  If I didn't have the backrest, everything would have fit just fine.  But then I wouldn't have the Mrs. go along with me on rides.  So, time to do a little redneck engineering.  I had to take out the tools and grind off about half an inch on each bracket before we could make the bags fit.

But still....  hard-shell, lockable, looks good on the bike.  It was worth it.  And I didn't have to pay anyone else to do it.

I got to sleep in today!

Woke up at 0700.

Had coffee.  More coffee. 

Now it's time to do all the work around my house that I haven't done in a month.  To include putting new saddlebags on the ride.

Y'all have fun with blogs on the sidebar.

From my priest back in Louisiana

We were at the same level, mentally speaking.

The media is trying to scare people with the Kung Flu numbers. Don't let them.

It's not that bad, folks.

Nevertheless, because we’ve witnessed a spike in cases and there have roughly 3.5 million cases in the United States, that’s the number the media seems to be gravitating to. Why? Because when you look at the number of cases or the number deaths individually and compare them to other countries, the USA seems be the hardest hit… 
…that is until you account for population or look at the ratio of deaths per confirmed cases. I’ve previously examined how the United States measures up on cases and deaths per capita, so we know why the media doesn’t report on that, but the media the media aslso doesn’t want to report about case fatality rate (CFR). And the following graphs will show you why.

And while the total number of deaths might seem bad, I don't trust the numbers.  I don't trust the people who are telling me the numbers.  Remember, states have been labeling EVERYTHING a Kung Flu death, even if you die with a .55% BAC in Colorado.

Blogrolling

I've added the Captain's Journal to the blogroll.  After reading this post, it was almost mandatory.

To begin with, it’s always been a myth that the police were there for protection.  Regular readers, and most other educated men and women, already know about cases Warren versus D.C. and Castle Rock versus Gonzales.  There are more, but these two cases demonstrate that police are not duty bound to offer anyone protection. 
But at least it’s a myth that many people have believed.  The riots, looting, pillaging, beatings and murders of late have convinced many uninformed folks that maybe they do need protection in lieu of police.  In short, that myth has been shattered.

If the riots and violence of the past month has proved anything, it's that the police won't protect you, and the politicians are actively working against you.

And speaking of institutions self-destructing

Sports Illustrated put three meth-head looking stick figures on the cover of their swimsuit edition, and said that they're putting a tranny in this rag as well.

I don't want to see heroin addicts in swimsuits, and I don't need to see chicks with dicks.

How they hell they went from Kate Upton to some crackhead skanks, I'll never know.

The Redskins are changing their name and logo

Part of me really doesn't give a shit, because I don't watch football.  The other part of me recognizes that this is another loss in the culture war.  It's a big part of the reason I stopped watching sports all together.  Sports didn't used to be political, but the Marxist Left refused to leave it alone.  And the Marxist Left won sports.  Maybe not hockey, but you just wait.

The NBA sucks Chinese cock.  The NFL works with people who hate this country even as they make millions from it.  MLB is being run by a moron. 

Back to the Redskins, who, if I have to refer to them from this time on, I will still call the Redskins because fuck the Left.

Nobody picks a mascot because you think they're weak or stupid.  Nobody picks a mascot that's craven, cowardly or disloyal.  They pick a mascot because that mascot either has historical connotations (Seattle Mariners, Green Bay Packers), some sort of link to the area (St. Louis Cardinals, Colorado Rockies) or because that mascot has traits that you want to emulate (Chicago Bears, Washington Redskins).

Oh, and the Redskins logo?  It was created by a Native American.  So the Left has destroyed yet another icon created by the very people they claim to care about.

Anyways, it's over and done.  I suggest a new, more fitting name for the team that represents our nations capitol.  How about the Chapped Labia?  The D.C. Botflies?  The Washington Leeches?  The Money-Grubbing Lobbyists?

Ooooo, the Black Looming Marxists.

If I didn't already despise the NFL, I'd swear off football.  Again.

Wear Marks

I work in an old building.  Unless you've been in the Army, most people don't understand the concept of "old buildings".  I'm not talking just some building that's been around for a while.  It's....  well, here, let me show you.




That's the post at the bottom of the stairs in my building.  There are at least five different layers of paint on that thing (mmmmm, lead paint!), and it's been worn down through sheer amount of use.  A century of hands have touched that post, and another century will probably do so after I'm gone.

When I was at Ft. McCoy, there were barracks being used that were built in 1942, that had a projected five year life-span.  Seventy years later, they're still being used.

That's an old building.  And Army buildings have a certain smell.  It's hard to explain.  It's like a mix of Pine-Sol, gun oil, sweat, and Drill Sergeant breath.

Anyways, there's some random crap that just fell out of my brain.

Back home, back home

Well, that was a quick little jaunt this weekend.  With dad laid up, mom needed some help, so I flew up Friday and left yesterday.  There were five trees that had to come down.  For several of them, we hired an arborist.  The biggest tree was at least 150 feet tall, and 53 inches across at the base.  We know this, because we measured it after it was down.  We gave the pieces away to a guy who does wood sculpture, because there are no mills left in Idaho who have equipment that can process logs this large.

Anyways, I'm still knackered from the past few days.  I burned through all the chainsaw gas.  All of it.  And there will be more work to do in August for my brother and I to finish. 

As for politics, not much has changed, as it?  Black Lies Matter is still anti-family, anti-Christian, and anti-American.  The Democrats still hate you and want you to die.  Joe Biden is still mentally deficient. 

Now, back to work I go.

I'm back in the sticks with no internet

So enjoy some good music.




The ONLY thing the government is good at doing, is killing people

Please read this.  It's short, but succinct. 

Do not think that the government is going to save you from anything.  It cannot do so.  It is not designed to do so, nor does it have the wherewithal to do a damn thing other than kill you.

I may go in to why this hits me personally later.  Maybe not.  We'll see how I feel.

I've always believed the Kung Flu was made in a lab. Now I'm starting to think that the ChiComs had a target.

Asking questions that people don't want asked.

You will note that the majority of doctors/nurses who died of COVID in the UK were South Asian. This is quite striking. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/08/world/europe/coronavirus-doctors-immigrants.html — Goldacre et al’s excellent paper also found this on a broader scale (https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.05.06.20092999v1). From a probability point of view, this alone should make one suspect a genetic component.

South Asian.  As in India and Pakistan.  Who is China skirmishing with right now?  India.  India and Pakistan are one race separated by religion.  Does anyone out there think the ChiComs wouldn't design a virus to take out their rivals if they could?

The question is, could they actually do it?  And is the Kung Flu one of their attempts, only it got loose before they wanted it to do so?

Spare Change

I keep a box next to the bed, and at the end of the day, should I have any change in my pocket, I toss it in the box.  We've been here for about a year now, and the box was halfway full.

On Sunday I went for a nice ride to clear my head.  Nothing like some canyons and fresh air to improve your mental state.


Anyways, I stopped in to a local gas station to grab a drink before I rode home, and the people were lamenting the lack of change.  As in, actual hard cash.  Apparently, the banks are out.  The Loomis truck that showed up with their daily cash in the morning had brought them a single roll of quarters.  They had nothing. 

So I went home, rolled up that box of change, and brought it back to the gas station on Monday.  $69 worth of quarters, dimes, nickles and pennies.  The manager almost cried when I plonked that stash down on the counter.  And I walked away with $69 to put in the safe.  Even better, I didn't have to pay CoinStar's 11% fee, which meant I actually got back everything I had.

Anyways, if you have a change jar, now might be a good time to cash it in.  Or take $20 in change to buy your beer tonight.

Kemp calls in the National Guard to clean up Democrat shithole run by Democrats

Bad move.  Very bad move.

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp on Monday issued an executive order declaring a state of emergency and activating up to 1,000 National Guard members after Atlanta was wracked with violence over Independence Day weekend. 
The move follows “weeks of dramatically increased violent crime and property destruction in the City of Atlanta,” said Kemp, a Republican.

Democrats were doing what Democrats do, in a Democrat controlled city, run by Democrats for decades.  There's absolutely no need for a Republican to step in and fix the Democrat mess.  Let them get what they voted for, and let them get it good and hard.  There was no need to put any troops in harm's way, and now there will be optics of poor widdle oppressed black people being targeted by uniformed troops.  It doesn't matter what the reality is, that's the optic that will be presented by the anti-American media and their goons.

Let Democrats shoot each other in their Democrat swamps.  Let them riot and destroy their Democrat shitholes.  All we have to do is step back and let it happen.  Enjoy voting Democrat this year, you Democrat thugs!

Just keep the troops out of it.

If I were the cops, I'd file that report right after "Never".

Media freak out and decide that vandalism is bad again.

You know who I haven’t seen the media describe as vandals, nor put any effort into identifying? Those tearing down 100-year-old statues across the country, including those of abolitionists and Founding Fathers. If a guy in a black mask and an anarchy A throws red paint on century-old Washington statute, it’s part of a “peaceful protest” against systematic racism. But let a white woman throw some paint on a two week old BLM screed and it’s suddenly all hands on deck. 
Meanwhile, the media are still avoiding identifying the race of the man who ran over a woman and killed her in Seattle. Why? Because he was black and it was likely an accident, therefore it doesn’t fit the narrative. They’d rather continue to insinuate it was a white supremacist by being purposely vague in their headlines.

In the case of the Seattle incident, where a white (stupid, indoctrinated, Marxist) woman was hit and killed by a black man, the media has stooped to saying that she was hit by a "luxury car".

The media is an absolute dumpster fire of anti-American bullshit, and it proves that fact every single day.

Anyways, if I were the cops, I'd take that report, and toss it in the circular file the moment I got back to the station.  "Oh, someone painted over a BLM bullshit mural that was painted on a public road?  Gosh, how horrible.  Yes Karen, I'll get right on that."

There's a reason they are called "The Stupid Party", Kurt

Kurt Schlichter takes a bat to the GOP.  But I don't think it will do any good.

People keep telling you GOP-types to shape up. Tucker Carlson’s ratings are reaching low earth orbit thanks to his merciless pillorying of you empty suits. Maybe you should listen to the voters instead of the overpaid doofuses you are paying a ton of money to in order to lose your elections for you. It’s not hard to not fail. It’s not hard to help your voters instead of your opponents. The Democrats manage to do it, and they’re a pack of brother-marrying, pinko weirdos who think men get periods and that the Russians are to blame for everything, including their myriad sexual inadequacies.

People like Rick Wilson run the GOP.  In case you aren't aware of who Rick Wilson is...

The bottom line is that the GOP establishment is still a bunch of Democrat-fellating bitches, and assuming we can right the ship it's going to take more than a couple election cycles.  The GOP is still fighting against Trump right now, or at least allowing him to take the full brunt of the attack while they spread their asscheeks for the DNC and whimper "Yes Daddy!"  There's a few notable exceptions.  But they're just that:  EXCEPTIONS.

I'm likely to agree with the people who say we can't vote our way out of this.  That doesn't mean we shouldn't try, but buy ammo.  Buy more ammo.

I do love Idaho

Just realized my car tabs were expired.  Run off to find a phone number, but my county is so back-logged after the pandemic panic porno that I can't even get through.  Look through the DMV list, and call up the DMV in Malad, which is right north of the Utah border.  They pull up my info and take care of everything for me over the phone.  Car is once again legal, and I'll be getting the tabs mailed to me.

Try THAT is Kalifornia or NYFC!

They cancelled the fireworks show

Apparently, the neighborhood didn't get the memo.  It sounds like WWIII out here.  Nice view.

It's the 4th

I drove all day to get home.  I'm currently out back with scotch and a cigar.  That is all.

About that surge in "coronavirus-related hospitalizations"....

Yeah.  The key word is "related", and it's only key because the media is a bunch of anti-American Democrat propaganda artists who want you to remain scared.

“It’s been widely reported that the hospitalization rate has been going up, but it’s not reported that it’s not mostly COVID-19,” Dr. Siegel continued. “It’s actually the cases that were there because of the reopening, because they are now getting the elective surgeries they need – cancer operations, heart disease operations, hernia operations – they are filling the hospitals. Only COVID-19 is actually getting in the way of all of that because these mild cases require isolation.”

I have been assuming that any of the breathless reporting on the Kung Flu Death Virus is complete and absolute bullshit.  And with very few exceptions, I've been correct.

The lockdown is based on junk "science" by garbage scientists.

And you know it.  You know it in your bones.

Ioannidis did not spare modelers who predicted as many as 40 million people would die, or those who claimed the US healthcare system would be overrun. 
“The predictions of most mathematical models in terms of how many beds and how many ICU beds would be required were astronomically wrong,” Ioannidis said. “Indeed, the health system was not overrun in any location in the USA, although several hospitals were stressed.” 
Conversely, he added, these actions had detrimental effects on the US health care system, which was “severely damaged” because of measures taken.

I'm at the point where if the government calls for another shutdown, I think we need to march to our local seats of government and start erecting gallows.

I'm at my parent's house

We've had to light a fire in the stove to warm up the house tonight.  In JULY.

Al Gore can kiss my ass.

Enjoy your diversity, New England Democrats!

Pitchfork wielding protesters in the Hamptons.  Didn't Barry Jug-Ears O'Bumblefuck buy a Hamptons Estate?

A caravan of protesters — some wielding plastic pitchforks — descended on the Hamptons Wednesday to blast the rich and decry the nation’s rising income inequality.

Enjoy the movement you spawned, you cock-gargling bastards.

Heh. Size Matters

Not so much "heh".  Forcing people to wear masks is social conditioning.

The pore size of cloth face coverings range from ~ 20-100 microns.   The Covid virus is 200-1000x smaller than that, at 0.1 microns. Putting up a chain link fence will not keep out a mosquito. Even the most esteemed medical journals admit their purpose is to calm anxiety. “Expanded masking protocols’ greatest contribution may be to reduce the transmission of anxiety …” 
Of course, by knowledge or common sense observation, most Americans already know that masking everyone is superstition. But unlike privately carrying a lucky charm, mandating facial coverings requires the consent of the governed.

I'm sorry folks, cloth masks don't do shit to stop a virus.  They can stop dust.  Pollen.  Other allergens, depending on the size.  But not a virus.  And the people telling you that a mask will protect you are flat out lying, or they're dupes themselves.

Leftists: Why don't you right wingers trust science? Also Leftists: THAT SCIENCE DOES NOT SUPPORT OUR NARRATIVE! BURN THE WITCH! BURRRRRRN HIM!

Gosh, tell me about how much the Left just f**king loves science again?

Michigan State University leaders have successfully pressured Stephen Hsu to resign from his position as vice president of research and innovation after the Graduate Employees Union launched a campaign to oust him from his role. 
This came after the union, which represents teaching and research assistants, crawled through years of blog posts and interviews Hsu had conducted and criticized him for sharing content on genetic differences among different races. 
But the main thrust to oust Hsu came because the professor touted Michigan State research that found police are not more likely to shoot African-Americans.

If you want to know why so many Americans are ignoring and rejecting the so-called "experts", all you have to do is look at the actions of said so-called "experts".  Opera, non verba.  Deeds, not words.  And the deeds of these Marxist, anti-American parasites is anything but scientific.

If the Seattle mayor wasn't such a dumb communist bint, she might have read some relevant portions of the bible

Such as "As ye sow, so shall ye reap".

She called CHOP the “summer of love” shortly before it became a season of slaughter: Three people have died in the CHOP, including a teenager this past weekend. Residents who did not choose to live in CHOP — they didn’t cross its borders, CHOP’s borders crossed them — now live in fear of Wokistan’s thought police backed by the zone’s armed warlord. 
Durkan has said she would send in the city crews and police to dismantle CHOP, but so far she has not. CHOP, the segregationist, secessionist confederacy of woke campus radicals and others, remains. But it seems that even a mass squatting protest that makes national headlines — mostly detrimental to whatever cause they’re pushing — has not attracted enough attention. 
Earlier today CHOP took its protest straight to the mayor’s house. The Blaze reports Mayor Durkan was upset.

To hell with Seattle and every Leftist who lives there.  They deserve each other.

Here's some numbers for you, and my blood is boiling

Number of Kung Flu deaths in Idaho:  91

Number of deaths by suicide in Idaho for 2020 so far:  392

So we destroyed the economy over a bullshit shamdemic, and for what?  One giant social experiment is what my mom says.  Me, I think it's the Deep State/National Socialist Democrat Worker's Party way of stopping Trump from getting re-elected, so they can have their drooling halfwit puppet Gropy Joe Biden installed for them to use.

When more people are suck-starting a shotgun than dying from the Chinkvirus, I think it's time that we all had a long hard talk with the powers that be.  And currently, right now, I wouldn't mind if the powers that be were taken outside and strung up from a large tree.  Why's that, you ask?

When my mom can't go see my dad in the hospital because of the fucking bullshit shamdemic regulations?  Fuck you, you god-damned bureaucratic fuckweasels.  And I try not to take the Lord's name in vain, but the people who are implementing this crap are truly god-damned.  They say abortion is fine, but my mom, a MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL WHO OWNED HER OWN MEDICAL CLINIC FOR DECADES CAN'T GO SEE MY FATHER???????



FUCK!  YOU!



Fuck you, die screaming, and spend eternity choking on the barbed cock of Satan, you damned liars!  You idiots!  You incompetent, spineless parasites!

I fought the wood. I won.

Although the wood got a few licks in.

Gym workout? HA!

It's amazing how much working out in the back forty can show you what you're failing at in the gym.  My back feels like someone took a baseball bat to it.

Back out there today.  There's a hell of a lot to clean up, as both my brother and I tear through the piles of logs and wood that have been laying there for a number of years.

Slight update

Not going to go into specifics here, just that on Father's Day, my dad was knocking on death's door and Charon seemed obliged to open it for him.  Hence the hauling of ass up I-15 on Sunday.  The Mrs. and I found out what her truck could really do.  I was impressed.

Now a couple days past, it seems that Dad might pull through after all, now that the fucking quacks who were determined to kill him through medical malpractice pulled their heads out of their asses and took a breath.  I can't lay all the blame on them.  The Kung Flu lockdown has hospitals operating under protocols and procedures that would get them sued in any other time.  If the Kung Flu bullshit lockdowns end up killing my dad, my response to the government demanding another lockdown might come at about 2000 fps.

In any case, he's improving.  And my brother and I are helping mom out on the property, doing all the summer-time stuff a country home needs to have done, that dad won't be able to do because he'll be too weak from this crap to lift a chainsaw.  Hell, he'll be doing good to come sit out on the porch and do a crossword puzzle.  It looks like I'll be coming back here in August as well, to make sure the house is ready for fall and winter.  Firewood stacked, hay in the barn, snow-removal equipment PMCSed and ready to go.

I don't have internet up here, so I'm using my phone as a hotspot.  Needless to say, that limits my internet to a few bits of news and email.  Don't expect much from me for the next couple of weeks.  Thanks for the well wishes.  Blogging will resume to normal levels by early July.

Abso-friggin-lutely

What if I trust Science and don't trust Dr. Fauci?

Medicine is the art of applying science to a set of symptoms and complaints. As it turns out, doctors treating patients did a much better job figuring out the science that our Health Experts™ did. So, quite frankly, Dr. Fauci and his peers should never wield the amount of authority over all aspects of citizens’ lives as they have for the past several months.

Dr. Fauci is worse than a quack, he's a bureaucratic quack.  His "authority" needs to be questioned at every turn, because quite frankly every decision he's made, has made things worse.  The lockdown was absolute bullshit.  Continuing to lock everything down is absolute bullshit.  Dr. Fauci was one of the main instigators of the destruction of our economy and he was basing his bullshit opinion on a bullshit model from a bullshit "scientist" who had never gotten  a damn thing right in the past, and who stepped down after he was found violating the shutdown order he wrote.

Every.  Single.  Fucking.  So-called.  Expert.  Was.  Wrong.

Fuck them all, and fuck their authority.

Happy Father's Day

And while I'm certain you all know deep in your bones that Marxism and Christianity are incompatible, here's a little bit of reasoning and logic regarding that.  You can be a Christian, you can be a Marxist, but you can't be both.

Light posting for a while

There's some personal stuff going on, so I'll post when I can, but I may be incommunicado some days.

That's why I have a blogroll.

How to shoot a handgun in 10 minutes.

Twelve, actually.  But who's really counting?


Good stuff.  I'd pass that vid on to anyone getting into handgun shooting.

Late to Bed, Early to Rise

Makes a man grumpy, forgetful and bleary-eyed.  With apologies to Benjamin Franklin.

It seems the more I get done, the more there is to do.  That's a common cry from a lot of the folks I know.  I used to chuckle at that phrase a bit.  Now I just look at the In-Box and sigh.

On the other hand, I did have enough time last night, in between picking up various necessities and dealing with various people, to put the windscreen on the new bike.  So there's that.

Today?  Off and out the door early once again.  Have I mentioned how much I'm looking forward to retirement?

Oh, and the Supreme Court's DACA ruling?  Straight up Never-Trump bullshit from Deep State shitbags.  Every time I think that the SCOTUS can't sink any lower, they prove themselves wrong.  And John Roberts is a hack.  I saw someone else ask the question:  Exactly what the hell is George W. Bush's legacy?  Two wars, one of which is a never-ending quagmire of suck, the other was a defeat thanks to Barry Hussein O'Bumblefuck the jug-eared commie cocksucker.  A Supreme Court Justice who seems to delight in shredding the constitution in order to please his Democrat masters, or to simply piss off Trump and the rest of America who can read enough plain English to see that what he's doing is flat out wrong.  And squishy, oh-so-squishy "conservatives" who don't conserve anything.

We on the right defended that man and his actions for eight years.  And in the end, what did it get us?  It got us shit on, that's what.  Can anyone show me a positive side to the GWB legacy?

Anyways, I'm off to the salt mines.

Freedom

I have attained a certain status in my employment where the worst than can happen to me, provided that I don't violate any actual laws, is that I could be forced to retire.

Needless to say, I've eased up on the brain-mouth filter quite a bit.  Some people find it charming.  Some people find it quite disturbing. 

I don't care.

Leftist psychos hand out guns on videos, anti-gun Leftist curiously silent

HA!  We know why they're silent.  Because they only want to disarm the people who can and will protect this country.  Violent psychos taking over parts of major American cities can do whatever they want so long as they hold to the Leftist line of America bad.

So you’ll not be surprised by my interest in the armed goings-on inside the newly-formed autonomous/not-so-autonomous zone known as “CHAD” in the already-liberal dominated major metropolitan city of Seattle. 
Because what’s going on is precisely what the lefties who support this lunacy say they want eradicated: uncontrolled gun possession. 
Meet Raz of CHAZ, the apparently self-appointed warlord of BirkenstockStan, reportedly doling out AR-15s from the trunk of a Tesla. 
I’ll wait a moment while you finish guffawing at that visual.
Ready? Ok. To the video:

So apparently even the EEEEEEEEEEEVIL AR-15 is turned into a weapon of justice when they're passed out willy-nilly from the back of a car in Leftist controlled territory.  Huh.  Who woulda thunk it?

The Left wants to disarm their opponents because the Left is planning on doing things that would get them shot.  But the Left will keep guns in the hands of their favored subjects who will do their bidding.

The Panic Pandemic, and storing up sundry goods.

My wife and I tend to hoard things.  In an effort to not appear on various TV shows, our house nothing but pathways through the mess, we actively try to get rid of things, and we don't buy things we don't need.  An often asked question from either the Mrs. or myself when we're at the store is "Yes, but where will we keep it?"  If we don't have an answer, we don't buy it.  Must fight the hoarding tendencies. 

It doesn't help that ever since our house in Wisconsin we've had to purge for every move and every new house.  Each successive house has been smaller than the last, forcing us to toss away even more of our hobbies and crafts that are unnecessary in the grand scheme of things.  Clothing that we could afford to hold on to in the previous move now takes up space in this house, so out it goes.  It was old anyways.

One of the things that we've not had a huge amount of in any house is ammunition.  I would love to have Ye Oldde Storage Loquer, a la Kim du Toit, but I have to move it myself since moving companies won't touch it, and we never have much room to store ammo in any case.  We've kept a few thousand rounds of all types combined, but never any stockpiling.  I may have grumbled about not having enough ammo in the house, but every time I had to load all of it up into a vehicle and move it across the country, I grumbled a bit less. 

And then the Panic Pandemic hit.  Next thing you know, we couldn't even get toilet paper because people were freaking the hell out.  And we went to buy a couple boxes of ammo just to go to the range, and every shelf was bare.  Gone.  Nada.  There was one lonely box of Hornady Critical Defense, and that was it for 9mm.  Pretty much all practice ammo in every caliber was wiped clean. You could by a box of 50 specialty rounds for $30, and that was about it.

And the wife got that look on her face.  Anger and panic combined, with a healthy dose of "WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK!" mixed in.  Flashbacks from a few situations we'd been in years ago, where everybody around us was losing their damn minds and we were just trying to keep ourselves out of the stupidity.

So a couple weeks later, I'm doing my online thing, I check a few websites, and I see a box of 1000 rounds of 9mm for about $300.  I mention it to her.  "Hey babe, you still want me to look at buying ammo?  Here's this box."  She just looked at me and said "Buy it.  Buy it now."  So I did.

We get the ammo, we go to the range, much pew pew pew, and we go through about 450 rounds.  It was a good range session.  And as we're on the way home, she looks at me and says "That ammo?  If you see any other deals in that range, don't ask, just buy."

So we've got a case of 1000 rounds unopened, about 1000 rounds in various boxes, and another 1000 rounds on the way.  And I'm figuring that each month will be another 1000 rounds, although the wife made a statement last night that we'll be trying to buy 1k rounds every pay period so that amount may double.

At this rate I'm going to need to rent a separate U-Haul truck to move my ammo once I retire, but isn't my wife's peace of mind worth it?  I also might have to look into reinforcing the floor in the gun room.  If I start to hear the floor joists creak when I walk in, a few bricks and boards underneath should help.  I could also space the ammo out through the house.

Anyways, just a little bit of what's whirring around in my brain for ya today.  Plus, I'm getting more ammo.

Monday, June 15, 2020

Yeah. Sure. Go ahead and defund the police. That just makes it open season on Pantifa turds.

So shall we discuss what the Pantifa dipshits don't understand?  Well, OK, let's narrow that scope a little bit otherwise we'd be here all year.

I keep going back to the argument made by Francis Porretto, because the truth of it cannot be denied.  We made the conscious choice to trade violence for justice.  If for whatever reason justice is not be attained, be it through corruption, malfeasance or the absence of the lawmen, WE CAN GO RIGHT BACK TO VIOLENCE.

The police only have any authority because we the people have given it to them. We have made a trade: We give up violent retribution in exchange for justice. Instead of hunting down the person who steals my car and shooting them, I allow the police to arrest them and put them in jail. (may not be completely accurate in Seattle) I don't track down a murderer and take out his entire house, I allow the police to arrest him and put him in jail.

If the police departments all go away, I retain the right to use violence to deal with criminals and law-breakers. If there are no police to arrest the idiot breaking into my house, then I'm just going to shoot the criminal and dump his body in a shallow grave. Whaddya gonna do? Get the police to arrest me?  Do you really think that Thuggy-D and his crew are going to be able to assault through concentrated fire?  And if Thuggy D and his crew take out my neighbor's house and destroy it, then I track down Thuggy-D and snipe him off from a nice safe distance to ensure that he never does anything like that ever again.  The bottom line is that the potential for violence from people like me is huge.  We know what to do, and we know how to do it.  So what stops us from doing it?  Well, morals (if you have them) and the police.  It's not worth the risk of going to jail for life just to wipe out a pack of feral thugs that the police can arrest and throw in jail.  But if there are no cops?

The police don't protect people like me from criminals. The police protect the criminals from people like me. And I'm just a guy who wants to be left alone. Don't think that there aren't a whole bunch of folks out there meaner than me. Angrier than me. More violent and dangerous than me, all of whom are oiling up their guns and hoping that the Antifa maggots get exactly what they want, because then it's open season.

Happy Birthday to the Big Green Machine

245 years old, and still going strong!  Doesn't look a day over 300!  Hooah!  Also known as Flag Day for all you people who weren't blessed with the opportunity to experience the military from the vantage point of eating the mud you're crawling through.

Blogger isn't letting me post pictures.  Just imagine a big ass Army seal right here.

Going on a Flag Day ride today.  Maybe will post later.

This quote has been going around lately

I might as well post it here too:

Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.

George Orwell, 1984.  The Democrats have been using that book as an instruction manual for decades.

Apparently, at least one person is tired of the new, political Jim Mattis.

And he wrote a letter

Maybe, your problem, is a lot deeper. Perhaps you ought to explain how and why you (and John Allen), as CG Central Command, did not engage and take out Iranian Major General Soleimani who roamed the Middle East and wreaked havoc and death of our American boys with his infamous IEDs? 
Why did it take President Trump to have the instincts and balls to take him out (of course over the objection of the geniuses in the Pentagon)?

There's more.  All of it a slap in the face to a guy who used to command a lot of respect, but now seems to be kissing the feet of the Left.

I knew that Pantifa controlled Seattle

Much like they control Portland.  They pull the strings, and the politicians dance.  But now they've gone from being the power behind the throne to occupying the throne outright.

Just as the Islamic State (ISIS) claimed territory in Iraq and Syria, antifa militants have claimed territory in Seattle, Wash. According to reports on the ground from The Post Millennial’s Andy Ngo and Townhall’s Julio Rosas, protesters and antifa instigators have seized land in the Capitol Hill area around the Seattle Police East Precinct. Like ISIS, the rioters appear to have decided on setting up a government in their occupied territory, naming it “Free Capitol Hill.”

This is the same area that was represented by Baghdad Jim McDermott, just for a frame of reference.  Back when I lived in the Seattle area, Capitol Hill and First Hill were nicknamed "Pill Hill" for the prevalence of tweakers and various other drug users who populated the area.  This is the area who screamed and cried about cops arresting "peaceful" druggies in the parks.  They demanded that the cops stop arresting those poor addicts.  The cops did so, and then the people began screaming and yelling about the used needles in the parks, and why didn't the cops do anything about that?

If Capitol Hill were a person, it would be a crackhead with multiple personality disorder.

Pantifa owns it now.  Personally, I hope Pantifa keeps it.  Seattle deserves what is coming.  Build a wall around the city to keep any more Leftists from escaping it.

Peter Grant points out that Seattle has completely abandoned the rule of law.

In a properly administered state, the Governor and/or state authorities would have intervened long since to protect and uphold the rule of law, and ensure equality before the law for all citizens of the city.  That's unlikely to happen in Washington, where left-wing progressive politics dominate the state government.  The powers that be will adopt a snooty, high-toned, morally bankrupt perspective on the whole thing, and abdicate their responsibilities.
He has plenty of other thoughts which are worth reading.

But sure, yeah, tell me about that fancy degree you have

Since I think I had a harder curriculum in HIGH SCHOOL.

In North Carolina, 26 percent of UNC system students earned a “D,” “F,” or “W” (a withdrawal) in mathematics and statistics courses between fall 2015 and spring 2018. 
But instead of investigating ways to improve math education, North Carolina university leaders have decided to create alternate “pathways” for students who are less math-minded. According to UNC administrators, gateway and entry-level math courses—like college algebra—are “stumbling blocks” for too many students.

1)  The fact that these college kids are failing ENTRY LEVEL COURSES is an indictment of the publik skool sistim that produced them.  But if you don't know my opinion on the publik skool sistim by now, let me sum it up for you in a few short sentences:  Burn the publik skool sistim and the Department of "Education" to the ground.  Bulldoze the ashes.  Salt the earth where it stood so that it will be barren for centuries, and leave it as a warning to everyone else who passes by.

2)  This is just more confirmation that the universities and colleges in this country are nothing more than indoctrination centers instead of places of higher learning.  Oh look, little Johnny can't find the value of x.  Let's just take that pesky old x out of there, shall we?  That mean old x should be bothering you!  Here's your safe space!  Don't forget to vote Democrat!

And if you can't find the value of x, which is a basic mathematical concept, then you probably can't understand the concept of economics, either macro or micro, which means that you can't even be taught why socialism is so bad for a country.  You can only be indoctrinated to regurgitate the answers that your Marxist professors want to hear.

When this country eventually falls into chaos and war, one of the main causes will be the indoctrination of generations of kids by the university system, who taught them to emote rather than to think, and who poisoned their minds and their souls rather than provided ways to uplift and expand.
