Jack,

That’s interesting that they are now recognizing a panther as a subspecies.

Sue, vermin may be shot / trapped year round. No license needed.

Re AG Sessions' use of the word "obstruction" in his speech out here today.

A week or so ago, in my impeccably verbose style, I made the point how the Feds can prosecute sub-Mayoral levels of City personnel for obstruction.

In discovery--- get all the emails and policy documentation, and funding records. Have them point the collective finger at Mayor Schaaf.

She'll be out of office without firing a shot. Then prosecute her til the non-existant central valley dairy cows come home (thanks to the bullet train nonsense of former Mayor Brown).

This is getting good. Moar of anything!

MAGA!

Sue

Oh I know. I have a vermin shooter. I call them varmints, like the Clampetts.

JiB, confirmed cougar in Brookfield just last week. (Suburbia).

On FB a few weeks ago there were rumors of a large cat roaming between here and 30 miles away. No one I actually knew saw it.

Back when my eldest was living the debauche life here in Berkeley in her youth, she was traipsing home snot-flying drunk at 4am, "just before the dawn."

An errant possum was crossing the sidewalk in her path. Jess stumbled on it. The possum squealed as did Jess. As she turned to look back at what happened, Jess remembers the possum was standing there "glaring" at her, as if to ask "WTF, bitch?"

She reported that she had to throw away her boots because the collision had smeared the notorious greasy possum slick onto her kidskins. Ruined it with that gamey smell.

I knew bumpkins in southern 'ilnoy' that hunted and stewed them varmints. Nassy chit.

Extraneus

From susie's link:

McCarthy’s point here means that the surveillance authorized by the FISA warrant wasn’t limited to the personal communications of Carter Page; it only began there. To understand the “conspiratorial enterprise,” investigators and analysts have to follow up on all the entities Carter Page is in contact with.

As if we didn't know that.

Does anyone think that Sessions doesn't know it, too?

Jim Eagle

henry,

In Florida, they really do try to stay away of any dense population. Have a friend who is the top wildlife biologist for UF. He tracks and reports them. Lots of people get larger lynkx confused with Cougars, not to say your report did but it happens a lot in Florida because of all the new folks who move in and hear about Panthers. Like the hockey team:)

There have been sightings of large cats in the local communities this winter. Jack mentioned the Florida panther is a subspecies and most likely they are cougars or bobcats. The snowbirds freak out when one is sighted. There are three developments being built in our area. The Atlanta Braves are building a huge spring training/sports facility about five miles from here. There are thousands and thousands of acres being cleared. All those critters have to go somewhere.

(I meant broth.)

KK, I have recipes for raccoon. I'm happy to toss them in a pile for buzzards / coyotes.

2 Stories from the UK Telegraph, neither of which I can get to link, add to the info on the Russian Spy and his daughter poisoned in London.

The first story tells us that he is good friends with a Russian client of Christopher Steele's, who is supposed to have fed Steele some of his lines of Dossier BS.

The second story tells us that the Policeman that gave the Russian Spy and his daughter First Aid after they were poisoned, has himself been placed in Intensive care due to suffering from the same Nerve Agent poisoning. It must have been awful deadly stuff.

lyle

Wait a minute. Are we to understand Beasts can’t recognize a....cougar?!? 😎

henry

JiB, it was a confirmed cougar per DNR game wardens. They have pics. They saw it again the next day in nearby Glendale. Lots of unhunted deer in the suburbs.

Jim Eagle

If a Cougar is younger than you are they still a Cougar? A friend is asking:)

Local Fox channel runs banner during the news...blue wave hit red wall. ::cute::

Extraneus

From the Tablet piece:

What this means in practice is that, under a single warrant, anyone Page had a text or phone call with in the Trump campaign during the brief months of his association with it in 2016, was fair game, as a direct connection, all the way through the end of the last warrant-extension period on Page in October 2017. The second-hop connections of those initial contacts—meaning everyone that those people had contact with—are also fair game. In other words, it’s likely that almost everyone on the Trump campaign staff was included in the universe of first- and second-order contacts of Carter Page. The entirety of their correspondence is therefore also covered by the initial warrant, regardless of whether or not they ever met or corresponded with Carter Page, or whether that correspondence referred to him in any way, directly or indirectly.

Extraneus,

It is a Paula Deen recipe and it's chicken broth, milk, sour cream and chives as I remember. If she asks for Paula Deen's mashed cauliflower it will probably pop up. If she can't find it, I will do a search.

Jim Eagle

lyle,

All I am saying is that how can a woman be a cougar if her prey is older than her. Of course, I would be just a kid.

I made the mashed cauliflower recipe the other day and it is a keeper. Next time I will substitute cream cheese for sour cream just to see what happens.

Good story about "Meow," Momto2.

Many years ago when the FBI was tapping Morton Halperin's phone line an old friend fropped by for a few minutes. At some point he asked to use our phone (this was before mobiles). His son and one of Morton's were in some kind of scouting thing together and they used weird made up Indian names for each other and the group. My friend mumbled something incomprehensible to me about an upcoming meeting. I'm sure that conversation was tapped and I still wonder what the hell the FBI made of it.

narcisocenfl

It wasnt mark halperin was it, yes they must have been befuddled. Steeles stupid lark may have turned fatal, as he trustees the wrong people.

Texas Liberty Gal

So Sessions has someone investigating the very same issues that Gowdy & Goodlatte want investigated but doesn't let them know he's doing it?? I'm confused.

Beasts of England

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I hope some of you got to see Todd Rokita on Tucker Carlson's show tonight. He was very firm that this illegal immigrant thing by the dems was all about importing democrat voters because their policies are so bad for American citizens, and made a point of how we have to get out and vote in the midterms to support the President.

I am more convinced than ever that I will vote for him in the primary in May. Tucker complimented him on articulating clearly what was going on.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Texas Liberty Gal,


what this tells me is that there are leakers in the House and Sessions wants to keep info confidential until he has his ducks in a row.

narcisocenfl

Yes he seems very sensible, like my congressman.

Beasts of England

Damnit - I meant mid-forties, of course. :)

clarice feldman

Yes, I think Mark was the kid==age seems right. I wish I could remember the conversation but it was something nutso like Chief Running Dog is calling us to the Sleeping Bull Teepee when the Sun Rises Over the Moon in Sleepy Hollow.

Hey fellow Texans,

--I've noticed this with electricians. Not endorsing what the tree guy did, but because I don't know very much, I'm super cautious doing anything electrical. But electricians come in, and they never shut off the circuit breaker like you're supposed to, and just go right at the wiring or switches.--

The chain doesn't turn while the saw is idling and it's safer to have it already running than have to start it in the tree.
I can attest that timber fallers do indeed have the highest worker comp rates on planet earth.

If it's changing an outlet or switch I often don't turn the breaker off either. Ya get bit once in awhile but not a big deal.

PDinDetroit

Man, I am jealous!

I would love to see Lynx/Bobcat more often. I have only seen 2 in the wild my entire life. I love cats, have had them my entire life. We just had to put down Daisy recently, I rescued her from my mom's cat colony in 2003 so she had a good long life.

There have been cougar sightings for years in West Bloomfield MI, just a few miles away. The MI DNR finally admitted we have them in the lower peninsula. I really think I would like to keep my distance from them.

We have deer come through every day, 2 of them look ready to give birth but not sure when that happens. The "alpha mom" now comes into the yard and we throw older bread to her. She finally allowed her 2-year-old to join her the other day.

Jake the Dog (Tri-Color Black Border Collie) and I tracked down a pack of 5 coyotes a few years ago. I saw the prints in the side yard and noted it was not long ago (Jake was really ready to go). I donned my hunting clothes sans rifle and off we went (but always carrying my pistolas). There is a 1/2 mile of woods across the main road, which is where they went. We caught up to them on the edge of a field while it was still light out. Jake growled and barked, scattering them into the other side woods. They gave some parting yips, but Jake shut them up pretty quick. Have not seen any tracks in a long time...

Not sure if this was discussed or linked here, as it's from the NYT, which does not usually have anything worthwhile.

Right around when my dad left, when I was 3 years old, our neighborhood on Long Island experienced a crime wave of burglaries, which led my mother to keep guns in various parts of the house in case she needed one at a moment’s notice. That decision turned a story with a potentially tragic ending into one about a heroic single mother and her young daughter. Our incident won’t show up in the statistics about gun use in self-defense scenarios. I doubt my mother ever reported it to the police.

PD,

You'd have loved the Bobcat Mrs H and I saw just north of Santa Cruz in the parking lot of Calder Ranch park. I got to within 10 yards of it as it was calmly eating a pigeon and looked at me to say "you don't want to bother me by getting closer than that". I'm sure she has a few photos. Beautiful markings and looked well fed.

Back in the day, this old software guy was known to debug some hardware. I just took the watch off (no rings at the time) and got elbow deep. Hardly ever turned off a breaker. Right up until I started working with megawatt+ power electronics that, frankly, made me a bit nervous just being around.

Capn', I pointed out to MRS and JR yesterday, that it's been 17 months since DJT won, and since RODHAM and the Hysterical left has been on this witch hunt. HOW LONG? How much of an elected President's term will be road blocked and interfered with by these FULL COMMIES?? It's beyond anything imaginable. RODHAM loses, the COMMIES claim RUSSIA "hacked" our ELECTIONS. Lies, lies and more lies. Our ELECTION is being INTERFERED WITH EVERY SINGLE F(REDACTED FOR LENT) day. What could INTERFERE with our ELECTION more than what is currently occuring???
Sessions had NO REASON to recuse himself. Of all the REDACTED for LENT and moaning about RIP VAN SESSIONS, he NEVER SHOULD HAVE RECUSED HIMSELF.
A LIBTARD never would. This needs to end, before it gets VIOLENT,

Hi, my name is Andy and I recommend to buy only Original Russian Decorating Tips. Do not buy it from China!
These copies are made in China, they are similar but not the same as the original, as our laser cuts are much better and our Steel has been tested to comply for Europe and World Wide food safety. Our steel will not Rust, safe to use in the dishwasher. The Chinese even copy our own photos to promote their cheap quality product, they also produce smaller nozzles than the originals, although some now produce the same size again copying us, the tips are very thin.

The same game warden that told me Panthers don’t really exist had a pet bobcat. His son married my niece. I used to go in their house and that damn bobcat would be sitting on top of a cabinet or piece of furniture ready to poince. It never did but it gave me the creeps.

NEW THREAD, losers😉

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Clariice,

That;s funny!

There is a grain of truth in his complaints, though.

Years ago when my ex-husband was touring Germany, the equipment manufacturer for longwall mining said he would not sell the Chinese less than five installation assemblies.

The reason was that he knew they would be copied and re-sold, so he wanted to get as much profit as he could up front. (Each one cost millions of dollars.)

matt - deplore me if you must

We had a bobcat in very bad shape show up in our neighbor's yard the other day. It had cataracts and was just pathetic. They are shy creatures. There is someone up in Idaho or Montana who breeds a domesticated gene pool. That would be the need in this household as the Aussie Shepherd would eat anything smaller and less fierce.

There is an overpopulation of mountain lions around here as well. They need a lot of space, and so are pushing into the national forest and suburbs both. One of them slaughtered a corral full of 4H baby goats last year.

Captain Hate

Sessions should have never recused himself. I've gone back and forth with JackStraw on this and him recusing himself meant he isn't playing by the same rules as Stedman and LoLy. And any convictions that come from Mueller's fishing expedition are all on him.

Manuel Transmission

Well, this will probably be the thread killer given how long this one has run, but here goes.

Small arms shooting, especially training young uns. Like my handle, you really need a manual transmission. That is, a bolt action, or at most a lever action. If a kid started with an autoloader (s)he will never treat the process with the right respect. It is not a video game.

After about 12 yrs of plinking, I joined triple rifle teams (Az State, AFROTC, NRA). I put many thousands of rounds through the barrel of a Winchester 52D, one hand loaded round at a time while hitting a 1 mm dot at 50 ft. With a precise 3 lb trigger and a bedded bbl, it was never the gun's fault when the bullet didn't hit that 1 mm dot.

Next, regardless of what your basic training drill sgt might have beat into you, you basically never clean your weapon. If one of us did that, it would often take 1K rounds to get it back to a predictable behavior. Of course, AR-15s need to have their gas tube cleaned after a 1K rounds or so.

I've probably lost most of you by now, but having wasted about $1MM on exotic lubricants, I can easily say that a couple drops of the right oil (Iggy has some) overwhelms any other fussing with the actions. They just get better over time. If you think about what the mega-tuning shops do, they just wear things carefully the way you do when you run many 1Ks of rounds through the action. My new Micro9 may never get tuned in, because I can never get enough through it for it to start behaving properly, unless they finally offer spring kits for it. (As I mentioned awhile back, I can't fire my .357 DW in DA mode, because the spring kit doesn't hit hard enough reliably. But that is what you need to hit steel at 100 yds.)
