Good morning, JOM.

rse

Does this mean a run on reloading equipment in CT's future?

Out and about yesterday morning I saw two car tractor trailer rigs picking up the exotic cars sent to atlanta for the super bowl and now headed back to miai. Took pictures for red. Two brightly painted ferraris, one lotus, and a rolls royce sedan. Looked like they had room for at least 10 more.

Re. gang bangers practicing? It happens.

For years, I shot at an outdoor public range in a state park. Unsupervised. Just drive up, take your stuff to whoever open lane you liked and shoot. Self clearing. Worked just fine.

The bangers from the nearby city started showing up. Now since literally everyone was armed, the bangers were model citizens. Well, except for their gun-handling practices. First, the dads bringing the kids stopped. Then the older guys. Then me.

That someone that says this, can be given a political commentator job on a national TV program is unbelievable.

"CNN Political Commentator Van Jones criticized President Trump’s State of the Union as “a psychotically incoherent speech with cookies and dog poop.”

Jones said, “I saw this as a psychotically incoherent speech with cookies and dog poop. He tries to put together, in the same speech, these warm, kind things about humanitarianism and caring about children, at the same time, he is demonizing people who are immigrants in a way that was appalling.”"

https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2019/02/05/van-jones-trumps-sotu-was-a-psychotically-incoherent-speech-with-cookies-and-dog-poop/

The leftist talking heads are so childish and .......stupid. It's hard to believe they are paid to give their views.

President Trump didn't demonize immigrants at all.
I guess Jones doesn't understand the difference between legal immigrants & citizens of other countries that did NOT immigrate, but just illegally invaded America.

The "horror" the writer is referring to is probably the picture shown in the article. This was likely the moment when Trump was talking about late term abortions. Manchin was one of the few Democrats who applauded Trump's comments. The look on AOC's face as well as all the other female Democrats who support late term abortion is one of the images that will last well into the 2020 election cycle.

Jack is Back!

Thanks All, Just finishing up a nice birthday breakfast furnished by Mrs. JiB. Today is also the birthday of Ronaldus Maximus, Babe Ruth, Bob Marley, Aaron Burr, and Eva Braun. We really are a mixed bag:-)

I guess there were no surprises last night. GOP and Indies loved it, Dems sort of hated it, and the full commie, was apoplectic.

The Infamous Ignatz

--This type of bribery is why I don't see an armed revolution as possible. The heroes will follow the money. Just like with their pensions.--

Do you know anyone who has served in the military or any gun owners?
Have you ever studied the history of insurrections and revolutions?
That you keep saying the same thing indicates to me that you haven't, at least not enough to understand the subject.
I'm not going to engage in an endless discussion of the matter since we've been around this bend before but I will simply point out as I have before that a ragtag bunch of goatsuckers in Afghanistan fought not only the US, but the Soviets before them and the British Empire before them until they all left pretty much defeated.
You have this idea in your head which seems more informed by your low opinion of cops and the military, while wrongly assuming their choice will decide the fate of any rebellion. It won't. If every cop and soldier turned against the citizenry [which they won't] they would still lose.
I'll leave Daniel Webster to make the proper argument;

Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States.

It was true then and is even more true today.

Buckeye

As usual, Iggy says it far better than I possibly could.

Buckeye

Military is mostly "regular guys"

Do you really think they would disarm their fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters and cousins?

I have perused the internet to see how Trump's "you weren't supposed to do that" comment was being reported. The most repeated headline was that he said it as the Dem women started a USA chant.

Pelosi made it out to be that Trump was upset at the success of the women.

Although I know these scum have come to the wrong conclusion, I am still unsure what he meant. During the speech I thought he was pointing out that their gestures were inappropriate for the venue, as if he was told that they would abide by a certain decorum which they didn't follow.

This morning I wondered if he was telling them that they have been told for so long that they won't succeed that their "rule breaking " should be acknowledged.

What is everyone else's take on his comment?

Jack is Back!

That photo in the Lileks essay, of the bartender pulling a beer for Martin Milner raised a question with me: Is he a Cicerone Certified Beer Server?

Well said. If I had wanted to follow the money I wouldn't have voluntarily joined the Army. I would have gotten a different degree that would have allowed me to make a lot more money in the corporate world than I made as an enlisted soldier and then later as an officer.

Puleeze, TK, Pelosi can only stretch reality so far.

Trump was obviously poking fun at the Dem demonstration in favor of something that he said and supported.

What is everyone else's take on his comment?

Was he just saying that women candidates (mostly Dems) hadn't been expected to do as well as they did? A gracious acknowledgement of their electoral success, which he'll posit as a plus even though it's not what he'd have preferred?

When the National Enquirer published explicit text messages between Amazon founder Jeffrey P. Bezos and the woman he was having an affair with, the world’s richest man made clear he wanted to find out how the tabloid got hold of his private communications.

Bezos commissioned an investigation into the Enquirer’s investigation of his love life, thereby leaping into a roiling mix of political attacks and conspiracy theories featuring the president of the United States, key figures in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election, minor Hollywood celebrities and the owner of The Washington Post, Bezos himself.

Depending on whom you believe, the Enquirer’s exposé on Bezos’s affair was a political hit inspired by President Trump’s allies, an inside job by people seeking to protect Bezos’s marriage, or no conspiracy at all, simply a juicy gossip story.

To our wire service:

When will the Associated Press learn that judgmental reporting ABOUT an event is not reporting the event?

Clearly, Julie Pace and Catherine Lucey must have misunderstand what they were called upon to report.

On short notice we were obliged to write our own news summary.

Also, we searched AP for “transcript” and did not find a copy of Trump’s address. Later, we inadvertently stumbled over it labeled as “Text”. Next time, please call it a transcript and provide a short online link for our print edition. We were obliged to create our own link to the White House.

AP wrote:

Headline: Trump claims 'ridiculous partisan' probes may upset progress
By JULIE PACE and CATHERINE LUCEY, Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Facing a divided Congress for the first time, President Donald Trump warned emboldened Democrats in his State of the Union speech Tuesday that "ridiculous partisan investigations" could derail economic progress.

Trump peppered his speech with calls for bipartisanship, urging Washington to govern "not as two parties, but as one nation." But his message clashed with the rancorous atmosphere he has helped cultivate in the nation's capital, as well as the desire of most Democrats to block his path during his next two years in office

What we wrote:
Headline: America is strong but much yet to do

WASHINGTON — Speaking directly to Americans and rank and file senators and representatives President Donald Trump worked to bypass the media narratives to push for unified action to meet explicit needs for the country.

Reporting after the speech, many in the mainstream media, including the Associated Press, reported on previous acrimony between the Democrat leadership and Trump rather than focus on the numerous times during the speech that Trump earned applause, some standing, from both sides of the aisle, including from Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi. ...

Iggy, I don't share your faith that their will be an organized group large enough to physically topple tyranny in some future revolution because I don't see that group passively toppling anything at the ballot box.

Trump is a major win, but it is was a squeaker that was hamstrung by a loss of the House in 2018.

Where are these people.?

My network includes many veterans and LEO. Not so many fire fighters(2). I have faith in these people, but not in the 2 dozen feds that made a spectacle at Roger Stone's arrest. I have no faith in the LEOs that blasted the paper ladies when Dorner was on the loose. I have no faith in the fire fighters and sheriffs that stopped their community from saving their own homes during the Cedar fire.

I have shared the story before. One of my construction customers made several trips into the fire with his water truck and saved several houses on his own. The fire was still manageable but the first responders followed orders and retreated.

Those same public employees raised my property tax so this wouldn't happen again. Except in 2007 it happened again.

I do not presume that all these people are bad, but I also don't accept that they are all saints, let alone constitutional adherents.

Why? Because of history.

Threadkiller

I forgot the crucial part of the retreating public employees. They stopped all private water trucks from going back to the houses before they burned. The guarded the hydrants at the bottom of the hill and threatened arrest if any private citizen wished to take matters into their own hands.

Iggy, sadly I have to agree with TK on suspecting that there are not enough Iggys to get the ball rolling to oppose our being consumed by the blob.

If Trump is unsuccessful, then like any decent drunk, I think we will have to hit rock bottom before we can rebuild from the wreckage.

In that respect, I see the current outrageous abortion moves as proof positive that not only is a lot of our population not just "indifferent" but are downright fine with what to us seems laughably wrong. Ditto the opposition to open borders and one world government. Not just "indifferent" but perfectly OK. I don't know how you save a population that will kill perfectly good babies and will hand over their lunch money to all the bullies on the playground.

Captain Hate

Trump is a major win, but it is was a squeaker that was hamstrung by a loss of the House in 2018.

I don't view that as a loss. The GOP is as compromised of an entity as the DoJ and State Department and in just as much in need of a purge. Even though I don't obsess about polls, the reaction to last night's speech is a clear indication that the public firmly supports the direction that DJT is taking the country.

“I thought it was great. I think he's scared,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) told reporters when asked about Trump’s remarks. “He sees that everything is closing in on him and he knows that he's losing the battle of public opinion.”

TK; "two Americas"
Ig: "Have you ever studied the history of insurrections and revolutions? ... I will simply point out as I have before that a ragtag bunch of goatsuckers in Afghanistan fought not only the US, but the Soviets before them and the British Empire before them"

I've, of course, highly snipped both posts.
I haven't come to a conclusion on this issue but as an exercise, let me play a bit of Devil's Advocate.
It's true that the Afghanis successfully resisted. It's true that US conservatives are well armed.
But let's enumerate some of the other points.
1) Some US citizens are brave and well-informed. Others are spending all their time on the Kardashians and watching sports on the couch. Is the US citizenry as tough as the primitive Afghanis?
2) Cops and the military are full of exemplary people. But there are plenty of bad cops. There are plenty of time-servers with no moral position. There are plenty of ex-military that run as Dems. My oldest friend, a burly, beer-drinking ex-Marine, voted for Obama and is deeply disappointed that I support Trump.
3) Did you ever expect:
School teachers to willingly become propagandists?
Doctors to put the gov't ahead of the Hippocratic Oath, for example by asking patients if they own a gun?
Banks to consider not providing services to clients whose political views they disagree with?
Universities who consider Republicans to be controversial? Too controversial to be allowed on campus despite being half the population.
No one if the FBI willing to step forward on the shenanigans going on?
Did you ever expect the military to become a bastion of political correctness to the point where ships crash and basic combat training suffers?

In Civil War I, the South expected to win because of some combination of
1) being right
2) fighting on home soil
3) living an outdoor life with shooting
Didn't turn out that way. The North eventually smothered them with industrial production.

We should be wary of expecting CWII to be a slam dunk when the other side has so many of the institutions under their control ... and, frankly, is the strength of character and willingness to sacrifice on our side so strong? Or will many of us slumber and choose not to rise up ... should the time come?

Also, keep in mind that tech gives gov't many more weapons, both actual weapons and psychological and propaganda weapons to control an unruly population.

Like I say, I haven't come to a conclusion. Still, while Iggy's post contains good points, I don't think they are the only points.

Jack is Back!

Dave,

Thanks for the followup on the beer pulling. But that guy sure does look like Milner (Route 66). Maybe he was modeling before he got his big gig in TV and movies.

I agree with OL, and TK. Unless, we the constitutionalists are pre-emptively attacked, I don't see law-abiding, gun owners starting a revolution unless it is the prepers, white supremists, or a posse comitatas type outfit. Not that I wouldn't like to see them try it, the full commie, baby killing, open borders crowd.

All they have now is Antifa, and they are a bunch of chicken-shit cowards who so far have attacked from behind. For me its still the ballot box, and reforming how we educate our kids in Civics, History, and political philosophy, which may be a moutain to high.

MissMarple2

Old Lurker,

You and TK do not live in my neighborhood, which is working class southside Indy, comprised of people who are mosrly descended from the Appalachian folks who moved up here after WWII to work at Allison's or the Ford plant.

These are people who are mostly armed, and do not like people telling them what to do.

As far as the abortion question, I think most people weren't aware of the procedure's details and were horrified when they learned of it. My daughter certainly was. I thought it very good that President Trump emphasized prohibiting it "after the baby can feel pain." That hit them square between the eyes.

The Infamous Ignatz

--Where are these people.?--

Where were they in 1760? Fighting with the British against the Frogs.
Where were they in France before the Bastille was stormed?
Where were they in Moscow until the dumbass Krauts sent Lenin back to Russia instead of executing the bastard?
And a hundred or a thousand other examples, including many virtually unarmed populaces overthrowing tyrants.

There is a vast, loose subculture of heavily armed, defiant people, far better armed and trained than any previous potential insurrection in history. It of course is not a majority of voters. It doesn't have to be and never is until the rebellion succeeds, when suddenly everyone says they were manning the barricades.
There is no population that can't be pushed too far. Some of them are unarmed and have no history of defiance of authority and tyranny and they seldom rebel. That's not the US.

It's understandable that people embrace conspiracy theories when the world is so damned odd. Did you know, for instance, that in 1893 an American author wrote a book titled "Baron Trump's Marvellous Underground Journey", where young Baron is shown around Russia by his mentor, named Don? And that the same obscure author wrote another book a couple of years later about the last President, and that a member of the (unnamed) President's cabinet was Pence? True, true (even Snopes says so); the link goes to the Library of Congress' download of "Baron".

That was a good post.

The Eeyores apparently believe there aren't enough American patriots that will display the courage and will necessary to win an existential struggle that so many here believe is already in progress or inevitable. My personal opinion is that if the SHTF and the bullets start flying, the American patriots with a sense of conviction, duty and willingness to make the ultimate sacrifice required to win a war will easily crush the Progtard/SJWs. Does anyone really think a group of people typified by pussy beta males are going to put up any kind of resistance against American patriots? My prediction is they will shit their pants and flee at the first sign of danger.

I like Iggy to tell us how he sees the first shots fired in our rebellion. Do you pick out a target or many, who represent the oppression, or is it just a POV we are rebelling against?

This is the scenario I have a hard time realizing. If it is a Waco 2.0, the first Waco didn't go that well. Is it some prepper in the Idaho badlands facing down an over-armed FBI? I just can't wrap my head around how this all starts.

But it would make a great thriller and movie. Maybe, JamesD can give it a go.

Captain Hate

What is it with Virginia pols in the 80s and blackface? I'm not saying there was anything particularly racist about it so much as it just seems strange.

Was you misrepresentation of what I wrote intended to put me on the defensive to make it easier for you to debate? That is your standard debate tactic here. I think you are well aware I refuse to play the game by your rules.

Have a MAGA day.

PS the final score is Iggy 1 TK 0.

Hopefully the bullets aim for your moving goal posts, Tom. They will come out of the war unscathed.
