California Schemin’

You might want to sit down in order to ease the shock of this one: California Governor Gavin “$800 Haircut” Newsom wants to slap a massive tax on the sale of legal firearms and then spend that money on things like outreach programs to LA street gangs… where for the first time, MS-13 members will have a chance to learn that murder, rape and theft are BAD and they shouldn’t do them because it’s not very nice.

Texas, Bill. I know you don’t like the weather in Florida. Leave. Now.

Why is it the Democrat solution to every problem is the throw taxpayer money at it, and then when it doesn’t work, claim its because they didn’t throw enough? RA is correct. The whole party is a grift. All they want is more more more. They are the Blob.

Notice that neither Democrat politicians nor their aids in the MSM ever look at the results of any policy. They only talk about the intended outcome. When that does not occur (inevitable as that is to us with logic centers) there is no after action review, or introspection about what went wrong. That is because fixing a problem was never the goal. Setting up another government program to spread the wealth is the goal. And they never end. A case in point: The US EPA Excerpt from EPA About Us Page: Concern about air and water pollution had spread in… Read more »

This is all true but in my mind we need to avoid throwing the baby out with the bathwater. If we just close down the EPA and turn our backs on industrial waste issues those rivers will become flammable again. The industrialists didn’t magically become moral at the expense of their bottom lines, they’ll take whatever route makes them the most money. That is what you get with unrestrained, unregulated free enterprise and why would it not be? Fines cut into the bottom line and act as great deterrents. Indeed, the climate change claptrap that is so in vogue happens… Read more »

If we just close down the EPA and turn our backs on industrial waste issues those rivers will become flammable again. I would argue with this to the extent that every state has an equivalent organization now to the EPA. VA DEQ are the ones who come to our plant every year, unannounced and randomly, to test the effluent coming from our plant to the sewers. I trust VA DEQ more to look after VA rivers and waterways than I do a bureaucrat in DC. If I lived in North Dakota or Alaska that would be more true. The industrialists… Read more »

The Demonrat America-hating scums-of-the-Earth prove themselves as traitors once again. The problem with publicizing the collapse of CA is that it will never make it out of CA. The Leftist main-swine-media-monolith will continue to propagandize the ignorant masses into “thinking” that Demonrats are Americans and that CA is still a prosperous part of America. I’m pretty tired of Americans claiming that Leftists “don’t understand” the value of the 2nd Amendment (and the rest of the Bill of Rights). The sewer rat Leftists “understand” it better than most Americans do. That’s precisely why they attack everything that’s American. If you have… Read more »

Right off the top of my head I came up with two “programs” that did all of this and had been doing it for years – Church and NRA. But these same far left nitwits got rid of them because they can’t hold up at all to valid competition.

Scott at 14:32 – “It’s a shame we have to waste so much time and money to …: I believe that is the point of the exercise. Issues like abortion, guns, and how to deal with them, race and so on …these issues are never going to be resolved because they are guaranteed fund raisers. Solving or resolving them stops the $$$ flow and so, will not happen.

Navin Gruesome only (gleefully) signed the legislation that was provided by the legislature …. which is actually the larger problem!
Gun ownership and purchase-ability is already seriously compromised and reduced in Kaliphoney, by way of gun safety standards and drop test requirements that few weapons can actually pass.

Yes,Bill, it’s insulting. And it’s meant to be. This is the form of humiliation that appeals to Evil.

How ’bout teaching gang kids how to shoot? Maybe then, they’ll do a better job of killing each other without hitting so many innocent bystanders

My wife, who’s a nurse, was talking with a county sheriff in Utah while she was delivering his baby a number of years ago and he made the same exact statement to her. Luckily the discussion was between his wife’s contractions!

The real conundrum, the truly baffling thing about Leftist politics, is not the Leftist agenda or the Leftist politicians that push it. There’s nothing baffling about them at all. They just want power, prestige and exemption from the consequences of their policies. What’s baffling is that people will support that agenda to their own very real detriment. If you make guns and ammo more expensive then people on the poorer end of the economic scale with be the most adversely affected. A person making six figures just grumbles about the added cost to the transaction of buying guns or ammo.… Read more »

This is an impressive article. Do you publish anywhere? I’d love to read more of your essays…

October 7, 2023 9:00 AM

Thank you Jennifer, but no, I don’t publish anywhere. I wouldn’t even know where to start with something like that. I come here because Bill and Co. are the closest to my views, and I think the most potent agents for real Conservatism, of anyone I’ve ever seen. I stay here for that reason and because they let me say anything, pretty much, that I want to. And they let me say it the way I want to. With the exception of some attention-deficit sufferers with small minds among the membership who think that anything more than a 256 character… Read more »

If I could get a copy without paying for it…”
Find a counter-culture bookshop that carries it, and steal it. That way, you deny Alinsky the profits from his ‘evil capitalistic venture’ and strike a blow for the proletariat!
Just be sure to disguise yourself in Birkenstocks and a hair shirt with ratty jeans (Levis, if you want to add additional support for the Leftists) when you make the “Liberation”.
It’s the ultimate “Playing by their rules” act…

I like your approach but I’m betting Harry being Harry is not an accomplished thief and would get himself caught. Your post gives me a chuckle but I’d hate to see our good friend Harry get himself in hot water. As it turns out, Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” is an open source publication available for free here … The various formats in which it is available are on the right side of the page and includes several common file types including EPUB, Kindle, PDF, Full Text and Torrent. It’s probably better if Harry goes there and gets a… Read more »

See my reply to Phil LeMay in this thread. Remember, you have a friend who has spent a significant portion of his life in the Information field. That would be me. If you need some information all you need do is ask. If it’s available, and even in this Information Age not all things are, I can find it.

Glad I caught your eye, and I hope that post gave you a chuckle. It was finely crafted with tongue firmly in cheek!
I also don’t wish to see our friend Harry in the hoosegow, so I endorse your linkage to the OS text.
(BTW, got a copy of the Anarchists Cookbook lying about? I’m thinking that might come in handy ITNF)

I used to have an original copy of the Anarchists Cookbook but it got lost somewhere along the many moves over the years. Or more likely stolen, now that I think about it. You can get it online but frankly I’m a bit worried about going looking for it. Even with a compound VPN connection. Which is a browser VPN stacked on a Windows NIC TAP full system VPN. I like my peace and quiet a lot so hate the idea of suits coming for a visit. I get nor want many visitors. Like the damned flies from neighboring livestock… Read more »

ACTS'(tm) comment about attracting the wrong sort of attention was part of the reason for my asking if there was an old copy lying about. Soft or hard copy, I would have expre$$ed interest in gaining a copy.
I guess I’ll have to hit up my other shady friends to request…

He is pretty easy to insult.
