The Bolt Carrier Group

Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
As per requested, I'ma doing a bit o'breakdown today on the Bolt Carrier Group for the AR/M-4/M-16 series of rifles.
Two Main Types.
M-16 and AR-15 BCG
Main difference is about a 1/2 inch of steel shaved off the ass end of an AR.  This is to prevent the AR from being able to lock the M-16 Hammer into the sear that allows full on rock n'roll.  More on lower parts in another episode.
Now, as seen, the parts to the BCG include the Carrier that the bolt rides in, the cam pin that holds the bolt in place, the gas key which allows the bolt to operate, and the lil itty-bitty retaining pin that holds the firing pin in place as well.  That pin is best known as "that fuckin' pin" or "where the fuck did it go?".

Yah... teeny pin, but VERY important.  Holds the whole thing together.

So, The principle of operation:
Bullet goes >boom<, gas goes behind, gets diverted into the gas tube and shoots a squirt of gas into the gas key.  Gas key is pushed back and vents gas into the rear of the bolt causing the whole bolt itself to cycle to allow the bolt to unlock from the cams and wash, rinse repeat.

I mean there's a -bit-  more in that, but if you want to  be super nit-picky, great... go ahead but trolls sayin' "That's not right" are going to be ban-hammered as this's my house, and when Babe Ruth is at the plate, one does not dare to pick up a baseball bat Aye?
OK... Pieces parts.

Rule #1 of owning a Combat Rifle: Have Spares.  One is None, Two is Good, MOR is Better.

I keep, as a rule
5 Spare Firing Pins, 2 are Titanium, 3 Steel
3 SETS of gas rings.  Meaning 9 individual rings.  Each bolt needs 3 to safely operate.
1 Spare COMPLETE Bolt AND Carrier Group, tested and headspaced.
2 Spare Gas Tubes for each 'flavor' rifle... in my case, 2 Carbine Length, 2 Midsized.
2 Spare Gas Keys with Bolts
2 Spare Extractors with springs
And Pin... Oh my fucking God the pins.  Try when you don't count 'em individually, but by the ounce... like a quarter pound of spare pins, springs and fiddly bits.

I got a couple of Harbor Freight lil pin-and-screw boxes to segregate and separate them into their proper families...  Get the good ones if you can, as you do not want to have one of these boxes pop open if the cat knocks it off the workbench.  Ask me how I know...

Also, the extractor pin on the face of the bolt. Don't fuck with it.  We had a very specific tool we used to replace that, and I don't think outside of training I ever fucked with that.  Leave it alone.

Now, lots have emailed and asked what the most common point-of-failure I've seen while working on these rifles over the years.  Whelp, the most 'stuff' I've seen is pretty usual for DotMil weapons, i.e. weapons that're really old and rebuilt hunnerds of times... shit that have been in multiple wars...

Most common issue(s) are interconnected.
Worn/Mushroomed Gas Key and Gas Tubes.  Gas keys and tubes that're worn out are noticeable.  The light aluminum of the tube gets worn after a couple thousand rounds...
Gas tube on top is worn but serviceable
Gas tube on bottom?  Worn smooth, needs replacing.
Mushrooming, (and I can't find a good picture) is when usually the Gas key is slightly mis-aligned with the gas tube, usually because some over-eager Private jammed a cleaning rag in between the gas tube on the interior of the upper receiver, bending it just enough that the face of the gas key starts getting beaten by and on the tube.  It is steel, but with a really fine edge on it that if misaligned can fuck it up.  That and boneheads who drop the fucking BCG can damage it as well...
Another issue:
Can you see it?
Yep
No staked Gas Key.
It should look like this:
IF you have to re-do a gas key, make sure you have the tool for it.  Do not beat the fuck out of your BCG with a screwdriver and a mallet.  Bubba shit right there Aye?
Now some folks go "Well... fine, I'll have a few things but why so many?"
Because you never rely on the supply chain.  Ask how those gomers who didn't have anything more than a hunnerd rounds on hand for their primary AND secondary total when the cost of Boolits went from $.20 cents a round to over $2 dollars a round and those who didn't have at least 1000 primers onhand when they too disappeared.

Case in point, 7 years ago, plain as day... I had my first firing pin break ever during a casual range day.  Fired 3 rounds out of 10, and then no more bang-bang.  Check the round 3 times, and finally was like, "no dimple on the primer... hmmn"  Took the bolt apart and sure as fuck, the verrrrry tip of the firing pin had sheared off.  First time I've ever had that happen.  And the bitch?

I didn't have a spare with me.
So yeah, spares = good
No spares = bad
Keep it in mind.
Especially since they appear to be lining up to outlaw the sale/purchase of spares.
Get 'em while you can
Before you Can't

Dr Seuss... REALLY?

Greeting Me Droogs N Droogettes!
Fuckin' Aye.  These wankers never seem to slow down.  The 'gas' on the fire of going after the best childrens book writer ever IMO is fucking appalling.  I mean REALLY?  I dig that the Left is a voracious critter as a whole but Dr. Fuckin' Seuss?
The Babylon Bee did it best with the above...
What kills me is that they're so uneducated... these theoretical fuckin educators
"Dr Seuss is a raaaaaaaaay cist!"
Why?
Because Niggers can't even read at that level?
Probably.
Green Eggs and Ham are indicators of poverty I guess... old, aged food apparently which reminds the darkies that they only eat dumpster food.  
Fuckers
Seuss was one of the best writers for simple, easy-to-learn and fun books
I still have mine from when I was a kid
Hell, I even have a modern retrospective of his War Drawings from World War 2
I got that one on the bookshelf Aye.
He did a LOT of anti-Hitler and calling out anti-semitism.
He banged on alllll the bad guys in World War 2
And you know whut?
None of those 'supposed' educators have probably never heard of these parts of his work.
Fucking ig'nint Motherfuckers
Fuck Your Feeeeeeewings.
I.
Hate.
You.
All.
I hope they all die, falling under a Mac Truck, tasting their own blood as it rushes up their esophagus and chokes them as the weight of 20 tons crushes the very life from them, leaving only a quarter-inch paste of human meat, staining the ground like bad roast beef.  Serve 'em all right.  Let the buzzards scrape 'em up.

Make of it what you will.

So Much For Joe

Greetings Me Droogs n Droogettes!
I give Slo about 30-45 days max at this point
He just had what I call his "Kennedy/C.I.A." moment.
Meaning he's come out publicly in favor of allowing the serfs to form a Union against Amazon.  In their eyes, that's a killin'.  Amazon has been notorious in it's anti-Union stance.  No matter the 'niceness' of the message, they are hardcore anti-Union.  Almost as bad as Wallyworld from my unnastanding.
Union Busting has a long history in the United States
The above pic was from the 30s when the Military was in on Busting up Unions as "communist infiltration" and shytte... pretty accurate IMO.

But what with the tech Oligarchs running around, having thought that they bought and paid for the current pResident and all that entails, you know that they gotta be pissed that someone is encouraging them to start pushing back against the near-slavelike conditions the lower paid peasants who're stuck working at the Zon have to endure.

It's been attributed to JFK that he said he wanted to "splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds”.  Shortly thereafter, he caught a very public case of the "deads."  It's always been questionable as to the veracity of the quote, but it is suspicious that the C.I.A. shortly after invented the term 'conspiracy theory' to disavow and degrade any questioning vis-a-vis Presidential Case O ''The Deads' which leads me personally to believe they had something to do with it.

And now?
Slo just came out and told his new owners "Fuck You, pay them" vis-a-vis Unionization of the Slaves. And slaves they are.  Indeed.  Go and check out some of the expose that -some- of the news has done in the past... In particular the Brits have done some insane uncover-brother levels of gen-you-wine investigative reporting on the conditions of the fulfillment centers that the Zon is running over there.
Nothing here in the New Peoples Republic of the Socialist Untied States.  and yeah, 'untied' is intentional.  The Enemedia can't afford to upset their paymasters doncha know?

The Brits however, in the quest for MOR taxes have cut the media loose on the Zon, and the place from all reports is just as bad, if not worse than some of the Chinese Slave-Powered Manufacturers.  One bathroom, half a mile a way, and you can only use like 3 minutes per time...

I know I'm on meds which means I need at least 7-8 minutes for a Number 2 download... I'd last one day in a Zon Slave Pit before they ace me out.  Hell, they have fuckers die while working and it gets allllll covered up and buried with minor fines, and even they don't end up paying them.  The poor fuckers who die?  Their families get a pittance-payout, and God help them if they don't take it... no one fucks with the Zon.  

Except now Slo...
It'll be a  quiet 'offing' more n'likely.  They've made The D.C. Green Zone pretty much impenetrable.  So unless they ramp up their game, ain't no way they're going to be able to Lee-Harvey his ass with an AR-15, despite how they'd positively love the optics of that to further the gun ban chess piece.  They'll slip a lil sumtin'-sumtin' into Joes soup, and that'll be that... if'n they haven't already started the accelerating the process... his mental acuity is rapidly approaching a tipping point... almost like someone or something has been adding... oh... say Mercury into his chow?   I wouldn't put it past them to keep him in puppet mode, with the ability to throw the "Off" switch on the dummy, once his usefulness is expired fully.

Wifey is Happy

Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
After the Gray Man sale, I was able to get Wifey's anniversary present out of layaway without resorting to insane credit card abuse.  $400 wasn't too bad, not for what she wanted.  And man, she's a Happy Happy Girl.
A solid mahogany, non-veneered 1910 Rice-Carver (? no fucking clue Aye?)  style Vanity

She is, absolutely stoked
First thing however, is to get it properly 'loaded'
Putting Ye Olde Vest Pocket FN1906 Browning .25 'Nightstand' Weapon in the topmost drawer that she can reach in the middle of the night... seems really apropos to have a handgun that's from the same timeframe +/- 4 years as the go-to nightstand weapon.

Of course that's quite literally the 'last ditch weapon of last resort' as a .25 will only irritate a home invader.  But, in this case, it's a perfect fit/match for the whole thing.

We found the vanity in a GIANT antique store that Spawn told us aboot.
4 acres of Antique Mall
OMFG soooooo much stuff.
And Wifey found this thing on our first ten minutes in the store, at which point she slapped a Cee-note on the table and put it on layaway.  I surprised her today by paying it off after Gray Man bought the long arm which made me momentarily solvent.  

Yeah... that lasted aboot 24 hours Aye?
BUT
Bills are paid, and I'm happy and Wifey is thrilled.
Can't argue with that.
Kills me too.  Serbian War Criminal was drafted into using his MONSTER F250 DeathFord to go git it.  He's got a 32 foot R.V. that he needs to haul around so he's got the giant assed P/U for the towing, and the Vanity fit jes' fine.

Man, this'sa great weekend
Only possibly 'racially charged' aspect I can put out... the Vanity was handmade in 1910... by Irish Immigrants... Not one piece of diversity had a hand in it's epic creation.  Made by whypeepoo, for whypeepo... fuck all the rest

ALSO QUICK ADDENDUM: I'm offishully old. I just got word that Spawn #1 is engaged to Shorty. News to follow!

Blogshoot ARR

Greetings Me Droogs n Droogettes!
Oh. My. God.
First time in many moons I missed a poast yesterday. Spent like a shell casing after Blogshoot.  Me and Sapper went at got there a wee bit late as we stopped for vittles on the way at a nice lil froo-froo Breakfasty place, and then went and met up with the gang.

Pretty respectable turnout and my thanks to Borepatch and TQotW for hosting.

Divemedic gave a nice rundown on Tourniquet use that came off of Aesop's poast of same, but added on a fascinating class on chest seals that I hadn't had, nor learn't aboot afore.  Good training Aye?
Checking over my gear, apparently I -don't- have these so's that's gotta be attended to.
Other things
The AR-10 shot like a dream.  Holy crap it's a tack driver.  I was on paper with the first 3 shots, all over the paper however as my hangover and nerve damage which leaves me shaking like a leaf on a good day didn't help.  But 3 on paper at 150 yards?  Not bad.  Once dialed in it's going to be dangerous.  However, I won't be doing that.  Gray Man waved a fistload of Cee-notes in my face and it was 'sold American' right then n there.  Wasn't planning on it, and man, didn't want to, but I'm broke as fuck and it was a insta-decision.

Dammit.   

I also tried out the Ghillie suit and rifle wrap.  Interesting tests there... the ghillie itself worked just like it did for me 30+ years ago in sniper school... the Ghillie rifle-wrap?  Notsomuch, leastways on the semi auto rifles.  Bolt gun only for that item.  The jute kept blowing into the chamber and fouling the lock on the BCG

Bad jute and juju.

Great food put on by Borepatch's Queen, and Miguel from GunFreeZone ran the El Presidente timed shoot.  And no, I sucked on that too.  A jam as well as all over the fucking place, too amped on adrenaline and the aforementioned hangover.  I gotta stop boozing at least two days before the shoot man...

Leastways I was having a better day than Sapper.  First run on El Presidente, his magwell on his Poly80 blew out, dumping the ammo everywhere.  Cheap Ko-reeeen mag apparently.  Another lesson learned.  Checking his stuff, he only had 3 mags, all of the same shitty brand so I loaned him 2 of my gen-you-wine Grock 17 mags and ok... back to it

Whereupon his weapon itself went sideways.  The Extended Slide lock I put in for him kept locking every. single. shot.  I felt for the guy... it boned.

The Smith and Wesson 669 ran like a dream
Everyone who tried it started to fall in love with it.  Man, that kooky mid-size not-full-size not-compact is fucking awesome.  Literally my new E.D.C.

Ratus was there, as well as a bunch of Mikes.  Various Mikes showed who're regular readers and man, a good time was had by all.  This time we had overhead cover, so's I didn't get burned to death in the sun, but 'range walking' the 150 out and back a couple dozen times in jeans in Flo-reeee-duh! heat was a motherfucker.

So again my thanks to Borepatch and evvabody.  It was a literal and figurative blast.  I slept til noon today after crashing out at 21:00.  

Oh!  Another thing... part of the kip-in was no sleep because -someone- again probed the perimeter.  Around 12:30 pm I hear the slider door on the lania being fucked with... wasn't sure and asked Wifey who said "yeah, I heard that too."  I got up and grabbed the Black Aces semi-12 and went to lock and load, whereupon it fucking fouled the load dammit!

As I was fucking with it the bolt slammed home 2x times as I cycled it tryna get a round in the chamber at which point mister sneaker-and-peeker took to his heels as I heard the screen door slam on his exit.  He hadda have heard the shotty getting futzed with and bolted.  I managed to figure out where I had fucked up the load (MOR training needed while impaired with being asleep) and everything was cool, but HIGHLY irritating.  Fucking slider had a big assed palm print on it this A.M... and that -wasn't- there before as the Wifey had -just- wiped the glass down from GranBebe leaving paw-prints all over the glass, and add on the print was at head-height.  I'm gonna catch this brazen motherfucker... and nope, if'n I do, I ain't calling no one. 

Boobytraps and whatnot getting reset AGAIN... dammit.
Wish I could do something lethal... alas.. not yet.

Legal Injustice

Greetings Me Droogs n Droogettes!
Good training stuff upcoming.  I'm listening to y'all on 'stuff' thats going to be needed in the future, with some info that'll be covered this weekend.  This A.M. I'm gonna go into the upcoming problems (as I sees 'em) that're starting and are flat-out what's going to be the "Line" that everyone always talks about.
So sayeth The Queen
Personally, we're heading in to a "Royalty/Serf" environment, except it's the self-designated "Elites" who are going to run the show, by dint of cash and power/influence.  I mean good God, when -I- personally look at some of these folks, I can't for the life of me figure out just how/where/why they got to where they are.   Case in point, Jack Dorsey... fucker on a good day looks like a drowned rat... he's that foul smelling bum who tries to ask you for a smoke, and then some spare change.
Thing is...
Those self designated "Betters" are ramping up the rhetoric
To the point I'm genuinely concerned.
Like man, they no not what they do....
Or maybe they do, and don't give a fuck.
Thing is, we ain't the cowering, simpering fuckers that they assume we are.
We ain't like them.  THEY per usual project without critical analysis nor thought.  
They react, badly as it's now seen in D.C.  
Fuckin' Green Zone in Baghdad didn't have half as many troops guarding it, and that was with daily rocket and mortar attacks on the daily-daily.  That was full on assaults and attacks... half of them fags in the Capitol wouldn't last through a week of Balad's incoming.  In 04 we called Balad Airbase "Mortaritaville" because it got the ever living shit kicked out of it daily.

After living through that shit, do you think I'm worried if it 'kicks off' and the people on the right start rampaging?  Me and mine?  Not so much, but I think Pelosi and Occasional Cortex might fully die of fright if the real shit kicks.  Can you imagine the reaction if someone dropped a mortar round on the House?  I mean it'd be a fucking absolute crime, as that building is absolutely gorgeous, but these are the collaterals that'll come about IF these people don't back the fuck off.
Things like this survey that came out yesterday
Showing the "Extremely Concerned" about Trump Supporters?

Why????

I mean really?

Look at that list.  It's a laundry list of the Propaganda State's Enemy-Media Industrial Anti-Trump (and therefore anti-American/white) industry.  The only legit concern on that list is "Americans lacking health coverage" and all the rest is a bunch of horseshit.  Like HUUUUGE heaping steaming piles of doggie donuts levels man.

"Donald Trump Supporters?"  I can't get over that.  That thing reads like a guidebook on the "How to Start a Genocide" on average, white, proud-to-be Americans who are anti-abortion, pr-family, and love this country.

Fuckin' Clown World indeed.
And it's in an accelerationist mode right now.
And it isn't about righting past wrongs... well in their minds it is, but it's bullshit perceived notions of past injustices.  The Obamamessiah spoke again the other day saying that this country was built on the backs of slaves... which ones you stupid ig'nint African halfbreed?  The white Irish slaves?  The white English slaves?  Ohhhhh he's talking about the black African slaves... even though numerically, the white slaves outnumbered the fuckin' Africans buy 500 to 1... howsabout some reparations for the white slaves you fucking asshole?  They were called 'indentured' instead of 'slaves' to church it up a bit, but a fucking slave is a fucking slave, no matter what the color of the skin yer wearing.  And int he case of this shytteshow?

It's about revenge
Revenge for doing well
For being smarter, better and wiser
For having a civilization and a functional one at that
For conquering the world and going to the moon, and no, don't tell me wouldn't have made it there without three fucking black females... a fucking myth spun up to give the-something- to cling to, because everyone gets a consolation prize because no one is allowed to be a fucking loser, even though historically, blacks are and will continue to be just that
Fucking losers.

Fuck them.  Oprah was a one-off, and not because of rayyyyyycism.  It's because as a whole, they are demonstratively lower in the IQ scale, and the very fact that at one point theyselves call out that hard work, dedication to a job well done, and perseverance is a "white trait of supremacy"

So, does that mean that laziness, shiftlessness and sloth is a black trait?

It goes both ways you stupid fuckers

So now they're essentially starting to look at passing laws.  What these laws are ain't been stated per se... they can't scare the sheep yet.  It's incremental.  It's been so far going that direction...the 'proposed upcoming gun ban(s)' are going to be the first step.  And when they fail, it'll ramp up from there. 

Leastways that's what they think.

How they think a 'war on whiteness' is actually going to play out?  I mean really?
This ain't 1940, and we're not going to be 'led gently to slaughter'
Go time is coming, and they don't know just how bad it'll get
Srebrenica Levels of Cleansing.  
As in 30 years from now, GranBebe is gonna ask "Papi, What's a 'liberal?" and hopefully I'll be there to tell her "Well, that's the folks I helped get rid of who wanted to enslave and kill us because of the color of our skin baby."
I really hope that's how it plays out
Truly.

All Done

Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
99.99% Completed work on the new AR-10.  The only thing missing still is the crush washer, but thats a teeny piece.  An awesome Droog has throw a few in the mail and should be here before Blogshoot.  Borepatch is hosting another shewt'em up down at the Manatee Gun club here in Floreee-duh! and Sapper n'Me are making the effort.  It's $20 a head to shoot from 11am til 16:00.  And to Droog 'X,' me huuuugest thanks for the washer(s)!  Friggin' Palmetto State was the only place with them in stock at non-extortionist rates, but their shipping department for non-ffl stuff blows goat chunks.

And for the Droog who suggested re-using the old crush washer, it might have worked, but when I crushed this particular one, I had to cut it off to avoid fucking up the threads on the crown... it didn't want to 'play nice' coming off, and rather than thread it off, I hadda snip it.

So:
Came out nice I think...
Dude who started me on this project, if'n yer reading this call me
Or mebbe not LOL.



Fookin' Pretty there Aye?
Hopefully it shoots as nice as it looks
Tis a heavy motherfooker tho...
Like OMFG Heavy.  Between just the fact that a 10 is a much more burly rifle due to the inherent nature of the 7.62 versus the 5.56... this thing is a beast.
The scope added almost 4 pounds to it and a battle-royale with Wifey, as it was around 3 bills over the authorized budget.
So, I get to eat beans n rice for a few weeks.
Meh.
It's worth it if it shoots nice.
What's funny is she'd positively shit if I bought a really good optic like a Leupold.... them suckers run a couple o'grand there.  This 'un here was pretty highly rated as far as good, inexpensive chineseium goes.  We'll see on Saturday.

Liberal Cowardice

Greetings Me Droogs n Droogettes!
So, my fellow blogger Arthur Sido over at "Dissident Thoughts" has a pretty damned good writeup on "Illiberal Liberals" Link HERE (if the bloody thing works).  The TL;DR take is his perspective (correct IMO) of the liberals of the world have come full circle...
Becoming that which they rail against the most
A stultifying bunch of pseudo intellectual assholes, high on their sense of entitlement and smugness.

In pure redneck-ese: "A bunch'a goddamn worthless pantywaist motherfuckers who need a mudhole stomped in their asses, and roadmarched dry." 
Now, I agree with Arthur.  He makes a lot of good points...

And I think I have a new idea of what's got a lot of these newer, more hateful, younger 'liberals' allll bent out of shape.
Now, per Arthur, the liberals of yesteryear came about in the 60's: 

"Being a liberal used to mean things like concern for workers being exploited by big business, staying out of wars, free speech and expression and of course loosened sexual morals. They were always yammering on and on about stuff, arguing with conservatives and each other. They believed in what they were saying and they wanted to tell you why you were wrong if you didn't believe the same thing. The hippies and the music counterculture of the 60s and 70s was all about "fighting the man" and struggling against the prevailing culture. Even as recently as the early 90s when I was in college, liberals were still game for an argument."

Now, what he -doesn't- mention was a lot of the reason for "fighting the man" was purely motivated by self-preservation.  I'd say 90-95% of the assholes "fighting the man" were the anti-war "I don't want to get killed because I'm special" highly educated, overblown sense of self worth elitists.  I mean look at all the draft dodgers out there...Trump hid out due to 'bone purs' and the current resident used asthma as his excuse.  This despite both assholes being athletic as fuck. Biden being a lifeguard and football player, and Trump doing baseball... out of the two, I'd tend to believe Trump over Biden as bone spurs do happen, especially in that sort of sport, whereas being a lifeguard with asthma?

C'mon man!

Besides, war was for the poor, stupid hicks in flyover country.
Not that I blame them, Nam was a shit show that should have never happened.  Part and parcel of another reason they whacked JFK was he was going to shut down Nam and bring the troops home, thereby shutting down all that filthy defense lucre that Johnson and MacNamara's contracting buddies wanted...

Anywhoo... Anyone with the ability, money or stones out-and-out dodged the draft.  One way to do it was stay in school.  Which a HUGE number of motherfuckers did.  Stay in school for multiple degrees, and in the end, depending on what you got schooled in, begin to teach, when you weren't protesting to keep the fa├žade up that you were "fighting the man" when in reality, they were hiding and trying to keep their asses alive behind dubious claims that, over time, they began to really believe their own bullshit.  And worse?

They began to teach it.
Indoctrinate.  Infiltrate.  Subvert.
Hell, the fucking Russians openly admit they were behind 80% of the hippy movement.
So, they ended up running the show, and were, and still are, communist back fucking cowards who believe their own cognitive dissonance bullshit, and can't acknowledge nor admit to their own culpability, as it's built on a foundation of lies and bullshit.

Fast forward to Generation Z and the tail End of Generation X.
X had, for the most part, joined the DotMil out of the need for college cash, the want of adventure and or pride in being in uniform or pride of serving.  Getting rid of conscription left a volunteer force proud of what they did for a living.  And, if like me, the pure enjoyment of getting to blow shit up occasionally, go to strange countries, bang the hot local broads and get shitfaced 24-7.  Even got to kill some motherfuckers too as a bonus.

And got paid to do it!
Now, same goes for Generation Z.  However, unlike other wars, The troops this time?  
Fuckin' ROCK STARS in the eyes of the public.
They were pure Alpha Males and Females
They had all the kudos, and got laid and free booze wherever they went.
Cut to Emo Joe at the corner bar, majoring in Advanced African Basketweaving, who IF he's lucky -might- score with that HUUUUGE fat tatted up chick in the dorm if her L.U.G. roommate isn't home that night.... 

L.U.G. means Lesbian Until Graduation... started in the late nineties.  Chick'd claim to be dykes for the social-cool points, and grades, and the day they leave campus?  BOOM!  Dickstacking by- the-foot on the Cock-Carousel anyone?  

And IF he manages to graduate in 5 years (if he can manage another $20K in student loan debt) he might be able to score a entry-level teachers assistant gig at the University, but he might have to suck off his male PolySci professor to get the recommendation.

He's a former Airborne Ranger with more pussy than he knows what to do with, a full New G.I. Bill ride so he's got cash to spend on, and is driving a paid-off Pimped out giant ass Ford F250 with a lift kit and kicking sound system.
ALL the guys want to be Chad
ALL the girls want to fuck Chad
Hell, even some of the guys want to fuck Chad too.
Emo Joe purely hates Chad and his ilk.
And there's a lot more of the Emo Joes than Chad out there.
So, because they can't go toe-to-toe with Chad in any meaningful way, Emo and his kind go the "SJW Swarm Attacks" and try to use their intellect and subversive means to attack Chad obliquely.  However, they can't do it where they can be identified.  Nonono... Chad has zero fucks to give and if he's openly mocked or fucked with in the classroom, he'll bide his time and beat the ever living fuck out of Emo on the downlow later...

Hence the rage and hatred towards 'Normie Americans' and their beliefs.  
They are the ones who put Chad up on a pedestal.  
They're the ones who applaud and stand for the National Anthem.
They are the ones who thank Chad and Becky for their service and honor them

Not Emo or any of they/them.  Or whatever the fuck they call theyselves Aye?

They hate us, 'cos they ain't us
And never will be.
Hence the near nonstop attempts to tear down anything and everything that is adored from a Traditional American POV.  The flag?  Burn it.  The anthem? Kneel for it.  The Country?  Shit on it.  The Military?  Marginalize and subvert it.  The traditional Family? Dissolve it and pervert it.  Normal sexuality?  Pervert it completely.

THAT IMO is why they're doing it... it's a bit simplistic
BUT
Sometimes the easiest definitions are a short, straight line
So, tell me whatcha think.

$15 Per Hour

Greetings Me Droogs n Droogettes!
Hope y'all are still kicking.  I'ma waiting for the cawfee to kick in meselves.  Good news from yesterday was the V.A. finally re-upped me meds.  A newer better monkey, but now I can actually bend over and tie my shoes without me spine exploding.

Now to biddness of ye topic of ye daye...
$15 an hour:
Now, anyone with two brain cells to rub together knows the whole nevitable blowback that's gonna happen with the whole Federally mandated $15 an hour... Small businesses are gonna take it in the Kiester by Easter if it gets pushed through.  It looks like it is, and man, that'll be the end of Mom n Pop stores, and I even think that a lot of fast-food locations are gonna shit the bed, if not automate and get rid of all them now expensive Happy McBurgerflippers.  

My concern that's been percolating in ye olde thinkin meat isn't just the small business, nor the 'downriver' (it sure as hell ain't gonna be a stream, thats fer sure) effects, nor even the personal impacts.  Nope... it's how that shit is gonna affect ME

Me as in "I've spent 30 years learning and getting to the point where I can earn my living"  I.E. a professional, who's making $19.81 an hour when broken down.  Now, mind you that's with what I call the 'healthcare kicker'.  Lots of companies, rather than pay out the Obominable Healthcare Extortionist rates, pay an hourly employee 'bump' so's we can get our own insurance (hopefully at a severely reduced rate).  Now, since it's aboot $4.20, that means realistically I'm getting aboot $15 an hour.  I'm lucky.  Full VA Bennies... I get to keep the 'bump'

After working 30 plus years.

So... where does that leave me?  I'll tell ya... Ima gonna be hitting the bosses up for a bump or they can -hopefully- find a competent person to replace me.  And considering that yeah, this's for the most part a phone-monkey job, yeah, they can probably find someone.  BUT long term I'm just one fuckin' guy.  Just wait til the rest of the workforce decides to do the same exact thing that I'm going to do.

Fuckin' Chaos Aye?
'Cos dunno 'bout you, the inflation that will happen after all the Happy McBurgerflippers start earning what they think is going to be a "living wage" shit's gonna go off the charts in cost increases.  We're already seeing it in car prices.  New cars are retardedly expensive, and JugEars Obamamessiah the Assfucker (piss be upon him) with his "cash for Clunkers" shit-program positively destroyed the used car market...  Along with the retarded 'Green New Assfucking" that they're instituting to outlaw Internal Combustion Engines (ICEs), it means that it's a progressive plan to enslave us.

"Keep us on the Plantation" by eliminating cheap, easy transportation
Cut the wages to "Equitable Level" i.e. just enough to barely make a living
Keep real food at a premium, and start forcing artificial shortages and make the 'alternative' food available to the masses
Possibly eliminate the vast majority of "Useless Eaters" to keep things 'sustainable'

What I'v always wondered is just who do they think is going to do the gruntwork in their new overlord positions?  I mean guttin' a pig to make chops is an ugly nasty job, and there ain't no full automation -yet- that can handle the whole shebang.  Which means slaves, and guards for the slaves...  which, to quote Heinlein from "Space Patrol" 

"Who Watches the Watchers?"  

'Cos I know if I managed to finagle a position of being "The Guy with the Gun?"
Welcome to Thunderdome Bitches!

Yeah...again, yeah they're going all 'accelerationist' in their plan, but they lack the ability that they need to actually pull it off properly.  It's called 
Critical Thinking
Ain't taught no more in the skoolz... not even in the Poison-Ivy Leagues
So, long term, stay inside the OODA loop, keep your friends close, yer enemies closer...
Preferably as close as your side yard
4 foot and a layer of crystal drano does wonders
Ask me NOT of how I know this

No One Can Take a Joke

Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
Yah.. No one has a sense of humor anymore, leastways not in public...
The miserable Twitter Bastards have now set their sights on Pat fuckin' Sajak of all people.  Not going to link the story, as links have been funky as fuck lately, but apparently, Wheel O Whatever dude is in deep shit after last nights broadcast.
Seems a contestant had a slight lisp... people are going the fuck off in outrage over the following:

"The longtime game show host was trying to keep things light during Monday’s show as he was introducing contestants. While doing so, Sajak spoke with contestant Chris Brimble. After explaining to the host what he does for a living, it became clear to viewers and the host that Brimble speaks with a slight lisp.

Sajak heard him out and even commented on the importance of his job, bringing technology to older adults. However, the host concluded the brief interview by saying "I thee" instead of "I see."

While Brimble simply laughed the moment off, viewers who were upset about the Sajak's apparent mockery of the contestant’s speech impediment took to Twitter to voice their outrage."

Now, I'ma getting really tired of the faux outrage.
I know y'all are too.
When I was growing up, depending on how the dude who had the lisp looked like, we'd call him out as a lisping fag.  Now if the dude in question didn't have a problem with the tease, then what the fuck is the issue.

Too many folks have forgotten
Ain't yer circus, ain't yer monkeys
Stay in yer lane
Ain't nunya.   Ain't none yo fuckin' biddness there Combat!

Motherfuckers then wonder why mad violence is on the rise, nationally?  Lots of folks are blaming the 'no cops' issue which is part of the larger issue, especially in the inner city where Da Yoots run free and easy with their gansta bullshit.  Nope, I got a bit of my own theory here, and that is the new normal of people getting into everyone elses biddness.

Americans by and large are normally socially distant.  We tend to be really distanced compared to the Eurotrash and Ayrabs.  We -also- nominally really like our privacy.  We don't tolerate motherfuckers getting into our shit.  We even wrote it into the constitution, (not that that matters anymore apparently).  
Stay the hell out of our hair Aye?
Good fence make Good neighbors.  
But now?
Snitch Culture
"See something, say something" and the power of the Twittertards.
Everyone, no matter how low on the social foodchain, now feels empowered to get in other people's faces without repercussion...  I had it happen the other day... again.  I seem to attract the fucktards I swear...  I was, albeit illegally, utilizing a dumpster at the end of the street to throw a particularly noxious bag o'trash out... (a flat of eggs went bad)  Couldn't wait til trash day, and what the hell... giant ass dumpster, small bag o'kitchen trash, and sure as shit, some fucking busybody comes over, takes out his phone, starts recording and comes up giving me flak about it!?!  

Guess he wanted his 2 minutes of fame...
Told him as much... he proceeded to lecture me about how much it costs to empty a dumpster like that yaddayadda...  I was all like "Is it yours?"  
Him: "No but..."
Me: "Do I know you?  Do you know me?"
Him: "No"
Me: "Then what makes you the dumpster cop?  What do you care?"
Him: <puzzled clueless look>
Me: <righteous fury mode> "Seein's you don't know me, I could be a crazy, mentally unbalanced motherfucker with a handgun under my shirt, who particularly doesn't like nosy, stupid pig-i'gnint motherfuckers getting into my fuckin' business, and I then decide you need to be killed because you just filmed me disposing of my latest dismembered corpse, because I'm a serial killer, and you just pissed me off...   hows that make you feel now you dumb motherfucker?"
Him: <backing away while now sweating> "A...a..are you threatening me?"
Me: "Nope... purely hypothetical.  BUT I'm asking you, why the fuck would you bother someone you don't know and piss them off?"
Him: <clueless, stupid sheeplike look>
Me: <walking away muttering>  "That's one way of earning a Darwin Award right there..."

Duelling... I'ma tellin' ya, duelling needs to make a comeback...
Start Culling the Worthless Eaters and let us Predatory Motherfuckers make a comeback.
UGH
So yeah, people getting into other peoples shit?
In some circles, that's a killin'.
So, shit to think on... Mind your own damned biddness and things'll work out jes' fine

Fuck Around and Find Out

Greetings Me Droogs n Droogettes!
Seems that the "Cloud People" are going to make it MOAR illegal to go after judicial miscreants.  
Link HERE
Seems some lawyer got fed up and pissed off at a Judge names Salas and planned on offing her.  He planned it out pretty meticulously, in the he went as far as getting a FedEx uniform and stuff to appear as a delivery man.  When he got to the house though, things went sideways, and her kid bought it and her hubby wounded.

Now, I do feel for the woman.  However, considering just how corrupt our system has become?  How untrustworthy our supposed self-proclaimed betters are?  How the justice system, systemically and overall is a two-tier system, designed to keep the peasants scared and in-line as tax bearing beast of burden?  I mean is it any wonder someone finally lost their collective shit and deigned it time to take some and git some back?  I'll be honest, the numbers thrown around as to the numbers of threats yearly is faaar lower than I'd expect...

"The U.S. Marshals Service, which protects about 2,700 federal judges, said there were 4,449 threats and inappropriate communications in 2019, up from 926 such incidents in 2015."

Considering just how evil the system is, I'd expect a couple of 'zeros' on them numbers.  NOT that I agree that that's the way things should go... there are legal recourses out there, but not everyone is wrapped too tight in the thinking meat.  Apparently that guy decided to go for broke, and man, now?

They're introducing MOAR protective acts to hire a fuckton of MOAR FedFuzz to guard their precious hides from the great unwashed masses.  
Funny that, I thought murder was already illegal?

This's a pattern.  This's going to be used as a harder, deeper protective act.  "The Judicial and Politician Protection Act(s) of 2021" or some such bullshit.  Make it that the full wrath of an already oppressive FedGov Leviathan comes down and crushes anyone who dares peek over the transom and call them out on their bullshit.  Nevermind actual murder, it'll be that if you dare question your "betters" that they'll crush you like a roach, and if you -try- to whack any of them, they'll more than likely add some North Korean level generational shytte onto the charge... make it like North Korea, where it's "Three Generations of Guilt" and one of the most oppressive Crime Families in history...the Kim Klan don't fuck around...
Used to be you could tar and feather a corruptocrat without issue... in fact, a lot of the time, their own would help out... depended on how badly you fucked around... if you were a minor irritant, the tar would be heated just enough to make you a real mess, and fuck you up... if you got them really pissed at you, the tar would be heated enough to cause third-degree burns, and that'll do pig... d-e-a-d as a you could get...

We need to bring back that, and duelling.
That'd settle a LOT of this keyboard warrior shit...
Pistols at 20 paces.  Shoot a motherfucker in the head and call it a day.
In fact, have 'em use a set just like the above... Purdey Classic Duelling pistols...
That's end a LOT of this bullshit going on IF we had the means to institute it
But somehow methinks the PTB ain't going go for it...
So, where does that leave us?
Ye Olde Rockage and a Harde Place...
Ain't gonna be fun...
Head on A Swivel
They ARE coming to get us
Be the Gray Man
