REAL Astronauts and Red Triangle

Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
My many thanks to all who reached out with an offer to buy the R-10.  Lots of interested parties apparently.  However, a wants-to-remain-anon-generous-benefactor hooked me up.  So I get to hold onto said shewtin' iron for the time being.  Again, if I have any other issues that crop up, I'll be the first one to yell here.  Now, with that out of the way, first thing to tackle is this: Vanderleun over at American Digest has "The Descent" of the Apollo 11 landing linked in it's entirety.  Link to him HERE  

Since it is on the YT, I'll poast it as well.  
I highly recommend watching it.  

Best to watch it on full screen
And if you don't have a sense of amazement at that, man, what the fuck is wrong with you?
We did that shit with fucking slide rules man
I mean yeah, the computers were around.  
But the 'brain' in those things?  I read somewhere that the building sized 'computer that NASA was running?  The calculator Timex from 1982 had waaaay more ability.

True Men
True Astronauts.

Not these fuckin' guys:
And yeah...
How far we've fallen.
STEM?  These days?  Don't make me laugh.
Long range forecast by the Magic 8-Ball states simply: "You be fucked"

So, besides the space-shenanigans, Matt Bracken poasted up on the gab a couple of things, which I'll throw up first, then give my rebuttal.

Now, from a purely propaganda perspective it's a great idea.
Most people these days?  There's a few problems.  One is that any asshole still wearing a mask is still going to wear the mask.  The Ministry of Propaganda's efforts to convert the morons and sub-70 IQ'd folks of Joe and Jill Sixpack to the 'Church of Branch Covidians' was an overwhelming success.  I still see fucktards driving while wearing the Holy Diaper.  It's now become a symbol of the faith, much like the Catholics who run around all day on Ash Wednesday with a smudge on their foreheads.

Two is that no matter -how well intentioned- your 'protest' is, the very fact that you're going to utilize something that was used in Concentration Camps?  A (((certain group of religionists))) are going to, no matter what you say, go completely batshit insane and go after you for minimalizing their supposed (((Near and Dear Shoah.)))  Only (((the chosen))) are allowed to make a grift of of the concentration camps.  Why do you think the fags and gypsies get short shrift on their own time in the camps?  No one muscles in on the (((tribe))) and their monies.  When was the last time you heard of the Pink Triangle or the Brown/Black Triangle?  Nevermind the Red Triangle that Cmdr Bracken is talking aboot.  Nope, the only symbol of the camps that matters is the Yellow Star.

Third, they eventually are gonna make the shot mandatory.  Don't care what anyone sez.  Why would you advertise?  It's like the Moron Militias who ran around in the 90's on the early intahrwhebz and made and then started FedPoasting before the term even offishully existed.  Assholes like that are why we can't have nice militias and can't realistically organize anything anymore.
No shytte there Aye?
Best to take a play out of their own book and Mao.
"The guerrilla must move amongst the people as a fish swims in the sea."
Be the Gray Man.
A Red Triangle is -not- being the Gray Man.
And unfortunately, there are NOT enough people who're going to do this to be effective
Not by a long shot.
Which is unfortunate, but realistic.
Because, even if Commander Bracken is doing it, kudos to him, but the rest of us aren't Commander Bracken.  And NOT that we don't have the guts/balls/ovaries... no... it's that we're not an Internationally known writer and prolific pain-in-the-ass to the Powers that Be former SEAL who, if they went after, could and would mount a vociferous defense.  I have -zero- idea what his resources are, but man... I sure as fuck ain't got ye olde pottage to piss in these days.  (Aside: Still waiting on word for the new gig... why the fuck should it take fucking a month to decide yea or nay?  Fuckers... and yeah I know... Human Resources job security... Jeebus...)  So yeah, everyone seems to forget that these lil factoids.  Most of us crypto-normies have to keep the 'normie-face' on in public, lest we risk the ire of the Wild Karens and the Church of the Branch Covidians.  

So, yepper
Head on a Swivel
I'm thinking it'll get sporty soon
Going to -try- and go to the range this weekend.  Another reader donated a pass to the range, so what the hell.  I need the trigger time.

  1. I remember going to a neighbor's house to watch Apollo 11's launch on their 'big screen' console TV.

    We watched the landing on our Black and White, because, well, any video would have been black and white.

    I also remember watching actual anti-ballistic missiles launch and intercept incoming dud warheads.

    All done with both slide rules and room-sized computers. And none of them looked like a flying dildo.

    I mean, for sheer damned sexiness in a weapon system, look up "Sprint Missile" or watch a video like this one (and I've been to that island where they launched the fuckers. pretty damned cool childhood I had.)

    1. (Don McCollor)...For sheer raw power, nothing beat the Saturn 5/Apollo. There is a video of a camera right at the base of the Apollo 11 Saturn (E8 I believe) showing the launch in slow motion. Beginning with the power of five F-15s in full afterburner. Those were just the fuel pumps starting. Then the main engines lit, the hold down arms released and it was like a vision of Hell with the exhaust sweeping over the pad...

  2. Great post, I almost choked laughing at the militia meme. I am year older than Phil and vividly remember Apollo 11. Probably no one else remembers this, but there were tips on how to film the landing being shown on your TV with "Super 8" movie camera, pre VHS era as it was.
    I asked my liberal Daughter (Did the best I could, but college got her anyway) why there are still people in masks, her answer was that it is virtue signaling, letting everyone know that they opposed Trump. All I can say, to quote the great Bugs Bunny is "What a Maroon"

  3. Your thoughts are kind of like mine when i read his comments.

    Aprotest is great in the early days but having worn the red triangle will signal your not one of the cult and increase the chances someone either snitches on you or worse.

    As forworse i'm seeing covidians calling for camps and rounding up of the unvacinated to 'save lives'. I've seen a store post a sign demanding unvacinated not enter. By year end we'll see houses of unvacinated getting torched by the usual suspects.




  5. The main thing is that the idea is useless in 2021. People either buy into the bullshit or they don't and there isn't much convincing people either way by now. I don't need to paint a bigger target on myself, using my real name online to post Hate Thoughts is bad enough.

    As impressive as the moon landing is, I still can't wrap my mind around the U.S. building our war forces in WW II all by hand. Rifles by the millions, ammo, artillery, tanks, aircrafts carriers and planes capable of taking off and landing on them at sea. All without CNC machines or computers. Unimaginable today.

    1. Impressive indeed. People back then were better-educated (even if they 'only' had a high school education), and generally more capable. In the course of my job, I've been to many elderly widows' houses, and many, if not most, basements have workshops still stocked with the husbands' tools. It was not uncommon in the 1930s and 1940s for men who were not professional contractors, to build their own houses.

    2. And the speed in which they did it. GVDL like you BCE is a treasure.

  6. Matt's deal? I stopped reading at "if enough people do it". This kind of shit is as lame as Michelle/Michael's #Bringbackourgirls bullshit.
    Plus any protest - collossal waste of time and like you say idiotic.

    Actually, the amazon logo looks like a dick (someone pointed it out)

  7. Hi Bubba!!,
    I had just gotten back from the "South Pacific" on the USS PRINCETON LPH-5 after we recovered the APOLLO X mission.. "STAFFORD, CERNAN and YOUNG!!" Was in Long Beach, CA. at my digs and watched the landing on TV!!! Had my TAPE RECORDER There and realized I needed to "RECORD THIS!!!" Still have the '7" Reel-to-Reel tape!!!!'
    PS On our way back from the South Pacific we Stopped in Hawaii for a few daze and just happened to catch "JIMMI HENDRIX!!!!" at the Wai-kiki Shell "LIVE!!!!!!" what a show!!!!!

  8. Just thought I'd point out that certain group of religionists that will go completely batshit insane ain't the religious ones, it's the liberal ones, who ain't especially religious. The religious ones are mostly like us, they just want to be left alone.
