Our newest featured blog,”Girl of 10,000 Lakes” put together a list of kid-friendly fishing organizations that parents can add to their kids’ tackle boxes.

Fishing gear on a dock

As I get our home ready for our first child, I can’t help but also think about how I want to equip his “tackle box.” I don’t mean just lures and kid-friendly fishing poles. I also want my son to have access to our lakes, natural resources, understand the value of fishing and how it relates to conservation — and have fun while doing it!

Minneapolis Burns

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 15:21, Thursday, 28 May

The death of George Floyd at the hands of the police is regrettable, lamentable. and probably prosecutable.  Everyone from the local police union to the US Dept of Justice is investigating it. Even the President of the United States has made the promise that justice will be served.

So, explain to me again why looting a Target store does anything to promote justice.  Explain to me again how burning buildings does anything to promote justice. 

Opportunistic looting is a crime.  Arson is a crime.  The people in the stores, the owners of the buildings, had nothing to do with the injustice that  two officers imposed on George Floyd.  Tell me again how mo violence does anything to promote justice.

I'll wait.


Quincy

by ASM826 in Borepatch at 18:10, Thursday, 28 May

The Fore Shipyard was an active shipyard on Quincy Point in 1901. They were bought by Bethlehem Steel in 1913 and later became known as the Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation. Sold in the 1960s to General Dynamics and finally closed in 1986. They made all sort of ships, cargo vessels, submarines, tankers, even some ships for foreign navies.

This is the Thomas Lawson, a seven masted schooner they built in 1902.


But it's the U.S. Navy ships I want to focus on.

They built the first USS Lexington (CV2) in 1927 and when she was sunk at the Battle of the Coral Sea and they built the sec...

TFB Review: Leupold D-EVO Offset Optic

Babylon Bee: Shooter Released After Authorities Determine All Victims Died Of COVID

KENTON, WA—A gunman was released from police custody on Thursday after it was determined by experts that the people he had shot were victims of COVID-19 and not his psychotic bloodlust-induced blind-firing rage-spree death-binge through downtown Kenton last week with three AR-15’s, seventeen uzis, and one bazooka and zero clothes on. “Our apologies,” said officers as they unlocked the man’s cuffs and let him walk free, snickering and shaking like a lunatic with drool hanging from his chin.

Repair for me, therapy for thee?

by Joel in The Ultimate Answer to Kings at 11:49, Thursday, 28 May

I got the funniest damn text this morning. Out of the blue, Neighbor L wanted to know if I needed Neighbor D to drive me to town to get more lug nuts for the Jeep. I replied no, I filled my immediate needs yesterday when I biked to town and no special trip is needed.

She came back with (paraphrased) “Are you sure? [D] is going stir crazy.”

Regular readers know that Neighbor D had two minor strokes last year and is finding the recovery slow and frustrating. A very capable man, he’s suddenly clumsy, sometimes fumbles his speech and is occasionally a little slow to figure out things he used to be able to do without breaking stride. He’s used to feeling useful, and lately he doesn’t. He’s really not even supposed to drive, though I’ve never seen a problem when he does. A sudden emergency might be a problem.

I thought about it for a minute: That nail-punched tire needs to go to the shop in town. It really wasn’t worth a special trip, but on the other hand dealing with a heavy tire and wheel in the back of the truck is a lot easier if seven or eight 3-gallon water bottles aren’t in the way. No...

Louisiana Covid Update - Day 73

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 12:41, Thursday, 28 May

The numbers are up, so let's take a look.

The total covid count today is 38,802, or 305 more than reported yesterday.
Our deaths are up to 2635, an increase of 18 across the state.
Hospitalizations are down to 761, but the vent counts stand at 100.
My home parish of Rapides is showing 703 positive.  No word on local deaths or hospitalizations.

Our governor, the petty tyrant is supposed to make an announcement o Monday, June 1 relative to the state of Louisiana moving into Phase 2.  It's a no-brainer, so he has to make a big deal out of it.  We could actually skip Phase 2 and move to wide-open, but that would end the emergency and he wouldn't be able to soak the feds for covid-bucks.

Our governor is a scoundrel, and a West Point grad, but I repeat myself.  He claims to have been the chairman of the Honor Code committee, but evidently he's forgotten a lot about honor.  He's also a trial lawyer, if that tells you anything.

…but what the hell. Time, I’ve got.

The Leghorns have always had the very annoying habit of all laying their eggs in one spot as a flock. This causes breakage and hassles like trying to steal a dozen eggs from under a laying hen who’s emitting ear-splitting screeches and stabbing your hand with her beak the whole time. It’s also comical as hell to watch 3 hens literally sitting on one another, with sometimes a line of others waiting their turn. I’ll give them credit for queuing very politely but it makes no sense when there are five other nesting boxes in the chicken house.

Right now their favorite nesting spot is a commercial plastic box Landlady got from somewhere. It’s right next to 3 wooden boxes I made for the Rhode Island Reds, which the Leghorns will sometimes sit in but almost never lay eggs in.

It has been suggested – on what evidence I don’t know, I just heard it somewhere – that maybe the Leghorns don’t like those boxes because they’re too open; maybe they just like smaller spaces. So this morning I woke up with the bright idea of building dividers to make those sp...

THE BEGINNINGS

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late
With long arrears to make good,
When the English began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the English began to hate.

Their voices were even and low,
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show,
When the English began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd,
It was not taught by the State.
No man spoke it aloud,
When the English began to hate.

It was not suddenly bred,
It will not swiftly abate,
Through the chill years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the English began to hate.

“Watching a Murder”

by Greg Ellifritz in Active Response Training at 04:19, Thursday, 28 May

Written by: Greg Ellifritz

 

I had a friend send me a message yesterday. He wanted to know how a bystander might intervene in a situation like what happened in Minneapolis.   My friend told me he didn’t want to stand around “watching a murder.” How does one safely intervene when cops are mistreating a prisoner?


Violent action won’t help. You will be arrested and likely beaten or killed as well. If you physically attack the cop, it might actually make it worse for the guy you are trying to protect.

 

I’m going to give you some suggestions.  Some of you will think this advice is “soft.”  It is.  The best way to win a battle against a more powerful force is to engage in some trickery.  It’s best to come at that force from an angle they aren’t expecting.  If you charge head on into a mob of cops, you simply aren’t going to win that battle.  You need some dece...

Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics

Insty talks about a graph that someone put up, saying that since mid-April, Covid deaths have declined in Democrat congressional districts, but have remained relatively stable in Republican congressional districts.

That's true, until we actually look at the graph.


Yep, Covid deaths in Dem districts are declining.  Hopefully soon, they will get down to the relatively stable rate in Republican districts.



At least in the United States. Amazing how that tiny area in red has caused all that green so much pain. They are followed closely by the yellow area, which is at least physically larger. Put the two together and they're the size of what? South Carolina, maybe?

Yet we're all getting treated as if we all lived in NYFC.

Reading the beer's description, it immediately struck me that a Micallef Grand Bold Maduro would make a fine accompaniment to the ale. 


The stout poured a rich dark brown, with a short beige head. The aroma was a pleasant sweet malt with a hint of chocolate. The flavor profile followed with semisweet cocoa and toffee notes. Mouthfeel was creamy with a short sweet, but not cloying, finish.

USS Nevada

by ASM826 in Borepatch at 13:22, Wednesday, 27 May

I saw a news article today that the USS Nevada had been located. She's upside down on the sea floor 65 nautical miles southwest of Pearl Harbor. The story of how she got there is part of today's post.

First, we have to go back to Old America. The USS Nevada was the first of her class. The first U.S. battleship to have oil fired boilers instead of coal. The first to have triple gun turrets. The first to have geared turbine drives. She was twice the displacement of the previous generation of battleships.

She was built in Quincy, Massachusetts at the Fore River Shipyard. You can remember that name because that will be subject of my next post. There was time when saying "it was Quincy built" meant something to sailors. And The USS Nevada was laid down near the beginning of that time. They laid her keel in November 1912 and launched her in July of 1914. The Navy took her into active service in May of 1916.

She did not see battle in WWI and spent the years between the wars showing the flag in various places around the world. She was modernized ...

Okay, the Jeep’s right front tire picked up a nail. Jacked up that corner and found the nail easily enough and decided to leave it there till I can take the wheel to town for a proper repair next Monday. I could probably repair it in a pinch – I have a tire plug kit but it really only works well on tires worn much thinner than these are – the smart money would bet on me making the problem much worse. A nail hole is too small for the tools to penetrate, I’d basically have to drill it out bigger before I could plug it.

But that’s not the problem I was dreading…

Louisiana Covid Update - Day 72

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 10:58, Wednesday, 27 May

On this muggy Wednesday, the 72nd of the covid over-reaction, Belle went back to work today.  The office called her yesterday and asked if she would give a medication-administration class to new employees.  She said that she would be happy to, and tap-danced out of the house this morning to go to the office.

By all rights, this covid unpleasantness should be over.  Yet, Louisiana has a Democrat governor who thinks that as long as he can keep us caged, he can soak more money out of the federal government.  So, let's look at today's numbers.

Cumulative covid-load is at 38,497.  That is 443 more than reported yesterday.
2617 deaths reported today. 21 more than yesterday.
The hospital census stands at 798 with 100 on ventilators.  If what I've heard about ventilators is correct, about 80 of those souls will be added to the death toll.

Louisiana is still in phase 1, and are scheduled to be until June 5th. Our petty tyrant governor decided that 14 fays wan't long enough, and opted for 21 days.  Our church opened up this weekend, and I saw one congregant wearing a mas...

Decline and fall of the great urban areas?

by TPOL Nathan in The Price of Liberty at 11:01, Wednesday, 27 May

I admit it has been predicted more than once, that the “great urban areas” (whether they had a “mere” 50,000 people in the Middle Ages or the 5-20 million of the huge urban complexes of the 21st Century) are going to collapse and die. But maybe, just maybe, this time – with the Pandemic Panic and the accelerating withdrawal of the Fifty States from the world order of the last 75 years – it is going to happen?

It is a week of surprises. For just a few reasons.

Kristin Tate, described as a libertarian writer, has an Op-Ed piece on The Hill, that political rag that is about as pro-establishment and pro-powers-that-be as they come. In her article, she points out that New York City’s decline has accelerated during the Pandemic Panic and will continue to do so after the official end of that (whenever it will be) as people see no advantage to having to live in a stinking, polluted, overpriced, overhyped, and over-governed city.

Culpable, Accountable

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 05:21, Wednesday, 27 May

It seems that the Obama team may finally be coming to that time where their culpability will finally be exposed for all to see, and be forced to account for their malfeasance.  The idea that Obama had a scandal-free administration is both laughable and myopic.  Those of us who railed against government excess can remember the way that Obama and his minions played fast-and-loose with both the law, and the ethics of governing.

The complicit media was no help.  By fawning over the first black president and failing to hold him accountable, they did themselves no favors.  The lack of scrutiny and journalistic curiosity about anything that the administration didn't want covered  is a huge stain on the journalist class. 

Victor Davis Hanson writes about all this in the National Review.

FAMAS G2: The French Navy Updates its Bullpup

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 06:27, Wednesday, 27 May

The FAMAS rifle was originally adopted for use with 55 grain ammunition, with a 1:12 inch rifling twist rate and, of course, a proprietary 25-round magazine. This was the F1 pattern. Further development of the rifle with an eye toward international sale led to the G1 pattern, with a 1:9 inch twist suited to the Belgian SS109 62 grain projectile adopted by NATO, as well as the use of NATO-standard magazines (specifically FNC magazines). While the French Army was quite satisfied with its F1 rifles, the French Navy decided to modernize in the early 1990s.

The commercial G1 rifle had been economized by removing many of the extra features like bipod legs and grenade launching hardware, and the Navy wanted those elements reinstated. GIAt did that, and the result was the FAMAS G2. A total of 10,000 were manufactured for the French Navy, and they are the last FAMAS rifles to be produced before the St Etien...

Unique Perspectives on COVID-19-Part 12

by Greg Ellifritz in Active Response Training at 03:42, Wednesday, 27 May

Written by: Greg Ellifritz

I’ve been posting Covid-19 weekly updates for the past three months.  The very first update had 7,304 page views.  Last week’s update had 2, 217 pageviews.  People are getting sick of reading about the pandemic.  This will be my last weekly coronavirus update.

 

Since I don’t have TV in my house, I spend a lot more time reading than the average American.  I have more than 400 websites programmed into my RSS reader. On the average day I scan about 1200 articles in my feed.  I deeply read more than 100. You can guess that my feed in recent weeks has been almost completely full of Covid-19 articles.  I’ve been reading an insane quantity of material with regards to the virus and its likely future consequences.

Every spring, while readying the gardens for planting, I find little plants growing in my compost pile. In the realm of botany, these plants are classified as “volunteers” as they grow on their own, rather than being planted. Normally these plants get turned under and chopped up while the compost soil is prepared. This year, however, I decided to create a garden strictly from these “volunteer” plants. I further challenged myself to complete this task using solely the items already in my potting shed. What unfolded was an enjoyable exercise of incorporating, and finally using, found items (such as seashells from many summers ago). I feel this creates an additional layer of “volunteer” to my garden. Follow along for my step-by-step compost volunteer garden instructions.

Regular readers will recall me spending much of the late wet winter bitching about the mud on Laddie’s path, in the ashfield at the foot of the ridge. I thought caliche clay made the worst mud, but that was before I moved here and met volcanic ash.

I didn't look at the numbers yesterday, but it seems that the LDH has put them up today, so let's look

Total Covid load is at 38,054.  With over 341,000 tested, that's just a bit over 11%.
Fatalities are at 2596.  That's 36 more than the last time we looked.  Sad, but not a huge number.
The hospital census is down again, to 831, with 103 of those o ventilators.

Here in Rapides Parish, the case count stands at 663.  I heard a church last night that the vast majority of those are in nursing homes.  I cannot attest to the truth of that fact, but that is what a congregant reported.  I don't doubt it, and I"ll pray every day for those people.

If you want to have an economy it is because you want grandma to die, except when Cuomo signed off on an order that actually literally killed thousands of grandmas that is okay because they were going to die anyway, so nobody should be held accountable, and while we are at it should run Cuomo for president because he looks more presidential than Biden, who is senile, and quite possibly a rapist too, but the rapey bits don't count anymore because we only hash tag believe all women when they accuse republicans, because everything is okay when we do it and nothing is ever our fault, even when things directly under our watch spiral terribly out of control, but also how dare you politicize these tragic events, you cold hearted republican bastards who love money more than people, unless that money is being donated to democrat causes, because then it's good again. - sincerely the Party of Science, Morality, and Goodness.

A decade of Liberal failure

by Borepatch in Borepatch at 11:02, Tuesday, 26 May

Actually, it's more like two decades.  Maybe more.  I posted this ten years ago, and it has held up remarkably well over that time. 

The one thing I could add looking back from the present is that Donald Trump has figured out how to successfully exploit the weakened trust in our corrupted institutions, and that this is at the core of why so many people hate him with the fire of a thousand suns.  They were expecting to make further advances using the power of those institutions, but Trump shows them (again and again) that the institutions are now easily bypassed.

For example, who follows the Nightly News anymore?  Only Tools and Fools.  Everyone else has wised up - thus the inability of the News to get rid of Trump.

I also predict that governmental institutions like CDC will never recover their reputations once people realize just how badly CDC screwed up their virus projections and recommendations, and how much damage that did to the economy.  Not that this is a hard prediction to make ...

WordPress is about to force their “New and Improved” block editor on everyone. Whether we want it or not. Because blocks are better, if you are selling soap. I gave up on Blogger all those years ago, because Google is annoying. On so many levels. And at the time WordPress was much less annoying. But […]

Thousands of people defend their lives with firearms every year, but unfortunately, we don’t hear about it in the news. Potential legal liabilities and concerns for personal safety usually prevent people from telling their stories. Fortunately, there are exceptions, such as the story of Jack Wilson from Texas, who stopped an active shooter in the […]

10 Years Old, Tearful and Confused After a Sudden Deportation


Typical left sob story about a poor little Honduran kid who is supposedly sad and confused because he got deported. But if you read past the headline, you'll see that he was never really in our country to begin with. His mom wanted to get in here with him, but she apparently could not so she paid money to the smuggling cartels, put her precious child in a raft at night with a bunch of strangers, and blindly launched him across the Rio Grande at our country, expecting our Border Patrol to find him and obligingly turn him over to one of her relatives already here (likely illegally also). Then six days later, she found out that he was back in Honduras and she and her family are now upset that we Americans aren't letting them play us for suckers any more.

Even better, her brother, the boy's uncle, throws shade on America for sending the kid home:

Back in the late '80s, I was sent t a class put on by the Air Force, an Air Load Planning class.  They taught us how to balance loads in Air Force cargo aircraft.

If the aircraft is at rest and the front wheel comes off the ground, you're doing something wrong.

I live in Hudson, OH. You don't get much safer.

I'd be interested in knowing whether they're talking about the Acme or the Heinen's, both of which have relatively safe, well-lit, and traveled parking lots, and if they can cite any police report or link to any alerts. And why they know about it but the Hudson Hub Times does not.

Hell, I'd be less curious if they could just ID a "Ruth Miller" who is 63, as Zabasearch can't find one in Hudson and the only two on the Summit County voter roll were born in 1929 and 1932.

Two Steps Forward, One Step Back.

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 06:07, Tuesday, 26 May

It seems that the scientists at the National Lab have come up with a way to run a Tomahawk missile on corn.

Los Alamos National Labs has come up with a replacement fuel for JP-10 that uses corn bran and other feedstocks instead of petroleum products. The result is a fuel that can be sourced directly from America’s most plentiful crop, bypassing foreign sources.
That's interesting science, but recent events show us to be awash in petroleum, certainly not dependent of foreign sources of fuel.  At one time last month, crude oil sold for $-34/bbl.  They couldn't give it away without paying someone to haul it off.

If memory serves, the original diesel engine was designed to run on vegetable oil.  They got away from that when petroleum became more widely available.

It's interesting to know that we can make jet fuel from corn, but at this particular moment, I'm not convinced that it's particularly applicable to the markets, unless we're trying to subsidize corn production.

A Golden Oldie

by Kevin in The Smallest Minority at 07:17, Tuesday, 26 May

Back in April, 2006 I wrote a piece titled RCOB™.  It was a fisking of an op-ed by a writer named Nina Burleigh, who I later discovered was the bint who (in)famously said that she'd orally service Bill Clinton "just to thank him for keeping abortion legal."  Ms. Burleigh is an alumnus of the University of Chicago - aka "Mordor on the Lake," and is an adjunct professor of journalism at Columbia University, home of the Frankfurt School.  She is also National Politics Correspondent for Newsweek.  And, of course, she's not above making it up as she goes, since a 2019 piece she wrote for the Daily Mail had to be retracted and "substantial damages" paid to the person she slandered - Melania Trump.  That was her second retraction.  In 2018 a piece she wrote for Newsweek was retracted when the editors belatedly concluded they couldn't support her allegations that "Russian bots" were responsible for Sen. Al Franken's downfall.

So we have a woman, given her history, who is anti-theist, ultra-feminist, educated at one college with a reputation for neo-marxism, and teaching at another, yet lives in New York City with a second home i...

The latest issue of RECOIL: CONCEALMENT is on newsstands! I have a digital subscription on Kindle, but I snagged a dead tree copy from Walgreens yesterday because I have two pieces in this issue.

The first is the regular "Crap Shoot" column, which is a look at guns in the $200-or-less price bracket for personal defense. I think I picked a winner, but you may want to read for yourself...

...

Getting my nose out of social media so much by removing the Facebook app from my phone and iPad has definitely upped my reading. Sitting and reading fifty or a hundred pages at a stretch is a task that requires exactly the sort of extended focus that social media does not. (In fact, constant swimming in the fragmented world of social media, a world of short Tweets, Instagram photos with quickie captions, and two-minute YouTube videos may negatively affect the ability to concentrate like that.)

Anyway, I finished The Vampire Lestat on Friday and then plowed through Queen of the Damned over the weekend.

I'd forgotten what a good story the first three books of this series were. Cracking good stuff, back before Anne Rice fell down her own belly button with all the subsequent books. After these three it was just more and more words about less and less story, but I can't blame her for riding the cash cow until its legs give out.

Yesterday evening, I put down Queen of the Damned...

Tyranny and So-Called “Hate Speech”

by JDZ in Never Yet Melted at 07:16, Tuesday, 26 May

The Heritage Foundation recently published a must-read report on the Left’s widely successful effort to first stigmatize, and eventually to criminalize, speech and ideas it doesn’t like, thus shutting down all discussion and debate over very significant cultural and policy issues.

America is the only Western nation that does not criminalize “hate speech.” Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and most nations of Europe already do so. The United Nations relentlessly pressures the remaining holdouts to follow suit: “As a matter of principle,” says the U.N. Secretary-General, “...

A Cold War Hero’s Rolex Oyster

by JDZ in Never Yet Melted at 06:54, Tuesday, 26 May

Hodinkee unravels the tale of a rusted Rolex watch once worn by one of the brave men symbolized by a star on the CIA’s Memorial Wall.

It was barely recognizable as a watch when it first came to me. The case shape gave it away, but the dial and hands were hidden behind a rust-colored crystal. The caseback was deeply gouged with what looked like marks made by claws strong enough to scratch stainless steeI. You could tell it was a Rolex – its still bright gold bezel and crown, stamped “Rolex Oyster,” gave that much away, but that was about it. The truth is, it could have been made by anyone, and it wouldn’t have made any dif...

M38 Carcano: Best Bolt Rifle of World War Two?

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 06:27, Tuesday, 26 May

During the 1920s, Italy was concerned about insufficient lethality with their 6.5x52mm cartridge, and began experimenting with larger bore diameters. By the late 1930s they settled on a new 7.35x51mm round, based closely on the existing 6.5mm cartridge case. They also planned to replace the original M91 rifles with a much more compact and more modern short rifle for the infantry. This design was adopted as the M38, and it featured side-mounted sling attachments, a folding bayonet more like a fighting knife than the old sword type, and did away entirely with the long-range adjustable sight, instead opting for a fixed 200m notch.

I submit that this configuration was the ideal one for World War Two, and Italy was the only nation to really adopt a reality-based rifle design. The use of rifles beyond 300m was almost unheard of during the war, and the fixed sight both reduced production overhead and als...
