Today is the birthday of Congressman Richard Henry Lee (1732–1794) — January 20th, 1993 is a Red Letter Day for me. That was the day that Bill Clinton was first sworn in as President. That is also the same day that I resigned my commission as a U.S. Army Captain. I did so because I detested the idea of Clinton as my Commander in Chief. My commissioning document has Ronald Reagan’s signature. — You may recall reading that my mother passed away, in October. Her house in Livermore, California just went up for sale, yesterday.

Food This was one of the toughest areas to address – I didn’t want her to have to do things like hunt, fish, trap, or forage on the way, since those take a lot of time and can be very dependent upon the season, but 7 days’ worth of food is heavy and bulky so I proposed an alternate approach for her. Since she takes a suitcase and stays overnight for any trip that’s not immediately local, I recommended that she only keep 3 days’ worth of food in the backpack and bring another 4 days’ …

For many people, January is a time to set goals or resolutions for the new year. I must admit, I am one of those people that never felt the urge to do so. Probably because at some point in my past I realized I never carried through on those well planned intentions. However, this year I decided to change things up a bit. Perhaps it’s the feeling of, “New Year, New Me,” or maybe just because I want to challenge myself to grow. Regardless, I made the decision to set some pistol training goals for 2022 that I think you may find beneficial, too.
We’re all tired of the “shrink it and pink it” attitude most companies adopted when the number of women in the outdoors began to increase. We are here, and it’s time that companies start to cater to the fact that we aren’t going anywhere. We are staking our claim in the outdoor world, and all of our bodies are comin’ with us. That means we want clothes that fit our bodies, not a smaller version of the men’s line (hello, we have hips!). There are several companies doing this very well, and I am here to tell you about my favorite of them, Ditale Outdoors.

This has actually happened to me twice since I moved here. The first was on a second-hand teapot, so it didn’t owe me anything. The one two days ago was a nearly-new but really cheap and crappy pot I got from Amazon. The “this” in question was the knob breaking right off the lid.
The Monday morning water run was held on Tuesday afternoon this week, and I took that opportunity for my monthly visit to what I’ve come to think of as the Jeep’s final resting place. To my surprise, I noticed that the Jeep had moved. That was astounding enough to drive me into the shop.
“Didn’t somebody call you?” asked the manager. He asked this with the same level of sincerity he used three weeks ago when promising to get the Jeep on a rack that very day, which is to say none at all. I didn’t even reply, just waited.
He called another guy over from the far end of the shop. That guy came over and opened the conversation by asking, with apparently genuine curiosity, “What were you doing when the transmission let go?”
I said, truthfully, that I was slowly backing up in my own driveway. “Why do you ask?”
He said that he had delivered the transmission’s apparently mutilated corpse to the rebuilder, helped the guy take it apart, and “It seriously looked like a grenade went off in there.”
I said that judging from the sound it made at the time, I wasnR...
It’s a dim cool rainy morning here at the Secret Lair, very undesertlike, and I’m taking this opportunity for some maintenance/repair.
It appears that Politico, that epitome of biased, government-lusting “journalism” has published an editorial that the United States Constitution of 1787, as amended, is un- and anti-democratic. They are far from alone in that.
As a result, many so-called “Conservatives” have condemned this as totally partisan and flat-out wrong.
They can picture the Founding Fathers as spinning in their graves at this accusation.
So can I – not at the claim of the editorial, but at the response of the “conservatives.” The Constitution WAS and IS anti-democratic in general, even though some parts of the form of government it established included elements of democracy.
But today, most (if not almost all) “conservatives” are as vocal about “American Democracy” as their supposed leftist opponents. Those of us who ask for some logic and reason are few and unheard.
Let us delve into that.

Jewish activist and legislators line up behind state’s new gun bill
Loren Lieb’s son, Josh, was shot twice during the North Valley Jewish Community Center shooting in 1999.
At the time, Josh was a 6-year-old at the JCC’s summer camp. When a white supremacist came onto the Granada Hills campus with multiple firearms, Josh was shot in the shin and the hip. Fortunately, the bullets narrowly missed his spine, and he survived.
The incident exposed his mother, Loren, to the grim realities of gun violence in the United States, where approximately 40,000 people die every year from gun-related injuries, according to a 2019 Pew study (some 60 percent of those are suicides), and in excess of 393 million guns are in circulation, according to a 2018 report from the Switzerland-based Small Arms Survey.

Five times since last May, sheriff's deputies in Kansas and California have stopped armored cars operated by Empyreal Logistics, a Pennsylvania-based company that serves marijuana businesses and financial institutions that work with them. The cops made off with cash after three of those stops, seizing a total of $1.2 million, but did not issue any citations or file any criminal charges, which are not necessary to confiscate property through civil forfeiture. That process allows police to pad their budgets by seizing assets they allege are connected to criminal activity, even when the owner is never charged, let alone convicted. [More]

Apparently the douchnozzle that owns Penzey's spices has decided that his best strategy to increase his market share is to declare MLK day to be Republicans are Racists day. And he did so by sending emails (yes plural) to the people on his mailing list.
One point of irony is that after spewing hate and outright lies, he exhorts people to 'choose love'.

A lot of people see the constantly-increasing price of collectible firearms, and assume that guns must be a pretty good investment. Well, they really aren’t. The stock market outperforms collectible firearms with ease. But if you want to buy guns with an eye to increasing prices, there are a few things I would suggest.
1) Know your subject. The more specialized knowledge you have in a particular area, the better you will be positioned to find the best and rarest examples.
2) Be discriminating for condition. The highest condition examples are always the most desirable. They will increase in price the most if the pattern becomes more valuable, and decrease the least if it becomes less valuable.
3) Be willing to sell things, or else acknowledge that you are either collecting or building a nest egg for your survivors to sell when you die (or...

But it is likely an interesting story.
Hot Springs, Ark. (1933)
08/15/1933: A lawyer confessed to poisoning “a man, his wife, and their two children because the man ‘knew too much.’” A third child had seen the lawyer adding the strychnine to the grape juice, warned his parents, and refused the drink. The lawyer had hired the father “to steal papers from the Akron prosecuting attorney which involved a ‘big shot’” the lawyer’s firm was defending. The lawyer attempted suicide after confessing.
Like me, you probably get five or more calls every day seeking victims of various medicines or medical devices or seeking to sell extended car warranties (most of which are so full of exceptions as to be worthless).
It seems that there is a brouhaha building between the cell phone industry and the commercial flight industry. Evidently, the roll-out of 5G technology might affect flight-safety technology.
(AP) - AT&T will postpone new wireless service near some airports planned for this week after the nation’s largest airlines said the service would interfere with aircraft technology and cause massive flight disruptions.
From what I understand, the 5G towers use a frequency band that is close to the band used by radar altimeters. The airlines are worried that spurious signals from the 5G towers could play havoc with their altimeters, which are used for landing and terrain avoidance.
Slamming a plane into the ground is a major flight disruption, no doubt about it.
I'm no aviator, but seems like it might be a problem.

The DNC Official news media are reporting a feud between Trump and DeSantis over the 2024 nomination. While anything the DNC's mouthpieces says is likely to be made up to promote internal Republican feuding, a comment over there raised a serious question about Trump running in 2024. He will be 78 when he takes office like Joe Biden. Even if Trump is tack sharp at 78, unlike Biden, what about by the end of his term when he turns 82? Some of Reagan's second term mistakes (Contragate) may have been early Alzheimer's, which finally took him.
Trump has very strong negatives with enough voters that he might only be able to defeat the Empress. DeSantis is the obvious choice.

Commentary’s Christine Rosen finds puzzling the Atlantic’s current obsessive dooming-and-glooming. Why is the American Establishment wallowing in self pity all the time?

“We filed the lawsuit after we discovered that California’s Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, a resource guide for local school districts, included prayer to Aztec gods – the same deities that were invoked when the Aztecs worshipped with human sacrifices,” said Paul Jonna, partner at LiMandri & Jonna LLP and Thomas More Society Special Counsel. “The Aztec prayers at issue – which seek blessings from and the intercession of these demonic forces – were not being taught as poetry or history. Rather, the curriculum instructed students to chant the prayers for emotional nourishment after a ‘lesson that may be emotionally taxing or even when student engagement may appear to be low.’ The idea was to use them as prayers.” [More]

07/03/1933: A school board election turned violent, causing eight deaths and three injured.
Started feeling crappy last Wednesday afternoon. Headache, sinuses, and tired. The only cough was from a dry throat due to sinus drainage--never hit my chest.
Scored a home test which indicated negative for the wuflu but read later that the home tests work better with a saliva sample. So really don't know and didn't care enough to go out and have my brainpan swabbed to find out for sure.
Stayed home--why? Because I was sick. Didn't matter what it was, didn't want to share the germs.
B kept me in Chick-Fil-A spicy chicken sandwiches and other foodstuffs and another friend brought organic goods, vitamins and treats in drive-by food drops. I had soups and such in the pantry too so all was well on the food front.

There IS a difference, at least in 2022. (At least in some leaders/members/supporters of each party.)
Let me explain. For years and years, many Libertarians – especially during political campaigns, have gleefully pointed out that “there ain’t a dime’s difference between the GOP and Democrats.” I’ve done it myself. And in many ways, that was true then – and is now.
They are, among other things, BOTH bad for liberty, for prosperity, and for peace. They are both bad when it comes to growing government, increasing totalitarian control by government, and making the whole planet a mess. They are the two wings of the evil predatory scavenger Americans chose instead of a turkey as the “national bird.”
… the last two-plus years, and especially the last year, under the latest Democratic regime (Uncle Joe)… have demonstrated that there ARE some very nasty ways in which one old party is worse than the other. At least right now.

Really? Nearly half of Democrats are okay with locking people up over a medical decision? That's kind o harsh.
