Back in 1977, Biden wrote:
“Should Voters Be Allowed To Register On Election Day? No,” Biden wrote in an op-ed to a now-defunct Wilmington, Del. newspaper in 1977. He even chided President Carter for proposing it.
A “reservation I have and one that is apparently shared by some of the top officials within the Department of Justice is that the president’s proposal could lead to a serious increase in vote fraud,” Biden wrote. . . .
When Republican get back in control, they increase it from 11 to 13, no 51, no, the entire citizen population and we get to see democracy in action. Watch the Democrats scream then!
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, long-time hero of the liberal side, lost her long battle with cancer. She passed away yesterday. My condolences to her family. Seriously, she was beloved of someone. They deserve a chance to mourn.
The media is awash with speculation on who might replace her, or whether she will be replaced before the election. The anguish from the Democrats is palpable. Should President Trump presume to nominate a replacement, they will howl, oh how they will howl.
I've watched the last two nominations, and to say that I was appalled at the unfounded allegations is understatement. It is my sincere belief that somewhere in a small room, someone is being coached with nearly religious fervor in casee our president decides to name a replacement. I am not the only one who expects this.

The area around Couer d'Alene and Sandpoint is looking increasingly attractive. Housing is 60% of the Boise area prices, and some of these houses are in forests and on lakes or rivers. Of course they get lots of snow. Perhaps a Corvette convertible will not replace the Jaguar.
But this is different now that Ginsburg has passed.
It looks like the old man threw the first punch, but the Antifa yelling, "You want to fight?" at that distance qualifies as assault. Some of us old farts use firearms because we know what would be the result in the same situation. Antifa would be laughing so hard as I threw a punch that I would have time to run.

Rip RBG. Just when we thought 2020 couldn’t get more politically charged.
September 18, 2020
Via text message.
[This is how I found out RBG died.
A few minutes later she also sent me a screen shot of Mitch McConnell’s statement on the passing of Justice Ginsburg. Here is the text (emphasis added):
The Senate and the nation mourn the sudden passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the conclusion of her extraordinary American life.
Justice Ginsburg overcame one personal challenge and professional barrier after another. She climbed from a modest Brooklyn upbringing to a seat on our nation’s highest court and into the pages of American history. Justice Ginsburg was thoroughly dedicated to the legal profession and to her 27 years of service on the Supreme Court. Her intelligence and determination earned her respect and admiration throughout the legal world, and indeed throughout the entire nation, which now grieves alongside her family, friends, and colleagues....
Well, as if 2020 wasn't interesting enough, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died from pancreatic cancer yesterday, only 45 days before what is likely to be a hotly contested presidential election.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell issued a statement last night that whomever President Trump nominates to replace Ginsburg will get a confirmation vote on the Senate floor.
This is good, and I hope it happens before the election.
Unlike Obama when he nominated Merrick Garland for SCOTUS, Trump is not a lame duck president working with a Senate controlled by the opposing party. The Republicans were given control over both the presidency and the Senate by the people because the people preferred their vision. They should do their jobs to the best of their ability. That includes filling vacancies on the Federal bench, all the way up to the Supreme Court.
As for not politicizing her replacement, consider a few things:
RBG could easily have stepped down while Obama was president and allowed him to pick her successor. However, she was so confident that Hillary Clinton would win in 2016 that she stayed on the bench in the hopes that her seat would ...
Sorry. But. You have to replace RBG(rip) immediately. Before the election. We, the whole damn country, does not have the luxury to put it off to February or even December.

Today I am out at the range to do some side-by-side shooting with the CETME-L and the CETME-LC. These are both MarColMar examples, in the original Spanish military configuration (ie, iron sights only). The LC model has a bit snappier recoil and more muzzle climb, which I suspect is due to the different recoil spring assembly it uses in order to accommodate a collapsing stock. The difference is small enough that it is not noticeable unless shooting both model side by side.
Still, the LC is my choice of the two. While is really doesn’t weigh significantly less than the full-size L model, I like the compactness and the better handling it gets as a result. Unfortunately, this comes at the cost of NFA registration.
Commenter 'Tim' mentioned that you should bring lots of ammo to the training class.
Well of course. If they say the class runs through 500 rounds, total, in the 4 days it goes on, I'd have at least 600 rounds with me. And probably a dozen magazine pre-loaded that I wouldn't count toward my personal total.
Though I question the value of high round count training classes. Personally. I just don't have the stamina for all that. I think once fatigued out, unless you are training specifically for fatigue and how it affects your shooting, you aren't getting the learning bang for the buck. And you might be reinforcing bad habits.
But a class that mentions a high round count does mean something positive. Sounds like more time at the range and less time in the classroom. Which is a good selling point for lots of shooting courses. Unless you are learning first aid, or various law work wrt firearms and self-defense.

It is the first time I have shot my AR-15 since I moved to Idaho. I also shot my Colt Mustang and Firestar to keep in practice, since those are my everyday carry weapons. The stainless steel guide rod has improved the Mustang accuracy, but remember it is a 2.75" barrel. Still 5 of 6 on the 8.5" x11" target at 25 feet. This is the only realistic distance for a very tiny .380.
It seems to be conventional thinking on the left that Trump did not criticize racists because they are part of his base.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died of metastatic pancreatic cancer at age 87, according to the U.S. Supreme Court
Appointed to the nation’s highest court in 1993 by former President Bill Clinton, Ginsburg was the oldest sitting member on the court. Despite a lengthy career on the court, she had never missed arguments until January 2019.
She became known for her soft-spoken demeanor that masked an analytical mind, a deep concern for the rights of every American and a commitment to upholding the Constitution. [More]
That must explain why she dissented in Heller and McDonald.

UPDATE: Herschel's thoughts...
It's 1879. The British are the British Empire, in possession of a modern army, and they think themselves insurmountable, especially by native peoples armed with spears and cow hide shields. One of the British territories is South Africa and they are engaged in taking control. They instigate a fight with the Zulus on a pretext and then invade the Zulu territory with 16,000 troops. The British are armed with Martini-Henry breech loading single shot rifles, 7 pound artillery pieces, and an early kind of rocket propelled grenades.
The Zulu impi are armed with assegai and cow hide shields. They are a culture of warriors. The Spartans would recognize the Zulu. With training starting at the age of six, every man trained to battle. In the century before the arrival of the British, the Zulu had centralized power and either overwhelmed or displaced neighboring tribes to become the dominant power in the southern tip of Africa.
The British split their forces, confident in their tactics and firepower. The details of this are available and interesting, but I am trying to get somewhere, so suffice it to say they are not one large unit when things get pear shaped. Lord Chelmsf...

A CNN journalist deleted his tweet and issued an apology after being called out for spreading coronavirus misinformation by critics including former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson.
That's the start, I'm just going to quote a couple of the responses he got:
Berenson slammed Feldscher for sharing such alarming numbers.
"Fact check: you can’t be this dumb," Berenson reacted. "Even if the herd immunity estimate of 60% is right (it’s wrong), this CNN doesn’t know the difference between reported cases and actual infections, which are 10x as high. So his estimate is off by a factor of at least 10x (likely much more)."
Berenson commended Feldscher to taking ownership of his tweet but slammed his news organization for allowing "nonstop panic porn" throughout the pandemic.
"I'm glad he deleted the tweet. If only CNN could go back and delete the last six months of nonstop panic porn... But it's a start," Berenson told Fox News....

The Spanish adopted the 5.56mm CETME-L rifle in the mid 1980s, although they only used it until the late 1990s, when it was replaced by the G36. One of the sub variants made was the LC (“Corto”) shortened version with a 12.6″ (320mm) barrel and collapsing stock. This adaptation actually required substantial changes to the internals parts of the gun, as the standard CETME-L rifle has its recoil spring housed in the buttstock – something that obviously cannot be done with a collapsing stock design. Thus, the LC model has a different bolt carrier, recoil spring, stock, and charging handle than the regular rifle.
This example is a Marcolmar production one, registered as a short-barreled rifle.
The Skunwerks custom firearms division of Gunwerks built a pretty interesting bolt-action rifle which they named Lite SabR.

The core analysis is the base for the complete evaluation and consists of five individual numbers that are calculated based on name and date of birth. These five numbers are called elements and outline the overall personality traits and qualities that a person might possess.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — The coronavirus cases on lower Broadway may have been so low that the mayor’s office and the Metro Health Department decided to keep it secret.

Yesterday, I pointed to a tweet about making caltrops from stolen rebar, which Twitter left up. 9/16/20 New York Post:
Twitter has suspended the account of a Chinese virologist who has claimed that COVID-19 was manufactured in a laboratory.
Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a former researcher at the Hong Kong School of Public Health, went dark on the platform after she accused China of covering up evidence that the deadly virus came from a lab in Wuhan.
“They don’t want the people to know this truth. Also, that’s why I got suspended, I got suppression [and] I am the target that China Communist Part wants to [sic] disappear,” she told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday.
There’s an overall word for that and I have spent fifteen minutes or more trying to remember what it is. Annoying.
Anyway – A few weeks ago I had to put on my Joel the Sexton hat after burying Laddy, to make the pedestal for his headstone.

The opinion holds that even if butterfly or "balisong" knives are protected by the Second Amendment of the Constitution, a state law banning any possession, manufacture or transport of such knives is constitutionally valid.

This is just in-your-face, and the Ninth hardly fills the heart with hope. Neither does SCOTUS, for that matter, with its inclination to let Intolerable Acts stand simply by doing nothing. It doesn't matter how well-argued and logical a case is, those in "authority" bent on tyranny are not going to relent until there is a credible "or else" attached to a demand to back off.
You behave according to traditional Western and Biblical jurisprudence, and then the unthinkable happens. You’ve been baited into a response. Every action has been videoed. A prosecutor charges you with some crime, or even decides not to. [More]
The lawless use the law against us. What they don't seem to realize is those laws protect them from us, too.
If self-preservation requires the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God to take precedence, you might want to think about ways of not getting caught.

Here are some music trivia questions that really surprised me. Answers in the comments.
1. Which artist/group had the most Billboard 200 #1 albums in a single year (extra credit: what year was it?)?
2. Which artist/group had the most albums in the Billboard 200 Top 10 simultaneously? Who were #2 and #3 on this list?
3. Which album spent the most number of weeks at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart?
Like all good trivia, these are obscure and unexpected (at least they were to me).
SO, now that we're sharing our smoke with the rest of the country...
...here's what it looks like in front of Schloss Drang right now:©2020, D.W.Drang & The CluemeterSo we thought it was going to clear by today. Turns out that what rain we got is not at high enough altitudes to do the trick, and more importantly, was not accompanied by winds strong enough to do it.
Because they lie about everything. COVID-19 emails from Nashville mayor’s office show disturbing revelation. It would apparently be a problem for the Nashville mayor if the public discovered that COVID-19 really wasn’t coming from bars and restaurants. Emails between the mayor’s senior advisor and the health department reveal only a partial picture. But what they […]
Crossman and Benjamin are two of the most recognizable names in the air rifle industry.

The Craftsman Collection from Benjamin Air Guns has just […]

Hoppe’s No. 9 – if you’re a firearms enthusiast, you almost certainly know it and love it.

It’s been one of the most popular firearms maintenance products […]

You guys know why Europeans have such ridiculous ideas about what America is like? It’s because we don’t have an American news media. We have a New York City news media, with some affiliates in LA and DC.
The people who present our image to the world are the most vapid, sheltered, narcissistic, pseudo-intellectual, snoots in the entire country. They seldom venture outside of their neighborhoods and their entire understanding of the rest of their nation is nothing but a big bag or stereotypes and projected neuroses.
Of course other countries have dumb ideas about what America is like. The Americans telling them about America don’t know what America is like either.

The utter and absolute absurdity of Governor Eric Holcomb ceding his responsibility to the citizens of the State of Indiana (apparently his brain and testicles went also) to an unelected gynecologist named Box just proves that we are trapped in a Cosmic Nightmare/Joke.
It seems that in return for his soul, he received in return an unending supply of sports metaphors and long-sleeved tee shirts that stick out six inches past the cuffs on his sports jackets.
A benevolent dictator is still a dictator.“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at ...

With all the remote Zoom school learning going on, teachers are seeing Toys in kids' rooms. Some of those are toy guns. Then the teacher snitches that kid out to the cops, the cops bang on the door and scare the family, and the kids gets suspended.
This is evil. For shame.
They are toys.
My parents were anti-gun-ish. But not like other relatives that wouldn't let their kids play with even a stick that they pretended was a gun. My parents knew a toy gun was harmless. And my teachers back then knew that too.
A toy gun is not a threat to shoot up the school. Hell, a REAL gun isn't either in 99.999% of the cases. For the sake of all that is holy won't someone please act like an adult in these sorts of situations?...
