That and This

Hurricane Season


Let’s Go Brandon

QOTD: “investigating the Bidens is like tracking a bleeding bear in a snowstorm….there’s evidence everywhere.” A very interesting interview that touches briefly on matters relating to the President as well as his son.

I don’t think that Pedo Joe will survive as POTUS after October. The Dems will 25th Amendment him for being non-compos mentos, avoiding a messy impeachment and The Ho will be sworn in to replace him. Her VP appointment will be one to watch.




It’s a revolver that fires a 12.7×55mm .50 caliber rifle round. The round fires from the bottom chamber like the Unica and Mateba.  It may be a bit too much for daily carry and not quick enough in a gunfight to clear the holster first. BUT once you unlimber it and detonate it, R-E-S-P-E-C-T.


Bullet Points:

** I always get the shakes before a drop. I’ve had the injections, of course, and hypnotic preparation, and it stands to reason that I can’t really be afraid. The ship’s psychiatrist has checked my brain waves and asked me silly questions while I was asleep and he tells me that it isn’t fear, it isn’t anything important — it’s just like the trembling of an eager racehorse in the starting gate. I couldn’t say about that; I’ve never been a racehorse. But the fact is: I’m scared silly, every time. — Juan Rico – Starship Troopers (Heinlein)

** NY Post – Sathanandan thanked the “incredible” Minneapolis PD for assisting in the terrifying experience — a far cry from her attitude toward law enforcement three years ago when she posted online that she and other activists were “going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department.”

** Next Stop: Soylent Green – This process may sound macabre, but it’s not brand new. It is, however, becoming more attractive as people search for more environmentally sound death options.

** Escape from Burning Man – We’ve all been in this situation: You want to leave a party, but you keep getting sidelined on your way out the door. This year’s Burning Man festival abruptly dumped 70,000 people into that scenario when torrential rains turned the hardpan of the Black Rock desert into a soupy, muddy mess and organizers told attendees to shelter in place and conserve food and water.


Identify the Aircraft – It’s Navy Day




What is its claim to fame?


Bonus Point


Pick-up Line: (To Snow White) “How’s the apple pie today?”

The Inn Between (Disneyland Employee’s Cafeteria) – A walk down memory lane. Some of the prettier women in Anaheim worked in the Disneyland cast. The guys from Anaheim PD had lunch (Code 7) at the Inn Between and met the Sleeping Beauties and Snow Whites – local hotties. I recall those days vividly, but, long time gone now, I guess.  The food was good too.

  1. Random curiosity on plane #3 – is that the Curtiss Pusher that Ely flew off a ‘carrier’ as proof of concept?

    1. I was leaning toward that too until I remembered the Pusher was a single-seat aircraft and this is a two-seater.

      1. Grew up on a farm with no TV, so I read encyclopedias for entertainment during the winters(knowledge from a long time ago and very fuzzy now). The pic of the Curtiss Pusher, as I remembered it, was a side view that didn’t show a good view of the seating arrangement.

  2. Identify the Aircraft:
    1. McDonnell F3H Demon
    2. North American T-2 Buckeye
    3. Curtiss Model E. First aircraft purchased by U. S. Navy
    4. Messerschmitt Bf 109E

  3. Apparently from what I’ve read at burning man you are supposed to be self sufficient with food and water for the week. The shops are only selling supplemental supplies. But expecting “alternative” idiots to listen to safety advice is a waste of time from situations I’ve seen over the years. Tying your tent to the No Camping Crocodiles sign is one of my favourites.

    I always take two days extra with me as a minimum when planning remote work or hunting trips. Even now there’s 10 litres of water and two days food in my work 4wd and I’m only an hour out of the city.

  4. 1. The McDonnell F3H Demon
    2. T-2C Buckeye
    3. Curtiss III.
    Glenn Curtiss, hanging from a crane’s hook, helps guide his fragile hydro aeroplane as it is hauled up the side of the armored cruiser Pennsylvania on 17 February 1911. This experiment in San Diego Bay, California, helped earn Curtiss the contract for two of the Navy’s first three aircraft.
    4. Messerschmitt Bf 109E. Which had one of the fastest vertical climbs of any fighter aircraft during WW II

    1. Yes on the aircraft. You got them. #3 is the US Navy’s first aircraft. #4 is an ME-109 given by the Luftwaffe to the Empire of Japan. They tested it, took it apart, and copied it but it was too little, too late for the Japanese.

  5. Anti-cop Sathanandan- An America-hating anarchist….zero sympathy for this piece of garbage. I call Bravo Sierra — the ONE picture being pushed appears to be another fake PsyOp distraction to garner a sympathetic response. Half of us are not that gullible. I’ll do a full mea culpa if it turns out to be true, but ZERO comment on her “attackers”. Plus, If she had a broken leg her countenance would be more pained, not sporting nice makeup with what looks like fake blood. Gotta hand it to the Marxists tho, they certainly know how to act, and timely…

    …The Biden Crime Syndicate’s patriarch is really starting to short-circuit on a daily basis. October may be his last, but let’s not forget they chose Harris for a reason, she’s even more stupid and malleable than The Pedophile Uniparty Money-Launderer in Chief, meaning they will full-court press their Marxism take-over of our Country between now and net November, precisely what PDJT passionately enumerated Friday evening from Mount Rushmore.. Which leads me to this little repulsive tidbit…further connecting the dots as The Handlers set up Harris for the Oval Office:

    The Nan, fresh off another face lift spackle job to make her appear benign, has announced her intent to run again for “her” seat, stating San Fran Psycho needs her help, despite her help has made a beautiful city a total 3rd world cesspool of drugs and crime and abandoned businesses. Let us never forget her spiteful act of tearing up PDJT’s speech. Yet the galactically stupid will put her back in charge.

      1. As my dad would say, “Can’t see six inches past her nose.” Likely held up to a mirror as a child and told how wonderful she is, either that (or in combination) she’s just a hate-filled moron with a big mouth.

        When society eschews God’s principles we get narcissists who believe their own BS.

        1. Paul and Ed: you guys are better human beings than I. My take is that she and her ilk know EXACTLY what they are doing and that they are hypocrites. They Just Don’t Care. And if you call her out on it, she’ll cry Racism! And Misogyny! And Anti-Hinduism! If she’s some sort of sexual deviant (I can’t be arsed to look her up), she’ll bitch and moan that you’re hating on her for that too.

          Sometimes people hate you because of your actions and behavior, and not because of factors that you don’t control.

          1. Only on the surface Mike…doesn’t stop me from quietly wanting to drive a stake thru her black heart, ridding the world of another demented POS Marxist…otherwise they win if given a free pass.

  6. Skunk Baxter is an interesting guy. I’m pretty sure he’s the only person who was inducted in the rock and roll hall of fame who then went on and “worked as a defense consultant and advised U.S. members of Congress on missile defense.” (Opening paragraph of the Wikipedia page on him).

    That cut from “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number” was one of his best known pieces while he was in Steely Dan. His induction into the HoF was for his time in the Doobie Brothers.

    1. I am always amazed at the level of musical talent some possess, and these groups we played through our Jensen 6×9’s on the rear deck had such talent we almost took for granted, playing they with such second nature ease in their more seasoned years. Rainy here, after listening to that bit am now feeling sentimental.

        1. We did, knew palpable freedom…as long as we were home for dinner.

          ”Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose. Nothin’, don’t mean nothin’…if it ain’t free”

    1. This is brilliant…in a world where people seemed more mind-numbed and dumbed down than ever. Thx for sharing.

      Ex: Power went out yesterday, odd on a calm sunny day. Came back on a few hour later but, as was discovered, the landline was down (we still have ours since cell is sketchy despite a booster, etc). Called Centurylink…vmail system is electronic, and totally useless, even if you attempt the prompt overrides representative,…<repair!. Apparently they now have hours and this being the weekend…nada.

      So I started the online Chat thing…which takes fifteen minutes to type out and wade thru for a 30 second problem description (the tech needs to reset the equipment stanchion enclosure that never reboots after an outage.) Despite asking several times to the “Virtueless Assistant” typer on the the other end (probably in her pj’s watching The View) to call my cell for efficiency, was told they “can’t call”. A phone company can’t call a customer???

      America is toast if these morons continue on their apathetic path of uselessness.

      1. Offshore in the Gulf we have Comcast/Xfinity. A sentence our last 5-year contract was a guaranteed “immediate contact” number with a human being should there be a problem.
        I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn …

        1. Only one sign of the times when employees don’t show up for work anymore and companies bend to their laziness…as I take the rare day off from chores and projects.

  7. RSh-12:
    and less than 5 lbs unloaded
    after going thru a box of fifty at the range
    Well – I know a good orthopedist – specializes in wrists

  8. Seems like the Puppet Masters could just change Pudding Joe’s medicine any day of the week, and let him “die in office”. They obviously have him seriously tuned up all the time.

    I’ve always liked the fires-off-the-bottom concept for revolvers, but IDK if I’m man enough for that one.


  9. While quite comfortable with light loads My 45/70 BFR rocks you back pretty good with full strength hunting loads About all I can handle for more than a cylinder or two. Think I will pass on the 50 BMG pistol. There is enough going on with my wrists as they are without adding in that bit of recoil fun.

    Another reason to like Steely Dan and the Doobie Brothers. What is it with guitarists? Between Brian May as an astrophysicist and Skunk as a defense expert they are setting a trend.

    Burning man, when I go out in the sticks it is to get away from people not to join umpteen thousand other people.
