The Donkey Plan

It wasn’t a complicated plan. Have primarily white liberals demand that the police be de-funded, inner-city people would loot the business, burn, rape, and murder unhindered. Then they’d demand that FEDERAL police be sent in to restore order.

It’s been a plan gone wrong, but all in all, I think that the donkeys are very pleased with what they’ve accomplished.

Heraldry of various European countries c.1519

My Norman French Ancestors had three red chevrons on a yellow field. No rockers.  Yay me…  (it makes me an E-5 for life.)

 

Sigh

Everyone wants a great hanger project. I look at this picture and know that I’d be punching above my weight.

 

Identify the Mystery Tank

I think that it’s a tough enough ID that the answer is at the bottom of the page. (hint: It’s NOT a French tank)

 

Here’s where to buy things not made in China.

Here are some links to local and regional chains that have a decent online presence. They are Main Street in their region. They support their local communities, pride themselves on excellent customer service, and are price competitive with Amazon.

 

Orwell’s Parting Shot:

This (1984) was not a manual to follow! This was a warning to the World of the future that we are heading toward.

“In our world, there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self-abasement. The sex instinct will be eradicated. We shall abolish the orgasm. There will be no loyalty except loyalty to the Party.

“But always there will be the intoxication of power. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who’s helpless.

“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face, forever.”

 

Cartoon-of-the-Day

 

Your Betters Speak

In a document the Biden regime Department of Justice is calling “guidance“, the agency repeats the often-mocked declaration that “The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history” and chastises supporters of election integrity for demanding “an unusual second round of examinations” in states with reports of widespread voter fraud. The agency then suggests these audits could violate the Civil Rights Act of 1960. They’re racist.

“There are federal or criminal penalties attached,” the Department of Justice asserts. They claim that those who arrange forensic audits of the 2020 election “can face fines of up to $1,000 and imprisonment of up to one year for each violation.” Then, their intimidating document suggests that these audits represent “intimidation”.

Answer to the Mystery Tank

The Soviet MS-1 light tank. Also known as T-18, it was the first Soviet-designed tank, though it took heavy reference from the French Renault FT.

    • Indeed. Likely that rig is going to get toasty right quick.

      During my FFL days in Kalifornia, state law grandfathered pre-existing magazines, so according to the law, we had pre-ban and post-ban magazines. Obviously no serial numbers on either, so good luck with that. At our local gun show I used to sell 10 round belts of linked, live 50 cal. as wall hangers. I would solemnly swear to each customer that all the links were pre-ban.

  1. I looked at that tank photo and Renault immediately came to mind. It appears the T-18 wasn’t made in large numbers and wasn’t nearly as widely used as the FT. I do understand there is one FT still in use in Yemen.
    I own no magazines. I do have a number of items that identify as paperweights.

  2. A little distracted this AM…still reeling from NOT getting invited to King O’s b-day party…under the big tent, like the contrived circus that it was…hobnobbing with the Idiots & Morons crowd waiting in line to genuflect and get their masked/unmasked picture with “him” (sorta like those Cowboys & Indians magazine charity event pictures, only with contempt for the “little people”.) What would the media say if a global warming/climate change tsunami hit right then? Missed opportunity.

    The ammo feeder pack…there’s always a work-around for stupid “rules” by weasels.

    No shop is too big, but that hanger might just work. And it’s obvious the military has THE BEST concrete flatwork subs, I mean, just look at that floor (drool).

    E-5- Cool…a man’s gotta have something to hang his hat on. Me, I’m so Heinz 57 I’m an E-1 x 6, altho come to think of it CommonCore math would make that an E-6. But I know it ain’t so, I’m still a Peon SubClass 2, and I’m okay with that.

    • IF you had self-identified as George Clooney, I’m sure that you’d have been invited. You don’t have to be George or Oprah, just self-identify because if you’re woke, it’s the very same thing.

  3. Vote audits to find fraud are racist? Are they saying only certain races commit fraud? The ones who are so stupid they can’t figure out how to get an ID?

    I think peak absurdity was this weekend when UW (Wisconsin) removed a rock because a hundred years ago someone said it was racist.

    It’s the universal accusation. “Racism – is there nothing it can’t do?”

    • Only white people are racist (the Chinese are lumped in with Europeans) and if an inner-city person loots a business, he’s striving for equity – a laudable thing to do. You need to mingle with the liberal arts crowd at your local university. I’m sure that they’d educate you.

    • Great blog…at the street level most do not get to see.

      I suspect half of Americans – normal thinking humble people – will have gratitude for this man’s service to his community – at great sacrifice to himself and his family, while the other half (guesstimate) will have contempt because they simply do not care and eliminating the police fits into their anarchy agenda.

      Sad state of affairs.

  4. LL, I don’t know if you would be punching above your weight on the hangar project or not. You could start with the biplanes, graduate to the F 80? and then move on to the Bone. It could be a decades long hobby.
    As far as the floors go I could never see painting a perfectly good concrete floor with epoxy. We used to wax our bay floors and then buff them. Ended up with a really nice looking oil resistant finish that was easy to bring back to its original appearance if we spilled something untoward on it. It also gave the NCOs something to task the airman with if the airman needed a little motivational therapy.

  5. Larson was both sneaky and hilarious! If you get that Bone, you better bring a LOT of cash. They are a maintenance nightmare… NO idea on the tank, not an Army type… 🙂

  6. I would have thought that the tank was an early US light series, a variation of the M2/M3/M5 lineage.
    Or some abomination from Marmon-Harrington.

    So… Soviet. Yeah. Love all those rivets. Just asking to have them sheared off by a round and the inside portion of said rivet go flying around and killing the crew. But Soviet so don’t care one way or another.

    Sneaky not showing us a side view of the running gear, that would have been a pretty good give-away.

    As to the Donkey Plan. All those ‘released’ officers can now get jobs on private security details for the very politicians who shirt-canned them. Because you can’t be a Dem without saying one thing and doing another.

    • Everyone copied the early French tanks. in 1935 they were extraordinary. By 1942, they were scrap iron. A lot of those captured were put into service with the Wehrmacht and sent to Poland. Same with a few of the Czech tanks. The (Czech) Skoda 47 mm KPÚV vz. 38 anti-tank gun was repurposed by the Germans as well.

  7. In my Navy ’83-2012, those red chevrons for life marked you as a bad boy. There’s something to be said for that. I used to meet a lot of Chiefs with red crows.

    • There’s nothing to be ashamed about red crows. The gold ones mean that you’re a bit of a suck up and never enjoyed a night on the town — or you can run faster than the SP’s.

  8. RE: “Your Betters Speak”….

    When they pick and chose which laws to enforce, they have no respect for any Rule-of-Law.

    I think we should start calling them “Rice Lawyers”……

    • They are “The Sophisticated”…get a pass on evil-doing and lawlessness. (Can’t believe that reporter-ette said it out loud, but they aren’t hiding inherent disdain for us “little people”.)

      • I knew and worked with some real “TV People” when I was in the Broadcasting biz in L.A.

        Don Henley’s song “Dirty Laundry” is 100% spot-on, bubble-headed bleach blondes and all.

        And his song “Get Over It” describes about 75% of the rest of L.A.’s population….

  9. Back when junk mail was physical and arrived in your mailbox I used to get offers to “help you discover the history of your noble ancestors and find your ancestral coat of arms!” Yeah, good luck with that, fly-by-night heraldry company. Hope your databases cover Jiangsu province.

    On the other hand, as an ersatz Finn* (so said the Swedish Disaster — all 175cm/54kg and dual doctorates of her) I am offended that Finland is not that graphic. Sverige, Norge and Danemark yeah, Suomi no. 😡 (And don’t tell me because it’s circa 1519 and there was no nation-state of Finland then. That’s no excuse. This is blatant anti-Suomism. Shame! And Do Better! Statues need to come down over this, and reparations are absolutely required. Finnish Arms Matter.)

    *Our actual Finnish friends are NOT amused by claims that I am a Finn. No, not amused at all.
    Too bad. Hakkaa THAT päälle in your toque and smoke it!

    • Mike_C – for the right amount of money, I can arrange for your induction into the Mystic Knights of the Sea, which comes with its own heraldry and a full box set of Amos and Andy DVDs. I don’t know of any Fins in the Mystic Knights of the Sea. You could one-up them all. As an added feature I could arrange to have your DNA sent to the moon and have a star named after the Pretty Korean Girl with certificates suitable for framing.
