    That elm is a survivor.
    So far it seems to have survived the bark beetle Dutch elm disease, glo-bull worming, glo-bull cooling, climate change, any variety of pollutants, to include automobile smog and politician

      And some amount of rope and dead weight, from time to time.

      I thought it was glowball warmening…or are we talking a variant of the other two?

    At my age and having medical issues there’s little I can do…. Doesn’t mean I won’t be clapping and cheering as ( Enemies Domestic ) are dragged kicking and screaming to the rope.

      “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
      ― Patrick Henry

      Fingers only need between roughly 5 to 10 lbs. of pull force to be effective.

    Any trigger pull over 2 pounds is too much. The double set on my target flintlock releases as 2 OUNCES!

    • December 14, 2022 at 9:03 pm

      NYPD thinks 10-12 Pounds is about right.
      Not that I care.

        Lots of dead bystanders in NYC do.

        Our duty sidearm, H&K P2000, an otherwise excellent choice, was set as high as they could get it, it had a harder pull than any revolver in DA, I almost needed to use a finger on my support hand to assist the trigger finger.
        I think the max setting was supposed to be 14 lbs but it felt like at least 16 and maybe more.
        Then they wondered why so many otherwise good recruits were failing the firearms qualification all of a sudden and wouldn’t listen to anyone who knew.
        Hard triggers are just screaming to pull rounds way off target in a stressed situation when an Officer who only shoots once a year at qualification time tends to yank the trigger anyway.
        That’s the problem with an adjustable anything, eventually someone who has no clue what they’re doing is going to adjust it.

    Can a trebuchet be used instead? Fling them like beater cars for points…

      Bonus points if you use a supersonic trebuchet and hurl them out onto a frozen lake. (Yes, there is a YouTube video).

    Professor Ronin

    This quote has weighed heavily on my heart today:

    The most terrifying force of death comes from the hands of Men who wanted to be left Alone. They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love. They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it.

    They know that the moment they fight back, their lives as they have lived them; are over. The moment the Men who wanted to be left alone are forced to fight back, it is a form of suicide. They are literally killing off who they used to be. Which is why, when forced to take up violence, these Men who wanted to be left alone, fight with unholy vengeance against those who murdered their former lives. They fight with raw hate, and a drive that cannot be fathomed by those who are merely play-acting at politics and terror.

    TRUE TERROR will arrive at these people’s door, and they will cry, scream, and beg for mercy… it will fall upon the deaf ears of the Men who just wanted to be left alone. -UNK

      That quote you provide, Professor Ronin, refreshes my memory of this work attributed to Kipling:

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

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

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

      It was not preached to the crowd.
      It was not taught by the state.
      No man spoke it aloud.
      When the Saxon began to hate.

      It was not suddently bred.
      It will not swiftly abate.
      Through the chilled years ahead,
      When Time shall count from the date.
      That the Saxon began to hate.

      • December 14, 2022 at 9:05 pm

        The canonical Kipling text has “English”, rather than “Saxon”.

    • December 14, 2022 at 6:32 pm

      Sad, but true.
      Let’s not lose our resolve, in any case.

    • December 14, 2022 at 10:23 pm

      Kipling says it beautifully and poetically, as have others if a bit less so.

      But those who need to see it and know it, are too stupid to understand and learn from history, and instead continue to repeat it.

      Harsh words and harsher action is what is called for now.

    Couldn’t get much more OT than this but then again if we can’t have a pack of Dawgs how about a pack of Bears? Two streets over in my neighborhood, five, count ’em FIVE saunter past his garage…

    • December 14, 2022 at 10:45 pm

      Cue the Hippo Song!

      I want a pack of black bears for Christmas…
      One or two or even four just won’t do…
      Mama says the bears will eat me up but then,
      Park Ranger says they’re (mostly) vegetarians…

    And when the killing they instigated starts, the Left will ask, “WHY??”
