    They won’t work with DBD after Sam – like that?

    Been reading for years, and not only because I identify a small bit with our heroes. (My husband is a scruffy-lookin’ [that’s a compliment] combat vet, and I’ve often been accused of being an engineer. Think Sam’s a better shot than me, though.) Four kids later, I have virtually NO time to be on the computer aside from official business, but I still manage to keep up with DBD. I swear, if you had done anything to Sam or Zed, you would have heard my anguished howls echoing across the Indian River from my house to yours…

    • October 7, 2015 at 1:10 am

      You would hear and read anguish from many, many people. Strange as it may seem, these characters speak for me.

  • October 6, 2015 at 10:18 pm

    Aww, I was hoping for rescue from a civilian border patrol group and highlight/contrast of those groups versus the illegals in the strip.

  • October 6, 2015 at 10:18 pm

    Chris, you should publicize your local vendors; I think there are quite a few out here who would like to thank them for their support and probably some -like me- who would like to in turn support them with our patronage.

    National firms won’t work with DBD anymore?

    There’s more to that story. Tell or don’t tell.

    • October 6, 2015 at 10:47 pm

      I agree. Those vendors who do help should get a mention.

        Only “Old Timers” know where Eau Gallie is, any more.

        And my parents brought property “West of Eau Gallie” lo, these many years ago.

        I grew up thinking it was “Hog Alley”….Fl. west coast joke….

      • October 7, 2015 at 6:21 am

        Damn Chris, it’s not like you were asking them to bake a cake or a pizza, eh? What makes them think they have the right, just because you’re a white, sane, cisgendered male?
        Facists do what they do.

      • October 7, 2015 at 8:31 am

        Eau Gallie ain’t it’s own town anymore? I did not know that…and some of the fiercely independent old-line FL rednecks would be mightily pissed to hear it.

        But thanks for naming names Chris, I’m sure they must read your work and this is to let them know their support and courage in this world of PC idiocy will be rewarded when I need biz work done.

  • October 6, 2015 at 10:22 pm

    Is there anything they cannot do?

    Hmm, Sam’s looking a little bit round in the belly.
    Is there a new DD resident under construction?

    • October 7, 2015 at 12:04 pm

      I think the term is “Reubenesque”, Pam. While my father was fond of saying “there is no such thing as an ugly woman, some are merely prettier than others” (he died before Janet Reno made the news), many of us older gentlemen shy from the anorexic look that seemed to be popular for a while.

      That “rounded belly” may cover a delightful addition to DBD, but is pleasing in and of itself as it completes the vision of beauty that is Sam. Merci beaucoup, Chris.

    Comcast, in my area, blocks DBD. Still receive by email and use comments on Verizon 4G.

    • October 7, 2015 at 6:46 am

      That would be considered here an “Intolerable Act” and result in some musket ball traffic. Who appointed them censors?

    Usually see an abrasion over medial to mid left clavicle and maybe left side neck from shoulder belt in rollover of driver, opposite on passenger. Often have glitter effect of safty glass particles everywhere. Need to feel for pain in head, neck, spine, back, ribs, abdomen, extremities.

  • October 7, 2015 at 2:36 am

    Yes Sam is definitely looking up.

  • October 7, 2015 at 4:58 am

    There will be various medical care involved, thank you for the both of them being on their feet!

    Okay, makes sense for Damon to be keeping tabs.
    But is that an abrasion/bruise on Sam’s left side?

    • October 7, 2015 at 8:02 am

      Lower left torso below ribcage. In a rollover or side impact, the driver often gets that from being slammed into the driver’s-side door, specifically the armrest. The front-seat passenger often gets a similar abrasion/impact trauma on the lower right torso.

      Safety belts and harnesses, even on very late-model cars, are designed to keep the passengers from being thrown forward in a front or rear impact. They really don’t have any provision for preventing abrupt side-to-side movement.

      Some late model cars have side airbags in the upper door panel to prevent such a side impact. The trouble is, the bags often have powerful enough explosive inflation to inflict bruising damage themselves.

    Another day by day battle in the war that looks like it will be survived, so as to take on the next day.

  • October 7, 2015 at 9:48 am

    As to the accident dynamics. Most side impact, roll over accident fatalities are from the neck being broken. Head/neck is designed for front to rear rotation not side to side with a twist. Tumbling roll overs do that. Maybe the lack of upper torso restraints allowed for enough lateral displacement to mitigate head excursion. I’d still bet on spleen involvement though.

    I am interested in the companies that refuse to work with DBD…I’d hate to be doing business with companies that censor us.

    • October 7, 2015 at 12:56 pm

      Same thought…

    • October 7, 2015 at 8:28 pm

    Thanks, Chris.
    Now we know that both Zed and Sam are at least semi-alive and healthy, and that their whereabouts are known, and that rescue will soon be arriving.

    My pulse and respiration can now go down.

    After the rescue and recuperation, next on the agenda, reparations and revenge.

    Indeed, one can catch at least a bit of a breath. Both alive, only a small amount of physical damage as far as we can tell at this point. Now, let’s see some payback.

        Chris, check my name on my e-mail account. I disagree with you that your pronunciation is the only possible. FYI I am a recognized tube drainer for the OCG. She never called them that. If you check my name on my e-mail address, my name lends itself to another pronunciation. As an inside joke, my sister went through school with the adjetive “big.” Please do not pass on.

  • October 7, 2015 at 2:09 pm

    Love to see some of your thinking on how to enforce “posse committus(sp?)’ on various surveillance drones operated by U.S. military over the USA in peace time– Just about all Statists have wet dreams about using drones to spy on Everyone with out any warrants etc…

    We don’t want to end up like London with a CCTV on every corner.

    • October 7, 2015 at 4:26 pm
      B Woodman

      Easier then one might think today. If you browse through any number of web sites, eventually you will come across one or more web ads for relatively high powered lasers, anywhere from 1/4W up to I think I’ve seen 2W. And in SUCH a variety of pretty colors. ANd not that expensive. What do you think think a high powered laser would do to all those high priced high tech optics on a military drone? Hmmmm?

      Now, if you just want to make it so that you yourself aren’t picked up very easily on a gubberment ground surveillance camera system, see if you can find an IR LED strip (or make one?), attach a convenient battery power setup, attach to a hat, and walk down the street. The IR LED will cause the camera system to “flare” and blank out, like pointing it at the sun.

      The lasers are real time, now, and can be purchased.
      The IR LED hatband hasn’t been built yet, but it is theoretically doable and workable. I just haven’t had the time or money to do the search and research to find the materials and work up a test model.

      • October 7, 2015 at 4:51 pm

        Awesome idea…. Have you seen the hats at Home Depot, which have LEDs in the brim?
        How hard would it be to swap one type of LED for another…? 🙂
        Thanks for that thought!

      • October 7, 2015 at 8:25 pm

        Great idea! Will make it much easier for the satellite intelligence to keep track of you. Normal people don’t walk about with such things on their heads. Ergo, they are attention getters. Someday, you dudes may figure out how to hide in plain sight.

    • October 7, 2015 at 4:50 pm

      At this point, the only method is to “deal with” the people.
      Statist + steamroller, if you get the idea… Start executing.

      We used to make lawyer jokes. But we never executed.
      Now we have all sorts of idiot Clovers (authoritarian statists) and a shortage of bullets.
      (Recall the four boxes: Soap box, freedom of press; jury box, freedom to nullify laws; ballot box, freedom to vote the bums out; cartridge box, to “remind” them in no uncertain terms to whom they answer. They’ve gained control of the first three: Google is censoring content, for example, exclusively on conservative (note small c) sites. CONservative sites, the controlled opposition, those are mostly fine. Real conservatives are censored, and given that Google, Facebook, etc are all in bed with Uncle Sam, it’s an unofficial arm of government – de facto censorship, and no viable alternative; plus, it’s a dodge on the meaning of the word. Printing things costs money, including on the web. If you’re a propagandist, you spend money to dominate the space; at a certain size, you’re inescapable – and it’s your business. Crowding out the smaller individuals. Selling people’s data to ensure more propaganda in the form of advertising floods the senses. And buying influence with politicians. So, no soap box.
      Controlling the elections is simple, per above, same influence, only more players; same scheme, pay for play. Remember, Russia had free elections, too – the candidates were what was controlled, and who counted the votes was what mattered… So stuff the ballot box.
      Jury box, well – nullification is not only rarely if ever mentioned, and not taught much these days; it is PROSECUTED. Jurors are charged with obstruction, more than one case out there, even though the deliberations are supposed to be private and sealed. So, what technically should be jury tampering by the persecution (no typo) is in fact legalized.

      Leaving us the only true means of ever resisting tyranny, the cartridge box.
      We are LONG overdue for correcting these SOBs. Born in NJ, 1975, if Americans had balls, we’d have blood in the streets by now. But civil people are polite and reasonable. We are dealing with psychopaths. You do not reason with a rabid dog, you do not debate the finer points of law – you kill it.
      We need to do the same. Those on the take outnumber us, the police are becoming the standing army we were warned about, their ranks swell with the low-IQ – high IQ is a reason for rejection, per court cases; and politicians enter the arena wealthy, and leave to become fabulously rich, with the revolving door between regulatory agencies and their corresponding industries, or “speaking engagements” and such for Senators, Representatives, even Governors… While the “commoners” try to keep up with paying debt with inflated dollars, and the prices keep going up – but the real wages haven’t changed since I was born, in terms of purchasing power.

      Per CCTV, look how the body cams and dash cams mysteriously “malfunction” so often. Now, those officers live among us. the Praetorians we COULD enforce justice on. (I live in Massachusetts right now. Believe it or not, I know where 4 officers are…. But there’s no reason to do anything, probably because the state itself is actually bleeding people dry, rather than the police issuing road taxes or abusing the law. But I digress. Point is, there’s no reason to incite here. No reason to harm those who aren’t doing evil. Jersey was a different venue… But what will they do when it’s simply, “see a uniform, assume it’s the enemy”?

      What does EVERY authoritarian do when challenged…?

      It’s not as bad as it can get, by any means, but it won’t actually change until people are no longer fat and happy…
      Or, it won’t EVER happen, as the chip (ingestible now, not just implantable; used for birth control by modulating women’s hormones, they see diabetics as also getting this technology soon. But it could also pump out anti-depressants, or depressants…. Serotonin when Chairman Clinton is on the tube; a substance to induce fits or nausea when seeing Trump, perhaps. Or Bush, or whomever – the name doesn’t matter, follow the concept. They’ve already blocked real conservatives from getting elected….
      Imagine, instead, that you wake up every morning, and are sickened by your own (privileged, CIS-gendered, white) reflection? doubled if male, probably…

      We’re all too close, because we don’t hold the bastards accountable.
      E.G.: Clinton. Bush (I or II). Gore. Carter. Edwards. Obama. Reid. Feinstein. Rush. Byrd. Whitman. Keen. Etc. It’s an endless list, because none of the Elite (including Koch, Soros, et al) ever face justice.
      It’s the “Just Us” system.

      And to bring it around a little more, confirming the ouroborus of government: the drones are ALREADY here, ALREADY spying on us without warrants, AND it has been ruled Constitutional by the courts for the police to use radar to image the entire house and see where you are… But if you record the pigs, they’ll arrest you, destroy your property, possibly kill your pet (dog), and that’s all A-OK.

      We ALREADY live in Lincoln’s “iron fist in the velvet glove.”
      We just need to wake up to it, cinch the belt tight, and do what MUST be done. We do it sooner or later; sooner results in less damage and bloodshed. It’s already too late for “sooner” though…

      The statists are orgasmic at the thought of resistance, too. The “Good Guys” (statists) will win… [assuming we allow them to act first, such as by registering weapons, allowing perversions of the language, such as “driving” means something OTHER than “engaging in commerce’; etc. and, most importantly, ALLOWING THEM TO INDOCTRINATE OUR CHILDREN IN SCHOOLS AND ENTERTAINMENTS while feeding us poisons. Modern day Bread and Circuses. ]

      Anyway – /rant.
      The only way to enforce posse comitatus is to engage the Militia, and sweep down to DC, and mow down anything even remotely attached to FedGov.

      Which of course makes us anarchists, fringe wackos, ter’rists, etc.
      But the only way to win a rigged Game…? Is not to play.

        You may want to study “4GW”, Fourth Generation Warfare, basically and simply, you DON’T kill the leadership, you kill and/or nullify the seconds-in-command, those that would pass down the leader’s wishes and commands to the lower levels to become policy and be carried out. And the same to anyone that steps in to take the “deposed” (decomposed?) second’s place, call them what they will (a rose by any other name. . . ). Accomplishes two things (among others), it disconnects the upper from the lower; it leaves the leadership frustrated because his commands aren’t being carried out; it leaves the lower levels “rudderless”, with no commands to follow, stalling in circles.
