It’s never been clear where she grew up. chris muir Jun 06 2020 at 3:33 pm From Zed. Pamela Jun 06 2020 at 12:15 am Hmm. So what size tool.. JTC Jun 06 2020 at 12:28 am What size? Big ‘n brassy for this job, come in pairs. 😉 pyrodice Jun 06 2020 at 1:02 am usually in the range of 8 to 10mm in diameter, but the length can be over a mile, with a skilled operator. Too Tall Jun 06 2020 at 1:18 am 12.7 x 99 mm (.50 cal BMG). Range in excess of 2 miles, limited by curvature of the earth to less than 3 miles. Personal preference for the Barrett brand. Ronnie Barrett and his colleagues in Tennessee know how to build superb tools. Bill G Jun 06 2020 at 4:37 am Grin and Barrett! Wood Jun 06 2020 at 8:13 am Go Barrett! I wish all the other firearms manufacturers would get onboard. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/836082/posts Punta Gorda Jun 06 2020 at 9:39 am “Bravo” PaulS Jun 06 2020 at 10:09 am Almost 18 years ago, but still good to see again. Too Tall Jun 06 2020 at 12:23 am The Instruction Manual is easy to read, and extremely difficult to execute. I’m sure Pamela, Polly Cy, and the other fair ladies of DBD truly appreciate the first panel, but it reminds me I’ve got to get back in the gym. Sam is correct about one thing in the second panel. Among the tools required is a large pair of large, hardened, metallic, ones in complete working order. Soi Bois need not apply. Peregrine John Jun 07 2020 at 12:01 am Back and shoulder work, for the win. Yeah, likewise. Henry Jun 06 2020 at 12:29 am Larry Correia explains precisely why the guys with the tools aren’t volunteering for this job: https://www.facebook.com/larry.correia/posts/4131113506899547 eon Jun 06 2020 at 3:35 am Exactly. We gun owners are supposed to go to bat for the very people who want to kill us and eat us with fava beans and a nice Chianti? I might add that in their support for the rioters and looters, the advocates of “reasonable gun control”, who talk about “public safety”, “trust the police”, “the 2nd Amendment is outdated”, “the Constitution is a living document”, and of course “do it for the children!” are showing their true colors. They hate the police, they love the criminals, they want chaos and destruction, and in their Utopia everybody else would be defenseless and at their mercy. Which is nonexistent, as they have proven over and over again. So, fuck that shit. And to Hell with them. They’ve made their bed, they can fucking lie in it. Alone. Or to put it in terms I learned at the Patrol Academy; Why in the Nine Hells of Valeria would Civilization want to come to the rescue of Boskone? clear ether eon MasterDiver Jun 06 2020 at 7:44 am One Star Trek episode put it MOST succinctly: “How can you protect someone who is trying to destroy you?” Zar Belk! cmblake6 Jun 06 2020 at 10:21 am And that would be a bingo. steveb919 Jun 06 2020 at 4:31 am Good take on the Libs in that article. steveb919 Jun 06 2020 at 4:34 am posted wrong this was to Henry. Wood Jun 06 2020 at 8:38 am That was on point. Why do the left think we’d ever fight on their behalf? Fix what you broke your damn selves. John Jun 06 2020 at 12:07 pm The answer to that question is simple. They think people who abide by the Law on principle are Patsies, because, of course, they have no principles themselves. It’s actually a good general description of a Democrat. Bill G Jun 06 2020 at 4:45 am Above all, for the sake of maintaining the message, do not point out that these places with the “baked in racism” have been run by democrats for decades. Wood Jun 06 2020 at 8:40 am They’ve been run down by the dems… John Jun 06 2020 at 12:10 pm It is part and parcel of the Democrat Plantation System. Promise them delivery from their misery in exchange for their votes and then cook up any excuse for not delivering. The Duck Hunter Jun 06 2020 at 8:47 am The instruction manual is Article 5 which shows the states how to take control back from a bloated, power hungry Federal Government by having a Constitutional Convention. The trick here is get 34 of the states to agree to have one. Then we can turn being a politician back into a civic duty instead of a career choice. Set some term limits. Get Rid of the IRS by enacting the FairTax. Make the medical benefits they have available to the people. A corrupt Government has educated our youth. This new (and last couple of) generations have been so indoctrinated, that they don’t see the problem. They have been raised to think the Progressive way of life is good. From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs. That the Capitalist free market is bad. They want the people and the State Governments thinking that they have to depend on the Federal Government to support them in order to function. The liberals are all screaming about a problem of race and color inciting people to riot at protests when it is the Federal Government that has created that very same problem of race and color. And it is the Fed who maintains it as a way of keeping their political power. They continuously push the masses to look for and see all the differences, instead of governing in a way that looks for the similarities. But I am just preaching to the choir here. JTC Jun 06 2020 at 9:12 am Undisputed accuracy as to the disease DuckHunter, but terrible and fraught suggestions for the cure. A ConCon would be the opening in the granite wall of the Constitution they have been looking for, and the “FairTax” is both a sieve for corruption and a final nail in the coffin of small business. John Jun 06 2020 at 12:21 pm I concur. We must only step on the path to a Constitutional Convention after long, well considered and deliberate rational debate, but I fear “rational debate” is no longer practiced seriously simply because the politicians who determine the school curricula have systematically eliminated critical thinking in favor of establishing a gullible electorate. And guess what we’ve got? DCE Jun 06 2020 at 12:23 pm You are assuming that every amendment proposed at a Con Con will be ratified by 38 states. The stupid ones aren’t even likely to make it out of the Con Con. The marginally stupid ones aren’t likely to get the 38 states they need to ratify. If they’re even slightly smart, they will put a time limit on ratification. interventor Jun 06 2020 at 12:41 pm I suspect Congress might be friendly towards passing amendments such as time limits for their sorry selves, if faced with the real probability of a Constitutional Convention. JTC Jun 06 2020 at 1:16 pm No Sir. I am *presuming* that the stupid ones will overwhelm to the extent of gridlock dragging out for years* with the ever-present danger that enough stupid ones representing an electorate that is already incredibly stupid/beholden and could very easily become overwhelmingly so in 38 states. Guaranteed cost vs. possible but very unlikely benefit analysis says no fucking way. *”…slightly smart…”? Who the hell are we talking about here? These yahoos can’t come close to doing their job now, can you imagine what they could do with a prize like the Constitution when if administered with truth serum they would ACROSS THE BOARD admit to either their hatred of it or their conviction that they can fix it? See NFW above. Kafiroon Jun 06 2020 at 9:22 am Considering all the pandering we see out of all the Democrat/Prog/Media to racism, “protests”, plundering, and violence including killing: They would hijack a Constitutional Convention in an instant and we would come out as North Korea. Let them try to overtake the country. Not give it to them. peter gibbons Jun 06 2020 at 11:19 am On Edge browser I get comments but no donation level panel. On Chrome, I get the donation level panel but no comments. FYI epador Jun 06 2020 at 12:17 pm It’s D[byD]-Day. The check is in the mail. chris muir Jun 06 2020 at 2:08 pm (rubbing hands together in a Running Dog Capitalist Way) epador Jun 06 2020 at 9:07 pm Not with alcohol gel? JTC Jun 06 2020 at 12:26 pm “Progressives want Social Justice. They’re about to get it.” Quit that whining Sam…it is out-of-character, unbecoming, and unnecessary if you listened to your husband’s statement above. And the Big Brass Ones? Well they hang around in pairs until called to active duty to come to the aid of their Country…or their Woman. Thinking she doesn’t need Zed to handle some of those tools for her, as she has proven pretty capable physically and mentally to handle most firearms and other “rifles” too. Not sure about that .50 though, fired a beautiful Barrett twice thanks to a friend; man that damn thing hurts without secondary bracing. Fun as hell though and I hit a blow up target with one round at about 800 yards. Not bad for an old guy with bad shoulders. cb Jun 06 2020 at 1:42 pm Just trying to get that ‘social justice’: http://ripleyporch.blogspot.com/2020/06/the-fake-old-dude.html JTC Jun 06 2020 at 2:18 pm Another day, another case of too much wordy blather by JTC. Oh well. Anyway their big solution to the myth of the extent of police brutality and racism? “Defund” the police. You know, fire the cops, and replace them with administrative rules and regulations. That’ll fix this whole thing, just get rid of these racist murderous pigs and everything will be all right. Loudest voice for this is in Minneapolis from the mayor and council members there, and you know the media and peeps in the street think it’s a great idea. Not sure about the actual citizens and biz districts but they themselves asked for this shit and as Zed warns, they are about to get it. That city is 60% white with a popo pop. of 80% white, and a black population of 18% with cops at 8%. No wonder they want to start here; dump these white boys without hurting many brothers, so we can replace it with something good after we thin out this herd of virtuous sheep. Good luck with that there in St. Olaf, you buncha Rose Nylund wannabes. It’ll be a great model for national rollout. JTC Jun 06 2020 at 2:49 pm Sorry not the mayor but the council and other tokens installed after their last blowup. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/cities-ask-if-its-time-to-defund-police-and-reimagine-public-safety/ar-BB156BUO?li=BBnb7Kz East to “reimagine public safety” for them if they do this shit. Talk about putting foxes (panthers? Heh.) in charge of the chickens. John M. Jun 06 2020 at 3:32 pm One of the loudest voices demanding “Disbanding the Police” is our ‘good friend’ Ilhan Omar… Let me guess who she would have take the place of the police! DogByte6RER Jun 06 2020 at 8:53 pm Yes “reimagine” public safety in cities. Reimagine sounds like an ode to that dead Marxist hippie John Lennon and his pathetic song “Imagine.” I vaguely remember a gaggle of celebutards singing this song online in the early days of the CCP Virus shutdown. Perhaps the rioting, looting, mayhem and burning have a direct correlation to that stupid celebutard video a few months ago … John M. Jun 06 2020 at 3:36 pm I swear – for the last couple of days, Sam sounds more like Skye than herself… one begins to wonder if this is really Jo in disguise playing “Devil’s Advocate!” Pamela Jun 06 2020 at 4:36 pm Hmm, wonder how fast the Get Rid of the Police crowd and replace them with our friends and family plan of graft and corruption would decide to not commit suicide should ALL the Insurance Companies tell the various Cities that plan or speak of doing that plan would cause them to CANCEL EVERY POLICY for all persons and businesses plus Governments for not making sure that the People and Properties were properly and legally protected by well trained Sworn Officers of the Law. You think pitch forks, torches and being tossed out of office should happen right quick? Kafiroon Jun 06 2020 at 11:23 pm Excellent Idea! They would respond in a heartbeat to Insurance Co. requirements/demands. Reply Comment Name * Email * Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
