    Don’t save it, scrap it. Mostly done already. Let them have their spoils.

    Our new Republic awaits.

    The Constitutional Republic of America.

    Chris your blended realism thing is awesome in these mechanicals. Mechanic ain’t bad either.

    Illegitimate. And just ill.

    ‘Generation Last’? Ronald Reagan ~ “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.”

  • JTC

    They can wipe their nasty ass with their list.

    Let’s publicize a list of our own, The Commie List. It’s a long list and would be a powerful tool.

    McCarthy wasn’t wrong.

    • MadCat

      McCarthy has been proven correct many times over.

    If you don’t already know and are interested, a “pennywieght” is 1/20th of a Troy Ounce and a “Troy Pound” is 12 “Troy Ounces”. It matters if you are laying in precious metals (Gold, Silver, Platinum…) not the important ones, (Lead, Brass, Copper).

    • Eh, Wot?

      LOL ….. comforting to hear someone “Nuke out” an answer!

    • While I grew up with Troy among the old-line jewish metal merchants of Palm Beach County -and is by no means obsolete in that trade (my trade); if you buy a one troy ounce silver bar you get 31.1 grams of silver, not 28- it is irrelevant to Sam’s quote with a Brit monetary derivation meaning if you do a little you might as well do a lot. And hers quote is actually irrelevant to Zed’s and Franklin’s, meaning thrift is rewarded over time.

      As to those “important” precious metals; grains and grams (and drams in the case of black powder) are the universal language of propellants and finished projectiles, while the raw metals are mostly traded in our common method of avoirdupois; buy an ounce or a pound of copper and you’ll get 28 grams or 16 ounces.

      The saying “In for a penny, in for a pound” relates to English currency.

      • interventor

        As in pound sterling.

      • As stated, yes… “a Brit monetary derivation…”

    • Funny the words put in those mouths by white yankee elite writers would never have passed their lips in that real life place and time.

      Funnier still -and not a little ironic- that those words could be placed in the mouths of whites and conservatives today (but who would write that script?) and ring true, that the work and sacrifice of generations deserves our work and sacrifice now…and are getting scant.

      The *reverse* parallels of the CW to now are astonishing.

    We need to revive those Soviet Communism jokes from the Cold War and update them for our current times … Reagan loved them and he would frequently tell a few when he was POTUS.

    A few examples:

    Your mother is like Communism … she has no class and everybody shares her.

    Soviet factory worker to another Soviet factory worker … The Party pretends to pay us and we pretend to work.

    Q: If communism doesn’t work, then why do so many people still support it?
    A: Because they don’t work either.

    “What surprises me, American people don’t know we have comedy in Russia. We have comedians. They are there. They are dead, but they are there. It is very hard to do comedy in Soviet Union. You have to write out all your material, and you send it to Department of Jokes. I’m not making this up. They send it back to you censored. You have to stay to the script, you cannot improvise. If someone hackles you from the audience, you cannot say like ‘your mother wears army boots.’ Because she probably does, and she will hurt you. Good thing about doing comedy in Russia you have captured audience. They’re not going anywhere. You’ve got to be very selective, very careful of what jokes you say. If you say like ‘take my wife please,’ you go home, she’s gone.”

    Looks like it really was a Ford brake master cylinder Sam was workin’ on yesterday. Pre-power brake era, though. I remember both feet on that pedal wondering if it was gonna be a hard hit or just-in-time…

    • Kafiroon

      You think After rebuilding them as Sam was doing, do you think I would lie?

      • Kafiroon

        Oh yeah. That IS a vacuum power boost in the 1st. scene.

      • Pamela

        I remember sitting in my Dad’s car bleeding the brakes

    • I’m good with slamming on the brakes for everything that is actually going on, but what we need is to put the pedal to the metal for what we have to do and what has to happen if we are to survive…

      CRA Now!

    • CRA Press Secretary Candace Owens; how I would love to see her shred those talking heads of the media from the podium.

    I feels cheated. The mechanics that I have run into smell of old beer, cigars, and sweat and the only curves are at their beer-belly. Where’z the local DD Garage?

  • Shield Wall

    I’ll be Captain Obvious and say I miss what America used to be. That said, I think the best path out of many hard choices is to continue to Balkenize (Liberty State, State of Appalachia, State of Jefferson and many smaller counties and even neighborhoods, and let them grow through alliances and trade. Use the constitution as a guide, but until we do, it’s just a piece of magic paper where too many see their oath to uphold it as a joke.

  • Let’s see, based on the lunch break conversations at my last Guard Drill:

    -Question COVID measures–CHECK

    -Claim the 2020 election results were questionable–CHECK

    -Celebrate 9-11 anniversary and religious holidays–CHECK

    OK, call the Checkists, this 38-year veteran is a rabid and dangerous threat to the Administration and the People’s Republic, and must be made to disappear into the Gulag!

    This is what you get when you are ruled by a self-anointed elite’ raised on 1960s-70s New Age nonsense.

    “I’m OK- You’re OK” wasn’t “correct” in their minds. “Transactional analysis” fed their Ids but not their common sense.

    Their mantra today is “I’m Perfect- You’re A Deplorable Piece of S#!t”.

    Don’t expect them to change. They wouldn’t if they could.

      Ah the Intelligentsia that the Chi-Coms and Soviets purged from the planet. All talk, mostly no action and the closet thing they do to heavy lifting is adding a new case to their phone or opening a pack of fake meat.

    Ben Franklin, my favourite of the Founders. What I’d give to be able to show him around 2021…

      “In wine, there is wisdom. In beer, there is freedom. In water, there is bacteria.”

        I don’t know if Ben knew about one celled creatures at the time.

          “The problem with quotes found on the internet is that they are often not true.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

      • Love Old Ben; while along with most of the Framers he was a dedicated oenophile and there can be no doubt of his wisdom, not sure the wine was the source of it as I have seen much evidence to the contrary among his modern contemporaries…more a matter of personal constitution than of lubrication methinks.

        So I am unsure that in wine there is wisdom, but I can attest that “in vino veritas”…one’s words that may seem wise to the self under its influence may or may not be, but they are quite certain to be consciously or subconsciously true and/or revealing. Glad he didn’t add the 10-ft and bulletproof thing effect of the beer though; I’ve seen that one tested a couple times too, with predictable results.

        Always wondered if the mandatory cultivation of hemp in the colonies wasn’t about more than rope and paper, and it just seemed to be an early version of politically correct not to discuss its other properties in polite company…

        Back to the booze though; just have to get those swamp creatures drunk to get to their truth. Or at least what they have been told is their truth.

    • interventor

      Careful about old Ben. Rumored he seduced about half of the ladies in Louis VI’s court between the ages of 16 and 60. Who, in turn, encouraged the men in court to support the American cause.

  • Kafiroon

    Quote Time! Stole this from somewhere on the blogs during my lazy Saturday. Considering our past history and today.

    “the danger here is that America risks being seen as harmless as an enemy, and treacherous as a friend… It’s a very dangerous lesson to teach the planet.”
    Bernard Lewis

    • The planet can take care of itself, but few knew more about the muzbro than Lewis so allowing for poetic license we should take his words of warning to heart, as they and other Africans and Asians and Russkies and South Americans coming to believe the former will be a self-fulfilling prophecy, so yes, an end to the planet and all of its denizens.

      • John M.

        I believe the planet will go on – humankind? Not so much… my biggest fear is that, in taking ourselves out, we’ll do more damage than any asteroid, and it will take a LONG time for the planet to heal.
