Day By Day


  • Too Tall

    DC’s Finest (in)action.

  • Kafiroon

    Looking at the belly diameter of those Whatevers in DC, they must cause the local donut stores to sell out before noon.
    Some of the old knights used to have a jib crane to lift them up and it sure looks like those boys could use one.

    • Oldarmourer

      A ‘knight in armour’ was surprisingly agile, moreso than even a modern soldier in his equipment…

      Having worn ‘modern’ response gear, I think the designers could have taken a few lessons from the armourers of old

      • interventor

        However, that old armor could not stop bullets. Until, the New Model Army’s armor, during the English Civil War.

        • Oldarmourer

          So they stopped wearing armour entirely, resulting in massive casualties to unarmoured troops up until very recently. When plate mail was first used, there weren’t any firearms to speak of in use, hence the part about bullets piercing it was of absolutely no concern to the wearer. It stopped most arrows which allowed a wearer to get close enough for melee which is what it was designed for and it performed quite adequately. The ‘tip the turtle’ image of a knight in armour is pretty much the product of a comedic artisty, and cranes were never used to hoist someone into a saddle, a mounting block maybe but that’s about it and you could still see mounting blocks along city streetsides in the US until well into the 20th century.

          The point is, you use what works but sometimes you can use a little too much of it. Soldiers and Officers today get to lug around far more gear than they need to do the actual job, there are some intersting studies on ‘the soldier’s load’ and a modern troop in the field carries far more than a WW2, WW1, Civil War, or even medieval one. So much for ‘progress’

      • Punta Gorda

        MSA rig. Fairly heavy.

        • Oldarmourer

          Feeds off human sweat…
          Spent many an hour in SCBA, hated every one 😉
          The fun part is falling asleep wearing it and waking up from a weird dream about bells when the ‘low air’ alarm goes off…

          • Oldarmourer

            The new ones have flashing lights and beep if you stop moving for more than a few seconds, good for most purposes, not so good for some.

  • Pamela

    Looks like a bloated Tick

  • Henry

    Bidi, Bidi, Bidi, Bidi, Bidi, That sucks, Buck!

    • Malatrope

      Nice Buck Rogers reference, Henry!

  • NotYetInACamp

    That would be a fate worse than a post turtle.
    I wonder if them FBIbois would take advantage of a properly positioned for entrance and undesired use Capitol Police Boy Knights.

    • Kafiroon

      I don’t know about JTC on that, but I would greatly appreciate you not swearing.
      EX-Frozen Tundra

      • Too Tall

        Snow is definitely a four letter word.

        • DCE

          But without it we can’t go skiing, sledding, or snowmobiling! That’s what we do in the winter up here in New Hampshire. We even make money from it when folks from away – usually from warmer climes – come here to experience the 3 S’s. (No, NOT the Shoot, Shovel, Shut Up version. We save that for the warmer weather months when the ground’s not frozen.)

          • interventor

            Well, Vermont has been called New Hampshire’s evil twin.

          • JTC


            And just down the road from the Maineiacs and Massholes, the Hamsters are surrounded!
            All the more reason to join the Confederation…

    • JTC

      @Henry, a former inter tubes acquaintance turned semi-famous writer is there, calls it Upper Cryogenica. Sounds like a fun break from the hotbox of Fla…

      Problem is, nobody actually gives a fuck about the Live Free or Die State. Lots of folks in various states have called for a break…TEXIT, FLEXIT, CALEXIT etc…but just scattered and sporadic.

      But the most important thing about the CRA is the full name, “The Confederation of Signatories to The Constitutional Republic of America”…The CRA.

      It’s a nation, not so much geographically aligned as with philosophical, political, and most importantly Constitutional ties. New Hamsters are surely welcome members and assets to the Cinfederation!

      • «scattered and sporadic», yes!
        A serious conflict, shooting or not, can only happen between power groups. Plucky random rebels who win exist only in propaganda… for obvious purpose, and another obvious purpose.
        But there are no solid power groups able and willing to oppose “the Cathedral” (except perhaps Chinese “brothers”, for whom they didn’t outlive usefulness yet). Those that form were “converged” or destroyed, one way or another.
        Which is why an actual auto-coup in January was utterly impossible. To the point where the formal sovereign Supreme Court informally yet clearly capitulated to a bunch of thoroughly discredited media parrots rather than getting bogged in this mess.

    • steveb919

      I can’t believe that someone in New Jersey brought this up. You go dude.

      • Henry

        Too many saguaros and roadrunners in my back yard for New Jersey, my friend!

  • NotYetInACamp

    As to the FBIbois, Capital Police, DOJ, and various Bidanistas recent attempt to entrap mo prisoners:
    Hey Batter. HEY BATTER! Hey batter batter batter. Hey Batter. HEY BATTER! Hey batter batter batter. … HEY BATTER, SWING!
    Whiffed another one, Eh? But you bois might have wanted to swing. And that poor land turtle is right there and so appealing boys. Matters not to you that it may be one of your own.
    The CP disabled land turtle asked ‘Please Don’t.’ The quality of mercy is not strained.

  • pyrodice

    Seems to me too many are rolling over far too easily.

  • Halley

    There, fixed it.

  • President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH Neanderthal B Woodman Domestic Violent Extremist SuperStraight

    Too too tempting to pick some of the weaponry, magazines, armament, and munitions off of the black armored turtle and just walk away.

    • Bill G

      Bwaa-haha-haaa! Eh, what’s that? No, we’re not stealing all these wonderful toys! We’re just helping this unfortunate chap by lightening the load that made him fall over!

  • Mike-SMO

    Worthless chuckle.

    It’s like James Bond. Licensed to kill. Not a good idea to help it up unless you are using lots of C-4. If it needs an assist, call the National Guard, if you can figure out which nation they belong to. It certainly isn’t the [Formerly] U.S.

    Remember that the Guard is only on loan to the several states. As soon as The Demented One fishes his phone out of his diaper, they are Federal Storm Troopers. Not something that you want close to your governor and legislature. They are just a threat. If there is a problem, I don’t expect that there’d be any difficulty getting contractors or volunteers to fill sand bags, or to field bulldozers. In our area, the Men in Black used private fishing boats to rescue those in deep water. If the “Democrats” came boiling out of the low lands, I suspect there would not be any assistance from the Federals of any color, uniform color that is.

  • DogByte6RER

    Kinda reminds of those Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from the 80’s era … except they’re a lot older now (like Dementia Joe) and the Ninja/martial arts thing leaves a lot to be desired.

    He looks like a turtle turned over on its back … might as well put him up on a post.

    Turtles on the half shell …

    • Kafiroon

      That reminds me of:
      “Help! I’ve fallen and can’t get up!”

      • ExNuke

        Isn’t that supposed to be “Help! I’ve fallen over and I can’t reach my beer!”?

        • steveb919


  • cb

    Those folks with that ‘terrorist flag’ will probably be accused of putting the Fed in that position and disappeared to solitary. Shoulda known better and stayed grey.

  • interventor

    I see that ISIS-K is taking responsibility for several IED attacks against the Taliban. In Afghanistan, the enemy of your enemy is probably also your enemy. Crabs in a bucket equipped with high explosives.

    • John

      Afghanistan has always been its own worst enemy.
      Had cooler and more knowledgeable heads prevailed we could have simply forgone the “Patriot Act” and used suitcases of cash to exterminate the likes of bin Laden at a far, far smaller price.
      This is something to keep in mind for the future. With the exception of their elite, Islam is dirt poor and blood thirsty. From now on we should insist on having our revenge served cold.

      • JTC

        Eff that. Air & sea attack to exterminate any that had anything to do with 9/11 and deter any more such plans or capabilities.

        Put our good men on the ground for Twenty Years! to be slaughtered and expend zillions of our dollars to “rebuild” that thousand year multiple self hating shithole? Sickening.

      • Henry

        Are you referring perhaps to
        “letters of marque and reprisal?”
        Otherwise known as
        the ORIGINAL, CONSTITUTIONAL patriot act?

  • jdow, I read and re-read your write up. It was a perfect summation of an irritable topic. I have no doubts that the vaccine saves lives by making people less sick. I think that is wonderful for all. I don’t believe anyone should be forced to take a vaccine. Even if it can “help” the general public.
    My single thorn that I cannot pull out, is that no one ever and I mean ever, talks about the % of the general public both in the USA and abroad that have had the virus and are carrying possibly a better form of immunity than that vaccine. If this was talked about non-politically I believe that we right now may be at a 60-75% vaccinated/carrying the anti-bodies. People carrying the anti-bodies are not adding to the problem. They were people that lived, some died and some survived.
    They made a choice or just happened to catch it and survive. I think this is GREAT FOR ALL OF US. But, all of the talk (NYC open card, vaccine travel cards, vaccine cards for employment) talk about the unvaccinated being the problem. Why doesn’t anyone combine the vaccinated with the general public carrying anti-bodies. I am now 9.5 months out from being infected and carrying substantial anti-bodies. My daughter is 11+ months out and is like a walking talking freight train of anti-bodies. Why can we not use us and talk about this in a real honest way that could actually aid the country and the world? This really is festering under the skin thorn that I cannot get over. Again this is just my opinion.. And again please keep posting information like you did, because it was great.

    • Sam

      Why can we not talk about it in a real honest way that could actually aid the country and the world?

      Because, this has never been about Covid-19 and protecting/curing the people. It has always been about control and power. Getting it, keeping it, expanding it.

    • JTC

      Herd immunity. It was already working so well that last year they had to tweak the virus to be more communicable so they could scare more folks to get the jab and turn into , superspreaders shedding that shit all around them hundreds of times more than untaxed. It’s a plan.

      Why? That’s why.

    • President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH Neanderthal B Woodman Domestic Violent Extremist SuperStraight

      I had the coof last October, and I’m sure I’m a walking, talking antibody factory.
      Now….where do I go to get antibody tested? And can it be put on one of those Vaxx cards for Karls and Karens to see?

  • Jim Smith

    Funny one. But wait…the next thing we know is the DC gestapo will be beating the shit out of the elderly couple. “They were white supremacist racists and deserved it,” will be the explanation.

  • Newshawk

    When I saw the video of the CP riot squad trotting out I immediately flashed back to Mel Brook’s “Robin Hood: Men in Tights” and the scene where Prince John calls for his Royal Guard. The only difference between the two scenes is the color of the “armor.”

  • Buck

    Internationally recognized suitcases of money to take out an individual or group by a nation is called a Letter of Marque and Reprisal. Allows those listed to cross international borders. England issued one in 1205. Congressman Ron Paul called for one after 9-11. Against Bin Laden, not Afghanistan. Coulda been different. He also proposed no welfare for noncitizens. I believe his district was the Texas Gulf Coast.

    • ExNuke

      In a lot of ways Ron Paul was a fruitcake but he was the ONLY one in government at any level who actually honored the Constitution.
