Now that’s tight

Mad felling skillz, yo.

Personally, I would have moved the mobile home instead of take that chance.

And Mr. Completely will enjoy the tunage.

Ten Reasons I Am No Longer a Leftist

Boomershoot Buggy or All My Friends Have Diesels . . . Maybe I Should Too

I’d love to take this through downtown Ann Arbor and watch the all the Prius’s (Pria?) and Subies run for their lives.

(this sentiment was shamelessly shanghai’d from a comment in the linked article and relocated geographically to Michigan)

I might have to head out for Idaho a few days earlier, due to the max mph.

As is usual

Yet another table spouted from my welder this weekend.

20140720_182049a

(The usual “click to embiggen” nonsense here)

This table is all about wrenches. I found a bunch as an estate sale and scooped them all up and put a half-dozen or so of them in here. Anybody remember Montgomery Ward? There’s a wrench from one of their tool sets in there. There is also a threading die, a couple pieces of the ring around a flywheel and a well dressed tow hook. Usual planetary gear and transfer case chain surround.

The leg is a cam from a GM V6, along with 5 different gears from New Process transfer cases. The foot is a GM Vortec 5.7L V8 flexplate. All with two coats of clear for that “wet-look”. This one is available for purchase until further notice for the low-low price of $400 +shipping.

In other news, I got tired of running the Jeep’s battery down attempting to have music in the work area, so I pimped my welding table (the Jeep doesn’t have a battery problem, it has 700Watts worth of sound amplification).

A $20 garage sale shelf-top stereo plus some shelving made from scrap steel. There is also now a power strip mounted to the other side of the table that can be used for easy access to juice for it, or an angle grinder, or a dremel, or whatever else I may need that runs on 110V.

Lastly, I am tempted to say some very cruel and unusual things about a certain brown shipping company. However, I will wait to see if they hold to their promise and report on the topic later.

Personally

I have nothing against this form of punishment, provided it is carried out with due process as according to the American legal system.

Obviously, this wasn’t.

Philadelphia mosque leaders try to cut off man’s hand

Two men described as leaders of a Philadelphia mosque were accused of trying to cut off the hand of a suspected thief, whose wrist was sliced so deeply it required hospital treatment, police said on Friday.

The 46-year-old victim said two officials in the mosque accused him of stealing jars of money from the house of worship after morning prayers on Monday.

The officials, described in police reports as the mosque’s imam and amir, dragged the victim to the rear of the mosque, and attempted to chop off his hand with a machete, according to a police statement.

He sustained a severe laceration to his right wrist, and was transported to a nearby hospital by medics.

Officers served a search warrant on Thursday on the mosque, located in a house in the city’s Overbrook section, where they arrested Merv Mitchell, also known as Mabul Shoatz. They recovered a 2-foot-long machete from the scene.

The mosque’s imam, an unidentified 35-year-old male, has not yet been located, police said.

Nothing says “We were right to do this” like hiding from the police.

Sunday Funnies

It never ceases to amaze me when Israel has to move ground forces into Pali-controlled areas, that the brightest minds the left has to offer run their mouth and sound rather similar to the white supremacists they supposedly dislike.

It’s a mystery

How this ever made it to print

Detroit police chief gives credit to armed citizens for drop in crime

Fed up with crime, some armed Detroiters have developed itchy trigger-fingers — and Police Chief James Craig said lawbreakers are getting the message.

…..

The incident was the latest in a string of homeowners opening fire to defend themselves, although after a flurry of such shootings early this year, before Monday there hadn’t been a reported incident since May 4 — an indication that criminals are thinking twice about breaking into people’s houses, Craig said.

Detroit has experienced 37 percent fewer robberies in 2014 than during the same period last year, 22 percent fewer break-ins of businesses and homes, and 30 percent fewer carjackings. Craig attributed the drop to better police work and criminals being reluctant to prey on citizens who may be carrying guns.

“Criminals are getting the message that good Detroiters are armed and will use that weapon,” said Craig, who has repeatedly said he believes armed citizens deter crime. “I don’t want to take away from the good work our investigators are doing, but I think part of the drop in crime, and robberies in particular, is because criminals are thinking twice that citizens could be armed.

“I can’t say what specific percentage is caused by this, but there’s no question in my mind it has had an effect,” Craig said.

Familiarity is not the reason

A couple polls came out recently each showing that 40 or more percent of the Millennial Generation have a favorable view of socialism. Numerous bloggers and wonks took this info to mean that they had been brainwashed to believe that socialism was good.

Ends up that it was much more sinister than that:
Not only have they been taught that socialism is good, they have been been purposely shown a misrepresentation of what socialism is.

Recent polls have suggested that millennials are far more positive to socialism than older cohorts. For instance, the Pew Research Center found that 43 percent of 18-29 year olds had a positive reaction to the word socialism, compared to 33 percent of 30-49 year olds, 23 percent of 50-64 year olds, and 14% of 65+. The older you get the more you hate socialism.

But do young people even know what socialism means?

Perhaps not. A new Reason-Rupe report on millennials finds that young people are more favorable to the word “socialism” than a government-managed economy, even though the latter is lessinterventionist. Millennials don’t like government intervention in the economy when you spell it out precisely, rather than use vague terms like “socialism.”

In fact, a 2010 CBS/New York Times survey found that when Americans were asked to use their own words to define the word “socialism” millennials were the least able to do so. According to the survey, only 16 percent of millennials could define socialism as government ownership, or some variation thereof. In contrast, 30 percent of Americans over 30 could do the same (and 57% of tea partiers, incidentally).

You know the Tea Partiers. They’re the folks the media portrays as being “stupid”, in contrast to Millenials who are told they are the smartest generation ever!

By the way, from the first quoted paragraph, the reason you dislike socialism more as you get older is that, as you get older you tend to increase the number of gray hairs and aches and pains and also acquire a severe allergy to bullshit. Doctors haven’t been able to figure out why this is. Which is why we have philosphers.

Koch High: How The Koch Brothers Are Buying Their Way Into The Minds Of Public School Students

In the spring of 2012, Spenser Johnson, a junior at Highland Park High School in Topeka, Kansas, was unpacking his acoustic bass before orchestra practice when a sign caught his eye. “Do you want to make money?” it asked.

The poster encouraged the predominantly poor students at Highland Park to enroll in a new, yearlong course that would provide lessons in basic economic principles and practical instruction on starting a business. Students would receive generous financial incentives including startup capital and scholarships after graduation. The course would begin that fall. Johnson eagerly signed up.

In some ways, the class looked like a typical high school business course, taught in a Highland Park classroom by a Highland Park teacher. But it was actually run by Youth Entrepreneurs, a nonprofit group created and funded primarily by Charles G. Koch, the billionaire chairman of Koch Industries.

The official mission of Youth Entrepreneurs is to provide kids with “business and entrepreneurial education and experiences that help them prosper and become contributing members of society.” The underlying goal of the program, however, is to impart Koch’s radical free-market ideology to teenagers. In the last school year, the class reached more than 1,000 students across Kansas and Missouri.

Lesson plans and class materials obtained by The Huffington Post make the course’s message clear: The minimum wage hurts workers and slows economic growth. Low taxes and less regulation allow people to prosper. Public assistance harms the poor. Government, in short, is the enemy of liberty.

These are all things that the students would learn within the first year or so of being the owners of a small business. The program is just lettign them know of them ahead of time.

Also, I seriously doubt that the “lesson plans and class materials” actually say these self-evident truths explicitly. But I do not doubt one iota that they do talk about regulations and small business taxes, which anyone who writes for the HuffPo would probably equate to saying the government is the enemy of liberty.
