Stating the Obvious

Over at FOX News Latino, we learn something that everyone with an IQ above room temperature knew would happen when Texas Governor Rick Perry gave the order.

Mexico concerned about Texas’ plan to deploy National Guard on border

Reading the article, it is clear that they are not afraid of 1000 TNG soldiers invading their country.

They are afraid that the illegal aliens passing through their country will actually be stopped from crossing the US border and stay in their country, which means they would have to take care of them.

Now tell me again why it is OK for them to put down stakes here and not there?

Outrage is their only option

The supporters of Initiative 594 here in Washington State, which would make background checks for private firearm sales mandatory, are losing in the polls.

So they do what every other leftist group does when they are losing: They discover something to be outraged about.

Jewish group says gun remarks ‘idiotic, simplistic and wrong’

The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle has called for the resignation of a National Rifle Association lobbyist who reportedly linked gun control to the Holocaust.

At a news conference Tuesday at the federation’s Seattle headquarters, President Keith Dvorchik said longtime NRA spokesman Brian Judy should resign for reportedly connecting a ballot initiative designed to reduce gun violence to Nazi policies that led to the Holocaust.

Dvorchik also demanded the national office of the NRA “make clear that it rejects his ignorant and unproductive dialogue.”

A report about Judy surfaced Monday on the liberal blog Horsesass.org. An audio clip on the blog plays over a still photo of the meeting and purportedly features Judy talking about Jews who support gun control.

The remarks reportedly were made last week at a gathering in Silverdale in opposition to Initiative 594, a measure on the ballot this fall that would expand background checks for gun purchases.

In the recording, a speaker references Nick Hanauer, a Seattle entrepreneur who has contributed more than $300,000 to an independent-expenditure group supporting I-594. Hanauer, who is Jewish, wrote recently in Politico about how his family fled Nazi Germany. The speaker on the recording references Hanauer’s piece:

“Now [Hanauer is] funding, he’s put half a million dollars, toward this policy, the same policy that led to his family getting run out of Germany by the Nazis. You know, it’s staggering to me, it’s just, you can’t make this stuff up. That these people, it’s like any Jewish people I meet who are anti-gun, I think, ‘Are you serious? Do you not remember what happened?’ And why did that happen? Because they registered guns and then they took them.”

Joe has some background on Brian Judy here.

His remarks were intelligent, complex and true. The exact opposite of how the Jewish Federation described them. That is how you can tell they’re faking the outrage.

In addition to the shame of having to feign outrage, some folks will remember that in 2006, the Seattle office of the Jewish Federation was shot up by one of those “instant jihadi’ types. The shooter shot six employees at the business with a pair of handguns which were legally purchased (meaning he went through everybackground check knwo to all the government agencies involved and waited through his mandatory three day waiting period).

Nothing in Initiative I-594 would have stopped him from doing what he did, yet they fully support passage of it anyway.

Today in Hoplophobia

He says he is a philosophy professor, but Jack Russell Weinstein seems like any other dimwitted hoplophobe to me.

In this video, Professor Weinstein lays out his philosophy on Open Carry:

Essentially, it is OK to steal from a restaurant (aka: leaving without paying your bill) if a person who is open carrying walks in. To make this morally “right” in his mind, you have to be afraid for your life. Whether or not you have to scream and flail your arms as you run out is, apparently, optional.

Likewise, if you are shopping at the supermarket and see a person open carrying, you are morally OK to bring your cart to a stop or set down your basket and walk out empty handed. All to prove a point to businesses that you won’t spend money there as long as they allow people to open carry.

His philosophy is as follows: The constabulary is OK to open carry, but citizens are not because “Those who conceal their guns are ready for trouble, but open-carry activists are looking for it.”

He is an unwitting advocate for concealed carry. That’s nice of him. I guess I should just be happy that he doesn’t want to take his shirt off and carry around Markley-ist signs.

 

 

Personally, if I were a resident of North Dakota, I’d make him prove his point and be sure to eat at the same place and the same time as he does.

Something Stupid This Way Comes

Premise: The Satanic Temple describes themselves as “a faith community that facilitates the communication and mobilization of politically aware Satanists, secularists, and advocates for individual liberty.”

To this end, they are planning on using the SCOTUS Hobby Lobby verdict to ask that Satanists not be held to follow any restrictions a particular state may place on abortion procedures.

What this has to do with forcing employers to pay for a couple morally objectionable forms of birth control (which the employee can still buy on their own) is beyond me. I can only guess that they think they can compare another person or group’s morality to their reported lack of any in a court of law.

No word on how long they believe it should take to gain “closely held belief” status. I’m going to take as to mean that instant conversion would suffice for their purposes. I think it should mean that members need to be within the temple for at least 9 months.

Cue the voice over: “Next on the 5 o’clock news: Satanists versus Christians!”

All PSH’d and Nowhere to Go

My goodness, yesterday was a full-on Markley Monday.

What with the Palmer v. D.C. decision over the weekend, the anti-civil rights left went all out yesterday. There were plenty of Wild West comparisons and name calling (yes, you and I are now being labelled as “ammosexuals”), but their mouths runneth over with multitudes of quotes involving male genitalia.

image70

(edited to remove the boob from the pic. An actual tit, not the anonymous boob holding the sign)

But my favorite post from them yesterday was about the decision handed down by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals that upheld Florida’s “Docs vs. Glocks” law which heavily fines doctors for prying into the personal lives of their patients and keeps them from badgering citizens with bullshit anti-gun slogans while they are wrapped in a paper-thin gown that ties in the back.

Mark Joseph Stern at Slate wrote “Doctors in Florida Cannot Legally Protect Children From Guns” and my first thoughts after reading that were “Is there a problem in Florida I am unaware of? Are firearms just getting up and walking around targeting kids?” And “Are Doctors not allowed to carry concealed?”

But then I realized that it was just more PSH and to let it go.

Egypt Helps in the Prairie Dog Hunt

I may not like most things abotu the current Egyptian government of the month, but this I do like

Egypt Army Destroys 13 More Gaza Tunnels

Egypt’s army said Sunday it has destroyed 13 more tunnels connecting the Sinai Peninsula to the Gaza Strip, taking to 1,639 the overall number it has laid waste to.

Cairo has poured troops into the peninsula to counter a rising insurgency since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi last year, and its security operation involves the destruction of these tunnels.

The Palestinian militant group Hamas, which is the main power in Gaza, reportedly uses the tunnels to smuggle arms, food and money into the blockaded coastal enclave.

Because you know if Morsi was still in charge there, they’d be digging tunnels for Hamas.

The last one for a bit

Table #7 was brought into the world this weekend

20140727_184521a

More wrenches, more shaped steel, spider gears, motorcycle transmission gears, New Process transfer case gears, BMW timing chain gears, and more nuts and bolts that you can shake a stick at (does anyone really shake sticks at things these days anymore even?).

The chain surround is a double link timing chain from a GM V6. T-case chain is becoming difficult to acquire and I happened upon enough timing chain to make a pair of tables. It is slightly narrower than t-case chain, but whereas t-case chain is a grey color, timing chain is quite easily polished to a shine. The leg is a GM DOHC V6 cam on top of a stack of t-case gears. The foot is another GM Vortec 5.7L V8 flexplate. As is usual with the square tables, the center is a t-case planetary gear, so the top spins.

I have a special project coming in sometime this week that I’ll be posting about when it arrives. It is not a fun tale. Also, I’ve been getting requests for smaller items that don’t cost a lot. I figure I can turn out a bunch of smaller items in a day or over a weekend so, if I can knock the special project out before the end of the week, I’m going to spend next weekend whipping up things like this.

20140727_201622a

It was supposed to be a foot for a lightweight table made out of bicycle stuff, but the legs made of sprockets and chain were not strong enough for my liking. A friend requested something she could hang on her wall and I still had the foot and the top sitting around so this is now a “snowflake”. If she doesn’t like it on the wall, she can use it to set hot pans on because, although you can’t see it, there is a riser welded under the center sprocket.

Anyway, if’n you’re interested in the table, you know how to get a hold of me. It is the last one I have in inventory until I re-start production again in a few weeks. I’ll have a couple weeks off from school starting in the middle of August and I plan on working under the canopy daily. So we’ll see what spits out of my Millermatic nozzle then.

I DO still need to make bumpers for the Jeep…..

If you can’t trust them with Wikipedia

Why should we trust them to run the country?

Wikipedia Blocking Congress from editing Wikipedia

Wikipedia administrators have imposed a ban on page edits from computers at the US House of Representatives, following “persistent disruptive editing”.

The 10-day block comes after anonymous changes were made to entries on politicians and businesses, as well as events like the Kennedy assassination.

The biography of former US defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld was edited to say that he was an “alien lizard”.

One staffer said they were being banned for the “actions of two or three”.

Edits from computers using the IP address belonging to the House of Representatives have been banned before, following similar acts of vandalism.

Oh wait, we don’t trust them to run the country. And yet they do.

My Jeep is Hungry

But it will be denied the opportunity to eat because I spend to much time in King County where two of the larger municipalities already demand that people with few or no job skills be given $15 and hour.

Activists Vow To Occupy Fast-food Restaurants To Get Higher Pay

Activists and protesters seeking to pressure fast-food restaurants around the nation to give them $15 per hour minimum pay say they’ll do whatever it takes – including civil disobedience and occupying the facilities – to win their cause.

“I personally think we need to get more workers involved and shut these businesses down until they listen to us,” and maybe even occupy the restaurants, said Cherri Delisline, a 27-year-old single mother from Charleston, S.C., who has spent 10 years making $7.35 per hour at McDonald’s, The Associated Press reported.

If she has been employed at McDonalds for 10 years and is only making $0.10 above minimum wage, then she either needs to find a better place to work or do something to impress her boss. Personally, I’d do the former.

But back to my Jeep; so, if they “occupy the drive thru”, can I consider them obstacles and crawl them?
