They don’t even understand

How much they hate themselves.

Take, as an example, the so called “War on Women” that folks on the right keep getting dumped on about. Classic Liberals such as myself would rather a free and open market place for ideas, employment and the like. All we believe needs to happen and what we argue for is removal of race and gender quotas, set-asides and other preferential treatment in the market of life.

And we supposedly hate women because we think this.

The left, on the other hand, when faced with an issue decide that women aren’t good enough and push them aside for a “more preferred” group. And there will be no dissent, or you hate women.

The New Definition of Women Writers

Several weeks ago at a gathering of Washington DC theater critics and artistic directors called “the Summit” a furor was started over the lack of work by women playwrights at major American theaters.  Asked to explain the reason for this well established low representation of plays by women, one artist director explained that there just aren’t enough talented women playwrights in the pipeline, and that it will take at least a decade to fix the problem.

Outrage ensued, and rightfully so.  It was an inane explanation, and one that is insulting to thousands of women playwrights who face real, institutional barriers to having their work produced.

As a result of the kerfuffle several theater artists around the country began compiling lists of accomplished women playwrights.  One blogger ironically called it a binder full of women for theater companies looking for gender diversity.  What has emerged from these efforts is an open source google document called “We Exist” listing over 1,200 playwrights, and its still growing.  But somehow, this list of women playwrights has transformed into a list of “female and/or trans* playwrights.” The asterisk after trans is not a footnote its a…well, I don’t understand exactly what it is, but it has replaced “trans” without an apostrophe as the appropriate nomenclature.  If your following the terms as they go by.

Titling a list about female playwrights “female playwrights” is now no longer good enough. It must also include men who think they are women trapped in men’s bodies, or you are hating on women.

I guess that my list of “Amazing Twats” will now have to include men as well.

So be it.

You probably haven’t heard of this one yet

But knowing the gun bigots, you will soon enough.

Gun Safety Laws Prevented Potential School Shooting Massacre In Connecticut

Bent on fame and exacting revenge on the people she believed responsible for her pain and isolation, police say Natalie Carpenter plotted with 19-year-old accomplice Peter Thulin to covertly sneak into Danbury High School, hold students and staff hostage and shoot “until everyone was dead.”

This very troubled young woman was living in a group home called Hope House because she was, to put it less than gently, fucked in the head. The staff at Hope House let her “come and go as she pleased.” Two of the comings and goings were to a local gun shop and to the local Wal-Mart. At both of these locations, she was turned down when she attempted to purchase a shotgun. The gun bigots are pointing to Connecticut’s new firearms laws as what stopped her from making her purchases.

She phoned in threats to the school which, along with a tip from one of her friends about her ranting about killing people at a school, led to her arrest. After her arrest, they searched her room and found her journal/diary with even more evidence of her fucked in the headness and took her away.

However, in this link, which repeats the tale above but is nowhere to be found at the gun bigot’s sites or the leftosphere news sites where I first picked up on the story, it mentions that she was refusing to take her maintenance medications. Even during this time, the Hope House staff let her keep her “come and go as she pleased” privileges.

Why?

Why did they not put her on some type of probation that limited her movements? Why did they not send her back to a state run mental facility for people who don’t take their medications? That is the job of a halfway house, isn’t it?

I’m sure we’ll never hear about who, if anyone, is going to be punished for letting this obviously dangerously mentally deranged adult citizen roam the streets when and where ever she wanted.

And because no one gets in trouble for letting the criminally insane loose on the streets, the rest of the residents of Connecticut have to deal with fewer civil rights than residents of other states with sane firearms laws.

And the gun bigots on the left and in the news (but I repeat myself) get to lie by omission and say that their new limits on civil rights “stopped a massacre”.

Because those are the only victories they get these days.

One more new arrival

At the end of last Friday’s post of a couple of the rifles I’ll be taking to Boomershoot, I posted a really crappy shot from my workbench of the new point and click device.

Santa stopped by and left me T/C Encore receiver. So I spent the time between then and New Years trying to decide what I was going to do. I need a .300 WinMag, but not the ammo cost right now. I would like a back up for my .308 Win & .22-250 bolties, but I didn’t want to play it quite that safe.

What’s a fella to do?

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

Hunter S. Thompson

I always liked HST, with a couple reservations. But I decided to go pro with this one.

Introducing my as yet unnamed T/C Encore rifle in .357Mag.

I figured that since I now have the wheelguns in the caliber, it was time for a rifle. So I ordered a barrel from Match Grade Machine that was a 24″ Heavy Contour and a 1-to-20 twist rate.

Now, don’t go thinking I’m going to be wasting this barrel’s life slinging factory pistol ammo out of it. I am working up a load that should leave the muzzle at around 2100-2200fps with 125gr projectiles.

I slapped an el cheapo Tasco 3-9x on top because the demands for this rifle for the foreseeable future won’t be much other than fun/experimental duty. I’ll likely recycle the Nikon 6-18x I have on my .22-250 onto once I buy the replacement after I’m back working anyway (which is why I got the high rings).

So far though, I’m posting 2″ groups @ 100yds with some factory Blazer 158gr stuff I had sitting around, so I’m happy for now. I do plan on having the hot load worked up by Boomershoot so I can ring some steel at the 385yd line on Friday/Saturday.

Sunday Funnies

There was only one good panel this week, so I’ve included some multi-panel stuff and an example of a practical joke you shouldn’t play in any area I’m in.

Updates and New Arrivals

A while back I made mention that I was going to update The Hun Bastard away from his kinder, gentler wood stock and Hensoldt wearing self to an MBR that would cause the Mothers Demanding Attention to fill their Depends undergarments.

It has been a while, but I think I’ve done well.

20140403_104045a  click to enlarge

Went to the range recently to get the 200yd zero on the Burris MTAC 3.5-10x. I still have the Hensoldt with all it’s accessories, if you know anybody who is looking for one.

I must say that the Magpul PRS2 stock is a must for the HK91 type rifles. The abusive recoil from the skinny buttstocks is gone. I think that once I get the heavy buffer put in there this beast will be a flat-out puppydog to shoot.

I don’t remember who made the handguard. Probably ATS. It is aluminum, doesn’t rattle, and I can attach stuff to it. Buy one if you like your handguard to do those things. I also bought a real-deal HK flash hider for the rifle because it works.

I’m probably going to fab up a spacer for the stock that’ll go between the stock and the recoil pad. While it does give the best amount of LOP from any of the available stocks, it still isn’t enough for my monkey arms and stupid-length neck. I’m also looking into fabbing up a replacement for the charging handle. Even the G36 replacement handle isn’t enough to get hamfist fingers under it with relative comfort during repeated use. It needs to be light because of the momentum it gets when you release it, and I’m not up to welding on aluminum just yet.

And as you can see, the ammo of the day was this can from The Ammoman.

The newest resident in my safe isn’t “new” in any way other than y’all ain’t seen it yet.

20140403_111522a click to enlarge

I bought the lower from SAA two Christmases ago before the price went “way” up after Newtown, and the IPK shortly thereafter before they disappeared. I put it together during the first week of my layoff last August and have been slowly building it with parts that came off the UPS truck. SAA upper, 16″ 1-in-8 barrel with a Smith Enterprises flash hider

The scope is also a Burris MTAC, this one is 1.5-6x because it was the same price as the 1-4x and my eyes aren’t going to get any better. The stock is a skeleton-type from ACE. As long as they keep making them, I’ll keep buying them. Great LOP and the cheekwelds aren’t cold.

About the only upgrade I plan on making is a hydraulic buffer. The one thing I really don’t like about AR’s is the “spring-zing” right under my face. The hydro-buffers don’t get rid of all of it, but they are an improvement.

So there you go. And both of these gentlemen will be joining me at Boomershoot, which is now less than a month away. Feel free to come see them in person.

Also for debut at Boomershoot, I’m drawing up a new type of “modular” shooting bench that I’ll be building in the next couple weeks (I bought the steel yesterday). I scare-quoted “modular” because I wanted to use the word “portable” instead. But sadly, it won’t really be light and portable. You’ll be able to be able to take it apart for easy transport, but once assembled it may take two people to move it around. You can switch from left, right, and center shooting positions and have a customizable shooting benchtop and seat.

You will likely also be able to park your truck on top of it. I don’t know way you would want to do that, but there you go.

UPDATE: Sneak peek. More pics and info next week.

This is your brain on Social Science courses

You know you’ve paid too much for your Liberal Arts degree when you start asking yourself and others this question.

What Can Educators Do To End White Supremacy In The Classroom?

The city of Madison hosted the 15th annual national White Privilege Conference last week at the Monona Terrace to discuss issues of white supremacy, social justice, education and the Tea Party. The MacIver Institute attended multiple breakout sessions and will be releasing our highlights over the next couple days.

Our first account comes from the breakout session titled Stories from the front lines of education: Confessions of a white, high school English teacher.

The session was facilitated by Kim Radersma, a former high school English teacher in California and Colorado. Radersma is currently working toward her Ph. D. in critical whiteness studies at Brock University in Ontario, Canada.

Radersma argued that teachers must fight against the oppressive structure in education and society. She said anyone who is going into teaching and education must be a political figure.

“Teaching is a political act, and you can’t choose to be neutral. You are either a pawn used to perpetuate a system of oppression or you are fighting against it,” Radersma said during the session. “And if you think you are neutral, you are a pawn.”

She said educators need to challenge the system, otherwise they are giving in to white supremacy.

The first step of her plan is likely to stop issuing grades to students. Just pass them through the system. The next is probably to stop requiring math, science and English courses for graduation. This way, no one will be able to point out that she’s an idiot.

Ignoring the Problem

Won’t make it go away.

Just as how they whine about “income inequality” while ignoring that they’re helping the gap widen with their policies, the left loves to ignore voter fraud and instead call those attempting to fix it “racists”.

House Speaker Thom Tillis (R-Mecklenburg) and Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) issued a joint statement Wednesday in response to more alarming evidence of voter error and fraud discovered by the North Carolina State Board of Elections.

Initial findings from the Board presented to the Joint Legislative Elections Oversight Committee today show:

765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election.

35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election.

155,692 voters with the same first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state – and the latest date of registration or voter activity did not take place within N.C.

These findings only take into account data from the 28 states who participated in the 2014 Interstate Crosscheck, leaving out potential voter error and fraud in the 22 states that do not participate in the consortium.

So the problem could easily be nearly twice as large.

I predict multiple stories on the MSNBC evening shows talking about “racist legislators” and the pointing our of any spelling errors in the above mentioned report.

Doing the right thing makes him the enemy

A few weeks ago, Sheriff Patrick Butler refused the FOIA request of two local newspapers for the names, addresses and other personal information on CCW holders in Ohio County, WV.

For this, the left declares him a criminal

Still not a peep from these same people about numerous denied FOIA’s by the Obama Administration. But stop them from publicly displaying the personal information of private, law-abiding citizens and you’re an enemy of their agenda.

Coming soon

To a nation near you

The neo-Marxists complaining in mainstream newspapers about how “Inheritance is an Injustice” and how “Inheritance creates Income Inequality, which is an Injustice”.

Because some people won’t work hard and sacrifice for something to hand down to their children, you shouldn’t be able to.

Words are wind, Paper is weak

Once again proving the left sees no difference between talking and doing, the Obama Administration is playing catch-and-release games with illegal immigrants. They are arrested and taken in front of a judge who orders them deported.

The illegal immigrants are then released back into the community with a stack of paperwork and forgotten about. If they leave, or if they stay, no one in the administration seems to care.

And for this, the President is call the “king of deportations” by those who advocate for amnesty and other on the left.

Except for folks like you and I. We get pissed of twice: Once when we find out he isn’t deporting criminals and a second time when we have to listen to leftists complain about how many people he has “deported”.
