    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 1/23/2018 | O Volk
    Henry offers three models, with the Octagon being the most visually striking of the lot. The fit of the metal and wood is tight, and the finish is even and well applied. A 22-inch blued octagonal barrel is installed on a brass receiver, with brass buttplate on a straight-grip stock of quality walnut completing the first impression. Weighing in at about 8 pounds, the rifle feels substantial without appearing heavy. For field carry, it comes with sling swivel studs already installed. The magazine tube holds four cartridges and loads from a port underneath, the same as Henry’s rimfire rifles. While...

    Saturday, January 20, 2018 Government Shuts Down, Nation Descends into Riots, Looting and Cannibalism Posted by Daniel Greenfield The United States of America (1787-2018) came to a swift and sudden end last night as the government shut down. The nation which had survived Pearl Harbor, the War of 1812 and Jimmy Carter ceased to exist. The savage population, which had only been kept in line through a policy of rigorous gun confiscations, food stamps and Green Energy programs unleashed its pent up rage in a spree of riots, looting and mass murder that had only previously been encountered in Somalia...

    Wow! You dont need to be even an honorary member of the tinfoil hat society to suspect conspiracies everywhere anymore: There is serious talk on Capitol Hill about the appointment of a second special counsel amid several new bombshell revelations swirling around the Trump/Russia probe. First, there are the allegations of shocking and substantial government surveillance abuses under President Obama outlined in the FISA abuse memo. Secondly, the FBI lost five months of key text messages between the anti-Trump/pro-Clinton FBI officials Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page. And now there's talk of a "secret society" of officials within the...

    Sunday, January 21, 2018 The Imaginary Hispanic Posted by Daniel Greenfield There are two statistics that explain the Democrat obsession with illegal immigration and open borders. 97% of immigrants in the appropriate grouping identify themselves as Hispanic, but by the fourth generation that number falls to half. Only 7% of immigrants describe themselves as Americans, but 56% in the third generation call themselves Americans. Even the use of Spanish is slowly declining. If a minority stops existing after a few generations, did it ever actually exist? The Democrats had abandoned their working class base to chase what they pretended was...

    ... "On The Right Side of History" did not get Trump wrong. That is why he calls himself "On The Right Side of History" because he is... In a string of 30 tweets, he laid it out. 1. For a couple weeks now, I've been saying that DACA is not a bargaining chip, it's a bait. In fact, you just saw who Trump used it to bait the Dems into a Banzai Charge on his most heavily fortified position. 2. Having been humiliated by Trump, the smarter Dems in congress, especially in the Senate are going to be hella wary...

    Politico ^ | January 22, 2018 | Daniel Strauss
    Emboldened by statewide victories last year in Virginia and Alabama, Democrats are setting their sights this fall on another Deep South prize once thought to be out of reach: Georgias governorship, a seat the party hasnt held in more than 15 years. The party has two major candidates with a lot in common: Stacey Abrams and Stacey Evans are both veterans of the Georgia state House. Both are running as unapologetic liberals who see a path to victory guided by tapping into black voters, whom they see as an electoral sleeping giant and courting suburban whites who usually vote...

    Not only were they poaching, the Deer was used as Eagle Bait This is straight up from Washington Dept Fish and Wildlife Police. Officer Bolton responded to assist a Klickitat County Sheriffs Deputy who had detained three juvenile tribal members near the Klickitat River with a loaded rifle in their vehicle. The deputy was planning to give a warning to the fifteen year old for the loaded rifle, but found that none of the occupants even had a drivers license. Fresh blood and deer hair was also found in the car. Officer Bolton and the deputy searched the area for...

    Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) - Tired of all this Winning yet? Part I Late last week, as it became increasingly apparent that the Democrats in the Senate were going to cause a shutdown of 14% of the federal government, various fake news media outlets carried reports predicting the stock market would tank on Monday if that were to happen. One clown on CNN or MSNBC, I forget which, predicted the Dow Jones would fall 1,300 points. He was apparently channeling Paul Krugman with that bit of hilarity. Of course, that did not happen. The Dow...

    After three days of government shutdown by the Democrats, a near extinction event (just kidding) nobody actually noticed, nor was affected by it, the GOP scored a major victory against the left, as they managed to gather sufficient DEM votes on Monday to pass a short term spending bill that will fund the Federal Government until February 8. Sixteen Democrats (probably seeking reelection in the mid-terms) joined Republican Senators Mike Lee of Utah and Rand Paul of Kentucky, and voted against the DEM filibuster on the short term spending bill with a crushing 81-18 vote.

    Late night I'm watching a movie on Amazon Prime -- "Vengeance a love story". It's typical Nicholas Cage material these days. Somewhere between junk and a good movie. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5460530/?ref_=nv_sr_1 It is about a vigilante cop drawn to a case that involved a single mother brutally gang raped in front of her 11 year old daughter. 1/3 into the movie at which we can consider the start of the second act. The daughter is alone in her house looking for her cat which has gone missing and eventually found hung on her front porch. I happened to notice that the 11...

    It rained in Chicagoland last night. That may not sound particularly exceptional, but its mid-January, and its been very cold lately; we usually get our precipitation in the form of nice fluffy snow this time of year. But it rained hard and that caused the night crawlers, gasping for breath, to climb out of the ground and slither onto our sidewalks and pavements, to escape drowning in the waterlogged soil. And we humans, being nice folks who never want to take another life without cause, watch our step, as we walk to and from our cars. We try...

    Reflections on Presidents and the Presidency, on Inauguration Day President George Washington was inaugurated on April 30, 1789, but not by choice. He had been in town, ready to take office, for weeks already but the newly-elected Congress took their time arriving, as the president, anxious to get started, had to cool his heels. They needed a quorum, to ratify the results of the electors, and to put together a republican response to the monarchial tradition of the formal coronation with all its pomp and circumstance to which the rest of the world was accustomed. But as much...

Democrats, in the form of Senator Chuck Schumer and now Representative Luis Gutierrez have indirectly given away Democrat fears. First, Senator Schumer came out of his Whitehouse meeting with President Trump, claiming that he had offered some compromise with the President on the wall.

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 21 Jan 2018 | John Semmens
    Assemblymen Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento) and Phil Ting (D-San Francisco) are pushing a measure aimed at confiscating half of the business tax cuts resulting from the federal Tax Cuts & Jobs Act for use by the state government. "Businesses have been exploiting the workers and ripping off customers for too long," Ting complained. "That Trump's tax cuts would now further reward them for their predatory behavior is unconscionable. Our measure would expropriate the expropriators and turn half of these unjust tax cuts over to the state for a more socially just redistribution." Ting said he is not concerned that his proposed...

  • War and Sex: The Power of Women in the Ancient Greek play Lysistrata

    01/22/2018 11:36:01 AM PST · by GoldenState_Rose · 11 replies
    For years men have waged war and, of course, sex is not a novel concept or construct. Lysistrata portrays women in a powerful role, namely in control of their sex and sex in general. They have authority over the men. When the absurdities of war have taken their men away, the women use sex as a weapon in order to obtain peace. By withholding sex, women come to essentially control their men. The men eventually succumb to the women and yield in their determination to carry out a war. This is interesting because in Ancient Greek tradition, the women are...
