    It actually helps that the Hillary campaign is pointing out that all these “Republicans” are voting for her. Every one of these globalist idiots is actually giving 1000s of Democrats permission to vote for Trump. People who have been voting Democrat their entire lives can say to themselves that the Republicans are against Trump so it is OK for me to vote for him.

  • .50 Cal Big Bore Airgun

    fireman15 to Cboldt

    I have got a good friend who is really into large caliber air rifles. He sells projectiles for them on eBay. He knew that I am into casting bullets, so when he got his first mold a few years ago he came over to my house and we did some casting. We used a soft lead with very few impurities so that the “pellets” would seal well while engaging in the rifling.

    He asked me for a chunk of 2x8. I thought he was going to attach it to one of the big trees behind my house, but he tossed it on the concrete floor of our airplane hangar and shot it with his air rifle. It made a loud whacking sound as the “pellet” split the 2x8. Fortunately it didn’t ricochet off the floor. I asked him to please never do something like that again.

    The projectile was about the same weight as you cast for a big handgun and leaves the end of the barrel at approximately the same velocity. It is a slightly different design from a typical handgun bullet. The rings that engage in the rifling were a little deeper. My guess is that it has pretty awesome “stopping power”. Definitely not something you should be shooting at a piece of wood on the floor!

    The velocities used are subsonic to keep the noise down and increase accuracy. My friend got into these big air rifles because he likes to target practice at his place without disturbing the neighbors. He uses scuba tanks to recharge the air storage cylinder on the gun.

    Our friend Fred is an Army Veteran in his 80s. He is an intellectual and still sharp as a tack. In 1969 he was assigned to the U S Army Seventh Corps in Stuttgart Germany as Chief of Plans. It was his duty to write plans for committing the Corps to battle, should the need arise, in North Africa and the Middle East.

    Fred has been studying Islam since he was assigned as the Chief Plans writer for the U S Army Seventh Corps in 1969. He has closely observed Islam slowly metastasize in the world for nearly 50 years.

    He wrote this essay and has kept it updated. He believes that if Hillary Clinton wins the election that the United States will be an "Islamic Nation" with Sharia law in approximately 20 years. Fred has been trying to get his essay, An Infidel's Guide to Islam to Donald Trump before the election but does not believe that he has been successful.

    The real beauty of 7.62x54R has been the availability of massive quantities of super cheap surplus sealed spam cans full of it. A few years ago most of them were from the 1980s. A can with 440 cartridges was typically around $80 or less. I just checked at all the places we used to buy them and those deals seem to be long gone.

    We have got quite a bit of boxer primed brass in 7.62x54R that I under-charge or use Red Dot powder in. They last a long time when used that way and we can shoot unjacketed heat treated cast bullets that I make myself. Momma and the kids like them because they kick less because of the reduced velocities.

    When my relatives from rural Eastern Washington came to visit, a favorite topic for discussion was always small animals that they had shot with powerful weapons. The bunny in question looked very intact as compared to the descriptions that I heard on many occasions. Which was typically, “Yeah, I blowed him up real good!” or something similar. These stories were good for loads of laughter, as each one tried to out do the other.

  • Will Trump Show for Future Debates ?

    fireman15 to chiller

    I thought that Lester and Hillary tag teamed Trump and put him on the defensive early in the game, but he fought off their attacks and kept his cool. He wasn’t trying to fire off zingers; he was trying to look “Presidential” and he succeeded. He acted like a complete gentleman especially at the very end of the debate after Hillary’s awful and vicious attack. He looked toward Chelsea and said that there were a lot of things that he was tempted to say, but was not going to. Even though I would have been just as happy if he would have unloaded on her, he showed true class. And he seemed very sincere throughout the “debate”. He is a very quick study and I expect that his next performance will be stronger. He saved his ammo and she used all of hers... what has she got left?

    Hillary looked smug and her voice was grating. She was blinking at least once a second through most of the “debate”. And her eyes looked a little weird to me. Her performance and her answers felt very rehearsed. She might have felt that she was winning with her well rehearsed performance, but I do not believe that she resonated with people. She made a bee line to her Scooby van as quickly as possible after the debate. She looked like a wounded old raccoon after you have chased it away from your garbage cans and got some really good whacks in with your broom. She was completely spent.

    I would be very surprised if this debate didn’t really take it out of her. Together Bill and Hillary looked like disgraced guests sneaking away from a party. Trump was hanging around looking like he was having a great time socializing with all the people he invited to the debate. He wasn’t really bothering to spin things; it looked more like he was truly enjoying the evening and the other people. He looked like he still had lots of energy.

    The “debate” is a typical MSM spectacle. Hillary annoys the hell out of me, but it would probably be just as well if Trump mostly ignored whatever crap she is spewing and stuck with whatever message he wants to get out. It is all going fine however and I expect her to start faltering a bit.

    By the way, the head and body should be burned separately.

    That is a very good point! I was being careless. And the separate remains should be in placed in separate airtight containers and buried at least 200 feet down in an abandoned mine shaft with several feet of solid concrete both under and above the containers which should be at least 20 miles from one another. Or for even more safety this would be hundreds under of feet under of granite under the bottom of the ocean under several thousand feet of water.

    The landslide wave is getting bigger and bigger and bigger.

    The only problem is that Hillary is like the villain in a horror film. Just when you think they are dead; they come back and attack again. A stake needs to be driven through her evil heart, a “high capacity” magazine of silver tipped bullets needs to be emptied into her seemingly lifeless carcass, whatever is left needs to be incinerated and even then I will not breath easy until Donald Trump has taken the oath of office and is sitting safely in the oval office. The Clinton's and the Democrats are that evil.

    But over 100 million people will be watching this live and unfiltered tonight. Perhaps the biggest TV audience in history. At least the biggest audience for a national presidential debate.

    It seems likely that the majority of people who will be voting in this election will be watching, and my guess is that there will be enough fire works that many will watch the entire 90 minutes. The moderator will be biased; Hillary will lie; Trump will be Trump; and afterward the media will attempt a Trump take down by “fact checking” everything that he said.

    But the damage will be done, this will be a side by side comparison and no matter how much cheer leading the Left does the contrast between the two candidates will be stark. Especially on modern Big Screen High Definition Televisions... Trump is more impressive than Hillary by every possible measure and that is what will shine through no matter how much we are told not to believe our lying eyes afterward.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. This site probably has a lot of folks who were already at this point, even before the Kaepernick idiocy.

    Comments? I think this is a mistake and has been my biggest worry for Trump - not really properly preparing for these debates. If Trump bombs Monday I'm not sure there’ll be enough time for him to rebound.

    Trump's team knows that anything that lowers expectations for him is good especially if he does well. It might also help keep her from calling in sick. That is all that his team is doing by releasing this. This makes no difference at all. Trump out works Hillary by at leas three to one on everything. He will be superbly prepared for this debate.

    Then there is also the James Bond custom built Podium that Hillary is going to have at her disposal.

    Hey, Hillary and her bladder need that custom built podium with the stool above some absorbent material to hide the puddle. It will be especially amusing if she starts choking on her water part way through the debate. All Trump really needs to do is piss her off enough to get her to lose her cool while acting “presidential”. Whatever debate prep she has been doing will go right out the window. This is going to be absolute blood sport and Trump knows it. But like in any good horror flick he needs to keep hammering her even if it looks like she is down for the count.

    Selling an electronic pdf for profit is no different than asking money for one’s emails.

    I am not sure what your point is? Most commercial eBooks intended for Kindles or other eBook readers are not in pdf format, they are generally in epub, mobi, or azw format with some sort of DRM (digital rights management) protection. They are typically more compact than a pdf file and have more viewing options. This is helpful when you start getting older and a larger font is easier for you to read. And people, lots of people pay lots of money to read them. We have friends who have gotten a pretty good amount of royalties from their eBook sales. They generally make more money from their eBook sales than the paperbacks.

    Personally, as a prolific junk collector, I have found that I am better off in most situations purchasing electronic books. They are cheaper, do not take up space and if you buy them from Amazon, you can download a book you have purchased to just about any device when you are out and about. A lot of times if you buy a hard copy on Amazon they will sell you the eBook for just a dollar or two extra. If you lend an eBook to someone, they automatically come back to you after a prescribed amount of time. If you check an eBook out from the library you do not have to worry about a fine or going back to the library. They have a lot of advantages for me.

    My wife and I have owned a “private” plane for decades, a small Piper Cherokee. 25 years ago we took off from where we were keeping it in Western Washington to go on a trip to Southern California. There was a warm front coming in from the ocean so I made a bee line for the mountain pass to avoid a low visibility situation.

    As soon as we got across the mountains we turned South and headed for California. My wife had been upset, because as we were taking off a woman on a horse who was riding near the runway waved at us. I had never seen her before, but my wife became convinced that her wave indicated that the two of us were having some sort of relationship.

    My wife started yelling at me, and it was kind of escalating from there, but about that time God intervened. As the warm moist air pushed its way across the mountains it reached high altitudes and thunder clouds began sprouting up near us. One minute she was yelling at me and the next there was lightning uncomfortably close to our plane and nasty turbulence. We both thanked God for being fortunate enough to have an airplane and promised not to fight any more.

    I kept diverting further east to get around the bad weather until we finally ended up over North Western corner of Utah before we were finally able to head back West to California. Our trip South would have been just as fast in the car.

The first one to graduate is literally a genius and graduated from high school 2 years early. She was pushed ahead because of her great potential and earned a 4 year degree in 3 years. She is currently pushing grocery carts in from the parking lot at QFC. I have no doubt that she will eventually have a better job but it will most likely have nothing to do with her worthless degree. But don’t argue about global warming with her.

    Welcome to the Trump Train Ted!!! A little late to the party, but a great statement none the less.

    It seems like Luke 15:11–32 is appropriate here: The Parable of the Lost Son

    11 Jesus continued: “There was a man who had two sons.a 12 The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’b So he divided his propertyc between them.

    13 “Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealthd in wild living. 14 After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need. 15 So he went and hired himself out to a citizen of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed pigs.e 16 He longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything.

    17 “When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! 18 I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinnedf against heaven and against you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants.’ 20 So he got up and went to his father.

    “But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.g

    21 “The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.h I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’

    22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robei and put it on him. Put a ring on his fingerj and sandals on his feet. 23 Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. 24 For this son of mine was dead and is alive again;k he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.l

    25 “Meanwhile, the older son was in the field. When he came near the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 So he called one of the servants and asked him what was going on. 27 ‘Your brother has come,’ he replied, ‘and your father has killed the fattened calf because he has him back safe and sound.’

    28 “The older brother became angrym and refused to go in. So his father went out and pleaded with him. 29 But he answered his father, ‘Look! All these years I’ve been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders. Yet you never gave me even a young goat so I could celebrate with my friends. 30 But when this son of yours who has squandered your propertyn with prostituteso comes home, you kill the fattened calf for him!’

    31 “ ‘My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. 32 But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ ”p

    off topic, but I wonder if Lester Holt has been under pressure to “get” Trump and “take down” Trump in this debate.

    “Mr. Trump, who is the prime minister of Togo?”

    Holt has been given his marching orders even if only by seeing what happened to Matt Lauer after he failed to make Trump look like a chump. So you better believe that Trump is going to get hardball gotcha questions while Hillary will be asked about topics that will illustrate her past experience, her intelligence, and her compassion.

    They probably didn’t want to let her have the step stool because they were worried she would fall off of it.

    Where's the reputable source for that statement?

    It is coming through Drudge right now.

    EDITOR'S NOTE: The presidential debate commission settled an early flashpoint when Clinton demanded a step-stool at the podium to add height to her 5'4” frame. Campaign Chairman John Podesta expressed concern that Hillary would be dwarfed by 6'2” Trump. The request was quickly rejected. The commission is allowing for a custom-made podium, which will accommodate the difference in stature. “
