Thank You, for your guidance; thoughts and prayers

I did not ever actually request thoughts and prayers, but I think that accounts for my diplomacy coup, and shameless manipulation for peace with the Enter the Blue Sky band.   I won't bore myself, and anyone reading, with a lot of detail.

When I say "thoughts", as in "thank you for your thoughts and prayers", I do not mean thoughts as in tell me out loud what you think.  No one cares about that.  geez

We caravanned to the fair gig today.  The stand up bass fills one car and I wanted mine as a refuge should any physical stuff manifest.   The set started with hints of the heebie jeebies but by the end of our hour and a half, it wasn't too bad.  Never went over that edge--point of no return where it makes it nearly impossible to do a thing like play.

So, my experimental strategies for the MPN Jak2 pins and needles itch syndrome seem to be working.   But this was an incredibly beautiful and temperate day; mostly sunny, about 70 deg, and in the fifties tonight.

In a few days, my area is forecast for some 100 degree madness. That's some lesser number celsius.  Alright, let's see if we can remember the math or derive the formula.

C = x (F -32)
100 = x(212- 32 ) = x 180 =100
x= 100/180  = 5/9

C = 5/9 (F-32)   5/9(70-32)  =5/9 (38)=  190/9 = 21.111
It was 21.1 deg C

And breezy.

The end

The Exchange With The Musket Parrot

Here is the annoying fb propaganda bit and discussion.   I tried to remove names to avoid trouble.  Let's see if it actually posts.  Note, on my last entry here I wanted to push as to why she insisted on maintaining the lie even after it was pointed out, but I refrained.

I think I did well not getting personal by suggesting it all has to do with her hatred of men.  I know the girl, and, like many mindless angry lockstep progressives, I do think that is a large part of her issue.
I thought there were lol's.  Now there is a smiley face.  OK. I was over the top, myself then.  But I still can't get a nice, lightweight select fire weapon.   I won't even address the ones who act like these are super powerful rifles.  They aren't.  And like I said, I am not a gun guy, but I do check facts and hate lies. and dangerous laws and restrictions on rights.

[note below link re NRA blablabla. It goes to where they mislead taking a quote out of context and still describe the rifle as 700 rounds per minute.  A fat lie.  They want you to sign a petition for big control, without even reading the proposed bill of course.  People want so badly to belong to a team, they will pretend anything to achieve that.  And suspend, morality, disbelief, freedom, you name it.  spineless pulp

Ian Belmondo Where are such guns available, aside from the military?
musket mama Back in the days of our forefathers, I bet just about everyone had a gun especially given how rural the country was at the time.
Ian Belmondo Where can I get one that shoots 13.3 rounds per second, legally?

Note : the link above referencing NRA which links to a page at, goes to a page which is a blatant deception.  They describe the military version of an AR 15.  You cannot get that gun but they pretend that is what all rifles of the look do.  Big lie and their acolytes ignore any evidence that it is bunk.

Unbelievable; the road to dystopia

0K.  I do not even like guns that much.  Never have.  But if they are going to be around, I prefer that plenty of them are in the hands of the public, not just state officials.  State, here, refers to government on all levels.

I don't think that the public having semi automatic weapons even slightly protects them from a rogue government who already reserves the right to have the most effective weapons for themselves.  We have seen an increasing tendency to use war machinery and weapons against the population.

Friggin towns the size of Mayberry are acquiring war wagons and mini tanks.  Yet the koolaid people are sure that we are under a wave of murder like never before, etc.

One side says that it got worse since semis quit being banned.  The other side points out that the vast majority, maybe all, major mass shootings of the last several years have been in gun free zones.  Each draws a correlation that may or may not be coincidence.  Though, if I were to shoot people like fish in a barrel, I would prefer that neither they nor the fish are armed.

But Rolling Stone now has an article about why the second amendment should be repealed.  It reminds me of elementary school when the teacher decided to be all cutting edge and gave the class a chance to suggest the rules we would go by for the year.

Holy S***.  Just like now, the snarky little creeps who wanted to ingratiate themselves with the powers that be rattled off rule after rule.  Far more than the average teacher ever posted in the class.

I knew then I was in for a rough ride in life.  I did not and do not fit in with crime and punishment fanatics, busy bodies who can't allow people to just live as they see fit while minding their own business.   And they have been winning the day for quite some time.  As more and more people who cannot conform well to systems arranged by mentally ill idiots fall through the cracks, die on the street, or just call it a day out of frustration with trying to make sense of it.

Next Rolling Stone or Salon, or some other outfit that is just too damn cool for their own ink, will decide that the first amendment must go, or at least require a permit.  The Trump protestors justify shutting him down and attacking people because his talk is "dangerous".  Like their punches, car burnings, rock throwing and ambush attacks aren't.   I do tie them all together.  They all want the same thing, silence opposition.

We already see colleges censoring content like crazy; cancelling speeches by those who do not parrot the PC talking points du jour.  They change a bit from time to time.  A few decades ago the clamor was about "hand guns"  and hand gun violence.  More death from those than rifles.   "Saturday night specials" were all the rage.  Hysteria, like now.  Why does anyone need a gun?  Leave it to professionals.

Before long it is almost illegal to defend one's self.   Actually, it has worked out that way sometimes. Someone shoots an attacker.  Oh the hot water that ensues.  And progressives then twist stand your ground laws, aimed at allowing you not to be bullied by bad guys, into a conspiracy against Blacks.  Insane.  If anyone needs to be able to carry whatever weapon, whenever, I would think it would be people in predominately Black neighborhoods.  Particularly the poorer ones.  Wherever gangs run things.

Look people totalitarianism doesn't work out well.  It brings much more suffering.  Look at all the murdered people it took to satisfy the Soviet leadership back when, China, Cuba, friggin Cambodia.  All powerful and controlling states suck.   Your communist utopia is not pleasant.  It can only exist at the point of a gun, and often involves lots of killing.  So don't even try to act like you are a wonderful, altruistic, peacenik when you spout that stuff.

Those who wish for communism just figure they'll be at the handle end of the hammer or sickle, not the business end.  Good luck morons.  And to Rolling Stone and Salon, you are bona fide fools.  RS, stick to rock n roll gossip and music reviews.  Salon, stick to fashion or pop culture, or whatever it is you actually can discuss without lying and pushing for abridgment of the freedom of others.

It Is BS, but They Pretend

So Musket girl--sure the second amendment pragmatically only referred to muskets rather than some principle designed to avoid a totalitarian state--still is pretending to answer my plea to show me where to find an automatic weapon.

She has ignored her 13.3/sec lol BS.   This time she did not lol, but posts in reply a big link to where I can find semi-automatic weapons.  She states dryly, It will shoot as fast as you can pull the trigger.  Gee thanks Annie Oakley, who would have dreamt it.

I did not let her off.  I replied that there would be no sale since that is not the 13.3 round/sec unit she promised I could buy.  This is how it is trying to even hold a wild eyed progressive, who is more interested in being a progressive and accepted by peers than telling the truth.

There is an angry hysteria to it.  People like musket girl will simply pretend the question was never asked, or twist it into some false story with a well place lol or two.  Annoying as can be.

 I never said what I thought about gun laws, just that it is a lie that A. Orlando murder man had an automatic weapon, and B. That a person can just walk in and buy a select fire weapon with auto mode.

Maybe she can pull the trigger 700 times in a minute.  I know that is beyond my ability.

What is it with people who get suckered into the Soros backed political agenda?  One commenter on Musket lady's thread assured that the point of the false meme was totally valid.  But based it upon lies.  The facts are just minutia that get in the way of what they want to be true.

It happens all over the political world.  It is just so easy to point it out when hysterical democrats get all wound up about guns.  All of a sudden we have machine guns everywhere, and anyone can just walk in to Walmart and buy fully automatic weapons with armor piercing bullets.

I have never been much of a gun guy, but these people have sold me.  I want one of those guns they keep talking about.  But the bastards won't tell me where they are.  Musket girl pulled a bait and switch; tried to pass of a semi automatic on me.

Well, we lie for a good cause, so that makes it all OK.   After all, WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING!!!!!!  Who cares what, as long as it involves stepping on someone else's rights.  It just isn't any good if it doesn't screw someone over.

And on the hold-a-quarter-between-your-knees-for-birth-control crowd comes up with other nonsense.  People are suggesting cause and effect where doesn't exist or there is no evidence to suggest a correlation.  
The insistance on publishing blatant lies because for some reason, to be a progressive you must trust government officials more than your neighbor or yourself--let's put all power in hands of the state.  I really do not get these people at all, and I am related to a few.

Dang It. Facebook and musket girl

So musket girl, after I ask where I can get a weapon that fires 13.3 rounds per second in response to her propaganda meme off a koolaid site, responds that I can just hit my local gun store or gun show  "Dude, and they'll hook you right up. lol"

Right here is what separates me from conformist progressives, lol.  LOLing without a clue that she is not spouting anything approaching truth, and it only makes her look smart in her eyes.  And maybe her fellow parrots.  Some guy came to her rescue, claiming the meme point was valid and I was just delving in details.

Yea.  Like the truth.  You are raising hell claiming we need to ban weapons which are already banned.  You are telling people this guy used what, by your description, would be what has been called a machine gun.  Similar in that one pull of the trigger and the rounds go one after the other too fast to count.  Well, much faster than you could pull a trigger over and over.  You good for 13.3/sec?  Not I.

But why, oh why was I dumb enough to call bullshit on this totally fooled person.  She really thinks it is all true.  Whatever they say on moveon or daily kos is gospel.  Throw in some huff post and yeeha, I can let them think for me. I chose a team and , right or wrong, I am sticking with it.

Fresh daily supply of talking points, ridicule tactics against opponents, justification for why it is OK to forcibly interfere with their rights.  Because you are a victim and owe no morality here, besides you know best.

I am not too heavy in any camp.  Sick of propaganda and obvious lack of understanding of the Constitution.  That is nothing new though.  Ignoring the law of the land has served democrats and republicans and their cronies for longer than I've been on the planet.  It has just tended to snowball so it has become worse, more blatant.  And the public argues in favor of the nonsense.

I almost suckered even more and put out a facebook post, offering to buy a select fire/automatic weapon that shoots 700 rounds per minute for the person who can show me where such easy pickings on machines guns are to be legally had.  I deleting and did not post it.  Too many over the top democrats and stuff around the family.  Some them have no blood left--pure koolaid in the veins.  No hope.  If you are not with them, they think you should be dead.  And they call it self defense.

Seriously, you think a bunch of the right is delusional?  Lockstep progressives can boggle your mind.  Like the one insisting, in friggin california, that I can walk down to the gun store and pick out a fully automatic AR 15 or similar.

I never have liked the progressive approach, or the democrat approach much.  Laws out the wazoo and corrupt as the day is long.  Constantly finding excuses to supervise and serve as arbiter of people's personal choices.  Sorry but that is just the game.  Republicans just pretend to be opponents.  So it seems.

And they get really great subgroups like evangelical this or that who invariably shoot themselves in the foot because they confuse how one conducts himself with how he wants to force others to behave.  They get confused.  You really have to let go of some things and work through attraction to elevate the culture.   So far I do not see that happening.

All is well and good, but these groups often piss off most of the population which in effect usurps opposition to the other jerks.

Oh well. I can't believe musket girl.  Because the daily kos thing to do is post ridiculous misleading propaganda, she got right on it, then lol's me because she is parroting a lie without ever checking it out.  She refers me to some progressive site meme. Took up a whole page but only a paragraph or two.  It repeated that Congressman's 700 round lie.  Bold face, intentional lying going on, and bold face clueless, moron parrot lying going on.

So I told her the things have been banned for years.  Offered to buy her one if she could legally find it for civilians.  Now maybe she'll pretend to be cartel, and the fast and furious team at justice will hook her up.  I think I offered.  Maybe not? Don't want to check.  I am sick of the twisting of facts by rah rah democrats, mostly, and republicans too.  Due to lies and ethnicity politics the dems have managed to manipulate Latinos and Blacks into silencing opposition.

They are like brown shirts, in a way.  Their ignorance allows them to be victims so that makes them special, and gives excuse for any fit of anger or anti social behavior.  Now way they want to acknowledge or even hear any facts.  Ignorance is not only bliss, it is more lucrative, and the path of least resistance.

Besides attacking people for no reason, and destroying property, the bastards hurt a horse.  Now I like people but I am not big on cops.  However they did not start these fights and they are being forced to be complicit with riffraff in most of California.  In another state the SOBs hurt a police horse.  And see, here is where I side with cops.  Those people could have legitimately been shot as far as I am concerned.  But I wouldn't do it or order it.  But if someone did, I would not condemn them either.  But better be real damn sure.

When you stop traffic or disrupt the potential flow of life saving services, you at least deserve to be physically moved, forklift, heavy roller...  It is violence.

I'm in disbelief at the faulty logic making the rounds and I am sad that so many people I know are right there on the band wagons being fooled and manipulated.  But it is still a real coup top pretend that Trump is somehow more dangerous than a Hillary Clinton, or any other veteran Washington DC politician in the upper power echelons.

How many died in Viet Nam?  50, 000?  Something like that.  Democrats and Republicans.  Although  Johnson was getting them killed right and left.  And you think Trump is more dangerous than the people who brought you that debacle?  Even if you were all for it you got screwed because they refused to win.  We won stuff all over the place but we had all these hold backs and suicidal rules of engagement for fighters on land and air.

If getting that many people killed after kidnapping them and forcing them to go, a good many were drafted.  The draft is like the hand of satan in my book.  I will fight if there is a legitimate threat.  Today's soldiers fight to protect the lives of one another.

Dangerous is the point.  You get 50k young men, mostly, killed, and do not even secure the damned place, then you suck and you are dangerous.  They have tried to deflect that to Nixon.  Sorry.  Nixon finally suspended the draft and said screw and quit the war.  He knew he was forbidden from actually winning, or whatever best case is in a war like that.

Going on forever. Playing the stupid fair again tomorrow afternoon.  I pray and hope I have no attack in reaction to heat outdoors. Sun. It used to be that I thought the band had my back on that.  No more do I think so.  I doubt they even believe I have any real issues.  That's OK.  If I feel bad, I will hit the road.
