Telling Lies

Fantasy vs Reality on Background Checks
The fantasy is the claim by the Brady Bunch that 93% of Americans support universal background checks. Even in States where background check initiatives have passed, the highest percentage was around 60% and THAT'S with Bloomberg and his fellow butt heads buying the elections. The anti-gun people keep making shit up and expecting people to buy it.

Thursday, December 29, 2016

Heh

Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Bet he won't make that mistake again...

...but for the moment enjoy. Bloomberg spent 20 million dollars to buy passage of a ballot initiative in Nevada that only passed by the barest of margins and it can't be implemented.
The issue is that Nevada is designated as a Point-of-Contact (POC) state, meaning that, like Pennsylvania, they have a state background check system that is designated by the FBI to conduct background checks under the Brady Act. Bloomberg’s new law states that the checks have to be conducted by the FBI’s National Instant Check System. Given that Nevada is a POC state, the FBI will not conduct checks on behalf of Nevada. The law cannot be complied with, and is therefore completely unworkable and unenforceable.
Can you imagine just how pissed Mikey is right now? Now THAT'S funny.

John Lott on Miss Sloane

Poorly funded gun-control advocates are shown doing battle with the big, bad National Rifle Association. Of course, Michael Bloomberg is never mentioned. He would spoil the story, since he gives $50 million a year to his regulation-pushing Everytown for Gun Safety. This is 2.5 times more than the NRA spends on political activities. From 2013 to 2016, Bloomberg donated a total of $48 million to candidates running for federal office. The NRA contributed just $2.1 million. And that’s not even mentioning the hundreds of millions that Bloomberg, George Soros, and others funnel into producing gun-control research.

A Girl in Time by John Birmingham
"There is a technical, literary term for those who mistake the opinions and beliefs of characters in a novel for those of the author. The term is 'idiot'."
I had to keep that quote in the forefront of my mind as I read this book. The Millennial lead is one of those characters that in real life drive me nuts. The Marshall, I liked, and I sense, or at least hope, the lead will learn from his example as the series progresses. I did not enjoy this as much as I have other novels by Birmingham. That could just as easily be accounted to my own political bias as the book. He has promised more books in this series. I will read them, and hope I enjoy what follows more.

Stalin's Hammer: Paris by John Birmingham

I pretty much love about two thirds of his novel and couldn't care less about the rest. The Axis of Time and Dave Hooper books were great. I couldn't get past the first few chapters of Without Warning. It just couldn't hold my attention. The Stalin's Hammer stories are one novel broken into sections. I like 'em but wish he would have just published them as one book. Since I can't get what I want this will do. They are every bit as good as the other Axis of Time books. I'm sure, hope, he will write more. Until then, he has a new book that I'm trying out. I'll let you know what I think when I've finished it.

Fearmongering and Lies

Reciprocity means if Texas permits a man to walk into a coffee shop, a church or a school with a Bushmaster AR-15 slung over his shoulder, Connecticut must follow suit. It would mean that every time that happened, we’d relive the horror of Dec. 14, 2012, while being forced to stand down, powerless to act.
No. National reciprocity would require that the concealed carry permits of one state be honored by all others much like the vehicle operators license of one state are honored in all other states. It has fuck all to do with open carry. That would remain the prerogative of the individual states. The slightest bit of research would tell anyone this. The above quote may be ignorance of the facts. If so, it is a willful ignorance intended to scare people who know less than the writer. It is fear mongering. It is lying. BUT that's what gun bigots do.

This saves me the trouble of having to watch it.

I haven't and won't see it. Based on what I've read, it's a Hollywood gun control wet dream with little or no relationship to reality. At a cost of $18,000,000 it may break even...maybe. The lead, Jessica Chastain, will probably get an Oscar nomination. Then it will fade into the Lifetime oblivion it deserves.

UPDATE: Tom Madden, the Director, claims the production did not consult with either side of the gun control debate. Apparently, the Brady Bunch and actors in the film didn't get that message. AND Wikipedia's entry on the film calls it a box office bomb. Drum roll...it made 1.7 million over the weekend. What did they expect. People want to be entertained at the theater, not preached to.

A Thank You to the IRS

So the wife and I got a notice from the IRS that we owed Uncle Sam money. I was expecting this but not the sum they wanted. So I called the help line Tuesday. The guy I spoke to was professional and quickly gave me the answer to my question. Hell, he answered my question before I could even answer it. I'd transposed a number on my daughter's Social Security on the form. I couldn't resolve it then. I was calling from work and didn't have access to her number. I called back today and spoke to another person, a lady, and spent close to an hour and a half on hold waiting for a resolution that didn't come because i was disconnected. I waited about ten minutes then called again. I got another lady who have me set after about ten minutes with the amount I knew I owed down to what I expected. I got the distinct impression #2 didn't really know what she was doing, but even she was polite and professional throughout. For all that we want to hate the IRS, we also have to give credit where it's due. So, thanks for your help guys. I'm really glad I don't owe the Fed close to two thousand dollars.

Angeleyes by Michael Z. Williamson

It is the latest in his Freehold series and another of the battle for Grainne's freedom from Earth. I liked it. not as much as Freehold or The Weapon. There seemed to be an emotional distance in the prose until the last few pages. It wasn't until then that I felt anything for the lead character, but that's me. you may read it and see it differently. I do recommend it and all the others in the series, and I do look forward to Mike's next book.

Makes Sense to Me

On November 18, the Pentagon issued a Defense Department directive that will “allow Department of Defense (D0D) personnel to carry firearms and employ deadly force while performing official duties.”

Secretary of Defense Robert Work approved the directive.

Military.com reports that the directive “also provides detailed guidance to the services for permitting soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Coast Guard personnel to carry privately owned firearms on DoD property.” It authorizes “commanders, 05 and above…[to] grant permission to DoD personnel requesting to carry a privately owned firearm (concealed or open carry) on DoD property for a personal protection purpose not related to performance of an official duty or status.”

He may not be your President,...

...but he is THE President and deserving of a minimum of respect.

'cuz they'll be blood in the streets.

The New York Daily News has a problem with Trump and the NRA pushing National Reciprocity on Concealed Carry, because there'll be blood in the streets. Those may issue states, that only issue permits to the politically affluent, will have to honor the permits issued to us rednecks in flyover country if we visit New York. There will be blood in the streets, except you gun bigots always make this claim, and it never bears fruit. Ever. Hasn't since the trend of "Shall Issue" got started in Florida in 1987. It isn't gonna happen now. So stop lying while we're asking nicely...please.

Quote of the Day

I've got to say: if you're trying to make a case against Trump via trying to reverse the election by mob rule, by threats of violence against electors, and by openly planning an insurrection -- er, "disruption"?

Then you're making one hell of a good case that Trump is less of a threat to democracy than his opponents. - Charlie Martin

Gallup: Support for ban on assault weapons hits all-time low

“All-time” means “in the 20 years they’ve been measuring this,” but still. In 1996, amid soaring public concern about crime, support for a ban stood at 57/42. Twenty years later, after a long period of stupendous decline in crime rates in many major cities, it stands at … 36/61. As recently as four years ago, the gap between support for a ban and opposition was still fairly narrow at 44/51. Four years later, the bottom has dropped out. Huh.
Just another factoid that the Left will ignore at will.

The Bully Party

Team Clinton has succeeded in perpetuating one of the greatest evils I have seen in my lifetime. Her side has branded Trump supporters (40%+ of voters) as Nazis, sexists, homophobes, racists, and a few other fighting words. Their argument is built on confirmation bias and persuasion. But facts don’t matter because facts never matter in politics. What matters is that Clinton’s framing of Trump provides moral cover for any bullying behavior online or in person. - Scott Adams
As bad as it was during the Obama runs, it wasn't this bad. I'd thought of Trump as a bully. No evidence. He just struck me as the type. He'd be a piker compared to Hillary Clinton.
