We are all terrorists now

Facebook, Microsoft, Verizon, and other tech companies are using what they call a “counterterrorism” organization that was originally intended for Muslim terrorists to go after the right. One of the pictures used is a three percenter who was at Stone Mountain as an example of “far right terrorist militia.”

Conspicuously absent is any mention of the NFAC, a violent black terrorist organization, who were also present at Stone Mountain, BLM, or Antifa, who did billions in damages and killed hundreds last summer.

Fact check

Vox Populi posted a link to a story about the passing of the CEO of UF Health, along with an insinuation that his death was related to the COVID vaccine.

Time after time, we caution the left not to attempt to spin a story about mass shootings before all of the facts are in. It appears that the same should apply to the right. The CEO of UF Health died from injuries sustained in a jet ski accident.

Felony photography

Disney claims that it is a felony to take photos of their behind the scenes areas from your car, if you are driving on roads owned by Disney. Many of the roads near the Orlando theme park are actually private property. When you arrive at the gate to the Magic Kingdom parking lot, you have been on Disney property for 7 miles or so.

Any lawyer types here care to specify what specific felony is being committed by taking pictures?

Their tactics are fun

For years, decades even, those on the left have been throwing useless little sayings at gun owners that are annoying because they are overly simplistic. You spend hours refuting them, then they come back with a pat little phrase that they think is humorous while displaying their own ignorance:

  • You can convert a semi auto to a machine gun by changing a spring
  • Guns are simply a substitute penis
  • You own guns because you want to kill people
  • Second Amendment is a collective right
  • and more

So I have begun doing the same thing. It really pisses them off. Take a look at this article. I posted (it’s been ‘deactivated’ for violating community guidelines) a comment reading: “If the vaccine works, then why do the vaccinated need to wear masks?” Read the hilarity that results.

Not for Americans

This woman helps people get dual citizenship so people can dodge taxes on their bitcoin holdings. It doesn’t work if you are a US citizen.

So what?

The hospital where I work was once down to only two COVID patients. The specialized COVID floor was shut down and reduced to a single wing weeks ago. Then the wing was reduced to a single hallway. Two weeks ago, there was not even a hallway- there were only two rooms with COVID patients. The hospital relaxed many COVID protocols- where we were once testing every single patient for COVID no matter why they were being seen, patients were being tested for COVID only if they had symptoms. It seemed that COVID was over.

When I last left work yesterday evening, there were more than thirty COVID patients. What caused the big change? Well for starters, the hospital began testing every patient again. Many patients who are COVID positive are there for other reasons and have no COVID symptoms. Many, but not all.

In the ICU, more than half of the patients there are COVID patients. We had a COVID fatality on Saturday. Every ICU patient with COVID is unvaccinated, and most of the other COVID positive patients are as well.

So what?

If people choose to be unvaccinated, that is their choice. I have chosen to get the vaccine. If someone else reviews the facts and doesn’t want it, that is up to them. What they choose doesn’t affect you.

Out of Spec

So I decided to continue working on my Skirmish rifle this morning. I completed the machining of the lower that I got from 5d, washed it, dried it, and began to put the parts into the lower. The first step was the magazine catch, and…

It doesn’t fit. The slot in the lower is too small for the catch to fit. I tried a second catch, and that one doesn’t fit, either. So I am assuming that the slot that 5d cut for the magazine catch is out of spec. I emailed them, and we will see what they say.

In other news, here is the parts list so far for this lower:

That brings the cost (so far) for this lower to $691, with nearly half of that ($270) being the trigger and buffer. I want to have this rifle done by the end of September, so I am still on schedule.

DISCLAIMER: I have no relationship with any of the vendors or manufacturers mentioned in this post, other than me being a customer. The prices paid and any discounts I received were those available to the general public.

End runs

Let’s say that the police want to search your home, but they don’t have the probable cause needed to get a warrant. So to solve this “problem” they come up with a plan. They have a criminal on speed dial who they recently caught committing a burglary do them a favor in exchange for the cops not arresting them. In this case, the burglar breaks into your house then anonymously calls the police to report seeing a dead body in the home. Or perhaps bomb making material. It doesn’t matter what he claims to have seen. This call falls under one of the exceptions that would allow the police to enter your home.

That’s a dick move, right? Would you consider that to be a violation of your Constitutional right against unreasonable search and seizure? In this case, the police didn’t have the legal ability to search your home, so they got another person to do it on their behalf.

Isn’t having a private business violate your First Amendment rights the same thing?

The “liberal” or “progressive” stance has always been that free speech is only about state suppression, not about private companies or individuals.

The argument has always been that Facebook/Twitter/Google etc. are private companies that have every right to decide what appears on their platforms. Of course, if the state is actively instructing the private companies on what to remove…that argument crumbles to dust.

Now do a little thinking and let me know what other Constitutional rights are being subverted because the government has enlisted others to do the violating.

Only one

The US government has decided that only their employees can be called astronauts, unless you do what they say.

According to the FAA, space explorers must go through training and fly beyond 80 kilometres above the Earth surface as a flight crew on a permitted launch or reentry vehicle to be considered an astronaut. They also must have “demonstrated activities during flight that were essential to public safety, or contributed to human space flight safety.”

By that definition, there were no US astronauts from 2011 to 2019, since all Americans who went into space in that time period were passengers on Russian spacecraft.
