Why not $250 an hour?

Then we would all be rich.

Our politicians are morons.

However, I fully support this. As a nurse, I can currently get a 10 week travel contract to California paying $3k a week plus per diem for expenses. Under this plan, nursing contracts would go up to $10k a week or more. I could take one contract a year and be retired for the other 42 weeks a year.

States Ignoring SCOTUS

The Hawaii Supreme Court has ruled that SCOTUS was wrong in the decisions in Bruen and in Heller. For that reason, they have ruled that a man can be prosecuted for rights protected by the Constitution, and have reinstated his case.

I am not interested in litigating the case here. I am interested in pointing out that the states are increasingly ignoring the decisions of the Federal courts. This can only end in one place- the complete collapse of the system of government of the US.

Ammo Shortages Continue

From Peter, China and Russia produce most of the world’s nitrocellulose, which is used to make gunpowder. Since the remaining countries are using it all to supply Ukraine and Israel, there won’t be much left for US civilian use.

As I have been telling you for a few years:

  • Get out of the cities
  • Make sure that you have a large stock of “war shots.” I’m not talking about range ammo and being able to spend recreation time at the range. I am talking about having ammo for self and home defense when the SHTF. Your guess is as good as mine, but I would suggest 1,000 rounds in each caliber for handguns, 250 for each shotgun caliber, and 5,000 for battle rifles.
  • When the supply dries up, range time will have to be cut back.
  • Don’t think that reloading will get you out of this. A gunpowder shortage will be felt everywhere.


Texas is telling the Feds and SCOTUS to GFY.

Then, Oklahoma joined them.

Now, so has Florida.

There are those who claim that it isn’t an invasion because the immigrants don’t have any guns. Not so fast, there. If you can have an unarmed insurrection, you can have an unarmed invasion.

Then Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming followed with their own support of Texas. Sixteen states with a combined population of more than 118 million people are pushing back as of the moment I am writing this.

So is this just election year posturing, or is this the beginning of Republicans pushing back? What do you think?

Islamic Invaders

From JKB over at Gunfree zone.

If it is possible for me to do so, I will tag anyone who comes for me and mine. Even if they get me, I will hopefully be found surrounded by spent brass, and the person who did so will be easily identified by travelling to the nearest hospital and looking in the ditches for the guy with the sucking chest wound.

If they should kill my wife and not me, hell will have no fury like that which I will unleash. I won’t care about trials. I will come after any goat fucking Islamist that I see. At that point, they will have taken from me the thing I treasure most. See “The Outlaw Josey Wales” for reference.

Now remember, when things look bad and it looks like you’re not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. ‘Cause if you lose your head and you give up, then you neither live nor win. That’s just the way it is.

Breakdown of Civilized Society

The complete loss of not only common sense (they admit to eating meat while claiming that the killing of animals is wrong) and the complete loss of civility (an adult allowing his preteen son to call an adult an asshole and tell him to fuck off) is just a bridge too far.

The American people and its society have completely broken down.

Drone Warfare

Take a look at this drone launch. Do you think that you can shoot down this drone while it is moving at 120 miles per hour? Are you that good of a skeet shooter? Are your eyes that good?

Drones are transforming the front lines in Ukraine. If an enemy drone is in the area, you are going to be attacked by that drone, or by the force that it is calling down upon your head. In war, there’s never a safe space. What if the eyes in the sky are unblinking? What happens when the hunters are also the hunted?

The drones are being used to directly attack individuals and vehicles. They are being used as spotters for artillery and airstrikes, or even for reconnaissance. This has caused the war to move into the field of electronic warfare. The people in Ukraine are not only tracking where the drones are, they are tracking where they came from. This way, drones can then be sent to the launch site to attack the enemy drone operators.

Individual troops carry early warning receivers to alert them when drones are nearby. Each side tries to jam the other’s drone using electronic warfare. They use drones to bring explosives to the other side’s jamming equipment.

This is our future. Drones are a force multiplier. For both sides. What makes drones so powerful of a force multiplier is that they are commercially available, and there are tools that will enable private citizens to cause some extreme pain to a much larger foe. Imagine the fear that an infantryman feels when he can’t sleep outside, because he knows that 24/7, even while off duty, there is an eye in the sky that is on the prowl, not only looking to target you, but to find out where you live so that your family can be targeted later.

The coming civil war will be anything but civil. The lesson here is to learn more and more about the future of drone warfare.
