Life is going on…

Have not had much to say here recently.

Been more than a bit busy with work and motorcycle stuff.

Congress, Cut it out.  Until you start enforcing existing gun laws to even find out if they work you can blow me…

Marland Legislature:

Thanks for the new gun laws. They are so ineffective you can still cash and carry things like the SCAR 17 with just a NICS check.  We still get to own and get new 30 round magazines.

Thanks for the New Taxes, including the one on RAIN.  I am sure that MD will find a way to tax air shortly.

Not getting the Speed Cameras law repealed fixed, because “free money” coming out of our wallets.

Thanks for ignoring the thousands of people that bothered to come to Annapolis and turn the lights on only to watch the cockroaches scurry under their desks and play Chess…

Oh yea, 2014 is next year. A whole bunch of us can now vote in your primaries, you know those primaries that you only won by 100 votes or so.  Yea we were watching you in the committee meetings, and more so on the House and Senate floor.  More importantly we watched you vote to take our civil and god given rights away all the while you thought it was a joke…  Not to mention opening your mouthes to show us just how stupid 90% of you really are.  Almost forgot to mention how we watched you vote for other members who were not in their seats when the votes happened

Stay classy MD Dums…

No one pays with a check anymore… And why you should not go to the Grocery store on Easter.

So here you are just minding your own business in the grocery store, just getting it done. Then you go to get in a checkout line and here is where it goes all pear shaped on you, and lets face it the checkout line is always where the bad stuff happens in the grocery store.

Only two lines open for the people with more than 15 items in their cart. So I choose the shorter of the two with only two people in the line. Little did I know that there was a cat lady in the process of checking out.

I have my first inkling of the horror that my checkout was going to be come when I notice that Ms. Cat is holding each item up just before the clerk can grab it and then informs the clerk how much each item is on sale for, at this point I figure that its Easter and I should go find some Peeps that I should not have.

5 Minutes later I am back sans peeps as they were hiding them quite well. I get back in line since there were only Ms. Cat and the poor lady tapping her foot. I figured that she would be almost done. But at that moment she got out her coupon book. She had to verify with the clerk each time a coupon did not work or did not come up with the right amount. Five minutes later we finally come to the last coupon and it is time to pay, I am now getting excited that I could see the light at the end of the checkout line so to speak. But NO Ms. Cat has put paid to that dream when she extracts her CHECK BOOK from the bottom of her airplane hangar of a purse.

Really? I mean Really? Who still uses a Check Book, I have not used one for anything besides the cleaning ladies in more than 2 years. I just don’t see the point of a checkbook any longer as you can’t kite a check anymore since the cash register is linked into the ATM network and it verifies if the funds are in your bank or not.

At least she thanked the clerk for his extra time and efforts. No thanks to us in line behind her though. On the plus side the lady in front of me did not vault the cart and strangle Ms. Cat.

37,000

So in the first three months for this year there have been 37,000 firearms purchased.  Not delivered mind you, just purchased.  For 2008 there were only 37,000 for the whole year.

That is what happens when the people fear their government.

Not sure if we are winning or not but the message has been sent…

1307 Against the Bill to 32 For the Bill

That is the official tally for the number of citizens that showed up to testify at the House hearing on their version of the Assault Weapons ban which is named something to do with public safety.

The testimony wrapped up at 3:45, the latest ever for public testimony.  Probably not the latest for their middle of the night closed door powwows on how to raise taxes or screw us over in some other way.

If the house does not see the light on this one I guess I become a criminal on October 1…

Stuffed

I almost got stuffed today in traffic…  The Local PoPo decided that they would block 4 lanes of traffic as they tried to get a van to pull over.  Of course everyone behind that decided that they were going to slam on their brakes.  I usually try and keep a few car lengths in front of me free when this crap is going on.  While I was braking I kept an eye on the rear view mirror.  The truck behind me was not paying attention and by the time he noticed traffic was dramatically slowing down he decided it was time to do panic braking.  I was also looking at the guy behind him who was paying even less attention to the traffic.

I shifted it from 6th into third, let out the clutch and full throttled it just as the white truck hit the black truck directly behind me.  I had enough buffer room to outrun the accident that was happening behind me and then enough brakes to keep me from hitting the guy in front of me when I ran out of buffer space in front of me.  Usually I would dive out of the lane but this time there was traffic on either side of me.

There is nothing like having 420 wheel HP on tap when you need it, and big 4 pot brake calipers for when you need to throw out the anchor.

Wow.

I mean wow.  I stopped past my local gun range/gunstore.  This is a fairly large store with usually three hundred or so pistols and a few long guns.  They had just finished putting out their stock and I was perusing the display cases.  I was stunned to see that in the 10 cases with 30~40 firearms each 98% of the guns were marked SOLD.  There were only a couple of .22s and the odd wheel gun that were not marked sold.

The Peoples Republic of Maryland is backlogged well over 30 days processing the paperwork for people, not that you could buy a gun right now, err at least not a legal one.

 

 

Michael Z. Williamson

This is from his post where he pisses off everyone.  He does seem to hit the ball out of the park in his blog post so go read the whole thing on his page.  Oh and buy a knife while you are at it.  If the knives are too rich for your blood go buy a t-shirt because you know you are rooting for the panda…

First they came for the blacks, and I spoke up because it was wrong, even though I’m not black.

Then they came for the gays, and I spoke up, even though I’m not gay.

Then they came for the Muslims, and I spoke up, because it was wrong, even though I’m an atheist.

When they came for illegal aliens, I spoke up, even though I’m a legal immigrant.

Then they came for the pornographers, rebels and dissenters and their speech and flag burning, and I spoke up, because rights are not only for the establishment.

Then they came for the gun owners, and you liberal shitbags threw me under the bus, even though I’d done nothing wrong.  So when they come to put you on the train, you can fucking choke and die.

Michael is the only author which I have signed copies of his books, he has even been a commenter on this blog in a former iteration.  I have read all of his books to date and can’t wait for the next one.

Photo time is coming…

I really need to put up some photos.  I have lots of new toys that need to be put up on the old blog.  I have acquired more than my fair share of evil black rifles this year.  Maybe this weekend if I have time.  I do plan on breaking in the new shotgun on Sunday…
