    That type of round could be an interesting defense round for folks working in country where you have potentially dangerous big game prowling around. Hunting uses? Maybe not so much, but what bits remained would be nicely tenderized.

    The Factor provides an important function in terms of news. It lets me know that Megyn Kelly’s show is coming up, so I can unmute the TV in 60 minutes or less.

    The President stepping up to the plate…for softball practice. O’Reilly will ask one tough question at some point to keep up his sham image of a no-spin, hardcore interviewer, but the rest will be mush, populist questions that make Barry look good (or at least not like transparent schmuck). I really hope I am wrong about that. I sincerely wish Bill would put him on the interviewing hot plate, but that is very unlikely to happen.

    So you ended up sucking at baseball as a kid and now make snarky quips towards the sport? LOL. Classic

    Café standards strike again. The vehicle is close to 100% aluminum and can be paired with a performance V-8. That is a formula for accident catastrophe. It reminds me of what happened when the guys at Detroit Motor Sports paired a compact V-8 with a Mazda Miata. We affectionately called them Zoomsplats. First you go zoom, then you go splat. The truck will be more like a Skidcrunch. Skid on the road and the frame crunches and twists to hell and back. The repair bills should be exciting. Hopefully the fatalities will be few to none. A big thanks to the eco-hustlers out there who forced these increasingly unsafe vehicles upon us /sarc.

    You do see a distinct difference between a lot of younger couples (say, those under 40). Liberal women seem to lean towards wishy-washy metros and are often the more dominant personality in the relationship. Conservative women lean towards guys who act like guys and the relationships seem far more of a balance of importance in the mix.

    It isn’t the days of the old left-leaning households where a Democrat-voting man still watched football, hunted, fished, worked on cars and thought it was funny to fart in a grocery store. Today’s lefty ‘men’ worry about manicures, fashion and not appearing too overtly male in social settings so as not to make the feminists and doodle-distrusters around them feel uncomfortable.

    The one huge leg up that our military engineers/designers have on the Chinese is innate drive towards creativity. The Chinese are excellent duplicators, patent stealers and wheel-greasers to get our own people to leak tech secrets to them. Much past noodles and gunpowder where have the big Chinese innovations been over the last few centuries? There haven’t really been any. Tighten up security, enforce our military secrets with draconian strictness if need be and design them out of competitiveness. They are a patient people who play the long game. How about they play it in the dark?

    As a graduate trained statistician I can say that one should take the finding of this study with a grain of salt. If you cherry-pick your data set, a researcher can link any piece of information to any type of causality.

    Good question. That is a lot of premium game meat that could potentially go to waste. Some lib cities, though, have already banned donating hunted, non-government regulated food to shelters and other feeding charities for purely bogus reasons such as questionable salt and fat content, etc. I would be shocked if a hungry person would turn down a steamy plate of fresh venison over concerns that it might end up on their hips at the end of the day. The feds and big government types want to control the means of charity and sustenance.

    I’ve low carb’d my way down from a fatty-fat-fatso 364 lbs to 225 lbs. I have about another 30-ish to go to get where I want. I messed up the maintenance part the first time I low carb’d and gained a bit back that I had to re-lose. Lessons well-learned, though. Light exercise and carb control has been a great combo for me.

    Americans are the most charitable people in the world. Allow us to give and we do, without the insistance and demands from some state authority. We give because we can, sometimes when we truly can’t, but know it it the right thing to do as there are people worse off than us at the time. The flame of charity could truly spark to life if the government stopped penalizing people and businesses for their generosity, for not $1 of those donations, gifts or endowments are required.

    Remove the cap for charitable deductions. Allow a 1:1 tax deduction for all charitable donations and We the People will redistribute our wealth as We see fit. And Americans will give. History shows it to be true.

    But in DC, it’s all about control and almost nothing to do with charity. The Beltway Robberbarons will happily restribute your money, to whom they deem worthy…after their cut for the entitled bureaucracy, of course. For the politician, they see any charitable donation as a tax dodge and how dare people and businesses try to keep funds they have earned out of the public coffers. It seems there is always a need for 30 pieces of silver in DC.

    The smart phone zombies are everywhere. The mall and grocery store has to be the worst, though. Those folks are walking head-on in full blinders mode. It does make for a fun game, though, if you’re feeling ornery. Just stop in your tracks right in front of them and see if they are awake enough to not plow into you and fall onto their butts. If they’re not gigantic freaks it can be a fun game and more of them get indignant than one might think. The only time I took honest expection to one of these folks was when a bike rider was riding and texting on the sidewalk and my wife had to dodge out of the way. He got grabbed and we had a conversation :) Good times.

    Is that the same group that’s attacking the Chaplain Corps for not providing spiritiual outreach to the non-spiritual?

    How about a little personal responsibility on his part? It’s one simple box to tick to turn off auto-complete. Rocket science, it ain’t. $60million of taxpayer dollars in relief for a case of the boo-hoos? No way! How about $20 for a box of tissues and a gallon of high quality ice cream so he can curl up on the couch and bemoan not bothering to actually learn the e-platform search engine he was using. Yeesh.

    Would not the secondary market only exist if there is at some point a primary manufacturer to smelt the lead for the first time? Once the recycled lead is gobbled up where do we go for re-supply? I still approach this one with caution.

    Failed Eurozone socialist countires to their west and growing totalitarianism to their east. Not a good place for them to be in.

    Ah, those good ol’ classical Muslim hymns:

    Oh Cannonbomb
    The Little Gunner Boy
    Infidels Roasting on an Open Fire
    It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Jihad
    Spray the Halls with Tears of Allah
    On the First day of Jihad, the Imam Said to Me

    And many other fireside favorites of the Islamonazis.

    Get a little clarified butter to dunk those sammiches and other items in…oh, yeah. That’s snackin’

    The entire group of neighborhood boys I grew up with all had small pocket knives with us. As I recall, most of them were gifts from adults to keep with us. Mine certainly was. There never an incident of those knoves being used as weapons. We knew better. Those knives were tools, a handy utility item when needed, sometimes in class. There were no freakouts, lockdowns, DHS callouts, etc.

    But the levels of responsibility with items like that was different then. There was the stone cold reality of what would happen if you had “a serious case of dumba##” (one of my family’s favorite catchphrases) and did something idiotic with them. It wasn’t a case of IF the thunder would be called down on you if you acted senselessly, it wa a matter of how bad the storm would be and how many people you’d get it from. We were also from the generation where deer season meant hunting rifles and slug-barreled shotguns being kept in one’s vehicle or locked in the principal’s office until it was head-out time. Again, not one single incident in our town’s history when that was allowed. Now, all hell would break loose.

    Kids are taught to scream, soil themselves and hide in a fallout shelter at the sight of an L-shaped Pop Tart,let alone a knife or gun. The fields masses have been sown with fear and it has been done in a very calculated, chilling political fashion. Buddy that up with weapon-free zones and you have a formula for disaster…like we have sadly been witness to.
