Profiles in … something

House party. BYOB (Bring Your Own Bullets).

Well. I see the U.S. House has adjourned to Captain Horatio Huffenpuff’s Hiding Box because some Q pootbutt sent them a mash note.

Apparently the Pancake House Patriots could only afford one night at the Motel 6 in Dumfries, Va. Either that or their ace sapper really has to drop a deuce after two months in a broom closet washing down expired MREs with his own pee and waiting on the “go” code.

Meanwhile, the rest of yis are commanded to show up for duty as per usual. That is all. Dis-miss.

    I keep wondering if this is the “new 9-11”, i.e., permanent state of manufactured panic over domestic lunatics rather than the jihad crowd. Be ready for another overreaching PATRIOT Act.

      Heard the phrase “nontroversy” the other day and pretty sure I’ve been living under a rock cuz damn if that doesn’t explain the last 20 years of GOP policy.

    Q can pound sand up his or her imaginary ass. It’s probably a him.

      I think the Dems are wrong for wanting a universal background check to buy a firearm. I think we need a universal IQ test.

      My favorite bit in today’s news was how the T**** hotel and only the T**** hotel jacked prices up this week. His only reliable business skill has proven to be identifying people dumber than himself.

    From WaPo: 10:54 a.m. At the Capitol, a March 4 threat from militant Trump supporters proves a mirage.

    I guess they got wind that the free burgers and fries had not shown up.

    Next thing on the stupid list is “faith leaders” telling their people to avoid the J&J vaccine if possible because a cell line which had a fetal cell as its origin was used in the manufacturing process. I don’t give a shit about these “leaders” except when it affects public health.

    I have a friend who is on the edge of being a nut case. He bought a a lot of guns when Obama was in office, and a few more before Hillary lost.
    Then he seemed to calm down until the 2020 election. He couldn’t buy anymore guns unless he buried them – two gun safes and one gun cabinet were full of rifles. The top shelves of the safes had around six pistols.
    He is a worrier – I’ve known him for 40 or more years- and I doubt that he has shot 4 or 5 of those weapons during that time.
    We go for long walks in the woods around here and we go fishing. When we go for walks in the woods he always has a pistol because he has fear of snakes.

    In my humble opinion he is not a threat to democracy; just someone who bought into an online narrative. His brother on the other hand…

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Funny thing. When the news is bad, they buy guns. When the news is good, they buy guns. If their side is “winning,” they buy guns. If their side is “losing,” they buy guns.

      Makes me wish I’d gone into the gun business. I could’ve spent all these years drawing “Shot Talk” cartoons for Firearms Retailer and Industry News. I wonder what the Mud Stud would look like in that timeline.

      • SAO' Says:

        Publishing as a industry is in the toilet. But you go to the PX/BX, and they always have the latest issue of Chicks and Ammo. We’ll run out of trees to print it on before that closes up shop.

      • Pat O’Brien Says:

        Try to buy one right now. Or a box of 22’s. Sorry, sold out. Been that way since before Xmas. I can’t explain it, other than fear.

        • DownhillBill Says:

          I live near one of the biggest dealers on the East coast (they supply ammo to most of the other local dealers). The AR’s and pistols evaporated first, then ammo, then the new would-be shooters discovered reloading. Now there’s no brass, no bullets, and literally no powder, not even the stuff nobody uses. Primers are the ultimate in unobtanium as the factories are using all they can make for their own cartridges.
          I did see a few used AR’s the last time I was there, but the ammo drought continues. This dealer BTW puts the ammo out as soon as they get it, and does not gouge on prices. Most who have any inventory are charging 2X or more the usual prices. I’ve seen as much as 4X online, when the ethical places are not even taking back orders.

          Yeah, fear. Which I feel when thinking about all the noobs armed with everything except training, practice, and sense.

          I went over to Midway the other day. A buck a round for 9mm FMJ. Shit, I normally get that stuff for a quarter a round. I think its time to put in some practice with the compound bow.

        • Patrick O'Grady Says:

          That’s what Hal’s doing. He has several bows and sticks a few pins in a cushion most every day.

          I haven’t shot a gun, any gun, in over 4 years. I still have a single action revolver, that I keep hidden with a trigger lock on it. I take it down every 6 months or so to check it, wipe it down, and put it back away again. Don’t even know why I keep it. I could sell it an buy a GS-Mini. Whaddaya think of that, Patrick?
          That’s a nice takedown recurve that Hall has. Looks like carbon arrows fletches with plastic vanes in a right helical pattern. Shooting carbon arrows off the shelf with a recurve gave me the fear based on the early ones sometimes shattering on release from a heavy bow. I stuck which aluminum, fletched right helical with shield feathers, for off the shelf shooting.

        • khal spencer Says:

          I haven’t had the compound out since we moved to Fanta Se. The Los Alamos range, which has two archery courses of fire, is now a 35 mile hike. I think there is an archery club down near the animal shelter on Caja del Rio but have to go find it and find out whether it is worth membership. Now that I have a surgically repaired shoulder, I can actually draw the bow without wincing.

          I stuck with aluminum arrows too, for the same reason. My bow is a compound handed down from my stepdad when he upgraded a long time ago. Fletched the arrows myself last time they needed it. I’m neither all that serious a shooter nor that good at it so spending a boatload of money on ritzy stuff makes no sense.

      Most of them are not a threat to democracy. Just a little off center.

    So all you have to do now is make a few threats on some nutcase website and you can shut down the government? Sigh… typical law enforcement move. Go from botching it to over reacting. But now that I consider things, maybe keeping Rethuglican legislators away from Washington isn’t such a bad thing. Damn how much more skullduggery can they come up with? Some of them would have made exceptional pirates in the 1600’s.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      La Pelosi says the House took a knee in part because the Rethuglicans planned to attend their “annual issues retreat.” Which has to be utter donkey doo. Since when has a Rethuglican ever cared about issues?

    • DownhillBill Says:

      The possibility of the redo of January today was known shortly after that fiasco. This is the date used for presidential inaugurations before adoption of the current system. The Trumpanzees would have liked to make it so again, but for the LE and Natl. Guard pre-emption.

    • khal spencer Says:

      I think a lot of this is self-reinforcing bullshit. 9-11 brought us the Patriot Act and this will bring us some other over-reaction. These right wing goofballs will be re-writing Matthew as “No one knows when Trump will come again” and the usual Dem suspects will be falsely quaking in their boots and writing bills that will be toxic to the Bill of Rights.

      Its all a cluster fuck.

  7. Pat O’Brien Says:

    Well, Patrick, here is a distraction for you and me. Now, what color? Yellow perhaps?

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      O, yeah, I’ve been lusting after one of them for a while now. The 45km/h model would be too pokey for Dog Country, though. The 70km/h jobber would barely get ’er done.

    • carl duellman Says:

      back in the day i wanted a vespa but i’m 6′-5″ so i would look pretty goofy which i don’t need. $7600 seems reasonable for such a cool looking machine.

    • Pat O'Brien Says:

      I keep trying to steal Patrick’s Vespa, but when I am in his garage he makes me keep my hands in my pockets and gets twitchy when I am around his bike parts stash. Keeps a weather eye on me, he does. I think he does the same with Khal and Herb. Especially Herb.
