    BRILLIANCE IN THREE PARTS Part I: A. Back off and let those men who want to marry men, marry men. B. Allow those women who want to marry women, marry women. C. Allow those folks who want to abort their babies, abort their babies. In three generations, there will be no more Democrats. Part II: 10 Poorest Cities in America (How did it happen?) City, State, % of People Below the Poverty Level 1. Detroit, MI 32.5% 2. Buffalo, NY 29.9% 3 Cincinnati, OH 27.8% 4. Cleveland, OH 27.0% 5. Miami, FL 26.9% 5 St. Louis, MO 26.8% 7. El Paso, TX 26.4% 8. Milwaukee, WI 26.2% 9. Philadelphia, PA 25.1% 10. Newark, NJ 24.2% (Now, watch closely... at no time will the fingers leave the hands...) What do these top ten cities (over 250,000 pop.) with the highest poverty rate all have in common? Detroit, MI - (1st on poverty rate list) no elected Republican mayor since 1961 Buffalo, NY - (2nd) hasn't elected one since 1954 Cincinnati, OH - (3rd) not since 1984 Cleveland, OH - (4th) not since 1989 Miami, FL - (5th) has never had a Republican mayor St. Louis, MO - (6th) not since 1949 El Paso, TX - (7th) has never had a Republican mayor Milwaukee, WI - (8th) not since 1908 Philadelphia, PA - (9th) not since 1952 Newark, NJ - (10th) not since 1907 Einstein once said, 'The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.' It is the poor who habitually elect Democrats ... yet they are still POOR. Part III: "You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." ~ Abraham Lincoln "Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him had better take a much closer look at the American Indian." ~ Henry Ford

    From the 2021 NRAWC youth Adventure Camp. Our mission is leadership, patriotism and marksmanship in that order. I will post stuff as I have time as I need to get caught up. Miss me, LOL. 😆 With 12 pages of “unread topics” looks like you all have kept the place moving along nicely.🙃👍 Last year the ADVC was nixed because of the plandemic. This year no socialist distancing and no face diapers. And all according to WC covid policy. BFYTW. They have had enough covid BS tyranny and so have the rest of Americans. The instructor crew for all disciplines was ready to roll out and were well prepared with their courses of fire. So the campers got top notch instruction. And many thanks to the ADVC sponsors. I was lead rifle instructor again and once again blessed to have a very competent assistance. I also do hunt skills as I am a NM hunter ed instructor. More on that later… The evening of their day two long range rifle event is the pinnacle of the campers two day rifle class. That is long range night with the big gunz. Remember, they rotate through two days each of rifle, handgun, muzzleloader, shotgun and archery. All this is mixed with courses in leadership and camping and cooking skills. They do letter writing to the sponsors as well. They also hear the story of April 19th, 1775 which takes me about 45 minutes to do. I end with this quote: Our country is in danger, but not to be despaired of. Our enemies are numerous and powerful, but we have many friends, determining to be free, and heaven and earth will aid the resolution. On you depend the fortunes of America. You are to decide the important question, on which rest the happiness and liberty of millions yet unborn. Act worthy of yourselves.” Joseph Warren, March 6, 1775 The big Barrett M82A1 is always a big hit, pun intended. More on that later…. But I am really impressed with the 338 Lapua. A Savage Precision Rifle donated by Savage. It is topped with a Burris scope. Launching 300 grain bullets, up here in the thin air, this baby stays supersonic to over 2000 yards. We used the old Barrett range in which we used their existing steel. The 338 was shot to just under 1600 yards. Next year we will be a full mile or more. Here is the target after about 25 campers fired two rounds each. I am on the right. Each night before the campers arrive to the range, we rezero for the changing weather conditions. Just to be sure. One pic is looking thru the scope of the 338 to a rock the size of a buffalo at one mile away. It is a neck shot. 😝 Bottom pic is the view from the top pic. We shoot about 300 yards in front of the red cabins in the distance. A pic of me outside the cabin with the 338. It took five of us to lift the 36”x36” AR500 3/8” steel on that steep slope. …more later as I get caught up.

    https://redstate.com/nick-arama/2021/07/09/big-win-for-trump-carpe-donktum-and-freedom-of-speech-in-meme-lawsuit-n408840 "There was a famous video that went viral last year showing two little boys running toward each other and then hugging. One was black, the other white. Pro-Trump meme-maker Carpe Donktum, whose real name is Logan Cook, created a funny meme out of it, simulating a CNN news story with a chyron that read, “Terrified Todler [sic] Runs From Racist Baby,” then “Racist Baby Probably A Trump Voter,” then, “What actually happened.” The toddlers run at each other and embrace. Fade to black. Then next came, “AMERICA IS NOT THE PROBLEM….FAKE NEWS IS. IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING. ONLY YOU CAN PREVENT FAKE NEWS DUMPSTER FIRES.”

    Sarah was in the fertilized egg business. She had several hundred young pullets and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs. She kept records and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced. This took a lot of time, so she bought some tiny bells and attached them to her roosters. Each bell had a different tone, so she could tell from a distance which rooster was performing. Now, she could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells. Sarah's favorite rooster, old Butch, was a very fine specimen but, this morning she noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at all! When she went to investigate, she saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover. To Sarah's amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring. He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job, and walk on to the next one. Sarah was so proud of old Butch, she entered him in the Dowerin Show and he became an overnight sensation among the judges. The result was the judges not only awarded old Butch the "No Bell Peace Prize" they also awarded him the "Pulletsurprise" as well. Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making. Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the unsuspecting populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention? Vote carefully in the next election. You can't always hear the bells.

    Seems the underdogs are bullying or ramming those communist disenfranchised IDIOTS across the Isle ,on the ramifications of slanting their powers !!!. JUST IN: Senate Republicans Block Opening Debate on $1.2 Trillion Infrastructure Measure https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/07/just-senate-republicans-block-opening-debate-1-2-trillion-infrastructure-measure/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=the-gateway-pundit&utm_campaign=dailyam&utm_content=daily FYI ; It's close to Election term and Romney, Collins ,Murkowsk are feeling the Wrath of their perspective supporting constituents Senate Republicans on Wednesday blocked a move to start a debate on the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill that has nothing to do with infrastructure. 60 votes were needed to proceed and with the Senate split 50-50, at least 10 Republicans were needed to hit the 60 vote threshold. The motion to invoke cloture on the motion to proceed was not agreed to. The Senate blocked the debate in a 51-49 vote. So Someone is at least attempting to thwart those demented mental morons across the Isle

    Ok, maybe this will help. There's Covid 19 the virus and then there's Covid 19 the disease. They're not the same thing but the media uses the peoples ignorance to twist numbers to make their point. I'll see if I can simply this. A door knob can carry Covid 19, the virus. Any inanimate object can have the Virus on it and if you swabbed it, it would test positive. Given the right temperature, moisture present, and nutriets, the Virus can live one very long time. This is what we do when we grow it on a petri dish or in a test tube but it can also say up our nose which a moisture warm place. The disease on the other hand, the patient has symptoms basically in this case a severe flu symptoms. In short, the disease is the bad things the virus does to our bodies. Vaccines help our bodies fight off a given disease. Its not a bug zapper when we're exposed to that disease, the cause virus/bacteria, it doesn't kill the virus on contact. The antibodies in our bodies take time to attack the virus. Yep just like little soldiers and just like little soldiers they got to form up, transport, then attack. Also like little soldiers there's places they can't go and others hard to get to. If you follow this then anyone, anyone, who's had the vaccine or immune to the virus naturally can carry the virus from one point to another. Where we screwed up and lost freedoms and for that matter all commonsense, is by making this pandemic about protecting the whole and not the individual. Instead of making it the responsibility of the individual to not get the disease, we made it all our responsibilities they not get the disease. To put this in Lincoln terms, yep its our moral duty to stop people from jumping off a cliff but its not our moral duty to guard every cliff. In other words, we're not feeling well and/or we're worried we may get the disease, we wear a mask Here in E. TN, nobodies wearing a mask right now except in doctors offices etc. We never had state wide mask mandates. Even in the winter when most of us should wear masks, we had a percentage that didn't. Heck, I know folks that haven't through this entire thing. They'll say things like "Hey, I never got the flu in my life so probably won't get this." What do you say to that other than "probably right". We've accomplished Trumps goal which is vaccinate the majority of our vulnerable population those with a high chance of dying from the disease. Over 80% of us at risk and elderly are vaccinated. This virus is not magically going away and we can't stop everyone from getting the disease but many governments are stuck to trying to guard every cliff. Its a mathematical impossibility. What you know along with science Lawyer Politicians never took math either. Now to be blunt and bold and say somthing that would get me censored on Facebook. If the socialist use climate change as an excuse to control everything, you know damn well they won't pass up this pandemic. Tj

    I see a definite lack of work ethic these days in my field. Again, it is mostly from the younger folks. But what really grates on my nerves is these 19 year olds that come in, straight out of a trade school that ONLY taught them how to pass a welding test, and expect the same wage as the guy welding on twenty feet away, with 10 or 20 years of experience, and 1st class skill. I had one pork-chop looking kid with peach fuzz on his chin come in with a new PipeLiner hood that had been cut down, and a $250 Heavy Hitter tig-rig strapped to his back pack (all three the new "style" for pipe welders apparently) that complained about making $4/hr less than my other welders that had been with my company for years. This kid wouldn't do anything if it wasn't welding. Wouldn't pick up a broom or empty the trash, or anything. I finally had enough of his whining and told him he doesn't weld good enough for 1st-class pay. "That's bullshat! I can weld with the best!" I gave up welding 5 years ago on Doctor's orders, after sucking down weld fumes for 16 years, and I swapped over to the fitting side of things, but he didn't know that. To him, I was just the shop supervisor and a fitter. I told him to go to lunch and I'll make the next two welds. When he came back and saw the welds, he was dumbfounded. I told him if a fitter like me can weld that much better than him, then I didn't need him. Told him to load up his tools and I'll inspect his box on the way out the door. Gawd, I hate the youth these days.

    You missed the point; I did try! I stood up and put my ass out there for all to see. I traveled the state trying to put together a statewide citizen militia after WACO. All it got me was the FBI tapping my phone and surveilling my house. The few I got to join bolted at the first sign of trouble. I identified the infiltrator early on and met with the FBI to tell them they were wasting their time. This was my experience with the militias you seem to think is so easy to put together. So John, how’s your militia coming along? Terry

    Well…. It’s been a while fellas! Sorry to have been so absent the last few years! (Wow, years really!). this place was my internet home for so very long but life has just been crazy lately. After child number 3 My amount of free time has been very limited. Recently we have seen even more excitement. We were blessed last fall with the opportunity to purchase a 7 acre piece of property that we have wanted for a very long time. This spring we listed our house for sale and had an offer within 3 weeks!! so we have quickly transitioned into building mode. We are currently living in our 39’ travel trailer on the property while we are building our home. I am acting as the general contractor as well as doing as much of the work as I can my self. we are at day 37 of the build. the house is completely framed up and the roof is half on. Should be completely under roof by the end of the week. The house is 4 bed room 3 bath. 2750 sq feet with an attached 40x60 garage/man cave! the garage is big enough to pull our camper into so that we can live in it indoors this winter while we finish the house. I am also planning a man cave room inside the garage that is aprox 20x20 that will be heated and cooled for my gun, reloading, and hunting stuff. I hope everyone here has been well and i hope all of the usual suspects are still around. I’ll try to be less of a stranger around here. and if any of you want to follow our build more closely and are on Facebook we have a blog page called J5farmshouse.

    You will be fine with the substitution. You may see a tiny bit of velocity variation from a given recipe but the pressure difference will be safe for you. I personally use WLP's in any LR primer application that I run into. Admittedly I'm a study group of one but I have suffered no untoward effects and I can say I have shot a few more rounds than the average Hobbyist. Greg

    FYI : There is NO substitute for SALT ,NONE !. For ALL to read and understand : Heatstroke signs and symptoms include: High body temperature. A core body temperature of 104 F (40 C) or higher, obtained with a rectal thermometer, is the main sign of heatstroke. Altered mental state or behavior. Confusion, agitation, slurred speech, irritability, delirium, seizures and coma can all result from heatstroke. Alteration in sweating. In heatstroke brought on by hot weather, your skin will feel hot and dry to the touch. However, in heatstroke brought on by strenuous exercise, your skin may feel dry or slightly moist. Nausea and vomiting. You may feel sick to your stomach or vomit. Flushed skin. Your skin may turn red as your body temperature increases. Rapid breathing. Your breathing may become rapid and shallow. Racing heart rate. Your pulse may significantly increase because heat stress places a tremendous burden on your heart to help cool your body. Headache. Your head may throb. Age. Your ability to cope with extreme heat depends on the strength of your central nervous system. In the very young, the central nervous system is not fully developed, and in adults over 60, the central nervous system begins to deteriorate, which makes your body less able to cope with changes in body temperature. Both age groups usually have difficulty remaining hydrated, which also increases risk. Also any medications one may be using which could contribute to heat related stress more readily . Heat exhaustion is a heat-related illness that can occur after you've been exposed to high temperatures, and it often is accompanied by dehydration. There are two types of heat exhaustion: Water depletion. Signs include excessive thirst, weakness, headache, and loss of consciousness. Salt depletion. Signs include nausea and vomiting, muscle cramps, and dizziness. Although heat exhaustion isn't as serious as heat stroke, it isn't something to be taken lightly. Without proper intervention, heat exhaustion can progress to heat stroke, which can damage the brain and other vital organs, and even cause death. Symptoms of Heat Exhaustion The most common signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion include: Confusion Dark-colored urine (a sign of dehydration) Dizziness Fainting Fatigue Headache Muscle or abdominal cramps Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea Pale skin Profuse sweating Rapid heartbeat Treatment for Heat Exhaustion If you, or anyone else, has symptoms of heat exhaustion, it's essential to immediately get out of the heat and rest, preferably in an air-conditioned room. If you can't get inside, try to find the nearest cool and shady place. Other recommended strategies include: Drink plenty of fluids, especially sports drinks to replace lost salt (avoid caffeine and alcohol). Remove any tight or unnecessary clothing. Take a cool shower, bath, or sponge bath. Apply other cooling measures such as fans or ice towels. If such measures fail to provide relief within 15 minutes, seek emergency medical help, because untreated heat exhaustion can progress to heat stroke. After you've recovered from heat exhaustion, you'll probably be more sensitive to high temperatures during the following week. So it's best to avoid hot weather and heavy exercise until your doctor tells you that it's safe to resume your normal activities. Risk Factors for Heat Exhaustion Heat exhaustion is strongly related to the heat index, which is a measurement of how hot you feel when the effects of relative humidity and air temperature are combined. A relative humidity of 60% or more hampers sweat evaporation, which hinders your body's ability to cool itself. The risk of heat-related illness dramatically increases when the heat index climbs to 90 degrees or more. So it's important -- especially during heat waves -- to pay attention to the reported heat index, and also to remember that the heat index is even higher when you are standing in full sunshine.

    When you have a Republican POTUS who isn't opposing what you are voting on because he campaigned on it and won, they you don't need a veto proof majority. They could have repealed obamacare in its entirety and Trump would have signed it and that would have been it. Instead mccain voted with the democrats because he hated Trump more than he loved the idea of getting rid of obamacare. With that sort of attitude I am glad he lost his presidential bids every time he tried. I honestly believe he was brainwashed by the Vietnamese and turned against the USA and screwing all of us while getting back at Trump was his greatest act in helping the commies out in the world. Glad he's dead, still need to go to the US Naval Academy to pay my respects at his grave, does 7-11 still have the super big gulps? Need to pay ever ounce of my respects to him and want to make sure I am fully prepared.

    There is zero chance of biden being removed before the mid term elections and having his bumbling ass in office, raising taxes and being a moron will play well for the republicans. While I believe it is unlikely the republicans will ever remove him from office the only chance they have is to regain control of the house and senate by 2/3rds of the seats. Then just as soon as they are seated, begin impeachment against both biden and harris at the same time and have them both removed from office at the same time. I'd like to see them name Trump Speaker of the House and have him be sworn in as POTUS again. And then I would want to see him start cashiering swamp rats who are the deep state. But none of this will happen. It will come down to The People to right the ship and that will be extremely messy.

    ATF: Guns are easier to get your hands on than library books, Also ATF: Criminals have so much trouble getting guns they have resorted to building their own. So, which is it ATF? Both cannot be true. I sold a crap ton of 80% lowers over the years and I have never had anyone buy one who wouldn't have passed a BGC. Compare that to Hi Points where the thugs send in their GF's to buy them by the dozen and the ATF "doesn't have time to prosecute" and it just makes the ATF look ridiculous.

    I have previously mentioned that I lost my FIL last year in May right before he turned 95 years old. I am the only one in the family that shoots and he and I worked out that I would get all of his guns except a pump Winchester 22 that he passed down to his son. Of course one is not judged by his armory in our world and Dad had a few other things he treasured. One of these was a ring that he ended up with many years ago through some circumstance. His Brother had the ring for many years up until right before his death and it came back to Dad at that point. Time marched on and upon Bill's, my FIL, passing no one in the family evinced interest in the ring so it was given to me. I'm also the big ring wearer in the family. I knew it was special and knew it was a $5.00 gold coin. I started researching it and found that this year was produced in Philadelphia. I think Dad is smiling at me right now as his good Karma passed on in a bit of irony because of my love for certain things from that year.. Looking at it the date shows a production year of 1911!! Oddly enough today you can by a good 1911 for the price of this coin. I won't be wearing it as a daily bauble but I will be wearing it when I feel like channeling Dad a bit. So here's my new 1911 guys. Greg Sorry that pic is so big. It looks like I have hands as big as Wilt Chamberlains!

    Nothing in a 6.8 suggests they will shoot better than a 556/223. Factory loads are out there that do pretty well but they don't have near the work put into them as the 223 does. If you handload you can step up the accuracy of either round but it is far easier to get the little guy down in the 3's vs. the 6.8. I realize at that point we are talking bragging rights performance. In the real world application's I assure you that a well built 56.8 will meet 99% of most shooters needs and in the game fields you will not be wishing for a different stick. Probably the biggest downfall, to me, is that you can rarely if ever walk in to a normal gun shop in normal times and buy a 6.8 OTC. I don't buy whole AR's anyway so building an upper is no big deal. Of course I love the mix and match of parts selection. Many do not and YMMV. Greg

    Not only is it the 4th of July but the first weekend of constitutional conceal carry, no handgun permit required. The left is having a double anxiety breakdown. First let me say, I already have my "Lifetime" carry permit. Ironically I'm hearing the same panic lines from a lot of gun carry folks from cops to average Joe. I keep telling them nothing that matters has really changed because anyone you would have to use a gun on didn't give a crap about gun permits in the first place. The biggest line is "Everyone will carry now." After I say "I hope so." and get that look, I tell them "Yeah and when the speed limit changed from 55 everyone will doing 100 too." The truth is not everyone will and the fact we had a CCW law never has stopped anyone from carrying when the thought they needed to. Anyway here in TN, we've hit another gun rights milestone. Tj
