Sorry ‘Bout That

While strolling round the harbor this morning about 11 am., I noticed this character shouting “Allah be praised” and “Death to all infidels” and suddenly he tripped and fell into the water. He was struggling to stay afloat because of all the explosives he was carrying. If he didn’t get help he would surely drown. Being a responsible citizen, and abiding by the law of the land that requires you to help those in distress, I informed the Police, the Coastguard, the Immigration Office and even the Fire Dept.

It is now 4 p.m., the terrorist has drowned and none of the authorities have shown up. I’m beginning to think I wasted four stamps.

A Sunday Sermon

It is a beautiful Palm Sunday morning in America. We are enjoying the last of the cool weather and Spring is upon us. The news of the day is likely to rob you of your Joy and so it is that the doors of the Church must be opened as a refuge to the world weary soul.

This Palm Sunday we remember the beginning of the final week of the pre-crucifixion life of Jesus Christ. The greatest act of Love the world would ever know was only a few days away. The Lamb of God who takes away the Sin of the World would fulfill his Mission. That Love will forever resonate throughout the Cosmos and you can be part of it today.

Amazing Love – A message by Pastor Herb Reavis of North Jacksonville Baptist Church

Note To Range Safety Officers…

… If you’re going to run barriers drills be extra vigilant. Scary.

Picking up brass on a hot range is stupid but no one stopped him.

American Volunteers fighting in Iraq

Nope, these aren’t highly paid contractors working as a mercenary Army. These are Warriors who understand what is required in the War of Good -VS- Evil. They are men of passion. They fight because they know it is the right thing for them to do.

This week it was revealed that several communities in my area have been targeted by ISIS. Within 24 Hours of that revelation a volunteer Army was being formed to go fight them. Interviews for acceptance are being conducted right now. When they get where they are going they will be joining a handful of Americans who have already gone over. The mainstream media caught up with some of them this week…

I love the combat assault tractor.

Friday Night at the Movies Double Feature

I had never heard of this movie prior to this week as I scoured the web in search of movies. This is a very old Submarine Movie, the oldest I’ve ever seen. Sure. I’ve seen documentaries on Submarines that were older than this but this is the oldest theatrical production. Well I’ve actually only seen part of it thus far. The leading man in this movie is Alan Hale. We remember him as Skipper of the SS Minnow. Not only is this the oldest Submarine Movie you’ve ever seen, this will probably be the youngest version of the Skipper that you have ever seen.

I hope you will enjoy this one…

Friday Night at the Movies – The Atomic Submarine

untitled (39)

Welcome to the Real Revo Drive-In Theater, all you who are out cruising tonight. Why don’t you cruise on in here and park it for a while? The price is right. The net is full of many diversions but a Friday Night Movie is an essential part of an enjoyable weekend.

Our previous Friday Night Flight was a crash and burn for me. I was sure that a movie entitled 2020 Texas Gladiators would be an absolutely awesome movie. Never before had I seen a movie that starts out with a bare chested machete man running and then throwing a knife, sticking it firmly between the eyes of his opponent. I was sure that movie would have to be off the chain fun. I was wrong.

I became aware that I was wrong when my girlfriend notified me that I was wrong.

Backyard Drive-In

If only I didn’t have other priorities right now. As it is though, I have demonstrated the ability to create a backyard movie theater suitable for large numbers of children with a 400 watt compact metal halide digital projector and a 72 inch screen. I could do a bigger screen than that with excellent image sharpness with that projector. I have a great sound system to go with it too.

That all seems quite meaningless right about now.

I think I want this…

Hm. Don’t Know If I’d Try This But Ian Did

This is from Ian from Forgotten Weapons. It’s an interesting test. I don’t know how long it took to get him cleaned up – or the rifles either – but it’s interesting none the less.

Battle rifles in mud. How do they perform?

You know, I used to shoot High-Power rifle at a military base. There I learned that the M14/M1a rifle was more accurate that the M1. They are accurate but lately I have heard from owners that the AR10 can be more accurate than the M14/M1A. Some AR platform rifles are spectacular. I have shot a bull barrel AR15 that would group five shots at 100 yards into 5/16″ on a regular basis. I see no reason why an AR pattern rifle in .308 wouldn’t do the same thing – and they do.

You know technology is your friend. Just like the new polymer framed pistols are out-performing the all-steel pistols in reliability and accuracy, the newer rifles have shown that accurate rifles are not a mistake of coincidence. The armorers know what is needed to shoot small groups and understand that it is a matter of putting the right parts together in the right way. The gunsmith’s mumbo-jumbo has been done away with.

The idea that AR platform rifles are more reliable encourages me to look at them.

The Family Drive-In

It was far too brief a period of time when my Mother used to lay a small mattress in the back seat of our 1964 Plymouth Valiant, pack up some sandwiches and snacks, grab a box of Ritz Mosquito Coils, load me and My Sister up and head to the Main Street Drive-In. I saw my first James Bond movie, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service there. I saw 20,000 Leagues under the Sea there. I also remember seeing 101 Dalmatians, Swiss Family Robinson, Lady and the Tramp, Pinocchio, Robinson Caruso. I remember seeing lots of movies at the Main Street Drive-In.

When my Mother was single, money was really tight. When I say really tight… the first time she told me how much money she had left after bills to buy food with each week, she only told me that a couple of Years ago and it caused me to squirt a few tears. I had no idea we were that poor. Nonetheless, every now and then she could afford a trip to the Drive-In on Dollar Car Load night. The Main Street Drive-In had a playground and every now and then they had fireworks. It was an enchanted place.

BREAKING NEWS: The Weekend just hit the East Coast

Reality is inescapable

Progressives as both individuals and as a group effort spend a great deal of time trying to convince others that their life experiences and common sense are very crude tools for dealing with and discerning Reality. They spend a great deal of time trying to explain why what it is that you know to be true and accurate, isn’t. In effect they engage in continual denial of reality.

HERE is a fine example of exactly what I am talking about.

Then Reality shows up…

REALITY always ends up being the exact opposite of what they have explained it to be.

Many Years ago RD Walker published a piece here on this very subject that explained “I can see it as if it had already happened”.

Now we get to see what that Reality looks like.

Why targeting Rednecks is a bad idea

My City has been in a bit of an uproar since it was learned that ISIS has targeted some communities in our area.

It’s not cool to target Rednecks nor is it intelligent to do so.

Rednecks will end up making a target out of YOU

Of course the Rednecks I speak of are prior service military Veterans with combat experience.

Germanwings Pilots refuse to fly

They say they aren’t flying for “Personal Reasons”.

They say they are concerned about a safety issue concerning a repair to the doors of the nose landing gear.

Liars.

I’m sure that they are more concerned with the most plausible cause of an aircraft disintegrating in flight and falling for 8 minutes without even being able to get out a Mayday call.

Good Luck, Fuck!

Relax. It’s a basketball players last name in Canada. For Fuck’s sake, give him a break. Instead, we should be supporting him and chanting, “Let’s go Fuck! Let’s go Fuck!”

Guilherme Crabogiale Fuck has a fantastic, mellifluous name, and it would be more childish to pretend we’re not tickled by the fact that his surname is an English obscenity. It’s funny, and it’s curious, but it’s easily explicable: the 6-foot-6 forward for Alberta’s Medicine Hat College is a Brazilian of German descent.

Police State Update: Capital Controls In The Land Of The Free

The police state is tightening it’s grip. You thought your money belonged to you? That’s cute. Your bank already spies on you for the government. The feds are effectively lowering the threshold which triggers a report on your financial activity. It also has the appearance of a crude capital control, acting as an early warning system for possible runs on the bank, or more cynically, an attempt by the feds to intimidate people into not taking out their money.

Earlier this week, a senior official from the Justice Department spoke to a group of bankers about the need for them to rat out their customers to the police. What a lot of people don’t realize is that banks are already unpaid government spies. Federal regulations in the Land of the Free REQUIRE banks to file ‘suspicious activity reports’ or SARs on their customers. And it’s not optional.

Banks have minimum quotas of SARs they need to fill out and submit to the federal government.

If they don’t file enough SARs, they can be fined. They can lose their banking charter. And yes, bank executives and directors can even be imprisoned for noncompliance[…]

And chances are, your banker has filled one out on you—they submitted 1.6 MILLION SARs in 2013 alone. But now the Justice Department is saying that SARs aren’t enough. Now, whenever banks suspect something ‘suspicious’ is going on, they want them to pick up the phone and call the cops:

“[W]e encourage those institutions to consider whether to take more action: specifically, to alert law enforcement authorities about the problem, who may be able to seize the funds, initiate an investigation, or take other proactive steps.”

So what exactly constitutes ‘suspicious activity’? Basically anything.

According to the handbook for the Federal Financial Institution Examination Council, banks are required to file a SAR with respect to:

“Transactions conducted or attempted by, at, or through the bank (or an affiliate) and aggregating $5,000 or more…

Next Credit Crunch To Make ’08 Look Like A Hiccup

A hiccup… and the person having the hiccup is the entire world, and they have uncontrollable, explosive diarrhea.

A solar eclipse, a super moon, the FTSE 100 breaching 7,000 and the US Federal Reserve speaking in tongues – truly some kind of financial apocalypse must be nigh. Well, maybe.

We are certainly living in strange times. An unprecedented monetary experiment is coming to a staggered end and no one knows the potential repercussions – a plague of frogs cannot be entirely ruled out.

For the time being, the markets remain sanguine, expecting, for example, a gentle increase in the Bank of England’s main interest rate to just 1.5pc by the end of the decade. And, who knows, maybe the markets are right.

But maybe it’s too quiet. Last week, Ray Dalio, the founder of the $165bn (£110bn) hedge fund Bridgewater Associates, wrote a widely-circulated note warning his clients that the US Federal Reserve risked setting off a 1937-style crash when it starts raising interest rates again[…]

In 1937 the US was, economically speaking, an island, entire of itself; today, thanks to globalisation, the power of the dollar and a long period of ultra-loose monetary policy, it is a part of the main.

Christine Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund, recently raised concerns in India about the ripple effect of Fed tightening on countries that have borrowed heavily in dollars and whose still-recovering economies remain vulnerable to a rate rise.

And in 1937 the equity markets were the financial be-all and end-all; today they are dwarfed by the debt markets, which are, in turn, dwarfed by the derivatives markets.

The total value of all global equities was around $70 trillion in June last year, according to the World Federation of Exchanges; meanwhile, the notional value of all outstanding derivatives contracts was more than $690  trillion. It is worth noting that the vast majority (around four-fifths) of all existing derivatives contracts are based on interest rates.

WH Is Cool With Khamenei’s “Death To America” Chant

Screen-Shot-2015-03-23-at-9_40_45-PM-550x311

When asked to respond, WH Press Secretary Josh Earnest replied,“He totally didn’t mean that.”

CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta pressed White House press secretary Josh Earnest about why the Obama administration trusted an Iranian Ayatollah who only recently chanted “Death to America.”

“Over the weekend, Ayatollah Khomeini gave a speech,” Acosta said. ”And during that speech, there were people in the crowd chanting ‘Death to America’ and the Ayatollah responded back to them according to various translations, ‘Of course, Death to America.’ Do those comments give this White House any pause about moving forward with a nuclear deal with that country?”

“Those kinds of comments only underscore why it is so critically important that the United States and the international community succeed in preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon,” Earnest responded. “And the best way for us to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapons is sitting down at the negotiating table and getting Iran to make very specific commitments that would prevent them from obtaining nuclear weapons.”

In further defense of the “Smartest Diplomat Evah”, Josh Earnest explained His Majesty’s Foreign Policy thus:
