    Cool first response to a new off topic thread, first time ever first.
    Culture Club was never really my thing, at that point I leaned way toward Hank Williams Sr.

    • R.D. Walker says:

      Yeah, but “,,,,, chameleon!” Funny, right?

      Meanwhile, I will take Hank over Boy George any day.

    It’s a funny reference, but I thought it was a horned toad? “Comma, comma, comma, comma, comma horned toad….” < — doesn’t really ring a bell. :-)

    More like this please. So awesome…

    • KJ says:

      I’m pretty sure this isn’t on the Willie’s Roadhouse playlist.

      • R.D. Walker says:

        Nope. It is on Outlaw Country, however.

        • KJ says:

          Really?!? About all I listen to is Outlaw Country, never heard it on there.

          • R.D. Walker says:

            Maybe it’s on The Highway, I dunno. I switch rapidly between 60s on 6, 70s on 7, Willie’s Roadhouse, Prime Country, The Highway, Outlaw Country and Bluegrass Junction. The changer is on my steering wheel and I go back and forth constantly. I lose track…

            • KJ says:

              Well, it looks like you have good taste in music looking at that list.

              • R.D. Walker says:

                Those are my presets. Your mom is my Willie’s Roadhouse influence. I was hearing her play that stuff before you were born. About every third song reminds me of the house you grew up in.

            • KJ says:

              Not sure why it wouldn’t let me put this below your other post.

              But yeah, I know what you mean, that is the music I grew up on, and I still love it. Look at the house now, it’s like a shrine to 50′s, 60′s, and 70′s country.

            • KJ says:

              Hmm, it ended up going where I wanted it.

      • Locke n Load says:

        Well that one hasn’t popped up on Outlaw Country but I think I heard it on Prime when I wandered over there for some reason. Its way too Nashville for Outlaw, lol. Outlaw is heavy on the western side of country-western. Glad to hear yer listening to Outlaw tho, keep an ear open for the higway hellion and mornings with that cutie and her ‘apron strings’.

    Call me a Debbie downer over this Ben Carson thing, but my red flags are flying. This guy is too perfect. Saying too many perfect things. This guy came out of knowhere and all of the sudden he is the right guy. After all, look at the platform he was presented.

    Something stinks.

    He didn’t come out of nowhere. The man’s life story was made into a movie starring Cuba Gooding, Jr.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1295085/?ref_=fn_al_ch_1a

    He’s been married to his wife for 42 years, written 4 books, operates on 300 children a year, and received the Presidential Medal Of Freedom in 2008 from President Bush (back when it went to good Americans). He received the Horatio Alger Award for Distinguished Americans and seems to have lived a rather inspired life.

  6. notamobster says:

    Other winners of the Horatio Alger award:

    Gen. Chuck Yeager, Ronald Reagan, Paul Harvey, Billy Graham, Gen. Tommy Franks, Bob Dole, Dwight Eisenhower…

        From the little I’ve seen it looks like she’s a happy contestant. That’s a good thing.

        Pretty girl. Pretty girls grow up to become handsome women. Handsome women don’t get SI photo shoots.

  10. Locke n Load says:

    I am SO damn proud of Texas today. 180 miles from Midlothian to Austin and the ENTIRE route was blanketed with Texans saying goodbye to Chris Kyle. His funeral procession was almost 10 miles long. Somebody will eventually put together a video of the route down and the thousands that showed up to pay their respects. We need to find that video and post it. So far I’m finding videos from individual towns along the route but nothing that wraps up the whole run down 287 and I35.
    Do a youtube search and see for yourself but be careful, it’ll make your eyes leak. We did our own proud these last couple days. I have to wonder if it would have been like this anywhere else.
    God Bless Texas. RIP Chris.

  11. BigJimTX says:

    If they raise minimum wage, what does that do to unemployment/ SS disability/ etc. benefits? Do they track along with minimum wage?

    • R.D. Walker says:

      Raising minimum wage has predictable outcomes…

      Businesses will further automate. Maybe McDonald’s reduces the number of cashiers by putting in self-service touch screens. More self-check out lanes at Walmart. That sort of thing. Unemployment increases.

      Anyone with a job that was barely profitable at $7.50 is laid off. Unemployment increases.

      It gets harder than ever to get an entry level job and work your way up to higher wages. Youth unemployment rises.

      Prices will have to increase. No one sells anything below cost. Costs increase, prices increase. Inflation, therefore, eats up the wage increases.

      There will need to be more money in circulation. The Fed will be forced to increase the money supply. Inflation eats up wage increases.

      Inflation results in COLA increases for SS and so forth. SS withholdings must be increased or SS collapses faster.

      Union janitors making $12 demand increases to $15 or $20. They aren’t working for near minimum wage, dammit! All wages increase, not just minimum wage. All costs increase. All prices increase. All wage increases are lost to inflation.

      People living on savings lose their asses as inflation eats up their savings much, much faster than they had planned.

      Interest rates must increase to match inflation or they are meaningless. Business borrowing dries up causing more unemployment.

      So what is the result? No gain to wage earners because prices increased an amount commensurate with wage increases. Unemployment increases. Taxes increase. Interest rates increase. Savings values crash.

      And all of that is just the start…

      • locke n load says:

        just the start indeed.
        “Interest rates must increase to match inflation or they are meaningless. Business borrowing dries up causing more unemployment.”
        sort of like exactly whats been happening since they raised the minimum wage a couple years back? Real interest earnings are actually negative, vedry negative, and have been since the debacle of 2007. That partially explains the money headed to the nonsensical stock market and reinflating the bubble.

      • BigJimTX says:

        Are unemployment benefits tied to COLA? Or is it only SS benefits? If unemployment increases as well as the benefit amount, does that also increase the unemployment liability that employers have to pay?

        • R.D. Walker says:

          There is a lot of variability on that state to state but ultimately, yes, payments increase with inflation. So do liability payments.

      My dad, born in Deer River, Minnesota in 1909, told of walking to school in the Duluth area when it was possible to just step over the power lines. I’m not sure if that’s power lines or phone lines but I’ll bet it has happened more than once before.

  14. jacksonsdad says:

    Anybody seen the ‘Enhanced’ SOTU? I’m not posting the link… it should be easy to find if you have the stomach (whitehouse.gov blah blah blah). Visual aids for the lies the lying liar told last night.

    On a related note… this whole chapter is a new low in the already sad state of the running dog media. We knew they were biased. We knew they could be incurious… even intentionally oblivious when it came to shedding light on the BS that is The Obama Administration. But the way they are now simply repeating word-for-word the WH talking points/ vigorously promoting such an ideologically extreme agenda… it’s shameful.

    These tired ideas have already proven to be poisonous… and the rhetoric??? It’s WAAAAAY past ‘tired’ and entering ‘Laughable’ territory. I mean… is he really still using the phrase “balanced approach”? Really???

    I’m no fan of using The Lords’ name in vain but GODDAMMIT… these sumbitches have got to go. It’s one thing to stack the deck but… when the ‘referees’ are blocking and tackling for the other team it’s time to refuse to participate in the game altogether. period.

    Do you use IE and are getting script errors? That is a script error that some YouTube videos cause in IE. There is nothing the I can do about the error other than stop posting videos. It is the problem of the video hosting site.. Best to not antagonize yourself and go to Tools-> Internet Options -> Advanced tab and check both items which say “Disable Script debugging…”. That should fix the problem for you.

    Or you could stop using the bloatware that is IE. Your call. :-)

      Special favors are pretty common in the ‘more than equal’ ranks of the commies in Beijing. Our airline only allowed 4 bags and required a 2+ hr inspection process for the flight back to the States on China Air. We skated thru with 12 and never saw security,lol. Helps when the wifes Aunt is a ‘captain’ of sorts in the security detail :)

  19. notamobster says:

    I just went to the half-empty IGA store about 8 miles from my house. I asked why the store is so empty. Sales have declined since the new Super Wal-Mart opened on the other side of town. They were doing okay til the owner got Cancer and has used all the profits to pay for her treatment. She can’t buy more groceries til she figures out how to make enough money to restock the shelves and pay to stay alive.

    Rather than firing people, she started closing the store on Sunday. The sign showing the new hours says:

    “We will be closed on Sunday, so our employees can spend time with their families. Please feel free to find a suitable church to attend.”

  20. notamobster says:

    I rented a couple of movies over the last few days. Here is a brief review:

    Savages: Manage-a-trois runs afowl of Mexican cartel and takes the fight to the cartel. Brad was way off base on his review of this flick (but then, I wasn’t watching for insights, but entertainment). This was a very watchable movie. 3.5 out of 5 stars

    Outpost 2: Nazi hunter meets up with scientist. Both are searching for an old Nazi. This was a low-budget, highly-entertaining film. The Nazi’s have been working on technology since the 40′s (in Paraguay) to create super-human soldiers and immortality. It turns out they accomplished it, but they kinda had to become mutants to do so. I liked the idea, so I figured I’d get it when I was bored and had nothing else to do. I’m glad I did. Good flick. 4 out of 5. (with a cheesy caveat – a few scenes used cheesy, low budget 80′s style lightning bolts.)

  21. notamobster says:

    That “all-out brawl” at South High in Minneapolis got coverage from virtually every local outlet. At WCCO-TV, Esme Murphy reports:

    “Twelve people complained that they had been sprayed with mace. Police at the scene said they had to use chemical agent to get the crowd under control as they were being pelted with objects as they tried to break things up. …

    [One student] said the fights were over pride. ‘I know it’s a pride thing between Muslims and black people,’ she said. ‘They want their pride back for something. I don’t know.’ She also said ‘boys were hitting girls’ and that some people were lying on the floor, with their hands over their heads, in surrender.…

    The fight, students say, was the result of long-simmering tensions between the 8 percent of students who are Somali Americans and the 20 percent who are African Americans.”

    Wouldn’t the Somalis be the only “African-Americans” in this equation?

    • BigJimTX says:

      Almost like calling Mia Love an African American. She is black and her parents are from Haiti. She would be a Haitian American, but the racist left media calls her an African American because of the color of her skin.

  22. BrunDawg says:

    Chicago Trib story:
    For the last six years, the volunteer fire department of rural Holley, N.Y., has raised money for new equipment by sponsoring a hunting contest to see who could shoot the fattest squirrel.

    “Children as young as 12 years old are being encouraged to participate and kill with guns. When I saw that, I just felt our culture is going the wrong direction,” explained Julie Gallagher, who teaches Reiki massage and sends healing energy through pecans to sick or wounded squirrels around the lake where she hikes in Austin.

    “I noticed that when I would give an injured squirrel Reiki, the squirrel would heal much more quickly than humans,” Gallagher blogged on her squirrelplanet.org website. “I realized that the mind of a squirrel is free and without concerns. Therefore there are no obstacles to their experiencing complete healing.”

    • R.D. Walker says:

      I think it is evident that Julie Gallagher’s mind is very comparable to those of squirrels; free and without cognition.

      • R.D. Walker says:

        Healing energy through pecans or kinetic energy through bullets… it’s all good.

        • notamobster says:

          I still have a hard time believing these people exist, even though I have met them.

          I am ashamed that Austin is our state capitol. This is what happens when you allow hippies to breed.

          • R.D. Walker says:

            James was flipping me shit that Iowa went narrowly blue in November. Yeah, I am ashamed, but I pointed out that there are more Obama voters in the greater Austin area than in all of Iowa combined. Miles and miles of Texas but they ain’t all the same.

            • BigJimTX says:

              The San Antonio mayor is going to run for President one day. He’s a worthless lib piece of garbage. You look around Texas and all of the big metro areas (and the Rio Grande valley) are blue. The other 95% of the state is red. Only problem lies in that the immigrants are leaving blue states (and Mexico obviously).

  23. notamobster says:

    I got a new HP laptop today. My little brother works at Walmart. With his discount and the clearance price, it was $270. Sweet.

    • R.D. Walker says:

      Nothing like that new blogging smell, is there?

    • Jim22 says:

      Here is something you need to know about HP and Compac laptops. Look at the bottom of the computer. That’s where the intake for the cooling fan is and it’s also where the feet are that keep the computer up off the counter enough to allow the cooling fan to get air. If the feet are almost non-exisent you need to make sure the cooling fan can breathe.

      You can do that by propping up the computer, front or back, by getting an external cooling platform to set the computer on, or by making sure the fan system is clean.

      I know because I burned up a six month old HP laptop. They get hot when you work them hard. That means looking at videos.

      Take care of the new baby and it will be good for a long time. Me, I bought a Toshiba to replace it.

      • notamobster says:

        Yeah, I learned that the hard way. My last laptop was a HP. Killed it by overheating too many times.

  24. notamobster says:

    Yep. Not sure I’m gonna like windows 8, but I’ll make do. All I do is Revo and facebook anyway.

  25. Greg B says:

    So, here is the e-mail I received from that scrunt Frankenstein.

    Dear Greg:

    Thank you for contacting me to share your opposition to assault weapons legislation. I respect your opinion on this important issue and welcome the opportunity to provide my point of view.

    Mass shootings are a serious problem in our country, and I have watched this problem get worse and worse over the 40 years I have been in public life. From the 1966 shooting rampage at the University of Texas that killed 14 people and wounded 32 others, to the Newtown massacre that killed 20 children and 6 school teachers and faculty, I have seen more and more of these killings. I have had families tell me that they no longer feel safe in a mall, in a movie theater, in their business, and in other public places, because these deadly weapons are so readily available. These assault weapons too often fall into the hands of grievance killers, juveniles, gangs, and the deranged.

    I recognize that the Second Amendment provides an individual right to bear arms, but I do not believe that right is unlimited or that it precludes taking action to prevent mass shootings. Indeed, in the same Supreme Court decision that recognized the individual right to bear arms, District of Columbia v. Heller, the Court also held that this right, like other constitutional rights, is not unlimited. That is why assault weapons bans have consistently been upheld in the courts, both before and after the Heller decision. I believe regulation of these weapons is appropriate.

    Once again, thank you for your letter. Although we may disagree, I appreciate hearing from you and will be mindful of your thoughts as the debate on this issue continues. If you have any additional comments or questions, please do not hesitate to contact my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3841.

    Sincerely yours,

    Dianne Feinstein
    United States Senator

    The Plan is for a $9.00 minimum wage to create unemployment among the low skilled. The is Zero’s voting base, and he will convince them in their misery (he and the Democrats caused), that more government spending on the “middle class” is required to “fix” it.

    Hello JacksonsDad! Repeat, Hello JD!
    If you get this message in time, call me. There’s a chance I might be putting down in your general area tomorrow night. That being Saturday.
    Dinner, Breakfast, or Lunch…would be geat to see the legendary ‘call-a-cab’ afficionado again, if only for a brief visit.

    Let me know sir

  28. R.D. Walker says:

    What’s wrong with this story?

    A global video gaming company that funded a search for dozens of World War II-era British fighter jets in Myanmar says none of the legendary planes are buried in the Southeast Asian country.

    Aviation enthusiasts hunting for the lost planes believe as many as 140 Spitfires were hidden in crates in pristine condition in three Myanmar locations.

  29. BrunDawg says:

    Is cash getting crappier? Just an observation. Lately any bills that I have recieved have been terribly worn and torn. ATMs seem to still have crisp bills but everthing else is trashed.

  30. notamobster says:

    Okay my friends, I need your help.

    I have an opportunity to trade my snowmobile for a couple rifles, a shotgun, and some ammo. They are a Raptor .270, a Sears & Roebuck bolt action 16 ga, and a Type 99 7.7mm Arisaka with numbers matching, dust cover, and non-decommissioned (still has the Emperor’s markings). All are well taken care of. There is ammo for the shotgun and the .270.

    What I need is help with ammo for the Type 99. Is it available? I can’t find any. Also, have any of you ever owned one? It’s obviously a good rifle, it belonged to a Japanese soldier during WWII. What are the +/- of the system?

    • R.D. Walker says:

      http://www.buffaloarms.com/Detail.aspx?PROD=159945

      It is the same as .303 British, by the way.

      http://www.cabelas.com/catalog/product.jsp?productId=1209633

      Ain’t cheap but probably available.

    • BigJimTX says:

      I own one, can’t tell you anything other than a relative worth. The emporer’s seal makes it worth about $400 I think. Mine is ground off and worth about $80. No ammo I have ever seen anywhere. Let me know if you find anything.

      • notamobster says:

        Thanks, RD. Are all of the specs the same as .303?

        Have you ever shot the thing, Jim?

        I’m not leaning toward it yet, because the value of all arms and ammo is about half of the value of my sled. Just doing my due diligence… or having you guys do it for me. :-)

        • BigJimTX says:

          Never shot it. Might try the .303 though. With a lead sled and a string. If your sled runs then it sounds like you might be on the short end of that one. JMHO. I don’t pretend to be an expert, except for when I play one on tv.

        • R.D. Walker says:

          “Are all of the specs the same as .303?”

          I have always been given to understand they are totally interchangeable. I am, however, no expert.

    • Ray Davies says:

      If I remember correctly I reformed the 7.7 brass out of 308 brass. The 308 (30 cal) bullets can be loaded and do shoot rather well. the Jap 7.7 is one of the strongest actions made and the safety is also good. (push and twist). I believe modern ammo is available at the larger sporting goods stores (sheels,Cabella’s) and I’m sure Norma makes it. Have a look at the Brownell’s or MidwayUSA pages. As I remember I traded it off for a .303 Brit, and from there who knows where things went

    Are you all ready for some of that new banner smell, or should we keep ol’ Ben?

    bulletheader

    I think this one looks pretty cool but it might give the impression we are just a gun blog.

    Thoughts?

    Also, I can make banners cycle so you get different ones with different loads. Would you like that or is it just a little too frickin’ cute?

    • TN-Cat says:

      I’ll miss Ben, but this is good.

    • R.D. Walker says:

      You know I like Ben, but I stuck him up there before the election and I was kind of thinking that the election would decide the “if you can keep it” question. I was hoping for the affirmative but we elected the negative.

      • TN-Cat says:

        We didn’t elect the negative, they did. Ass is still stinging from it. But I believe come 2016, Their asses will be in melt down mode, not ours.

        Elections have consequences,they can deal with it.

        • notamobster says:

          I like that. Changing banners might be cool. Try it. If you don’t like it, pick one.

          • R.D. Walker says:

            I think we will try the rotating banner sometime soon. Same logo on the left every time but with changing pictures on the right.

        • BigJimTX says:

          I love the new banner. However, when tied together with the name, it seems like we are taking a more forward approach. While time might dictate such things, the casual observer may misinterpret the nuance involved. I think it might seem less gun blog and more armed insurrection.

          Just my first impression. Or maybe it’s my mood or my whiskey. I can’t tell at times.

          • R.D. Walker says:

            Yeah, I think that too. I don’t really want first time users to think this site advocates armed revolution. Maybe I will hold off.

            I am glad y’all like it, however. :-)

            • notamobster says:

              I didn’t give it much thought at the time, but the armed insurrection thing did pop into my head when I first saw that banner. Thanks for pointing it, BigJim.

              We definitely don’t want newcomers to think that’s what we’re about.

          • Uke says:

            Fair point. I hadn’t thought of it until you mentioned it, but I suppose it pays to be careful.

            I just liked the banner instinctively. You know… ‘cuz I like guns and ammo. ^_^

        • RevoGirl says:

          Of couse I thought that with the 2008 election…and look what happened.

    • Uke says:

      The proposed banner is awesome, in all seriousness. Very eye-catching. Virgin brass is sexy. :)

  33. Jim22 says:

    I like Ben. It’s a good image of him. Doesn’t make him look like a fat, dissolute old man like so many do.

    I wouldn’t mind doing more gun stories but the other Jim has a good point.

    For me, stick with Ben. Maybe trade off with quotes and images from other founding fathers on rotation.

  34. notamobster says:

    Wow. Couple of slow days for traffic on the Revo, huh?

  35. notamobster says:

    I come to play with my friends and end up playing with myself. :-)

  36. RJM says:

    How about pictures of the Declaration of Independance and Constitution for the rotating banner?

  37. R.D. Walker says:

    Any Facebook junky on here no how to come up with a thumbnail other than the snake for Facebook shares for posts without a graphic? I sure as hell don’t.

  38. notamobster says:

    You seem to have attached that logo to the header it was on, whereas the snake is it’s own separate upload….

    “http://therealrevo.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/rattlesnake2.jpg” shows up when you run your cursor over the snake, but not when you run it over the logo.

    • R.D. Walker says:

      Click on the snake, it is an Easter egg.

      Both images are loaded the same way. The snake links to a separate file.

  39. notamobster says:

    When I click the snake, it goes to the file page for that image. Their is no file page for the logo image. I click and it does nothing.

    • R.D. Walker says:

      Yeah, there is no link on the logo. The other one goes to a completely different image. It isn’t the same snake.

      All that means is that I added an [a href] link to the snake and I didn’t to the logo. Just a hot link.

      I think that is the default photo selected by FB and there must be a setting somewhere on that site to change it.

  40. notamobster says:

    If the story being shared has a pic, it gives you the option of the snake or the pic in the story. Can you try attaching [a href] to the logo for me. I’d be in your debt for…. at least the next 15 minutes. :-)

    It’s weird. When I insert a revo link in a comment on FB, it shows a really tiny banner of ben. Odd.

    Good morning Gentlemen, and Ladies,
    This morning while practicing my cc draw my skin started getting as little on the sore side, The muzzle was raking the side. I noticer th KYDEX mouse pad on the desk and slipped it in the pants between the skin and holster. This not only gave the skin a bit of extra protection, I plan on using this later on when the skin gets sweaty, In no way did this effect the draw but iy may have increased the speed since I did not have the extra drag. Keep up the good works folks, remember the government only haqs enough ammo to kill each of us 5 times over.

  43. RJ says:

    haven’t you heard, it was just a error they didn’t really mean to order all that ammo… not really.

    Ive read the companies they are ordering from are shell companies in a lot of cases, looks like payola to me…

  44. Ray Davies says:

    It’s my tax money paying for all that ammo and damnit I want to see it. We see it,we know it’s real, we know it’s real,we can do something about it. (one way or another)
    Besides, when it hits the fan we’ll need to resupply our ammo from some where.

    Re: a previous post. I finally got a copy of “Unintended Consequences”. It wasn’t at my public library, but my state has an inter-library loan system. Maybe yours does too. It came from a community college in OKC. It has 860 pages, so it may take awhile.

    Crowder has a great video on Detroit and their 50 plus years as part of the “Model City Program” , the “leader” in central urban planning.

    I just got “Al Jazeera American” channel to pop up on my YouTube “Recommended Channels” list. Top of the list, in fact.

    The recommended channels list, in my experience, is created via an algorithm that has historically done a fair job at putting video producers on there based on what other videos you watch, like, and comment on. Now, I don’t know about you, but I the amount of Arab interest videos I watch on YouTube is pretty much summarized by those where I watch some jihadi get blown to bits by one of our guys. And even those videos aren’t many at all.

    /Ricky Ricardo: “Youtube, you got some ‘splainin’ to do…”

  49. notamobster says:

    Yeah, no algorithm, there, Uke. I got it, too. It’s a paid sponsorship, I’m sure.

    On a happier note, I just started digging into “Enjoy the Decline” today. Halfway through, and I’m liking it. It’s rote for most Revoistas, but still worth the money, if for no other reason than it helps one Real American live life on his own terms! I’ll support that any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    Immediately thought of returning vets with mobility issues who still want to get out and hunt in the woods…

    There’s even a $25 sales fee on bicycles worth $500 or more that would raise $1 million over 10 years, a nod to motorists who complain that bicyclists don’t pay their fair share.

    Getting screwed by the green monster. Heh.

    A woman walks into an accountant’s office and tells
    Him that she needs to file her taxes.
    The accountant says, “Before we begin, I’ll need to
    Ask you a few questions.”He gets her name, address,
    Social security number, etc. And then asks,”What’s
    Your occupation?”
    “I’m a Lady of the night,” she says.
    The accountant is somewhat taken aback and says, ”
    Let’s try to rephrase that.”
    The woman says, “OK, I’m a high-end call girl”.
    “No, that still won’t work. Try again.”
    They both think for a minute; then the woman says,
    “I’m an elite chicken farmer.”
    The accountant asks, “What does chicken farming have
    To do with being a prostitute?”
    “Well, I raised a thousand little peckers last year.”
    “Chicken Farmer it is.”*
