Christmas came early yesterday. Snagged a can of 5.56, so we popped the Mini's cherry.
ruger-mini-14-ranch-5-56-nato-rifle-5801.jpg
(6.65 KiB) Downloaded 1 time
Nice ergonomics, almost no recoil, quite accurate with the iron sights [despite user error] out to 50 yards putting holes in Kamala's pretty face. Will set up some targets at the far end of the field tomorrow. Just dreamy to operate.

What I love maybe most about it: despite its rugged, old-timey looks, it's functionally the same as those scary black AR-15s the anti-gun pearl-clutchers are so frightened of. For excursions into my deep woods, I plan on carrying the Mini over my shoulder and the Beretta 92 on my hip. The former is as much a "weapon of war" (i.e., GI rifle derivative) as the AR, while the latter is nearly identical to the ubiquitous M9. I suppose "no one needs" either, but both will do quite nicely vs. 'enemy' cats or rattlers.

The GF also had a hoot shattering clays on stands with her "Cowboy Assault Rifle" -- the replica lever action with .38 sp. (The 5.56 just punched holes.) It'll likely take a while, if ever, for the gunophobes to suss out lever actions.

I'd take a bet about whether those electoral votes will go to trump.
https://apnews.com/article/election-202 ... fa8e7c3019
I'll take those bets!

You said "Biden won 306." I bet that's not true. I win! My source is your own link. Scroll down to the infographic, which says "All states must certify their votes before the Electoral College meets on Dec. 14". The graphic shows 26 states in grey, indicating they have not certified. Biden has not won 306 electoral votes.

You said "BTW Pennsylvania has already certified." I bet that's not final. I win again! "3 U.S. Code § 5.Determination of controversy as to appointment of electors" ...says the certification is not final until 6 days before December 14.

3 U.S. Code § 6 says multiple certifications are allowed: "...and if there shall have been any final determination in a State in the manner provided for by law of a controversy or contest concerning the appointment of all or any of the electors of such State, it shall be the duty of the executive of such State, as soon as practicable after such determination, to communicate under the seal of the State to the Archivist of the United States a certificate of such determination in form and manner as the same shall have been made; and the certificate or certificates so received by the Archivist of the United States...


Please do not base your betting on AP headlines. The AP will not accept culpability for your loses. They'll scroll down and point to all the ways they told you the truth, in the fine print. My favorite part of your link-- is the last line. About how Biden is recognized as the "apparent winner" of the election. Those are the AP's quote marks around "apparent winner", not mine. Apparent! haw!

Presenting "witnesses" to the friendly state legislature - a political branch with no power/jurisdiction over your legal case - is not how a serious lawyer pursues a serious legal claim.

Said thing is that I'm so jaded that I wouldn't really care if the election was stolen. I'm just marginally smug that the less horrible side may have been more clever in stealing the election. Sorry, but ever since 2000 and the Supreme Court "Selection", that's about as good as it gets in America.

Trump's hand was played out anyway. He was never going to reform health care, never overturn Obamacare, never build the wall, never rebuild American manufacturing, and never realign American economics with China. His goose was cooked at least two years ago. He would have been lame duck for four straight years.

I don't know if you realize, but Trump could still flip Pennsylvania and not win the election. Pennsylvania is 20 electoral votes. Biden won 306. The same as Trump won in 2016. If Trump flips Pennsylvania, Biden gets 286 electoral votes - which still means President Biden. Even if this bullshit panned out for Trump, he still loses. BTW Pennsylvania has already certified.

Those Judges are all closet activist Democrat judges. It is known.

Just wait till the cases get to the Supremes. It'll be President Trump until 2024, then Pence/Giuliani. You saw it here first.
I know you are just playing around, but seriously. The main thing that the Republicans accomplished with Trumps presidency was the unfettered movement of right wingers into the federal judiciary. I'm not necessarily even all that opposed to that, because there will be a wall in the federal government if weird social justice theories end up litigated in the near future.


But Seriously.


Is there REALLY a question about why Trump's lawsuits aren't being moved forward? This guy got 3 supreme court picks, and he got more in the appeals courts. This was McConnell's TOP PRIORITY during the last 4 years. This is not a complicated situation. If you are in denial, get the fuck over it, you are embarrassing.

15 percent more. 15%, 15%, 15% 15%, 15%... across the board.

This gap does not occur among absentee voters in other Minnesota counties. In those precincts the gaps vary & Trump often wins.

Except Oakland County Minnesota... where Biden wins by 18%, 18%, 18%, 18%, 18%, 18%... across the board. So, see, that's totally not 15% and certainly not worth also-investigating.

The political and media establishment is very concerned with 'Trust' these days.

They're worried that the stoopid masses might trust untrustworthy-Trump. Might distrust The Science on Covid and Vaccines and Global Warming and Transgenderizing children. God forbid you might distrust the election results As Seen On TV.

So the establishment flexes its authority and puts those boldface proclamations under YouTube videos. And between you and the tweet you're trying to read. They tell who you're Supposed To trust and distrust.

I find it disconcerting... that their soviet-style warning-labels and censorship... is so counter-productive against me trusting THEM.

Moldbug wrote something about the old, clunky totalitarian regimes-- Stalin, North Korea. He compared them to a 2-stroke engine which guzzles fuel, burns oil, rattles, spews pollution... but thumps-out raw power.

Seems like we're closer to the 2-stroke era than Moldbug thought. Lately, they're trying to control information and dissent-- and business-- and family gatherings-- like Stalin, not Steve Jobs.

I think it's a Dunning-Kruger problem. I just watched the video below... expecting it to be a reminder-montage of upsetting Covid-19 images. Maybe a new set of upsetting images.

Instead-- it was an open endorsement of scare-mongering... as a means to enforce the Correct opinion on potential dissenters. Two dump minions who don't realize how full of shit they sound. Zero self-awareness... that we distrust them because they have been dishonest. That our distrust is valid. That the burden is on them to EARN our trust, not impose their preferences-- about who were are Allowed to trust and distrust. They literally blather about Nazis and the Moon Landing and Viet Nam ... three things they are too young to have actually experienced. But they're sure they know better than you about Everything.



This morning I watched a clip of Rising with Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti. They rolled their eyes at Trump & his goofy lawyers... daring to go-against the pre-ordained annointment of Joe Biden.

Then I watched the entire public hearing in Pennsylvania. Trumps lawyers kept their goofyness dialed way down. Giuliani's black soul wasn't melting this time. He sounded capable and sane and TRUSTWORTHY. The local politicians seemed alright. The election-volunteer witnesses... were Excellent. An 80 year old woman who doesn't use digital devices-- who had trouble with a voting touch screen-- who asked a poll worker for help-- and was lied-to. A couple military veterans with experience in digital forensics and fraud. These people inspire more trust than the big corporate media who are determined to scoff at them. Trump phoned-in to the meeting. He was his usual self... charming in a clownish way... and very Un-authentic, Un-trustworthy... but blatantly so... like a reverse-psychology 'ironic' advertisment. The Trump Derangement Sufferers fixate on him... as a 1-dimensional cartoon. They try to reduce his voters to a 1-dimensional MAGA-hat-at-Walmart cartoon, too. But that only works on audiences who have no real exposure to normal 'Red State' Americans. They're decent neighbors, people you'd TRUST to look-after your kids. That's who the election is being stolen-from... not Trump. This claim about election fraud has been disputed. The AP has declared Joe Biden to be a nice man.

I disagree - if a restaurant served me those for breakfast - I'd feel that they were getting money for old rope.

An article s(k)ceptical of James Randi and his legacy - presented here for your perusal.

My own bias is perhaps showing - when even before reading I not particularly kindly inclined to it...

The UK is a case-study in fear-mongering about ICU capacity:
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/1 ... ents-show/
Hospital intensive care no busier than normal for most trusts, leaked documents show
Update seen by Telegraph shows capacity tracking as normal for beginning of November, with usual numbers of beds available
....
An NHS source said: "As you can see, our current position in October is exactly where we have been over the last five years."

The new data shows that, even in the peak of the Covid outbreak in April, critical care beds were never more than 80 per cent full.

Although there has been a reduction in surge capacity since the first wave, with the closure of the emergency Nightingale Hospitals, there is still 15 per cent spare capacity across the country – fairly normal for this time of year.
....
Commenting on the new data, Professor Carl Heneghan, director of the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine at the University of Oxford, said: "This is completely in line with what is normally available at this time of year. What I don't understand is that I seem to be looking at a different dataset to what the Government is presenting.
....
"Everything is looking at normal levels and free bed capacity is still significant, even in high dependency units and intensive care, even though we have a very small number across the board. We are starting to see a drop in people in hospitals.
....
But the leaked documents also show that no intensive care units are in Covid-19 Pandemic Critcon levels above two, and the majority are at 0, meaning they are operating as normal.

Critcon levels three and four are enacted during a "full stretch" and "emergency", when other wards need to be used for critical care. But 146 units out of 222 (65 per cent) are still at "Critcon 0", which is defined as "business as usual" by the NHS.

Just 29 units (13 per cent) are at "Critcon 1", defined as the usual impact of a bad winter. And only 19 (eight per cent) are at "Critcon 2", described as a "medium surge". Twenty-eight units have not reported their position.

Speaking to the science and technology committee on Monday, Prof Whitty accepted that the number of struggling hospitals was "small, and we want to keep it that way".
....
Dr Daniels also said figures show that far fewer patients now need ventilation (33.9 per cent as opposed to 72.1 per cent) and fewer are developing multi-organ failure.

The chief executive of NHS Wales said on Monday that the number of Covid-19 patients in Wales needing critical care is less than half what it was during the peak of the virus, despite rising cases.

Dr Andrew Goodall said early intervention by doctors, aided by increased testing and improvements with oxygen therapies, meant that demand on intensive care units and mortality rates were lower compared with April.

Nowt but a sniffle.
Are you _sure_ those 16,000 people are in Intensive Care _due_to_ Covid-19 ?

Rather than being admitted to Intensive Care for all-sorts-of reasons, but incidentally testing-positive for Covid-19.

Was this NZCity.co.nz article your source for that stat?
https://home.nzcity.co.nz/finance/artic ... ?id=322850

Please be advised-- that article is full of alarmism and omissions.

For one thing-- it portrays American hospitals as bursting at full capacity.

No mention, however, of the recent changes in how the available-capacity of ICU beds is counted.

If no staff is currently assigned to an ICU bed (because it's empty) then that bed is counted as not-existing.
Hospitalizations have been increasing, but the change is also due to revisions in how hospitals report the numbers.

MARC spokeswoman Amy Strange said that in October, the federal system used to report data removed pediatric ICUs from its total counts. Children make up only a tiny number of COVID-19 patients who need intensive care.

A month ago, Kansas City had a total of 994 intensive care unit beds, as listed on the MARC dashboard. The dashboard currently lists 534.

The ICU counts reinforce assertions by hospital doctors that area hospitals have been running low on space for patients as hospitalizations have risen.

Fewer standard hospital beds are listed by MARC as well. A total of 6,216 hospital beds were listed for the metro one month ago, according to MARC. The total listed on Wednesday stood at 5,806.

Strange said the numbers can vary somewhat from day to day based on when hospitals report. Bed numbers can also fluctuate due to staffing, and just over a third of area hospitals say they expect staffing shortages in the coming week.

MARC's hospital bed and ICU bed numbers reflect only those that have staff assigned to them, which aligns with federal reporting definitions.

Thanks all. I good night was had by all. A blue box from Tiffany and Co may have been involved.

I’m lucky to be in that position.

A couple of weeks ago I had dinner with 11 former co-workers all redundant from a mid size professional association. Two had just been made redundant from their new jobs in a double flip.

My youngish nephew has been told his hitherto high-flying progression in logistics with a big tobacco company was over. The role will be gone in March.

A good friend in engineering completed a difficult long term job in the countryside and then got canned with no redundancy for not wearing a hair net in the bakery. Company in financial difficulty and didn’t want to fork out a payout for a 55 year old.

My brother in law, who earns between 200-300K in HR/IR was told on Friday that someone new and cheaper was starting on Monday. Given his 7 weeks notice payment. No redundancy. 53 years old. Despite the wage he’s still renting as he missed the Sydney property boom.

All this in a couple of months. :bjarte:
