10:10 – Barbara is off to the gym and supermarket. Usually, she goes to the gym MWF and does a supermarket stop on Friday, but this Friday she’s headed down to Winston to run errands.

I decided to re-read the Home series by Chris Weatherman, AKA Angery American. I read them piecemeal as they came out, but I decided that binge-reading them from start to finish was worthwhile. They’re not great literature by any means, but they’re a lot better than most of the PA series out there. It’s interesting how many PA novelists live around here. William R. Forstchen (One Second After) lives an hour or so down the road in Black Mountain, NC. Chris and his wife and daughters live in the Blue Ridge Mountains, an hour or so SW of here, on the edge of the Pisgah National Forest, not far from Forstchen. Franklin Horton, another good PA novel series author, lives an hour or so WNW of here, in far SW Virginia. If I had the time, I’d write a series myself.

  1. If I had the time

    Hmmph. A lame excuse. What were you doing between midnight and five this morning? Just wasting time, I’ll bet.

  2. “What were you doing between midnight and five this morning? Just wasting time, I’ll bet.”

    I plead guilty. I’ve discovered that if one needs to write something for any length of time, ya gotta do what Jerry Pournelle does and set up a pseudo- monk’s cell somewhere and RUTHLESSLY cut off any distractions. Like net access, phones, other reading material, radio, etc. This past week has been, as Jerry says, devoured by locusts, what with the usual piles of scut work around the house and yard and assorted sudden family activities between Moh-ree-all and Maffachufetts.

    Another sunny, blue skies day; hope to get a bunch of outside stuff done.

  3. It was mentioned here several times recently how super-tight the security is at Disney World, so how the fuck does something like this happen???

    http://www.clickorlando.com/news/deputies-still-searching-for-missing-2-year-old-boy-dragged-into-water-by-alligator-at-disney

    Toddlers can play in the water where gators live??? There are so many fails in this story it beggars the imagination. Are there any parents out there who KEEP AN EYE on their toddlers when at these zoos and resorts and theme parks???

  4. I am sure that Disney will provide the family a handsome payoff despite their obvious negligence. Yeah, I had little kids and they can be gone in a flash IF you are not vigilant.

  5. “Yeah, I had little kids and they can be gone in a flash IF you are not vigilant.”

    Ditto, and yeah, I get that; do today’s parents get that? A nanosecond and the kid has disappeared or is shoving a ballpoint pen into an electrical outlet or strangling his little sister with the phone cord…wait strike that; the USB cable.

    The story had the 4-year-old in a playpen and the two-year-old out and about in the water; WTF??? And if it’s a 15-second response time for security to get to a violent incident, what about getting to stuff like this?

  6. Every time we’ve been to DW, we stayed at one of the Disney properties, like Coronado Springs. Most of them have large lagoons. I’ve seen gators every time. I guess they don’t shoot or poison them for fear of libturd SJWs causing a 0.0001% drop in income.

  7. Not to worry, I guess; that toddler’s presumed death is really the fault of the Republicrat fascists and Twelve Years of Reagan-Bush and cis-hetero white males everywhere, who are, de facto, rayciss, misogynist, anti-Semitic, triumphalist, xenophobic, homophobic and nativist. Did I miss any?

  8. With all the discussion of Disney, it’s probably worth remembering that Disney owns 144000 acres in central FL. IIRC, that’s bigger than Rhode Island. They have over 55 miles of flood control canals. The “7 seas Lagoon” was the largest man made lake and earthmoving project in the world when it was built. They have their own power generation and sewage treatment. In other words it’s BIG. And it’s built in the middle of a swamp. They could never do the level of terraforming they did in any of the last couple of decades. And yes, they must be VERY careful how they deal with gators, because the news would be full of “Disney slaughters native wildlife” stories. I’ve seen a few gators, mostly in areas away from people. It’s Florida, and FL has gators. They eat dogs and kids in housing developments and golf courses. If not for the Big D, this would be a one day, mid page story.

    I’m horrified by this story. I’m shocked and surprised. But at the end of the day, part of the attraction of the setting is that it is surrounded by nature. Gators are part of that. You don’t swim in the swamp at night.

    Oh and ‘who needs a gun at Disney?’ That devastated father did.

    nick

  9. 1. Gators tend to hunt at night.
    2. There are gators in every pond / lake in Florida.
    3. I don’t know for sure, but I’m willing to assume that Disney has posted lots of warning signs near every body of water on their very large expanse of property.

  10. No, no, no; youse guys don’t get it; this has to be somehow dumped off on the aforementioned standard-issue perpetrators; there’s gotta be a way to spin this that way. Not the kid’s fault, not the parents’ fault, and not D’s faulty, as the company bends over backwards to kiss ass for every possible group of grievance whores and pimps.

    As with Orlando; can’t blame it on the Hispanics, the gays, the club itself, the city, the culture, none of that; it’s those goddamned Republicans and Catholics. Oh, and the guns, of course, and once again none of the fuckers could even get the basic nomenclature right.

    So let’s repeal the 2A immediately, tax ammo and firearms sky-high, drive the manufacturers outta business, and begin the extermination of Republicans, Catholics, white males, straight males, etc., etc. Good luck with that, assholes. Molon labe.

  11. Harry “fukstik” Reid:

    “You can go down to a gun show at the local convention center and come away with a fully automatic assault rifle, without a background check…”

    This is beyond a lie. How can people believe a fukstik like this?

  12. Here’s a summary of the pussy NY Daily News reporter who was “terrified” and “suffered PTSD” when he fired an AR-15 (also in fully automatic according to him. You can go to many gun shops and fire fully automatic weapons. Of course, you can’t just buy one.

    My favorite comment at the bottom:

     

    this is the new american male, taught by progressives to accept world gov’t control. he will gladly allow himself to be shaved smooth and used as a female by bearded men. he will cry rather than defend his way of life and culture. there is no reason to be importing islam and this is the kind of western “male” that is enabling it. effeminate sissy.hewill be one of the first to be disposed of after the changeover to UN control.

    Allows himself to be shaved smooth and used as a female by bearded men…
    LOLOLOLOLOL!

  13. As a bearded American, I am offended by your remarks.

    Where’s my safe space?

  14. I think the FBI has now raided and arrested all of the Orlando murderers kin. This is called “asleep at the wheel”, “CYA” and “20/20 hindsight”. Geeze.

  15. As we all know by now, the bigger and more outrageous the lie, the easier it is retailed to the befuddled pixel-obsessed masses, assuming constant repetition.

    And the Feebies once again cover themselves in glory for having not only done nothing much, but actually having exacerbated the potential for this mass murdering piece of shit and others to follow. Their history going back to the beginning is a sorry mess of mistakes, clusterfucks, and hammering on low-hanging-fruit targets. Homeland Insecurity, the TSA, the CIA, all likewise. And all of them organizations hatched by the Almighty State.

    That commenter at the NY Daily Nooz site had several things dead to rights, among them being the continuing wussification and pussification of Western males, who get chased down by Hispanic rioters half their size and beaten silly, and German kids who allow themselves to be slapped around by musloid scum while their women are assaulted, raped and murdered. Waffen SS guys must be spinning in their graves.

    The other thing that commenter had right was how once the commies and/or sharia musloids come to power in the West, the very first derps to kneel before the scimitars…wait, strike that: the dull kitchen knives and flamethrowers, will be sappy progs and SJW types. After they’ve been sodomized, of course.

  16. It was mentioned here several times recently how super-tight the security is at Disney World, so how the fuck does something like this happen???

    Normally, alligators are scared of people, but dopey tourists at Disney World ignore the signs and feed the wildlife.

    Also, several locals have become YouTube starts swimming into off limits areas around the water such as the closed River Country and Discovery Island attractions. The security focus around the lagoon is probably focused on preventing those publicity stunts as well as keeping people out of the abandoned machinery that used to generate waves for the Polynesian Hotel in the 70s.

  17. Two comments, the government would only be interested in the Disney tragedy if the alligator had used a AR15.

    Second do we honestly expect the FBI to be able to stop a terrorist when it not even able to arrest Hillary despite the veritable mountain of evidence?

  18. “See, I Told You So #2: Democrats Hate Us More Than They Hate the Terrorists”
    http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2016/06/15/see_i_told_you_so_2_democrats_hate_us_more_than_they_hate_the_terrorists

    “Department of Homeland Security: “Right-Wingers Pose Same Threat As Islamic Extremists.” I led this program yesterday reminding you yet again of my opinion that I think has been confirmed over and over again, that the American left, the Democrat Party, progressives, liberals, hate us. And I mean hate. It isn’t dislike. It is an irrational hate. They hate us. By us, I mean Republicans, conservatives, traditionalists, Christians, they hate us. ”
    http://dailycaller.com/2016/06/14/dhs-secretary-right-wingers-pose-same-threat-as-islamic-extremists/

    I’ve been noticing this for quite a while now, being a white male who is married to a Cherokee woman. I can just imagine how much they would hate me if I was married to a white woman.

  19. Right wingers pose the same threat? No, we don’t. The last right wing terrorist attack in the US was the Oklahoma City bombing. The right wing threat they are worried about is far worse than that. We have the First Amendment right to criticize them in speech and in print. Not to mention how annoyed they are that the Republicans control the House and Senate. The Republicans don’t do much with that control, but at least we have it. The Republicans also control most state governments. The big blue state governments of California, New York and Illinois are all worse financial shape than West Virginia.

  20. Mr. jim C wins the innernet today! Very well put, sir!

    “The last right wing terrorist attack in the US was the Oklahoma City bombing.”

    No chit, but that’s what they keep screaming about anytime someone mentions musloid terrorism and atrocities: “But–but—but—Timothy McVeigh!” The lone white homeland wack job and combat vet. And we STILL don’t have the full story on that caper and who else was involved and to what extent the government scrambled the intel, before, during and after. Then they clamor that a few bad apples among the musloids, etc., etc. But what, 95% of the massacres and atrocities committed by anyone, even just here in the U.S., let alone worldwide, have been done by musloid scum, who favor targeting unarmed civilians in “gun-free” zones.

    It ain’t Catholics, Methodists, Buddhists or Jews blowing people away at health-care centers and nightclubs. Or flying jets into buildings. Or cutting peoples’ heads off with dull kitchen knives and burning them alive in cages for innernet amusement. Or treating their women worse than animals.

    So as far as I’m concerned, any Westerners who keep apologizing for, and defending, musloids, are as guilty of the terror and the atrocities and are to be dealt with accordingly when the time comes. And it will.

    Those of us on the right will present a valid and bona-fide threat one of these days, probably when we are unable to take any more of their shit and when the Hurt kicks in good and hard for most peeps. And hopefully before I and most others on this board are way too old to help out or croaked.

    Here’s what typical Murkan derp-herd cretins do in these situations, pretty much just like in Orlando and Paris: stand around and wait to catch a fucking bullet:

  21. I’m gonna pass on this movie.

    lol! H8tr! You must *love* and *embrace* the Cait crowd.

    I wonder if the fish will swim to Sweden for the final cut, or just filet itself. Or pussy out like Cait. Grow some boobs, but keep the cock.

  22. Wasn’t there a rumor about Bruce changing his mind and going back to the hated male thing? Haven’t heard anything about it since.

    As OFD has yammered about countless times before here and elsewhere, since the 1980s; give ’em an inch, they’ll take a mile. Camel’s nose under the tent, etc., etc.

    Totally legal birth control.

    No-fault divorce.

    Sexual information and entertainment widespread publicly and now inundating all media 7×24.

    Anti-discrimination laws. (who could disagree with THAT?)

    “Civil unions.”

    Homosexual “marriage.”

    Growing “acceptance” and approval of transgenderism, and surgery even for little children.

    Next up:

    Legal incest.

    Bestiality likewise.

    Necrophilia likewise.

    Too wacky? Crazy? We’ll never do any of that stuff?? I’m a lunatic? Yeah, OK.

  23. surgery even for little children.

    That is pure and simple child abuse. The only case that I can see is the reduction of F+ cup breasts.

    Next up:

    You forgot polygamy and polyamory.

  24. Oh yeah, that’s right! You can get in on the ground floor out there with that stuff! Make zillions! Hundreds of thousands of North Murkans can’t WAIT to get it on with stiffs!

    Just make sure that EBT cards will work as well as cash. (rumors abound lately concerning late and very late EBT card disbursements; gummint testing the waters? Simple bureaucratic lassitude? Computer glitches or hacks?)

  25. Geez, I favor no restrictions on most of those things. Not my business.

  26. OFD, you left out reducing the age of consent, whether gradually or all at once.

    Bill to take charge of that task force.

  27. It’s the 99.99999% of Muslims who give a bad name to the other one.

  28. Does that include Zombie Strippers?

    When you mention Zombie Strippers, you’re supposed to include a link.

    (In case you’re tempted to watch it for the entertainment value, don’t bother. It’s as bad as you’d expect from the title, director, and cast. I watched it from curiosity, partly to see if it was as bad as expected (it was worse) and partly to make a list of just what they did badly, from a film-maker’s perspective.

  29. It’s the 99.99999% of Muslims who give a bad name to the other one.

    You need a couple more 9s there to properly isolate the one good one. Or else acknowledge that there are over a hundred good Muslims, and I doubt you want to stick your neck out that far, lest it get chopped.

    Funny thing: not long ago, there were “about one billion Muslims”. Then that became “more than a billion”, then “well over a billion”, then “almost one and a half billion”, then “1.6 billion”, then “a quarter of the world’s population” (which would be about 1.8B), and most recently “almost two billion”. This numeric inflation took place over maybe three years, and the rate of growth is implausible even considering conversion and breeding rate similar to rodents with insufficient predators.

    Why, it’s almost enough to make one think CAIR and other islamic advocacy groups are … are … are lying. But that’s impossible, of course.

  30. Damned Fire keyboard. I clicked the dot and the nine seven times, but only five showed up.

  31. I got fed up today with my sister and niece filling my FakeBook page with Cankles and Obuttwad lies so I filled them up with Rush Limbaugh’s “All Content” RSS Feed for the last two days. I doubt they will bother to read, but I feel a bit better. There is no hope for people who vote based on the female gender or black skin color. I pity my poor conservative BIL.

  32. There is no hope for people who vote based on the female gender or black skin color.

    But you’re the racist or sexist.

  33. The hyperbolic statistics regarding the number of musloids in the world is pretty funny, and somewhat like the older statistical lying concerning the number of homosexuals in the U.S. And in world history; everybody was gay and now everybody IS gay, was how it goes. And when you pointed out that HIV/AIDs was transmitted mainly by wildly promiscuous homosexual men, they would shout “Ryan White!” and that one nun that got it from a botched blood transfusion.

    Now it’s two billion musloids and since there are so many and because it’s a “religion of peace,” we should all just roll the fuck over for the Greater Caliphate and sharia law. I tend to believe Matt Bracken; it’s gonna get wicked ugly in the next two or three generations when the children come of age who came of the mass invasion of musloids into Germany and France and England. But there sure ain’t two billion; maybe a billion, tops, along with a billion ROMAN Catholics, not counting the other sorts of Catholics. We learned the Crusades didn’t work so we need to try my solution, outlined on this board previously and tediously. GTFO of their shit-hole countries and establish Fortress America, in a nutshell.

    As for giving up my guns; molon labe, baby.

  34. Moochelle and the kids off on another multi-country jaunt. Wonder how much this vacay will cost?

  35. and now everybody IS gay

    Yep. In fact, I’m so deep in the closet that it’s a secret even from myself.

    As for giving up my guns; molon labe, baby.

    Alas, all of my firearms were lost in a tragic boating accident on the Sacandaga Reservoir.

  36. “Wonder how much this vacay will cost?”

    Probably several million, for the transportation, accommodations, security, luxury restaurants, shopping expeditions, etc., etc. Like all the previous jaunts. The obvious intent is to not only continue ripping us off for this stuff, but jacking it up by an order of magnitude before the shit-head finally leaves. Then: OFD is calling it now: the Klinton crime family will show the Obola crime family how to set up and hugely profit from phony foundations and other “nonprofits” by raking it in from countries and other organizations that hate our guts and would destroy us if they could. Larry left the dope dealing biz long ago when he saw the potential for this chit. And Cankles was right there with him the whole time; chiseling the Arkansas taxpayers for used underwear deductions was pretty lame. Now they’re on the way to raking in billions, and why not let Hussein Soetero and Moochelle in on the scam.

    “In fact, I’m so deep in the closet that it’s a secret even from myself.”

    Uh-oh….trivializing the wonders of the wondrous gay life in a jocular and sarcastic fashion; yet another micro-aggression, shame on you!

    “Alas, all of my firearms were lost in a tragic boating accident on the Sacandaga Reservoir.”

    There’s a lot of that going around, I hear. Various bodies of wotta seem to have an
    irresistible attraction for firearms, which as we all know, are sentient objects with minds of their own, usually very violent and destructive, too. Mine left me high and dry when they fell head over heels in love with Lake Champlain, the sixth-largest lake in the U.S. and at least 400 feet deep in some areas.

  40. Interesting improvised defenses in a book I’m currently reading.

    Roofing shingles, still in their plastic, stacked like bricks, 2 rows deep. Makes a 7 foot high, 3 ft thick wall.

    It would be interesting to see what that would stop….

  41. “Roofing shingles, still in their plastic, stacked like bricks, 2 rows deep. Makes a 7 foot high, 3 ft thick wall.”

    Eerie. I’ve been working out the number and size of materials to build us a free-standing deck in the back yard facing the lake and the Adirondacks, from pallets, mainly. No defense to speak of, though.

    For this house, I’d replace both front and back doors, frames, strike plates, locks and hinges for starters, and then put ballistic sheets on the ground-floor windows, followed during the Bad Times by simply boarding them up inside and out. And as mentioned here before, drop some trees or telephone poles across the street in both directions; already setting up the rear perimeter fence with solar motion-detector floods, webcams, tripwire, trip flares, toe-poppers and mines.

    I dunno about roofing shingles stopping certain of the heavier calibers, though. Have to see it tested.

  42. I know exactly one liberal minded mooslem.

    It’s easy to identify liberal Muslim females. They don’t wear a hijab. At least that’s what one non-Hijab wearing Muslim female says in the Washington Post. I’d link the article, but I can’t be sure it’s the right article, because I’ve evidently used my free reads this month.

  43. I used to work with a Shi’ite mooslem guy. He was fairly easy to talk to, by mooslem standards. Then I met his wife, she was wearing an outfit that would get her arrested instantly in Tehran.

  44. Then I met his wife, she was wearing an outfit that would get her arrested instantly in Tehran.

    Was she showing skin above her ankles or wrists? Or worse, could you see her hair?

    The last time I was at the beach, I saw some presumably Muslim females. I hope they were offended by my wife’s display of the hair on her head and the plainly visible ankles and knees.

  45. “Incest? Between consenting adults?”

    Why not? It’s their business, not mine.

  46. “I dunno about roofing shingles stopping certain of the heavier calibers, though. Have to see it tested.”

    It really comes down to mass per square foot of surface area. A hundred pounds per square foot will stop most rifle bullets, short of maybe a .50BMG. That’s the equivalent of a foot thickness of sand or dirt, which mass about 100 pounds/ft^3, about 19″ of water provides the same mass, as does 8″ of concrete. I don’t know what the density of cotton candy is, but I’m pretty sure 100 pounds per square foot would be just as resistant to bullets.

  47. “This item cannot be shipped to your selected location.”

    Have I mentioned lately how much I hate New York?

  48. Have I mentioned lately how much I hate New York?

    Ship it to me and I will ship it on to you.

    Of course I may have to a quality control check before I send it on. On second thought, nope on the QC check. Never would be able to get that stuff packed up again.

  49. Ha. Thanks, Ray, but I don’t actually want one. It’s just that, once again, the fuckfaced clowns in Albany know how to live our lives better than we do.

  50. “It’s just that, once again, the fuckfaced clowns in Albany know how to live our lives better than we do.”

    You’re not alone; OFD has witnessed this little phenomenon in Montpeculiar, VT; Boston, MA; Saigon, RVN; and Bangkok (Krung Thep), Thailand over the decades. The bonzes in the capitals have our best interests at haht always, and their decisions are as divinely inspired. I note, however, that in several of those locations, at least in modern times, the assholes in the capitals bit off more than they could chew and insurrections arose in the hinterlands. But going back about 240 years, the Bostonians considered London to be the capital and decisions rendered from there did not cut the mustard anymore and we all know the result.

    What we need, chiefly, is more insurrection in the Murkan hinterlands. A thorough study of how the late Michael Collins achieved his successes in Ireland a century ago would be well worth someone’s time.

    Her dress was above the knee, most of her arms bared, and (shock! horror!) her hair was on display.
