WA does all vote-by-mail. I hate it because of the obvious fraud problem potential, but it is what it is. I dropped off my ballot today. Looking more and more like the rampant Dem fraud will not be anywhere near close enough to overcome his margin of victory.
I went deer hunting this weekend. Had success, though it was the smallest 3-pt mule deer I’ve ever shot. On the positive side, it was a clean kill that dropped him almost in his tracks (he maybe went 5 yards) with very little meat spoilage. It was also the man-cub’s first hunting trip (just as an observer/assistant, not yet with his own license) where he had the chance to see a kill first-hand and help with the field dressing and butchering of a deer. The recovered bullet had about 62% weight retention (111 gr recovered, 180 gr leaving the barrel, .30-06 Springfield, max mushroom diameter .490″). The deer was facing me, a slightly quartering shot; the bullet enter the rib cage next to the sternum, blew the top of his heart off, fragments shredded the lungs and diaphragm (AKA skirt steak), the main path of the bullet carried it to a stop in the opposite rear quarter muscles, where it was finally recovered at home while doing final butchering and packaging for the freezer. The weather for the hunt was nice (if windy), and it all worked out quite well. We got home and finished processing it all the same day, and went to bed tired but cleaned up and done.

All of that has nothing to do with books. Continue reading Of bullets and books
Looking at the upcoming 2020 election, what I see is a disconnect at so many levels it is hard to know where to start.
Joe “girl-groping” Biden has obvious signs of mental decline, including dementia and likely Parkinson’s. He is a gaffe-o-matic, and can’t hardy draw a dozen people to his rallies. He flip-flops more than a Hawaiian shoe-store. He has all the charisma of a badly-preserved mummy. He’s being shown to have been involved in illegal and immoral shenanigans during the Obama admin. There is almost daily news about revelations between him, China, Ukraine and Russian companies via Hunter, and more. Continue reading Predictions and Gas-lighting on a massive scale
A wormhole through time opens up between the near-end of a famous battle, and the losing nations current-day home. A hundred thousand or so soldier walk away from the certain death and into a great mystery of history, into the modern times to see what became of their homeland. What do they do? How do they react?
Example: Stalingrad , Jan 1943. The German forces are surrounded and know they are totally screwed, freezing, exhausted, and nearly out of food and ammo. A wondrous portal open up, and someone walks through and offers them a portal back to Germany, but 78 years into the future. Most of them take it, and walk out, guns in hand and what ammo they have remaining, and disappear like a wraith in the night. They appear in a modern Germany, full of socialists (which they are OK with, generally), a lot of people who hate Nazi (somewhat more of a problem), and millions of dark-skinned immigrants and sacrosanct Jews (Ummmmm, Huston, we have a problem…). Pretty sure that hilarity does not ensue, but what, exactly would?
Not a book I could write and do justice, but sure would like to read. Kratman or Ringo would be a better choice.
It’s popular these days to tell girls and young women “you can have it ALL!”
That is a contemptible lie. They can’t. Nor can men. There are always trade-offs to be made. But when you think you can have it all because you bought into the lie, you make bad choices and become disillusioned or worse when things don’t work out the way you thought they were supposed to.

A couple weeks back Qanon.pub got taken off line. Another sources for Q post aggregater is qagg.news . If it’s on a tab, it’ll even sound an alert horn when a new one comes in.
One recently posts item on 30 Sep 2020, (slightly edited / composited for clarity / context):
[Jim] Comeys daughter [Maureen] investigated Epstein’s suicide
And HER HUSBAND [Lucas Issacharoff] does [takes over at SDNY to take over the ] Ghislaine Maxwell’s case????
… Do you believe in coincidences?
A post to two later, there is a news story about Sec State Pompeo being snubbed by the Vatican on a Visit to Italy, followed by the following series of questions:
When does a Church become a playground?
When does a Church become a business?
When does a Church become political?
When does a Church become corrupt?
When does a Church become willfully blind?
When does a Church become controlled?
Yup, 2020. Trump and Q are fighting an AntiPope, too, on top of everything else.
I watched most of it. I had to take a walk a few times, as I hate cross-talk and not answering the primary question in debate settings. In no particular order:
- Not very “professional” with all the cross-talk.
- Biden repeated many lies and twisted version of stories that have been debunked
- Trump interrupted way too often, so it lost it’s potential positive effect by just slipping in the occasional memorable zinger
- Biden looked pretty rough, especially considering how little campaigning he’s been doing lately; he should have looked well-rested and focused, and he wasn’t.
- Biden did better than I expected, but that’s a very low bar.
- Wallace sucked as a moderator.
- A lot of missed opportunities by Trump. I would have liked to see him tout D3 and zinc and other treatments to ameliorate the Wuhan Flu.
- It was clear from the beginning that Trump was trying to get under Biden’s skin and get him flustered and lose it. It almost worked a couple of times, but either his hearing-aid handlers or the moderator saved him time and again.
- Biden’s body-language was defeated and weak, often with eyes downcast, covering his lack of good answers with nervous laughter, eyes looked dilated and dead;
- Trump was clearly upbeat, high-energy, engaged, bright-eyed, and active.
- Surprisingly, Wallace had a few actually good questions (though with horrible follow-up and follow-through). Most were OK-ish, some framed in a rather obviously skewed way (at least, obvious to me) to favor Biden.
- Time allocated to different topics was unfairly uneven.
- “Fact checking” on the channel I was watching was, to put it mildly, rather unfairly selective to favor Biden.
- To someone who only occasionally watches mainstream/legacy media for their news, and would not know how much lying Biden was doing, much of it was nothing more than a pissing match of he-said-she-said. To a news/info junkie like myself who understands most of the references, issues, and details of the items discussed, Biden was constantly lying his ass off, and Trump was not explaining his point nearly as clearly as they could be to an ignorant audience member.
- The wife thought it gave her a headache, doesn’t like either of them, and it was a draw between a NYC asshole and a bumbling moron (not quit her exact words).
- They really need to use something like a chess-timer hooked to their microphone, and it cut their mic when the other person it talking, and it goes back and forth in minimum of 15-second increments, so they both get the same amount of total time.
With the election only about 7 weeks away (and election lawsuits about one hour more than that), I wanted to throw a couple of things out there. One, I’ve been adding things to my Vote Fraud Page with some regularity. Not all are, strictly speaking, “fraud,” but they are things related to unreliable vote systems, people, and tallys. Two, there is a neat tool at NBC called “Swing the Election” that allows you to make prediction on different demographic changes to who votes, and see how that would affect the 2020 election compared to 2016. You might have dun with it.
For example, if all demographics turn out at the same rates and proportions as last time, and they vote the same, Biden wins (flips four states). BUT if non-college whites raise the Trump vote 5% to 73%, Trump win with 322 EC votes. If Blacks shift to vote for him at a 17% rate, he wins with 296. If both happen Trump gets 322. if he adds 6% for college-educated whites (from 46% to 52%), then he’s at 350 EC votes to 188…. fun to play with.
Justice Ginsburg Has Died, U.S. Supreme Court Says.
Now then, as the Dems have already said, in nearly so many words, they plan to litigate the hell out of the election if they / Biden doesn’t win, that means things are likely to go to the US Supreme Court rapidly. If it’s tied, 4-4, then the Dems only have to prevail in the circuit court of appeals here and there, as they choose, to make sure they get locally favorable rulings, then it can get tied at the Supremes and stand. Which means either Trump gets a constitutionalist on the court ASAP, or he
takes out turncoat Roberts and perhaps others decides to step down for various reason.
Looks to be a very spicy leading up to the election, as now we have confirmation hearings as well.
So, who had “SC justice dies with less than 60 days to go before the election” on their 2020 Bingo Card?
