Magazine limit law

Just for the record, in light of the stupid law signed by Governor MeatPuppet that bans sale, importation, yadda yadda of normal capacity magazine (that they stupidly call “large capacity magazines,” when things like the 30-rnd AR-15 mag has been standard for about sixty years, since before I was born) that comes into effect starting July 1st of this year, I have given a number of my magazines, both for guns I currently own and some I purchases speculatively because of mag limit ban nonsense over the year for guns I thought I might one day buy, so that when they inherit my guns no magazines need be transferred, as they already belong to them.

Now I’m 99% sure this mag ban won’t stand for long, as it clearly violates both the WA state and US constitutional protections, and violates a 5th Circuit decision striking down a nearly identical magazine ban (which is now in conflict with the 9th Circuit decision, meaning the SCOTUS will likely hear them next season), but just in case…. the mags in the house and storage and elsewhere are not all mine at this time, even if I bought them.

Just so you know.

Happy(?) Memorial Day

Today is the day we remember those who served their country in uniform, and paid the ultimate price. Some died in war doing noble things, some died in peacetime doing something stupid, some were honorable, some were right bastards, but all signed up, raised their hand, and swore to do what they were ordered to do to protect the nation.

I served. My dad and some uncles served. My grandpa served. A great aunt served. My brother-in-law just recently retired from an Air Force career. I’m pretty sure there are a number of more-distant relatives who served at different times, either for a single enlistment or a career, drafted or volunteer. I don’t know of any who died in uniform.  But I’m glad they were willing to do so if needed.

The country has changed fairly radically since I served in the Army Reserve, joining when the Soviet Union was still a thing. I cannot recommend it to anyone who is a patriot, now. “Woke” and military service are a really bad combination. Too much of the military has been corrupted, subverted, and the leadership has too many RMEFs, foreigners, compromised perfumed princes, careerists, and socialists. To much leadership is hostile to the Constitution, too many are incompetent diversity hires. These days, the military is just a tool of corrupt and evil leaders in this once-great nation.

To those who served honorably and paid the price, may God take you in and protect your soul for eternity, and protect your family here in this life.

And the ‘rona moves on

It is Sunday night. Almost exactly one week ago, late in the night of last Sunday, the first symptoms of Covid19 showed up in my life. The timing was sort of a bummer, as this weekend was boomershoot, and I would have been driving over Thursday and camping out. I decided the wisest course of action was to not stress myself, and to not possibly spread it to others or even make them nervous when they were off having a good time whacking boomers, so I stayed home.

The ‘rona comes to visit

The daughter-unit came home early yesterday not feeling well. Several of her co-workers are out with covid. She did the quick home test, it said positive. She threw up not long afterword. Got a little food and ivermectin in her. Her lab test results came back today and also said positive. She’s already feeling a bit better, and is just chilling in bed.

Also, this afternoon, the wife-unit wasn’t feeling great so she did the home test, it also came back negative, but she’s sure it’s only a matter of time before she gets a positive. Ah, bummer. Well, we know the drill. She can work from home if she has the energy for it.

Boy-child and I feel fine, taking ivermectin and upping the vitamins just in case. We are obviously going to be exposed, but with fairly regular D3 and zinc and the rest of it prior to this, and with pretty much all the rest of the treatment protocol already in hand https://covid19criticalcare.com/covid-19-protocols/i-mask-plus-protocol/ , we should be fine and get through it quickly.

Later edit (in response to first few comments): I think I’ll be OK. That’s just most of it, not all of it. Go Team Pony Paste! The half-liter bottle is enough for ~16 people, full course.

Later Edit II:
figured I should test, so I have evidence that the I-mask protocol works. yup. Took less than 90 seconds for those lines to show up. Stable like that at 15 min, through 30 min. This was Wednesday, around 11 AM, less than 72 hours since onset of symptoms, back to 80%+ health; son, who had symptoms show up about 12 hours before mine, claims to be nearly all good (call it 95% or so).

Later Edit III:
Fist symptoms Sunday night, pretty classic flu stuff. Thermal dysregulation, a bit of cough, aches, low energy, slight fever, loose stool. Max symptom severity by Tuesday morning, noticeable improvement by evening, mostly good by Wed night (72hours), and back to ~95% by Thursday noon (call it 3.5 days). Will test tonight to see if I’m officially negative, yet. Talking to daughter about her co-workers, most of them are back to work in a week to 10 days, testing negative but still feeling crappy for a while, while she’s fine. Not rigorous data, but a couple of data-points to consider.

Constitutional Amendments

A common social studies class assignment, after spending a far-too-brief time studying our own constitution,  is to ask the students for proposed amendment to correct perceived shortcomings in our legal system. Most of them are laughably bad, of course, as most students don’t really understand how the parts of it work together, don’t appreciate the freedoms it recognizes, nor the actions of unintended consequences when there are  changing incentives. So, here are a couple of mine. Feel free to add your own thoughts. Continue reading Constitutional Amendments

The Constitution’s Seven Money Clauses

In an essay by DEAN CLANCY, we take a closer look at what money is, what the US Constitution says about money, and why it is important to today’s political events. About a ten minute read. a number of things I’ve not seen discussed elsewhere before.

There are a couple of angels on things there that are first for me, such as : “5. Fiat money notes (‘bills of credit’) are forbidden.” Equating fiat money with bills of credit is interesting.

Overall, well worth a read if you are into money or politics.

FWIW, at the current price of silver, $20 in constitutional dollars of silver is worth about $380 in Federal Reserve Notes.
