Precision rifle cleaning

The art of precision rifle maintenance: One method demonstrated.

via Primal Rights

Of course, there are exceptions to the rule of thumb on cleaning rifles:

There is a guy in TX with a FAL he has not cleaned in over 15000 rounds, and still can hit targets to 500 yards...Ol' Dirty:

When or even if to clean a rifle...truly an artform. What works for you?

Replace Obama with Romney. Result: More of the Same BGBS

(BGBS: Big Government BS)


Are you having difficulty finding a doctor who will see you? If you are, brace yourself. Things are about to get a whole lot worse.

Right now, the biggest problems are in Massachusetts. If you live in Boston and are trying to see a new family doctor, get prepared to wait more than two months before you ever get a foot in the door. For the state as a whole, the average wait to see a new family doctor is one month. More than half of all family doctors and more than half of all internists are not accepting new patients at all.

What if you live in another state? Just wait two more years. In Massachusetts people are lined up waiting to see doctors because of the health reform championed by the former governor (RomneyCare). And as Barack Obama has said on more than one occasion, RomneyCare is the model for ObamaCare.

Why? In both the Massachusetts health plan and the new health care law the mistake is the same: insuring the uninsured, but doing nothing to enable the medical community to deliver more care. Massachusetts succeeded in cutting the number of uninsured in half — a worthy accomplishment. But the state did nothing to expand the number of doctors, nurses or paramedical personnel. The result: a major increase in the demand for care, but no change in supply.

I learned what this means in human terms a while back from a Boston cab driver. She was on MassHealth (Medicaid) and her biggest problem, she told me, was getting care. "I went down a list of 20 doctors before I found one who would see me," she said. "Twenty doctors?" I responded incredulously. "Were you going through the Yellow Pages?" "No," she said, "I was going down the list MassHealth gave me."

In Massachusetts, this is what the advocates of health reform call "universal coverage."

Bad as all this is, it is actually rather mild compared to what is about to happen in other states. In Massachusetts, less than 10 percent of the population was uninsured before the reform set in. In Texas, by contrast, one in every four people is currently uninsured. Insure half of those and the demand for Texas doctors is going to soar.

Read the rest here.

Think Romney is the solution to Obama? Explain to me the difference between a Big Gov Republican socialist and a Big Gov Democratic Socialist. I have an open mind.

Third American Revolution, reasons to fight: Enemies Domestic -- Police State begins...

Oh, boy, this disturbs me.  Really disturbs me.

Residents of Leesburg, Florida were shocked to see their local Social Security office turned into a random Homeland Security checkpoint Tuesday morning, as DHS officers armed with semiautomatic rifles and accompanied by sniffer dogs checked identifications of locals.

“With their blue and white SUVs circled around the Main Street office, at least one official was posted on the door with a semiautomatic rifle, randomly checking identifications. And other officers, some with K-9s, sifted through the building,” reports the Daily Commercial.

The activity was part of Operation Shield, an unannounced drill conducted by the DHS’ Federal Protective Service centered around “detecting the presence of unauthorized persons and potentially disruptive or dangerous activities.”

Thomas Milligan, district manager for the Social Security Administration office, said staff were not informed their offices were about to be stormed by armed FPS officers. DHS officials refused to answer questions asked by local media and left with no explanation at noon.


A social security office in Leesburg, FL!!?? Really, WTF!!??

I mean, if the program (Operation Shield) has any legitimacy, it could show up at certain places that intel indicates could be high priority targets, but a social security office in Leesburg, Florida?  A city of 20,000 people in north central Florida?  

To me, that only means that the people running the show at DHS are either incompetent or just starting to test the waters for real trouble.  Either way, it's bad.

Feel safer yet?

To echo Craig Cavanaugh's most recent comment on this blog, what to do about it?  I don't know, but I really don't want to wait anymore to see how this develops.  I really don't know what to do.

Quote of the Day, 1/2/2012

The United States of America has become what the Greatest Generation fought to defeat:

The test of fascism is not one’s rage against the Italian and German war lords. The test is how many of the essential principles of fascism do you accept and to what extent are you prepared to apply those fascist ideas to American social and economic life? When you can put your finger on the men or the groups that urge for America the debt-supported state, the autarchial corporative state, the state bent on the socialization of investment and the bureaucratic government of industry and society, the establishment of the institution of militarism as the great glamorous public-works project of the nation and the institution of imperialism under which it proposes to regulate and rule the world and, along with this, proposes to alter the forms of our government to approach as closely as possible the unrestrained, absolute government. Then you will know you have located the authentic fascist.

--John T. Flynn, 1944
