Let’s Review 79: The Evaporating Book and Tranny Hunting Cougars

I have forgotten how to read – Turning, one evening, from my phone to a book, I set myself the task of reading a single chapter in one sitting. The failure was also not a surprise. Paragraphs swirled; sentences snapped like twigs; and sentiments bled out. The usual, these days. I drag my vision across the page and process little. Half an hour later, I throw down the book and watch some Netflix.

Out for dinner with another writer, I said, “I think I’ve forgotten how to read.”

“Yes!” he replied, pointing his knife. “Everybody has.”

“No, really,” I said. “I mean I actually can’t do it any more.”

He nodded: “Nobody can read like they used to. But nobody wants to talk about it.”

Serendipity Imagine if Clinton were president. The CIA meddling in our politics would only have accelerated. The corruption of the FBI would never have been revealed. In fact, it would have metastasized. People like to focus on the policy issues that would have been different with Clinton in power, but without the miracle of Trump, Washington would be ruled today by a dumpy old Caligula in a muumuu.

Hiking? Pack a rock.   “If in the very unusual event that a cougar attacks you, fight back with rocks, sticks, tools or any items available.”— Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

  Mountain Lion Kills 1, Injures Another, 30 Miles East of Seattle Coastal cities and suburbs densely inhabited by granola-crunching moonbats on bicycles exist just a short distance from genuine wilderness. The crunchies love the scenery and think nothing of going off into an out-of-doors shared with large predators unarmed, unprepared, and unaware.

According to the Seattle Bike Blog, Brooks (pictured) was an avid biker, who co-founded Friends on Bikes Seattle to create a bike community where women/trans/femme/non-binary people of color could come together and have fun on bikes…

‘My dog shot me’          “I carry. It’s a Ruger 9 mm, and it’s got a safety on it,” Remme said. “I was lying on the couch, and we were horsing around, me and the dog. And I was tossing him off my lap, and he was jumping back on my lap. And apparently he bumped the safety one time, and when he bounded back over one of his toes went right down into the trigger guard. It has a trigger safety as well as a thumb safety, and he managed to hit both of them, and it discharged and went into my leg, did no major damage to anything.”

I’m thinking that the Democrats who are making such a big deal out of these ads really don’t themselves believe in democracy. They have been going on and on for a year and a half about how Donald Trump shouldn’t be President. Personally, I want to believe in democracy, and what I saw back in November 2016 is that the American people voted Donald Trump into office. I accept that he is rightfully President because he won the election. It bothers me tremendously that so many people won’t do that. I think they do not believe in democracy.

With over one billion US dollars being spent every day worldwide on ‘climate finance,’ the global warming scare is unquestionably the greatest deception in history. It is also the most effective because it uses false science.

Right-Wing Activism Always Fails – In reality, there are no powerful right-wing institutions, few if any powerful people who are openly right-wing, and no powerful right-wing political parties on the cusp of seizing power. But if the ordinary person realized and internalized that fact, there would be no need for the radically left-wing parties masquerading as level-headed moderates that rule Western countries nowadays. The Brown Specter keeps the Reds in power.

The “low threshold” shooters are motivated by “powerful grievances,” but as the riot spreads, the justifications are often manufactured, and the shooters more and more “normal.” “Let’s not kid ourselves that if we passed the strictest gun control in the world that we would end this particular kind of behavior.”

When a system is undeniably confronted with deceitful lawlessness it is like finding the dealer was cheating at cards. Trump, by officially demanding an answer into whether the previous administration engaged in political spying, is effectively accusing them of cheating at cards. As everybody knows, once you ask this question at a table, the surface game stops and a deeper game begins. Suddenly the little cardboard rectangles don’t matter anymore.

Alert the Authorities!

    In re the mountain lion attack in Washington state:

    My absolute first impression on seeing the pictures of the victims was that (a) they’ve been victims for a long time, and (b) they no doubt assumed no predator would dare attack anyone with their impeccable credentials.

    The men are pictured here:

    I’ve noticed this reading problem also. Could it be that we’re just old farts? Or has the internet rewired us?

    Mind you, Rob, it was actually getting some exercise. That’s unusual in that species.

    Gordon,

    Anything curious about the other guy?

    Re: the shootings NR article

    The NR (fake conservative!) dude says [firearms] restraining orders (GVRO) are the only thing that can be done that might have a chance of reducing the incidence of this stuff. I disagree.

    Everybody knows, on all sides, that GVRO’s are the next overton window ratchet to the breaking of the U.S. Constitution. There is no law that can be written that won’t instantly be abused by all the wannabe tyrants to disarm the normies and deplorables and irredeemables. Everyone knows it. The usual process is to get the law passed, and at first make its application rare, so as to not alarm the people. And then, pretty soon every divorce lawyer will be rushing to court with a GVRO application as part of the first filing, or anybody with a gripe about you for anything. No GVRO law would have stopped the Florida or Texas evildoers. In Florida they wouldn’t have applied it to anyone with a Hispanic surname, only whities. And in Texas, the parents didn’t keep their firearms locked up.

    I can admit, from direct experience, that as a teenager when I wanted access to my dad’s firearms, I found a way. It’s a lot of work to keep your firearms securely under your control. Teenagers have persistence and their desires are powerful.

    As an adult, when it has been in my power, I have made evaluations of the maturity and stability of the young men and women in my ambit, and there are some that I deny all access and use of firearms when they are around me.

    “… At the rate of $479,000 per unit …”
    From the land of the Browndoggle, where a bullet train is used to rapidly deliver unimaginable gushers and buckets of of public borrowed money to every single lefty proggro interest group extant, while building nothing of actual productive value, this phrase above is all you need to know.

    Those homeless bond measures and tax increases are for one thing only, and it ain’t for housing. Welcome to Caracas por el Pacifico where the looting will never ever stop until the entire city is reduced to inmundicia tan malo that even worms will refuse to live there.

    It was tree hugger bunny lovers like these two that voted to outlaw cougar hunting with dogs a few years back. They used an ill thought out Initiative to make cougar hunting almost impossible. Where we used to have one adult cougar per 100 square miles we now have nearly 100 in that range today. A full grown female cougar was killed less than a mile from my house when she was spotted stalking a deer hunter. We have been overrun by juvenile cats that have no fear of humans and are very hungry because of the intense competition for food they face with the increased numbers of cats in the range. Cougar attacks on humans are a direct result of liberal voting practices on the west side of Washington state. If you go out into the cougars territory, you need to carry a gun capable of killing them.

    Aww. The PNW’ers are just gonna have to get themselves some dogs to keep their kitty cats under control. Sounds like it’s time bring in some grey wolves.

    Oh, I’m sorry, in the PDSPRPNW (peopledemsocialistproggrorepub), no guns allowed. Kitty cats gotta eat, same as worms. If today it’s your turn, it’s your turn. There’s too many mouths to feed up there anyway, so if every once in a while it’s the turn of the humans to be prey, hey, no big. And notice how cat’s aren’t dumb. They go for the calories. Rowr.

    And on a darker note, PNW soibois culture is a little too … risk averse. Down SoCal way about ten years ago, something similar happened. Two mountain bikers on lonely Orange County mountain roads near sunset. The kitty cat grabbed the first chick coming by, started dragging her off by the face into the bushes for dinner. The following dude, coming upon the scene, jumped off his bike and leapt to the woman’s aid. The dude and the kitty had a tug of war over the chick. The chick survived. The cat lost and lost big, county animal control whacked him the next day, and found another missing cyclist being digested. Eww. Up in the PDSPRPNW, when you see another fellow human being attacked, it’s run away and call 911.

    To fix the homeless problem:
    1. Make it illegal to camp, sleep, deficate, urinate on public property.
    2. Don’t wait days/weeks, confront the homeless individual whenever and where ever they are found.
    3. Since they broke the law get ID to write a ticket (first time no court) and check for warrants.
    4. No warrants, they have 4 choices: They can move on out of the city. They can move or be transported to a place outside the city where they can camp, offer them a one way ticket back to where they have family, or jail if they don’t go.
    Do this in every city, every jurisdiction for every homeless.

    We lived in North Bend before we moved to our present home.

    My questions and comments on Cougar attacks tranny.

    What was her co-op number? My, what great panniers you have! Does this cougar bite on my ass make it look big?

    Big cats are potentially deadly, and every once in a while prove this to be true. Last winter I noted that a lynx had walked past my house as cool as a cucumber; I read the tracks. I look in the trees when I leave the house. Keeps me young, I guess.

    Good, 2 less genetic defects running loose.

    My dad built a beautiful maple and walnut glass fronted gun cabinet to house his guns and there was never a lock on it and none of 5 kids dared ever risk our lives to tamper with it. Whenever my dad got out some guns to do some sport shooting all of us kids over the age of about 4 or 5 were incorporated into the thing. Yeah, shooting a Remington .22 semi-auto rifle at 5 years old, then the 12ga Winchester pump at 10 and a few years later the Winchester .38. Just like clockwork. All 3 of them guns have been in my possession for 30 years and will go to my son when it’s time. That model 12 shotgun was given to my dads dad (my grandfather), brand new, by his dad, when he turned 16 in 1916. That gun is now 102 years old and as of last summer still fires perfectly.

    I built a gun cabinet too, out of hickory, and it never had a lock. Our son never violated that cabinet for he too knew his fate if he did. If your kid can’t be trusted with small responsibilities how can you give him larger ones?

    Most parents these days would rather be friends to their kids than parents. The former is much more fun than the latter.

  • ghostsniper May 22, 2018, 7:55 PM

    That’s Winchester .348, not .38. Model 71. 1957 vintage.

    Great collection! “Right-Wing Activism Always Fails” fantastic piece of thought. And really thanks so much for that link as the further reading on socialmatter.net is now a priority of mine. Fresh observations and original points of view over there it looks from my initial browsing. Thanks.
