The Five Reasons Trump Is Going to Crush Biden 2. There’s No Market for Socialist Dictatorship Outside Academia and Blue Cities

“So, let’s go with this. We will be nicer to criminals and let them out of jail, and hassle cops.”

“More crooks, fewer cops. I like the sound of that. How about guns in the hands of normal people who want to protect themselves?”

“Oh, we’ll ban them. Sound good?”

“Sure does! How about taxes?”

“Oh, we’ll raise those, except we’ll restore unlimited state and local tax deductions so rich people in California and New York can force truckers in Kentucky and farmers in Iowa to subsidize their blue states’ profligate spending!”

“Awesome. Hey, I bet people are tired of the government not controlling their health care. Can we fix that?”

It’s Gonna Blow, by Fred Reed –  To collapsing countries, there usually comes a man on a horse. A man with a big stick. You know, 1789, 1917, 1933. That kind of thing. The media encourage the rioters, inflame passions either deliberately or through partisanship. They have little idea of what they are encouraging. It may seem strange to say that the media do not know what is going on—it is their business to know–but they don’t. They were blindsided by the Trump because they had no idea of conditions in the country, in Flint and Gary, in Wheeling. Today they do not know what is brewing out there, or of how much they contribute to it.

The Whiteness Problem of White Wine Articles warn, The Wine Industry is Overwhelmingly White.” and they frantically urge, “It’s Time to Decolonize Wine” and “It’s Time: Diversity in Wine”. Wine is actually very diverse. Not only does wine come from all over the world, but it comes in different colors and shades, it originates from different cultures and exists in different languages. It’s mentioned in the Bible, in ancient Chinese poems, and in 2,000 year old verses from India.

Liberty’s Torch: Civil War 2: Where We Stand Civil War 2 isn’t a race war, as I once thought and wrote. It’s a political war in which race is the battering ram the Left is wielding against the Right. The steadily rising violence in a number of Democrat-run cities is the entering wedge. If the Left succeeds in ‘exporting’ the riots from its urban redoubts into the majority-white suburbs, war in its fullest dimensions will be upon us. Suburban whites will resist. We have plenty of firearms with which to do so. Yet the Left seems to believe that it can win such a contest. I’m inclined to think otherwise. As has been said by others, when blacks ‘act up,’ neighborhoods burn, but when whites ‘act up,’ continents burn. A conclusion such as this one would be mild compared to some of the alternatives.

No, the vast power of military hardware would be of little use in an actual insurgency.  That battle tank?  Where is its fuel coming from?  How is it getting from its start as an infusion in rocks deep underground through wells, refineries, pipes, trucks, and storage tanks until if finally ends up in the tank itself?  How many men does it take to guard every step of the way because anything you leave unguarded is an opportunity for insurgents to interrupt the supply   “blow up a pipeline, ambush tank trucks, demolish a railroad bridge, and on and on.

I keep reading about this gal Rachel Tension and how she’s causing all kinds of bile along with Oprah. I don’t know about Rachel but Oprah’s gone all skinny on us and I reckon it makes her want to make more fuss about whatever she’s thinking about. Oprah used to be all porked up and looked like three hundred pounds of fatback with legs and if you’d had a oil well you wanted to shut down you could have used her for a plug. I hear there’s less Oprah now, though. Which is about how much I can use.

JPMorgan Says Prepare for Rising Chance of Trump Re-Election –  “Certainly a lot can happen in the next ~60 days to change the odds, but we currently believe that momentum in favor of Trump will continue, while most investors are still positioned for a Biden win,” Kolanovic wrote Monday. “Implications could be significant for the performance of factors, sectors, COVID-19 winners/losers, as well as ESG.”

Chicago police officers may be targeted by gang cabal, according to FBI Chicago office – A federal intelligence alert obtained by the ABC7 I-Team has gone out to Chicago-area law enforcement with an ominous warning: nearly three dozen cold-blooded street gangs “have formed a pact to ‘shoot on-sight any cop that has a weapon drawn on any subject in public’.”

    I have a very heavy Rigid radial arm saw from the early 1960s that I bought from a guy for not much. I have not put it together yet, although I did buy a pulley to lift the motor into place. It’s so old, there’ no ZIP codes on the address. The guy I bought it from, who was well aged, said he called Rigid when he needed a new key (there’s a lockout key to keep kids from self amputations). The folks at Rigid asked him to send a picture of the saw. Then they told him they haven’t had that key in stock for a couple of decades, maybe more. Then, they sent him a key someone found. It works.

    I look at that table and I think, Jaysus, be nice to have that. But I’d never get it home, and don’t have any place to put it. A 5,000 pound anvil. Wylie Coyote never ordered that from Acme.

    Gordon sed: “I have a very heavy Rigid radial arm saw from the early 1960s”
    Radial or Turret? Regardless, I want to buy it and I can come and get it next weekend.

    I look at Scott and just now I think he exemplifies everything the left seeks to destroy in this country – including “manners” which are somehow to be construed as ” white oppression”. This man is a humble, warm, skilled exemplar of what is good, right and proper in Western Civilization and these commie bastards want to destroy it all.
    We will not permit them to do so, even if it comes (as I fear it will) to shooting.

    On that workbench. Very Nice. And yes, I’d easily get up off the left one. Having one would open up all sorts of possibilities. I’m surprised he has a gravel floor. I couldn’t live like that. 8″ thick double reinforced concrete is the rule. Preferably epoxy coated.

    I liked hearing his mention at the end of the human help he had. When I lived in Florida I had a human network cultivated and nurtured over 4 decades. If I ever needed anything or needed something done it was just a phone call away, no matter what it was. Stupidly, by some measures, I didn’t take that into consideration when we moved here to the woods 14 years ago. Immediately the network was gone and it’s sort of a helpless feeling when you’re a “git er dun” type of person. I only had me.

    Maybe people tend to take their network for granted, I know I did. Never even thought about it. It started developing when I was a child so it was always there, and always getting better with time. Then it was gone and something else had to fill that void. Ingenuity, and unique human process. Now, it wasn’t just a matter of choosing what big project to do next (like, build a 2 story 40′ porch on the rear of the house, gut a 2nd floor masterbath down to the joists and studs, same with kitchen, or build from scratch a 24’x36′ workshop-office), but also how to do these things by myself.

    Yeah, a 2.5 ton workbench would be cool but I believe a human network is more beneficial, and I have neither. But I’ve learned some things along the way, like how to deal with very difficult things in unusual and unconventional ways. So there’s that.

    There’s a podcast called Garage Logic. It used to be a radio talk show, five days a week. But the station went a different direction, so now anyone can listen in. Because it ran for years before moving online, there’s a whole shorthand language.


    Among the terms is one: garage wood. These are chunks of wood that reside in the garage, saved for those times when they will be needed. Garage wood can even be handed down and inherited. I have several pieces myself. You just know that when moving a 2.5 ton object, garage wood will be involved.

    Another is the Three Prices You Paid:
    1. The price you paid for the item.
    2. The price you said you paid for the item.
    3. The price you pay when she discovers #1.

    Ghost, from one of the shots it looks like he has 6 or so inches of concrete floor in part of his shop.

    Me, depends on what I’m doing, which flooring I like. My river shop is concrete floored, my old wood shop, roughcut wood floor is satisfactory, comfortable to stand on and at least a little forgiving when I drop something breakable. I have my forge and smelting furnace set up outside, on blocks but surrounded by dirt. That works fine for me but I admit it’s not too handy when the temperature drops to -50°.

  • Gordon Scott September 2, 2020, 5:35 PM

    If you want it you can have it for what I paid, which was $60. It probably cost more than that in 1962.

    Dissolution of the American Republic, one comment.
    Antique work bench; all the rest.

    Kinda understand that. For what it’s worth, I’ve got a huge table planer in the garage. The previous owner left it there when I bought the place. I’m foggy on the size, dimensions and maker (it was 38 years ago) but I had zero need or use for it. All I can tell you about the weigh is that (back when I was young and strong) I tried and failed to budge it an inch with a wrecking bar and fulcrum. It was old back then.
    It’s actually inside a wall now. Since I couldn’t move it and I was converting the space into my wife’s dance studio, I walled it off.
    Show up and if you can move it and load it on your truck you can have it.
    ps I’m pretty sure the garage was built during WWII, the piece probably dates from then.

    “… when blacks ‘act up,’ neighborhoods burn, but when whites ‘act up,’ continents burn.”

    No shit, Sherlock.

    BLM and PantiFa wanna come to the ‘burbs? Where even in blue states like Oregon the Eastern parts are redder than a sunburn on an albino?

    Bring it on.

    Scott Adams needs a cabinet post.

  • Casey Klahn September 4, 2020, 9:49 AM

    I remodeled the Motel T garage in the back, and now it’s my oil painting studio. I feel the same way about my artist’s table as the 5K workbench. It is a hardwood 7′ x 4′ solid structure, and I took it out of the garage, via the South wall opening. I removed the whole South wall and part of the SW wall; actually they had fallen down. Put heavy-duty casters on that bich, and back into the studio she went. Everything revolves around the studio easel and drop down tables. I am constantly reconfiguring to tackle various tasks. I also got a tool cabinet on casters, you know the ones with ball-bearing drawers. Everything is organization, and too many windows. The guy before me had turned it into a green house and so it has windows from ground to roof, and all very aged and weathered.

    I’m planning a blog post on just that artist’s table. It is a thing of beauty.

    I visited a metal sculptor, whose studio had two impact presses. The Concrete flooring underneath was 6 feet deep. BOOOOM! His hands are 9 inches from palm to knuckles (thickness) from using the hammer.

    I like what I do better, though. If the commies will just leave me alone, I’ll be fine, I think.
