No wonder lumber prices are so high, we are shipping it to space! ;)

I thought that this was a pretty interesting story:

Missouri bans state enforcement of federal gun law in state. (NPR Story)

https://www.npr.org/2021/06/17/1007690138/can-missouri-declare-federal-gun-laws-invalid

The Feds are going to have to take a stand against these rouge right-wing states and this looks like the perfect opportunity. If it were me, I would start with withdrawing all Federal law enforcement funding for state and local police agencies and aggressively prosecute the people who violate Federal gun laws. Examples need to be made.

A plumber's opinion: Trump's continuing power over the Republican Party

is the power of extortion.

I can imagine Trump telling McTurtle the facts of life as handed down by the King of Trumps:

"Here it is Mac, I don't give a damn about your fucking party, if you don't cover my ass for the remainder of Biden's term, I will form a third party and assure Democratic control for at least four more years, and maybe a lot longer. I know that I can't win, I don't even want to win, but I demand to be seen as a continuing and respected Republican Powerhouse. I demand that you run legal interference for me. Otherwise, I will carry away at least 20% of Republican votes. However, if you play along, in the final year of Biden's term, I will be a good boy, withdraw for health reasons, support the DeSantis/Ivanka ticket and give you the opportunity of continuing your Fascist agenda." Take it or leave it.

I think that Trump, by continuing his claims and keeping his base hopeful, has the Republicans between a rock and a hard place. The master of the con, as a minority shareholder, owns the party, lock, stock and barrel.

The senior leadership in the Republican party must hate Trump as much or more than we do. There is just no way out for them as long as Trump lives.

Who all is going to the "My Pillow" gig tomorrow?

I think that I will convoy there with all of my neighbors, you all are invited too!

I hope that Lindell explains the process by which the "Real President" is to be returned to office in August. I would just love to meet the man and shake his hand...I am hoping that Sidney will be there too. Now if only Maga Traitor Greenie would be in attendance, mwould be complete. Oh, to be in the same room with all of those patriotic heroes.

Pack up the babies and grab the old ladies!

Texas, guns and silencers, coming to a state near you soon....

Texas is on the verge of telling the BATFE to kiss their ass.

For many years gun suppressors (silencers) have been heavily regulated and taxed by the Federal Government. Texas is taking the position that if the silencers are made in Texas and stay within the State that they are none of the Fed's business. The legislation is planned to be a model for other states to allow their citizens to use silencers without government regulation. It will be really interesting to see how the Feds handle the issue.

Looking on eBay for a new wristwatch

I like this one because it comes with free shipping but my wife thinks the watch is a little tacky. I need some unbiased advice.

Had you been consulted, ahead of time, and knowing what you know now,

Where would you have selected being born? I may have chosen Scotland or maybe one of the countries North of Scotland.
I really think that I would have fit in better.

I am really ill with the people that I live around. Except for a few close friends and family, I live in Trump Heaven, and it is not what I would have chosen. Whenever I go out, I am surrounded by shit-for-brains right-wingers, ignorant and proud; and that includes most of the professional people too! 20 years ago, it was not so bad, but the people are now feeling their oats and are becoming more belligerent and intolerant by the day. The legacy of the Reagan-Trump express train, and too many years of Rush fucking Limbaugh and right-wing Christian preaching. They have all of the answers even if they don't understand the questions.

I guess fate has chosen for me, and it is too late in life to move now, and I love the land I am on, so I choose seclusion as far as possible.

I just watched an older James Bond movie, and I will be damned if he doesn't remind me of me.

Although, I have to admit, I am better looking.

(I am practicing to become a Republican)

The World's most sophisticated "prepper."

Old Jeffery needs a place for "privacy" so he has a yacht built the size of a Navy Destroyer Escort. (actually I exaggerate, it is 17 feet shorter than the ship I served on.) It takes a crew of 60 to operate. I bet it will have better bunks, a better galley, and he won't have to stand the dog watch or swab the decks..... Privacy is simpler for me, I just close the bedroom door.

We really know that the purpose of the explosion of the sales of super yachts is that they rich want a way to get away from the zombie apocalypse when the breakdown of law and order hits close to home. Just pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag and smile, smile, smile.

Of course a half billion dollar boat is necessary for the world's richest man. The 50 million dollar annual expense of operating the thing is chump change for a man who made 17 billion dollars in one day in 2020. He probably has a lair hidden deep within a dormant Japanese volcano, complete with retractable roof and a goon squad of hundreds to man security for it.

These rallies must be much like professional wrestling

Same actors, same audience:
