How to reload a shotgun shell in a survival situation without using a reloading press

When those of us who could save this nation turn our backs and are called "traitors" and worse, I for one will wear that label as a badge of honor as America deserves to be run by an immoral, corrupt, and Unconstitutional system of idiots and liars until it collapses at not just a cultural level, but economically and politically. It has become the only solution to save our society, no matter the pain our citizens feel. Atlas is about to Shrug; too bad nobody but a few of us have noticed.

I'm getting tired of being held accountable for what other people do. Being punished, not because I've caused anyone any harm but merely because I chose not to get on the short bus, grin like an imbecile and accept being treated like an imbecile because some people are imbeciles.

Mr. Sunshine - The potential exists for a global collapse of civilization to occur in the wake of the economic collapse that has already begun. If the world-economic and financial collapse takes place without being stopped by an intelligent intervention, the result will be that the world's economic and technological infrastructures can no longer be maintained that are essential to maintain human life on the planet. In the course of this collapse civilization may end.

 I'm really excited about this period in time because we're seeing utter disgust become a mainstream opinion, regardless of what's actually being reported by the mainstream news media.  When I walk into a store or a bar or restaurant and overhear conversations filled with a near-hatred of what the Nation State has become, then we're getting somewhere.

It is the right of everyone to express their opinion, choose a profession and practice it, to dispose of property, and even to abuse it; to come and go without permission, and without having to account for their motives or undertakings. It is everyone’s right to associate with other individuals, either to discuss their interests, or to profess the religion which they and their associates prefer, or even simply to occupy their days or hours in a way which is most compatible with their inclinations or whims.

 When I was an MP in the Army, we didn’t really mess with law enforcement... we were content to sit around and do as little as possible. And we could get around that because the military has a culture that has a self-policing mechanism (all successful cultures do, which the American one ain't). You need a final arbitrator and enforcer, but a culture should be strong enough to police itself successfully most of the time... The police doing more is always bad news.

Sevastopol: Relic Hunting


Punishing Sherman’s Vandals

Formed out of the Eighth Texas Cavalry in mid-1864 by General John Bell Hood, Captain Alexander Shannon’s “Scouts” was one of the most colorful and effective cavalry units during the war.  The thirty-man force regularly attacked Sherman’s foraging parties that terrorized Southern civilians, often thrashing units four times their number.

Punishing Sherman’s Vandals

“A passage from a letter written by Enoch John, one of Shannon’s Scouts, on December 18, 1864, reveals the hard nature of the war
waged by these men. 

“I have enjoyed myself on this trip but think, sometimes, I am getting hard-hearted,” he wrote.  “But I notice the tears of a lady always
bring tears to me eyes and the smoke and flames of a dwelling prevents the prayers of the Yankees for their lives, even when on their
knees, being heard, and steadies my nerves to kill them all . . . I have a brace of pistols that never snap.”

[Shannon’s] Scouts often employed hit-and-run tactics.  “Witnesses stated that Shannon’s rule was immediately to attack any enemy force encountered and if it proved too strong to withdraw,” wrote one historian of the unit.  If endangered, the Scouts remained concealed, waiting for a chance to pounce on stragglers.

“[Crossing into North Carolina the Scouts] . . . hardly had time to feed their horses before the picket reported Yankees just down the road robbing a house.” [General Joe Wheeler led] twenty of Shannon’s men in a small ambush against some [enemy] troopers pillaging a residence near Rockingham. 

The Confederates routed the stunned Yankees and killed or captured thirty-five in a spirited skirmish.  Two troopers from the 9th Pennsylvania Cavalry were killed, as were two of the 8th Indiana Cavalry.  Mathew S. Ross of Company G surrendered, but one of Shannon’s men shot him in the back of the head nonetheless, the ball lodging between his skull and the skin of his forehead.  “He lived until after dark that night when he died . . . [recalled a captured comrade]”

Poll: 71% "Regret" Backing Obama in 2012


Nearly three-fourths of voters who voted for President Obama in 2012 wish they hadn’t, a new Economist/YouGov.com poll finds. But are these numbers as bad as they seem? Let’s take a look.
From The Examiner:
The poll asked those who voted for Obama's reelection a simple question: “Do you regret voting for Barack Obama?” 

Overall, 71 percent said yes, 26 percent no.
— 80 percent of whites said yes, 61 percent of blacks said no and 100 percent of Hispanics said yes.

— 84 percent of women said yes, and just 61 percent of men agreed.
— 55 percent of Democrats said yes, as did 71 percent of independents.

Still, given the choice of Obama versus Romney, Obama supporters said they would stick with their guy, 79 percent to 10 percent for Romney.
At first blush, these numbers must be very difficult for Democrats to swallow. (Incidentally, I had to take a second look at the actual poll itself to double-check that “100 percent” of Hispanics regretted voting for Team Obama in 2012. They did). But perhaps these numbers aren’t really as bad as they seem; after all, according to the poll, 79 percent of respondents said they would vote for Barack Obama again if the presidential election were held today. In other words, nearly 8 in 10 Obama backers would not change how they voted in 2012.

New Jersey Police Chief Speaks Out Against Town Council Over Corruption – Gets Relieved of Duties


No one owns the Chief position.  It's not for sale," said acting Bloomfield Police Chief James Behre.  The 27-year New Jersey police veteran was speaking at a Town Council meeting, discussing the political corruption he was urged to take part in.  Less than 48 hours later, he received a letter from Township Administrator Ted Ehrenburg, relieving him of his duties.

In his statement to the Council, Behre explained that he had experienced a lot of harassment in his job, causing significant stress.  He said, however, that Councilman Carlos Bernard had made repeated offers for the harassment to stop and the position to be made permanent in exchange for favors to Latino policemen.  These favors included pushing Latinos forward in line for Sergeants' Exams, promoting Latinos to detective, and even fixing a parking ticket.  He also asked Behre's men to write tickets in his ward.

Property owner jailed for shooting a suspected burglar for the third time

 Miodrag Bugarcic (Source: Oakwood Police)

A man is sitting in jail under investigation for shooting an intruder at his vacant business on East 65th Street in Cleveland.

Multiple sources identify the property owner as Miodrag Bugarcic.

This marks the third time, Bugarcic has allegedly opened fire on an intruder.

In this latest case on Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014 the suspected burglar got shot in the stomach and his butt.

Police say he somehow stumbled off, and they found him a few blocks away.

Another intruder didn't make it out alive.

In November 2012, police say Bugarcic shot and killed a burglar at a property he owns on Portage in Cleveland.

Three weeks after that, he shot and wounded another burglar.

Gingrich Urges 'Delusional' Kerry to Quit Over Global Warming Speech

Every American who cares about national security must.demand Kerry's resignation. A delusional secretary of state is dangerous to our safety

Newt Gingrich has demanded that a "delusional" Secretary of State John Kerry resign after comparing climate change to terrorism and calling it "the world's largest weapon of mass destruction."

The CNN host and former House speaker, spelling the name incorrectly as Kerrey, declared in a series of tweets that Kerry was "out of touch with reality," and that by making policy decisions in a "fantasy world" he was dangerous to U.S. safety.

HSLDA Action Alert: U.S. Department of Education: Leave Homeschoolers Alone!

On December 27, 2013, the U.S. Department of Education released a notice of proposed rulemaking regarding migratory students. This is not uncommon, as the Department of Education has worked with state public schools for many years to provide assistance to children of migratory workers (these are often workers who travel to different farms to harvest fruits and vegetables).

But what immediately drew HSLDA’s attention and concern was the Department of Education’s assertion that these new regulations would apply to migratory students who are homeschooled. The proposed regulations are an attempt by the Department of Education to assist school districts in keeping records on migratory students as they move from school district to school district.

However, the proposed regulations also said this:

Those Keeping Lincoln Out of Richmond

Winfield Scott was keenly aware of the capabilities of the Southern officers who fought under him in Mexico, and did not hesitate to inform Lincoln of who it was opposing the conquest of Richmond.

Those Keeping Lincoln Out of Richmond:

"Abraham Lincoln once asked General [Winfield S.] Scott the question: 

"Why is it that you were once able to take the City of Mexico in three months with five thousand men, and we have been unable to take Richmond with one hundred thousand men?

"I will tell you," said General Scott. "The men who took us into the City of Mexico are the same men who are keeping us out of Richmond."

Oregon Has Spent $304 Million On ObamaCare Website, Yet to Enroll One Person & The 10 Most Outrageous Stimulus Projects


Well, at least someone has gotten around to asking questions.

Republicans are launching investigations into three state-run ObamaCare exchanges that are failing disastrously.

Lawmakers are setting their sites on exchanges in Oregon, Maryland and Massachusetts where Democratic governors embraced the healthcare law, and are demanding to know why their expensive online portals remain useless more than four months after launch.

On Wednesday, four Republicans on the House Energy and Commerce Committee sent a letter to the Government Accountability Office (GAO) requesting a review of the $304 million in federal grants that Oregon received to build its broken website.

“The catastrophic breakdown of Cover Oregon is unacceptable, and taxpayers deserve accountability,” wrote the group of lawmakers led by Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.).

Google accuses WND of 'hate speech': Cites use of 'black mobs' in coverage of racial attacks


The world’s most powerful Internet search engine has accused WND of using “hate speech” and has threatened to block ads on the news site over its use of the term “black mobs” in news stories and columns reporting on a two-year epidemic of racial attacks in the U.S.

In response, WND is preemptively blocking Google ads in content in which that phrase appears in past and current stories, including this one. Other ad providers have agreed to step in and fill the gap.

Joseph Farah, editor and CEO of WND, said the Google policy is flawed because it “attempts to censor words and phrases that are truthful and accurate from First Amendment-protected media on the basis of political correctness and faulty algorithmic methodology.”

MSNBC Blames Failed UAW Vote in Tennessee on Racism


Timothy Noah, a whiney-tongued income inequality writer for MSNBC is a former senior editor at the far-left propaganda journal The New Republic and was a senior writer for Slate, another far-left tool. He went on to MSNBC yesterday and fabricated a story out of whole cloth about racism being the cause of the workers rejecting the UAW contract at the Volkswagen plant in Tennessee a few days ago.

The Unfortunately Innate Nature of Intelligence: An Invitation to a Lynching


Human races are subspecies of Homo sapiens (sic), just as basset hounds and Chihuahuas are subspecies of dog. The breeds of neither are precise genetic categories: In the words of the heroic John Derbyshire, genetically “what you see is a continuum with some pretty sharp clines.” Yet the genetic commonalities are sufficient to be obvious: At a glance one can distinguish between a Japanese and a Norwegian, or a Siberian wolf hound and a dachshund.

Anyone having experience with dogs knows that these admirable creatures differ in intelligence. Border Collies are simply smarter than pit bulls. Since there is no political penalty for noticing this, it is widely noticed and not disputed. Yet if subspecies of Bowser differ markedly in intelligence, it would seem to follow that subspecies of humans, who differ in color, hair, biochemistry, facial features, brain size and so on, might also differ in intelligence.  That is, there is no prima facie biological reason for believing that they cannot. There are many political incentives.

I just had an abortion over the weekend, and it was great...

Anonymous asked: i just recently had an abortion over the weekend and it was great that i had access to it, without it my boyfriend and i would of had to drop out of college and ruin our lives but apparently abortion is sooo wrong when its not even a baby, its a parasite made of cells that have no feelings that is leaving my body, people like you make me sick‏

When I first read this post, I thought I would just delete it like the rest. I know your intentions were to cause me suffering, and if causing me suffering means you win, then I guess you have. To be honest, lying in this hospital bed, it is young women like you that I think about the most.

I was once like you. I was once told that aborting my children was the answer to my life. I was once told that my boyfriend too would have to drop out of the University he attended, and I wouldn’t be able to attend the following year after I graduated from High School. The funny thing was, because of my son, my ex-boyfriend and I qualified for several grants and scholarships. In fact, I’m one of the few people I know that was able to go to school without taking out student loans. Which is probably why I’m a home owner at 26.

Oliver Stone and Jeremy Scahill Rail Against Obama and His MSNBC Defenders

Commies revolt.

Journalist Jeremy Scahill and filmmaker Oliver Stone believe that, on issues of civil liberties and warfare, President Obama has entirely abandoned his 2008 rhetoric. And they see MSNBC and stars like Bill Maher as the biggest cheerleaders for such abrogations.

The two well-known men of the left appeared Saturday at the 2014 Students For Liberty Conference (ISFLC), on a panel entitled “Imperial Overreach and the National Security State,” sponsored by the libertarian Future of Freedom Foundation. They were joined by Stone’s co-author Peter Kuznick, with Newseum vice chairman Shelby Coffey moderating.

Failing Liberals Turn To Oppression To Hold On To Power

Queen Pathetic

Look at the Obamacare scam. Liberals don't even blink at the fact that its foundational premise that if you liked your health care, you could keep it, was a lie. They’re not even offended by the lie. They’re offended that we point out that it was a lie.

Now the same people who got us into this mess are telling us we should go along and trust them to fix the same damn problem that they created in the first place. Liberals are the Lucys of American politics, holding the football and promising that this time it’ll be different. We need to stop being the Charlie Browns.

In the Senate, liberals toss traditions like the filibuster out the window for political expediency. The president creates his own laws or changes ones that are already in place on a whim. There are no norms, there are no standards. Everything is a short-term political gambit, and little things like the Constitution are just obstacles to progress.

How does all this end well? It doesn't. It can't.

EBT: Is It Enough?


We have a secret pact with the 'other side of the bell curve' who we sometimes call "tax receivers."

We pay for their welfare, EBT, housing, transportation, medical, child care and other necessary quality-of-life expenses.  They stay in their neighborhoods and leave us alone.

It is an expensive agreement costing "tax payers" about 50% of their income each year.  But, unfortunately, we've painted ourselves into a corner.  There are few solutions:

    1) They change and become "tax payers" and responsible citizens who contribute to their communities,  or

    2) We cut them off and put those dollars into ammo.

For any Liberal Progressive Communist who thinks throwing more money at teachers unions or ObamaPhones or ObamaCare will work, I say "nyet."

It’s a compelling story, isn’t it? A 7 year old’s birthday party invitation returned to the senders (two gay dads) with that note on it? The radio station posted that note on their Facebook page mid week this past week, and of course, readers went completely crazy over it, expressing their due outrage and offering their sympathy and support to the fathers. It spread like wildfire.

The problem with the story, though, is that Steve Harper and Deanna (last name unknown) made up the entire thing, right down to the actual invitation, which they apparently hand-crafted. And they wrote this apology note on the station’s website yesterday:
