For those of you looking for a substitute for ipecac syrup...

...note the fawning article in the Washington Post Magazine on Pelosi (it's ok, the link goes to News Busters).

In every picture I've ever seen of her, her eyes look like shards of glass from a shattered bottle of Budweiser beer; glossy, but lifeless. Probably has to do with her addiction (to power).

I actually find this very therapeutic

"Quarantine Got You Down? Clean Your Guns!"

An open bottle of Hoppe's No. 9 is like perfume, to me. And there's something especially mesmerizing about some of these old military surplus pistols: the aroma of old gun oil and solvent, the powder-blasted barrels...mmmmmm!

Update Friend and commenter JeffS has a little help when he cleans his guns...and when I say little help, I mean little help.

Let's see. Rhode Island is hunting down New Yorkers (thanks, JeffS), and Florida's governor is quarantining people from Louisiana. And some of my neighbors, who live here year round, are complaining about folks returning from up north to their vacation homes in the area.

You just watch; won't be too long before Texas has its own navy again.

Getting rid of Biden

I think it's becoming painfully obvious to everyone that Joe Biden simply cannot be president. His Cabinet members would have to run the country by committee, or maybe his wife, secretly, like Woodrow Wilson's after his stroke.

I'm sure the Democrats will find a kind and gentle way of ushering Joe into political retirement, with a seamless transition to another candidate.

Well, these things happen

"Oops: CNN Forgot To Translate Its Latest Coronavirus Update From Mandarin".

Let's not forget

A Democrat victory in November would mean the triumph of some of the worst people in the world.

Hillary: So, you're saying I have a chance

I generally don't link Hot Air, but this is Jazz Shaw and he isn't (I don't believe) a NeverTrump troll like some of the site's other writers.

At the linked post, he critiques Joe Biden's attempt to look presidential on the coronavirus. Shaw's conclusion seems about right:
This meltdown happened in one of the most controlled and stage-managed environments imaginable. If Joe Biden can’t even pull that off, how is he going to perform if he’s sitting across the table from Putin, Erdogan or Kim Jong-un? “Lemme, lemme go a second” isn’t going to dazzle his negotiating partner.

* * * *

...this guy is asking to be made the leader of the free world and be given the launch codes. And if the Democrats are taking this election seriously and honestly care about something besides just replacing Donald Trump with any other warm body they can find, the DNC should be having a long, serious discussion about this by now. They are not yet officially committed to making Joe Biden the nominee and there are other options still available.

Lady, you've had enough. How about if I call you a cab?

"Hillary Clinton urges Americans not to listen to President Trump about coronavirus".

You know, I think the only thing keeping her alive is hate.

Dear Mainstream Press...

What a find!

Scored some more toilet paper this morning at Walmart. Buyers were limited to one four-pack. And it wasn't even the store brand; looked like government surplus circa 1958, from the back of a supply closet at a remote and not very popular national park. But it's the real thing, so I'm not squawkin'. Interestingly, some of the neighborhood golf and tennis clubs are complaining of thefts of toilet paper from their restrooms.

Maggie's school is out for the rest of the year, thanks to an edict from Virginia Governor Ralph "Coonman" Northam, and Number One Son is temporarily out of a job, since his tattoo shop has been deemed non-essential for the duration.

Overcast and a little cool outside, so not a bad day to do some inaugural gardening. At least, with shortages and such, I might be able to get away with shooting some deer and rabbit pests - you know, for food.

Speaking of shooting, I'm thinking of acquiring a K1911 Schmidt-Rubin Swiss carbine. Classic Firearms has some in stock, and they look pretty decent. I like bolt action rifles, but the only one I own is a WWII-era G98/40 (a modified Mannlicher in 8mm Mauser made in Hungary during the German alliance and subsequent occupation). Great shooter, but kind of rare.

And if Nancy Pelosi drops dead today, I will gladly undertake to fund the costs of her funeral.

Update I said I'd pay for your funeral, Nancy, not be the reason for it: "Pelosi Backs Down From Her Coronavirus Bill (For Now) – Says Will Try to Pass Senate’s Economic Stimulus Package". Heh. She probably thought I was going to wrap her in old newspapers and stand her in a trash can.

And now, a word from our sponsor

Imagine this

Nick Searcy has some fun with the stupid liberal Hollywood crowd.

Update Kurt Schlichter has a variation on the same theme: "The People Our Loser Elite Look Down Upon Are Saving Our Bacon".
Our elite is full of self-important morons who contribute nothing but more dumb in a time when the only thing we have a surplus of is dumb. The real hero is the guy who trucks in a load of whole wheat bread, ribeyes, and low-priced cabernet to the Trader Joe’s, not the Prius-piloting sissy with a Maddow fetish who shops there. The people our elite laughed at, scoffed at, poked at, are the very people who are going to rescue us from the mess that same elite helped make.

2nd amendment looking pretty good about now

Unlike earlier gun-buying spikes, which stemmed from the fears of traditional 2nd Amendment supporters over the possibility of bans and confiscations (typically arising in the wake of mass-shooting events, exploited by gun-grabbing Democrats for maximum political leverage), the present surge includes many first-time gun buyers, including a not insignificant number of people who, historically, have been indifferent or even hostile to gun ownership, and the purchases are being driven by a perceived need to protect themselves and their families, not by a simple desire to add to an existing private arsenal. Their fears may be exaggerated, but their instincts are correct: each of us bears the primary responsibility for our own safety, and in uncertain times, a baseball bat or hammer probably isn't going to get the job done. From the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action:
Demonstrating a newfound appreciation for Second Amendment rights during this time of upheaval, many of those purchasing firearms in recent weeks are first time gun owners.

This fact was pointed out in a March 14 tweet by Donald Trump Jr. In his tweet, the avid gun rights supporter acknowledged the trend and noted, "The irony of it all is that it’s my Democrat friends reaching out to me now asking me which guns they should buy just in case... in particular which ARs. I guess they’re ok with the 2A now??? You don’t need it, till you need it.​"

Nighthawks, 2020

More media hackery and flackery

Oh, by all means, let's get worked up over whether referring to it as the Chinese virus is xenophobic or racist - unlike all those other times.
In what can only be described as a moment of unconscious self-parody, the media pretended not to understand why Trump would refer to the virus in geographic terms—as if they’d never heard of the Spanish Flu, West Nile Virus, Ebola, Zika, Lyme Disease, or the many other diseases named for their places of origin.
Frankly, as long as the Chinese government continues to push the propaganda that this virus actually originated in the United States, I don't think there'd be anything wrong with calling it the Chinese Communist Party Virus (not my idea; something I saw somewhere on the internet yesterday, but can't remember where).

Update Suicidal: "Media Continues Corporate/Chinese Propaganda Push".

No analysis of current events is complete without a look at Kurt Schlichter's take

"The Chinese Coronavirus Bat Soup Syndrome has taken what’s left of the media’s reputation, poured gasoline on it, then lit it on fire before flattening it with a bulldozer and finally having a Scat Francisco hobo download last night’s free bologna sandwich on the remains."

Alternative approaches

The Nork way.



Update "Buck Throckmorton" has a post up over at Ace of Spades that includes some good observations as to why baby boomers aren't panicking the way millenials are. A taste:
Maybe the Wuhan Virus is finally “The Big One.” But after decades of the media fraudulently screaming “APOCALYPSE IS IMMINENT!!!” it is not irrational for Boomers to dismiss the latest hysteria. In Aesop’s fable about “The Boy Who Cried Wolf,” the moral of the story isn’t that the townsfolk should have believed the boy, the moral is that the boy shouldn’t have destroyed his credibility by falsely screaming wolf time and again.

Public service announcement from Paco Enterprises

"How to use just one square of toilet paper".



H/T to friend, commenter and Good Samaritan, JeffS.

Update Ammo really IS flying off the shelf. I went online at Sportsman's Guide to order some replacement cartridges for what I shot up today at the range, and, fortunately, the stuff I needed - .45 long colt and .32 S&W long - wasn't the kind of stuff in big demand. The 9mm and .40 cal. ammo was pretty much gone.

And here's a very small upside to the present madness. We went to Walmart this morning, and, naturally, there's still no t.p. to be had, but there was also no wholewheat bread. Now, Mrs. Paco has had me on wholewheat bread for decades, and I like it, but today, there was nothing but Merita white bread. Oh, joy in the morning! When I used to stay with my grandmother as a kid for a few weeks every summer, this is the bread we toasted for breakfast. Then we spread grandma's homemade apple or grape jelly on it. Nothing better than toasted white bread with jelly (except for bacon or ham on yeast rolls - and granny had those, too!) So, today, we made the sacrifice and picked up a couple of loaves of Merita (I can almost smell that bread toasting tomorrow morning!)

No lie

If the feds ever come after me, I'm going to ground. How can you expect even a reasonable shot at justice when the government sees fit to hire, and keep on the public payroll for (at least) 22 years, an ideology-obsessed prick like former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner, who thinks Trump should be indicted for manslaughter?

Monstrous

We had a bit of a discussion about monster movies going on in the comments section of one of my recent posts, and I mentioned an old favorite of mine, The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms. Here's a classic scene (love the dramatic background music). And btw, I've got a tip for law enforcement: don't go up against a dinosaur with a .38 Special revolver.




Here's Ray Harryhausen talking about this movie, which, I believe, was the first one in which he had total control over the special effects.

(Why, yes, I'd love one, thanks).

CDC priorities screwed up?

Wow, who woulda thunk it? "Instead of Prepping for Pandemic, CDC Focused on Gun Control and Promoting Social Justice".

So, we're perhaps not as prepared for pandemics as we ought to be, plus I've been reading that sales of guns and ammunition - including first-time gun purchases - are going through the roof. Well played, CDC. This is what happens when virtually all of our major government institutions prove to have been captured by left-wing ideologues.

Bruce Bawer has some interesting reflections on the coronavirus and compares the responses (and non-responses) to the pandemic by various countries.

I drove to my favorite gun store in Wilmington, today, to buy...socks, I was buying socks...and one of the owners told me that ammo has been flying off the shelf. I guess people want to make sure that they can shoot their way into their neighbors' houses to take their toilet paper, if necessary.

Random photos

Maggie is taking gymnastics and finally made it to the top of the rope. Never could do that, myself.




We were in my home town of Albemarle yesterday, on family business, and I snapped this picture at the end of the day. Naturally, my cell phone camera and my own lack of skill don't really do the scene justice, but the larger view was so serenely bucolic, I wanted to have something to jog my memory later.

Doesn't matter

Whether we're talking about pandemics or economic dislocations or bear markets or foreign wars or cultural decline or public-school madness or the Deep State or mass shootings or inter-galactic invasion by giant robotic insects, there is no problem facing the American people for which a President Joe Biden is an acceptable solution.

Btw, I was shopping for groceries and sundries at the local Walmart, and apparently people must think that the corona virus gives you the trots. The t.p. shelves were totally empty. No chicken noodle soup, either (well, it supposedly cures everything, so...). It's like everybody wants to be Burt Gummer*.



*Incidentally, Mrs. Paco and I both enjoyed the Tremors series of monster movies. Yeah, they're pretty silly, but I never got over being delighted by Michael Gross's portrayal of the intrepid and well-armed prepper, Burt Gummer. I'm pretty sure I liked him so much in this role because he's 180 degrees different from the squishy liberal dad and public television channel manager he played on the comedy series, Family Ties.

Good stuff from Nick Searcy

Nick Searcy - perhaps best known for playing Deputy Marshal Raylan Givens' boss on Justified - is a long-time Hollywood conservative, and not shy about expressing his views. Here he talks about Hollywood's active hostility toward us "deplorables", and encourages righties not to abandon the film-making industry, but to "get in the game". One of the highlights of the article is his catalogue of nicknames for Elizabeth Warren:
One critic even attacked Krasinski’s hit film A Quiet Place because it shows“a white, gun-toting family fending off strange creatures” — and no, I’m not kidding. A person who is paid to write crap about movies actually wrote that crap.

But Krasinski is publicly an Elizabeth Warren supporter. In 2014, he even hosted a fundraiser for Lieawatha (or Taxagawea or Runs With Mouth Open or Spreading Bull or Fauxcahontas or whatever your favorite triggering name for Warren is). He probably would have voted for Fired For Papoose (that’s my favorite) if her campaign had not gone to the Happy Hunting Ground. But because he makes shows that EVIL TRUMP SUPPORTERS LIKE, he is suspect and must explain himself. He had to reassure Hollywood that he was still in the Cool Kids’ Club.

Joe Biden is going to confiscate my assault rifle? That's hilarious!"

Sincere question

So, why did Tulsi Gabbard never get traction in the Democratic presidential nomination process? She's a liberal, but not a commie like Bernie nor an irascible school marm like Warren nor a corrupt mediocrity like Biden. Not a goofy slob like Klobuchar, not a cardboard cut-out like Buttigieg. Not a billionaire blowhard with no campaign skills like Bloomberg. Her politics are beyond the pale for me, but she's not a sociopath and she's physically attractive, to boot - plus, a veteran. My guess is, she didn't appeal to the imbecile socialist voters, which now makes up an ominous percentage of the Democratic electorate, and the Donk establishment figured that she didn't have the "experience" or recognition among major Democratic voting blocs (and low information voters) to go head to head with Trump. What says the Comment Academy?

Come and get 'em!

Er...if you can find any. Joe Biden wants to take away our "AR-14s".

Pssst! Joe! The Swarm War's over!

Still, possibly relevant in the future. Do the voters know that Biden wants to deprive the Royal Allegiance of one of the most important weapons in its arsenal in the struggle against giant insectoid beings from beyond the Milky Way? I mean, what happens if more of those things show up?

There’s also something important to note about the upcoming primaries: They’re not in the south. The south can breed some pretty extreme leftists, of course, but southerners are generally more conservative. Therefore, it makes sense that their Democrat voters will be a bit more conservative than Democrats in, say, Michigan. Democrat primaries have yet to be held in, among other states, Michigan, Washington, Arizona, Illinois, Ohio, Alaska, Hawaii, Louisiana, Wyoming, Wisconsin, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Oregon, New Jersey, the District of Columbia, and New Mexico, all states that may have a more radical contingent of Democrats than Texas or Arkansas.

This sounds uncomfortably familiar

The story of my life.
“It was really an accident,” says the economist Catherine Tucker of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, one of the study’s authors. “We looked in the data and saw there were some customers who were really good at picking out failures” — so good, in fact, that a newly introduced product was less likely to survive if it attracted these buyers. (And if they bought it repeatedly, its chances of survival were even worse.) Professor Tucker called these people harbingers of failure because, statistically speaking, their fondness for a product heralded its demise.
Golden Corral ham steaks (the most delicious in the world)? I ordered one practically every week for two years back in the late 70's. Discontinued, now, for almost 40 years. Planter's potato chips in a can? Far better than Pringle's; vanished from the shelves a year or so after I grew addicted to them. Lock, Stock and Barrel restaurant (home of the amazing Hawaiian burger, marinated in teriyaki sauce and served with a pineapple slice)? Disappeared maybe two years after I became a regular customer. Flamenco Las Palmas, an absolutely fabulous cigar manufactured in the Canary Islands? Gone (along with almost the entire cigar industry of the Canary Islands).

Well, there's still the Bojangles smoked sausage biscuit. Wait, what?!?

What "price" would that be, Senator Camera Hog? You gonna jump up and down outside the Supreme Court building, hooting and throwing your own feces at everybody?

This is probably just impotent posturing, but I don't think we can be too careful. Maybe the Secret Service or the FBI should be alerted.

Mark Steyn, filling in for Rush Limbaugh today, said that Bloomberg has spent (roughly) the equivalent of American Samoa's GDP on his campaign, and managed to place first in that territory's caucus and take the whacking big total of four of its delegates.

Slow Joe had a big night, taking the lead in delegates with victories throughout the south and also in Massachusetts and Minnesota, then celebrates his success by introducing his wife as his sister.

The night wasn't by any means a total loss for the Bolsheviki, as Bernie Sanders took Vermont, Colorado, Utah and California. As of this writing, Texas is still too close to call.
