Sunday Afternoon In The Park

I spent Sunday afternoon at the gun range, also known as “my brother’s backyard.”

My brother lives out in the country and one advantage is that your neighbors can have some distance.

In a couple of days when the rest of the beans are harvested, he is going to dump a few logs 200 yards out so we shoot the .223.

I started shooting before my brother set up.

This would be my first 120 rounds:

targets

 

Good, but not great.

That’s why it’s called practice.

I do believe though had this been an actual shooting situation, I would be alive or cooking whatever I shot for dinner.

And after all the practice, we get to have the real fun.  Old style shoot out:

Next time we are going to cheat and shoot from the 2o’ line

 

 

 

Shortage of Carny Workers in America??

A story in the mostly useless Chicago Tribune about pay theft by the employer of some carnival workers:

http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-carnival-workers-wage-theft-0810-biz-20160809-story.html

The part of the story that I was interested in was this:

Two of the plaintiffs are South Africans who were brought in by All Star Amusement on temporary work visas called H-2Bs, meant for hospitality and other nonagricultural seasonal jobs. Like with other temporary work visas, including the high-skill H-1Bs and agricultural H-2As, employers wishing to bring in H-2B workers are supposed to establish that there are not enough U.S. workers who are able, willing, qualified and available to do the temporary work and that their wages won’t adversely affect the wages and conditions of U.S. workers.

 

Seriously?? We have to import carnys??

If you don’t think we have a problem with Federal immigration laws……………………..

 

Oh, and off topic, Gary Busey made a good movie called “Carny.”

Sen. Mark Kirk just lost his reelection bid

 

 

“Independent”

“Bipartisan”

“Call for vote on Garland”

“Protecting right to choose”

“Won’t support GOP Presidential candidate”

Kirk has given up any pretense of being a Conservative.  Apparently he forgot who got him elected.  It wasn’t squishy  independents.

I almost fell out of my chair the first time I saw this ad.  I was ready for this to be an SNL parody or primary ad by a challenger.

Sorry to tell you this soon to be former Illinois Senator Kirk,  you have gone far out of your way to insult your  former base and we will not be voting for you again.

It’s a shame that you pay lots of money to consultants that help you make these poor political decisions.  Simple fact, you can’t out liberal a liberal.  Liberals will always vote for the real liberal.

Remaking “Roots”

I recently saw a commercial on television for a remake of the movie “Roots.”  This illustrates one of the greatest faults of Hollywood:  Lack of originality and creativity.  Literally, there must be a hundred thousand great stories that could be made into a movie, but they chose to do a remake.

But, that’s not the issue for today.

There’s at least a generation of people today that did not know there was a fiction book written in the 1970’s that was made into a highly acclaimed television mini-series in 1977.  That fiction book was “Roots” by Alex Haley.

Now the really important part is the fact that most of the people that were alive during the “Roots” phenomena, don’t know today that:

1:            The book was fiction

2:            Alex Haley plagiarized a good portion of the research.

Sadly, many won’t care about that.

I won’t be watching the remake movie so I won’t know how well it will be told that the story is fiction.

But, that won’t matter to the BLM type groups.  They will use this film as agi-prop to promote their class/race warfare agenda.

Black people are not excited about voting for an old white dude or an old white hag, so this movie will help get people agitated

Nope and Hell Nope !!!

noper

 

Getting tired of the trump drones telling me that if I don’t vote for trump, it’s a vote for hillary and if she gets elected, it’s my fault (yeah, like I have that kind of power!!)

Getting tired of being told I have to choose the lesser of two evils.

Kind of like the choice between a shit sandwich or a shit sandwich with cheese.
