Slow burn

This past year as regards the lack of ammunition for firearms has been really frustrating. With life problems in the past I was generally able to structure a ‘work-around’. If something wasn’t available in my town I’d go to the one next door. If they didn’t have it I’d order it. I was even willing to travel out of state. There was usually a way if you wanted to work hard enough, drive far enough, or think smart enough.

But this one had me flummoxed. The government doesn’t want you to have ammo. The producers want to keep the squeeze on to put prices through the roof. The stores? I don’t know what their problem was. You can’t make money with zero sales. These “shortages” happen every few years. These companies never take action to prepare for or alleviate the shortages. They are always completely blindsided. Its like they enjoy giving a big middle finger to their customers and make sky-high profits for a year or two at your expense.

I said to myself, “Never again”. Every month or two I’m going to keep buying from one of my online sellers. I’ll stock up on primers. I won’t be buying American, and I won’t be buying from the local stores. You want a war? You got it. Not one penny to you price gouging sons a bitches. I won’t be buying these brands ammo:

  • Winchester
  • Remington
  • CCI Blazer
  • Federal

And I won’t be buying from these stores:

  • Theisen’s
  • Scheel’s
  • Bass Pro
  • Fleet Farm
  • Sportsman’s Warehouse

The producers and their co-conspirators in this price gouging scheme can go to hell. This ain’t going to happen to me again. I’ll buy:

  • Aguila
  • TulAmmo
  • Armscor
  • Igman
  • Fiocchi (the Italian made ‘red box’)
  • Sellier & Bellot

Is the Global Ponzi scheme unraveling?

Mark Levine, Buck Sexton, even Janet Yellen is beginning to talk about “inflation”. She gets it wrong of when she equates inflation with rising prices (inflation of course is simply inflating the money supply with a fiat currency). Average cost of a new home is up $36K due to skyrocketing lumber costs. Cars and trucks are being shipped to dealers without chips, “We’ll get them to you later.” Max and Stacy in the video talk about “shrink” inflation, producers are trying to hide it by keeping the “price” the same while shrinking the size of the product in the package.

Party like its 1929!” The point of this post is to piss in the wind obviously. Its to warn you that the dollars you hold are about to be worth a lot less. I would use those dollars now to buy the commodities you will need in the future. Not only will you be needing that food or toiletries anyway, but chances are real good they won’t even be on the shelf in the near future, even if you could afford them.

Americans like me felt the Toilet Paper Apocalypse was the end of the world a year ago. It took a full year to get shelves restocked for something as low tech as toilet paper! Can you imagine what’s coming with food shortages? Things like milk and meat require real care in transportation and storage. Can you imagine what’s going to happen as power outages increase? 5 chicken processing plants have burned the past year. Guess what’s going to happen to the price of chicken?

If you know nothing, I’d be watching a few prepper channels. A garden plot. Some stored water. Some canned food. A couple of gas cans with gasoline in them away from the house. A reliable gun with ammo. Toiletries. And most importantly, a network. Those clowns in Congress aren’t going to do anything. They can’t agree on a lunch menu. They think January 6 was an insurrection.

Marjorie Taylor Greene

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia’s 14th District (on the right) with the winners of an art contest there. I think she is one of the best Representatives to the U.S. House this country has ever seen (or will ever see). If she can just avoid Swamp Disease, she’ll be a good one. You can tell how good she is my how much the establishment media hates her.

Growing up in my formative years (before I knew they were all full of shit and the media was liars), the quintessential “politician” to me was Utah Senator Orrin Hatch. With his silver hair and urbane good looks the Sunday shows loved him. He was nice and moderate and had never done anything after 50 years in Washington. Their kind of Republican. The establishment media just loved him.

He was quite rich (you always wonder how they got so fabulously wealthy after spending their entire adult life in Washington), and it showed. He must have got his haircut once a week. His suits had to have cost over a $1,000 a shot. One of the things I had never seen before was this pin he wore through the knot of his very expensive tie.

I had to assume the knot in his tie was in danger of spontaneously unraveling if he didn’t have that pin going through it, holding it all together. His sophistication was unimpeachable. He talked in this measured and clipped tone that just reeked of couth. He had couth out the wazoo. There was no one couthier.

And I’ll take Marjorie Taylor Greene and all her faux pas over an idiot like Orrin Hatch every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

Giuliani: 30 Years Of Evidence Of The “Biden Crime Family Violating Our Laws” Is Why They Want To Put Me In Jail

In the book Fahrenheit 451, when the Fire Department is called, they’re not called to put out a fire, but to start one. A book has been discovered that contains wrong think, some form of truth that needs to be destroyed. The fire department no longer performs expected tasks. Such is the case with the modern incarnation of the Department of Justice. Justice is the last thing to be found there. Ask Paul Manafort, or General Flynn.

Ask the January 6 rioters that are being held without bail or were shot dead (Ashli Babbitt) by Capitol Police (who is not being charged for shooting an unarmed person). In contrast to 5 years of rioting by Antifa and BLM who have never been prosecuted. Despite trying to burn down police and Federal Buildings after locking the occupants inside, and many many other felonies.

DOJ has become a politicized hit squad, justice has nothing to do with their actions.

[As a funny little side note, at the end of the raid Giuliani asks the FBI: “Why aren’t you taking these 3 hard drives? Don’t you want them?” (the warrant required them to take all electronic devices) The FBI said: “Why? What are they?” Giuliani: “Hunter Biden’s laptop.” FBI: “No! No!“]

Interesting shift in ammo supply

Finally after a year of the pandemic, there’s been some movement in the ammo supply in central Iowa. Nothing is “over” of course, but I’m at least seeing signs of hope. Which is strange as I’ve said before, 100% of the people use toilet paper (which has been over for awhile), but only 3% – 6% of the people are active shooters. And re-loaders are even a smaller group than that. So why the shortage going into its second year?

From this video and talking to other shooters, Bass Pro and Sportsman’s Warehouse are getting the reputation of being a little deceptive. They’re alleged to be letting their employees scoop up what little supply comes in. That makes sense from what I’ve seen. Big box stores getting in 10 boxes of 9mm? That’s ridiculous. 1 brick (10 – 100 packs) of primers? That’s a joke. Those stores on a weekend could sell 3,000 boxes of 9mm. They could sell a 1,000 bricks of primers.

Then most of these stores act like the only ones who can make primers are Winchester, CCI, Remington and Federal. Why? These stores regularly sell firearms related products from Mexico, Philippines, Brazil, Argentina, Russia, Croatia, Turkey, Germany, Czech Republic and others, so why not primers? None of this makes any sense. You can’t make money if you don’t have product to sell. Why aren’t they going overseas to get that product?

Why this ridiculous loyalty to domestic producers who every 10 years gut your profit margin? I do not get it.

But as to the movement I’m seeing, last Saturday Scheel’s had boatloads of .223 rifle ammunition. On Wednesday they had a ton of 9mm. Theisen’s yesterday had a good amount of Aguila 9mm and .22 LR. Walmart isn’t getting in .22 every week, but a couple of times a month lately. And why this is significant, is that like those SOB’s running the gun show this weekend in Ames, the more supply the big box stores have at an honest price, the more pressure it puts on the gun shows to quit their price gouging.

The other bit of ‘movement’ I’ve seen, is that after sitting over a year in bankruptcy, Remington ammunition has been picked up by Vista Outdoors (who also owns Federal, Blazer and CCI). They’ve been producing now for a month or so. Green boxes are hitting the store shelves. So the ammo is starting to show up, God knows when the primers will.

[The other funny thing about all this is “perceptions”. 2 years ago 9mm at rock bottom prices for a box of 50 (Armscor, Blazer, Aguila) was $8 or $9 dollars a box. Now in the middle of the shortage Theisen’s was selling Aguila for $16.99, and we thought that was a great price! Its double what it was 18 months ago.]

That’s strange, American business doesn’t want to make money

There’s been several “head scratchers” to do with this pandemic thing caused by the Wu Flu. One is Fauci and other American scientists connection to the very Wuhan lab where it came from. The funding is one thing, not to mention the meetings that have now been scrubbed from the internet.

You can take any public embarrassment a politician or Hollywood type has and in a day there will be t-shirts and coffee mugs trying to make a buck off of it. Yet this pandemic has caused any number of shortages for products that were ripe for making huge profits! And no one seems interested. N-95 masks, toilet paper, rubbing alcohol, small and large pistol primers, ammunition.

Maybe its just me, but I find it a little odd when capitalists aren’t interested in making money.

Father Charles E. Coughlin

What is the truth? That is such a tough commodity to acquire. Rare. Some people manufacture it, but it is definitely hard to find in its natural state. I’d first heard about Father Coughlin in the ’96 presidential race. I immediately took a liking to him because they were trying to compare the Catholic Patrick Buchanan to him. I knew nothing about the guy but if he was like Pat he must be good.

I still don’t know how to pronounce his name (cough coog cog), why the Irish had to be like that with their pronunciation I don’t know. But all I’ve been able to find out about him so far are characterizations of him. In typical liberal dirt bag fashion, they won’t tell you what he said, only that what he said is “bad“. They say things like fascist, anti-Semitic, racist, and all manner of other things, but they won’t tell you what he said.

So I went to a site that is supposed to be for him. I know for other figures back then, not wanting to fight another one of Europe’s wars automatically made you a fascist wanting to gas the Jews! How they made that leap I don’t know. The bottom line is, why can’t Europe stand on its own two feet? Because they’ve never had to. The powers that be are quite content for American blood to be spilled for them, and American wallets to be emptied protecting them.

Its ironic in a country that supposedly prizes free speech, he was forced off the radio and his magazine was banned from being distributed by the Postal Service under the Espionage Act! So much for free speech when you question the government. It is just ludicrous someone would be so vilified because of their words. It shows how weak the foundation of the governments policies, that they would be so threatened by one man that they had to shut him up. The FCC didn’t exist until his radio show. It was created to force him off the air.

And the website linked above dedicated to his memory? It also smears him with unsubstantiated rumors. Basically his downfall was that he attacked the Federal Reserve, the Income Tax and Hollywood. All key components to keeping this Ponzi scheme going.

It’s okay to celebrate every culture in this country except the one that created it

I like that quote (Matt Braynard – Executive Director of Look Ahead America, former data chief and strategist for Trump for President). It says a ton (metric or English). It highlights to me the confusion the left is having and the mental gymnastics required for their “two legs good, four legs better” world view. All this started with “women’s rights” and now we have men dressing up as women wiping them out on the sports field.

We’re reverting back to “blacks only” dormitories and other campus safe spaces. While we put limits on Asian entries. No statue or remembrance is safe from the antebellum south, yet whites who died to free the brother get no credit. A special amnesty just came through for “migrant” farm workers, putting the seal of approval on the modern day slave.

Max Waters literally calls for violent confrontations, and she won’t even be censured, let alone tossed out of office (freedom firebrand Marjorie Greene has a better chance of removal). As a black female, the only way Waters could be more untouchable was if she was a thespian (likes only women). And all the while, the guy with the job, the guy not rioting, the guy paying for all this, the white guy, gets nothing but dissed.

[in truth “resists taking a bath” also applies to the leftist]

We were a pretty awesome country 50 years ago

We were a pretty awesome country 50 years ago, the rapidity of the decline will make your head snap. How do you do that? Go from the world’s numero uno (number one) economic and military power (not even close), to a banana republic that can’t even hold an honest election? Well the quickest way is by doing what we did. We imported the 3rd world, we became the third world. And no, its not just some crank in Iowa saying it, but Tucker Carlson on FOX News and others are braving the wrath of the intelligentsia to say it also. In much prettier words, but saying it nonetheless. Population replacement. People just weren’t dying quick enough. Even the brainwashing in the schools wasn’t working quick enough, too many failures.

“The reason why multiculturalism exists is to pretend that inferior cultures aren’t inferior and that superior cultures aren’t superior. It’s a way to tell nice lies about rotten cultures and rotten lies about great cultures. And from this, we’ve set ourselves up not only to believe the enemy propaganda that “Islam means peace”, but to propagate it ourselves, all while blaming ourselves for the enemy’s war on us.” – Bosch Fawstin
