The Democrats are still hammering away at Trumps warnings, saying that all is light and rainbows, and there is no call for people to be anxious. I think they should adopt this song as their convention theme music.
In the meantime, the Iranian shooter in Munich, Ali Sonboly, has everyone perplexed. Why would a Moslem just go off and kill Germans. Only white Germans, as far as I can tell. The press was attributing the shootings to "Nazi's" but that didn't pan out too well for them. Turns out the guy used a Glock 17. It's virtually impossible for a German to buy a Glock 17 legally, and it's totally impossible for a 19 year old to do so. But this character got one. Kind of goes along with the thought that banning guns disarms law abiding people, but doesn't inconvenience bad guys who want one, overly much.
Today in Reutlingen, Germany, a Syrian refugee attacked people on the street with a machete. He carved up three people, one of whom, a young pregnant woman, died. The German police are not calling this a terror attack either. Of course, if they did call either of these Islamic Terror, it would not go down well with Merkel. Got to cover your rear if you work for the government, so you do what you're told.
Here in the U.S., it's "guns" not Islamic Terrorism. In Germany, it's "the Nazi's." The French are about the only people willing to call a spade a spade.
What about those evil Russians! Can you believe they hacked into the Democratic National Party headquarters and then planted a bunch of emails making it look like the DNC was doing all it could to stab Sanders in the back, and get the nomination for Hillary! Then they leaked the fake messages so Hillary would look bad! My God, the insidious devils!
Well, at least that is what the Democratics Big Wheels are saying. ABC , one of the most left wing of the MSM and a big fan of Hillary's, is apparently not buying it. When they did the story, both the host and the special reporter started laughing right there on the screen. The special reporter said that there was not one shred of evidence to back up "their story" which I found an interesting choice of words.
It's clearly B.S. Everybody knew that was going on, but it was fun hearing some of the particulars. Like the plan to plant a correspondent in a news conference who would ask Sanders if he was an atheist. The DNC official writing that one "sensed" that Sanders was not a "real Jew" and should be outed as an atheist.
But lets blame the Russians anyway. That's what our government has been doing every time it needs to distract people in this country from some new screw up or faux pau.
Couldn't take Spike out at all today. Ferrets can be killed by excessive heat , they have no tolerance for it. To tell the truth, I didn't go out much either. But watching the news, across the country things are really tough. Thousands of people are out of power in New York, while the city is roasting them with the urban heat plume. In the west horrific fires are burning in several states , People are losing their homes, and the news says some of them didn't bail out soon enough and got burnt alive. The fire people already found one vehicle that didn't make it and expect more.
After much travail, I got my can of 5.56 I ordered this week delivered, it came yesterday. I met the FED EX guy down by the mailboxes. Since we have no one to maintain the "county road" it has gone to hell. The old guy who used to do it with his tractor is no more. I doubt the FED EX truck could have gotten up even the first climb, let alone to my gate. I don't want those guys to start gaffing off my deliveries because it's such a problem getting to my place., It has already happened once. So I am meeting them down on the hard surface road now.
I took 44 rounds and was going to put them through my two AR-15's today. But it was just too hot, even under the trees. Another time. All this ammo is reloadable so it's not so bad to fire some of it, just to make sure everything is "Ichiban". 一番
So that's it. Nothing else to report from the mountains.
