"Why" he asked rhetorically-

 "Are Democrats so opposed to honest voting?"

"The law would — among other changes — make mail-in voting more difficult by requiring voters to give extra information, bar local officials from sending absentee ballot applications to anyone who did not request one, and end after-hours and drive-through voting."

And as usual from the stories Newsmax uses, it's completely slanted to the left.

She likes it

 Inland M1 carbine barrel date of 9-1942 with all the correct stamping on the stock and metal (that I can see).
Had some FtFeed from the mag he supplied- which looked brand new, so it'll need some wearing in.

The horses and donkeys weren't impressed...

AND- since I can only find ball ammo right now, I'm going to need st get a reloading set-up so I can make bullets like Extreme Cavitator I ran across.
I wonder if it's patented?
Maybe I can take a wedge out of the side so it...'bends' when it hits and get a tumbling action from that...

Your Rule 5 Thursday

 On a Friday again because I'm out on Workers Comp with a thumb injury and am starting to lose track of days... instead of having my days and hours mixed up because of my work schedule.

Anyway, enjoy some long range shooting-

For you who work on vehicles

I'm sure you've noticed this phenomenon before....

Smoke Theory of Electronic Devices
From the basic concept of transmission of electrical energy in the form of smoke, a better understanding of the mysteries of electrical components, especially those manufactured by Lucas, a British manufacturer, is provided.
Theory of smoke-
Smoke is the thing that makes electrical circuits work; we know this to be true because every time one lets the smoke out of an electrical system, it stops working. This has been verified repeatedly through empirical testing by countless EE212 students. When, for example, the smoke escapes from an electrical component (i.e., say, a Lucas voltage regulator or a 741 Op Amp), it will be observed that the component stops working. The function of the wire harness is to carry the smoke from one device to another; when the wire harness "springs a leak", it lets all the smoke out of the system. Once this happens, nothing works afterwards. For example, starter motors were frowned upon in British automobiles for many years, largely because they consume large quantities of smoke, requiring very large wires.
It has been noted that Lucas components are possibly more prone to electrical leakage than either Bosch or generic Japanese electrics. Experts point out that this is because Lucas is British and all things British leak. British engines leak oil, shock absorbers, hydraulic forks and disk brakes leak fluid, British tyres leak air, and the British defense establishment leaks, naturally, British electrics leak smoke.

Rule 5 thursday puzzle on Friday

 Well at least I know my thumb isn't broken. Now we need to see why it's hurting the way it is. MRI soon to be scheduled.

Anyway- that looks like the M-16 I carried- except for the scope and the round barrel shroud.

The World turned Upside Down

Tradition has it that it was the  tune the Brits played at the surrender at Yorktown.

But when shit happens, it can be as quick and unexpected as a pipeline getting hacked.

The Colonial pipeline put almost 1/4 of the country on -at least- limited supplies of gasoline (why it affected airliners using Kerosene I don't know) and showed how some people act.

They probably stored that excess gas with their horde of TP. 

OR a shut down of an entire world because of an overhyped virus.

We're stocking up on food

We have well water- need a generator to supply it (we're working on that)
We don't really use enough gas to have a tank in the yard

Shortages and disruptions are still happening because of lingering affects from the shutdown.

People still are not going to work because the .GOV is paying them not to with our tax Dollars.

Supplies are still on back order- which is changing the dynamics of everything, including used pickups. I was starting to look for one about halfway into the plandemic shutdown, but decided to wait a while. Then I watched the prices rise as the new truck shortage went on............ because of a chip shortage. 

Now I'm seeing the prices of 3/4 ton trucks where I wouldn't pay if there were half the miles on them.

SO............. I'm thinking hard at a restomod. If I have to pay that much for a used truck, why not got with something with style?
I can get a '64 C-10 or 72 F-100 or even a 78 Dodge for less (nothing is cheap anymore) and throw in a crate motor and 5 speed manual -with modern conveniences for a little more than the going price of a 2500 Silverado with 140K miles on it.
