The "I'll take favorite movies for $1,000, Alex" Edition

so anyway, I heard something similar-sounding to tonight's feature this aftrnoon and the jukebox in my heard went straight to this:


Everyone who was anyone in 1970 is in Kelly's Heroes.

The "I can't believe I haven't posted this before" edition...

so anyway, in inter-web net-tubes terms, this is old.  It's age does not diminish the power of the message.  If you haven't seen this before, watch it and take notes.  If you have seen it, watch it again and then go find a progtard and whip their ass with a car antennae from a 1962 Chrysler Imperial.

Anyway, on with the show...

Saturday Night Videos

I gots both of these on vinyl and the hardware to disturb the entire neighborhood...

so anyway, my weekend guilty pleasure is the music programming on my base right wing conspiracy radio station, WAAM.  They run both Bill Bennett and Laura Ingraham (AKA: NPR for RINOS).  I'm just outside the wire of The Peoples' Republic of AnnArbor, NPR for RINOS is the best that I can expect.

The aforementioned noise notwithstanding, Radio Jon D did the following twin-spin this evening.  This is not the version I was looking for, but it appears that every version on the inter-web net-tubes has been bastardized.

Pure, semi-informed speculation

just some thoughts on the news of the day...

so anyway, I'm sure you've seen the news that the FAA has prohibited US flights into Tel Aviv, and that several European airlines have suspended flights to Tel Aviv as well.

Serious You Guys, the terrorist have won.

Having proven that they can shoot down any air-liner, anywhere, they have made El Al the safest airline on the planet.

Imagine Hamas (or the Ukrainian separatist) targeting an El Al air-liner.   Can you imagine the Israeli response?  I can.  The "Wrath of God" comes to mind.  Given the choice between El Al and Quantas, I'm flying El Al.  Air France, Delta, US Air, et al can all be targeted because western civilization no longer has balls.

The Israelis do.

We live in interesting times.  Which sucks.  I have twin 14-YO daughters and a 10-YO son.  This was not the world I meant to leave them.  All I can offer is a ridiculous stock-pile of ammo and a certain cold deposition.

The double feature traffic safety edition...

so anyway, I encourage you to watch both of these short videos, especially if you have teenage drivers in your life.  The first one came to me via an e-mail thread, the second if from a link* on Ace's sidebar.


The next one is by New Zealand's "Safer Journeys" traffic safety campaign and it is OUTSTANDING


I've watched the second one a number of times and even knowing how it ends it is still startling.

Drive safe

This is the post...

...in which your host does The Happy Dance™

so anyway, I stopped at Walmart on my way home from work this evening (because it had been almost 48 hours since I had been in a Walmart) and as per my usual, my first stop was the ammo case in the sporting goods section.  When I go there, there were a couple of clerks off-loading a cart full of ammo.  Jokingly, I asked if they had any .22LR, expecting to be laughed at.  The Walmart dude looked at me and said "The 330 round box or the 550?"

"The 550 round box.  How many can I have?"

Yes, my phone's camera sucks
The last time I was able to purchase .22LR was early in December. 2012.  The weekend after Thanksgiving, 2012, I bought a 550 round box of .22LR on a whim.  Days later, the Sandy Hook shooting occurred, and in the aftermath, all the ammo went away.

Today was the first time I've seen .22LR on the shelf in 15 or 16 months.  If the .22LR supply is returning, I see a Mossberg 715t in my near future.
