Gertrude Stein, "A Very Valentine"
Very fine is my valentine.
Very fine and very mine.
Very mine is my valentine

As of yesterday I have been married to my wife for a grand
total of 29-years. She is very fine. And mine.
Here is something for those of you who would like to build
yourself an AR rifle from scratch:
Cast a 100% ready to assemble high-strength polymer
Freedom-15 AR15 lower receiver at home!
Simple to use kit, NO MACHINING required! Accepts mil-
spec lower components.
In less than 2 hours, you can cast your own Freedom-15
AR15 100% ready to assemble lower receiver.
Polymer recharge kits are available. Cast an unlimited
amount of UNREGISTERED 100% Freedom-15 AR15 lower
receivers in the privacy of your own home.
Further customize your Freedom-15 AR15 lower reciever by
adding one of our eight colors, or custom mix your own
color to taste.

5, 10 & 15 unit pour kits.
$330 for the kit, includes enough to make five lower receivers!
I have thought building an AR rifle (or five!) would be a
fun project. There are lots of "everything but the lower
receiver" kits all over the place. I'm not super crazy
about the prairie-dog round, but the military seems to
be okay with it, so what do I know?
Yet another SJW tries to control what we can read:
Banned by the Publisher
Or, Thank God for Jeff Bezos
by Nick Cole
I launched a book this week and I went Indie with it.
Indie means I released it on Amazon via Kindle Direct
Publishing. I had to. My Publisher, HarperVoyager, refused
to publish it because of some of the ideas I wrote about
in it. In other words, they were attempting to effectively
ban a book because they felt the ideas and concepts I was
writing about were dangerous and more importantly, not in
keeping with their philosophical ideals. They felt my
ideas weren't socially acceptable and were "guaranteed to
lose fifty percent of my audience" as related back to me
by my agent. But more importantly... they were "deeply
The book is CRTL ALT Revolt!. I read it yesterday,
and enjoyed it immensely. It was funny, dramatic,
and imaginative. I'm pretty sure you would like it
too, and it will only cost you $0.99. Dang!
for Amazon Kindle
Now, I must confess I wasn't able to figure out what was
so "deeply offensive". Perhaps it was that most of the
characters tried to act rationally during the unfolding
of the events? We know that people who manage to belive
in such non-existent things as "social justice" somehow
fail to believe in actually existent things like reason.
Kinda funny, eh? Not funny-ha-ha, but funny-pathetic I
mean. I am going to get some more of Mr. Cole's books.
And finally, I found this in the comments section of
Sarah Hoyt's blog:
Abbott and Costello explain unemployment
COSTELLO: I want to talk about the unemployment rate in
ABBOTT: Good "subject". Terrible "times". It's about 9%.
COSTELLO: That many people are out of work?
ABBOTT: No, that's 16%.
COSTELLO: You just said 9%.
ABBOTT: 9% Unemployed.
COSTELLO: Right, 9% out of work.
ABBOTT: No, that's 16%.
COSTELLO: Okay, so it's 16% unemployed.
ABBOTT: No, that's 9%...
COSTELLO: WAIT A MINUTE. Is it 9% or 16%?
ABBOTT: 9% are unemployed. 16% are out of work.
COSTELLO: If you are out of work you are unemployed.
ABBOTT: No, you can't count the "Out of Work" as the
unemployed. You have to look for work to be unemployed.
COSTELLO: But ... they are out of work!
ABBOTT: No, you miss my point.
COSTELLO: What point?
ABBOTT: Someone who doesn't look for work can't be counted
with those who look for work. It wouldn't be fair.
COSTELLO: To who?
ABBOTT: The unemployed.
COSTELLO: But they are ALL out of work.
ABBOTT: No, the unemployed are actively looking for
work...Those who are out of work stopped looking. They gave
up. And, if you give up, you are no longer in the ranks of
COSTELLO: So if you're off the unemployment rolls, that
would count as less unemployment?
ABBOTT: Unemployment would go down. Absolutely!
COSTELLO: The unemployment just goes down because you
don't look for work?
ABBOTT: Absolutely it goes down. That's how you get to 9%.
Otherwise it would be 16%. You don't want to read about
16% unemployment do ya?
COSTELLO: That would be frightening.
COSTELLO: Wait, I got a question for you. That means
there's two ways to bring down the unemployment number?
ABBOTT: Two ways is correct.
COSTELLO: Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job?
COSTELLO: And unemployment can also go down if you stop
looking for a job?
COSTELLO: So there are two ways to bring unemployment
down, and the easier of the two is to just stop looking
ABBOTT: Now you're thinking like an economist.
COSTELLO: I don't even know what the hell I just said!
ABBOTT: Now you're thinking like a politician.
Oh, and, people who study the sun are starting to say
sun is going into hibernation.
Oh boy. If it's not one thing it's another.
