First I’d like to ask a question, are Colts really three times better than S&W? I’ve never fired a Colt revolver but I really like S&W. I just don’t see how a used, stainless .44mag is $700 when it’s S&W but $1,500-$2500 when it’s Colt.

S&W is about $100+/- more than Ruger and I think that’s about right.

Is it just because they don’t make them anymore? Because I’ll tell you, unless the Colt comes with a happier ending than a S&W, I just can’t see it being worth that much more.

 

I wishfully hoped that they wouldn’t use all the terrorist-catching laws that were ONLY GOING TO BE USED TO CATCH TERRORISTS!!!!!!! on people who aren’t terrorists.

Law enforcement wants to charge a Perry County man with committing terrorist activity after he stole 911 communications equipment.

Frank Thomas Aldridge is in custody after breaking into a 911 communications building back on Dec. 9, 2016.

Aldridge found out he couldn’t resell the equipment he stole, so he threw it in a nearby creek.

I know, when I wishfully think I make an ass out of me and me. Especially when I wishfully think that gov’t folks won’t get all mission creepy.

 

France is trying to be my friend, I hope this isn’t just wishful thinking.

Leading French Presidential Candidate Emmanuel Macron has invited the entire US climate science community to relocate to France.

Thank you French socialist dude, I sincerely hope they take you up on your offer.

 

Romanians are wishing for a non-corrupt gov’t and thinking that they’re gonna have to stay serious to get it.  They’ve been protesting for about 2 weeks over

The decree, decriminalised the abuse of office in cases where the damages were less than 200,000 leu (about 43,200 euros) and was coupled with a mass pardon for non-violent convicts serving short jail terms.

What that means is that if a politician takes a bribe for less than about $50k, no harm no foul. And pols in jail would be let out.

Obviously, their gov’t is pretty similar to ours.

Despite the outrage over the proposed changes to the criminal code. the government is refusing to quit. It insists the public has misunderstood its reform bid

Yeah, we get that shit here too.

I wish them luck. Romanian pols might want to review history, Europeans do not get a Trump, they get a Hitler or a Ceausescu and light poles start to get decorated.

 

Via Cold Fury, we find this bit of hilarity.

A French street artist was severely beaten up in Paris after refusing to remove a work of art calling for coexistence between Islam, Judaism and Christianity.

When I mention the stupidity of those COEXIST signs, I’m called a hater, if you click you will see that the French media tried to obfuscate the issue, but it’s unobfuscatable. He should have stuck with the traditional form.

Fakenewser takes time off from fakenewsing to do a little affirmation/wishful thinking!

Headline

A new, liberal tea party is forming. Can it last without turning against Democrats?

I doubt it, why?

Grass-roots movements can be the life and death of political leaders.

Yeah, about that.

Political action committees that fundraised for President Barrack Obama during the 2012 presidential election, bused protesters to Republican town hall events nationwide earlier in February, according to a Sunday report from The Washington Post.

 

It makes it funnier that the Wash Post are the fakenewsers praising the TOTALLY GRASSROOTS!!!!!!  group while they also noticed that Obama was busing in those totally grassroots protestors.

Back to the original fakenews, so long as you think the Tea Party a top-down, paid for, astro-turfed group of rioters willing to travel around the country to get their violence and stupidity on then they’re spot on. Which is what they thought the tea party was.

 

What I can’t figure out is whether or not Canada gets any US TV channels.

U.S. border guards would get new powers to question, search and even detain Canadian citizens on Canadian soil under a bill proposed by the Liberal government.

As we’re trying to limit the power of the feds here the Canadians are giving our feds more power!?!?!?!

Don’t encourage them you idiots! It’s only going to make our job here more difficult! Idjits.

 

Speaking of Canadia, this bit of Tolerance Love and Peace is hilarious.

While the men prayed, she (Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne V) sat patiently in the back corner of the mosque waiting to say the words many in the room were so thankful to hear.

The words they were so thankful to hear? “We will adhere to the tenets of your religion.” Actually, she said something else, but you know what they heard.

She sat in a corner in the back of the mosque while the men fucking prayed and she didn’t fucking leave. She didn’t seem to even realize they were making sure she knew her place.

 

As we watch California flooding caused by corrupt, CA pols… global worming, let’s focus on what’s important.

I think I can help with this question.

Headline on a story about of the the ‘discoveries’ that global warmmongers lie.

How can we trust global warming scientists if they keep twisting the truth

 

You can’t. They lie.

 

You always become what you fight!

In an impassioned plea, Mr Cook, boss of the world’s largest company (CEO of Apple V), says that the epidemic of false reports “is a big problem in a lot of the world” and necessitates a crackdown by the authorities and technology firms.

    Are you talking about single-action Colt revolvers? The company still makes them. I imagine the inflated price is based on the name and historical associations. I haven’t seen one close up, but I doubt that they’re any better quality than S&W or Ruger, or at least, they’re probably not so much better as to justify that kind of price differential.

    On the other hand, if you’re talking about double-action, I think Colt’s only manufacturing the Cobra, in .38 Spl. I like .38 caliber, but i sure as hell wouldn’t pay a ton of money for one.

      I’m talking double action/single action. Modern revolvers.
      They stopped making .44 mag and .357mag, all they make now are a .38 special snubbie.

      The two I see are King Cobra and Python. You don’t see King Cobras for less than about $1600 and the Python is at least $2k and normally close to $2500.

      I love the 629 and I’d have sex with my .500 if the sight was removable so I have to wonder if Colt is that much better.

    I love that old apple commercial … nostalgic hotassery … the spoof that was done with Big Sister Hillary was great too …

    I’ve got a couple of S&W .41 Magnums that cost under a thousand each. Two grand for a .38 snubbie? Not seein’ it.

  4. Paco says:

    In that case, yeah, you’d pay a bundle. I have a Python .357 that my father handed down to me, but it’s a commemorative issue that you can, but probably aren’t supposed, to shoot. Makes a real pretty paper-weight, though.

    • Veeshir says:

      That sounds like a nice piece. If you ever shoot it tell if it’s much nicer than your .41 mag.
      I go to NOVA in the summer, I want to shoot that .41mag. I’ll let you shoout my Wildey.
