  • New study firmly ties hormone use to breast cancer (What a dumb title, as if there were some doubt?)

    More knowledgeable than someone who considers horse hormones and human hormones the same, yes.

    and making lots of money off you. Hormones are hormones.

    Yeah, sure. Testosterone, estrogen, insulin, all the same.

    If they CAN compete, then they don't need a bailout.

    If they CAN'T compete, then they deserve to go under.

    I had a black cat named Herman when I was a teenager. It didn’t play, but it was a phenomenal hunter. Nearly everyday we would find presents that he left. Mice, birds, squirrels and even a full grown rabbit and a full grown crow once. I’ve never seen a cat with that kind of hunting instinct since.

  • Riots in Greece Spark Protests Across Europe

    The riots in Seattle were almost a textbook example of bad police work by those in charge. They hired a security advisory group beforehand who made all sorts of recommendations and then decided to disregard them all. They let things get out of hand because they honestly seemed to think that Seattle was such a peaceful and tolerant city that nothing would happen there, despite knowing that anarchists had arrived in town with the intent of tearing things up. Then when things were really getting rowdy, they got a call from their fellow democrat in the White House telling them they'd better have things under control when he arrived in town the next day, so they responded with an iron fist.

    If they had just planned for unrest in the first place and arrested the troublemakers before things got out of control it all would have been uneventful.

    How about the Aztek? Only now it will be better because it will be built by the government. What a great idea! Just like government cheese is the best cheese, I’m sure government cars will be the best cars.

    Americans didn’t fall for it. They chose it. Just like they chose Clinton twice. They knew he was corrupt, but they did it anyway.

  • FR Gun Club: Sighting In A New Rifle

    I've used that method myself many times. Just to add to what you said, here's a couple of other ways to sight in a rifle in case you don't have a bolt action.

    If you have some sort of action that doesn't allow for boresighting in the manner NVDave described, put your target up at 10 yards, or as close as the range will allow and use a big target. Center your crosshairs on the bull and fire one shot. It probably didn't come close, but there are two ways you can get it very close to zeroed without firing another shot.

    If you have some sort of rest, use bungee cords or have a friend hold it tightly in place with the scope still centered on the bull, (you can do this after you have shot). Then simply adjust the crosshairs until they are centered on the hole your bullet left in the target. You may want to set them a little high depending on your range. You are now roughly zeroed. If this is done right it can be very precise and can result in a near perfect zero with only one shot. You'll want to fire a group to check it and fine tune it anyway though.

    If you don't have any way to keep your rifle steady, then you want to figure out the horizontal and vertical distance between the bull and the bullet hole and figure out the number of clicks necessary for your correction. With a good scope and accurate calculations, this will get you close to zeroed. With a cheap scope, you'll have to repeat this several times. Cheap scopes hardly ever have accurate click adjustments. The adjustments are usually larger than advertised, so if a cheap scope claims to have 1/4" clicks at 100 yards, they're usually 1/2". You won't know until you start making adjustments and seeing what happens, but if you see that your adjustments are overcorrecting, just reduce the number of clicks accordingly.

    Or I suppose it simply could be that I'm reading a selection of Indian articles that would be of interest to an American and that Indian reporters don't have much more insight or understanding of us than we do of them. Perhaps if I read the local or national news my opinion would be different.

    It's kind of like when you read European takes on American politics. You wonder how they can get so much so wrong. I find it's usually not a matter of bias either. They're just somewhat clueless.

    As I see it, there are only a small handful of beneficial things the government does. Building infrastructure is one of them. Now this money probably could be used more effectively by the people who actually earned it, but given the government we soon will have, this would be by far one of the best uses for the money. Otherwise, they might decide to just hand it out like in the last “stimulus”, dole it out as welfare to their presumed constituents or worse yet selectively give it out to hard core leftists like ACORN or LaRaza.

    It sure puts the Saiga 12 to shame. I want one really, really bad. Actually the Saiga 12 does pretty well with either 10 round sticks or 20 round drums. An S12 with an Ace folder on it is one hell of compact little bundle of firepower.

    Doh! Used an “i” instead of a “p” and ended up with italics instead of a new paragraph.

    I listened to Ben Stein on the Medved show the other day and he sounded like an idiot. He actually claimed the treasury could just print money and that it would have no inflationary affect on our currency. He even made some reference to it being like magic. I used to have respect for the man's intellect. I figured he had deluded himself a bit with the creationism, but I still gave him the benefit of the doubt, but after hearing him yesterday it's gone. Apparently he never really figured out that there's no such thing as a free lunch.

    I doubt it. My faith in Indian news sources is very weak. Nothing against India as a country, but their news media seems to get things wrong on a regular basis.

    No. They wanted him elected as president, but once he’s president he’ll be the head of the Great Satan as far as they’re concerned. It’s kind of like how McCain was the darling of the left so long as he was giving his fellow Republicans the shaft, but as soon as he won the nomination he became their enemy and they didn’t pull any punches. Alqaeda wanted us to elect obama only because they saw him as a weaker enemy and since we now appear weak I expect them to try to hit us harder than ever.

    11 And God said, LET THE EARTH BRING FORTH GRASS, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding seed, and the fruit after his own kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: AND IT WAS SO.

    12 AND THE EARTH BROUGHT FORTH GRASS, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

    So that Rastafarian woman I was talking to the other day was right after all.

    Zero tolerance isn’t a bad concept. We should have zero tolerance for some things like pedophilia, rape or communism ;). The problem with zero tolerance in schools is that they usually adopt it in response to something silly and then take it to ludicrous lengths so that a picture of a pirate with a sword becomes a weapon violation.

    For some reason the author does not want the reader to know ISLAM is responsible!

    I think you must be wrong about that. Islam is a religion of peace after all. Just ask the people in NY or Bali or Beslan or Sderot or any of the other fine places where muslims regularly interact with dirty kafirs er... their fellow men, (yeah, that's it).

    All of my guns, of which my right to bear them SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED, were all sold in private sales, and no bill or record of said sale was generated, so I guess the powers that be will just have to take my word for it.

    Same here. What a coincidence! Some nice guy named T-Bone came by and offered to buy them all. Seems he runs a marksmanship club for disadvantaged youth and needed them for some sort of initiation ceremony or something. It's nice to see youth getting involved in sports and the outdoors!
