A Scolding From Pravda To American Commie & Socialist Wanna Be's (aka: Hippies and Other Ultra Liberals)

I am still amazed that President Obama was reelected. I will wonder, for years, just how stupid the American voter can be to have voted him into office once again. Sure, the U.S. economy will get better but certainly not because Obama built anything to make it better, and definitely not because he rolled up his sleeves to look tough to the sissies who would buy that as being tough, and most assuredly not because of additional government control that he has implemented and absolutely not because of additional debt into which he placed us as a nation. It will get better because all wounds heal with time and our economy will also heal because businesses will make it so and the government will have little to do with that - just look at Ford for an idea of how it will work.

Obama will have had little to do with our economy healing although he will claim all the credit, just wait and see. What he will have had a lot to do with will be the next major economic disaster in the USA whenever it comes. That is because we will be paying off the money we earned (he certainly did nothing to earn the money he plans to bilk from us to support his nonstop government spending of our money), as a country, for decades if not for the whole next century. That means the debt is no so much ours as it is that of our children, their children and their grandchildren. Anyone with half of a bran should have been able to see that had they just read up on a little economic history. Guys who spend like did George W. Bush (let's not forget his ultra liberal government spending policy) and Barack H. Obama, are out and out failures at economics and it is our economy that is failing because of them.
It's not just me nor even all of the other millions of Americans who opposed Obama who think like that but people overseas in countries that are doing fairly well economically think like that too. Certainly, yo must realize I do not mean the Greeks, The Irish, The English, the French, the Spanish, the Italians or any of those in the Balkan nations because their economies suck. The people I mean are those of another world power, those in a place that for years had its economy ruined by communist and socialist principles. I am speaking of folks in Mother Russia herself! My bet would be that most of he hippies and moonbats in this country would not believe that anyone in Russia would think like that but in a moment I will quote an entire article (apparently okay by what I read at the bottom of source page as long as I supply the hyperlink) so you can read it yourself. The link is to an article appearing in Pravda (used to be the official media outlet of the U.S.S.R and is still in business in Moscow) makes me long for the days of Reaganomics.
Click on the link, read the article, pay close attention to what the current president Vladimir Putin is doing and what he plans to do to spur on the Russian economy and tell me - are you missing Ronald W. Reagan right about now. I sure miss him.

Obama's Soviet Mistake

By Xavier Lerma
Obama's Soviet Mistake. 48555.jpeg
Putin in 2009 outlined his strategy for economic success. Alas, poor Obama did the opposite but nevertheless was re-elected. Bye, bye Miss American Pie. The Communists have won in America with Obama but failed miserably in Russia with Zyuganov who only received 17% of the vote. Vladimir Putin was re-elected as President keeping the NWO order out of Russia while America continues to repeat the Soviet mistake.
After Obama was elected in his first term as president the then Prime Minister of Russia, Vladimir Putin gave a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January of 2009. Ignored by the West as usual, Putin gave insightful and helpful advice to help the world economy and saying the world should avoid the Soviet mistake.
Recently, Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term by an illiterate society and he is ready to continue his lies of less taxes while he raises them. He gives speeches of peace and love in the world while he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya and Syria. He plans his next war is with Iran as he fires or demotes his generals who get in the way.
Putin said regarding the military,

"...instead of solving the problem, militarization pushes it to a deeper level. It draws away from the economy immense financial and material resources, which could have been used much more efficiently elsewhere."
Well, any normal individual understands that as true but liberalism is a psychosis . O'bomber even keeps the war going along the Mexican border with projects like "fast and furious" and there is still no sign of ending it. He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia. Obama's fools and Stalin's fools share the same drink of illusion.
Reading Putin's speech without knowing the author, one would think it was written by Reagan or another conservative in America. The speech promotes smaller government and less taxes. It comes as no surprise to those who know Putin as a conservative. Vladimir Putin went on to say:
"...we are reducing taxes on production, investing money in the economy. We are optimizing state expenses.
The second possible mistake would be excessive interference into the economic life of the country and the absolute faith into the all-mightiness of the state.
There are no grounds to suggest that by putting the responsibility over to the state, one can achieve better results.
Unreasonable expansion of the budget deficit, accumulation of the national debt - are as destructive as an adventurous stock market game.
During the time of the Soviet Union the role of the state in economy was made absolute, which eventually lead to the total non-competitiveness of the economy. That lesson cost us very dearly. I am sure no one would want history to repeat itself."
President Vladimir Putin could never have imagined anyone so ignorant or so willing to destroy their people like Obama much less seeing millions vote for someone like Obama. They read history in America don't they? Alas, the schools in the U.S. were conquered by the Communists long ago and history was revised thus paving the way for their Communist presidents. Obama has bailed out those businesses that voted for him and increased the debt to over 16 trillion with an ever increasing unemployment rate especially among blacks and other minorities. All the while promoting his agenda.
"We must seek support in the moral values that have ensured the progress of our civilization. Honesty and hard work, responsibility and faith in our strength are bound to bring us success."- Vladimir Putin
The red, white and blue still flies happily but only in Russia. Russia still has St George defeating the Dragon with the symbol of the cross on its' flag. The ACLU and other atheist groups in America would never allow the US flag with such religious symbols. Lawsuits a plenty against religious freedom and expression in the land of the free. Christianity in the U.S. is under attack as it was during the early period of the Soviet Union when religious symbols were against the law.
Let's give American voters the benefit of the doubt and say it was all voter fraud and not ignorance or stupidity in electing a man who does not even know what to do and refuses help from Russia when there was an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Instead we'll say it's true that the Communists usage of electronic voting was just a plan to manipulate the vote. Soros and his ownership of the company that counts the US votes in Spain helped put their puppet in power in the White House. According to the Huffington Post, residents in all 50 states have filed petitions to secede from the Unites States. We'll say that these Americans are hostages to the Communists in power. How long will their government reign tyranny upon them?
Russia lost its' civil war with the Reds and millions suffered torture and death for almost 75 years under the tyranny of the United Soviet Socialist Republic. Russians survived with a new and stronger faith in God and ever growing Christian Church. The question is how long will the once "Land of the Free" remain the United Socialist States of America? Their suffering has only begun. Bye bye Miss American Pie! You know the song you hippies. Sing it! Don't you remember? The 1971 hit song by American song writer Don McLean:
"And, as I watched him on the stage my hands were clenched in fists of rage.
No angel born in Hell could break that Satan's spell
And, as the flames climbed high into the night to light the sacrificial rite, I saw...
Satan laughing with delight the day the music died
He was singing, bye bye Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry
Them good ol' boys were drinking whiskey and rye, singing...
This'll be the day that I die
This'll be the day that I die
So, the question remains:
How long will America suffer and to what depths?

That was some read, wasn't it. Hard to believe that piece came out of a Russian paper. Well, it should be hard to believe if you lived through the Cold War and know how it used to be in the USSR (Russia).
I have got to agree with the author, Obama and his lackeys have missed the boat. The communist/socialist experiment has failed with regard to how the economies of those countries went. Even the still communist Red China has seen the light when it comes to its economy. There are more capitalist and free market policies carried out in China than ever before and because of it, they are on the rise as a world power. They do not borrow money to spend on their economy, they lend money for foolish world leaders like Obama to spend. They realize that less government interference in the economy is the way to go, less government spending on social programs can only help a nation to prosper and get and keep its people gainfully employed and that they should not spend with reckless abandon. They know it, just as the Russians know it, just as we continually seem to be unable to grasp that concept unless we are more conservative in our outlook.The liberals, they have it arse backwards and for some reason they love it.
Hat tip to Peter Q for making me aware of that one. Too bad Pete does not blog.

Shotgun Gauges Explained - From A Woman's Perspective

I don't visit YouTube all that often. Enough to watch videos now and then and enough to find some fun videos to embed here on the blog and, of course, whenever I upload one of my own videos to it. When I do visit to view videos it is mostly videos that someone else has sent me in an email or to view gun videos I seek out. Almost every time I visit YouTube to to search for a gun video, I come up with results that include videos of Heather Lacroix having shooting fun.

Today was no exception, I typed Winchester Model 37 into my browser and came up with a link list including a link to a YouTube video about that model. Among the other videos, linked to on the page on which that video showed up,  was the one I have embedded here. It shows her shooting .410, 20, 12 and 10 gauge shotguns. All I can say  is that it sure looks and sounds as if she is having lots of fun regardless of the sore shoulder she suffers.

While the men will enjoy looking at Heather, the women, at least the married ones, should enjoy her commentary on the uses for each gauge shotgun (note the .410 designation is actually a bore size and not a gauge size as in other shotguns).

All the best,
Glenn B

Whoops - I Missed National Ammo Day...

...and all I can think is "So What". In fact, I missed out on buying g any ammunition during all of National Ammo Week; it was extended to a week so that anyone not being able to make a purchase on the actual day would have a chance to join in). National Ammo Day has a purpose: to show support for out right to keep and bear arms and to support ammunition manufacturers, distributors and dealers (in addition to just maybe expanding your ammo cache or getting you to go out and shoot).

National Ammo Day is called a buycot. Supporters of the second Amendment are urged to go out and make an ammunition purchase of at least 100 rounds (per person) from local gun shops, sporting good stores and the like. Note the importance of the word 'local' in that previous sentence. This day was intended, I believe, to show support for local, smaller sized, dealers - the mom & pop gun store. If I remember right, it was initiated, by Kim Du Toit, in the spirit of helping out the mom and pop type dealers as opposed to supporting places like Walmart (many of which sell firearms and ammunition). I rarely shop Walmart for ammunition but do shop there for it sometimes (not my local Walmart as they do not stock guns & ammo). Walmart has extremely competitive ammo prices but usually has a very limited variety of any given caliber of it.  I would actually prefer to support my local gun stores and the people who work i them and run them but there is a problem that makes doing so unfeasible for me.

Many if not all of the gun shops I have visited in my area, in my opinion, are pretty much thieves disguised as legitimate businesses. In them, I have seen ammo with a selling price of from 1 1/2 to 3 times the price (and maybe even higher) than I would pay elsewhere, a limited stock of different brands in like calibers, a shortage or total lack of ammo in calibers which I need, long waits for special order ammo, an uppity attitude expressed by most of the shop workers (this seems to be a common gun store employee's affliction) and almost never do they sell bulk ammo. So, the places I usually shop are: from home and the convenience of my laptop by shopping online, at large sporting goods stores or at gun shows.

I realize that smaller shops often have a higher overhead to profit ratio and have to sell at higher prices to stay in business. I would not mind paying a bit of a premium, say maybe 10% higher than where I normally shop, to a local dealer but I do not pity any businessman enough by the balderdash that he has to pay for stock, rent, salaries, insurance premiums, electricity, taxes and therefore has to charge exorbitant prices to stay afloat, all the while complaining how tough it is to make a dime.
When a twenty round box of Remington brand, CoreLokt, 200 grain, soft point ammo goes for right around $25 online, at Walmart or at a gun show, then why would anyone (in their right mind) pay a local dealer $35 to $55 for that same box of ammo?

Really now, why would you consider buying from a small local shop with prices being that much higher? For me it is no brainer especially in light of how much ammo I buy annually, I look for the best bargains I can find. Now my idea of the best bargain is not all about price - as I said above I would pay a higher price at local gun shops considering all things. My idea of a good bargain includes very competitive pricing, shipping costs, reliability of the dealer to have what I want or to be able to get it, ease of the purchase process, the courtesy of the salespeople and excellent customer service. I find that the best deals therefor are those I find online with certain online ammo dealers. Prices available online usually either cannot or will not be matched by small local dealers.

Yes, that includes with shipping. Now, if you are at all familiar with online ammo purchases then you realize that shipping can add a lot to the price of a single box of rounds. For example, as I write this article, that box of .35 Remington I described above, is available from CheaperThanDirt for exactly $25.11 but shipping adds another $12.68 bringing the total to $37.79. It looks as if my local mom and pop gun stores, at least the one selling it for about $35 a box, may even have a somewhat better price but let's not forget local sales tax of .0865%. That would make their lowest price a total of $38.03. Wow, they actually come in with a slightly better price than the big online dealer, at least the one local dealer who has it at that price. Maybe you are wondering why I usually still do not buy from the local gun store.

You see, each box of that ammo that I buy from the local guy, goes for the same price. When I buy 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 boxes of that ammo, I can just times that price buy however many boxes I buy from a local dealer. The same thing sort of happens at Cheaper than Dirt, they too charge buy multiples of how many individual boxes I buy. Yet, there is a difference, a big one in terms of overall price. The shipping, from CheaperThanDirt and many other online dealers is for a complete order and not based upon whatever was the multiple of boxes you decided to purchase. Yes it can go up, as you order more, but it is usually based upon the whole order price and based on from which warehouse they are shipping (they have a number of warehouses). So, while shipping costs $12.68 for that lone box of ammo, it costs he exact same amount if I decide to buy 3 boxes or 5 boxes of it. That means, if I buy three boxes of the Remington CoreLokt, in .35 Remington caliber, at a local gun store, it is going to cost me  $114.08 in total. The same purchase fro an online dealer like Cheaper than Dirt will cost, in total, $88.01. I think the wait of from a few days, to a week, to receive the ammo from Cheaper Than Dir is well worth the wait. After all, I will have saved $26.07 on that purchase from the local to the online dealer. That is more than enough to get another box of the same ammo, from CheaperThanDirt, with .96 cents left over (because the shipping for even 4 boxes remains at $12.68).

That kind of price difference, combined with a wide variety of available ammo, a pretty good attitude on the part of CTD's customer service department and reliable shipping from them assures that CheaperThanDirt will get much more f my business than a local dealer. Now, if by some chance, I was only going to buy a single box of ammo, or if I needed a box of ammo right away, I might buy it at a small mom and pop gun shop. The thing is, when it comes to me buying ammunition, I rarely buy just a single box of it and I tend to plan ahead with ammo purchases and thus do not usually need it very quickly. Besides that, I cannot stand the stuff they tell me at a gun store if I mention how high the price seems: gasoline prices are up and thus shipping ammo has gone up and was added to the price, they cannot come down at all on price if I buy multiple boxes of ammo (yet they add a premium for shipping onto each and every box even though they are not charged a flat rate shipping per box), how tough it is to make a profit while the store owner is driving a $50,000 plus automobile.

I have made sure, in past years, to buy ammo almost every time National Ammo Day (or week) came around. I forgot about it this year and to tell the truth, considering where I live and the ammo prices at my local dealers, it was not all that bad of a thing to have missed buying 100 rounds or more on that day. I have nothing against the concept of helping out small business owners, I am all for it if they are honest, courteous, hard working and offer reasonable prices. It is just that, I cannot see supporting local price gouging opportunists. I guess my search,  for a mom and pop gun shop within 5 miles of home and that has reasonable prices, will have to continue. There has got to be one out there.

As far as National Ammo Day goes, I will probably participate again next year to support the concept if not so much as to support local crooks gun and ammo dealers.

All the best,
Glenn B
