How Do You Like Your Peons - Charbroiled Crispy or Lightly Grilled

Saw an article - about a Mexican drug cartel, Nueva Familia Michoacana, over at Knuckledraggin and could not resist swiping it for my own commentary. The cartel allegedly has been executing the local peasantry when the poor slobs have refused to lend their support to the cartel. What the cartel did to their victims is much akin to what you might expect from ISIS with maybe even a bit more of a sicko twist. They have been kidnapping, killing, dismembering the locals. Then they have been carving their logo into the body parts and also grilling some of them. After that they distribute the body parts to the remaining local campesinos and other poor slobs to instill fear of the cartel into them. Read about it here at the original source over at Breitbart.

As I commented over at Knuckledraggin:

"For once the warning about graphic photos was correct. It seems the whole fucking world has become afflicted by the same disease, the one causing people around the globe to go absolutely totally fucking psycho crazy for personal gain of power.

Brings to mind the robot Gort from the 1951 classic The Day The Earth Stood Still. I think if he were on today’s world, no matter what he might be ordered to do by Klaatu, he would destroy this godforsaken place in a nanosecond."

I'd end with my usual closing of "All the best" but how the fuck can I say that after seeing that shit!

Stay safe my friends,

45-70 Gov't. - I Just Gotta Say Wow...

...if only because I just cleaned the bore of my new Marlin 1895GBL in 45-70 Gov't. with a 12 gauge slotted cleaning rod tip. (Yes that means, Remington/Marlin finally set me a new rifle as a replacement, couple of weeks ago, for the one I had bought originally but that had problems.) I never before imagined cleaning a rifle with shotgun cleaning accessories but that slotted tip along with shotgun cleaning patches worked like a charm.

I'm hoping to get it to the range tonight for its first shots. Well, that would be its first shots at least as fired by me. The bore was so dammed dirty that I am guessing they fired more than two or three test rounds through it at the factory. Oh well, the bore is bright and shiny now and I can actually easily see all the rifling which was not invisible but literally not that easy to see before I cleaned it. Man they must have used some dirty ammo regardless of how many test shots they fired.

That is all,
