I have never fired a rifle equipped with a bump stock. But, it is my understanding that bump stocks severely reduce the accuracy of such a rifle. So, that make a rifle equipped with a bump stock unsuitable for target shooting. In any case, automatic, and even semi-automatic rifles can not be legally used for hunting game in, at least, my state. (There used to be an exception allowing handicapped hunters to semi-automatic rifles, and that exception may still exist.)

So, what is a rifle equipped with a bump stock actually good for? Well, as has already been well proven, it's a great choice for an indiscriminate mass shooter.

"Republicans block bill to outlaw bump stocks for rifles after Supreme Court lifts Trump-era ban"

As per this article:

"WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Republicans blocked bipartisan legislation Tuesday that would have outlawed bump stocks after the Supreme Court struck down a ban on the rapid-fire gun accessory used in the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history.

Democrats tried to force a voice vote on the bill to ban bump stocks, a tactic often used by both parties when they know that they don't have the votes to pass legislation but want to bring an issue to the Senate floor. The bill, sponsored by Sens. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., and Susan Collins, R-Maine, would ban the sale of the devices, similar to the rule issued by President Donald Trump's administration after a gunman in Las Vegas attacked a country music festival in 2017 with semiautomatic rifles equipped with the accessories."

And, as per further along in this article:

"Nebraska Sen. Pete Ricketts objected for Republicans, blocking an immediate vote on the bill. He called the legislation a "gun grabbing overreach" that could be interpreted to include other gun accessories beyond bump stocks."

As surviving a mass shooting, as well as initiating one, is becoming something a 'rite of passage' in the US of A, the Republicult™ is certainly doing its part to make sure it actually becomes another 'Merican tradition.
Here's an item that all truly hardcore MAGAts are sure to want to proudly own and wear:

After having been force fed Finnegans Wake years ago, I couldn't take James Joyce seriously. But, after watching your tribute, and knowing that RAW counted Ulysses among the 'Great Books,' I'm going to have to give James Joyce another try.

June 17, 1972 - The Watergate Break-in

In a case of Republicans just being Republicans, minions of the Nixon administration burglarized the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee. And, of course, 'Tricky Dick' Nixon, the sitting Republican POTUS at the time, did his best to cover it up.

But, fear not! The Republican Party has learned a thing or two from its past mistakes. Since then, they have closed ranks, and pack the courts with even more of their 'party over country' believing minions. And so, the possibility of a future Republican president ever being forced from office for committing mere felonies has been put to rest.
Today, the 19th of Confusion, is Flag Day in the US of A. And, as flags have been a controversial topic in 'Merican news of late, a reminder of the warning words of wisdom recorded in our Wholly Holy Principia Discordia about THE FIVE ORDERS OF DISCORDIA ("THEM"), and their flags is appropriate. And so, it is written:

"A person belonging to one or more Order is just as likely to carry a flag of the counter-establishment as the flag of the establishment - - just as long it is a flag."

And so, you have been rewarned. You're welcome.   

Hail Eris! All Hail Discordia!

This internet list caught my attention this afternoon:

"All The GOP Lawmakers Telling Trump To Drop Out After His Felony Conviction"

"These are the Republican leaders standing up and putting country before party."

As per the article:

"(This list will be updated as the GOP statements come pouring in.)"

Please note, at the time of this initial posting, it's a short list.

Principia Discussion / Have a Sweet Syaday!

It is the first Sweetmorn in the season of Confusion, in the Year of Our Lady of Discord 3190. And, once again it's time to celebrate the Patron Saint of the season, Apostle Sri Syadasti. (Actually, his full name is much, much longer, but I'm too lazy to write it all out.)

Anyway, as it is written in our Wholly Holy Principia Discordia:

"His name is Sanskrit, and means: All affirmations are true in some sense, false in some sense, meaningless in some sense, true and false in some sense, true and meaningless in some sense, false and meaningless in some sense, and true and false and meaningless in some sense."

So, it really does make perfect sense that Sri Syadasti is the Patron Saint of the season of Confusion.

Hail Eris! All Hail Discordia!
May 30, 2024 - First Time a U.S. President Was Convicted of Committing Felonies

TSF, a former U.S. president, was convicted of committing thirty-four (34) felonies in New York, New York. These felonies were committed to cover up hush money payments to both a porn star and a Playboy model prior to the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
May 29, 1953 - First Confirmed Successful Ascent and Decent of Mount Everest

Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay became the first confirmed humans to stand on the highest point of planet Earth, and return to tell about it.

The peak of Mount Everest has since become a high priced tourist attraction, high altitude graveyard, and a garbage dump. But, that first successful ascent was looked upon as an act of exploration.
Quote from: ein Gefrorener Würfel on May 27, 2024, 11:09:09 PMSo true. Truer words have never been issueded. The truthiness is supreme. But just a question, springing from the depth of my confused, mostly caused by the few shots of Jaegermeister, you should drink it at room temperature to get experince all the flavours, mind - this is not an endorsement to drink alkohol, which is proven to cause cancer, and I'm quite sure my fathers cancer was caused by it, but rather just an excuse for my confusement, what is the reason, and I'm not intending to critique anyone here, that you, again no criticisim, are using, this is an interesting word, it is both an everyday word to indicate an action, but also a way to describe the superiority or exploitative Actions of someone. Just saying.

Well ... now I'm confused too, as I don't understand your question. And, this is only the beginning of the second day of the aptly named Season of Confusion. Even worse, I'm still completely sober on this, our Memorial Day Holiday.

Hail Eris! All Hail Discordia!
'Tis the beginning of the season of Confusion in the Year of Our Lady of Discord 3190.

'Tis once again the season when we of our faithlessness are to be reminded, "Forasmuch as it was Active, the Force of Discord entered the State of Confusion, wherein It copulated with the Queen and begat ERIS, Our Lady of Discord and Gross Manifestation of the Nonexistent Chao." And, thus this doctrinal Discordian dogma, from The Book of Uterus of The Honest Book of Truth, is duly documented for eternal remembrance in our Wholly Holy Principia Discordia.

Hail Eris! All Hail Discordia!
Those tech savvy entrepreneurs have developed yet another technological wonder, this time for the personal healthcare products marketplace. This new high-tech device will allow you to look at your teeth, up close and personal, while you're brushing them.

"Video-enabled toothbrush offers a fresh look at your teeth"

As per the article:

"ONVI claims the Prophix is the first-ever video toothbrush. It is aimed at allowing users to see the condition of their teeth and to better understand their oral health. In order to do this, it pairs with an accompanying iOS app via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. There's an Android version of the app in development.

The Prophix features an in-built camera capable of capturing 1080p video that allows users to watch a live feed of their brushing via the app and see if they are missing any spots. It's also able to capture 10-megapixel photos that can be saved via the app so as to track the condition of areas of interest in the mouth over time."

Here's the link:   The Video-enabled Toothbrush

Also, as per the article:

"The Prophix is available for pre-order at a discounted price of US$299, with the eventual retail price to be set at $399. It is scheduled to ship in the first quarter of next year."

So, if the ol' bathroom mirror just isn't good enough for your tooth brushing needs, this may be the product for you.
