the blunderbess (blunderbuss) as eye candy and some history

H/T Military

I think this may turn out to be one of those busy blog days due to unexpected finds. Funny how that works.
I came across what I thought was an interesting article in one of our morning papers.  Had to do with the Kalashnikov of much fame. A new version of which I’ll post soon. 

Somehow and I don’t even know how, I found myself HERE, at military factory dot com. And proceeded to lose myself among all their interesting articles on weapons and history of same and of course, photos. Lots of those.  I LOVE this site, and have already learned quite a bit.

So, before I knew it, I (temporarily) abandoned the Kalashnikov story to post this. And there’s tons more at Military Factory.
Unfortunately, the web site made it impossible for me to do a normal copy/paste routine. So I did a screen shot and can only hope it plays well on your computer.
If I’ve managed to foul things up, just go the link above. It really is a good site for info and education about weapons and war and things military etc.

Due to the screen shot for the text, I am unable to move things around easily but it’s still readable. I hope.

I have just read that the state of Arizona is asking for $34 million in donations, to build a fence along their entire border. Every foot, every inch.
I would guess that if only 34 million ppl gave just one dollar, that goal could be achieved.  If they can go through with it but are not able to raise that money, it will say much about the citizens take on border control. Or lack of.

And speaking of borders and immigrants and such.
I found this to be a very interesting article. However ......

A population of 77 million in Britain? It feels like we’re already full!


The other day I gave a lecture on the subject of planning.  At the end of it, a man in the audience asked whether I thought there would be a world government by 2050, because, as far as he could see, it was the only answer to population control.
I thought this was a bit much, but the more I ponder the number of people that this planet – and more locally, this country – is being expected to host, the more alarming the prospect becomes. And we had better start considering it now, or some of the things that we most value about the way we live will have disappeared through sheer pressure of numbers.
Let me make one thing clear.  It used to be thought that any discussion of population was about race. New Labour used this presumption, mendaciously, to close down any discussion of their policy on immigration, which was to allow it to drift upwards. 

read it all here

As interesting as the article will be if you read it .... I think this cartoon says a lot more.  Don’t you?

‘It was tragic. Your granny had just become the 77millionth person in the UK, then it sank.’

more young black men are in prison than attending the country’s leading universities.

Here’s a headline that caught my attention.
Gee. What a surprise.  Who could have thought such was possible after so many, many years of white guilt driven monies being poured into inner cities and programs to get em out of the gutter.

Hundreds more young black men are in prison than at leading universities

Hundreds more young black men are in prison than attending the country’s leading universities, the Deputy Prime Minister will warn today, as he issues a fresh call to end racial discrimination.
By Robert Winnett, Political Editor

it’s all whitey’s fault

Well now. I wonder why that is?
Right … it’s all down to “discrimination” and not enough programs and not enough money. Got it.

Nick Clegg will say that the “next frontier for race equality” is opening up economic opportunities to ethnic minorities.

The Liberal Democrat leader will indicate that positive discrimination is operating in the public sector, saying that men from ethnic minorities now earn more than their white counterparts. But he will point out that ethnic minority workers typically earn significantly less than whites in the private sector.

Sure. Ppl from favored minorities can earn more in the public sector as long as those in charge continue to pay and pay and sometimes pay some folks well above their capabilities.  Not saying discrimination doesn’t exist at all.  But lets face the truth which is;
Much in the private sector is image and to a degree pc. You must be seen to be anti racist and anti discrimination and so will think more then 2wice before firing a minority member.  And if you do, chances are pretty good you’ll have to defend that action in court. Because it is never but never the fault of a person getting the sack. No. It’s always the ‘D’ word.

Mr Clegg will also cite professional football, where a quarter of players are black but there is not a single black manager in the Premier League.

Good point Mr. Clegg. Why is that? And oh btw.  How many blacks are there in high or leadership positions within your own party?  Come, come. Don’t be shy.  Surely it can not be due to lack of interest or dare I say it?  There may not any with the qualifications to fill the posts.  Maybe discrimination? 

Meanwhile, in the real world and on the streets and in the courts, and no matter which civilized country they call home, they always make up the majority of prisoners doing time.  I wonder why that is? 

Out in just TWO years: ‘Soft’ sentence for serial teen offender caught on camera fleeing after brazen stabbing of a young man in broad daylight

Junior Henry, 17, was part of gang that stabbed man to death in 2009 but was not locked up because of his age



A teenage thug photographed stabbing a man during the Notting Hill Carnival has been jailed for four and a half years… and could be out in just two years.
Junior Henry, 17, was caught on camera as he tried to flee the scene after plunging a knife into the abdomen of Rio Andre as the carnival drew to its conclusion on August 29.

Valentine Simatchenko, a Russian bystander who witnessed the attack, was dubbed a ‘hero’ after attempting to trip up Henry as he ran from the scene while police officers stood motionless.

Today campaigners have expressed their outrage at the relatively light sentence.

Jean Taylor, of Families for Justice, said she was shocked the thug was not locked up earlier.

She told the Daily Mirror: ‘This yob we be out in two years if he behaves himself. The police must be so frustrated when all their hard work ends in sentences like this.’

Following the sentencing it was revealed that Henry was acquitted of the murder of a pharmaceutical student in a trial at the Old Bailey during 2009.

He was found guilty of conspiracy to cause GBH and violent disorder but was spared prison by The Recorder of London, Judge Peter Beaumont QC.

Instead he was given a supervision order but it was reported that he had broken that many times, including after being given a ‘final warning’ by Judge Beaumont.

blk boy and his knife. togetherness.

UK Does Something Right

UK Students Burn Obama In Effigy

Where is that? I’ve never heard of the place.

Sorry for the pandering bias, but the article is from MSNBC ...

‘Burning an effigy of anyone is offensive, let alone the first black President of the United States. The overtones are deeply unpleasant,’ lawmaker says

Racist much there?

An effigy of Barack Obama was burned by members of a Conservative party college student association in Scotland, after its committee chose the U.S. president over the late Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, a student official told

The incident took place on a beach in St. Andrews on Friday as part of a tradition by the University of St. Andrews Conservative Association that has seen effigies of former U.K. Prime Minister Gordon Brown burned and former South African President Nelson Mandela hung among others.

Some kind of Burning Man thing I guess. Don’t they do this every year, and toasted Clinton the same way some years ago maybe?

A source told that a number of the committee members were Americans who support the Republican party.

Oh sure. Because they can find a real live breathing Conservative in bloody Scotland. Where even the “right wingers” are Socialists. Sure, uh huh. But if we can’t Blame Bush, we’ll take the next closest thing. OK, now watch the slobbering media get it’s soiled panties in a righteous twist cuz Mr. Toasty was Fearless Reader.

St. Andrews University, which was founded in 1413 and says it is the third oldest university in the English-speaking world, said it planned to speak to the Conservative group about the “very understandable concerns” over the incident.

In a telephone interview, Patrick O’Hare, a student official, said the Students’ Representative Council had voted by 13 to 2 Tuesday night in favor of a motion that burning effigies of public figures was not constructive.

O’Hare described the burning as “immature” and “potentially very offensive,” particularly as the effigy was of “America’s first black president.”

Five candidates to burn
He said he had been told by a person in a position to know that a vote had been taken by the Conservative group’s committee “as to who they would burn.”

He told the identity of the source but provided the information on the basis that the person was not identified.

“There were five candidates including Gadhafi,” O’Hare said. “It was decided upon — perversely democratically — that Obama was the one who was going to burn.”

O’Hare is president of the Students’ Association, of which the Conservative group is a member along with left-wing and other political societies.

St. Andrews University issued a brief comment in an email. “We are aware of reports of this incident and have asked to meet the society president to discuss the very understandable concerns which these reports have raised. Until that meeting has taken place, it would be inappropriate to make further comment,” the statement said.

And on and on. They’re practically wetting themselves with remorse.

[Drew flips through dictionary ... whaddya mean “Effigy” is a thing, not a place. Aw nutz!  Hey, wait a second, it says here an effigy is a straw man, a stand-in for the real thing. Um, so does that mean the POTUS is dead?]

The BEEB also covered this story, calling it an ACT OF HATE.

Nobody ran the pictures. You KNOW the pictures exist. When TOTUS gets lit up in Effigy, Afghanistan, we get the picture. When Shiites go at it, we get the picture. When radical militant Hindus light him, we get the picture. NOBODY is running the picture. This is as close as it gets:
Tory Society also repeatedly torched Nelson Mandela

Nothing to see here, move along. No pics mean it didn’t happen, and will soon be forgotten. So here’s a pic of Prince William and Kate, both St. Andrews alumni. Aren’t they a cute couple? Stare at the cut couple. Think only about the cute couple.

Obama? Whozzat?

Effigy? Never been there.

Why is it always white Europeans, and only them ….

I’ve been busier then a duck in a flood since yesterday but especially today.
I seem to have come face to face with that old expression, the faster I run the more behind I get.  I guess that happens when we put off things need doing sooner rather then all at once later. 
So …. checking out my Europe News site I came across this, which they grabbed from Gates of Vienna.  It isn’t too long but the parts that really caught my attention were the following.  See link for all of it and some interesting comments.

Islamophile Illusions
by Fjordman

The Nordic countries’ greatest advantage, historically speaking, has been an ethnically homogeneous population. Our greatest competitive advantage is now being destroyed by state-sponsored politics. As an analogy, let’s say you had a big pile of gold and professor Thomas Hylland Eriksen told you to flush half of the gold down the toilet because this was supposed to be economically beneficial.

Hylland Eriksen said in an interview in 2008 that “The most important ‘blank spot’ now consists of deconstructing the majority so thoroughly that it can never be called the majority again”. If he had said that Somalis or Pakistanis should be deconstructed, this would have triggered strong reactions. Why is it always white Europeans, and only them, who are to be deconstructed and have their countries and cultural history taken away from them?

Up, up, and awaaaay! Um, nope.

“Brace For Impact”


Flight 1022 making toasted buzzard pudding just after takeoff

Continental 737 out of Panama for Newark eats bird, blows engine, turns back and lands safely. Nothing to see here, move along.

We were comparing airline stories at bowling league last night (we lost 2-5 against the 1st place team, widening their lead to 16). Our teammate Bob took his wife down to Panama last week for their anniversary and was on this flight. He said it was pretty frightening but the passengers were quite calm, at least until just before landing when the pilot came on the PA to tell everyone to brace for impact. Then they landed reasonably smoothly. Good job Continental!

A Continental Airlines Boeing 737-900, registration N53442 performing flight CO-1022 from Panama City (Panama) to Newark,NJ (USA) with 176 people on board, was in the initial climb out of Panama when the left hand engine (CFM56) ingested a bird and repeatedly surged. The crew shut the engine down and returned to Panama City’s Tocumen Airport for a safe landing on runway 03R.

Panama’s Civil Aviation Authority [at first erroneously] reported the aircraft [as a different one that] was headed for Houston,TX (USA), however, this flight reached Houston on schedule.

Continental Airlines confirmed their flight 1022 returned to Panama due to necessary maintenance.

Nothing like your airliner shaking like a paint mixer while watching a 10 foot fireball coming out of one engine to liven up a long boring flight!

The Boeing 737-900 had just left Panama City when the bird was sucked into the engine, causing the pilot to radio the control tower for help. The aircraft carrying 176 passengers returned safely to Tocumen International Airport.  VIDEO

The pilot was able to shut down the engine and get the plane back to the airport. A passenger on the plane wrote on a messageboard today, “Finally landed in Newark at 12:30 am this morning via Miami. It was a very scary experience. We took a Buzzard into the left engine when climbing after takeoff. This made an awful noise. Sort of like a truck backfire but bigger and did not stop. There was an air Wisconsin pilot in uniform, who was a passenger on the plane. He was the one who walked up the isle and looked out the bulkhead window to see the engine on fire. Pilots and CO flight staff were calm and helpful. The flight attendant in coach was terrific and prepped us for emergency landing. Noise and vibration had us all scared. We did not land for about 20 long minutes. We were out over the water when the noise started. Landing was fine but we burnt the brakes and wheels. We sat on the runway for almost one hour before departing to a bus. It was calm on the plane but once in the terminal, people were crying and hugging.”

If you are flying for the holiday, may the only bird you ingest be the one on the table tomorrow.

It’s a start

One Down, One On Deck, One Still In Office

Tony Resko sentenced to 10.5 years jail time

Blago to be sentenced December 6th

A former fundraiser to President Barack Obama was sentenced to 10.5 years in federal prison today. Tony Rezko, 56, will end up spending only seven years behind bars because the judge gave him credit for time he’s already served.

In 2008, Rezko was convicted of pay to play politics including fraud, bribery and extorting millions from businesses seeking contracts with the state of Illinois while Rod Blagojevich was Governor.

Rezko’s sentencing of 10.5 years could set a precedent for the upcoming sentencing of convicted Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. Blagojevich was found guilty on multiple corruption charges during his re-trial earlier this year. His sentencing is scheduled for Tuesday December 6th in Chicago.

Somali Pirates 1 For 4


Make That 0 For 4

“Likely picked up” means nobody really knows. Or cares. In other words, they’re probably sharki-snax by now. Too bad.


According to the ICC, right now only 11 ships and 197 prisoners are being held captive in Somalia. Other reports put those numbers at 47 ships and 500 sailors. Either way, isn’t it time our great War Leader Obama did something about this?

Corzine Theft Beginning to Approach Madoff Levels

MF Global Shortfall: $1.2 BILLION

The amount of customer money missing from the collapsed trading firm MF Global may be more than $1.2 billion — double previous estimates — the trustee dismantling the firm’s brokerage unit said on Monday.

But the surprise finding, which caught regulators off guard, may be [slightly] overstated, according to a person briefed on the investigation. Some regulators say they believe that the trustee double-counted $220 million that had been transferred between units of MF Global, this person said.

Still, the much higher number highlights the disarray of MF Global’s records and raises significantly the hurdle for tens of thousands of customers seeking to get their money back. The trustee’s estimate represents a significant portion of customer funds held by MF Global.

Regulators suspect that as investors and customers fled MF Global in the last week of October, the firm used some of the customer money for its own needs — violating Wall Street rules that customers’ money be kept separate from the firm’s funds. Much of that money may never return.

It is unclear what was behind MF Global’s original lower estimates. Some authorities chalk up the inaccuracies to the firm’s sloppy bookkeeping, and only slowly discovered additional holes in customer funds over the last three weeks.

Cow pats. The accounting is done by computer, accurate to the penny, and updated to the minute. This was nothing more than a lie put out to cover their butts.


Obama and his best pal. Some campaign posters write themselves

Never ever forget that Jon ”seat belts” Corzine was the Obama regime’s “go to” guy for economic advise. Joe Biden said so. Obviously, to Corzine, rules are for other people.

Why isn’t this fargin bastage in jail already???

Once Upon A Time Or Four


Once upon a time I could find an oddball picture like this online and send it off to McGoo, and in a few days he’d post it with a really imaginative and snarky story attached, possibly implicating Nancy Pelosi and disproving quantum as it relates to Obamacare and origami. Alas, Sir Steamy merely lurks now and then, and his once wondrous blog, a refuge of the endangered jabberwocky in the barren wastes of reasonless mimsy that is the intertubes - plus Science!! - has been taken over by another, who merely rants against everything by finding slightly inventive ways to regurgitate a single base expression. Sigh. No more steampunk stuff either. Or teeth.

But as you can see in the picture above, ‘tis nearly brillig, so that means it’s time to get cooking.  And fie on you if you conclude, for the obvious reasons, that this is a picture of the new Iranian Tomcat missile. The real truth is just as strange.

The same guy who built the thing above, which I think was to remind you either that a) time flies, or b) it’s time to get up, also built this bullet proof iron baby carriage, a Tim Burton bit of welded Goth-ness suitable for perambulating around your bullet proof iron baby.

I can report, I can write, I can find all kinds of pictures, and a few times a year I have a good rant in me or a decent pun, but when it comes my turn to actually be pan narrans, which is our purpose here on earth, right?, I’m just a chimp.

Another Inconvenient Truth

I Once Was Lost But Now I’m Found


Alarmist scientists jumped the gun in 2009 when they couldn’t find a whole herd of caribou. “Global Warming killing the caribou herds!” they screamed. If they’d only bothered to ask the locals ...

Back then:

Mighty caribou herds dwindle, warming blamed

ON THE PORCUPINE RIVER TUNDRA, Yukon Territory — Here on the endlessly rolling and tussocky terrain of northwest Canada, where man has hunted caribou since the Stone Age, the vast antlered herds are fast growing thin. And it’s not just here. Across the tundra 1,500 kilometers (1,000 miles) to the east, Canada’s Beverly herd, numbering more than 200,000 a decade ago, can barely be found today.

Halfway around the world in Siberia, the biggest aggregation of these migratory animals, of the dun-colored herds whose sweep across the Arctic’s white canvas is one of nature’s matchless wonders, has shrunk by hundreds of thousands in a few short years. From wildlife spectacle to wildlife mystery, the decline of the caribou — called reindeer in the Eurasian Arctic — has biologists searching for clues, and finding them.

They believe the insidious impact of climate change, its tipping of natural balances and disruption of feeding habits, is decimating a species that has long numbered in the millions and supported human life in Earth’s most inhuman climate. Many herds have lost more than half their number from the maximums of recent decades, a global survey finds. They “hover on the precipice of a major decline,” it says.

But today:

Canadian elders right all along, ‘lost’ caribou herd had just moved

A vast herd of northern caribou that scientists feared had vanished from the face of the Earth has been found, safe and sound — pretty much where aboriginal elders said it would be all along.

“The Beverly herd has not disappeared,” said John Nagy, lead author of a recently published study that has biologists across the North relieved.

Those scientists were shaken by a 2009 survey on the traditional calving grounds of the Beverly herd, which ranges over a huge swath of tundra from northern Saskatchewan to the Arctic coast. A herd that once numbered 276,000 animals seemed to have completely disappeared, the most dramatic and chilling example of a general decline in barren-ground caribou.

But Nagy’s research — and consultation with the communities that live with the animals — concludes differently. His work springs from recent studies that question the long-held theory that caribou always return to the same calving ground. It holds that different herds use different grounds, and that’s what sets them apart.

“In the past, herds have been defined based on their calving grounds,” said Nagy. “However, it’s been shown that not all herds maintain fidelity to their calving grounds.”

Herds are now defined by which animals hang out together, not by where they give birth.

“It’s actually behaviour that structures these herds, not calving grounds.”

It turns out that the Beverly herd has simply shifted its calving grounds north from the central barrens near Baker Lake, Nunavut, to the coastal regions around Queen Maud Gulf. Nagy’s analysis of radio-tracking data showed caribou in the region once thought to belong to the Ahiak herd are, in fact, Beverly animals.

Said Campbell: “When the initial alarm bells were ringing about the Beverly herd disappearing, right away we went in to talk to the communities and they said: ‘No, no, no. These caribou have moved north and we’ve been told by our elders that they do that.’”

Thompson heard the same. “Many of the community people reported that elders think this is nothing new. Caribou move.”

Next time, said Campbell, scientists should pay them a little more mind.

What would the stupid locals know? They aren’t PHDs. They’re just stupid Indians. Icebound flyover rednecks. And I’m sure the sciencey dorks figured that with the herds gone, the polar bears (caribou’s natural predator) were drowning themselves in fits of depression.

Stupid alarmist scientists, going off half-cocked.  I think a 9 iron to the nutz is called for, so that in the future they’ll go off completely de-cocked if they can go off at all.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.
