Publisher’s Note: The family marksmanship clinic for pistol went without a hitch and much improvement was gained by all hands. It was the first time my oldest son had employed a red dot, he has an astigmatism and the use of the Trijicon dual illumination amber 7.0 dot was much better than the standard red dot. He and I traded and I managed to replace the dual illum with a RMR Type 3.25. Accuracy out to ten yards. We made several interesting discoveries to include training the digits below the trigger finger to act independently to prevent sympathetic squeezing of the lower digits to make a right handed shooters shoot low and left. Proximity to distal crease also improve quarter minus size grouping. In concert with thenar training on the on support hand grip, great strides were made.
I am still trying to grok all the hand mechanics one can leverage to improve pistol use. Per rifle, I have installed “gas pedals” at 270degrees on my AR platforms to improve grip and reduce fatigue [support hand emulates thumb over thumb of pistol grip.
And, of course, both eyes open at all times.
We sucked less indeed.

Dan Carlin released his Part III of his superlative treatment of the Japanese leading up and in the War to Save Josef Stalin, Supernova in the East. I recommend listening to the entire series.
While I respect Carlin’s historical and narrative instincts, his political yammering is almost always consistently ill-informed and myopic. Asks the right questions and consistently veers into the catastrophically wrong answers.
At the beginning of Part III, he is describing the “right wing” indoctrination in the colleges in the Axis powers and says things like (I paraphrase), “left wing anti-government types”. No such thing, all political advocates both right and left are government supremacists.
We are on the eve of Pearl Harbor Day and I must remind my readers of the “infamy” committed by RedDR and his thoroughly Soviet penetrated Offal Office before American entry and during participation. Jane Shaw piqued my interest in the “impossible coincidences” of that attack and how it was politically advantageous for RedDR and his apparatchiks to drag America into the world.
And saved Josef Stalin from a two front war.
Jane Shaw avers:
“A few facts among many: FDR’s chief of staff, the famed George Marshall, testified before the congressional committee, but he was vague about where he had been on Saturday night, December 6, and Sunday morning, December 7, before the attack occurred. A war hero by the time of his testimony, he was not pressed. Harold Stark, Chief of Naval Operations, also testified that he couldn’t remember where he was on Saturday night. But then a friend who had gone with him to the National Theater that night jogged his memory, and he was forced to admit that he had received a call from the White House after he returned. Quite likely, the call was to bring him to a late-night meeting.”
Miss Shaw’s missive here is informative. I suggest reading her 2010 Liberty article.
Every young American sailor and airman rotting in the waters of Pearl Harbor was personally liquidated by RedDR and his Soviet hand-maidens.
I should also remind readers that when those planes were devastating the antiquated Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor, the Germans were meeting their match in what would close any possibility of Axis victory in Europe. The European Winter of 1941-1942 was the coldest of the twentieth century.

“But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain – that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case it is unfit to exist.”
“And yet we have what purports, or professes, or is claimed, to be a contract—the Constitution—made eighty years ago, by men who are now all dead, and who never had any power to bind us, but which (it is claimed) has nevertheless bound three generations of men, consisting of many millions, and which (it is claimed) will be binding upon all the millions that are to come; but which nobody ever signed, sealed, delivered, witnessed, or acknowledged; and which few persons, compared with the whole number that are claimed to be bound by it, have ever read, or even seen, or ever will read, or see.”
“If taxation without consent is not robbery, then any band of robbers have only to declare themselves a government, and all their robberies are legalized.”
“The fact is that the government, like a highwayman, says to a man: Your money, or your life…The government does not, indeed, waylay a man in a lonely place, spring upon him from the road side and, holding a pistol to his head, proceed to rifle his pockets. But the robbery is none the less a robbery on that account; and it is far more dastardly and shameful. The highwayman takes solely upon himself the responsibility, danger, and crime of his own act. He does not pretend that he has any rightful claim to your money, or that he intends to use it for your own benefit. He does not pretend to be anything but a robber…Furthermore, having taken your money, he leaves you as you wish him to do. He does not persist in following you on the road, against your will; assuming to be your rightful ‘sovereign,’ on account of the ‘protection’ he affords you.”
“That no government, so called, can reasonably be trusted, or reasonably be supposed to have honest purposes in view, any longer than it depends wholly upon voluntary support.”
“The only idea they have ever manifested as to what is a government of consent, is this–that it is one to which everybody must consent, or be shot.”
– Lysander Spooner
This may be one of the shortest posts I have ever published but I was reflecting with my lads over the weekend and concluded that all political organizations throughout the history of mankind are nothing more than declarations of tolerance for enslavement of our neighbors and ourselves.
Simple as that.
Prove me wrong.
