Bill Nye the Science Guy Teaches Effective Debate Tactics vs. Creationists

Arctic Patriot at The Arctic Patriot - 3 hours ago
Here's a good debate tactic: Call your opponent a liar, and refuse to debate. Works like a charm. I see it used a lot online, as a matter of fact. I like this part the best: *This is another reason not to debate creationists: in the scientific community, theories do not rise or fall based on debate and rhetoric, but on the strength of evidence.* Well, with that established, I'll sit here and wait for the first conclusive piece of evidence that proves macroevolution, mutation of one species into another, or that living beings can come from not-living objects. Surely with millions... more »

Selco: What Light and Darkness Meant for Us

Ironwill III at Resistor in the Rockies - 3 hours ago
Selco not only discusses the importance of having light in a SHTF scenario, but also the importance of darkness on his blog. Read it. Have light appropriate for your situation. Load up on rechargeable batteries and solar battery chargers. Don't forget the tea lights and disposable lighters which can double as bartering objects. In most situations, do not use a light outside at night. more »

Benghazi Choices and Consequences

Arctic Patriot at The Arctic Patriot - 6 hours ago
Choices and consequences in Benghazi. A few quotes: * Now we have NATO-armed Salafi-jihadis in Libya, and House of Saud-financed and Turkey-based Salafi-jihadis in Syria - deploying "terra" antics such as suicide bombers to bring down the Assad regime - all wired up and ready to roll. ... *** *So what now? Who're you gonna bomb? Who're you gonna drone to death? What about bombing Benghazi a year after condemning Gaddafi to death because he might have threatened to ... bomb Benghazi? * We can continue to fight a "war on terra" indefinitely without consequences, both domestica... more »

Revamping the LBE into a Warbelt

Arctic Patriot at The Arctic Patriot - 16 hours ago
I'm in the process of turning my "Blackhawk" Battle-belt based heavy LBE setup into a slimmer "Warbelt" configuration. Right now I have one of those LBEs that has a large buttpack, two SAW pouches, places for canteens/Nalgene bottles, and plenty of mag pouches. If you served in the Army in the 90s before LBVs became popular, in the days of flak vests and LBEs, you likely know what I am talking about. Some guys wore the issue LBE setup, and some guys wore enough stuff on their LBEs to make a ruck almost redundant. It's ungainly as all get-out, although I bet I could live out of th... more »

Praxis: "Socks. Cushioned sole, O.D. green."

Dutchman6 at Sipsey Street Irregulars - 17 hours ago
* LT Dan Taylor: "There is one item of G.I. gear that can be the difference between a live grunt and a dead grunt. Socks. Cushioned sole, O.D. green. Try and keep your feet dry. When we're out humpin', I want you boys remember to change your socks whenever we stop. The Mekong will eat a grunt's feet right off his legs. . . Two standing orders in this platoon: One, take good care of your feet. Two, try not to do anything stupid, like getting yourself killed." PVT Forrest Gump: "I sure hope I don't let him down." * A deep genuflection and tip of the boonie hat to MG who sent me t... more »

The strange birth of NY’s gun laws

Dutchman6 at Sipsey Street Irregulars - 18 hours ago
*"Big Tim" Sullivan, crooked Tammany Hall politician, author of New York's Sullivan Act and insane tertiary syphilis victim.* Sullivan knew the gangs would flout the law, but appearances were more important than results. Young toughs took to sewing the pockets of their coats shut, so that cops couldn’t plant firearms on them, and many gangsters stashed their weapons inside their girlfriends’ “bird cages” — wire-mesh fashion contraptions around which women would wind their hair. Ordinary citizens, on the other hand, were disarmed, which solved another problem: Gangsters had been bi... more »

III Arms: AR Update

Kerodin at III Percent Patriots - 19 hours ago
**UPDATE** Citadel folks: Please take a moment and answer the 3 polls at right. The newest one will be a big help in laying the groundwork for the Citadel. ~~ AR: The man has skills - and he's not done yet. Are you an AR shooter? This is one of the builds being put together by Millerized for III Arms. Citadel folks: Begin to consider firearms and ammo inter-changeability and requirements for each household. Should every home agree to have at least one firearm in each of the major calibers? If the world does go to a SHTF period, who knows what may be available? Anyway, here's the... more »

Dual Purpose: EDC Bag - Survival Emergency Bag (SEK kit)

Video showing the EDC Bag setup I´m currenly using. It has enough to cover the basics, but still has almost 50% of the bag empty, space for more stuff being one of the most useful things to have on daily basis. Maybe that space is used for documents while running errands. Maybe for throwing the grear for shooting and going to the gun club or a bit more gear and going for a hike. In this video I do the show and tell thing and also talk about mindset when setting up such a kit. Enjoy! FerFAL more »

You Don't Need It Until You Need It

Arctic Patriot at The Arctic Patriot - 21 hours ago
When I first joined the Army, I was one of those guys who had to have everything. And a backup. I learned quickly through experience that while it's a neat feeling to never need something, and to be able to help your buddies out, it's usually not worth the price paid- that is, in extra weight. Being assigned mostly to Humvee scout platoons, I could always bring extra stuff, but I learned to keep it in a separate bag and to *keep it on the truck*. I went to a minimalist approach while on foot, preferring to go as light as possible as often as possible. I often would not pack anyth... more »

Friends and Tribes

Arctic Patriot at The Arctic Patriot - 1 day ago
I spent my last year in high school in an old-fashioned, KJV-Only, "Independent" and "Fundamentalist" unaccredited church school. I received corporal punishment in my senior year, at the age of sixteen. It didn't help the pastor remain calm when the two guys and I being swatted laughed, but that is a different story... In every school and church, there are positives and negatives. One very big positive about this school was the fact that is also served as a boarding house for kids who were all but given up on. A combination of a heavy hand of discipline, and a large amount of pe... more »

Mo's Film Maker Arrested - but wait, there's more...

Kerodin at III Percent Patriots - 1 day ago
Just something to think about: The film maker was on probation. Once you get hit with a charge, the normal rules of society simply do not apply to you any longer. This guy simply does not have 1A any longer. Lawfare. Look it up. It is the use of law to smear and otherwise take a potential "enemy" out of play by putting him in prison and ruining his credibility. You already grumble that you can't go a single day without committing a few felonies. So, you know it is real. Need more proof? Look at the list of "Prohibited Persons" who are having their 2A Rights infringed. It used ... more »

Sipsey Street Exclusive: File this under Praxis. Department of Homeland Security using drones that look like civil aviation.

Dutchman6 at Sipsey Street Irregulars - 2 days ago
*Cessna 172 (full size.)* As Smithsonian Magazine reported last year, "Some drones also look like conventional aircraft." A recent encounter by a friend of mine led me to check out reports that DHS, America's own home-grown political secret police, are using drones that look like Piper Cubs and other commonly-encountered civilian aircraft. My sources confirm that this is case. Said one, "Well hell yes they do. It took you this long to figure THAT out? They may use Predators on the border to spy on Mexicans and OTM (acronym meaning Other Than Mexican) terrorists trying to slip acr... more »

"It was learned in discovery materials that he was also an ATF Confidential Informant." The Clark Case -- which the ATF thought they'd bullied their way out of -- still has the chance of overturning their (and their snitches') applecart.

*Ramsey A. Bear: He'll be laughing all the way to Little Jimmy Vann's testimony at the Issa Committee's ATF oversight hearing* The magnificent Nolo Contendere provides us with the latest Clark case documents: Clark Machine Gun "Conversion" Case Info. Now, mind you, the ATF by using various forms of blackmail, has already compelled several defendants to make plea deals -- including threats to include their family members in the case unless they rolled. This is standard ATF Chief Counsels Office tactics. What Little Jimmy Vann didn't count on, though, was that there would
