America's Saddam

The 310 grain silver alloy bullets just plain don't fit in my 444 Marlin magazine. A little thinking about this reveals that the seating depth doesn't matter. All that matters is the size of the business end of the bullet and the angle of the taper up to the case. There is a silver lining, however (no pun intended). I bought some Hornady 300 grain hollow points that shoot very well from my rifle. Twenty cents apiece. Loaded up a bunch of them over the weekend, and fired ten shots from a sitting position, five at twenty-five yards and five at fifty. Got a four inch group with the five at fifty yards. I shoot a little better than that with my scoped Savage, but not much. The 300 grain hollow points also feed more smoothly than my 240 grain soft points, likely because they have a smaller tip (but still plenty big to avoid setting off a round in the magazine).

Jack Wheeler at NewsMax via Sierra Times - America's Saddam - a little reminder that Janet Reno, the butcher of Waco, has a degree in chemistry. She knew exactly what she was doing when she ordered that the Branch Davidians be treated with CS gas dissolved in methylene chloride. We'd better deal with our own Saddam before we talk about the one in Iraq. You've probably read my opinion on Waco Justice. [sierra]

The FBI cut off the electricity to the Davidians and knew all they had for light were kerosene lamps. Yet they sprayed into their buildings hundreds of pounds of methylene chloride which makes people stumble around like they're drunk with no coordination, with blurry vision, hallucinating and excitable: A guarantee that kerosene lamps would be knocked over and fires started.

In the presence of fire, MC vapor decomposes into hydrogen chloride, which has the same effect on any moisture-laden area of the body as sulfur mustard gas used in World War I: excruciating searing pain in the eyes, the mucous lining of the nose, and the lungs. Remember that the FBI used MC as a solvent to dissolve CS crystals. It turns out that when CS is burned, it produces hydrogen cyanide, the same gas used to execute prisoners on Death Row.

During the Iran-Iraq war, Saddam Hussein discovered the most lethal chemical warfare agent was a combination of sulfur mustard gas with hydrogen cyanide, which he used in artillery shells to slaughter thousands of Iranians. It was in effect this same combination that the FBI used to slaughter 87 men, women, and children in Waco.

The question is: who authorized the CS/MC combination? CS is not normally dissolved into a solution. Who knew about MC and could order it to be a solvent for CS? Sit down, folks, and hold on tight: Janet Reno has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry from Cornell University. Cornell has a very good chemistry department. MC is used as an organic solvent for many experiments. There is no question Reno would be very familiar with it, and was informed of its dangers by her professors. Janet Reno is America's Saddam Hussein.

Wayne Hicks at Sierra Times - Call To New America, Part 3: Liberty Regions Under Occupation - Mr. Hicks likes his little corner of Arkansas. He even publishes his phone number in case you want to talk more about emigrating. I'm tempted. Doubt I can convince my wife, however. [sierra]

Harry Browne at - America, Meet Your Leaders - how do you tell if a politician is lying? His lips are moving. And they're lying even worse than usual about the "reasons" to start a war with Iraq. [sierra]

You believe what you want. But as for me, until George Bush lays out specific, credible, verifiable, understandable evidence that Saddam Hussein poses an immediate threat to the security of the United States of America (not just to the "interests" of the U.S., as defined by power-hungry politicians), I prefer to keep my self-respect and oppose any thought of going to war.

L. Reichard White at The Libertarian Enterprise - Dis-Mything 9-11 Part 2: Is The USA Patriot Act Patriotic? - no, exactly the opposite. It decimates the rule of law. Its architects should swing for treason. [tle]

The question was, "Is the USA PATRIOT Act patriotic?"

Ron Paul doesn't think so. In fact, according to Paul, "Our forefathers would think it's time for a revolution. This is why they revolted in the first place. They revolted against much more mild oppression."
