Kidnapping and Sexual Assault of an Eleven Year Old

"'Ok. You don't know why you wanted to kidnap this little girl. Let me ask you, why did you want to have sex with her?' The answer: 'I guess I'm just perverted,'" said Dimick's lawyer Kenneth Botary."

This piece of filth and his two friends kidnapped a girl, who was out riding her bike, took her out to the island and he raped her and left her on the island.  They had the foresight to bring a lubricant and a blindfold with them when the perpetrated this attack on that young girl. That to me sounds as if the had Pre-Meditation.  Does that enhance the penalties for these 3 scumbags?

I hope so.

I know quite a few people, who are willing to help the State avoid the cost of a trial.  I'll leave that to your own imagination what I've been hearing.

But either way, none of these three should EVER see natural daylight again, as long as they still draw a breath.

Obama's war on the suburbs

"The new HUD rule is really about changing the way Americans live. It is part of a broader suite of initiatives designed to block suburban development, press Americans into hyper-dense cities, and force us out of our cars"

That is all HUD's new direction actually is.  It is a war against the people who took their children, their tax dollars and their spending money out of the corrupt mismanaged cities. So by forcing the suburban communities to accept the former inner city dwellers, with their high crime and recidivism rate, lowers the property values through increased crime and vandalism.

Don't believe me? I used to work for the St. Louis City and county Housing Authorities doing security.  I was armed, and we never ran less than 2 men per shift.  The crime rate in most of the projects was over 70%.  One of the very worst projects was less than 1 mile from one of the most prosperous sections of St. Louis County.  Rapes, Murders, Drugs you name it.

And Obama wants to move that into yours and everyone elses neighborhood.

Still think he isn't trying to destroy this country?

Needs reading

Guns are for white people. Racism is for journalists. 

Yup things need to change. 

Rifle Grenades

The US Military needs to bring back Rifle Grenades.  Sure they have the M203, and the MK19 but there are times when you NEED a grenade.  And not one you throw by hand, because the target is too far away, but the guy with the grenade launcher is 20-30 yards away under fire so he can't move and he doesn't have the angle on the target you need hit.

So if each soldier had a bullet trap rifle grenade or two on their gear, if they needed to hit a target, the could slide the grenade on the muzzle of their rifle, and take aim, (There are variants they can be shoulder aimed) and put that grenade where it's needed.

I'm not advocating doing away with the M203, the 40mm HEDP rounds have a larger blast radius than most current rifle grenades making them more effective.  However, there ARE times when you just need to get a grenade in somewhere.

Instead of a new piece of hardware like the XM-25, which is being withdrawn from service according to reports for certain issues. You get a rifle grenade that you can put in through a window if necessary.  Your soldier also still has his rifle.

So how hard would it be to incorporate a small laser sight on a rifle?  Most of them already HAVE that.  They have Laser Sight/Designator, If that could be coupled with an optic with a small interface, you could program a rifle grenade to burst on distance flow, OR on impact.  That way every soldier could technically be a Grenadier.  And it would probably be a LOT cheaper to field and train troops on.

Naaaawwwww, the Military would never go for it.  It makes too much sense.

This is disturbing - Warrantless Drone Surveillance

"Drone surveillance in the United States does not require a warrant, but the practice remains limited, the FBI told Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., in a letter after he placed a hold on James Comey’s nomination to be the new FBI director." 

I'm sorry, but most drones have FLIR, which means they can actually see through the walls and roofs of your house and see your heat signature. They can see if you are making love to your significant other, or someone other than your significant other.  They can follow your car from the air and video where you are going, they can depending on the drone focus microphones on you and record your conversations, not in good quality, but they can record you.  I personally find this a gross violation of my privacy rights.

Unless they have a warrant, they have no legal authority to surveil me.  Or anyone else.

On this blog you might see where things are posted either by Mark, GreyLocke, Grey Locke, Greylocke01 or Melissa Anderson.

The first 4 are all one person, Me, just different accounts that I use to keep my YouTube video's segregated between monetized video's and non-monetized video's.  The last one is my daughter Melissa aka #2 Sprog.

I will and do answer to Grey, GreyLocke, Mark, Animal or Beast.

But my real Christian name is Mark.  I won't tell you what my Christening name is though.

This is to clear up some confusion that has occurred during E-mail exchanges.

I use the greylocke  gmail e-mail address for most of my correspondence, and usually only check the other ones once a week.

Something strange is going on with Blogger

I'm having some issues with publishing my posts.  It took 12 minutes of me constantly hitting the publish button and getting told there was an error when trying to publish the previous post with the video from Pat Condell.  When it DID finally publish it said that it had already been viewed 15 times.

How is that possible?

Coupled with the problems I'm having with Firefox not allowing me to copy and paste unless I copy it, then paste it to a blank text document then copy it again and paste it into whatever page I'm on in Firefox.

Very strange stuff.

Anyone else having these problems?

Remarks on CBS and ...Food for thought-from the inbox

Apparently the White House referred to Christmas Trees as Holiday Trees for the first time this year which prompted CBS presenter, Ben Stein, to present this piece which I would like to share with you. I think it applies just as much to many countries as it does to America.
 A little sanity please... 
     Only  hope we find GOD again before it is too late ! !

The  following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS  Sunday  Morning  Commentary.

My confession: 

I don't like getting pushed around for being a  Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for  being Christians.  I think people who believe in God are  sick and tired of getting pushed around, period.  I have no  idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly  atheist country.  I can't find it in the Constitution and I  don't like it being shoved down my throat...

Or maybe I  can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we  should worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God  as we understand Him?  I guess that's a sign that I'm  getting old, too.  But there are a lot of us who are  wondering where these celebrities came from and where the  America we knew went to.

In light of the many jokes we  send to one another for a laugh, this is a little  different:  This is not intended to be a joke; it's not  funny, it's intended to get you thinking. 

In  light of recent events... terrorists attack, school shootings,  etc..  I think it started when Madeleine MurrayO'Hare (she  was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she  didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.  Then  someone said you better not read the Bible in school...   The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and  love your neighbor as yourself.  And we said  OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our  children when they misbehave, because their little personalities  would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr.  Spock's son committed suicide).  We said an expert should  know what he's talking about..  And we said  okay..

Now we're asking ourselves why our children have  no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it  doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and  themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard  enough, we can figure it out.  I think it has a great deal  to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.'

Funny how simple it is  for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to  hell.  Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but  question what the Bible says.  Funny how you can send  'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when  you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think  twice about sharing.  Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and  obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public  discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace. 

Are you laughing yet?

Funny how when you forward  this message, you will not send it to many on your address list  because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will  think of you for sending it.

Funny how we can be more  worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks  of us.

My Best Regards,  Honestly and  respectfully,

Ben  Stein

Why Bush was so bad at the end of his term-from the inbox

Some people aren't aware of all of this.   Don't just skim over this, please read it slowly and let it sink in.   If in doubt, check it out.
The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3, 2007, the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress.
The Democrat Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.
For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault", think about this,  January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress.    At that time:
The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%
The Unemployment rate was 4.6%
George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH.
Remember the day... January 3rd, 2007
·        That was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.
·        The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy?    BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!
·        Add Unemployment to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES!
·        Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy.
·        And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac?    OBAMA !
·        And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie?    OBAMA and the Democrat Congress
So when someone tries to blame Bush,  REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007,  THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!"
Budgets do not come from the White House.    They come from Congress, and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat Party.    Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 & 2011.
In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.
For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office.   At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budgets.
And where was Barack Obama during this time?   He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009.
If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets.   That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending.    After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.
If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.   In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is "I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th."
There is no way this will be widely publicized unless each of us sends it on!

Just another rape of our Constitutional Rights by a government that is trying to destroy our rights and turn us all into obedient little drones.

Range Report from 7/25/2013

Since I live way out in the county, I can shoot on my property without any legal issues other than being sure I have a good backstop.  On the property where my house is, I don't have a backstop, so we only shoot the air rifles here.  When I want to shoot the larger calibers I have to either go over to my family's other property about 200 feet away across the back, or drive several miles and pay a range fee.  For just plinking or teaching someone how to use a handgun, we just go over to the other property where the back stop is a large drainage ditch that we shoot down in to.  That is what I did today.

My daughter's boyfriend Matt has fired a shotgun before but no other types of firearms and he really wants to get a handgun.  I'd rather he learn more about firearms in general before he purchases one for himself.  So today I loaded up several different types and calibers of handguns a couple rifles and some shotguns to start his firearms education.

First we went over to the property and set up the range.

Several disposable plates with orange stickers from Amazon, such as Carteach discussed on his blog tacked to wood shims then stuck into the ground.  Add some 3 liter diet coke bottles filled with water and you have the targets.

The firearms used for the training.  Yes there is a .22 Beeman Air rifle there.

I started him off by going over the 4 Rules, and proper handling.  Then I discussed proper sight picture.

I started with my Heritage Arms .22 LR Single Action revolver.  After 24 rounds over coaching and stressing proper sight use he got a nice target.

He got all 6 on target after his first 24 rounds.  Then we moved up to one of my my Taurus 82's.

He figured out how to use the sights properly and to take his time.

Then we moved up to one of my Tokarevs and my FEG.

Shooting the FEG

Shooting the Tokarev

Then I put 3 mags through my FEG.  2 Mags, 14 rounds at one target and 1 mag 7 rounds at another, to check just how accurate I can get with it.  We are about 25 feet away from the targets.

Rapid Fire 14 rounds, 1 shot double action the remainder single action.  You can see I missed with 1 round and clipped the outside edge of the plate, one of those holes is actually two.

Rapid Fire 7 rounds, 1st round double action the rest single action.  Distance 25 feet.  I'm pretty sure that one round on the bottom right is my first double action round.  I wasn't trying to be super accurate, I was just trying to get all seven on the target as quickly as I could.  I think I did ok, so the FEG is now Designated EDC.

I've never claimed to be an expert pistol shot, I'm much better with rifles and shotguns, but those are 9 inch disposable plates at 25 feet.  That is Center Mass.  I'm happy.

Next up, my daughter wanted to shoot some shotguns and the Sears/Savage .22 Pump rifle.  So we got those out.

Here she is with the Maverick 88 with an ATI folding stock so it fits behind the seat of the truck.  No Taktikewl attachments, although I might be putting a mount for a Mini-Mag light with a remote touch switch base.

Here I am shooting my Rossi Side by Side 12 Gauge.  I LOVE this shotgun.  I really need to find a place to learn how to shoot Trap and Skeet.  My only complaint is it only has an extractor, not an auto ejector like my other Rossi and my New England Firearms single shots.

Below is a demonstration of Hydrostatic Shock I gave to Matt to explain the lethality of a firearm.

After Matt finished his soda I had him fill it with water, then I used the Sears/Savage .22 Pump to shoot it with 1 round from 25 feet away.  This is the result.  I explained to Matt, how most of the damage from a bullet is from the Hydrostatic Shock causes damage to the internal organs of the body through the shock wave propagating in the body tearing and damaging blood vessels and organs.  He thought the .22 would just punch a hole in the can, not rupture it and send it flying 6 feet.  This was not a sealed can of soda, it was just a can we filled with water.  So the fluids were not contained, and still the can ruptured.

A weird jam we had today.

Yes that is a Winchester .45 ACP case stuck in the chamber BACKWARDS.  A cleaning rod and my daughter Mary's multi-pliers took care of it real quick. and we finished off a 100 round box of Winchester White box.

So today I introduced a young man to shooting, the 4 Rules and how to correct a Malf in the field.

Now I just need to get him some more practice as the ammo situation allows before he decides which firearm he buys for himself.

Any day I can go out and shoot with my daughter and help someone else on the road to responsible Firearms Ownership is a Good Day.
