A Short Story

I ran across this short story by Matt Bracken tonight. It is a very insightful fiction story. It has a powerful message for todays news dramas. I encourage everyone to read this and think about todays news, politics, beliefs and the entertainment driven lives that we experience in this current time.

Confederate Grave Yard Visit

Last week I visited the Missouri Confederate Rest Home and Cemetery. The rest home is long gone and only one of the cottages and the Chapel remain. There are a couple of other building but they are now part of a State rehab project.

This is only one of two rest home like this. There used to be a dormitory and a series of 3 room cottages on 100 x 200 foot plots as well as workers dorm and a hospital.
The Daughters of the confederacy donated the beautiful guardian lion and other groups donated the furnishing for the cottages. The site is now a State property.

This place was for indignant confederate  veterans, their spouses and minor children. After the last Confederate died here the dorm was torn down and a group acquired it to preserve it, then the State bought it and maintains it (not very well)
   There is an office with posted hours but is never manned. The Chapel has posted hours and is always padlocked shut. So much for that. Here are some pictures I took of this venerable, hallowed place when I went to commune with my soul mates and kindred spirits. Long Live The Confederacy!

As a side note, the old soldiers, after the war, were proud Americans. They took delight in the daily raising of the United States Flag. Theirs was so large it could be seen in the county seat, Lexington Missouri, 6 miles away. At this time it is not permitted to fly any Confederate Flag here. If the graves are adorned with small flags they must be removed when you leave. No grave decoration are allowed.

If you are in Missouri, this great place is just North of Higginsville Missouri on Missouri State 13 Highway. Check it out as there is only one other place like it in the country.










Don't know why some of  the pictures doubled up and I cannot remove them since I adjusted the jpeg kb amount.

New Project

As a part of new project I ordered a 10.5 inch .45 ACP barrel. It is chambered and in the white. After a few sketches and thoughts I'm leaning towards an M3 style build. Not a copy but a ground up pistol made in the vein of that old venerable gun. Home made with hand made and of the shelf parts. This will take a lot of thought and a lot of hand work. I anticipate using  Springfield Armory  XD .45 mags. Compact and holding 13 rounds and readily available and made of stainless steel. I'll probably use a AR grip modified of course and maybe even an AR trigger group. Dunno. If I can get the visions in my head converted into steel it will be way fucking cool. Any way I look at it will be a small mountain of work just to make a crap one. And I don't like crap. More to come.

Back in November I captured this picture. This is near Kansas City International Airport in Kansas City Missouri.  This is clear evidence of a planned pattern of spraying know as chemtrails.  And yes, I watched all of them develop and no, they are not cloud formations. These stripes hung in the atmosphere for several hours and did not dissipate as condensation does. I have seen this several times over the years. sometimes they are further apart and sometimes they are gridded. But no matter the form they always stay for hours. Now tell me there is nothing going on.

Matt Bracken Books

I have the Matt Bracken Trilogy, not the electronic one but all three books "Enemies Foreign and Domestic", "Foreign Enemies and Traitors" and "Domestic Enemies". I also have the book " Castigo Cay" by Matt Bracken as well. In the back of Castigo Cay, published in 2011, it says he is working on another Dan Kilmer novel. Kilmer is the main character in the Castigo Cay book which tells the swashbuckling tale of a Marine, his sail boat and crew and the women and enemies in his life during and after the fall of the late, great America. Well, it's 2015 and I'm eagerly awaiting the next installment of the Kilmer story. All four of Bracken books are great reading and full of adventure, ideas and can give you an insight as to what America is facing. Bracken also has an anthology which sounds like it has some good writing. alas, it is only available on Kindle. maybe it's time for me to get one of those infernal devices? I know that writing can be difficult and time consuming so I have been quiet about the missing book. But at this point I'm asking....Come on Dan, bring us another Kilmer adventure. Your fans are eagerly waiting...........

File This... Nicholson Files are Crap

As I've mention many time on here, I dabble with making knives and other metal objects and work on guns as a hobby. In these past time I use files. I have always used Nicholson files as this is what is readily available in most hardware stores and various tool outlets. Over the years I have notice that Nicholson file are no longer serviceable. They will not cut gun metal and they will not cut most knife steel. These steels will leave grooves in the file! One ting I have noticed is that Nicholson files are now made in Mexico. I have 10-15 worthless Nicholson files that will be made into knives when I get that segment of my life. It's a pity, in my younger days I could use a Nicholson for many years with proper care. Carding and chalking will go long way to preserving files. Now, you take one from the package and it will make a handful of passes then it's done. Pure crap! I a on the look out for a decent set of files. I have heard that Bahco  makes good files. I do have a few decent ones with blue plastic handles that say Supertainium on them. I got them from a welding supplier but even these are loosing their cutting ability. Does anyone have any suggestions? Leave them in the comment section or even email me. I would only suggest that a person by a Nicholson file if it is New Old Stock. Some that have been sitting on a hardware stores shelves for many years. Do not buy any new ones that say Made In Mexico.

I did find this guy. He has a lot of info an good files.

Plastic Skins

Well, I have started a new skill that one day I hope to turn into a new venture. Kydex forming, making knife sheaths and gun holster and tool carriers from thermoplastics. I have been piecing together the supplies and after making my sons Christmas present I had to coble together a Kydex press. I also had to order the foam for this press and there is none available in Kansas City, none that I have found so far anyway. I made the sheath for a knife I made from an Old Hickory brand butcher knife, I made it in the Kephart style and them modified that to my liking. Then I just knocked out the sheath like I had been doing it all my life. Then just for me and general practice I made a sheath for a Buck 120, which was a real bear and then a holster for a Gerber multi-tool and that was a pain in the ass too. I do not have these two item done yet as I need a couple of more things to finish. I need longer eyelets and a heat gun. And once again I am BROKE. I start back at Home Depot this coming Friday and I got a big ol' raise too for coming back. BUT, all they had was part time so.....

Any way the sheath for the Buck will be in the old style, meant to be carried thrust behind your belt with a finial holding it from sliding through. The finial is on a separate strap of Kydex that will wrap around the sheath body, hence the need for longer eyelets to go through 4 layers.

The holster for the Gerber only needs the belt clip formed and I need a heat gun for that. So until funds are flowing again this, sigh, is on hold, dammit.

The knife...

The sheath is made from .60 digital tiger stripe camo Kydex.

Here is the starting of the sheath for the Buck 120...I think it's gonna  be sexy with the black Kydex and a one inch strip of camo Kydex for the brass finial. More to come.

And finally the Gerber project...

This skill will come in handy for many things, especially when I get my blacksmithing shop going and then my bladesmithing shop in order.

More On Kalifornia

I regards to my FUCK KALIFORNIA post, here are the details as I feel free to give. My brother, whom I am very close too has had a wreck of a marriage for many years. He like many other people has been out of work for may years. He received a job offer in Kalifornia and accepted it. We packed his incredible amount of tools, furniture and other household and personal item. We talking a full 35 foot semi trailer. They got out to the land of fuckthewhiteguyistan, and he started that good federal job. Shortly after ward he told his teenaged daughter that he was going divorce is wife. The bitch wife and kids later took a trip to mommy dearest's homeland the good ol' Phillipine Islands. Daughter told mommy dearest about the impending divorce and the PI famil discussed it. Evidently in the PI version of Catholicism divorce in not approved unless ther is something horrible happening in the family. So, the day of there departure back to the land of the BIG PX the daughter told her cousins that Daddy had been sexually molesting her for many years. She was 12 at the time I believe. Family come back to the USA and the PI family calls mommie dearest and tell her of the story tols in the PI's. MD calls the cops and tells them this story AND tells them that Daddy has guns and is a violent man. At 2:00AM the trustworthy Riverside POPO execute a felony no knock raid on Daddy's house. 12 guys with machine guns pointing at my brother. They took him into custody and recorded a call the popo made to his daughter. The recording was too damaged to present in court and the police said they threw it away. Many months later when things were not looking good for the prosecution the recording showed up and had been enhanced to a edusable state. It was later found that a written transcription was read aloud and recorded and present as the original recording. The daughter and mommy dearest had a script ready and proceeded to tell a fantastic story of molestation that supposedly started when she was 7 or 8.When the forms were filled out, guess what, my brothers name was not on It, the name of one his sons friends was on it. Now, mommy dearest never noticed anything in all those years, my brother frequently worked out of state and daughter always sent him emails telling him she missed him, loved her daddy and hated her mommy, please come home and save me from mommy...... You get the picture. When her Daddy was gone she was almost in a state of depression, she became withdrawn and childish. When Daddy came home she became a normal animated little girl. He has over 600 emails she sent to him when he went out of state. Months and years go by, Several lawyers took his money and dis nothing. One lawyer told him he was a man and to take what he has coming to him! So now two years have gone by, the prosecution has never once put the girl in front of a judge. The girl has never been taken to a doctor or a shrink. The so called mother never noticed anything and her family never notice anything No one notice or said anything in all those years of supposed abuse.The judge remanded this case back to the local court since the prosecution was never prepared and then told the prosecution how to execute the case! (There will be a lawsuit over this and a disbarment of a judge with the help of the Bar Association) . So finally after two years of hiding the girl, making up stories and coaching her on what to say the big day came. Witness' were flown in from his home state for both sides. In the end the prosecution had NO evidence just say so. The Defense had many people that could and did refute every bit of prosecution testimony. The jury made their misinformed decision and found my brother guilty of 4 counts of child abuse. The jury also referred to his family and witnesses as hicks, rednecks and liars. Now many of the dates on which they claimed these things happened, my brother was not even in the state and had evidence to prove it, the court dismissed that evidence, the court dismissed those 600 emails, the prosecution presented NO evidence. The descriptions his daughter gave came directly from pornographic movies or stories and were worse with every telling of the story. They were filled with lurid, graphic descriptions of sexual acts and depravities. But not one piece of evidence was presented. Now my brother is looking at 14 years in jail and having his name on a damned predator list for the rest of his life. With no evidence.  I can hardly wait to see how the divorce trial come out now.

Overturn USC 922

Help this guy overturn USC section 922 which illegally bans and or severely restricts the ownership, manufacture and possession of automatic guns, firearm suppressors and other fine things. Really this could be the crack in the damn that becomes the torrent of legal changes to our way of life.
So, brother can ya spare a buck?

Really, lets help with this.


Rebel Mississippi recommended this to me. Things like this are one of the reasons I do not endorse the NRA, that and being way to ready to bend over for government and gun banners alike.

Take a read of this and  cancel any NRA subs you might have. Then put that money into Gun Owners of America or even JPFO (Jews For the Protection of Firearms Ownership) both good groups and ready to do battle with the minions of gun control.

A Wicked Trio

As I've mention before I have a quite a few knives. I like blades, they always give me enjoyment and I find my fascinated by them. Lately, my interests have run to the tactical, the large and Bowies. Tactical folders have been in my pockets for many years now and I have quite few of them. There's one in my pocket every day without fail.
Bowies are a part of our American history. They were widely carried in a certain part of our countries development, they were carried by Confederate soldiers and greatly feared by United States soldiers. At one time they were the only knife that was illegal to carry. Today they have made a resurgence and quality ones can be had for just a couple hundred dollars. Excellent ones by custom makers can go for 5-10 THOUSAND dollars, look at the fantastic fighting bowies made by Bill Bagwell. During and after the bowie reign, the Arkansas toothpick was on the scene. A very large double edge knife, it too was greatly feared as a combat tool at one time.

Take a look at this deadly trio. The first and largest is my Cold Steel Natchez Bowie. Huge, wickedly sharp and beautiful. It is capable of severing a persons hand or arm, as they say, clean off. The next is a rarely seen folder, a Benchmade Balisong AFCK. The AFCK stands for Advanced Folding Combat Knife. This was the first tactical folder I ever had and carried it daily for many years. This thing was so freaking sharp I cut the tip of my thumb off and DID NOT FEEL IT!  Yep, scary sharp. Notice the hole in the blade, word was they paid Spyderco a fair sum of money for the right to use that hole.
Next up is an Arkansas Toothpick, a Damascus dagger made by an unknown artist probably in Turkey or Pakistan. It has buffalo horn scales on a full tang and Damascus steel guard. If I remember right it has 576 layers or some such number. The edge is like a jillion tiny razors ready to cleave through flesh.

I call these fellows the Wicked Trio, look for yourself. Pretty deadly looking huh?

Since they aren't seen often I've include a pic of the AFCK on it's own.

Now imagine this guy giving you the look on the street with a Bowie in one hand a Toothpick in the other,
For shits and giggles take a look at the picture behind me that hangs in my dining room. Fitting artwork for groups, I say .

Bosses Redux

Well, well, well. We had ANOTHER meeting at work. Now Her Hotness and I are sharing a cubicle, another salesman has been hired, HH and I are not supposed to be in the office unless we are finalizing a sale, we are not allowed to have our hands in our pockets, offices are just for wasting time (I guess that's why the two bosses seldom leave theirs). Let's see, I was told I had 7-8 classes yet to finish. I was working on the third from the last when I was called into this latest bs meeting. The list went on and on. Her Hotness disappeared later that day, I don't know of she went home sick or angry. She WAS both, sick and angry. She and I spoke  and agreed they will be looking for two new sales people SOON. Utter childish behavior from a sick and twisted individual.

Hmmm, Just wondering

I hope all is well over at Stephens place. He's been promising a story for 2 months now. I know blogging can get the best of us, we all get tired of it and need time off. So with good intentions I wish him well in his business, his life, his love and his site. You never know what that Critter is up too.

What The Fuck?

Comment of the day... "We can't tell you everything you need to know about selling cars but, we can give you enough rope to hang yourself". Really, this was said this morning in a meeting for the new sales people. Hmm, is that some fucked up management skills or what? In the construction trades, he wouldn't last two fucking days in management before either the Union called him out or a muscle bound laborer did. Oh, and the new woman sales person , who happens to be tiny and smoking hot and dresses to heer best advantage, got the standard one hour offsite lunch, leaving me the only sales person on the floor. When it came my turn for lunch, I was told to grab it and get back as &*@$ would be the only sales person on the floor. Uh, unless I'm wrong that is called sexist. Oh and by the by, They don't pay for the lunch hour, so by making me work during my break they tweaked a labor law or two. The day just got better and better! Good thing I took notes!
