General Discussion / Re: Remington ammo back in action
« on: Today at 01:37:50 AM »
Is it just my cynicism, or does it seem like Remington is only ramping up ammo production AFTER their across-the-board price increases took affect this month?

Effective 4/1/2021 Federal, Remington, CCI, and SPEER ammunition will take a
price increase of 3-15% across all products from our last price list.

Is it remotely possible they held off on starting the 24/7 ammo production until after 4/1?  I mean, they did .... so ....  was it all part of "the plan"?

Same shit with astrazeneca.  A few people get blood clots.  More people die from covid.  Test for the genetic issue with the blood clots and don't give it to them.  The risks are still extremely small.  Perhaps lower than 1 in a million.

Why are you still on here arguing against things that you can't win on?

YOU do not get to tell US what to do.

Yet, here you are, telling everyone what's best for them.

Just stop.

Six cases of blood clots and they are cancelling the most important medical achievement of the 21st century? I don't think so. Offer is still open for zombie insurance. Do it now while you can still type.

Ever watch the episode from the original Star Trek series, where this parasite lands on people and causes them to go insane?

Spock got infected and volunteered to have a cure tested on him after Dr. McCoy discovered very bright light killed the creatures.  Unfortunately, it also made Spock blind in the process.

Later, McCoy discovered that only a certain spectrum of light needed to be administered -- meaning blindness need not be a side effect.  Luckily, due to Vulcans having extra eyelids, Spock's blindness was temporary.

For some reason, I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop on the COVID vaccine -- just like that SciFi story.  Had we known X, fewer people would have had to suffer the vaccines' side effects.

Fair enough, edited my post.  Still hard to transmit, unlike covid.

Who said otherwise?  The story said STD cases are at an all-time high.  COVID is taking resources from tracking and those infected are not seeking treatment, but nothing compared STDs to COVID.  Who said it was easier to transmit STDs than COVID?

You just want to argue, even if it's with yourself.  You make up this stuff as if someone else was saying -- or thinking -- it besides you.

Just stop.

Not really.   The not sure part was because there is nothing with 100% certainty. I logged into the same "program's" backend and checked the settings.

You think that required a response?

Feel better now?

Can only get STD's from sex so no lockdown.  But the use of penis masks are highly recommended and protect yourself and others!  :shaka:  :rofl:

Is HIV classified as an STD?

Here's a clue (doing your homework for you):

So, if HIV is an STD, and you believe one "Can only get STD's from sex", then all the people who contract HIV without sexual contact are NOT infected with an STD?

Blood transfusions

Sharing dirty needles

Needle prick from a syringe

Trying to stop profuse bleeding at an accident scene

Being born of a mother with HIV

These are just a few of the known ways in which HIV has been transmitted.  None of them involved sexual contact.

Did you make another "mistake?"  Would you like to revise your statement to be more factual?

Just because a disease CAN be sexually transmitted doesn't mean it can ONLY be transmitted sexually.
Political Discussion / Re: Election Fraud Evidence Thread
« on: April 13, 2021, 03:44:42 PM »
Hawaii and many other states have had very successful mail-in voting for years.  There is no mass fraud.  Either way.  Just because technically something could happen does not mean it actually happens.

"FOR YEARS" being the operative words. 

The states that swung the election for Biden instituted universal mail-in voting within months, maybe 1 year, before the election was held.  They based ballot dissemination on voter roles that were wrong for years and years and with no effort to clean them up prior to mailing ballots. 

New Jersey tried the do a mail-in election, and the thing became such a mess, the courts told them they had to hold another election.  The mess they created was beyond any remedy other than a do-over.

If you want to do a comparison between states, let's use New Jersey.  Hawaii is in another category, having had time to already work out the kinks before the 2020 election.
Not sure what updates they could even do.  It's a button to either allow or deny ability to cancel appointments. You can even set a timeframe.

You had us at "Not sure."  The rest is noise.
Reloading / Re: 223 Federal brass sucks!
« on: April 13, 2021, 03:15:04 PM »
I don't reload, but I've read that 5.56 cases are better for reloading than .223 in general, since the cases are thicker to handle the higher pressure.

Simply put, the 5.56 case has thicker brass walls to handle higher pressures and,
therefore, has less interior volume than the .223 case. This is especially important
to reloaders because the powder loads are affected by these different case capacities.

I've always bought 5.56 and saved the brass in case I start reloading or sell it.

This is the BEST advertisement AGAINST the vaccine you could ask for.

General Discussion / Re: Chief Ballard to step down June 1st 2021
« on: April 13, 2021, 02:21:47 PM »
By the quarter million dollar severance that Kealoha got it is plain to see that there are plenty of parasites in our state government who were sad to see him go and bribed him to not spill the beans. In order for the chief and prosecutor to run a crime syndicate, it must have taken substantial amount of cover from other officials who still have yet to be held accountable. The FBI will only take their prosecution so far because if they cast too wide a net it puts their cases in jeopardy, so there are officials who would have gone down for aiding and abetting but were spared by the sprawling nature of city wide corruption.

Chief Ballard was given the impossible task of virtue signaling a new era of accountability while maintaining the corrupt status quo. She had pressure from her union, multiple committees, elected officials, and when the feds jumped on that pile over her misappropriation it was too much. I do not envy the next prisoner to take over that office because they will have the same mandate. We really need to replace our entire political class or at least enough of them that the rest will be intimidated into doing their jobs and representing the voters.

... or quitting so they can run for federal office.

Don't forget.... Lazy Mazie, possibly the dumbest member of the Senate, was Lt Governor.

To be a little more precise, it's NOT J&J that is "pausing" vaccinations, it is the CDC and FDA. and they are only making a "recommendation" that has no force of law, people and physicians are still free to obtain the J&J injection if they so choose. J&J asserts that there has been no causal connection made between their vaccine and the reported cerebral venous thrombosis, but they say they are willing to look at the evidence. The claim from CDC and FDA is that they need a few days to make the medical community aware of the signs and symptoms and the proper treatment for the condition... the vaccination pause will only be a matter of a very few days.

Dr. Steven Hatfield on WarRoom Pandemic today claimed that hydroxychloroquine has been an effective treatment if administered within 5 days of the onset of symptoms and Fauci et al who bad-mouthed the therapeutic are responsible for hundreds of thousands of needless deaths. He hinted that misinformation from Fauci et al had a financial motive.


The take-away is the FDA, CDC, vaccine makers and politicians have been pushing vaccines on the population.  The "pause" demonstrates that the experts are just as in the dark as they were when predicting 2M deaths at the pandemic's beginning.  They are making recommendations that affect everyone who trusts them, but there's no accountability for poor judgement or incompetence.

Track records of these people are not stellar.  Anything they recommend should be taken with a grain of salt the size of a salt lick!

I dunno.  The more I think about it, it seems like a huge case of "hurt feelings."

Poor susan is hurt because the commission and allegedly, the mayors office don't think she is doing a good job.  And the rampant hoo, lol!

The job of police chief is hard.  Very hard.  You're gonna get criticized, labeled, and evaluated all the time.  Many times unjustifiably so.  Hard to believe she didn't know this when accepting the position.

But you stay the course and embrace the negatives while striving for the positives.  And at the end if you are dismissed you hold your head up high knowing you did the best you could.  Unless you know deep inside you didn't do the best you could.

In this case it looks like she is a crybaby or maybe she knows something and feels it's time to get the fuck out of there before the shit hits the fan.

Either way I'm not exuberant or excited knowing the commission will be looking just for another puppet.

I think she was always put in that position to be a scapegoat for the failures of the department even before she was appointed.  Who, in the wake of the Kealoha scandal, wants to be the next chief -- knowing full well the commission is going to keep the chief under a microscope the whole time?

The commission not only allowed the previous chief to do what he did, but they enabled him.  Lack of oversight, failure to recognize the evidence, and then agreeing to  massive payouts to him when he left?  Now they want to appear to have cleaned up their own act by micro-managing the new chief.  If Ballard understood this when she went in, it must be worse now than she expected.

If the department as a whole was underperforming, she would have been happy to step into the job knowing she had plenty of room for improvement.  But, since it was the top position that caused the problems before her, she had to work to make HER POSITION better.  Tough to do while also doing her day-to-day job.

Her resignation may have been preordained by the commission from the start.  The surprise announcement in the wake of her poor review smacks of a diversion.  She was leaving this year no matter what.  She was a "buffer" between Kealoha and the next chief they really wanted to appoint -- separation to protect their star appointee.

I could be wrong, but I can't really believe they would select a replacement for Kealoha without knowing the candidate could do he job perfectly.
Went to HPD today to pass on an appointment to a friend and I decided to ask what happened.  So from what one of them heard.  (Not 100% certain), might have been an IT upgrade error.  Said they did an upgrade that was supposed to improve the system but it deleted the cancel button.  So they are working on fixing it.  Cross our fingers guys!

That was my guess/assumption -- some IT guy didn't know what he/she/it was doing (lot of that going around lately!  :rofl: ).

No response on my email yet.  I hope they fix it before I get a reply.  OBE

So, J&J is now following AstraZeneca in "pausing" vaccinations over "rare" blood clotting problems.

This is one of the side-effects the "crazy conspiracy nuts" have been warning about -- not specifically, but it falls under  "we don't know, because the trials were insufficient before mass use".

"I told you so" is lacking when you've died of an aneurysm or embolism.

When you scream that mail in votes should be avoided as a party platform and tell everyone to vote in tend to get what you ask for.

You still don't get it.

The integrity of the vote is the issue, NOT the outcome.

If mail-in voting is significantly more susceptible to fraud and illegal counting than in-person, then how can you honestly and rationally say that the mail-in numbers are legit?

I trust the in-person numbers way more than the mail-in numbers.  That's the issue.

And you keep saying "you get what you ask for."  That also applies to low-integrity, highly illegal vote counts under the mail-in system.  The Democrats asked for it, and they won with it.  So, yeah, keep parroting the "you get what you ask for" nonsense.  The majority was against universal mail-in, because they all know it's ripe for corruption and stealing of elections.

But, you do you.
Political Discussion / Re: RNs can perform abortions in Hawaii
« on: April 13, 2021, 12:56:59 PM »
So will the cost go down cause generally Rn's make less than Dr.'s right?

If the quality of care is the same as the doctors', then the cost should remain the same.  Insurance pays based on a common and reasonable cost, not the salary of the person performing the service.

If, however, the doctor makes more because the quality of his/her services are better, then it's a problem that less qualified nurses are being allowed to do the procedures.

This is an example of the trade-off we would get under a single-payer, government-run healthcare system.  The managers decide how much they are willing to pay, and the providers are faced with trying to provide services at those cost points which might involve seeking out lower quality sources of care.

You can't complain about the price, then turn around and complain about the quality when your cost is lower.  Good champaign at beer prices doesn't exist.

The officer who shot the driver and the Minneapolis Police Chief have both resigned from the force.

This, as the city has already had to deal with 2 nights of  riots  protests.

In that instance perhaps, depends if you view Russia as a greater threat than ISIS.  Which I would think is the case.  If not then yes, Russia would temporarily be a friend.

So, you agree that Russia is our friend, and yet you praised Hunter because his "Burisma Position Was ‘F*** You to Putin?"

What reality are you living in?
