Baretta USA Moving

Good for Baretta.
Baretta USA announced yesterday that it is moving all operations out of the Peoples Republic of Maryland to its new facility announced earlier this year located in Tennessee


Beretta general manager Jeff Cooper said that a sweeping gun-control measure that was passed last year initially contained provisions that would have prohibited the Italian gun maker from being able to produce, store or even import into Maryland the products that the company sells around the world. While the legislation was changed to remove some of those provisions, Cooper said the possibility that such restrictions could be reinstated left the company worried about maintaining a firearm-making factory in Maryland.
"While we had originally planned to use the Tennessee facility for new equipment and for production of new product lines only, we have decided that it is more prudent from the point of view of our future welfare to move the Maryland product lines in their entirety to the new Tennessee facility," Cooper said in a news release announcing the move.
The company anticipates the plant in more gun-friendly Tennessee will involve a $45 million investment in building and equipment and employ about 300 people during the next five years. Beretta said it has no plans to relocate its office, administrative and executive support functions from Accokeek, Maryland.
Of course Maryland Governor OMally's mouth piece Nina Smith responded by saying
"We're disappointed with this decision, but the common-sense gun safety law we passed, which includes licenses for handgun purchases, is keeping schools, communities and law enforcement personnel safe," 
Typical leftist behavior, the use of common sense is usually uttered by the fascists to convince the public that the law whatever it may be is for their own good. They always fail to bring up that their own policies of institutional  generational welfare have absolutely destroyed the inner cities of many large urban areas, Baltimore is a prime example 
So for some feel good law that does nothing to mitigate gang violence and directly impact private citizens ability to arm themselves effectively has led to a major corporation to relocate to a better place that welcomes there business. The impact will be be direct in the loss of the highly skilled jobs and the tax revenue generated by  Beretta and its sub contractors. 
Another great job brought to you by the Democrats and leftist policy. 

Time to Start

It been almost 5 months since I posted last, a new schedule at work and the normal day to day activities have made it hard to do. This is no excuse  I have a lot of material I need to get up.
Especially now that the world is  on fire and we have a an administration that has checked out.

Obama his minions and the so called conservative Republicans have caused tremendous harm to this country. I will start posting again just to add one more voice to the discourse

Thanks for the time

Kiev

While we were sleeping fighting broke out in central Kiev again. The government  allegedly has been using snipers against the club armed civilians  with at least 50 more dead in the fighting according to press reports,

This is a great example why certain elements of our government at Modor on the Potomac want us disarmed, Highly motivated good men with rifles would  make the security forces think twice about what they are doing out there. If I can find the video of the attack on a government APC I will post it.

All I can say  is good luck it takes huge courage to stand up with clubs when your opponents have rifles and are willing too use them on the civilians.

Once again I thank God for the wisdom of out Founding Fathers in writing the Second Amendment guaranteeing are God given rights for not only self defense but to stand up against tyranny.

I Am A Ukrainian

This young women is very brave. What is happening in the Ukraine will eventually happen here when the 3% have had enough and by then hopefully the sheeple will awaken from their MSM coma of sports and reality TV.

Our current government is as bad as what they are dealing with there. With the wide spread corruption and dishonesty displayed by all of our politicians, coupled with the creeping totalitarianism of the same how much different are we than the people who want freedom in the Ukraine?

Captain John J. McGinty III

Captain John J. McGinty III just left us at the age of 73. He is one of the many hero's of Vietnam. Here is the citation from his Medal of Honor: 2d Lt. McGinty’s platoon, which was providing rear security to protect the withdrawal of the battalion from a position which had been under attack for 3 days, came under heavy small arms, automatic weapons and mortar fire from an estimated enemy regiment. With each successive human wave which assaulted his 32-man platoon during the 4-hour battle, 2d Lt. McGinty rallied his men to beat off the enemy. In 1 bitter assault, 2 of the squads became separated from the remainder of the platoon. With complete disregard for his safety, 2d Lt. McGinty charged through intense automatic weapons and mortar fire to their position. Finding 20 men wounded and the medical corpsman killed, he quickly reloaded ammunition magazines and weapons for the wounded men and directed their fire upon the enemy. Although he was painfully wounded as he moved to care for the disabled men, he continued to shout encouragement to his troops and to direct their fire so effectively that the attacking hordes were beaten off. When the enemy tried to out-flank his position, he killed 5 of them at point-blank range with his pistol. When they again seemed on the verge of overrunning the small force, he skillfully adjusted artillery and air strikes within 50 yards of his position. This destructive firepower routed the enemy, who left an estimated 500 bodies on the battlefield. 2d Lt. McGinty’s personal heroism, indomitable leadership, selfless devotion to duty, and bold fighting spirit inspired his men to resist the repeated attacks by a fanatical enemy, reflected great credit upon himself, and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the U.S. Naval Service.

B-52 without a tail

Back on Jan 10 1964 during a test flight, a B-52H model lost its vertical tailfin in flight. Six hours later, with support from the ground, Boeing test pilot Chuck Fisher successfully performed the first and only Stratofortress‘s tailless landing.

Obama True to Form

More bullshit from the White House on gun control. Did anyone think Obama would miss a chance? Here are some of the text from his Telemundo interview.

This is Phil Rucker of the Washington Post

President Obama called on Congress on Tuesday to revisit gun control legislation, saying in the wake of Monday's deadly mass shooting at the Washington  Navy Yard that lawmakers should take what he considers "basic actions" to toughen the nation's gun laws.

In an interview with the Spanish-language television network Telemundo, Obama said the country's background check system for gun buyers is so weak it makes the United States vulnerable to mass shootings, such as the one last December that killed 26 small children at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn."You know, I do get concerned that this becomes a ritual that we go through every three, four months, where we have these horrific mass shootings," Obama said in the interview. "Everybody expresses understandable horror. We all embrace the families — and obviously our thoughts and prayers are with those families right now as they're absorbing this incredible loss. And yet we're not willing to take some basic actions."

The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting propelled gun safety to the top of Obama's second-term legislative agenda, but Senate Republicans as well as some Democrats in April blocked a proposal to expand background checks.

"You have a majority of the American people and even a large percentage of Republicans who are ready to move the country forward, and yet we keep on getting blocked," Obama said. "It's a challenge that I'm speaking out on, but ultimately we're also gonna meet pressure from the public to see if we can change how they do business up there."

More lies and bullshit from the  Obama, who is the large percentage?  I hate to be cruel but the Washington Navy Yard count was like many weekend in Chi-Town as the gang bangers fight for drug territory. But do you here a peep from the MSM? No of course you don't.

One again for the sheep to understand , Gun control the way the leftist look at it is a road to confiscation pure and simple. There ultimate goal is to disarm Americans so we can all be subservient to the government

Please remember 5 points including one of our founder Ben Franklin s quote..

1. Disarmament is a prelude to genocide!
2. Free men own guns, slaves don't!
3. Be your own first responder!
4. The experts (Obummer, Stalin, Lenin, Mao, Hitler) all agree, gun control works!
5. “Those who beat their swords into plowshares usually end up plowing for those who kept their swords.” -Benjamin Franklin

Stay safe out there and pray for the country.

Washington Navy Yard

Well the ghouls of the left including Fienstien did not even wait tell the bodies were cold before their siren cry for gun control started to echo through the  land. While the shooting is a tragedy and I will not go into the debate of gun free zones, all I want to know is why the left politicians and talking heads never talk about the psychotropic drugs that almost to the person these mass murderers are on.

Could it be that these politician who are bought and paid for by big Pharma and the fascist politicians like Fienstien and her ilk are more interested in power and control by disarming law abiding citizens but never doing a damn thing about criminals or the drug companies.
.
Stand vigilant, these are trying times for all off us. Issues ranging from Syria, the NSA spying and the economic train wreck brought about by these fools in D.C will test our will. The government over the next 12 months will be desperate to increase their reach and power while at the same time try to placate the sheep.

Ship Of Fools, Pic Of The Day

Check out this pic from the White House. With these idots in the room you know we are truly screwed.


Still Think It's Sarin?

For the folks out there who want to believe this was a nerve agent attack below is the CDC's guidelines for PPE and Decon. I'll post a link for the whole thing.
As a retired GI I have extensive training in operating in an NBC environment. What you see on the realsed tapes indicate to me that this was no way a nerve agent attack. Two things that stand out are the lack off PPE by the hospital staff and the fact the the patients are still clothed indicating no decontamination prior to transport.Chlorine or similair agents aI can believe but nerve agent, I don't think so.
 So now you have to wonder what is the hidden agenda by this administration and the helpfull idot RINO Neocons, only time will tell.

Call your local representative and tell them to vote no on Syria.

Personal Protective Equipment

  • GENERAL INFORMATION: First Responders should use a NIOSH-certified Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear (CBRN) Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) with a Level A protective suit when entering an area with an unknown contaminant or when entering an area where the concentration of the contaminant is unknown. Level A protection should be used until monitoring results confirm the contaminant and the concentration of the contaminant.
    NOTE: Safe use of protective clothing and equipment requires specific skills developed through training and experience.
  • LEVEL A: (RED ZONE): Select when the greatest level of skin, respiratory, and eye protection is required. This is the maximum protection for workers in danger of exposure to unknown chemical hazards or levels above the IDLH or greater than the AEGL-2.
    • A NIOSH-certified CBRN full-face-piece SCBA operated in a pressure-demand mode or a pressure-demand supplied air hose respirator with an auxiliary escape bottle.
    • A Totally-Encapsulating Chemical Protective (TECP) suit that provides protection against CBRN agents.
    • Chemical-resistant gloves (outer).
    • Chemical-resistant gloves (inner).
    • Chemical-resistant boots with a steel toe and shank.
    • Coveralls, long underwear, and a hard hat worn under the TECP suit are optional items.
  • LEVEL B: (RED ZONE): Select when the highest level of respiratory protection is necessary but a lesser level of skin protection is required. This is the minimum protection for workers in danger of exposure to unknown chemical hazards or levels above the IDLH or greater than AEGL-2. It differs from Level A in that it incorporates a non-encapsulating, splash-protective, chemical-resistant splash suit that provides Level A protection against liquids but is not airtight.
    • A NIOSH-certified CBRN full-face-piece SCBA operated in a pressure-demand mode or a pressure-demand supplied air hose respirator with an auxiliary escape bottle.
    • A hooded chemical-resistant suit that provides protection against CBRN agents.
    • Chemical-resistant gloves (outer).
    • Chemical-resistant gloves (inner).
    • Chemical-resistant boots with a steel toe and shank.
    • Coveralls, long underwear, a hard hat worn under the chemical-resistant suit, and chemical-resistant disposable boot-covers worn over the chemical-resistant suit are optional items.
  • LEVEL C: (YELLOW ZONE): Select when the contaminant and concentration of the contaminant are known and the respiratory protection criteria factors for using Air Purifying Respirators (APR) or Powered Air Purifying Respirators (PAPR) are met. This level is appropriate when decontaminating patient/victims.
    • A NIOSH-certified CBRN tight-fitting APR with a canister-type gas mask or CBRN PAPR for air levels greater than AEGL-2.
    • A NIOSH-certified CBRN PAPR with a loose-fitting face-piece, hood, or helmet and a filter or a combination organic vapor, acid gas, and particulate cartridge/filter combination or a continuous flow respirator for air levels greater than AEGL-1.
    • A hooded chemical-resistant suit that provides protection against CBRN agents.
    • Chemical-resistant gloves (outer).
    • Chemical-resistant gloves (inner).
    • Chemical-resistant boots with a steel toe and shank.
    • Escape mask, face shield, coveralls, long underwear, a hard hat worn under the chemical-resistant suit, and chemical-resistant disposable boot-covers worn over the chemical-resistant suit are optional items.
  • LEVEL D: (GREEN ZONE): Select when the contaminant and concentration of the contaminant are known and the concentration is below the appropriate occupational exposure limit or less than AEGL-1 for the stated duration times.
    • Limited to coveralls or other work clothes, boots, and gloves


    Decontamination

  • INTRODUCTION: The purpose of decontamination is to make an individual and/or their equipment safe by physically removing toxic substances quickly and effectively. Care should be taken during decontamination, because absorbed agent can be released from clothing and skin as a gas. Your Incident Commander will provide you with decontaminants specific for the agent released or the agent believed to have been released.
  • DECONTAMINATION CORRIDOR: The following are recommendations to protect the first responders from the release area:
    • Position the decontamination corridor upwind and uphill of the hot zone.
    • The warm zone should include two decontamination corridors. One decontamination corridor is used to enter the warm zone and the other for exiting the warm zone into the cold zone. The decontamination zone for exiting should be upwind and uphill from the zone used to enter.
    • Decontamination area workers should wear appropriate PPE. See the PPE section of this card for detailed information.
    • A solution of detergent and water (which should have a pH value of at least 8 but should not exceed a pH value of 10.5) should be available for use in decontamination procedures. Soft brushes should be available to remove contamination from the PPE.
    • Labeled, durable 6-mil polyethylene bags should be available for disposal of contaminated PPE.
  • INDIVIDUAL DECONTAMINATION: The following methods can be used to decontaminate an individual:
    • Decontamination of First Responder:
      • Begin washing PPE of the first responder using soap and water solution and a soft brush. Always move in a downward motion (from head to toe). Make sure to get into all areas, especially folds in the clothing. Wash and rinse (using cold or warm water) until the contaminant is thoroughly removed.
      • Remove PPE by rolling downward (from head to toe) and avoid pulling PPE off over the head. Remove the SCBA after other PPE has been removed.
      • Place all PPE in labeled durable 6-mil polyethylene bags.
    • Decontamination of Patient/Victim:
      • Remove the patient/victim from the contaminated area and into the decontamination corridor.
      • Remove all clothing (at least down to their undergarments) and place the clothing in a labeled durable 6-mil polyethylene bag.
      • Thoroughly wash and rinse (using cold or warm water) the contaminated skin of the patient/victim using a soap and water solution. Be careful not to break the patient/victim’s skin during the decontamination process, and cover all open wounds.
      • Cover the patient/victim to prevent shock and loss of body heat.
      • Move the patient/victim to an area where emergency medical treatment can be provided.

Turkish Intercept

It starting to get real in the Med. One miscalcualtion by either the idiots in D.C or by the Syrians or thier allies and the fuse to WWIII may be lit. Idiots all!


British Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets nearly clashed with Turkish Air Force F-16s over Cyprus According to the Cyprus-based Famagusta Gazette, the RAF Typhoons based at Akrotiri, Cyprus, to provide the air defense of the island following the Syrian crisis, nearly battled with Turkish jets in a close encounter on Sept. 2. It looks like Turkey scrambled two F-16 fighter jets from Incirlik airbase, to intercept the British Typhoons that had allegedly violated the airspace over the occupied part of Cyprus. According to the details collected by the Cypriot media outlet, the UK Ministry of Defence and Cyprus Defence Minister confirmed the incident, however it’s not clear whether the British planes scrambled to intercept the Turkish fighters “after radars detected suspicious flights in the area of the occupied city of Famagusta,” or viceversa. In fact, after explaining that the RAF Typhoons were launched to investigate the suspicious activity, the article goes on reporting that “it is understood the Turkish jets took off from Incirlik air base in Turkey, in order to intercept the British planes,” and that “the British planes had returned to Akrotiri by time the Turkish jets arrived in northern Cyprus airspace.” The dispute over the Turkish occupied northern part of Cyprus is reflected by active

Delta's Honor Guard

 I had a link forwarded to me shot on the ramp at Atlanta. These fine Delta Airlines employee's honor fallen GI's as they are en route to their families. Words cannot express the emotion I felt while watching this video. As a retired SNCO  I'm overwelmed by the respect shown by these volunteers as these fallen GI's come home.
You like I my not agree with the way this and the previous useless administration have prosecuted wars that should have been won hands down. But in the end GI's are dying for us and should be respected.

My hats off to  Delta and these fine volunteers.
