Easter Forecast from 1910

Here's a magazine cartoon from early in the progressive era, published in 1910.

It's entitled "Easter Forecast: Increasing Cloudiness", and  shows clouds of bunnies, chicks, eggs 'n such, some of which are partially obscuring an empty cross and a crown of thorns apparently embedded on an Eucharist wafer.

Pretty darn perceptive for something from 109 years ago.

What should farmers be "allowed" to do?

It appears Beto O'Rourke now claims to be an expert on farming.

And he calls for changes in farming practices to "fight climate change."

Vlad Lennin and his Soviet inner circle shared a similar arrogance, and under Soviet 5-year agricultural plans, millions died of starvation in the early years of the Soviet Union.

How many mags shipped to Californians?

An injunction is now in place.

But it appears California gun owners took full advantage of the window that lawfully allowed them to buy larger magazines for their firearm.

I checked around some firearms accessory sites Friday morning, many were "sold out" of magazines.

So I have to wonder how many thousands of new mags are now in the hands of Californians, or are on their way after orders were placed prior to Friday's deadline.

March was busy. April busier

Sporadic posting only.

Wrapping up the exit from metro Atlanta.

Lots of spring to-do stuff on the home in the mountains we bought last summer.

Looking at potentially putting another real estate project in motion.

Things should settle down later this month.

And yes, it wasn't just MSNBC that played fast and loose with the facts.

Radical socialists walk among us

Via Twitter:

Will Democrats give him what he wants?

UK's Sun reports the New Zealand mosque gunman published a manifesto: 

He boasted that he chose to use firearms so he could influence politics in the US. 
He wrote that he wanted to "create conflict between the two ideologies within the United States on the ownership of firearms in order to further the social, cultural, political and racial divide". 
And he ranted about his hopes that “this conflict over the 2nd amendment and the attempted removal of firearms rights will ultimately result in a civil war that will eventually balkanize the US along political, cultural and, most importantly, racial lines.”

Democrats keep outing themselves

Via Twitter:

Not sure where Democrats think they're going ahead of the 2020 election cycle, but becoming the party of infanticide, or the party that tries to sugar-coat and excuse anti-Semitic behavior within its congressional delegatioon, isn't anything near as appealing to voters as Barack Obama's dreamy "Hope and Change."

The Democrat path to unchecked power

Daniel Greenfield writes:

The Democrat political calculus of infanticide is so brutally grim that it makes the infant exposure of their spiritual pagan forebears seem almost humane. 
Population increases in states like New York are driven by immigration. First generation immigrants are the safest political bets for Democrats. As the generations pass, the immigrants become worse bets. 
The safest pathway to a permanent Democrat majority is abortion and open borders. 
Global Warming provides the perfect political cover for a policy of suppressing births and promoting migration. Abortion will reduce our carbon footprint even as we welcome in “climate refugees”.
