Traveling in Alternate Timelines

Quote of the Day

The reason that liberals think that you’re a Nazi is because they live in a universe constructed solely of CNN stories. Their universe contains an entirely different timeline, like one of those science fiction shows in which somebody goes back in time and changes something important. In their universe, the BLM riots were completely peaceful. None of the people who ran BLM took the money and ran. George Floyd neither attacked the cops nor died of a self-administered overdose. Trump mocked a disabled person, told everybody to drink bleach, gave a fiery, Hitler-style speech in which he exhorted white-supremacist minions carrying Nazi flags to literally attack Congress, etc. You’re not going to break through to them, because they really believe this stuff, with the intensity of a religious fanatic who won’t change his mind even if he sees videos demonstrating that he’s wrong. Your best bet is to treat them like schizophrenics who have hallucinated an entirely different world into existence.

There are numerous other hallucinations and/or hoaxes they also believe. The human brain is an amazing thing.

The political right is not without its share of wacko beliefs, but the left certainly seems to go farther afield in their alternate timelines.

Prepare and respond appropriately.

Is it the Dementia Talking or is it a Lie?

Quote of the Day

Put a pistol on a brace, it turns into a gun — makes it more — you can have a higher-caliber weapon, higher-caliber bullet coming out of that gun.

Stupidity, Ignorance, and/or Evil on Display

Quote of the Day

We all know that because of the ammunition magazines that can be strapped on to so many pistols that these become automatic weapons similar to AK-47s. Pistols with stabilizing braces have a reputation in this modern America, though they have been formally forbidden and prohibited, regulated for almost 90 years.

These are the type of people making the law to govern our country.

With people this stupid, ignorant, and/or evil at the top we don’t need enemies. We need their delegated powers stripped down asymptotically close to zero.

The only good thing to come out of anti-gun legislation is their votes put their character on public display.

A Difference Without a Difference

That’s where we seem to fall down as a society. Not that we take constitutional rights away from people, but rather that we be more careful about who it is that we allow to exercise those rights in our society.

Another Anti-Gunner With No Concept of Numbers

Quote of the Day

Order a door to door confiscation of firearms and we will start collecting them, if force is needed then we WILL use it.

Johnathan @theprism89
Posted on X May 7, 2023

Apparently Johnathan hasn’t looked at the numbers, or probably more likely he doesn’t understand numbers. And, of course, the “we” he is talking about doesn’t include him stacking up to enter any houses.

Also, there won’t be a problem with a hostile government confiscating the arms of U.S. citizens. The government agents tasked to do the collecting will have the ammunition being freely offered. And since civilians recreationally consume ammunition at about the same rate as the U.S. military consumed it during WWII, the numbers indicate Johnny is going to be disappointed in the outcome.

Anti-gun Gibberish

Quote of the Day

Let’s inhibit criminal behavior a little bit by assigning the code to gun and ammunition stores so that when someone has bad intent when buying a weapon, there’s an alert in place that stops that from happening,

This is the ravings of a lunatic. I cannot even imagine a delusion in which this sentence is internally consistent.

Yet, these people are winning legislative battles. What does that tell you about the politicians who pass the laws like what this lunatic is praising? It tells us they are evil and people like Munoz are their useful idiots.

Anti-Gunners Crazy Beliefs

Quote of the Day

Anti-gunners believe all kinds of crazy things which aren’t true. Those crazy beliefs do tend to have the common denominator of bolstering their sense of moral supremacy though.

gunsandrockets @GunsAndRockets1
Posted on X January 10, 2024

Part of their problem is they do not have a process for determining truth from falsity (Peterson Syndrome). They have a set of beliefs based on what they feel. If feelings do not match reality that does not matter. Their feelings, and therefore beliefs, remain intact.

Is it a Lie? Or is it Ignorance?

Quote of the Day

What’s the efficacy of banning these magazine clips? I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those know they’re going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these ‘high capacity’ magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available.

Diana DeGette
U.S. Representative to Congress from Colorado

Is it a lie? Or is it profound ignorance? I could go either way on it. I’m certain many people would believe her. And that false belief will increase the likelihood of passing magazine bans.


Just keep in mind that people like her are making the laws you will be prosecuted with.

Prepare and respond appropriately.

Not Smart Enough To Create a Plausible Lie

Quote of the Day

Only the right wing gun nut teachers carry guns,a lot of them so t and flat out refuse to.These undervalued/ underpaid teachers should be able to go into their schools knowing a shooter armed with an semi automatic weapon will not be able to enter because they weapons are illegal

Crap for brains. Frequently one can make a case for lying. But, in this case, I don’t think they are smart enough to create a plausible lie.

It Could be Worse. They Could Have Invoked Markley’s Law

Quote of the Day

Notable strong law states like Illinois and Maryland remain plagued with high gun violence in their biggest cities—in large part because they’re targeted by traffickers. Indeed an outsized share of likely trafficked crime guns recovered in Illinois begin their journey in states with weak laws. And Virginia, which had weak gun purchase laws until 2020, has long been the top supplier of crime guns into Maryland. At the other end of the scale, states like New Hampshire, Vermont, and Rhode Island have unusually low gun death rates compared with their somewhat weaker policies, in part because they are buffered by robust laws among other states in the region.

Everytown Research & Policy

Everytown Gun Law Rankings

If guns are freely available in one state how do they imagine restrictions, or even complete bans, in an adjacent state will reduce the criminals using guns the free state?

Who do they think will believe such crap? Being as generous as possible, this is crazy talk. But are they really crazy? The more likely explanation is this is the best deliberate lie they could come up with. Lies and deception it’s what they do.


I can think of less believable lies, but not by much. They could have invoked Markley’s Law to explain the differences.

Knifes and Swords are Okay, Guns are Yucky

Quote of the Day

If Americans where brave enough they could give up all their guns and use their bodies as weapons, they could learn martial arts, self defense, knives attacks and even fight with swords to “defend” themselves but they are too fat and lazy to do something brave. A bunch of fearful cowards. If you rely in a gun to be “secure” you have a big, big problem and try to use a stupid logic to justify guns is not going to solve it.

Gun Control NOW

As I read things like this I wonder if when they get the words out and then read their own delusions, do they realize it is crazy talk and publish it anyway? Or do they actually think it is something profound and is enlightenment for the dimwitted masses?

Another hypothesis I have about this sort of thing, and it is particularly obvious here, is the phrase “stupid logic”. This could be interpreted at least two different ways. One is that they believe gun rights advocates use faulty logic. And the other is that logic as a means of determining proper courses of action is stupid. There are many people who abhor reason. I suspect the great mass of gun control advocates are of this opinion and idly-raven17 is one of those.

Natural Stupidity

Quote of the Day

I’m supposed to be worried about Artificial Intelligence destroying us all, but the fact is our Natural Stupidity is more than adequate for the job.

Roberta X
September 21, 2023
Threat Spectrum

Case in point:

The latest round of state test results is raising alarm in Baltimore City Schools. Project Baltimore found that 40% of Baltimore City high schools, where the state exam was given, did not have any students score proficient in math. Not one student.

But that’s not the only alarming finding we made. In those 13 high schools, 1,736 students took the test, and 1,295 students, or 74.5%, scored a one out of four. One is the lowest level, meaning those students were not even close to proficient.

I don’t know if the demonstrated natural stupidity is on the part of the students, teachers, or (or we should embrace the power of “and”?) administrators. But this is scary stuff. From just one city there are now thousands (this has been going on for several years) of young adults with near zero math ability. These sort of people have been diffused into society for decades years now.

As a Heinlein character famously said:

Anyone who cannot cope with mathematics is not fully human.  At best he is a tolerable subhuman who has learned to wear shoes, bathe, and not make messes in the house.

A case can be made that our country, if not the whole world, is on a superhighway to Idiocracy. An alternate hypothesis is that there will be a great collapse, a massive die off, and those who survive will be “the best and brightest” and the human race will be the better for it.

I don’t know which scenario is more likely. But I am in agreement with Roberta when she said natural stupidity is more than adequate to destroy us all.

I want an underground bunker in Idaho as my observation post.

Brainwashing is Strong

Small Arms are Toys so Ban Them

Quote of the Day

Are you honestly trying to argue you’re going to fight the ARMY (an actual well-regulated militia) with your little small-penis-overcompensation toys?

Tweeted on April 3, 2023

It’s not only another Markley’s Law Monday, it is another science denier!

This is an interesting assertion. Our small arms, such as AR-15s, are “toys”. So, this guy wants them highly restricted and/or banned. If they are mere toys, then what is the point of banning them?

Don’t try to debate people like this. You can’t have a battle of wits with an unarmed person.

Manage Your Expectations to be Consistent With Reality

Quote of the Day

For years, the ATF allowed unrestricted use of the braces, invented for use by handicapped target shooters, but under Biden moved to ban or regulate them. The White House claimed they are “weapons of war” though only two “mass shootings” have involved the guns, which are typically used for target shooting and hunting.

An estimated 3 million to 20 million are in use, and making the changes could cost owners a total of some $2 billion over 10 years, said the court.

The ATF rule kicked in this year and the agency gave owners a few months to comply and skip the tax. But just about 250,000 decided to register their guns, a far worse compliance rate than expected.

Paul Bedard
August 2, 2023

So, between 1% and 8% registered their guns. Whoever expected more than that is severely out of touch with reality. That is typical in the U.S. and Canada, and probably elsewhere as well.

Gifted People

Quote of the Day

Most people live in an inner reality that is only very tenuously related to actual reality. To be capable of achieving that level of self-delusion must be nice. We’re all capable of it to a degree… but some people are very gifted.

Today I was to a coworker on almost this same topic. Smart people can be very convincing about their delusions.

Do you want to break through the delusion or at least determine for yourself if they are delusional or perhaps more closely in touch with reality than you?

Ask this question of both them and yourself, “What is the process by which you determine truth from falsity?” Then compare the two processes as applied to your current situation.
