First Trout of the Year

Stocking your own rainbow trout can be a hoot!

They have thrived. In three months some of the fish have grown to almost a foot in length, and they are active and healthy. On quiet evenings after a windy day, the surface of the water is constantly being broken with jumping fish, some launching completely into the air.

Citizens! Arm Yourselves!

Speaking in an interview in the wake of a fortnight of terror attacks in Europe, the president of the Czech Republic has said the only solution to terrorism is removing the cause — deporting failed migrants — and has said in the meanwhile citizens need to be armed and ready to defend themselves and others.

Wind Farms: The Greatest Con of All Time

James Delingpole dishes up a real treat in a savage piece that hits hard at the horrifically greedy and corrupt interests that have shoved Wind Power down our throats:

How about that all you idyllic villages from Cornwall through Northamptonshire to the Fens and thence up north to the humpy Howgills and beyond who’ve had your views blighted, your peace disturbed, your property values trashed, your avian wildlife sliced and diced, your livestock frightened and your community cohesion disrupted by wind projects you never wanted, which you fought hard to prevent, but which were dumped on your doorstep anyway?

How does it feel to know that – having wasted all that time, money and heartache trying unsuccessfully to fight those greedy developers and selfish landowners through the biased planning process only to be overruled by some sinister Inspector Blight figure from the Planning Inspectorate – you’ve belatedly been vindicated by the wind industry itself?

It's Racism Except When It's Not

Coulter delivers up a wonderful dose of reality in her usual style:

Other than a few right-wingers, no one denounced now-sitting Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor for her “wise Latina” speech, in which she said “our gender and national origins may and will make a difference in our judging.”

But Trump is a “racist” for saying the same thing.

Why the Democratic West Will Have to Crush Islam

Czech politician Klára Samková recently issued a searing speech in which she detailed out in exquisite detail why Islam is, and will always be in conflict with Western Democracies ... and any democracy for that matter.

 Below are just a few snippets, it's best to read the whole thing found at The Reference Frame:
The second reason why Islam likes to hide behind the religious mask is its permanent, deliberate, and purposeful abuse of the Euro-American legal system and values that the civilizations built upon the Judeo-Christian foundations have converged to. There's nothing better or more efficient than to abuse the value system of one's enemy, especially when I don't share that system. And that's exactly how Islam behaves. It wants to be protected according to our tradition which it exploits in this way, while it is not willing to behave reciprocally. It relies on our traditions, it claims that the traditions are important, while behind the scenes, it is laughing at us and our system of values.

[...]

For Muslims, the road to doom is the only one because they are denied even the essence of the human naturalness, namely the evolution. Islam doesn't respect development, progress, and humanity. In its despair, it is attempting to take the rest of the mankind with it because from the Islamic viewpoint, the rest of the world is futile, useless, and unclean.

After reading the entire piece, it becomes even more clear why the peaceful majority of Muslims are Irrelevant.

The New Rifle Scope

I recently decided to replace the scope on my favorite hunting rifle. There are so many options available today that the task could have been tricky, but since I knew exactly what I needed from my new scope, the task of eliminating contenders was actually quite easy.

Here's how it turned out:

Game Changer Tech

It is not often on SLB that I use the phrase “game-changer.” Most things progress, if they progress at all, in small increments. This time, though, is one of those that deserves the phrase game-changer.

The innovation is the low-cost, light-weight but powerful battery developed by Nobel prize-winner Alan Heeger, PhD of the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB). The company is Biosolar
