Another Article That Sounds Like Parody

Jeff Bezos reveals construction of a massive clock inside a Texas mountain that will chime every day for 10,000 years as a ‘symbol for long-term thinking’
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, who has invested $42 million (£30 million) in the project, revealed the clip on social media.
It shows workmen installing the mechanism inside a hollowed out chamber in a West Texas mountain.
The clock, powered by Earth's thermal cycles, will continue to keep time over the millennia, marking time with a chime once a day rather than each hour. 
Its creators hope that this will encourage humanity to consider about their impact on the planet and act as a 'symbol for long-term thinking'.

I guess he's not as clever as I thought.  Will it chime loud enough for the whole world to hear?  Funniest of many hysterical comments at Instapundit:
Bezos is just a monocle and a fluffy white cat away from being a Bond supervillain. He's already bald and super wealthy, and is already at work on his lair built inside a mountain.

And the Lamestream Media Wonder We Do Not Take Them Seriously?

The presumed right to use and abuse something and then walk away to conquer something new is a hallmark of colonialism.

Urban Carry G2 Holster

The ads at the start of YouTube videos are usually a complete waste on me, but I saw an ad for the Urban Carry G2 Holster and I think it is on my last of things to buy.  A number of comments suggest that it is gimmicky.  What other methods are there for deep concealment?  IWBs still need a shirt or coat hiding the butt.  Ankle holsters are generally not comfortable, and are limited to very small pistols.  Pocket holsters are necessary for pocket pistols, but again limited on size of gun.

To My Representative (You Do the Same)

I understand the pressure you must be under from Democrats and many Republicans to pass some sort of gun ban after the recent tragedy in Florida.  It is important to keep the focus on the underlying problem: untreated mental illness.  The shooter displays two symptoms that indicate schizophrenia: depression and hallucinations (the voices telling him to commit this monstrous crime).

These tragedies were rare before the 1970s, when efforts to destroy the state mental hospital systems began to empty out the existing hospitals and make it difficult to involuntarily commit those with serious mental illnesses BEFORE they started murdering people.  Congressional hearings about mass murder should examine what states can do to provide the mental health care that they used to do, but do not do now.

Very Truly Yours,

Did Mueller Actually Present a Serious Case?

My friend Dave Hardy, a lawyer with substantial experience as both defense attorney and employee of the Swamp examines the indictment and concludes:

If the Independent Counsel's folks did their research, they must know that Count One is questionable at least, and the remaining counts look utterly invalid. Even if the Russians indicted booked flights back here to appear, and if a DC court were to conclude that it had jurisdiction over acts that occurred in Russia, the indictment would probably go down in flames. Which leaves only one explanation for it.
My guess is that Mueller wanted to show something for all the money and time and show that while Trump's people were at best pawns of Russian attempts to destroy us politically, but will soon close up shop.
