  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    Early voting in Virginia started today and I worked the first 4-hour shift this morning. In my little town with about 17,000 registered voters we had about 130 people come in and vote on my shift. By the end of...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    That's pretty much the system in Virginia. The main issue that I see is that the recent change in election laws here means that ballots that arrive as late as four days after the election are still valid. Could mean...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    Sure there's a current spike, but the real question is what will the status be in 3-4 month and I don't believe that that can be reliably predicted at this stage. LA-area hospitals are being absolutely slammed with ICU-worthy cases,...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    I think that you're dreaming if you think that Biden will win by a landslide. The estate of the economy will likely prove the decisive factor and, since the election is 4 months away, that really can't be predicted one...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    So what are y'all's thoughts on Boris' offer for UK residency permits for many Hong Kong Chinese? What does this do to the anti-immigrant types in the UK? Do they start frothing at the mouth?...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    Thanks for adding your experiences, Scott. I was by no means a shotgun guy back in the then, so I'm just presuming that it was much harder to find down-rated ammo to fit your grandparents weapons, not that it didn't...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    I rather figured that you were mainly basing your original comment off the bird-hunting transition from lead to steel or more exotic materials. I'm not a bird hunter myself, so I'm surprised to hear that people were complaining about inferior...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    Tweet! Flag on the statement; poster evidencing signs of Dunning-Kruger Syndrome! Lead-free ammunition is a thing nowadays, both for shotguns and rifles. Many states in the US have banned bird hunting with lead shot. Some older shotguns cannot handle the...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    To expand on my earlier comment. The "militia" is defined by Congress as divided into the organized militia and the unorganized militia. The former is comprised of the National Guard, Reserves, etc. The latter consists of every able-bodied male between...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    The unorganized militia in the US consists of all able-bodied men ages 17–45. So that won't fly....
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Sure and it will be interesting(!) seeing how that all plays out. One theory that I've seen lately on conservative blogs explaining why NYFC has had such a high concentration of deaths compared to LA is that the latter area...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Might I point out that the majority of the dead in the US don't come from states that voted for Trump in 2016?...
  • Commented on Yet another novel I will no longer write
    Maybe Virginia is different than the other states, but provisional votes get counted here. It's not that hard to verify registration status since that's tied to the Department of Motor Vehicles database. I'm an election judge here in my small...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Bravo, sir, bravo! You went many places that I did not expect with this one. I enjoyed it very much. One other typo for the paperback edition: it's US Park Police, not Parks Police. A slightly more major mistake is...
  • Commented on A brief, bitter quiz
    AFAIK the winter of 45-46 was very hard with lots of starvation in the fought-over areas, although I haven't heard much about Allied occupation forces doing a whole lot to help the starving civilians. Interesting story about the Royal Scots...
  • Commented on A brief, bitter quiz
    Nile, You are seriously confused about interwar and early war Soviet military history. The Red Army had embedded commissars for its entire existence before Barbarossa. And Stalin's Great Purges of the late 1930s further solidified his control over the Army....
