Fear Factor and Bariatric Surgery

Posted 09-14-2020 at 10:33 PM by Blondebaerde

Hmm. I'm not very good at the soft-sell/therapy, so here's the reality from my perspective: any fear felt about surgery and aftereffects paled against the near-certainty of an early death from morbid obesity. It just happened, over time, due to carelessness and over-indulgence. That's just my personality. I needed, and took, radical steps to solve it

VSG was 8/10/2020 in Tijuana Mexico by a top surgeon, possibly "the" top surgeon in the world for this procedure. At...

BLM = Antifa = Democratic Party = Open Insurrection

I'll assume from the above they have a suspect in the cold-blooded murder of a Trump supporter in Portland.

What I'm hearing so far from the other side is enemy propaganda, straight out of the Communist playbook: counter-intelligence...

Motorcycle Group Rides: Grrr....

Posted 07-10-2020 at 10:34 AM by Blondebaerde

Thirty three years of riding on the street, couple of those also on woods/trails, and three during when I was mostly OFF the street road racing a sportbike with AFM in California. Dozens of track days, track marshal in the late 1990s and early 2000s both here (WA State) and in CA. I've owned 13 bikes, though currently "none" for the first time since 1987.

....And I wouldn't go on a "group ride" with people I don't know well under any circumstances, that's where...

Confederate Flags and Racism: not on Fed Property, "But..."

Posted 06-12-2020 at 11:02 PM by Blondebaerde

Here's an interesting story I think was a tolerable compromise to the Confederate Flag in public places problem. I am also uneasy at the thought of Confederate monuments. That conflict was a hobby of mine, rather casual, since "Gettysburg" (masterpiece film, based on "the Killer Angels" by Jeff Shaara) came out in 1993. Their motives all came back to slavery, one way or another, their "peculiar institution". Slavery that backed a decrepit and inefficient economic...

Roadblocks: Suppressors and Short Barreled Rifles

Posted 06-01-2020 at 10:43 PM by Blondebaerde
Updated 06-05-2020 at 11:38 AM by Blondebaerde

Speaking from WA State: suppressors are legal, as are short barreled rifles (SBRs). Class III (full auto), not at this time.

I'm irritated the Feds and States (some of them) erect BS laws, fees, and waiting periods that are not necessary. My recent acquisition story is below. Better as a blog post, the topic is a rant (though interesting RE state of "government" these days stopping you from exercising rights). Here we go:

Last summer (2019) thought I'd...
