    honesty Yup, some people can’t handle the truth! My Favorite Animal Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, "Fried chicken." She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, because everyone else laughed. My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal. I told my dad what happened and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA He said they love animals very much. I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office. I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again. The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was. I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, so I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken. She sent me back to the principal's office. He laughed, and told me not to do it again. I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn’t like it when I am. Today, my teacher asked me to tell her what famous military person I admired most. I told her, "Colonel Sanders." Guess where the heck I am now…

    "Shot spotter", is the actual system used, and some municipalities have indeed mounted them on municipality owned cell towers. However, the algorithms used can be seriously screwed up by the cell signals as well. So, few cell towers are actually used, power line poles(wooden ones) are the preferred installation points. Many municipalities will list they use Shot Spotter on their law enforcement agency's website, very easy to verify as well. It takes more than a few to make them effective.

    Awareness is first, surprise is due to ignorance of your surroundings. people and events cannot surprise you if you keep your head on a swivel. I do not let people crowd me in a line where I use my bank card I keep my eyes open and do not let people come up behind me I use glass shadows and try to keep and an oblique angle to doors windows or openings I do not answer a door or phone that is not mine or I know whats on the other side before. Mindset is controlled paranoia or condition yellow no one with a hoodie is allowed in my space without a good eyeballin' carrying of objects or bags news papers at night especially so. Face demeanor means nothing smiling or feigned preoccupation with a phone counting change reading a map or letter before I exit or enter a vehicle or door I try to be watchful of what is going on around me. A door is not just an exit sometimes it's a trap many fires have many people stacked up on the door that opened inward. Do not believe what you hear unless you can validate it by human sources, more than one is best, sometimes it is just by observation. If you look at everyone around you as dead a potential hostage, witness or stupid you have a better chance than if you think you have a rescue nearby,In fact look at all of them to run like blind rats. or just stand there like a cigar store Indian IE Waco Texas luby's mass shooting. If you have never been in a life or death struggle with beasts, mechanical catastrophe, man or nature chances are your at a severe disadvantage mindset is partially experience and just because people have experience does not mean they have not gained a phobia to the point of panic or Iron will. Doubt is a killer Fukashima the tsunami warnings blared and people did not increase their pace or look to the sea or jumped out of vehicles that could have outrun (possibly) the waves and ran. Numerous situations where people had time heard or saw a warning sign and ignored it and never forget playing possum is not outside the rules nor is fainting women fight when being taken and depending on distance or time dead weight is hard to move so fall down play dead grab your left chest and hope to win an Oscar. Running an be an option small fires cause explosions Bear attacks running is not advised go for the eyes is always a plan. your never under gunned just not behind a sufficient barrier or best tactical position. If you can maintain calm while all about you are loosing theirs you obviously do not perceive the problem.....YET, Now can you devise a plan of action fast enough to survive. Sometimes reacting is better than thinking. The problem is you will not know until the situation has been resolved. Willingness are you willing to make a leap of faith take a chance that is less than one in a hundred and face certain death for it and do it again and again because that is the unknown factor the breaking point when the will or confidence fails you. and death is 100% there are NO survivors in this world no one lives forever records are always being broken death takes the innocent guilty fast slow old and young it has 0 failure rate eventually it will get you. I know people that sh*t in a colostomy bag piss through a catheter missing limbs eyes in nut wards drunkards junkies or old and so feeble can barley walk but the days of their youth or before their incident even the devil stepped aside some and all will be held down by a gravestone eventually. some calamities lasted hundreds of years bad leaders revolt nature civil war you can survive and live in hell till you die, death is not the worst thing that can happen to you - you could out live your whole family children and all your friends. Last you can make all the right decisions and die anyway because the outcome had already been calculated by God chance physics or pure bad Juju. and can you live with your decisions ?

    welcome to the forum... 1st rule of gun safety, a gun is always loaded 2nd rule, don't point it at anything your not willing to destory 3rd rule, make sure of your target and whats behind it 4th rule, keep your finger off the trigger until your sites are on the target... a nice battery of firearms is: a rifle in 223 or 308 a deer rifle like a 30-30 a 22 rifle for small game and varmits a pistol in your choice of caliber and a 12 gauge shotgun...

    I would get some physical silver, how much should one get. Depends how deep are your pockets. Average in a SHTF 20 ounces per person, should be fine. Cash per person short term, couple hundred in small bills, 1,5 & 10's . What I think would be most valuable is water filteration system, food, seeds Medications & something you can use for self defence.

    found a copy of C.E. Harris "the load" I would cut paste and print this as it is getting hard to find. CAST BULLET LOADS FOR MILITARY RIFLES Cast bullets can make shooting that surplus rifle easy and economical. And basic data works for many different guns. BY C.E. Harris Cast bullet loads usually give a more useful zero at practical field ranges with military battle sights than do full power loads. Nothing is more frustrating than a military rifle that shoots a foot high at 100 yards with surplus ammo when the sight is as low as it will go! Do not use inert fillers (Dacron or kapok) to take up excess empty space in the case. This was once common practice, but it raises chamber pressure and under certain conditions contributes to chamber ringing. If a particular load will not work well without a filler, the powder is not suitable for those conditions of loading. Four load classifications from Mattern (1932) cover all uses for the cast bullet military rifle. I worked up equivalent charges to obtain the desired velocity ranges with modern powders, which provide a sound basis for loading cast bullets in any post-1898 military rifle from 7mm to 8mm: 1. 125 grain plain based "small game/gallery" 900-1000 f.p.s., 5 grains of Bullseye or equivalent. 2. 150 grain plain based "100-yard target/small game", 1050-1250 f.p.s., 7 grains of Bullseye or equivalent. 3. 170-180 grain gas checked "200 yard target", 1500-1600 f.p.s., 16 grains of Hercules #2400 or equivalent. 4. 180-200 grain gas-checked "deer/600 yard target", 1750-1850 f.p.s., 26 grains of RL-7 or equivalent. None of these loads are maximum when used in full-sized rifle cases such as the 30-40 Krag, .303 British, 7.65 Argentine, 7.7 Jap, 7.62x54R Russian , or 30-06. They can be used as basic load data in most modern military rifles of 7mm or larger, with a standard weight cast bullet for the caliber, such as 140-170 grains in the 7x57, 150-180 grains in the .30 calibers, and 150-190 grains in the 8mm. For bores smaller than 7mm, consult published data. The Small Game or Gallery" Load The 110-115 grain bullets intended for the .30 carbine and .32-20 Winchester, such as the Lyman #3118, #311008, #311359, or #311316 are not as accurate as heavier ones like the #311291. There isn't a readily available .30 caliber cast small game bullet of the proper 125-130 grain weight. LBT makes a 130 grain flat-nosed gas-check bullet for the .32 H&R Magnum which is ideal for this purpose. I recommend it highly, particularly if you own a .32 revolver. The "100 Yard Target and Small Game" Load I use Mattern's plain-based "100 yard target load" to use up my minor visual defect culls for offhand and rapid-fire 100 yard practice. I substitute my usual gas-checked bullets, but without the gas-check. I started doing this in 1963 with the Lyman #311291. Today I use the Lee .312-155-2R, or the similar tumble-lubed design TL.312-160-2R. Most of my rifle shooting is done with these two basic designs. Bullets I intend for plain based loads are blunted using a flat-nosed top punch in my lubricator, providing a 1/8" flat which makes them more effective on small game and clearly distinguishes them from my heavier gas-checked loads. This makes more sense to me than casting different bullets. Bullet preparation is easy. I visually inspect each run of bullets and throw those with gross defects into the scrap box for remelting. Bullets with minor visual defects are tumble-lubed in Lee Liquid Alox without sizing, and are used for plain base plinkers. Bullets which are visually perfect are weighed and sorted into groups of +/- 0.5 grain for use in 200 yard matches. Gas checks are pressed onto bullet bases by hand prior to running into the lubricator-sizer. For gas-check bullets loaded without the gas- checks, for cases like the .303 British, 7.62 NATO, 7.62x54R Russian and 30-06, I use 6-7 grains of almost any fast burning powder. These include, but are not limited to Bullseye, WW231, SR-7625, Green Dot, Red Dot or 700-X. I have also had fine results with 8 to 9 grains of medium rate burning pistol or shotgun powders, such as Unique, PB, Herco, or SR-4756 in any case of .303 British or larger. In the 7.62x39 case, use no more than 4 grains of the fast burning powders mentioned or 5 grains of the shotgun powders. Theses make accurate 50 yard small game loads which let you operate the action manually and save your precious cases. These plinkers are more accurate than you can hold. Repeated loading of rimless cases with very mild loads results in the primer blast shoving the shoulder back, unless flash holes are enlarged with a No. 39 drill bit to 0.099" diameter. Cases which are so modified must never be used with full powered loads! Always identify cases which are so modified by filing a deep groove across the rim and labeling them clearly to prevent their inadvertent use. For this reason on I prefer to do my plain based practice shooting in rimmed cases like the 30-30, 30-40 Krag, 303 British and 7.62x54R which maintain positive headspace on the rim and are not subject to this limitation. The Harris "Subsonic Target" Compromise Mattern liked a velocity of around 1250 f.p.s. for his 100 yard target load because this was common with the lead bullet .32-40 target rifles of his era. I have found grouping is best with non gas- checked bullets in military rifles at lower velocities approaching match grade .22 long rifle ammunition. I use my "Subsonic Target" load at around 1050-1100 f.p.s. to replace both Mattern's "small game" and "100 yard target" loads, though I have lumped it with the latter since it really serves the same purpose. It's report is only a modest "pop" rather than a "crack". If elongated bullet holes and enlarged groups indicate marginal bullet stability, increase the charge no more than a full grain from the minimum recommended, if needed to get consistent accuracy. If this doesn't work, try a bullet which is more blunt and short for its weight because it will be more easily stabilized. If this doesn't do the trick, you must change to a gas-checked bullet and a heavier load. The Workhorse Load - Mattern's "200 yard Target" My favorite load is the most accurate. Mattern's so-called "200 yard target load." I expect 10 shot groups at 200 yards, firing prone rapid with sling to average 4-5". I shoot high Sharpshooter, low Expert scores across the course with an issue 03A3 or M1917, shooting in a cloth coat, using may cast bullet loads. The power of this load approximates the 32-40, inadequate for deer by today's standards. Mattern's "200 yard target load" is easy to assemble. Because it is a mild load, soft scrap alloys usually give better accuracy than harder ones, such as linotype. Local military collector-shooters have standardized on 16 grains of #2400 as the "universal" prescription. It gives around 1500 f.p.s. with a 150-180 grain cast bullet in almost any military caliber. We use 16 grains of #2400 as our reference standard, just as high power competitors use 168 Sierra Match Kings and 4895. The only common military rifle cartridge in which 16 grains of #2400 provides a maximum load, and which must not be exceeded, is in the tiny 7.63x39mm case. Most SKS rifles will function reliably with charges of #2400 as light as 14 grains with the Lee 312-155-2R at around 1500 f.p.s. I designed this bullet especially for the 7.62x39, but it works very well as a light bullet in any .30 or .303 caliber rifle. Sixteen Grains of #2400 is the Universal Load The same 16 grain charge of #2400 is universal for all calibers as a starting load. It is mild and accurate in any larger military case from a 30-40 Krag or .303 British up through a 30-06 or 7.9x57, with standard weight bullets of suitable diameter for the caliber. This is my recommendation for anybody trying cast bullets loads for the first time in a military rifle without prior load development. I say this because #2400 is not "position sensitive", requires no fiber fillers to ensure uniform ignition, and actually groups better when you stripper-clip load the rifle and bang them off, rather than tipping the muzzle up to position the powder charge. Similar ballistics can be obtained with other powders in any case from 7.62x39 to 30-06 size. If you don't have Hercules #2400, you can freely substitute 17 grains of IMR or H4227, 18 grains of 4198, 21 grains of Reloder 7, 24 grains of IMR 3031, or 25.5 grains of 4895 for comparable results. However, these other powders may give some vertical stringing in cases larger than the 7.62x39 unless the charge is positioned against the primer by tipping the muzzle up before firing. Hercules #2400 does not require this precaution. Don't ask me why. Hercules #2400 usually gives tight clusters only within a narrow range of charge weights within a grain or so, and the "universal" 16 grain load is almost always the best. Believe me, we have spent a lot of time trying to improve on this, and you can take our word for it. The beauty of the "200 yard target load" at about 1500 f.p.s. is that it can be assembled from bullets cast from the cheapest, inexpensive scrap alloy, and fired all day without having to clean the bore. It always works. Leading is never a problem. Once a uniform bore condition is established, the rifle behaves like a .22 match rifle, perhaps needing a warming shot or two if it has cooled, but otherwise being remarkably consistent. The only thing I do after a day's shooting with this load is to swab the bore with a couple of wet patches of GI bore cleaner or Hoppe's, and let it soak until the next match. I then follow with three dry patches prior to firing. It takes only about three foulers to get the 03A3 to settle into tight little clusters again. "Deer and Long Range Target Load" Mattern's "deer and 600 yard target load" can be assembled in cases of 30-40 Krag capacity or larger up to 30-06 using 18-21 grains of #2400 or 4227, 22-25 grains of 4198, 25-28 grains of RL-7 or 27-30 grains of 4895, which give from 1700-1800 f.p.s., depending on the case size. These charges must not be used in cases smaller than the 303 British without cross checking against published data! The minimum charge should always be used initially, and the charge adjusted within the specified range only as necessary to get best grouping. Popular folklore suggests a barrel must be near perfect for good results with cast bullets, but this is mostly bunk, though you may have to be persistent. I have a rusty-bored Finnish M28/30 which I have shot extensively, in making direct comparisons with the same batches of loads on the same day with a mint M28 and there was no difference. The secret in getting a worn bore to shoot acceptably is to remove all prior fouling and corrosion. Then you must continue to clean the bore "thoroughly and often" until it maintains a consistent bore condition over the long term. You must also keep cast bullet loads under 1800 f.p.s. for hunting and under 1600 f.p.s. for target work. A cleaned and restored bore will usually give good accuracy with cast bullet loads if the bullet fits the chamber throat properly, is well lubricated and the velocities are kept below 1800 f.p.s. The distinction between throat diameter and groove diameter in determining proper bullet size is important. If you are unable to determine throat diameter from a chamber cast, a rule of thumb is to size bullets .002" over groove diameter, such as .310" for a 30-06, .312" for a 7.63x54R and .314" for a .303 British. "Oversized 30's", like the .303 British, 7.7 Jap, 7.65 Argentine, and 7.62x39 Russian frequently give poor accuracy with .30 caliber cast bullets designed for U.S. barrels having .300 bore and .308 groove dimensions. This is because the part of the bullet ahead of the driving bands receives no guidance from the lands in barrel s of larger bore diameter. The quick rule of thumb to checking proper fit of the forepart is to insert the bullet, nose first, into the muzzle. If it enters clear up to the front driving band without being noticeably engraved, accuracy will seldom be satisfactory. The forepart is not too large if loaded rounds can be chambered with only slight resistance, the bullet does not telescope back into the case, or stick in the throat when extracted without firing. A properly fitting cast bullet should engrave the forepart positively with the lands, and be no more than .001" under chamber throat diameter on the driving bands. Cast bullets with a tapered forepart at least .002" over bore diameter give the best results. Many pre-WWII Russian rifles of US make, and later Finnish reworks, particularly those with Swiss barrels by the firm SIG, have very snug chamber necks and cannot be used with bullets over .311" diameter unless case necks are reamed or outside turned to .011" wall thickness to provide safe clearance. Bullets with a large forepart, like the Lee 312-155-2R or Lyman #314299 work best with the 7.62x54R because the forcing cones are large and gradual. Standard .30 caliber gas-checks are correct. Finnish 7.62x54R, Russian 7.62x39 and 7.65 Argentine barrels are smaller than Russian 7.62x54R, Chinese 7.62x39, Jap 7.7 or .303 British barrels, and usually have standard .300" bore diameter. (Finnish barrels occasionally are as small as .298") and groove diameters of .310 -.3115". In getting the best grouping with iron sighted military rifles, eyesight is the limiting factor. Anybody over age 40 who shoots iron sights should equip himself with a "Farr-Sight" from Gil Hebard or Brownell's. This adjustable aperture for your eyeglass frame was intended for indoor pistol shooters, but it helps my iron sight rifle shooting, and adds about 5 points to my score! So now you have enough fundamentals to get started. If you want to have fun, give that old military rifle a try. You'll never know the fun you've been missing until you try it!

    I've been thinking about casting some 9mm lead bullets as well this weekend. Purchased a new Lee 124grain molds that need a work out. Have about 15lbs of lead sitting next to my Lee Pro 4-20 melter that need my attention. Ive only casted 38, 44, & 45 pistol bullets & 7/8 ounce 12 guage slugs in the past. As for rifle bullets, I'll stick with FMJ projectiles & nothing else.

    today sucks I am casting buckshot and this is not the time of year for doing this ! Its hot barley a breeze and I got 15 more pounds in the pot already dropped 20 pounds this AM I hope to get it done by 1 or 2 pm in right now for some refreshment and a cool down the handles on my molds are SMOKIN' Casting is only the first step then you have to cut them apart I cast hard shot so it is about 12 to 15 BNH and pure lead is 4.3 to 5 so this stuff does not deform as easily and makes for better patterns if you pattern to check IMHO. I only cast a few sizes #1 #4 and 00 buck and punkin' ball runs about 690 grn and some lee slugs now and again. well time to go drops some more it ain't gonna get done sitting here.

    I pray that as soon as the people of Canada are able that they vote him out by a landslide, Canada is our friend I believe it very much I know that friends sometimes make mistakes and do not hold that against them but this mistake needs to be remedied or else the North American way of life will be over. It is in the back of my mind that we would all look like India if not for basic tenement to Christian values It still blows my mind that WE cannot see the differences between Christian values that built roads bridges hospitals schools and all the other fantastic things like running water sewer electricity and all the spare time we have over any nation it is too bad that the entertainment industry fails to absorb that it is because of their being born into a free society that gave them the ability to be famous and live well I do not deny it took hard work but why would they want to tear us down and reject what help make them is beyond me. Canada just like America is so blessed over any other region of the world if Mexico and the rest of south America could get a handle of this corruption problem as we all have it and it has gone to far that it has damaged all our nations to the verge of destruction. I also fear for England I am hoping that the Brexit will be successful but there are powers that would rather destroy it than allow it to live as a free independent nation. California is the example of power and foolishness gone awry what bothers me is the ones that are leaving are exporting their brand of foolishness as they do not see that their ways are what made a great place into a socialist pest hole they voted in Jerry Brown stay and live with their mistake and correct it but no like all socialist vermin after they crap on and eat everything up they leave and do the same elsewhere. My advice is if someone comes to your town meeting and states thats we did it in California Washington Oregon or any of the eastern states body surf them out of the building and do exactly opposite of what they proposed. because you can't explain it to them in any way that will bring them to their senses or at least in my experience.

    I have only lived a fraction of that time and most of my friends have died what is live without "true" friends what is life without "true" love real people not fake fair weather friends. what is life if you never cared about anyone but yourself or not place yourself in danger for another ? or stand up for what is right no matter what the consequences. if I could live forever and never taste the love of Christ r true friendship or experiences I have had that would not be life but fear unnameable without form or even tangible a constant fear of everything as if they can splice and dice you for hundreds of years what change might come a new allergy to shrimp or peanuts could kill you allergic to the sun water burns your flesh it is a disease very rare but playing with the genome who the hell knows what hellish nightmare could come to the forefront. like a bad plastic surgery many people have had horrible scars infections and complications that killed them or crippled them. Many diseases are dormant in the body until a surgery or accident causes them to surface some drugs or combinations of drugs causes leukemia and a hundred other diseases blood transfusions cause problems by the grace of God all the accidents injuries and treatments stitches and holes even a transfusion I have not "so far" had any ill effects other than the normal scars limitations of movement minor percentages but time and as always I am hard on equipment things will wear out or I will die and that is the way it should be "NATURAL" everyone is all into NATURAL until it comes to death and dying then they get all spooky willing to kill fetuses unborn dice them up and sell the parts oh hell no we cannot est shampoo on animals ut we can murder a child and call it a womans right to her own reproductive wants instead of taking the pill screw it just wing it till your showing then kill it sounds so tender loving and logical IF YOUR A FRIGGIN" NAZI. In order to insure that we have a gene pool that is viable that means we will have to terminate all imperfect embryos or sterilize those that could corrupt the genome by unsanctioned breeding Eugenics it is like whack a mole knock it down and it comes back with a new look a new name and the same game. Margret Sanger IMHO was a Nazi she wanted abortion clinics near areas of social decline or areas where the populations was of color Hispanics Indians blacks etc. and it is very strange how women bought into this right to kill their own progeny some have actually killed off their family line when sex is more important than life when there are ways to prevent pregnancy then this is like having a bald tire and driving like a maniac a wrong turn at the wrong time and you'll die and people have died from complications of abortion some have become sterile others have had physiological breakdowns depression long term but the notion that this is directly associated with the abortion itself is falsified because that would destroy the narrative that it is only tissue and is not a sentient being who's soul belongs to God and is his not an accident ! to me it is like bashing your car on the left fender and refusing to accept it is a vision problem because glasses make you look not sexy so you deny the problem until you commit vehicular homicide and even then you reject your at fault and they jumped in front of you . I have a bit of experience with mutual consent and I have been sober or less than sober but I never recall falling and getting all tangled up to the point of impregnating someone at some point decisions had to be made to remove clothing and some preliminaries and even rules were outlined not to mention driving a vehicle to the place of said indiscretion navigating stairs or operating lifts / elevators hailing a cab signing a hotel register and a host of other obstacles like if the stays are in the front back or if if one is even in play then there were garters hosiery belts ties coats and starting the fireplace without burning off your eyebrows also sometimes there was a language barrier and or room mates cramped spaces like a plane restroom back of a vehicle tent or under water, on a train boat, bus trampoline sports cars with bucket seats and console shift pickup trucks with bench seats were better caravans or RV's much better hammocks are a real test of ones balance washateria or a blowup pool with mineral oil anyway I recall it took more planning than the D day invasion or off track betting with a bookie. and minor injuries like scratches rug burns slips and falls minor burns from unfamiliar shower devices and between manage to order room service or make toast the old fashioned way over the grate --------- needless to say none of that is less physical than taking a pill or fitting a parachute on your "cod piece" although I did have a few incidents of allergies to latex so my training taught me to have lamb skin backup. SOOOOOO this taught me that it is a failure to plan or an attempt to entrap and maybe over active hormones but children are people too so if your not willing to murder someone to have sex you should think it through. 20 to 5o bucks a month a parachute a buck or two or so or an abortion from the cost of getting there up to a few thousand and that does not include any complications or medications. marriage license is a professional drivers license it does not mean your any good but the police do not give you a ticket for bad driving on a closed track. It does not mean there won't be accidents but the drivers agree to deal with the damages deciding to change tracks is usually due to failing to express expectations of responsibilities before the race and agreeing to all rules before the race there are always those that never plan to follow rules and complications follows so maturity a reasonable time to experience the others habits and abilities as well as deficits should be paramount to further association. Otherwise to drivers on the same course can have a wreck and results in pain and blame for a lifetime. Division and hate start in the home either you teach your children the facts of life dangers of associations with unethical individuals or lazy angry people or you will reap what you sow the children of the "RESISTANCE" are latch key or single parent and or drug alcohol fueled people that have been raised that hollywood is real and we do not have to work for our living when we can scam money from a baby by flatbaking need more money have another baby or welfare food stamps like the surfer in California blame your parents for all your addictions yoyo in and out of rehabs curse God you were not born rich instead of stupid and lazy or join a cult so you do not have to think for yourself or be responsible for your actions scam people hack lie steal cheat shoot angels and play the system there is no right or wrong if your raised by selfish pigs and our educations system tells you we come from apes and a fetus is just a lump of flesh then your just an accident -- aren't you ! OR you can accept a God that loves you pick yourself up and keep trying to do the right thing and ask God for help and direction and regardless of the commotion and fear around you you can be at peace with your life knowing it is not haunting you it's forgiven and gone everyday is a new chance to move forward and not look back because your no longer the OLD self your a new creature in Christ not a looser not a drag or without merit your a Child of God and important to him and he has a plan for you no matter if your young old cripple sick or just a little nuts you will be a work in progress like clay molded and formed into a real individual not a clone or a failure but an original one and only that God calls his own -- King James Bible And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

    I like watching L. A. Marzuli on youtube he expresses an opinion about the end of the age and when will we know and it is told to us it will be like the days of Noah. So I think we need to figure out hat it was like there was rampant sexual immorality and in the book of Genesis it tals about there were giants in those days and there are arguments that they were not "real" giants but we have thousands of articles news papers from up to a couple hundred years ago that people 9 to 12 foot tall not basketball players but fully formed robust framed people and if estimates are correct could lift 500 to 1000 pounds easily. so who built all the giant stone monuments ? it was not 5 foot tall men and it was not paeleo man and these buildings were built before the flood man has never been a simpering fool we did not come from apes that is proven by thousands of buildings and pyramids thousands of them in India South America on the tallest mountains and one has been found off of Cuba under 2,000 foot of water. There was a flood there may have been Pangaea or a single continent and Atlantis but all that broke up as the waters of the deep broke through under tons of pressure spewing skyward into the upper atmosphere coming down as hail ice and snow and causing the ice age the big lie is science is baffled at everything and one find only makes for more questions not real answers the human genome is fraught with problems as many appear to have no meaning except as a spacer so screwing around when you are not able to know every piece is like getting a piece of IKEA furniture with no box and you do not know if there are missing parts they forget to tell you that all the genetic experiments have a short life span like dolly the sheep --- remember what they really want to do is create chimeras half human half animal for organ transplants they have already done this but the failure of science to see that this will create a disease or pandemic that will cross the human animal barrier and this could be fish fowl or any other critter blows my mind how truly stupid they are. we share as much genetic code with rats almost as much as monkeys and clams 40% replications leads to inferior replicates nothing is as perfect as the original and abnormalities are inbred into EVERY creature so at what point will they break the chain that hold fast all the life on this planet as in everything unto it's kind cats breed cats dogs dogs etc. many of the spliced creatures have a very different disposition to their original some ae more violent deadly some are passive many cannot breed as they are infertile and the list goes on if the human gene was unwound it would reach to the moon and EVERY CELL has the same gene in your body but it only makes ONE portion liver cells cannot make brain cells in some fantastic accident I can see where an azzhole cell is wrongly spliced and we end up with clone of Al Gore IMO. Isaiah 41:10 NKJV 10 Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ Matthew 10:28 King James Version (KJV) 28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. So my takeaway is live or dead I am a winner Jesus overcame death hell and the grave so "WE" might have everlasting life but you have to accept it take it live it none of us are perfect just forgiven. "Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem" (Luke 24:47). The "GOOD NEWS" is Jesus saves and not by works we cannot earn or bribe our way into his glory Jesus paid it once and for "ALL" who believe in and follow HIM, Christ Jesus. Even if this is not the end of the age and many years are to come it makes no difference to me as everyone "WILL" die even if science could prolong life an accident like a fire of murder and you body is missing you life will end and it is not coming back ! Hebrews 9:27 King James Version (KJV) 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: No reincarnation coming back as a bug or a cow John 5:28, 29 5:28 “Do not be amazed at this, because a time is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice 29 and will come out – the ones who have done what is good to the resurrection resulting in life, and the ones who have done what is evil to the resurrection resulting in condemnation. Matthew 10:32-33 King James Version (KJV) 32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. John 13:34 King James Bible A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. This world is ruled by Satan and all those that follow him may live lavishly now but as certain as day follows night hell is their destination I just watched one of those slide galleries of over 100 popular or famous stars who have died singers producers movies tv and art and most were not Christians or believers and most died young in pain addictions to drugs alcohol sexual perversions brought them to an early grave from overdose or suicide and died as wealthy people some wasted everything on their addiction or perversions if fame is so glorious why do these people struggle with simple life mental disorders made more manifest because of constant struggles with fame and fans it is because they followed the wrong god not the God the creator --- John 1:3 New King James Version (NKJV) 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. (speaking about Jesus Christ.) if people could save themselves from dying , don't you think they would ? I like everyone else on SC post negative happenings but I know it cannot place me in hell or destroy my soul it might kill the body but that is getting older more tired and will eventually fail I pray as long as I do live to profess Jesus as Christ and Saviour until my last breath -- the bible IS THE ONLY BOOK on the best seller list that is never mentioned but it is since it's mass printing the most sold book of all time and the least read and most misquoted or twisted in all the world if it were on trial all the evidence would prove the "BEING" of Christ his death resurrection and accention from hundreds of witnesses his live by many historians a few that live in his day and others who quoted or mentioned survivors and people that went to their death refusing to recant their witness to seeing miracles performed by Jesus a recent stone was found inscribed with the name of Pilate the man that officiated at Jesus trial and for hundreds of years unbelievers said there was never a man named Pilate and Jesus never lived or was crucified or performed miracles like raise the dead or heal the sick or cast out demons turn water into wine or defeat death hell and the grave. "THEY" may take all my possessions jail me kill me but they cannot take my soul or change my mind that Jesus sits on the right hand of God the father and "WILL" come back and judge the quick & the dead to life everlasting or hell and damnation and anyone no matter what sins you have done NO ONE is beyond redemption it is only "your" disbelief that Christ can and will save you that stands in anyones way of salvation and it can only be done while you are alive once you die there is NO reversal NO chance at redemption Hebrews 9:27 King James Version (KJV) 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Caesarea, Israel New Testament Period Pontius Pilate, (26-37 AD) Limestone, inscribed 82.0 cm H, 65.0 cm W Building Dedication 4 Lines of Writing (Latin) Date of Discovery: 1961 Israel Museum (Jerusalem) AE 1963 no. 104

    Yeah, and the problem is.....? We are pretty close geologically to the "Yellowstone Caldera", so, if/when she blows, we will "drop" in for a visit Snake. Re-sighting in my Mooisin-Nagant Facist Fighter, just to make sure Petra is still good to go, when she needs to be.

    If I'm going to plant trees, they would certainly be fruit trees. l want something out of it if I'm going to water it half the time. Their are positives to having fruit trees, here are a few ( food, have to much after harvest, sell or barter with people. Apple trees will attract wild game in your area like deer. ) Ive been planting a lot of potatoes in my area, for the past 3 years or so now. Most folks don't know what a potato plant looks like, which is fine by me.

    Wilson Combat accessories many of which I have installed used and abused and all have shown they are well thought out and well made. my observation today is about their flat recoil spring it is a fantastic upgrade from a original round coil spring one note you need either their recoil spring guide as a normal guide rod is to large in diameter and will not fit into the Wilson flat recoil spring or you can opt for the full length recoil spring guide rod with spring plug you can buy products separate or as a kit. the increased spring for ball loads I ended up with a 17# and it actually felt better than an original 15# round coil version this came with a shock buff, the spring makes it feel smother does not have that "spring suction cup gun sound" and more consistent compression not jerky I also note that the spring guide rod is solid rides more fit to the spring than original parts IMO I have looked in on many posts on 1911 forums and find that many agree that the colt either came with a 14 or 15 # spring originally as many thought it was too soft for ball or +P ammo and over time lost its power all I know is I agree that the original spring was not best for +P loads and as most of us we shoot generic and carry self defense ammo thats power level is greater well for most people that is not an issue as most pistols have less than a few boxes of shells shot through them and the rest of the time they decorate a drawer or a table top or are a safe queen. For the people interested in shooting and enjoy it your not going to wear out a 1911 anytime soon. I cannot leave it that there is a difference between manufacturers and it is not price and the argument over cast versus milled is all dependent on the parts we are talking about investment casting has been a corner stone of many reliable firearm companies. It is best to do your own research on companies and their products recent posts on other forums are bashing a 3500 dollar 1911 and many of this companies other versions because most people want much different looks or safety features I would buy basic and build up. I found that extended levers can be more a problem they can require a different holster as some will release the safety or the mag release if sat on or leaned into as well as making the original wider ambidextrous may be good for some I d'ont see it as once it is game on the safety stays off and who said you would have a thumb to operate it with no matter what orientation.. long ago I learmed that a standard rear sight make a hell of a slide cocker off a belt or jeans. I am not a purist I am a realist what works is for you if you have to adapt to the customizations and think to hard imagine if your under stress If you have to look to insure your rod is hot practice or find another IMHO.

    , which can be dangerous and frustrating for me. I purchased an "attractive price point" double action only 9mm pistol, polymer framed for lightweight carry, and possible use in a pinch if necessary. I did this some months ago. The trigger and I don't see eye to eye at all, however, it has been accurate at 10 meters or less, which is the distance this thing is designed for. Not going to mention the brand name yet still want to wring it out a bit more. Had to send it back to its home factory, due to some reliability issues right out of the box, and that was frustrating. However, the factory did replace almost everything immediately and instead of a four stage reset on the trigger, I now have one audible "click" upon reset. The trigger is polymer, which feels "weird", to me, as an older dog, I prefer metal. However, at one time I had two Taurus revolvers, both of the "CIA hammerless configuation", enclosed hammers, and broker both metal triggers off the revolvers at the range during normal fire. Yes, Taurus eventually got around to repair and replace, took many weeks to get them back. I sold them off since we were no longer compatible. I am still looking for my "smaller" ideal 9mm pistol. Like the innate reliability and accuracy of the (friends owned) 9mm Shields I've fired, but dislike how truly thin they are. Seriously thinking about a Shield with a Hogue grip on it, to give my tactile grip "feel" a warm and fuzzy, or use. Pachmayr grip glove, both the Hogue and the packs I use on other pistols and love them. perhaps I "fell" for the 10+1 round capacity, (which I can now get close to ) with a Shield, or the weight made me bite. Kind of perplexed with myself at this point. The pistol works for its intended purposes, just can't get all confident about it for some reason, and THAT, is wholly unacceptable to me.

    yea life's a bit@h especially when your "loved one" does not fill the bill I had the same feeling when I got a glock 17 when they first came out must have been that tupperweird box that suckerd me in the feel of the pistol was creepy as you fired the trigger felt like a sucker dart spring gun and weight shifted it rolled around in your hand so I was never confident in my point of aim IE muscle memory the sights were so wide that in order to really put them in a tight group I shaved the front sight a bit. a friend has a Sig P938 compact 1911 controls in 9mm and he likes it he told me he tried 3 brands of amm and not a hiccup in fact no negatives at all and he is picky he's a big guy so he like the mag with the pinky extension all steel they are proud of them but sometimes errrrrr no not really all the time you get what you pay for up and to a point there is a point where it is to grotesque or blingy to look at without thinking thats worse than a diamond studded gold plated AK pistol with a pair of gold plated 40 round magazines with a mag clamp EEEEEyuckfu. Well thats all I got I was looking at the Beretta Nano online but I have yet to handle one you either give up concealability size weight capacity or ammo snobbish trigger gritty or no grippy touchy feely or looks like a purse gun and then there are the real issues like a decocker sights that look like mosquito bites hangs in your pocket looks like your trying to hide a brick and accessories cost like gold and or impossible to find or try looking for a cheap Bren 10 mag we used to laugh back in the day that the only person with 3 mags was Sonny on Miami vice --(not the Sonny from sonny & cher) get one of them grip condoms worked for a few I had

    Iodine 131 that is the bad boy that will give you thyroid cancer IT IS CUMULATIVE UNLESS IT IS FLUSHED OUT ! Here is an article that basically gives the ignorant a feeling of calm. It is well known that spiders have been found in the stratosphere flying on air currents a spider is heavier than a atom of so many other particles that are wafting across. I watched a recent video of a seal having seizures on the beach in southern California if this same thing were to happen to a mammal at sea like a seal walrus whale etc that breath air they would drown razor clam fisheries have been closed and a few other problems like salmon numbers but it is hard to get facts with all the trolls on either side. If anyone here has tried to spread dirt or sand you can see that it does not stay in a clump is scatters and in wind it scatters all the more radioactive material is not spread uniformly as the jet stream prevailing winds storms and many many other factors move it if one particle and it can be the only particle in your town lands on your deck chair your level will differ quite a bit from everyone else it is that simple. Personally I see this as a very very very dangerous event that cannot be stopped look up one of our eminent Dr. Michio Kaku Theoretical Physicist, Professor, and he was in the Army has real world experience and I feel he is being portrait as making this issue a cash cow and I think he does not express himself more emphatically, This may very well be an extinction event over time as these units sit on the coast and in an area that has earthquakes and tsunamis the ground under the reactors is being washed away the only thing keeping things in check are tons of water soon there will be no more space to contain the radiated water or soil and the containment vessels and bags are degrading pipes have had to be driven into the bags because the decaying matter like leaves and dead insects and critters are making methane and that is explosive and all it would take is a lightening strike to fire all those bags into one huge fire. Dr. Kaku explains that a atomic reaction like that of a reactor cannot be stopped the Chernobyl reactor is still burning but contained by tons of concrete and when the reactor burned through its containment it was over a bed of sand that turned to molten glass that keeps it floating and fixed but Fukashima is on sinking sand being undermined by water leaking through into the sea many malformed animals and sea creatures are being found more so than before so am I or you to blow this off and call it a conspiracy theory or foil hat fodder ? I say if half of what I have read is genuine we got 10 years before the pacific will not feed the 2 billion people that live in and around it and that is if the other reactors do not have some setback. I figure one day I will tune up Fox news and see some if not all slide into the sea and go full melt and if you have ever seen water drop into hot grease or into molten lead the explosions are terrific add into the fact this has rod that if they touch they explode and there are over a thousand LMAO that should set the tuna fishing back a few hundred years off of japan and they and China will have to fish the Atlantic and that barley keeps north and south America in sardines in fact we import them from Spain and Portugal. Its a food problem not a radiation one well both but it will be sporadic between starvation and cancer IMHO. Can you imagine half the Islands in the pacific that are populated now devoid of life human or animal ?

    The news cycle on this has been shorter than a 3 hour old tuna sandwich on a picnic table in the dead of summer. We have not seen the bodies brought back or news from the families or squat what about the odd track of the container ship the NYT had a piece that the 7 sailors were brought back last month. Three were injured and the Commander on Friday air lifted to Yokosuka then released on Monday. The Crystal has a VDR or Voyage data recorder and it like a flight data recorder keeps track of all changes track speed and records conversations between persons via internal communications, The coast guard is investigating and have brought in Coastguard specialists from the states to augment the small contingent in Japan to aid in the investigation. It just seems very quiet reports are sketchy at best and regurgitated excuses for both vessels to cover the hour or more between the incident and contact with anyone who could help for over an hour other ships were in the area the Japanese are very capable and were were the Fitzgerald's The USS Fitzgerald collision is the third mishap since February involving Navy warships near Japan. In February, USS Antietam, a guided-missile cruiser, damaged its propellers and spilled hydraulic oil into the ocean after running aground off the coast of Japan. At the time, officials told Fox News the warship had dragged its anchor after 30 knot winds blew the ship from its anchorage onto shoal water grounding the ship. Last month, USS Lake Champlain a guided-missile cruiser hit a South Korean fishing boat, near the Korean peninsula but no injuries were reported. Something is awry ......crew can be from 130 to just over 300 depending on the class newer means fewer crew if incidents are so common place so few would have a real time making repairs underway after an incident it comes to mind we are to vested in technology and not bolstering it with manpower as a ship cannot repair itself and there need to be enough trained and experienced officers to make command decisions the Fitzgerald appeared to be able to maneuver and make it back to port 80 miles was not listing from what little I could find flooding had to have been contained I'll leave it there........

    It has been said that America always does the right thing, but only after they have exhausted all other options. When Nasa first began sending astronauts into space, they were confronted by a small problem. Their standard ballpoint pens would not work in space. They spent a decade and twelve million dollars designing a pen that would work below three hundred degrees, in space, and on glass. Russia used a pencil. Daddy, what are those two spiders doing," she asked? "They're mating," her father replied. "What do you call the spider on top," she asked? "A Daddy Longlegs," her father answered. "So, the other one is a Mommy Longlegs," the little girl asked? As his heart soared with the joy of such a cute and innocent question he replied, "No dear. Both of them are Daddy Longlegs. The little girl, looking a little puzzled, thought for a moment, then lifted her foot and stomped them flat. "Well," she said, "that may be OK in California, but we're not having any of that crap here in Texas."

Why am I so upset because those 7 people were left to drown to save the other on that ship locked in waiting to die all the while knowing what would happen once that hatch was closed and probably in the dark looking for air pockets trying to stay alive hoping beyond hope some one could break through or find an alternative hatch and get them out from a stranger than fiction supposed accident General Keene his version read like a script all the traffic could be seen on satellite in real time and he said "it was dark" 2 billion dollars cutting edge radar sonar and other computers a 360 degree bubble for out to at least 60 miles and that is what he had to say ?

    I was wondering beyond what was in the news about the weather and as far as all reports it was a calm sea almost flat there was a 1/3 moon and visibility was unhindered no fog or other weather to obscure a watches ability to see or hear. One instance a mother of one of the deceased was reported as saying that the freighter did not have marker lights on and or some other anomalous issues. another issue brought up was why did the USS Fitzgerald not send a alert / distress call ? it appears that the freighter called in the report to Japanese officials. I find it impossible that the USS Fitzgerald was unable to avoid being run down by a vessel with half it's speed and maneuverability unless there was a severe problem and why did the watch normally port (left) and starboard (right) and fantail watch minimal as well you have the bridge and that has displays and numerous radar sonar and 3D 360 degree bubble of information including satellite GPS information in REAL TIME ! I would expect you could ski behind any of our vessels from 0 to top speed classified but it is not a tug boat it's a damn DESTROYER ! I also I of the mind we have to many electronic toys and it makes people complacent electronic or electrical or wired instruments or communication is the point of intrusion or disabling or manipulation with EMP or pulse weapons can effect any wired piece of equipment except manually operated mechanical only that means it cannot be overcome by any means other then human intervention or a force that can destroy it why did we get away from the old blower for communications you know blow into it and the plug on the other end had a valve that whistled and you answered by uncorking it and yelling into the tube ? we would not need but a few like from the bridge to engine room, fire control and damage control At some time in order to be advanced you need to look back what worked before and how you can incorporate it alongside new technology. Weapons I have researched of late make me consider that human interface on the battlefield or at sea is in more danger than ever weapons we only heard of in comic books are reality weapons the size of a beer keg can wipe out all technology and blackout a continent germ warfare that can target specific genetic attributes Aurel weapons magnetic rail guns launching projectiles a 10,000 fps a 30MM only goes 3,500 FPS and 3 round burst turns a tank into chunks and other things, and other things "The time has come," the Walrus said,"To talk of many things: Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--Of cabbages--and kings-- And why the sea is boiling hot--And whether pigs have wings." Strange things are happening just below Panama in Columbia and also Venezuela evil things partnering with the middle east evil loves to rub shoulders and have no conscience money is their only end game and power all of south America is infested with foreign agents and as far as I know we have NO friends in the "global" community, it is time to open our eyes and see that we are friendless and once our money is of no value and we can no longer afford to buy the bar a round the party will end "they: will strip us naked kill us and throw us in the gutter.

If I were younger a wind brace / row and line of trees on the drive in northern exposure a wind row there and small groves of fruit trees and other small groves of fruit trees about 10 for each grove in a corner disused a blackberry patch and fence rows grape vines all along them mounds of lilac or lavender heather or other cash crops but that have an aesthetic beauty. depends on your climate hops is a good cash crop and many others like juniper trees for their berries. its all good but when you plant a tree do them in 3s in an area that the max diameter will not encroach on the others and if one dies you have the others just remember the roots generally are as the diameter of the foliage of the tree / branches expanse. also look up diseases for the ones you choose some are attractants for borers beetles and fungus some require minerals etc and sprays to combat infestations just make sure that trees do not grow tall enough to fall over on you home place them far enough to be safe.

    Another day chained to the oar called MICROSH*T, my hard drive bailed on one of the laptops and I had to go to best buy and get another if I would be putting a version of Linux on it in an hour would have been doing other things but microsh*t is always a b@stard find all the new drivers look for other drivers then restart every time you install some software and it comes with SH*T where are PEACHOSI or LinuxLite comes fairly loaded. the drive I got was a 500 gig cheapest WD and its great except Microshaft cant allocate memory release memory and is fidgety about older hardware were as Linux ran a scanner I had for years until it bit the bullet most any HP printer will work with Linux but once Microshaft decide not to support one if it's many failures hardware companies forget they even made the model and you have to replace all your TV cards video scanner printer etc etc because drivers are outdated. Anymore anything you buy does not come with software unless preconfigured so hunting down drivers is a pain this ASUS laptop I had to use a magnifying glass to read the model under the battery LMAO had 12 screws and I still had to use a can opener to pry it apart. many technological doodads are throw away or until the latest and greatest NEW model comes out ....... think I crank up a John Wayne movie but every time I look away Windows ask do you wan to restart or update or do not shut down till updates complete and that has taken hours. My father told me if I always kept my word was honest and finished the job I would go far in life --- bet bill gates dad never told him that line of crap ! because he never has IMHO.

    It appears that Iran as fired 2 missiles and it has caused Trump to issue orders on Sunday and we are now GO for a green light on military action. On another note the Euphrates river is running at 80% of just 10 years ago this feeds into the Biblical narrative where the kings of the east will go down into the middle east to make war ...... King James Bible 16:12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. The video on youtube overflying Damascus Syria show hat is only considered a ruinous heap here is a verse to entertain you Isaiah 17King James Version (KJV) 17 The burden of Damascus.

Why have many of the world leaders been called to Antarctica let us suppose you would want to see a terrestrial body or NIBIRU the best place to see it from would be from guess where ! personally I think it is the apex of EVIL.
