    I would not rather get shot (again) or ever get shot at (again) period. While some people may tote a .500 S&W, the reality is that the majority of the thug demographic, doesn't even have access to a handgun in that caliber. Most homicides in this country are in caliber .22LR, .380 ACP, or 9mm. (See FBI-DOJ Uniform Crime Report-annual) This should not be interpreted as these are "the" ne plus ultra fight stoppers. It simply means that at the time the trigger was pulled, at some point in time, the "victim" died from the administration of the bullet/s. While no caliber can be an instant fight stopper, the first rule of any gunfight, is HAVE a loaded gun. The second rule, equally important in my personal book of truth, is to not get into a gunfight in the first place. I carry legally because I've seen evil and know that it continues to flourish and exist everywhere in spite of my best efforts to avoid it like a politician. If all you have is a .380, it's better than a stern look, or a pencil.

    Hamas founder dies after 'accidentally' shooting himself If this guy could do it anyone could January 9th, Fawzy Barhoum, spokesman for the Gaza-based Islamist terror group, said that Imad al-Alami, one of the movement’s most senior officials, was critically wounded when his personal firearm accidentally discharged. I am just so upset --- that it did not happen to more of them....

    This school shooter like the rest of them, telegraphed his murderous intent on social media pages months ago, to even as some media outlets are reporting, emailing the FBI himself, telling them what he was planning. This was also no surprise to the students that knew of him at that school, as several media outlets are reporting that many students “knew” he was quite capable of this kind of an act, long before he actually perpetuated it. Yet, the faux-intellectual-elitists in this Republic, consistently cry out about the tools used in this cowardly and despicable act, instead of placing blame squarely where it belongs. Th8s hypocrisy, merely continues to perpetuate their false moral outrage, and shows us all, that their true agenda, is the removal of Constitutionally protected Rights, for their political power grab. They care nothing about actually being able to stop these kinds of terror attacks.

    GOOGLE PIZZA CALLER: Is this Gordon's Pizza? GOOGLE: No sir, it's Google Pizza. CALLER: I must have dialed a wrong number. Sorry. GOOGLE: No sir, Google bought Gordon’s Pizza last month. CALLER: OK.. I would like to order a pizza. GOOGLE: Do you want your usual, sir? CALLER: My usual? You know me? GOOGLE: According to our caller ID data sheet, the last 12 times you called you ordered an extra-large pizza with three cheeses, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms and meatballs on a thick crust. CALLER: OK! That’s what I want … GOOGLE: May I suggest that this time you order a pizza with ricotta, arugula, sun-dried tomatoes and olives on a whole wheat gluten free thin crust? CALLER: What? I detest vegetables. GOOGLE: Your cholesterol is not good, sir. CALLER: How the hell do you know? GOOGLE: Well, we cross-referenced your home phone number with your medical records. We have the result of your blood tests for the last 7 years. CALLER: Okay, but I do not want your rotten vegetable pizza! I already take medication for my cholesterol. GOOGLE: Excuse me sir, but you have not taken your medication regularly. According to our database, you only purchased a box of 30 cholesterol tablets once, at Drug RX Network, 4 months ago. CALLER: I bought more from another drugstore. GOOGLE: That doesn’t show on your credit card statement. CALLER: I paid in cash. GOOGLE: But you did not withdraw enough cash according to your bank statement. CALLER: I have other sources of cash. GOOGLE: That doesn’t show on your last tax return unless you bought them using an undeclared income source, which is against the law. CALLER: WHAT THE HELL? GOOGLE: I'm sorry, sir, we use such information only with the sole intention of helping you. CALLER: Enough already! I'm sick to death of Google, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and all the others.

    Let's get into the weeds "STOPPING POWER". Stopping power is as elusive as a albino whale although we know they exist or have or, will again is a useless fact if your searching for one spending your own money and time. Then there are the arguments that the world is flat or X caliber is more able then the world is round as all calibers have performed and accomplished one shot stops..... so what is it, well it it's part fact a bit of fiction mixed with magic pain and fear. The human body cannot function beyond certain limits like nerve damage lack of oxygen or clinical death. All of these factors take time from a split second to minutes, minutes you may not have in an altercation or would have if you could have the time to analyze the instant replay and be able to act on it. The reason why I am so pro 2nd amendment is obvious once seen through the lens of lets say Afghanistan once people do not have options of hand weapons they will do like Theodore John Kaczynski or the Unibomber or even the lowly kitchen knife as was used in China on a many occasions where one person killed more than many shootings here all you have to do is type in, "knife attacks in china" and a whole list will pop up. So do knives have stopping power ? yes they do but unlike a bullet it is very hard to "test" but I can assure you that stabbing weapons do stop people in their tracks in many cases like bullets they have to do damage to vital organs as well as inflict pain enough to "stop" the individual from being able to function. So lets do the math or NOT ! because this is where fuzzy math has been contorted to 3 dimensions to explain something that it is not able to in any situation as all are totally different, unique and quite unable to be explained except after by a intense investigation and or an autopsy. We all know or should that 357 magnum has had more ability to stop attackers over any other caliber but if you just take that and not dig deeper you will miss the competing factors such as bullet weight barrel length and other statistics like clothing thickness bullet type weight and distance of individual shootings. More important is survival of the victims and yes there are survivors, some use catheters others need a bag to crap in stuck to their side others are in wheel chairs or cannot function to 100% of their previous ability. Does this mean they did not effect their mission of injuring or killing others ? The answer is NO NO and sometimes. Think of a body in 3 dimensions moving in all directions as so are the organs not fixed in space, this is why center mass is he approved aiming point it takes the largest area and asks you to focus and try to place all your shots in it, thats it ! This is part probability part lawyer foo and all guess work that the shooter is capable of hitting a bull in the azz with a bass fiddle ! under stress fear and never having been in a potentially lethal confrontation in their lives. On the attackers side many are accustom violence or have a long list of violent crimes or worse have used violent tactics against weaker individuals with such success that they feel embolden so they have no fear or understanding that someone will or can attempt to stop them in essence bullies like the guy in Missouri that strong armed robbed a convenience store and then assaulted a police officer and then was shot dead by that same officer after the subject turned and attacked like he was Godzilla attacking Tokyo --- why, because he had used that tactic before brute strength and bully tactics that had worked before. That is the psychological condition of man, our go to option is what we know has worked in the past. Now consider a person that has zero experience and fills that lack of experience with -- you got it hearsay fables STORIES. Facts on the other hand are confusing and will not bring confidence up at all. I am sure that the lady that went up to her attic with her children and shot the home intruder in the face was either 5 or 6 times and he didn't die is awestruck that he did not stop after the first shot and still survived, after all in the movies they throw a sheet over people shot in the head just once don't they ? Let us also look at fanatical and psychopathic attacks they are not as rare as one might think but the war in the Philippine Moro's (mooslims) was where the U.S. found that 38 was not a man stopper and opted for a .45ACP everyone forgets that the round was full metal jacket or the velocity is not best for expansion but in this case using it on full grown people of no more than 120 pounds it worked another fact is that they (Moro's ) wrapped / bound themselves with strips of cloth like a mummy and got all psyched out before an attack -- nothing like natural endorphines and testosterone fueled with religious hatred to start your day. and we have all heard of the doped out of their minds attackers even the police have problems in taking down and this is fact and a lot of luck on the dope heads part on here got shot 17 times by numerous officers and lived and still had to be tackled by officers-- notice PLURAL more than one. In the event of an attack by a religious or doped up individual, Your azz is grass no jury with an overzealous prosecutor is easily going to accept your story that you had to shoot 15 times and reload and this may sound sexist but unless your a female although women shoot better than men generally speaking. Remember the state is not going to investigate beyond the fact you shot someone it's your lawyers responsibility to put up a defense, remember that so you better hope there is video and your lawyer has the sense of mind to know that find it and exploit it for your benefit. The reason for the civilian to carry is to defend themselves -- now think that through, it does not mean for you to defend against the golden horde and it is on your part INSANE if you think your able to take on a group of individuals with long arms IMHO it may play well in the press that you died with your boots on heroically your battered body numerous wounds last gasp yada yada yada PRAY you die because if you live you will be blamed for everything since the civil war and god help you if you accidentally shoot a bystander in any situation. Once you pull a gun your liability NEVER ENDS at least recklessly discharging a firearm and a blot on your record and up to murder either by one of these Murder, Manslaughter or Justifiable Homicide. Please note that all of them means you killed someone and some will always equate it just that way. Statistics prove -- nothing, people have been killed with a pellet gun 25acp and old 32 caliber pocket revolvers some were even rimfire that are known anemic calibers. is there some magic balankee we can find solace in as far as a handgun and not fear the consequences of using it ---the answer is NO, there will be consequences in either way if you carry don't carry use it or just forget you have it and get arrested in the wrong place like a school property and I know about all the stories that people have been let off because yada yada but that is not always law but an effort of the local legal system not to ruin a particular person that does not say they won't make you an example ! To pocket pistol or not to pocket pistol or even a tiny derringer, if you work in a antigun company or a place where carry is a definite firing offense but still know it is not an option for yourself as you have a threat against you this may be your only choice. Companies are willing to sacrifice individuals for their own beliefs or rules because they are not legally responsible if they could be charged or sued because of their rules it would be another matter entirely IMHO. Because of my surroundings I have NOT carried, in some instances I have decided to carry a pocket version and others full size, full power with a long gun backup shotgun or rifle. That is why we have all the variety and because people come in all different sizes shapes weather / event appropriate clothing and professions. I like that corporations are protecting themselves like sports coliseums with metal detectors but once you leave like one man who had his children with him was attacked and beaten to death by a couple of competing sports fans found out once outside the venue your a victim waiting to happen. I am sure his children appreciate the fact that all those people in the stadium were safe from firearms even though they were forced to watch their father get beat and stomped to death. Think outside the box, I hear that and know it is a load of sh*t 97% of people don't. There are real reason why people carry just as much what they carry and between brow beating from the dwindling numbers of pro 2nd amendment full size carry ONLY and the fear of the legal system or their employer people that should don't. Every time I hear of a rape murder or kidnapping I wonder how many criminals would be dead or jailed instead of someone being victimized and how many that would eliminate from being future victims. How many times have we seen or read that the felon has done this repeatedly and has been in and out of prisons, a fact that fails to penetrate the parole boards and justice or might ai say injustice system. it is a self fulfilling perpetual machine criminals re-offend the system makes more money they can't pay but the tax payer does so they get a check any way it goes. the criminals have children who because of not having a 2 parent home have a greater chance of becoming a criminal themselves their parent has to for the most part depend on social services like welfare and food stamps help with rent and medical at the expense of again the tax payer who subsidizes the evolution of the criminal from birth to death and even in death we foot the bill for an autopsy and burial as does anyone really think these types care or spend money on insurance or a burial policy ? and what about their children ? we are saddled with all the responsibility and no accountability as in do they spend the money on food and how well are their children doing in school or if the parent is on drugs OH HELL NO ! that is an invasion of privacy but, if your in the military you do not have the luxury of privacy or in corporate employment try being a pilot and not getting drug tested or a truck driver. people cannot tell the difference between most common calibers fired from a pistol some can differentiate rifle shots from a pistol BUT any criminal can figure out there is a gun in play that is not their own and that scares 99% of them silly and once the pain of a bullet strikes them the fight or flight response kicks in and them leaving is as good as stopping or dead as it terminates the incident for you, if they live and escape that may mean they target someone else to get away but that can happen with any caliber the proof is people survive war wounds and some still managed fight on. Stopping power caliber or arguments thereof will never be settled and in some cases after the fact we can see it is true that a longer barrel larger caliber could have made a difference that is still dependent on the individual and their ability. That being said a Glock 40 all shots fired and none striking the criminal in a crowded mall or parking lot is scary as hell to me, more so than a loose purse snatcher IMHO. You see everything has to balance the incident the place situational reasoning is as important as the reason to use a firearm or not. In the movie Crocodile Dundee, he is in New York sees a purse snatcher grab a purse takes a can from a passing persons grocery bag and hurls it hitting the criminal in the head retrieves the purse and is the hero BULLSH*T in New Yuck he would be arrested for theft (of the can good) injury with a weapon as now the can is a weapon and probably attempted murder as the strike was to the criminal now victims head plus he was running and no longer a threat and the actor (thrower of the can) was never in jeopardy of injury or loss of property and the list goes on. TV and Movies have screwed this culture up worse than drugs. New cop shows make you believe that if your not guilty you will talk to police if you lawyer up your guilty or have something to hide that is ignorance on both sides of the screen and the first thing your lawyer will ask is, "what did you say" because in the moment and excitement witnesses will have different versions but your words no matter if taken in or out of context can bury you. Why all of this post on caliber because it is not the gun the incident caliber it is the outcome the court or the grand jury that people need to get, the Monday morning quarterbacking scenario target rich environment of the incident itself as you can win the gun battle and do life in prison for killing a bystander save dozens in a mall and cause or kill one child and the horror will not go away. this is life it is messy filled with lawyers courts and prisons and choices shoot or not live or die it's not so easy and caliber is the least of considerations for the civilian IMHO.

    Although not a new topic I am reading many reviews on many firearms that are very inexpensive and been on the market for long enough to consider them durable, inexpensive and if your not intending to fire thousands of rounds out of them practicing In interest of economy the firearms I am choosing to pick are inexpensive for people that want a defensive or protection option over expensive firearms. note that a few of these are IMO BUTT UGLY but all are solid and hard to break and are full power. My opinion is at least one must be a semi auto if you have no weapons and are looking your first should be a semi auto why, because no other reloading method is as fast or less clumsy that a magazine fed pistol. Hi point pistol semi-automatic don't buy a .380 because that is the first ammo that was gone during the ammo crisis. Mosin Nagant rifle bolt action BECAUSE lots of cheap ammo still around powerful enough to take large game. Maverick 88 shotgun pimp action and H&R 1871 Pardner Shotgun this depends on the stature of those using and level of ability to handle recoil 12 ga does kick or invest in low recoil shells. I would still opt for calibers that are common like the 12ga and 9MM but no matter if your just starting out a 9MM Hi-Point half dozen magazines and a lot of ammo.

    I am certainly in total agreement that HAVING three decent firearms is “the rule”. I would add a .22LR rifle to the mix as well, but, that is my own personal subjectivity sh8ning through. While I am not going to purchase a High-Point pistol (own selfish reasons), I have shooting buds that have purchased their handgun caliber carbines and rave about them. Yes, I even fired a few mags of 9mm through a bud’s. I would rather have one than nothing, by, my choices clearly do not reflect another’s. Last year, I purchased a logistically attractive price point 9mm SCCY pistol. I liked the idea of 10+1 in a small package and another ten round mag being included. It is accurate enough for bad breath encounters, and if used, I wouldn’t feel “bad”, about it sitting in an evidence locker for who knows how long. It’s a BUG for my uses, and so far, it’s been reliable with the standard pressure JHP rounds I’ve put through it. However, with the success of the Glock 43 and the S&W 9mm Shield, I see the SCCY as filling a “niche” rather than a need. As a very wise mentor once shared with me, “You will never, ever, need a gun, until you need one, badly!” In my past military service and professional career/s, I’ve seen that adage come true, unfortunately. Others, I was with at various times, were “not gunned up”,and were essentially useless, except as being a field expedient bullet-shagger. (Which did not occur) Since I still have two hands that are attached and working, I like the choices and preps I decided on long ago. They work for me. I like having a shotgun handy, as well as a reach out and touch somebody that deserves it rifle, as well as a varmint-vermin .22 Any firearm is better than a stern look.

    ....I'll add the Heritage rough rider single six in .22 lr/ WMR or any number of rifles from savage or Marlin in the samecalibers...under $200 very accurate and will feed you where the others will defend and take big game (which someone should not pursue unless they have the resources and skills to process and preserve the game properly). hijack alert....the table (ballistics by the inch) you posted earlier has helped me with an arguement I have been having for years with my Rough Rider....if the velocity increase in the 6" barrel of the WMR ammo is worth the cost, noise, flash and fouling increases.....it seems I was right!

    While we are here and velocity plays an important part in stopping power, I was amazed to see the disparaging differences even within a single caliber. My research did produce a few winners .357 mag .41 magnum and 44 magnum when compared between a 4 inch barrel and a 16 or 18 inch barrel carbine. Otherwise I can see much benefit except concealment over a 4 to 5 inch pistol compared to carbine length rifles in any other caliber if there is any doubt go to Ballistics By the Inch here is the web site Ballistics by the inch tables for 2 to 18 inch barrels To my surprise the least contender for improvement was the 10MM velocity wise. I do ask people to also go to gundata.org for bullet drop chats by caliber here is the link Gundata.org bullet drop charts by caliber Comparing the bullet velocity and bullet drop gives you a reasonable assumption of the range and power on a flat trajectory. Although not a given but a good marksman could effectively use a carbine out to 3 MOA and for the magnums is out to 125 to 160 yards. Out of personal interest I looked up 9MM and it appears that @ 100 yards had a bullet drop of 12 inches and flat trajectory was only out to 35 yards give or take from there it went quickly south so anyone using a 9MM carbine would have to be very aware of range to maintain accuracy, even with a bullet drop optic you could count on mental calculation in a time of crisis might be a tad difficult IMHO.

    My EDC is a 9mm +p, 6 rds of Corbon Powerball behind a Bellot FMJ 124gr "police load" I have a few of left, they are 1150fps in a 124 gr. this I feel gives me if not good enough stopping power....at least sufficient dissuade power..... I also sometimes carry a small .22 lr 6 shot revolver, at close enough range you get to add the powder charge (burn and pressure) to the bullet damage and when "snub" firing a revolver is the only way to go as the contact with someone's body can cause auto loaders to fail...especial if the grab for them.

    Fortunately for me, I’ve never felt the siren call of the latest and greatest pistol. I have lusted after several, but never fallen under their spell. I came very late to the polymer-party, and went Glock, because the sheer simplicity makes sense to me. Yes, they are YOU-gly, beyond butt ugly, but in my hands, they are accurate, reliable for my needs; and I won’t feel too bad if they have to sit in an evidence locker, if I have to use one for personal defense. I don’t feel that way about my 1911’s nor my BHPs. I would not be happy with them in “time out”, so to speak. So, the Glock fills a role. Even the newest one, a 21SF, yeah, it’s a bit of a behemoth to conceal at times, but I dress around it, since I’ve never been sartorially splendid, it’s OK. I like the 13+1 capacity of older, slower (like me) rounds hitting hard and accurately.

    Hi folks, glad to be here. I posted a thought or two prior to this, yesterday. I like stockpiling essentials, but limited space has me thinking of another shed out back. I got noticed already , surprisigly, and am grateful. I said a little bout my ammo making skills. ( stockpilling in moderate amounts.) Got a dog & a lady (evil princess) sharing my digs. Things are going better after my minor surgery, and then the Flu. Symptoms are about gone , on each. So I'll read some, before I get to lengthy here.

    ....I believe stopping power is not so elusive, it is inside the barrel of the weapon you feel the most comfortable firing. The one with the weigh, feel, recoil, angle of the handle and sight alignment that just puts holes in things everytime you pull the trigger. Stopping power comes from familiarity with and confidence in the steel (....ok... Or polymer...) in your hand.....with in reason of course. Love your .380 all you want but I'd rather be shot in the chest with a .380 then anywhere with a .500 S&W.

    Adding, most metropolitan areas in this country, have been allowed to purposefully degenerate into “shi*t holes”, by their Democratic Party Plantation Masters. Is that racist to acknowledge those facts and that reality? Of course not. The corruption is the same, be it in Haiti, African continent, or, our own major metro areas. Same group of political pustules screwing the populace financially and selfishly, for their own personal enrichment.

    What’s even worse is when the Canadian government had a whole bunch of the Browning Hi Power handguns which could have been sold to legal firearms owners, yet the government of Canada destroyed all they had. This was in the news, a few years back. What a shame.

    New Age Movement or the accomplishment of the infinitesimal. I am more aware of the NAM movement and I will use this abbreviation from here out. It is hard to explain to a non Christian and even most Christians are like a cross jackass when it comes to dimensional effect, it is where human thought can bring about change at distant events people places and things. The NAM has made strides and are today setting tests to prove that positive thoughts can be transmitted and have a effect on the physical world, Well I have read my Bible and in it it states positively that "PRAYER" works. Where the NAM misses the real point is that as an example there are 7 billion people and although you can make some effect the ID or self is the problem it is not what I wish and get it is what I do in this body and that person has to subject itself to a power greater and pure or self rule will run wild. The other dragon head to rise is the arrogant god like complex where we pat ourselves on the back so hard that we walk into traffic. This self same ideology s rampant in the AI or Artificial intelligence community and that in itself a gigantic community of sciences and human beings Fuzzy Logic is one of the parameters that quantum computing is hashing out as we speak this coupled with the NAM mindset may or may not realize that what they want to do is reduce God to a non entity one of the pillars is to be able to connect the synapses of the brain to a computer chip. The body will power it by weal electrical force as my read on it is the is a chip for a digital "backup" and in theory if you need to "reboot" due to a horrific event like a death of a loved one or a crash you could do as you would with your computer is reset it back to a previous state . PLEASE LET THAT SET A BIT, under this paradigm a murderer could be reset to a time before he killed and in effect would no longer be a murderer. It is just too damn bad that there is this dead body in the way. Existentialism the New Age Movement and other spheres of thought are converging on the temporal to inflict their version of values on the now and brush off the past and only move forward in plain words eliminate SIN and replace it with a value that humans can define manipulate and build on --- make no mistake this is a new age Tower of Babel. In order for this shift to be homogenized some alteration in laws rules and punishment we would effectively have to give over our will and accept a "chip" to be part of our matrix we have the technology to read write or alter the coding of a chip remotely that should make your butt pucker but it has not instead we buy wallets that have a mesh to resist reading of our credit cards and fell we are still in control when in essence it is the software that invades our computers and systems that just steal the information and we are oblivious until we swipe our card again --- and that will be the state of humanity with a chip we will not know the price or the loss until is is too late. I am NOT a skeptic I know that humans can effect the present and events by thought alone our problem is there are the forces that Atheists and Agnostics fence sitters fail to factor in God and Satan it is like working on a electrical panel in the dark on a wet floor and you no nothing about electricity, to anyone watching with an ounce of knowledge the outcome is sketchy at best deadly more so. Neither am I a prude I can see where this ability to use chips to vault over damaged nerves would do a lot for humans with disabilities could circumnavigate the brain to allow a leap over a damaged portion I am too very aware of man to believe that they will not try to extricate God from humanity and remove SIN from their greeds and wants all men and all women want the same things to be complete dictatorial rulers I have seen this irrational behavior destroy families or must I use the Romeo & Juliet shtick to bury the point. Imagine the world filled with people who had spiritual powers akin to magic now one step more and read about the Hindu gods that made war on each other I myself do not relegate those as stories, it is my opinion that in the pre flood world God watched as his creation was corrupted and as we are warned of in Matthew 24:37-39 As in the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. It is not a question we do not know how long it took for the ancients to evolve into a society that could lift 100 ton stones over a couple of mountain ranges and or melt them like marshmallows and fit them together the proof is in every country we have the Snake mounds, south America has thousands of pyramids the ones in Egypt are mere sub par copies in scope of size. People are stupid the grandeur and historical artifacts do not phase them in the least they accept the watered down piss poor history of evolution when we have buildings built of 50 ton stones on top of mountains and we cannot date them hammer heads weighting 40 pounds who in the hell swings a hammer 40 pounds ? If we do not know our history cannot quantify the natural do you really think we could alter the human brain and not screw that up. the fact that there are people already accepting chips ought to cause people to wonder if we should not have them placed in a sanitarium. all because they want to be some of the first ? there is only one first everything else is a copy and we all know that copies degrade and more better improvements are in the pipeline so your obsolete before the skin heals. Intel co-founder Gordon Moore in 1965 predicted the doubling of technology every 18 months we are running true to form. There are persons that want to give human rights to AI beings as of NOW when we as humans cannot decide what is an Illegal alien ? when money drives all kinds of evil consider drug dealers deal to people the see and know and watch as they waste away go to jail and prisons and die and that does not bring them to the realization that they are ruining and killing fellow human beings and most don't care. the NAM thinks because they can make a plant grow faster hundreds of miles away and they can double blind studies support this but they can't pull their heads out of the ether and patting themselves on the back and see the world is crumbling Damascus Syria is a pile or ruble Lebanon once called the Paris of the middle east is another pile of ruble Africa is being swallowed alive by Islam look at groups like BOKOHARAM. and then there is North Korea I have heard too many people talk like Kim is not crazy well I don't think he is but he may well drive himself into proving a point because the U.N. and the nations do not come with gifts of gold given to kings like in the distant past. We stand on the edge of total destruction and we wait our nation is going broke because we paid for everyones problems and ignored our own our government lies to us through 500 + senators congressmen and officials and we suck it up like its cream all the while bankers are robbing us blind and our officials are good with that as long as they hold power. I see where a new Kennedy has popped up all the zeal and half the appeal his debut on the national stage was a flop as the makeup made him look like he was drooling on himself. and all the ills we have today are from fermenting problems our leaders failed to finish when they had the opportunity and history is NOT taught because that would trip up the leaders of today of we remembered just who sh*t themselves and why we still smell it. The whole intension of the NAM and extensional movement is to make man God, eliminate sin or as Aleister Crowley nick named the beast, a satanist born October 12th 1875 died December 1st 1947 SAID, "Do as thou wilt" if people today with power were allowed to do that --- we would have what we have today total anarchy confusion hate animosity outrageous greed wars and rumors of war disease hell 50,000,000 have died in Africa from aids / HIV, Venezuela is gradually going to end up cannibals in both Columbia are murdering street people / undesirables Mexico is in total free fall the government is a puppet of the Narco state and they do not want the wall as it would hurt drug trade. So exactly as my Bible states it's here how many years I don't know could be we are in the last days I think we are we still have a few items on the Biblical punch list but that would not take more than a few years if we are on the fast track. We do not know if we / America is still standing as an EMP from North Korea as we sit on our hands they are building an arsenal we can down a few but not a dozen rockets at once Iran is quietly pumping out nuclear weapons grade glowy stuff and we still sit here Pakistan and India hate each other and the Pakistani state sold all the enrichment equipment to --- Iran and Iran aids North Korea it has been mentioned that many years ago when the USSR fell and they lost track of some suitcase BOOMS that they may find there way here ? with a border that is like a 4 lane hiway I can't see why not. I do know that the Jaguar is the most deadly animal in south America but he fears the ant we are the jaguar they are the ants, and when they decide to move we are going to be the last to know and we will be hit from every side, oh by the way North Korea has penetrated our computer system electrical grid and every bank governing and defense system and even exposed millions of Americans credit information --- IMHO we are not being kept informed. It is coming spring I look to see some "action" soon put your seats and tray tables up and tighten your safety belts ......

    Wanting to add to this as if it were not long enough already BUT. I have always been interested in UFO's Bigfoot alien beings Cryptids as well as natural phenomenon, I do not dispute any of it as being "real" make no mistake I still have an unshakable belief in God Jesus the Holy Spirit and the King James Biblical narrative. My issue is that what will not allow us to see it and alters it statement of "where" they come from or what it does scares or harms humans or animals is NOT repeat NOT from the creator God there is another group that emanates from Satan or Lucifer and the Nephlim Serifim and the demonic. there are Demonologists Oculist parapsychologists and physicist that investigate paranormal events places and entities WHY this should peek the interest of anyone who listens to or watches information on these topics as this is where the natural inter dimensional and supernatural connect -- mankind has NEVER been alone PERIOD . Everything means exactly what ? well it means exactly what it states EVERYTHING ! The first 6 chapters of the Biblical narrative explains everything read on and you find there is a fallen or separate group that defies the Creator and His Creation. As we see Satan's M.O. is deception half truth and innuendo to go further he uses trickery the Bible states that he can appear as an angel of light. We are warned to never speak to the dead or necromancy not to divine the alludes to using Tarot cards or any physical thing like dice or an 8 ball it does not matter the medium there are forces, Demonic ones that will turn those items against the living. Physical items can harbor evil spirits there are practitioners of Voodoo that imbue their creations with spirits If you believe that or not they surely do people have been possessed or haunted by items they have brought into their homes and there in is another issue if your not aware you have power over your home and those in it you can resist or refuse to bring in or allow anyone to cross your threshold and you should some people things and entities can only gain access to you your home or property if you allow or do things that open your self to them. The sue of spirit calling chanting or using common items one of the best known is a Ouija board. Certain activities open the third eye and opens themselves to entities that are NOT HUMAN or ever have been. There have been people that have used this "gift" and it is not a gift as well as others that are confidence tricksters so you see because the two are not able to be discerned you should neither be a party to them or in their company. The worst is Astrology there are 2 sets of books your either in the ascending or descending of any astrological sign the reason why is so you can be defined if not nothing on one side would ever fit you so there is no way not to apply it to the individual there is also what is called the cusp or the just start or just ending of a cycle so there is no way an Astrologer could not have a "reading for you" One very important point is what you place your faith in becomes your god and Satan will use that as a leash to manipulate and counter any actions that could lead you astray from his or demonic control . As simple as it sounds Alcohol, drugs, intense meditation, sensory deprivation even continual chanting attracts the demonic, one of many signs is altered personality changes or quirks depression where there was no such sign before self abuse roller coaster emotional states. Humans are complex and once and a while like old Sigmund Freud used to say a cigar is just a cigar. One of the reason I am posting on this subject is that I see a very soft and persistent discloser coming from multiple fronts and in these there are similar elements that state that we are seeded here by extraterrestrials and that their previous habitation was he moon and mars etc. any cursory research on the net tons of photos of structures on these planets are driving people to spend billions to seek out blah blah and go where man has never gone before --- B.S. to ignore the humanity on this ball of dirt is insanity whatever "they" find you can bet your azz it is not going to lower your water sewer or light bill ONE IOTA. "THEY" well still expect you to serve up your children to the god of war for NOTHING we have not prevented crap in fact we have initiated it ? WHAT did we gain in Why did we halfazz the Korean war ? Vietnam what did we gain ? drug interdiction in south America can you not still get illegal drugs here from there ? We have destabilized the middle east and it is still in flames constant bombings and civil war between the Sunni's and Shiites but your never told that is the reason why he blood continues to flow. We pay for both sides Israel and Hamas in one country we back the Sunni's in another we back the Shiites and then we play footsy with the Wahabbis ??? the news media is in the pocket of someone and it is not American it has no vested interest in a independent or powerful United States, that should be ery obvious even to a moron. When will people wake up and realize we are being led around by the nose manipulated and tricked into looking the other way so we fail to see the real problem is US. Divide and conquer from race to politics to sexual morays and conventions . we have to make laws for things that should be self evident that is a gigantic waste of time and resources it is demonic in the 1950 and 1960s thing were pretty good never perfect but America was the light of the world sexual sin and perversion gluttony greed and drugs is the difference it has always had a presence it has just never had the broad trouble it is now -- Sin is and always will be with us it is the amount we allow that starts to break down our society and as our society has slid I have noticed more intense appearances of the Demonic paranormal and extraterrestrial. Main stream science has bought into this whole hog and are willing to spend billions more make no mistake it is to prover there is no God and once aliens "appear" or they prove there are other beings that lived on far planets you can bet your azz as if it were not bad enough now that the great falling away will happen churches will be homes for bats and crickets. If there is a creation there has to be a creator if all this came from nothing and God is a spirit and we can neither see or experience a spirit unless it wants to be experienced PERIOD and that makes more sense than a tiny ugly gray alien saying we are an experiment they brought us here bred us with apes and only pop in now and again to keep up ??? REALLY and the billions that have been murdered and died were because they forgot to send a christmas card ? or they are of no consequence ? At least in the Biblical narrative all will be judged by the perfect judge who can see into the depth of the human soul and from that either that person will have eternal life or not. in the alien scenario your family tree is dirt under your feet. What prodded me to write this is literally hundreds of Youtube Videos of intellectuals scientists and new age mystics that sprout from nothing or what might be disinformation from aliens or a demonic entity all of these ideal the ignore or relegate God as no more than a imaginary entity dreamed up by the aliens to keep us from harming ourselves to give us guidance LMAO many even tout that the aliens gave us the Bible the Koran and all the other religious books now that is pure stupid on a cracker if they want to help or prevent us annihilating each other why would all these books be so confusing or some are just man made jumble of a combination of others . The only BOOK that states eace and where the deity instead of coming as a warrior who did not build palaces or wear gold or even have a crown except that of thorns as well never thought of himself he healed the sick the lame fed the hungry and as his last commandment stated to lover your neighbor as you do yourself and went off and did exactly as the Bible said and that was never to argue his guilt or innocents and in his last breath and 3 days later his resurrection accomplished now don't quote me but if I am not mistaken 343 prophesies that were written over a period of and arguments say 3,000 to 6,000 years ---- thats a pretty neat trick considering the chances are in the quadrillions that even 100 would happen. My mind ghasps at the thought that I should believe that little green gray and 11 other types of aliens flew down and crapped my great great ...... grand daddy on a rock and billions of years later want to show up and want me to shake their hand and say thank you ? for what do I own a yacht am I an underwear model ? do I have millions in reserve am I king of some country ? and neither are 9999 % of the rest of you out there. And it really befuddles me that a scientist would swallow that line after spending years begging for money to get projects done and the aliens are going to show up and poof all that technology is crap ! you have worked yourself out of a job how completely silly is that I guess they are hoping for a seat on the interplanetary counsel ? just what will their place be if a being that is so advanced that even the brightest of us are no more than drooling mucous ? and what if your one of the droolers that had some really stupid theories wouldn't you be a spectacle for them to guffaw at --- hey look it the guy with 9 PHD's and he thought we were reptilians when anyone would know we are crustaceans ho ho ho ho...... I may make this seem funny or trivial but it is real there are thousands of scientists that believe what I have stated above and if it comes to funding their project to the next star and you starving --- your going to starve. There are people that think we never went to space and to me it does not matter all I see is the pain suffering and starvation and disease we should have been fixing here while pissing away over trillions of dollars over 50 years to figure that space is 99.9 % NOTHING EMPTY NADA BUPKISS a big ZERO now if that does not hit you in the gut I don't know what else to say except get ready to kiss some gnarly gray azz because I don't think they bathe, their ships are not large enough to have all the amenities because if there are that many don't your think we would find some alien poo stuck to the side of our shuttle IMHO.

    Sig new military pistol owners manual Sids new pistol is impressive from its removable modular trigger group to it's design as well as it comes in 9MM 40S&W 357 Sig and 45ACP it also has different frames including a compact a firearm for all seasons and reasons. I hope this Pistol works well and I think it will this M17 or XM17 and all of the modular system looks well engineered its weight is optimal or a full size very minimalistic controls and also has designs that are IMHO from previous individual best pistil designs The barrel hints of a Browning Hi power the trapped recoil spring assembly from Glock the safety activation of a colt ( more natural) The only thing I saw as a mistake is the use of a rifle barrel had I been on the design team I would have went with a polygonal barrel. This also has other traits of the Beretta as the rotating slide release lever and steel double stacked magazine w/ a easily removable polymer floor plate. The other Glock attributes and I am only guessing is the barrel dropping so there are less chances of jams if any we will see from field tests but I think this design will do well. I am not a polymer fan personally but when your a soldier you want a reliable easy to field strip and maintain accurate weapon and since your being issued all your gear ( for the most part in some cases you can chose and buy some gear) but I mean in the sense it's not coming out of your pocket you use it and respect it as intended. The complete system of holster drop leg accessories a picatinny rail it is supposedly offered with a laser that when it is mounted fits the holster I am on the fence on lasers but in some cases that option is fantastic. Sig now that is a good company I hope it continues to be so and reproves itself with even more distinction I would have like a Colt but since they have rested on their laurels for over a hundred years the world has passed them by except for individuals who like them and I rank as one but our military needs this more modular w/ fewer parts because their incorporated into well though out assemblies. For once I agree with the new pistol because it offers multiple calibers grip frames and a holster that can fit all of the above and by what I read it has a stainless slide again it is better as fas as polymer it is as good or IMHO better than aluminum for a frame. All i care about is our military gets a good pistol.

    I think science has gone off the rails instead of requiring absolute proof they now decide amongst themselves what theory is flyable. most of science is made up of those that feel any intrusion of faith or religion ideas verges on blasphemy of the highest order. It is really a problem when science proves the biblical narrative it's like a lab fire everyone jumps to extinguish it before it causes and damage, in this case to how utterly bias science is. Findings from DNA proves that we all come from a single female that includes all races of people so we are all humans so to all those that choose to use race as a predicate for hatred your fools. The Darwinian theory falls apart when scrutinized for transitional fossils or skeletons as there are none species pop up like poptarts and disappear some are still here in a smaller form like clams and DNA is all over the place a clam has 40 chromosomes we have 23 are we less than the clam ? they came before people biblically and scientifically since they are a great deal older should we not worship them ? I do not think Darwin was an agnostic he was only trying to understand the world as he could in his day and time. Today as sophisticated as science gets it strives to maintain there is no God but they turn and spout the Bible that we come from nothing in the big bang We see now that science is touting the multi dimensional view, and thats funny because even a cursory look into the Bible tells us there are dimensions and time and space as we know it are applicable to us in this dimension and maybe others but to God time is irrelevant. I was watching a video where atheists asked if the dinosaur had not been destroyed and became oil where did the pitch to coat the Ark come from ? Pitch is also tree sap -- anyone recall Pine Pitch, it's pine tar or sap also known as rosin. I do not choose want or am willing to force people to believe in God, Separation of church and state only means any government we have cannot dictate what religion we must follow and people advertise crap they do not believe in all the time so a town having a stone with the 10 commandments on it is not a demand that they believe in anything but to consider a moral code. every company has a code if you work for Coke you best not be caught drinking a Pepsi product or promoting it or you will be fired it is called POLICY. where a stone monument with words requires not even that you believe in it or be required to read it. Fire exits and alarms ? they scare people and are meant to if you have ever been burned in a real fire that should terrorize you to no end and also remind you of that PTSD moment evoking trauma and fear but do you hear anyone wanting to remove those signs and alarms ? well why not ? If you think about it it is also demeaning as it also show people are stupid not to go somewhere that they do not know the way out of as any idiot could tell you in a multistory building egress by means of stairs never by way of an elevator. Road signs ought to really trigger people because it should remind them that they are idiots continually and that science and natural forces can have grave implications on their lives if not paid attention to as in gravity, centrifugal force and momentum. The real reason of the alt left desire to remove all connotations of religion is part of the communist manifesto there can be no substitution of a / the leader and only their ideals and words must be considered relevant. If you lived in North Korea or Venezuela right now you would have a different view but as their voice is silent from fear of being interred in a gulag or shot by a firing squad after being tortured to turn in others that think as you. if your a socialist here you need to experience real socialism before you ask us to drink the koolaid IMHO. There are new findings where in China you get value points if your "good" if you do not tweet bad things about the government or are not caught doing things like using drugs or in the proximity of those aspects of social encounters. The phones we use can track us listen to us and can place us in a real jam if used as a incontrovertible witness as tho where were you what were you doing what did you say etc etc etc. AI or artificial intelligence is not just a robot it is software that can think and react if it thinks you are involved in a criminal act it could dial 911 on your azz your phone could be searched as a witness as it is today in vehicle accidents. Back in the day we could put the SETI app on out computers it made them an array to crunch complicated numbers / algorithms to help the SEARCH FOR EXTRATERRESTRIAL INTELLIGENCE or SETI . I think there was also a program to research the human genome project if I recall correctly that is not an issue but today we need to KNOW that there is a kabal of forces that want to control every human from cradle to grave up to and including your speech all of your actions and where you get your news how you feel about issues like trans or GlBT issues politics and religion or gun control animal rights as everything they can quantify about you helps to profile you and we all know that profiling is BAD we cannot profile a certain religion but if your a Christian thats OK. See it is not clear and just who is suppose to monitor or set the boundaries ? OH another set or level of bureaucrats that are unaccountable highly paid and your not allowed to know about there history or views ? so they can profile but we would never be able to profile them ! We are on the slippery slope and never to return as the young generation cannot leave their phone they pay more attention to it than traffic their children or families. I have heard some very disturbing news and it is getting worse either this generation takes this head on or it will be controlled by it there is not second choice.

    I like coupling at least one or two calibers like a 22 rifle and pistol or have 2 arms that are the same caliber / make. It is difficult to read or watch videos about firearms in a prep situation and make a decision on what to buy or to have. There is no real single scenario that we can hang our hat on. Looking to Venezuela and other nations where the population had to defend themselves hunt and survive you become very aware that it is area predicated if you live in the city and your counting on hunting dogs cats and pigeons you need a pellet gun. Reasons being quiet shot signature. and just what are people needing to defend themselves from it appears to be roving bands of thieves and home invaders. you would never want the gangs thinking you have disrespected them or you really want to avoid. We see the police protecting pro governing events and they do not seem as they are missing any meals either. for people that have property with access to the woods a 5 gun battery is great . where people that are inner city and do not go beyond the suburbs and do not have contacts to run to and can only hunker down and wait it out even if it does take years like Kosovo or the many cities in Columbia and Venezuela. Never think that places like Syria there are no gangs or opportunists that target individuals it is just that the fog of war covers this fact because it is so low on the eminent dangers . In any slide from a ordered governing body there is a fluid and loose acceptance of black markets gangs and illegality in general if your a cop or a street level soldier a blind eye is better than a stick stuck in it. because yuur in a goldfish bowl so how do you get medications food and other items to keep your family alive, the short answer is to allow a certain amount of trade to move and when you need it you have a resource. That does not mean you have to be a paid asset or protection it is just a matter of keeping your eyes open and it is best to realize that people in power may not like you harming or interfering in some street level affairs. Today we have CI's or confidential informants that help agencies to ferret out criminality and if you as a citizen starts to make their life hard you may be placing yourself in a situation. I wish everything was clear cut it ain't the good guys don't all wear white hats and the bad guys may be much worse to approachable as of now in a society with rules and laws people do not have to know or deal with that in an upturn of societal norms that may change, let us hope it stays that way.

    I did see that savage had some good alternatives and they are solid firearms. Marlin I have read where some of the quality control may be lacking, though I have not handled any recent marlin products. I do agree that one should not take game they are incapable of process, preserve and consume of course saying that I know that even today we have poachers that net and by other means ill off areas of fish and only take game fish and leave the rest, it is also common to find carcasses of deer and other game even farm animals that have been killed and only the back strap and hams are taken. In this case it is because of fear of land owners or game wardens, in a time WROL hungry people don't think or care they will scramble to snatch portions wile others will only wait for noise that gives away a hunt to sweep in and take the "prize" and may also eliminate the poachers as well as take their game. People are like wall switches the right pressure and they can and do turn into animals either herd or predators IMO. I think ere is a good time to explain that if we look at the models of Columbia or Venezuela there are active purging programs to eliminate street people street urchins and criminals that are not affiliated with their power structure. Murder squads actively hunt unwanted or "deplorable's" this is what happens when socioeconomic and political rule fails whats left is just so much food clean water pharmaceuticals and treatment those will be controlled and sold at the highest price, while common people will be left to their own devices or dog eat dog. To think it would not happen here is total fantasy, if is not if but when. America may be a Juggernaut of industry and military might but we are not an island our commerce relies on international trade if our currency staggers so goes the world and like dominoes as they fall their buying power slumps and it becomes a ever tightening noose. I pray this never happens again as it has before. Bread lines have been replaced by food stamps make no mistake it was not the intention to help it was to hide our embarrassment, a nation cannot conduct high level business when visitors see the unwashed in full criminal mode in the streets at high noon. We see where this is starting to fail as the numbers are too much for the system to deal with the burgeoning inmate population the tidal wave of parolees swelling welfare rolls and drug addicts / addiction filling all of these camps. IMHO we are seeping toward the edge problem is when it happens as it has before it snaps and within days or hours the world will change.

    By the way Wally I have found that there are just as many scoffers within the church. What is plainly stated in the scriptures is either glossed over ignored or unpreached because it might offend someone in the congregation REALLY well I am so sorry but if your speeding and a cop stops you tell him that the rules don't apply to you and you do not care to hear what law you broke, after he hands you a ticket and you "refuse" to sign it just remember that you could have drove away but failed to understand that the signature on that ticket was your PR (personal recognizance bond ) your refusal to sign got you arrested. In this case your alive God has issued a bond (Jesus) who died in our place and all we have to do is respect and accept that he is the son of God lived died and resurrected to come again for his people ( those that accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour). I find it totally insane that people will give praise as in flashing the demonic horns with a hand gesture at a concert and in public blaspheme all deities more so God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit and show pride and self sanctification / justification in doing so. ? is that not like railing against gravity or air as you can see neither of those and only feel it under certain circumstances so I say curse gravity and air BUY I guarantee that they need or feel the effect of them and WILL DIE SOME DAY so as I see it they are fools today we have flat earthers OH NO really all the planets are round but ONLY EARTH IS FLAT ? HOW DO WE NOW THIS ? because many planets REVOLVE so unlike the moon that does not rotate and that is another problem how does the moon stay in place without gyroscopic stability any moronic football watcher knows that a ball thrown with a spin is more stable than one thrown straight with NO SPIN. they ignore centrifugal forces gravity and if you ask if they believe in UFO's or magic they agree to that and ancient knowledge but NOT a God or Jesus not that is just an oxymoron at best. These are the same people that think abortion is not murder consider a person walking across a intersection if I decide to hit him because he is in the way and kill him I am charged with homicide whereas if a life starts in the womb and I stop it by or with an action it is not murder ? in either case they are inflicting harm on someone in the way and if it were not for the doctor killing the "fetus in late term abortions they may well have survived if given normal care of a premature baby, but instead tab it in the neck with a pair of forceps. I am the first to say I am not perfect I have seen and done most all there is to do but in my right mind I know much was selfishness or sin trying to exonerate myself with some lame excuse is deluding myself and I choose NOT TO. In my opinion if you try to fool yourself your the chump or as easy a mark as any confidence man could find or hope for. I see this as I do a person constantly hitting their finger with a hammer at some time you would think they would either learn the problem or STOP DOING IT !

    if your mocked your just as Christ he was mocked and then they killed him (Jesus) if there is a creation there must be a creator.

Science has not answered the question as to why people commit suicide why people murder child molestation serial abuse rape theft hatred all they can do is ignore the problems and the government builds larger prisons. Even an idiot can see that science of psychology has NEVER cured not one single person EVER ! as far a pharmacology we see daily where some drug is harming killing or in some way of health destroying peoples lives. BUT --- I have seen the blind the sick and the lame joyful happy and fulfilled through Christ and I have yet to see someone who mocks be a lamp to the darkness for those lost EVER. Science as proven God and then turn around and refute Gods deity or that Christ lived when no less than 8 historians inhis time and realm of remembrance and actual witnesses That is why Christianity has not died and will not die as long as one person person professes Jesus's name as Lord God and savior it is by Christ Jesus all things were created he was and IS the Word the embodiment the physical person of God. People that mock are not courteous or kind are showing no love or care for another human being PERIOD, so are they decent ? are they caring loving ? NO ! I can accept a person that politely tells me that they question or do not believe but those are rare. Christ said, "Forgive them for they no not what they do" let that sink in in all of the pain and suffering he forgave his enemies that is nothing but AMAZING ! Wally all we can do is pray that somehow someway these can be reached by the love of Christ Jesus because as far as I read ALL that call upon the name of Jesus WILL be saved. if they hate or mock which is the same in my book they are not helping in this life. I am with you wally I have been mocked cursed and hated -- so what my eyes ore on the prize not the now but the finish IMHO.

    I have posted on this be fore I am going to attempt to give more information on how o on this topic: LINUX alternative to giving away your money to expansive globalism, globalism is nothing more than a group of wealthy individuals that want a return to royalty where there are kings nobles and surfs or really a slave cast of humans they have no interest in freedom or "rights" for the masses. These people feel by their evolution into the 1% of humanity by virtue of wealth that they are more able to run the worlds governments IE take over all control of the world and decide whom may live or die if you do not believe hat go to youtube and watch agenda 21 videos. Their power is their money and control of global markets jobs and health care. learning new skills is part of becoming self sufficient this is just another skill set. You may ask why -- well because some fine day you will want an operating system on your computer that is NOT windows and oes not require that you validate your every bit of privacy to use your own computer that by the way is your property bought with your money and IMHO I think they also allow could be responsible for some of the major viruses from the selling of their code not to mention I also feel like they could be selling our information. This is why I like Linux no one is in control it is a operating system like windows without all the control of having to log into their corporate kabal and get a serial number and verify your software. What if their computer is down hacked or worse under control ? Most Linux versions are free they come with a version of office calculator cd/ dvd burning software can run most hardware on newer computers it all is dependent on the date / version of the Linux version you download. ISO is a file type is an image or duplicate in order to use a ISO file you have to download it and use a CD/DVD burning software that has the capability to "burn" an ISO Then there is software called unetbootin here is the link Unetbootin This software allow you to take a ISO and put it on a flash drive If your computer is able to boot from USB and most are if you do not know you can look up your computers manual and read about it's "BIO's " some people see that in the corner of your screen "press F2 " some machines have other keys or key combinations to access the BIO's o your computer., to change certain settings in this case you set your "BOOT" settings to use USB first CD/DVD 2nd and then your hard drive or "C drive" 3rd. It will not increase your boot time by much and it will not alter your computer or windows system if you run it from a bootable CD or DVD or flash drive any changes get written to the flash drive if you use a USB flash drive or in the case of CD / DVD it will just be lost once you terminate the program. Eventually I fear that all computers will be "forced" to be booted from the Internet you will no longer have control or power over your own "console" / computer The cloud is a forerunner of the Internet / network hard drive you will not own software but rent it from YOUKNOWWHO so you will have to have an account so your can be billed "on the fly" or as with the old hardwired phone system it is like long distance once you needed to dial outside your prefix you got charged and it depended on how long you were on as to how much you paid. I can see where special programs like CAD or such will cost much more. It is already a fact that any photos or information on your phone is known by the powers that be and all your email and conversations on social media or text.. The reason I like flash drives is that I have had only one fail and I have plenty of them some I have washed in the washing machine once allowed to dry they still work. I am a big proponent of only using a flash drive to store all of your personal and private files as well as a hard backup onto CD or DVD. a local backup is a waste of time if it is on a single drive that has partitions as it is still a single hard drive and once it fails even a more than competent user can retrieve information on it. If you have an older laptop or desktop computer that has a CD /DVD you can boot Linux and test drive it, I have found that a few good versions run quite well on a 1.6 GHZ chip and 2 gigs of ram I have run on a laptop with no hard drive on both a CD/DVD and or a flash drive in either in order to save what you create or haves accessed on the internet you need a flash drive and that includes network settings to get on the internet through your modem and or router as both can require passwords. Peach OSI you need to know if your chip is 32 or 64 bit Peach Linux Linux Lite both 32 and 64 bit versions Linux Lite Puppy Linux very small and useful Puppy linux For a website that has tons of linux versions and information here is Distrowatch Distro Watch

    Got a very good deal yesterday from a gun smith that I know . He had 5,000 pieces of CIL 20 gauge felt wads that he just didn’t want or needed. Purchased it all for one whole loonie/ 1 dollar. Made my day.

    P210SIG you got that right I have been telling the sheeplemasses that if it has a camera its a RAT even the mobile phones that have front and rear cameras also have more than one microphone and even if our phone does not have the night vision software does not mean that both cannot see in the dark or record with the battery out or off. I haver never seen where a criminal will not use anything to their advantage and let us face it when your stock and trade is counterfeiting, misdirection, subterfuge and subverting of agencies or governments then where is the end of the leash ? o if you give them access to your communications video security systems in your business or homes and they have a subject that lives near of next door don't think they will not use it to collect data. Lets face it once anyone gets a taste of unlimited access they are off the chain. one of the Snowden releases showed that boyfriends were used their girlfriends phones for surveillance and we have all seen private cameras from banks retail stores hotels motels traffic and hospital cameras to validate news stories so just who is not blind as not to see foreign camera footage form similar sources to track foreign agents and be a witness for netting those that could be trapped into becoming an informant or blackmailed into service for a host of reasons from petty theft drug use or trafficking infidelity ---anything that can threaten a n individuals livelihood or standing in their community or position. Lets go a few more steps you have access to their medical records bank accounts, court/ legal filings information and credit history school / college records and transcripts etc. you think your a fish in the sea when your just a minnow in a very small tank. then there are pressure points that can be applied if they know your purchase histories like any diseases habits jewelry hotel motel bar bills and that secret abortion you thought no one knew about car rentals bills you pay ---- thats how they find grow houses and really I have not even scratched the surface. INFORMATION IS POWER, so why would anyone give away something so valuable -- because our educational system fails to teach real world topics IMO.

    I've had the opportunity to shoot most polymer pistols out there, and I went out of my way to find a P320. It's my primary EDC gun, and they are phenomenal. Even my diehard Glock buddies who try my P320C are very impressed. I think it's a great choice for the military, though there were other great options in the XM17 trials. I've never had a single jam, FTE, stovepipe, or double-feed in my P320, in probably 3-4000 rounds - most of which were handloads with cast lead bullets. its accuracy is as good or better than any other striker-fired pistol I've tried, HK and Walther included. I just sent my P320 back to SIG this week for the "voluntary upgrade". I'll do a full write-up on the changes and improvements (if any) that result. In the meantime, I just wanted to come in and defend the P320's honor.

    The only control issue with some folks with the P99 , would be the paddle mag release, which is beside the trigger guard. I like the system. Walther changed the designs in their 2 Gen PPQ-M2 more so for the North American market. That said I’m comfortable with either mag release design. The only thing I didn’t like was the smooth grip in the P99, but skateboard tape would fix the issue. Did own a HK-P7 squeeze cock at one time, sold it to a. club member that offered me money at the time that I just couldn’t refuse. A nice compact firearm indeed.

    One of my friend who is a sargent in The Canadian military purchased a P320 about 1 1/2 years ago. I did get to test fire it at the range. I was not impressed at all. The HK VP9 & Walther P99 & PPQ are way better polymer pistols in my opinion. Oh the Walther PPX is a piece of junk, I’ve seen at least 3 of them have parts & frame issues with less than 2,000 rounds through the barrel. Hope the new Sig pistol serves the US military well, if it was me it would not be my first choice.

    The notorious memo, I see this as the smoking gun of just how our system was hijacked by individuals for their own purpose. I am a centrist to alt right I fall somewhere in these lines albeit I am not demographically or racially seen by the left as one. LULAC and RAZA UNITA and everyone including the Indian Guides want me in their camp, well that is not going to happen i am more a constitutional centrist the Bill of Rights is neither a sliding scale or for the "dreamers" and screw the citizen although that word in it self is tainted I only use it here because it is how most Americans identify as (mistakenly) I will not explain that because of the deer in headlights looks I have gotten from people I have tried to explain it to in person I can already feel the rolling eyes, but that can be easily defeated is people open their eyes and minds there are many videos that prove and explain all the "words" used in governance to entrap the common man I cringe at the alt-left that they refuse to see that cheating and lying are options or tools because this is a well known socialist mantra, " the end justifies the means" this is also the mentality of crooked police that plant evidence or witnesses that lie on the stand in court because they have a grievance and in their mind that makes the person guilty of any crime as they are closed minded. In this instance one party attempted over decades to groom and place their choices for high offices to forward their own agenda that is an overthrow of a government, it takes the power from the individual voter, it steals your right to choose your government. In essence this is treason it is under the Rico act a crime. there is something deeply wrong with anyone that people that because it is their side that is winning that it is alright I am not going out on a limb by saying if sports officials were caught colluding throwing games or making B.S. calls to change the outcome of a game people would loose their minds I point to the deflate gate incident enough said. Politics is being seen as a contact sport and this is dangerous we cannot allow either party to have impenetrable power irrevocable means of altering laws or illegally making laws that flaunt the constitution bill of rights that do not apply to anyone but an American where as laws apply to anyone within the confines of the United states or it territories if accused of a crime arrested indicted or maligned and due process in a court of law, as it should be as tar and feathering and running people out of town on a rail is not lawful or reasonable just because we do not like them because of disability ethnicity race creed color sex or religious beliefs and just as important political affiliations as long as each person does not make their rights more important and encroach on another's rights. And this is what was attempted by a group it does not matter what party but in this case they were all aligned with the democratic party but believe me it is just as possible for any group to fester a rouge click that want to control the destiny of our country for their own ends and nothing corrupts as much as power as it corrupts completely if we are not careful we will end up with a king like Louis the XVI /16th and Marie Antoinette and it was going that way our leader played golf while his other half vacationed separately with a full entourage and while unsavory things went on in the world the heads of state were gloriously ABSENT --- ill finish this later OK BACK As anyone with a brain could see neither side can have full advantage I cannot understand people that would allow their leaders to hand over power to a world leader no matter who it may be there are just to many ethnic and regional ideas that although we may not agree with but they see as proper or reasonable I feel that morons here that want some other form of government need to go to where that form is in operation maybe a clitorectomy might bring some of these feminists a new appreciation for the American way of life not to mention wearing a full length garbage bag black in the dead of summer in a friggin desert and then have your male children disrespect you like your a slave housekeeper and then allow your girl children be used as a dry hump doll until they are legal to marry at 9 years old. I forgot about your male children get to dress in drag and dance while the elder men bid on you like a prize pig and it is what it sounds like. dumb people that want socialism need to go live in Venezuela for a few months if you think animals don't need to be clubbed to death for food need to go live there and see that being a vegetarian in the damn arctic not a real option since it's below freezing 7 months out of the year your variety is limited. If the mooslim religion can afford to pay for their people to make the HajJ to fulfill their dream of the ever after --well after they blow themselves up. We could send our stupid people to Moscow or Cuba I would go further but I do not want to be accused of being a clone of George Wallace but it is time people pay for their ill thought out ideals and wants by letting them experience it in the peace corps OR mandatory military service for 2 years that ought to open some sphincters IMO.

    Not my greatest feat of engineering but I had to fix my can crusher Chinese POS popped a rivet. I had to drill out the rivet as it was stuck in the armature and knocking it out with a hammer and punch would have damaged the thin metal arm. I had to search out my stock of bolts and nuts for a proper size placed it and used LOCK-TITE to keep the nut from coming loose. I bench tested it and it appears to work fine of course once one rivet fails another probably could. but that is one problem I can afford to wait for as this is not mission critical equipment. I recycle not because I give a sh*t about the planet I just hate to throw away money, recycling has paid for a lot of my hobbies and repairs. I use scrap iron a lot for fencing and building I have buckets of bolts screws and material garnered from scrapping that I have done or others I have bucket of hinges from garage doors and other hardware complements of my neighbor. A chop saw or a Sawsall and drill you can stock up on really expensive channel, angle, unistrut and steel rod, bolts nuts etc for almost free galvanized metal is very costly the money I save has been incalculable 600 foot of pipe in one building cost me the gas to go get it. what I saved I bought sheet metal today the screws alone cost almost 200 bucks for a garage size building. years ago on an old property I built a garage out of garage door panels after it was trimmed and painted no one could tell what it was except that it had fancy recessed panels some panels have insulation just right for a well house or critter barn. Of course that is dependent on your building ability some people should not breed build or own a firearm this should be obvious if it is not refer back to the previous statement. I have about hundred pounds of crushed cans @ 53 cents a pound it doesn't eat, cost nothing to store in barrels and if I want something I cash out of aluminum brass and other metals and buy what I want. without tapping my funds, it's like Christmas ! If the world comes to worse I have a solar smelting system This is NOT me but I like his videos.

    Listening, hearing are far from comprehension or understanding once you have that nailed down watch this video and try to absorb and understand what she is not outright explaining start at 4:48 ( 4 minutes and 48 seconds into the video. This lady expressly explains how dangerous this is. The Gennie is out of the proverbial Pandora's box why, because there are people who like those who are members of agenda 21 who think the world is over populated and want to remove, take out, KILL 6 out of 7 humans on the planet one professor wants to make the total number of humans to be 500,000 that means killing 11 out of 12 humans. then you have the racists that fly under the left wing flag that wholeheartedly back abortion on demand euthanasia on demand and although they seem to care for people of color everything they do or aspire to is detrimental to those same ethnic racial and cultural people. Imagine if Hitler had a CRISPR and with the use of gene drive decided to kill off all Jews Blacks and any other genetic groups hat he despised his hatred was so great that he would have killed himself because he was so blinded by hate he might have forgotten he was part Jewish himself. CRISPR gene splicing but the real monster is GENE DRIVE what if China decided to eliminate all whites ? even if you only had less than 1% white you would still die LISTEN VERY CLOSELY AT AROUND 7 MINUTES TO THE BAD NEWS ! Psychosis is not always obvious there are people that are functioning and just underneath are howling bat crap crazy or have ideas that fall way short of common sense or normal the list of sexual or deviant afflictions just the names and definitions take a book the size of a major cities phone directory ! how would you like for a NUT ! to decide all children should have the traits that they crave as predators or the mental acuity of a 7 year old or whatever age they choose ? Think that is crazy a recent trial of one man that molested all the girls he could and he was a doctor Dr. Larry Nassar, 54, was charged with molesting seven girls He faces similar charges in a neighboring county and lawsuits filed by more than 125 women and girls. We have crossed the line while this technology could be a powerful tool to rid the world of many diseases I know that all it takes is one psychopath with money and there are a sh*t can load of those about to decide to unleash a genetic maelstrom upon the earth because they can .... there are people who believe that humanity is the leading factor in destruction of planet earth and love animals more than people even themselves. if you thought your life was valuable we now live in a time where is is worthless as per Agenda 21 members. Consider that these same arrogant over educated elites ask that either all firearms are confiscated or a very restrictive set of rules and background checks for buying a firearm have no thoughts on that this technology is SO FU@KING DANGEROUS AS IT COULD WIPE OUT THE PLANET BUT DO NOT ASK TO RESTRICT ITS SALE TO I DUNNO MAYBE NORTH KOREA IRAN OR MANY OTHER HOSTILE COUNTRIES !!! I AM JUST AS SURE THAT YOUR LOCAL CHECK CASHING STORE HAS MORE SECURITY THAN WHERE THESE ARE. Doctors are giving botox to children so pardon me if I have ZERO faith that science can regulate itself I point to scientists that gave away nuclear bomb technology to Russia thinking if we all have the technology no one would dare use it well crack and heroine is known to be deadly and that fact fails to stop people from killing themselves with it !

I’m also not fond of getting anything “implanted in me, on me, nor tattooed on me”! For any reason or requirement. But, I love my chips! Leave it to the Fed and the governmental types to want to get 8nto the chip business and screw it all up.

The American cowboy chronicles Here are a few of my drive by resources There are numerous publications online that bolster both the eft and right somewhere in the middle is truth.

If you follow certain topics on Youtube you may notice that some get deleted or edited in order to maintain an accurate history keep a copy for your use just in case the BOTS wipe out all truth and sources of news, events and history to save us from ourselves so we will have the real story as it happened for posterity.
