  1. AlGore, has always been all about the money. He, like J@ckson and Sharpton, have found a way to “cash in”. None of then can even spell ethics, much less engage in it.
  2. , 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.
  3. 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.
  4. A thinking of the “metro herd of Entitlement Brigades”, is always good for society. People need to face reality, sometime in their lives. Living the lifestyle CHOICE of tribalized warfare (gangster/thug life), is not what this Republic is founded for.
  5. First, having a GHB, is something all of our adult children have, and their spouses have as well. Those go “with” on all vehicle trips. Ours have felon repellent and felon redundancy capabilities just in case as well. (You figure it out for yourself) Water and shelter are the most critical items to have the ability to deploy as needed, even if, it’s only for shade, or to help keep the rain and snow off of you, your vehicle etc. Im a big believer in razor sharp folding knives and other cutting/chopping hand tools, that can also be “dual purposed”, if/when things “get close...”. As for assisting the genetically stupid, defined by me as being too selfish to think “they” might need some self sufficiency, I’m not inclined to offer any assistance. The innocents and older folks, will always be welcomed into our fold. The others are whiney sniveling drones, that are of no earthly use.
  6. Of course, China is beginning to put the financial squeeze on US! The Dems/Prog/Marxists will love have our Republic capitulate financially to the PRC, after all, they are “useful idiots”!
  7. Snake, Its OK that the bakers are being forced to be political correct, in providing goods and services to the public at large. Let the buyer beware... Lets let the hat wearing useful idiots march in solidarity with their people, rather than celebrating the rights of all American citizens. So, having some excremental bits and pieces in the cookies and cakes, seems to be a fair trade politically. Embrace the suck, Snake, let’s let it happen all over this Republic. I agree with Marie Antoinette on this one, during her fast fall from French Elite, “let them eat cake...”!
  8. Welcome, we are a motley lot of opinionated folks, just like you, good place for some solid information sharing and a great place to just plain vent at times. Although, having a solid sense of self esteem, and humor helps! Hope you like it here!
  9. ICBM’s are for nuclear weapons, not for weaponized chemical delivery systems. Any of Fox News multitude of ex-Military experts would have shared that tidbit with the bleach bl9nde talking heads. Tactical missles, VERY short range can be used, but, artillery and mortar delivery are the most often used and on battlefield troops. Aerial short range spraying has been used in Syria and Iraq. It would be far more effective if the MalignantDwarfNORK, had some of his minions, bring in chemical Weapons, via our southern border and deploy them in large metro areas. Chemical agents, anthrax, etc, are all short range, short duration tools. Egads, can’t these journalistic professionals even read for themselves? I am weaning myself off televised “news”, because most is digital excrement anyway. Fear mongering, only is effective, when the Sheeple are too apathetic to do their own reading and research. Then, most Sheeple, will simply be infected with the “Ostrich Syndrome”, and bury their heads wherever they can, to avoid reality, leaving their assets completely exposed. Better for society, that the Ostrich Herd gets thinned from time to time than further increasing the ranks of the Entitlement Brigades. The laws of natural selection are not a bad thing at all.
  10. Ok Snake, after read8ng your treatise on the UNGAINLY and Ms. haley’s Comments on “remembering”, I hope we do have a long and deep memory of who our friends are not. Babylon-on-the-Hudson (UN GA site), needs to be returned to US sovereignty and control, and we must defund US participation in the United Nations Goat Rapers Club as soon as possible. They aren’t doing a bit of good at all, and we can apply our savings to our national debt and be more free in the world to do as we know what is right and moral t9 do, without the Eurotrash looking down their Marxist noses at us. Let the Russians annex the Eurozone at this point, just more useless idiots to feed.
  11. As I got older, I realized that I had “bounced checks”, on my body from having “fun”, chasing knuckle heads over fences, hill and dale. After awhile, my body told my brain, DUDE! It’s time to collect what is owed. Unfortunately, the “reality shows” are ALL complete crap and do a major disservice to the law enforcement profession. They never show the hours upon hours of sheer boredom and dealing with societal trash’s domestic disputes, drug deals gone bad, etc; then the few milliseconds of sheer terror one experiences. The pounds of trivial paperwork that MUST be political correct for the politician pimps, and then, having lazy ADA’s not wanting to try any case that “might” lower their conviction or clearance rate. It’s no wonder that now, it’s not the job it used to be, nor will it ever be “good” again. Far too many idiots with cameras, political whores wanting to be on cameras for their own selfish interests, and the useless hordes of Entitlement Brigades wanting to record their latest McDonald’sMcnuggetBrawl with their same demographic peers, or the latest cat fight over complete crap from WalMart. Yeah, it’s now just adult and juvenile daycare, changing society’s public Title 8 subsidized housing diapers, and failed Socialist/Marxist/Progressive social policies, and the continued subsidy of votes for political power. Anyone SEE a “revolution” on the horizon coming? Sooner than later, the taxpayers are going to revolt, and that will be a huge mess that will never be able to be contained. So, while we are still able to, have a Merry Christmas, and be kind and wise.
  12. As someone who in past careers, (was one), I can attest to what I feel is THE problem. So called affirmative action hiring, where specific demographic quotas were used to measure law enforcement recruiting, as opposed to documentable behavior, arrests, convictions, etc. The latter IS a far more reliable tool, for measuring performance and ethics, than anything else. However, as usual, the political pimps, have made political correctness the new State Religion, and you WILL obey those edicts or else. Hiring used to be “blind”, as to race, gender, etc. Not anymore. While those social demographic identifiers may make certain political noise-makers “feel good” about themselves, it doesn’t work in the actual community. People need to, and we must hold our public safety personnel to a higher performance standard than normal society values. Solely because of the power we bestow upon them. Ergo, if there is a documentable performance lapse, or, an abuse of power, we must rid those agencies of those who abuse that power and that ethical standard immediately. I would use the Clinton-Lewinsky Events, as a prime example of what has happened, and the reasons WHY, our current political cesspool is as rancid as th it is. We must hold all of our public employees, whether voted in or hired, to a higher more intense standard so that the Lois Lerner’s and others are NEVER allowed to ascend as high as they have to infect the bureaucracy with the systemic infection it now has. We may well as a Constitutional Republic, not recover from this fatal infection we now see unfolding all over the Republic, on a local, state and national level.
  13. Thanksgiving here in the Intermountain West was warm and pleasant. Reminded me of California Thanksgivings as a young boy! All this past week, has been colder than a cast iron toilet seat...
  14. For me personally, I do believe in God’s Divine Plan of Happiness, for us, all of us, (even Hillary if she chooses), to gain our mortal bodies, and one day, return to His presence. However, just as we as allegedly practicing Christians, should, BY EXAMPLE, (note:this includes all who profess to be Judeo-Christian, including politicians, intellectuals, etc.) be kind to each other. This does not mean I am going to turn my behind into a local thug’s bicycle rack, turning the other cheek, means forgiveness. However, with that forgiveness, justice must still be meted out . If you are a thug, and abusing any innocent or vulnerable person, in my presence, expect your mortality on this world to be immediately hastened. Turning whomever into non-consensual victims, is NOT “tolerance, equality, or love”. While I do try to practice what I preach, it is difficult. The difference, is, I do keep on trying to do good to my fellow beings. Just as we shouldn’t censor ideas, or thoughts that are in disagreement with ours, don’t demand that I “look the other way”, just because in some thug’s culture, or religious ideology, he can abuse, rape, sodomize or murder to his hearts content. In this Republic’s culture and religious ideology, that kind of “behavior”, rightly is prohibited by both God and mankind. Don’t like it? Then practice Sharia Law, or your political selfishness someplace else. I refuse to submit to your expectation of “tolerance and/or re-education.”
  15. Fish do pee in water, as do I every single time I’m in the ocean or any body of fresh water....including swimming pools. So do all of you, ya just don’t have the testicular fortitude to admit it!!!
  16. Sure missed your Avatar, P210! Welcome back to both of ya!
  17. I well remember the quizzical looks from younger police officers, in several classes I was teaching. I spoke of having a “knife fight in a phone booth”, and got crickets and thousand yard stares. Then I found (after lunch), online photos of phone booths with sliding doors, and also had to explain the term, “dropping the dime”, to them. AI can be a wonderful thing, IF, used correctly. Alas, it will not ever be used for good. The good old days, just got a lot more distant.....
  18. I find it incredulous, that none of the so-called experts in “the media” have a clue about evil doers and why they engage in these heinous acts. The deceased shooter was an ardent and militant atheist, and wanted to murder all of his ex wife’s family members. The shooter was shot once in the left thigh and the left side of his chest through a gap in his body armor by the one armed “good guy”, who was barefoot and willing to engage the shooter to stop the murder of his neighbors. The driver of the pickup, willingly chased the armed suspect with the good guy, and the forced the suspect to crash. If the shooter hadn’t shot himself, the coroner said that the thoracic shot was causing the suspect to bleed out anyway, and he would have died from that wound and possibly his left leg wound. So, both the suspect and the good guy were using AR-15 rifles on that fateful Sunday, one to prevent further bloodshed and the other, to continue his murderous ant-religion hatred. Of course this was a hate crime, of course the Federal reporting system failed, and of course the shooter typically took the cowards way out. Yet somehow, an inanimate object is fully responsible for this heinous act. Using that same “logic”, we just of course, ban all motor vehicles because of the drunken drivers whose ehicles cause more than 30,000 deaths annually in our country, plus the more than 50,000 gore IOU’s injuries. Somehow, the hypocrisy of their flawed “logic”escapes these nitwits, who so willingly, demand our Constitutional Rights be stripped from us, in the name of “security”. Adolf Hitler demanded and got the same thing, and look how well that turned out for mankind.
  19. I bought a case of the foam (attached) ear plugs, as we use them all the time to protect what hearing we have left.
  20. On foxnews.com as well
  21. All about a young lad from Chicago, seeking his infamy and fortune via “street level wealth redistribution” with his Roscoe. Kansascity.com today’s edition has all the details. I am so proud of this little drip for doing all of Society a favor, well worth a read, but caution, it’s hot a GREAT ending, so no consumption of food or drink while reading the article.... not going to spoil the surprise. Obviously, MAYOR RahmEmmanuelHimself, is not going to let this story go to waste. I truly enjoyed reading this fellow’s personal story of daring dash and survival skills in the glorious bastion of personal freedoms, Chicago. Well done, young man, you’ve made your sperm donor and receiver proud.
  22. I use the ones with built in reader bifocal lenses, very inexpensive and have several pairs in all family vehicles. (Just in case)
  23. Since ChuckieSchumer, was one of the original architects of the “diversity immigration lottery”, I propose we give every single Muslim “immigrant” Chuckie’s personal D.C. address, and New York State home addresses, so, those folks can drop by and “thank” Chuckie in person. We mustn’t to forget to remind the Musl8m immigrants, that their benefactor for Jihad, IS, a practicing congregant of the Jewish faith, and heck, while we’re at it, throw in the locations of his favorite synagogues. I’m certain all of Chuckies fellow congregants would love to experience the “diversity”those Muslims bring culturally to our shores. We can all thank SenatorChuckie for his personal largesse’ and sanctimonious viewpoints on behalf of his fellow Americans. Surely, the Muslims wouldn’t be or do anything untoward to Chuckie...
  24. I am willing to bet, actual coin of the realm, that this alleged November 4th Antifa Party, is a dismal failure and will fizzle out in all but a very few of the announced locations. Coordinated “civil disobediance”, is very difficult to organize, lead and logistically plan for, via a committee. These groups always lead via a “committee”, just like academics do, it’s the only thing they really know. Individual leadership is not a dynamic I would ever see in any Antifa “protest”. All it would take for these snowflakes to scurry off, is permanently turning off the switch, rhetorically speaking, and these pansies don’t have any taste or courage for any real fighting, in spite of their posturing and bluster to impress “the ladies”. I’ve never yet managed to see any self styled “Intellectual”, have a capability to truly stand up for or fight, for their own beliefs. While I could be surprised by one some day, Hell could actually freeze over, Nancy Pelosi could lay off the booze, my dog could meow, and the Federal Reserve could admit, “It all really is an illusion”. Sorry, I just don’t see any of that ever happening in my lifetime.
  25. Besides, I’m thrilled at the collapse of the nuclear testing mountain, and hope WE definitely had something to do with it. Happy Halloween to the FatLittleNork!
