    Time to roll/bend over again!!

    Moodys is already considering lowering the U.S. credit rating. We can't afford another war. The U.K.s banking system sucks. http://www.moodys.com/

    Peaceful! I guess you say that in jest? Yep, they're so peaceful they were beheading Americans that were there that were actually helping rebuild a country. You remember that? Treat barberism with barberism.

    Time to roll/bend over again!!

    Heard that last night about them storming the embassys. The host (Andy Bean) said the actually took down the American flag at one and put up an Al Q'da flag? Since when did they have a flag? Just how much are we going to take? I'm begining to wonder if the "Crusades" weren't such a bad idea after all. The U.S.A. is a very young country. We've not being around long and it seems we're being pushed from every direction. They've fought in Asia for 3 thousand yrs. amongst themselves and they're still fighting. I say bring everyone home, secure our boarders, and the hell with the rest of the world! Don't F%@k with us and we won't F@%k with you. Support Israel by all means! If you screw with us you will suffer ramifications. I guess that's why I was a soldier and not a politician. Barry has just denied a request for a meeting with the Israeli prime minister. It also seems that through foriegn policy and deliberation, we're loosing our azzes. (JMO) dr

    Not even safe in your wallet

    Yep, this had been a big topic a year or better back on coasttocoastam. When I heard it, I bought some RFID protector sleeves. The alumi wallet as mentioned is also a good thing. http://www.amazon.com/s?ie=UTF8&keywords=credit%20card%20sleeves&page=1&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Acredit%20card%20sleeves

    FEMA Camp answer...

    It's my personal opinion and it sucks, but "we are coming up on this election", keep this in mind when I say this I'm not placing blame nowhere. We have a couple of supreme court justices getting ready to retire. What if, in the instance that say a couple of more SCJ's are appointed that are willing to rewrite the second amendment. Heck, for that matter, take on the Constitution and just amend the pizz out of it. Yep, I also have posted these EO's on another thread somewhere and scaring the heck out of myself by my reading them and deducing basically the the safety and security of the country would be to disarm the citizen(s). Then we'd be subjects. Subject to incarceration without a speedy trial or even so much as to make a phone call. Stuck in one of these FEMA camps for life without parole, or even marched into ovens like Auschwitz or something. Putting together the fact of these EO's, the "rumours" of FEMA detention camps. The conspiracy theories and films of proof to back them up is somewhat telling that something may be up. I'll put these links here. I can't seem to locate the one by the CIA agent explaining the red, blue and green zones. But FYI the red zone was a death sentence, the blue zone meant you were re-programable, and the green zone meant you were no threat. All I can say is damnifIknow what is up! I can tell you, I love my country, I defended the constitution and went where I was told. I also can't beieve that foriegn troops are being trained on our bases for reasons that are unknown. They are watching and don't think they're not! The Founders of this Nation absolutely did not trust the government and has encouraged us to NOT trust the government. Read the Declaration of Independence. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcnLtz-V0eQ And this one is scary as hell! They're ready to initiate facial recognition. He talks with an FBI agent early in this one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZoBWVWdvoCg&feature=related Also, have a look at some of the vids on the right that stack up. Most interesting!
  7. Well I did happen to look at the other two vids the fella had up there. He stressed the importance of food,water, shelter. I am not one to agree with him 100%. But he made several good points.
  8. Very much so OC. That's why I guess I was so compelled to post that link.

    Im back

    Good to see you back U.Wolf! As I said to you before, it takes time and is different and difficult for every individual. Again, my deepest sympathies and most sincere condolences to you and yours my friend. dr
  10. It kinda brought back some memories Matt. Don't guess I needed all the drama about it making me sick. That wasn't it. It was at an FOB, I was going to clean the swampa$$ off and Zzzipp, crack. It hit a wall. Don't know how close the small arms fire was but it wasn't my time. Needless to say, an ambush patrol was sent out. We had to clear the buildings adjacent. It's hell being shot at and you don't even know where it came from. It takes a minute to gain your senses after the rush.
  11. What's your sit/rep UWolf? Haven't seen you dude.

    Usually, if I get near the city (I hate the city) I'll pick up a few of these Tinder. http://www.harborfreight.com/catalogsearch/result?q=fire starters I try not to totally waste a trip. Never used any of them and probably have 2 dozen. I've seen them for as much as 7 or 8 dollars apiece. At 2 bucks each I hope they work! Guess I need to do a trial run with one.

    who is currenty reading what?

    I've read that Sonoran6, a little to much on the rambleing side for me. Yet if I start something, I'm going to see it through. I would not mind to be sitting at one of those bars on St Kitts when it's 10* this winter. Hehehe Another good read is "Lights Out". Also someone mentioned "One Second After" as being a good one. That's my next library book. I've not been to the city to hit Barnes and Noble since then. Did I say how much I hate going to the city. Hmmmm, I got someone who's very close to me a Nook. I think maybe I might borrow that.
  14. Under $40 bucks huh? Guess that's be my old everyday beater, Browning Medium Mountain TI. If I lose it, I've not lost much. $25 or $30 bucks. However, my favorite pocket knives are my good old "Made in the USA" Benchmades. 551 plain edge Griptilian and a little Aphid they don't make anymore.
  15. Sonuvabeach! Last 10yrs I've suffered from CRS now I'm just begining to wonder if ...... Worry? Bout what?

    The Final Insanity

    Whoosh!!!!!!!! That was that sucking sound of all the jobs going over seas that Ross Perot amazingly said would happen if NAFTA was signed. Didn't Clinton do that? I've not been able to stomach him since. Wonder who pulled that string? Dan you're so right! Tariffs import taxes whatever one chooses to call it, is no more. Go out of the country and build it, pay some schmoe $7 a week and send it back to the states with no import tax.

    Warning.

    One can use this link to the cdc and sign up for alerts if need be. Or just open this page and scroll down on the left side for recent outbreaks. Also the H3N2 variant virus is an interesting read in the outbreaks. Wifey says they have already had a case or two of flu where she works. I believe also she said they already have flu shots available. I just wondered why this early, but it takes up to six weeks to be effective. http://www.cdc.gov/

    Review Suggestion: Pull String Alarms

    That's why if the perimeter needs it, I have a half dozen driveway monitors in a box. Grant it, the deer round here may set them off but it's a necessity for early warning. They don't have to be used for the driveway. I've done a practice run by putting them on trees and checking the sensor transmitter distances, I'm good 360*.
