Less Lethal

Recommended Posts

Von, do you think I don’t know? Of course I know! We are all over six feet tall in case the boat sinks, we can walk ashore. BTW, unsurprisingly, I am 6’ 2” so I could go out a little further from shore. Heck, I think I have said all the jokes about the Coast Guard. Trivia - Popeye was a Coastie and NOT a Navy sailor. We only accuse him of being in the Navy because no Coastie worth his salt would chase Olive Oil anywhere! (Sorry Navy)


Malcolm, we had shorter guys in the Coast Guard but that was so we had something with which we could close holes in the hull.



ROFL...Just checking. I always knew the little guys were good for something just never could figure out what.


Not to argue to much, but I think Popeye was actually in the merchant least in the early cartoons. Later ones showed him in his cracker jacks and a few showed him on warships.


As far as Olive Oil went, the best take I ever saw on that was a recruiting poster/cartoon in Rolling Stone back in the 70s where the army used Popeye as a reason to join the army instead of the navy. If I can find it I'll post the link...think you'd enjoy it.

When I first graduated from the police academy in 1976, we still called burglars who entered an OCCUPIED structure, a cat burglar, hot prowl, because those suspects, got off on the thrill of hitting the place with people present.

I only made it to one burglary-in-progress with the suspects still on scene, it was rough, for both the victims and the suspects. I personally do not adhere to warning shots of any kind, nor will I EVER go "searching" my home looking for suspects, that is precisely what the family canine patrol is for.(GSDs)

We have pretty decent insurance, and should they get past the alarm system and the multiple roving patrols, they still will not find the Safe. If they set foot on the stairs to try and come up to engage the family members, then they have willingly chosen to have happen to them,what will happen to them. I sleep well at night as well.

Do everything you can to avoid violence, including running away or fast talking if practical.


If you have to defend yourself, go for the jugular, attack with your most lethal option and don't stop until they can not attack you again. Paintball will just piss them off and throws away surprise. If you drive them off with a paintball they will come back at night and light your house on fire, then shoot you as you come out.

    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon. This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
