  1. I couldn’t resist though. The Internet hasn’t helped my impulse control problem as much as I would have liked.

  2. I just got off the phone with my friend and colleague. She is spouting off the msm line. Called ivermectin horse dewormer. I told he I just had horse food this morning for breakfast, oats. Then she told me her friend had ketamine treatment for ptsd/depression, and I said, “Oh, you mean horse tranquilizer?”. I may have to write her off.

  3. A Simple Thought or Reflection. Twenty Years Ago Today, we watched as First Responders Raced into Two Burning Towers, Most Knowing it was to their Deaths. They did it because of a Calling to Help People and be of Service, and because of Brotherhood to each other. because of a Calling they shared they stood tall in an Inferno side by side to the End. and those that Survived Fought to find the Bodies for Months. We tend to Forget they Saved many more then they lost and Showed what Everyday Heroism looks like. we were United much more then Divided and resolute on the way Forward. That`s all, Nothing more than a Reflection. they were`nt Running away, or Leaving Fellow Americans to Fend for Themselves. May God Bless Them All. and they Rest In Peace.

  4. I just got a call and the gal on the line asks "Hello. Am I speaking with Gwalchmai Munn?" I said "Who inna hell wants to know?" Turns out she was a CS rep from a company I deal with, and that I like, but great googley, don't the teach these kids how to make a call? The proper way is "Hello, this is Mona Lisa Vito from Vito's Garage calling for Mr. Munn. Is he available?" And the last part can be done coyly for best effect.

  5. I need a break and will be gone for a while. Mentioned this a couple times in the past, I just suck up too many bad news, mainly political issues, and I simply can't deal with it in a controlled manner. Every time I read a thread on some bullshit the Dems are starting again, I read up on everything I can find online, become extremely irritated, and since I can't change any of that, I feel cornered, write hateful posts myself, and the day is ruined. And it all starts over on the next day. Obviously I can't tell others what to write, even though I kinda tried, so I have to remove myself from the sources of those constant bad news. I'm also cutting the line to my trading chat, which is also full with political issues, as well as the internet altogether. Sick and tired of being connected to so much negativity. I'll be spending much more time in my yard, working on the camper conversion, going to the beaches, watching 80s movies, doing trips within the state, and other projects. Positive projects where I can create something with my hands, instead of filling my mind with more bullshit. I'll be back one day, but for now I need a lasting break. Just wanted to let you guys know and not just disappear. PS: Always be the guard of your mind.

  8. David Chipman was the absolute worst choice for the head of the ATF and I doubt that they could find anyone less intelligent or more hostile to gun ownership by private citizens although I'm sure Biden will do his best to find another moron with the same "You don't need a AR15, Buy a Shotgun" mentality. Here's a quote from an article in Forbes about the Chipman nomination: "President Biden is about to nominate the most anti-gun zealot ever to head the 5,100-employee Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. By selecting Bloomberg toady David Chipman, an anti-gun activist who has worked for Gabby Gifford’s gun control group, Biden has just given a middle finger to America’s 150 million gun owners. Chipman isn’t your run-of-the-mill anti-gun Democrat, but rather he is especially condescending toward gun owners and screams contempt for them at every opportunity. He publicly ridicules gun owners, famously mocking, “…the people who hoarded guns might decide six months from now—once they see no zombies around but they’ve run out of tuna and beef jerky—that they need the money to buy food.” Never mind the fact that his counterparts in the Democrat party continue to beat the “defund the police” drum and have stood by as anarchists sack our cities with impunity." White House Plans to Withdraw ATF Pick David Chipman Sept. 9, 2021 11:34 am ET The Wall Street Journal WASHINGTON—The White House is planning to withdraw David Chipman ‘s nomination to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, according to people familiar with the matter, in the face of tepid support from centrist Democrats. The White House didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment. His confirmation would have required at least 50 votes in the evenly split Senate, with Vice President Kamala Harris breaking any ties. Mr. Chipman spent 25 years at the ATF before retiring as a special agent in 2012. Since then, he has served as an adviser to organizations that press lawmakers for stricter firearms regulations, including a group founded by former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D., Ariz.), where he is still employed. Ms. Giffords survived a shooting in January 2011. Second Amendment groups including the National Rifle Association and the National Shooting Sports Foundation lobbied against Mr. Chipman. Gun-control groups including Brady, Everytown for Gun Safety and others have advocated on the Hill for Mr. Chipman’s approval. Some centrist Democrats had expressed hesitations over some of his stances, which include advocating for a ban on assault-style rifles and expanded background checks. Republicans were expected to be united in opposition to the pick. “Mr. Chipman’s long record as a partisan, anti-Second Amendment activist raised plenty of concerns about how he’d administer federal firearms laws,” Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said in a statement Thursday.Mr. Chipman’s defenders said he had been unfairly smeared by the gun-rights lobby. “David Chipman was an eminently qualified nominee and a good man who has dedicated his life to public safety. That any Senator, let alone at least 51, would oppose his nomination points to the work of the gun lobby’s lies and misinformation,” said Kris Brown, president of Brady. Mr. Chipman’s pulled nomination also highlighted the polarizing politics around firearms on Capitol Hill. Mr. Biden’s gun-control agenda has languished in the Senate, where lawmakers have struggled for months to find a bipartisan compromise around expanding background checks. Mr. Biden has gotten most of his major nominees confirmed. One notable exception was Neera Tanden, who had been nominated to lead the Office of Management and Budget. Ms. Tanden had come under criticism for her past social-media comments, which included jabs at senators.

  9. First female aircraft carrier Commanding Officer has never taken off by catapult or landed by arresting gear. But she IS female, so she's good to go! If this isn't proof of the priority given to PC over readiness and capability, I don't know what is. https://news.usni.org/2020/12/23/first-female-nuclear-carrier-co-will-command-uss-abraham-lincoln Another FSC/IWP (tm) (Feminist Sacred Cow/Incompetent Warrior Princess, pronounced "Fiskwipp") is promoted solely for PC reasons, over more experienced and deserving men. Frankly, we deserve what's coming to us, for allowing this BS for so long. Our military is deeply infected with a fatal disease: Political Correctness. If we don't rip it out root and branch, the Chinese and/or Russians will eventually slaughter and enslave us.. Time grows short.

  13. The majority isn't silent, the majority is weak and playing along. As I said a couple days ago, without a critical mass willing to stand up for themselves, the path is paved for the long run. I don't see a way out of this for America. It needs to get really bad before enough people are willing to do anything about it. By that time the one party system is long established, with no arms left in public hand. Look at other countries that fell into the same trap. History repeats itself. Its the same weak human beings, just another location.

  14. I get these random facebook ads. Some of them are women's rights or other similar topics. Today I asked on a couple of them why is there world hunger if there are almost 4 billion women to make sandwiches. You should have seen the triggering when I said delusions don't change biology and reality.

  17. As in Messerschmitt ME(BF)-109 NAZI fighters. Messerschmitt made all sorts of things after the war, to keep their doors open. They made a 3-wheel tandem seat car too, that was basically a stretched fighter cockpit. Post-war Germans needed jobs and they needed cars.

  18. I figured the same Janice. I'm just so proud of those people who do serve it makes me swell up inside sometimes. Saturday night i slipped into the watering hole and shock hands with a young man who had USMC on his arm. He joined 20 years ago..today. I'm getting older. I never seem to stop being amazed at the young people who dedicate themselves to great things. I am so lucky, down right blessed, to know when I leave the job it won't be hard to find my replacement. A lot of good people have heard the voice....heard in Isaiah 6:8. Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

  20. Look closely at the video, at the 7: 04 mark, in slow motion. Deputy Thoman inadvertently DROPS HIS MAGAZINE out of his sidearm. He got on the mag release under the stress of the fight. He then has the presence of mind to move laterally to cover around his cruiser, reload his weapon, flank the attacker and perforate his sorry ass with a full mag dump to slide lock. He then seeks out his dropped mag, reloads efficiently, and scans for additional threats. His training and mindset allowed him to recover from a serious stress induced malfunction and prevail. Stuff happens. Stay in the fight.

  23. I got banned from a photography forum for being nice. It was for professional and very advanced amateur photographers. We could critique each other’s work. Some of the founders were just venomous in their criticism. I basically got the boot for not being an ******* to the new guys. Go figure.
