  1. I lived in Arkansas. I knew a couple former Walmart executives. They left because they were privy to the big picture. Walmart wants to run EVERYTHING! The plan took a majority hit in the 90s when they were denied becoming a bank. They wanted people to be able to deposit their paychecks to the Walmart bank and just use Walmart accounts to pay bills and do all their shopping. The real plan was to get all the welfare checks deposited to Walmart and make everyone dependent on them for payment of bills, food, medicine, optometry, dental, medical. As they ran every other retailer out of business.
  2. Clinton gutter the warriors from the officer corps. It has been progressively degraded from there.
  3. I worked a trap tournament today. 240 competitors. Corporate thing. My job was as an RSO and keep the houses filled between squads. Mostly experienced shooters but a few newbie’s as well. Saw some fun stuff. One girl dropped a shell and basically kicked it around in a circle as she bent over trying to pick it up. Action closed. Finger on the trigger. Gun parallel to the ground. Just spinning in a circle trying to pick up the shell she kept kicking. Sweeping everybody.
  4. But on the other hand, girls start wearing longer skirts. So, 6 months of that.
  5. Same here. I never want to need it. Sadly some tow truck drivers refuse to use them. If you need a tow to a shop they will insist on hooking to the suspension to drag you onto the flatbed.
  6. I’ve been contacted by two law firms wanting to represent me. I was never there. Correct time frame but I was west coast. Disgusting vultures.
  7. At the range today. BIG Wolf Spider. Good bug eater.
  8. Pretty good shot but the first arrow was a blunt.
  9. I went on a deprivation hunt about 1983. Sheep and lambs were being slaughtered. Almost all the lambs were gone. A few calf’s as well. Devastating for the ranchers. We thought it was coyotes. Turned out to be wild dogs. Mostly secondary generations of dogs thrown out into the Utah desert. Most were sick including rabies and had been starving. After killing enough lambs to eat well, they just went on a killing spree for fun. They had started out as pets but after a couple generations if inbreeding they started to look like those generic street dogs you see from Cairo to Hanoi. Yellow, flat hair, curled tail, 30-40 pounds. It was sickening. We killed every one we could. The rest were killed with poison bait. The state put them in a pit and burned them. Then covered it with dirt. We all wished we could have found the original owners who dumped them. You don’t dump a house dog in the western desert and expect it will be just fine hunting down jack rabbits. Cruel bastards needed hurting.
  10. In other news. Online sales of surpluses gun cases spike 12,000%.
  11. Hope you meant fish not driving up worms.
  12. High School Trap teams are growing fast. Especially popular with girls. This compact Winchester is the favorite gun for new trap shooters.
  13. BTW she is spending this morning in the office setting up the photo and computer. Then she gets to start training. Just means she won’t be home until about 9:00 tonight and will be over hours by Friday. Her boss is not happy.
  14. I was non-union on a large mostly union construction project. They couldn’t find union guys to do my job. I was disgusted about how much time was spent by the various unions “not working”. I mean actively spending time setting up situations where they could take more time off because they had created a situation that by union rules they couldn’t work. Electricians were the worst. They were not allowed to move my boxes to get to where they needed to work. So they would doctor the paperwork to make a work order to only be in a unit where I just had inventory delivered. 360 units need wiring but they only wanted to work in the 3-4 where they were not allowed to be because of my inventory. So they would just take another day off with pay. The project was over budget and over time. The cost just got passed onto the new owners. It was winter and they didn’t want to finish in the slow season. They drug it out until the spring construction rush had started.
  15. So my wife started a new job last week. Today her new computer and company phone were delivered to the house. She needs to be in the office tomorrow morning with the computer and phone charged and ready for a training day. She needs to be logged into both the phone and computer to set them up tonight. To log into the computer the very first time she needs to use an app on the phone. To log onto the phone she needs to use the phone to call for her temporary password to access the website to download the app to open the phone. As she can’t open the phone she used her personal phone to call the help desk to get the password. They won’t give it to her because she isn’t using a company recognized phone number. To open the computer she needs the phone. To open the phone she needs to already be in the phone. The weekend help line won’t help get in the phone because she isn’t in the phone. You know that old nursery rhyme song about the hole in the bucket? Yeah. Like that. Apparently this would not have been an issue if she had received the bundle on a weekday. Weekend rules are different. I told her to bring this to work tomorrow. Should work better.
  16. My wife doesn’t know about it yet. It is for her and my daughter to shoot. Maybe I can soften the blow by saying it is her Yom Kippur gift? I’m just glad I married a shooter.
  17. IIRC from my days as a teacher, Latino was native heritage, Hispanic was heritage from the Spanish. Some kids didn’t make a distinction and didn’t really care. Some got REAL uptight about it even though the difference was real hazy. I was always confused about it. To me they were just kids.
  18. The form I filled out today was electronic on a tablet. It asked gender. Choices were M, F or something else. I don’t remember if it was Other, unspecified etc. But there was a third choice.
  19. They said one more gun this year and I get free marriage counseling.
  20. I was just going to send her the money and let her do it all. But the gun fits my wife also. So I bought it. Different store. Used my military discount too. It’s mine, in my safe and they can shoot it whenever they want.
