FIREARM ACCESSORIES / Crimson Trace Laser for M&P Shield
« on: January 09, 2019, 05:49:46 PM »
I just upgraded to a Vidrian green instant on unit for my Shield. The CT is in good condition and lights up as it should. The first $100. takes it. PM me if you are interested. I'd do a trade for something of greater value. Otherwise,its cash and carry.

Politics, Gripes, Complaints / Latest Naval Interdiction
« on: December 31, 2018, 05:52:16 PM »
Boat Intercepted Off the Texas Coast





The Navy intercepted a boatload of people off the Texas coast today.



This placed the Navy in an awkward position as the boat was not heading to the USA , but towards Mexico and Central America



Another surprise finding was the people were white American retirement age seniors. Their claim was that they were trying to get to Central America or Southern Mexico as they wanted to return to the US as illegal immigrants. Then they would be entitled to far more benefits than they were receiving as legitimate American retirees.



It is believed the Navy gave them food, water and fuel and assisted them on their journey.



My wife and I are booking on the next boat out. Let me know if you want to join us.

Please send it on; if only to one person.

Politics, Gripes, Complaints / The Gravy Train
« on: December 02, 2018, 07:20:25 PM »
I doubt that Trump has anything to do with this, but I sure like the concept.

 

 

President Trump is against the “Congress Gravy Train! “

That is why so many of the Congress are retiring.

They hope to freeze their retirement as it stands.

 

This makes too much sense not to be passed on.

At least we can make our wishes known and hope.

 

I’m with Trump on this one and always will be. Trump is asking everyone to forward this Email to a minimum of 20 people, and to ask each one of those to do likewise.

 

In 3 days, most people in the United States will have the message.

This is why the idea should be passed around, regardless of Political Party.

 

The   Trump Rule’s Congressional Reform Act Of 2018:

 

1 – No Tenure / No Pension.  A Congressman / Woman, collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they’re out of office.  No more perks go with them.

 

2 – Congressman / Woman ( past, present & future ) participate in social security.

      All funds in the Congressional Retirement Fund move to the Social Security System immediately.  All future funds flow into the Social Security System, and Congress participates with the American People.  It may not be used for any other purposes.

 

3 – Congress must purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

 

4 – Congress will no longer vote themselves pay increases.

    Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

 

5 – Congress loses their current Healthcare System and participates in the same Healthcare System as the American people.

 

6 – Congress must equally abide by all the laws, they impose on the American people.

 

7 – All contracts with past and present Congressman / Woman are void.

The American people did not make these contracts with Congressmen / Women.

The Congress made all these contracts for themselves.

 

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career.

The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators should serve their terms, then go home and go back to work, and not get all kinds of freebies!

 

If each person contacts a minimum of 20 people, It will only take 3 days for most people in the United States to receive this message. It’s time for us to take action now!

A friend of mine told me about this video yesterday. I was done by some activist group, but the concept is not too far fetched. Other than the 3 grams of C4, most of the hardware and software is pretty obtainable by a high school or college student today. Pretty scary concept!

Politics, Gripes, Complaints / Separated Children Hubub
« on: June 19, 2018, 05:36:42 PM »
All the past week we have been inundated with the horrors of the poor children being ripped from their parents, as if it's a permanent situation. Yet with all the coverage you would think someone would report how long these kids will be detained. So how long do these kids have to suffer, at taxpayers expense?
My research says 3 to 20 days. None of the media seems to care but after about an hour of Internet searches NPR coughed up the facts. So what is all fuss?
Yes being separated from parents can be traumatic, but think what they have been experiencing for the prior months and years. With their parents, were they getting 3 hots and a cot, an air-conditioned roof over their heads, TV, video games, karate lessons and a relatively safe environment? I'll bet some of the kids think that they have scored summer camp.
Tipical for the media, liberals, RINOS, churches etc, everyone is getting emotional about something that is more of an inconvenience than a moral crisis.

The Food Stamp program is administered by the US Dept of Agriculture. They proudly report that they distribute free meals and food stamps to over 45 millions people on an annual basis.

Meanwhile the National Park Service, run by the US Dept of Interior, asks us, "Please do not fee the animals" Their stated reason for the policy?

"The animals will grow dependent on the handouts and never learn how to take care of themselves."

This concludes today's lesson. Any questions?

Charles Krauthammer:  Interesting take on President Trump

To my friends "of a different persuasion" I'm not trying to sell anything or anyone but I do feel this is an interesting take on our very controversial president who I truly believe is not Republican or Democrat.
 
A TAKE ON DONALD TRUMP

A different take on Donald Trump:  (a non-political agenda)
 
 
Trump Is Not A Liberal or Conservative, He's a "Pragmatist."
 
(Definition: A pragmatist is someone who is practical and focused on reaching a goal. A pragmatist usually has a straightforward, matter-of-fact approach and doesn't let emotion distract him or her.)
 
"We recently enjoyed a belated holiday dinner with friends at the home of other friends. The dinner conversation varied from discussions about antique glass and china to theology and politics.
 
At one point, reference was made to Donald Trump being a conservative, to which I responded that Trump is not a conservative.
 
I said that I neither view nor do I believe Trump views himself as a conservative. I stated it was my opinion that Trump is a pragmatist. He sees a problem and  understands it must be fixed. He doesn't see the problem as liberal or conservative, he sees it only as a problem. That is a quality that should be admired and applauded, not condemned. But I get ahead of myself.
 
Viewing problems from a Liberal perspective has resulted in the creation of more problems, more entitlement programs, more victims, more government, more political correctness, and more attacks on the working class in all economic strata.
 
Viewing things according to the so-called Republican conservative perspective has brought continued spending and globalism to the detriment of American interests and well being, denial of what the real problems are, weak, ineffective, milquetoast, leadership that amounts to Barney Fife Deputy Sheriff, appeasement oriented and afraid of its own shadow. In brief, it has brought liberal ideology with a pachyderm as a mascot juxtaposed to the ass of the Democrat Party.
 
Immigration isn't a Republican problem, it isn't a Liberal problem, it is a problem that threatens the very fabric and infrastructure of America. It demands a pragmatic approach not an approach that is intended to appease one group or another.
 
The impending collapse of the economy wasn't a Liberal or Conservative problem, it is an American problem. That said, until it is viewed as a problem that demands a common sense approach to resolution, it will never be fixed because the Democrats and Republicans know only one way to fix things and the longevity of  their impracticality has proven to have no lasting effect.
 
Successful businessmen like Donald Trump find ways to make things work, they do not promise to accommodate.
 
Trump uniquely understands that China's manipulation of currency is not a Republican problem or a Democrat problem. It is a problem that threatens our financial stability and he understands the proper balance needed to fix it.
 
Here again, successful businessmen like Trump who have weathered the changing tides of economic reality understand what is necessary to make business work, and they, unlike both sides of the political aisle, know that if something doesn't work, you don't continue trying to make it work hoping that at some point it will.
 
As a pragmatist, Donald Trump hasn't made wild pie-in-the-sky promises of a cell phone in every pocket, free college tuition, and a $15 hour minimum wage for working the drive-through at Carl's Hamburgers.
 
I argue that America needs pragmatists because pragmatists see a problem and find ways to fix them. They do not see a problem and compound it by creating more problems.
 
You may not like Donald Trump, but I suspect that the reason some people do not like him is because:
 
(1) he is antithetical to the "good old boy" method of brokering backroom deals that fatten the coffers of politicians;
 
(2) they are unaccustomed to hearing a president speak who is unencumbered by the financial shackles of those who he owes vis-a-vis donations;
 
(3) he is someone who is free of idiomatic political ideology;
 
(4) he says what he is thinking, is unapologetic for his outspoken thoughts, speaks very straightforward using everyday language that can be understood by all (and is offensive to some who dislike him anyway) making him a great communicator, for the most part, does what he says he will do and;
 
 (5) he is someone who understands that it takes more than hollow promises and political correctness to make America great again.
 
 
Listening to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders talk about fixing America is like listening to two lunatics trying to "out crazy" one another. Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Marco Rubio are owned lock, stock, and barrel by the bankers, corporations, and big dollar donors funding their campaigns. Bush can deny it, but common sense tells anyone willing to face facts is that people don't give tens of millions without expecting something in return
 
We have had Democrats and Republican ideologues and what has it brought us? Are we better off today or worse off? Has it happened overnight or has it been a steady decline brought on by both parties?
 
I submit that a pragmatist is just what America needs right now. People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance, but that is common among those who have never accomplished anything in their lives (or politicians who never really solved a problem, because it's better to still have an "issue(s) to be solved," so re-elect me to solve it, (which never happens) and those who have always played it safe (again, all politicians) not willing to risk failure, to try and achieve success).
 
Donald Trump put his total financial empire at risk in running for president and certainly did not need or possibly even want the job; that says it all. He wants success for the U.S. and her citizens because he loves his country!

Notice how quick the old boy drew his weapon and was ready for combat. He tripped a bit, but recovered quickly and completed the task at hand.

 

Don’t need bullet proof glass windows - - - just an old cop, soldier, or former Marine who is not afraid to engage the criminal and NOT worry about the liability.  This is what gun control is really about.  You control the criminal situation with a gun.

Facts to ponder
Randy


 In 1865, a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States.

In 1881, a left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, President of the United States - who later
died from the wound.

In 1963, a radical left wing socialist shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President of the United States.

In 1975, a left wingradical Democrat fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the United
States.

In 1983, a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan, President of the United States.

In 1984, James Hubert, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 22 people in a McDonald's restaurant.

In 1986, Patrick Sherrill, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 15 people in an
Oklahoma post office.

 In 1990, James Pough, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 10 people at a GMAC office.

In 1991, George Hennard, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 23 people in a Luby's cafeteria in
Killeen, TX.

In 1995, James Daniel Simpson, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 5 coworkers in a Texas laboratory.

In 1999, Larry Asbrook, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 8 people at a church service.

In 2001, a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, President of the US.

In 2003, Douglas Williams, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people at a
Lockheed Martin plant.

In 2007, a registered Democrat named Seung - HuiCho, shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech.

In 2010, a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner, shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords
and killed 6 others.

In 2011, a registered Democrat named James Holmes,
went into a movie theater and shot and killed 12 people.

 In 2012, Andrew Engeldinger, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people in
Minneapolis.

In 2013, a registered Democrat named Adam Lanza, shot and killed 26 people in a school in Newtown, CT.

As recently as Sept 2013, an angry Democrat shot 12 at a Navy ship yard.

 Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns. Not one NRA member, Tea Party member, or
Republican conservative was involved in any of these shootings and
murders.

SOLUTION: It should be illegal for Democrats to own guns. We don't need
gun control, we need Democrat control.

Guns don't kill people, Democrats do!

I ran across this on another site. I am not sure about the validity yet, but it kind of explains why that Sherri's deputy didn't do his job.

He Fights….
by Evan Sayet
July 13, 2017

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I'm not bothered by Donald Trump's lack of decorum. They ask if I don't think his tweets are "beneath the dignity of the office." Here's my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized "collegiality" as John McCain? We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same. This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

I don't find anything "dignified," "collegial" or"proper" about Barack Obama's lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party. I don't see anything "dignified" in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don't see anything "statesman-like" in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was "articulate" and "polished" but in no way was he in the least bit "dignified," "collegial" or "proper."

The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the '60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale. It has been a war they've fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today. The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety. With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America 's first wartime president in the Culture War.

During wartime, things like "dignity" and "collegiality" simply aren't the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming. Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today. Lincoln rightly recognized that, "I cannot spare this man. He fights.."

General George Patton was a vulgar-talking, son-of-a-bitch. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.

Trump is fighting. And what's particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel's, he's shouting, "You magnificent bastard, I read your book!" That is just the icing on the cake, but it's wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he's defeating the Left using their own tactics. That book is Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals' war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton's senior thesis. It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.

Trump's tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after "the fake media" — and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri — Trump isolated CNN. He made it personal.

Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as "the most powerful weapon of all." ... Most importantly, Trump's tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. ... They need to respond. This leaves them with only two choices. They can either "go high" (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery. The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve.

It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive. Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama's close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright's church. Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration's weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration's cover-up.

So, to my friends on the Left — and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be "collegial" and "dignified" and "proper"? Of course I do. These aren't those times. This is war. And it's a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years. So, say anything you want about this president - I get it - he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don't care. I can't spare this man. He fights for America!
