Re: Not again!!!

The earth is curved. A ship will go from a peek over the horizon to on top of you in 12-15 minutes. One ship on a non- collision course can mask another. I don't mean to say somebody wasn't lax. Just that navigating a boat of any size requires a lot of vigilance. A lapse puts lives at risk, and it c...

I found a P250 on sale a couple of months ago. With my discount certificates, I got the gun for well under $300, new.

Re: Six Flags is history...

Six Flags has only dodged the question. They still call themselves Six Flags Over Texas, prejudicially ignoring the history of Coahuila y Tejas, one of the states of the Rio Grande Republic and one of the seven national flags to fly over Texas. It's time. Write Six Flags, call your Congressman. Elim...

You mean - gasp! - instead of flying just one symbol of privileged white oppression they now fly SIX of them?

Re: Back in the Saddle Again

I agree, big bucks. I got them because I would get a mild nerve pinch in my wrists after a few hours on the road. The stiffness of the Helibars was a nice side effect. You take the two independent halves of the stock bars off. The Helibars are a complete replacement. For less money you can install T...

Re: Pastor Wants Presidents’ Names Removed From Washington, Jackson Parks Over Ties To Slavery

What is sad is that people really believe the Civil War was just about slavery.

And will Huckleberry Finn, a book that should be recognized as an abolitionist's anthem, ever return to school libraries?

Re: Thank you tax payers

And thank you for being willing to shoot all that "free" ammo. I suspect your investment was sincere and more than balanced a few rounds of 5.56.

Re: "Safety Bullet"

Nobody has pointed out the best feature of this bold new idea. It doesn't just make your gun safe, if you buy the right gun, it makes your gun safe automatically! I don't know of any other product that can do that. Without any human intervention, your gun can render itself perfectly safe with these ...

Re: Sad judicial comedy in the offing

I was in a little bit of a hurry when I wrote that. The reported drunk is a member of the local school board, which adds a little community interest. Rumor has it he has a gun license, which adds to my disgust. My understanding is that he was a constant source of verbal abuse through his time in cou...

Sad judicial comedy in the offing

A motorist in Limestone County called the Sheriff to report a probable drunk driver at about 2 AM on August 2, heading westbound into Kosse on Highway 7. The Kosse PD waited for him. Good job on their part. A small town doesn't always have police available at 2 AM. As the reported vehicle approached...

Re: College Professor Freaks Out

Re: College Professor Freaks Out

It's been a long time since I was in a geography class, but isn't the history of national borders part of it? I don't get out much. Isn't true there are a lot more violent places than where Texas friendly is spoken, where strangers are usually friends you haven't met yet? Part of the landscape here ...
