Re: Petition to save the Alamo Cenotaph

Read this over at WRSA. https://orthosphere.wordpress.com/2018/01/16/forget-the-alamo/ As I explained some time back, in the early stages of the great erasure of Confederate monuments, modern iconoclasm works by converting shrines and relics into mere historical artifacts. This method of the modern...

Re: Today 20 years ago in Clinton's Presidency

Some of my in-law's extended family farm in Arkansas. According to them, Billary spent a couple of decades doing to the state what they later did to the nation, so the K.K. actually had a 35 or 40 year run...... :-(

Re: Hawaii: False alarm on missile strike was Trumps's fault

3rd Option: it was an intentional bogus alert to make population of Hawaii recognize how unprepared they are if NK really does fire a missile at them......and encourage them to prep and get their act together. Yeah, I don't believe that one either; it's far too logical and selfless an act for politi...

Re: Hawaii: False alarm on missile strike was Trumps's fault

The Annoyed Man wrote:You’re correct that it was done by a Hawaiian state agency, but the alert was no accident. Apparently, it required a 2-step authentication to initiate it, so the act was deliberate. But blaming Trump? That’s just weak sauce.


So somebody hit the wrong button TWICE? :evil2:

Re: So many unanswered questions.....

They don't have Meza in custody, but they already had what appear to be mug shots to provide to the media..... I'm guessing that irrespective of the HEB incident, Meza was already a prohibited person (from possessing a firearm) and that Rivera's charges stem from failing to report a prohibited perso...

Re: So many unanswered questions.....

Given that they apparently don't have the gun carrier, how do we even know that the gun fired from being dropped. All we really know is that a round was fired inside the store....... Is the 'drop' part Fake News; or does it imply that there was a witness or that they looked at the security camera fo...

Re: More armed and unarmed violence in gun free Chicago

He's running for the Attorney General slot on the Democrat ticket, and he doesn't have enough political clout to get a ccw, and is naive enough to flash expensive consumer goods in a city park? I'd love to see what that retired Chicago cop's blog sez about this incident. "rlol"

Re: Blind student

Putting on my devil's advocate hat for a moment... :evil2: With the dems/progressives already claiming "it's easier to buy a gun than a book", I'd really cringe if they were literally able to say "a blind person can get a Texas LTC" and have a precedent to point to. Of course, th...

Re: Petition to save the Alamo Cenotaph

When I saw the petition and noticed it was on a website for someone running for office I decided to check to see how much truth was being portrayed. When I was redirected off Facebook and saw the root url, I thought it was somewhat odd as well. I was already familiar from other sources about the pl...
