In my book, that negates any and all respect for his "service".


Bingo.

Re: Not watching the Superbowl

I'm done watching them and will never watch them again, even if they somehow apologize for the petulant, overpaid children on the field. The NFL _tolerated_ rampant disrespect to the country that feeds their engine. No thanks. Never again. I am also taking a pretty strong mindset to the sponsors of ...

Re: Crypto-currencies

[ I don’t understand your need to continue to disparage the financial/investment decisions made by people who see things different than you. It’s not your money and no one here is going to want you to save them if their investment goes bad. Amen. It's getting tiresome and non-contributory. Might I ...

Re: Crypto-currencies

Don't fool yourselves. China is the #1 miner of cryptocurrency. You don't kill your cash cows. ETH under 1K is a good buy price. Again, if you can't afford to lose the money, DON'T DO IT. Just like any other speculative investment. I'm kinda hoping BTC dips under 9K. If so, I will consider it a stro...

Re: Crypto-currencies

Carlson1 - please delete this thread; it's obviously run its course. I'll carry on doing my own thing and just shut my trap in the future. I dunno. I'm equally invested in ETH and consider my investment to already be worth the effort (3x the value now and rising). I thought the thread was worth dis...

You might want to rethink that statement once you understand how your money is "insured" by the FDIC.

Short version: You're going to be mighty disappointed if you think you're gonna get your money back.

Re: Crypto-currencies

It's only a profit when you sell. The question is.......... when do you sell? Still a Ponzi. Please refute the following then, take your time, I can wait: - There is no central benefactor, thus there is no "pyramid" structure. It is, in fact, the opposite. No single person or entity can s...

Re: Crypto-currencies

I wish I would have had the additional "play money" to buy more Ethereum. I still think it's a good price point to buy at, but I got in pretty early.

One time bump for price drop. Taking these off the "for sale" list by 12 January if they don't sell.

Re: OC Has Gun Taken Away

Open carrying is pretty much the dumbest thing possible in public environments where you don't know the people around you. You are telegraphing exactly how you're armed and where your firearm is at. I fully support the change in laws that support open carry, but doesn't change the fact that if you'r...

Re: CC/OC in city park at ticketed event

I dare you to open carry... :biggrinjester: No thanks. There's a non-trivial contingent of APD officers that are just aching to "make and example" of an open carrier (I would not doubt that the mayor would give them a bonus in their paycheck, regardless of the legality of their actions, a...

Re: CC/OC in city park at ticketed event

Resurrecting this thread. Just left the Austin Trail of Lights. Now they have an (illegal) 30.06 sign posted at the entrance. Who wants to (pointlessly) tell the city they’re not permitted?
