Re: Memorial Day

For my family, Memorial Day is a day to remember our fallen soldiers. Sure, we have the swimming, the BBQ, and the rest, but each Memorial Day starts at the Houston National Cemetery with a backpack full of American flags. We visit our four MoH recipients, visit a handful of family friends, and the ...

Re: Seattle WA: 9-0 vote to tax largest employers to help homeless

This is good for Texas,therefore I like it. Fools with exorbitant tax rates chasing companies here. Texas remains at the forefront of agriculture, energy, defense, and semiconductors. Getting more transplants from CA and WA can't hurt. Until they enter the ballot box, and vote for the same leftist ...

Would that also qualify him to be allowed to apply for a LTC?

Best comment on the article:

Re: The Boy Scouts are now officially history

Eagle class of ‘85 here... The Boy Scouts served us well - teaching boys to become men. Unfortunately, they have lost their way. Lord Baden Powell would be disappointed in what has become of his organization. Anyone who disagrees with this statement should read some of his own words: https://filesto...

Re: The "I am a marine not a soldier"

Li'l Miss Vol Texan has known since about age five that there are five types of people in the military, "Jarheads, squids, flyboys, coasties...and soldiers like my daddy was." But she also learned very early on that such names were just a characteristic of inter-service rivalries, and every one of t...

Re: Why We Are Losing the Fight for the Second Amendment and What We Can Do About It

It’s quite another thing when you are speaking with someone who is a deliberately mendacious cretin, like a David Hogg or Shannon Watts - who are two of the most intellectually dishonest people walking the planet. I won’t waste my breath on people like that. It is their religion, and to even consid...

Re: Curious as to what the instructors/“experts” carry?

Any instructor who tells you that you should carry a certain type/caliber/style is either too lazy to explain how to make an appropriate decision or too egotistical to accept that his way isn't the best way and that shooting is a highly individual thing.
