Re: Israel Seals Off Last Hezbollah Terror Tunnel, The Largest Ever Discovered

Way back in WW1 tunnelers on each side used Stethoscopes to detect enemy tunnels and intercept them. They did this quite successfully. Surely today with more sensitive instruments it should be possible to detect digging at much longer distances and depths with even greater accuracy. Then having done...

Re: N.K. Leader fed Uncle to the dogs alive

Things are not so different than back in the 1930s. Dozens of lefty thinking libs like George Bernard Shaw and others returned from visits to Stalin's Russia saying how Uncle Joe had created a workers paradise that what so much better than depression riddled USA or Europe. What always puzzles me is ...

Re: UK: Are you extreme right wing (XRW)? Take the British Army test

I can see Civil Servants in the MoD and some senior officers going along with this scheme just to placate their political masters. Whether they really believe that most middle/junior rank officers and SNCOs will actually put this into operation I really don't know. Back when I was commissioned proba...

Re: Government regulation of social media?

As a hard line Libertarian, I am philosophically a free speech absolutist. In other words nobody private or government should be permitted to censor anything in any medium. How can a libertarian justify using force to regulate what a private newsletter can publish? I am not forcing what they can pu...

Re: Government regulation of social media?

In such a world tech companies would find them selves in court for trying to apply any sort of hate speech filter, regardless of it being from the left or right. Isn't this the whole conundrum? If tech companies own the medium, and we are free to use or not use or use our own, then they have the ri...

Re: You just got to love England

Story refers to the men as Asian. I guess Pakistan is in Asia. Although we Americans don't normally think of India or Pakistan as Asia, it is. Pakistan, officially the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, is a sovereign country in South Asia. It is perhaps worth mentioning that when people in the UK talk ...

Re: Whataburger "AR"

I like Whataburger, but, after all, they restrict OC, but are too sleazy to post 30.07. They want to appear pro-gun, but are willing to embarrass people who OC. :banghead: :iagree: so much - it makes them look like Hypercrytes! I still have the card that was handed to me by the manager last time I ...

Re: HB 2949 - Expedited Special License for Certain At-Risk Persons

I presume that these special at risk licence people will include all State and local politicians and officials (because their jobs make them a target :roll: ). Sounds like another way for a chosen elite to reinforce their privilege with a special licence which will end up being "Shall Issue" for the...

Re: Concord First Flight 2 March 1969

My father's brother worked on the Project at Filton near Bristol in the UK. He arranged for our family to have a tour of the plant in the spring of 68 where the UK built prototype 002 was nearing completion. It certainly got me much more excited about aviation developments. If you had told me then t...

Re: Do you ever open carry?

Open Carry is the norm for me. I generally only conceal when I know I am going somewhere where I have to cover up, which is generally the airport, either of our movie theatres, HEB and now after a recent experience I will have to include Whataburger. That said if the weather is bad then I will proba...

Re: George Soros warns Europe

I do so look forward to the AFD eventually throwing a wrench in the EUs works that it cannot recover from. I would be so entertaining to watch May, Cameron and all the other pro EU Brit politicians, watch the organisation they so wanted to remain a part of, fall apart in front of their eyes.

Re: UK: 3 Londoners killed or seriously injured by knife crime every day.

The policeman that got stabbed should have pulled his gun and shot the attacker! Oh wait they are so civilized in the UK that even the police don't carry guns! How civilized is a society when they allow the savages to do whatever they want? Reminds me of the Eloi and the Morlocks Eloi & Morlocks, g...

They should ban those high capacity matchboxes and institute background checks for every match purchase.
