Re: Report expired paper tags

Normal paperwork, and perhaps law enforcement, appears to be running a little slow these days. My registration sticker expired in the Spring. I got my inspection, but the tax assessor offices in Harris County are not open for business. Over the phone they told me to mail in proof of insurance, inspe...

Re: Ruth Bader Ginsberg - dies 9.18.2020

RIP, Ruth Bader Ginsberg. And may we see a Constitutionalist take a seat on the Supreme Court. Agree with both sentiments. And from a optics standpoint, I think the Left would have a harder time opposing Judge Lagoa (the Floridian Cubana and mother of three daughters). I think they are already gear...

Re: How the 2020 election could go wrong - Dems play wargames

I get the West Coast secession scenario, but why would there then be a civil war? Let them go. Liberals from other major cities could move to the new "Peoples Socialist Republik of Kalifornia" so they wouldn't even need a patchwork of territory scattered about. Radio talk show guy correctly suggest...

Help with clarification: applicant has bipolar disorder, successfully under treatment

So I know a nice young fella who has expressed an interest in getting his LTC. He has told me previously that he takes lithium for treating/controlling bipolar disorder. As far as I can tell from being around him, he seems perfectly normal. Is his condition a disqualification for getting an LTC, or ...

Re: What is the next Wide Scale Asset-Forfeiture?

By implementing a 7% to 10% excise tax on bank account assets, like they did in Cyprus some years back. https://www.marketplace.org/2013/03/18/ ... ed-cyprus/

Re: New reseach shows good guy with a gun wrong

"A new study found that states with looser concealed-carry gun laws have higher rates of gun homicide. The results also showed that higher levels of gun ownership are associated with more mass shootings. The study suggests the US could reduce gun violence by lowering levels of gun ownership and pas...

Re: Nazi’s removing statues in America after winning WW2

Will all the valid, non-slavery reasons behind the south's secession be erased... My reading of history suggests the Deep South cotton states seceded mainly over slavery... they pretty much said so in their convention debate records. Border states like Tennessee and Virginia seceded later, and prob...

Re: Kent State 50 Years Ago - Four Dead in Ohio

W/o 2nd 1st goes away I think was the jest. Agreed. But Kent State is a bad example to discuss First Amendment issues, too. The assemblies were not peaceful. There had been arson, looting, and violence. It was a disaster waiting to happen. That's why it's a better example for private citizens on ho...

Re: Kent State 50 Years Ago - Four Dead in Ohio

If anyone ever tells you "Only the government should have guns", ask them to describe what the government did with guns at Kent State University on May 4, 1970. Ask them if they'd be okay with history repeating itself. Ask them if they want to rewrite the Second Amendment would they also rewrite th...

Re: Coronapocalypse Projects & Pastimes

Having acquired whiskers, beeswax, and almond oil, I am fixing to manufacture and try out some homemade moustache wax.

I hope I still have a need for it when things return to normal. Right now I am unshaven at home under a special pandemic dispensation.
