Re: Will Obama be arrested for illegal spying on Trump campaign?

Look what happened in the 2018 election. The Dems took the House and ALL investigations there came to a screeching halt. If they take the White House in 2020, this investigation will cease too.

Re: Especially Texan: George Lawson Keene

I also grew up in Baytown, arriving in 1962 and leaving after high school graduation at Robert E Lee in 1968. I remember some Keene's but never heard this story.

Re: Property taxes

One of the "good" reasons to turn 65. The only property tax I pay is a MUD tax,and school tax with a much higher exemption percentage. I no longer pay hospital district, port of Houston, county taxes, etc. My tax bill was cut more than 50%. We have a farm in Burleson County with an Ag exemption. The...

Re: TX: How to dispose of your bump stops in Houston

The things are useless now unless the ruling is overturned. You can't take it to the range, farm, gun range. If you have it outside, there is always the weird chance that it may be seen and you be the test case. It will be pretty obvious to a nearby game warden that you are shooting "fully automatic...

Re: Should we abolish the Electoral College?

This seems to be a hot button of the Progressives. The underlying premise here is that the Great Compromise was a mistake, and that it is unfair to give less weight to the votes of Citizens in more populous states, which the current system does. But I hardly ever hear talk about the other part of t...

Re: Need a car? (Houston)

One option is Texas Direct Auto. They buy EVERYTHING. You might not get much but there are no future hassles. I gave a truck away to the church only to have multiple calls from the new OWNER. I wish I had sold it to one of these wholesale companies.

Re: Midland PD officer shot and killed. Edited

Go to Google Earth and look at 3306 Eagle Cove, Midland, Tx. It is a large home and it is very possible the shooter never heard the LEO announce "Police Officer" .

My sincere condolences to the murdered officers friends family and colleagues. At night homeowner shot at flashlight. I’m going to assume an elderly man. Who set his burglar alarm to Stay went to bed. Had doors unlocked and potentially not even latched. Alarm Company called the phone number when on...

Re: Anyone have this issue....

I carry a Glock 19 in an IWB holster and I put a spare mag in my left back pocket. Cheaper and easy to get to. One problem with this is dirt/lent in the mag. Just keep it clean.

Re: Texas City Independent School District

All for show. These shooting only last a few minutes. Some schools are shopping mall size. How fast can these guards run. Will they be running AWAY from the shooting to "retrieve a rifle". How fast can they unlock the vault. What if the shooting is taking place close to the vault. Again, all for show.
