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. I recommend the book "People's Republ...

Re: Dinesh D'Souza says recent riots and political unrest could lead to 'rise of citizen militias around the country'

This may be a stretch from the intent of this thread. I'm keying off "militia" The dark side of the word militia is the other groups who are pushing toward it. One of the pro-Democrats on my FB list posted this article yesterday. https://www.forbes.com/sites/tommybeer/2020/06/16/accused-killer-of-ca...

Re: The madness continues

The real madness is the media jumping up and down, claiming that the ER blocking didn't happen. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/la-hospital-protesters-block-police-er-shooting-compton-b434035.html And, of course, the article ends by blaming the President for trying to falsely link ...

Re: Protests - the next level?

https://unitedwildlifeunion.com/2020/08/01/why-white-people-owning-dogs-is-racist/ It is cultural appropriation for a European to own a dog. Two thoughts come to mind: 1. That the stupidest thing I have ever read, and I got through only the first couple paragraphs. I’m sure it got stupider, but I c...

Re: Interview with Cody Wilson

I listened to the whole thing. There are some interesting perspectives. I have several opinions on what I heard and even some strong reaction. But I'm not going to post them.

Re: Veteran Shoots himself on Facebook...

It is terrible. One of the kids that our daughter baby sat for came to his parents' home and used a gun to kill himself in front of them. I cannot image how someone could ever get over witnessing something like that. Just knowing about it has affected our daughter for years. But then I think of the ...

Re: TX: Boats sink on Trump boat parade in lake Travis

Looks like they got "swamped". Under the right circumstances that can happen in an instant. The picture makes it look pretty rough - was it windy or just a lot of boat traffic? Improperly anchored maybe? I’m with you. Looks like wakes got too big due to volume of boats and some got swamped. I’ve se...

Re: Hearing aid suggestions for my father.

I agree with the statement that hearing aids are not a one-size-fits-all solution. I tried several brands/types and they all failed for me the same way. Each provider told me that my hearing isn't bad enough yet for me to tolerate what their products did to me, not for me, and that I would be back w...

Re: Please do not take my name in vain.

Being a free market guy, I always have mixed emotions about these sorts of situations. I know that part of the problem with the availability of ammo is that the raw materials have gone scarce for a variety of reasons. Some of it is clearly governments doing it on purpose. Some of the rest was a by-p...

Re: Portland Murder an assassination?

Based on watching the victim's friend this evening on Tucker Carlson, i think there are a couple of big mistakes in the written captions. According to the friend, the puff of smoke was bear spray being discharged around the time the shots were fired. it isn't clear who did it. The cloud of smoke fro...

Re: IN: Pizza delivery driver kills robber, robber's accomplice kills driver

The girl committed a murder and was an accomplice to an armed robbery at the age of 17. She is beyond saving. Life without Parole is a fitting sentence or if tried as an adult, the death penalty. Maybe I'm becoming jaded, but since my grandfather's murder, I have little sympathy for murderers. :iag...

And Wisconsin Deep Blue Gov. Tony Evers has told President Trump he's not welcome in Wisconsin. Trump is scheduled to visit Kenosha this Tuesday, and Evers wrote him to ask him to stay away. Evidently Evers feels the protests are cathartic, and that they are helping Kenosha "overcome division and m...

Re: Nobody but NBC

I believe that Chicago is a product of its own corruption. That has been going on for more than 100 years. It blossomed during Prohibition. But it is probably worse now with the worst of the city being abandoned to gang rule. There was never a question in my mind that there was institutional racism ...
