I hope you're wrong. I did NOT leave NY to come to TX just to end up in the same kind of crap I left behind.
FWIW, Hillary got 44% of the Texas votes in 2016.
We're looking over the edge of the abyss.

Re: Another Meme Thread

I never understood using "Front". You know some Dim Bulb is gonna ask which side is the front. "This Side" would be clearer. No? :confused5 Same here, I've always questioned that. Saying "front towards enemy" implies that it's the other side. Like when you walk up to a door and a sign says "use fro...

Re: TX: Chambers County Woman killed by feral hogs

I've been around a lot of hogs. I've trapped a few hundred of them, and hunted a killed a lot more. It does not surprise me that this happened. The hog population is growing, and they are moving closer and closer to residential areas in their search for food. I have a friend who took video of hogs ...

Re: Any bank recommendations?

Yep, Chase here. Never saw a sign posted. It's also good to have Chase branches everywhere you go, especially if you're out of town and need access to your account or a money order or something. I was recently stuck in downtown Houston need a $6 money order right NOW. Wells Fargo wouldn't give me on...

Re: After Virginia win, Bloomberg groups targeting Texas

They are going to probably make good on it too. We're basically a purple state right now. O'rourke came what 3% away from winning the senate race. How many judges did we see go blue, and we had a congressional district flip blue, and zero flip red. They won't take the entire state, but they'll win ...

Re: No place but Mexico

The drug cartels have more money than God. They can buy anything they want from the same underworld arms suppliers that supply many gorilla groups. Those fellows are using full auto weapons along with frag grenades. There is no real need for supplies from America. True. The big cartel bosses are al...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

Watch the cross - notice the DA's approach, and again, something to keep in mind if you're ever on trial for shooting somebody. He kept repeating "you COULD have..." You COULD have taken cover, and she answered "I could have." You COULD have called for backup... and so on. So he paints a picture of ...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

This is 30 minutes, but it's worth watching if you're interested. It shows the prosecution introducing the case to the jury. Pretty damning, before the trial even starts. One other thing useful about this video: if you ever end up in court for a self defense shooting, this gives you a taste of what ...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

I just have a hard time with her not understanding she was on the wrong floor and wrong apartment. Other aspects of the case notwithstanding, this is completely understandable. I've made this mistake myself in the past, in apartments and hotels where all the floors, hallways, doors, etc. are identi...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

Did she walk INTO the apartment and shoot, or did she shoot him when he answered the door? Lots of contradicting details here. She said the door was open, but those steel fire doors automatically shut, tight as bank vaults. And if the door was open, why was she, according to neighbors, yelling "let ...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

Another thought, I thought this was manslaughter, if there were no other facts that came out to contradict the story that she mistakenly entered that apartment. It makes me wonder if how that was presented was not believed by the jury. If they didn't believe that then I'm curious what was believed ...

Re: Officer Invades Apartment, Shoots Resident

There is certainly a race component in this case, no question about it. I was watching the prosecutor yesterday; he was blaring into the cameras, "This is for Michael Brown!" "This is for Eric Garner!!" "This is a victory for all black people!!!" It reminded me of the cheering when O.J. Simpson was ...
