Re: Stimulus checks

Being furloughed for two weeks. The $3k almost covers one week’s pay. So I’m paying bills and groceries.

Re: Do Springs Take a Set if the Striker is pre-cocked/the hammer cocked?

All materials experience stress relaxation. This is the decay of stress with time. When there stress developed in the material due to deflection decays, the strain becomes permanent. When strain is permanent, then force of spring is deceased. We know this for example, is an issue in metal spring en...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19)( SARS-CoV-2) from China: Its going to be bad.

https://youtu.be/fgBla7RepXU Basic math. The response has to be a local response. He proved that point. No sense in shutting down a region when their local rates are not climbing and their capacity is nowhere near challenged. This is why counties & states need to take ownership of the responsibilit...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19)( SARS-CoV-2) from China: Its going to be bad.

I hope Trump has the guts to stand up to them. He said earlier that he "wants the bill signed today." If he caves and gives the socialists what they want, he might find people won’t vote for him in November. More suffering now and in the weeks to come is better than living with the consequences of ...

Homemade smoker build. Reverse flow. Designed by me utilizing some online tools for proper cook chamber sizing, firebox sizing & exhaust stack sizing. Lots of work. Not perfect. First time welding. Granted I started this before this corona nonsense.

Total Rumor.... I heard. Mandatory shut down of all business except essential for 2 weeks on Monday. Whether true or not, doesn’t really matter to me at least. I’ve been working from home all week. After two days, I realized I hadn’t even stepped out of the house. I’ve had to make a conscious effor...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

......There is an old military saying that once is bad luck, twice is a coincidence, but three times is enemy action. These claims make me wonder if some people are not taking advantage of this virus to attack our economy and way of life. I am particularly concerned when i see media reports of the ...

Re: Santa Fe ISD Guardian Program Approved

It’s a shame that schools wait until they have blood in the halls to take these types of actions. There are no lessons learned by other districts.

Re: Bump stop ban signed today

statements made with respect to accuracy or necessity of bumpstocks is of the same rationalization as saying we only need firearms for hunting, in my opinion. the owning of a bumpstock isn’t dependent on its usefulness, it’s a matter of constitutional rights. if that right is infringed by laws or or...
