Harris County Judge - Use Taxpayer Funds to Cover Illegal Immigrant Service Fees

I was glad to move out of Bexar, I can't imagine being in Harris. "In a 3-2 party-line vote Tuesday, Harris County Commissioners approved a plan to provide legal services for illegal immigrants residing in the county, particularly for those facing deportation." https://thetexan.news/harris-county-ju...

Re: Waco TSRA Annual Meeting 2/28-29/2020. Who's going?

Well, I was so busy I did not get time to check in here before I left. I was in the brown hat taking ticket for Friday's dinner/auction and working the book table on Saturday. SIA I believe I saw you in the museum Saturday afternoon. Palidin is right about the museum, it's great. Those boys certainl...

Re: Finally licensed in WA

They could at least follow New Mexico's example and disallow just the under 21 licences.

As you get older and the calls of nature get more urgent, you may want to reconsider something that would slow you down....

Yeah. That's one reason I no longer have any button fly jeans.

Re: Firearm auction

Many, many years ago I went to a firearm auction. I think it was the city of Pasadena, TX. All police confiscated guns. Anyway I did my walk through, wrote down 5 or 6 that I had interest in and then sat down with my blue book of guns (pre internet). Auction started and these people went bonkers. P...

Re: Fort Worth's dollar store rules are Bloomberg nanny style!

"Food deserts" are a real problem. Poorer neighborhoods do not have access to HEBs, or other regular grocery stores, because they are usually miles away with no mass transit available, and many of those folks do not have their own transportation. So, they have to resort to fast food, convenience st...

I replied along the lines of "If a situat...

Re: Church Meeting on CHL Topics

The decision on whether to join a church safety team is a lot more than just "Am I willing to take another life?" I think the biggest doubt for most toters might be of actual training. Most of us understand that we lack the skills that are necessary to work as an efficient team. Training involves n...

Re: Flying to Colorado

In my travels I've found every airport is different. In San Antonio after checking the bag you must accompany a porter to a TSA checkpoint. In Indianapolis it's sent on through to a checkpoint in the back. One, don't remember where, has a TSA checkpoint right in the lobby where you check it in. Be f...

Re: Disney Plus Mandalorian series

This is the way! I've very much enjoyed the series. And the Star Wars franchise has always turned real firearms into blasters. Han Solo's blaster is a Mauser C96, the Stormtrooper blaster rifles are Sterlings, the Rebel blasters in Empire Strikes Back are StG 44s etc etc. I think it's fun playing i...
