There are quitea few who won't vote for him again based on 2a , but will still hold a GOP Senate and probably house also.

Will that regain our RTKABA and other rights. Nope. It will still be death by a thousand cuts until a 3rd party takes over or enough patriots say enough is enough.

I understand what you're saying but I don't think there will ever be a successful civil war that would restore our country to what we were originally.
There aren't enough people who would want to resort to a civil war, even if they agree with the principle of it.

You live in a fairly rural area, at least I think you do from other things you've said. You are probably surrounded by friends and family who have similar ideas. However, you and other people who think a civil war would be successful are a minority and you're too spread out to be effective. IMO what would happen is that there would be multiple "Ruby Ridge" incidents where the rebels would be holed up for awhile and eventually have to either give up or be killed off. I live in WV, a state you'd think would packed with liberty minded people but until 2016, Democrats ran this state for 60 years. Now those Democrats are turning into Liberal Democrats and the fight is on.

Don't get me wrong here, I agree with you that we need a big re-set in our government but the only way I see that happening is to vote in good, Conservative people who understand the Constitution. Trump saved us from absolute disaster when he beat Hillary. He has to win again in 2020 because Biden would be as bad if not worse than Hillary. Not only is he for all the Liberal garbage with the economy and social programs, he's dumb to boot.

In 2024 we can win again with a candidate like Ted Cruz or whoever comes on the scene with strong Constitutional principles; but Trump was the only candidate in 2016 with the force of personality and energy to beat the Clinton machine.

I want to see Trump hand over this country with a healthy economy to the next Conservative who can build on that to get our liberty restored. I don't think he'll do any damage to the 2A in the mean time. As Hammer said, it isn't going to happen overnight, but it CAN happen if we hold strong. First priority is to get Trump reelected. "

Siam created the thread Lovin my new DJI Mavic Air Drone!.
" I have had drones before. Nothing fancy. Simple things that were under 150 bucks. A couple of months ago I decided to spend the money on a more sophisticated drone with cool photography abilities. My wife and I travel a lot and we wanted to be able to take cooler images than a regular camera or cell phone.

I unpacked it last month but never really had the time to play with it. I was using it yesterday and this morning and it is awesome! Not for everyone of course. The capabilities are really cool. You can use hand gestures to "frame" your image. You can have it follow you (like if you are hiking, running, horseback riding). And tons of other features.

I actually almost lost track of it this morning as I was flying it down a stream and when I turned it around (I thought I did a 180, I did about a 135) I ended going up another bifurcation in the stream Long story short, I was about to hit the "Return Home" button but realized I had the real-time map on the display. So I was able to fly it back home.

One thing the gubermint did recently was actually a bonus for drone operators. If you fly in class A,B,C,D,E airspace you had to file for approval. I hardly thought anyone bothered. THey either did not fly or flew illegally.

Through and app, you can get real-time authorization from the FAA. It takes like 10 seconds. So if a LEO stops you, you can say that you do have FAA approval. You still need to make sure you are in compliance with local laws though. "

I think it is best to let it come to a head. Let a radical Dem come into office. It might spark a Civil War of sorts or a revolution. A gradual change will not spark anything since 30 years from now, those 30 year olds will assume this is how it should be.

Parents of a buddy and his wife lived out in the hills, decades ago, and they lived in the river valley with stellar soil and a great (huge) veggie garden. Grew everything. Zucchini as big as an adult human's leg. Pumpkin as wide as you can spread your arms. Herbs galore. They had heavy-gauge "chicken" wire fencing put up, and buried so far into the ground that they thought deer couldn't cope with it. The never did witness deer vaulting over the fencing, but that was the only thing that could explain no breaks in the wire, no uprooting of the wire, but decimated crops. It was fencing about ~9ft tall, or thereabouts. Either that, or the dang dear brought ladders and a good sense of humor. Was either UFOs ... or deer. Invariably, they'd find deer tracks the next morning, and another 5% of the crop eliminated.

It could have been raccoons. I have a friend who put deer cams around his property and saw raccoons climb over fences and raid not only his gardens but the chicken coops too. He lost a lot of chickens before he was finally able to send the Raccoons to their great reward in the sky. "

" Awwww...I'm sorry to hear about the demise of Gramps garden. It's very disappointing when you've babied it along and see it getting so close. I've never successfully grown anything here, too many deer, rabbits, raccoons and ground hogs. I've tried tomatoes several times but they just get eaten by the critters before they are ripe enough to pick. This year a friend gave me a tomato plant and I put it in a pot. I did actually get two tomatoes off of it before the deer found it.

I figure it just isn't meant to be and that's why God gave us Farmer's Markets. "

" That's really concerning. Not only are the criminals getting more savvy, like this guy who may have used make up to cover his facial tattoos for the robbery, but photoshopping can completely change the evidence.

I rarely agree with anything the ACLU has to say, but I agree with this:

“Law enforcement took these photos of a defendant who did not match the description of eyewitnesses, and then altered the photo to more closely match the witness description,” said Mat dos Santos, the legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon. “If you can’t do a good photo lineup, the answer is not to change the photos; the answer is a photo lineup just shouldn’t be done.

" I had a nice pineapple plant in my back yard when I first moved into our house. One day I looked out and it was gone! I went out t look and it had been gnawed off cleanly at the ground. I suspect the many rabbits we had at the time.. I've never seen a deer around here, peacocks, bobcats, turkeys, rabbits, etc., but no deer.

The previous owner of my house in WA had beefsteak plants in the backyard. I was never much of a tomato person (They ain't right inside), but these things were huge and absolutely delicious! One slice would hang over the sides of the biggest hamburger buns. There was more than I could ever eat, so each week I'd take a grocery bag or two into work. They would all disappear in an hour.

Best thing was, the plants would grow back as soon as the snow melted each year. I also had so many zucchini growing I couldn't give all of them away. "

How long will the charge last after I expose it to a lamp?
Only charge it if you need the maximum afterglow.
Like when you perform a safety check of your premises.

Glow-On always glow, as long as you have darkness and this is very important; As long as your eyes are adapted to the dark.
If not, just flash the product for a couple of seconds.

During the day hours, the product will charge in a fraction of a second if you must enter a building.
Even if you keep your gun under a jacket, in a holster.

We use the product extensively in our homes, especially the film. On dorr frames corners etc. You never have to charge it at all, it always glows.


This is the shortest tutorial ever.

" Poor Gramps!

A few months ago I bought a couple butternut squash and Gramps decided he would plant some of the seeds. he did that in the "garden" strip along side of our garage. The other things that are there are flowers. He had a very nice, thriving, squash plant.....his vegetable garden!

Then a couple weeks ago there were still the vines with some leaves and a FEW flowers, but a lot of naked stems where leaves and/or flowers had been. We have a couple good size (around 15" diameter) chicken wire cages that he made a few years ago for some flower pots when I was growing Swiss Chard in pots, so he got one out from under the condo and put it around his squash plant. Yes, it has a top on it.

Yesterday morning he drove in coming home from the gym and saw the cage laying in the middle of the side yard. OH OH. The squash plant is gone - right down to the roots.

What kind of critter could/would do that?

Could a deer catch it on an antler and flip it up and out to eat the whole plant?

Do Rackity Coon Chil'n eat whole plants?

It would have to have been a mutant ninja bunny to move that big cage.

Any other ideas?

And, NO, I never did get that game camera I was thinking about, but in any case I would not have had one along side of the garage where there are no doors or windows.

I was rooting for Gramps and his plant, thinking we might actually have a small squash to eat before the frost came. All gone now. "

" I believe that should one of the current Dem candidates won the presidency, " no chance of that btw" , It will trigger an all out civil war when the Fed tries to turn the nation socialist or communist.

It's likely Trump will win if he isn't primaried out by a truely good GOP candidate.

There are quitea few who won't vote for him again based on 2a , but will still hold a GOP Senate and probably house also.

Will that regain our RTKABA and other rights. Nope. It will still be death by a thousand cuts until a 3rd party takes over or enough patriots say enough is enough. "

A verbal argument with one party , the GF, is not an "altercation ".
Nothing was said too the BF who violently attacked the shooter. And it's plain to see he was,not " fleeing " but only stopped and took one step back when a gun was drawn.

It'll be what it'll be. I'm guessing a series of appeals based on judging a case based on after the fact knowledge that the shooter could not have therefore violating the statute. "

" A preacher was looking for a good used lawnmower one day. He found one at a yard sale that Little Johnny happened to be manning.
“This mower work, son?” the preacher asked.
Little Johnny said, “Sure does, just pull on the cord hard, though.”
The preacher took the mower home and when he got ready to mow he yanked and pulled and tugged on that cord. Nothing worked. It wouldn’t start.
Thinking he’d been swindled, he took the mower back to Little Johnny’s house. “You said this would work if I pulled on the cord hard enough.”
“Well,” Johnny said, “you need to curse at it sometimes.”
The preacher was aghast. “I’ve not done that in years!”
“Just keep yanking on that cord, Preacher. It’ll come back to you.” "

Obviously it wound up in the street when the criminal carrying it was killed, what I want to know is how it wound up in the criminals hands to begin with. "

Love that list SatCong, my Dad used to say a lot of them...like, "heavens to mergartroyd".

I wonder what that meant, beyond being an exclamation.
What's the meaning of the phrase 'Heavens to Murgatroyd'?
An exclamation of surprise.

What's the origin of the phrase 'Heavens to Murgatroyd'?
Heavens to Murgatroyd'Heavens to Murgatroyd' is American in origin and dates from the mid 20th century. The expression was popularized by the cartoon character Snagglepuss - a regular on the Yogi Bear Show in the 1960s, and is a variant of the earlier 'heavens to Betsy'.

Despite etymologists' best efforts there isn't any record of the phrase that pre-dates the cartoon series and it seems quite likely that it was coined by the show's writers. The frequently repeated suggestion that the phrase was said by Bert Lahr's character in the 1944 film Meet The People isn't correct. [I know, I've watched the film, (which is 100 minutes that I'll never get back), and at no time is the phrase or anything like it said by any character.]. "

Video: Texas LEOs fatally shoot suspect pointing gun at them

Body camera footage released by the Fort Worth Police Department showed the suspect running with a handgun and pointing it at police

Yesterday at 1:27 PM

By Kaley Johnson and Jack Howland
Fort Worth Star-Telegram


FORT WORTH, Texas — The man fatally shot by Fort Worth police Wednesday may have lived if he’d been taken to a hospital sooner, the lawyer for the man’s family said Thursday.


Amari Malone, an 18-year-old from Fort Worth, died after being shot by police when Malone pointed a handgun at officers, Police Chief Ed Kraus said. Body camera footage released by the Fort Worth Police Department at a press conference showed Malone running with a handgun and appearing to point it at police.


Officers fired multiple rounds at Malone, and the 18-year-old was shot once. Police said officers approached Malone because he was a person of interest in a homicide case...
https://www.policeone.com/officer-sh...g-gun-at-them/

Bonnell Juvi, Malone’s older brother, said “Eventually, stuff like this has got to stop ... It’s just like an ongoing thing, like over and over and over. They keep pulling young people from out of the community,”


Running from the police and pointing a gun at them isn't "pulling young people from out of the community," that's young people taking themselves out of the community.

In regards to your first sentence: NO: But if it makes you feel good to think so, then I would agree with that statement: There is no one out there that would be the Perfect President LOL

Who on earth would think there would be? And when did I ever "intimate" I am looking for a "perfect President"? I have said over and over and over again I vote on one issue: 2A. They at least have to try to be darn close to that one. Which is like the simplest part of the Constitution to understand.

Again, back to the mantra of giving everything to the libs. Sure, let it happen short term, I think it would be a good thing. It might actually generate a Revolution which we really need.

Trump can be POTUS for the next 20 years and our rights will keep eroding anyway. Just pull the plug now and start anew I say "

" Lost Words From Our Childhood



Mergatroyd! Do you remember that word? Would you believe the spell-checker did not recognize the word Mergatroyd? Heavens to Mergatroyd!





The other day a not so elderly (I say 75) lady said something to her son about driving a Jalopy; and he looked at her quizzically and said, "What the heck is a Jalopy?" He had never heard of the word jalopy! She knew she was old ... But not that old.





Well, I hope you are Hunky Dory after you read this and chuckle.





About a month ago, I illuminated some old expressions that have become obsolete because of the inexorable march of technology. These phrases included:

Don't touch that dial,

Carbon copy,

You sound like a broken record,

and Hung out to dry.





Back in the olden days we had a lot of moxie . We'd put on our best bib and tucker , to straighten up and fly right.





Heavens to Betsy! Gee whillikers! Jumping Jehoshaphat! Holy Moley!





We were in like Flynn and living the life of Riley ; and even a regular guy couldn't accuse us of being a knucklehead, a nincompoop or a pill. Not for all the tea in China!





Back in the olden days, life used to be swell, but when's the last time anything was swell? Swell has gone the way of beehives, pageboys and the D.A.; of spats, knickers, fedoras, poodle skirts, saddle shoes, and pedal pushers.





Oh, my aching back! Kilroy was here, but he isn't anymore.





We wake up from what surely has been just a short nap, and before we can say, "Well, I'll be a monkey's uncle!" Or, "This is a fine kettle of fish!"



We discover that the words we grew up with, the words that seemed omnipresent, as oxygen, have vanished with scarcely a notice from our tongues and our pens and our keyboards.



Poof, go the words of our youth, the words we've left behind. We blink, and they're gone. Where have all those great phrases gone?



Long gone: Pshaw, The milkman did it. Hey! It's your nickel. Don't forget to pull the chain. Knee high to a grasshopper. Well, Fiddlesticks! Going like sixty. I'll see you in the funny papers. Don't take any wooden nickels. Wake up and smell the roses.



It turns out there are more of these lost words and expressions than Carter has liver pills. This can be disturbing stuff! (Carter's Little Liver Pills are gone too!)



Leaves us to wonder where Superman will find a phone booth...



See ya later, alligator! After a while, Crocodile! Okidoki.



You'll notice they left out "Monkey Business"!!!



WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE FABULOUS 50'S ... NO ONE WILL EVER HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY AGAIN .. WE WERE GIVEN ONE OF OUR MOST PRECIOUS GIFTS: LIVING IN THE PEACEFUL AND COMFORTABLE TIMES, CREATED FOR US BY THE "GREATEST GENERATION!" "

Indeed, charge them with the rescue.

How foolish. Most folks can’t intake enough water to replace what is lost in that kind of heat and during exertion. Negative water loss. "

You go to another Doctor if you don't like what the current doctor is doing. What you don't do is go to Dr. Kevorkian.
Sure, but if every doctor in the hospital is Kevorkian or slowly poisoning the patient, it might be a good thing to look for another hospital, unless we're happy with the patient staying alive only as long as the poison will permit. "

Any Democrat currently being considered for President will go for the immediate death.

I like 99% of what Trump is doing as President, he can do better on gun issues and I think he will. But, if he doesn't get reelected, not only will we see a down turn in the economy, up turn in taxation, possibly Socialized medicine in the form of "Medicare for All and a resurgence in regulations...we may not be able to come back from that.


You can try and justify sitting the election out, but the reality is that you are helping put a Leftist Democrat in office if you do. "

And here is the real danger IMO. While there is a gradual erosion of rights of the years, decades, it influences the younger people. They will only know what they have grown up with.

I think it is best to let it come to a head. Let a radical Dem come into office. It might spark a Civil War of sorts or a revolution. A gradual change will not spark anything since 30 years from now, those 30 year olds will assume this is how it should be.

If you prefer a lingering death of our rights, keep voting the you have been. I respect that. I find it oddly strange that people do not respect my right to not to vote for the reasons I have articulated.
So you will sit at home pouting and welcome a democrat in office, not me I will vote just to nullify a democrats vote. "
