JoJoGunn replied to the thread 300K+ signed up to storm area 51.
" People have lost their minds, and if indeed there are "extraterrestrial" bodies or even living ones at Area 51, most likely they've been kept secret for a number of reasons. I think the Government loves the mystique about the place, look how much interest it has generated over the years and keeps the public guessing about military affairs. It may be a sideshow to deflect from what is really going on, I don't know but the whole thing is simply old and boring. The tourism aspect of it has been good for the local area and if the folk are allowed to storm the facility and see the "evidence" first hand, the people running the tourist industry won't be happy.

If it were possible for some other worldly creatures to travel across the vastness of space and time, that would be a feat in itself, they would have to be amazingly technologically advanced and have an incredibly long life span. We've barely left our home planet and on July 20th of this year celebrate the 50th anniversary of landing on our Moon, well maybe according to the naysayers that it was staged. An alien coming to Earth would have to be so advanced we may not even know how to deal with such technology with our primitive minds.

I really think that alien life packed up one day, trekked out on a vacation voyage to Earth and as they landed and got out, they looked around at our mess and said "Well, we came all that way for THIS???" They probably took off, stopping at the Mars Rest Area first.

At the end of the day, these people who wish to "storm Area 51" are just wanting attention. "

JoJoGunn replied to the thread Can AOC be a Good Thing For Promoting the Trump Administration?.
" "The Squad" as they are known with Occasional Cortex being the quasi-leader of the pack are great entertainment, but like a rattlesnake, they look silly and harmless but do have a fatal bite. They are simply dangerous because they have a message that a lot of folk want to hear. They love the "free stuff" message. They love the "hate Trump" message. They love the hate America message. They love the message of dragging capitalism down to the floor level because the ones who feel like perpetual victims now have advocates to raise them up to a level of power. That is what is scary, these people in charge of a country who's system has worked for over 200 years. Just because they appear to be silly and mouthpieces, they still are dangerous.

I don't think they will unseat Trump. They don't have the backing of the majority of Americans, including moderate Democrats (yes, it's no myth, they do exist.) They are giving it a real good go of it though. I have never witnessed a time in the U.S. like I am seeing now with politics, the two opposing sides vying to kill each other in elections because they want power and could care less about the people they rule.

JoJoGunn replied to the thread THE NEW ANT and the Grasshopper.
" This is what was used many years ago to combat "socialism" known then as Communism. Both monikers are one and the same however, Communism being the worst name that scares people, but "Socialism" is a bit more palatable.

It is the same old Communist philosophy, blame the rich, take it from them, give to those who do not work for or deserve it and make everyone equally miserable and poor. "

Not that I particularly "like" Russian music, but they do have some good stuff out there that I have not really looked at or gave a listen. In this era of disliking Russians, I tend to stay away from posting anything about them, even the positive stuff.

As a musician however, I appreciate others and their styles and likes of music. The Red Elvises sound almost Latin with a bit of Balalaika instrumentation in it. I enjoyed that, I do appreciate music in most forms. "

JoJoGunn created the thread I "discovered" a great musical group!.
" I kept seeing this group popping up on You Tube and finally clicked the video. It was a cover of the group "Chicago" and their song "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is? one of my favourite songs by them.

The musical group is called "Leonoid & Friends," a group of Russians led by Leonid Vorobyev, a multi talented musician. They replicate the original "Chicago" studio recordings so well that I thought I was listening to the actual group and not just a cover.

I know, I know, they are "Russians" but they simply do a fabulous job and have toured in the States with their act. I would like to see them in concert, being a huge fan of Chicago and their original drummer Danny Seraphine who's playing inspires me to this day in my drumming.

Take a listen to the video and see how much fun they have in the studio and the passion they put into the music. Also check out a song they do a capella called "ЭТО - РУСЬ" (Eta Rus- This is Rus). An old Russian folk song that is simply beautiful with perfect harmonies.

Usually went by "Abbie." I barely remember the "Yippies." They were part of that Hippie, Peace, Love, Radical Protest, Weather Underground, Patty Hearst Bank Robbing era. "

" Yes, I am a bit saddened to see Mad Magazine fold. I used to love reading it as a kid. No more Spy vs Spy or Alfred E. Newman. I especially liked their satire of movies. The one I remember most was of the "Godfather" when the writers wrote that the Lawyer in the family wanted to be a criminal lawyer but only finished the "criminal" part. Brilliant.

I wonder what kind of tripe will be replacing this icon. That is the scary thought of the day. "

JoJoGunn replied to the thread Let's talk politics with the ladies USA soccer team.
" My two cents or a little more.

First off, this soccer player represents the United States team, I stress United States of America and team. Saying that, the soccer player is representing what? A few disgruntled Liberals who hate President Trump and take that hatred and put it on national display? Of course this is their right of Free Speech to say such things and do actions to disrespect the Office and the Flag, but as it has been said "words and actions have consequences" and surely there are some floating around. Namely the backlash from those who support the President and the U.S.

What I see is a very unhappy person who could not change the outcome of the last election and is still smarting from the loss. They feel that it is their Liberal civic duty to bash the President in an effort to make folks believe all the things that are being said about him and how he got to the White House. Clearly they don't understand our election process where there are winners and losers in politics, just like the sport they play. It's a real simple concept that has failed to convince some people.

Maybe it wants attention. Maybe it feels so.....so......ignored that it has to do something radical to get back into the headlines and somehow feel relevant. Can you imagine if one of our soccer players had stood up and bashed Obama while he was in Office and refused to go if they won a tournament and then flung the Stars & Stripes down on the ground in protest? The Liberal media would have had a soccer field day (pun intended) with that I guarantee. It is this Liberal/Democrat double standard that makes me dislike these people, what they stand for and how they are using such things to divide and conquer. Well, I ain't buying it one bit.

There. Fresh off the rant page of Jo Jo. Peace, love and Unicorns. "

JoJoGunn created the thread Tried Out a New Indoor Range.
" We now have a new(er) indoor range nearby my home called "Bare Arms." They also have a great little restaurant there as well and if you come and eat, they give you a discount to use the range.

Well, me, the wife and my son went this past Thursday, ate a wonderful meal then went to the indoor range. I had my Taurus 9mm and a S&W Bodyguard .380 and our Bushmaster AR-15. The wife had her Ruger LCR .357.

I had a lot of ammo to boot, and we shot for about an hour. Had not done so in a couple of years so it felt great to be back shooting again. My son loved the AR, and even though we still have not obtained a sight for it, the wife put a 5.56 round in the bullseye. She was happy to say the least.

It was a fun evening of eating and shooting and we will definitely be back. They also sell guns, ammo and other stuff such as Black Rifle Coffee. They had a couple of S&W Shield 9mm pistols for sale at $299.00 and believe me, I was tempted to buy one, I may go back and do it before they are sold. "

JoJoGunn created the thread Marshall Universityto keep the name Jenkins Hall on a building.
" Several months ago there was a group of folks called "Students for a Democrat Society" milling about on the campus of Marshall University in Huntington, WV. Well these little "progressives" found a building with an offensive name and petitioned to have it removed and changed to something less offensive.

The name of the building is Jenkins Hall, named for a local man from the 1860's, Albert Gallatin Jenkins, who had a plantation up the Ohio River and was also a slave owner. When the Civil War broke out, he left the Legislature and got up a cavalry unit for the Confederacy. He fought all along the Ohio River valley and over in the Shenandoah valley. He was severely wounded at the battle of Cloyd's Mountain having an arm amputated. He died from infection and was brought back to Cabell County and buried in the family cemetery. Later on, he was exhumed and reburied in Spring Hill Cemetery in Huntington.

Sometime in the early 1900's there was a building on the campus named for him, I believe the Daughters of the Confederacy had petitioned for it to be named in his honor since he was a well known Cabell County resident.

Moving up to modern times, this student group found the name offensive and asked the governing board of Marshall U. to take the name off because he was a traitor and slave owner and they felt that buildings should not be named in honor of such people. There was a big flap over it, most students had no idea who Jenkins was and probably didn't care until some group wanting attention brought it out.

They had a hearing on it and sides for and against the name came, presented their case. I was part of a group on FaceBook being invited by the person who started it. She is very Liberal and a Democrat but she felt that this whole thing was a waste of time and that changing the name of this building would do absolutely nothing. I put my opinions on there, because she invited me to do so and I was flamed by every hate filled Liberal on it that I resigned from the group and told the lady why. She understood and tried to stop the other from flaming me, but the damage was done.

Marshall put out a petition with opinion to be included for people that were against the name and those for it. I filled out a long fact filled opinion piece stating that the very name of Marshall University was named after former Chief Justice John Marshall, himself a slave owner and that if you were going to change the name of Jenkins Hall why stop there, change the name of the entire University. That was one of the things I was flamed over on FaceBook when I made that suggestion but the flamers said that it was different with Marshall. Really? Idiots and people who don't know history are going be the ruin of this country.

This action also helped me finally join the Camp A.G. Jenkins Sons of Confederate Veterans group locally. In fact, the ancestor that I used to join fought under Jenkins and stated so at his 90th birthday party in 1935.



Well today, I was informed that Marshall University voted 9-7 to keep the name in place. To pacify the "activists" though they will put a plaque inside of the building denouncing slavery and oppression. I consider this a win for Freedom of Expression and at least 9 people on the board had the cojones to stand up to these Liberals. "
