    In your face, signs...its good......

    Choosing to ignore a rule or call a spade a spade does not mean one did not read the rules or does not understand them. I speed, don't use my turn signal, and even park on the wrong side of the street sometimes knowing full well I'm breaking the rules. It's a choice, not ignorance. BTW, my hair...

    Ron, You made it clear before you became an administrator that you hate politics. Others like debating/arguing politics. It hardly seems right that you can delete a post or kill a thread just because it doesn't appeal to you. That is lame, dude.

    Pastor tazed

    I had mixed feelings about this. On one hand, authority unchecked tends towards abuse and a slow loss of our rights. On the other hand, this guy was out seeking confrontation. I sort of felt for him at the border patrol check because I think radom checks of any kind are unconstitutional. The...

    My definition of Courage;

    I like cats and dogs, for different reasons. I like cats because of their attitude. The cat in that picture had CATtitude!!

    the check is in the mail...

    My situation never got violent. Here's the deal. I was just out of high school about 19 years old. I had a 1967 Firebird that had a flat recently and had the 50mph, 3000 mile, CO2 inflated spare on the left rear. My buddy Eric and I had planned to go duck hunting at the Mendota Wildlife Refuge...

    the check is in the mail...

    I've read all the posts here and have to say something. I am a gun owner. I have at least one of each type: handgun, shotgun, rifle. I've been target shooting and hunting since I was five years old. I've only ever once had to point a gun at someone while in genuine fear for my life. Fortunately...

    Y´all have to know this

    Hmmm. People need to fact check. Some listings put the US fourth behind Russia, Canada, and then China with Brazil fifth. Others put the US third ahead of China, but Brazil is still fifth. In fact, all the references I check, no matter how "area" was defined, put the US ahead of Brazil...

    Ah ha!!

    Those must be all the guns going into the Mexican drug wars I've been hearing about from the liberal media. You know, everything wrong in the world is all our (US) fault. I bought a "slap-chop". Does that count? (Just kidding.)

    Y´all have to know this

    Ther reason why it is lonely at the top (where the US is) is because everyone else is jealous and gunning for you. It has been that way since WW2. Any time anyone gets a chance to twist some statistic to make the US look bad they are going to jump all over it. It is all "sour grapes". One way to...

    Most $$$$ Accident....

    I was wiring a switchboard panel in a substation that fed power to a sea of oil well pumpjacks in Fellows, CA, back in the mid-80's. It's north of Taft and west of Bakersfield. The Electrical Technician was suppose to have everything switched out. He didn't. It took about five things to be just...

    Not sure how to take this...

    Maybe if the killing gets high enough, there won't be anyone left to grow, process, transport, and distribute that crap. Send more!

    Disappointed

    Actually, I didn't see the thread involving the girl in which you refer, so technically I did "miss" it. I also was not involved in any of the attacks in the thread that disappeared. I was just enjoying the drama. Finally, I don't belongs to other forums. If they ban people for being critical of...

    Disappointed

    I came looking for the most entertaining thread in a while and see the new Führer deleted it from the "News" forum. <sigh> Time for Operation Valkyrie!

    Daylight Savings Time

    I've skipped what everyone else wrote so I hope I don't offend anyone with what I am about to write. I've read university studies that prove that jumping the clock back and forth saves nothing. It doesn't improve productivity. It doesn't increase security for school age children. It does NOT...
