I am the extremist your Government warned you about....

So in Indianapolis (Speedway) Indiana, Hours after qualifying at the track for the Indianapolis 500, Dario Franchitti and Scott Dixon, hungry late at night after a long day and an even longer evening of press conferences and such go to a Taco Bell (apparently the only place close by that was open) for some late night munchies for themselves and their crews.
Got robbed in the drive through. It was once a decent part of town, but hasn't been for many years. While no one was injured, they were robbed by two "Yoots" with a pistol while waiting in the drive through.
The police arrested two juveniles a few tens of minutes later. I'd bet that there were no other calls answered until arrests were made in this case.....
Had an interesting conversation Monday at the range....
[I was sighting in and function testing a new Henry Survival Rifle for the new truck (space in the truck just isn't there for the folding stock AK I had in the old truck). The rifle shot well, 2 of the three magazines worked, one will be replaced....not a fan of the peep sight, but it is very functional and works for what it is supposed to do. 100 rounds, zero ammo related issues. In fact, the ONLY issue was the one magazine, which won't lock into the receiver properly and falls out after one shot. Watch this space, later, there might be a range report if I don't get too lazy...]
Was packing up when a member I recognize but do not know arrived. He was on his phone pontificating to someone that "Healthcare is a Constitutional right".
I waited until he got off the phone and asked him if he had ever, you know, READ the Constitution.
Turns out he hadn't....At least he admitted that.
I asked him how he could claim that Health Care was a right enumerated in the Constitution if he, himself, had no real knowledge of the aforementioned Constitution.
He mumbled.....Ended up saying he had misspoke, and what he meant was it was a "Human Right" and that we should all pay to help others who were less fortunate than we.
I asked him how many he was helping?
He wanted to know what I meant?
"I mean, bro, you are driving a BMW...that is what, a $80,000 car? How much "Basic Health Care" would that buy?" ...."And that nice (and it WAS nice) Python there? How much would that buy?" (it was mint, and nice. Likely a full Colt Custom item. Perfect Colt Blue...).
"Why don't you start, before you want everyone else to pay for your little Socialist experiment.....?"
He asked what I meant.
"Why don't you live in a very small home, sell your big one. Why don't you drive a small car, maybe a Corolla rather than that big honkin' Beemer. Live at or close to the Poverty line.....Take that money, along with what you get when you sell your firearms, your house, and your cars, and use THAT cash to show the rest of us the way it oughta be before you start saying that Health Care is a right to be paid for by others? .....Show Me The Way...? Or is it that you are just a Socialist with Other People's Money? How many people's healthcare insurance have YOU paid for this year? "
I'll bet it was those Lutheran immigrants from Scandinavia. Probably second generation ones helped by recent ones from Latvia. Seems to be pattern.
And our Government wants to bring lots and lots of that group over here. Will we have the same problems in 5 or 10 or 20 years?
Police say they know the identity of the suicide bomber, but they aren't telling anyone. And knowing the name after the fact doesn't help those who were killed or injured by those flying nails and ball bearings, does it? Will any of those folks ever be the same? Will they ever have no fear in a public place?
If Comey was asked to stop an investigation, effectively to Obstruct Justice.....Wasn't he required to report this?
I mean, he was asked to break the law, according to reports. By the President. Which, according the the DNC MSM was illegal enough to get Trump impeached.
But Comey chose not to report it. Which would them seem to me that he either didn't think it was important enough to do anything about, or he was willing to conceal the fact that the President had effectively asked him to conspire to break the law.....Obstructing justice by failing to report the illegal actions he now claims happened.
Isn't an officer of the law (and this includes FBI agents) required to report any such actions? Isn't failure to report such actions a violation of their oath and in fact, illegal? I am told this is true by folks who work for the FBI.
(not that I think that we SHOULD have primary elections....at least not primary party elections officiated over and paid for by taxpayers...The General election, yes, but the primaries are the responsibility of the Parties)
SO I need to stock the new truck, I got nearly everything I need, but I DO need to find a decent, compact REAL First Aid kit. Something that I can use to treat major stuff, not Band-Aids, and asprins. I'm talking first aid at an accident or the like....
If I could find one, I'd get something like the kit I got when I took AD's Gunshot Wound class.
Anyone got any suggestions? I can indeed make my own, but it'll be expensive and I would have to buy a lot of stuff that I then would never use (can't buy chest seals by the "each", ferinstance).....Plus there is the hassle of finding a decent small pack to put it all in.
So does anyone have any suggestions for an already put together kit?
When you have too many of any one cultural group of immigrants on one place.....especially Muslims, but, really, of any group. When the percentage of any one immigrant group becomes too high, you end up with things that go against the "American" way. Which isn't always bad, but undermines the culture and authority of the country.
Be specific. On the one hand, "Freedom of Religion". Who are you to tell me how and who with I can worship....or when?
On the other hand, "Zoning".....and the outrage of a few citizens.......Who happen to live near the office park where this "Church" conducts it's "services". Who are they to say where such services can be held? These "church services" are behind closed doors, not in public.
I dunno. I doubt that the folks in the neighborhood will win this one.
It is "Slippery Slope".....if you can decide that a community can define how or what a "church" is or how they "worship" then you have a mandated religion. If this were a Mosque of a Synagogue being opposed, the City would lose immediately. But instead, a bunch of bible thumping churchgoers believe they have the right to define other peoples behavior when it has no impact on their own lives......and that they can define what a "Church" and "worship" is.
I foresee this getting ugly. And I see a potential Supreme Court case here. Not my thing, but I really don't want the State to get to decide how anyone's church must conduct itself....
What CAN happen when the city and State are motivated to make something happen rather than impede it? When they help rather than impede? When inspectors show up on time and plans are approved in a timely fashion rather than languish on some bureaucrat's desk for days or weeks....(and yes there were financial incentives to the construction company too). When there isn't a call for a study for an endangered species or a survey required for drainage or for greenspace impacts or displacing homeless or any of the other bullshit that normally happens....
'Tis interesting that every Democrat wanted Comey fired....until he got fired. I sincerely doubt Comey is the lead investigator in the investigation into the "Russians", so how is this a big deal? It's not like he was gonna excuse any behavior like he did Hillary's "mishandling" of Top Secret memos.
Then it must be a coverup. Odd how the media conveniently forgets that, innit?
And no one said anything when Billy Clinton fired Willie Sessions the day before he had Vince Foster killed Vince foster committed "Suicide"...
Because "Democrat", so "ignore improprieties".
Comey should have been fired Day One. If Comey had had any honor, he would have resigned.
And it isn't like there aren't several other investigations concurrent with the FBI investigation.
Why do I have to hear a made up scandal biased story to the exclusion of Real news?
ETA: And now they can't seem to stop using "Watergate" in the same sentence, as if to link the Break-In and subsequent debacle to Trump.
"Rules for Radicals" seems to be the rule of the Media today.
Scott Pelley just can't stop using the word "Russian" every time he refers to Trump.
At this point, his credibility is beyond repair.
He has noting to point at to LINK Trump to anything Russian, But he can't (or won't) stop using "Russian" in the same sentence. Perhaps this is an attempt to link Trump and "Russians" in his viewers minds?
Look: I am all for finding out if, as is implied, Trump was under the pay of, or was somehow aided by, the "Russians". Perhaps he really is Putin's lapdog. But this continued innuendo, without accusation and without proof is becoming pedantic, and frankly, irritating....and childish.
For many years the MSM has had little credibility with me, But they don't have to renew my reasons for doubt daily.... I get the fact that they HATE Trump and they will do anything to delegitimize him as President. But at some point, they have to just stop.
The Left is going NUTS about this alleged Russian thing. The Left (and the Hillary campaign) made it up and the Loretta Lynch's "Justice" department believed them and then the Press ran with it....
