Until something disrupts the average person's daily lives directly, action will not be taken by the masses.  What we need is something that takes away their access to facebook, instagram, or american idol.  Then and only then will these sheep get active.

I have a great pack from tactical assault gear. It has a strap and pouch on the back outside that allows you to carry your weapon upright on your bag while you're humping. I'll get details and pics later.

Solution in search of a problem.  No reported incidents of this ammo being used in the commission of a crime. It's about control.

Bug-Out Bag and Camping gear / Please don't hate on me
« on: February 20, 2015, 06:25:34 PM »
I know every toothless fat redneck on Youtube has a "survival bracelet" video so please don't hate on me.  I'm headed on a back packing camping trip with my two pre stewardesses (sorry Big D, my two young daughters will never be Rangers...perhaps they can marry one.) and we are practicing fire starting and a little navigation.  This is assuming they don't completely panic being in the woods in a small tent with bugs and the like.

I was weaving some bracelets just to have some paracord handy (OK and the girls thought it was cool.  I'd rather having them weaving paracord than that silly colored rubber band mess) and needed some more supplies.  Ran across this on Amazon


Had never seen it before so I decided to get a little of it.  It has an extra strand in the core that is red and makes tender.  I mistakenly thought it would be flamable enough to light with just a spark from a flint but its not.  It more like parafin and needed a pile of magnesium shavings to get it going.  I like the idea but not sure if its any better than weaving in a bit of jute rope into the bracelet.

I'll report back after the trip next weekend.  ( I haven't told them that I'll have MREs with heaters.  They think if we don't get fire lit we don't eat....)

yeah, I would carry a larger hatchet when not carrying everything I need in a pack.  This is 16oz, so I'll compromise on leverage to save a little weight.  Nate that Eastwing gives me nightmares.  Reminds me of my roofing hatchet back in the day...LOL

I had a chance to use one if these a few weeks ago. It's a Gerber mini hatchet. It weighs exactly 1 lb and is extremely sharp. I was able to make shavings off a dry log for kindling and use it to start a fire with magnesium and flint.  For the versatility and weight you can't go wrong. Comes with a nice sheath with loops.

I like that. Along a similar vein. The wolf is ever vigilant and always ready to strike. For those that leave their abode in the morning unprepared, without their weapon and in condition white, you should stop, take a long deep breath at the threshold of your door and upon breathing out bleat "baaa", because you are a sheep and the wolf awaits you.

Some times it's just good to be reminded and be thankful to the Lord for what he gives.

Rom 1:18-20
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse

Scary, isn't it Don?  Not the Islam part, I mean the "head in the sand, don't bother me with this stuff because I'm engrossed in my comfy little life" part.  Will it take another 9/11, or worse, a smoking 300 ft radioactive crater to get someone's attention and make them stop this charade of political correctness?

I may be wrong about this story, it could be some pasty white northern cracker, but I'm betting if it were a white American it would already be plastered all over the media with them saying "see, its not Islam".

I'll wager your lucky dollar this is a home grown radical Islam convert

Very tough call.  Close between my Wilson Combat Remington 870 and the LMT 10.5 CQB.  In the end, I'm going to choose this one.

From 100 meters and in, including room clearing, I own it with this one.
What I like here is the attention to detail. Things like marking your mag at 28 rounds, night fighting capability, ergo style grip.
On that note, fighting the M4 platform over in Iraq and Afghanistan, having a grip that stays in your hand in sweat (Mud) is pretty important.
The can is nice, I used one to, albeit one that civie eyes have never seen, but when working around dogs, it didn't hurt their ears. (Never quite understood that one, having a can designed around a dog's sensitive hearing, then having that dog get into my noisy helicopter?!?!
10.5" barrel, and why not, that .223 round is no good at range, so make it CQB friendly and use the length savings on that can. Aimpoint?? Good sight Gerry my buddy who made the best off hand left handed shot I have ever seen used one while the rest of used ACOG's at that time.
Great build and choice. Now work on that lower and get rid of that pass through linkage!

Yes Aimpoint CompM4 and ITT PVS14
Are you referring to the Magpul BAD lever?

 I absolutely love the BAD lever.    It does help to run the weapon faster.  Mainly malfunction clearing, but reloads as well.  As with anything, you must practice to get proficient.

Are you not a fan?

Daily brew is Kirkland's Pacific Bold in the K-cups.

When I want killer coffee, I break out the french press and grind up some Kona peaberry from the Sugai Coffee Farm in Kona

Favorite memory:  My wife bringing me a cup of Jamaican Blue Mountain in a dainty china cup (her deceased grandmothers) while I was covered in grease from pulling the tranny on my race car.  I was standing there with greasy hands with fat finger and thumb barely able to meet in the dainty loop of the fine white china.  Glad my buddies couldn't see me.

Yes, more and more the grip of the government control, driven by either the egomania of the behemoth or  the insatiable desire for revenue, is all around us.  Lest we forget the downfall of Mr. Capone, an excuse, however small, is all the government needs to persecute you.  I try to dot all my "i"s and cross all my "t"s

Financial Prep / Re: Economies of the world still declining...
« on: February 03, 2015, 08:38:53 PM »
Which is precisely why we have not experienced the second recession...yet.  In simple terms, we suck less.  As bad as it is getting here, it is much worse in other parts of the world and investors believe we can wait out BHO and his twisted socialist agenda.  The next election will be the real test for America.  If these RINOs don't wake up to the mandate that we gave them last November and the next election for POTUS goes democrat, we are, to use the technical term, screwed.

Its like a heroin addict.  The addict gets to have all the fun, partying like a rock star, racking up debt and gaining a bunch of friends in the process; then when the habit has to be broken the responsible party has to come in and clean up the mess and the "friends" all get mad and want to lynch the reponsible person.  Even if we get a conservative president and keep the house and senate, the quisling media will turn the populous against them as they have to take away all the free stuff promised by the "rock star heroin addict"

CIEMR / Re: Your taxes go up??
« on: February 03, 2015, 08:23:50 PM »
That's one of those things that I found worthwhile to hire a professional to do.  At least I only have one explosive blood pressure moment when I get the package with the note telling me what to write a check for instead of the entire time I'm fiddling with them.

Taxes have gone up on the "middle class" as well as the "rich"  They do it by loss of deductions many times.  Then the AMT is not indexed so many people lose their entire deduction strategy because the AMT kicks in.

I've been paying the same guy $350 a year to do my taxes for the past 10 years.  He's creative but never illegal or unethical.

OK, for the sake of research and reporting, I just applied for the GMRS license on line at fcc.gov.  Side note, the site is completely reflective of the bloated bureaucracy that our government has come to be.  The fee was $90 and now I wait.  In the mean time I'll start researching radios for the family.  My license will cover my wife and kids who will never be HAMs more than likely.  Stay tuned!

Gents, I'm at my outer limit of experience when it comes to LSD/Lockers.  When we raced, it was spool or nothing.

For my 2001 LB7, I'm investigating upgrades to the front and rear diffs.  I will probably start with the front.

What brands/types do you like and why?  I like the idea of a selectable locker like the ARB and I plan on having on board air like I do on the Dually.  If I have it in 4WD, its going to be off road and will benefit from a locking front diff.

I wouldst greatly appreciate the input and knowledge of the finest men

I think I've gotten past my anger and am now able to look at him in a detached clinical way.

He is not stupid.  He is a narcissistic ideologue in the greatest sense and will not deflect one degree on his approach and  his mission to convert this country into a leftist socialist country, giving to those who do not value hard work the benefits of hard work.  It is highly unlikely, bordering on impossible, that a person can deviate from how they are raised and the influences placed on them at an early age.  One only has to look at O's father and mentors to know what he really is.

CIEMR / Paris is reaping what it has sown - wake up America
« on: January 09, 2015, 09:08:02 AM »
In Paris, there are neighborhoods that the police won't enter.  They have allowed the Muslims to create their own Sharia law controlled areas.  The French, like most liimp wrist-ed liberals have capitulated to aggressors for years.  This time instead of the Germans, its the Muslims, and they are incredulous about the actions and events that are happening now.

This is the new war and is coming to America.  The beheading in OK is just a foretaste.  Be on guard.  The problem is that when we speak out against the "religion of peace" we will be called hate criminals and they will seek to silence us for fear for provoking an "inflammatory" response.

We must wake up and realize that the only, and I mean THE ONLY, things these animals understand is force. You cannot reason and rehabilitate these animals.  Like the natural order that God created, we must remove these animals from society.

Faith Discussion / Origin of Christmas
« on: December 22, 2014, 09:00:21 AM »
Did you know that it wasn't until the mid 1800s that protestants started celebrating Christmas?  Until then it was strictly a Catholic holiday invented by the Catholic church to "convert" Romans in the 4th century who refused to give up their pagan festival Saturnalia.  Apparently the Protestants were losing parishioners to the Catholic church for all the festivities and rather than stand on principle, they compromised to keep the pews full.

Food for thought.  The only commanded observance, is the Lord's table in remembrance of his death for the sins of those the Father gave him. For it was His death, not birth, that provided the single holy sacrifice to satisfy a just God.

CIEMR / Racism
« on: December 03, 2014, 10:17:12 PM »
Racism is alive and well in the United States
Alive and well in large part because of the so called black leaders who preach a white boogey man behind every blade of grass
They derive their power by subjugating the very people they claim to serve
By absolving them of their responsibility to behave according to societal and legal norms they create chaos in the community and damn them to a life of subsistence, crime and violence.
It is the white man's fault, they say.  Yet a dozen black men are murdered every weekend in Chicago and no one notices because it is at the hands of other blacks.  It is the white man's fault they say yet when blacks comprise 13% of the population, they commit more than 50% of the murders in America.
Deaths of blacks at the hands of police are down 70%, but they insist on blaming authority and so called black leaders perpetuate a lie with "hands up, don't shoot"
The "system" is broken they say, yet 76% of black youth are born into single parent households without a father figure to impart discipline and lead by example.
Since 1973 when Roe v Wade was passed, so many black babies have been aborted that blacks would make up 36% of the population today instead of 13% if those children lived.
In Ferguson they say "stay away from our neighborhoods with riot gear" because its racist to think blacks can't behave unviolently.  Then when the police stay away, they claim racism because white cops let their neighborhood burn by staying away.

So yes, racism is alive and well.  You just have to know where to look and you have to seek out who benefits from the story of racism.  Those very people claiming to help and be on the side of blacks.

The story the black community needs their leaders to share is easy.  Tough to hear, but easy.

don't break the law if you don't want to go to jail
don't attack a cop if you don't want to get shot
don't have sex out of wedlock and father illegitmate children more likely to end up in prison than an instituation of higher education
Stop believing that someone owes you something.  Get out and work hard.  Asians and Indians come to this country with nothing and learn to be successful by working hard.
Aspiring to be a thug or athlete is a sure fire way to shortened, miserable life.  The odds are astronomically against you becoming the next LeBron or Snoop Dog and astronomically with you for being dead or in jail if you don't apply yourself to getting an education

Mike Brown is dead because he was a thug who attacked a cop.  Learn from it. Don't be a Mike Brown and it's highly unlikely you wind up dead at the hands of a cop.

Is there anything more racist than to concede that a race of people are incapable of controlling their actions and conforming to societal norms?  I think not
