I unfortunately, think this is a given… It’s just a matter of when.

I agree with what he says completely if maybe only being a little off on the number of Multi-Billion dollar companies crushed by the data hacks. (not everyone’s success relies on anonymity for cheating on your spouse…lol.)

This will be the war of the future for tech based societies… power grid failure. Coupled with a denial of cell service and not a single bullet would have to be fired for millions to perish in the loss of services as they turn on each other. It’s crazy how dependent we’ve become on a 3 day supply of food…Mind boggling actually.

IP masking and redirection he mentions is simple for even me, a computer rookie. The masters would make it untraceable to original sourcing.

Don’t forget half the eligible voter did not vote, and he actually lost the popular vote by the largest of and electoral collage/popular vote flip. It easy for us to get bound up in our own little political world and brush these folks off as snowflakes, tree huggers, feminazies and such. We have to live with these people as one nation. Right now it pretty much getting pulled into 2. Mainly because were screaming so loud we can’t hear each other. Neither side is right, or perfect. We better settle or beef and get our united act together before someone comes along and eats our lunch for us.

Ray —

Here’s the problem with that line of thinking. When obama was in charge, I didn’t hear anyone on the left saying they needed to remember that there were people who don’t agree with them. I do recall obama saying republicans could ride in the back of the bus. I do recall o-care being pushed through with all kinds of machinations and without a single republican vote. I do recall harry reid abandoning the filibuster rule.

So, we on the right are supposed to be considerate, play nice, uphold the filibuster, etc etc, when those on the left ignore all those things and push full steam ahead on their agenda.

President Trump is the first person in years–decades, even–who has provided any pushback on the liberal democrat nightmare. I say, Godspeed, President Trump!

Ray—I hear you on keeping eyes open….I voted Trump because I care about the country and think it’s a spit in the face of every veteran that ever fought or died in the line of duty if someone didn’t vote at all. Yes, we have the right to not vote as well but that’s just plain stupid.

I didn’t go in this with blinders on….Trump is FAR from perfect but he was running on a lot of policies I agree with what we need to start correcting our countries losses thus far. trade, immigration, taxes, and the status Quo.

Hillary is just PLAIN EVIL no matter how someone tries to spin her so he was the logical choice on election day as no other had even a chance Vs. her….
A prime example of Trumps failings is how he released the ban(but there was no winning way to do it for everyone’s opinions) and even worse was his comment today on the Federal judges ruling for stay….THAT is the entire reason we have separation of powers… So no one man may become dictator…..This will work itself out in the system we have. It’s going to be a bloody fight, but it will be “Come what may”.

Trump was the obvious choice trusting in our system to offer checks and balances against any branch of government…..and Anita’s correct too, I wish him Godspeed….How could anyone not? HE’S OUR PRESIDENT!!! If you wish him failure, you wish your country and ALL of us failure…HOW STUPID IS THAT???

The votes over….It doesn’t matter by what margin or if a bunch of dumbasses didn’t vote because they didn’t like anyone or didn’t care….Those people can cry all they want but have NO ONE to blame but themselves and need to just STFU. I’m sure they’re mostly good people but STFU already….

He was elected by the people fairly in our system established….It’s EXACTLY why it was built that way to begin with.(Electoral College)….The country chose and it was decided.

As I told you and agree with you earlier, My eyes are wide open…no blinders. As of now, he’s done nothing wrong IMO…Is he crass? Is he an authoritative person? of course! That’s who was elected….

And mollypup has very valid points above as well…..I don’t see it getting better before worse though. I sincerely hope we can find a common ground because we’re all dead if we don’t. NOBODY wins in a civil war and that’s where its headed if this crap just grows ………… THIS.IS.WHY.WE.PREP…..amongst other reasons.

I’ll be watching and supporting him 100% UNLESS I see something heinous…very unlikely. Again, IMO.

The 100,000 visas were not all refugee visa holders. Green cards aka “permanent resident cards” are neither permanent nor are you considered a citizen.

A Refugee visa is normally issued by the US State Dept in the country where you want to leave by our embassy there.

Think of a visa as a permit. You can come to the US LEGALLY and for A LIMITED TIME on a visa. You can get a tourist visa, a student visa to attend college, a migrant worker to pick crops and the hotly debated H1B visa. NONE are a guarantee of anything. It’s a permit given to you. They can be revoked early.

The student studying, the IT guy from New Dehli and the tourist from France can all have their visa revoked. None of these visa holders are “going home to be shot at”. There are thousands of people in the US who have overstayed their visa. Some for years.

This is an effort to begin to enforce laws already on the books. You can be passionate about rescuing the world but Americans seem to pick up their dinner check more often than most other nations.

Yes^^^^

And the list of countries that was used in the ban were the countries from Obamas list HE CREATED, not Trumps…..All Trump did is enact the 90 day ban for the list created by previous administrations to assess and get a handle on how to proceed…the media conveniently leaves that part out.(Shocker)

He was elected on this promise BY THE PEOPLE….There is nothing wrong with him fulfilling his promises that he was elected for.

the laws need to be enforced…they are there for a reason. We have some of the most generous immigration policies out there WORLD WIDE so don’t get bent out of shape for someone making them work the way they were designed.

We are not the only nation on this earth and are not the only ones in charge of fixing the worlds woes ESPECIALLY at the detriment to its own citizens.

There is ZERO wrong with profiting from your work…Think of it like this, the more people download it, the more they’re thanking you for sharing your time and giving them a break from their reality. every single book I buy I see it the same way.

Amazon pays by the amount of pages actually read if in the Kindle Unlimited releases….If you don’t continue reading a story for some reason, the author only gets paid a for that portion….the more pages read and additional books downloaded in a given series tell you as a writer if people are REALLY appreciative of your work….it’s great constructive feedback for you, the author as well.

Hmmmm….Greenery Grabbers! Rhubarb Robbers! Tomato Thieves!!! Pumpkin Pullers!….I could go on, but wont. :p

A security camera system is never a bad idea…There are hundreds out there with the different recording options and cost.

Are you sure you need that level of security just from the garden incident or do you want whole house coverage anyways?

There’s always a trail cam to just keep an eye on things…..You can put it up at night and leave it, not drawing attention to the location until you notice your next Artichoke Abductor(couldn’t resist :p ) and then pull the card to see if you know the perp. It’s most likely a local resident if happening repeatedly…..If it was just a one off situation the trail cam will cost you much less…

I had a brand new lawn that kept getting dug up in the middle of the city here in CA and large clumps of the new sod being left on my rear patio…strangest thing…..Couldn’t figure it out for weeks. Got the camera, watched the lawn, checked the card, and WHAMO…Critter ID’d. Raccoon’s were coming out of the sewer and digging up grubs….lol…Made for some pretty funny images actually. Then I approached it and solved it from the right direction knowing it was the raccoon I had to target.

complicated, but needed….

I don’t care about the protestors…let ’em squawk. They will deter nothing.

DJT was duly elected based on the promises he made to the American people. To date, in my entire 45 yrs. of life, I have NEVER seen a President fulfilling his campaign promises he ran on so fast….Dem or Repub…PERIOD.

the immigration issue is huge. it’s been out of control for WAY too long and the previous admin was so hell bent on holding a PC image even to the detriment of the safety of it’s own citizens they were sworn in to protect. the were so PC consonance that they were paralyzed even though they knew it was an issue. Germany is a shining example of what that policy did for a country….Chaos.

Now DJT is acting…There is no hesitation whether its from a imminent threat thru intelligence or acting immediately from examples of Germany’s open borders and continuing to being the fastest acting President in all my years.

There will be no winning in this for him…There is no perfect policy where everyone will be satisfied on how enacted. Get it done. get it done now. there will be fallout either way. correct where you can limiting the fallout but not at the expense or our citizens safety.

If you have a green card and need to travel, you should understand there is a simple choice….don’t leave or you may not get back. if separation from family is a factor then that’s part of your decision….If you don’t like it, TOO BAD! you are not a citizen and ANY country has the right to restrict travel crossing its borders…period…..There will be a process allowing you to come in and you must follow it. the world has changed, and not for the better. We need to change with it or be swallowed whole by it….I love immigrants as they love our country so much and talk about it with a passion that not even some of our own spoiled citizens speak of as they’ve never lived anywhere else and don’t see the jewel we have here with no other experiences….

But there needs to be a stricter process and the laws already in place need to be enforced or we will lose the jewel we have to the ones who dont.

This will get worked out….until then you stop the unmitigated flow.

sheesh….even the guy with the green card detained today even said he likes DJT…… a foreign Muslim I asked about DJT before the election said all his family and friends that immigrated from the Middle east all were voting for DJT and agreed with the vetting needed as in his own words “We know what its like over there. That’s why we left. We don’t want that here now too”

the cash call has always worked for me before forced into covered CA… Always paid 1/2 the cost with 2-3 phone calls.

but, we have to be careful what we ask for…. I remember as a little kid my sister (7 back then) was hit by a car….Bad…. Don’t really know the reasoning behind it but when the ambulance arrived the EMT’s would not transport her to the hospital without being paid up front….My parents were at a loss and amazed since we had full insurance(Dad was an engineer at Xerox) but no cash on them as we were just visiting at a family friends house for the day…I remember the screaming going on. Nothing they said made a difference. it was nuts. after about 5 min of screaming a bystander opened his wallet and paid them 3 $100 bills and they drove right to the hospital. We still talk about it to this day…..insane. I’ll never forget that day.

I would love a cash system as I pay $894 pre month for me, wife, and my 18 month old in our grand new system(and that’s without dental) and I hear I’m on the low end of the spectrum Vs. some other states, BUT…..???

Point being, what happens if insurance is done away with all together in these situations?….Who stops the situation that happened to us 35 years ago from happening again?

You’ve gotten a lot of good advice here. Read it all again.

If you’ve been living in SoCal, do you REALLY think you would do well in a much colder, or hotter/far more humid place? What if you’re stuck there FOREVER?

Someone suggested renting for a year or so, and that is a good idea. Just because an area looks good to you doesn’t mean the ‘home folks’ will think the same of you. You’ll be an interloper.

If you’re looking to buy, don’t take anyone’s word for anything, including the quality of the soil. And check all of the local regulations, esp about water. If the place has a watersource, you may not be able to use it, or use the land near it for anything. Check with a local insurance agency to find out what flood zone it’s in; A is bad, B is not quite so bad, C is pretty good, X is best. There’s probably some in between, but those are the basics.

In UT, you may be driven to carrying a weapon because every clerk will ask you the same question: “What ward are you in?” I’ve driven in a good many states, and UT has my vote for having some of the stupidest people driving almost between the lines. No place could touch them until I moved here to WA.

I would advise you to stay away from Effing Stupid Central (WA State). I’ve lived in this pit of despair for 23 very long years, and I’m finally getting out this summer. At least 70% of the people here (maybe more) are the most stupid, ignorant, obnoxious, arrogant, lying, thieving AHs that I’ve ever met. The average local zombie vocabulary has about 100 words in it, certainly not more than 200 (and none of the words have more than two syllables). They can’t think, don’t even know the concept of cause and effect, can’t drive, can barely park, and can’t back up w/o hitting something. Okay, these are the business people! The rest of them are worse.

If there’s meth use in the area (practically the whole state), they will steal everything that isn’t welded down, and if they have darkness and a hacksaw, they’ll take everything that’s welded down, too. NEVER sell a car w/o immediately letting the DMV know about it. The buyers are bad about doing it themselves, plus being lousy drivers, so you don’t want the cops at your door, saying that car ran down a pregnant woman pushing a baby stroller.

You’re not going to find perfect, so you’d better do your homework so you can find something you can live with. Everything is going to be an uphill learning experience. Try to homeschool, if you can; the public school system in the U.S. is the worst of all the industrialized nation, as well as being the most expensive.

lol…Well, I guess WA is out for sure. ;)

Congrats on getting out. Sounds like you’ve been thru the ringer there.

Thank you for the input F.O.H….yes I have gotten AMAZING info here and am EXTREEMLY grateful.

Home school…CHECK and DOUBLE CHECK! That’s been the plan early on…..The missus was a toddler teacher for 16 years and has absolutely been amazing. We’ve seen first hand the curriculum changes coming down the pipe and what is going on in the classrooms….

I know we all say this as parents but our little girl is pretty darn smart for her age… I was adamant about teaching her ASL (sign language) from the start….At 18 months we are having full conversations with her and always know(almost always) exactly what she’s trying to say…… mom.is.amazing.!

aw well, maybe I’ll just go get 1000 rounds for a great 2 day course I run with the local PD/Swat guys I train with at my local range for some time trials on a steel shoot…..better get it in now since I can’t buy ammo next year( end of 2018) without a massive cost and permit adding my name to yet another registry that does nothing….

Screw this….I’m going to take a 2 week vacation to get this crap off my mind….OH WAIT!!! I don’t know that’s a great idea either since if a guy breaks into my house on day 2 and steals my gun I have to report it stolen within 5 days or I become a criminal for not reporting it and will not pass a background check to buy the replacement gun!!!….Too risky to take that vacation!….I better just go for the weekend.

It’s called back door gun control my friend….Look it up….and it has been happening…for YEARS.

It amazes me the complacency I see from people not on the front lines…..sorry if this seems rough. It is a very hot topic for me and yes…this is WAY :offtopic: … I had just come in from looking over what I was taking to the range today so it was fresh in my mind again……Sorry OP….rant done.

Please continue to live in the fantasy that its not happening…you’ll get to experience it soon too.

As a matter of fact, I did get my “Liberal’s Guide to Gardening” catalog today. There were some interesting new strains of seeds offered.

I may order ” Barack’s Lush Lawn Covering” It is touted as a wonderful, thick lawn grass, imported from Africa, that they assure will satisfy the pickiest gardener. However there is the warning that once propagated, the gardener may experience an uncontrollable and fanatic urge to golf every day, even though the economy and world collapses around him. It does come with the insured promise that the lawn owner can keep his old lawn if dissatisfied. However the cost of replanting new seed each year will double and sometimes triple in cost.

I was also impressed with the ‘Pelosi Peas”. You have to plant them first in order to see what is in the pods.

I will post anything else I find of interest in the catalog. It may take me some time. The catalog is 25,000 pages long.

Did anybody else get this catalog?

Reb

Ya, I got it too….What a disappointment. I got scammed really…
The backyard here has really bad soil…Nothing would take….Then I heard about Barack’s Lush Lawn Covering and man was I filled up with HOPE with the transformation of CHANGE it promised… Turns out it was nothing but a bunch of weeds…It was pretty Green for a bit but as soon as they got going and you cut them back you were left with nothing but a bunch of thick stems that hurt your feet to walk on…What a let down.

It’s going to take years to get this damage fixed now if there’s even any nutrients left in the soil.

DONT GET THE PELOSI PEAS!!!….that’s an old, old old, scam here from CA….. There actually CA Lemons…and some of the worst tasting ones at that. Full of seeds and almost no juice even on new season fruit.

BUYER BEWARE!!!

Personal Safety and Home Security • Hmmm…WHAT?!?..No front sight?

January 25, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

Looking for input and hands on opinions here…

I’ve never looked forward to milling my slide for an optic and dealing with special holsters. While I can see the benefits of a raised optic for one hand racking it’s just not been something I’ve been willing to do thus far…

Enter the metrolight FT Bullseye… http://www.themakogroup.com/optics/ftbull.html

Lots of Youtube reviews but I don’t trust those from the reviewers I’ve seen thus far. But heres one for reference from NRA.(seems unbiased but not determining) .. https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=RD4aJIHWoLyg4&v=vvFUO4vrsEM

After years of training on front site acquisition it seem this is going to be a Mindf$#k to retrain myself to rear site target acquisition….What about dropping this weapon and picking up another without it and then back again? Accuracy is going to suffer, correct?

I really like the non milled slide option and am seeing varying opinions from happy to great, but was wondering here what y’all might think.. At $200 just looking for more input before pulling the trigger….Anyone have hands on with it? Opinions?….Thanks!

General Preparedness Discussion • Re: JANUARY 2017 – What did you do to prep this week/month?

January 24, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

Well….Jan is almost over.(Thank you Lord)… It has been a heck of a month….lol. Looks like my Karma(in life) is getting better again so I don’t know what the heck I did to have January come down on me like a ton of bricks in every area of life you can think of, but who cares….Moving on…lol…..Laugh it off. :rofl:

couple of goals for 17 were RELOCATE and CONTINUE BUILDING MY KNOWLEDGE(reading daily whether it be in a pepper series for fun or technical knowledge…Solar, Well, and Turbine advanced principles being understood by month 6.)

Even with everything crashing down around me I was able to secure a job contact for main income in considered area of relocation…Awesome!…..Also confirmed internet speeds there are acceptable(2nd, 3rd, and 4th source of incomes….Nice!)

I’ve made a little time for reading and am getting the basic principles involved on Well water systems and drill prices in potential move areas. Just scratching the surface in turbine so far…

Other non-goal orientated items….. Inventory updated, Firearms cleaned, Secure Ammunition cabinet acquired (this was getting really out of control), read 2 prepping novels for fun, and of course, joined you guys.

I also got some great trigger time in on my new Sig P226 Scorpion that I treated myself to as my most recent addition…REALLY like this 9mm.

Hmmm…interesting post.

all the above (except “Safetown”…never heard of that and don’t even know if offered here in CA) and this beauty… http://www.suspicious0bservers.org/

Bens YouTube channel is excellent. I’ve been a daily viewer for 3-4 years learning the sciences you mention…He’s developed an app quaintly labeled “The disaster prediction App” that has it all including the daily updates and customizable alerts…..the most accurate earthquake prediction app out there IMHO.

nice to meet you Scout…

That’s because he’s a businessman, NOT a politician. He’s approaching governing more like a CEO runs a business, which is a refreshing change: for FAR too long, the politicians have been running the country in a way that, if it were a business, would have caused it to go bankrupt and fail. Trump wants to see our country succeed.

Agreed. I do feel that from him…Other than stopping the witch in any way possible, I felt that TRUMP’s ego is so big he wont allow anyone to stop him from succeeding…he’s going to be saying “See! I told you I’m great…Now put my face on Mount Rushmore (Censored word. I’m a Potty mouth)!(not that it will happen but the point rings true) :thumbup:

He also seems to be something of a workaholic. That’s a welcome change from President Golfsalot.

You mean the FORMER President Golfsalot… :rofl: :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

Same here, Reb. His Inauguration speech gave me hope. If he can do HALF of what he plans, we will be WAY ahead of where we are now. Let’s pray he succeeds. I especially like how he called out the politicians on BOTH sides of the aisle…he made them ALL uncomfortable, and rightly so! I’m hoping that he can heal some of the deep divisions in this country.

Same here….I do love that within minutes within the Oval office he issued an executive order to freeze all provisions in O-Boner care…..elected and immediately saves jobs and cuts government overspending on 2 separate projects while not even in office yet, enters office and immediately issues orders starting to fulfill campaign promises….If there’s one thing for certain, this man is going to preform! :thumbup: …Never in my entire life have I seen an elected official fulfill a campaign promise on their first day…..Hoping with a watchful eye on this guy.
