Folks, ... He's not your friend.
Yes, I know he supports the Second Amendment. He's endorsed by a bunch of conservatives, and lots of other stuff.
He has no power. No police officers to back him up. No Soldiers or Marines to make his findings stick. Nothing, Na Da.
Plus, ... the House of Representatives and the Senate are up for reelection with some folks very, very pissed about the newest Supreme Court Justice.
You're either in this so-called fight for the long haul, or you're going to let the other side win.
Either way, ... Don't beat your swords into plowshares, just yet.
Doom and Gloom
Things You Might Want to Think About
It isn't 'white' flight. It's 'anyone smart enough to understand what's going on' flight.
Yeap, we need socialism, just like the Chinese.
Dude did a good deed, saving the young lady.
The author then uses it as a way to attack President Trump.
News organizations wonder why people hate them.
What's your plan?
Lady of the Lake
I love this story, so will you.
Dude, ... Where were you during the Obama Administration?
Wow, ... they still don't understand why some people hate them.
As this article points out, purchases of firearms are down, again, so some manufactures are having financial problems.
My thoughts, ...
The 'new' money is in accessories, such as red-dot sights, magazines, slings, and other stuff because people have been worried about getting their guns, first.
Nobel Peace Prize
Samuel Colt, John Browning, and even though I hate to admit it, William Ruger would have been better choices for receiving the Nobel Peace Prize, for this reason.
Most people forget, ...
Robin stole from the undeserving rich (Bernie Sanders, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Nancy Polosie, and many others) that were oppressing the poor and powerless people of the area. Not the people that had earned their wealth, legally and ethically.
We still have a problem with slavery, ... in other countries.
This must be a BiCoastal thing.
Ooops, it is!
How healthy is your employer?

"These November elections will be illuminating. The professional Left has staked its claim in paranoia and hysteria. The results this November will tell us just how damaging to a nation that claim can be."
"Still bad things happened."
"On nearly every question and issue, the tenor of the press — shockingly — mirrors the tenor of the Democrats who insist that it falls to Kavanaugh to disprove these allegations."
"But this is not intended to be a book review based on a so-far partial reading. It is to say that even some of the best analytical minds of our time are missing the main thread of the story: that human affairs in the 21st century have entered a hazardous period of disorderly change largely due to that age-old pitfall of making ever-increasing investments in complexity with diminishing returns. That is exactly how societies collapse and that is where things stand in the Time of Trump. One might even theorize that Mr. Trump’s simplemindedness is a kind of virtue in the face of runaway complexity. His instinct, at least, is to repel it."
"In the present era of decadence, Universal Basic Income (UBI) is the modern equivalent of Bread and Circuses"
"Next on tap for this beleaguered nation will be a constitutional crisis and a financial crisis. It’s difficult to predict the order of their unfolding, except to say that these will open up a maelstrom of losses which will then be hard to either adjudicate or correct, once our system of law is compromised. As this occurs, all the raging hysteria over sex will be overshadowed by real existential issues as the people lose their homes, incomes, and futures and desperately search for a way out of more chaos than they bargained for."
"It’ll start the minute the next nominee is named. For the Democratic Party refuses to accept that it lost the election of 2016. And if it can succeed in torpedoing Kavanaugh, it’ll be made to believe future election results don’t have to be accepted either."
"Willing to destroy any part of government they cannot corrupt with partisanship, members of the self-declared resistance are tearing America apart because the election didn’t go their way. They have unleashed a whirlwind of fanatical hate, with violence now routinely threatened and sometimes carried out."
"You are disgracing yourself here. Please stop bending to the will of deranged online trolls."
