  1. Maybe in your area they get some of their components from Lucas Electric.
  2. Not so. A lot of men, too. Some of it is the history. Deny it all you like, but the history of England is an integral part of our history. Up until about 10 years ago I could rattle off the monarchs from Ecgberht through Her Majesty, Elizabeth, second of that name, by grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and of her other Realms and Territories, Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith. Some of us very much enjoy the pomp and pageantry that goes along with the long history. I'm also happy that we don't have to deal with such frippery here although, with some having what amounts to lifetime tenure in the Senate, House, or State Legislature, and able to pass that on to a hand-picked successor, it sometimes seems as if we have created our own class of royalty based on the ability to lie convincingly rather than on blood lines.
  3. Turnovers and dumb penalties. Youda thunk the Raiders were in the Ravens uniforms. Neither team we were rooting for won today, although I'm not all that unhappy that the Titans won.
  4. The President of the United States in the name of The Congress takes pleasure in presenting the Medal of Honor to MAJOR GREGORY BOYINGTON UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS RESERVE for service as set forth in the following CITATION: :/S/FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT
  5. 7 Jan 2020 Military.com | By Gina Harkins A junior Marine got his artillery unit into a serious bind after snapping a photo during a massive force-on-force training exercise in California's Mojave Desert. But one team was taken out by a different kind of threat, Lt. Gen. Lori Reynolds, the Marine Corps' deputy commandant of information, told reporters at the Pentagon. "A Marine in that exercise took a selfie of him being bored," she said. "It showed in that selfie it was an artillery unit. You could go geo-locate him, and you could see what unit it was. "They were like, 'OK, you guys are dead.'" It's a tough lesson for a young Marine to learn, Reynolds said. "And I'm sure that lance corporal was not happy," she said. "But it's OK to learn those things in Twentynine Palms -- we don't want to learn those elsewhere." Last week, the Army barred about 100 paratroopers with the 82nd Airborne Division from deploying with cellphones and other personal electronic devices, CNN reported. The North Carolina-based soldiers were sent to the Middle East amid rising tensions with Iran after the U.S. killed one of the country's prominent military leaders in an airstrike in Iraq. The Iranians have sophisticated cyber capabilities. Military leaders have for years been warning troops that their cellphones and other personal devices could give away their positions overseas. Now-retired Marine Commandant Gen. Robert Neller said in 2017 he wanted to end leathernecks' technology addiction. Cellphones, he said, were creating vulnerabilities. "You're going to dig a hole, you're going to camouflage, you're going to turn off all your stuff," he said. "... Because if you can be seen, you can be attacked." In 2018, troops' fitness trackers were also found to have shared sensitive information location data from military bases around the world. Reynolds is leading some of the Marine Corps' biggest cultural shifts in decades as the service tries to prepare for sophisticated new threats in the information space that can take down networks, locate troops and remove battlespace awareness. Maj. Gen. William Mullen, head of the Marine Corps' Training and Education Command, said Marines must rethink the way they fight. "We saw this out there at Twentynine Palms in an electronic warfare-type environment," Mullen said. "You can't do the normal command and control we're used to from Iraq and Afghanistan ... where you pick up the radio, everything's clear and you can always check on things." Every time Marines do that, he said, they risk being targeted or jammed.
  6. A 35 year old man has made the brave decision to stop living with his grandmother.
  7. Well, I say it sort of like "Wall-scharts." The guy who made the video says it more like "Wall-sheerts."
  8. Scott v. Sandford decision: " It would give to persons of the negro race, who were recognised as citizens in any one State of the Union, the right to enter every other State whenever they pleased, singly or in companies, without pass or passport, and without obstruction, to sojourn there as long as they pleased, to go where they pleased at every hour of the day or night without molestation, unless they committed some violation of law for which a white man would be punished; and it would give them the full liberty of speech in public and in private upon all subjects upon which its own citizens might speak; to hold public meetings upon political affairs, and to keep and carry arms wherever they went. And all of this would be done in the face of the subject race of the same color, both free and slaves, and inevitably producing discontent and insubordination among them, and endangering the peace and safety of the State." Seems that back in the 1850s it was recognized that every citizen had the right to "keep and carry" firearms wherever they went. Seems to have been recognized as an individual civil right.

  11. CHP , HAYWARD CA Pro-tip: If you are going to try to register a stolen car at the DMV, don’t bring your backpack full of drugs and guns with you. Yesterday, officers from the Hayward area contacted an individual at the Hayward DMV who was unknowingly attempting to register a stolen car he had purchased. After determining that he had purchased the vehicle without prior knowledge of it being stolen they advised him the car would be impounded and he was free to leave. The individual asked the officer for his backpack out of the car. Our officer explained to him he would have to prove the backpack was his due to it being inside a stolen vehicle. The individual said there was DMV paperwork with his name inside the backpack. Upon checking the backpack, The officers located the DMV paperwork with the individuals name on it as well as a stolen and loaded CZ 75 pistol, a large amount of marijuana and edibles, over 80 grams of crack cocaine, over 7 grams of powder cocaine, and over 26 grams of methamphetamine as well as a scale, bags for distribution, and a spooky scary skeleton mask. #badchoices #10851 #GTA #maskoff #mollypercocet
