  1. Water doesn't care about distance or direction, only gradient.
  2. Can't get coffee for two bits anymore either.
  3. A few years ago someone here posted

  5. We have rights as human beings regardless of the State. Many people, far too many, talk about "Constitutional rights" as if somehow the State bestows rights on us with some sort of magic wand. The reality is that those "Constitutional rights" are we the people telling the State, "Over these things you have no power, they are forever beyond your reach. " Or, "Keep your grubby, greedy paws off!" In W. VA Board of Education v Barnett the United States Supreme Court put it, "The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, t

  7. This is pretty darned cool! https://river-runner.samlearner.com/?fbclid=IwAR2Bs5sI8ggYT9EUsDAj9rlUn3oLeWq98NNCE3GBLWV_q02Q33UE0bRBChc
  8. We have an enclosed patio, our front door opens into it as does one of the front windows. One end of the couch butts up to the wall under the window. We have a small couch un the patio under the window. I had taken the screen out to clean it and wash the windows and it struck me that we could use it as a pass through- if Lisa was on the couch in the patio I could hand he drinks, books, etc. through it. Started leaving it open. Then one day to give our toy poodle a new challenge I tossed a tennis ball through it. It took a few days for her to get the idea that it was OK for her t
  9. If we get the "Hi! My name is Anthusa and I'll be your server tonight " line I'll often reply with something like, " Hi, Anthusa! This (pointing to my wife) is Lisa, my name is Joe and we're delighted to be your guests tonight!" Always gets a smile and a chuckle.
  10. And you have to get creative because others have taken what you wanted.
  11. CA tax on ammo and guns fails in Assembly. https://californiaglobe.com/section-2/firearms-ammunition-tax-hike-bill-fails-in-assembly-by-five-votes/
  12. .My guess is Sergeant Major.
  13. One of the Comcast channels. For me it's channel 195.
  14. Saw a good one yesterday: USMC SMJ
  15. You know the drill: CA appeals. 3 judge panel of the 9th Circuit upholds. CA asks for en banc hearing which overturns. Plaintiff appeals to SCOTUS. SCOTUS denies cert.
  16. A few years ago both Pew and Gallup released surveys that concluded that about 43% of all US households have at least one firearm. Using US Census numbers that works out to about 132,000,000 people with ready access to firearms. If we look at the total number of people harmed (killed or wounded) by misuse of firearms for any reason - crime, suicide, negligence, justifiable, etc. - it is about 120,000 every year, some years more, some years less. Now, make the false assumption that every death or injury is a single event, not a mass shooting, by unique individuals. 120,000/132,000,000 x 100
  17. Benitez issued a stay on his own ruling (again) to allow the State of California time to appeal. While I agree with his ruling I think it a huge mistake to in the next breath stay his ruling. Let it take effect and remain in effect until the State of California manages to appeal and get a reversal.
