  1. Would also like to see them fire off an email or phone call to their elected officials. I did see Dave Workman at the event. Would have like to see some NRA representatives but I guess they are busy in Virginia. http://www.thegunmag.com/hundreds-gather-at-wa-capitol-to-defend-second-amendment-rights/
  2. For those that might wish to refer to the Supreme Court case that sets limits on the separation of Church and state, I will include a link to the Library of Congress showing a letter to the Danbury Baptists, written by Thomas Jefferson. The decision pretty much came down to part of a sentence "make no law respecting an establishment of religion," Many forget to mention "or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," https://www.loc.gov/loc/lcib/9806/danpre.html
  3. Hadn't intended my report on exercising my right to freely assemble and address our government to create such a Donnybrook in the Saloon. I have been know to throw a punch or two. I'm reminded of the preamble to the Declaration of Independence which clearly states "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
  4. My dad retired out of Castle as the Base Sgt. Major. Much of Bomber's B-52 was filmed there in the 50's.
  5. I took the day off from work Friday to attend a Gun Owner's rights rally at our State Capital in Olympia Friday. It was a fairly good turnout, even with the snow and sleet. Did have a few NW SASS Pards present. I will try to attach a link to some photo's of the event. 2nd. photo has a good shot of Cedar County Sherriff. I was standing to his left, but I guess I wasn't photogenic enough. https://www.kiro7.com/news/local/photos-hundreds/N4IIWQTQP5ED5ENI6CORKYUL3Q/
  6. My apologies for the double post. The first didn't seem to post. Couldn't figure out how to delete the second.
  7. Hard to believe it came out 50 years ago.
  8. Allie Mo, I understand how you feel. I too am a second generation Californian on my Mom's side. I was born and raised on the SAC base in the Central Valley my Dad, the original Arkie Lee, retired out of. My fondest memories growing up are hunting and fishing the Motherload region of the Sierra Nevada. I got married during Gov. Moonbeam's first term in office and decided to move my new family to the Pacific Northwest. At the time even the D's had politicians such as Scoop Jackson and Warren Magnuson that would be considered conservative by today's standards. It has saddened me over the years to see how my home state has deteriorated as I have returned at the passing of family members. This deterioration seemed to become faster after the closing of the airbase in my hometown. The family I have left in Cali are my sister and my niece's new family who are planning an exit strategy. Please don't consider this as rubbing salt into your wounds, but I also have to agree with Sixgun Sheridan. Both of my daughter's families and I are currently planning exit strategies leaving the state we love. I will no longer be able to live here when I retire due to the political and financial constraints folks from other states have voted in since they moved here.
  9. My next door neighbors from Czechoslovakia came across the first week the wall came down. Immigrated to the US. Devout anti socialist/communist. Breath of fresh air here in the Seattle area.
  10. The wife and I got the basic model about 12 years ago. Added a 3 inch memory foam mattress pad from Costco. Have replaced the foam mattress pad once. Had tried a regular bed after sleeping on a water bed for 18 years and my arthritic shoulders couldn't handle it. Hop in the sack, put on my cpap and sleep like a baby on the sleep number.
  11. Shouldn't think of these as Blackouts. Consider them practice if the "Green New Deal" ever gets implemented.
