    You forgot, “What the f are we gonna do now!”

    Around 1980 my friend and I got stuck in the snow when we ran off the side of a logging road way up in the mountains in the middle of nowhere. I had to cut about 40 little trees down and cut them up with a machete to make a base to get back the car on the road. It was snowing like crazy and we worked on it for over six hours until 2:00 in the morning. We didn't have any food, or a shovel and no way to contact anyone.

    My friend kept us laughing the whole time doing funny Paxton quotes from Aliens. Every time our plan seemed to get messed up a little He would say either “What the f are we going to do now!” or “Game over man, we're all going to f-ing die!” and various derivatives. He was really good and it helped keep us going despite what seemed like a losing battle during agood portion of the time we were stuck.

    I forget which on it is but one of the newer Clancy books had an assassin who injected people with a compound that caused heart seizures or something. Which the body quickly metabolizes into byproducts you.

    Such substances do exist. Over half of men over 55 in this country suffer from some form of cardiovascular disease. Half of men who die suddenly of coronary heart disease have had no previous symptoms. After poisoning with one of these drugs even with a thorough autopsy, the most that doctors could probably hope to find is whether someone had some form of heart disease previously. The problem is that “confirmation bias” would tend to steer the majority of coroners into believing that anyone who had one of the major risk factors had died of natural heart failure.p>

    On November 4 Pew came out with a poll that stated 60% of voters believed Trump had no respect for women, that 89% of blacks said that Trump had no respect for blacks, and that 71% of Hispanics said he had no respect for Hispanics. This contrasted with claims from the same poll that voters believed Clinton was basically a saint. There can be no doubt that Pew is a propaganda organization working for the left.

    Ruth is hanging on to hang on to the limelight for as long as she possibly can. Once she is out of the Supreme Court, she fears that no one will pay attention to her ever again. I am sure that she assumed that Hillary would win. So at this point her selfish tenacity has backfired on her. She most likely will be gone before the end of Donald Trump's first term. If she is still alive she will watch the composition of the court swing to the right in a way that none of us have seen before.

    Not Clancy, but it does bear a strong resemblance to the assassination method chosen by the CIA in “The Interview” movie. The CIA wanted the protagonists to kill Kim Jong-un by shaking his hand with a deadly substance on a small patch concealed on James Franco's palm.

Obama has used fraudulent Social Security numbers. If Obama and his allies continue with their subversive seditious activities undermining President Trump this should be held over his head.

    I see nothing in the Washington State Constitution granting him that ability. I doubt that any State law has granted him the power to pardon illegal aliens (felons, by their own act of illegally entering this country) under Article III, Section 9

    The problem is that the Washington State Supreme Court is completely dominated by liberals. They rule any way they want by leaving any contradictory facts out of their rulings. It is truly despicable, but the State Supreme Court can be counted on to support any part of the liberal agenda or any liberal politician like our law breaking governor.

    So, if a millionth of anything is insignificant, 400 millionths is also insignificant.

    Not to the liberal mind psychologically speaking. 400 has some significance in comparison to say... their monthly welfare check. But millionth, billionth, or million, billion or trillion has no meaning that they can relate to at all.

    Go read “How To Lie With Statistics”. You need to understand how shifting units (like trillion vs billion) is often used to over/under-state the scale of numbers.

    Yes this is an entertaining sub-discussion. It reminds me of global warming discussions about the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere. An essential trace gas that all life on the planet is dependent on and makes up approximately 400 millionths of the atmosphere is suppose to be controlling the climate. 400 millionths can be stated in many ways. 4 ten thousandths, 40 hundred thousandths, 1 twenty five hundredth, 1 in 2500, 0.04%. There is no "correct" way to state it.

    Most people are not able to fully comprehend the meaning of very large or very small numbers. The reference points are so far out of whack. So as outlined in the book you mention the propagandists choose whatever number they feel will be most effective at swaying people. There really is no correct way. With “climate change” they choose 400 millionths because people can grasp what 400 means and the “millionths” which should make it seem inconsequential gets ignored because a millionth of anything is almost meaningless to our minds.

    My little brother has been a Captain for Southwest Airlines for many years. He is close to retirement now. He used to get a couple of “standby” tickets every quarter when he didn’t call in sick to give away to his friend’s and family. The one instruction that I had from him when using them was, “do not complain about anything EVER!” So this is about as close as I have gotten to breaking my word.

    So many years ago my wife and I were using a couple of standby tickets for a roller coaster riding adventure at the amusement parks in LA. We needed to get back the next day so we could both go back to work. We showed up at LAX early in the morning and waited all day while every flight back to Seattle was full. The staff told us that the very last flight of the day was full also.

    As we were getting ready to leave, we were called to the gate over the intercom and then ushered onto the plane. I am not sure what happened but somehow there were two seats had become available.

    At that time my wife was almost a dead ringer for Sally Field. Ms. Field was very popular at the time; the resemblance was strong enough that staff pulled us out of line both at the Hard Rock Café outside of Universal Studios and also at the Knots Berry Farm Restaurant on that same trip. At the Hard Rock Café the chef even came into talk with us and told us about all the other celebrities he had met. When we told the staff that she wasn’t Sally Field they didn’t seem to care. I think that they like the excitement that it creates with the other tourists when they think a celebrity is in their midst. We just became part of the show.

    So when she was escorted onto the plane by two flight attendants and me... all these people had their mouths hanging open. She ended up sitting between two guys who wouldn’t leave her alone at the back of the 737. After that adventure she refused to fly standby.

    I was placed between two over 300 pounders flying standby between Chicago and Seattle. The plane was completely full. The flight attendant guided me to my seat. The guy was sitting in the window seat and his beautiful bride was sitting in the aisle seat.

    It would have been like the scene when Forrest Gump first tried to ride on the school bus (you can’t sit here) if it hadn’t been for the flight attendant who insisted they slide together or let me sit in the middle seat. One might think that since they were married that they would cuddle up together and let me take the aisle or window seat, but they preferred that I sit between them.

    There was virtually no chance that the seat dividers would go down. Even the food trays that come down from the seat backs ahead were a problem.

    Both were extremely unhappy about my presence and made it no secret that they blamed me for the intrusion. They had strong BO and sweated profusely during the entire 4 hour flight. My pants and shirt were soaked when I got off the plane.

    Fortunately, I had some ear buds and was able to listen to music and read a book using my phone which made the time go by more quickly. It took a couple of runs through the laundry before their scent came off my clothing.

    It is surprising to me that people choose to live their lives morbidly obese, but I have irrational behaviors myself. But it is a choice... no one is forcing others to consume far more calories than their body can use, that I am aware of. It is especially amazing to me the number of celebrities whose looks are important to their careers who also have become super fat. I am speaking of people like Brendon Fraser, Russell Crowe, and so many formerly good looking female stars. It is especially crazy when your livelihood depends on your appearance.

    Blaming McCain for the Forestall fire is just plain stupid. Too dumb to even find a proper adjective.

    The proper adjective could probably be used to describe someone who is a McCain defender in a deep state of denial.

    The story of McCain “wet starting” his jet and shooting flames and jet fuel across a deck filled with planes loaded with vulnerable old munitions are said to have begun circulating immediately after the tragedy. Smart guy, maybe you can tell me how many other uninjured Forestall crew members were immediately whisked away by helicopter

    Official whitewash aside... the people in charge most likely assumed because of his previous behavior and the eye witness accounts of the wet start that McCain was responsible. The truth about McCain is that he was a spoiled rotten hotshot and assumed he could get away with anything because of his family connections. He should not have been allowed to fly a military aircraft again after he destroyed the first one. Many lives most likely would have been saved.

    As far as the links I provided... those were merely the first two... if you want to take the time there are far more damning links further down in the search results. They are largely far less charitable than the two that I provided. So your little hissy fit aside... McCain is the most worthless RINO waste of flesh currently in existence. He should be charged with sedition and thrown in Gitmo before he manages to do any further damage.

    Tigerseye, what do you call someone who has lost 5 military aircraft. John McCain is one of the few who has achieved that dubious honor in modern times. if one does a “Google” search of “McCain hot start” and you will come up with 1,450,000 links that start with two that I put links to below. If you want to be John McCain’s biggest defender, you have your work cut out for you. There are a large number of people who feel that McCain did not follow proper procedures and contributed to or may have been largely responsible for the Forestall Fire.

    Most military pilots who have lost 5 airplanes are considered either very unlucky or they have a careless or inept pattern of behavior that makes them unqualified to continue to be a pilot. Whether or not McCain’s actions had something to do with the Forrestal fire could probably be debated for a long time. But the fact remains that he lost 5 aircraft during his career, a number during the time period in question that would have grounded any pilot whose father and grandfather were not admirals.

    At this point we have another 40 years of performance to evaluate whether McCain is unlucky or dangerous. Most reasonable people would conclude that his pattern of behavior made him dangerous as a pilot and even more dangerous as a politician.

    My wife I had a similar experience with the Orlando TSA. We were two older white people standing in a very long very “multicultural” line. There were many younger people who would cause most others to cross to the other side of the street if they were walking toward you after dark.

    Yet the ones they pulled from line and had strip down to our underwear were my wife and I. We were both clean and neatly dressed and do not look threatening in any way. My assumption is that we looked like we would put up the least amount of resistance of all the people in line.

    I can share that I have been present during lots of pat downs while working with the police. I have never seen pat downs with the police that were as intrusive as what my wife and I experienced. It was disturbing.

    The wall on the Southern Border will be good both in terms of actual deterrence, but also as a symbol. Currently people who want to enter the country illegally look at us as a nation of suckers because it is incredibly easy to get here and to take advantage of the situation. They are bleeding us dry in a myriad of ways; making this observation has nothing to do with racism; it is a fact. Everyone here illegally needs to go or face harsh consequences. We will have a problem as long as the incentives to violate our laws outweigh the consequences.

    My wife did some volunteer work in Seattle today. I went to a McDonalds to get a couple $1 large soft drinks for the two of us along with a couple sandwiches off the value menu for around $1 a piece. At McDonalds in Seattle large soft drinks don’t cost $1 like they do everywhere else in the surrounding area... they cost more than $2. The cheapest items on the value menu in a Seattle McDonalds are $2 not $1. Prices have not gone up a little; they have more than doubled.

    The minimum wage in Seattle is now $13.50 an hour. I noticed that the Arbys we used to go to was boarded up as was the Taco Bell and the Taco Time. So not only was the food at McDonalds twice as expensive, over half the fast food restaurants that we once ate at had already gone out of business along with the jobs that they used to provide.

    My wife and I were in St. Augustine Florida which was founded by the Spanish in 1565. Many of the permanent structures built next to the water at that time are still standing. Yes, there has been a slow and steady rise in Sea levels since 1565, but even with all the leftist wishful thinking the rate of rise has not increased during the modern era. If you try to look it up you will be inundated with crap from leftist websites claiming that St. Augustine will be under water soon and that there has been more flooding as more people have moved into the area.

    If you look at almost any historic landmark on the water along the East Coast, West Coast, or Gulf of Mexico you will find some far fetched excuse from leftists about why each of them does not appear to be sinking into the ocean. It seems that nearly every historic landmark in the United States is located on ground that is rising at nearly the same rate as the seas. This probably includes President Trump's properties so I don't think that he has a lot to worry about.

    Turns your shotgun into a rather accurate musket.

    I have slug molds along with various buck and round ball molds. I have always appreciated the creativity that loading custom shotgun cartridges allows as compared to reloading rifle and pistol cartridges. Strangely enough, I had not thought of printing out projectiles with filaments that are infused using my 3-D printer. This would seem to open up a new world of possibilities.

    I have to admit that my favorites are likely to remain my Lee Slug molds. You would not believe how fast you can churn them out. They look like giant hollow cast bullets. You don't actually even need a shotgun shell press to use them. You can actually cut the end off of a birdshot cartridge using a knife or a special tool leaving the roll bead, remove the birdshot and then press a couple “nitro cards” and the slug into the shell in place of the birdshot. There are numerous videos showing how to do this on Youtube. It makes for a fun day at the range making big holes in stuff.

Which is in line with many current but little publicized estimates from ICE and the boarder patrol.

    When Costa said Trump was undermining the 1st amendment; I was kind of hoping Trump would say the media is doing it to themselves. But it just does not matter. He is doing a very good job handling these bozos, and drawing it out reemphazis his point.

    Good for Joey the Squirrel!

    My wife brought home a squirrel that had been hit by a car. The back half of the squirrel was paralyzed so she called the “wilderness vet” to ask them what to do. They said she was breaking the law by illegally harboring a wild squirrel. They said she needed to immediately bring the squirrel in to be put down or they would call the police. My wife hung up on them at that point.

    We had a wienerdog who became paralyzed after jumping off our John Deere bulldozer; he got better after a couple months. We had the squirrel for 2 months and it got better except for its tail which it no longer could curl over the top of itself. So we let it go and it hung around our house for a couple years after that.

    We named the Squirrel Princess Meany Pants. She was never happy about our efforts to help her out. Even with its back half paralyzed it was still much stronger than you would ever expect. She scratched my arms up on a couple of occasions. She had very strong jaws and did her best to bite through the leather gloves that I wore when handling it.

    So my whole point is that even though squirrels look cute they are strong, they have sharp claws, and they have powerful jaws. If you had a well trained gang of squirrels they could definitely discourage intruders in your home. Unfortunately, the one we sheltered for a while wasn’t trainable and never became friendly toward us. I assume Joey was rescued by his owner when he was very small.

    Have no clue; am not a politican, having been screwed personally by both Republican and Dem Presidents; let him figure it out; is why we elected him, isn’t it?

    PIF I have noticed your posts for quite a while now. I think you could come up with some ideas. But I get it... you are a bitter old guy who blames the government for various hardships that you have faced. You even blame President Reagan personally for the loss of your high paying tuna boat skippering job. You know more about the ins and outs of that than other people here. But I can assure you that there are others participating in this forum who have lost a lot more than you because of irrational government actions.

    Sometimes it doesn't take a whole lot to help change the course of history. You are a person with an extremely interesting background and volumes of knowledge which could be of great help to the new administration. This actually is one of the locations that some of those responsible for advising President Trump peruse more than occasionally. I would personally be very grateful if you would try to use some of your past history combined with your creativity to try and come up with some good suggestions for our new president. I believe that you have more of an opportunity to make a difference than you realize.
