Re: Social Unrest Going Viral Globally

TacAir said: The protests may be driven by economic factors, rather then the other way around. More precisely, they're driven by rising popular anger over corrupt and venal elites that have rigged the system for their own advantage, while systematically plundering the 99%. At some point the 99% are...

Re: Tactical bags that don't look like tactical bags?

Sorry, work tough clothing is mainstream. Still have Carrhart from high school. But they just opened their largest stores in Manhattan. And Brussels.

Re: Tactical bags that don't look like tactical bags?

I fight hard to prevent drawing full conclusions. But I do collect one premise after another. If I make it to the end of a sting I try to remember the completion and consequence. In the old language, it was called a stereotype, ancient Greek for "firm impression." "Stereotype," in a funny way, is be...

Re: Mexico becoming a failed state?

The "targeted" explanation is half-assed. Does it mean the cartels and their sicarios are protecting land or ending this family expansion?
Sad that this sickness cannot be stopped because the demand signal is so very high.

Flybynight. Blending. You totally get it. In a world where everyone is trying their best to get noticed, I don't pay that much attention to 'grey man' talk. It's not that hard.

Moab, apologies for the delay. I was in STA at the same time but on the East Coast. (Unus Supra; More privately if you desire). School seats for 1st & 2d MARDIV and Quantico, and ARS, were difficult and good platoons provided much of the same training in house. Visited some of the same places throug...

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

One of the things missing from PAW fiction is that there is a segment of the population that likes to bitch about everything and constantly undercut whoever is in charge. When the nice people are in charge these people make things divisive and actually more difficult to get things done. Since they ...

Re: Eye Glasses & recomendations

Sorry that my point may have not been clear. People tend to look for a panacea, an elixir, remedy, THE BEST ONE, which one can lean toward as the sole answer to every problem. Seldom is this the answer. A really good Swiss Army knife may be all that one needs for just just about anything -there are ...

Maybe it's the sniper training I received in the Marine Corps. Wow, I don't remember reading that before MOAB. Which school, what class? I may know you. Regarding bags, and modern tacticalnessity, one could simply buy a backpack that is not black, OD, or one of the browns. Or one could be creative ...

Re: Has anyone heard of scaring sticks

Interesting. Came across them several times in books in the past few months. In Barbara Kingsolver's book, The Poisonwood Bible, a village in the Congo uses them to drive animals into a killing zone. In Thomas Berger's book, Little Big Man, the Human Beings (Cheyenne) use them to drive plains animal...

CIVIL: relating to ordinary citizens and their concerns, as distinct from military or ecclesiastical matters. I chuckle every time I see the "no politics" rule mentioned in threads about war.
