Re: COVID-19 Chat Thread

Well now that the COIVD has turned bust and we appear to have all been lied to we have a new convenient catastrophe to focus on.

Re: Current Civil Unrest

Anybody else notice the prevalence of skateboards in a small group of protesters at each site? I think they've changed tactics from "flagpoles" or banners used to break Windows or club people to this. Gives the bearer a reason for wearing a helmet too. Those are the anarchists. Let's not forget the...

Re: Current Civil Unrest

Due to the widespread nature of these riots, I have taken the liberty of renaming the topic to better describe what is being discussed in this thread. I tired to do that earlier and could not. Here is a city by city roll call of current protests and or riots: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nat...

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

Too young to remember the 60s Civil Rights movement? The anti-draft riots? My point exactly, to call either a Civil War sounds absurd to my ears, but we have fundamentally different definitions so we are unlikely to agree to that point. As for the former, it was my impression the majority of the vi...

Re: Minneapolis Riots

Liberty Doll is going on about all of this and more on her YT channel. I do find it rather non-ironic that armed protests around the country resulted in zero property damage and zero injuries while "unarmed" protests resulted in seven people shot and more than a billion in property damage. One had ...

Re: Minneapolis Riots

I've seen the videos online and from my armchair point of view, nothing that was done warranted the use of that much force on him. I'm no cop and I don't play one on TV, so I'm not going to make comments on what the officers involved in this debacle could've done. I don't know what I'd do in that s...

In the video the state police find the four people not doing anything illegal in the whole city and arrest them, violating their civil rights.

Re: Minneapolis Riots

Do the rioters think the police or local government look at the fires and looting and think "Hmm, maybe the locals are right. We need to fix whatever it is that caused the problem and make sure nothing like this happens in the future. Thank you for showing us the error of our ways, rioting populace...

Re: Minneapolis Riots

The CNN crew was released. It was actually the State Police who arrested the crew after the local police left them alone. I know the mayor is taking a beating for all of his failures but there is plenty of room for the governor to jump in there and take his fair share too. But at least he is sort of...

They have moved past retail shops and government buildings and are now working on bars and factories, including a maker of medical supplies to figh...

These appear to be ongoing and building. If you have been social distancing from news media the last three days a senior white police officer appears to likely have been the proximate cause of death of a black man being arrested for a white collar crime. There is some video footage of the rather lar...

Anybody have a recommendation for one of those bags that goes over the stock of a bolt-action rifle? (traditional looking rifle stock.)
