Re: The Coming Civil War

All this talk of antifa has me looking at stats and that brought me across testimony today from the FBI chief. They’ve had nearly 100 domestic terrorism charges this year alone, which is more than all of 2018 combined. He’s quoted as saying “I will say that a majority of the domestic terrorism cases...

Re: Bug Out Gear Deals (Post 'em when you find 'em) I

No other big prime day deals for us? Seen lots of TV's and toothpaste. I scrolled through last night for hours looking for things. Saw nothing I bought myself a kindle fire8 HD because I don’t have a tablet and that would having one would be nice. Also got stainless pot set, along with a 15” cast i...

Re: Glow in the dark paracord.

Not a bad idea, another, though (though more expensive) is a tile. The GF has memory issues from a TBI when she was 9, so she has tiles on everything, water bottle, purse, keys, car, her crew bags, etc. They are expensive and do require power and a mobile device to use. but they have helped her thou...

Re: The Coming Civil War

Not everyone should have access to guns — domestic abusers, for example, have proven by their actions that they cannot be trusted with that kind of responsibility — and not everyone needs it. No one without a significant amount of training should be handling a firearm at all, which is why I think d...

Re: Seattle is Dying

Me too Boskone. But in the case of Seattle, a lot of them are being intentionally imported thanks to Amazon. In fact, for a while there were such extreme labor shortages here that I knew of coffee shops recruiting experienced barristas from Portland and paying for them to relocate. Trying to hire p...

Re: All Things Salt

Honestly, I think you are looking at this wrong. Salt is cheap. Buy a little extra and be done with it. If after five years there is no salt to be had, it aint coming back and you are going to have to procure a new means of getting it. I get this, however iodine isn’t a good thing when preserving f...

I'm looking to up my salt game. Besides being a mineral that we require, it also makes things taste good! That's kind of important when food may taste like garbage in a SHTF/PAW world.

Not saying anything against your experiences but, when it comes to buses that are part of a fleet (rentals, leasing, etc.) the plates are usually from where the company has their corporate HQ and not from where the vehicle might actually be used.

That is absolutely true. But I’ll guarantee you go talk to the homeless there, over half have been shipped up from out of state and another 10% shipped from within the state.
