Last week I put everything I wanted to say on the subject of politics into a snail mail to POTUS. Now trying to get some real life stuff done.
Physical mail can take a long time to reach anyone's eyes because of security concerns. Best to use fax.

I'm a casual fan of the band, but didn't know of P-ear-t's (I wish the suddenly fawning YouTubers would learn to pronounce the man's name correctly before going online and tearing their garments in their eulogies) writings.

I have a number of new books to read.

Just another sign of a roaring economy and record low unemployment.  There are more jobs than people to fill them.   Companies are having to get creative in attracting new employees, and retaining existing ones.

Maybe, but job reqs are still specifying unicorns, and I haven't noticed any uptick in compensation.

Call me crazy, but this thought has crossed my mind:

OK, so maybe someone in the Iranian leadership had determined that Qassim Suleimani had grown too big for his britches, maybe a loose cannon even. But, Iran couldn't be connected with taking him out I'd think, knowing his power and following. So, Trump takes out the bad General, both the US and Iran benefit, and Iran lobs some softballs at the American base to appease the masses.

Nuts, or .......

Agree, had similar thought. The leadership doesn't seem too heartbroken over his demise.

Just the lifestyles of the politicians, celebrities and activists indicate the lie of Man Made Climate Change.  Oh they may buy a Fiskars, or drive a hybrid for the media, but own multiple mansions, ocean front property, yachts, private Jets, and use caravans of SUV's to get around.  They claim having a large carbon footprint is a bad thing, yet they have some of the largest.  Total hypocrisy.

They know it is a hoax and a scam, but the rich and powerful will benefit from draconian regulations and more taxes on the masses.  My other gripe is with pilots and aircraft owners that are Democrat supporters.  The same as gun owners that are Democrat supporters.  Either they are stupid, or just more huge hypocrites, or both.

Carbon footprints are for the "little people."

There used to be a guy on POA that worked for the National Park Service as a ranger.  He was one of the most radical, far left progressives around at that time.

Why do Progressives ruin beautiful places with once great Quality of Life.  I loved in Colorado (Denver burbs) for several years also.  Got to test out what I had been taught about density altitude and mountain flying for real.  It's all true, by the way.  :)

The Californians and other Bliss Ninny, Nanny State types have taken over the Front Range like all other population dense areas in every state in the country.  They like the lower taxes, reasonable cost of living and housing plus the natural beauty and recreational opportunities.  Then they demand more Gun Control, for Government on every level do everything to reinstate all the CRAP they left.  So taxes go up, housing goes up, and everything else is more expensive.  Freedom and Liberty are meaningless to these people.  Madness.

They're like locusts that migrate to ripe areas then decimate them and move on to the next.

I know too many FBI agents and other LEO whose firearm skills are marginal at best, amd barely qualify. You would be surprised at how many only shoot when they have to qual.

Then what  did the govt do with those billions of rounds they bought when Obama was in office?

People are posting online that guy who took out the shooter owns a firearm training business and is an instructor. Damn good shooting.

Spin Zone / Re: President Donald Trump Gives America Back Its Lightbulbs
« on: December 22, 2019, 09:29:14 PM »
In ANOTHER move towards reducing government nanny meddling, President of the United States (not hilary) eliminated the ban on incandescent light bulbs.

Liberals will surely hit the ground SCREAMING tomorrow that people are going to die because Americans are being allowed to decided for themselves they like.

I have no doubt that Stupid People are already sharpening up their drama queen level outrage at the insensitivity and racism involved in allowing American citizens to make their won decisions about heir lighting needs. Nothing stirs up a progressive (communist) like freedom to decide things, free speech, freedom of religion, freedom to own and bare arms, freedom to petition the government for redess of wrongs, etc... Just imagine the azures and steingars of the world waking up tomorrow in an America where people are FREE to go tot eh store of their choice and BUY the light bulb they think is right for them, instead of asshole liberals deciding for them.
