  1. The first statement that comes to mind for my fellow Armorers is "don't bother." Now for the dire hard scifi fan or Star Wars junky it's slightly worth your time, just slightly. WARNING: SPOILERS Overall the show fell flat. The tone is reminiscent of drinking Stella Artois from a tap just before the keg kicks: "mmmm beerrr...then ughhh" Our hero or villian, whatever the as of yet un-named Mandelorian turns out to be played by actor Pedro Pascal, he's definitely the strong silent type. Now while that's certainly the trademark of the previous Mandelorian characters from canon, Boba and Jango Fett it won't make good serialized TV drama. The first short 40 minute episode revealed nothing of the main character's, *ahem* character. In fact the episode revealed not much at all except for a very brief and unexplained glimpse into Madelorian culture via flashback. It was a like one 40 minute long scene full of irrelevant Star Wars iconography such as a pointless attack on the Mendelorian's ship by an angry space walrus. In this first foray into the Mandelorian the episode managed to give us two, count-em TWO "Mos Eisley Cantina" walk in, stare down the stranger with a dramatic silence moment as if such a thing was a must. We saw Nick Nolte CGI'd into a overtly arrogant and Yoda-like wise Ughnaught Moisture Farmer that proclaims himself a progenitor of peace thru conflict forcing our "Hero-Villian" to take a totally necessary "horseback" ride on a bi-pedal reptile to the location of his quarry's hideout which had the look of an abandoned Mexican strip mall. There, the Mandelorian bumps into a throw back to The Empire Strikes Back, an IG-88 bounty droid that keeps trying to kill itself but stops just because our hero-villain says so? Say what??? For the love of Yoda WHY?? And speaking of Yoda The Madelorian just couldn't help itself to dig back into the lore of the Force and the good vs. evil overtone of the original films by introducing an infant of Yoda's as of yet un-named species in what will certainly become the center of the 1st season's primary plot. We thought we were going to get away from the core story to see more of the underworld but instead, we got more core story which is currently dying a slow death thru superbly bad episodes 7, 8 and upcoming 9. The episode lacked even a single "wow" moment or any actual drama. Every character was cliche Star Wars except for Carl Weather's character Greef Carga who should stick to bad "B" movie action flix or playing Sylvester Stallone's sidekick. His character would look more at home on the promenade of Deep Space 9 then a smuggler's bar on some unnamed Star Wars universe world. While it's still very early and even some of the worst 1st season scifi TV premier's such as Babylon 5 and Star Trek: Enterprise eventually came into their own, the Mandelorian shows little hope in giving long dedicated fans of the Star Wars universe anything new. At best this is a 2 star show and frankly not worth the price of entry by paying for Disney +.

    Chart showing the day free-market capitalism died.

    November, 1910 - Jekyll Island Georgia...The U.S. Government was bought and paid for by the robber barons. It's been in private proxy ownership ever since.

    Agreed..the new 5.11 stuff is absolute dog crap. Mine tore in the thigh at the seem a year after I bought them..they never got soft either..stayed crazy stiff. Unfortunately they are about the only maker of tactical or utility pants for women.

    Talk to me about home security systems.

    I have a system because I live alone and am gone 190 nights a year. Its sole job is to make it it very difficult for anyone to snatch my guns...all my other crap is what renter's insurance is for. 3 layers of security there...front door, alarm system then gun safe.

    Talk to me about home security systems.

    I made this decision myself last December. I did a ton of research and read a lot of reviews. Initially I was gonna go with Simply Safe but read many alarming testimonials on the system reliability and hackability. I went with Frontpoint in the end. It swas substantially cheaper than ADT, I own the equipment and the account is portable if I move. The install was very easy and monitoring is $45. There is a contract which was the only downside.They use a smash protection base station and control pad so if a burgerler destroys keypad before it alarms it goes off automatically.

    Ted Cruze on gun control

    I think he chose to use the word "functionally" for a very specific reason now that I think about it.

    Ted Cruze on gun control

    And the guy on our side..supposedly fact checking Millano...didn't even have HIS facts straight: I don't know how I feel about this inaccuracy. I mean I've got a couple Class III items so maybe its better if the left is not generally aware that it is perfectly legal to buy an MG under Federal law. If they knew they'd probably go batshat and try to end that as well. I mean it's not like many of us are in the position to drop 30k on a transferable MG anyway. Maybe it's possible Cruz was intentionally not entirely accurate with his statement. Cruz fact checked Milano’s use of the Reagan quote, saying “Machine guns are functionally illegal right now.” The Texas senator added, “the machine gun has been functionally illegal for 80 years, you and I can’t purchase a machine gun.”
  12. So I've got some free time and have been asking all my friends if anyone has the time to meet me in the Caribbean this week...Most of them said: "Isn't there a hurricane down there?" Clearly...Public education has failed to teach geography properly. The Bahamas...are NOT in the Caribbean, nor are the Turks & Caicos nor (for some absurd reason some believe this too) are the Florida Keys. The Bahamas are geographically in the Eastern Atlantic as are the Turks. The Florida Keys border the Gulf of Mexico to the north and the Florida Straight to the south.
