    Another hate crime hoax

    It's a satire, but I thought this was good. https://babylonbee.com/news/jussie-smollett-offered-job-at-cnn-after-fabricating-news-story-out-of-thin-air

    I knew it. That raid in Houston was total BS.

    https://m.chron.com/news/houston-texas/article/Houston-police-shooting-affidavit-confidential-13620120.php Bryant told investigators he had retrieved two bags of heroin from the center console of Goines' police car at the instruction of another officer. That was not consistent with the affidavit used to obtain the warrant for the Jan. 28 raid, which said Bryant identified heroin brought out of the house. According to this article, they brought their own evidence with them.

    Earthquake on November 30, 2018

    I was in my truck on hwy 1 pretty much at the epicenter of the Loma Prieta earthquake. I thought I had broken a frame rail the way the truck squatted down and jumped sideways. I stopped and got out of the truck and the ground started rolling again. That's when I realized what was going on. Boy did I get nauseous! With all the busted bridges and landslides, it took me 12 hours to get to Los Angeles, about 350 miles. The next quake I was near was the Northridge quake. Fortunately, I wasn't on any of the collapsed bridges during either event. Major earthquakes are scary as hell.

    Another hate crime hoax

    I dont think this guy is that evil, but is an attention seeking dim wit. He came up with an unlikely story based on who he thinks we are without thinking it through. Given the racial tension that (in my opinion) that have been fanned to inferno level in the last decade, the consequences could have been monumental, but I really don't think he had put any thought into that aspect. If he did, then yeah, he is evil.

    Louvered bed cover for F150

    If you didn't need a pickup truck bed, why not buy a station wagon?

    Another hate crime hoax

    Brondo's got electrolytes. His attack is about as believable as Tawana Brawley's kidnapping.

    Another hate crime hoax

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/jussie-smollett-case-brothers-say-empire-actor-paid-them-to-participate-in-alleged-attack-source-says-2019-02-16/ I figured this was phony from the beginning. The two Nigerian brothers arrested in connection with the assault on "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett are no longer suspects in the attack. They're now cooperating with police. A source close to the investigation confirms to CBS News the brothers told detectives Smollett paid them to participate in the alleged attack on January 29 and that they purchased the rope — which was found around Smollett's neck — at a nearby hardware store.

    This is where I keep messing up...

    I cut it three times and it's still too short!

    Cold Civil War

    That is a good article. The only way I see it going hot is after the full mechanism of the government goes full socialist/communist. At that point, the military would be used to quash any conservative activists. That's doom and gloom, I know, but public perception is changing and will continue to change. With current trends, it may well be that future generations could get to the point that traditional people are seen as true enemies of the state. It could also be that the dems overplay their hand so badly that they are soundly rejected. I hope it goes that way, but I figured it had already happened and the midterms proved me wrong.

    Red Flag laws

    I hope I didn't leave you with the impression that I actually buy into the common sense label they put on those steaming piles. It is very much by design that the potential for abuse is there.

    Red Flag laws

    Just more common sense gun control. The description sounds reasonable, but the potential for abuse is huge. The abuse part is intentional, in my opinion.

    80 percent handgun

    I bought one and evidently my drill press vice didn't have deep enough jaws. If I squeezed the jig tight enough to keep it in place, the top started to open up. If I didn't tighten the vise to that point, the bit knocked the jig loose and buggered things up.

    Non semiautomatic open bolt?

    It says that the bolt is released during the pull, almost like a double action revolver. I had to look up release triggers, that sounds like a good way to develop bad habits, such as pulling the trigger before you want to shoot.
