VENT PAGE 122

Vent pages are handy for posting of off-topic posts, rants, raves, rages, etc, which might not be appropriate on other threads where adults are having serious discussions. Childish rant? Need to call another poster a name? Just feel like spouting off? Or even if you have something to say and there doesn't seem to be any other logical place to say it.

How can anyone with a straight face say 18 year olds should not have guns. Hell, we use 18 years old to fight wars. They use every type weapons there are.

"Broward County is one of the most Liberal counties in the country. It is also the county that had the “Hanging Chads” controversy . As of now, while facts may change, It looks like it was liberal ideals that allowed this to happen.

People are assuming that, somehow, Cruz “slipped through the cracks,” that possibly law enforcement didn’t follow-up, or if they did, they wrongly assumed Cruz was not a danger to anyone. None of that is true, and this is going to blow your minds: The Sheriff’s office did exactly what their internal policies, procedures, and official training required them to do. They intentionally ignored the signs and intentionally didn’t generate documents when it came to Cruz.

Why? Why would Sheriff Israel ignore a psychopath with guns? Because back in 2013-14, the Broward County School Board was in conflict over the number of arrests of students. They wanted to make that number lower so they could gain federal resources — in other words, money, lots of government money. So, they enacted new policies that, in essence, said students will not be arrested and that students will not enter the juvenile justice system.
The Conservative Treehouse did a 12-month investigation into Broward County and these troubling new policies back in 2014. CTH reports, “The need to continue lowering the student arrests year-over-year meant that increasingly more severe unlawful behavior had to be ignored. Over time even the most severe of unlawful conduct was being filtered by responding police.”

So, Sheriff Israel knew all about Cruz, (At least between the time of the shooting and the CNN Scripted Town Hall) yet because of these policies, Cruz never got arrested. Think about this and how that snake Israel was sitting up on that stage at CNN’s town hall, acting like he was just another victim of the big bad National Rifle Association, as he had the audacity to chastise Dana Loesch (A would be rape victim if not for her gun) — when the blood is on his hands!

And think about what that ROTC student told us. CNN didn't want his comments and gave him a script.

Now that you know the truth, isn’t it totally ridiculous that the mainstream media and those attacking the NRA are acting the way they are. And now another question comes up. The deputy that resigned. Why did he resign. Was it because he was a coward? or was it because he could not work for a department that would NOT let him run into the building to save lives?"

In WWII Americans rolled up their sleeves and pitched in. Even children collected aluminum cans. Now they tell us that with Trump’s tariffs on aluminum and steel, automobiles may cost an additional $165. Some people are wailing like stuck pigs. Never mind the jobs added in this country and never mind that Trump is making America great again. Snowflakes.

Wolf's Head said...

Most of the whiners about tariffs are the ones making money using imported goods.

However, there is a cost to the economy and our security when we send billions of dollars overseas instead of circulating that money at home, and strengthening our manufacturing base.

Independence from overseas steel and aluminum manufacturing countries, many of whom subsidize their businesses and exports, is just as important as freeing us from overseas energy producers.

Really, someone needs to bitch slap all these whining a**holes.

Besides the President, that is.

Anonymous said...

Tariffs are historically supported by liberals and labor unions (working together). They are "feel good" actions -- intended to protect jobs at home, but always result in higher prices within the country for everyone in a lot of unintended markets, cancelling out any benefits they may bring. Additionally, foreign nations affected by the tariffs will generally do the same thing to us in those markets we export, so for us, agricultural products and airplanes. So this might help steel workers, but could hurt the American farmer.

I like a lot of what Trump has done, but I've been interested in watching "conservatives" turn their back on traditionally conservative positions just because it is Trump taking these actions. Anger at "the establishment" has a lot of people performing ideological contortions, which they will obviously deny/attempt to explain away.

I haven't seen anyone here worry about Trump making statements about "taking guns away first, due process later." He walked it back later, but a lot of people would never stop posting if Obama had said this.

Sarkazein said...

Tariffs are one thing, but being screwed over the last several decades by every country in the world is another. I think Trump's tariff thing was a shot across the bow of those who have taken advantage of our weakness. Why should other countries change if the status quo is the rule of the day.
I don't know of any Conservatives who say a a known person with a brain disorder that is a danger to others shouldn't be disarmed. And there in lies the problem, who and what brain disorder is dangerous to others. Liberalism is a brain disorder, but not all liberals should be disarmed... most, but not all.

"Anonymous 6:28, you have not been paying attention. I predicted Trump just lost in 2020 with that statement."

Where? It's not on this thread. And simply saying Trump will lose the next election over that statement is not the same as condemning the statement and declaring him to be a treacherous establishment RINO. Rather passive if anything. You'd never shut up if Jeb Bush had said this, no matter what he said to walk it back later, but I have to hunt for your single statement that Trump as lost his next election on this statement? My statement stands.

guy faulkes said...

Goofus, I personally do not think Trump is a RINO. He is as anti establishment as Jeb Bush is establishment. However he made what I think is a fatal error when he back stabbed the Second Amendment. It is possible he might recover by actions supporting it, but it is highly unlikely.

What is interesting is your apparent belief that I should continue to belabor the subject when no one has disagreed with it, to the best of my knowledge. Even you do not do so.

Trump continues to do very well other than with his treachery on the gun issue. This is the first time that this situation has existed that I can remember. He continues to do a lot of good.

All that he does will not negate his support for the festering boil that is gun control. If this malady is not defeated politically before it erupts in an attempt to confiscate guns, then I fear we will be involved in a shooting war. If that happens, then God help us all. Whatever happens, it will not be passive.

Of course your statement stands. It is your opinion and everyone is entitled to his own, no matter how mistaken it happens to be.

The RINOs are, like I've said many times before, as bad as Democrats. Florida passed sweeping gun legislation under a Rethuglican Governor and Senate. Guy Faulks warned of Republicans being the ones to pass gun laws years ago. His prognostications have proven yet again as correct. Then we have our own anti gun thugs right here in Watauga County. The Watauga Democrat ran a rather sad article on School Safety and wherein school board member Ron Henries said: “We don’t have the power to ban assault rifles. We don’t have the authority to change laws ...

Does this mean that Mr. Henries is a fringe left socialist thug who would ban "assault rifles" and change the Constitution if he had the power? It begs the question, what else would he do for the good of society? The leftists (RINOs and Democrats) are out in the open now, and their intent will be pressed upon all of you as soon as they have the necessary means to do so. The Constitution won't save you. It's a relic soon to be ignored as it has been in California, Mass., New Jersey, Florida,New York and others.

Multiculturalism will finish off what the liberals socialists started. Want a preview of what happens when foreigners become the majority (coming very soon folks)? Take a look at South Africa where politicians are ready to take land and redistribute it to strangers. Think that won't happen here? Think again.

Did anyone see the letter some forlorn Republican wrote to the Watauga Democrat? The poor fellow is concerned that Democrats are wasting taxpayers dollars on unneeded high schools and recreation centers. Although he's right, Republicans on the Watauga County Commission won't help. If you remember the last election, one couldn't tell Republicans from Democrats. In fact, Republicans ran on the exact same platform as democrats - the education platform. All of a sudden Republicans are going to do something different? They had a chance, and when it became apparent they were unwilling to increase freedom, liberty, and personal responsibility, all while decreasing government power, I was forced to call them out. They lost the next election big time. What a bunch of dolts.

More importantly, the comments at the end of the letter say it all. Some fringe left socialist sheep called the letter writer out for not supporting education. The left is far better organized and ready to fight than Republicans. They have their well memorized talking points ready for immediate use. Marx and Stalin couldn't have engineered it any better.

I took a break off this and many other sites to see if Trump's willingness to fight would spark a fire in Republicans. It didn't. In fact it made them worse. They wobble around like drugged zombies unsure of what to do or say unless it's agreeing with democrats as they did in Florida. The rapidly vanishing majority spoke during the last election, and rethuglicans continue to ignore the disposed silent majority who will soon be a minority. For example, can anyone tell me what that idiot Richard Burr is doing? He blathers on about nothing as he's done his entire career. Pretty much a zero as I prognosticated in 2006 when he helped the Town of Blowing Rock defraud the public during the infamous Blowing Rock Land Trade.

The breadth and depth of liberal ideology is amazing. Although they are flawed in reasoning and judgement, they more than make up for it in extremism. When a certain credit security company announced they would no longer give NRA members a discount a few weeks back after the drug addled criminal committed atrocities at Parkland, Florida, I decided to release said company from employment. I started the cancellation process when the inevitable question was asked regarding why I was leaving. I said it was because the company was vilifying a group of people because they were Constitution supporting patriots. Within 24 hours the company refunded a pro-rated amount. No questions asked and no annoying calls with customer service reps. This NEVER happens with credit security companies - the cancellation process usually takes a while, typically a week or more. I was amazed at the aggressive leftist ideology displayed by a large corporation. I of course went to another company who doesn't discriminate against groups of people, but the fact the old company was out in the open in their vilification should be a clarion call for conservatives. Sadly it won't be. Dicks Sporting Goods should be out of business, so should Wal Mart. They don't seem to concerned.

Wake up folks.

Many uneducated Republicans may wonder why the House and Senate are at risk in November. Guess they still aren't listening to Patriots on this site. Unless the idiot Rethuglicans start running conservatives for office, they will lose. I seriously doubt the idiot rethuglicans are smart enough to realize this despite this fact being the very reason Donald Trump won the election a short year and a half ago. The memories of RINOs is short or non-existent. The "people" want to see someone who is ready to take on the fringe left socialist sheep who actively work to take our rights away. Flyover country wants to see conservative politicians call out idiots like the ones right here in Watauga County who want to get on a bus, drive it to DC, and take away God given, inalienable natural rights of American citizens. What people DO NOT want to see is another RINO Richard Burr who blabbers on about the most inconsequential things. I happen to receive "updates" from RINO Burr, and not one of his "updates" over the past 6 years is consequential to conservative Patriots, except to highlight how utterly stupid RINOs think you all are. He, like all RINOs (Rethuglican Watauga County Commissioners), dwells in the safe zone where they don't have to answer tough questions.

Remember all the faux conservatives (temple, Jenny, etc) who come on this site asking for support in elections while refusing to answer simple questions? Well folks, this is exactly why it's possible that rethuglicans will lose the Senate and House this fall. As I've said before, rethuglicans deserve to lose since they no longer represent those who elected them to fight big government and increase our freedoms and liberty. Florida Governnor Rick Scott didn't do the rethuglican party any favors by instituting communism in that state when he made it illegal for consenting, law abiding adults to buy guns.

You can't make this stuff up!!!

An inside update on the shooting. The perp was waiting behind the door on a disturbance call. When the deputy arrived the perp opened fire with 2 double 0 shotgun blasts hitting the deputy in his lower extremities. THE wounded deputy returned fire hitting the perp with 22 rounds, all from that deputies weapon He had the new SIG holding 22 rounds chambered in 9mm. The perp fired a total of 8 blasts from his shotgun. He is still alive in the room next to the deputy. The deputy is in surgery. One or possibly 2 other deputies were wounded by the perp.

For any Democrats reading this comment, the race of the perp is unknown by me and my inside source at this time.

First of all his thee back are irrelevant s no one stands still in a gun fight. Also, where is it written you have to be in front of a person trying to murder other people to engage him with gun fire? Finally, one does not shoot to kill, he shoots to stop.

It does not matter, Sark You should use the gun you are confident in your ability with which you shoot. Either a nine or a .45 will get the job done. Carry spare mags. The important thing is that you have the gun with you, not in your car or home in the dresser drawer. A gun is like any other insurance policy. When you need t, you need t bad and you never know when that will be. A .380 or .22 is far better than nothing.

Sarkazein said...

HOLD! HOLD!

guy faulkes said...

Sark, applause for Deputy Gaines is indeed warranted. He is obviously a tough man and is well trained in the use of his firearm. I would also be willing to wager he is a member of that subsection of LEOs that shoots regularly, either for recreation or a desire to improve his professional abilities to use this tool and improve his chance for survival. (It worked!)

This brings me to the reason for my answer of neither 9mm. nor .45 as the preferred round for law enforcement. The majority of LEOs unfortunately are mediocre shots with their service weapon. In my experience of shooting with them for about 50 years, LEOs come in three basic sub categories as far as competency with a handgun is concerned. Twenty percent shoot a lot and can hold their own with anybody. These are the officers that shoot competitively in disciplines such as the International Defensive Pistol Association or The United States Practical Shooting Association (although many of them do not shoot in a "competitive" mode but rather in a more conservative "training" mode.) Sixty five percent have handgun skill sets that are mediocre. This group shoots occasionally but not regularly. When they shoot, they seldom do it in a serious manner that would aid in the improvement of their skills, but are in a "plinking" mode. This leaves the fifteen percent whose skills are either poor or atrocious. They never fire their weapons except when they qualify. It usually takes several tries for them to be able to do so, even on the Basic Law Enforcement Training Course of fire which is ridiculously easy.

As we have this huge variance in abilities with the majority being mediocre at best, the high round count is very important. However the 9mm. although it is much more effective due to modern ammunition than it used to be, still requires better bullet placement than does the .45. When you have a top end of mediocre ability, bullet placement suffers with the greater recoil of the larger caliber. However, the slightly increased bullet placement with the 9mm. does not out way the stopping power of the .45.

For these reasons, I am a proponent of the .40 caliber for the use of law enforcement. It has significantly more power than the 9mm. and about the same magazine capacity as the 9.

The top end of law enforcement can certainly use whatever they want effectively. Jim Crillo of the New York City Police Department was the winner of more gun fights than any officer in the modern era. He used a .38 Special such as the one you carry, Sark.

I have to stipulate that these observations come from a lifetime of shooting handguns in a manner congruent to self-defense. I have shot with beginners that never held a pistol before all the way up to World Champions. The argument of the superiority of a heaver slower projectile over a lighter faster one will never be settled. I feel that the .40 is the best compromise available. Others may disagree, but I think my point is valid.

Law Enforcement Officers are a special group of shooters. They not only need to have the skills to protect themselves, they have to be able to protect me and more importantly my grandchildren. They need to attend required training in the use of their handguns at least once a month. Of course they should be paid for his training just as the bureaucrat that tells you what you can and cannot do with your own property is paid for his training. Every time this kind of proposal is mentioned, the reply is that there is no budget for it and it would cost too much. This led to a law enforcement shooting buddy of mine commenting that it must be more economical to bury an officer and hire another one than it is to train him.

Sarkazein said...

GuyFaulkes- Thank you for the informative read. The first time I heard a deputy say he preferred a 10mm, yours was the same reasoning he gave. I think I mentioned before that the most accurate I've ever been is with a Glock 45 cal.
My son changed his service weapon from 40 cal to 9 mm recently and said it's the current trend. He does not practice enough but is better than most.
For most LEO agencies here, be allowed to carry a revolver you were grandfathered in.

guy faulkes said...

As I said before, your son should not have to spend his precious off duty time and money to create and maintain skills needed for his job. This should be part of his job and he should be compensated for his efforts as are other public employees.
Some officers would like this. Many would hate it.

Sarkazein said...

GuyFaulkes- He shoots free and some ranges. He pays for ammo. It would make more sense to have an hour a week paid shooter's training. Or 2-3 hours every 2 weeks. I know he will go months without shooting at the range sometimes.

Sarkazein said...

GuyFaulkes- today, two peace officers in Florida were gunned down through the window while they were eating in a restaurant. So much of the blame for this lies right in the slimy laps of the Democrats and their demonization of peace officers.

guy faulkes said...

SArk, cops are like any other group. They are comprised of both good and not so good people. However, the not so good are easily discovered and should be dismissed. The demonization of cops is the same as the demonization of civilian gun owners. The left wants no one armed but themselves and their lackies. I used to say if a person did not want to bear the risks of being a cop, he should not be one, because a law enforcement career was really no more dangerous than many others. I can no longer say that. Cops are indeed being targeted by such organizations as BLM.

The sad time will be if the left prevails and guns are confiscated. Any cop is likely to discover a badge is not a shield, but a target due to the resulting civil war. If I were a cop and this wee to come to pass, I would not only refuse to do it, I would resign immediately.

I personally feel that one day of training should be required per month. Half would be firearms training and half would be tactical training. The training would be serious and not a goofing off session.
