    A little more James Comey news

    LOL! Funny how the IG is finding that if anything Comey should have kept his mouth shut on ALL ongoing investigations instead of only on Trump's. Hillary's were the only ones he publicly stated he was investigating, then cleared and then reopened just days before the election. Donald even tried to claim he fired Comey for doing that to Hillary,. Just broke his heart that a Republican Director could be so dastardly to his opponent at such a crucial time. But then he let the real reason for the firing slip out to Lester Holt, the Russia investigation.

    Sure doesn't seem to be. You might want to google the law itself to make sure, but that's the way I read the revision that took effect 3 years ago.
  4. Well Ted "no balls" Cruz is actually standing up and taking a stand for a change. https://www.mrt.com/news/politics/texas/article/Ted-Cruz-introducing-legislation-to-keep-migrant-13005089.php

    That appears to now be out of date, at least as of the law change in 2015. Sorry-did not see that date when I posted the first one. http://truthvoice.com/2015/03/changes-to-ohio-gun-laws-take-effect-march-23/

    Cal was talking handgun magazine capacity limits earlier. Texas has none but I came across this for Ohio (15 max) https://www.buckeyefirearms.org/analysis-ohios-magazine-capacity-limit

    Worst cities to live in

    9th ward in N.O. used to be until Katrina floated it away. I've never liked being in that city. All paranoid antenna were running in top gear all the time the last time I was there (before Katrina). EDIT: And isn't that Ghoolie's house in Memphis on the right?😁

    anyone own a 10mm semi auto?

    While looking at other pistol comparisons I came across one of my favorite guys talking about the "3-screw" Ruger Blackhawk single action .357 mag. revolver. I have one of those I bought during that window he talks about ending in 1973 (got mine just after Vietnam in 1971). It is by far the most accurate handgun I have ever fired and seeing the video again makes me want to carry it again on my Colo. hikes. I used to carry it openly on hikes outside the National Park (they were very strict then, but now recognize any state LTC) because I always thought (before the days of bear spray) I'd rather be sited for carrying than be mauled by a mother black bear. I did run into a couple of forest service rangers over the years, but they were outdoors people like me and never said a word even though it was in a belt holster in plain site. I love the trigger on that thing. It's always a surprise when it goes off and that minimizes any flinching or leaning in. Like the guy in the video I'll never sell it. I plan to teach one of my grandsons to shoot it well when he's old enough and pass it on to him when I get too palsied to shoot it anymore.

    I had such poor luck with that Kel-Tec double stack that I just avoided them altogether. If I can't react well enough with a 7 +1 then just shoot me. LOL! However you can also get a 9 round single stack extended mag for the Ruger if you want a little extra hand room and 2 more rounds. I'm looking forward to my yearly trip to Colorado coming up soon. Got all my hiking stuff together and ready to go. I have a cousin who will be there on a 10 night stay in the park with some friends and I'm invited to stay for any overnights I want or just walk the trails with them during the day. If they don't have any I may leave my bear spray with them each night since the black bears tend to forage for food at night in the park. I'll certainly tell them about securing their food on ropes up in the trees.

    I liked that one as well. But I've owned Rugers all my life and just could not make the switch. And the one I got is very easy to conceal and extremely accurate so I'm happy. Never have had a hung round in a Ruger semi-auto pistol. I can't say that about the Kel-Tec P11 that was stolen from me. Glad it was stolen. Gave me an excuse to go shopping. That Kel-Tec made me "gunshy" about switching to any other brand ever again, so back to the Rugers.😍

    Happy Father's Day!

    I'm waiting for them to change the rules so I can toss it in the air and see how far and how accurate I can send it with my racquetball racquet. I'll even use the blunt end as a pool cue on the greens.😜

    LOL! I bet he could bearly see his way home to his mama.πŸ™ˆ
  13. Works as well as yours. And has more basis in fact. I'm not the one who lies constantly like King Liar, helper to the parents of Korean War MIA's at their request. Now that's drivel for you. And he pushed it again even after it was questioned by the math.
  14. It's either 49 or 144. Those sound like good numbers to use if you just make something up on the fly. LOL!🀴
  15. Trivia question of the day. How many trivia threads has Gip started from the final day of the draft through first KO for real in the past 5 years?πŸ˜‚
  16. Well then there is no reason to signal any willingness to pardon him or anyone else is there. Why have the pardoning powers even been brought up if not to send signals to shut up? Funny how there is no connection and 144 days as campaign chairman has turned into 49. Nope no tie in here at all other than to one more Trump lie. And BTW only a fool would actually believe Trump will save him if he's found guilty by jury because he didn't take the "deal" to testify truthfully. The word of a chronic pathological liar is about as good as a used condom. What was true a year ago about King Liar is still true today. https://billmoyers.com/story/donald-trumps-lies/

    I tell my grandkids I want accuracy from them. They can call me old Grumpy Gramp and I reward it with M&M's or fruit of their choice.🀩

    New Stadium in Las Vegs

    Yeah but who can really watch a sport where little pansies go down holding their knees all the time as slow-mo catches the non-contact. Then the trainer gives a "miracle cure" and off they sprint to the next "collision". I'd rather go outside on a hike and watch the biannual Monarch Butterfly migrations through my part of the world.πŸ¦‹ 🌻⚽ 🌻

    So much winning...

    If Trump ever makes a visit here I will offer to take him for a free meal at the local Wingstop Restaurant. He's earned it.πŸ˜‚
  20. So much emotion and feeling! LOL! Isn't it time to tell us how corrupt the I.G. is too? After all they found no basis for any of those to be indicted, just reported they showed poor judgement. Sorry Cal but these conspiracy theories are clouding your judgement of character of "the person in question" which is Manafort, not all these other yahoos. Just more misdirection from all these persons close to Trump who have either already plead guilty or are under indictment for felonies that carry major prison sentences if found guilty by juries.

    While on that Subject

    Been to Los Alamos in N.M. but never to the Trinity site there. It's only open to the public the first Sat. in April and Oct. every year.
  22. First...............catch a salmon. LOL!🐟 2nd find some lady at a local farmers market selling blackberry preserves. Barring that try Hero Blackberry Preserves or Bonne Maman (about 13 oz in a jar of either.). Or any brand that you particularly like that is decently thick. 3rd take about a pound or a little more if you wish and form a "boat" of heavy duty alum. foil around it to hem in the sauce so it kind of bastes in it as it cook. Place that in a deep glass dish of about the size to fit in the boat. That's just in case the boat doesn't hold. 4. Mix the preserves (the whole jar) with about a 1 1/2 shots of Black Seal Bermudan rum and just a tab bit of lime juice (maybe 1 tablespoon max-less if you want it sweeter) 5. Spread most of that mixture evenly over the salmon (skin down--meat up), but save a little for people to spoon a little fresh mixture over the cooked fish if they want. 6. Heat the oven to about 380 degrees and bake on the middle rack for about 30 minutes. To be sure it's done just use a fork to see if it flakes easily apart in the thickest part. Tales a little longer for a thicker filet from the salmon. Serve it up and spoon out the sauce that bakes with the fish on top of each serving as much as desired by each person. I just leave a deep spoon there for them to decide and also the extra leftover uncooked sauce if they want a little more of a spread on top. It's simple as anything but sure is good.πŸ˜‹
  23. Ain't nothin' better'n my salmon baked with/served in my homemade blackberry preserves Black Seal rum sauce. Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmy!!!πŸ˜‹

    Rocky Mountain National Park

    I have been hiking this park since around 1974 on a yearly basis since either my parents and now my brother have had homes in Estes Park since that time. I lived in Greeley and Cheyenne for 8 years in the 70's & 80's and walked so many of it's trails my daughter gave me a gift of trail patches for my backpack, but just too damn many to sew on. I included this video to show you one of my favorite that starts near Bear Lake and is almost a 10 mile round trip starting around 9,000 ft. and goes up around 11,000. I always pack on a pair of lightweight snowshoes for this hike because even in July (I'm going there in about 3 weeks) there is unmelted snow between Mills Lake and Black Lake, a part of the trail with spectacular views. This will be the first year I have ever taken a lightweight portable one time use oxygen supplement along just in case. Since I usually spend the first week on daily hikes at lower level trails I have never needed that before, but I have to admit that I'm no spring chicken @ 71 so better safe than sorry. The last few years I've always carried aspirin to chew on in case I get any sudden chest pains. This year I also plan a hike on the other side of the divide on a trail I've never been on to an old gold miners ghost town called Lulu City (even has a cemetery). This walks up the headwaters of the Colorado River. That is a less used trail and one more likely to see a lot of wildlife as in elk and maybe even a bear or two. I figured I better do that one now since I've always wanted to, but just never got around to it since it's about a two hour drive over the divide to get to the trailhead. Here's a video of the Black Lake hike.
  25. Look at this poor guy. He ends up getting life for a simple traffic stop.🀐
