I think Ron is mostly upset that "the f*ckewrs dont wave"... but I'm only basing that on the fact that he has mentioned it several times.

Well Ron

it sounds like your neighborhood is getting a lot of law enforcement attention

pretty much exactly what you want, right?

and judging from your comments about how shitty it is where you live, about time too!

Just sayin, if you got a little chemistry and a recipe book.,

Try any surplus store for tactics. Should we have the how-to manuals so easily accessible? Its not the anarchist cookbook crap, its the same manuals used to train our own armed forces. There are other books around with accurate explosives recipes. Its free stuff. Cars- NOT essential for convicts. Agreed, theyre regulated. Not enough. Too many "accidental" deaths, by far.

Like i said (yeah, lets go over it again!), there are such things as reasonable regulations. you and me just disagree on what those are and how effective theyed be.

And i like berries better than apples or oranges, regardless of the nutrients. Just sayin.

I don't think so. But it doesn't seem worth getting all up in arms about right now.

I'm not sure we do, but I'm pretty sure you think we do.

That's sorta what I remembered of his take too...

You're kinda being picky there, Ron. You want airborne waves now? High speed back pats? How about they throw you down a corn dog cooked on their chopper motor while they're at it? Hahaha... Less government, more Walmart greeters!

Ron, i see the problem. Theyre too busy scoping the ranch there to notice you waving. Id think youd be glad they step up enforcement.

As to the dino rock thing, who knows? Maybe they never raw a climber before.

Cigarettes: regulated, and very easy to walk away from.

Well, sort of. Not in the ways necessary to correlate with proposed gun restrictions.

And, again, not so easy to walk away from. At least here in Colorado, my experience is that smokers don't stay very far away from doors, and the crap carries.

I don't want to inhale ANY of it, and why should I have to be the one that walks away? I'm not the one polluting myself and the atmosphere all around me with deadly toxic fumes. I want LAWS, damn it... with TEETH!

And kids typically cannot "walk away." It's in their homes, their cars.... If you're a kid growing up around smokers, it's absolutely pervasive.

So, I think we're a FAR cry from regulating cigarettes like we are proposing to regulate guns, both qualitatively and quantitatively.

Now, I'm not saying anybody here is opposed to such regulation. Several have stated they would also be in favor of that. But there's no frothy thread on that subject, nor will there be. And there's no congressional hand-wringing on that subject, nor will there be. And to me the question remains whether or not such legislation could have the desired effect.

And what about FAT? What parents do to and allow to happen to their fat little kids is surely criminal. The statistics on this front make all others pale by comparison. Another slow but sure premature killer, not to mention the losses in lifestyle and productivity. Again, neither proximate nor sexy, but statistically VERY significant. I want anti-fat legislation to protect these poor kids.

Save the whales!

We made ieds that blew matresses into the air quite a distance!

Just the kind of non felon who should have unlimited access to all the guns they want.

Take some personal responsibility and remove yourself from the threat, or at least tell the fukers they are breaking the law. YOU can do that with cigarettes. Not so easy when someone is pointing a gun at you.

The other day we had EIGHT C-130s come over following the river corridor east at about 300 feet agl. Ive taken MANY pics of em actually, and the f*ckewrs dont wave here either!..

That was just Red Flag or Weapons School dodging the bad guys.

They are a bit too busy to wave.

Four sets of eyeballs out front and two on the sides. They don't have any fancy terrain following electronics.

Had a chopper (tourons or Search and Rescue?) watching us at Eagle Lake a couple years ago.

I waved.
They did nothing.

I gave them the "wtf" shrug, hands up high.
The did nothing.

I gave them the "shoo-scoot-get-on-outta-here" signal.
The did nothing.

I flipped them off, both hands, big and high so they could see.
They left.

My next attempt would have been to pick them out of the air with a rock or a #3 cameltwat.

The left-wing stance is just as predictable, much the same as the rest of poolitics.

"propaganda, fear, paranoia, money, but mostly willful ignorance that supports their ideology"
Maybe a little less money, eh?
Seems few people are comfortable with compromise.

Actually, I kind of applaud the effort to fix the healthcare system. Too bad it's a clusterfluk, and the insurance companies have taken advantage of it saying it's going to raise our rates. Hell, you could roll it back and get rid of it and they'd raise rates again. But that's just big business.

So yeah, I see the left cares about society. So does the right. Otherwise, how could they make money without a society in which to sell?

Dude, wtf... fear? You think "we" are actually more AFRAID of gunmen shooting kids at school than the right is? No, "we" don't want it to happen just as much as you don't. But "we" still send our kids to schools. "We" still take them to movies. "We" still go to malls. And while "we" maybe cautious, "we" still go out... sometimes even after DARK... without mommy... without Teddy... and without packing heat!

Do you think "we" are AFRAID of AR15's or magazines that hold more than 10 bullets?

pffft... whatever. Common sense says it is a good idea to regulate ANYTHING capable of slaughtering dozens of people in minutes if it were to fall into the wrong hands or were misused. The more dire the consequences, the more it JUST MAKES SENSE to regulate.

Lots of regulations regarding airplanes even before 911... because consequences were dire... unlikely, but dire.

Same with cars.

But mention any kind of regulation to people who love their guns and are AFRAID of losing them... AFRAID of a federal registry... AFRAID of the government taking over... and all rational discussion flies out the fuking window... because fear is an emotional response... and emotional responses often lead to irrational behavior.

Ah, now I can hear the trollin motor!
