Political Discussion / Cost of Rail
« on: March 18, 2021, 09:10:33 PM »
Well, my prediction of rail costing $10B when the expert prediction was $7.4B, got blown out of the water today. New estimate is $12.4B and 10 more years to complete.  At this time I will make another prediction.  $17B will be wasted and it will not be completed in the next 12 years.  By completed I mean all the way to Ala Moana like the original plan called for and HART is still trying to accomplish.

Off Topic / Making a Sap Cap
« on: October 20, 2020, 12:09:50 PM »
On another thread I mentioned a cap I made with a 7oz lead weight sewn in.  Just thought I would post some pictures to show what it looks like.  They are going to be 3 or 4 posts with pictures so please post any comments after I am done so the pictures are all in sequence.

The first step is selecting the right cap.  The one below won't work because you cannot conceal the weight. Also the stiff backing in the front will not allow a good grip.

Preparedness and Survival / HURRICANE DOUGLAS IS COMING, R U READY?
« on: July 22, 2020, 04:55:12 PM »
I have two generators, a loud 4500 watt and the quiet Honda EU3000.  Got 15 gal of gas for it, five 20 lb propane tanks full, vehicles all full, at least 30 days of food and plenty of water.  Also got a good supply of building materials to make waterproof emergency shelter if needed.  Tomorrow I am going to buy extra food for the chickens and dogs.  Other than that, pretty much set. I made a couple of generator wall outlets so I can run power inside the house without having to leave a window or door jar for the cord.  My biggest concern is my new vegetable garden getting destroyed.

Just curious about how many seniors we have here.  Who is collecting SSA benefits and from what age? And if you qualify but waiting to collect higher benefits, put down CBW for Can But Waiting.  I started collecting from age 64.

Off Topic / Stimulus Check
« on: March 29, 2020, 07:26:04 AM »
If you are getting a stimulus check,  what do you plan to do with it?  My wife and I, being retired and now making no where near $150,000, should get the full amount of $2400.  After putting $1500 into savings,  I plan to get a high quality 80% aluminum billet and jig and stockpile more Mountain House food.  What are you planning to do?

« on: February 11, 2020, 08:44:35 PM »
It is a Constitutional Carry State and as the article points out, surprise surprise, blood has NOT been running on the streets.

Off Topic / Congestion Traffic Fees
« on: January 16, 2020, 09:50:21 AM »
So our brilliant fearless Hawaii leaders have come up with another money grabbing scheme to affect those least able to afford it.  Charging you for driving during peak times on the main highways.  HNN this morning said it takes a little over $83,000 for a family of 4 to meet basic needs on Oahu.  I can see further exodus of locals out of Hawaii.

General Discussion / Can a state outlaw ALL forms of self defense?
« on: December 06, 2019, 06:05:06 AM »
Don't think this law will pass in Virginia, but maybe Hawaii can be the first.

Political Discussion / Maunakea TMT Protests
« on: July 15, 2019, 08:57:20 PM »
I have been watching the news about all these Hawaiian activists who are protesting the building of the TMT.  They say Mauna Kea is sacred to their culture and they cannot allow the mountain to be further desecrated.  Once the TMT is completed, five of the other telescopes will be taken out.  To me, that would make the mountain better.  There are also a lot of people who want it built because it means jobs.  These protesters say they will be up there everyday no matter how long it takes.  A lot of them look like they are too young to be retired and I don't think they are independently wealthy.  So do they have jobs? Or are they all like one “prominent “Hawaiian activist who chained himself to the cattle guard and has spend most of his life living off the state and welfare?

As before, this is not a test.  Active shooter in Intl Mkt Pl.  Shots fired.

Like the ballistic missle alert, was false alarm.  Reported on HNN 5PM News.

Legal and Activism / Kealoha Trial Verdict
« on: June 21, 2019, 08:44:39 PM »
Closing arguements are next Tuesday if I heard correctly.  I don't know how long the jury will take to reach a verdict, but from what I see on the news and from what various news legal analysts are saying, if I was in their shoes I would be plenty worried.

Off Topic / Water catchment tank stolen
« on: March 26, 2019, 07:57:00 AM »
Some brazen criminals stole the 2000 gal plastic water tank from Glenwood Mini Park, which is right on the main highway.  They would have had to drain the water and then load it on to a large truck or trailer.   A few years ago someone stole my friend's 10k catchment tank while they were on vacation.

General Discussion / MOSSBERG MC1
« on: March 17, 2019, 08:39:29 AM »
Anyone here actually seen one in person?  It had a positive write up in CC magazine.  Retails for only $399 and uses clear Glock 43 magazines.  I would like to handle one before I buy my next CC pistol.  I was only considering the Sig P365 or Glock 43, but will add the Mossberg to the list.

If the Dems win control of both chambers and the WH in 2020, we will be well on our way.

Off Topic / BUG DETECTOR
« on: January 21, 2019, 07:49:38 AM »
Was watching the news about how some B&Bs, hotel rooms etc have hidden cameras or listening devices.  Since I travel quite often and plan to do more in the next few years, I am seriously thinking of getting a bug detector to check out the places I stay at.  Anybody have experience with or recommendations for these devices?
