Political Discussion / Derek Chauvin found guilty
« on: April 20, 2021, 11:08:49 AM »
Appeal soon.tm

Unfortunate,  I think the Jury got affected by the democrats rhetoric's.  Its almost certain that he will appeal with Maxine Waters threatening the jury.

One of the things Trump did good was immigration.  Looks like Biden is going to screw us again...I hope he retains some of Trumps policies or something

Political Discussion / GOP Future
« on: January 06, 2021, 10:33:04 PM »
Ding Dong the Trump is gone~  :geekdanc: :shaka: :D
I am happy to see him go, but sad to see who replaced him. 

On Jan 20 its official we have a borderline senile president. 
Congress has ratified the electors votes and Biden is the next president.

That being said the serious subject happens next....what will GOP do.  2022/4 might be last chance to set the course for this nation,  the last chance to defend 2a rights.  I see 3 options.

1) Reject Trump
2) Support Trump
3) Split

If they reject Trump they need to find their new identify after Trump tore apart the current GOP base and alienated the independents.  They need to find new leaders and representatives of the new/reformed GOP identity. This in my mind is the best chance to take back the country from the democrats. 

If they support Trump they will be supporting the failure of a president who lost the GOP, the house, senate and presidency.  They lost the presidency to a borderline senile old man....they have no real future and many GOP "old school" people will dump the party so will many independents.  This might lead to a democrat banana republic like Hawaii. 

If they split we might get more options with voting which is great but if the democrats don't split we will still end up with a democrat banana republic.

Off Topic / SolarWinds hack
« on: December 20, 2020, 09:59:11 AM »
The SolarWinds Orion platform hack is slowly turning out to be one of the most significant hacks in recent years.

Currently, the SolarWinds security breach has been linked to hacks at US security firm FireEye, the US Treasury Department, and the US Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA).

The hack is, however, expected to be much, much worse. Forbes reported today that SolarWinds is a major contractor for the US government, with regular customers including the likes of CISA, US Cyber Command, the Department of Defense, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Homeland Security, Veterans Affairs, and many others.

In addition, FireEye, which is investigating the incident as part of its own security breach, said the attackers also compromised targets all over the world, and not just in the US, including governments and private sector companies across several verticals.

Citing industry sources, Reuters reported today that despite a broad install base for the Orion platform, the attackers appear to have focused only on a small number of high-value targets, leaving most Orion customers unaffected.

So far everyone is blaming Russia, but wait there's more...Trump just came out that it wasn't Russia.  Almost the entire cyber security community believes it was Russia.  But not Trump.  Guess he is either playing 9000 dimensional chess, is a moron or is still Putin's bitch.

Political Discussion / It's finally over
« on: December 15, 2020, 07:09:34 AM »
This marks the end to this election fiasco.
https://apnews.com/article/mitch-mcconnell-congratulates-joe-biden-2ed09a34fbbc3342fe45c733ee0dd725

The house and senate has acknowledged president elect Biden.  The electors voted for Biden.  There is no path to victory for trump. Lets all move on and start focusing on the future. Don't be hypocrites and act like the stupid democrats did for the last 4 years.  Let the court cases play out.  Senate seats in Georgia need to go republican or we are fucked.

Firearms and Accessories / Ultrasonic gun cleaning
« on: December 08, 2020, 11:06:05 AM »
Anyone did this before?  Anyone know of any shop or service for those interested?   I want to clean my guns with it once in a while but to invest the huge upfront cost and storage is a bit problematic.

Political Discussion / Georgia Senate showdown
« on: November 21, 2020, 03:09:47 PM »
As we all know Georgia and its 2 senate seats are up for special election.  Democrats need to win both to take the senate.

This brings me to this article.

Political Discussion / Trump unveils drug price rules

https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/20/politics/trump-unveils-controversial-drug-price-rules/index.html

Not the best source but the content is good,  One of the few things I think trump did well, is trying to fight for drug pricing.  I applaud this action and hopefully lasts after he leaves office.  :shaka:

There is no good reasons USA should pay more than others for the same shit.

Political Discussion / Melania Divorce upcoming.
« on: November 09, 2020, 12:04:05 PM »
Wow she is nicer than I thought. 

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8925347/Melania-Trump-counting-minutes-divorce-Donald-leaves-White-House.html

This is probably based on the fact he admitted to cheating on her.  I would divorce my wife too if she cheated on me,  wouldn't wait till it was convenient for her though.

Political Discussion / Senate Results
« on: November 03, 2020, 07:58:07 PM »
Looks like republicans are going to keep the senate.  My greatest fear is gone.  Don't even care about president race right now.  If Biden wins the senate can keep him from doing anything for 4 years.

Political Discussion / Climate change
« on: October 26, 2020, 11:02:59 AM »
Japan the 3rd largest economy pledged to combat climate change and be carbon neutral by 2050. 
https://www.npr.org/2020/10/26/927846739/a-decarbonized-society-japan-pledges-to-be-carbon-neutral-by-2050

This means the worlds 3 out of the top 4 economy's minus the USA have pledge to be carbon neutral.

Hope the USA is next!

Four in ten millennials now say they are religiously unaffiliated, according to the Pew Research Center. In fact, millennials (those between the ages of 23 and 38) are now almost as likely to say they have no religion as they are to identify as Christian.

I wonder what this will do to the republican party in the long run.  I look forward to the changes in the political system in the future. .

General Discussion / FFL/ Custom orderer
« on: October 19, 2020, 11:23:53 AM »
Asking for both a friend and myself. Looking to buy a bunch of guns.  Would rather stick to one person.  I know it might be a pain in the ass as many different sites I or the person would be ordering from.  Things that are hard to find too, like a 308 and 223 stripped lowers.  Anyone know of a good ffl?  Looking for someone cheap too :D

Political Discussion / Abortion
« on: October 12, 2020, 01:37:47 PM »
Lets have the roundup thread because it keeps popping up in other threads.   Try keep most of the talk here.

Abortion is not protected by the Constitution outright in specific language, it can still fall under the penumbra of constitutional protections (Griswold v. Connecticut). In the same way the constitution did not specifically say speech over the internet is protected under the first amendment, or semi-automatic firearms are protected under the second amendment, there can be a logical inference that they fall within the constitutional shadow and are thus protected.

Currently Abortion is protected under the 14th amendment.

The Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides a fundamental "right to privacy" that protects a pregnant woman's liberty to choose whether or not to have an abortion.  This also applies to doctors.

Also, of interesting relevance to us here in the firearms community, abortion and gun control are basically the same argument from polar opposite sides:

Primary argument: "We need to ban (guns/abortions) for the sake of the children"
Courts rule: "no you can't ban (guns/abortions) outright, but states can make their own policies."
Individual states: "Well we don't like (guns/abortions) so we're gonna throw up obstacles like waiting periods, and mandatory classes, and proof of competency, and make it really hard to have (guns/abortions) in our state."

Believing the federal government or states should have the right to restrict one and not the other is quite hypocritical.

I believe both should be protected federally for everyone.  I think no matter if you are against abortion for religious or scientific views.  You should support the ability for all individuals in any state to make up their decision on what they believe if its prochoice or prolife on their own.   Same with free speech, gun rights etc.  It should be protected choice of freedom nationwide.

This applies to the press and everything.  The left super liberals news have as much right to run as the right conservative news.  You may hate on the other but you should protect their right to exist.  Same with guns and everything.  You can't pick and choose freedom.

Edited some posts together, used some words from Antisepsis

I voted choice 4,  Personal choice.  Much like gun rights

Political Discussion / Who is everyone voting for this year (president)
« on: October 07, 2020, 07:14:56 AM »
I am curious to everyone's voting this year.  This poll is mostly anonymous from what I gather.  Personally I am voting Biden this year.  Trump lost my vote, I was going to none vote but fuck it the last week pushed me over the edge.  I voted for Trump last year.  This is going to be my first democrat vote ever I think. 

Recently the topic of silent majority vs vocal minority came up, while I doubt its the case on this forum who knows.

Edit*

Voted by mail.  Ended up voting for libertarian.
