Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Labor Day Thoughts- Any Apply?
« on: September 07, 2020, 07:52:49 AM »
 Wouldn't it be great if we could put ourselves in the dryer for ten minutes; come out wrinkle-free and three sizes smaller!
Last year I joined a support group for procrastinators.  We haven't met yet!
  I don't trip over things, I do random gravity checks!
  I don't need anger management.  I need people to stop pissing me off!
  Old age is coming at a really bad time!
  When I was a child I thought Nap Time was a punishment ... now, as a grown up, it just feels like a small vacation!
  The biggest lie I tell myself is ... "I don't need to write that down, I'll remember it."
  Lord grant me the strength to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can & the friends to post my bail when I finally snap!
  I don't have gray hair.  I have "wisdom highlights". (What about those that have no hair)
  My people skills are just fine.  It's my tolerance to idiots that needs work.
  Teach your daughter how to shoot, because a restraining order is just a piece of paper.
If god wanted me to touch my toes, he would've put them on my knees.
  The kids text me "plz" which is shorter than please.  I text back "no" which is shorter than "yes".
I'm going to retire and live off of my savings.  Not sure what I'll do that second week.
  When did it change from "We the people" to "screw the people"?
  I've lost my mind and I'm pretty sure my kids took it!
  Even duct tape can't fix stupid ... but it can muffle the sound!
  Why do I have to press one for English when you're just gonna transfer me to someone I can't understand anyway?
  Lord, Give me patience and give it to me NOW.
  Of course I talk to myself, sometimes I need expert advice.
  Oops! Did I roll my eyes out loud?
  At my age "Getting lucky" means walking into a room and remembering what I came in there for.
  Chocolate comes from cocoa which is a tree ...
that makes it a plant which means ...
chocolate is Salad !!!
                                                          Happy Labor Day! ;D

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / You get what you pay for
« on: August 30, 2020, 09:37:36 AM »
   Adam was walking around the garden of Eden feeling very lonely and he heard a loud voice ask him, "What is wrong with you?"
   Adam said he didn't have anyone to talk to. Then the loud voice said he was going to give him a companion and it would be a woman.
   This person will cook for you and wash your clothes, and she will always agree with every decision you make. She will bear your children and never ask you to get up in the middle of the night to take care of them. She will not nag you, and will always be the first to admit she was wrong when you've had a disagreement. She will never have a headache, and will freely give you love and compassion whenever needed.
   Adam asked, "What would a woman like this cost me?"
   The answer was, "An arm and a leg."
   Adam then asked, "What can I get for just a rib?"

   The rest is history. 

Austin has been at the center of left-wing politics for many years and this may be the straw that breaks the camels back. Hopefully things won't erupt into the type of rioting thats happened in Portland Ore. and Minneapolis Minn.


     Three couples, an elderly couple, a middle-aged couple, and a young newlywed couple wanted to join the church. The pastor said, We have special requirements for new parishioners. You must abstain from having sex for two weeks. The couples agreed, and said they would come back in two weeks.

  Two weeks later the three couples return to the church and talk to the pastor. He then asks the elderly couple, "Have you completed the two weeks without sex?" "Yes we have, it was easy," replies the elderly couple.
    “Well then, Congratulations! Welcome to the church!”

   The pastor went to the middle aged couple and asked, “Well were you able to abstain from sex for the two weeks?” The man replied, “The first week was not too bad. The second week I had to sleep on the couch for a couple of nights but, Yes we made it.
   “Well then, Congratulations! Welcome to the church!”

Finally the pastor goes over to the young newlywed couple and ask’s, “Well, were you two able to abstain from sex for two weeks?”

     “No pastor we were not able to go without sex for the two weeks,” the young man replied sadly. “What happened, inquired the pastor?” 
    “Well, the second week, my wife was reaching for a can of corn on the top shelf and dropped it. When she bent over to pick it up, what a sight, I was completely overcome. I just couldn’t take it any longer.
       “You understand, of course this means you will not be welcome in our church, say’s the pastor.”
         We know said the young man. “We’re not welcome at Albertson’s grocery store anymore either.”

 I got an email from breitbart.com (Breitbart is legitimate) with a pretty cool Promotional/Advertisement from a beer company which I believe is legitimate, which would support  your choice for President of the United States. You can read the information off of the Breitbart link, or goggle presidentbeers.com. Just one hitch, you must be a resident of California, Nevada, Arizona, Washington, or Oregon in order to receive beer.


   The rioters/vigilantes in Portland are like animals, have lost touch with reality and have no place in society. These animals have no sense of decency and are enpowered with the lack of law enforcement on the streets. The videos are the violence against citizens caught up in the crossfire that the media will never televise. It’s also the kind of violence the democrats are deliberately ignoring in an effort to try to make the administration look bad. Democrats just don’t care that innocent people are being hurt, again so long as they feel it helps them win the election. Here’s an example, with black lunatic congresswoman Ayanna Pressley calling for more unrest in the streets:
With a number of Democrat-run cities already ravaged by “unrest in the streets,” Squad Member Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) got on national television and called for more — and MSNBC anchor Tiffany Cross agreed with her.
“There needs to be unrest in the streets for as long as there’s unrest in our lives, and unfortunately, there’s plenty to go around,” Pressley told MSNBC over the weekend. To which the MSNBC anchor responded with, “I have no retort to that. That is certainly accurate.”

This link has videos (the first few are a bit repetitive) but the fifth one shows just how savage these people are capable of being.
    Husky Musky and the democratic leadership look the other way and refuse to acknowledge criminal actions as long as it's not happening to them.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Saturday Humor--Skippy
« on: August 08, 2020, 05:47:47 AM »
    A woman goes to her boyfriend's parents' house for dinner. This is to be her first time meeting the family and she is very nervous. They all sit down and begin eating a fine meal.
The woman is beginning to feel a little discomfort, thanks to her nervousness and the broccoli casserole. The gas pains are almost making her eyes water.
Left with no other choice, she decides to relieve herself a bit ...and lets out a dainty fart. It wasn't loud, but everyone at the table heard the pouf. Before she even had a chance to be embarrassed, her boyfriend's father looked over at the dog that had been snoozing at the woman's feet and said in a rather stern voice, "Skippy!".
The woman thought, "This is great!" and a big smile came across her face. A couple of minutes later, she was beginning to feel the pain again. This time, she didn't even hesitate. She let a much louder and longer fart rip.
The father again looked and the dog and yelled, "Dammit Skippy!"
Once again the woman smiled and thought "Yes!". A few minutes later the woman had to let another one rip. This time she didn't even think about it. She ripped a fart that rivaled a train whistle blowing! Once again, the father looked at the dog with disgust and yelled, "Dammit Skippy, get away from her before she shits all over you!"

Equipment / New Set Trigger for AR-15 with well designed features
« on: August 03, 2020, 07:47:01 AM »
Whether you like heavy, medium, or light trigger pulls is an individual thing, not just for hunters, but competitive, and plinking fun. This new trigger from JARD seems to have a lot of benefits, but may not appeal to everyone. It's a little pricy, but the functionality is simple, and is simple to install. The first link is the introduction information on the JARD AR-15 trigger and the second link has a short how to video.


Hard to believe she got elected, but I guess the majority of the population must have muslin ties, or a lot of people just didn't vote. Every anti-American political group in the country must feel they have their foot in the door with everyone afraid to make a move against the violence and destruction being caused by the BLM movement. The longer those in authority wait, the harder it will be to stop these hoodlums from wrecking our country.


Use to be that going to live sporting events or even watching them on television was a good way to kind of forget about what was going on in the outside world. Sundays especially, as sporting events were covered all over the world and you could take your pick as to what you wanted to watch without being bothered. The only things that mattered were the Tee Box, Home Plate, the Goalies net, the KO, the Ace, the horse race or Nascar finish line, the goal posts, or the swoosh through the net and the release of unfettered emotions as you watched. Well, we know that much of that is changed (forever) and the latest target is the NBA. Right now the problem is that we can't get both sides to come together and make the meaningful changes necessary to please both sides. (but then, how often does that happen) First the NLF and now the NBA, (in my opinion) will do nothing more than fan the fire, as we don't have an equitable solution for all, and the protesting rioters will be emboldened. The latest on the NBA's involvement in social justice politics.


Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Speeding Ticket Nag
« on: July 05, 2020, 06:45:57 AM »
A man and his wife were going out of town to visit relatives. After driving about 75 miles and going through a few small towns, out of nowhere a Cop pulls him over for speeding. The Cop says, "do you know why I pulled you over?'' The guy's wife says ''What'd he say?'' "HE SAID, DID I KNOW WHY HE PULLED ME OVER." Then the Cop says "you were going 45 in a school zone." "What'd he say?" "HE SAYS I WAS SPEEDING." Then the Cop says, "license and registration." Again the wife, "What'd he say?" "HE NEEDS MY LICENSE AND REGISTRATION." The Cop's looking the license over and says, "you live in Rockford aye?" "Yup." The Cop say's, "Back in the day I dated a gal from Rockford. She had the stinkiest vagina ." The wife say's, "What'd he say?" "HE SAYS HE THINKS HE KNOWS YA!."

Remington under new leadership...Finally
« on: March 10, 2020, 10:03:16 PM »
There was an article in Rifleshooter magazine detailing how they have a new CEO.  It sounds like he will be taking the company in a much better direction; no longer focusing on the lower end price point firearms.  Additionally, it sounds like they will no longer be pushing Bushmaster and DPMS.  The new CEO stated that Remington is not an MSR company.  Rather interesting. I'm excited to see how the company changes over the next few years...

I think everyone wants Remington to succeed, mainly because of the history behind the name, and the great firearms that were developed by the old masters. Found an article on the new Remington CEO, his background, his motivation, and the positive steps he plans for Big Greens return to their Glory Days. The past few CEO's have all failed in their revamping attempts, hopefully for all Remington Aficionado's, CEO Ken D' Arcy is the right man for the job.

Seems the only way for Remington to have a new beginning is for someone to take over the company without any debt at all.


                                                              Criminal Lawyers Award Contest

A Charlotte, NC, lawyer purchased a box of very rare and expensive cigars, then insured them against fire among other things. Within a month having smoked his entire stockpile of these great cigars and without yet having made even his first premium payment on the policy, the lawyer filed a claim against the insurance company. In his claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost "in a series of small fires." The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason: that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion.

The lawyer sued...and won!

In delivering the ruling the judge agreed with the insurance company that the claim was frivolous. The Judge stated nevertheless, that the lawyer held a policy from the company in which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure them against fire, without defining what is considered to be unacceptable fire, and was obligated to pay the claim.

Rather than endure lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company accepted the ruling and paid $15,000 to the lawyer for his loss of the rare cigars lost in the fires.
After the lawyer cashed the check, the insurance company had him arrested on 24 counts of ARSON!!! With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case being used against him, the lawyer was convicted of intentionally burning his insured property and was sentenced to 24 months in jail and a $24,000 fine.

 Just the same, the lawyer won the "Criminal Lawyers Award Contest."  Criminal minds never stop working :).
