    California's Wildfires Thread

    @Destino Our counties in SoCal know when to evac. My experience is that the first 24 hours and fire break during night-time are the most dangerous times. That was the scary part about the Woolsey fire. It spread fast during the night. My family is still evac'd. First due to the Hill Fire, but now it looks like the Woolsey fire is coming towards us from a different direction. Now that it is at the coast, Santa Anas should keep it there.... I hope... Spent 2 nights with friends, but will be moving to a hotel. @Destino What is more crazy to me are the people who stay with their houses. We know people who did this during the fire last year -- spraying a garden hose on roof... and someone this year too. Its true that random embers flying through the air can travel, and are fairly benign .. but do you want to worry about getting out once fire is that close (hence MANDATORY evacuation).

    We are good. We live at CSUCI -- they were good at evacuating early due to large number of commuter students. I feel more comfortable because a refecent fire burned through -- that slowed the speed of this one. Whats crazy is how quickly these fires can burn and how fast they move. Also first 24 hours are a concern. Fire headed in my direction isn't threatening homes, but a second fire raged through the night and unfortunately homes were lost in Thousand Oaks. Firep jumped a fire line. I hope everyone got word to evac there. Also -- TO is same town as bar shooting...

    Friends are great when adversity strikes.... evacuated due to fire... feel confident that it will be fine and house will be fine but it was nice to have about a dozen people ask if we needed a house to stay at... First a bar shooting and now two wildfires threatening area cities... good news is that we had a recent fire in one of areas which should slow down the spread.
  4. The 2nd Amendment Paradox: a tiny amount of bad guys can get guns because so many good guys want guns. I am all for trading gun mag and other restrictions to the 2A folks for restricting guns out of public spaces. If you are waiting for Civil War II or American Revolution II -- go ahead and horde all the guns you want in your home, even military grade. Have at it. Go ahead and zone public spaces where you are allowed to carry like recognized hunting grounds, shooting ranges, etc. But if you carry at a street, school, mall, bar and arent a peace officer and gun is detected -- you get locked up.
  5. Saw this thread bumped... didn't want to open it... where was the shooting... Borderlines as in the place some if my younger colleagues, friends and coworkers visit? It was only a matter of time until one of these was close to me. Hope no one I knew was in there.... Not that anything will change... the new Season of South Park got mass shootings right... they are just a part of life.

    Election 2018 Thread

    Not so sure it's a great night for GOP. I would be concerned about Florida and Texas. I would be concerned about midwest and Maine as far as Senate map in 2020. I would be worried about Dems being able to gain their voice in national policy discussions again. I would be concerned with Trump indictments and investigations...

    Election 2018 Thread

    Overall very happy for country... some head scratchers with the results (Florida - Red State retirement state). South is racist as heck... don't believe it... but its right there in the results. Trump is a moron if he is happy with these results... is he gonna moderate now? Kiss your wall goodbye... kiss your secret tax returns goodbye... kiss all the silence over your scandal ridden administration goodbye. Nikki Haley is smart. You couldda been an unorthodox good president, but instead you doubled down on division... I hope in 20 years when we see the next shrewd populist Presidential candidate they understand how to bring the country together... and focus on the real issues... not this dumb racist, fake victim, self enriching garbage....

    Election 2018 Thread

    As a conservative GOP from Virginia who moved to California a decade and a half ago that shifted me politically to a moderate Dem -- the fact that this election is even close in the house and its not going to be a 240 or 250 to 190 seat wipeout is disheartening. Who are the people that support the Trump GOP in such numbers? The splits between Male and Female are also fascinating. People need to open their eyes and realize that racist, misogynist BS is disgusting and needs to be turned away at the ballot box.

    Taking out Dick Mountain was as questionable as pitching to Puig last night.... take the guy out after 1 hit... It was fun how Muncy dropped Dick Mountain into the post game interview yesterday....

    Muncy had a great at bat against Eovaldi last time... of course he ends it with a walk-off... That guy talking about the ump wasn't around when he called all of Woods borderline pitches balls in the top of the inning.... Not sure how expensive of a loss it was for the Red Sox...

    Kershaw had a better contact than most of the other Dodgers...

    Hardest ball Dodgers have hit is Muncy foul and Puig comebacker... I don't see them doing much...

    Sure, that's why they sent Puig back to 1st... again I haven't seen it and although I am in LA and rooting for the Dodgers, I really don't see it. Just because.... Red Sox pitcher has just been filthy and isnt trying to paint the corners. The 2nd strike on Machado went different than you would expect....

    I have no idea where the strike zone is... seen a lot of high and low balls I thought were strikes called balls... haven't notice the outside strikes until Maeda... no one was really nibbling the edges until him. Fox not gonna show a replay... garbage sports production. Wonder what Evoldis best pitch count has been.... he has some sick stuff...
