    Random Thought Thread

    So my XO asked today if I would rather be invaded by aliens or zombie apocalypse (obviously a busy day at work). I chose zombies because at least you know what you're getting in to. Aliens could be like Independence Day or E.T. Thoughts?
  2. One thing noteworthy is it talks about impacting the "average family" of which I am obviously not. I pay essentially no health care costs whatsoever. This is not average. Now looking over your link, the only thing that would affect me is the 4% household income tax. I don't pay healthcare costs so it would be no saving for me. It would cost me (very roughly) $3,200 a year. I will say I have no problem paying more taxes in general if I thought the government would spend my money wisely. But I have never seen a single thing that makes me believe this would be the case.

    I think you may be in the wrong thread.
  4. I get that. I was just agreeing with your point. Military members will end up paying more. I imagine most vets will also but haven't looked up the numbers for that. But my current cost is $0 so I'm guaranteed to pay more.

    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    I'd disagree. A lot of bombing and such can clear out a way for you to take an area. Holding an area limits how much bombing you can do. Plus all the support services that are needed for the people holding an area PLUS the people taking another area. A lot goes into it but I'd say holding an area takes more people than taking it.

    Missing a Redskins' Game to Go to Paradise

    I took a nap last week during the game. Supposed to be raining so I'll probably do the same. There is a gun show also I might go to.

    The Brexit Thread

    Johnson is the crazy, British-Trump guy right? I thought he just got shut down by his own party or something?
  8. Pelosi? They were saying she was going to make a big announcement?
  9. I had to explain this to the wife. It's really basic math. He will eliminate capital gains tax which takes them to zero. He will then double the capital gains tax. 0x2=0 And he will have kept his word. Boom.

    Some More Cops Who Need to Be Fired

    Be careful. A fair number of them are trump supporters.

    Redskins Fan Revolt Thread

    As much as I hate what Dan has done to the team and finally made me a lot less interested, the NFL itself isn't helping either. I used to gobble up football info but between this team and the NFL, I find myself asking "LB went to the Jets?"
  12. Don't really see how it is not confiscation. Definition does not seem to mention about being compensated for it; it is a mandatory program where you have to turn over a certain type of firearm.

    The Impeachment Thread

    Not really helping dispute about how dumb americans are. Sad thing is I bet a lot of those dirty brown people at the border know the process better than your average joe.

    Some More Cops Who Need to Be Fired

    Thanks. I wasn't aware of that. I was picturing something more like a small Abrahms though. These look more like something just used for rough terrain. Has any place actually amounted machine guns or cannons on them? FTR, I have been all about de-militarizing the police. I think a major part is getting the majority of them out of the tactical clothing and back onto a more professional looking uniform with a tie and such. I believe the way one is dressed sets the tone for the way one acts.

    Wow. Is Neil Cavuto really out? Can't see Fox letting him stay around after that. Or is this a sign that the rats are finally starting to leave the ship?

    Can you source this? I just want to understand if you mean APCs or literally using tanks.

    So by tanks we mean..........not tanks?

    Some More Cops Who Need to Be Fired

    They launching tear gas/ smoke/ flash bangs or like no **** anti-personnel explosive grenades? And I'm still curious about these tanks.

    Some More Cops Who Need to Be Fired

    What police have bazookas? Or tanks? I'm against this shooting as much as anyone, and believe the police have become WAY too militarized, but I don't know any with tanks and bazookas. I could totally be wrong but I just don't know any.

    Tunisian Revolution and the Middle East

    I'd like to see Britian or France or someone take the lead occasionally. But if we want to be the world police or looking out for resources we need or whatever, we need to remember how much money and resources and blood it costs. All in or all out. Halfway just costs more in the end.

    Let's Talk about Pets

    Took Logan to the beach yesterday. I'll sit down and do some editing on these later but thought they were too good not to share. Not bad for a 13-year old lab.

    Tunisian Revolution and the Middle East

    I've said this before regarding other topics but fits here also. Before we decide what we should have done/be doing, we need to decide if we want to be the world's police.
