Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

I'm sorry. I just don't believe there is a proliferation of Nazi groups in the U S. I find the whole idea to be some kind of scare propaganda to draw attention away from groups who are the real threat to our country. I mean really... How many people have you met in your life sympathetic to Nazis ? ...

This isn't scary, it's terrifying. In no small part because it's real. So much for taking me, PaleFace, & my income to Mexico. Or the PI.
Have you considered Chile?
Not sure if your post is a joke given the news, but in case it isn't: there's major rioting in Santiago currently.

Yeah, I really think the clerk's behavior was just so weird that the driver's brain said "Nope. I am not dealing with that. That is not part of the script." and took off.

Re: Have you had to draw your concealed carry, and why?

Yes, twice. 1) Middle of the night I went out to check to see if the barn was locked. A wolf and I tried to round the same corner from different directions. He lunged at me, I shot at him. In retrospect, I've always wondered why he made an issue of it rather than running off. I wonder if he thought ...

Re: Active Shooter on Vegas Strip

I'd agree except there is a problem with the theory. Prior to the introduction of these scripts in to our society mass public shooting that were not politically related were a bit of a rarity. Still, even then the shooter was most often seriously mentally ill, such as with the Texas Bell Tower shoo...

Re: Buying diesel in the summer and storing until winter?

So what would be classified as the right kind of plastic drums for kerosene or diesel? Many people don't use the right stuff even for things like rain water barrels to water their flowerbeds, let alone for a more specific and potentially hazardous use. How long do such barrels last? Do you buy them...

Re: Buying diesel in the summer and storing until winter?

You want to put diesel into a plastic drum? I wouldn't do that. I'd find a metal barrel of whatever size you need, particularly if the drum is going to be exposed to heat fluctuations. This is especially true for longer term storage. To be fair, I wouldn't do it with kerosene either. It works fine,...

Buying diesel in the summer and storing until winter?

We have a little tractor that's the only diesel engine in our fleet. We've been buying it fuel 5 gallons at a time and, though it doesn't use fuel very fast at all, that's been enough to keep us from running into gelling trouble in the winter. However, it's kind of a pain in the ass to go find diese...

That is a very odd statement. Xeno is just a prefix derived from Greek that means other or stranger. It has no political, ethical, or moral content or significance.

This has been discussed here before with different motivating factors. Moving 300-700 miles north will only put you in direct confrontation with existing people who live there.
