    Uncooperative Californicators

    How to get uncooperative California grabbers to issue concealed carry permits? Give 'em iPads! Gee, maybe if sheriffs did not have discretion to sell they would not sell it?

    What's in your arsenal??

    The Myakka river wandered into my brother's house in curricane Eta and among the things that got wet was some ammo. He's too overloaded to care about it right now so I got thousands of rounds of .22 and some shotgun shells. There was a wooden crate of 2,000 rounds of 5.56. We shot off a box last night to make sure it still worked and I sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. Now I have a pile of rejects, mostly 12 gauge. I'm not sure how you're supposed to dispose of those and the county's trash collection website doesn't say.

    Frank Butler DTS

    Maybe the questions were clueless, but I’m betting they gave him a very very good read of who his current and future clientele were. I worked for decades with guys like that- they always dominated their respective markets, because the attitude that ‘everything is important in some way’ was the business culture- Gerry Douglas taking notes was part of that. Shoving stuff down people’s throats works for a while, but not long. In fairness, probably about half were clueless, but my point was that he'd humor those as well. You're right about a good read on customers, and probably more importantly, what their wives liked. If the world were filled with unsupervised husbands, boat salesmen would be very rich indeed. If SWMBO likes it, you just sold a boat.

    Authorizing Unitary Military Forever!

    How to Stop America's 'Endless Wars' Maybe one day we'll have a political establishment that is receptive to those ideas.

    Frank Butler DTS

    I worked at a Catalina dealership for a while and there were a LOT of customers with stories of their phone call with Frank. He apparently spent a great deal of his time answering (probably clueless) questions from his customers. I took the dealership's Catalina 28 from here to Miami for a boat show. By the time I arrived, I had some strong ideas about a few things that were wrong with the boat. Gerry Douglas appeared aboard and I told him what was wrong. He got out his notebook, listened attentively, and took notes. Not to diminish Frank Butler's contribution but I'd have to nominate Clark Mills. There are about 16 optimist prams in my yard at the moment and that was the first boat I ever sailed.

    Dividing Line between Trumpalos and Republicans

    Yeah, that's why I said he voted to impeach, not convict. His status as a Rep, not a Sen, didn't stop you from asking how he voted, did it? Trump will be gone soon and the issues I care about will remain. As will Congresscritters who are more and less aligned with Trump on those issues.
  10. As Trump's Election Theft Theories Get Evidence, Some Republicans Are Jumping Aboard Sorry as usual about the Koch-$pon$ored Trump cheerleading.

    Drug Prohibition: Still Stupid

    The question to ponder when imposing first amendment restrictions is: why is this necessary? I posted about this almost a year ago in this thread. That's good. How absurdly broad was the censorship? Wow. "Offensive wording or graphics of any type." I wonder if the fishing store could display a filet knife or just a picture of one? Judge Parker was right. Before declaring a picture of a tractor to be naughty, we have to ask why this is necessary? My answer: it's not necessary or even helpful, it's just drug warriors fighting their losing battle.

    Kelo v. City of New London,

    NY country club used to shoot 'The Wolf of Wall Street' and 'Red Oaks' could be boughtback by eminent domain Makes me wonder what kind of "public use" this is and why the town would want to buyback the property at all.

    Horrible decision by the Supreme Court

    Money can't buy you votes And it's a good thing, or we'd be looking forward to the inauguration of President Bloomberg and VP Steyer.

    A friend remarked that he would be a lot more thankful for a standing rib roast than a turkey.
