Re: Finally got a .22

I like a good .22. They make for a very utilitarian rifle. They are great for training the kids, dispatching pests, and light hunting. If you had to, you could take down a deer with one. And, if you had to, you could defend the homefront with one. A .22 rifle is on my personal list of "must hav...

Re: Alzheimer’s drugs delivered to members of Congress

Oh, this sort of thing is more than just worrying. This probably falls under the category of "terrifying". It bothers me that John McCain still holds office. He should have stepped down, as soon as he was diagnosed with that brain tumor. And, since he hasn't, he should have been forced out...

Re: On The "Driverless Car"

Oh, wow. I just looked up "drive by wire". I don't like that, at all! I much prefer that there be a solid, mechanical, direct link between my steering wheel and my steer wheels. I have a similar thing in my truck, as far as shifting goes. It's a manual 12 speed transmission, that's basical...

Re: On The "Driverless Car"

@Alan- WaPo generally lets me get a couple of "free" articles a month. I know that there are ways to jump that wall, but I get the basic info that they offer on a topic elsewhere, with far less effort. Odd that Business Insider took issue with your ad blocker; they didn't seem to mind mine...

Re: Introducing boys to firearms (outdoor ranges, kid courses)

I learned how to shoot with a Remington Model 6, single shot .22 boys rifle. I was about 4 years old, at the time. The eldest of my little sisters learned on the same rifle, at about the same age. My parents have recently moved into a camper, and divided the heirlooms amongst the children. That litt...

Re: On The "Driverless Car"

Kelu raises another interesting point; who bears responsibility, in accidents? Not just bad ones, but little fender benders, and such? That truck driver, in Vegas, that hit the driverless shuttle; my guess is, had that shuttle had a human driver, that human driver might have caught what the truck dr...

Re: Open carry questions (new to Virginia)

This subject seems pretty well hashed out, and there's little for me to add, except to list some of the areas in which I have openly carried. I used to live in Williamsburg; I carried openly there, without issue. Williamsburg is a fairly lefty place; it's the home of William and Mary, after all. The...

Re: On The "Driverless Car"

If I owned my truck, yes. I could disable a lot of this junk, or uninstall some of it, entirely. I could enable the "power" function, which would increase my horsepower (while decreasing fuel economy) in order to better maintain my speed, as I climb a mountain. (Maintaining highway speed i...

Re: On The "Driverless Car"

You know, I drive all the time. That's my job. When I come home from a 6 week run, the very last place that I want to be, is in a driver seat. I don't want to drive so much as a golf cart, or a lawn mower. As such, the convenience of a driverless automobile, or an autonomous automobile, is very temp...

On The "Driverless Car"

The following rant, found at American Greatness, says much against the concept of the driverless car. Of course, I am in agreement. I find the notion to be despicable. https://amgreatness.com/2017/11/24/say-no-to-the-driverless-car-for-civilizations-sake/ I particularly liked this quote: "It’s ...

Re: How to shut up a Progressive Commie

I've met LOTS of Christian Jews. Come to think of it, Jesus Christ HIMSELF is Jewish. His Disciples, the first Christians, were Jewish. The Apostle Paul was Jewish. Rev, your PC aquaintence is thoroughly ignorant of Biblical history (and, since this person has been branded a Progressive Commie, I'm ...

Re: Bergdahl wants to receive almost $300,000 back pay.

Bergdahl should have every bit of his assets seized and liquidated, and the proceeds go to those who were injured while trying to find him. Then, Bergdahl should be hanged by the neck, until dead. His lawyer should probably hang with him. [ Post made via Mobile Device ] http://vagunforum.net/images/...

The poll won't show on my phone... Something that was pointed out on Instapundit, the other day, in regard to Texas: The media keeps referring to the shooters gun as some scary assault weapon. The good guy who shot back, according to the media, did so with his "rifle". Both were an AR-15. ...

Re: McAuliffe says he'll seek new gun restrictions in Virginia

Too Conservative, Marc? I doubt it. That may have been true, pre-Obama, but I think folks will turn out for real Conservatives, now. I'm not suggesting a run for Governor, right now, either. It's a tad bit late for that. But, what's coming up in '18 or '19? Running a campaign to represent your distr...

Re: McAuliffe says he'll seek new gun restrictions in Virginia

Marc and Rev; I have met both of you in person, and you are both articulate. Why don't you guys run for office? I believe that you could pull it off. I'd run, myself, but my speaking power erodes, when the group gets larger than 2 or 3 people. I'm much better with the written word. [ Post made via M...

https://www.washingtonpost.com/2017-election-results/virginia/?utm_term=.d364097846d2 Looking at the map in WaPo, it looks like Gillespie should be the Governor Elect. Yet, Northram apparently is. States really should have an Electoral College set up, to keep this sort of thing from happening. Not t...
