Oh jeez… not another dude so scared of walking around America, that he wheres a loaded man purse to Wallymart for protection.

If you're so afraid of being a victim to gun violence, why not move to a country where there are mostly Gazelles grazing in the wind of peaceful bliss, like Japan or Britian.

That way you don't need to walk around America, loaded up for the next encounter, that will more likely result in you shooting yourself, a loved one , some innocent bystander, or maybe your friend at the shooting range.

Unless you're a gang member and forgot to tell us… you don't need a gun for protection. America's not that scary, trust me, I've lived here for 46 gunless years, and I'm just fine.

Who ever thought a bunch of kids getting shot would end up being the 'right to bear arms' message of the century? Truly a bit sick on both sides. Another false dichotomy for us to 'debate'. Leopards and Gazelles, ha ha ha funny shit, and just as useless.

I have much more respect for gun owners who say "man, I just like guns, period. I like to shoot shit, and that's it!"

That said, if you want a gun (and you do still have that right), there should be an insurance policy that goes with it. After all, we are capitalists here… Let's make some money hey? The policy will go to pay for the deaths and injuries, that are a byproduct of ones WANT to bear arms… Since we have the greatest armed forces protecting the U.S. and the world, there is no longer the 'need' for a well armed militia at home… just the WANT. There is an insurance policy on my car, my house, my plumbing company, etc. Let's just be honest, an fair. "You wanna play, you gotta pay!!!"

We tax and insure everything that is bad for us, or kills people in an unexpected or accidental way, why not guns?

Then we can tell the liberals and progressives to "f-off, I paid my policy this month, you ain't banning shit!!!" They will of course go along with it, because the one thing they like more than 'equal rights' for everyone, is more money to spend on stupid shit!

sorry if I offend anyone... it's nothing personal, just my opinion.

The great thing about our country is, if you want to walk around without a gun you can. If I want to have one in my pocket all the time I can for now. If I want to protect my family and myself I can for now.
I don't carry a firearm because I am afraid, I don't carry because I am paranoid. I don't purchase vehicle insurance after the accident or house insurance after the fire. Most folks that legally carry a firearm hope and pray to never need to use it. Mine has never came out of my pocket yet for anything other than cleaning, target practice or changing clothes.

I also think this thread is flirting on a full blown political discussion so I will stop there

Amazing things happen when some of the most prolific posters on a forum decide that it no longer meets their needs and a suitable alternative is found... :lol:

Thanks Old School for providing that place... :salute

Posted: Wed Apr 03, 2013 6:57 pm 

I want to do a CB in my truck, I was thinking about a cobra maybe and firestiks with mirror mounts.
Cobra is a decent unit...

At my part time night job we put together some trucks for spraying weeds along the highway and part of the bid spec was they had to have CB Radios installed to communicate with the state highway dept. guy leading them where he wanted spraying done and the crash trucks following them...

I installed Cobra 29 LTD's in the trucks and they work well...
I couldn't install as big of an antenna as I would have liked as part of their spraying is done on the parkway so a long antenna wouldn't have done well whacking the low bridges,,, :shock:

They drive on the wrong side too and play chicken with you when you go down there and drive on the right side...
They are freakin crazy down there in OZ... :lol:

Try a traffic rotary down there...
Make it through alive and you know how to drive in OZ.... :shit

The thing is, a peaked and tuned radio is good as it makes it so you can talk longer when meeting someone you know, but beyond that you can have a huge linear and be able to talk to Oz but if the guy on the other end can't talk back (which is usually the case unless you are a ham operator on a base unit) you haven't gained anything except an ego trip.

Oh, and a single 5' Francis with a 17' coax is my antenna of choice. You can put a dummy on the other mirror to match but don't hook it up.

Posted: Thu Apr 04, 2013 5:49 pm 

Generally a 45000 grain 10 by 54 unit is plenty for a normal size house. that's generally what we install.
We generally don't go any smaller unless its a small house with not many people living there. Generally it's best to size a water softener according to how many bathrooms and how many people can/might live there.
GENERALLY thats a good rule of thumb ;) haha

 Post subject: Fireman
Posted: Fri Apr 05, 2013 5:07 pm 

One dark night outside a small town in Minnesota , a fire
started inside the local chemical plant and in a blink of
an eye it exploded into massive flames. The alarm went
out to all the fire departments for miles around.

When the volunteer fire fighters appeared on the scene,
the chemical company president rushed to the fire chief
and said, "All our secret formulas are in the vault in
the center of the plant. They must be saved. I will give
$50,000 to the fire department that brings them out

But the roaring flames held the firefighters off.

Soon more fire departments had to be called in as the
situation became desperate. As the firemen arrived, the president
shouted out that the offer was now $100,000 to the fire
department who could bring out the company's secret

From the distance, a lone siren was heard as another fire
truck came into sight. It was the nearby Norwegian rural
township volunteer fire company composed mainly of
Norwegians over the age of 65. To everyone's amazement,
that little run-down fire engine roared right past all the
newer sleek engines that were parked outside the plant.

Without even slowing down it drove straight into the
middle of the inferno. Outside, the other firemen watched as the
Norwegian old timers jumped off right in the middle of the
fire fought it back on all sides. It was a performance
and effort never seen before.

Within a short time, the Norske old timers had
extinguished the fire and had saved the secret formulas. The
grateful chemical company president announced that for such a
superhuman feat he was upping the reward to $200,000, and walked
over to personally thank each of the brave fire fighters.

The local TV news reporter rushed in to capture the event
on film, asking their chief, "What are you going to do with all
that money?"

"Vell," said Ole Larsen, the 70-year-old fire chief, "Da
first thing ve gonna do is fix da brakes on dat focking

I think I know what will eventually destroy the Earth. Baby wipes, they must breed or just appear from another dimension, because every place I find them nobody know how they got there.

Soon the world will be filled with wipes that appeared from the ether, they will not long sulk in the main lines and septic tanks, they are coming.

"This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, but with a wipe"

Dear Abby,

My husband has a long record of money problems. He runs up huge credit card bills and at the end of the month, if I try to pay them off, he shouts at me, saying I am stealing his money. He says pay the minimum and let our kids worry about the rest, but already we can hardly keep up with the interest. Also he has been so arrogant and abusive toward our neighbors that most of them no longer speak to us. The few that do are an odd bunch, to whom he has been giving a lot of expensive gifts, running up our bills even more. Also, he has gotten religious. One week he hangs out with Catholics and the next with people who say the Pope is the Anti-Christ, and the next he's with Muslims.. Finally, the last straw. He's demanding that before anyone can be in the same room with him, they must sign a loyalty oath. It's just so horribly creepy! Can you help?


Dear Lost, Stop whining, Michelle. You're getting to live in the White House for free, travel the world, and have others pay for everything for you.
You can divorce him any time you want. The rest of us are stuck with him for another 3 years!

A Chief Master Sergent and an General were sitting in the barbershop.
They were both just getting finished with their shaves,
when the barbers reached for some after-shave to slap on their faces.

The General shouted,
"Hey, don't put that stuff on me! My wife will think I've been in a whorehouse!"

The Chief turned to his barber and said,
"Go ahead and put it on. My wife doesn't know what the inside of a whorehouse smells like."

Secondly, everyone knows you are plumber from the zone. It's just sad you didn't have the balls to represent that over here. Next time sack up instead of lurk around here like a little bitch and take the lumps you desperately deserve. I don't have to hide my avatar and its no secret who I am as my name is the same as the zone. As is red, and Wids.

Stop being a little cunt and say who you really are. Either put the picture of that crapcycle, or the Mario brothers reject as your avatar. That way there's no mistake in anyone's mind when I beat the idiot comments out of you, who I'm talking to. Your move bitch.

Plumber, personally I run like a chicken with my head cut off all day. I do office stuff evenings. I am booked for tomorrow (Saturday). However, I eat lunch and post while eating. I post while in line at the supply counter. I post while using the bathroom.

Just because someone posts during the day doesn't mean they are losers. We beat our all-time sales record by 25% last month. Don't let the fact that others post a lot make you feel justified in being unemployed since 08. Widder is in your same area and he's busy so its not like there's no work or anything. As an unemployed person who is living off of taxes paid by those of us who you accuse of posting too much, you SHOULD NOT keep insinuating that you are superior to us because of your assumption that we are non-productive because we frequent the forums.

Quit making excuses and blaming others and go get a job. Any job. If you've burned too many bridges in the plumbing teade go back to square one and bag groceries or flip burgers. Just because you have a plumbing license doesn't justify you to leach off of society for years on end while posing as a victim of circumstance.

Most, if not all, of the people who are unemployed these days are unemployed because they think they are above the jobs that are available. That I have no respect for.

I find it so ironic that a perpetually unemployed person continually accuses those who are earning their own waffles of not working hard enough and finds fault when they take a minute out of their day to post..

He doesn't seem to understand the concept of a 'Gentleman Plumber'.

I run the show and I'm licensed, but I only strap on the tools when I need to. Sometimes I strap on the tools because we're busy and we need the extra body and other times I strap on the tools because we're slow and it doesn't make good business sense to send out a person and run payroll for just a few hours worth of work. I've been doing this for a long time, I know exactly where the 'Sweet Spot' is.

Most days I'm fielding phone calls while stretched out in a recliner in my office with my nose buried in a book or out in the back 40 taming the land and forcing my will upon it.

I'm the one paying the bills and taking on *all* of the financial risks -- What I do with my time is my business, not his.
