Military Discount: Lowe’s vs. Home Depot

I always choose Lowe’s over Home Depot. The people are generally more useful at Lowe’s, but the main difference between the two stores – their product offerings are nearly identical – is their policies on military discounts. Lowe’s provides a no-nonsense, 10% off your entire purchase upon presentation of a military ID. Doesn’t matter if …

Amazon Reviews – don’t say anything bad about Amazon!

This one was refused: The only litter my cats will all use. Had one with litter-box issues awhile back, and Dr. Elsey’s additive resolved that issue almost immediately. Have only bought this ever since. The only bad thing is Amazon makes my mailman deliver to my house now… and these bags are a bit heavy. …

Altruistic, or Vulture?

Some as asshole calling himself, “Admiral”, keeps appearing on my television trying to sell mortgages to veterans.  But he offers nothing that the VA doesn’t already guarantee.  In fact, he’s trying to capitalize on our benefits, charging a fee for the privilege of using our benefits. This is the worst kind of scummy behaviour; preying …

FREEDOM TO DISPLAY THE AMERICAN FLAG ACT OF 2005

Another story today about a condo association telling the mother of a Marine and a Soldier to take down her American Flag.  Can I get a committee together to start slapping these idiot HOA board members until they learn not to be so damned stupid? http://insider.foxnews.com/2015/07/20/condo-demands-military-mom-take-down-american-flag To the Southdale Gardens Condominium Association:  Believe it or …

The really good ones all use YAHOO

No one uses this page to contact me for anything that really concerns me (the people who need to contact me know my real address). Occasionally spammers try to get around the CAPTCHA, and so, so many losers think I’m “that guy“… but I’ve been noticing a trend. Most of the losers dreaming of a …

Churchill’s Wisdom

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist …

Background Checks

Lots of talk about “expanding” background checks for firearms purchases. Lots of reasonable people on both sides of the argument disagree what that would mean. But so far no one seems to have suggested the obvious – probably because so few in the argument have ever actually participated in what goes into buying a firearm. …

Lowering Gun Violence

This via Jon McNaughton.  I have no idea the validity of the numbers, but the sentiment is thought provoking. This morning I was reading a blog entry on Glenn Beck’s The Blaze when I ran across this blogger’s words.  I thought it was rather interesting.  Here is the post: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/01/18/the-end-of-gun-control-or-anarchy-see-the-chilling-possibilities-created-by-3d-printed-guns/ Rangerskippy said: Want to see a …

The fans write letters!

As promised, this one from the “fans of reality tv” file: This one from one “Breanna (aka Rihanna) Riles“, who has obviously worked long and hard at her studies to write the following: “hello my name is breanna and u may not know me but im from bessemer alabama u may not have heard of it …
