Gates...

Where the hell are you? The market is tanking, you should be here ringing a bell yelling "bring out your dead."

I hope you're well, I haven't seen you post in some time.

I've noticed a few old timers reappear lately, to some fanfare, then just as quickly disappear again.
Maybe us newer guys are driving them away with our fun and games, lol.
Change = the only guarantee.

A new year, for me, and a change from me.
My ignore button has resolved most of the outside issues I had, and changing myself took care of the other.
Some folks simply ain't worth talking too.
Sad, but true.

Well guys if it's me you think is the trouble then just put me on ignore. I put folks on ignore because I try to stop the fighting but no doubt I am part of the problem once a fight starts. My southern roots tend to go the way of the feud plus once you insult me I am pretty much done talking to you.

Reflecting on this some, it's probably better that since ignore isn't being used maybe I should move on. I cut back being here some already and leaving would help this place to get back to the good old boys just sitting around agreeing with each other.

Ya I have so many things I want to do but let the net grab me. Going to cut way back and get ready to do something better. If I destroy everyone's fun I don't really want to be here.

You ain't on my ignore list, and I'm still not advocating anyone blowing up the whole world either!
Discussions are always welcomed, that's what this place is for, attacking people for their faith, color, accident of their births, location their mama happened to be in when first dropped into this world, not so much.
Then again, there was that one time, October 5th, 1333 hrs, 2013 you said...........................

Thought about it over night and I believe most of the fights come from our political opinions. So my solution is to stay out of the politic side and the things that people want to argue about. I won't start any more threads on the events and if folks miss the events they can be happy not knowing.

It's been fun guys but talking guns will be easier on the social structure of this place, as long as you don't say anything bad about glocks.

I like Glocks, it's OK if you don't.

I like you, I'm sorry I insulted you.

Have a nice day.

That's kinda what Jimmy Carter said about Obama when he was running for the Presidency.

Wait until you see his policies . . .

Hell of a market run up today. Still not past the previous high over the last 9 months. 1.7 million job openings. Sure gets me wondering. My income has dropped due to some changes in the pay structure.

The employment numbers are promising, but it's hard to really tell given how cooked the books are.

We should see reality on the jobs numbers come November 6.

"Its the economy stupid!"

The mid term vote will settle the dust in several areas of question.

If voting mattered it would be illegal... it's all Kabuki theater. Wait'll you see the candidate the dems win with next time around and how it will infuriate the right.

I hear this from time to time, but Adam Shift and Maxine Waters in charge of major House committees, is simple reason enough to vote, and in these cases, voting does matter, a lot.

I agree about dogs.

Itís all about the mid terms. I was a dumbass and should have parked 2 weeks ago. But too much other stuff going on to think clearly.

So is the Fed Res. Trump is calling the shit out. Nobody has ever done it before. The banking cabal needs a smack down.

This does not appear to be gaining the expected traction, so what's next????

https://www.lifezette.com/2018/10/no...ican-strength/

Dims got to stop the caravan coverage, and also dent the HUGE early voting of people two weeks out,,,,,,,,, against their fellow dimwits

Once millions vote early, their shenanigans mean nothing between now and election day.

Desperation time
