Re: Joe Biden

https://todaysfive.com/joe-biden-facing-ridicule-after-revealing-he-sits-on-the-toilet-backwards/ In his increasingly bizarre behavior, Joe Biden describes how he sits on the toilet backwards, so he can do his business on the tank top. He’s not going to be the nominee. As hilarious and well written...

changes in three features -- levels of the liver enzyme alanine aminotransferase (ALT), reported body aches, and hemoglobin levels –- were most accurately predictive of subsequent, severe disease. I hate incomplete information like this. What about hemoglobin levels? Do they mean high, or low? Is t...

Re: AG Opinion Request RQ-0341-KP Restrict Sale of Guns

I think it's interesting how quickly this opinion was issued. Normally opinions take weeks or months to receive after the request is made. I wonder if it was so rapid this time due to the pressing and time sensitive nature of the issue or because of how easy it was to interpret and explain the law? ...

Re: Rights vs Responsibilities

What scares me about government-mandated orders, is, "What happens next?" Every year flu, make their rounds. Have we opened up Pandora's box? Every year should the government mandate that everyone get a flu shot? Every year should the government be able to mandate no gatherings of more than 10 peop...

Re: Rights vs Responsibilities

I would like to encourage everyone to be civil. You can, and are encouraged to, post your opinions. But you are not asked to belittle or demean other people and their opinions in the process. There are a lot of good comments here, but it sounds like we are enemies when we are not. Back to the subje...

Re: Run on Ammo

Now I'm REALLY glad I picked up ammo just before all this started. Got a Ruger 10/22 and a Sig P320 (.45) just 3 weeks ago, and picked up a few extra boxes of ammo for both while I was there. Quite the fortunate coincidence.

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

Before we all light our butts on fire and run in circles with panic, let's not forget that the VAST MAJORITY of people who get this virus will be just fine and likely will show little to no symptoms. Of personal interest to me is the 7.3% mortality among diabetics(based on credible US an internatio...

Re: A Lot of People Are Finding Out You Can’t Just Buy a Gun Online

Sadly, that's not all that surprising. Hopefully it helps drive home how badly the media twists the issue.

Rights vs Responsibilities

Hey all, I'm interested in hearing some opinions. Across the country we are seeing bans on large gatherings, mandatory quarantines, businesses shut down, travel restricted, and all manner of other things that sound an awful lot like martial law. Some of these things sound perfectly reasonable given ...
