  1. With a 2 million dollar bond.. Smh 🤦 wtf...
  2. I suspect the SS aspect of the EO will boil down like this: If you are receiving a SS check for a mental issue (schizophrenia, paranoia, or some other psychotic disorder) then you will not pass the background check. If there is an appeals process (which there should be) and the aforementioned group is considered mentally "capable" then their SS check should be cut off, can't have it both ways.  I bet the vast majority of the "crazies" would rather stay on the government tit than deal with purchasing a firearm.   My only problem with this part of the EO is the number of people who might get swept under some disability coding error and are classified incorrectly.
  3. Costco looks to see how many items are on the receipt, e.g., 7 and count that number of items in your basket. For those who think Costco and similar stores are just about "bulk" items like peanut butter; well they sale computers, televisions, washers and dryers, refrigerators, mobile phones, safes, tools, lighting, furniture, etc etc. Generally speaking, their prices are awesome & you can't beat their warranty.
  4. [quote name="Sam1" post="1143431" timestamp="1398639128"]... As far as knowing the specifics of whatever happened, this is a privately owned board and I don't think we have a right to know anything that happens on the backend.[/quote] +1, and I doubt that the admins on the board are going to take time to appease current members with a banned member contact list. Perhaps, a forum member can monitor the banned members. Good luck to whomever takes on that chore
  5. Congrats to you and the Mrs. Lumber jack. I'm not sure where you lived in East TN but Davidson County is not as bad as others are making it sound, depending on what you are use to. What you are looking to gain by living in Middle TN, land?, low property taxes? entertainment?, resale value/home appreciation?, cool neighborhoods?, good school districts?, shopping?, so on and so forth. If you want land, then certainly the counties (Maury, Rutherford, Canon) south of Davidson are a good start, Wilson County, Cheatham County (Mike Breedlove for Sheriff!!! {shameless plug}) and even some parts of Williamson are priced reasonably. If you want good school systems, Williamson County hands down. Resale value, Williamson County and certain parts of Davidson like Sylvan Park, East Nashville, Green Hills, the Gulch, and Brentwood. I'm very familiar with the real estate market in the Middle TN area so feel free to pm me if you have any questions. Just so you know, I'm a resale value/home appreciation oriented person so I'm going to always look out of that green prism first. One thing to keep in mind for your wife (and yours) is the long commute if you decide to live outside of Davidson County & work a traditional schedule. I will echo what a couple have mentioned about the traffic being terrible but it's not too bad if you work odd hours/shifts. Good luck!!
  6. [quote name="TankerHC" post="1126743" timestamp="1395196587"]I write everyone when it concerns veterans and is required. Should say call. What amazes me the most is how the original post is ignored and everyone defends the President's action's. He made it racial. When a President proclaims that he is going to " correct a racial injustice" by awarding the MoH then he just brought a racial and political element into the award. I've done plenty over the last 15 year's and continue to do so. How about you? Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk 2[/quote] When it concerns issues (mainly gun rights, taxes, the economy) that I feel strongly about, absolutely. I've never even heard of Lt Garlin Conners until I read this post & I'm sure there are many others in the same boat so thanks for enlightening me about him, learn something new everyday.
  7. [quote name="TankerHC" post="1126657" timestamp="1395187716"]BTW, where is the defense of Lt. Conner? Where is Lt. Conners exception? He has dozens of high ranking people fighting for him and his widow. And has continously been told no. But when Obama wants to use the medal to pander, which is exactly what he has done, all he needs to do is select 24 people, push it through and use his pull. They did quite a few of these mass MoH ceremonies after the Civil War. Most were rescinded later when reviewed they showed no merit. That medal should not be used in any way as a political statement. That is exactly what the President has done. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk 2[/quote] Have your written your Congressman and military leadership regarding the oversight about Lt Conners? If so, what did they say? Also, have you been this passionate under the previous Presidential administrations and have you written the leadership for those periods of time as well? If so, what was their response? Perhaps, you should start a grassroots campaign for the defense of Lt. Conners and bring this issue to the forefront.
  8. [quote name="TankerHC" post="1126629" timestamp="1395184099"]I'm not sure who is disrespecting these soldiers other than Obama. Using the MoH in a mass awards ceremony to correct a racial injustice is extremely disrespectful in more ways than one. What would have been wrong with several smaller ceremonies and proclaiming the award for what it is? Actions above and beyond. Well I can tell you. Not only has he belittled the awardees but also the Medal. As well he has basically told Lt. Conners family that he did not count due to the color of his skin. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk 2[/quote] I certainly doubt that the black soldiers who were honored feel disrespected by receiving the award. Those soldiers could probably care less about the POTUS's personal/political agenda. They were honored and that's all that matters.
  9. Pretty cool swamp cooler. Those things are awesome, especially in the southwest where the humidity is low.
  10. [quote name="Nynick81" post="1111989" timestamp="1392571021"]... that's why I live out in the sticks in cheatham co.[/quote] And on that note, remember to vote Mike Breedlove for Cheatham County Sheriff!!
  11. Sorry for your loss. May HE keep you and yours in this time of need. Science is merely a miniscule grain of sand to HE who created it. There are some things that we can just not wrap our minds around and there is a reason for it. Once again, sorry for your loss.
  12. [quote name="bersaguy" post="1103699" timestamp="1391108295"]I guess he picked McGavock High School because it reminded him of schools in Chicago. 70 to 80% of students are gang members that attend school there and his audience of students were all hand picked so go figure..... talk with a bunch of thugs for an hour.............jmho[/quote] I'm pretty certain it wasn't because it reminded him of the schools in Chicago but rather because it is recognized as an "Academy of Nashville" based on its turnaround and forward thinking in education based in aviation, law, transportation, digital design, hospitality and communication. The CMA and Ryman Properties have contributed significantly to the school's program and I seriously doubt they would spend their money if 70 to 80% of the school's students were "gang members" and "thugs". Not sure where you got your percentages but it would be greatly appreciated if you cited your source because I would love to be corrected.
  13. Good find. Thanks for the linky. Always looking to support a home state biz.
  14. Sorry to hear about your father. May the Lord direct the chemicals, radiation and surgical hands to heal him
  15. I've put Linux Mint alongside (dual boot) various Windows OS's for family & friends and they have no complaints. They especially love it when Windows acts wonky and they can pull files from Windows while in Linux. Ubuntu has a ton of support in the Linux community so that is another option. Good luck
