Postus Maximus

Postus Maximus (5/5)



  1. And they're down on 12th South, not West End by Centennial Park. Good pizza. There or the Franklin location which is a pretty chill spot as well.
  2. Mac is right about these just being political games. But don't think funding for veterans programs will be safe from cuts. Just hope they are logical ones as time changes the mission. Everything in federal programs comes back to head counts. The VA Healthcare system is still supporting a lot of Vietnam Era Veterans, but eventually that generation will reduce in VA Healthcare enrollees through natural passing (hopefully after long and happy post-military lives). So, when the VA is around to serve the numbers from the all-volunteer era which had a huge drop-off from the Vietnam years, there will be tough choices about how much infrastructure to keep around in terms of hospitals and clinics...especially in distance between facilities. The cuts may look huge on paper, and will be harder for some locations than others. It would also be a decent time for the government to start thinking about how to use the healthcare system at-large for veterans services through a Medicare/Medicaid/TriCare type program where they just reimburse physicians and facilities in a fee for service model. They started this with Veteran's Choice, but that was for delays and to a lesser extent distance, not a going forward transition. It can certainly be done for a lot of things veterans deal with. For those more specialized disabilities, I would think opening military hospitals is an avenue to explore. I've never seen a Wounded Warriors Project effort in action that wasn't fundraising. That may just be my lack of visibility, however. Their CEO since 2016 who came in to help clean things up after the issues surfaced was the Brigade Commander of 3 BCT; 101st ABN DIV while I was supporting that unit off and on in Afghan and Iraq. He was an alright guy back then, hopefully he still is. I do know that if you want to make sure your charity dollars to veterans causes has a good impact, The Fisher House Foundation is still doing important work, as is the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. So if you want to consider any of those, your money will be well spent. Way less advertising from both, so the impact of every dollar into their programs and not their marketing is more.

  3. Once the initial craze and price gouging died down... The would be a forgone conclusion auto version of the CZ Scorpion and an SBR with suppressor in .300BLK for subsonic shooting. I already have a SBR for 5.56mm with a Tax Stamp. Aside from that, don't see the prudence in cost of more full auto and certainly not a belt fed. Not unless I win the Powerball or Mega Millions.
  4. Initials of my nickname and the MOS of first and best job in the army.
  5. Hoping for the best outcome.
  6. The inflation of recent times has shown us people want their food cost back down, quickly. That means migrant workers in the fields. Nowhere close to even half of Americans are willing and able to meet the productivity to pay ratio of migrant. Also, the news is queueing up their summer stories to fill time when Congress takes summer vacations once the debt ceiling is in the rear view. See y'all back here in this thread or a new one in a few years.
  7. I heard from a friend that Clarksville is getting one too? I suppose I'll check it out when visiting my goddaughters and their parents after it opens.
  8. 2008 was a time when the Army was so hard up for able bodies, every unit deploying to Iraq and Afghanistan had a stop loss order to prevent people from ETS'ing during the deployment (yours truly included), and the words "moral waiver" entered our lexicon to help us understand the malcontents who a few years ago wouldn't have qualified arriving to the unit. I shutter to think about how loud the klaxons were sounding to make the Army kick this guy out in the middle of all that. Especially if he was in a line unit.
  9. Using a flint was something I learned as a Cub Scout way back when. Pretty hard to beat for all around utility, plus some small, lightweight, and cheap kit. Still keep the lesson in mind even when I can use easier methods.
  10. The veneer of mental stability is a lot thinner than people are comfortable acknowledging. I say this as someone who has had to fight off "the grey" as as Jay Glazer calls it because it's part of my genetic code, apparently. Reach out to someone if you need that anchor point, from someone you trust, a stranger if needed, a professional if you have the time...pretend your life depends on it, because it might.
  11. This would have been questionable inside the store. Him following her out to the parking spot is not going to look good. Chuck has the right of it.
  12. Not by choice, but everything you listed is by and large overwhelmed by Heller and McDonald, the adoption of Constitutional Carry in a lot of states, and the Bruen decision (which will be more important as time goes on). Legally, we're in far less danger of being disarmed than at any time since the post revolutionary war period. These are salad days for gun owners unless you're fixated on full auto.
  13. He's only 27, so plenty of time. Especially now that he has national attention and a platform.
