  1. That explains the cellular outage today! It was your fault! I need to schedule to take my test, I'm confident but just need to get it done.
  2. If you get out to Jackson, let me know, I can make it there and would pick it up.
  3. Thanks for the suggestion on the PRI-G, I will be looking for that!
  4. I have never heard of AvGas. But I do know where to get ethanol free gas; and I need to reload my gas cans (2 x 5 gallons and another smaller can). I should go that way and hit up Autozone for some additives. Any recommendation on what additives are good? fyi found this on Amazon, it’s cheap so I ordered it. Fuel Additive
  5. I can't say much about the water grid, but the electrical systems have security in place to prevent a lot of issues with hackers. Specifically one of the big things is that it is air gapped these days from the network. Yes the front end is connected to the network but the actual controls and operations are not. Loading a new configuration that could cause issues would be extremely unlikely anymore. I know this because I worked on the design of those systems, the equipment that runs the controls the way the electrical generation works (control programs). While it would be much easier for a physical breech to cause problems. Just getting a tech to work at the facility who wants to cause trouble; can create a huge problem, easily with a little know how. This goes back to our original issue where if #### hit the fan in the US; it is not unlikely that someone would want to cause problems to our electrical grid who already works there, and has been working there for a long time. So yes, they can sabotage our electrical grid. That's why it is highly recommended to have a good generator at home. But you need to store fuel; and that along can be problematic because fuel doesn't last long.
  6. Finished the book Prairie Fire while on my business trip. While I think that he is a bit pessimistic; he is right in that if things go bad, it may happen fast and we may not be prepared for it. While I would like to say that TN should be less likely to get hit by much violence, you never know what could happen in Nashville and Memphis. Even then, I would think most of the violence would stay within the city and little would move out to the countryside. I hope!
  7. FYI since starting this post I have been studying for the HAM radio license. There are plenty of online practice tests, that uses the actual test questions. I’m now consistently getting 85 to 95%, only need 75% to pass. So I should be good to go. I’m going to find a test in a couple of weeks (busy next week). So not hard, not hard at all. Just a few hours of practice and you should be good to go.
  8. Already have done that. LOL. Honestly, I had the same reservations but I have heard nothing but good about it. Can't wait to get it, going to be another week or so (I'll be out of town for a week).
  9. My son moves in to his first apartment in Nashville this year; figured he may want it for Home Defense. But yeah, $200 is awesome, should have picked up a few more.
  10. In California they can vote in federal elections and there is no way to stop them. To get a license in CA all you need to do is to have an address. Take the address and go to the DMV and you can claim you're illegal and they'll give you a license; that is 100% identical to the CA licenses. Then to register to vote, you just need a license and address. You've got both. Bam, registered to vote. Voting day you don't show any ID just give your name and address. BTW, I left CA 3 years ago, just the other day I got a notice, delivered to TN, saying they believe I have left the state and they will keep me on the voting roster if I say I will vote in CA and no where else. Seriously, you mailed that to my house in TN, so why are you keeping me on the roster?
  11. My son lives in Nashville, ran across this today. Seems like it would be suited for home defense. https://palmettostatearmory.com/jts-m12ar-12ga-5rd-18-5-semi-auto-shotgun-black-m12ar.html Should be a good start.
  12. Ok, I agree with that, no problem. Makes more sense giving it to offset the costs of illegals, such as schools and hospitals.
  13. I agree with this, let's hope it is. But no one can deny that the border is bad, and needs to be fixed! Even Biden (although he has been saying the border isn't a problem) released this on 1/25/24 "For too long, we all know the border's been broken. It's long past time to fix it." (well why didn't you?) He goes on to say that he'll close the border **IF** he gets the funding for his Border Security Package. So what is in that border security package (Note, it officially hasn't been made public yet, but based on the past information leaked it is this) $60+ Billion to Ukraine $8B for Refugees (food, clothing, housing, etc). -- initial only, after that up to the state $1B for programs in other countries to help them there 5000/day illegals allowed in (1.8M a year) but closes the border only when it hits 8500/day (3M a year) 375 new immigration Judges 1600 Asylum officers 100 inspection machines (to detect fentanyl) This does nothing to fix the problem. My proposal NO money for Ukraine, Israel or anything outside of the US Build the Damn wall, similar to the one between Gaza and Egypt, not what we have now. 375 New Immigration Judges (or more) 1600 Asylum officers (who turn away anyone who does not qualify for asylum [the vast majority]) No entry into the US until court dates (the stay in Mexico policy Trump had that Joe removed) Streamline the legal immigration policy. Yes, background checks on everyone, but more agents to push the work and limits on how long it can take. Limit total LEGAL immigration to 1M per year. ICE is re-enforced with more agents to gather and deport illegals Businesses caught hiring illegals are penalized, financially based on the company net worth. (funds collected go to the ICE agency) Any one caught trying to enter the US illegally, is deported, and BANNED from ever being allowed LEGAL entry. To me, under Bidens proposal, the ones highlighted are NON-STARTERS. That is NOT a bi-partisan proposal, it does not address the issues and just demands more money for his pet projects.
  14. This thing in Texas is scaring me more than it should. Do I think it will eventually blow over? Yes, I think it will. But could it easily turn into something horrible, oh yeah.. That worries me.
