Re: Arbery case

What turned out bad for these men had absolutely nothing to do with race-baiting nonsense unless you're paying attention to the side commentary on the media. The legal arguments towards their guilt are actually remarkably clear if you've paid attention to the case, and very, very little attention i...

Re: Arbery case

If there is one thing I think I could confidently convict those three men of without even hearing much of the evidence is that they were complete and total dumbasses unless they were so far removed from the news and current affairs they were totally clueless. I remember in the movie Time to Kill th...

Re: Kyle Rittenhouse

I see that the Ahmaud Arbery trial ended up with a conviction on all counts for all three men who will probably be spending the rest of their lives in prison or at least the better part of it. I have not follwed this case closely so I'm not going to second guess the jury because I didn't see any of...

Re: Still Here... By The Skin Of My Teeth

Hello, my friends. An update for those of you who know my situation. Ever the dramatic one, the past 2 months have been easily the worst 2 months of my life. But I am still here and alive. Many of you know i've been going through some pretty harrowing times in leaving an abusive relationship. For n...

Re: Rocket Stoves

I use one for outdoor water bath canning. It's made of 16 fire bricks and a grate from an old gas stove. You don't need to get fancy--my homemade stove works every bit as well as something you'd buy. There are plenty of YouTube videos that show how to do it. The homemade ones are my favorite. Unfor...

I'm in the same boat, moda. I have read a lot about rocket stoves online ( example , this is interesting too ), but I've never used one.

Re: Rocket Stoves

A rocket stove is a measurable improvement over a Franklin stove. It is a good design. Welcome to the 19th century. You do know that all 'energy to heat' mechanisms are 100% efficient, I assume? (Physics 101) Just make sure the heat goes where you want it to. The great thing about rocket stoves is ...

Rocket Stoves

I'm trying to up my "Grid-Down" game and Rocket Stoves appear to be an amazing tool to generating efficient cooking/boiling heat from small amounts of biomass. Anybody here vouch for them, have any advice on brands/size/etc? Based on my initial research, I'm surprised these things aren't ubiquitous ...

And while I don't like COVID state orders, those are mostly state issues. Perhaps in theory, but hardly in practice. The CDC and Fauci get to own this one.

We already cured it. Trump was the cancer, and democratically voting him out of office in a lawful election was the cure.

There hasn't been any meaningful libertarian presence here for years.

1) His own police chief and others stated Chauvin's tactics were not appropriate given the scenario, nor approved generally... This was a key linchpin in the trial IMO.

Yikes, indeed.

I wonder what police force members think of the conviction. It's possible that a martyr has just been created. A "there but for the grace of God go I" situation. There's a reason why police have enjoyed relative immunity up to now. They are put into dangerous situations on a regular basis, and bad ...
