  • Posted in thread: The Decline of Wood Products on 07-08-2014 at 04:24 AM
    Seems to me that the wood products industry needs to do a better job explain that they are
    "green" and "renewable." If you use a tree to make something, then the forest has economic
    value. Thus, it pa...

    I think Germany invading Russia was hands down the biggest mistake. Hitler got cocky.I'm not
    sure the Japanese Pearl Harbor attack was a strategic mistake. We would have starved Japan of
    the needed in...

    think are key:1. Germany's Invasion of Russia2. Germany's Declaration of War on U.S.3. Japanese

  • Posted in thread: Did the allies use the best strategy...? on 06-26-2014 at 09:13 PM
    I don't think airpower alone would have been sufficient. Strategic bombing was only possible
    due to the long range of the P-51 Mustang. Plus, the Bombers of World War 2, were also not
    tremendously acc...

  • Posted in thread: Open Carry vs. Concealed Carry: When is it appropriate? with Jerry Miculek on 06-15-2014 at 03:54 AM
    I'm not sure that open carry makes you safer. Right now, I'm wearing a $20 Timex that is the
    most valuable thing I have on me. However, if I was openly carrying a $700-$800 firearm and
    went out amongs...

  • Posted in thread: How to talk with people that always want to be right? on 06-14-2014 at 10:10 PM
    Most of the time, you can just respectfully listen to "right" people and roll your eyes later.
    If they think D-Day was June 16th, that is their issue. However, if they think they are right
    and present...

  • Posted in thread: CONFIRMED- Citizen Shot In Las Vegas Walmart Was A CCW Lic. Holder on 06-14-2014 at 06:08 AM
    I think Mr. Wilcox did the right thing in stepping up to confront an obvious gunman in what
    seemed to be trending towards a mass shooting. I'm sure he was focused on the obviously armed
    man who had ju...

    Every year, we strive to counteract the negative images of gun owners by showing that we can
    exercise the #2A responsibly and that we have the judgment needed to make our own decisions
    about firearms....

    Isn't Esquire that "men's magazine" that has tons of pictures of bare-chested Brad Pitt wannabe
    models and hardly any pictures of women? Unless you're in the market for a $9500 watch, there's
    no need ...

  • Posted in thread: World War II without Planes on 06-14-2014 at 03:46 AM
    Being a bit of a history geek, I have to ask some "what if?" questions once in a while. One
    thing about World War II is that it showed supremacy of air power over battleships. But,
    battleships were at...
