Texas, guns and silencers, coming to a state near you soon....

Texas is on the verge of telling the BATFE to kiss their ass.

For many years gun suppressors (silencers) have been heavily regulated and taxed by the Federal Government. Texas is taking the position that if the silencers are made in Texas and stay within the State that they are none of the Fed's business. The legislation is planned to be a model for other states to allow their citizens to use silencers without government regulation. It will be really interesting to see how the Feds handle the issue.

Had you been consulted, ahead of time, and knowing what you know now,

Where would you have selected being born? I may have chosen Scotland or maybe one of the countries North of Scotland.
I really think that I would have fit in better.

I am really ill with the people that I live around. Except for a few close friends and family, I live in Trump Heaven, and it is not what I would have chosen. Whenever I go out, I am surrounded by shit-for-brains right-wingers, ignorant and proud; and that includes most of the professional people too! 20 years ago, it was not so bad, but the people are now feeling their oats and are becoming more belligerent and intolerant by the day. The legacy of the Reagan-Trump express train, and too many years of Rush fucking Limbaugh and right-wing Christian preaching. They have all of the answers even if they don't understand the questions.

I guess fate has chosen for me, and it is too late in life to move now, and I love the land I am on, so I choose seclusion as far as possible.

I just watched an older James Bond movie, and I will be damned if he doesn't remind me of me.

Although, I have to admit, I am better looking.

The World's most sophisticated "prepper."

Old Jeffery needs a place for "privacy" so he has a yacht built the size of a Navy Destroyer Escort. (actually I exaggerate, it is 17 feet shorter than the ship I served on.) It takes a crew of 60 to operate. I bet it will have better bunks, a better galley, and he won't have to stand the dog watch or swab the decks..... Privacy is simpler for me, I just close the bedroom door.

We really know that the purpose of the explosion of the sales of super yachts is that they rich want a way to get away from the zombie apocalypse when the breakdown of law and order hits close to home. Just pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag and smile, smile, smile.

Of course a half billion dollar boat is necessary for the world's richest man. The 50 million dollar annual expense of operating the thing is chump change for a man who made 17 billion dollars in one day in 2020. He probably has a lair hidden deep within a dormant Japanese volcano, complete with retractable roof and a goon squad of hundreds to man security for it.
