Flail Ex

This issue has been causing a lot of heart burn up in New York. First, it appeared that people could get $500 from the Department of Homeland Security for informing on their neighbors. DHS wants to know about potentially evil deeds like buying MRE's.  Then after a lot of back pedaling among the bureaucracy, the new party line was "yes, we want you to squeal on your neighbors, but we will only pay for tips that end in arrests for firearms violations."

It still reeks that DHS is trying to get neighbors to inform on neighbors, coworkers on coworkers, friends on friends. That's National Socialism at it's best.

  1. Yep. Get us packed together in urban areas so we can always be witness to each others business then bribe the weak to inform on their neighbors.

    What could go wrong?

  2. YA know Harry. There is a tab when you click on design for your blog that will let you delete 100 spam posts at a time. I get over 100 spam comments a day and then get rid of all of them in less than 30 seconds once a day.

    It's under the comments section. So far I have yet to see a spam comment that wasn't collected under that tab and instantly deleted.

    1. I have that engaged. Unfortunately it doesn't do anything about all that spam coming into my email. The only way I know some one has left a comment is when I check my email. Just going back and reading comments doesn't work because people will comment on posts that are months old.

    1. You probably still don't want people calling DHS when you buy something at a surplus store though.

    2. You are right. I can back my mini van so close to the door no one could see anything. I can drive my van right through the yard to our shed.

  4. G'day Harry,

    I know that you get to have lots of different firearms that are now illegal down here but boy the trade off seems to be almost not worth it. In America today you appear to have an alphabet of agencies all with one purpose, to spy on the ordinary citizen. From down here it seems that the number 1 growth industry in the US is "Law Enforcement/Security", all those agencies must be constantly tripping over each other trying to justify their existence.

    In Australia each state has it's own Police force, there is the Australian Federal Police (sort of like the FBI but in uniform) and ASIO (the internal security organisation who tackle foreign & domestic espionage). That's pretty much it.

    1. Even the post office spends a fortune on guns for their own little army. I don't even bother to try to keep up with all the little Rambo wannabes in government. It's ridiculous. The two biggest stinkers are the FBI and the ATF. They are renowned for framing people to get some face time in the news. They are also the perpetrators of Ruby Ridge and Waco. But you are right, there are so many little mini-armies now nobody can keep track of them all.

  5. What is a night flashlight? Is that like a globe of darkness from dungeons and dragons?
    Sorry, I make myself laugh.
    I'm glad I sold off all my firearms (again) yesterday and I buy 1 can of beans at a time until my EBT card balance is depleted.

    1. I was wondering what kind of weather proof ammo you can buy at a surplus store, myself.
