The last few weeks have been unsettling. Because I have been trying to keep up with what's going on, I have been watching a lot of news. That's never a good thing to do if you are looking for peace and tranquility.
Updated 1145Eastern 27 June 2016 : Having read some more English blogs, it's clear that some people are primarily concerned about potential economic impact of leaving the EU, and worried about the uncertain future. The fact that they voted against leaving doesn't necessarily make them leftists or liberals. Thought I needed to clarify that.
At least the EU Bureaucrats can't make the Brits take more of these.
The Dems are hot and heavy on their little circus shows. They still don't get it about Moslem terrorism. Or, if they do, they don't care and are just trying to make a little hay out of the Orlando shootings.
I spent a lot of money this month on rounding out a few things. Heavy on .223 and .308 , plus some pistol ammo in .40 S&W, 45 ACP. I probably already have enough, but this business in California about requiring background checks to buy ammo is probably going to make it harder to get, as the decent people out there will be drawing down on supplies before it becomes law, assuming it does.
The Attorney General is sticking with her belief that we can handle Moslem terrorism with "love and compassion." I'll bet you a dollar to a donut she's never been into the Middle East. She ought to go to Lebanon for a weeks vacation. Spend it in Beirut. See what she thinks about loving Islamists when she comes back. If she comes back....
Of course, 50% of the country doesn't believe we have a problem with Islamic terrorism, because their beloved Barrack Hussein says so. Wonder how many people at that bar in Orlando thought that, and how many changed their minds afterwards. If they got the chance.
Spent a lot more than was in the budget on food, as well. When things get unsettled, I like every nook and cranny to be full of supplies. Both freezers full, pantry full, store rooms full. Of course, if I want something in particular it's guaranteed to be on the bottom of the freezer, but I will just have to deal with that. Can't think of anything else to do now, except keep an eye on developments.
Thought for the Day:
CBS Monday 27 June 2016
PORTLAND, Ore. -- An Oregon mother shot and killed a home intruder she found in her child's bedroom early Sunday, reports CBS affiliate KOIN.
Police say the 33-year-old woman returned home with her two children, 5 and 10, and found the unidentified intruder, 59. KOIN reports the woman shot the man, a stranger, with her personal handgun after a confrontation.
Police tell the station the woman and her children are victims in the situation. They say the family is traumatized. They were reportedly not hurt in the incident.
The woman cooperated with investigators and the case is being sent to the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office for review, according to the station.
Neighbor Amber Murray told the station the home was vacant for a while before the woman and her children moved in recently.
"I know when the previous renters were there, there was a lot of mischief," Murray said. "After they moved out I think there were a few squatters in and out of there."
