  1. The call in line continues to disconnect on me, I call in, I get 20 seconds, then the phones mysteriously hangs up. Never has happened to me before.

  2. Thank you Henry!


  3. Would have loved to have met your dad Henry, these really are the only kind of people I can really relate too. The goody two shoes types, the anal retenters drive me nuts, oil and water.

    You compare many who’s shit don’t stink with people like your father, really no difference, many of whom deserve time in the “no tell motel” themselves. It’s amazing when you show some balls, the respect from others naturally follows, something we could all learn from.

    I used to have a cousin who liked to tie cops to telephone poles (he actually used their own handcuffs) after he was pulled over, when asked why he said, “I didn’t feel like going to jail”. LMAO!

    He never saw a day locked up, cops left his ass alone after that.

  4. Henry, I was so surprised to hear you say that where you live, “every household is required to have a 12 gauge shotgun.” I did not know ’till yesterday that such “requirements” existed in this country. I guess I’ll have to do some research on just how many u.S. towns have such a requirement. It would be interesting to note because those towns could serve as a model of how things should be. I’ll see what I can find. And thank you for putting some hope in my day.


    1. Okay, I just found this: 5 American cities that require you to own a gun:

      They may rarely punish their citizens for choosing not to own a gun, but their loose mandates are more about making a statement than enforcing a law.

      1. Kennesaw, Georgia

      Kennesaw has the most well-known gun mandate in the country. In 1982, a law was passed requiring heads of households to own at least one firearm.

      Other cities have used Kennesaw as an example for gun mandates

      2. Nelson, Georgia

      Nelson unanimously passed an ordinance making gun ownership mandatory in 2013.

      3. Nucla, Colorado

      Nucla became the first city to mandate gun ownership in Colorado.

      With just around 700 people, Nucla passed what they call the “Home Protection Ordinance” in 2013, but does not actually enforce it.

      4. Gun Barrel City, Texas

      Gun Barrel got its fitting name as a safe haven for outlaws like Bonnie and Clyde during the Prohibition era.

      The city’s motto is “We shoot straight with you.”

      5. Virgin, Utah

      In 2000, the city council passed an ordinance making firearm ownership mandatory. The mayor at the time encouraged this move because most citizens had already owned guns.




      1. Thanks, Henry. I find this a very big deal. I kind of see it as a sleeping giant and that giant is getting ready to wake up in small towns all over the nation. Big towns, too. It’ll be like Switzerland has nothing on us. == 🙂

        From the article you gave link to:

        “Hescock said most people in Chiloquin would own a gun regardless of the law.”

        Sounds like you are among the right kind of people.
