  1. The Investigation in Trump's ties to Russia

    https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/leaked-documents-show-commerce-secretary-concealed-ties-putin-cronies-n817711 The fact that this guy's name has never come up in regards to the Russia investigation leads me to believe there are a lot more politicians involved that have yet to be busted.
  2. For those that use water heaters

    Yes, that's what I was asking. Thanks lol
  3. I have my horse out at my father's property and I will need to hook up a small water heater to keep the water from freezing. Do any if you have an idea as to how much those cost to run?
  4. The Investigation in Trump's ties to Russia

    I'm wondering if Trump will try to fire Mueller.
  5. The Investigation in Trump's ties to Russia

    Sounds like charges are coming as soon as this Monday. The news is saying more than one person is likely to be charged. I would think Manfort would be first. http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/27/politics/first-charges-mueller-investigation/index.html
  6. Lift the slaughter ban?

    I'm fine with horse slaughter, but I also know why people want them killed off. They complain that horses are not native and damage the ecosystem but neither are the cattle that are grazing on the land. Some say that the horses have fit in well to the ecosystem and it's the cattle and sheep that do more harm. I'm not sure either way but I do believe it is more about protecting cattle ranchers than it is about protecting the ecosystem.

    "The world is a dangerous place and we’ve got folks that are talking openly about use of nuclear weapons,” he said. “It’s no longer a bipolar world where it’s just us and the Soviet Union. We’ve got other players out there who have nuclear capability. It’s never been more important to make sure that we get this mission right.” This is the crux of nuclear war. There are no winners. If NK bombs us, we bomb them, Russia and China, South Korea and Japan get involved. The loss of life would be astronomical. Even if we're are capable of shooting down their nukes and we very likely are, it still means large scale war. I don't even want to think about it.

    I thought the same thing. Most new retirees would at least be in their low 40s or older. And that is if they joined when they were 20 years old. But yeah I am curious. This may be nothing or "the calm before the storm". Who knows.

    Discharged and retired are not the same in this regard. If they were in the military for less than 20 years you are discharged and are considered IRR for a period of time. But that is not the same for retired military. That's why they had to do an executive order the amend it. Now they can pull out the retired before using reserves. Now the wording was also changed. In the final section of 688 states that the aforementioned two exclusions are “waived” in “periods of war or active emergency” — which is exactly what Trump has just affirmed exists right now. So the thinking is that our airforce is low on pilots. They need experienced pilots right now. They did not have time to offer incentives to new recruitment and get them trained. and there is also the possibility that the needed highly skilled people back in that they were not likely to find in the Reserves. Edit: They also increased the number of retired military they could call back in. It used to be 25 per service. They bumped it up to 1000.

    https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2017/10/20/presidential-executive-order-amending-executive-order-13223 Great. As if our veterans were not burdened with enough baggage. Now they can be called out of retirement at any time. And they are starting with 1000 airforce pilots.

    No, she is an Aussie. But it fell through. I asked to meet at their home, wanted to see the parents. The seller started responding with weird text messages about how I needed to have cash in hand. Seriously, they must have texted it 4 times. Wanted to meet in a parking lot. Would not send photos of papers or vet records. Just gave me an uneasy feeling so I decided against it. Maybe I am paranoid but did not feel comfortable dealing with this person at all. My hay guy has a breeding pair of Aussies. And they are both incredibly friendly. He said he would have a litter in the spring. I already do business with him and like his dogs so maybe I will just wait for that litter.

    We are going to meet this little girl tomorrow.

    Here is part of my yard. I have skeletons on the roof by my window. Looks pretty cool at night all lit up.
  15. New Week New Day

    It's been quite warm the last few days here. We spent the weekend putting up Halloween decore outside. It looks pretty cool :) On the 14th we are going to look at puppies. All of them are boarder collie pups. And Bissell will be paying for all adoptions that weekend. Unfortunately my truck started having issues so I had to send it in. $1600 fix. That bites a little. And now I have nothing to drive until they are done.
