If you've never followed +Darrell Loudermilk​ before, you need to. Man of character and some great write ups.

This is a good cause, just do what you can to make a difference. Hell, he's doing all the running, you just have to show some green.
 
I hope you guys won't mind me mentioning this again.

I'm doing a fundraising run for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I hope to run 130 miles* between October 21 and Thanksgiving. So far I've covered a little more than 90 of those miles. If you would like to contribute a dollar or two to a worthy cause, you can click the link below. Thank you in advance, and thanks to the generous folks who have already made donations.

*I picked 130 miles because that is two sets of 65. The number 65 has symbolic significance to CF patients and their loved ones. 
Please show your support by giving through Darrell's Supporter page and share this link to spread the word about CYSTIC FIBROSIS FOUNDATION HEADQUARTERS

I can't remember who it was, but someone in my circles extolled the virtues of solar power, and that we had the tech to let people work 8 hour work weeks with this tech...
 
Not so Green Solar Plant....
....data from the California Energy Commission show the plant burned much more natural gas than expected, as the electric power generated by the plant has 40 percent below expectations. As a result, Ivanpah burned enough natural gas in its first year of operation in 2014 to emit more than 46,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide -- nearly twice the threshold for power plants or factories in California to be required to participate in the state’s carbon dioxide cap-and-trade program.

I'm not much for resharing requests, but I have to say this is pretty useful and very "hey, let's create something and fill a need!". It even has an adapter for the new USB-C.  I confess I am going to do this, and so should you.
Charge any device. Samsung, Apple, Nokia, Sony, HTC, LG, Motorola, Kindle Fire, Blackberry... ① Use a Lightning tip for all the latest Apple devices. ② Use Micro-USB for Android, Microsoft, Blackberry – everything non-Apple. ③ USB-C is the new standard, coming soon from major brands, ...

Reposting 'cause I'm an idiot.
 
(edit: I forgot to include the link like an idiot.)


Something to think about. Please be cognizant of your surroundings. Read the article. I think those that do NOT carry will have a better understanding of those of us that do carry.


10. The fact that criminals know that some of the population may be armed at any given time helps to deter violence against all citizens. Permit holders don’t believe that every person should necessarily be armed. We recognize that some people may not be temperamentally suited to carry a firearm or simply may wish not to for personal reasons. However we do encourage you to respect our right to arm ourselves. _Even if you choose not to carry a firearm yourself please oppose measures to limit the ability of law abiding citizens to be armed. As mentioned before: criminals do not observe “gun free zones”__. _Help by not supporting laws that require citizens to be unarmed victims._

►Core Principles  - 
 
Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

This is calcium acetate. I have to take 2-3 of these per meal per day. It's to absorb the phosphorus that my kidneys can no longer filter out of my body.

This is 8 months worth The VA sends in bulk, obviously.

Talk about a pill party....

So when exactly did "The United States" become a singular noun? It is a thoughtful question even today, when considering the perception of the United States as a Federal entity or as a grouping of independent states with a Federal Governance.
 
Interesting when you think about it. From an article in The Washington Post published in 1887 (http://itre.cis.upenn.edu/~myl/languagelog/archives/002663.html) :

Along the line of fire from the Chesapeake to Sabine Pass was settled forever the question of grammar. Not Wells, or Green, or Lindley Murray decided it, but the sabers of Sheridan, the muskets of Sherman, the artillery of Grant. ... The surrender of Mr. Davis and Gen. Lee meant a transition from the plural to the singular.
"There was a time a few years ago when the United States was spoken of in the plural number," reads an article published April 24th, 1887, in The Washington Post. "Men said 'the United States are' — 'the United States have' — 'the United States were.' But the war changed all that."

This is a hero. This is news to be shared. Not background of who, why what, on the killer.
 
HERO ALERT! SHARE AND SHARE AGAIN! This man deserves no expense spared for his full recovery.
Army vet Chris Mintz was shot seven times as he tried to save other students during the massacre in Oregon – yet he managed a smile in his hospital bed.
He “tried to protect some people,” his aunt Sheila Brown told NBC News. “We were told he did heroic things to protect some people.”
Mintz, 30, underwent surgery after being shot in the back, abdomen and hands, and also had two broken legs, she said.
“We’re not sure how his legs got broken,” she told the network. “He was on the wrestling team and he’s done cage-fighting so it does not surprise me that he would act heroically.”
Mintz, who is originally from Randleman, NC, served about 10 years in the Army and had just started college, Brown said.
“It was a great, great shock … We’ve all been sitting on pins and needles and praying very hard,” Brown said, adding that Mintz was “an extremely good guy.”
Chris Harper-Mercer, 26, was identified as the maniac who killed nine people and injured seven others Thursday at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg after demanding to know their religions.
He was shot dead by Douglas County sheriff’s deputies, Sheriff John Hanlin said.
Mintz’s cousin, Derek Bourgeois, told The Daily Mail that Mintz charged at the shooter.
“There was no way he was going to stand around and watch something this horrific happen,” Bourgeois said, adding that Mintz is expected to recover.
Bourgeois told the paper that he and Mintz had joined the Army together after high school.
Bourgeois was stationed in Fort Bragg, NC, and Mintz was sent to Fort Lewis in Washington.
Mintz’s aunt Wanda Mintz told Fox 8 that he could have easily died.
“I really think that if he wasn’t such a strong, young guy, he may have died,” she said.
His family said Mintz was in Oregon mainly to raise his son.
“My brother talked to Chris on the phone while Chris was walking into school to tell him to remind his grandson that Grandpa said, ‘Happy birthday,’” said Wanda Mintz.
His family remains optimistic about his chances for a full recovery.
“His vital signs are OK. He’s going to have to learn to walk again, but he walked away with his life and that’s more than so many other people did,” his cousin Ariana Earnhardt told Fox 8.

Well done sir!  You embody the very American spirit the left seeks to destroy.  I am proud you have showed them they are never going to succeed.

Creator of The Conservative Union community on G+, Book Worm, Extrovert, Tea Junkie...
Introduction
Just a guy, taking one day at a time. I have a beautiful,loving Wife and incredible kids that keep me on my toes. I enjoy reading: historical, science fiction, mysteries. I am a complete Jonathan Kellerman nut, absorbing his books in a weekend sitting.

I am a Conservative Constitutionalist, and the owner of The Conservative Union, the largest Conservative Community of G+. Socrates said it best: "To find yourself, think for yourself". 

I've come from a dark place in these last few years, these chapters in my life, to a place with fewer shadows, and I like it here. I still have my Dark Humor, and my sarcastic wit, but as time has gone by, I have learned to enjoy the sweet & sour...

 As the Marquis de Sade said; "Imperious,choleric,irascible, extreme in everything,with a dissolute imagination the like of which has never been seen;there you have me in a nutshell; kill me or take me as I am,for I shall not change."

Bragging rights
I have the best family. Ever.
