I told my cousin, who is an ardent Harris - Biden supporter, that they need to just call the election for Biden so that the Republicans can start acting the same way that the Democrats have been acting since election night of 2016. I think there are enough skeletons in 'Ol Dementia Joe's closet to keep us entertained until Nancy gets her legislation passed to allow the Congress to remove a sitting President when they believe he (or she) has medical issues that may inhibit his (or her) ability to do his (or her) job. LOL. Because I still say that Harris is the intended candidate. Biden is the vehicle. But if Nancy is successful, any President could be a target of congress... Likely Unconstitutional, anyway, and the SCOTUS is unlikely to make decisions based on emotion anymore.
Perhaps we could get a freshman Republican congresscritter to say on national television "We're gonna impeach that Mother Fucker" immediately after the congresscritters are sworn in on the 2nd (3rd?). But then I think to myself, Republicans aren't usually that classless.., so, no...
Anyway, as of this moment there is still a possibility that President Trump will be reelected. The Republicans have retained the Senate. As far as I know not a single Republican Congressman lost a seat to a challenger. Iowa got rid of Democrat Congresswoman "Absent Abby Finkenauer" and replaced her with Republican Ashley Hinson. Ashley is a nice lady and will be good at representing my district. Steve King's district stayed overwhelmingly red, even with a huge influx of coastal money in support of the Democrat contender. (Steve is gone, a victim of his own unapologetic views and a Democratic effort to make him out to be something that he isn't).
There is plenty of concern about the validity of some of the ballots. No surprises there. It will be an interesting couple of days.
Next topic. If you would have told me 2 days ago that I would ever buy a .32ACP pocket pistol I would have laughed and called you crazy and then I would have laughed some more, possibly peeing my pants.
I seriously use to laugh when I'd go into Mills Fleet Farm and see .32ACP on the shelf.
There's this. I saw it on Ernie's fb page and messaged him to tell him it's "cute". Then I watched a couple of videos on it. Beretta 3032 Tomcat Inox. Whoa. Fairly highly regarded as a pocket pistol for self defense. It has a flip up barrel so you never have to rack the slide if you don't want to. 7 + 1 capacity. I messaged Ernie to ask if ammo was readily available for it. He said "yes". Which simply meant that he had some. Like everything else, mostly no one has any. LOL.
So I called the shop to ask a couple more questions. Sean answered the phone. "Oh, hi Paul... hold on a minute, Ernie is having me set a gun aside for you". Hmmm... And that is how it goes. Plus he set aside 300 rounds of ammo. "I didn't know how much you'd want". :) And a "free" tee shirt, which I was planning to buy anyway...
Ernie is in Marion, Iowa (You may have heard about the "derecho" that hit them a few weeks back. Whoa!), about 60 miles from me. He is a good guy and my "go to" gun guy. He treats me good. He offers training. Every gun he sells has a "CVO Lifetime Guarantee". That is on his dime. He is a true independent businessman. He is involved in his community. He cares about his community. He employs people from his community. He gives back to his community. We need more businessmen like Ernie.
I shared this picture of the pistol with one of my brothers and 2 of my sons, as well as an old Army buddy.. Their response? I shit you not... All of them said "Cute".
That's all I have for now. Cute.
