   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  If any of you have friends who are on the left that are so upset that you or a lot of us here, are against bringing the refugees here, please read Ann Coulter's article of Dec. 30, 2015. Please read it and make sure you pass on what the article reports to others on all your social media. People, this is what is coming here! We must wake people up. You probably already know about the rapes and sexual assaults in Europe where the refugees are running wild. These reports were held back by the authorities over there and are just now getting reported.
The story Ann is reporting on is so important. It should get as much attention as we can call to it. I'm begging you, this is our duty. We can't keep quiet about this.

   Fireball27 posted on Jokes  Two Middle East mothers are sitting in a cafe chatting over a pint of goat's milk. The older of the two pulls a folder out of her handbag and starts flipping through photos. They start reminiscing.

''This is my oldest son, Mujibar. He would have been 24 years old now.’' 'Yes, I remember him as a baby.'' says the other mother cheerfully. "He's a martyr now though." the mother confides. "Oh, so sad dear...'' says the other.

''And this is my second son, Khalid. He would have been 21.’' ''Oh, I remember him,'' says the other happily, ''he had such curly hair when he was born.’' ''He's a martyr too...'' says the mother quietly. ''Oh, gracious me...'' says the other.

''And this is my third son. My baby. My beautiful Ahmed. He would have been 18'', she whispers. "Yes," says the friend enthusiastically, ''I remember when he first started school…'' ''He's a martyr also,'' says the mother, with tears in her eyes.

After a pause and a deep sigh, the second Muslim mother looks wistfully at the photographs and, searching for the right words, says, "They blow up so fast, don't they?"

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  A lady writing a letter to the editor in our local paper hit it out of the ballpark with her comments. She was explaining the difference between theft, and charity. A liberal had spoken about how the government supported people, and this lady said that was theft from the taxpayers and not charity. She pointed out how at the end of August Glenn Beck asked his audience, "mostly hateful, bigoted, xenophobic republicans, and TEA Party supporters," to donate $10 million by Christmas to help rescue Iraqi, and Syrian Christians from almost certain death at the hands of ISIS. She said at that point of her letter, donations were at $13 million. That's charity! Not sending money to some government bureaucrat so they can get raises and bonuses spreading money around. The first 149 refugee's were moved to safety in Slovakia, where they were set up with housing, food, job training, and language classes. I believe she is right on the money with her letter, and I couldn't have said it better.

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  I have had it with the media and the left! Every time I hear "Donald Trump is causing terrorists to join ISIS", I am going to counter with, "No it's Hollywood women showing their T and A! Lets all ask Hollywood to consider the feelings of Muslims, and quit showing women not wearing a burka. How about that liberals? Do not help recruit for ISIS, by wearing scoop neck blouses, showing cleavage, bare arms and legs, etc. Liberal women start wearing your burkas now. Don't give ISIS a reason to hate us! While we are at it, lets ask Hollywood to cut their "carbon footprint" and not produce anymore movies. We already have enough, thank you.

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  A story is being reported about a woman in California getting into an argument with some Muslim men who were praying in a park. The video taken by one of the Muslim men reports to show how the woman is picking on them and hits at the camera. What the story doesn't tell about, other than in the name of the park, is that this is taking place at a back-up water supply for the East Bay, namely Oakland. The park is Lake Chabot Regional Park. These guys are just trying to get reactions from people so they can claim they are being picked on. Why would they go to a water supply lake to pray? Lets see if and how they cover this in the main stream media.

   Suejeanne  I looked up the story - looks like it is shaping to be called a "hate crime" - against her! If I understood correctly, 8 guys approached her - what happened BEFORE they started filming that upset her that she threw her coffee and umbrella at them? Even if she said something deemed offensive to them, they will be sure to have her life turned upside-down so she will never take her walk there - maybe she will lose her job, too - will anyone else taking a walk in that park report anything in the future or will be they be afraid of being labeled a racist or "profiling" - just as the person who saw things going on in Farook's garage?
here is a link to an article in the WSJ about Eunice Stone, who thought she heard a worrisome conversation by three young men in Shoney's in her small-town in Georgia. The article mentions that when the cars were stopped in Florida, the explosive-smelling dogs DID pick up something but nothing came of it - but it was an object lesson for everyone else about what can happen to you if you report something.

   MeiDei  It wasn't that long ago that 5-6 'students' from the ME were caught at a reservoir, very late at night, in a restricted area. When apprehended by police they claimed they were working on a college project. The reservoir supplies water to Boston & surrounding communities. They were let go; never heard if police followed up with their professors. The water was tested, no contaminants found.

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  I found a video on youtube that shows just what I was getting at by suggesting a tactical flashlight. Tactical Flashlight for Self-Defense Counterattack typed in the youtube search shows how to use a tactical flashlight and a magazine for self defense.

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Please people, heed my advice and get yourself and loved ones a tactical flashlight! They are advertising them all over. They are not hard to find, and they are not expensive. We have to protect ourselves someway and a tactical flashlight will incapacitate an attacker. You just can't open your eyes against the bright light. Just like when someone takes a picture with the flash. Only the "flash" stays shinning on your eyes and makes it impossible to do anything but shield your face. While they shield themselves you ATTACK! And make it hurt! This is a way all of us can fight back against any attacker, not just terrorists.

   Fireball27  You can order them online, or go to a store like Lowe's, True Value, Wal-Mart etc. Watch the videos on youtube about what to look for, and if there is a gun shop close by, see what they have. This seems to be such an inexpensive way to protect yourself at least a little.

   Fireball27  There is also a home sized (11.5" ) 480 lumen light on Lowe's website for only $29.97. If you get a tactical flashlight and want to show it off to your friends, make sure to tell them to close their eyes first. They will get the point when it is so bright, even with their eyes closed.

   Surfhut  My son was mugged at gunpoint last Sunday at 3:30am in NYC. He works in the food industry and was on his way to work. Guess what I'm getting him for Christmas.

   Safetydude  With all due respect Surf...;get your son a Glock and lessons.
The idea is to kill the mugger, not just to incapacitate him.

   Fireball27  Hey Safetydude didn't you notice she said New York City? He would be the one getting arrested for having a gun. I still say blind them, and then beat the snot out of them. At least you know they will have suffered a little pain. They all understand pain. Otherwise they usually get away with no repercussions. And Surfhut I'm so sorry this happened to your son. I'm assuming he is doing well. I hate when these idiots in the media say "no one was harmed in the robbery", yeah right, ever have someone stick a gun in your face? A friend was working in a bank and was held up at gunpoint. No shots fired, but she was never the same after that robbery. Give my best wishes to your son.

   RedWhiteBlue  Glock has a nice small size one for carrying. I do find the large ones a bit hard to conceal. And the recoil on the smaller one is easier on the wrist, am, etc. It's a cutie, I tell ya!

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Anyone see the Washington Post story on the town in Michigan? It now has a majority of Muslims on the town council. There are pictures of women wearing the "nijib"? the full cover cloak, with only the eye slot to see out of. And this really got me, the "call to prayer" is played 5 times a day! Seniors have been complaining about being awaken at 6am to the "call". This is in America! Around here seniors complain about the morning train. I can't wait to see how many people try to sell their houses while the "call to prayer" sounds loudly in the neighborhood. I wonder how much of a selling point that will be?

   Balogreene  Scares me how this could happen. But, maybe a lot of Americans are being pretty blasé about how they vote. I know I have a sister, her husband, MIL, BIL, SIL, and four children who are. Me, my 2 sisters and BIL, I think one step-nephew, and his new wife, surely can't outvote them. We keep hoping someone gets bored and doesn't vote. Can you imagine? Some of them want Bernie, and some Hillary?
November 23 at 18:18 EST .


   Fireball27  Here is what to ask them. Are they ready to wake up to the "call to prayer" at 6am? Also if they are fine with it, how do they think the other people in the neighborhood will react when their property value drops because of it?

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  What can we do if attacked like the people in Paris? If you don't have a gun, are you going to hide under a table while the shooter goes about his carnage? I think I have a way we can at least stop him sooner. I carry a "tactical flashlight", which is only 5 inches long, but is so bright a person cannot see when it is shined at their eyes. These little lights make it very hard for the attacker to see, and imagine if there were more than one person shinning these lights in his face. Then while the attacker is blinded you can run, or attack him, and take him out. This light is so bright you don't even want to have it shined at you while you have your eyes closed. Women should consider this because if someone comes at you, you can blind them from a good distance away. These lights are not expensive, mine cost under $70 and is 320 Lumens. Look them up, I think this would be a good way to have at least some protection, and they are easy to carry. I wear mine on my belt. These are not the little toy type LED lights. The one I use is a "Surefire" brand.

   Tulsa  Excellent idea. Thank you. I'll spread the word.

Our alarm man suggests to those who don't own firearms, a can of wasp spray as it shoots 15+/- feet. An attacker (more than one ) could easily be temporarily blinded, which provides extra time to get to firearms if necessary. I loved that idea. ...it's like long distance mace.

   Safetydude  FYI Tulsa,

You better not use wasp spray. It's a federally regulated insecticide and if used on a person you may incur federal penalties.

   Fireball27  Please check these lights out. Try the closed eye test yourself. These make great gifts and I think everyone should have one. It's kind of like having a "phaser" from Star Trek. Just point the beam, and the bad guy is unable to continue his attack. Then you hit them with whatever you can find, and make sure it HURTS! You can get these lights at any good sporting goods store, or even Wal-Mart.

   MeiDei  Is the flashlight easy to operate for someone with limited use of his hands, I'm thinking partially paralyzed; they're vulnerable to any attack.
November 15 at 20:26 EST .


   Fireball27  They have a twist cap with a push button also. If you turn the end all the way, the light stays on. You can turn the end most of the way and then the light will come on as long as you hold the button down. Like I said, these are small, and easily held in one hand. Check them out at wwwsurefire.com.

   Fireball27 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Here is a tidbit to let your liberal friends in on this holiday season. The director of the movie "Toy Story" the Christmas favorite, was killed by an ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT drunk driver. In 2007, Bob Clark and his 22 year old son were killed while driving on the Pacific Coast Highway when a drunk driver crossed the center line and hit them head on. This ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT had already been deported twice. He was given just 6 years in prison because of a plea deal.
