MJL - I'll have you know that my supplier buys old barrels from distilleries (or was it turpentine makers?) and ages his 'shine in them for 9 months before he sells it. He also puts in chopped up 'bacca leaves, gunpowder and flat Cocola to add a bit of color and give it a mellow taste....and he does filter it before he puts it in plastic milk jugs.

And speaking of good cigars.....................???

Save it for the political forum, Ben. The internet traces it's ancestry to Department of Defense network computers that were in use at about the time Al Gore's assigned bodyguard was escorting him around Vietnam for the few months he was there.

Others, more knowledgeable than you, claim otherwise:


Internet pioneers Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn wrote a 2000-09-29 article (originally sent via email) which described Gore's contributions to the Internet since the 1970s, including his work on the Gore Bill:[20]
“ [A]s the two people who designed the basic architecture and the core protocols that make the Internet work, we would like to acknowledge VP Gore's contributions as a Congressman, Senator and as Vice President. No other elected official, to our knowledge, has made a greater contribution over a longer period of time. Last year the Vice President made a straightforward statement on his role. He said: "During my service in the United States Congress I took the initiative in creating the Internet." We don't think, as some people have argued, that Gore intended to claim he "invented" the Internet. Moreover, there is no question in our minds that while serving as Senator, Gore's initiatives had a significant and beneficial effect on the still-evolving Internet. The fact of the matter is that Gore was talking about and promoting the Internet long before most people were listening. We feel it is timely to offer our perspective. As far back as the 1970s Congressman Gore promoted the idea of high speed telecommunications as an engine for both economic growth and the improvement of our educational system. He was the first elected official to grasp the potential of computer communications to have a broader impact than just improving the conduct of science and scholarship. Though easily forgotten, now, at the time this was an unproven and controversial concept

Oh my God, the Dem/Lib Socialists have infiltrated GunBoards.com!!! Next thing you know, they'll be telling us that Bill Clinton did not have sex with "...that woman", Ronald Reagan caused AIDS and Rush Limbaugh is the reason we have global warming.

Nah, Ben Gunn has been on the forums for quite some time. He used to hang out on the grumpy old men forum and spar with...well, everybody. Right at about the time Bush won in 2000, he stopped going there.

I suppose we can give Gore his props for supporting legislation that ushered in aspects of our telecommunications industry. We'd also have to give Reagan and the first Bush similar props too for also ushering in the Information Age. Even people who write about Gore's work as a Senator in this mention his close bi-partisan work with officials in both of those administrations who also saw the writing on the wall.

Indeed, Reagan's economic policies are routinely criticised by because they didn't bring back the old post-war manufacturing economy blue collar union types wanted. "General Motors' America". But Reagan, and perhaps Gore too, knew that those days weren't coming back.

So...guys. I just bought this kickass tactical laser/light combo for my Glock 22 called a Streamlight TLR-2.

Anybody else try one of these?

I stopped posting on that forum over censorship issues: my posts were being altered and deleted by Moderators. When the game is crooked, move on.

Republicans have always been insufferably smug, usually with very little reason.

They currently have something to be very smug about. They've made the concept 'cannon fodder' respectable. It's latest manifestation is called 'supporting the troops'.
