    I had stopped by my "Embroidery Guys" house the other day to have some hats embroidered with the Slappy Racing logo. My embroidery guy is named Tom, Tom Cameron. I've known him for over 15 years, and he has embroidered so many things for me and GD.com. I met him while I was reading a route for work about 15 years ago, and noticed him in his garage running an embroidery machine. I walked on in and asked him if I could use him to do some "One offs" and such. He said sure. Tom was an elderly man, skinny, white hair, wears glasses, rides a street bike, and is very pleasant to talk to. Over the last 15 or so years, I've talked with him considerably about Glamis, the Veterans Ceremony, the Golf Tournament, and many other stories about Glamis over the years. He even came out to Glamis last year for the Golf Tournament, and stayed in his tent just outside my trailer. I offered him to stay in my trailer, but he declined saying, "It's beautiful out here, I'll be ok in the tent." Anyways, back to the story. When I stopped in a couple weeks ago to drop of the hats for the Slappy Racing logo, I noticed that Tom was wearing a Vietnam Veteran hat. I looked at him, puzzled, and said, "Tom, you were in Vietnam?" He replied, "Yes I was." I immediately replied, "Tom, I've known you over 15 years, and I never knew that." My mind was now racing, and I stared at him for a couple seconds, and i was thinking maybe he was stationed stateside or something, no way did this pleasant, soft talking old man walk the jungles in South East Asia. So I asked, "What did you do in Vietnam?" He replied, "I was a field medic for the 1st Infantry Division, assigned to Charlie Company, out of Lai Khe, 25 miles North of Saigon." My jaw dropped. After all these years of talking to him about the Vets Ceremony, my mother and father being Marines, I never had a clue that my friend was a Vietnam Veteran, and one that was deep in the bush. Well, I guess I never asked. Right after that, we talked for a brief 20 minutes about what he did while in Vietnam, and I could've stayed there and listened for hours, but I had to get back to work. I did ask him if he was ok to talk about his time in Vietnam, and that I would love to sit by the fire soon and hear everything, and he said, "Absolutely, and I do have some article write ups, a narrative in a book, and some other things I can give you if you would like." I said, "Absolutely". And before I left, I told him, "YOU HAVE TO COME OUT TO THE VETERAN CEREMONY." He replied, "I will be there." So, Tom Cameron, the soft spoken, gentle man, my embroidery guy, Bronze Star recipient, is a total bad ass, and I never even knew it. Here is some stuff he gave me. That's Tom on the right.

    I wish I could post on here what I really want to tell you guys but some that read this would not believe it and turn this thread into something I would feel the need to defend to keep from giving the wrong impression. I hope these fools keep going the direction they are headed because the disconnect with reality and the underestimation and miscalculation they are making is huge. The social engineering that acedemia, the media and the ruling class elite are trying to push off on the USA is not what Joe Six pack wants. Joe Six pack wants to be left alone, live and let live, but what these people (progressives, pinko’s, communists, etc.) have been emboldened to do is forcing Joe to have to respond. These people have no idea the resolve that red blooded, blue collared, God fearing, liberty loving, Patriots will do when they feel backed into the corner, especially when they have decided they are willing to sacrifice what they have to get what they want for their posterity. Trump is the uninvited guest to the party that was never supposed to be there. Regardless of what you think of him personally he has faced down an enemy like very few have ever imagined let alone seen. The elites are concerned he is going to permanently end their gravy train. Us peasants cannot imagine the power and influence these elites have cultivated and just what they will do to try and keep it. There has never been such a divide between the serfs and the elites in this country. Even the CIvil War was commoners against commoners.. A very small percentage of the population under the right circumstances will change the trajectory of this nation. We have the tools we just need the occasion to come to fruition.

    It is amazing that so many people have watched their kids for the last 20-30 years or more become indoctrinated in schools/colleges with far left leaning ways to act and become molded into good little socialist. Today, those same kids, now young adults are all about free everything, with no regard or understanding that capitalism will always trump socialism. If it wasn't alarming back in 2015/16 that so many young people were willing to sell their soul to B.Sanders, then its really sad that there are now even more support and following for several of these types totally out in the open with their goals to turn our country up side down. Why would anyone in there right mind, go down the road of surrendering freedom for the changes these far left types want to impose? Here we are now, a handful of a few, attempting to turn this country into a gov. controlled state with total control on everything. Mr. Trump... I don't particularly favor his opinions and chatter on social media, I wish he would stop, and carry on with the job without participating in petty bickering. I, being a veteran, appreciates the way this man hit the ground running and has done so much for this country in his 1st year than anybody before. Makes no excuses , and seeks solutions, to fixing problems others have pushed off for someone else to take care of down the road. How can someone criticize someone who finally puts this country 1st for a change? When did it become cool to have the words make America great again hated words? Where is the pride and patriotism like we had 9-12-2001, or when Team USA won hockey gold in 1980? The fact that he lit a fire under the azz of the VA, and those sub-standard performers are no longer protected, and can be fired. Ask a Vietnam Vet how the VA was back then versus now. He gets little credit for persuading companies to return back to the USA, and improve the economy. He gets chastised for re-negotiating bad trade deals, making other countries pay their fair share to NATO, and punking out China for taking advantage of gutless leadership of the past who gave China an open door to screw us all in business for some back door deals., and trying to even the field. The man is doing more for this country, and does it for the love of country. He doesn't need the money. Last but not least... How could we be in a place now, where one party is so hell bent to have open borders, and eliminate ICE? This is unbelievable to believe that a portion of politicians are not willing to safeguard our country from flows of drugs, gangs, sex trafficking minors, disease, and people who choose to disregard legal avenues of immigration. The fiscal impact this all has, and the democrats are willing absorb the cost to the government without loosing a minute of sleep.. How can this not be considered a National emergency? I guess in a way,, Our president could be like the ASA or other entities representing the freedom to use lands for off-roading. In this case, be the only hope from loosing the fight to keep our country free from those trying to turn it into a bad disease.. Just my humble opinion..... I think serving 20-1/2 years in the Marine Corps still affords me that..

    Yesterday I beat my 3 BS ticket from these assclowns. It was a BS saving space ticket because I wouldn't move my truck for some piece of shit that started some shit. Most surprising was how much Ranger Baca lied. I heard a who different story from the one that happened. My friend had the samething happen when he fought a ticket Hermis wrote him. These assclown knowingly write bogus tickets and then have to lie to try and get a conviction. They know most people will just pay rather then take to court so they lie away. They are criminals nothing more. I'm sure I'll be the target of more harrassment now. Any interaction I have will be filmed from now on. I also need to repaint my motorhome and trailer and wear a disguise. It you need some help from Rump Ranger Baca you can call him direct at (760)791-5984

    Now, when something like this happens, it is your responsibility to make sure when you get back to camp that you: drink all their beer, and eat all their food. We don’t want that to go to waste. That’s what a good Duner does. We made sure we did the right thing.

    Really was a bummer to see a friend in pain. Coobie was just back there having some fun and Mother G bite him, happens to the best of us. If something happens to anybody and you have a signal for your google Maps to work you can use the "My Location" feature and share it to the BLM Medics, It will pin point your location and give them the coordinates. The Medics that showed up were some cool dudes that did a great job with Coob. I am glad we stuck around for plan A because plan B was to stick a flag in his butt to mark him and finish our ride!

    Attrition definition: : the act of weakening or exhausting by constant harassment, abuse, or attack. Definition of acquiescence: passive acceptance or submission : the act of acquiescing or the state of being acquiescent https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/03/americas_second_civil_war_has_already_begun.html America's Second Civil War Has Already Begun By William L. Gensert “In an excellent article by Jeff Lukens here on American Thinker, he asks the question, “Is a second civil war coming?” In reply, I say that America’s second civil war has already begun. Its opening shots were fired by Barack Obama when he stated, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” Most of this country is center-right and never considered America a place that needed transformation. Most people can think of things they would change but few believe the nation needs to be torn down and rebuilt. Obama failed but the left soldiers on in its quest for a new America remade in their own image. When Obama went on his world apology tour, he wasn’t apologizing for America, he was apologizing for Americans. This is the essence of this second civil war. Leftists are demi-gods who believe they are America and that anyone who does not believe in them cannot lay legitimate claim to this country as their own. Yes, this war has begun. The opening skirmish was the Obama presidency itself, which history will see as a failure, despite what the media want us to believe in the here and now. Sure, he passed ObamaCare and Dodd-Frank, overregulated, and ruled by executive diktat to great media acclaim. Yet, ObamaCare and Dodd-Frank have been whittled away by legislation and judicial rulings, while Trump has prioritized deregulation and reversed many of Obama’s illegal executive orders. The war’s second battle was the 2016 presidential election when Hillary Clinton, Obama’s chosen successor, lost to a television personality whom very few took seriously as a candidate. Trump won despite the Obama administration conspiring with the Clinton campaign to steal the election and has remained as president even as that conspiracy fundamentally transformed into a failed coup attempt to depose him. Trump’s presidency has been the third battle and with his string of successes, the battle is being won. This, despite near-universal acrimony and condemnation among the media, the Democrats, and the left. But, “what difference, at this point, does it make?” because these victories are pyrrhic. As the eminent Michael Walsh said of the left, “they never stop, they never sleep, they never quit.” Democrats are chipping away at this nation with their policies. This is a war of attrition and we Americans are being attrited. For example, their “open borders” policy is effectively importing a new electorate -- one guaranteed to vote for them. The left agrees with Obama, there is nothing wrong with America, it’s those damn Americans, so they are going to drown the conservative vote with new Democrats. It’s the same with their policy of “everything should be free.” Why vote for someone who promises equal opportunity when someone else promises a better outcome? Nuclear winter became global warming became climate change became “we want total control over everything.” The reason why Democrat candidates for the presidency so quickly signed on to my congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal is its promise of comprehensive control over every aspect of our lives. Eliminating planes, trains, and automobiles will keep us close to our homes and jobs or for those “unwilling to work” in their basement enjoying their “universal basic income.” Dependent people without mobility are easier to control. The 2020 election looms as the next battle and it will be hard fought because Democrats have myriad policies that may sound great but are really about control. They have always been masters of micturating down our leg and telling us it is raining. Yet, they don’t need to trick us into acquiescence, because even should Trump win, without a complete reversal by the Democratic Party, a renewed free and fair media, and a return to the principles upon which this nation was founded, this war will continue, and it is only a matter of time before the left again wins the Presidency, or the House, or the Senate -- or all three. When that happens, this civil war will become hot because the Democrats are going to come for our guns. An armed citizenry is a free citizenry, and they can’t have that. The third most populated nation with 330,000,000 people, America has an estimated 350 million guns in circulation; any effort to seize them will call for the total mobilization of our armed forces, city and state police, and the National Guard. People are not going to turn in their guns and politicians who think they will do so are being naïve. Fighting will surely ensue as the forces of the regime go door to door to try to take them. Many of those empowered to confiscate weapons won’t obey orders. Defections will be common and there will be fighting in the streets, limited at first, but it will soon break out into open rebellion. The regime will become increasingly strident and many states will refuse to comply. Using Democratic-run “sanctuary cities” as an example of state nullification of federal law, talk of secession will become rife. The ruling leftists will, of course, be surprised, and orders will be given to the remaining loyalist forces to put down the rebellion. In the end, the death toll will far exceed the 620,000 people who died in our first civil war. To people who say it can’t happen here, I say history is replete with examples of places that no longer exist where people believed “it can’t happen here.” It can’t happen here? Open your eyes, it has already begun.”

    We got there early so she could set it up. Her dad made the cake stands...I'll I had to do was paint them. After it was set up, we headed to a little bar down the street. Cheryl was ready for a cocktail...she was so stressed about getting everything right. It was fun at the wedding we over heard the table next to us... "This is the best cake I have ever had!" and we heard that from multiple people. Congrats to Sean and April on their wedding...it was a blast.

    California has some of the most amazing mountains valleys and topography in the country. We have some of the coolest roads you could ever lean a motorcycle around and of course Glamis. Everything you found bad is only the tip of the iceberg here and all a result of libtards and thier quest to destroy what was once the greatest state in the nation. It is quickly becoming a 3rd world shithole.

    Hello everybody. I’d like to share with everyone my experience with @chevy5150 He’s done my home loans and refinances for close to ten years. They’ve all gone through without a hiccup and he’s always been spot on with his cost and pricing estimates. This time was a little different. I was in the process of selling a home to relocate my family and remembered he had told me at one point he was a licensed real estate agent. So I asked if he could act as our buyers agent once we were looking for another house. He said yep no problem whatever you need , I’d be happy to help We had a couple changes in plans, destinations, a few other things out of our control and had some interesting interactions with multiple other realtors. I can be a pain in the ass sometimes as well. He stuck with us throughout the entire process and five months later we live in our dream home thanks to him. Our buying destination changed from an hour from his house to 2.5 hrs away. I have experience with other realtors due to buying and selling homes in the past and can definitely say he is great at what he does. He ensured us through the entire process he just wants us to be happy. That goes a long ways for me. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. He is the best in the business. If anybody needs a home loan or a realtor I highly recommend Andrew. 909-964-5348 thanks Keegan Smith

    Why let the government keep your money, claim all you can then put the rest in a account that draws interest, then at tax time just draw out enough to pay your taxes, or move to Texas and keep all of it. DON~~~

    I spent a lot of years in NHRA class drag racing . While a different animal all together than bracket racing the working hand had to constantly chase the guys who just wrote checks out of their business accounts for the newest and best of everything . Not only did the money they brought to the sport elevate the level of the competition it unfortunately made it an unaffordable addiction on the track and in the pits for the after tax guys like myself . As it all changed I finally realized it wasn't fun anymore , It really wasn't ever fun come to think of it . So coming to the sand I saw a lot of comparisons to the drags in there are guys that can work on their stuff , there are workers , there are racers , there are show offs , there are guys who hire cooks and tire changers , there are guys who don't know the difference between a flywheel and a wagon wheel.... But I have experienced ( aside from some complete a holes that exist everywhere in life ) there is general sense of community and love for the dunes within those differences that seems to bond us all in a way that didn't exist at the drag strip .
