I was walking along, smoking a cigarette. Some guy came up to me and asked if I had a smoke. I said no. He didn't take kindly to this, so the idiot grabbed my arm. Surprised, I turned and knocked his arm away. This really seemed to upset him. I went into combat mode. As he started to swing on me, my right hand was already taking a position in front of my face. His fist met my palm, which held onto it. I immediately grabbed his wrist with my left hand, bringing his elbow against my ribs, up near my armpit. I pivoted to my right with everything I had, and the guys elbow bent in a way nature never intended. Fight over. I think it lasted 5 seconds or less. Now, I'm no tough guy. This is a little maneuver that I have practiced many times. I'm not that fast either. I'm not sure what clued me to the fact that he was about to swing on me. Must have been something subliminal. This just goes to show that a little preparation can go a long way in a violent encounter. Don't be a victim.

IN THE 60'S WE LOST OUR INNOCENCE. "Us" by Paul Genova
(Mr. Paul Genova has been President and Chief Operating Officer of Wireless Telecom Group Inc. since June 30, 2016).
I haven't said too much about this election since the start....but this is how I feel....
I'm noticing that some folks aren't graciously accepting the fact that their candidate lost.
In fact you seem to be posting even more hateful things about those of us who voted for Trump.
Some of you are apparently "triggered" because you are posting how "sick" you feel about the results.
How did this happen you ask? Well here is how it happened!
You created "us" when you attacked our freedom of speech.
You created "us" when you attacked our right to bear arms.
You created "us" when you attacked our Christian beliefs.
You created "us" when you constantly referred to us as racists.
You created "us" when you constantly called us xenophobic.
You created "us" when you told us to get on board or get out of the way.
You created "us" when you attacked our flag.
You created "us" when you took God out of our schools.
You created "us" when you confused women's rights with feminism.
You created "us" when you began to emasculate men.
You created "us" when you decided to make our children soft.
You created "us" when you decided to vote for progressive ideals.
You created "us" when you attacked our way of life.
You created "us" when you decided to let our government get out of control.
You created "us" the silent majority.
You created "us" when you began murdering innocent law enforcement officers.
You created "us" when you lied and said we could keep our insurance plans and our doctors.
You created "us" when you allowed our jobs to continue to leave our country.
You created "us" when you took a knee, or stayed seated or didn't remove your hat during our National Anthem.
You created "us" when you forced us to buy health care and then financially penalized us for not participating.
And we became fed up and we pushed back and spoke up. And we did it with ballots, not bullets. With ballots, not riots. With ballots, not looting. With ballots, not blocking traffic. With ballots, not fires, except the one you started inside of "us".
"YOU" created "US".

Thank you! You brought to the forefront valid issues that needed to be pointed out.
I just wonder if folks fear for their gun ownership rights, would be as frenzied, if there were no NRA? There has never been a single piece of legislation proposed that would eliminate gun ownership, not from any lawmaker from any party, yet, every piece of legislation designed to keep legal firearms out of the hands of illegal people - has been met with a frenzy of NRA propaganda - and led to markedly increased gun sales - and NRA income.
It's becoming pretty clear that all threats of gun reductions or limitations, are manufactured, false flag events - to increase gun sales and NRA income.
We're being played here folks.

Do some research on the actions and proposals made by Diane Feinstein.
No American should take delight in the demise of any elected President. The political, social, and diplomatic upheaval that would occur from such an event would add yet another hazardous layer to an increasingly destabilizing world. Those that remember the Nixon shaming will recall the sense of loss of the value of the American character felt by all and yet what are we to think of this person who seems to have such low impulse control when it comes to something as simple as his cell phone? In his favor are some very serious and competent cabinet members who seem to be able to get on with the business of state in spite of the erratic nonsense being trafficked out of the Oval Office. Will they be enough to offset the Presidential recklessness and bring some common sense and gravitas to the stage? One can only hope so for all our sakes...
From the Wall Street Journal:
President Trump is clinging to his wiretapping claim “like a drunk to an empty gin bottle,” the Wall Street Journal said in a scathing editorial published Tuesday night. And that claim, floating in the president’s “seemingly endless stream of exaggerations, evidence-free accusations, implausible denials and other falsehoods,” is severely damaging his credibility, both at home and abroad. “If President Trump announces that North Korea launched a missile that landed within 100 miles of Hawaii, would most Americans believe him? Would the rest of the world? We’re not sure,” the paper said. The Journal slammed Trump’s evidence-free assertion that former President Barack Obama ordered the wiretapping of Trump Tower before the 2016 presidential election. Trump leveled his explosive charge on Twitter on March 4, and the White House has refused to back down, even after FBI Director James Comey dismissed the allegation as unfounded. “He has offered no evidence for his claim, and a parade of intelligence officials, senior Republicans and Democrats have since said they have seen no such evidence,” the paper’s editorial board wrote. The president has plenty of media critics, and the Journal’s editorial board was not particularly supportive of his candidacy. But the editorial is striking, given the paper’s traditionally conservative tone. Its owner, Rupert Murdoch, also owns Fox News, Trump’s favorite cable news network. “Two months into his presidency, Gallup has Mr. Trump’s approval rating at 39 percent,” the editorial continued. “No doubt Mr. Trump considers that fake news, but if he doesn’t show more respect for the truth, most Americans may conclude he’s a fake President.” The paper also pointed out how Trump’s refusal to back off his evidence-free claim has co-opted what could have been a positive news cycle. “This week should be dominated by the smooth political sailing for Mr. Trump’s Supreme Court nominee and the progress of health-care reform on Capitol Hill,” the editorial said. “These are historic events, and success will show he can deliver on his promises. But instead, the week has been dominated by the news that he was repudiated by his own FBI director.”

I guess you have not seen the latest report on info gathering on Trump and his associates.
I did but the post by the right wing insults somehow got deleted by Admin it's you whiny little hypo rats that insult and when you get it back you children run to Admin. It's just like the orange haired lunitic the press is always picking on him
Try again. This time answer the question: why did YOU get bounced? If the Admin deleted the "right wing insults" they obviously saw them and decided they weren't as offensive as your posts.
And why do you insult the President of the United States . . . he has nothing to do with our "discussion".
Actions such as these suggest some sort of mental illness.
I did and all I did was respond to the the right wing insults if you go back you will see there are a few people on OPP that threaten me insulted me but most of all they insulted a family member that had an incurable kidney disease and could not get medical insurance at any cost until the ACA and they insulted him and not being afraid of these gutless people I responded in the nastest way I could. But these right wing Trump loving extremist could give a damn about anybody but themselves, there guns, and there religion. You have to understand stand they wanted my son to die and they said so on many occasion but right wing people could care less they just think about themselves. They accused me of lying about his desease . And don't forget my son recieved zero government subsidies but they just continued with there nasty insults. So sit back and just think for one minute I know it's hard for right wing Trump loves that have the attention span of a nat but if someone wanted you're kid to die what would you do. I spent a long time working with Admin and explaining about some of these right wing extremist and apparently they understood.
