  1. Here's a couple pictures of good citizens standing up and protecting a police officer who was separated from the rest of the squad. Not everyone who protests police brutality is there to hurt people and destroy things. Property is replaceable, People are not. They are not equal, nor should they be viewed that way.

  2. You’d make a great politician Mac! You managed to jump in here and within minutes simultaneously agree and disagree with everyone here. Good solid on the fence answer man!

  3. Slim, In your initial post you asked, "How can people use anything for an excuse to riot, loot and burn down property that had nothing to do with anything?" In my experience people don't generally riot when their utility rates increase, or when their neighbor has a bbq and does not invite them to the party, or even when politicians are caught with their hand in the cookie jar.... This murder is an affront to the decency of all who have seen the video. Way past anything. It seems most of the posts have acknowledged the truth of each others position, the cop who kneeled for se

  4. It would be one thing if you had a thick enough skin to see these topics through to the end. But no, you start them and then tattle when you don’t like others responses. That’s the equivalent of the little kid in school who loves playing the game when he’s winning but as soon as he’s behind he starts throwing a tantrum and doesn’t want to play anymore and says everyone else is cheating.

  5. Again, I don't think anyone thinks looting is justified. Nor is anyone trying to justify it. Everyone knows it is wrong. And everyone knows what these officers did was wrong too.

  6. I'm pretty sure that mining operation is one of the Custom Landscape Materials quarries. They sell boulders and decorative rock through their retail division West Valley Rock. I've bought several tons of gravel from them through the years. They buy the rock material from the BLM and pay them for the tonnage and type of rock they remove. They've been mining there since 2005 or so. You can see how much they mine and what they pay for it on the BLM Serial Register page for the material sale. As you can see there they put in a well. The guards/gates are to protect their considerable investmen

  7. How did i know this was going to turn out to be one of those ridiculous argument posts? Jeez. I agree that debating on everyone's different opinions is a good thing, but it always goes overboard because some people think their opinion is the only one that matters. My opinion is: It was murder and that guy needs the highest discipline there is. As far as the riots and looting, just plain stupid!! Destroying and burning down your own neighborhood is quite dumb. You get to live there when its all done.

  8. I guess I must be stupid too then. Personally, I never did see the cause and effect relationship/justification between being outraged about police misconduct and violence against innocent people, and unrestrained looting and arson. Lots of minority owned businesses get destroyed as well. Much of it done by outside instigators and ANTIFA terrorist types bent on creating chaos, violent societal revolution, and race wars.

  9. I agree. It looks like murder to a whole lot of people. And it looks like those other cops standing there are at the very least accessories to murder.

  10. There is more to this than meets the eye. The cop and the guy he was killing both worked as bouncers for the same club for years just two blocks from the Third Precinct building. I don't know all the facts but the more I do understand the more it looks like bad blood and murder.

  11. Well that’s what your post comes across as. Nothing more than a poorly concealed plot to stir up some $&@* and have someone else step in it so you can point the finger at them and act innocent.

  12. When authority is abusive and out of control the population lashes out. The Boston Tea Party is a great example. The destruction of the Berlin Wall. The riots in Hong Kong. It is not a difficult concept and there are many examples throughout history. When people feel they are being oppressed they tend to lash out by destroying property and breaking laws. Now can you explain how a person's race indicates their actions are not racist?

  15. This is really good news if you ask me, but "push back"??? The perps in Minnesota and every other state should be rounded up and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. bob thinks this is funny. Minnesota's governor said Saturday the state is using “intelligence support” from the U.S. military and the National Security Agency to push back against the alleged organizers of riots that have occurred in the state in response to the death of George Floyd. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/minnesota-intelligence-support-nsa-riots

  16. So then you agree with Colin Kaepernick? His peaceful protest was supposed to bring attention to this very subject. Until it was politicized, and every 'patriot' made it about something else.

  17. Well I could be wrong too Slim, I don’t read every post on here and I’m just going off the few controversial topics I’ve read lately. In any case, I don’t want it to seem like I’m discouraging reasonable conversation or civil discussion by my reactions. If I gave that impression to anyone I apologize. So thanks for the post and for your view point Slim.

  18. "Property is replaceable, People are not. They are not equal, nor should they be viewed that way" I agree. Nor should either be destroyed with impunity or callous disregard for the law.

  19. Wow Chris! Anybody that knows me at all, knows that I am anything but a fence sitter. IMO, I call them like I see them, but I certainly don't feel like it has to be a totally one sided, agree or disagree matter, as in picking sides between the cops or the criminals. In this case, I condemn both because individual behavior requires individual accountability.

  20. To answer both Clay & Dave , Yes I found the page and Clay is 100% right as usual! That is the tight spot and may I point out that the picture is dtd 2013 & I was out there the last time late 2012. At that time there were no fancy trucks hauling , just the average contract hauler. No info from the gate tender. Only sign was to the effect of saying for admitince call ####### .Too many HUGE machines running around for me in a Geo Tracker even on the road back to the main road , after you pass the rock pit road the only limit is the vechile you are using and the wilderness areas.

  21. I do. 1 Caliche Chris reacted to this "I do." Chris, this is your reaction to Bob's response . . . ?? High five as well seems to me, and why not? Not even close Mac, I rarely say anything on here, the person I called out has a history of doing it repeatedly. You found one post where I laughed at a response someone made and you think it’s similar to consistently ignoring or writing off any response that doesn’t agree with me? Apples and or

  23. The whole thing makes everyone sick. This is one isolated case in Minneapolis. For all we know, all the officers in that precinct knew George Floyd and had it in for him. Maybe none did. I certainly agree that any of them who knew what Chauven was doing with his knee should have known it could be fatal and should have stepped in. The bottom line is George Floyd is dead and his killer(s) face charges but the chaos and anarchy that continues is a crime in progress. We (MOST Americans) surely agree that the chaos and anarchy must end. I say MOST Americans because the agitators will continue u

  24. Yeah, Chris, I feel your pain, but IMO, that goes on across the board on more than one side. It's competitive differences of opinion among members. And some posts are obviously more provocative and controversial than others, I agree. But many here on the forum find it to be a stimulating diversion compared to crickets, and the Admin allows it, (up to a point)

  25. I’d like to ad that I have no I’ll will toward you Slim or mean you any disrespect. I feel I owe you a certain amount of respect just because of the amount of time on this planet you’ve had compared to mine. That being said some of your inflammatory posts and the way you reply and speak to people does become very tiresome. What I mean by that is that your posts seem less like discussions and more like places where you post your opinion and high five anyone who agrees with you and ignore the people who don’t. That’s not a discussion

  26. seriously Slim, you complain more than anyone, as far as I know, when topics start to stray into politics or something that you don’t agree with. Then you make a post like this trying to make it seem your looking for an intelligent conversation when you know exactly where it’s headed. you’ll even help nudge a few loose rocks down the hill to help the land slide get started. You need a new hobby man this one is getting old.

  27. Excuse me Slim. But IMHO Chris paraphrases it pretty well. You say you don't get it. You ask for opinions. And if they disagree with yours you get hurt and want to argue. You posted this thread to start crap. You got it. Now you will play the victim. It is just you doing what you do.

  28. Cops who kill men by kneeling on their neck while they beg for their lives should be executed. The cops who do nothing and facilitate the murder should do hard time in State prisons in GP. Looters and arsonists should be held accountable for their actions too.

  31. Slim what about the Asian cop who was more concerned with looking tough and proving that he wouldn’t flinch than he was with checking to see if what all those people were screaming was true? I don’t know how you complain about other people stirring the pot so much and then make a post like this. “Gee I don’t know what would make these people so mad they would loot can you guys please explain it to me?” Despite your best efforts I don’t think anybody here believes your that stupid.

  36. Right spot wrong map. You are showing the mining claims map. Try using the Arizona Land Status Map I linked to in my previous post. That's the same sales site I posted Dave. Material sales are not mining claims. You can't locate a mining claim for sand, gravel or boulders - you have to purchase the material from the U.S. and pay for what you extract. Just go to the same spot on the Arizona Land Status Map map, turn on the information tool and click on the map. You will get a listing of all the land status information including links to the Serial Register page for that material sale

  41. You bet. There is fossil placer gold in sandstone near Sena New Mexico. Even a couple shafts driven along a rusty streak in the Glorieta formation. I have panned it myself. The gold is dusty fine and you have to beat the sandstone to dust to free it. But it is there. There is probably placer in the fields just below the formation. But it is all private farmland along the Pecos River. There is gold in the sandstone below Caballo Dam near Arrey, New Mexico as well. Derived from the gravels on the west side of the Caballos. There is no visible workings but lots of guys pan the

I'm not sure which staff member locked this topic or why but I'm checking into that, when a staff member locks a topic they're suppose to post a reason in the topic or at the very least in our Moderator's forum so all staff members knows why, that didn't happen, so in the meantime I have unlocked this topic..for now until I find out why it was locked, if I hear a good enough reason it may be locked again.

  43. Why not? It would probably be better than some of the stuff they have on TV now. I am watching Bering Sea Gold right now and it seems to be popular but I can't relate to it. It has been 30 years since I visited Nome and it was only for a few hours on a MedEvac so it sure looks different , the houses are painted for one thing and the only gold dredge operation then was a large ship a way off shore that I saw If you could use one of those smaller rigs in the Salmon you might do well but the powers that be would never allow it now days.

  44. Dave, It's gasoline, 1 Cylinder like my grandmothers old GRAY-BAR winger washer, kick start, chain drive, wooden steering wheel , gravity dump, front wheel steering , it would have took a strong man to drive that thing, the driver sat on top of the engine and gas tank! OSHA was not around in those days! It had a brass plate on the front of the engine/seat compartment but the picture I took of it was one of those I lost.

  45. Thanks for checking on it Dave ! I won't say that I've never high graded some mining company's dump before but I sure would not tackle this one! Who ever did had to walk a long way and I have noticed that it is lighted at night when I have passed coming back from the Eagle Tails . I agree that its odd and that a truck driver on his first day hauling didn't know what and who and where . Everyone has their right to privacy though. But I would bet that Clay could find out They don't have to worry about me, it's hard to push a walker through the desert.

  46. Whenever that happens the savages come out at night. The cowards will finally wear face masks and loot an burn what they can or can't get. When I was a kid the law was allowed to shoot looters and arsonists. I wonder just what happened to allow all this to happen. People are still people...…….. Old Tom
