    not quite sure what to think on latest headlines this week of.

    President Trump showed up in Afghanistan on Thursday for a surprise Thanksgiving visit with troops engaged in America's longest-ever military conflict. Mr. Trump arrived at Bagram Air Field shortly after 8:30 p.m. local time and spent more than two-and-a-half hours on the ground, speaking to troops and meeting with Afghanistan's president.
    from cbs news.

    but if he did spend the holiday with the troops then I salute that 🙂

    Thanks for the link.
    Seems unusually neutral report from CBS. A break from typically hostile propaganda representing corrupt liberal politicians and arrogant big corporations controlling mass media in USA…

    Headlines like this, you mean?

    Virginia to Outlaw Kickboxing, Tai Chi, Firearms Instruction and Self-defense Training

    The State of Virginia is proposing a new 2020 law known as SB64 (see link here) which will be taken up by the Senate beginning January 8, 2020.

    The law would instantly transform all martial arts instructors into criminal felons. This includes instructors who teach kickboxing, BJJ, Krav Maga, boxing and even Capoeira.

    It would also criminalize all firearms training classes, including concealed carry classes.

    It would even criminalize a father teaching his own son how to use a hunting rifle.

    Surely that is just so un-American? But I guess we all have to be thankful on Thanksgiving. When I think back to when we used to watch “The Virginian” on our TVs as kids.

    If you want to play with firearms you should volunteer to go to Syria, Iraq, Libya, and guard the oil fields for US oil companies, or go to Afghanistan and protect poppy-fields for US pharmaceuticals (and other dealers).

    The “freedom” of celebrating thanksgiving has a cost you know.

    Wee Donnie has landed over here now. He sure is running up the airmiles. But never fear, Americans just love paying their taxes to finance his travels to play golf. It makes them feel so thankful 🙂

    These biscuits and ,turkey gravy fixing leftovers, are pretty good with eggs this morning.

    Sometimes. Leftovers taste better than fresh.

    Strange things start to happen in Virginia… Democrats along with all large corporations supporting them against core citizens made huge political investments in Virginia. You can see the results in recent elections. Freedoms gradually restricted through senseless regulation follow.

    exactly and ones like the ohio abortion. I posted the Trump one because it was neutral for
    CBS and showed him spending time with the troops as commander in chief on thanksgiving.
