    I just think people do not think things through too well sometimes.
    Falling for the hype instead of using common sense. I have a narrow view on certain things.
    If like in this recent cop killing case today. If these dudes get caught. Plus. We know for a fact they did it.
    Then they have lost the right to be treated as a human being. My outlook is they have become mad rabid dogs.
    I shoot rabid mad animals here in the West Texas desert. Sleep well also after doing so.
    That makes more sense to me than banning guns. I feel the same way about Hispanic gang and Biker gang culture also.
    You want to act like a mad dog. Take the consequences. I hate paying taxes on court appeals and life long support sentences.
    But I am not a cuddly type of person when I see wrong done. Our guns protect us from the nasties that would have guns anyway
    even if guns were outlawed. Mexico is proof of that concept. Guns and bullets are illegal there. But.
    My time is past. But my life has been spent around some pretty low life human beings who only understood to leave me alone because of fear. Any sign of weakness and I would have been toast.
    There is nothing like seeing a girl defending her man with a 9mm out of her purse while the douche bags are concentrating on rat packing  the big mean looking biker. All of sudden. Politeness reigns.
    it is not a boiling point issue for me. Just a thought for the day. Plus. I am a strange thinker I guess.

    Australia: Archaeologists Unearth Ruins of Viking Trade Center
      Derby| Archaeologists excavating on the site of some recently discovered ruins on the northern coast of Western Australia, may have just made the greatest find in the history of the country: the remains an 11th century Viking settlement.
    The scientists, associated with the Department of Archaeology of the University of Sydney, were called of the site after some locals discovered what looked like the foundation of an ancient building in July, near Derby.
    The archaeologists, directed by Professor Allison Fletcher, were expecting a site from the early colonial period, but they rapidly realized that they were dealing with something completely different.
    They have unearthed the foundations of three larger buildings which were identified as houses, and two smaller workshops identified as a carpentry, which was also used as a boat repair area, and a smithy, containing a forge and iron slag.
    The type of construction and the items found on the site are very similar to the various Viking colonies discovered in Groenland and Iceland.
    The scientists have also unearthed a total of sixteen tombs, including these warriors who were buried with their weapons and treasure.
    The archaeologists have discovered a large quantity and variety of artefacts on the site, including a few weapons and blacksmithing tools, some bronze and silver jewelry, four ivory combs, a few stone oil lamps, a dozen iron rivets and a bone knitting needle.
    While most of the items seem to be of Norse origin, a few of the items suggest that the inhabitants of the site were either conducting piracy in the region or they were part of an extended maritime trade network.
    Two broken pieces of porcelain, a bronze vessel and a jade ring from China were found in the tomb of one of the women, and some semi-precious stones from India and Sri Lanka were found in the tomb of one of the warriors. This proves that the Vikings had some form of contacts with the Asian continent, but the nature of these contacts remains uncertain.
    This large bronze vessel, found in the tomb if a Norse woman of high status, was manufactured in Southeastern China in the 9th or 10th Century.
    Professor Fletcher believes that the Norsemen could have chosen this site for its natural harbor, the availability of eucalyptus wood and the region’s abundant iron ore.
    It’s a long distance from the site of any known Viking settlement, expedition or raid, however, and it remains unclear how the Norsemen actually reached Australia.
    The Vikings were a seafaring people who raided and traded from their Scandinavian homelands across wide areas of northern and central Europe, as well as Russia, during the late 8th to late 11th centuries.
    Using their advanced seafaring skills and their famous longships, they are known to have created colonies and trading posts throughout the North Atlantic islands, navigating as far as the north-eastern coast of North America.
    The Vikings are also known to have raided North Africa and some Mediterranean islands, but this is the first time that any trace of their presence is found in the Indian Ocean.
