All we can do is make the best of it all folks. It is real good to talk with all of you and share ideas about the unbelievable. Who would have believed the gas prices and what the terrorist are doing in the world today back in 1985. During that oil crunch.
Nobody around here heard of someone saying that killing people would be rewarded with 70 virgins back then. Jihad and all of that HATE energy growing with Islamic power and government control. Harris County, Texas is for the most part now a Police State. But, if it were not, this atmosphere would be similar to Chicago. Urban gangs and real armed warfare.
On the police scanner here you can listen to eruptions of small scale militant action between families and groups of individuals. The police are still in good shape to contain these clashes. You never heard these on the scanner several years ago. A drive by is pretty typical now.
It cost something to maintain a well armed Police force to contain all of this crap. I got to see some of the hardware over at the city of Bellaire PD. They now have patrol long guns which have full automatic capability. What you need if some NUT gets loose around here with an AK and some drum mags.
