I don’t recall all that much because at that time I was too busy chasing girls and not following politics. Friday and Saturday night cruising the gut in downtown Vancouver. I do remember……….
I picked Jimmy Carter because all some people remember was his lackluster Presidency.
Jimmy Carter was less than effective during his four-year term as president but you need to look at the man, his history, and the things he accomplished after serving as President. Jimmy Carter was a distinguished member of the navy. He actually served under Admiral Rickover who was considered to be the father of the nuclear navy.
President James Earl “Jimmy” Carter graduated from the Naval Academy in 1946 with distinction, after which he was assigned to USS Wyoming (E-AG 17) as an ensign. After completing two years of surface ship duty, Carter applied for submarine duty. He served as executive officer, engineering officer, and electronics repair officer on the submarine SSK-1. When Admiral Hyman G. Rickover (then a captain) started his program to create nuclear-powered submarines, Carter wanted to join the program and was interviewed and selected by Rickover. Carter was promoted to lieutenant and from 3 November 1952 to 1 March 1953, he served on temporary duty with the Naval Reactors Branch, U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, Washington, D.C., to assist “in the design and development of nuclear propulsion plants for naval vessels.” From 1 March to 8 October 1953, Carter was preparing to become the engineering officer for USS Seawolf (SSN-575), one of the first submarines to operate on atomic power. However, when his father died in July 1953 Carter resigned from the Navy and returned to Georgia to manage his family interests. Carter was honorably discharged on 9 October 1953 and transferred to the retired reserve at his request with the rank of lieutenant.
The Seawolf-class submarine Jimmy Carter (SSN-23) is named for the 39th president.
He is the only President to serve that was Submarine-Qualified.
After his term as president he has gone on to fund a great many charities and organizations.

We have already lost so many liberty’s due to the pandemic and if this does not settle down anytime soon Trump will likely declare national martial law and roll out the military to enforce it. There go even more freedom’s. I will bet you that over 50% of those out there rioting do not even know why they are there. They are just along for the thrill of it and a chance to destroy something.
People are prepping for Armageddon. First toilet paper and sanitizing products, rice, flour, potato’s, and now meat. Try and get a chest freezer….on back-order until October. Something else being stockpiled right now is ammunition. There is a national shortage on all popular ammunition. I was at Sportsman’s Warehouse today and 99% of popular ammo was gone. Only a little of really expensive ammo was to be had.
Two or three more replies and I will explain where I am going with this.
Whose nest? Don’t be shy. Speak up!
Lets try something……..
I will pick a person and if you want to, describe that person in 100 words or less.
That person is Jimmy Carter

A great president once said…..
“If we ever forget that we’re one nation under god, then we will be a nation gone under”

I think Don Henley hit the nail on the head…..the media is all about “Dirty Laundry”. You will hear about firearms in the news but only when a criminal uses one to commit an atrocity but never about a person licensed to to legally carry a firearm prevents a criminal from committing an atrocity.
Have you ever heard of the Epoch Times? I think I am going to subscribe to it. For now they claim no affiliations and report what other media won’t. Sounds interesting.
Just to be clear, this thread is not about firearms or the 2nd amendment, it is about the media choosing not to report about these particular facts. What other issues do you see that just plain get ignored?April 16, 2020 at 10:49 pm in reply to: The economic fallout will be nothing like we’ve ever experienced #45828October 4, 2016 at 9:39 pm in reply to: Besides Donald and Hillary is there anything else being discussed in here? #23607October 3, 2016 at 6:00 pm in reply to: Besides Donald and Hillary is there anything else being discussed in here? #23584
No worries, I just ignore all that stuff…….but it dominates this part of the site.

Two grand babies now and third one coming soon.
I was thinking about the good old days in here and decided to check in but I see that the reason I disappeared for a long time is still ever present.
For some reason A vision of grown men on computers living in their mothers basement comes to mind when I read some of these posts.
