Capt. Michaels posted a link to a press release whereby Texas Governor sent a letter to President Obama stating that he refuses to accept any refugees from Syria.
Here is an excerpt:
“Given the tragic attacks in Paris and the threats we have already seen, Texas cannot participate in any program that will result in Syrian refugees – any one of whom could be connected to terrorism – being resettled in Texas,” Governor Abbott said in the letter. “Effective today, I am directing the Texas Health & Human Services Commission’s Refugee Resettlement Program to not participate in the resettlement of any Syrian refugees in the State of Texas. And I urge you, as President, to halt your plans to allow Syrians to be resettled anywhere in the United States.”
“Neither you nor any federal official can guarantee that Syrian refugees will not be part of any terroristic activity,” Governor Abbott continued. “As such, opening our door to them irresponsibly exposes our fellow Americans to unacceptable peril.”
This is leadership.

What in the hell has this world come to? There is a new Barbie commercial which has a boy playing with Barbie. Yup- just saw it I swear. I just saw a pig fly by. Holy crap.

With my luck the price will change by the time you see this: Amazon has a couple of great deals going on for a very limited time:
The Kindle Fire HD 10 tablet has a reduced price of $199.99. This is a great price for such a capable and large tablet. Regular price is $229.99 which is a great price as well. Someone Christmas morning would be very happy(including me!).
Also the PNY 32 gb microSD card is on sale for $9.99 with free shipping on orders over $35 or to Prime members. A ton of storage space for $10.
Like I said these prices can change at any time.

Anyone have any experience with the Remington 783 bolt action? I have been looking at the Ruger All AMerican but recently saw the Rem 783 and really liked it. It was $329 with a scope. I would likely install a decent Nikon(around $200)
