Dude, you’ve spent thousands on guns and PMs. Don’t even TRY to say you don’t have $70 for a printer.

Bullshit. Get your ass onto the BestBuy website and buy one.
I went to the office depot downtown. They had 8 printers only, and the cheapest one was $300. Nobody has made or shipped electronics to conus since early March. They also had No computers on display either. I plan to have the office manager do it monday or tuesday, then mail it in. She hunts elk with a 308 by the way.

At least I am getting into the zone for dealing with these little S$%^^heads. Dennis, I use a printer maybe,maybe twice a year at most. I use the library computers/printers, or have the apartment manager do it. No big deal, and saves me a fortune.
Well, it is called learn. I went to document mart and they don't print off of outside web pages. Next, I went to Office Depot and they do. So then the learning process starts, and I figure out how to link the Multnomah County webpage that has the application form on it, as an attachment to my gmail. Then, I send that to the Office Depot email, and finally they then print it out, physical hard copy, and I buy it. It is a convoluted way to do it, but it costs 65 cents versus the cheapest printer they have left at $99.
I take them back to my apartment, fill it out, get the envelopes ready, stamp, etc. and am good to go.
Finally, I repeat the process with the educational certificate that I will send in along with the handgun permit application.

Now, all I have left to do is fix it so I do a renewal and not a new application. I also emailed and called the tech I mentioned on Saturday night.

I filed online with the visa prepaid card, for a new permit, which he said he will void. This is why I printed everything out, and sent a check for $50, which is now besides the $55 visa charge.

At any rate, the process has turned out to be more complex than I first thought it would be. If it wasn't for Corona Chan I would just go to the sherriff's office and be done with it this afternoon.

Actually, I am seriously thinking of just starting to carry today and the hell with this bull shit.

City Pays Antifa Militant Who Praises Cop Killers for Taking Rubber Bullet During Violent Protest



A renowned Antifa militant who publicly celebrates attacks on law enforcement is getting a cash settlement from a big U.S. city after claiming in a federal lawsuit that his civil rights were violated during a violent protest with his fellow extremists. The incident occurred in August 2018 when hundreds of radical leftists, including masked Antifa militants, confronted police and conservatives in downtown Portland, Oregon. Rowdy demonstrators used pepper spray against police and threw fireworks, bottles, rocks and ball bearings, according to a local news report. Videos of police in riot gear are embedded in the story, which says that protestors were armed with knives, traded blows and drew blood.


Among the rioters was a 31-year-old Antifa leader named James Mathew Mattox who praises cop killers on social media. Mattox was dressed in black bloc and a mask during the event and carried a shield with an anarchist symbol. Mattox provoked officers when they tried to disperse rioters by flipping them off, waving his shield and arms in the air and yelling profanities. When an officer shot a rubber bullet, Mattox taunted him for missing his left thigh before a second rubber bullet hit him in the right arm. This caused a “large gash,” according to his federal court complaint which includes other Portland-area Antifa rioters as plaintiffs. Mattox and his radical pals allege their civil rights were violated and he claims he suffered sharp pain, insomnia and limitations in functioning and movement for weeks. He was unable to return to work for over a week due to the seriousness of his injuries, according to the lawsuit. “In addition to the financial costs of having his injuries treated and missing work, Mr. Mattox suffered from the physical and emotional pain of having been subjected to extreme police violence,” the complaint states. “Mr. Mattox experienced depression and the lasting effects of trauma from extreme police violence.”


This month the Portland City Council agreed to pay Mattox $23,000 to settle the case while a conservative journalist uncovered disturbing social media posts written by the Antifa activist. Using the alias of a prominent Communist Party member (Jack Johnstone), Mattox’s social media outbursts express support for terrorist attacks on law enforcement. He specifically names three renowned cop killers— Christopher Jordan Dorner, Micah Xavier Johnson and Gavin Eugene Long—as his “personal heroes.” In 2013 Dorner killed four police officers and injured three in southern California. Johnson, a member of the New Black Panther Party, killed five Dallas cops at a Black Lives Matter protest in 2016. That same year, Long, a black separatist, killed three police officers and shot three others in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Nevertheless, in his lawsuit against the city of Portland and its police department Mattox asserts that he “posed no threat of violence,” despite his documented history of glorifying it against law enforcement officers. It is also worth mentioning that various news reports have confirmed Mattox has been arrested several times during violent Antifa protests in Portland. Now taxpayers in the city of about 655,000 are being forced to give him money because elected officials will not stand up to him.


Antifa protests are notoriously violent and can cause lots of damage in the cities targeted by the movement. During President Donald Trump’s inauguration in 2017, Antifa militants broke store windows, set a limousine on fire and caused thousands of dollars in damage to businesses in downtown Washington D.C. Hundreds were charged with felony rioting. Counterterrorism experts at the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are increasingly concerned about violence perpetrated by Antifa supporters at public rallies where they confront their ideological opponents, the Congressional Research Service writes in a 2018 report. In Congressional testimony a few years ago, FBI Director Christopher Wray revealed that the agency was pursuing a number of anarchist extremist investigations in which the subjects are motivated to commit violent criminal activity based on Antifa ideology.


Judicial Watch has successfully gone after one of the movement’s most popular figures, a national organizer for a radical leftist group called By Any Means Necessary (BAMN) which was founded by the Marxist Revolutionary Workers League and uses raucous militant tactics to disrupt conservative speaking engagements. Among its prominent figures is a California public school teacher, Yvette Felarca, well known for her violent Antifa activism. In 2016 the educator and two of her radical pals were arrested and charged with several crimes, including felony assault, for inciting a riot in Sacramento. Felarca was captured on video calling a man a Nazi and punching him in the stomach repeatedly while shouting obscenities at him. More than a dozen people were injured in the riot, at least 10 with stab wounds, and the capitol grounds suffered thousands of dollars in property damage. In 2017 Judicial Watch filed a California Public Records Act request seeking records about Felarca’s Antifa activism and its effect on the Berkeley Unified School District that employs her. She sued to stop the school district from furnishing the records and a federal judge determined that it was an entirely frivolous lawsuit and ordered her to pay Judicial Watch’s legal fees.

Um, that is nothing. The local ACLU is filing a MULTI MILLION dollar lawsuit against Portland Police for a laundry list of beating up journalists, antifa types, shooting tear gas at them, etc etc The fact that Antifa regularly beats up innocent people, or engages in mass attacks, rioting, looting and criminal behavior is ignored by the ACLU etc etc

The real irony is Portland's fiscal year ends on June 30th, they are looking at massive budget cuts based on reduced tax revenue much of which is caused by the 23 million in damage done by Antifa who is now suing the city they trashed.

I got to tell you people that starve the beast is a valid strategy. The one thing above all else that will finally bring this evil society to judgment is a lack of money to fund the endless social programs. If you think the riots we have seen the last month are anything, you just wait till October when the forebearance expires.

Again, the push will be to convert RENT, MORTGAGE DEFERRALS INTO PERMANENT GRANTS THAT WILL NOT HAVE TO BE PAID. THIS IS WHAT WILL CAUSE THE RIOTS, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT IS COMBINED WITH REPARATIONS FOR BLACKS.

THE USA IS GOING TO FINALLY GO BELLY UP. NO MONEY.

I abandoned INK JET printers for that reason. Switched to laser. Been happy ever since.
I got one of these about 6 months ago, its a laser but only black and white, no color, the black ink refill is around $40 but it last forever, just put my second one in and we use it fequently with kids in school, it has wifi connection, easily best printer I've owned, it cost $129, a steal for those in need of dependable printing.

I have spent about $10 for printing in the last year. Maybe $20 if you figure in gas getting from here to there

I couldn't find one.

Finally bought an HP laser printer. It was about 100bux. Toner cartridges are about 50.

No real need for color. If it comes up, I'll go have it printed.

Bad thing is, right now, printers are on the same boat that freezers are on...coming from the chicoms.

If they are the ones with the built in print head (ink nozzles), then maybe. You can try using a folded paper towel that has been wet with warm water and a little vinegar. Rub that back and forth over the gold film covered nozzles and it should open up the ink jet nozzles.

If you have the ones with the separate printhead and separate ink holders, and you can get to the prinithead, you can do the same thing with the wet paper towel. If you can't get to it, then there is no easy way to fix it.

Mock humping the deer (back a page or so) wasn't enough.

Now they went after the elk.

The city of Portland paid $10,000 each to overhaul each statue. I will have to check on the teddy rooseveldt and lincoln statues
On the park blocks 4 blocks south of me. There is also Shemanski park where a Jewish immigrant put up a statue of Rebecca bringing water from the well out of the Old Testament.
