unfortunately the liberal approach of throwing money and material goods at problems doesn't solve them...
I saw an interview with this police officer on FOX this morning. He is a dying breed in the "role model" category. I almost always stop and give money to homeless people and tell them to use it for food and not for alcohol or drugs. I hope they listen.
This cop received a special pair of cuff links from NYC Police Commissioner Kelly. God bless Officer Deprimo. We need more people like him on this earth.
For conservative readers, HERE is a list of The Politically Incorrect, 'Inconvenient Truth', on important topics. These books supply an antidote to the distorted, illogical, agenda fabrications that make up PC mythology that are spewed non-stop by the Soros/globalist-orchestrated liberal media, politicians IN BOTH PARTIES, academia, and federal agencies.
Much as I applaud the officers actions.....both he and the store manager stated that he had received a discount because he was a Police Officer. Slippery slope no?
Sadly, this is such a rare thing these days. God bless you, Officer Larry DePrimo, and He will.. of that I'm sure.
Here is another "good cop" video:
You see things like this during the Christmas season and think that there still is some hope for mankind. We need more people like Officer Larry DePrimo.
Thanks for posting this
It's a good news story - I need a break -
Some people are just GOOD people
Officer DePrimo is a great example of compassion and heart
He MUST be a Conservative - I believe most Law Enforcement are anyway
I am from NY - There are good people there - Even NYGINO
We are tough, talk mean, but always willing to extend a helping hand to someone in need Conservatives anyway
God Bless him and this Country
We will need ALL the help we can get!
I miss too !
I need a break from all the bad news
I am so dissapointed
I will pop in from time to time
I really miss all the fun here !!
You all are the BEST!
Hot off my computer. Video #5 The UN. UN Constitutional. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E54W5OcjUkE&feature=youtu.be

Another great piece ABC!
The UN is best exposed by simply comparing two tiny nations. Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Same island. The half called Haiti is controlled for half a century by the UN, and is the example of what happens to a county used as a UN money laundering operation. The Dominican Republic flourishes as a free market.
The UN's ugly tentacles - the groups doing the dirty work, are NGO's. The seemingly biased and selective "civil rights" cases pursued by the ACLU for example can be simply explained by knowing that the ACLU offices are operating as UN NGO's.
Oh, and there is the SPLC: "The SPLC has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for the ostensible purpose of “fighting hate” and helping the poor and powerless, but in reality has stuffed its own coffers, building one of the largest investment portfolios of any NGO in the country."
Hussein is demoralizing and cutting the US military because he knows our professional volunteer military will never were blue helmets - will never turn it s guns on its citizens.
Another great piece by Sowell. Elephants in DC might take note.
A book that could have booted Obama from office was all but ignored. It shouldn't be any longer
"Unlike the Republicans today, John F. Kennedy had an answer when critics tried to portray his tax cut proposal as just a "tax cut for the rich." President Kennedy argued that it was a tax cut for the economy, that changed incentives meant a faster growing economy and that "A rising tide lifts all boats."
If Republicans today cannot seem to come up with their own answer when critics cry out "tax cuts for the rich," maybe they can just go back and read John F. Kennedy's answer.
I saw this first thing this morning. This is what Jesus in action looks like. God Bless this officer, and the man who was touched by him.
I was thinking,'he bought this guy a pair of $100 boots?' Then I got to thinking, this is NYC, you probably can't buy a pair of sandals for under $50 and then that's only if you could get through the 'unionistas' striking in front of Wall Mart.
It's good to see that people are still basically decent, as long as they aren't embroiled in politics.
I have a few links to share today.
First up is Bob Belvedere's post over at TCOTS. I'm curious what you folks think. All I can say for certain at this moment is that I will not be dragged into voting for another "moderate" ever again. If the country goes down, I know I've done my job, and the pro-moderate camp let us down, not me.
Bob Belvedere: GOP Delenda Est – Now Is The Time
Next comes a sad commentary on how the media is pushing everything through a lens of outright Jew hatred. Looks like the Neo-Nazis have won the day, folks.
Tim Blair: COMMUNITY EMBROILED
Finally, I leave you with some tabloid fodder on what happens when "butt" implants go wrong. Nevermind the sad focus on body distortion that seems to affect so many.
For no particular reason at all, the phrase, "nice cans!" comes to mind.
Here is another I took the liberty of re-writing the headline for...
"Jewish Community Embroiled in Charges of Religious Bigotry and Obstruction"
One more, from the Mail (thanks to CBS New York local news), for comic relief.
It's nice to be good with tools. I keep tellin' any young person who'll listen to learn how to weld, but so far it seems to fall on deaf ears.
I looked in to solar, but ran into the same budgetary problems, and I live in Oregon. (cloudy) I built a woodgas generator that runs on wood pellets that will run a 13hp engine all day long. I haven't perfected wood chips or chunks yet, and can't produce my own pellets. That is a pretty good backup power source for my area. I was looking into batteries that I could charge daily with the woodgas power generator. I didn't know about 25 year batteries. I was going to run 12vdc LED lighting and a 3 way refrigerator on the batteries.
I am a single guy with a shop, so I have the time and ability to play with these things. They are a lot of work, but worth it in the end, and kinda fun too.
I need to upload some of my videos to youtube so that I can share what I have done. I have learned a lot from other people, but never put up the product of other peoples knowledge and experiences. Everyone seems to add a little something to other people's designs, and they get better with time. The internet is an awesome thing for the hobbies, and preppers.
Wow, I just searched for "custom iron casting" and was surprised how many folks will do that. I think I'd have to retire to get up to the level of creativity you're at. Few more years, I guess.
We have a backup generator that runs on natural gas, but wells do run out. I'm thinking of adding some solar stuff when the next gen panels come online. It's finally getting reasonable, efficiency-wise. Still a beast, cost-wise, and those 25-year batteries kind of worry me. Looks like about $60k to really get something worth bothering with, but it can be done in stages, and I don't need any contractors to help with it. I'd have to sell some stuff to get that on my budget, though.
I was thinking cast, or fire clay. I think that if I use a sheet metal interior pipe and a steel exterior pipe that is about two inches bigger, then pack it with a clay wire mix, that it would hold up to the temps. Otherwise, a cast interior pipe should work as well and would be less fragile. I am not sure about the sqaure burner tube being stainless though. It seems like it would deteriorate as well. If the square portion of the combustion chamber was removable, and the riser was self supporting, then it would be as big of a deal. If I could actually order a custom made cast square portion of the combustion chamber, that would be awesome. I also thought about making the pan cover more surface area in the sqaure portion, and slightly overlapping the riser in the back. The pan could be the removable and disposable portion. The riser and the pan take the brunt of the heat.
I was also thinking about making a separate mass section to absorb the remaining heat that would hold it for many hours after you shut down the furnace. Rocket "mass" heaters is where I started, then found the oil version. I have lots of wood, if I ever ran out of oil.
Edit: I would expect that the metal interior pipe would go a way, and the clay would be left. The interior pipe, with the clay version, would be sacrificial.
Since this is an open thread, I wanted to tell you about this heater I found on youtube. I am putting together the parts to build one. The guy had a burn chamber failure and gave up on it for now, but I believe that I can make it work.
These royals are corrupt immoral control freaks. Nothing has changed from the old days, except how they present things to the public. They are no better than the UN and the liberal left. They are NWO trash, and now that Britain has abdicated its democratic process to the EU, the people over there are totally screwed. I have been listening to Lord Monkton (good guy) and Nigel Farage for a while now, and they don't hold back. The royals are involved in all kinds of sick, disgusting things.
I can't imagine that William is any different, but who knows. What I have seen is that he pushes the same Agenda 21 type garbage.
Heh. Let's just hope "Wills" is a typical rebellious kid, and thinks his old man is a (literal) royal twit.
