Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default june bugs.

i'm starting to believe these are the stupidest fucking creatures on the planet.



i turn on the back light to let the dog out and they just show up within seconds , flying into shit, spinning on their backs like they're retarded trying to take off.

saw one with a body the size of my thumb, it kept attacking an empty beer can till it was worn out. the bats don't mind them though, every morning i come out and just find the remaining head/thorax portions laying all over.

The only plant they mess with are my eggplants. they take little bites out of the leaves.



Starting to see the lined/striped hissing versions once in awhile.

One hit me in the forehead one evening when I was riding my motorcycle without a face shield. It splattered on my forehead and there was bug pieces all over my face. And it left a big knot on my forehead.

There is a storm sewer on the corner next to my shop. I came in one night and the ground around it was moving. Not cool at all.

If it looks like something is chewing little holes in the leaves and turning them into lace it could be flea beetles, they love eggplant. Give them a good sprinkle of Sevin dust, that will take care of them.

We call them "TumbleTurds" here, because they are dung beetles. Us kids would tie a thread to them and let them fly around on a leash.
