Some ways to protect yourself are:
Every union has slugs
It's way worse in NY though
90% of unions are corrupt politicized pieces of shit anyway
They all backed Obamacare so they could gut benefits and leave the boomers high and dry
The only useful thing about mine is that we get 40 hours guaranteed flat rate pay a week
Come to a right to work state, white man. Let the Socialism lite fail while you real your reward
One thing about unions is after Charlottesville I heard of a few guys getting doxxed and losing their job. Of course they weren't get out of the union but I'm sure it will follow them around. Johnny monoxide being one of them.
Ya he is on mike and the mad wop and paranormies. On episode 1 or 2 or mike and the mad wop he gives the whole story of what happened.
I really don't consume TRS stuff. I'll check it out.
I do when I need something not so serious and comical to enjoy between listening to audiobooks.
I'll probably catch flack for this, but I'm not a huge fan of Mike. I should probably check out the other ones, but I just haven't yet.
Check out fash the nation. For sure a good one and definitely not like the daily shoah
Just joined the group. I don't know if someone is already hosting a discussion on tracking, animal field dressing, shelter building, etc, but that is my field.
Also, is there anybody in this group interested in buying land to practice these skills?
@jaybird1#1419 check out the <#322712657973215233> channel
Thanks, will do
@jaybird1 if your in the upper Midwest I have land we can practice on, I am also a ranger moderator, welcome to the server!
@Brandon Ironside- ND , yes, I'm in Wisconsin. I'm hoping to set up a survival retreat and confidence building courses. I'm ex CB Navy, but I have extensive experience in long range shooting, medicinals, shelter building and primitive fire.
@jaybird1 Great, I would be interested in talking with you more about that, and making it a reality. You should write up a plan and post it in the ranger discussion channel, we can discuss the class curriculum , and see how many people would be interested in attending!
@Brandon Ironside- ND Great, will do. How many acres do you have available? I'm thinking 3 acre obstacle course, 300 yard firing range, and additional 10 acres for foraging, shelter building, etc. My goal is to establish a 10 man group of long range shooters.
fash the nation is the best alt right pod cast imo
@everyone anyone here good as sewing?
I'm alright at it
I'm ok as well. Whatcha need.
My fiancee is
Im decent at it, not a pro for sure but I can do it pretty well
I can sew
I fix and restore antiques I'll try a do some pictures of good over all tools to have and cleaning products to use
Geez. Literally just started doing today what Brandon posted in articles. The mivehind is real.
Right down to the 1000 lb goal, categories of self improvement, and weekly tracking goals
I ❤️ siggytism
I sew a bit
Hey can we create a sales/marketing channel?
haha totally on point
That's good for business!
I teach myself a ton of stuff online. Youtube taught me how to sew, crochet, iron... A ton of stuff my mom probably learned from my grandmother but never found the inclination to pass on. Is it the same for men?
The time you could have been helping your dad in the garage was when you were at soccer practice
My husband has to use YouTube for some things.
I need to learn to sew
I def use and recommend YouTube tutorials for lots of crafty things.
Also I feel like I know how to use a tape measure.... But do I?
@Deleted User I got into sewing so I could make/modify Hunting/Military/Tactical Gear. Let me know if you need any help. Heres an Uzi chest rig I made after i couldnt find anything i wanted to buy. You can pick up old quality sewing machines on craigslist for super cheap, adjust for inflation the model I bought cost 2,000 dollars in the 40's I picked mine up for 50 bucks, works great.
@Cait_Bradshaw - MA my pops didn't slack on passing knowledge down to me and my brothers. He taught us how to build a house from ground up, how to work on cars and small engine repair, we had a tobacco farm growing up and when my dad was home we weren't far off.
I don't have any sisters so my mom taught us how to cook, do laundry, sew, child care and other things women traditionally do, so we would be prepared for the world.
My dad even prepared us for the JQ. My dad is so awesome. Haha
Also, I wish we had and mason. I want to learn tuck pointing. I understand it, but I want the secrets.
That's awesome. My father (if indeed I could call him that) wasn't around and I know how to do more than he does. Just about everything I learned I either taught myself or was taught to me by my grandfather
Sad reality for a lot of people in this day and age.
That's why learning these things and passing them on are so important
I was taught many different things from my father my grandfathers and great grand fathers on both sides. I teach my sons how to do everything I know.
@RevStench that's fantastic. I have great parents too but they bought into the feminist narrative and figured we'd all be career women with no need/interest in homemaking. So besides basic laundry and cooking it was kinda shrugged off.
@Brandon Ironside- ND that is some sweet and badass sewing skills.
I'm going to a wedding in a couple of weeks and am going to be buying a suit. What are some new styles and trendy color combos right now?
You arent one of the groomsmen are you?
@here anyone have some advice for @Tony V - CA#7460 ?
Depends on the time of day and the setting. In any case- black is too dour unless you're the groom imo.
If it's in the morning I'd go light grey with notched lapels.
You can get away with wearing a non-white shirt as long as it's a light color and the tie doesn't clash
depending on time of day either grey or black. my preference for a tie or aesthetic trim color would be a deep red.
@Tony V - CA#7460 Post a pic of yourself with as much visible as you're comfortable
if you are going with a bowtie tho just keep it simple with black
very aesthetic and classical
full white tux is very hard to keep clean during the whole ceremony + possible after party.
Yeah it really depends on how formal it is and what time of day
@Deleted User If this is your first suit, I recommend a Navy Blue & Classic Fit suit. One can always be trendy with accessories such as shirts, tie, socks, pocket squares, etc
I have a nice navy blue suit, fits great. I'm wondering what color shirt and tie I should go with. It's a black tie event
White shirt, blue/white multi colored tie
I would stick with a White shirt. black tie non-sheen, black socks, black shoes and belt.
Yeah. Brown belt and shoes would go better if you had a blue/white tie, but if you have a black tie, black is necessary
Thanks for the fast responses I think I'll go with a white shirt and blue or black tie. Already have brown shoes and belt.
If its a black tie you need black suite, black shoes and black tie with white shirt preferably french cuffs. If it is black tie optional go with what you got fam.
If you're unhappy with your job because you have no opportunity to move up or get paid more and don't know what to do, explore alternative ways of raising your income.
Anyone good with photo editing?!?
May I dm you?
Go for it
@Deleted User is there any interest for starting a “get involved in local politics” server? A lot of talk about this in the general
@Evan Thomas#4159 Dude, this reeks of terrible decisions
@CJames - TN#6244 another good idea. I’m tied up these few days. Let me run that up the flag pole
Care to expand on your thoughts/concerns? @John O -#7072
It just has the je nais sais quoi of a scam
The article is just explaining how network marketing is working for a lot of businesses. There are thousands of people making a lot of money with MLM companies. It's always good to exercise caution to minimize risk and do what is right for you, though.
Most people don't have the money to start their own business and most of these companies don't require a hefty initial investment. If there is no other opportunity out there for someone that desires a lot more than what they're presently earning, at the very least, getting involved in something like MLM would help them to begin thinking bigger and more creatively. And if they work harder, smarter and faster than most of the people in it, they'll succeed.
Thinking outside the box of the normal 9-5 is especially necessary for the people in our movement.
I know a husband and wife that did mlm type businesses and saved up enough to start their own store. They seem to be doing pretty good. Successful people will succeed no matter what they do.
@Evan Thomas He mentions "The great Tony Robbins". I would be skeptical of anything said by someone who holds him in that high regard.
Tony Robbins isn't my favorite, but he's still got a tremendous following that find his information useful. I doubt I'd go to one of his events and I haven't read any of his books. I do know a little bit about his place in the self-improvement industry and think a lot of his gimmicky walking on fire stuff is great for short term inspiration and thought expansion, but that's about it. He's basically a brilliant marketer, but so far as I know, he doesn't teach how to build a great business.
https://youtu.be/Z-dqOi_z5bk Should've been a machinist. This shit is so implicit
@JudenFrei#6240 just that he hired out of state lawyers to represent him
When is that allowed?
When the judge allows it. Pro hac vice - for this occasion
@JudenFrei#6240 it’s usually not a problem as long as an in-state lawyer vouches that he’ll make sure you behave yourself
Why is there no welding channel?
@ParadoxusX I would post in the Machining channel, anybody who can run a mill, lathe, cnc likely can weld also. I do MIG welding if you need any help.
@Brandon Ironside- ND that’s cool, I was wondering if you would needed a welding sme?
@ParadoxusX we can change <#338633794896527360> to metalworking if you’re willing to pitch in
I work in manufacturing 👋🏻
@DCViking I’m always looking for guys who are willing to share their expertise
Absolutely. I have experience in assembly, fabrication and welding.
I need to come to this server more often, so much practical stuff to work on
Why is plumbing not on here
We don't have any plumbers. Everybody knows a little plumbing work.
"Your shit is my bread and butter."
@⚡Clark⚡ you can use that for your company.😂
I’m studying for my state plumbing license now. It’s seriously boring as hell and I hope I never get a chance to use it.
Plumbing is good honest work. Single plumbers in NYC are knocking back $200k a year.
Yea I work with and am friends with them, it’s just not my thing.
Right on. Well try another trade, I've worked in all the trades. Found I like carpentry the best.
I’m a pipe welder
I’m doing the pipe fitter apprenticeship so when I get old and blind I’ll know how to fit.
Haha I feel you there. You should try to get a job in an auto plant, if there's one close. Maintenance in a plant like that is sweet as.
I would love a nice maintenance job
Me too. I love what I do, but the benefits would be nice. And the slower pace would be great.
Are you up north?
No, I'm in Kentucky
I was thinking about electrical maintenance when I get old at a Ford plant or something
Move to the Midwest or Middle South and just kick back
@John O - right. My dad was the maintenance superintendent of Ford Louisville Automotive Plant. He retired 2 years ago and is getting ready to go back in a couple of weeks making ridiculous money.
My cousin is a machinist and started at Ford Kentucky Truck Plant making really good money, he's 34 and set for life.
My older brother started a few years ago just working the line and he has 4 kids and a stay at home wife.
The automotive industry is good shit. If you want to move to KY I can get you a referral 😂
And I love Henry Ford's views of the Jews😂
@RevStench ill move anywhere that pays good so i can provide for a big white family
i forgot this server was 🔥
I can get you a referral. One of the best jobs in Louisville. Low cost of living here in KY😆
thanks man ill keep that in mind
i gotta get out of the "chocolate city"
<@&338760705945894913> @Bismark TX in IE main server would like an invite
This was a good way to merge this server and the students server. Well done. @ThisIsChris
I’m an engineer
@Deleted User also I forgot to mention: the best thing you can do to help the academic channels is to post things you're interested in!
Add channels for programming and language-learning
any computer dudes mind suggesting where online i can get a computer built?
@Goose we have a <#352761432833523713> channel which would be a good place to start. I’m a Digital Storm guy myself.
Howdy goys, SAS programmer here
Ruby programmer here
Ive been working on a making a few kuksa as chistmas gifts for my parents and sibiling.( Since there doesn't seem to be a woodwork channel, I'm posting it here.)
Progress on the first one. Anyone got tips or tricks? Waiting for a hook knife to come in from Amazon so I can finish up the hollowing. For roughing I've been using a gouge with the kuksa wedged into a log, as I don't have a vice here yet
@RevStench and a few other guys should be able to give you a few pointers
@nils awesome. I'm working on some carving myself. I'm making a sign for a member, I don't carve often enough to give pointers though.
I did come into some oak 1x that's going to make this thing sweet as.
Everyone who has offered to help others in any academic area has received an AE (Academic Expert) role. So if you have a question (homework or otherwise) you can preface it with <@&387091385075105804> to get the attention of this group!
Chalk it up to tism or OCD, but I've become a big fan of to-do lists over the years for activities, studies, and exercise. I've been doing them monthly for a while now and have found that looking at them every morning encourages me to stick with the things I pursue. I want to share this month's as a template that some of you more diligent guys could use for your pursuits.
It's satisfying to cross stuff off the list every day.
Nice, I need to start doing this. I've been getting pretty lazy lately
My working hours got cut in half, so for the first week I didn't see any harm in just browsing the chans in all my free time
should add a sales skill for all the IE sales bros
Do we have any car experts here?
Yea there's a mechanics category
Ive been in the car buisness for years sales since 2014 finance since this year
or just <@&387091385075105804> can someone answer @this_that5553 ?
Not sure if humanities or stem or what
@sigruna14 Want to start a language learning channel here? Or a german learning channel?
Memrise is great
@this_that5553 a few of us were considering that. I’m going to be picking up Latin this semester and I know a few people were saying they’d like to as well.
Language learning is a hobby of mine. I simply dabble though. Would love to focus on one language in particular with a group of us. Maybe french or german for us and we can practice with our euro bros haha
Yeah absolutely. I have to learn a language for my degree and I went with Latin. Maybe not the best choice but I couldn’t resist
@this_that5553 bro I'm the same. I love language, but I've committed to one and I've been teaching myself Ukrainian for the last 3 years.
Yeah, language learning is great. Helps with self-confidence and talking to people as well
Same, but I dabble and can't commit
Need to fit it into my routine
We could start a group here
We should ^
We should set up a language exchange club for GI and IE. I'm sure most GI people know English really well, but perhaps they want practice. @Deleted User Did you notice any bad English over there?
Most didn't, only higher ups and those living in Belgium
English wasn't very commonly spoken and only somewhat understood
The leaders speak fluently however
Is that a prerequisite for leadership?
odd i thought almost all europeans knew english. especially younger ones and those in western europe
This is good. I think Germans are better with English, but either way, it would be great to have this language exchange program. We could have a discord server called “LBGTQ-Muslim Language Exchange” or something
I was part of a Rhodesian discord and before it was deleted they had several documents gathered. These were mostly do it yourself stuff found on chans but I'll leave them here for any who haven't seen these or are interested. Sorry in advance for the way these are organized, I had a hour to copy the links from discord and paste to my notepad before all was gone.
I'll do you one better. Something I picked up for my personal collection
Whomever want to learn French, I lived in Montreal when I was a kid for a while and speak it pretty well, so you could practice with me if you want
Im in to do a german hour on discord once a month or so. I know a few guys speak it and others are learning.
The question is then if people want to learn French or German. @Reinhard Wolff Can you ping someone from GI and get a general sense of which language would be better for our guys to use? I'd imagine the French struggle more with English than the Germans do. If you see above, I am wondering if we can get a language exchange going with GI and IE
@RevStench yw, yeah this suggestion has come up before too so I figured it's time
Let's get a "buy it for life" channel! I have make life easy tools I NEED to share 😂
Like stuff in general. Like the buy it for life on reddit. @ThisIsChris
Like I need a solid beard trimmer, or a nice blanket for camping in the winter, or a recommendation for a nice pen.
Something like that.
@RevStench beard trimmer? But we already have a gardening channel!
Yeah I am out now but will set something up when I get back
For buy it for life
Haha ass, it was just an example😂
The Wirecutter website has been really solid for me for buying even the smallest things (nail clippers). It might be pozzed now since getting bought out by The New York Times, but still handy.
<:ScreenShot20171214at1:390755300115873792> @Deleted User thoughts?
Product: "What do you MEME!" This product on Amazon must have made a million just based on the review count. Only maybe 5% of purchasers leave a review. Just an FYI for those wanting to work from home.
OMG... and the other one on Amazon: "Cards Against Humanity" 37000 reviews. Anyway, something to think about for those wanting to work from home. Riding the way of internet/meme culture can be a way to earn income.
I guess this really can't go under electrical, it's more of general tool use. This instruction will teach you how to use a torque wrench, one of the most essential tools for any task involving nuts and bolts.
This is a torque wrench
DASKGS400 is the catalogue number that identifies the kit where I got the bolts
Inside DASKGS400 is DA-600-S lug kits
This is 500 kcmil wire. It is 500k circular millimeters in diameter, hence the name
As you can see from the chart, under the DA-600-S lug, 500kcmil has to be torqued to 550 inch pounds
Since I only have a foot pound torque wrench, I need to divide 550 by 12 (12 inches in a foot)
I'll round it up to 46
Pull back and twist the handle until you get to 46 foot pounds
Unfortunately Discord won't let me post the short video I took, but you need to wrench until you feel the head "break" or hear a click
It's very important to set your tool back to 0 after each use to maintain accuracy
