But why would you want to mess with that platinum stuff. I saw an add saying you can get rich buying one of a kind silver coins (not an official currency of Liberia). Between that and staying at a Holiday Inn Express, I should be a millionaire by September.


Progressives are the most open minded, tolerant, and inclusive people on the planet, as long as you agree with everything they say, and do exactly as you're told.

I never understood why the authorities dont crack down on the shops buying these.


My biggest fear is when I die my wife will sell my guns for what I told her they cost.

A groid cut mine from my F350 at 11:30 a.m. in the center of a Home Depot parking lot. Feb. 2021.
Then the ass hole waited and watched me start the truck. Oh to have a grenade launcher. Fried groid.
Oh well, their careers don't last long when they get 3 40 cal hollow points in the melon.

Police said HDs lot cams are so schitty that they can't even get plates off them.

I haven't but there were a lot of guys getting their's stolen about a year ago in Des Moines. I kept mine locked in the garage with Ring lights on.


We may know the time Ben Carson lied, but does anyone know the time Hillary Clinton told the truth?

Immersing oneself in progressive lieberalism is no different than bathing in the sewage of Hell.

It happened to an RN where my wife has worked... She came out after work and found out they'd sawed off her CC.... But she had parked in the 'back lot' next to some dense trees and a hedge.....perfect cover for a CC thief...

spray painted mine with a neon caliper paint, then etched the last 4 digits of the VIN based on recommendation from news report I watched.

Just got this in one of my news feeds.

Seems to be a common theme in these thefts:
"Swearinger was then detained and the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office discovered marijuana, methamphetamine pills and fentanyl in his possession."

Six men arrested for 131 catalytic converter thefts

Six men arrested for 131 catalytic converter thefts

LIMESTONE Co., Ala. (WAFF) - The Limestone County Sheriff’s Office says that it has arrested six people and charged them with a total of 131 charges related to catalytic converter thefts.

According to a Facebook post from the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office, a catalytic convert business in Athens was suspected of unlawful sales. L and C Converters is a secondary metal recycler that purchases catalytic converters but according to Alabama law, that is illegal unless the entire car is purchased.

The Limestone County Sheriff’s Office observed converts being sold for cash at the business and contacted the individuals. Upon making contact, law enforcement discovered that the man delivering converters, Gary Swearinger, had a warrant with the Athens Police Department.

Swearinger was then detained and the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office discovered marijuana, methamphetamine pills and fentanyl in his possession.

Investigators also discovered 36 catalytic converters in plain view at the shop and shop owner, Jimmy Free Jr. did not have documentation for any of the converts

Free Jr. was arrested and charged with 36 counts of ownership documentation required for catalytic converter purchase. Free is being held at the Limestone County Detention Center with a $180,000 bond. Swearinger was arrested and charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana, he has been released from the Limestone County Detention Center on a $8,500 bond.

Limestone County Sheriff, Joshua McLaughlin says that he will not tolerate catalytic converter thefts in Limestone County.

We have arrested 6 individuals, on a total of 131 charges related to the theft of catalytic converters, in the past 12 days,” McLaughlin said. “We will not tolerate catalytic converter crimes in Limestone County.”

I always throw my dog's crap where I park. That and poison oak clippings.

Seems to be a deterrent.

You gotta know in someplace like Limestone County, people would know him. And if they had had a converter sawn off, he’d be a ripe candidate for an ass kicking. Hope he (they)gets some genuine homestyle comeuppance
