It isn't "nice liberals". It is exploitation of "nice liberals" by "socialists" and fascists in sheep's clothing who want to destroy our cities and our government.

I like your choice of words. ;)

It was stripped off my back, while standing in line.

My SVEA 123 was complete, even the little cup-lid, and, the separate accessory pump.

Smiley's Outfitters of San Francisco is no longer in business. The fitted nesting billy cooking pots and fitted nesting stuff sacks are unique. Smiley's Outfitters of San Francisco had the billy cooking pots made for the SWEA 123, because, no doubt, so many of their customer's had the SVEA 123 stove.

Yes you are right... I understand Liberals mean well or most of them mean well but it just does not work.. Others will always take advantage of the liberal thing and will not just do the right thing. Thats the problem the majority mean well but its that 10% that ruin it. I always said with giving to others and helping others comes "GREAT RESPONSIBILITY" to teach them as well to do the right thing. Not to just give privileges with no responsibilities or understanding of those privileges. Sort of like dont give someone a fish to eat as he will only eat once teach a man to fish himself and he will feed himself for a lifetime.

Perfect example this bum did not steal your stove while it rest in your backpack on a chair while you went to grab a napkin 10 feet away he boldly grabbed it off a law abiding citizen in broad daylight in front of people. Pretty ugly and pretty brazen. In the old days that would have happened once the guy would have got a beating of his life and the word would be out "Dont steal off a woman in broad daylight in a crowded store front" But because no one does anything the thieves just get more brazen and more fearless because there are literally no consequences for their actions. When is enough enough! Sorry But I can not believe someone can grab a woman's bag in broad daylight in a store with people and no one did anything. I guarantee that if he did it in front of me he would not have made it ten feet away and would have walked away with a limp to remind him to think twice before trying a stunt like that again. Thats the problem these days no one takes responsibilities for there actions anymore. its always the "Oh poor me" or the "Oh he didnt mean it" etc.. I am tired of it.. I can not go to the city without walking into a store front and it smelling of someone taking a dump in it or piss.. Of watching a mother with her 14 year old daughter on holiday being hassled by a bum calling her every fowl name in the book by the bum because she wont give him a dollar to go drink booze and buy more drugs. Sorry I have no tolerance for it at all anymore... NONE!

Yep Zelph its really really got bad in San Fran.. They are very aggressive and mean and down right vile in the manners and the things they say and do if you dont give them money.. Its be designated a Sanctuary city by the mayor and seriously all common sense has gone out the window. Sad as it is a beautiful city.

Our society is only going to get worse. We need to be prepared. I suspect it's difficult to prepare yourself for what goes on in SanFran. I visited there once when I was stationed in Monterey(Ft. Ord). Took a bus ride there and was to meet up with a friend. While I was at the bus station a car load of guys hit on me, tried to get me to go on a date with them. They whistled at me and gave big smiles. I new for sure I was in California. I met up with my buddy and went to fishermans warf, ate good, drank alot, laughed a lot and enjoyed the warf. That was a "day in SanFrancisco" :mrgreen: Finished up my training in Monterey and then went to Ft. Sam Houston, Texas.

I was a nice liberal, with a conservative background, I thought was a good combination of values.

I was tolerant of people's choices, not my choices, but my idea of "it's a free country" is only your freedom ends where you mess with my freedom.

Those values worked well, until there was a "revolution" taking place in San Francisco, CA.

It is a "revolution".

I really thought nice people of different choices enjoyed San Francisco, CA when it was a liberal city.

However, more people are mean to the bone, waiting for a chance to have the ascendancy. It is every bit as scarey as a concentration camp. These guys (and gals) could be the sadistic and cruel murdering "guards". And I don't mean just "gay".

We have such "people" who feel oppressed - even when they are not - people enjoying an excellent "lifestyle".

It is difficult to "wrap your thinking" around that idea. But it is there. It is also here, in small town Montana.

It is essential for "good people" to be strong, whatever their persuasion, to keep the freedoms we enjoy.

I think more tolerance is needed, for differences, and more intolerance is needed for "crossing personal boundaries".

"Your freedom ends where you mess with my freedom" could be a slogan. We need our freedom, all of us. But we need to be able to pull-on-the-reins or choose to live with our friends, rather than move in and mess with other's freedom.

There is certainly plenty of room for being different, if no one is crowding you.

That guy gave my pack to a girl in the coffeeshop. When I said, that is my pack, she and her dad left the neighborhood.

I don't know if he kept my SVEA 123 "complete kitchen" or not. :cry: Tragic story, I know.

Roger that.. Yep your correct a liberal with a conservative background is someone I can respect as your a "BALANCE" of both. But unfortunately the liberals of today are gimmie gimmie and no rules and a huge sense of "SELF ENTITLEMENT" Why because how is someone to appreciate what they have or were "GIVEN" without earning it.. The more you give and the more they complain. Yes there needs to be a Balance of tolerance between diversity and getting a free ride for nothing or getting away with bloody murder. Nice chatting with you and lets enjoy the outdoors were the laws of the jungle apply far more and are less clouded. Those rules of the outdoors are just that the rules and you can not cheat them. One of the reasons I like the outdoors so much.. So lets get out there and enjoy them. Your welcome at my "Safe" campfire anytime.

Maybe that is why I prefer the outdoors?

I have many happy memories, that SVEA 123 stove burning at the campsite. That roaring stove was a cheerful sound.
