    I agree that any meddling from Russia would be at best, accelerating something already in progress or exacerbating something already present.

    If they are helping push a wedge, it was a weapon of opportunity.

    It’s been quite some time since the west had a great unifying event.

    In the spirit of this subforum where it is agreed by almost all that it is in bad form and bad decorum to discuss politics, I am being very careful when I opine and skirt around discussing policies.

    I just happen to agree with those thinkers and alarmists (some call them losers which is just fine with me) who sound alarm bells that we are again approaching a dangerous level of wealth concentration by the very, very few who increasingly want even more and more of it to ensure that nepotism and cronyism rules the day over upward mobility and meritocracy. Study history, these things have happened before with very dire consequences.

    I suggest for the benefit of Nathan & Jo that we refrain from any mention of political/social issues. I hear that crap all day long, and I come to this forum (& BladeForums in general) to escape the BS in the news and various forms of media. If someone wants to whine about a failed policy of the right or left, go to Whine & Cheese, and keep it out of this forum! We could not even discuss COVID-19 without it becoming political, and I guarantee the same will happen with any other discussion of current issues.

    In keeping with talking about knives and CPK in particular, what's the next CPK you are hoping to buy, maybe a Boot Dagger, or maybe something more traditional like a SDFK? :)

    I agree with almost everything you said, BUT- don't go to W&C with that shit either, unless you are masochistic and enjoy being impaled, drawn and quartered and/or stretched on the rack

    You are dreaming for sure. Unless Nathan decides that we all get equal opportunity to acquire one....

    Otherwise, there will be blood!
