      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Subject: House Bill HR45

Subject: House Bill HR45

Are you ready for the House Bill titled 'HR 45, Blair Holt Licensing and

Record Act of 2009'. It will make it illegal to own a firearm unless it is

registered with the database in Washington D.C. As a gun owner you will

have to be finger printed, you will be required to provide your DL#, SS#,

you must maintain a valid address at all times, submit to mental and

physical health records being put on file, you will also be required to

file any address changes and any ownership changes even if a private sale.

Each update will cost $25 and if you fail to comply you will lose your

right to own firearms. This bill and its language mirror almost completely

one defeated last year in the House of Representatives by soon to be Chief

of Staff Rahm Emanuel. Will we the citizenry be as lucky this time?

Pass this on to everyone who believes in strict Constitutionalism and

remember that laws only apply to those who obey them. Criminals by

definition and nature do not abide by laws. New laws and restrictions only

apply to the law abiding citizen and are not written with the criminal in

mind. With guns, it is not about having laws on the books to prosecute

individuals, it is about taking guns away from the people so that no one

has them in the first place. One last item to note, when assuming power

and creating a facist state, Hitler was a proponent of strong gun laws

because a disarmed populace was much easier to control than an armed one.

The kings of old also outlawed weapons of any kind in any region that they

conquered to quell the ability of the citizens to uprise against them.

The Founding Fathers of this nation understood all of the above and

because of this they included the second amendment in the constitution. In

fact, they knew that at some point in every society's life span that the

need for the population to arise came about.. To this end they made the

right to keep and bear arms against a tyrannical state an absolute right

that could not be revoked. They did this because the first thing tyrants

and despots do is to remove a population's right to defend themselves.

When this is done, the tyrants have no problem with the destruction of

society as we know it.

Protect your Second Amendment!

This is the Bill that was discussed in this weeks Outdoor News. My blood was really boiling after reading what someone actually thought was a good way of going about getting guns off the street.

The only people who would register are the honest ones and some hunters. The people committing the crimes are not going to register their guns and provide all that information. The people who wrote this bill are living in la la land.

This is another example of why I belong to the NRA. I do not always agree with what they want to do but, they do go to battle with the govermant against all this gun control. A simple $25.00 annually can go a long ways in protecting ones gun rights.

I agree this is nothing to laugh at as it could get passed. Forget the scare tactics, it will be to late to do anything when the l;aw is passed.

Call your reps now and let them know how you feel at a minimum.

    • I would say that it is pretty typical that Social Studies and History classes in High School are often a decade or two behind.   It takes time for the teacher colleges and textbooks and curricula to get updated and approved and incorporated.    Also giving things a good while to cool down is safer as well.  I don't recall my kids getting taught about Vietnam, and that was a decade or so after it was over.   I wonder if kids in high school today are getting taught anything about 9/11 and Kuwait and Iraq and war on terror and all that?   And if so, what they are being taught?

    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Water temps are hovering in the low 60’s despite the very fall like weather we are experiencing. 

      The scenic Canadian shore lines are coming to life with various critters. Otter, bear and more making preparations for the coming winter.

      Walleye fishing in Canada is excellent with a jig and minnow or shiner. The most productive environment has been gaps at 15-18’ with plenty of current present. Good numbers of perch are being caught off deep edges or reefs at 30’ or more. Crappies are a little more difficult this week, the best chances are on a light set up.

      Around Minnesota, walleyes can still be had with a crankbait but favored methods are switching over to a jig tipped with a shiner on main lake points between 20 and 24’. 

      Muskies are moving deeper with anglers transitioning from casting to trolling. There is still time to boat a big fall fish!

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I had a Great Wars class in HS, teacher spent most of the semester drawing castle defenses on the blackboards that wrapped around three quarters of the classroom.....moats, arrowslits, murder holes, talus, and trou de loup's.  WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam were covered in the last week of class.  *chuckle*  We even watched Monty Python and The Holy Grail. "Spank me"
    • Nah, about the time the libbers started taking over education and just ignored anything not on their brainwashing agenda! 
    • Next time it happens call them before unplugging. They can run a system check to see if it's on their end our yours. Then you know it's time to buy a new 55" inch set!
    • From what i can recall from my school days the teachin lady never really covered the Vietnam war as well as the Korean war in class. Maybe our textbooks were too old but did many of you have much learnin on these wars.  They covered the civil war and world wars but almost skipped over these.  I assume it was because we pretty much got our posteriors handed to us and that doesn't sit well.
    • I have Comcast service and a problem has developed.  The Samsung 50 inch TV is about 6 years old.  A couple of times in the past few days the screen goes blank.  The audio still works.  I have tried a few things but eventually found that what works is to simply unplug the entire system and let it sit for a short time.  Once plugged back in and the thing is allowed to reboot it works.  Any ideas? Thanks for your time. Tom
    • I'm all for Freedom of-stuff.  Also for Gratefulness and Thankfulness to the folks who died so these guys can play with their balls and make mill's while the rest are in the ground!     That's how freedom keeps working.
    • I really don't give a shiat either way. You're the one who constantly gets his panties in a twist over this stuff. Really chafes your nethers, huh? When I saw the solo Pittsburgh guy standing there I said "Good for him", and as for the rest of the team in the locker room I said "Good for them." That's how freedom works.
