You’d probably find a similar stash in most houses in Trinity county.

Discovering explosives is worrisome. Several groups in the deep South have made it known if the elections are not to their liking they will use whatever they have to disrupt post elections and I believe that could mean explosives. America will face dangerous times in 2020 and 2024. Recall Ruby Ridge. I think it there is a video on YouTube. And already the Nation’s Federal Voting Bill has been defeated possibly subverting elections as conservative Republicans pass restricted voting by people of color and the elderly. Whatever your politics you should be concerned that the GOP will set the stage of conservative Republican’s will be in control of Government for years and that means the ultra 1% rich. Big business want more tax breaks and more of the country’s assets leading to the control of all prices and wages. We lose the right to vote and game over for the general public.

Ok you maybe overthinking this one. Discovery explosives (not sophisticated) is not great, but not political in Trinity. Just common for hillbillies and other mountain vermin with too much time and/or meth on their hands. Really this is much ado about nothing. Please move along.

This comment! no voting no freedoms. While you are here pointing out actual issues the right wing contingent on this site the rover, the squirrel, and the other GUYS, are on the abortion thread wanting to take freedom away from women, and create more unwanted children who they also don’t think the state has any responsibility to educate.
they parrot OAN or Fox News here all day and claim they are free thinkers. Your comment about the voting rights republicans are trying to take away will probably be ignored by the “freedom fighters” on the black belt. Sadly the real problem is the deft use of propaganda that these freethinkers don’t seem to realize they are swimming in.
