You all are going to love this one [View all]

I fly large high power rockets as a hobby and part of what I do is make my own motors, I hold permit from California as a pyrotechnician, a low explosive users permit from the federal government and live on 10 acres in the desert. My neighbor is upset that I am liberal and not willing to support Trump and saw a delivery marked explosives, which I have stored on my property for over 10 years and called the Sheriff. He says that I am receiving explosives as part of a project run by the Biden administration to violently suppress Trump supporters in the area and need to be taken out as quickly as possibly to protect real Americans, the Sheriff's office knows about the explosives since they are permitted and refused to respond so he came out and asked me how much it cost to buy off the local cops and that this isn't over.
