Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas, everybody. May God bless all of you in the coming year. One of my favorite quotes about Christmas from one of my all time favorite shows. Chris Stevens, from behind the mic on his radio show in Cicely, Alaska on Nothern Exposure- "It's an old legend, that on Christmas Eve at midnigh...

Re: Happy Birthday Cole Younger

Thanks, y’all. Thought I had been banned. Turns out I wasn’t. That’s a good birthday present I guess. I’ve spent this birthday in the deer stand which is a lot better than spending it at work and Mrs. Younger made me biscuits with cane syrup which is about as good as anything else she might have had...

Re: The Neverending Thread for Political Shit

Re: The Neverending Thread for Political Shit

It wasn't a surprise to me that Trump got a lot of votes and almost won the thing. Most elections are about 50 50 from what I can tell. So, where exactly is the divide? Maybe it's how to examine the divides differently. Are "trump supporters" all bigoted racists who should suffer for being such a t...

I think you’re both missing the point.

Re: The Neverending Thread for Political Shit

As a practical matter, you can't tell some people on your side to get off the streets and not others. It's either in the streets or off the streets.

Re: The Neverending Thread for Political Shit

And the condoning of bad acts happens in both directions. The police are receiving a lot of hate, not because people believe they are ALL racists or ALL want to shoot people on the street, but because a lot of them condone the few who do I know it. I’m in a quandary on police. I can’t stand people ...

Re: The Neverending Thread for Political Shit

More like we need to ignore the rioting because of what side they are associated with. When acts of racism or white supremacy aren’t vigorously condemned but just sort of ignored, that’s not ok right? So when rioting is at best just sort of downplayed that’s not ok either. We agree. I don’t condone...
