    Had the same thing happen Monday morning.

  • [8] November 28, 2014 at 12:49pm

    Here is how others are rolling it…..
    Suspect is a 50 year old Austin resident with a criminal history.
    Authorities have not offered a motive, but the police chief said that the shooter’s “violent anti-government behavior” — as evidenced by attacking buildings that belong to Mexico’s government, the U.S. government and, in the police headquarters, the city government — may have come from ongoing and often vitriolic debates in society.
    “Our political discourse has become very heated and sometimes very angry, and sometimes the rhetoric is not healthy,” Acevedo said, adding that the divisive immigration debate “comes to mind,” given that the federal courthouse and Mexican Consulate were targeted. “… I would venture, based on my training and experience, that the political rhetoric might have fed into some of this.” —Austin Police Chief
    So in Ferguson, the Black activists stirring the pot for months have absolutely nothing to do with looting and riots, but in this case, simply public discourse is enough to send this guy over the edge….

    So stop debating what the government does people, just let them do whatever they want. It is your fault this happened. —yes, this last part was sarcasm.

    And after this is all over they will be complaining that there are no jobs locally (racism) because all of the businesses have had enough of the BS and set up shop elsewhere (greedy capitalist racists) they will be holding their hands out for more benefits and further complain when none are forthcoming from the Congress (racism).

    Anyone see a pattern here? In the end they will learn nothing and find themselves sliding further into the slave master’s clutches (dependency). Everyone’s fault but their own.

    The first time I heard his voice it gave me chills, hairs on the back of my neck stood on end, like nails on a chalk board, or like something wicked this way comes.

    Catty, people make lots of threats and consider doing many things. The fact remains they did not succeed and if they had, yes, congress should have attempted impeachment.

    We shall see if your benefactor actually pulls the trigger.

    Sarge, on the Hillary thing….. from your keyboard to God’s ears! I hope you are correct. It just worries me that last two times the country voted , we got this POS Communist and his minions….not exactly baggage free.

  • [7] November 18, 2014 at 5:39pm

    Sarge, I disagree that he is whooped. He is a sociopath and one of the symptoms is they make the same errors in judgment over and over again because he is never wrong.

    The way he sees it, he does this and gets challenged, the Repubs impeach him with a big dog and pony show for which he is made to look like he is a martyr by the press, further swinging minority and soft hearts the democrat way……

    or the Repubs do nothing, the illegals vote in ’16 and if Hillary gets in they have another 8 years to do what ever the hell they want by executive fiat because precedent was set and the separation of powers no longer matters.

    You mean goober-ing? My dog can do that. Think he can get a job as press secretary? He does like to sniff crotches.

    Things have changed…let me check, yep still unconstitutional.

    Ender, Horsefly bites? Mine might jig a little or get high headed but they would never dare rear with a rider on their backs. Is your horse an OTTB? Glad you are okay.

    She is young (about 3) a bit spoiled, strong willed and allowed to run amok in the herd (4 geldings and another mare).

    Long story short we were all messing around in our pasture with the horses and she attacked a 24 year old gelding out of the blue(I was brushing him at the time), charged my 11 year old daughter and kicked at the cowboy when he tried to stop her. Bad idea on her part.

    She needed a little schooling in manners. He has been working with her on and off, so he decided to back her. He was not sitting but, laying on her back and neck (holding the halter under her chin at the same time) she went from calm to rearing in a flash. He breaks colts as part of his living.

    After the top over tea kettle rear, he laid her down till she gave in and has been better behaved since. She needed immediate disciplinary action she was getting dangerous.

    People talk all of the time about breaking a horses spirit and then in the next breath reel on the evils of horse slaughter.

    A horse who hurts riders and is dangerous to be around has a high probability of ending its life at a meat packing plant if they don’t get a bullet first.

    Just as with children (I have 5), the best thing you can do for your spoiled horse to keep them out of a packing plant is to give them rules, manners and discipline. Don’t do it and they are out stealing cigars from gas stations, attacking cops and getting themselves dead.

    Indagila, I watched a friend/trainer go over backwards on a neighbor’s horse he was breaking last week.
    Lucky for him he is a cowboy (one of the few left), done it many times and he stepped off backwards at the last second, I was worried for a second there! (PS no he was not being cruel, the mare chose to do it to herself. The only thing the horse had on was a rope halter….first backing, no saddle. The horse was not injured either thank goodness.)

    Digital, rearing is NOT desirable and if you have a horse that does it, you have a serious problem with your horse.

    He saw something. He said something.

    Apparently that mantra only applies to checking up on your family, neighbors, friends and co-workers and not the Government. When it comes to them, they prefer that you “hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil”.

  • [3] November 15, 2014 at 8:16pm

    You work your arse off to make ends meet and set a bit aside for the day you are too arthritic to rope cattle.Then you die and your kids get stuck with the millionaire’s tax bill. It’s why the family farm is headed for extinction.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that since this thing has been “organized” it will not be Ferguson alone that sees “protests”. Chicago, Detroit, D.C. perhaps Atlanta, Houston….if you live in a big city, be prepared.

    Oh, there is inflation, the gurus just don’t want to publically admit to it because 1) they think we don’t notice that our grocery bill has just about doubled since 2007 2) if they admitted to it, the public would demand they change the way they are doing things and they would have to get off the gravy train they have been riding 3) They have so corrupted the system that if they were to attempt to repair it, the whole thing would collapse under its own weight in the interim.

    It is also one of the parameters for diagnosing a sociopath.

  • [3] November 11, 2014 at 10:22pm

    Make one that can pull 6,000 lbs up a steep, unpaved, grade after a week of rain and I may consider buying one. Until then, useless.

    They push Omega 3′s and then olive oil which has a 10:1 ratio of omega 6 to omega threes. Omega 6 counteracts the benefits of omega 3′s in that it can cause inflammation among other things.

    I have done both. Had my first at 20 and my last at 35.

    The stresses are different. In my 20′s pregnancy and delivery was a breeze. We didn’t have a lot of money, but it forced me to get creative when making ends meet.

    We learned to do a lot of things for ourselves like fixing cars, framing and detail carpentry, how to put up vinyl siding, remodel a kitchen, reupholstering, growing a garden large enough to feed you through the winter, sewing, getting stains out of the clothing from the free box at garage sales, repairing appliances….all of those skills and do for yourself attitudes were passed down to our older children who have made the most of it with their young families.

    We have more money now and are comfortable enough but the stress is different. Now I worry that despite living on a farm, where chores are part of life, my younger two will not realize the value of hard work like their siblings. We say “no” often and make them work for what they want, but it is different, the struggle is not real, and the kids know it.
