    Tough and gamey, but the folks out in the country know how to deal with that pretty well… Usually with a nice long soak in a salt brine or some how brew marinade… :) They never turned down the ones we game them, no matter how old and mean :)

    One of the original “Hogzillas” came off our club, and he didn’t survive being caught. Just beat the holy hell out of some good ol’ boys and then died of a heat attack as the Massey Ferguson tractor was setting him down in his new pen… I agree though, they usually don’t get that big unless they’ve been cut…

    I made the mistake of shooting a big hog with a .223 a few years ago. Luckily I had a close quarter combat scope and was able to hit him again pretty quick after he bolted. Still we were lucky to find him. He went down in a brier patch about 100 yards away. I won’t make that mistake again. I’ve seen hogs a lot smaller than this take a .306 in the shield area and keep right on truckin’… A .223 IMHO is just not enough bullet…

    In South Georgia we chase them down with a pack of dogs, hogtie them, and bring them out alive. Then we either mess with them later, or give them to a poor family or something. If you have to stop and clean every one it’ll eat up your whole morning. Doing it that way you can catch a half dozen of more before lunch…

    Great way to show how silly the temper tantrum was, and will be hysterical at her wedding! :)

    “A group that always loses elections, or tends to do lately”?

    WHAT? lol

    I hate to break the news to this clown, but the REALITY is since President Obama took office, Democrats have had a net loss of 56 House Seats, 2 US Senate Seats, and 9 Governorships!

    The word “democracy” does not appear in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Constitutions of any of the 50 states. Instead, the Constitution guarantees to all the states a Republican form of government. We pledge our allegiance to our “Republic”, not to our “Democracy”. We sing “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”, not “The Battle Hymn of the Democracy”.

    Sharpton is a CLOWN.

    The bible is full of examples of God using angels to deliver messages, which is exactly what she said she was doing.

    The bible also says we will entertain angels in our homes and not even know it, which implies they come in human form, and I think that is exactly what happened that day.

    I’ll never be able to prove she was an angel, and that’s ok. I know what I know, and I will literally go to my grave believing she was exactly that.

    I’ve never seen a look like that in anyone’s eye. I’ve never been spoken to with that kind of conviction. I’ve never seen that kind of “aura” around a regular person…

    Now, let me tell you the REST of the story – what she had no way POSSIBLE way of knowing.

    My girlfriend and I had an unplanned pregnancy. I had refused to even consider an abortion, and instead demanded she tell her parents she was pregnant. They had refused to even consider a marriage due to religious differences, and insisted the baby be given up for adoption.

    That day, as I walked along, I was literally agonizing over the thought of signing those papers.

    At the time, NO ONE knew the gender of the child.

    In the end I took the angel’s advice. I literally prayed for my son virtually every day from then until we were reunited years later.

    During those years I somehow came to know how everything would turn out. I knew we’d meet again when he turned 18. I knew we’d be reconciled and have a close relationship. I also knew he would come to live with me for some period of time, which turned out to be a couple of years. All that prayer brought me that knowledge, comfort, and peace.

    I also believe I met an angel once.

    Back when I was in college, I was President of the Young Republicans at Georgia State University, and my friends and I went to the 1988 Republican National Convention in New Orleans.

    One evening as I was leaving, I was walking across that now infamous bridge right outside the Superdome, and was sort of into my head thinking about a serious issue I had.

    The bridge was closed to automobile traffic, but open to foot traffic. I was in the middle of a huge crowd of people leaving, and she, a very sharp, professional looking African American woman in her mid 30′s or so, was in the middle of a huge crowd streaming in from opposite direction on the other side of the bridge.

    For some reason our eyes met, and she crossed the bridge, made a bee line straight for me, stopped me dead in my tracks, looked me square in the eye, and said, “I have a message for you from God.”

    Taken aback, I looked at her like she had three heads, and said, “WHAT?”

    Again, slowly this time, in an almost patronizing “here we go again, but I’m so used to this reaction” tone of voice, she said, “I… have a message… for you… from God”.

    In utter disbelief, I furrowed my brow, cocked my head back, and said, “Ooooo K, what is it?”
    She said, “Pray for your son every day”. Then she turned, and walked away, as if she had just stopped on her way to work to buy a cup of coffee, and was off to complete her next task.

    Yea I bet it’s fake too…

    Beck should demand a retraction, but be slow to sue without lots of good legal advice. He is a public figure, and her speech was political in nature, As vile and inaccurate as it was, political speech is our most protected form of free expression, and prevailing in such a suit is extremely difficult.

    If this case ever gets in front of a jury, that bank will WISH for the day they could have made this go away for 18 grand, or even several TIMES that…

    Did we say, “The life of a white person is apparently worth less than the life of a black person”, following the OJ trial?

    Patriot, I used to raise ostrich. Take a look at their feet next time you see one in a zoo. Focus on that for a moment, and it’s not hard to see the connection between them and a dinosaur. BTW – never turn your back on an ostrich. They can kick a hole in a car door. My rooster LIVED to try to kill me.

    I have a Silver Tetradrachm minted somewhere between 323 and 326 BC. It has Alexander the Great on one side, and Zeus and his pet owl on the other. It is one grade below museum quality, and it’s provenance and authenticity are both beyond reproach.

    For fun I sometimes ask people to guess what it is worth, and usually get somewhere between 50 and 500K. People are usually stunned when I tell them I paid only $175 for it a decade or so ago.

    Why is something like that so cheap? Supply and demand. They just aren’t that rare, and few people even care about such coins.

    One of my goals in life is to one day own a high quality example of each of the major 12 coins mentioned in the bible. They are fascinating because there is almost no scientific disagreement with regard to such coins. For example, the 30 pieces of silver paid to Judas was undoubtedly the Silver Shekel of Tyre. We know this because it was the only coin the temple took, hence the need for money changers. It was also the coin Jesus spoke of when he told Peter to go catch a fish, take a coin out of its mouth, and go and pay the tax for the two of them. We know this because the tax was exactly 1/2 shekel per man.

    Remember the story of the Widow’s Mite? I sometimes give out real ones for Christmas. They can be ordered in bulk for about $15 each. I put them in Christmas cards along with a brief description of the story, and walk around church handing them out.

    These coins keep it real.

    Not guilty.

    There is a REASON this case wasn’t going to be prosecuted until the race hustlers got involved, and that is because they obviously didn’t have a case…

    Global warming?

    And they laugh at us for believing in Jesus!

    Lincoln would have laughed at the mere suggestion that the government can control the weather…
