Okay - I get why this thread was branched off to start a new one. And I now have a better understanding of the rules - no problem. But, I didn't start this thread or conversation. I commented in response to another member's post about the UN taking American tax dollars and funneling them to folks who don't have America's best interests at heart.. The post I was responding to has been removed, along with the first paragraph of my longer reply. It now appears that I started my remarks with , "That is why", which will lead folks to wonder what I'm talking about and probably just cause more trouble. I would request that this entire thread be deleted, so that my words are not taken out of the context intended.

I always figure that if Congress is out of session, we can at least breathe easier. I worked a bit with Sen. Jesse Helm (a great man) and agreed with his sentiment about the UN, which was essentially, Y'all just go on home and quit spending other people's money! Age and bad influences caused him to moderate toward the UN (and I admit that they do some good on International health issues) toward the end. But, those boys just need to go on home and take care of their own! Sen Helms was a gentleman and a true southerner - we'll not see another like him in this generation!

Re: Hello

Regardless, that is why I'm a libertarian as opposed to a Libertarian. I worked for Harry Brown and Bob Barr (an old friend from his congressional years) and many very conservative Republicans, but I'm a Jeffersonian at heart (in America's first act of war we took on the Muslim Barbary Pirates). I believe in individualism, capitalism, property rights, religious freedom, etc, and I also think we should bomb the hell out of anyone who threatens us. I wouldn't put a single boot on the ground in some backwater muslim country.... I'd nuke them. You threaten us, you attack us, we nuke you! I wouldn't make a whole country pay for its leadership - I'd specifically target their president, parliament, etc and just nuke the capitol city. I guarantee it wouldn't happen twice! It really pisses me off that AMerica can no longer fight a war without the left undermining out own troops after a month or two. But, that is the case, so that leaves two options - slowly decay as a world power and accept the consequences or use out nuclear weapons.... be England in the 70s-preasant or AMerica in the 40's and 50s.

Meanwhile, we have to clean house - get rid of the freakin Obama phones! For 20 years+ kids have graduated high school functionally illiterate and incapable of basic math. Everyone "deserves a college education", so they go into remedial programs in college... funded by grants and tax-payer subsidized loans. Over the past 10 years I've lost most of my family due to simple "mistakes" in hospitals caused by people who never learned to reason or think in a linear fashion. Hell, if 1+1 doesn't have to equal 2, then why not give a patient two medications that are contra-indicated and cause their death? There are no consequences. The dollar is being devalued. Everyone has the new gadgets. We're driving off a cliff and taking the whole damn world with us. GRRRR

So, now we have to choose between the National Socialist, Obama and the Mormon (not even monotheistic) moderate Romney. The Libertarian party gives us a guy (or two, since the official nominee isn't the guy most are voting for) who doesn't seem to notice the gun pointing our heads - which is a primitive, radical, pre-enlightenment Islam that has vowed to bathe the world in blood to bring about the coming of the 12th Imam and the end of the world. So, I guess I'm pulling for ROmney and hoping he doesn't do a damn thing but repeal Obama-care, put another decent Catholic judge or two on the Supreme Court, manage the economy and defense and pass the torch on. But, I doubt that will help. As far as I'm concerned, the death of AMerica began about 1850. A few good guys tried to pull the fat out of the fire - Goldwater, Reagan Buckley, Buchanan - but it is pretty much over. Now all we can do is manage the decline.... and keep an eye on the door if there is anywhere to go.

Re: Hello

No problem - I'm not used to being agreed with. Anyway , are you going to skin that pig or just singe the bristles/hair off? Either way, it should make some nice pork rinds/cracklins/chicherones! Smaller pigs like that are great for whole hog barbecue - but you might want to age the meat a bit first if you have the facilities.... great trotters or pickled pigs feat too... I'm envious! Some old French chef called the pig "a moveable feast" - from snout to tail, it is all delicious. I've got a good head cheese recipe if you decide to break it down.... I just got in from playing a gig. Time for some beer and pork liver pudding!

Re: Hello

That little piggy is bled out and now it s time to skin and quarter and ice down for a few days before I decide what to do. I'm halfway scared to try some of your recipies.;) I don't like wasting but the time involved. I have my moves down for what I use and like.
I may need to check out your favorite recipe book though. I don't think the pigs feet section will interest me. I have seen them all my life and still aint ate none. Now try a lambs feet been cooked for 12-14 hours.;)

Re: Hello

I can't imagine anyone in the Brazos Valley - home to one of my heros, Hank Thompson - would be scared of anything! I've been picking western swing for years - lots of beautiful country out your way.

You'd be surprised - when that cartilage melts down and turns to gelatin ... and the marrow... four feet make a pretty good meal!

Re: Hello

Tim, Hold off a bit. I ordered it from Amazon and it should be here in a week or so. I'll let you know and maybe loan it to you to pick over.

John
Yeah, I would have offered to loan mine, but it is already loaned a friend in Wisconsin. He's into making Polish sausages.

Re: Hello

You would be surprised! Were scared shitless of Losing our founding principles. we tend to lean towards Look them in the eyes and tell it like it is. Now a days that aint P C.
I would agree, but I'm pretty sure those are already gone. Now, the best we can do is mere survival.

Re: Hello

Not to spoil this party but someone needs to start a new thread as this one originally was an intro by Irish horse-dude.

I've always intended to delete these off topic threads anyway. I'll leave it up for a few days to see if anyone wants to add to the thread. It doesn't make sense that there would be 15 replies in the wrong place and no replies when the off topic replies are moved to their own thread.

In general...posts and threads will be removed depending on the mod's and admin's attitude on any given day. If there are a lot of off topic posts one day, they might all be deleted. If the off topic has any merit, the posts might be moved. There are no rules the mods and admins follow...and I never question the mod's or admin's decisions.

This is the exact reason he is no longer allowed on the boards. He was told many times to stop posting political comments and he just couldn't stop. Personally, I'll trade oldsouth's babble for Istambulin's insight any day of the week.
