The other day ... in another thread I posted how the farmer I'm helping out always offers to help. Last night after a long night, he shows up as I'm dragging dead deer from all over his corn stubble field and offers the tractor & bucket. I tell him: "it wouldn't break my heart if it's not too much trouble." Tell him to dump the deer at the gutting location and then "I've got it." Long story but I had a deer standing out in the field for over an hour that wouldn't come through the dead deer scattered about. That pushed my night later and later. The timing of when I was killing them prevented me from jumping out of the blind to drag carcasses out of sight. Seems there were always deer somewhere in sight.

I also said I'm going to dig out that deer hoist I bought many years ago and never tried. The thing is the bee's knees! Had one horse of a doe that I'd have done my typical back breaking maneuver to pull up into the bed and it hoisted it up & in lickety-split.

Gonna be standard equipment from now on if I'm alone ... which I normally am...lol View attachment 195624 View attachment 195625
Now your getting smart. LOL The older I get, I find myself accepting help way more often than I used to. It's not that you can't, but it just plain saves the old back.

That's the difference between the older generation and the younger generation. The older generation works with his brain, instead of his back.
Apparently... I just entered the "older generation" yesterday...lol😜😂

Hey ... I'm at the range once a month- I go to pick up the shells!!!

Gun Debate . . . I have friends on both sides of the handgun issue, those who believe easy access to handguns is not good for this country and those who believe government has no business dictating ownership one way or the other. I have gained valuable understanding from both arguments. I have made my final decision. Certain Americans, especially those who are more likely to become victims of crime, need to own and become proficient with handguns.

I can't discuss it any further right now . . .
It's my turn to pick up the shells.

To understand the real cost of FREE, let us take a look at the history of the rise and fall of a great empire. One of the empires we should study is the Roman Empire.

The Roman Empire for example had great technology for conquering and taxing people so they were able to create a vast empire. Their difficulties began as people moved from the conquered lands and into cities such as Rome. As the city of Rome grew, the leaders became concerned that the urban mobs would revolt if they had no jobs, shelter, or food. So the Romans fed the people and created great distractions such as the Colosseum to entertain the masses. Soon Rome became a great city of people who expected to be entertained and fed. Rome became a welfare state, a large government bureaucracy. Instead of solving problems, they created more problems. Just as we are seeing today with the printing of trillions of dollars and sending stimulus checks to Americans, Americans are becoming more and more dependent on large government. If that continues, taxes will skyrocket. While it took hundreds of years for the Roman Empire to finally collapse, with today’s speed of money transfers, the great American Empire could fall much more quickly. When we pay people not to work, we are just paying them not to revolt. That was the lesson we should have learned from the fall of the Roman Empire. But then since we do not study history, we are bound to repeat the same mistakes.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, also known as the CARES Act, was passed by Congress on March 27, 2020. The $2.2 trillion stimulus package provided relief for Americans and for businesses who were reeling from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. The package included financial help in the form of stimulus checks of up to $1200 for eligible Americans. Almost two months later, on May 15, the proposed legislation known as the HEROES Act passed by the US House of Representatives is set to provide another round of stimulus checks to the American people. This package, however, is worth a massive $3 trillion and would increase the size of stimulus checks to individuals and married couples with children, but it also includes rental aid and mortgage relief. While the proposed HEROES Act may not pass the Senate, with the rise in the number of positive coronavirus cases, most likely some amount will still be passed.

Some are saying these stimulus checks are exactly what Americans need, while others fear this a test-run for proposed Universal Basic Income. In early 2020, Presidential candidates toured the country pitching socialist-communist ideals, free education, free health care, free childcare, free food, and free money in the form of Universal Basic Income. The how would the “everything for free” platform be paid?. Apparently instead of the Fed printing money and giving or loaning money to the banks, many of the socialists want the Fed to print money and give it directly to the people. With their plan, we will end up paying dearly for “free.” We will end up paying with our “freedom.”

The U.S. prospered and the economy blossomed as a result of identifying opportunity during times of economic concerns. Out of necessity. people were forced to become creative and solve real problems. But now, if we start paying people to not work, all the innovation that America is known for will eventually grind to a halt. There will be no motivation to solve problems if we rely on the bloated government to solve our problems.

Reminds me of George Carlin and some of his crazy observations. He had a ton of them. Two I always remembered, Why do we park on a driveway and drive on a parkway? Why do we get in a car, but on a plane? He further added that no way was he getting on a plane, to windy to hang on, he was getting in it.

current economic slavery is just that, designed to keep people busy and there is nothing wrong with free education free health care and childcare, untill big boys says otherwise. this happend in my country when we joined eu and after few created financial crisis that put our gov into they knees and bendin they backside to people, throughout 90s and after our nation consumed huge amounts of described medicines supported by our gov and msm, while they have had will to keep people busy producing stuff no one needs or want that brakes before you get home with em, they did not want to show people what really is going on

you guys at US have been repeatly told that free anything is bad, even tho theres few countries in a world that has shown other, like libya which was most democratic country in a world with semi direct voting, had most educated people in continent and very good health care etc etc

byrocracy is very good if you want to keep people busy thinking they do something important but those people shouldnt interfere with things that actually matters, like families and food

you cant eat concrete, and takeover of worlds seed banks was horrid, not sure if farmers still cant find proper seeds for they fields

how can you entertain millions of people in cities and keep em happy enough to be satisfied, i dont think thats possible in a long run and feeding em with poisons and injectin em with experimental stuff doubly makes it easier or better, hence my suggestion to fix the world was to teach people what we really are, beings of light that share everything, feelings, thoughts, they are all the same

did you know that before railways in old contintent, each village had they own time dictated by sun

You pig guys... I know you love to huntem & killem but here's some videos from the guy I hooked up with 18 years ago and do some management work with. You may find it interesting; and if you have a farmer or rancher friend who's suffering with pig damage you might make a lifetime gomba by passing on the information...lol

Quite a dangerous game, I wouldn't recommend it.
The front glass is very thick, and busting it might sent splinters all around.
Better open the back cover, take the hammer, and do a gentle blow to the neck of the tube.
This is the CRT TV inner kill zone ...
we tried to get those glasses to explode violently many times as kid, no success there
later on at older age i learned that its nearly impossible, requires glass to be almost air tight when it goes in

Every episode of Gunsmoke started with gunshots. Was quite common for scenes of drinking, fist fights, etc. Just about every episode showed Marshall Dillion or some other cowpoke shooting and likely killing somebody. I probably started watching it when I was six or seven years old, and still watch it today. " NO WONDER I'M SCREWED UP ". Likely, watching Elmer Fudd chasing after Bugs Bunny with a double barrel shotgun, didn't help either. "OH WELL". 🤥
