When I read posts here, the opposite happens. And yet we are critical of the next generation. Are we part of the problem? I ask sincerely.
You are so right. The negativity here has run some Damn good people off
One of the problems as I see it is not enough people here get out enough. No travel. Limited travel I agree there are lots of problems we as a nation face but all in all we will make it. We are a great people and have survived so many things that would have crushed other nations
Every time I leave this country and experience other countries I can't help but feel how blessed we really are
I liked this one.

Obviously this did NOT make my day, as when I start a project I want to finish it ASAP. That, and it really messes up my job scheduling. It's bad enough having to deal with the weather, so this is just more aggravation. It was really getting to me and then I had the thought of...When was the last time Uni-Lock's sales exceeded their production? Why...it was almost TEN YEARS AGO!!!! Maybe...just maybe....this, while being a temporary aggravation, is actually a GOOD thing when you look at it on a grand scale! PEOPLE ARE SPENDING MONEY ON THEIR HOMES AGAIN! HALLELUJAH!! THANK YOU MR. TRUMP!!!!!
I was amazed at how smooth of a draw it had. It felt similar to my Elite Answer I had a few years ago.
Hopefully it will bring me a big bull from unit 23 in Wyoming this year.
In my daily life, I don't see the hate, fear and discord between people of any identity that gets plastered everywhere. People hold doors for each other, smile, engage in banter, let cars merge into traffic, etc. Granted, that could be regional but, it's there in my world. Basic human decency crosses racial, gender, etc divides.
My observations as well, here in KS and MO.
I travel more than I really like to both in state and more out of state to lots of places and what I experience is exactly what you describe. The news media and internet seem to be the places that "the divide" theology seems to get the most play.
An example of this was the week I just spent in Birmingham Alabama, historically one of the hot beds for the racial divide in this country. I experiece only normal behavior Considerate and nice people of all races.
The moral of the story, just because someone shits on you doesn't mean they are doing you harm. Likewise, when someone takes you out of a pile of shit, doesn't mean they have good intentions. Either way when your up to your neck in shit, keep your mouth shut.
Great article about a Rodeo superstar who died at age 25. It was 29 years ago in Cheyenne.
It contains some great news that some will appreciate and others will not understand.

Being diabetic, I have to be careful. Being single, I just ate two Nutty Buddy ice cremes. Only female in the house, my black lab Reagan, did not utter a word of disappointment.
You know why guys die younger right? They want to;)
Have fun. !!
GG, we call that the PBFU. Post birdie **** up!!
"“We are disappointed that we will not be able to move forward with Wind Catcher, which was a great opportunity to provide more clean energy, lower electricity costs..."
Lower electricity costs? You mean milk the government teat, don't you?
"....so we could complete the project by the end of 2020 and be eligible for 100 percent of the federal production tax credit,”
In other words, the can only afford to build wind as long as they are receiving subsidies that hide the real cost of wind generation.
Here is mine for the day. Called my area Conservation Officer about the coyote numbers on and near my farm. His response is he is meeting me at the farm tomorrow to set some snares. Wow!
Why, because I did not want to purchase a $160 non-resident license just to get them under control. He agreed. He really extends himself to folks that are trying. MO is full of great wildlife public servants!

"This picture was taken in a pure and raw moment of our son.
Proud doesn’t even come close when I reflect on what I learned about our 8 year old son this past week. Back in March he decided that he wanted to do the Market lamb project for his first year in 4-H. We made sure that he understood that the end would result in one of his lambs most likely being in the Sale at Fair and fulfilling its purpose as a Market animal. He was set on the task at hand. He knew he would get attached to both ewe lambs, who he named Pork and Beans, and he knew where one would likely end up. He surprised us with his tenacity when it came to early morning feedings before school and late nights nursing a sick one through pneumonia. He worked them every day . Taught them how to lead and brace. He measured and weighed feed and supplements as well as making sure they had clean fresh water at all times. I would catch him hugging and loving on them when he would have a quiet moment . There was no doubt that he loved them.
At Fair we could tell that he was very proud of his finished projects . He faced his fears and walked into the show ring with his head held high and gave it all he had. He built a beautiful partnership with Pork and Beans. As a mom , my heart was so full and I was in awe of my boy. I looked at his dad beaming with pride of his son .
Sale day came and we found out that Beans made the cut. Beans and Dalton posed for a picture for their potential buyers in front of a Douglas County back drop, then their Auction number was painted on Beans’s back. At that point, tears started rolling down my sons face. I hugged him and kissed his forehead. But, he was still set on what was to fallow. That night, we watched him proudly walk her around the Auction arena and sell her for a number beyond what any of us ever expected. The incredible thing about 4-H auctions is that buyers don’t pay just what the animal is worth, they exceed far beyond their market value because they believe in our children’s hard work and want to invest in them. He left that auction arena on cloud nine and so pumped for next year.
Sunday came around and we knew it was going to be a rough day . Beans had a color painted on her back which indicated which truck she was to be loaded on. Time came to take her out of the pen and lead her that direction. My heart ached as I watch my child say goodbye to his partner . As much as I tried, I couldn’t help but let the tears stream down my face. My boy gave her many hugs and scratches. His father, fighting his own tears asked if our son needed him to take Beans to semi but, our sweet, courageous boy insisted on doing it himself. The barn was filled with many kids and parents that were going through the same thing. What a beautiful thing. These animals are destined for Market. How incredible that they land in the hands of children who love them and give them the best care while they are here on this earth . I found myself in a strange place. I wanted to fix my son’s heartache, but at the same time I knew how important it was to fallow through with the ENTIRE 4-H project. From start to finish. And even though this was tough, we had to allow him this experience. Sobbing, he loaded Beans on the truck , walked her halter back to the sheep barn where he was embraced with many hugs from other 4-H members wiping their own tears because they to just said goodbye to their partners. And through all of this, he actually thanked us for allowing him this experience.
My son is my hero. He is bigger than I ever knew. My son ran the race and finished regardless of his feelings and emotions. He loved his lamb, but he knew what was important. He raised a great product through blood, sweat , and tears, and he completed his project. He never asked to keep her. He never tried to quit. He gave it his all and succeeded. We are a family who loves to eat meat and he wanted to contribute to that in his own way by raising a Market animal. He will never forget Beans but is ready to do it all again next year. This is what 4-H is all about. What extraordinary kids!"
Not sure why this popped up now since the award was in 2013.
If you asked me to name one good thing obama did in 8 years (or before or after for that matter), I would have a very hard time thinking of one. I give him no credit for this either, but at least he did present the medal.
"With small arms gunfire, mortar rounds and Rocket Propelled Grenades from hundreds of Taliban firing into a small U.S. Army outpost in Northeastern Afghanistan, Staff Sgt. Clint Romesha asked his fellow soldiers if there were any volunteers to help him lead a counterattack to take back the front gate.
He was surprised by the response -- a powerful moment of truth which he would later call the proudest moment of his Army career.
Their outpost had been overrun, Army soldiers had been killed, remaining fighters had been unable to get to ammunition supplies and Taliban fighters had breached the front gate, Romesha explained.
“I said I need a group of volunteers. Five guys who did not even know what the plan was and did not know what I was about to ask stood up with pure grit and determination and said they would follow me anywhere. I told them the counterattack plan,” Romesha told Warrior Maven in an interview."
