i can say for sure that there are more potheads online, many on
gun and outdoor forums, than you might realize.

many years back there were times i'd volunteer to hand out flyers/brochures
at some of the local gun shows for NRA, SAF, etc. and i really saw a lot more
apathy and animosity regarding those organizations than i ever thought could be.
there were more than a few of those ". . blankety-blankin' NRA ain't nothin' but
a scam. . " and " you people are idiots! !  ain't nobody comin' and takin' my guns away! ! "

JMHO- folks these days are more interested in dallying with their phones and
guzzling beer than they are trying to protect their rights as citizens.
they'll have to do without and lose many luxuries before they see the light.

and no! ! !  I am not a paranoid survivalist  :bangheadonwall:

Problem with the authors logic IS
when those immigrants came they brought their work ethic with them and they worked to build a better life.

The ones coming now are only bringing their out stretched hand toward the great savior aka US GOVT looking for all the free stuff they can grab.

Oh and where in the policies mentioned does DT or anyone mention “white” but the author seems too often.

all those folks back then (my own ancestors included) managed to thrive within a generation
without any kind of government tit, and raised kids and paid off houses and other property,
but these latest folks can't ?
i don't see it

just me-
i don't want anyone coming here just for work.
i want folks that genuinely want to be an
American citizen, and that will have a vested interest
in the success of the country, and won't get sloshed
and haul butt back across the line when they kill
someone with their trooka dribeing de wrong way down
the street, or gun down their girlfriend's
husband outside of the cloob or the like.
i personally know maybe 6-10 genuine naturalized citizens,
and they're some of the finest, most patriotic Americans
i've ever known.

goal toward citizenship ? - yes
just sucking up milk and honey ? - NO

check at feed stores for notices.
most all of 'em have a bulletin board where folks post
thing for sale and hay and such.
i haven't been in the co-op in a long time and i can't remember
if they had one or not

. . . What he really needs is to be taken behind the courthouse and given a stern lecture about rights. Not the firearm kind of rights but the arm/fist kind.

^ ^ ^ pretty much ^ ^ ^ ^

we just had some of this on the other side of the metromess, but
i can't find a story about it to post. some people were making a
"rap" video with airsoft guns and "vests" and the police were called
out. they'd also wrapped up bags of sugar to look like parcels of dope
as props

get yourself some of this-

i keep this for "emergencies" and camping.
works really well for removing the stink and you
don't need a lot of water.
i think they originally developed this for hospital use.

BPS has it, but a small bottle that costs more

the problem is the people that pay the gouge prices.

i heard a lot of the "well i gotta have some .22 ammo
no matter what i have to pay. . ." and the " i'm just
gonna throw away all my .22 firearms. . ."
back not too awful long ago.
i also know more than a few that paid many dollars for AR's
during the obama panic that are now spider condos.

i had a large GHO glide past me about 6 inches from my
nose when i was 15 feet up in a hang-on bow stand one year.
it was totally silent and scared the hooey out of me.

lots of screech owls in this part of the world

I “think” you need an AG exempt number to save sales tax. I know I did to not pay tax on Tractor. I dont have one and dont currently meet the state comptroller requirements for one.

May be some exemption for livestock trailers dunno never bought one.

Hope it is so Tango.
Anytime you can avoid the “tax” man is a good thing.

^ ^ ^ this
ag exemption can be a tangled web, and i'd advise you to steer
way clear of it if there's any way you can


3)  pick your Parent's brain about their lifetime  (I lost my Dad when I was age 6 months and I failed to have extended talks about my Mom's life and that of my sad

this ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ is very important ! !
ask questions of any other older relatives too. any elderly person who'll talk to you as well.

i'd have saved more money instead of spending it

most of the uproar here was over a man that ran from the troopers
and struggled when they tried to cuff him. the news reports i saw
showed him still struggling on the ground after he was already cuffed.
they're all huffy because they thought too many troopers showed up
for one man even though bystanders were gathering around as if to
free the suspect or make trouble for the troopers. he did try
to run inside his mother's house even though they were yelling at him
to stop

there are folks that will transport your stock from A to B,
but as said ^ ^ ^  most rural vets will come to you.
there should be at least one in mineola or quitman or
somewhere not too far away that will come out. ask your
farrier. they surely know of one.
FWIW i know some folks in canton/edgewood that do, but
they might charge more than you want to pay. they usually
do cross country transport.
