A friend of mine wrote this just for you never Trumpers (Biden/Harris fools)...

If you are a liberal who can’t stand Trump, and cannot possibly fathom why anyone would ever vote for him, let me fill you in.

It’s not that we love Donald Trump so much. It’s that we can’t stand you.

And we will do whatever it takes — even if that means electing a rude, obnoxious, unpredictable, narcissist (your words not ours) to the office of President of the United States — because the thing we find more dangerous to this nation than Donald Trump is YOU.

How is that possible you might ask?

Well, you have done everything in your power to destroy our country.

From tearing down the police, to tearing down our history, to tearing down our borders.

From systematically destroying our schools and brainwashing our kids into believing socialism is the answer to anything (despite being an unmitigated failure everywhere), while demonizing religion and faith, and glorifying abortion, violence, and thug culture.

From calling us racists every time we expect everyone of any skin color to follow our laws equally to gas-lighting us about 52 genders, polyamory, grown men sharing public locker rooms with little girls, and normalize the sexualization of young children, you simultaneously ridicule us for having the audacity to wish someone a “Merry Christmas” or hang a flag on the 4th of July, stand for the national anthem, or (horror of horrors) don a MAGA hat in public.

So much for your “tolerance.”

(See why we think you are just hypocrites??)

We’re also not interested in the fact that you think you can unilaterally decide that 250 years of the right-to-bear-arms against a tyrannical or ineffective government should be abolished because you can’t get the violence in the cities you manage under control. That free-speech should be tossed out the window, and that those who disagree with your opinions are fair game for public harassment or doxing. That spoiled children with nose-rings and tats who still live off their parent’s dime should be allowed to destroy cities and peoples livelihoods without repercussions. That chaos, and lawlessness, and disrespect for authority should be the norm.

This is your agenda. And you wonder why we find you more dangerous than Donald Trump?

Your narrative is a constant drone of oppressor/oppressed race-baiting intended to divide the country in as many ways as you possibly can. You love to sell “victim-hood” to people of color every chance you get because it’s such an easy sell, compared to actually teaching people to stand on their own two feet and take personal responsibility for their own lives and their own communities and their own futures. But you won’t do that, you will never do that, because then you will lose control over people of color. They might actually start thinking for themselves, God forbid!

This is why we will vote for Donald Trump.

Not because he is the most charming character on the block.

Not because he is the most polite politician to have ever graced the oval office.

Not because he is the most palatable choice, or because we love his moral character or because the man never lies, but because we are sick to death of you and all of the destructive crap you are doing to this once beautiful and relatively safe country.

Your ineffective and completely dysfunctional liberal “leadership”(?) has literally destroyed our most beautiful cities, our public education system, and done it’s damnedest to rip faith out of people’s lives.

However bad Donald Trump may be, and he is far from perfect, every day we look at you and feel that no matter what Donald Trump says or does there is no possible way he could be any worse for our country than you people are.

We are sick to death of your stupid, destructive, ignorant, and intolerant behavior and beliefs — parading as “wokeness.” We are beyond sick of your hypocrisy and B.S.

We are fed up with your disrespectful divisiveness and constant unrelenting harping and whining and complaining (while you live in the most privileged nation in the world), while making literally zero contributions of anything positive to our society. Your entire focus is on ripping things down, never ever building anything up. Think about that as there is something fundamentally very wrong in the psychology of people who choose destruction as their primary modus operandi.

When Donald J Trump is reelected, don’t blame us, look in the mirror and blame yourselves.

Because you are the ones that are responsible for the rise of Donald Trump. You are the ones who have created this "monster" that you so despise, by your very actions. By your refusal to respect your fellow Americans, and the things that are important to us.

You have made fun of the “fly-over states,” the people who “cling to their guns and religion,” the middle class factory workers and coal miners and underprivileged rural populations that you dismissively call “yahoos” and “deplorables.” You have mocked our faith and our religion. You have mocked our values and our patriotism. You have trampled our flag and insulted our veterans and treated our first responders with contempt and hatred.

You have made environmentalism your religion, while trashing every city you have taken responsibility for. You scream from the rooftops about “global warming” and a “green new deal” while allowing tens of thousands of homeless people to cover your streets in literal sh!t and garbage and needles and plastic waste without doing a single thing to help them or solve the environmental crisis your failed social policies are creating. But we’re supposed to put YOU in charge of the environment while gutting our entire economy to institute this plan when you can’t even clean up a single city??

You complain — endlessly — yet have failed to solve a single social problem anywhere. In fact, all you have done is create more of them.

We’ve had enough. We are tired of quietly sitting by and being the “silent” majority. So don’t be surprised when the day comes when we finally respond. And trust me it’s coming, sooner than you might think. And also trust me when I say it won’t be pretty. Get ready.

When Donald Trump is reelected it will be because you and your “comrades” have chosen to trash the police, harass law-abiding citizens, and go on rampages destroying public property that we have all paid for and you have zero respect for.

When Donald Trump is reelected it will be because we are sick of your complete and utter nonsense and destruction. How does it feel to know that half of this country finds you FAR more despicable than Donald J. Trump, the man you consider to be the anti-Christ?

Let that sink in.

We consider you to be more despicable, more dangerous, more stupid, and more narcissistic than Donald Trump. Maybe allow yourself a few seconds of self-reflection to let that sink in. This election isn’t about Donald Trump vs. Joe Biden.

This is about Donald Trump vs YOU.

So if on the morning of November 4 (or more likely January 19, by the time the Supreme Court will weigh in on the mail-in ballot fiasco that we are headed towards, which is the primary reason the Democratic Party is in full-blown panic mode over a Trump nominee filling the new vacant seat on the Supreme Court by/before the election), and Donald J. Trump is reelected?

The only people you have to blame is the left-wing media drones and yourselves.

You did this.

Yep you Biden supporters!!

Last night, a 6 year old boy begged God for his mother's life. She was one of the deputies shot in ambush. Today, the NFL will again honor and praise Black Lives Matter, the organization that stood outside the hospital chanting "we hope she dies". Never ever talk to me about the NFL, or "pro athletes" again in this life time. Sick disgusting trash, and supporting them is endorsing them.

Off the Topic! / Too Big to Fail?
« Last post by joasis on August 24, 2020, 01:22:29 PM »
I wrote this on another forum, thought I would share what I see coming.


Too Big To Fail
Some have taken a position that New York City is "too big to fail"...because of many factors. The arts....theater...artists....museums....tourists.. ...restaurants.....you name it.

These are different times now....but here is my take:

Coming from Oklahoma, I have seen what happens when companies close up shop....and the progression as farm size increases, but fewer farmers.....and the rise and fall of oil production.....

We all know what happened in rural America....small towns for the most part go away...schools consolidate...stores close...people leave....because when the base of a community is gone, or transitioning....the very reason for the town to exist changes. Demand for grocery stores goes away...barber shops, hamburger stands....gas stations...feed stores....and on and on....

In Oklahoma, with a few exceptions, everything here is based on oil production and agriculture. Farms get larger, less farmers, and towns that supported the farmers died. Oil industries move away, and the employees move with them....towns get smaller....when they both leave...there is nothing remaining to keep a town there.

Ok, so what? Easy to see how a town of a few thousand, or many thousands can die....right? But never a city. Cities are diverse, right? And these are cities of millions......

So what will be the next phase of changing America? Technology.

New York City is the center of the financial world...Wall Street, banks, trading.....all of it....but how much depends on being there in person? What does the trading floor even look like on Wall Street? Everyone knows it can be virtual....so you can live in Oklahoma and be a trader on Wall Street....for instance...no need to move and rent an apartment and pay the exorbitant taxes required to live there or commute from NJ or CT to work there.....work from home is now a reality, and good or bad, Covid and panic has shown this to be real and here and now.

How many companies will continue to buy or rent high dollar office space when they can increase the bottom line by having employees work from home or remotely? These are the jobs that fuel NYC and the companies that fuel the commercial real estate....and if they have discovered they don't need a presence in the Big Apple to make it, or they realize higher profits and less in taxes from leaving, what is to stop them from going?

So all of the financial firms begin to bail....as they have no need for even an office.....then what happens....the restaurants that cater to them begin to close....and those employees have to leave since no one will be building new restaurants....and the glitzy stores that sell the upscale fashions? They will go since the people who work in the financial district won't be buying new fashions for a look they no longer need.....janitorial services will shrink....the offices will be vacant and no need to clean....apartments will have vacancy rates spiraling upwards...real estate agents will not be able to sell anything because there will be no buyers........

So...is a city "too big to fail"...really? Ask someone who has seen it happen in small scale across America.

NYC doesn't make cars, or ships....or anything to soften the blow of loosing the largest segment of their economy, and without the massive cash flow of Wall Street, who will the artists play for? Theater for who?

I am putting this here to point out that the economy is like a string of dominoes.....diversity is survival....but can NYC transition to? Tourism? Not likely....not in numbers that can sustain the city...

So .....read about East St Louis some time.....NYC is not "too big to fail" in my opinion, and it isn't stupid to contemplate the future of cities or towns or states.....

Off the Topic! / What the future will look like.
« Last post by joasis on August 14, 2020, 06:56:01 AM »
Long ago, in my college years, I was introduced to the story of East St Louis...and what made the city grow, and then collapse....and the term "white flight".....when the white population would flee the cities to avoid crime, lowered property values...and of course, integration of the schools....the melting pot of cities.....


And now....as Tucker Carlson spent some time last night.....the new white flight are and will be the citizens fleeing the taxes, crime, filth, and diminished city life......that is, those who can afford to flee. Who will be left? The poor.


Democrats brought this on, and now.....what will they do? Pass laws that you can't leave? Parents can't send their kids to school....the jobs people thought they had to live in the city to have now can be done from home......or remotely....opening up the possibility of living where the air in clean, Democrats are not ruining the quality of life, and mostly, they can be safe. Cost of living is way lower.....


So what will the "new normal" look like? Crime infested cities will have a smaller population for criminals to prey on.....apartments and homes will be 50% vacant....and rising.....imagine what this will look like in only a year.....and those left behind because they can't flee....they will be the victims of the Democrats......

Projects and Plans / house windows
« Last post by terracefarmer on July 10, 2020, 05:45:28 AM »
I live in a re remodeled 1870's house, its been remodeled and changed so many times over the years, not much is still original anymore so I'm not even sure what vintage it would be called.   

It has the old two window style in it, the rope cable and weights in the sides to aid the lifting of the widows themselves and have storm windows over those or in the summer screens on instead of storm windows.     Well after about 85 years and many window scrapings and repainting, its about time to make new storm windows, the frames are getting rotten and coming apart.     

The question I have is this, what wood to make the frames out of? or is it time to investigate some of the plastics or composite's to build with??     I'm not really into the whole retro thing, so it has to remain true to the period style at all, I'm more into the whole, simple and cheap to last sort of thing myself.      Toss in I have many thousands of board feet of sawed lumber on hand, all hardwood, such as red and white oak, walnut, some elm, cherry, bur oak, black ash, hard maple and a few others.       

Over my lifetime, since I grew up in this house I now own, it was once thought to update the windows to something new, which I'm glad nobody ever did do, since these have outlasted anything else five to one from what I've seen over the years and for the most part these are still fully functional and can remain so for years to come yet, but its getting time to think about doing something to either renew the rotting parts or build complete new frames and reuse the glass.     

Looking for suggestions and idea's.    Thanks

Projects and Plans / Garage build
« Last post by A.O. on June 06, 2020, 06:40:36 AM »
OK, you guys know I like talking with pictures, but seeing as I can no longer post them here with out a tutorial and a 27 page instruction booklet along with adding 3 new apps to my computer I would have to learn... I thought I would post a link over to another forum I'm on that is more picture friendly. IF this is not acceptable I apologize in advance and will understand if it gets deleted.

Anyway, I needed room in my larger barn so I wanted to build a garage to put my mowing/yard equipment in, all this but the plywood roof and soffits was lumber taken from trees off my place and run though my little mill.. have a look if you want.
