Well, I just wish he would come across the sea on one of his trips. I would love to take him fishing and spend the day filling the area with bovine feces.

Very proper iddee, very proper way of putting it indeed!  I would love to be in on that, a good day of fishing, along with a good day of shooting the -B-U-L-L- .

PS Cider, shooting the bull is an American way of saying Shooting the feces, cutting up, laughing, having a good time etc.

Next contemplated trip is to drive down the US East Coast in the fall, another SKI jaunt, (at least they encourage us! :smile: albeit with fixed smiles :cheesy: will have to be after the RV tour of Ireland though, the OH wants to look up some relations.

Not more BS there's enough from you two on here as it is :smile:

What's good for bees is usually good for mankind. Doesn't that mean sharing?

Tour of Ireland sounds great!

Though I didn't know it was your birth sign, I was kidding you about the crab. The door was open so I went through. I figured you would like that.   :happy:

Hi Folks,

Where do I start?

Sandy O'Crazio Cortex!

"The seventy percent of New Yorkers who supported Amazon and now vent their anger also bear responsibility and must learn that the silent majority should not be silent because they can lose to the vocal minority and self-interested politicians. Click the link:
https://archive.fo/NV1fa#selection-1331.0-1331.243

We can't just sit back and wait.

She predicted that the planet would face ?disaster if we don?t turn this ship around,? claimed there was a ?scientific consensus? that ?the lives of children are going to be very difficult,? and said that young people were wondering, as a result, ?Is it OK to still have children?? Plese click the link:

"And I'm like, 'You try. You do it. Cuz you're not. Cuz you're not. So, until you do it, I'm the boss.' How about that?
Please click the link:
https://www.dailywire.com/news/43922/aoc-declares-herself-boss-thanks-climate-change-ben-shapiro

She's the crazy ex girl friend!

How far do we let these maroons go? The silent majority may become silenced forever.

 :cheesy:
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

From hair stylist to Congress, only in USA.  Except wait,,, Venezuela, Murado, the President,,, do you know his experience, his credentials???

He was a bus driver, yes a bus driver that got elected to the head of the teamsters union.  From being president of the truckers, bus drivers;  then on to being president of a country or Dictatorship.

Venezuela and New York have one thing in common. 
Bless the Beekeepers.  Dealing with venomous insects takes courage, patience, dedication and a desire to be with nature.

Good point(s) Van. Not sure anyone could get much lower ... maybe a community organizer? ...  :wink: :cool: :cheesy: :cheesy:  :cheesy: ... sorry, couldn't resist!  :cheesy:

On a serious note: it's scary that so "low qualified" individuals can get elected to such high office so fast. ... imho

IDK.  I don't have a problem with people having little political experience and becoming the leader of a country.  The only real practice for the job in the US is state governor and our results with those have been mixed.  The ability to lead is a must and it is not something most people can learn.  They can do it or they can't.

 Truman is a good example.

He had military experience and he was recognized as a good leader with innate leadership ability.  He was a leader in the Senate even as a junior.  Even so, most people didn't know who he was and those who did didn't think too much of his abilities.
  He was chosen as VP as a throwaway, not for his skills.  He got a heaping pile of CR dumped in his lap when FDR died and he stepped up to the plate. 

I'd rather have a Truman than a Carter any day even though on paper Carter had the better education and executive experience.

They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else.

Kathy - you are correct. I guess I meant the lack of leadership experience, or the lack of any resum? at all for some of these (uh-hem) "individuals" - is what bugs me. I should have worded it better. Anyways - its all good. Cheers!  :grin:

I understood what you meant Alan, but again, we are blessed to have Kathy here. Her answer would easily help guide a person who might not have understood, back on the right track.
