Hate is just to strong, how about dislike :peace:

Now your talk-in !! Hey wait----- after thinking for a while I don't think I hate ANY tractors, there are a few that I wouldn't bother to add to my group but I'd pull'em off the scrappers truck for somebody else to fool with.
Now to truly understand the word hate you need to be laying under a baler in 100 plus heat cutting and cussing and pulling the plug from (ya there) now that gets at that "hate" word. Nope I don't think I hate any tractors, now balers oh ya I can list em quick !!

If memory serves me at all, I do believe that not too far back the individual in office gave several new definitions for that particular word listed in #7, and all those youngsters that heard and read those headlines are now graduated or will this year from High School.
Only know of one person that claims to have been able to do #8 and when He returns we are ALL going to wish we were paying better attention.
When it comes to #10 I guess I would be willing to think that serving in the country's military and being honorably discharged would be a pretty straight forward requirement, any actual war experience would certainly add respect....
Ah, but today life is so much easier because all the pretty faces on T.V. save me from having to think at all...
Wait ! Wait !
Thanks dstaggs for reminding us that we are responsible to think for ourselves :thumbs:

I just want to post that we normally don't do the political discussions on the site since they always seem to get heated and out of hand. As long as it stays civil we will keep the thread open.


Thanks George !! It's nice to see this allowed without being slapped down for no good reason.

You should have listed Bozo for President. We need another clown on the ballot.

I can't vote in your elections, given that I'm a Canadian, but I do have to say that your debates this election have been more interesting to watch than any in Canada or the US for a very, very long time.

Hold your horses there Ken! I don't think it's quite as locked up as you think. After all, if the real election is decided by only 24 votes I'll bet there's a recount!

forget the recount I like this election settler a whole lot better,let 'em settle it tractor style!

Methinks they shouldst joust; mounted on modern big box store Gts, on an old rope bridge over a mote, infested with underfed gators, just before sunset on a windy rainy eve in November...IMO humbly submitted, just a passing thought... :loosing_it:

On a serious note, however, as a middle class man, I am very concerned about the future of my daughters looming debt, and she is just in elemetary school. I leave her no debt, but the statesman sure do....

Does anyone think Florida will hang Ol' Chad again this time...? Or have they gone to the hackable "electronic" voting machines too? We took a chance and voted with absentee ballots, Wifey might not go out if it's raining (arthritic back) on the big day and they're probably "lost" already. As you can most likely tell, I'm not too trusting in the tallying of national election votes or anything else the government has a hand in. This is only because I'm a reader of history and there's nothing new under the sun.:D
