Where's Wee Drop O'Bush when you need her ?

This thread sounds like something that'd be in her wheelhouse and maybe she could give us a bit of info on what others in her AO use as alternatives to dogs for herding livestock.
Toddlers. There's a reason farm families had tons of kids. :lol:

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

I think both are happening among those I see speaking this way. Some people really think they mean it. Most of them are truly clueless about violence and what really happens when people start getting rounded up or shoot back. Most are venting hyperbolicly and would shift how they spoke if I could ch...

Re: Seattle: The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone

In other Seattle news, a person driving a car drop up the exit ramp, onto a closed freeway, striking 2 protesters. One died yesterday and the other is in serious condition. This is getting some coverage, from national news, whike other parts of are not. The coverage of this one is real weird. First...

Re: New book by D.K. Richardson - Daddy's Girl

I burned through it in one sitting and I enjoyed it. I recommend it to any other ZS members for the small price.

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

Back when I lived in SE Texas (I left there around September of 2006), I actually looked forward to winter because it gave a bit of a reprieve from the constant heat and humidity. The heat, surprisingly enough, wasn't the worst part. It was the humidity that sucked big time. The humidity still suck...

I enjoyed it and I hope they make a second season.

Make sense. I remember seeing some protest (LA, I think?) where they ran out into the middle of a busy highway, and some got hit.

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

Just FYI, I expect parts of the US will shift to a South African model of de-funded public police and a robust private security sector which guards the rich and culls the cream of the Public Police crop with better pay, better benefits, and better working conditions. Just my personal opinion, but I...

Okay, I'm not getting how having to pass through a gate "as part of traffic management and security measures" would imply that this was anything but restricted access and that entry by such a group was trespassing. The legalities of the actual status of the road can (and is) be argued in court late...

Re: Atlanta Walkout

Of note, it seems that Minnesota has a castle doctrine for the home, but not businesses or other such; outside of the home they have a duty to retreat. If they're reducing the police force, I wonder if that will end up changing. Given the guy that wishes he'd given his car keys to a mugger, I'm not...

The information I have, is that the roads were private and not maintained by the city, county or state. It seems doubtful that the city or county would allow this enclave to put up wrought-iron gates, blocking off a public road...but I suppose it's possible. I have seen conflicting information on t...

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

What we have learned especially from civil wars of the last 30 years is elites (successful ones, anyway) have learned to lever people into in-groups and out-groups and force the "neutral" to get off the fence and join a side (for sheer survival). Actually, elites have managed that for a while. Chai...

I'll be in Iowa for as long as it's tenable. Some parts of the PNW & the SE CONUS look good. It's a fluid thing, atm. The gut feeling that I should get out of my little corner of the PNW has been growing. It would be real hard for me to leave the amazing network of people I have here. I don't see t...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

Masks are now mandatory in my region for everyone in an indoor public place, and outdoors when you're likely to pass within 6 ft of someone you don't live with. You can be fined for failing to comply, but a lot of LEO agencies have publicly stated they refuse to enforce it. I hear the number of case...

Re: Speaking of skills

I believe being able to handle suffering is a very basic foundational skill of adulthood.

If you can't handle suffering, you won't do well even in our wealthy industrial society.

The idea of animals being shipped in the mail and dying creeps me out a bit.

I am incredibly jealous of those greenhouses.
