    You mean we have a black violence problem. Your stats are crap. How many times do i have to post homicide rates by race. Black people commit almost 50% of the murders in the U.S....but oh no. They dont make up anywhere near 50% of the population. Black people commit more crimes. Get over it. So they commit 50% of the murders but only 1/4 of police killings are against black people. Sounds like the cops are racist against white people. How shameful.

    Chapter 33 is holding our summer show this Labor Day weekend at the Heston Steam Museum at Heston indiana which is 1 mile from new buffalo Michigan. Yesterday we were setting up and doing our thing when a car pulls up and this lady introduces herself as Abby O'Neil. She said they live in Chicago and do weekends in new buffalo. They were out for a drive and stumbled across the museum so they decided to stop and see what was going on. When they drove in they started to see lots of red tractors which got them very excited. She told us she was direct descendant of the IH McCormick family. So I asked the connection. Turns out her maiden name was Abby Deering Mccormick, youngest daughter of Brooks Mccormick, former CEO of International harvester. Needles to say several of us IH historians were extatic! We visited and looked at tractors for the next 3 hours. I had a million questions and she answered them without hesitation. What an exciting day! They are planning on coming back on Saturday to the show and she want to ride on some of the tractors. The picture of her is with Eric Best's 30/60 Mogal. Jerry She the last of her siblings living. She told us that her father always kept the girls well informed but were kept in the background from publicity.

    OK people. Most of us like to consider ourselves decent human beings. Here we have a man, politician, who served this country in a war. He's dead. Doesn't really matter if you liked him or hated him. He's dead. He ain't coming back. Let him rest in peace. There is nothing to be gained by either building him up or tearing him down. He's gotta answer to a higher power now. Rick

    Really? 987 people killed by police? Last year? Out of 330,000,000 people? Out of about 10 and 1/2 MILLION arrests? And that's a problem? That's like way less than 1% of people arrested! And 1/4 were black? So 246? Of that 7, that's 7 were not justified. Which means the cops, WITH CAUSE, killed 239 blacks last year. That means that when killed that person was posing a significant threat to others at the time they died. What a cops supposed to stand there and let the bad guy kill you and do nothing? Or worse yet let the bad guy kill them? You do understand how this works right? A cop, or a civilian in some states, can use deadly force to protect themselves and others. And out of 10,600,000 plus arrests only 987 people were killed by the cops. That is an amazingly low number. And yet that is somehow a problem? Tell the bad guys to just submit to arrest. Problem solved. Very seldom do police use force unless they are forced to. Rick

    I got to turn the first dirt of the fall this weekend. Plowing under wheat stubble for fall seeded alfalfa. Trying out a new to me 700 4-16's. Picked it up for $100 at an auction last week. Works good and shined up really quick. My photographer had to take a selfie with her favorite tractor driver ๐Ÿ˜

    HA HA HA you guys are f ing hilarious. I've heard all of those and more. I've been a Ford truck guy my whole life. All of them were great trucks, pulled or hauled anything I asked them to, many times, more than they should have. I love how all of you Chevy and Dodge guys claim how good they are and then proceed to say stuff like I've only had to replace x,y,z.... My current work truck has 250k and has never left me stranded. It's original except for tires, brakes, and batteries. Great truck. It's loaded heavily every day and gets run hard. I'll push my Ford before I drive a bailout motors. Jerry don't you have a Dodge waiting to be rebuilt into a Ford?

    I agree with securing our borders %100. However this tragedy could have been perpatrated just as easily been one of our homegrown scumbags. We have plenty born and raised on our own soil. Illegal immigrant or Citizen scumbag. Unfortunately this is a dangerous world and the focus should be preventing crimes of this nature both foreign as well as domestic. As screwed up as this sounds if this had been the local homegrown Crackhead that did this crime instead of a illegal it wouldn't have garnered this type of attention across the country. I think the focus should be on the crime, not on the immigration status of the suspect. He's guilty as sin no matter where he came from. Now everyone flame away at me

    Friend of mine sent me this today. It's a Tractor Supply Corp video. It's actually him on his 826. The video is playing on a 80 foot screen in Times Square. How cool is that? Had to share.

    By this logic my income listed on my tax return is just a SYMBOL. I therefore request to not have to pay any income tax ever again.... If I see anyone disrespectful of the flag I will do my best to protect it. It's the least I can do for those who fought for me to have freedom to do the right thing if I so choose

    Got this from my wife and had to share. On the first day, God created the dog and said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years." The dog said, "That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?" And God saw it was good. On the second day, God created the monkey and said, "Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span." The monkey said, "Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the dog did?" And God, again saw it was good. On the third day, God created the cow and said, "You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years." The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?" And God agreed it was good. On the fourth day, God created humans and said, "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years." But the human said, "Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?" "Okay," said God, "You asked for it." So that is why for our first twenty years, we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years, we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years, we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years, we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone. Life has now been explained to you. There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I'm doing it as a public service. If you are looking for me I will be on the front porch.

    Rick , you valid points and I respect experiences on borders , I concede you know much more then I . However , here is the problem, there is no solution being forwarded. We have a president with the resolve to go after it one way or other and all we do is fight him all long . All of us hate our situation on border let's unite behind behind him as skeptical as many are if for nothing else to show the USA people want solution to this mess. What is insanity ? Doing same thing over and expecting different results. trump is our only intitial push into this border mess , no one else has the balls if we don't start now we going to loose the battle. Wake up quit standing in your own way Tony
