  1. Getting buzzed is a regular thing down here in the mid south. We got more bugs. I use to scout cotton for an entomologist and things got fun when a farmer didnt spray when we told him and we had returned days later to check the fields; and here comes the plane. Got many a dose of methyl parathion or some type of pyrethroids when i was 20 or so.
  2. And don't forget the athletic field at the end of the game; "Everyone is a winner today; there are no losers and you all get a trophy"
  3. 21st Century progressive parenting and schooling is behind most of it.
  4. I worked for Farm Credit in the mid 1980's till the mid 90's. Tough times; put a lot of guys out but they had no equity left or working capital. FC is still alive and well here in the Delta area with most of the associations paying a good patronage refund at year end. Most small banks are trying to diversity out of ag unless the directors are mostly famers. And those are selective with who they lend to. The balance are left to the swamp of retail dealers who are pretty usurious in their policies.
  5. 'And once the Union Army came south it was an invasion of the lands worked by subsistence farmers. Prior to the war Natchez, MS was one of the richest cities in the then US. However a majority of the planters were from the NE part of the country who came south to make their fortune.
  6. last time I saw a chain gang it was while riding by Cummins. Parchman in MS was self sufficient for many years; even had a cattle unit.
  7. I figure its going to bleed over into college football this fall; even the SEC. The two Mississippi schools had marches and protests this past week. Being orchestrated from outsiders. Attendance will fall in the fall!
  8. Oh i know. I live in memphis. Where we "renew" socialism every day. A few weeks ago our county commission was dealing with a $14 mil shortfall. Not on commissioner could find savings. 'Because everything is now a sacred cow or essentail service. Ad valorem taxes being used for things our parents generation never imagined.
  9. If a community defunds the police then the taxpayers are owed a major refund of those taxes.
  10. **** of a note that its being overshadowed by all of the sh@t going on in this country right now. If the young idiots only knew about the sacrifice. But that word is no longer or has never been in their vocabulary.
  11. Completely reworked the ac on one of my 5288s last year. Everything was new ; hoses; compressor, etc. Would not hold pressure. Found out it was the o rings and the fact that I had overtightened them. Local ac guy at the Case IH dealer said any fittings you put those little green o rings in should only be snugged. Overtightening compresses them too much allowing leakage.
  12. When I see the ANTIFA youth I am reminded that they most likely live with their parents and are the ******** that sit in phone banks making robo calls for scams. Its the only job most could get. Its because they are idiots and have never done anything in their life; and never will.
  13. Anyone want to guess when the cops and the NG have had enough and shots are fired. I see insurance companies cutting and running faster than a cat can lick its butt once claims are adjusted and paid. Those areas will look like Dresden for a long time.
