    Humor, funniest things your kids have said

    That's a classic right there.

    Humor, funniest things your kids have said

    I'm so old I don't remember any specific quotes from my girls, although I'm sure they said some choice stuff. But a couple of grand kid quotes were pretty good. Oldest grandson and current business partner was at Rural King with me when he was maybe 3 or 4. I needed to look at some tools, but he wanted to look at toys. I told him as soon as we finished our business we'd look at toys, but he threw a tiny little fit - he never really acted very bad. I took his hand and firmly led him to the car, while I gave him a little lecture that I liked him to go with me, but if he was going to act like that we just couldn't do it any more. It was a quiet ride across town to my house. As we got out of the car, I told him I wasn't mad anymore, but if he acted like that he just couldn't go with me. So we're walking up to the house and one of his aunts meets us on the sidewalk. "How you doin, Carter?", she said. He replies "pretty good. Grandpa just got done bein' mad at me". I don't remember ever being mad at him again. Some of you have met him and can understand that. Pretty good kid. He had one other keeper that I can remember. We'd been fishing, and he commented on how a catfish has sharp teeth. I reminded him that they don't have teeth. "Well, they sure have sharp lips."

    Absolutely correct. I believe Atlas is already shrugging.

    Please see my previous post. Just a suggestion.

    Might not want to feed the troll. This just detracts from the original intent of this thread, which is to put and keep this in front of people who give a dam and would like to find a way to help.

    I communicated with Mr. Booyens earlier today. He has an incredible amount of information to share with us on this. He recommended we start with this. I've quoted his clarification of a couple of terms used in this video. "The word “Sangoma” that he uses is the Zulu word for “witchdoctor”. The politically correct call them “Traditional healers”. In case you think the use of the word is misplaced, or used in the wrong age, the men involved in THIS case were sentenced this past week. Muti is the word for “potion”.

    Some interesting history from someone who has deep roots in South Africa. A man named Harry Booyens. I'm certainly learning a lot that I didn't know. "This series of articles seeks to systematically present the historical South African demographic picture for all to see. It is a long read, but the truth is never easy and seldom comfortable. After all, the truth takes hard work. But I hope to make it worth the reader’s while. With this information, non-Black South Africans can defend their rights to anyone. And it is particularly to white liberals in the Northern Hemisphere that they need to defend their right of existence. Those in the Northern Hemisphere capable of independent thought and rational thinking will realize the Formal Media has been misleading them, and has been doing so for a very long time—long enough to have created two generations of teachers to mislead their children."

    Chain saw collectors ?

    What's the purpose of the pipe frame around the windshield? Doesn't look like it would offer much protection from branches and limbs.

    Chain saw collectors ?

    I have an 031AV just like that. The redhead gave it to me for Christmas first year we were married ('77). Made me promise to keep her warm. That it did. Needs a new bar and sprocket now, but I never use it any more. We burn some wood through our fireplaces now, but just a small pickup load a year. I have so much home repair work lined up I can't afford to cut and haul my own. Won't get rid of it, though. It was always totally dependable.

    Before the usual suspect(s) try to discredit this website as being "conservative", I"d like to say I don't give a rip. They're reporting really important information that I'm not seeing anywhere in the msm. “For every one of us, we'll kill five white people. We’ll kill their children, we’ll kill their women, we’ll kill anything that we find in our way.” Mngxitama then beckons the crowd: “For every one of them, we’ll kill how many?” And they chant back: “Five,” Mngxitama repeats, “For every one of them?” and they respond, “Five.”

    I was also taught that throwing dirt up around the base of the stalks would make it harder for a windstorm to blow the young plants over. Not sure if that really mattered or not.

    On the A20 / A26 video, check out the towing vehicle at the 2:21 mark. Looks like a jeep on tracks.

    Bumped this. I posted it originally to make people aware that it's happening. It bothers me too. Just not sure what to do. I'm thinking it's good to keep it near the top. Never know when someone may see it that does have an idea about how to help.
