Notice Ed Leaman not on much since he had covid. After politics headlining in news the last 4 years and continuing what looks like the next 4 I hardly look at the news and tired of seeing  it brought up on red power. Dave

I like the idea of a politics only thread. I would agree to only post that stuff in there. Have a enter at your own risk policy. 

There is a politics section over on the AC forum. Several members here also are on there too. It is nice to not be censored by big tech.

Still waiting for my stuff to blow with Torq-gard and Hy-Gard in it...................Then come to find out Hy-Tran the original that is the holy water of tractor rear ends, is axed for brand x shell that says Hy-Tran on it???????   Yes, the world is definitely off its pivot!

My favorite post I ever read on here was somebody asked what would happen if he used off brand instead of hytran, somebody commented that the tractor would blow up, your dog will run away, your wife will leave you, and the roof on your house will start leaking. Or something to that effect. I was laughing for ten minutes. I still use that line on people.

Good to see DWV jump in here , In my early days here he had a wealth of letter series information to share. Helped me a lot. I grew up on letter and hundred series but did not know many of the specifics other then sit on them for hours upon hours . Quite the machine in the day.

Around ten years old (1955) would help my Dad changing the M from planting and cultivating mode to under the High crop cotton picker and back in late winter.

@DWV is one of the more knowledgeable on the letter series . Liked the tutorial he had for installation of the TA in my 450 . Way better than the I&T book I have

not sure what to say, ive been battling righteous anger/depression with my work, divorce/family stuff, my truck situation, and people in general, myself included. I ponder much these days and pray a lot. 

With the state of our country and so many people that hurt us,  it takes its toll. In all honesty I believe in my heart so many are weary, tired of fighting the turmoil, tired of wrestling with people and things we are hard pressed to have little to no effect on. 

Since I believe in the Bible it makes sense but it doesnt mean I have to like it and dont feel the effects of it. We have to grieve it and that is not easy.

I think some have left just because it brings up things we are wrestling with and its easier to avoid than keep speaking up and being bullied. 

 my 2 cents worth

I was just checking to see if anything more was said about President Reagan in the post about JB insulting the Coast Guard. I know my dad had things tough in the early Reagan years because of jimmy carter. But being in high school from the early to mid 80's I have good memories of those years and Reagan as president. The post is gone. I didn't see anything offensive in it when I looked yesterday. But none the less its gone.

Since our local small town's cafe closed a couple years ago I haven't gone out for coffee. But when I did, those guys talked about the subject of the day. Whatever it was. Sure there was disagreement's. But everyone was back the next day. Never hard feelings.

Never once did the owner ask people to leave because of the coffee talk discussion. In my mind that would have offended me and I wouldn't have come back. I think that is what is happening here. We are all mature adults and when a post gets deleted that is the same as saying "don't come back"

My 2 cents as well.

The average age here must be getting up there that maybe the reason for some of the disappearance.

The whole web page format is disappearing in favor of Facebook groups a change for the worse IMO.

I have seen several long time web forms full of decades of information on the subject matter disappear when the owner has decided that they had enough of maintaining the site this happened with Polaris Files a long time site on Polaris ATVs and Sleds.

So much for the world wide web storing the information forever.

I have found it easier to find information easer if it is stored on a web page than on Facebook

I think that more are on IH faschismbook groups nowadays. My wife and I quit cold turkey on faschismbook after she got censored in January. The info out there is more incorrect than not on lots of those IH groups. Here most suggestions are closer to being correct than anywhere else I have seen

Facebook sucks. I'm only there for the marketplace but it is a pain also. Do a search and all kinds of stuff I'm NOT looking for comes up too.  Tho I have found a couple cubs I thought I couldn't live without there.

I liked the marketplace for the most part but I am done with it there . My biggest gripe with the marketplace is nobody reads the add and follows directions. I don't have messenger and won't get it after having issues with it using all my battery up. Top of my add said call or text me as I don't have messenger ..... They still message me on messenger . Only way I can see it was to look at my adds and navigate to the message that way . Very frustrating to say the least

Yup I agree, so much BS wherever you go.If not in person on TV, radio, billboards,signs along the road.I long to drive down a back road even though I live in the hills not to be bombarded by stress. Even in you turn offthe radio (which I never have on unless it's Pandora/CDs) you stop at a gas station,store some one has something to say how your dressed, look or now what you're thinking,your long gone to heaven mother and father were thinking and why were you raised with such awful thoughts and beliefs without you even opening your mouth.

My fear is as the Green Nazis get further along Facebook will start censoring groups that are related to fossil fuels.

i.e. any thing with an ICE power plant

I look at the marketplace occasionally even though I don't belong to Facebook. I can still see majority of the stuff, and I know exactly what you're talking about when the ad is fully descriptive and directions for inquiring about it. Theirs either a bunch of stupid people in the world, or they don't follow directions. These types of idiots i assume are the first to call or drive to the dealership and ask questions INSTEAD of opening up the @#$& operators manual and figuring it out for themselves. I had something listed on Craigslist once and said will not respond to emails. What's a couple clown's do? Send me a email asking for my phone number. My phone number was in one of the pictures I had in the ad. I thought ya know what if you're that dense and can't see the picture with the phone number or follow my directions that I will not respond to emails, I'm not responding to you. And I didn't.
