  1. Here is a start. Sad that so many have forgot, that so many of our politicians and elites seem to sneer at such faith. The cost is so high for doing so, so very high.
  2. The foundational document of this country - the declaration of independence - states that individuals have inherent inalienable rights (endowed in them by nature, their creator, or God - take your pick) and that such rights are not created or granted by the government, but rather that men create forms of government to ensure that individuals may freely exercise those inherent pre-existing rights. And that when such governments become destructive to those ends then it is the right and duty of the people to alter or abolish such government. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--" One may agree or disagree with the propositions expressed but the meaning and intent of the foundational document of our nations founding is clear - that our rights do not come from a government or a constitution, or a bill of rights - those are merely the mechanisms used to imperfectly attempt to allow individuals to live free and to exercise their pre-existing creator given/god given/natural rights.
  3. to offer to take your wife or sweetie to Chickfila and then Hobby Lobby. She'll thank you for it.......until she realizes it's Sunday.
  4. Circumstances, words, emotion and feelings, and context. We shall fight..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkTw3_PmKtc
  5. So being over 6 decades old, my supervisor asked me during our annual review what my life goals were. So I said, well I wanna be a cowboy. I think my answer was unexpected and caught her off guard. I gathered that from her rather open mouthed gape and stunned silence. Of course I don't want to be a real cowboy - working my butt off in the rain, cold, snow, heat, mud, dust....and taking care of cattle and horses before seeing to any of my own needs. I want to be a movie/tv cowboy looking cool while packing six guns, toting a lever action rifle, and rocking a shotgun. So my question is since I wouldn't be a real cowboy, would that make me a trans-cowboy? ( And I would warn anyone to not under any circumstances put that term into a search engine.) And if so does that mean I am eligible for affirmative action programs? I'm already considering seeking reparations for left handedness.
  6. Of course, I have both, but where is the fun in that?
  7. So for now went with black jeans and jeans (walmart)- have bachelor buttons to make them work with suspenders. Got shirts from goodwill. Then found on amazon a irish grandfathers shirt (inexpensive) and then an engineer shirt (spendy) and an tuxedo shirt (has high collar and ribbed bib design surprisingly affordable). Got a couple of silk bandanas, a puff tie (spendy), and then the most expensive items, a long frock coat (but found on sale and with amazon dollars only cost me 50$), an oilskin duster, and a leather vest. Then an inexpensive mechanical pocket watch, a double fob chain (will use a Mogan silver dollar in a bezel for one fob and a faux mexican fire opal pendant as the other middle fob). Then I have usable black 12 inch motorcyle boots that work, but wanted some nice traditional cowboy boots so got some square toe Ariats (okay that was the spendiest). Then two cowboy hats one black and one ranch tan. Found a red paisley vest for cheap. And suspenders - tan and another black. If I can't make some different outfits out of all that then I am hopeless. Figure can use the some of the shirts, pants, duster, boots, for more regular wear too.
