Like the time some drunk indian bum hit me up for 5 bucks outside the market so he could get something to eat. I said "sure man, no problem" Gave him the cash and as I was loading my groceries I watch him cross the street and go into the liquor store.
Oh well, I tried. :nofunny:

I‘ve insisted on getting them the food myself.

People used to have too much pride to take welfare, unless a real hardship hit them.

Unfortunately, today, many take pride in fleecing the system instead, and it does not seem to be improving.

I fear my Grandchildren will not have it as good as we did, the WW II generation was absolutely the greatest!

Half of our HS is non English speaking, and I don't live near any border or seaport. I fear we will have to reach the straw that broke the Camel's back before most people wake up to the fact that you can not have a Country w/o borders.

The irony is that 30 years ago, when I was between marriages, I went out with a Social Worker from Westchester, and she teased me about living in a place that had no minorities!

Things can change very fast!

Thank you for posting about Scrounging Firewood,, I am tired of scrolling past posts about politics, or homphobic racism.
People stated their ideas and thoughts on a couple issues. No offense but I think statements like yours are a larger problem than anything that was typed the last two pages.

It is funny how some people see "facts" as being racist when there was nothing racist stated or implied.

It also amuses me how they always "play the race card", but then don't provide any facts.

Facts are not racist ... facts are facts ... if you think the facts are wrong, offer some proof.

Attempting to control free speech is what is Un-American!

What I have noiced-
When liberals don't like the facts that you are speaking, they give you negative label; something -ist or -phobe. Doing so, in their minds, makes you a lesser person who is unworthy of their attention, and they are now justified in dismissinig anything you say. In their minds, they have won the argument. Then they shout you down to keep your speech from being heard by others. Whether in person or on social(ist) media... they disagree, label you an -ist or -phobe, then shut you down. They can't have people offering alternate ideas, nor can they allow people to think for themselves.

Ok, back to wood. The pile is getting smaller. Hope to get the rest split and stacked today. Nice balmy 20* out. My neighbor has offered to stop by and help. Need to get back out to his place soon, and process the tops and get them out of the woods.

I rarely get into political stuff over the internet. Waste of time to argue with someone who opinion differs. With that being said, I do like listening to the varying opinions from members all over the states. It takes me out of "my bubble" here SE Pa......

What kind of wood do you scrounge or burn in your neck of the woods in FL??
