ya all speak of truth, while bandying about hearsay...
Spoken by the unbiased pillar of Virtue

If there is nothing to see, why are the Dems fighting so hard to keep anyone from looking ???

Speaking of looking, there were multiple tally locations that they wouldn’t let anyone but Dems watch what was going on, but hey there couldn’t have been anything Unusual happening there, now could there have been?????

Ok, now your just making **** up or repeating some crap you heard some other moron say.

I'm done here, you keep deflecting rather then educate yourself, or worse pulling the "what about shizz" usually with some easily disproven allegation.

Keep blaming the Dems and probably immigrants for all your woes, rather then look at the root cause.

IF you still believe after MONTHS of recounts, and lawsuits that the ellection was stolen, you're simply too ****ing dumb to even try to educate.

Whilst in travel mode listening to the radio, I heard a report that lumber prices may have peaked. Should you want prices to come down, get vaccinated. If mill workers stay well, lumber is produced, and for everybody to stay well, vaccination is necessary. Simple.

Now waiting for the anti-vax trolls to appear and post their nonsense.

Awesome! I got vaccinated the first chance I got.I am glad lumber prices will come down because of people getting vaccinated, is this going to work for fuel & gasoline & steel as well?

Could you be more arrogant? That would be something to behold. You sound more like an MSNBC/CNN script writer than a logger.

I suspect fuel will continue to rise at rapid rates, steel at current rates - I have not studied steel pricing history to be fair.

You think lumber prices tumbled because of vaccinations? They were skyrocketing until now - vaccinations started some time ago.

How about thinking before typing a "reply"? If you read the item put out by Hampton, and think a bit and you've got to believe that Covid is real, you will realize that lumber production decreased or came to a halt because mills shut down due to Covid. Remember? Meanwhile, folks staying home, because of Covid started remodeling and building, and using.......lumber.

The virus hasn't gone away. In fact, it is predicted that the India variant will cause problems this fall for the unvaccinated. If the next variant runs rampant because so many potential virus hosts did not get vaccinated, history will repeat. Shortages will happen again. So, maybe you might could be proactive and get vaccinated if you care about such things. Maybe it won't be so bad because so many of us did get vaccinated. Time will tell.

Of course. Lumber just automatically spits out of a mill and goes immediately to the magical store. Don't need them trucks to haul it! In my state, which makes a bit of lumber (don't move here) the vaccination process has been ongoing--everybody did not show up at once to get a shot. Plus, prices have not "tumbled". They have peaked. How about reading a bit more slowly and carefully?

most sound like ignorant hill Billy's, but then most are just hired labor that leave the thinkin stuff to someone else.

or maybe I'm just being mean/honest
Now you are stereotyping. I've had some good, short (cuz it was work after all) conversations in the woods. A memorable one was with a hooktender talking about how we must embrace the weather if we work in the woods. It was one of those fine and miserable days when folks tend to not show up.

Oh I willingly admit that many a logger can be way smarter then they look. But they still sound like ignorant hill billies...

However, many that I have met in the last year especially, have not been the sharpest knives in the drawer. Seems buying a self loader you get to meet the lowest rungs on the ladder of intelligence, folks that will tell you with a straight face they've been at this for 30 years, but can't build a road, can't stack a log pile, can't buck to the correct lengths, can't fall timber without breaking more then 50%, expect me to make a load out of 20 short logs and 2 long logs, expect me to sort out a pile of pulp, limbs, fire wood, rotten junk and mud for the 12 decent saw logs at the bottom, that haven't been bucked and are in fact still tree length...

Most of the "loggers" I grew up with, and have met since then, were just that, hired labor that only know how to solve problems by headbutting it or swearing at it until someone else points them in the right direction. Hel most people in general are only good at 1 maybe two things, and if they are lucky they can make money doing it, unfortunately it makes many of these folks feel like they know more then they do. Which compounds when they step outside their knowledge base and get schooled by someone that does, they don't like it, then react with anger. Its called prideful arrogance.

Sounds like you might be dealing with some people who are on this forum....as in I have a very valuable black walnut tree?
