    I don't know how long ago you had this million $ idea but I've had one of these draw length arrows since the mid '90's.

    Although I don't align with him on allot of things all I can say about this is.... Thank Mr. Stewart , thank you for being a voice and a leader reminding us that it is never over.

    Jon Stewart and I share the same Alma mater. He came through about 10 years prior to me. In fact, we lived in houses right next to each other.

    I disagree with Jon Stewart on almost all political views, but he is right about this one. Well said.

    it's not easy, but you have to decide which is more painful. Stay and enjoy the slow boil or leave.
    The desire to stay and fight is honorable; but the fight is lost. All you are doing is sacrificing yourself in a rear guard action while the ones who can leave do.

    Sorry; unless you can get California to break apart there is no hope there.

    My dilemma is being 8 years into a 30 year mortgage. If my truck was paid off I could probably float a 2nd mortgage if I could rent my current house. Problem is, I don't trust humans anymore. Living out of state not knowing if the place is being kept up and taken care of is not something I would want to endure.

    Who knows how long it would take to sell, especially with it being in IL.

    It's not even so much states anymore, the left is turning so radically to the left it's not going to matter which state you live in anymore if they gain control.

    Does anyone think in 20-30 years, when all these young indroctinated socialists are sitting in Congress, we are going to be better off than we are now? I'm not talking AOC, I'm talking the current 14-17 year olds who cannot vote yet. They are going to start voting in the next 4 years, and by the period I mention running for and being elected into office.

    I'll be 45 in August, probably +/- 3 years from being halfway through this life. Hate to think what I'll be witnessing in my final years.

    Not so much a rant as it is more of an observation.. My favorite Mexican restaurant is in a sorta shady area of town. When I get anywhere close to the place around lunchtime all I can think of is a plate of Botana, a couple cheese enchiladas and beef tongue tacos, absolutely heavenly. Today was one of those days. So sitting there chowing down I see this lady wondering around in the empty lot across the street and from the looks of it she was trying to catch snowflakes in her mouth, you know like when you were a kid. Its freaking 80° and the sun is out. So, I'm just thinking crackhead gonna crackhead, right!? But nope, she decided to go next level, methhead. She proceeded to just go ahead and take all her clothes off and jog around the empty lot. Police show up and much like a greased pig at a rodeo she eluded them for a bit, I hated to laugh at these guys but a slicked up methhead must be a police officers kryptonite or she just stank to high heaven. My somewhat rant about this, even methheads are getting better exercise than me..

    Not that it's really funny but we had a similar situation few weeks back coming home from work. Now cant be completely sure but we were goin through town and a car was waiting on us to go through intersection. As we got closer they decided to go and about pulled out in front of us. Then we got to next stop light the same car pretty much went through light and finally stopped in middle of intersection for red light. The other cars had to go around as they sat there. Then on next stop they bout rear ended another truck before getting into right turn lane and stopping once again in the cross traffic lane before just going. And finally came to another red light in the left turn lane went about through then stopping to sit there for a minute blocking everyone before continuing on after few ppl honked and they got pissed and flipped off the person honking at them.

    Like said can't be completely sure but I'm assuming some kind of drug or alcohol was involved. Just really makes ya shake your head.

    Fight until one has to flight. Now if this dumbass state decides to secede (if it can) then lol you bet your ass Im scramming to Arizona. I dont believe in lost causes very much, however secession is one of them.
