    As so far demonstrated, justice cannot come from within, but from without.

    Maybe they’re trying to grind you down.
    Grind all of us down.
    A little here, a little there.
    Like sandpaper.
    1000 grit
    Even very fine sandpaper can change the shape of wood over time when constantly applied from different angles.
    The wood doesn’t realize it is changing.
    But he that wields the sandpaper knows.
    Then, one day, the wood is completely different.
    All of the things not wanted have been ground away.
    Now, a whole nuther wood is revealed and it is what the sander wanted all along.
    Patience, diligence, commitment, continuous effort over time, constant erosion, change for changes sake.
    In the eye of the beholder.
    T’was ever thus.

    I feel a bit ground upon lately myself … but I pretend all is fine until that time it gets shoved in my face it’s not. I mean right here in my face; I know it’s not fine in most of the country but until I cross that mountain that defines my valley, I can pretend it’s still REO time. Jimmy doesn’t seem so bad these days, eh?

    ghost, what’s that url you mentioned some time ago for powdered milk, etc.? I didn’t keep it for some reason. Appreciate if you’d repost.

    A group to build up over the grind. Year I married my beautiful wife.

    Yes, we currently live in a Communist dictatorship, but looking back can remind us of what is being thrown away for being lazy and cowardly.

      That’s a good version Terry, thanks!

    How about this k*iller performance-

    Yes, I fooled around and fell in love. Still in love.

    I have to get a DJT mugshot mug. I failed to get the Spiro T Agnew watch, and the I Like Ike button. Can’t fail on this one – it’s epic.

        Thanks! Related: I read this morning that if a guy Google’s Presidential Campaign 2024 websites, it’s all democrats minus Kennedy, and no GOPe.

        Trust Google to “Be Evil”.

        Be careful with this site. Double check before giving money. I know someone who made a one time contribution and then received unauthorized monthly charges on their Amex card. Also I believe DJT disassociated himself from Winredvas they appeared to be using his name but not for his benefit.

    Depressed, neurotic people (especially single women) are more likely to support D卐M☭CRATs.

    D卐M☭CRATss support policies and messaging that produce more depressed, neurotic people, especially single women.

      i’m a single woman and I do not endorse your message.

      Trump won 2020! Trump 2024!

      Kick out the jams, motherfuckers!!

        Love the MC5 reference!

    Suppose the AmCom’s (american communists) steal ALL of it in 2024, the WH, the majority in the senate and house. What happens next?

    You know that’s a possibility/probability don’t you?
    Have you thought it through?

  • ghostsniper August 27, 2023, 11:35 AM

    Is this not the most beautiful thing you have ever dragged your eyeballz across?
    That root beer quilted maple. !!! WOW !!!
    Gold hardware.

    3 things keep it from being perfect.
    1. Block abalone inlays in the fretboard.
    2. Gold knurled knobs.
    3. Yank the signage around the pickup switch.

      That’s the iconic Gibson profile from the early 50s. I have about 25 years worth of Fine Woodworking magazine and remember seeing multiple color photos of quilted mahogany in one issue. Drool. And then there was this with mention to several women over the years to come have a look in the living room, you’re not the only one in this house with a great set of legs.

    Attended Friday Republican lunch. It was supposed to be speak your mind day of the month. But, the time was “handled” in such a way that the dominant speaker was the local Republican polster with good work connections to Ronald Reagan–smart man. Talked about 2024 being the most important election ever for our Republic. When asked “what effect will the new residents who have not yet received their paperwork will have on the election”, his response was stunning. “We don’t know”. When asked “what are you doing to prepare for this?” His response was stunning–“nothing as of yet.”
    I would like to remind you that this is the group that when they finally got a chance to take over my state their most important focus was “abortion”.
    I suggest to you we know longer have a two party system. If you want your country and freedom back you had better start organizing another party. Don’t forget there are already two more parties that have qualified to be on the Presidential ballot in 35 (+/-) states. That is a first ladies and gentlemen. Who do you suppose is running those parties? Where is the money coming from?

    For me, the question is: WTF is the R party going to do about the current situation: border, Biden, balloting systems, legal action against candidates, etc. Oh, yes, I remember now–they are gonna march forward demanding a complete ban on abortion! Yeah baby–that’s gonna save this country! My prayer is somebody somewhere will come up with one more party to make it on to the ballot–this one made up of Americans trying to claw back their democracy!

      I think the problem, Anne, is in the last half of your last sentence.

      • Joe Krill August 27, 2023, 2:03 PM

        My wife and I belong to the American Eagle party. Only two people on it in America. If you run from the established spineless party, just start your own. They will get the message. How about the Ghostsniper party? How about the American Digest party? How about the MAGA party?
