Huh?
Don't you worry your little head over it, dave.

Have you figured out yet that "Peoples_Pundit" lied to you?
That you're rebroadcasting Fake News like the useful idiot that you are?
no. It appears to me that Trump and Fox News have been pretty much right all along.

So Dave, I'm curious: is this livestock drive a serious desire, or complete "wouldn't this be cool" fantasy?
It's a wouldn't this be cool fantasy.

Meanwhile this

"Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told President Donald Trump last week that he isn't a target of any part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation or the probe into his longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, according to several people familiar with the matter.

Rosenstein, who brought up the investigations himself, offered the assurance during a meeting with Trump at the White House last Thursday, a development that helped tamp down the president's desire to remove Rosenstein or Mueller, the people said."

Someone please enlighten me as to the difference between a left cunt and a right cunt.

Okay let me back up. Yes I am too lazy to read the indictment myself. I appreciate those who read it for me and give me the cliff notes. Were or were not manafort and Gates indicted for doing work for Donald Trump? That was the interesting part of that tweet to me.

I'm one of the people that did not know this.

A lot of people still don't know or for some reason can't acknowledge Paul Manafort & Rick Gates were indicted for lobbying Clinton's State Dept. through the Podesta Group & Mercury LLC. It wasn't for work he did with Donald Trump. Read the indictment for yourself. Don't be lazy.
So?
Did you read the indictment for yourself?
Or are you being lazy?

Oh - almost forgot...

Lol
I'm lazy at least about that, which is why I said that I'm one of the people that didn't know that.

Seems that McCabe is going to be head number one in the wicker basket

"Washington (CNN)The Justice Department's inspector general referred its findings on former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to the US attorney's office in Washington for possible criminal charges associated with lying to internal investigators, according to a source familiar with the matter."

Added text of tweet because it's obvious that uncool didn't read it. Lol

In any case, the fact remains that RAFH'S questions this morning are interesting to me and they are good questions.

One question he asked was who will take care of the animal operation here in Missouri while I am off in Guyana? Lots of possibilities for that given that it's really easy to maintain, but here's one really radical possibility that would be a real hoot if I could pull it off.

Increase the size of the flock to say 20 Dairy goats and 20 sheep, or maybe even 50 and 50.  Announce a  Guinness Book of World Records Expedition with the goal of being the longest ever overland round trip with a flock of sheep and goats with the goal being travel on foot with the sheep and goats all the way from my location to the village in southern Guyana.

Over land.

On foot.

Maybe it would be better with all Dairy goats and no sheep because then you would have excess food on a daily basis to trade for other food items all along the way and then when you arrived in Guyana, you could trade some of the goats for sheep for your starter flock.

I think the only way this would work would be to publicize it heavily so that you could get cooperation from local authorities in the various countries, not to mention cooperation from landowners to allow the flocks to graze along the way. And even then it might be impossible without some big name sponsor like Jeff Bezos or Richard Branson.

So maybe not Jesus or Gandhi but

Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.



Hey yeah.

Hey Dave - not sure if you realized, but in that speculation, you didn't answer the question.

You answered the unasked question of how you would get the animals down there, but not who would maintain the livestock you left behind.
my Missouri flock would go with me.

"You know what virtually guarantees that you won't become a true hero like those guys? Comparing yourself to those guys."

Nope.

Comparing ourselves to people like this is good because it makes us realize how far short of their standard we fall.  I am not even close to the level of self-sacrifice and love for others that I see in the life of Jesus and the life of Gandhi, but I do see progress in my life. I certainly am closer to being like them in these ways than I was say 10 years ago.

But how does being a right cunt have anything to do with being like Jesus or Gandhi?

Gandhi was a right cunt irt women.

And Alfonso is a right cunt toward me.

Getting back to Rick B ... My analysis of his post is that he is typical of many males - doesn't have a very good "radar" to be able to detect where people are actually coming from.  I've found that in general women have better radar than men.  I have struggled with this issue in the past myself and have had to work to develop a better "radar."

Also, where besides TR can I find people interested in - and willing to post about - the huge diversity of topics that I like - everything from pyramids to bacteria?
21
Okay well thanks, but I'm going to go right ahead and try to be more like Jesus and Gandhi. If you want to come on to this forum and badmouth me and tell me all the ways that I'm not like either of those guys, well, that's your business. But if I were you, I think I would find better ways to spend my time.
Dave, this is the kind of snide dismissal I'm talking about.

I'm not trying to badmouth you when I say that you never will be a King or Gandhi. There's a reason I pointed out that I never will be either.

The fact that you take this as badmouthing, as simple insults, demonstrates my point. I'm not even saying you have to accept what I'm saying. You can reject it. But at least - understand it.

I want to leave off with a quote from someone else that I think of as much closer to a King or Gandhi than either you or me:

"You are an important person just the way you are. "
Great.  Thanks for your feedback.

Do you have any constructive feedback about the topic of this thread?  Again, refer to RAFH's post for an example of this.
As I've said before: I don't have nearly any knowledge in this field, and as such am unlikely to provide anything that helps directly.

I would also be interested to hear your take on RickB's earlier post where he said he thought I am some kind of shyster.  You said you are interested in how people arrive at conclusions (or something like that) so I'm interested to hear your analysis of his post.
My analysis: Your posts show a certain neediness that people believe in what you are doing, even while you deny that neediness. He matches that in his head with the "used car salesman" or "snake oil salesman" type - someone desperate to profit from his audience and move on.

I think his observations are right, but miss something, leading to the wrong associations. He misses that the neediness isn't for people even to invest in what you're doing, but just to believe in it. The distinction is subtle, but RAFH did an excellent job pointing it out.

So I can see where he's coming from, even if I disagree.
Well I think there IS a "neediness" but I think it's neither of those things.  I know how to get people to agree with me.  Been there done that.  And I already have a select group of friends around the US that agree with me about sustainable agriculture - Greg Judy, Cody Holmes, Joe Hopping, etc.  What I "need" from this crowd is just people "who are here" and "who at least say they are interested in science and in sustainable agriculture."  I DO "need" people like that to talk to whether they ever end up agreeing with me or not.  Why?  Well because I LOVE talking about science and sustainable ag and there is literally only one other person in my local friends and family circle that also likes to talk about that stuff and she is very busy so doesn't have much time.

If you ever manage to grow some humility you'll end up thanking us.

ETA: I mean in a non-sarcastic way.
Ben, your moralistic preaching isn't going anywhere. Why don't you read up on some of the details of my plans if you're interested and give me some constructive feedback?

If you're not interested in those details, maybe you should consider posting somewhere else.

Instead of coming on here like a junior high bully, you could ask some intelligent questions like RAFH asked this morning.

Those were some very legitimate questions and are very helpful in getting me to think through my projects carefully.
