Dear oh dear Valor. At least pick the right Dredd film.

I'd note that there are several places where performing Nazi salutes are going to get an immediate violent response. Plus you can pretty much guarantee that most Neo-Nazis are going to be looking for such a reaction much of the time.

My favorite use for goats is, actually, barbecue
I'd have gone for a West Indian Curry myself.

Dave, did you notice how many times Mark said "browse"? Did you notice how he talked about trees and shrubs, and didn't once mention grass?

Dave, there is nothing "peaceful" about Nazi ideology. If they thought they could get away with it they'd be murdering people. In the Jim Crow era, and the 1920s and 30s, and at the time of the civil rights movement, they thought they could. And we saw what happened. People who stood up for their rights were intimidated, beaten, tarred and feathered, people were fucking lynched Dave. I presume you've heard the song "Strange Fruit"? You do know what its about don't you?

I know your Constitution enshrines the right to freedom of speech. But it doesn't enshrine any right to consequence-free freedom of speech. And one of the consequences of shouting "Jews will not replace us" and "Blood and Soil" in a public place, is having your fucking Nazi shins kicked in.

I'd also note that for people who lived through the Holocaust, and the atrocities committed by the Klan and other sundry white nationalists chants of "Blood and Soil", and "You will not replace us", and the like are very far from fucking peaceful, quoting approvingly as they do, the people who organised and carried out the systematic murder of over 6 million people.
and the people who opposed them that included Communists are okay in spite of the fact that they systematically killed far more in Mao's China and Stalin's Russia. Gotcha
Dave most Communists these days don't espouse the systematic killing of anybody. Neo-Nazis still do. There's a difference between people who espouse the common ownership of the means of production, and people who support totalitarian regimes that also espouse the common ownership of the means of production. There is not a difference between two groups of people who march in the streets chanting "Blood and Soil" and carrying the same flags 70 years apart.

It's not "Davehastobewrongism" its "ifallyouhaveispasturewhydidn'tyoustartwithfuckingsheepism".

Well, the answer to that is that originally, or at any rate at some point, Dave was all over "agroforestry" and "Mark Shepardizing" his 10 acres.  Then he figured out, I guess, that towing a "flerd" round a piece of woodland wasn't exactly a goer.
Actually Mark Shepard does what I do now - rotate grazers through alleys flanked by woodland.  My "let's try dragging them through the woods idea" came from a professor at Lincoln University in Jeff City Missouri called Dr Charlotte who won a $400,000 grant for studying goats in the woods. I tried it for a little while and it could be made to work, but I ended up liking Mark's idea better from several angles.
Apart from the bit where you didn't use grazers.

Dave, goats aren't grazers, and your pasture is not an "alley flanked by woodland". its a fucking field. Mark Shephard doesn't give his goats (does he even have goats? Or is he using sheep, you know, an actual grazer?) "a nice view of the woods". They're in the woods. And if he is using goats, does he put them in a tractor? Or does he fence off sections and allow them to roam freely, where they can browse on the understorey shrubs, saplings, etc?

I've got news for you people... Real news, as opposed to fake news. Having them graze tall grass with seed heads and giving them browse (tree hay) as a supplement is a hell of a lot closer to Nature than having them graze the typical short, overgrazed pastures in my area and supplementing with massive amounts of grass hay and grain. Do you guys really believe that the typical goat owner in America truly allows goats to browse as they would in nature? If you do, I have a bridge I would like to sell you.

Can't you at least try to be consistent? First you make them "graze tall grass with seed heads" = grain, then, in the same sentence, you sound like grain = bad. In the next sentence, you agree that goats browse in nature, which you deny them in your tractor.
Consistency has never been Dave's strong point. Other than being consistently inconsistent.

"Mimicking nature" says the guy making browsers graze,

 :happydance:I haven't read it. And I have a.better idea of what's in it than Hawkins.

Dave, as everyone has said, it was a "Unite The Right" rally. Not a "please don't move our nice statues" rally. Was it? Was. It. Dave.?
15
Hey Dave. Since you didn't watch the videoes from Crash Course, here's another couple for you to ignore.

Dave, did you read, or just Hawkins Trump's statement? Look again, particularly at the sentence immediately after the part you bolded. He explicitly says you had neo-nazis and white nationalists in that group, along with "many other people". What is that supposed to mean other than these supposed "very fine people" were marching with the fucking Nazis?
17
Because there were Nazis on the same fucking march you moronic fuck. They might have been at the back, or the front, or in the middle, and all the "very fine people" somehow didn't notice them or managed to avoid standing next to them, but they were fucking there. As all the news reports say. There were a bunch of them with Tiki Torches and change of "Blood and Soil" the night before. Do you think they all went home and didn't go on the march the next day? Because that's just bollocks. Everyone knows they were there. David fucking Duke was there and says he was there and was disappointed in Trump' "clarification". If you were there that day, marching in support of that cause you were marching with Neo-Nazis, and fascists, and White Supremacists.

You seem to be protesting a lot about this Dave. Why? Were you there? Would you have liked to have gone, but couldn't make it?
18
Dave, our point is that you don't get to be called "a very fine person" when you march with actual fucking Neo-Nazis and white supremacists who the night before were changing "Blood and soil" and "Jews will not replace us" and who then kill a peaceful protestor. You don't get to be a "very fine person" when members of your "side" charge at unarmed representatives of faith groups, and you do nothing to stop them.

You want to be a "fine person" and still want to keep Confederate statues (why? Most of them were put up in the Jim Crow and Segregation eras as deliberate messages to non-Whites about who was in charge) then as soon as you know Nazis and White Supremacists are turning up then you tell them to fuck off, and if necessary cancel the march. If you're not the ones planning the march then you do your due diligence and find out who is, and, if its the Neo-Nazis and White Supremacists, You. Don't. Go.

Bright sunshine is a pain in the neck for shadows they end up being really hard with no gradation between light and dark. A nice cloud just in front of the sun is what you want to diffuse the light. Or a reflector to bounce light back up.

Neither Hawkins nor Trump can bring themselves to call out the people* who marched with Nazis in Charlottesville because they were on the right team, and those protesting against them were on the wrong team.

* very fine people
you are lying about me here. It's a subtle lie where you use Spin and innuendo. I would never defend and never have defended Nazi ideology, but I will always defend people's right to speak their mind and to March and organize peacefully.

I absolutely denounce Nazi ideology, slavery, and violence such as driving the car into the crowd.

As for Trump's comment about very fine people I never accuse or defend a Man Without first hearing what he has to say for himself about the comment. And I have not read anything about what he was referring to, so I have to withhold judgement at this time.
He was referring to the events in Charlottesville, where one side killed a woman with a car, and paraded through the town with Tiki torches chanting "Blood and Soil". If you think anyone marching with them is a "fine person" then your definition and mine will never line up.

Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse
In continuing news on the Trump visit cancellation, Madame Tussauds are trolling him.

As is J. K. Rowling.


This is what we do when nothing's happening. Can you imagine what would have happened if he'd actually turned up?
22
Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse
It's an excuse because he didn't want crowds throwing eggs, rotten fruit, bricks, that sort of thing at him. Plus he's antagonised the elected mayor of the relevant city, and there was a yuge petition against him coming on a state visit, loads of MPs demanded he didn't come, etc. And that was before the PM gently suggested retweeting videos from Britain First was a bad idea, and he shouted via twitter at her.

Basically he'd have got the traditional Cable Street Welcome we give to fascists.

EMBARRASSMENT

is an awesome and powerful tool ...

As is ...

EXPOSURE

James Damore is using these tools right now against Google ... https://www.wired.com/story/james-damores-lawsuit-is-designed-to-embarrass-google/
And there were quite a few people using those tools against the South.

Didn't work.

Presumably Churchill should have tried to EMBARRASS the Nazis into giving up Poland.

Uh ... no.  He rightly went to war.  And the North would have rightly went to war if the South had invaded some northern state and taken it over.
Interesting. So now the concept of states is important to you. How is that not "wanting to look good on the world stage"?

Dave, do you understand that the South (or the southern states, or the slaveowners) was attacking someone every time they whipped a slave? Every time they separated a family? Every time they chased a runaway? Every time they raped?

Why is violence "allowed" by you when another state is attacked, but not another person?
Churchill wasn't trying to look good on the world stage by not letting some territories go independent.
Tell that to the Indians, Bangladeshis and Pakistanis Dave. They have a much less rosy view of Churchill.

Links or it didn't happen Clastie.

I provided the link to the celebration above.
To your book on Amazon you utter fuckwit. And to anything indicating you'll be signing anything there. And no, ranting in the corner with your underpants on your head and waving your book around doesn't count.

Lol ... the flailing is awesome... please keep it up
Poor dave. Can anyone help dave with this?
May I raise the possibility of going to his novel and repeatedly beating him with a cricket bat?
