    Things will probably go better if people can refrain from attacking others. HiB shared a personal story by way of illustrating a point. NOT for the sake of initiating an inquisition.

    And yes,...

    I have purchased and sold many things on CL, but not property. One time I was trying to get rid of an old airstream camper, and I was inundated with calls from people all over the USA. I mean mid...

    Inversion table. Every farrier and building contractor I know swears by them. I got a used one off of CL for $80. I had problems with the pressure in my head, so I just do it very slowly, and...

    HenryisBlaisin' I have to agree that we fail horribly in educating the young to be functional adults.

    How many parents share with their children the household balance sheet? Culturally, we...

    Any idea what it might cost me to put a 5th wheel hitch on my '99 F250 v10? And who would I get to do something like that?

    The Leftovers

    So who's watching it?

    Last night they stoned someone to death. It was gross. They showed more than I would have thought. I kept thinking they would stop showing it, but no. That is the first...

    And he would make an nice pasture ornament!! But alas, no. I am apparently far too easily tempted by a pretty picture.

    Thank You. I need to keep telling myself that an unsound horse is not much fun, no matter how cute and otherwise perfectly suited.

    I don't agree that it is a 'dismal' outlook. Some folks seem to insist that the ocean could be populated exclusively by sharks, if only the little fish worked hard enough to transform themselves,...

    Minor pedal osteitis

    Would you buy a 4 year old 17hh-ish warmblood gelding with a "rounded spur extensor process. Upright angle – minor pedal osteitis. " Short on LF during portions of the vetting. 3/5 flex on LF...

    I am not puzzled by the owner's behavior. Unfortunately, plenty of folks (clients, workers, property owners) capitulate to bullies/jack asses/arrogant punks/etc in the horse industry.

    And the...

    Of course everyone is fond of young, eager, ignorant folks who have no idea what they are really up against. Adults who are paying their own bills and struggling to get by (aka dealing with reality)...

    Well... the business owners COULD, possibly, maybe..... decide that instead of making several millions/year, they really, if they scrimp and scrounge, could get by on just one, or a couple...

    Arrghh.... I try not to think about this. It hurts my head to acknowledge that there are people who prefer others to suffer for the sake of religious ideology. That's just gross. If I ignore this...

    It is smarter to pay for the resulting offspring?

    That's just ridiculous.

    I have to chime in that this not NOT always the case. Plenty of BNT take a lion share portion of the auditors.

    At no point did I say in my OP that the state should provide everything. I suggest that it is smarter to prevent a problem than to wait for it to fester and deal with it later.

    The decision to do...

    I think you are denying the truth. "We" were always a highly sexual society. But previously, men enjoyed sex, openly, and women were required to be ashamed of it. The romanticized notion of "love"...

    My OP made no mention of "rights." It is simply a good idea to prevent a problem, as opposed to waiting for the problem to manifest and putrefy.

    Pasteurization is a relatively recent, man made...

    Agree. People will cling to their world view, no matter how messed up.

    But that is a big issue in society that values 'winners.' All those who do not 'win' are then, what? For some...

    It isn't about playing dumb. It's about the fact that children are very, VERY, expensive. And incapable parents shift that cost onto the rest of us.

    So by your post, I am guessing that you...

    That is a very difficult rub.

    In the USA the idea of valuing one's culture, and one's family, seems unfortunately strong in communities whose values and culture leave a lot to be desired. The...
