Being kind is great, this forum is built on the kindness, compassion and caring of the long time and new members of it. The city idiots and "liberals" we speak about are not kind to us, they do not care about us or the time we take to do what we do. These people are selfish, know it all and out to get the best for themselves/families no matter who they have to screw over to get it. There is no amount of kind or niceness that changes them.I'm sorry that you seem to have missed the point of my post. My post was simply about being kind in our postings. I'm sorry you were offended by my request.
Perhaps I misspoke about doing a farmer a "favor." However, these folks couldn't buy an 8-900 lb steer if said steer were not offered for sale by the farmer. The farmer has a right to accept or refuse the buyer's money. When I sell an advertised animal, I am always grateful. I would suspect that most farmers also feel grateful when they sell an animal that they wanted to sell.
I have spent most of my life trying to convince folks to simply be kind. I have lived in countries where there was no opportunity for people to pick between a liberal or conservative party. You have a right to your opinion as does everyone else.
I kinda feel like you are being a troll. You are misreading and misrepresenting the prior posts, possibly on purpose, in order to get a rise out of members. I think perhaps you might need to take your own advice. We don't mind opinions, we certainly have strong ones of our own, but trolling others is out of line.Again, my point is being missed. It was simply about the tone of the posts. So much negativity and name-calling as to present the forum in a negative light. Too many folks balancing huge chips on their shoulder and blaming others. (Oh my - even an old minister can be snarky. But, that's why I retired.) I have seen evil of which I could never describe adequately for anyone to understand the evil that lurks in mankind. That is why I shrink from it and try to convince others to simply practice kindness.
I think perhaps I should retire from this forum, as others have before me, for the same reasons. Blessings to you all.
Thank you.I kinda feel like you are being a troll. You are misreading and misrepresenting the prior posts, possibly on purpose, in order to get a rise out of members.
