I see your point. I think it is already a tri-polar world with China and Russia steadily rising while America is falling. We are a divided nation on a rapid decline and a failing economy and the world knows it. China and Russia and the BRIC alliance are moving towards replacing the dollar as the reserve currency for the exchange of oil and once that happens that is the nail in the coffin for our economy. It is the only thing that is holding up the value of the dollar at this point. I think it is getting to the point where we will have no choice but to move out of the Middle East as Russia and China will demand and enforce it and they will have the support of the rest of the world, especially the Muslims, and this will mark the beginning of the end of the Zionist regime. Along with Russia and China, the Muslims are also rising and it does not seem that the US and Israel can do anything about it. My biggest fear is that at this point the zionists may resort to the "Samson option" and take the rest of the world down with her. This is will be Armageddon and prophecy will be fulfilled. But there is still hope, and it lies in increased awareness and the spread of peace and love through the evolution of the universal human consciousness of our oneness and away from the old consciousness of hatred and separatism. It really is that simple and we must have leaders throughout the world who have this consciousness because our future depends on it. Wouldn't it be nice to have our world as our playground where there is no war or hatred?
Wouldn't it be great if Wall street and greed would be replaced with fairness.

Wall Street and greed is the product of capitalism. Isn't capitalism just wonderful! If you want fairness then you really are asking for socialism. Is fairness possible with capitalism?

That would sure be right nice Anne girl.
That civil war stuff. At a thrift store there was a picture book of the civil war. Because of AW on ...topix. I bought that book! Haven't had much opportunity to read through it but did flip through the pages. AW's stories seem more interesting though ! Lol. Yep, imposter , that would be a great evening! It seems like several of you are personal friends anyway so that be a great evening!

Capitalism sure have left lot's of us without. What else can you say. America has never been so let's say third wordly. For lack of a better world. One only need to look at Detroit. This country needs to scrape what we have and find something else.

Civil War story: Camp Nelson (now a National Cemetary) just north of the Kentucky River on U.S. 27 was a Union supply depot and also where over 10,000 African-Americans were included in the ranks after the Emanicipation Proclamation. It only freed the males that would enlist and did not free their wives and children.

Members of Company E. of the 5th U.S. Colored Cavalry were herding about 900 head of cattle to Louisville where they were surprised by guerrillas that proceeded to perform what became known as the "Simpsonville Slaughter" after they had supposedly surrendered.

The guerrillas included Henry Magruder, William Clark Quantrill (Quantrill Raiders) and Marcellus Jerome Clark, alias "Sue Mundy". Magruder and Clark were hanged and Quantrill was captured but died before he could be executed for his deeds.

Wow! No comments for 20 hours! Wow!

We've started home and made a little stop at Laura ingalls wilders birthplace. They've set up a replica cabin. Of course it's pretty small but they werent pack rats with enough clothes to wear for a month or so without doing laundry or toys galore like a lot of families. I don't want to live with a fork or two and a couple of cups to share but I could downsize as could most all of us. Simplify. Simplify.
Good night all.

I simplified 3 years ago when I came back to the old homestead after being gone for 50 years. I converted the back 3 little rooms into one big room with barn lumber walls and no ceiling except for used oak in the apex and 24-7-365 ceiling fans suspended down above the 60 year old poplar cross beams decorated Cracker Barrel style with horse hames, cross cut saw, duck decoys and such. My main part of the house has no attic and appears to be more like a cabin. Bedrooms are more modern. I follow the "KISS" method... Keep It Simple, Stupid... LOL

Dog is back from his tree, more wood added to the wood burner, and a big iron pot of chili cooking on top of that. So I will go back to bed and wait until time to get up and have a chili brunch and start watching old Westerns... We are looking forward to seeing WishBone, Rowdy Yates, and Gil Fabor "headem up, rollem out".... RawHide.......

Your place sounds really neat and unique! The Cracker Barrel style is a great way to display all those old memories and other special items. I love looking at all those things. The ceiling fans, 24-7-365, I understand as some of mine run (almost) continuously. I don't have the old wood but downstairs I have 9 foot ceilings. I have a "plain ole country home" with a few nice amenities. Right now there's 5 people ( soon to be 6) living in the house so space is important. Before my better half comes home to stay all the others are moving out so we will have a lot of space for the two of us!
Theres a busy day ahead for us. At the top of my agenda is a side trip to see the cranberry bogs(?) like they show on the commercials. The season is about over but they tell me there's still a few around and I'm the driver! Lol.

I've collected up a bunch of the old VHS westerns (.25,.50 and$1.00)and also buy various movies from thrift stores and yard sales. When the time comes I'll have that pot of chili or stew on the stove but I gotta have homemade brownies,Moms recipe, for dessert.
Have a wonderful day!!

Not wanting to get the party started for the day I googled the simpsonville slaughter. What a terrible waste. All they were doing was moving cattle to market. During wars I guess there were a lot of mass graves. Particularly during times there's no way to properly care for the deceased and disease is of great concern

There were attrocities committed on both sides in the name of "war" including others such as (others you might want to Google) the Saltville Massacre and Fort Pillow and the activities involved with Sherman's march through Georgia. It was not uncommon for raiders to perpetuate blame by dressing in whatever military Uniform was convenient for the area and when all they were interested in was what could be confiscated for their own use. Much akin to "looters" when some catastrope occurs.

You might also be interested to know that I found an extended version of the Gettysburg movie on Youtube, if you can stand to watch it from a smaller screen for 4 1/2 hours LOL.

....and the young Eastwood of Good, Bad and the Ugly fame! Aawh Yes. Say, do you pick up on the old re-runs of Gunsmoke on the Western channel,#281 around here. Matt Dillon and Miss Kitty sure did look young on those first ones and on some,.....she doesn't have her mole painted on yet! They start around 5:00 and show three different ones everyday. Maingy Festus really makes some of those shows when he came aboard.

Good Evening!
41/2 hours on this iPhone? Oh that would be difficult indeed! Lol .
The cranberry marshes were interesting but the harvest is over. At some point during the harvest it really does look similar to the commercials on TV. Btw. Not all McDonald's look alike. The one I stopped at earlier had a HUGE stone fireplace and there were assorted wildlife mounts. Moose, deer, fish, skunk, and fox. And a large arcade room. Wow
. Well. AW, I hope everyone is doing fine. It's been you and me pretty much the last couple of days. Lol I'm out for the night!

Fort Pillow? Now there's a bedtime story I'd like to hear.
