Everything is great here in the United States. It is obvious by all of your posts that your land is being taken over by savage foreigners who are hell bent on destroying your country. Seeing how our countries are not that far away from each other I have been forced to prepare for when the savages over throw your people. Don't worry if you can make it down here and have a useful skill we will welcome you into our compound and provide you safety for trade.

The Constitution says "Shall not be infringed."

So tell me how there are no worries.
How often do you get pulled over by the Gestapo Police in your country. I can not remember the last time a Police Officer pulled me over in my country. The Police here love their freedom also and they Police by the Constitution. If it is not too late I suggest you migrate..

Judge without knowing the facts often?
This was a family that hung out in an area half hour away from our cabin. Every time we'd be on our way home, we'd see them. No bird feeders involved. Just a two lane road in the middle of nowhere; also called God's Country.
And you think I'm really supposed to know they are in the road and run over there every time and chase them out. LMAO
You sure do have a lot of problems in God's Country. Maybe God is trying to tell you something?

You know how Bill and Hill met?
They were seeing the same girl.

The new Hillbilly Airport has the Monica Lewinsky Cigar Bar. I recommend you get the cigars in plastic wrappers, something "fishy"about the others.

And I could sure use those motorcyclists. Some idiot ran over a family of turkeys. The whole damn family with young ones we had been watching grow all summer! That driver needs to be taught a lesson.
Were the turkeys in the road? It my opinion that the driver taught those turkeys a lesson! I drove semi truck for years. I killed everything imaginable . Ran over lots of dogs, coyote, deer , opossum ,coon ect. I never swerved a bit. Im not taking a chance of having a wreck trying to miss some stupid animal. We installed a cow catcher grill on the semi so that hitting deer didn't damage it. There was a woman in a van that swerved to miss a turtle on the road. She lost control and overturned in a water filled ditch. She survived but several children drowned. If the Curmudgeon or someone like him had came by earlier and pancaked that turtle maybe they wouldn't have died. If we run over all the animals stupid enough to play in the road pretty soon only those with good genetics that avoided roads would be present. Here is a joke! why did the chicken cross the road? Answer to show the opossum & armadillo that it could be done.

God tells me you are very shallow and narrow-minded. Not everyone can live on Warriors little piece of property and live exactly as Warrior does.

I love it here! The politics might suck, but the weather is mild, the severe storms and natural disasters are few, the northern forests are beautiful, the changing seasons are spectacular, the creepy crawlers are almost non-existent, and the birding is GREAT!

I want to apologize to you then. I am sorry. I thought the constant bitching, moaning and whining about losing all of your freedoms at work and in public made you hate it there, it led me to believe that you didn't like it in your country. I am so confused about you foreigners. Please forgive me..

Yes, Arkansas hills are beautiful. So is West Texas..... Some big hills there too! It's different and beautiful in it's own way, and definitely not bare to a bird lover like me. I have traveled to West Texas many times for the sole purpose of finding birds, especially some nice rarities like the Montezuma Quail and Varied Bunting. Vegetation is diverse too.

I grew up in Eastern New Mexico right across from West Texas. I have been all over both states, while I grant it everyplace has it's own beauty I will also say that West Texas has much less beauty than most. It's actually ugly..
