Very tasty and healthy. Not like watered down store bought chicken, enough of the wild to know it is wild.

We don't do the posh driven hunts, simply a good dog or two and nice stroll through the cover wearing orange. We flush them and hopefully hold the proper lead. Very blue collar, a very rural American tradition. It is both sport and a harvest. Pheasants on average live to two years or less before succumbing to various ends. Weather, predators, road kill etc. Given the sexes are easy to distinguish it is only legal ( more of a tradition than science based) to shoot cock birds. The dogs flush them all and most commonly you or hunting partner will call out "hen" when it is a hen or "rooster" when it is a cock. Then you hear either "good shot" or "f**k me how did I miss that one"!

As for weaponry, my choice is a forty year old Benelli over under in 12 gauge that was my first decent shotgun purchase and will go to a daughter when I kick the bucket.


Do you ever hunt those feral hogs?



We don't have them here in MT. More of a Southern thing.

A friend of mine has a place in Sussex and he has the wild boars causing trouble.

What, you're not going to comment on how wrong you were about the unmasking? Just going to conveniently skip over that news?

Also, why would I care about Russian disinformation, especially Russian disinformation for someone who isn't on the ballot?

Does it hurt knowing your entire world is crashing down around you and we're witnessing the last gasps of an administration barreling toward the end?



Huh? You sound pretty fired up in your support of corruption.

I am holding my fire until I have some time.

Will be very interesting to see how many on the left really care about Biden being caught red handed enriching himself in a pay to play scheme with foreign companies.

They don't give a fk.

All they think is ......... "Well, at least he's not Trump".

Honestly as someone with no party affiliation its just the blatant hypocrisy that sticks in my craw.

They're acting the same way they did when Hillary was running, basically not taking Trump seriously (again) or his voter base, this is the main reason I want Trump to win, the lolz will be exceptional.

When the Democrats are finally humbled and stop p*ssing around playing what's amounted to the most pathetic political games I've ever seen in my days and actually straighten themselves out and put forward a proper candidate I may be back on board, but for now, nope.

Imagine talking about supporting corruption when you're happily voting for Trump. The lack of self-awareness. Pot, meet kettle.

And "Huh?" indeed. Don't be a useful idiot to Russian disinformation. Be better than Giuliani.

I hate everything about the way the US Supreme Court is picked but I honestly think Biden will and should even out the numbers

Having the president pick judges is not the way to hold power to account. IMO let Biden do what hes going to do, then you need constitutional change to find a new way of picking Justices

I would suggest Justices nominated by the other Justices as follows

1) An interim arrangement (which would last decades) which would see an equal number of the current justices picked by republican and democrat presidents, appoint a new justice. If the political numbers are uneven at the time, justices nominated by the over-represented party would draw lots to decide who sits out the process

2) Once the number of Justices selected as above reaches a pre agreed number, say seven or eight, then moving forward only they would appoint new Justices


Buttigieg had a solution to fix the SCOTUS: 5 justices affiliated with Democrats, 5 justices affiliated with Republicans, and 5 apolitical justices chosen by the Democratic and Republican justices.

So only one more year of pro-rape? :hiding:

Won't Barrett be the 6th Christian fundamentalist judge in the supreme court, if sworn in?

She'd be the sixth Catholic (Roberts, Thomas, Alito, Sotomayor, Kavanaugh). There's also two Jews (Breyer, Kagan) and one Protestant (Gorsuch).

The SC is turning towards an originalists interpretation of the Constitution.
It's doing so because that is what the democratic republic of the USA has decided, using the electoral and governmental system that has worked for hundreds of years.

As usual, when the left doesn't like the result, they want to change the rules so they can get what they want.

There is no problem at all with having 6 Republican appointments to the bench. The associates on the SC only have one guiding principle - and that is the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. They are a check on Congress and the Executive branch - as intended - to ensure illegitimate laws are not passed and enforced onto the people.

What the left seem to want is representation on the court of an political IDEOLOGY - and that is wholly wrong.

What a stupid idea - aligning the court to political parties.
Anyone who would come up with such a stupid idea has a fundamental misunderstanding of the role of the SC and the judicial system in the USA as a whole.

Well the hypocrisy goes both ways - but I still think it's probably 10% on both extremes that are screwing up this world.
Looking back I actually think it was the far right that turned all this political crap up to a 10 (from where it had always been a 6 or 7) after Obama was elected. They couldn't accept a black guy as President. The left have turned it up to a 20 since then and it's getting worse. It would be all just a big joke if were not for the fact that these extremists seem to hold the levers of power and the rest of us have to suffer.
