Majere,

A couple of posts up on this thread, you mentioned a "MacKenzie". Who was this person?

My reason for asking: that is an unusual spelling of the name - I have relatives that spelled their name that way, one was a very famous opera singer.

MacKenzie. Author of several ''receipt'' books. Actually there were two who collaberated, and were not father/son as some believe. There was a 5,000 and a 10,000 count special series. Considered one of the top six producers of the genra, others are Scientific American, Dicks, Hasluck, Henley, and Young.

The 5,000 count one is quite common. The 10,000 count is rare. I have one in very poor condition. I also have Saxons reprint of it, in readable condition.

The Librum has the SA, the Dicks, one Hasluck, the Henley, and the Youngs online. I would like to see a MacKenzie in the mix to ''round out''. I particularly like Hasluck, he was more ''handy man'' oriented than the others.

There are quite a few users there that specifically attack amish and mennonites there! They also have problems in playing nice with others that do not subscribe completely to the democratic underground view, as they believe that DU''rs are the chosen people of God himself!

I just go over there to be a PITA.

Steve I saw the thread about poaching and what that guy said to you, accusing you of needing to ask permission for everything you do. Knowing your thoughts on the proper role of government, I thought that had to be a real slap in the face! Ouch! That guy doesn''t know anything about you.

Well, wannabe, the truth be known that guy is the one who asks government for permission to do everything in their life. They couldn''t live off the land if their life depended on it because folks like that are so used to govenrment taking care of every problem they have. Folks like that guy have no idea on what the rule of law means, as to them it means its law until they need to break it.
I still do not understand why they would need to break the law to feed their family in this country when you can get foodstamps when you need them, especially if you have children.
On top of that, with some of the guns that folks like that brag about having, then why are they hungry. Sell the gun, and the 1000 rounds of ammo they have and feed their family, OR spend some of the money they were spending on ammo and guns and buy a license to hunt with!
I do not understand the mindset in this country where its ok to violate the law when it benefits them.

Farside,

I am not welcome over there due to my association with Majere. It is he that they do not like. And what Steve says about their attitude to our kind is true. So I simply no longer visit that board.

Steve,

I don''t understand some of that. Just as well. But I did get a laugh at ''DU''.

I tried out that board (HT) for a while--mostly lurking, but I never got the warm-and-fuzzy feeling I get here. I never could put my finger on quite what it was, just a sort of coldness I can''t quite nail down. At first I thought it would be a good place to learn a lot of homesteading info, and as yet there might be some practical info to be gleaned, but I just don''t find myself going back there over and over again like here. TMEN, on the other hand, is almost an addiction.

Steve, your comments shed some light on this. Took me a while to figure this out. Funny how message boards can have a personality of their own like that. Quite a while back (a couple months ago), I posted a "I''m new here" type thread over there and only got maybe two brief responses. Over here when I did that, I generated a long thread with people telling me their life stories, etc. Interresting difference.

What''s this "democratic underground"? I''ve never heard of it before, and what is the relationship to HT? I googled the term, and came up with some site that has to do with the Democratic party and has political satire, etc. Is that what you''re talking about?

DU, is a site that its sole purpose is to bash the president or anyone, that doesn''t believe in socialism/communism. The majority there are "Progressive" which is the new name for communism, and if you don''t agree with them, you get banned.

You think there were hateful commnets here, you haven''t seen nothing yet!

You can go mess with them if you want, their at www.democraticunderground.com

Steve,

I disagree with your description of Democtratic Undergound when you say it, "is a site that its sole purpose is to bash the president or anyone, that doesn''t believe in socialism/communism. The majority there are ''Progressive'' which is the new name for communism, and if you don''t agree with them, you get banned. agree with them, you get banned."

Agreed, the site typically presents opposition to conservative and theocratic points of view, but to characterize it as "communism" is inaccurate. Many different viewpoints are represented (just as TMEN forums do not represent a single view).

Many people who are anti-communist can support non-conservative, non-theistic viewpoints. To lump together all those who are non-conservative and non-theistic and to call them all communists is no different than to lump all Christians together and call them anti-freedom.

Several people from TMEN might enjoy www.democraticunderground.com and might support some of the ideas presented. One topic of discussion now is the Patrick Fitzgerald investigation -- including the complete text of Fitzgerald''s news conference (including a question and answer session)and some reasoned discussion of its implication and some real insight into the whole matter.

It is not unpatriotic to disagree with the president, his policies, his wars and his employees. Democracy without the right to express differing viewpoints is not democracy at all.

And all this time I thought we were a Republic. By the way, wasn''t it sometime about the era of Woodrow Wilson that "democracy" became the term of choice.

If that is all the the other board is about, then they are probably not worth the time it takes to load the page anyways.
