    Goats are cool, and increasingly popular amongst hobby farmers in my county.

    very well put Dan

    The empire is falling
    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Bush wasn't my choice but still.......

    Congratulations Jeff, El Guapo, MichealSkis and all Republican voters! The republican party showed up strong and kicked some but yesterday. Everyone outside the party could learn a lesson or two from your parties efforts.

    Goats are fun animals. They have much more personality than most.

    and yet another angle would be to say that more people voted against Bush than any president in history.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    But the fact that they didn't REALLY vote for Kerry is where they failed.

    Well, as Ted Rall put it so baldly, the NeoCon agenda will certainly solve the unemployment problems exacerbated by the Bush team. Amazing what a multi-front war will do to unemployment once the draft is reinstated.

    Should we start a thread for setting up care packages for the newly drafted sons (and daughters) of posters now caught up in the endless wars required by empire? I'll be sure to send a care package to your unit in Damascus, Michaelskis.

    The Draft = Funny.

    Is that the Michael Moore talking point for the morning?

    I don't think that we deserve any congratulations but thank you. All I did was voice my opinion and made sure that I voted. Which is something that we all get to do. I do think that something needs to be done to eliminate all the mud slinging in the future. Both candidates are good family men, both have the same goal (to help the USA in the only way they know how), it is just that they are looking in different directions, one I agree with, the other I do not. I am happy to see that moral issues have become important again.

    I do want to apologize to anyone I may have offended during our discussions. I had no intentions at making anything into a personal attack on them.

    I am not holding my breath until I hear Kerry say "Congratulations Mr. President" to W.

    Do you think that Kerry end the Ohio thing?

    I think that the next step would need to be putting this election behind us and both parties work together for the common good of the world.

    Hopefully all the counting is done by this evening.

    Kerry called to say congratulations Mr. President. And with that, it is done.

    Angora is great material. I love the feel of natural fibers.

    Have you ever had goat cheese? Very good! I stay away from goat's milk, though.
