Screw the Politicians!

The title says it all for me. I am tired of hearing all the outrageous lies, spread with straight faces and the sincere desire that all conservatives "would just die"! Their words delivered by one of their hollywood elitists. In order to keep my sanity what little is left, I'm going to, for the most part,refrain from indulging in more of the same ranting as has gone on before. For the conservative folks I'm just preaching to the choir, and to all the libtards it is a useless endeavor as they have ALL drunk deeply from the well of stupidness and assimilated its poison deep into their physche and their fat globules!! Although on occasion I may loose control of myself and say something like, F*** OBAMA!

 So, back to the post about piggies, turkeys, etc. The piggies have been through some trying times and two of them have succumbed to some kind of stomach virus that they kept passing around between themselves. It appears to have run its course as of this date and two of the remaining 4 have begun to put on weight. They are still about 4 weeks behind in their growth. The other two are even further than that behind, but I do believe that by late Nov. they should be ready to pass into piggie heaven..

 As to those prolific turkeys, well things there have been mighty slow. Of the nine eggs we incubated, only one was hatched. Right after he was de-egged, we started 31 Rhode Island Red/Plymouth Rock eggs not knowing which rooster was the most desirous of propagating his species, or should I just say "horny", we had no idea what we would get. Turns out 23 days later we had 5 RR Reds and 19 PR's. Still no idea even now, as to the gender of any of them. Any that commence to laying eggs and will be, by default, considered Pullets. The others will be also considered by default, Supper, or Dinner, or Fingers, whatever the case may be.

 After a few weeks in a brooder with the 3 week older poult,(turkey), until they were completely feathered out, they were moved to the outside run where for some reason their genes from a few million years ago came surging to the fore and in the best imitation of their Velociraptor ancestors, they turned on their nest mate, young Mr. turkey and pecked him to death by bleeding him out through removal of his appendage that grows from just above his bill. Not sure what it is called. This discourse to be continued in the next post which shall appear post haste I Hope! TIFN

I feel you my friend. I think dirty politics is everywhere. Politicians are making such words without proving something after they have been elected.
