  3. doesn't get any better than that...
  4. this was sent to me ,the writer has a better sense of reality than many that age... https://fee.org/articles/college-student-my-generation-is-blind-to-the-prosperity-around-us/ This article was written by a 26 yr old college student by the name of Alyssa Ahlgren, who was in grad school for her MBA. It's a short article but definitely worth a read. College Student: My Generation Is Blind to the Prosperity Around Us Destroying the free market will undo what millions of people have died to achieve. I'm sitting in a small coffee shop near Nokomis (Florida) trying to think of what to write about. I scroll through my newsfeed on my phone looking at the latest headlines of presidential candidates calling for policies to "fix" the so-called injustices of capitalism. I put my phone down and continue to look around. I see people talking freely, working on their MacBook's, ordering food they get in an instant, seeing cars go by outside, and it dawned on me. We live in the most privileged time in the most prosperous nation and we've become completely blind to it. Vehicles, food, technology, freedom to associate with whom we choose. These things are so ingrained in our American way of life we don't give them a second thought. We are so well off here in the United States that our poverty line begins 31 times above the global average. Thirty-One Times!!! Virtually no one in the United States is considered poor by global standards. Yet, in a time where we can order a product off Amazon with one click and have it at our doorstep the next day, we are unappreciative, unsatisfied, and ungrateful. Our unappreciation is evident as the popularity of socialist policies among my generation continues to grow. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently said to Newsweek talking about the millennial generation, "An entire generation, which is now becoming one of the largest electorates in America, came of age and never saw American prosperity??? Never saw American prosperity! Let that sink in. When I first read that statement, I thought to myself, that was quite literally the most entitled and factually illiterate thing I've ever heard in my 26 years on this earth. Many young people agree with her, which is entirely misguided. My generation is being indoctrinated by a mainstream narrative to actually believe we have never seen prosperity. I know this first hand, I went to college, let's just say I didn't have the popular opinion, but I digress. Why then, with all of the overwhelming evidence around us, evidence that I can even see sitting at a coffee shop, do we not view this as prosperity? We have people who are dying to get into our country. People around the world destitute and truly impoverished. Yet, we have a young generation convinced they've never seen prosperity, and as a result, we elect some politicians who are dead set on taking steps towards abolishing capitalism. Why? The answer is this, my generation has only seen prosperity. We have no contrast. We didn't live in the great depression, or live through two world wars, the Korean War, The Vietnam War or we didn't see the rise and fall of socialism and communism. We don't know what it's like to live without the internet, without cars, without smartphones. We don't have a lack of prosperity problem. We have an entitlement problem, an ungratefulness problem, and it's spreading like a plague.
  5. actually if you hunt in an area that has a lot of fireplaces / wood stoves deer are use to the smell they don't think twice about it. never did that myself but have talked to a few who would let hunting clothes get all smoked up lol.i know I hunt near the state campsites and also behind a field of a guy who burns wood and sometimes during the right wind the smoke smell is strong at points the woods looks full of smoke but that never seems to bother the deer....
  6. several companies make the brush pants and bibs like the old wick briar and waterproof . I got my son the youth bibs from godwins they cost less than some but still a good quality didn't want to spend top $ on something that he will grow out of in a year or two tops. I have the original wick bibs and they are great and the ones I got my son are basically the same just a lot smaller. also I seen someone is making the original wick pants and bibs again . I also got a pair of brush pants from cabelas years ago that were real good jeans with a briar material on legs.... http://stores.godwinsoutdoorinc.com/godwins-briar-proof-clothing/ https://briarproofstore.com/bibs-pants/ https://www.huntsmart.com/collections/bibs-chaps

  10. basically if you want hot water when you jump in the shower the boiler has to maintain that temperature all the time...
