Well this sheds a new light on my
Zen Master living in a rural cave
in Tibet.
Good Lord.

Clearly... I will not be financially
supporting any students,faculty, or
campus at Berkeley now or in the
foreseeable future.

I will continue to use Buchla Electronic
Musical Instruments Berkeley, Ca.
For open mindedness and open ears.
No more , no less.

Berkeley bigotry at its best. S&F

Okay, well we can probably run tractor engines on methanol, which will be the first couple cuts of ethanol production by distillation, and we're going to need ethanol for medical purposes, disifectants, as well as degreasing engines, as well as getting drunk on the stuff. Come to think of it, it's pretty easy to convert any diesel engine to use biodiesel. What happens when it turns out that yeast saves mankind?

Hold my beer and get ready to watch this....

I live about a mile off the paved road. The county commissioner gets the road plowed in the winter (state is completely uninvolved.). I have a gun range, a bow range, and a throwing-axe range out behind the house.

I'm waiting to take a deer from the side porch with the bow I made using an ax, a sandstone, and a spokeshave.

There hasn't been a property crime filed on this road in thirty years.

Tell my again about what I'm missing in the city.

Why, my country brother, you have been missing the music of city life! The cacophony of the street! Day and night, you will never feel alone, for just within earshot you will hear human activity of all sorts! The best, if I do say so myself, is the noises observed from adjoining apartments! The passion of lovemaking, the passion of domestic warfare, the smashing of plates, the weeping of the children, the joys of rambunctious abandon smacking barefoot upon vinyl flooring. The eternal, internal, struggle of wondering when is enough enough, when should I call the police, or should I just go knock on the door and ask if everything's okay, avoiding the police altogether. That's what good neighbors do, after all! They first, and foremost, avoid police involvement. Mark of a good neighbor, right there. Don't call the cops in the city. Even if they help you, everyone else will think you harmed them, somehow.

So you see, city life is no different than the country life to which you're accustomed. Except the noise. And the cops. And the noise.

It seems its true what we are told about rural America:

- the people there are good people.
- the people there are mistrusting any city beyond about 5k people, because "there be dragons", aka crime, drugs, more crime. And black people. And slums. And you will be robbed as soon as you cross the city border. Sin city!

This simple preconception goes in both directions:

- the people there in rural America are racists.
- the people there want simple solutions to complex problems, because they are simple people.

Prejudice is an ugly aspect.

Mr. "Rural people bad" - Berkley idiot, is more than welcome to come out here and tell this country boy redneck some of that crap nonsense to my face, then we'll leave him on his own for a while to see what kinds of decisions he makes!!

fact of the matter is they are afraid of the wide open country and the people who manage to survive here. Typical Socialist viewpoint we need to keep everyone together where we can control them. Then kill them when they don't conform.

Somethin tells me he wouldn't be into 15-18 hour days, every day.

Speaking of which, I've got to get my boys boots off the dryer and see if he's ready for the school bus.

Then I've got animals to tend to, a truck that needs an oil change/greased.
And a repack of tools for work today.

Hauled in more wood and refilled the stove at 4:30, you know - morning stuff.

4:30am-10:30pm every day. I would love for Mr. Berkeley come out and give it a shot.

Then explain to him that right now is the easy part of the year. Pre-thanksgiving/deer season break as I call it.

So some idiot has an idiotic opinion and you're pissed off about it, why not just ignore it and use your energy for something that makes you happy.


My opinion, yep he is an idiot. Bashing the very people who put food on his table - oh wait - if you live in the city the grocery store does that, not rural people, any intelligent city person knows that.

Actually, my first thought when I read this earlier was: A liberal admitting what progressive liberals really think about flyover average middle American people. You know, those who put Trump in office. It kind of summed up the Democratic Party attitude toward flyover US citizens.

It costs too much to give them healthcare? other services? Ok, so let's force them all into the efficient city and see how long the city stores supply you with food, or leather for clothing and shoes, or pot for you to smoke.

You sure opened a can of worms here, so I will add to it. Cost. What does it cost to run utilities to a sub division compared to a home ten miles out of town? Do they pay extra to run and maintain these rural services? Clearing snow through out town whats the cost compared to plowing 10 miles of road so a person can get to their rural home? Do they pay extra in taxes? No that would be unfair.



Shoot yeah?

Why run electricity out to farms? What do they need to be living way out there for?

Clearing snow is expensive in rural areas, force them all into the city.

So much more efficient.

Everyone should be forced into the city.

Then what happens when the grocery store runs out of food because there is no one in the inefficient rural areas to grow it?

You are right, it is not worth the extra cost to have people live on farms and produce food for the nation. After all, doesn't every intelligent city person know the grocer is where food comes from?

Duh.

Jackson Kernion, according to his website, has been teaching multiple philosophy courses as a graduate student instructor at UC-Berkeley since 2013


So, he’s teaching PHIL 101 for a stipend for the last SIX YEARS.

Sounds like the kind of guy you’d want to take advice from.

I guess I’ll add to the pile of commentary here ... this is an obscene, ludicrous, unnecessary comment that sustains the trip of ignorant-ass Coastal elitism.

“Rural” Americans are America, the same as “city folk” ... as well as all the rest of us. Christ on a crutch.

If you need help in the middle of a big city people will just walk by you in their self-absorbed stupor. If you need help in a rural area everyone will come to your rescue. There are way nicer people in the country.

Or stand there and record something so they can post it on their social media instead of helping

Well after very short light reading look at the source. Berkley Idiotfornia !!! I will bet this idiot does not even know where the milk on the grocery shelf comes from. Oh let me guess this city boy milks cockroaches. My question to him is where do you think your food comes from 3d printers?

I did Dentistry in a rural town for 20 years. These are salt of the earth good people. Would do anything for you. May God bless the farmer who risks life around very dangerous machinery and the damn chemicals that they are forced to use. It is the city folk who are spoiled, ungrateful and mouthy. Those country people do not shoot their mouths off, have a deep relationship with God and provide the rest of us with nourishment.

I grew up in two major cities. I've firsthand experience. I will never live in a major city again. It's that awful.

There is less crime. There are places in this country, believe it or not, where people still talk about that last time something was stolen 30 years ago. Find me a city where that happens.

Drugs are everywhere, but they are easier to acquire in the city. It's hard to support a drug habit out here, because the drugs keep one from being able to hold an honest job and stealing is difficult when everyone around you is armed and watching the neighbor's place while they are gone. There are also a lot less homes to steal from within walking distance. So most move to the cities where it's everyone for themselves and there's plenty of law enforcement around to protect them.

There are just as many black people here per capita as there are in the cities... more, quite a bit more, if you consider certain cities. The difference is we don't round them up and keep them in slums so it's harder for news channels to find a whole bunch of black people. Here, they're just part of the community.

A slum, by definition, is a location that is unkempt, dirty, and inhabited by criminals. I already addressed the criminal aspect above, and the unkempt and dirty part is obviously the choice of those who live there. No one is responsible for cleaning one's property but oneself.

“Some, I assume, are good people."


I remember a time when the left completely lost their sh*t when a certain candidate used those exact words.
