My grandparents had a farm too. Learned all about hard work, early mornings, and long nights.
3 rules of farm life:
Be at the table when suppers ready, if you plan on eating.
Your "chores" are work you do after you worked all day, if you plan on doing anything else other than work, and your chores have to be done every day.
Don't piss grandpa off.
I love your 3 rules of farm life.
Can I use that? I want to frame it and put it on the wall somewhere.
I plumb recon that no’s Irahabians are flexin on any type holler or dirt switch back road ! I hypotinized that there be no’s ways of some kinda terrorizists are gettin past the Squidbillies !

Just read these two articles as apparently during the Obama administration, one writer claims much happened here to favor the development of Iranian Sleeper Cells such that many sympathetic to Iran were established here in the USA. You can read that here and decide for yourself. Plus we can see what plays out in the future
Law Enforcement Today
The killing of Iran’s Quds Force General, Qassem Soleimani, has sparked much debate across the aisle of whether or not this action is an act of war by President Trump. Regardless of where you stand, the act of terrorism has increased for months before the US response. The question is, is America ready for attacks in the homeland? As a country, we have been blinded by the possibility of a concentrated attack on US soil and many Americans, including our politicians, have forgotten the grim reality of 9/11 and not given our adversaries the respect they deserve.
The above article was linked to the following article which names those among us sympathetic to Iran and would sell any of us out on the cheap. Its a fresh story, just released on January 4, 2020.
January 9, 2020 America May Be About To Be Blindsided: We Were Warned Long Ago Of The 'Enemies Within' But Ignored The Warnings
So in your opine in the above just some counter INTEL fantasy or does it have some merit?
It was THIS post I was talking about. It has nothing to do with the article you posted. I happen to be in the great wild Northwest. People around here have bumper stickers that allude to the place already being “ full” and it’s one of the least populated places in the States. But again, we have people like Jeff Bridges, Dennis Quaid and Michael Keaton. Also the reincarnated Calamity Jane! And she’s quite the sharpshooter.

Well think about it. In the sticks in the Northern woods and forests and mountains are predominately white folk. In the South many who live in the woods and forests and mountains are a blend of white and black. Many among all are former military. One common theme among all of them is the have a terrible dental co-pay plan but they also use Front Porch Logic and all are armed. Same as those in the mountains of Afghanistan who fought against the Soviet Union back in the day. Toss in Vietnam and other small wars and who one in the end.
Yup, Its Hillbilly time. Then toss in the Bikers to boot for arms trafficking and whatever.
. No but they sure could get into the States via the porous Mexican Border. Also the border up

MY comment regarding "Iranian sleeper cells" in rural areas.
"Out here" we may not know if someone is Iranian or Egyptian or whatever. It doesn't really matter, somebody has to own & run the gas stations & Convenience stores that suffice for groceries & sundries until it's time to "go to town" to the super-target/walmart, etc.
SO I'm not on board with the concept that 'foreigners' will automatically be recognized and suspect out in the sticks.
Thankfully, we're not looking for Mexican sleeper cells here in Texas. That would be a real problem.
