I can`t hide from all this progress...

county
Hey FB friends, I need your help. I have talked with hundreds of parents, coaches, educators, and others about a great opportunity for
Pulaski County and it's youth. I want to study the feasibility of opening a first class indoor sports complex that will provide facilities for
all kinds of indoor sports including archery, cheer/gymnastics, basketball, volleyball, soccer, etc. We can host state and national
tournaments on a regular basis, bringing unprecedented tourism dollars into our county. In addition we can provide the needed
facilities to accommodate our children's practice schedules to remain competitive at the state and regional level.
To do this we need partners at many levels. County, city, schools, and private enterprise. Let's sound off together to show
our support for such a great investment in our youth and the economy of our county. Thank you and God bless!

You must be able to run fast and for a long way ............ seems to me that the reach will be far and wide - someone that physically able must be able to head down under?

I've gotta get out of KY at least...just finished reading Hillbilly Elegy by JD Vance...I'm not as proud of my hillbilly roots as the characters in the book...but the Irish were killing each other not so long ago , so I doubt finding much solace there. ..

“I remember watching an episode of The West Wing about education in America, which the majority of people rightfully believe is the key to opportunity. In it, the fictional president debates whether he should push school vouchers (giving public money to schoolchildren so that they escape failing public schools) or instead focus exclusively on fixing those same failing schools. That debate is important, of course—for a long time, much of my failing school district qualified for vouchers—but it was striking that in an entire discussion about why poor kids struggled in school, the emphasis rested entirely on public institutions. As a teacher at my old high school told me recently, “They want us to be shepherds to these kids. But no one wants to talk about the fact that many of them are raised by wolves.”

“President Obama came on the scene right as so many people in my community began to believe that the modern American meritocracy was not built for them. We know we’re not doing well. We see it every day: in the obituaries for teenage kids that conspicuously omit the cause of death (reading between the lines: overdose), in the deadbeats we watch our daughters waste their time with. Barack Obama strikes at the heart of our deepest insecurities. He is a good father while many of us aren’t. He wears suits to his job while we wear overalls, if we’re lucky enough to have a job at all. His wife tells us that we shouldn’t be feeding our children certain foods, and we hate her for it—not because we think she’s wrong but because we know she’s right. ”

Perceptive words - I think he may have omitted a word though in his description of why so much animosity has been directed towards Pres. Obama and his family ......................... from the outside looking in that is.

I see all the chanting of "lock her up" has come to nought. Apparently despite a whole campaign being built on complete assertion that the opponent was a criminal there is now no longer any need for her to be pursued, persecuted or even prosecuted ......................... the world is watching to see how many of the other chants become redundant ............

title and opening
Anthem For The Forgotten Man
BEN JUDAH
December/January 2016/17

J.D. Vance: His memoir has become required reading for understanding Trump’s election victory (©️Naomi McColloch)

When J.D. Vance first opened the Word document that eventually became this book, he thought he was writing his long goodbye to the rotting white America that seemed no longer to make history. In fact, he was writing a book that has become an essential guide to Donald Trump’s astonishing election victory. This is a moving memoir about the people Hillary Clinton called “deplorables” and Trump (echoing FDR) called the forgotten man. In decades to come, when politics undergraduates study Trump’s rise, it will feature at the top of the reading list, so crucial is it to understanding why these Americans rejected her.

Vance was born in broken-home poverty in Middletown, Ohio, the son of a violent and abusive clan of hillbilly transplants, gun-toting folk lured in the 1950s from the valleys of rural Kentucky to the steady wages of the factories. Today he is a San Francisco resident and successful venture capitalist, and is seen in Washington as one of conservatism’s brightest young thinkers.


impressed me that someone backed up my thought that FDR has been re-incarnated cheers

“If you believe that hard work pays off, then you work hard; if you think it’s hard to get ahead even when you try, then why try at all? Similarly, when people do fail, this mind-set allows them to look outward. I once ran into an old acquaintance at a Middletown bar who told me that he had recently quit his job because he was sick of waking up early. I later saw him complaining on Facebook about the “Obama economy” and how it had affected his life. I don’t doubt that the Obama economy has affected many, but this man is assuredly not among them. His status in life is directly attributable to the choices he’s made, and his life will improve only through better decisions. But for him to make better choices, he needs to live in an environment that forces him to ask tough questions about himself. There is a cultural movement in the white working class to blame problems on society or the government, and that movement gains adherents by the day.”

The outcome of America’s presidential election is perhaps less surprising in light of one salient fact: in 2015 less than 57 per cent of adult Americans turned up on the Labor Department’s payroll survey, against 78 per cent in 1969, and 66 per cent in 1939, at the end of the Great Depression. Less than half of adult Americans have full-time jobs. A sixth of adult American men are idle, living on disability or other government support, sponging off family, or eking out a bare living in the informal economy. In light of the economic facts, the nature of Donald Trump’s campaign as well as the response it received from American voters both seem rational, in contrast to the portrayal of both by the establishment punditklatura.

Something very big is wrong with the United States. Americans do not know exactly what it is. Illegal immigration and job loss due to imports are emotional issues in themselves, but they also stand in for a range of concerns: the federal debt, unsustainable retirement and medical benefits, and growing dependency. America decided on November 8 that the problem requires a dramatic solution of some kind, and chose the candidate who promised to do big things, even if he is not yet sure just what these things should be.

Donald Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again” recalls Ronald Reagan and “Morning in America,” but his message is more redolent of Franklin Roosevelt. Not since Roosevelt has such a large proportion of the American population found itself on the economic sidelines, and not since Roosevelt has economic malaise proven so resistant to conventional therapy. In fact, Trump gave a nod to Roosevelt’s appeal to “the forgotten man”, promising in his acceptance speech to stand by “the forgotten men and women of our country”.

Should make us feel bad for native Americans (Indians) if it is true and beyond an opinion or an anti-religion slam. Who did you or I replace by force and war? Are we willing to give it all back and take a boat back to the old country? I doubt it greatly.

Doesn't take too much study about current Zimbabwean economy to see that proclaimed bad was not all bad in this type of rhetoric. Just one example of many.

One day some bright soul will write the truth: you cannot export democracy or a republic form of government to another country without a population being in place with morals and desire to be responsible. Otherwise it is big and strong prevail until the next big and strong overtakes: dog eat dog.

exactly, and the bible to ease the conscience while eating...maybe that is where the custom of blessing the food started...

Mike I think that you hit it on the head in your post about employment and where we were going. I do not know if we are headed in the right direction now but it would be insanity to do the same thing over and over and expect a different result.
About God what I know is 80 years is not a very big speck in eternity and he offered us a way to him. It is all of our own choosing how we accept this offer.

I`m glad to hear Mark Day is having a really good fall selling bulls...

Long time bull KY customer that has supported me from year two called today checking up if I was still around, it had been 4 years or so...I was glad to hear,
but not surprised that our bulls held up better than the bulls they bought elsewhere...I`m putting him down for 5 yearlings in the spring, that`s the way
to buy two year old bulls, a year early...

clarifying, there is no particular genetic reason for the above, more of a proper bull development environment...

I bought my first Keeney bull at March sale 1999 for $1800. He was sight unseen but I had taken a quick glimpse of the program a snowy afternoon a couple weeks prior. My visit down there was spurred by a small ad in the AJ with a calf picture and the caption "is this the best calf born on fescue pasture"? or something of that sort. I felt like I wasn't just buying a bull but a philosophy based on commercial $ common sense and profit. I have sold more bulls this Fall than any other. No real idea why really other than I have a good product at a fair price. I am increasing my herd size without really increasing my work or production costs from before 1999. Breeding 53 females is really no small feat considering how little time I actually spend farming. I think I will be up to 60-65 in a couple years. I could not do it the mainstream way. I have not opened an AJ in years or registered an animal. Here is a picture of my fi5rst bull. For whatever it is worth he is a Fraser out of an Encore daughter. His name was Essential as he carried many of the traits needed for a commercial operation . I like to think we have only improved many times over since then. Thanks Mike for all you have done for me.

The worst thing about renewable genes is you cannot keep your customer base coming back for more as they leave with a great product that is renewable. What a great way to move forward. Bob

Mike,

$1800 bulls are like cell phones - use them a couple years and then toss aside for a new one. No need to keep them or semen around when there should be a better one waiting.

Why`s everybody {exaggeration for effect and staying true to the old song Smile ) always picking on EPD`s ?
LL loved epds; so do I...paraphrasing Larry, "a number will suffice ... and ultimately it will become synonymous with the
characteristics the population portrays"
there is no better description of the breeding value of certain measurable characteristics {mostly terminal } than epds..
.epd`s are not to blame for the cow condition I own pictured below; top 1% in the breed for marbling, RE, and $B; dam
of top selling ET bulls ! She is merely a cow in the wrong environment for her genetic characteristics...I`ve not been fooled
either; her type even substantiates for me her top 1% for marbling; she looks more like a Wagyu than any cow I own !
I`ll feed her silage soon; and yes, I`ll use her bull calf, bred for the same purposes with the same epds...growth, production
and quality BEEF ! I just won`t keep the daughters, they will be BEEF! It`s fun having my own little terminal unit here {5 cows}
for my own use and experience...let`s lay off the EPD`s Jimmy Buffet, if you`ve got the wrong cattle in your pasture, it`s your own damn fault

Mike,
I think you would agree always enjoyable delivering a bull to the neighbor of next AA president. I think she is planning to stay in the cattle business many more years from the looks of her investment in new fence and comfort feeling working newborn calves with her Safety Zone Catcher. Here she is explaining how it works to my 80+ year old passenger that still has a herd of cows of his own. I am not sure if his eyes were so big because of the calf catcher or Peggy. BTW- she did mention being big facebook buddies with you.
